!Main Characters


''Format:'' Guardian

-->Voiced by: Michael Benyaer (first two seasons, [[spoiler:Megabyte's impersonation and Glitch-restored Bob in season four]]), Creator/IanJamesCorlett (seasons three and four [[spoiler:before Glitch restores him to how he was before he went to the Web]])

-->''"I come from the Net. Through systems, people, and cities, to this place - Mainframe. My format, Guardian: To mend and defend. To defend my new found friends, their hopes and dreams, and to defend them from their enemies."''

[[caption-width-right:350:"This is bad. ''Very'' bad."]]TheHero. Bob is a Guardian. The Guardians are the net's equivalent to a police force, based in the Super Computer. Their purpose is to mend and defend: repairing damage caused by tears and fighting viruses. Assisted by his Keytool Glitch, Bob has been assigned as the Guardian of the small system of Mainframe, defending the locals from their two resident viruses: Megabyte and Hexadecimal. In Mainframe, Bob is looked up as some sort of SuperHero, especially by young Enzo, who dreams of becoming a Guardian himself. Bob is more prone to the IndyPloy in comparison to Dot's TheChessmaster approach. Had a WillTheyOrWontThey thing going with Dot, until they decided to get married.

!!Tropes associated with Bob:

* BetterThanNew: Both Bob and Glitch come back from their near death experience tougher.
* BigGood: Being a Guardian, he's technically the highest ranking of the good guys, but Phong's the local ruler.
* BigBrotherMentor: For Enzo.
* BlueIsHeroic: Bob's so heroic, his ''skin'' is blue.
* CatchPhrase:
** "I don't ''think'' so!"
** "This is bad. This is ''very'' bad"
** "Not good! This is ''not'' good!"
** "Stay frosty!"
** And when he's ''really perturbed,'' (like when he's stuck in a parody of Pokemon) "THAT'S SICK!"
* CharacterDevelopment: Many fans noticed that Bob's portrayal after returning in Season 3 was a bit different. He was noticeably less cocky and impulsive than in earlier seasons, and comes off as a bit OlderAndWiser. Considering the events of the Season 2 finale and Season 3, this makes perfect sense.
* ChickMagnet: Dot, Mouse, and Hex have all expressed interest in him to varying degrees.[[note]]Mouse and Hex are far more aggressive while Dot doesn't openly express affection for him until Season 3.[[/note]] At least one female binome has come on to him too.
* TheChosenMany: The Guardians are an entire organization of chosen heroes.
* CityMouse: He has to be reminded on multiple occasions that [[RunningGag Mainframe is not the Supercomputer]], both in terms of technology and its sense of community.
* CloningBlues: Glitch Bob in ''My Two Bobs'' when another Bob (who looks exactly like Bob originally did) arrives in Mainframe and everyone assumes this Bob to be the original. [[spoiler: It turns out, however, that the other Bob is just Megabyte being a dick and pretending to be him.]]
* {{Determinator}}: "He is a Guardian. He will find a way [[spoiler:to survive the Web, but he needs us to show him the way home]]."
* {{Deuteragonist}}: In the latter half of season 3, with Enzo becoming Matrix and taking more of the lead role.
* TheHero: For two seasons.
* HerosClassicCar: Bob cruises around Mainframe in a red 262 convertible hovercar. When it's not having engine trouble, that is. When it reboots in a racing game, it takes the form of a 50s-style hotrod.
* HollywoodToneDeaf: He's a ''terrible'' singer. [[PlayingWithATrope Yet an incredibly proficient guitar player.]]
* ImaginationBasedSuperpower: Glitch can do pretty much anything that it needs to do for the plot, including deciding for itself what it needs to do to advance the plot.
* IndyPloy: Bob's favored method of dealing with any given situation.
* LastOfHisKind: [[spoiler: During season 4, Bob is the last Guardian that still has a Key tool. Additionally, he was the last Guardian to be infected by Daemon.]]
* MartialPacifist: He repeatedly advocates trying to rehabilitate viruses rather than deleting them.
* MyCarHatesMe: His is the type of car that just won't turn over in the most dire of situations.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: His bickering with a superior kept Kilobyte from being deleted, giving him time to break free, upgrade to Gigabyte and escape to Mainframe where he split into Megabyte and Hexadecimal.]]
* PutOnABus: At the end of Season 2, he's rocketed into the Web by Megabyte; he's absent for most of Season 3 as a result, and Matrix and [=AndrAIa=] make it part of their mission to find him.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Considered a radical among Guardians for his advocacy of rehabilitation for viruses. It works for Hex, but by the end of "Code of Honor" even Bob's starting to get tired of letting Megabyte live.


''Format:'' Keytool

[[quoteright:350:]] Glitch is Bob's keytool. It has the ability to become any object on command, as well as other powers such as analysing the rules of a game. The exact limitations of Glitch's ImaginationBasedSuperpower abilities: it can only do one thing at a time, it's implied it cannot duplicate some of the rarer weapons Bob requisitions from Phong, it doesn't seem capable of turning into a sophisticated or large vehicle (though it can manage a hang-glider or a helicoptery thing to pull Bob out of a fall), and it does not have unlimited energy. Glitch is sentient, though it seems only a Guardian can understand its beeping language. Glitch was damaged at the end of season 2, making it unable to morph and project energy but still capable of [[EverythingSensor scanning anything and everything]]. Later it merged with Bob, and was later unmerged and upgraded into Glitch 2.0 (whose exact capabilities are unknown).

* EmpathicWeapon: Glitch is sentient and capable of activating on its own to protect its Guardian.
* EverythingSensor: Shows the rules of ''any'' game cube. It can also detect viruses.
* FusionDance: With [[spoiler: Bob in season 3]].
* LoyalPhlebotinum: It is extremely loyal to Bob. It accepts to merge with him so they can return to Mainframe and stop Daemon. Glitch' decision to abandon Bob to join the other Bob in ''My Two Bobs'' seems to seal the deal on which Bob is the original. [[spoiler:Glitch is actually knowingly joining the fake Bob because in doing so it can retrieve the real Bob's missing code, and repair him, while revealing the fake as Megabyte]].
* NoSell: Like all keytools, Glitch is immune to viral infections, including Daemon's. When merged with Bob it confers its immunity to Bob. The rest of the Keytools abandonned their guardians when they became infected.
* SwissArmyWeapon: Glitch can morph into a ridiculous range of tools and weapons. And a lamppost one time.
* SuperWristGadget: Glitch's default form is a small device that is mounted on Bob's wrist.
* TheUnintelligible: Though it rarely speaks, Glitch's speech consists of beeps and whirring sounds.
* TakeUpMySword: Glitch was Dixon Green's (Bob's partner and mentor) keytool. It passed to Bob when an upgrading Kilabyte killed her.
* WreckedWeapon: Glitch is crushed by Megabyte at the end of season 2, rendering most of its functions useless. [[spoiler:Until repaired by the other Keytools after unmerging with Bob]].

[[folder:Dot Matrix]]

''Format:'' Command.Com

-->Voiced by: Creator/KathleenBarr

-->''"I look to the Net. I search though systems, peoples and cities for these sprites: my family. My format: Command.Com of what was once Mainframe."''

[[caption-width-right:350: "Rule number one: know more about your enemy than they know about themselves!"]]The leader of Mainframe (she took over the position from, according to WordOfGod, an unseen sprite whom Phong represented sometime between the end of season 2 and the end of season 3). Dot is for most of the series TheChick and Bob's main love interest. She owns Dot's Diner, a small diner which often served as headquarters to the heroes in the early seasons. Enzo is her little brother. Dot is known to be ''very'' organized and almost incapable of doing anything unless she has a plan. However, once she does have a plan, things usually go right.

!!Tropes associated with Dot:

* BadassBookworm: More often than not, the brains of the operations.
* BigNo: In "Game Over" [[spoiler: when Enzo, Frisket and [=AndrAIa=] lose a game.]]
* TheChessmaster: A counterpoint to Bob's more impulsive approach.
* TheChick: Definitely the heart and soul of the good guys.
* CoolBigSis: For Enzo, until the time skip. Then she doesn't look so big to him anymore.
* HeroicBSOD: At the end of Season 2 [[spoiler:when Bob gets shot into the web]], she begins to go through this. [[spoiler:And kept doing down after she believed Enzo was nullified. Even though she's happy to see Bob, Enzo (Matrix), [=AndrAIa=], and Frisket back, she doesn't know if she has any fight in her left.]]
* TheLancer: In the early seasons mostly.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: In the ''My Two Bobs'' movie, when she realizes she chose ''Megabyte'' (who was impersonating him) over the real Bob for rather shallow reasons (basically he looked like Bob used to) and very nearly married him. Doubles as TookALevelInJerkass for some fans.
* PromotedToParent: As confirmed by the Season 4 flashbacks, Dot had to go from CoolBigSis to ParentalSubstitute for Enzo following [[spoiler:Welman's ultimately disastrous experiment in the twin city]].
* PurelyAestheticGlasses: Later on Dot adopted a pair of glasses despite no evidence that she actually ''needs'' them. They would pop up occasionally when she was reading early in the series but a lack of consistency kind of killed the idea.
* SmallGirlBigGun: In "Web World Wars".
* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: Her main role, though in "The Tiff" she and Bob switch so she becomes the ActionGirl and he becomes TheSmartGuy.
* TheStrategist: Dot is always the one who comes up with a plan.
* TeamMom: For Enzo on a personal level, and as a guiding force for the rest of the cast.
* WhatASenselessWasteOfHumanLife: She doesn't take any pleasure in victory over the virals in "Game Over".

[[folder:Enzo Matrix]]

''Format:'' Renegade & Guardian

-->Voiced by: Jesse Moss (season one), Matthew Sinclair (seasons one and two), Christopher Gray (young Enzo and young duplicate in season three), Giacomo Baessato (young duplicate in season four), Danny [=McKinnon=] (flashback in season four), Creator/PaulDobson (adult)

-->''"I live in the games. I search through systems, people, and cities, for this place: Mainframe; my home. My format? I have no format. I am a renegade, lost on the Net."''

[[caption-width-right:306:[[CatchPhrase "Alphanumeric!"]] ]]Originally Dot's BrattyHalfPint brother. He hero-worshipped Bob. Later in the 3rd season he underwent a PlotRelevantAgeUp into a [[SuperStrength super strong]] badass with a short fuse, a hatred of viruses, and a homicidal hatred of Megabyte in particular. The adult Enzo has a copy of Bob's Guardian code, meaning that he has technically all the immunities a Guardian has to the web and viral infections, although he never had any Guardian training. The lack of training however does not make him any less dangerous (Heck, it probably makes him ''more'' dangerous). At the end of Season 3, Enzo accidentally left his icon in Game Sprite mode, causing the system to "re"-create him from an earlier backup(right after Bob "updated" him to a Guardian cadet just before the Web invasion). The original Enzo usually goes by the name "Matrix", which he picked up while travelling the games.

!!Tropes associated with Enzo and/or Matrix:

* ABoyAndHisX: And his super-powered, tank-chewing dog.
* BadassBeard: After growing up, he gets a beard and becomes a very formidable fighter.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: As a kid, he loved games and thinks they are fun despite the many dangers they bring. When he became a full time guardian, he lost an eye inside a game. Then he got lost on the Net for a year, playing nothing but games to try to return home. By the time he finally did, he no longer consider games fun. His younger copy still love games however.
* BigLittleBrother: Averted, sort of. It's implied that [[spoiler: because of the time difference in games]], Matrix is actually ''older'' than Dot.
* BrattyHalfPint: Little Enzo was this, to the point that when we got the PlotRelevantAgeUp, it was a pretty big shock.
* TheBigGuy: Matrix is big and strong enough to punch a dent in Megabyte, or a wall.
[[caption-width-right:306:"Mercy? To a virus? ''Never.''"]]
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: After everything he went through in the games, Matrix is tough enough to fight [[LightningBruiser Megabyte]] evenly.
* CombatPragmatist: Mostly in his "interactions" with Megabyte [[spoiler: dents his chest, gouges his gut, breaks his claws, and punches him in the gut wound, ''repeatedly'']] and that is when he doesn't just shoot 'em.
** Although he did get an HonorBeforeReason moment when Megabyte goaded him into putting down his gun and just using fisticuffs. This quickly ended when he saw that Megabyte had no intention of fighting fair.
* CloningBlues: Averted with the back-up Enzo; he shows zero angst at being a copy. He even tries to reassure Bob when it might be that he's not the original.
* ElectronicEyes: Matrix's prosthetic eye lets him detect viruses, aim his gun, and use telescopic vision.
* EyepatchAfterTimeSkip: Cybernetic eye instead of an eyepatch, but the trope is still in full effect. Those games were not kind to him.
** Kind of a variation in that Enzo losing the eye happens on-screen, in his last scene ''before'' the time skip.
* EyeScream: What led to the trope above. Note that the scene where his eye was cut out was surprisingly relatively bloody...[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids and happened when he was still a little boy...]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In Dot's BadFuture sequence from "Identity Crisis, Part 2," viewers see an older Enzo that's all muscled up and more of a jerk. He even has a scar over his right eye and wears an earring.
* GoodIsNotNice: As Matrix, he's a bit of a jerk.
* GreenEyedMonster: He is ''extremely'' jealous of Ray's attraction to [=AndrAIa=] in season 3.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: He never took the presence of Megabyte too seriously, until Megabyte finally took over Mainframe, exiled Bob, into the Web, and pushed Enzo into despair until he was trapped in the games. When Enzo came back much older and much more serious, killing Megabyte was all he could think of. In the episode "Number 7," he ended up in a simulation of Mainframe, where he rebooted in Megabyte's body and easily played the part unconsciously.
* TheHero: In Season 3, including after [[spoiler: Bob comes back]]. Firmly TheLancer in season 4 though.
** SociopathicHero: Matrix has moments like this, but that's more due to trying to hide his softer side. Still, Matrix has no qualms about killing his enemies, much to the dismay of both his allies and younger self.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Early in Season 3, thanks to Cyrus' [[MaliciousSlander propaganda]] and the general unwillingness of the Mainframers to accept anyone other than Bob as a Guardian. He and [=AndrAIa=] manage to turn this around somewhat, though.
* HeroWorshipper: Both versions of Enzo look up to Bob. In season four, little Enzo latches on to his original self.
* IGotBigger: Holy ''crap'' did he ever. Enzo was half the size of Bob while Matrix is taller than all but Megabyte.
* IHatePastMe to FutureMeScaresMe: Over the course of season 4, the pair start as one before moving toward the other. Matrix finds his past self to be an embarrassment to back when he was an [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling irritating]] [[TheLoad and useless]] member of the cast. Which is made worse by Enzo having a huge case of HeroWorship toward himself, demanding to be called "Little Matrix." Over the course of the season though, Enzo realizes just how jaded and bitter his adult self as become and stops emulating him, while Matrix starts to become nostalgic for his time with Bob and has trouble fitting into a peaceful Mainframe.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: After the time skip he becomes one.
* JerkassFacade: In "Icons," he delivers TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to the binomes of a devastated system for being too scared to go into games and then storms off. When [=AndrAIa=] catches up with him, he asks how many signed up. Apparently, the tactic works great in getting Sprites to join the cause.
* {{Keet}}: Before growing up, he was pretty energetic.
* LastNameBasis: Matrix is so ashamed of the goofy kid he used to be that he insists that everyone refer to him by his last name rather than Enzo.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Matrix's bike.
* MoralityChain: [=AndrAIa=]
* MoreDakka: Gun's "Death Blossom" mode consists of the gun tagging everyone in the room, before spinning in mid-air on its own randomly.
** It's also a ShoutOut to Film/TheLastStarfighter.
* MusclesAreMeaningful: Matrix is big and buff, and it shows when he takes on [[LightningBruiser Megabyte]] and ''wins''.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When his Golden glows red, He's Gunning for you.
* RunningGag: His typical reaction upon seeing Bob was to shout, "''Bob!''" and tackle the Guardian to the ground. When they reunite in the Web, Matrix nearly did so again, but Bob stopped him and pointed out he's too big for that now.
* ShapedLikeItself: Matrix nicknamed his gun Gun. Yeah.
* StillWearingTheOldColors: That orange stripe on Matrix's shoulder? That's from the Guardian uniform he got as Enzo.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: aside from a few different accessories (and, of course, his size) Matrix looks almost exactly like his father, Wellman Matrix.
* SuperStrength: For starters, he punches Megabyte with enough force to send him flying across the room and bash a big dent in his chest.
* TakeUpMySword: Becomes Mainframe's Guardian after Bob is lost in the Web. [[spoiler: And he fails.]]
* TaughtByExperience: Enzo was able to survive as a [[ReplacementScrappy replacement Guardian]] thanks to his always [[TagAlongKid tagging along]] on Bob's adventures. Taken [[UpToEleven to the extreme]] while he was Game Hopping, where he spent several years worth of time fighting for his life, [[TookALevelInBadass coming out stronger for it.]]
* ThatManIsDead: Matrix repeatedly refuses to go by his first name because he's ashamed of the goofy kid he once was.
* TookALevelInBadass: Matrix went from being the series' BrattyHalfPint to being tough enough to take Megabyte on in a straight-up fight.
* TriggerHappy: Matrix is quick to draw his gun and this sometime leads to FamilyUnfriendlyDeath.
* UnskilledButStrong: [[AvertedTrope Averted!]] You'd think this would be the case with [[TheBigGuy Matrix]] considering his size and [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower proportionate strength]] but he's seen competently wielding many different weapons after the TimeSkip, when he isn't using Boxing, Kung-Fu, or even [[WrestlerInAllOfUs Wrestling]] to put the hurt on his enemies. Assuming he doesn't [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim just shoot them,]] considering how much of a CombatPragmatist he is.
* UnstoppableRage: Matrix isn't to be provoked. Megabyte does it and ends up being tackled through a wall and having a dent punched into his chest.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: When Matrix was a kid, he was upbeat and enthusiastic. After he compiled into an adult, he became a brooding violent renegade.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Shows traces of this after Bob is rescued. While he is thrilled to see Bob again, he is concerned that the Guardian will judge him harshly for what he had to do to survive. Unsurprisingly, Bob is actually proud of him.
* WhyDontYaJustShootHim: His favored response to most situations, though he doesn't get to actually do it most of the time. This is used to set up an ''Film/AustinPowers''-themed Game where Matrix, in the form of Dr. Evil, decides to forgo the deathtrap and just put a bullet in the User.
** "Gun, command line: full delete" has been the last words heard by many a virus.
* WorfHadTheFlu: He gets beaten up by a degraded sprite in ''Web Riders on the Storm'' when he would soon take Megabyte in hand-to-hand combat, but that's because he had donated probably most of his blood-analog to [=AndrAIa=].
* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: In "Number 7."


''Format:'' System Administrator

-->Voiced by: Creator/MichaelDonovan

[[quoteright:333:]]The oldest and wisest Chinese sprite in Mainframe, who lives in the Principal Office and oversees the system. A frequent target of Megabyte's schemes, nevertheless he does what he can in order to stop him with the help of the others.

!!Tropes associated with Phong:

* BigGood: In seasons 1 and 2; Dot later takes over this role.
* CatchPhrase: "Oh dear." and, to a lesser extent, "Yadda yadda."
* CrazyPrepared: He had a set of PowerRangers-esque robots built in case of a giant null monster attack, which [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever later happened]].
* {{Determinator}}: "I will fight you to the last, virus."
* GambitRoulette: Apparently, he let Enzo use the Read-Only Room knowing full well [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor what would probably happen to Mainframe]], in order to [[TheOnlyWayTheyWillLearn teach him a lesson]].
* HeroicSacrifice: In the flashbacks to "Megaframe," [[spoiler:as the virals break into the Principal Office, Phong stays behind to give Dot and the others time to evacuate]]. He doesn't die, of course, but he didn't know that and appeared quite ready for the worst possible result.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: In a way; as read-only memory he's totally immune to infection from all but the most powerful viruses.
* MissionControl: His main function for the good guys.
* NonActionGuy: Most of the time. When he ''does'' participate in something, it is usually because the situation is dire.
* TricksterMentor: In non-serious cases in earlier seasons, the person seeking advice would have to win a game of VideoGame/{{Pong}} against him first.


''Format:'' Game Sprite (A.I.)

-->Voiced by: Creator/AndreaLibman (young), Sharon Alexander (adult)

[[quoteright:323:]]Originally a game sprite, [=AndrAIa=] met young Enzo in an aquatic game and they became friends. As the game ended, she attached a copy of her data to Enzo's icon so that said copy would leave the game with Enzo and could stay with him. [[PlotRelevantAgeUp Aged up]] along with Enzo, becoming an ActionGirl and LoveInterest. Has a thing for motorcycles.

!!Tropes associated with [=AndrAIa=]:

* ActionGirl: She was already this in the game where she originated, but growing up with Matrix made her even more this trope.
* BareYourMidriff: Grown-up [=AndrAIa=].
* FishOutOfWater: Almost literally. Her original form is that of an aquatic mermaid-like creature. She also displays the trope properly in her child form, though after the timeskip she's grown out of it.
* HellBentForLeather: Again, adult [=AndrAIa=].
* LiteralMinded[=/=]SpockSpeak: "Now all we can do is sit and wait". "I will stand, if that's okay with you." Grew out of it over the timeskip.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: After the time skip, [[spoiler: her fins have grown strong enough to stop shrapnel and such, on top of being able to extend them]]
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Young [=AndrAIa=] is at least borderline, in a ToyShip kind of way; she's not as energetic or spontaneous as a typical ManicPixieDreamGirl but she's perky, has a number of odd quirks due to her origin as a Game Sprite, and is devoted to Enzo from the beginning. As an adult, though, she no longer fits the personality type, having become too calm to qualify and lost her FishOutOfWater idiosyncrasies.
* MeaningfulName: She's a sentient game sprite with the "AI" in her name in caps.
* MoralityChain: Downplayed. It's heavily implied that she's the only reason Matrix didn't become a complete and utter psychopath during the timeskip, and any time she's separated from him or incapacitated, he gets really, really ill-tempered, even compared to his normal self. At one point he is seen working this frustration off in a Game. This was a ''bad time'' to be a User.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: When they first met, Enzo claimed to be a Guardian to impress her and was very reluctant to tell her the truth. Despite the obvious, though, she always referred to him as "Guardian." In Season 4, however, [=AndrAIa=] reveals that she always knew the truth on account of her superior hearing. She just pretended to believe the lie because she was in love.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: She [[spoiler: picks up a trident either from a game or from somewhere in the net in between games]].
* SarcasmBlind: She didn't understood the concept of sarcasm when she was little. After she's grown into an adult, she's no longer blind to it.
* TheSmartGirl: As an Artificially Intelligent Game Sprite, she's designed to learn and adapt quickly.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Adult [=AndrAIa=]'s skintight outfit has gotten a fair bit of MaleGaze.
* SuperSenses: Her hearing may be on par with Frisket's.
* {{The Paralyzer}}: Her nails, which break off like a bee's barb to increase the effect. [[spoiler: As she grows older [[SpikeShooter she learns to shoot them]].]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Devoted to Enzo through thick and thin.

!Supporting Cast

''Format:'' Hacker

-->Voiced by: Louise Vallance

[[quoteright:300:]]Mouse was probably not intended to be a recurring character, being first mentioned as an old friend of Bob's before showing up as a mercenary working for Megabyte. She was quick to [[HeelFaceTurn join the heroes]], however, after Megabyte double-crossed her. She managed to simultaneously be an ActionGirl while mostly taking Dot's place as TheSmartGirl.

!!Tropes associated with Mouse:

* ActionGirl: Just like practically every other female in the series.
* AmazonianBeauty: Mouse has rather pronounced musculature on her arms, especially in later episodes.
* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: Either Dixie or Texan.
* CoolShip: Not like Capacitor's, hers is more an airborne warship.
* CuteLittleFangs: Odds are if you're seeing these, Mouse is pretty pissed off.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: The Code of Honor webcomic kills her and Ray off in a fairly mean-spirited manner, without much of a sendoff past "Where's Mouse and Ray? Crap."
** Although the two of them, as well as Turbo, turn out to be [[DisneyDeath not really dead]]. They're still never seen again in the comic, but it's implied that the three of them came back after Gnosis was dealt with.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The name of her ship? "Ship".
* ImpossiblyCompactFolding: She uses a full length katana. Which she keeps in an ankle holster. Somehow.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Her weapon of choice.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A rising four-note sequence.
* LovableRogue: Her initial characterization.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: While it was very satisfying seeing her send Megabyte [[spoiler: into the web]], instead of letting him infiltrate the Super Computer, this allows him to come back [[spoiler: disguised as Bob and with Trojan Horse abilities.]]
* PlayfulHacker: She hacks the Principal Office to take down its shields with a wink, mostly for fun.
* SexyWalk: Which [[MaleGaze Megabyte takes note of.]]
* ShapedLikeItself: Mouse's ship is called "Ship". Go figure.
* SitcomArchNemesis: Is this to Dot at first, before Mouse settles down in Mainframe and they become friends.
* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: Which makes her a good sidekick for Dot.
* StealthHiBye: A talent of hers. Bob used something she left behind to pull a similar trick in "The Crimson Binome".
* UnusualEyebrows: They appear to be attached to her hair.
* UnwittingPawn: Twice, which cemented her decision to join the good guys.


''Format'': Sprite/Dog
--> ''(Bob enters through a window)''
--> '''Dot:''' Ever hear of a door?
--> ''(Bob's mangled hover board is tossed through the window.)''
--> '''Bob:''' Ever hear of a Frisket?

Enzo's dog. He has been known to chew tanks and growl at Bob.

!!Tropes associated with Frisket:

* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude: Frisket can't speak at all (the closest he ever comes is a human-like snicker once in a while) and acts like a dog in most respects, but occasionally displays problem-solving abilities comparable to the humanoid sprites. For instance, there's the below example of him driving a car through a minefield in "Bad Bob".
* EvilDetectingDog: Goes with his incredible sense of smell.
* MadeOfIron: Frisket's tougher than any of the other heroes.
* TheNoseKnows: Can sniff out a virus under any circumstances.
** In ''Bad Bob'', he sniffs out land mines, and steers around them. '''''At the same time.'''''
* SuperStrength: He once got a hold of an Armored Binome Carrier and repeatedly smashed it around like a chew toy. On more than one occasion he anchors ABCs from taking off by sinking his teeth into the bumper, up until it tears right off. He also caught a cannonball with his teeth once.
* TeamPet: Possibly one of the most intimidating examples of this trope ever.
* UndyingLoyalty: Enzo once referred to him as feral, and he really does do as he pleases in general, but when it comes to Enzo? Not only would he face Megabyte, he'd face his superpowered upgrade, Gigabyte.

[[folder:Ray Tracer]]

[[quoteright:350:]]''Format:'' Web Surfer

-->Voiced by: Donal Gibson

A type of enhanced Search Engine, Ray meets Matrix and [=AndrAIa=] in a desert system where he is being detained by the authorities. He ends up joining their group because he can guide them through the Web, although he simultaneously causes Matrix much grief by flirting with [=AndrAIa=]. But in the end, Matrix accepts him. Ray later becomes the love interest of Mouse.

!!Tropes associated with Ray:

* AwesomeAussie: Where he got the accent isn't explained.
* CaptainErsatz: Ray (especially when flying through the web) is an obvious homage to the ComicBook/SilverSurfer.
* DemotedToExtra: Season 4. Seriously, the only times he appears on-screen are brief, silent cameos. This was largely due to his voice actor being unavailable. And that his powers were plot breaking in the Daemon struggle.
* TheDulcineaEffect: One episode after meeting [=AndrAIa=], he says he'd do anything to save her. Including some borderline suicidal actions. Like disagreeing with Matrix.
* EmpathicWeapon: Or rather, Empathic Surfboard- er, Surf''baud''.
* LoveTriangle: Sort of. [=AndrAIa=] either doesn't notice he likes her or doesn't really care. Either way, it's fairly obvious that she stays with Matrix.
** Also note that while Ray initially and genuinely flirts with her, that's before he sees she's in a committed relationship. He otherwise backs off save some compliments, but Matrix misinterprets it out of jealousy.
* NiceGuy: In sharp contrast to Matrix.
* ProductPlacement: He has Motorola logo on his waist.
* SkySurfing: Has flown his surfboard all over the Net and even through dangerous corners of the Web.
* {{Synchronization}}: Whenever his surfboard is hit, he will be incapacitated.

[[folder:Mike The TV]]

[[caption-width-right:350:The Creator/RobinWilliams of Mainframe.]]''Format:'' Appliance
->"For only ninety-nine, ninety-nine, ninety-nine!"

-->Voiced by: Michael Donovan

Mike is Bob's TV. Bob could never turn him off because the remote ran away. Mike talks a ''LOT''. All the time. Usually reciting StockPhrases, or advertisements he used to show. Around Mainframe, Mike is the closest thing to a news anchor, presenting news, narrating documentaries, and other such jobs in the visual medias (including speaking with the drawl often associated with televangelists, while infected by Daemon). Mike has a great talent at annoying other characters (although the Supervirus Daemon seemed to enjoy his company). He's a coward who will constantly remind people that he's a personal friend of Bob.

!!Tropes associated with Mike:

* AndNinetyNineCents: The Bucket'O'Nothing ad has him state that it's available for only ninety-nine, ninety-nine, ninety-nine.
* ButtMonkey: He often gets scared out of his wits to put over the threat(s) of the episode.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment[=/=]FateWorseThanDeath: From "Wizards, Warriors, And A Word From Our Sponsor":
-->'''Mike''': Don't touch that dial! You're tuned to the Commercial Channel! All commercials, all the time. (Darkly) An eternity of useless products to rot your skeevy little mind '''''forever'''''.
-->'''Mirror Bob''': Aaaahhhhh!!!
* CowardlyLion: Mike can actually be braver than most people give him credit for. Whether it's willingly helping Bob with his plan to stop Hexadecimal from wrecking Mainframe with the system's paint program, staying in Lost Angles to provide her with "therapy" for her after Bob removed her mask, or destroying a shadow monster, getting rid of Bob and Dot's {{Evil Counterpart}}s and eventually winning the game of A Dungeon Deep, Mike's come through for the heroes more times than you'd think.
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Wizards, Warriors, And A Word From Our Sponsor" sees Mike get trapped in a game with the main cast. To their surprise, he actually shows some ingenuity and becomes TheHero for once.
* DisabilityImmunity: In ''Enzo The Smart'', Enzo attributes how Mike seems completely unaffected by the system-wide stupidity caused by Enzo's messing with the clock speed program to him not being able to get any dumber.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In his first appearance, in "The Tiff," his voice sounds filtered like an old radio. It was dropped for all subsequent appearances.
* KentBrockmanNews: Way too eager for ridiculous dramatics to take seriously as a reporter. But they let him do it anyway.
* LargeHam: "Surprise your friends! Amaze your family! ANNOY PERFECT STRANGERS!!!!!!... it's obviously nothing." Bob can't turn the volume down either.
* '''MotorMouth''': Mike talks at a thousand miles a minute when he gets a good head of steam. So ''don't let him.''
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Often speaks in different impressions when doing {{Shout Out}}s. His regular voice also appears based on Phil Silvers.
* OutOfFocus: For the DarkerAndEdgier Season 3.
* PhraseCatcher: Everyone else tends to shout '''MIKE!''' at him when annoyed.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He knows Bob, you know!
* UnwittingPawn: As part of her larger plan to infect the Net, Daemon [[spoiler:arranged for a Web creature to enter Mainframe through Hexadecimal's looking glass. Mike accidentally shattering it with a loud opera show gave Daemon the opportunity she needed]].


''Format'': Dedicated Server

-->Voiced by: Michael Donovan

[[quoteright:350:]] Cécil is a stereotypical French waiter at Dot's Diner. He is a video screen with arms and very French-looking facial features, although he has no legs. Instead he movies around on a pole attached to slide tracks in the ceiling. That is, until the diner is destroyed and his pole gets attached to a zipboard, allowing him to move more freely. He tends to be rude but is nevertheless loyal to his boss Dot.

He resembles an old Macintosh computer, complete with a rainbow-coloured icon.

* {{Catchphrase}}:
** "Wait at ze bar, wait at ze bar."
** "I am not a nanny."
** "That's ''Ceh-cil''!" (After someone pronounces it Cee-cil).
* CampStraight: Very prim, proper and finicky.
* DeadpanSnarker: He is especially snide towards Bob.
* FrenchJerk: Towards ''everybody.''
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's a prick, but he's loyal to Dot.
* NationalStereotypes: Specifically, French ones.
* PluckyComicRelief: Usually serves as this, despite being a sprite of few smiles.
** He lights up the mood during the otherwise devastating system crash in End Prog. While others are comforting each other and just watching the chaos, a furious Cécil tries to deal with the drunken pirates.

-->Voiced by: Creator/GaryChalk

[[quoteright:350:]] Turbo is the Prime Guardian, the leader of the Guardian collective operating out of the Super Computer and head of the Guardian council. Turbo's keytool is Copland.

* BigGood: He's in charge of protecting the Super Computer and borderline systems.
* HeroicBuild: A bit more muscular than Bob.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler: He was willing, albeit reluctantly, to follow the Guardian Council's decision to destroy Mainframe when a web creature was confirmed to have made its way there. Though he added a few more minutes on the bomb to give Bob time to get rid of it.]]
* DefectorFromDecadence: He was the only guardian to resist Daemon's infection (for a time), looking to find Bob, the only uninfected guardian, to see if he could help.


[[quoteright:350:]]''Format:'' Virus

-->Voiced by: Creator/TonyJay

-->''"I come from the Net. Infecting systems, people, and cities, to this place, '''Mega'''frame: my domain. My format, [[TheVirus Virus]]: To corrupt and conquer!"''

The BigBad. A virus that styles himself after an EvilOverlord. He alternatively seeks to take over Mainframe or enter the Super Computer, where he could infect its vast resources to take over the entire Net. He is TheVirus, having the ability to infect Binomes and turn them into his Mooks. He is very powerful, so much that only three people would dare face him one-on-one in direct combat: Bob, Matrix and Hexadecimal. Oh, and speaking of Hexadecimal, [[spoiler: she is his sister]].

!!Tropes associated with Megabyte:
* AffablyEvil: He's quite evil, but he's quite pleasant and refined, and even [[HonorBeforeReason spared Bob and Dot's life]] because Bob saved him in a game. Not to mention the Rock Off mentioned under PetTheDog. This is most notable during season 1, though as the show progresses, he becomes more and more FauxAffablyEvil.
* BadassBaritone: Has a very deep voice, courtesy of Creator/TonyJay.
* BadBoss: Megabyte doesn't treats the virals under his command very well. The same goes for [[DumbMuscle Hack and Slash]]. Physical punishments is the order of the day for failures and everyone is considered expendable to him.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Taunts [[TheBigGuy Matrix]] into putting down [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim his gun]] and fighting him with his bare hands ''"like a real Sprite"''. [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Matrix]] [[OhCrap obliges.]]
* BigBad: Of Mainframe.
* BigBadWannabe: It's later shown that his dreams of infecting the Supercomputer were pure delusions of grandeur. The Guardians could have exterminated him any time they wanted, but [[ThouShaltNotKill Bob insisted on keeping him alive]] because he believed Megabyte could be reformed. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Oops]].
* TheChessmaster: His various schemes, especially his [[spoiler: spectacular betrayal of Bob & takeover of Mainframe (''both'' times)]]
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: And proud of it.
* ColdBloodedTorture: What he does to Hex in season 3 to force her into being a weapon for him. He has Herr Doktor install a pain collar around her neck, which Megabyte can activate via a control panel attached to his arm.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Everything that serves Megabyte is dark blue, with neon green markings. Even the sprites that bear his infection are dark blue, with neon green markings and green [=PIDs=].
* TheComicallySerious: A result of being SurroundedByIdiots.
* {{Determinator}}: He survives [[spoiler:a trip into the web, just like Bob]].
* TheDreaded: He's definitely the one spoken of in the most dire tones by the main heroes.
* EasilyDetachableRobotParts: While we never actually see Megabyte do it, his legs come off when he sits on his throne.
* {{Egopolis}}: His ultimate plan is to turn Mainframe into "Megaframe."
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Even with his goals, there are a couple things Megabyte finds barbaric: [[spoiler: 'Mon fighting and reformatting viruses into sprites]]. Also, at one point, he's about to dissect Frisket and explicitly orders his minions to take Enzo away so he doesn't have to see it; of course, he still twists the knife by refusing to let Enzo say good-bye.
* EvilBrit: He speaks with a British accent and is the BigBad.
* EvilIsPetty: In addition to his grand machinations, he disguises himself as Bob and almost manages to marry Dot just to screw with her and everybody else.
* EvilLaugh: Uncommon, but spectacular whenever he chooses to do one.
* EvilOverlord
* EvilPlan: It seems like he wants to take over Mainframe but it's actually a stepping stone to reach the Super Computer. Though he had smaller scales ones too.
* EvilSoundsDeep: ''Very'' deep, and he wields it well.
* EvilVersusOblivion:
** The primary conflict between himself and Hexadecimal. [[TakeOverTheWorld Megabyte wants to rule over Mainframe with an iron fist]], while [[OmnicidalManiac Hex is so intent on burning it to the ground that she doesn't even care if she dies too]]. Given Megabyte's [[KickTheDog actions]] and Hex's [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity obvious insanity]], it's a rare case where the "oblivion" side is the more sympathetic of the two.
** This is why he assists in fighting off Web Creatures in season 2; he can't conquer a deleted system (especially since he'll be deleted along with it). [[spoiler:It also presents him with a ''fantastic'' opportunity to take out Bob, which goes off without a hitch]].
* FauxAffablyEvil: From season 2 onwards. While still polite and WickedCultured, he's also more vicious, doing such things as gleefully torturing Hexadecimal and being willing to sacrifice his own minions to get what he wants. And when he gets ''really'' angry, he drops the act completely, running on all fours and roaring like a big cat.
* FusionDance: Forms Gigabyte with Hexadecimal [[spoiler:and the Web Creature]]. When that happens, you're dealing with ApocalypseHow.
* GeniusBruiser: He has ThePlan to manipulate and the muscles to intimidate.
* GracefulLoser: He's quite calm about his ruse being exposed in "My Two Bobs."
-->'''Megabyte''': ''(nonchalantly)'' I see my charade is at an end. A pity.
* GoKartingWithBowser: He shows up for Enzo's birthday party in one episode, and not to wreck the place, but to perform an awesome guitar solo and give Enzo the guitar as a present.
* ItAmusedMe: When Bob demands to know why he [[spoiler:went through with the "My Two Bobs" scheme]], he freely admits that he did so for fun, even quoting the trope name word-for-word.
* {{Jerkass}}: Why did he decide to [[spoiler: impersonate Bob and nearly marry Dot?]] Because he's a dick, that's why.
* LargeAndInCharge: He's huge compared to binomes and extremely large compared to most sprites, though Matrix is almost exactly the same size.
* LargeHam: Has his moments - with a voice like that, how can you not - though he can't quite compete with Hexidecimal.
* LetsFightLikeGentlemen: Subverted; in Season 3, Megabyte convinces Matrix to throw his gun away and "fight like a real sprite." This gets Megabyte PunchedAcrossTheRoom— which leaves a dent in Megabyte's armored chest (cue OhCrap expression from Megabyte)— and then tackled through a wall, at which point Megabyte pulls out his WolverineClaws. Then [=AndrAIa=] throws her trident at the two of them for Matrix to use.
* LightningBruiser: He can outrun his armored Binome Carriers despite attempts to go full speed, and when he catches up to it he can throw it around like a rag doll.
* ManipulativeBastard
* MadeOfIron: He can take a lot of hits before he starts to slow down. His skin is even literally metallic.
* MotiveDecay: As of season 4, he's gone from conquest of Mainframe to only caring about revenge. He even lampshades it:
-->'''Megabyte''': You're probably looking forward to one of my erudite speeches about me, [[{{Egopolis}} Megaframe]], the new viral dawn, et cetera et cetera. But I'm afraid I'm going to have to disappoint you. There is no grand scheme here. This is about revenge.
** [[spoiler:It later becomes a complete inversion, when he ultimately mentions his function right from the start was just to prey on sprites and destroy everything. It turns out he decayed his motive a long time ago and is finally getting down to business.]]
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Played with. Megabyte has hulk-like strength and a muscular frame; but it's meaningless compared to the destructive power that is Hexadecimal. Having an army of infected binomes, hundreds of tanks, and stockpiles of weapons doesn't just make it easier to take over Mainframe; it's his primary way of fighting the vast powers of Hex without risking his own life. Although in the UsefulNotes/PlayStation game Hex herself physically threw Megabyte clear across Mainframe, so super strength might just be a virus trait in general.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Just because he ''sounds'' refined doesn't mean he won't fight like an enraged bear when pressed.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: In early episodes, he was typically involved in humorous situations and rarely caused any permanent damage. However, this was largely due to ExecutiveMeddling; after the show left [=ABC=], Megabyte became far more evil and threatening.
* OhCrap: After Matrix punches him across the room, he looks down and sees a dent in his chest. It's one of the first times anyone is ''ever'' seen as anything close to a direct physical match for him, and his expression is one of utter shock at the idea that Matrix could actually injure him without his Gun.
* OrderVsChaos: The Order to Hex's Chaos. Megabyte is a dictator bent on domination.
* PetTheDog: As horrible a being he is, his rock-off at Enzo's birthday was nice and awesome. He even gave Enzo his guitar as a birthday gift. He even turned the amp UpToEleven!
* PostMortemComeback: When Bob enters the core to save data and force a system restart, he encountered a program left behind by Megabyte, who was launched into [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace the Web]]. It's a simulation of Megabyte, which can self-replicate, but all it does it taunt Bob.
* PsychoticSmirk: While most expressions of his beyond contempt range into this territory on an episodic basis, he gives his most terrifying one right before he [[spoiler: rockets Bob into the Web]].
* PunnyName: Has a huge jaw full of MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily.
* SiblingRivalry: With [[spoiler: Hexadecimal.]]
* SlasherSmile: [[spoiler:He gives one during his first fight with Bob in the fourth season.]]
* SuperStrength: On par with Hack, Slash, and Frisket; Megabyte has overpowered giant Exo-Skeletons and thrashed armored tanks barehanded.
* TakeOverTheCity: He'd ''prefer'' the Supercomputer, but until he gets access he'll take what he can get.
* TheVirus: He has the power to turn a machine a deep steel blue (like himself) after which he can manipulate it at will. He turns things around quite handily this way in "Infected."
* VillainsWantMercy: After Matrix defeats him in season 3 and has him pinned down, facing the business end of [=AndrAIa's=] trident, Megabyte, while he doesn't outright ''beg'', wheezes that Matrix can't kill him, as [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim it would go against everything he stands for]]. Matrix ultimately decides to spare Megabyte on the grounds that he's NotWorthKilling.
* VoluntaryShapeshifter: At the end of [[spoiler: season 4, having become a Trojan Horse virus.]]
* UnderestimatingBadassery: He taunts Matrix into disposing of his gun and fighting hand-to-hand... and realizes what a bad move that was when Matrix [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom punches him across the room]].
* WickedCultured
* WolverineClaws: He sports two mean sets of these, one from his fingers and one from his knuckles.
* XanatosSpeedChess: One such example: in "The Great Brain Robbery" from season 1, he's aghast to find that his plan to shrink down Mouse, Hack & Slash to get into Bob's brain (so he can have access to the Supercomputer) has gone awry when they wind up in Enzo's brain instead. But once he realizes Enzo was brought into the Principal Office, past all the security, he immediately initiates plan B: getting into ''Mainframe's central system core.''
-->'''Megabyte:''' It's no Supercomputer, but not a bad catch either.
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: From "Firewall": Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] exit a game and are confronted by Megabyte:
-->'''Megabyte: '''"I have a message for your sister.
-->'''Enzo: '''"''I'' am a Guardian! I'm ''not'' your messenger!"
-->'''Megabyte:''' *picks Enzo up by his throat* "You are what you have always been: a mere delivery boy. Do not provoke me further; '''''it is by my will alone that you survive this encounter."'''''

[[folder:Hack and Slash]]

[[quoteright:305:]]''Format:'' Robot

-->Voiced by: Phil Hayes (Hack, first two seasons), Creator/ScottMcNeil (Hack, last two seasons), Gary Chalk (Slash)

Megabyte's two bumbling henchmen who often screw up their given tasks. Both are rather fond of Bob despite being his enemy and have aided him on occasion. Not willing to cross the MoralEventHorizon by deleting a binome on Megabyte's orders (because Bob wasn't there to stop them, in their own words) or left for dead, they later [[HeelFaceTurn join the side of good]]. Hack, the red one, has a higher-pitched voice (the voice of [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Rattrap]], to be precise) and tends to be rather callous, while Slash, the blue one, has a deeper voice and is [[MoralityPet more sensitive and kind]] than Hack.

!!Tropes associated with Hack and Slash:

* BashBrothers: Their raison d'etre.
* TheDitz: Yeah, uh, if it hasn't already been established yet, they're ''idiots.''
* DumbMuscle: They're not exactly the sharpest tools in the shed, but they can punch someone the size of Gigabyte a significant distance.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: In "Game Over," Slash saves Cyrus from deletion and lets him escape.
-->'''Slash:''' I cannot do this. It is bad.\\
'''Hack:''' That's the whole idea!
* HeelFaceTurn: In season 3, they become good.
* JetPack: This makes them ''slightly'' more useful.
* MadeOfPlasticine: Quite often, usually for comedic effect.
** [[spoiler:Usually. Eventually Hexadecimal damages them to a point where they could no longer be fully repaired. Until the reboot.]]
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Especially apparent come season 3 when their conscience catches up with them. They were perfectly happy doing Megabyte's bidding because they knew they wouldn't do any ''real'' harm because [[GenreSavvy they knew Bob would always show up in the nick of time to twart them before they did anything bad]]. With Bob gone and Megabyte winning, they couldn't stomach what they were being made to do.
-->'''Hack:''' Now you've done it... Megabyte is gonna be mad!\\
'''Slash:''' Ah, what's new? I miss Bob.\\
'''Hack:''' What? You crazy?\\
'''Slash:''' Bob always stopped us before we could do anything really bad... Now, nobody does...
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Both have numerous hidden extra weapons and arms, but usually to little effect.
** This is parodied when Matrix and [=AndrAIa=] are [[spoiler:infected by Daemon]]. Hack holds [=AndrAIa=] back with both hands while Enzo talks to Matrix, and when [=AndrAIa=] is about to shout at Matrix, Hack ''pops a third arm out of nowhere to cover her mouth.''
* RedOniBlueOni: Hack is, quite literally, the red to Slash's blue.
* SuperStrength: Slash once punched ''Gigabyte'' clear across the energy sea [[NiceJobBreakingItHero back into Mainframe]].
* {{Punch Clock Villain}}s
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Until their HeelFaceTurn, then they're just, well, ThoseTwoGuys.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Hack and Slash bicker ''constantly''. The sad thing is, that's just ''one'' reason they aren't so great at being henchmen.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness[=/=]YouHaveFailedMe (for the last time)
-->'''Megabyte:''' Remind me next time we breach the firewall that Hack and Slash are to take point. [[{{Foreshadowing}} I'm weary of their incompetence!]]


[[quoteright:250:]]''Format:'' Virus

-->Voiced by: Shirley Millner

-->"''I infect the entire net. I have spread through systems, peoples, and cities, from this place: Mainframe. My format? Virus; the Queen of Chaos.''"

A benign virus and [[spoiler:Megabyte's sister]] who lives in the ruins of Mainframe's former twin city, now known as Lost Angles. Essentially chaos incarnate, using the title of ''The Queen Of Chaos'', with unpredictable mood swings and a flair for art and drama. Starts out rather villainous, but mellows out under Bob's influence, and in fact [[spoiler:joins the heroes as a SixthRanger during season 4]]. Hexadecimal is powerful. REALLY powerful. As in she can single handedly massacre Megabyte's entire forces on her own without breaking a sweat, and Megabyte knows better then to engage her in a straight-on fight.

!!Tropes associated with Hexadecimal:

* AllPowerfulBystander: She's able to do things that Megabyte strides for the entire series, such as invading the Principal Office or Finding the Supercomputer with just '''[[ChaoticEvil Her Whim]]'''. In her own words, while Megabyte got the smarts and crafty intellect from the fission into two viruses, she got the raw power and destructive lion's share of viral power.
* AxCrazy: The queen of chaos has several screws lose.
* TheBlank: She has a series of masks that she quickly swaps out behind her hand to change expressions. Her real "face" is not shown until halfway through the second season, when [[spoiler: Bob removes her mask and reveals that there's absolutely nothing beneath.]] This also happens in the UsefulNotes/PlayStation game.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: She's always had a thing for Bob, but her insanity would get the best of her. After he repaired her mask to emulate a real face, she felt whole for the first time, gaining a sense of perspective. Hex is still joyfully mad, [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes but Bob is now more important to her than ever.]]
* BerserkButton: Unless she is the one doing this, harm Bob, and she'll make you suffer. Just ask Daemon.
* CloudCuckoolander: After [[spoiler: becoming a Sprite]], she mellows out and begins to act less AxeCrazy and more like this.
* DarkActionGirl: Easily one of the most physically powerful characters, well above Megabyte's level. If her insanity didn't hold her back, she'd be a cataclysmic threat rather than a capricious nuisance. [[spoiler:When she joins with Megabyte and forms Gigabyte, we see what that power coupled with a sharp and sane mind can actually accomplish.]]
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Chaos Has Standards]]: [[spoiler:When your attitude is bad enough to disgust the Queen of Chaos, it's time to take a good look at your code.]]
* EvilLaugh: Often, although it tends to lean towards LaughingMad on more than one occasion (''especially'' during season 3, in which she becomes even more insane than before).
* ExpressiveMask: Averted, mostly. Her face is utterly static, and to change expression, she changes masks, though this happens instantly and generally happens any time her face is obscured from the viewer. Played straight once [[spoiler: she gets defragmented -- her mask becomes a fully expressive face.]]
* FadSuper: Her different looks over the course of the series have shades of this. Her original form comes off as a sort of evil East Village Bohemian who really played up the MadArtist angle, whereas her second "Red Queen" costume has more of a goth/emo/BDSM vibe, which was just starting to become more mainstream around the time it debuted. Her "White Queen" Sprite form is less influenced by real fashion as it is by fantasy art, but by the time that rolled around fantasy was starting to become more mainstream, too.
* FemmeFatalons: She has razor-sharp claws.
* FlyingBrick: She has those powers, as well as numerous others.
* FusionDance: Forms Gigabyte with Megabyte[[spoiler: while infected by the Web Creature]]. When that happens, you're dealing with ApocalypseHow.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Her eyes are ''always'' like this [[spoiler:except when she's a sprite.]] Usually green, but tend to [[RedEyesTakeWarning turn red when she's angry and/or psychotic]]. They have also been yellow, orange and blue on rare occasions.
* GoGoEnslavement: In season three.
* GoodCostumeSwitch: [[spoiler:After becoming a Sprite, her outfit changes from one with a red and black colour scheme to one of white and gold.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:By the end of season 3, much to Phong's discomfort.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: In order to take down Daemon in season 4 and rid the Mainframe of her suicide Virus, she sacrificed herself because that would mean Bob still gets to live.]]
** IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy
* InsaneEqualsViolent: She's completely psycho and has some very violent tendencies.
* LargeHam: Even static faces don't keep her from chewing scenery to bits.
* LoveRedeems: [[spoiler:For Bob, who despite all her madness, she never stopped having feelings for. It's what gives her incentive for her HeroicSacrifice.]]
* MaskPower: Inverted; according to "Painted Windows," her mask actually keeps her transfinite power in check so she doesn't overload, making it a PowerLimiter.
* MilkingTheGiantCow
* MoodSwinger:
-->'''Hex:''' Ohhh, Bob. I don't know if I should talk to you or '''''kill you!'''''"
* MoralityChain: Bob is this for her.
** Enzo also proves to be this [[spoiler:before her HeroicSacrifice]].
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Reverses the Medusa bug when she realizes that with everything in eternal, unchanging stone, Mainframe was as unchaotic as it could get.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Even when she's not actively AxCrazy, she still acts pretty creepy.
* NoSell: In her viral form, she's immune to Daemon's infection.
* NoFaceUnderTheMask: Without the mask, her head is blank.
* OmnicidalManiac: In "To Mend and Defend," she is perfectly willing to destroy the Principal Office - knowing full well it would destroy the entire system, including herself.
-->"Never mind. It will be glorious."
* OrderVsChaos: The Chaos to Megabyte's Order. A RealityWarper who does everything and anything on a whim.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: [[spoiler:After becoming a Sprite.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Her eyes usually turn red whenever she's angered or just in plain psychotic mode.
* RightHandCat: Scuzzy is essentially her pet.
* SanitySlippage: She was insane to begin with, but her horrific injury at the beginning of Season 3 and subsequent torture at the hands of Megabyte only serve to make her even ''more'' psychotic.
* SexyWalk: Even moreso than Mouse!
* SiblingRivalry: [[spoiler: With Megabyte. They don't get along and it is revealed that they are brother and sister.]]
* SixthRanger: [[spoiler:After Bob defragments her, she joins the heroes.]]
* SlasherSmile: Her [[ "Homicidal Glee"]] mask is this, the source of many childhood nightmares.
** Get made UpToEleven when infected by the Web Creature.
* StalkerWithACrush: Occasionally acts this way towards Bob.
* StoryBreakerPower: [[spoiler:After she makes a HeelFaceTurn, she's so powerful that she would render Matrix, Bob and the rest of the cast useless. Hex was then [[BroughtDownToNormal depowered]] in season 4 so Daemon could still be menacing. [[HeroicSacrifice She was ultimately killed]] so a returning Megabyte could become an even bigger threat.]]
* {{Telekinesis}}: Enough to toss Bob around like a rag doll if she so chooses.
* {{Tsundere}}: Especially toward Bob. With a dash of Yandere, just for fun.
* VictoryIsBoring: There was one time where her EvilPlan actually worked. She won. There was nothing Bob or anyone could do about it. "Peace and silence ''forever''" as Bob put it. She had a panic attack and reversed the damage. Though it was less "Victory Is Boring" and more "That particular victory would be boring", because with everything in eternal, unchanging stone, she was now in a stagnant, predictable, orderly world, which as a self-described Queen of Chaos, was anathema to her.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Though she retains her powers after having her head unscrambled, leading her to do things such as teleport an entire invading army out of the city because Bob asked her nicely.
** When she [[spoiler:gets depowered in Season 4]] though, she mellows out even more. And [[spoiler:when changed back, even more powerful than before, she goes right back to being crazy.]]
** Hex's madness may in fact be a ''subversion'', believe it or not. Her [[spoiler:fusing with Megabyte into Gigabyte]] implies that she could be a lot more destructive if she wanted to, but she finds fighting Megabyte and causing chaos in Mainframe to be a lot more fun. Gigabyte shows what happens when a NoNonsenseNemesis gets ahold of that kind of power.


''Format:'' Super Virus
->"I am become Gigabyte, destroyer of systems!"

-->Voiced by: Creator/BluMankuma

[[caption-width-right:350:oh we are so deleted WE ARE SO DELETED]]Gigabyte is the combined form of Megabyte and Hexadecimal forced together by the Web creature. When he first appeared, his only stated goal was to absorb energy and reach his full potential. It's revealed much later that [[spoiler:Gigabyte came ''first'', and an accident split him into Megabyte and Hexadecimal. Originally a virus named Kilabyte who had failed to take over the supercomputer, he was set to be deleted before receiving a "viral upgrade" into the monster he is now. Dr. Matrix's experiment to contact other systems pulled Gigabyte into Mainframe, which had the effects of destroying the twin system into Lost Angles, and splitting him into his two composite pieces]].

!!Tropes associated with Gigabyte

* BigNo: [[spoiler: The defeat he suffers in his eponymous episode leads him to make one of these.]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: The above quote is used in both of his appearances in the series.
* EnergyAbsorption: In his first appearance, he's unable to use Hexadecimal's RealityWarper powers, and goes about stealing the energy from anything he can get his claws on to unlock his full potential.
* FusionDance: Between Megabyte and Hexadecimal. [[spoiler:It's later revealed that he was the original]].
* GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler: As Megabyte and Hexadecimal split off from him, he's indirectly responsible for most events of the series, save Daemon, and is actually the reason Bob came to Mainframe in the first place.]]
* TheJuggernaut: Gigabyte is nigh-on invulnerable to everything, and this is in his weakened state.
* NoNonsenseNemesis: Gigabyte doesn't have Hex's madness nor Megabyte's ego or greed. He sets himself to a goal and sticks with it. When Bob tries to bait Gigabyte away by sending Glitch off, the larger source of energy, he simply remarked that taking the energy from two Sprites would do just as well.
* RedRightHand: His right hand is a grizzly three digit claw with long yellow nails.
* ShoutOut: His above quote is a modified line from ''Literature/BhagavadGita''.
-->"Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."
* TopHeavyGuy: Has a very bulky upper body.
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: His face is white, an allusion to Hexadecimal.


''Format:'' Viral System Interface

[[quoteright:282:]] Scuzzy is Hexadecimal's familiar. He is a small, cat-like creature who lives with his mistress in her lair, and serves as her pet and spy. He has a domed view screen on top of his head that can record anything he has witnessed, and is small enough to sneak into any area undetected (even Silicon Tor). He is very cunning, sly, and extremely loyal to Hex - although he isn't ignorant of the fact that she's crazy.

* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: In "Painted Windows", Hex uses Mainframe's paint program to greatly increase his size.
* CatsAreMean: It looks like a robotic cat.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Shows a lot of fangs whenever it opens its mouth.
* OutOfFocus[=/=]WhatHappenedToTheMouse: He seems to completely disappear after "Game Over", until he appears as the [[FollowTheBouncingBall bouncing ball]] during the musical number of the Season 3 finale. He also doesn't appear in Season 4 at all.
* PunnyName: Anyone ever heard of a SCSI (pronounced "scuzzy") interface?
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Scuzzy is small and kind of adorable.
* RightHandCat: Scuzzy is Hexadecimal's pet.
* SilentSnarker: He gets a lot of use out of those eyebrows.
* TheSpeechless: The only noises he makes are little purring-type sounds, and the occasional screech.
* UndyingLoyalty: For Hex, even though she's a particularly ''special'' kind of crazy.


[[quoteright:350:]]''Format:'' Super Virus

-->''"I am Daemon. I am the word. My format: Super Virus, my function; to bring unity to the net."''
-->''"I am not an entity, I am a time. My time is now."''

-->Voiced by: Colombe Demers

Daemon is by far the most powerful virus to ever hit the Net. She's a kind and gentle person when you talk to her, but she can enslave entire systems with a touch, will sacrifice any number of troops to achieve her goals, and is out to crash the entire Net.

!!Tropes associated with Daemon include:

* AffablyEvil: Her personality is no act; she's a truly nice and angelic person who just happens to also want to [[OmnicidalManiac cause the apocalypse.]]
* AGodAmI: In contrast to Megabyte, who ran his throng of Viral Binomes like a totalitarian dictatorship, Daemon's organization is more akin to a religious cult. Amusingly, she even gets a (literal) TV Evangelist and a chorus of FacelessGoons singing gospel music about her.
* ApocalypseHow: She would have crashed the entire Net. For the people in the series, that would likely be equivalent to Galactic or Universal on the trope's scale of scope.
* BaddieFlattery: She's very polite and considerate, and speaks admirably of the main character's love... though some things she cannot tolerate.
* BerserkButton: She seems to despise [[spoiler: Viruses turned Sprites, given her reaction to Hex]]. It should be noted, however, that her "berserk" never rises above mild annoyance (though she does trash Hex in the process). It's just weird because otherwise she's never seen to be anything but completely happy and polite, even when ordering her followers to commit suicide or getting shot at.
** She'll also apparently [[EasilyForgiven easily retract]] her feelings if the "offense" is changed. When [[spoiler: Hex becomes her viral, psychotic old self again and fights Daemon, Daemon says "Why do you wish to stand against me? You are a virus; we should be friends."]]
* BigBad: She took over the entire Net at one point.
* CompellingVoice: UpToEleven. Sprites and Binomes inside a system she infects will ''happily'' go to their deaths for her sake.
* DarkMessiah: Mike even acts as her televangelist.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[spoiler:The real reason Daemon has a French accent is because she's set up to be like Joan of Arc.]]
* EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench: She calls Mike Michel, and has a french accent.
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: She looks more like a Sprite than a supervirus. However, she is ''far'' stronger than her appearance suggests.
* FlyingBrick: She flies, her finger can block the attack from a Mech that smacked Megabyte across the room, and she can go toe to toe with a super-powered Hexadecimal.
* [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul Getting ":-D" Copied and Pasted Into Your Code]]: A secondary part of her infection.
* HeroicSacrifice: Evil variation - her servants will prefer non-violent methods, no matter how deadly the opposition. [[WeHaveReserves Of course, she can afford the losses]].
* InterimVillain: Fills in for Megabyte as the main antagonist until he returns from the Web.
* JeanneDArchetype: [[spoiler: Complete with eventual "[[MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning martyrdom]]".]]
* TheJuggernaut: Daemon is nearly unstoppable. She doesn't even react to threats with physical force because she's almost impossible to damage and just mind controls them instead. It takes an empowered Hexadecimal to even slow her down.
* KnightTemplar: She thinks the only surefire way to eliminate pain, war, and fighting is to eliminate all existence.
* KillerRabbit
* LightIsNotGood: She's pretty and angelic, with a sweet and polite nature. But she's also out to destroy the entire Net.
* NighInvulnerability: She's effectively indestructible. When Mouse tries to cut off her head with her sword, it not only fails to hurt Daemon, it doesn't even cut her ''hair,'' while Mouse's sword [[WreckedWeapon shatters on contact]].
* OmnicidalManiac: Her plan basically involves committing genocide.
* RealityWarper: When shot at with an exploding bullet, she reserves it's explosion and reassembles the bullet.
* TheVirus: She ''takes over the entire Net''.
* YouHaveFailedMe: When one of her infected aides, [[TheDragon Deacon]], fails in his attempt to invade Mainframe, Daemon whispers a series of "ones" and "ohs" to him in binary code. He then continues the sequence, before ending with a final "[[OhCrap ...oh]]". He then explodes.

!Other Characters
[[folder:The User]]

''Format:'' N/A


The User is the owner of the computer that is Mainframe. He is HeWhoMustNotBeSeen because he's a human living in the ''real'' world, but he still plays a major role in the series, acting as an antagonist during the games. He is viewed by most of the inhabitants of Mainframe as some sort of god. Capable of both great evils (such as the city-leveling games) and goods ([[spoiler:System Restore]] and new files). The User is generally seen in game cubes under the guise of a PlayerCharacter which the inhabitants of mainframe have to stop from winning.

Tropes associated with The User:

* AmbiguousGender: The use of male pronouns is purely conjectural, as we only ever see the User's input into the computer system. Most of the User's game avatars are male or have no discernible gender (pilotless vehicles, for instance), with the notable exception of the Barbie doll User from "Game Over".
* CollectiveIdentity: It isn't exactly clear whether every game is played by the same User, so there may be more than one.
* DeusExMachina: Or rather, god ''outside'' the machine. His gamecubes (not [[Creator/{{Nintendo}} the console]]) fill that role often; when they don't, they serve only to make a situation worse by dropping at the worst times possible. The User himself performs that role more directly at the end of season 3 [[spoiler:when he initiates a system restore to save Mainframe after a system crash]]. His role is even lampshaded by Dot:
--> ''Where's a gamecube when you NEED one.''
** At least Turbo sees the User as a godlike being, as exemplified when Daemon infects Mainframe:
--> ''She's here. User, have mercy on the Net.''
* TheGhost: The User never makes a physical appearance. All we ever see are the characters' interactions with his player characters.
* HumansAreCthulhu: The User is a dangerous implacable foe in the games, a creator of viruses that plague the Net, provider of upgrades, and repairer of the system.
* ObliviouslyEvil: The User obviously has no way to know that just playing a game on his computer can cause all sorts of suffering for the people living within.

[[folder:Captain Gavin Capacitor (and his crew)]]

''Format:'' Software Pirate

-->Voiced by: Long John Baldry (Capacitor), Kathleen Barr (Princess Bula), Michael Donovan (Mr. Christopher)

Captain Capacitor (Or, as he likes being called, "The Crimson Binome") is the captain of the ''Saucy Mare'' and its crew of pirates. He is a one binome and a fairly honorable man. Originally dealt in piracy, until Dot convinced him that legal business was more profitable (the damage done to his operation by kidnapping Bob, who subsequently escaped helped drive the point home). He later became an ally of Mainframe, especially Matrix, whom he helped search the web for Bob. His crew includes his nerdy accountant Mr. Christopher, and Princess Bula, an Amazonian giant one binome.

* ActionGirl: Princess Bula is very big and does a lot of fighting.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: He could make more money as a legitimate merchant than as a pirate. When Dot points this out to him and backs it up with her business savvy, he immediately gives up piracy for honest work.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: "Is she really a princess?" "No! You want to tell her different?"
* {{Expy}}: Capacitor and Mr. Christopher are very reminiscent of [[Disney/PeterPan Captain Hook and Mr. Smee]].
* [[HugeGuyTinyGirl Huge Girl Tiny Guy]]: The Princess falls in love with Specky, the nerdy one binome working in the Principal Office.
* LargeHam: Capacitor. Again, he's [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Robotnik]] after all.
* NiceHat: Capacitor's pirate hat.
* PirateBooty: Profit is their main concern.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: At first averted, but once the Pirates leave piracy for legitimate business, they fall into this trope, never being seen to do anything but act pirate-like.
* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: Princess Bula, at first, and even Specky is initially uncomfortable.
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: When Mr. Christopher mentions that they'll return from their voyage through the Web without a cent to their names...
-->'''Captain Capacitor:''' Aye, lad, perhaps so, but there be ''other'' reasons to set sail ''besides'' profit!
-->'''Crew:''' *GASP!*
-->'''Captain Capacitor:''' repaying a debt to a friend, for one! Sometimes, doin' the right thing, lads, is worth more than all the booty a swab can carry! *turns to Mr. Christopher with a DeathGlare* Be I makin' meself clear, lad?
* TheStoic: The 1 Binome who's constantly peeling potatoes, no matter the level of danger surrounding.
* {{Tuckerization}}: Capacitor shares his first name with one of the show's co-creators.
* VerbalTic: ''Yarrrrr!!''
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: At the end of Season 3, the crew is in Mainframe and seems poised to further help the Mainframers against Daemon. However, in Season 4, they are never seen doing so and - outside of a cameo - most (including Capacitor himself) never appear. A quick shot of a vid window in "Daemon Rising" suggests Capacitor at least has been captured, but it is never made clear through dialogue and the whole crew goes unmentioned.
** Several of them are seen at Dot's wedding though.
* WhatTheHellHero: Capacitor to Matrix, when Matrix refuses out of hand to release Ray Tracer from prison while breaking out the crew of the ''Saucy Mare''.
