    Major Glory 
Voiced by: Rob Paulsen

  • The Cape: Played for laughs - he tries to live up to his heroic principles, but tends toward obliviousness and narrow-mindedness.
  • Captain Patriotic: He even hawks a snack named "Justice Fruit Pies", and periodically recites lyrics or lines from famous American works (such as the national anthem, the Constitution, and the Pledge of Allegiance).
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Disappeared after the show was Un-Cancelled, along with the other Justice Friends. Though they did get an appearance in "Dexter's Wacky Races".
  • Compressed Vice: His appearance in the The Powerpuff Girls episode "Members Only" showed he displayed traits of sexist behavior that was never displayed in this show otherwise he wouldn't have made Dee Dee his sidekick nor allow Miss Spell to join the Justice Friends.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He wears dozens of masks to conceal his face.
    "When I say secret identity, I mean secret identity."
  • Eagleland: Type 1 (perhaps)
  • Expressive Mask: His true face is never seen due to it always being concealed by his iconic golden mask.
  • Expy: Captain America with Superman's powers and a personality similar to Space Ghost's.
  • Large Ham: Major Glory takes this Up to Eleven.
  • The Leader: He is the leader of the Justice Friends.
  • Military Rank Names: He has the title "Major" in his codename.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: His appearance in the The Powerpuff Girls episode "Members Only" makes him highly sexist towards the Powerpuff Girls by denying their request to join his team just because they are girls. His rude treatment of the Powerpuff Girls is also suggested to have ageist motivations because he also refuses to take them seriously just because they're young.
  • Shipper on Deck: While they should, technically, be enemies, he encourages Krunk's attempts to woo She-Thing.
  • Smug Super: He's pretty egotistical about his powers.
  • Team Dad: He may also be the Team Mom depending on the situation.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: His appearance in the The Powerpuff Girls episode "Members Only", where he is portrayed as both sexist and ageist towards the Powerpuff Girls and also isn't very nice to the other heroes on his team.

     The Infraggable Krunk 
Voiced by: Frank Welker

    Comrade Red 
Voiced by: Rob Paulsen

  • Dirty Communists: He's a stereotypical Communist Russian.
  • Expy: He is most likely based on Marvel Comics villain the Red Skull, since he's a supervillain with "Red" in his name and is the main foe of Major Glory, himself a parody of the Red Skull's nemesis Captain America. The Russian theme may also be a nod to DC Comics character Red Star.
  • Evil Counterpart: He serves as a villainous version of Major Glory.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Appears among Major Glory and the other Dexter's Laboratory heroes as a member of hero team A.W.S.M. in The Powerpuff Girls episode "Members Only".

  • Dating Catwoman: In spite of being on opposite sides in the war against good and evil, she and Krunk fall in love with each other.
  • Distaff Counterpart: She is essentially a female version of Krunk.
  • Evil Counterpart: For all intents and purposes, she's an evil equivalent to Krunk.
  • Expy: She's what She-Hulk would be like if she were evil, dumb, and not related to the Hulk.

  • Expy: A blatant Batman spoof. His origin even involves losing his parents after leaving a movie theater, albeit not in a way that gets them killed.
  • Manchild: He is self-described as "a mere child of 30".
  • Mr. Fixit: Much to his displeasure, the Justice Friends only let him join their team as their resident handyman, summoning him whenever they need him to repair something.
  • Nerd Glasses: He's socially inept and he wears glasses.
  • Raised by Wolves: Parodied. After his parents were scared away by rats when he was old enough to live on his own, the same rats took him in as one of their own.

    Capital G 
Voiced by: Tom Kenny ("Rasslor"), Greg Eagles ("Last But Not Beast")

  • Expy: Is likely based on Marvel's Black Goliath, being an African American with size-changing powers.
  • Sizeshifter: He usually uses his power to become gigantic, but at one point shrunk to try and extract Krunk's aching tooth.

    Disgruntled Postman 
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

  • Ax-Crazy: He attempted to mail a bomb to the President of the United States.
  • Going Postal: He's a criminal who dresses like a postal worker and is completely crazy.
  • Practically Joker: He's a rather obvious Joker parody because he's an insane criminal who has chalk-white skin, green hair, red lips, and a manic grin.

How well does it match the trope?
