A list of characters who appear in ''WesternAnimation/SilverHawks''.

!'''''The [=SilverHawks=]'''''

A team of heroic SpacePolice who defend the Limbo Galaxy from Mon*Star and his mob.
Tropes associated with all the [=SilverHawks=]:
* BadassCrew
* {{Cyborg}}: What each team member is transformed into, although the series [[NotUsingTheZWord never uses the word]].
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Of the original Silverhawks crew, neither The Copper Kidd nor Bluegrass had their real names mentioned at any point of the show. The same happened to the new Silverhawks members.
* SpacePolice

!The Original Team

These are the Silverhawks who were introduced at the beginning of the series.

!!Commander Burt Stargazer
->'''Voiced by:''' Bob [=McFadden=]

The man who issues the orders to the Silverhawks. He's also the cop who originally captured Mon*Star.
Tropes associated with Stargazer:
* BaldOfAwesome
* UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}}: His hometown.
* CoolOldGuy
* DaChief: Well, seeing as how this is basically [[SpacePolice a cop show]] InSpace, he fits the role.
* FormerTeenRebel: Or so he says. Had the nickname "Barnstorming Burt".
* MissionControl: His usual role.
* ObsoleteMentor

!!Lieutenant Johnathan Quick, "Quicksilver".
->'''Voiced by:''' Peter Newman

The field leader of the Silverhawks.
Tropes associated with Quicksilver:
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Lieutenant Johnathan Quick.
* TheDeterminator
* TheHero: Of the original FiveManBand.
* HumansAreSpecial: He believes this, and this is what makes him TheDeterminator, particularly during his battle against his EvilCounterpart Darkbird.
--> It's our human qualities that give us courage, endurance and the power to tell right from wrong!

!!Colonel Bluegrass
->'''Voiced by:''' Larry Kenney

The Silverhawks' pilot, and the only one among them who doesn't have wing attachments.
Tropes associated with Bluegrass:
* AcePilot: Between the Bushwacker and Plugger varieties.
* ColonelBadass.
* TheDeepSouth: He talks like [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats1985 Lion-O]] with a Southern accent.
* ICallItVera: He calls his guitar Hot Licks.
* InstrumentOfMurder: Hot Licks is a heroic example.
* TheLancer
* NiceHat: He always wears a cowboy hat.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname

!!Sergeants Emily "Steelheart" Hart and Will "Steelwill" Hart
[[caption-width-right:331:Left to right: Steelwill and Steelheart]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Maggie Wheeler (Steelheart) and Bob [=McFadden=] (Steelwill)

A brother and sister team of heroes who join the Silverhawks.
Tropes associated with Steelheart and Steelwill:
* AmazonianBeauty: Of the two [[TheSmurfettePrinciple Smurfettes]] on the cast (the other being Melodia), Steelheart is easily the stronger-looking (of athletic design). We get a nice MaleGaze pan of her on the opening sequence to showcase this.
* ActionGirl: Steelheart.
* TheBigGuy: Steelwill.
* BrotherSisterTeam: They're both {{Gadgeteer Genius}}es who work together all the time...and then punch down walls together all the time. They even suffered heart failures at the same time, requiring them to get fitted with bionic replacements prior to the Silverhawk assignment.
* GadgeteerGenius: Both of them, as stated above.
* GeniusBruiser: Super-strong football fans, and the team's tech specialists.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Steelheart is the only female Silverhawk.
* SuperStrength: The strongest members of the Silverhawks team, in physical terms.
* TwinTelepathy: This is why their hearts failed simultaneously during the mechanization sequence in the pilot. Used at least once afterwards, but not much more than that.

!!The Copper Kidd
->'''Voiced by:''' Pete Cannarozzi

The Silverhawks' alien member. He communicates by taking high-pitched noises instead of speaking.
Tropes associated with The Copper Kidd:
* CuteMute: Well, not ''mute'' exactly; his speech comes out as whistles, but they're intelligible enough to be understood in-universe (and by viewers with keen ears).
* DeadlyDisc: In addition to the usual Silverhawk loadout, he has a pair of throwing discs which he keeps on his hips.
* HeroicMime: Comes from a [[PlanetOfHats planet of them]] no less.
* TheUnintelligible: Had a computerized voicebox installed during his cybernetic conversion, but it is still heavy synthesized
* PointyEars
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: He has two razor-edged discs implanted on his hips that he uses this way in battle.
* TheSmartGuy
* TokenNonhuman: Hails from "The Planet of the Mimes", and is functionally human save for facial markings and skin coloration reminiscent of a clown, voicelessness, and a pronounced mischievous streak.
* TheTropeKid
* TheVoiceless

! The Reinforcements

These are SixthRanger Silverhawks who were introduced midway through the series, after the original team had been established. None of them appear in the TitleSequence.

->'''Voiced by:''' Adolph Caesar, Doug Preis

A professional magician and illusionist with a PowerCrystal embedded in his forehead. He uses his abilities to confuse and misdirect Mon*Star's gang.
Tropes associated with Hotwing:
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It's not always clear if Hotwing really has mystical powers or is just a very skilled illusionist.
* TheOtherDarrin: Adolph Caesar died during production, so Doug Preis was brought in to voice Hotwing's later appearances.
* PointyEars
* PowerCrystal
* TokenMinority: He was the only African-American character in the show.

->'''Voiced by:''' Peter Newman (possibly)

A Silverhawk from (even farther in) TheFuture who occasionally travels back in time to save the main cast.
Tropes associated with Flashback:
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Since he's from the Silverhawks' future, he's even more powerful than they are--except for Steelwill, whose strength matches his.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: He does this at least twice.
* TimeTravel: His shtick. He's able to manipulate time to his own advantage.

->'''Voiced by:''' Bob [=McFadden=]

Condor is a retired Silverhawk who's working as a private eye when his old friend Stargazer calls him back to active duty. His tech is outmoded, but his experience makes up for it.
Tropes associated with Condor:
* BadassGrandpa
* CoolOldGuy
* {{Jetpack}}: He has one instead of the permanently attached wings most modern Silverhawks use.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His voice is an imitation of Creator/HumphreyBogart.
* PrivateDetective
* RetiredBadass

->'''Voiced by:''' Larry Kenney (probably)

Moonstryker is a cocky young Silverhawk whose technology is a little more advanced than his teammates'. He uses a spinning turbine attached to his waist to fly.
Tropes associated with Moonstryker:
* DeadpanSnarker
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: His turbine.
* FriendlySniper: He's a crack shot with his built-in lasers.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* SurferDude: His personality.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: His deliberately misspelled name.

!'''''Mon*Star's Mob'''''

->'''Voiced by:''' Earl Hammond

The leader of the mob, and arch-enemy of the Silverhawks and of Commander Stargazer in particular.
Tropes associated with Mon*Star:
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull: A villainous variant. "Moon Star of Limbo! Give me the might - the muscle - the menace - of MON*STAR!"
* TheDreaded
* EyepatchOfPower: Wears one over his left eye in his normal form. It has a six-pointed star emblem that becomes part of his facial markings in his transformed state.
* EyeBeam: In his transformed state, his left eye becomes capable of firing bolts of star-shaped energy that can either paralyze a target or transform his squid-mount, Skyrunner, into its armored form.
* GenreSavvy: He doesn't underestimate his foes. In "Switch", when all of the Silverhawks except Copper Kid are imprisoned, he tells his mob that as long as Kid is around, they can still lose. He's right.
* ItsPersonal: Between Mon*Star and Stargazer, who originally captured him.
* {{Lunacy}}: The light of the Moon Star of Limbo is what gives him his strength and ability to transform.
* OneWingedAngel
* OrcusOnHisThrone: In later episodes he stops getting actively involved in his own plots in any way. With very few exceptions, he just gives orders and doesn't actually do anything. Possibly done as a way to avoid further VillainDecay, because on the rare times when he did do something himself, he got beaten easily - e.g, episode 64, "Zeek's Power", where Condor defeats Mon*Star in a single hit.
* PoweredArmor: Wears this in his transformed state. It gives him flight abilities and a degree of boosted strength and endurance, as well as the EyeBeam ability above.
* RedBaron: Mon*Star, the Planet-Master.
* SpikesOfVillainy
* VocalEvolution: His voice started out very deep and growly, but over the course of the series slowly turned into a perfect imitation of [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats1985 Vultureman's screech]], though it also partway reverted in the later episodes. (Earl Hammond voiced both characters). More jarring in that his transformation phrase always used the original deep-voiced clip.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting

->'''Voiced by:''' Bob [=McFadden=]

Mon*Star's personal assistant, who activates the machinery for his boss's transformations with the Moonstar of Limbo.
Tropes associated with Yes-Man:
* BeleagueredAssistant
* TheRenfield
* SnakePeople
* TookALevelInBadass: A temporary variant. In "No More Mr. Nice Guy", he stepped into the Transformation Chamber with Mon*Star, which caused no physical transformation, but boosted his intellect and confidence to such a degree that he was running roughshod over the Silverhawks and the rest of Mon*Star's mob. The boost wore off on its own, however, and he was [[NeverRecycleYourSchemes never allowed to use it again]] [[JustifiedTrope (because he also started gunning for Mon*Star's position)]].
* YesMan: Well, if his very name didn't clue you in already...

->'''Voiced by:''' Bob [=McFadden=]

The Mob's weapons specialist.
Tropes associated with Hardware:
* BagOfHolding: The over-sized knapsack on his back carries a wide assortment of weapons and tools.
* [[BarefootCartoonAnimal Barefoot Cartoon Alien]]
* GadgeteerGenius
* GatlingGood: One of his many weapons is a laser Gatling cannon for melee combat.
* PointyEars

->'''Voiced by:''' Maggie Wheeler

The only female member of the Mob, she uses her trademark keytar weapon to create devastating shockwaves.
Tropes associated with Melodia:
* DarkActionGirl
* DistaffCounterpart: To Bluegrass.
* EvilCounterpart: To Bluegrass, again. Like him, Melodia attacks using a musical instrument that shoots lasers shaped like music staves (plural of "staff"). In her case, she uses a keytar [[note]]A musical keyboard designed to be held like a guitar, and one of the iconic musical instruments of synthpop bands in TheEighties. [[http://www.roland.com Roland]] is the only company that still makes them (the AX-SYNTH is their flagship model, along with the AX-9 and out-of-production AX-7)[[/note]], whereas Bluegrass uses a guitar.
* InstrumentOfMurder: Melodia's keytar.
* SinisterShades: The frame is shaped like a musical note, even!
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She is the only female member of the mob.
* WickedWitch: Well, she's not quite one per se. However, the way she talks is a cross between this and the ValleyGirl accent. She also laughs like a Wicked Witch (and also acts like one...).
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]: Two different shades of green, at that.

->'''Voiced by:''' Doug Preis

A member of the Mob who uses a magical tuning fork to create devastating weather effects, usually lightning or tornadoes.
Tropes associated with Windhammer:
* [[BarefootCartoonAnimal Barefoot Cartoon Alien]]
* BlowYouAway
* TheBrute
* PointyEars
* ShockAndAwe
* WeatherControlMachine: His tuning fork.

->'''Voiced by:''' Doug Preis

The Mob's resident master of disguise and infiltration expert.
Tropes associated with Molec-U-Lar:
* MasterOfDisguise
* RoboSpeak: The level of inflection varied from episode to episode, but in his true form he always spoke with robotic stiffness.
* TheShadowKnows: Molec-U-Lar's disguises have one flaw...
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: He can maintain a given form for as long as he needs, and can even transform into weapons.


A sentient robotic member of the Mob, outfitted with numerous saw-blades.
Tropes associated with Buzz-Saw:
* AbsurdlySharpBlade
* ChainsawGood
* KillerRobot

->'''Voiced by:''' Larry Kenney

The Mob's money-man, he runs the [[BadGuyBar Starship Casino]] on their behalf.
Tropes associated with Poker-Face:
* ManOfWealthAndTaste
* SharpDressedMan: He always wears a tuxedo.
* SinisterShades
* VillainousWidowsPeak
* WickedCultured

!!Mumbo Jumbo
->'''Voiced by:''' Peter Newman

The Mob's resident strong-man with the head of a bull.
Tropes associated with Mumbo Jumbo:
* TheBrute
* DumbMuscle
* TheJuggernaut: In terms of raw power, only the Steel-twins can take him on head-on.
* ALoadOfBull
* TheUnintelligible: He mostly talks in grunts and roars, but others can at least understand him.

->'''Voiced by:''' Larry Kenney

The youngest member of the Mob at age 14, he has the ability to stop time for one Limbo-minute.
Tropes associated with Timestopper:
* EvilRedhead
* ExplosiveOverclocking: If Timestopper doesn't un-freeze time before the Limbo-minute limit is up, his time-piece will explode.
* FingerlessGloves: Wears one on his right hand.
* {{Jetpack}}
* TeenGenius
* TeensAreMonsters
* TimeStandsStill: His keynote ability, activated through a time-piece worn on his chest. He's also able to determine whoever he wants to be able to move within the frozen time (so he can freeze the Silverhawks while the other members of the Mob remain unaffected).
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He's afraid of the dark. Yes, really. This is also his WeaksauceWeakness, since he can't use his powers in complete darkness.

!!Zero the Memory Thief
->'''Voiced by:''' Peter Newman

An unsavory character who worked with the mob on occasion. Zero could [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin drain memories of both living beings and computers]] which would be stored on tapes worn on his chest.
Tropes associated with Zero the Memory Thief:
* EasyAmnesia: Draining memories was easy; Zero would point his wand, pull out his target's memory and upload the memory data to his memory tapes. His victims couldn't remember anything afterwards.
* MeaningfulName
* MemoryWipingCrew: A one-man example of this trope.
* TheSixthRanger: Was not a regular member of Mon*Star's mob, only showing up sometimes
* TransferableMemory: His entire gimmick, if you didn't guess already.
