[[WesternAnimation/SinbadLegendOfTheSevenSeas Eris]]: Goddess of Chaos and disorder, and the great evil in the dreamworks animated multiverse. Distantly related to Hades of Disney's conflict, she use to do all her evil on her own, as her divine powers could easily summon monsters, freeze seas and manipulate mortals however she wanted. However, one day while she was trying to send a world into chaos, she ran into a problem. [[WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt God]] was also at work in the world, and despite being less directly active, Eris found herself needing a council of villains to do her bidding in a way that God could not interfere, and thus founded the Order of Chaos in order to circumvent this problem.

[[WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}} Makunga and the Fossa]]: Makunga was an associate to the friends who wanted to steal command of the African kingdom from Zuba in order to collect souls from his hunts. He was eventually defeated by Alex and his friends, then abandoned by Eris, who abondoned him soon after.
* the Fossa were Eris' jungle-dwelling [[Mooks mooks]] who were assigned to and corrupt Alex into becoming an agent, but they failed and have not been seen ever since.

[[WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar Dr. Blowhole]]: He is a mad scientist dolphin who plans to take revenge on the human race, who forced him to perform tricks at Coney Island for their amusement, by conquering the earth and claiming everyone's souls. He is described by Skipper and Private as being "pure evil, with skin that's surprisingly pleasant to the touch," which Blowhole claims is because he always moisturizes. He appears to love rubbing it in that he has far superior technology than the penguins do, thanks to Eris, which usually gets on Kowalski's nerves. Unlike other clients of the friends, instead of simply leaving his enemies to die in a deathtrap, he typically stays to oversee their destruction personally, well aware they'll likely escape somehow (telling Julian as much when asked), unless he'd be killed as well if he stays (such as locking them in his base as it self destructs). this makes quite the useful [[genresavvy]] member of eris' clients

* Wicked jack, the pumpkin alien, was an experiment made by the friends by mutating several pumpkins with the evil blood of gallaxhar. although the friends had hoped that jack would collect souls more efficiently than gallaxhar, the mutant pumpkin instead wanted to eat every single piece of halloween candy in sight, and was taken down by the monsters through that way.

* Master Tigress. Leader of the 5, and quite possibly the strongest of them. She was adopted by master Shifu when she was little, and thus trained in tiger style kung fu for as long as she could remember. However, as Shifu was still closed off because of tai lung, she grew almost as cold as he was, and it was only when she was defeated by her "older brother" that she realized she needed to reevaluate how she was living her life. In time, she grew softer and more compassionate, but she's still the tough as nails leader of the group, ready to commit her team to safeguarding china whenever necessary.

* Nickolas St. North AKA Santa Claus: North my be boisterous, bombastic, and sometimes a bit overentusiastic, but at his core is a wonder at the beauty of the world, and as the guardian with the most recognized power, uses his north pole as their base of operations. He's also a keen mentor, and a daring spellcaster as well.
* Bunnymund the Easter Bunny: When a rabbit protected his burrow from being shot in australia, man in the moon decided to give this ordinary rabbit a promotion to the bringer of secular easter joy and renewal. Tough as nails, but still dedicated to spreading hope, Bunny's definitely rough around the edges, but he takes his job spreading joy to the world very seriously.

[[WMG: Dreamwork's new films (How to Train Your Dragon, Megamind, etc) as well as their new logo are signaling their tone for the new decade. DarkerAndEdgier with great story and heart. This will cause the rise of Dreamworks and the subsquent fall of Pixar.]]
Remember in the late 80's when Disney's movies were bombing and Don Bluth's films were sucessful, and how everything went vice versa during the 90's? The same thing is going to happen with Pixar and Dreamworks. Pixar has been the lead for about 15 years now, and Dreamworks has been inferior to them for about the same amount of time. ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' is (in this troper's opinion) The strongest and most successful Pixar film, and when you're at the top, there's only one way you can go. Case in point, Pixar's last film is ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} 2'', a sequel to their least successful film, which has done even worse by the company's standards. Pixar is also making a ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' sequel or spinoff, which is what took Newt's slot. In 2010, Dreamwork's films have been considerbly darker and more fleshed out, such as in ''HTTYD'' and to a lesser extent ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} 4''. This might just signal a role reversal, and Pixar might just reach its low point, its apocalypse; Its Pixar-calypse if you will if ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' doesn't measure up artistically in 2012. Dreamworks might just be on the road to genuinely good movies...

[[TheRoadToElDorado Tzekel Kan]]: The Mad Priest of El Dorado, Tzekel-Kan ruled over El Dorado with an iron fist, and intensely enjoyed human sacrifice, as they were his way of paying off his dark magic deals with Eris. He competed with the Chief in trying to please the "gods", but after Miguel stood up to him, he learned that Miguel and Tulio were in fact mortals and connived to destroy them. To do this, he made another deal with the Friends to ask for greater dark magic and the ability to control a giant stone jaguar. After returning from his alleged demise in the climax, he teamed up with Cortés, who wasn't working with Aku and Eris, to capture the citizens of El Dorado, but was captured by Cortés after his plot is foiled. His final fate is unknown, although it is implied that he was to be sold as a slave, and once Tzekel Kan passes away due to fatigue, it will be clear that Aku most likely will claim his soul.

[[ThePenguinsOfMadagascar Dr. Blowhole]]: He is a mad scientist dolphin who plans to take revenge on the human race, who forced him to perform tricks at Coney Island for their amusement, by conquering the earth and claiming everyone's souls. He is described by Skipper and Private as being "pure evil, with skin that's surprisingly pleasant to the touch," which Blowhole claims is because he always moisturizes. He appears to love rubbing it in that he has far superior technology than the penguins do, thanks to Eris, which usually gets on Kowalski's nerves. Unlike other clients of the friends, instead of simply leaving his enemies to die in a deathtrap, he typically stays to oversee their destruction personally, well aware they'll likely escape somehow (telling Julian as much when asked), unless he'd be killed as well if he stays (such as locking them in his base as it self destructs). this makes quite the useful [[genresavvy]] member of eris' clients

[[MonstersVsAliens Galaxhar and Wicked Jack the pumpkin alien]]: Gallaxhar was an evil alien overlord who hoped to take over Earth, in the name of Eris and the Friends. He was served by gigantic robot probes (around the same size as Insectosaurus) and possessed a giant cloning machine. The reason why he joined up with the friends, he claims, is because he seemed to have suffered several traumas in his youth, driving him to destroy his own homeworld, and planned to make a new one on Earth, for his his main goal. As his side-plan, he aimed to collect quantonium - the substance that transformed Susan - to give his cloning machine enough power to generate an army of clones of himself to conquer Earth, and was determined to extract it from Susan. Unfortunately, his first attempt to retrieve the Quantonium, by robot probe, failed. His second attempt, which required him to visit Earth, nearly succeeded. He was able to capture Susan, whose body contained the Quantonium, and extract the element from her. However, her monster friends saved her and programmed the computer to cause the ship to self destruct. Although Gallaxhar and most of his clones are destroyed and soul-collected along with the ship, a few clones escaped on their personal hovering devices. Though it is likely the clones were found by Eris, and slain viciously for their failure.

They know people get annoyed with Pixar for never having a female lead and Disney for being all about its princesses, and are trying to capture that audience. In the last few movies that weren't sequels we've got a movie that's totally on the side of its female leads who are [[{{Chickification}} chickified]] by no one. For instance, ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'' as a fearless reporter who immediately shoots down her [[http://www.heartless-bitches.com/rants/niceguys/niceguys.shtml Nice Guy]] and for getting legitimately upset at her love interest for lying to her, ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' has a tough and clever viking girl who bows to no one, ''MonstersVsAliens'' has the only superheroine origin movie we're likely to see on the big screen in a long time (even if it's disguised by calling her a "monster"), and the ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' series has yet another tough and smart fighter who also manages to be a catgirl who ''isn't'' sexualized, but is no less an AmazonianBeauty in her own way. Also, ''WesternAnimation/TheCroods'' have a family of [[BigBeautifulWoman thick heavyset women]] and are proud of it. This approach goes all the way back to ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'', which gives us two supporting women who are big plot movers and often act with more guts and inner strength than the actual hero of the film.
