Characters: Viewtiful Joe
A compilation of the characters from the Viewtiful Joe series. HENSHIN-A-GO-GO, BABY!


Viewtiful Joe

The main hero of the game, Joe was an average person till he took Silvia to the movies. After Silvia is kidnapped, Joe is similarly taken into Movie Land where the spirit of Captain Blue trains him to become Viewtiful Joe.

Sexy Silvia

The female lead of the series; Damsel in Distress in the first, Action Girl in the second. She has a very close relationship with Joe, even though his fanboyism for Captain Blue movies leaves a lot to be desired for Silvia's romantic moments. It turns out she's Captain Blue's daughter and hasn't seen him in a long time.

Captain Blue

The titular hero of the Captain Blue movie that Joe and Silvia watch. After being defeated, his spirit lives on to teach Joe the ways of becoming a super hero. Except this is all a big lie. Blue is actually the villain of the movie, having seen that being a hero has become dreadfully boring. Joe does bring him to his senses and Blue returns to normal, only to be rendered inactive for the majority of the second game due to being turned into one of the seven Rainbow Oscars.

Captain Blue Jr.

A Canon Immigrant from the anime who later got to be in Red Hot Rumble, Jr. was meant to succeed Captain Blue as the role of a super hero, but Joe just happened to become The Chosen One instead, much to Jr.'s dismay. Not wanting to feel forgotten, Jr. is very knowledgeable in the ways of becoming a hero unlike Joe and so he tasks himself to make Joe do what he needs to do besides goofing off, specifically saving Silvia. At the start of the second season, Jr. does get a V-Watch, or rather, V-Yoyos.

Joe's Family

Jet Black

An old friend of Silvia's dad who used to work together with him, father to Joe. He is the one who actually owns the cinema Joe and Silvia attend and helps the couple in rescuing Captain Blue from Gedow's hands. He is in truth the Big Bad of Gedow, secretly sabotaging the two whenever he needs to while appearing clumsy.

Joe and Jasmine's mother, a famous actress who passed away long before the start of the series.

Voiced by: Hynden Walch


Joe's little, slightly mature sister and Jet's daughter who wishes to become a great actress like Junko. In Double Trouble!, she is just starting her career until Madow steals the film. Instead of letting Joe handle things, she gives chase.

Dark Emperor, King Mundus

  • A God Am I: Duh.
  • The Bus Came Back: A rather dramatic reveal.
  • The Corrupter: For Captain Blue in Dante's story.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He planted a "seed" inside Trish, just in case he ended up getting sealed. Trish experiencing emotions was the trigger to cause the seed to weaken the seal that was placed on him at the end of the first game.
  • Demonic Possession: He does this with Captain Blue.
  • Revenge: Against Dante and Trish, but also against Eva, whose soul is locked in Dante's amulet. Mundus actually sees Eva — the party responsible for numerous events throughout the series (Dante's revival when killed in the demon attack on his family as a child, Nelo Angelo's violent reaction to Dante's half of the Perfect Amulet, Trish's resurrection at the end of DMC, etc.) — as his real enemy, elevating her role in the original game from a primary motivational factor for her son to a three-way combination of Big Good, The Chessmaster, and Guile Heroine.
    Mundus: "The real enemy was you, Eva!"
  • Walking Spoiler: The character's involvement in Dante's story is unexpected, to say the least.
