    open/close all folders 

    The Computer 

Voiced by: Simon Prebble

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.

    Di Lung 
Voiced by: Tim Chi Ly

A guy of implied Chinese descent that makes small cameos in episodes where he almost runs into Courage (usually in his car) and says his catchphrase.
  • Ascended Extra: Went from being a background character to an occasional antagonist.
  • Brainy Brunette: Has dark hair and is seemingly very smart, able to invent serums which transform people into animals as well as a robot dog which can outperform a regular dog in practically every way.
  • Breakout Character: He was popular enough with the fans to get a few major roles in episodes.
  • Catchphrase: "Watch where you're going, ya foo'!"
  • Smarter Then He Looks: He's actually quite smart when you think that he was able to build things like Mecha-Courage or create magic potions (even if at first he failed at making what he wanted: a water buffalo). He was also a former student of the "Perfect" Teacher.

    Dr. Vindaloo 
Voiced by: Paul Schoeffler

Nowhere's resident doctor. Not very reliable.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: They usually cover his eyes completely.
  • Bollywood Nerd: Implied to be Indian.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "There is nothing I can do, nothing at all."
    • "There is nothing to worry about! But there is nothing I can do."
    • "Just keep soaking it!"
    • "What is up with that?"
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He's extremely absent-minded and incompetent.

    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.
  • Morality Pet: Seems to be this for her son Eustace. Ironically, since she's always mean to him.
  • Opaque Lenses: Much like everyone else in the series, her glasses completely obscure her eyes.
  • Pet the Dog: Sometimes she does show her nice side around Courage.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Later episodes after her first appearance seem to have her taking it out at Courage.

    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.
  • Good Is Not Nice: She can be very helpful until she's provoked into cursing the offender.
  • 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.

A recurring character. A short, bald man.

     Horst Bagge 
Eustace's deceased brother.
  • The Ace: He seemed to have been the best at everything, which he liked to rub in Eustace's face.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: He found a cursed golden hat on a remote island.
  • Always Someone Better: To Eustace. He was favored greatly by his parents, and was an explorer who bested Eustace at everything.
  • Big Brother Bully: He turned his little brother into an asshole like him.
  • Posthumous Character: Although Eustace does contact Horst's soul in the afterlife through Shirley's seance ritual.

    Officer/Professor/Captain/Pilot/Mayor/General/Park Ranger Frith 
Another recurring character. A Top-Heavy Guy with a square jaw and a large mustache, which is red or white, depending on what character he's playing in the episode.

    Parachute Lady 
Another recurring extra. A slim lady in a green jumpsuit.

    Nowhere Newsman 
The anchorman of Nowhere News. You'll know him as the guy who narrates the show's opening.
