Gary Goodspeed

Voiced by: Olan Rogers, Caleb McLauglin (young Gary)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cd9580c6_4981_4307_9c1c_fae74317cff7.png

The main protagonist, a hyperactive yet good-hearted astronaut who finds himself on a journey to save the universe from whatever threats may come its way.


  • Adorkable: His childlike approach to most situations as well as his infatuation with Quinn can be rather endearing.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Thunder Bandit", by Little Cato.
  • Alliterative Name: Gary Goodspeed.
  • All-Loving Hero: His head might be in another dimension most of the time, but his heart is as huge as his personality; according to H.U.E., he puts others' lives before his, as demonstrated in episodes after Chapter Six.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Well, it's obvious that he's Gone Mad From The Isolation, but his impulsiveness and the fact that he keeps re-experiencing his father's death hint at deeper mental and emotional issues.
  • Artificial Limbs: As his picture shows on this page, he gains a robotic arm after episode 2 when the Lord Commander tears it off.
  • Artificial Limbs Are Stronger: He ziplines down a metal cable with his bare metal hand. Unfortunately, stronger doesn't mean lacking pain receptors.
  • Badass Baritone: Averted. He attempts to talk in a deep "heroic" voice but it's painfully obvious he's only pretending especially when he gets scared and starts shrieking.
  • Badass Normal: Compared to the rest of the Team Squad, Gary is just a regular guy : Quinn/Nightfall is a trained Infinity Guard agent, Avocato is a veteran soldier, Little Cato received martial arts training from an early age, Mooncake is a creature powerful enough to obliterate planets, KVN is nigh-invulnerable and has a suit of power-armor on stand-by, Fox is a hulking cyborg, Ash has supernatural powers, Tribore is a skilled close-combat expert and tactician and Sheryl Goodspeed is an experienced spy and thief who also claims to be the "best pilot in the universe", yet Gary manages to pull his weight and keep up with his team through thick and thin.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: His relationship with Quinn by the time of chapter 10.
  • Break the Cutie: The events of season one visibly wears Gary down. He doesn't totally lose his goofiness in the second season, but he has mellowed out considerably.
  • The Captain: Gary remains fully convinced that he is the Captain of the ship, no matter how many times HUE tries to remind him that he isn't, he's merely a prisoner. From episode 8 onwards, he starts to play this trope straight, though he still keeps his sillier side.
  • Character Development: Gary starts off as a buffoon who was also kind of a jerk, but after being exposed to his friends and flying into the face of danger several times, he becomes a more reliable, independent and tough leader amongst his crew, more so than he once was in the past five years.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Oh, so very much. 5 straight years of isolation has driven him to dress up a fridge as his wife, name all of the seemingly mindless prison robots and desperately cling to anybody who will play cards with him.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Heavily implied. Quinn mentions that the Sentient Cosmic Force Invictus is hunting for Gary specifically, and the number of dead Garys there are within Final Space along with the fact that it ignores Quinn sells the point home.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Gary's an Idiot Hero but turns out to be a very competent leader and pilot in the show's finale.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: At a young age, Gary witnessed the explosion that killed his father. His mother neglected and abandoned him in her grief, disappearing from his life until season 2. And prior to meeting and being arrested by Quinn, it's hinted that Gary led a less than law-abiding life.
  • Dumb Blonde: Of the male variant. He has blonde hair and has shown off a lot of idiotic behavior.
  • Evil-Detecting Baby: Possibly. A flashback in "The Lost Spy" shows him as an infant crying while his mother is speaking to her mysterious superior. Gary's crying is what alerts his father to run into the room and catch Sheryl in the act.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation: Flashbacks show that Gary's always been a bit off, but his condition's only been exacerbated from being alone in prison for five years with no one but HUE, KVN (whom he hates), and his various robot wardens for company. Avocato is the first person he's talked to in-the-flesh in all that time, and Gary's initially happy to even see raiders if it means he has the chance to mingle.
  • Hate at First Sight: In contrast to instantly falling in love with Quinn, from the moment Gary meets KVN, he tells him in no uncertain terms that he hates him.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: A non-fatal example. He time-swaps with Avocato in the past, saving his friend from death but causing Gary to be stranded in The Lord Commander's deserted prison colony for several months.
  • Interspecies Adoption: Is forced into this by Avocato when his death leads to Little Cato being orphaned.
  • Idiot Hero: He's impulsive, loud, very reckless, and has a pretty inflated ego.
  • Insistent Terminology: Gary is proud to remind everyone that he's the Captain of the ship. The only problem is, he isn't, he's just a prisoner, a fact that HUE has reminded him of hundreds of time, but which Gary always ignores.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: As shown in the flashback in the first episode, he was far from a full-fledged Jerkass, but also wasn't exactly the nicest guy either. His imprisonment in a ship with robots by himself for five years mellowed him out greatly.
  • Keet: A very energetic, colorful and rather affectionate person.
  • Love at First Sight: He falls in love with Quinn from the moment he sees her, and believes they're meant for each other.
  • Loving a Shadow: Despite believing he and Quinn are soulmates, Gary actually knows nothing about her. The video messages he sent her everyday for five years were mostly him needing someone to talk to who he projected his own feelings onto.
  • Magnetic Hero: Despite his eccentricities and buffoonish behavior, a lot of people are inevitably drawn to Gary. He wins over Mooncake instantly and even people who initially distrust his competence like HUE, Avocato and Quinn become loyal to him over time.
  • Manchild: Gary is immature, impulsive and somewhat disconnected from reality. It's implied some of these issues stem from the death of father as a child, and Gary never really growing up well into his thirties.
  • Missing Mom: Gary’s mom is never mentioned at all in season 1 aside from a family photo in a flashback where her face is completely obscured. Season 2 reveals that she abandoned Gary shortly after John’s death.
  • Motor Mouth: He has a tendency to ramble, which he acknowledges in Chapter Six as "word-a-rhea".
  • Mr. Fanservice: Mostly played for laughs with his "Real, Raw" face. He's been seen naked a few times too, usually from behind.
  • Mr. Imagination: Gary has a very overactive imagination, which turns a mental prison into a death trap when he keeps imagining new ways for him and Avocato to die.
  • Older Than They Look: Gary is confirmed by the creators to be 30 years old, as there is no difference between this and what he looked like at 25, and in Chapter 8 it's confirmed he can't grow a mustache. In The Sixth Key, Gary mentions that he is 32.
  • Our Hero Is Dead: He seemingly dies from lack of oxygen in Chapter 10 but an anomaly that opens up right behind him. The next episodes reveals that the “anomaly” is actually lights from a garbage ship that takes Gary inside and inadvertently resuscitate him.
  • Parental Substitute: Becomes one for Little Cato over the course of the series since Avocato asked Gary to take care of Little Cato right before sacrificing himself to save him. This eventually bites him in the ass when Invictus turns Avocato (who is Back from the Dead due to time travel) against him by exploiting Avocato's envy of Gary for "replacing" him as Little Cato's father.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Enforced in Chapter Nine. Quinn convinces Gary to give a thumbs up to KVN when he manages to save them with his Power Armor, even if it mentally (and physically) hurts Gary to do so.
    • In "The Grand Surrender", you can hear Gary actually complementing KVN for successfully driving away the line of people. Though KVN accidentally leads them to their deaths.
  • Red Is Heroic: Wore a red spacesuit (which is also his prison uniform). He later changes into a red shirt with a leather jacket in episode 7.
  • Sad Clown: Gary's own VA explains that his very goofy personality is actually a front that resulted from tragically losing his father as a child.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: He gives off extremely high-pitched screeches.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: When he reunites with Quinn, Gary believes this is the relationship they have after she punches him in the face for calling her saucy nicknames. After the third or fourth punch he gets that she's not flirting.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Gary is shown to be hilariously arrogant as he constantly claimed that he is the captain of the Galaxy One when in reality he is just a prisoner serving a five year sentence. Apparently, H.U.E has been keeping a track record of how many times Gary claimed to be the captain since starting his sentence, stating to Gary that he has boasted about it 9,045 times.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Though he couldn't get up to much stalking while in prison, he did send a woman he didn't know a video message every day for the past five years. Said woman never saw or properly responded to those messages until she met him again.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Gary looks just like his dad, except for the different hair color which is closer to his mother's.
  • Team Dad: Gary starts to take on this role during Season 2, especially towards Little Cato.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Gary when first introduced was shown to be an arrogant and childish buffoon who takes nothing seriously and repeatedly flirt with Quinn. Starting in episode 6 however, Gary starts to chip away at his impetuous attitude when he decides to send a message to apologize to Quinn during his mission to rescue Little Cato. Chapter 8 seals this when Bolo calls him out for his insecurities and anxiety then sends him back in time to meet his dad, resulting in him becoming at peace with his dad’s death. His decision to adopt Little Cato in “The Lost Spy” shows how far Gary has developed.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Cookies, and is greatly annoyed KVN gets to eat them but not him. He finally gets to binge on them in episode 7 when his sentence comes to an end, only to find out they're not that good.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The whole show is this for him. He, over the span of about 20 years, is forced to watch 3 of the people closest to him die to save someone, is isolated from all human contact for 5 years, has his arm ripped off, has to watch his father die twice, is given the responsibility of the survival of all life forms in the universe in a couple of days of being freed of his sentence, witnesses the slow destruction of his home planet, and has to witness as his leadership of the assault on the Lord Commander ends in disaster. This culminates to all of the crew's efforts so far being made futile as their allies are wiped out, Mooncake captured, the Earth destroyed by the Titans, and Gary and Little Cato left to suffocate in space. Enter season 2, and Gary still can’t catch a break. Through the course of the season, Gary is enslaved by Clarence, gets severely wounded by his Titan-possessed best friend, and is being hunted by his criminal mother Sheryl, the DeWinters, and an evil maniac named Todd Watson, all three of whom blame Gary on the death of family members.
  • Troubled, but Cute: Basically Quinn's reaction to him when they meet again in episode 4, not recognizing him at first.

    Mooncake 

Mooncake

Voiced by: Olan Rogers
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2ebc59b2_394f_42dc_beb0_1df8c67d6a1a.jpeg

Gary's adorable alien sidekick... who's actually an unbelievably powerful Planet Destroyer.


  • Adorable Abomination: He was born from Final Space, which is home to the Titans and he is an extremely powerful Planet Killer, but he's a cute Cuddle Bug at the end of the day.
  • Badass Adorable: Called a "planet destroyer", but you wouldn't know because of how cute he looks.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: He repeatedly ventures out into space without any form of protective suit or oxygen, and is completely fine. By extend, episode 9 shows he can also go under water without having to worry about oxygen or the pressure.
  • Bouncing Battler: He is capable of bouncing off surfaces like a rubber ball, and he uses this to subdue Infinity Guards at one point.
  • Breath Weapon: He can shoot a green laser from his mouth that is strong enough to wipe out celestial bodies.
  • Cuddle Bug: Mooncake is adorable and very openly affectionate with people he likes, and loves to hug.
  • Demoted to Extra: Plays a much less prominent role in season 2
  • Doom Magnet: Nightfall describes him as one, saying that everywhere he goes, death follows. So far this is less to do with Mooncake than it is with the Lord Commander killing everyone in his path to obtain his power.
  • Face Hugger: When Gary first meets him, he's terrified Mooncake is one of these. It turns out, he's a more literal kind of face hugger.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: Somehow, most of the cast is able to understand exactly what he's saying despite his One-Word Vocabulary.
  • Killer Rabbit: He has the power to destroy entire planets in an instant.
  • Living MacGuffin: Mooncake has immense power and the plot of the first season is mostly driven by the Lord Commander trying to seize that power for himself.
  • Nice Guy: Mooncake is unfalteringly friendly, reliable, and upbeat.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Being squeezed into a closet doesn’t injure him. In Chapter Five, neither does the Galaxy One crash-landing on an alien planet since he always floats, and when he gets shocked in the electric maze he seems more surprised than hurt.
  • One-Word Vocabulary: "Chookity-pok!"
  • Out of Focus: In Season 2, where he's more of a secondary character after being more or less the central focus of Season 1.
  • Post-Stress Overeating: When Gary starts ignoring him in favor of his mom, Mooncake goes on a (mainly pancake) eating spree that turns him into a giant, man-eating, bulbous monster. He calms down after HUE tells him that he doesn't just need Gary's attention.
  • Power Floats: He's a powerful little alien whose main form of movement is levitating.
  • Reluctant Warrior: Despite being a planet destroyer, Mooncake appears not to enjoy killing.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: According to Nightfall, in hundreds of previous timelines, Mooncake goes insane after the Lord Commander murders Gary. He then proceeds to destroy multiple worlds and break through to Final Space, allowing the Titans to go free and ravage the universe.
  • Suddenly Voiced: In "The Other Side", he speaks for the first time via a translator in Little Cato's Bad Future.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: The creators have stated that Mooncake's favorite food is marshmallows.
  • Vacuum Mouth: Pulls off a pretty good Kirby impression to suck KVN and the dimensional keys out of an energy vortex.
  • Wave Motion Gun: He can fire a massive beam of ultra-concentrated energy capable of bisecting ships, slicing monsters into pieces, or destroying entire planets.

    KVN 

KVN

Voiced by: Fred Armisen
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character___kvn_transparent.png

A robot that was assigned as Gary's "deep-space insanity avoidance companion," though this backfired due to him being incredibly annoying.


  • Ambiguously Bi: KVN is very clingy to Gary and has once gazed at Gary's butt in chapter 3 but in chapter 5 he is shown to be in love with a fridge named Beth and chapter 6 has him fall for Quinn after she pretends to flirt with him.
  • Back from the Dead: Initially dying in batte, KVN managed to rebuild himself through sheer force of will in The Torra Regata.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Likes eating cookies, yet as Gary notes can't even eat cookies, just smashes them to his face while making eating noises.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He mostly comes across as The Load, but for a character that is both this and The Friend Nobody Likes, KVN gets a number of Big Damn Heroes moments. And he does all of them from the Galaxy One.
  • Cyber Cyclops: He's a robot with only one eye.
  • Eating Machine: Subverted. He can't eat but he loves smashing cookies into his "mouth," essentially just wasting food.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: In addition to Gary despising him, the rest of the crew is annoyed by his antics, to the point where even HUE says he's a jag-off. It comes to a head in "Chapter 10" when Gary cries Tears of Joy when he sees KVN die.
    • By Season Two, his status has been slowly dropped. Gary seems to be less dismissive of him and tolerates him just a little more than last time. "The Set Up" reveals that KVN formed a genuine bond with Fox and Ash to the point that he is willing to sacrifice his sanity to save the former.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Dies in battle, when protecting the Galaxy One from the Lord Commander's Hives.
    • He does this again in “The Set Up”, but this time, it is a non-fatal example. At the cost of his own sanity, KVN extracts a personality chip from himself in order to save Fox when he is severely wounded by Clarence.
  • Made of Iron: As revealed in "The First Times They Met", killing KVN or any other KVN is nearly impossible as they're practically indestructible, not flame throwers, machine guns, or even being thrown out into space can stop them. You can only kill a KVN by destroying it's robot heart, which is what our KVN did to the final evil KVN.
  • Motor Mouth: He never shuts up.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: After being tied up, Quinn flirts with him to convince him to release her. It works and he immediately offers to kill Gary.
  • Not Now, Kiddo: People usually don't take KVN seriously for good reason, and ignore his presence to focus on the problem at hand. Even when KVN actually has the means to save all their lives, Quinn and Avocato just ignore him. Though when he does save their lives, they're truly thankful of him (Gary, on the other hand, doesn't believe this).
  • Powered Armor: He's revealed to have a large mech suit on standby, it's apparently standard issue for his model.
  • Robot Buddy: Subverted. He was meant to be this towards Gary, but Gary immediately hated him.
  • Scars Are Forever: Starting near the episode 4, KVN is permanently distinguished with his color skin being partially torn off due to Hue's core attacking him. Presumably the only reason he hasn't been fixed up is because he's The Friend Nobody Likes.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: KVN was designed to be Gary's robot companion so that Gary wouldn't go insane from loneliness while a prisoner. This didn't work out to anyone's advantage since KVN's presence caused Gary to go insane, lonely and annoyed for five years.
  • Takes One to Kill One: He effortlessly destroys the last evil KVN in the span of one second with his own hands while the rest of the crew had no way of beating the other evil KVNs other than throwing them out the airlock.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Cookies, much to Gary's great annoyance, since KVN can't even eat them.
  • Trigger Happy: He enjoys laughing off at whatever he's shooting.
  • Troll: He loves trolling Gary in many ways.

    HUE 

HUE

Voiced by: Tom Kenny
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hue_finalspace_3.png
HUE as of Season 2.

An A.I. that watches Gary during his imprisonment.


  • Apologetic Attacker: After the Infinity Guard hijacks his system and turns him against the crew, the last thing HUE does is apologize before attacking his friends.
  • Black Comedy: Seems to be a fan of this if his joke in episode 2 is anything to go by.
  • Body Backup Drive: In episode 10, he transfers his AI into Gary's spacesuit after their ship is destroyed. He later transfers his AI into the body of a run down robot in “The Toro Regata”.
  • Brutal Honesty: It's against his programming to humor Gary's delusions.
  • Butt-Monkey: Transferring his A.I. into an actual robot body has caused a lot of problems for him. Mostly in regards on his inability to master body movement and AVA mocking him.
  • The Comically Serious: HUE's brutal honesty and monotone demeanor contrast wildly with Gary's Large Ham tendencies. Apparently, he hasn't made a single joke in five years.
  • Defrosting Ice King: He starts out as a cold, unfeeling, by-the-book, AI that doesn't even give Gary the time of day. Eventually, he starts becoming more and more casual with Gary, becoming Sophisticated as Hell. He sticks with Gary until the very end, despite firmly believing that whatever reckless action Gary is about to perform will result in his demise. In "Chapter 7", he even tells Gary that he's his Only Friend.
  • Extendable Arms: HUE new robot body has extendable limbs (He learns this the hard way.
  • It Has Been an Honor: HUE tells Gary this during the final two minutes of his life, but stays online for a while afterwards.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: HUE is incredibly blunt and has no problem retaliating against Gary's antics with Amusing Injuries, in addition to extending Gary's sentence for trivial offenses due to a strict adherence to his programming. Despite this, HUE cares about Gary and the entire crew, to the point where he sides with them over the Infinity Guard, and agrees with Avocato to wait for Gary even if it means risking capture.
  • The Load: He hasn't been that useful ever since his mind was transferred into a robot body. And he's painfally aware of it. Made only worse when AVA starts purposefully completing all of his responsibilities much more quicker than he ever could.
    Nightfall: HUE start the engines.
    HUE: You can always count on HUE to quickly-
    (AVA activates the engines just when HUE is about to press the button)
    AVA: Engines are a go!
    HUE: All I had left were the engines, AVA, and now you have taken that too.
  • Machine Monotone: HUE's an AI who always speaks in a subdued monotone, even when he's angry or annoyed. He starts sounding more emotive inflections in his monotone voice in season 2.
  • Only Friend: When Gary's sentence is over and he prepares to leave the ship, HUE admits to Gary that he's his only friend, and KVN is a jag-off.
  • Pet the Dog: He offers Gary a cookie after seeing Gary display bravery for the first time. He immediately retracts the offer when Gary presses his luck by claiming he's the captain.
    • After Gary is blown out of the Lord Commander's ship and left drifting in space, HUE stays online in Gary's spacesuit during the last ten minutes of his life. Then there's his parting words when Gary's ten-minute oxygen supply elapses:
      HUE: (after Gary's final breath) I'll miss you, friend.
  • Promotion to Opening Titles: He's been added to the Season 2 intro in his new robot body.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: He usually speaks in a mechanical manner, but he refers to the Infinity Guard (those on the Lord Commander's payroll, at least) as "dickheads" once. He later proclaims, "Hell yeah, dawg," twice in the same monotone voice, and uses a countdown ending with "Boom-town" during the battle with the Lord Commander's forces in episode 10.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: HUE was first introduced as an overbearing warden to Gary while he was a prisoner on the Galaxy one, going as far as not letting him have any cookies, pinching his hand on the cookie door, lying to Gary about putting a bomb in his brain as a joke, and, extending his sentence multiple times for ridiculous reasons. His level in kindness gets invoked when he gets liberated from Infinity Guard control and become an independent A.I because KVN installed a flash drive given to him by Nightfall that allowed this to happen. Since then, HUE has taken a much softer stance again and has not mentioned Gary’s sentence again until it was fully served
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Big time in "The Set Up". First, he decides to enter a Killer Robot Battle Royale to earn enough money to buy a fancy hat. His opponents are all Humongous Mechas but HUE does end up being the last one standing, if only because all the other robots were too busy slaughtering each other to pay any attention to him. Then, the contest's organizer tries to con him out of his money by taking him to a secret meeting between crime lords, who all start a massive shootout over said money; HUE grabs the Brief Case Full Of Money and jumps out of the window... only to be greeted by several police gunships. So he uses his stretchy robot limbs to rappel down the building. Then he is caught by a police fire squad aiming their guns towards him. So he politely hands them the briefcase... and the police congratulate him for managing to retrieve the money (which was actually stolen during a recent heist), HUE and Mooncake (who was with him the whole time) are hailed as heroes and given medals and a big bag of cash, fireworks looking like them are shot in the sky and, icing on the cake, the police's senior officer mentions that the hat HUE wanted to buy at the very beginning was part of the reward. It is just so over-the-top and "too good to be true" that the viewer is led to think that it's all an Imagine Spot on HUE's part... But it's not ! At the end of the episode, HUE and Mooncake are seen inside the Crimson Light with their medals and HUE is still wearing his hat... which AVA genuinely compliments on. After having been the show's resident Butt-Monkey for the past 10 episodes, the Universe has finally given HUE a break!
  • Undying Loyalty: Declares this to Gary in his last 2 minutes before oxygen runs out.

    Quinn Airgone 

Quinn Airgone

Voiced by: Tika Sumpter
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character___quinn_airgone1.png

A space officer who crosses paths with Gary.


  • Accidental Misnaming: The first time she reunites with Gary, she can't get his name right no matter how many times he corrects her. Humorlessly, she's instantly able to remember the names of every other person onboard the ship who she just met.
  • Action Girl: She knows lots of fighting techniques.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Her pilot design had a tan skintone. As for the series itself she seems to have been redesigned to be black.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Her relationship with Gary by the time of chapter 10.
  • Big Damn Kiss: With Gary in episode 10.
  • Blue Is Heroic: The color of her Infinity Guard uniform.
  • Broken Pedestal: When she learns the infinity guard now serves Lord Commander she is very distraught and later removes the insignia from her uniform.
  • Brutal Honesty: Like HUE, Quinn doesn't hold back on the truth. Unlike HUE, she's not programmed to be that way, it's just how she is.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: She arrested Gary five years ago for impersonating an officer and destroying most of the Infinity Guard's ships (and a Mexican family restaurant), but she doesn't remember him at all when they reunite. It takes an entire episode for her to finally remember him, much less get his name right.
  • Cowboy Cop: She's not much of a cowboy, but she does go rogue from the Infinity Guard when they refuse to let her investigate a breech in space. It turns out the Infinity Guard leadership is corrupt and the reason they opposed her investigating the breech is because they're the ones behind it.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Towards Gary in particular, who she doesn't take seriously at first because of his erratic behavior, but eventually grows to trust. She warms up to him more when HUE shows him all the messages Gary made for her over the past five years.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Quinn doesn't mince words and can be really abrasive, to the point of calling her superiors or allies "idiots" right to their faces. She's also willing to sacrifice a single life if it means saving more people in the long run. That said, she is not a bad person, and firmly sets herself on the heroic side by trying to save as many people as possible.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She detonates the anti-matter bomb in the breach, thus preventing Final Space from being activated. However her fate remains unknown after this.
  • Insufferable Genius: Quinn's a genius but she has a bit of an ego about it, to the point where her distress signal has her screaming for help from any idiots in the area.
  • It's All My Fault: She has this reaction when Superior Stone tells her that the highly complex math equation she was doodling on a bar napkin in the first episode is exactly what the Lord Commander needed to open the breech in space.
  • I Work Alone: This is her most prominent flaw along with her ego about her intelligence, since she's been considered "unattainable" even among her other Infinity Guard members and is not above striking out on her own when frustrated enough with people's ignorance/ idiocies. The bulk of the first season focuses on her overcoming her reluctance to trust the Galaxy One crew for support, and she ultimately does get better by the end of the first season.
  • The Needs of the Many: She may not like it, but she was willing to leave Gary to die in a supernova because he was just one person and billions of other lives are counting on what she's found out. She later argues against prioritizing saving Little Cato because Earth being in danger is the more pressing matter.
  • Older Than She Looks: She looks to be in her early to mid 20's but Word of God reveals that she is 32 years old.
  • Only Sane Man: She's the only Infinity Guard who believes looking into evidence of a gravitational anomaly that could endanger the planet is a good thing.
  • Selective Obliviousness: Despite otherwise being highly competent, episode 5 has her in deep denial over the Infinity Guard's corruption even though the evidence is so overwhelming even Gary's figured it out.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: Played for laughs. Gary thinks this is their relationship after she decks him for calling her saucy nicknames. He eventually admits he was wrong after several more punches, only to push his luck at the end of the episode and have her snap his finger.
  • The Smart Girl: She's a genius by the standards of the Infinity Guard, and definitely the smartest person in the main cast.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: She calls her superiors "idiots" right to their faces after they refuse to investigate the gravitational anomaly that could endanger Earth. Her closest ally in the Infinity Guard, Tribore, is one of the dumbest people in the cast. In Chapter 5, it turns out her superiors aren't idiots— they're corrupt, and working on expanding the breech that she wants to investigate.
  • Tsundere: Even as Quinn grows to care about Gary more and more, she still insults him and treats him abrasively. It's rather downplayed by chapters 9 and 10, though.
  • Uncertain Doom: She goes all the way into the breach before detonating the antimatter bomb. It's unknown if the bomb, the fallout from Final Space's explosion, or the Titans inside the breach killed her or not.
    • It was later revealed that she survived in “The Closer You Get” but is trapped in Final Space and held hostage by Invictus
  • We Can Rule Together: Superior Stone makes this offer to her. Gary freaks out and begs her not to, despite it being abundantly clear she has absolutely no interest whatsoever in taking him up on that offer.

    Avocato 

Avocato

Voiced by: Coty Galloway
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character___avocato_transparent_0.png

A Ventrexian (not a cat) who teams up with Gary to rescue his son.


  • Action Dad: He's an asskicking father and a Papa Wolf.
  • The Atoner: Episode 6 reveals he used to be the loyal right-hand man of the Lord Commander until his boss tried to force him to kill his own son. Avocato joining with Gary to fight the Lord Commander is both a way to save his son and as an attempt to atone for the evils he committed in his past.
  • Badass Adorable: Insanely skilled at asskicking in practically every way, even killing a fellow bounty hunter. He's a cat-man (essentially) so that helps.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: In his pilot incarnation, he didn't wear space boots. In the series proper he is Fully Dressed.
  • Bishie Sparkle: Can apparently summon these at will and taught his son to do the same.
  • Bounty Hunter: He's introduced as a bounty hunter on the Lord Commander's payroll.
  • Came Back Wrong: The crew manages to go back in time and save him in exchange for leaving Gary behind, but the damages to his nervous system were so extensive he doesn't remember them anymore.
  • Cat Folk: He's a Ventrexian, essentially an alien cat-man. Don't call him a real cat, though.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: If it wasn't for him, Gary and him would've died in episode 3 due to Gary's idiocy. Also plays straight man to Gary a lot.
  • Cool Down Hug: How he breaks Little Cato free from the Lord Commander's control.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He used to be the Lord Commander's right-hand man and committed all manner of atrocities on his master's command.
  • Disappeared Dad: Justified. Not by choice given that Lord Commander is holding his son captive. Even more so after he dies.
  • Even Mooks Have Loved Ones: In his flashback during episode 6, Avocato refused to obey the Lord Commander's order to kill his son and turned the gun on his boss after killing the guards holding Little Cato. If only he only had the damn chance to shoot...
  • Famous Last Words: "Take care of my boy."
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Invictus used this tropes to corrupt him. Specifically, Invictus exploits Avocato's envy of Gary becoming more of a father figure to Little Cato, calling Gary a thief who stole Little Cato from him.
  • Grumpy Bear: He's not really angry but he tends to be in a bad mood a lot. Considering his son has been held prisoner for at least three years and the people he has to deal with, it's understandable why he's not the most chipper guy though...
  • Heel–Face Turn: His backstory has him doing such a turn when he refused to kill Little Cato under direct orders from the Lord Commander. Episode 2 cements this after he meets and befriends Gary.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He dies at the end of episode 6, saving his son and his friends by Jumping on a Grenade.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He carries quite a few sticky bombs in his belt pack during his rescue mission for Little Cato in Episode 6, using one to blow open a prison door. As he's fleeing, some even fall out of his bag and into the hole the Lord Commander was knocked into. This allows the Lord Commander to activate one of them and place it on Little Cato in a last-ditch effort to kill the Galaxy One crew. Once Avocato notices the bomb, his death becomes a very rare completely literal example of this trope.
  • I Have Your Wife: The only reason he worked for the Lord Commander is because Little Cato was being held hostage.
  • "I Know You Are in There Somewhere" Fight: He has one with Little Cato in episode 6 after the Lord Commander possesses the latter. Luckily, Avocato is able to get through to him. Unfortunately, their victory doesn't last long.
  • Jumping on a Grenade: The Lord Commander uses his psychic powers to plant a sticky grenade on Little Cato's back. When Avocato sees it, he takes it and runs to the far end of the ship to shield everyone with his own body.
  • Killed Off for Real: He dies in chapter 6, which Olan Rogers said would be a permanent change. Subverted since he is brought back by a temporal loophole, then subverted again as he is possessed by Invictus and seemingly destroyed. Then subverted yet again as, by the end of the second season's finale, he's finally freed from Invictus' Demonic Possession and gets back on the Team Squad.
  • The Lancer: He was Gary's best friend and second-in-command.
  • Love Redeems: The Lord Commander ordered all of his top lieutenants to murder their first-born child as a show of loyalty to him. Up until that point Avocato had been loyal, but he refused to murder his son and tried to turn against his master. He only continued to work for the Lord Commander afterwards because his son's life would be forfeit if he didn't.
  • Mr. Exposition: When he isn't talking about trying to find his son or trying to keep Gary from doing something stupid, most of his dialogue tends to be explaining the different alien worlds to Gary and what's at stake on their adventures (just look at both episode 2 and 3).
  • Not So Above It All: Although he usually plays the Only Sane Man to balance Gary's antics, there have been moments where he shows he can be just as silly as he is. Like giving "words of wisdom" after being shrunk in Chapter 5 and acting like his reduced height increased his intelligence, enjoying the music Gary plays when they do an aerial drop to the Lord Commander's prison planet, even shouting "what no tunes baby?" during the second jump, and shooting wildly with Gary when they first bust into the prison before realizing it is completely empty.
  • Only Sane Man: Can be this (aside from Quinn and HUE) when you compare him to most members of the prison ship.
  • Papa Wolf: Even if he is technically a cat, Avocato won't let anyone or anything stand in the way of rescuing his son, Little Cato.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Word of God states that Avocato is 512 years old.
  • Sacrificial Lion: He's built up as Gary's lancer and best friend, and his tragic backstory is revealed in episode 6. At the end of that same episode, he dies by by Jumping on a Grenade to save his son and friends.
  • Single Tear: He sheds a tear after finally rescuing his son and hugging him in the Galaxy One. The tear is hard to see because the camera zooms out in a blink and you’ll miss it moment.
  • The Stoic: Doesn't tend to show a lot of emotion, unless it comes to his son.
  • Walking Armory: Literally covered in guns at one point, which Quinn lampshades.
    Quinn: I have no reason to trust any of you, so I'm going with the guy literally covered in guns.

    Little Cato 

Little Cato

Voiced by: Steven Yeun
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character___little_cato_transparent.png

Avocato's son, once a prisoner of the Lord Commander.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Gary calls him "Spider Cat".
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Little Cato is the youngest of the heroes, both in terms of pure numbers and relatively, being 14 in a species where ages above 500 is seemingly considered young. He also explicitly admits to being a child when Avocato accuses him of being childish.
  • Badass Adorable: He's a cute little cat guy with a punk edge, but damn if he can't kick some ass well. As shown in episode 5 where he's dangling over a ledge and swings up to take out an overlooking guard. He also shows great skills in computer hacking and climbing through ventilation shafts.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In episode 6, he himself is used by the Lord Commander as a mind-controlled puppet in attempt to trick Avocato. However, Avocato already knows it's a trap and doesn't fall for it. Once Lord Commander figures he can't tempt Avocato with sympathy for his son, he forces Little Cato to fight and kill his father.
  • Cat Folk: Just like his father although decidedly more edgy in attire with his blue mohawk.
  • Combat Parkour: He is very proficient with guns and agile despite his very young age. He is seen performing such parkour in episode 5 when he swings up from and kicks a guard over a ledge, and in episode 9 when he guns down two Infinity Guard members while doing a flip.
  • Cosmic Plaything: The poor kid never catches a break and has for the whole of season 2 been stuck in an unending Trauma Congaline, that includes but is not limited to getting his father back via time travel only to have Avacato develop Laser-Guided Amnesia and then get possessed by an Eldritch Abomination almost immediately after getting his memory back.
  • Cry Cute: Does it in chapters six and seven. It’s especially adorable when he sheds tears after seeing a photo of himself and his father because his ears droop down.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "The Other Side" focuses on Little Cato. Primarily his mental state and his way of coping with his father's death.
  • Defiant Captive: Even when he's the Lord Commander's prisoner, he remains snarky and unafraid, to the point where he attacks his warden and badmouths the Lord Commander himself.
    Little Cato: You look like crap. You always looked like crap, but right now you look like if crap built a house on crap.
  • Deuteragonist: Takes over Quinn's role as this in the second season.
  • Distressed Dude: He's the Lord Commander's prisoner until episode 6.
  • Emo Teen: Episode 7 demonstrates that he's one, given his personal chamber in the ship is decorated with gothic iconography and that he's kind of grumpy towards everyone else, though the latter at least is justified given that he had just witnessed his father's death.
  • Happily Adopted: Gary adopts him to make up for Avocato's second death/corruption. Little Cato's response? Hug him and cry a little.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Becomes this after witnessing Avocato's death, and it comes to a head in "The Other Side" when he experiences 60 years alone in a space-time-wrecked half of the Crimson Light.
  • "I Know You Are in There Somewhere" Fight: The Lord Commander takes control of him and forces him to try to kill his dad. Luckily Avocato is able to get through to him.
  • Interspecies Adoption: By Gary, after his father's death.
  • It's All My Fault: When it looks like he's going to die, Little Cato outright says this to Gary regarding Avocato's own death.
    Little Cato: [glitching back and forth in age, sobbing] This was all my fault... he died because of me.
  • Manly Tears: Little Cato, for a kid his age is surprisingly quite brave and mature as he seemed to be more concerned for his fathers safety than his own. At the end of episode 6, we first see him cry when he witnesses his father’s tragic death.
  • Missing Mom: Little Cato’s mother (A.K.A, Avocato’s supposed wife) is never seen or mentioned in the show. Whether she is deceased or has split from Avocato is unknown. However he cringes a little when KVN asked if he could act in that parental role.
  • Morality Pet: When his father was a villain, Little Cato served as this. Best shown when he was set up to be killed by the Lord Commander as a show of loyalty, and Avocato attempted to kill the Lord Commander rather than follow through.
  • Penal Colony: He spends most of the first half of season one in the Lord Commander's prison colony.
  • Parental Substitute: Though initially abrasive towards Gary he quickly grows to love him intensely as a surrogate father once Avocato dies. Even more so once he dies a second time.
  • Playful Hacker: He has a cheerful personality and has a talent for hacking, even boasting that he's surpassed his father at it.
  • Revenge Before Reason: After his father's death, Little Cato goes on what is essentially a suicide mission against a much larger ship that the Lord Commander isn't even on, just to have some outlet for revenge. If not for Nightfall's intervention, he, Gary, KVN and Mooncake would've died.
  • Ship Tease: With Ash. It's mostly on her end, but after having a heart to heart, he displays a dorkly face.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: While he's switching between ages on Nightfall's ship, one has him have the same build and features of his father. The only difference being in fur color. See here.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Little Cato keeps and uses his father's helmet after the latter's apparent death.
  • Tranquil Fury: In Chapter 10, when he confronts the Lord Commander, his Pre Ass Kicking One Liner is unusually calm and cold in comparison to his outright rage during his imprisonment and the bulk of Chapter 7.
    Little Cato: I wish killing you would last a lifetime. Ready for your turn?
  • Trauma Congaline: Now where to start. He is implied to have been alone a majority of his childhood while his father was busy in the army. He gets sentenced to execution and is almost shot dead by his own aforementioned father but is spared in a moment of regret on the latters part, the following three years he is put in isolation and abused. He gets possessed and is forced to attack his father, then right as they are finally reunited his father takes a bomb for him and dies. Finaly he is injured while trying to revenge his father, gets stuck in a time machine about to explode and loses all of his new friends in another attempt to take revenge.
    • Thinking all of that's pretty horrible? In season 2: We find out that he survived the battle with the Lord Commander just to become Clarence's slave, and given how he reacts to seeing Gary again he probably thought he was the only one left. He gets stuck in a pocket in time for about 60 years after accidentally crashing into a solid shard of crystallized time. His last sight before ending up there was a K.O:ed Gary getting seemingly disintegrated and Little Cato mourns him for all of those 60 years onward. He finally manages to go back in time to save his father, but not only doesn't Avocato remember him: right as he regains his memories they are attacked by Invictus possessing Gary. The confrontation results in Avocato being possessed instead, Invictus promptly making him attempt to shoot Gary to death, Gary getting mortally wounded in the process and Little Cato being forced to shoot his own father to prevent him from finishing off the already comatose Gary. While this is going on Invictus is, through Avocato, guilt tripping Little Cato for "valuing Gary more than his biological father". We're lastly treated to a shot of Little Cato breaking down after putting Gary in the medical bay. Bear in mind that Little Cato is only 14 in a species that lives well past 500 human years.
      Gary: I know you've been dealt a bad hand, and you keep getting dealt bad hands.
  • Uncertain Doom: He gets accidentally blown out of the Lord Commander’s ship by Gary before he got the chance to get revenge on the Lord Commander. He was last seen drifting into space unconscious, wearing his father’s breathing helmet and with no apparent injuries so his fate is currently unknown. He comes back at the start of season 2, having been also taken as property by Clarence.
  • Undying Loyalty: After getting over his father's death at the tail end of Season 1, he began to show a rather extreme loyalty to Gary, being the first to rally the troops for him and generally impulsively standing for him.
  • Unwitting Pawn: It turns out the figure secretly helping him was the Lord Commander, who manipulated him into sending a distress signal to his dad in order to lead Avocato and Gary into a trap.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Ash. And Fox on a good day, with emphasis on the vitriol.
    Little Cato: Seriously? You’re like, half dead and you’re still threatening to kill me? ...Respect.
  • You Killed My Father: He desperately wants revenge on the Lord Commander for his father's death.

Crimson Light

     Clarence 

Clarence

Voiced by: Conan O'Brien
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clarencepng.png

A black market tradesman who helps Avocato and Gary infiltrate one of the Lord Commander's prison planets. Returns in season 2 to reclaim his debt and ends up reluctantly staying with the crew with his children due to a conflict with Gary and Little Cato over the ownership of the Crimson Light.


  • Ascended Extra: Originally a One-Shot Character for "Chapter 2", but has since become a main character as of season two.
  • Bi the Way: He heavily hits on Gary's mom, but he also seems to have had a recurring affair with a male Ventrexian named Catlo. Doubles as Depraved Bisexual since he is the only main character to be LGBT and literally everything he does is meant to be extremely gross.
  • Confusion Fu: He wears and sheds a series of nested skin suits from different species in “The Set Up,” and can move in them naturally to the point that one is flight capable. This makes him much more slippery during a getaway.
  • Con Man: Clarence is an obvious con artist. He has been shown so far to have conducted two scams with both ending in failure. The first was when Clarence makes a fake bidding war to sell a ship that was not his to Fraskenhaur, only to bail out of the scam when Fraskenhaur moons him. The second was when he married a queen for her crown and fortune but he loses the treasures upon being picked up by the Crimson Light.
  • Dirty Old Man: You have NO idea.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Originally helped out Gary from time to time, but betrays him and the entire Team Squad in “The Set Up” by stealing the dimensional keys for Sheryl and seriously wounding Fox (although he didn't intend to actually wound Fox to the point of nearly dying).
  • Fantastic Racism: Refers to Gary as "primate" on their first meeting, and Little Cato as "[Gary's] Ventrexian" when arguing with Gary again.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He talks like a gentleman even when scheming and double-crossing people.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears goggles and has basically no redeeming qualities, except for him actually loving his adoptive children although he doesn't love them enough to NOT shoot them.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Compared to KVN, who genuinely cares about those around him despite their annoyed attitudes at him, Clarence's status as this is justified since he’s willing to resort to betraying his new companions for a quick buck.
  • Gold Digger: Shown to be one in “The Lost Spy”. He marries the queen of Gulang-22 just so he could take her crown and fortune, using Fox and Ash as gadgets to accomplish this. However his plan fails when he accidentally drops the items he stole after being picked by the Crimson Light. It’s implied that he has done this to other women as well, having stolen things from them after poisoning them.
  • Hate Sink: "The Set Up" makes him far worse than he's ever been before. Not only does he betray the team and steal the dimensional keys for Sheryl, but he also tases and critically injures Foxnote , his own adopted son, even after Fox spared him. It's so satisfying when Gary and the others leave him behind.
  • Interspecies Adoption: His two adoptive children are from different species than him.
  • It's All About Me: Clarence is best described as a selfish, bigoted, and greedy man. He only helps Gary find dimensional keys so he could have them for himself, not caring about the fact that Gary needs them to help Bolo and Quinn. Even when he helps Gary try to find Mooncake, this too is done for selfish reasons as Clarence only cares about having Mooncake play games with him in his room. He even made a holiday for people to lavish praise upon him, and broke down when his adoptive children found the other members of the Team Squad more family than he. His most selfish act, however, was stealing the dimensional keys for Sheryl because he believed that by doing so he could win her over.
  • Jerkass: He is a selfish and racist man who placed Gary in indentured servitude and creates numerous scams. He even used his adoptive children as gadgets for the crimes he committed and went as far as attempting to murder Fox when caught stealing dimensional keys.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: There are a few moments throughout the series that imply Clarence isn't a complete dickwad. The most notable example is him adopting Fox and Ash and seemingly caring for them. Then it's revealed he's more than willing to betray them and the rest of the Team Squad, but was horrified when he learns that he almost mortally wounded Fox when he shot him!
  • Miniature Senior Citizen: The only character who doesn't dwarf him is Little Cato.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In "The Set Up", he is visibly horrified to learn that his attack on Fox nearly killed him.
  • Obviously Evil: The show doesn't even try to hide the fact that he's evil.
  • Pet the Dog
    • As much of a racist Jerkass as he is, he seems to genuinely care for Fox and Ash, his adopted children. So much so that the only reason he betrayed them was because he thought they didn't care for him anymore, and was even horrified when he learned that when he shot Fox to get away with the Dimensional Keys, the wound almost killed him.
    • In "Arachnitects", he helps Gary find Mooncake with no ulterior motive in mind (Gary even questions this at one point). He also plays a game called "Shadow Blockers" with Mooncake on a daily basis and seems to genuinely enjoy it.
  • Token Evil Teammate: He's a racist, conniving jerk who tags along on Gary's mission. He predictably betrays the team in "The Set Up".

     Ash Graven 

Ash Graven

Voiced by: Ashly Burch
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ash_fs.png

Clarence's adopted daughter. A young Serepentian woman with strange telekinetic powers who joins the crew at the start of Season 2.


  • Ax-Crazy: Violently attacks Gary after mistaking him for her childhood crush and is seen laughing menacingly while destroying corrupted KVNs with a flame thrower.
  • Badass Adorable: Similarly to Little Cato, even though she's a bit insane.
  • Berserk Button: Two so far.
    • She gets explosively angry whenever someone mentions prom to her, which she apparently had a bad experience at. On the bright side, she can exploit this to activate her powers.
    • She stops mid-battle to tell Little Cato off for calling her “Ashy.” Since Fox has done the same without provoking her, it’s possible that nickname is reserved for him.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Although it's hard to tell if she is older or younger than him, she's very protective of Fox.
  • Cyclops: Her left eye seems to be the only eye she was born with.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She and her younger sister were to be sacrificed to the fire serpent Worthred, a deity their people praised as a god, by their own parents. Once someone let slip that they would most certainly die, Ash started panicking and eventually, after being held back and forced to watch her sister get eaten, snapped and killed the other cultists; including her parents. Once the guards showed up she was chased out of the town, where she met Fox and Clarence.
  • Child Soldier: Of course, since her father is Clarence, Ash along with Fox (who are most likely adolescents) act as Clarence’s muscle for the first half of season 2, getting dragged in with his shady schemes and fighting off enemies for him when needed.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: While she's got some issues, she's seemingly much more heroic than the Lord Commander, who she has similar powers to, but a dark purple-colored as a contrast to his Light Is Not Good.
  • Emotional Powers: Her powers are triggered by anger, which for better or worse is easy for her to come by. If the circumstances alone won’t do it, she can just ask someone to mention prom.
  • Eye Scream: Downplayed: her long hair hides the right side of her face, which turns out to be missing an eye, which she was actually born without. Even so, she's still quite cute.
  • Large Ham: Not usually, but she’s prone to hammy threats and Badass Boasts during displays of her power.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She’s oddly enthusiastic about contracting a UTI, the graphic effects of snacks from her home world, and other disturbing things.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Subverted, as her visible eye is her only eye—the side under her hair is just a blank stretch of skin.
  • Power Echoes: Her voice gains a menacing distortion when she powers up.
  • Psychic Powers: A mix of telekinesis, levitation, and some kind of energy projection.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her powers are a purple color.
  • Ship Tease: With Little Cato. She the primary instigator, trying to get with him every time she gets. Though it's somewhat ambiguous if she sees him as boyfriend material, a pet, or both.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Following Nightfall's Heroic Sacrifice in the Season 2 Finale, Ash keeps her helmet just like Little Cato kept Avocato's helmet after his death in Season 1.
  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening: Her powers first emerged after she watched Worthred devour her sister as a sacrifice. Killing her parents and several other cultists while running for her life didn’t exactly improve the day from there.
  • Tsundere: Lets slip that she "kind of likes" Little Cato, then tries to backtrack.

    Fox 

Fox

Voiced by: Ron Funches
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fox_finalspace.png

Clarence's adopted son. A childish hunk of a man. Joins the crew in season 2 due to conflict over the ownership of the Crimson Light between his father and Gary and Little Cato.


  • Alien Blood: A nasty bump on the head leaves him bleeding purple.
  • Arm Cannon: His right arm has a gun where his hand would be.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He briefly wears one in "The Lost Spy".
  • The Big Guy: He is the largest member of the crew.
  • Child Soldier: For the first half of season 2, at least. Like Ash, Fox has to assist his adoptive father no matter what, whether helping him in his shady schemes or violently fighting off his enemies.
  • Determinator: Best displayed after Clarence’s betrayal. While lying on the floor with a critical injury, he drags himself through the Crimson Light with his gun arm to reactivate AVA and call for help.
  • Dumb Muscle: Fox is more about manpower than planpower.
  • Fantastic Racism: His people, the Tryvuulians, have a long history of war with Ventrexia. It's his main reason for bickering with Little Cato.
  • Flat Character: He has little to no development or backstory compared to the other crew members.
  • Gatling Good: Has a minigun for a right hand.
  • Hot-Blooded: His blood is boiling.
  • Ill Boy: The details aren’t clear, but he has to wear some form of life support device. Getting tased by Clarence damaged it, and would have killed him if not for the Heroic Sacrifice of some of KVN’s circuitry.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He is impulsive, sassy, and trash talks a lot. He does try to bond with Gary and Little Cato though.
    • He is the first to realize that Mooncake is trying to eat away his depression and tries to help him emotionally.
    • He saves Little Cato from being Thrown Out the Airlock.
  • Large Ham: He is very over-the-top and loud.
  • Manchild: He is very immature as shown in “The Happy Place” when he gets all giddy about the amusement park like ship and the fluffy creatures, until he finds out that they secretly harvest peoples happiness for energy and kill them. His childish fights with Little Cato also show this.
  • Mood-Swinger: Has a tendency to go from YELLING. VERY. LOUDLY. AND. BEING. VERY. ANGRY to become sweet and loving in a matter of seconds; just to LOSE IT AGAIN.
    • While spraying an enemy ship with bullets, he switches between laughing at how fun it is to kill people and crying over how tragic it is that he has to be the one to do it (and also makes sure to water a random plant to balance out the brutality of his shooting spree).
  • No Indoor Voice: He tends to yell or scream a lot.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His idea of an ideal father-son bonding activity is a night at the opera.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: He does this when frightened. When he does it in "The First Times They Met", Ash recognizes it as "Fox's little girl scream".
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: To Little Cato. They share a room on the Crimson Light and tend to pick fights with each other, mostly due to a case of Fantastic Racism.
  • There Was a Door: In "The Remembered," he blasts a door to smithereens without even checking to see if it was unlocked (it was).
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Little Cato, on a good day.
  • Vocal Dissonance: He speaks with a rather high-pitched voice.

     AVA 

AVA

Voiced by: Jane Lynch

The Crimson Light's AI.


  • Call a Human a "Meatbag": She refers to Gary this way in "The Remembered" when citing their relative mortality.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially towards HUE.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She grows a little more respect for HUE as the series goes on, especially after he tased Clarence. Still likes to tease him, though.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: Used to be one for HUE for most of Season 2, before she grew to like and respect him.

Other

    Nightfall 

Nightfall

Voiced by: Tika Sumpter

A mysterious individual who assists Gary from the shadows. Actually a Quinn from an alternate timeline.


  • But Now I Must Go: After introducing the crew to Bolo and giving them information they need to save the universe, she leaves, saying they don't need her anymore. At the start of the second season, she returns to the team after saving them in the Toro Regatta race and killing Lord Commander.
  • Contralto of Danger: Compared to the present Quinn, she has a more guttural voice that adds to her more world-weary and morally ambiguous demeanor.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Bolo recruited her at her darkest moment, when her timeline had fallen and she was a second away from committing suicide.
  • Future Badass: The masked figure is really a future, more grizzled version of Quinn.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: She's a morally ambiguous character with some scars over her eye.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the season 2 finale, she acts as the sixth key for Mooncake to destroy along with the five dimensional keys in order to free Bolo.
  • The Mourning After: Her Gary died twenty years ago from her perspective, and it's all but stated they were romantically involved.
  • Mysterious Protector: The masked figure watches over Gary and his allies, subtly helping them to ensure their survival.
  • One-Man Army: She effortlessly carves through the SAMES when she gets onboard the Galaxy One.
  • Promotion to Opening Titles: As of Season 2, she's been added to the intro.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: In episode 4 she gives a brief one to Mooncake, telling him that where ever he goes death follows and it will endanger Gary.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Under all that armor she's a woman, specifically a version of Quinn from the future.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Is apparently trying to do this, especially with an incident involving Gary getting hurt, or even killed, because of Mooncake. In episode 7 she reveals she's been to hundreds of timelines and in each one the Lord Commander kills Gary, which causes Mooncake to go insane with rage and open Final Space, freeing the Titans which lay waste to the universe.
  • Shoot the Dog: In episode 7 she tries to murder Mooncake to stop him from causing the apocalypse. To be fair to her, she'd already made hundreds of attempts to go back and right history, so her desperation isn't unreasonable.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her identity as Quinn from the future and her motivations for coming back in time are major spoilers.

    Tribore Menendez 

Tribore Menendez

Voiced by: Olan Rogers
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tribor1.jpg

Quinn's friend and contact in the Infinity Guard after she went rogue. Has a habit of asking rhetorical questions in a needlessly dramatic whisper, then answering by saying "It is."


  • Action Fashionista: One of his many quirks is an obsession with improving his outfit, and fashion advice is an easy way to bribe him. When it comes to a fight, all this does is make dishing out a Curb-Stomp Battle look good.
  • Advertised Extra: Downplayed in Season One. He was featured prominently in the trailers and Season One's opening, but is virtually irrelevant for most of the first few episodes and missing during the middle-late half. He does come back in the final two episodes though.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Tribore lisps very frequently and in chapter 3, he crossdresses as a girl and wears lipstick and earrings while rummaging through Quinn's belongings. He also flat out ignores the flirtatious advances of Shannon Thunder, a human female resistance member. He is shown hugging Quinn's leg in the opening, but he's not shown to be attracted to her in the show and seems to simply be to her what KVN is to Gary. He is also seen calling his "friend" Richard on the phone in the season 2 episode "The Grand Surrender," getting angry that he's with another man called Dan.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Quirks aside, he’s a very effective battlefield commander and takes Todd down single-handed with an almost casual ease.
  • Birds of a Feather: Due to their mutual ditziness, he immediately hits it off with Gary.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: He switches between "goods" every six months.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Tribore mostly seems like a plucky comic relief character who remains out of focus for most of season one. Then the penultimate episode roles around and it turns out he's formed a resistance that's fighting against the corrupt Infinity Guard and he proves instrumental in locating the bomb needed to close the breech into Final Space.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Tribore isn't really all there.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: On the surface, Tribore seems like a useless ditz. Then episode nine reveals that for all his quirks he's actually a complete badass who formed a resistance movement to fight back against the corrupt Infinity Guard. When he goes around the Galaxy in season 2, he starts freeing and helping species and when called to help out, he can curb stomp Todd.
  • The Ditz: He's one of the ditziest characters in the series, and with Gary as the lead, that's saying something. He's so clueless that he takes time out of warning Quinn that the Infinity Guard are right on her tail to try on her makeup and clothes.
  • Extra Eyes: He has six eyes total.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Nobody in the Crimson Light really cares about him that much and like KVN and Clarence, his annoying nature tends to get on Gary's nerves. Demonstrated perfectly in Arachnitects, where nobody is bothered with Tribore leaving the ship for good.
  • Friend on the Force: He remains Quinn's ally in the Infinity Guard even after she goes rogue. Unfortunately he's too clueless to be much help, or so it seems.
  • Gender Bender: Claims to switch between sets of "goods" every six months.
  • Humanoid Alien: He's a green-skinned alien with an antenna and six eyes.
  • Rebel Without a Cause: In season 2, he still fashions himself as leader of La Résistance long after the Infinity Guard rebellion.
  • La Résistance: Turns out he's actually the leader of a resistance movement within the Infinity Guard.
  • Literal-Minded: Tribore doesn't seem to understand when Quinn's asking a rhetorical question or using sarcasm.
    Tribore: Why would they be twiddling their wieners? Why?
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He bears a strong resemblance to the little green men from Toy Story.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: For himself, unfortunately for Shannon Thunder. Since he switches gender every six months, his male incarnation is in love with his female incarnation and vice-versa.
  • Supporting Leader: Turns out, while the heroes were having their own adventures, Tribore was forming a resistance to fight against the corrupt Infinity Guard. He calls on his army for aid during the heroes' battle against the Lord Commander in the season one finale.
  • Uncertain Doom: During chapter 10, his ship gets shot down while he was still inside it, causing it to spin out of control. However, that ship was never seen exploding or crash landing.
    • As of Season 2 Episode 2, he is confirmed to be alive and joins Gary's crew by the end of the episode.
  • Verbal Tic: Does he tend to phrase his thoughts in the form of a question and then answer it immediately? Yes, he does.
