Characters: Megas XLR

    open/close all folders 

    MEGAS 
The main robot itself. Originally in the future to be sent two years in the past so that humanity can defeat the Glorft. However, an attack from the aliens sent the mech back to the early 20th century instead, and it stayed there for decades until Coop unearthed it in a Jersey City junkyard. The... extensive modifications he made to Megas serve him well in the ensuing conflicts against the Glorft.

  • Empathic Weapon: Megas is not actually sentient, but Coop treats it as if it were a person. Also, Megas' arsenal has activation controls that lampshade the current situation, implying a certain form of communication between the robot and its pilot.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Mechanized Earth Guard Attack System
  • Humongous Mecha
  • Primary-Color Champion: It's car/head is red, while the rest of its body is blue.

    Main Characters 

"Coop" Cooplowski

Voiced by: David DeLuise

Coop: "All right, you alien chumps! You're in MY town and nobody gets to wreck it. (Record Scratch) Uh...Except for me!"

Coop is MEGAS' current owner. He lives in his mother's basement in Jersey City, and is a fan of video games, Pay-Per-View wrestling, cheesy monster movies, cars, and overeating.

  • Acrofatic: His reflexes are surprisingly good for someone his size.
  • Big Eater: In reference to Coop's performance during an eating contest, Jamie says that Coop doesn't get sick, he just gets less hungry.
  • Badass: He's the pilot of a giant robot, what did you expect?
    Coop: You're not giving me a lot of options here. We're gonna blow up if we fight and they're gonna paste us if we don't! (enemy robots surround Megas) Blow up it is!
  • Big Fun: There's nothing Coop loves more than playing video games and eating grotesque amounts of food.
  • Destructive Savior: He tends to cause a fair bit of destruction due to using extreme methods to deal with the Monster of the Week.
    Kiva: (Surprised) Amazing! You defeated the enemy, and you didn't have to destroy a planet to do it.
  • Determinator: Nowhere is this more evident than when he's fighting an evil AU version of himself.
    Evil Coop: You know you don't have a chance.
    Coop: I don't know nuthin!
  • Genius Ditz: Keep in mind he was able to repair a broken mecha from the future while still upgrading it as time goes by in spite of being who he is.
  • Good Is Dumb: But he is capable of Achievements in Ignorance.
  • The Hero: He is the main character and the pilot of Megas.
  • Hero Insurance: It's lampshaded that he often does more damage than the villain!
  • Hot-Blooded: Especially after he gets pissed off.
  • Idiot Hero: Most events in the series are caused by this.
    Coop: "For SOME reason, everyone keeps calling ME-The Bad Guy! I may not be the best guy...But I sure ain't no bad guy!"
  • Idiot Savant: Was somehow able to bring Megas, a Humongous Mecha from the future into working order despite his regular showings of competence.
  • I Take Offense to That Last One: During the final confrontation with the monster of the day, he will typically list the three most terrible things the bad guy did to him and the third one is always the most trivial.
  • Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds: He doesn't MEAN to destroy New Jersey (usually). His fights just tend to level the city most of the time.
  • Mundane Utility: Zig-zagged. MEGAS' head is his car, so he uses that for travel, but is prone to using the whole mech for some things like playing around.
  • Neet: He's a rare example of one that isn't a shut in computer geek.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He's only ever called Coop, even by his mother. His last name is revealed to be Cooplowski, but no first name is given.
  • Primary-Color Champion: A red jacket and a pair of jeans.

Jamie

Voiced by: Steven Blum

Jamie: "I don't have any other friends, okay? You take Coop on this "save the world" gig and I'm left with nothing."

Relatively harmless slacker who regularly sleeps on Coop's couch and camps on MEGAS' backseat, whining. Has occasional milliseconds of bravery and intelligence, but mostly just acts as straight-man to the insanity of his friend's robot piloting adventures.

  • Butt Monkey: He is the prime target of mockery and physical abuse in the show.
  • Cowardly Sidekick: Whenever there is a bad guy around, he will scream in terror while Coop and Kiva work to solve the problem.
  • Lovable Coward: Even so, Coop and Kiva consider him a good friend.
  • Neet: And apparently has no skills to make up for it.
  • Power Perversion Potential: First to come up with the idea after Coop shows him Megas.
    Jamie: "Coop, do you realize what we could do with this thing?"
  • Token Evil Teammate: Usually visualizes taking over the world and making his friends his servants and the first thing he thought of if he controlled MEGAS was to rob Fort Knox.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "Rearview Mirror Mirror", after Alternate Reality!Coop decimated the Earth, Alternate Reality!Jamie was left behind and became the leader of the Earth's resistance, and became a pretty capable mech pilot to boot.

Commander Kiva Andru, Earth Coalition Space Force

Voiced by: Wendee Lee

Kiva: "This is Commander Kiva Andru of the Earth Coalition. That robot you're piloting is a very dangerous weapon and I want it back."

Time-traveling Ace test pilot from the year 3037 and MEGAS' original pilot. When Earth fell to the Glorft, she and MEGAS were sent back to the 21st century in order to prepare the world for the inevitable conflict. However, upon arriving in 2004, she found that MEGAS had arrived seven decades earlier, spent much of the interval rusting in a Jersey junkyard - and was ultimately salvaged and modified beyond her capability to pilot by Coop. Making the best of an insane situation, she reluctantly assumed the role of Coop's tactical adviser against the Glorft.

Goat

Voiced by: Scot Rienecker

Jamie: Hey Goat, this guy is even creepier than you.
Goat: No kidding. (Beat) Hey, wait a minute!

Between catching a tan on a scrap hill or relaxing in his favourite lawn chair, Goat is the owner and operator of the junkyard in which Coop found MEGAS. Like Jamie, he tries to hit on girls (usually Kiva) and falls just a bit short. He is the same character from MTV's Downtown, sharing the same voice actor and some of the staff of this series.

  • Casanova Wannabe: Subverted. Most of the time his efforts to impress women (especially Kiva) fail however he has been successful a few times.

  • The Cameo: Usually appears spectating Coop's wacky hinjinks from afar.

Tiny

Voiced by: Kevin Michael Richardson

  • Cool Car: His deserves special mention in being able to go toe-to-toe with MEGAS in a car competition.

Georgie

Voiced by: Kevin Michael Richardson

A video game expert much like Coop, only he isn't as good as him. He also seems to be fond of the Lurps and plays their game series, which is apparently the only game series Coop never played.

  • Expy: the Lurps are obviously a parody of the Smurfs

Gina

Voiced by: Rachael Mac Farlane

A girl Jamie tried to date, she thought he had a nice car (which was actually Coop's). So Jamie lied to get her to go for a ride which ended up turning into a cat and mouse chase with the Glorft until Coop regained control of MEGAS.

  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Is quite lax about the whole giant robot appearances.

Crab like aliens who perform transporting and clean-up tasks. Florxin is the tall cynical one and Tolbit is the short clueless one.

The chieftain of the Cryhocks i.e. "Space Bigfoots". He is the leader of his tribe of Cryhocks who lived in an ice village.

Comet voiced by: Tara Strong
Pulsar voiced by: Tara Strong

R.E.G.I.S. Mark 5

Voiced by: Michael Dorn

R.E.G.I.S.: I am the Replicant Engineered for Galactic Infiltration and Sabotage Mark V. I cannot be stopped. You have been warned.

An advanced and powerful alien robot gone horribly awry, it was supposed to be dumped into a black hole by a cloaked ship flown by Florxin and Tolbit. Unfortunately, Coop damaged the ship and the R.E.G.I.S landed on Earth.

  • Achilles' Heel: Requires solar power to function. Without a constant supply it becomes useless until it is exposed to sun light again.
  • From a Single Cell: Was created with highly advanced a nano-technology that can allow him to continually regenerate, grow and multiply with adequate power.
  • Noble Demon: Despite actively trying to eliminate everyone and everything it's mannerisms are rather polite even when threatening others.
R.E.G.I.S.: Surrender now, and I will destroy you peacefully.

Voiced by: Beau Billingslea

Grrkek: Now you'll see why they call me Grrkek the Planet Killer. (pause) Actually, you'll be too dead to see anything. But you get the idea.

A giant space alien that can kill planets who cares for nothing but destruction and misery. He was sealed away long ago, but was released by Coop when he was testing a new game, not knowing it was a containment cartridge.

Grrkek.: I should thank you for releasing me. Instead I shall destroy you.

Ender

Ender.: I'm Ender. I end things. People, planets, galaxies!

One of the S-Force's enemies. He "ends things. People, planets, galaxies". Ender appeared while Coop was fighting the S-Force and wanted to partner with Coop to rule the universe together. But, when Coop insisted he was good and refused Ender's offer, he instead fought with Coop.

Robotic Worms

Voiced by:

Giant silicon-based biomechencial worms that are attracted to and feed on pure energy. They were living on a deserted ring-world that was actually an interstellar data storage drive.

Voiced by:

Jamie.: No you haven't! That thing's a flippin' planet!

Planet-Eating Monster: A planet-sized space monster that feeds on radio and television waves. Coop accidentally transmitted a powerful, hi-frequency radio wave into space which caught the monster's attention when Coop tried to "juice" his satellite dish to boost his television reception. After Jamie suggested that the satellite was down, the trio found the monster in space eating TV satellites.

Darklos

Voiced by: Tia Carrere

A space alien bounty hunter chick who was wanted in several nebulas for kidnapping and information trafficking. She was ordered to find and capture Kiva Andru so her clients could extract information from her brain.

Evil Coop

Voiced by: David DeLuise
  • Badass: As an alternate version of Coop, this is to be expected. Not only does he destroy Megas, he nearly kills the regular Coop.
  • Blood Knight: Essentially, an more unhinged and aggressive version of Coop, if that's even possible. Defeating the Glorft did not satisfy Coop, triggering his descent into evil.
  • Char Clone: Ironic, since his enemy is an alternate version of himself.
  • Evil Counterpart: Three guesses to whom.
  • Foil: To Coop. Coop is be a fat, bumbling hero while Evil Coop is muscular, serious villain.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His arrival marked the one time the show took itself semi-seriously.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His robot's color scheme.
  • Unlucky Thirteen: A bad guy with the number thirteen painted on his armor.

Evil Kiva

Voiced by: Wendee Lee

Alternate Jamie

Voiced by: Steven Blum

Gorrath: I demand to know who's in charge here!
Alternate Jamie: That would me. And I don't think you're in a position to demand anything.

The leader of the resistance force in an alternate dimension. He is the hero of that Earth who fights against the evil forces of Coop and his army of robots. He apparently had a relationship with Kiva, but she left with Coop and became evil. Alternate Jamie is a love scorn, battle-hardened man with a knee brace. This version of Jamie is actually the polar opposite of the original Jamie, being very brave and fit.

  • Cynicism Catalyst: Seeing Coop become a ruthless global conqueror and Kiva his brainwashed slave were painful experiences to him.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Leader of the resistance force against Alternate Coop
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Subverted. He has an "evil scar" as we are led to believe he's the bad guy at first until it turns out he's actually the hero.
