Captain Buzz Lightyear
Buzz Lightyear is the hero of the Galactic Alliance, recipient of just about every known award for heroics, and greatest defender of the galaxy. A seasoned veteran, he knows how to handle most any situation, though sometimes his paranoia and ego can drive people around him a little nuts. But thanks to his smarts, he'll pull through anything the galaxy throws at him and his team.
Tropes associated with Buzz:
- The Ace: He is frequently shown as being the best at whatever he does.

- Large Ham: He can be very dramatic on occasion, especially when going into spiels about Zurg and his evil plans.

- Not So Above It All: Sometimes, he can be just as reckless as his teammates.

- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: He's willing to bend the rules if it's the only way he can do the right thing.
- Socially-Awkward Hero: He sometimes gets nervous and has trouble interacting with others properly, especially when dealing with women who are attracted to him.
- Token Human: His teammates are two aliens and a robot. From what can be seen, he's most likely human. Then again, see Ambiguously Human.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Cosmic chili. He's shown in episodes like "Rescue Mission" and "At Large on a Small Planet" to be devouring this food.
- Weaksauce Weakness: According to an episode involving clones, he's ticklish.
- You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: When he gets mad, it can be quite shocking.
Princess Mira Nova
Heir to the Tangean throne, Mira grew up under an overprotective and formal system of rule, save for a fling she had in her youth. That all changed when Buzz Lightyear saved her family from enslavement to Zurg. Inspired by him, she joined Star Command as a space ranger, quickly distinguishing herself among the rookies and being Commander Nebula's first pick for Buzz's replacement partner. Though Buzz took a few more partners than just her, she's still a strong and versatile ranger ready to tackle any challenge.
Tropes associated with Mira:
- The Ace: The very first thing we see her do is not only survive the level of training Buzz usually uses (which defeated every single other trainee), but then pass the next one as well via ghosting.
- Action Girl: She's the token female of the team and quite capable of kicking ass.
- Adorkable: She can be awkwardly endearing at times.
- Awesome Mc Coolname: Her name is also badass.
- Berserk Button: Calling other species inferior; see Fantastic Racism below for details.
- Beware the Nice Ones: She may be easygoing, but it would be suicidal to tick her off.
- Character Tics: Hers is stumbling over her words.
- Compressed Hair: When wearing her hood, it completely covers up her long hair.
- Deadpan Snarker: She sometimes makes remarks about her teammates' faults.
- Everything's Better with Princesses: A Space Ranger who happens to be a princess.
- Fantastic Racism: Averted with Mira, putting her in a stark contrast to the rest of of her species who consider themselves superior beings due to their mental powers.
- Fearless Fool: Dangerous missions do not deter her.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: The blue-skinned, entirely innocent edition.
- Impossible Hourglass Figure: Even in space armor.
- Intangible Man: Like all Tangeans, she can phase through solid objects.
- Interspecies Romance: With Romac, a Tangean Grounder.
- Kick Chick: She often fights by kicking.
- The Lancer: She is often second-in-command to Buzz.
- Latex Space Suit: Her spacesuit is notably more form-fitting than the others'.
- Long Hair Is Feminine: She's the token female of the team and she has long hair.
- Love Hurts: She's rather distraught when her old boyfriend Romac turns out to be allying with those against the side she's on.
- Missing Mom: Her mother isn't even mentioned.
- Modest Royalty: From the way she usually acts, one would hardly guess that Mira is actually royalty.
- Only Sane Man: She is frequently portrayed as the most sensible of the group.
- Rebellious Princess: She became a space ranger against her father's wishes.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: A princess who helps others as a member of the Galactic Alliance.
- The Smurfette Principle: She's the only female main character.
- Unskilled, but Strong: By Tangean standards, anyways. Joining Star Command caused Mira to miss the opportunity to fully hone her powers, so she has to learn them through experience and accident.
Booster Sinclair MunchapperBooster was once a humble farmer until the day Zurg invaded his home. Buzz Lightyear swooped in to help, and together they saved the day. Joining the janitorial staff, and studying to become a full space ranger, the Unimind crisis eventually gave Booster his lifelong dream of being a space ranger right alongside Buzz. While not the brightest or the swiftest, his heart and strength make him a formidable foe for any enemy of Star Command.
Tropes associated with Booster:
- Adorkable: He's often the most likeable and kindhearted of the group. His friendly nature helps.
- Almighty Janitor: Was literally (the janitor part) one during "The Adventure Begins" who proved his worth fighting along side Buzz, Mira and XR before becoming an actual Ranger himself.
- Ascended Fanboy: Used to be a janitor at Star Command, who badly wanted to join the Space Rangers.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Booster is usually a very nice and kindhearted person, but getting him mad is a very dangerous thing to do.
- The Big Guy: Addressed as such pretty regularly, too.
- Body Horror: His species is biologically hardwired to want to harvest "Bunzels", the crop his family raises. He morphs into a crab-monster when he's unable to do so, and returns to normal once he does.
- Boisterous Bruiser: He's big, cheerful, and packs a punch.
- The Call Put Me on Hold: He wanted to be a ranger so badly, he just never managed to pass the exam.
- Comedic Underwear Exposure: Three times in the series ("The Adventure Begins," "Beasts of Karn," and "Millennial Bugs") Booster's underwear has been exposed. He wears Tighty-Whities in two of the three episodes, but in "Millennial Bugs," he wore white Boxer Shorts with little planets on them.
- Averted with a side of Naked People Are Funny in "The Plasma Monster" where Booster after failing to neutralize Plasma Boy in his monster form with a component from the ship, Booster resorts to using his own spacesuit to contain Plasma Boy. The end result has Plasma Boy in Booster's suit, and a suitless Booster falling back to the ground, with no form of undergarments as he apparently went space commando that episode. Mira and XR's repulsed reactions to Booster say it all, despite the results of Booster's resourcefulness under dire circumstances.
- Embarrassing Middle Name: Booster Sinclair Munchapper. Lampshaded by Mira and XR in the episode "Root of Evil"Mira: Sinclair?XR: I'm still getting used to Munchapper.Booster: At least I have a last name, X! R!
- Gentle Giant: Zurg addressed him as such in "Lost in Time".
- Completely Averted in his Bunzel Beast form.
- Immune to Mind Control: During "The Taking of PC-7", Booster was not affected by the Universal Personality Adjuster Torque put on him after stealing it from PC-7's warden. Subverted at first, as Booster contacts Buzz and Mira to announce that he has sided with Torque, he is holding the Warden, and the Galactic President as hostages, and he calls Buzz "Buzz-Boy". Double Subverted and Justified when he tells his team that the personality portion of his mind is not in his head, and that he was faking alteration to get Torque off guard.
- Innocently Insensitive: Booster has had his moments where although he means well, he doesn't always realize the consequences his actions have on others.
- Intergenerational Friendship: In "Strange Invasion", he befriends a little alien girl named Becky, whom he is still shown to be close with in later episodes.
- One-Man Army: He is capable of taking out a group of foes by himself.
- Sarcasm-Blind: This happens to him a few times where sarcasm just flies over his head.
Ty: "Oh, would you? I'm sure they can't wait to hear how BUZZ saved me again. Make that call, PLEASE."Booster: "Right away, sir!" (He goes to call Star Command)Ty: (He blinks and does a Face Palm) "Sarcasm is lost on the big one."
- In "Wirewolf", for example, he doesn't pick up on Ty's sarcasm after Buzz saves him from NOS-4-A2.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to XR's Manly Man. Booster is more selfless and amiable than XR usually is.
- Shy Finger-Twiddling: Prone to this, when nervous.
XRThe eXperimental Ranger, XR was created by the LGMs to serve as Buzz's new partner, since as a robot, he'd be able to be fixed if anything bad happened to him. During his first field mission, he was obliterated by Agent Z, and due to the unimind's theft, when the LGMs fixed him, there were a few...quirks in his new programming. Nonetheless, he remained committed to his original goal of being a space ranger, and was eventually taken on as part of Team Lightyear.
Tropes associated with XR:
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Played with. XR is a far cry from his original programming to "Watch and Learn", but he still considers himself a space ranger for good.
- All Men Are Perverts: He frequently hits on every attractive woman he encounters.
- Came Back Wrong: Not that his original programming was anything to write home about, being limited to copying Buzz's every word, but the LGMs didn't quite manage to fix him the first time he got smashed, resulting in his current personality.
- Casanova Wannabe: Hits on any female in the vicinity and succeeds about as well as you'd expect.
- The Chew Toy: The amount of abuse that gets dished onto him is hard to believe.
- Do-Anything Robot: He has a lot of gadgets built into him.
- Fun with Acronyms: The eXperimental Ranger.
- Good Thing You Can Heal: Buzz long refused any teammates due to his previous one being "killed". The LGMs created XR because, as a robot, they could easily fix him if he breaks. Naturally, he gets blasted into pieces quite often.
- Iron Butt Monkey: He often gets damaged, but can be easily repaired. Also notably an intended part of his design, as he was created in part to help Buzz's fear that a new partner would simply get gunned down by Zurg.
- Plucky Comic Relief: He tends to provide comic relief through his egotistical ways and being subjected to comedic injuries.
- Pulling Themselves Together: He sometimes has to reattach body parts after losing them.
- Robot Buddy: A robot who pals around with the rest of the group.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Booster's Sensitive Guy. While Booster is a big softie, XR often has his moments of being lecherous and arrogant.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Desperately seeks Commander Nebula's approval and recognition as his "son."
Commander Zeb Nebula
The founder and commanding officer of Star Command.
Tropes associated with Commander Nebula:
- Authority Equals Asskicking: Played with. Though he is still a badass, his skills have atrophied somewhat due to being behind a desk. Despite that, he's still able to keep pace with Buzz when the two are on missions together.
- Badass Moustache: He has a big moustache.
- Benevolent Boss: Every space ranger adores and respects him, including Buzz.
- A Father to His Men: He cares about the well-being of his Rangers.
- General Ripper: Subverted. He's actually a very understanding and compassionate figure, even with his hot-headed personality.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: His temper may be short, but he's a courageous, trustworthy and skillful Ranger, and makes his faith to Buzz and his team very well-known.
- Leg Cannon: His peg leg fires laser blasts.
- Parental Substitute: He signed both XL and XR's work order forms, so both view him as their father—much to his irritation.
- Pen-Pushing President: As the Space Commander, he is forced to constantly do paperwork by his robotic desk.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He has a reasonable amount of trust in Team Lightyear and knows what they are capable of.

Tropes associated with Rocket:
- Always Second Best: To a lesser extent compared to Ty below.

- Always Second Best: He resents Buzz for being better than him at everything.
- Deadpan Snarker: Makes some sarcastic remarks about Buzz getting the glory while he's stuck with undesirable duties.
- Distressed Dude: His reputation is of constantly being rescued by Buzz.
- Fighting from the Inside: Ty managed to fight off the Wirewolf's instincts twice. Once he stopped himself from harming Buzz, the other was in attacking NOS-4-A-2 in retaliation for trying to harm Buzz.
- Painful Transformation: He often screamed in pain whenever he turned into the Wirewolf.
- Remember the New Guy?: He wasn't heard of until Buzz brought him up in a conversation and labeled him as an 'old buddy' from the Space Ranger Academy in "Wirewolf." This stems from the fact that Ty had been garrisoned on Canis Lunis, rather than serving on Star Command itself.
- The Resenter: He harbors negative feelings toward Buzz for being better than him.
- Tragic Monster: He is clearly shown to be distraught by his transformations into the Wirewolf and the destruction he causes while in that form.
- Unknown Rival: Buzz had no idea how much Ty resented him.
Tropes associated with the LGMs:
- Ditto Aliens: They all look alike. In "Good Old Buzz", they mistake Mira for Booster and explain that the other characters all look alike to them.
- Even Nerds Have Standards: One LGM has odd invention ideas, prompting his fellows to shake their heads and mutter, "Independent thinker."
- Evil Knockoff: Zurg's Grubs, similarly diminutive but minus the Hive Mind.
- Fun with Acronyms: They're Little Green Men.
- Hive Mind: Courtesy of the Unimind. Without it, they get disoriented and off their game.
- Little Green Men: What do you think "LGM" stands for?
- Mission Control: They often guide Team Lightyear through their missions through a communications link.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: When the "Independent Thinker" is kidnapped, they demand revenge and to accompany Team Lightyear on the rescue mission.
- Sweet Tooth: They are occasionally shown to have a fondness for sweets. For instance, Buzz gets some unconscious LGMs to come to by unwrapping a candy bar and waving it in front of them in "Ancient Evil", while "42" had XR distract the LGMs using a bunch of candy.
Evil Emperor Zurg
Tropes associated with Zurg:
- Arch-Enemy: He is Buzz Lightyear's main enemy.
- Bad Boss: It's implied he's this, but while he does seems to see his minions as expandable he comes off as more of a Mean Boss.
- Badass Cape: Reaches down to the floor.
- Berserk Button: Anything related to Buzz. Also, he really, really hates being betrayed.
- Beware the Silly Ones: As hammy as he can be, Zurg can match Buzz in a fight and his plans frequently endanger the galaxy. He is also perfectly willing to comit acts of great destruction and cruelty.
- BFG: If needed, Zurg can whip out the Ion Blaster at a given moment.
- Big Bad: He is the central villain of the series.
- Card-Carrying Villain: Again, Evil Emperor Zurg.
- Catch-Phrase: "CURSE YOU, BUZZ LIGHTYEAR!"
- Cold Ham: Occasionally dips into this, usually when he's pissed. And it's pretty terrifying.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Hidden is right, since we never see his face.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Against the local army of planet Roswell. It should be noted that he didn't even use his Hornets, it was just him!
- Darth Vader Clone: He is an Affectionate Parody of Darth Vader, to the point where he fights with a red swordlike rod in one episode. Though unlike his Toy Story 2 counterpart he doesn't seem to be related to Buzz.note
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Zurg has some very fond memories of his Nana Zurg, who was plenty evil as well.
- Even Evil Has Standards: He forms a very low opinion of Klerm."You know, it's twerps like you that give evil a bad name."
- Evil Overlord: Right there in the name.
- Evil Is Hammy: He's as dramatic as they get.
- Evil Is Petty: Yup. When Buzz was making a final speech, Zurg called up a camera crew to film it.
- Expressive Mask: His Darth Vader-esque mouthpiece moves is as fluid and expressive as an actual mouth, and the eyeholes commonly blink and change expression. It helps make his hammy posturing even more over the top.
- Eye Beams: Is capable of this. He actually has two versions of this: One is a more normal laser beam, and the other is where his eyes glow and he super heats whatever he's looking at.
- Glowing Eyes of Doom: If particularly angry, Zurg's eyes glow a brighter shade of red.
- The Man Behind the Man: He built NOS-4-A2, had Gravitina attack a planet in her first appearance, reactivated XL, and had his scientists give Torque his power.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes are red and he's a bad guy.
- Strange Minds Think Alike: At least twice, Buzz's paranoia over Zurg has lead to him making really out there theories about how current events are part of his plot, and Buzz has been proven right.
- Surrounded by Idiots: Has this opinion about his minions. Which, in fairness, is pretty true.
- You Have Failed Me: Lampshaded in NOS-4-A2's debut episode.Warp: Don't you have a strict "Failure means death" policy?
Zurg: Normally, yes.
Warp Darkmatter/Agent Z
Tropes associated with Warp:
- Artificial Limbs: His right arm was replaced with a robotic Swiss Army Weapon.
- Beard of Evil: He has a soul patch.
- Card-Carrying Villain: He has no problem referring to himself as evil.
- Deadpan Snarker: He often makes sarcastic quips, most notably about Buzz being surprised by his betrayal.
- The Dragon: He is frequently Zurg's main minion.
- Evil All Along: He is introduced as Buzz's comrade and friend, but it's quickly revealed that he's been working for Zurg his whole career.Warp: Look, Lightyear, I've been on Zurg's payroll since the academy.
- Evil Counterpart: His uniform, while dolled up, is shaped and functions just like his old Space Ranger suit. Explicitly laid out in the pilot movie.Agent Z: Bad news. They've sent Lightyear.
Zurg: That's why I sent you.
- Evil Feels Good: One of his stated motivations for allying with Zurg.
- Evil Former Friend: He used to be Buzz's partner (although he was never really on Buzz's side to begin with).
- Evil Pays Better: The other of his stated motivations for allying with Zurg.Warp: Evil is just so much more profitable than good... and more fun!
- Evil Sounds Deep: As Agent Z, his helmet deepened his voice and disguised his identity.
- Face–Heel Turn: From the perspective of both Buzz and the audience, he's a Space Ranger gone bad.
- Faking the Dead: In the beginning of the pilot. Once he finds out about the Unimind, Warp is made a full time member of Zurg's forces.
- Human Alien: The only thing that's "alien" about him is his skin colour.
- Meaningful Name: As lampshaded by Warp himself, it's rather appropriate that someone with the surname of DARKmatter is a villain.
- The Mole: While he worked for Star Command.
- Unrobotic Reveal: As Agent Z, he looks like a robot with his helmet and robotic arm. Zurg even describes him as being "a delightful blend of man and machine, with just a naughty touch of lingonberry". However, once Buzz subdues him, Warp ditches his helmet and reveals himself, much to Buzz's shock.
- You Are Number 6: Before the reveal of his survival, Warp was dubbed Agent Z. He thinks the name is stupid, but Zurg is insistent on it.
Tropes associated with NOS-4-A2:
- Catch-Phrase: "Lovely".
- Evil Brit: Despite his voice actor being Scottish.
- Evil Is Hammy: Nowhere near as bad as Zurg, but he has his moments.
- Fangs Are Evil: He's got an impressive set that can even spin like drill bits.
- Glowing Eyes of Doom: His eyes tend to glow when he feeds on energy.

- High-Class Glass: One of his robotic eyes are made to look like this.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: In his final appearance.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: A robotic "energy vampire".
- Our Vampires Are Different: He is a robot rather than undead. He feeds off of the energy of other robots and can control machinery he has corrupted. He hates blood, but when a human is in the presence of radioactive moon stone, his bite can turn them into a wirewolf.
- Punny Name: His name is leetspeak spelling for Nosferatu.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: He's a villain with red eyes.
- Small Name, Big Ego:NOS-4-A2: Zurg led me to believe you were a foe to be reckoned with. He overestimates you.
Buzz: Leave it to Zurg to create a villain more arrogant than himself!
- The Starscream: Zurg created him to attack Star Command and is comparable to a father, but in the end, NOS-4-A2 conquers Zurg's planet to claim his inheritance.
- Unexplained Recovery: He "died" multiple times but kept coming back up until his final appearance when Ty Parsec ripped him into shreds.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He and XL have a Villain Team-Up. But after converting much of the galaxy into Wirewolves, he threatens to consume XL, prompting a Heel–Face Turn on XL's part.
Tropes associated with XL:
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: The reason why he was deactivated by Star Command. He was violent and crazy from the start.
- Big Brother Bully: To XR, both figuratively and literally.
- Cain and Abel: To XR. Since he is XR's prototype, they're basically brothers.
- Cardboard Prison: Lampshaded when one of the buttons on his arm is labelled "Break Out of Prison."XR: No wonder he keeps escaping.
- Evil Counterpart: He's essentially an evil XR.
- Flawed Prototype: Is also this to XR, having been created as part of the LGMs' first attempt to create a robot ranger.
- Genius Ditz: He can build some impressive devices and even come up with some impressive plans, but he's otherwise an idiot.
- Heel–Face Turn: After narrowly avoiding betrayal from NOS-4-A2, he ends up returning to Star Command. His body is remade into a robot printer and he acts as a second robot "son" to Commander Nebula, much to Nebula's exasperation.
- Oh, Crap!: In "Revenge of the Monsters", when he realizes that he's reaching the point where NOS-4-A2 will no longer need him.
- This Is a Drill: Has a giant, spiked drill in one of his arms.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Like XR, he wants to prove his worth to Commander Nebula, but in an evil "You were wrong about me" way.
Tropes associated with Torque:
- Badass Longcoat: A key part of his outfit is his brown duster, which he wears most of the time.
- Brainwashing for the Greater Good: He ends up in a prison that was attempting to do this. He manages to use the brainwashing device on Buzz to turn him evil. When XR is tasked with fixing Buzz and has trouble reaching him, he uses the device on one of the Torques, giving him Buzz Lightyear's personality and resulting in him saving the day.
- Expendable Clone: One Torque always survives, but it isn't uncommon for the others to get completely disintegrated.
- Expy: For Lobo, whom he shares a voice actor with.
- Extra Eyes: He has five of them.
- Fingerless Gloves: He wears them, as shown in the pic.
- Me's a Crowd: Zurg painfully integrates him with a device that allows him to create copies of himself.

Tropes associated with Gravitina:
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: After Buzz kept rejecting her, she tried to hook up with Evil Buzz from the Alternate Universe, but he was just using her. In the end, Evil Buzz abandons her to her death while Buzz ends up being the one to save her, resulting in her hoping he can act more naughty in the future.
- Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: The Gravity Master has a super-huge head, and the powers apparently stem from the head being so big.
- Butter Face: She's a Ms. Fanservice except for her oversized cranium.
- Dating Catwoman: Has an unrequited crush on Buzz Lightyear, and once bestows her powers on him to try and get him to reciprocate.
- Freudian Excuse: Gravitina is a villain because she's been driven mad by people harassing her about her oversized head and involuntary expressions of power.
- Gravity Master: The Mistress of Mass, and all of its attractions. She can control gravity waves, hence the name.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: Blue-skinned, actually, and quite attractive if you overlook the grossly oversized, spherical cranium.
- Murder the Hypotenuse: Metaphorically phrased her plan to destroy Star Command as this when Buzz said that the "other woman" in his heart was Star Command.
- My Brain Is Big: Gravitina's head is ridiculously round and swollen — it even has its own personal ring to further the resemblance to a planetoid.
- Power Incontinence: Gravitina can't fully control her powers, and has a tendency to accidentally "pick up" things with her natural gravitational field. The negative reactions this engendered, combined with the teasing over her oversized head, are what drove her to villainy.
- She's Got Legs: Considering the PG-rated outfit she wears.
- What the Hell Is That Accent?: It sounds like a mix of Russian, French, and German.
The President of the Galactic Alliance
Tropes associated with the President of the Galactic Alliance:
- No Name Given: We only know her as the president.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: She has a tendency to shout and can be overbearing at times, but is generally a fair-minded and intelligent leader.
- Sassy Black Woman: Well, actually green, but the principal is the same.
Tropes associated with Crumford Lorak:
- Con Man: He likes to trick people out of their money. One notable example is in "The Return of XL", where he tricks XR into giving him money for the whereabouts of the Fixer and calls him a "sucker" after doing so.
- Gonk: He is one butt-ugly alien.
- The Informant: He's typically the one our heroes turn to when they need information about illegal activities and criminals that have gone into hiding.
Dr. Ozma Furbanna
Tropes associated with Dr. Furbanna:
- Animal Wrongs Group. A one person version of this. Her desire to study endangered dangerous animals on Karn superseded any desire to help others since, in her own words, she's not a "people" person. She tries to help Zurg rebirth an entire species of invulnerable galaxy-destroying acid-spewing bugs simply because they are close to extinction and she wants to protect them.
- Hartman Hips: She has wide hips.
- Nightmare Fetishist: She often sported a look of absolute joy and ecstasy as she talked about or commented on the habits of horrific creatures she was interested in.
- Not Good with People: Type 2. She cares about even the deadliest of predators, but tends to come off as being callously indifferent when sapient beings are in danger.
- Opposites Attract: With Buzz. Buzz has feelings for her even though her intentions of preserving the ecosystem at all costs clashes with his desire to save anyone in danger.
- Powered Armor: She uses an armored suit to survive in the jungle. She can hold her own against any danger.
- Skewed Priorities: The aforementioned galaxy destroying acid spewing murderbugs mentioned above? She was afraid for them rather than the Capital Planet citizenry they were attempting to eat. Later, while on a rescue mission, she ruins it and nearly costs Mira and the President their lives... because she was worried about a monster that just ate her and Buzz, and it's offspring. Buzz even calls her on it.
The proprietor of the diner that Team Lightyear frequents.
- Supreme Chef: At the very least, it's amazing how he can fix up multiple customer's orders all at once.
Cosmo's cute alien waitress that works at his diner.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: Yellow-skinned, actually and quite the cute one. Especially when Buzz blushes when they talked sometime.
A courier who has the uncanny ability to track down Buzz Lightyear and deliver his packages to him.
- Unstoppable Mailman: No matter where the client may be, whether in space or on Tradeworld, Ed will find them and give them their packages.
Ruler of Tangea, and Mira's father. It was under his rule that Tangea finally joined the Galactic Alliance, though not without grumbling from many - including King Nova, who was uninterested in affairs beyond his homeworld until Zurg attacked the planet.
Tropes associated with King Nova:
- Fantastic Racism: Like most Tangeans he sees himself as a superior being. As the show goes on, he begins to lose this.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: At least in the early episodes in which he views all non-Tangeans as inferior creatures, and often expresses open disdain for Mira's "primitive" comrades. He also openly disapproves of her involvement with the Space Rangers. But ultimately, he really does love his daughter and wants what's best for her.
- Pride: His greatest flaw, shared with most of the Tangean Royals.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: His actions in "Planet Destroyer" and "Supernova" confirm that he's willing to take action whenever lives are at stake.
The CEO of Comp U Klerm, who though not quite a villain is still a danger to Star Command.
Tropes associated with Norbert Klerm:
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: He runs a company called Comp U Klerm and is often obsessed with wiping out Star Command.
- Evil Redhead: He has red hair and isn't very nice.
