Characters: League of Super Evil

Voltar

The leader of the titular League, a short red man, always seen wearing a helmet. He is very determined, yet most of the times his persistant plots for domination are foiled either due to poor planning, bad luck, short-sightedness/pettiness or the ineptness of his minions. But most of the time, its all of the above.

  • Ambiguously Human: Even without his helmet or suit, he's shown to have extremely pale skin and entirely black eyes with glowing yellow pupils. He could be an alien invader of some kind, which would explain a few things.
  • Big Bad: Subverted as A. he only thinks he's bad, and B. he's not that big.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Believes himself to be a great villain, though his schemes rarely do more than annoy the neighbours. And that's when they work. Always upstaged by every other villain, especially Skullossus
  • Evil Is Petty: Though pettiness is all that really makes him evil.
  • Expressive Mask: "Voltar Squared" revealed that his face is actually a helmet. Thus, its probably one of the most expressive masks ever created.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Perhaps the reason he is the leader of the League.
  • Jerkass
  • Large Ham: Sure, his plans usually do little more than annoy the neighbours, but he's so enthusiastic about how evil they are.
  • The Napoleon: He's no bigger than the neighbourhood kids, but acts like the greatest villain of all time.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: For being the leader of a supervillain team, his schemes never seem to accomplish much. He also tends to disregard suggestions by Dr. Frogg, who is quite capable.
  • Poke the Poodle: What most of his acts of 'villainy' involve, such as selling shampoo that would make everyone's hair sticky.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Frogg's blue.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He's mostly ignored as a villain, but convinced he's a global threat.
  • Too Dumb to Live
  • Tragic Villain: The Whole Episode Flashback reveals he was at one point the Hall Monitor of Metrotown's Hero School, and would have been the next big hero if Glory Guy hadn't bribed his way up.

Doktor Frogg

  • Butt Monkey: Most of the abuse and physical humour tends to happen to him.
  • Childhood Friends: In "Once Upon a Lose" it is revealed that Red Menace and Doktor Frogg have been best friends since school and have known and followed Voltar for just as long
  • The Chew Toy: Often literally, as Doomageddon loves chewing on his mechanical hands.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Being a supergenius, is often annoyed by Voltar's idiocy and lack of ambition beyond annoyance.
  • The Dragon: Seems to be the second-in-command, and often called upon to design the devices to enact Voltar's schemes.
  • Evil Genius: The only guy on the team that actually deserves this title.
  • Face Palm: Or rather Face-Claw,, and often when Voltar does or suggests something really stupid.
  • Good Hurts Evil: Is shown to hate good things like rainbows and happiness. He considered the Sugar Bowl dimension that Doomageddon teleports to a hellish torture.
  • Likes Older Women: He has a crush on The Cougar.
  • Only Sane Man: If one of Voltar's plans are stupid, nonthreatening, and childish even more than usual (and that's saying something!) Frogg will point it out.
  • Mad Scientist
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His voice is an imitation of Peter Lorre.
  • Noodle People
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Voltar's red.
  • Suddenly Shouting: "Oh, I suppose I could if you hadn't SPENT ALL OUR MONEY ON FOAM DINOSAURS!!!"

Red Menace

  • Affably Evil: He focuses more on a lot of things other than being evil.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: When he gets really angry, he can be really dangerous
  • The Brute: In Name Only.
  • Childhood Friends: In "Once Upon a Lose" it is revealed that Red Menace and Doktor Frogg have been best friends since school and have known and followed Voltar for just as long
  • Dumb Muscle: Usually somewhat childish, and sometimes fails to get things for a joke. Just as often, though, he's shown as bright and resourceful. One episode showed Red scoring higher on a computerized intelligence test than Voltar.
  • Evil Redhead: Though, not so much evil.
  • Gentle Giant: Helps little old ladies cross the street.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: Likes baking cupcakes, and suggests reasonable ("good") solutions to problems. The only reason he became a supervillain was because he was disgusted at how corrupt and obnoxious the superheroes at his school were.
  • Token Good Teammate: He's a generally nice guy, really.
