     The Storm Hawks 

Aerrow

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aerrow1_2056.jpg
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).

Finn

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Finn_2_6069.jpg
Voiced by Matt Hill

The team's self-absorbed sharp shooter.

Piper

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Piper_5211.jpg
Voiced by Chiara Zanni

The team's only girl and a perfectionist crystal specialist.
  • Ambiguously Gay: A subtle example, mostly around Starling or Master Cyclonis. It's also possible that she's just very confident in her sexuality and does not hold any stigmas about behavior that people would consider to be "lesbian behavior".
  • Arch-Enemy: Unlike most examples, hers isn't the resident Dark Chick, but rather the Big Bad herself, Master Cyclonis.
  • Badass Bookworm: She's the team's crystal expert and can also fight hand-to-hand, either unarmed or with staff. From her performance in the martial arts challenge in "The Code", she seems to have had formal training, which fits with her by-the-book approach to life.
  • Bi the Way: Another subtle example—apart from the aforementioned interaction with Starling and Master Cyclonis, she has a certain amount of Ship Tease with Aerrow.
  • Boom Stick: Her crystal staff.
  • Fangirl: Towards Domiwick before his true nature became apparent.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Variant; her gloves have no index finger, little fingers or thumb.
  • Number Two: Aerrow puts her in charge of the team when he's away.
  • Positive Discrimination: The Ambiguously Brown Token Girl is probably the least likely to screw up.
  • Prince and Pauper: In "Royal Switch".
  • Retractable Weapon: Her staff can collapse to become shorter.
  • Ship Tease: Has a few Foe Yay moments regarding Master Cyclonis. In addition, she has some rather tender moments with Aerrow as well, as shown at the ending of "Stratosphere," the moment Aerrow manages to land after his Skimmer nearly crashes in "Second Chances," and the final episodes.
  • The Smart Girl: Has a near-encyclopedic knowledge of crystals and how to use them properly.
    Aerrow [assigning team positions]: Piper - crystal mage! ...Plus, all the smart stuff.

Junko

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/junko_3690.jpg
Voiced by Colin Murdock

The muscle of the team and a major softie.
  • Adorkable: He's the most awkward member of the team, but still a nice guy.
  • Alien Lunch: The stuff he eats is... pretty strange. Some of it's even alive.
  • Anti-Air: Has a cannon that he can use to personally shoot down airborne targets.
  • Apologetic Attacker
  • Berserk Button: Calling Junko a "gleep" might not be the best idea...
  • Big Eater: Even more so than the Colonel.
  • The Big Guy
  • Catch Phrase: "On it!" and "Sorry!"
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: Tends to unintentionally smother his teammates with his hugs.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Some of the things he eats are viewed by Finn with disbelief.
  • Friend to All Living Things: At least until they try to kill him or endanger the team. Then he has no problem with fighting them.
  • Genius Bruiser: While not The Smart Guy by any stretch, he is the team's mechanic and weapon expert.
  • Gentle Giant
  • Gray Eyes
  • Heel–Face Turn: "Origins" reveals that he was once a member of a Cyclonian Youth Brigade before he realized that they were most definitely not the good guys.
  • Immune to Bullets: Blasts from power crystals don't always have the intended effect on him.
    Junko: Whoa, tingly!
  • Lethal Chef: Seems to come with his being an Extreme Omnivore — he has pretty low standards when it comes to food.
  • Meaningful Name: Likes to collect random junk and even has a fortified closet full of scrap metal in his room.
  • Mr. Fixit: His main job is to maintain the ship.
  • Nerd Glasses: He wore big round glasses during his childhood on his home terra, where he was seen as a nerd. He sometimes uses them for reading.
  • Plot Allergy: He is allergic to both Murk Raiders and Sky Sharks. It's good for an early warning and bad for trying to be sneaky, as they make him release Sneezes of Doom.
  • Power Fist: His Knuckle Busters amplify his strength to ridiculous levels.
  • Rhino Rampage: Like all Wallops, he looks like a bulky humanoid with rhinoceros features.
  • Super Strength: Even without his Knuckle Busters.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: He sometimes uses bombs called turkey burps.
  • Youthful Freckles: He has some faint blotches on his cheeks that look sort of like freckles, though they're probably just lighter versions of the spots that cover his hands and some other areas.

Stork

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stormhawks_stork_9257.jpg
Voiced by Scott McNeil

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

Radarr

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Radarr_2_9688.jpg

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

     Cyclonians 

Master Cyclonis

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/master_cyclonis_6859.jpg
Voiced by Lenore Zann

Ruler of Cyclonia and the major antagonist of the series.

The Dark Ace

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dark_ace_8894.jpg
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.

Ravess

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ravess2_2818.jpg
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.

Snipe

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/snipeA2_1877.jpg
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.

Hamish

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.
  • 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 Raptors 

Repton

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Repton_2692.jpg
Voiced by Scott McNeil

The leader of the Raptors.

Hoerk

Voiced by Colin Murdock

  • The Brute: The largest and after Repton, the most aggressive. He's also not particularly smart.
  • Dumb Muscle
  • Flat Character: He's the biggest of the Raptor siblings. He's one of the strongest. He's not that bright. That's about it.

Leugey

Voiced by Scott McNeil

  • Anti-Villain: In "Life with Leugey," he doesn't seem all that bad, albeit annoying.
  • Big Eater
  • The Ditz: He's not exactly the nastiest of the Raptors, or the most focused or sensible.
  • Dumb Muscle
  • Fat Idiot
  • The Scapegoat: If something goes wrong, he tends to get the blame for it.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Possibly. When he gets stuck to Stork, he's torn between staying with the Storm Hawks and going back to the Raptors despite how the latter mistreat him.
