[[folder:Megamind]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/megamindbody.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/WillFerrell

The villain of the story, but protagonist of the movie. He was sent from his dying homeworld as a baby, and landed in an Earth prison.
----
* {{AcCENT Upon the Wrong SylLABle}}: For starters, he pronounces Metro City as Metrocity (rhyming with atrocity).
* {{Adorkable}}: It's established that since he was a kid, Megamind's been good at inventing things and... not much else.
* AffablyEvil: He never loses his chipper sense of showmanship when carrying out his evil plans.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Part of the reason for his StartOfDarkness.
* AlliterativeName: '''M'''ega-'''m'''ind.
* AntagonistInMourning: More like VillainProtagonist In Mourning though. He does this after accidentally killing Metro Man [[spoiler:who isn't dead all this time]].
* AntiHero: [[spoiler:Gradually morphs into this by the end of the movie. He's certainly not a hero in the traditional sense, and most of the problems he's faced with were his creations in the first place, but he does save the day]].
* AntiVillain: It quickly becomes apparent that for all his grand evil schemes (most of which go for style over substance), he's not truly playing to win. He's baffled that he actually manages to kill Metroman and it doesn't take long before he realizes that he ''needs'' someone to step up and challenge him.
* ArchEnemy: To Metro Man. [[spoiler:By [[SlaveToPR public standards]] at least]].
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:After the end of the movie he becomes a hero to the people as a means to work off [[LongerThanLifeSentence his many life sentences]]]].
* AutobotsRockOut: Megamind is a ''huge'' music fan.
* TheBadGuyWins: The premise of the movie is his surprise victory over Metroman.
* BadassBeard: [[spoiler:Keeps his killer goatee and becomes a hero]].
* BadassBiker: [[spoiler:Actually Minion in disguise, but may apply to Megamind as well]].
* BadassCape: [[spoiler:Stills sports his stylish cape after he becomes a hero]].
* BaldOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Becomes a true hero by the end]].
* BaldOfEvil: In contrast to Metro Man's well-maintained hairdo, he's completely bald. He lampshades this at the start.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Another part of the reason for his becoming a supervillain. [[spoiler:[[ScrewDestiny Or so he initially believes]]]].
* BecomingTheMask: Megamind in his disguise as Bernard with Roxie.
* BeingEvilSucks: Megamind slowly but steadily realizes this. Though it starts off as more of a case of [[VictoryIsBoring Being A Villain With No Hero Sucks]], it gets more depressing when he realizes [[spoiler: "[[DidNotGetTheGirl The Villain Doesn't Get The Girl]]."]]
* BenevolentBoss: Even after becoming a villain, he treats Minion more like a friend than a servant, and is genuinely hurt when [[spoiler:Minion leaves after an argument]]. He's affectionate to his robotic drones too. He's quite hurt when "Daddy's" forced to terminate a few.
* BigBad: At the beginning of the movie he's this for Metro City. [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope Then Hal gets his powers..]]]].
* BlueIsHeroic: [[spoiler:By the end of the film he becomes a full fledged hero]].
* CampStraight: Megamind has Ho Yay, Foe Yay or both with pretty much every guy in the movie, and yet he never gets explicit about any of them in that way (Dreamworks kids' movie, remember?) and actually ends up with Roxanne by the end of the movie following a naturally progressing relationship (so no Last Minute Hook Up there).
* CaptainErsatz: Megamind is a mixture of Brainiac and ComicBook/LexLuthor (with Superman's origin), [[spoiler: and by the end of ''Button of Doom'' has developed Batman-like characteristics]].
* CardCarryingVillain: He's embraced his status as the "bad guy" since he was a child.
* ChildProdigy: Megamind was able to build inventions before he hit puberty.
* ClassicVillain: Towards Metroman. [[spoiler:Until Megamind becomes a hero himself]].
* ComplexityAddiction: Really loves to keep his plans complicated, even when it would be easier to take a more pragmatic approach. This plays into the fact that he doesn't actually expect to win.
* CrazyPrepared: Grows more into this for every plan that ended in failure.
* CruellaToAnimals: "OH! I'm ''shaking'' in my ''custom'' [[KickTheDog Baby]] [[CardCarryingVillain Seal]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice Leather]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Boots]]!"
* DarkAndTroubledPast: His parents and species died when the planet collapsed, his only companion being Minion. He was raised in a prison (although, the prisoners were nice to him). Then, he entered into school, were he was bullied by everyone, even the teacher. And it was because of their bullying that he thought that the only thing he was good at was being bad and thus decided to do bad things.
* DarkIsEvil: His skin is blue and he wears all black, to contrast with Metro Man's all white ensemble.
* DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler:Even after his HeelFaceTurn, Megamind still sports his blue and black suit]].
* DesignatedVillain: InUniverse, and he based almost his whole identity around it.
* {{Determinator}}: One of Megamind's defining traits is that he ''never'' gives up.
* DitzyGenius: Quite the brainiac who has a habit of mispronouncing words.
* DramaQueen: Always loves the suspense of everything.
* EnfantTerrible: Subverted. He was destructive even as an infant, with a knack for "creating objects of mayhem", but he [[ObliviouslyEvil wasn't malicious]] [[AmbiguousInnocence about it]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards:
** He never ''really'' meant to kill Metroman [[spoiler:and he was happy that he was actually alive]], he also refused to actually hurt Roxanne when he captured her numerous times.
** PlayedForLaughs during [[spoiler:the training session with Titan, which involves him melting the head off of a Megamind dummy with his heat vision. Cut to Megamind (in disguise) with a look of shock and horror on his face.]]
* EvilCounterpart: He and Metro Man are both aliens that were sent to Earth to escape their dying star system, but while Metro Man became a superpowered hero, Megamind became an intellectual supervillain.
* EvilGenius: He relies on his skill as a GadgeteerGenius to carry out his plans.
* EvilGloating: Lapses into this every now and again. He also [[InvokedTrope invokes it]] when he needs to get a rise out of Hal.
* EvilIsHammy: What's the difference between a villain and a ''super''villain? '''PRESENTATION!'''
* EvilIsSexy: [[InvokedTrope Certainly thinks so]].
* EvilVirtues: Namesake aside, Megamind's defining characteristic is his Determination. He didn't rack up all those life-sentences by ''giving up.''
* EvilWearsBlack: Tastefully mixed with dark blue.
* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: Every gun-like weapon is either a laser/dehydrator/or DNA harvester.
* ForTheEvulz: Subverted by Megamind; he ''is'' a CardCarryingVillain, but sees his wrongdoings as a form of self-expression rather than an end unto itself.
* FriendlessBackground: He grew up constantly ostracized and was very much the odd man out at school, due more to his appearance (at least at first) than an apparent knack for villainy.
* FreudianExcuse: He becomes a villain because he grew up in a prison and was rejected by his peers for his odd appearance and strange inventions. Anytime he did anything "wrong", Metro Man put him in the corner and he was rewarded for punishing him.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Megamind was actually a sweet kid, but the constant rejection from his peers made him believe that he was "supposed to be bad". Skip twenty years later, and he's the BigBad.
* GadgeteerGenius: He built an escape trike out of license plates and a binky. ''When he was a toddler.''
* GlamourFailure: His holo-watch allows him to look like anyone it scans beforehand. However, he, apparently, forgot to waterproof it. It also shuts off if he bumps it by accident.
* GoodFeelsGood: What he comes to discover [[spoiler: during his [[LoveRedeems budding relationship]] with [[MoralityPet Roxanne]].]]
* GracefulLoser: He takes every failure as a learning experience, no matter how far-fetched his victory may be.
* GreenEyes: He has very bright emerald eyes. They remain visible when he morphs into someone else, which is a visual cue for observant audience members.
* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: Male example. He has blue skin and is quite handsome.
* {{Heel}}: Styles himself as one. Submits to the tropes of a CardCarryingVillain and enjoys putting on a show. Part of the plot revolves around what happens when a heel faces a true villain.
* HeelFaceTurn: The whole point of the movie.
* HeelRealization: After battling [[spoiler:Hal]], he realizes what he has done.
* HellBentForLeather: Most of his wardrobe (including his boots) has an inclination to leather of some kind.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Minion, since infanthood.
* HiddenDepths: Megamind's confrontation [[spoiler:with Hal after he does a FaceHeelTurn shows that the supposed BigBad who loves getting in trouble actually is disgusted with people who have the potential to be good and don't take it]].
* HighCollarOfDoom: He loves this trope. It's even on [[MundaneMadeAwesome his pajamas]]. He even turns up his ''prison collar''.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: In the ColdOpen of the movie.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Lampshaded by Roxanne and Minion, who both recognize that [[spoiler:Hal Steward]] is the ''worst'' person to give superpowers to.
* IJustWantToBeLoved: Naturally, anyone ostracized by society at large nearly their entire lives would be pretty affection-starved. [[spoiler:Especially evident when Roxanne first hugs him]].
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Despite Megamind's boasts, he actually has a pretty low opinion of himself.
* InsecureLoveInterest: [[spoiler:His whole "Bernard" persona is because of this]].
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: While he was at school.
* InterspeciesRomance: [[spoiler:He (an alien) becomes this with Roxanne (a human)]].
* {{Invisibility}}: His car.
* IronicEcho: "Ollo."
* JerkassFacade: Megamind's entire "villain" role.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's overly dramatic and can be immature, but is actually a good person.
* KlingonsLoveShakespeare: Megamind ''loves'' classic rock and pop from the 70's and 80's, such as Music/GunsNRoses, Music/{{ACDC}} and Music/MichaelJackson. He adopts them when he wants to make a dramatic entrance.
* LastOfHisKind: His parents along with Megamind's original home were sucked into a black hole.
* LeanAndMean: His oversized dome aside, he's incredibly lean and slender. This contrasts to Metro Man's HeroicBuild.
* LongerThanLifeSentence: Got 88 consecutive life sentences for his crimes against humanity and Metro City. Largely meaningless, since he's able to waltz out the front door of his CardboardPrison, and back into his functional supervillain laboratory lair.
* LoveRedeems: [[spoiler:His growing relationship with Roxanne is what moves him toward his HeelFaceTurn]].
* MadScientist: Courtesy of being an EvilGenius.
* MadeOfIron: He'd have to be to survive what was thrown at him.
* MasterOfDisguise: He has a watch that can project a semi-solid hologram of anyone that he has the opportunity to scan, and can recreate their voice using a recorded sample.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: The Feminine Boy to Roxanne's Masculine Girl.
* MyBrainIsBig: Much is made of his intelligence. And his ridiculously huge cranium.
* NecessarilyEvil: Megamind decides to become a villain after he understands that the position of TheCape has been filled by Metro Man, who needs a {{foil}}.
* NerdsAreSexy: He may be a big headed, blue skinned alien, but he's quite good looking.
* NobleDemon: Roxanne clearly isn't impressed with Megamind's torture devices and death traps; not just [[ActionSurvivor because she's]] [[SeenItAll seen them]] [[MundaneFantastic all before]], but because she knows he wouldn't really harm her with them.
* NoInfantileAmnesia: Remembers his entire origin, which began when he was eight days old.
* NoNameGiven: His real name isn't given. He fashioned "Megamind" himself.
* NoSocialSkills: Owing to being a super villain, he's not very good with people.
* NothingIsScarier: Tries to invoke this when Roxanne Richie asks him what he intends to do with the city now that he's defeated Metro Man, since [[AndThenWhat he doesn't have an answer]].
-->'''Megamind:''' Imagine the most horrible, terrifying, EVIL thing you can possibly think of... and multiply it by SIX! In the mean time, I want you to carry on...
* ObviouslyEvil: Two words: "Black mambaaaaaaaaaaaa".
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler:With Roxanne]].
* PerkyGoth: Wears a lot of black, has spikes on his costume, and can be quite [[{{Keet}} energetic]].
* PimpedOutCape: Both the capes he makes, and those he swipes from Metro Man.
* PokeThePoodle: Megamind proudly proclaims himself the [[CardCarryingVillain master of all evil]] and threatens everyone with a FateWorseThanDeath when he thinks he's triumphed, but his idea of "villainy" is to gloat a little, move into the mayor's office, and loot a few banks and museums. Then when he starts falling for Roxanne, [[spoiler:he puts everything back]]. Let's face it, Megamind isn't clear on the definition of "evil." At least not until [[spoiler:Titan [[EvilerThanThou shows him how it's done]]]].
* ProtagonistTitle: It's his movie, after all.
* PuppyDogEyes: The rain scene.
* RaisedByOrcs: When he landed on Earth, Megamind was raised by the prisoners.
* TheResenter: In addition to his other issues, he turned to crime out of jealousy of Metro Man's fame.
* RottenRockAndRoll: He likes to accompany his villainous acts with rock songs.
* RubberForeheadAlien: He can pass for a human if it wasn't for his head or blue skin.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Used as a brief gag.
* SingleTargetSexuality: In the opening, Megamind refers to Roxanne as "the girl of his dreams", and his flashbacks suggest that she ''truly'' is the only girl he has eyes for.
* SmugSmiler: His smugness can all be seen on one of his smiles.
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: Tighten sees through Megamind's Metroman disguise due to Megamind's AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle.
* SocietyIsToBlame: Downplayed. Megamind was literally raised in a prison by the inmates (because apparently SocialServicesDoesNotExist) and when he went to school he was ostracized for looking different and creating inventions that happened to be a bit buggy, even though he made them trying to gain acceptance. Eventually he decided that if he couldn't be accepted, he'd be a villain instead. It's mostly PlayedForLaughs.
* SpikesOfVillainy: Less prominent than some other [[EvilOverlord Evil Overlords]], but there.
* TakeOverTheCity: Never seems concerned with anything beyond Metro City.
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: He decided that if he was going to be treated like the bad kid, then he'd be the ''best bad kid on the planet.'' Happens again later after [[spoiler: being rejected by Roxanne]].
* TookALevelInBadass: Tries to invoke this after getting [[spoiler: dumped by Roxanne]] but the effect deflates a bit when the new hero ''doesn't even show up.'' Plays it straight when [[spoiler: he shows up to rescue Roxanne, with Minion and his entire army of brainbots in tow. As Megamind himself stated, he finally had a ''reason'' to win]].
* TookALevelInIdealism: [[spoiler:At the end, he learns that GoodFeelsGood.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: [[spoiler:Becomes the new hero for Metro City]].
* TragicKeepsake: His disintegrater ray is actually a modified version of his binky his parents gave him as a baby. [[TearJerker Before they died, along with the rest of his people and home planet.]]
* UsedToBeASweetKid: All he wanted when he was little was to make friends.
* VictoryIsBoring: The whole premise of the movie.
* VillainousBSOD: A minor one in realizing that villainy doesn't mean much without a hero. [[spoiler: And after Roxanne dumps him]].
* VillainousCrush: On Roxanne since before the events of the film, as confirmed by [[WordOfGod the filmmakers' commentary]].
* VillainProtagonist: A deconstructive parody of such.
* WeakButSkilled: He admits that, unlike Metro Man, he doesn't have amazing physical prowess or super powers, but he makes up for it by being an extraordinary GadgeteerGenius who is capable of XanatosSpeedChess.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: See his PuppyDogEyes section.
* XanatosSpeedChess: Quite good at this; see final battle with Titan/Tighten.

[[folder:Metro Man]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_guy_in_tights_1066.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/BradPitt

Megamind's rival, also sent from his dying homeworld as a baby. The difference is, he landed in a rich home.
----
* TheAce: Incredible powers, handsome, beloved by everyone, and good hair.
* AlliterativeName: '''M'''etro '''M'''an. [[spoiler: Later '''M'''usic '''Man'''man.]]
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:Metro Man seems to regret how much of a jerk he was to Megamind when they were children, and as evidenced by his faith that Megamind was meant to be a hero, understands that he had a hand in making Megamind originally see himself as a villain]].
* BrattyHalfPint: In their childhood, Metro Man would frequently act like a SmugSuper jerk to Megamind.
* BrokenAce: [[spoiler: Despite being the beloved hero and his amazing superpowers, he realized that he was pushed into the role of hero like Megamind was to being a villain. Using his superspeed to slow time relative to himself, he goes to clear his mind, ended up reading some self-help books, and then faked his death so he could retire]].
* TheCape: Wears an actual cape and is the good guy.
* CaptainErsatz: He's almost a carbon copy of {{Superman}}. More specifically the Superdickery and seemingly limitless power-level makes him one for Silver Age Superman.
* ChickMagnet: Many of ladies go ''ga-ga'' over him.
* ComicallyInvincibleHero: Nothing can hurt him, except for copper. [[spoiler:Or so it seems]].
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Had Metro Man not been such a jerk (along with the other kids and teacher) to Megamind in their childhood, the latter wouldn't have decided he was "supposed to be the bad guy".
* DisappearedDad: In a weird reversal, Metro Man's adoptive parents are hinted to be very uninterested (his father doesn't even look up from his newspaper when he's flying as a baby), while Megamind's adoptive "parents" (the prison inmates) treat him warmly like family, despite teaching him {{Family Unfriendly Aesop}}s.
* DreadfulMusician: [[spoiler: ~I have eyes/That can see/Right through leeeeeeaaaaad!~]]
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:{{Subverted}}. Even when Hal threatens the city, Metroman refuses to help]].
* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler:His 'corpse' was just a classroom skeleton he wrapped in his cape and tossed at Megamind's lair]].
* FlyingBrick: Superhuman strength with the ability to fly.
* FriendlyEnemy: To Megamind. He's even called him "buddy".
* GeniusBruiser: Played with. In the Prequel comic, Megamind makes their rivalry out as Brains vs. Brawn. Yet his flashback shows that he's not the DumbMuscle Megamind indicated he was; [[spoiler:but even so, his scenes as Music Man seem to hint that he can still be bit of a [[TheDitz ditz]]]].
* HeroicBuild: Is a superhero with a ridiculously buff physique.
* HeroicFatigue: [[spoiler: A variation. He wasn't sick of helping people, but felt like he never had a true choice in the matter and decided to retire by faking his death]].
* HumanAlien: Like Megamind, he's also from a far away planet. Unlike Megamind, aside from the ridiculously buff physique, he looks pretty much human.
* {{Hunk}}: A huge superhero with handsome features.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: [[spoiler:He's tired of being the Hero [[SlaveToPR just because it's expected of him]], so he [[FakingTheDead fakes his death]] and goes into hiding so he can be left alone to do his own thing]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: A SmugSuper who used to bully Megamind before really getting to know him. However, he does care for the citizens of Metro City and is [[spoiler:genuinely proud of Megamind becoming Metro City's new defender]].
* LanternJawOfJustice: Has one big jaw for his crime fighting.
* LastOfHisKind: Like Megamind, Metroman is (presumably given the reference, though we never actually see his homeworld destroyed) the last of his alien species.
* LightIsGood: Wears all white, in contrast with Megamind's black ensemble.
* ManInWhite: Invoked to initially lessen sympathy for Metroman and emphasize his supposed perfection. [[spoiler: It makes his emotional depth all the more surprising, as he initially seemed to be a simple, shallow SmugSuper.]]
* NoNameGiven: He has no secret identity. [[spoiler: This turns out to be part of his problem]].
* TheNotLoveInterest: To Roxanne. She confirms they were never anything more than just friends.
* PeekABooCorpse: [[spoiler:Turns out to be fake]].
* PlatonicLifePartners: [[spoiler: The press ''assumed'' he was sweet on Roxanne, but he's not her type]].
* PunchClockHero: [[spoiler:Fought evil because it was the only thing he knew how to do. Eventually he opts out]].
* RetiredBadass: [[spoiler:Officially gives up his life as a superhero]].
* TheRival: Megamind has viewed him as this since they were young boys.
* SlaveToPR: [[spoiler:He's the person society wants him to be, not the person he wants to be]].
* SmugSuper: Started off as one. He grew out of it.
* SoProudOfYou: [[spoiler:A hidden Metro Man to Megamind, though the latter never hears it. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming]].
* StartingANewLife: [[spoiler: He [[FakingTheDead pretends to be vaporized]] so he can pursue a... erm... [[DreadfulMusician "music" career]]]].
* StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler:He's revealed to be a Type A as a superhero]].
* StrippedToTheBone: [[spoiler:Supposedly]].
* SuperSpeed: See his [[spoiler:TimeStandsStill]] section.
* SuperStrength: Can smash through anything without so much as a scratch.
* {{Superdickery}}: The reason the trailers portrays him as a SmugSuper.
* TimeStandsStill: [[spoiler:Revealed to be one his powers]].
* TookALevelInKindness: He went from bullying Megamind in their childhood to [[spoiler:genuinely being proud of him.]]
* WeaksauceWeakness: According to himself, his weakness is copper. [[spoiler:Turns out, he was lying. What his real weakness is, if he has ''any'', is anyone's guess]].
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: Roxanne calls him out for ''intentionally'' leaving Metro City at the hands of a supervillain. However, he knows Megamind better than anybody and figured that the city wouldn't be in any serious danger]].
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: [[spoiler:Believes this of Megamind]].

* DudeMagnet: Gets the attention of [[AffablyEvil Megamind,]] [[TheCape Metro Man,]] and [[PsychopathicManchild Hal.]] [[spoiler:Turns out she and Metro Man weren't a couple. Obviously doesn't end up with [[{{Yandere}} Hal]]. She becomes an item with Megamind]].

* MagicSkirt: Her blue cocktail dress.

** "Roxanne" in the Greek form of the Persian or Bactrian name روشنک (Roshanak) can mean "bright", alluding to her being a BrainyBrunette and OnlySaneWoman.
** Roxanne's not the first Roxanne to be [[Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac wooed by an ugly genius posing as someone else]].
* MoralityPet: [[spoiler:Becomes one to Megamind when the villain started to do good things for her sake. And the only reason he even decided to save Metro City was because ''she'' was endangered]].
* NiceGirl: Don't let her snarkiness fool you, Roxanne is a sensitive and selfless person, who truly believes that [[AllLovingHero everyone has goodness in them.]]
* TheNotLoveInterest: [[spoiler:She and Metro Man were not a couple, though the public at large assumed they were]].
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler:With Megamind]].
* OnlySaneWoman: {{Justified}} given she had the most normal life of the cast.
* PluckyGirl: In spite of not being an ActionGirl, she spend the entire later half of the film trying to fight in any way she can to the bitter end when things get really serious and holds on to a faith in [[JusticeWillPrevail the powers of good]] [[HopeSpringsEternal at even the bleakest times]].
* SeenItAll: When it comes to Megamind's dastardly plots and deathtraps.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: [[spoiler:She gets to know, and falls for, [[NobleDemon the real Megamind]] [[BeneathTheMask behind the]] [[JerkassFacade villain persona]] when he's [[LovesMyAlterEgo under the guise]] of nerdy, unassuming "Bernard". They get together for real once he completes his HeelFaceTurn]].

* WideEyedIdealist: According to Titan, she believes that there is at least some good in everyone, [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism in spite of her generally sarcastic attitude]]. [[spoiler:He then proceeds to prove her wrong]].

[[folder:Hal Stewart/[[spoiler:Titan/"Tighten"]]]]
[[quoteright:314:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tightwad_2072.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JonahHill

Roxanne's cameraman.
----
* AbhorrentAdmirer: To Roxanne.
* AscendedFanboy: Deconstructed. [[spoiler: As a regular human he secretly despises Metro Man because he thinks Roxanne is in love with him. When he gets superpowers he abuses them trying to impress Roxanne and, when rejected, goes on a selfish, childish rampage]].
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: Whenever he gets angry- special note goes to when he discovers Megamind's deception]].
* BeneathTheMask: [[spoiler: Titan's not nearly as heroic as Megamind hoped he would be]].
* BewareTheSuperman: [[spoiler: Uses his newfound powers to take over the city]].
* BeingGoodSucks: He decides that being good has no immediate or long-term benefits despite the tremendous amount of work he's required to put in after being rejected by Roxanne.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:While Megamind is responsible for giving him his destructive power, Titan is the one who chose to use them for his own psychopathic amusement]].
* BigBadSlippage: [[spoiler: Was nothing overtly malevolent before getting his powers, was creepily going after Roxanne after getting his powers, and was a threat after Roxanne rejected his advances.]]
* ButtMonkey: Gets the most physical slapstick in the movie.
* CaptainErsatz: Hal is ComicBook/JimmyOlsen with the caveat that he has always hated Superman, [[spoiler: and when he becomes Titan, he takes on aspects of Superboy-Prime]].
* CardCarryingVillain: [[spoiler: "This town isn't big enough for ''two'' supervillains." Unlike Megamind, he doesn't wear it like a flag and only because of his anger of not getting what he wanted does he accept the villainous title.]]
* ChaoticStupid: [[spoiler:Initially, but turns ChaoticEvil and SelfishEvil after Roxannne explicitly states that she doesn't want to be with him]].
* TheDitz: Hal's also the dumbest in the story.
* DoggedNiceGuy: [[spoiler: Averted when he decides that he is entitled to have Roxanne]].
* DrunkWithPower: [[spoiler: Not long after getting his powers, Hal decides that he'd rather use them for his own gain, rather than take on the responsibility of protecting the city]].
* EntitledToHaveYou: [[spoiler: "You're supposed to be with ME!"]]
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: One of the things he cites as [[AndThisIsFor a reason to beat Megamind]] when attacking Megamind after finding out [[spoiler:that 'Space Dad' was Megamind in disguise]] is that Megamind [[spoiler:lied to Space Stepmom]], so Hal ''can'' consider the feelings of others, sometimes. It also shows that Hal isn't the smartest, but that's not really news at that point.
* EvilCounterpart: He is this to both [[AntiVillain Megamind]] and [[TheAce Metroman]].
** With Megamind: Physically, Megamind is skinnier and Hal is fatter [[spoiler:(muscular after getting Metro Man's powers)]], and the former is brilliant and the latter seems to have below average intelligence. Both of them have strong romantic feelings for Roxanne, [[spoiler:but she genuinely comes to like Megamind because [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan he's a good man]], and when she's angry at his deception and doesn't want to see him again, he respects her wishes; [[{{Yandere}} Hal's reaction]] to not getting her affections is to destroy Metro City and attempt to ''kill her''. Also, while Megamind may appear to be a "Bad Guy," he [[HiddenDepths turns out to have a strong moral compass]]; Hal, who appears to be a DoggedNiceGuy, is just a [[EntitledToHaveYou self-entitled]] [[PsychopathicManchild psychopath]].]]
** With Metro Man: [[spoiler:Both are set up to be rivals to Megamind. Metro Man was born with his powers, Hal was only given his powers through Megamind's plans. While Metro Man appeared to be a bully to Megamind in their childhood, he mellows out and even entrusts Metro City in his hands; Hal is first seen as a seemingly nice guy, until he turns out to be an insanely jealous, controlling, petty jerk. In regards to Roxanne, Metro Man is good friends with her and is okay with that, while Hal was willing to ''kill'' her just because she wouldn't return his feelings.]]
* EvilIsPetty: [[spoiler: Went on a rampage just because Roxanne wouldn't return his feelings]].
* EvilRedhead: [[spoiler: He has red hair. He becomes evil after gaining superpowers]].
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: After [[spoiler:being given superpowers by the eponymous villain, he gains his voice actor's signature hairstyle]].
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: Started off as a decent enough guy, but quickly becomes a {{Jerkass}} because Roxanne didn't want to be with him]].
* FieryRedhead: [[spoiler:Moreso after becoming Tighten]].
* FlyingBrick: [[spoiler: After gaining all of Metro Man's powers]].
* ForTheEvulz: [[spoiler: Hal believes being evil is more fun than being good]].
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler: Goes form a dorky cameraman that even the audience doesn't think much of to almost leveling the city]].
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: His drawing of himself and Megamind had him holding Megamind's leash.
* GiveGeeksAChance: Subverted and thoroughly deconstructed. Hal is introduced as a painfully awkward nerd who is completely in love with Roxanne, though she just sees him as a workmate. [[spoiler:After Megamind gives him superpowers and (unwittingly) encourages him to make his move, he's revealed to be an EntitledToHaveYou PsychopathicManChild who [[IfICantHaveYou doesn't take rejection well]]. What? Just because he's a nerd and likes Roxanne doesn't automatically make him a good person or secretly the man of her dreams.]]
* HeroAntagonist: [[spoiler: Very, very subverted]].
* IdiotHero: [[spoiler:Although less "hero" and more "villain"]].
* IfICantHaveYou: [[spoiler: Roxanne's rejecting him is what initiates his StartOfDarkness]].
* ItsAllAboutMe: [[spoiler:To a darker and scarily realistic version than Megamind]].
* {{Jerkass}}: [[spoiler: Turns out to be a {{Yandere}} asshole with an entitlement complex]].
* JerkassHasAPoint: When he tells Roxanne "You never took the time to know me." Kinda hard to blame her for that, but still... It's pretty much the only thing he is right about which becomes more obvious when Roxanne tries to convince him to become his old self who liked what he was only to take the answer that he ''did not'' like what he was.
* LightIsNotGood: [[spoiler: He acted like the dogged nice and socially awkward everyday dork until he got powers and didn't get his way. Even then he kept using lighter colors than Megamind because unlike Megamind he didn't care much about presentation but more about just getting his way. He would't mind playing the hero if he got what he wanted.]]
* NeverMyFault: A cornerstone of Hal's personality. He hurts his hand banging it against the van? It's the stupid van's fault. Roxanne rejects his advances? It's not because he came on too strong or too creepy (or, [[EntitledToHaveYou Heaven forbid, she's just not interested]]), ''she'' just doesn't appreciate what a NiceGuy he is. [[spoiler:His PsychopathicManchild tantrum on the city puts him in a bad light? ''Megamind'' made a fool out of him.]] Megamind finally [[ReasonYouSuckSpeech calls him out on this]] near the end of the film.
-->'''Hal/[[spoiler:Tighten]]:''' This is the last time you make a fool out of me!\\
'''Megamind:''' [[spoiler:I made you a hero.]] You did the ''fool'' thing all by yourself!
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Constantly invades Roxanne's personal boundaries.
* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:Megamind generally goes to ridiculous extremes in lashing out at the world to get attention, but Hal nearly levels the city in a selfish rampage]].
* PsychopathicManchild: [[spoiler: His reign as Tighten is basically one long, protracted temper tantrum. He also has a clown at his birthday party and generally misses important engagements to play video games.]]
* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler:Megamind tells him a woman he saves would be his, but when Hal finds out that women don't work that way, he does not take it well. Also, being the self-absorbed person he is, just because he's given superpowers doesn't mean he'll use his powers for altruistic reasons. After Roxanne's rejection of Hal, Megamind learned it the hard way.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler: His eyes glow bright red when he uses his heat-vision, and once he starts getting out of control, his irises turn dark red.]]
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: Hal apparently thinks Titan is spelled "Tighten". [[spoiler:He's even named such in the credits and art book]].
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: [[spoiler: He knows full well that no-one can stop him from doing whatever he wants]].
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: [[spoiler: Roxanne tries talking some sense into Titan, saying that she knows there's still good in him. He simply scoffs at her that she sees good in ''everyone'', even when it's not there]].
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Most people still aren't entirely sure if his name is officially spelt Titan or Tighten. While it seems that [[spoiler:Megamind originally wanted it to be 'Titan', Hal himself writes it as 'Tighten']], and official printed media such as the "Art of" book, the character poster and the closing credits spell his name the same way.
* StalkerWithACrush: To Roxanne.
** What takes it to a new level is the following quote being literal:
---> '''Hal''': There's this [[ShallowLoveInterest really good-looking]] one I've got my eye on currently. ''*[[GilliganCut zoom to]] Roxanne in her apartment as seen through Hal's [[spoiler:[[SuperSenses super vision]]*]]''
* SuperStrength: [[spoiler: Among Metro Man's powers, which he receives.]]
* TakeOverTheCity: [[spoiler: Never seems concerned with anything beyond Metro City.]]
* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler:The "real Hal," in response to Roxanne's IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:In a very dark way once Megamind gives him Metro Man's power]].
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler:Loses all of his sympathy points when he tries to ''kill'' Roxanne just because she didn't want to be his girlfriend. Bonus points for saying ''she'' was the one who hurt him.]]
* TheUnfettered: [[spoiler: Which makes him much more dangerous than Megamind or Metro Man]].
* VirtueIsWeakness: As mentioned above, [[spoiler: he mocks Roxanne's belief that there's good in everyone.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Just look at all the white in this folder!
* WeCanRuleTogether: [[spoiler: When he first unveils his desire to be a villain, he offers Megamind a partnership. As Titan's sidekick, of course]].
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler: What happens when an unstable, stalkerish man is given superpowers.]]
* {{Yandere}}: [[spoiler: Again, to Roxanne. Even before she rejects him, he ''throws her into traffic'' just so he can "save" her and they can hook up.]]

[[folder:Minion]]
[[quoteright:328:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/megamind_3_1409.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/DavidCross

Megamind's friend from his homeworld, a small fish designed as his minion.
----
* AdorableEvilMinion: Who would have though a fish for a minion could be so cute.
* {{Adorkable}}: Minion is a dorky, "yes-man" who loves to be melodramatic.
* AffablyEvil: Even moreso than Megamind. In fact, he [[PunchClockVillain quite possibly has the]] [[NiceGuy most pleasant personality]] of the entire cast.
* BadassBiker: [[spoiler:When he's disguised as Megamind]].
* BeleagueredAssistant: Played with. For the most part, he takes his boss' screw-ups - and blaming for the screw-ups - in stride, but he still has his exasperated moments.
-->'''Roxanne:''' (to Megamind) Your plan's failing! Just ''admit it.''
-->'''Minion:''' Yeah, good luck with ''that'' one...
* TheBigGuy: [[spoiler:After his HeelFaceTurn]].
* BrownEyes: To show he's more down to earth than Megamind.
* TheBrute: Thanks to his mecha suit, Minion has quite a muscular body.
* CardCarryingVillain: Like Megamind, he embraces being a villain.
* TheDragon: He's Megamind's top enforcer.
* DragonInChief: Minion is arguably a more competent villain than his boss. He often counsels pragmatism (why are we ''making another hero to fight us'' again? Can't we just enjoy the good life?) but is constantly overrode by Megamind's approach to villainy.
* {{Evil Minion|s}}: Though he's alot nicer than the standard.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Along with Megamind]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Megamind, since infanthood.
* HisNameReallyIsBarkeep: Megamind's parents first referred to him as "minion" and the name just stuck.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: It's reasonable to assume that Megamind would've wound up far worse a villain [[AffablyEvil than]] [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain he]] [[NobleDemon did]] without Minion's companionship.
* TheLancer: [[spoiler:In contrast to Megamind's TheHero status]].
* LoyalAnimalCompanion: He is a fish. ...Or at least an alien that looks like one.
* MeaningfulName: Minion is Megamind's number one ''minion''.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: He's so pleasant throughout the entire film, that it's highly likely that he went along with Megamind's evil plans less because of being evil and more because it seemed to make his master/friend happy.
* MobileFishbowl: He's a fish-like alien in a large mecha-suit.
* MoralityPet: It's pretty much a given that if Minion wasn't Megamind's friend, that the said supervillain would be a lot worse.
* NiceGuy: Yes, even as a villain's henchman. ''And'' an [[DarkIsNotEvil alien-angler-in-ape-mecha-suit monstrosity]].
* OnlyFriend: Again, to Megamind.
* OnlySaneMan: He's only second to Roxanne.
* PunchClockVillain: Minion is actually a nice guy.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Just like his master.
* ShoutOut: His robot gorilla body is based on [[Film/RobotMonster Ro-Man]].
* VillainousFriendship: With Megamind. Minion's UndyingLoyalty to his boss is his most prominent virtue.
* YesMan: As [[WordOfGod described by the filmmakers]]: "He might suggest that jumping off a building isn't the best idea, but in the end, he wouldn't stop [Megamind]; he would just race to the bottom and build a net."

[[folder:Bernard]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Bernard2.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/BenStiller

A bored worker at the museum.
----
* TheChewToy: He's immediately captured by Megamind and has his identity stolen.
* DeadpanSnarker: "I'm not allowed to insult guests ''directly''."
* DullSurprise: Barely reacted to seeing Megamind, though in his defense he [Bernard] thought that Megamind was fake.
* {{Jerkass}}: His only real on-screen moments involve insulting people.
* {{Megane}}: Wears glasses and is quite handsome.
* NerdsAreSexy: Knows everything about Megamind and is very good looking when he's not slouched over.
* PerpetualFrowner: He never smiles when he's actually on the scene.

[[folder:The Warden]]
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_3682721.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JKSimmons

The warden of Megamind's prison, and the closest thing to a father he has.
----
* BadassMustache: Sports a nifty one.
* BullyingADragon: His taunting of Megamind at the beginning of the movie. [[LaserGuidedKarma He paid for it later.]]
* DaChief: Of the entire Metro City prison.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He is only addressed as 'warden' in the movie.
* InspectorJavert: Megamind has broken so many times out of prison and has been such a CardCarryingVillain for so long that the one time Megamind is seriously acting with repentance and wishing to use his abilities to help people he doesn't wants to hear it.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He was pretty supportive of Megamind and Minion when they [[spoiler:went off to fight Hal/Titan/Tighten]].
* ParentalSubstitute: It's heavily implied he was a father figure for kid Megamind.
