Characters: SilverHawks

A list of characters who appear in SilverHawks.

The SilverHawks

A team of heroic Space Police who defend the Limbo Galaxy from Mon*Star and his mob.
Tropes associated with all the SilverHawks:

The Original Team

These are the Silverhawks who were introduced at the beginning of the series.

Commander Burt Stargazer

Voiced by: Bob McFadden

The man who issues the orders to the Silverhawks. He's also the cop who originally captured Mon*Star.
Tropes associated with Stargazer:

Lieutenant Johnathan Quick, "Quicksilver".

Voiced by: Larry Kenney

The Silverhawks' pilot, and the only one among them who doesn't have wing attachments.

Sergeants Emily "Steelheart" Hart and Will "Steelwill" Hart

Left to right: Steelwill and Steelheart
Voiced by: Maggie Wheeler (Steelheart) and Bob McFadden (Steelwill)

A brother and sister team of heroes who join the Silverhawks.
Tropes associated with Steelheart and Steelwill:
  • Amazonian Beauty: Of the two Smurfettes on the cast (the other being Melodia), Steelheart is easily the stronger-looking (of athletic design). We get a nice Male Gaze pan of her on the opening sequence to showcase this.
  • Action Girl: Steelheart.
  • The Big Guy: Steelwill.
  • Brother-Sister Team: They're both Gadgeteer Geniuses who work together all the time...and then punch down walls together all the time. They even suffered heart failures at the same time, requiring them to get fitted with bionic replacements prior to the Silverhawk assignment.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Both of them, as stated above.
  • Genius Bruiser: Super-strong football fans, and the team's tech specialists.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Steelheart is the only female Silverhawk.
  • Super Strength: The strongest members of the Silverhawks team, in physical terms.
  • Twin Telepathy: This is why their hearts failed simultaneously during the mechanization sequence in the pilot. Used at least once afterwards, but not much more than that.

The Copper Kidd

Voiced by: Pete Cannarozzi

The Silverhawks' alien member. He communicates by taking high-pitched noises instead of speaking.
Tropes associated with The Copper Kidd:

The Reinforcements

These are Sixth Ranger Silverhawks who were introduced midway through the series, after the original team had been established. None of them appear in the Title Sequence.


Voiced by: Adolph Caesar, Doug Preis

A professional magician and illusionist with a Power Crystal embedded in his forehead. He uses his abilities to confuse and misdirect Mon*Star's gang.
Tropes associated with Hotwing:


Voiced by: Peter Newman (possibly)

A Silverhawk from (even farther in) The Future who occasionally travels back in time to save the main cast.
Tropes associated with Flashback:


Voiced by: Bob McFadden

Condor is a retired Silverhawk who's working as a private eye when his old friend Stargazer calls him back to active duty. His tech is outmoded, but his experience makes up for it.
Tropes associated with Condor:


Voiced by: Larry Kenney (probably)

Moonstryker is a cocky young Silverhawk whose technology is a little more advanced than his teammates'. He uses a spinning turbine attached to his waist to fly.
Tropes associated with Moonstryker:

Mon*Star's Mob


Voiced by: Earl Hammond

The leader of the mob, and arch-enemy of the Silverhawks and of Commander Stargazer in particular.
Tropes associated with Mon*Star:
  • Big Bad
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: A villainous variant. "Moon Star of Limbo! Give me the might - the muscle - the menace - of MON*STAR!"
  • The Dreaded
  • Eyepatch of Power: Wears one over his left eye in his normal form.
    • Eye Beam: In his transformed state, his left eye becomes capable of firing bolts of star-shaped energy that can either paralyze a target or transform his squid-mount, Skyrunner, into its armored form.
  • It's Personal: Between Mon*Star and Stargazer, who originally captured him.
  • Lunacy: The light of the Moon Star of Limbo is what gives him his strength and ability to transform.
  • Powered Armor: Wears this in his transformed state. It gives him flight abilities and a degree of boosted endurance, as well as the Eye Beam ability above.
  • Red Baron: Mon*Star, the Planet-Master.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting


Voiced by: Bob McFadden

Mon*Star's personal assistant, who activates the machinery for his boss's transformations with the Moonstar of Limbo.

Voiced by: Bob McFadden

The Mob's weapons specialist.
Tropes associated with Hardware:


Voiced by: Maggie Wheeler

The only female member of the Mob, she uses her trademark keytar weapon to create devastating shockwaves.
Tropes associated with Melodia:
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Distaff Counterpart: To Bluegrass.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Bluegrass, again. Like him, Melodia attacks using a musical instrument that shoots lasers shaped like music staves (plural of "staff"). In her case, she uses a keytar note , whereas Bluegrass uses a guitar.
  • Instrument of Murder: Melodia's keytar.
  • Sinister Shades: The frame is shaped like a musical note, even!
  • The Smurfette Principle
  • Wicked Witch: Well, she's not quite one per se. However, the way she talks is a cross between this and the Valley Girl accent. She also laughs like a Wicked Witch (and also acts like one...).
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair: Two different shades of green, at that.
