    Main Characters 

Henry Hart/Kid Danger

Portrayed by: Jace Norman
The titular protagonist. Captain Man's new sidekick.
  • Alliterative Name: Henry Hart.
  • The Apprentice: Captain Man chooses Henry as his sidekick so he can take over for him one day.
  • Big Brother Instinct: In a literal sense to Piper on occasion, when it really counts.
    • He is also quite protective of Charlotte, and tries to defend her as much as possible, like in S4 E5, Brawl in the Hall.
    • When Ray tries to erase Piper's memories completely after she finds out their identities, he and Piper struggle to get the mind wiper out of Ray's hands...and unintentionally erase his mind in the process.
  • Body Horror: His body gets progressively more buff and hairy to the point where he starts looking like a werewolf after being hit by the "manly" ray.
    • In the two-part "Indestructible Henry,", Henry gains the ability to breathe fire when he laughs. He immediately realizes how terrible it was.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Henry sacrifices his super fast reflexes in order to destroy Twittler's virus.
  • Catchphrase: "Feels goooood!"
  • Dating Catwoman: Henry gets a crush on Veronika, who is part of a tagger group known as the Wall Dogs.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Henry drinks out of a bottle of chocolate syrup after he gets fired from being Kid Danger. When Charlotte takes it away, he pulls out another one.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: He's had temporary powers before, but now has permanent super-powers as of Hour of Power.
  • Evil Costume Switch: He gets this after he joins the Wall Dogs in "Henry and the Bad Girl Part 2". Though it is just his Kid Danger outfit spray painted with darker colors.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: In the animated spinoff, Henry sleeps in his heart-printed boxers.
  • Fake Defector: Henry does this in "Henry and the Bad Girl" by pretending to have turned against Captain Man and using Veronika's feelings for him to join the Wall Dogs in order to find their hideout and leader. Though Henry's feelings for Veronika turn out to be genuine.
  • Flash Step: Although we knew that Henry's power made him fast, in Dodging Danger, he showed that he's fast enough to pull down the pants of a guy he's having a conversation in the middle of a crowded room without anyone noticing that he even moved DURING that conversation.
  • Grammar Nazi: Henry is this in "Spoiler Alert" when he's correcting Ray's grammar.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Has honey-blonde hair and is the hero of the show.
  • Hero Insurance: Averted, Captain Man and Henry stop a criminal from robbing an antique bottle store. However, their fight with the robber destroys nearly every glass bottle in the store. The owner is upset about this and makes them clean up the whole store.
  • Hopeless Suitor: In "Danger & Thunder", he has a crush on Phoebe Thunderman, who is two years older than him.
  • Hypocrite: He gets mad at Bianca when she kisses Kid Danger since she's supposed to be dating him (and she doesn't know he's Kid Danger), but Henry later kisses Veronika while he's Kid Danger even though he is still dating Bianca.
  • Kid Hero: Unofficially, as he is the main protagonist, he's not a hero in his own right.
  • Kid Sidekick: Officially this to Captain Man. Aspires to be sidekick of the century.
  • Little Mister Badass: Henry's very tough for a fourteen year old, able to engage in fights with actual villains and grown men (though not to an truly unrealistic extent as he can still be overpowered if someone stronger manages to get hold of him).
  • Man, I Feel Like a Woman: In "Henry the Man-Beast", Henry is put into a machine that will cure him of being a man-beast. Instead, he comes out as a female version of himself and his reaction is to shake his hips and state, "I feel so...different."
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Not to too much an unrealistic degree, but although thin and seemingly scrawny, Henry is quite strong. With a single punch he was able to cause Jasper (whose is considerably bulkier and huskier than him) to collapse to the ground in pain and left him unable to move for a reasonable while.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Charlotte. Both of them agree that the mere thought of dating each other is disgusting.
  • Real Men Eat Meat: While under the effects of the manly ray, he orders a giant raw steak.
  • Super Speed: Henry's new superpower. He can move and percieve things at super-speed, and also has enhanced reflefes to go along with it (to let him dodge or catch things with his speed). He loses it early on in Season 5.
  • Thou Shall Not Kill: Averted. He and Captain Man have no problem offing The Toddler in the pilot.
  • Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: In "Mo' Danger Mo' Problems", it shows an instance on how hard Henry has it trying to balance heroics, school, and family.

Ray Manchester/Captain Man

Portrayed by: Cooper Barnes
Superhero and Henry's boss. He gained the power of invulnerability in an accident in his father's lab when he was 8.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Mostly to Henry, and on multiple occasions, he is shown to be quite protective of Charlotte.
  • Big Brother Mentor: To Henry.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Happens in "Tears of the Jolly Beetle" when he loses his invulnerability, he regains it at the end of the episode.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Eccentric, goofy & a bit dull, but one of the greatest superheroes around.
  • Butt-Monkey: Played with. He's a competent and effective hero, but due to being Nigh Invulnerable, people often hit him with various things because they know he can survive it no issue...but he still feels pain and his outfits aren't always as invincible as himself.
  • Captain Superhero: Guess what the second word is.
  • The Casanova: Has a way with ladies. Best pointed out when he meets one of Henry's teachers and is already making out with her in minutes.
  • Catchphrase: "I'm Okay!"
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Will blatantly flirt with almost any pretty girl he sees, including making it clear he has the hots for Henry's mom, but also adhered to a strict Wouldn't Hit a Girl code in Let's Make A Steal and is, through all of his quirks, a Nice Guy (he is a superhero, after all.)
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Captain is often seen "marching to the beat of his own drum". This awkwardness is implied to have been cultivated due to his non-standard superhero training upbringing he was given to by his father after he the accident.
  • Deuteragonist: The second lead of the show after Henry.
  • Hero Insurance: Averted, Captain Man and Henry stop a criminal from robbing an antique bottle store. However, their fight with the robber destroys nearly every glass bottle in the store. The owner is upset about this and makes them clean up the whole store.
  • Hero with an F in Good: Where do we begin?
    • He constantly tries to hit on Siren Hart, tranquilizes villains without letting them explain their motives- the villain could have been abused for all we know- and he likes to play favorites, and abuses his superhero status.
  • Kryptonite Factor: The tears of a Jolly Beetle can take away Captain Man's invulnerability.
  • Manchild: Ray can tend to slip into a rather childish demeanor at times, would is also implied to be because of the aforementioned non-standard upbringing.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Thanks to a molecular density machine, Captain Man cannot be injured, though he still feels pain.
  • No-Sell: Subverted. Captain Man can't really do this despite being Nigh Invulnerable because he still feels pain.
  • Screw Learning, I Have Phlebotinum!: Captain Man's H.R.Z. can upload knowledge to a person's brain. It does have some side effects like mixing up words in sentences and the user involuntarily Screams Like a Little Girl that last for a few days.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Most notably in season 3.
  • Thou Shall Not Kill: Averted. He and Henry have no problem offing The Toddler in the pilot. Though he does come back in the crossover with The Thundermans.

Charlotte Page

Portrayed by: Riele Downs
One of Henry's best friends.
  • Badass in Distress: Invoked in "The Beat Goes On", when she is kidnapped by Dr. Minyak and Nurse Cohort. She is brain warped, and Ray, Henry, and Schwaz had to save her.
  • Black Best Friend: Is African-American and one of Henry's closest friends.
  • Brainy Brunette: She's a bright student who excels at research and hacking and uses these skills to help Henry and Captain Man on missions.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Is quick to snark about the zany things going on.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: She is frequently the brightest of the three due to her Only Sane Woman role. However she can't fight, so she isn't much help when it comes to actually confronting the villains.
  • Little Miss Badass: On multiple occasions. She takes down the man who stole Henry's mom's purse, Ray easily (They are both fully grown men, and she's barely over 5 feet tall),and she's an incredible sharp shoot. Let's just say, don't mess with Charlotte. Especially when she's pissed.
  • The Not-Love Interest: Is this to Henry, much to the fans' dismay.
  • Only Sane Woman: Charlotte often plays this role, being the voice of reason or of the obvious. She was the one who did her research in the Phone Shark, and when confronted with the task of getting a pickle from the tightly screwed jar, she retrieves it by simply smashing the jar open, an obvious in hindsight tactic that had Ray and Henry stumped.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Henry. Both think that the mere thought of dating each other is disgusting.
  • Sassy Black Woman: Downplayed. As she lacks the attitude and cockiness of most, but she certainly is sassy.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In "The Space Rock", Charlotte is the first person to escape the area when the "space bug" is around. She's also the first gone when the lockdown in "Cave In" has ended.
  • Secret Keeper: Becomes the first one in "The Secret Gets Out" after finding out Henry's secret.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: Of the main cast she is easily the shortest, and easily the smartest.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Subverted. Even though she and Piper are the only girls in the main cast, they hardly have any scenes together, and don't interact that much. Could be compared to Two Girls to a Team.
  • Teens Are Short: Subverted. Even though she, Henry, and Jasper are all the same age, she's the shortest out of all of them.

Jasper Dunlop

Portrayed by: Sean Ryan Fox
One of Henry's best friends.
  • Big Brother Instinct: In Brawl In the Hall he wants to protect Charlotte, and tries to talk Bysh out of fighting her.
  • Butt-Monkey: Sometimes, particularly around Piper.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Jasper comes off like this at times, though maybe not as much Sydney and Oliver.
  • Collector of the Strange: He collects buckets and bucket-shaped things like barrels.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Although Jasper is their friend, Henry and Charlotte are constantly exasperated by him. The fact that Jasper embarrasses them on a regular basis doesn't help.
  • Secret Keeper: Becomes the second one after "I Know Your Secret". Of course, he has to work at the store in order to keep Henry's secret
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Most notably in season 3, when he learned Henry's secret, and started hanging out with Ray.

Piper Hart

Portrayed by: Ella Anderson
Henry's little sister.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Frequently tries to get Henry in trouble with their parents. However, Henry doesn't treat her well either.
  • Berserk Button: While normally a bratty, high strung little girl, she generally is merely manipulative, not violent. Attack Kid Danger when she's around and she'll beat you up as seen in the episode Spoiler Alert. Basically, ANYTHING wll set her off.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Has a habit of yelling when she doesn't get her way.
  • Catchphrase: "I am not okay!"
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Piper delivers one to Jasper in the first part of the two parter "One Henry, Three Girls". After Jasper uses Piper's rare glass hat as a bowl for chili, destroying it in the microwave, Piper promises to be the lookout when Jasper uses the girls' room at the park (the boys' room was closed). Instead, she gets the police and tells them Jasper scared her in the bathroom and that he may have a knife. He was ultimately arrested.
  • Kick the Dog: Deliberately throwing away the last slice of cake her parents had saved ever since their wedding day because it had gluten in it when she was on a "no gluten" trend.
  • Large Ham: Has a rather loud and boisterous personality.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Falls victim to this in "The Secret Gets Out" and "The Space Rock".
  • Lethal Chef: As revealed in "Indestructible Henry". At Henry's tenth birthday party everyone hated the cake so much that Henry repeatedly stabbed the cake trying to kill it.
  • Loves My Alter Ego: As shown in the beginning of "Tears of the Jolly Beetle", Piper adores Kid Danger and even thinks he's hot, which of course completely contrasts her usual behavior towards Henry. Neither sentiment is acceptable to Henry and Charlotte immediately tells Piper that she really shouldn't be saying that.
  • Phoneaholic Preteen: Piper has an obsession with being on her phone, checking the latest updates and what's trending. Getting in the way of this, will turn her brattiness up to Eleven.
  • No Indoor Voice: She frequently screams even when she's inside the house.
    I'm not okay!
  • Pet the Dog: Two instances in "Henry The Man-Beast" she showed genuine concern for Henry when his hand was bleeding and when he was growing pit hair inhumanly fast.
    • She also acts as Jasper's life coach in "The Bucket Trap" and actually helps him try to keep his secret, despite her methods in helping him do so.
  • Secret Keeper: Becomes the third one after two-parter "Sister Twister" when she stumbles into the Man-Cave and seeing Henry transforms in front of her eyes.

Schwoz

Ray's friend who made most of the tech in the Man Cave.
  • Amazon Chaser: If his ideal woman is any indication.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Schwoz is quite eccentric and bordering on the strange, however he is undeniably a genius.
  • Ditzy Genius: Brilliant at building tech, but lacks some actual common sense.
  • Fake Guest Star: Michael Cohen has never been credited as a starring cast member despite essentially being one ever since his introduction. Season 5 fixes this.
  • Funny Foreigner: No nationality has been specified, but he speaks with a Russian accent.
  • Non-Action Guy: Even more so than Charlotte.
  • Second Episode Introduction: Well, more like ninth episode, but he becomes a regular recurring character after he's introduced and is shown to be quite a necessary staple around the Man Cave due to the fact the he built and is the only one who can really maintain its many high-tech gadgets.
  • Secret Keeper: Knows Captain Man's secrets.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: Is around the same height as Charlotte, and its the groups tech guy.
  • The Smart Guy: Of the group, Schwoz is the one who makes and maintains most of the tech in the Man Cave, and normally comes up with the scientific solutions.

    Recurring Characters 

Sidney Birnbaum


Oliver Pook


  • Asian and Nerdy: More nerdy than even Sidney.
  • The Stoic: He speaks in a monotone voice, even in exciting situations.
  • Those Two Guys: With Sidney, though he does appear in episodes without him unlike the other way around.

Mr. Gooba Gooch

The shopkeeper of Junk'N'Stuff.

    Villains 

The Toddler


  • Character Death: He's knocked into a bottomless pit and blown up with a bomb. Ultimately subverted, because he survived into the crossover with The Thundermans.
  • Depraved Dwarf: He's a dwarf who's supervillain theme is babies.
  • Eldritch Abomination: His army of mutant babies.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He says this word for word after being dropped in the bottomless pit, and blown up by his own bomb.
  • Mister Big: See Depraved Dwarf.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: You'd think that his campy demeanor would make him a joke, but he makes a bridge collapse, putting peoples lives in danger, and his evil scheme involved turning babies into mutant monsters.
  • Starter Villain: The main villain of the pilot. Unlikely to return considering he was killed off...but he wasn't.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Experiments on a baby with a chemical that turns it into a mutant monster. It's kind of understandable why The Toddler was killed off. Except he wasn't.

The Phone Shark

A man who eats phones.

Dr. Minyak


  • And Then What?: Played for Laughs, when he states he will be able to do whatever he wants once he rids the city of Captain Man. His minion, Mrs. Cohort asks him what does he want to do and Minyak gives an annoyed "I don't know!"
  • Card-Carrying Villain: When asked about why he doing what he does he claims its cause he wants to.
  • Deadpan Snarker: "I know. I was being disrespectful."
  • Evil Brit: An all around bad guy, who speaks with British accent.
  • Faux Affably Evil
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Kid Danger and Captain Man end up taking him and his assistant down with an altered version of the rap lyrics, they used to brainwash Charlotte.
  • Karma Houdini: In his first appearance, he makes a break for it. This is a Dan Schnieder show, so don't be so shocked. On the upside, he does say that he will be back.
    • He does return in the premier of the second season. This time he doesn't get away.
  • Laughably Evil: A dangerous Mad Scientist sure, but he's witty and eccentric enough to still be funny.
  • Mad Scientist: His main stick, in his first appearance he uses the tears of the Jolly beetle to take Captain Man's invunerablity. In his second, he brainwashes Charlotte to kill Captain Man and Kid Danger, then artificially gives her superhuman strength to pull of the task.
  • Mind-Control Music: He pays a kid rapper named Li'l Biggie to perform this on Charlotte to make her destroy Captain Man and Kid Danger.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Sure he's goofy and eccentric, but he's also undisputedly a tough villain for the heroes to fight.

Drill Finger

An evil dentist who wears a mask.
  • Face–Heel Turn: He was a dentist before turning to a life of crime.
  • Karma Houdini: Due to being The Unfought.
  • The Unfought: Captain Man & Kid Danger don't confront him face to face since he was in Nebraska and Captain Man only protects Swellview.
    • Eventually is fought in "Double Date Danger" when he comes to Swellview for malicious reasons.
  • Would Hurt a Child: In "Double Date Danger", Drill Finger removed the teeth from at least one young teen and was going to do the same with Piper and her boyfriend.

Jeff

A dumb, incompetent criminal who can never commit a crime properly.

The Spoiler

A teen that spoils the endings of shows and movies.
  • Evil Is Petty: See Jerkass.
  • Jerkass: Unlike the other villains he doesn't have any large scale plans or anything to gain from ruining people's experiences, he just seems to enjoy doing so.
  • Walking Spoiler: A literal example, as Spoiler Alert's sole gimmick is to spoil the endings of TV shows and movies.

Veronika

A female vandal who's a member of the Wall Dogs
  • Anti-Villain: She and the other Wall Dogs see themselves as such, stating that they are only artists expressing themselves. More significant then the other Wall Dogs, as her feelings for Henry appear to be genuine.
  • Catchphrase: Anyone who doesn't agree with or understand the Wall Dogs actions is referred to as a "Herbert" by her and the other members.
  • Crocodile Tears: When Henry calls her a punk in response to her Motive Rant, she stars crying when he tries to apologize she quits faking and handcuffs him to a cleaning machine.
  • Femme Fatale: She gets Henry to join the Wall Dogs by kissing and seducing him. Or so she thinks.

Courtney Sham

A girl revealed to have been going out with Jasper in "Jasper's Real Girlfriend"
  • Ax-Crazy: Tries to kill Charlotte at the drop of the hat, and ends up chasing her, Henry and Jasper with what is pretty much a chainsaw.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Sure she seems sweet at first, but then she resorts to attempted murder based on a misunderstanding.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: She tries to knock a cell fan on Charlotte when she gets the wrong idea that Jasper has romantic feelings for her.

Time Jerker

A villain who does time related crime and puns.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: His time machine becomes the plot element for various episodes, like when Henry used it to make his bad day good only to make it his friends' bad day, when Henry used it to go back in time to find a bird declared extinct in modern times so he can cure Piper of Ox Pox and Drex used it as part of his plot to erase Captain Man from existance.
  • Pungeon Master: Makes lots of time jokes.
  • Time Machine: He created one. The problem with it is that it has trouble retrieving the subject and returning them to the present. Henry once used it to find a bird declared extinct in modern times so he can cure Piper of Ox Pox. It later becomes part of Drex's plot to erase Captain Man and Kid Danger from ever forming.

Drex

A criminal who was Captain Man's Original Sidekick

Frankini

A Social Media Manic who almost exposed their identities of Captain Man and Kid Danger
  • Camp Gay / Camp Straight: It isn't stated what his sexuality is, but he is definitely, absolutely camp.
  • The Danza: Frankini is played by Frankie Grande, brother of former Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: In "Captain Man-kini", in order to stop a web celebrity from harming an elderly woman, Captian Man swaps bodies with Frankini
  • Near-Villain Victory: Had Schwoz not knocked out the power Just in Time, the heroes would have revealed their identities to the city, and Frankini would have been victorious.
