[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: The Storm Hawks]]
!! Aerrow
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aerrow1_2056.jpg]]
->Voiced by Creator/SamuelVincent

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).
----
* TheAce: Best pilot in the Storm Hawks, and arguably one of the best in all of Atmos.
* ArchEnemy: A rare variation in that the BigBad, Master Cyclonis, is not his ArchEnemy; rather, it's her [[TheDragon Dragon]], the Dark Ace.
* BifurcatedWeapon: His daggers can join at the hilt.
* CloseRangeCombatant: Most characters conduct aerial battle using blasters mounted on their vehicles. Aerrow instead opts for ''leaping onto the opponent's vehicle''.
* {{Determinator}}: Has been fighting Cyclonians in one way or another for most of his life.
* DualWielding: Of {{Laser Blade}}s.
* HealThyself: In "Five Days". Nearly drives his team bonkers because he has to remain utterly motionless for five days.
* TheHero: Takes charge in any situation and never fails to stand up to evil.
* HumbleHero: Despite often displaying a cocky attitude in battle, he's remarkably down-to-earth. In "Second Chances", he was reluctant to take part in the team's newfound celebrity lifestyle, saying it wasn't what being a Sky Knight was about.
* IKnowMortalKombat: He uses a move he says he saw in a cartoon once to take out several airborne mooks in the first episode. Played with in that it [[RuleOfFun actually works]].
* ImprobableAge: He is ''fourteen''. Piper is at least ''implied'' to be a prodigy.
* TheKirk: He has more sense than Finn, but is more prone to goofing off than Piper.
* TheLeader: The Sky Knight of the Storm Hawks, he's the leader of the reborn team.
* MyNaymeIs: 'Arrow' with an 'e'. It could also be a portmanteau with the word 'aero'.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Last descendant of the original Storm hawks, and one of two (alongside Piper) destined to save Atmos.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: With Lightning Strike. The only real difference between the two (besides age) is eye color.

!! Finn
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Finn_2_6069.jpg]]
->Voiced by MattHill

The team's self-absorbed sharp shooter.
----
* AirGuitar: Will sometimes play this while showing off. Has been seen using a regular one, too.
* AutomaticCrossbow: While it's shown only being loaded one at a time, in practice it works more like this, with it firing multiple bolts without him reloading.
* BottomlessMagazines: He has run out on a couple of occasions, but let's face it - he fits ''way'' more arrows into his crossbow than he should be able to.
* ButtMonkey: His ride being cut in half on a regular basis, for starters. Additionally, any time someone screws up or is on the receiving end of slapstick, it's probably going to be him.
* CatchPhrase: "Chika-cha!" Complete with pointed pistol-fingers.
* TheChosenOne: To his amusement and everyone else's bemusement, he's the prophesied Domo (i.e. savior) of [[{{Atlantis}} Terra Vapos]]. Then it turns out that he's actually a TargetedHumanSacrifice, but he manages to LoopholeAbuse his way out of it.
* CoolShades: He's seen wearing a pair on occasion, usually for humorous effect.
* DrunkWithPower: On more than one occasion. He's usually brought back down to earth by the end of the episode.
* DumbBlonde: A male version, but he's still clearly not the sharpest tool in the shed.
* FingerlessGloves: Part of his standard outfit.
* FriendlySniper: A {{Keet}} and a crack shot in a convenience-sized package.
* GlassCannon: While his accuracy is second to none, he's not very good in a head-to-head fight, either on the ground or on a skimmer. As such, he tends to be the first to go down in any dogfight scenario.
* TheGunslinger: Played up in "The Ultra Dudes". He's also shown to be the best shot in the Storm Hawks.
* HandsomeLech[=/=]CasanovaWannabe: Depending on his luck.
* [[IdiotHero Idiot Lancer]]
* ImprobableAimingSkills: For all his idiocy, he's shown pulling off some truly impressive shots throughout the series. If an episode centers around him, expect a showcase of this.
* {{Keet}}: Very energetic, ''very'' excitable.
%%* TheLancer
* TheMcCoy: More emotional and human than both Aerrow or Piper, often opposed to Piper's more stoic and logical behavior.
%%* PluckyComicRelief
* RunningGag: Having his Skimmer bisected by enemy attacks, or landing crotch-first on the vehicle of a team-mate. Often, the two gags are paired together, with the former leading directly to the latter.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: He's got a girlier scream than ''Piper''.
* ShirtlessScene: More than any of the others, although Aerrow and Stork might have him beat for total onscreen time spent shirtless. (See "Escape" and "Shipwrecked", respectively.)
* SmallNameBigEgo: While he does have ImprobableAimingSkills, he's not quite as badass as he likes to believe he is.
* SnakeOilSalesman: In "Velocity", and revisited much later [[spoiler: in the finale.]] Something of an InformedAbility, as we never actually get to see him making a pitch.
* SpikyHair: Though given the world they live in, this is par for the course.

!! Piper
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Piper_5211.jpg]]
->Voiced by Creator/ChiaraZanni

The team's only girl and a perfectionist crystal specialist.
----
* ActionGirl: Even though she's the team's scientist[=/=]mage, she's also the best martial artist on the team and isn't afraid to get her hands dirty.
* {{Adorkable}}: Sometimes gets like this when she goes into fangirl mode.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: What race she is isn't stated, but she is the only dark-skinned human in the Storm Hawks.
* AmbiguouslyBi: A not-so-subtle example, mostly around Master Cyclonis and especially Starling. Whenever the latter is around she (unsuccessfully) tries to flirt/impress her and often fails, with cringeworthy results. Just watch [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcqR8U8K-U8 this clip]]. She also has a certain amount of ShipTease with Aerrow.
* ArchEnemy: Unlike most examples, hers isn't the resident DarkChick, but rather the BigBad herself, Master Cyclonis.
* BadassBookworm: 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.
* BoomStick: Her crystal staff.
%%* TheChick
* [[ChildMage Teenage Crystal Mage]]: Capable of rivaling Master Cyclonis in terms of Crystal Warfare.
%%* EyesOfGold
* {{Fangirl}}: Towards Domiwick before his true nature became apparent.
* FingerlessGloves: Variant; her gloves have no index finger, little fingers or thumb.
%%* GirlNextDoor
* NumberTwo: Aerrow puts her in charge of the team when he's away.
* PositiveDiscrimination: The AmbiguouslyBrown TokenGirl is probably the least likely to screw up.
* PrinceAndPauper: In "Royal Switch," where Princess Perry swaps places with her (after knocking Piper out).
* RetractableWeapon: Her staff can collapse to become shorter.
* ShipTease: Has a few FoeYay 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.
* TheSmartGuy: 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.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The only female member of the Storm Hawks (unless you count Starling as a SixthRanger of sorts).
* TheSpock: Easily the smartest and most logical member of the team. If something requires brainpower, the episode will either focus on her or Stork.
* [[spoiler:SuperEmpowering: In the last few episodes, after she acquires the ability to infuse others with crystal powers.]]
* TaughtByExperience: She's self-taught when it comes to crystals, having learned about them through hands-on experimentation.
* TookALevelInBadass: Towards the end of the series.
* TwoferTokenMinority: Only girl on the team and the only human who isn't white.
* WomenAreWiser: Compared to her team-mates, Piper's got a lot more social tact, as seen when they dine with the Rex Guardians.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her hair is a sort of navy or cobalt, but it's one of the more minor examples of the trope.

!! Junko
[[quoteright:320: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.
* AlienLunch: The stuff he eats is... pretty strange. Some of it's even alive.
* AntiAir: Has a cannon that he can use to personally shoot down airborne targets.
* ApologeticAttacker: *[[PunchedAcrossTheRoom Punches someone across the room]]* "D'oh, sorry!"
* BerserkButton: Calling Junko a "gleep" might not be the best idea...
* BigEater: Even more so than [[ExtremeOmnivore the]] [[AcquiredPoisonImmunity Colonel]].
* TheBigGuy: He's a Wallop, which are essentially anthropomorphic rhinos with a culture based on strength. Physically the largest of the team.
* CatchPhrase: "On it!" and [[ApologeticAttacker "Sorry!"]]
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: Tends to unintentionally smother his teammates with his hugs.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Some of the things he eats are viewed by Finn with disbelief.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: At least until they try to kill him or endanger the team. Then he has no problem with fighting them.
* GeniusBruiser: While not TheSmartGuy by any stretch, he is the team's mechanic and weapon expert.
* GentleGiant: Physically the strongest and largest of the team, he's also the kindest and gentlest.
%%* GrayEyes
* HeelFaceTurn: "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.
* ImmuneToBullets: Blasts from power crystals don't [[ZigZaggingTrope always]] have the intended effect on him.
--> '''Junko:''' Whoa, tingly!
* LethalChef: Seems to come with his being an ExtremeOmnivore -- he has pretty low standards when it comes to food.
* MeaningfulName: Likes to collect random junk and even has a fortified closet full of scrap metal in his room.
* MrFixit: His main job is to maintain the ship.
* NerdGlasses: 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.
* PlotAllergy: 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 [[SneezeOfDoom Sneezes of Doom]].
* PowerFist: His Knuckle Busters amplify his strength to ridiculous levels.
* RhinoRampage: Like all Wallops, he looks like a bulky humanoid with rhinoceros features.
* SuperStrength: Even without his Knuckle Busters.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: He sometimes uses bombs called turkey burps.
* YouthfulFreckles: 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
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stormhawks_stork_9257.jpg]]
->Voiced by Creator/ScottMcNeil

The oldest member of the team and the neurotic pilot of the Condor.
----
%%* {{Adorkable}}
* AgentMulder
-->'''Aerrow:''' I know it seems hard to believe...
-->'''Stork:''' Nah, I believe pretty much anything.
* BerserkButton: Don't mess with the Condor.
* CatchPhrase: "We're doomed."
* CowardlyLion: While he mostly tries to stay out of the action and cowers at the sight of trouble, he CAN hold his own when push comes to shove...or the the aforementioned BerserkButton is pushed.
* CrazyPrepared: This guy has a gadget/trap/whatever for just about ANYTHING. Even stuff that others would never expect.
* DeadpanSnarker: His paranoia gives him plenty of excuses to lay on the snark.
* TheEeyore: ''Constantly'' complains about how bad or how doomed things are.
* FingerlessGloves: He's even got a pair for his feet, since they're prehensile.
* GadgeteerGenius: Is responsible for the maintenance of the Condor, and has built all sorts of interesting traps and gadgets into her. And that's not counting all the OTHER things he's built...
** When competing against the Rex Guardians, he was able to construct a bike out of spare parts in ''seconds'' complete with custom paint job and unauthorized modifications.
** He built his own, completely unique, vehicle he calls the "Storkmobile," outfitted with every gadget under the sun.
* {{Goth}}: Of the gloomy variety.
* {{Hypochondria}}: Just another part of his obsessive paranoia about everything, really.
* LargeHam: Seems to consist on a diet of pure terror and whatever scenery isn't nailed down or on fire. Will wax poetic on exactly how doomed the team is to whatever has come up now.
* LovableCoward: While he is often terrified of whatever is happening in the episode, he always comes through, and his knowledge of the many terrifying and awful things that exist do give the team an edge.
* MixAndMatchCritters: WordOfGod says merbs like Stork are cold-blooded and smooth-skinned, rather like amphibians, even though their ears are rather mammalian and they have hair on their heads.
* MrFanservice: Has been seen in the buff and swimming trunks on two separate occasions.
* MrFixit: He's responsible for the repair and maintenance of the Condor.
* NightmareFetishist: The man spews more predictions of Doom than the average episode of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''. When Movie Night rolled around, his film was all about the most horrifying and evil things that could easily kill you in the world.
* NonActionGuy: He rarely gets into fights except from behind the wheel of the Condor.
** He even states this in the pilot. "I'm only here till something better comes along."
* OlderThanTheyLook: WordOfGod says he's about twenty. Doesn't look it, does he?
* ProperlyParanoid: He's got measures for anything that can go wrong... because it usually does.
--> '''Stork''': That'll never come in handy, Stork. You're wasting your time, Stork. Hmph. ''(smirks)'' I was right, the rest were wrong.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: In "Payback," after [[spoiler: the ''Condor'' is blown up]].
* TheSmartGuy: Downplayed, especially compared to Piper, but he is a gadgeteer genius and has plenty of knowledge of traps, plenty of survival training, and knowledge about many obscure threats.
* SourSupporter: 90% of the time, he's going on about how the Storm Hawks' latest scheme is going to doom them horribly. He never openly protests, though.
* TokenAdult: Though he may not look it, he's in his early 20's.
* TwitchyEye: Used to show how stressed or scared he is.

!! Radarr
[[quoteright:320: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.
----
* BerserkButton: Radarr doesn't appreciate being referred to as a "pet".
* ChickMagnet: [[UnwantedHarem With chickens]]. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Yes, really.]]
* EvilDetectingDog: He can usually tell when someone's up to no good. Or if certain newcomers might actually be Cyclonians in disguise.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Wrenches, plungers, crystals, live chickens... if he can swing or throw it, he can use it.
* InsistentTerminology: He doesn't like being referred to as a pet. He prefers "Mission Specialist."
* MixAndMatchCritters: Some kind of blue-furred lemur rabbit... thing.
* NarrativeShapeshifting: He's used charades to communicate with his teammates, to varying degrees of success.
* NonHumanSidekick: To Aerrow. Interestingly, what species he is is never mentioned or brought up.
* SilentSnarker: On occasion. Especially if it involves Finn, or some of Aerrow's more... ''questionable'' stunts.
* TeamPet: [[BerserkButton: Just don't call him that.]]
* TheUnintelligible: Which gets special mention one time when he tries to communicate with the rest of the team via intercom.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Cyclonians]]
!! Master Cyclonis
[[quoteright:320: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.
----
* AllEncompassingMantle: She has a cloak that completely covers her down to her feet, with openings at the sides for her arms. She removes it for fighting.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: She is a SorcerousOverlord and can handle any protagonist of her own with relative ease. In the two-part series opening, she easily handles both Aerrow and Starling, and the only way they are able to win is by breaking her ArtifactOfDoom.
* BadassCape: When not wearing her mantle she wears another, shorter cape, which is scalloped like a bat wing.
* BeautyMark: It's the speck on her left cheek.
* BigBad: Supreme ruler of Cyclonia, most intimidating of all the villains, lives in a giant evil castle... yep, we got ourselves a Big Bad right here.
%%* {{The Chessmaster}}
* DarkActionGirl: When the gloves come off, she proves herself a very dangerous combatant.
* [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas Even Bad Girls Love Their Mamas]]: She spends an entire episode trying to retrieve a crystal... so it can fix another one that holds an image of her and her grandmother.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: She's never referred to as anything other than "Master Cyclonis".
* EvilCounterpart: To Piper as the crystal mage. [[spoiler:And due to both of them being capable of SuperEmpowering others.]]
* EvilGenius: A semi-sorcerous example, as crystal alchemy in this series borders on {{MagiTek}}.
%%* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow
* {{Flight}}: Can achieve this with crystal magic.
* {{Goth}}: The above trope, her preference for dusky colors, and her soft voice all contribute to this trope.
* HellishPupils: On one occasion in "Age of Heroes", her pupils/irises contract horizontally.
* HighCollarOfDoom: Made of slender spines that can fold [[InTheHood into a hood]] for extra style points.
* KungFuWizard: Can kick both Starling and Aerrow's ass with nothing more than a SimpleStaff.
* LittleMissBadass: She's around the same age as the Storm Hawks, which is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Aerrow in the pilot, upon seeing her for the first time:
-->'''Master Cyclonis:''' Let me guess. You're that pesky Sky Knight. Aren't you a little young?
-->'''Aerrow:''' I was gonna say the same thing about you!
* LonelyAtTheTop: Implied in "Best Friends Forever," where, despite her infiltration of the Storm Hawks being a ruse, she honestly did feel friendship with Piper.
%%* {{Manipulative Bitch}}
* PsychoticSmirk: Add a OneLiner and this is basically how half of her appearances end.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Besides the whole world-conquering thing, she's an EvilGenius who can often be seen working on something with her crystal machine. She doesn't usually fight, but when she does, she pretty much kicks ass.
* SlasherSmile: She is especially fond of this kind of expression.
* SorcerousOverlord: Given that crystal expertise practically counts as magic in this world, she fits.
* SupernaturalIsPurple: Many of her crystal-related attacks are a ghostly violet.
* SurroundedByIdiots: With the exception of the Dark Ace.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Her motivation. For what ultimate purpose isn't made clear, but it appears to be a family business if what we see about her past is any indication.
%%* TheUnfettered
* VillainTakesAnInterest: In Piper, for her natural talent for harnessing the power of crystals.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Used in some earlier episodes when delivering dramatic lines.
* WhenSheSmiles: In the aforementioned example of [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas Even Bad Girls Love Their Mamas]], when she sees the image restored, she lets a genuine smile cross her face. It's a rather surprising CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Often threatens her minions with this. She never actually does it however.
** [[spoiler:In the second season, she DOES follow through, in PG fashion: Ravess is exiled for [[ItMakesSenseInContext allowing Cyclonia to switch leadership several times when Cyclonis herself was out attending to an important matter,]] and Snipe follows some time after for general incompetence. ]]
* YoungAndInCharge: She's around the same age as the Storm Hawks and already in charge of her own empire.

!! The Dark Ace
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dark_ace_8894.jpg]]
->Voiced by Creator/SamuelVincent

Master Cyclonis's right-hand man and a traitor to the original Storm Hawks.
----
* ArchEnemy: To Aerrow, largely stemming from both rivalry and YouKilledMyFather.
* {{BFS}}: His sword puts basically every other blade in the series to shame.
* TheDragon: To Master Cyclonis.
* DeadpanSnarker: It's hard to ''not'' be one when you're the OnlySaneMan among a bunch of idiots. It's underscored by his accent.
* EvilCounterpart: To Aerrow. He was a former member of the Storm Hawks (Aerrow is a descendant of the originals), the best flier in Cyclonia (Aerrow is the Ace of his team), best physical combatant on Cyclonia (natch)...
* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Him the Dark Ace:]] There's never any mention of what they called him before he became Cyclonia's RedBaron.
* FallenHero: Used to be a member of the original Storm Hawks before his FaceHeelTurn.
* LaserBlade: 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, [[EvilCostumeSwitch 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.
* MrFanservice: Comes with being TallDarkAndHandsome, and having a sophisticated accent to boot.
* RedBaron: "The Dark Ace".
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Interestingly, they're shown as black in flashbacks.
* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: 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.
* TheRival: Once again, to Aerrow. Being an evil counterpart helps a lot.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Evil as all get-out, undeniably good looking, and taller than our heroes.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: 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.
* [[spoiler: [[HeroicRROD Villainous RROD]]: Overloaded with crystal energy in the final battle.]]
* VillainDecay: A rather mild example. He starts out being an invincible RedBaron 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 GiantMecha to give Aerrow and Co. an uphill battle. Of course, he's still easily the finest warrior in the Cyclonian army.
* [[spoiler:WorthyOpponent: 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
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ravess2_2818.jpg]]
->Voiced by Creator/CathyWeseluck

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.
----
* BadBoss: Being a perfectionist, she has little patience or tolerance for stupid antics or failure. [[AllThereInTheManual According to supplemental material,]] she once used her crystal bow to [[ImprobableAimingSkills snipe one of her men while they were flying in formation]] because he had irritated her in some way.
* CleavageWindow: Part of her uniform, which is otherwise rather tasteful.
* ColdSniper: Her bow has some impressive range. One time, she even fired on the ''Condor'' from the ''stratosphere'' (though the orbital platform she was on ''might'' have had something to do with it)!
* DarkActionGirl: Holds her own in a fight much better than any of the {{Mooks}} under her command.
%%* DarkChick: In contrast to Cyclonis, who's the BigBad.
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. In "The Ultra Dudes," it almost seems like a typical EnemyMine scenario will play out between her and the Storm Hawks against Master Cyclonis, until she makes it quite clear she's not giving them anything more than a cryptic hint.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Finn, as both are archers with a fondness for music (Finn's rock n' roll VS Ravess' violin).
* EvilRedhead: Well, magenta-head really. Though it does depend on the lighting.
* EyesOfGold: Combined with her distinctive hairstyle, they give her a rather hawklike look.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Her dynamic with Snipe. She's the responsible one, by the way (relatively speaking).
* InstrumentOfMurder: Her violin bow.
* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: Often has one of her squadron playing her {{Leitmotif}} when she flies into battle.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Very distinct and [[SorryILeftTheBGMOn usually played by one of her own troops when she flies into battle.]]
* MusicalAssassin: With the Megaphonic Mega-Masher.
* RevengeBeforeReason: A couple of secret missions were compromised because Ravess couldn't resist attacking the Storm Hawks. Master Cyclonis was not pleased.
* SiblingYinYang: With her younger brother Snipe, a dim-witted brute.
* SmugSnake: For all her belief that her plans are superior, she's prone to making mistakes that end up proving costly. For example, in "Stratosphere," her high-altitude attacks on the Storm Hawks alert them to her presence. [[NiceJobFixingItVillain If she had waited until the KillSat she was building was complete, they never would've been able to get there in time to stop it.]]
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:Subverted. The second season has her getting progressively more fed up with Master Cyclonis, hinting that she'll betray her. Unfortunately for her, she's exiled from Cyclonia before she can stab any backs.]]
* VillainousDemotivator: She's not exactly known for giving positive reinforcement to her men.
* WickedCultured: Most evident in her fondness for the violin.

!! Snipe
[[quoteright:300: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.
----
* AttackAttackAttack: 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 TooDumbToLive below.
* BigLittleBrother: To Ravess.
* TheBrute: In contrast to Ravess, [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Chick]] and ColdSniper.
* TheCaligula: [[ItMakesSenseInContext 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.
* CarryABigStick: More specifically, a huge mace studded with crystals.
* DumbMuscle: Not exactly the brightest tool in the Cyclonian arsenal; his standard battle strategy is essentially "keep hitting until something breaks."
* EpicFlail: The aforementioned crystal mace has a chain connecting the hilt to the head, allowing the head to be detached to turn it into one of these.
* EvilCounterpart: To Junko, being a mighty strong-man.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The foolish sibling in contrast with Ravess's responsible sibling.
* LargeHam: He tends to bellow when talking, especially when ranting about the glory of Cyclonia--or, more often, his own.
* ManChild: When reveling in his custom-designed assault carrier, Snipe pretends to be blowing things up in a manner reminiscent of a kid's pretend game.
* MoreDakka: The reason he fails in his debut episode is because he puts ''so many'' guns on his super ship that it doesn't have enough power to keep itself in the air. While the guns are working, it's unleashing terrifying levels of firepower. It's only for a few seconds, but still.
* SiblingYinYang: With his older sister Ravess, a cultured tactician.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He's nowhere near as important to the Cyclonian cause as he thinks he is.
* TooDumbToLive: 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 (assuming there was anything at all).

!! Mr. Moss

The warden of the Cyclonian prison on Terra Zartacla.
----
* TheAlcatraz: He runs a Cyclonian prison from which no one's successfully escaped, but that doesn't stop Aerrow from trying. Bonus points for being located on a terra named ''[[SdrawkcabName Zartacla]]''.
* BadBoss: Is known for insulting or [[DopeSlap dope-slapping]] his dim-witted right-hand toady.
* BerserkButton: Damaging his skimmer is the best way to provoke him.
* BolivianArmyEnding: He and his men are last seen stuck in the Wastelands, with their army of tamed fire scorpions getting unruly...[[OhCrap and they've run out of scorpion feed.]]
* CorruptHick: He's got the hat and accent of one, anyway.
* EyeTwitch: Gets one of these when he walks back to his prison after failing to catch Aerrow...[[spoiler:only to discover that Aerrow's escape was a big distraction so the Storm Hawks could free every last ONE of his prisoners. Cue the SkywardScream]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: He comes off as polite and cheerful when pursuing Aerrow, but there's no mistake that he's ''not'' going to go easy on the young Sky Knight if he catches him.
* FatBastard: He's got quite the belly, and is very unpleasant towards his prisoners. And Hamish.
* GenreSavvy: He sees through the majority of Aerrow's tricks during the latter's escape, and doesn't settle for NoOneCouldSurviveThat when Aerrow opts to jump off a waterfall. The rusty skimmer came straight out of left field, though.
* ICallHerVera: His customised Heli-Blade is called "Bessie".
* TheJailer: In charge of Terra Zartacla, a Cyclonian Prison.
* LargeHam: When he stops being FauxAffablyEvil, he lets loose the ham.
--> "Yer messin' with the ''WRRROONG WARDEN!''"
* {{Revenge}}: Attempts this in his second appearance.
* WardensAreEvil: Cruel, sadistic, and takes pleasure in chasing after escaped convicts.
* WhipItGood: He has a whip that can fire laser saw blades.

!! 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.
* TheBeastmaster: In "The Last Stand", he commands an army of fire scorpions -- at least until they run out of scorpion feed.
* TheChewToy: Tends to get the dirtiest and most dangerous jobs.
%%* YouthfulFreckles

!! The Nightcrawlers

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: At no point does the viewer (or any character) meet a Nightcrawler that is anything other than fanatically loyal to Master Cyclonis.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: 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.
* AnimalMotifs: Bats: nocturnal, and their cycles unfold into bat like gliders, their flight pack in the finale even flap.
* CoolBike: Notable for switching into powered hang gliders instead of the normal design.
* DarkIsEvil: Full stop. They serve Cyclonia fanatically, and are much more overtly malevolent than the Talons.
* EliteMooks: Piper identifies them as Master Cyclonis' personal guard in their first appearance.
* MookLieutenant: The Red Eyed leader of the nightcrawlers.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The leader has these to distinguish him from his underlings.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Whenever they talk, it tends to be like this.
* WeakenedByTheLight: Their armor is weak to light, and they don't seem to like it. Eventually they upgrade and it becomes a non-issue.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Initially, it's the sunlight. After their upgrade, [[spoiler: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.

* AscendedExtra: He first appeared in "Radarr Love", and later on was prominent in "Power Grab" before making one last appearance in the final episodes.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: In "Power Grab", he helps Snipe, then Repton, take control of Cyclonia in Master Cyclonis' absence in hopes of getting a promotion.
* EmbarrassingNickname: 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.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: He really, really, wants to be a feared Talon commander...but just can't pull it off.
* NoNameGiven: He's not even OnlyKnownByHisNickname; "Cyclonian #2" comes from the credits of his debut episode, as a BrickJoke 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.

[[folder: The Raptors]]
!! Repton
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Repton_2692.jpg]]
->Voiced by Creator/ScottMcNeil

The leader of the Raptors.
----
* BattleBoomerang: His weapon of choice, which doubles as a sword.
* [[spoiler:DisneyVillainDeath: Near the end of the series, Stork raids Terra Bogaton to avenge the destruction of the Condor. The ensuing fight nearly sends him and Repton over the edge of the balcony they're fighting on. However, when Stork [[SaveTheVillain tries to save Repton]], the outraged Raptor hurls his boomerang at the Merb...[[HoistByHisOwnPetard which comes back around and hits him,]] sending him plummeting into the clouds.]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler: When Stork has him cornered and trying to get revenge for the Raptors blowing up the ''Condor'', Repton points out that unlike a person, the ''Condor'' is a ''ship.'' It can be rebuilt. This actually snaps Stork out of his RoaringRampageOfRevenge.]]
* PetTheDog: A few rare occasions, towards his brothers. Namely, in "Fire and Ice," he was taking the three of them to a desert Terra which, due to its arid and sunny conditions, was like a vacation spot to lizards like them. Too bad the Blizzarians froze the place over in a bid to make a new home for themselves...
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: Which blazes with crystal energy when thrown.
* SssssnakeTalk: It's a Raptor thing.
* SurroundedByIdiots: The distribution of brains between him and his brothers is... uneven, to say the least.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: He's never seen with anything covering his chest entirely, only wearing shoulderpads and some armor.

!!Hoerk
->Voiced by Colin Murdock

* TheBrute: The largest and after Repton, the most aggressive. He's also not particularly smart.
* DumbMuscle
* FlatCharacter: 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 Creator/ScottMcNeil

* AntiVillain: In "Life with Leugey," he doesn't seem all ''that'' bad, albeit annoying.
* BigEater: ''Yes.'' For reference, he's the only one that's excited about the Cheese Stone that the Raptors steal from Terra Gale (until he gets sick of cheese, at least).
* TheDitz: He's not exactly the nastiest of the Raptors, or the most focused or sensible.
* DumbMuscle: ''Very'' strong. ''Very'' stupid. Possibly the strongest and definitely the dumbest of Repton's crew.
* FatIdiot: He's got the most girth and the least brains of the brothers.
* TheScapegoat: If something goes wrong, he tends to get the blame for it.
* StockholmSyndrome: 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.

!!Spitz
->Voiced by Creator/SamuelVincent

* TheNapoleon: The smallest of his brothers, but no less vicious and cruel.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: He's easily the smartest of Repton's brothers.
* SssssnakeTalk: Speaks with a lisp.

!! Starling
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Starling_StormHawks_6281.jpg]]
->Voiced by NicoleOliver

The Sky Knight of the Interceptors, a squadron that was taken down by Repton.
----
* ActionGirl: A prerequisite for being a female Sky Knight.
* CoolBigSis: To the Storm Hawks. Deconstructed in "Storm Hawks Seven", where she becomes frustrated with their lack of maturity. Reconstructed by the end of the episode, when she learns to loosen up and have some fun.
* TheDrifter: She has elements of this. (Namely, ButNowIMustGo)
* FightingWithChucks: Nunchucks tipped with {{Laser Blade}}s, no less.
%%* GreenEyes
* IWorkAlone: She has no problem teaming up when it's necessary, but usually prefers solo work and declines the Storm Hawks' offers of team membership.
* MixAndMatchWeapon: Her nunchucks have energy blades on the ends of the handles.
* NeverBeHurtAgain: After having lost her squadron, she tries to avoid forming attachments so she won't have to risk losing them again.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's in her early twenties, but viewers frequently mistake her for being younger.
* ReverseMole: In her first appearance, she was working undercover in Cyclonia to find out their plans.
* SixthRanger: When she's around. She's only made a few appearances, but is considered to be a sort of part-time Storm Hawk.
* SoleSurvivor: Of the Inteceptors squadron, courtesy of Repton. It also explains [[TheDrifter much of her]] [[IWorkAlone behavior]].
* ZettaiRyouiki: Gets grade A with shorts and boots/stockings.

!! Suzy Lu
[[quoteright:259:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/suzy-lu_2723.jpg]]
->Voiced by NicoleOliver

The Sky Knight of the Absolute Zeroes.
----
* CanadaEh: The Blizzarians lay on the Canadian stereotyping so thick you could cut it with a knife.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: A common problem of hers, as shown in "Fire and Ice". While she does try to keep her people happy, she can also be a bit myopic about it at times.
--> '''Piper''': Didn't you check to see if anything lived here before you ''froze'' it?
--> '''Suzy Lu''': We hollered real loud...
* EarlyBirdCameo: She appears briefly in the pilot with some of the other sky knights from later episodes. She and her squad also appeared briefly in the episode before their official appearance.
* GreenEyes: She's got 'em.
* TheLadette: A softer version, but she is the leader of the team, and the hardest worker of all the Absolute Zeroes.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Blizzarians appear to be a blend between rabbits and some kind of canine.
* OralFixation: She's usually seen chewing bubblegum.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: It's spelled as "Suzy Lu" on the official website and "Suzi-Lu" in the credits to "Fire and Ice".

!!Billy Rex
[[quoteright:259:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/billyrex_8551.jpg]]
->Voiced by Asaph Fipke

A member of the Absolute Zeroes.
----
* BigEater: He's the local pie-eating champion.
* CanadaEh: Like all the Absolute Zeroes, he's ''very'' Canadian.
* CloudCuckoolander: Crashing face-first into a wall during a reckless stunt only makes him cheer louder afterwards, and talking to someone doesn't stop him from catching snowflakes with his tongue. Other male Absolute Zeroes seem to be this as well.
* CreatorCameo: Voiced by the show's creator.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Inadvertently comes off as sexist during the first meeting with the Storm Hawks. [[spoiler: Interestingly, it's somewhat reversed from what everyone thinks- in his mind, the ''women'' are the ones who make the decisions and are the leaders, while the men train and have fun. He wasn't excluding Piper because she was a girl, he was excluding her because he thought ''she'' was the Sky Knight, and that Suzy and her were supposed to do leader things together.]]
* MadeOfIron: He's show physically colliding with various large objects at high speed and then getting back up, looking no worse for wear.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Being a Blizzarian and all, he's a sort of canine-rabbit hybrid.
* TheSnackIsMoreInteresting: Stuck on a small rock surrounded by blazing lava? Why not roast a hot dog?

!!Wren
[[quoteright:191:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stormhawkswren_5301.jpeg]]

A retired sky knight living on Terra Gale.
----
* AbnormalAmmo: He fires random junk at incoming targets with a catapult.
* BlowYouAway: Used a Windstone crystal to defend his home from Cyclonians.
* ImprovisedArmour: Made largely out of metal kitchenware and random junk.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He can come off as your typical FrenchJerk at times, but he's got his people's best interests at heart.
* LargeHam: His presence in any given scene is much larger than his stature, that's for sure.
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: He comes up to his daughter's ''waist''.
* [[OverprotectiveDad Overprotective Granddad]]

!!Dove
[[quoteright:155:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stormhawksdove_7259.jpeg]]
->Voiced by TabithaStGermain

Wren's granddaughter.
----

* DamselOutOfDistress: In "Gale Force Winds" she escapes from imprisonment and runs into the Storm Hawks while they're looking for her.
* FryingPanOfDoom: She wields one.
* ImprovisedArmour: It's clearly made out of an old stove and a pot.

The Sky Knight of the Red Eagles, until he betrays them in the first episode.
----
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: Pretends that his earlier betrayal was because of this.]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: His hair and eyes match.
* [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn: Despite being a Sky Knight for Terra Atmos, he turned over to the Cyclonians]].
* [[spoiler: FallenHero: Used to be a proud knight of Atmos, but turned traitor.]]
* [[spoiler: TheMole: Worked for Cyclonia the whole time.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler: His whole character is "Looks like he's a good guy, but turns out he was bad all along." It's impossible to talk about him without that.]]

!! Arygyn the Skeelur
[[quoteright:260:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Arygyn_7799.png]]
->Voiced by Creator/ScottMcNeil

Famous, eccentric warrior-trainer. Capable of shape-shifting into a bird. [[spoiler: One of the four remaining guardians of Atmos.]]
----
* AmbiguouslyGay: Talks in a stereotypical accent and is ''extremely'' flamboyant, but nothing is confirmed about his sexuality.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: It takes one of these to have his students train up vital combat skills at an ''amusement park''.
* TheGadfly: His interactions with the Storm Hawks seem to be an equal mix of his TricksterMentor routine and messing with them for the heck of it.
%%* GreatGazoo
* MulticoloredHair: Which carries over to his bird form.
* TricksterMentor: Under the guise of training the Storm Hawks, he takes them to an amusement park and has them compete in various challenges (which he turns UpToEleven).
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Into an equally gaudy large bird.
* WaxOnWaxOff: The lessons he gives the Storm Hawks.

!!Lightning Strike
[[quoteright:259:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shlightningstrike_3944.jpg]]

The Sky Knight of the original Storm Hawks, and Aerrow's ancestor.
----
* BrownEyes: The only thing distinguishing him from Aerrow.
* DisneyVillainDeath: If the Dark Ace didn't get him, the fall certainly did.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: He's the only character we see who regularly uses a shield in combat.
* PosthumousCharacter: While important to the backstory, he's only ever seen in flashbacks after he dies.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He's practically identical to Aerrow save for the eye color.

!!Princess Peregrine / Perry
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Screen_Shot_2012-01-12_at_4_23_49_AM_697.png]]
->Voiced by Creator/ChiaraZanni

The princess of Terra Klockstoppia, a backwards terra where crystal technology is banned. She longs for adventure, but her life is run by the same strict regent who runs the kingdom.
----
* AlliterativeName: When you include her title.
* DistinguishingMark: She has a "royal birthmark".
* IdenticalStranger: As the image shows, she's practically identical to Piper.
* [[PrinceAndPauper Princess and Pauper]]: She's a princess who looks identical to Piper, and they switch places... though Piper doesn't agree to it.
* PrincessesPreferPink: she's seen wearing at least one pink dress.
* RebelliousPrincess: Dislikes the way her people live and wants to overturn the ban on crystal technology, eventually running away from Klockstoppia.
* TheSouthpaw: She's seen to be left-handed.

!!The Colonel

A spider-like crime boss.
----
* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: On account of the below trope.
* AlienLunch: He built up his poison immunity so he could eat this on a regular basis.
* AllWebbedUp: Does this to Junko for a perceived offense.
* BigEater: Though not as much as Junko.
%%* DeathGlare
* TheDreaded: Some degree of this if the Raptors' reaction is any indication.
%%* EvilLaugh
* ExtremeOmnivore: Similarly to Junko.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He presents himself as polite and cultured, but you know he's a nasty piece of work when even the ''Raptors'' are scared of him.
* KarmaHoudini: Despite being a notorious crime boss who gave the Storm Hawks trouble on more than one occasion, the Colonel never actually suffers any real retribution.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Just "the Colonel".
* PetTheDog: He has a pet RidiculouslyCuteCritter, Mr. Fluffykins, that he genuinely cares for.
%%* TheMobBossIsScarier
* RealMenWearPink: See PetTheDog above.
* SpiderPeople: He has a humanoid upper body mounted on arthropod legs, giving him a remarkably spider-like appearance. He even has facial markings that resemble a spider's multiple eyes.

!!Captain Scabulous

Leader of the Murk Raiders, a pirate crew that makes Terra Deep their primary base of operations.
----
* ArtificialLimbs: His left arm is metal from the elbow down.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He puts up a better fight than any of the Murk Raiders under his command.
* TheDreaded: Murk Raiders are this in general, and being their captain, this extends to Scabulous as well.
* DreadlockWarrior: He sports both the hairstyle and the combat prowess to qualify.
* AFatherToHisMen: Unlike the other villains on the show, one gets the feeling that Scabulous is a relatively pleasant boss to work under. Apparently, his crew is comfortable enough with him that one of them ''asking him for a dance at mealtime'' isn't seen as out of the ordinary, and he's willing to spend the money earned from selling off a priceless artifact on kitchen upgrades so that his crew can eat better.
* HandicappedBadass: He's only got one working eye. Doesn't stop him from kicking ass.
* LargeHam: One of the biggest in the show. Just listen to his speech about kitchen upgrades in "Calling All Domos", particularly when he gets to the ''"ORRRRRREGANO!"''
* PunchClockVillain: Unlike the Cyclonians, Scabulous has nothing against the Storm Hawks personally and is [[OnlyInItForTheMoney motivated solely by profit]]. For instance, when the Storm Hawks lure the Murk Raiders into a Cyclonian task force, Scabulous decides to set his sights on the Cyclonians instead as they have more stuff worth pillaging, and the main reason he's an antagonist in "Calling All Domos" is that he plans to upgrade his ship's kitchen by selling off the episode's {{Macguffin}}.
* RealMenWearPink: Who knew the grizzled pirate captain is into ''ballroom dancing?''
* SinisterScimitar: His favored weapon is a crystal-powered energy cutlass.
