->''"Of all the stupid things in the stupid world of stupid people acting stupid, you boys are the stupidliest! It's like you're trying to win a stupid contest but you're too stupid to take a stupidity test!"''

The former Head of Decommissioning and current Global Tactics Officer. She's a shrill girl with a particular intolerance for the male sex. But due to her behavior, she has next to no friends. Voiced by JenniferHale.

* ActionGirl
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Numbuh Ninteenth Century.
* BerserkButton: Saying anything anti-feminist around her is a big No-No.
** Also don't ever call her "Toots", as Numbuh 2 learned the hard way in "Operation: P.I.N.K.-E.Y.E."
* BreakTheHaughty
* CoolHelmet
** BucketHelmet
* DaddysGirl
* DaddysLittleVillain: Inverted. She's Mr. Boss' (who leads the bad guys) daughter, but while she's extremely unpleasant and feared by everyone, she's still one of the good guys' leaders.
* DoesNotLikeMen:
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Fanny
* FieryRedhead: Bordering on EvilRedhead.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar / StealthPun: During "Operation: G.R.A.D.U.A.T.E.S." she was turned into a dog, resulting in a muttering of "Well that figures..." [[spoiler:-- because she's a [[{{Jerkass}} bitch]], that's why]].
** Her name in the UK is a bit obscene too (see MeaningfulName below)
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: As much as Numbuh Three.
* GoodIsNotNice
* HiddenHeartOfGold: She keeps it ''very'' well hidden.
* {{Jerkass}}: Later went from StrawFeminist to a just plain jerk to everyone.
* LittleMissBadass
* MeaningfulName:
** Numbuh in this case. When you look at her rank: "to eighty-six" means to eliminate/kick out or (for restaurant cooks) to take something off the menu.
** Her first name is meaningful in the UK and Ireland where she is from. In the UK, "fanny" is a vulgar slang term for the female genitalia on par with the word "cunt" . "Cunt," in both UK and US slang, is also used to mean someone who is unpleasant [[note]](it's stronger than "bitch" and is probably one of the few curse words out there that is still considered shocking and will never be heard uncensored in the media. In fact, it's on GeorgeCarlin's list of the seven words you can't say on TV)[[/note]], so combining that with Fanny's personality, and you have a MeaningfulName that [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar somehow got past the censors -- at least the ones in the UK]] [[note]](in American English, "fanny" is one of many slang terms for the human buttocks and isn't considered obscene at all. Funny and a tad improper -- yes, but not so obscene that it's unmentionable)[[/note]].
* TheMedic: A flashback to Numbuh Five's second Mission shows 86 wearing hat with a cross and checking on the injured. How she went from a medic to head of decommissioning is not explained.
* MoralityPet: To Mr. Boss.
* NeverMyFault: Her introduction episode, in which she never takes responsibility for her own blunders that wound up hampering Sector V's efforts for the mission. Thank goodness [[LaserGuidedKarma karma kicked in]] when the spy she thought she captured turned out to be an undercover agent (Number 362 in fact), whose mission was ruined by 86; she gets harshly chewed out for it. (For added irony, throughout most of the episode she was putting down the boys in the group for the most minor screw ups. End of the episode saw a ''girl'' doing this to her.)
* NoIndoorVoice: She yells quite often.
* NoodleIncident: According to a canon comic, whatever made her hate boys happened after she became an operative.
* {{Oireland}}
* PeekABangs: Sometimes.
* RedheadInGreen
* StrawFeminist: Later became less of this and more flat-out unfriendly to everyone.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak
* TooDumbToLive: She's really dedicated to her job, so much so that it blinds her to the most obvious points of logic. Such as in Operation E.N.D., when she is sent to capture and decommission Sector V based on the fact the computer says they're turning 13. Numbuh One points out they're in the same age group, ''they even went to kindergarten together''. But nope, if the databanks says they're teens, it ''must'' be true! No point in questioning it.
* {{Tsundere}}: A G-rated [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka]], really.

'''Numbuh Three Sixty Two''' / '''Rachel T. [=McKenzie=]'''

->''"As Kids Next Door Soopreme Leader, I hearby order you to... go long!"''

Originally the top spy in the KND, she is now its current Soopreme Leader. Due to her busy and demanding job, she's often stressed, but at heart she stands stubbornly for the rights of kids everywhere, and if the situation arises she can be fun-loving too. Has grown to form a close friendship with Nigel Uno. Voiced by Creator/RachaelMacFarlane.

She ordered them to come back to the base which was also under attack but Nigel refuses till the museum was safe. Once Sector V did that as well as save the base single-handily, she chews out Nigel for disobeying orders. She does apologize later though once Grandfather is defeated, admitting if she had listened to him before the whole mess would've never happened.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: In "Operation: I.T.". To be fair, in her world being normal means spending all day doing whatever you want in a giant treehouse and going on exciting missions.
* LittleMissBadass
* MeaningfulName: She's two numbers off from 360, a full circle. As in the KND revolves completely around her.

'''Father''' [[spoiler:/ '''Benedict Uno''']]
->''"Bravo, Mr. Uno. You managed to skillfully outwit a bunch of children. The question is, do you have what it takes to play with the big boys?"''

The mysterious head villain, Father is a man who wears a suit of shadows and is skilled in very dark powers. He schemes to enslave all children and turn them into his twisted version of "delightful". But despite his dark and malicious appearance, sometimes all he wants to do is curl up in a bathrobe with some Rocky Road. He is voiced by Creator/MauriceLaMarche.

* AchillesHeel: He can be rendered helpless by large amounts of water or cold substances, like ice cream. Strangely, he eats it occasionally, especially when depressed.
* {{Adorkable}}: [[spoiler:His child self can qualify as this. As for his adult version, it depends]].
* AffablyEvil
* ArchEnemy: To the Kids Next Door in general and Numbuh One in particular.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: [[spoiler:You've gotta admit, Benedict Uno has a nice ring to it.]]
* {{Badass}}: Arguably even more badass than ''Grandfather''. ''WesternAnimation/OperationZERO'' implies that he's stronger than Grandfather, but that he lacks any real motivation or confidence because of his childhood.
* BigBad
* BreakTheHaughty
* BurningWithAnger: Not just WreathedInFlames, but they increase in intensity when angry.
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler:The Cain to Numbuh Zero's Abel.]]
* CardCarryingVillain
* ChildHater
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Proabaly a power inherited from Grandfather (its never really explained) but the shadow look is a cover giving him his powers and intimidating nature. The one time its taken off, we see the real Father (and [[spoiler: he's surprisingly rather nerdy looking.]])
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Kinda becomes this through VillainDecay.
* CowardlyLion: A villainous example. He is too afraid of Grandfather, which is why the latter has a disdain for him.
* DiabolicalMastermind
* DisproportionateRetribution: In the finale, he wants to kill Numbuh One for stealing his pipe.
* DistinguishedGentlemansPipe
* DoesNotLikeSpam: He hates broccoli. In fact, he claims that ''everyone'' hates it, and that the only reason that adults make kids eat it is so that ''they'' don't have to. In fact, [[spoiler: in "Operation: I.T.", Numbuh 362 was able to subdue him by threatening to forcefeed it to him.]]
* EnemyMine: With the KND in ''WesternAnimation/OperationZERO'' [[spoiler:He wimps out when he loses the motivation.]]
* EvilIsBurningHot: Is it ''ever''.
* EvilIsHammy: You can tell Creator/MauriceLaMarche is having way too much fun with this role.
* EvilPlan: One in each episode but the overarching is one to bring down the KND organization.
* [[spoiler:EvilUncle: To Nigel.]]
* [[spoiler:FreudianExcuse]]: [[spoiler:Grandfather makes him look like a saint and the reason he refused to help fight him wasn't out of evil but out of pure fear. Grandfather also liked his brother better than him and treated him like crap. We also see Father break down and curl up on the floor when threatened to be forcefed broccoli because Grandfather did it to him in such a way he was traumatized for life!]]
* GlowingEyesOfDoom
* HairTriggerTemper: Through {{Flanderization}}.
* HatesBeingTouched
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Father's fire powers are this in certain episodes.
* HumanoidAbomination: Can in ways be seen as this.
* KnightOfCerebus: Before the decay set in, he was taken ''very'' seriously whenever he showed up.
* [[spoiler:LukeIAmYourFather]]: [[spoiler:In TheMovie he reveals he's Numbuh One's uncle.]]
* TheManBehindTheMan: In the earlier episodes, the Delightful Children were the main villains, though he was mentioned in the first episode. In "Operation: C.A.N.N.O.N." the Delightfuls mention a curfew alert stating that they had to leave their butt whupping on Sector V or else Father would be angry.
* {{Manchild}} / PsychopathicManchild: He really is no more mature than most of the Kids he battles.
* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler: His real name comes from real life figure Benedict Arnold who was best known as a traitor to the U.S during the Revolutionary War. As shown in the movie, when given the chance to fight against Grandfather alongside Numbuh Zero, B. Uno was too scared to do so and exits, not once but ''twice''.]]
* MoralMyopia: Has own experiences of child abuse from his father, yet is perfectly fine with bullying kids during his grown up years.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: In various episodes he's displayed one-time powers like MindOverMatter (Operation: C.A.K.E.D.-F.I.V.E.) and MesACrowd. (Operation: I.T.)
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His voice is a parody of Kirk Douglas, [[HeyItsThatVoice which LaMarche previously used]] on ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''.
* PlayingWithFire: Gets it from his dad.
* RealMenWearPink
* SinisterSilhouettes
* TheUnfavorite: Grandfather favored [[spoiler: Zero]] over him mostly because Father was too spineless to stand up for himself.

'''The Delightful Children from Down the Lane''' [[spoiler:/ '''Sector Z''']]

->''"Hello Kids Next Door. Perhaps you would like to try kicking our posteriors now?"''

Father's eerie children, supposedly an adult's view of the "perfect" kids. They are educated, well-dressed and polite, but uncivilized in their burning hatred for the Kids Next Door. They always appear clustered together, move as one and speak [[VoiceOfTheLegion in perfect unison]].

* HiveMind[=/=]IAmLegion[=/=]SpeakInUnison[=/=]VoiceOfTheLegion: They talk and act as if they are just one person instead of five.
* HypocrisyNod: They never get tired of calling the KND Stupid or foolish, despite the fact that the reason their plans keep usually fail is because their own intellience can be compared to that of a box of hammers.
* {{Jerkass}}es: Despite their image as "perfect children", they're sadistic and cruel to everyone else of their own kind, particularly whenever it's their birthday where they never share their cake with other kids and ''flaunt it''.

* [[SharpDressedMan Sharp Dressed Children]]
* ShoutOut: They seem to based on the antagonists in one of the Co-Creator's 1996 ''KaBlam'' Sketch The Off-Beats known as The Populars.

* {{Stepford Smiler}}s

* StudentCouncilPresident: In "Operation: E.L.E.C.T.I.O.N.S.". Lampshaded in "U.N.D.E.R.C.O.V.E.R." by Lenny.

[[folder:Chad Dickson]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chad_knd.jpg]]
'''Chad Dickson''' / formerly '''Numbuh Two Seventy-Four'''

->''"There was no way I was going to turn over everything I ever built, everything I ever worked for, to a bunch of snot-nosed kids!"''

Former Soopreme Leader of the Kids Next Door idolized and loved by all, he turned evil the moment he turned thirteen. He then served as a high-ranking member of the Teen Ninjas, and lost all the respect he had to his name. Generally cocky and approving of himself, both before and after his betrayal. Voiced by Jason Harris.

* BecomingTheMask: Sort of. [[spoiler:He's faking treachery and is a secret teen operative for the KND... however, after many defeats, his hatred for Numbuh One becomes real and he tries to kill him in his final appearance in the show.]]
* BadassNormal
* BigBrotherMentor: Was this when he was still Numbuh 274.
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* CardCarryingVillain
* ChildHater
* EvilIsDumb: After he turns evil, he automatically loses competence. [[spoiler:This may be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by his role as a mole. (Hey, that rhymes.)]]
* FaceHeelTurn
* FallenHero
* [[spoiler:FakeDefector]]: [[spoiler:Revealed in "Operation: T.R.E.A.T.Y.", though, as evidenced by his VillainousBreakdown, he genuinely does have a lot of negative qualities.]]
* [[spoiler:GoodAllAlong]]
* [[spoiler:GoodIsNotNice]]: [[spoiler:He was nice when he was Soopreme Commander. But when he showed he was a deep cover agent, his jealousy still made him act like a nasty tool.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: During Nigel's training days, Chad showed him a move that left Nigel flat on his back. [[spoiler: In his final battle against Numbuh 1, Nigel uses the same move to beat him.]]
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler: As Numbuh 1 states, he was the best of the KND and he could've just bowed out gracefully while still keeping his Mole status. Indeed, if he hadn't let his pride get the better of him, he would've left a great legacy behind. He was the one who trained Numbuh 1 after all, so the kids would've definitely looked up to him after his departure. Maurice had the common sense to realize this, and allowed himself to be "decommissioned" so the KND would at least know of his reason for going bad and not have a grudge against him. Chad, however, acted too rashly (trying to destroy the KND base and then fleeing), so he'll forever have a traitor status to his name despite working behind the scenes.]]
** It ''can'' be argued that [[spoiler: his false FaceHeelTurn was so the villains would be more convinced. After all, a legendary KND suddenly wants to go evil for no reason and they aren't supposed to be suspicious?]]
* ItsPersonal: The underlying resentment between Chad and Numbuh One over his betrayal led to a fight between the two in ''Operation: T.R.E.A.T.Y.'' By that point, it had become ''extremely'' personal.
* LamarckWasRight: His parents are Destructo Dad and Mega Mom, and he later becomes more of a recurring threat than they ever were.
** The only time they are only mentioned (as his parents) is during "Operation E.N.D." but they aren't mentioned by name. They attend many supervillain meetings, but their bond between Chad isn't mentioned again.
* PeekABangs
* {{Pride}}: He thinks he's still the best there is.
* TeensAreMonsters
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:In his last appearance, he gets so jealous of Nigel for being the best Kid Next Door on Earth that he tries to kill him.]]
** [[spoiler: Operation: E.N.D likewise had this as his plans to fix the damage backfire royally culimating with him ranting how hard it is to run an organization full of "brats".]]

The show's most pathetic villain. He gets no respect from the Kids Next Door or his fellow villains. Voiced by Creator/DeeBradleyBaker.

* ButtMonkey: [[DCComics Pre-Crisis]] [[ChewToy Doctor Light]] could kick his ass.
* CardCarryingVillain

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's show several signs of this through the series... Idiot though he may be, this does still apply.
** "Operation F.L.U.S.H." -- He takes out five other villains thinking they're KND operatives in disguise. Of course, the five villains in question had just successfully taken over the Sector V treehouse, and then (just as he thought how could things get any worse) Numbuhs 1-5 (The actual members of Sector V who have been all excused from school early) show up and kick his butt. He's even stupider than we thought.
* DudeWheresMyRespect

Though, in the CM/HB example he referred to Numbuh Four (actually Nightbrace) as his arch-nemesis. Gets kinda weird when it's revealed in a canon comic that [[spoiler:he's Numbuh Four's uncle.]]
* [[GranolaGirl Granola Guy]]: Likes vegetables, hates meat.
* HarmlessVillain: He's called the ''Toiletnator'', for crying out loud!
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Very ineffectual, very sympathetic. Except when he is kind of effective.
* TheMillstone: To the villains. ''Oh, so much''.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain
** He comes up with a plan in "Operation: M.O.V.I.E.S." that impresses the other villains. Too bad Numbuh Four heard it first.
** He also managed to "flush" the entire Grand Canyon after the KND filled it with cereal and milk.
** In one episode, he manages to defeat the other villains single-handedly after he believes they're the KND in disguise.
* ToiletHumor: Played with. This is a kids' show, so it's used only in the most literal sense.
* VillainEpisode: "Operation: F.L.U.S.H."
* VillainsOutShopping
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: His motif is questionable. It also seems he's got some psychic control over flushing.
** HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Invoked. See the entries on CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass and NotSoHarmlessVillain. It doesn't seem so much that his powers are useless, he's just normally too short-sighted to use them correctly.
* TheWorfEffect: Grandfather uses him to demonstrate how dangerous citi-zombies are by making him his first victim.

[[folder:Stickybeard]]
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stickybeard.jpg]]
'''Stickybeard'''

A spirited candy pirate who loots and plunders candy from neighborhood children. He respects Numbuh Five and seeks her as an apprentice. Voiced by MarkHamill.

* BadassBeard
* BadassNormal: Among few villains that don't have superpowers
* CaptainColorbeard: Or Adjective-beard.
* CardCarryingVillain
* DressedToPlunder: He wears an eyepatch, a black bicorner hat with a skull on it, a Blackbeard-style beard (with candy stuck in it), and a peg-leg and hook-hand both made from candy canes.
* EnemyMine: With Numbuh Five, against Black John Licorice.
* EternallyPearlyWhiteTeeth: Inverted. His teeth are incredibly rotten from all the candy.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He refuses to allow the Great White Asparagus to eat Sector V. Though that was more of a TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou moment than anything else. Though over all, he does seem to have some degree of honor.
** He even told Numbuh 5 to not mention the incident to the other villains.
* FriendlyEnemy: With Numbuh Five (at least).
* HookHand: With a candy cane instead of a hook.
* {{Pirate}}
* SeriousBusiness: Candy stealing is his prime modus operandi. Get in the way of that, and you're good as dead. And also being told if he was "sugar-free".
** Being called "sugar-free" is SeriousBusiness to ''any'' candy pirate as he says this to Black John Licorice.
* TalkLikeAPirate: Of course, since he's an odd {{Expy}} of Blackbeard.
* VillainsOutShopping: He helped Numbuh Five in Operation Licorice and saved her and her team in Operation Afloat. You can say that he has a soft spot for her.
* WeCanRuleTogether: To Numbuh Five. It almost succeeded until she remembered her friends, but now it leads to below.
** WorthyOpponent: To Numbuh Five. She's the only person in the world who can beat him in a sugar swallowing contest (Black John Licorice might disagree). She's the only one to give him an affection nickname of, "Sticky Buns" in return.

A pair of villains who use robotic [[HumongousMecha Super Chairs]] to fight the KND. Mr. Wink is voiced by TomKenny and Mr. Fibb is voiced by Creator/DeeBradleyBaker.

* BlindingBangs: Mr. Wink
* {{Expy}}: They're repackaged versions of the assassins from ''Film/DiamondsAreForever.''
* [[spoiler:FreudianExcuse]]: According to Mr. Fibb in ''Operation: C.O.W.G.I.R.L.'', [[spoiler:he and Mr. Wink "grew up" because Mr. Fibb didn't get to go to the prom with Lasso Lass.]] This would also explain their hatred toward the KND - [[spoiler:the kids probably remind them of their younger selves in the Cowboy Kids Club.]]
* HumongousMecha: Expect any chairs they may be sitting in to be a Super Chair of some kind.
* MisterXAndMisterY: Naturally, considering their origin (see {{Expy}} above).
* StarterVillain
* ThoseTwoBadGuys
* VillainousBreakdown: In ''Operation: C.O.W.G.I.R.L.'', [[spoiler:when their FreudianExcuse is revealed]]. Another immediately follows when [[spoiler:it turns out Lasso Lass really ''did'' like Mr. Fibb, but he's so shy he runs away screaming at the thought of kissing her. A similar incident occurs between Mr. Wink and Clip-Clop]], and they never appear as major villains again.

[[folder: Professor XXX-L]]
'''Professor XXX-L'''

An insane scientist whose main goal is to create the perfect snowcone. Voiced by Creator/FrankWelker.

* AntiVillain
* {{Irony}}: The biggest obstacle to his goal to perfect the snowcone is the fact that he suffers from [[BrainFreeze ice cream headaches]] very easily.
* MadScientist
* VillainyFreeVillain: He may be the least evil villain the KND have ever fought next to the Toilenator. Yes he did kidnap Numbuh One but it was for a good cause, though given how Ice Cream seems to be only legally given to adults in this world, odds are he may not have shared his perfect snowcone with the children of the world [[SeriousBusiness which in this world is a serious blow to kid-kind]].

'''Heinrich Von Marzipan'''/[[spoiler:'''Henrietta Von Marzpan''']]

->''"Ach, lipschen, I say so many things I do not mean. Like, ah, no more candy for me, or, who would like some of my lollipops!"''

A former friend of Numbuh Five and current candy-hunting rival. He greedily seeks forbidden candy regardless of the consequences. Voiced by Creator/DeeBradleyBaker[=/=]Creator/CandiMilo.

* ArchEnemy: To Numbuh Five.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Got turned into a chocolate monster that can turn anything he touches into chocolate. After Numbuh Five defeats him, the KND turns him back to normal.
* CardCarryingVillain
* [[spoiler:GenderBender: In sacrificing his beauty, he switched genders. He's actually a girl.]]
* {{Greed}}: Obsessed with getting candy and never sharing it, which usually leads to many of his downfalls.
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]]
* HighClassGlass
* {{Homage}}: To ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' Nazi villains.
* ILied: As his quote indicates.
* NeverMyFault: He does this a lot, such as in his first appearance where he blames Abby for tainting the candy with the taste of asparagus when she warned him before hand that being greedy will put that curse into effect. It's also [[spoiler: his grudge for the Guatemala Incident as after he sacrificed his beauty due to yet another curse. He once more blamed Abby for not stopping him from eating his caramels and supposedly leaving him stuck in that state. Turns out she was trying to find a way to break the curse.]]
* OneWingedAngel: In his first appearance after obtaining a jewel, he transforms into a monster with power of candy. Numbuh Five defeats him. After falling into a chocolate volcano, he returned as a powerful monster who can turn things into chocolate by touching it. He was cured by the KND.
* NoodleIncident: Throughout the series he remains angry at Numbuh Five for "Guatemala". His last appearance in Operation CARAMEL reveals that [[spoiler:he performed a ritual to get delicious caramel by sacrificing their best trait (in his case ''her'' beauty) and blamed Numbuh Five for allowing it to happen.]]
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: When he returns after falling into a chocolate volcano, having been turned into a chocolate monster.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Grandfather]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Grandfather_2441.jpg]]
'''Grandfather'''

Father [[spoiler:and Monty Uno[=/=]Numbuh Zero]]'s father and an EvilOverlord who once ruled the entire planet. He's by far the most dangerous enemy the KND have ever faced and makes Father look like a saint compared to him. Acted as the BigBad in TheMovie. Voiced by Neil Ross.

* AbusiveParent: He's ''why'' Father is the way he is.
* ArchnemesisDad: To [[spoiler:Numbuh 0]].
* BigBad: Of TheMovie.
* BiggerBad: Of the series as a whole.
* CardCarryingVillain: The first thing he says after being reawakened is to thank Father for "reawakening the pure evil" laying dormant within him.
* CurbStompBattle: It didn't take him a whole lot of effort reconquering the world, likely because his minions are borderline invincible.
* TheDarkTimes: His previous reign. After that, it's little surprise the KND are so fearful of adults.
* DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans: His intent is nothing less than a CrapsackWorld where kids, and the second time, anyone who had ''ever'' been a kid, toils endlessly to create tapioca pudding for his consumption. It's a ''lot'' worse than it sounds.
* EvilOverlord: Once ruled the world with an iron fist before Numbuh Zero betrayed and defeated him.
* EvilerThanThou: To literally every villain in the RoguesGallery once they find out his plan to turn everyone that's ever been a kid into Senior Citizombies includes them. Father outright states that Grandfather is eviler than him before reviving him, calling him "The World's Most UltimateEvil".
* {{Expy}}: He seems to be partially based on Aku from ''SamuraiJack'' -- a black, shadowy monster who stands a couple stories tall in his natural state, can manipulate fire, and his very awakening spells doom for the whole world.
* FisherKing: When he rules the world, he uses his RealityWarper abilities to convert it into an old-style CrapsackWorld complete with child labor and Industral Era-style factories making tapioca pudding for him to eat.
* GenreSavvy: Is smart enough to NOT underestimate HopeSpringsEternal and understands he hasn't really won until he's destroyed the Book of KND, which let Numbuh Zero defeat him the last time. He also doesn't go out to find it until nearly the entire world is under his control and the Kids Next Door are all but destroyed.
* HumanoidAbomination
* LargeHam: Is an even bigger ham than his son.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Literally; his memory was erased by Numbuh Zero using some kind of laser, reducing him to a harmless old man until he's "recommissioned" by Father. This is the only way to defeat him, as all other attempts failed.
* NighInvulnerability: His reaction to getting [[ColonyDrop crushed under the entire Kids Next Door Moonbase]] is to dust himself off and ask if they really thought that would work.
* NoOntologicalInertia: His defeat restores the world to normal.
* OhCrap: Seeing the moon base barreling down on top of him. True it didn't do anything to hurt him, but A for catching him off guard.
* PhysicalGod: He's the single strongest villain in the series and is capable of surviving a direct hit from a ColonyDrop without even a scratch. He can also 'age' the entire world at will.
* PlayingWithFire: Father gets it from him.
* RapidAging: His primary ability is to age everything he touches, though not only does he age them rapidly, he turns them into his 'Senor Citizombie' minions. All individuals he ages gain the ability to do it to others.
* RealityWarper: He's capable of changing the world as he sees fit, normally to a more "old time" look.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: His human form is a harmless old man so long as his memories aren't restored.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Tapioca pudding, so much so that was one of the reasons he wanted to rule the earth.
* TransformationSequence: Unlike Father, who just grows his "shadow suit" back, Grandfather sucks in the shadows from everything in the room to form his after being reawakened in a much more elaborate fashion.
* UngratefulBastard: Not even reviving him wins [[spoiler:Father]] any affection; he flat-out tells him to leave after being revived.
* TheVirus
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: ''Oh good god, yes''.
* WalkingWasteland: His RapidAging affects everything in his path. He has to make physical contact with people, however.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Done to Father, apparently not even reawakening him from his slumber earns his respect.
* [[ZombieApocalypse Citizombie Apocalypse]]

!Other Characters

[[folder:Lizzie]]
[[quoteright:154:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lizzie_knd.png]]
'''Elizabeth Devine''' (Lizzie)

Numbuh One's demanding girlfriend. While she's quite clingy, she ''does'' genuinely care for Nigel, but his work for the Kids Next Door strains their relationship. Voiced by GreyDeLisle.

* BadassNormal: Bonus points for not being a KND Operative.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In her first appearance, she brainwashed Nigel into being her obediant boyfriend and even tried to make him destroy to his friends. The KND fight back and Nigel is unbrainwashed, but the episode ends with Lizzie [[KarmaHoudini getting the date she wanted anyway]]. Later episodes more or less completely ignored her origin story, and considerably softened her character.
* ClingyJealousGirl
* DayInTheLimelight: "Operation: L.U.N.C.H." and "Operation: L.E.A.D.E.R.". The first half of "Operation: P.O.O.L." has her sharing the spotlight with Nigel.
* EasilyForgiven: Nigel and the rest of Sector V had no hard feelings over the little matter of her having originally tried to ''{{brainwash}}'' him. Though it's mostly Numbuh One and Numbuh Three. Numbuh Two and Four openly dislike her, dreading any contact with her at all. They just don't verbalize it much due to fearing her bad temper (at least Numbuh Two fears her temper). Numbuh Five is tolerant of her at best.
* EyeGlasses
* FatGirl
* FieryRedhead
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler:She and Numbuh One eventually break up when she realizes the world needs him more than she does, and that his first loyalty will always be to the Kids Next Door.]]
* LethalChef
* LetsGetDangerous: When she's properly motivated (either by Numbuh One being in danger or her plans being interrupted one too many times), she's a mecha-commandeering force to be reckoned with.
* TheLoad: She's not an operative. Subverted when she proves to be capable of handling herself in certain situations such as "Operation: C.A.K.E.D.-T.W.O.", "Operation: P.O.O.L.", and "Operation: D.A.T.E."
* NoIndoorVoice:
* OfficialCouple: Her and Numbuh One. [[spoiler:They break up later, and ''she'' is the one who brought it up.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* PaletteSwap: She has the same physical appearence as one of the Delightful Children From Down The Lane (Which is lampshaded in "Operation: C.A.K.E.D.-T.W.O.").
* PuppyLove: With Numbuh One.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A and ''hard'', sometimes dipping into {{yandere}}'ish tendencies in her more extreme moods.
