Father /Benedict Uno
"Bravo, Mr. Uno. You managed to skillfully outwit a bunch of children. The question is, do you have what it takes to play with the big boys?"

The mysterious head villain, Father is a man who wears a suit of shadows and is skilled in very dark powers. He schemes to enslave all children and turn them into his twisted version of "delightful". But despite his dark and malicious appearance, sometimes all he wants to do is curl up in a bathrobe with some Rocky Road. He is voiced by Maurice LaMarche as Father and Jeff Bennett as Benedict Uno.

  • Abusive Parents: To say he's abusive to his adopted children is putting it mildly. He's perfectly cordial when they're succeeding in their evil plans, but the moment they trip up, he treats them with the same contempt and fury as his fellow villains, with the Delightful Children being visibly terrified of incurring his wrath. And that's not even getting into the fact that they're only his kids because he used a horrible, irreversible brainwashing on them.
  • Achilles' Heel: Since he typically plays with fire, he can be rendered helpless by large amounts of water or cold substances, like ice cream. Strangely, he eats it occasionally, especially when depressed.
  • Adorkable: His child self can qualify as this. As for his adult version, it depends.
  • Arch-Enemy: To the Kids Next Door in general and Numbuh 1 in particular.
  • Animal Motifs: When transformed by his own animal beam, he becomes a black panther—being a sleek, dignified but also vicious predator, it fits with his overall persona.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: You've gotta admit, Benedict Uno has a nice ring to it.
  • Berserk Button: Steal his signature pipe, and you're dragon food.
  • Big Bad: He's the ultimate leader of the evil adult forces that the KND are fighting against. Even though only the Delightful Children and the Teen Ninjas directly work for him, the other villains respect him enough to let him take charge when he's around.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: In Operation: Z.E.R.O., he was the villain, but as soon as Grandfather was awakened, Father was terrified of him. He did try to fight him later on, but he knows how much of a threat Grandfather is, so he gave up, before the fight really started.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Despite his demonic looks, he's really a lazy bum that lets his kids do all the work for him.
  • Break the Haughty: Learning that his dad wanted nothing to do with him in the movie really sobered him up.
  • Butt-Monkey: In the movie, at least.
  • Burning with Anger: Not just Wreathed in Flames, but they increase in intensity when angry.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Numbuh Zero's Abel.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He knows he's evil and completely revels in it.
  • Child Hater: Hates children with a passion, and formed a league of super adults to teach them a lesson.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Kinda becomes this through Villain Decay.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: It is established in the episode "Operation: C.A.K.E.D.-F.O.U.R." and the comic story "Operation: H.I.S.T.O.R.I.E." that he owns a company called Evil Adult Industries, Inc., which doesn't seem to serve any purpose other than to make things miserable for children.
  • Cowardly Lion: A villainous example. He is too afraid of Grandfather, which is why the latter has a disdain for him.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: He created the schemes for his children and teen armies. to follow and tried to destroy the KND more than once.
  • Didn't See That Coming: After managing to trick the entirety of the KND in "Operation G.R.A.D.U.A.T.E.S." so that Father can turn every active operative into animals, Tommy of all people is the only one to figure out that it only works on active operatives. Cue Tommy removing himself from the Kids Next Door and adding Father to it. Though, this also turns right back around on the KND in "Operation I.T.", when this lets Father become the Supreme Leader by technically being an operative.
  • Dirty Coward: Despite his fearsome appearance and actions, he's this underneath the facade. He's perfectly intimidating and fierce while in control of things, but if faced with something he's scared of he breaks down quickly. The entire reason Numbuh Zero had to save the world without him both times is he chickened out of facing Grandfather while his brother was brave enough to stand up to him.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In the finale, he wants to kill Numbuh 1 for stealing his pipe.
  • Distinguished Gentleman's Pipe: He's sometimes seen with this, and it's why he brings back his evil persona for the finale because it got stolen.
  • Does Not Like Spam: He hates broccoli. In fact, he claims that everyone hates it, and that the only reason that adults make kids eat it is so that they don't have to. In fact, in "Operation: I.T.", Numbuh 362 was able to subdue him by threatening to forcefeed it to him. However, this is justified in his case because Grandfather forcefed it to him in such a way that traumatized him for life.
  • The Dreaded: Especially in season 2. Even after Villain Decay set in, he was easily the KND's worst enemy... Until Grandfather, who is this trope to Father. It's revealed that even the Galactic KND fear him, as searching "Father" in the database results "DANGER DANGER DANGER".
  • Enemy Mine:
    • With the KND in Operation: Z.E.R.O. He wimps out when he loses the motivation.
    • A smaller, Played for Laughs one in "Operation: M.U.N.C.H.I.E.S." when he teams up with Sector V and the other villains to stop Knightbrace from destroying the last box of Rainbow Munchies cereal in the villains' supermarket. At the end of the episode, he and Numbuh 1 are seen happily eating the cereal together, along with everyone else.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Say what you will about his relationships with his father, his nephew, and even his own children, but the guy does seem to genuinely care about his brother. If it wasn't for what their dad did, he would be a good parent in the present.
    • Deconstructed with his dad. His devotion to his father is his primary motivation for evil, wanting his love, affection and respect, despite it from being a terrible person. One gets the feeling that if he finally moved on from his dad (and subsequently realize that he shouldn't be like him), he'd probably be in a better place in his life.
  • Evil Is Petty: He once tried to kill Nigel for stealing his pipe.
  • Evil Is Burning Hot: Is it ever.
  • Evil Is Hammy: You can tell Maurice LaMarche is having way too much fun with this role.
  • Evil Plan: One in each episode but the overarching is one to bring down the KND organization.
  • Evil Uncle: To Nigel.
  • Freudian Excuse: Father's entire messed up state can be blamed on his father, Grandfather. A cruel tyrant who manages to outdo Benedict in the evil category, he was too much of a coward to stand up to him and it's implied that he turned to evil as a result. Grandfather showed little leniency to his children; heck, he preferred Monty, Ben's older brother, over him, if because it's implied he had the guts to stand up for himself, unlike Ben. From a traumatic fear of eating broccoli to perhaps his entire motivation for doing evil things and tormenting children, it can all be traced back to Grandfather.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: They can also shoot blasts of fire.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Through Flanderization.
  • Hates Being Touched: He has a hatred for physical affection even though his fiery exterior isn't touchable in the slightest.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Father's fire powers are this in certain episodes.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Can in ways be seen as this.
  • Informed Ability: Is mentioned to be stronger than Grandfather, though he can't stand up to him. Justified, as he seems to be too weak willed to actually maintain the level of anger needed to access his full power.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • What he did to Sector Z aka his adopted children is pretty horrifying. He also forced them to use the Delightfulzer to turn all kids into themselves.
    • It was downright cruel in "Operation: C.A.K.E.D.-F.O.U.R." when he mocked Numbuh 2 for believing his father's stories of using Betsy to win every Toobathon and dismissed Numbuh 2's father as a shameful loser right in front of the boy.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Before the decay set in, he was taken very seriously whenever he showed up.
  • Logical Weakness: His fire powers mean that he can be defeated by cold things like ice cream or water.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: In The Movie he reveals he's Numbuh 2's uncle, though not his actual father as his name might make you think. Of course, Nigel is horrified by this reveal, especially since it meant Grandfather was literally his grandfather.
  • The Man Behind the Man: In the earlier episodes, the Delightful Children were the main villains, though he was mentioned in the first episode. In "Operation: C.A.N.N.O.N." the Delightfuls mention a curfew alert stating that they had to leave their butt whupping on Sector V or else Father would be angry.
  • Manchild / Psychopathic Manchild: Ironically, he has a tendency to act no more mature than most of the Kids he battles. At one point, he even ends up becoming their leader (part of a convoluted plan to infest the KND treehouses with broccoli).
  • Meaningful Name: His real name comes from real life figure Benedict Arnold who was best known as a traitor to the U.S during the Revolutionary War. As shown in the movie, when given the chance to fight against Grandfather alongside Numbuh Zero, B. Uno was too scared to do so and exits, not once but twice.
  • Miles Gloriosus: To a degree. He is extremely powerful and genuinely dangerous...so long as he's the one in control. Underneath his apparent serious and imposing facade, he's more or less crippled by self-esteem issues and rather cowardly. He's only composed and in control when he's not faced with something more powerful than himself or he's got a fear of.
  • Moral Myopia: Has own experiences of child abuse from his father, yet is perfectly fine with bullying kids during his grown up years.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: The rather bizarre episode "Operation ARCHIVE" implies that Father was the first adult to spank a child and eventually led the adults in revolt against children and taking over the world (the episode is a parody of The Animatrix and portrays children as originally having created the adults for entertainment and labor). Operation: Z.E.R.O. would establish that he has a very different origin, namely the brother of the legendary Numbuh Zero and Numbuh 1's uncle
  • Negated Moment of Awesome: In Operation: Z.E.R.O., Father was all fired up and angry and just about to call out his old man...only to lose the motivation and ditch his brother to go eat ice cream. Though in this case it was due to his lack of self-esteem and general emotional exhaustion more than anything else. That moment all but confirmed Father was actually stronger than Grandfather, but thanks to his horrible childhood and a horrible day in general, he more or less gives up. To top it off, the day ends with his mansion destroyed as he was eating ice cream.
    Father: I hate everyone.
  • Nerd in Evil's Helmet: It's shown in Operation Z.E.R.O that his shadowy appearance is just an illusion generated by his powers. Underneath, he's actually a nerdish man with suspenders and glasses. This was actually revealed before, when his counterpart in the Mirror Universe appeared. That version, being a good guy, doesn't have the originals disguise or his powers and thus still retain their original appearance.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: His powers generally remain consistent. But he has displayed one-time powers depending on the writer like Mind over Matter (Operation: C.A.K.E.D.-F.I.V.E.) and Me's a Crowd. (Operation: I.T.)
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His voice is a parody of Kirk Douglas, which LaMarche previously used on Animaniacs.
  • No Indoor Voice: He screams. A LOT.
    Father: KNIGHTBRACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You're gonna share those Rainbow Munchies with me? AREN'T YOU?!?
  • One-Winged Angel/Scaled Up: In "Operation I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W", he takes on the form of a dragon.
  • Outside-Context Problem: At the time of his debut the Kids Next Door had never dealt with anything other than supertech using villains or engineered monstrosities while Father on the other hand possesses outright supernatural if not demonic powers. This stays true after his debut with even other supernatural enemies being something completely different to him.
  • Playing with Fire: Gets it from his dad.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: "Shall we begin?!"
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He is sometimes seen wearing pink on his off-days.
  • Sinister Silhouettes: Before the reveal in "Operation G.R.O.W.U.P" only his fiery silhouette was visible.
  • Standard '50s Father: His silhouette is intended to invoke this with his pipe, conservative haircut and sharp, clean lines. His personality on the other hand, is anything but wholesome.
  • Straw Loser: Grandfather makes him look like one compared to him.
  • Superpowerful Genetics: All the powers he has seem to have been inherited from his father.
  • The Unfavorite: Grandfather favored Zero over him, mostly because unlike him, Father was too spineless to stand up for himself.
  • The Unfought: He is the main villain of Operation: V.I.D.E.O.G.A.M.E., but is never faced in a boss fight.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: He generally serves as the most serious threat to the KND, mainly due to his demonic powers. However, he is shown to have a comedic side in later episodes.
  • Villains Out Shopping: He did this once when looking for Rainbow Munchies.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: To his father, Grandfather, until he told him to beat it and chewed him out of his plan.
  • The Worf Effect: When fighting Grandfather, he was kicked off easily, and though he almost managed to stand up to him, he gives up out of frustration and misery. Before that, it was hinted that Father is actually MORE powerful than Grandfather but is crippled by his crappy childhood and self-esteem issues.
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: His pyrokinesis can spiral out of control when he's angry, to the point of it transforming him into a fire-breathing dragon (see Operation I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S.). Even Grandfather and Numbuh Zero have looks of horror when he gets pushed too far.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds

    Chad Dickson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chad_dickson.png
Chad Dickson / formerly Numbuh Two Seventy-Four

"There was no way I was going to turn over everything I ever built, everything I ever worked for, to a bunch of snot-nosed kids!"

Former Supreme Leader of the Kids Next Door, idolized and loved by all, he turned evil the moment he turned thirteen. He then served as a high-ranking member of the Teen Ninjas, and lost all the respect he had to his name. Generally cocky and approving of himself, both before and after his betrayal. Voiced by Jason Harris.

  • 100% Adoration Rating: Prior to his fake defection, he was perhaps the most beloved Kids Next Door operative of all time. This is why everyone took his betrayal so badly.
  • The Ace: Prior to his defection, he was considered to be the best KND operative on the planet. He was skilled, talented, handsome, and was involved with several extracurricular activities on top of running the entire KND organization. He had trading cards, action figures — all of his subordinates had idolized him. He was the best of the best, and he knew it.
    • Broken Ace: For all his skill, Chad's a tool that is obsessed with being the best. Nigel gradually comes to this realization over the course of "Operation: T.R.E.A.T.Y.", which is he can't find it in himself to forgive Chad even after learning Chad was never a traitor to the KND.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Numbuh 1. Their fight in "Operation: T.R.E.A.T.Y." is easily one of the most personal ones on the show, as the two actively tried to kill each other. In fact, Chad is one of the only enemies, if not the only enemy, that Nigel has ever wanted to kill. Not even the Delightful Children and Father had ever pushed him as far as Chad had that episode.
  • Becoming the Mask: Sort of. He's faking treachery and is a secret teen operative for the KND... however, after many defeats, his hatred for Numbuh 1 becomes real and he tries to kill him in his final appearance on the show.
  • Badass Normal: He manages to be a formidable enemy of the Kids Next Door in spite of being a normal human being.
  • Badass in Distress: The GKND teaser shows him as a captive of the titular organization, literally begging Nigel not to do whatever his superiors want him to do. Considering Chad's personality and bad history with Nigel, it goes to show how desperate the situation must be.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Was this when he was still Numbuh 274, most notably to Numbuh 1.
  • Blinding Bangs: When he's still Numbuh 274, he switches between this and Peek-a-Bangs. After his Face–Heel Turn, he switches to Peek-a-Bangs exclusively.
  • Broken Pedestal: To the KND as a whole and to Nigel in particular. Being a Fake Defector does nothing to detract from this; if anything, it makes his fall from grace even worse as his resentment for Nigel consumed him.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: After he turns 13 and is forced to flee the KND to avoid being decommissioned, he quickly becomes one of these.
  • Child Hater: Hated the KND and was slowly waiting for his 13th birthday when he made his move.
  • Chick Magnet: It's implied that several girls in the KND had a crush on him. Even after defecting, he's had no issue picking up girls, hitting on a cheerleader who was very receptive to his advances in "Operation: E.L.E.C.T.I.O.N.S." and dancing with another in "Operation: P.A.R.T.Y.".
  • Darkest Hour: Beaten and imprisoned in the GKND teaser, he is visibly desperate and yelling over the alien operatives to deter Numbuh 1 from doing something drastic to earth because their friends and family will be harmed by Numbuh 1's choice.
  • Evil Is Dumb: After he turns evil, he automatically loses competence. This may be justified by his role as a mole. (Hey, that rhymes!)
  • Evil Makeover: Interesting enough, after his Face–Heel Turn, Chad suddenly develops a more pronounced jawline.
  • Face–Heel Turn: After Nigel figured out his plan, he revealed himself to be with the adults.
  • Fallen Hero: Like Cree, he was once a stellar operative turned evil by the adolescent years.
  • Fake Defector: Revealed in "Operation: T.R.E.A.T.Y.", though, as evidenced by his Villainous Breakdown, he genuinely does have a lot of negative qualities.
  • Good All Along: He's been a KND operative the whole time.
  • Good Is Not Nice: He was nice when he was Soopreme Commander. But when he showed he was a deep cover agent, his jealousy still made him act like a nasty tool.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: During Nigel's training days, Chad showed him a move that left Nigel flat on his back. In his final battle against Numbuh 1, Nigel uses the same move to beat him.
  • Informed Ability: Chad's regarded as one of the greatest modern KND agents alive, to the point that the mere idea of him defecting to the teenagers was a big deal for the cast. Yet in the same episode that had him become a villain, an amnesiac Numbuh 4 takes him out in one punch. Thus his Villain Decay sets in, where he goes from one of the most serious threats to a recurring antagonist that is competent but trips up on his own arrogance over and over. Though at the same time, as a Fake Defector, he likely had thrown the fight so the Moonbase wasn't tossed into the sun, and only pretended to grow more arrogant and incompetent.
  • Irony: As Numbuh 1 states, he was the best of the KND and he could've just bowed out gracefully while still keeping his Mole status. Indeed, if he hadn't let his pride get the better of him, he would've left a great legacy behind. He was the one who trained Numbuh 1 after all, so the kids would've definitely looked up to him after his departure. Maurice had the common sense to realize this, and allowed himself to be "decommissioned" so the KND would at least know of his reason for going bad and not have a grudge against him. Chad, however, acted too rashly (trying to destroy the KND base and then fleeing), so he'll forever have a traitor status to his name despite working behind the scenes.
    • It can be argued that his false Face–Heel Turn was so the villains would be more convinced. After all, a legendary KND suddenly wants to go evil for no reason and they aren't supposed to be suspicious?
    • Ironic Echo: Nigel's first battle with Chad (as a cadet) and his last battle with him here end the same way — but the combatants have switched positions. The first time, Nigel was put flat on his back. The second, Chad is on the receiving end.
    "My shoelaces...?"
    "Tied together. Oldest trick in the book."
    • Chad really failed to grasp whether he really wanted to be the best and what that meant He sacrificed everything, including his legacy, for the KND and lost the GKND position to Nigel, explaining why he became so bitter and angry Yet, when we actually see the GKND, they are quite horrifying and Chad is begging Nigel not to listen to them in regards to their insidious plans. The truth of the matter that despite everything Chad did to be loyal to the KND, what was required turned out to be so heinous that Chad found terrifying and now the last thing he wants.
  • It's Personal: The underlying resentment between Chad and Nigel over his betrayal led to a fight between the two in Operation: T.R.E.A.T.Y. By that point, it had become extremely personal.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Despite his hatred of Nigel, Chad points out to him that the GKND's plans are pure evil and it's against everything the KND on Earth stands for.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Episodes with Chad tend to be more serious due to the personal nature of his conflict with the KND and Numbuh 1 in particular, due to his Broken Pedestal status (though he does still have a comedic side). His last appearance on the show exemplified this the strongest. The climax of the episode was a Duel to the Death/Final Battle between him and Nigel, after a Chained Heat situation caused all their personal issues with each other to boil to the surface and both decide that one of them has to go. Nigel won the fight, and was dangerously close to pulling the trigger and finishing off Chad for good had Numbuh 5 not revealed Chad's Fake Defector status. Even then, the episode ended somberly, with Chad's disappearance and Nigel's confusion and sadness over their broken relationship.
  • Lamarck Was Right: His parents are Destructo Dad and Mega Mom, and he later becomes more of a recurring threat than they ever were.
    • The only time they are only mentioned (as his parents) is during "Operation E.N.D." but they aren't mentioned by name. They attend many super villain meetings, but their bond between Chad isn't mentioned again.
  • Morality Pet: To Nigel Uno in the GKND teaser, who dropped Sector V's names to get Nigel to stop doing whatever it was that would have negative consequences for Earth. It almost worked, up until the superiors got involved and had him taken away.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: To Numbuh 1, mainly because it had gone way beyond teenager/kid conflict and straight up into an It's Personal grudge match.
    Chad: That kid is mine.
  • Peek-a-Bangs
  • Pride:
    • His Fatal Flaw. Chad's dedication and skill as a KND operative caused other operatives to idolize him to the point that he was basically their personal celebrity. That fed into his ego, and in turn caused being "the best" to be integral to his character — so much so that when he was denied the final proof that he was still the best (a promotion to the GKND), he tried to kill the person he believed to have stolen what was rightfully his: Nigel.
    • This is what made his Fake Defector act so convincing. While Chad's devotion to the KND is second only to Nigel, he takes far more pride in his accomplishments than Nigel ever did. The idea of him not wanting future generations of KND operatives to ruin all his hard work would be perfectly in-character for him, or for at least the image he projected to the rest of the organization.
  • Put on a Bus: Disappears along with Numbuh Infinity at the end of "Operation: T.R.E.A.T.Y." and it is stated by Numbuh 1 that no one ever saw either operative again...until the trailer for Galactic: Kids Next Door.
  • Reality Ensues: Even after Nigel learns the truth about his allegiances, too much has happened for them to repair their friendship.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In "Operation: Z.E.R.O." he flees from the Adult Villain convention because all the attendees were turning into Senior Citi-zombies and releases Numbuhs 2,3,4,5 to fly off. He disappears for the rest of the movie as while we never know if he did get infected or not off-screen.
  • Sweet and Sour Grapes: A dark inversion. He gave up everything, including a prestigious reputation and heroic status, all to prove his loyalty to the KND yet became bitter when he realized it was not enough and Nigel was chosen over him. However, upon realizing what it would mean to become part of the GKND, he is so horrified by it that not only does he not want anything to do with it, he is begging Nigel not to listen to them, as the well-being of their loved ones was at stake.
  • Teens Are Monsters: He tried to blow up the Moonbase and kill Numbuh 1 multiple times. But he turns out not to be a monster.
  • Villainous Breakdown: In his last appearance, he gets so jealous of Nigel for being the best Kids Next Door operative on Earth that he tries to kill him.
    • "Operation: E.N.D" likewise had this as his plans to fix the damage backfire royally culminating with him ranting how hard it is to run an organization full of "brats". As Numbuh 1 deftly points out, he sounds just like a teenager.
  • Villainous Crossdresser: In "Operation: S.L.U.M.B.E.R.".
  • We Used to Be Friends: With Numbuh 1; Chad's betrayal was a cut so deep that by their final confrontation they were trying to kill each other in what easily one of the most personal fights on the show.
  • World's Best Warrior: Before his defection, he was considered to be the best KND operative on the planet. One of the main reasons why he hates Nigel so much is because even while being a Fake Defector, Numbuh 1 is believed to have surpassed him. Unfortunately for Chad, it's proven to be true.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He wanted to KILL Numbuh 1 in the episode "Operation T.R.E.A.T.Y."

    Cree Lincoln 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cree_lincoln.jpg
Cree Lincoln / formerly Numbuh Eleven

"My name is Cree! And you know I'm not a member of your stupid Babies Next Door anymore! I'm with the adults now."

Numbuh Five's older sister and former Kids Next Door operative, skilled, cool and determined. Her relationship with her sister is very strained, but deep down they really do love each other. She is a high ranking member of the Teen Ninjas and Father's apprentice. Voiced by Cree Summer.

  • Arch-Enemy: To Abby, though they do love each other.
  • Aloof Big Sister: For most to the series to Numbuh 5.
  • Badass in Distress: According to the G:KND site, she, like Chad, has been captured by the Global KND. What her relationship to them at this time is unknown.
  • Badass Normal: She was this as a KND member and as a teen.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her midriff can typically be seen whenever she's off the clock and not wearing her BRA.
  • Big Sister Bully: Doesn't get much more violent than blasting your sister in the face with laser guns on a regular basis.
  • Big Sister Mentor: When she was a KND operative, she taught Abby how to fight.
    Cree: (flinging Abby around with her bare hands) I know all of your moves, Abby, because I taught 'em to ya!
  • Broken Pedestal: To Numbuh 5, who admired her until her betrayal.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Numbuh 5's Abel.
  • Child Hater: Like most teen operatives, she has completely rejected her past as a KND agent and now openly hates children.
  • Cool Big Sis: When she was still in the KND. Now, while such moments are very rare, Cree has shown that she's not totally uncaring toward Abby.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's the most agile and stealthy of the teens and can kick butt a lot harder than most villains.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Despite being a violent child-hating Teen Ninja, she still cares about her parents. She and Abby have an unspoken agreement that they pretend to be loving sisters at home for their parents' sake and save their fighting for outside.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She won't admit it, but she still cares about Abby and wants her to join the teenagers.
  • Face–Heel Turn: She was once a KND operative that turned bad after her 13th birthday and was never decommissioned.
  • Fallen Hero: Once she turned 13, she started an alliance with the adults.
  • Femme Fatale: She may look cute, but she tried to destroy her sibling and the KND for good many times.
  • Instant Armor: Don't let the joke fool you; her bra is actually the suitcase for her armor.
  • Late to the Party: Throughout most of Season Two, she's seen trying to get the KND moonbase, claiming "It's all part of the plan". By the time she does however, Chad (who had turned traitor) had already tried and failed in his bid to destroy it. Apparently, Chad enacted his plan to beat her to the punch and prevent a complete surprise attack.
  • Loves My Alter Ego: In "Operation: K.I.S.S.", she instantly falls in love with Hoagie after he accidentally turns himself into a tall, thin, handsome teenage boy. She's completely floored when "Hank" reverts to his normal self in front of her.
    Cree: Somebody's turned you into that fat slob Hoagie Gilligan!
    Numbuh 5: (proudly) Nah, fool! Hank is Hoagie!
    Cree: Wh—but if Hank is Hoagie, but we...then that means that I...with... (starts gagging and spitting)
  • Nice Hat: As a young KND operative, she wore a red baseball cap that she eventually passed down to her younger sister Abby.
  • The Paragon Always Rebels: She was once a top-ranking KND operative and a Cool Big Sis to Abby, but after her 13th birthday, she made a Face–Heel Turn and became a Teen Ninja.
  • Pink Is Feminine: She usually wears a pink T-shirt when "off-duty".
  • Ship Tease: With Maurice.
  • Significant Double Casting: She and her sister Abby are both voiced by Cree Summer.
  • Teens Are Monsters: She tried to drown all the younger kids in their beds once (though that episode ended on a Mind Screw and implied to be a dream of Numbuh 2), and made sure all kids had chicken pox so they don't bother other teens.
  • The Unfought: She's one of the antagonists in Operation: V.I.D.E.O.G.A.M.E., but, like Father, she doesn't get her own boss battle.
  • We Used to Be Friends: She and Abby had a much better sister relationship when Cree was a member of the KND.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Does it and has it happen to her. Most of her appearances have her set up to finally better her relationship with Abby but something always happens that convinces her it was a trick, leading her to lash out violently and double down on her hatred of kids.

    Mr. Boss 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mr__Boss.jpg
Mr. Boss

"So long, shrimp! I hope your friend likes Pluto!"

CEO of a big company and additionally the "leader" of the villains, he tends to lead them on cooperative missions. He hates all children... except his own. Voiced by Jeff Bennett.

  • Arch-Enemy: To Sector V as a whole, if only because of the frequency of his major appearances and his high standing in the villain hierarchy. Though Mr. Boss is one of the major villains, his appearances have the least emotional impact out of all of the villains on this page, plus those of the Delightful Children from Down the Lane.
  • Bad Boss: Tried to send all of the daughters of his employees to Pluto just so he can make them work even more. He had the same thing for their sons in mind, but planned it for next week. He seems to be an alright boss toward the other villains though (minus the Toiletnator), even throwing them barbecues and diner parties.
  • Big Bad: Serves as the leader of the villainous forces if Father is not around. Sometimes even if Father is around he will take charge such as in "Operation: M.O.V.I.E.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: The self-styled leader of the KND Rogues Gallery. He even calls himself "a major villain."
  • Catchphrase: "Aww geez, it's the Toiletnator!"
  • Child Hater: He has one exception, his own children... One of them being Numbuh 86.
  • Cigar Chomper: He is always smoking a cigar. Strangely enough, it is always held in his mustache instead of his mouth.
  • Continuity Cavalcade: Due to his nature as a leader of villains, and due to the show's nature of strong continuity, he is most commonly seen with a good portion of the adult villains seen up to that point.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: One who thinks that extended work hours is a good enough reason for kidnapping.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": "Operation: D.A.D.D.Y." reveals his last name to be Fulbright, so his villain name only shows his position.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: His children, one of whom is actually the ill-tempered Numbuh 86. It's just EVERYONE ELSE'S children he hates.
  • Facepalm: Whenever he sees the Toiletnator, he facepalms.
  • Fat Bastard: He's a villain and he happens to be fat.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: His cigar is not just for show; it's also a trigger for many of his devices.
  • Harmless Villain: Due to lacking his own superpowers or gadgets, he usually relies on other adult villains to carry out dirty work on combating the KND, but this gets averted in Operation: D.A.D.D.Y. when he brings out an all-powerful chair that can roll on wheels and fire rockets like a tank does (only a lot faster) and nearly steamrolls the KND operatives sent to subdue him.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: The reason why Mr. Boss's plans always get screwed over by the Toiletnator? Because he refuses to let the Toiletnator participate in his plans, thinking that he'll screw up, so the Toiletnator "takes things on his own level".
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He's Numbuh 86's father. She was apparently completely unaware that her father was also one of her archenemies.
  • Mean Boss: He's this to his own employees, as Numbuh 4's dad can attest.
  • Moral Myopia: He hates kids unless they happen to be his.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • He does love his own children.
    • He takes every opportunity to berate the Toiletnator, but he begrudgingly thanks him for unclogging the toilet he's using in "Operation: C.A.N.Y.O.N." and allows him to hold off the Kids Next Door in "Operation: M.I.S.S.I.O.N."
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: After the reveal that Fanny is his daughter, he says he'll fix pancakes for his children. He offers Numbuh 1 and his son's (Mr. Boss's son) sector for pancakes in a nice tone, but then tells them to go to a diner. He even turns off the lights on him.

    Grandfather 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/grandfather_5.jpg
Grandfather

Father and Monty Uno/Numbuh Zero's father and an Evil Overlord who once ruled the entire planet. He's by far the most dangerous enemy the KND have ever faced and makes Father look like a saint compared to him. Acted as the Big Bad in The Movie. Voiced by Neil Ross.

  • Abusive Parent: He's why Father is the way he is.
  • Archnemesis Dad: To Numbuh 0/Monty Uno.
  • Badass Boast:
    Monty, Monty, Monty. Did you honestly believe that a mere 39 gazillion tons of red hot metal and duct tape would crush me?
  • Bald of Evil: He's bald at the top which further emphasizes his Horned Hairdo and it's a trait he shares with his son and Grandson.
  • Big Bad: Of The Movie.
  • Brought Down to Normal: After being depowered again at the end of the movie, he returns to being a harmless old man.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: The first thing he says after being reawakened is to thank Father for "reawakening the pure evil" laying dormant within him.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: It didn't take him a whole lot of effort to reconquer the world, though it's mostly because his minions are effectively invincible.
  • The Dark Times: His previous reign. After seeing that, it's little surprise the KND are so fearful of adults.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: Even more than Father.
  • Dirty Coward: Seems to be this when Father went berserk on him, only regaining dominance when he backs out afterwards.
  • The Dreaded: He makes Father look like a joke in comparison, so naturally everyone is terrified of him. Father included.
  • Dystopia Justifies the Means: His intent is nothing less than a Crapsack World where kids, and the second time, anyone who had ever been a kid, toils endlessly to create tapioca pudding for his consumption. The second time, he plans to turn everyone in the world (KND included) into senior citizombies that are his obedient slaves.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Goes from a harmless old man who can barely lift his back... to an all powerful demon who succeeded in ruling the world.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He appears to actually care about his first son, Monty, as he tried to communicate with him in the middle of the moment, and actually accepted his path of good, even if he was disappointed that he wasn't on his side, and nicely asked him if he could be just "a little more evil". It is hinted that he may care for his other son, Father as well, but not as much, as he's got no problem with beating him up for negotiating with him.
  • Eviler Than Thou: To literally every villain in the Rogues Gallery once they find out his plan to turn everyone that's ever been a kid into Senior Citizombies includes them. Father outright states that Grandfather is eviler than him before reviving him, calling him "The World's Most Ultimate Evil".
  • Evil Old Folks: As a villain whose old age is one of his prominent characteristics, Grandfather is this.
  • Evil Overlord: Once ruled the world with an iron fist before Numbuh Zero betrayed and defeated him.
  • Expy: He seems to be partially based on Aku from Samurai Jack — a black, shadowy monster who stands a couple stories tall in his natural state, can manipulate fire, and his very awakening spells doom for the whole world.
    • He also can be considered an expy of Darkseid, Being a god-like Evil Overlord with an obsessive goal of bending everyone to his will, yet favors his braver, more rebellious son (Monty) over his meeker, yet more loyal his ideals son (Benedict).
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's usually very polite and sophisticated, even to the heroes and his minions, and seems to slightly care about his two sons; however, he's still utterly evil and intends to conquer the world for his own benefit alone.
  • Fisher King: When he rules the world, he uses his Reality Warper abilities to convert it into an old-style Crapsack World complete with child labor and Industrial Era-style factories making tapioca pudding for him to eat.
  • Good Hurts Evil: The reason he fears the Book of KND is because it represents the one thing that can destroy him - Hope.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: While he only appears in The Movie, the current incarnation of the KND was originally founded for the purpose of ending his evil rule. On top of that, Father ended up the way he is because of Grandfather being such an Abusive Parent to him. Then it turns out that GKND has bigger plans than him.
  • Hero Killer: He almost completely converts the KND into senior citizombies.
  • Hope Crusher: Upon his return to power, he refuses to accept victory until he's destroyed the Book of KND and the hope it inspires.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Despite exhibiting the characteristics of a comedic super villain, Grandfather is arguably the darkest villain as a whole, due to how, unlike any other villain, is actually seen performing child slavery, and turning the world's population into senior citizombies.
  • Large Ham: Is an even bigger ham than his son.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Literally; his memory was erased by Numbuh Zero using some kind of laser, reducing him to a harmless old man until he's "recommissioned" by Father. This is pretty much the only way to defeat him, as he's Nigh Invulnerable to any physical attack.
  • Meaningful Name: As his name implies, he has aging-based powers. He's also superior to his son Father, thus a 'grander' version of Father. He also literally is Number One's Grandfather.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: His reaction to getting crushed under the entire Kids Next Door Moonbase is to dust himself off and ask if they really thought that would work.
  • No Ontological Inertia: His defeat restores the world to normal. Justified since his Reality Warper powers were what changed it originally, and his defeat depowered him.
  • The Nose Knows: Tracks the Book of KND by scent at one point.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: His de-powered appearance is that of a harmless, senile old man, who probably lives in a retirement home. The villains are not impressed by what they see... until his inner darkness is awoken.
  • Oh, Crap!: Seeing the KND Moon Base barreling down right on top of him. True, it didn't do anything to hurt him, but A for catching him off guard.
    • He has another one when he finally pushes Father too far. Epically this is the only point in which he truly looks fearful.
  • Parental Favoritism: He prefers Monty Uno over Father (Benedict) as he was willing to stand up to him, even though he betrayed him and brought him down to normal.. Doesn't stop him from trying to zombify him.
  • Pet the Dog: Though Grandfather tells Father to get out of his sight after reawakening him, he decides to leave him be instead of turning him and the Delightful Children From Down The Lane into senior citizombies.
    • He tries to communicate with his son, Monty. Even if he was disappointed at Monty not being evil, Grandfather tried to ask him nicely.
    • Played for laughs when he apologizes to a janitor for not letting him do his job...right before transforming him into a senior citizombie.
  • Physical God: He's the single strongest villain in the entire series and is capable of surviving a direct hit from a Colony Drop without even a scratch. He can also 'age' the entire world at will.
  • Playing with Fire: Father gets it from him.
  • Rapid Aging: His most dangerous ability is to age everything he touches, though not only does he age them rapidly, he turns them into his 'Senior Citizombie' minions. And all the individuals he ages gain the ability to do it to others as well.
  • Reality Warper: He's capable of changing the world as he sees fit, normally to a more "old time" look.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: His abilities actually have shades of this. When his memories are wiped, he returns to being a harmless grandfather. Numbuh Zero even happily greets his father now that he's back to non-evil mode.
  • Super Toughness: Took a Colony Drop from the Moon Base, a several million ton hit at minimum, and chides the heroes for thinking that it would so much as scratch him.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He really likes tapioca pudding, so much so that enslaving everyone so they'd mass-produce it was one of the reasons he wanted to rule the earth.
  • Transformation Sequence: Unlike Father, who just grows his "shadow suit" back, Grandfather sucks in the shadows from everything in the room to form his after being reawakened in a much more elaborate fashion.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Not even reviving him wins his son Father any affection; he flat-out tells him to leave after being revived. This is somewhat justified, as Father only reawakened him simply because he grew tired of losing to the KND.
  • The Virus: What his Rapid Aging works as, since it can spread through physical contact.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: He literally makes the environment around him more vile. He's also the single most vile villain in the show, and despite his comedic moments his actual plan and threat are treated with more seriousness than every other villain combined. The other villains are doing things like giving kids colds, cleaning their teeth, or banning sugary drinks, Grandfather is turning the world into a child-labor fueled dystopia and causing a Zombie Apocalypse.
  • Walking Wasteland: His Rapid Aging affects everything in his path. The same applies to his Senior Citizombies, though they need to make physical contact in order to do so.
  • World's Strongest Man: Is the most powerful being in the entire series bar none, and Father outright says he's 'the World's most ultimate evil'. Father is implied to potentially be stronger, but due to being weak willed despite his bluster can never actually live up to that potential, leaving Grandfather the undisputed strongest.
  • You Got Spunk: Why he prefers one of his sons, Numbuh Zero, over his other son, Father. Numbuh Zero successfully managed to defeat Grandfather when the latter was at the peak of his power, which Grandfather actually respects him for. Father, on the other hand, is evil like Grandfather, but too weak-willed and spineless to stand up to him.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: "Citizombie Apocalypse".

The Galactic Kids Next Door

    General 
The GKND is an intergalactic organization of all children supposedly fighting a universal war against evil (teen-to-adult) tyranny. But in reality, they are the evil tyrants and their true intentions are ridding the universe of teenhood and adulthood.
  • Absolute Xenophobe: The GKND hate all adults (teenagers included) in the universe and they want to wipe them all out from existence.
  • Arc Villain: They are going to be the ultimate threat in the upcoming sequel series.
  • Badass Army: They're a large organization capable of fighting very well.
  • Big Bad: They're set up as being the most important threat the Kids Next Door on Earth will face, their villainy being greater than Father's and even Grandfather's.
  • Evil All Along: They were initially introduced as a larger-scale equivalent to the Kids Next Door based on Earth. The animatics viewable on the Rainbow Monkeys website when the correct password is typed reveal that they're actually out to wipe out all adults and adolescents even if they have to exterminate entire races to do so.
  • Eviler Than Thou: They are even worse than Grandfather.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: They are apparently this to entire franchise, as their plans are even greater than other villains in the show, including Grandfather.
  • Hypocrite: They go on about adult tyranny, consider adulthood to be a disease and want to make the universe a better place for children, but their acts against adults and teenagers are both heinous and beyond despicable as it's genocide and the worse kind of evil. As Chad points out to Nigel that the GKND's plans are pure evil and they are the most tyrannical organisation in the universe, plus they are even more vile than Earth's most evilest adult; Grandfather.
  • Scary Dogmatic Aliens: They despise adults and teenagers to the point that they believe it justifiable to commit interplanetary genocide.
