Deadpan Snarker: He's pretty disrespectful, especially when it comes to the gods.
Establishing Character Moment: In the first issue, he's the only one to notice meteorite coming at him and tricks Nooby into switching places with him. He also talks smack to the other pygmies and is the only one not to be killed by the meteorite.
Heterosexual Life-Partners: Becomes Nooby's best friend after initially using him as a target for his pranks. When Nooby asks the cosmic wayfinder which Pygmy loves him the most, it pointed to Ooga. They become so close, that when Newbie kills Nooby for good, Ooga flies into a seething rage.
Character Development: He's the most religious of all the pygmies, but Ooga meeting the gods instead of him started to make him question his faith in them. After meeting ghosts on a haunted island, he starts to believe in them again.
Glasgow Grin: Interestingly, only the left side of his face has such a scar.
Grew a Spine: His character development left him a lot more independent and opinionated. This is especially noticeable in "The Pygmies Strike Back", where he's the most vocal and untrusting of Klik's plan and the bird men.
The Klutz: His clumsiness usually leads to his death.
Granola Boy: He'll sometimes say spiritual things, though no one seems to care.
Hidden Depths: Despite his aversion to violence, he'll fight vigorously to protect the tribe; as shown in issue 22.
The Pollyanna: He never loses his cool, even when he's about to die.
The Stoner: While he's never seen using any drugs, he's usually a calm, laid-back fellow. Even his name is another word for marijuana. In one instance, he gets excited when he finds a bunch of mushrooms to make brownies with and doesn't realize he's about to get stepped on by a T. Rex.
Establishing Character Moment: In the first issue, Nooby is tricked by Ooga into trading places with him, bissfully unaware of the meteorite that's about to flatten him.
Fluffy Tamer: He tames a T. Rex and names him Chicken. Unfortunately, the island's not big enough to keep him and Nooby releases him into the ocean.

Malaproper: Constantly gets words and phrases wrong.
OOC Is Serious Business: In issue 25, while he's about to killed for good by Newbie, Nooby starts speaking coherently to relate with his clone. Everyone is shocked and he gives a heartfelt goodbye to his friends as he dies.
Goth: Her appearance is based on goth culture. She also has a fascination with death, which leads to her giving her resurrection powers a workout.
In Harm's Way: She takes advantage of her resurrection abilities to put herself in danger for thrills. When the girls's Jewel of Life is destroyed, she persuades Klak into doing dangerous things for her amusement as she is mortal without the Jewel.

The Prankster: Even though she's Klak's best friend, she likes to convince him to do deadly stunts.
Badass Bookworm: She may be small and nerdy, but she single-handedly takes on the laser shark and removes its laser gun.
Birds of a Feather: When she meets fellow scientist Klik, the two start spending a lot of time together because of their interests in science. She even says he's the first person that showed her respect.
Character Development: She was quite shy because her interest in science led to her not getting a lot of respect from her fellow girls. When she and Klik make a new Jewel of Life for the girls, they give her the respect she deserves and her confidence swells.
Gadgeteer Genius: Moreso than Klik. Her hut is filled to the brim with inventions.
My Species Doth Protest Too Much: One Bubble Breather, Troin, was exiled from his tribe because he refused to blow bubbles. He also doesn't have a verbal tic because he's by himself. Once he's offered to return to his tribe, he gives a delighted, "I doTroin!".
The Hyena: Occasionally giggles between his sentences.
Narrator All Along: Turns out to be the narrator of issue 14; where he's seen at the end clinging to the pygmies' boat.
Our Ghosts Are Different: Something happened to his tribe that left them as ghosts when they died. While most of the ghosts re-live their experiences, Darby does what he pleases. He doesn't want to talk about what happened to himself.
Character Development: He started off plain evil and wanted to kill Nooby to prove he was superior. His brush with death made realize his mortality and he would now rather gain immortality than kill his predecessor.
Cloning Blues: Unlike the other pygmies, he's not bound to an immortality gem. He tries to compensate by transferring the energy of the girls' jewel to his own uncut one, but it backfires.

Evil Twin: To Nooby. Unlike him, Newbie's smart and talks normally.
Irony: Unlike the other pygmies, who are immortal, but die often, Newbie is mortal, but survives everything that happens to him.
Mutilation Conga: Every time he's defeated, he gets more and more banged up. In his first defeat, he was impaled by an icicle. He had to wait for it melt and it left him with a nasty scar. The second time, a temple collapses on him. Many issues later, it's revealed that he survived, but is so jacked up that he needs a crutch to walk. He just wants immortality to end the pain.
