- Genius Bruiser: Is probably about as smart as he is strong, and can actually write pretty well.
- Hero Killer: Napoleon had a personal hand in the deaths of Mezzo's Black Guard (Though they weren't exactly heroes at the time), beat the crap out of MGMT, killed Mira, managed to seriously injure Lake, and is one of the very few beings to more or less escape the full wrath of the J-Team unharmed.
- The Juggernaut: Nothing seems to truly stop him for very long short of Scolipede's giant Hydreigon.
- Manipulative Bastard: Manipulated Solana into doing evil in the first place, and then manipulated the Midori Mons into believing that she betrayed them after killing Rose and Eridan.

- Social Darwinist: In his view, the strong have the right to rule over and cull the weak.

- Would Hurt a Child: Had no problems stringing up children on crosses.
A Serperior general under Scolemis who was in charge of the Johto invasion during the AU.

- Psychic Powers: So powerful that without using the blockers Tagg's group would've been mentally crippled upon entering his chamber.
- Talking the Monster to Death: Like in the games, Tagg and the Vault Dweller point out that the sterility of the Super Mutants means that his plot is ultimately doomed to failure, causing him to commit suicide by blowing up the Cathedral.
- Voice of the Legion: Has a synthetic voice, his own voice, and the voices of humans and mons he has assimilated.

The Lieutenant/Lou Tenant
The Master's second in command, and far more level-headed.

- Cyborg: Is a cybernetic Conkeldurr.
- The Dragon: To the Master.
- Dragon Their Feet: Tagg's group ends up fighting him after they stop the Master.
- Electronic Eyes: Has a cybernetic eye that works like a Silph Scope + Foresight, allowing him to harm Ghost types, as Eir found out unfortunately.
- Evil Brit: Sounds like Tony Jay to be exact.
- Family-Unfriendly Death: Emperor Archeops uses an Earthquake on his head, and he starts liquefying and imploding before after Tagg's failure to throw him aside with Aura chains Ana telekinetically hurls him into one of the forcefields, vaporizing him.
- Faux Affably Evil: Unlike the Master, he's a bit of a sadist and rather condescending while being technically polite.
- Genius Bruiser: Both very strong and very smart.

The Head Priest of the Children of the Cathedral.
- Karmic Death: Xatu leaves him to get blown up in the Cathedral after defeating his men and giving a "Reason You Suck" Speech to him.
- Sinister Minister: Like his game counterpart he's a sham priest who preys on others.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Thinks he's a lot more powerful than he really is. Tagg's Xatu points out to him that to his teammates, some of whom having actually fought godlike beings, he's little more than a footnote.
The Ghost Lord
For those who went on to join The Illusion Project or Team Neo-Galactic, please look at their respective folders.
- Arch-Enemy: Cipher in general is this to Tagg, and after Orre the entire J-Team.
- Big Bad: Of the Orre arc, and in some ways the entire RP.
- Bigger Bad: 'M was originally a Cipher experiment.
- Compensating for Something: Tracer accuses them of this due to the large amount of firearms they carry.
- Darker and Edgier: Unlike the game version of Cipher whose darkness was mostly hinted at, WAAPT's interpretation of Cipher carries around firearms and murders people onscreen.
- Interservice Rivalry: The various branches of Cipher do not get along, to the point that their effectiveness was hampered though branches letting the J-Team destroy others.
- Just a Kid: Subverted. Probably due to their defeat at the hands of Micheal, Cipher for the most part actually takes the J-Team seriously as a threat.
- Knight of Cerebus: Every time they show up IRP, bad things follow soon after and the RP takes on a darker tone.
- The Man Behind the Man: They helped Ghetsis shadow Kyurem, and had remnants of the Pokémon Pinchers, Go-Rock Squad, and Team Dim Sun on their payroll.

Cipher Grandmaster Ardos
Cipher's Grandmaster following the capture of Greevil and Eldes.
- Bad Boss: Implied, since the Orre Admins did not want him getting directly involved in Orre's events, and of course in his backstory he was going to blow up Citadark Isle and everyone on it after Greevil lost to Micheal. It's also worth noting that following the fall of the Orre branch most if not all of the Cipher personnel that escaped the J-Team didn't try coming back to him.
- Bigger Bad: Despite being responsible for most of the proto-J-Team's early foes, and the man everyone in Cipher answers to, he has yet to be directly opposed by the J-Team, with only Gamer, Silent, and Ever having met him directly, and only the latter getting a chance to battle him, however briefly.
- Dragon Ascendant: Took the job of Cipher Grandmaster after Greevil was jailed.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has blue hair.
Cipher Admin Tokarev
The head of Cipher's Operations Division, Cipher's footsoldiers, and one of Tagg's most hated enemies.
- An Arm and a Leg: Tagg cuts off Tokarev's right leg and hand after slashing out his eye.
- Arch-Enemy: To Tagg in particular.
- Badass Normal: Is Tagg's superior in a straight fight, managing to beat him into near unconsciousness during their final confrontation, and it's likely that had he not threatened the lives of his loved ones he would've successfully killed him.
- Captain Ersatz: Of Vladimir Makarov, according to Word of God.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Was the Cipher Peon from Tagg's backstory.
- Combat Pragmatist: Has his men arm themselves with firearms as well as mons, and dropped flashbangs on the J-Team rather than face them with a numerical disadvantage.
- Eye Scream: Loses an eye thanks to Tagg's Aura blade in a fit of rage.
- Feathered Fiend: His Fearow Lev.
- Frontline General: More Admin, but though he tends to hang back for the most part, Tokarev has no issue going on field missions with his men.
- Hero Killer: As mentioned above he and Verax managed to come closest to killing Tagg out of anyone in the RP.
- Hired Guns: After leaving the millitary, he spent several years as a mercenary.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: While Tagg had plans on killing him anyway, the Mind Rape mentioned below and threatening his friends and girlfriend led to his defeat.
- Honor Before Reason: Decides to just leave with the Cipher scientist instead of gunning down the J-Team while they're stunned, though he could've just thought going through with it would be a waste of time.
- Knight of Cerebus: Things got a lot darker once he showed up to collect the last Cipher scientist in Holon.
- Mind Rape: Does this to Tagg by having their second meeting take place in the very same spot where they first met, and having a mind-controlled Ever and Shadowed Crewe try to kill him.
- Only in It for the Money: He's only loyal to Cipher for as long as he's being paid, and cares little about Shadowing mons.
- Pistol-Whipping: His favorite method for dealing with defiant individuals is to smack them with the butt of his pistol.
- Poirot Speak: Is hinted to be from a Russian analogue region in particular due to his language patterns.
- Professional Killer: Served as an assassin on several occasions before joining Cipher.

- Would Hit a Girl: Tokarev pistol whipped Shadow!Crewe about twice for insubordination.
- Would Hurt a Child: Tried to kill Tagg for being a witness when he was 13.
Alexiel's sister which suddenly appeared at Cipher and started to work for him.

Cipher Commander Verax Lakirid
A Cipher Operative who works under Tokarev.
- The Ace: What he is considered, however due to him being a villain, and his line of work being killing people, it's mostly implied as the heroes prevent any sort of demonstration.
- Empowered Badass Normal: Near the end of Orre he acquires the YCMA, which gives its wearer the powers of the entire Auric Quartet.
- Heel-Face Turn: Has one at the end of the Orre arc.
- The Mole: Becomes one for Tagg in the Illusion Project.
- Reformed, but Rejected: A lot of the J-Team only tolerates his presence due to him nearly killing several of them. Herbert for instance absolutely despises him and beat him down unprovoked, and his own purified Shadows stick with him mainly due to the Vow. Tagg is surprisingly one of the only J-Team members who doesn't despise him, though he doesn't trust him fully.
- Sadist: Though he doesn't actually like it, he's just mostly incapable of feeling joy unless it's through others suffering.
- Separated at Birth: Turns out to be Jacob's twin.
- Signature Mon: Balthazar, his Shadow Hydreigon.

Battle's Heatran. She is currently stuck in PMD-A thanks to Grace.

- Arch-Enemy: To Skye and Diane. Kyrie sees Paula as this, but Paula doesn't reciprocate. At first anyway.
- All of the Other Reindeer: Is treated like a monster by the mons in Treasure Town due to being seen as a feral. (Being a Crawdaunt doesn't help matters either.)
- Baleful Polymorph: Gets teleported to a desert area of PMD-A by Grace after a failed attempt to have her Claydol Mind Rape Ryklys, where she becomes a Corphish.
- Cool Shades: Gets a star shaped visor in the make of Simon after catching and Shadowing the Heatran of Mt. Battle and becoming an Admin as a result. Diane ends up breaking them with a punch to the face. She somehow gets the visor back after making a deal with the Unown to return to the AU.

- Tunnel King: Was a Tunnel Queen before becoming a Cipher member.

- Doppelgänger Attack: Uses her Ditto to pull these off.
- :Heroic Sacrifice: Sacrifices herself to save Iulianus. Sadly, it's in vain.

- Evil Old Folks: He's an evil old Cipher scientist.
- For Science!: He cares little for the suffering his research entails, just so long as his experiments are fruitful.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: His moral compass was sent askew a long time ago, and his gaunt, pale features put his reflective glasses in stark contrast.
- Karma Houdini: Despite being the mastermind behind Regina's Shadowfication, and doing experiments on countless other victims, he escapes not only with all of his research intact, but also untraceable.
- Kicked Upstairs: Has a Commander rank and his own lab mainly so that his abrasive nature doesn't lead to conflict with other scientists.

- Evil vs. Evil: Are rivals with Team Neo-Galactic.

- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Echo herself is, though her underlings range from this to mere sadists.

- Genre Savvy: She keeps her organization low-key, avoids referring to it as a "team", insists on a noticeable-but-not-blatant dress code, and acknowledges how much of a threat the J-Team is despite it being mostly comprised of teenagers.

- Noble Demon: Tries to run things in her organization as nobly as possible. Torture for instance is not allowed.

- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Believes her actions are the only way to create world peace.

- An Ice Person: Is an Ice monotyper.

- Strange Syntax Speaker: Never uses first-person pronouns, except when she loses her temper.

- Norse by Norsewest: Her maternal grandmother was from the Pokeworld equivalent of Norway.

- Politically Incorrect Villain: Calls Joseph a faggot on two different occasions, though she might just be saying it to get a rise out of Pi/Munn.
- Psychopathic Manchild: Well, womanchild, and it's zig-zagged somewhat. Kyrie can switch from childlike insults to a Cluster F-Bomb at the drop of a hat.
- Sadist: Somewhat different from other Cipher members such as Paula, however: while Paula is terribly fond of emotional suffering, Kyrie would much rather bash people's heads in.
- Softspoken Sadist: Her Froslass, Bathory.
- Shout-Out: All of her mons are named after things.. We have Emilie the Kricketune, Jimi the Bouffalant, and Ophelia the Lilligant. Her Froslass, Bathory, is named after a famous murderess, Elizabeth Bathory. And more recently, we have Clara the Zangoose (Clara Schumann) Camille the Mismagius (Camille Saint-Saens) and Joanna the Flygon (Joanna Newsom).

- Confirmed to be the case during a conversation with Shaka. As his "father" was sterile.

- Tall, Dark and Snarky: Certainly doesn't suffer from a shortage of sarcastic opinions (even if he's blond rather than dark haired).

- Manipulative Bastard: Hardly a master at his game, but still has enough skill at manipulating emotions to keep Shadow!Crewe under his thumb.

- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Acts extremely silly, but is actually quite competent.
- Crazy-Prepared: He knew exactly what to do to keep Lyuri under his command and no matter what they tried, Crow, Duke, Herbert and Lyuri could do nothing to stop him from escaping, he succesfully knocked out Ghostus to prevent a Mean Look and bluffed about a hostage and once that plan failed against Herbert, who blocked all exits through Gamma, he simply teleported out with a Gallade's help.
- Double Agent: Serves as one for Titan in the Illusion Project.
- Faux Affably Evil: He's silly and keeps a very casual attitude, which only makes his sadism even more noticeable.
