[[folder:The Burners]]
!!Tropes that apply to the whole team
* AnimalMotifs: For their cars.
** Mike: [[HeroicDog Mutt]]
*** MeaningfulName: Mutt's engine revving distinctly sounds like a dog growl.
** Julie: [[CatsHaveNineLives 9 Lives]]
*** CatGirl: Julie's avatar has cat ears.
*** MeaningfulName: Like Mutt's dog growl, 9 Lives' engine sounds similar to a tiger roar.
*** CowboyCop: 9 Lives is a former police car, and still has red and blue lights on the roof as well as "POLICE" written on the back.
** Dutch: [[BewareMyStingerTail Whiptail]]
** Texas: [[RhinoRampage Stronghorn]]
** Jacob: [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Sasquatch]]
* BadassCrew
** [[BadassDriver Badass Drivers]]
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: The Burners have a "B" logo that sorta looks like a billiard ball with a trail of fire behind it.
* ColorCodedCharacters: Each of the Burners have a distinctive signature color, which carries over to their rides - Texas is red, Julie's yellow, Mike's green, Chuck's blue, and Dutch is purple.
* CoolCar
** [[spoiler: CoolBike: Chopper-Mutt]]
** PimpedOutCar
* DefectorFromDecadence: Mike, Dutch and Julie all came down from Deluxe, all with bitter resentment towards Kane's rule. [[WordOfGod A doodle from the staff room]] has implied Chuck is a similar case, though Texas' backstory is currently ambiguous.
* FemaleFelineMaleMutt: Played straight with the drivers. Mike drives the dog-themed Mutt while Julie drives the cat-themed 9 Lives. Averted with the cars themselves, which are all referred to as if they were female, like boats.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Mike.
** TheLancer: Julie. She might be the girl, but with her mad skills, assertive attitude, and willingness to oppose Mike, she is the true lancer.
** TheBigGuy: Texas, who ''thinks'' he's TheLancer and ''wants'' to be TheHero.
** TheSmartGuy: Dutch.
** TheChick: Chuck. Screams like a girl, does whatever Mike says, and occasionally serves as his moral compass. Also fulfills the typical [[NonActionGuy "non-action"]] part of the trope as he typically rides shotgun with Mike. [[note]]Chuck does have his own car, Blonde Thunder; however, it doesn't get much use since Chuck doesn't know how to drive.[[/note]]
** TheMentor[=/=]TeamDad: Jacob.
** TeamPet: R.O.T.H.
* FiveTokenBand: You have Mike ([[AmbiguouslyBrown mixed]] [[MixedAncestry race]]), Julie ([[TheSmurfettePrinciple only girl]]), Chuck ({{token white}}), Dutch ([[BlackAndNerdy black]]), and Texas ([[AsianAirhead Filipino]]).
* [[HeroWithBadPublicity Heroes With Bad Publicity]]
* LaResistance
* MultinationalTeam
* TeensAreShort: Averted with Mike, Chuck, and Dutch, who are about as tall as most adult men; played straight with Julie and Texas.
* TrueCompanions

!!Mike Chilton
->''Voiced by: Reid Scott''

The hero of the series. Mike used to live and work in Deluxe as Kane's top cadet, but when he saw what kind of man Kane really was, he quit and fled to Motorcity. Now, as leader of the Burners, he fights Kane with everything he has.

* TheAce: He was Kane's top cadet in his Deluxe days.
* AffectionateNickname[=/=]InSeriesNickname: Mikey.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: WordOfGod has confirmed that he's [[MixedAncestry mixed race]]. Fandom has varying opinions, but the general consensus is that he's of [[http://peopleofmotorcity.tumblr.com/post/29253752562/snazzy-lemon-drawing-from-my-livestream-bby Middle Eastern descent]].
* AwesomeMcCoolName
* BadassAdorable: Mike's most admirable traits next to his superior combat prowess are his Boy Scout-like idealism and compassion for others.
%%* BadassBiker
* BadassInDistress: In "Ride the Lightning", he manages to take out all of his Kane Co captors simply by enraging Tooley in attacking them accidentally despite being tied up. [[spoiler:In "A Better Tomorrow", he manages to knock out Red despite being shackled to the wall by [[HoistByHisOwnPetard shocking him with his own electrified gloves]].]]
* BadassNormal: Even outside his ride, he displays expert agility, endurance, and fighting skills. For example: [[spoiler:He fights Red while chained to a wall, with Red in full PoweredArmor, and wins.]]
* BigLittleBrother: Presumably to Capri.
* BigOlEyebrows [[https://41.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m8m4u3xcTh1raibd0o2_500.png More or less.]]
* BoisterousBruiser: No one should look ''that'' happy being constantly thrown into near-death situations.
** Heck, in the episode "Ride of the Fantasy Vans", a group of live-action role players gave him the nickname 'Mike the Smiling Dragon.'
* [[BrainyBrunette Brainy Brunet]]: It is subtle, but he is a strategic genius from his cadet training. However, he usually uses his IndyPloy.
* ChildSoldiers: Was a military commander ''at the age of 16.''
* CombatPragmatist: He'll do most anything to stop Kane, which to him mostly means beefing up the group's tech and weaponry.
* {{Determinator}}
* DrivesLikeCrazy: According to Chuck.
* {{Expy}}: While the complete opposite in terms of personality, he does look a touch like [[{{Music/Gorillaz}} Murdoc]].
* [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity]]: He does this in the finale. [[spoiler:''Twice''. He doesn't actually die, of course]]
* GoodAllAlong: He was a [[GullibleLemmings Gullible Lemming]], and [[BrokenPedestal when he realized Kane was evil]] he split.
* TheHeart: The Burners regard him as the center of their team; in early episodes they argue and nearly fall apart without him.
* TheHero
** HumbleHero: Despite all of the incredibly selfless things he's done, he's still very down to earth about it all.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Him and Chuck, to an astounding degree.
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: A ''[[DoubleWeapon double-edged]]'' chainsaw made of ''zippolighters'' that can ''compress into a palm-sized metal skull''... that he can also use as a [[MundaneUtility gear shift accessory.]]
** ChainsawGood
** PrecisionGuidedBoomerang
** RetractableWeapon
** SpinToDeflectStuff
* ImprobableAge: Mike is supposed to be ''17''. Forget that he's barely past the legal age of driving, how'd he become a daredevil/hand-to-hand fighter on par with most animated badasses? [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And why is he so]] ''[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking tall]]''?
** He was trained to be badass [[TykeBomb since he was a kid]].
* InHarmsWay: Mike is a complete adrenaline junkie. In one episode he's so stir-crazy from lack of activity that he points his laser guns at Jacob.
* IndyPloy: He'll usually have a plan beforehand, but he more often trusts his gut instinct in battle.
* LameComeback: In episode 2 when the team in a makeshift Shockbot is confronted by a real Shockbot.
--> '''Shockbot''': You are in a restricted area.
--> '''Mike''': (in a fake robot monotone) Uh, no, it is you who are in a restricted area.
* LightningBruiser: And how!
* MagneticHero: Pointed out by [[spoiler:The Duke]] in "Vega." Mike is charismatic, people like him, and he'd have the whole of Motorcity rallying behind him when he goes to take Kane down.
* MeaningfulName: Mike ''Chilton''.
* MixedAncestry
* MookFaceTurn: About one year prior to the beginning of the series, or more specifically "Vendetta".
* NiceGuy: Despite being a total adrenaline junkie, Mike is also very selfless, especially towards his friends.
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: Even if it means risking his own skin.
* [[AnOddPlaceToSleep Odd Place To Sleep]]: On the hood of his car.
* PapaWolf: As evident in "The Duke of Detroit".
* RedOniBlueOni: Mike with... pretty much everyone who is not Texas.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Manly Man to Chuck's Sensitive Guy, but this is actually an aversion; Mike is actually pretty sensitive and the TeamMom.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Chuck and Claire. Possibly for Tennie and Dutch.
* TeamMom: A very rare occasion in which the teen action hero of a FiveManBand is this. He looks out for the other Burners in a near-parental manner, while still being able to talk with them as a friend.
* [[TokenGoodTeammate Token Good Leader]]: Easily the nicest gang leader in Motorcity.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Crosses into this in episode 2 when faced with Kane's H.O.U.N.D.s. He chooses to use the power core (which has the potential to nuke all of Michigan) to charge his weapons despite continued protest from Dr. Hudson and his teammates. He refrains from triggering it, however, once he sees that even without activating it, the core could level the ground just by charging up.
* WideEyedIdealist: He genuinely wants to help Motorcity ''and'' the innocents in Deluxe and fully believes that he can, though he sorely lacks the foresight needed to make things work out long-term.
* WithMyHandsTied: Mike manages to wipe the floor with a cadre of Kane goons, while his hands are tied behind his back. With a little unwitting help from [[DumbMuscle Tooley.]] Also, he beat up some robots with Chuck tied to his back.
** And again during "A Better Tomorrow". Handily trashing [[spoiler:Red]] while bound to the wall.
* YoungerThanTheyLook

!!Julie Kane
->''Voiced by: Creator/KateMicucci''

Julie is the Burners' inside woman. Posing as an intern at [=KaneCo=] to gain information, her connections to Deluxe run deeper than that--unbeknownst to all but a select few, she's Kane's daughter. This causes much internal conflict, as she fights for the Burners' cause but also loves her father, and hates to see the monstrous things he does.

%%* ActionGirl
%%* AffectionateNickname Jules.
* BadassAdorable: Most definitely badass, but Julie is still a cute, slightly insecure teenage girl.
%%* BattleBoomerang: Her WeaponOfChoice.
%%** LaserBlade
%%* BrakeAngrily: In "Ride The Lightning" and "Mayhem Night".
%%* ChildhoodFriends: With Claire.
%%* CombatStilettos
* ConflictingLoyalty: She believes in the Burners' cause more than Kane's, but still loves her father and wants to be a worthy successor to him.
* DaddysGirl: Of a sense. It's clear that Kane trusts her and adores her more than anyone else, but he also keeps her in the dark and makes her connection to him known to an extremely limited number of people.
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Off the Rack".
* DeadpanSnarker
* EmbarrassingNickname: "Miss Deluxe," with a more sobering touch than most typical examples.
* GuileHeroine: Manipulation is one of her prime skills, either against her father or the Amazons.
* HartmanHips
* HiddenDepths: While she seems like the typical "girl" of the team, she probably has the most important role in the story besides Mike and Kane, is a pretty skillful manipulator, and according to Claire, wasn't as much of a tomboy as she is now.
%% She does not have a Hime Cut. The hairstyle is three-lengths and requires other characteristics. Do not add it.
* IAmNotMyFather
* KindheartedCatLover
* TheLancer
* LonelyRichKid: There are only three people who are even aware that Kane is her father; it's not hard to think that even with Claire, Julie's childhood must have been pretty sad.
* MasterOfIllusion: By utilizing [=KaneCo=]'s own snazzy hologram technology.
** {{Invisibility}}
** MesACrowd: One of Julie's best tricks, which she can make various copies of herself, her car (and in "Ride the Lightning", other cars such as Stronghorn), as well as some handy disguises.
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter
* MissingMom: So far there's been no mention of Julie's mother.
** The [[http://peopleofmotorcity.tumblr.com People of Motorcity]] Tumblr finally revealed [[spoiler:she died when Julie was an infant]].
* NameOfCain: Considering her father, it comes with the territory.
%%* NiceShoes
* TheNotLoveInterest: Rather unusual for the sole girl member of the FiveManBand. She and Mike hold a deep trust in each other, but neither of them has overtly expressed mutual attraction, and her ShipTease moments with Texas are usually played for laughs.
%%* OneOfTheBoys
* OnlySaneMan: She does this by balancing out the other Burners' more volatile traits, being a skilled, level-headed strategist and mediator rather than a combat player or technician.
%%* PluckyGirl
%%* PuppyDogEyes: Uses them on her father from time to time.
%%* RapunzelHair
* RebelliousPrincess: Daughter of Detroit Deluxe's corporate dictator and a fearless double agent.
%%* RedheadInGreen
%%* ShesGotLegs
%%* TheSmurfettePrinciple
* SpoiledSweet: The daughter of the most powerful man in Detroit, but knows that his oppression of other people is wrong and tries to reason with him to see this.
%%* TheStrategist
%%* {{Tomboy}}
%%** TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The former to her friend Claire.
%%* TheUglyGuysHotDaughter

->''Voiced by: Nate Torrence''

Chuck is Mike's closest friend, almost always at his side. He generally rides shotgun alongside Mike, and is a computer hacker and technical expert. He's also terrified of almost everything the Burners do. Despite this, he's risked his neck for his friends more than once, and it's clear peaceful days without Kane would be his fondest desire. He also roleplays on weekends and has an unrequited crush on Claire.

* {{Adorkable}}: He [=LARP=]s during the weekends. What other evidence do you need?
** His love for algebra.
* AffectionateNickname[=/=]InSeriesNickname: Chuckles.
* BigEater
** AndADietCoke: Does this in "The Duke of Detroit."
* BlindingBangs: Unlike most examples though, his eyes are often shown, and full shots of his face are rare but not terribly so.
* BratsWithSlingshots: Uses one early in "Texas-ify It" and in "Ride of the Fantasy Vans" to name a few.
** [[ArmCannon Wrist Cannon]]
** RetractableWeapon
* TheChick: The not so common male example.
** Also serves as one of two [[TheSmartGuy Smart Guys]] in terms of [[HollywoodHacking tech savviness]].
* CowardlyLion: He can rival [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo Shaggy]] in sheer wimpiness, but he's never backed down from taking part with the Burners unless he truly disagrees with Mike.
** He exaggerates it to the point where he even has a phobia of [[spoiler:'''kittens''']].
* DarkerAndEdgier: Becomes this in "Fearless". [[spoiler: [[StatusQuoIsGod It doesn't last long.]]]]
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Fearless", "Blond Thunder", "Ride of the Fantasy Vans"...
* DoggedNiceGuy: For Claire.
* DumbBlonde: Inverted, Chuck is probably the smartest in the group, by a longshot.
* FriendToAllChildren: In "Blonde Thunder".
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: He's the most innocent of the crew and is TheChick in the FiveManBand.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Mike to an extreme degree.
* HollywoodHacking
* LovableNerd
* NonActionGuy
* PostKissCatatonia: In [[spoiler: "Mayhem Night."]]
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Get used to hearing Chuck screaming.
-->'''Kaia''': Is everyone okay? I thought I heard a lady screaming.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Mike's Manly Man, but actually somewhat averted.
* TokenWhite
* TookALevelInBadass: Tried to do this with the Kane Booster, although that... [[FantasticDrug didn't]] [[RedEyesTakeWarning work]] [[TheBerserker out]]. Fully does so on his own terms by "Ride of the Fantasy Vans."
* YouthfulFreckles

!!Dutch Gordy
-->''Voiced by: Kel Mitchell''

Dutch Gordy is the Burners' mechanical expert. Alongside ROTH, he patches up the Burners' cars and other equipment. Dutch is also a talented artist, particularly with graffiti. He left Deluxe when he was persecuted for making art, leaving behind his mother, father, and younger brother Dar.

* {{Adorkable}}: Especially when around Tennie.
* BadassBookworm: Confirmed in "Going Dutch," but practically solidified in "Vega" [[spoiler:where he bravely steps up to the plate after Mike gets captured.]]
* BigBrotherInstinct: [[spoiler:Refuses to let his little brother Dar join the Burners, knowing that it would endanger their family.]]
* BlackAndNerdy
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Subverted twice, you read me, twice.
* CoolMask: His respirator.
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Going Dutch". He and his family get a bit of this again in "Reunion."
* DeadpanSnarker
* FunnyAfro
* GadgeteerGenius
* HiddenDepths: Although he's the team's mechanic, Dutch is also an accomplished graffiti artist. In "Going Dutch" it's revealed that [[spoiler: he actually came to Motorcity because he was persecuted for making art.]]
* PapaWolf: Towards R.O.T.H.
* PostKissCatatonia: After [[spoiler: Tennie gives him a kiss on the cheek in "Fearless."]]
* ShorterMeansSmarter: Inverted. Dutch is the tallest of the Burners.
* TheSmartGuy: For mechanical work.
* SwissArmyWeapon: His WeaponOfChoice
** EpicFlail
** FireBreathingWeapon: Actually a welding torch.
** FrickinLaserBeams
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Texas.

->''Voiced by: Creator/JessHarnell''

Texas is the coolest, strongest, most awesome guy you'll ever meet--according to himself. Definitely strong, but very out there, Texas acts as the muscle of the Burners, as well as comic relief. He loves action movies and has a vivid imagination, and sometimes even his craziest fantasies have helped the Burners out--or, at the very least, grounded them in reality.

* AccidentalMisnaming: Frequently does this to Julie. Also called R.O.T.H. "Ralph."
* AmazonChaser: It's implied that Texas is drawn to powerful women. He fanboys over Kaia in "Texas-ify It" and is in awe of Julie after seeing her kick drone butt in "Off The Rack".
* AsianAirhead: A rare male example.
* AnAxeToGrind: Uses one in "Ride the Fantasy Vans".
* [[BigDamnHeroes Big Damn Hero]]: [[SelfServingMemory He thinks he is one,]] but he's actually [[BelievingTheirOwnLies delusional]] and has a huge ego.
* BigEater: Seems to be becoming this as of recently.
* TheBigGuy: Ironically subverted when comparing him to the other Burners physically. He's definitely the beefiest of them, but he's the second-shortest of the team (meaning he's shorter than ''Jacob'').
* BoisterousBruiser: His reaction to basically any situation is to punch it in the face. Even if it doesn't have a face. ''Especially'' if it doesn't have a face.
* CloudCuckoolander: Texas is... special, alright.
* CrazyPrepared: Texas has apparently put much thought into the need to fight with vomit.
-->'''Texas''': Check out my muscular neck and throat. *flexes*
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* DanceBattler: As evident in "Texas-ify It".
* DistressedDude: In "Threat Level Texas"
* TheDitz: Subverted; when the time calls for it, he can dispense healthy advice... in his own way.
--> '''Texas''': You've got to stop thinking about what you didn't do and start thinking about what you're doing to save people now. You can't change the past unless you have a time machine!
--> ''<[[{{Beat}} beat]]>''
--> '''Texas''': ''Do'' you have a time machine?
* DumbMuscle: He's not ''completely'' dumb, see GeniusDitz below.
* FatalFlaw: [[SmallNameBigEgo His larger-than-life ego.]]
* FightingWithChucks: His weapon of choice, other than GoodOldFisticuffs.
** They also shoot [[FrickinLaserBeams lasers]]. Yes, Gunchucks.
* GeniusDitz: He gives the Terras tactical advice on how to infiltrate Detroit Deluxe with the resources at their disposal. [[spoiler:However, Texas later regrets giving the Terras said advice after they begin attacking innocent civilians.]]
* TheGlomp: He does this to [[spoiler: Julie at the end of "Off the Rack."]]
* HotBlooded
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Can be quite rude, immature, and oblivious (especially in his treatment toward Chuck, Dutch and R.O.T.H.), but there's no denying that he stands for what's right.
* LeaderWannabe
* LeeroyJenkins: Not even an adrenaline junkie like Mike can keep up with him.
* LovableJock
* ManChild
* MemeticBadass: Becomes one in-universe with "Threat Level Texas": Convincing Tooley that he is an ultra-badass through the use of UnreliableNarrator, and then convincing several other soldiers through his escape; they begin to sprout ideas that he teleported himself in and ripped a drone apart with his mind.
* TheMovieBuff: He's an avid fan of action flicks.
* MrImagination: Is prone to wild flights of fancy when describing his ideas ("I have a gun that shoots a snake!").
* NiceHat
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Maybe. According to a [[http://peopleofmotorcity.tumblr.com/post/58216532641 joke page]] from the series bible, his full name is [[spoiler: Randal Takenuchi.]] Whether or not ''that'' part is a joke is unknown.
* RealMenWearPink: His personality verges on TestosteronePoisoning and his color scheme is [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20121021025232/motorcitydisneyxd/images/b/b3/Texas_Turnaround.jpg black and dark pink.]] It can be difficult to notice without red objects in proximity.
* SelfServingMemory: In "Threat Level: Texas," unless you believe he was intentionally bluffing.
* ShipTease: With [[spoiler: Julie. "Threat Level: Texas" more or less confirms he has a crush on her and naturally assumes she admires the hell out of him.]]
* SmallNameBigEgo
* SpinAttack: The Texas Twister.
* SweetTooth: To a point where he [[spoiler: frequently ends up doing himself harm, as seen "Mayhem Night."]]
* ThirdPersonPerson
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Muscle Mulch.
* UnreliableNarrator: Resulting in the ridiculously self-glorifying RecapEpisode "Threat Level: Texas."
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Dutch.

->''Voiced by: Creator/BrianDoyleMurray''

Jacob is the Burners' mentor and owner of their garage and main hangout. Years ago, he was Kane's partner, and helped create much of the technology in Detroit Deluxe. It's unclear when Jacob learned of Kane's megalomania, but it drove him down to Motorcity, where he now serves as a voice of wisdom and experience for the Burners.

* BadassBeard
* BadassGrandpa: And if they had kept one of the show's early concepts, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen he would have been Mike's grandfather]].
* BigDamnHeroes: Practically his default role other than being the TeamDad.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: Motor oil, to be precise.
* CoolOldGuy
* {{Expy}}: Of Goat from ''WesternAnimation/{{Downtown}}''.
* GadgeteerGenius: Invented the Utility Bots.
* HiddenDepths: Looks like an old beatnik and manages a simple grocery store, when he's a former lead scientist of [=KaneCo=].
* IntergenerationalFriendship: He speaks with the Burners on a near-equal plane.
* LethalChef: Of a sense. He does his best to grow food with the limited natural resources in Motorcity, but his organic recipes are less than appreciated by the kids, okra mayonnaise muffins being one very strange exception for Chuck. Texas seems to enjoy his cooking in general.
* TheMentor
* SimpleStaff
* TeamDad
* WeUsedToBeFriends: With Kane.


R.O.T.H. is a repair drone and sidekick to the Burners who was reprogrammed from one of Kane's robots. While cowardly, he's loyal and hardworking, and often helps Dutch with modifying the Burners' cars.

* BadassAdorable: Despite showing some cowardly tendencies and his ButtMonkey status, R.O.T.H. has shown himself to be capable in episodes like "Going Dutch," "Vendetta," and "The Robo-Roundup."
* ButtMonkey
* CowardlyLion
* CuteMachines: Oh ''yes.'' He's basically a puppy dog in the form of a sentient graffiti-colored box.
* RobotBuddy: Illustrated most prominently in "The Robo-Roundup."
* TeamPet


!!Abraham Kane
->''Voiced by: Creator/MarkHamill''

The head honcho of Detroit Deluxe, and primary adversary of Mike and the Burners. Kane runs Deluxe with an iron fist, outlawing any sort of personal freedom in the name of safety and security. He does, however, have one person he truly cares about, his daughter Julie.

* AllBikersAreHellsAngels: Has shades of this--the leathers and bike are missing but the hair, beard, and mannerisms fit to a T.
* ArchnemesisDad: To Julie, somewhat of an adoptive father to Mike.
%%* BadassBeard
* BadassDriver: [[spoiler: Despite his hatred of cars, Kane still knows how to drive, and drive well, posing as an enemy spy, and sabatoging his own drones to make a convincing image. This may have been foreshadowed in "Off the Rack" when he skillfully controls Julie's Safety Suit to drive Mutt around.]]
* BadBoss: Kane often puts his city and his citizens in danger all in the name of capturing the Burners and any employees who voice grievances over the danger his plans place towards the city are brutally beaten by Tooley under Kane's orders out of sheer annoyance.
* BaldOfEvil
* BeardOfEvil
* BigBad
* BigOlEyebrows[=/=]EvilEyebrows
* BrokenPedestal: To Mike.
* CarpetOfVirility
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: The fact that this guy has an entire army dedicated to his company's interests is more than enough proof.
* DevilInPlainSight
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Julie's pretty much the only person he shows any affection towards, even if he's certainly not the best dad in the world. For Mike, see LikeASonToMe below.
** [[spoiler:Very evident when Mike pretends to take her hostage. Evil he may be, he still loves his kid, and doesn't seem to enjoy having to finish off who he saw as his other kid either.]]
* EvilRedhead
* FieryRedhead
* GeniusBruiser: He out-hacks Chuck early in "Reunion."
* [[IWantThemAlive I Want Him Alive]]: His mooks could have easily killed Mike several times, but haven't.
** [[spoiler:Subverted during "Vega". He makes it clear that with Mike captured, his [[NeverSayDie termination]] is imminent. And drops him to what he assumes is his death during "A Better Tomorrow." Even then, their past relationship suggests that he's not too happy about having to kill him.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: Tooley may be taller than him but he's definitely beefier.
* LargeHam
* LightIsNotGood
* LikeASonToMe: He genuinely seemed proud of Mike when he worked for him, and took his MookFaceTurn rather hard.
** Says it outright during "A Better Tomorrow".
* ManInWhite: Wears the most white in his outfit outside [=KaneCo=] scientists.
* ManipulativeBastard: Despite looking less than trustworthy, Kane is quite the smooth-talker.
* MrFanservice: If you've seen the sunglasses commercial you can't deny it.
* NameOfCain
** To [[PunnyName complete the picture]], Abe = [[CainAndAbel Abel]].
* PapaWolf
* RagsToRiches: [[AllThereInTheManual According to the Motorcity "bible"]]
* SurroundedByIdiots: PlayedWith: Tooley is his right hand man, and frequently screws things up with his stupidity, while [[spoiler: Red]] accomplishes missions with more success. His interactions with the scientists usually end with Kane angry through either the scientist's invention failing, or through Kane's own shortsightedness destroying chances of victory. A conversation with a MookLieutenant ended with Kane yelling at him because the Mook questioned the safety of Kane's plan, which was putting people in danger.
* TwitchyEye: About once an episode. Either by the Burners or Tooley's own stupidity.
* [[spoiler:VillainTeamUp: With The Duke to capture Mike.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Abraham Kane is popular enough in Deluxe that Deluxians can buy a variety of creepy posters featuring Kane to decorate their walls.
** Though also played with, some people like and trust Kane, others seem dreary with life in Detroit Deluxe, Kane mentions that certain citizens hate him and defect, with one scientist telling him that they are a minority.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Despite his desire to destroy the Burners and rule all of Motor City, Kane honestly believes he is doing it for everyone's best interests. He just can't stand to have anything outside of his direct control.

->''Voiced by: Jim Breuer''

Kane's rather daft right hand man. Tooley has the temperament and intelligence of a guard dog--loyal to Kane no matter what, but dumb as a post. He has an unrequited crush on Julie.

* BerserkButton: He gets surprisingly violent at people speaking ill of Kane--sadly, [[TooDumbToLive he doesn't get any smarter.]]
* TheBrute: While he's supposedly Kane's right hand man, Kane uses him more for his muscle and never really gives him any authority TheDragon would need. This becomes especially apparent when Red is introduced and becomes a much more of a Dragon to Kane whilst Tooley is just there to break things.
* TheDitz: His mannerisms and intelligence level are more on par with a guard dog's.
-->'''Kane:''' [[SurroundedByIdiots You are a thick-skulled dimwit of a manchild, Tooley]]... but loyal!
* TheDragon: More so at the start of the series wherein Kane has him as his 2nd In Command and finds him loyal enough to impart certain tasks and offensives agains the Burners. When Red joins up Tooley is demoted to TheBrute.
* DumbMuscle: Extra emphasis on the dumb part...
* EvilCounterpart: To Texas; however Texas has [[GeniusDitz shown some intelligence]] at times, while Tooley is outright dumb.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Appears waving off to the side of a picture of Kane and Julie in "Like Father Like Daughter".
* HopelessSuitor: To Julie.
* ManChild
* TheResenter: Showing this towards [[spoiler:Red, as Kane seems to favor him for his competence over Tooley]].
* SimpletonVoice
* TooDumbToLive: Hey, Tooley? The hunter-killer robot only ''looks'' like a dog, and it doesn't need petting.
** Also, you should learn to differentiate between a surprise party, and a [[spoiler: ZombieApocalypse!]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards Kane.

->''Voiced by: Laraine Newman''

The "queen" of the Terras, a group of Motorcity residents who lived agrarian lifestyles before their land was contaminated by Kane's toxic waste dumps. [[spoiler:As an added result their bodies were heavily mutated]], and they won't stop until all of Deluxe is gone, innocent civilians included.

* AmbiguouslyBrown
* [[spoiler:{{Butterface}}: [[NightmareFetishist Your mileage may vary.]]]]
* DarkActionGirl
* [[spoiler:ExtraEyes: a third one on her forehead, which she covers with a headband.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Mike.
* FurAndLoathing: [[spoiler: The fur on her shoulders seem to be wings.]]
* [[GreenEyes Green Eye]]
* GreenThumb: Of a more practical note, since the Terras use genetically-altered plants as weapons.
* HorseOfADifferentColor: White mutated bucks, to be precise.
* [[spoiler: ScaryTeeth]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: She and several Terras skirt around this trope while managing to look relatively family-friendly.
* VaderBreath: Just slightly, due to the gas mask.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: And unlike Mike, she and her people have no scruples when dealing with the people of Deluxe.
* [[spoiler:WingedHumanoid]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]

!!The Duke of Detroit
->''Voiced by: Dee Snider''

An uber rich, uber [[LargeHam hammy]] overlord from Motorcity. The Duke is on no side but his own, and loves being the center of attention, which often brings him into conflict with Mike and the Burners. He can't stand anyone being more popular than he is and will go to terrifying lengths to ensure he takes the number 1 spot.

* AmbiguouslyEvil: The Duke is on his own side all the time, making an enemy of the Burners for petty reasons, like them getting attention, or taking from a scrapyard that he retroactively claimed, even putting the team in danger to host a tv show. He does have some good moments, like giving up some metal to stop nano-bots, over lots of protest though, and keeping his word in a race. [[spoiler: In "Vega," he does go to more clear-cut villainy, teaming up with Kane to defeat the Burners, and getting to keep their cars, before turning on Kane, when said cars would be confiscated.]]
* BadassBeard
* BadassDriver
* BewareTheSillyOnes: His gaudy fashion sense, hammy personality, and penchant for karaoke all hide a guy who can bring some serious pain down on people.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: In the 2nd part of the finale, when Kane turns on him, he gives the cars back to the Burners and sends his guards on the attack. In the penultimate moment, he saves Mike from a falling death with Mutt.]]
* BreakoutVillain: He was supposed to only appear in 2 episodes, but was so popular he got 6, including a major part in the finale.
* CaneFu: And it's [[ShockAndAwe electrified]].
* CompositeCharacter: According to Snider, the Duke's personality is a mix of [[Music/TwistedSister himself]], Music/KidRock, Music/DavidLeeRoth, and Music/JamesBrown.
* CoolShades
* ExactWords: In "Blonde Thunder", he has Chuck race against ALL of his best drivers. When Mike says that wasn't the bet, the Duke points out that the only rule they agreed on was that Chuck had to be behind the wheel of his car during the races.
* FalseFlagOperation: [[spoiler: He had his guards attack three gangs including his own in Julie and the Amazons, and blamed it on the burners.]]
* FatherToHisMen: The Duke does seem to legitimately care for his underlings, grabbing one who is cowering and running with him during an attack. He also seems to equate doing nothing with weakness, considering the line "Get up and run you cowards!"
* FriendlyEnemy: It's a bit ambiguous exactly what side he stands on. He's willing to help the Burners in "Vendetta" but he still harbors a bit of a grudge against Mike.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: The Duke is on his own side always. This brings him in conflict with the Burners sometimes, others he just minds his own business. [[spoiler: In the season finale, he's a bad guy in part 1 and a good guy in Part 2.]]
* IGaveMyWord: In "Blonde Thunder" he doesn't try to weasel out of his side of the bet and hands over the keys of his car to Mike.
-->'''Duke''': I'm a man of my word. Ow.
* ItsAllAboutMe: He's incredibly egocentric, to the point [[spoiler:that he frames the Burners for declaring war on other Motorcity gangs just because he felt like they were getting too much attention.]]
* LargeHam: Oh, big time.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He bears resemblance to Detroit rocker Music/KidRock.
* NoNameGiven: Seriously, what is his real name?
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: When this PerpetualSmiler frowns, it is really bad news for someone, usually Mike.
* SurroundedByIdiots: In "Vega", he gives off this impression when his guards freeze up and cower when Kane bots attack, as well as one guard finding gum from No. 2 in his gun. [[spoiler:Though with them all taking up arms in the second part of the finale, this may have just been a ruse to gain the Burner's confidence.]]
** For the most part, his guards prove to be fairly effective, from the FalseFlagOperation to two random guards figuring out Mike controlling Chuck's car, and destroy the controller.
* TankGoodness: He has one. That shoots [[AbnormalAmmo limos]].
* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: In "The Duke of Detroit Presents".
* VillainTeamup: [[spoiler:With Kane. Kane gets Mike, The Duke gets the Burners' cars.]]

->''Voiced by: Eric Ladin''

A mysterious character with a grudge against Mike. Red hates [=KaneCo=], but he hates Mike even more.

%%* BadassDriver

* CoolCar
* CoolHelmet
* DeadlyDisc: His car shoots saw blades.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Doubly subverted.
* EnemyOfMyEnemy: [[spoiler:His reason for joining forces with Kane.]]
* TheFaceless
* LineOfSightName: Texas dubs him "Red", due to his new [[spoiler:[=KaneCo=]]] red armor.
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: More than Kane, [[spoiler:who's really to blame for Red's home being destroyed]], it's Mike that this guy can't stand.
* PowerFist
* PoweredArmor
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver
* SellOut: In [[spoiler: "Like Father, Like Daughter" it is revealed that he has entered into Kane's service in exchange for better weapons and armor--you know, the guy who gave the order to destroy his home.]]

[[folder:Other Motorcity Residents]]
A regular client of the Burners and the leader of the Skylarks gang, who run a motel in Motorcity.

* BadassBeard
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Usually pretty chill, well-mannered and is definitely the friendliest to the Burners out of all the other gang leaders in Motorcity, but will not hesitate to turn on them if it'll turn a profit.
* CoolShades
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Gladly does business with the Burners, then betrays them for a profit, then helps them out, with some bounty hunters, against the duke, and agrees to help them pay off their debt to the hunters, all in his debut episode.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: When the Burners are framed for attacking the gangs of Motorcity and are caught in a vulnerable position, Rayon converses with the other leaders to give them a chance to prove themselves innocent, because he believes in Mike's honesty. Though he does threaten Mike to not make him look stupid for trusting him. Later on when investigating the gangs, lots of subterfuge is used, except for Rayon's gang because Mike just walks up to him and asks if he did it.

[[folder:Other Detroit Deluxe Residents]]
->''Voiced by: Dana Davis''

Julie's friend from Detroit Deluxe, and so far the only one aware of Julie's double life. Claire is a girly girl, and while she cares for Julie, she's not too pleased with the Motorcitizens... at first. Chuck has an unrequited crush on her.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Her reaction to Chuck calling his story "cyboring."
* BlackBestFriend: To Julie.

* TheConfidant: [[RuleOfThree To Julie.]]
* FishOutOfWater: When in Motorcity, though she quickly warms up to the Amazons.
* ForeheadOfDoom
* HartmanHips
* ImprobableHairstyle: Her square hair bun. Seriously, square! With the [[HairDecorations right doodads]] to provide structure, it's not an ''impossible'' style to pull off, but it would be ridiculously high-maintenance.

->''Voiced by: Creator/JessHarnell''

A fellow Cadet from Mike's [=KaneCo=] days. He only appears in the flashbacks in "Vendetta," so not much is known about him, but his connection to Mike and the ambiguous possibility that he is Red's true identity has grabbed fan attention.

* ByTheBookCop: He's shown as a loyal Cadet, following morning protocol and even willing to arrest Mike when Kane commanded it.
* ChildSoldiers: Looks to be about Mike's age, who was 16 around the time he was a Cadet.
