    The Hyperforce 

Chiro

Voiced by: Greg Cipes

The Protagonist of the series and The Leader of the Hpyerforce.

He pilots the Torso Tank Driver 1, which forms the torso and limbs of the Super Robot. Chiro's powers come from the Power Primate, an entity inside of him.

Antauri

The black monkey in the seasons one and two, later the silver monkey in seasons three and four, and second-in-command. Antauri is very calm and collected and cares much for his friends. He often acts as a leader, and is serious about training. He teaches Chiro how to control the Power Primate, and also gives spiritual advice to the rest of the Team.

He pilots Brain Scrambler Pilot 2, which forms the head of the Super Robot. His main weapon is his Ghost Claws and Monkey Mind Scream.
  • Blessed with Suck: Though very powerful, his fully robotic silver monkey form makes him susceptible to mechanical issues that can render him immobile or cause him to lose control of his body.
  • Came Back Strong: After his resurrection as the silver monkey he is much stronger than before.
  • Disney Death: In the Season Two finale. At the beginning of Season Three it's revealed that his soul was just hidden within Chiro's body until Chiro could find a way to bring him back; Antauri eventually returns by transferring his soul to the body of the Silver Monkey. Yes, you should already know this.
  • Mentor Mascot: He is Chiro's mentor and a monkey. It's worth noting that Antauri doesn't morally support him in the first season. While he most often reassures the others to trust in their leader, he shows moments of doubts, like in the episode "Secret of the Sixth Monkey". He grows closer to Chiro in the second season, while Chiro actively seeks out his advice and confides in him about his worries by this point.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: He dies in the second season and is back by the start of the third.
  • Mundane Utility: He uses his Psychic Powers to short circuit Chiro's gaming systems and cheat on games.
  • Noble Male, Roguish Male: The noble to Sprx's roguish. (One of two)
  • Not so Above It All: Even he has his quirky moments. From "Big Lug"...
    Antauri: Mind over matter... (camera zooms out to show Antauri wearing a soda drink hat) ...is nothing compared to hands-free refreshments! What a marvelous invention!
    • In the same episode...
    Sprx: (as Antauri uses his Ghost Claws on the Sun Riders pinball machine) What are you doing, Antauri?! Get your ghost paws outta that machine!
    Antauri: What? At least I didn't tilt.
  • The Obi-Wan: To Chiro's Luke.
  • Psychic Powers: Levitation, ghost paws, etc.
  • The Sheriff: In "Evil Ages" when he and Sprx are turned into cowboys.
  • Warrior Monk: Again "He teaches Chiro how to control the Power Primate, and also gives spiritual advice to the rest of the Team."
  • "What Do They Fear?" Episode: While it's unknown what he was afraid of prior to his rebirth, in "Night of Fear" his worst fear is revealed to be losing control of his robotic body.

SPRX-77

Voiced by: Corey Feldman

The red monkey, and the team's best pilot. He is a comedian and has a big ego, but is very brave, smart and willing to protect his comrades.

He pilots Fist Rocket 3, which becomes the right hand of the Super Robot. His main weapon is his Magnetic Hands.
  • Accidental Pervert: In "The Savage Lands", he ends up in what can be considered a compromising position with Nova after she saves him from a Booby Trap. Complete with her giving him the expected Armor-Piercing Slap.
  • Ace Pilot: He pilots Fist Rocket 3 and is the team's best pilot.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: He's a Jerk with a Heart of Gold who's in love with the feisty Tsundere Nova. Their routine of him flirting or teasing her and her punching him in return is one of the biggest sources of comedy in the series.
  • Berserk Button:
    • He is usually pretty easy-going, but mess with his friends, and his personality can take a rather scary turn.
    • Calling him Sparky isn't really a good idea...
  • Big Brother Mentor: Towards Chiro in the beginning. Interestingly, this role wanes with Antauri's growing relationship to Chiro.
  • The Corruptible: It's implied that the Fire of Hate easily corrupted him because of his weak will to fight against Skeleton King. Although the same thing almost happened to Gibson with the Ice Crystal of Vengeance, so this one is debatable.
  • The Gadfly: He likes to tease others, especially Gibson and Nova.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Doesn't like it when Nova develops a crush on Tikqudo, one of the Cathurians.
  • Handicapped Badass: In "Night Of Fear", he is still very badass despite being blind.
  • Hand Puppet: In "Incident on Ranger 7", Sprx mades a Nova puppet out of an old paper bag.
  • Hellish Pupils: When he is Brainwashed and Crazy.
  • Heroic Fatigue: By the time of the Season Four finale, Sprx expresses a great deal of stress and weak will as he tries to stop Valina and Mandarin alongside the team, since as he says so himself, despite all the team's efforts and sacrifices, Skeleton King is still a threat. This makes him vulnerable to the Fire of Hate's corruption.
  • It's All My Fault: He blames himself for letting Nova get sucked into a wormhole. Later, he says this word for word after Skeleton King is reborn because he helped Valina and Mandarin.
  • I Will Find You: In the Season Three finale, he lets Nova get sucked into a wormhole and is determined to go look for her for most of the finale. She comes back after he asks The Being to bring her back.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's cocky, sarcastic and brash and let's not get into his big ego. Yet, he's still a good guy who cares a lot about his friends.
  • Leader Wannabe: He argued with Gibson who holds the position of third-in-command.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: He drools with hearts in his eyes whenever he lays his eyes on hot women like Aurora Six and the Jungle Girl, much to Nova's dismay.
  • Mars Needs Women: He really likes human women, but he prefers monkeys deep down and Nova is the only one he has genuine feelings for.
  • Master of the Mixed Message
    Sprx: Nova, I'm glad to have you... as my friend.
  • Maybe Ever After: He and Nova either have this or a Last Minute Hook Up. In the Season Four finale, Nova finally confesses her feelings for him, but it's unclear whether Sprx actually heard the confession, since he was Brainwashed and Crazy and the team has to start a war against the resurrected Skeleton King immediately afterward. So whether they became a couple depends on your viewpoint.
  • Shock and Awe: He uses electrical attacks.
  • Spell My Name with an S: Fans have several spellings for both his full name and nickname. SPRX-77, SPRX77, Sprx, Sparks, Sparx, and there are probably a few more spellings if one looked around the fanfic archives long enough.
  • "What Do They Fear?" Episode: In "Night Of Fear", his worst fear is revealed to be going blind: "the worst thing that can happen to a pilot."
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In the penultimate episode of Season Four, he calls Gibson out for not taking the Ice Crystal of Vengeance and blames him for letting Valina and Mandarin get away. Ironic since Sprx ends up being turned evil by the Fire of Hate and joining Valina and Mandarin.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Like Chiro, he's afraid of water at first.
  • Will They or Won't They?: With Nova, with whom he has much tension, False Starts and other problems. In the Season Four finale, Nova finally confesses her feelings for him, but the status of their relationship is left unclear.

Mr. Hal Gibson

Voiced by: Tom Kenny

The blue monkey, and the team's science officer. His full name is Mr. Hal Gibson, but he prefers to be called Gibson. He is very proper, and speaks with a touch of a British accent. He prides himself on his high IQ, and becomes easily frustrated when faced with beings of lesser intelligence. He is a tad arrogant, and hates to admit whenever he is wrong.

He pilots Fist Rocket 4, which becomes the left hand of the Super Robot. His main weapon is his Drillers.
  • Defrosting Ice King: Due to the high standards and his arrogance, his in-series relationship with Otto starts off rocky, often being annoyed by the mechanic's quirks and questioning his intelligence. Gibson not only mellows over the series, but he comes to appreciate and care for Otto fiercely.
  • Leader Wannabe: He argued with Sprx who holds the position of third-in-command.
  • The Medic: Gibson handles most doctoral responsibilities.
  • Mundane Utility: He uses his drills as a vacuum cleaner. He also uses them to shot a water beam back at Otto's face and cheat on a Snowball Fight.
  • Not so Above It All: When he gets pulled into Sprx and/or Otto's shenanigans, he admonishes them for being childish before retaliating, often over the top (like the time where Otto splashed him and Nova and after mocking them, Gibson shot a water beam with his drills back at his face). He also got distracted whenever he and Sprx continued their argument over who holds the position of third in command.

Otto

Voiced by: Clancy Brown

The green monkey, and the team's mechanic. Although his talent with machines is unmatched, he is clueless in almost everything else.

He pilots Foot Crusher Cruiser 5, which becomes the left foot of the Super Robot. His main weapon is his Energy Saws.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite his oddities and quirks, his genius in mechanics is astounding. He also owns a good level of perception and often moves proactively.
  • Chainsaw Good: Even in the Hidden Fortress where he installed his own saws in the security system.
    Otto: Oh yeah, I added some saws.
    Sprx: You add saws to everything.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: An odd ball to be sure but a well grounded one whenever the situation requires it.
  • Extreme Omnivore: He once happily slurped down a bowl of live grubs without indigestion. Then there's the "Wonder Fun Meat World"
  • My Brain Is Big: Briefly after Gibson accidently makes him super smart in "Meet the Wigglenog".
  • Nice Guy: He's the nicest and friendliest member of the Hyperforce.
  • Only Sane Man: He and Nova in "The Savage Lands" kept their focus on the mission when Sprx and Gibson lost themselves in their argument.
  • Punny Name: His name is pronounced "Auh-toh", sounding like a scientific experiment.
  • Sarcasm-Blind:
    Otto: (as they're watching Jinmay's transmission) Woah... she needs us, on Shuggazoom!
    Sprx: Brilliant deduction Captain Obvious! You win the Golden Star!
    Otto: Thanks!
  • Ship Tease: It's implied he might have a slight crush on Nova, but it's never confirmed.
  • The Smart Guy: One of two, in terms of mechanics.
  • "What Do They Fear?" Episode: In "Night Of Fear", his worst fear is revealed to be clams with feet.

Nova

Voiced by: Kari Wahlgren

The yellow monkey, and the only female in the team. Tomboyish and feisty, she's the team's main fighter with a short temper.

She pilots Foot Crusher Cruiser 6, which forms the right foot of the Super Robot. Her main weapon is her Robotic Fists.
  • Action Girl
  • Angst Nuke: Her body overheats when she gets angry, and she can become this if she can't get her temper under control. The first time this happened, she became so hot that she caused an explosion that destroyed much of the training room and sent Mandarin flying back into a wall.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: To Sprx in the Season Four finale.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Used a couple of times on Sprx, and she can do it with her tail.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: After Sprx asks The Being to bring her back after she gets sucked into a wormhole, Nova returns as a giant-sized version of herself just in time to save Chiro from Mandarin. She returns to her normal size after getting attacked by Skeleton King Droid.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: She and Sprx are obviously in love, but they spend too much time at each other's throats to sort out their feelings.
  • Berserk Button: Nova can't stand the cold...
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Nova is usually very nice and caring, but she is still a feisty Action Girl with Power Fists.
  • The Big Gal: She plays this role on The Team and shares it with Sprx as their toughest fighter.
  • Break the Cutie: In the Season Four finale. Sprx turns evil, he attacks her and her friends, she's forced to fight him, he takes her as hostage and tortures her by tearing her apart with his magnets. Fortunately, she gets better after he returns to normal.
  • Daddy's Girl: It's implied she was very close to her creator the Alchemist before he became the Skeleton King.
  • Disney Death: In the Season Three finale. She gets sucked into a wormhole, but returns after Sprx asks The Being to bring her back.
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: No one seems to care when she punches and slaps Sprx. Sprx and his big mouth are usually kind of asking for it.
  • Power Fist: Her in-build hand weapons are massive fists.
  • Raised by Dudes: She has been surrounded by male monkeys all her life and was unable to socialize before the Monkey Translator was built. It's no surprise she's One of the Boys.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Despite her tomboyish personality, Nova is rather fond of cute things. Her room is filled with stuffed animals and even a tea set... in addition to an arsenal of battle weapons.
  • Tsundere: More of a Type B, since Nova is usually quite kind and agreeable, if feisty. Then Sprx opens his mouth...
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Don't hurt Sprx in front of Nova.

The Super Robot

The Hyperforce's Humongous Mecha and home.

Jinmay

Voiced by: Ashley Johnson

A robot in the form of a young girl. She was found floating in space by the Skeleton King. He brought her aboard the Citadel of Bone, and erased her memories. He then sent her to Shuggazoom along with Sakko, one of his agents, in an attempt to eliminate the Hyperforce. Shortly after, she leaves Shuggazoom in an attempt to learn more about her origins.

In the season three Jinmay begins to train her powers. She is then given a Hyperforce uniform, making her an honorary member.
  • Absentee Actor: For some reason, she doesn't appear in most of the episodes of Season 4 despite being a member of the Hyperforce by that point.
  • Action Girl: The sixth member of the Hyper Force.
  • Affirmative Action Girl: Before she joined, Nova was the only girl.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Girly Bruiser: She's kind, polite, adorable, and girly as they get; her civilian outfit is pink hair in pigtails, a shirt with a pink heart on it and a skirt. You'd better hope she's on your side, or she'll blow you to bits with her eye lasers, or some of the many missiles loaded in her robot body. And she's not too bad at chucking vehicles, either.
  • The Mole: At first, although she wasn't aware of it herself.

    Allies 

The Sun Riders

Voiced by: Keone Young (Super Quasar), Meredith Salenger (Aurora Six), Tom Kenny (Johnny Sunspot)

A trio of actors-turned-villians-turned-heroes whom Chiro once idolized, then fought against, and is now allied with. In their debut, they were working under Skeleton King in exchange for their powers, but after their defeat by the Hyperforce, they turned over a new leaf and started using their powers to guard an endangered colony on Delta 5, a volcanic planet near Shuggazoom.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Johnny. It was easier to show this after he switched sides. In his first appearance, he called his teammates "losers," saying he didn't need them, after they were knocked off of the Super Robot's shoulders (Bear in mind that he was still a villian at the time). The next time he appeared, whenever someone in the group was in danger, he expressed genuine concern and usually did something to help.
  • Known Only by Their Nickname: Come on, their parents couldn't have named them Super Quasar and Aurora Six.
  • The Leader: Quasar is supposed to be this, but Johnny seems to fit the role better.
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: One of the best cases you'll ever find. Chiro idolizes them until they make a Deal with the Devil and attacked him and the team. He gets so mad after that battle, he immediately starts smashing his Sun Riders merchandise. Fifteen episodes later, they regain his respect after proving they are good guys now.
  • Show Within a Show: What they were doing for a living before their Deal with the Devil.
  • Think Nothing of It:
    Chiro: (after being rescued by Johnny) Uh, thanks.
    Johnny: Don't mention it. You might start thinking I'm one of the good guys. *smirks*
  • Tricked Out Gloves: Johnny Sunspot has a pair that can control black holes.

Planetoid Q

Voiced by: Clancy Brown

A living planetesimal ordered by the Skeleton King to collide with Shuggazoom. Later, it is convinced by Chiro to make its own decisions and do what it wants instead of listening to the Skeleton King's commands.

Robo-Apes

Scrapperton's minions who at first pretend to be future citizens of Shuggazoom in order to trick the Hyperforce. They betray Scrapperton and become the Hyperforce's allies.

Mobiuz Quint

Voiced by: Lance Henrikson

An Ace Pilot whom Sprx admired. The Hyperforce found him floating unconscious around the wreckage of his ship, The Last Chance, and took him into the Super Robot. Near them was the Citadel of Bone, where the team realized that Quint's crew was alive, so they went in to save them. However, a tiny piece of the Citadel, which Quint had kept tied around his neck, corrupted his mind. It made him want revenge on the Citadel for wrecking his ship, rather than rescue his crew. He'd stolen the Super Robot's neutron generator and attacked Chiro and Sprx when they tried to stop him. Chiro managed to talk him back to his senses.
  • Ace Pilot: If Sprx admires you, then you qualify.
  • Back for the Finale: He returns in the final episode to join the Hyperforce in the war against Skeleton King.
  • Badass Normal: He doesn't have any special powers to speak of— just a laser harpoon, a helpful crew, and a ship at least a hundred times the size of the Super Robot.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Corrupted by a piece of the Citadel of Bone.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: That's really the kind of guy he is when he's not being corrupted by space bones.
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: Sprx loses his respect for him after Quint becomes corrupted by the Citadel of Bone but they get on good terms after Quint is talked back to his senses.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Yes, Quint. Forget rescuing your crew. This Citadel of Bone made a mess of your ship, so blowing it up, along with yourself and the Hyperforce is what you need to do. Not rescue your crew!
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Against the Skeleton Kign for what happened to him and his crew.
  • Scary Teeth: Shouldn't a human have molars?!
  • You Are What You Hate: Chiro tells him this almost word-for-word, but it takes him a few seconds to realize he was right.

Neekeeta and Tikqudo

A pair of Cathurian siblings who ask the Hyperforce to help their tribe fight a group of oppressive monsters known as Mantidons after they crash in their planet.

The Frog Team

Voiced by: Aaron Ruell (Suupa)

A team of frogs the Hyperforce encounters in space.
  • Self-Parody: Of the Monkey Team. They have their own Super Robot; they consist of six members of whom one, the leader, isn't a frog; they are color-coded, with the 'color matches' apparently holding the same positions on their respective teams, like Suupa and Gibson (science), the green frog and Otto (mechanics), etc.

Master Ah-Fei

Voiced by: Mako Iwamatsu

Nova's Old Master.

While the Hyperforce is chasing the Dark One Worm, Nova recommends him to train Chiro. Unfortunately, Galaxia is yet another planet that fell victim to the Worm's corruption, so the atmosphere is toxic and all of the inhabitants turned into monsters of one form or another— including Ah-Fei but he does a good job of hiding it at first. He agrees to train Chiro "if he will learn." It's the only hope the Hyperforce has, since they're stuck in a battle circuit and are not allowed to leave until Chiro defeats all of the monsters, which he eventually does. While Chiro is fighting his way up, Sprx, Gibson, and Otto look around for an exit and are led by a friendly monster to a disturbing room. Not only does this room contain many mounted monster heads, it also contains a scroll that reveals Ah-Fei's big secret: He's the one forcing these monsters to fight to the death for his amusement, all the while looking for a worthy opponent only to be disappointed every single time. Why? Because the Dark One Worm made him all Brainwashed and Crazy!

Naturally, Ah-Fei is Chiro's final opponent in the circuit. He makes quick work of the monkeys, but is unable to defeat Chiro, leaving him with no choice but to allow the Hyperforce, and all of the trapped monsters, to go free.

After his defeat, Ah-Fei returns to his senses.

Prometheus V (aka Slingshot)

Voiced by: Scott Menville

A powerful robot that the Hyperforce met in the "Corrupted Zone," a whole quadrant of planets corrupted by the Dark One Worm. The Super Robot brings the Team to said planet, where they, along with this much smaller robot, destroy a robot the size of the Super Robot. When the small robot doesn't speak to them, they follow him to a laboratory, where he seems to have disappeared. However, the Hyperforce does meet a disembodied brain in a tank; the remains of a scientist named Professor Maezono who tells them that this robot, called the Prometheus V, is malfunctioning and must be destroyed — and that the Super Robot is his prototype.

However, instead of trying to destroy the Super Robot, the Prometheus V enters his head and trades information with him, revealing the truth: Professor Maezono built these robots only to find the perfect mechanical body to plant his own consciousness into.

After that cat is let out of the bag, Maezono gets pissed off and unleashes a giant robot army on the Hyperforce and the Prometheus V, which he and the Super Robot fight off while the Monkey Team go to shut down the central computer in Maezono's laboratory. Unfortunately, Maezono manages to escape and Prometheus V goes after him.

Alliana

Voiced by: Tara Strong

A warrior who the Monkey Team received a distress call from on their way back to Shuggazoom after destroying the Dark One Worm. She tells them about the Varkon Commodore, who had destroyed her home world, along with many others all for the sake of some some sick, twisted game. She called on them because she needed their help to stop him from doing any further damage.

The Team agrees to help her with this, and the timing couldn't have been better, because his next target is Shuggazoom.
  • Action Girl: A professional warrior on her home planet.

Captain Shuggazoom

Voiced by: Bruce Campbell

While searching for Mandarin and Valina, the Hyperforce discovered an old man in a deep underground cavern wearing a helmet shaped like their emblem. After reviving him with The Sleep Cannon in reverse polarity, it's revealed that the old man is Captain Shuggazoom, previous defender of Shuggazoom City. He was friends with the Alchemist before he became what he is now.
  • Fish Out of Temporal Water: In the time of his sleep, the Alchemist turned into Skeleton King; the Hyperforce was established; Mandarin betrayed the team; the team went to 'sleep'; Chiro awakened them and so on.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: On top of that his hair looked like that of Chiro in hypermode.
  • My Greatest Failure: He deeply regrets abandoning his dear friend the Alchemist when he needed him the most.
  • Rip Van Winkle: He has been sleeping for decades due to Sleep Cannon he used to subdue the Dark One that had escaped from the Alchemist's portal as it malfunctioned. The tragic part is that he never could hold his promise to the Alchemist to come back in time.
  • Secret Identity: The wealthy Billionaire Playboy industrialist Clayton Carrington.

    Villains 

Skeleton King

Voiced by: Mark Hamill

The main antagonist of the series who resides in the Citadel of Bone, a gigantic living spaceship made entirely out of bone filled with nightmarish creatures. Skeleton King plots to rule the universe starting with the planet Shuggazoom.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: In Seasons 1 and 2 the Hyperforce don't know his overall goal.
  • In the Hood: His cape gets an addition after season 1.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Whenever he directly appears, things get serious.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: That whole, "plucked his eye out to turn it into a giant monster" bit.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He is the one who created the Robot Monkeys. Before he became Skeleton King, the Alchemist created the Robot Monkeys to protect the cosmos from his own evil.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Just about anything can come out of this guy's back of tricks.
  • Off with His Head!: Chiro ripped his body from his head as the Dark Worm left Shuggazoom and pulled Skeleton King with it.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: He refers to all life as a " tragic, pointless mistake." He's either this, or severely depressed.
    • After his revival, he announces he'll make Shuggazoom his tomb.
  • One-Winged Angel: Briefly after being tossed into the Formless ooze caldron on his ship. He's knocked out of it after a while.
  • Orcus on His Throne: In Season 1. Justified as at the time, he was spiritually linked to the Citadel of Bone and unable to leave it.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Interesting to note is that the Alchemist's right eye was already red before he was turned.
  • Shapeshifter Guilt Trip: In "In the Grip of Evil", he uses this against Nova by briefly transforming into the Alchemist with whom Nova had a Daddy's Girl relationship with.
  • Skull for a Head: More realistic after his rebirth.
  • Stalker Without A Crush: To Chiro. He had a room full of Chiro's stuff in the Citadel, but was only interested in his Power Primate and his role as an opponent in the "universal game of good vs evil."
  • Staying Alive: No matter what the Hyperforce do to him, he'll be back.
  • Was Once a Man: He once was the Alchemist, a kindly master of the elements of science and magic until he was corrupted by The Dark Ones, a race of trans-dimensional demons and became their most loyal servant.

Mandarin

Voiced by: James Hong

The sixth (and orange) monkey, who was the original leader of the Super Robot Monkey Team. He was banned from the monkey team and became its enemy. He joined forces with Skeleton King, only to be replaced with a younger formless ooze replica of himself.

His weapons as a member of the Monkey Team were an energy sword and shield.
  • Ambition Is Evil: He wanted to rule all of Shuggazoom, and that earned him a one-way ticket to a Face-Heel Turn (also to solitary confinement on a space prison).
  • Badass: In his first appearence, he disables the Super Robot, knocks out Chiro, and captures the Monkey Team in under a minute. Now if only he'd just dropped that damn Villain Ball...
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: The big to Sakko's little.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: It shrinks over time, but when he first shows up, they're huge.
  • Blood Knight: It's never really out-right stated he loves to fight, but his natural aggression and scorn for people who can't fight well or choose not to points to this.
  • Body Horror: He mutates after being swallowed by the Dark One Worm and living in its stomach for a few months, disfigured by acid and with a claw having grown where his arm had been severed.
  • Broken Pedestal: For the whole of the Monkey Team because of his betrayal, but probably the most for Otto, who used to be the closest to him.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation: He spends an undefined amount of time all alone inside the Dark One Worm. When he finally resurfaces in the plot, it's clear he's gone a little bonkers.
  • In the Back: Of Antuari's head.
  • Jerkass: Was said to be this even before his Face-Heel Turn and this is proven when it's shown how he crossed the Moral Event Horizon by torturing Nova while he was still considered a good guy. He even seemed to be this while the Robots Monkeys were just regular monkeys in the care of the Alchemist.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: See Cold-Blooded Torture above.
  • The Leader: Until his betrayal he was this for the Hyperforce.
  • Luckily My Shield Will Protect Me: Besides his laser blade, he had a shield.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Monkey Mind Scream.
  • Meaningful Name: Mandarin is the name of a type of orange. Doubles as a Mandarin is a type of monkey. Also triples because he became a subordinate/student of the Skeleton King and the name means "advisor to the king".
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: When the monkeys still lived with the Alchemist, he was the who caused the portal to the Dark Ones' dimension to malfunction. This enabled one of them to corrupt and turn the Alchemist into Skeleton King in the first place.
  • Not Quite Dead: After being eaten alive by the Dark One Worm he reappears an entire season later, though admittedly worse for the wear.
  • Pride: Defining character trait, second only (if that) to his ruthlessness.
  • Put on a Bus to Hell: Twice.
    • The first time is when he's replaced by his clone and is dragged away by two HUGE formelss, kicking and screaming in fear. We're never told what exactly happens to him, but there's more than enough implications.
    • Second time, the clone is eaten by the Dark One Worm. The expression he gives us before the fact makes it really clear that what's about to happen isn't going to be pleasant for him...
    • The Bus Came Back: He eventually emerged from the Dark One Worm.
  • Smug Snake: Treats everyone like they're beneath him; Chiro is inferior and the monkey robots are mere tools.
  • Swallowed Whole: By the Dark One Worm.
  • The Undead: Of the Revenant variety after the Dark One Worm incident.
  • We Can Rule Together: He initially attempts this with Chiro, with the expected results.
  • Would Hurt a Child: In the episode Night Of Fear, Mandarin turned Chiro from teenager to a helpless child without the Power Primate to defend himself. He takes sick pleasure in hunting him through the Super Robot before attempting the killing blow.
  • You Have Failed Me: The original is disposed of after he botches up a cloning operation of Chiro (which could also count as Death by Irony, as afterwords he's replaced by a clone of himself).

Valina, the Skull Sorceress

Voiced by: Hynden Walch

An evil and powerful sorceress loyal to the Skeleton King.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Valina was an evil bitch, but one can't help but feel sorry for her when she is killed without warning by the Skeleton King she adored.
  • Arc Villain: In Season Four between Skeleton King's defeat and revival.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: To her parents Ma and Pa Shinko after they steal Skeleton King's power.
  • Character Death: She's offed by the Skeleton King.
  • The Chosen One: A villainous example. The leaders of the Skeletal Circle and her parents, Ma and Pa Shinko chose her to accept Skeleton King's power.
  • Evil Makeover: Her current appearance is the result of receiving Skeleton King's power.
  • Fangirl: For Skeleton King. She was delighted to recieve his power.
  • Skunk Stripe: Has a red stripe in the middle of her head.
  • Spell My Name with an S: Valina/Valeena.
  • Technicolor Eyes: They're BRIGHT FREAKING PINK for crying out loud...
  • Virgin Sacrifice: Attempts to do this to Jinmay when we first meet her. Although nobody outright calls it this, there's only so many ways one can interpret her saying Jinmay's "purity" will make a good offering to the Dark One Worm...
  • Wicked Witch: A sorcereress in the image of the Skeleton King.

TV Monster/Skeleton King Droid

Voiced by: Mark Hamill

A black and bulky looking, yet powerful robot made to personally serve Skeleton King as his herald. He was later transformed into the powerful Skeleton King Droid as a result of having a piece of the Skeleton King's essence in him.
  • Staying Alive: This thing is Nigh Invulnerable even by robot standards. It survived explosion after explosion, getting attacked directly constantly, and getting impaled by a laser harpoon!
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Well in comparison to the gigantic Super Robot it certainly counts. It even destroyed a alien equivalent version of the Super Robot by going inside of it and blowing it up from the inside. All without receiving as much as a scratch!

Gyrus Krinkle

Voiced by: Jeffrey Combs

  • Fan Boy: Admires the Hyperforce.
  • I Reject Your Reality: He doesn't get that he's a villain why the Hyperforce dislike him.
  • Knight Templar: Joining the Hyperforce would mean he'd get to do good (he'd probably even say he doesn't belong in this folder), but the way he went about it is what cements him as a villain.

Dread Magician Nodnarb

The most powerful mage in the kingdom in the planet Tolomac 3. He is said to protect the kingdom from a dragon, but actually he is the dragon.

Morlath

Also known as the Mythic Lord of the Northern Ice, this gigantic frost demon was trapped in a cavern in the Sea of Ice outside Shuggazoom City until he encountered the Skeleton King, who offered to free him if he lent his power to freeze the city. Instead of freeing him however, the Skeleton king imprisoned Morlath into his sceptre and was able to use his power as a result.

A kind scientist who was able to merge science and magic in his projects.

  • Duality Motif: His right eye is red, the left one is a light-blue. It seems to indicate his ability to use both science and magic as well as his transformation into Skeleton King.

  • My God, What Have I Done?: When the portal to the Dark One's dimension malfunctions, the pathway opens and one demon escapes.
    What have I unleashed?!
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Surely his parents didn't name him "The Alchemist".
  • The Reveal: He is the Skeleton King, the creator of the Robot Monkeys and a close friend of Captain Shuggazoom. It's hinted at that he used to work alongside Professor Maezono and Dr. Takeuchi on the Prometheus Project.
