     The Storm Hawks 


Voiced by Samuel Vincent

The Sky Knight and leader of the Storm Hawks. He is a direct descendant from the presumably deceased leader of the original Storm Hawks, Lightning Strike. (Fanon says they're father and son, but it's never explicitly stated in show).


Voiced by Matt Hill

The team's self-absorbed sharp shooter.


Voiced by Chiara Zanni

The team's only girl and a perfectionist crystal specialist.


Voiced by Colin Murdock

The muscle of the team and a major softie.


Voiced by Scott McNeil

The oldest member of the team and the neurotic pilot of the Condor.


The "Mission Specialist" of the Storm Hawks who usually serves as a wing-creature for Aerrow.


Master Cyclonis

Voiced by Lenore Zann

Ruler of Cyclonia and the major antagonist of the series.

The Dark Ace

Voiced by Samuel Vincent

Master Cyclonis's right-hand man and a traitor to the original Storm Hawks.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Aerrow.
  • The Dragon: To Master Cyclonis.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Evil Counterpart: To Aerrow.
  • Laser Blade: And one with two blades running parallel with one another, no less! It originally belonged to Lightning Strike, before the Dark Ace (then his co-pilot) used it to kill him and then kept it for himself, changing the crystal in the hilt for a red one.
    • Although it's not a blade made of lasers (as a Lightsaber would be), but rather a metal sword with some sort of plasma sheath around it when it's on. This "sheath" is affected by what type of crystal is used in the weapon- a Phoenix Gem made it burst into flames, while super-power gems made it glow purple.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Comes with being Tall, Dark and Handsome, and having a sophisticated accent to boot.
  • Everyone Calls Him the Dark Ace: There's never any mention of what they called him before he became Cyclonia's Red Baron.
  • Fallen Hero: Used to be a member of the original Storm Hawks before his Face-Heel Turn.
  • Red Baron: His name.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Interestingly, they're shown as black in flashbacks.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Averted. For betraying the original Storm Hawks, the previous Master Cyclonis rewarded the Dark Ace with all the glory and power she had promised him.
  • The Rival: Once again, to Aerrow.
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome
  • Tall, Dark and Snarky: Has been known to point out glaring flaws in the plans of his peers, such as with the huge blind spot on Snipe's commissioned warship.
  • Villainous RROD: Overloaded with crystal energy in the final battle.
  • Villain Decay: A rather mild example. He starts out being an invincible Red Baron that no other Sky Knight can match, and during the first season, he's consistently portrayed as this. By the time of "Energy Crisis," however, he has to resort to a Giant Mecha to give Aerrow and Co. an uphill battle. Of course, he's still easily the finest warrior in the Cyclonian army.
  • Worthy Opponent: Seems to view Aerrow as this by the series finale, as he asks Master Cyclonis for the chance to finish him in battle, rather than let him get sucked into a Far-Side crystal prison. Not that he lets it stop him from accepting a power boost from Cyclonis via the Binding in order to win.


Voiced by Cathy Weseluck

A high-ranking Talon commander, and Snipe's sister. Her plans for conquest tend to involve strategy, finesse, and the use of unique super weapons. She has little patience for failure or idiocy.


Voiced by Colin Murdock

Another high-ranking Talon commander. A brute and a slob, and none too bright, though he gets the job done through ruthlessness.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: How he lost the most powerful Cyclonian battleship in "A Little Trouble".
    • Notably it isn't even because he got in a trap, it's because.......well, just look at Too Dumb to Live below.
  • Big Little Brother: To Ravess.
  • The Brute: In contrast to Ravess, The Smart Chick and Cold Sniper.
  • The Caligula: When he took control of Cyclonia from his sister while Cyclonis was away, Snipe was more concerned with hosting jousting tournaments and building shrines to his own ego than any kind of administrative duty.
  • Carry a Big Stick: More specifically, a huge mace studded with crystals.
  • Dumb Muscle: Not exactly the brightest tool in the Cyclonian arsenal; his standard battle strategy is essentially "keep hitting until something breaks."
  • Epic Flail: The aforementioned crystal mace.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Junko, being a mighty strong-man.
  • Large Ham: He tends to bellow when talking, especially when ranting about the glory of Cyclonia—or, more often, his own.
  • Man Child: When revelling in his custom-designed assault carrier, Snipe pretends to be blowing things up in a manner remniscient of a kid's pretend game.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With his older sister Ravess, a cultured tactician.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He's nowhere near as important to the Cyclonian cause as he thinks he is.
  • Too Dumb to Live: In "A Little Trouble," When one of his mooks warns him that feeding any more power to his warship's cannons will cause the engines to give out, Snipe goes ahead and does it anyway. Seeing as the engines are what keeps the warship in the air, you have to wonder what the hell was going through Snipe's head.

Mr. Moss

The warden of the Cyclonian prison on Terra Zartacla.


Mr. Moss's right-hand man, and in charge of animal handling.
  • Adorkable: Due to his enthusiasm and the fact that he doesn't seem actively malevolent.
  • The Beastmaster: In "The Last Stand", he commands an army of fire scorpions — at least until they run out of scorpion feed.
  • The Chew Toy: Tends to get the dirtiest and most dangerous jobs.
  • Youthful Freckles

The Nightcrawlers

  • Always Chaotic Evil
  • Ambiguously Human: They speak with strange voices, are weak to light, and when otherside technology comes in abundance, an army of them may have come with them.
  • Animal Motifs: Bats: nocturnal, and their cycles unfold into bat like gliders, their flight pack in the finale even flap.
  • Cool Bike: Notable for switching into powered hang gliders instead of the normal design.
  • Dark Is Evil: Full stop.
  • Elite Mooks: Piper identifies them as Master Cyclonis' personal guard in their first appearance.
  • Mook Lieutenant: The Red Eyed leader of the nightcrawlers.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: the leader.
  • Voice of the Legion: Whenever they talk, it tends to be like this.
  • Weakened by the Light: Their armor is weak to light, and they don't seem to like it. Eventually they upgrade and it becomes a non-issue.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Initially, it's the sunlight. After their upgrade, their crystal snakes are allergic to Radarr's fur.

Cyclonian #2

A Talon officer, recognizable by the x-shaped scar on his cheek, who just wants to make his mark in Cyclonian history.

  • Ascended Extra: He first appeared in "Radarr Love", and later on was prominent in "Power Grab" before making one last appearance in the final episodes.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: In "Power Grab", he helps Snipe, then Repton, take control of Cyclonia in Master Cyclonis' absence in hopes of getting a promotion.
  • Genre Savvy: When he captures the Storm Hawks by sheer luck in "Radarr Love", he decides NOT to talk about his evil plot while the heroes are listening.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He really, really, wants to be a feared Talon commander...but just can't pull it off.
  • No Name Given: He's not even Only Known By His Nickname; "Cyclonian #2" comes from the credits of his debut episode, as a Brick Joke about his woes that, if a movie is made about the Cyclonian Empire's conquest, his role will be so small the credits will call him Cyclonian #2.
    • Embarrassing Nickname: At the end of "Radarr Love", he gains the monicker "Commander Chicken-Feathers" because the hens that took him down on Radarr's behalf. This is forgotten by his next appearance; though Ravess recalls the feathers, she's clearly forgotten him.

  • The Lad-ette: A softer version.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Blizzarians appear to be a blend between rabbits and some kind of canine.
