Maru

    In General 
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: Their architecture is a pastiche of Ancient Mesopotamian and Ottoman, and their sound motif is Arabic, giving them a generic "foreign Middle East" feel to them. Their naming conventions however are rather mundanely English, not to mention that the Maruvian people all have English accents.

    Dagmar (SPOILERS) 

Dagmar (formerly Queen Dagmar of Dreamland; née Princess Dagmar of Maru)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dagmar.jpg
Voiced by: Sharon Horgan

King Zøg's first wife and Bean's mother, who has been deceased for years.

WARNING: Significant spoilers from the end of Season 1 and onwards follow.


  • 100% Adoration Rating: Dagmar was and is loved by everyone in Dreamland, from the royal court to the general populace. Oona is more or less seen as a sort of in-universe Replacement Scrappy, since she is considered weird and off-putting. Dagmar turns out to be more of a Villain with Good Publicity, given how she plotted to kill everyone in Dreamland.
  • Abusive Parents: In Season 2, after Bean puts two-and-two together and figures out Dagmar is the one really responsible for the destruction of Dreamland, Dagmar drops the loving mother routine and becomes much colder towards Bean, insulting her and threatening her into going along with a prophecy to make Dagmar more powerful whether Bean wants it or not. Part of which involves literally trying to screw a crown on her head, which gave her youngest brother, Jerry, brain damage when he was a kid.
  • Back from the Dead: When Bean uses the Elixir of Life on Dagmar, she's cured of her stone curse and returns to being flesh and blood again.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Downplayed, but at the end of Season 1, she has taken Bean with her, and has turned almost all of Dreamland into stone statues with her potion. In Season 2, the finale ends on a cliffhanger where Dagmar seemingly has Bean, Elfo and Lucci at her mercy.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: When Dagmar comes back, we soon learn that she isn't nearly as good a woman as Zog or Bean remembered her to be. She turns out to be Evil All Along, having tried to poison her husband and take Bean away from him.
  • Cain and Abel: A sister on brother variant. Not only did she and her siblings give their youngest brother, Jerry, permanent brain damage by screwing the crown of Maru on his head as a child, but when Jerry turns against them to save Bean, Dagmar murders him by caving in his skull with a hammer. Even Cloyd thinks it was extreme.
  • Connected All Along: At the beginning of part 2, it's revealed that she originates from the empire of Maru, being the sister of Emperor Cloyd and the Enchantress.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Dagmar does seem to deeply love Bean, even if she's manipulating her daughter and using her as a pawn in her schemes. On the other hand, it's far more dubious if she ever actually cared about Zog; even though they did seem very happy and madly in love, she still doesn't hesitate to attempt murdering her husband twice, though she tried to claim that it's Nothing Personal.
    • In Season 2, any care she has for Bean becomes far more questionable. Once her true nature is revealed, not only does she become much more colder and abrasive towards Bean but she says she specifically conceived her to fulfill a vague prophecy that'll grant Dagmar and her siblings more power, and she's willing to literally screw a crown onto Bean's head to make it happen, the same crown she used on her younger brother, Jerry, which gave him permanent brain damage.
  • Evil Brit: Her accent sounds distinctly English, and she's definitely a villain.
  • Evil Costume Switch: After she comes back and it's clear that she is the villain, she now dons a red dress and her hair is loose.
  • Evil Counterpart: Ultimately she's this and a foil to King Zog, at least when it comes to their parental relationship with Bean. While Zog is an aggressive, short-tempered jerk who easily loses his patience with anyone around him, ultimately he does deeply care about his daughter and other family members. On the other hand Dagmar is, at least on the surface, a very calm, patient and pleasant woman who gives Bean as much affection as she wants, but beneath it she's a cold-hearted sociopath who selfishly manipulates her daughter, and can easily betray any of her family members without remorse.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Turns out she'd been trying to petrify Zog and manipulate Bean for her evil plans. Once she's resurrected, Dagmar starts turning everyone else to stone, before absconding with an oblivious Bean to her homeland.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: Dagmar makes vague comments about a big and ancient conflict and that it's Bean's destiny to take part in it, which she is trying to ensure she does; to get that, she destroys Dreamland, but her end goals are unknown. She shares an agenda with Cloyd and The Enchantress, her siblings. Season two drops a little more information, saying she needs Bean to fulfill a prophecy that'll restore her family's fame and fortune and pay a debt to hell that they're overdue on.
  • Hoist by Their Own Petard: Dagmar was actually the one who poisoned the wine, and it was intended for Zog. However Bean accidentally switched their drinks around, leading to Dagmar being turned to stone instead.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: She has a very slim yet curvaceous physique.
  • Impossibly-Low Neckline: When she elects to wear her corset by itself it bares the entirety of her shoulders, and plunges dangerously low over her cleavage.
  • It Runs in the Family: Evil. Also, murderous psychopathic insanity.
  • Jerkass: Among her favorite activities are going to a bar and insulting anyone who fails to play darts properly. Oh, and also backstabbing her own husband while killing all of her kingdom's subjects.
  • Kick the Dog: Before she moves on to petrifying the kingdom, one of her early victims is Bunty, who was trying to warn Bean about Oona's declaration of revenge.
  • Knight of Cerebus: While the show was already a dark-yet-goofy Black Comedy, Dagmar's return results in the deaths of almost everyone in the kingdom, including most of the recurring characters. This continues in season two; while Zog's frequent executions are played for laughs, and Cloyd and the Enchantress are given amusing moments, Dagmar is the one person whose actions never fall into Laughably Evil despite the surrounding humor.
  • Made of Iron: Bean accidentally drops a lit candle into a room Dagmar is standing in which is flooded with alcohol. Not only does Dagmar survive the explosion and have enough strength to attack Bean, but she also survives Jerry hitting her on the head with a hammer, something that Jerry himself doesn't survive.
  • Missing Mom: Dagmar died when Bean was a little girl, due to drinking a magical poison that turned her into stone. However, Dagmar is eventually reunited with her daughter, after Bean revives her with the Elixir of Life 15 years later.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She has a great body, and wears a lot of outfits designed to show it off. Even Bunty is impressed by her cleavage.
  • Mystical White Hair: Much like her daughter, her hair is white. And she definitely knows how to use magic, being able to create a deadly potion to destroy Dreamland, and is implied to have some kind of supernatural powers as well.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Meta-example; she apparently shares her name with the real-life Queen Dagmar of Bohemia.
  • Nothing Personal: She brushes off her attempted murder of Zog as this, saying that her end goal is much bigger than them, and that it's about Bean's participation in a conflict that had been going on for centuries. She seems to actually like Zog, but considers her mission, whatever it is, more important.
  • Of Corsets Sexy: Dagmar is a striking woman, who frequently wears corsets as part of her outfit. Sometimes she wears just the corset as a top.
  • Pet the Dog: Once she learns Elfo died in the attempt to get the Elixir of Life, she insists he be given a full funeral. It's the nicest thing she does.
  • Poisoned Chalice Switcheroo: Due to a very young Bean accidentally switching their wine glasses, Dagmar instead consumed a magical poison that was intended for Zog. Doubles as Hoist by Their Own Petard, when it's revealed that Dagmar was responsible for poisoning the drink in the first place.
  • Posthumous Character: She's been dead for about 15 years prior to the start of the series. Until Bean brings her Back from the Dead.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Little did Zog or Bean even know, keeping Dagmar as a statue would've been much better for Dreamland. After she is revived, Dagmar continues where she left off on her evil plans from 15 years ago. It's possibly implied that Cloyd and the Enchantress were indeed plotting and hoping for Dagmar's return to the world.
  • Self-Made Orphan: She casually admits to murdering both her parents when she was Bean's age as she's goading Bean about hesitating to kill her.
  • Siblings in Crime: She's revealed to be the sister of Cloyd and the Enchantress, and they're all working together to fulfill some dark prophecy. It turns out Jerry is also one of their siblings, but he makes a Heel–Face Turn shortly into season two and Dagmar kills him for it.
  • The Sociopath: Dagmar's able to put on a convincing mask of a loving wife and mother but underneath it she's a consummate liar, a master manipulator, and ultimately a hollow human being who only cares about herself. She murdered her parents and youngest brother, attempted to murder her husband, turned all of Dreamland to stone, and reveals that even her own daughter is just a tool she's using to amass more power for herself, all while displaying a chilling lack of empathy for anyone she hurts.
  • Supernaturally Young Parent: Due to spending the past 15 years as a statue, Dagmar hasn't aged a day until Bean revives her. Although Dagmar still looks a bit older than her daughter, the difference looks more like several years rather than a few decades.
  • Taken for Granite: She was poisoned and turned to stone in the backstory. And then proceeds to do the same to nearly everyone in the entire kingdom after she's brought back.
  • Til Murder Do Us Part: Dagmar intended to destroy Dreamland. The first step was to kill Zog, which she tried to do by poisoning his wine.
  • Villainous Rescue: She rescues Bean, Elfo, and Luci from being burned at the stake, however given that she still has plans for Bean regarding Maru's pact with Hell she almost certainly has an ulterior motive.
  • Walking Spoiler: Dagmar's involvement in the plot as well as what happened to her are only revealed to the viewer in the last two episodes of Season 1, and both episodes that feature her are Wham Episodes full of revelations and plot twists.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Dons white hair, but is later revealed to be Evil All Along.
  • Wicked Witch: Bean refers to her as one.

    Cloyd and Becky 

Emperor Cloyd of Maru, and Princess Rebecca "Becky" of Maru (AKA The Enchantress)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cloydenchantress.png
"And so, the demonic binding begins."
Voiced by: Rich Fulcher and Lucy Montgomery

Mysterious figures from the distant land of Maru, who have taken a sinister interest in Bean; they were the ones who sent Luci to Bean as a wedding present, with the goal of corrupting her to fulfill their plans.


  • Affably Evil: Cloyd and the Enchantress seem rather close and chummy with each other, and seem to respect each other at all times.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: At the end of Season 1, Dreamland is destroyed just as they planned, by the hands of Dagmar, who is implied to be working with or for them, and Luci has corrupted Bean even more than what they had predicted. They even happily toast at the end of "The Limits of Immortality".
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: They're implied to be the main antagonists of the series (or at least the first major story arc), though so far they have yet to play a more active role in the conflict, always lurking in the shadows during Season 1. Season 2 reveals they're Dagmar's siblings and subservient to her, making them Co-Dragons.
  • Big Brother Bully: To Jerry, who's revealed to be their little brother. Along with Dagmar, they gave him brain damage as a child by screwing a crown onto his head, and then spent the rest of his life insulting him, abusing him and using him like a servant.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: They're Obviously Evil, actively seek to turn Bean to the dark side, and they're plotting the downfall of Dreamland. They even sit on dark chairs.
  • The Chessmaster: Whatever plans they have in mind for Bean and Luci, it seems to be for some sort of (sinister) agenda that isn't exactly known yet.
  • Co-Dragons: They're revealed to be this to Dagmar in addition to being her siblings.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Though Cloyd and the Enchantress have been abusing Jerry his entire life, Cloyd expresses shock when Dagmar flat-out murders him.
    Cloyd: Jeez, Dag. He was our littlest brother.
    Dagmar: Now you are so shut up.
  • Evil Brit: Both of them speak with English-sounding accents, as befitting for a pair of villainous aristocrats.
  • Evil Laughter: Once Bean gets her hands on the Elixir of Life. Well, the Enchantress does. Cloyd... not so much (in his case, it's more like Evil Chuckling).
  • Evil Overlord: Cloyd is implied to be this. He rules as the Emperor of Maru, which was responsible for releasing a cursed potion that destroyed the rival kingdom of Cremorrah.
  • Evil Sorceress: The Enchantress is a skilled magic user. She controls the Oracle Fire that she and Cloyd use to spy on Bean and her allies, and the Enchantress also cast a spell that forced Luci to possess Bean's body.
  • Evil Uncle: Cloyd is this to Bean, and likewise Becky is an Evil Aunt to her as well. They both try to force their niece to wear a metal crown that would've likely given her permanent brain damage.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Big Jo is an antagonist like them, despite not considering himself evil, but they are at odds with him. In his first appearance, Cloyd calls him "that accursed weirdo" and clearly considers him a nuisance to their plans. They even send an assassin against him in "The Limits of Immortality".
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Cloyd wears a rather modern-looking pair of Nerd Glasses.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: Their end goal, as well as their allegiance are hidden and only lightly hinted at by vague comments. In fact it's not revealed which kingdom they're in up until "The Limits of Immortality", which reveals that they are from Maru, and have sinister plans for all of Dreamland. Their enigmatic goals are lampshaded in "Princess of Darkness".
    Cloyd: Oh no, they're onto us.
    Jerry: They'll know exactly what we're up to.
    Enchantress: You don't even know what we're up to!
    Jerry: Every day you say you'll tell me and you never do.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Season 2 reveals they're Dagmar's siblings and Bean's uncle and aunt.
  • Nerd in Evil's Helmet: Cloyd is a much less serious character than the Enchantress, despite being the evil emperor of a mysterious civilization; what with how he burns his hands on the Oracle Fire, or dropping his Nerd Glasses when startled by his own assassin, before demanding in a very high-pitched voice that he not do that.
  • Nice Hat: Cloyd wears a purple headdress, while the Enchantress wears a red headdress/mask.
  • Omniscient Council of Vagueness: Throughout the first season, we frequently see them watching events from afar and discussing how their plan is progressing, without ever going into detail about what that plan entails. Part of it involves binding Luci to Bean, the acquisition of the Elixir of Life, and the destruction of Dreamland.
  • Sleep Cute: They fall asleep next to one another at the end of the first episode.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: They're never seen apart, as they watch on Bean's and Luci's progress.
  • Tom the Dark Lord: Season 2 reveals the Enchantress's name is... Becky. Though she prefers to go by Rebecca now.
  • Uncertain Doom: Bean accidentally blows up a room they're in. Dagmar soon shows up, scorched but none the worse for wear, but Cloyd and the Enchantress's fate isn't given.

    Jerry 

Jerry (AKA Prince Jerry of Maru)

Voiced by: David Herman

The dimwitted assistant working for Cloyd and the Enchantress.


  • Animals Hate Him: Cloyd makes him feed the peacocks they keep, even when Jerry notes they "don't like" him.
  • Butt-Monkey: Jerry is regularly abused and treated like a slave by Cloyd, Becky, and Dagmar. It's even worse because he's their youngest brother.
  • Character Death: He dies after being hit in the head with a hammer by Dagmar.
  • Childhood Brain Damage: His siblings tried to put the evil crown of Maru on his head when he was a kid, which is what's caused his stupidity.
  • The Ditz: He's not very bright, due to Childhood Brain Damage caused by wearing the metal crown.
  • Fat Idiot: He's obese and rather dense.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Not that he's that much of a villain to begin with, only serving the villains because he's brain-damaged and they're his elder siblings, but after Bean befriends him, he turns against them to save her.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He's murdered by Dagmar when he tries to snuff out the fire that can stop her, Cloyd and Becky from locating Bean.
  • Hidden Depths: After his death, he spends most of his time in Heaven having serious debates with God about morality. He might have been healed of his brain damage in Heaven.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: What he lacks in intelligence or sanity, he makes up for it by being a pretty decent person, especially compared to his older siblings.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Whatever it is Cloyd and the Enchantress are up to, they never tell him, no matter how often he asks.
  • Long-Lost Relative: He turns out to be Dagmar's brother, and is thus Bean's uncle.
  • Manchild: He's very childlike and simpleminded due to his Childhood Brain Damage, which turned him into "a permanent 10-year-old" as Dagmar describes him.
  • Metaphorgotten: His comparison of Zog and coconuts is... off.
    "He's like a coconut. Hard on the outside, but on the inside... coconut."
  • Minion with an F in Evil: He works for a pair of Card Carrying Villains, but Jerry himself isn't malicious in the slightest, he's just kind of dumb and easily pushed around.
  • Morality Pet: God seems to favor him, even damning Elfo to Hell for insulting him. To be fair, that might have been a Secret Test of Character.
  • Nice Guy: Jerry doesn't seem to have any mean bone in his body. He also quickly befriends his niece Bean, and demonstrates a strong moral compass when he tries to protect her from Cloyd, Becky, and Dagmar's attempts to force her into fulfilling that crazy prophecy. Not to mention that after his death, Jerry's soul ascends to Heaven and he becomes best friends with God Himself.
  • Not Too Dead to Save the Day: He seems to immediately die when Dagmar caves his skull in with a hammer. Later, when Dagmar and Bean are fighting, Jerry regains consciousness just long enough to knock Dagmar out with the same hammer before finally dying for real.
  • Odd Friendship: He strikes one up with God of all people, who becomes very fond of and protective of him.
  • Pet the Dog: He gets to go to Heaven after he dies, where he becomes pals with God Himself. That said, he's harshly critical of God's failings and doesn't hesitate to call him out.
  • Simpleton Voice: If you couldn't already tell that he looks kinda stupid.
  • Token Good Teammate: Among his siblings in the royal family of Maru, Jerry is the only one who is not evil at all. When Dagmar, Becky, and Cloyd attempt to screw a metallic crown of thorns into Bean's head, Jerry quickly tries to save his niece from being harmed. It's a pity that he ends up getting his skull bashed in with a hammer for his efforts.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: After Jerry goes to Heaven, he proceeds to berate God for all the misery and suffering inflicted on humanity.

Dankmire

    Oona 

Oona (formerly Queen Oona of Dreamland; née Princess Oona of Dankmire)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oona.jpg
Voiced by: Tress MacNeille (English), Teresa Ibarrola (Latin American Spanish), Mai Yoshikawa (Japanese)

King Zøg's second wife, stepmother of Bean, and mother of Derek. Originally an amphibian princess from Dankmire, she married Zøg after the death of Queen Dagmar.


  • Altar Diplomacy: She married Zog to secure a political alliance between the kingdoms of Dankmire and Dreamland.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has pale blue skin. Justified because she's not human.
  • Amicable Exes: Oona and Zog divorced but parted in friendly terms.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: It's hinted that she really does care about Zog deep down. She also offers to bring Bean with her on her pirate adventures after divorcing Zog.
  • Berserk Button: People mistaking her clade. When Dagmar says she didn't mean to "ruffle [Oona's] feathers", Oona flips out at what she thinks is an insult, in being mistaken for a bird, and slaps her.
    Oona: For the last time: they are gills, not feathers! I am not bird-type!
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: As a Dankmirian, she has quite a few traits in common with frogs and other amphibians. For example her Overly Long Tongue that she uses to eat insects with, her ability to Wall Crawl, is capable of breathing underwater and dislocating her joints and even the way she mates and reproduces (see below).
  • Bizarre Alien Reproduction: Oona seems to be ignorant of how human reproduction works; when she tries to give a sex talk to Bean, she tells her to just lay some eggs to be fertilized by her husband. It's anyone's guess how the hell she even managed to conceive a Half-Human Hybrid son with Zog.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Even by Dankmire standards, Oona just seems to be an utter weirdo. Other Dankmirians seen in the show, including the nobles and royal court, act like people who just happen to be blue-skinned amphibians.
  • The Comically Serious: Apparently, among Dankmirians, she's a laugh riot, despite never once losing her stone-cold demeanor.
    "I was class clown." (beat) "Is joke... Or is?"
  • Cute Monster Girl: She looks pretty good for a humanoid amphibian.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Her appearance seems to match her aloof personality.
  • Fantastic Arousal: When she sees Prince Guybert, frills on her neck extend, and her husband mutters that she never does that for him.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: She has three fingers on each hand. Note that her half-human son has five-fingered hands instead.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Subverted. "Dreamland Falls" starts implying that Oona has become a major antagonist, but her ultimate fate is unknown, and Dagmar is the one behind the petrifications. Subverted immediately thereafter.
  • Hidden Depths: Season 2 reveals that she's considerably more competent and reliable than she seems; she manages to pickpocket the Eternity Pendant from Dagmar, having realized it would be necessary to save the inhabitants of Dreamland - despite the fact that they'd hated her, blamed her for everything that went wrong, and given her no particular reason to care about them. She also takes control of a ship of pirates and shows her skill at swordfighting at sea, though this is partially because she can breathe underwater.
  • High on Catnip: Consuming snake root causes her to run around in circles yelling.
  • Ice Queen: She's certainly not a very warm, affable, or approachable person. This seems to be the main reason why she doesn't get along too well with Zog, let alone with Bean.
  • Interspecies Romance: She got married to the human king Zog, and bore him a hybrid son. Though of course, their whole marriage was a political arrangement rather than a love affair.
  • Ms. Fanservice: One of the more conventionally attractive characters, at least when she's not displaying Bizarre Alien Biology.
  • Overly Long Tongue: She catches a fly with her tongue like a frog.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Tries to give Bean a sex talk. Didn't go so well though.
    • Despite all their dislike for one another, she offers Bean a place with her pirate crew when she leaves Dreamland.
  • Pirate Girl: In Season 2 Oona has joined a crew of pirates, taking control of them after about five minutes.
  • The Quiet One: She's generally very quiet and reserved, and prefers to let Zog do the talking.
  • Rapunzel Hair: She has long black hair that touches the ground when she sits. Her hair also conveniently censors her naked body when she goes bathing.
  • Red Herring: In "Dreamland Falls", when random people in the castle start turning into statues, Zog and Bean immediately assume that Oona is evil and is plotting revenge for years of being mistreated by them. However, it turns out that Dagmar is responsible for these crimes.
  • Replacement Scrappy: In-Universe. Queen Dagmar was loved by everyone, and Oona is considered to be a pale comparison to her, being a Marriage of Convenience rather than love, and is generally considered off-putting, weird, and unlikable, and is also the target of quite a few jokes. The royal court keeps her around because she maintains peace with the Dankmirians, and is the mother of the heir to Dreamland's throne. Once Dagmar comes back, it's clear that Zog has basically forgot about Oona; and the royal court, while thinking of what to do, only wants to keep her for convenience, and some are even willing to kill her.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After getting a taste of a pirate's life at sea, she decides that she's done with enduring years of disrespect by Dreamland and wants to divorce Zog. She brings back the immortality pendant and helps restore Dreamland to show she's the better person, but delcines to return as queen.
  • Shown Their Work: In a lot of (lesser known) fairy tales, the hero or heroine's royal stepmother is often a magical humanoid (usually some type of Ogress or sorceress) whom the king only married to secure an alliance with her (usually hostile) people. Indeed, Dankmirians are very amphibian and barely on good terms with Dreamland (though for good reason), Oona is very aloof and cold toward Bean, and late Season 1 implies to use sinister magic. Subverted in Season 2, where it's revealed Dagmar was the evil one who framed Oona.
  • The Stoic: She does not express too much emotion most of the time, except when she gets angry, scared, or is high on drugs. Apparently, having an aloof and grim demeanor is very common among Dankmirians (though by no means all of them).
  • Took a Level in Kindness: After becoming a pirate, she eventually warms up and harbors no ill feelings to the people of Dreamland. She's also responsible for curing the people of Dreamland from their petrification.
  • Uncertain Doom: She's seen crawling around on the castle and sneaking during the last episode of Season 1, it's not clear whether she was a victim of Dagmar's potion when she spread it through the castle, though it is known, through the use of the crystal ball, that she is still in the castle. Later on it was revealed that she crawled into Dagmar's ship and tried to get to Bean, but Dagmar found her out. She was thrown overboard, but was unharmed given her ability to breathe underwater, and was later picked up by pirates.
  • Wall Crawl: She can climb up along walls, much like a gecko or salamander. She also prefers to sleep upside-down from the ceiling like a bat.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: At the end of the first season, Oona's whereabouts are unknown. She's last seen scurrying off into the depths of the castle, shortly before Dagmar turns everyone to stone. She later returns rescued by pirates after Dagmar throws her off her own ship.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Oona speaks with an accent that sounds vaguely Eastern European, probably to distinguish how she's a foreigner living in Dreamland. It may overlap with Vampire Vords. More confusingly however, not all Dankmirians have that same accent, and several of them even have outright American-sounding accents (including lower-class Dankmirians who sound like they came from the Deep South).
    Bean: Oona, can you tell me what to expect, and I'll try to decipher your accent?
  • Wicked Stepmother: Played with. She's not very close to Bean, who dislikes Oona and considers her to be a poor replacement for Dagmar. However, Oona is never shown to be outright cruel or abusive to Bean, at most she's guilty of simply being neglectful and indifferent.
    Bean: It turns out Oona was the cool one. You never appreciate your lizard stepmom until she becomes a sexy pirate, am I right?
  • Woman Scorned: After Dagmar returns to Zog's life, Oona instantly becomes extremely jealous of her. After the two fight during Elfo's funeral, things only get worse and spiral out of control from there. When Zog becomes suspicious of Oona's behavior and thinks she's out to get him, Oona overhears what she assumes to be a plan to murder her. Out of paranoia and rage, Oona vows to make Dagmar, Zog, and Bean "pay" for their mistreatment of her. Subverted in that she ended up being fine with them.

    Chazz 

Chazzzzz ("Chazz")

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chazz.png
"Have you ever been clamped naked to a slab by a lunatic that doesn't work for the spa?"
Voiced by: David Herman

A recurring Dankmirian man, who seems to have a new job whenever he appears.


  • Amazing Technicolour Population: His skin is blue because he's from Dankmire.
  • Berserk Button: "Don't rattle the clamps. It enrages me."
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: He attends Elfo's funeral, and is as saddened as everyone else.
  • Jerkass: He has an abrasive, passive-aggressive personality and likes to deliberately annoy people.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: First he shows up as a spa worker, then as an obnoxious waiter. Then as an obnoxious waiter at a different restaurant.
  • Obfuscating Insanity: He initially pretends to be an escaped lunatic from an asylum holding Zog captive. It's actually part of the spa treatment — irritating Zog back to health. The jerkassery is all real, though.
  • Person as Verb: Both he and Bean have used "Chazzed" as a word.
  • Spanner in the Works: Chazz manages to unwittingly sabotage Dankmire-Dreamland diplomatic relations by serving Bean some Dankmire schnapps, a single shot of which would be enough to make a person wasted, and he brings two, simply because he's a jerk.

    Dankmirian Hillbillies 

Dankmirian Hillbillies

Two farmers who live deep in the swamps of Dankmire. They kidnap Zog, Derek, Bean, Elfo, and Luci to feed them to a giant swamp monster.

Bentwood

    King Lorenzo and Queen Bunny 

King Lorenzo I and Queen Bunny of Bentwood

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lorenzobunny.png
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche (Lorenzo) and N/A (Bunny)

The monarchs of Bentwood, who are the parents (and uncle/aunt) of Guysbert and Merkimer.


  • Adipose Rex: Lorenzo is a rather stout and portly king, much like Zog.
  • Brother–Sister Incest: Lorenzo and Bunny are a married couple of siblings. Neither of them think this is wrong.
  • Lack of Empathy: Disturbingly enough, they don't seem to care that much when Guysbert's head gets impaled on a sword blade. Instead of even trying to help him get unstuck, they immediately move on to their Plan B for the wedding: send Merkimer as a replacement groom for Bean. Even after Guysbert is presumed dead (he's actually alive yet suffering in pain), his parents leave their own son to rot in a landfill next to the Dreamland castle.
  • The Napoleon: Hinted at with Lorenzo, who in his introduction is wearing ludicrously huge platform shoes just to bring himself up to Zog's height.
  • Royal Inbreeding: Because of their incestuous marriage, Guysbert and Merkimer are simultaneously both their sons and nephews.

    Prince Guysbert

A prince from Bentwood, and Bean's fiancé in an arranged political wedding, which is aborted due to an unfortunate accident involving him and a chair made of swords.


  • Arranged Marriage: King Zog chose Guysbert as a groom for his daughter Bean, in order to secure an alliance with the land of Bentwood. Unfortunately, Bean doesn't love this man and declares "NO!" at the prospect of marrying him.
  • Back for the Dead: After being dismissed as dead in the first episode, he returns near the end of the first season to die for real, to show that Elfo's blood doesn't work.
  • Brainless Beauty: Guysbert looks quite handsome (at least Oona seems to think so), however he's rather dimwitted; see Too Dumb to Live below.
  • Cain and Abel: Seems to be the nice and dumb brother to Merkimer's mean but smart brother.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Touted as the slayer of "that bird that flew into the room one time" by the Herald.
  • Famous Last Words: He happily exclaims "MY HEADACHE IS GONE!" before his brains fall out.
  • Hopeless Suitor: He seems to be completely fine with marrying Bean, however she doesn't reciprocate any of his approval at all.
  • Made of Iron: When Guysbert impales his head on the sword blade, he can only say "Owwwww" in the dullest expression of pain possible. But not only does he somehow survive this, he continues living with his head stuck for several more weeks, only complaining every now and then about his headache.
  • Oblivious Guilt Slinging: When seen again late in season one, he reveals that the thought of seeing Bean's lovely face again was what kept him going after he impaled himself. Bean looks visibly guilty about this.
  • Rasputinian Death: He impales himself through the head, spends several weeks not dying, then finally removes the sword from his head. His brain slides out of the hole in his skull, and he dies on the spot. For an added bonus, as he collapses, he stabs himself in the chest with the sword he just pulled out.
  • Royal Inbreeding: His parents are siblings, which would explain his idiocy.
  • Running Gag: Various characters mentioning his death, only for the camera to cut to him saying he's still alive, just in great pain.
  • Simpleton Voice: Played straight.
  • Too Dumb to Live: When Bean pulls off her wedding ring in an attempt to reject marrying Guysbert, he tried to pick it up from the floor. Unfortunately for him, it rolled under a piece of furniture adorned with sword blades, and he accidentally impales his head through it.
  • Undignified Death: Accidentally impaled himself on a throne of swords, survives for months on end, and when he's finally freed, his brain falls out.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He's introduced getting married to Bean, gets his head impaled on a throne of swords, and then is not seen again (apart from one off-gags) until he's Back for the Dead. This compared to his brother, who becomes a series regular.

"Flesh burn, demon return!"
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche

A professional exorcist and demon hunter. He's on a mission to rid the world of all demons.


  • Ambiguously Gay: Elfo mentions he and his sidekick Porky have a toxic relationship, but doesn't specify the nature of that relationship.
  • Ambiguously Human: Aside from being noticeably taller than the other humans, the man (seemingly) fell into a volcano and (apparently) survived with no burn wounds.
  • Anti-Villain: The first time he appears, he exorcises Luci and takes him to be killed along with dozens of other demons. And given they're, y'know, demons, he's not exactly the bad guy in the situation; aside from being a little too willing to risk killing Bean just to exorcise Luci from her earlier, or threatening to kill Elfo for getting in his way during the volcano confrontation. He even (unintentionally) calls himself a "villain" in his subsequent appearance, though he clarifies that he doesn't see himself as being evil.
  • Artificial Limbs: He gets a mechanical prosthetic after Bean and Elfo sliced off his original arm.
  • Badass Preacher: He's one of the best exorcists and demon hunters in the world, and knows how to handle himself in a physical fight.
  • The Comically Serious: Big Jo is a character more appropriate for a supernatural horror movie than a fantastic comedy cartoon. Big Jo tries to take himself seriously at all times, but his creepiness and tendency to scare people is played for laughs.
  • The Dreaded: Odval is reluctant to summon him, since Big Jo creeps him out. When Big Jo does appear, he scares everyone in the royal court (more than once).
  • Evil Priest: He's certainly very knowledgeable about holy scriptures, a useful tool for fighting demons with. Although his methods may be a bit too extreme.
  • Evil vs. Evil: When he returns in "The Limits of Immortality", he's searching for the Eternity Pendant, which puts him at odds with Cloyd's and the Enchantress' own goals, so Cloyd sends his best assassin to fight him.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Kind of, since the spelling "Jo" is usually short for female names. It is, however, used as a shortened form of Josef/Jozef in some Eastern European countries.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: No word on why he wants the Elixir of Life.
  • Hollywood Exorcism: He performs religious rituals to try removing Luci from possessing Bean. When that doesn't work, he resorts to more drastic measures.
  • Hunter of Monsters: He exorcises, captures, and kills demons for a living. While it's very understandable that he wants to exterminate these evil creatures, he doesn't care that Luci is (relatively) less malevolent than the average demon, and is also perfectly willing to kill victims of demonic possession if he can't find another way to exorcise them.
  • Kill It with Fire:
    • Big Jo lights Bean's bed on fire. While Luci points out that fire can't hurt demons, Jo explains that he's actually going to burn Bean to death so that Luci can't hide in her body anymore. This forces Luci to leave Bean's body and surrender himself to Jo to save her.
    • Later, Big Jo is seen destroying the demons he's captured by throwing them into a volcano. Oddly enough, this actually seems to kill demons despite fire having no effect on them.
  • Knight of Cerebus: In his second appearance in "The Limits of Immortality". Big Jo showcases to be more threatening and harder to get rid of than first thought, and also to have a large amount of knowledge about the deepest parts of the show's lore, that the main characters are not yet privy to. Following that episode, the show goes into a (relatively) darker and more serious tone.
  • Lean and Mean: He's very tall and slim, which makes him look even creepier than usual. He's also fully willing to burn Bean alive just to get to the demon inside her.
  • Necromancer: He's mentioned to have dabbled in this.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: Played for Laughs in a scene where he appears and disappears in time with the flashes of lightning from a thunderstorm. And then again when he teleports into a room as Zog unlocks and opens the door, without looking away from him.
  • Phrase Catcher: The forces of darkness keep referring to him as a "weirdo".
  • Villain Ball: Despite making fun of villains that tell their story to the heroes, he actually manages to grab this big time. When he knocks out Bean and Luci, he decides to kidnap them together with Elfo and take them into his hunt for the pendant, which again allows them to defeat him and get the pendant.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: All but explicitly declares himself this. In his second appearance, he first proudly states that he won't hold a Motive Rant like other villains, and then pauses to clarify that of course he doesn't see himself as a villain but thinks his goals are good.

    Sven 

Sven

Voiced by: David Herman

Sven is the Regional Manager of the Land Vikings, a ruthless gang of murderous bandits who pillage cities and towns. They seek immortality, beautiful women, convenient parking, and to wow the world with their smooth northern dance style.


  • Asshole Victim: Given the massive bloodbath that Sven and his men created in the castle, you can't really feel too sorry for them when Bean leads them falling to their deaths.
  • Ax-Crazy: Sven and the Vikings prove to be this by massacring (almost) everyone who was present in the castle party.
  • Disney Villain Death: Sven and all of his fellow Vikings are killed when Bean tricks them into running through the castle's trapdoor leading to the ocean. Bean wasn't even trying to kill them, as she was expecting them to survive hitting the water, but there was low tide...
  • Faux Affably Evil: Sven seems to be a smooth, charming man who knows how to have a pleasant conversation with Bean. He's also a ruthless, vicious marauder who has no qualms with mass-murdering all of Bean's party guests.
  • Horny Vikings: The Land Vikings are a twist on this trope. Instead of being a bunch of Norse pirate warriors who sail and plunder on the high seas, they're basically a bandit gang who roam around in boat-shaped vehicles on dry land, raiding cities along the way.
  • Immortality Seeker: Sven takes an interest when Elfo and Bean claim that they keep the Elixir of Life in the castle.
    "Vikings do not seek riches. We want immortality, that our names might live on a hundred years!"
  • Motive Decay: Initially, the Vikings just wanted to crash Bean's party and have some fun; and Sven also sought to have sex with Bean. Until Elfo mentions the Elixir of Life — then Sven changes his plans, goes on a murder spree, and takes over the castle in hopes of immortality.
  • Rape, Pillage, and Burn: The Land Vikings make a lifestyle out of this. Well, we don't see them do any raping or burning onscreen, but we do see them engage in plenty of killing and pillaging.
  • Sad Clown: Sven claims to be this.
    "I am also funny guy. Because inside there is pain."
  • Villainous Crush: Sven instantly falls for Bean. Bean also finds him attractive, and was willing to sleep with him; until Elfo comes in to interrupt them, and all hell breaks loose.

    Tess 

Tess

"We're all about peace and love and goddamn body positivity!"
Voiced by: Jeny Batten

A female giant who is missing one eye. She is captured by Pendergast's knights and taken to Dreamland, where she is forced to date Elfo because she coincidentally resembles his imaginary girlfriend from a drug-induced hallucination that Bean experienced.


  • Beware the Nice Ones:
    • She's just a normal person who wants to be left alone, but when Pendergast's knights abducted her, she (somehow) ate Turbish's horse while trying to defend herself.
    • She later offers to step on Zog for Bean, who declines.
    • She at first takes pity on the prince-turned-pig Merkimer, and is willing to take him along when she escapes Dreamland. But when Merkimer (accidentally) insults her appearance, she angrily throws him back.
  • Big Eater: She ate Turbish's horse whole, and alive. When she later spits the horse out, it's miraculously still alive and well.
  • Blessed with Suck: The Crystal Ball Elfo gives her as a fake eye allows her to see the truth about anyone she looks at. Turns out, this isn't really all that great, and she eventually returns it.
  • Blind Seer: She gained the ability to see the truth through a Crystal Ball stuck in her empty right eye socket.
  • Butt-Monkey: She suffers a completely undeserved Humiliation Conga throughout "Love's Tender Rampage". First she was kidnapped and taken from her home, caged and chained up like a wild animal, forced to date a complete stranger in order to keep up his convoluted lie that got her into this mess in the first place, suffers Fantastic Racism from fearful humans around her, and is eventually chased out of the city by an angry mob.
  • Contrived Coincidence: She just so happens to fit the exact description that Elfo had made up for his fictitious Girlfriend in Canada.
  • Cyclops: For all intents and purposes, she's a one-eyed giant, even though she was born with two eyes.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: After Turbish tries to shoot her with a flaming arrow, and sets the castle ballroom on fire, Tess just ends up wrecking the place on accident while trying to put it out.
  • Eye Scream: At some point in the past, she lost her right eye. She covers it up with an eyepatch, but Elfo (temporarily) replaced her missing eye with a magic Crystal Ball that gives her some new insights on people.
  • Genius Bruiser: Not only is she a super-strong giant, but reveals herself to be a graduate student as soon as she's able to speak; and indeed she's rather educated and intelligent, and is dismayed that giants are stereotyped as stupid brutes.
  • Gentle Giant: Rather than being a brutish, violent monster, Tess is actually quite polite, well-spoken, intelligent, and sophisticated. Giants being violent is implied to be more of a racist stereotype in this setting.
  • Giant Woman: She's a 12-foot-tall giantess.
  • Girlfriend in Canada: She gets mistaken for Elfo's imaginary girlfriend, and is forced to keep up the charade by dating him for some time.
  • Green-Eyed Redhead: Her hair is red, and Elfo describes her as having a green eye. The latter being an Informed Attribute, since typical for Groening's art style she doesn't have colored irises.
  • Meaningful Name: She's a giantess that happens to be a giant named Tess.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger: As a giant, she's twice as big as humans and far stronger, though overall she seems to be a regular university student. She also advocates for giants being treated equally like other races.
  • Precision F-Strike: Tess gets in one of the harder curses of the show, when she angrily proclaims that Elfo is a "dick".
  • Super Strength: She can break bridges and buildings with her bare hands fairly easily.
  • The Unintelligible: Subverted. When first introduced, she can only make animalistic grunting and roaring, but this is only because she got a horse stuck in her throat. Once she clears it out, she's able to speak very articulately.

"Immortality is folly."
Voiced by: Rich Fulcher (English), Humberto Vélez (Latin American Spanish)

An ancient sorcerer who invented the Elixir of Life, and who's also the ex-husband of Gwen the Witch. He currently lives alone in a remote, icy cave protected by a single death trap.


  • The Aloner: He spends his days living alone in the Cave of the Single Trap, and admits he's very lonely.
  • Broken Record: "The repetition, the monotony, the repetition, the monotony, the repetition, the monotony..."
  • Didn't Think This Through: He designed the Death Trap in the Cave of the Single Trap (In Two Parts). As he admits, it has a glaring weakness to parties of three or more, which he hasn't gotten around to fixing yet.
  • Elderly Immortal: He was already old when he decided to take the Elixir of Life.
  • Immortality Seeker: At least at first, being the one who first created the Elixir. But then he grew tired of it.
  • I Never Told You My Name: He knows who Bean is despite her never giving him her name. Before he can tell her how he knows, Luci makes them leave.
  • Mad Eye: Has a grey cataract over his right eye that contributes to his unhinged appearance.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: He eventually got sick of immortality, due to "the repetition, the monotony..." This is why he got rid of the Eternity Pendant needed to create the Elixir of Life.

    God 

God

Voiced by: Phil La Marr

The supreme being who created Heaven, Hell, the universe, and everything. A pretty cool guy.


  • Ambiguously Evil: Jerry accuses God of being "a bastard", blaming Him for causing all the misery that mortals have to suffer through in life.
  • Berserk Button: Don't insult Jerry. That earns you a one-way ticket to Hell, as Elfo finds out the hard way.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: The lack of any banister on the literal staircase to Hell? He made it like that, as Luci states, to "teach them a lesson".
  • Cruel to Be Kind: He tells Jerry that all he went through was His test to make him stronger. Jerry thinks this makes Him a bastard.
  • The Faceless: He technically doesn't have a face, just a glowing ball of light for a head.
  • God Is Good: He's a pretty chill guy, taking profanity, blasphemy, and even mooning in stride. However he has a rather severe "my way or the highway" perspective on morality; as he doesn't allow Elfo to go to Hell, even though he repeatedly demands to go there of his own free will (at least until he insults Jerry). And Jerry's comments accuse Him of being evil.
  • Omniscient Morality License: He tries to pull the "works in mysterious ways" card, only for Jerry to call Him out on how terrible that is. At the end of "Stairway to Hell", it's implied that God damning Elfo to Hell for insulting Jerry may have just been another ploy to make everything work out the way he wanted.
  • Time Abyss: Being the first entity to ever exist in the universe, he's got to be pretty old, perhaps even far more than Asmodeus (who's been around for at least 4 million years).
