    The Computer

A Jerkass helper who Courage commonly goes to for advice on stopping the Big Bad of the episode. His advice for the most part works well, but his insults and sarcastic vibes gets contempt from Courage.

  • Deadpan Snarker: He never misses an opportunity for dry sarcasm or sardonicism.
  • Grand Theft Me: During "Mega Muriel the Magnificent", the Computer somehow gains the ability to upload his personality into a human body, and winds up possessing Muriel (he tried to possess Eustace first, but his body broke into pieces in the process).

    Ma Bagge 
Voiced by: Billie Lou Watt

Eustace's mother. Rather equally a Jerkass to her son as he is to Courage, she insults Eustace at every opportunity and as a contrast to her son she is nice to Courage. Occasionally she is the antagonist of a few episodes especially when it's something about helping with a company that helps with wigs.

    Charlie The Mouse 
A large delivery mouse who is apparently friends with Courage.

    Shirley the Medium 
Voiced by: Mary Testa

A gypsy chihuahua who is a witch and fortune-teller. She offers help or sells magical objects from her trailer. She is able to place curses on those who cross her (usually Eustace), and Courage has to go find her in order to reverse them.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: She is a green-furred dog.
  • Anti-Hero: She can be very helpful unless angered.
  • Berserk Button: Being rude to her and swindling her.
  • The Cassandra: She often outright warns Eustace not to do something, but he never listens. That's why her catchphrase is pretty much telling him I Told You So.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "The stupid one, he (insert action Eustace shouldn't have done here), yes?"
    • "The stupid one, he's stupid, yes?"
  • Deadpan Snarker: Toward Eustace.
  • Dogs Are Dumb: Inverted. She is rather intelligent.
  • Fortune Teller: Shirley the Medium is a witch and fortune-teller.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal: One of the few cartoon animals in the show to wear a full set of clothes.
  • Good Is Not Nice: She can be very helpful until she's provoked into cursing the offender.
  • Great Gazoo: A female chihuahua who serves as a mystical fortuneteller.
  • Gypsy Curse: Puts these on Eustace.
  • I Told You So: "The stupid one, he (something she warned Eustace not to do but he did anyway), yes?"
  • Karmic Trickster: She's normally a rather nice person when you stay on her good side, and often helps out Courage when he asks. However, if you're mean to her, she'll put a curse on you in a heartbeat, but she'll always leave a loophole for you to get out of them.
  • Seen It All: Nothing really seems to faze her and she often knows how to deal with a lot of supernatural things Courage faces.
  • Talking Animal: Unlike Courage, she always speaks in fluent English.

  • Adventurer Archaeologist: He found a cursed golden hat on a remote island.
  • Aloof Big Brother: As seen in a flashback, he didn't ever allow his "useless" younger brother to accompany him on hunting trips.

  • Posthumous Character: Although Eustace does contact Horst's soul in the afterlife through Shirley's seance ritual.
