Go To



* AHellOfATime: In one episode, L.O.S.E. decide to go to the center of the earth to escape a bitterly chilly day. There they find a hotel for villains where [[{{Hellhound}} Doomageddon]] is a special guest. It's run by a red man with horns, a goatee, hooves, and a tail and fire is everywhere.



* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In "Trashpocalypse Now" the scene where Voltar and Frogg catch Red Menace cleaning in the bathroom is played out like [[CaughtWithYourPantsDown catching someone doing something else in the bathroom.]]
---> '''Red Menace:''' Don't look at me! Don't look at me!



* FoodAndDrinkThemeNaming: Rose, the leader of the Force Fighters V, is named after a type of wine.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: A very old ClassyCatBurglar known as the Cougar who repeatedly hits on the League. Think about it, it'll come to you. [[spoiler: Clarification: A 'cougar' is a slang term for an older woman, usually middle-aged, who seduces young men.]]
** Red Menace actually refers to Doomageddon as a "Pan-dimensional Hellhound" in "Table for Four".

Added DiffLines:

* LowSpeedChase: In one episode, the team is running away in their golf cart from a guy on a Segway: very slowly.


* ArtImitatesArt: Frogg and Red imitate ''Series/AmericanGothic'' as part of a disguise, while Voltar and Doomy dress like farm animals.

* CluckingFunny: As part of a farm disguise (which also saw Frogg and Red dress like ''Series/AmericanGothic''), Voltar dresses like a chicken, and amazingly is able to lay an egg.

** They actually got away with saying Hellhound once. As of late, this has been heard in most broadcasts of the episode that aired... Without censoring, even during early hours when kids would be watching.

* CreepyCircusMusic: This type of music serves as the {{Leitmotif}} for the MonsterClown robot Chuckles.

to:

* CreepyCircusMusic: This type of music serves as the {{Leitmotif}} for the MonsterClown robot Chuckles.Chuckles, a deranged RobotClown who tortures people on their birthdays. It sounds pretty unnerving with his high-pitched voice and [[TheHyena constant laughter]].

Added DiffLines:

* RottenRockAndRoll:
** Famed supervillain Skullossus gets his own rock {{leitmotif}}, in contrast to the titular team of {{Villain Protagonist}}s, who don't even ''get'' a leitmotif, in keeping with their status as {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s.
** Rock Gothlington is a metal star who is popular among supervillains. He also has supernatural powers and a "Destruct-O-Beam".

Added DiffLines:

* RobotClown: Chuckles the Clown is a robot created by [[MadScientist Dr. Frogg]] when he was a kid, to get back at kids who didn't invite him to their birthday parties. Chuckles appears to be a NonIronicClown at first, but when he is wound up, he reveals his cruel nature, playing painful pranks on the team.


'''''The League of Super Evil''''' ([[FunWithAcronyms acronym L.O.S.E.]]) is a cartoon series on Creator/{{YTV}} in its native Canada and Creator/CartoonNetwork in USA about a QuirkyMinibossSquad made up of {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s. The team is led by the PointyHairedBoss Voltar, a CardCarryingVillain and all-around LargeHam. He constantly attempts to be evil, but is largely incompetent of anything more serious than PokeThePoodle. Forming Voltar's posse of mooks is the MadScientist ButtMonkey Doktor Frogg and the DumbMuscle [[MinionWithAnFInEvil Red Menace]]. Their TeamPet Doomageddon is a pandimensional [[strike: hell]] [[{{Bowdlerized}} doom]]hound and ExtremeOmnivore.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyHuman: The plot of the show presents Voltar as at least something ''close'' to human, but he has a few traits that might say otherwise. His [[BlackEyesOfCrazy black eyes]] actually ''are'' black rather than just looking that way because of his mask, his skin is unusually pale, he doesn't appear to grow at all with age, and for whatever reason his urine turns pool water ''purple'' instead of blue.


Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyLook: Voltar is at least a young adult since he's apparently already been through grade school and can rent an apartment by himself, but you ''really'' wouldn't guess that based on how he looks, sounds, or acts.


* HoistByHisOwnPetard: "Justice Gene". [[spoiler: Gene is defeated by his own organization's stringent rules. Specifically, he wears the wrong type of socks.]]

** You could also count one episode where at the end, Voltar and Justine Gene are trapped in cement and are freed thousands of years in the future to find out that Red Menace had since conquered the world (A giant statue of him riding a unicorn) Though this was only for a one-shot gag, not an actual plot point.

** In one episode, two of the Hero Antagonists perform one of these, [LampshadeHanging and afterwards basically saying: "No wonder bad guys love doing that"]]
