The heroes, villains, and treasure guardians that appear in the LEGO Adventurers theme.

The Heroes

Johnny Thunder

Pippin Reed (formerly Gail Storm)

Dr. Charles Kilroy (formerly Dr. Charles Lightning)

  • Absent-Minded Professor: He knows everything about history, archaeology, and paleontology... but tends to be forgetful about what's going on right now.
  • Advertisement:
  • Dub Name Change: Known as Charles Lightning in America, Dr. Kilroy in the United Kingdom, Professor Articus (in the Egypt subtheme) or Professor Titus (in the Dino Island subtheme) in Germany, and Professor Påläst in Sweden.
  • Everyone Is Related: Not only is he Johnny Thunder's uncle, as confirmed by LEGO Mania, but he is also the brother of Dr. Cyber, as confirmed by LEGO World Club Magazine. According to Word of God, Dr. Cyber is Tim Timebuster's uncle, which would make Dr. Kilroy, Johnny Thunder, Josh Thunder, Dr. Cyber, and Tim Timebuster one big happy family.
  • Expy: The Henry Jones Snr to Johnny's Indy.
  • Gentleman and a Scholar
  • The Mentor: To his nephew, Johnny.
  • Nerd Glasses
  • Nice Hat: Is never without his pith helmet.
  • Quintessential British Gentleman

Harry Cane


  • Ace Pilot: Not as much as Harry, but he does act as the group's pilot in some of the sets.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Never had a pet dog or cat, so he is very protective of orphaned baby dinosaurs.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: For Harry Cane during the Dino Island subtheme. This was made especially clear in LEGO Soccer Mania, in which Mike was erroneously named "Harry Cane" (while the real Harry Cane went by his European name, "Billy Speed").
  • Tagalong Kid: While his exact age is unknown, he appears much younger than Johnny, Pippin, or Kilroy.


Sherpa Sangye Dorje

Jing Lee

The Villains

Lord Sam Sinister (formerly Mr. Hates, Baron von Barron)

  • Adaptational Name Change: A Bricks and Pieces advertisement for an Adventurers cartoon referred to him as "Evil Eye", even though he was more commonly known as Mr. Hates in the United Kingdom.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Lord Sinister and Baron von Barron, anyone?
  • Arch-Enemy: Has only failed to appear to oppose the Adventurers once.
  • Beard of Evil: He grows a goatee for the Orient Expedition subtheme.
  • Continuity Snarl: His name, his appearance, his title, such little backstory as he has...
  • Dastardly Whiplash: He is clearly modeled after archetypal villains of the early twentieth century. He even looks a little like Snidely Whiplash himself, especially when he wears a top hat in the Orient Expedition subtheme.
  • Dub Name Change: Prior to the Dino Island line, he was known as Baron von Barron in America, Mr. Hates in Europe, and General Galning in Sweden. During the Dino Island line, he was known as Alex Gluipstra in the Netherlands. Other sources also called him Evil Eye and Ulrich Unhold.
  • Evil Wears Black: As Lord Sam Sinister during the Orient Expedition subtheme.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a scar down the side of his cheek.
  • High-Class Glass: Wears a monocle over his right eye.
  • Hook Hand: According to his backstory, he lost his left hand while stealing a diamond in India, and has replaced it with a hook.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: Especially in the Orient Expedition, where he is sharply dressed in addition to wearing a monocle.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His various names include Sam Sinister, Mr. Hates, and Evil Eye.
  • Nice Hat: Either a pith helmet or a top hat.
  • Siblings in Crime: With Alexia.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His surname was sometimes spelled "Sanister" in the Dino Island line.
  • The Von Trope Family: He was originally known as Baron von Barron in America.

Slyboots (formerly Sam Sinister)

  • Adaptational Name Change: A Bricks and Pieces advertisement for an Adventurers cartoon referred to him as "Snake Boots", even though he was more commonly known as Sly Boots in the United Kingdom.
  • Beard of Evil: A goatee, no less.
  • The Brute: In the German and Swedish versions of the story, Slyboots was a former prizefighter.
  • Dastardly Whiplash: He is clearly modeled after archetypal villains of the early twentieth century. He even looks a little like Snidely Whiplash himself.
  • Dub Name Change: Known as Sam Sinister in America, Sly Boots in Europe, and Knock-out Berra in Sweden.
  • Evil Wears Black: Wears a black suit and top hat.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears glasses and is a villain, especially in the American storyline where he is the mastermind behind the plan to steal the pharaoh's ruby.
  • Genius Bruiser: If both the American and German depictions of Slyboots are canon, then he is both a cunning mastermind and a brute.
  • Nice Hat: A top hat.
  • Obliviously Evil: His Swedish bio states that he has forgotten how to tell right from wrong, leading him to commit evil acts. Given that he is a former champion boxer, this implies that he may have had a traumatic brain injury.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: He wears a black suit over a red shirt.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Sometimes, his European name was written as one word (Slyboots) or two words (Sly Boots). One Kabaya set even makes this trope literal by dropping the last letter and calling him Sly Boot.

Señor Palomar

Rudo Villano

  • Carpet of Virility: His torso shows him with a few buttons undone on his shirt showing he's got some chest hair under there.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Seems to be hinted to have one according to a US Lego Mania Magazine which says he rarely smiles due to the scar under his eye, unlike Baron Von Baron who doesn't seemed that bothered by his facial scar. Rudo also appears to be very sensitive about it as the magazine says that if anyone says a word about his scar he will throw them to the crocodiles!
  • Dub Name Change: Known as Max Villano in European countries.
  • Evil Wears Black: Rudo Villano wears a hat that is identical to Johnny Thunder's hat, except his hat is black.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a rather nasty one right under his eye.

Alexia Sinister

Mr. Cunningham

Maharajah Lallu

Ngan Pa

Emperor Chang Wu


Pharaoh Hotep III



  • Spell My Name with an "S": A literal case; his name is alternatively written as either Gabarro or Gabarros, with the latter spelling first being used in Standing Small. However, most sources from 1999 refer to him as Gabarro without the "s".


How well does it match the trope?
