[[BedknobsAndBroomsticks Eglantine Price]]: A harmless British spinster who had heard rumors of the High Council's activities and wanted to help the war effort, she did research into magic and eventually wound up with enough power to protect the children she was guardian of on their journey. While not a powerful witch, she impressed the High Council enough with her determination that they granted her a little extra magic and brought her into their ranks as a part-time agent. She usually sticks to Britain, sometimes working with Film/MaryPoppins.

[[NationalTreasure Benjamin Franklin Gates]]: Pirates are notoriously unreliable, and sometimes the High Council needs a treasure-hunting agent that's a little less of a loose cannon. Benjamin Gates and his team have been responsible for finding some of the most legendary treasures in human history, and they do it all for the love of discovery and adventure, as opposed to financial gain (mostly, though they do get great fringe benefits). Gates is also a genius, the High Council's best code-cracker, and his team all have unique skills as well. They usually keep busy with their own adventures, but are more than willing to serve when the High Council has a high-priority artifact in their sights.

[[WesternAnimation/{{Recess}} Third Street School Students and Faculty]]: Though these children and adults mainly led a mundane life, if often taking a turn into SeriousBusiness, all that changed when the students and teacher managed to halt Dr. Benedict's plan to erase summer and plunge their Earth into a new ice age. The Council decided this would be where many children, be they royal, warriors or normal, would go to recieve an education of other Earths and learn to loosen up and have fun. TJ Detwiler and his group of friends take the lead outside the classroom, and are friends with many of the other children on the Council. Principla Peter Prickly handles the inside-the-classroom end, and serves as the Counil representative.

[[WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders Bahia Bay, CA]]: Also an Oasis, and completely free of the Friends' influence- they dismissed it as "unimportant"- not many evil souls there, if any at all. Consequently, it serves as a popular vacation spot for many on the Council. Their representatives are four middle schoolers- Tino, Tish, Carver and Lor- who essentially act as tour guides.

[[Film/InspectorGadget Inspector John Brown]]: Much like how the Friends briefly attempted to tap into other multiverses and potentially corrupt them, the High Council did the same, thus providing John Brown with the technology needed in his world to save his life and turn him into a hero. However, after at least one other counter attack against the Friend's agent, Dr. Claw, his universe drifted out of contact.

[[Film/{{Underdog}} Shoeshine/Underdog]]: Again, much like Brown- Friends found another multiverse to invade, High Council picked an agent to stop their plans. Once Bar Sinister was defeated, his version of Earth also lost contact.

* Fethry Duck, a fairly recent addition to TNT, is a somewhat special case in that he for the longest of time ''wanted'' to help the Council out and made several attempts at getting them to recruit him (often pulling off the most foolhardy stunts or wildest {{Zany Scheme}}s in the hope of impressing them, even creating a superhero identity for himself in the form of the "Red Bat"), but thanks to his [[TheLoad general incompetence]] and [[StopHelpingMe tendency to screw things up for anyone he tried to "help"]] the Council were reluctant to employ him. It certainly didn't help his case that his cousin Donald would constantly argue against the recruitment of Fethry, summing him up as a NiceGuy but a walking disaster. His [[{{Determinator}} persistence]] eventually convinced the Council to give him a chance, though, and so he was recruited as a TNT agent. To the surprise of all (especially Donald), TNT turned out to be exactly right for Fethry; an organization where his unorthodox ideas and non-standard solutions to problems could thrive and even be put to good use. His go-to partner for missions and assignments is Donald, though if he continues to improve the way he has, he might at some point be entrusted with solo missions.

[[TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody The Tipton Hotel]]: An Oasis location and a place to stay in the Live Action world. The resulting chaotic magic that comes from this influx of enchanted visitors explains some of the crazier shenanigans that go on there.

[[Disney/{{Zootopia}} The Zootopia Police Department]]: In the heart of a city meant to represent the harmony the high council means to create, there lies its police department. Lead by Chief Bogo, the ZPD is technically an arm of the council to catch any fowl beings seeking to create disharmony in the city. Bogo himself isn't officially sanctioned by the council, mostly because some of the leaders complain that, "Just because the job's hard doesn't mean you have to be so terse." Clawhauser on the other hand is the council's recruiter for the department. As the man at the front, he can keep an eye out for honest cops who might be able to take special assignments in the future for the council. His friendly demeanor certainly made him an ideal cat to do it too.

[[Disney/{{Zootopia}} Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde]]

[[PhilOfTheFuture The Diffy Family]]: This stranded clan of time travelers has access to some powerful futuristic technology, and while none of them are warriors, the High Council still made contact with them so that their science team could learn from their tech, replicate it, and use it in their battles (despite some concerns about creating technology paradoxes). The family currently serves as occasional tech advisors.

[[ErnestScaredStupid Ernest P. Worrell]]: Sometimes heroes come in the least likely of people, and surely nobody seemed less likely than Ernest P. Worrell. The Council had noticed when he had saved a summer camp from closing, keeping children from falling into despair. Then there was the time he busted Santa out of a wrongful imprisonment. But, it was when Ernest saved his town from the evil troll Trantor that the High Council came knocking. As a part-time spy for the Council, Ernest uses his many disguises to see what the villains are up to, but his greatest disguise is his own self. After all, who would suspect the rubberfaced buffoon of being any sort of threat, [[CatchPhrase knowwhutimean]]?

[[PushingDaisies Ned The Piemaker, Charlotte "Chuck" Charles, Emerson Cod, and Olive Snook]] Although normally only working in Peyton Coutny and the neighboring town Coers d'Coers, these investigators gained the attention of the High Council due to word reaching Zeus about their exploits. Edward "Ned" Edwards can ressurect the dead for a minute and, after making a buisness arrangement with Emerson Cod, uses this power to interrogate murder victims, and thus some of the friend's victims as well. Although he is a pacifist, and doesn't believe in magic himself, he joined the cause after the Council showed him the abject evil of the Friends. Chuck, Ned's girlfriend is also an invaluable asset since Ned ressurected her. It has been discovered that anyone Ned ressurrect has the ability to withstand injuries that no living person can. Although hesitant at first, the council has also hired Emerson (paying him his standard fee) and Olive as a method for gathering information. Together, these four act as agents who investigate the aftermath of attacks by the Friends. Perhaps some sort of pattern can be divined from seemingly random attacks.

[[RaceToWitchMountain Seth and Sara]]: These two pacifist alien teenagers were key in preventing an alien invasion of Earth. While their planet may be militaristic and ruthless, they and their parents are noble dissenters who have been working with the High Council to preserve the peace between the worlds. When they get older, it's likely that these two will wind up being intergalactic ambassadors.

[[RaceToWitchMountain Jack Bruno and Dr. Alex Friedman]]: These two humans got involved in Seth and Sara's plan to save their world, and wound up getting the attention of the High Council. Alex joined the High Council's science team, and has been a strong asset (despite many of the other scientists [[DistractedByTheSexy being distracted by her]]. Jack, meanwhile, BadassNormal that he is, has become the High Council's courier/transporter. When you need something delivered safely, no matter what the Friends throw at it, he's your guy.

[[Disney/{{Fantasia}} God]] ''(existence unconfirmed)'': apparently, the BigGood of the Disney Multiverse and the omnipotent incarnation of kindness. No one can tell if he ''really'' exists, but he is venerated by mortals in many worlds, notably by the Monks of ''Fantasia'' and the parisian society of ''The Hunchback of Notre-Dame''. He is known as "Allah" in the world of ''Aladdin''.
