* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: His appearance in the ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Members Only" makes him highly sexist towards the Powerpuff Girls by denying their request to join his team just because they are girls. His rude treatment of the Powerpuff Girls is also suggested to have ageist motivations because he also refuses to take them seriously just because they're young.



* TookALevelInJerkass: His appearance in the ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Members Only", where he is portrayed as sexist and ageist towards the Powerpuff Girls.

Added DiffLines:

* CainAndAbel: Usually the prickly Abel to Dee Dee's oblivious Cain, but Dexter falls squarely into the former category when he and his future selves create a quintet of mechanized assassins to kill his sister as punishment for [[spoiler:saving human civilization when he was just inches away from doing so himself.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EarnYourHappyEnding: It takes a lot of hardship and more than a few decades, but Dexter's genius eventually makes the world a better (and smarter) place as Ego Trip shows.
* EmperorScientist: He grows up to be an incredibly benevolent, if scatterbrained, elderly inventor who presides over a sublime {{Utopia}}.


Added DiffLines:

* ThrowTheDogABone: Ego Trip, as the title implies, is basically an entire movie of Dexter finding out that all his efforts pay off...eventually.


Added DiffLines:

* WorldHealingWave: The purpose of the Neurotomic Protocore is to send out such a phenomenon which would boost the joint intellect of mankind to superhuman levels, eliminating ignorance and promoting universal peace & brotherhood. It can also do the exact opposite, sucking in the intelligence of human beings worldwide to solely enrich the mind of its user, which is why Mandark wanted it so bad. However, while Dexter was able to create the core itself when he was just a child, it would be decades until he or Mandark would find a way to actually tap into its power.

[[folder: Dial M for Monkey]]
!Monkey
[[quoteright:243:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dexters_lab_monk_9429.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Creator/FrankWelker, Creator/CoreyBurton (speaking voice in "The Lab of Tomorrow")

* TheAce: Monkey InUniverse is the most powerful and respected hero on the planet.
* ActionPet: When off duty, his personality is similar to Dee Dee's and he is often seen playing with her in the laboratory, but when it is time to save the world Monkey is extremely serious and heroic and risks his very life to ensure the safety of the world and those he loves.
* BadassAdorable: Monkey is considered to be one of the Dexterverse top superheroes.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: Apparently his energy field provides life support for himself and passengers.
* ABirthdayNotABreak: The banned "Barbequor" episode took place when the other heroes threw a birthday party for him, but even after he defeated the Barbequor and the Silver Spooner, Monkey wasn't able to enjoy his birthday because he then had to give Krunk a ride home and Krunk kept on giving very lousy directions on where his home was.
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: When Huntor's technology completely counteracts Monkey's powers, Monkey defeats the villain using only his skills, brains, and - uh - guerilla tactics.
* {{Determinator}}: In his fight with Rasslor, he kept on being knocked down, and ''wouldn't give up''. Rasslor threw the fight (and decided not to destroy the Earth) because of this.
* ADogNamedDog: A monkey named Monkey.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Thanks, CaptainObvious.
* FlyingBrick: He can generate an energy field around his body that gives him this set of powers.
* FurryReminder: Monkey is intelligent, but his instinctive reactions, body language and problem-solving skills are all quite simian.
* HeroicSpirit: He can be defeated (with humorous ease in some cases), but he'll ''never'' surrender.
* InterspeciesRomance: He is often paired with his sidekick and girlfriend Agent Honeydew on his missions who he cares about deeply and appears to posses a psychic link with her.
* LovesMyAlterEgo: Non-romantic example. Dexter admires the super hero Monkey and has no idea that his lab monkey leads a double life. He remains thoroughly unimpressed that his monkey failed to developed super powers.
* NarratorAllAlong: "The Lab of Tomorrow" ends with the revelation that he was the one narrating the episode. No explanation is given for how he became capable of human speech.
* OutOfFocus: His appearances became less frequent in the final two seasons. He did get a ''bizarre'' DayInTheLimelight episode, though.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Monkey is cute both in and out of costume.
* SecretIdentity: As Dexter's lab monkey. Dexter and his family are completely unaware of his double life.
* SuddenlyVoiced: Is revealed to have become able to speak at the end of "The Lab of Tomorrow".
* {{Superhero}}: Considered the world's greatest superhero.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Convinces Simion, another super-simian, to abandon his plan of destroying the Earth in favor of swinging around in a jungle. Not bad for somebody who can only make monkey noises.
* YourCheatingHeart: Despite having Agent Honeydew as a girlfriend, "A Quackor Cartoon" shows him falling in love with Quackor, and in the later episode "Used Ink", one of the things that he asked for was a girl monkey implying that his relationship with Quackor might be over and he is looking for a new love. However in one of the final episodes of the series "Dexter's Wacky Races", Monkey is shown to be back together with Agent Honeydew. All of this was never explained.

[[folder: Monkey]]
[[quoteright:243:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dexters_lab_monk_9429.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Creator/FrankWelker, Creator/CoreyBurton (speaking voice in "The Lab of Tomorrow")

* TheAce: Monkey InUniverse is the most powerful and respected hero on the planet.
* ActionPet: When off duty, his personality is similar to Dee Dee's and he is often seen playing with her in the laboratory, but when it is time to save the world Monkey is extremely serious and heroic and risks his very life to ensure the safety of the world and those he loves.
* BadassAdorable: Monkey is considered to be one of the Dexterverse top superheroes.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: Apparently his energy field provides life support for himself and passengers.
* ABirthdayNotABreak: The banned "Barbequor" episode took place when the other heroes threw a birthday party for him, but even after he defeated the Barbequor and the Silver Spooner, Monkey wasn't able to enjoy his birthday because he then had to give Krunk a ride home and Krunk kept on giving very lousy directions on where his home was.
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: When Huntor's technology completely counteracts Monkey's powers, Monkey defeats the villain using only his skills, brains, and - uh - guerilla tactics.
* {{Determinator}}: In his fight with Rasslor, he kept on being knocked down, and ''wouldn't give up''. Rasslor threw the fight (and decided not to destroy the Earth) because of this.
* ADogNamedDog: A monkey named Monkey.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Thanks, CaptainObvious.
* FlyingBrick: He can generate an energy field around his body that gives him this set of powers.
* FurryReminder: Monkey is intelligent, but his instinctive reactions, body language and problem-solving skills are all quite simian.
* HeroicSpirit: He can be defeated (with humorous ease in some cases), but he'll ''never'' surrender.
* InterspeciesRomance: He is often paired with his sidekick and girlfriend Agent Honeydew on his missions who he cares about deeply and appears to posses a psychic link with her.
* LovesMyAlterEgo: Non-romantic example. Dexter admires the super hero Monkey and has no idea that his lab monkey leads a double life. He remains thoroughly unimpressed that his monkey failed to developed super powers.
* NarratorAllAlong: "The Lab of Tomorrow" ends with the revelation that he was the one narrating the episode. No explanation is given for how he became capable of human speech.
* OutOfFocus: His appearances became less frequent in the final two seasons. He did get a ''bizarre'' DayInTheLimelight episode, though.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Monkey is cute both in and out of costume.
* SecretIdentity: As Dexter's lab monkey. Dexter and his family are completely unaware of his double life.
* SuddenlyVoiced: Is revealed to have become able to speak at the end of "The Lab of Tomorrow".
* {{Superhero}}: Considered the world's greatest superhero.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Convinces Simion, another super-simian, to abandon his plan of destroying the Earth in favor of swinging around in a jungle. Not bad for somebody who can only make monkey noises.
* YourCheatingHeart: Despite having Agent Honeydew as a girlfriend, "A Quackor Cartoon" shows him falling in love with Quackor, and in the later episode "Used Ink", one of the things that he asked for was a girl monkey implying that his relationship with Quackor might be over and he is looking for a new love. However in one of the final episodes of the series "Dexter's Wacky Races", Monkey is shown to be back together with Agent Honeydew. All of this was never explained.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Agent Honeydew]]
->Voiced by: Kath Soucie

* ActionGirl: As part of her agent training, she is a trained fighter who is proficient in firearms.
* BoyishShortHair: She has short black hair with curly bangs.
* HartmanHips: Agent Honeydew has wide hips. The bodysuit helps!
* InterspeciesRomance: Despite their different species' (and the questionable ethics of this), it appears that Monkey and Honeydew's relationship is very close and romantic, as both are often seen going out on dates when off duty, sharing romantic dinners and Monkey staying over at her house where they apparently bathe together while she grooms him.
* MsFanservice: She is a sexy spy.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Has pale skin and black hair.
* SpyCatsuit: She wears a violet-blue S.H.I.E.L.D.-style jumpsuit when is in mission.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Commander Chief]]
->Voiced by: Robert Ridgely (Season 1), Earl Boen (Season 2)

* BadassMustache: He has a mustache.
* BigGood: By way of being the head of the organization Agent Honeydew works for, he's the highest authority figure Monkey works for.
* EyepatchOfPower: He wears an eyepatch.

[[folder: Quackor the Fowl/Ducky]]
->Voiced by: Frank Welker

* EvilCounterpart: To Monkey. She is Mandark's pet duck and Monkey's arch-nemesis.
* FeatheredFiend: An evil duck.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:In her second appearance, due to falling in love with Monkey]].
* {{Lunacy}}: She becomes Quackor when the moonlight hits her. Sunlight restores her to normal.
* PunnyName: Quackor the ''Fowl''; "fowl" is a term for both ducks and chickens, while a homonym "foul" means "wicked" or "amoral".
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: According to the ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Bought and Scold", Quackor the Fowl is somehow one of their enemies.
* SamusIsAGirl: [[spoiler:Implied in her second appearance; she and Monkey not only fall in love, but she lays an egg. So she's either a girl or a MrSeahorse]].
* UndyingLoyalty: Implied to have this for Mandark in her debut episode, seeing as she goes off to destroy Dexter's lab after hearing Mandark mumble about wanting to do so in his sleep.

* TalkingAnimal: Unlike Monkey, Simion is quite eloquent.
[[/folder]]

!Justice Friends
[[folder: Major Glory]]
->Voiced by: Creator/RobPaulsen

* TheCape: Played for laughs - he tries to live up to his heroic principles, but tends toward obliviousness and narrow-mindedness.
* CaptainPatriotic: He even hawks a snack named "Justice Fruit Pies," and periodically recites lyrics or lines from famous American works (such as the national anthem, the Constitution, and the Pledge of Allegiance).
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Disappeared after the show was UnCancelled, along with the other Justice Friends. Though they did get an appearance in "Dexter's Wacky Races."
* CompressedVice: His appearance in the ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Members Only" showed he displayed traits of sexist behavior that was never displayed in this show otherwise he wouldn't have made Dee Dee his sidekick nor allow Miss Spell to join the Justice Friends.
* CrazyPrepared: He wears ''dozens'' of masks to conceal his face.
-->"When I say secret identity, I ''mean'' secret identity."
* {{Eagleland}}: Type 1 (perhaps)
* ExpressiveMask: His true face is never seen due to it always being concealed by his iconic golden mask.
* {{Expy}}: ComicBook/CaptainAmerica with Comicbook/{{Superman}}'s powers and a personality similar to [[WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast Space Ghost]]'s.
* LargeHam: Major Glory takes this UpToEleven.
* TheLeader: Of the Justice Friends.
* SmugSuper: He's pretty egotistical about his powers.
* TeamDad: He may also be the TeamMom depending on the situation.
* TookALevelInJerkass: His appearance in the ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Members Only", where he is portrayed as sexist and ageist towards the Powerpuff Girls.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Valhallen]]
->Voiced by: Creator/TomKenny

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Disappeared after the show was UnCancelled, along with the other Justice Friends. Though they did get an appearance in "Dexter's Wacky Races."

* {{Expy}}: Of ComicBook/TheMightyThor.
* ImprobableWeaponUser. His mighty guitar.

* {{Nerd}}: His true identity, which he reverts to when separated from his mighty axe for too long.
* ThePowerOfRock: He's the ''god'' of it!
* OnlySaneMan: Similar to Dee Dee, in that while Valhallen's obviously not that smart, he's definitely got way more common sense than either of his teammates.
* PunnyName: "Valhalla" and "VanHalen"
* ShoutOut: To Van Halen, and HeavyMetal (mainly HeavyMithril, what with his Viking motif) in general.
* TotallyRadical: Most of his dialogue.
* VagueAge: He looks to be around his [[KidHero late teens]] to early/mid 20's, yet most of the time he acts more mature than Krunk and at worst, Major Glory. Not to mention that he is a [[Really700YearsOld god]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Infraggable Krunk]]
->Voiced by: Frank Welker

* BerserkButton: As Major Glory and Valhallen learn the hard way, don't destroy the TV while he's watching "Puppet Pals".
* TheBigGuy: The muscle-man of the Justice Friends.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Disappeared after the show was UnCancelled, along with the other Justice Friends. Though they did get an appearance in "Dexter's Wacky Races."

* {{Expy}}: Comicbook/IncredibleHulk with reversed colours. Who coincidentally looks like [[http://filthyorphan.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/smash_cvr.jpg another famously blatant Hulk expy.]]
* GentleGiant: Despite being as big as the Hulk, Krunk is very friendly as long as he isn't mad.
* HulkSpeak: He's actually a parody of Hulk. Krunk speak!
* ManChild: Is a huge fan of the "TV Puppet Pals" show, to him it is SeriousBusiness.
* ThirdPersonPerson: He mainly speaks in third person.

[[folder: Dad]]
[[quoteright:212:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9878768_3313.JPG]]
->Voiced by: Creator/JeffBennett

* AbusiveParents: Downplayed, as he isn't horribly abusive, but as shown in several episodes, such as "Better off Wet," Dexter's dad can be a bully, embarrassing and pulling childish pranks on his family for his own enjoyment. These often include pushing his family in the pool, and very manipulative behavior.
* {{Amazingly Embarrassing Parent| s}}: Has a tendency to humiliate his kids on accident.
* BerserkButton: You can threaten him, you can break his car and he'll just brush it off. But don't ''ever'' not-hold a door open for a lady--ESPECIALLY his wife!
* BewareTheNiceOnes: ''Hoo boy'' - there's his ManipulativeBastard tendancies, for a start. Then there's the times he gets ''really'' mad...
* BumblingDad: Both parents are bumbling, though their primary flaw was being clueless to Dexter's Laboratory (and he has a memory erasing gun, so its more like they look stupid by comparison to their supergenius son.) Dexter's father turns out to be a stunt biker when his job is finally revealed (up to then, he left every day dressed for an office job), making him much cooler and more competent than the typical example.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: And when it happens, ''watch out.''
* DumbBlonde: Subverted - while he's clearly not as smart as Dexter, he possesses average intelligence, and has moments of genius.
* EyeGlasses: Like Dexter's glasses, they can change shape depending on expression.
* {{Flanderization}}: Became a SmallNameBigEgo in the later episodes
* GeniusDitz: He's generally pretty care free and goofy, but he can be surprisingly crafty and manipulative when he wants to, bordering on TheChessmaster. If mom's muffins are involved, ''watch out!''
* HappilyMarried: To Dexter's Mom.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While he tends to pull petty pranks on his family, he does care for them.
* JockDadNerdSon: He's the Jock Dad to Dexter's Nerd Son.
* ManChild: As seen above, he can be very childish and immature.
* ManipulativeBastard: He's this when he wants to be in "The Muffin King" and "Snowdown".
* NoNameGiven: His first name is unknown.
* PapaWolf: He'll go through all sorts of danger if his kids are in trouble.
* SanitySlippage: In "The Muffin King", he gets so upset over his children preventing him from eating one of Mom's muffins too early that he ends up having a fantasy about ruling over a land inhabited by sentient muffins.
* StandardFiftiesFather: He walks a fine line between this and the BumblingDad.
* TookALevelInBadass: Dexter's dad goes from average middle class guy and sports enthusiast to daredevil stuntman in one episode of the later seasons.
* TookALevelInDumbass: By the fourth season, he's become a complete nitwit. For instance, he doesn't know that he is being threatened legal action for stealing cable in "Bad Cable Manners" in spite of being repeatedly told so by the authorities that warn him and in "Tee Party" is shown to have no idea how golf works even though he was shown to be a fan of the sport in "Dad is Disturbed".
* UnnamedParent: He is only called ''Dad''.

* ActionMom: Demonstrated in "Mom and Jerry", "World's Greatest Mom" and "A Mom Cartoon".
* {{Amazingly Embarrassing Parent| s}}: Most notably in the episode "Chess Mom", where she embarrasses her son while trying to cheer him on at the chess tournament.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Her obsession with cleanliness goes beyond what is healthy.
* BerserkButton: As seen in "Dexter's Rude Removal", the most Mom ever got beyond angry was when the rude clones of Dexter and Deedee not only made a huge mess of her kitchen during a food fight but used profanity as well.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Whenever her BerserkButton is pushed, or her children are threatened.
* CuteBruiser: Dexter's mother has shown to be able to fight very well.
* FieryRedhead: The family is split evenly between this and the DumbBlonde stereotype; Dexter and his mother are fiery redheads, his sister and dad are happy-go-lucky yellow-haired ditzes.
* {{Flanderization}}: Her NeatFreak tendencies get played up considerably in the later episodes.
* GeniusDitz: Similarly to Dexter's dad. She shows frightening proficiency with technology when it comes to battling germs.
* GoodParents: Despite her faults, she's a genuinely loving Mom towards both Dexter and Dee Dee.
* HappilyMarried: To Dexter's Dad.
* HartmanHips: The page image. In fact, when Dee Dee gets turned into a duplicate of Mom in one episode, she feels her hips with awe.
* {{Housewife}}: She seemed to have little characterization outside of her housework, though it's been implied a few times that she was a lot more rebellious in her youth. Her typical outfit that she wore everywhere even included yellow rubber dishwashing gloves and an apron.
* IconicItem: Her yellow rubber gloves. So much so that she feels naked without them.
* MaleGaze: Cameras don't hesitate to get as many shots from the back as they can. "Better Off Wet" in particular features her in a bikini.
* MamaBear: Best shown in "Go, Dexter Family! Go!", where hearing her son cry for help motivates her into breaking free from her bonds and kicking the aliens' asses.
* MistakenForBadass: She once "defeated" the reigning snowball champion (Dexter's dad) by playfully chucking a snowball at him. He's been convinced ever since that she has evil snowball powers, which she passed on to Dee-Dee.
* NeatFreak: The episode "Pslyghtly Psycho" suggests that she is actually germophobic, particularly when her gloves and slippers are removed and she finds herself afraid to even set foot on the carpet barefoot.
* NoNameGiven: Her first name is unknown, although her maiden name is probably "O'Reilly," as seen in one episode that features her brother.
* RedheadInGreen: She wears a pale green blouse-shirt with a wide collar, white apron and dark green pants. Also her bikini is green.
* SkewedPriorities: She favors cleanliness over anything. One episode has her ignoring the fact Dexter had destroyed her entire house over the fact he was clean.
* UnnamedParent: She is only called ''Mom''.
