* DesignatedHero: Dr. Ed Wainwright, Creator/PeterGraves' character. He CREATES the monsters, but never, at any point, apologizes for it. He acknowledges it, but treats it as if he simply forgot to feed the dog. Yeah, he does spend the remainder of the film trying to stop what he created, but it's too late. Lampshaded in the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' episode.
