Your guide to Wander, Sylvia, and the beings they meet on their travels. '''Due to some guest characters being {{Walking Spoiler}}s, beware of unmarked spoilers.'''



->'''Voiced by:''' Jack [=McBrayer=]\\
'"When I see someone who's in needin', I just gotta help!"''

Wander is the main character of the show. He's a little orange furry guy who wants to befriend everyone he meets. Sylvia is his best friend, and the feeling is mutual. Wander's personality drives him compulsively to be helpful. His recklessness and impulsiveness often gets him (or Sylvia, or far more often ''both'') in trouble, but they usually come through in the end, whether by karma or by his cunning wit.
* TheAce: Albeit one who doesn't seem to notice that he's the ace, or would even care if he did. Season 2 implies that he's this because of a LOT of practice.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: He has a habit of speaking like this, especially as his Boy Wander persona.
* {{Adorkable}}: Being voiced by [[Series/ThirtyRock Jack McBrayer]] only makes him more Adorkable.
* AllLovingHero: Is friendly to everyone, ''even'' the baddies. Averted in "The Helper" when he is actually against Hater and tries to stop him for the first time. However at that point, he had gone just a little bit crazy from helping withdrawal.
** Averted again in "The Boy Wander" where we meet Dr. Screwball Jones, the one villain Wander treats like an actual villain.
* AmbiguouslyBi: He's ''extremely'' affectionate and quite touchy-feely, which sort of makes it hard to tell where -- if ''anywhere'' -- his interests lie.
* AppropriatedAppellation: His real name is unknown, and he generally goes by whatever term people choose to call him, whether it be Wander or [[spoiler: Tumbleweed]].
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: In "The Prisoner", after outwitting and evading Peepers for the entire rest of the episode, he manages to get tricked into a cell because he can't resist following the glowing dot from a blaster's laser sight and trying to catch it.
* AudienceSurrogate: According to WordOfGod, he's meant to represent the type of person any of us can become.
* BadassAdorable: Defending the galaxy with the [[ThePowerOfFriendship POWER]] [[ThePowerOfLove OF LOOOOOVE!]]
* BadassInDistress: Is very strong, fast, agile and capable of handling himself, but many times Sylvia has to save him from danger.
* BadassPacifist: As demonstrated in "The Troll" in which he defeats the titular Jerkass by simply kicking back and ignoring his insults.
** He's also shown to be very cunning, and often uses his wits to manipulate his enemies and get himself out of trouble.
* BagOfHolding: Wander's hat can store everything he owns, and seemingly conjure anything else he might need (but not necessarily what he wants). [[spoiler: Turns out it's a semi-sentient magical artifact that can conjure just about anything. It can be forced into taking requests, but hates being used this way. It's why Wander stole it from its previous owners and keeps it on his head, since he believes that's where it's safest. He also took time to gain its trust and friendship, allowing it to choose what and when to give items, though it will take requests (such as giving Wander his banjo when he wants it).]]
* BeatItByCompulsion: Obsessive-compulsive type. He's incapable of not being helpful, even when it's against his best interests. The Watchdogs exploit this in "The Fugitives" to get him to reveal his locations. In "The Nice Guy", his need to be helpful keeps him from getting a drink Sylvia wants, which causes him a lot of distress.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He can be surprisingly manipulative and clever, in spite of his goofiness and idealism.
* BigEater:
** In "The Greatest," he wolfs down lots of hot dogs for a contest (against Lord Hater).
** In "The Lonely Planet" he sure puts away a lot of pancakes, and pie-- so much that he looks pregnant by the time he's finished.
** In "The Tourist" he wolfs down the Galaxy's Biggest Hoagie before Sylvia even gets to take a bite, depriving her of dinner.
** In "The Day", he sleeptalks of glowing red cookies and evil pineapple kings, and Sylvia puts strange food-related dreams into his head, such as pie monkeys needing ballet lessons, cheese towers turning into narwhal bacon, and three noodles considering buying pleated khakis, to name a few.
* BigGood: "The Little Guy" indicates that Wander and Sylvia are this without even really trying to be, or at least that Hater ''thinks'' they are. Simply by spreading good and kindness around wherever they go, the two of them have become a force for good that's singlehandedly thwarting Hater's plan to fill the universe with "fear and hate". According to Peepers, Hater believes that the only reason good still exists in the galaxy is because Wander still exists - hence the two of them being public enemies #1.
** Even moreso in Season 2: By now Wander and Sylvia are actually rather famous, and there's even stories and folklore about the two of them and the good they've done. "The Secret Planet" reveals that Wander's heroic deeds are well-known and Sylvia's mother keeps a wall in the house full of news articles about their good deeds. "The Legend" takes this one step further by revealing that Wander is actually a LEGENDARY hero, whose heroic exploits over the centuries have become ShroudedInMyth.
* BreakTheCutie: Several episodes in Season 1 are dedicated to challenging his belief that it "never hurts to help".
** Suffers an increasingly worse case throughout the Dominator arc, as he's forced to confront the fact that Lord Dominator is genuinely a bad person who doesn't want or need his help. Dominator also tries to invoke this in order to break his spirit in "The End of the Galaxy". [[spoiler: She fails]]
* CannotKeepASecret: In "The Picnic", he accidentally (and very loudly) blabs about the [[BizarreAlienBiology embarrassing bodily functions]] of Sylvia's species to Lord Hater, Emperor Awesome, and their entire armies.
* CartoonCreature: He can't really be identified, and its unknown if he is part of a species or unique. The season 2 promo calls him a "furry orange spoon", and Sylvia's brothers think he's a monkey, cat, or a monkey-cat.
* CatchPhrase: "Never hurts to help!"
** "Folks call me 'Wander'." when introducing himself.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTRMKwz8YOs "Galactic Adventures" teaser]] hints that he might have this.
** Confirmed in "The Fugitives"; trying to resist helping others appears to cause Wander great stress.
** Further confirmed in "The Nice Guy"; even when there isn't someone visibly in trouble/need, the possibility or implication of it will still make Wander go out of his way to help.
** Even ''further'' confirmed in "The Helper", where the concept of an entire day (or an entire planet) where absolutely no one needs him to do anything is enough to drive him completely out of his mind. The boy is ''compelled'' to assist.
* CloudCuckooLander: Oh yeah.
** TheCloudCuckooLanderWasRight: Frequently. His naive idealism has led to him doing things like giving gifts to all of the Watchdogs, with labels saying they were from Lord Hater, in hopes it will cause them to be nicer. It worked.
* CutenessProximity: Very prone to this.
* FatalFlaw: Temptation. Whether it be not helping people, not partying, or even not looking in a box, Wander's self-restraint is very weak.
* {{Flanderization}}: His idealism and optimism is given a significant boost in season two. This is most notable when he tries to pair up Lord Hater and Lord Dominator, believing that love will cause both of them to give up being evil. He never considers that (as Sylvia points out) the two of them could just decide to conquer the galaxy together instead.
* FluffyTamer: Zig-zagged. While his FriendToAllLivingThings status lets him befriend most creatures, such as the animals in "The Breakfast" and the Pit Monster in "The Birthday Boy", there are creatures like the Doom Dragon in "The Egg" and Captain Tim that are too dangerous for him to tame.
* TheFool: Seems to have shades of this, although Creator/CraigMcCracken [[WordOfGod has hinted that]] he is [[ObfuscatingStupidity actually pretty clever]]. This "foolish cleverness" shows somewhat in "The Greatest," where rather than being dimwitted it seems more like he just doesn't care about anything but enjoying life, not even an army of evil minions. He's able to use his brains and his friendliness to convince Hater's army go AWOL and go to a fair, defeat Hater's right hand man with excessive fun, and trick Hater into overcompetitive-ing himself into a meltdown... and the whole time never quite seems to grasp [[EvilOverlord what Hater was actually trying to do]]. As a general rule, Wander's savviness varies with how idealistic he's feeling. When blinded by cuteness, as seen in "The Egg" and "The Pet" he tends to put himself and others in danger. When he's up against something he knows is dangerous, like Lord Hater or The Troll, he's more in control of his ditzy tendencies, though sometimes that can backfire on him too, as seen in "The Bad Guy".
** "The Big Day" best illustrates his dynamic. In a few seconds, he is able to come up with a plan to stall Hater and prevent his own destruction. However, towards the end of the episode, after seeing all the hard work Hater put in, he completely abandons the original plan, leaving Sylvia to snap him out of it.
* ForHappiness: This is pretty much Wander's motivation for everything he does. He wants to make everyone happy and have fun.
* FragileSpeedster: As demonstrated in "The Fugitives". He's very fast [[GlassCannon and strong]], but he was easy to catch in that episode.
* FreakOut: When he loses his hat in "The Bad Hatter", he goes ''nuts!''
* FreudianExcuse: In "The Wanders" it's revealed [[spoiler: the reason he wants to help people is because he knows what it's like to be helpless.]]
* FriendToAllChildren: Wander shows a great fondness towards children, which was explored in "The Egg" and "The Toddler".
* FunPersonified: He's a NiceGuy with the amazing ability to have a good time wherever he goes. By way of this alone, he is able to defuse Hater's villainous machinations without antagonizing the guy at all, though this infuriates Hater anyway.
* GoodCannotComprehendEvil: [[ZigZaggingTrope Goes both ways]], in that Wander is aware that evil beings exists but doesn't stop him from attempting to befriend them anyway. Even though later on, he comes to terms that some villains like Dr. Screwball and Lord Dominator aren't worth befriending. In the latter's case, Wander is insistent in the second season finale [[spoiler: in reforming Dominator, despite his full attempts, he finally gave up after Sylvia persuades him to stop.]]
* GoodFeelsGood: One of his reasons for being so helpful all the time. See the spoiler space under FreudianExcuse for the other reason.
* GuileHero: Occasionally peeks out from under the lazy idiot disguise. Being a BadassPacifist, he has a tendency to rely on his wit to get him out of scrapes.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: He wears a hat, shoes and socks. That's it.
* {{Hammerspace}}: He's known to hold ''loads'' of things in his hat. Whenever Wander is about to sing he pulls his banjo out of nowhere; sometimes it fits in his hat, too.
* HeavySleeper: Shown in "The Day"; [[spoiler: according to Sylvia, Wander can sleep through anything, and he does in fact sleep through the entirety of the episode and all of the shenanigans involved]].
* TheHero: He is the main character and has done many heroic deeds by helping people everywhere in the galaxy. His feats are legendary, and people tell stories about him, as shown in "The Legend."
* HeroicBSOD:
** He suffers of a brief one in "The Fugitives", when he finds out Sylvia abandoned him and the Watchdogs caught him when he was helping people. It takes him smelling a stink coming from a manhole and Sylvia's arrival to snap him out it.
** He has another one in "The Good Deed" when after another failed attempt at helping someone causes a missile to launch toward the sun. Wander lets himself sink into a mud puddle until Sylvia snaps him out of it.
** Sylvia tries to keep him from falling into this in "The Flower" after they witness [[spoiler: Dominator's near-complete destruction of the Galaxy. However, it's ultimately averted as Wander states that even though he WAS sad about it, he hadn't lost hope.]]
* HiddenDepths: "The Wanders" implies that [[spoiler: the reason he's so compassionate is because he feels helpless himself, and judging by the way he recoils when Sylvia tries to re-merge his helpless side he may, on some level, hate that part of him.]]
** On a more comedic note, "The Matchmaker" reveals he loves old timey candlestick making.
** He can also play a wide variety of musical instruments, such as the piano, the saxophone, the electric guitar, and, of course the banjo.
* HomelessHero: In "The It", it's mentioned by Peepers that Wander doesn't have a house. He even mentions in "The Family Reunion" that he and Sylvia live "wherever the stars take them", suggesting he might be orphaned.
* IHaveManyNames: He seems to actually just go by [[AppropriatedAppellation whatever name people feel like calling him]]. In another time and place, [[spoiler:people called him Tumbleweed.]]
* IdeaDing: Wander makes the ding himself whenever he thinks of something.
* IdealHero:
-->'''[[https://twitter.com/CrackMcCraigen/status/644543372061884416 Craig McCracken]]:''' Hater represents who we are, Wander represents how we wish we could be.
* IdiotHero: In some episodes. In others, he seems more oblivious than stupid.
* ImmortalImmaturity: [[spoiler: "The Waste of Time" reveals that he's over a thousand years old, but he is still a childlike goofball.]]
* ImpracticalMusicalInstrumentSkills: He's sometimes shown to play his banjo with only one hand strumming, without holding it even though it doesn't having a visible strap.
* IncomingHam:
-->'''Wander:''' IT'S ME, WANDER! ARE ''YOU'' HERE TO WATCH THE PLANETS ALIGN TOO?! LOOK! [[HammerSpace *pulls basket from hat*]] I EVEN PACKED A PICNIIIIIIIIIIC~
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: As an eternal optimist who sees the good in everyone, Wander will stop at nothing to help even the cruelest of villains find their way onto the path of good.
* InexplicablyAwesome: In the creator's [[https://twitter.com/CrackMcCraigen/status/638898535996370944 own words]], "I feel the mystery of Wander makes him more magical."
* {{Keet}}: Wander is very enthusiastic, cheerful, and loud.
* KarmicTrickster: Although he doesn't seem to be aware of this.
* LargeHam: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PysteqOXj-Q Yep.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: An upbeat banjo tune, referencing his positive attitude and signature instrument.
* LivingLegend: The many good deeds and heroic acts he has performed throughout the centuries have earned him the moniker "The Hero of Legend".
* LoveFreak: Seems to be this.
* MagneticHero: His selfless and good-natured personality has made him well liked across the universe.
* ManChild: Not as bad as Lord Hater's PsychopathicManchild status.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Sweet, free-spirited Wander as opposed to tough, down-to-earth Sylvia.
* MeaningfulName:
** He's an interstellar traveler who goes wherever the stars take him.
** Also has a tendency to wander off from Sylvia during her many close-up speeches.
** It's revealed in "The Waste of Time" that [[spoiler:he chose his name after Sylvia referred to him as a "wandering weirdo".]]
* MellowFellow: Alternates between this and {{Keet}} as part of his relaxed, positive outlook on life.
* MoralityPet: To Sylvia. In "The Rider", Sylvia admits that being friends with Wander makes her want to be a better person.
** May qualify as MoralityChain as it's revealed that it was his influence which turned Sylvia away from being a bounty hunter.
* MotorMouth: In his manic moments.
* MysteriousPast: We never learn his backstory during the show and nobody in-universe seems aware of where he came from. The only hints we get are [[spoiler: that he suffered from feelings of helplessness in some way and he's ''much'' [[TimeAbyss older than he looks]].]]
* NiceGuy: The promos even call him "The friendliest face in outer space!"
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: During the episode "The It" Wander attempts to distract Hater with a game of tag. And it works until Peepers realizes he can use Hater being "It" to chase the other villains off their planets and take them over. And then, when Hater absent-mindedly high fives one of the watchdogs, the role of it is passed on and gives rise to a new force of evil in the galaxy...Ted from accounting.
* NiceHat: His BagOfHolding. It also doubles as a sleeping bag. In ''The Hat'' it is revealed to be the only sane man or fashion accessory. It's also apparently, ''[[AnimateInanimateObject a living sentient]].''
* TheNoseless: Doesn't appear to have a nose despite being able to smell things.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Wander is actually more than clever enough to outwit the villains he faces without even trying, but ''even while he's doing it'' he seems like a fun-loving, oblivious goofball. There ''are'' a few times he visibly drops the act for the audience and lets on that he really ''does'' know what he's doing, but it's rare enough that it's easy to mistake him for TheFool.
* OffscreenTeleportation: Used with RuleOfFunny.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: He holds a conversation with ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext himself]]'' in "The Greater Hater" where he [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude asks what kind of name "Wander" is]] and his "reply" seems to be [[TheUnreveal cut off]] in the middle of saying it's not his real name.
** [[spoiler:It's eventually revealed that he once went by "Tumbleweed", though this is likely yet ANOTHER alias. The implication here is that Wander has been through many many names, though his real name remains unknown.]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness:
** In "The Boy Wander", you know you're up against purest evil if this little guy treats someone as a legitimate threat. [[spoiler:Subverted though. Even though Dr. Screwball Jones is indeed a legitimate threat, he's not much bigger a threat than other villains.]]
** In "The Greater Hater", Wander agrees with Sylvia that Lord Dominator may not be a good person after all. Besides Dr. Screwball, this is one of the very few times Wander thinks he can't befriend someone.
* ParentalAbandonment: We have yet to learn if he has a family or even any parents.
* PerpetualSmiler: As you could probably tell by the image.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: In "The Greatest" he's able to best Hater (who is at least three or four times his size) in every single competition they try - including pushups, a "ring the bell with the mallet" puzzle, and arm wrestling (in which he ''accidentally breaks Hater's arm off''.)
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Sylvia. They're an interspecies nomad team who trot the galaxy in tandem, they do everything together and are viewed more or less as an unit by their enemies. Each appears to be the only family the other has. Sylvia ''does'' have parents and three brothers, but she ran away from home at some point.
* ThePollyanna: He's almost always happy and cheerful, even around enemies.
* ThePowerOfFriendship/ThePowerOfLove: His preferred ways of defeating villains. Interestingly, as shown in "The Wanders", without the part of his personality that knows what it's like to be afraid, sad, and hopeless, he abandons these in favor of the more traditional "defeat evil through battle" method.
* Really700YearsOld: [[spoiler:"The Waste of Time" shows that he's seen at least two Galactic Conjunctions, making him over a ''thousand.'']]
* RedheadInGreen: His fur is reddish and he wears a green hat.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Sylvia's blue.
* TheReveal: It's revealed in "The Battle Royale" that Wander is a vegetarian, as mentioned by Sourdough as he pretends to eat him. It's been hinted he's this throughout the series: for example, the food he's eaten contain no meat (the food and sandwiches he brings in "The Picnic", the giant hoagie in "The Tourist", the Triple Pickle Cream Pie in "The Helper"); the eggs he makes in "The Breakfast" were growing on a tree; and in "The Family Reunion", when Sylvia and her brothers all have meat, Wander requests to have a salad instead.
* SadClown: [[TheHero Wander]] is a guy that is always there to cheer and help everybody that he comes across, but in season 2's [[WhamEpisode The Wanders]] we find out that he does this because he knows what it's like to be afraid, sad and hopeless himself.
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: He likes doing this, such as saying "Ding!" when he gets an idea.
* {{Scatting}}: He sometimes does this during songs.
* SeriesGoal: To spread love throughout the galaxy and help those in need.
* ShipperWithAnAgenda: Subverted. When he finds out that Lord Dominator is a woman, he sets up a fake InfinityPlusOneSword style weapon so Lord Hater can see her and finally get a girlfriend. Even though he does want the two of them to be happy together, a part of the reason he ships them is because he believes that LoveRedeems. He gives up in "My Fair Hatey" when Dominator makes it clear that she isn't interested (and tries to murder both him and Hater.)
* ShroudedInMyth: To the extent that, save for the youngest, a group of kids he and Sylvia help during "The Legend" never realize that the titular legend their wildly varying stories describe is [[SweetHomeAlabama the unsuspecting kind-hearted Dixie-accented furry orange being]] helping them get back to the escape ship and their parents. And he's perfectly happy with that, because even though the stories aren't true, they give people hope.
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: To Lord Hater.
* StealthHiBye: This is basically Wander's MO. Whenever anyone (usually Sylvia) is explaining to him why he needs to stay put and the camera focuses on their face, you can bet that by the time it pulls back out, Wander will have, well, wandered off by that point. This is lampshaded by Sylvia a few times.
** Averted in "The Heebie Jeebies", where Sylvia assumes Wander had wandered off mid-sentence but discovers that he in fact had not.
* SuperMode: He has one in "The Boy Wander", complete with a deep voice to match.
* SweetHomeAlabama: He speaks in a pronounced Dixie accent, plays the banjo, and is about the nicest guy you could ever meet.
* SymbolMotifClothing: Almost everything he owns has a star on it, such as his hat, which has a star button on the front, and his banjo, which has a star on the handle and another on the back.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Put him face to face with an evil dictator and his minions, or some bloodthirsty monster? No problem, he'll just annoy them into submission. But put him in a situation in which he needs to resist temptation...
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Possibly. He briefly dresses up as a woman in "The Greatest" and "The Good Deed" and in "The Fugitives," he seems a little TOO eager when Sylvia asks him to play dress up.
** In "The Date", he gets kicked across the restaurant, and emerges literally a second later in a waiter's uniform.
** From the same episode, he dresses up as a quintessential SouthernBelle to stop a wedding between Sylvia and Lord Hater.
** In "The Enemies", both Hater and Brad Starlight have dressed as women to try to trick Wander into their respective traps. Wander shows up, happily asks why they didn't tell him they were playing dress-up; then is revealed to be wearing a dress just like theirs with a blue bow on the top of his head.
** In "The Wanders", when his personality is split into sentient fragments, we see that at least two of them are female. Whatever this represents, he's apparently quite comfortable with it.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Wander is afraid of venomous bugs, as shown in "The Night"... Though it may have been because he was pinned down and they were crawling over his face at the time.
** He was also shown in "The Heebie Jeebies" to be afraid of mimes, although it should be noted that the mimes in question were ghost mimes with [[SlasherSmile Slasher Smiles]].
* WideEyedIdealist: His attitude towards the universe. In "The Prisoner", he says something like that ''in his sleep''.
** He genuinely believes that anyone, no matter how evil, has good inside them and can be redeemed. This becomes a major plot point in season 2 with the appearance of Lord Dominator, who challenges these beliefs. [[spoiler:He ultimately keeps his optimistic view of the universe despite her turning down his offer of redemption.]]
* YourSizeMayVary: He sometimes shrinks a bit in size when riding Sylvia.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AprilWinchell\\
''"Oh, it's on, you little scuzz-monkeys!"''

Sylvia is a member of a beast of burden species called the Zbornak. We don't know yet if her entire race has her aggressive temperament, but we've seen that her family definitely does. She and Wander are inseparable best friends, and she feels protective of him. She also has an appetite as big as her heart; and a temper as big as the galaxy. She's not quite as optimistic as Wander is, but she tries to be patient with his antics, and indulges him lovingly until she is too tired or stressed to go on.
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: She wears a saddle and reins. That's it.
* ActionGirl: Especially in "The Pet".
* BadassAdorable: Not as much as Wander, but to an extent.
* BadassArmFold: Her default pose tends to be the crossing arms pose.
* BerserkButton: Competitions are a big one to her.
* BigEater:
** In "The Fancy Party" she spends the whole party stuffing herself full of finger sandwiches.
** In "The Epic Quest", she wolfs down sandwiches along with Wander.
** In "The Matchmaker", she gets a BalloonBelly from overdining in a restaurant.
* BizarreAlienBiology: She [[BigEater eats like a horse]] and runs like the wind, but her species only needs to use the bathroom once every five months. However, it takes them all day to do it, taking her entirely out of the action in "The Picnic".
* BizarreTasteInFood: Sylvia loves Slarnak's Deli's Jellyfish Pie, but Wander gags at the mere mention of it -- and a comparatively tiny slice is enough to make a giant monster upchuck her and Wander off-planet.
* BoisterousBruiser: She's always ready to punch out bad guys, especially if they threaten Wander or any innocents. "The Family Reunion" shows it seems to run in the family: her brothers Bill, Gil, and Phil are even more enthusiastically scrappy than Sylvia is.
* BountyHunter: She used to be one, and [[spoiler:its how she and Wander first met.]]
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: Wander describes her as such in very similar terms in "The Rider".
* ButtMonkey: Particularly [[SlapstickKnowsNoGender in "The Egg"]], "The Hat" and "Lonely Planet".
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: She tries to keep Wander out of trouble. ''Tries.''
* CompetitionFreak: Her BerserkButton, as seen in "The Time Bomb".
* ContraltoOfDanger: Courtesy of her voice actress April Winchell, this establishes her as an ActionGirl.
* CoolBigSis: To Wander.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She apparently did all sorts of immoral stuff while adventuring with Ryder. According to her, Wander is the first friend she's ever had that saw good in her and encouraged her to be a good person.
** "The Waste of Time" reveals that [[spoiler:she did a stint as a bounty hunter after she split with Ryder, meeting Wander when she kidnapped him for a reward.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Has a joke to compliment everything Wander and Hater say.
* {{Determinator}}: And How!
* ExorcistHead: Her head can often be seen in a position a human head cannot turn, like facing backwards.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Technically she's an alien, but she bears close resemblance to a theropod dinosaur. The tufts on her head and tail even brings feathered dinosaurs to mind.
* FieryRedhead: She's definitely fiery, and her mane is a reddish-pink color.
* GeniusBruiser: She is very strong, very street-smart, and quite book-smart too.
* GoodIsNotNice: She is often very abrasive and apathetic.
* GoshDangItToHeck: Frequently uses phrases such as "[[OhCrap Oh grob]]" or "Flab crammin' ham strangler!" in place of real swearing.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:"The Waste of Time" reveals that she used to be a bounty hunter and total jerk who only met Wander because she was trying to kidnap him for a bounty.]] Needless to say she's not very proud of this nowadays.
* HollywoodToneDeaf: If her 'karaoke' in "The Rager" is anything to go by. It even makes Wander of all people want to pull the plug.
* HorseOfADifferentColor: She is Wander's mount, complete with reins and bridle. However, she can talk and uses the reins herself on occasion for non-saddle related purposes.
* HotBlooded: Do not make her angry, especially in competitions.
* IronButtMonkey: She can take a lot of punishment as well.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sylvia is loud, grumpy, stern and shot-tempered, but still a kind and protective girl.
* TheLadette: Well, she's certainly no dainty flower.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A fast-paced drumbeat, referencing her status as an ActionGirl.
* MamaBear: Whenever she believes Wander to be in danger.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Sassy, tough-as-nails personality compared to Wander.
* MeetMyGoodFriendsLeftyAndRighty: She refers to her fists as "Lady Haymaker and the Duchess of Whaling".
* NotSoAboveItAll: When dealing with Hater she can act just as goofy as Wander.
* OldShame: InUniverse. She considers her time with Rider and as a bounty hunter to be this.
* OneWomanArmy: Knocks Watchdogs around like they were bowling pins.
* OnlySaneMan: She is one of the beings to have common sense.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: While Sylvia has always been skeptical of most of Wander’s goal to make enemies his friends, she ''always'' goes along with it. However, in the series finale, she, for the ''first'' time, decides to not reluctantly agree with Wander’s plan to befriend Dominator.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Wander. They're an interspecies nomad team who trot the galaxy in tandem, they do everything together and are viewed more or less as an unit by their enemies. Each appears to be the only family the other has.
* PrehensileTail: [[FeatherFingers Even the feathers on the tip of it are!]]
* SapientSteed: She is Wander's mode of transport and is capable of speech and rational thought. She's basically Wander's steed and his sidekick.
* SeriesGoal: Unlike Wander, Her goal is to stop the galaxy’s threats and to defeat Lord Hater.
* SheCleansUpNicely: {{Zig Zagged}}. Sylvia is well aware she's not conventionally beautiful (as mentioned in "The Day") but she made the effort of formal dress for "The Fancy Party" by adding a string of pearls. In "The Party Animal" she puts on makeup and clothing befitting Emperor Awesome's dress code and looks terrible in it (not that Emperor Awesome thinks so). In "The Date", she mocks up a girly disguise as "Linguini von Breadstick" and is convincing enough that Hater wants to marry her after one date--''but'' Hater is extremely desperate and will later refer to her as either a "four" or a "six," deciding he should hold out for a ten (and asserting that no matter ''who'' he finds, they'll ''have'' to be better than "those two," the disguised Wander and Sylvia).
--> '''Sylvia:''' I better have been the six or I'm gonna go back there and deck him.
* SirSwearsALot: Though it's of a PardonMyKlingon variety to fit with the show's rating, she's the most foul-mouthed of the cast by a long mile.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Routinely on the receiving end of comical abuse. She's able to ''weaponize'' it in "The Catastrophe."
* SleepCute: Of the non-romantic sort with Wander, when they curl up together, or all by herself when she goes nose to tail.
* SoProudOfYou: "Proud of you, buddy."
* StraightMan: To Wander.
* TomboyishVoice: She's not at all feminine, as shown by her love of fights, crass language ([[PardonMyKlingon with her swear words conveniently left untranslated]]), and BigEater tendencies, and she has the deep voice (courtesy of Creator/AprilWinchell) to match.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak:
** Spas seem to be her soft point. In "The Ball", she really enjoys herself at one and brings up rebuilding it in her list of things the Balzarians need, and in "The Tourist," she briefly {{squee}}s over the fact that a hotel they're staying at has one.
** She also goes on a mini-tourist shopping spree in "The Helper".
* {{Tritagonist}}: Shares this with Commander Peepers, being Wander's constant companion, and TheLancer to Wander's [[{{TheHero}} Hero]].
* {{Tsundere}}: She's a tough, no-nonsense kind of girl, but she does have a [[HiddenHeartOfGold softer side]] which surfaces usually around Wander or those in need. It's made most apparent in "The Egg".
* WrenchWench: Hotwired a flying saucer in "The Fugitives" and fixed Stella Starbella's engine in "The Loose Screw."

[[folder:Wander's Hat]]
->'''Wander:''' A funny thing, Sylvie. Y'see, over the years, I've learned that this hat doesn't give you what you want, it gives you what you need.

[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin As the name implies]], Wander's trademark green hat and holder of his other trademark banjo. But it doesn't just look snazzy, Wander's hat is as alive [[MagicHat as it is magic]], able to give whoever uses it whatever they ''need'' - but not necessarily what they ''want.'' Most people who aren't Wander tend to not get the difference, leading to [[HilarityEnsues hilarity ensuing]]. It doesn't say or do much on its own, but it and Wander are very close thanks to Wander rescuing it from a pair of would-be conquerors trying to abuse its power.

It had a focus episode OnceASeason: "The Hat" in season 1, and "The Bad Hatter" in season 2.
* AnimateInanimateObject: To an extent. It can't move much on its own, but it's definitely alive.
* AppleOfDiscord: Wander reveals it was this once upon a time between two warlords who fought over it to give it everything they wanted. Wander actually ''stole'' it from them to keep the two from fighting and, since he didn't want to abuse its power, it came to willingly be his owner. Indeed when Hater gets his hands on it and Peepers sees its magical potential, they start fighting over it so much that it causes it to overload and flood their ship with items until Wander comes to take it off their hands.
* BagOfHolding: Able to create so many objects that it once flooded Hater's entire ship.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: It was once an unwilling ArtifactOfDoom for a pair of galactic warlords, until Wander rescued it. They've been inseparable ever sense.
* DoAnythingRobot: It has a solution for every situation, though they're sometimes unorthodox. It was, however, unable to do anything about the black hole in "A Hole... Lotta Nuthin."
* ExpressiveAccessory: Sorta, when not on Wander's head, it's rim can often be drawn like a mouth which can be viewed as smiling or frowning.
* MundaneUtility: It can conjure pretty much anything, including a live unicorn, but spends most of its time acting as a travel pack and occasional sleeping bag.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Since it can't talk at all, it can't explain ''why'' it gives what it gives. Sylvia spends all of "The Hat" trying to figure out its plan so they can get Wander out of trouble.
* SilentSnarker: Its increasingly insulting (but totally accurate) suggestions to Hater when he tries to get the perfect present for Dominator out of it, especially after he ignores its first few gifts. The best example being when he asked it for whatever Dominator wanted most, and it gave him a primed laser pistol pointed directly at his face. Later, it gives him breath mints.
* TheSpeechless: Since it's a hat, it cannot speak at all. It's sometimes expressive, but most of the time the only way to understand what it thinks is to figure out why it's giving you whatever it is at the moment.
* TricksterMentor: While its gifts can lead the user into trouble, especially if they don't use them like they're supposed to, it's always just what they need - even if they have to learn to think outside the box.
* {{Troll}}: Mentor though it may be, it clearly has fun messing with people. It even folds its rim into a smirk when it leads people into particularly ironic situations.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With a bit of FireForgedFriends thrown in. It and Sylvia don't always get along, but they do care about each other.

!!Lord Hater and His Army

[[folder:Lord Hater]]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends Keith Ferguson]]\\
''"I have mangled the minds of MILLIONS, I have tempted forth torrential tides of tears, I have reduced the richest of republics to REVEL and RUIN! Because I... am the greatest in all the galaxy!"''

Lord Hater is one of several villains in the universe. He seeks to take over and rule the universe, filling it with hate and fear. To aid him in his goal are his major domo, Commander Peepers, and the army of Watchdogs. Hater tends to talk a good game, but has a lot of behaviors in common with an awkward teenage boy.
* {{Adorkable}}: When trying to apologize to Commander Peepers in "The Axe", and when he finds out Lord Dominator's true identity at the end of "The Battle Royale".
* AmazonChaser: Upon learning that Dominator (the top villain who can beat him in a fight) is a girl, Hater immediately has LoveAtFirstSight and calls her "so cool".
* AntiHero: [[spoiler:Following "My Fair Hatey" he's on a mission to stop Dominator destroying the galaxy, only because he wants to conquer it himself.]]
* ApesInSpace: [[spoiler: The final episode's stinger depicts a crashed US space pod with green electricity coming out of it and the sound of monkeys screeching in the background, which blends into Hater's laughter. The implication here is that he was once a space ape who was exposed to...SOMETHING in space that made him who he is now. ]]
* ArchEnemy: One sided on his end, and deconstructed. When we first meet him he's the most powerful villain in the galaxy, but his increasingly extreme fixation with destroying Wander (who isn't even actively trying to stop him most of the time) leads him lose focus on conquering, constantly humiliate himself and be supplanted by dozens of other villains. If he'd simply took the occasional defeat and largely ignored Wander like the other villains he would still be on top, but by the second season he's a laughingstock ''because'' he can't help but be Wander's archenemy, with barely an episode going by without someone pointing it out.
* ArtificialLimbs: In Season 2, his right arm becomes robotic after circumstance requires him to cut off the real one to get away from Wander. It doesn't look any different from the original, but it's established the change was permanent.
* AudienceSurrogate: As opposed to Wander being the type of person any of us can be, Hater, according to WordOfGod, is representative of the typical human being.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Hater has a huge army of Watchdogs at his beck and call, however he is considerably more powerful and dangerous, to the point that when he's properly focused he could probably singlehandedly beat them all.
* BadassInCharge: During the last part of "The Picnic" - this is a guy who, in a towering rage, demolishes an army, takes down a giant dinosaur singlehandedly and ''punches a guy '''through''' a planet''. This makes his total inability to do anything about Wander that much funnier. As "The Battle Royale" shows, Hater is the only villain in the entire universe capable of taking on Lord Dominator in a one on one fight.
* BadBoss: He regularly abuses the Watchdogs both physically and mentally, namely Peepers. But he then stop abusing Peepers in Season 2.
* BenevolentBoss: As opposed to the above, he's this compared to Dominator. While Hater, other than the abuse, tends to treat the Watch Dogs like employees (what with fully-stocked facilities, willing to take their input in one episode, and even remembering the names of a few of them), Dominator treats her bots like mere tools (and even destroys them if they fail her even once).
* BerserkButton:
** Wander, just Wander. Everything about him is enough to make Hater lose his cool.
** He also hates being outdone.
** Up until he finds out about her true identity, Lord Dominator is probably the biggest button. In "The Battle Royale", hearing about her becoming the greatest in the galaxy is enough to snap him out of a DisneyDeath TWICE, something even Wander playfully teasing him couldn't do!
** If somebody picks on Peepers since nobody allowed to do that but him. Or if somebody is going to hurt him it will make Hater go berserk mode. Emperor Awesome learned the hard way in "The Cool Guy".
* BigBad: At first, though he's lost a lot of his power by the second season - to the point where he barely has any and is now considered a BigBadWannabe.
* BigBadEnsemble: He and Dominator are this in the second season.
* BigNo: In the episode "The Cartoon".
* BigBadWannabe: In the second season, although he could qualify as a VillainProtagonist, he now falls into this category, in-universe and out.
* BrainsAndBrawn: The Brawn to Peepers's Brains.
* BreakoutCharacter: Craig [=McCracken=] mentioned in an interview that [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jim-hill/craig-mccracken-talks-abo_b_6161784.html he feels the show is really about Hater.]]
-->He's the character that has the most to learn over the course of this show and is the one who most needs to grow. [...] I mean, Wander has some flaws. But he's really the guy who's guiding Hater to his future or wherever he's going to end up.
* BrilliantButLazy: It's very evident that if he weren't so much of a ManChild and obsessed over destroying Wander, he could easily be a threat greater than Dominator, as seen when [[LetsGetDangerous he decides get serious]].
* BrokenPedestal: In season 2, he's lost respect from Peepers due to spending too much time trying to destroy Wander. Peepers has even called him an idiot and his main goal is to make Hater top villain again.
* ButtMonkey: Full stop. Though he typically brings it on himself due to his role as the BigBad.
* CardCarryingVillain: Happily acknowledges he's evil, and is doing this just cause he likes it.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Became this in season 2, but not as close as Wander.
* TheCloudcuckoolanderWasRight: In "The Prisoner", he states that Wander is a "sly and crafty genius". At the time, it's seen as a joke towards Hater's incompetence, but as we learn in Season 2, Wander is in fact smarter and more manipulative than he lets on.
* TheComicallySerious: His scary faces are fun to look at, but terrifying in-universe.
* ControlFreak: Part of his motivation for conquering all existence is that he can have everything exactly as he likes it.
* DemBones: A skeleton in robes.
* {{Deuteragonist}}:
** According to WordOfGod, while Wander is the main character, Hater is the protagonist. He qualifies for {{Deuteragonist}} status because there's already an established main character, with Hater being the other main character. Despite this, he is absent in a few episodes.
** He becomes more prominently this in season 2 wherein a good number of the season's episodes are ones that focus more on him, some of which don't even involve Wander and Sylvia at all. The main over-arching storyline of the season in fact places him in the protagonist role just as much as Wander in regards to Dominator being the season's BigBad.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Hater's Propaganda film in the episode entitled "The Cartoon" is rife with this.
---> '''Hater:'''I have located the all-powerful staff of power. The power is so powerful it can do the impossible:make me even more powerful than I am now. It will do this by charging me with a power, which I will use to power up thus giving me more power than I already have. POWER!!
* TheDreaded: He might be a depicted in a comedic fashion for the most part, but a good deal of the galaxy is justifiably afraid of him. Wander and Sylvia only oppose him as often as they do because they fear him slightly less than the rest of the cosmos.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He's an ill-tempered, immature, unstable ControlFreak, but he would never abide to destroying the universe. He also looked uncomfortable when someone picks on his buddy Peepers.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: [[spoiler: The stinger for the final episode very strongly implies that he's actually a NASA space monkey that ended up in this galaxy and was exposed to some kind of magic.]]
* EvilCounterpart: He is the complete opposite of Wander; while his mission is to spread love and help others, Hater's mission is to spread hate and seize control of the universe.
* EvilIsPetty: Once blew up a planet because he didn't like its coloration (see FreudianExcuse).
* EvilSorcerer: He can fire energy from his hands and has also been shown to teleport, create forcefields, and use minor telekinesis. Whether these powers are magic or some sort of species ability isn't clear yet.
* EvilVersusOblivion: He's the Evil to Lord Dominator's Oblivion. Hater wants to take over the galaxy so he can rule it, whereas Lord Dominator wants to destroy it. This sometimes leads him into an EnemyMine with Wander.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* FatalFlaw:
** Often fails due to his arrogance.
** And he's easily agitated by Wander's shenanigans.
* FreudianExcuse: Claims to hate the color purple because a girl he asked out on a date while he was in high school, who just so happened to have purple hair, turned him down. He's gone out of his way to destroy entire planets for just being purple.
* GeneralFailure: When he lets his anger and/or ego get the better of him.
* GeniusDitz: Lacks commonsense, impulse control and barely knows how to do the most basic thing on his own. However in "The New Toy" he not only single handily builds his H.A.T.E.R.V, but it also proves to be powerful enough to take out his entire army (once someone who knows what their doing gets behind the wheel that is).
** In the final episode, he finds the location of the last inhabited planet in the galaxy using [[HiddenDepths his knowledge of gravitation wells and thermodynamics]], even determining how it had gone unnoticed and its exact classification.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: He wears red eyeball-print boxers under his cloak.
* GreenEyedMonster: Both literally and figuratively. Hater is a highly possessive, petty, and envious individual. If you have something he doesn't have or thinks he wants, then he'll do everything in his power to take it. His hatred for Lord Dominator is based on the possibility that the villain might be "cooler" than he is.
* GrievousHarmWithABody: Hater punches out Emperor Awesome with one of his own fist-headed minions.
* GutturalGrowler: His voice almost always has a growl to it, especially when he's yelling.
* HopelessSuitor: He can't seem to get that Lord Dominator isn't interested. [[spoiler: As of "My Fair Hatey" he seems to have given up on winning her over, since her end goal is [[OmnicidalManiac the total destruction of the galaxy]], something Hater can't abide since ''he'' wants to rule it. Her BreakingSpeech VillainSong outlining in plain English that she is not and never will be interested probably helped change his mind.]]
* HeroicHeelizationSpeech: Hater gives one to Wander in "The Hole Lotta Nuthin' It seems to work until he mockingly repeats [[CatchPhrase "Never hurts to help"]].
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: He has developed this in the second season.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Part of a reason he is evil is to cover up for his insecurities by being an intimidating tyrant. Its implied this is one of the reasons Wander tries so hard to be his friend, as he is the only one who sees right through his facade.
* IronButtMonkey: Has survived multiple unbelievable events, best demonstrated in "The Birthday" where he manages to survive everything his own doom Arena can throw at him, not that it really doesn't hurt.
* ItsAllAboutMe: The way he rules all of his conquered planets.
* {{Jerkass}}: Due to being one of the main villains, it's basically a given.
* KickTheDog: His treament of Wander in "The Hole...Lotta Nuthin'".
* KingKoopaCopy: Characteristically, he shares a lot of traits with [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]], more specifically the Bowser of the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' and ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'' games. Like Bowser, Hater is in control of an army of species-specific minions that are loyal to him and has a tendency to use his power for selfish and petty reasons. Both have a miserable record of failures when it comes to evil plans and tend to be subject to a number of AmusingInjuries and embarrassing situations. They both have bizarre relationships with their arch-enemies that vary from animosity to grudging respect and sometimes even share in [[GoKartingwithBowser recreational activities]].
* LargeHam: Oh YES. EvilIsHammy after all.
* LaughablyEvil: His over the top nature, arrogance and childlike habits often push him into this.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A heavy metal guitar riff, referencing his ObviouslyEvil status and signature instrument.
* LetsGetDangerous: Passive fury is his default temperament, but this trope kicks in whenever he gets really peeved.
** "The Battle Royale" especially shows this.
** As well as "The End of The Galaxy", where he smartens up and [[spoiler: defeats Dominator]], once he realizes there's only one planet left and it's now or never.
* LIsForDyslexia: If his letter to Dominator in "The Matchmaker" is anything to go by.
* LovesTheSoundOfScreaming: To the point where he has a megamix of it.
* MeaningfulName: Pretty much hates everything, but especially hates Wander.
* TheMillstone: To himself.
* MindOverMatter: One of his many powers.
* MoralityPet: [[spoiler: Captain Tim.]]
* NerdInEvilsHelmet: The patron saint of this trope.
* NeverMyFault: He used to blames Peepers on a lot of his problems, namely his lost status as a villain and his lack of an arsenal on par with Dominator. In actuality it's because he wastes his resources and time on other things, namely trying to destroy Wander. But he stopped blaming Peepers and instead blames someone else like the Watchdogs, Wander, or even objects.
* NoIndoorVoice: Shouts just about everything when calm, and when he gets [[UpToEleven angry]], it takes him being sad to talk normally.
** In "The Fancy Party," he has this whenever he's had it with Wander and tries to destroy him.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: His childish stubbornness and over the top ego and actions aside, Hater is a genuinely dangerous force commanding a gigantic army, having several incredible powers and having conquered multiple planets at this point. When he ever fully loses it, watch out.
** [[spoiler:Even after his VillainDecay, he's still a force to be reckoned with, as Dominator finds out in the series finale.]]
* ObviouslyEvil: His name alone is a dead giveaway.
* OffstageVillainy:
** Has successfully conquered at least one planet offscreen.
** He had some unseen person tortured to get sounds for his mix tape.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: He wants to be the only one to make Wander suffer. If anyone else, even Lord Dominator, tries it, he won't take it well.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness:
** In "The Greater Hater", he (initially) thinks of retreating from Lord Dominator. Considering how he always leaps in head-first towards anyone who bests him, this was ''very'' out-of-character for Hater.
** In "The End of the Galaxy", Hater acts like a true villain boss -- Thinking up strategies, making sure his minions are doing what they do perfectly, and not getting distracted. Even Peepers is impressed.
* PhraseCatcher: "Later, Hater!"
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: When he made Wander's hat produce gifts for Dominator, he made sure they were all stereotypical girly things. When the hat gave him self-help books, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Hater said that girls don't like to read]]. He also doesn't recruit girls for his army--although, according to WordOfGod via Craig himself, this is at least partly because he gets nervous around them.
--> "There's girls on their home planet, Peepers just doesn't recruit them. They are backwards thinking bad guys."
* PowerFloats: Sometimes during displays of power, he will actually levitate into the air.
* ThePowerOfHate: The angrier he gets, the more power he uses, and the more powerful he seems. When at maximum hatred, he's pretty much TheJuggernaut.
* PrimalStance: It's subtle, but he is almost always hunched over. [[spoiler: Which is fitting considering he's heavily implied to be reanimated remains of a chimpanzee.]]
* PsychoElectro: While not outright insane, Hater does posses very poor impulse control, and signs of megalomania. He likewise can produce incredibly powerful blasts of electricity.
* PsychopathicManChild: [[http://crackmccraigen.tumblr.com/post/99172216644 Word Of God]] is that Hater was originally developed as a child character for a different project. When added to the WOY cast, he was physically aged up to ''look'' like an imposing villain... but kept the exact same personality.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: As an added bonus, the red is arranged in such a way that it looks like he's covered in blood.
* RealityEnsues: Wander, Hater doesn't want to be your friend. You constantly bothering him and acting like he's your friend isn't going to make him magically befriend you, it's just going to annoy him.
* SatireParodyPastiche: Hater's Cartoon in "The Cartoon" with lots of CaptainErsatz thrown in for good measure.
* SayMyName: Sometimes to a MadnessMantra extent, and always, always malevolent.
--> '''Hater:''' [[SayMyName WAAANDERRR!]]
* SeriesGoal: To conquer the entire galaxy. On a side note, to get rid of Wander so he doesn’t have to put up with his constant shenanigans.
* ShockAndAwe: Can shoot green lightning bolts and create electromagnetic forcefields.
* SicklyGreenGlow: Always green.
* SpiritualSuccessor: He has a lot of characteristics in common with [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Mojo Jojo]], another character created by Craig [=McCracken=], such as a [[LargeHam flair for the dramatic]], [[CardCarryingVillain admittance toward being evil]], and proneness to [[VillainousBreakdown psychotic breakdowns]]. [[spoiler: It's also implied that he used to be a NASA chimp, until he got exposed to something that made him smarter and more dangerous, like Mojo's own origins as a lab chimp.]]
* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: He's all over the place in how effective he is. In "Greatest In the Galaxy", Wander humiliates in every competition he challenges him to, including arm wrestling. In "The Picnic" he defeats Emperor Awesome's entire army single handedly and punches Awesome through a planet. In Season 2, Emperor Awesome can sometimes hold his own against him and he once got overpowered by wild animals, but as of "Battle Royal" he's strong enough to fight Dominator on equal terms.
* ToThePain: All the better to provide sound bytes for his torture room mix tape.
* TookALevelInBadass: In the SeriesFinale, once he realizes that there's only one planet left in the entire galaxy, he stops fooling around and concentrates all his effort and firepower into conquering this one planet and doing everything he can to prevent Dominator from destroying it. ''[[spoiler:He succeeds]].''
-->'''Commander Peepers:''' [[LampshadedTrope Where has this guy been all season!]] [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall ...of our lives]].
** Also compare in season 1 when he was typically a DirtyCoward when threatened, in Season 2 he's the only villain brave enough to fight Dominator.
* TroubledFetalPosition: In the Shorts, when the camera used to broadcast his speech malfunctions and starts freezing footage into humiliating OffModel frames, Lord Hater briefly breaks down and just sits in a corner, quietly rocking back and forth.
* UngratefulBastard: Despite Wander saving his life multiple times, he still wants to kill him.
* VillainDecay: A major plot point in season 2 is centered around how his repeated failures to destroy Wander has resulted in him losing his standing as a villain and encouraging other fiends to try and take over the universe.
* ToCatchHeroesHireVillains: An entire episode focuses on Hater Hiring a bunch of Assassins to capture Wander and Sylvia.
* VillainousFriendship: His relationship with Commander Peepers turns out to be this. Their shared history goes back to the start of Hater's Evil Empire, and they even have one of those [[FriendshipTrinket half-heart necklaces]]. [[VitriolicBestBuds It's not the healthiest relationship, though]]. In some episodes it shows that deep down Hater does care about Peepers. In "The Fancy Party" he carried him to the Skullship while running away from the laser shooting servants due to The Black Cube sucking out his soul. He would normally ditch a Watchdog, but not Peepers. He helped freed Peepers from a "happy" Watchdog when he took away a gift he had from Wander. In "The Cool Guy" he was furious when he saw that Emperor Awesome was about to beat up Peepers and abandoned his popularity to save him. In "The Bad Neighbors", you can tell in his voice when Peepers was crying when he realize how awful his plan to stop Lord Dominator, he was being gentle and tried to cheer him up saying his plan can work on Emperor Awesome instead.
* VillainousValor: For the most part averted, except with regards to Dominator. He's the only character brave to try and fight Dominator face to face, and when he learns that she plans to destroy the galaxy works to try and stop her. In stark contrast the rest of the villains go into hiding and wait to be killed.
* VillainProtagonist: As [[WordOfGod confirmed]] by Creator/CraigMcCracken [[http://jimhillmedia.com/editor_in_chief1/b/jim_hill/archive/2014/11/14/craig-mccracken-talks-about-the-labor-intensive-story-process-behind-disney-xd-s-quot-wander-over-yonder-quot.aspx in this interview.]] There are plenty episodes without him though, which makes him a sort of SupportingProtagonist at the same time.
** Season 2 looks set to rectify this, as he has appeared or been mentioned in almost every episode.
* VillainousBreakdown: Like Mojo Jojo in Creator/CraigMcCracken's [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls last show]], Hater is constantly prone to this, such as when his attempts are foiled and when he's annoyed by Wander, almost every time.
* WasOnceAMan: [[spoiler: The stinger at the end of the final episode implies he was once an ''ape''- an animal astronaut from NASA that became reanimated and {{uplifted|Animal}} after his vessel drifted into the galaxy and became exposed to magic.]]

[[folder:Commander Peepers]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TomKenny\\
"Sir, we've been over this. You cannot ''destroy'' anyone at a dinner party, it's very rude!"

Commander Peepers is the highest ranking leader of the Watchdogs. He runs all command operations, comes up with plans for Hater's invasion forces, and tries to assuage Hater's feelings when Lord Hater has been frothed into a rage by Wander or by anyone else, or when Hater drops into a sulk. Peepers, over time, has taken on the best friend/caretaker role, even though he still only ever calls Hater "sir." He is devoted to his job, and to Hater himself.

* AdorableEvilMinions: As usual with the rest of the Watchdogs, with his {{Adorkable}} personality to boot.
* {{Adorkable}}: He can be nerdy.
* AffablyEvil: Downplayed. Because he ''can'' be a {{Jerkass}}.
* BadassBookworm: He defeated one of the top ten villains, conquered many of his planets, and punched a missile. He did all of this '''IN THE SAME EPISODE'''. He was also the second character in the series to make Dominator [[VillainousBreakdown lose her cool]].
* BadBoss: Known to zap Watchdogs with his blaster for talking out of turn. He begins "The Bounty" by punching them, kicking them, and forcing one to throw a heavy banner at himself, all in an attempt to prove to Hater how evil he can be.
* BizarreAlienBiology: He's an eyeball with a body.
* BrainsAndBrawn: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-Zagged]]: while he's officially the brains to Hater's brawn, he's got an improbable set of muscles hidden under his suit and has been known to perform incredible feats of strength when the plot requires him to do so. In his team-ups with other characters he nonetheless generally takes the "brains" role and its accompanying weakness; despite the fact that he's able to fight Sylvia to a stalemate, her strength proves vital to his mission in "My Fair Hatey" when he's unable to break into Dominator's ship without being clobbered by her bots, and in "The Show Stopper" she needs to grab him to help him pull a lever he's unable to budge himself.
* ButtMonkey: Being the OnlySaneMan of Lord Hater's army will do this to you.
* CardCarryingVillain: As with most villains in this show, he is fully aware that what he's doing is evil.
* CharacterDevelopment: Starts off the show as Hater's second-in-command and a ButtMonkey who is often terrified of his boss. By the start of Season 2, he's brave enough to stand up to Hater and takes on the role of CloudCuckoolandersMinder, providing the strategic brains to Hater's brawn.
* TheChewToy: He exists mainly to be Sylvia and Hater's punching bag. At least until Season 2.
* ClarkKentOutfit: Shown rather hilariously in "The Buddies".
* CloudCuckoolandersMinder: The Sylvia to Hater's Wander. Most of his humor in the second season comes from him desperately trying and failing to keep Hater's immature antics from ruining their galactic conquest plans.
* CryCute: Quite frequently.
--> "But I thought ''we'' were buds!"
* CuteIsEvil: Think he's cute? Watch "The Bounty" and see him [[spoiler: bully the other Watchdogs in a futile attempt to make a point to Lord Hater, zap a game attendant who gives him a doll, lure one bounty hunter into an enclosure with a vicious animal, and '''''slice another bounty hunter in half from the inside out''''' ''using the blade on top of his helmet''.]]
* TheDragon: Serves as Hater's second-in-command and is also the leader of the Watchdogs.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Peepers has expressed annoyance with Hater at times, as well as muttered to himself that he should be the one in charge. Plus, WordOfGod states that he's more serious about evil and universal domination than Hater is. If the Hater Empire were to fall, Peepers would likely start an Empire of his own. He actually gets the chance to do just that in "The Cool Guy", but unfortunately for him, he lacks the intimidation factor that Hater has.
** [[PlayingWith Unlike your average conniving dragon]], however, he cares about Lord Hater in a way that precludes using him ''only'' as a weapon. Peepers' scheming, though driven by his need for power, frequently seems to spring from a genuine desire to see Hater succeed at what he does best.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: His response to learning Dominator is an OmnicidalManiac. Peepers is fine destroying planets, but even he is horrified by the idea of wiping out the entire galaxy.
* EvilCounterpart: Just as Lord Hater is one to Wander, Commander Peepers is this to Sylvia. Like her, he forms the more intelligent and rational counterpart to his more eccentric and narrowminded best friend. Both likewise more or less have dedicated their lives to helping their best friends with their life long goal; while Sylvia helps Wander save people, Peepers pretty much runs Hater's empire, allowing him to conquer planets. [[NotSoDifferent The two even acknowledge their similarities]] in "The Battle Royale".
* EvilGenius: He's smarter than Hater himself!
* FacelessEye: Along with the rest of Hater's {{mooks}}.
* AFatherToHisMen: PlayedWith. On one hand, he lets the Watchdogs hide behind him from Captain Tim in "The Pet", knows the names of individual Watchdogs in "The Little Guy" and "The Gift 2", and chats casually with whom he thinks is a Watchdog holding Sylvia prisoner in "The Day". On the other hand, he zaps and punches minions in "The Bounty Hunter" in an attempt to prove his own ruthlessness, is perfectly willing to just abandon Westley in "The Little Guy", and is just as appalled as Hater at the concept of the Watchdogs being happy (until he's also "infected" with happy) in "The Gift 2".
* HonestAdvisor: Frequently at his own peril.
* HypercompetentSidekick: "The Axe" shows that without him, Hater would be totally incapable of retaining control of any of the planets he conquers.
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Downplayed. It's hinted that he may have romantic feelings for Hater, but it's never confirmed in the show, and it isn't a major point.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: He can use his lightning bolt-shaped helmet as a weapon. He's done so twice, in "The Bounty" and "The Greater Hater."
** In "The It" he not only defeats [[spoiler:Hater]] by effectively weaponizing the pointer he had been using at a strategy meeting, but later removes his contact lens and [[DeadlyDisc throws it like a ninja weapon]].
* {{Jerkass}}: He can be just as bad as ''Hater''.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Commander Peep-ers!"
** He also has a deep marching theme, referencing his strategic and organized mind.
* MookLieutenant: Serves as one to the Watchdogs.
* TheNapoleon: The platform shoes present in "The Gift 2" implies he would love to be as big and imposing as his boss.
* NerdInEvilsHelmet: Quite literally.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Say Peepers? You know the whole plan of defeating Dominator by [[spoiler:using Frostonium to freeze her and her ship up?]] Well congratulations, [[spoiler:you just made an already fearsome villain even ''more'' powerful by accidentally '''giving her ice powers to go with her lava powers'''!]]
* NoHeroToHisValet: He respects and lionises Hater's ferocity and strength, but is deeply resentful of his childishness and idiocy.
* NotSoAboveItAll: He can, on occasion, act just as goofy as Hater, like his refusal to let himself be tagged in "The It" or joining in on Hater's dorky victory dance at the end of "The Axe".
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Will not let anyone else capture Wander and Sylvia and allow Lord Hater to finally rule the universe, which causes him to stop bounty hunters from doing just that. Ironically, he allows Wander and Sylvia to escape and gets into even more trouble with Lord Hater.
--> '''Peepers:''' Oh, I can't believe this! Those bounty hunters are gonna capture Wander and Sylvia! Then Lord Hater's rule will spread across the galaxy and evil will conquer the universe!
--> '''Watchdog:''' But sir, isn't that what we ''want'' to happen?
--> '''Peepers:''' ''(beat)'' NO!!!!! I'M supposed to capture Wander and Sylvia, and THEN Lord Hater's rule will spread across the galaxy and THEN evil will conquer the universe! All because of ''ME!''
** [[CharacterizationMarchesOn He seems to get over this]] after "The Bounty," at least to the extent that he wants the Watchdogs to capture Wander and Sylvia; in "The Little Guy" when Westley claims to have captured them he makes a point of taking the ship to check, and in "The Day" he expresses satisfaction with the army for having apparently captured "that hideous zbornak."
* OnlySaneMan: Ever since his [[CharacterDevelopment character development]], he became this, along with Sylvia. [[NotSoAboveItAll Although, not all the time]].
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: He snaps at Lord Hater, who is rather surprised at this, when he lets loose how Lord Hater wastes his resources on trivial things and destroying Wander rather than maintaining his status as a villain in "The Greater Hater". This is actually a large part of his CharacterDevelopment from Season 1.
* PerpetualFrowner: The structure of his helmet makes him appear constantly angry no matter what emotion he's actually feeling. There are times when the front part of the hat disappears when he needs to emote, though.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-Zagged]]: Sometimes he is much stronger than he looks, other times he is ''exactly'' as strong as he looks.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Has only hired male Watchdogs for Hater's army. According to WordOfGod, this is because Hater gets nervous around girls.
* PragmaticVillainy: Contrasting with Hater, he's mostly concerned with decisions that will effect Hater's standing as a villain. As such while he dislikes Wander he wants Hater to ignore him.
* ProudToBeAGeek: His speech near the end of "The Cool Guy."
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[SubvertedTrope Most of the time he's not competent enough for this to be in play (Until Season 2 that is)]]. [[DoubleSubversion But if he gets serious]]...
* ServileSnarker: He has developed this to Hater in the second season.
* SheatheYourSword: In season two, he realizes the best way for Hater to salvage his reputation is to stop wasting his time on Wander and do other evil things. Hater agrees at first but keeps doing it anyway.
* SoProudOfYou: He may [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything discipline Hater like a strict parent]] and [[HonestAdvisor call him out on his shortcomings]], but he takes pride in his accomplishments and doesn't hesitate to let him know.
* ThemeTune: Two variants of it, which double as MoodMotif.
** When Peepers has his mojo working, it's a deadly brass thing that ends in a man chorus singing "COMMANDER PEEPERS" in ominous voices.
** When Peepers is out of favor or is suffering humiliation, the same tune is slowed down to a pathetic Failure Horns motif, and the chorus sings "Commander Peeeeeeepers" in almost pitying voices.
** There's a happy, triumphant variation at the end of "The Axe" when [[spoiler:a statue of Peepers is erected next to Hater's]].
** "The Cool Guy" gives us the OrchestralBombing variant when [[spoiler:he dramatically ascends Hater's throne in his absence]].
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gave a pretty good to Emperor Awesome in ''The Cool Guy'' in response to being called a nerd.
* TopHeavyGuy: He shows some impressive pecs when fighting Sylvia in ''The Battle Royale''.
* {{Tritagonist}}: Shares this with Sylvia, being TheLeader of the Watch Dogs, and TheDragon to Hater's BigBad.
* TookALevelInBadass: In season 1, Peepers is very submissive towards Lord Hater, rarely speaks out of turn, and cowers when he is shouted at by him. In season 2; he isn't afraid to call Hater out on his bullshit, counters Sourdough's armada, and even puts up an impressive fight with ''Sylvia'' in "The Battle Royale".
* UndyingLoyalty: Has stood by Hater despite his frustrating behavior and VillainDecay, believing in his ability to take back the title of Greatest in the Galaxy.
* VetinariJobSecurity: Hater's attempt to fire him in "The Axe" lasts only as long as it takes him to realize that he doesn't even know how to operate his own ship.
* VillainousFriendship: Peepers is the best friend that Hater's ever had. To HoYay levels in "The Big Day."
* VillainousValor: Along with Hater, he's the only villain brave enough to try and stop Dominator. This is despite seeing Dominator [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] Hater in her ''The Greater Hater'' and later defeat all the villains except Hater in ''The Battle Royal''.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Despite clashing with Hater constantly, mainly over his priorities (or lack thereof), he cares about him deeply, to the point of keeping pictures of him in his room and having a full-blown breakdown when he thinks he's no longer Hater's best friend. This is despite the fact that Hater frequently slights him ("Just kidding! We're not pals! Hater out!"), ditches him to hang out with other people, and at one point even fires him, forces him to crop himself out of all their digital photos and erases his name from the computer system without a second thought (until [[spoiler:he realizes [[HypercompetentSidekick Peepers was the one doing all the actual work of conquering the galaxy]]]]). That said, a few [[HypocriticalHeartwarming significant]] [[FriendshipMoment moments]] make it clear that Hater ''does'' care for Peepers in turn, perhaps as much as his naturally self-centered and short-sighted personality will allow.

[[folder:Army of Watchdogs]]
-> ''[[BattleChant Hate’s great; best villain! Hate’s great; best villain!]]''

The watchdogs are all the same eyeball-headed race that Peepers comes from. They seem to be mellow little guys when they're not directly under orders to destroy, blow up, or invade.
* AdorableEvilMinions: Especially when they're given presents.
* AmbiguouslyGay: In "The Greatest" as they enjoy the carnival, they are seen kissing each other, yet they're all male.
* BizarreAlienBiology: How they eat is a constant question among fans. They appear to use their eyes as mouths for eating and speaking.
** The first episode features them licking ice-cream cones. Without tongues or mouths.
* BlindingCameraFlash: Being large eyes on small bodies, this is one of the best ways to neutralize them.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: In the "The Gift" two-parter, they rescue Hater with the competence of a highly-trained S.W.A.T. team when they feel he's given them positive reinforcement.
** Despite their normally silly demeanor, they can actually be quite competent when the time calls for it. Hater's poor leadership skills, and the fact that they really aren't all that evil are the only things keeping them from being a genuinely powerful force. This is best shown in "The End Of The Galaxy", [[spoiler:where Hater becomes a lot more competent and the Watchdogs are fighting to SAVE the galaxy rather than conquer it, leading them to become surprisingly badass. ]]
* {{Facepalm}}: They collectively do this simultaneously (following Peepers and along with Awesome's army) in "The Picnic".
* FacelessEye: Their eyes serve as their face. Watching them eat is...bizarre to say the least.
* FriendlyEnemy: Wander is surprisingly effective at befriending these guys when he wants to. May overlap with PunchClockVillain, as both times he did so was while they were on break (though the first time, he was able to ''convince'' them to take said break while they were supposed to be in the middle of plundering). ''Eye on the Skullship'' implies that, with the exception of Peepers, they all tend to like him.
* TheHeart: Andy, who hosts 'The Eye on the Skullship' show, which makes the Watchdogs feel important and special.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Although it could be Hand-Waved by their lack of depth-perception with only one eye.
* InvisibleAnatomy: They've been shown eating multiple times in the show, despite lacking mouths.
* KilledOffForReal: According to the animatic at the end of "The Showstoppers" [[AerithAndBob Keith, Gene, Buddy, D.J., Lips, Craig, Eddie, Dave, Franscisco, Sam, Amy, Jack, another Keith, April, Tom, Sara, Jennifer, Noel, Fred, Alex, Leticia, Erik, Jeremiah, Benjamin, Shakeh]], [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude Tara, Anthony, Juan, Levon, Roman, Trevor, Brian, Raymond, Chris, Isreal, Jezreel, Katrina, Robert, Liz, Charlene, Vahe, Andy, Jay, Susan, Lauren, Keiji, Jordan, Laurens, Zabrina, Kimberly, Leona, Dawn, Bon, Lisa, Mark, Treasure, Simon, Stiv, Scott, Eric, Mikey and Lamar]] died as a result of the events that took pace during the episode. It's implied that some were directly killed by Peepers and others by Dominator (Lips to be exact). It should be noted that every inch of the unnamed planet is covered with dogs so the list could very well be referring to some of them, especially given that Peepers does not hire females. Further it was explicitly stated that the concert had been going on for four days and everyone was exhausted. Who knows how many just dropped dead?
* LetsGetDangerous: When their morale is up or given the motivation, they can be a ''very'' effective army.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Most times we get a look at their personalities, they seem to be generally decent. They're agreeable and even kind at times, get along with the heroes despite their bosses' disapproval, and are mainly evil because [[OneHundredPercentAdorationRating they legitimately believe Hater is the best guy ever]].
* {{Mooks}}: Hater's minions who he sends to conquer planets and chase down Wander and Sylvia.
* MonogenderMonsters: They're all male, not because they're a OneGenderRace, but [[https://twitter.com/CrackMcCraigen/status/633649179936428032 because]] girls make Hater nervous so [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Peepers doesn't hire any]].
* PunchClockVillain: Although their job is to capture Wander and Sylvia, the Watchdogs seldom attack them unless they're ordered to.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:In the SeriesFinale, they actually take on Dominator's MechaMooks and win.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AzizAnsari

Westley was the smallest Watchdog recruit, and was generally ignored or kicked around by the rest of the Watchdogs, including Commander Peepers. After meeting Wander and Sylvia and getting to know them a bit (which included saving his life on more than one occasion), Westley captured the pair, then thought better of his deed. He faked his own death to let them escape and has gone wandering off on his own since then.
* CharacterDevelopment: He becomes a good guy at the end of his episode.
* FakingTheDead: He made it look like he got blown into space trying to prevent Wander and Sylvia from escaping Hater's ship.
* GoodCostumeSwitch: At the end of "The Little Guy", Westley abandons his lightning-topped Hater beanie and wears the star-topped beanie Wander pulled out of his hat.
* HeelFaceTurn: He turns good at the end of his episode.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: He's stockier and smaller then the rest of the watchdogs. He's also the only Watchdog to wear a two-piece suit, while the others wear one-piece suits.
* RealMenWearPink: The pajamas he's given by Wander and Sylvia (likely from Wander's hat) are pink.
* TheKlutz: Tends to stumble and fall down a lot, usually into worse trouble.
* TheRuntAtTheEnd: Is it any wonder he left Hater's army for new friends [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe who actually made him feel like he mattered]]?

[[folder:Captain Tim]]

An [[Film/{{Alien}} alien]] that Wander and Sylvia find in an abandoned space station. After unsuccessfully trying to tame the dangerous creature, Wander gives him to Lord Hater.
* AudibleSharpness: His legs are blades sharp enough to cut through aluminum, and they make this sound.
* BizarreAlienSenses: Possesses thermographic vision, [[EyelessFace despite not having visible eyes]].
** Thermographic POV is often used in nature documentaries to simulate infrared sensing. So alternatively, it has infrared sensing in spite of no visible loreal pits.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Already sort of there considering he's by nature an efficient, ruthless killing machine, but special note goes to how he treats Hater; he clearly likes him to some extent (otherwise he wouldn't have [[spoiler: rescued him from the arachnomorph queen]]), but he still continually bites, scratches, and burns him. One can only assume then that this how he actually shows affection (or at least he's perfectly fine with trying to kill something he cares about).
** Looking from a more animalistic viewpoint, Captain Tim considers Lord Hater to be it's alpha. Hence, why Captain Tim acts loyal and more peaceful around Hater. But just like other wild creatures with some level of hierarchy and inherent aggression, Captain Tim always challenges Hater for the position or, at least, to keep itself and it's master in shape. If Lord Hater stays alive after the fights, then that alone is enough for him to remain Captain Tim's master till the next brawl.
** By that logic, Captain Tim doesn't become loyal to Watchdogs, because, even though they do seemingly survive, they keep fearing Captain Tim. Lord Hater doesn't fear his pet at all and shows a level of affection that Captain Tim is able to understand.
* TheCaptain: Once he joins Hater, Hater officially recognizes him as a captain, technically outranking Peepers as Hater's [[TheDragon second in command]].
* TheDreaded: A member of the Arachnomorphs, a race of carnivorous spider-like monsters that eat just about anything in the area, with the Watchdogs as its chew toys. Makes sense Hater would love having such a creature for a pet.
* {{Expy}}: Of the [[{{Film/Alien}} Xenomorphs]].
* FluffyTheTerrible: Wander thinks he is named Captain Tim, who is actually the leader of the missing squad.
* MoralityPet: The only creature that Lord Hater shows any compassion to.
* PetMonstrosity: Lord Hater adopts this man-eating deadly alien as a beloved pet.
* PoisonousPerson: Captain Tim doesn't just spit acid. His urine and excrement are deadly acids as well, and spread quickly.
* RealMenWearPink: Has a pink collar courtesy of Wander. Captain Tim keeps this when owned by Hater.
* SuperSpit: He can spit acid.
* ToServeMan: Heavily implied to have eaten the crew that was at the space station.

!!Other Galactic Villains

[[folder:Lord Dominator]]
[[caption-width-right:350:"I've always had a weakness for barrenness and bleakness."]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Noël Wells, Creator/FredTatasciore (in armor)\\
''[[EvilerThanThou Dominator’s greater; best villain! Dominator’s greater; best villain!]]''

Lord Dominator serves as the main antagonist of the second season after arriving from another galaxy. Described as "a greater hater", Dominator is a far more effective and threatening villain than the former BigBad Lord Hater could ever be, which is metaphorically reflected by the similar outfit, name, Mooks, and ship. On the outside, Dominator is a [[NoNonsenseNemesis no-nonsense]] KnightOfCerebus man with an intimidating voice, but on the inside? Dominator is a woman who acts like a dorky teenager…and ''still'' a sadistic menace through and through. Her goal is to harvest Volcanium X from the cores of planets, which serves as a power source for her ship, powers, and army. This process turns the planet into a desolate wasteland and destroys it, which excites her. Dominator is all about bringing pain, suffering, and torment across the galaxy because she finds it fun and it brings her great pleasure.
* {{Adorkable}}:
** At the end of her premiere episode, she gleefully gushes about how fun it was to chase Wander, Sylvia, Hater and Peepers all over her ship.
-->'''Lord Dominator:''' "That... was... [[NerdInEvilsHelmet AMAZING!]] Hahaha! They were all like ''"[[OutsideContextProblem Whaaaat!? Who's THIS guy!?]]"'', HA! Then I was like ''serious'', and then I was all ''"ROOOOAAAGH!"'', and then the lava went ''"Woooosh!"'', and they were all ''"AAAAH, NO, WHY!?"'', hahahaaa! What a bunch of dorks! This is going to be ''fun!''"
** Near the beginning of "The Battle Royale", Wander catches her out of her armor, doing a goofy victory dance over having made the number one spot on the Villain Leaderboard. Later when she arrives at the asteroid formation where all the villains are fighting she giddily discusses with herself which weapons to use in the battle.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Lord Hater spends the entirety of "The Greater Hater" in furious envy over all the cool evil stuff Dominator has.
** She's this trope for every single villain native to Wander's galaxy. By the time of ''"My Fair Hatey"'', Dominator has cowed every villain aside from Lord Hater into acknowledging that ''she'' is the 'Greatest in the Galaxy'.
* AndThenWhat: [[spoiler:Finds herself at this position in the finale, with nothing left to dominate]].
* ArcVillain: Of Season 2.
* {{Asexuality}}: She has absolutely no interest in pursuing a romantic relationship with anyone, despite not being afraid to employ feminine wiles to manipulate people.
* AxCrazy: She takes this to OmnicidalManiac extremes. She's a cruel sadist who gleefully decimates planets.
* BadassNormal: To an extent. Unlike Lord Hater she has no powers whatsoever. All her powers come from her equipment, which she herself designed and built. "The Night Out" also shows that she's a competent fighter even without her equipment.
* BadBoss: She's even worse than Lord Hater in this respect. In "The Battle Royale" she uses one of her MechaMooks for target practice while picking out her weapon of choice for her big arrival. In "The Bot", she's shown [[ThrownOutTheAirlock shooting one of her (sentient) robot probes into space]] and letting it burn up in the atmosphere of a planet for [[YouHaveFailedMe screwing up one too many times]].
* BareYourMidriff: Her outfit leaves her midsection exposed.
* BeneathTheMask: When Dominator takes off the mask, it reveals she's not only a young woman, but as much of a dorky PsychopathicManchild as Hater, even if she's much more competent.
* BigBad: She's the ultimate BigBad of the series, what with Hater being demoted to being a BigBadWannabe.
* BigNo: In "The Bot" upon having the coordinates to a planet she wanted to conquer deleted. Said planet had enough Volcanium X that it could have powered her army forever.
* BreakTheHaughty: [[spoiler: After her ultimate defeat in the series finale, the terrifying BigBad is reduced to pathetically skulking away from the galaxy in a single orbble, with her ship, armor, and army completely destroyed.]]
* BroughtDownToBadass: She has no special powers without her armor, but is still has excellent fighting skills, a devious wit, and a natural aptitude at causing disasters.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: When rattling off a list of her 'friends', she almost forgets that she'd executed Bot 13/Beep Boop several weeks ago.
-->'''Lord Dominator:''' "I've got lots of friends! Uh, Bot 79, Bot 108, Bot 13- No, wait, I blew up Bot 13..."
* CardCarryingVillain: Deconstructed. She enjoys destroying planets and being the greatest villain in the universe, all while acting like a peppy cheerleader about it. Why? [[VillainSong 'Cause she's the BAD GUY!]] She's utterly ''mad''.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In her first few appearances, she was shown to be completely unflappable and unstoppable in battle, with her goofy private personality being her only quirk. This started to change from "The Bot" onwards, showing that she has a lousy temper, impatience, and overly controlling tendencies.
* ControlFreak: She prefers the company of her robots to real people because they don't (usually) disagree with her, refuse orders, or asks for things themselves.
* ConvectionSchmonvection: Lord Dominator routinely grabs people with her lava arms and only once does anyone mention it being hot. Usually, they just look scared that she caught them and then escape without so much as a singe on their clothes. It's possible she can control the heat of her lava arms. [[spoiler: Her ice powers don't seem to suffer from this as the ice block she put Wander in slowly melts over the course of the episode.]]
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: The [[MagmaMan lava-like substance]] that Dominator's arm shoots and are made of are actually part of the armor just like her helmet.
* CuteAndPsycho: She looks like an alien supermodel and behaves like a hyperactive teen girl, but the only thing that brings her joy is causing pain to the others.
* DarkActionGirl: Can easily hold her own against an enraged Lord Hater ''and'' all the other villains combined. [[SuperReflexes Plus she can do a standing slide down a banister, launch into a mid-air summersault without slowing down, and finally land on her feet smoothly and exactly where she wants without breaking into a sweat]].
* DarthVaderClone: In her mechanical suit and helmet.
* DelinquentHair: She has a long, white mohawk that drapes over the side of her head. In The Night Out, she styles it into a [[http://68.media.tumblr.com/1f0432c2e72cb1a649942d5880217a86/tumblr_inline_o854ghMJ0f1r7wdap_1280.png giant spiked mohawk.]]
* DePower: [[spoiler:Her suit is completely destroyed in the FinalBattle, along with her ship and her entire army, leaving her powerless to the point pealing an orange is difficult for her. Since she apparently used up all the Volcanium X in the galaxy, she won't be able to rebuild them either.]]
* DistaffCounterpart: To Hater, and to a lesser extent Wander (since she's a villain like Hater, but also has some Wander-esque silliness). Also unlike Hater, she doesn't want to conquer the galaxy, she'd rather ''destroy'' it.
* DontYouDarePityMe: [[spoiler:Shows shades of this in the series finale, where she turns down Wander's offer of friendship, simply because her pride wouldn't let her admit that she's actually really lonely.]]
* TheDreaded: She is far more terrifying compared to the other villains. Even Wander, Sylvia, Hater, and Peepers are afraid of her.
* DudeMagnet: She had both Hater and Emperor Awesome (initially) hitting on her.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Makes an appearance in TheStinger of the season 1 finale "The Rider". She also appears at the top of the Galactic Villain Leaderboard in Season One.
* EliteMooks: Her one-eyed robots are an obvious improvement from Hater’s Watchdogs. The former quickly [[TheWorfEffect Worfs]] Sylvia in “The Greater Hater”.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: [[spoiler: Is unable to understand why Wander would save her when her ship exploded]].
* EvilCounterpart: She is similar to Wander (for being energetic and excited), Lord Hater (being evil, dress similar and wear sneakers), Peepers and Sylvia (both being strong and having common sense). However, unlike Wander and Sylvia who are on the side of good and seek to help others, Dominator is on the side of evil and seeks to conquer the universe; and unlike Hater and Peepers, she's more competent and ruthless than either at actually being evil.
* EvilFeelsGood: Unlike Hater and other villains, Dominator isn't seeking dominion or glory, she just gets pleasure from destruction and people's suffering.
* EvilGenius: There's no one in the galaxy smarter or more diabolical than she is.
* EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: The crueler something is, the harder she'll laugh at it. [[https://suspendersofdisbelief.tumblr.com/post/130626678246 According to one of the writers, Dominator is schadenfreude personified.]]
-->'''Lord Dominator:''' OH, the look--HAHAHAH--on your FACE! Ahaha! "Sylvia, noo!" Ahahahah!! Thought-- your.. friend... DEAD!!! Ahahahahahahahaha!!!
* EvilerThanThou: To Hater and the other villains.
* FauxAffablyEvil: While she seems extremely serious and evil on the outside, she actually acts like a dorky, overenthusiastic teenager when she's alone. However, it doesn't change the fact that she's the most competent and dangerous villain shown so far. Her robot minions also get this treatment. Do a good job, she'll act like your best friend in high school. Fail at your job, and well...
* {{Foil}}: To Wander. She has Wander's enthusiasm and fun-loving personality, only she focuses it on doing evil rather than good. In addition, she becomes TheDreaded while Wander is revealed to be the in-universe BigGood.
* ForTheEvulz: Unlike Hater, who's mostly motivated to be an EvilOverlord because he's a ControlFreak, Dominator does her villainy for the sheer pleasure of it; she's not in the least upset by the loss of her galaxy-conquering army, she's far too overjoyed by [[WorthyOpponent having someone worth tormenting]]. She knew the "Ring of Invincibility" was really just a candy ring the entire time, but still joined in the fight over it just for fun. In "My Fair Hatey" it's revealed [[spoiler: she's trying to destroy the galaxy, not conquer it.]]
* FreudianExcuse: Completely and deliberately averted. Wander keeps assuming she has one, but if she does we never get even a hint of it and her motivation to wreck things is mainly just for fun. [[spoiler: In the season finale, it's revealed that she's lonely, but her loneliness isn't the reason why she's evil, it's just the reason why she goes about being evil by acting like a neighborhood bully from hell.]]
* GadgeteerGenius: She single-handedly built her ship, suit, and entire robot army herself. [[http://suspendersofdisbelief.tumblr.com/post/126187443506 To top it all off, Word of God says that she's self-taught!]]
* GreaterScopeVillain: To Lord Hater and the other supervillains, initially, but by the midpoint of Season 2 she is the BigBad of the series.
* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: Underneath her intimidating armor, Lord Dominator is ''quite'' the looker.
* HartmanHips: Downplayed, but still noticeable at times.
* HatesBeingAlone: [[spoiler:At the end of the season, Wander realizes that she actually wants people to have around and give her companionship, even if it's just through bullying and intimidation. Her massive ego would probably never let her admit it though.]]
* HopeCrusher:
** Her entire reason for trying to destroy a single plant in ''"The Flower"'' - [[spoiler: She wanted to drive home to Wander how total her victory over the galaxy was by that point, by ensuring that not even plants would survive on the dead worlds she'd created]].
** This is also the reason why she takes her sweet time in [[spoiler:destroying the Secret Planet. She could've just drilled the planet and killed it immediately, but she wanted to savor the horror and despair of her defeated enemies - to the point of capturing Sylvia and placing her exactly where the drill would connect, while Wander watches helplessly from Dominator's ship. Fortunately, this white-knuckle grasping of the VillainBall is what allows Lord Hater to [[VillainousRescue stop the drill at the last moment]].]]
* IAmSong: Combined with an IWantSong in the form of "I'm The Bad Guy." Not only does she lay out her plans for total galactic annihilation and absolutely crush Hater's heart, but she sounds like she's having an absolute ''blast'' while doing so.
* AnIcePerson: [[spoiler:After "My Fair Hatey", thanks to Peepers's [[NiceJobBreakingItHero attempt to finally stop her]], he accidentally gives her ice powers along with her lava powers.]]
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: [[spoiler: Wants companionship, but doesn't understand how to attain it, instead trying to seek comfort in the presence of her bots, and in finding people like Wander and Hater to torment]].
* IllKillYou: [[NeverSayDie Albeit with 'destroy' instead of 'kill']], her VillainousBreakdown in the final episode culminates with Dominator desperately shrieking this phrase at Wander, after the latter's KirkSummation.
* InsaneTrollLogic: This exchange from "The Night Out"
-->'''Lord Dominator:''' I command you to stop!
-->'''Sylvia:''' Command me? Who do you think you are?
-->'''Lord Dominator:''' I thought you were my friend. Friends are supposed to do what you tell them to do.
-->'''Sylvia:''' Like a robot? Friends aren't like that. They help each other out, but they're still their own people. Speaking of which, how 'bout helping me fight off this thing?!
-->'''Lord Dominator:''' What?! No one gets to tell me what to do. Fight it off yourself!
** and this summation of the events:
-->'''Lord Dominator:''' I'm back! today I learned that friends are dumb and way overrated. They never let you tell them what to do and sometimes they even try to tell you what to do!
* ItsAllAboutMe: Dominator is [[EvilCannotComprehendGood completely baffled]] by the idea of someone doing something she doesn't want them to do.
* IWorkAlone: She explicitly states in "I'm the Bad the Guy" that she doesn't want anyone's assistance and/or praise. All she wants to do is to destroy everything in her path.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even in personal matters, she is consistently arrogant, egocentric, and callous.
* KingpinInHisGym: In "My Fair Hatey" TheStinger shows her vacuuming, taking inventory of her equipment/minions, and polishing her ship's control panel.
* KnightOfCerebus: The first and only character so far that even Wander is completely afraid of. Everything, save for the revelation of her identity, is played straight about this character.
** Unlike the villains we've seen so far, [[spoiler:her ultimate goal is not to rule the galaxy, but to DESTROY it and all its inhabitants just for fun.]]
** Not to mention, she's the first character to actually [[spoiler:permanently kill off another character.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: Never shows a sign of any concern for the feelings of anyone else.
* LaserGuidedKarma: After nearly destroying the entire galaxy and rejecting all attempts at forgiveness, when she's finally defeated she ends up completely humiliated with no ship, no minions, no friends, no armour, no powers, inadvertently undid all her destruction when she attempted to KickTheDog, and didn't learn a single thing from her experience.
* LaughablyEvil: In armor form, she is the most frightening being in the universe. In non-armor form, she has an odd sense of humor.
* LavaAddsAwesome: Everything Dominator owns; her armor, her robots, [[LethalLavaLand her ship]]; is made of molten rock [[PlanetLooters that she harvests from countless planets]]. The lava apparently either can be remotely controlled or has some sort of sentience, because [[EvilEvolves it solidifies and liquifies to adapt to the situation]]. (i.e. Prison bars instantly regenerate and reinforce themselves when bent or broken.)
* LeanAndMean: When not in her armor.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Dominator's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xABxQjilIJ8 leitmotif]] focuses on electronic and metallic discord, with a heavy bass line.
* LetsGetDangerous: Her armored form is for this exact purpose. Half the time she’s LaughablyEvil; the other half she acts as the show’s KnightOfCerebus, her emotions [[MalevolentMaskedMen literally behind a threatening mask]]. This trope is also [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by Dominator [[NervesOfSteel as her way of keeping a cool head]].
--> '''Dominator:''' OO! [[MagmaMan MAGMA]] [[ArmCannon CANNONS, CLASSIC!]] [[BigYes YES!]] *EvilLaugh* *inhale* Okay, calm down D. *inhale* Focus. *inhale* [[GameFace Game face. *inhale* Game face]]. It’s '''[[EvilSoundsDeep go time. *resumes evil laughter*]]'''
* LonelyAtTheTop: Dominator has no friends or allies as, in the word of supervising director Dave Thomas, "[loneliness is] the natural side effect of destroying every planet you come across." Dominator still ''desires'' the intellectual stimulation of contact with real people--as opposed to sycophantic robots--but doesn't think it's worth those people disagreeing with her. [[IgnoredEpiphany So she goes back to her stupid robots]], apparently having [[CompanionCube deluded herself into thinking they actually understand her]].
* LonersAreFreaks: She developed and built all her technology, weapons, and army alone. She became the top villain in the galaxy alone. She's planning to [[spoiler:destroy the galaxy for the hell of it]], after which she will really be '''alone'''. Inverted and deconstructed, [[spoiler:as it is revealed that her loneliness actually stems from her evil, rather than her evil stemming from her loneliness, and while she does desire companionship, she is far too arrogant to admit it.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: She isn't opposed to using her feminine charms on others in order to further her goals.
* MarriedToTheJob: Evil-doing is all she cares about and all she really knows. This, combined with how much of a complete jerk she is, is the reason why she has no friends whatsoever.
* MoralMyopia: She believes friendship is about friends doing everything she says, yet when the one friend she managed to make asks her to do something, she flat out refuses, and leaves in disgust.
* MorphWeapon: What Dominator’s gloves ''can’t'' turn into is only limited to her violent imagination.
* MysteriousPast: Nothing is known about her life prior to becoming a galactic conqueror and the writers have said they're keeping it that way.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: [[AristocratsAreEvil Lord]] Dominator.
* NearVillainVictory: [[spoiler:By the end of the season, she has succeeded in destroying ''the entire galaxy'', sans for a secret planet she knew nothing about.]]
* NerdInEvilsHelmet: When her helmet's faceplate is down and her armor is up, Lord Dominator [[TopHeavyGuy looks]] and [[EvilSoundsDeep sounds]] like a fairly typical GalacticConquerer. Underneath, however, is an excitable GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe who'll gush over her how cool her latest villainous acts were as soon as she's alone. However, the trope is played with in that Lord Dominator is still a complete sociopath, even when she's in private.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In "The Flower" her attempt to KickTheDog by killing the flower [[spoiler:accidentally spreads the flower's seeds across the galaxy, [[HopeSproutsEternal bringing life back to the planets she destroyed and undoing all her work]]]].
* NoNonsenseNemesis: As goofy and {{Adorkable}} as she can act, every one of her acts of destruction is played straight.
* NoOntologicalInertia: [[spoiler:Her robots stop working after her ship is destroyed. Averted however, with the rest of the Galaxy, which remains destroyed but slowly grows back]].
* TheNoseless: Doesn't stop her from being able to sneeze from catching hay fever, though.
* NoSocialSkills: Isn't very good at interacting with someone when not tormenting them.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Many people believed Dominator to be a teenager when seeing her unmasked for the first time. Despite her youthful appearance, she is in fact a grown woman.
* OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler:Her true plan is to destroy the galaxy by draining Volcanium from every planet in it.]]
* OneWomanArmy: "The Battle Royale" turns into Lord Dominator vs. everyone else. She still wins.
* OutsideContextProblem: In the second season premiere, she suddenly showed up from a completely different galaxy than every established character. It seems likely that she ''[[WhereIWasBornAndRazed destroyed]]'' her own galaxy, and possibly many others.
* PointyEars: Has a set of almost elf-like ears.
* PsychopathicWomanchild: She loves causing pain, and she's immature in more than a superficial sense. Ultimately, her genocidal LackOfEmpathy stems from an ''extremely'' childish form of [[ItsAllAboutMe egomania]]: she thinks everyone is worthless because they don't instantly obey her without question, so she may as well just destroy them for fun. [[spoiler:She [[DidntThinkThisThrough never even considered]] what [[OmnicidalManiac destroying the galaxy]] would actually even ''mean'' for her--being left in a barren void with no one left to torment or anything else to do. Her immaturity especially comes through in the finale, where, after being stripped of her powers and resources, she's basically reduced to a whiny teenager.]]
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Similar to Hater's. .
* RedemptionRejection: She refuses to befriend Wander at every turn, [[spoiler:even in the finale, where she's stripped of all her power]]
* TheRival: To Hater, until The Battle Royale.
* {{Sadist}}: She tortures, torments, and destroys because she enjoys the suffering, pain, and despair of others. [[spoiler:Dominator [[VillainousBreakdown freaks out]] when Wander points that means she really ''does'' depend on other people, even if it's just to be her victims.]]
* SamusIsAGirl: The armor she wears gives the appearance of a large, muscular man and a [[EvilSoundsDeep deep]] male voice.
* SecretIdentityVocalShift: Wearing her helmet lets her speak with a modified voice provided by [[CastAsAMask a separate voice actor]].
* SilentAntagonist: In her debut episode, she never says anything until her reveal scene at the very end.
* ShadowArchetype: Like Lord Hater, they are both determined to become the greatest villain and are the EvilCounterpart to Wander. The difference is that Dominator represents what Hater could be if he were a more ruthless, competent villain who wants to conquer the universe ForTheEvulz and not because of a ControlFreak nature.
* ShesGotLegs: [[http://68.media.tumblr.com/b91b971eb485c571001ac6c9120ef7db/tumblr_inline_o856irPPAS1r7wdap_1280.png The floor-length skirt she wears]] has slits on both sides that show off her long, curvy legs.
* SheIsTheKing: Called "Lord Dominator" by her own robotic minions.
* ShouldersOfDoom: In both outfits that she wears. Note the SpikesOfVillainy.
* TheSociopath: She's an even worse boss than Hater, going as far as to destroy her (sentient) bots when they fail a mission. The reveal in "My Fair Hatey" that [[spoiler:she intends to destroy the whole galaxy for fun]] leaves no doubt that there isn't a single drop of empathy on her small black heart.This is also subtly reinforced by the fact that what little emotion her bots can show is constantly referred to as protocol and only invoked when she commands it to be.
* SweetPollyOliver: She wears armor that makes her look and sound like a man until no one else is around. This is to catch others off guard and gain an upper hand against them, as Dominator is a expert tactician and knows just what to do to manipulate others.
* ThisCannotBe: [[spoiler:Her reaction to Lord Hater overpowering her drill before throwing it straight through her ship with the support of the rebels (who are giving a beatdown to her army along with Hater's army).]]
--> '''Dominator:''' [[spoiler:How is this happening?! T-They're just a bunch of goofy idiots!]]
* TheVamp: While she usually likes to take out her foes with force, she is not against using her good looks to distract people before finishing them off.
* VictoryIsBoring: In the final episodes, [[spoiler:Lord Dominator has destroyed almost the entire galaxy, save for a single, hidden planet.]] She believes she's won, and finds it so boring that [[spoiler:she's absolutely delighted when she discovers that there's a final planet to be destroyed.]]
* VillainousBreakdown:
** She has one when Bot 13 turns on her near the end of "The Bot", though she regains her composure quickly.
** She has another one in "My Fair Hatey" as Frostonium freezes her ship, [[spoiler:but again, she regains her composure when she discovers that the ship actually incorporated the Frostonium, making her more powerful than ever.]]
** Suffers a rather spectacular one in the series finale when [[spoiler: Lord Hater wrecks her ship and Wander figures out that she suffers from crushing loneliness. Then Wander saves her life and offers her his friendship, despite all her attempts to crush his spirit causing her to throw a massive temper tantrum and basically storm away from the Galaxy like an angsty teenager.]]
* VillainSong: "I'm the Bad Guy," which is all about how she's not the DamselInDistress, your girlfriend, or someone who can be rescued. She's a bad guy, and she loves it.
* WalkingSpoiler: One can't really talk much about Dominator without spoiling the GenderReveal.
* WeaksauceWeakness: [[spoiler:"The Flower" reveals that she has a violent pollen allergy]]. This not only incapacitates her, but also [[spoiler:breaks her speech with constant sneezing; to the point that her robots are incapable of understanding her orders to chase Wander.]] If that wasn't enough, [[spoiler: the sneezing sounds [[BreakTheHaughty humiliatingly adorable]].]] However, this isn't exactly a practical weakness to be used against her.
* WeWillMeetAgain: In the finale's stinger, Dominator is dead set on [[spoiler:getting revenge on the "bunch of dorks" who defeated her]], and since Word Of God is that [[spoiler: [[https://suspendersofdisbelief.tumblr.com/post/155267944346 "Dom was a big part ]] [[https://suspendersofdisbelief.tumblr.com/post/151350253686 of the third season plan"]],]] we know for a fact that she really did mean it.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Only when she's not wearing her armor is her white hair visible, but her heart is equally black in both forms.
* WickedHeartSymbol: Her crop top/suit sports a big red heart symbol that looks like its painted in blood.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Despite her overwhelming firepower, she never destroyed Wander, Sylvia, Hater, or Peepers when she had the chance. [[spoiler:Wander figures out in the finale that this is because she wanted their company, even if it was in the form of bullying and tormenting them]].
* WomanChild: Her galaxy wrecking tour is basically a bullying power trip.
* YourMakeupIsRunning: Her signature look is black makeup dripping from her eyes like tears.
* YouthfulFreckles: To add the the disonance of being an AxCrazy yet {{Adorkable}} person.

[[folder:Emperor Awesome]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SamRiegel

The shark-headed, lipstick-wearing Emperor Awesome is a Bro from Outer Space, who has the credentials to back up his name. He is another of the main villains in the show, and as such, is engaged in a halfhearted rivalry with Lord Hater (who takes it much more seriously than Awesome does). Awesome has an army of soldiers with fists for heads.
* AbhorrentAdmirer: He gets reactions ranging from disgust to violence from anyone he tries to seduce, especially Sylvia.
* AffablyEvil: Though he can be an arrogant {{Jerkass}}, he has the personality of a laid-back party animal.
* AgentPeacock: He's a flamboyant shark-man thing who enjoys tanning and wearing lipstick; he also rides a ''fire-breathing dinosaur that can also shoot lasers from its eyes'' in combat and controls a entire legion of "Fist Fighters". [[MeaningfulName He's earned his title, alright]].
* AlasPoorVillain: Even ''he'' deserves some sympathy after seeing how traumatized he was about his experiences being [[spoiler: Dominator's prisoner]].
* AmbiguousDisorder: [[spoiler:Heavily implied to have developed PTSD after his encounter with Dominator.]]
* AssholeVictim: Downplayed, because he survived. But he was held prisoner and tortured by [[spoiler: Lord Dominator]].
* AwesomenessIsVolatile: His parties are so over-the-top that they ''[[EarthShatteringKaboom destroy planets]]''.
** Especially when he turns this trope UpToEleven in, "The Party Animal".
* BigBadWannabe: Though he can actually be a threat, ''Lord Hater'' is a better BigBad than he. Commander Peepers tells him it's because he spends all of his time doing pointless things like picking on "nerds" and partying, rather than setting any actual goals to strive for as a villain.
* BreakTheHaughty: Downplayed. He's still as arrogant as ever, but his experiences being [[spoiler: Dominator's prisoner]] has left him too traumatized to do any real villainy.
* BrightIsNotGood: His bright and flashy shows usually end with the destruction of the planet.
* CallingYourAttacks: He does this before he attacks.
* DepravedBisexual: Actually averted, since his evilness has nothing to do with his sexuality beyond the fact that he's a bit of a creep.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: He shows no signs of being a villain in his first two appearances. "The Party Animal" shows he's more malicious.
* EarthShatteringKaboom: His party's usually result in this.
* EvilerThanThou: On the receiving end of this, ''all the time''.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin His fist fighters are exactly that: soldiers with fists for heads.
* ExtremeOmnisexual: Hits on Sylvia and [[spoiler:a sandwich]] within the span of a single episode.
** In "The Boy Wander", he hits on a ''boa constrictor'' (that he is wearing like a feather boa), but it's also not interested.
* HandsomeLech: Those calves might be ready for market, but nobody's buying.
* ItsAllAboutMe: He can't begin to comprehend why the crowd on the planet only cheers when he says that he's leaving. He even adds "But I'm never coming back!...ever." The crowd cheers louder.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even more so than Hater.
* {{Leitmotif}}: ''Let's Get Awesome''.
* MadeOfIron: He once survived getting punched through a planet.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: He's heavily [[FightUnscene implied]] to have been given one by Lord Hater for belittling and humiliating Commander Peepers.
* ObliviouslyEvil: He thinks he's the LifeOfTheParty, but to everyone else he's a planet-killing menace.
* OffStageVillainy: ''The Party Animal'' introduces his main villainous behavior, but outside of that none of his appearances having doing much that could considered evil. Despite that in Season 2 he's consistently appeared on the top 10 of the villain leader board.
* PsychopathicManChild: Probably not as much as Lord Hater.
* RageQuit: In "The Party Animal." After realizing he's been bested by Wander, he rips the knob off his giant speaker and throws it at his wide screen.
* RealMenWearPink:
** He wears lipstick.
** He wears pink pants.
** He has two bands, purple-and-pink, on his muscles.
* {{Robeast}}: His cybernetic, fire-breathing, laser-shooting battle dinosaur.
* SharkMan: Is a muscle flexing dude with a shark head.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He's convinced he's the single greatest thing in existence and that he's doing planets a favor by having parties that destroy them.
* SoreLoser: After Wander beats him in a dance contest, he leaves the planet, claiming that it's "too lame" for him to party on.
* TotallyRadical: He talks like a FratBro SurferDude.
--> '''Emperor Awesome:''' Bro, do you even know how hard I slam?

[[folder:Badlands Dan]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Clancy Brown
A big, tough Western bad guy residing in Doom Stone. Or so it appears.
* DemBones: Has a cattle skull for a head.
* HornsOfVillainy: Comes with the cattle-skull-head
* JerkassFacade: [[spoiler: Like everyone in Doom Stone, he only pretend to be evil to avoid trouble.]]
* {{Outlaw}}: Claims to be a wanted man, with a ten-million credit ransom on his head.
* VerbalTic: In his introductory scene, every sentence he speaks ends with the pronoun "an".

[[folder:Papa Doom]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson

The biggest, toughest crime boss in Doomstone. Or so it seems.
* TheDon: He's Doomstone's local crime lord. [[spoiler: Until the end, that is]].
* EvilSoundsDeep: Courtesy of Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson. [[spoiler: He's not really evil, though]].
* JerkassFacade: [[spoiler: He is a softie pretending to be evil.]]
* TheNapoleon: Even Wander's about twice his height.

[[folder:The Troll]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Keith Ferguson

A small, greedy troll who grows bigger and stronger when people respond to his insults.
* AttentionWhore: "PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!"
* FatBastard: He turns into this as more insults are fed to him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Constantly insults people to grow bigger, and then tries to steal all the Baaaa-hallans food.
* MakeMyMonsterGrow: By responding to his insults.
* SheatheYourSword: The only way to beat him. You give him more attention he'll just keep getting more powerful. But if you ignore him, he shrinks and can be easily dealt with.
* {{Troll}}: In ''every'' sense.

[[folder:Sourdough the Evil Sandwich]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Rich Fulcher

A body-snatching villain who spent thousands of years building an immense fleet of destructive warships. Due to Wander thwarting his attempt to steal Lord Hater's body, he's now forced to inhabit a sandwich for the next thousand years.
* AnthropomorphicFood: For the next 1000 years at least.
* BerserkButton: Desperate suck-ups really piss it off.
* BodySurf: His main ability. Unlike most examples, it appears that he can only use this once every thousand years.
* {{Catchphrase}}: '''EEEVILLLLLLL SANDWIIIIICHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!'''
* EnergyBeing: His true form resembles a purple cloud with a head-shaped area for speech.
%% GenderBender:
* KillerRabbit: While only as physically dangerous as one would expect a talking sandwich to be, he still retains his fleet and is still conquering worlds.
* MeaningfulName: As Queen Entozoa. 'Entozoa' refers to intestinal parasites such as tapeworms.
* NoBiologicalSex: Being an energy creature who is constantly swapping vessels, Sourdough has no sex or gender.
* NoNameGiven: While it adopts the name of whatever person (or food) it possesses, the EnergyBeing itself has no name.

[[folder:The Black Cube of Darkness]]
A mysterious... well... black cube that speaks in distorted Latin. He was shown to be down on his luck through most of his life, but despite this, he tends to be a very successful villain. After "The Battle Royale", he gives up villainy to try and live a normal life, but ends up being ostracized by everyone around him. At least, until Wander and Sylvia show up.
* AltumVidetur: Speaks in distorted Latin.
* BeingGoodSucks: Since he quit villainy, he's living life as a minimum wage worker, feared by everybody, and unable to use his talent of sucking souls. When he rescues one of the punks harassing him, the punk rallies a mob against him.
* BurgerFool: In "The Black Cube", he worked as a cashier at a fast food restaurant with a MeanBoss, and the kids who mocked him before came to order a complicated meal. Out of anger, he destroyed the cash register, causing him to be fired.
* ConspicuousCG: Is rendered in CGI.
* CripplingOverspecialization: He's good at stealing souls and being a cube, neither of which are useful to the life of a normal person.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: It's shown his soul stealing ability can be used to temporarily paralyze people nonlethally. He can potentially use this if he got a job as a cop (using it to paralyze criminals).
* DarkIsEvil: The Black Cube is feared by most people he interacts with solely from being a being of pure darkness.
* DarkIsNotEvil: In "The Black Cube", he is revealed to be misunderstood due to being pure darkness, even when he tries to act nice.
* TheDreaded: On the planet he lives, all his neighbors are horrified of him.
* EldritchAbomination: Is heavily implied to be this since looking at it will induce a kind of [[BrownNote hypnotic state that turns your eyes completely black]].
* FreakOut: After a '''very''' bad day and confronted by an angry mob, he begins to lose it.
* HarmlessVillain: Despite having the power to steal souls, no one takes him seriously, and in reality, he isn't all that powerful. Most of this comes from his lack of hands.
** Despite this, he tends to be high up on the [[http://wanderoveryonder.wikia.com/wiki/Galactic_Villain_Leaderboard Galactic Villain Leaderboard]].
** His downfall was due to being unable to obtain the "Ring of Invincibility" [[spoiler: (which was actually a fake ring anyways)]].
* HeelFaceTurn: Goes through one in "The Black Cube"
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://youtu.be/pMGnuYV2WGE "Just a Little Black Cube of Darkness"]].
* LogicalWeakness: ''Everyone'' is scared when it makes it all the way to the Ring of Invincibility in "The Battle Royale"... only to clink against it, unable to actually put it on, and hover away in dejection.
* MeaningfulRename: Got the nickname "Little Black Cube of Sunshine" at the end of "The Black Cube".
* MonsterSobStory: In the episode "The Black Cube", the Cube's life is shown to be very miserable. He lives in a run down apartment (which he barely afford rent to), his girlfriend broke up with him, he is mocked by street bullies for being different, he works as a measly cashier, and he is feared by everyone. This goes on until [[spoiler: Wander and Sylvia help improve his life.]]
* NoBiologicalSex: He's a black cube.
* PowerFloats: He levitates all the time.
* PureEnergy: Implied to be a being of pure darkness.
* SinisterGeometry: Its literally a sinister geometric shape.
* TearsOfJoy: Has one at the end of "The Black Cube" [[note]] Although, technically it wasn't an actual tear, but rather a drop of rainwater on his face (drawn in by Wander).[[/note]]
* YourSoulIsMine: His power.

[[folder:Little Bits]]
->'''Voiced by:''' G. Hannelius

Little Bits first appears as a stray kitten who's starving in an alien city. Of course, Wander takes pity on her and is soon waiting on her hand and foot. However, Sylvia is suspicious of her, and rightly so--she's actually a BountyHunter who plans to turn our heroes over to Lord Hater. She later returns with a new scheme in which she stars in "cute kitten" videos that turn everyone who watches them (except Sylvia) into her brainwashed slaves.
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: She has purple fur.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: She starts out as one in her debut episode. When the characters enter rough desert terrain, Wander gives her his shoes[[note]]after he's already given her his hat and some of his fur[[/note]] to protect her "poor exposed little footsies". In later appearances, she reverts to this trope when she wears clothes at all.
* BewareTheCuteOnes: She uses her cuteness to her advantage.
* BountyHunter: Her actual profession.
* CatsAreMean: Once we learn who and what she really is.
* CuteIsEvil: She may look cute, but she weaponizes her cuteness to get what she wants.
* CuteKitten: She plays this trope for all it's worth.
* CuteMute: She doesn't say anything for the first half of her debut episode.
* ElmuhFuddSyndwome: She speaks this way, much to Lord Hater's amusement. [[GotMeDoingIt It rubs off]] on Sylvia during their confrontation in "The Catastrophe".
* EnfantTerrible: A bounty hunter's gotta be dangerous, even if she is just a child.
* GreenEyes: People she hypnotizes get these.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: "Little Bits" was a name given to her by Wander. Her real name is [[NoNameGiven unknown]].
** Although, she has been shown to answer to this name in Season 2, implying that she may have taken on this as her real name.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Lil' Bits gives a brutal one to Wander before using him as a pillow.She claims to have tested the limits of her prisoner, but with all she put him through, you have to wonder how much of that she did ForTheEvulz.
* NoOntologicalInertia: Those who were released from her mind control remember nothing that happened up to that point besides first seeing her.
* PuppyDogEyes: She uses them to hypnotize Wander. Sylvia does the same to try to snap Wander out of it, leading to a face off between her and Little Bits over who can make the biggest puppy dog face.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: She plans to use a "teleportation pad" to deliver herself, Wander and Sylvia to Hater's ship. However, the pad takes a long time to charge up, and by the time it's ready to use Sylvia rescues herself and Wander, leaving Little Bits to arrive on Hater's ship alone.
* TheQuietOne: She spends the first half of her debut episode communicating with only head shakes/nods and giggles.
* WalkingSpoiler: Most of the information about her gives away the fact that she's evil, which is a plot twist in her first episode.
* VagueAge: It's unknown if she's an evil kitten or an adult villainess posing as a kitten. Even WordOfGod [[FlipFlopOfGod seems unable to decide. ]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: The end credits show Lord Hater lowering Little Bits into a vat of boiling oil for failing to capture Wander, only for her to hypnotize Lord Hater with her puppy dog eyes.

[[folder:Dr. Screwball Jones]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Music/WeirdAlYankovic\\
"Doctor ''Screwball if you please! I've got an online [=Ph.D=]!''"

Little is known about the banana-shaped, Bozo-haired, mustachioed alien who goes by Dr. Screwball Jones. He is the only villain to make Wander turn serious and go into cape and mask hero mode. Why? His philosophy is the twisted reflection of Wander's. They both want the universe to be happy, but Screwball believes people can be made happy by force. His doctorate is an online [=Ph.D=] taped to the wall of his spaceship laptop and all, and he's quite serious (if he can be said to be serious about anything) about being referred to as ''Doctor'' Screwball Jones. He is also an incorrigible punster, so you shouldn't [[IncrediblyLamePun incorrige]] him; but Wander often does as it's banter-as-battle when the two of them get going.
* ArchEnemy: To Wander. It seems to be one-sided, however, not unlike Wander with Hater.
* AnthropomorphicFood: He seems to be a giant living banana.
* BadassMoustache: He's one of the few villains that Wander takes seriously, and he has a moustache.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Sylvia finds out the hard way that this guy is more dangerous than he seems.
* CurbStompBattle: Beats up Wander while singing.
** He's on the receiving end of this in "The Battle Royale".
* EvilCounterpart: To Wander, both wanting nothing more than to spread happiness across the galaxy (the difference being that Screwball does so by forcing them).
* FunPersonified: Well, Screwball thinks he is, and that he and Wander would make a great team together.
* GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul: His M.O.
* InformedAttribute: Despite Wander insisting that Jones' thinks he's in the right, Jones himself acts like a typical villainous clown, excitedly proclaiming his plot as being 'foul.' (or 'fowl') The only real indication he gives about his skewed worldview comes off as a typical WeCanRuleTogether speech.
* KnightOfCerebus: Parodied, considering one of the few villains Wander takes seriously is basically an intergalactic prankster.
* LaughablyEvil: He's pretty ridiculous.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: He has an online Doctorate, he's also one of the few villains that Wander treats as a true threat.
* MulticoloredHair: It adds to his MonsterClown appearance.
* MusicalAssassin: Has an accordion that is also a laser gun.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Sylvia thinks Screwball is just a joke, but quickly admits that endless TickleTorture really ''is'' terrible, even if it's completely stupid. He's also the second most dangerous individual just behind [[KnightOfCerebus Lord Dominator]]
* NotSoSimilar: Tries to tell Wander that they're NotSoDifferent, in that they both want everyone to be happy, but Screwball wants people to be happy against their will.
* ObliviouslyEvil: Wander says Screwball thinks he's actually doing good by [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul forcing people to be happy]].
* PungeonMaster: As befitting an evil jokester. TheStinger has him coming up with new ones.
* SlasherSmile: Gives one to a beaten-up Wander at the end of his VillainSong.
* ShadowArchetype: Like Wander, he's a happy go lucky spacefarer who wants to make everyone happy. The difference is that he represents what would happen if Wander became HeWhoFightsMonsters, considering he causes the "happiness" through force.
* ShockAndAwe: Has a electric hand.
* VillainSong: "Let the Pun Fit the Crime".
* WellIntentionedExtremist: All he wants to do is make people happy--even if he has to force happiness on them. Wander even describes him as "doing bad things he thinks are actually good".
* WingdingPupils: Has spinning spirals for eyes.

[[folder:Major Threat/Jeff]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Piotr Michael

Lord Hater's villainous idol who had a change of heart after meeting someone named Tumbleweed implied (and later confirmed) to be Wander under a different name.
* TheAtoner: He became this after his heel-face turn.
* CoolOldGuy: Sort of takes this role towards Hater, trying to guide him in the right direction in life just like he had gone through.
* EvilIsHammy: Even if its just an act, he really plays it up in his FaceHeelTurn with Lord Hater.
--> "Major Threat will not abide by such a disgusting display of optimism!!"
* {{Expy}}: Cthulu in terms of looks, and [[Film/TheBigLebowski The Dude]] in terms of personality.
* HeelFaceTurn: He went through one in the past. [[spoiler:Thanks to Wander.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: An ominous and alien-sounding tune, referencing his phenomenal power and (former) menacing status.
** He has a tropical tune as Jeff, reflecting his change of heart and hippie personality.
* MindOverMatter: Telekinesis, brainwashing, forcefields; he's got it all.
* {{Mooks}}: He had an army of purple squid-like creatures, complete with a mustached one that is (presumably) his version of Commander Peepers. Whether they are still with him after he became Jeff is unknown.
* NewAgeRetroHippie: Possibly even moreso than Wander!
* PredecessorVillain: Major Threat is Lord Hater's idol and source of inspiration in spite of the two not even living in the same ''galaxy''. Learning that Major Threat or "Jeff" as he currently prefers to be called was [[HeelFaceTurn "wanderized"]] makes Hater afraid of suffering the same fate. "The Waste of Time" reveals they share (or rather, shared) many other attributes as well.
* PurpleIsPowerful: He wears purple robes and his powers emit a purple aura.
* TheRival: To Admiral Admirable, a unicycle-riding hipster narwhal with literal foot soldiers, who was the Emperor Awesome to his Lord Hater.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: The FaceHeelTurn Hater gets him to go through turns out to be this for Hater.
* ThatManIsDead: He would rather go by Jeff than Major Threat.
* TricksterMentor: Well, kind of. He ends up having to fake a FaceHeelTurn as a last resort to try and bring out the good in his "student".

[[folder:Something The So-And-So]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Sam Riegel

An incredibly insecure and pathetic excuse for a villain.
* AffablyEvil: Due to the fact that he's [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain hardly a villain at all]].
* ApologizesALot: Often mumbles apologies amidst his stuttering.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: {{Implied|Trope}}. Despite his ShrinkingViolet nature, Something was able to conquer two planets ''and'' be the first one to get to the "Ring of Invincibility".
* FailOSuckyName: Being a villain while having a name like ''"Something The So-And-So"'' doesn't make him look like a serious threat.
* HarmlessVillain: Big time. Wander easily convinces him to give up the supervillain life.
* HeelFaceTurn: Goes through one after receiving encouragement from Wander in "The Matchmaker". By the finale, he's no longer a villain.
* ImprovisedClothes: He wears a beanie, a tea kettle "mask", a mitten, a rubber glove, underwear, a scuba flipper, a green pump, and a blue cape. Yeah.
* ShrinkingViolet: Suffers from a lack of self-confidence, which proves to squander his attempts at villainy.

--> '''Voiced by:''' Keith Ferguson
An old, frail veteran villain with an army of tin-can robots. He's the nemesis to Starbella.

* EvilOldFolks: Pretty much is only two character traits are "old" and "evil".
* FeelingTheirAge: His power staff now doubles as a walker, and you can hear his bones moving with him. Poor guy can't even raise his voice or let out an evil laugh without coughing anymore.
* LeanAndMean: Stick-thin and very nefarious.
* MechaMooks: His steampunk robots, which reflect his seniority.
* ScrewThisImOutOfHere: In "The Battle Royale" he decides that he is too old for this and leaves... slowly.
* VillainousCrush: He actually has one on Starbella.

!!Other Characters

[[folder:Prince Cashmere]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/BillFagerbakke

The noble ruler of Baaaaa-halla, Prince Cashmere is kind, but is as courageous as a sheep-man-warrior can be.
* BadassCape: Lovingly crafted for him by his Nana Ba-ba.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Cashmere is noble and kindhearted, but he won't hesitate to fight anyone who harms his people, tries to take their food-- or insults his cape.
* BoisterousBruiser: He as loud as he is strong.
* ExtremeOmniGoat: He and the rest of the Baaaaa-hallans. They have everything but the kitchen sink on their feasting table.

[[folder:The Lords of Illumination]]

A group of wise aliens who put Wander through a SecretTestOfCharacter in "The Box".
* RainbowMotif: They flash all different colors!
* SecretTestOfCharacter: They put Wander and Sylvia through one in "The Box".
* SufficientlyAdvancedAliens: But not quite enough to deal with Wander and Sylvia like they wished they would.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TaraStrong

The leader of the Ballzarians, Beeza is levelheaded and calm, to an almost disturbing degree.
* DissonantSerenity: See that pretty, sunny smile on her profile picture? Know what she's saying ''at that very moment''?
-->"There aren't any planets left in our system. We have absolutely no idea where we're going. We'll just fly through space until we run out of fuel. Or food. Whichever comes first. How does one fight off cannibals? Some sort of pointy stick, I assume."
* MonochromeEyes: Her scleroses are black while her pupils are white.
* SeenItAll: Of the "weary traveler" variety. A giant dog destroyed their planets and forced them to move so many times, she and her people have become apathetic towards it, calling it ''routine''.
* TheStoic: Beeza and the other Balzarians accept that Buster repeatedly destroying whatever planet they're living on is just the way things are.
* WomanInWhite: Wears a white robe, just like all members of her race.


A gigantic puppy who plays with planets until he destroys them.
* AdorableAbomination: Buster's a planet destroying CosmicHorror...that takes the form of an adorable puppy.
* CanisMajor: He's an oversized puppy who just wants to play.
* FluffyTheTerrible: Known to the Balzarians as the "Planet Buster".
* GeniusLoci: He becomes the Balzarians' new homeworld.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A carnival-esque diddy accompanied by dog barks to the beat. Counts as SoundtrackDissonance to his world-ending chewing habit.
* GrossUpCloseUp: How the aliens view Buster from their viewpoint. Zoomed out, he's just an adorable dog.
* MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds: From his point of view, planets are just balls that he loves playing with. He has no inkling of the destruction of entire civilizations this causes.
* PlanetEater: Well, okay, more like Planet ''Chewer'', but close enough.
* UncertainDoom: [[spoiler: According to supervising producer Dave Thomas, [[https://owner-of-wendys.tumblr.com/post/144436272369 it's implied in "The End of the Galaxy" that Buster was]] KilledOffScreen by Lord Dominator, [[https://owner-of-wendys.tumblr.com/post/146584949304 hence the Balzarians being in the crowd of people]] [[https://owner-of-wendys.tumblr.com/post/146584966104 whose home planets had been destroyed by her.]] Whether or not he's actually dead is incredibly unclear, however, since Dave kept flipping back and forth between [[https://owner-of-wendys.tumblr.com/post/146585014114 confirming Buster's death]], [[https://owner-of-wendys.tumblr.com/post/146592529344 taking]] [[https://owner-of-wendys.tumblr.com/post/146616541499 it]] [[https://owner-of-wendys.tumblr.com/post/146634910559 back]], and [[https://owner-of-wendys.tumblr.com/post/146804216769 avoiding giving out]] [[https://owner-of-wendys.tumblr.com/post/147076715474 straight answers]] to people. Without a season 3 for him to appear (or never appear) in, there's just no way to know for sure.]]

[[folder:Sir Brad Starlight]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JamesMarsden

Brad Starlight is a hero. Just ask him, he'll tell you. But to anyone who knows him, he's more a LegendInHisOwnMind. Make no mistake, he's got the looks, the muscles, and the skills. It's just his inability to cope with reality -- and his rather bratty reaction to it -- when it's right in front of him that makes him so awful at what he does.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: He's of the only human characters in the show, or closest to one since he has no nose.
* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: To Princess Demurra.
* AntiVillain: While self-serving and delusional as "The Enemies" shows, by token of him genuinely believing he is the hero, it means he will take on and attempt to stop other villains if he meets one. Unless Wander shows up.
* BlatantLies: In "The Enemies", he claims Wander ruined his "wedding" to Demurra. Actually, he ''and'' Wander ruined her wedding to Drakor.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: Apparently Demurra wasn't that into him.
* DumbMuscle: Makes many bad decisions and overestimates his own skills.
* EntitledToHaveYou: He insists on having Demurra even after she asks him if they can just be friends.
* FakeUltimateHero: Is incapable of seeing it, even when things don't go in his favor. Not even being unable to pull [[ExcaliburInTheStone an ancient sword from stone meant for a hero]], that Wander pulls out easily, makes him see that, though that could have been {{Foreshadowing}} that he's actually the villain.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: He is unable to pull out the Sword of Destiny, while Wander can easily pull it out. This shows he is not the hero who can save Demurra.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:The end credits tag of "The Hot Shot", which is confirmed to be canon, reveals that he eventually fell in love and started a family with Princess Remora (the lamprey princess who kisses him at the end of the episode)]]
* TheHero: In the episode of the same name, which is subverted, he's actually the WrongGenreSavvy villain. The true hero is Wander.
* HeroWithAnFInGood: Even he does something that could be considered heroic, he fails at it spectacularly.
* HopelessSuitor: Apparently, he's pined over Demurra since they were teenagers.
* IRejectYourReality: He absolutely refuses to accept that [[spoiler: Demurra is marrying Drakor of her own free will, and that his "prophecy" is just something he wrote in his diary when he was fifteen]]. This is taken further in "The Enemies"; Lord Hater points out that Wander (whom they had been trying to capture and destroy all episode) is the ''definition'' of a good guy, but Brad still stubbornly believes he is the hero of the piece.
* {{Jerkass}}: Towards his "sidekick", even more so to his "steed".
* KnightTemplar: Brad genuinely views himself as the hero of a fairy tale. Even though he's absolutely terrible at it.
* LanternJawOfJustice: As of "The Enemies" it comes with AudibleGleam.
* LightIsNotGood: Besides being a complete subversion of fairy tale hero tropes, in a later episode he comes in possession of the light half of an ancient sword (as opposed to Hater's dark half). Then there's also his own name.
* ManChild: Whines whenever everyone isn't following the prophecy right or letting him be the hero.
** PsychopathicManchild: He turns out to be the actual villain in the end... and the prophecy was actually just his diary.
* MilesGloriosus: He's not nearly as good at this hero business as he thinks he is.
* MoralMyopia: In "The Enemies", he's still convinced he's a hero, yet he sees nothing wrong with teaming up with Lord Hater to destroy Wander (whom he blames for something he didn't even do).
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Despite his brawny physique, he's a bit of a wimp. [[spoiler: Princess Demurra manages to overpower and tie him up offscreen.]]
* NeverMyFault: He refuses to admit he is ever wrong about anything, instead blaming everyone else for not following the prophecy, aka his diary. He also blames Wander for ruining his marriage to Demurra, unable to accept he was kidnapping someone who was in love with someone else and that Wander was helping him until learning he was a delusional fraud and did nothing else after that.
* StalkerWithACrush: To Demurra, but thinks he's her one true love.
* WalkingSpoiler: Though it's only for "The Hero," it goes without saying.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Thinks he's the hero of a fairy tale destined to save the princess and wed her. In reality, he's a StalkerWithACrush who lives in delusion because he couldn't take no for an answer. On top of that, he manages to mistake the ''actual'' hero for the {{Sidekick}}, the {{Sidekick}} for the CoolHorse, and the princess' true love for the BigBad, and refuses to budge from this construction no matter how obvious it becomes that he's got everything wrong.
* VillainTeamUp: With Lord Hater in "The Enemies" (Though he believes he "converted" Hater to the side of good).

[[folder:Princess Demurra]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JenniferHale

Demurra is not your typical fairy tale princess. She knows how the fairytale is supposed to go, and knows how to sidestep the tropes.
* ActionGirl: In an offstage moment, [[spoiler:she rescues ''herself'' from Brad.]]
* AmbiguouslyHuman: Like Brad, it's debatable if she's human due to her missing a nose.
* BabiesEverAfter: "The Gift" shows that she has had three kids with [[spoiler: Drakor]].

* InterspeciesRomance: [[spoiler: With "Drake".]]

* BabiesEverAfter: "The Gift" shows that he has had three (hybrid) kids with [[spoiler: Demurra]].

* InterspeciesRomance: [[spoiler: With Demurra.]]
* JerkassFacade: [[spoiler: Turns out he was just tense cause it was his wedding day and he didn't want anything to go wrong.]]

A prince who becomes evil after his father threw away his beloved sock puppet.
* MoralityChain: Exaggerated. Destructor wears a sock as a puppet on his right hand, acting as his ImaginaryFriend. Without the "sock's" guidance, Destructor turns evil.

[[folder:Harvax and Stok]]
->'''Harvax voiced by:''' Creator/JeffBennett\\
'''Stok voiced by:''' Creator/CharlieAdler

Gross garbage pickers, Harvax and Stok are frequent participants in the Galactic Conjunction 9000 race. They are also old rivals of Sylvia's, who know her time bomb tendencies well and taunt her with them.
* BigCreepyCrawlies: Harvax, a giant fly.
* CatchPhrase: "Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock!"
* {{Expy}}:
** Stok is one to [[WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends Bendy]]. Thankfully Stok and Harvax get their just desserts.

[[folder:Trudie Traveller]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Edie [=McClurg=]

Trudie Traveller is a little old alien lady of retirement age, who putts along through space on a scooter, seeing the sights of space. She's rosy-cheeked and sweet as pie ... Until she meets up with Wander, at which point she turns "who has seen the most sights in space" into a competition that almost drives the little orange guy out of his mind. It turns out she cheats -- with clone/doppleganger/android/hologram duplicates of herself.
* AffablyEvil: While she is by no means evil, she did enjoy winding Wander up for the sake of competition. A pretty CoolOldLady otherwise.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Tries to invoke herself as one of these to Wander during the events of "The Tourist", [[spoiler:until TheReveal that she had hired doppelgängers of herself the whole time]].
* CoolOldLady: Despite her evilness, you have to admit that her adventures visiting places make her seem very cool.
* EvilOldFolks: She doesn't make much of an effort to hide her less than pleasant personality.
* MakingASpectacleOfYourself: Wear starshaped glasses.
* MesACrowd: She actually has various clones of herself, explaining why she saw all those planets so fast. Wander never knew, however...
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: She's even smaller than Wander.
* TheRival: To Wander.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Her pride becomes more and more blatant over the course of the episode, to the point where she's practically taunting Wander over how many places she's been to.
* {{Troll}}: She knew what made Wander tick. She managed to get under his skin-- something ''Lord Hater'' still has yet to accomplish.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KariWahlgren

Janet was a dull, lifeless rock of a sentient, talking planet until a visiting Wander found something nice to say about her. Flattered and encouraged by the kindness, Janet began beautifying herself to make Wander feel comfortable and at home. Upon meeting Sylvia and realizing she had a rival for Wander's affections, Janet's friendliness extended to Wander alone; her treatment of Sylvia was passive aggressive, but soon escalated as she realized that Sylvia would not give up and leave Wander with her. Her affection for wander and antipathy for Sylvia reached a fever pitch, at which point even Wander had to admit she was getting scary. She nearly killed the pair with launched volcanic bombs, before realizing she'd gone too far. Breaking down into tears, Janet apologized for her actions, and let the pair depart, ready to resign herself to a lifetime of loneliness. As fate would have it though, Janet's moon, Maurice, is also sentient, and in love with her, so she got her HappyEnding.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Towards Sylvia.
* ForcefulKiss: Tries to give one to Wander against his will, but Sylvia interrupts it with a punch.
* GeniusLoci: She is self-sufficient, self-aware and knows how to take care of Sylvia. In addition, she can basically control anything that happens on her body. She can manifest volcanoes, change entire landscapes, grow plants, create houses, etc.
* GreenThumb: She can control basically anything that happens on her body, which includes growing and controlling plant life.
* KilledOffForReal: By the end of Season 2's StoryArc, Lord Dominator has destroyed every planet except the secret planet. Among the planets that were destroyed, ''Janet'' was one of them.
* JustEatHim: After several attempts at making Sylvia unwelcome, Janet decides to just eat her.
* PossessiveParadise: She does not let Wander go without a fight.
* StalkerShrine: Has one to Wander.
* StealthPun: Possibly unintentional, but [[spoiler:her new love ''literally'' revolves around her.]]

A giant toddler who gets lost on a mall planet, and attaches to Wander and Sylvia.

[[folder:The Insurgent Generals]]
->'''General Outrage voiced by:''' Creator/SteveBlum\\
'''Clipper voiced by:''' Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson\\
'''Brainz voiced by:''' Creator/JeffBennett\\
'''Wild Card voiced by:''' Creator/DwightSchultz
* AffectionateParody: Of military heroes like ''Film/TheDirtyDozen'', the ''Franchise/GIJoe'' crew and ''Series/TheATeam''.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: The other Insurgents never question Wild Card's antics-- probably because they never get in the way of their missions and sometimes can actually help (like having a chicken lay an egg on a bomb to set it off).
* CloudCuckoolander: Wild Card loves non-sequiturs and silly random things.
* EverythingIsAnInstrument: Wild Card used a live chicken as a trumpet. Yes, it makes perfect sense.
* FakeUltimateHero: [[spoiler:They come off as tough, badass heroes, but it turns out their plan was to just inconvenience Lord Hater as they're too scared of him to do anything worse. Their mission was to ruin his bathtub, but they treat it as a great success.]]
* NoIndoorVoice: Let's just say General Outrage is well-named.
* PungeonMaster: Clipper's a real cut-up. He can cut to the quick with his puns, such as "Cut it out!" or "I knew we couldn't cut it." (a line that was storyboarded, but cut from the final product)
* RatedMForManly: Outrage is all about missions, mayhem, '''manliness'''!
* TheSquad: A parodic example.
* SunglassesAtNight: Brainz.
* TechnicolorEyes: Wild Card's eyes are stripes of blue, pink, and green.

[[folder:The Bounty Hunters]]

A trio of bounty hunters that Hater hires in 'The Bounty' to catch Wander: Rongroffle the Huntress, Kilbot 86, and the Potted Plant'.
* OhCrap: Rongroffle has this when she catches Wander, only to see a giant tiger ready to maul her.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Killbot 86 zaps everyone into Hater's ship but Wander, which leads to a mass of Torture Room victims.
* ManEatingPlant: The Potted Plant is revealed to be this.

->'''Voiced by:''' Will Arnett

Sylvia's ex-partner (no, not in that way) who is more tough and adventurous than Wander, but nowhere near as nice.
* DirtyCoward: Sells out Sylvia and bails when Lord Hater and his Watchdogs catch them in his storage facility.
* {{Foil}}: To Wander. Wander is innocent, compassionate, and helpful; Ryder is mean, underhanded, and selfish.
* {{Jerkass}}: A self-serving traitorous criminal.
* MeaningfulName: He's called Ryder because he used to... ride... her (Sylvia).

[[folder:Stella Starbella]]
->'''Voiced by:''' June Squibb

A veteran superhero who seems like a CloudCuckoolander at first, but is actually a badass CoolOldLady.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: She comes off as a senile old lady, but she knows exactly what she is doing. The same trope even applies to her ''cat!''
* CoolOldLady: A superheroine who can kick ass regardless of her age.
* FeelingTheirAge: Though to a much lesser extent than Mandrake.
* IWasQuiteTheLooker: If her comic book is any indication, she used to be pretty hot.
* NonHumanSidekick: Her cat, who is capable of piloting her ship and even singing!
* OldSuperhero: She was once a badass heroine. Age hasn't dulled her one bit though.

* ThirteenIsUnlucky: His number is 13, hinting at the problems throughout the episode he faces as well as his HeroicSacrifice.
* AppropriatedAppellation: His name is bot 13, but he adopts the name "Beep-Boop" after Wander mistakes it for his name.
* TheAce: The most efficient of Dominator's probes, and she wants the others to take after him.
* DefiantToTheEnd: What does he do when a furious Dominator demands him to show the data of the planet he found so she can harvest it? [[spoiler:He retorts that his name is Beep-Boop and deletes the files in her face, knowing well that she would destroy him for that.]]
* DyingAlone: Probably what makes [[spoiler:his HeroicSacrifice even sadder, as he's ejected into space where he burns up alone, while looking at the picture he took with Wander.]] Wander probably never learned what happened to him, [[spoiler:unless he connected the dots when Dominator mentioned she destroyed Bot 13 in the season 2 finale.]]
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler:I...am...Beep-Boop...]]
* {{Foil}}: To Westley. Both obeyed tyrannical villains only to enjoy spending time with Wander. But while Westley was TheRuntAtTheEnd with a fondness for good views and a desire to prove himself, Probe 13 was hyper-competent and needed to discover how much fun the world he wanted to destroy was. [[spoiler: He also further demonstrates Dominator's EvilerThanThou status by being killed by his master, while Hater briefly mourned Westley's apparent death.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Thanks to Wander, he turns good.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:He deletes his data on the planet he met Wander in to protect him and the inhabitants, and as a result [[ThrownOutTheAirlock Dominator ejects him into space where he burns up]].]]
* JustAMachine: {{Averted}} by both Wander who regards him as a friend and by the narration [[spoiler:who treats his HeroicSacrifice as an appropriately tragic moment]]. PlayedStraight by Dominator, who regards his as a disposable robot.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:He chooses to delete the files about the planet he met Wander in to protect him, knowing that Dominator would destroy him for his disobedience.]]
* SenselessSacrifice: [[spoiler:The End Of The Galaxy implies that Dominator found Seacironicus 5 anyway.]]

[[folder:Sylvia's Family]]
Sylvia's mother: Dorothy, her brothers: Bill, Phil, and Gill, and her grandmother who live back on her home planet. They live together in a stone house that would be perfectly normal in ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''.
* BigEater: It must be a species trait.
* DisappearedDad: [[spoiler:Its heavily implied that Sylvia's father died.]]
* HairTriggerTemper: ''Everyone.'' It gets to the point where ''Wander'' eventually snaps.
* JerkJock: Her brothers.
* JerkassFacade: Dorothy treats Sylvia like dirt because she knows that Sylvia came back because she is running away from Dominator, rather than trying to stop her like she did with Hater.
* RacistGrandma: Her grandmother calls Wander a "flithy space hippie" and thinks he wants to steal her purse.
* SoProudOfYou: They are all very proud of how Sylvia has stood up and fought villains like Lord Hater and Dominator.

A ruthless hunter of Franchise/{{alien}}s like Captain Tim.
* ActionGirl: She can compete with Sylvia and Dominator in this category.
* AllThereInTheManual: Her first name is Emily.
* ArtificialLimbs: She has a couple of them as a result of injuries from arachnomoprhs.
* TheComicallySerious: Her hatred of the arachnomorphs is amusingly hammy and exaggerated.
* HeelFaceTurn: While she was never really evil to begin with, the end of the episode has her learn that even creatures like the arachnomorphs can change.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Ellen Ripley]], [[MeaningfulName hence her name sounding like 'ripoff']].
* TheGunslinger: She is in possession of multiple FamilyFriendlyFirearms.
* HunterOfMonsters: She hunts arachnomoprhs.

A group of spectres that haunt a forest in "The Heebie Jeebies".
* CreepyCircusMusic: Their {{Leitmotif}}, with some sinister drumbeats added in to heighten the terror. They also seem to spontaneously generate it to boot.
* EnemyMime: As the name would imply, they are spectral mimes.
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath: Combined with ProphetEyes, their eyes glow a hollow off-white color.
* ImplacableMan: They never stop chasing you down, ''ever'', and can seemingly reach places that regular people would have a very difficult time getting to unassisted and stealthily.
* JumpScare: They live and breath this trope InUniverse [[spoiler: and pull a nasty one on the viewer at the end of the episode.]]
* NiceHat: They all wear a tall top hat as you might find on a circus ringleader.
* NothingIsScarier: All they do for the whole episode is stalk Wander and Sylvia through the forest and bob up and down to discordant circus music. No explanation is given to where they come from and we have no idea what they do to people.
* PaintingTheMedium: A couple of close-ups on them reveals that they have a film grain filter imposed over them, as one might see in an old horror or Grindhouse style movie.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: [[spoiler: This is their purpose; whoever goes through the forest encounters them, and they'll only disappear if you can master your fear of them.]]
* SlasherSmile: And this is also their default and ''only'' expression.

[[folder:Miss Myrtle]]

* TurtlePower: She seems to be a take on the mythological World Turtle.

A pompous geeky wizard in possession of a museum of artifacts.
* InsistentTerminology: There is no such thing as 'zapping' people; its 'translocating' them. Also, his weapon of power is not a 'stick'; its a 'Bo staff'.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even ''Wander'' gets fed up with him!
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: As Wander tells him "Just because you THINK you know everything, doesn't mean you DO!"
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: Shouts "magic!" whenever he uses his powers.
* WizardClassic: A parody version.

[[folder:The Bitties]]
A race of tiny red and blue critters in Neckbeard's museum.
