     Sark 

Zemerik

The tyrannical ruler of the Sark Empire.

Voiced by Michael Dobson

  • Big Bad: Alongside Kalus until the Red Sentients show up, at which point he kind of gets fazed out.
  • Brain Washed: He got reprogrammed by the Green Sark, causing him to mindlessly worship the Alpha-Code.
  • Determinator: Of all the evil faction leaders, Zemerik has worked the hardest, defeating his old master, building his own empire, and continuing to survive and move even when his empire crumbles and his former master wants him dead.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: When he still served Krytus, his voice was considerably deeper.
  • Forgiveness: He was under the control of the Alpha-Code at the time, but after being mortally wounded by Krytus, he responds by forgiving Krytus. While it probably wasn't his intention, it robbed Krytus of his revenge.
  • Heel-Face Revolving Door: Definitely. At first he's a Krytus's slave, then he gains freewill, turns on his master and becomes his own villain. Then when Krytus is released, he assists Vert, and even saves him at the cost of his own safety. He bargains with the team to get them information, and then later tells them of Tezz. When he tries to make more Zurk, he tricks the team and turns on them. After that, he's possessed by the Alpha code, but Spinner breaks him out of it using a handshake that symbolized their alliance, and he defeats Zorax and frees them, before trying to sell them off to Karmordians.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: In Season 2.
  • Kick the Dog: having Zug reprogrammed after helping Stanford.
  • Noble Fugitive: Currently on the run from Krytus.
    • Until Krytus catches up with him in Get Zemerik. Krytus kills him but he's last seen reviving under the control of the Alpha-Code.
  • Not So Stoic: Usually, Zemerik is smug and dispassionate, but he tends to lose his temper upon defeat.
  • Pet the Dog: First Season Finale, he sacrifices his only chance of escape to stop Krytus. Later on, when Zug gives Zemerik his powercore, so he can survive the wasteland Zemerik promises to come back for him, calling him "[his] friend."
    • and he does.
  • Sliding Scale of Robot Intelligence: Zemerik is at level 4.
  • Smug Snake
  • The Starscream: A successful one to Krytus eons ago after he gained free will, sealing Krytus and the Red Sentient 5 away.
  • The Minion Master
  • Tin Tyrant
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Averted but only in proportionate amounts. The team sticks around to save him from Krytus, and in return he stops Krytus from killing them at the cost of his own safety. They rescue him from The Vandals, and in return he tells them about Krytus and his minions before pulling a Villain Exit Stage Left, and later alerts them to a rebel fighting against Krytus. When they help him recode Sark, he does turn on them and reveal his ambitions to take over the multiverse, but he also extends a hand to them in a We Can Rule Together sort of way. When Spinner frees him from the Alpha code, he frees them from Zarvox, and then sells them off to the Karmordians.
  • Whip It Good: His main weapon, and his car's, is an energy whip.

Zug

Zemerik's right-hand man.

Voiced by Brian Drummond

The Zurk

Tors-10

A Red Sark who appeared in Gladiators
  • Evil Cripple: He's missing his legs.
  • Foreshadowing: He foreshadows Krytus's return, alluding to his master, and even his color-scheme implies the Red sentient faction.
  • The Power of Hate: Uses this and the power of Rage to get the team to fight each other.

The Alpha-Code

A Sark cult found deep within the Toborian Badlands.

Zorax

Leader of the Sark Cult
  • Robot Religion: Runs it.
  • Sinister Minister: In a fanatical sort of way Zemerik declares him a false profit after killing him.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Was apparently working with the Karmordians, but Zemerik was freed and killed him before this could be elaborated on.

     Vandals 

Captain Kalus

Warlord of the Vandal horde.

Voiced by Colin Murdock

Krocomodo

Second-in-command to Captain Kalus until Season 2.

Voiced by Brian Drummond

  • The Dragon
  • The Starscream: Krocomodo was this during Season 1, until Grimian became Kalus' second-in-command in Season 2. When Grimian betrays them, Krocomodo saves Kalus and rallies the troops at his behest.

Hatch

Kalus's "sorcerer".

Voiced by Kathleen Barr

  • Adorkable: His weakness, and cowardice lead him into this territory, especially "Grimian's Secret," where his lack of efficiency has made him a pariah.
  • Butt Monkey
  • Cross-Dressing Voices
  • Evil Genius
  • Evil Sorcerer: Practices Black Magic, though he's not very good at it.
  • Extreme Omnivore: When Spinner throws Pizzas at them, Sever enjoys the pizzas, but Hatch declares the most deliscious part to be the "tasty shells" aka the boxes.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Hatch is quite cowardly, and often mocked by those around him, he even asks Tezz for some tricks to help him seem like a better sorcerer.
  • Professional Butt-Kisser
  • Undying Loyalty: While he had some rather traitorous moments, he eventually falls under Kalus firmly. In Grimian's secret, his incompetence loses Kalus's favor, but after outing Grimian as the traitor, and firebombing Grimian's car to stop the ape's escape, he wins Kalus back (bar some comedic anger at the end of the episode).
    Hatch: "You were magnificent Captain Kalus!"
    Kalus: "Hm, and your loyalty was noted... sorcerer."

Sever

Voiced by Colin Murdock

Grimian

Voiced by Scott Mcneil

  • Failure Is the Only Option: Grimian would never achieve his goal of leading the Vandals. Kalus would defeat him, and even if he did win, his ally Krytus would turn on him and kill him. Even when he's winning, Krytus's musings always allude to the fact that Grimian will never truly rule.
  • Kicked Upstairs: Kalus promotes him to second-in-command both as Cruel Mercy and to keep his eyes on him.
  • Les Collaborateurs: He's secretly in league with Krytus!
  • Public Execution: After his final attempt to conquer Vandal results in them nearly being wiped out by the Red Sentients, the final shot of him is him surrounded by the entire Vandal Horde, Kalus slowly approaching him with a spear in hand, heavily implying he's about to be executed for what he's done in front of the entire planet.
  • Sixth Ranger Traitor: Within the Vandals' Five-Bad Band.
  • The Starscream: Books Krocomodo out of this spot.
    • Ultimately costs him, as Kalus eventually discovers Grimian's treachery, but settles for Cruel Mercy by banishing him the first time, the second time when Grimian betrays the entire planet to the Red Sentients, Kalus has had it with him. In their final battle, Kalus is actively trying to kill him instead of just chewing him out. And his last scene heavily implies he's executed by Kalus.
  • Trying to Catch Me Fighting Dirty
  • Villain Exit Stage Left: Tries it twice, the first time, Hatch threw a firebomb on his ride and destroyed it, the second, a few vandal soldiers stopped him.

     Blue Sentients 

Sage

She is the team's mentor.

Voiced by Kira Tozer

Sol

Sage's mentor.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Sole Survivor: Invoked: His debut episode is called "Sol Survivor." He's one of the last living blue Sentients, and the only survivor of 948 Sentient prisoners, all the others were tortured to death.
  • Twin Telepathy: With Kytren.

Boralis

     Red Sentients 

Red Sentient 5

The five Red Sentients who initiated the War against the blue Sentients.
  • And I Must Scream: Zemerik put them all in this position and this is their fate as of Season 3.
  • Fangs Are Evil
  • Human Popsicle: Krytus's ultimate fate after the other Red Sentients reveal that they're just as tired of the war he started as the Blue Sentients are, the two races banishing and freezing him in ice for his crimes, and in the Season 3 premiere it's revealed that the others were frozen next to him.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over

Krytus

The leader of the Red Sentients.

Voiced by Brian Drummond

  • Big Bad: Replaces Zemerik.
  • Big "NO!": In Get Zemerik in response to a mortally wounded, brainwashed Zemerik forgiving him, effectively robbing him of his eons old revenge.
    • Gets another in Unite And Strike when the Red Sentients reveal they've made peace with the Blue Sentients and banish him. He's frozen in the middle of it.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Type 3. He can transform either one of his arms into a magma-blade.
    • Dual Wielding: In Better Off Red, it was revealed that he can use both at the same time!
  • Cain and Abel: Krytus is Cain.
  • Eviler Than Thou: It says something when Zemerik's description of him is "the most malicious being in the multiverse".
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He gets mad very easily.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He frees the rest of the Red Sentient civilization from statis...only for it to turn out they're just as tired of his war as the Blue Sentients are and turn on him, helping banish and imprison him in ice.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • This Cannot Be!: Pretty much his reaction when Battle Force 5 awakens the dormant Blue Sentients.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Turns out one of these tipped Sage off to the true evil of her brother in ancient times.
    • Has another in Get Zemerik when an Alpha Code brainwashed Zemerik forgives him after Krytus finally mortally wounded him, effectively making Krytus' revenge on him meaningless. Krytus responds with disbelief, followed by a furious Big "NO!" and a fit of rage ending with him throwing Zemerik's body into a pit.

Kytren

The Reds' Scout.

Voiced by Michael Dobson

  • Cain and Abel: Tried to kill his Blue Sentient Twin
  • Dark Chick
  • Hulk Speak
  • Pet the Dog: Despite being an evil psycho, and even trying to kill his brother, when Kyburi was captured, he was the first to demand they rescue her, as he'd experienced capture before.

Kyburi

The Reds' Huntress and Second-in-command.

Voiced by Kathleen Barr

Krylox

The Reds' Tactical Operations and Tech-Support. I can't believe I just said that.

Voiced by Colin Murdock

Kyrosis

The Reds' Artillery Expert.

Voiced by Mark Hildreth

  • A Day in the Limelight: The webisode Warrior Fire, which gives him the most dialogue he's ever had!
  • Apologetic Attacker: a bizarre example, in "Warrior Fire' he and Kytren have to rescue Kyburi, he insults Kytren, purposefully hyping him up for the fight, which they later win. As they are getting away, he explains his actions to Kytren, who agrees with him.
  • Cold Sniper
  • Evil Genius: Warrior Fire implies he's one; thinking up a plan and being more eloquent than Kytren.
  • Informed Flaw: Said to be very arrogant, his lack of dialogue doesn't manage to convey it, neither does his Day in the Limelight.
  • Manipulative Bastard:
    Kyrosis: Did I say something to make you angry, Kytren?
    Kytren: YES!!!
    Kyrosis: Good, now we are ready to attack!
  • The Quiet One: Doesn't talk much apart from phrases such as "locking onto target".

Other Red Sentients

Karmakaris

Member of the Council of Five, severely doubts Vert.

     Diads 

Praxium

A Diad that the team finds on the Blue Sentient Homeworld.

Quardian

A Second Diad found in a battle zone.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Borallis, following his last command of gathering up old blue Sentient Shells.

     Karmordians 

All Karmordians

Kromulax

Bruterax

Other Karmordians

  • Always Chaotic Evil
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: The First bordered on Implacable man, even after losing most of his limbs he unleashes his bomb. The next three prove very powerful, and have the Team on the ropes. When they get into an army though, they quickly are reduced to Mooks. The Team is able to take on multiple foes at once and take them down.
  • Suicide Attack: The first one appearing is one. He unleashes a shadow bomb into the portal Nexus to free his masters.

     The Ancient Ones 

  • Big Bad: If Rawkus' monolouge about them at the end of season 2 is any indication, they'll be this in season 3.
  • Dark Is Evil
  • The Dreaded: Sage says it best when she says that they're something she hoped they'd never have to face.
  • Eldritch Abomination: We haven't seen their true appearance yet, just shadowy figures of them. But everything we've seen and heard about them just screams this.
  • Vagueness Is Coming: By the end of season 2, all we know about them is they're an ever bigger threat than Krytus, they have the power of darkness, and they're really, really bad.
