Austin Danger Powers
"Shagadelic, baby!"
Played By: Mike Myers
Voiced By: Herman López [base voice, Mexican Spanish]; also Juan Carlos Moreno (first Mexican Spanish dub), Ariel Abadi and Pablo Gandolfo (Argentinian Spanish dubs), Enzo Fortuny (young, Goldmember), Salvador Delgado (cinematographic version, Goldmember)

The main character, he's a spy for British Intelligence who battles his Arch-Enemy Dr. Evil across time to stop his plans to destroy/Take Over the World. Otherwise, he lives for partying, sexual exploration and the typical hipster lifestyle of the sixties.

  • Above the Influence: In the first film, Austin, for all his womanizing, turns down a kiss from Vanessa because she's drunk.
  • The Ace: He's a crack shot, a master martial artist, and saving the world is his day job.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Austin Danger Powers. Admit it, that's a ridiculously awesome name.
  • Berserk Button: Austin lost it when Dr. Evil killed Felicity. She got better, though.
  • British Teeth: Has an unhygienic set of buck teeth. Vanessa tries to get him to use toothpaste.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Austin parodies James Bond by being very strange and silly. But at the end of the day, he is still a master spy and Action Hero.
  • Butt-Monkey: Austin is often on the receiving end of being embarrassed.
    • Iron Butt Monkey: He takes quite a few severe beatings throughout the series but never suffers any major injury.
  • Carpet of Virility: Austin's ridiculously hairy chest, which women improbably seem to love.
  • Cartwright Curse: Vanessa is revealed to be a fembot to re-bachelor Austin at the beginning of the second movie with little recognition from the characters, and Felicity just disappears.
  • The Casanova: No woman can resist his charms, not even robot women.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Groovy, baby," "Yeah, baby, yeah," "Very shagadelic," "What do you say, (woman's name)? Shall we shag now, or shag later?" and "Oh, behave."
  • Chivalrous Pervert / Even Swingers Have Standards: While he is a sex maniac, he doesn't take advantage of drunk or married women. The latter of which is especially hard for him, since he was genuinely in love with Vanessa's mother.
  • Comically Missing the Point: His knowledge of the 60s is rendered useless in the present day.
  • The Dandy
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Said In-Universe by Austin in regards to his father writing off Austin's quite legitimate complaints about his parenting skills with a joke.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Aside from the Above the Influence example shown above, Austin never went beyond harmless flirting with Vanessa's mother, despite being deeply attracted to her, because she was already married.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Mostly downplayed, but there is a scene in the first movie showing him trying to get to grips with modern technology (such as attempting to play a CD on a record player), and offering the peace sign to some strangers, which only makes them laugh at him.
  • Groin Attack:
    • Inflicts one on Random Task with the Swedish penis pump.
    • Austin is often prone to being on the end of these. In the end of the first film he front flips into his car but crotches himself on the gear shift. This is made worse when Vanessa accidentally pulls the gear shft further into his crotch by accident. In their first fight Mini Me kicks him while he is on his knees and bites him. In the third film during their brief second fight, Mini me kicks him again, this time to escape from Austin's bashing his head in with a drawer.
  • Fetal Position Rebirth: Upon being defrosted in 1997.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: His Union Jack underpants. Yeah.
  • Human Popsicle: In the first film, to be un-thawed when Dr. Evil returns.
  • I Call Him Mr Happy: bits and pieces, wedding tackle, meat and two veg, little lads.
  • Hurricane of Puns: Usually once per film, to the point of Overly Long Gag.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Women fawn over him as the sexiest, most desirable man in the world. While Mike Meyers is not an ugly man, his costume and make-up as Austin make him quite repulsive.
  • It's Personal: In the second film: "First he fought for the Crown, now he's fighting for the family jewels!" Dr. Evil takes his desire to get revenge against the International Man of Mystery one step too far and steals Austin's mojo, leaving Austin impotent. This blow below the belt (literally) motivates Austin throughout the film, furious that Dr. Evil would stoop that low and cause him to suffer erectile dysfunction.
  • Kavorka Man: Whatever womanizing charms Austin is supposed to have in-universe aren't made very clear, since he is sub-par in looks and often obnoxious and annoying in personality.
  • The Loins Sleep Tonight: In the second film, Austin suffers "performance issues." When Dr. Evil's spy, Fat Bastard, steals Austin's precious mojo (libido/sex drive) in 1969, Austin suddenly goes limp in the middle of sex with Ivana Humpalot and becomes impotent in 1999. He then travels back to 1969 to save himself from perpetual erectile dysfunction by retrieving his stolen mojo. His need to retrieve his mojo only intensifies when he falls in love with Felicity Shagwell, an American hippie/CIA agent, who idolizes the International Man of Mystery. Her interest in shagging Austin only increases his desire to regain his sexual performance.
  • Loveable Sex Maniac: He's silly and zany and loves shagging.
  • Mr. Fanservice: To all the women in the movies.
  • Naked People Are Funny: Has no problems walking around nude in public. Usually with his naughty bits blocked from view by strategically placed objects.
  • Nice Guy: Friendly and jovial with everyone (unless they're evil). He is also apparently quite heroic and caring willing to give up his wondrous life in order to save the future from Dr. Evil
  • Not So Above It All: His suaveness and charm can go right out the window when he's really attracted to someone, causing him to lust after them as much as women usually lust after him.
  • Parody Sue: Of secret agents in general.
  • Parental Neglect: He accuses his father of this in the Goldmember song "Daddy Wasn't There."
  • Sealed Good in a Can: When he was frozen.
  • Sex God: No woman can resist him, and they fall in line for a chance to share a bed with him.
  • Specs of Awesome: Austin is an Action Hero who wears spectacles.
  • Twin Threesome Fantasy: With the Japanese girls from the third film.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: His character arc in the third film. For all he's done in life, even being knighted by the queen, his father is neglectful and doesn't respect him.

Austin's Female Sidekicks

Mrs. Kensington, her daughter Vanessa (after Austin travels from 1967 to 1997 by means of cryonic freezing), Felicity Shagwell and Foxxy Cleopatra.
Parodies of "Bond girls" who usually disappear from the face of the Earth after just one movie. Played respectively by Mimi Rogers, Elizabeth Hurley, Heather Graham and Beyoncé.

Vanessa Kensington
Played By: Elizabeth Hurley
Voiced By: Yolanda Vidal and Gabriela Gómez (Mexican Spanish dub), Lucila Gómez (Argentinian Spanish dubs).

Felicity Shagwell
Played By: Heather Graham
Voiced By: Carola Vásquez (Mexican Spanish dub)

  • Action Girl: Though not as much as Vanesa, Felicity is still an ass-kicker in her own right.
  • Bare Your Midriff: In a couple of her outfits.
  • Berserk Button: Hurting Austin or calling her crap in bed. For both reasons she kicked Fat Bastard in the pills
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She disappears in between the second and third films without explanation.
    • All There in the Manual: The guide to the series explains she left Austin after realising he hadn't gotten over Vanessa.
  • Distaff Counterpart: In some ways, she's a female version of Austin. She even has a female symbol medallion to co-ordinate with Austin's male symbol one.
  • Girl of the Week: While Vanessa was written out, come the third film Felicity has simply vanished, and Austin never even mentions her.
  • Groin Attack: She inflicts one on Fat Bastard when she kicks him in the "mommy-daddy button" near the end of the second film, causing Austin to lecture her:
    Austin: I don't care if he is evil, you don't give a man a shot in the pills. It's just not cricket, baby!
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Felicity is one of the sweeter sidekicks that Austin has, and is definitely the most playful. She also has long blond hair.
  • Hero-Worshipper: She idolizes Austin and became a spy after learning about his exploits.
  • Heroic Seductress: She charms Fat Bastard into bed with her in order to plant a tracking device on him.
  • Male Gaze: Her initial introduction in the second film.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her outfits are very skimpy and show a lot of skin. Being as she's trying to seduce Austin from minute one, this is intentional.
  • Punny Name: "Shagwell by name, shag very well by reputation."
  • Put on a Bus: No mention of her is made in the third movie. However, at the end of the second film, there were two Austins. She probably went away with one of them.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: Her Weapon of Choice.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Wears one mid-film to try and seduce Austin, prompting him to squeeze a bottle of massage oil so hard it squirts out.

  • She's Got Legs: Which a lot of her outfits show off.
  • Shout-Out: She has hair like Barbarella.
  • Show Some Leg: She shows a guard her bare breasts, luring him into the deathtrap she and Austin were placed in.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: When she mocks Austin for losing his mojo. As Austin himself says "ouch baby, major ouch"
  • Who Wears Short Shorts: She wears a pair of skin-tight shorts for her first few scenes.

Foxxy Cleopatra
Played By: Beyoncé
Voiced By: Diana Pérez (Mexican Spanish dub)

Nigel Powers

Played By: Michael Caine
Voiced By: Humberto Vélez (Mexican Spanish dub)

Austin's father, he is also a master spy and a sexual dynamo. However, he is an absolutely awful father who neglected Austin after the death of his wife left him to raise his son alone.

  • The Casanova: Like Austin, he is a charming womanizer. Notable in that unlike Mike Meyers as Austin, Michael Caine's make-up does not hide his good looks and it's believable woman would desire him.
  • Hypocrite: The two things he dislikes the most are people who are intolerant of other cultures, and the Dutch!
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He let Austin down twice at the Academy and the Knighting Ceremony.
    Austin: (when he hears that Nigel was kidnapped) Oh! So, that's why my father wasn't at the Knighting Ceremony.
    Basil: Actually, he was kidnapped AFTER you were knighted.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Reveals to Austin that Dr. Evil is his brother Doug.
  • Papa Wolf: He truly does love his son and will do anything to protect him. Both of them, in fact.

Basil Exposition

Played By: Michael York, Eddie Adams (younger)
Voiced By: Gabriel Pingarrón [base voice, Mexican Spanish]; Miguel Ángel Sanromán (first Mexican Spanish dub), Gerardo Reyero (second Mexican Spanish dub), Gabriel Ramos (young, Goldmember)

Austin's literal Mr. Exposition, his contact in the British government who provides him intelligence data about Dr. Evil.

  • Captain Obvious: Which causes Austin to say "Whoop-de-do, Basil."
  • Catch-Phrase: When asked "What's happening, Basil?", he would reply "A lot has been happening."
  • The Comically Serious: Typically serves as the comedic foil to Austin and other characters in most of his scenes.
  • Meaningful Name: Basil Exposition provides exposition.
  • Mr. Exposition: Literally.
    • The original script (and some deleted scenes) for the first film really ran with this, having Basil describe every little detail whenever he appeared.
  • Only Sane Man: He recognizes how strange and annoying Austin can be, and occasionally tells him so.
  • Punny Name

Mrs. Kensington

Played By: Mimi Rogers
Voiced By: María Eugenia Guerrero (first Mexican Spanish dub), Diana Pérez (second Mexican Spanish dub), Matilde Ávila (Argentinian Spanish dub)

Austin's original sidekick, who did not come forward in time with him.

Number Three / The Mole

Played By: Fred Savage
Voiced By: Rene García

  • Adorkable: Comes off as this for trying ever so hard to pretend not to notice all the attention drawn to his mole. Especially when pointing out that he's aware of the irony of the guy with the mole being The Mole.
  • Gross-Up Close-Up: His mole.
  • The Mole: In multiple senses of the word. And he's aware of the irony.


Dr. Evil
"One million dollars!"
Played By: Mike Myers
Voiced By: Alfonso Obregón Inclán (all Mexican Spanish dubs), Pablo Gandolfo (Argentinian Spanish dubs), Moisés Iván Mora (young, Mexicn Spanish dub)

Austin's Arch-Enemy, he's the head of Virtucon, a multinational MegaCorp that acts as a front for his evil schemes. His goal is always to use some sort of superweapon to hold the world hostage for money. He's completely Genre Blind and generally acts like a complete idiot that even his henchmen can't take seriously.

  • Abusive Parents: Dr. Evil's ridiculously traumatic upbringing. He likewise is one to Scott, though it seems to flip-flop regarding the situation. In the third movie, Mini-Me gets a taste of this.
  • Affably Evil: He's very humorous, tries very hard to be a Doting Parent and very Adorkable; in spite of being a Card-Carrying Villain.
  • Austin, I Am Your Father: Played for Laughs in the second film, Dr. Evil makes this claim, then says he can't back it up. Played straight in the third film, when he's revealed as Austin's long-lost brother, Dougie.
  • Bald of Evil: Seems to be a side-effect of being evil, since Scott starts going bald when he embraces evil like his father.
  • Berserk Button: Don't insult Scott or Mini-Me. Or upset Mr. Bigglesworth.
  • Big Bad: In all three films.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: One of his defining traits; repeatedly lampshaded throughout the series.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: At the end of Goldmember, Dr. Evil says "Yeah, baby!" Everyone stares blankly at him, and he adds: "No? Just trying it on."
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He is a perfect homage to his trope. Just look at his name for starters.
  • The Casanova: After drinking Austin's mojo, he absorbs his sexual prowess and seductive skills, and manages to seduce Frau.
  • Character Tic: His distinctive "raise-pinkie-finger-to-mouth-level" gesture, as well as his generous use of Air Quotes when explaining his Evil Plans.
  • Contractual Genre Blindness: Dr. Evil plays every villain trope he can just for the sake of doing it and is aware that it's expected of the villain, but is either unaware of or refuses to acknowledge that such acts are Bond Villain Stupidity. In the first film, he exercises No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Dine, and when Scott asks Why Don't Ya Just Shoot Him?, Dr. Evil mutters that Scott "just doesn't get it."
  • Genius Ditz: His character generally exists to make fun of how stupid villains in spy movies are. While he demonstrates that he is indeed a bona fide scientific genius as he invents time-machines, death rays and other fantastical inventions, he shows a complete lack of common sense when it comes to things like not killing his nemesis when he has the chance or not mistreating his key underlings and compelling them to betray him. He also had trouble understanding basic economics and zoology amongst other subjects, and he speaks neither French nor Dutch despite being raised on the Dutch side of Belgium.
  • Everybody Has Standards: Ironically. He has no qualms with taking over the world or just outright destroying it (at least until the ending of Austin Powers in Goldmember), but when he meets Goldmember, the eponymous villain of the third movie, even he was disturbed by him and his actions ("How about 'No!,' you crazy Dutch bastard!"), though less because Goldmember was too evil and more because of his disgusting habits like eating his own skin flakes. He's also disturbed when Scott lets his Evil Laugh get away with him when he had Mr. Roboto eaten by laser sharks.
  • Evil Eyebrows
  • Evil Laugh: He loves giving these after dramatic moments and holding them out for long periods of time.
  • Exotic Equipment: He is a polyorchid( three testicles).
  • Expy: He's a parody of classic Bond villain Ernst Stavros Blofeld, down to the scar, the suit and the cat.
  • Freudian Excuse: Played for Laughs. He was raised by Belgians, who raised him to be evil.
  • Groin Attack- During a presentation Mini Me accidentally sends a meteor globe into his testicles. He checks his balls revealing he has three. When he was 14, a zoroastrian woman named Vilma ritualistically shaved his scrotum.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the third film.
  • Human Popsicle: Like Austin, in the first film. He apparently does this again at the end of the first film, but is already un-thawed when the second begins.
  • I Call Him Mr Happy- His right testicle he named Piss, the left he named Vinegar. When he suffers the groin attack he uses the common slang "balls."
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be evil, but he does care about his son, despite their complex relationship.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: He explicitly mentions that he spent six years in Evil Medical School after someone calls him Mr. Evil.
  • Papa Wolf: He is very protective of both Scott and Mini-Me.
  • Precision F-Strike: Dr. Evil's response to being caught in the first act, before even getting started on his Evil Plan, is simply "...shit."
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He is an evil genius bent on World Domination, but he is also prone to petulant temper tantrums and childish insults, embraces Cartoonish Supervillainy to the point of self-sabotaging his own schemes, and breaks out into Villain Songs when the mood takes him.
  • The Reveal: He's Nigel Powers' son and Austin's brother.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: When he was frozen.
  • Unstoppable Rage: After a Klansman calls Scott Evil a "freak" on The Jerry Springer Show, he goes ballistic. He ends up fighting even when being restrained by Steve Wilkos and the other members of security, and after seemingly calming down, he then rushes to attack him again (something that never happens on Jerry Springer). And then instigates a full-out brawl on the set. Eventually, he seems calmed down...until Jerry Springer tells security to get Dr. Evil out of the premises ("get this jerk out of here"), upon which his rage is reawakened and he starts fighting with Springer, eventually managing to smash a globe in the ensuing stage riot.
  • Where Did I Go Wrong?: He asks this about Scott.
  • You Have Failed Me: He punishes his minions by dumping them through a trapdoor to be burned alive. When he tries it again in the '90s, the unfortunate Mook is left alive but "very badly burned," and is finally dispatched by another Mook with poor aim. His botched execution is Played for Laughs.


Played By: Verne Troyer
Voiced By: Arturo Mercado (Mexican Spanish dub)

A 1/8th-size clone of Dr. Evil created in the second film, he becomes a surrogate son for him, though at times Dr. Evil treats him more as a pet.

  • Bald of Evil: Just like the original.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: Mini-Me is ejected out into space unprotected in the second movie and survives completely unharmed.
  • Big Little Man: His initial introduction in the second film.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's sent flying around a lot when fighting Austin.
    • Iron Butt Monkey: Is often physically abused in horrific fashion, but is Made of Iron. In the third film, he's thrown in a sack and beaten around walls and furniture, but climbs out with no apparent injuries when let go.
  • Cloning Blues: Defied; he never shows any problems being a clone of Dr. Evil and loves him like a father. That is, until he's replaced by Dr. Evil's son Scott.
  • The Dragon: To Dr. Evil.
  • Groin Attack: He is prone to doing this. In the second film, he kicks and bites Austin in his junk, and in the third film, he accidentally sends a model meteor right into Dr. Evil's testicles. Way to go, A-Hole!
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the third film, in response to becoming The Unfavorite to Scott.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: He pretends to surrender to Austin in the second movie to gain the upper hand. This comes back to bite him in the third movie when he defects for real and Austin, having not been informed, won't stop fighting him until he's down.
  • Jerk Ass: He likes to flip people off and play cruel jokes on Scott.
  • Man Bites Man: A lot of biting is integrated into his fighting style.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: As shown in the second film when he gives Austin a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on the moon. He even lifts Austin over his head and tosses him across a hallway with little visible effort.
  • Toilet Humor: What he does to avoid suspicion in the third movie.
  • The Voiceless: He doesn't talk apart from saying "Eeee!" and in the "Just the Two Of Us" song in the second film, he lip-syncs "You and I" in a very deep voice.

Scott Evil

Played By: Seth Green
Voiced By: José Antonio Macías (base voice, Mexican Spanish), Luis Daniel Ramírez (second Mexican dub)

Dr. Evil's son, created from his semen while he was frozen. Scott is entirely different from his father, foremost being that he's intelligent and realizes his father's schemes are a stupid waste of time. His efforts to explain this to Dr. Evil only result in insults and brow-beating, so he resigns himself instead to mocking his father and enjoying watching him fail.

  • Awesome Mc Coolname
  • Bald of Evil: When he decides to become evil in the third film, his hair falls out.
  • Butt-Monkey: Often on the receiving end of Dr. Evil's verbal abuse.
  • Catch-Phrase: "I hate you". Most often directed at Dr. Evil.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Very deadpan in response to his father.
  • The Dragon: Finally usurps Mini-Me in this role in the third film.
    • Dragon Ascendant: The ending implies that with Dr. Evil turning good, Scott has taken control of his evil empire to continue fighting Austin.
  • Girly Run: In the third film he runs out of a scene flailing his arms and legs. Dr. Evil immediately lampshades this trope to the rest of the cast present.
  • Jerkass: Somewhat depending on the situation.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: The second film reveals he's actually Dr. Evil's love child with Frau.
  • Meta Guy: In that he points out why Dr. Evil's plans are stupid and asks why he's not going with something more pragmatic and likely to succeed.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: He is not the idiot his father is—he is aware that Austin will escape his death traps, that Dr. Evil should just cut to the chase and kill Austin when he has the chance, and that his plans will blow up in his face. In the first film, he States the Simple Solution when his father places Austin in a Death Trap, offering to get his own gun from his room and kill Austin himself, but is shut down.
  • Only Sane Man: To an extent, him and Number Two. However, while Number Two is silently exasperated with Dr. Evil's idiocy, Scott is open in calling his father an inept moron with stupid plans.
  • Stupid Evil: His savvy aspect decreases in the third film when he turns evil.
  • The Unfavorite: After Mini-Me comes into the picture, he gets this from Dr. Evil.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Zigzagged. In the first film, he hates Dr. Evil, having been raised by Frau and never knowing his father, and rejects his father's attempts to bond. In the second film, he tries to bury the hatchet and make amends, but Dr. Evil has Mini-Me at that point, the son he always wanted. In the third film, his turn to evil finally gets him Dr. Evil's respect, but then Dr. Evil performs a Heel–Face Turn and Scott declares his hatred for him again.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Tries to get his father to go along with this line of thinking, to no avail.

Number Two

Played By: Robert Wagner, Rob Lowe (young)
Voiced By: Jorge Lapuente, René García (young) (Mexican Spanish dub)

Dr. Evil's second-in-command until he gets Mini-Me, he was left in charge of the evil empire while Dr. Evil was frozen. Number Two is a brilliant and savvy businessman who is able to build up successful multi-million dollar empires, but finds their assets squandered by Dr. Evil's schemes. He tries unsuccessfully to convince his employer he'd be better off just running a normal business and living the life of a legitimate businessman rather than a supervillain, but is repeatedly shut down.

  • Beleaguered Assistant: Oh so much.
  • Broken Pedestal: 30 years without his boss seems to have taken away the friendship and hero worship he had for Dr. Evil.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Pretty much the only way he copes with his boss.
  • Cut Lex Luthor a Check: He cares more for the success of the company than the schemes of Dr. Evil. He tries to betray him in the first film when he realizes a Stupid Evil man like Dr. Evil cannot thrive in the business world, but Dr. Evil attempts to kill him instead. From the second film on he tries to convince Dr. Evil to give up the supervillain life, since his perfectly legal public companies make him a comfortable millionaire, if only he would just stop squandering the money on schemes to take over the world.
  • The Dragon: To Dr. Evil. While Mini-Me becomes his right-hand in the third film, Number Two is still central to his plans.
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • To Vanessa in International Man of Mystery. Like her with Austin, his primary role is to acclimate Dr. Evil to life in the 90's and try to point out that his views on evil are a bit outdated. Dr. Evil only occasionally listens.
    • Also one to Basil across the series. Like Basil, he's Dr. Evil's adviser who gives him information about his plans and realizes how ridiculous Austin and Dr. Evil are. However, Austin usually appreciates Basil's help while Dr. Evil ignores and insults Number Two.
  • Expy: To Emilio Largo from Thunderball, Blofeld's dragon who wears an Eyepatch of Power.
  • Eyepatch of Power: It hides an x-ray device in the first film.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Along with Dr. Evil, he turns good at the end of the third film.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: To Dr. Evil.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: The main reason why Number Two attempted to betray Dr. Evil was because he was nearly ruining his business after he returned.
  • Professional Butt-Kisser: He's been like this to Dr. Evil since the Academy.
  • Punny Name: He's a literal Number Two to the Number One, Dr. Evil.
    Austin: (when he is about to kill Paddy O'Brien, shoving his head into a toilet and making him drown in the water)) Who does Number Two work for?
  • Sarcastic Devotee: He tries to be loyal during the first movie, and his older self barely appears in the second. By Goldmember, he's basically given up on Dr. Evil.
  • The Smart Guy: He single-handedly builds up the corporates that fund Dr. Evil's projects.
  • The Starscream: Attempted it near the end of the first movie but forgot about the booby-trapped chairs.
  • Screw Yourself: In the deleted scenes of the second film with his younger self. Complete with...
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Retroactively; his thirty years-younger self from The Spy Who Shagged Me is noticeably more loyal to Dr. Evil than his older self.
  • Unexplained Recovery: He is apparently killed at the end of the original film when Dr. Evil drops him into a fire pit. However, he returns for the sequels with almost no injuries.
  • Villainous Friendship: The third movie reveals that the two met in Spy School and have been allies since then, though granted "friendship" is probably stretching things a bit.

Frau Farbissina

Played By: Mindy Sterling
Voiced By: Magda Giner (Latin American Spanish dubs)

Founder of the militant wing of the Salvation Army.

  • The Ageless: From 1967 to 1997, Frau's appearance doesn't change while Mustafa gets a lot grayer. Lampshaded in The Spy Who Shagged Me. while Number Two looks much younger in 1969, Frau again looks the exact same.
    Dr. Evil: Thank you, Number Two. You look so healthy and youthful. (snip) And Frau! You look so... (sees she hasn't aged down at all) riiiight.
  • Almighty Janitor: Downplayed as she is a high-ranking member of Dr. Evil's organization, but still applies as despite her Undying Loyalty to him, she is probably the only one Dr. Evil is actually intimidated by and completely, unconditionally respects. Probably because they have feelings for each other.
  • The Baroness: The Rosa Klebb type. She's a spoof of her, as a matter of fact.
  • Evil Genius
  • Expy: One of the Rosa Klebb-type The Baroness figures, namely Klebb and Irma Bunt, who is German and looks after the Fembots, the equivalent of the Angels of Death from On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
  • Gratuitous German
  • Heel–Face Turn: Along with Dr. Evil, she turns good at the end of the third film.
  • Mama Bear: Don't try to harm Scott in front of her. Both Mini-Me and Doctor Evil found that out the hard way. Later, it turns out she really is Scott's mom.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: She reveals to Scott in the second film he isn't a test tube baby, but her child with Dr. Evil.
  • No Indoor Voice
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: Her trademark. "Send in the Fem-BOTS!!"
  • Villainous Friendship: One of the very few members of Dr Evil's organization he never once considers executing or turning on- a list that includes is right-hand man No. 2, his clone Mini-Me, and his own son Scott, whom she is fiercely protective of. In the second film they even become lovers, and it turns out she is protective of Scott because she is his mother.

Fat Bastard

Played By: Mike Myers
Voiced By: Eduardo Borja (Spy who Shagged Me, Mexican dub), Rubén Cerda (Goldmember, Mexican dub)

Premiering in the second film, Fat Bastard is not generally a core part of Doctor Evil's organization, but is hired to take out Austin.

  • Big Eater: He has a buffet by his bedside while sleeping with Felicity.
  • The Brute: Takes over Random Task's role in the second film.
  • Casanova Wannabe
  • Catch-Phrase: "I'm dead sexy."
  • Eats Babies: Fat Bastard once ate a baby. And then he tries to eat Mini-Me because he looks like a baby.
  • Establishing Character Moment: "First thing's first!"..."WHERE'S YOUR SHITTER?" "I've got a real turtlehead pokin' out!"
  • Fat and Proud: Subverted. He refers to himself as being "dead sexy", but he's very unhappy with his weight.
  • Fat Bastard: The Trope Namer.
  • Fan Disservice:
    • In the second movie, where he sleeps with Felicity. Send the Brain Bleach!
    • In the third, when he becomes a Sumo wrestler.
  • Formerly Fat: Thanks to the Subway diet, although he has excess skin from losing so much weight and his neck looks like a vagina.
  • Freudian Excuse: He alludes to being bullied and mocked for his weight as a child, and in his depression and loneliness turned to eating, creating a vicious cycle. Subverted when his acknowledgement of this problem becomes an Ignored Epiphany, and he remains a Jerkass in the third film. He repeats the sob story there, implying he uses this trope to justify his behavior.
  • Gass Hole: Is a fountain of Toilet Humor and a massive jerk.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He stops being evil at the end of the third film and loses all his weight thanks to his Subway diet.
  • Groin Attack:
    • Felicity kicks him in the crotch when he tries to shoot her and Austin, claiming she did it because he said she was crap in bed. He groans and refers to that area as the "mommy-daddy button".
    • In Goldmember during his entrance as a Sumo wrestler, he groans complains that the "diaper" makes his nuts rub together. During his match he inflicts this on his opponent with a squeeze.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: See Eats Babies.
  • Psycho for Hire
  • Violent Glaswegian: He's got red hair and a thick accent, and wears a tartan sumo uniform. He's also a minion of Dr. Evil who Eats Babies and fights very dirty in the sumo ring.
  • Wire Fu: He tries using this attack in the third film, to the point of being visibly held up by wires and calling attention to the people in the background holding him up. Unfortunately, one of the wires breaks halfway through and he's just left dangling in the air.

Another relic from the past that Doctor Evil decides to recruit to help his goals. He invented a tractor beam with the power to pull a solid gold meteor to strike the polar ice caps, flooding the earth.

  • Ambiguously Gay: He seems a lot more interested in male characters such as Nigel Powers and Dr. Evil, calling them "toite", than his own cadre of Bodyguard Babes. Dr. Evil thinks it's creepy.
  • Autocannibalism: When he isn't collecting it in a box, Goldmember enjoys eating pieces of his own skin.
  • Big Bad: Of the third film. He initially acts as a Big Bad Ensemble with Dr. Evil, then becomes the sole villain in the climax.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Even compared to the likes of Dr. Evil and Austin, Goldmember is weird. He peels flakes of skin off and either eats them or adds them to his collection, is prone to randomly quoting songs and movies and then muttering the creator as an aside, he likes to offer random combinations of breakfast and tobacco items to any guests he might be entertaining and loves disco dancing at random.
  • Dirty Old Man
  • Disability Superpower: His smelting accident, and likely the loss of feeling in his groin, apparently lets him lift his legs absurdly high. His trademark attack is lifting them high enough to kick over his shoulder, which makes it hard to take the guy hostage from behind.
  • Funny Foreigner: "I'm from Holland! Isn't that vierd?"
  • Gag Penis: His penis is implied to be covered in solid gold. In the climax, it turns out he can unscrew it and use it as a spare key to his tractor beam.
  • Gratuitous German: Gets a few German lines despite being Dutch.
  • Groin Attack: His trademark is to paint the genitals of the agents he captures gold. He also tries to subject Nigel to the same "unfortunate smelting accident" that he fell victim to.
  • Loves Only Gold: Like the character he parodies, he loves gooooold. To the point where he has gold decor, gold clothing, and even a gold... ahem.
  • Meaningful Name: He lost his genitalia in "an unfortunate smelting accident".
  • Shout-Out: You get two guesses.

  • Iron Butt Monkey: It takes more than a trapdoor and flamethrowers to kill him.
  • Kukris Are Kool
  • Nice Hat: A fez.
  • Rasputinian Death: In the first film, he gets thrown down a trapdoor and burned alive, and then shot in the arm, and then killed with another shot.
    • In the second film, he's shot with a poison dart, then falls down a cliff, breaks both legs, and hurts them even more trying to stand up. His pain still continues in The Stinger.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: If asked the same question three times in a row, he will be compelled to answer, since it "irritates" him.
