-> '''Avatar''': ''We have an almost infinite, possibly immortal legion of the Metaverse's most brilliant and powerful beings against us. They have unlimited resources, [[VillainWithGoodPublicity far reaching political connections]] {{a|rsonMurderAndJaywalking}}nd [[EvilIsCool cool costumes]].''

The Dark Council meet in the Citadel of Evil, conveniently situated on the Mountain of Terror, between the Forest of Nightmares and the Sea of Blood. On the outside the citadel is but a small, charmingly European castle, but on the inside the citadel is a labyrinthine edifice, built to a scale that matches its overlord's egos. The corridors are wide enough that the warlord of Z'lt'n can fly his flagship, the Doomstar, down them without scraping the sides ([[DrivesLikeCrazy although he frequently does as he's a terrible driver]]) and even the weakest [[EvilOverlord evil overlord]] has a personal throne room slightly larger than UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}, decorated to suit their personality.

When not plotting against the Vampire Benders, or backstabbing each other, the Dark Council like to watch wrestling matches between their [[TheDragon evil lieutenants]] in the Mudpit of Doom. The fight between the [[HighlyVisibleNinja ninja nymphettes]] of Mistress Malicia and the [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Dread Queen's]] [[AmazonBrigade leatherclad squad of]] [[DarkMagicalGirl dark magical cheerleaders]] is a particular fan favourite.

The Dark Council consists of [[NumberOfTheBeast 666]] {{Evil Overlord}}s, including:

* Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, a rather stereotypical disgruntled ex-Vietnam-turned-mercenary-guy who swears revenge against destiny because he was the first guy to be drafted.
* Achwskgdsidsfh, [[EldritchAbomination an ichor-spewing horror]] from beyond the stars, with green tentacles. His name has been pronounced "Agwasgidsidfah", "Atchwhiskgadsidsef", "Acidwhitesquelch", "Aardwitchsasquach", "Archsquid Sanfilch", "Ach, what sie grrrblmrrrrrh!", "A-chow-sock-god-said's-filth", [[ShoutOut "Four Yaks And A Dog"]], and "Aggie". ''Appears in AATAFOVS/TheDarkGates.''
* Admiral Black, the [[{{Pirates}} pirate queen]]. Controls most of the pirate ships in the Caribbean. Her flagship, the Blood Pearl, is said to be crewed by ghosts, but it's actually crewed by {{ninja pirate|ZombieRobot}}s. ''Appears in AATAFOVS/APiratesLifeForMe, AATAFOVS/StockFootage, and AATAFOVS/CitadelOfEvil''.
* Alexandria the Great, [[AlphaBitch merciless high school girl]] and [[IceQueen cold-hearted ruler]] of a savage clique. She will not sleep until she's given the world a makeover in her own twisted-yet-trendy image.''Appears in AATAFOVS/{{Schooled}}, AATAFOVS/FridayLiteBrites''.
* Alucardiff, a mysterious Welsh vampire. Lusts after the Witch-Queen of Elanor. ''Appears in AATAFOVS/RingRats, {{AATAFOVS/TimeToVampBend}}, AATAFOVS/StockFootage'', and the ''AATAFOVS/RevengeOfXanatos'' novels.
* The Anti Pope, the leader of a cult who worship an [[CrystalDragonJesus ancient god]]. Commands small crack army of OneHundredAndEight soldiers. May have a secret identity as a heavy-metal singer; the jury's still out.
* Asmodeus, The Great Beast that is Dragon, Supreme Commander of the Infernal Legions, He whose name is Death. To offset this, his infernal armour is bright pink, and his unholy curses against humanity are punctuated with exclamations of 'OMG!'.
* Avatar Leeroy, an alternate reality robotic clone of [=McPotter=] with the exact same powers but a much [[EvilIsCool cooler]] [[EvilCostumeSwitch costume]].
* [[ShoutOut Baron]] {{K|ingKong}}ong, a gorilla. Because, as [[MonsterClown The Giggler]] says, "[[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys everything's better with monkeys]]". Calling Kong a monkey tends to earn his ire, as he insists that he is "the gretest of the great apes". But he apologized and even signed the Giggler's cast while he was in the hospital, so they're cool now. Kong's a surprisingly sharp dresser, with elegant blue robes, a monocle, and black gloves on both his hands and feet. He carries a scepter tipped with a golden banana.
** [[ShoutOut Gorilla]] [[AttilaTheHun the Hun]], the so-called 667th councilmember, a brilliant liutenant of Baron Kong's who can often be seen filling an empty seat at meetings. His name and armor come from an early concept for Baron Kong that was shown in the press releases, and made it into comics and novels early on, taking Kong's place, then being present alongside him, before he was quietly [[RetCon retconned]] to be Kong's [[TheDragon right-hand ape]]. His devious scheming and caustic humor earned him a [[EnsembleDarkhorse certain fondness amongst fans]], leading to [[CanonImmigrant his introduction on the show itself]].
* Barthuliog, a pale, stick-thin, raven-haired man with little to no power who mostly keeps to himself in the back. Despite never saying anything or appearing as a villain ''anywhere'', [[EnsembleDarkhorse he's the most popular villain on the show]], and [[DracoInLeatherPants heavily features in fanfiction]].
* Bastegar, who has never been seen nor heard by his fellow council members and whose name is spoken only in whispers. He communicates mainly by post, and the envelopes are generally made from human flesh... Don't ask about the stamps. The text of his missives shows a grudging respect for Joe.
* Beezelbob, quite literally the [[{{Salaryman}} Salaryman from Hell]]. Summoned accidently in an attempt to summon {{Cthulhu}}, but was kept along because he's the only one who understands the villainous payroll system.
* Bent, a raven-haired pretty-boy who can warp the fabric of reality by focusing his will and putting enough effort into it, and who [[VillainousCrossdresser runs around in a cast-iron bikini]].
* Black Crow, a vicious, [[StrawNihilist nihilistic]], misanthropic cult leader and self-styled "Chaos Prophet" who may or may not have mind control powers. Seeks to {{kill all human|s}}ity to satisfy his {{angst}}, [[DisproportionateRetribution which stems largely from Solo having stolen his girlfriend at summer camp when they were young]].
* Black Rage, an African crime lord who trades in ImportedAlienPhlebotinum. UnfortunateImplications keep him from seeing much use as a direct villain, though he is very vocal at council meetings. ''Appears in [[AATAFOVS/{{Schooled}} Schooled]], AATAFOVS/FridayLiteBrites.''
* Lord Bl?w, 735th Archduke of The Unblinking Eye, [[TheChessmaster leads]] the [[AncientConspiracy vampire archdukes]] of the House of The 1000 Year Night in their EvilPlan [[TheNightThatNeverEnds to put the sun out]]. In case you're wondering, his own survival ''after'' that point ''is'' included in that plan. ''Appears in AATAFOVS/TheDaysOfKnight, AATAFOVS/BirthOfADarkStar, and is a principle character in the spin off novel series AATAFOVS/RevengeOfXanatos.''
* Bogan the Barbarian, a cunning warrior who consistently wears uggboots. He schemes to steal the Diamond of Gortholis, and often mentions this. Nobody pays any attention, because he's quite mad.
* Buckwheat, a [[CorruptHick nasty hillbilly]] with psychic powers and a huge army of pigs. He is a rival of [=HaMalach=], so [[WeAreStrugglingTogether naturally]] they always get [[ThoseTwoGuys paired up]] on recon missions.
* Carlton Ritz, a [[TheCracker deadly and insidious computer genius]] who can [[EverythingIsOnline rig an antique cuckoo clock in a rival's home to explode with a few swift keystrokes]].
* Chicken Beaux, a giant chicken in Darth Vader-style armor and cape. Oddly enough, nobody notices that he's not human, except Solo, who insists that [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} "He's a chicken, I tell you, a giant chicken!"]] [[CassandraTruth The other characters just put this up to delirium tremens]]. Appears in the despised novel, AATAFOVS/AHorseDivided.
* '''[[FaceHeelTurn Cleo]]'''. Formerly one of the Vamp Benders, she split [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim after personally killing a powerful member of the Dark Council]] and gaining massive psychic abilities. Joe quickly used her hatred of the Benders to bring her to his side. ''First mentioned as a Dark Council Member in AATAFOVS/BlowsThatHurtMost.''
* Clive. He's not really evil, but his wife left him and since he retired it helps him get out of the house.
* Count Sinister Von Doomsday. He (claims) to have formed the original Dark Council and sown terror and destruction across the entire world. The mere mention of his name caused the mightiest heroes to wet their tights. His diabolical visage brought kings to their knees. Whole armies have surrendered when simply confronted with his presence. Unfortunately, that was eighty years ago. Now he's been [[TheArtifact all-but forgotten]], and mostly just hobbles around the Citadel of Evil, occasionally whacking the other council members with his cane and muttering about the good old days when villains were TRULY evil.
* The Countess Sirena. Has [[AmazonBrigade 1001 Amazon assassins]]. Rides in a [[BloodBath bath of blood]], carried by well-oiled body builders.
* Dead World's Hand, five cards that, put together, allow an unspeakable evil to peer into this world and speak to whoever is holding the cards. When the full deck is completed, [[SealedEvilInACan this evil will be free again]]. Fortunately, most of these cards have been out of print for nearly fifteen years.
* Docktor D? A cybernetic MadScientist sourcerer who wears a green cape and a mask made of titanium. [[CaptainErsatz Not to be confused with]] Creator/MarvelComics' SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom.
* Doctor Jorgenheimer, MadScientist. To be fair, if you were named [[UnfortunateName Jorgenheimer]], you'd be pretty ticked off too. His methods are far more scientific than most mad scientists would go for, but this only makes him more dangerous; After all, it means he tests his weapons until he's sure they're right, and administers his PsychoSerum in varying amounts to groups so he always has the subjects he gave a placebo to fall back on.
* Doctor Myro, a [[MadScientist crazed geneticist]] whom Avatar defeated at some point in his youth, yet [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim refused to kill on the grounds that he would be no different than Myro if he did so]]. Doctor Myro has since sworn vengeance upon Avatar and begun work on a [[OmnicidalManiac super clone]] created from the DNA of the metaverses' strongest fighters for the purpose of exacting ultimate {{revenge}} upon his {{archnemesis}}. On his [[VillainsOutShopping off time]], he enjoys golfing. ''Appears in AATAFOVS/OmenFromTheFutureArc.''
* Lord Doomster [=MacDoomington=], an evil warlord who hails from [[ViolentGlaswegian Glasgow]]. Usually dresses in a kilt, carries a weapon known as the Shillelagh of Doom, and is Pepinson's main competition for the AATAFOVS/CanOfDoomyDoomness. He's also got a VerbalTic, and ends all his sentences with "{{Doom|yDoomsOfDoom}}".
* Dorkros Mullerkaiserfuchslang-Schroderschulzbeckerbauer has enlisted the aid of Germlons from an alternate dimension. [[spoiler:Is actually [[LukeIAmYourFather Nerdly's father]]]]. ''Appears in AATAFOVS/ANerdInTheBand and AATAFOVS/ThroughAGlassNerdly.''
* [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Dread Queen Deirdre]], former ruler of {{Atlantis}} - or was it Mu, or Lemuria? - she seems rather unsure. [[SealedEvilInACan Trapped]] in [[PhantomZonePicture a painting]], she has recruited a legion of [[DarkMagicalGirl dark magical cheerleaders]] to search for a way to free her. Frequently partnered with [[AlphaBitch Alexandria the Great]].
* Evils Presley, TheEmperor of RockAndRoll. [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed Don't step on his]] [[BerserkButton blue suede jackboots]].
* The 2007 Ford Edsel, the automotive industry's answer to the Necronomicon.
* The Giggler, [[MonsterClown evil clown]] and ringmaster of the [[CircusOfFear Carnival of Dread]]. ''Appears in AATAFOVS/CircusOfFear''.
* Al Gore, really a Cro-Magnon leading a conspiracy to use efforts to fight global warming to bring about the next [[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLife ice age]], ''featured in the SpinOff {{series}} AATAFOVS/RevengeOfXanatos''.
* [=HaMalach=], a [[WhiteHairBlackHeart white-haired]] {{bishonen}} with a [[OneWingedAngel single burning wing]]. Talks entirely in {{reference|Overdosed}}s to {{Kabbalah}} and Literature/TheBible, [[FauxSymbolism none of which have any relevance to the situation at hand]]. As previously alluded to, he doesn't get along with Buckwheat, [[WeAreStrugglingTogether meaning they are constantly forced to team up]].
* Igneon, the magma elemental, and his Obsidian Guard, whom he personally shaped from volcanic glass over the course of a millennium in order to impress a beautiful woman who, by the time he finished, had long since died of old age. He predictably [[FreakOut freaked the eff out]].
* Inspector Tennenbaum, a [[GreatDetective world class detective]] for INTERPOL that is the single greatest deductive mind who ever lived. He was captured when he was two thirds of the way done cataloging the Dark Council and [[ManchurianAgent brainwashed to secretly work for them]] (his code phrase is "screw verifiability"). In spite of his [[HyperAwareness high situational awareness]], he has many safeguards in place to prevent him from figuring out who he's working for. His weakness is that [[DefectiveDetective anything which reminds him of his dead wife]] (who looks similar to Sue) causes him to [[EpilepticTrees believe everything that crosses his mind]] and play the role of JudgeJuryAndExecutioner until he gets knocked out. At meetings, he believes that he's just at the "INTERPOL Secret Task Force".
* Jimmy, the evil stockboy. He knows where all the nastiest little secrets of the headquarters are kept. Depite being a grade-a skulker, he [[AffablyEvil maintains a friendly, helpful, and positive attitude]] towards his fellow villains, and even to any heroes who happen to mistakenly wander into his store. It's his job, after all. Shame it's also his job to kill unwanted guests with a variety of retail-themed weapons, and, failing that, a box cutter. Actually, that part's not unfortunate at all. He loves that part. All that [[FauxAffablyEvil pretending to be nice]] [[StepfordSmiler gets to him after a while]].
* Joe... just Joe. ''Never appears, being judged far too terrifying for viewers, but mentioned in AATAFOVS/CitadelOfEvil, AATAFOVS/MojaveBlues, AATAFOVS/BlowsThatHurtMost, AATAFOVS/CircusOfFear, and in the detested novel, AATAFOVS/AHorseDivided''. His is the countenance of oblivion. [[TheDreaded Almost universally feared, even by members of other organizations such as TVTW]].
* Juliet Reed, Crosser of T's, Dotter of I's, ObstructiveBureaucrat, Executive Assistant, Receptionist, Stenographer, Certified Notary of [[DealWithTheDevil Diabolical Contracts]], and aspiring Assistant to the Director of ShapeShifting Resources. A demure [[ChristmasCake 25-year-old]] OfficeLady with a tendency to manipulate 'pink slip' termination papers into the form of a deadly [[PaperMaster origami weapon]]. Woe to the adventurer who enters her elaborate glass-ceilinged waiting lounge without an appointment. Appropriately, [[VoluntaryShapeshifting capable of assuming a variety]] of [[CuteMonsterGirl deadly yet alluring forms.]]
* J. Buffalo, [[CaptainErsatz southeast-Asian crimelord]] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything involved in the organization of]] [[StreetFighter corrupt martial arts tournaments as a means of world domination]]. Is sometimes known as [[SdrawkcabName Agev]] when he goes to Japan. {{Edit War}}s have erupted as to how to alphabetize his name. He killed [[AATAFOVS/{{Sue}} Sue's]] father but doesn't remember him performing said murder because while it was the most important day of Sue's life for Buffalo "[[ButForMeItWasTuesday it was Monday]]". Allegedly, [[SelfMadeOrphan he also killed his father]], if he did then he certainly doesn't whine about it. He also found the beating that his genetic experiments gave to the Vampire Benders incredibly delicious, to the point that he said "[[BigYes YESH]]" not once but twice.
* Kurosawa Shin, a [[NobleDemon strangely honorable villain]] with {{samurai}} pretensions. Has a mystical black [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana capable of cutting through objects on a conceptual level]]. Was originally a sympathetic character with a genuine grievance against the protagonists, but by his third appearance he seems to have [[MotiveDecay forgotten]] his opposition to the enslavement of all humanity.
* Thag [=McLarg=], an Irish Cro-Magnon on the upper echelons of The Brotherhood of the Cold Sun. Seems to answer to Lord Bl?w. His favored weapon is a Welsh bull-pup assault musket that fires rocket propelled microgrenades. ''Appears in AATAFOVS/TheDaysOfKnight and AATAFOVS/BirthOfADarkStar plus is featured in the SpinOff series AATAFOVS/RevengeOfXanatos.''
* Louis Frank-Field Weiner, an atypical [[TheChessmaster genius manipulator]] since he [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything never seems to do anything]], yet everything always seem to happen exactly the way he (appears to) want them to. Some fans thing he's actually just a [[TheCassandra forseer of bad events]], who happens to be evil and in a plot with [[GambitPileup too many plans by too many different people]]. First appeared in the depised novel, AATAFOVS/AHorseDivided A Horse Divided.
* Mistress Malicia, ruler of an [[AmazonBrigade all-female band]] of HighlyVisibleNinja. Dresses entirely in {{w|omanInWhite}}hite, decorated with lots of shiny silver skulls, and {{spikes|OfVillainy}}. Specialises in killing people with [[ImprobableWeaponUser feathers]]. Has an intense rivalry with [[{{Pirate}} Admiral Black]].
* {{Mary|Sue}, AATAFOVS/{{Sue}}'s EvilTwin. Exactly like the orginial, [[CommonMarySueTraits except with color changing eyes and]] MindControl [[CommonMarySueTraits powers]]. Created by Docktor D?in the VillanEpisode OVA, and immediately used her MindControl [[TheStarscream to take over the orginization]] [[BlackHoleSue and derail the plot]]. Thankfully, she was stopped by the combined efforts of Naked Boss, [[spoiler:Spoiler-Man]], and Inspector Tennenbaum. {{Mary|Sue}} later appared in another OVA, [[PossessionSue this time as a ghost jumping between bodies to feed on people's attenton spans]].
* Naked Boss, a soldierly/warlord type capable of breaking a tank into its component spare parts before it shoots him, who spends most of his time giving pseudo-philosophical lectures on war and what it means to be a soldier. Often rides around in the supposedly fearsome [[HumongousMecha Plastic Gear]], a war machine supposedly designed to revolutionize warfare but with a bad track record of being defeated. Frequently works alongside Renita. ''Appears in the [[AATAFOVS/OmenFromTheFutureArc Omen From The Future Comic Arc]].''
* Necro Blast Vladimus, a test shot action figure who gained life and now attempts, with the aid of his Toy Soldiers, to emulate the glorious force of darkness in whose image he was cast. [[RedEyesTakeWarning His eyes glow red even without batteries]], and his spring-loaded Necro Blasts can puncture steel. Unsafe for children of any age, but highly prized by collectors until being declared off-limits after incinerating the better part of twelve different conventions. ''Appears in AATAFOVS/DownTheSeriesOfTubes.''
* Necropedia, the [[GeniusLoci living dead library]] filled with knowledge man was not meant to know packed into the gibbering, skittering, horribly mutated books that dwell inside him.
* Nucleus, a [[OmnicidalManiac super clone]] from a [[{{Dystopia}} bleak future]], created by [[MadScientist Doctor Myro]] from the DNA of the metaverses' strongest fighters, such as [[MemeticMutation Chuck Norris, Mr. T and Vin Diesel]]. He has [[TimeTravel traveled back in time]] to test his skills against the Vampbenders of today. He [[MrT pities the fool]] who tries to oppose him and his [[MemeticMutation roundhouse kick]]. ''Appears in the [[AATAFOVS/OmenFromTheFutureArc Omen From The Future Comic Arc]]'', where he was revealed to be [[spoiler:a SplitPersonality of Future AATAFOVS/Nerdly created through {{Nanomachines}}, [[DrugsAreBad marijuana]] and holographic imagery]], and in the episodes ''AATAFOVS/BackInBlack, AATAFOVS/{{Seduction}}, AATAFOVS/NucleusRises,'' and ''AATAFOVS/{{Revelations}}''.
* Oelc, Cleo's EvilTwin. Rides on a throne of skulls, carried by a dozen hideous [[AllTrollsAreDifferent trolls]]. [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY Her name is pronounced "Whelk"]]. ''Appeared in AATAFOVS/CircusOfFear''
* Pervertigo, the [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever fifty-foot]] lapdancer.
* The Pinsher, a bloodthirsy [[WolfMan were-doberman]] who runs with a savage pack of genetically-engineered strays designed to be the perfect killing machines.
* Prince Barabados, European prince who happens to look exactly like AATAFOVS/Solo, but with a [[GoodScarsEvilScars scar across his eye and lip]]; [[BerserkButton Do ''not'' mention it in his presence.]] He pilots a 50-foot-tall [[SteamPunk steam-powered]] [[HumongousMecha humanoid robot]] that [[TransformingMecha transforms into a giant ocelot]].
* Professor Van Doom, [[MadScientist insane genius]]. His personality, means, and even appearance [[DependingOnTheWriter vary wildly from depiction to depiction]]. {{Lust}}s after the Countess Fifi Sirena. Appears in the hated novel, AATAFOVS/AHorseDivided.
* [[TeamPet Pup the Pup]], a canine sock puppet whose presumably off-screen puppeteer may not, in fact, exist. Seen videoconferencing with sinister TheMenInBlack, but was frustrated by inordinate amounts of lag. Bears an ominous clock hanging around his neck, counting down to some terrible event. He insists he's a terrible driver. Denies all allegations of having a cigar-chomping [[UpToEleven Even More]] EvilTwin.
* [[AnIcePerson Queen Permafrost]], a powerful sorceress who [[SoulJar sealed her soul in the heart of a glacier to achieve power and immortality]]. [[VainSorceress Preserves her youth and beauty]] by a ritual that seals sacrificial victims inside a giant ice altar and drains their lifeforce slowly; draining too much at a time would cause her to regress in age. Has something of a schoolgirl crush on Avatar, [[DefrostingIceQueen whom she can't help but act just slightly less evil around]].
* Russ Vincent, sleazy wrestling promoter who talks with a thick Brooklyn accent. Uses his wrestlers as his own personal goon squad. Has a thing for lesbians and "-On-A-Pole" matches. Secretly head of an ancient conspiracy.
* Samantha [=McQueen=], a [[EnfanteTerrible six-year-old terror]] who [[LittleMissBadass fired her first grenade launcher before she could walk.]] She wears a blood-red tutu with a matching tiara and insists on being called "Princess". Shade tends to fall asleep in her lap.
* Signeur FrancÚs, a meta-traveling demon.
* Shade, [[RightHandCat the cute little black kitten]]. He can't actually be bothered to do anything evil, though. And he scratches up all the Dark Council's furniture. But he's so '''''cute!''''' He seems to have unearthly powers, including teleportation and the ability to be in two places at once, but it was played off as possibly just mischief and trickery... until he had to face off against the Vamp Benders and revealed his ability to transform into a gigantic, sabre-toothed panther with glowing green eyes. He tends to use that ability sparingly, though, as it doesn't generally earn him many tummy rubs.
* The Shadow, mysterious '''''female''''' representative of Joe who held the Benders prisoner and tried to convince them to join the Dark Council. Killed by {{AATAFOVS/Cleo}} in ''AATAFOVS/BlowsThatHurtMost'', just prior to Cleo's FaceHeelTurn. ''Appears in AATAFOVS/FarFromTheNest, AATAFOVS/BattlesOfTheMind, and AATAFOVS/BlowsThatHurtMost.''
* [[spoiler:Spoiler-Man]], A mysterious figure who feeds off the screams of torment from people when he [[spoiler:tells them the endings to movies and TV shows they haven't seen yet, such as that everyone explodes into Tang in Evangelion, Darth Vader is really Luke's father, Dante was the BigBad of ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'', and SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!!!]]
* The Stamps, retropop sensations and masters of both [[SubliminalSeduction subliminal mind control]] and [[MusicalAssassin acoustic weaponry]]. They have a casual, devil-may-care attitude about them, especially their lead singer Express, which tends to rub more serious-minded councilmembers the wrong way. Express is backed by [[ThemeNaming First Class on guitar, Overnight on keyboard, and Bulk on a massive set of drums]]. ''Appear in the episode AATAFOVS/KeepItSimpleStupid.''
* Schlorph, the God of Slimes and Jellies. It's been suggested that he goes well with peanut butter.
* Sir Ninjos Del Piratico, a ninja pirate of the highest order and a loyal general [[spoiler:supposedly]] to Admiral Black. ''Appears in AATAFOVS/LondonFalling.''
* Sturgis Kahn, a distant descendant of Genghis Kahn. He leads a gigantic biker gang known as The Horde.
* The Supreme Holy Grand High Inquisitor, head of the Black Knights of St Fylfot. When he says he [[KnightTemplar knows what's best]], you should probably agree with him for the moment.
* Tony Volta, [[DiscoDan a 70's afficionado]] [[OutdatedOutfit with a leisure suit]] who is obsessed with making disco popular again. He leads a gang of dancers called the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Jive Aces]], who were [[HumanPopsicle frozen by Doctor Jorgenheimer]] just a few weeks after ''Film/SaturdayNightFever'' was released. He speaks entirely in [[TotallyRadical outdated slang]], [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp and his worldview is not entirely up to date]].
* The Warlord of Z'lt'n, an alien mastermind. Lusts after goats.
* The Witch-Queen of Elanor. Rules a MagicalLand where it is always spring, but never Easter. Turns people into stone frogs. Has a army of flying gorillas.
* Xenotrix, [[ShapeShifting shapechanging]] robot from the future. Has an army of ninja velociraptors. Rides a [[MakeMeWannaShout voice is their weapon]].
* Xyzzy, the dark priest of [[SealedEvilInACan Zomelgustar]]. After 3 episodes worth a buildup during seson 2, in combat he lasts all of five minutes [[DroppedABridgeOnHim before before being crushed by a meteor]].
* Zygmabeest, [[MixAndMatchCritters part part-zebra-part-centaur, part part-wildebeest-part-minotaur]].

Another, far more mysterious group, known only as TVTW, has occasionally made appearances. While several - most notably Seth - have appeared among the ranks of the Dark Council, it seems that their loyalty to their mysterious organization supersedes their ties to the Council. Indeed, it is heavily implied that TVTW are tied to the creation of the Story Gate, the formation of Dark Council, and even may be guiding the efforts of [=McPotter=] and the Vampire Benders to their own ends...

Their machinations are backed by the manpower of the Unknown Troopers, an [[FiveTokenBand unnaturaly diverse]] team of sleeper agents; anyone, anywhere, at any time, could be an Unknown Trooper without even being aware of it! (Hence the name.)

[[WildMassGuessing Wild fan speculation]] holds that the TVTW are the representations of the metaverses gods, and have power over the entire universe. The diverse number of members is cited as the reason [[CanonDisContinuity continuity is totally disregarded]] between episodes. A less wild theory is that they are just author avatars, but that's not as fun.

[[ADarkerMe Presumed members of TVTW]] include...
* The being [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep known only as]] 110; it's rumored that its true name is [[TheUnpronounceable unpronounceable, or at least very hard to spell]], in the tongues of Man. It's rumored that the (fairly [[HumanAliens human-looking]]) form we see is a mindless clone body, and that the true 110 is a digital entity. He has not shown up in the second season yet, because [[spoiler:he hasn't finished watching the first one]].
* A man known only as The Bad Wolf, not so much a MadScientist as a Clinically Insane Social Scientist. As a psychologist attempting to unify psychology with math but got stuck on the infamous JustForFun/QuantumMariahCareyProblem which eventually destroyed his mind, and his ability to spell. So far an [[TheGhost unseen character]] but it is speculated that Lord Bl?w may report to him.
* Leliel, the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Seraph of Dusk]]. [[WasOnceAMan Originally a human]] [[{{Magitek}} Technomage]] with a loving family and happy life...Until a [[AnimalWrongsGroup fanatical group of eco-terroists]], decided that [[ScienceIsBad his magic was an abomination]] and destroyed his home. [[DespairEventHorizon Grief striken to the brink of madness]], Leliel decided that the [[HumansAreBastards the primitivistic human instinct]] was to blame, and he decided to [[EvilutionaryBiologist forcefully evolve humanity to a point where they would no longer have them]], and so [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans create a peaceful civilization of scientists]]. [[ProfessorGuineaPig After sucessfully transfoming himself]] through merging with a [[Creator/HPLovecraft Byakee]], he is now the primary expert on ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow and HumongousMecha for TVTW. [[AntiVillain Has no illusions that what he does is right]], but does it anyway since [[NecessarilyEvil he believes it must be done]]. Also a bit of an {{Otaku}} and rather GenreSavvy. Pilots the Mictlan, a [[SuperRobot semi-living]] mecha that resembles a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent winged serpent from Aztec Myth]]. He also is a bit of a [[FurryFandom transfomational art fan]], which makes since, as he ''is'' an EvilutionaryBiologist. Favorite tatic is the MindGameShip.
* Pepinson, a bespectacled GeniusBruiser with a buzz cut, a railgun ([[ICallItVera "Shelly"]]), and a habit of ranting about his (apparently) insane worldview, especially in combat. Notable - and possibly meaningful - ravings include the "boxes and lines" monologue, delivered as he stalks Avatar through an abandoned warehouse ("You languish behind self-imposed boundaries, just as you cower in that cardboard death trap! Neither will shelter you from the light of truth!"), and the even more unhinged "replacement hero" sequence in the third-season finale AATAFOVS/TheJonasQuandary, the details of which are too sensitive even for spoiler tags. Scrounge considers him a rambling idiot but works with him in the hopes of being able to claim Shelly when Pepinson finally bites it.
* The enigmatic figure known only as Pieguy Two Five Nine, whose greatest strength lies in his power to [[{{Deconstruction}} destroy entire worlds]] by [[ItJustBugsMe pulling apart their laws of physics]]. Fortunately, his powers are [[SealedEvilInACan locked away in a tin can somewhere]].
* Renita, a [[EldritchAbomination Lovecraftian monstrosity]] intent on the [[OmnicidalManiac destruction of all of time and space]] after a [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds personal tragedy that left her unable to go on living]]. Previously an AffablyEvil DoubleAgent and decorated [[TheStrategist Strategist]], albeit a {{ni|etzscheWannabe}}hilistic WellIntentionedExtremist who believed that UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans, Renita [[AGodAmI ascended to her current godlike state]] after her method of attempted suicide imbued her with the power to [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum bring down all of reality with her]], sending her over the MoralEventHorizon in the process. Any of the warmth that Renita possessed as a mere mortal has since been extinguished, leaving only a cold and callous creature whose sole pleasure in life is seeing reality burn around her as creation itself faces extinction. The fanbase speculates that Renita's FreakOut is a result of CreatorBreakdown.
* Roland, a mysterious individual wearing a black coat and hood. He [[NobleDemon seemed to be evil]], but more than once refrained from destroying the Benders. Fought with a [[ImprovisedWeapon zweihander made from scrap iron, cast-off scraps of leather, and broken glass.]] In his final confirmed appearance to date, he [[spoiler: allied with the Benders for his own reasons and [[YouShallNotPass apparently sacrificed himself to save them.]] He is presumed dead, but [[TheEndOrIsIt a shadowy figure picked up his broken sword after the episode credits...]]]] Rivals with Scrounge over fashion.
** Some fans seem to ship Roland/Renita. Roland has commented on this in a [[NoFourthWall whine directly addressed at the viewers]], moments before Renita dragged him off enthusiastically to get a fashion consultation. He came back dressed in an all-white outfit for exactly one episode before this was never mentioned again.
* Ruthiea, a polite, AffablyEvil [[{{Meganekko}} girl with glasses]] who enjoys creating universes and than forgetting that they exist. These universes often contain some [[AuthorAvatar representation of her]]. It's rumored that she was once a very nice girl, but than someone [[RantInducingSlight asked to borrow her favorite pencil]] and [[BewareTheNiceOnes it all went down hill from there]]. Her favorite tactic is a polite and yet effective form of [[MoreThanMindControl mind control]].
* Scrounge, a snarky scavenger who makes a grab for [[MacGuffin anything that looks important]] when it crosses his path, from alien superweapons to ancient stone tablets, and [[CrazyPrepared could be carrying anything at any given moment]]. He'll go to any length to get what he wants, be it an alien superweapon or [[TheCollector rare toy]]. He tends not to think things through all the way, but [[ObfuscatingStupidity he's surprisingly clever when he wants to be]]. His mindset seems to swing like a pendulum between wide-eyed optimism and sneering cynicism, and he's [[CardCarryingVillain determined to squelch that pesky noble streak of his]] that pops up every now and again. Rejects the traditional black leather in favor of [[RummageSaleReject creative use of denim]]. He's got a habit of giving his teammates odd nicknames if he thinks the name they go by is too "normal", such as calling Seth "Boss Boogeyman" and referring to Roland as "Hot Topic". In short, even by the illustrious standards of TVTW, he's a weird one. After the above-mentioned Roland/Renita rant, he complained about not getting shipped with anyone, and mentions that he finds Rutheia attractive, whereupon she turned out to be [[RightBehindMe right behind him, rolling her eyes]] and told him he was clueless about girls; the incident had no effect on how the fans Shipped, but Scrounge's failure rate with the ladies (and, in certain fanfics, the guys as well) has become a running gag amongst fans, and eventually made it into canon. Uses [[CoolButInefficient whatever weapon du jour he thinks will get him the most style points,]] [[ICallItVera all of which he's got names for,]] though his favorites are:
** The January Blade, an oversized knife enhanced with ice magic, which he always carries.
** A diesel-powered chainsaw-saber he calls the [[{{BFS}} Chainsword]].
** An inconveniently-large wrist-mounted buzzsaw launcher named Buzzkill.
** A [[ImprobableWeaponUser four-foot-long lead pipe]] known as Guido.
* Seth, a MadScientist and EvilOverlord. Seth is a skilled Ninja who commands a crack GenreBlind troop of cyborgs that he created. Seth is the first TVTW member to mention his allegiance on screen - during the LowerDeckEpisode "AATAFOVS/EvilStirsWithABigEvilSpoon" [[spoiler:{{Seth}}: You know, being a scientist who studies Ninjitsu, most of this is actually true. Later: Well now there are cyborgs so that's not true any more.]]
* Spirit Tsunami [[FourIsDeath IV]], a mysterious young man who showed up one day acting as if he'd been there all along. Carries a [[GreenRocks strange crystal]] that {{t|ransformationRay}}urns [[AppliedPhlebotinum things]] [[EquivalentExchange into]]...[[RealityWarper other]] [[BuffySpeak things]]. Has no known agenda of his own.
* A mysterious white-haired, bearded man in a [[BadassLongcoat tattered trenchcoat]] whom fans have taken to referring to as "The Stranger". His name is as-yet unrevealed on the show, though the initials "H.B.K." seem to be related. Seemingly more benign than the other TVTW members, he frequently gives the Vamp Benders cryptic clues that seem to lead them into far more trouble than they would otherwise face. Usually seen either smoking or rolling cigarettes filled with a strange white herb, that seem to light themselves. He's also rumored to be part Yeti.
* Tangent 128, an inadvertantly uploaded consciousness. Is only capable of physically manifesting as a [[ProjectedMan hologram]], but can [[EverythingIsOnline manipulate other systems]] to serve his bidding. Bugs in his code leave him with an allergy to the number 5. Prone to giving multi-hour monologues, but only stays on any given topic for about a minute. Often a gofer to other members of TVTW, as he doesn't have the attention span to see any plan of his own to completion.
* Vert, a strange member of the TVTW, always dressed in robes, appearing what seems to be at random in a few episodes to unleash carnage, using his [[ImprobableWeaponUser water gun]] with [[ImprobableAimingSkills deadly accuracy]]. He [[ButNotTooEvil never seems to kill anyone]], but the damage he causes is enough to make [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys most girls]] [[EvilIsSexy swoon over him]].
* Luminos, a necromancer [[BrilliantButLazy too lazy]] to collect the skeletons needed for his dark army. He Intends to become supremely powerful by correcting other people's {{grammar|Nazi}}. He is immune to irony.

Other recurring and significant one-shot enemies include:
* The Amazing Spider-Spider. Has the body of a spider and the proportional strength of a different spider. Suspected to merely be a spider that was unfortunate enough to wander into the Citadel. Nobody is actually certain if the Amazing Spider-Spider is evil, because it doesn't talk. Seth and Professor Van Doom often have [[SeinfeldianConversation long, pointless arguments]] about whether the Amazing Spider-Spider is male or female. Scrounge [[EpilepticTrees has his own theory]], but it was [[TheUnreveal put forth on the other side of a soundproof door]], and all the Audience saw that hinted at it were Scrounge's hand getsures and Jimmy's [[{{Squick}} disturbed reactions]].
* Devil Jirah, a massive, flame-spewing reptillian monster bearing a passing resemblance to a T-rex with horns and a back covered in razor-sharp, wickedly curved fins. [[BerserkButton Don't call him a lizard. Or a dragon.]]
* Hang Ten, surfer, executioner, and [[AnthropomorphicPersonification cruel spirit of the tides]]. Said to be spawned of Davy Jones himself. [[EvilerThanThou His hatred for Admiral Black is deeper than the darkest reaches of the ocean]], and he has little regard for the lives of those who set foot in his waters unless they prove themselves worthy.
* The Guppy Poop Troupe, a rather awkward group of teen miscreants that are [[GoldfishPoopGang mainly used for comic relief]]. When we first meet them in "Ring Rats", they're working at a pet shop, and all have a crush on Cleo. The members are:
** Randy, a musclebound magician
** Zakk, a scheming thief
** Slash, a happy-go-lucky accordion player.
** ''Appear in AATAFOVS/RingRats, AATAFOVS/ASliceOfTheLimeLight.''
* A nameless, driverless hearse that can be briefly seen following the Vamp Benders in certain episodes.
* The Order Of The Cleansing Flame, a group of [[KnightTemplar fanatical warrior-monks]] who [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope personally mete out dire punishment]] for even the [[AllCrimesAreEqual smallest of misdeeds]], such as jaywalking or the use of silly nicknames.
* The Blakesville Behemoths, a football team controlled by the forces of evil. Between games, they run rampant, looting and destroying like the Vikings of old. Ironically, this makes them better role models than about half the other teams in their league. ''Appear in AATAFOVS/FridayLiteBrites.''
* A little dog named Flippy.
* Angry Jock, Furious Jock, and Calm And Rational Jock, [[ViolentGlaswegian three thugs from Glasgow]]. They do not appear that often, although that may change.
* Loki. Yes, the Norse god of mischief. In a surprisingly non-traditional move for this show, he's not [[HijackedByJesus Satan]]. Rather, he's an [[CaptainErsatz homage]] to Q from ''Franchise/StarTrek''.
* N'Hemia: A [[HornyDevils succubus queen]] from [[LowestCosmicDenominator "the Netherworld"]]. [[HiddenAgendaVillain Her goals, if any, are unknown]]. Likes to [[{{Fanservice}} toy]] with the Vampbenders.
* A disembodied, mobile hand with superhuman strength and orange, rock-like skin. It has yet to write out its name, so everyone simply refers to it as "''that '''thing'''''."
* [[PunnyName Penny Dreadful]], villainess for hire. She originally went into villainy to stop her mother from nagging her about finding a nice boy and settling down, but she stays because she's become an adventure junkie.
* [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Mr. Mannheim and Mr. Steamroller, the Middle-Aged Firm]], troubleshooters, exterminators, recreational gravediggers, and retaliatory chiropractors.
* The Tabernacle Of Bacchus, a cult worshipping the god of wine. Though allegedly a religious order, they behave more like a group of frat boys with cloaks. Most people refer to them as the Pink Hierophants.
* A pair of AffablyEvil AmbiguouslyGay [[TalkingAnimal gophers]] who were once simply Affable, but turned to the path of darkness when they were [[BerserkButton mistaken for chipmunks]] one time too many. Now whenever someone makes that mistake, they kindly explain the primary differences between the species while butchering up the offender's body for fertilizer in their vegetable garden. Whether they're actually members of the Dark Council is unclear.
* The Brotherhood of the Cold Sun: a conspiracy of scientists who have allied themselves with the Gay Haitian Needle-Drug Yakuza in order to [[spoiler:perpetuate the myth of global warming to bring about a new ice age so their Cro-Magnon overlords can take over the world.]] Thag [=McLarg=] at first seems to be in control but latter in turns out the evil mastermind is [[spoiler:Al Gore who is secretly an evil Cro-Magnon. An AATAFOVS expanded universe novel ''AATAFOVS/TimeAfterCrime'' involves the gang going back in time to rig the 2000 Florida presidential election in favor of George W. Bush.]]
* The [[EvilCounterpart Shadow Sculptors]], a [[FiveBadBand band]] of champions from a [[TheHeartless universe of chaos and shadows]] created or gathered by Professor Udite's twisted counterpart, the Savant. Not especially evil, their goals- to save their own universe by stealing or gathering Narrativium from this one, as well as sustain their own lives- still put them in opposition to the Benders, and they have a wary alliance with the Dark Council. Have become [[EnsembleDarkhorse popular among some fans]] for their essentially heroic, if twisted natures, and often feature in [[DayInTheLimeLight spinoff stories, comics, and episodes.]] Their members include:
** Persona, Avatar's counterpart. A pale, ruthless young woman, Persona will stop at nothing to accomplish her goals and achieve revenge upon the Savant, whose unethical experiments imbued her with tremendous magical power in exchange for a ravenous appetite for others' personal Narrativium. Wields a bladed stave in combat and wears [[ElegantGothicLolita elegantly dark attire]] at all times. [[{{Tsundere}} Is not responding well to Avatar's attempts to resolve their differences without fighting one another.]] %%Previously named Eidolon, according to leaked production notes.
** Gestalt, Solo's counterpart. Persona's older sister, ''outwardly'' shy and chaste, but with a hinted-at [[CovertPervert ''highly creative'' imagination]]. Gestalt suffers from an extreme example of multiple personalities and, thanks to the Savant's experiments, can [[MesACrowd manifest any one of them more or less at will.]] Generally dresses in a warped nun's outfit; her various projections vary in outfit and personality. %%Originally named Appreggio.
** Claude, Sue's counterpart. A lean, almost feral night-skinned teenager with a very quiet, raspy voice and some difficulty relating to others. It's been hinted Claude literally ''devours'' Story Gates to keep his hyper-flexible, almost liquid body stable. He usually serves as the team's spy. Dresses in loose cargo pants and a sleeveless top, and carries [[KnifeNut a frankly terrifying assortment of knives.]] Oddly enough, he got on well with Nerdly for some reason the few times they've met.
** Debutante. A sixteen-year-old, stylish teenaged fangirl of Persona who somehow managed to tag along. Stunning, socially adept....and she gives no indications she's got a brain in her head. [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Most of the time.]] The rest of the team generally humors her more out of exasperation than any real use...[[SuperpoweredEvilSide but harbors a terrifying, world-destroying]] EldritchAbomination, the Wyrm of Twilight. Dresses in a rather warped cheerleader outfit.
** Andrews von Mansfield de Litchensteinen the Twenty-Fifth. A Shadow-verse holy man, he serves as the team's chaplain but isn't averse to [[ChurchMilitant mixing it up a little]] with his favorite [[{{BFG}} oversized, bayonnet-mounted shotgun]]. Takes most of his religious oaths with a shaker's worth of salt, but staunchly chaste and in fact AllergicToLove, much to many female characters' disappointment.
** Scales. The team's pet juvenile dragon. Occasionally displays the ability to become...a small, fluffy kitten, always with an overblown TransformationSequence and OminousLatinChanting accompaniment.
* Stainless Steel, a three-tailed, magically-enhanced Fox Demon with gray fur. He first appeared in the Web Animation AATAFOVS/KrystalClarity, as an enemy Krystal was on the run from before joining up with the Vamp Benders. In the end, he is seen talking to Persona in a bar of the shadier sort. Very [[PettingZooPeople furry]], very {{bish|onen}}y, wears a spiked collar. No ones sure if he's gonna be in the show or not, but the fangirls (and certain fanboys) [[PerverseSexualLust seem unnervingly fond of him]]. Conceived as one of the Shadow Sculptors, but replaced with Debutante at about the same time Eidolon and Appreggio's names were changed to Persona and Gestalt; according to the web site, the character design would have gone to waste, so they used it for the webisode.

The makers of AATAFOVS have stated that Schlorph, The Countess Sirena, Pervertigo and other members of the Council of Evil will have a more prominent place in the third season. They refuse to comment on the future role of TVTW, promising only "something interesting". As for antagonists not in either group, the official response was "Huh? What? Oh, ''those'' guys! Er.... Can we get back to you on that?"
