Characters: Lab Rats
Chase Davenport
Played by: Billy Unger

Adam Davenport
Played by: Spencer Boldman

Bree Davenport
Played by: Kelli Berglund

Leo Dooley
Played by: Tyrel Jackson Williams

  • Adorkable
  • Artificial Limbs: Douglas had to install bionics in his right arm, because it was completely damaged beyond repair.
  • Badbutt Normal: Come on. He saved the Lab Rats from being crushed (and nearly bought the farm himself), went to help Davenport in the tunnel when the other couldn't, stopped a virus-crazed Eddy, and stood up to Marcus, even when threatened with his Eye Beams (and after Marcus had already tried to kill him once before, because he saw Leo as a threat).
    • Took a Level in Badass: In You Posted What?!, Douglas enhances Leo's arm after it is crushed and it is now bionic. Giving him the bionic abilities include healing quickly, throwing energy balls, and increased physical strength. But only in his right arm.
  • Black and Nerdy
  • Butt Monkey
  • Cassandra Truth: No one believes him when he says Marcus is a "bad dude".
  • Child Prodigy: Despite Donald's criticism, did you see just how effective Leo's 'attack orbs' were?
  • Clingy Costume: Solidly under the Rule of Funny, as it's adhered to him in a way he's no longer comfortable with.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He and Chase are the master snarkers of the show.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish to Bree and Chase's responsible and the responsible to Adam's foolish.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Most of the time.
  • I Just Want to Be Special
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • The Klutz: Apparently, he's broken a lot of Donald's stuff.
  • Mission Control: As of "Missin' The Mission".
  • Muggle: He's slowly moving out of this, as he's becoming more and more involved with missions and the overall operations side of the Lab Rats' work.
  • Plucky Comic Relief
  • Secret Keeper: Though some of Davenport's projects are public knowledge.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl
  • Shorter Means Smarter: However, he is nowhere near as smart as Chase.
    • Not yet - but if the scientist from the Christmas episode "'Twas The Mission Before Christmas" is any indication, Leo coupd be serious competition someday.
    • Few episodes in season 3 feature him trying to invent gadgets that usually end up going awry.
  • The Strategist: He usually comes up with the plan and as of "Missin' The Mission", he's been promoted to strategic mission specialist.
  • Tag Along Kid
  • The Team Wannabe: Becomes a part of the team later on, but still wants more.
    • He got it - in "Bionic Showdown" where he used Donald's exoskeleton to save the others from Marcus, and in "Parallel Universe", where he actually was temporarily given the bionics of the Leo from that universe.

Eddy
Voiced by: Will Forte

Principal Perry
Played by: Maile Flanagan

Marcus Davenport
Played by: Mateus Ward

Douglas Davenport
Played by: Jeremy Kent Jackson

  • Abusive Parents
  • Afraid of Needles: in a throwaway gag, he reveals that he kicked out of med school because he kept screaming every time he saw needles.
  • Alliterative Name
  • Annoying Younger Sibling:...Turned evil.
  • Archnemesis Dad: To Adam, Bree, and Chase.
  • Badass
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's comedic and a bit light hearted. But underneath it all he's a cold blooded super villain, who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals and is the most dangerous force they've faced as of yet.
  • Big Bad
    • Big Bad Duumvirate: Has formed one with Victor Krane, but just barely. until Krane goes completely insane, betrays him and tries to kill him
  • Cain and Abel: With Donald.
  • Enemy Mine: He is fed up with Victor Krane after being betrayed by him and teams up with the Lab Rats in Taken.
    • This happens again in Which Father Knows Best?, where Leo had to find Douglas, because Douglas was the only one who could restore Bree's bionics.
  • Envy: Towards his older brother Donald. Is implied to be at least partially responsible for him turning evil.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: When his plan to control Adam, Bree, and Chase with the Triton App fails, he claims he can update the Triton App, and his business partner Victor Crane tells him to use it to destroy them. Douglas says destroying the Lab Rats was never part of his plan. Crane tells him they're using his plan now and leaves. Douglas has a reluctant look on his face.
  • Evil Genius
  • Evil Step-Uncle: To Leo.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Upon his second encounter he refused to reveal his evil plan to them, knowing that if he did, then when something went wrong they would use it against him.
    • He also anticipates Krane's betrayal, and fakes his death convincingly enough that Krane is doesn't suspect his return to stop him
  • Faux Affably Evil: Douglas may be cheerful and seeming friendly, but underneath it all he's cold blooded and ruthless, case point him suggesting they (he Adam, Bree and Chase) plan family game night while working to enslave them.
  • Heel-Face Turn: following Krane deciding he wants to kill Adam, Bree and Chase he begins to have second thoughts. Then as Krane gets more and more insane he starts to drift away and actually turns on him, saving Adam, Bree and Chase. However he truly redeem himself when he builds Bree and new chip and actually agrees to work with Donald to save her when it malfunctions. After some prompting Donald agree's to give him a second chance.
    • Cemented in "You Posted What" where he's now fully joins the others.
  • Human Popsicle: Gets frozen solid by his brother's new freeze ray after Chase tricked him.
  • Insufferable Genius
  • It's All About Me
  • Just a Machine: He's pretty indifferent, almost amused by the fact that his son is going to die before turning 16 because Marcus is 'just an android'.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Much darker than most of the shows other villains, and most Disney villains in general. Although still portrayed as somewhat light hearted, he is a realistic mad scientist, who's engaged in experimenting on children, has no problems committing outright murder (even to his own family) and his long term goal is a mixture of brainwashing, slavery and Child Soldiers.
  • Laughably Evil: Sure, he's threatening...but he's also just as crazy as Donald is.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father
  • Mad Scientist: An interesting example, rather than being a stereotypical mad scientist. Douglas is instead presented as someone who is closer to realistically dangerously insane, and is also a super genius scientist.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate
  • Psychotic Man Child
  • Shadow Archetype: To Donald. Donald may have been an arrogant jerk who doesn't always treat Leo or the Lab Rats with proper respect, but he at least tries to keep it in check. Douglas on the other hand is far worse—he is basically Donald if the latter did not keep his arrogance and pride in check.
  • We Can Rule Together: Tries this with Chase. It backfires horribly.
  • Would Hurt a Child
