!!Heroes / Team Dragon

[[folder:Jake Long]]
->Voiced by: Creator/DanteBasco

At thirteen (later fourteen) years old, Jake appears to be just your average skateboarding, comic book-loving teen. Unbeknownst to many, though, Jake is actually a fire-breathing dragon whose job is to protect a secret world consisting of leprechauns, mermaids, unicorns and other magical creatures.
* AchillesHeel: According to Fu Dog (and Jake himself), Haley is this. Also, as a dragon, he has a weak point located behind the left ear.
* AffectionateNickname: His dad calls him "Jakers" and several other embarrassing nicknames. Trixie calls him "Jakie".
* AmazonChaser: Jake excitedly comments he likes a buff woman, after he, Trixie, and Spud accidentally walk in on [[ActionGirl Rose]] doing an intense workout.
* AnimeHair: {{Justified}} and {{Lampshaded}} as a liberal use of gel.
* AntiHero: Mainly he acts like as a KnightInSourArmor. His tendency to use lethal force against some magical creatures might boost him up to a PragmaticHero, however he only does this when the magical creature in question is exceedingly dangerous or tough enough to handle blows.
* ArtEvolution: A pretty jarring case; in season 1 his dragon form is pretty big (resembling a Western dragon), but in season 2 his form is much more wiry. The second form is arguably the better design-wise, since it's closer to the depiction of an Eastern dragon and is true to both Jake's true build and personality.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Normally, he's pretty laid back, but if you threaten the Magical World and make him think that his girlfriend has betrayed him, you just might end up being thrown into a steel elevator door.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Does genuinely care for Haley, though it doesn't show up often. Nonetheless, threaten her and you will be in for a ''world'' of hurt.
* BigEater: Shown to be this in "Furious Jealousy". Jake really likes his junk food.
* BreathWeapon: Fire, like most other dragons in the series.
* ButNotTooForeign: Half-Caucasian, half-Chinese.
* CatchPhrase: "Dragon up!" and "Aww man!"
* TheChosenOne: He's the first American Dragon.
* CrazyPrepared: Sometimes. Trixie couldn't tell if she was more disturbed from finding out he owns a leprechaun costume or that he ''brought it on the ski trip in which he didn't expect to have try and draw out Huntsgirl'' (he didn't know her identity yet).
%%* DragonsUpTheYinYang
* DrivingTest: In one episode, a magical creature turns Jake into an adult and he decides to take a driving test. His driving is so lousy the tester only passes him because he threatens to request the same tester for all next times he takes another driving test.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Not usually, but sometimes he doesn't get the respect he deserves, especially from Haley. At least until she tries his job for a while and realizes how ''hard'' it is...
* FireBreathingDiner:
** During Season 1, a random human sees Jake's fire breath and thinks Jake ate spicy food.
** One episode of Season 2 features Jake eating fries so spicy he needs his fire-breathing to cool down.
%%* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself
* GenerationXerox: He's a lot how Lao Shi was when he was younger.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Technically, His mother is from a line of dragons ([[MuggleBornOfMages though not one herself]]) while his father is an average human. This doesn't seem to have any effect on his powers or the plot, though.
* HeartbrokenBadass: "Half Baked". PlayedForLaughs, of course.
* AHeroToHisHometown: He is the local Dragon of North America and is regarded as such by the Magical Community there. Though, not always as much as he would like.
* TheHero: The main character and his job is to maintain balance between the human and magical worlds.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Enjoys being a dragon, but wants to enjoy all the aspects of growing up. Comes to a point in "Being Human" where he purposely gets himself in trouble to have his dragon chi confiscated so he can enjoy graduating middle school in peace.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: A non-romantic reason for the breakup. Before Rose can fully sacrifice herself, Jake wishes that [[spoiler: she was never taken by the Huntsclan]]. The result is her living a different life and their relationship being undone [[spoiler: until she sees a picture of them from a dance and regains her other memories]].
* JamesBondage: He gets captured a lot. In one episode, he gets captured three times.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Jake is cocky, caring, slightly rebellious, vain, loyal, lazy (occasionally), resourceful, and brave.
* JiveTurkey: This raised some controversy with his excessive use of street slang. Executive producer Eddie Guzelian admits that the bravado of Jake's character was shaped by Dante Basco's ad-libbing and their own writing, which was supposed to parody the "wannabe MTV gangsta" crowd. Naturally, it was toned down in season 2.
* KidHero: Jake is 13 (14 in season 2) and is TheHero.
* LoveAtFirstSight: When he first meets Rose.
* MeaningfulName: The Chinese word for dragon is "long".
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: A lot of conflicts resulted from him not taking his job seriously.
%%* OfficialCouple: With Rose.
* OneHeadTaller: Inverted. Rose is a little taller than him.
* PowerAtAPrice: In one episode, Jake drank a potion that temporarily gave him shapeshifting powers. Until it wore off, he couldn't use any of his other powers.
* RedIsHeroic: Jake's signature outfit includes a red jacket, and his scales are red in his dragon form.
* SecretIdentity: {{Downplayed}}, his identity of the American Dragon is only secret to the [[TheHunter Huntsman]]. Most of humanity are [[{{Masquerade}} kept in the dark]] about magical creatures and he has no problem transforming in front of antagonistic magical creatures.
* SociallyAwkwardHero: Fighting magical monsters he can handle. Talking to pretty blonde girls, not so much.
* StarCrossedLovers: Once again, with Rose.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: The Tiny Guy to Rose's Huge Girl. Justified as they are middle-schoolers and girls are usually taller than boys at that age.
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: {{Deconstructed}}: He has ''serious'' trouble at balancing his schoolwork, his social life and his duties. The episode "Being Human" implies that he's ''really'' stressed due to this (Haley can't even start to guess how he does it).
** An episode did show him attempt to balance this via chi dopplegangers, but he did so via shortcuts (a chi amplifying dust.) After he grabbed the wrong one and made a bad chi clone, he reabsorbed them and managed to prioritize what he needed to along with getting his friends to help. However, it is still a great deal of stress and when taking everything to account, he does an admirable job as a hero and magical defender, doing better than what could be realistically expected out of someone in his position.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: The top part of his hair is green. Justified by the incredible amount of hair gel he uses.

[[folder:Lao-Shi (Grandpa)]]
->Voiced by: KeoneYoung
%%* BadassGrandpa
%%* BarefootSage: See Does Not Like Shoes.
%%* BreathWeapon
* BrokenAce: A very powerful dragon and the only one to defeat the Dark Dragon singlehandedly. However, his carefree life style and attitude was gone and he ended becoming a serious old man.
%%* CoolOldGuy
* DoesNotLikeShoes: There's a few scenes (especially Season 2) where he's shown to not even wear his sandals.
* ForYourOwnGood: Although it was never revealed to Jake or any other of the characters, this was the reason why he asked Rose to break up with Jake.
%%* MeaningfulName
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: Jake's grandfather is so small several people during the HalloweenEpisode mistook him for a kid dressed like an old Chinese wise man. Then again, it was shown in flashback he wasn't much taller than that during his prime. Susan should be glad the dragon powers weren't all that skipped her.
* NotSoAboveItAll: He was just like Jake in his youth. In fact, he retained the attitude (but was cockier) as a young adult until[[spoiler: he defeated the Dark Dragon the first time.]]
** Probably why he's hard on Jake; he doesn't want his grandson to repeat his mistakes.
%%* OldMaster
* OverprotectiveDad: He had a special device to spy on Jake's parents when they were dating.
* WaxOnWaxOff: Some of his training techniques.

[[folder:Fu Dog]]
->Voiced by: JohnDimaggio

A 600-year-old talking Shar-Pei, Lao-Shi's only companion and Jake's Animal Guardian. In the 1970s, Fu was a womanizer and a petty thief, but after meeting Lao-Shi, he turned his life around. He's messy and loud and he gambles and harasses women. However, deep down, he has a good heart and is a good, trustworthy friend to Jake.
* BigEater: "Two words: I'M HUNGRY!"
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Fu and Tell", "Nobody's Fu"
* TheGamblingAddict: He'll frequently make bets or have a bet he's made in the past come back at the worst possible time. Not even near-death has helped curb it.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Strong enough to [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom send Yan-Yan flying across the classroom]].
* HeelFaceTurn: He was a petty thief in the 1970s until he befriended Lao.
* HyperspaceArsenal: We've seen him producing a lot of things from his wrinkles, ranging from lesser things like cell phones and shoes to ''anvils''.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Fu's a chronic gambler, womanizer, and full of obnoxious puns and one-liners. That said, he's a devoted member of the team and always there to provide Jake with some emotional support and advice.
* LovableSexManiac: He's about as much of one as a G-rated Disney cartoon will allow. He squeezes a giantess' hump, gets excited when it comes to [[ZipMeUp zipping up a woman's dress]], asks a sprite to shake her things his way ([[spoiler: her wings]]), has stated that he falls in love at least six times a day and is shown dating two dogs at once.
* MentorMascot: He's responsible for helping train Jake and will often take the reins when Lao-Shi isn't around. He also has to pretend to be Lao-Shi's pet.
* NonHumanSidekick: Notably the consistent non-human on the heroes' side given all the dragons can switch back and forth, Trixie and Spud [[spoiler: and later Rose]] are normal humans and most magical creatures are just walk-ins for any given episode.
* PluckyComicRelief: Rarely lets anything get him down or stop him from making a joke. He's also prone to cheering up Jake when the poor kid's down.
* PungeonMaster: Loves puns.
* Really700YearsOld: He's 600 years old.
* TalkingAnimal: Has fully human speech capabilities.

[[folder:Arthur P. "Spud" Spudinski]]
->Voiced by: Charlie Finn

One of Jake's two best friends. Despite being a bit of a ditz, he's quite reliable. Season 2 shows off he is actually very intelligent, but because of how he was raised, he doesn't like to show it.
* AbortedDeclarationOfLove: In "Homecoming", he tried to confess to Trixie. However, Trixie cut him off and asked if they were nothing than JustFriends. He agreed wholeheartedly.
%%* {{Adorkable}}
* AllGuysWantCheerleaders: In season 2, Spud's crush in on head cheerleader, Stacey.
%%* CloudCuckoolander
* ADayInTheLimelight: "A Befuddled Mind" and "Shaggy Frog". Also, both he and Trixie share the spotlight in "Keeping Shop".
* EvilLaugh: Has a "talent" for [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] these. He has one as well. It needs work.
%%* GeniusDitz
* HiddenDepths: It's been hinted several times that Spud actually has a magical background (namely that his grandfather may have been a wizard), but is just unaware of it.
** Not to mention the reveal he is actually something of a genius.
%%* IJustWantToBeSpecial: "Shaggy Frog".
%%* MuggleBestFriend

%%* PluckyComicRelief
%%* SecretKeeper
* ShipTease: With Trixie. To both's happiness, they don't get romantically together.

%%* SuperpowersForADay: "Shaggy Frog".
* UnwillingSuspension: Happens to him in "A Befuddled Mind".

[[folder:Trixie Carter]]
->Voiced by: Miss Kittie

One of Jake's best friends. She sometimes acts as the voice of reason. Shows signs of becoming a doctor.

* MuggleBestFriend: She and Spud are Jake's closest friend.
%%* {{Odango}}
* OneOfTheBoys: The only ones she hangs out with are Jake and Spud.
%%* SassyBlackWoman
* SecretKeeper: She keeps Jake's magical background and duties a secret.
* ShesGotLegs: An episode has Trixie becomes a cheerleader. When her friends see her in a revealing miniskirt for the first time [[DistractedByTheSexy this]] is their reaction. One of them goes on to talk about her legs for a while afterward, questioning why she never showed off her legs before.
* ShipTease: With Spud. To both's happiness, they don't get romantically together.
%%* SideKick
%%* {{Tomboy}}
* VerbalTic: She uses the word "baby" a lot.

->Voiced by: Creator/MaeWhitman

A hot, popular girl at school, Rose catches the attention of Jake immediately. However, there is more to this girl than meets the eye. She is actually a highly skilled hunter, trained by the Huntsclan to fight and slay dragons. Jake's girlfriend.
* ActionGirl
** DarkActionGirl: Before her HeelFaceTurn.
* AntiHero: [[spoiler: Committing an act of genocide to save the Magical World]] cements her as this. She's probably a PragmaticHero.
* AntiVillain: In "The Love Cruise", where Jake shooting her with one of Cupid's love arrows causes her love for him to turn into hate, reverting her back to her pre-HeelFaceTurn self.
* TheApprentice: She is literally at the "Apprentice Level" in the Huntsclan. She's skilled, but Jake is just as skilled, preventing her from ever rising in Huntsclan status.
%%* BadassAdorable
* BadassNormal: Pretty much the entire Huntsclan, really, but when a fourteen-year-old girl built like a drinking straw is fighting huge firebreathing dragons to a standstill know you don't want to get on her bad side.
* BirthmarkOfDestiny: The Mark of the Huntsclan.
%%* BraidsOfAction
* CustomUniform: Her Season One Huntsclan uniform.
%%* CuteBruiser
* TheDragon: To The Huntsman, before her HeelFaceTurn. Ironic, isn't it?
* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: At the end of "Homecoming", Jake grants her wish of a normal life]].
%%* FirstGirlWins
%%* GirlNextDoor
%%* HardHead: "The Halloween Bash".
%%* HeelFaceTurn
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Subverted. She wishes for the destruction of the Huntsclan with the Aztec Skulls, but as she soars into the air, Jake uses his wish to save her. Granted, she still gets an ObiWanMoment where she [[GoOutWithASmile smiles down at Jake]]]].
%5* IJustWantToBeNormal
* IdentityAmnesia: [[spoiler: After Jake uses his wish to save her, she doesn't have memories of Jake just as she left him after the Huntsclan is eradicated. She got better in the GrandFinale with her memories restored that is]].
* KillerRabbit: That pretty girl in the picture there is capable of knocking out several mythical creatures with her WaifFu.
** Acknowledged in-universe and by the rest of the Huntsclan: when he learns of her HeelFaceTurn, the Huntsman confronts her armed and backed by four other Huntsclan members who has already slayed a dragon (a big accomplishment, they have often remarked, and a sign of their strenght and skill). It takes Rose FIVE SECONDS to defeat the four Huntsclan members and hold the Huntsman at the point of his own energy lance.
%%* LoveRedeems
* {{McNinja}}: Or, as Trixie calls her, "Little-Miss-Ninja-Thang".
%%* OfficialCouple: With Jake.
* OnlyOneName: She was never given a last name. Justified because of her being in the Huntsclan; her last name was originally supposed to be [[MeaningfulName "Killdragonosa"]], but the writers chose to drop it because of this.
* ParentalAbandonment: Rose thinks that both of her parents are dead. Turns out [[spoiler: The Huntsman kidnapped her at birth]].
* PutOnABus: As a result of ExecutiveMeddling after she [[spoiler: lost her memory as a result of being rescued from an attempted HeroicSacrifice]]. [[BackForTheFinale She was brought back in the series finale]].
%%* RedemptionEarnsLife
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: This is what The Huntsman taught her. She no longer believes this.
* RetGone: [[spoiler: Jake's wish at the end of "Homecoming" ends up doing this to Huntsgirl]].
%%* ReverseMole: In "Homecoming".
* {{Roofhopping}}: As seen in "Old School Training", she has this ability.
* SecretIdentity: Huntsgirl.
* [[HesBack She's Back]]: While there wasn't any HeroicBSOD, she makes a grand return to action in "Hong Kong Longs" after she regains her memory.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Rose develops an attraction to [[TheHero Jake]] when he comforts her after [[{{Jerkass}} Brad]] dumps her on their date. The attraction gets stronger as they start dating each other.
%%* StarCrossedLovers: With Jake.
%%* TinyGuyHugeGirl: The Huge Girl to Jake's Tiny Guy.
%%* TheTragicRose
* UngratefulBitch: At the end of "Ski Trip", after Jake saves her from falling to her death.
%%* WaifFu
* WritingAroundTrademarks: Her Huntsclan moniker had to be changed from "Thorn" to "Huntsgirl" in order to avoid legal trouble.

[[folder:Haley Long]]
->Voiced by: Amy Bruckner

Jake's younger sister who's a perfectionist and almost never gets in trouble. She has just mastered her dragon form and has just started her training.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] While she ''is'' a better student and is shown to have natural talent with her Dragon Skills, it's also shown that this is specifically because she doesn't have to WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld like Jake does on a daily basis. After Jake temporarily gave up his role as the American Dragon, Haley had to assume the responsibility...and cracked under the pressure in less than a week. This helps her gain a new-found respect for her older brother and leads her to [[CallingTheOldManOut calling out their grandfather]] in "Being Human."
** In "Family Business", Haley ended up kidnapped when her dragon powers were on the fritz, courtesy of a [[GreenEyedMonster jealous Jake]], necessitating a rescue from her brother; after the rescue, Haley reveals that [[spoiler: the powder he had pranked her with wore off pretty much right as she was getting kidnapped. It was her own fear that prevented her from fighting back.]] This is notably one area where Jake trumps Haley as when he was in a similar situation, he was able to get out with minimal help.
%%* AnnoyingYoungerSibling
* AttentionWhore: Seems to have shades of this, such as in "Fu and Tell." Jake later brings up how much she likes attention in "Switcheroo."
%%* BerserkButton: In "Being Human".
* BrotherSisterTeam: Occasionally. At other times, Jake and Haley are at each other's throats.
%%* BreathWeapon
%%* ButNotTooForeign
* CallingTheOldManOut: Does this to her grandfather in "Being Human."
%%* ChildProdigy
* DistressedDamsel: At the end of "Family Business".
%%* GirlishPigtails
%%* MagicSkirt
* MeaningfulName: Haley is named after Haley's Comet; Susan Long took a liking to the name after she and Jonathan attended a party and watched the comet bypass Earth in orbit.
%%* PintSizedKid
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Her dragon form is pink.
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: {{Deconstructed}} in "Being Human," where she temporarily takes over as the American Dragon...and is reduced to a nervous wreck in less than a week. She does gain a newfound respect for her brother and defends against their grandfather, pointing out the severity the job takes one as well as mentioning the personal losses Jake went through as a result.

[[folder:Jonathan Long]]
->Voiced by: Creator/JeffBennett

Jake's goofy, but loving father who has no idea that he has married into a magical family. As well as being goofy and embarrassing, he is also strict, however, he only is that way because he wants his children to remain safe. For if you hurt his children, beware.
%%* {{Amazingly Embarrassing Parent|s}}
%%* BadassNormal
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass:
** When the Jersey's Devil attacked him, he mistook it for a bear and went into survival mode. When the Jersey's Devil attacked Jake, he still mistook it for a bear and ''threw it down off a cliff with a SwissArmyWeapon fitted with bear spray''.
** He defeated the entire army of Shade Demons in the series finale by grabbing a ceremonial vase with his fanny pack and reflected moonlight off of it. Jake even lampshades it proudly.
* PapaWolf: See the first example of his CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass entry. Also when Jake was defeated by some vampires (they were masquerading as important business associates), Jonathon got ''pissed'' and let the have it.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:In the series finale, "Hong Kong Longs," he founds out about his wife's side of the family are dragons and that magical creatures are real. But rather than leave Susan or get angry, he's very accepting of it, and admits that he always had a feeling that there was something "magical" about his family.]]
* SupernaturalProofFather
** However, according to one of the writers of the show on the Toonzone forums, at one point there plans to reveal [[spoiler: He's a werewolf]]

[[folder:Susan Long]]
->Voiced by: Creator/LaurenTom

Jake's mother. She has no magical powers, since they skipped her generation. She is reluctant to reveal her family's heritage to her husband (apparently out of the fear that he will abandon her), and to this end, lies to her husband about Jake's business, sometimes letting Jake take the fall.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: She owns and operates a catering company.
* MissingMom: Lao Shi's wife and Susan's mother was never mentioned.
* MuggleBornOfMages: The dragon powers skipped her generation.

[[folder:Sun Park]]
->Voiced by: Sandra Oh

The Korean Dragon, Haley's dragon master and Jake's Home Economics teacher.
* FirstNameBasis: "Please, call me Sun. Miss Park is so formal."
* HippieTeacher: She doesn't like being called "Ms. Park", says words like "groovy" and believes that violence is for the weak and cowardly.
* MysteriousWatcher: She seems to come off as this towards Jake in her first appearance, before she turns out to be Haley's mentor.
%%* SenseiChan
* TechnicalPacifist: This exchange during one of her fights:
-->'''Chang''': Sun Park, I thought you were all about peace and love.
-->'''Sun''': And what I really love is to give you a piece of this!
* TheWorfEffect: Appears to be a victim of this. She is easily defeated by Chang (twice), is blasted out of the air by The Dark Dragon in the series finale and even gets attacked by humans with soda cans in "Haley Gone Wild".
* WorfHadTheFlu: A pacifist dragon against humans means a lot of holding back. Also [[JustifiedTrope justified]] with the Dark Dragon and Chang; Chang is quite more experienced and violent than she, and the Dark Dragon in the GrandFinale is so powerful that when he blasted her he was also taking on and ''winning against dozens of dragons at once, including the only two who had actually managed to defeat him in the past''.


[[folder:The Huntsman (Huntsmaster)]]
->Voiced by: Creator/JeffBennett

The leader of the Huntsclan and the #4 threat to the Magical World, The Huntsman is a hateful man whose only desire is to kill every magical creature on the face of the Earth.
%%* ArchEnemy
%%* BadassCape
%%* BaldOfEvil
%%* BigBad
* BirthmarkOfDestiny: And a big one he has.
* ButtMonkey: He was shown to be this when he was a teenager. That was before his voice changed and he became the man he was in the series; the kind of man whose intensity and hatred made his tormentors cower in fear.
* EvilLaugh: Has one every now and then. He's the only major villain with one who never gets it [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Spud.
* TheFaceless: He wears the skull of the first dragon he ever killed upon his head. His face is only shown after Jake slams him into an elevator door, shattering the helmet.
* FantasticRacism: He hates all magical creatures, to the point where his master plan in season two was to have them all wiped out of existence.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: An episode in Season 2 reveals that he was an amazingly ineffective member of the Huntsclan who was bullied by people more skilled than him. He's since become the #4 threat to all magical beings.
%%* HoistByHisOwnPetard
%%* TheHunter
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: The Huntsclan's annual Grand Equinox Hunt.
%%* KnightTemplar
%%* ANaziByAnyOtherName
%%* NoNameGiven
%%* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain
* ProperlyParanoid: he's either that or CrazyPrepared, given he kept track of Rose's parents for fourteen years in the off-chance she rejected her Huntsclan upbringing and he needed to blackmail her into doing his bidding.
%%* RedEyesTakeWarning: In Season One.
* SmugSnake: If he thinks that things are going his way, he can be very, very smug. "The Halloween Bash" is a perfect example.
%%* StrangerBehindTheMask
* SuperStrength: He possibly has this. He is shown punching through a brick wall, is barely fazed by being slammed head-first through an elevator door, and he then rips one of the pulleys from the shaft and slams it onto the ground in a fit of rage.
* VillainBall: Y'know Huntsman, if you had just executed Rose after she gave you the last Aztec Skull and defeated Jake, she never would have had the chance to shoot you from behind and wish for your death. Then again, he was blackmailing her with her parents' safety and didn't imagine she'd sacrifice herself.

[[folder:The Dark Dragon]]
->Voiced by: Creator/ClancyBrown

The #1 threat to the Magical World and apparently the only dragon to ever go bad, The Dark Dragon hates all humans and wishes to overthrow the human race, not to mention to convert all of the world's dragons to his side.
* ArchEnemy: Often regarded as Jake's but is actually more Lao-Shi's.
%%* BackFromTheDead
* {{Badass}}: Was capable of handling several dragons [[spoiler: post-resurrection]], even Jake and Lao-Shi, the only ones who have ever actually defeated him.
%%* BreathWeapon
%%* TheCorrupter
* DefeatingTheUndefeatable: Before Lao Shi, nobody ''survived'' a fight with him. Then young Lao Shi defeated and apparently drowned him. Then in season 1, Jake (who had barely escaped him in their first encounter) masterminds his defeat [[spoiler: and first death]], and in the series finale, when he had been empowered to the point that dozens of dragons were no match for him, Rose put him down for good.
%%* EvilIsHammy
* EvilLaugh: Spud won't shut up about how cliched his laugh is in "Hong Kong Longs".
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: Trapped inside a temple for 1,000 years]].
%%* FantasticRacism
* FinalBoss: Ends up being this of the series.
* GreaterScopeVillain: The #1 threat to the Magical World has a speaking role in all of three episodes.
* LargeHam: "You have no idea of my DARK POWERS!"
%%* MisanthropeSupreme
* NoNameGiven
* PaletteSwap: In Season 1, his appearance is similar to that of Jake's Dragon form, with a similar jawline, body pattern, and hairstyle, only black and purple. Season 2 gives him a much more distinct appearance along with being black and blue.
* ShockAndAwe: He is shown shooting lightning from his fingers in "Hong Kong Longs".
* SuperStrength: He is a dragon after all
* TakingYouWithMe: He tries to do this to Jake and [[spoiler: Rose]] at the end of "Hong Kong Longs" as he's about to become trapped in the temple.
* TemptingFate: In the series finale, upon defeating all of the world's dragons, he asks if there is anyone who could challenge him. [[spoiler: Rose]] heard him and was willing to accept the challenge.
%%* RedEyesTakeWarning: Look up at his picture.
%%* WeCanRuleTogether: His entire plan.

[[folder:Councilor Chang]]
->Voiced by: Creator/LaurenTom

A member of the Dragon Council; a dragon from Asia. Chang is harsh and cold when it comes to Jake. Unsurprisingly, she turns out to be a mole for The Dark Dragon, secretly aiding him in his plot to recruit Jake and overthrow the human race.
Tropes Associated With Councilor Chang:
* ArtShift: Got hit with this the most in season 2. She was originally a MiniatureSeniorCitizens about Jake's grandfather's height in her human form in the first season. The re-design suddenly cranked her to human height out of the blue.
%%* BreathWeapon
* CardboardPrison: She was sent to one after she was exposed as TheMole.
%%* TheDragon: To The Dark Dragon.
* LargeHam: "TISK, TISK Mister Long."
%%* MisanthropeSupreme
%%* TheMole
* ObviouslyEvil: Pretty much, tThe fact that in her first appearance, she's heavily biased against Jake during the Dragon Competition is an obvious clue.
** Her human self's season two redesign reeks of this, wearing a [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver black and red]] outfit, and having a pale purple skin tone.
%%* PsychoExGirlfriend: To Grandpa.
* PunyHumans: Her opinion on humans. Ironically in both season finale final battles it was a combination of humans and mystical creatures working together that beat both her and the Dark Dragon.
* UngratefulBitch: Despite Jake saving her (along with the rest of the Dragon Council) from the Huntsclan in "The Halloween Bash," she still tries to eliminate him whenever she gets the chance.
* VillainExitStageLeft: Well, more like ''fall offstage'', but it's obvious that her exit in "Hong Kong Longs" was meant to serve as both a defeat and to keep her for a third season (which never happened) where she possibly could have been the BigBad.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Her reason for joining the Dark Dragon is to ensure magical creatures rule the world as they did long ago, rather than live in hiding.

[[folder:Bananas B]]

The first ever "Hip Hop Helper Monkey", Bananas B takes over as Jake's Animal Guardian after Fu's license expires.
%%* DirtyCoward
%%* FaceHeelTurn

%%* TalkingAnimal
%%* TemporaryScrappy
%%* VillainExitStageLeft

[[folder:Professor Hans Rotwood]]
->Voiced by: Paul Rugg

A teacher at Jake's school, Rotwood believes in the Magical World (although his facts about magical creatures are inaccurate). His beliefs got him discredited as a scientist, and he now works as the principal of Jake's school. He has a strong dislike of Jake, namely for Jake's bad attitude.
* ButtMonkey: In "Ski Trip".
** IronButtMonkey
* EnemyMine: He and Jake make an alliance in "The Rotwood Files" to get Sigmund Brock fired. Later, they're forced to work together in "Magic Enemy #1".
* EvilTeacher: Played straight and subverted. In many episodes, it seems that his only purpose is to make Jake miserable and he wants to expose the Magical World to humans, but it is shown that he is not a true threat and even has a true respect for the Magical World.
* ManipulativeBastard: Sometimes, especially at the end of "The Rotwood Files".
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He's normally a ButtMonkey. Then we get "The Rotwood Files"...

%%* GorgeousGorgon
* SadlyMythtaken: Their [[MultipleChoicePast backstory]] [[JustifiedTrope notwithstanding]], Fury was known as "Stheno" in the original myths (but then again, how many people can pronounce that?). Additionally, reflective surfaces could ''not'' deflect the Gorgons' BrownNote.
