     The Bravest Warriors 

The Warriors as a Whole

Chris Kirkman

Voiced By Alex Walsh (series) and Charlie Schlatter (pilot)
The Bravest Warriors' good natured and courageous, if sometimes just a bit too emotional, leader.

  • Anime Hair: Granted, it's not as extreme as other cases, but it's still noticeable.
  • Bee Bee Gun: While its combat applications seem limited compared to the others' animals, it's not useless.
    Chris: Bumblebee storm TO THE EYEBALLS!
  • Cannot Spit It Out: With Beth.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Blue
  • Future Me Scares Me: While Chris isn't "scared" of the Emotion Lord, per-say, it takes until the end of "Lavarinth" for him to accept that the he and the Emotion Lord are one in the same.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: In the comics story "Dating Pool" he sees Beth flirting with another guy. Triggering his emotion lord powers.....
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold
  • The Hero
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: A lightning sword in the pilot, a Honeycomb Sword in the series proper.
  • Manly Tears: Sheds these sometimes.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In the comics after Trashing the dating pool with his emotion lord powers due to seeing Beth flirt with another guy, then thrashing the guy with Danny's beard. Not to mention letting the villain of the week get away.
  • Never Bareheaded: Chris is never seen when his gloves off.
    • We finally see him without his gloves in "Merewif Tag" when Plum switches body with Chris and she takes his gloves off.
  • Nice Guy
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: When he switches bodies with Plum in "Merewif Tag" he looks right past her bosom. He was more fascinated with her "Clappy little pig hands."
  • Oblivious to Love: Ironically in "Merewif Tag", when he and Plum switches bodies, he gets a lot of attention from a bunch of male merwifs and tries to give one of them Plum's phone number. When Plum tells him not to give her number away, Chris ensures her that they want to hang out as friends.
  • Pretty Fly for a White Guy: "Jive-Ass Peach Pit!"
  • A Taste of Power: Played With .He gets his emotion lord powers for a brief period, but all he gets is X-Ray Vision before Plum removes the peach pit giving him the powers

    • He uses his powers again in "Ultra Wankershim" to see a vision of the future.
    • In the comics story "The Dating Pool" (Originally meant to be episode 3 of season 2) he learns he can read minds. He also trashes the place when he sees Beth flirting with someone else.
  • The Team Normal: Alone out of the team, he doesn't really seem to have any shown proficiency in science. However, he is an Emotion Lord, so he's way more powerful than the rest of his team.
  • White Male Lead
  • Why Did It Have to be Cows

Danny Vasquez

Voiced by John Omohundro (series) and Rob Paulsen (pilot)
The Bravest Warriors' moody technical whiz whose giant ego masks a deep-seated self-loathing.

Beth Tezuka

Voiced by Liliana Mumy (series) and Tara Strong (pilot)
The slightly spacey, yet quite intelligent, member of the Bravest Warriors.

  • Action Girl
  • All Girls Like Ponies: She owns a horse that she loves very much, despite the fact that it's been paralyzed for years and entirely aware of it. Her Butter Lettuce simulation also has unicorns...dressed as Chippendales Dancers.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: According to production art, she's a threat to all life and is entirely unaware of it. "Hamster Priest" begins to hint at it in series, with Beth having some sort of connection to the Seethough Zone that her father has been exploiting
  • Bi the Way: In the comics, apparently. She goes looking for people to smooch and ends up getting smooched by both Wallow and a female assassin who was sent to kill them.
  • Cloudcuckoolander
  • The Chick: Lampshaded in "Memory Donk"
  • Color-Coded Characters: Green
  • Covert Pervert: If her Butter Lettuce simulation is anything to go by.
  • Innocently Insensitive: She acted like this to Danny, who was dealing with Jelly Kid's death, in "Jelly Kid Forever".
  • Meganekko: Only part of the time, as she wears contacts on missions.
  • Oblivious to Love: Is almost completely unaware of Chris' crush on her. Justified as Chris himself isn't willing to admit it to anyone, especially Beth.
    • Subverted in Season 2, where she seems to be in the same sort of denial Chris is.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only female member of the main cast in the cartoon. Averted in the comic.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Butter lettuce. That she stores a rather sexually-charged "butter lettuce fantasy" in the Holo-John makes one wonder if it goes past a mere favorite food, however...
  • Whip It Good: Her Cat Lashes.


Voiced by Ian Jones-Quartey (series) and Dan Finnerty (pilot)
The Bravest Warriors' kindhearted and level-headed medic.



Voiced by Michael-Leon Wooley
A rainbow colored bear with a mustache and one of Wallow's pets.


Voiced by Sam Lavagnino
A cross between a cat and a ladybug that lives with the Bravest Warriors.

  • Ascended Extra: Has appeared in every episode of Season 2 so far after hardly appearing in Season 1.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Upon being given an electric razor.
    • And he is part cat, as evidenced when it's revealed he beheaded Jelly Kid.
  • Breakout Character: Good god yes. Normally all the fun little side characters were just one-shot characters appearing in their respective episodes. Catbug, meanwhile, has went on to assume unofficial mascot status.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Comes out of literally nowhere to save Beth in the Season 2 premiere.
  • Cat Smile: His default expression.
  • Cheerful Child: Not in appearance, but definitely in personality. It helps that he's voiced by one.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: In "Catbug's Away Team", Catbug foregoes his original mission in favor of helping every individual native he possibly can.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: Ripped Jelly Kid's head off for no reason and was cheerfully remorseless about it over breakfast.
  • Cone of Shame: Dons one at Jelly Kid's funeral. This might mean he's been neutered in order to suppress the animal aggressiveness that led him to kill Jelly Kid.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: Due to being voiced by a 6 year old, he has some pronunciation issues.
  • Dimensional Traveler: He lives in two separate dimensions that he can jump back and forth between, though Catbug himself doesn't seem to know how he does it or how to control it.
    • It's implied in "Dimension Garden" that it's because he was born in the See-Through Zone.
  • Large Ham: His voice actor is 6, so he's hammy in the sense only little kids are. He even does his own soap opera (which are usually hammy), doubling the amount of Ham.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: Physically, a humanoid blue cat with ladybug wings.
    • As a baby, he has the form of an insectoid larva, was discovered in the same garden as the Aeon Worm, and his massive, slimy pupal form seems to indicate relation to the Aeon Worm, explaining his dimension-jumping.
  • No Indoor Voice: Again, his voice actor is 6, so he has a child's level of volume control.
  • Older than They Look: Despite what his short size and 6-year-old voice might indicate, he's actually 10 years old (potentially older, depending on his larval lifespan).
  • Once an Episode: In Season 2, he shows up at least once every episode, even if he has nothing to do with the plot. Subverted with "The Puppetyville Horror" the first episode of the season he dose't show up in.
  • Reality Ensues: In "Jelly Kid Forever", he gruesomely kills Jelly Kid to "catch him for Danny" and is rather cheerful about it the next morning, reminding us that as cute as he may be, he's still part-cat.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Mix-and-Match Critter of two cute animals with the voice and personality of a Cheerful Child? You betcha.

  • Our Monsters Are Weird: Well Aliens at any rate, but still, a toast making jelly monster is pretty weird.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Jelly Kid Noooo!"
  • Ungrateful Bastard: No matter how nice Danny is to him, he always ditches him.

A crazy old man who, as is typical for an Emotion Lord, can bend time and space to his will. He's also a 200-year old Chris from the future.

  • Batman Gambit: Uses a complicated one in "Gas-Powered Stick" he gives Impossibear the titular stick then when Impossibear later tires of it and throws it, it turns into a tree with a peach which Chris eats, with its pit lodging itself in Chris' head, giving Chris his Emotion Lord powers.

  • Ambiguously Bi: She is not above making out with her double in the comics.
  • Ascended Extra: In the comics, appearing in the first two arcs and in Season Two of the show from "Mexican Touchdown" onwards.
    • Demoted to Extra: Stopped appearing in the comic regularly after the first two arcs, though she finally came back in issue 14 of the comic.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Sweet, if somewhat overly honest and out of sorts with the Warriors way of doing things, but in only two apperances thus far she's been the only being to rattle The Emotion Lord at all and gone One-Winged Angel, easily defeating the villain of the week.
  • Brutal Honesty: Tells Danny she's not attracted to him at all in "Mexican Touchdown" after he spends an entire episode getting himself horribly maimed to impress her.
  • Dude Magnet: Gets all of the guys' attention.
  • Gender Bender: Briefly and inexplicably becomes male in "Hamster Priest".

  • Our Mermaids Are Different: She's a merwif, a race of aliens who have a lot of similarities to mermaids. She can switch between your standard mermaid tail while in water and a pair of legs while on land.
    • She can also Transform into a multitenticaled, memory erasing, One-Winged Angel form. Though as it turns out, that is due to her being part memory donk
  • Painting the Medium: Her second personality's text is done in an old fashioned font in the comics.
  • Pet the Dog: After rejecting Danny and seeing him suicidally rush forward due to "not having any reason to live anymore", she leaps in to save him with her One-Winged Angel form, erases his memory of her doing it, then gives him all the credit for the victory.
  • The Pollyanna: She's extremely cheerful and so far has only been anything but twice: when Impossibear whacks her legs with his Gas-Powered Stick for no reason and when she glares at the Emotion Lord.
    • Although, that second one may have been her other personality...
  • Punny Name: Her name might or might not be a play on "Plumb the Depths"... more likely, it's just to do with her purple colour scheme.
  • Running Gag: Guys noticing her "clappy little pig hands", which she responds with an annoyed expression.
  • Sharing a Body: With the ancient personality contained in her second brain.
  • Sixth Ranger
  • Spare Body Parts: Has two brains, each containing a different personality.

  • Walking Spoiler: Not so much his worship of the Aeon Worm but the fact he's Beth's father and the main villain of season 2.

The Aeon Worm

A horrifying Eldritch Abomination that was imprisoned in the See Though Zone. Ralph Waldo Picklechips is currently trying to free it.

An insane gigantic alien who can take control of other people's bodies.

  • Eldritch Abomination: Resembles one, what with his possession related abilities and general look.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: He's lonely from years of isolation and wants to make friends, but he doesn't realize that capturing people and controlling them isn't the best way to do so.

  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was exiled to an isolated asteroid the warriors stopped to pee on, due to being a threat to the universe.
