The Main Cast

    Jimmy Two-Shoes 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jimmy_6845.png

The titular character. The happy-go-lucky 14-year-old boy somehow ended up in Miseryville and stayed there. His goal is to spread happiness in Miseryville, much to Lucius' chagrin. Voiced by Cory Doran.

     Beezy J. Heinous 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beezy_2778.png

Jimmy's best friend. Son of Lucius Heinous VII, ruler of Miseryville. He is bigger than his father, but is lazy; he'd rather lounge about and spend time with his friends than learn to govern. Voiced by Brian Froud.

     Heloise 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/heloise_5924.png

A very intelligent 14-year-old young girl and Jimmy's other best friend. She works for Misery Inc. as their top inventor in making hazardous products for bringing people misery. She is sadistic, enjoying the torment of anyone she hates- which is more or less anyone not named Jimmy Two-Shoes. She has a biiig crush on Jimmy Two-Shoes. Voiced by Tabitha St. Germain.

     Cerbee 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Cerbee_2301.jpg

Jimmy's pet monster dog. His barks are performed by Sean Cullen.

     Lucius Heinous VII 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lucy_2661.png

The seventh ruler of Miseryville and in charge of Misery Inc. He is a short, red devil-like creature who is the father of Beezy J. Heinous and is very much unlike his son. He hates Jimmy due to his happy attitude being a foil to his plans. He is dating Jez. Voiced by Sean Cullen.

  • 0% Approval Rating: Which is a given when your subjects are forced to be always miserable. Not that it bothers him.
  • Abusive Parent: However, he's a better parent to his son than his father was to him.
  • Bad Boss: Anyone working for his company gets no vacations, no sick days, and no bathroom breaks, and the longest you can get for rest is five seconds.
  • Bad Is Good and Good Is Bad
  • Bastard Understudy: He overthrew his father to get his position.
  • Big Bad: He's the closest thing to a main villain on the show, but a lot of episodes focus on him. Not surprisingly, we learn more about him then.
  • Break the Haughty: This keeps happening to Lucius. For example, in "Spew-Tube", an embarrassing home video turns him into the town's laughingstock to the point where they refuse to take him seriously at all.
  • Burning with Anger
  • Butt-Monkey: Considering that he likes to spread misery, he has it coming.
  • The Caligula: Has destroyed every washroom in Miseryville just because Jimmy tried to use his, approved of his son's brain being switched with an animal, blown up one of the world's three suns, and stolen all the city's water to fill his pool. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Takes great pride in how he brings misery to his subjects.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Misery Niblets!" as of season 2.
  • Clasp Your Hands If You Deceive: Often when he comes up with something evil to do.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive
  • The Devil Is a Loser: The weakest and least dangerous of Miseryville's seven rulers.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Often called "Lucy" by Jimmy. He is occasionally taunted as "Bellyflop Lucius" due to an embarrassing home movie from his childhood.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Thanks to being voiced by Sean Cullen.
    Lucius: I want my carnival to cast a giant shadow of gloom all over Miseryville! *Evil Laugh*
  • Evil Is Petty: Even when not bossing his employees at Misery Inc., he's still making sure everybody's miserable.
  • Evil Overlord: A cartoonish one, anyways.
  • Evil Versus Evil: Whenever against the Weavils or, in one episode, the Rodeo Clowns.
  • Exposition of Immortality: According to one episode, it took him four hundred years just to grow his horns.
  • Faux Affably Evil: As expected from an Expy of Satan, his politeness is mainly a facade for bringing in more misery to his subjects.
  • Fiction 500
  • Follow in My Footsteps: He wants Beezy to inherit the family business. He has absolutely no luck whatsoever.
  • For the Evulz: Lucius is evil for the sake of being evil. The sole focus of his Mega Corp. is to make people miserable.
  • Glad I Thought of It: A very common occurrence. Has bitten him back in the ass a couple times like in "Cellphone-itis" where his constant self-credit for Heloise's "Sardiner" (a machine that fuses victims together) results in him and Samy becoming the first victims.
  • Greed
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Particularly when it involves a certain Two-Shoes...
  • Harmless Villain: Is just barely feared by his subjects, constantly harmed and humiliated, and when he does win there tends to be a hefty price at his expense.
  • Horned Humanoid: Being a cartoonish version of Satan.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: See Harmless Villain.
  • It's All About Me: Constantly. His image is plastered pretty much everywhere in the city for starters.
  • Kick the Dog: Justified, since it's his job- nay, his purpose in life- to bring misery.
  • Lack of Empathy: This guy lives to make people miserable! What did you think?
  • Laughably Evil: A ruthless tyrant who revels in the suffering of his people, and yet quite hilarious.
  • Louis Cypher: Except in the pilot, where he is directly Satan.
  • Man Child: Sometimes.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: His life is shown to be quite luxurious, with vast amounts of treasure and plenty of pampering from servants (at their expense).
  • Miles Gloriosus: For example, he once declared that he would slay a moon beast, only to chicken out when he really does meet one.
  • Missing Mom: There's been no mention of his mother. Or his wife, for that matter.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Comes from Lucifer, who represents the sin of Pride.
  • The Napoleon: The guy only stands at about Jimmy's waist, but has a temper matching that of a much larger monster.
  • Narcissist: There's a reason why his visage is everywhere in Miseryville.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Word of God has said Lucius actually has some terrible and threatening powers, to the point where he could bend the planet to his will, but he keeps them in check / refuses to use them to prove he doesn't need to use them in order to rule.
  • Obviously Evil: Come on, he's supposed to be the Devil. What did you expect?
  • Playing with Fire: It's more of a running gag, though he does it pretty consistently.
  • Pride: Being based on Lucifer, this is a fairly obvious result, seeing as his visage is decorated all over the city, especially in his mansion.
  • Reality Warper: According to Word of God, but the reason why he never uses his power to its maximum potential is because he wants to prove to everyone he doesn't need to use it.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Just barely 700, actually.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His bunny pajamas.
  • Satan: Sort of. More a Captain Ersatz of him.
  • Self-Made Orphan: ...not exactly? He didn't kill his father, he just... cryogenically froze him. And keeps him in a basement, away from public view. He thaws him out sometimes.
  • Shrine to Self: Lucius's home is decorated with pictures of himself and the other Heinouses.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: And small person to boot.
  • Smug Snake: Oh, so much.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: With Jez.
  • Too Important to Walk: On occasion, with Samy as the walker.
  • Unknown Rival: Jimmy considers Lucius a friend. This is because he's such a pollyanna that he's completely unaware of just how much he is loathed by him.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Implied in several flashbacks.
  • Villain Decay: Season 2 usually had Lucius as a Squidward-esque Butt-Monkey more often than as a villainous Butt-Monkey.
  • Villainous Glutton: Despite his diminutive appearance, he has consumed an entire buffet for lunch, owns all the city's chocolate for himself, and wanted a cake above all else for his birthday.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Despite the way he treats him, he cites Samy as his best friend. Samy may also be his only friend, so this might be based in technicality rather than genuine friendship.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: As noted above, his pride stops him from using his powers.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Gets along with his own father even less than Beezy does with him.

     Samuel "Samy" Garvin 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Samy_Garvin_4897.png

Lucius's assistant who dreams of stardom and fame. He is timid and often abused by his boss. He used to serve Lucius' father, Lucius Heinous VI, doing so for 87 years. Voiced by Dwayne Hill.

Other Characters

     Jez 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/363px-Jez_8678.png

Lucius's girlfriend who is tall, blue and can change her noses. She is often very picky in her dates with him and often threatens to break up with him. She lives in a white mansion and owns a pet dog named Jazmeen, whom Cerbee once fell in love with. Voiced by Valerie Buhagiar.

     Saffi 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saffi_6995.png

Beezy's girlfriend, who is an orange-skinned, one-eyed creature. She hates statues and destroys any she sees. She usually spouts one-to-two-word phrases such as "Yogurt!" and "Smoothy-Smooth!" but occasionally speaks in sentences. (There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it.) Voiced by Sunday Muse.

     General Molotov 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Molotov_4102.png

Head of Lucius' muscle, Molotov is large and in charge... whenever he isn't being bossed around by his four-armed, one-eyed, yellow-skinned wife (known only as Mrs. Molotov). He also has a troublemaking son named Tory, and a baby daughter named Blammo (who has the ability to spew large amounts of pink slime from her mouth); both of whom have his orange skin and small horns. Speaks in a vaguely Russian accent. Voiced by Dwayne Hill.

  • Animals Hate Him: The feeling is mutual.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Almost always wears a black suit similar to that of a bodyguard, as he's acted as one for Lucius on numerous occasions.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Of the malevolent variety.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Made a few minor appearances in early episodes before becoming a consistent recurring cast member.
  • The Dragon/The Brute: To Lucius.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: When he's on the job. He's even been seen wearing a uniform not unlike that of a boot camp officer.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Referred as "Momo" by Jimmy in the second season, despite Jimmy referring him as Mr. Molotov prior to that.
  • Henpecked Husband: In contrast with his work life.
  • Horned Humanoid: Two very small ones. His children also share this.
  • Husky Russkie: Big strong guy with a Russian accent. Yup.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: He's likely named after Vyacheslav Molotov, Stalin's protege in Communist Russia. Some have suggested he's named after the demon Moloch.
  • Papa Wolf: Best demonstrated in "Baby Boom", where he goes on a furious rush back home to pulverize Jimmy and Beezy for supposedly harming his children. (The whole story that made him come back was actually a lie from his son, though).
  • Pitiful Worms: Uses "maggot" so much that it pretty much became his Verbal Tic in later episodes.
  • Pointy Ears: Very small ones.
  • Punch Clock Villain: Only evil when doing Lucius' bidding.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: His waist is ridiculously tiny compared to his chest!
  • Unexplained Accent: His wife also has a Russian accent, yet his children do not. However, it should be noted that this is not uncommon in families who have migrated from other countries. Children raised in an environment will often take on the accent of that environment, so it's safe to say that Molotov and his wife were born and raised somewhere other than Miseryville, whereas his children have been born and raised there.

     Lucius Heinous VI 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lucius_Heinous_VI_8418.png

The sixth ruler of Miseryville, Lucius VII's father and Beezy's grandfather. He's even crueler and more evil than his son. He is rather old and is in a wheelchair, with his limbs occasionally falling off. Lucius overthrew and cryogenically froze him many years ago, but he's defrosted every now and then for various reasons. Voiced by Sean Cullen.

     Dr. Ludwig Von Scientist 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dr_Scientist_3870.png

A demon evil genius with a German accent who somewhat resembles an owl. He's not employed by Misery Inc. but is Heloise's arch-rival in mad science. Voiced by Dwayne Hill.

     Dorkus 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dorkus_7136.png

A tiny one-eyed demon who is Heloise's lab assistant. He often has invention ideas of his own, but they're not very good. Heloise has numerous clones of him in case he's ever injured, killed, or lost... which is often. Voiced by Dwayne Hill.

  • Ascended Extra: Began as a minor recurring character before his position as Heloise's assistant was cemented later on.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Constantly has to do Heloise's dirty (and always dangerous) work.
  • Butt-Monkey: He is to Heloise as Samy is to Lucius, though Dorkus has it arguably worse.
  • Catch-Phrase: He says "You love it! You know you do!" essentially every time he's onscreen.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: In Zombie Pickle.
  • Cyclops: Only has one eye (with one spectacle likewise).
  • Unfortunate Name: What kind of demon is called Dorkus?!
  • Horned Humanoid: Two very small horns on his head.
  • Lilliputians: Though not as small as the Racing Fleas or Gnomans, he's still pretty tiny.
  • Pointy Ears: Like many of Miseryville's monsters, he's got a pair.

     Rudolpho and Peep 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200px-Rudolpho_4265.png
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Peep_the_Salesman_7997.jpg

A father/son team of Cockney-accented con artists who live to swindle the people of Miseryville out of their money. Rudolpho will sell you just about anything, but expect it to have some kids of flaw, while Peep will merely pick your pockets. Rudolpho is voiced by Juan Chioran, and Peep by Christian Potenza.

     Chief Reginald "Reggie" Weavil 
The leader of the weavils, a race of weasel-like demons who live on Mount Misery. Has a fierce rivalry with the Heinous family and is every bit as unscrupulous as they are. Voiced by Dwayne Hill.

     The Rodeo Clowns 
A gang of monsters dressed as clowns who dominate a part of Miseryville known as Clownburg. They are notorious bikers who play mean-spirited jokes on the people of Miseryville, including Jimmy and Lucius. The primarily seen members are a large one-eyed guy in red, a four-armed fellow in green, a long-legged man in purple, and the diminutive leader recognizable by his top hat and tuxedo. The leader is voiced by Ron Pardo.

  • All Bikers Are Hells Angels: Despite being clowns, they act like this sometimes.
  • Clown Car: Their other method of transportation, seen in their debut episode.
    Leader: I don't see why we always have to use the small car.
  • Evil vs. Evil: "Heinous vs. Clown" pits them against Lucius.
  • Horned Humanoid: The Rodeo Clown leader.
  • Jerkass: They love to pull nasty pranks on any Miseryvillian who gets in their way, as Jimmy found out the hard way when he first met them.
  • Monster Clown/Villainous Harlequin: While almost literal examples, they tend to alternate between either of the two.
  • The Napoleon: The leader of the Rodeo Clowns is almost like Lucius' long-lost brother.
  • Pie in the Face: One of their favorite practical jokes.
