"I'm not giving up on you!"
Voiced by: Daniel Henney
Appearances: Big Hero 6 | The Seriesnote 

Hiro's older brother and Baymax's creator.


  • Adorably Precocious Child: Implied to have been one in his youth. Tadashi had to mature at a very young age after his parents' death to be a good role model and father figure to his younger brother.
  • All-Loving Hero: Tadashi's concerns extend to the general public; he developed Baymax with the sincere hope that the healthcare companion would help people all over the world. He is dedicated to helping others no matter what the cost is to him, a statement undeniably proven when he makes the ultimate sacrifice in an attempt to protect his teacher.
  • Always Second Best: Tadashi's voice actor Daniel Henney states that Tadashi "had his bad days" where he was jealous of Hiro's intellect and felt inferior to him, but pushed it away because supporting Hiro was more important.
  • Always Someone Better: It is implied that Hiro feels that he'll never be as great as Tadashi.
  • Anger Born of Worry: In the movie, after asking Hiro if he's okay and hurt as they escape Yama and his goons, Tadashi does a hilarious 180° and starts berating Hiro while driving on his moped.
    Tadashi: You okay?!
    Hiro: Yeah!
    Tadashi: Are you hurt?!
    Hiro: No!
    Tadashi: Then what were you thinking?! Knucklehead!
  • Arc Words: "Someone has to help!" becomes this to Hiro. Justified as they're Tadashi's last words and they had a great impact on Hiro.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Like Hiro, Tadashi is half White and half Japanese, and is a robotics student.
  • Augmented Reality: In "Obake Yashiki", Obake uses projections via contact lenses on Hiro to give him the impression Tadashi came back from the dead.
  • Back from the Dead: In the series episode "Obake Yashiki", or perhaps his spirit but this, unfortunately, is not the real Tadashi.
  • Badass Biker: Escapes Yama and his goons on his moped like a pro. Too bad he and Hiro get arrested soon after, though.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: He's a truly beautiful young man, and wears his heart on his sleeve.
  • Big Brother Bully: Played for Laughs and subverted. He grabs Hiro by the ankles and shakes him around to get him to come up with a project for the tech showcase.
  • Big Brother Instinct: One of his defining traits is how protective he is of his little brother:
    • In his Establishing Character Moment, he rushes in to save Hiro when he is about to be beaten up by Yama's goons after Yama discovers that Hiro hustled him.
    • A blink-and-you'll-miss-it-moment, but Tadashi gives a Death Glare to Krei when he was gonna leave with the microbot (surely to steal it), and looks at Hiro protectively. See for yourself.
    • In the manga, Tadashi chased after some kids who were bullying Hiro.
    • In the series' Christmas Episode "The Present", a flashback scene shows a young Tadashi jumping Hiro to safety when his snow machine goes haywire.
  • Big Brother Mentor: For Hiro. As the only male figure in his little brother's life, he has carried the burden of responsibility from a young age, knowing he had to lead Hiro and be a good role model.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Arrives on his scooter with perfect timing to save Hiro from an angry Mr. Yama.
  • Big Man on Campus: According to Wasabi, Tadashi is considered "a legend" at SFIT. Many students such as Karmi admired him and his work.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Like Hiro, Tadashi has bushy eyebrows.
  • Brainy Brunette: Tadashi has black hair, is a student at SFIT, and created Baymax.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Like Hiro, Tadashi is half Japanese, half white.
  • The Cameo: Tadashi has multiple ones through the series, mostly through photographs and video footage from Baymax's tests. Even if he's not always in the center of the intrigue, it showcases that he's not forgotten and will always be part of Hiro's life.
  • Canon Foreigner: In the original Big Hero 6 comics, Hiro never had a sibling. Tadashi is, essentially, a stand-in for comic-book Hiro's father.
  • Catchphrase:
    • Says "unbelievable" whenever exasperated.
    • "Look for a new angle."
    • "I'm not giving up on you."
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: He feels the need to help, even when there's nothing that can be done. This gets him killed, trying to save Professor Callaghan from a burning building despite his own lack of rescue experience or equipment.
  • Cool Big Bro: Tadashi is eternally supportive of Hiro, and encouraged him to do something great with his genius.
  • Dare to Be Badass: He encourages Hiro to use his smarts for something greater.
  • Dead Hat Shot: After being killed off-screen, there's a shot of Tadashi's cap while Hiro is heard screaming his brother's name in the background.
  • Deadpan Snarker: "Wow. Washed up at fourteen. So sad."
  • Death by Origin Story: Deconstructed. His death is what spurs Hiro to fight Yokai, but his grief from it is what drives him into Revenge Before Reason, nearly murdering Yokai when he finds out who he is.
  • Death Glare:
    • Tadashi gives a hilarious one to Hiro when they're both in jail; most specifically, as Hiro has his cell to himself due to being a minor and Tadashi is squished against the bars of the cell by the other botfighters.
    • A blink-and-you'll-miss-it, but he gives a brief one to Yama and his thugs while he rescues Hiro from them.
    • He gives another, more discrete one to Krei when he was gonna leave with Hiro's invention.
    • In the deleted A Minor Kidroduction prologue (starting at 0:32), a younger Tadashi gives a nasty one to bullies making fun of Hiro, which scares them enough to walk out the class with their heads low.
  • Decomposite Character: He has some traits that originally belonged to Hiro's older and more mature comic counterpart, such as being the one to build Baymax.
  • Determinator: Tadashi did eighty-four tests before Baymax finally worked. He also wasn't going to give up on Hiro constantly encouraging him to do something with his life.
    Tadashi: I'm not giving up on you...
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: In the manga adaptation, Tadashi doesn't die in a fire, he gets sucked into a portal while trying to help Robert Callaghan bring Abigail back. Hiro believes that he could be alive in Another Dimension but Baymax confirmed that he wasn't in the Acid-Trip Dimension where they found Abigail.
  • Dub Name Change: In the Korean and Mandarin Chinese dub of the film, Tadashi is renamed "Teddy Armada".
  • The Dutiful Son: More like "The Dutiful Nephew", but Tadashi is the more responsible one than Hiro, and makes it clear that his brother has to make it up to their aunt for his illegal botfighting.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His first scene involves him saving Hiro from Yama and his goons, asking if he's alright before punching him for doing such a dangerous stunt, and also asking Hiro if he plans to use talents for something better.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: Can be seen in one of video footages of him testing Baymax.
  • Family Eye Resemblance: He and Hiro share the same chocolate brown eye color, that they apparently got from their father (who has brown eyes, while their mother has green eyes like Aunt Cass).
  • Famous Last Words: "Callaghan's in there! Someone has to help!"
  • Fanboy: Hiro mentions that Tadashi was a big fan of Trevor Trengrove and got inspired by his theory to build Baymax. Turns out the theory was actually Wendy Wower's, which Trengrove stole from her, and Hiro ends up idolizing her later on and telling her about Tadashi's admiration of her theory.
  • Fatal Flaw: His selflessness when he tries to save Callaghan from the fire. He doesn't consider that Hiro might try to follow him inside (which Hiro does) or the grief it would cause Hiro if he fails.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Tadashi is the Responsible to Hiro's Foolish. He regularly attends school (unlike Hiro, who spends most of his time bot-fighting since he graduated from high school early) and encourages Hiro to be more productive with his intelligence. In the beginning of the film, he's the one who bails Hiro out of trouble when Yama's goons are about to beat him up.
  • The Gadfly: Is not above playfully teasing his brother, as revealed in the scene where he tells him his fly was down for the whole time Hiro presented his project at the showcase... and it was correct.
  • The Glasses Gotta Go: A meta example. Early concept arts of Tadashi had him wearing glasses, but it was eventually dropped.
  • Handshake Substitute: He and Hiro would fist bump and then make explosion noises.
  • Happier Home Movie: Baymax has record of all of Tadashi's videos testing him, as well of "video diaries" of Tadashi expressing himself to Baymax. When Hiro needs them the most, Baymax shows them to him to cheer him up or inspire him.
  • Happily Adopted: After the death of his parents, he and Hiro got taken in by their Aunt Cass, who raised them as her own for the past 10 years.
  • The Heart: Tadashi provides the optimistic drive to the motivations of his friends and his younger brother.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite being the Determinator and always encouraging Hiro to never give up, "Failure Mode" shows a complete different side of Tadashi: being frustrated after 57 missed attempts and considering giving up. Shows that even if he was optimistic and determinate, Tadashi was still human and had bad days where he considered giving up was an option, thinking spending so much time and energy on Baymax was pointless and would never work.
    Hiro: I never saw him like that...
  • Hollywood Nerd: He looks like a male model, or perhaps a Disney Prince, but he's skilled with building robots.
  • Honor Before Reason: He goes in to attempt to save Callaghan from a building completely engulfed in flames, with nothing but one eyewitness account that Callaghan was still in the building in the first place. While this is very noble, on the other side of the coin, he doesn't even remotely consider that his brother may go in after him, which Hiro does in fact attempt to do or the grief he will inflict upon Hiro if he fails in his rescue attempt (which he does).
  • Iconic Item: Is rarely seen without his San Fransokyo Ninjas baseball cap. It's one of the few things Hiro has left of him after his death.
  • It Runs in the Family: He scolds Hiro for bot fighting the exact same way Aunt Cass scolds him and Hiro after bailing them out of jail. Also the use of the word "knucklehead".
  • Killed Offscreen: Died in the Exposition Hall explosion trying to rescue Callaghan. The only thing the audience sees is the building exploding, and a shot of Tadashi's cap while Hiro screams his name in the background.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Hiro, Tadashi isn't just his big brother. He's also his best friend and the most important figure in his life. His death sent Hiro into depression.
  • Meaningful Name: A common meaning for Tadashi's name is "loyal" and his name sounds like the Japanese adjective tadashii (正しい) which means "fair," "proper," or "righteous." All of which matches his Nice Guy and All-Loving Hero personality.
  • Mixed Ancestry: He's half white and half Japanese.
  • Morality Chain Beyond the Grave: Tadashi being Hiro's Only Friend and father figure growing up, his death sent Hiro into severe depression. Once Hiro realized that his death wasn't accidental, he decides to create a superhero team to stop Yokai and bring Tadashi justice. However, learning Yokai's identity as Callaghan drives Hiro furious and almost commits the irreparable by ordering Baymax to kill him. After Baymax denies Hiro the access to his chip's access port, he asks the Armor-Piercing Question of if it's what Tadashi would've wanted. Once his words get to him and shows Hiro videos of Tadashi testing Baymax, Hiro realizes Tadashi built Baymax to heal people and shows immediate regret of his previous actions. From this moment forward, Hiro takes his brother's memory at heart, and vows to help citizens and only stop criminals in non-violent ways.
  • Morality Pet: A posthumous one to Karmi. Karmi sympathizes to Hiro over his brother's demise, and admits that she greatly admired Tadashi and his work.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Is definitely attractive, and his clothes have been shown emphasizing his muscles and broad shoulders. Even the series' exaggerated geometric style seem to show those well.
  • Nephewism: He and Hiro were raised by their Aunt Cass after their parents died.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: He's a robotics major, and defintely not unattractive.
  • Nice Guy: His character description here indicates him to be one:
    Tadashi is a good guy. He just is. He actually developed, built and programmed a state-of-the-art nursebot—a Healthcare Companion named Baymax that will likely help millions worldwide. But it's his role as big brother that makes Tadashi truly special. Every kid needs a guy like Tadashi looking out for him, and Hiro knows just how lucky he is to have him in his life.
  • Nice Hat: Has shown to frequently wear a cap with the team logo of the San Fransokyo Ninjas on the front. The back of his cap (and a white T-shirt he frequently wears) has the Ninjas' team symbol.
  • Only Friend: To his younger brother, Hiro, before he introduces Hiro to the rest of the team.
  • Out-of-Character Alert: In "Obake Yashiki", "Tadashi" telling Hiro he doesn't need limits and that he shouldn't waste his time fixing Baymax confirms for Hiro that it's not really his brother.
  • The Paragon: Tadashi will always be there to save his brother, but at the same time wants to point Hiro in the right direction.
  • The Pollyanna: Despite losing his parents at a young age and taking a huge responsibility by being Hiro's father figure, Tadashi is an optimistic individual that doesn't see giving up as an option, and shares this point of view to his younger brother.
  • Posthumous Character: It was stated by the creators during their panel at the 2018 San Diego Comic Con that he would always have a presence in the show. Tadashi died in the movie but still appears in the series in video footages, pictures and such.
    • In "Obake Yashiki," Obake uses a ultra-realistic hologram of Tadashi to trick Hiro.
    • He has a big role in "The Present", which happens during the first Christmas Hiro and Aunt Cass has to spend without him. He appears in flashback and video footage respectively, and is mentioned by a lot of characters.
  • Pretty Boy: He's quite the handsome young man.
  • Promotion to Parent: Downplayed, as he and Hiro are adopted by their Aunt Cass. However, Tadashi acts not only as a Cool Big Bro to Hiro, but also acts as a father figure.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: This scene.
    Baymax: On a scale from one to ten, how would you rate your pain?
    Hiro: Physical? Or Emotional? [glares at Tadashi]
    (Cue puppy dog eyes and frown from Tadashi.)
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The mature, responsible Blue Oni to Hiro's brazen, impulsive Red Oni.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He died after ten minutes of screentime, yet his death is what triggers the main story of the movie.
  • Smart People Build Robots: He created Baymax.
  • Something They Would Never Say: In "Obake Yashiki", Hiro starts to realize the Tadashi he's been talking to is not really his brother when he tells him limits will slow him down and to not focus his energy on continuing his old work.
    Hiro: [backing away from the fake Tadashi] Tadashi would never say those things [...] You are not my brother!
  • So Proud of You: In his own way to Hiro after he got an acceptance letter to San Fransokyo Institute of Technology.
    Tadashi: [to Hiro] Welcome to nerd school, nerd.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: The Straight Man who goes to college and encourages his little brother to do the same, to Hiro's Wise Guy who spends his free time competing in illegal bot-fights.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Tadashi is quite tall, black-haired, and extremely good-looking.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: He also has a sarcastic side.
  • Taught by Experience: When creating Baymax, Tadashi had to go through numerous failures before finally succeeding.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: First he loses his parents and he himself becomes the victim of his own helpful nature (and by some direction, murdered at the hands of the man he idolized). Ironically, San Fransokyo becomes even more sinful following the rise of the supervillains that Big Hero 6 has to face.
  • Vague Age: It doesn't help that the Japanese media calls him 21, while Hiro's San Fransokyo Files say he's 18. The general consensus is that he's somewhere between the two. Tadashi's voice actor Daniel Henney says he's either 19 or 20.
  • Verbal Tic: Often calls Hiro "knucklehead" or "bonehead".

    Aunt Cass 

"Cass"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aunt_cass.png
"For 10 years I have done the best I could to raise you. Have I been perfect? No! Do I know anything about children? No! Should I have picked up a book on parenting? Probably?! Where I was going with this? I had a point..."
Voiced by: Maya Rudolph
Appearances: Big Hero 6 | The Series

Hiro and Tadashi's aunt, who adopted them after their parents died.


  • The Ace: When it comes to cooking competitions, Cass is the unbeatable champion who wins all battles without struggle AND without cheating. She even defeats the supervillain and Evil Chef Momakase.
  • Action Mom: More like "Action Aunt". "Food Fight" shows that Aunt Cass is quite acrobatic. Oh, and she's not afraid to use knives to defend her nephew from harm.
  • Adult Fear: Her sisternote  and brother-in-law die, leaving behind her young nephews who she raises as her own. Then her oldest nephew dies in a fire trying to save his teacher.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Her shipper tendencies around Hiro and Megan embarrasses her nephew.
  • Anger Born of Worry:
    • In the movie, she's introduced being mad against her nephews after being arrested, and worrying about their well-being as well as how she's been raising them over the past 10 years.
    • In "The Bot-Fighter", after Hiro gets arrested, she has to bail him out yet again. She's understandably mad, and grounds Hiro. After Hiro notes he's never seen Aunt Cass that mad in a long time, Baymax notes it's out of concern for him.
  • Badass Driver: Aunt Cass drives away from the buddy guards like a pro.
  • Badasses Wear Bandanas: Wears a yellow bandana in the Food Fight cooking competitions. She quickly showcases to be a badass chef who contrary to her opponents, wins all the duels without cheating once.
  • Battle Trophy: As of "Food Fight", Aunt Cass collects all the knives of the chefs she defeated in the Food Fight competitions.
  • Canon Foreigner: She was made specifically for the film adaptation. Possibly as a stand-in for Hiro's mother, who is not dead in the comics.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: She teaches this to those who try to cheat to win against her in "Food Fight." She ends up taking their knives as a Battle Trophy.
  • Chef of Iron: Becomes a food-fighter in "Food Fight".
  • Collector of the Strange: Has an entire room full of knives that she gained from the chefs she defeated in "Food Fight".
  • Comfort Food: After bailing Hiro and Tadashi out of jail, she starts eating a doughnut, while lampshading it. She also encourages it in Hiro, trying to comfort or reward him with his favorite foods, like hot wings.
  • Cool Aunt: Took in her nephews when they were orphaned and is an eternally loving, supporting figure for both.
  • Cuddle Bug: Is always prone to hugging her nephews. After Tadashi's death, she has a "last hug" tendency, which is giving a second last hug to Hiro before he goes somewhere.
  • Damsel out of Distress: Though the anti-gravity device helped, Cass escaped the net Momakase trapped her in and is the one who neutralized Momakase with the same net by herself.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Food Fight" turns around Aunt Cass participating in the underground cooking competitions, which are also attented by the villain Momakase.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has her moments, the peak of which is in "Aunt Cass Goes Out".
  • Dub Name Change: In the two french versions, Aunt Cass' name is changed to "Tante Cassie" (Aunt Cassie) since "Cass" sounds too anglophone.
  • Dude Magnet: Over the course of the series, she catches the eye of Krei, Mel and Chief Cruz.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Cass' first scene has her hugging her nephews in relief after posting their bail and then angrily pulls their ears for scaring her.
  • Family Eye Resemblance: If you zoom on this screenshot (from the Korean release), you see that Hiro and Tadashi's mother has green eyes, just like Aunt Cass. It showcases that she's Hiro and Tadashi's maternal aunt.
  • Fangirl: Fangirls hard when renowned chef Bolton Gramercy is in her café. Turns out to be a light case of Broken Pedestal when she realizes how big of a Jerkass he is.
  • Genki Girl: A rare adult type, but she is always excited and happy.
  • Good Parents: She's an adoptive parent who's always doing her best to raise Hiro and Tadashi.
  • Hartman Hips: Let's just say that if she were to decide to have children of her own, she would be well equipped for it. Seriously, though, her hips are wider than her shoulders.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Owns a cat named Mochi and her coffee shop is named the "Lucky Cat Café."
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Now that Tadashi passed away, Aunt Cass is the only family Hiro has left.
  • Mama Bear:
    • In the movie, she goes to the police station to bail out Hiro and Tadashi after they get into an illegal bot fight and lectures them for getting themselves in trouble afterwards, being genuinely concerned for their safety, and doing whatever she can to be the best possible motherly figure.
    • In "Food Fight", when Aunt Cass was gonna get Hiro whom she thought was out botfighting, she was ready to use knives in order to protect him and herself from harm. Do not mess with Hiro...
  • Nervous Wreck: Loses all control when worried about her nephews, and she copes with it with food.
  • Nice Girl: Nurturing, loving, caring, amiable, devoted, supportive, and motherly.
  • Oblivious to Love: She doesn't seem to be aware Chief Cruz has a thing for her.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Everyone calls her "Cass", which is a nickname derived from "Cassandra" or "Cassidy".
  • Only One Name: Only known as "Aunt Cass", and no clue of her last name.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Her eldest adoptive son/nephew, Tadashi, dies in a fire at only 18 or 21.
  • Parental Obliviousness: Aunt Cass has no idea of her nephew's superhero whereabouts and she buys most of Hiro's lies, despite the fact he's a terrible liar.
  • Parental Substitute: Becomes one to Hiro and Tadashi after their parents died, then even more so to Hiro after Tadashi dies.
  • Parents as People: Lampshaded. Cass never expected to be a parent, nor did she know anything about being a parent. But she loves both her nephews, and they clearly love her back.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: Implied; Aunt Cass tells Hiro she used to be in the softball team in her college years.
  • The Pollyanna: After Tadashi's death, she maintains her cheerful and optimistic personality for Hiro's sake, even if it's clearly a façade and she obviously misses her nephew.
  • Promotion to Parent: She mentions that she never expected to be a parent, but she has raised Tadashi and Hiro for ten years and always refers to them as her "boys."
  • Shipper on Deck: Introduces Hiro to Megan, the daughter of an old friend of hers, and is trying really hard to make them an item.
  • Single Tear: Sheds one when she comforts Hiro over spending their first Christmas without Tadashi.
  • So Proud of You: Cass always tells Tadashi and Hiro how proud she is of their accomplishments.
  • Stepford Smiler: In the movie, she forces herself to smile in Hiro's presence in order to cheer him up after Tadashi's death, even if it's quite obvious she's suffering herself. It's shown in "The Present" where she cheers up a saddened Hiro over Tadashi's death, and only cries when he isn't looking.
  • Supreme Chef:
    • "Fred's Bro-tillion" had Cass cater for Fred and his family (as Hiro recommended her for the gig); she later gets a stack of orders to cater OTHER events as well.
    • Demonstrated in "Food Fight," where in underground cooking duels she wins strings of matches after defeating her mentor. Given "cheating is encouraged" in said duels her ability to show Cheaters Never Prosper makes her a Chef of Iron. In the duels she wins the knife set of her opponent as a Battle Trophy, and when her mentor asks for his "Nana's knives" back, she showed him her Trophy Room before asking which knives "were his Nana's."
    • Subverted in "Lie Detector", though it's Played for Laughs. Even if Cass is an excellent chef, she improvises a recipe of " acai-salami bowl". It's as disgusting as you might imagine, and Hiro lies about it being good not to hurt Aunt Cass' feelings.
      Aunt Cass: [grimaces after tasting her acai-salami bowl] Ugh! Can't believe Hiro likes this!
  • Sweet Tooth: For pastries, as she has her own café.
  • Trophy Room: In "Food Fight", Cass beat so many chefs in the underground cooking competitions that she has a room dedicated to the knives she gained from them. Bolton, who asked for his Nana's knives back, is shocked, to say the least.
    Aunt Cass: Which one are your Nana's?
  • Worthy Opponent: To Momakase. Though it's inverted as Momakase is determined to annihilate Cass since she thinks she's better than her.

    Mochi 

Mochi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mochi.jpg
Appearances: Big Hero 6 | The Series

The Hamada family's pet calico cat.


  • Action Pet: Mochi looks like your average, sweet, fat cat. But mess with his owner Hiro or Baymax, and you'll regret it. See for yourself as he fights Hibagon Ned and wins!
  • Artistic License – Biology: Mochi has a rather long tail for a Japanese bobtail, who usually have short tails resembling those of rabbits.
  • Animal Gender-Bender: He's a male calico cat.note 
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In "Baymax Dreams Of Mochizilla", Fred accidentally creates a Mochi-kaiju mix that attacks the city inside of Baymax's head.
  • Badass Adorable: Took on Hibagon Ned by himself in "Muira-Horror!" to save Hiro, GoGo, Krei, and Baymax.
  • Berserk Button: Any mentions of going to the vet terrifies Mochi and makes him aggressively meow.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Mochi is the sweetest cat... until you try to attack Hiro and Baymax.
  • Big Fun: He's a fat cat, and a source of funny and heartwarming moments.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Averted in the franchise itself, but Played for Laughs in the chibi short "Mochi No!" where he's cute and sweet one second before viciously pulling out his claws with a devious grin the next one.
  • Brick Joke: Mochi and rocket boots. In the first drafts of the movie, Mochi was supposed to be the Team Pet and have rocket boots as he accompanied Big Hero 6 on missions, before it was eventually dropped from the final project. But many BH6 medias include nods to Mochi with rocket boots:
    • In the final version of the movie, a black cat that resembles Mochi is seen wearing rocket boots the first time Hiro visits the "nerd lab", as a nod to the early movie draft.
    • In the deleted prologue of Hiro and Tadashi's childhood, they put rocket boots on Mochi who finds himself flying accross the café. Many other printed media confirm this as canon as Hiro state they did it as kids or Hiro and Tadashi do it again to Mochi in the present.
    • The rocket boots come back in the "Mochi No!" short as Mochi uses it to escape Wasabi and Fred.
  • Butt-Monkey: This poor cat always finds himself in the craziest situations.
  • Cats Are Mean: Averted. He's a chubby Japanese bobtail cat that likes to snuggle, and is one of the nicest Disney cats to date.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: Look at Silent Snarker below.
  • Cats Hate Water: In his short with Baymax, Mochi yowls and flails whenever the robot tries to clean him in the sink.
  • Cat Up a Tree: The premise of the "Save Mochi" Big Chibi 6 short.
  • Cool Cat: Already a nice, cuddly cat, he becomes even cooler after becoming "Slow Clap Cat". And then he beats up Hibagon Ned by himself in "Muira-Horror!".
  • Cool Pet: A Badass Adorable kitty who's beloved by his owner, her clientele and all of San Fransokyo who knows him as "Slow Clap Cat".
  • Cone of Shame: Has to wear one after his visit to the vet in "Trading Chips". He's far to be amused by this.
  • Cuddle Bug: He likes attention and being scooped in and petted, most of the time by Baymax, who dubs him "Hairy Baby".
  • Curious as a Monkey: Mochi is a curious cat, and his instinct to explore often puts him in trouble.
  • Cute Kitten: He may not be a kitten, but no one can resist Mochi's cuteness.
  • Distressed Dude:
    • Gets kidnapped by Mr. Sparkles and threatened to be blasted to space after his "Slow Clap Cat" video got more popular than his show.
    • In "Trading Chips", he gets stuck inside a vent in the abandoned warehouse, and sprained one of his paws; it's up to Baymax (in Mini-Max's body) to help him.
  • Death Glare: A Freeze-Frame Bonus, but Mochi gives a hilarious one to Hiro after he threw him up the stairs.
  • Evil-Detecting Cat: More of a "Jerkass-Detecting Cat"; when Krei goes to take Aunt Cass out on a date, he hisses at him.
  • Fluffy Dry Cat: In "Food Fight", Baymax pets Mochi at one point and the static causes his hair to brissle.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: Mochi can briefly be seeing playing with a laser-pointer during Hiro's Hard-Work Montage.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Played for Laughs when Cass adopts a Mayoi and gives it more attention than to Mochi. Bonus points for Mochi actually having green eyes.
  • The Internet Is for Cats: Becomes a meme after Honey Lemon's video of him "slow clapping" becomes viral.
  • Mascot: He is the eponymous Lucky Cat of Aunt Cass' café.
  • Meaningful Name: He is named after a Japanese rice cake, kinda fitting as he looks like he's had too much cake.
  • Mega Neko: In the "Baymax Dreams Of Mochizilla" short, Mochi stars as the titular Mochizilla, a giant kaiju cat who acts à la King Kong.
  • Me's a Crowd: In the chibi short "Mochi No!", Mochi manages to walk into some sort of cloning device offscreen which clones tons of Mochis (who goes out in smoke when touched) and now Wasabi and Fred must try to catch the real one.
  • Nice Guy: A sweet, docile and affectionate cat that loves being anywhere he can get attention.
  • Papa Wolf: Protects both his owner Hiro and Baymax from Ned Ludd in Hibagon form by jumping on his face and clawing him.
  • Rocket Boots: Often associated with Mochi. See Brick Joke above.
  • Scary Teeth: In the "Baymax Dreams Of Mochizilla" short, where Mochi has saber teeth to make him more menacing.
  • Silent Snarker: Just look at his face as he watches Hiro and Aunt Cass switching roles after Aunt Cass sneaks out in "Food Fight".
  • Team Pet: The series seems to be treating him as this to the heroes, seeing as he got a short all to himself. And then there's him beating Hibagon Ned by himself.
  • That Poor Cat: He gets tossed up the stairs by Hiro when he's trying to hide Baymax from Aunt Cass. He turns out to be okay but is not happy with Hiro and runs away howling when he approaches.
  • Tropey, Come Home: Mochi has the tendency to wander off from home more than once in the series and it's up to the team to bring him back before Aunt Cass realizes.

Click here  to see her mutant form

Voiced by: Haley Tju
Appearances: The Series (debut: "Issue 188")

The second-youngest student attending San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, right after Hiro. She's a biotechnology major who specializes in the study of virology and bacteriology.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: Downplayed. While she's not hideous or stalker-ish, Karmi's crush on "Captain Cutie" makes Hiro extremely uncomfortable (justified, since she hates his real identity). It's entirely Played for Laughs in the "Love Letters" chibi short, though.
  • Action Survivor:
    • She's the usual Damsel in Distress, though she shows herself to be quite able to fend for herself in "Big Problem" where she takes down Orso Knox by herself. Season 2 also has her in the middle of the action.
    • In "Big Chibi 6", she's shown to have gained a good amount of programming knowledge, using what Hiro taught her to make a gauntlet capable of shooting out hardlight hearts.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Her ethnicity has not been explicitly expressed in the show yet. Considering the Big Hero 6 franchise's tradition to have Actor-Shared Backgrounds, it's plausible she might be partially based off of her voice actress, who is part-Indonesian and part-Chinese. During Asian American Heritage Month, Disney featured Karmi in its Asian-American characters, indicating by her olive complexion she most probably has South Asian-American heritage.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: Karmi was turned into a mutant by Di after the latter didn't need her anymore to cure the real Liv.
  • Alliterative Name: The name of her fictional superhero persona, Lab Lady.
  • Alone with the Psycho: Poor Karmi only realizes too late that her so-called "BFF" Liv Amara, whom she is working for at her company, is a sociopath who mutates people behind closed doors in said company. And sure enough, that leads her to her being mutated as well.
  • Always Second Best: The reason why she's jealous of Hiro is because he stole her "thing", which was being the youngest genius at SFIT before his arrival. It obviously implies she feels threatened by his genius and potential.
  • Ascended Extra: She was a recurring character in Season 1, with only 3 episodes where she was in the center of the story (most of the time, not related to the Obake arc). In Season 2, Karmi is more prominent due to unknowingly working for the main antagonist and helps the team against the monsters Liv creates.
  • Ascended Fangirl:
    • She got to be rescued by "Captain Cutie" and meet him several times.
    • Her ideas from her fanfiction (Gogo vertically skating, Honey and Fred making an ice shower, Baymax's overdrive mode) are actually used by the team.
    • She idolizes Liv Amara, and got to know her personally and intern at her company Sycorax. Unfortunately for Karmi, it's exploited by Liv.
  • Ascended Fanon: In-Universe, the team actually finds that the tricks that she suggested in her fanfiction of them work pretty well, like GoGo skating vertically up walls and Honey Lemon and Fred creating ice showers. Hiro also upgrades Baymax with his own "Overdrive Mode."
  • Asian and Nerdy: She's of South Asian descent and a Teen Genius.
  • Asian Rudeness: When meeting Hiro, she tends to treat his naivety with a condescending attitude of disdainful scorn, and teases him out of spite and enjoying seeing him humiliated, currently unaware that Hiro and "Captain Cutie" are the same person. The rivalry continues as Karmi and Hiro become Liv Amara's and Alistair Krei's respective interns. Slowly subverted as part of her Character Development.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other:
    • Despite the differences she has with Hiro, she shows genuine concern over his health. The first time is seen when Hiro chokes on food in "Baymax and Hiro", and the second time in "Prey Date" after Hiro is "kidnapped" by Orso Knox. Finally in "City of Monsters", Hiro and Karmi put their differences aside to work on her project together, and it ultimately culminates in Hiro telling a transformed Karmi that he's her friend, and that he cares about her.
    • This comes to a head in "Big Chibi 6", when she tells Hiro (as Captain Cutie) that she's not in love with him and that she likes someone else now...that someone else being Hiro.
  • Back for the Finale: As a cameo, but she does appear in the final episode of Season 2.
  • Badass Adorable: She's a smart and cute Action Survivor, who Took a Level in Badass in Season 3 and used her technology to defeat a supervillain and his army of hard light lackeys by herself.
  • Badass Bystander:
    • In "Big Problem", Karmi's latest invention, which caught the eye of Liv Amara (much to Hiro's dismay) becomes instrumental in taking down Orso Knox. What makes her more badass is the fact that she put them on herself.
    • Comes back in "Big Chibi 6", where Karmi uses a gauntlet to hack Hardlight's chibis of Captaun Cutie and make them serve her instead, where she orders them to get him and his gauntlet, leading to his defeat.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Is eventually turned into a monster by Liv Amara's clone Di in "City Of Monsters," and is forced to attack Hiro. Luckily, she gets turned back to a human by the real Liv by the end of the episode.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Double-Subverted. Even if Hiro starts out by being nice to Karmi (because that's just how he is), she has none of it and starts their rivalry because she's convinced Hiro is a smug Bitch in Sheep's Clothing. But thanks to Character Development, Karmi realizes Hiro is genuinely nice when they put their differences aside and work together to find a cure for the parasynths. That along with Hiro saving her life by reminding her who she really is when she's mutated makes Karmi develop on a crush on Hiro... THE REGULAR Hiro.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Hiro (when he's not in superhero gear).
  • Beneath the Mask: Underneath her quick temper and stinginess, actually hides a kind-hearted, passionate girl who always chooses the right thing to do.
  • Berserk Button: Killing her viruses. She's very attached to them.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Saves Liv Amara right before she can get attacked by Orso Knox by applying her nano-receptor stickers.
    • In "Big Chibi 6", Karmi is the one to save the day by using a high-tech glove to hack Hardlight's chibis back to Captain Cutie's original characterization and have his own inventions beat him.
  • Birds of a Feather: Seems to get along pretty well with Honey Lemon, since the two of them are science-loving Genki Girls. Honey Lemon even refer to her and Karmi as "bio-besties".
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She's very sweet and polite in front of Granville, but turns on a dime the moment she is left alone with Hiro. Hiro realizes that Granville knew about the false niceties already, and that Karmi was the person that needed to learn to socialize. By "Failure Mode" she seems to have dropped this by how she openly insults Hiro and films humiliating videos of him in front of Granville.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Her fanfiction superhero alter-ego, Lab Lady, is all dressed in blue.
  • Bound and Gagged: In "Fan-Friction", Karmi gets kidnapped by Momakase and taken to Akuma Island, and Hiro finds her tied on a chair and her mouth gagged with a rag.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: After Di mutates her in "City of Monsters", Karmi goes wild and kidnaps Hiro, with the intention of bringing him to Di. She luckily gains back control through a "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight with Hiro.
  • Brainy Brunette: Has brown hair and was the youngest teen genius in the history of SFIT to attend the school before Hiro came along.
  • The Bus Came Back: After being gone for the second half of Season 2, Karmi finally comes back in the show (officially, after her silent cameo from the S2 finale) in the episode "Big Chibi 6" in Season 3. It's revealed during her departure that she made a fan-made cartoon series for her fanfiction called Big Chibi 6 that became popular and comes back to San Fransokyo for an autograph session where she reunites with Hiro again.
  • Butt-Monkey: A mild example - something frustrating always seems to happen to her every time she appears (having a beloved virus die, having embarrassing snapshots taken of her, getting tricked into being locked out of a seminar, being the accidental victim of Hiro's new super-strength twice, getting kidnapped by Momakase, etc.) The end of "Fan Friction" and all of "Big Problem" gives her a break, though.
  • The Cameo: After the "City of Monsters" arc, where Karmi stops appearing due to being Put on a Bus, she appears in a picture on Megan's theory wall. She then has her first physical appearance since the mid-season finale in "Legacies", where she smiles at Hiro giving his speech at the graduation ceremony about Tadashi's degree.
  • Camera Fiend: Takes a lot of pictures of Hiro in superhero gear, as well as embarassing ones of his real identity.
  • Character Development: Karmi's development that occurs late in Season 1 and even more in Season 2 is about her learning to open up more to people and be less aloof and hostile, particularly in regards to Hiro whom she finally befriends in "City of Monsters".
  • Character Narrator: She narrates her own fanfiction in "Fan-Friction" and "Write Turn Here".
  • Chekhov's Gun: Her electric rose project from "Countdown To Catastrophe" comes in handy in "City of Monsters" in order to cure the real Liv.
  • Child Prodigy: If she's a Teen Genius like Hiro, it's implied that like him, her genius was discovered at a young age as well.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Downplayed. Karmi is rather down to earth, but still baby-talks to her viruses and says they're her friends. She is quick to be angered if anyone (Hiro, in that case) questions about the "weirdness" of it.
  • Companion Cube: Karmi talks to her viruses, puts cute stickers on their petri dishes and considers them her friends. "City of Monsters" shows she has a plush chicken pox virus toy that she cherishes like a teddy bear.
  • Crush Blush: Blushes when Hiro as "Captain Cutie" holds her hand in "Fan-Friction".
  • Crush Filter: Karmi's doodles in her notebook as well as the beginning of "Fan-Friction" showcases that she sees her beloved "Captain Cutie" as a bulky Tall, Dark, and Handsome Bishōnen straight out of a shojo manga. Ironically, Hiro, the ACTUAL identity of "Captain Cutie" is smaller than she is.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: She at first receives one from Chris while the two fight as mutants, but later the table turns for her when the real Liv deactivates his chip and he's turn back into his normal human appearance and she inflicts a brutal one right back at him, though off-screen.
  • Damsel in Distress: Just like Marys Iosama before her.
    • In "Issue 188", she almost gets crushed by a falling lamppost. Hiro saves her just in time.
    • Momakase kidnaps her in "Fan-Friction" to lure Hiro and the team into a trap.
    • By "Big Problem" and "Prey Date", Karmi seems to have grown out of this trope by being thrown in the middle of the action.
    • Played straight again in "City of Monsters" where Karmi gets mutated by Liv Amara's clone Di and uses her as a way to capture Hiro. Then Di blackmails the latter into helping her cure the real Liv by putting Karmi's life on the line, and later has her almost EAT Hiro before he luckily snaps her out of it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has her moments. Mostly reserved at Hiro.
    Hiro: [about the Mayoi] Liv created these things, and even if they look cute, they're monsters!
    [Karmi looks at a Mayoi affectionately licking a student's face]
    Karmi: Yeah. I'm terrified.
  • Death Glare: She gives one to Hiro in "Prey Date" after Fred drops all the petri dishes containing her viruses, thus killing them.
  • Decomposite Character: Seems to be based of Marys Iosama from the comics, who was a teen genius Hiro's age. Though Karmi is a tad older than Hiro, a Tsundere and Marys's Nice Girl personality and friendliness have been given to Megan.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen:
    • She starts showing this a little following Hiro covering for her in Granville’s office. Emphasis on "little" as she quickly shushes Hiro in getting a notification on his secret hero identity.
    • Shown again in "Baymax and Hiro" when she appears to show concern when Hiro choked while Baymax was feeding him in his overpowered mode. Immediately after taking her phone out and recording a video out of amusement.
    • "Prey Date" has a moment where she genuinely worries about Hiro's health when he gets kidnapped by Orso Knox, and later in the cafe when she's alone with Hiro.
    • "City of Monsters" has her and Hiro finally fully start to warm up to each other, after working on the cure for the Parasynths together. They go from snarking insults to giving unambiguous compliments and bonding, including Karmi giving Hiro warm words about Tadashi, as well as a hug after Hiro's test on the Microbots worked.
  • Determinator:
    • Despite Liv refusing and Orso Knox being loose into Sycorax, nothing stops Karmi from trying to find a cure for him.
    • In "City of Monsters", when Karmi is mutated, she protects Hiro from Chris, and does not stop fighting him despite Chris clearly having the upper hand. She was ready to fight until she couldn't for Hiro.
  • The Dog Bites Back: During her fight with Chris, Monster Karmi was easily overpowered due to Chris being more skilled and strong than she was. The instant the real Liv deactivates his chip and he turns back to normal, Karmi, still in monster form, beats Chris to a pulp for both attacking her and wanting to harm Hiro.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Karmi realizes Hiro was right about Liv since she implanted her with a mutation chip off-screen.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Even if she loves to see Hiro humilated and to insult him as part of their rivalry, when Hiro is shown to be in some sort of danger, Karmi becomes instantly worried for his safety, showcasing that even if they don't get along, she doesn't want anything bad happen to him and she does care about him in some way.
  • Extreme Doormat: When it comes to Liv, who manipulates her for her own gains. Hiro is aware of this and also uses this to his advantage to get infos on Orso Knox.
  • Failed a Spot Check: She can't seem to see the resemblance between Hiro and her beloved Captain Cutie, who are in fact the same person, despite the fact she took a picture of Hiro in his hero armor up close.
  • Fangirl: To Big Hero 6, especially "Captain Cutie". Also of Liv Amara.
  • Fighting from the Inside: Hiro begs a mutated Karmi to remember who she is and that he cares about her. Di keeps ordering Karmi to kill Hiro via her phone, and we see Karmi grab her head and growl, fighting for control of her body. She wins, as no matter how many times Di orders to kill on her phone, she has now gotten rid of Di's control and now protects Hiro from further threats like Chris.
  • Flower Motif: Hers appears to be the rose. Not only is her electricity powered rose her best invention, the rose is symbolic to Karmi's character: she's passionate and devoted (towards her her work), loving (towards Captain Cutie), and underneath her thorns, hides a truly beautiful heart.
  • Foil: Her interest in germs and pathogens — which can hurt people — contrasts with Hiro, Tadashi, and Baymax's focus on healthcare and rescuing people.
  • Forced into Evil: Diane, Liv Amara's clone, implants a mutation chip into her neck and turns her into a monster, forcing her to kidnap Hiro and bring the nanobots to her.
  • Friendless Background: According to Gogo, Karmi (though certainly very intelligent and a good student) doesn't really have any friends (other than her viruses, of whom Karmi's very proud of) and, up until Hiro came along, pretty much the only thing she had going for her was the fact that she was the youngest student in the history of SFIT. And at the end of her debut episode, it turns out that Granville's actually fully aware that Karmi's not as nice as she likes to make people think she is and that the reason she wanted Hiro and Karmi to hang out together was for Karmi's sake and not Hiro's.
  • Genki Girl: When excited about something she has a passion for (like Big Hero 6 or anyting bio-tech related), Karmi has a sparkle in her eye and acts like a little kid on Christmas day, which makes her more endearing.
  • Giver of Lame Names: While one or two of the codenames she gives the Big Hero 6 members in her fanfiction aren't that bad, like Gogo's "Speed Queen", Honey Lemon and Hiro are "Tall Girl" and "Captain Cutie", respectively.
  • Grade Skipper: Implied. She's a Teen Genius like Hiro, and attends SFIT at 16 years of age. Hiro said he skipped a couple of grades, so Karmi must've done so as well.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She's jealous of Hiro for stealing her place as the youngest genius in history to attend SFIT. Ironically, Hiro is also jealous her and her internship at Sycorax.
  • Grin of Audacity: Gives plenty of those to Hardlight and his evil chibis as she uses her Power Fist in "Big Chibi 6".
  • Hackette: Shows herself to be one in "Big Chibi 6" where she uses a gauntlet to hack Hardlight's chibis of Captain Cutie and reprograms them to be benevolent and turn against their creator. She is a pro when it comes to viruses, after all.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: When Hiro is around, anyway. She grows out of it thanks to Character Development.
  • Hard Light: Uses Hardlight's own technology against him by sending hard light heart symbols with a computer virus that changes his chibi's moralities to good, and uses them to defeat him and save Big Hero 6.
  • Hates Being Touched: Implied; Karmi says to Honey that she's not much of a hugger and seemed shocked to be hugged by Honey. In "City of Monsters", when Hiro sees Liv/Di implanted a chip in her neck and tried to get if off, Karmi's first reflex is to immediately shove him away from her. On the other hand, she has no problem hugging Captain Cutie at the end of "Fan Friction".
  • Hates My Secret Identity: Karmi's in love with superhero Hiro, but really despises Hiro Hamada the student. Averted by "City of Monters" when Hiro and her become friends (and still loves Captain Cutie).
  • Hazmat Suit: She wears one while working with the most dangerous of her viruses.
  • Heroic Willpower: After Hiro gives her an I Know Youre In There Somewhere talk when she's in monster form, she manages to get back to her senses, and was the only mutant that managed to slip away from Di's control. All thanks to The Power of Friendship.
  • Hidden Depths: "Issue 188" shows that Karmi has some artistic ability sketching Hiro in his superhero form in one of her notebooks. Additionally, while her lyrics need work, "Small Hiro One" shows that Karmi actually has some singing skills and can play the ukulele pretty well.
  • Hot-Blooded: Extremely excited over virology and biotech, and Hiro discovers it's better not to go between her and her work.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Not only does she think Hiro is only up to annoy her and steal her spotlight as the youngest genius on campus, she has no idea her so called "BFF" Liv Amara is a manipulative sociopath, and even less that she's actually an evil clone of her idol.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    • In "Prey Date", after Orso Knox's containment unit changes from "secured" to "disabled":
      Baymax: Oh, no.
      Karmi: Do not "Oh, no"! I don't want to hear any "Oh, no-ing" from you!
      Hiro: Uh, Karmi?
      Karmi: [faintly, after she sees Orso Knox has broken out] Oh, no.
      • After the team has brought Orso Knox back:
        Hiro: So, Karmi, did your serum work?
        Karmi: Yes, but it's not my serum; at Sycorax, we don't like words like "my" or "me". The breakthrough was a team effort... based almost completely on my work.
    • Karmi states that she's not a hugger to Honey in "Nega-Globby". But in "Fan-Friction" she jumps at Hiro to hug him.
  • Iconic Item: No matter if she's working in her lab, attending a prestigious gala or mutated, Karmi is never seen without her red and yellow bracelets.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Hiro pulls one on her when she's about to kill him in mutant form. It works, as Karmi now regained control of her mind and protects Hiro from Chris.
  • Insufferable Genius: Downplayed. Karmi is more of a Jerk with a Heart of Gold and while she's hyper-competent in her scientific field, the "insufferable" part is mostly reserved at Hiro's expense. It's also implied that just like Hiro, it's out of insecurity.
  • Invisible Parents: Not much is known about Karmi's family life. "City of Monsters" reveals that she has both her parents, and they live out of the city. Though they have yet to appear, they seem to be good parents as they had her move out of the city for her safety after everything Diane Amara put her through.
  • Jerkass to One: She's mainly cold and smug towards Hiro, as part being The Rival. Thankfully grows out of it thanks to Character Development.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While she's harsh towards Hiro, she has a high sense of morals and shows that she actually cares about him even if she doesn't want to admit it. She's also pretty friendly with Honey Lemon and simply socially-awkward with people she's not familiar with. In "Prey Date", Karmi is determined to save Orso Knox because she wants to prove herself — and because he is still human in need of help.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: When she's turned into a monster, Karmi beats the living crap out of Chris, who was de-powered and her still mutated. Not only is he the Big Bad's faithful and cruel minion, it's good to know he also previously beat her, threw her around and tried to "finish the job" on Hiro (in other words, kill him on Di's orders). He totally had it coming.
  • Labcoat of Science and Medicine: Wears a white lab coat in her first appearance and during her internship at Sycorax.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In "Small Hiro One," she mocks Hiro for not being able to get into SFIT due to his age, but is the first of the students to get kicked out by Trengrove.
  • Little Miss Badass: She's 16 year old and pulled a Big Damn Heroes on Big Hero 6 in Season 3 with her newfound knowledge of programming, where she defeats Hardlight and his chibi armies all by herself.
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: Has a long ponytail that ends at her bottom of her back.
  • Loves My Alter Ego: She seemingly has no idea that Hiro is Big Hero 6's "Captain Cutie", who she is in love with.
  • Magic Pants: When Karmi mutates, her shirt rips at the bottom and in the back, but still covers her chest and shoulders (leaving her belly exposed). As for her leggings, they only rip at calf level. As for her skirt, it only gets a few rips on the edges.
  • Meaningful Name: "Karmi" is derived from the name "Carmen", which can mean "garden" or "orchard". Karmi studies in biotechnology, which includes all forms of biology and in that case, botany. Sure enough, one of Karmi's breakthrough inventions is an electricity powered rose.
  • Most Fanfic Writers Are Girls: Writes fanfiction about the team.
  • Motor Mouth: In "Big Problem" when she learns Liv Amara is coming to SFIT.
    Karmi: [fast-paced] I saw Liv Amara's helicopter land, and I had to come and meet her! She is my hero, I love her! Is she here?!
    Baymax: You should breathe, now.
  • Ms. Imagination: Her Big Hero 6 fanfictions are extremely creative and detailed. So much that it actually inspires Big Hero 6 in real life.
  • Naïve Everygirl: Despite being a genius, Karmi is shown to be quite naive. Not only there's the fact she's unaware Hiro and "Captain Cutie" are the same person, she also believed Trengrove right away she had the right to a free ice cream while he was actually kicking her out of his workshop. Also, there's her not believing for a second Liv is behind the monsters and being played like a fiddle by the latter.
  • Nerves of Steel: After she Took a Level in Badass. In her return in the episode "Big Chibi 6", she's not intimated by Hardlight and his chibis in the slightest, being defiant when she talks to him. Considering all the trauma she's been though before (being kidnapped by Momakase and mutated by Di, there's nothing left to surprise Karmi anymore.
  • Nice Girl: After much needed Character Development, she becomes this.
  • The Nicknamer: She gave BH6 some nicknames people who read her fanfiction seems to use as well: Captain Cutie for Hiro, Red Panda for Baymax, Speed Queen for GoGo, Chop-Chop for Wasabi, Tall Girl for Honey Lemon and Flame Jumper for Fred.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She's studying virology and bacteriology, and seems really attached to them.
  • No Social Skills: Karmi is anti-social, and has never had real friends before.
  • Not So Different: As Baymax notes at one point, Karmi's essentially what Hiro would be like if he didn't have his friends (and replaced robotics with virology). Karmi denies this, but she probably knows it's true and is too proud to admit it.
  • Off Screen Moment Of Awesome: The scene of her beating up Chris is not shown (only heard), but you can't help but cheer for her as it happens.
  • Only One Name: Her last name is unknown, so she's solely known and credited as "Karmi". Even on her chip at Sycorax, only her first name is written.
  • Painful Transformation: In "City of Monsters", Liv/Di implants a mutation chip into Karmi. Contrary to the other characters' mutations, who were gradual, Karmi's is instantaneous and she wails in pain the whole time.
  • Pet the Dog: She finally befriends Hiro in "City of Monsters", after complimenting his invention and sympathizing with Hiro over Tadashi's death.
  • Playing with Syringes: Her fictional alter-ego Lab Lady has syringes as weapons.
  • Plucky Girl: When Liv gives her the task to find a cure for parasynths, Karmi is excited and determined to learn robotics for the cure she found... even if it's far from being her cup of tea.
  • Power Fist: She built a gauntlet in "Big Chibi 6" that allows her to hack Hardlight's chibis with a virus that makes them go through a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Projectile Kiss: How she ends up defeating Hardlight's chibis of Captain Cutie: with her high-tech gauntlet, she blows hard light projectiles in the shape of hearts that contains a virus which causes a reprogrammation and thus a Heel–Face Turn in them.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Wears an orange skirt over black leggings as her everyday outfit.
  • Put on a Bus: After the whole Sycorax and monsters ordeal, Reality Ensues and her parents decide to make her quit San Fransokyo for her safety. The end of the episode has Karmi writing her newest fanfiction and having To Be Continued at the bottom, foreshadowing that it's no the last we see of her. Sure enough, Karmi returns in Season 3's "Big Chibi 6" episode.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her ponytail ends at her waist. Which means if it was to be loose, it'd be even longer.
  • The Rival: To Hiro, as she feels envious that he stole her position of being the youngest student in the history of the school. Hiro isn't interested in a rivalry and would rather they be friends at the very least, but as of "Failure Mode", he starts playing back into the rivalry and it continues even into Season 2.
  • Serious Business: Her work with viruses. It's not a good idea to disturb her while she works...
  • Ship Tease: With Hiro, when he's both in and out of his armor. In "Big Chibi 6", it's no longer "in the armor"; Karmi tells Captain Cutie in "Big Chibi 6" that she's no longer in love with him and likes someone else now...still not knowing that they're one of the same.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: Is barely a few inches taller than Hiro, but smaller than GoGo, and is the second youngest teen genius at SFIT after Hiro.
  • Shrinking Violet: Despite the overconfidence she has about her genius, she has moments of shyness and vulnerability, like when she enters Liv Amara's office and shyly asks to help cure Orso Knox.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: After her Character Development and everything they've been through together, Karmi realizes she's in love with sweet Nice Guy Hiro (his real identity).
  • Slipknot Ponytail: In "City of Monsters", when Karmi turns into a monster, her hair grows even longer and her elastic snaps, letting her hair wild and loose from the ponytail as she kidnaps Hiro.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Was head over heels for Big Hero 6's leader whom she calls "Captain Cutie". She drew him in her notebooks and wrote a bunch of self-insert fanfiction about their love. Unbeknownst to her, he's actually her rival Hiro Hamada who she hated early in the show. As of "Big Chibi 6", she's no longer in love with him, but instead has feelings for Hiro.
  • Snark-to-Snark Combat: With Hiro, whenever they are in the same room. Since he gives increasingly lame comebacks as he gets too worked up, she usually wins.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Averted in the series, but Played for Laughs in the chibi short "Love Letters".
  • Status Quo Is God: Thankfully for Karmi, in "City of Monsters", the real Liv Amara cancels her mutation and turns her back into a human once she realizes what horrid actions Di committed to cure her.
  • Stepford Smiler: Her cheerful appearance around Professor Granville is a façade for her feelings at being displaced as the youngest student when Hiro enrolled at San Fransokyo Tech.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: At first, Karmi is aloof, anti-social and harsh towards Hiro, but as the series goes on, she shows she has a good heart and her real colors shows a girl passionate about science and can be friendly when she wants to (as shown with Liv Amara and Honey Lemon).
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Her eyes turn a gold yellow when mutated.
  • Teacher's Pet: Professor Granville is the most nice to her compared to other students. Proof is, Professor Granville lets Karmi call her "Professor G", instead of everyone else who has to call her "Professor Granville". Karmi also acts friendly to Hiro only when Granville is around, in order to be seen as an angel by the latter (though only in Issue 188).
  • Teen Genius: Karmi was previously the youngest person ever accepted into SFIT until Hiro came along.
  • Teens Are Short: Is not that taller than Hiro, who is 5'0".
  • Terrified of Germs: Ironically, despite — or perhaps because of — her obsessive devotion to germs and viruses, she is hyper-conscious of the slightest possibility of getting sick, and she runs away the moment Hiro so much as sniffs in her presence. It's also worth noting that while she's somewhat reckless in her growth and containment of deadly viruses, she does her serious work while wearing a full Hazmat Suit.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Inverted. Karmi wears her hair in a ponytail but is more of a Girly Girl.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the first two seasons, Karmi was the resident Damsel in Distress and "City of Monsters" had her mutated by the Big Bad and used as bait against her will. Comes Season 3, Karmi isn't the most remotely intimidated by Hardlight, and is even the one to defeat him, thanks to the programming she learned from Hiro, where she uses a gauntlet to defeat Hardlight's chibis.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Karmi gradually warms up to Hiro during Season 2. Comes Season 3, she's a full-on Nice Girl and their previous bad experiences together (thanks to Di Amara) had Karmi develop a crush on Hiro.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: A variant in "Big Problem". After Karmi puts a bunch of her tranquilizer stickers on Knox, he faints. But when he starts regaining consciousness soon after, she frantically puts on several more to make sure he stays asleep.
  • Trauma Conga Line: "City of Monsters" was not kind on Karmi. She finally realizes how evil Liv (actually Liv's clone Di) actually is despite Hiro's protests, and Liv attacks her and implants a chip off-screen. She then runs away to SFIT, terrified, and warns Hiro. Then she turns into a mutant and is forced to kidnap and attack her new friend. And once it's all over, her parents make her quit SFIT for her safety, and she and Hiro didn't get to say goodbye. Since she's been Put on a Bus we don't see how she copes with it, but it must be a lot.
  • Tricked-Out Gloves: Thanks to what she learned from Hiro's robotic skills, Karmi defeats Hardlight and his chibis by programming a glove that reprograms his Captain Cutie chibis and uses them to beat Hardlight at his own game.
  • True Blue Femininity: Wears a blue dress for Liv Amara's celebratory gala in "Big Problem".
  • Tsundere: The "tsun" side is shown around Hiro, while the "dere" side is shown around his heroic alter-ego, although it occasionally shows around Hiro as well, especially in Season 2 where she is constantly on the defensive about the notion that she and Hiro are friends or could become friends.
  • Twitchy Eye: Played for Laughs in her debut episode where she pretends to be nice to Hiro in front of Granville.
  • The Un-Smile: In "Issue 188" when she pretends to be friendly with Hiro in front of Granville, Karmi has a large forced grin on her face.
  • Unstoppable Rage: After being mutated by Di, Karmi is extremely violent and basically a new pet of Di that does whatever she wants her to. And when she finally breaks away from Di's control, she gets EVEN ANGRIER when Chris was gonna harm Hiro, which made Karmi ruthlessly attack him to protect her friend.
  • Unwitting Pawn: She got an internship at Sycorax after being approached by big shot CEO Liv Amara. Unfortunately for Karmi, she has no idea she's actually working for a monster factory under the iron fist of an Evilutionary Biologist, and that her so called "BFF" Liv is actually an evil clone who pretends to be her friend in order to manipulate her better into doing what she wants. Sure enough, once Liv doesn't need Karmi's expertise anymore, she turns her into a monster via a painful mutation and forces her to kidnap and attack Hiro.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: While Karmi is not technically Hiro's girlfriend, when she was mutated and Chris tried to attack Hiro on Di's orders, she snapped, tossed Hiro aside to keep him safe and started brutally attacking Chris, with the intention of protecting Hiro from him. No matter how many times Chris beat her, she kept going. When the real Liv turned Chris back to normal, Karmi, who was still mutated and had all of her conscious thoughts, beat Chris up unconscious. Yeah, Karmi grew to really care about Hiro, so don't hurt him if you know what's good for you.
  • Wham Shot: In "City of Monsters" when Karmi's profile appears on Liv/Di's phone and a bio-chip activates in her neck, triggering a painful mutation into a beast.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Zigzagged. Karmi says that Hiro is the pathetic one for having Baymax as a friend, citing that at least her viruses are actually alive.
  • What You Are in the Dark: When she and Hiro are locked in Sub-Level 9 with a feral Orso Knox, Karmi doesn't even want to think about running away. She installs herself in a lab and tries to work on a cure. She's still determined to help even if Liv says otherwise, and shows concern over Hiro after he gets taken away by Orso Knox.
  • Women Prefer Strong Men: See Crush Filter. She sees "Captain Cutie" as Rated M for Manly, is head over heels for him and fantasizes about being rescued by the latter. Although on a side note, "City of Monsters" and "Legacies" hint that she may have fallen for regular Hiro as well.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy:
    • She thinks Hiro is crushing on her solely because he's being polite and wants them to work on their project.
    • She also thinks Hiro is bragging about stealing her spotlight of the youngest teen genius on campus, but it couldn't be more far away from the truth.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: When she finally finds a friendship in Hiro, Liv/Di reveals her true colors and mutates her into a monster and brainwashes her into kidnapping and attacking Hiro. And just to twist the knife, the aftermath of her trauma causes her parents to make her move out of the city for her safety without giving her the time to say goodbye to Hiro first.
  • Young Entrepreneur: She wrote, produced, drew, animated and voiced all the characters of her own online chibi series about Big Hero 6's adventures based off her fanfiction, called "Big Chibi 6", which has gone viral.

    Megan Cruz 

Megan Amelia Isabella Cruz

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bh6_megan_cruz.PNG
"Super Sleuth Megan Cruz managed to get security footage of Big Hero 6!"

Voiced by: Isabella Gómez
Appearances: The Series (debut: "Something's Fishy")

The 14 year-old daughter of an old friend of Aunt Cass. She becomes Hiro's friend after the latter introduces them to each other.


  • Accidental Misnaming: She doesn't know how Momakase is named, referring to her falsely as "Mommy Crazy".
  • Amateur Sleuth: She's The Everyman and an Intrepid Reporter who leads her own quest and piles her own clues to discover Big Hero 6's real identities. It's even lampshaded, as she calls herself "Super Sleuth Megan Cruz".
  • Big Damn Heroes: She saves her father right before he can get injured by a Buddy Guardian in "Legacies".
  • Brainy Brunette: Even if she's not a genius like the rest of the cast, Megan isn't unintelligent, as she's observant, piles many clues despite key witnesses refusing to cooperate and is in a foreign languages class.
  • Butt-Monkey: Things never seem to go her way when she tries to discover the team's identities, from getting her memory card stolen by Fred to people refusing to help her, and when she does learn it, Megan is treated as The Load and trapped inside one of Honey Lemon's chem bunnies.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: In "Legacies", she finally calls her father out on his petty childish behavior towards superheroes and orders him to free the gang who got arrested.
  • Camera Fiend: Comes with being in photography club and her school's journal. Even then, she takes pictures of about anything she finds interesting.
  • Contrasting Replacement Character: She only appears in one episode in the "City of Monsters" arc before she has a more prominent role in the "Fugitives" arc, and soon enough, after Karmi (who was prominent in the first arc) gets Put on a Bus in the mid-season finale, Megan gains more appearance as "Hiro's side female lead". However, while Karmi was a Defrosting Ice Queen and The Rival, Megan and Hiro hit off right away. See Foil for more details.
  • Curious as a Monkey: Megan is curious in nature, as when she is invested into a topic for her journal, she stops at nothing to know all the details possible, as seen with her obsession in learning Big Hero 6's identities.
  • Daddy's Girl: She has a good relationship with her father, even if he's embarassing at times.
  • Damsel in Distress: Trina takes Megan hostage towards the climax of "Legacies". This prompts Chief Cruz's change of heart and begging Big Hero 6's help.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has a sarcastic side, though it's more playful than derisive.
    Megan: [after seeing Hiro dance] You're not a genius at dancing.
  • Decomposite Character: Seems to be based of Marys Iosama from the comics, who, like Megan, is a nice, friendly and sassy girl Hiro's age who ends up befriending him. The Teen Genius part of Marys' character has been given to Karmi.
  • Determinator: As Hiro discovers, Megan will stop at nothing to discover Big Hero 6's true identities. No matter how many people refuse to speak to her about Big Hero 6, Megan always finds a new trail. Her efforts finally pay off in "Hiro the Villain" when she traces everything back to Hiro.
  • The Everyman: She's a normal high school student, compared to Hiro and most of the cast, who are technological geniuses.
  • Expy: The Intrepid Reporter with Ship Tease with the main hero is a common archetype in superhero fiction. See Lois Lane.
  • Family Eye Resemblance: She and her father have the same amber-colored eyes.
  • Foil:
    • To Karmi and Trina. All of them are female acquaintances to Hiro, are around his age, and have had Ship Tease with him. Karmi is his rival at SFIT and despises him (except for his alter ego) and Trina is what Hiro would've been like if he had stayed in bot-fighting and also turns out to be a villain and Obake's "daughter". As for Megan, she's an ordinary girl who has no problem getting along with him and the two hit it off pretty well and become friends. Unlike Karmi, she is a threat to Hiro's superhero life rather than a source of help to it, but unlike Trina, the threat is of a good-natured variety rather than a villainous one.
    • To Hiro. Megan is a normal 14 year old kid with interests, attends high school and loves to have fun. Hiro never got to live a normal life due to being a Child Prodigy growing up and being a superhero in the present day. He also doesn't do activities outside of school, his internship at Krei Tech and superhero missions, making him wonder if he misses out on being a normal 14 year old kid.
  • Genki Girl: She's always in a peppy mood and is excited into discovering Big Hero 6's identities.
  • Girl Next Door: A normal Nice Girl who's new in town and becomes the protagonist's friend while having some Ship Tease moments with him.
  • Hero Antagonist: Downplayed. While she's nowhere near the same level as her father, who's a more active threat as the chief of police and wants them arrested, Megan's determination and being too nosy about Big Hero 6's real identities is still a danger for Hiro and his friends.
  • Intrepid Reporter: She works for a school newspaper and is dead set on finding out Big Hero 6's real identities.
  • Kid Detective: A bit older than most examples, but still counts considering how Megan shows herself to be just as good as a professional journalist at only 14.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Heavily implied. Chief Cruz said he lost everything after his father died when he was a child, indicating that since his wife is nowhere to be found, Megan might be his only family left. This would explain why he's so protective of her.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Downplayed. Though she has a few Ship Tease moments with Hiro, Megan's primary role is one of a new friend of Hiro's age that makes him see the world through the eyes of a normal 14 year old kid and have fun like kids their age normally do.
  • Meaningful Name: Megan means "pearl", which fits Megan considering she's literally the pearl of her father's eyes. Her middle name Amelia means "industrious", "hard-working" in Latin, which goes well with her Determinator personality. It can also mean "defender", and she literally becomes Big Hero 6's defender when her father goes too far in his vendetta against superheroes.
  • Missing Mom: No clues of her mother's whereabouts. Her dad is apparently single, as he attempts to romantically pursue Aunt Cass.
  • Morality Pet: Chief Cruz is at his most sympathetic when it comes to his daughter.
  • Never Bareheaded: Wears a green clip in her hair with her everyday clothing. In the school dance from "Something's Fishy", she wears a blue hairclip to match with her dress.
  • Nice Girl: Is overall pretty friendly and sociable, especially when compared to Hiro's other love interests.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: She gets really up close to Big Hero 6 and pressures them into giving their real identities.
  • Omniglot: Implied. One of her elective in high school is foreign languages.
  • The Pollyanna: No matter who gets in her way to achieve her goal for finding Big Hero 6's true identities, Megan always finds a way to get back on trail and doesn't give up up.
  • Phenotype Stereotype: She's voiced by Isabella Gomez and has the Hispanic surname of Cruz. She also has dark skin, dark hair, and brown eyes.
  • Plucky Girl: Determined to find Big Hero 6's true identities for her school's journal.
  • Protectorate: To her father, BIG TIME.
  • Rhyming Names: "Super-Sleuth Megan Cruz".
  • School Clubs Are Serious Business: Megan is in photography club, foreign language, and also works for the school journal, and she takes her work VERY seriously.
  • Secret Keeper: She starts as a Secret Secret-Keeper in the last scene of "Hiro The Villain" when she manages to link Hiro directly as the core of Big Hero 6, without anyone from the team knowing. But in the next episode "Portal Enemy", Megan confronts Hiro about it, and it took Hiro putting himself in danger to make her realize Big Hero 6's identities should remain a secret and hide it from her own father.
  • Signature Headgear: Always wear two hairclips in her bangs.
  • Ship Tease: To some extent with Hiro. The two are only friends, though everyone else around them (especially Aunt Cass) thinks there's something going on between the two.
  • Spicy Latina: A downplayed teenage example. While she has nowhere near a temper such as fiery as Karmi's, Megan is hot-blooded when it comes to journalism and gets easily frustrated towards people when things don't work in her favor during her quest.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: She has a conspiracy wall about Big Hero 6 and stalks them to find out their secret identities.
  • String Theory: Megan has a whole conspiracy wall of Big Hero 6's whereabouts with pictures, article papers and red thread in her bedroom.
  • Sweet Tooth: She's seen eating donuts with her father after the second season's finale.
  • Teens Are Short: She's a teenage girl about the same height as Hiro (who is 5 foot tall).
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Styles her hair in a short high ponytail.
  • True Blue Femininity: Wears a blue dress at the school dance she brings Hiro to in "Something's Fishy".
  • Tsundere: Type B. She's normally very sweet and friendly, but she can get easily frustrated and grouchy when someone (in that case, Hiro) is lying to her or something doesn't work her way.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • Megan is not thrilled when she learns Hiro lied to her this entire time about his secret.
    • She also calls out her father on his unfair treatment of superheroes after he arrested the team through an illegal bait.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Megan doesn't seem to understand the purpose of superheroes' secret identities and how having them in the open could endanger them and their loved ones. Also in "Portal Enemy", Megan doesn't seem to realize that the Police Are Useless and that if her dad arrests the team, there could be great repercussions on the citizens without their heroes since the police doesn't have the tech they use against villains. Thankfully, she gets better.

    Felony Carl 

"Felony" Carl

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/felony_carl.png
Voiced by: Diedrich Bader
Appearances: The Series (debut: "Big Roommates 2")

A former felon who works as a bouncer to various places. He lives in GoGo's and Honey's neighborhood and is a friend of Dibs/Globby.


  • Ambiguously Brown: He's olive-tanned.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Felony Carl got registered on a dating site (which is implied to be heterosexual), yet he has a very close relationship with Globby/Dibs, where they almost act like a married couple at times.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Why he was in the police car in "Fred the Fugitive" is never explained. He says it's a "grievous misunderstanding". Big Hero 6 seem to think otherwise.
  • Badass Beard: Has a scruffy pinch beard.
  • Badass Biker: Although he isn't seen in action, he's a criminal biker with jail time on his hands.
  • Badasses Wear Bandanas: A large thug that wears a red bandana.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: A thick monobrow is a prominent feature of his Face of a Thug.
  • Bouncer: His job, as seen in "Food Fight" and "Mr. Sparkles Loses His Sparkles".
  • Brutal Honesty: Doesn't mince his words when the situation calls for it.
  • Cuddle Bug: He actually really loves hugs. Part of his Gentle Giant persona.
  • Deadpan Snarker: One of his main traits.
    Mr. Sparkles: Don't you know who I am?
    Felony Carl: A guy with an over-inflated sense of self?
  • Establishing Character Moment: He's seen aboard his motorcycle when Honey Lemon moves in Gogo's apartment, which is in a sketchy neighborhood. While he may appear like an intimidating biker, he immediately smiles and thanks Honey Lemon when she turns his motorcycle pink and tells her it "showcases how comfortable he is with his masculinity".
  • Face of a Thug: He looks like a tough, scary guy, but is actually a very kind person.
  • Fat and Skinny: The Fat to Globby/Dibs' Skinny.
  • Friend to All Living Things: He immediately bonds with a cat (that he's later shown to have adopted) and "Something Fluffy" shows him on his motorcycle filled with Mayoi.
  • Gentle Giant: He's huge and scary-looking, but quite friendly.
  • Guttural Growler: He speaks with a low, deep voice, but he's quite soft-spoken.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • In "Aunt Cass Goes Out", he describes himself on his dating profile as a "hopeless romantic".
    • He appears to be quite a Cuddle Bug. Who would've known by simply looking at him.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Subverted. Felony Carl looks rather intimidating in appearance, but once you get to know him, he's actually a kind, friendly person.
  • I Will Wait for You: He's devasted when Globby is branded a fugitive and begs Big Hero 6 to bring him back. He's seen waiting for him in "Legacies", and he's overflowed with joy when Globby comes back home after Chief Cruz retires his and Big Hero 6's fugitive statuses.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Calls Mr. Sparkles a nobody after he loses his popularity to Mochi. Considering how much of an obnoxious self-centered jerk Mr. Sparkles is, he deserved it.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: He's quite affectionate to cats, and immediately bonds with one that was clawing at Globby's face moments earlier. "The Globby Within" shows that he's adopted it.
  • Meaningful Name: "Carl" means "strong man", which definitely fits a bulky bouncer like Felony Carl.
  • Morality Pet: Is the one reason Globby did his Heel–Face Turn. Felony Carl is his Only Friend, or his "whole list" as he says. If it wasn't from him, San Fransokyo would probably be a goner.
  • Mr. Exposition: He knows a lot about the criminal underworld, as "The Fate of the Roommates" shows.
  • Nice Guy: Oddly enough is probably the kindest person on the show outside of Honey Lemon.
  • Noodle Incident: He did something that made him go from being called "Misdemeanor Carl" to "Felony Carl".
  • Not So Above It All: He fell just as hard as everyone else for the Mayoi, and he's shown to have adopted at least a dozen who all hang out on his motorcycle.
  • Only Friend: Dibs sees him as this, though Felony Carl just seems to tolerate him at best. However, by Season 2 they seem to have become genuine ones, with Carl even acting as a sort of emotional support for Dibs.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Is known by everyone as "Felony Carl" rather than simply "Carl". Carl implies it's his mother who started the nickname. Back in his youth, he was "Misdemeanor Carl".
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Asks Honey Lemon to make his motorcycle hot pink with glitter. His phone case is also pink with crystal gems.
    Felony Carl: Love the glitter. It showcases how comfortable I am with my masculinity.
  • Reformed Criminal: Possibly. He seems aware of the crime happening throughout the city, even the underground type, but nonetheless has never committed any crime on-screen. It was also mentioned on his dating profile that he got out of jail recently.
  • Supporting the Monster Loved One: His main role after Dibs got transformed into Globby. He doesn't seem bothered to see his friend transformed into a goo monster, and gives him advice when he needs to. His support is the one thing that cases Globby to commit a Heel–Face Turn when he realizes Obake's plan may put Felony Carl's life at risk (as well as the whole city's).
  • Unfazed Everyman: When he meets Globby for coffee after his transformation, Felony Carl isn't bothered in the slightest that he's talking to a humanoid goo man. He isn't even bothered by Mr Sparkles's over-the-top ego-derived antics in a later episode.
