Axe Cop (Axey Smartist)

Voiced by: Nick Offerman

Flute Cop (Flutey Smartist) / Dinosaur Soldier / Avocado Soldier / etc.

Voiced by: Ken Marino
  • Butt Monkey: He never stops transforming. Although many of these forms make him even more powerful, he never gets to use his true form, even when he tries. Even Axe Cop has stated that his best friend is Sockarang and not Flute Cop, who has been his sidekick since the first comic.
    • This is averted in the animated series, where he is not only still human, but married. Dinosaur Soldier and Avocado Soldier appear in one episode, but Flute Cop returns in the next episode.
  • Cool Shades
  • Everyone Calls Him Barkeep: Unlike Axe Cop, who actually has a real name, it seems that his name actually is Flute Cop.
    • This seems to have been a mistake in the early comic, as later on in "Ask Flute Cop" we more logically see his name given as Flutey Smartist.
  • Everything's Better With Dinosaurs: After becoming Dinosaur Soldier, and later as Dragtrighostacops Rex.
  • I Have Many Names: Due to his many transformations. The same character has gone by the names Flute Cop, Dinosaur Soldier, Avocado Soldier, Uni-Avocado Soldier, Ghost Cop, Drag-Tri-Ghostacops Rex, Viking Cop, Bear Cop, Zombie Bear Cop, President Zombie Bear Cop, Rat Cop...
  • The Lancer
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He's Axe Cop's brother, but they forgot after backing into each other.
  • Minored In Ass Kicking: His minor was in Criminal Justice. His major was in flute class. However, it appears that flute classes in the Axe Cop world involve learning how to fight with flutes.
  • Musical Assassin: While we've never seen him use his Flute Cop form in battle, his fighting style evidently involves him distracting people by blowing into his flute.
    • The animated series has shown Flute Cop making bad guys' heads explode by playing the recorder.
  • Only Sane Man: In the cartoon, he usually points out the bizarre leaps in logic in Axe Cop's plans.
  • Our Presidents Are Different: He became President of the United States by eating President Towzerd's brain. (He was a zombie bear at the time.)
  • Shapeshifter Default Form: Interestingly, in between storylines he seems to revert by unspecified means to a default form... but that form is Dinosaur Soldier, not his original form of Flute Cop.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: Dinosaur Soldier.
  • Somebody Set Up Us the Bomb: As Ghost Cop, his secret attack is to phase through his enemies and leave grenade bombs inside each one before they know what hit them.
  • Truly Single Parent: He has a baby named Wexey that he wished for with his unicorn powers.
    • Averted in the animated series, where he and his wife Anita are the adopted parents of Uni-Baby.
  • Unicorn: As Uni-Avocado Soldier.

The Best Fairy Ever

The Moon Warriors (Vampire Wolfer and Fire Slicer)

Lobster Man (Koko Mia)

Bat Warthog Man

Wolver Man

Gray Diamond

Voiced by: Rob Huebel
  • Ascended Extra: Originally Gray Diamond was just one of several superheroes featured in the story "Bat Warthog Man Can't Find His Friend" only, but the producers of the animated adaptation loved Rob Huebel's performance so much that they made him a series regular.
  • Captain Ersatz: Of Grey Matter from Ben 10.
  • Mad Scientist: Combined the surviving brain of his dead comrade Sergeant G with a lion's and a cheetah's.
  • My Brain Is Big: Inside the giant diamond on his head.
  • The Smart Guy

Gray Stone

Army Chihuahua

Chemist M

Voiced by: Peter Serafinowicz
  • Author Avatar: The M stands for Malachai.
  • Happiness in Slavery: Axe Cop bought him and he seems fine with it.
  • Multiple Choice Past: In the comic, he is an Author Avatar of Malachai, as stated above, who directly assists Axe Cop. He is an entirely different character in the animated series, where he is an aged English scientist (the smartest man in the world, no less) whose daughter, Isabella M, was held ransom by Adolf Hitler to force him to construct a zombie army for the Nazis long before the series' present day. (It isn't made clear whether this happened during World War II or some other time other than "a long time ago".) He has since become a zombie himself, but he was turned good by her daughter, who completed his secret work on a potion to turn zombies good.
  • Nerd Glasses
  • Science Hero
  • See the Invisible: The main reason Axe Cop needed him in the webcomic was to create a chemical that would let him do this.


  • Cyborg
  • Nineties Anti-Hero: His design is based on the art of Rob Liefeld.
  • Portmanteau: His name is one of 'lion' and 'cyborg'.
  • Was Once a Man: The result of Grey Diamond combining the remains of his deceased friend Sergeant G (actually Sergeant T, but Grey Diamond didn't know that) with parts from a lion, a cheetah, and a robot suit.

Fwinky Dog

Hypno Boy and Ultra Bat Boy (Sam and Max)

Water Queen

Axe Girl

  • Action Girl
  • Amicable Exes: While the two break off the engagement, she and Axe Cop still remain friends and vow to team up again some day.
  • Birds of a Feather: Deconstructed. It turns out she and Axe Cop's similar "All the time" shifts and personalites meant no one would be home to parent Sam and Max.
  • Distaff Counterpart

The Chief of the Normal Police


Voiced by: Todd Barry


Voiced by: Mike O'Malley
  • Catch Phrase: "...with my gun."
  • Dirty Cop: He plots to kill Axe Cop and Flute Cop because they're killing more bad guys than him.
  • Expy: Of Telescope Gun Cop from the comics, playing the role of a rival cop who is Axe Cop's first enemy. We see him playing with a Telescope Gun Cop action figure as a child.
  • Jerkass: Even as a child, he picks on Axey and Flutey for no real reason.
  • Rival Turned Evil
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: He constantly insists that the only way to kill bad guys is to simply shoot them with a gun. Axe Cop protests because he thinks it's too boring.
