[[folder:The SWAT Kats]]

[[caption-width-right:350:Razor and T-Bone]]
[[caption-width-right:350:Jake Clawson and Chance Furlong]]

The show's eponymous heroes. Jake Clawson and Chance Furlong, were Enforcers until an, er, ''misunderstanding'' with Commander Feral got them kicked off the force and demoted to garage mechanics. However, they used the military salvage that's regularly dropped off at Jake & Chance's Garage to become Razor and T-Bone, aka the SWAT Kats--two high-tech heroes who defend [=MegaKat=] City from an endless parade of super villains, AliensAndMonsters.
Tropes associated with both SWAT Kats:
* AbnormalAmmo: Let's see, they use missiles with functions such as electric shocks (Megavolt/Scrambler), sonic emitters (Banshee), wire clippers (Wire-Clipper), capture nets (Octopus, Spider), drills (Drop-Tops, Moles, Drill-Bits, Cookie Cutters), and buzz saws (Buzzsaws, Groundhogs, Shredders, Slicers). And who could forget the cement-shooting machine guns?
%%* AnimalSuperhero
* BadassNormal: They have no special powers, just their brains, guts and technology.
%%* {{Badbutt}}
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: In their pilot suits.
%%* BigGuyLittleGuy
* BlankWhiteEyes: In their SWAT Kats outfits.
* CoolHelmet: Their helmets are stylish.
* CoolPlane: The [=TurboKat=], which they built out of scrap metal and spare parts.
* DestructiveSavior: For all the good they do, they cause a lot of damage while fighting their enemies.
%%* {{Determinator}}
* DistressedDude: They've both been captured and tied up by the villains here and there.
* FingerlessGloves: Both SWAT Kats wear them.
%%* HeterosexualLifePartners
* IrislessEyeMaskOfMystery: Jake Clawson and Chance Furlong have normal irises while working in Megakat City's scrapyard. However, when villains threaten [=MegaKat=] City, they wear bandannas tied around the tops of their heads that make their eyes seem irisless, an understandable precaution to prevent Commander Feral or any of his Enforcers from recognizing them.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: You can pretty much count the number of times their real names have been used on one hand.
%%* SuperHero
* ThoseTwoGuys: They stick together like all the best duos should.

[[WMG:T-Bone, aka Chance Furlong]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/CharlieAdler

This fearless air ace is the best--and toughest--pilot in the sky. T-Bone's flying and fighting skills make him "a criminal's worst nightmare" in the air or on the ground.
Tropes associated with T-Bone:
%%* AcePilot
%%* TheBigGuy
%%* BoisterousBruiser
* CompressedVice: He has a few phobias that are introduced in an episode and then never come up again:
** His fear of insects in "The Ci-Kat-A." Never before mentioned, and never comes up after the episode. Weirder still, nothing is done with it in the story - situations you'd think they were setting the phobic T-Bone up for (being cocooned and later snatched out of the Turbokat by the Ci-Kat-A) involve Razor, instead, and T-Bone never really needs to face, or overcome, his fear.
** His fear of swimming in "Mutation City." He does overcome this, although it never gets mentioned again. Jake, at least, was unaware of this phobia and an explanation is offered for why it's never come up before, because Chance simply never talked about it out of embarrassment.
* DatingCatwoman: In "Cry Turmoil", T-Bone is genuinely attracted to Turmoil ("She's kind of cool, in a nasty sort of way"), but his duty to stop her is clear.
* DistressedDude: In "Night of the Dark Kat," he and Razor get captured and tied up.
%%* FakeDefector: In "Cry Turmoil".
* GeniusBruiser: He's really strong, and the best pilot anywhere.
%%* TheHero
* ManChild: T-Bone is shown enjoying ''Scaredy Kat'' cartoons (in numerous episodes) and reading the comic book ''Kat Kommandoes'' (in "A Bright and Shiny Future"). He shows disdain for more adult humor like "The David Litterbin Show."
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Razor's blue.
* SuperDrowningSkills: He can't swim, and stubbornly refused to learn how to, even when it would save his life. He ends up learning to save Razor from drowning near the end of "Mutation City."

[[WMG:Razor, aka Jake Clawson]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Barry Gordon

The SWAT Kats' "High Tech Edge", Razor is an inventor who creates the team's vehicles and weapons. An effective fighter, Razor is also a "sure shot" who can nail the most elusive criminal with the [=TurboKat=]'s missiles, which contain such gimmicks as circular saws, drill bits and capture nets.
Tropes associated with Razor:
* AllThereInTheManual: Jake's surname, Clawson, is never mentioned once in the entire series.
%%* BadassBookworm
* CatchPhrase: "Bingo!", which he often shouts when his missiles connect.
* CompressedVice: His tendency to cheat in his competitions with T-Bone. It only is shown in "The Wrath of Dark Kat."
* DistressedDude: In "Night of the Dark Kat," he and T-Bone get captured and tied up. Later in "Cry Turmoil" he is put into manacles.
%%* GadgeteerGenius
%%* TheLancer
* ImprobableAimingSkills: He's constantly stated to be the best shot of the two.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone[=/=]TenMinuteRetirement: In "Razor's Edge", after he accidentally injures an elderly couple. [[spoiler:Or so he thinks--it turns out to be another of Dark Kat's {{Evil Plan}}s.]]
* ObliviousToLove: Is almost completely oblivious to Callie's feelings towards him.
* TheSmartGuy

[[folder:Megakat City Government and Law Enforcement]]
[[WMG:Mayor Manx]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JimCummings

The InNameOnly leader of Megakat City, an old-fashioned pol who sounds like Creator/WCFields with an Irish accent. He's cowardly and slightly corrupt, he wears an unconvincing toupee, and he puts at least as much effort into his golf game as running the city, but he's basically a likable comic relief character... usually.
Tropes associated with Mayor Manx:
* {{Angrish}}: Whenever he's angry.
** InelegantBlubbering: Whenever he's scared.
* DodgyToupee: It doesn't even match what remaining hair he's got left, and its constantly flying off is a frequent RunningGag.
* DistressedDude: Seems to be his only real function in the show from a plot standpoint much of the time.
* LastNameBasis: Mayor Manx's first name is never revealed.
* LovableCoward: When danger gets too close, you can always find him... running and hiding.
** DirtyCoward: The lovable part is completely thrown out the window in "The Giant Bacteria", when he and Callie are fleeing the titular monster and a helicopter shows to lift them to safety. Callie reaches the rope ladder first and barely even begins to climb when Manx actually shoves her off so he can climb first.
* MayorPain: Of the Incompetent variety.
* OfficeGolf: Unless he's at the course.
* OnlyICanKillHim: [[spoiler:In "The Ghost Pilot", he learns that since he's a descendant of war hero the Blue Manx, he's the only one who can destroy the ghost of Red Lynx. He doesn't particularly want to and at first is happy to let the Enforcers or SWAT Kats handle it instead, it's just how the rules governing this kind of thing work.]]
* {{Scotireland}}: His accents is sometimes Scottish and sometimes more Irish.
* TakenForGranite: Of the non-rock variety. In "Chaos in Crystal," he was one of Shard's victims and got turned to crystal.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:In "The Ghost Pilot", he finally shoots down The Red Lynx when Razor tells him that if he doesn't, he won't get re-elected. His brief burst of courage doesn't last, though.]]
* UltimateAuthorityMayor: We never see a civil servant in the series higher up the political food chain than him (like a governor), and Commander Feral seems to answer directly to him and him alone.
* TheUnintelligible[=/=]{{Angrish}}: When he's angry or afraid (both of which are often), Manx tends to just blather nonsensical gibberish.

[[WMG:Commander Ulysses Feral]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/GaryOwens

The leader of the Enforcers, Feral is courageous and honest, but he's also arrogant, ill-tempered, narrow-minded, stubborn and rude. Worst of all, he regards the SWAT Kats as reckless vigilantes who are as dangerous as the villains they fight. {{Iron|y}}ically, he's also indirectly responsible for the formation of the SWAT Kats in the first place; see NiceJobBreakingItHero[=/=]OnlyICanKillHim for more details.
Tropes associated with Commander Feral:
%%* BadassLongcoat
* TheBrigadier: Insofar as the Enforcers are very military-like in function, although Feral is a little more acerbic than most such characters who fit this trope.
* BrutalHonesty: Diplomacy is not one of Feral's virtues.
* ByTheBookCop: By the time of the series. It's a bit muddier in the backstory.
* CantCatchUp: He's a fairly good officer, if a bit pigheaded at times, but he's out of his league when dealing with the villains the SWAT Kats face.
* CatchPhrase: "This is Feral! Bring me chopper backup!"
** "The '''Enforcers''' will handle this!"
* {{Determinator}}: He may not be able to ever keep up with the SWAT Kats and their various rogues, but that sure as heck doesn't stop him from trying.
* DistressedDude: A few times, most notably in "The Wrath of Dark Kat" wherein he's bound and gagged.
* EnemyMine: He may not care much for the SWAT Kats, but he can and ''will'' work together with them when the situation calls for it.
* GoodIsNotNice: He's the head of the city's military/police forces and he really does care about doing his job and protecting Megakat City. Doesn't mean he's a nice guy by any means, though.
* HonorBeforeReason: He wants to arrest the SWAT Kats and expose their identities in the process, but is not willing to break the law to do it. At the end of Metal Urgency, when the Metallikats' offer to give away the vigilantes' identities in exchange for their freedom, his response is this:
-->"I don't deal with ''scum''."
** When a surprised Callie Briggs question why he refused the offer, his response:
--->"Donít make a big deal about it. I just didnít want to owe those two hoods anything."
* InspectorJavert: Commander Feral is portrayed as this, though...
** SympatheticInspectorAntagonist: He does have a point: the SWAT Kats ''are'' unsanctioned vigilantes illegally operating in the city, flying around in a souped-up fighter jet causing millions in damage with their arsenal of missiles whenever they show up.
* JerkassHasAPoint: His main issue with the SWAT Kats is the reckless endangerment and damage they cause when trying to apprehend villains.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He has his moments of this.
* LanternJawOfJustice: He might be a jerk about it a lot of the time, but he's still definitely a good guy and he does definitely have one of these.
* LastNameBasis: Feral's first name isn't revealed until very late in the series.
* NeverMyFault: Back when Chance and Jake were still Enforcers, they had cornered Dark Kat, only for Feral to order them to fall back and let him handle it. When they refused, he actually knocked their jet out of the sky and into Enforcer headquarters, causing significant damage to the building and allowing Dark Kat to escape. Feral flat-out refused to acknowledge that the entire mess was his fault for interfering in the first place, even after Chance point-blank told him so, and placed all the blame on Chance and Jake, kicking them off the force and sentencing them to work at the salvage yard until they pay off the damages. It actually makes Chance and Jake upstaging him as the SWAT Kats throughout the series very satisfying.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero[=/=]OnlyICanKillHim: While they were still Enforcers, Jake and Chance had Dark Kat's ship cornered. Unfortunately, Feral insisted on capturing the villain personally, and his interference resulted in Dark Kat escaping, Enforcer headquarters being damaged, and Jake and Chance getting thrown off the force--and deciding to become the SWAT Kats.
%%* StrawLoser
* TopHeavyGuy: Bulky upper body, stick-thin legs.

[[WMG:Deputy Mayor Calico "Callie" Briggs]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TressMacNeille

Mayor Manx may have the title, but Callie, his attractive young troubleshooter, is the one who really runs Megakat City. (Which is a good thing, considering how lazy and incompetent Manx is.) She's also the SWAT Kats' most powerful ally, although the TV series never revealed how their friendship started. Callie has a secret communications link with the SWAT Kats that allows her to call them into action, and she defends the heroic pilots whenever Commander Feral criticizes them. Callie copes with danger better than Manx or Feral, because she's braver than Manx and smarter than either of them.
Tropes associated with Callie:
%%* ActionSurvivor
* BadassBureaucrat: When the occasion calls for it. See ImprovisedWeaponUser below.
* BriefcaseBlaster: Her MirrorUniverse self had a briefcase with the capacity to shoot out knock-out gas.
* TheCommissionerGordon[=/=]RegularCaller: Callie alerts the SWAT Kats whenever a supervillain or giant monster is making trouble in Megakat City.
* EightiesHair: Callie's hair is ''huge''.
* GeekyTurnOn: Brains, beauty, courage and compassion--what's not to like?
* GirlFriday[=/=]HypercompetentSidekick: To Mayor Manx.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Callie has this, plus ''fur of gold''. Most fans love her.
* ImprovisedWeaponUser: She becomes one during her moments as a temporary ActionGirl. In "Night of the Dark Kat", she saves the SWAT Kats by hitting the eponymous villain with one of the money bags he'd stolen. In "The Ci-Kat-A", when alien-possessed scientist Dr. Harley Street is trying to "recruit" her, Callie says "I don't think so!" and smashes him on the head with her briefcase.
%%* {{Meganekko}}
* ObliviousToLove: Zig-zagged. On one paw, she is unaware that Chance has feelings for her, and only considers him a friend. On the other paw, she gives Jake a rather flirty send-off in one episode. Hard to tell, really.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: As noted above, Callie's full name is Calico Briggs. It's only used occasionally.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In marked contrast to Manx and Feral.
* ShesGotLegs: Does she ever, the Fandom in particular seems obsessed with Callie's legs.
%%* SpoiledSweet
* TheWomanBehindTheMan: A rare heroic example.
** SilkHidingSteel: Despite only being Manx's assistant, if she wants something done then the mayor will find himself doing it. Also, as noted above, she can handle herself in a fight.

[[WMG:Lieutenant Felina Feral]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/LoriAlan

Introduced in the second season, Felina is a gung-ho Enforcer who happens to be Commander Feral's niece. Her uncle tries to keep her out of danger, but this feisty warrior woman insists on storming into the thick of each battle. Like Callie, Felina realizes that Megakat City needs the SWAT Kats and is willing to work with them.
Tropes associated with Felina:
%%* ActionGirl
* AffirmativeActionGirl: She was added in Season 2 so there would be more girls in the cast.
%%* FairCop
* FriendOnTheForce: To the SWAT Kats.
%%* TheLadette
* SkunkStripe: She has white sideburns for... some reason.
%%* {{Tomboy}}

[[WMG:Lieutenant Commander Steel]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Hal Rayle

->''"Yes sir! It's an inspired plan, sir!"''

Feral's other second in command. Steel(e?) is an arrogant and inexperienced officer who wants Feral's job, but doesn't want to have to actually work to earn it. In his first appearance he actually ''betrayed'' Feral in an effort to get him killed by Dark Kat so he could become the commander. Somehow, Feral let him stay, and he appeared one more time to (legally) take over Feral's job when Feral was captured by Madkat. His performance in this capacity consisted of sitting on his butt and dismissing people out of hand.

Tropes associated with Steel:
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Despite living in a world that regularly features supervillains, giant monsters, mutations and magical phenomena, when Katzmer (the antique store owner) tries to warn him about Madkat, Steel dismisses him as a crank immediately.
* BadassLongcoat: Like Feral, he wears a greatcoat, but it doesn't do much for him in the "badass" department.
%%* ChronicBackStabbingDisorder
* TheNeidermeyer: He is quite incapable of running anything, much less the Enforcers; in his second appearance, he basically just sits at his (Feral's) desk and ignores robbery complaints.
* ProfessionalButtKisser: Prior to betraying Feral, he compliments him incessantly. He reverts back to this mode after his betrayal is uncovered.
* PutOnABus: He doesn't appear or even get mentioned in the second season. Instead, his role as Feral's second in command is filled by Felina. One wonders what ultimately became of him. Feral most likely fired him.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In "The Wrath of Dark Kat," he insists his name his Steel "with two E's," but when we see his nameplate in "Enter the Madkat," it says Steele with ''three'' E's. Nobody is quite sure which is the correct spelling. Not even Steel(e) apparently.
* TheStarscream: A rare example where the character wants to take charge of a heroic organization. That said, Steele isn't very heroic and is more interested in giving orders.
%%* WelcomeBackTraitor

[[WMG:Enforcer Sergeant]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Ed Gilbert (most of Season 1), Creator/JimCummings (Rest of Season 1/all of Season 2)

->''"Yes sir!"''

Tough, capable, (mostly) humorless Enforcer officer. When Felina isn't around, it's usually this guy who acts as Commander Feral's right-hand man.

Tropes associated with the Sergeant:
* NoNameGiven: He is ''never'' called anything other than "sergeant," even in the model sheets.
* NoSenseOfHumor: Toyed with. Despite usually being super serious, he occasionally can crack a pun or joke.
* OffModel: Bizarrely, in the episodes "Enter the Madkat" and "Katastrophe" he looks different than in every other episode he appears in, and even wears a different Enforcer uniform. By season two, he's back to his pre-"Madkat" appearance and uniform.
%%* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* TheQuietOne: He rarely speaks except to growl out orders.
%%* SergeantRock


[[folder:Assorted Civilians]]
[[WMG:Ann Gora]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/CandiMilo

->''"This is Ann Gora of Katís Eye News, live from the site of a spectacular disaster!"''

This ''Kat's Eye News'' correspondent often risks her life to cover the SWAT Kats' adventures.
Tropes associated with Ann:

* ADayInTheLimelight: Ann gets more important roles than usual in "The Ci-Kat-A" and "Caverns of Horror".
%%* FieryRedhead
%%* GoingForTheBigScoop
%%* HotScoop
%%* IntrepidReporter
* MsExposition: Ann's reports are often used to bring the audience up to speed on the plot.
* PunnyName: Her name is pun on "Angora", a breed of domestic cat.

[[WMG:Jonny K.]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MarkHamill

->''"Annie, not my camera!"''

Jonny is the faithful but longsuffering ''Kat's Eye News'' cameraman. Almost always seen with Ann, Jonny is more cautious than her but rarely speaks out against her ideas, which typically get her into trouble - and sometimes him right along with her!
Tropes associated with Jonny:
* ActionSurvivor: He is frequently involved in action scenes but never does anything heroic, really.
* AffectionateNickname: The only one who gets away with calling Ann Gora "Annie"
* AllThereInTheManual: The initial "K" is only mentioned on the model sheets.
* ButtMonkey: Bad things tend to happen to his video camera.
* CoolShades: Mirrored purple sunglasses.
* FirstNameBasis / MysteriousMiddleInitial: Just what does the "K" stand for, anyway?
* RealMenWearPink: Well, okay, ''purple'', but still.
* SuddenlyVoiced: Although he utters a small cry of surprise in "Chaos in Crystal," it wasn't until "The Ci-Kat-A" that he finally spoke.
* SunglassesAtNight: Except for "Caverns of Horror", he always has his sunglasses down over his eyes, even in nighttime scenes.
* SurferDude: He has some elements of this, given the era of the show.
* TotallyRadical: His voice and some of the things he says root him pretty permanently in the early 90's.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Ann.

[[WMG:Dr. Abby Sinian]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Linda Gary

A historian and archaeologist who works as the curator of the Megakat City Museum of History. She occasionally helps the SWAT Kats and Callie Briggs gather information on supernatural villians.
Tropes associated with Abby:
* AdventurerArchaeologist: In her first two appearances, she is only ever seen in and around the museum. In "The Deadly Pyramid", though, she is actually out on a dig searching for the lost pyramid of the title.
%%* BrainyBrunette
* LabCoatOfScienceAndMedicine: Often with the collar turned up.
* PunnyName: Her name is a play on the Abysinnian breed of cat.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it "Abby" or "Abi"?
** Abby, going by one model sheet, although it's annoyingly mostly illegible due to the Cartoon Network logo.
** The script for the unfinished episode "Succubus!" (where she has an important supporting role) and the recent book ''The Art of SWAT Kats'', which includes scans of pages from a story outline for "The Deadly Pyramid," give it as Abby.

[[WMG:Professor Hackle]]
->'''Voiced by:''' George Hearn

->''"Such senseless violence. It's all so disheartening."''

An elderly inventor who used to work at the Pumadyne weapons lab. He came to feel guilty about his role in creating superweapons, so he quit to concentrate on peaceful projects, such as bringing back dead people by transferring their memories into robot bodies. When two drowning victims washed up near his home, he used them as test subjects--only to realize that he'd created the Metallikats. Hackle hopes to correct this error by recapturing the robot gangsters so he can "program out all [their] criminal tendencies". Hackle's other inventions include Cybertron, the RobotBuddy who assists the SWAT Kats in "The Deadly Pyramid".
Tropes associated with Professor Hackle:
* ActualPacifist: Which is why he doesn't just dismantle the Metallikats when he gets a chance.
* TheAtoner: Hackle says that he wants history to forgive him for creating superweapons.
%%* BaldOfAwesome
%%* CoolOldGuy
%%* LabcoatOfScienceAndMedicine
* LastNameBasis: His first name is never revealed, even on his model sheet.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Hackle's creation of the Metallikats shows that he is, at the very least, a dangerously naive victim of GenreBlindness. Never mind his using two strangers in prison uniforms as test subjects; he was trying to save their lives, after all. But then he leaves them alone with a WeaponizedCar and a cache of arms, even after Mac says "I've never felt so powerful, like I could rip apart this town with my bare claws!"
** ItsAllMyFault: In the alternate future in "A Bright and Shiny Future", he blames himself for not dismantling the Metallikats when he had the chance.

[[WMG:Burke and Murray]]
[[caption-width-right:200:Burke and Murray]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MarkHamill (Burke) and Creator/CharlieAdler (Murray)

Burke and Murray are two annoying delivery men who bring salvage to Jake & Chance's Garage, always taking a moment to pester Clawson & Furlong about their status as officially disgraced ex-Enforcers.
Tropes associated with Burke and Murray:
* AllThereInTheManual: Early promotional material says they're brothers, but this isn't mentioned in the show.
* BigGuyLittleGuy: Burke is basically a big oval with arms and legs, while Murray is essentially a midget.
* FirstNameBasis: We never learn their last name.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: And it's mutual. They don't like Chance and Jake and Chance and Jake don't like ''them'', but due to proximity (i.e., they also work at the salvage yard and are tasked with supposedly babysitting them), they're sort of stuck with each other.
* {{Jerkass}}es: Their greatest joy in life is tormenting Chance and Jake and attempting to pick fights with them for no apparent reason.
* PutOnABus: They don't appear in the second season.
%%* ThoseTwoGuys

[[WMG:Dr. N. Zyme]]
->'''Voiced:''' by Creator/PaulEiding

->''"Just think of the benefit to katkind!."''

A kindly scientist who works at Megakat Biochemical Labs and was once Dr. Viper's former lab partner. A gentle but forgetful soul, Zyme wanted nothing more than to make the world better for katkind. Instead he inadvertently created Dr. Viper, and like his counterpart, Professor Hackle, saw his dreams turn into a nightmare. In "The Giant Bacteria," he tried to assist Feral in battling Viper's bacteria monsters and (probably) got eaten by one of them.
Tropes associated with Dr. Zyme:
* AbsentmindedProfessor: He's prone to forgetting his reading glasses, to the point of searching nonexistent pockets for them.
%%* {{Adorkable}}
* AllThereInTheManual: His first initial "N," which creates his PunnyName, is given in his episode model sheets.
%%* CoolOldGuy
* DeathByLookingUp: When the bacteria monster smashes the lab window in "The Giant Bacteria," Zyme stands there looking up and screaming instead of running away (as Callie did).
* DistressedDude: Gets tied up in two different scenes in "The Origin of Dr. Viper."
* HartmanHips: A RareMaleExample.
* LabCoatOfScienceAndMedicine: The old-timey kind with the very high collar that buttons off to one side.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Played with. His and Purvis' flawed plant growth formula are what turn his [[DeceptiveDisciple greedy partner]] into Dr. Viper, dooming Megakat City to a neverending stream of hackneyed MadScientist plots and even ([[UncertainDoom probably]]) getting poor Zyme himself KilledOffForReal. Oddly, he never blames himself for it, or has the finger pointed at him by anyone. Commander Feral even flat-out tells him, "It wasn't your fault, Dr. Zyme."
* PunnyName: "Enzyme."
* UncertainDoom: WordOfGod aside, "The Giant Bacteria" never really confirms whether the bacteria monster got him or not.

[[WMG:Dr. Lieter Greenbox]]
->'''Voiced:''' by Creator/RobertPatrick ("Chaos in Crystal"), Nick Chinlund ("Unlikely Alloys")

An inventor who was originally hired by Warden Meece of the Megakat Maximum Security Prison to design a diamond-mining machine. It's what turned convict Shard into a crystal monstrosity. Later, he developed a "micro-brain repair unit," which the Metallikats stole and used to repair themselves. It then became "Zed," a sentient giant robot, which Greenbox... for some reason... suddenly decided to help destroy Megakat City.

Tropes associated with Dr. Greenbox:
* FaceHeelTurn: After he realizes he inadvertently helped create actual artificial intelligence, he becomes a generic MadScientist and turns against the SWAT Kats.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: This seems to be the only workable theory for why he suddenly goes nuts and decides to start helping Zed.
* NonIndicativeName: His name "Greenbox" (i.e. greenhouse) is an artifact of how writer Lance Falk originally intended to use him, as a botanist. When his profession changed, his name didn't.
** PunnyName: Falk gave him the first name "Lieter" to turn his name into some kind of weird play on "litterbox," which makes even less sense. It's also a ShoutOut to the Franchise/JamesBond character Felix Leiter.
** Although the pronunciation is different and there's some disagreement over how Greenbox's first name is spelled. See below.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it "Lieter" or "Leiter?" A sketch of him in his lab coat from "Unlikely Alloys" calls him "Leiter Greenbox," although this surely would mean his first name is pronounced like "Lighter," whereas it's said like "Liter." Then again, names aren't always pronounced how they're spelled so maybe it ''is'' "Leiter." There's also the possibility that whoever jotted the name down just mixed up the I and E.
* TakenForGranite: He got turned to crystal by Shard. He got better after the SWAT Kats reversed everything Shard had done.
* UnexplainedRecovery: Twice. First after he's returned to his normal state along with everyone else Shard crystallized, and again after T-Bone severs the connection between him and Zed, and he just sort of acts mildly worn out.

->'''Voiced:''' by Creator/FrankWelker ("The Wrath of Dark Kat") and Creator/RobPaulsen ("Night of the Dark Kat")

->''"It's too dangerous, Annie!"''

Al is the ''Kat's Eye News'' helicopter pilot.
Tropes associated with Al:
%%* ActionSurvivor
* PutOnABus: Although the news copter appears many times, Al isn't seen in the second season.


[[folder:The Rogues Gallery]]
[[WMG:Dark Kat and his Creeplings]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Brock Peters (Dark Kat), Creator/CharlieAdler (Creeplings)

Dark Kat is a criminal mastermind whose muscular body, hood, cape, and resonant voice give him an imposing physical presence. He specializes in plotting, scheming, and manipulating others into doing his will, but is more than capable of fighting when necessary. Dark Kat's goal is to destroy Megakat City and replace it with a "capitol of crime" called Dark Kat City, "where lawlessness is the law of the land!" His henchmen are an army of demonic little bat-like creatures called Creeplings.
Tropes associated with Dark Kat:
%%* BadassCape
%%* BarefootCartoonAnimal
* BigBad: Arguably the most powerful and ambitious villain in the entire series.
* BigNo: As befitting his status as the SWAT Kats' arch-enemy, Big D is fond of crying "Nooooo!" whenever he gets defeated (most notably in "Katastrophe" when he gets trapped in his [[HoistByHisOwnPetard own forcefield bubble]]).
* BombThrowingAnarchist: Essentially his goals in a nutshell. Wants to cause chaos and turn Megakat City into a lawless nightmare, or just wants to flatten it.
* BondVillainStupidity: In "Night of the Dark Kat", he chooses to simply strap the Swat Kats to a ConveyorBeltODoom and leave them to die while he and [[PsychoElectro Hard Drive]] go about their plan. Hard Drive even remarks that Dark Kat should have just let him fry them.
* CardCarryingVillain: As noted. His ultimate goal is to destroy Megakat City and replace it with his "capitol of crime" Dark Kat City.
* CoolPlane: His Doomsday Express.
%%* DiabolicalMastermind
* EvilPlan: Like any good villain, he uses one or more on the list in his quest to ultimately destroy Megakat City.
%%* EvilSoundsDeep
* FlawExploitation: Part of his plan in "Razor's Edge". [[spoiler:He tricks Razor into thinking that he injured two elderly civilians, knowing his guilt would cause him to quit crimefighting.]]
%%* GlowingEyesOfDoom
* InTheHood: Although his face is visible, his neck isn't. His head basically appears to simply be floating inside of his hood.
%%* LargeAndInCharge
%%* LargeHam
* ShroudedInMyth: Is the only member of the Swat Kats' rogues gallery not to be given a definite backstory. (Promotional material for the series stated that by day, he was a Megakat City judge that helped keep his true life well-hidden, but this wasn't referenced in-show.)
* ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil: His ultimate goal is to turn Megakat City into Dark Kat City, a "capital of crime."
* UnexplainedRecovery: Is shot down in his ship in "The Wrath of Dark Kat," seemingly being killed, but is back again just fine in "Night of the Dark Kat." Then at the end of "Katastrophe," he blows himself, Dr. Viper ''and'' the Metallikats up rather than admit he'd lost, but once again returns just fine in "Razor's Edge."
* VisionaryVillain

[[WMG:Dr. Viper]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/FrankWelker

->''"I can see it all now. A spectacular new Megakat City! No more ugly metal and plastic, only beautiful swamp, ruled by me! Dr. Viper's Megaswamp City--it will be so beautiful!"''

This slimy scientist (and walking biohazard) started out as Elrod Purvis, a greedy, unscrupulous biochemist. When he tried to steal Viper Mutagen 368 from the idealistic colleague who had co-created it with him, the formula killed him, then revived him as a half-kat/half-reptile monstrosity--and he likes it that way. To make his twisted dream of Megaswamp City a reality, Viper mutates ordinary plants, reptiles and insects into hideous, kat-eating monsters under his control.
Tropes associated with Dr. Viper:
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: He temporarily becomes a giant in "Mutation City".
* BackFromTheDead: Was reanimated by the chemical that splashed on him and killed him in the first place.
* ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes: How he's frequently introduced, including in his very first appearance.
* CameBackWrong: Of course, he wasn't exactly a decent man to begin with.
* EvilutionaryBiologist: [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Hell. Yes.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard from ''Franchise/SpiderMan'', to an extent. Unlike Connors, Elrod Purvis was evil from the staart.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: More than any of the other villains, probably.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: He's usually wearing only a lab coat and nothing else.
* LabcoatOfScienceAndMedicine: Albeit one that appears to be several sizes too large for him.
* LanternJawOfJustice: He could do gardening with his enormous, spadelike chin!
* MadScientist: According to the "Secret Files of the SWAT Kats," little fact files which sometimes were shown at the ends of certain episodes, his ''[[CardCarryingVillain actual occupation]]'' is "Evil Biochemist."
* MixAndMatchCritter: Half-kat, half-snake.
%%* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily
* NeverMyFault: While trying to run away with a stolen sample of the Viper mutagen, Purvis lets the bottle break and blames Dr. Zyme for making him do it.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: He tried to steal the Viper mutagen purely to sell it for money.
* PrehensileTail: Multiple times in the series, he can use his long, snakelike tail to grab objects and people.
* SnakeTalk: If there's an "S" in a sssentence, expect Dr. V to draw it out. Ssss!
* ThatManIsDead:
-->'''Dr. Zyme:''' Is that you, Purvis?
-->'''Dr. Viper:''' Not anymore! Just call me Viper. ''Doctor'' Viper. ''[[EvilLaugh (cackles)]]''
* UnexplainedRecovery: He survives no less than three gigantic explosions in as many episodes, and keeps coming back.
* VisionaryVillain: See his quote above.
* WeWillMeetAgain: As he escapes at the end of "The Origin of Dr. Viper", he promises that "You haven't seen the last of Dr. Viper!"

[[WMG:The Metallikats]]
[[caption-width-right:350:Molly and Mac]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Neil Ross (Mac) and Creator/AprilWinchell (Molly)

->'''Molly:''' ''"The Metallikats are runniní this city now! And as soon as we finish some personal business--"''
->'''Mac:''' ''"Like rubbiní out that crud Mayor Manx!"''
->'''Molly:''' ''"--weíre gonna tear up this town like a scratchiní post!"''

Also known as the married gangsters '''Mac Mange''' and '''Molly Mange'''. These feline felons died while escaping from Alkatraz prison, but Professor Hackle, who had no idea who they were, found them and transplanted their minds into powerful robot bodies. The result: two heavily armed mechanical mobsters with attitudes.
Tropes associated with The Metallikats:
* ArmCannon: They're [[IncrediblyLamePun armed]] (ha) with forearm-mounted weapons which are [[AllThereInTheManual called multi-weapons]].
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Yeah, they fight almost constantly. But when one of them is hurt, the other goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
* BackFromTheDead[=/=]UnexplainedRecovery: Twice! First Professor Hackle revives them, then [[spoiler:they survive getting zapped by Feral in "Metal Urgency".]]
* BadassLongcoat[=/=]NiceHat: When they wear clothes at all.
* CatsAreSnarkers[=/=]DeadpanSnarker: If they're not insulting each other, they're insulting the SWAT Kats. Or Mayor Manx. Or Commander Feral. Or...
* CoolCar[=/=]WeaponizedCar: Their Metallikat Express.
* DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster: If nothing else, they really do love their work.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Mac certainly does. Molly even declares him the worst driver in history. Mac rationalizes how he drives thusly: "I don't have to drive well in ''this'' little [[CoolCar hot rod]]! Everyone else jumps outta the way!"
* HappilyMarried: More or less.
* KillerRobot: Having the minds of two unrepentant gangsters probably has something to do with it.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: Though they actually ''are'' married.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: [[OutlawCouple Bonnie and Clyde]] as wisecracking FunnyAnimal {{Killer Robot}}s.
* OutlawCouple
* ShockCollar: In "Katastrophe", Dark Kat and Dr. Viper keep the Metallikats in their LegionOfDoom by attaching "neuro scramblers" to their necks.
* SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaids: There's no real reason that the bodies Professor Hackle gave them should be so heavily equipped for combat and crime. Professor Hackle just creates superweapons as a hobby without really considering what they'll be used for.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Mac is pretty stocky, while [[StatuesqueStunner Molly towers over him.]]
* UglyGuyHotWife: From what we see of them in a flashback, Mac was stout and big-lipped before he became a robot. [[FemmeFatale Molly, on the other hand...]]
* WeaponizedCar: Their Metallikat Express.

[[WMG:The Pastmaster]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Keene Curtis

An ancient sorcerer whose magical pocket watch functions as both a TimeTravel device and a weapon that shoots energy beams. This medieval miscreant wants to return present day Megakat City to its MiddleAges incarnation of Megalith City, but he's also known for creating "time vortexes" to bring monsters from the past (like [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs dinosaurs]] and {{mumm|y}}ies) into the present to do his bidding. And when he's not doing ''that'', he's sending the SWAT Kats into the past or future in his latest effort to get rid of them.
Tropes associated with The Pastmaster:
* ArtifactOfDoom: He has three of them: his watch, his Tome of Time spellbook ("The Pastmaster Always Rings Twice"), and the Jeweled Headdress of Katchu Piccu ("The Deadly Pyramid").
* BigNo: Is fond of unleashing these whenever he's defeated. In fact, he does it in all four of his appearances.
* EvilLuddite: He hates everything about modern technology, and his usual plans revolve around either trying to send Megakat City back to the Dark Ages or trying to return back home. Of course, this doesn't stop him from [[VillainTeamUp teaming up with the Metallikats]] to make a BadFuture where machines rule.
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies: He rings up a buncha zombies in "The Pastmaster Always Rings Twice". Why? Just 'cuz!
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty[=/=]LoveMakesYouCrazy: He kidnaps Queen Callista (in "Bride of the Pastmaster"), and then her [[IdenticalGrandson lookalike descendant]] Callie Briggs (in "The Deadly Pyramid"), in separate attempts to marry them. The SWAT Kats rescue the withered wizard's intended victim both times. [[NoYay Thank God]].
%%* ImmortalityImmorality
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In "Bride of the Pastmaster". By tampering with the timestream, the Pastmaster accidentally brings the SWAT Kats to his time, thus fulfilling the prophecy. [[OhCrap Oops]].
%%* OurLichesAreDifferent
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: A skeleton kat-wizard.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: In "The Pastmaster Always Rings Twice", he mentions that he's been "imprisoned... for 800 years."
* RedBaron: His real name is never given.
* SealedEvilInACan: If only those grave robbers in "The Pastmaster Always Rings Twice" had picked another cemetery to desecrate...
* SkullForAHead: After a fashion. Not as much as the Red Lynx, though. He weirdly still has hair, his nose and cat ears though.
* SquishyWizard: DependingOnTheWriter. Sometimes, he is just as physically weak as he appears; other times, he is surprisingly strong and tough.
* TimeTravel: This is his main tactic.
* UncertainDoom: We don't know if his fall into the molten lava at the end of "The Deadly Pyramid" is the end of him. He [[UnexplainedRecovery survived]] being essentially vaporized in "Bride of the Pastmaster," but who can say for certain?
* UnexplainedRecovery: His being disintegrated along with his dragon in "Bride of the Pastmaster," he's back again just fine in "A Bright and Shiny Future."

[[WMG:Hard Drive]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RobPaulsen

A {{cyberpunk}} "technology pirate" who wears a "surge coat" that gives him the power to steal secured computer files, control vehicles, and turn into a PureEnergy form that can travel through power lines. The suit has one other interesting feature: when Hard Drive puts it on, his normal hairstyle automatically changes into a mohawk!
Tropes associated with Hard Drive:
* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: How Dark Kat coerces him into helping him.
* BadassLongcoat: The surge coat, which gives him his powers, doubles as this, at least visually.
* BlankWhiteEyes: In his case, they become yellow when he activates the surge coat.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Without the surge coat, he's just a normal cat.
%%* {{Cyberpunk}}
* EnergyBeings: He can become one when it suits him.
%%* PsychoElectro
* RedBaron: We never learn his real name.
%%* {{Technopath}}

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

->''"Iím a tough act to get off the stage!"''

Insane comedian Lenny Ringtail, whose mind snapped when he was turned down as a TalkShow host in favor of [[Creator/DavidLetterman David Litterbin]], lets himself be possessed by the vengeful ghost of a medieval court jester who suffered a similar rejection centuries ago. The result is Madkat, a wisecracking, shapeshifting harlequin who uses his magical powers to kidnap "the king, queen, knight and jester" (aka Manx, Briggs, Feral and Litterbin), then vanish into thin air before the SWAT Kats can stop him.
Tropes associated with Madkat:
* AttackItsWeakPoint: It's revealed all the dingle-bells on Madkat's jester's cap must be destroyed to stop him.
* BigNo: Lenny Ringtail lets one fly when the asylum orderly watches ''The David Litterbin Show'' at the beginning ("Noooooo! Stop!"), and when T-Bone destroys the final bell on Madkat's cap, he, too, unleashes a pretty epic one upon being defeated.
* TheBadGuyWins: Madkat temporarily manages this against Litterbin, Manx, Feral, Briggs, and even Razor before ultimately being blown away by T-Bone; Ringtail, meanwhile, is ultimately returned to the asylum, but not before seemingly regaining his fame and fortune as a result of all of the post-Madkat publicity.
* DeadpanSnarker: Okay, so he's not very deadpan, but he's definitely a snarker.
* DemonicPossession: He takes over the body of Lenny Ringtail. However, it's not a simple VillainOverride like in most cases; he behaves as though he's actually both characters acting in unison, thus carrying shades of FusionDance as well.
* LanternJawOfJustice: Even before he possesses the body of Creator/JayLeno {{Expy}} Lenny Ringtail, Madkat's got a serious jawline.
* LargeHam: Once Madkat possesses Ringtail. You can almost imagine the glee Roddy [=McDowall=] was having playing someone like Madkat. He's SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker with the powers of Bat-mite.
* MonsterClown: What was your first clue?
* OneShotCharacter: For a villain who appeared in only one episode, he has quite a fan following. Due to this, he's the only one shot villain to get a level in the video game.
* SealedEvilInACan: His ghost haunts a creepy-looking jack-in-the-box in an antique shop.
* RealityWarper: Not unlike SeflDemonstrating/TheJoker during the ''ComicBook/EmperorJoker'' storyline.
%%* VoluntaryShapeshifting

[[WMG:The Red Lynx]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MarkHamill

->'''Red Lynx:''' ''"Manx is mine!"''\\
'''T-Bone:''' ''"Over my dead body!"''\\
'''Red Lynx:''' ''"Mineís already dead!"''

During "[[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Mega War II]]", enemy air ace The Red Lynx was the most dangerous pilot in the sky--until he met his match in the heroic Blue Manx, who finally shot him down. Decades later, The Red Lynx's plane is recovered and displayed in the Megakat Museum of History, an event which somehow revives his vengeful spirit. The so-called "ghost pilot" goes after the closest living relative of The Blue Manx--Mayor Manx, the flier's great-grandson, who happens to be in the middle of a re-election campaign.
Tropes associated with The Red Lynx:
* AcePilot: As noted above, he is an ''awesome'' pilot. He would have to be to fight a jet on even terms in an old biplane.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: He's actually a better pilot than T-Bone. Not only that, but T-Bone actually learned most of what he knows about dogfighting by studying him.
* BackFromTheDead: Returns from the grave after his biplane is dredged up by some construction workers and taken to the museum.
* DemotedToExtra: Does appear in the Super Nintendo game, but you'd have to look hard and be intimately familiar with the show to pick him out.
* GogglesDoNothing: Although he is seen with his flight goggles down over his eyes in the historical footage from the war, he never actually uses them in the present day (likely because [[FridgeHorror he's dead]] and needs no eye protection) and they just sit up on his hat for decoration (or he doesn't care enough about his appearance to remove them).
* OnlyICanKillHim: [[spoiler:See the Mayor Manx section for more details.]]
* ANaziByAnyOtherName[=/=]PuttingOnTheReich: Averted completely. Despite being repeatedly described as "the most evil pilot in history" and having what amounts to a German accent ''and'' dying in a war that was an {{Expy}} of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, he has more in common with Imperial German fighter pilots from UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, both in [[RedBaron name]], dress and choice of aircraft.
* RedBaron: Not only is he an {{expy}} of the TropeNamer, but he's known only by his two nicknames--his real name is never revealed.
%%* RedEyesTakeWarning
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: His motivation for coming BackFromTheDead.
* SinsOfOurFathers: Debatable. Although he targets Mayor Manx because he's named Manx and Manx's great-grandfather is the one who shot him down, the episode is maddeningly unclear whether the Red Lynx even realizes this is a different member of the Manx family.
* SkullForAHead: Like the Pastmaster, though, he inexplicably still has kitty cat ears.
* ThoseWackyNazis: Averted. See above.

[[WMG:Mutilor and Traag]]
[[caption-width-right:350:Mutilor and Traag]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MichaelDorn (Mutilor) and Creator/ChristopherCoreySmith (Traag)

->'''Traag:''' ''"The desert planet Sahabi will pay handsomely for the water we steal this day."''\\
'''Mutilor:''' ''"And if this world perishes in the process, itís just business."''

Mutilor is an four-armed, vaguely lobster-like alien SpacePirate. Traag is his sycophantic aide-de-camp. Together, they and their {{mooks}} attempt to drain all the water from the SWAT Kats' world and sell it to a desert planet.
Tropes associated with Mutilor and Traag:
* CoolShip: Mutilor stole his mothership from the Aquians, a kat-like race of {{Technical Pacifist}}s.
* EvilSoundsDeep: With Creator/MichaelDorn playing Mutilor, what else would you expect?
* LargeHam: Mutilor stands out in a series full of them.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Mutilor, who possesses four ''really'' big, muscular arms.
* OutsideGenreFoe: Even in this series, it's hard to find a bad guy who is an alien, let alone an enemy not remotely cat related.
* SpacePirates: Mutilor is actually proud of this.
* SycophanticServant[=/=]YesMan: Traag.
* WorthyOpponent: How Mutilor regards the SWAT Kats.
-->''"It was so refreshing to clash with true warriors. Itís a shame I must destroy you."''

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

->''"From now on, the skies belong to Turmoil!"''

Turmoil is a harshly beautiful villainness in a Nazi-like uniform. She attempts to conquer the skies of Megakat City with an AirborneAircraftCarrier, an AmazonBrigade of female fighter pilots, and a disorienting "Vertigo Beam". When T-Bone withstands these obstacles, she's so impressed (and smitten) that she offers him a job as her flight commander--but first he must prove his loyalty by killing Razor.
Tropes associated with Turmoil:
* AirborneAircraftCarrier: She's the captain of a massive flying warship, complete with its own armada of fighter jets, the [[EliteMooks Omega Squadron]].
* AmazonBrigade: All of her fighter pilots--and her crew in general--are women. She never met a man who could match them...[[AllAmazonsWantHercules until she saw T-Bone in action.]]
* DatingCatwoman: Her relationship with T-Bone.
* DoesNotLikeMen: A subtle example, in that her whole crew is female, and she's specifically mentioned that she never met a male pilot who could match them. Subverted, however, in that she's obviously not above admitting that T-Bone's an impressive pilot...or falling in love with him, for that matter.
* FemmeFatale: Especially noteworthy, as she was the only independent female villain of note to show up in the series.
* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: Puts T-Bone into this position to determine his loyalty.
* JustAStupidAccent: She speaks in a vaguely Russian-like accent.
* OneShotCharacter: Although she was going to return in a second episode, aptly titled "Turmoil II: The Revenge", before the series got canned.
* PuttingOnTheReich: Her uniform, complete with a CommissarCap.
* RedBaron: You guessed it--no real name given. Unless, of course, Turmoil really ''is'' her name.
* SkyPirate: She uses the Vertigo Beam to disable any aircraft over Megakat City, threatening the city unless she's paid a weekly protection fee.
* VillainessesWantHeroes: Especially ones who can outfly their EliteMooks!

[[WMG:Rex Shard]]
->'''Voiced by:''' John Vernon

->''"More company, eh? Well, thatís okay! Iíve got plenty of ''pain'' to go around!"''

Shard is a brutal thug who winds up at Megakat Maximum Prison, whose greedy warden enriches himself by using the convicts to mine precious gems from the nearby mountains. When Shard has an accident with an experimental diamond mining machine, it somehow transforms him into a crystalline giant whose touch turns people and objects into crystal... and that's only the beginning of his new powers.
Tropes associated with Rex Shard:
* AchillesHeel: Can be shattered by strong sonic vibrations, although to keep the episode from being ''too'' violent it actually just makes him shrink back to normal size.
%%* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever
* BigNo: Unleashes a pretty epic one when he's shattered at the end.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Focuses the sun's rays through his hand to create a solar laser beam.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He used to be just another convict. Then he got super-powers. ''Then'' he grew to a hundred feet tall.
* TheMagicTouch: Everything Shard touches turns into crystal, either brittle and fragile or hard as a diamond.
* MeaningfulName[=/=]StevenUlyssesPerhero: A guy named ''Shard'' in an episode titled "Chaos in Crystal" winds up with crystal-based powers and a crystalline appearance. Who'd have thunk?
* MiracleGroMonster: Shard is originally only transformed into a being made of diamond. When he is knocked into a room full of diamonds, he absorbs them into his body and becomes a giant. Later, he becomes even larger right before the final battle.
* MotiveDecay: Big time. He starts out explicitly wanting revenge on Meece and Greenbox, even though his present condition is [[NeverMyFault entirely his own fault]], but after he turns them into crystal, he just sort of resorts to random acts of heinous crystallization, apparently for lack of anything better to do.
* NeverMyFault: He blames Warden Meece and Dr. Greenbox for his condition, even though it's ''his'' fault for foolishly trying to open the compartment in the Gemkat 6000 containing the diamonds, resulting in the explosion.
* NoOntologicalInertia: Once Shard is de-powered, everything he crystallized reverts back to normal, starting from the last object he touched. The warden who got shattered is probably still in bad shape, though...
* OffWithHisHead: Rolling, bodiless versions of his crystalline head show up as enemies in the Super Nintendo game, for some reason.
* OneShotCharacter: Although he was intended to return in another episode, it never materialized.
* RockMonster: Of a sort, being made out of green crystal.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Before his accident, he's seen working in the mines in just pants and shoes, exposing his muscular upper body.

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

->''"You'll have to do better than that, SWAT Kats, to catch Morbulus! Or... die trying!"''

One of the SWAT Kats' first onscreen enemies (their second, in fact), Morbulus was a jet pilot who literally had eyes in the back of his head, giving him 360-degree vision and making him difficult to take by surprise. After being defeated by the SWAT Kats, he becomes a DisposableVagrant for Dr. Viper, who mutates him into that episode's [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Fifty Foot Whatever]].

Tropes associated with Morbulus:
* AlasPoorVillain: The poor genius didn't quite deserve to go out as a monster.
* AsteroidsMonster: Shooting the bacteria monster causes it to split apart into more bacteria monsters like an amoeba.
* BeardOfEvil: He is in fact the only character (besides a briefly-seen blacksmith in "Bride of the Pastmaster") who has a beard.
* BigNo: When he gets transformed. Dr. Viper replies with a BigYes.
* BitPartBadGuy: Due to his getting killed soon after he's introduced.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: He ''seems'' to be the episode's major villain...
** WeHardlyKnewYe: ...but Dr. Viper soon puts a stop to that.
* ExtraEyes[=/=]EyesDoNotBelongThere: The aforementioned second pair of eyes in the back of his head. He even wears flight goggles with extra lenses. Interestingly, he's also one of the few characters in a show full of felines with slits for pupils (in all four eyes!).
** This allows the bacteria monster(s) he gets turned into to have eyes when they divide like amoebas. The original four-eyed monster divides into two monsters with two eyes, and one of those divides into two monsters with one eye. (A weird animation error, however, results in ''all three'' monsters having only one eye at one point.)
* ExtremeOmnivore: The bacteria monster(s) eat pretty much anything.
* FakingTheDead: How he escapes the Enforcers.
* ForTheEvulz: Why he seems to be bombing oil refineries.
* LanternJawOfJustice: He's got a pretty big chin.
* [[MegaMicrobes Mega-Microbe]]: What Dr. Viper turns him into after he agrees to let Morbulus "help" him. Kind of. It's unclear if the monster is a giant germ, or a monster ''made'' of germs. Either way, both the episodes title and the dialogue refer to it as a "giant bacteria."
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: Twice he gets dropped from great heights. The first time, he's grabbed out of the sky by the SWAT Kats, stopping his fall so suddenly he should've broken his neck ''and'' back. Afterward, they let him go from a lower height and he drops into the ocean.
* RasputinianDeath: CoveredInGunge, mutated into a [[MegaMicrobes Mega-Microbe]] BlobMonster, and ''then'' KilledOffForReal (three times!). They ''REALLY'' did not want this guy coming back.
* SlasherSmile: As the bacteria monster(s).
* StockUnderwear: He has to ditch his clothes at one point, and winds up in purple boxer shorts and a wifebeater.
* ThrowingTheDistraction: He escapes from the Enforcers by taking his clothes off underwater, then reassembling them to make it look like he's still in them. Overlaps with GivingThemTheStrip somewhat.

[[WMG:Katrina Moorkroft]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Nancy Linari

An unused villainess that would've debuted in "Succubus!" (a.k.a. "The Curse of Kataluna"), Katrina is a wealthy heiress and a major investor in Megakat City. She owns Moorkroft Manor and the Moorkroft Philharmonic Hall. Described in Glenn Leopold's script as "mysteriously beautiful," she is in reality an evil succubus who drains the life from her victims. She tries to do so to Commander Feral.

Tropes associated with Katrina:
* AlphaBitch: Since she's a succubus, it sorta comes with the territory.
* BenevolentBoss: She surprisingly treats her servants quite well.
* BigNo: She utters one when she is defeated.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She may ''seem'' nice, but she is anything but.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: She is describing as writhing in ecstasy and issuing forth "gasping moans" as she drains her victims' life energy.
* EyeBeams: She is described as firing "lasers" from her eyes.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Sure, a life-sucking creature disguised as a woman doesn't sound bad to any ears, but it was pretty ballsy directly calling Katrina a succubus (y'know, the same species as [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan Aensland]]) in a kid's show.
** This would appear to be the reason behind changing the episode's name from "Succubus!" to "The Curse of Kataluna" (although the name Kataluna doesn't appear anywhere in Leopold's script).
* HasAType: All three of her on-screen victims (Feral, a dockworker and a construction foreman) are big, muscular men.
* HornyDevils: A feline-flavored one.
* LifeDrinker: She drains her victims ([[MenAreTheExpendableGender all male]]) until they are nothing but lifeless husks. If this is done after she has aged into an old woman, she'll be instantly restored to youth and beauty.
* NoBodyLeftBehind: But only because she ages into dust when she is prevented from completely draining Feral.
* OneWingedAngel: She transforms into a hideous demon at the end.
* RaceAgainstTime: She has to finish draining Feral before the next lunar eclipse or she dies.
* RapidAging: She is prone to this if she goes for too long between feedings.
* Really700YearsOld: She is ''not'' as young and pretty as she seems to be...
* SerialKiller: As of the beginning, she has killed at ''least'' six people in Megakat City.
* VillainessesWantHeroes: She pursues Feral romantically, but only to drain his life energy.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: She can transform into a huge demonic beast if she feels like it.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Said verbatim to her pet, a ferret which turns into a three-headed monster, after he fails to kill Callie, Felina and Dr. Sinian. However, she doesn't harm him.

[[WMG:Otto and Laszlo]]
->'''Voiced by:''' ?

Unused henchmen who would've appeared in "Succubus!" (a.k.a. "The Curse of Kataluna"). Otto is Katrina Moorkroft's chauffeur, and Laszlo is her butler. There is also a third servant who isn't named. All three turn into gargoyles.

Tropes associated with Otto and Laszlo:
* BattleButler: Both of them, although only Laszlo is an actual butler.
* CoDragons: To Katrina.
* EyeBeams: Like Katrina, they shoot "lasers" from their eyes.
* LifeDrinker: They, and the third servant, get extended life from the male victims of their employer. Which would appear to make them incubi, as all three are males.
* NoBodyLeftBehind: They disintegrate into dust when Katrina dies.
* NotSoHarmless: Initially, they and the gargoyles seem to be separate characters. The gargoyles abduct Katrina's victims for her, while Otto and Laszlo are just creepy servants. But when Felina attempts to arrest them, they reveal they and the gargoyles are one and the same by turning ''into'' them. [[OhCrap Oops]].
* OurGargoylesRock: When in their monster forms.
* Really700YearsOld: Unlike Katrina, it is unknown how old they are. One assumes that they've been with her a sufficient amount of time that they, too, are older than they appear, although unlike her they're not subject to any RapidAging - that we see.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Katrina.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Again, like their employer, they are capable of transforming, although into creatures described as gargoyles rather than demons.
