* Flanderization: Doctor X in ''Robot Atak'' and the ''X Missions'' sequels. Granted, he was a fairly cookie-cutter villain to begin with in the 1995 cartoon series, but in the 2000 cgi series, he's fleshed out into an interesting, menacing and well-written villain. Starting with ''Robot Atak'', on the other hand, he's dumbed down into a stereotypical, cartoonishly evil villain who spouts cheesy dialogue and is very hard to take seriously as a proper villain, to the point where he wouldn't feel out of place in Joel Schumacher's Batman movies.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsPetty: Doctor X wants world domination because he wanted everyone to treat him like a hero but was instead treated him like a madman.

Added DiffLines:

In the first movie, '''Robot Atak''', Doctor X's henchman No Face, disguised as Action Man, kidnaps scientist Professor Moran, so Doctor X can force him to develop a mind control gas. Action Man and Action Force (Flynt and Redwolf) must clear Action Man's name, defeat Doctor X's robot army and stop his mind control plans.

The second movie, '''X Missions''', is a retelling of the Franchise/GIJoe movie ''Valor versus Venom'', but with the Action Man cast of characters. Doctor X kidnaps citizens and takes DNA samples from zoo creatures to create an army of man-beast hybrids.

Third and last, '''Código Gangrena''', only available in Latin America, has Professor Gangrene freeing Doctor X and No Face from prison and later betraying them. Action Man and Action Force then have to stop Gangrene's plans.
