!!McNinja Family And Close Associates

[[folder:Dr. [=McNinja=]]]
!Dr. [=McNinja=]
-> ''"I'm not any other doctor!!! I'm Doctor '''[=McNinja=]'''."''

Our hero. He has the skills of a doctor and the soul of a healer, but he won't hesitate to get violent with anyone who deserves it. Made of a subtle sprinkling of Insanity over a base of Awesome.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Potentially subverted. An earlier comic where Mcninja was allowed to ride a unicorn brought up the mythology that only virgins were allowed to touch the creatures, but whether or not this was in effect was left intentionally vague, as he was too uncomfortable with the subject to talk about it. This combined with the recent revelation that the doctor has only ever dated one person...well, it's definitely a possibility.
%%* AwesomeMcCoolname
%%* {{Badass}}
* BadassBookworm: Well, he IS a doctor, after all.
%%** BadassLabcoat
* BadLiar: In spite of being a ninja. It gets {{Lampshaded}} in the AltText that he was [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/25p85/ trained for years]] in lying well.
* BerserkButton: REALLY hates [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/21p83/ Pteradactyls]].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Doctor [=McNinja=] is a vigilante, has no qualms about killing bad guys, and his office suffers gunfire and explosions frequently. But he's also a dedicated doctor, and can cure almost any normal or supernatural disease.
* CharlesAtlasSuperPower: He casually lifts up and and throws a vending machine in the first issue. [[SerialEscalation It only gets more epic after that.]]
** He can punch ghosts by humming the Film/{{Ghostbusters}} theme.
* CombatMedic: Though, more often than not, Judy has to patch him up. At least once the dichotomy between healing and killing is brought up.
* ComplexityAddiction: His occasional scheme can get needlessly complicated and even downright ridiculous. This bites him when [[spoiler:he tries to stop the dinosaur scout from transmitting Earth's coordinates to his people]].
* DeadPersonImpersonation: [[spoiler:Pretends to be Dr. [=McLuchador=], who actually died in anonymity, to infiltrate Radical's gang]].
* DoesNotLikeMagic: Due to a bad experience with it (his grandfather's death), he hates magic and ultimately seeks to figure out how it works and fits into the natural world.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Even his parents just tend to call him "my son". See NoNameGiven, below.
* FanBoy: Of Batman. Yes, really.
* GenreSavvy: Jumping away from explosions is always better than taking cover. A lone ninja is stronger than thirty ninjas.
** Outside of Action genres, however, he [[IdiotBall has a tendancy to overlook the obvious.]]
* HeroInsurance: Instantly pardoned and forgiven for any broken laws, provided he gets home to his office and says "Base!" before the cops get to him.
* InappropriateRoleModel: When the Doctor is confronted with his fears, the first one to hit a nerve is when he is told he is a bad role model for Gordito.
* InnerMonologue: Often. Doc has been known to argue with his inner voice.
--> (And lose.)\\
You hush.\\
* McNinja: TropeNamer. He's Irish-American, and a ninja.
* NecessarilyEvil: [[spoiler:While infiltrating Radical's gang as Dr. [=McLuchador=], he does not enjoy the heist he is employed to go along with; Namely, ruining the owners of a pizza restaurant because they aren't radical enough for King Radical. He made up for it at the end after finally beating Radical and hiring the two for a city-wide pizza party. ]]
* NoNameGiven: We know he has one, but he never uses it. A wizard is involved in some way. [[spoiler:When Dr. [=McNinja=] was a child, he angered a powerful ghost wizard. In order to protect his grandson from the wizard's terrible curse, his grandfather, John [=McNinja=] gave up the future doctor's true name as an offering to ThePowersThatBe in exchange for protecting him. As a result, the ghost wizard was TakenForGranite and his name was erased from all of existence, leaving him as the only one to still remember it. If he ever tells anyone else his true name, the ghost wizard will be released]].
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist:
** One of the few justified examples in that [[spoiler:he was cloned multiple times in order to attain multiple doctorates. Then, all clones but one were re-merged,]] resulting in the doc we all know and love.
--->'''[=McNinja=]:''' I'm a doctor. I know science.
** [[spoiler: He's also a talented actor, impersonating [=McLuchador=] well enough to have fooled everyone. The narrow areas Doc ''doesn't'' have expertise in are Computers and Agronomy / Botany, as Old [=McNinja=] never merged with him again]].
* ScienceHero: While his usual method of solving problems is to punch or stab them, he makes use of his "doctorin'" skills to come up with cures for Paul Bunyan's Disease, ghost possession, and Franz Rayner's ninja drug.
* WhereDidWeGoWrong: On the receiving end of this from his parents. His mother became a ninja through training, and thus did not learn how to raise a ninja child. His father came from a long line of ninjas and was never taught how for traditional reasons. They tried to inspire him using Batman. But instead of becoming a proper, ruthless, ninja mercenary, their son used his ninja skills for vigilantism and chose medicine as his main career.


!Gordito Delgado
-> ''"These are no coward's weapons."''

The effing badass kid: Doc's ward and protege. His father was a circus performer with a incredible finishing routine -- until it went wrong.
* ABoyAndHisX: A boy and his velociraptor named Yoshi.
* BadAssMustache: Grew it with sheer force of will.
* BilingualBonus: His name means "Little Fattie" in Spanish. Kind of essential to understanding the joke in [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/4p12 this comic.]]
%%* {{Determinator}}
* FutureBadass: Not that he's not badass in the present, but in the future he's an even ''more'' badass resistance leader.
* TheGunslinger: Provides the page image.
* HeIsAllGrownUp: Doc's reaction to seeing Future!Gordito is "You got '''handsome'''."
* KidSidekick: The Doc wants to think of him as the Robin to his Franchise/{{Batman}}, save for the fact that Gordito is not a CheerfulChild.
* WouldHitAGirl:
** Gordito enters school completely hated by all the other students. At one point, a girl slams him with her locker, apparently in annoyance that he's in her way since their lockers are right next to each other. He responds by giving her a black eye.
** When Hortense tries to stop Dr. [=McNinja=] from ending King Radical's villainous scheme, Gordito punches her in the face. And then does it again, just because he could. And then again.
%%* YoungGun


!Judy the Gorilla
-> ''"Ook ugh."[[labelnote:translation]]"The power of ciprofloxacin hydrochloride '''compells''' you."[[/labelnote]]''

Doc's receptionist and occasional muscle. She works for the doctor because his life is very exciting and also because she is a professional.
* {{Badass}}: With a rocket launcher, she is actually more dangerous than ''Mongo''.
* BadassDriver: Doc trusts her to jump an explosion with him hanging from the back of the vehicle. Earlier, when she went to fetch a new car and discovered herself in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, the logical course of action was to get to the car so she could drive through the middle of the horde, arriving back at the office with only four zombies clinging to the roof.
** A story showing how they met shows that she can sign and drive at the same time.
* BerserkButton: Her hot dogs were clearly marked, but unfortunately, Yoshi can't read...
* ConsummateProfessional: According to the Doc. Goes back to work bulldozing the remains of their bombed office with little more than a grunt of acknowledgement after getting choked out by Agent Bearclaw. [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/27p82/ In response to]] the chapter title asking "Why a gorilla?"
--> '''Doc''': Because she's a ''professional'', and ''she behaves like one''!
%%* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys
* KindheartedCatLover: Judy later gets a cat (though the Doc decides to name him "Ice Cream Cake")
* PhraseCatcher: Why is the gorilla a receptionist? "Because she is a professional and she behaves like one!"
* ShoutOut: to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koko_(gorilla) Koko]], a female gorilla who can use sign language and likes cats.


!Yoshi the Raptor
-> ''"Rrraaachhh!"''

A wild velociraptor formerly owned by a gang of Mexican paleontologist banditos (don't ask); currently Gordito's mount and pet. Not too smart but makes up for it with teeth.
%%* ABoyAndHisX
%%* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs
%%* FutureBadass: [[spoiler: [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/21p81/ Holy crap.]]]]
%%* HorseOfADifferentColor
* KickTheDog: Yoshi eats Judy's kitten. It survives.
%%* RaptorAttack
* YouNoTakeCandle: The future dinosaur invaders tried to uplift living dinosaurs on Earth. It worked mostly, but their grasp of language is limited.


!Dan [=McNinja=]
-> ''"We are on Eastern Pain Time, and it is Dan O'Clock."''

Doc's dad. Defeated Frans Rayner to become head of the American guild of ninjas in the 80's. His mustache gives him instant respect and authority, which is why he cut a hole in his ninja mask so it would always be on display.
%%* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Particularly when around Benjamin Franklin II.
* BadassGrandpa: He's old enough for his son to have a (if surrogate) son of his own, and is just as skilled a ninja as Doc is.
* BadassMustache: When it was revealed by his mask getting torn in a fight, he instantly became leader of the Ninja Guild.
%%* BoisterousBruiser
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Like his son. Believes that setting yourself on fire to avoid capture is so effective it overrides the obvious drawbacks. "Ninjas can't catch you if you are on fire."
* HollywoodHacking: Believes this is the only way to interact with computers. He has no idea how to do this, unlike Sean, so he throws old routers and bashes keyboards into them. It predictably does not work.
-->'''Dan:''' ''HACK IT''.\\
'''Sean:''' But I--\\
'''Dan:''' ''HACK THAT ROBOT''.\\
'''AltText:''' USE...THE ''NET''.
* ManOnFire: Can sustain extended/indeterminate periods while being fully aflame. [[spoiler:That his ninja gi is fire resistant certainly helps]].
* McNinja: Also an Irish-American ninja.
* PapaWolf: His response to a pirate claiming to have kidnapped his son is... pretty violent.
* ScrewYourself: Apparently a believer in this.
-->'''Dan:''' Oh god, he's probably making out with [his clone] right now. That's what they're doing.\\
'''Mitzi:''' ...what makes you think that?\\
'''Dan:''' Because it's what any of us would do! Try to keep up!
* TestosteronePoisoning: On occasion. His mustache ''alone'' convinced an entire clan of ninjas that he should be their leader. Also there's the point of ''setting yourself on fire'' to escape capture.


!Mitzi [=McNinja=]

Doc's mom. Known for her two specialties: Pickled beets and precisely aimed demolitions.
* ActionMom: A mother of two who is probably the best fighter in the series. She can defeat Doc with ease.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: She would kill her children out of love, as an example. Probably RuleOfFunny at work, though.
* LethalChef: An odd example, in that she purposely makes her food poisonous in order to train others. Then again, it seems that her beets really ''are'' atrocious even when they haven't been poisoned - her family chokes them down anyway out of either fear or respect.
* MamaBear: She will do anything to protect her children, including killing them.
* TeamMom: To Doc (obviously) and Gordito. She seems to see the latter as part of her family, or at least very close.


!Sean "Dark Smoke Puncher" [=McNinja=]

Doc's younger brother. Torn between his parents' desire for him to be a good ninja, his own geeky tendencies, and his longing for popularity, resulting in a use of over-the-top "hip" slang. Wearing a ninja mask.
* BadassBookworm[=/=]GeniusBruiser: Being a ninja who can build robots has got to make you one of these.
* {{Expy}}: Intentionally makes himself one of [[spoiler:Comicbook/DoctorStrange in the "Futures Trading" timeline, down to the BadassCape]].
* GadgeteerGenius: For instance: he's capable of designing a missile from scratch and hacking into NASA's mission control to launch it given less than a day's notice. What's more, the family routinely expects that from him.
* LegacyCharacter: [[spoiler: In the BadFuture, he calls himself Dr. [=McNinja=]. Though he specifies that it isn't because of his brother, it's just part of his schtick.]]
* MagicFromTechnology: The essence of his "technomagic".
* McNinja: Like his brother, he's an Irish-American ninja.
%% * ObfuscatingStupidity
* TookALevelInBadass: In "Futures Trading".
** FutureBadass: Badass enough to make the dinosaur army come running to fight him.
* TotallyRadical: It's a cover.


[[folder:Old [=McNinja=]]]
!Old [=McNinja=]

A clone of the Doc. He's a farmer.
* AlternateSelf: [[spoiler:Dr. [=McNinja=] wanted to learn it all in order to become an OmnidisciplinaryScientist like Batman. His teacher provided him with a project to create clones that learn and eventually reintegrate into the original. Thanks to arriving late and a time travellerís careless meddling, the one assigned to study farming didn't and ended up hiding himself away on a farm. Rayner abducts him as bait against his original, but together they manage to escape. Old ultimately joins King Radical, and turns on his original.]]
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: [[spoiler:Why Rayner cloned him.]]
* ExpendableClone: Subverted; when the McNinja family hesitates to rescue him, Doc argues that Old is just as much their son as he is, and when [[spoiler:Old joins Radical]] his right as a clone to make that decision is never brought up. Long story short, since he couldn't ever join back up with Doc, Old is officially his own person.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:He joins King Radical and turns against his original. Not that he sees it that way. He thinks that Dr. [=McNinja=] is the bad guy for opposing Radical, since Radical is making the city a cooler place. Never mind how Radical has little regard for the consequences of his reckless actions or how many people they hurt.]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:Old starts realizing that he's working for the bad guy after King Radical uses a giant robot to kill quite a lot of people. But after some thought (and after seeing his crush supports the plan), he decides to continue supporting it.]]
* IgnoredEpiphany: [[spoiler:He briefly feels bad about helping King Radical when his boss enacts a plan that will kill millions of people, but is swayed back by [[FemmeFatale Hortense]].]]
* PunnyName: Old [=McDonald=] had a farm, EE-I-EE-I-O!
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: [[spoiler:Dr. [=McNinja=] accuses Old of working for King Radical because he is now together with Hortense. Old says they're not, but both of them are clearly quite flustered by the accusation. He also reacts awkwardly when Hortense muses on the losers of their world being replaced with hunks, and repeatedly demonstrates that he has ''some'' romantic inclinations towards her.]]
** Doc reveals that because Old was cloned from him before he broke up with Hortense, he never had a chance to get over her like regular Doc did.
* StealthExpert: Unlike the doctor, he spent most of his life hiding, meaning he's much better at what he does on that front.
* WouldHurtAChild: He was prepared to ''kill'' [[spoiler:Gordito to fulfill King Radical's plans. Hortense of all people had to be the one to hold him back.]]

[[folder:John [=McNinja=]]]
!John [=McNinja=]
Dr. [=McNinja's=] grandfather, Dan's father. Retired, has a massive beard.
* AntiHero: As a reminder: the [=McNinjas=] are ''ninjas'', meaning mercenaries for hire. He's perfectly happy to accept an assassination contract on some guy just because that guy's sister wants his inheritance, and justifies it as merely providing a service and shifting all the blame to the woman for taking out the contract in the first place.
* BadassBeard: Unlike his son's moustache, he has a full-grown beard that's more than a foot long. He got the idea to cut his mask and let it hang out from Dan, though.
* BadassGrandpa: Doc's grandfather, an old man whose first appearance is marked by Mitzi and Dan (both highly dangerous ninjas in their own right) going on full alert. He subsequently managed to escape being blown up with a rocket launcher.
* CannibalismSuperpower: He got his powers by eating [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Spellcasting Pig King Overlord pork chops]]
* FightMagnet: He's made quite a few enemies. When he comes to visit the kids, they go on alert not because they're worried about him, but because they know he'll be dragging along ''someone'' who wants to kill him.
* HeroicRROD: All of his more powerful spells cause physical damage. [[spoiler: A particularly strong one ends up giving him a heart attack.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:He casts an extremely powerful spell to save his grandson from a ghost wizard. The result leaves him completely drained and apparently kills him.]]
* KungFuWizard: Turns out, he's a spellcaster.
* PostHumousCharacter: In the present, he is considered to be dead, though [[UncertainDoom Dan McNinja says he will never know this for sure]]. He does show up in an arc set in the past.
* PsychicNosebleed: He lacks proper training and casting any spell with power strains his body, which can result in his eyes bleeding. He can still perform cantrips (minor spells) all he wants though.
* RetiredBadass: To the point of deliberately letting people know where he is on occasion in order to keep them from searching him out.
* UncertainDoom: In ''First Generation Ninja American'', he apparently dies due to overuse of magic, and his body is left behind deep underground. But in ''Army of One'', Dan says he will never know this for sure.
* UnskilledButStrong: He has very powerful magic, but lacks proper wizard training.


!Donald [=McBonald=]

The first villain to be introduced in the comic, guilty of defaming Dr. [=McNinja's=] name in a new burger promotion. Appears later in "There is a Raptor in my Office" and later in "AWOL MD"
* BurgerFool: As might be expected from a Ronald [=McDonald=] CaptainErsatz, he owns the [=McBonald=] restaurant chain.
* CaptainErsatz: Originally ''was'' Ronald [=McDonald=], but his name was quietly changed to Donald [=McBonald=] years later.
* EnemyMime: Displays the ability to cause the things he mimes to exist in his second appearance.
* EnemyMine: Forced to work with the doctor to apprehend Jetpack Man in order to preserve profit.
* MechaMooks: Robots fight for him because everyone else has too much dignity to work at [=McBonald's=].
* MonsterClown: His appearance years later in color only cements this.
* {{Retcon}}: Was originally Ronald [=McDonald=], but Hastings changed it to pre-emptively avoid a lawsuit.
* YourMimeMakesItReal: Donald is a mime with this ability. The hero defeats him with a pantomime of an invisible rocket launcher, while King Radical simply decks him while yelling "I don't believe in mimes!"


!Frans Rayner
[[caption-width-right:150:Click [[labelnote:here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtrayneraoo_6847.png[[/labelnote]] to see him [[spoiler:with the laser eye.]]]]

Became the bitter enemy to the [=McNinja=] family after Dan humiliated him. Did a series of action films in which he carved a swath through ninjakind with the aid of copious amounts of The Law of ConservationOfNinjitsu and bloodshed.
* TheAhnold: Hastings decided that putting on his accent phonetically in the text looked too ridiculous, asking the reader in the AltText to imagine the accent.
* AwesomeButImpractical: [[spoiler:His laser eye. Since it has no power supply of its own, it [[CastFromHitPoints drains his physical energy]] when he fires it.]]
* BackFromTheDead: Dr. [=McNinja=] throws him off a cliff over jagged rocks. Death tries to claim him, but Frans Rayner manages to use his mastery over his body to stay alive after he should have been killed.
** NeverFoundTheBody: The Doctor tosses him off a cliff over jagged rocks. The Police later try to inform the Doc that they never found Rayner's body, though he doesn't learn this until later due to not bothering to take the calls.
* BadassBeard: His neckbeard, while normally the total opposite of this trope, is able to block hits.
* BigBad: In the D.A.R.E. story arc [[spoiler:and in the Army of One arc]].
* CharlesAtlasSuperPower: He is so well trained that he can rearrange his body's organs and vital areas.
* CriticalResearchFailure: InUniverse. He plans to become president by killing the president. When Gordito tells him that's not how it works, he answers that by that point he'll be so popular nobody will care. What's more, at the end of the arc, Dr. [=McNinja=] points out he's an immigrant, not a natural-born American citizen, and thus not eligible for the presidency to ''start'' with.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler:Invokes the ConservationOfNinjutsu against the [=McNinja=] Clones. More accurately, he made an army of [=McNinja=] clones ''specifically'' so that he could invoke it.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Eye Beam|s}}: It uses his own body's calorie reserve as an energy source though, so using it once renders him incapable of fighting.]]
* GratuitousEnglish: "You are the baby school, and I am the Big League Chew."
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Starts out as one. When his plans to take over the US by becoming leader of the American Ninjas failed, he launched a crusade to exterminate them and made this into a series of films. Due to Ninjas being ruthless amoral assassins for hire, they were little missed, and this won him a great deal of good publicity.



Genetically constructed "Uber-ninja" who assists Frans Rayner. Kind of dumb. Wields chainsaw nunchucks in his first appearance.
* ChainsawGood: He uses chainsaw nunchucks in his first appearance.
* DumbMuscle: Capable of carrying two grown men in one hand, but has the mind of a toddler.
%%* TheJuggernaut
* PsychopathicManChild: Rayner calls him off by offering him Happy Meal toys.
* TechnicalPacifist: [[spoiler: Refuses to kill in his second appearance, due to the death of a small child he became friends with. However, this does not stop him from delivering Dr. [=McNinja=] to Rayner's hands for him to kill [=McNinja=] himself.]]


!Dr. Knickerbockers

Extremely short neurogenetipharmocologist in the employ of Frans Rayner. Developed the ninja drug responsible for the events of the DARE arc. Somewhat creepy.
%%* DepravedDwarf
* EvilLaughter: "''Ee''heeheehee!"
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He specializes in drugs that affect neurology (such as the drug ninjas), but he's dabbled with cloning as well.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Based on a series of [[NightmareFuel recurring nightmares]] Kent the inker experienced and in his tenure, he refused to ink any page with him in it, which had Hastings do it instead. It is poor.



The real thing. His immortality has enabled him to master every technology and amass the world's greatest minds and talents in his secret moon base, but he is getting bored.
%%* ActuallyADoombot
* AffablyEvil: Sure, he's willing to kill people or damn their souls, but he's pretty friendly and polite about it. [[spoiler:Also, he's perfectly willing to help people [[YouDidntAsk if they just ask for it]], provided it doesn't interfere with his plans.]]
* ArtShift: [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/11p34/ One strip]] he appears in is ''animated'', appearing to be a normal comic until suddenly he descends from the ceiling. Since this is the only time such a thing has been done, it's unexpected and pretty effective.
* BigBad: Of ''Punch Dracula''.
* TheCavalry: In [[spoiler:"Futures Trading"]].
%%* ClassicalMovieVampire
* EvilPlan: He wants to know what exists as an afterlife and does evil things to find out.
* GenreSavvy: Fighting in a hall of mirrors is a great asset when one has no reflection.
** GenreBlind: Somehow did not realize that if there's a fight in a hall of mirrors, if his opponent sees him, ''it's really him.''
* MonsterLord: He's not called '''''DRACULA!'' KING OF ALL VAMPIRES!''' for nothing.
* PaintingTheMedium: Whenever he's introduced, he is called '''''DRACULA!'' KING OF ALL VAMPIRES!''', with that emphasis.
* PublicDomainCharacter: Lampshaded in the AltText.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: It's not that he doesn't, he's just done so much awesome stuff that now he's bored and getting curious about what might lie on the other side of death.
* XanatosGambit: A variation on the traditional trope [[spoiler: in that he's curious about what happens after death, but not willing to die yet himself, so he plans to kill and blackmail (in that order) the only person he believes is capable of actually dying, finding out what happens, and coming BACK to tell him, the good Doctor.]] If it works, wonderful; goal achieved. If it doesn't, no big loss. There are others like him and he won't have to find him because they'll come to him.
* YouNeverAsked: The reason he didn't intervene in the [[spoiler: BadFuture where dinosaurs took over the Earth was because no one asked him to help.]]
-->'''Dracula:''' They usually don't like the laser.



The doctor's ex-girlfriend from college. Now works as a mercenary of some sort.
* DarkActionGirl: She's a tough fighter, and will readily kill anyone who might get in her way.
* FoeRomanceSubtext: With Doc.
* GroinKick: Gives one to Gordito.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Doc used to like her, and Old still does.
* ShipSinking: [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/26p63/ Pretty finally.]]


[[folder:King Radical]]
!King Radical (formerly [[spoiler:Sir Sicknasty of Spades]], formerly [[spoiler:Charles "Chuck" Goodrich]])

The most radical man in the radical land. Conducts amoral dealings to improve Cumberland and make it more radical. Antagonizes Doc for fun.
* ArchEnemy: To Dr [=McNinja=].
* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:His primary motivation is, in fact, to better Cumberland and save his home universe by merging them together. However, his plan for doing so would eventually kill millions of people. He is at least, making sure that the biggest jerks on the planet are the first to die, with the more radical native residents being spared, but eventually, even innocent boring people are killed as well.]]
* AmbiguouslyEvil: He's almost certainly up to ''something'', and he's done some pretty questionable things like blowing up Doc's office for refusing to treat one of his henchmen and [[spoiler:murdering a version of Chuck Goodrich]], but he's also a largely benevolent force, using his mafia to genuinely improve the quality of life in Cumberland.
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: In the Radical Lands, new kings are chosen by the [[GeniusLoci lands themselves]], and are marked with the tattoo "Most Rad." on their fingers, declaring them literally the most Radical person in the world.
%%* BadassBeard
* BadBoss: He outright admits he doesn't like anyone who works for him, punches someone who brings him bad news and his response to accidentally killing several of his scientists is saying "well farts." In fact, [[spoiler:his army of "common men" were specifically hired because they are the worst, lamest people Radical can find, and thus the first who will be shoved out of existence when King Radical summons his people from the Radical Lands]].
* BerserkButton:
** Thanks to Sparklelord, he hates rainbows.
** [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/23p34/ Don't confuse him for the Burger King]]. On the other hand, this prompted a rather nifty costume upgrade, complete with full-length purple cloak and sash.
* BigBad: Of many arcs.
* BigWhat: [[spoiler:When he learns that his favourite minion, Dr. [=McLuchador=], was actually his ArchEnemy, Dr. [=McNinja=] in disguise.]]
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: All he really cares about is what makes the world a more or less radical place to live.
* CatchPhrase: "Radical."
* DoubleEntendre: He's radical in all senses of the word.
* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:He's a version of Chuck Goodrich from an alternate universe (the Radical Lands), and unlike the standard Chucks of the Doctor's universe, he has no problem whatsoever with killing people himself.]]
* FallenHero: Not that he [[AmbiguouslyEvil seems all that villainous]], but he's certainly the major antagonist, and he pays little regard for the consequences of his actions or who they hurt. Back in Radical Land he was their king and, by virtue of AsskickingEqualsAuthority, their greatest hero. But being trapped in a far lamer dimension has made him depressed, and it has even made him forget things about the Radical Lands, prompting him to "fix" his current world by ''any means necessary''. Taken a step further in the ''All The King's Dirtbikes and All The King's Men'' arc, where it's revealed that [[spoiler: he's actually an alternate universe version of Chuck Goodrich.]]
* FantasticRacism: Back when he was [[spoiler: still Sir Sicknasty,]] Radical was [[spoiler: somewhat racist against horses, believing them unfit for the Radical Throne. Needless to say, this didn't exactly ease Sparklelord's anger over not being picked as king]].
* FishOutOfWater: When he first enters Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world, it takes him a bit of time to figure out that the animals and trees of this realm cannot talk. He is also shocked at how plain the river tastes, since the rivers back home are made from the finest Mountain Dew. But most of all, he misses the cool people of his homeland. Compared to the Radical Lands, Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world feels lifeless.
* IgnoredEpiphany: [[spoiler:King Radical's plans revolve around replacing boring people of Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world with the awesome people of his home, starting off with his own minions, who are the worst people Radical can find, and thus the first who will die as a result of his plans. When King Radical's top minion, Herschel, is killed, King Radical actually starts showing signs of remorse. But one page later, he sees his old friend, Steven the lycanthropic centaur and excitedly remarks how great this is because Steven is ''much'' more awesome than Herschel ever was.]]
* KickTheDog:
** When his BigEntrance kills several innocent scientists in his employ (much to [=McNinja's=] horror), the most sympathy he can muster is an annoyed "Farts!".
** His treatment of the Friend Brothers, whom he taught to make radical pizza, but turned out to not be radical ''enough'' for his tastes. So he ordered 100 incredibly expensive pizzas, then had "[=McLuchador=]" hijack them so he didn't have to pay, instantly bankrupting them (and leaving job applications for Pizza Hut and Papa Johns just to rub salt in the wound). He claims they'll be fine if they rob a bank or something.
** [[spoiler:In an effort to generate the radical energies needed to summon his people from the Radical Lands, he uses a giant robot made from the city to attack the US army, killing huge numbers of people. Additionally, the process of summoning them replaces the boring people of Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world, effectively killing them. While the horrible people who work for King Radical are the first to be erased, eventually, boring innocents die as well.]]
* KnuckleTattoos: His reads "MOST RAD.", they were part of his coronation.
* LegacyCharacter: He's not the first King Radical. He was promoted when the previous King Radical died.
* ManOfTheCity: He is devoted to making Cumberland more... well, radical. Because of his influence, the city has, among other things, skydiving news anchors, a doctor who battled an EldritchAbomination to cure someone's acne, and a CaptainErsatz of Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk advertising for a grocery store. He's not afraid to use illegal means for livening up Cumberland, and Doc is absolutely sure he's plotting something more sinister, but everyone else supports his efforts.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He isn't really a scientist at heart, but he occasionally dabbles in it to support his schemes, and his knowledge from the Radical Lands allows him to create all sorts of fantastic machinery.
* QuipToBlack: Well, the closest you can get in comics medium, when he grins and comments "...''Radical''".
* SecretHandshake: Has one with Ron Wizard, his Court Magician. It is "A complicated ritual of hand slaps, finger locks and backflips that takes approximately twenty minutes."
* SecretTest: [[spoiler:Gives one to the owners of a restaurant he helped improve to see if they were radical enough for him. They fail and end up ruined as per the test's design.]]
* SuperStrength: He's strong enough to punch someone through a stone wall.
* SuperWindowJump: As is to be expected, King Radical's [[http://drmcninja.com/comics/2012-10-16-25p37.jpg preferred method of entering any given room.]]
* TotallyRadical: In name only - he's perfectly articulate otherwise.
* {{Troll}}: Best shown when [[spoiler:he mockingly reminds Doc about how his defeat of Sparklelord is a PyrrhicVictory.]]
* TheUnfettered: All he cares about is making the world a more radical place. And he doesn't care about how many lives he has to ruin or destroy in order to do it. When [[spoiler:the US army warns him [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing not to use his robot to attack anything]], just as he was trying to figure out what to do with it to summon more of his people, he gives a PsychoticSmirk and attacks ''them'']].
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: Everything he's done was to build up enough Radical Energy to allow the summoning of the cool people from the Radical Lands. He intends to do this again, and again, saving them from their dying homeland, and bringing them to Earth to make it a better place. The bit that needs justifying? [[spoiler:Every Radical Man he summons will take the place of a person on Earth. Initially, it will merely take out the world's biggest jerks, but eventually, ''anything'' that isn't radical enough will be shunted out of existence. Not only that, but King Radical's plan to build up enough Radical Energy involves killing huge numbers of people with a giant [[HauntedTechnology ghost powered]] robot.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: His evilness is questionable, as seen above, but he is at the very least a mob boss. Nonetheless, everyone in town seems to love him.
* WhamShot: The last panel of Page 75 of "All the King's Dirtbikes and All the King's Men": [[spoiler:King Radical is actually a version of Chuck Goodrich from another universe.]]
* WigDressAccent: The long gray hair, the mustache, the beard, the sunglasses, and the unbelievably radical outfit do an absolutely amazing job of hiding the fact that [[spoiler: he has the exact same face as Chuck Goodrich.]]
* WorthyOpponent: After Dr. [=McNinja=]'s apparent death Radical concludes that [=McNinja=] was the only radical thing in Cumberland - at least until he remembers all the others.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Due to having two Chucks attempt to stop him, and murdering one and paradoxing the other out of existence, King Radical has worked all this time under the assumption that he succeeds in his plans so everything will be justified and work out. He doesn't.
* YouAlreadyChangedThePast: Thinks this is in effect, due to Alpha-Chuck attempting a HeroicSacrifice to stop him and causing a divergent timeline Chuck to paradox out of existence. However, ends up being WrongGenreSavvy.
* YouMonster: PlayedForLaughs when [[spoiler:King Radical summons his court wizard from the awesome, if dying Radical Lands into a healthy world with bad pizza]].


[[folder:Ron Wizard]]
!Ron Wizard (Sir Cowabunga of Clubs)

Ron is King Radical's Court Magician back in Radical Land, and the second most radical man of them all (after King Radical of course).
* ArtificialLimbs: A robot arm.
* BadassBandolier: Two of them, seemingly for no other reason than to be badass. Which they are.
* BadassCape: Reminiscent of Comicbook/DoctorStrange's first (blue) Cloak of Levitation, minus the Amulet of Agamotto.
* BadassMoustache: Not comparable to Dan's but still pretty badass.
* TheDragon: He is King Radical's court wizard and the second most radical man from the Radical Lands.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He appeared in a flashback in the "Doc Gets Rad" arc.
* IgnoredEpiphany: He asserts that racism is lame and that the Radical Lands have [[SuperiorSpecies long developed past it]]. And yet, [[spoiler:during Sir Sicknasty's coronation as King Radical, he doesn't bother chastising Sir Sicknasty for demeaning horses as unsuitable for the Radical Throne. Though at this point it's not clear if this is his belief or if the Radical Lands don't consider horses radical enough on principal.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:Inflicts this on King Radical's army of common men to make them forget King Radical's MotiveRant about how he is going to shove them out of existence, thereby avoiding a MistreatmentInducedBetrayal.]]
* SecretHandshake: Has one with King Radical. "A complicated ritual of hand slaps, finger locks and backflips that takes approximately twenty minutes."
* StatingTheSimpleSolution: A variant. When King Radical [[spoiler:says that his plan to build up enough Radical energy to bring his people from the Radical Lands isn't working, even making the city a giant robot has only brought Ron over, Ron suggests that KR should make the robot ''do something''.]]


!Sparklelord (formerly [[spoiler:Sparkledancer, Sir Hellacious of Hearts]])

Evil unicorn who led a revolution of the radical land in an attempt to depose King Radical.
* AntiVillain: He's shaping up to be one, having attempted to usurp the Radical Throne because the King Radical of the time (our King Radical's predecessor) was a douchebag.
* ArchEnemy: To King Radical.
%%* CoolBike
* CursedWithAwesome: [[spoiler:Literally. The empire of the Radical Lands invaded his forest and twisted him with their magic to fit their ideals of what's "cool". He wasn't entirely happy with the results.]]
* TheCorrupter: [[spoiler:He gradually drives his rider to madness to satiate his appetite for destruction.]]

* FallenHero: [[spoiler:Used to be a knight of the Radical court alongside Sir Sicknasty of Spades, now King Radical]].
* KlingonPromotion: [[spoiler:Killed the previous King Radical in hopes of becoming the next King. When Sir Sicknasty was chosen, Sparkledancer promised he'd kill him too.]]
* LiquidAssets: [[spoiler:He was draining power from the Radical Lands in a bid to become a PhysicalGod.]]
%%* MasterOfIllusion
* OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler:He exists only to destroy and inflicted a corruption that has been gradually destroying his own world. According to King Radical, given the chance, he will destroy Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world too.]]
* RealMenWearPink: His natural form in our world is a badass motorcycle that just happens to have a rainbow design on it. Also, he's a unicorn in whose name is [[spoiler: Sparkledancer]].
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:Part of the reason he turned evil. He was one of the four knights of the Radical Lands, and felt that ''he'' deserved to become king. When the [[GeniusLoci Radical Lands]] chose Sir Sicknasty of Spades instead, he tried to destroy everything out of spite.]]
* StableTimeLoop: [[spoiler:The doctor throws him into a time portal that leads back to where he was discovered. The unicorn subsequently gets caught in a time loop, going through the exact same events over and over again, presumably for the rest of eternity.]]
* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler:To his previous name, Sparkledancer]].
* {{Unicorn}}: His true form.
* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world couldn't handle the sheer majesty of his true form, and thus transformed him into the closest thing.


!Martin Birding

Old college friend of Dr. [=McNinja=] who was once a teammate of his on a crime-fighting superhero team. Now he owns a chain of grocery stores.
[[caption-width-right:240:Martin's monster and human forms.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: It's shown that one of the motivators for him hulking out to save Doc and Gordito was because those two were one of the few people who treated him well.
* DumbMuscle: Literally. His intelligence is inversely proportional to how hulked-out he is at the time.
* {{Expy}}: Of the IncredibleHulk
* FreudianExcuse: He didn't actually intend to betray the team. His powers make him dumb, and people frequently take advantage of him when they find out, so he decided that being thought of as ruthless instead of gullible was the lesser of two evils.
* GagPenis: When hulked-out. [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/13p43/ The sight of it brought McNinja to his knees sobbing like a kid]].
* HanlonsRazor: The moral of Martin's character arc.
* HulkingOut: As part of his {{expy}} status to the TropeNamer.
* LamarckWasRight: He inherited his powers from his father, who got them while experimenting on himself.
* MagicPants: Averted hilariously.
-->'''AltText:''' [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/13p39/ The pants aren't stretchy.]]
* PowerIncontinence: He ends up getting stuck halfway between his normal form and monster form, requiring a trip to Dr. [=McNinja=].
* WellDoneSonGuy: His father (an expy of StephenHawking, hence the surname) is very unhappy about Martin's decision to use his powers to shill a grocery store chain.


!Charles "Chuck" Goodrich (the Mayor)

Mayor of Cumberland, elected for his plans to stop zombies destroying the world.
[[caption-width-right:120:Charles "Chuck" Goodrich: [[spoiler:Chrononaut]]]]
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:One alternate future Chuck leaps into the main timeline out of nowhere, narrowly stopping a mind controlled Dr [=McNinja=] from assassinating President Funkhouser]].
* CatchPhrase: "Greetings from the future you son of a bitch!"
* ChosenOne: [[spoiler:Chuck Goodrich is from the future. He came back in time to avert disaster, and succeeded. Except averting the current disaster always leads to a new future disaster in the new timeline, and a new future Chuck Goodrich comes back to avert the new disaster.]] Chuck-Prime is growing rather tired of it. This even happens when [[spoiler: its a Chuck in an alternate reality instead of just an alternate timeline.]]
* CrazyPrepared: Chuck designed the world's first zombie outbreak defense system well before the world's first zombie outbreak. He installed the system after [[spoiler:traveling back in time from a future overrun by zombies]].
* HeroicSacrifice:
** [[spoiler:One Chuck sacrifices himself to the Horrorsaurus in order to get the [=NASAGhast=] to attack it.]]
** [[spoiler: Chuck Prime hurls himself into the time portal to close it forever, knowing as he does that he will almost certainly die at King Radical's hands at the other end.]]
%%* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* TemporalParadox: Chuck ends up creating these whenever he sets out to fix a problem.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: [[spoiler: Every incarnation of him has to do this.]]
%%* TheSlowPath
%%* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Zombies?]]
* YouCantFightFate: Chuck will ''always'' [[spoiler: travel back in time after discovering a time portal]]. This applies even when [[spoiler: its a Chuck from an alternate universe like the Radical Lands.]]


!Ben Franklin II

A clone of Benjamin Franklin and Dr. [=McNinja's=] college professor. Helping him is the focus of the Punch Dracula arc.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:After dying in the D.A.R.E. arc, he is brought back to life by Dracula's immortality serum... [[CameBackWrong though he gradually transforms into a Headless Horseman]] and has to be given a MercyKill by UnfinishedBusiness]].
* ClusterFBomb: Tends to speak this way when in a sour mood.
%%* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive
%%* LosingYourHead
%%* PublicDomainCharacter


[[folder:Dr. [=McLuchador=]]]
!Dr. [=McLuchador=]
A mentally unstable doctor wearing a luchador mask. His primary means of healing his patients involves extreme methods, i.e. shoving the cure up their nose and then body-slamming them. Ran out of Cumberland by Dr. [=McNinja=].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: His methods of healing are over-the-top and insane, but they ''work''.
* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:The real]] Dr. [=McLuchador=] [[spoiler:died in anonymity years ago. Dr. [=McNinja=] briefly ran a DeadPersonImpersonation gambit to infiltrate King Radical's gang.]]
* CombatMedic: He a doctor ''and'' a luchador. This comes with the territory.
* TheExtremistWasRight: He's known for using extreme and dangerous remedies on his patients. However, those remedies also appear to ''work'' (at least when [[spoiler:it's [=Dr. McNinja=]]] at work).
* MaskedLuchador: Like Doctor [=McNinja=], he wears a cultural mask and never removes it. [[spoiler: Which makes it easier for [=McNinja=] to impersonate him]].
* NoKillLikeOverkill: One dose of a ultra-deadly poison ''should'' cure you. But let's use two, just to make sure.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:He IS Dr. [=McNinja=]. [[DeadAllAlong The real Dr. McLuchador died in anonymity years ago]]. The current one is actually Dr. [=McNinja=] running a DeadPersonImpersonation gambit to infiltrate King Radical's gang.]]
* TheRival: to Dr. [=McNinja=].


[[folder:Dame Dudeical]]
!Dame Dudeical of Diamonds

Was one of Radical Land's four knights, along with Ron Wizard, Sir Sicknasty, and Sir Hellacious.
* ActionGirl: In a place like Radical Land, you probably don't get a title like that without being this.
* BadassCape: A green one.
* NoNameGiven: Unlike the other knights, she doesn't have a name that we know of, just the title.


[[folder:President Maria Funkhouser]]
!President Maria Funkhouser

The current president of the United States.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Given the sort of world she lives in, it is hardly surprising an authority figure as important as her can fight.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: President ''Funkhouser''.
* BadAss: Bursting in through the windows of the Oval Office while armed with automatic weapons and outnumbering her 3 to 1? [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/28p05/ You still won't be able to take her down.]]
* BoringButPractical: [[spoiler:Ron Wizard puts her in the pilot seat of a GiantMecha he created out of her tanks in order to create a radical foe to generate radical energies. After said energies start destabilizing, she starts wondering if maybe it would be better for an actual pilot to drive the mech instead of the president.]]
* DestructiveSaviour: [[spoiler:When King Radical attacks with a GiantMecha made from the city of Cumberland, and she ends up in the cockpit of another mecha, she responds by attacking King Radical, endangering the people stuck inside Radical's mecha]].
* EyepatchOfPower: She has one covering her left eye.
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: She is a woman president, unlike any real life U.S. president as of when her character is introduced, so she's President Minority. Bonus points for being AmbiguouslyBrown. She's also got President Action going on, between the EyepatchOfPower and the epaulets and the fact that she [[spoiler: piloted a GiantMecha dinosaur made out of military vehicles against Cumberland, which has been transformed into a GiantMecha]]. She originally wanted to pilot a giant mechanical George Washington, but it was never finished thanks to {{Obstructive Bureaucrat}}s.
