!!Wander

->''"When I see someone who's in needin', I just gotta help!"''

->'''Voiced by:''' [[Series/ThirtyRock Jack McBrayer]]

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. This often gets him (or Sylvia) in trouble, but usually his kindness is repaid in the end, as whoever he and Sylvia help end up grateful and cheerfully willing to repay the help in kind. Wander's personality flaw is that he tends to get too caught up in things, and as a result often forgets about and neglects Sylvia's feelings. But he's nothing if not sincere, and once reminded, makes the effort to do better by her.
----
Tropes:

* TheAce: Albeit one who doesn't seem to notice that he's the ace, or would even care if he did.
* {{Adorkable}}: Being voiced by [[Series/ThirtyRock Jack McBrayer]] only makes him more Adorkable.
* AllLovingHero: Is friendly to everyone, ''even'' the baddies.
* AmbiguouslyBi: Has shown attraction to both males and females.
* ApologizesALot
* 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.
* 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.
* BeatItByCompulsion: Obessive-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.
* 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.
* 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.
* 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.
* 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."
* FragileSpeedster: As demonstrated in "The Fugitives". He's very fast and strong, but he was easy to catch in that episode.
* 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.
* GoodFeelsGood: His reason for being so helpful all the time.
* GuileHero: Sometimes peeks out from under the lazy idiot disguise.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: He wears a hat, shoes and socks. That's it.
* 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]].
* 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.
* IdeaDing: Wander makes the ding himself whenever he thinks of something.
* IdiotHero: In some episodes. In others, he seems more oblivious than stupid.
* {{Keet}}
* KarmicTrickster: Although he doesn't seem to be aware of this.
* LargeHam: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PysteqOXj-Q Yep.]]
** 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~
* LoveFreak: Seems to be this.
* ManChild: Not as bad as Lord Hater's PsychopathicManchild status.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Sweet, free-spirited Wander as opposed to 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.
* MoralityPet: To Sylvia. In "The Rider", Sylvia admits that being friends with Wander makes her want to be a better person.
* NiceGuy: The promos even call him "The friendliest face in outer space!"
* 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.
%% * TheNoseless:
* 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.
* 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.
* RedheadInGreen: His fur is reddish and he wears a green hat.
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: He likes doing this, such as saying "Bing!" when he gets an idea.
* SpannerInTheWorks: To Lord Hater.
* SweetHomeAlabama: He speaks in a pronounced Southern accent, plays the banjo, and is about the nicest guy you could ever meet.
* UnknownRival: Wander doesn't even seem to be aware that Lord Hater... well... hates him, and actually remembers their encounters ''favorably.'' Doesn't appear to be the case with Sylvia, though.
** Subverted with "The Fugitives." He appears to at least be aware of Lord Hater's danger.
* 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.
* TheWorldIsJustAwesome: His attitude towards the universe, and given the world he lives in it's hard to blame him.
** In "The Prisoner", he says something like that ''in his sleep''.

!!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 any of the others have her sentience or her aggressive temperament. What we do know is that she and Wander are inseperable best friends, and that Sylvia 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 fun-loving 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.
----
Tropes:

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: She wears a saddle and reins. That's it.
* ActionGirl: Especially in "The Pet."
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable: Not as much as Wander, but to an extent.
** BadassArmFold
* BerserkButton: While [[HairTriggerTemper she's far from being the calmest person in the universe]], GOD HELP YOU if you even think about [[MamaBear messing with Wander]].
* BigEater: In "The Fancy Party" she spends the whole party stuffing herself full of finger sandwiches.
** In The Epic Quest, she wolfs down Jellyfish Pie along with Wander.
* BiggerOnTheInside[=/=]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
* 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".
* DeadpanSnarker
* 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 colour.
* GoodIsNotNice: She is often very abrasive and apathetic.
* GoshDangItToHeck[=/=]UnusualEuphemism: Frequently uses phrases such as "[[OhCrap Oh grob]]" or "Flab crammin' ham strangler!" in place of real swearing.
* 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
* TheLadette: Well, she's certainly no dainty flower.
* MamaBear: Whenever she believes Wander to be in danger.
* NotSoAboveItAll: When dealing with Hater she can act just as goofy as Wander.
* MeetMyGoodFriendsLeftyAndRighty: She refers to her fists as "Lady Haymaker and the Duchess of Whaling" in "The Fancy Party".
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Sassy, tough-as-nails personality compared to Wander.
* [[OneManArmy One Woman Army]]
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Wander.
* PrehensileTail
* SapientSteed
* SheCleansUpNicely: Played with. 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.
* SirSwearsALot: Though it's of a GoshDangItToHeck variety in the style of WesternAnimation/YosemiteSam 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.
* SleepCute: Of the non-romantic sort with Wander, when they curl up together, or all by herself when she goes nose to tail.
* StraightMan: To Wander.
* 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".
* {{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".

[[folder:Lord Hater and His Army]]

[[quoteright:258:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lordhaterofficial_8734.jpg]]
!!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 behaviours in common with an awkward teenage boy.
----
Tropes:


* {{Badass}}: During the last part of "The Picnic" - this is a guy who, in a towering rage, demolishes an army, takes down a dinosaur single handedly and ''punches a guy '''through''' a planet.'' This makes his total inability to do anything about Wander that much funnier.
* BigBad
* ButtMonkey: Full stop.
* CardCarryingVillain: Happily acknowledges he's evil, and is doing this just cause he likes it.
* TheComicallySerious
* 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.
** [[WesternAnimation/AmethystPrincessOfGemworld Also not the first time Keith Ferguson has voiced someone like this.]]
*** Coincidentally, his [[Creator/KentaMiyake Japanese voice actor]] [[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy has dubbed a cartoon character like this as well]].
* 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.
* 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.
* 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.
** Which makes it odd that his GoofyPrintUnderwear is purple.
* GeneralFailure: When he lets his anger and/or ego get the better of him.
* GrievousHarmWithABody: Hater punches out Emperor Awesome with one of his own fist-headed minions.
* GutturalGrowler: His voice almost always has a growl to it, even when he's yelling.
* ItsAllAboutMe
* LargeHam: EvilIsHammy
* LaughablyEvil: His over the top nature, arrogance and childlike habits often push him into this.
* LetsGetDangerous: Passive fury is his default temperament, but this trope kicks in whenever he gets really peeved.
* MadeOfIron: 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.
* MeaningfulName: Pretty much hates everything, but especially hates Wander.
* TheMillstone: To himself.
* MindOverMatter: One of his many powers.
* MoralityPet: [[spoiler:Captain Tim]]
* NiceShoes: He wears ''sneakers''.
* 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.
* 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.
* PhraseCatcher: "Later, Hater!"
* PowerFloats: Sometimes during displays of power, he will actually levitate into the air.
* 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.
* ShockAndAwe: Can shoot green lightning bolts and create electromagnetic forcefields.
* ToThePain: All the better to provide sound bytes for his torture room mix tape.
* 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.]]


[[quoteright:258:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/commanderpeepersofficial_2720.jpg]]
!!Commander Peepers
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TomKenny

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. It rarely works, but Peepers is nothing if not devoted to his job.
----
Tropes:

* TheChewToy: He exists mainly to be Sylvia and Hater's punching bag.
* 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
* 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.
* FacelessEye: Along with the rest of Hater's {{mooks}}.
* AFatherToHisMen: PlayedWith. On one hand, he lets the Watchdogs hide behind him without objection 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".
* HypercompetentSidekick: At least he thinks so.
* {{Leitmotif}}[=/=]ThemeTune: "Commander Peep-ers!"
* MookLieutenant
* TheNapoleon: The platform shoes present in "The Gift 2" implies he would love to be as big and imposing as his boss.
* [[RedEyesTakeWarning Red Eye, Take Warning]]: [[SubvertedTrope Most of the time he's not competent enough for this to be in play]]. [[DoubleSubversion But if he gets serious]]...
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Will not let anyone else capture Wander and Sylvia and allows 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 get into even more trouble with Lord Hater.


!!Army of Watchdogs

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.
----
Tropes:

* AdorableEvilMinions
* BlindingCameraFlash: Being large eyes on small bodies, this is one of the best ways to neutralize them.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy[=/=]FlawExploitation: In "The Fugitives", they exploit Wander's urge to help others in order to capture him. [[spoiler: It worked, at first.]]
* {{Facepalm}}: They collectively do this simultaneously (following Peepers and along with Awesome's army) in "The Picnic."
* FacelessEye
* 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).
* InvisibleAnatomy: In "The Greatest" we see a few licking ice cream cones, without any visible tongues.
* {{Mooks}}
* [[PunchClockVillain Punch Clock Minions]]: Although their job is to capture Wander and Sylvia, the Watchdogs seldom attack them unless they're ordered to.

!!Westley
[[quoteright:131:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/westley_pre_redemption_4157.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' 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.
----
Tropes:

* FakingTheDead: He made it look like he got blown into space trying to prevent Wander and Sylvia from escaping Hater's ship.
* GenreSavvy: Westley knows enough to realize that if he hadn't faked his death, Hater would probably hunt him down second in priority to Wander for letting Wander and Sylvia escape.
* 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
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: He's stockier and smaller then the rest of the watchdogs.
* 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]]

[[folder:Other Characters]]

!!Emperor Awesome
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SamRiegel

The shark-headed, lipstick-wearing Emperor Aweosome 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 half-hearted rivalry with Lord Hater (who takes it much more seriously than Awesome does). Awesome has an army of soldiers with fists for heads.
----
Tropes:

* 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]].
* AnythingThatMoves: Hits on Sylvia and [[spoiler:a sandwich]] within the span of a single episode.
* AwesomenessIsVolatile: His parties are so over-the-top that they ''[[EarthShatteringKaboom destroy planets]]''.
** Especially when he turns this trope UpToEleven in, "The Party Animal,"
* CallingYourAttacks
* HandsomeLech: Those calves might be ready for market, but nobody's buying.
* {{Leitmotif}}: ''Let's Get Awesome''
* ObliviouslyEvil: He thinks he's the LifeOfTheParty, but to everyone else he's a planet-killing menace.
* PsychopathicManChild: Probably not as much as Lord Hater.
* SharkMan: Is a muscle flexing dude with a shark head.
* TotallyRadical: He talks like a FratBro SurferDude.
--> '''Emperor Awesome:''' Bro, do you even know how hard I slam?

!!Papa Doom
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson
----
Tropes:

* 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]].
* [[spoiler: JerkassFacade]]
* TheNapoleon: Even Wander's about twice his height.

!!Prince Cashmere
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/BillFagerbakke
----
Tropes:

* BadassCape: Lovingly crafted for him by his Nana Ba-ba.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Cashmere is noble and kind-hearted, but he won't hesitate to fight anyone who harms his people, tries to take their food-- or insults his cape.
* BoisterousBruiser
* ExtremeOmniGoat: He and the rest of the Baaaaa-hallans. They have everything but the kitchen sink on their feasting table.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* WarriorPrince

!!The Troll
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KeithFerguson
----
Tropes:

* AttentionWhore: "PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!"
* FatBastard
* {{Jerkass}}
* 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.

!!The Lords of Illumination
->'''Leader voiced by:''' John Hodgman
----
Tropes:

* RainbowMotif: They flash all different colors!
* SecretTestOfCharacter: They put Wander and Sylvia through one in "The Box."
* SufficientlyAdvancedAliens

!!Beeza
[[quoteright:252:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beeza_6806.png]]

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

* 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."
* 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

!!Buster

!!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.
----
Tropes:

* AmbiguouslyHuman
* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: To Princess Demurra.
* 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.
* TheHero: In the episode of the same name, which is subverted, he's actually the WrongGenreSavvy villain.
* 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
* 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 (who he blames for something he didn't even do).
* 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).

!!Princess Demurra
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JenniferHale

!!Drakor, The Dragon King
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/FredTatasciore
----
Tropes:

* BigBad: [[spoiler:Subverted, Brad is the actual villain.]]

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

!!Harvax and Stok
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JeffBennett (Harvax) and Creator/CharlieAdler (Stok)

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.
----
Tropes:

* BigCreepyCrawlies: Harvax, a giant fly.
* {{Gonk}}: With or without the fake proboscis, Harvax is ''butt-ugly''.
* IShallTauntYou: But if that stops working, they ''will'' get serious.
* {{Jerkass}}: Both of them.
* {{Phlegmings}}: Hey Stok, you need a towel?
* TheRival: To Sylvia.
* {{Troll}}: Again, to Sylvia, with simple "tick-tock tick-tocks."

!!Trudie Traveller
->'''Voiced by:''' EdieMcClurg

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. [[spoiler:It turns out she cheats -- with clone/doppleganger/android/hologram duplicates of herself.]]
----
Tropes:

* 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.
** AffablyEvil: While she is by no means evil, she did enjoy winding Wander up for the sake of competition. A pretty CoolOldLady otherwise.
* MakingASpectacleOfYourself: Wear starshaped glasses.
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens
* 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.

!!Janet
->'''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.
----
Tropes:

* ClingyJealousGirl: Towards Sylvia.
* GeniusLoci
* PossessiveParadise: She does not let Wander go without a fight.
* [[spoiler:StalkerShrine]]
* StealthPun: Possibly unintentional, but [[spoiler:her new love ''literally'' revolves around her.]]

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/7e3c2a53ef1f76f1c4e33ea9797c8275.JPG]]
!!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.
----
Tropes:

* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: She has purple fur.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: She starts out as one. 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".
* BewareTheCuteOnes: She uses her cuteness to her advantage.
* BountyHunter: Her actual profession.
* CatsAreMean: Once we learn who and what she really is.
* CuteIsEvil
* CuteKitten: She plays this trope for all it's worth.
* CuteMute: She doesn't say anything for the first half of her episode.
* ElmuhFuddSyndwome: She speaks this way, much to Lord Hater's amusement.
* EnfantTerrible: A bounty hunter's gotta be dangerous, even if she is just a child.
* 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.
* WalkingSpoiler
* 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.

!!The Insurgent Generals
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SteveBlum (General Outrage), Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson (Clipper), Creator/JeffBennett (Brainz), and Creator/DwightSchultz (Wild Card)
----
Tropes:

* 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-sequitors and silly random things.
* EverythingIsAnInstrument: Wild Card used a live chicken as a trumpet. Yes, it makes perfect sense.
* [[spoiler:FakeUltimateHero: They come off as tough, {{Badass}} heroes, but it turns out their plan was just an inconvenience to Lord Hater. 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.

!!Rongroffle, the Huntress

!!Killbot 86

!!The Potted Plant

!!Evil Sandwich

!!Ryder
->'''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.
----
Tropes:

* 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
* MeaningfulName: Hes called Ryder because he used to...ride...her. (Sylvia)

!!Lord Dominator
->'''Voiced by:''' Fred Tatasciore
----
Tropes:

* [[spoiler: AlwaysSomeoneBetter[=/=]EvilerThanThou[=/=]TheRival: [=McCracken=] has described him as a better hater than Lord Hater.]]
* [[spoiler: BiggerBad]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: Makes an appearance in TheStinger of the season 1 finale "The Rider".
* WalkingSpoiler
