[[quoteright:188:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/188px-Dexter-dexters-laboratory-13130849-445-567_5461.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Creator/ChristineCavanaugh (seasons 1 and 2), Creator/CandiMilo (seasons 3 and 4), Creator/JeffBennett (his [[spoiler:FutureBadass]] self in Ego Trip)

* AmbiguousDisorder: Much like his sister. He has NoSocialSkills, a genius, and has trouble with basic concepts.
* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: "Dee-DEE, get out of my laBORatory!"
* TheAce: When it comes to science, of course. There was even an episode where one of his [[HotTeacher teachers]] [[TeacherStudentRomance clearly has the hots for him]].
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: Taken UpToEleven in fan-works.
* {{Adorkable}}
* AnimalsHateHim: As seen in an episode when Dee-Dee tries to get him to play outside numerous times and animals constantly beat him up. At the end of the episode, when Dexter is finally able to relax outside, several animals, including ''[[UpToEleven a fish]]'', jump out of nowhere onto Dexter in a BigBallOfViolence.
* BadassBeard and BaldOfAwesome: His future self.
* BadassBookworm
* BerserkButton: Mess with his sister, and you're dead meat.
* BigGood: In "Ego Trip".
** Also in any crossovers with other Cartoon Network franchises, he's either this or the de facto {{Leader}} including Cartoon Cartoon Fridays and FusionFall.
* ButtMonkey: Nothing goes right for this kid. ''Nothing''.
* ChildProdigy[=/=]InnocentProdigy: In one episode, he treats a burnt out light bulb as a kid would the death of a beloved pet.
* TheChewToy
* ClockKing: Dexter once bought an expensive popsicle and paid with pennies. When the ice cream man asked Dexter how long it took him to count the pennies, Dexter correctly answered the question.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Of a sort. Dexter tends to fail spectacularly at any form of physical activity, particularly sports... until the backdrop changes from "sports" to "Deedee let a giant monster out of the wormhole machine." Basically, he's an exaggerated stereotype of nerds are wimps up until science is involved. He can also go from ''deflecting lasers with his wrench like a Jedi'' to ''slap-fighting his rival'' and somehow manages to be in character both times. RuleOfFunny is involved, but still.
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially in his interactions with Dee Dee.
* DependingOnTheWriter: How smart he is can differ from episode to episode.
* DidNotThinkThisThrough: Tends not to consider the full ramifications of his inventions and schemes. For example, in "Morning Stretch", he used a time-slowing helmet to turn thirty seconds into thirty minutes, allowing him the time to get ready for school. He failed to realise that the slowed time would prevent him from properly taking a shower or making breakfast, and his homework ignited from friction burn when he tried to finish it.
* DitzyGenius: He's able to time-travel, create robots and build portals to other dimensions, but is utterly incapable of taking care of himself for a single day when his mom is sick. He doesn't know how to cook (having never heard of "flour"), and as for cleaning... Also why would he put buttons and triggers in places Dee-Dee would obviously activates.
* ExtremeDoormat: His early 20's self in ''Ego Trip'' is this to Mandark.
* EyeGlasses: The glasses can change shape depending on expression.
* FieryRedhead: His family is split evenly between this and the DumbBlonde stereotype; he and his mother are fiery redheads and his sister and dad are happy-go-lucky yellow-haired ditzes.
* TheFinickyOne
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The responsible to Dee Dee's foolish.
* ForScience: CatchPhrase
* FutureBadass: Invoked in the MadeForTVMovie, ''Ego Trip'', wherein Dexter travels to the future for the primary purpose of seeing what kind of BadAss he is. In the dystopian future version of himself, he comes to resemble his hero Action Hank: big, brawny, and [[BadassBeard bearded]] (and unlike Hank, [[BaldOfAwesome he goes bald]]), and his MadScientist pseudo-Germanic accent is replaced by an Arnold impression.
** FutureLoser: This trope is also averted in Dexter's other two future versions, a wimpy office drone and a hilarious old man. The FutureBadass version of Dexter exists between the two chronologically. However, we eventually see the former [[TookALevelInBadass take a level in badass]].
* GadgeteerGenius
* GoodIsNotNice: He's an egotistical jerk, but undeniably a good person.
* GradeSkipper: Dexter once went to college. At first, all other students only wanted to party and he refused to join, despite their warnings about getting it out of the system. By the time Dexter proved them right by buckling under the strain, ''they'' were the ones who only wanted to study for the upcoming finals. His attempt to make a wild college party happen anyway got him expelled.
** In another episode, Dexter was considered for grade-skipping but needed to improve his P.E. grades. He cheated his way into victory and ended up becoming [[LaserGuidedKarma Dee Dee's yearmate]].
* HeightAngst: In "Ewww, That's Growth", Dexter and his family want to go on a really big rollercoaster, but Dexter is denied due to being too short. The resulting angst drives him to become as tall as possible, eventually allowing him to finally go on the rollercoaster by the end of the episode. [[spoiler:This backfires when he becomes so tall that he hits the ceiling at the very end.]]
* HerrDoktor
* IdenticalGrandson
* ImprobableWeaponUser: He's pretty handy with a wrench in matters of melee combat as well as mechanics.
* InsufferableGenius: He can be very arrogant..
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: But he's not a bad person.
* LargeHam
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Mother, Like Son]]: He's a FieryRedhead like his mother. She is also the source of his pride and creative impulses.
* MadScientist: Not villainous example, obviously.
* ManChild: Teenager Dexter and Old Dexter could be excused, but FutureBadass Dexter cements it by whining he should've been the one to save the future and goes on with the plan of creating robots to destroy Dee Dee.
* {{Narcissist}}: He has a ''very'' high opinion of himself. Case in point: in "The Parrot Trap," he built a robotic parrot purely so he could hear it repeat his own self-indulgent praises.
* TheNapoleon
* NerdActionHero: He has his moments in the show, being a super scientist with an assortment of cool robots and gadgets, but it really becomes true for his FutureBadass version seen in ''Ego Trip''.
* NerdGlasses
* NerdsLoveToughSchoolwork: Looks forward to hard tests.
* NoRespectGuy
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: It may be easier to look for what areas of science Dexter HASN'T covered throughout the show.
* PingPongNaivete: He had his moments of stupidity. One example is when he thought he was going to die...because he had gas. We're talking about a boy genius that has done everything from go inside his sister's body to traveling to other planets using his inventions.
** To "simulate" the gas buildup in his lab, he used a balloon to represent himself. In other episodes/shorts, he didn't know what the "strange protrusions" all over his body were (he had the chicken pox) and tried to do a search through the entire animal kingdom for the "species" known as... the girl.
* PrecociousCrush: On Lisa, the babysitter.
* RedHeadedHero
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: Savvy Guy to Dee Dee's Energetic Girl.
* ScienceHero
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Sensitive Guy to his Father's Manly Man.
* ShorterMeansSmarter
* TheShortGuyWithGlasses: He's ''two feet tall''.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Became one in later seasons due to {{Flanderization}}.
* SmartPeopleKnowLatin: Or ''take'' it, anyway. In "Accent You Hate" he's shown opening his locker and saying "Good morning" to [[NerdsLoveToughSchoolwork his Latin and math textbooks]].
* TeachersPet: Although Mandark gives him some competition.
* TookALevelInBadass: In "Ego Trip".
* TVGenius: He's a world renowned genius capable of building time machines, giant robots and create all sort of genetically modified creatures, yet thinks "girl" is some kind of tribe, doesn't know what dirt is, and one time thought he was going to die due to having gas.
* UnexplainedAccent
** Possibly a meta-AuthorAvatar related reason: Tartakovsky was born in the Soviet Union and moved to the United States as a child. He [[CaptainObvious (most likely)]] has one as a child.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Dexter has a very peculiar accent that is either aiming for a stereotypical Eastern European accent, or a Bulgarian accent. Even Genndy Tartakovsky [[ShrugOfGod isn't certain what his accent is supposed to be.]]

!Dee Dee
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/098798789789_4403.JPG]]
->Voiced by: Alison Moore (Season 1 & 3), Kathryn Cressida (Season 2 & 4)

* [[spoiler: AccidentalHero: At the end of ''Ego Trip'', much to the ire of the Dexters.]]
* AmbiguousDisorder: Sometimes has hints of this- she lacks a lot of social intuition, can't take a hint, seems to be very temperamental, and even her own ''friends'' get frustrated by her odd behavior at times.
* ActionGirl: When the situation calls for it.
* {{Adorkable}}
* AllGirlsLikePonies
* AnnoyingLaugh: It sounds like a horse's neighing, only high-pitched.
* [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling Annoying Older Sibling]]
* ArtEvolution: Had thick eyebrows and seemed to lack a chin in early episodes.
* BerserkButton: Mess with her brother, and you're dead meat.
** When Dexter wouldn't listen to her long-winded story about her day, she burst into tears and [[ItMakesSenseInContext turned into a giant monster and went on a rampage]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes / BewareTheSillyOnes
* BigSisterBully: Her treatment of Dexter has shades of this at times. In one episode, she stole Dexter's money right out of his hands to buy something, and when Dexter asks why she did so, she tells him point-blank, "You're so small and weak that I ''could''!"
* CloudCuckooLander
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* TheCutie
* DeadpanSnarker
* DependingOnTheWriter: Gets hit with this pretty bad. How nice or annoying she is varies wildly from episode to episode. In some episodes, she's rather innocent and her destructive tendencies are accidental and due to playful clumsiness. In others, she's far more malicious and intentionally antagonistic.
** She also flip-flops from stupid to a StraightMan for Dexter.
* TheDitz
** GeniusDitz: She has her moments. She gave a [[GeniusBonus somewhat accurate description of Gregor Mendel]] in the Sasquatch episode.
** A subtle moment from the show's opening titles. Dexter frantically presses a button, attempting to turn on a large light. Dee Dee briefly gives Dexter an aside glance and coy smile and plugs a cord into a nearby socket, causing the light to turn on.
* DreadfulMusician: She has an absolutely terrible singing voice. Doesn't stop her, though.
* DumbBlonde
* DumbIsGood: Much more cheerful and pleasant than Dexter.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The foolish to Dexter's responsible.
* GenkiGirl: She's an extremely energetic, hyperactive girl.
* GirlishPigtails. Blonde gitails.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: She loves her dolls.
* HypocriticalHumor: Whenever Dee Dee meets someone of her own clingy and destructive level, she finds them intolerable and inconsiderate. For example, in the pilot episode, when she finds out that Dexter broke into her room to steal one of her dolls for experiments, she completely loses it and confronts him, while ignoring the fact that she regularly breaks into his lab uninvited and destroys it without a care for Dexter's feelings.
* IdiotHoudini: Dee Dee always made a huge mess of Dexter's lab through her sheer idiocy, sometimes even causing quite a lot of destruction among others as well, yet she almost never got any repercussion for it. Seasons 3 and 4 were a little better about averting this. Partly because there were fewer episodes that had Dee Dee in the lab but she was a lot more prone to actually getting called out for her antics. It helps that there were times that she actually did try to clean up the messes she made and that she either went down with Dexter or suffered as a result of her own actions.
* InnocentBlueEyes
* InnocentlyInsensitive
* KiddieKid: Dee Dee is elder to her titular brother, and "Picture Day" episode implies that she is in the sixth grade. This would put Dee Dee's actual age somewhere between ten and twelve, but she tends to behave as if she were younger than Dexter.
* KnightTemplarBigSister: Dee Dee may appear to be a flake, but you do NOT harm her little brother. Or she will kick your ass.
* {{Leitmotif}}: This whimsical, piano piece that plays when she shows up, usually when dancing.[[note]]Simulated [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APRHE-Ri64g here]][[/note]]
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father, Like Daughter]]: Her dad is where she gets her lack of foresight and curiosity.
* MotorMouth
* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]: She's pretty darn sweet and she absolutely ''adores'' her little brother. Her destructive tendencies are usually due to clumsiness or carelessness rather than malice, and sometimes it's shown that the reason she's always sneaking into Dexter's laboratory is because she just wants to spend time with her brother.
* NoIndoorVoice
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Even her ''parents'' call her Dee-Dee.
** It's more a case of OneMarioLimit since "Dee Dee" is an actual name.
* NoIndoorVoice
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Every time Dee Dee manages to get into Dexter's lab, she almost always leaves a massive amount of destroyed machinery and inventions in her wake. In Mandark's debut episode, Dexter even [[ExploitedTrope used this to his advantage]] to get back at Mandark.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Along with her two friends, who wear the same clothes as her.
* RepetitiveName
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: Energetic Girl to Dexter's Savvy Guy.
* SpannerInTheWorks: ''Especially'' in Ego Trip, when she [[spoiler: wanders through the time portal at the end of the movie, goes "Oooh, what does this button do?", then pushes it and leaves.]]
* SweetTooth
* WalkingDisasterArea: At least whenever she's in Dexter or Mandark's lab. Or being abducted by aliens. Otherwise she manages to keep the property damage to a minimum.
* WhatDoesThisButtonDo: The TropeNamer.

![[spoiler: Susan]] "Mandark" Astronomonov
[[quoteright:143:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mandark_324252_2465.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Eddie Deezen
* {{Adorkable}}
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: He was this to Dexter before VillainDecay kicked in.
* ArchEnemy
* AffablyEvil: He usually uses his manners, and has some VillainRespect for Dexter.
* BadassBookworm: It should be expected as he's Dexter's EvilCounterpart.
* BadassCape: Gets one in later seasons.
* BadBoss: His young adult self in TheMovie.
* BigBad: The closest this series has to one.
* BrainInAJar: His ultimate fate at the end of "Ego Trip."
* BreakoutVillain: Appeared infrequently in Seasons 1 and 2, became pretty much the 3rd main character by the time the show ended.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He had telepathy is his first appearance.
* ChildProdigy
* DarkIsEvil: His lab in post-finale seasons.
** Also, of course, his [[DarknessVonGothickname nickname]].
** DarkIsNotEvil: When he's actually siding with Dexter or just taking a break from evil in general.
* DarknessVonGothickname: His preferred, self-given alias.
* DependingOnTheWriter: He's either a villainous mastermind or just some kid Dexter's rivals with.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Retconned to [[spoiler: Susan]].
* EntitledBastard: In his debut episode, he genuinely expects Dexter to help set him up on a date with Dee Dee, despite the fact that he had spent the entire episode one-upping Dexter and forced him to shut down his lab; Dexter only goes along with it because he realizes he can exploit Dee Dee's [[WalkingDisasterArea destructive tendencies]] to have Mandark's own lab shut down.
* EvilCounterpart: To Dexter; Tall and composed to Dexter's short and insecure. His younger sister, Olga "Lalavava" Astronomov, is this to Dee Dee, a short and solemn Technician to Dee Dee's tall and joyful Performer; while Dee Dee unwittingly destroys Dexter's creations but truly loves her brother, Lalavava bullies Mandark mercilessly. His parents also serve as not so evil counterparts to Dexter's, being a pair of 60's era hippies in contrast to Dexter's straight laced 50's inspired ones.
* EvilGenius: His talents and competence are equal to Dexter's.
* EvilLaugh: "[[https://youtu.be/gh6E1HZvLxY?t=5s HA haha! HA haha haha!]]" The fact that he cries, coughs and ''chews'' in the same way makes it border on being a VerbalTic.
* EyeGlasses
* FatBastard: In the third future of Ego Trip.
* {{Flanderization}}: Became more and more like a stereotypical EvilGenius as time went on.
** No kidding, he was just originally portrayed as Dexter's rival and at best, just wanted his lab shut down. Suddenly it went from that to trying to take over the world.
** To a lesser extent, his crush on Dee-Dee.
** Also, he didn't do freaking everything in the same rhythm as his EvilLaugh when he was first introduced.
*** That happened in [[https://youtu.be/gh6E1HZvLxY?t=5s just one episode]]; it wasn't just Mandark either, '''''everything''''' had that rhythm: the bird singing outside his window, Mandark's alarm clock, the Rice-Krispies-like popping of his breakfast cereal, his mother's impatient foot-tapping...
* FreudianExcuse: His parents were people perpetually stuck in the 60's (i.e. hippies) and constantly stifled his scientific curiosity. He tried his best to go along with it, but one chance meeting with Dexter on the day he moved into the neighborhood ended with Dexter laughing in his face. Needless to say that was the straw that broke the camel's back.
** PlayedWith. He was hinted to have always been born with a negative disposition and his parents really didn't understand him though when they did realized they were denying some of his needs, they left their home and traveled around, eventually settling in Dexter's neighborhood.
* HarmlessVillain: After VillainDecay.
** NotSoHarmless: Though Ego Trip eventually proves he can still be a threat.
* HippieParents: Has this.
* HopelessSuitor: Is head-over-heels in love with Dee Dee, who is unaware... at best.
* InsufferableGenius
* KnightOfCerebus: In "Ego Trip".
* LeanAndMean
* LightIsNotGood: Mandark's lab before post-finale seasons.
* MadScientist
* MeaningfulName: His vaguely Russian last name creates a [[EvilCounterpart parallel]] with Dexter's Eastern European Accent, [[spoiler: [[MeaningfulRename and his first name drives him to reject the New Age hippie lifestyle in favor of hard science.]] ]]
* MultipleChoicePast: He has two different origin stories.
* NerdGlasses
* OminousOperaCape
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: His alternate getup.
* TheRival
* SmugSnake
* TeachersPet: Competing for the role with Dexter.
* VillainRespect: He hates Dexter, but he still respects him.
* VillainousCrossdresser: Once Mandark replaced Dexter's mom. No one in the family noticed it, until the real mom came by.
* VillainousCrush: On Dee Dee.
* YoungerThanHeLooks: He's ([[VagueAge presumably]]) the same age as Dexter (though it's implied that Dexter has skipped at least one grade), but he's as tall as (if not taller than) Dee-Dee, and could easily pass for a teenager.

[[folder: Minor Characters]]

!Dad
[[quoteright:212:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9878768_3313.JPG]]
->Voiced by: JeffBennett

* AbusiveParents: As shown in several episodes, such as "Better off Wet," Dexter's dad can be a bully, embarrassing and pulling childish pranks on his family for his own enjoyment. These often include pushing his family in the pool, and very manipulative behavior.
* {{Amazingly Embarrassing Parent| s}}
* BerserkButton: You can threaten him, you can break his car and he'll just brush it off. But don't ''ever'' not-hold a door open for a lady--ESPECIALLY his wife!
* BewareTheNiceOnes: ''Hoo boy'' - there's his ManipulativeBastard tendancies, for a start. Then there's the times he gets ''really'' mad...
* BumblingDad: Both parents are bumbling, though their primary flaw was being clueless to Dexter's Laboratory (and he has a memory erasing gun, so its more like they look stupid by comparison to their supergenius son.) Dexter's father turns out to be a stunt biker when his job is finally revealed (up to then, he left every day dressed for an office job), making him much cooler and more competent than the typical example.
* CloudCuckoolander
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: And when it happens, ''watch out.''
* DitzyGenius: He's generally pretty care free and goofy, but he can be surprisingly crafty and manipulative when he wants to, bordering on TheChessmaster. If mom's muffins are involved, ''watch out!''
* DumbBlonde: Subverted - while he's clearly not as smart as Dexter, he possesses average intelligence, and has moments of genius.
* EyeGlasses
* {{Flanderization}}: Became a SmallNameBigEgo in the later episodes.
* HappilyMarried
* ManChild
* ManipulativeBastard: He's this when he wants to be in "The Muffin King" and "Snowdown".
* NerdGlasses
* NoNameGiven: His first name is unknown.
* PapaWolf
* SanitySlippage: In "The Muffin King".
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Manly Man to Dexter's Sensitive Guy.
* StandardFiftiesFather: He walks a fine line between this and the BumblingDad.
* TookALevelInBadass: Dexter's dad goes from average middle class guy and sports enthusiast to daredevil stuntman in one episode of the later seasons.
* TookALevelInDumbass: His stupidity may have been passed down to Dee Dee.
* UnnamedParent: He is only called ''Dad''.

!Mom
[[quoteright:218:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/09890898_6165.JPG]]
->Voiced by: KathSoucie

* ActionMom: Demonstrated in "Mom and Jerry", "World's Greatest Mom" and "A Mom Cartoon".
* {{Amazingly Embarrassing Parent| s}}
* BerserkButton: As seen in "Dexter's Rude Removal", the most Mom ever got beyond angry was when the rude clones of Dexter and Deedee not only made a huge mess of her kitchen during a food fight but used profanity as well.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Whenever her BerserkButton is pushed, or her children are threatened.
* CuteBruiser: See ActionMom.
* DitzyGenius: Like Dexter's dad, she shows frightening proficiency with technology when it comes to battling germs.
* FieryRedhead
* {{Flanderization}}: Her NeatFreak tendencies get played up considerably in the later episodes.
* HappilyMarried
* HartmanHips: The page image. In fact, when DeeDee gets turned into a duplicate of Mom in one episode, she feels her hips with awe.
* {{Housewife}}: She seemed to have little characterization outside of her housework, though it's implied at least a few times she was much more of a rebel in her youth. Her typical outfit that she wore everywhere even included yellow rubber dishwashing gloves and an apron.
* IconicItem: Her yellow rubber gloves. So much so that she feels naked without them.
* MaleGaze: Cameras don't hesitate to get as many shots from the back as they can. "Better Off Wet" in particular features her in a bikini.
* MamaBear
* MistakenForBadass: She once "defeated" the reigning snowball champion (Dexter's dad) by playfully chucking a snowball at him. He's been convinced ever since that she has evil snowball powers, which she passed on to Dee-Dee.
* NeatFreak: The episode "Pslyghtly Psycho" suggests that she is actually germophobic, particularly when her gloves and slippers are removed and she finds herself afraid to even set foot on the carpet barefoot.
* NoNameGiven: Her first name is unknown.
* RedheadInGreen: She wears a pale green blouse-shirt with a wide collar, white apron and dark green pants. Also her bikini is green.
* SkewedPriorities: She favors cleanliness over anything. One episode has her ignoring the fact Dexter had destroyed her entire house over the fact he was clean.
* UnnamedParent: She is only called ''Mom''.

!Lisa the Babysitter
[[quoteright:164:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dexters_babysitter_9949.png]]
->Voiced by: KathSoucie

* HartmanHips
* MsFanservice: She has a slender but curvy figure.
* NiceGirl: Lisa is shown to be very kind and friendly, and is evidently very good with children, seeing as she's a part-time babysitter.
* OneShotCharacter[=/=]OneSceneWonder: She only appears in a very early episode of the series and never shows up again after that. But look up any fanart of her and you'd be surprised at how much of it there is.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It is unknown if Jeff and Lisa got back together after Dexter broke them up.
* ZettaiRyouiki

!Douglas E. Mordecai III
->Voiced by: TomKenny

* EyeGlasses
* HollywoodNerd
* SatelliteCharacter: He's Dexter's best friend. That's pretty much it.

!Monkey
[[quoteright:243:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dexters_lab_monk_9429.jpg]]
->Voiced by: FrankWelker

* ActionPet: When off duty, his personality is similar to Dee Dee's and he is often seen playing with her in the laboratory, but when it is time to save the world Monkey is extremely serious and heroic and risks his very life to ensure the safety of the world and those he loves.
* [[ADogNamedDog A Monkey Named Monkey]]
* BadassAdorable
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: When Huntor's technology completely counteracts Monkey's powers, Monkey defeats the villain using only his skills, brains, and - uh - guerilla tactics.
* {{Determinator}}: In his fight with Rasslor, he kept on being knocked down, and ''wouldn't give up''. Rasslor threw the fight (and decided not to destroy the Earth) because of this.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys
* FlyingBrick: He can generate an energy field around his body that gives him this set of powers.
* HeroicSpirit: He can be defeated (with humorous ease in some cases), but he'll ''never'' surrender.
* InterspeciesRomance: He is often paired with his sidekick and girlfriend Agent Honeydew on his missions who he cares about deeply and appears to posses a psychic link with her.
* LovesMyAlterEgo: Non-romantic example. Dexter admires the super hero Monkey and has no idea that his lab monkey leads a double life. He remains thoroughly unimpressed that his monkey failed to developed super powers.
* [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace Monkey Can Breathe In Space:]] Apparently his energy field provides life support for himself and passengers.
* OutOfFocus[=/=]DemotedToExtra: In the UnCancelled seasons. He did get a ''bizarre'' DayInTheLimelight episode, though.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter
* SecretIdentity: As Dexter's lab monkey.
* {{Superhero}}
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Convinces Simion, another super-simian, to abandon his plan of destroying the Earth in favor of swinging around in a jungle. Not bad for somebody who can only make monkey noises.

!Agent Honeydew
->Voiced by: Kath Soucie

* ActionGirl: As part of her agent training, she is a trained fighter who is proficient in firearms.
* BoyishShortHair: She has short black hair with curly bangs.
* HartmanHips
* InterspeciesRomance: Despite their different species' (and the questionable ethics of this), it appears that Monkey and Honeydew's relationship is very close and romantic, as both are often seen going out on dates when off duty, sharing romantic dinners and Monkey staying over at her house where they apparently bathe together while she grooms him.
* MsFanservice: She is a sexy spy.
* RavenHairIvorySkin
* SpyCatsuit: She wears a violet-blue S.H.I.E.L.D.-style jumpsuit when is in mission.

!Quackor the Fowl/Ducky

* ADogNamedDog
* EvilCounterpart: To Monkey.
* FeatheredFiend: An evil duck.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:In her second appearance, due to falling in love with Monkey]].
* SamusIsAGirl: [[spoiler:Implied in her second appearance; she and Monkey not only fall in love, but she lays an egg. So she's either a girl or a MrSeahorse]].
* PunnyName: Quackor the ''Fowl''; "fowl" is a term for both ducks and chickens, while a homonym "foul" means "wicked" or "amoral".
* UndyingLoyalty: Implied to have this for Mandark in her debut episode, seeing as she goes off to destroy Dexter's lab after hearing Mandark mumble about wanting to do so in his sleep.

!Simion the Monkey
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/simion_the_monkey.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:Simion the Monkey!]]
->Voiced by: MauriceLaMarche

* OneShotCharacter: He was never seen outside the episode: ''Simion''.
* TalkingAnimal: Yes, he does so.

!Major Glory
->Voiced by: RobPaulsen

* TheCape
* CaptainPatriotic
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Disappeared after the show was UnCancelled, along with the other Justice Friends. Though they did get an appearance in "Dexter's Wacky Races."
* CrazyPrepared: He wears ''dozens'' of masks to conceal his face.
-->"When I say secret identity, I ''mean'' secret identity."
* {{Eagleland}}: Type 1 (perhaps)
* ExpressiveMask
* {{Expy}}: ComicBook/CaptainAmerica with Comicbook/{{Superman}}'s powers and a personality similar to [[WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast Space Ghost]]'s.
* TheHero
* LargeHam
* TheLeader
* SmugSuper
* TeamDad: He may also be the TeamMom depending on the situation.

!Valhallen
->Voiced by: TomKenny

* BarbarianLonghair
* BareYourMidriff
* BiggerOnTheInside: His room. There's an episode dedicated to it, appropriately titled "Valhallen's Room".
* BlindingBangs
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome
* EmpathicWeapon: His "Mighty Axe", a [[RealMenWearPink pink]] flying V-type guitar.
* {{Expy}}: Of ComicBook/TheMightyThor.
* ImprobableWeaponUser
* TheLancer: To Major Glory.
* MrFanservice: Implied to be this InUniverse; he has a bunch of wildly screaming female fans when he steps into the ring in "Wrasslor".
* {{Nerd}}: His true identity, which he reverts to when separated from his mighty axe for too long.
* ThePowerOfRock: He's the ''god'' of it!
* OnlySaneMan: Stupid, yes, but sane.
* PunnyName: "Valhalla" and "VanHalen"
* ShoutOut: To Van Halen, and HeavyMetal (mainly HeavyMithril, what with his Viking motif) in general.
* TotallyRadical: Most of his dialogue.
* VagueAge: He looks to be around his [[KidHero late teens]] to early/mid 20's, yet most of the time he acts more mature than Krunk and at worst, Major Glory.
** Not to mention that he is a [[Really700YearsOld god]].

!The Infraggable Krunk
->Voiced by: FrankWelker
