[[folder:Dr. [=McNinja=]]]
%%No spoilers outside of examples. The Dr.'s true first name, "Patrick", is covered in the list down below.
!Dr. [=McNinja=]
%%No spoilers outside of examples. The Dr.'s true first name, "Patrick", is covered in the list down below.
-> ''"I'm not any other doctor!!! I'm Doctor '''[=McNinja=]'''."''

Our hero. He has the skills of a doctor and the soul of a healer, but he won't hesitate to get violent with anyone who deserves it. Made of a subtle sprinkling of Insanity over a base of Awesome.
* AnimalNemesis: With a particular pterodactyl (or, rather, "birdosaurus") and the rest of its kind, who occasionally crop up to cause random problems.
%%* AwesomeMcCoolname
* BackFromTheDead: The Dr. once bled to death thanks to gunshots by Frans Rayner's minions. But after wrestling with TheGrimReaper, he forced himself back to life and stumbled back into his office with about enough blood left in his system for a kitten.
%%* {{Badass}}
* BadassBookworm: Well, he IS a doctor, after all.
** BadassLabcoat: Thanks to his mask, this is the only way to identify him from other ninja.
* BadLiar: In spite of being a ninja. It gets [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the AltText that he was [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/25p85/ trained for years]] in lying well.
* BerserkButton: REALLY hates [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/21p83/ Pteradactyls]].
* BullyingADragon: When he was a child, [[spoiler:he encountered a powerful ghost wizard. The ghost wizard offered to let him and his grandfather leave in peace. His grandfather accepted, knowing he was no match for a ghost wizard, but the future Dr. refused due to having concluded said wizard was a villain. The wizard was ultimately only defeated by his grandfather's HeroicSacrifice]].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Doctor [=McNinja=] is a vigilante, has no qualms about killing bad guys, and his office suffers gunfire and explosions frequently. But he's also a dedicated doctor, and can cure almost any normal or supernatural disease.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He casually lifts up and and throws a vending machine in the first issue. [[SerialEscalation It only gets more epic after that.]]
** He can punch ghosts by humming the ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'' theme.
* CombatMedic: Though, more often than not, Judy has to patch him up. At least once the dichotomy between healing and killing is brought up.
* ComplexityAddiction: His occasional scheme can get needlessly complicated and even downright ridiculous. This bites him when [[spoiler:he tries to stop the dinosaur scout from transmitting Earth's coordinates to his people]].
* {{Curse}}: [[spoiler:In the final arc, an extremely powerful ghost wizard puts the Dr. under a curse designed to make the universe itself reject him.]]
* DeadPersonImpersonation: [[spoiler:Pretends to be Dr. [=McLuchador=], who actually died in anonymity, to infiltrate Radical's gang]].
* DoesNotLikeMagic: Due to a bad experience with it ([[spoiler:his grandfather's death]]), he hates magic and ultimately seeks to figure out how it works and fits into the natural world.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Even his parents just tend to call him "my son". See NoNameGiven, below. [[spoiler:His name is ultimately revealed to be "Patrick".]]
* FaceYourFears: [[spoiler:The Negazone is a DarkWorld of the White House that confronts its victims with their fears. The Dr.'s lesser fears include never dating again and death. But the only one he actually dreads is the possibility that he might be an InappropriateRoleModel for Gordito, and he is forced to deal with this fear to escape.]]
* FanBoy: Of Batman. Yes, really.
* {{Fingore}}: Self-inflicted. When imprisoned deep within the sea, he tries to get people's help by tapping morse code with his finger. After a while, it starts bleeding.
* ForgotAboutHisPowers: He has trouble remembering how strong he is.
* HeroInsurance: Instantly pardoned and forgiven for any broken laws, provided he gets home to his office and says "Base!" before the cops get to him.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Not originally, but in the final arc, [[spoiler:few people are grateful to the Dr. for stopping King Radical from causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Quite the contrary, Sparklelord, the ghost wizard, and King Radical turn the entire universe against him.]]
* HighAltitudeInterrogation: When questioning Dr. Knickerbockers, he hosts him in a trailer with an open back, being pulled by an airplane.
* IllKillYou: The Doctor's response to King Radical murdering an innocent child for RevengeByProxy.
* InappropriateRoleModel: When the Doctor is confronted with his fears, the only one to hit a nerve is when he is told he is a bad role model for Gordito.
* InnerMonologue: Often. Doc has been known to argue with his inner voice.
--> (And lose.)\\
You hush.\\
* LuredIntoATrap: [[spoiler:King Radical banishes President Funkhouser to the Negazone, overthrows the US government, and crowns himself dictator. As part of his strategy to unseat Radical, Dr. [=McNinja=] attempts to mount a rescue of the former president, only to discover that King Radical was expecting this and had already moved her prison, using its former location as a trap]].
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Potentially subverted. An earlier comic where [=McNinja=] was allowed to ride a unicorn brought up the mythology that only virgins were allowed to touch the creatures, but whether or not this was in effect was left intentionally vague, as he was too uncomfortable with the subject to talk about it. This combined with the recent revelation that the doctor has only ever dated one person...well, it's definitely a possibility.
* McNinja: [[TropeNamers Trope Namer]]. He's Irish-American, and a ninja.
* NecessarilyEvil: [[spoiler:While infiltrating Radical's gang as Dr. [=McLuchador=], he does not enjoy the heist he is employed to go along with; Namely, ruining the owners of a pizza restaurant because they aren't radical enough for King Radical.]] He made up for it at the end after finally beating Radical and hiring the two for a city-wide pizza party.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: He tries to stop a BadFuture with an elaborate plan that fails, entirely due to his own actions. The people he meets in the future aren't happy with him about it.
* NoNameGiven: We know he has one, but he never uses it. A wizard is involved in some way. [[spoiler:When Dr. [=McNinja=] was a child, he angered a powerful ghost wizard. In order to protect his grandson from the wizard's terrible curse, his grandfather, John [=McNinja=] gave up the future doctor's true name as an offering to the PowersThatBe in exchange for protecting him. As a result, the ghost wizard was TakenForGranite and his name was erased from all of existence, leaving him as the only one to still remember it. If he ever tells anyone else his true name, the ghost wizard will be released. It is ultimately revealed to be "Patrick"]].
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist:
** One of the few justified examples in that [[spoiler:he was cloned multiple times in order to attain multiple doctorates. Then, all clones but one were re-merged,]] resulting in the doc we all know and love.
--->'''[=McNinja=]:''' I'm a doctor. I know science.
** [[spoiler: He's also a talented actor, (despite being a BadLiar) impersonating [=McLuchador=] well enough to have fooled everyone. The narrow areas Doc ''doesn't'' have expertise in are Computers and Agronomy / Botany, as Old [=McNinja=] never merged with him again]].
* PayEvilUntoEvil: After getting all the information he wants from Dr. Knickerbockers, he tosses him a parachute and casually kicks him out of an airplane, singing he doesn't feel bad because Knickerbockers is a bad guy.
* ScienceHero: While his usual method of solving problems is to punch or stab them, he makes use of his "doctorin'" skills to come up with cures for Paul Bunyan's Disease, ghost possession, the mummy's curse, and Franz Rayner's ninja drug.
* SummonBiggerFish: [[spoiler:When King Radical comes upon the verge of bringing about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, Doc concludes that Sparklelord and King Radical were correct when they said Sparkelord was the only one who can stop him, and the Dr. ends up summoning the other monster.]]
* SuperStrength: He can lift vending machines, punch enemies sky high, and shatter very thick metal. Apparently an ability he has from being a Doctor in addition to a ninja.
* SuperToughness: Manages to withstand being beaten and smashed by an angry gorilla for over an hour while unconscious.
* TemptingFate: [[spoiler:Dr. [=McNinja=] gloats about finally ruining King Radical's plans for good and how nothing bad will ever happen. Meanwhile, a ghost wizard busily casts a {{Curse}} designed to make his entire life to go wrong.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Gordito gives him two. The first is when Doc begins to focus on stopping King Radical to the exclusion of treating injured and sick people. The second is on Sean's behalf in the BadFuture centered around how Sean performed several extremely difficult actions to enable Doc's plan, only for Doc to ruin everything with his inability to not punch an astronaut.
* WhereDidWeGoWrong: On the receiving end of this from his parents. His mother became a ninja through training, and thus did not learn how to raise a ninja child. His father came from a long line of ninjas and was never taught how for traditional reasons. They tried to inspire him using Batman. But instead of becoming a proper, ruthless, amoral mercenary, their son used his ninja skills for vigilantism and chose medicine as his main career.


!Gordito Delgado
-> ''"These are no coward's weapons."''

The effing badass kid: Doc's ward and protégé. His father was a circus performer with a incredible finishing routine -- until it went wrong.
* ABoyAndHisX: A boy and his velociraptor named Yoshi.
* BadassMustache: Grew it with sheer force of will.
* BilingualBonus: His name means "Little Fattie" in Spanish. Kind of essential to understanding the joke in [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/4p12 this comic.]]
** With his last name, it doubles as a ShoutOut - [[FatboySlim Delgado means 'Slim'.]]
%%* {{Determinator}}
* FutureBadass: Not that he's not badass in the present, but in the future he's an even ''more'' badass resistance leader.
* TheGunslinger: Provides the page image.
* HeIsAllGrownUp: Doc's reaction to seeing Future!Gordito is "You got '''handsome'''."
* KidSidekick: The Doc wants to think of him as the Robin to his Franchise/{{Batman}}, save for the fact that Gordito is not a CheerfulChild.
* WouldHitAGirl:
** Gordito enters school completely hated by all the other students. At one point, a girl slams him with her locker, apparently in annoyance that he's in her way since their lockers are right next to each other. He responds by giving her a black eye.
** When Hortense tries to stop Dr. [=McNinja=] from ending King Radical's villainous scheme, Gordito punches her in the face. And then does it again, just because he could. And then again.
%%* YoungGun


!Judy the Gorilla
-> ''"Ook ugh." [[labelnote:translation]]"The power of ciprofloxacin hydrochloride '''compells''' you."[[/labelnote]]''

Doc's receptionist and occasional muscle. She works for the doctor because his life is very exciting and also because she is a professional.
* {{Badass}}: With a rocket launcher, she is actually more dangerous than ''Mongo''.
* BadassDriver: Doc trusts her to jump an explosion with him hanging from the back of the vehicle. Earlier, when she went to fetch a new car and discovered herself in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, the logical course of action was to get to the car so she could drive through the middle of the horde, arriving back at the office with only four zombies clinging to the roof.
** A story showing how they met shows that she can sign and drive at the same time.
* BerserkButton: Her hot dogs were clearly marked, but unfortunately, Yoshi can't read...
* ConsummateProfessional: According to the Doc. Goes back to work bulldozing the remains of their bombed office with little more than a grunt of acknowledgement after getting choked out by Agent Bearclaw. [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/27p82/ In response to]] the chapter title asking "Why a gorilla?"
--> '''Doc''': Because she's a ''professional'', and ''she behaves like one''!
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Possibly the real reason for why a gorilla.
* KindheartedCatLover: Judy later gets a cat (though the Doc decides to name him "Ice Cream Cake")
* NaughtyByNight: A mild example - During a story arc in which Doc is away from his office for an extended period, Judy is briefly shown to be enjoying a round of Bacarat with a number of other well-to-do gorrillas in a scene taken right out of ''Film/DrNo''.
* PhraseCatcher: Why is the gorilla a receptionist? "Because she is a professional and she behaves like one!"
* ShoutOut: to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koko_(gorilla) Koko]], a female gorilla who can use sign language and likes cats.


!Yoshi the Raptor
-> ''"Rrraaachhh!"''

A wild velociraptor formerly owned by a gang of Mexican paleontologist banditos (don't ask); currently Gordito's mount and pet. Not too smart but makes up for it with teeth.
* ABoyAndHisX: His raptor, to be precise.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: In the Bad Future, saving Doc and Sean.]]
%%* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs
* FutureBadass: In the BadFuture his intelligence is enhanced, making him [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/21p81/ much more effective]]
* HorseOfADifferentColor: Most people wouldn't consider a raptor to be a valid steed.
* RaptorAttack: He has razor sharp claws and can run fast enough to keep up with motorcycles.
* YouNoTakeCandle: The future dinosaur invaders tried to uplift living dinosaurs on Earth. It worked mostly, but their grasp of language is limited.


!Dan [=McNinja=]
-> ''"We are on Eastern Pain Time, and it is Dan O'Clock."''

Doc's dad. Defeated Frans Rayner to become head of the American guild of ninjas in the 80's. His mustache gives him instant respect and authority, which is why he cut a hole in his ninja mask so it would always be on display.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Particularly when around Benjamin Franklin II.
* BadassGrandpa: He's old enough for his son to have a (if surrogate) son of his own, and is just as skilled a ninja as Doc is.
* BadassMustache: When it was revealed by his mask getting torn in a fight, he instantly became leader of the Ninja Guild.
* BoisterousBruiser: When fighting pirates as he loves riling them up.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Like his son. Believes that setting yourself on fire to avoid capture is so effective it overrides the obvious drawbacks. "Ninjas can't catch you if you are on fire."
* CrazyPrepared: When he learns that the McNinja family needs to fight a ghost wizard, he sets them on a training regimen to be able to counter its three spells - except there are seven ghost wizards in the world who all know three different spells, so he trains them to counter 21 spells. Eventually, it [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/10p40/ gets a little weird.]] [[SubvertedTrope Hilariously subverted]] when it turns out the one spell he didn't train his group to counter [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/11p26/ is the one the ghost wizard uses to beat Dan.]]
* HollywoodHacking: Believes this is the only way to interact with computers. He has no idea how to do this, unlike Sean, so he throws old routers and bashes keyboards into them. It predictably does not work.
-->'''Dan:''' ''HACK IT''.\\
'''Sean:''' But I--\\
'''Dan:''' ''HACK THAT ROBOT''.\\
'''AltText:''' USE...THE ''NET''.
* ManOnFire: Can sustain extended/indeterminate periods while being fully aflame. [[spoiler:That his ninja gi is fire resistant certainly helps]].
* McNinja: Also an Irish-American ninja.
* PapaWolf: His response to a pirate claiming to have kidnapped his son is... pretty violent.
* ScrewYourself: Apparently a believer in this.
-->'''Dan:''' Oh god, he's probably making out with [his clone] right now. That's what they're doing.\\
'''Mitzi:''' ...what makes you think that?\\
'''Dan:''' Because it's what any of us would do! Try to keep up!
* TestosteronePoisoning: On occasion. His mustache ''alone'' convinced an entire clan of ninjas that he should be their leader. Also there's the point of ''setting yourself on fire'' to escape capture.


!Mitzi [=McNinja=]
-> ''"Care to race to see who can sink the boat first?"''

Doc's mom. Known for her two specialties: Pickled beets and precisely aimed demolitions.
* ActionMom: A mother of two who is probably the best fighter in the series. She can defeat Doc with ease.
** ActionGirl: She wasn't raised as a ninja, and we don't know how old she was when she started training. Considering all the badassery that the [=McNinjas=] regularly pull off, imagine how tough she had to be to keep pace with ninjas who were primed for it since childhood.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: She would kill her children out of love, as an example. Probably RuleOfFunny at work, though.
* LethalChef: An odd example, in that she occasionally poisons her cooking in order to train her family to be wary of poison. Then again, her pickled beets are pretty bad in and of themselves -- her family chokes them down anyway out of fear or respect.
* MamaBear: She will do anything to protect her children, including killing them if they are facing a FateWorseThanDeath.
* McNinja: Though her nationality is never stated, her first name is German.
* MercyKill: Is willing to murder Sean to keep him from being used as a ghost wizard's flesh suit. In a lesser example, when Dan is bespelled to see everything as knives she knocks him out to keep his mind from breaking at trying to comprehend ''everything'' being knives.
* [[SaiGuy Sai Gal]]: Her WeaponOfChoice.
* TeamMom: To Doc (obviously) and Gordito. She seems to see the latter as part of her family, or at least very close.


!Sean "Dark Smoke Puncher" [=McNinja=]
-> ''"What's that, an eldritch horror? '''Concussive blast!'''"''

Doc's younger brother. Torn between his parents' desire for him to be a good ninja, his own geeky tendencies, and his longing for popularity, resulting in a use of over-the-top "hip" slang. Wearing a ninja mask.
* BadassBookworm: Being a ninja who can build robots has got to make you one of these.
* {{Expy}}: Intentionally makes himself one of [[spoiler:Comicbook/DoctorStrange in the "Futures Trading" timeline, down to the BadassCape]].
* FutureBadass: Badass enough to make the dinosaur army come running to fight him.
* GadgeteerGenius: For instance: he's capable of designing a missile from scratch and hacking into NASA's mission control to launch it given less than a day's notice. What's more, the family routinely expects that from him.
* LegacyCharacter: [[spoiler: In the BadFuture, he calls himself Dr. [=McNinja=]. Though he specifies that it isn't because of his brother, it's just part of his schtick.]]
* MagicFromTechnology: The essence of his "technomagic".
* McNinja: Like his brother, he's an Irish-American ninja.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Plays up his stereotypical teen traits to keep his parents from realizing how similar he is to the Doc, considering how vocal they are about how he is a disappointment.
* TookALevelInBadass: In "Futures Trading".
* TotallyRadical: It's a cover.


[[folder:Old [=McNinja=]]]
!Old [=McNinja=]
-> ''"I'm a farmer."''

A clone of the Doc. He's a farmer.
* AlternateSelf: Dr. [=McNinja=] wanted to learn it all in order to become an OmnidisciplinaryScientist like Batman. His teacher provided him with a project to create clones that learn and eventually reintegrate into the original. Thanks to arriving late and a time traveller’s careless meddling, the one assigned to study farming didn't and ended up hiding himself away on a farm. [[spoiler: Franz Rayner abducts him as bait against his original, but together they manage to escape. Old ultimately joins King Radical, and turns on his original.]]
* CloneDegeneration: [[spoiler:Older cloning technology was flawed and resulted in clones not lasting very long. The newer technology is greatly improved, but Old [=McNinja=] has already lived longer than he was meant to, and his mind is falling apart as a result.]]
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: [[spoiler:Why Rayner cloned him.]]
* ExpendableClone: Subverted; when the McNinja family hesitates to rescue him, Doc argues that Old is just as much their son as he is, and when [[spoiler:Old joins Radical]] his right as a clone to make that decision is never brought up. Long story short, since he couldn't ever join back up with Doc, Old is officially his own person.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:He joins King Radical and turns against his original. Not that he sees it that way. He thinks that Dr. [=McNinja=] is the bad guy for opposing Radical, since Radical is making the city a cooler place. Never mind how Radical has little regard for the consequences of his reckless actions or how many people they hurt. As he increasingly suffers from CloneDegeneration, he comes to resent his AlternateSelf and decides to kill him.]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:Old starts realizing that he's working for the bad guy after King Radical uses a giant robot to kill quite a lot of people. But after some thought (and after seeing his crush supports the plan), he decides to continue supporting it.]]
* HopelessSuitor: He retains Dr. [=McNinja=]'s former crush on Hortense and works as her partner for this reason. Even though he knows she will never love him back due to whatever happened between her and the Dr.
* IgnoredEpiphany: [[spoiler:He briefly feels bad about helping King Radical when his boss enacts a plan that will kill billions of people, but is swayed back by [[FemmeFatale Hortense]].]]
* IllKillYou: Along with every major arc villains, he wants to kill the Doctor, see CloneDegeneration for why.
* IrrationalHatred: [[spoiler:Towards his original, who he blames for everything wrong with his life. He eventually decides to kill him.]]
* PunnyName: Old [=McDonald=] had a farm, EE-I-EE-I-O!
* {{Revenge}}: Due to his [[spoiler:increasing insanity and his resentment towards his original for continuing to live a life that was once his, he decides to kill him]].
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: [[spoiler:Dr. [=McNinja=] accuses Old of working for King Radical because he is now together with Hortense. Old says they're not, but both of them are clearly quite flustered by the accusation. He also reacts awkwardly when Hortense muses on the losers of their world being replaced with hunks, and repeatedly demonstrates that he has ''some'' romantic inclinations towards her.]]
** Doc reveals that because Old was cloned from him before he broke up with Hortense, he never had a chance to get over her like regular Doc did.
* SoProudOfYou: His parents are very happy there is a version of the Dr. that isn't a Dr. and has expertly used his ninja skills for things other than vigilantism.
* StealthExpert: Unlike the doctor, he spent most of his life hiding, meaning he's much better at what he does on that front.
* WouldHurtAChild: He was prepared to ''kill'' [[spoiler:Gordito to fulfill King Radical's plans. Hortense of all people had to be the one to hold him back.]]

[[folder:John [=McNinja=]]]
!John [=McNinja=]
-->''"Sometimes people need to get killed."''

Dr. [=McNinja's=] grandfather, Dan's father. Retired, has a massive beard.
* AntiHero: As a reminder: the [=McNinjas=] are ''ninjas'', meaning mercenaries for hire. He's perfectly happy to accept an assassination contract on some guy just because that guy's sister wants his inheritance, and justifies it as merely providing a service and shifting all the blame to the woman for taking out the contract in the first place.
* BadassBeard: Unlike his son's moustache, he has a full-grown beard that's more than a foot long. He got the idea to cut his mask and let it hang out from Dan, though.
* BadassGrandpa: Doc's grandfather, an old man whose first appearance is marked by Mitzi and Dan (both highly dangerous ninjas in their own right) going on full alert. He subsequently managed to escape being blown up with a rocket launcher.
* CannibalismSuperpower: He got his powers by eating [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Spellcasting Pig King Overlord pork chops]]
* FightMagnet: He's made quite a few enemies. When he comes to visit the kids, they go on alert not because they're worried about him, but because they know he'll be dragging along ''someone'' who wants to kill him.
* HeroicRROD: All of his more powerful spells cause physical damage. [[spoiler: A particularly strong one ends up giving him a heart attack.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: He casts an extremely powerful spell [[spoiler: to save his grandson from a ghost wizard. The result leaves him completely drained and apparently kills him.]]
* KungFuWizard: Turns out, he's a spellcaster.
* PostHumousCharacter: In the present, he is considered to be dead, though [[UncertainDoom Dan McNinja says he will never know this for sure]]. He does show up in an arc set in the past.
* PsychicNosebleed: He lacks proper training and casting any spell with power strains his body, which can result in his eyes bleeding. He can still perform cantrips (minor spells) all he wants though.
* RetiredBadass: To the point of deliberately letting people know where he is on occasion in order to keep them from searching him out.
* UncertainDoom: In ''First Generation Ninja American'', he apparently dies due to overuse of magic, and his body is left behind deep underground. But in ''Army of One'', Dan says he will never know this for sure.
* UnskilledButStrong: He has very powerful magic, but lacks proper wizard training.


!Donald [=McBonald=]
-->''“Yes... Yes... I'm lovin' it.”''

The first villain to be introduced in the comic, guilty of defaming Dr. [=McNinja's=] name in a new burger promotion. Appears later in "There is a Raptor in my Office" and later in "AWOL MD"
* AntiVillain: In his eyes at least. All he did was sell burgers that were popular and happened to share Dr. [=McNinja=]'s name, and while he admits he would have legally torn the good doctor to shreds if he objected in court, he thinks that the events of the first chapter were a gross overreaction.
* BurgerFool: As might be expected from a Ronald [=McDonald=] CaptainErsatz, he owns the [=McBonald=] restaurant chain.
* CaptainErsatz: Originally ''was'' Ronald [=McDonald=], but his name was quietly changed to Donald [=McBonald=] years later.
* EnemyMime: Displays the ability to cause the things he mimes to exist in his second appearance.
* EnemyMine: Forced to work with the doctor to apprehend Jetpack Man in order to preserve profit.
* FeedItABomb: Uses his EnemyMime powers to force feed Doc a bomb...maybe. It's not clear whether he was bluffing about his ability to mime something so complicated, or if he ''did'' but lost his concentration due to Doc psyching him out.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: His burgers somehow induce trances in those who eat them. Normally, this improves business, but [[spoiler:when King Radical, a VillainWithGoodPublicity, presumably dies in a space shuttle financed by [=McBonald=]'s food, this trance causes them to become unreasonable, turn on Bonald, and demand refunds, leaving him ruined]].
* MechaMooks: Robots fight for him because everyone else has too much dignity to work at [=McBonald's=].
* MonsterClown: His appearance years later in color only cements this.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Shortly after the Dr. says he's back to being a joke, [[spoiler:[=McBonald=] stabs him through with a mime sword]].
* PunchClockVillain: Is just trying to make money. Every chapter where he was the antagonist he was on the defensive from the Doc.
* {{Retcon}}: Was originally Ronald [=McDonald=], but Hastings changed it to pre-emptively avoid a lawsuit.
* {{Revenge}}: In the final arc, he goes after the Dr. for revenge due to the Dr. inadvertently ruining him.
* VillainHasAPoint: [=McBonald=] eventually comes to the realization that the Dr. sees him as one of his villains, which he considers hilarious. While [=McBonald=] is not the most ethical business man, he points out to the Dr. that all he did was sell some novelty burgers that coincidentally shared his name, and the Dr. responded by knocking out a restaurant full of customers, destroying his robots, and assaulting him. The Dr. admits he has a point.
* YourMimeMakesItReal: Donald is a mime with this ability. The hero defeats him with a pantomime of an invisible rocket launcher, while King Radical simply decks him while yelling "I don't believe in mimes!" [[spoiler:Doc eventually figures out that the magic requires the practitioner to use ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve, and prevents [=McBonald=] from using it by undermining his confidence.]]


!Frans Rayner
-->''“You are just the baby school, and I’m the Big League Chew. Why do you try?”''
[[caption-width-right:150:Click [[labelnote:here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtrayneraoo_6847.png[[/labelnote]] to see him later in the comic.]]

Became the bitter enemy to the [=McNinja=] family after Dan humiliated him. Did a series of action films in which he carved a swath through ninjakind with the aid of copious amounts of The Law of ConservationOfNinjitsu and bloodshed.
* TheAhnold: Hastings decided that putting on his accent phonetically in the text looked too ridiculous, asking the reader in the AltText to imagine the accent.
* AwesomeButImpractical: [[spoiler:His laser eye. Since it has no power supply of its own, it [[CastFromHitPoints drains his physical energy]] when he fires it.]]
* AxCrazy: He kills almost impulsively. Even when filming advertisements.
* BackFromTheDead: Dr. [=McNinja=] throws him off a cliff over jagged rocks. Death tries to claim him, but Frans Rayner manages to use his mastery over his body to stay alive after he should have been killed.
** NeverFoundTheBody: The Doctor tosses him off a cliff over jagged rocks. The Police later try to inform the Doc that they never found Rayner's body, though he doesn't learn this until later due to not bothering to take the calls.
* BadassBeard: His neckbeard, while normally the total opposite of this trope, is able to block hits.
* BigBad: In the D.A.R.E. story arc [[spoiler:and in the Army of One arc]].
* TheBrute: In later appearances.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He is so well trained that he can rearrange his body's organs and vital areas.
* CriticalResearchFailure: InUniverse. He plans to become president by killing the president. When Gordito tells him that's not how it works, he answers that by that point he'll be so popular nobody will care. What's more, at the end of the arc, Dr. [=McNinja=] points out he's an immigrant, not a natural-born American citizen, and thus not eligible for the presidency to ''start'' with.
* {{Engrish}}: "You are the baby school, and I am the Big League Chew."
* EyeBeam: After his first defeat [[spoiler: he had one installed to replace a missing eye. It uses his own body's calorie reserve as an energy source though, so using it once renders him incapable of fighting.]]
* KarmaHoudini: He wiped out almost every single American ninja and profited from the resulting movies. While that could arguably qualify as KickTheSonOfABitch, he also spreads a ninja drug, resulting in widespread violence, and makes future plans to kill the president. He does get some pretty serious injuries, but he is never arrested and his movie career remains intact, much to Dan's frustration. Although he lost a lot of money and fame to the point he is doing [=McBonald=] commercials and when thing goes bad he becomes a drifter. Needless to say he wants the Doctor dead after that.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: He wiped out the American ninjas. While they were amoral assassins for hire, he only did it because he was angry at them for refusing to aid his plans to takeover the US and to make movies.
* PresidentEvil: Something he would really like to be someday. [[spoiler:He acquires the position of Vice President after King Radical overthrows the US government and Ron Wizard dies]].
* {{Revenge}}: In the final arc, he goes after the Dr. for revenge due to the Dr. inadvertently ruining his business partner, [=McBonald=].
* VillainDecay: Lampshaded and exaggerated. By now Dr. [=McNinja=] has fought him, and defeated him, so often that he is no longer considered a threat at all.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Starts out as one. When his plans to take over the US by becoming leader of the American Ninjas failed, he launched a crusade to exterminate them and made this into a series of films. Due to Ninjas being ruthless amoral assassins for hire, they were little missed, and this won him a great deal of good publicity.


-->''“Mongo '''hates fish'''.”''

Genetically constructed "Uber-ninja" who assists Frans Rayner. Kind of dumb. Wields chainsaw nunchucks in his first appearance.
* ChainsawGood: He uses chainsaw nunchucks in his first appearance.
* DumbMuscle: Capable of carrying two grown men in one hand, but has the mind of a toddler.
%%* TheJuggernaut
* MegatonPunch: After his VillainDecay, [=McNinja=] can punch him to the skies without breaking a sweat.
* PsychopathicManChild: Rayner calls him off by offering him Happy Meal toys.
* TechnicalPacifist: [[spoiler: Refuses to kill in his second appearance, due to the death of a small child he became friends with. However, this does not stop him from delivering Dr. [=McNinja=] to Rayner's hands for him to kill [=McNinja=] himself.]]
* VillainDecay: Hits this just as hard as Rayner.


!Dr. Knickerbockers
-->''“Cutting open your face and experimenting on your brain.. '''Hehe!!''' It sounds so much worse than it actually feels.”''

Extremely short neurogenetipharmocologist in the employ of Frans Rayner. Developed the ninja drug responsible for the events of the DARE arc. Somewhat creepy.
%%* DepravedDwarf
* EvilLaughter: "''Ee''heeheehee!"
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He specializes in drugs that affect neurology (such as the drug ninjas), but he's dabbled with cloning as well.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Based on a series of [[NightmareFuel recurring nightmares]] Kent the inker experienced and in his tenure, he refused to ink any page with him in it, which had Hastings do it instead. It is poor.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Knickerbockers willingly gives up information to Doc after Doc interrogates him by holding him in an open shipping container that is being carried by an aircraft. When Doc mentions how easily he gave up, Knickerbockers calmly states that Doc's threats are scarier than any threats his employers could make to keep Knickerbockers quiet.


-->''“I have accomplished so much during my never ending life...”''

The real thing. His immortality has enabled him to master every technology and amass the world's greatest minds and talents in his secret moon base, but he is getting bored.
* ActuallyADoombot: He has Drac-bots to impersonate him.
* AffablyEvil: Sure, he's willing to kill people or damn their souls, but he's pretty friendly and polite about it. [[spoiler:Also, he's perfectly willing to help people [[YouDidntAsk if they just ask for it]], provided it doesn't interfere with his plans.]]
* ArtShift: [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/11p34/ One strip]] he appears in is ''animated'', appearing to be a normal comic until suddenly he descends from the ceiling. Since this is the only time such a thing has been done, it's unexpected and pretty effective.
* BigBad: Of ''Punch Dracula''.
* TheCavalry: In [[spoiler:"Futures Trading"]].
* ClassicalMovieVampire: thank God for public domain.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: He has a collection of notable historical figures who live on his moon base, including [[HistoricalInJoke "The Real"]] Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson. To his dismay, [[spoiler:all of them save Paul [=McCartney=] are killed by the result of Sparklelord destroying a time portal]].
* EvilPlan: He wants to know what exists as an afterlife and does evil things to find out.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:After returning to Earth, he murders an entire plane, sucking out their blood.]]
* MonsterLord: He's not called '''''DRACULA!'' KING OF ALL VAMPIRES!''' for nothing.
* {{Necromancer}}: He has the power to bind and enslave the dead with his magics.
* PaintingTheMedium: Whenever he's introduced, he is called '''''DRACULA!'' KING OF ALL VAMPIRES!'''
* PublicDomainCharacter: Lampshaded in the AltText.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He has taken full advantage of his vampiric immortality to explore every branch of art and science. Among his accomplishments are the invention of a teleporter, an incredibly powerful moon laser, and the cure for cancer. Though in typical ReedRichardsIsUseless fashion, he withholds it from humanity at least partially for laughs.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Dracula is a classic vampire who rarely show fear, so when he orders people to run when he sees Sparklelord it's kind of telling how things are bad.
* {{Revenge}}: In the final arc, he goes after the Dr. due to his actions inadvertently resulting in the destruction of his moon base.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: [[spoiler:He assumes the form of a large dog after wiping out the passengers and crew of a plane he boarded.]]
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: It's not that he doesn't, he's just done so much awesome stuff that now he's bored and getting curious about what might lie on the other side of death.
* XanatosGambit: A variation on the traditional trope [[spoiler: in that he's curious about what happens after death, but not willing to die yet himself, so he plans to kill and blackmail (in that order) the only person he believes is capable of actually dying, finding out what happens, and coming BACK to tell him, the good Doctor.]] If it works, wonderful; goal achieved. If it doesn't, no big loss. There are others like him and he won't have to find him because they'll come to him.
* YouNeverAsked: The reason he didn't intervene in the [[spoiler: BadFuture where dinosaurs took over the Earth was because no one asked him to help.]]
-->'''Dracula:''' They usually don't like the laser.


-> ''"Hehe, classic Hortense."''

The doctor's ex-girlfriend from college. Now works as a mercenary of some sort.
* BraidsOfAction: All her hair is tied up in a single long braid wrapped around her head.
* DarkActionGirl: She's a tough fighter with no qualms about killing.
* FoeRomanceSubtext: With Doc.
* GroinKick: Gives one to Gordito.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Doc used to like her, and Old still does.
* ShipSinking: [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/26p63/ Pretty finally.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: She doesn't hold back against Gordito (and neither does he). Though she ''does'' ultimately prevent Old from killing him.


[[folder:King Radical]]
!President King Radical (formerly Sir Sicknasty of Spades)
[[caption-width-right:300:[[labelnote:During The End: Part 1 (SPOILERS)]][[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2015_08_02_31p01.jpg]][[/labelnote]]]]
-> ''"Dude."''

The most radical man in the radical land. Conducts amoral dealings to improve Cumberland and make it more radical. Antagonizes Doc for fun.
* ArchEnemy: To Dr [=McNinja=].
* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:His primary motivation is, in fact, to better Cumberland and save his home universe by merging them together. However, his plan for doing so would eventually kill millions of people. He is at least, making sure that the biggest jerks on the planet are the first to die, with the more radical native residents being spared, but eventually, even innocent boring people are killed as well.]]
* AmbiguouslyEvil: He's almost certainly up to ''something'', and he's done some pretty questionable things like blowing up Doc's office for refusing to treat one of his henchmen and [[spoiler:murdering a version of Chuck Goodrich]], but he's also a largely benevolent force, using his mafia to genuinely improve the quality of life in Cumberland.
** The ambiguity is pretty much dropped after it's clear that Radical do things only for his own goals and his betterment of Cumberland is basically a scheme to turn it in a place where only the radicals can survive.
* AndYourLittleDogToo: In the BadFuture, he would love to kill some dinosaurs. Even "Their racist little children."
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: In the Radical Lands, new kings are chosen by the [[GeniusLoci lands themselves]], and are marked with the tattoo "Most Rad." on their fingers, declaring them literally the most Radical person in the world.
* BadassBeard: As badass as everything else about him, he sports a well-trimmed grey beard.
* BadassNormal: He's got no enhanced durability or magic and rarely demonstrates his fighting skills. He mostly relies on weapons-grade levels of charisma, being from a world where AwesomenessIsAForce and a willingness to exploit his followers to his best advantage.
* BadBoss: He outright admits he doesn't like anyone who works for him, punches someone who brings him bad news and his response to accidentally killing several of his scientists is saying "well farts." In fact, [[spoiler:his army of "common men" were specifically hired because they are the worst, lamest people Radical can find, and thus the first who will be shoved out of existence when King Radical summons his people from the Radical Lands]].
* BatmanGambit: On himself in the BadFuture. He knows the Ultimate Diplomat has an almost supernatural ability to convince people to get along, so he keeps himself underground and away from the Diplomat's speech that ends the human-dinosaur war. He does so to retain enough of his hatred for dinosaurs that he can counter the Diplomat's influence on the Doc and ensure that Doc prevents the dinosaur invasion.
* BerserkButton:
** Thanks to Sparklelord, he hates rainbows.
** [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/23p34/ Don't confuse him for the Burger King]]. On the other hand, this prompted a rather nifty costume upgrade, complete with full-length purple cloak and sash.
* BigBad: Of many arcs and the overall story.
* BigWhat: [[spoiler:When he learns that his favourite minion, Dr. [=McLuchador=], was actually his ArchEnemy, Dr. [=McNinja=] in disguise.]]
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: All he really cares about is what makes the world a more or less radical place to live.
* CatchPhrase: "Radical."
* CharmPerson: Not clear how he does it or if magic is involved, but most of the population gives him their full support whether he praises a sandwich for it's taste or [[spoiler:blows up U.S congress]]. His charisma is that strong.
* DoubleEntendre: He's radical in all senses of the word.
* EngineeredHeroics: [[spoiler:As part of a GambitRoulette to depose President Funkhouser. He and the Vice President arrange an incident to endanger the president. He then leaps out of the Nega Zone to fake coming out of the time stream, seemingly intervening at the last moment like a standard Chuck Goodrich, come back to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong. As a result, this helps attract her attention when picking out a new Vice President when she discovers the old one's treachery]].
* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:He's a version of Chuck Goodrich from an alternate universe (the Radical Lands), and unlike the standard Chucks of the Doctor's universe, he has no problem whatsoever with killing innocent but boring people.]]
* ExactWords: In the BadFuture he responds to Doc asking if they will be enemies in the past with "We don't have to be." which Doc takes as a yes. [[spoiler: Radical's plan involves killing off the awful and boring people of this world to substitute them for the awesome people of his homeland. The Doc and his friends and family would survive this purge and Radical tries to convince him to just let it happen.]]
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: In the BadFuture he would gladly kill every dinosaur, but acknowledges this will simply never happen. Even his hatred is denied to him, since he knows the Ultimate Diplomat will convince him to let it go.
* FallenHero: Not that he [[AmbiguouslyEvil seems all that villainous]], but he's certainly the major antagonist, and he pays little regard for the consequences of his actions or who they hurt. Back in Radical Land he was their king and, by virtue of AsskickingEqualsAuthority, their greatest hero. But being trapped in a far lamer dimension has made him depressed, and it has even made him forget things about the Radical Lands, prompting him to "fix" his current world by ''any means necessary''. Taken a step further in the ''All The King's Dirtbikes and All The King's Men'' arc, where it's revealed that [[spoiler: he's actually an alternate universe version of Chuck Goodrich.]]
* FantasticRacism:
** Back when he was [[spoiler: still Sir Sicknasty,]] Radical was [[spoiler: somewhat racist against horses, believing them unfit for the Radical Throne. Needless to say, this didn't exactly ease Sparklelord's anger over not being picked as king]].
** In one timeline where dinosaurs take over, he develops a deep hatred for their kind due to their having made his plans impossible and being angry at their own racism.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He gives jobs to the worst, lamest people he can find, gives children skating parks, and maintains a friendly tone with those he meets. Then the bodies start piling up and his disgust for his employees shows up as he unveils his plans to create a SocialDarwinism society were only the radical can live. He is also willing to kill kids just to hurt the doctor.
* FishOutOfWater: When he first enters Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world, it takes him a bit of time to figure out that the animals and trees of this realm cannot talk. He is also shocked at how plain the river tastes, since the rivers back home are made from the finest Mountain Dew. But most of all, he misses the cool people of his homeland. Compared to the Radical Lands, Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world feels lifeless.
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: When he [[spoiler:poses as a standard version of Chuck Goodrich and becomes mayor of Cumberland]], he is almost universally adored to the extent that the city's highschoolers have obtained a 100% graduation rate in honor of him. A near hundred percent rating is soon after displayed in the news when he [[spoiler:overthrows the president and destroys Congress]].
* {{Hypocrite}}: He has a marked hatred of racists and Ron claims racism isn't radical at all. Even so, Radical would love to commit genocide on the dinosaur and states Sparklelord couldn't possibly be king because he is a horse.
* IgnoredEpiphany: [[spoiler:King Radical's plans revolve around replacing boring people of Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world with the awesome people of his home, starting off with his own minions, who are the worst people Radical can find, and thus the first who will die as a result of his plans. When King Radical's top minion, Herschel, is killed, King Radical actually starts showing signs of remorse. But one page later, he sees his old friend, Steven the lycanthropic centaur and excitedly remarks how great this is because Steven is ''much'' more awesome than Herschel ever was.]]
* InvincibleVillain: Even when Doc stops his plans, he quickly recovers and generally comes back stronger than ever. Doc frees a Hulk expy from his debt? He takes control of the entire city. Doc infiltrates his gang? He [[ItMakesSenseInContext turns the city into a giant robot]]. Doc stops the robot? ''He comes President of the United States''. Doc escapes prison and punches him one? He's a NASA astronaut that's protected by {{Eldritch Abomination}}s. The closest Doc has ever gotten to stopping him permanently was reliant on an OmnicidalManiac, Sparklelord, who would have destroyed the Dr.'s world too. King Radical even rubs it in by saying that Doc will never be able to defeat him. [[spoiler:The Dr. ultimately concludes that he was right and is forced to resummon Sparkelord when King Radical enacts a plan that will bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.]]
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: He waits until ''after'' the Dr. punches him to explain his EvilPlan, since [[spoiler:he is now an astronaut, causing the Dr.'s attack to trigger the wrath of a Nasaghast]].
* KickTheDog:
** When his BigEntrance kills several innocent scientists in his employ (much to [=McNinja's=] horror), the most sympathy he can muster is an annoyed "Farts!".
** His treatment of the Friend Brothers, whom he taught to make radical pizza, but turned out to not be radical ''enough'' for his tastes. So he ordered 100 incredibly expensive pizzas, then had "[=McLuchador=]" hijack them so he didn't have to pay, instantly bankrupting them (and leaving job applications for Pizza Hut and Papa Johns just to rub salt in the wound). He claims they'll be fine if they rob a bank or something.
** [[spoiler:In an effort to generate the radical energies needed to summon his people from the Radical Lands, he uses a giant robot made from the city to attack the US army, killing huge numbers of people. Additionally, the process of summoning them replaces the boring people of Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world, effectively killing them. While the horrible people who work for King Radical are the first to be erased, eventually, boring innocents die as well.]]
** [[spoiler:He abducts a child afflicted with Paul Bunyan's disease and makes said child fight the Doctor. When the Doctor knocks out the giant lumberjack and is about to move on, King Radical floods the room with poison gas to force the Doctor to watch said child die.]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler:When he blows up US Congress, no one is particularly sad to see it go]].
* KnuckleTattoos: His reads "MOST RAD.", they were part of his coronation.
* GambitRoulette: [[spoiler:King Radical's successful plot to overthrow the US government involved some absurdly unlikely events, including the assassination attempt out of many that actually succeeded.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He destroys all of the US and Russia's nukes in order to paint himself as a champion of world peace and send a subtle message to [[spoiler:the rest of the world's rulers that he is an unassailable world power. But as a result, he is unable to use them against Sparklelord when he returns.]]
* LegacyCharacter: He's not the first King Radical. He was promoted when the previous King Radical died.
* LittleNo: [[spoiler:What he says when he sees the return of Sparklelord, the only entity in all of existence that he truly fears.]]
* ManOfTheCity: He is devoted to making Cumberland more... well, radical. Because of his influence, the city has, among other things, skydiving news anchors, a doctor who battled an EldritchAbomination to cure someone's acne, and a CaptainErsatz of Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk advertising for a grocery store. He's not afraid to use illegal means for livening up Cumberland, and Doc is absolutely sure he's plotting something more sinister, but everyone else supports his efforts.
* OhCrap: [[spoiler:When he is in the middle of a presidential speech, his ArchEnemy, the Dr., shows up out of nowhere to reveal he got out of prison, resulting in a long cry of "Oh Fuuuuudge".]]
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He isn't really a scientist at heart, but he occasionally dabbles in it to support his schemes, and his knowledge from the Radical Lands allows him to create all sorts of fantastic machinery.
* PresidentEvil: Being King of the Radical Land pretty much makes him one. [[spoiler: Then he manages to arrange himself (in another Chuck persona) to become Vice President and then to incapacitate President Funkhouser, becoming the President of the United States]].
* QuipToBlack: Well, the closest you can get in comics medium, when he grins and comments "...''Radical''".
* {{Revenge}}: For a long time, he saw his squabble with the Dr. as little more than a game. But in the final arc, [[spoiler:the Dr. damages his plans to save the Radical Lands at the expense of his own world beyond repair, causing King Radical to want to kill him]].
* RevengeByProxy: [[spoiler:As part of his revenge against the Doctor, he forces the Doctor to fight a child transformed into a giant lumberjack and then floods the room with poison gas to make the Doctor watch said child die]].
* SecretHandshake: Has one with Ron Wizard, his Court Magician. It is "A complicated ritual of hand slaps, finger locks and backflips that takes approximately twenty minutes."
* SecretTest: [[spoiler:Gives one to the owners of a restaurant he helped improve to see if they were radical enough for him. They fail and end up ruined as per the test's design.]]
* SuperStrength: He's strong enough to punch someone through a stone wall.
* SuperWindowJump: As is to be expected, King Radical's [[http://drmcninja.com/comics/2012-10-16-25p37.jpg preferred method of entering any given room.]]
* TotallyRadical: In name only - he's perfectly articulate otherwise.
* {{Troll}}: Best shown when [[spoiler:he mockingly reminds Doc about how his defeat of Sparklelord is a PyrrhicVictory.]]
* TheUnfettered: All he cares about is making the world a more radical place. And he doesn't care about how many lives he has to ruin or destroy in order to do it. When [[spoiler:the US army warns him [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing not to use his robot to attack anything]], just as he was trying to figure out what to do with it to summon more of his people, he gives a PsychoticSmirk and attacks ''them'']].
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: Everything he's done was to build up enough Radical Energy to allow the summoning of the cool people from the Radical Lands. He intends to do this again, and again, saving them from their dying homeland, and bringing them to Earth to make it a better place. The bit that needs justifying? [[spoiler:Every Radical Man he summons will take the place of a person on Earth. Initially, it will merely take out the world's biggest jerks, but eventually, ''anything'' that isn't radical enough will be shunted out of existence. Not only that, but King Radical's plan to build up enough Radical Energy involves killing huge numbers of people with a giant [[HauntedTechnology ghost powered]] robot.]]
* VillainDecay: Lampshaded at the end of "All the King's Dirtbikes and all the King's Men", where his plan fails and he falls to the status of "just another person hiding out waiting for the right time to kill Dr [=McNinja=]." [[spoiler:By the end of "Paleontologists, Politicians, and Prologue", this claim is proven false.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: Normally, he never looses his cool no matter what the situation, but when [[spoiler:Sparklelord returns, he starts panicking and desperately begging for help.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: His evilness is questionable, as seen above, but he is at the very least a mob boss. Nonetheless, everyone in town seems to love him due to his reigniting the economy and making the world a cooler place. Ownership of a major media conglomerate probably doesn't hurt matters. He gets particularly adept at this when he [[spoiler:overthrows the US government. He has Ron Wizard dismantle Russia's nuclear weapons, portraying himself as a champion of peace, though the Dr. suspects that it's also intended as a subtle message that he's now an unassailable world power. In spite of King Radical's past and current efforts to kill billions of ordinary people for being boring, the GullibleLemmings all react with shock and sadness when his space shuttle crash lands]].
* WeCanRuleTogether: Tries to convince Dr. McNinja to stop fighting him, because, as a CrazyAwesome Doctor and Irish Ninja, he ''belongs'' in the Radical World he's trying to create.
* WhamShot: The last panel of Page 75 of "All the King's Dirtbikes and All the King's Men": [[spoiler:King Radical is actually a version of Chuck Goodrich from another universe.]]
** And Page 3 of “The End: Part 1” in which he [[spoiler: BLOWS UP THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL BUILDING]]
* WigDressAccent: The long gray hair, the mustache, the beard, the sunglasses, and the unbelievably radical outfit do an absolutely amazing job of hiding the fact that [[spoiler: he has the exact same face as Chuck Goodrich.]]
* WorthyOpponent: After Dr. [=McNinja=]'s apparent death Radical concludes that [=McNinja=] was the only radical thing in Cumberland - at least until he remembers all the others. And even after having a couple chances to kill him, Radical spares him while stating that he should stop fighting his plans due to already being a fairly radical citizen himself. But [[spoiler:after the doctor irredeemably screws up his plans and indirectly kills his best friend Ron, he just wants the doctor dead.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: Fills a room with poison gas when child in Bunyan form is unconscious, knowing that he is too heavy for the Doctor to carry and has to either abandon the child or die with him.
* YouAlreadyChangedThePast: Thinks this is in effect, due to Alpha-Chuck attempting a HeroicSacrifice to stop him and causing a divergent timeline Chuck to paradox out of existence.
* YouMonster: PlayedForLaughs when [[spoiler:King Radical summons his court wizard from the awesome, if dying Radical Lands into a healthy world with bad pizza]].


[[folder:Ron Wizard]]
!Vice-President Ron Wizard (Sir Cowabunga of Clubs)
-->''“I am Ron Wizard, Sir Cowabunga of Clubs, servant to the Radical throne. What foul magic has brought me to this incredibly '''bogus''' plane?”''

Ron is King Radical's Court Magician back in Radical Land, and the second most radical man of them all (after King Radical of course).
* ArtificialLimbs: A robot arm.
* BadassBandolier: Two of them, seemingly for no other reason than to be badass. Which they are.
* BadassCape: Reminiscent of Comicbook/DoctorStrange's first (blue) Cloak of Levitation, minus the Amulet of Agamotto.
* BadassMoustache: Not comparable to Dan's but still pretty badass.
* TheDragon: He is King Radical's court wizard and the second most radical man from the Radical Lands.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He appeared in a flashback in the "Doc Gets Rad" arc.
* IgnoredEpiphany: He asserts that racism is lame and that the Radical Lands have [[SuperiorSpecies long developed past it]]. And yet, [[spoiler:during Sir Sicknasty's coronation as King Radical, he doesn't bother chastising Sir Sicknasty for demeaning horses as unsuitable for the Radical Throne. Though at this point it's not clear if this is his belief or if the Radical Lands don't consider horses radical enough on principle.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:He gets killed by Sparklelord.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Inflicts this on King Radical's army of common men to make them forget [[spoiler:King Radical's MotiveRant about how he is going to shove them out of existence, thereby avoiding a MistreatmentInducedBetrayal.]]
* PresidentEvil: Becomes [[spoiler:vice-president of the United States]] after King Radical [[spoiler:takes over as president.]]
* SecretHandshake: Has one with King Radical. "A complicated ritual of hand slaps, finger locks and backflips that takes approximately twenty minutes."
* StatingTheSimpleSolution: A variant. When King Radical [[spoiler:says that his plan to build up enough Radical energy to bring his people from the Radical Lands isn't working, even making the city a giant robot has only brought Ron over, Ron suggests that KR should make the robot ''do something''.]]


!Sparklelord (formerly Sparkledancer, Sir Hellacious of Hearts)

-->''“It reeks of death and mediocrity. I love it.”''
Evil unicorn who led a revolution of the radical land in an attempt to depose King Radical.
* AntiVillain: He's shaping up to be one, having attempted to usurp the Radical Throne because the King Radical of the time (our King Radical's predecessor) was a douchebag.
* ArchEnemy: To King Radical.
* BadAss: So far he can [[spoiler: survive the vacuum of space, punch through a space shuttle, and destroy a Nasaghast with alarming ease]].
* BerserkButton: It's subtle, but he ''hates'' being called a horse. [[TwistingTheWords Or anything that might, from a certain point of view, be said to call him a horse]].
* ChestInsignia: His true form has a blink-and-miss-it one, which is befittingly [[TheElricSaga the symbol of Chaos]]
* CoolBike: He transforms into one in Doc's world.
* CursedWithAwesome: Literally. The empire of the Radical Lands invaded his forest and twisted him with their magic to fit their ideals of what's "cool". He wasn't entirely happy with the results.
* TheCorrupter: He gradually drives his rider to madness to satiate his appetite for destruction.
* DealWithTheDevil: Sparklelord agrees to very easily stop King Radical from bringing about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. All he asks for in return is [[spoiler:the Doctor's true name, which will unleash a vengeful ghost wizard planning to put the Doctor under a {{Curse}} that will tear apart his life. Sparkelord is also only too happy to inform the entire planet that the Dr. was responsible for his release, causing everyone to turn against him]].
* TheDreaded: He is the only thing in all of existence that King Radical truly fears.
* FallenHero: Used to be [[spoiler:a knight of the Radical court alongside Sir Sicknasty of Spades, now King Radical]].
* GodzillaThreshold: Dr. [=McNinja=] summons him as a last-ditch effort to stop Radical from merging Earth with the Radical Lands.
* KarmaHoudini: He is ultimately released from the StableTimeLoop and departs [=McNinja=]'s world for good after getting revenge against Radical and ensuring the Dr.'s life will become hell.
* KlingonPromotion: Killed the previous King Radical in hopes of becoming the next King. When Sir Sicknasty was chosen, Sparkledancer promised he'd kill him too.
* LiquidAssets: He was [[spoiler:draining power from the Radical Lands in a bid to become a PhysicalGod.]]
* MasterOfIllusion: Can pose as a motorcycle and influence people's dream.
* OmnicidalManiac: He exists only to destroy and inflicted a corruption that has been gradually destroying his own world. According to King Radical, given the chance, he will destroy Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world too. Nevertheless, [[spoiler:in the final arc, Sparklelord decides he is satisfied with getting revenge and watching the universe decay through natural entropy]].
* PhysicalGod: He gradually drained the LifeForce of the Radical Lands in a bid to become all-powerful. By the time of the final arc, he does indeed appear to be godlike.
* RealMenWearPink: His natural form in our world is a badass motorcycle that just happens to have a rainbow design on it. Also, he's a unicorn in whose name is [[spoiler: Sparkledancer]]. Jokes are made about the fact that he looks like a mixture of a heavy metal album cover and a Lisa Frank piece.
* TheResenter: Part of the reason he turned evil. He was [[spoiler:one of the four knights of the Radical Lands]], and felt that ''he'' deserved to become king. When the [[GeniusLoci Radical Lands]] chose Sir Sicknasty of Spades instead, he tried to destroy everything out of spite. It is also worth noting that [[spoiler: he was forced into becoming a citizen of Radical lands when they invaded his forest.]]
* {{Revenge}}: The Empire of the Radical Lands invaded his forest and twisted him with their magic for their ideals of what's cool. He got revenge by draining power out of the lands until they started to crumble to dust. Furthermore, [[spoiler:he damages King Radical's plans beyond repair by destroying the only other known time portal, preventing King Radical from saving the Radical Lands at the expense of the Dr.'s universe. He also gets revenge against the Dr. for trapping him by ensuring the entire universe will be out to make his life hell. But after this, the unicorn takes no more action directly, being satisfied to watch the results.]]
* StableTimeLoop: The Doctor throws him into a time portal that leads back to where he was discovered. The unicorn subsequently gets caught in a time loop, going through the exact same events over and over again until [[spoiler:Doc is left with little choice but to release him.]]
* ThatManIsDead: To his previous name, [[spoiler:Sparkledancer]].
* {{Unicorn}}: His true form.
* VillainExitStageLeft: [[spoiler:Just leaves after thwarting Radical's plan, not bothering to find out for sure if he is dead—but making sure everyone knows the doctor is responsible for unleashing him.]]
* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: Dr. [=McNinja=]'s world couldn't handle the sheer majesty of his true form, and thus transformed him into the closest thing. [[spoiler:After Doc's world is made considerably more radical by King Radical's influence, he is able to resume his true form.]]




Gordito's uncle and a former palaeontologist.
* CassandraGambit: He deliberately spreads rumor of his gang as a group of dinosaur riding banditos, believing that no one would believe such a ridiculous story and that this would prevent the target of his vengeance from knowing of him until it is too late. Though as King Radical's efforts make the world more and more a WorldOfWeirdness, he later acknowledges that at this point, it isn't so unbelievable after all.
* KissMeImVirtual: When he is told that [[spoiler:there is no Jenny, he goes out to look for whoever wrote the chat messages in hopes that said person could be his romantic partner. But "she" ultimately turns out to be nothing more than a non-sapient chat bot]].
* MurderTheHypotenuse: When he discovers that his love, Jenny, has fallen for another man, he decides to go out and kill him.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: He becomes a dinosaur riding bandito.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: At first, he really does become a bandit. But after being shown the error of his ways by the Doc, it turns into little more than show.
* PutOnABus: King Radical tricks him into [[spoiler:eliminating President Funkhouser, which results in Doc banishing him to the [[DarkWorld Negazone]].]]
* UnwittingPawn: To [[spoiler:King Radical]]. First as part of a plot to create more interesting news. Then as part of a GambitRoulette that successfully manipulates him into [[spoiler:getting rid of President Funkhouser]].


!Martin Birding

Old college friend of Dr. [=McNinja=] who was once a teammate of his on a crime-fighting superhero team. Now he owns a chain of grocery stores.
[[caption-width-right:240:Martin's monster and human forms.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: It's shown that one of the motivators for him hulking out to save Doc and Gordito was because those two were one of the few people who treated him well.
* DumbMuscle: Literally. His intelligence is inversely proportional to how hulked-out he is at the time.
* {{Expy}}: Of the IncredibleHulk
* FreudianExcuse: He didn't actually intend to betray the team. His powers make him dumb, and people frequently take advantage of him when they find out, so he decided that being thought of as ruthless instead of gullible was the lesser of two evils.
* GagPenis: When hulked-out. [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/13p43/ The sight of it brought McNinja to his knees sobbing like a kid]].
* HanlonsRazor: The moral of Martin's character arc.
* HulkingOut: As part of his {{expy}} status to the [[TropesNamers Trope Namer]].
* LamarckWasRight: He inherited his powers from his father, who got them while experimenting on himself.
* MagicPants: Averted hilariously.
-->'''AltText:''' [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/13p39/ The pants aren't stretchy.]]
* PowerIncontinence: He ends up getting stuck halfway between his normal form and monster form, requiring a trip to Dr. [=McNinja=].
* {{Revenge}}: King Radical took advantage of his troll form's stupidity to have him take out a large loan, forcing him to work for King Radical to pay it back. In the final arc, Dr. [=McNinja=] persuades him to seek revenge.
* WellDoneSonGuy: His father (an expy of Creator/StephenHawking, hence the surname) is very unhappy about Martin's decision to use his powers to shill a grocery store chain and has long looked down on him for his less than stellar grades.


!Charles "Chuck" Goodrich (the Mayor)
-> ''"Greetings from the future, you son of a bitch!"''

Mayor of Cumberland, elected for his plans to stop zombies destroying the world.
[[caption-width-right:120:Charles "Chuck" Goodrich: Chrononaut]]
* BadassNormal: He isn't a ninja or a superbeing, but all versions of Chuck Goodrich have shown various degrees of badassness, ranging from stopping a zombie apocalypse to sacrificing themselves to save the world by shooting a giant dinosaur.
* CatchPhrase: "Greetings from the future you son of a bitch!"
* ChosenOne: Chuck Goodrich is from the future. He came back in time to avert disaster, and succeeded. Except averting the current disaster always leads to a new future disaster in the new timeline, and a new future Chuck Goodrich comes back to avert the new disaster. Chuck-Prime is growing rather tired of it. This even happens when [[spoiler: it's a Chuck in an alternate reality instead of just an alternate timeline.]]
* CrazyPrepared: Chuck designed the world's first zombie outbreak defense system well before the world's first zombie outbreak. He installed the system after [[spoiler:traveling back in time from a future overrun by zombies]].
* HeroicSacrifice:
** One Chuck sacrifices himself to the Horrorsaurus in order to get the [=NASAGhast=] to attack it in the BadFuture.
** Chuck Prime hurls himself into the time portal to close it forever, knowing as he does that he will almost certainly die at King Radical's hands at the other end.
%%* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* PassingTheTorch: One Chuck more or less takes over Chuck Prime's life after he went back to do what he came to do. Then the guy who took over from Chuck Prime as mayor passes his title to the new Chuck so he can go off on adventures again. [[spoiler:Too bad it was actually King Radical (another version of Chuck) in disguise.]]
* TemporalParadox: Chuck ends up creating these whenever he sets out to fix a problem.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: [[spoiler: Every incarnation of him has to do this.]]
* TheSlowPath: [[spoiler:Chuck picks the wrong moment to jump out of the time stream and his temporal stabilizer gets smashed, giving him ''plenty'' of time to prepare for the problem he went back to solve.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Scared of zombies which make sense since he comes from a timeline where they ruined the world.
* YouCantFightFate: Chuck will ''always'' [[spoiler: travel back in time after discovering a time portal]]. This applies even when [[spoiler: its a Chuck from an alternate universe like the Radical Lands.]]


!Ben Franklin II
-->''“Judy, I am being '''stalked''' by a '''horse'''. A '''spooky horse'''.”''
A clone of Benjamin Franklin and Dr. [=McNinja's=] college professor. Helping him is the focus of the Punch Dracula arc.
* BackFromTheDead: After dying in the D.A.R.E. arc, he is brought back to life [[spoiler:by Dracula's immortality serum... [[CameBackWrong though he gradually transforms into a Headless Horseman]] and has to be given a MercyKill by UnfinishedBusiness]].
* ClusterFBomb: Tends to speak this way when in a sour mood.
%%* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive
* FlippingTheBird: [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/4p29/ Does this to some ninjas]].
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Creator/BenjaminFranklin was a real person. He was a major contributor in the construction of the United States of America and a noted polymath in his time.
%%* LosingYourHead


[[folder:Dr. [=McLuchador=]]]
!Dr. [=McLuchador=]
-> ''"Shh... I prefer the spiders not to know my name."''

A mentally unstable doctor wearing a luchador mask. His primary means of healing his patients involves extreme methods, i.e. shoving the cure up their nose and then body-slamming them. Ran out of Cumberland by Dr. [=McNinja=].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: His methods of healing are over-the-top and insane, but they ''work''.
* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:The real]] Dr. [=McLuchador=] died in anonymity years ago. [[spoiler:Dr. [=McNinja=]]] briefly ran a DeadPersonImpersonation gambit to infiltrate King Radical's gang.
* CombatMedic: He a doctor ''and'' a luchador. This comes with the territory.
* TheExtremistWasRight: He's known for using extreme and dangerous remedies on his patients. However, those remedies also appear to ''work'' (at least when [[spoiler:it's [=Dr. McNinja=]]] at work).
* MaskedLuchador: Like Doctor [=McNinja=], he wears a cultural mask and never removes it. [[spoiler: Which makes it easier for [=McNinja=] to impersonate him]].
* NoKillLikeOverkill: One dose of a ultra-deadly poison ''should'' cure you. But let's use two, just to make sure.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:He IS Dr. [=McNinja=].]] [[DeadAllAlong The real Dr. McLuchador died in anonymity years ago]]. The current one is actually [[spoiler:Dr. [=McNinja=]]] running a DeadPersonImpersonation gambit to infiltrate King Radical's gang.
* TheRival: to Dr. [=McNinja=].


[[folder:Dame Dudeical]]
!Dame Dudeical of Diamonds

Was one of Radical Land's four knights, along with Ron Wizard, Sir Sicknasty, and Sir Hellacious.
* ActionGirl: In a place like Radical Land, you probably don't get a title like that without being this.
* BadassCape: A green one.
* NoNameGiven: Unlike the other knights, she doesn't have a name that we know of, just the title.


[[folder:President Maria Funkhouser]]
!President Maria Funkhouser
-> ''"Somebody is '''still''' trying to kill me."''

The missing former president of the United States.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Given the sort of world she lives in, it is hardly surprising an authority figure as important as her can fight.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: President ''Funkhouser''.
* {{Badass}}: Bursting in through the windows of the Oval Office while armed with automatic weapons and outnumbering her 3 to 1? [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/28p05/ You still won't be able to take her down.]]
* BoringButPractical: Ron Wizard puts her in the pilot seat of a HumongousMecha he created out of her tanks in order to create a radical foe to generate radical energies. After said energies start destabilizing, she starts wondering if maybe it would be better for an actual pilot to drive the mech instead of the president.
* DeadlyEuphemism: When the Vice President is revealed to be [[spoiler:in league with a GovernmentConspiracy attempting TheCoup, she "exiles" him. To outer space.]]
* DestructiveSaviour: When King Radical attacks [[spoiler:with a HumongousMecha made from the city of Cumberland, and she ends up in the cockpit of another mecha,]] she responds by attacking King Radical, endangering the people stuck inside [[spoiler:Radical's mecha. (She learns to pilot it with more skill later).]]
* EyepatchOfPower: She has one covering her left eye.
* GoodIsNotSoft: If you've wronged her or endangered the country, expect no mercy.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Took out three secret service agents with a [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/28p05/ flagpole]].
* NotAfraidToDie: She outright tells Dr. [=McNinja=] that one of the many assassination attempts on her will eventually succeed. She doesn't think she can prevent her death, but she hopes she can prevent the person trying to kill her from getting what he wants by it.
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: President Minority, by virtue of being a female president before any RealLife woman took that office. Doubly so since she's AmbiguouslyBrown. She's also got President Action going on, between the EyepatchOfPower and the epaulets and the "presidential jetpack" and the fact that she pilots a HumongousMecha dinosaur made out of military vehicles. She originally wanted to pilot a giant mechanical George Washington, but it was never finished thanks to {{Obstructive Bureaucrat}}s.
* PutOnABus: Became trapped in the Nega-zone due to [[spoiler: King Radical's intervention and scheming.]] May also qualify as SealedGoodInACan.
