[[caption-width-right:300:When your fur is bright green, you've already gone where no ordinary rabbit would dare.]]

A comic book series created by Creator/LarryHama, with help from Michael Golden and Neal Adams, about the titular [[AmazingTechnicolorWildlife green]] [[PettingZooPeople humanoid]] hare who fights to protect [[AnotherDimension his Universe]] from the scourge of the evil Toad Empire. Bucky is assisted by the [[BadassCrew crew of his ship]], the [[TheDreaded Righteous Indignation]], which is joined by a human ChildProdigy named Willy [=DuWitt=], who entered his universe through a PortalDoor that he accidentally helped create via [[NegativeSpaceWedgie simultaneous Photon Accelerator malfunction]], and [[TrappedInAnotherWorld is trapped until the event can be recreated]].

The comic series was adapted into a short-lived [[AnimatedAdaptation animated television series]] and two video games.[[note]]An NES game, along with an arcade game.[[/note]] Thanks to PragmaticAdaptation, Willy [=DuWitt=] can go freely back and forth between Earth and the other universe - [[AdaptationNameChange renamed the "Aniverse"]] - at will in the cartoon.

It should not be confused with ''VideoGame/JazzJackrabbit'' or ''VideoGame/StarFox''.
----
!!Bucky O'Hare and the Trope Wars:

* ActionFigureFileCard: The toys had them.
* ActionGirl: Jenny and, to a lesser extent if only due to lack of screen time, Mimi [=LaFloo=].
* ActionHoggingOpening: The series, of course.
* {{Adorkable}}: Willy and Felicia.
* ArchEnemy: The Toad Air Marshal sees himself as Bucky's, though really Bucky and Toadborg are a closer fit.
* AdaptationDistillation: First a comic book, then the cartoon, then one video game, and finally a second one meant to end the series.
* AIIsACrapshoot: The main villain, Komplex, is a sentient computer program that the toads designed to run their planet. Naturally it turned evil, brainwashed them, and sent them on the warpath. All for no readily apparent reason other than "AI is evil." Even the benevolent android Blinky is reprogrammed by Toadborg in one episode to sabotage the ship, but Bucky and the gang keep him on anyway. Blinky's central programming fought back against Toadborg's control and actually managed to break free.
* AllThereInTheManual: The name of Bucky's [[TheMentor mysterious mentor]], Damaron Jabok, is given in a promotional booklet for an abandoned second season and further toyline.
* AllThereInTheScript: The names of several characters and things, particularly:
** Jeff and Mark (the other two bullies with Doug)
** Bob (the gray hare in "Home, Swampy, Home")
** Digger the mole's surname, [=McSquint=].
** Willy's mother's first name, "Sunshine."
** The ''Iron Vulture''[[note]][[WesternAnimation/TaleSpin No]] [[NamesTheSame relation]][[/note]] (the Corsair Canards' pirate ship)
** Dr. Wartimer and Dr. Croakley (the other two toad scientists who created Komplex)
* AllWomenAreLustful: Both Jenny and Mimi [=LaFloo=] are ''very'' direct about their affections.
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Bucky has green fur.
* AmazonBrigade: The [[FunctionalMagic Articifers]].
* ArtificialLimbs: Kamikaze Kamo's lower arms are both cybernetic.
* AwesomeButImpractical: The toy version of the Toad Croaker. While in the show, games, and comic it was presented as more or less a one man recon vehicle, the toy was altered slightly to look like a left shoe, complete with treads on its bottom. The reason was so that kids would use it to smash it down onto Toad Trooper action figures, "stepping" on them[[note]]The name is a reference to the franchise's BattleCry "Let's croak (us some) toads!"[[/note]]... Needless to say the toads' own Double Bubble didn't come anywhere close to this level of awesome.
* AwesomeMcCoolName: Many characters had these but Rumble Bee stands out.
* BadassBoast: This is BRUISER, the [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Betelgeusian Berserker Baboon]] speaking! I'm unstoppable, unbeatable, and uncontrollable!
* BadassCrew: The crews of the ''Righteous Indignation'' and ''Indefatigable''. To wit:
** Bucky is an adept tactician and planner, as well as a highly skilled tumbler and acrobat.
** Jenny uses her (secret[[note]]Except to Willy.[[/note]]) psychic abilities to devastating effect, and is an excellent pilot and perfectly capable personal combatant.
** Deadeye is a lethal marksman with any gun (hence his name).
** Willy, in spite of being a young child without military training, still fights alongside the crew of the ''Righteous''. He is skilled enough with a frisbee to hit a thrown knife in flight.
** Blinky has shown excellent skills in infiltration and cyberwarfare.
** Bruiser is Bruiser. He caused the toads to evacuate an entire planet by making a BadassBoast on TV. ''Twice''.
* BadassTeacher: Jenny to Felicia.
* BatmanGambit: [[GenreSavvy Toadborg]] uses one on Jenny in ''"The Artificers of Alderberan"'': he kidnaps Felicia - [[StudentAndMasterTeam Jenny's student]] - and takes her into a [[SpaceClouds nebula]] that he couldn't possibly navigate himself, [[FlawExploitation knowing that Jenny would use her powers to navigate the nebula for him]]. He did this to get at the source of the Articifers' power. Another one was used by the good guys in "The Taking of Pilot Jenny" which succeeded in freeing the captured planet Warren.
* BattleCry: The characteristic '''HI-YOU-GAH!''' of the Betelgeusian marines.
** "Let's croak (us some) toads!"
* BerserkButton:
** Call Toadborg a robot. Double dare ya. Watch what happens. Oh, and don't insinuate that he was just a worker before being converted into a {{Cyborg}}, rather than a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy warrior]].
** Interfere with Bruiser's brother Bruce's attempts to return home and learn why they're called BERSERKER Baboons.
* BerserkerTears: Shed by Bruiser after Bruce vanishes for the second time.
--> That's the second time the toads ''cost me MY BROTHER!''
* BigBad: Komplex.
* BigDamnHeroes:
** This kicks off the revelation of the BatmanGambit in "The Taking of Pilot Jenny" when, with the ''Righteous'' Crew seemingly at the mercy of Komplex and Toadborg, the ship they're all in is rocked by gunfire as the ''Indefatigable'' cuts through their stagnate defenses like a hot knife through butter.
** Another one occurs in "Bye Bye Berserker Baboon." The Terror Toad, a monstrous amphibian warrior, has the heroes cornered. To make matters worse, unlike his brethren, he is not afraid of Berserker Baboons and looks like he could eat them like popcorn. Bucky O'Hare, injured in a failed attack on the monster, suddenly dives down and burrows through the ground away, escaping. Unable to believe they've been abandoned by their leader, the others are treated to the sight of their ship suddenly launching and flying away. The monster gets closer and closer as the Air Marshal cackles that he's finally beaten even the "Great Bucky O'Hare." Suddenly, the sound of rockets firing is heard and Bucky returns on the Toad Croaker. Turns out he just went out to the next planet over to snag several jars of the Aniverse's best tasting flies, with which he proceeds to lure the Terror Toad back to the Toad Mothership where it proceeds to tear the place apart.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy:
** When Blinky was captured by the toads and reprogrammed, this was the result on him when he was rescued by the ''Righteous''.
* TheBigGuy: Big, lovable Bruiser.
* CanonForeigner: Bruiser, Commander Dogstar, Mimi [=LaFloo=], Toadborg, Frix and Frax, and Al Negator are all from the cartoon.
* CatFolk: Jenny and the residents of her home planet Aldebaran.
* ChekhovsGun: Actually, Willy's water gun, which is "confiscated" (read pilfered) by Deadeye in the second episode. It becomes VERY important to the crew when they're making their escape from the Toad Mothership. It's lampshaded later when the same tactic doesn't work a second time.
* ChickMagnet: Bucky and Willy.
* ChildProdigy: If Willy were not one of these, it's doubtful that he would have survived the first episode.
* ColdBloodedTorture: This happens by way of OffstageVillainy in the episode ''"The Artificers of Alderberan"'' when Princess Felicia [[LeeroyJenkins gets herself]] [[DamselInDistress captured by toads]]. The scene begins with a solitary toad forcing Felicia to [[{{Subversion}} watch]] [[PokeThePoodle terrible commercials]]. [[KnightOfCerebus Then Toadborg enters the room]], proceeds to [[EnragedByIdiocy literally]] throw the toad out of the room in disgust, [[AloneWithThePsycho leaving him alone with Felicia]]. Then he clutches her face [[TouchOfTheMonster in a rather]] [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty uncomfortable manner]]. This immediately precedes her [[DoubleSubversion being tortured by Toadborg offscreen]].
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Dogstar's voice is based on Creator/JimBackus.
* CoolShip: At least Bucky's ship's name is easily the coolest in Western TV animation, the ''Righteous Indignation''.
* CurbStompBattle: When Jenny first met Toadborg, she mistook him for a [[MechaMooks simple robot]] and tried to defeat him with a psychic blast. [[NoSell It didn't work]]: as it turns out, [[{{Cyborg}} cyborgs]] aren't nearly as susceptible to her psychic abilities as robots are. Toadborg retaliates by [[TheWorfEffect effortlessly blasting her to the floor]] and [[InstantSedation knocking her out]] [[KnockoutGas with an aerosol]].
* CuteButCacophonic: Felicia.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Felicia.
* {{Cyborg}}: [[DarthVaderClone Toadborg]] was a toad soldier who suffered a catastrophic injury and was rebuilt as a nearly invincible cyborg soldier.
* CyberCyclops: The one-eyed android Blinky.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The [[FanFic/TheBuckyOHareWebSeries "web series"]] continuing this show most definitely dove into this area.
* DayInTheLimelight: After "War of the Warts" every crew member of the ''Righteous Indignation'' got a least one episode in which to shine, sometimes two.
* DemotedToExtra: Toadborg becomes this in the NES game. While he is still a [[BossBattle boss character]], he is only the boss of the relatively easy Green Planet, and one of the easiest bosses to beat himself. This is in contrast to his status as TheDragon and KnightOfCerebus in the show.
* TheDragon: Toadborg, to Komplex.
** CoDragons: Toadborg and Toad Air Marshal often share this.
** DragonInChief: Toadborg
* TheDreaded: The Berserker Baboons. And that's ''after'' the Toads' genetic fear of Baboons has been neutralized.
--> '''Air Marshal''': Wait a minute! Now, the goggles are a neat trick, but the Betelgeusian Berserker Baboons are our most formidable foes in the Aniverse!
* DrillSergeantNasty: Bruiser falls into the role (or at least a kid-friendly version of it) quite easily, when he is a guest instructor at the Betelgeusian military academy. His mother is very proud of him.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the first three episodes, Frix and Frax have deep, gruff voices that actually make them sound somewhat tough. This is sharp contrast to all their other appearances where they have high, squeaky, whiny voices.
* EmpathyDollShot: In the ThemeSong opening. Also used in a flashback in the second episode.
* TheEmpire: And one populated by amphibians no less.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Bruiser's not evil, but he is a badass. And he loves his mother very much.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarKeep: The Toad Air Marshal, even after Komplex fires him in one episode.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Bruiser.
* ExpositoryThemeTune: The cartoon's theme song is a cross between this and BraggingThemeTune.
* TheFaceless: All of the human adults are shown from the neck down. The only humans whose faces we see are kids.
* FacelessGoons: Pretty much all of the toads except for the Toad Air Marshal and Toadborg.
* FantasticRacism: Komplex has a deep hatred against all non-Toad beings.
* FeatheredFiend: All ducks shown tend towards the anti-heroic side of things.
** The Corsair Canards are a gang of pirates who are most emphatically not ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything (the first thing we see them do is attack a luxury liner), but have a "no first use of violence"-policy (note, no ''first'' use, the Corsairs will gladly turn any ship that offers resistance into dust) which is enough to convince Bucky that the Corsairs are worth cultivating as allies against the Toads.
** Kamikaze Kamo is a ninja duck, and the leads LaResistance against the Toad-backed Lizards attempting to conquer Canopus III. Kamo and his people are decent enough, but they are also reluctant to hold back and will happily use bladed weapons and attack from ambush. Kamo is shown nailing a fleeing enemy in the back with a shuriken.
** On a more personal level, there is Deadeye Duck. Deadeye is a former Corsair Canard in good standing, and while he serves loyally as Bucky's master gunner, he is also far more likely to lie, cheat, steal and use gun violence in the name of the cause than the other main characters.
* TheFederation: The United Animal Security Council and its strong arm, S.P.A.C.E. (Such as it is, being made up of three ships and probably a little more than a dozen active crewmen).
* FictionalUnitedNations: Again, the United Animal Security Council.
* FiveBadBand:
** BigBad: Komplex
** TheDragon: Toadborg
** TheEvilGenius: Toad Air Marshal
** TheBrute: The Total Terror Toad
** TheDarkChick: Frix and Frax
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Bucky.
** TheLancer: Deadeye and Jenny share this slot, with Jenny being the NumberOne and Bucky's closest co-worker, and Deadeye being the more shady and pragmatic foil to Bucky's clean-cut front-page heroism.
** TheBigGuy: Bruiser and Deadeye share this slot. Both of them are heavy hitters, Bruiser with fists and feet and Deadeye with various guns (though Bruiser has proven himself to be a reasonably competent gunner when Deadeye is otherwise occupied).
** TheSmartGuy: Willy.
** TheChick: Blinky.
* FiveEpisodePilot: Okay a three episode one, [[TropesAreFlexible but who's counting]]?
* FlashOfPain: In the arcade game, bosses gain seizure times of [[TurnsRed turning orange]] whenever they're dead soon.
* FrenchJerk: Captain Smada.
* FriendOrIdolDecision: Toadborg wants the defense codes or he'll jettison Bucky, Jenny and Deadeye into space. Willy faces a moral dilemma. Does he destroy the disks containing the codes, or give them up to save his friends? At Bucky's insistence he smashes them, to Toadborg's fury.... until Al Negator turns up with a copy of the codes. Oops.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Before Komplex corrupted them, the toads were a lazy, decadent race with a penchant for shoddily-made consumer products.
* FrothyMugsOfWater: Former pirate Gunner Deadeye Duck's favored drink? Swamp Grass.
* FullyDressedCartoonAnimal: All the furry characters.
* FunWithAcronyms: S.P.A.C.E.: Sentient Protoplasm Against Colonial Encroachment
* GeniusBruiser: Toadborg.
** Bruce. He isn't quite as badass as his brother Bruiser, but makes a credible enough OneManArmy, is a warp drive engineer by trade, and builds a teleporter out of scrap.
* GogglesDoNothing: Bucky's aviator cap has a pair of large goggles that he never pulls down over his eyes.
* GranolaGirl: Willy's mother. Her name is "Sunshine", and in her first appearance she is gearing up for a "Save the Whales"-rally.
* GroinAttack: Jenny kicks a toad in the family jewels in the first episode.
* HandicappedBadass: Deadeye has only one eye.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Commander Dogstar and the crew of the ''Indefatigable'' in the TV-series.
* HeroWorshipper: Felicia to Jenny.
* HoldingOutForAHero: The enslaved hares put to work building a new climate converter are waiting to be rescued by Bucky O'Hare, which irritates Mimi [=LaFloo=] who is trying to organize a [[LaResistance resistance]] movement to free themselves.
* HostileTerraforming: The toads have a machine which can completely change the climate and ecology of a conquered planet into a swamp. Given what we see of the cities on such converted worlds, this cannot be a pleasant experience for anything currently on the surface when this happens.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: Every singe female character in the entire series fits this trope. However, not all of them have [[FurryFemaleMane hair]].
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: The Toad Air Marshal. He sees himself as Bucky's arch-nemesis but Bucky seems to view him as little more than an annoyance.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: While Jenny and Bucky were implied a few times to having feelings for each other (Jenny got jealous when Mimi kissed Bucky and Bucky once said that he'd trust Jenny with his life and that he'd go to the ends of the Aniverse for her, plus the way he winked when she hugged him) they never treated each other any differently than their other crewmates. In fact, the one who received the most affection from Jenny was Willy.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: And with a flying disk no less. Also some of the shots Deadeye pulls off seem fairly unlikely even given his background.
* InformedAbility: The Toad Air Marshal is forever talking about his accomplishments and skills, but for the run of the series he's much more of joke character than anything else. Of course, considering the only guy in the entire Empire who seems remotely competent is in a higher position than him and above that is a super-computer, maybe he really is the best Komplex could get for the job.
* InterspeciesRomance: All of the implied romances are this. See ShipTease for more details.
* JerkAss:
** Vice-Chairman Grebb.
** Toad Air Marshal also.
** And Al Negator.
* KnightOfCerebus: Toadborg. [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain The Air Marshal is incompetent]] and the [[{{Mooks}} toads are ineffectual]], but Toadborg is tough, smart, competent and dangerous.
* LadyLand: Jenny's home planet Aldeberan seems to be this.
* LargeHam: In-universe example: Bruiser's TV appearances are GLORIOUSLY hammy.
* LighterAndSofter: While the [[AdaptationDisplacement better known]] TV series [[AnimatedAdaptation adaptation]] [[NobodyCanDie doesn't allow anyone to die]] on either side of the Toad Empire vs S.P.A.C.E. conflict, the original comic wasn't restricted by any [[MoralGuardians television censors]]. As a result, characters could -and often did- actually die. Poor Bruce got [[NotEnoughToBury reduced to ashes]] in the first issue. In addition, the TV series would [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar generally]] substitute [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment wacky and silly Toad TV commercials]] for [[ColdBloodedTorture torture]] and [[WarIsHell war devastation]].
* LovableNerd: Willy.
* MagiTek: The sensors of the ''Righteous Indignation'' were designed by the [[OurMagesAreDifferent Artificers of Aldebaran]].
* MaleGaze: A rather gratuitous example occurs in "The Good the Bad, and the Worty": Jenny gets [[InstantSedation sedated]] after being on the receiving end of a CurbStompBattle courtesy of Toadborg. As she loses consciousness, the scene abruptly cuts to a [[https://youtu.be/YgU_-CUpQ7g?t=427 tightly focused shot of her breasts]] that [[MyEyesAreUpHere leaves her head completely out of the frame]] as [[DeadHandShot her raised arms fall limp]].
* MarriedToTheJob: Bucky and Deadeye.
* MeaningfulName: Most of the characters have these.
* MedalsForEveryone: "Bye Bye, Berserker Baboon" ''begins'' with Bruiser being decorated for valorous conduct.
* TheMentor: Bucky actually has one in the form of the mysterious Mentor, a rabbit who taught him how to be a warrior. Given how young he's portrayed as, one wonders when he had time to do that AND go through the Academy on Genus.
* TheMole: Chairman Harman turns out to be [[MobileSuitHuman a tiny newt controlling a robot body]].
* MommasBoy: Bruiser.
* {{Mook Lieutenant}}s: Frix and Frax.
* MsFanservice: Jenny, as well as the Aldebarans in general.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Deadeye.
* TheNapoleon: The Toad Air Marshal, swagger stick and all. Bucky also to a certain degree.
* NeverSayDie: While the cartoon adheres to this, the comic [[AvertedTrope averts it totally]].
** Willy drops the word "killed" during the Challenge of Skills between Redjack and Deadeye, though.
* NintendoHard: The NES game. Surprisingly, it wasn't bad programming gave the game this distinction, it was the requirement for skill.
* NonMammalMammaries: The female toads have these.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: According to Blinky, the reason the Toads' initial push was so unprepared for was that everyone thought they were completely harmless[[note]]Which they were...[[BrainwashedAndCrazy at first]].[[/note]]... Silly Mammals.
* NotQuiteDead: In the cartoon, Bruce gets zapped by the photon accelerator and everyone thinks he's dead (or rather, had "attained oneness with the universe") as a result. He actually got teleported across the Aniverse. In the comic, however, Bruce actually had attained [[NoBodyLeftBehind oneness with the universe]].
* OffModel: There's times where the animators end up drawing Bucky and Deadeye like [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Bugs and Daffy]] and in a few scenes, The Air Marshal looks like he stepped out of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. Though as the show is animated by Creator/{{AKOM}}, who also animated those other shows, it's not ''that'' surprising.
** It only gets worse as the show goes on, with an increase of ugly drawings and miscolored characters. With "Corsair Canards" being the worst in this regard.
* OhCrap: Nearly all toads are terrified of Berzerker Baboons and they have this reaction whenever one shows up.
* PortalDoor: A literal example; the portal between Earth and the Aniverse is the door of Willy's closet.
* PsychicPowers: Jenny and all of the Aldebarans have these.
* PunnyName: Come on...Al Negator?
** The toad scientists who built Komplex are named '''Hop'''kins, '''Wart'''imer and '''Croak'''ley.
** "Willy [=DuWitt=]". Just say his full name and think about it.
* RecycledInSpace: ''ComicStrip/BuckRogers'' with anthropomorphic animals.
** The arcade game functions similar to that of ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' as both of these games are run-and-gun action games [[BeatEmUp on a semi-isometric view]].
* ReformedCriminal: Deadeye straddles the line between this and RecruitingTheCriminal. He used to be a member of the notorious pirate band the Corsair Canards, but seems to have left on good terms. He is well-known and respected among the Corsairs (though some consider him a sell-out) and keeps in touch with his old shipmates. He is also the master gunner of the ''Righteous Indignation'' and a loyal and trustworthy member of Bucky's crew.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Al Negator is a two-timing scuzzball only out for profit, willing even to betray the toads. Likewise, Samurai lizard Sly Leezard is quite the bastard. Note that this is subverted when Sly's boss, the supreme commander of the Samurai lizards, has him punished for breaking the Samurai's code of honor, and lets the heroes go free (so long as they never return).
* RestrainingBolt: K.O.M.P.L.E.X. had at least one programmed into him, he cannot hurt his designers, so when he took over the toads, he sent them into deep space.
* RobotSoldier: The Toads use some of these as a supplement to their armies. Jenny made the mistake of thinking [[{{Cyborg}} Toadborg]] was one of them.
* RoleReprisal: Most of the cast of the cartoon returned for the Arcade Game, with the exception of Samuel Vincent, whose character was instead played by Scott [=McNeil=]
* Creator/ScottMcNeil: Deadeye Duck and various other characters, it's one of his early gigs.
** He also [[TheOtherDarrin stands in for Blinky]] in the arcade game.
* SecretKeeper: Willy regarding Jenny. In fact, he gets let in on a number of secrets from all the crew over the course of the series.
* {{Short Runner|s}}: The TV series was gone after 13 episodes.
* SpacePirates: The Corsair Canards, Deadeye's old outfit.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In the comics, Bruce dies and goes onto be replaced by Bruiser and Willy. He was instead teleported to a faroff galaxy in the AnimatedAdaptation, and comes back for a second appearance.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Jenny is the only female in Bucky's crew.
* ShipTease: The show clearly teases three possible relationships, but due to the show's short time on the air, [[NoRomanticResolution nothing is developed in any concrete way]]. The possible relationships are: Jenny and Willy, Jenny and Bucky, Bucky and Mimi.
** Jenny started showing [[EveryoneCanSeeIt very overt affections]] for Willy [=DuWitt=] in the very first episode, at the exact moment [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan he decides to stay and help the Aniverse]] instead of [[IChooseToStay simply returning home]]. By the end of the three part pilot, she had kissed him several times [[StockKisses in increasingly affectionate ways]] - the last being directly on the mouth - and also given him a magical Alderberan memory stone [[SubspaceAnsible to keep contact with him]].[[note]]That last point is very significant, since Alderberans are ''very'' secretive regarding their magic, to the point where [[TheFettered Jenny hides her magical powers from the rest of the Righteous Indignation's crew]], going so far as to [[HoldingBackThePhlebotinum ask for permission to use an invisible psychic blast]] to [[HonorBeforeReason save her own life]]![[/note]] Willy responded to each of her advances with a CrushBlush.
** In the immediate following episode, [[CunningLikeAFox Mimi LaFloo]] developed feelings for Bucky O'Hare after he [[RescueRomance saved her from a Toad labor camp]]. Afterwards, she was swiftly [[TheCaptain given a ship to command]] on Bucky's recommendation. She proceeds to thank him with a kiss, which causes him to [[{{Adorkable}} break into a bashful grin]]. Seeing this, [[GreenEyedMonster Jenny]] [[HaughtyHmph "humphs" haughtily]] and scoffs about Mimi's lack of propriety... [[{{Hypocrite}} despite her own behavior in all of the previous episodes]] [[NotSoDifferent being essentially the same]].
* StatuesqueStunner: Jenny is quite tall compared to nearly everyone else, and is also a major source of {{Fanservice}}.
* SufficientlyAdvancedAlien: Encountered in the comic book in the form of a white mouse. Apparently anything he creates that travels outside his "sphere of influence" ceases to be, which the toads found out to their detriment when the magma they stole from his planet disappeared when they got far enough away. He proved to be something of a benevolent version of this trope, using his powers to rescue the toads on the ship (though he later admitted the place he'd sent them to was known for its high property taxes).
* TelepathicSpacemen: Jenny, and all other Articifers.
* ThemeNaming: Frix and Frax.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Frix and Frax, again.
* TitleDrop: "And now an update on Bucky O'Hare and the Toad Wars!"
* TokenHuman: Willy.
* TooDumbToLive:
** While the toads that recklessly fly into the Deadeye's general area might count, they're BrainwashedAndCrazy as an excuse. The United Animal Security Council, on the other hand, seems almost actively trying to get wiped out by the Toad Empire.
** Frix and Frax, to an insane level.
* TookALevelInBadass: Many characters, but Jenny and Willy stand out the most.
* TriggerHappy: Deadeye solves every problem by shooting at it.
* [[TheDividual The Twindividual]]: Frix and Frax. They're only distinguishable from one another due to the Frix's larger chin and jawline compared to Frax. Otherwise they're essentially identically and almost never appear separately.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: Bucky has a cousin named Jeffrey who is nearly identical to him (except he's voiced by Creator/ScottMcNeil). Bucky uses it to his advantage.
* UnknownRival: The Air Marshal considers Bucky his arch-nemesis. Bucky considers the Air Marshal a minor speed-bump on the road to taking down Toadborg and KOMPLEX.
* WeaksauceWeakness: The Void-Droid -- very powerful, but not [[KillItWithWater waterproof]] [[spoiler:(initially).]]
-->'''Air Marshal''': I don't believe it! It was ray shielded and missile shielded!\\
'''Frax''': [[CaptainObvious But not waterproof]]!
* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: The toads and pretty much every non-mammalian species in the show, apart from birds of course.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Toads, with the exception of Toadborg, fear the berserker baboons.
** Though initially upon meeting Willy...
-->'''Willy''': Stay back or I'll zap you!
-->'''Toadborg''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Ah! A Betelgeusian Berserker Baboon! Stay back! Help!]]
* WilyWalrus: Subverted with Harman, a walrus who is part of the benevolent United Animal Security Council. [[spoiler:While he ''is'' evil, being TheMole who was sent by the villains to infiltrate the Council, it is later revealed that he is not actually a walrus, but [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent a newt]] piloting [[RoboticReveal a robot walrus body]].]]
* WorldOfFunnyAnimals: Every planet in the Aniverse.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Jenny's apprentice Felicia has this.
* ZergRush: The toad soldiers have training and hardware that's usually shown as being inferior to what Bucky's crew and lone ship can bring to bear in a fight. The main reason they're still dangerous is they're the only side to have an actual fleet and armies. To keep the amphibian menace from engulfing the Aniverse, by the end of the show SPACE has managed to assemble a grand total of three ships, each with a crew of about six members.
