Martin William Kratt

Jimmy Z (James)

Voiced by: Jonathan Malen
  • Adorkable
  • Big Eater
  • Butt-Monkey: Especially in "Elephant in the Room". He's also punched himself in the face (twice in a row!), dropped a football on himself, gotten tangled up in a hammock, banged his thumb with a hammer twice, need I say more?
  • Freudian Trio: With Aviva and Koki.
  • Hates Being Touched: Oddly, only with Aviva. Other characters have even made full body contact that he didn't look uncomfortable with, but he shrinks away from Aviva (except in "Masked Bandits" when she was behind him with her hands on his shoulders, and he had his hands on hers).
  • Heavy Sleeper: The biggest example.
  • Non-Action Guy: The only member of the team who's never used a Creature Power Suit.
  • Only Knownby Their Nickname: His real name is James [insert last name here], but is universally referred to by his nickname "Jimmy Z".
  • Only One Name: Subverted, at least he gets a letter. Poor Dabio and Koki don't have even that much.
  • The Good Captain: Despite being something of a slacker, he is highly competent at his job.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pizza
  • Youthful Freckles

Donita Donata

Voiced by: Eva Almos
  • Alliterative Name
  • Attention Whore
  • Bad Boss
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Even Evil Has Standards: In "Polar Bears Don't Dance", she was genuinely shocked and appalled upon discovering Zach had stolen the Arctic Pearl.
  • The Fashionista
  • Head Pet: An awful lot of Donita's fashion ideas seem to consist of sticking a paralyzed animal on somebody's head.
  • Idiosyncrazy
  • Karma Houdini: Minor subverted one and a major Played Straight example:
    • For the minor subverted one, it's when her plans are foiled, she is often humiliated and is left to flee in defeat.
    • The major straight example, the methods she goes to obtain animals are outright poaching, but she never gets punished by the law for that.
  • The Paralyzer: Her weapon of choice is a "pose beam", a device which renders its target completely immobile and thus subject to Donita's whim. Uses it to incorporate animals into her fashions.
  • Pink Is Feminine: The only female villain (until "Spirit Bear") travels in a pink plane or pink yacht.

Gaston Gourmand
  • Alliterative Name
  • Behind a Stick: "Platypus Café" and "Honey Seekers".
  • Big Eater: Is implied to be this.
  • Black Comedy Cannibalism: In "Platypus Café" (his debut episode). While not necessarily played for laughs, he was planning on incorporating both Chris and Martin into his dish, but only managed to capture the former. He constantly refers to Chris as a "side dish" throughout the episode, and even sniffs him in order to decide which seasoning would go best with him. (While Chris suggested this in order to take advantage of and later trick Gourmand, the latter doesn't even hesitate to do so).
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef
  • Doing It for the Art: An in-universe example concerning why he cooks endangered animals.
  • Evil Is Hammy: All the time.
  • Evil Tastes Good
  • Exotic Entree: His specialty as a chef.
  • Fat Bastard
  • Fat Idiot
  • Idiosyncrazy
  • Improbable Weapon User: Gourmand has dueled the Kratts with a variety of kitchen utensils, from a spatula to an electric eggbeater.
  • Laughably Evil
  • Karma Houdini: Minor subverted one and a major Played Straight example:
    • For the minor subverted one, it's when his plans are foiled, he is often humiliated and is left to flee in defeat.
    • In another subverted example, he lost his chef license in the past for his illegal cooking of endangered animals (not like that stopped him).
    • The major straight example, the methods he goes to obtain animals are outright poaching, but he never gets punished by the law for that.
  • Transforming Vehicle: His truck and boat unfold into a curtained-deck restaurant and kitchenette.

Paisley Paver

Voiced by: Julie Lemieux


Voiced by: Cory Doran
  • Ambiguously Brown: It is unclear what ethnicity he is supposed to be.
  • Crooked Contractor: He loves paving things over, and doesn't hesitate to attack the Kratts on Paisley's orders.
  • Evil Minions: Paisley Paver's minion. He's actually quite more competent than Dabio and the Zachbots.
  • Mr Fix It: Rex is a construction worker and dresses the part.
  • Only One Name: Along with Koki and Dabio, he doesn't have a last name.
  • Pragmatic Villain: He points out that Paisley's Mega-Storage facility probably won't have many customers, but goes along with her plan anyway because he likes laying pavement so much.

Zachary "Zach" Varmitech
