    The SAMES 

The SAMES

Voiced by: Tom Kenny
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sames.jpg

The maintenance robots aboard the Galaxy One, as well as its main defense.


  • Arm Cannon: Their hands can transform into laser guns. It takes a while for Gary to realize that he also has one, despite having his robot arm coming from robots.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: When they need to fight in melee, they have retractable blades that can replace their hands. A feature that Gary also inherits thanks to his robot arm.
  • Blood Knight: One of them apparently "never felt so alive" during combat. Given that they're all nearly identical, it's likely they all share this trait.
  • Distinguishing Mark: Gary named some of his favorites by writing names on their foreheads. So far, named SAMEs include Hank, Carl, Rob, Orson, Noodles, and Boobs.
  • Fun with Acronyms: S.A.M.E.S. stands for Synthetic Artificial Masses Erecting Safeness
  • Kill 'Em All: They all got destroyed along with the Galaxy One in the Season 1 finale. In season 2, Fox is using Carl's head as a flower pot.
  • Mecha-Mooks: On the good guy's side, which is rare for the trope.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Their eyes glow red whenever security protocol is activated and they are ordered to fight.
  • Red Shirt: So far they've been no match for anything they've fought.

    The DeWinter Family 

David DeWinter, Melanie DeWinter, and their two unnamed Sons

David DeWinter and both Sons voiced by: Olan Rogers, Melanie DeWinter voiced by: Tika Sumpter
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dewinter_family.png

A very unlucky family of Hooblots who used to live on Tera Con Prime.


  • Crusading Widower: After the events of Chapter 2, David and his sons gave up everything in their lives to exact vengeance on Gary.
    David: (to Gary) Ever since the day I held the torn flesh-sack of my beloved Melanie, I knew I had to hunt you down! It is my life's purpose! I quit my job! I took the kids out of school!
    Both Sons: (waving cheerfully at Gary) Hello, mommy!
    David: I emptied my savings! You killed the mother of my sweet children!
  • Genuine Human Hide: All the DeWinters get slammed mercilessly by this trope.
    • First, in Chapter 2, Clarence gives Gary an "alien disguise" which he made of Melanie DeWinter's skin, so Gary can travel around Terra Con Prime safely.
    • Later on, Gary suddenly finds himself jettisoned straight inside the DeWinter house. All of Melanie's grieving family are overjoyed to find "her" alive... right up until the Sons accidentally rip their mother's skin apart in a tug-of-war game, traumatizing the DeWinters exponentially worse than before.
    • History "repeats," (er, kinda) when Gary goes back in time in The Remembered. Once again, Clarence supplies Gary with an alien skin-suit disguise to get through Terra Con Prime... this one made from Melanie DeWinter's father.
    • Then Melanie, herself, stumbles upon her Gary, and rips his disguise apart while tearfully embracing her "dad." The shock causes her to suffer a heart attack.
  • Hollywood Heart Attack: Alas, poor Melanie.
  • No Name Given: Neither of the Sons.
  • Revenge by Proxy: The DeWinters also intend to go after Sheryl Goodspeed, not just Gary. The fate Daniel has planned for Sheryl is grotesque.
    David: (to Gary) We're going to hunt you down, and we're going to hunt your mother down and kill her as well! An eye for an eye... or more like a flesh-sack for a flesh-sack!
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior:
    Son #1: (referring to Gary) I'm gonna kill Mommy!
    Son #2: No, I'm gonna kill Mommy!

    Todd H. Watson 

Todd H. Watson / "Hushfluffles"

Voiced by: Alan Tudyk
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/disguisedtodd.jpg
Real form 

A vengeful man out for Gary's blood due to his perceived failure at saving Earth.


  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Todd has some thick eyebrows.
  • Crusading Widower: A villainous example. Todd wants to kill Gary for blaming the latter for losing the Earth leading to the death of his wife (and son).
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Ends up on the receiving end of one, from Tribore of all people. While Todd is obviously doing his best, he doesn't manage to land a single hit on Tribore while the latter effortlessly dodges and parries his attack, even using Todd's own hand to repeatedly slap him in the face before finishing him off with a Roundhouse Kick.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He was Forced to Watch his family be killed after the Earth was pulled into Final Space.
  • Fate Worse than Death: After getting his ass effortlessly kicked by Tribore, he gets sealed in one of the very devices he used to drain people from their life force and is jettisoned into space while his ship is destroyed, meaning that unless he comes back in Season 3, he will most likely die from thirst and starvation in the void of space with no hope to escape. Doubles as a Karmic Death.
  • Faux Affably Evil: When disguised as Hushfluffles, he comes off as bubbly and excitable. Beneath the surface, however, he is an empty husk with a deep thirst for vengeance.
  • Foil: To the Lord Commander/Jack. They are both recurring, maniacal antagonists with powerful forces at their disposal. Unlike Jack, however, Todd is human and plays up a more sympathetic side. And also unlike Jack, who tries to capture Mooncake for his own gain and is at cross for Gary and the crew for interfering, Todd’s attack is a lot more straightforward, mostly since Gary is actually his target from the beginning.
  • Forced to Watch: Todd could only watch from a monitor as his family was killed, unable to do anything.
  • Freudian Excuse: Hates Gary because his family was killed when one of the Titans pulled the Earth into Final Space.
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: It still doesn’t excuse for how he drained many innocent people’s lives to fuel the Galaxy.
  • Gonk : While Final Space characters aren't very detailed due to the show's art style, it's pretty obvious that Todd isn't exactly what you'd call an attractive man; he's missing one of his front teeth, the other ones are an unhealthy shade of yellow, he has a broken nose, massive cheekbones and the wart on his right cheek would give Lemmy Kilmister a run for his money. The fuzzy, bright red "Hushfluffles" bodysuit that he keeps wearing all the time doesn't help his case, either.
    Tribore : "Sorry, can't hear you; that shirt is too loud !"
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Gets his ass soundly kicked by Tribore, one of his former prisoners, before getting locked into one of his life draining pods and launched into space.
  • Misplaced Retribution: Wants nothing more than to destroy Gary and his friends due to blaming him as being indirectly responsible for the Earth's destruction.
  • Moral Myopia: Hates Gary with a passion for supposedly losing the Earth which killed his family but doesn't seem to acknowledge how he is draining dozens of crews of their lives, thus depriving them of seeing their loved ones.
  • Mysterious Middle Initial: He introduces himself as "Todd H.Watson", leaving his actual middle name unknown.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: His son died when Earth was pulled into Final Space.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Puts all of his efforts in exacting his revenge on Gary for something that was not even his fault to begin with.
  • Sole Survivor: Of his family, as they were killed when the Earth was destroyed.
  • Start of Darkness: Todd was apparently an ordinary Earthling prior to the Earth's destruction, which lead to the deaths of his wife and son. Now, he's an evil maniac bent on killing Gary.
  • Stupid Evil: Todd and Sheryl probably would have succeeded in their missions, but Todd’s obsessiveness mixed with Sheryl’s arrogance soon lead to their karmic defeats. Sheryl decides to go solo on the dark planet to find the fifth key, where she is outnumbered and eventually defeated. On the other hand, Todd finds himself curb-stomped by Tribore, one of his former prisoners, and jettisoned into space inside his own life-draining capsule. Lastly, both villains don’t seem to realize that their revenge scheme against Gary is easier said than done. Gary has the ENTIRE Crimson Light by his aid, and getting to him specifically proves difficult.
  • Unexplained Recovery: If the trailers for Season 3 are anything to go by, Todd will be returning. How he managed to escape his predicament at the end of Season 2 and how he ended up in Final Space to begin with remain to be seen.
  • Villain of the Week: Todd is the main antagonist of "The Happy Place".
  • Villain Team-Up: With Sheryl as of "The Lost Spy”. Their first encounter is hostile, but when Todd discovers in her memories that they have a common grudge against the same person, they join forces. Todd hires Sheryl for Gary’s arrest, in exchange for helping her round up the rest of the dimensional keys.
  • We Have Reserves: Makes a job out of luring space crews and harvesting their happiness (i.e. life energy) which would then be used to fuel the galaxy.

    Evil KVNs 

Evil KVNs / Mega-KVN

Voiced by: Fred Armisen
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/final_space_s2_e7_22.png
Mega-KVN 

An army of KVNs that Clarence had bought, unfortunately, they've gone rogue and seek to kill him.


  • Ax-Crazy: They want to murder the crew in revenge for imprisoning them for several years. Clarence in particular.
  • Body Horror: A robotic variation. The Mega-KVN is assembled by several other KVNs merging into a giant robot.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Discussed. The KVNs go into great detail on how they're going to kill Clarence, such as ripping off his penis and using it as a necklace.
  • Evil Counterpart: To our KVN.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "The First Time They Met".
  • Not Quite Dead: The crew believes that sending them out of the airlock is the only way to kill them. Turns out that they can even survive in space without oxygen and vow to get their revenge some day.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: They all sport red glowing eyes to signify their corruption.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Upon being freed by our KVN, they waste no time in taking over the ship.
  • Thrown Out the Airlock: How the crew manages to stop them, as they're immune to any form of firepower.
  • You Will Be Spared: They seek to kill the entire crew (mainly Clarence), except our KVN, likely because Ape Shall Never Kill Ape.

    Time Swap Sammy 

Time Swap Sammy

Voiced by: Tom Kenny
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/time_swap_sammy.jpg

An alien who is in charge of preventing ripples in timelines.


  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: The list of things he tells the Team Squad they are not allowed to do in the past that could create a Butterfly Effect is "no disturbing, no killing, no romancing, and no tipping". Fox is horrified by the last one.
  • Cartoon Creature: He has the appearance of an alien rabbit, but with the ears flopped down and he has three fingers.
  • Ignored Expert: He warns the Team Squad that even the slightest change in the past could cause the entire universe to be destroyed. They decide to continue with their plan to steal the Dimensional Key in the past and rescue Avocato anyway.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Unlike some of the characters, Sammy has the appearance of a Dr. Seuss-style creature.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Although he warns against changing the past, he is willing to help the Team Squad save Avocato from dying. All he asks for in return is they give him the Dimensional Key they stole, and follow his instructions of someone staying in the past to replace Avocato so time doesn't collapse in on itself.
  • Time Police: He warns the crew of the Crimson Light not to change anything in the past, and stops them when they try to return to the present with a dimensional key they obtained in the past.

    Zombie Garys 

Zombie Garys

Voiced by: Olan Rogers
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zombiegarys.png

Gary Goodspeed's dead alternate selves from other timelines who are now possessed by Invictus.


  • Alternate Self: Of Gary Goodspeed.
  • Body Horror: Most of them are absolutely mangled.
  • The Dead Have Eyes: Glowing, purple eyes to be precise. At least, those of them that still have a recognizable face.
  • Elite Zombie: They can run and fight no matter how decayed or damaged their body is.
  • Fallen Hero: Each and every one of them used to be a Gary Goodspeed from an alternate timeline who failed in his quest and died a horrible death; they all ended up in Final Space, and now Invictus uses their reanimated corpses to hunt down the "main" Gary and his friends.
  • Fearless Undead: Since Invictus is the one controlling all of them, they have no individual sense of self-preservation.
  • Glowing Eyelights of Undeath: All their eyes glow purple. This is due to Invictus using them as it's thralls to hunt down the heroes.
  • Night of the Living Mooks: They are dead Garys from countless different timelines, whose bodies are used as footsoldiers by Invictus.
  • No Zombie Cannibals: Since they're all controlled by Invictus and aren't "traditional" brain-eating zombies to begin with, they are not interested in attacking eachother.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: They are not your typical mindless, slow, brain-obsessed zombies; instead, they're a collective entity being controlled by Invictus to do it's bidding.
  • You Don't Look Like You: Very downplayed but some of them display some minor differences compared to the main Gary, hinting that something different happened in their timeline; for example, one of them, seen on the picture above, still has his left arm despite wearing the clothes Gary had by the end of Season 1, meaning that the Lord Commander didn't tear Gary's arm off in that timeline.
  • People Puppet: They're dead bodies being controlled by Invictus.
  • Possessing a Dead Body: Yes, Invictus can control corpses too.
  • Rocketless Reentry: How they make it to the planet Gary and his team are stranded on. Invictus just let them all fall from orbit, then reanimated them after they hit the ground.
  • Zombie Gait: Averted, big time. They are just as fast as Gary himself, making them all that more dangerous.

    Tim Belts 

Tim Belts

Voiced by: John DiMaggio

A dead prophet, who leaves a posthumous prophecy for Tribore and Quatronostro.


  • Full-Name Basis: He's pretty much always referred to as Tim Belts.
  • Junkie Prophet: Tim Belts was known to be "a late-stage alcoholic soothsayer." Not that it made him any less revered as a prophet.
  • Mathematician's Answer:
    Tim Belts: The time has come for YOU to liberate the Forsaken and lead them out of Final Space!
    Tribore: When you say "you," do you mean me or Quatronostro?
    Tim Belts: YES! For I have foretold: YOU are the Great Liberator!
  • Pajama-Clad Hero: A bathrobe-clad oracle... and a rather grungy one, at that.
  • Special Person, Normal Name: "Tim Belts" certainly doesn't have quite the same oracular ring to it as names like Pythia, Dodona, or Trophonius, does it?
