-->Voiced by: Francis Matthews
Real Name: Paul Metcalfe. Spectrum's primary agent. Captain Scarlet was killed shortly after the Mysterons' declaration of war and was reconstructed by them to serve as one of their agents. However events led to him being freed from their control and now being virtually indestructible, he became Spectrum's greatest asset in their fight against the Mysterons.
* BringMyRedJacket: Wears red and frequently receives fatal injuries.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: His puppet and voice was based on Creator/CaryGrant.
* CloningBlues: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] - it never really comes up, and his colleagues seem to treat him as the "original" Scarlet with no trouble. Played with in the CGI remake. Scarlet witnesses a replicant's construction and angsts over his state. A pep talk from Blue snaps him out of it.
* DeathIsCheap: Even in situations that would normally kill an ordinary person, he manages to recover.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Fatal wounds heal completely in just a few hours.
* HeelFaceTurn: It's easy to forget that this isn't the ''original'' Captain Scarlet and is instead a mysterious replicant tool of the enemy, who turned against his creators. Of course, since he has the original's memories and for all intents and purposes ''is'' him, from his own perspective it's probably more like having had a brief, mind-controlled FaceHeelTurn.
* PhlebotinumRebel: Having being reconstructed by the Mysterons and then freed from their control.
* RedIsHeroic: He wears red and is a brave and reliable man.

Discovering the Mysteron's complex, he mistook their scanner for a weapon and opened fire, leading to the Mysterons declaring war against the Earth, taking him over to serve as their primary agent.

* RedRightHand: His eyes are glazed, making him look even more cold and remorseless.
* TheWoobie: He didn't ask to be turned against his friends and comrades any more that Scarlet did; it's just that the latter got the lucky escape that he didn't. It does leave the way open for him to be rehabilitated in the same way.
