open/close all folders
Danny Fenton/Danny Phantom
"It's been a month since the accident and I still barely have any control. If somebody catches me, I go from geek to freak around here!"
Main hero of the series: Upon obtaining his ghost powers through a Freak Lab Accident
, 14-year old Danny uses it to combat the various ghosts that inhabit his hometown
. He starts off shy, naive, Book Dumb
, and emotional, constantly trying to find a place in the world, whether it be gaining popularity or through his ghost powers. By the end of the series, Danny gains confidence, courage, and matures
considerably and finds his path as a hero.
- Adorkable: Has shades of this with his clumsiness, shyness and other parts of his personality.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: For the most part, subverted. In one episode, though, he had to annoy Jazz in order to show her Youngblood, whom is only seen by kids.
- Berserk Button: Don't call him a loser. Then again there's plenty you shouldn't do. Don't insult his father, don't endanger his friends and don't threaten the Opposite-Sex Clone that he treats like family.
- Danny's eyes glow green uncontrollably if his berserk button is so much as touched, much less pushed.
- Although they glow brighter when he's more annoyed, like in Fanning the Flames.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Sure, he's normally outgoing, friendly and fun, but you make an attempt at anyone he cares about, and he'll take you down.
- Big Brother Instinct/ Big Brother Mentor: To Danielle. In "Kindred Spirits" he's rather untrusting of her at first (for good reason) but when he learns what she is and she defects from Vlad he starts to become this. By "D-Stablized" he fits this to a T; her safety becomes his top priority, even ignoring the possibility Valerie saw him transform to save Danielle.
- Book Dumb: Shows a great deal of ingenuity and quick thinking in battles, but is constantly failing in school and other practical areas of knowledge. Though to be fair, ghost fighting seriously cuts into his study time.
- Butt Monkey: Not as much as Tucker, but he still finds himself in the receiving end of much laughter.
- Can't Get In Trouble For Nuthin': The only reason Danny ever overshadows people, aside from information gathering.
- Chest Insignia: Gets one in Season 2.
- Childhood Friend Romance: With Sam.
- Clark Kenting: Different eye and hair color and a barely noticeable shift in skin tone is the only thing that disguises him as Danny Phantom. He doesn't even change his voice. It's lampshaded by several of the more Dangerously Genre Savvy villains like Vlad and Dark Danny.
- Combo Platter Powers: Flight, intangibility, energy blasts, possession, the ability to sense other ghosts, and later on the ability to duplicate himself and manipulate ice.
- Comes Great Responsibility: Part of being Expy of Peter Parker, he takes responsibility for any ghost-related harm that befalls Amity Park.
- Cool Loser: A classic one, as per usual of teen superheroes; Danny is outgoing, funny, dresses normally, acts normally, is intelligent (although lazy and, as previously mentioned, Book Dumb), and as far as you can tell with the art style, fairly attractive. His only real problems include being a bit awkward with girls and ending up in strange situations in public due to his superhero activity. Yet, for some reason, the entire school seems to treat him like the nerd plague. It could be because Sam and Tucker are highly unpopular, but in real life, he would certainly have more than just two friends, even if he does hang out with two "weird" kids....There are also his parents to be considered.
- Deadpan Snarker: Danny frequently responds to most situations with sarcasm.
- Death by Origin Story: The show wouldn't work at all if Danny weren't a phantom. Then again, he's not really dead, he's just drawn that way.
- Due to the odd Never Say "Die" quality of the show, its never made completely clear if he did "kinda-sorta" die or not — a lot of ghosts are heavily implied to have died, but others seem more like alternate-dimension monsters that were never alive at all. All we really know about Danny is that he's now a hybrid that's half-human and half-ghost, whose DNA was suffused with ectoplasm.
- Dream Walker: Through overshadowing.
- Elemental Eye Colors: When ghostly, Danny's eyes change from green to Icy Blue when using his ice powers.
- Expy: for Peter Parker/Spider-Man, both are outcasts who were bullied in school and obtained their powers through a scientific accident.
- Eye Color Change: His human side has blue eyes, his ghostly Super Hero alter ego has green eyes, but whenever he turns evil (either Brainwashed and Crazy or as his evil alternate-future self) his eyes turn red.
- Flying Brick: Can fly really fast and capable of great super strength.
- Freak Lab Accident: Danny gained his powers when checking out his parents' prototype ghost portal.
- The Grinch: Due to his parents arguing over whether or not Santa exists and ruining the celebrations every year. He gets over it by the end of "Fright Before Christmas".
- Hand Blast: His most often used power.
- Hazmat Suit: What he wore prior to becoming half ghost. His suit in ghost form is that same suit only with value tones reversed.
- Heartbroken Badass: During the climax of "Fanning the Flames", due to Ember's love spell between him and Sam.
- End of "Flirting with Disaster" when Valerie breaks up with him, ironically to hunt Danny Phantom.
- Henshin Hero: From human to ghost form.
- The Hero: Being the title character.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: Not so much at first because he was unknown, but after "Public Enemies"? His parents were also never thrilled with Phantom's existence either.
- How Do I Shot Web?: In the beginning of the show he displays a lot more trouble accessing and using his powers than later on. We also see this in "Memory Blank", where he has to relearn his abilities.
- An Ice Person: In Season 3 he gains ice powers.
- Kaleidoscope Eyes
- Kid Hero: He's only fourteen years old and apparently the only heroic ghost in the world.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: The Ghostly Wail, from "The Ultimate Enemy" onward.
- My Sister Is Off-Limits!: Played straight in "13" when Johnny 13 tries using Jazz to bring his girlfriend into the human world.
- New Super Power: His ice breath.
- Nice Guy: Outside of people who intentionally try to harm or his loved ones, Danny tries to be nice around others.
- No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: It's bad enough that half the time people blame his ghost identity for things other ghosts have done, but other times, he gets in trouble as a human too.
- Only Friend: By the end of the series, he's the only member of his family to know of Danielle's existence, which may play a part in why he becomes protective of her.
- Ordinary High-School Student: He was one of these before gaining his powers, and during the brief periods he's Brought Down to Normal.
- Painful Transformation: Danny gaining or losing his powers has him screaming in agony.
- Part Time Hero: Like most teenage superheroes.
- Power Dyes Your Hair: His hair goes from being black to white, but otherwise stays the same.
- Puberty Superpower: Played with. He does gain his powers around the correct time, and it's used as part of his coming of age story, but they came from a freak lab accident rather than actual puberty.
- Mildly lampshaded in "The Ultimate Enemy." After being trapped in the future and bound for his enemies to attack, he yells at them to stop... only to activate the "Ghostly Wail", the main new power Dark Dan has. He even mentions he is going through "evil puberty".
- Screw Destiny: In "The Ultimate Enemy", refusing to let his bad future come to pass.
- Self-Duplication: Has trouble with this power at first, but by "Torrent of Terror" he's able to use it flawlessly.
- She Is Not My Girlfriend: In regards to Sam. At least until the final episode.
- Shonen Hair: Even if he gets helmet hair, changing forms will revert it back to this.
- Skunk Stripe: In the Season 3 Finale he gains one when he loses his powers.
- The Snark Knight: Makes jokes even during serious moments.
- This Loser Is You: Danny, to move the plot, almost all time prior to learning his Aesop at the end of an episode (only to forget it by the next), serves to show how much teenagers suck, i.e. blowing off his homework, stuffing his face with corndogs, calling everything lame or crud, playing mindless video games, acting like a jerk, wanting to make-out with the Romantic False Lead, perpetually being a C-student, etc. He gets better though.
- That Thing Is Not My Cousin: Averted. Danny started out suspicious of Danielle, but after learning what she is, he accepts her and becomes a surrogate big brother to her.
- Triple Shifter: 14 year old teenager infused with ectoplasm that can turn into a ghostly superhero... and plenty of sleep lost.
- What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Unlike other ghost hunters, Danny has no interest in destroying his enemies and there are some he at least tries to befriend. He's also capable of knowing not all ghosts are evil. As for his clones, it's played straight with the more mindless ones but averted with Danielle, as by the time he found out he had already started to grow fond of her and accepted her as family.
- Will They or Won't They?: With Sam. They Do in the finale.
- Would Hurt a Child: Danny doesn't seem to have a problem scrapping with his underage nemesis Youngblood. Averted though when Danielle was still technically his enemy, as she was fooled into helping Vlad.
Samantha "Sam" Manson
"Parents don't listen. Even worse, they don't understand. Why can't they accept me for who I am!?"
Danny's childhood friend and primary love interest: Sam is a strict vegetarian Goth
with an often contradictory personality; she's as rational and levelheaded as she is forceful and selfish. She strives to protect the environment as much as she rebels against her parents. She often keeps Danny (and Tucker) from doing anything too extreme.
- Action Survivor: Despite all she does through, she manages to survive many of the ghost attacks.
- Badass Normal: Capable of holding her own even without powers.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her standard outfit has a shirt short enough to show her belly button.
- Berserk Button: Do not threaten her friends, especially Danny. Paulina almost learned this the hard way in "Parental Bonding".
- Characterization Marches On: In Million Dollar Ghost, she was exhausted from bicycling, but in Micro Management, she's one of the most physically fit kids in school.
- Childhood Friend Romance: With Danny.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Doesn't like seeing Danny with other girls.
- Deadpan Snarker: Moreso than Danny.
- Does Not Like Spam: Or any kind of meat for that matter.
- First Girl Wins: Hooks up with Danny in the finale.
- Goth: Has all the trappings of one, but seems to do so out of a desire to be unique and rebel from her parents rather than fully embracing the style. Veers between the grim and perky variety at will.
- Granola Girl: Is a vegetarian and, in spite of her family being wealthy, thrift.
- He Is Not My Boyfriend: In regards to Danny. At least until the final episode.
- Hypocrite: She says she opposes violence yet is fine with hitting her friends, namely Tucker, even when it isn't needed. She despises forcing beliefs and opinions on to others yet forced the entire school to eat her "recyclable organic matter" because "we don't need meat". She scolds Danny for using his ghost powers against powerless school bullies yet she's okay with causing millions of dollars in property damage to a dealership because they were selling eco-unfriendly trucks. She spied on Danny during his date with Valerie in "Flirting with Disaster", yet when he spied on her during a date with a new student in "Double Cross My Heart", she gets angry and threatens to end their friendship.
- Informed Judaism: She's Jewish, not that this really comes up anywhere except the Christmas episode.
- Interspecies Romance: Considering Danny is a ghost hybrid, it's pretty obvious that this trope is in effect here.
- The Lady's Favour: In the finale "Phantom Planet", Sam gives Danny a ring that was used in an earlier episode "Flirting With Disaster".
- Odd Friendship: With Tucker.
- Never My Fault: Sam tends to not to take responsibility for her actions. No matter how much she is at fault, she never admits its her fault. She never even admits she's wrong.
- Perky Goth: Kind of.
- Purple Eyes: Ironically, neither of her parents have them.
- Secretly Wealthy: Her family is filthy rich, but she didn't want to be treated differently because of it.
- The Snark Knight: Just as much as Danny, only with more dry humor.
- Soapbox Sadie: She's the character in the title page's image.
- Spoiled Sweet: "Sweet" isn't the right word to describe Sam, but she's not as spoiled as the other rich girls.
- Tomboyish Name: Hates being called "Samantha".
- Uptown Girl: Her family is richer than Danny's.
- Will They or Won't They?: With Danny. They Do in the finale.
Rickey D'Shon Collins
"Some people have a lot and some people don't, but everybody's got something. Me? I got charms, good looks, and modesty."
Danny's childhood friend "since forever"
, Tucker is a Techno Geek
who considers himself God's gift not only to women, but to all humankind
- Action Survivor: Like Sam, despite being less capable in a fight than her.
- Black Best Friend: For Danny and Sam, being the third of their trio.
- Black and Nerdy: And proud to be the latter.
- Book Dumb: Despite how intelligent he's shown to be, when changing his grades, it's revealed most of them are D's and F's.
- Big Eater: Will eat anything, except vegetables.
- Butt Monkey: He's dumped on quite a lot and has saved Danny more than once and yet, he only gets thanked once and it's a "thanks for being my friend" that Danny throws out to Sam as well. Although it's heartfelt, the execution of how that came about feels rather tacked on and awkward. Later seasons have him either virtually ignored or usually getting victimized.
- It becomes part of the plot in "What You Want" when Tucker, after routinely getting pummeled every time Danny ditches him to save the world, wishes for ghost powers.
- Expy: Of Steve Urkel from Family Matters, only without the annoying nasal voice.
- Extraverted Nerd: In spite of being a geek, Tucker is very outgoing.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Tucker can do almost anything with a computer.
- I Just Want to Be Special: Although in the series finale, he becomes the youngest mayor of Amity Park.
- Nice Hat: A backwards red cap.
- Odd Friendship: With Sam.
- Plucky Comic Relief: Sees himself as one, though Danny and Sam seem to think otherwise.
- Proud to Be a Geek: At first he hates being called "nerd" and "techno geek", but eventually he accepts it.
- Real Men Eat Meat: His dietary habits are obsessed with it, to the point of eating little else.
- Real Men Wear Pink: In a Freeze-Frame Bonus when he's changing his grades, it shows that the only A he has is in "sewing".
- He was shown to have an A in computers as well. But the rest were a C,D, and two Fs.
- Rival Turned Evil: In "What You Want" when he wishes to have ghost powers, but he gets better.
- Shipper on Deck: While everyone was aware of things between Danny and Sam, it was most obvious with Tucker.
- Small Name, Big Ego: He loves to talk about how he has charm, good looks and modesty.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Meat, lots of it.
"16, biologically, but psychologically, I'm an adult."
Danny's older sister is a intelligent 16-year old who claims to be an adult trapped in a teenager's body. As such she's often playing a parental
role towards her entire family: trying to lead her parents into normality and shielding a then unsure Danny from the harsh realities of the outside world. After finding out ghosts are indeed real and Danny's Secret Identity
, she slowly gains admiration for her growing brother and eventually becomes part of "Team Phantom". She eventually lets down her shield and slowly starts to act her age, all the while happily acknowledging her love for ghosts — at several times, becoming a Badass Bookworm
- Academic Alpha Bitch: Before Character Development, she considered herself too good for her family because of how intelligent or mature she was.
- Annoying Older Sibling: Danny sees her as this sometimes.
- Badass Bookworm: She's more book smart than her brother and has more common sense than her parents, but she's just as capable as them in battle.
- Berserk Button: Even if Danny is the one with powers, don't mess with her little brother, or her Bearbert Einstein teddy.
- Big Sister Insinct: She cares dearly for Danny and would do anything for him. The latter is proven once she learns about Danny's secret.
- Companion Cube: When she was younger, she had Bearbert Einstein.
- Cool Big Sis: Eventually becomes this for Danny once she learns his secret.
- Emo Teen: Started out as one. Though it wasn't exactly Emo, per say. More along the lines of "Annoyed with her parents' constant love for ghosts".
- Giver of Lame Names: When she was trying to be more active in fighting ghosts, she tries giving her own names to them. Best example, she called Skulker "Ghost X".
- Hidden Depths: Several, but notable for being hinted at but followed up is her revealing that deep down she's resentful of all the attention her parents give to ghosts, as well as her brother being able to be a part of that - she gets a Not So Different moment with Freakshow when they both are shown to have "Ghost Envy."
- Fiery Redhead: Can be this if you push her too far.
- Nice Girl: Becomes one after Character Development.
- Not So Above It All: Ghost hunting in general or acting her actual age. In one episode, while Danny and her mom were off on a trip together (really just another ploy by Vlad to get Maddie), she bonded with Jack a lot and really got into the ghost hunting. It translated after it was revealed to Danny that she knew his secret and joined him in his ghost hunting.
- Promotion to Parent: How she saw herself before learning Danny's secret and starting to get along with her parents more.
- Parental Substitute: She thinks she's more capable of taking care of Danny than their parents, mostly because their fascination for ghosts.
- Secret Secret Keeper: From "My Brother's Keeper" through "The Ultimate Enemy," afterwards she becomes a regular Secret Keeper.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: How her relationship with Danny started out until "The Ultimate Enemy".
- Temporarily a Villain: In "Secret Weapons" to get back at Danny for snapping at her for her unwanted help. Though she was faking it.
- The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Jack isn't exactly ugly, but Jazz is definitely more fit than her father.
"See why I need to hunt these ghosts? They think they can do whatever they want, but somebody has to stop them."
: Valerie started off as the Rich Bitch
before a ghost dog (with Danny in tow) cost her father his job, forcing her to lead a poor, unpopular existence. She was given advanced ghost weapons from Vlad Masters
by mail and used them to extract her revenge. She eventually makes it a full time job
with Danny Phantom as her primary target. She grows to see the world beyond her once shallow view and eventually develops a romantic interest
with Danny Fenton, unaware of his alter ego.
- Aborted Arc: It's obvious they meant to wrap up her story-line with Vlad more neatly, but thanks to the sudden cancellation, not so much. She just gets a little mention in Phantom Planet.
- Action Girl: Valerie makes it her life's work to take out any ghost she comes across.., especially the Ghost Boy.
- Anti-Hero: She begins her ghost career specifically to get revenge on the ghosts she held responsible for her ruined life. Her actions start to become more noble in time, but many of her deep seated prejudices remain.
- Badass Normal: Even without her ghost hunting tech, she's a ninth degree black belt.
- Big Beautiful Woman: She is a very curvy young lady, and is rather lovely.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: A 14-year old who knows ninth degree martial arts.
- Dating Catwoman: She had a relationship with Danny as a human, unaware of his ghost nature.
- Demoted to Extra: Frequently appeared in Season One and Two, playing as the series' main Anti-Hero, then seemingly disappeared in Season Three until the second-to-last episode, then later made a small, speechless cameo in the Grand Finale. And her story arc wasn't even completed yet!
- Enemy Mine: Due to her Anti-Hero status, she has teamed up with Danny on occasions against greater threat or because the circumstances forced them to do so.
- Fallen Princess: Her family was originally very well off.
- Fantastic Racism: She hates ghosts and believes they're Always Chaotic Evil.
- Heel Realization: In "D-Stabilized", she finally realizes that she's been working with Vlad.
- The Huntress: Hunts down and captures ghosts.
- Hartman Hips: More noticeable when in her battle suit.
- Knight Templar: Thinks all ghosts are evil.
- Loves My Alter Ego: Inverted. She likes Danny Fenton. Phantom, not so much. Amusingly, this makes her the opposite of Paulina, who loves Phantom and hates his human self.
- Meaningful Name: Gray—as in, morally gray.
- Never My Fault: In her second appearance, she tries to pull this on Danny when they get captured by Skullker. But Danny calls her out on it.
- Sassy Black Woman
- Took a Level in Kindness: While Valerie never got over her grudge with Danny Phantom, she abandoned her Alpha Bitch view of the world, going from looking down at Danny, to becoming his genuine friend, to his actual girlfriend. And her ghost hunting which began as an outlet of vengeance for her ruined life, into a genuine desire to protect others.
- Unwitting Pawn: Of Vlad, who provided her with her ghost-hunting equipment.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: She genuinely thinks Danny Phantom is evil.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Believes herself to fill the role in the story that Danny does, a teenage superhero with too much on their plate and a screwy home life that they have to deal with while saving people from dangerous monsters. In reality, she's the antihero rival.
Voiced by: S. Scott Bullock
Standard issue bullying jock who on the outside is the typical menacing antagonist in Danny's school while deep inside, he portrays a far more sensitive soul, used mostly for laughs.
- Abhorrent Admirer: To Jazz. In fact, she had a nightmare where she was married to him.
- The Bully: And he knows it!
- Expy: For Flash Thompson: they're both Jerk Jocks who bully their protagonist while at the same time being the biggest fan of his superhero alter ego.
- Genre Savvy: See below.
- Jerkass: Bullies Danny, Sam, and Tucker on a daily basis.
- Jerk Jock: There's somewhat of a twist on this trope in that despite acting up to the Jerk Jock stereotype, he is also strangely Genre Savvy as to the future of most fictional Jerk Jocks, as he casually makes references to high school being the peak of his life and having to face a future of pumping gas.
- Pet the Dog: He does have a soft side for music, this is seen in "Doctor's Disorders" where he's watching a music video when he expresses his love for the music of a singer who clearly based on Better Milder.
- Not to mention, shielding Danny, Sam, and Tucker, after his identity was revealed to the world.
- Younger Than He Looks: Dash can be passed off for a college freshman through he's the same as Danny.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Calls himself "King of Casper High". Although, as shown above, he knows full well his future is far from great.
- Villainous Crush: He has a couple, one on Jazz and another on Paulina (to their dismay).
A girl Danny held a crush on before he wised up and moved on. She's the standard issue Alpha Bitch
and like all stereotypes like her, tends to victimize the less popular girls and focus primary on shallow mannerisms. She harbors a crush on Danny Phantom.
- Alpha Bitch: The most popular girl in school and loves to rub it in people's faces.
- Bare Your Midriff: Always shows her naval.

- Ms. Fanservice

- Spoiled Brat: Having a father that can rent out a country club for her birthday.
Voiced by: Dat Phan and James Sie
Dash's best friend and fellow jock, who while having jerk jock tendencies is a lot nicer then Dash and the other popular kids.
Paulina's best friend.
- Love Interest: An on-and-off interest for Tucker, Depending on the Writer.
- Implied Love Interest: "Frightmare" suggests Danny has or had a crush on her, despite how vocal she was about disliking him.
- Pair the Spares: Occasionally is seen dating Kwan.
- Satellite Character: Lampshaded. She mostly hangs around with Paulina to maintain some popularity. Though in "Flirting with Disaster", she's friends with Valerie despite her not being popular herself anymore.
The primary teacher (and vice-principal) of Casper High. Often strict with an inability to connect with his students, Mr. Lancer may seem like a bullying mentor to Danny (at times, he will often favor Dash simply because he's a popular football player), but deep down, he wants all his students to succeed.
- Hair Today Gone Tomorrow: He used to have hair when he was younger, but ended up bald.
- Hidden Depths: He loves playing online games.
- Ink-Suit Actor: He does sort of look like a cartoonish Ron Perlman with a shaved head and goatee.

- Lampshaded when he wonders why no one ever figures it out.

- Stern Teacher: He does this all the time, but one particular episode states that he's doing this job to meet up with his sister. Then it's subverted as he then asks why no one realizes it's him in a dress.
- Totally Radical: When trying to sound hip, he pulls out a slang dictionary and appears to pick words at random.
- Unusual Euphemism: Uses book titles that fit the situation.
"I am not a villain; all I wanted was love."

. His other goal is to convince
Danny to join his side
as his surrogate son due to their similar natures
(that Danny often denies) and powers.

"I am Freakshow, your master of ceremonies."
The ringmaster of Circus Gothica. Real name is Frederick Isaak Showenhower. He traveled the country with his Goth circus, though it was really a cover. The performers, save for his assistant Lydia, were ghosts under the control his staff. He used his staff make them steal from the towns they visited. He's also the only human in the series to be a genuine villain.

- Big Bad: Of the third TV Movie "Reality Trip".

- Fatal Flaw: His flair for the dramatic. He had Danny dead to rights, but deliberately gave him a chance to win simply because making him watch as his family died was "boring".

- Not So Different: Has a moment where he and Jazz admit to having "Ghost Envy", as in feeling everyone around cares more about ghosts than him.

- The Dragon: To Freakshow.
- Not Brainwashed: Unlike Freakshow's other minions, she doesn't flee when his scepter is broken and continues to serve him even without the scepter present.
- Tattooed Crook: Taken to the logical extreme; her tattoos are weapons.
- Undying Loyalty: She's furious when Danny traps Freakshow in the Fenton Thermos.
- The Voiceless: She never talks.
A Harmless Villain
, Box Ghost's main shtick are anything cardboard and square (and the occasional bubble wrap). Consistently pathetic and easy to beat, he remains determined to be taken seriously. He Took a Level in Badass
in the Bad Future
, becoming incredibly muscular and gaining the ability to form exploding boxes out of energy.
Her goal is to serve food to everybody, but she goes into a homicidal rage if people refuse. She doesn't like vegetables.
- Apron Matron: Can go from kind and motherly when offering food to vicious and blood thirsty when her food is rejected.
- Chef of Iron: Can control food and form a body made of meat.

- Mood-Swinger: She talks very sweetly one minute, then screams at the top of her lungs in a blind rage the next.

- Workplace-Acquired Abilities: She was a former chef of Casper High.
From the Bad Future

- Girlish Pigtails: The hairstyle she wears.
- Kid from the Future: Is the future child of Box Ghost and Lunch Lady, sent back by Clockwork to test Danny.
- Lamarck Was Right: She has both of her parents' powers. She also has a perfect blend of their personalities.
- Punny Name: It's a portmanteau of "Box Ghost" and "Lunch Lady".
One of the show's most recurring villains, Skulker is a ghost obsessed with hunting to such an extent that he's considered the Ghost Zone's greatest predator. Growing bored, he looked to the real world for a challenge and fixated on Danny, whose hybrid nature made for an endlessly exciting hunt. In the Bad Future
, he merged with Technus to become Skulk Tech.
- Badass Biker: He certainly looks like one.
- Beard of Evil: A glowing green goatee.
- BFG: There are a lot of improbably huge guns built into that battlesuit.
- The Dragon: To Vlad on occasion.
- Egomaniac Hunter: Hunts other ghosts.

- Evil Sounds Deep: His voice actually gets deeper as the series goes on.
- Flaming Hair: Has glowing green flames for hair.

- Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: Targets other ghosts, and takes a particular interest in Danny Phantom.
- The Man Behind the Curtain: The real Skulker is a tiny and pathetically weak ghost; the body most people see is just a high-tech suit. As he spends almost all of his time in the suit, however, this isn't a huge weakness.
- Powered Armor: His body turns out to be a Giant Mecha of sorts for a small, weak ghost.
- Worthy Opponent: He and Danny hate each other, but do seem to respect each others' abilities to the extent of teaming up several times when a bigger threat comes around. He even states as much in the series finale.
"I am Technus! Master of technology and destroyer of worlds!"
Another common enemy, Technus is an eccentric ghost with formidable technological powers and the goal of WORLD DOMINATION- who gets defeated in every appearance, largely due to his bad habit of shouting his plans at the top of his lungs (though his upgrade into Technus 2.0 helped him break that habit). Nonetheless, as long as he can possess sufficiently advanced machinery, he can be quite formidable. In the Bad Future
, he merged with Skulker to become Skulk Tech.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Prior to being upgraded his plans were skewed towards the bizarre.
- Cool Shades: Square ones that seem to lack a nosepiece.
- Einstein Hair: Before his upgrade he had white Flaming Hair that gave him this look.
- Genre Blindness: Very much so in his original form, doing things like blurting out his plans and spending hours monologuing. His upgrade negated this, though.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Has shades of this after his upgrade. His plot in his last major appearance certainly falls into this. He not only tricked Danny into Dating Catwoman with Valerie to distract him, but possessed her suit to trick Danny Phantom into blowing it apart right in front of her, convincing her that he'd have done the same to her. He then proceeded to give her an upgraded battlesuit to take advantage of that. Even more impressive considering how Genre Blind he was before.
- Large Ham: "I AM TECHNUS! MASTER OF ALL THINGS ELECTRICAL!"
- Manipulative Bastard: After his upgrade, much to Danny's surprise, who assumed he wouldn't do it because he hates emotions.
- Meaningful Name: Named after Nikola Tesla, known best for his work in electrical currents (as well as being the source for many Mad Scientist tropes).
- Mid-Season Upgrade: Interfacing with the Fentons' computer allowed him to transform into 'Technus 2.0'. Not only did it give him a new look and stronger powers, it came with a huge boost in Genre Savvy. Overall, it made him far more formidable than he was before.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: His voice appears to be modeled after Gilbert Gottfried.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: When his shades are off, even though it's only shown in his first appearance.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Spent a fair amount of episodes imprisoned in Level Zero of the Doomed video game.
- Take Over the World: His stated goal.
- Technopath: He commonly refers to himself in some form of "Technus! Ghost Master of Technology!" because of this.
- Totally Radical: Tries to sound "hip and far out" around Team Phantom.
"So you have wished it, so shall it be."
A ghost genie
who is forced to grant people's wishes, most of them resulting a terrible price on the wisher. As a human, Desiree was the Sultan's favored lover of his harem, a love she gave back. The Sultan's jealous wife drove her away, forcing her to remain vindictive and heartbroken throughout the series.
A ghostly sheriff obsessed with maintaining order at any cost, Walker doesn't have as many appearances as some of the other rogues' gallery members, but is still a very significant villain for being the ghost who reveals the existence of ghosts to the world at large and is responsible for Danny's rep as a Hero with Bad Publicity
On the outside, Spectra looks to be a kind, perky woman who just wants to help teenagers and their depression. In reality, she is a Vain Sorceress
ghost who sucks in their emotions to further her youth and beauty. Beneath that bubbly personality, Spectra is sadistic and immoral.
Prince Aragon is the ruthless and cruel older brother of Princess Dorathea (AKA The Dragon Ghost), both of whom appeared to have lived in the Middle Ages (the 4th to the 16th centuries).
"Ohhh, Ember, so warm and tender! You will remember my name!"
A punk rock Diva, Ember hates all sense of authority and adults. She wants to Take Over the World
strictly so people will always remember her name. She tends to be a blunt person. In the Bad Future
, she is overweight and her vocal cords have been damaged, rendering her unable to sing.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her normal attire features this.
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: She gets more powerful the more her fans chant her name.
- Emotion Bomb: Can use her guitar to manipulate others' emotions.
- Evil Diva: She's a ghostly rock star who wants to take over the world.
- Expy: Does she remind you of another girl with blue hair in a ponytail, a short fuse, and a great singing voice?
- Flaming Hair: It gets longer the stronger she gets. She can use it as a weapon. Backfired when she accidentally set Youngblood's pirate ship on fire.
- Goth Spirals: On her right eye.
- Instrument of Murder: Can smack people around with her electric guitar.
- Love Guitar: One of the settings on her guitar makes people fall in love with each other.
- Musical Assassin: Her guitar is her main weapon.
- Pirate Girl: She wears pirate gear during the episode "Pirate Radio" where she and Youngblood team up to take over Amity Park.
- Popularity Power: The more people say her name, the stronger she gets.
- Say My Name: In her first appearance. She wasn't happy when it didn't work.
- Unholy Matrimony: With Skulker, until she dumped him.
- Villain Song: "Remember", which hints at her origin. The lyrics tell the story of a girl evidently abandoned by her love, whose life continued on without her, with him apparently forgetting she existed. This could be part of her motivation, and how she died so young... it's been hinted that she perhaps committed suicide after being left, perhaps by cremating herself, and her vengeful spirit wants everyone to adore her and always be screaming her name to make sure she's never forgotten again.
A little, immature boy who likes to play dress up. Despite his size and youth, he can be incredibly dangerous.

Johnny 13's girlfriend. She mostly follows his path, but can be quite dangerous, especially when she's angry. She seemed the least changed in the Bad Future
, but joined Johnny and the others in attempting revenge.
- Bare Your Midriff: Part of her "biker girlfriend" attire.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Really hates it when Johnny is looking at other women besides her.
- Demonic Possession: In her first appearance, Johnny needed to find a host body for her to inhabit in the human world. This was dropped in later episodes, and in one episode she uses her possession in an attempt to make Johnny jealous.
- Kiss of Death: It's a blown kiss, but anyone who is hit by it is trapped in another dimension.
- Operation Jealousy: To piss off Johnny, she dates Danny while secretly overshadowing Paulina.
- Unholy Matrimony: With Johnny.
- Woman Scorned: Johnny's got to learn to stop his wandering eye.

A one-shot villain from the Christmas Episode
, he tried to get revenge on Danny for accidentally destroying one of his poems.
A ghost considered to be the spirit of Halloween, Fright Knight is a very powerful Sealed Evil in a Can
inadvertently released by Danny, who was trying to put together a haunted house as part of a detention for Mr. Lancer. He was resealed at the end of the episode, only to be released later by Pariah to serve as The Dragon
. At the end of Reign Storm, he was seen to make an alliance with Vlad to take down his master, but this is never really followed up on. In "The Ultimate Enemy's" Bad Future
, Dark Danny
seems to have inherited his loyalty.
"It's a burden, isn't it, child—Having so much power?"Absolute ruler of the Ghost Zone
until he was defeated and imprisoned
, Pariah is far and away one of the most powerful characters to appear in the series, to the extent of effortlessly owning Vlad within seconds of being freed and commanding the allegiance of Fright Knight, another tremendously powerful villain. He was inadvertently released by Vlad, who was looking for his artifacts of doom
, the Ring of Rage and Crown of Fire, and immediately proceeded to conquer both the Ghost Zone and Amity Park. Ultimately, Danny was able to seal him again (with some help), but the Ghost King was not destroyed and may yet be free to walk the world again.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: The former Ghost King, and the strongest ghost in the whole story.
- Big Bad: Of the first TV-movie.
- The Dreaded: The Fright Knight, ghost of Halloween and nightmares, is afraid of him. And him being free caused all ghosts to exode toward Earth just to escape him.
- Eye Beams: His most common attack.
- Evil Overlord: He ruled the Ghost Zone before being overthrown.
- Expy: Word of God mentioned Darkseid as an inspiration for the character.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: He had elements of this, being an obscenely powerful ghost out for world domination, but without a terribly interesting personality. However, the Made-for-TV Movie he appeared in featured major roles from a lot of the more interesting Rogues Gallery members (such as Vlad, Valerie, Fright Knight, and Skulker), so it all evened out.
- Horned Humanoid: Has a pair of horns, but one of them is broken.
- Large Ham: Justified, given how big he is.
- Physical God: Is the strongest ghost Danny has ever faced, having conquered the Ghost Zone a long time ago.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: He was sealed away to free the Ghost Zone from his tyranny.
- Spikes of Villainy: Has spikes around his arms.
- 0% Approval Rating: None of the ghosts like him and Fright Knight only seems to serve him out of fear. Fits since his name is Pariah, which means something that is despised or avoided.
Dark DannyClick here to see him. He's that much of a spoiler.
"You don't get it, do you? I'm still here! I still exist! That means you still turn into me."Danny's alternate future counterpart through a fusion between his ghost half and Vlad's after an accident that renders his family, friends, and teacher dead from a Nasty Burger explosion.
He is a straight-to-the-point villain who all but creates mayhem and destruction in his path with absolutely no guilt for his cause. Danny eventually defeats him and with Clockwork's
aid, changes the future. Dark Danny now exists outside of time, forever trapped in the Fenton Thermos
. He is perhaps the most dangerous villain in the show because of his personal nature
and utter depravity.
- And I Must Scream: Being trapped in the thermos for all eternity. Though it's kind of hard to feel sorry for him due to how evil he is.
- Ax-Crazy: If the ruins of a future Amity Park didn't tell you.
- Badass Cape: The only real difference between his outfit and Danny's is that Dan's has a jagged-edged cape.
- Big Bad: Of the second TV-movie.
- Bloodbath Villain Origin: One of the few villains to have every condition for it.
- Casting Gag: Probably unintentional, but this isn't the first time Eric Roberts played a psychotic villain in a made-for-tv movie about time travel.
- Composite Character: He's a fusion between Danny and Vlad's ghost halves. The end result, however, is an evil all his own.
- Creepy Monotone: Generally tends to speak in a very calm, monotonous voice, unless he's gloating.
- Despair Event Horizon: His Start of Darkness and the reason Danny asked Vlad to separate his human and ghost halves. Needless to say, it backfired.
- Establishing Character Moment: He destroys the shield that's been keeping him out for years, and then causes citywide destruction, with his next scene showing he had a lot of fun with it. This shows that he is one of the most powerful characters in the show and that he greatly enjoys what he does.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: More like Evil Has Forgotten How To Comprehend Good, as he doesn't understand his younger self's desire to prevent his future and laughs at his desire to save his love ones.
- Evil Counterpart: To Danny Fenton, being his evil future self.
- Evil Makeover: The skin and eye color change and the flaming hair look really cool according to fans. The uniform that came later?
- Evil Sounds Deep: Puberty treated Danny really well.
- Fallen Hero: Very happy to be as such, disturbingly.
- Fate Worse Than Death: He's stuck in that Fenton Thermos forever.
- Flaming Hair: Has white flaming hair tied back in a ponytail.
- Future Me Scares Me: Danny is disturbed and horrified by what he has the potential to become.
- Hero Killer: Almost succeeds in killing Sam, Tucker, Jazz, and Danny's parents... oh, and Mr. Lancer too.
- Jerkass/Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Sam and Tucker call him a jerk at several points.
- Knight of Cerebus: By far one of the most menacing villains Danny faced.
- Lack of Empathy: Tries to kill Tucker and Sam without a moment's hesitation, and taunts Danny about how fighting him is futile.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: His Ghostly Wail. It took him ten years to master the move though. He got really pissed when his past self mastered it quicker.
- Merger of Souls: Is a fusion between Danny's ghost half and Vlad's ghost half.
- Mr. Fanservice: No doubt the voice is what helps.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Apparently. No actual onscreen deaths occur but it's heavily implied he's a mass murderer that's destroyed most of the Earth's population if what we see of the world outside the ghost shield was like is anything to go by.
- Painful Transformation: Absorbing Vlad looked really painful. Some fans have speculated that in that moment, Phantom was fighting for dominance.
- Put the "Laughter" in "Slaughter": Has a HELL of a time destroying the futuristic Amity Park.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: In a similar vein to Vlad's ghost form.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: He was sealed away in a Fenton Thermos and left with Clockwork, though for how long is unknown.
- Self-Made Orphan: He didn't just kill his parents, he killed his sister, his friends, and his teacher...just to secure his own future.
- Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: Danny's trying to stop him from killing the people closest to him because he promised to not turn evil? Ha! Such a child.
- Slasher Smile: Just look at his picture above.
- The Sociopath: All started when Danny made Vlad remove any human emotions that caused him pain. The result became this.
- Temporal Paradox: Winds up causing one while trying to ensure his own creation. Whoops.
- This Is Your Brain on Evil: He's an older Danny with human emotions that cause pain removed, leaving him a sadistic monster.
- Too Powerful to Live
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: The show, while carrying serious arcs, is still aimed at children and has a fair amount of comedy and positive fluff. Dark Danny not only commits mass murder as his introduction, but he has no compunctions about harming kids and former loved ones.
- Walking Spoiler: We can't even tell you his name without giving away The Reveal.
- Would Hurt a Child: Regardless if they are his old friends or his sister.
- You Can't Fight Fate: According to him, anyway.
"Me? I'm inevitable."
- 0% Approval Rating: More so than Pariah. Most everyone in his timeline, ghosts and human, hates him and only Fright Knight seems to serve him willingly.
"So, Danny, you and your little friends want to hunt ghosts?"
Danny's bumbling father, Jack Fenton is an obsessive inventor of ghost weaponry and gadgets, designed to rip them apart molecule by molecule
. Naturally, this usually results in a panicky Danny Phantom whom Jack considers as one of his enemies, despite having saved the world countless times. Tends to be clueless, but can briefly turn into a Badass Normal
if his loved ones are threatened.
"What, you think I sit home and invent new cookies all day?"
Equally obsessed with ghost hunting and research as her husband Jack, Maddie nevertheless remains far more logical, competent, and calmer then her husband. She is the main romantic target for Vlad.
- Action Mom: Though more capable than Jack.
- Amazingly Embarrassing Parent: Their ghost hunting craze causes Danny a lot of embarrassment.
- Brainy Brunette: Fits both criteria, especially the brainy part.
- Happily Married: Like many series, her husband is less-then-perfect, but she loves him, a key point that Danny uses against Vlad. Plus, it seems like no matter what the situation with them is, alternate universe or even holographic programming, they will always be madly in love with each other.
- Hartman Hips/Impossible Hourglass Figure: Even when not in her hazmat suit.
- Hazmat Suit: Is almost never seen outside of her blue hazmat suit.
- Hot Scientist: Both Jack and Vlad agree on this.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: See Jack's example.
- Mama Bear: Really. Just... don't try and hurt the Fenton kids.
- Parental Obliviousness: Not as much as Jack though.
- Parenting the Husband: She's more mature and a little more responsible than her husband. Sometimes, she has to step in and take action.
- Purple Eyes: Contrasting her husband and children's blue eyes.
- Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: With Jack.
- Women Are Wiser: Or relatively so. She's still ghost obsessed, but would rather study the remains.
"It's "Dani" with an "I"."
Danny's clone, created by Vlad as a stepping stone to the perfect Danny Fenton/Phantom clone to call as his own son. Unlike the various other Danny clones, Danielle has a mind of her own, possessing a naive behavior with much of Danny's traits and character. She is often childish and spunky, but well-meaning. An imperfect clone, she is constantly dissolving and until the second-to-last episode
has to keep her powers in check. Danny acts as somewhat of an older brother figure
- Aborted Arc: It's rumored her arc was meant to end different, being adopted by the Fentons, had the series continued.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Danny seemed to treat her as one at first, albeit more from not trusting her than anything else. He gets over this when he learns what she actually is.
- Badass Adorable: She's a tomboy has the physical body of a 12 year old and can use ghostly superpowers.
- Bare Your Midriff: In ghost form. Her human form averts this, though.
- Berserk Button: Before, she instantly flipped when Danny said Vlad didn't care for her. Following the realization he was right, she would stand against anyone, power problems or no power problems, who'd use her or threaten Danny.
- Big Brother Worship: Has shades of this in "D-Stabilized" when she seeks Danny. When he believes she's sided with Valerie to trap him, she insists she'd never betray him.
- Big Eater: The first thing she does after meeting Danny is ask if he has any food. Then cut to his bed covered in empty boxes and food wrappers.
- Break the Cutie: Both of her appearances make her go through some form of this.
- Cute Bruiser: When she's not in danger of melting, she's just as capable as Danny in a fight.
- Cute Ghost Girl: Comes with being Danny's clone.
- Deadpan Snarker
Dani: I gotta get to Danny, fast! (Flies slowly) Or slow, slow's good. (Speed decreases even more) Or slower, even slower's better.
- Disney Death: Though it came pretty close...
- Distaff Counterpart: For Danny. Even their names sound similar, something Valerie snarked about.
- Easily Forgiven: Granted she was tricked by Vlad, but despite fooling him and knocking him out twice, Danny seems to fully accept her after she turns on her creator.
- Subsequently, she had very easily forgiven Valerie for lying to her, using her as bait to capture Danny and handing her to Vlad.
- Has Two Daddies: Sort of. She was created by Vlad, who she called father until learning he never cared and renounced that idea, and she was created via Danny's DNA, who one could argue is a parent due to being the donor of the DNA but is more of a genetic brother though she calls him "cousin". If you want to go even further one could argue Jack can be her father genetically due to sharing Danny's DNA.
- Heel-Face Turn: Joins Danny for real when Vlad starts showing his true colors.
- High Heel-Face Turn: Appears to be the only female in all of the clones, and the only one that isn't killed off.
- Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Really was a bad idea to call her a "puppet", Vlad. Or telling her she exists just to serve you.
- Heroic RROD: Since she's an imperfect clone, she can't overuse her power or they'll eventually dissolve her. The problem gets fixed in her second appearance.
- Ill Girl: Suffering from melting in D-Stabilized.
- Innocent Blue Eyes: Inherited from Danny.
- Nice Hat: In her human form.
- Mafia Princess: Deconstructed. She merely was led to believe her "father" loved her and would do anything for her.
- Opposite-Sex Clone: To Danny.
- Protectorate: Becomes a personal one for Danny. He makes it clear to Vlad coming near her would not please him in anyway.
- Token Mini-Moe: The only female ghost hybrid in the series and the youngest.
- Tykebomb: Was created to trick Danny into befriending her so Vlad can use his DNA to create the perfect clone.
- Walking the Earth: Implied after her first appearance since she obviously can't go back to Vlad.
- "Well Done, Daughter" Girl: She only sought out to make her "father" Vlad happy, but after seeing he never saw her as anything more than a pawn, she sided with Danny. By her second appearance, she's renounced the idea of him being her father.
- Younger Than They Look: Physically she appears to be 12 years old (according to Danny) but she is in fact a few months of age at most since by the end of the series a full year hadn't passed since Danny obtained his powers.
"The Observants look at time like they're watching a parade, one thing after another passing by in sequence right in front of them. I see the parade from above, all the twists and turns it might or might not take."
The ghost of time, Clockwork keeps the flow of time and interferes when he feels something is disturbing said flow. He is mysterious and powerful, knowing every aspect of time: past, present, and future. He remains a neutral influence in Danny's life, playing only by his rules. He doesn't perceive time as a linear sequence of events; this is reflected in his appearance, which constantly fluctuates in age.
- All-Powerful Bystander: He prefers to be an observer, but will help Danny when he needs to.
- Big Good: Even taking his neutrality in consideration, he’s as close to one as you can get here.
- Deadpan Snarker: Particularly to the Observants.
- Dungeon Master: Oversees all of time and only steps in if the situation demands it.
- I'm a Doctor, Not a Placeholder: In "Masters of All Time", Danny asks Clockwork if he could save Vlad and Danny's friends from the Ecto-Acne. Clockwork's response: "I'm the ghost of time, not the ghost of miracle cures."
- The Omniscient: He states he can see all possible futures.
- Omniscient Morality License: His goal, above all, is to ensure a positive future, regardless of whether or not he might have to kill someone.
- Sinister Scythe: Uses one in battle. Subverted in that he isn't evil.
- Time Dissonance: He admits that time moves differently for him, but doesn't go any further because he knows Danny won't understand.
- Time Master: Being the ghost of time makes him this.
- Time Stands Still: Can stop time for everyone unless they wear his time medallions.
- Time Travel Tense Trouble: "I sent him back to his own time, or should I say forward to his own time?"
- The Watcher: Part of his job as the ghost of time.
- You Can't Fight Fate: Subverted. He explicitly states that, unlike the Observants, he sees all possible futures. However, he does say that one cannot simply Set Right What Once Went Wrong and must fix their problems in their own present. This rule is set aside, however, when others try to alter the timeline to produce an outcome favorable to themselves, at which point Clockwork will step in personally.

Danny's mentor when he received his ice powers. Frostbite is a giant Yeti-like ghost, leader of his tribe, and an all-around (n)ice guy.

- Mr. Exposition: Provides exposition for Danny on the Infi-Map and his new ice powers.
- Nice Guy: More then happy to help out Danny if he can.
- Training from Hell: What he puts Danny through to master his ice abilities. It ended up turning into hell for his people every time Danny screws up.
- Undying Loyalty: Thanks to Danny defeating Pariah Dark, he's earned this from Frostbite and his tribe. (Doesn't stop them from being afraid when he accidentally hurts them with his new ice powers though.)
