    Cajun Fox 
Voiced by: Paul Schoeffler

A fox very reminiscent of a certain Looney Tunes character. Only the fact that he's a fox, has shades, and actually would have gotten his prize if it weren't for a slapstick chase with a certain cowardly dog.


  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: He wears oversized sunglasses.
  • Affably Evil: He generally sports a relaxed and laid-back personality, though he sometimes becomes demented when his goals are in danger
  • Amusing Injuries: All part of the episode he's in being a Looney Tunes-esque take of the show.
  • Born Unlucky: HE thinks he's Born Lucky. He's wrong, as evident by the abuse he endures while Courage tries to rescue Muriel from him.
  • Butt-Monkey: Constantly suffering misfortunes goes hand-in-hand with being a Wile E. Coyote Expy.
  • Cartoony Eyes: An exaggerated example. Just one of his eyes is as big as his head. No wonder he wears those shades.
  • Catchphrase: "Whoo yeah!"
  • Cool Shades: He wears sunglasses to cover his comedically oversized eyeballs.
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: Despite the fact that the recipe sounds like a list of what one would throw into witch's cauldron, his Cajun Fox Stew is apparently superb.
  • Cunning Like a Fox: He can be sneaky though he fails at being wily enough.
  • Curse Cut Short: While inside a slowly sinking steamroller, "That dog is a real pain in the a*blub blub*"
  • Evil Chef: His inclinations towards morally questionable culinary art are so strong, that even when he becomes a member of a Legion of Doom, his methods always involve some kind of cooking: he hangs Muriel over a cauldron which he has wanted to do for a long time and uses hot-chilli pierogi as projectiles. And of course his weapon of choice for finishing off Courage is a meat-cleaver.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He shows a neurotic side whenever something doesn't go the way he wants it.
  • Expy: He's similar to Wile E. Coyote in a few ways, particularly in that he's motivated by his appetite.
  • Gonk: Without his shades on, he's pretty weird-looking.
  • Hammer Space: It's a wonder how his sunglasses are able to fit over his ginormous eyeballs.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Due to his own bad luck, he often gets hurt by his own actions.
  • Lean and Mean: His thin body makes one wonder how often does he savour the recipes he concocts.
  • Leitmotif: His is a cheery harmonica and washboard tune.
  • Renaissance Man: He's apparently a good chef, a police fox, an ace pilot, and a very fast runner.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: His favorite seems to be "I got a stew to do," since he says it no less than three times.
  • Sinister Shades: His shades cover his bulging, oversized eyes.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He boasts about being born lucky when it is obvious that such a claim is far from the truth.
  • Southern Gentleman: Very polite and genteel for a villainous man-eater.
  • Strong as They Need to Be: Throughout the episode, he has no trouble lifting Muriel above his head and running at full speed. At the end, he has trouble just lifting Muriel into the pot. Which happens to be what leads him to not winning.
  • Sunglasses at Night: The entire cartoon he's in takes place in a day, but he's seen without them only a few times, even in his den.
  • To Serve Man: His attempt to stew Muriel is what drives the plot of his episode.

    Demon in the Mattress 
Voiced by: ???

Demon described as Exactly What It Says on the Tin. When someone sleeps on the bed, he possesses their body by making their skin green, and their hair red. He can only be ousted by an incantation.


  • Card-Carrying Villain: Considering he's a demon whose only purpose seems to be possessing people who buy the mattress, he's really got no choice and no care but to be unashamed of and willing to admit his malevolent nature.
  • Conspicuous CGI: The hearse that delivers the mattress is obviously animated in CGI.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Sometimes. Particularly when Eustace fails through the incantation.
  • Demonic Possession: He possesses Muriel, and Eustace in the ending.
  • Einstein Hair: Muriel gets them when he takes over her body.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Has some hammy dialogue just as suddenly as he returns to whispering. Probably because he is having the time of his foul existence.
    Demon: It would be lovely...if I could have...a cup...of...TEA!!!
  • Evil Laugh: One of the most memorable in the series.
  • Evil Redhead: While possessing Muriel, it makes her hair turn red.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: When possessing Muriel, it gives her a gruff male voice.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He has polite mannerisms, but it still doesn't do anything to hide his nature as a malevolent demon.
  • Fiery Redhead: Okay the hair isn't technically his, but he is hot-tempered and looks like this while inhabiting her.
  • Laughably Evil: This demon makes a riot out of a Demonic Possession and has a hell of a laugh at everyone else's expense. He puts the heck in heckling as all of the things he does after taking over a host are aimed at childishly teasing and trolling all related individuals.
  • Nightmare Face: A hideous face can be seen on the mattress. Also, the weasel pulls this whenever he hisses.
  • Our Demons Are Different: An evil spirit who at first inhabits a mattress.
  • Shout-Out: Everything the demon does in Muriel's body is very similar to what happens to the girl in the film The Exorcist.
  • Troll: It is not known how typical this behaviour is where he comes from, but he surely likes to mess with people and make them expect the worst only to do something innocuous. Or pretend to whisper something in their ear in order to vomit on them.
  • Who Writes This Crap?!: Eustace recites this part of the exorcism chant with bewilderment:
    "Kick 'em in the dishpan, hoo, hoo, hoo?!"

    Freaky Fred 
Voiced by: Paul Schoeffler

Muriel's nephew. At first glance, he just seems to be a crazy, creepy barber. But deep down he's much worse then that. He speaks in his mind and speaks normally in rhymes, but he has basically an obsession (and possibly a fetish) for cutting every single hair off someone. When he cuts Courage's hair he doesn't stop until just the hair on Courage's tail remains.


  • Affably Evil: If he weren't someone who seems to have a strange satisfaction in cutting every single hair on someone you would think he was just a normal creepy barber that thinks/speaks in rhymes.
  • Alliterative Name: Both parts of his name begin with F.
  • Anime Hair: Has wild, unkempt hair.
  • Anti-Villain: Type IV. Unlike most villains in the show, Fred has never any murderous intent with his actions; it's just a sick fetish he can't resist.
  • Bald of Awesome: Appears to be slightly balding.
  • The Barber: He's a barber for a living.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: His large eyebrows contribute to his wild appearance.
  • Catchphrase: He frequently says "NAAAUUUUUUUUUGGGHHHTTYYY."
  • Cloudcuckoolander: A very mentally disturbed example, but his obsession with shaving people bald, makes him one of the strangest characters in the show.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: Eustace's description of Fred is kind of redundant.
    Eustace: The freak's a barber. A freeeaky barber. With his own freaky barber shop. Where freaky things happen. Freaky barber things!
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: His obsession with shaving heads as a gag looks a lot like a PG analogue of much darker humor.
  • Einstein Hair: Indicative of his messiness and ironic for someone who is obsessed with cutting hair.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Subverted with his girlfriend, who left him after he shaved off her hair (he doesn't seem too bothered by this). Implicitly played straight with Muriel, who dotes on him and whom he seems to genuinely like (at least enough to visit her with no apparent ulterior motive, having not known Courage was there until after he entered the house).
  • Everyone Has Standards: He refuses to shave Courage's tail, because he considers it "weird."
  • Evil Brit: Subverted. He has a British accent, but he isn't really evil.
  • Expy: He is essentially a Lighter and Softer version of Sweeney Todd.
  • Fetish: He has a weird obsession for shaving hair.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Fred gives off many creepy vibes, because he kind of acts like a sex offender.
  • Green Eyes: He has green eyes, making him even more exotic looking.
  • Harmless Villain: The only "threat" Fred poses is just shaving all the hair off someone, and going about it in a very creepy way.
  • Inner Monologue: Most of Fred's dialogue is one. He only speaks a couple times to the other characters, and even then it's just short sentences like "you shouldn't play in the toilet," and "Coouuurage...your haaaiiir."
  • Leitmotif: The creepy music box in the background serves as his theme music.
  • The Mentally Disturbed: Was a patient at the "Home for Freaky Barbers." At the end of the episode, he goes back and he doesn't even understand it that way, calling the orderlies "landlords" and the ambulance "private room".
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Everything about him comes off as extremely creepy.
  • Noodle People: He's drawn with long and thin limbs and torso like most normal human characters on the show.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: Even though he did nothing but just shave hair, he STILL managed to scare a lot of kids.
  • Obliviously Evil: Possibly. He doesn't seem to see his actions as anything worse than "NAAAUUUUUUUUUGGGHHHTTYYY".
  • Perpetual Smiler: Wears a constant grin, which adds to his creepiness.
  • Poke the Poodle: He was a mentally unstable barber whose major vice was only shaving too much hair off his victims. Still, the show managed to make that really creepy.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Most of his episode is his internal monologue, in which he speaks in rhyme.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: He has a very refined and poetic speech pattern, which only highlights his insanity and how differently he perceives the world.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Wears a nice green suit.
  • Shout-Out: To Sweeney Todd. He also resembles Beetlejuice.
  • Slasher Smile: Has a creepy smile, although it also looks like a Cheshire Cat Grin.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: He speaks in Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness for most of his poem, but one line was "And so I figured 'What the heck?'"
  • Traumatic Haircut: Gives an embarrassing haircut to Courage.
  • Verbal Tic: Just about all his monologues end with him saying "NAAAAUUUUGHTYYYY..."
  • Wicked Cultured: Quite eloquent and well-spoken and dresses in a smart tweed suit.

    Weremole 
Voiced by: John R. Dilworth

A creature that moves underground and mainly preys on rabbits. But if it bites a human or perhaps other creatures that survive its bite, they turn into a weremole themselves. The only way to cure a transformation is to get a hair off the original weremole and get it into the affected person's mouth. Presuming you can get lucky enough to get either the Weremole or the victim without getting bitten yourself.


    Horst's Box Demon 
Voiced by: N/A

The demon who lived in the box that Eustace's dead brother left behind as an inheritance.


  • Ambiguously Evil: This demon looks quite menacing, but after dragging Eustace into its box, Eustace finds that he has landed in a huge pile of money, much to his joy. The only problem is that he has nowhere to go to spend it.
  • Bigger on the Inside: When Eustace gets trapped inside the box, he finds himself in what appears to a pocket dimension filled with a vast sea of money.
  • Chest Monster: It's a (seemingly) malevolent spirit that lives inside a suitcase, and wants to pull in any person who opens it.
  • Eldritch Abomination: There's no telling what exactly this thing is, and its arms and hands are the only parts that are visible.
  • The Faceless: Only its long, gigantic arms are shown.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: WHO KNOWS WHAT THIS THING LOOKS LIKE?!

    King Ramses 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5d5366b47bc2a01011c3d9200949738c.jpg
Return the slab, or suffer my curse...
Voiced by: John R. Dilworth

The ghost of an Egyptian pharaoh who places a curse on any thief who takes his tomb slab. The first curse being a flood, the second being a really loud Ear Worm song coming from a record player, and the last being locusts that eat anything.


    The Clutching Foot 
Voiced by: Paul Schoeffler

Mobster-like foot fungus monster that is created from a strange infection that overwhelms Eustace. The Big Toe is the mob boss, while all the rest are followers with no different personalities except maybe for the Pinky Toe.


  • Body Horror: This thing is a parasitic foot fungus that completely engulfs Eustace's body. It's just as gross as it sounds.
  • The Brute: To itself, oddly enough, as it is a gang of 5 all in one, and does the heavy lifting itself.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Yeah, see."
    • "Or the fat lady gets it!"
  • The Ditz: The Pinky Toe. Compared to the Big Toe who is the schemer and the three middle toes who have no personality, he's a bit slow on the uptake.
  • Enemy Without: He was originally Eustace's foot. But in his second appearance, he shows up as his own entity. Last time he was seen growing in Courage's tongue so it is not clear how he managed to find another foot to take over and return. Well considering the series...
  • Eyes Always Shut: All the toes appear to be squinting to make the classic gangster stereotype even more obvious.
  • The Mafia: They act and sound like stereotypical American mobsters from the Prohibition/Depression era.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: The big toe talks like Edward G. Robinson.
  • The Runt at the End: The Pinky toe is the smallest of the group.
  • Stating the Simple Solution: Pinky Toe suggested they Just Shoot Him in "Ball of Revenge", and was reprimanded by the other 4 toes.
  • Toilet Humor: Whenever he squeezes Muriel, she farts.

    The Goose God 
Voiced by: Paul Schoeffler

A god who is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. He desires love and a worthy queen to be wed to. He gets a crush on Muriel and tries to take her as her queen. At least until he hears the sound of the horn of Eustace's truck.


  • Anything That Moves: He's a bird god who wants to get with a human, and later a motor vehicle. Which, due to a later Call-Back, seems to have stayed a functional relationship. Sounds about right, considering.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He talks like a Shakespearean actor and gesticulates like an opera singer.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: A rather impressive baritone, as befitting a goose god.
  • Expy: Of the Greek god Zeus. He even has the same lust for mortal women.
  • Feathered Fiend: A bird who isn't exactly evil, but is definitely a jerk.
  • Green Thumb: He can create an endless field of flowers.
  • Immortality Immorality: He ultimately decides to kidnap Muriel when he can't win her over, because he feels like it's his right as a god.
  • Interspecies Romance: His episode centers around him trying to woo Muriel. He later settles for a pickup truck though. Then again he is a deity, so the goose is merely his chosen form, and the interspecies is between divine and mortal.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He refuses to take Muriel's "no" for an answer.
  • Jerkass God: He's a deity who feels entitled to whomever he lusts after.
  • Large Ham: From his hyper-dramatic soliloquies to his ridiculously showy attempts to impress Muriel, nothing this guy does is subtle.
  • Odd Job Gods: He's basically a divine bird-man, who's apparently the God of Gooses.
  • Physical God: A cartoony Zeus parody, to be exact. Also a goose for whatever reason.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Not only in his dialogue, but also in the poem and the song he writes for Muriel.
  • Shock and Awe: Can form and throw lightning bolts at will.
  • Smug Snake: As you might expect from a god, he has nothing but contempt for mortals. With the exception of Muriel.
  • Toothy Bird: Has a rather disturbing toothy grin, despite being a goose. Justified in this case, since he's not actually a bird, just a god that looks like one.
  • Wicked Cultured: Writes music and poetry and sings opera. Also kind of a jerk.

    Queen of the Black Puddle 
Voiced by: ???

A siren/succubus-like monster who lives in a black puddle. She lures in men to her puddle and eats them.


    Errol van Volkheim 
Voiced by: Peter Fernandez

Benton Tarantella's late partner-in-crime. Tarantella plans to raise Volkheim from the dead as another zombie, to try and eat Muriel together.


  • Film Felons: Volkhiem and Tarantella posed as ordinary filmmakers, killing people to create snuff films.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: As they are zombies after all, Errol and Benton attempted to eat Muriel.
  • Karma Houdini: Seriously, how does a murderer of twelve people get released on "good behavior", while his partner rotted in prison for the rest of his life? And when he returns as a zombie, we can see that he's still evil as ever.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His name and vaguely German-ish accent are based on real-life silent movie director Erich von Stroheim.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Like Tarantella, Volkheim retains his intelligence and personality as a zombie, but also gains a taste for human flesh.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Courage manages to foil their evil plot by editing the film script, so they release Muriel unharmed. Tarantella and Volkheim argue, and then they leave the house on their separate ways.
  • Serial Killer: When they were still alive, Volkheim helped Tarantella murder 12 people. But Volkheim somehow managed to get paroled from prison.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He doesn't even return during Tarantella's second episode. Then again, he did say at the end of Tarantella's first appearance that he was through working with him.

    The Precious, Wonderful, Adorable, Lovable Duckling 
Voiced by: Arnold Stang

A baby duck who hatches from an egg on a cooking pot, who develops a love for Eustace. So much so, that he tries to eliminate the one person who likes Eustace just as much as he does: Muriel.


    The Eggplants 
Voiced by: Jim Cummings (Bobby Ganoush)

Large group of living eggplants that believe Muriel is a great evil that must be extinguished. But they won't attack until they are ordered by The Great Eggplant to do so. They become nicer when water finally drops and their vines grow.


  • G-Rated Drug: Water mellows them out.
  • Heel–Face Turn: They become more benevolent when the soil becomes more wet.
  • Nice Hat: Bob O'Gonoush and Ratatoullie. The latter has a Commissar Cap, the former has a strange-looking toque.
  • Plant People: They are anthropomorphic vegetables after all.
  • Shout-Out: The Great Eggplant may be directly or indirectly be based on The Great Pumpkin.
  • Take a Third Option: Once they capture Muriel, they can't agree whether to fry or grill her and only reach a consensus when one eggplant says, "Why don't we bake her?"
  • To Serve Man: They intend to cook and eat Muriel.

    The Great Fusilli 
Voiced by: Jim Cummings

An alligator stage owner that finds people wishing to make famous stage stars/actors and make him puppets on his stage for an audience that actually isn't even there. When they act on stage, strings come down from the masks and transforms them into puppets.


  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: An anthropomorphic crocodile with a hat and a cape.
  • Con Man: He tricks people into joining him as actors, with promises of fame and fortune.
  • Deal with the Devil: He convinces people to sign on with him, promising to make them stars, but really intending to turn them into puppets.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He acts very dramatic, not only because he's a stageowner, but because he's evil as heck.
  • Evil Laugh: Of course, this is something of a trademark for Cummings. He lets out a long, powerful laugh as his stage is turning Muriel and Eustace into puppets.
  • Evil Puppeteer: A travelling puppeteer who manipulates people into joining him so he can turn them into puppets.
  • Hellish Pupils: His pupils are noticeably slit-shaped. They lend him a sinister glare that is absolutely fitting for his wicked personality.
  • High Collar of Doom: His Ominous Opera Cape includes a pink collar that, along with his wide hat, completely covers the back of his head.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His own stage turns him into a puppet.
  • Lean and Mean: He has a barrel chest that tapers down to an extremely tiny waist.
  • Living Doll Collector: He turns people into puppets and keeps them hung up backstage.
  • Lizard Folk: He is an anthropomorphic crocodile.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Having a lot of teeth is to be expected from an alligator/crocodile.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: This crocodile proves to be one of the most vile antagonists in the show.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a wide-brimmed blue hat with a purple band and a long white feather.
  • Ominous Opera Cape: Wears a long purple cape, fitting for such a dramatic stage actor. Of course, it's also fitting considering how evil he is.
  • People Puppets: His stage literally turns people into puppets. This is also how he meets his end.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Implied. The way he "plays" with puppet-ified Muriel and Eustace is reminiscent of a cruel kid, and the fact that there are so many unused puppets backstage indicates that he just throws them there when he's done playing with them.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His cape and collar are purple.
  • Sadist: What else do we call someone who enjoys turning everyone he meets into lifeless objects/toys for him to play with, and feels good as the master puppeteer of corpses?
  • Wicked Cultured: Apparently has an artistic bent, despite being a psychopath. Given the loquacious speeches he gives even when used to deceive, he certainly didn't get this theatricality out of Nowhere.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: His shifty yellow eyes are an early hint that he's bad news.

    Robot Randy 
Voiced by: Peter Fernandez

A robot from a whole planet of militaristic robots, who acts differently from the rest. Instead of wanting to destroy things, he wants to pick up a hobby/job of making wooden reindeer. He is at first ridiculed for this, but when it turns out to be a great business, he is more accepted when he gets back to his planet.


  • Alien Invasion / Robot War: Randy's people invade other planets for a living. He's given the task of finding a planet to conquer in order to prove his worth; so he chooses Earth. He never moves beyond seizing the Bagge farmlands though.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: He isn't well-liked by the rest of his kind. Ironic that he makes reindeer, no. In fact he's also red colored... hmm.
  • Companion Cube: He regards his wooden reindeer dolls as his friends.
  • Disintegrator Ray: His head is a dome that contains a large laser cannon, which he uses to incinerate Eustace multiple times.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He's among the monsters and villains seen in the show's opening in the first season even though he doesn't appear within the series until season two.
  • Genius Bruiser: Despite being a giant, destructive robot, he's rather gifted when it comes to woodcarving.
  • Humongous Mecha: He's a giant alien war robot, though fully autonomous.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: He's not really interested in invading other worlds like his fellow robots, he just wants to whittle and make reindeer dolls.
  • Large Ham: Due to his voice actor doing a rather dramatic Christopher Walken impression.
  • Made a Slave: He enslaves the Bagge family and forces them to build statues of his likeness.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: He may not be as impressive as the other robots, but in Nowhere, he's still a Humongous Mecha with lasers.
  • Shout-Out: His entire speech and mannerisms are a shout out to Christopher Walken.

    Schwick 
Voiced by: ???

An anthropomorphic cockroach who invites the Bagge family to a dusty hotel room in New York City, where just on the wall is a small mouse door that has something in there that is never directly known as all that's left of its victims are bones. Schwick is also a wanted criminal, and to hide his tracks he hires Courage to deliver a present to a scary apartment with rooms full of horrible things (one including a certain Violin Girl).


    Basil 
Voiced by: ???

A deranged and confused burglar who is very prone to mood swings and personality shifts. Sometimes he's convinced that the Bagges are his own relatives.


  • Affably Evil: When he thinks that the Bagges are his family, he's very nice to them.
  • Anti-Villain: He's an aggressive thief, though he's very mentally ill, so it at least partially excuses his crimes.
  • Ax-Crazy: The crazy part of this criminal speaks for itself, though Fish-Crazy would be more accurate.
  • Badass Normal: He was one of the very few antagonists on the show that was nothing more than a normal human. A terminally confused human wielding a fish, but a human nonetheless.
  • Blatant Burglar: He is never seen wearing anything other than his domino mask and burglary clothing even when he gives up this way of living.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: To the point where even Muriel agrees with her husband that he's nuts. His major goal in life (which he eventually succeeded in) was to be an electric eel masseuse. Yeah.
  • Domino Mask: He never gets up without it.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He first appears in "The Shadow Of Courage" as a transformation Courage undergoes during his usual futile attempt at warning Eustace and Muriel.
  • Evil Brit: In his "hardened criminal" identity, he's a thug with a Cockney accent. Subverted with his other affable personality.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Complete with "chin-butt".
  • The Mentally Disturbed: On a comparable level to Fred, it's clear this guy has issues.
  • Nice Hat: A knit hat to fit his burglar outfit.
  • Perma-Stubble: He is always slightly unshaven like your typical prisoner.
  • Shamu Fu: His Weapon of Choice is a fish.
  • Split Personality: It sounds imposssible but in truth he manages to invert and its other people that he splits in his mind. At first he behaves like a hardened criminal but then he adopts a very Affably Evil demeanour towards the Bagges and then he goes back with the aggression. The reason is that its not his personality that really changes but rather his understanding of who the surrounding individuals are: his victims become just as suddenly his relatives and partners in crime as back to who they really are.

    Mayan Baker 
Voiced by: ???

A mummy who was once the royal baker for a Mayan queen, who was a past incarnation of Muriel. He came back recognizing Muriel as the Mayan Queen, and Eustace as the Royal Pubbah, and looks for revenge.


  • Body Horror: The description of his torture invokes unsettling imagery regarding his anatomy. Including his mouth sewn shut. And keep in mind the steps that go into the mummification process.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: In spite of making his full debut in season two, he can be seen in the first season's opening.
  • Mis-blamed: In-universe. It was the Royal Pubbah who caused him to be mummified, as he was stealing cookies behind the queen's back, and the baker had tried to stop him. Once Courage has the scene re-enacted (via hypnosis), only this time ending with the Pubbah revealed as the culprit, does he finally find peace.
  • Mummy: A rare Mesoamerican example of an undead preserved corpse.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: All that can be seen of his face are glowing red eyes.
  • Show Some Leg: Hilariously hitched a ride by exposing his leg to Di Lung and it worked, despite the fact that the sexy leg obviously belonged to a centuries-old rotting corpse.
  • The Unintelligible: Due to having been dead and mummified, he can't speak properly or clearly.

    Doctor Gerbil 
Voiced by: John R. Dilworth

A vacuum salesman who actually uses his products to capture people for experiments with his many products.

A microscopic alien who tried to prevent the Bagges from fixing the sun.

  • Gonk: He's pretty ugly.
  • Knight Templar: He believes that Earthlings have no right to mess with the natural order of outer space, even if it's for good intentions.
  • Mind Control: He hijacks Muriel's brain to sabotage their mission.
  • Solar CPR: His episode centered around resuscitating the Sun.

    Katz's Mutant Jam 
Voiced by: ???

A recipe of sentient jam that Katz cooks up in order to terrorize his rival in a cook-off, Muriel.


    Monks 
Voiced by: Arnold Stang (Monk Leader)

A clan of hooded men who guard the Hat of Gold Eustace tried to get his mitts on in one episode.


  • Eyes Always Shut: It's not clear if they're doing that on purpose or they're suppose to be some sort of East Asian sect.
  • Fat Bastards: Perhaps implied that they are very gluttonous for people who chose an ascetic way of living.
  • Gag Nose: All of them have bulbous noses that poke rather conspicuously out of their hoods.
  • Gonks: They're pretty odd-looking even for this show.
  • Hypocritical Humor: They hate vanity, but as shown at the end of the episode, they are rather vain.

    The Captain 
Voiced by: ???

A mean-spirited captain who mans the ship the Bagges use to see Carmen the sea monster (see below). Little do the Bagges know he's trying to capture Carmen.


  • Ax-Crazy: He's obsessed with hunting a sea monster who is actually harmless.
  • Beard of Evil: Like a pirate stereotype, he has a beard.
  • Con Man: He offers a free peaceful river cruise to the Bagge family, only to have them shanghaied into becoming his crew.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He is hammy to the point of drooling.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Wouldn't look like a pirate without an eyepatch.
  • Hook Hand: Seriously he is like a sketch from a child's drawing book about pirates.
  • Jerkass: He abuses his crew, especially Courage. He's also a jerk for trying to kill Carmen.
  • Nice Hat: As expected, he wears a pirate hat.
  • Pirate: He turns out to be a river pirate, rather than a cruise boat captain.
  • Seadog Beard: He's a sea captain with a beard.
  • Talk Like a Pirate: What else could he talk like, a nanny?

    Kangaroo Monster 
Voiced by: Lionel G. Wilson (Kangaroo Eustace), Marty Grabstein (Kangaroo Courage)

A giant, prehistoric kangaroo. In one episode, Eustace and Courage turn into these after receiving bone transplants from the remains of this ancient creature.


  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: The Kangaroo Monster is gigantic. Kangaroo Eustace even gets to kidnap Muriel and go on a rampage through cities around the world.
  • Kangaroo Pouch Ride: Eustace carries Muriel in his pouch at one point.
  • Takes One to Kill One: Courage turns himself into a kangaroo monster to fight Eustace.
  • Transformation Horror: A prehistoric kangaroo bone being surgically transplanted into Eustace was the cause of everything.
  • Villainous Legacy: The Kangaroo Monster itself has already become extinct; the main conflict in the episode centers on Eustace becoming the Kangaroo Monster as a result of the surgical implant.

    The Alien 
Voiced by: ???

An alien who tries to extract the essence of kindness from Muriel for his master in one episode.


    The Whip 
Voiced by: Lionel G. Wilson

    Jeeves Weevil 
Voiced by: ???

A rather gentlemanly anthropomorphic weevil who treats his hosts seemingly well, but he actually drinks their vital fluids slowly to feed himself. If you're a Dragon Ball Z fan, it reminds you a lot of a certain other nightmarish insect-like creature. Only Weevil's is even slower.


  • Affably Evil: He acts very polite.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: He's a 6-foot-tall insect. After Courage defeats him, he shrinks down into a normally tiny weevil.
  • Big Eater: Besides feeding on human body fluids, he also seems to enjoy boiled broccoli, to the extent that he'll eat it even if it's rancid and been between his toes for a week.
  • The Butler Did It: He's posing as a butler just so he can eat Eustace and Muriel.
  • Catchphrase: "I don't want to impose..."
  • Con Man: He's most likely not actually a butler, just a rather sophisticated imposter.
  • Evil Brit: Sounds like a classic English gentleman.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Especially odd because he's wearing full evening dress otherwise. Just no pants.
  • Horror Hunger: He drains Eustace and Muriel of their body fat and blood, which gradually causes them to shrivel up into emaciation (with Eustace eventually crumbling into a pile of dust).
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Courage tricks him into rather grossly drinking his own body fat, turning him into a harmlessly small bug.
  • The Jeeves: His name is even "Jeeves Weevil".
  • Lean and Mean: With blood though he satisfies his Horror Hunger.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a top hat.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has red eyes.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: He dresses like a quintessential gentleman, aside from the fact that he's really a big bug.
  • Smug Snake: He never loses his smarmy tone or haughty confidence, except at the very end when Courage finally figures out how to beat him.
  • Wicked Cultured: His refined dress and manners are just a cover for the fact that he's a life-stealing insect.

  • Catchphrase: "ICKETT?! ICKETT BAGGE?!"
  • Evil Is Hammy: He's not all that evil, just a little too intense with his grudge against Ickett. But he sure is dramatic.
  • Expy: An inversed expy of Captain Ahab due to being a whale who's obsessed with getting even with a human who took something from him. In this case, he is satisfied when he gets his accordion back. At which point Ma Bagge turns into the Ahab to get it back.
  • Large Ham: Both literally and figuratively in this case, as he's dramatic in speech and also very huge, being a whale and all.
  • Sand Is Water: For him, sand is possible to swim through like water.

    Dr. Zalost

An depressed scientist who created cannonballs that can put anybody in a negative mood. He uses his moving tower that has tons of cannons to fire them around town. He has a pet rat that he simply calls Rat.

  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He notably loses his red eyes when he loses his depression.
  • Sad Scientist: But he just wants a hug.
  • Sore Loser: He and Courage get into a round of Hangman. Courage manages to correctly guess the word. He growls that Courage cheated and fires a cannon at him. (To clarify, it was a four letter word with two "O"s as vowels and he had a cannon as an obvious clue).
  • Trademark Favorite Food: According to him, plums were already this before he ate Muriel's.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Because of his extreme depression, he decides that everyone else in Nowhere should become as miserable as he is.
    "If I can't be happy, then no one can be happy!"
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His is a rather sickly red-violet color.
  • You Said You Would Let Them Go: Despite the mayor paying Zalost over $33 billion dollars, Zalost goes against his word to turn the people of Nowhere back to normal. It is less out of malicious lying but the rationale that the money didn't help make him happy.

    Rat 
Voiced by: Arnold Stang

Dr. Zalost's assistant.

  • Minion with an F in Evil: Inverted. He's pretty good at doing Zalost's dirty work, but he's awful at doing the one thing that Zalost really wants him to do: giving hugs.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Just like his master. Unlike his master, he keeps them when he's turned good.
  • Rodents of Unusual Size: He's pretty large for a rat to begin with, being about the same size as Courage. After getting hit with one of Zalost's unhappy cannonballs, he grows into a huge monster. But after swallowing some happy plums, he shrinks down to a baby.
  • Silent Snarker: Never says a word, but his contempt for Zalost is made perfectly clear by the annoyed groaning sounds he makes.
  • You Dirty Rat!: A rat assisting Dr. Zalost in robbing everyone of happiness.

  • Fat Bitch: Maria is as obese as Muriel, but has none of her genuine niceness.
  • Meaningful Name: Mano is a disembodied hand, and his name is Spanish for "hand". Likewise, the duo's surname, "Ladrones", is Spanish for "thieves".
  • Outlaw Couple: Maria and Mano are a pair of married criminals.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Maria's Muriel disguise shouldn't have fooled anyone due to her beauty mark, lack of glasses, dark skin, and reddish eyes, yet everyone believes Muriel committed the crime due to Maria leaving behind several of Muriel's personal belongings at the scene of the crime.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Maria. Though her eyes are more of an orangish-red, it's still close enough to count as this trope.

    Mecha-Courage 
Voiced by: ???

A robot half-sphere with a color scheme like Courage's, made by Di Lung in order to make "better dog". It does everything right that Courage can do. Courage challenges it to a fight when it starts ruining and taking over his life, and wins by pure endurance and determination.


  • Always Someone Better: As Di Lung boasts, Mecha-Courage can beat Courage at anything. Subverted as it is a machine, and it has to run out of juice sooner or later.
  • Catchphrase: Its monotone 'barking': "BOW-WOW."
  • Evil Counterpart: A mechanical Courage without any of the love of the real Courage.
  • Jerkass: It has no remorse for any of Courage's pain, beating him within an inch of his life. To the point where it's arguably one of the most hateful villains on the show.
  • Robot Dog: Designed to be a perfect "dog", despite barely looking like one.
  • Robot Me: A robotic counterpart to Courage. Although the only real parallels between the two are their color schemes.

  • Ridiculously Cute Critters: Especially when they're watching a movie with Muriel.

    The Sandman 
Voiced by: ???

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has blue-gray skin.
  • Badass Cape: A high-collared affair that looks really cool when he flies with it.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When Courage discovers the Sandman stole Muriel's sleeping sand, he refuses to let the Sandman go to sleep until he returns it to Muriel by blocking the Sandman from his bed. Sandman complains the bed's not big enough for both of them.
    • Ironically, the bed looks really big and seems to have more than enough area for both of them in such a scenario.
  • Domino Mask: A classic, eyes-whited-out version. Who he'd need to protect his identity from is an open question.
  • Evil Brit: Subverted. He's not evil, he just wants to be able to sleep.
  • Lean and Mean: Very thin and the antagonist of his episode. But he's not a bad guy; he just really wants to get some sleep.
  • Nice Hat: A pointy wizard-esque hat.
  • Nice Shoes: A pair of pointy elfin shoes.
  • Noodle People: It's particularly notable when he flies, and his whole body flaps in the wind like a limp noodle.
  • Pointy Ears: Much like everything else on him, really. It's meant to give him a fey, elfin look.
  • The Sleepless: His scheme is mainly because he can't sleep himself.
  • Smug Snake: He comes off this way when Courage meets him, mostly because he's a little pissed that he was woken up from his first sleep in years.

  • Bald of Evil: He doesn't have much hair on his head.
  • Bizarre Human Biology: The guy has a point about living longer with his lifestyle: He claims to be 193 years old. He even required sludge to drink to fully recover from his plane crash injuries. The problem is that when he tries to make other people adapt to his way of living, he doesn't seem to realize such a lifestyle only benefits him and him alone.
  • Catchphrase: "Live long like Conway!"
  • Charlie Brown Baldness: He has a few odd strands of hair here and there.

  • Hypocritical Humor: In the beginning, she said that acting like a human was "uncivilized", but towards the end, she was seen sitting on a chair and watching TV.

  • Smug Snake: She has the audacity to send the Bagges off to be "civilized" and then move into their house and lounge around.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He's Eustace with blue skin.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Eustace follows Mr. Nasty to star in their own TV show at the end of the episode. Eustace, enjoying the money earned from his counterpart's popularity, dared him to "take your best shot". The response?

  • Meaningful Name: He is definitely nasty.

    Elisha and Eliza Stitch 
Voiced by: Fran Brill

Siamese twins who try to get Muriel to join their quilt club. And by "join their club" we mean "become a part of their magic quilt".


  • Ambiguously Human: They look human-ish, but they've been around unchanged since at least the caveman days and have the ability to sew human women into their demonic quilt, which calls into question as to what they really are.
  • And I Must Scream: They trick women into getting embroidered on their quilt.
  • Conjoined Twins: Two heads who share the same body.
  • Con Artist: Their "quilt club" is really a demonic quilt that wants to assimilate people into itself.

  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Both of them are textbook examples of creepy people with dark hair and pail skin, complete with Raven Hair, Ivory Skin.
  • Finishing Each Other's Sentences: Multiple times in a single sentence, in fact. It's part of their twin motif.
  • For the Evulz: Their magic quilt doesn't seem to serve any really purpose; they're just doing it because they can. Although them trapping souls into the quilt might also be to preserve their immortality.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: They become trapped in their own magic quilt.
  • Lean and Mean: Their torso is a double-wide, but individually they're both rather skinny.
  • Meaningful Name: Quilters called "Stitch".

    Chief Wiki Wiki

A tribal chief who makes the Bagges's vacation to a tropical island difficult.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He and the rest of the island natives are blue.
  • Appease the Volcano God: Has the Bagges come to his island so he can throw Muriel into the volcano.
  • Fat Bastard: He tricks the Bagges into a vacation on his island just so he can throw Muriel into the volcano. Although, he's not the worst guy in the world; he's only doing it to save his island, and apologizes once the whole thing is over.
  • Fat Idiot: When the volcano starts going, he jumps to the conclusion that he has to offer it a human sacrifice. It has no basis in island tradition, and there's no indication that has ever worked before, that's just how his mind works.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Does not wear a shirt.

    The Beaver 
Voiced by: ???

A beaver whose giant dam flooded Nowhere.


  • Abusive Parents: His father wasn't very supportive of his interest in jazz music, to the point that he forced his son into abandoning his pursuits to work in construction.

  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: The construction company he works for is named "THAT DAM BEAVER".

  • Rodents of Unusual Size: Even for a beaver he's pretty big.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Initially only did dam work to appease his father, though obviously not happy about it. Courage re-ignites his love of jazz music.

    Windmill Vandals 
Voiced by: N/A

Ghostly horsemen who attack the Bagges should their windmill ever stop spinning.


  • Black Vikings: Vikings in America? In the Midwest? That farm for a living?
  • Cerebus Retcon: That windmill that's always by the farm apparently served no purpose other than as a visual gag. When these guys debut, we learn that it's the only thing keeping them from destroying the farm and killing the occupants.
  • Four Is Death: Four vandals, four blades on the windmill, four magic symbols to ward them off. Their episode is heavy on the symbolism.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: They bear a grudge against the Bagge Farm because the original owner broke their monopoly on milling.
  • Horny Vikings: Horny Vandals, in this case. If anything, that's even more historically inaccurate.
  • Losing Your Head: They non-fatally decapitate Courage, Eustace, and Muriel.
  • Negative Continuity: The windmill is destroyed several times before and after their appearance, but they only show up in their featured episode. However it maybe that the windmill blades have to stop turning first for the spell to take effect as the computer describes.

  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Their glowing red eyes are a sure sign that they're undead and up to no good.

A narcissistic snake who captured some slugs. Said slugs were vital in curing a disease Muriel had.

  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Courage manages to use his own venom to reanimate the snake scarecrows he was forcing the slugs to make. Then using the magic book to gain control of them and send them after Bayou. As Bayou was so vain, he couldn't bring himself to attack them.
    Big Bayou: Y-you're all me! I can't do this to me! (gets tackled)
  • It's All About Me: He inserts the word "me" into almost every other sentence, so it's obvious he only cares about himself.
  • Narcissist: Dude loves himself so much that when Courage brings his skins to life and sics them on Bayou, he can't bring himself to fight his likenesses and gets curb-stomped.
  • Nice Hat: He's got a pretty nice tophat.
  • Pun: He makes a pun at one point.
    Big Bayou: As we say in the bayou, "Bye You!"
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: A voodoo witch doctor snake who enslaved a colony of slugs.

    The Goat 
Voiced by: ???

The lone guardian of a magic spring which dried up thanks to abuse by humans.


  • Anti-Villain: Type II: His grudge against humanity is obviously justified, but he still takes it out on poor Courage and Muriel because by that time he sees all people as the same.
  • Extreme Omni-Goat: Averted. He is never seen eating, so the stereotype of goats being capable of eating anything inedible never comes up.
  • Green Aesop: His episode gives the moral that people should not be greedy and destroy natural habitats.
  • Humans Are Bastards: Considering what happened, you can't blame him for having an unfavorable view on humans.
  • Last of His Kind: He's the only one left because the other goats that lived on the mountain were thrown off it by tourists, especially Horst.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Ironically, the brutal beating he gives Courage is what helps restore the spring.

  • Evil Is Hammy: His tone is always loud and dominating.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a deep voice.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Wears a white tank top, but no pants.
  • Gang Bangers: His gang are a bunch of lowlife punks who do dirty jobs for money. This doesn't prevent him from having a high opinion of himself and their lifestyle.
  • Jerkass: A disturbingly realistic jerk too, which makes him stand out. Threatening Bunny with violence if he even smells Kitty further cements this.
  • Knight of Cerebus: He's a lot scarier than most other villains, since he's more of a realistic evil.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Has red eyes that make him even scarier.

  • Triangle Shades: The Trainer's sunglasses are triangular.

    William the Water Dragon 
Voiced by: ???

A dragon who appears in the episode "Food Of The Dragon". He devours Eustace and threatens to eat Muriel and Courage unless Courage can teach him how to fly. He chases after Courage and Muriel and discovers that he's actually a water-dwelling dragon (which is why he cannot fly). Oh, and he takes Eustace out of his own stomach.


  • Evil Brit: Subverted. He has the accent, but he's not really a bad guy.
  • Long-Lost Relative: He has a brother that is also a water dragon, whom he reunites with at the end of his episode.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Turns out, the reason he can't fly is because he's a water dragon who got separated from his family as a baby, and was raised by flying dragons.
  • To Serve Man: Well he is a dragon. Subverted in that he was just going along with what his foster family does. When he tastes fish for the first time and likes it, he admits he didn't really like the taste of humans.

    Son of the Chicken from Outer Space 
Voiced by: ???

The son(s) of the villain from the pilot of the series. They are conjoined triplets who have 3 heads consisting of a leader, the smart one (who tends to flash a camera), and an idiot one. They are sent down by their mother to Nowhere to take revenge for the death of their father by killing Courage. If they don't kill him, they are told that they can't come back home.


    The Creature in the Wall 
Voiced by: ???

A creature living in a sewer that the Bagges fell down in that forces them to provide entertainment.


  • Artist Disillusionment: In universe as he was once an entertainer himself, but became disgusted at seeing other artists selling themselves out solely for fame and fortune rather then just doing it for the love of it. So much so he... somehow became an ulcer in his own stomach.
  • Blob Monster: He's essentially a giant ulcer.
  • Body Horror: He was once a normal guy whose body somehow turned inside out.
  • Caustic Critic: Exaggerated, since he actually kills acts that displease him.
  • Human All Along: He was once an entertainer whose contempt for the greed and materialism of others caused him to become a monster.

    The Librarian 
Voiced by: ???

A librarian who curses the Bagges due to an extremely overdue library book.


  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: A glasses-wearing Scary Librarian who charges exorbitant overdue fees and curses you if you don't pay up.
  • Lean and Mean: Impossibly thin, and way crueler than a librarian ought to be.
  • Magic Librarian: She casts a curse on the overdue library book, so Eustace and Muriel get paper-cuts from it, and they transform into characters from the book.
  • Mouth of Sauron: The lion statues in her library speak with ominous tones of voice.
  • Scary Librarian: Seriously return your book on time and pay your fee... or else.
  • The Silent Bob: She doesn't speak, but her ability to make her point is helped out by the signs around her and two talking lion statutes.
  • The Voiceless: With the exception of shushing Courage when he's too loud.

    The Cruel Veterinarian 
Voiced by: ???

Quite possibly the worst villain of the entire series, he stands out as Courage's biggest nightmare. Why? This screw-loose "vet" came up with a horrible idea back when Courage was a puppy - abduct dogs and rocket them off to the moon to make them into super breeds of space dogs. Tragically... He captured Courage's beloved mom and dad, and Courage himself, with plans to send them into space. Although Courage's parents came to the rescue, the doctor sealed them up in a rocket with a one-way trip to the moon in store. Courage was too terrified by this predicament to do anything but escape harm through a garbage chute- only to watch his parents be catapulted into space - in tears. Fortunately, a younger Muriel discovered the young pup in the dumpster and gave him a happy home. Many years later, the maniac doctor, albeit considerably older and balder, still continues his twisted plans... but now Muriel and Eustace get trapped in a rocket themselves.


  • Aborted Arc: Officially set up a storyline that would've brought the show's biggest question to resolution: Will Courage reunite with his long-lost parents? Because of the show's cancellation, this will never be resolved.
  • Bald of Evil: A huge heap of his hair falls out over the course of time since Courage grew from a pup to dog- which makes him look far scarier than we first saw him.
  • Evil Old Folks: One of the most evil in the series.
  • For Science!: His primary motive is to do what he does to advance science, to hell with the unethical problems that may come up.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears glasses and has absolutely no soul at all.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Remember every villain ever portrayed on this show and how Courage is often scared to death of them? This guy is the one who directly traumatized Courage as a child.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His own rocket and every dog he ever sent to the moon end up becoming his undoing.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Apparently sending a dog to the moon makes it strong. Well, considering what happens in the ending...
  • Jerkass: He's as unpleasant as he is evil.
  • Karmic Death: Maybe, maybe not. It's ambiguous whether or not the dogs on the moon killed him, but either way he finally got what he deserved in the end.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Arguably the darkest villain on the show behind Katz.
  • Mad Doctor: Calling him a "veterinarian" is stretching the term to its breaking point, since he deliberately sent Courage's parents into space.
  • Mad Scientist: He tries to make a race of super dogs by sending dogs into space.
  • No Name Given: Didn't have a name; of course, he sticks out so well amongst Courage's rogues gallery, he doesn't really need one.
  • "Oh, Crap!" Smile: He makes one when karma is about to bite him in the ass — literally!
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Has blood red eyes, as shown when his goggles are taken off, and is the only human character in the show to have them. Even when his goggles are on, you can still see tiny red dots in the middle of the lenses if you look closely.

    The "Perfect" Teacher 
Voiced by: Laura Berger

A perfectionist teacher who shows up in the Bagges home out of nowhere and forces Courage to be her student.


  • Control Freak: "AND DO IT PERFECTLY!"
  • Evil Brit: Her British accent fits into her "strict schoolmaster" theme.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Her melodramatic personality is just one of the many things that make her unpleasant.
  • Evil Teacher: She approaches Courage, and strictly trains him into becoming a perfect dog.
  • Final Boss: Technically the last villain faced in the show, although she was just another minor one-shot antagonist. Could count as the Post-Final Boss in a sense, given what the penultimate villain meant to the entire series, and how her appearance wraps up the last couple loose ends of Courage's self-doubts and insecurities.
  • The Heartless: She's the manifestation of Courage's self-esteem issues.
  • I'm Melting!: After Courage defeats her, she melts into a puddle.
  • Jerkass: Repeatedly tells Courage that his ways are not perfect.
  • The Perfectionist: She won't stand anything being imperfect. On Cartoon Network's online episode viewer, in the episode's description she was even named "The Perfectionist." It is unknown if that is her actual name.
  • Sadist Teacher: Her goal is to mentally break Courage into "perfection".
  • Shout-Out: Towards the end, her death is a nod to the demise of the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz.
  • The Spook: She appears out of nowhere to give Courage lessons, and only he appears to be aware of her existence. It's one of the indicators that she's a figment of his imagination.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When Courage manages to make something that is both perfect and imperfect at the same time (perfect in that it's accepting himself and imperfect as he doesn't do as she wanted him to), she keeps shouting 'that's not perfect!' over and over, breaking her facade of control and slowly melting down into nonexistence.
  • Wicked Cultured: A highly refined charm school teacher. And an evil manifestation of self-doubt.

    Clyde the Fog Spirit 
Voiced by: John R. Dilworth

The antagonist of the special CGI short film The Fog Of Courage. He's a phantom trying to retrieve a locket from (guess whose house) that contains a picture of his lover Cariana.


  • Determinator: He'll do anything to take back his old locket and for more than just its nostalgic/romantic/sentimental value but also in order rejoin Cariana in the afterlife.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Very obsessed with the memory of his late wife/lover/girlfriend Cariana. According to the Computer the locket works like a totem of sorts that keeps their souls together so claiming it splits them.
  • Ominous Fog: If you haven't guessed already, he's surrounded by mist when he appears.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: He appears as a giant face in a vast cloud of fog.
