[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/huey6876786_5425.png]]
->''"Vision? What do you know about my vision? My vision would turn your world upside down, tear asunder your illusions, and send the sanctuary of your own ignorance crashing down around you."''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Regina King

A young black boy who moves with his brother and grandfather from inner-city Chicago, Illinois to suburban Woodcrest, Maryland. Intelligent yet pessimistic for his age, he is a radical left-wing activist and an alleged "domestic terrorist".
----
* ActingYourIntellectualAge: Huey is very intelligent and mature for a 10 year-old child. He has demonstrated a depth of understanding topics that would seem to surpass his young age such as: politics, religion, the media, businesses and corporations, African-American culture, and American society as a whole.
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: In the pilot episode, Huey is annoyed that the rich white guests at Wuncler's party find his political rants to be cute instead of offensive.
* AfroAsskicker
* [[AngryBlackMan Angry Black Boy]]: Especially in the comic, though [=McGruder=] [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/21e72b1a3eaaa92b1885d85ebcd0fad1/tumblr_mgewrfkXKh1rgam01o1_1280.gif has been known to use him to criticize the concept]].
* AntiHero
* AsideGlance: He has done this multiple times (especially in the first season) to get his cynicism or disapproval across.
* {{Badass}}: He's a skilled martial artist.
** AdaptationalBadass: In the comics, Huey's martial arts skills are an InformedAbility. In the cartoon, not so much.
** BadassAdorable: He can kick ass despite being a prepubescent child.
** BadassBookworm: He's very well read and has an interest in politics.
** RetiredBadass: As early as Season 3, he claimed to be retired from revolutionary activism (or "domestic terrorism" depending on one's views).
* BerserkButton: "I do not like being laughed at."
* BirdsOfAFeather: Huey became best friends with Caesar because of their common political views.
** Well, it was more because they were the only black kids in Woodcrest (besides Riley) and could relate. While he often agrees with Huey, Caesar is generally much less interested in politics and occasionally gets annoyed that it's all Huey ever seems to talk about.
* BlackAndNerdy: Downplayed (in the TV series). A few times he has quoted ''Star Wars'' characters.
* BlueOni: To Riley's Red.
** Also to Caesar's Red in the comics.
* ButtMonkey: Though not as much as Riley.
* TheCassandra: Riley and Grandad often ignore his advice.
* CavalierCompetitor: Over the kickball game. At least until Ming [[ItsPersonal makes it personal]].
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the first season, Huey was very spiteful towards white people, to the point that you could consider him racist against them. In the following seasons, while Huey still rails against TheMan and the government, you usually won't hear him insult white people specifically. Maybe because in the TV show, his only friend is (half) white.
* CharacterCheck: He starts quoting Malcolm X in Season 4, and he is not too far off from his character from the comics in some episodes, such as "Freedomland".
* TheComicallySerious / TheStoic: He usually keeps a neutral (yet a bit pessimistic) expression on his face, and only a few times has he shown anything else. But see NotSoStoic.
** PerpetualFrowner: Almost always seen with a frown to emphasize his cynical and pessimistic personality.
*** Interestingly enough, an Adult Swim bumper once featured a fan asking the question, "Does Huey ever smile?" The AS team, apparently stumped, claim to have called up Aaron [=McGruder=] to ask. What was the answer? Apparently, the animators are contractually obligated never to depict Huey smiling or laughing, ever. However, Huey has smiled about 5 times in the animated series. Though Aaron denies them as nothing more than animation errors.
* ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch: InUniverse, he does this when he says that the first ''SoulPlane'' was as funny as a lynching. He justifies it by saying that he's also never seen a lynching, but he knows they're not funny. (Granddad tries to argue that he ''has'' seen a funny lynching, but that's neither here nor there.)
* CompositeCharacter: The cartoon version Huey is a combination of comic Huey's radical views and cynicism with Caesar's OnlySaneMan attitude.
* ConspiracyTheorist: He thinks that every white man's in on it, and that you can't tame them with cheese. He's at least wrong about the cheese part. Downplayed in the cartoon, where he acknowledges that most white people are just very, very ignorant, or are evil for non-racist reasons.
** He also tends to adhere to other, non-racial conspiracies as well. In the comics, he totally buys into the [[MillenniumBug [=Y2K=]]] scare to a ridiculous extent, to the point of running drills, trying to get his grandfather to buy a generator, and (perhaps jokingly) expecting irradiated zombies to rampage through the hills. This results in him [[CrowningMomentOfFunny totally freaking out when Granddad pulls a prank on him by cutting the lights just as the New Year hits]].
** Huey is introduced in the pilot episode by claiming that "Jesus was black, Ronald Reagan is the Devil, and the government's lying about 9/11." Either he really believes all of this, was trying to anger/troll a rich white audience, or probably both.
* CrazyPrepared: Let's just say that when shit goes down, Huey is prepared.
** CrazySurvivalist: In "The Fried Chicken Flu", he hoards a lot of supplies to prepare for a great disaster, such as the fried chicken flu epidemic. [[spoiler:Though it all goes to waste, as the "fried chicken flu" is really an outbreak of salmonella that was exaggerated by the media to be far deadlier than it actually was.]]
* CreepyChild: Even though Huey is a little child, he never smiles or laughs, and he's also a wannabe political militant (and he fully expects to be imprisoned for it some day).
** TroublingUnchildlikeBehaviour: Where do we begin? Huey Freeman has: Planned a prison escape, self-made an electric shock glove, brought nunchaku to a cinema, and created a bomb with the intent to assassinate Ed Wuncler II. (Although in Huey's defense, Ed II is a loan shark who isn't above murdering people.)
* CunningLinguist: In the episode "The Red Ball", he has shown to understand and speak fluent Mandarin.
* TheCynic / ThePessimist: He's the master of negative thinking. He looks down on just about everyone, including his family and friends. Though granted the obvious reasons for this (he does bump into so many idiots and jerks), it makes one wonder what can make a little boy so grumpy almost all the time.
** SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers: He's often at the receiving end of this.
** SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: He probably believes this.
* TheDeterminator: This applies to the first season only, as later seasons show him to be much more apathetic.
* DirtyCommunist: At least according to right-wing media personalities.
* DisappearedDad / MissingMom: It's implied that his parents are deceased.
* DisapprovingLook: The boy is famous for it. Just look at his character image. Particularly noticeable in the show, which is less dialogue-heavy and has more moments of Huey just looking at people to get his skepticism or disapproval across, but even in the comic, the {{Beat Panel}}s of Huey just looking at someone who is being ignorant or foolish are common.
* TheEeyore: He sometimes crosses over with GrumpyBear. His endless war against TheMan has left him without the ability to take much enjoyment from things. Naturally, [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/b9bbb13cb590d7055e0050a25aac0f81/tumblr_mm7yvqqUPT1rgam01o1_1280.gif his being a constant downer causes Caesar no shortage of annoyance]], [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/c6863869afa75145aa8eb165b66c4f17/tumblr_mgdj39nCFv1rgam01o1_1280.gif ostracizes him from what friends he has at times]], and every once in a while results in his being called out on it.
* FascinatingEyebrow
* FreudianTrio: [[TheSpock The Superego]] to Robert's [[TheKirk Ego]] and Riley's [[TheMcCoy Id]].
* GenreSavvy: Listen to the kid. It might just save your life.
* GoodIsNotNice: He usually means well, but has a very pessimistic view of mankind, he hates most things, and he is especially hard on anything he considers ignorant, which everyone around him possesses.
* HypocriticalHumor: In the comic. Caesar is usually responsible for calling him on it.
-->'''Huey:''' Most people don't have the time or the energy to follow politics, and the government takes advantage of that. This country needs to keep a closer eye on Washington! We need to start holding our elected officials responsible for this mess!
-->'''Caesar:''' Wow... So who is our Congressman, Huey?
-->'''Huey:''' Who knows... Some punk...
* IgnoredExpert: Yes. He uses his knowledge of the actions and the personalities of the people involved to know roughly of what is going to happen in the future. Not that anyone listens to his warnings.
** For example, in "The Fundraiser", Huey accurately predicts what will become of Riley's candy-selling racket, going so far as to give him a bulletproof vest, which eventually turned out to save his life.
* InsufferableGenius: Particularly in the comic. For example, one year for Christmas, he gave everyone he knew free coupons for hour-long lectures from him on a flaw of theirs of ''his'' choice.
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: Huey has very few friends. He scares everyone off [[BirdsOfAFeather except for Caesar]] and Jazmine (especially in the cartoon, due to Caesar's absence).
* IntergenerationalFriendship:
** With Tom, at least as much as Huey's cynicism will allow.
** Also develops this with The White Shadow to an extent.
* IWarnedYou: Writer of "I Told You So: Emergency Household Protocols For Catastrophic Scenario."
* {{Jerkass}}
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He does have good intentions (in the animation at least). It's just masked by several layers of elitism.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: He plays it straight and also subverts it when he gets in a fight with Riley.
* KnightInSourArmor: Is often bitter and cynical about how little effect his work actually has on the world, and the small chance of him making any sort of difference whatsoever, but still does what he feels needs to be done.
* LackOfEmpathy: In the comics, he can sometimes be a rare heroic example. Though he does care about people, [[http://www.gocomics.com/boondocks/2005/07/31 he often has little tolerance for other peoples' feelings, emotions, and problems]], especially in comparison to what he ''thinks'' [[InsufferableGenius their feelings, emotions, and problems ought to be]].
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It hasn't been revealed just what The White Shadow actually is.
* MeaningfulName / NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Named after Huey P. Newton, co-founder of the Black Panther Party.
** Incidentally, Huey P. Newton was named for Louisiana governor Huey P. Long, making this kind of a layered example of the trope.
* MundaneUtility: In the comics, he often tries to use his skills at revolutionary rhetoric and great berth of knowledge of black history to, among other things, get out of mowing the grass. It always fails.
* NervesOfSteel: He didn't even flinch at the end of the "Attack of the Kung-Fu Killer Wolf Bitch" episode when [[spoiler:Luna killed herself with a grenade]] or when he and Riley pointed the airsoft's at each other's faces. Riley's hand shook and trembled; Huey's was still as stone.
* NeverLiveItDown: InUniverse. For a while in the comics, he's unable to live down the extreme extent to which he bought into Y2K.
* NobleMaleRoguishMale: A relatively noble one.
* NoRespectGuy: To pretty much everyone. Jazmine, however, is an exception as she is the only character, in the whole series, who has consistently shown to listen and even follow Huey.
* NoSenseOfHumor: Beyond his sarcasm, he really doesn't seem to have an interest in comedy. A {{running gag}} in the comic has Caesar either [[http://hueyfreemanonlyspeaksthetruth.tumblr.com/image/61910144892 pointing it out]], [[http://hueyfreemanonlyspeaksthetruth.tumblr.com/image/53708237802 failing to tell him a joke]], or trying and failing to get him to say something funny. One mini-arc even has him trying to teach Huey to tell "[[YourMom your momma]]" jokes, with disastrous results.
* NoSocialSkills: Sometimes, not that he cares. He doesn't really have time for tact, hates most things, and is especially hard on ignorance, which everyone around him has in spades. He doesn't have many friends, but then that doesn't matter to him either. Because of this, characters rarely approach him in a social setting, so this only comes out occasionally. [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/c1315aca790a2698dca52bfcace78ef2/tumblr_mgbteyU4ZT1rgam01o1_1280.gif Poor Jazmine...]]
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: 4 seasons and 9 years in and he's still 10 years old.
* NotSoStoic: Occasionally you can see Huey look distressed, such as when his former friend Cairo rejects him.
** WhenHeSmiles: Rarely though, you can see Huey in a better mood. And it's actually quite [[http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs22/f/2007/360/5/2/Huey_Freeman__s_smiles_by_MadMassa13.jpg nice]]. Although it has been stated that those instances of him being happy are animation errors, it works for his character as those particular moments of uncharacteristic happiness have something to do with what's happening or who he is speaking to.
*** He smiles when he asks Jazmine to go and assist him on his plan to bust a wrongfully convicted prisoner. Although this was temporary when Jazmine stated that she could not go.
*** He smiles when he set up a soapbox and sees Jazmine across the street with her lemonade stand.
*** He seems genuinely happy to see Granddad return from his Costa Rica trip.
*** He smiles twice when Riley starts having success during the basketball game.
* ObliviousToLove: Sometimes. Jazmine occasionally implies that she has some kind of crush on him, to which he's usually as brusque as ever, sometimes even ''moreso'' than usual. For instance, at one point in the comic, Jazmine gives him a Valentine. When she asks if he has one for her, he tells her he does and that that he'll be right back with it. He then shuts the door in her face and leaves her waiting outside. [[{{Jerkass}} For two hours, until someone shouts at her to go home]].
* OnlySaneMan: In the cartoon.
* OutOfFocus: In the first season, Huey was a lot more outspoken and would actively try to prevent whatever disaster is happening due to the actions of the other characters. In the later seasons, Huey is a lot more apathetic, and his role in many episodes is to offer a few pointed comments and warn the other characters that whatever they're doing is going to blow up in their face, and he mostly lets them deal with the consequences when they don't listen to him.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Huey is a far-left-wing activist who dreams of becoming a militant revolutionary, although he never actually gets to commit any crimes (there was an attempted prison break-out and an attempted assassination of Ed Wuncler II, although both of these plans failed before Huey could even execute them). Nevertheless Huey gets a lot of media and government attention, and he's been branded as a domestic terrorist.
* PosterGalleryBedroom: His (half of the) room is neat with a full bookshelf, a computer and posters of Che and Malcolm X.
* PowerFist: The 'Black Power Fist'. He builds one with instructions from the Internet.
* PsychicPowers: An odd example, as ''TheBoondocks'' as a series only ever slightly ventures into UrbanFantasy territory in its cartoon iteration, but Huey has a tendency to come across information that he would have otherwise never known about in unnatural ways.
** DreamSpying: When Stinkmeaner [[LikeABadassOutOfHell ascended from hell]], Huey had a dream of it happening that same night. When he told Robert about it, he tried to reassure him that Stinkmeaner was dead and [[AnxietyDreams it was just a dream]]. [[TheCassandra Quite obviously, that wasn't the case]].
*** Similarly, but with much less at stake, in the comic strip Huey had a dream that his Granddad had "betrayed" him by getting a government job. He confronted his granddad about it, asking if he had perhaps gotten work as a mailman. At this point, Robert reveals to the boys that he has just gotten work as a census taker, much to Huey's dismay.
** MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: When Stinkmeaner's spirit is running around spreading discord in Tom's body, they cut to a shot of Huey on his hill, narrating the fact that he could sense an evil force gathering nearby, unable to shake the feeling nor the memory of his earlier dream from his mind.
** SpiritAdvisor: He's the only person who can see or hear the voice of the blue StarWars ghost version of Ghostface Killah, (who isn't ''actually'' dead, so this trope cannot fall into the ISeeDeadPeople category).
*** The White Shadow, who for most of his existence seemed to be a non-supernatural, imagination-based entity, became something of a SpiritAdvisor to Huey in the episode "It's Goin' Down". The key element that made him not just a hallucination that spits out things Huey had heard earlier in the day like he was in the episode "The Real", was that the White Shadow warned him of the imminent invasion of his home by actual federal agents, something that Huey had no idea was going to happen. What or who the White Shadow is remains to be seen.
* TheQuietOne: He's generally very calm and reserved, especially after season 1.
* RageBreakingPoint: Not prone to overt anger (his rage is usually more [[TranquilFury calm]]), but after Bush gets re-elected he spends two weeks holding it in and then explodes pretty much at random. Caesar has to physically restrain him [[ItMakesSenseInContext from ranting himself off of a cliff.]]
--> '''Huey:''' "It's like middle America called a meeting and said, 'what's the best way to crush Huey's hope for the future?' ... '''MISSION ACCOMPLISHED B***CHES!"'''
--> '''Caesar:''' "Healthy... getting it out is healthy..."
* RaisedByGrandparents: He and Riley are raised by their grandfather Robert.
* RantInducingSlight: He's usually very calm, even in frustration, but when he's in a foul mood watch out. One arc in the comics had him sulking in a particularly drawn out bad mood, and Jazmine tries to cheer him up by giving him a card... which was unfortunately covered in cherubic looking white children. When he sees this, Huey explodes on her so badly that [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold she starts crying and he immediately apologizes.]]
-->'''Jazmine''': "I thought it was the thought that counts!"
-->'''Huey''': "YOU WEREN'T THINKING!"
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Riley and Caesar's red. Red to Tom's blue.
* [[FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling Responsible Sibling]]: To Riley's Foolish Sibling.
* RidiculousProcrastinator: Huey gets an entire arc about how he can't get himself to just mow the grass. Even afterward, him doing absolutely anything he can to avoid doing it becomes a RunningGag.
* [[ScaryBlackMan Scary Black Boy]]
* TheSchizophreniaConspiracy: In ''The Real'' he concludes that the he's either crazy or that the government is trying to make him think he's crazy.
* SeriousBusiness: The nerd in him will quote Obi-Wan Kenobi and he's repeatedly overreacted when he's given news of bad black movies etc. by Caesar.
** He was also determined to write a serious dramatic play for his elementary school, but he fired all the kid actors. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint He didn't understand why the parents were annoyed by this.]]
* TheSnarkKnight: A very accurate example.
* SoapboxSadie: In the episode, "The Block is Hot". However, that is still a natural element to his character.
* TheSpock
* StraightMan
* [[StrawCharacter Strawman Political]]: Hard to pin his ideology down, but a few of his commentaries place him in the Anarcho-Syndicalist / Black Internationalization theory. He also is well versed in Marxism or at least Maoism. Overall Huey, if he isn't the OnlySaneMan, is instead a far-left conspiracy theorist.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Huey is stoic and often blunt, but when the chips are down, so is his personal barrier.
* {{Ubermensch}}: Deconstructed. Initially, he was something of a milder case. But as the series progresses, he has his faith challenged in ways that force him to accept there are forces he can't understand and sometimes he can't make a difference. As the series progresses, Huey starts to become more and more hopeless to the point of eventually giving up on society and accepting that his outlook is not enough.
* TheUnfavorite: Implied in the animated series because he's less likely to go along with his Granddad's crazy schemes than Riley is. On the other hand, do we ever see him getting belt-whipped by Granddad? Though of course Riley causes most of the trouble.
* UnreliableNarrator: In "Attack Of The Killer Kung Fu Wolf Bitch", though he corrects himself.
* ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer: He strongly believes this.
* WeekendInventor: He builds an electric shock glove (called the "Black Power Fist"), an emergency power generator (during an outbreak of [[spoiler:salmonella]]), and chemical explosives (he considered killing Ed II).
* WellIntentionedExtremist
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: In the cartoon he certainly acts like this, but the reality is that it's just that: an act. In truth, he just has more common sense than Robert or Riley. He certainly is very mature for his age and he has plenty of knowledge, but he doesn't have all of the intelligence to back it up.
* TheWorfEffect: While a skilled martial artist, he is often the one kissing concrete when he gets into fights, though to be fair, a lot of his opponents are adults and elite {{Badass}}es. The only fights he has won or at least, had the advantage in, were against either those in his own age group, or just {{Mooks}}.
* VitriolicBestBuds: In a one-sided way with Jazmine, who is much nicer to him.
* {{Sibling Yin|Yang}}

!!Riley Freeman
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/riley3498242_6108.png]]
->''"Game recognize game, and you lookin' kinda unfamiliar right now."''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Regina King

Huey's younger brother, a wannabe gangster and juvenile delinquent with an eye for trouble.
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: Not a dye job but a hairstyle change. Riley's hair was changed from being short to having cornrows.
** It should be noted that his hairstyle also changed later in the comic's run; in fact there was an arc about him growing his hair out.
* AesopAmnesia: Has a certain mindset of how the world should work, so any lessons that don't line up with it are immediately discarded.
** Lampshaded at the end of "The Fund-Raiser". When Riley is offered an opportunity back into the candy business, he recalls all the crap he went through near the end of the episode ([[ItMakesSenseInContext such as narrowly escaping a shootout between two rival gangs and the FBI]]). He then smiles deviously and the credits roll.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling / BrattyHalfPint
* AscendedFanboy: He's a huge fan of gangsta rappers and is friends with a few of his idols, including Thugnificent and Gangstalicious.
* {{Badass}}: Despite not having any actual training and just being a kid, Riley has absolutely no sense of fear, and will take on ANY opponent, adult or not, that he thinks have wronged him. [[ButtMonkey He usually won't win]] but he puts up a hell of a fight.
** BadassAdorable
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
** IJustWantToBeBadass
** TookALevelInBadass: He is ''far'' more agile and spry in season four, such as doing impressive aerial flips.
* BookDumb / TheDitz / ObfuscatingStupidity: DependingOnTheWriter; In the comics, he invokes this intentionally. But in the cartoon, he really ''is'' that stupid.
** In the comics, outside of being a talented artist, he is also exceptionally bright when he wants to be. He does poorly in school to protect his "rep".
** He does also learn to be a great artist during an episode in the first season of the show.
** In the first season, Riley was more on the fence when it came to obfuscating stupidity. For all the dumb things he did, the boy was a surprisingly good debater.
** Also, he showed remarkable cunning in "Let's Nab Oprah" by misdirecting Oprah's bodyguards which included Bushido Brown, certainly more cunning than Ed III & Gin Rummy have ''ever'' shown.
** The third season of the cartoon also brings him closer to this; he is, among other things, a master strategist, but is ''willingly'' GenreBlind to an extent that would require him to be secretly GenreSavvy.
* ButtMonkey: In the cartoon. He got his ass handed to him by the local bully, who stole his chain on top of it, Edd III and Gin Rummy stole his pimped out bike he worked really hard on, and Huey absolutely dominated him in the "Home Alone" episode.
* CatchPhrase:
** "Nigga, you gay."
** "Pause."
* CharacterExaggeration: Becomes more of a TedBaxter in the animated series, and even moreso after the first season. Somewhat justified in that Riley is supposed to represent black youth stirred in the wrong direction, imitating rappers. During the time of the strip most rappers were known for how "hard" or "gangster" they were. Currently most rappers are known for how flashy and braggadocios they are.
* CutenessProximity: One of Grandad's crazy ex-girlfriends tried to [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe kidnap Ruley because of how adorable he was]].
* {{Delinquent}}: Well he is a wannabe gangster after all. He really believes that getting into trouble with the law will make him cool.
** TroublingUnchildlikeBehaviour: Very foul-mouthed and a willing accomplice to some of Ed III's and Rummy's crimes.
* {{Determinator}}: He's not a very good fighter, but good luck on getting him to stay down.
* DisappearedDad / MissingMom: It's implied that his parents are deceased.
* EnemiesEqualsGreatness: He's a firm believer in this trope, but [[WrongGenreSavvy unfortunately]], this led Butch Magnus to steal his chain.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Though he has an eye for trouble and is extremely callous, he generally draws the line at doing things that directly hurt people. [[DependingOnTheWriter Usually.]] It often depends on his role in the plot - if he's being an antagonist or a VillainProtagonist, then he'll be worse, but if the gag is that he's in over his head he'll always have a line he won't cross. In particular, he is thoroughly creeped out by Lamilton and is often appalled at how extreme Ed and Rummy can be (not that it stops him from calling them).
* EvilLaugh: His sadistic snicker.
* [[FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling Foolish Sibling]]
* FreudianTrio: [[TheMcCoy The Id]] to Robert's [[TheKirk Ego]] and Huey's [[TheSpock Superego]]
* FullyAutomaticClipShow: Him calling things gay In "The Story Of Gangstalicious, Part 2".
* GenreSavvy: He can predict his Granddad's Catcher Freeman story, which sounds an awful lot like a cliched action/romance movie.
* GirlsHaveCooties
--> ''(After Riley complainins that he might never be able to have money and girls like the rappers on T.V.)''
-->'''Huey:''' Riley, you don't even LIKE girls!
-->'''Riley:''' I DO SO! ''([[{{Beat}} beat]])'' Just as long as they don't touch me...
* GoodOldFisticuffs
* GuiltyPleasures: He feels great shame when it's revealed he's a Lauryn Hill fan. This isn't because Hill is a regular guilty pleasure, [[http://www.gocomics.com/boondocks/1999/07/16/ as Huey explains]] -- he doesn't see Hill's positive messages as compatible with his chosen "gangsta" lifestyle. He has an image and mindset to maintain.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: When he is introduced to something or someone that is or he considers to be gay, he will either criticize, state, or mention that he is straight
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Thugnificient.
* {{Jerkass}}
** [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jerk With A]] HiddenHeartOfGold: [[DownplayedTrope Occasion]][[DependingOnTheWriter ally]].
* KidsAreCruel: He's (usually) not really that bad, but he plays up the "schoolyard tough" act in school in order to build up his "rep." [[http://hueyfreemanonlyspeaksthetruth.tumblr.com/image/41319998572 Though some strips imply that he doesn't really have to try that hard...]]
* LaserGuidedKarma: While Riley never learns any lessons, he doesn't always escape consequences. He usually serves to be his own downfall and often gets beaten by his grandfather if he pisses him off.
* TheMcCoy
* MistakenForGay: When the closeted gay rapper Gangstalicious starts acting more flamboyant (such as his "Homies Over Hoes" music video, or promoting a feminine-looking fashion line), his fans are all unwittingly copying his mannerisms and clothing...
** A confused Grandad and Ruckus assume that Riley was knowingly cross-dressing on purpose, so they conclude that he's gay.
** When Riley and the Lethal Interjection Crew learn about Gangstalicious' homosexuality, they worry that it makes them seem gay by association.
* NobleMaleRoguishMale: The roguish one to Huey's noble one.
* ObnoxiousSnarker: Is a total smart ass, but is generally more obscene than deadpan.
* RaisedByGrandparents: He and his brother are living with their grandfather Robert.
* RedOni: Red to Huey's Blue.
* {{Schemer}}
* ShakingTheRump: Does this in "The S Word" where Huey lampshades he's doing the "Celebratory Booty Dance".
* SmallNameBigEgo: Oh so much. He thinks that he's way more important than he really is.
* ThisLoserIsYou: Riley embraces every negative stereotype about black youth.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Often.
* ToxicFriendInfluence: Riley likes to associate with known criminals such as Ed Wuncler III and Gin Rummy, which Huey rightly chastises him for. Riley also starts to hang out with another juvenile delinquent named Lamilton Teshawn, [[EvenEvilHasStandards but even he scares him]].
** And to a lesser extent, Riley's friendships with gangsta rappers such as Gangstalicious and Thugnificent's Lethal Interjection Crew. While they're all a bunch of dim-witted hedonists, they're also [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold decent guys at heart]].
* TrashTalk: He will insult anyone and will not care for whatever the response is.
* UngratefulBastard
* VerbalTic: He seems to have picked up a new one lately whenever he mentions something gay, no homo.
* VillainProtagonist: He's only in elementary school, and he's already gotten involved in a lot of street crimes.
* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: In Robert's DaydreamSurprise.
** Although he's actually pretty asexual in both the comic and show. He sees bitches as more of a status symbol than anything. Justified in that he is just a kid attempting to mimic his idols, despite not even being close to puberty yet.
* TheWorfEffect: Even worse then Huey as he has no muscles, isn't trained and his style is just straight up brawling. At the very least, he has some high stamina and can take a lot of punishment. But that just means he get tossed around like a ragdoll.
* [[SiblingYinYang Sibling Yang]]

The grandfather of Huey and Riley. He was a WWII veteran and a Civil Rights activist. He wants to live out his last days comfortably, but has to contend with his grandsons' antics, while his own pursuit of money and women get him into trouble.
----
* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Grandparent]]: Being an old-fashioned parental figure, he believes that beatings are a great way to discipline a bad child.
* AcePilot: He received a medal and flew a "top-secret mission to Germany to save the whole world."
* AdultsAreUseless / [[BumblingDad Bumbling Granddad]]
* AesopAmnesia: Much like Riley, he has trouble learning from his mistakes. This is lampshaded (or perhaps exaggerated) at the end of the third season:
-->'''Granddad:''' Wow, Huey. [[CassandraTruth You were totally right this time]]. [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot Just imagine all the problems we could avoid if we just listened to you]]. Oh well.
* AngryBlackMan: 'Cause he's a GrumpyOldMan.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Robert "Bitches" Freeman.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassGrandpa: Occasionally.
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
** RetiredBadass: He was a Tuskegee Airman during World War II, and also a Civil Rights Movement activist (although he joined reluctantly).
* BeenThereShapedHistory
** Although how much of it is true [[UnreliableNarrator is uncertain, to say the least]]. He definitely was a Tuskeegee Airman and present [[WrongGenreSavvy (albeit deeply unpopular)]] at Rosa Parks' bus protest and the Birmingham marches, definitely ''wasn't'' the UFC light-middleweight champion or a member of G-Unit, and may or may not have gotten into a knife fight with Jesse Jackson.
** Well, actually, the Rosa Parks thing was revealed in an episode that turned out all to be Huey imagining what would happen if Martin Luther King had fallen into a coma and woken up in the year 2000 rather than dying, so that one may not be true, either.
** Turns out he ''was'' a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_Riders Freedom Rider]]...albeit entirely against his will as he got on the wrong bus.
* BerserkButton: Asking him to butter his own popcorn.
* BlatantLies: "I'm gonna go find myself a white man and lie to 'im right now."
* ButtMonkey
* BystanderSyndrome: Prone to this attitude, especially in the comics.
* CasanovaWannabe / DirtyOldMan / KavorkaMan: Despite his old age and fat belly, he never stops chasing after young women. Though something is usually wrong with the women he dates...
** They've included a lazy gold-digging prostitute, several ugly women who pretended to be sexy online, a crazy homicidal martial artist who nearly killed him, a Dominican drug boss, a crazy woman who kidnapped Riley because of his cuteness, a shady doctor who almost harvested his organs, etc. [[ParodySue Ebony Brown]], who seems to be just as perfect as she appears to be, comes as a real surprise; yet Robert still ends up ruining their relationship anyway.
* ConfirmedBachelor: Of the CasanovaWannabe variety. Even on the rare occasion when he finds himself in a relationship with a woman who seems into him, he shows no desire to marry. In the first episode of the animated series, he tells Ed Wuncler Sr. that he believes "all marriage is wrong", although he may have been joking or avoiding the question of his stance on gay marriage or both.
** Although there is passing mention about his (probably deceased) wife of many years.
* CoolOldGuy: More so in the comics.
* DirtyCoward: This is at least implied when he has a nightmare about being chased by an army of Stinkmeaner clones. He abandoned and sacrificed all of his friends and family so he could save his own skin!
* EmbarrassingNickname: Thugnifficent refers to him as "Old Nigga."
* FanDisservice: We frequently see him (semi-)naked.
** NakedPeopleAreFunny: At least when they're censored.
* {{Flanderization}}:
** TookALevelInDumbass: Robert seems to become more impulsively stupid with every season. His mistakes eventually lead him further and further into bankruptcy.
** TookALevelInJerkass: In the animated series.
* FreudianTrio: [[TheKirk The Ego]] to Huey's [[TheSpock Superego]] and Riley's [[TheMcCoy Id]]
* GrumpyOldMan / ScrewPolitenessImASenior
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: During his conflict with Stinkmeaner's clone, he slowly transforms into him by embracing the hatred. Huey only manages to turn him back in just before he killed him again.
* HypocriticalHumor: A true master.
** HypocrisyNod: Especially in the comics - a common gag is for Huey to point out how he's acting foolish or hypocritical, only for Granddad to agree, but reply that since he's in his golden years he doesn't care.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: In the comics, where he simply desires to live his golden years in relaxation.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: In the show, where he's big on appearances and often wants to live the high life.
* ImprobableWeaponUser / WeaponOfChoice: If he needs to fight, it's a good bet that he'll be [[DontMakeMeTakeMyBeltOff using his belt]] as a whip. He mostly just uses it to punish Riley though.
* IndenturedServitude: [[spoiler: In the fourth season, he signs a contract that forces him to work for Ed Wuncler Jr until he pays off the debt on the house.]]
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Tom.
* IWasQuiteALooker: As seen during "Wingmen" and "Freedom Ride Or Die" he was a handsome fella in his day.
* {{Jerkass}}
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sometimes. He does love his grandsons, no matter how much of a pain in the ass they are.
* ManChild: He doesn't really behave himself much better than Riley.
* MeaningfulName: Which Ed Wuncler II [[LampshadeHanging hangs a lantern on]].
* {{Mentor}}: Of a sort to Huey in the comics, where his characterization is that he ''is'' OlderAndWiser, but because he's retired he really doesn't want to have to care. Huey occasionally comes to him for deep conversation, though it's never guaranteed that Granddad will want to get into the situation.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler:He does not even have as much as a welt on him in his final battle with Stinkmeaner.]]
* PyrrhicVictory: [[spoiler:He agrees to spare Stinkmeaner's life to finally gain peace of mind, only to have Stinkmeaner pester him 24/7 outside of his house.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Tom Dubois's Blue
* RefusalOfTheCall: In Season 4, it is revealed that Robert was drawn into the Civil Rights movement against his will after accidentally getting on a bus full of Freedom Riders whilst escaping from a bus station attendant [[spoiler:for using (and messing up) a white men's restroom.]] He was actually attempting to ''escape'' the South and return to Chicago. Once he was on the bus, despite his vehement protests, the protest leader wouldn't let him off, insisting that his people needed him.
* RichesToRags: He was never super wealthy, but was implied to have enough savings and presumably a pension to live quite comfortably in the suburbs as well as constantly going on dates. [[spoiler:In season 4, it turns out the Freemans are now bankrupt, and most of the episodes, so far, have involved Robert participating in a bunch of harebrained schemes in order to clear his debts.]]
* TheScrooge: We don't know exactly how much he's good for, but he's incredibly cheap nevertheless. This is perhaps best demonstrated when he fired the only babysitter capable of handling Huey and Riley just because she left the lights on in the kitchen and used the telephone for five minutes.
* SelfServingMemory
* ShipperOnDeck: Granddad seems to ship Huey and Riley with Jazmine and Cindy respectively, either subconsciously (calling Jazmine Huey's "little friend" and dreaming of Jazmine instinctively hugging Huey when attacked by the [[spoiler:swarm of Stinkmeaners]]), or intentionally (trying to get Riley to show interest in girls).
* SkewedPriorities: This is a common joke with him. For example, when [[spoiler: the Stinkmeaner-possessed Tom]] is choking him, Riley tries to save him by breaking several vases over his head. Grandad is just mad that Riley broke the vases.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Season 4 seems to be solely based around Granddad's personal issues, with Huey only getting a few lines each episode.
* TheStoner: In "Mr. Medicinal" he starts using marijuana, until two convictions, house arrest, and being forced to do an anti-drug PSA as community service force him to stop.
* UnreliableNarrator: It's unknown just how much of his alleged involvement in the Civil Rights Movement actually happened. Creator/WernerHerzog theorized that Robert might be a pathological liar or in the early stages of dementia.
* ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer: Back when he accidentally joined the Freedom Riders, he criticized their pacifism, and decided to fight back against an angry mob.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: With regard to parenting.
--> "You ever try beatin' his ass?"
* WouldntHitAGirl: He forbids Slickback from hitting Cristal in the Freeman house.

!!Uncle Ruckus (No Relation)
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ruckus293421_4863.png]]
->''"There are those of you who say I'm wrong for hatin' niggas. I call y'all ALL hypocrites 'cause each and every one of you can name ten niggas you hate right now if you had to!"''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Gary Anthony Williams

A fat and old black man who seems to work in every conceivable low-wage job. Despite his ethnicity, he is also a loud-mouthed white supremacist.
----
* AesopAmnesia: Whenever it occurs to him that he can be less racist, he forgets all about it.
* {{Badass}}: In one episode, he's shown matching Huey in martial arts skills, which would arguably make him one of the most skilled fighters in the show. In spite of this, he holds that blacks are ultimately inferior in combat to whites.
* BeenThereShapedHistory: He was in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_Riders#Mob_violence_in_Anniston_and_Birmingham Birmingham, Alabama]] when the Freedom Riders were doing their thing.
* BigBad: Can take this role in a few episodes, such as "Or Die Trying".
* BoomerangBigot / PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: The whole purpose of his character. Ruckus is a card-carrying white supremacist who always rants about the inferiority of all non-whites... which would include black people such as himself.
** He also hates homosexuals (though he's not one of them).
* BringMyBrownPants: In "The Story Of Gangstalicious", while at gunpoint.
-->'''Uncle Ruckus:''' (Calmly) Say that again? I couldn't hear you over the sound of me shittin' myself.
* ButNotTooBlack: Despite having the darkest skin of all characters, Ruckus ''really wants to believe'' that he isn't a black man. He often claims to be a white man with a "re-vitiligo" disease that darkens his skin.
** In "The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show", he goes through a DNA test. Ruckus reads the results and finds out that he's "102% African, with a 2% margin of error", [[GoMadFromTheRevelation much to his shock and horror]]. After Ruckus' unsuccessful suicide attempt, a Creator/{{BET}} executive forces the geneticist into redoing the DNA test, so that Ruckus is "actually" 50% Caucasian and he snaps back to normal.
** In "The Color Ruckus", we learn that Ruckus believes he's a white orphan with re-vitiligo, who was raised by a black family. It turns out that his black family is his real family, and his mother lied and made up this story to make him feel special. Even after his father broke the news though, Ruckus continued to be in denial about it.
* CanonImmigrant: He was originally created for the show, but [=McGruder=] added him to the comic in the brief period between the show starting and the comic ending.
* CatchPhrase: He introduces himself as "Uncle Ruckus, no relation." He also claims that "I've got re-vitiligo (it's the opposite of what Creator/MichaelJackson's got)."
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Season 1 actually has moments where he seems completely aware that he's black. Refering to whites as "they" and blacks as "we" is a subtle example.
** Other lines include "I was happy at the back of the bus" and "I would have shoot you myself but I realized the white man got better aim." Not to mention the episode "The Passion of Reverend Ruckus".
* ContinuityNod: He's a reverend again in "Stinkmeaner Strikes Back".
-->'''Uncle Ruckus:''' I am Reverend Father Uncle Ruckus. No relation.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Either Ruckus is aware that he's black, or he's under the delusion that he's actually white.
* TheDragon: To Ed Wuncler II in Season 4. He is hired as an overseer at Freedomland, enthusiastically lording over the slaves. For some odd reason though, he doesn't object to Wuncler enslaving white people as well.
* EnemyMine: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ijFSU1S-3g Briefly formed one with black people in order to finance his movie.]] [[spoiler:However Aaron McGruder failed to get funding for an Uncle Ruckus movie.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's on very good terms with his mother and brothers; it's his father and grandmother he hates ([[AbusiveParents with good reason]]).
* EvenEvilHasStandards: It's shown in "The New Blacks" that he considers mocking or abusing the disabled to be inexcusable.
* FatBastard
* FreudianExcuse: Was raised by an extremely abusive dad who always proclaimed his hatred of white people, as well as a loving mom who idolized Caucasians (and lied that Ruckus was born white). This helped warp Ruckus' mind into the self-hating oaf we know and love.
** Ruckus' father was himself abused by his own asshole mother and racist white men, so he took out his anger on his own children.
* FriendlyEnemy / VitriolicBestBuds: Sometimes he's this with Robert and Tom. Despite his racist views and the verbal abuse they keep slinging at each other because of it, the three sure seem to hang out a lot.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: While drunk, Tom and Robert admit that they don't really like Ruckus much. But of course, when you've got a friend who is bigoted towards his and your own people...
* {{Gonk}}: He's old, obese, balding, and has a glass eye.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Played for laughs and drama.
** [[AbusiveParents Abusive Dad]]: Well, they ''try'' to play it for laughs, but it's not very funny to see how brutally abusive his dad was. He beat the shit out of him ''for having fun and wanting to be a doctor''. No wonder he grew up so messed.
* HisNameReallyIsBarkeep: When they flashback to his childhood, his mother actually calls him Uncle, so "Uncle Ruckus" is actually his full name. It's revealed in "The Color Ruckus" that he's named after his father's uncle. Yes, both the Uncle and the Ruckus part.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: His hatred of blacks and blind love of whites. Not to mention his mother. Not that he could see it anyways.
* HypocriticalHumor: Due to his BoomerangBigot personality.
* IKnowKarate: "You think you're the only one to master the ancient and deadly art of the Nunchaku?"
* {{Jerkass}}: Most of the time.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: At times.
** TookALevelInJerkass: In Season 4. While Ruckus had always been a racist bastard, this trait was somehow worsened; he didn't even get any redeeming moments like in the Season 3 episode "The Color Ruckus".
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[ReturnOfTheJedi Jabba's theme]] plays most of the time he's on-screen from Season 2 onward.
* MadEye: Interestingly enough, this is the only one with color.
* MeaningfulName: ''Uncle Ruckus'' is a combination of [[Literature/UncleTomsCabin Uncle Tom]], [[Film/SongOfTheSouth Uncle Remus]], and Amos Rucker (allegedly a slave soldier who fought for the [[UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar Confederacy]]), creating a black man most enthusiastically subservient to white people.
* NWordPrivileges: No one takes offense to his song "Don't Trust Them New Niggas Over There" in "The Garden Party", or anything else he says because he has these.
-->'''White party guest:''' I think the "N-Word" is okay if ''they'' say it.
** Uncle Ruckus generally relies a lot on N-Word Privileges. If he was a white man, then non-racist audiences wouldn't find his anti-black rants to be so amusing.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He's mastered using nunchucks and even beats ''[[AfroAssKicker Huey]]'' in a fight.
* PassFail
* PetTheDog: In ''A Huey Freeman Christmas'', he comforts Jazmine about Riley's assaults on a MallSanta.
* PoliceBrutality: In "The Block Is Hot", Ruckus calls the police, but they shoot in his direction, and when that doesn't work they beat him with batons. But Ruckus, being Ruckus, actually isn't bothered by this abuse, and he even joins the police force so he can fulfill his desire to do the same to other black guys!
* [[ReligionOfEvil Religion of Hatred]]: In one episode, he starts his own racist offshoot of Christianity, promising anyone who converts to white supremacy ([[BoomerangBigot even if they're non-white like him]]) that they can go to "White Heaven", an afterlife ruled by RonaldReagan. Later, we see him as an exorcist who specializes in dealing with evil black spirits such as Stinkmeaner (though he didn't actually know what he was doing).
* SitcomArchnemesis
* [[StrawCharacter Strawman Political]]: Uncle Ruckus is a satirical spoof of white supremacists and Tea Party conservatives.
* VillainProtagonist: Of "The Color Ruckus", in which he narrates his own [[FreudianExcuse tragic]] [[BackstoryHorror backstory]], explaining how he became the ironic racist that he is now.
* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: Obviously Ruckus doesn't like black women [[spoiler:(except for Ebony Brown)]], and views whiteness as ideal beauty. He's jealous of Tom for marrying Sarah. He also seems to respect Jazmine for being mulatto instead of fully black.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: Subverted. He's holding down ''47 jobs at once''.

!!Michael Caesar
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/caesar32423425_8679.png]]
->''"Remember, the people you want to liberate are still tied to the system. You need big distribution-- make it hip. [...] [[HilariousInHindsight And make it look kinda anime]], like {{Pokemon}}: That's popular."''

Huey's best friend in the comic strip, but is glaringly absent from the animated series.
----
* AdaptedOut: Possibly due to Huey not entirely needing a {{Foil}} for much of the show's run, he has yet to appear thus far.
* BlackAndNerdy: Has just as much casual nerdy knowledge as Huey.
* CelebCrush: Claimed Creator/JenniferLopez was the female ideal of unobtainable beauty and then dumped her off the list because of the movie ''Enough''.
* ClassClown
* TheConfidant: One of the people who will actually listen and care about what Huey has to say, lending an ear to his many conspiracy theories and potentially unpopular opinions, even if he'd rather be doing something less weighty.
* TheConscience: He serves this function particularly when Huey's thoughts or actions threaten to cross a line in some way, reminding him that life doesn't have to be so [[BlackAndWhiteMorality black and white]].
** A more straight-forward example of Caesar playing the part was when Huey tried to write a civil, courteous letter to President G. W. Bush. Whenever he'd type something cynical or rude, Caesar'd steer Huey back in the 'right' direction.
---> ''(Huey begins typing the header to his letter)''
---> '''Huey:''' [-DEAR ILLEGAL AMERICAN REGIME-]--
---> '''Caesar:''' Start over.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DreadlockRasta: Caesar falls into the laid-back, anti-authoritarian group of dreadlock wearers, contrasting his best friend's ultra-serious, militant attitude and afro.
* {{Foil}}: Was introduced as a character with Huey's views and wisdom who was much more laid back about it. This quickly put him into the OnlySaneMan slot.
* FishOutOfWater: Same as the Freeman kids, though he gets used to it a lot faster than either of them do.
* TheGadfly / {{Troll}}: Though he's usually more generally sarcastic, he sometimes clearly says or does certain things just to get a rise out of Huey - sometimes to make a point, sometimes for fun, and it isn't always clear which.
* GenreSavvy
* InnocentProdigy
-->'''Caesar:''' [[LampshadeHanging Not to change subjects, but...]] [[NonSequitur Why are all the cookies on your side of the table?]]
* TheLancer: Caesar functions as Huey's right-hand-man on many an activity, such as being a co-founder to their newspaper. [[{{Foil}} At the same time, he generally challenges the kid's serious nature with a much warmer personality]].
* LastNameBasis: His first name, Michael, is referenced less than a handful of times in the comic strips.
* MeaningfulName: MC.
* MetaGuy: He has a habit of vaguely referencing he and Huey's position as characters, the comic's creator, or the strip itself in meta fashion.
-->'''Caesar:''' Can you believe it's been four years since the last [election]?
-->'''Huey:''' Yeah.
-->'''Caesar:''' Funny. Seems like we haven't aged a day...
* NiceGuy
* ObligatoryJoke: Often, much to Huey's annoyance. Especially since his jokes can come out of [[NonSequitur no-where]] with little-to-no prompt.
* OnlySaneMan: Despite his similar views to Huey's, Huey's serious, mature, politically sapient, and borderline militant persona overlaps Ceaser's more laid-back and anti-authoritarian personality.
* RedOni: Red to Huey's blue.
* SoUnfunnyItsFunny: Most of his jokes fall into this category.
* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: [[http://www.gocomics.com/boondocks/2010/10/03/ Oh Caesar.]]
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: He is categorized this to an extent. His awareness of the absurdities of society matches Huey's, but he still has a childish persona.
* YouNeedToGetLaid: To Condeleeza Rice of all people.
* YourMom: Basically his catch phrase, with varying levels of cleverness.

[[folder:Recurring Characters]]
!!Thomas Lancaster [=DuBois=]
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tom23423423_7719.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Cedric Yarbrough

A black man who "acts white" as much as possible: He's an Ivy Leauge graduate and attorney, married to a white woman, and has no "ebonic" accent. A nice guy, but also a big pushover.
----
* BerserkButton: His NiceGuy demeanor changes very fast if you start talking badly about his daughter or wife.
* ButNotTooBlack: "[[LampshadeHanging Well, actually, I'm more of a]] [[StarbucksSkinScale caramel complexion]]."
** According to a DNA test, Tom is 32.5% Scottish. This would also make his daughter mostly white.
* ButtMonkey / ExtremeDoormat: The guy has practically NO backbone! Possibly due to being traumatized as a child by a prison movie he watched featuring a guy getting sodomized...
* CharacterDevelopment: Tom starts branching out from a prosecutor who just does his job, to a defense attorney that takes cases based on innocence of the client, regardless of the money he's offered. He's also become less of a doormat as he is more prone to swearing when he's angry and calls people out when he feels disrespected.
* ClusterFBomb: In "Ballin'" and "Home Alone".
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass / TookALevelInBadass: In "A Date With The Booty Warrior". He was still cowardly for much of the episode, but he was able to [[spoiler: overcome his fears and defeat the Booty Warrior]].
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Much to his dismay.
* HenpeckedHusband: He feels very insecure around his wife, who in turn feels frustrated by his submissive behavior.
* InelegantBlubbering: Whenever he's forced to confront his fear of prison. A manly crier he is not.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Huey and Robert.
* LovableCoward / NervousWreck: He cries and panics very easily, especially when it comes to marital problems or his phobia of rape.
* MeaningfulName: ''Tom'' as in Uncle Tom, ''[=DuBois=]'' from W.E.B. [=DuBois=].
* NiceGuy: Possibly due to his fear of getting anally violated in prison.
* PrisonRape: His greatest fear is this happening to him.
* RedOniBlueOni: Tom is the Blue to Robert and Huey's Red.
* [[StrawCharacter Strawman Political]]: He and his wife are stereotypical clueless moderate liberals.
* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: In the comics, he is stated to have only dated white women, eventually marrying Sarah.
* WouldntHitAGirl: Something A Pimp Named Slickback calls him out on in a SpoofAesop.

!!Jazmine [=DuBois=]
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jazmine34233_5101.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Gabby Soleil (Seasons 1-3), Kiarah Pollas (Season 4)

The biracial daughter of Tom and Sarah [=DuBois=]. While Huey finds her to be naive and annoying, in the TV show she becomes his only friend.
----
* AccidentalPervert: Poor Jazmine. The first penis she saw belonged to an 80+ year-old man.
* BreakTheCutie: A major reason Huey has for talking to her in the comics, though he doesn't exactly mean to be malicious; he truly thinks she would be better off if she were a cynic like him, so he makes it his mission to tear down her childish beliefs.
* ButtMonkey: In the comic, though she only tends to be treated badly by Huey and occasionally Riley. It seems like, in general, the world enjoys messing with her naivete. In the show, she's more TheChewToy since Huey is a lot less abrasive.
* CheerfulChild / ChildrenAreInnocent: Definitely more innocent than her friends [[CreepyChild Huey]] and [[{{Delinquent}} Riley]].
* DemotedToExtra: In the first two seasons, she would regularly interact with the main characters and even be the focus of a few episodes and plotlines. In the last two, she's lucky to ever get a line.
* {{Fangirl}}: Of Music/{{Usher}}.
* FanOfTheUnderdog: It is no coincidence that she trusts Huey in spite of him being a {{Jerkass}} to her. It is especially prevalent in Season 3 as she is the only person who actually listens to him and has spoken highly of him when even the President of the United States has denounced him.
* FunnyAfro: Makes her insecure. {{Played for laughs}}, naturally.
* {{Hikikomori}}: Once she returns in the comic book, her two-year-long ChuckCunninghamSyndrome is explained as her locking herself in her room ever since 9/11 out of fear of terrorists.
* LuminescentBlush: At the end of "Wingmen".
* MixedAncestry: Particularly in the comics, being a [[ButNotTooBlack mulatto]] gave her a lot of personal confusion.
* MoralityPet: Jazmine is this to Huey, which is weird as he is often the one to tear down any wide-eyed delusions she carries. But as soon as someone tries to exploit her or if she needs help, knowing that helping her would be at the expense of his own interests, Huey usually helps her out.
* NervousWreck: She probably got her insecurity from her father.
* NiceGirl
* SarcasmBlind: Extremely so in the comic, to the point where Huey can say almost anything to her and she'll take it at face value. This combined with her WideEyedIdealist traits make her ''extremely'' gullible (and as a {{running gag}}, very bad at YourMom jokes).
* TokenWhite: Well, about half-white anyway. Besides the puffy afro hair texture and slightly tanned skin, she could probably pass as white.
* VitriolicBestBuds: In a one-sided way with Huey, who is much ruder to her.
* VocalEvolution: Justified, since her voice actress was a little girl when the series began.
* WideEyedIdealist: Serves as a foil to the constantly cynical Huey.

!!Cindy [=McPhearson=]
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cindy4534534_6765.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TaraStrong

A little white girl who "acts black". She befriends Riley.
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: Similarly to Riley, her hair doesn't change color, but it does change styles from a single ponytail to a pair of giant braids. She keeps the HairAntennae, though.
* CharacterExaggeration: In the original comic, she was simply a white student obsessed with black culture and oblivious to Huey's blatant dislike of her. In the show, she's an over-exaggerated wigger.
* CheerfulChild: The comic version is arguably even more cheerful than Jazmine since she doesn't have Jazmine's insecurities or Huey to depress her.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Cindy only appeared in the comic strip for the first two years during the comic's lifespan. The other four years? She dropped off the face of the earth. She made her first appearance in seven years on the show and has been shown to be becoming an EnsembleDarkhorse.
* DefeatEqualsFriendship / FireForgedFriends: With Riley in the cartoon. Even though Riley broke Cindy into tears with a YoMomma routine to beat her at basketball, they seem to have become friends in later episodes.
* DumbBlonde / TheDitz: Not particularly bright in the comic, especially when it comes to things about race. An early RunningGag had Riley use her as a patsy or victim in his schemes, simply because she was so easy to fool.
** She is, however, {{street smart}} in the cartoon, able to organize and lead Girl Scouts like a gang leader. Amusingly, this changes the nature of her dynamic with Riley significantly.
* GenkiGirl: In the comic.
* GirlScoutsAreEvil: She runs her troop like a gang, selling Girl Scout cookies in an underhanded way. Later she helps Riley with his chocolate fundraiser in a similar manner. [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything The whole scheme spoofs the illegal drug trade]].
* InnocentBigot / InnocentlyInsensitive: [[http://hueyfreemanonlyspeaksthetruth.tumblr.com/image/40052056313 Extremely]] [[http://hueyfreemanonlyspeaksthetruth.tumblr.com/image/41157229724 so]]. At least in the comics; this part of her character is phased out in the show. It's implied to be because the only things she knows about black people come from TV and her bigoted father.
* LittleMissBadass: Her first instinct when getting made fun of by [[TheMafia a man in a suspicious black limo]] is to chase him down with a baseball bat, for starters.
* [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy Pretty Fly For A White Girl]]: Parodied.
* TokenWhite
* {{Tomboy}}: Well she is a wannabe gangster who plays basketball. As mentioned above she is a Girl Scout, albeit still acting like a gangster.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In the cartoon, similar to Riley, again due to "thug life" changing since she had a role in the comic.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: As seen in "The Fund-Raiser".

!!Sarah [=DuBois=]
[[quoteright:198:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sarahdubois_3681.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Jill Talley

Tom's white wife. Their marriage is strained because of Tom's phobia of rape.
----
* ArtEvolution: Her hair was originally straighter and shorter.
* {{Fangirl}}: Of Music/{{Usher}}, UsefulNotes/BarackObama, and Pretty Boy Flizzy.
* [[HenpeckedHusband Henpecked Housewife]]: She is often pretty frustrated by Tom's uptightness and awkwardness in public. His obsessive phobia about {{prison rape}} has taken a toll on their marriage.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Sarah and Tom respectively. While Sarah isn't a tomboy by any means, she would at least seem so in comparison to her very unmasculine husband. She's frustrated that he isn't the dominant spouse.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Sort of. In the comic strip she's also an attorney like Tom, but in the TV series she seems to just be a housewife.
* SatelliteCharacter: She's Tom's wife, Jazmine's mother, the Freemans' neighbor, and every episode she's featured in deals with one of those facts.
* TokenWhite
* TookALevelInJerkass: To a major extent in "Pretty Boy Flizzy," where her previous frustration at Tom's stuffiness is exaggerated to unreasonable demands and full-blown self-centered mood-swinging. Likewise, her wandering eye is ramped up to the point of throwing herself at other men and putting down Tom in front of her daughter (though granted, that was while drunk).
* [[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt Where Da Black Men At]]: In the comics, she only dated black men, eventually marrying Tom. She's still openly attracted to other black men, much to Tom's dismay.
* YourCheatingHeart: Subverted. Although Sarah flirts with other men (Usher, Obama, Flizzy) in front of Tom, she never actually commits adultery.
** Although it's a bit complicated. She once unknowingly slept with Stinkmeaner's ghost (who was possessing Tom's body at the time). Did she have sex with one or both men? And she was completely oblivious about the reason that Tom was acting so strange.

!!Otis "Thugnificent" Jenkins

A not-very-bright gangsta rapper who moves into Woodcrest. Riley is his biggest fan.
----
* [[AFatherToHisMen A Bro To His Men]]
* AscendedExtra: Albeit slightly; having only appeared in 3 episodes in Season 2, he appeared in 5 episodes for Season 3.
* AutoTune: Uses it in his album "Mo' Bitches, Mo' Problems." [[Music/KanyeWest Which fails spectacularly]] since he uses it in ''all'' his songs.
* BigDamnHeroes: Even after getting kicked out of Granddad's house, he still managed to come to the rescue in "Fried Chicken Flu".
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He is absent from Season 4.
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Bitches to Rags"
* DrivesLikeCrazy
* EarlyBirdCameo: Kind of. That song "Booty Butt Cheeks" you hear throughout Season 1? He made that.
* FallenOnHardTimesJob: His attempt to sell crack.
* FeigningIntelligence: He unsuccessfully attempts to seem smarter when he supports Barack Obama during the 2008 election. His lack of actual political awareness results in him getting humiliated by Bill Maher on television.
* FireForgedFriends: Gets off to a rocky start with Granddad, but eventually they put aside their differences. This is especially apparent after [[spoiler:Otis gives up his "Thugnificent" persona]].
-->'''Thugnificent:''' Old man, I know I told you to go eat dicks in the past, but you alright with me.
* HiddenDepths
** IMinoredInTropology: In the episode "The Story of Thugnificant," the title character congratulated Huey for his enjoyment of reading. Huey thought it wasn't a big deal, but what he didn't know was that Thugnificent has a bachelor's degree in communications, meaning he does understand the importance of education.
* ImportantHaircut: [[spoiler:After he sells his home]], he loses the "Mickey Mouse" afro.
* IncomingHam: The RunningGag of his arrival being heralded by a glass-shatteringly loud rendition of one of his own songs.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Riley [[spoiler:and later with Granddad]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's an irresponsible idiot, but he's probably one of the nicest characters in the series.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Gets his buddy fired from his job, due to NoSuchThingAsHR.
** And again when he visits an Asian friend for help with his failing career and instantly got it just from simply asking. The thing though is that he brought Ed Wuncler III with him since he thought it was a drug deal. When Ed realized he wasn't getting any money out of it... yeah.
* [[RagsToRiches Rags to Bitches]]: He grew up in the shantytown of [[MeaningfulName Terra-Belle]], Georgia. But then he became a millionaire rapper.[[note]]"[[{{Pun}} Rags to Bitches]]" is the name of one of his albums.[[/note]]
** [[RichesToRags Bitches to Rags]]: He's a good showman but due to trying to preserve his image, [[RichInDollarsPoorInSense he's not the smartest when it comes to money]]. It ultimately derails his music career, though he adapts pretty well to relative poverty again.[[note]]"[[{{Pun}} Bitches to Rags]]" is the name of the episode in which this happens.[[/note]]

!!Leonard
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lenard213123_1891.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' [=DeRay=] Davis

A friend of Thugnificent, and a fellow member of his Lethal Interjection Crew rap group.

* ButtMonkey: Usually the odd-man-out and the butt of jokes, as far as members of the Lethal Interjection Crew go.
* FallenOnHardTimesJob: Working at Wendy's.
* AFriendInNeed: He's the only one left in the Lethal Interjection Crew that sticks around when Thugnificent's money dries up.
* GoodIsDumb: While he's one of the kindest characters in the show, he's not particularly bright.
-->'''Leonard:''' You know what, when I tried [a buffalo wing], I thought to myself, "This tastes like chicken," [[LiteralMinded but the fact it's a buffalo]], I was like, naw, I don't want to say it out loud 'cause y'all gonna think I'm stupid. That's why I ain't get no chicken; I just got the buffalo.
* LovableCoward: He ''will not'' die for his chain.
* NiceGuy
** TokenGoodTeammate: When the Lethal Injection Crew were talking about what they were going to do if their careers fail, they all talk about becoming burglars and drug dealers. Only Leonard talked about getting a paying job, which he was immediately chewed out for.
* OddNameOut: The Lethal Interjection Crew consists of Thugnificent, Macktastic, Flonominal, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg ...and Leonard]].
* TheRuntAtTheEnd
* {{Workaholic}}: He works so much when Thugnificent goes broke in the third season that you hardly see him out of his [[BadJobWorseUniform Wendy's uniform]].
** When he figures out that the mortgage on the mansion is $12,000 a month and his boss won't give him extra hours to cover it, he reasons that he'll try to work his job, do telemarketing, and sell art out of the drive-through window at the same time.

!!Frederick "Gangstalicious"
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gangstalicious345345_9481.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Mos Def

Riley's other favorite rapper, who also happens to be a closet gay man.
----
* ArchEnemy: Has a feud with rival rapper Eat Dirt that turned violent.
* ArmoredClosetGay: [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial And he very adamantly claims to not be gay]].
* BrokenPedestal: Subverted, as Riley says that he's telling "their stories."
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: His music video "Homies Over Hoes" is basically nothing but overt gay themes. Not that any of his fans can tell.
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: His videos make him out to be a lot bigger than he actually is.
-->'''Riley''': Damn, nigga, you short.
* FakeUltimateHero: To Riley, though he gets over it pretty quickly as despite his flaws, Gangstalicious is a great performer and very nice to his fans.
* {{Gayngster}}: He was once in love with a street thug. But their break-up turned violent.
* NiceGuy: His Gangsta persona is a complete act; he's actually a mild-mannered gay man from the Midwest, not at all cut out for the dangerous hardcore gangsta rap scene.
* OnlyAFleshWound: Was shot twice on stage, one of them in his right shoulder, and laid there bleeding out for 45 minutes before anyone thought to call an ambulance. [[UnexplainedRecovery He Got Better]].
* StraightGay: He tries to put on a tough guy gangster image, at least at first...
** CampGay: But in his second appearance, he starts to display some homosexual stereotypes. For example his homoerotic "Homies Over Hoes" song and music video, and he also promotes a fashion line of very feminine-looking clothing, which his fans are completely oblivious to.
* YouAreTheNewTrend: After his extremely successful "Homies Over Hoes" single drops, a lot of people become really into his ridiculous new fashion line.

!!Psycho Star Wars Guy
A ''Star Wars'' fanatic.
----
* DespairEventHorizon: Goes temporarily insane after the release of ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''. Huey has to snap him out of it.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: He's a ''Franchise/StarWars'' enthusiast who dresses like Obi-Wan 24/7, and doesn't seem to have much of a life outside of ''Franchise/StarWars''.
* LiteralAssKicking: Delivers one to Creator/GeorgeLucas at Huey's (joking) suggestion, in revenge over ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''.
--> [[BondOneLiner "May the force of my foot in your behind]] [[AwesomeMoments/{{TheBoondocks}} be with you, always]]."
* LooksLikeJesus: Helped by walking around in a Jedi robe.
* SeriousBusiness: ''Franchise/StarWars''. Sometimes Huey sees eye-to-eye with him on this; sometimes not quite so much.
* TokenWhite: Along with Cindy, one of the only recurring white characters in the comic, and the only one who could actually approach Huey as a friend.

[[folder:Trouble-making Characters]]
!!Ed Wuncler I
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oldwuncler239434_7182.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/EdwardAsner

The wealthiest businessman in Woodcrest. Not surprisingly, his greed and amorality is insatiable.
----
* BigBad: Due to being the most powerful villain in the show, although he only appears in a few episodes.
** BiggerBad: Well he is the man behind his son and grandson, who are also crooks just like him.
* BitchInSheepsClothing
* TheChessmaster
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He's absent from Season 4. However his son Ed II replaces him as the corporate villain.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He owns most of Woodcrest, including the authorities.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: His business tactics in "The Itis" is deliberately played as using drugs and crime to drive down property values on desirable locations.
* EvilPlan: Hatches a few, usually involving money.
* {{Expy}}: Lampshaded InUniverse, where he is described as a [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Mr. Burns knockoff]].
* FatBastard: He personifies the "fat cat capitalist".
* FauxAffablyEvil: He can be very polite, especially to Robert Freeman. He still has zero qualms about cruelly manipulating other people for his own greed.
** The best example of this is when he tricks Jazmine into selling her lemonade stand to him, while promising her a pony. He then orders her to work like a sweatshop laborer, while using loopholes to avoid paying his end of the bargain.
* ForTheEvulz / OnlyInItForTheMoney: Wuncler is probably the richest, most powerful man in the country, but he'll ''still'' pull many messed-up scams and crimes to get more cash. Because shit, you can never have enough, right?
* FriendlyEnemy: He's well-aware that Huey is [[WiseBeyondTheirYears Wise Beyond His Years]], and seems to genuinely like Granddad. Huey mentions that he doesn't think he's racist, just a greedy old man.
* InkSuitActor: Imagine Ed Asner still channeling [[TheMaryTylerMooreShow Lou Grant]], and you wouldn't be too far off.
* {{Jerkass}}: Wuncler has done multiple acts of pure malice throughout the series and he is proud of them.
* KarmaHoudini: You know you're one when even '''the President''' ''personally phones'' the agent holding you at gunpoint to tell him to stand down.
* MeaningfulName: His name refers to the Once-Ler from Dr. Seuss' ''Literature/TheLorax'', who was just as greedy as he is.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: If Ed the Third is UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush, this would naturally make Ed Senior his grandfather, Prescott Bush. Though, ''Wuncler's'' grandfather was Prescott Rothchild Wuncler.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He is racist against Arabs.
* [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections Screw The Rules, I Have Connections]] [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney and Money!]]: His family is stated to have easily bribed the [[DirtyCop local police department]]. And they even have immunity from the ''federal government''.
* TheSociopath
* [[StrawCharacter Strawman Political]]: Some of his rhetoric seems to be conservative/libertarian-based. Since he is a satiric characterization of Prescott Bush, it is kind of expected.

!!Ed Wuncler II
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/new25209_7438.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Sam [=McMurray=]

----
* AnAxeToGrind: Tries to cut off Huey's legs with an axe to make a public example.
* BigBad: Of Season 4.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Comes to Robert with the impression that he wants to help him with his money troubles as soon as possible... all while stealing his stuff, getting him even ''further'' in debt and in the end [[spoiler:having Robert sign himself into slavery]].
* BerserkButton: Do not owe him money.
* CompositeCharacter: He possesses the business-driven attitude and mannerisms of his father. He also possesses characteristics of his son, such as engaging in petty thievery and tendency to commit impulsive acts of violence.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* DisposingOfABody: Leaves one in the Freemans' garage and implies this is the type of work that Robert Freeman will do for him.
* EqualOpportunityEvil: Sort of, in his own twisted way. The Freedomland slaves consist of both black and white people.
* EvilerThanThou: Actually manages to be ''worse'' than his father in Season 4, his business practices and forcing people in debt to him to [[spoiler:sign themselves into slavery]] makes anything Wuncler, Sr. did look like a girl scout patrol by comparison. He doesn't even care that much about collecting his debts; he just likes having people indebted to him.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Barely hides his malice toward his debtors behind a smile and is implied to kill those that make him too angry. He also cares little about actually getting the debt paid off, opting to trick his debtors into further debt or more serious binding contracts to wring out every penny he can get from them.
* KarmaHoudini: While his scheme to enslave his debtors is thwarted, he still manages to escape.
* TheGhost: Played with. Ed Wuncler, Jr.'s existence was implied because Ed Wuncler the III was Ed Wuncler's biological grandson. However, he finally makes an appearance in the fourth season.
* MadeASlave: In "Freedomland", he forces his debtors to role-play as slaves in a 19th century theme park.
* TheMafia: In contrast to his son's wannabe gangster attitude, Ed Wuncler, Jr. acts more like a "made man", showing up to places in a white suit and committing crimes well-associated with the Mafia such as extortion, loan sharking, and financial blackmail.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Continuing from his son and father, Ed, Jr. would be UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush.
* NWordPrivileges: Gives himself these, since he's a Wuncler.
-->Robert Freeman, my nigga! Can I say that? Yes, I can!
* [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections Screw The Rules, I Have Connections]] [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney and Money!]]
* TheSociopath
* WhiteGangBangers: Though more like a mobster and less like a street gangster.
* WouldHurtAChild: Has no problem attempting to slice off Huey's legs simply for opposing his slavery park.

!!Ed Wuncler III
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ed2934823_9183.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Charlie Murphy

The youngest (and dumbest) member of the Wuncler clan. After returning from the Iraq War, he and his best friend Gin Rummy commit a series of petty crimes.
----
* AxCrazy: Mostly in terms of how he thinks outright sociopathic behavior is all in good fun.
* BringMyBrownPants: His time in Iraq... good God.
** To be precise, he soiled himself at least a dozen times, the other members of his unit called him "Stinkbomb," and he was eventually kept from joining on patrols because the enemy could smell him coming.
* CatchPhrase: "(What the) fuck y'all lookin' at?"
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome / WhatHappenedToTheMouse: He's last seen in the Season 3 finale, [[spoiler: where he's being held hostage by Jack Flowers]]. We never know what happens to him, as he isn't seen or heard from at all in Season 4.
* ComedicSociopathy
* EvilRedhead
* FailedASpotCheck: Ed takes this to truly impressive levels. While trying to kidnap Oprah, Ed assaults the wrong bookstore and mistakenly takes Maya Angelou, even though one had a large crowd of people outside and a large sign saying "Welcome Oprah". Another time, when Riley tries to get his help in dealing with a bully, Ed kidnaps the wrong kid... despite the fact that Riley gave him a picture.
* FearlessFool: He invites Riley to test his ballistic vest with live ammo while he's wearing it, wanders in full view through raging gunfights [[GunsAkimbo firing]] [[GangstaStyle wildly]] [[ATeamFiring at nothing]], and seems to forget that taking both hands off the steering wheel to shoot out of a moving car is a bad idea, among other things. He's really, ''really'' lucky to be alive at this point.
* IdiotHoudini / KarmaHoudini: Due to his grandfather's protection and being viewed as a SociopathicHero in-series.
** Possibly subverted in "It's Goin' Down", [[spoiler: where Ed III is last seen being held hostage by Jack Flowers. We don't know what happens to him afterwards.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Hoo boy.
* LaughablyEvil: He isn't exactly competent. It's surprising that he's even still alive. He's mainly dangerous because he's so wildly reckless with his weapons, and his grandfather bails him out of any possible incarceration.
* MotorMouth: Nobody does rambling anecdotes quite like Charlie Murphy.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Meant as a parody of UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush, being destined for greatness simply because his family is rich.
* PetTheDog: There are subtle moments where he's shown to be not that bad of a guy. Dimwitted, insane, violent, pompous, foul-mouthed, spoiled, incoherent, and craven... but not that bad.
* PocketProtector: His big "W" medallion has spared him from death on several occasions.
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy / WhiteGangBangers: Despite being a rich white guy, he acts like a black gangster.
* RunningGag: Will generally find some way to get shot in the chest (surviving due to his vest).
* [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections Screw The Rules, I Have Connections]] [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney and Money!]]
* SeinfeldianConversation: Which he [[LampshadeHanging hangs a lantern on]].
* StupidCrooks: Ed and Rummy usually botch their crimes hilariously. [[NotSoHarmlessVillain They still prove to be a menace to society though.]]
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Rummy.
* TooDumbToLive: But he always survives because of his {{bulletproof vest}} and [[IdiotHoudini idiot immunity]].
* TriggerHappy: He always shoots first and asks questions later.
* UpperClassTwit: A good example of how money doesn't buy class.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: In "A Date With The Health Inspector", Ed and Rummy get away with robbing a convenience store, because it seemed that the owners were terrorists (or were mistaken for terrorists, it wasn't made clear who they really were). They were painted as heroes afterwards.
* WouldHurtAChild: He's willing to kidnap and torture a kid if someone asks him to do it.

!!Gin Rummy
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rummy43251_1624.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SamuelLJackson

Ed III's best friend. Much like him, he's an ex-soldier and a "wigger" criminal.
----
* AffablyEvil
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome / WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Much like his best friend Ed III, he's nowhere to be seen in Season 4.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* ComedicSociopathy
* ConspiracyTheorist
* FeigningIntelligence: Well he is slightly smarter than Ed, though that's really not saying much.
* IdiotHoudini / KarmaHoudini: Same as Ed. Possibly subverted in "It's Goin' Down".
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: When Robert is trying to solve his problems about his alleged son Lando, Rummy keeps suggesting to kill him.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Meant as a parody of Donald Rumsfeld.
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy / WhiteGangBangers: Despite being a rich white guy, he acts like a black gangster.
* [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections Screw The Rules, I Have Connections]] [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney and Money!]]
* SeinfeldianConversation: Which [[LampshadeHanging he hangs a lantern on]].
* SophisticatedAsHell
* StupidCrooks: Ed and Rummy usually botch their crimes hilariously. [[NotSoHarmlessVillain They still prove to be a menace to society though.]]
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Ed.
* TooDumbToLive: But survives.
* TriggerHappy: He always shoots first and asks questions later.
* UpperClassTwit: A good example of how money doesn't buy class.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: See Ed III's example above.

!!Colonel H. Stinkmeaner
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stinkmeaner342343_1877.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Cedric Yarbrough

An old and blind black man with a sadistic sense of humor. He starts a legendary feud with Robert Freeman, which results in his accidental killing of Stinkmeaner. Afterwards though, Stinkmeaner escapes from Hell and haunts Robert as a ghost. He later gets cloned for some reason.
----
* AnAxeToGrind: Uses this while in Tom's body to try to kill Granddad.
* AssholeVictim: When Grandpa accidentally kills him. Lampshaded when Huey states that the world is probably better off without him, even though the Freeman family mourn him anyway.
* BackFromTheDead: Sort of happened once when he possessed Tom, but now Season 4 has confirmed that he is indeed back ''again'' via cloning.
* {{Badass}}: Well sort of...
** HandicappedBadass: Subverted in his first appearance. When Stinkmeaner trips Robert and beats him with his cane, Huey assumes that he must be some kind of [[DisabilitySuperpower blind yet talented martial artist]]. It turns out that Stinkmeaner was just lucky that time, as during the second fight he stood no chance at all against Robert.
** LikeABadassOutOfHell / TookALevelInBadass: However while Stinkmeaner was damned in Hell, he ''literally'' took TrainingFromHell and learned how to fight an army of demons. The Devil was so impressed that he releases him from Hell for revenge. So when he possesses Tom's body, he proves to be a capable threat to the Freemans.
*** Later, his clone seems to not only be an expert martial artist as well, but also possesses enhanced strength.
* BlindBlackGuy
* BloodKnight: Really enjoys Nigga Moments.
* BoomerangBigot: While he hates everyone, he hates black people slightly more than everyone else.
* CameBackStrong: Initially just a hateful old man who managed to get lucky in a single fight. When he comes back from Hell, though...
** His clone is even stronger.
* CloningBlues: Subverted, as his clone doesn't really feel any different knowing he's a clone, only that he's alive and the other guy is dead.
* DemonicPossession: Stinkmeaner's ghost rises out of Hell to possess Tom. And then Ruckus attempts an exorcism on him.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Stinkmeaner called {{Satan}} himself a "bitch-ass nigga".
* DrivesLikeCrazy: [[SarcasmMode In his defense]], have you tried driving while blind?
* EvilCripple: He doesn't care that driving while blind may endanger innocent bystanders.
* EvilOldFolks / GrumpyOldMan / ScrewPolitenessImASenior: Though he was just as nasty when he was young.
* FateWorseThanDeath: He may be in Hell, but it's better than being in jail.
* ForTheEvulz: The sole motivation behind his ''very breathing''.
* {{Jerkass}}: The biggest example in the series. He puts Ed Wuncler to shame.
* KarmaHoudini: Big time before getting his comeuppance, as shown that death cannot stop a nigga moment (something that [[InLoveWithYourCarnage he enjoys]]) but peace and/or jail time will.
* LargeHam: It's especially hilarious when his spirit possesses the far more mild-mannered Tom.
** EvilIsHammy
* LaughablyEvil: He may be one of the biggest assholes around, but he sure is hilarious to watch.
* MadeOfEvil
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant
* OurDemonsAreDifferent / OurGhostsAreDifferent: Stinkmeaner's disembodied soul can qualify for both.
* ThePowerOfHate: He owes his long life to his "love of hatred".
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: When Stinkmeaner's soul escapes from Hell, he plans to get back at Robert by murdering him, but first he trolls a lot of people along the way.
** Subverted with Stinkmeaner's clone, who never knew the original Stinkmeaner nor Robert Freeman. The clone just thinks his only purpose in life is to be as annoying as his predecessor.
* {{Sadist}}: He lives for making others suffer.
* TheSociopath: While narrating his backstory, Huey makes it clear that Stinkmeaner was always rotten and never cared about other people.
* {{Troll}}: What he does for a living.
* [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch This Is For Emphasis, Bitch-Ass Nyukka!]]
* VerbalTic: '''BITCH-ASS NYUKKA!'''
* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: While possessing Tom, he takes advantage of it by having sex with Sarah.
* WouldHurtAChild: Had no problem fighting Huey and Riley when they tried to exhort his spirit out of Tom.

!! A Pimp Named Slickback

->''"Let us pray the Pimp's Prayer. Lord, please pray for the soul of this bitch and guide my pimp hand and make it strong, Lord, so that she might learn a ho's place. Amen."''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Katt Williams

[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin A Pimp Named Slickback]]. He encourages misogyny wherever he goes.
----
* AccidentalMisnaming / InsistentTerminology: [[RunningGag "No! It's 'A Pimp Named Slickback!' Say it with me!"]]
* CatchPhrase: Need to correct every character he interacts with. His name is A Pimp Named Slickback.
* InkSuitActor: He's based on Katt Williams' character "Money Mike" in the ''Film/{{Friday}}'' film series.
* {{Jerkass}}: He IS a pimp after all.
* LeanAndMean
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Everything he does is motivated by money.
* PimpDuds
** CoolShades: Tinted purple to match his suit, even.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He's very misogynistic. But would you expect any better from a pimp?
* PurpleIsPowerful
* SmokingIsCool: He smokes. He's cool.
* WouldHitAGirl: If only 'Rarely Considers ''Not'' Hitting A Girl' were a trope, he'd be that too. He regards this as normal and something every man should be doing as often as is necessary. His reaction when Tom Dubois refuses to consider hitting his wife CrossesTheLineTwice:
--> '''A Pimp Named Slickback:''' It's okay, Tom. We all got phobias.

!!Bushido Brown
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bushido3948234_4073.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Cedric Yarbrough, later Creator/MichaelJaiWhite

A legendary swordsman, martial artist, and professional bodyguard. He was hired by Oprah Winfrey, and later by Robert Freeman.
----
* AfroAsskicker
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: ''Very'' arrogant.
--> '''Robert Freeman:''' Did you just tell me to wipe your ass?
* AwesomeMcCoolname
* {{Badass}} He can back up his arrogance.
** MemeticBadass: InUniverse, his reputation is greatly exaggerated. He's still quite possibly the best fighter on the show. He's also one of two notable characters in the whole show to have fought in the Kumite ([-[[RunningGag HU-CHYA!]]-]).
* {{Expy}}: Of 1970s Martial Arts film star Jim Kelly.
* InsistentTerminology: Grand''master'' Bushido Brown.
* {{Jerkass}}: In addition to being an egotist, he charges Robert ridiculously high fees, and forces him to buy things for him.
* OccidentalOtaku: Aside from the obvious, his demands in return for helping the Freemans in Season 3 include large amounts of sushi and one of those "Japanese butt-cleaning toilets."
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: He's a professional bodyguard who demands a high paycheck if you need to hire him.
* [[spoiler:OffWithHisHead: He loses his head when fighting the Hateocracy.]]

!!Luna
[[quoteright:197:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luna3424324_1811.png]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Aisha Tyler

Luna was briefly Robert's girlfriend, but she turned out to be a deadly martial artist who was emotionally unstable. She doesn't take his rejection well...
----
* AbusiveParents: Her father would constantly beat her mother right in front of her, even over a piece of chicken. Unfortunately, Luna suffered the same type of abuse in her previous relationships.
* AndShowItToYou: Did this to a guy back in the Kumite ([-[[RunningGag WA-TA!]]-]), all completed with this line:
--> [[MortalKombat '''FINISH HIM!''']]
* AxCrazy: ''Oh yes''.
* {{Badass}}: She beats the utter shit out of Huey.
* BerserkButton: Any time she thinks that a man has wronged her somehow. She'll turn violent in retaliation to DomesticAbuse or [[DisproportionateRetribution getting rejected and lied to]].
* BrokenBird
* CuteAndPsycho
* CuteBruiser
* DarkAndTroubledPast: "Troubled" would be an understatement for this girl; aside from being RaisedByWolves, Luna has suffered every type of abuse in every relationship she's been in. It doesn't help that she grew up in a broken home with an abusive father.
* DarkActionGirl
* DisproportionateRetribution: Like her mother, Luna was severely abused over the slightest things, whether the cooking was cold and the laundry was done wrong.
** Her friend Nicole doesn't help, either; she suggested that Luna should just outright ''kill'' Granddad just for cutting their weekend short.
--> '''Nicole:''' Now, remember, this is not your fault. This man took your weekend from you. Two days you'll never get back! You gotta kill him.
* DomesticAbuse: Suffered from it at the hands of her father and previous boyfriends.

* SheFu: She beats the living shit out of Huey, chokes out Granddad, and tosses Tom across the room by the neck with her legs.
** WaifFu: Luna is also much stronger than she looks, as she is seen a flashback beating the crap of a guy three times her size in the Kumite ([-[[RunningGag HIYAA!]]-]) flashback and ''rips his heart right out of his chest''. She also laments wiping the floor with Huey by ''punching a hole in the wall''.
