Booster Sinclair Munchapper

Voiced by: Stephen Furst

Tropes associated with Booster:

  • Adorkable
  • Ascended Fanboy: Used to be a janitor at Star Command, who badly wanted to join the Space Rangers.
  • Beware the Nice Ones
  • The Big Guy: Addressed as such pretty regularly, too.
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Comedic Underwear Exposure: Three times in the series ("The Adventure Begins," "Beasts of Karn," and "Millennial Bugs") Booster's underwear has been exposed. He wears Tighty-Whities in two of the three episodes, but in "Millennial Bugs," he wore white Boxer Shorts with little planets on them.
  • Gentle Giant: Zurg addressed him as such in "Lost in Time".
  • Innocently Insensitive: Booster has had his moments where although he means well, he doesn't always realize the consequences his actions have on others.
    • In "Wirewolf", for example, he doesn't pick up on Ty's sarcasm after Buzz saves him from NOS-4-A2.
    Ty: "Oh, would you? I'm sure they can't wait to hear how BUZZ saved me again. Make that call, PLEASE."
    Booster: "Right away, sir!" (He goes to call Star Command)
    Ty: (He blinks and does a Face Palm) Sarcasm is lost on the big one.
  • One-Man Army
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to XR's Manly Man.
  • Shy Finger Twiddling: Prone to this, when nervous.
  • The Call Put Me On Hold: He wanted to be a ranger so badly, he just never managed to pass the exam.
  • Turn the Other Cheek

    Major Villains 

Evil Emperor Zurg

Voiced by: Wayne Knight

Tropes associated with Zurg:

  • Badass Cape: Reaches down to the floor.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: As hammy as he can be, Zurg can match Buzz in a fight and his plans frequently endanger the galaxy.
  • BFG: If needed, Zurg can whip out the Ion Blaster at a given moment.
  • Big Bad: Of the series.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Again, Evil Emperor Zurg.
  • Catch Phrase: "CURSE YOU, BUZZ LIGHTYEAR!"
  • Cold Ham: Occasionally dips into this, usually when he's pissed. And it's pretty terrifying.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Hidden is right, since we never see his face.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Zurg has some very fond memories of his Nana Zurg, who was plenty evil as well.
  • Evil Overlord: Right there in the name.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He's as dramatic as they get.
  • Evil Is Petty: Yup. When Buzz was making a final speech, Zurg called up a camera crew to film it.
  • Expressive Mask: His Darth Vader-esque mouthpiece moves is as fluid and expressive as an actual mouth, and the eyeholes commonly blink and change expression. It helps make his hammy posturing even more over the top.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: If particularly angry, Zurg's eyes glow a brighter shade of red.
  • The Man Behind the Man: He built Nos-4-A2, had Gravitina attack a planet in her first appearance, reactivated XL, and had his scientists give Torque his power.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: At least twice, Buzz's paranoia over Zurg has lead to him making really out there theories about how current events are part of his plot, and Buzz has been proven right.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Has this opinion about his minions. Which, in fairness, is pretty true.
  • You Have Failed Me: Lampshaded.
    Warp: Don't you have a strict "Failure means death" policy?
    Zurg: Normally, yes.

Warp Darkmatter/Agent Z

Tropes associated with NOS-4-A2:


Tropes associated with XL:

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: The reason why he was deactivated by Star Command. He was violent and crazy from the start.
  • Big Brother Bully: To XR, both figuratively and literally.
  • Cain and Abel: to XR
  • Cardboard Prison: Lampshaded when one of the buttons on his arm is labelled "Break Out of Prison."
    XR: No wonder he keeps escaping.
  • Evil Counterpart: Again, to XR.
  • Genius Ditz: He can build some impressive devices and even come up with some impressive plans, but he's otherwise an idiot.
  • Heel-Face Turn: After narrowly avoiding betrayal from NOS-4-A2, he ends up returning to Star Command. His body is remade into a robot printer and he acts as a second robot "son" to Commander Nebula, much to Nebula's exasperation.
  • Oh Crap!: In "Revenge of the Monsters", when he realizes that he's reaching the point where NOS-4-A2 will no longer need him.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Like XR, he wants to prove his worth to Commander Nebula, but in an evil "You were wrong about me" way.


Voiced by: Brad Garrett

Tropes associated with Torque:

  • Badass Longcoat
  • Brainwashing for the Greater Good: He ends up in a prison that was attempting to do this. He manages to use the brainwashing device on Buzz to turn him evil. When XR is tasked with fixing Buzz and has trouble reaching him, he uses the device on one of the Torques, giving him Buzz Lightyear's personality and resulting in him saving the day.
  • Expendable Clone: One Torque always survives, but it isn't uncommon for the others to get completely disintegrated.
  • Expy: For Lobo.
  • Extra Eyes: He has five of them.
  • Fingerless Gloves: He wears them, as shown in the pic.
  • Me's a Crowd: Zurg painfully integrates him with a device that allows him to create copies of himself.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Has an extra pair of arms, which he usually hides under his jacket for surprise attacks.

Tropes associated with Gravitina:

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: After Buzz kept rejecting her, she tried to hook up with Evil Buzz from the Alternate Universe, but he was just using her.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: The Gravity Master has a super-huge head, and the powers apparently stem from the head being so big.
  • Butter Face: She's a Ms. Fanservice except for her oversized cranium.
  • Dating Catwoman: Has an unrequited crush on Buzz Lightyear, and once bestows her powers on him to try and get him to reciprocate.
  • Freudian Excuse: Gravitina is a villain because she's been driven mad by people harassing her about her oversized head and involuntary expressions of power.
  • Gravity Master: The Mistress of Mass, and all of its attractions. She can control gravity waves, hence the name.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Blue-skinned, actually, and quite attractive if you overlook the grossly oversized, spherical cranium.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Metaphorically phrased her plan to destroy Star Command as this when Buzz said that the "other woman" in his heart was Star Command.
  • My Brain Is Big: Gravitina's head is ridiculously round and swollen — it even has its own personal ring to further the resemblance to a planetoid.
  • Power Incontinence: Gravitina can't fully control her powers, and has a tendency to accidentally "pick up" things with her natural gravitational field. The negative reactions this engendered, combined with the teasing over her oversized head, are what drove her to villainy.
