Voiced by: Scott McCord

A blue, male rabbit and the twin brother of Yin. He mostly uses the Martial Arts side of Woo Foo, but he can also use the Mystic side of Woo Foo. Yang is a cuckoo, lucky, courageous character, and has a liking for clowns. Despite not usually showing it, he really cares about his sister and Master Yo's well-being. He enjoys fighting, and likes hitting stuff.

Voiced by: Stephanie Morgenstern

A pink, female rabbit and the twin sister of Yang. She mostly uses with the Mystic side of Woo Foo, but she is also skilled in Martial Arts. Yin is often described as intelligent, cute, girly, and sassy, but she is often quite stubborn and shows signs of being a "neat freak". Yin generally has a good sense of right and wrong, and will often do the right thing.

    Master Yo
Voiced by: Martin Roach

Teacher of Yin and Yang, Yo is a grumpy old panda whose age is unknown though implied to be a centenarian (as he'd missed his 117th high school reunion). Yo has great sage wisdom and is a master in the Woo Foo arts. Master Yo mentors Yin and Yang in the Woo Foo way to save the world, but it wasn't his choice; the spirits of past Woo Foo warriors stopped him from watching a movie called "Who Stole the Cookie" until he decided to do it. He's able to use both might and magic and has moves that Yin and Yang have no clue about.
  • Action Dad: He turns out to be the biological father of Yin and Yang.
  • Afro Asskicker: Back in his younger days, he dawned skills as broad as his afro.

  • Badass Grandpa
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: He's a master of Woo Foo, but is now perfectly content to lounge around and do nothing.

  • Last of His Kind: He's the last panda on earth.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He's Yin and Yang's missing dad.
  • Panda-ing to the Audience
  • Papa Wolf: Though he regularly lets Yin and Yang handle their own battles, he's more than willing to stand up for and rush to their aid if he sees they're in need of help. He especially applies to this after the reveal that he's they're biological father.
  • Parental Substitute: Has practically raised two children due to their absence of their actual parents. Though it later turns out that he was their father all along and had his memory wiped of them ever being born.
  • Purple Eyes

    Roger Jr.
Voiced by: Damon Papadopoulos

Logically the son of Yin and Yang's part-time enemy, Roger the Skelewog. At first, Roger Jr. was a bully to Yin and Yang, having mock fights with Yang and teasing him and Yin, but, during "Woofoogeddon", it was revealed he longed to be Yang's best friend. Roger Jr., being a monster, has displayed super strength, such as when he easily took out a whole group of the Night Master's soldiers just by running by them with his arms. He is also a member of the Woo Foo army Yin and Yang gathered together.
  • Breath Weapon: He has the ability to breathe fire.
  • Friendly Enemy: At first, Roger Jr. was a bully to Yin and Yang, having mock fights with Yang and teasing him and Yin, but during Woofoogeddon/Who Knows What Evil Lurks, it was revealed he longed to be Yang's best friend.

Voiced by: Dwayne Hill

A magical talking tree stump, Dave is a low-life and is considered pathetic by his friends. Many times, Dave is often caught in the crossfire of battles or hurt in some way by friend and/or foe. He is also whiny, talks nonstop about his family of trees, and is never noticed. As discovered in Stuck, Dave has the ability to communicate with and manipulate non sentient plants. This apparently surpasses that of the other characters. He is now a member of Yin and Yang's Woo Foo army.

Voiced by: Dwayne Hill

A nerdy chicken who appears to be scared of any threats and has a huge crush on Yin but because she never returned any of his feelings, Coop joined the Night Master in exchange for the promise to have Yin when the world was taken over. He is a minor villain and he is seen with some of the other villains in the Yin, Yang, Yo intro in season 1. Coop gave the impression of incompetence, but in reality, he had powers and abilities rivaling Yin and Yang's; in the end, Coop couldn't bring himself to go through with the Night Master's plans and held him in place so Yin and Yang could destroy him. Eventually, he returns and ends up overwhelmed by the power of the Night Master, temporarily becoming evil before snapping to normal and going off to train and gain control. Upon doing so, he joins the Woo Foo army.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Towards Yin due to his obsessive behavior and general nature that Yin finds more annoying than endearing, no matter how hard the poor guy tries to impress her.

Voiced by: Bill Engvall

A Redneckistanian practicing Woo Foo, while being disliked by his teachers, Yin and Yang, as a stupid, smelly hick; however, when he finally gets the time to clean himself up, he reveals himself to be a smart, well-groomed young man. After defeating the Chung Pow Kitties, Jobeaux reveals his knowledge of Yin and Yang's disrespect and returns home to marry and live in a castle of diamond-encrusted grits (which Yin was fantasizing about before they met). He has a pet armadillo named Fuzzy Thunder that hides in his mouth, giving him a hick accent.
  • Deep South: He lives in Redneckistan.

  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Takes a very active role in his kingdom and seems to be the most active method of defense.
  • Warrior Prince: Yes, it's hard to believe, but he's a prince.

  • Real Men Wear Pink: His entire outfit (sans the belt, glasses, and shoes) is pink.

  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has purple hair.


    The Night Master
Voiced by: David Hemblen

Billed as a "Dark Overlord in an Evil Class All By Himself", the Night Master is a very powerful and dangerous foe who was responsible for the near extinction of Woo Foo by eliminating all of the Woo Foo knights except for Master Yo. The Sensei managed to turn Night Master's army to stone and sent him into hiding for a hundred years until he tricked Yin and Yang into using Woo Foo in order to free his army. The Night Master appears to be a demonic sorcerer bat (as such, he hates light) of some description and has a liking for Gothic, ostentatious outfits.
  • As Long as There Is Evil: It's possible for about anyone to take up the Nightmaster's reign as long as they prove how terrible of a person they are; so, even if the current one dies, there can always be a replacement.
  • Bat out of Hell: Resembles an incredibly tall and thin bat wearing a cloak.
  • Big Bad: Season 1.
  • The Comically Serious: It's his short temper and serious nature towards most things that make his interactions with more zany characters all the more comical.
  • Dark Is Edgy: Easily one of the more deliberately dark villains of the series with little added to his character to make him seem more silly and pitiful.
  • Dark Is Evil
  • Evil Laugh
  • Evil Overlord
  • Evil Sorcerer
  • Expy: Aku of Samurai Jack.
  • The Heavy: The one who started the main source of conflict with Woo Foo being close to nonexistent int the current society and not at all taken seriously by others.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Despite some occasionally funny scenes regarding his fashion choices, he's clearly the main cause behind a mass genocide and he's taken in all seriousness whenever he invests in his plans
  • Lean and Mean
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast
  • Obviously Evil: He's a giant bat who wears a dark cloak and speaks in an eerie voice; also, he prefers looming in the shadows at all times.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: The marks around his eyes are red and his cloak is black with red underneath.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Sometimes they are most noticeable when he's in the dark.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: He's pretty smart himself, it's just that his minions tend to be much less intelligent than him and screw up his plans.
  • The Trickster: Enough to get Yin and Yang to accidentally free him.
  • Weakened by the Light: His main weakness is sunlight which is why he always looms in the darkness to avoid being burned to death.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: A genocidal, power hungry destroyer who now wants to kill two children and their elderly panda mentor and maybe take over the world in the process.

    Carl, the Evil Cockroach Wizard
Voiced by: Jamie Watson

Carl, the Evil Cockroach Wizard (who tends to shout out his name as much as possible and always wants to be called Carl the Evil Cockroach Wizard), continuously schemes to defeat Yin, Yang, Master Yo and the power of the Woo Foo with his insecure genius. He also lives with his overbearing mother Edna, who is a dragon (it makes no sense as to how they are all related). Carl is always trying to find a way to impress his mother and out-do his brother Herman. Despite his desire to win his mother's love, Carl is resentful and has talked back (usually under his breath), made her cry, and even put a spell on her.

Voiced by: Jonathan Wilson

A mighty Gryphon who is bent on destroying Woo Foo. As revealed in "Welcome To The Dark Tomorrow", he is in fact the first and original Night Master. After his demise (of unknown cause), other beings of darkness took on the mantle of evil he left behind including an unknown snake lady and the bat-creature Yin and Yang faced in season 1. His deceased minions posed as the ghosts of the Woo Foo Elders to manipulate Yang into collecting the items of power needed to revive him. Tricking Yang into throwing the items into the Night Master's fireplace at the stroke of midnight, Eradicus was instantly resurrected.

    Ella Mental
Voiced by: Linda Ballantyne

A female villain who can read minds. She is the smartest one of Eradicus's minions, though her blunt corrections often get her zapped by Eradicus. Eradicus also forced her into tuba lessons, and can play polka music.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • The Dark Chick
  • Deadpan Snarker: Normally in response to the other's incompetence.
  • Evil Genius: The smartest out of the group and is far more likely to plan ahead and approach situations with common sense before jumping head of herself.

  • Fingerless Hands
  • Flight: Is one of few characters shown to have this ability.
  • Magic Staff: Regularly holds a long staff with a glowing red orb at the top.
  • Mini Dress Of Power
  • Psychic Powers: Is able to mind read and levitate items and harbors a great deal of power from being within her own mind as shown in Mind Games when she nearly overpowers Yin.
  • Proud Beauty: Holds a lot of satisfaction in her attractiveness and doesn't take it well when Yin thinks she's not that hot.
  • Punny Name: Sounds like "elemental".

    Brother Herman
Voiced by: David Berni

Carl's black-hearted, sadistic, selfish and evil ant brother, Herman, is a tyrannical ant warrior who rules his kingdom with an iron fist, a diabolical mind, and impeccable table manners. He is also quite the mama's boy. He attempted to take over the world until Master Yo stopped him.

Voiced by: Tony Daniels

Ultimoose is the ultimate Night Master lackey: tough as nails, a master at Moose fighting, and really, really dumb, despite his shortness and strong antlers. He seems to offer work under the Night Master but is merely a dim-witted pawn.

Voiced by: Scott McCord

Yuck, a turquoise-green rabbit with terrible hygiene, is an entity formed from Yin's obsession with control and Yang's aggression. As a disgusting, mutant rabbit, Yuck wants more than anything in the world to be the greatest, most powerful Woo Foo Knight of all time.
  • All Your Powers Combined: He has all of Yin and Yang's abilities
  • Arrogant Woo Foo Guy
  • Ax-Crazy: Aggressive as he is, Yuck seems to derive sadistic fun from generally hurting people and many of his deranged smiles imply he isn't entirely right in the head.
  • Badass: Despite his arrogance and cruelty, he does prove to be one of the most formidable foes in the series, able to outsmart and near victory a number of times by himself. Not to mention that he's possibly the most power Woo Foo knight in existence, nearly killing Master Yo the first time in a mostly one sided fight.
  • Big Eater: Eats an entire pie and a pizza in his debut episode in just a few bites, normally making a mess along the way.

  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Also in "Upstanding Yuck" he becomes a good guy by having a group of hooded figures beat goodness into him. Yin and Yang don't trust him of course and follow him around, ambushing him whenever his words sound like a threat. They're proven wrong in the end, realizing too late that Yuck was good all along and that their actions have only turned him back to his old ways.
  • Hermaphrodite: Though he is addressed using male pronouns, "Yin Yang Yuck!" shows him coming out of a bathroom labeled with a question mark. Then "Personality Problem" reveals that he actually does have a male and female aspect of his personality.
  • Hiccup Hijinks: The main thing that defeats him at the end of "Imperfect Fooplicates". Despite his incredibly increased power after inhaling a number of Fooplicate flakes, this also gave him a bad case of hiccups that make him lose control of his abilities and ultimately beat himself up.
  • Jerkass
  • Killer Rabbit: An almost literal version.
  • Large Ham: Not quite as much as other examples as he seems to be able to keep his speaking patterns more casual, but he can certainly bring up the ham whenever he makes an entrance.
    Yeah baby, I'm back!
  • Magic Knight
  • Manipulative Bastard: Has proved himself capable of plotting multiple people to his schemes.
  • Master of Disguise: Unlike other villains, he wears some pretty convincing disguises to the point his reveal can be the biggest shocker, normally involving robot suits or someone else's body he'll posses.
  • Never My Fault: Rarely ever takes the blame for his failures, especially in "Personality Problem" where he blames Yin and Yang for being on top of their game for him being defeated and towards the end of the episode where he claims his girl half's idea is the reason he lost.
  • The Pig Pen
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse
  • Playing with Fire: Is capable of doing the Fists of Fire when he's first made, just to prove how powerful he already was.
  • Sickly Green Glow: His magic is this color.
  • Slasher Smile
  • Smug Super: Always feels the need to point out how he's a Level 5 Woo Foo Warrior and he's still hungry for more power.
  • Third-Person Person: On occasion, he'll end a threat with his own name, such as shouting phrases like "So swears Yuck!" or "You'll be no match for Yuck!".
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice starts off as more nasally in the first season and sounds more raspy in "Voyage to The Center of Yo". In the second season, he has his official voice which is deeper and slightly raspy.

Deeply sexist and obsessed with female rights, she is determined to free Yin from studying Woo Foo and take in as her disciple.

  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": He has a stylized "Z" around his chest area.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He wants to be one.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: A platonic version. It has been revealed in "Dummy Up" that Zarnot still desires Yang's affection and attention, and seems to grow insane jealousies towards any other toy that Yang might be playing with (such as Yochop). Whenver Yang ignores him, he seems to want Yang's attention more, and is willing to go far lengths to attain it.
  • Dark Is Evil: His main color scheme are dark blue and black.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He uses the same villain cliches.
  • Humongous Mecha: Subverted for most of the time, but sometimes displays the ability to grow huge
