The Main Heroes

    Leo San Juan 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leo_adventuring.png
The Hero of more adventures than you can count
Voiced by: Johnny Rose (English), Benny Emmannuel (Latin American Spanish)
Full name: Leonardo "Leo" San Juan

A young man from a small town in 1800's Mexico. Since a young age he has been able to see ghosts and with their help goes on adventures to try and stop monsters...or at least he did when he was younger. Now that he's a teenager, he just wants to be normal, get his weird "leg-ball" game to be popular, and maybe get the new girl Marcella to notice him, but life ain't so easy for young Leo....


  • 10-Minute Retirement: After sealing the Big Bad Quetzalcoatl away, Leo's finally earned the respect of his hometown, gotten a girlfriend who accepts him for who he is, and everything's gone back to normal. Then the Big Bad steals away everyone and everything in Leo's hometown as revenge, with Leo and friends barely escaping.
  • Adaptational Intelligence: Sort of. Leo was the Smart Guy of the Las Leyendas films as well (a role he shared with Alebrije), but although he was incredibly enthusiastic about science and reading, his intelligence was mostly a good sense of logic and experience. In Legend Quest, Leo is extremely intelligent and has the makings of a young scientist. This could be mostly explained to him simply growing up, however, especially given his aforementioned love of science at the young age of 9.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: To a minor extent, but it's there. In the original movies, Leo bordered on All-Loving Hero who was exceeding kind, patient and gentle, almost to a fault. Every time he did lose his patience or snap, it was pretty much justified, or at least understandable under the circumstances. Leo in Legend Quest is still a genuinely good-natured Nice Guy who will always do the right thing in the end, but his patience is a lot shorter and he gets angrier a lot more often.
  • Adaptational Personality Change: In a sense. By the later Las Leyendas films, especially La Leyenda del Chupacabras, Leo grew into a more mature, no-nonsense and morose character. He's a little more jovial, goofier, socially-awkward and deadpan in Legend Quest. Still, most of his personality traits remain, if slightly tweaked. He's still selfless, forgiving, kind-hearted, intelligent, adventurous and still plays the straight man to his friends quirks.
  • Adorkable: Not as much as when he was a kid, but teenage Leo has his moments. There's just something very endearing about him geeking out over seeing Mount Vesuvius in person.
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: A downplayed example, but Leo has had his fair share of cool nicknames over his many adventures. Namely, "The One", "The Socrates of Puebla" and "The Lion".
  • Blessed with Suck: Leo's opinion of his power to see and converse with spirits. Understandable, considering its long-term results on his public image.
    • His status as The Chosen One in the prophecy is revealed to be this in Season 1's finale.
  • Blown Across the Room: Leo suffers this in Epidsode 9. Courtesy of Marcella (pretending to betray Team Legend) using a magic blast to knock him into Alebrije, which causes both of them to fall into a pit.
  • Badass Normal: He's tasked with protecting the world from supernatural evils, yet his only real power is seeing and conversing with spirits. He compensates for this by being a Guile Hero.
  • Book Dumb: He's not stupid, but he is still an 19th century peasant who never left his village before, and so is ignorant of a lot of things we would consider obvious.
  • Butt-Monkey: He lacks the intangibility of his ghostly companions, the hardiness of Alebrije, and Marcella's magic powers so his suffering is much more frequent and accute.
  • Cheerful Child: Mostly during La Leyenda de la Nahuala, and mostly in the presence of those he trusted. In those situations, Leo was very cheerful, kind, friendly and sweet. Leo's constant, increasingly darker adventures dimmed this considerably.
  • The Chosen One: Only the Lion can defeat the Snake. Leo means lion as you may know. Later episodes hint that he might be The Chosen One for other prophecies as well.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: In Episode 9, Leo falls under the influence of the steam emanating from the spell of Baba Yaga's coven and his behavior is a disturbing emulation of Alcohol-Induced Idiocy.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: Constantly.
  • Foil: The climax reveals he is this to Teodora. Where he tried to refuse the call, Teodora jumped at it even giving up being with her family in order to save the world.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Subverted. Leo likes animals, but animals do not like Leo.
  • Generation Xerox: In the Las Leyendas film series, Leo's paternal Abuela (then named Toñita San Juan) managed to fend off La Nahuala, saving the souls of Xóchitl and Teodora in the process. Leo does much the same in La Leyenda de la Nahuala, freeing the two girls from the Manor as a whole.
    • Possibly with his father as well, though not much is known about his father since he's been dead ever since Leo was a young kid. What we do know about his father is that he was very brave, courageous and kind. Toñita described him to be very similar to a then 9-year old Leo.
  • Guile Hero: Since Leo doesn't have any powers (aside from seeing and conversing with spirits), he has to rely on his wits to defeat supernatural threats.
    • He captured Baba Yaga, one of the world's most powerful witches, merely by sneaking into her house and building a fully-functional witch-trap around her while she was busy scrying.
    • He manages to trick Mister Madera, a frighteningly competent sentient puppet who had already fed on the souls of his entire team and turned them into puppets, into being locked into his airship's liferaft just long enough to be sent to be incinerated by a nearby active volcano.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Leo's desire to save his village and family from Quetzacoatl's grasp almost gets the better of him in Episode 5, as he argues with Teodora over whether or not they should ignore the Vodnik's soul-stealing and instead focus on Baba Yaga and defeating Quetzacoatl as fast as they can, even if that means abandoning Alebrije, who had his soul taken from him by the Vodnik while acquiring the last ingredient for the Veritas potion. He backs off on this attitude, however, after hearing from the Vodnik how much he had sacrificed in pursuit of his twisted goal.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: In his steam-induced stupor in Episode 9, Leo starts to sing a song about eating your heart out in his sorrow over Marcella (his crush) seemingly betraying him. And he sings it badly, requiring Teodora to slap him in the face.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Leo desperately wants to be this, but can't as talking to ghosts on a regular basis doesn't exactly paint a stable mental picture to people who don't believe in them.
  • Kid Hero All Grown-Up: His pre-teen years were filled with heroics against supernatural evils and being joined in those heroics by ghosts and a mythical shape-shifter. As a teen, he wants out of the hero business because everyone thinks he's crazy.
  • Raised by Grandparents: Leo is being raised by his abuela Rosa.
  • Refused the Call: A belated version of this trope as Leo, now a Kid Hero All Grown-Up, is still needed to save the world, but he rejects it as wants a chance to live a normal life and has people does not think he's nuts. Unfortunately, the call knows where he lives.
  • Science Hero: Leo isn't so much a science hero yet, but the show implies he'll eventually become one, with Thomas Decatur saying he'll make a fine scientist one day (which Leo was elated at). Leo has also been shown to have a great love for science and logical mindset.
  • The Smart Guy: Leo's intelligence is by far his greatest asset. Despite his young age, Leo has shown considerable skill in engineering and has some degree of knowledge regarding the world outside of Puebla, given his geeking out over Mount Vesuvius. It's even foreshadowed Leo would grow up to become a scientist of sorts.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Leo was pretty grumpy and short-tempered at the start of the series. After his adventure started and he began to travel the world, his kind and selfless nature started to shine through more and more.
  • War Is Hell: In the Las Leyendas timeline, Leo became a war veteran in either his Preteen or early Teen years. Needless to say, his experiences in the war were not pleasant. Leo never actually saw proper combat in the war, but he did witness several soldiers on both sides, who he befriended, die horribly and was nearly executed by firing squad, not to mention the attempted murders against his and his brothers life. War sucks. Leo being a war vet seems to have been retconned out of his personal history during Legend Quest.
  • Write Back to the Future: The final scene of Season 1 reveals that Leo had done this. In a shout-out to Back to the Future, Leo wrote a letter to be delivered to Teodora 100 years later.
  • You Can See That, Right?: Leo's reaction when he first sees the Sugar Skulls in Episode 10.

    Teodora Villaviciencio 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/teodora_5.png
Duchess of "You'll See Now
Voiced by: Annemarie Blanco (English), Mayté Cordeiro (Latin American Spanish), Yu Shimamura (Japanese)
Full name: Teodora Vicenta de la Purísima Concepción de la Inmaculada Trinidad Villavicencio

A ghost girl who is a constant companion for Leo. While she may seem unconcerned with the goings-on of her surroundings, make no mistake - she cares deeply for her friends and will give anyone a bad day if they hurt them. Weirdly, despite being in the 1800's, she dresses like a 21st-century girl and even owns a smartphone....


  • Adaptational Heroism: In the Las Leyendas series, Teodora would do the right thing...eventually. She usually had to be bribed or coaxed into doing it by Leo first. In Legend Quest, Teodora is a downright heroic individual, to the point where she gave up her life with her loving parents in order to save the world with Leo.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Aside from her aforementioned heroism, Teodora's entire personality was pretty much reworked from the ground up. In the Las Leyendas movies, Teodora was an overly emotional, spoiled rotten Royal Brat Faux Action Girl who blurted out pop-culture references who annoyed most of her friends and rarely did anything to actually help. Sure, she's retained some of her traits, but they're much less exaggerated than before and she's a lot more willing to fight her way out of situations, becoming among the most aggressive members of the team.
  • And I Must Scream: From what Marcella says, before she learned how to use Astral Projection, Teodora was aware of everything going on around her while in her coma, but unable to wake up or communicate with anyone.
  • Astral Projection: Is capable of doing this thanks to Catrina's teachings.
  • Chekhov's Gun:
    • Teo's smartphone. It has an internet connection, meaning she has the freaking internet in the 19th century. As a modern teenager, she's somewhat more worldly and educated than everyone except maybe Alebrije. As such she's the only one who recognized a Japanese town and the only one with even the slightest idea of how to act appropriately.
    • Her teal glow despite every other ghost glowing white. After its already shown she is actually an Astral Projection, Leo later gets forcibly removed from his body and he too has the same glow in spirit form confirming that the teal color is an indicator that the spirit's body is still alive.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Teodora towards Leo, especially after he's smitten with Marcella. Teodora treats it like Leo's dumping her for Marcella. She drops it a bit after learning about Marcella's dark and troubled past, but still gets jealous when she sees Leo and Marcella together.
  • CPR: Clean, Pretty, Reliable: In order to save Marcella after she was magically sacrificed, Teodora possesses the girl's body and makes Marcella perform CPR on herself in an attempt to bring her back to life. She succeeds and ends up mind-melding with Marcella as she begins to regain consciousness.
  • Cute Ghost Girl: Subverted. Teodora is an astral projection of her soul. And she looks pretty good for someone who was hit by a bus.
  • Dangerously Short Skirt: Teodora's dress only reaches down to her upper thighs and she does her fair share of floating and flying.
  • Dark Secret: Teodora is still alive in the 21st century, albeit in a coma, and her 'ghost' form is actually her astrally projected soul.
  • Disney Death: First, Teodora's astral form dies via Heroic Sacrifice in Episode 12, then in Episode 13 her body dies. Fortunately, it only sticks for a few seconds before New Quetzalcoatl appears and fully restores Teodora's life.
  • Dude Magnet: Episode 4 shows a trio of handsome, Pompeiian Ghost Boys vying for Teodora's attention. Teodora, in a romantic moment, nicknames them "Adorables".
  • Fourth Wall Psych: Teodora angrily turns to the screen and says "We're trying to have a private moment here!" when she awakens from her coma and embraces her mother. She's really talking to a man who just came in with a letter.
  • Gallows Humor: She prefers dealing with her grief through humor.
  • Humble Hero: Despite being chewed out by Leo for not doing anything while the ship was falling at the start of episode 4, only to pretty much singlehandedly save the ship once she sees the problem, Teodora doesn't call any attention to her actions in doing so.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Teodora is a proud and snarky specter, but she cares deeply for her friends.
  • Jumped at the Call: When offered the chance by Catrina to join Leo and save the world, Teodora doesn't even hesitate.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: She behaves and talks like a typical "Fresa" (the mexican equivalent of the Valley Girl), but essentialy she deeply cares by her friends and allies.
  • Meaningful Name: Teodora/Theodora are feminine forms of Theodore, "Gift of God." Likewise, Teodora (and the information on her phone) save the team on multiple occasions. Plus, her family loves her dearly, and she was literally recruited by a benevolent goddess.
  • Mental Time Travel: How Teodora's astral projection wound up in the late 19th century.
  • Morality Chain: Leo is sometimes too willing to complete his quest of saving the world from Quetzalcoatl that he might end up sacrificing his comrades to accomplish that goal. Teodora, however, is not going to let Leo abandon his friends and implores him to find another way.
  • No-Sell: Her nature as an Astral Projection gives her a few advantages over normal ghosts... like being immune to Medusa's Deadly Gaze.
  • Older Sidekick: In the Las Leyendas films, Teodora was originally this when Leo was a Kid Hero, but he has since caught up to her in terms of age due to how he can still get older with time. It is currently unknown if this is also the case in Legend Quest... Especially with Teodora's altered backstory.
  • Overly Long Name: Her full name is Teodora Vicenta de la Purísima Concepción de la Inmaculada Trinidad Villavicencio. Funnily enough, her giant name was actually shortened. In Las Leyendas, her complete name was Teodora Vicenta de la Purisima Concepcion de la lnmaculada Trinidad Villavicencio, Duchess of "You'll See Now", Marquise of "Whew" from La Condesa vicinity. Of course, Leo just called her "Teodora, all of that".
  • Phoneaholic Teenager: Teodora, but her smartphone gets the gang out of some sticky situations. This trope is also what led to her coma - she was paying more attention to her smartphone than the bus barreling towards her.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Zig-Zagged Big Time! Teodora was truly a ghost in the Las Leyendas films. Legend Quest's version of her starts out Season 1 as an Astral Projection of a girl in a coma, and in the end, she dies and is restored to life.
  • Taking the Bullet: Episode 12 begins with Baba Yaga trying to kill Leo via magical sacrifice in order to power a spell. Marcella jumps in front of him, then Teodora phases through both of them and and ends up taking the hit.
  • Thousand-Yard Stare: Teodora gets a couple of these in Episode 11 when her physical body's condition suddenly worsens.
  • Tsundere: She doesn't like openly showing her softer side but she is one of the more caring characters when you get to know her.
  • Walking Spoiler: Take a good long look at the main page and her character tropes.

    Don Andrés 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/don_andres_ep_1_first_shot_8.png
The ghost of a Conquistador from years past... or so he says
Voiced by: Oscar Cheda (English), Andrés Couturier (Latin American Spanish), Mitsuru Ogata (Japanese)
Full name: Don Andrés Artasánchez

A cowardly ghost who acts as the team scholar. He may be a coward but don't think he won't help his friends when they need it.


  • Badass Boast: Delivers one right before distracting the Mart in the dream-world:
    You know what's great about being a charlatan? In my mind, I can be whatever I want. And now, my friend, you are inside my mind. And I choose to be awesome!
  • But I Read a Book About It: Occurs in "Jersey Devil". With no one in town willing to defend Leo and the group in court, Don Andrés volunteers to defend them, claiming to have been a licensed barrister, though he clarifies to Leo that he just read a book about it on a voyage across the ocean.
  • Cowardly Lion: Is scared stiff when facing the legends, and is usually the first to suggest retreat. However, he still manages to overcome his fears and fight alongside his friends.
  • Dirty Coward: In life, Don Andrés scammed towns into giving him money in exchange for his services in protecting them from non-existent supernatural threats and when he finally met a real monster in the form of Nicht Mart, He turned tail and ran away. He at least regrets his decisions and grows into a Lovable Coward as a ghost.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Don Andrés was pretty much this in life. He scammed towns into giving him money for his services in protecting them from non-existent supernatural threats. Then when he met an actual monster, he turned tail and ran away.
  • Miles Gloriosus: Whilst alive, Don Andrés made a living as a scam-artist, posing as a conquistador experienced in 'protecting' villages from non-existent legends for a fee. The one time he actually faced a real legend, namely the Nicht Mart, he turned tail and ran. Spending time as a ghost has reformed him into a Cowardly Lion.
  • My Greatest Failure: Abandoning the people of Steinau to the Mart. Thankfully, his ghostly nature and friendship with Leo enable him to atone for his failure. Cementing his change into a better person, he doesn't even show himself to take credit for his part in the town's salvation.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Episode 6 sees Don posing as Thor, God of Thunder and Lightning. He's wearing a glaringly obvious wig, with his potbelly sticking out, and holding an ordinary hammer. And surprisingly, he manages to fool a pack of trolls.
  • What You Are in the Dark: When trapped in his own dream-world by the Mart, who has also captured a tag-along Leo, Andrés doesn't run - he stands his ground and fights without fear or hesitation.

    Alebrije 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alebrije.png
This creature belongs to the Alebrije species, which effectively serves as his namesake
Voiced by: Paul Tei (English), Ricardo O'Farrill (Latin American Spanish)
Full name: Unknown/Unpronounceable

A mythical creature that looks different to everyone who sees him. He may be a bit dimwitted but he makes up for it by having a big heart and easily understanding the feelings of his friends.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: It's not like Alebrije wasn't a nice guy in the movies, he was actually a quite good hearted guy, but he enjoyed teasing his friends and could get rather spiteful at times. In Legend Quest, Alebrije is The Heart of the team. Though to be fair, Alebrije slowly turned into The Heart in Las Leyendas as the series went on, especially by La Leyenda del Chupacabras, and often played the role of the Straight Man along with Leo.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Could you believe Alebrije's reveal scene in La Leyenda de la Nahuala emphasized how intelligent and studious he was? His intelligence started to mellow out as the series went on, but he was always much more logical than Don or Teodora.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Alebrije is what you'd call his species of mythological creature, but his friends have a hard time pronouncing his actual name.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Alebrije's form changes depending on who's looking at him. He sometimes appears as a variety of animals (goats, beavers, etc.) or as a completely different supernatural entity entirely (an imp, a triplecorn, etc.). Every form he's seen as, however, still has his color scheme, leading the viewer to note the weirdness of his appearance.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: His ability to fly, which isn't very fast and can't get him very high.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Leads the souls of the Vodnik's victims to drown him. Keep in mind Alebrije is the goofy, lovable heart of Leo's team.
  • The Big Guy: He's the physically strongest member of the group.
  • Camp Straight: Alebrije is flamboyant in both appearance and speech while having a keen sense of empathy.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Implied. In Episode 12, when Leo and Alebrije are both handcuffed by the Hospital Security Cheif, Alebrije quickly gets the both of them free by eating the handcuffs.
  • The Heart: He is usually the one giving pep talks and helping settle arguments between the heroes.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: The characters see him as a bipedal dinosaur creature.
  • Morphic Resonance: No matter how someone sees Alebrije, he still retains his color scheme.
  • The Nose Knows: Alebrije can smell anything... even magical spaces, which has proven useful more than once.
  • The Unpronounceable: Refered to as "El Alebrije de la Biblioteca" in the films, He's simply called "Alebrije" because his real name is too hard to pronounce.

    Marcella 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marcella_6.png
This girl is NOT what she seems
Voiced by: Cydney J. Fam (English), Alondra Hidalgo (Latin American Spanish), Mika Kanai (Japanese)

The new girl in Leo's town and one he has a big crush on. Marcella is an adventurous girl who is always ready to stand up for her friends...maybe a little too ready. She has a secret she doesn't want anyone to know and it might just cost her her friends if she holds onto it.


  • Action Girl: She loves using a type of Martial Arts in fights. Then there is the fact that she is a powerful witch.
  • Big Eater: Marcella is shown to be this in Episode 8, gorging down entire bowls worth of Japanese cuisine.
  • Brainwashed: Marcella, under the thrall of Baba Yaga and Nu Gui's summons spell.
  • Composite Character: Of movie characters Xóchitl and Valentina. Marcella is basically a living and older version of Xóchitl with Valentina's color scheme, tomboyish action girl persona and motivations. She also shares Xóchitl's magic and supernatural origin.
  • Cute Witch: Marcella, while initially believed by Leo to be a normal girl, is revealed late in the first season to be the daughter of a Hechicera. "Hechicera" is the Spanish word for "Sorceress". And it effectively means the same thing as "Witch" for Spanish-speaking cultures, such as New Spain. Marcella herself became one by accident when she found her mother catatonic after being attacked by Baba Yaga and Nu Gui and her powers passed down to her by touch.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her mother was one of the most powerful witches in the world, but unlike most witches in the series, she was a good person. When Nu Gui and Baba Yaga came to her to try to recruit her to their coven, she told them to leave. This resulted in a battle that left Marcella's home in flames and her mother completely catatonic. Marcella has been secretly caring for her mother for years as well as dealing with her awakened witch powers.
  • Dark Secret: She's one of the world's most powerful witches, and is part of Baba Yaga and Nu Gui's coven. Not that she joined them to be chums....
  • Dies Wide Open: Marcella falls victim to this in Episode 9 when she is magically sacrificed.
  • The Dutiful Daughter: Lacking any assistance from others due to their fear of her inherited powers, she cares for her comatose mother in secret. In fact, the first thing she thinks about upon first regaining consciousness after being resuscitated by Teodora is the moment which led her to become this.
  • From a Certain Point of View: Marcella said she wasn't a witch-in-training. Not that she wasn't a witch at all.
  • Jabba Table Manners: When presented with sushi in Episode 8, Marcella just picks picks up the food with her hands and scarfs it down, annoying Teodora who was trying to show her and Leo how to use chopsticks.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: She has a bad habit of just running into fights with little planning and often needs help getting out. This trait gets her killed at one point as her coven sisters use her to awaken the Terracotta Army. It took Teodora setting aside her jealousy to bring her back to life.
  • Method Acting: Marcella is shown in Episode 9 to be a good actor. Fooling Baba Yaga and Nu Gui, and consequently Team Legend, into believing that she had willingly joined the witches' side.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Her rash attempt to get revenge on Baba Yaga and Nu Gui for rendering her mother catatonic fails catastrophically. By joining their coven, she's subconsciously-bound to follow their summons spell; furthermore, by the time the ritual she's helping them complete is nearly done, she realizes the others intend to use her as the final ingredient, rendering any attempt at sabotage moot.
  • The Sixth Ranger: Marcella joins the group midway through the first season as its fifth member.
  • Sixth Ranger Traitor: Zig-Zagged Big Time! Marcella appears to be this when she's revealed to be a part of Baba Yaga and Nu Gui's coven, but she was actually under the control of her coven's summons spell, and only joined in the first place to try and find a method of revenge against them for what they did to her mother.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: As mentioned above, Marcella shares several traits with Xóchitl and essentially fufils the same role as her, that of a more tomboyish foil for Teodora and love interest for Leo. However while Xóchitl and Teodora were friends from the start (even if Xóchitl found her annoying, and for good reason) Teodora and Marcella aren't exactly on good terms throughout most of Legend Quest.
  • Third-Option Love Interest: She replaces Leo's two love interests from the movie pentalogy.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It's subtle, but Marcella has purple hair.

The Allies

    Finado and Moribunda 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/finadoymoribunda1.jpg
The Sugar Skulls

The twins, Finado and Moribunda, a pair of diminutive sugar skull-headed children who help run the ship and are eerily capable at seeking out clues about the Brotherhood that their taller allies often miss.


  • Cute Mute: The Sugar Skulls have yet to speak in the series. In stark contrast, They spoke in every installment of the film series except for La Leyenda de la Nahuala and La Leyenda del Charro Negro.
  • Deus ex Machina: Finado and Moribunda, are often portrayed as this, acting when the core members of Team Legend seem to be out of options. Prime examples being Episode 7, when they are shown to have brought Team Legend's airship back to them after they left it behind in Scandinavia, Episode 9, when after defeating their rivals Tiro and Pujo, they tied them to a rock with a rope that they would also use to help Team Legend get out of a pit that Baba Yaga's coven knocked them into, and Episode 12 when they managed to knock out Baba Yaga herself with a flying hammer.
  • Internal Reveal: While the audience has known since Episode 1 that Finado and Moribunda have been helping our heroes in their quest, it takes until Episode 10 for their presence to be properly revealed to Leo.
  • Meaningful Name: "Finado" is the Mexican Spanish word (used in legal speech exclusively) for "deceased" and "Moribunda" means "dying woman".
  • Those Two Guys: The two appear randomly often giving the group a helping hand.
  • Shoryuken: During the Sugar Skull's fight with Mister Madera in Episode 10, Moribunda does a Shoryuken.

    Catrina 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/catrina.png
La Calavera Catrina
Voiced by: Paula Barros (English)

A mysterious female diety who seems to be the mentor behind Team Legend. Having commissioned Finado and Moribunda to help Leo in his quest and recruited Teodora to do the same.


  • Big Good: She's the one responsible for Finado and Moribunda helping Team Legend, as well as their existence becoming known to Leo in Episode 10, and Teodora learning astral projection (with her body being comatose at the time) and traveling to the 19th century to aid Leo in his quest, as revealed in episode 12.
  • Dem Bones: She is based on calacas, skeleton figures which are decorated on The Day of the Dead, specifically the ones made out of candy. Her overall design in particular is inspired by the iconic La Calavera Catrina of Mexican culture.
  • Meaningful Name: "Catrinas" are a common image in Day of the Dead iconography and festivities, and symbolize that even the richest and most beautiful must one day die.
  • Ms. Exposition: By holding the Sugar Skull's hands in Episode 10, Leo finds himself conversing with Catrina. She explains that the fight against Quetzalcoatl is not his alone. And she gives Leo a cryptic message on how to defeat Mister Madera.
  • Spirit Advisor: With her role in Episode 10, and Episode 12 revealing that she recruited Teodora while she was in a comatose state, Catrina certainly fits the bill.

    Friar Godofredo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/godofredo.png
The power of his fist compels you
Voiced by: Paul Tei (English), Alejandro Villeli (Latin American Spanish)
Full name: Friar/Father Willy Godofredo

Friar Godofredo is a kind priest who serves as somewhat of a mentor, or even father-like figure to Leo and others, while also a teacher and member of the Brotherhood.


  • Badass Preacher: The Power of HIS FIST compels you!
  • Good Shepherd: Fights to protect his town from evil.
  • Great Big Book of Everything: Leo inherited his from Godofredo when he was sent to Quetzalcoatl's realm along with the entire town of Puebla at the end of Episode 1.
  • Holy Burns Evil: Friar Godofredo's holy water manages to burn and stagger the soulless zombie villagers, and cause Quetzalcoatl a smidgen of agony.
  • Sacrificial Lion: At the end of Episode 1, when Puebla is consigned to Quetzalcoatl's realm, Godofredo sacrifices himself to try and get Leo and Marcella to safety... only Leo makes it.
  • Shout-Out: Friar Godofredo punches a zombie while yelling "The power of my fist compels you!" Additionally, he imitates the "You shall not pass!" scene from The Lord of the Rings.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Friar Godofredo dies at the end of La Leyenda de la Nahuala, though his ghost becomes a semi-recurring character in the next two films. Here, he is currently alive.

The Villains And Monsters

    Quetzalcoatl 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/quetzal.png
The Aztec Snake God
Voiced by: Al-Kesne Shaw (English), Dan Osorio (Latin American Spanish)

The all powerful Snake God of the ancient Aztec people. While he's usually a benevolent god, this particular incarnation has since decided that humanity isn't worth his time.


  • Batman Gambit / Xanatos Gambit: As revealed in Season 1's finale, the legend that Quetzalcoatl can be killed by destroying the Esfera was planted by Quetzalcoatl himself to trick both the heroes and his Dragons with an Agenda. Once everyone was led to believe that stabbing the Esfera with the Celestial Point would kill him, all he had to do was further convince the heroes to destroy it (with the implication that he can't directly hurt his own reincarnation). The plan almost reaches the Xanatos stage when the "chosen one" Leo San Juan catches on to his trick. Quetzalcoatl promptly uses his almighty powers to forcefully remove Leo's soul from his body and take control of it in order to destroy the egg.
  • Behemoth Battle: Quetzalcoatl engages The Samurai of Dawn (a.k.a. Prince Akihito) in one of these during the final battle.
  • Big Bad: Of Season 1, ironically enough he is also the Big Good after he is reborn
  • Blow You Away: Literally too, as he breathes out strong winds against the protagonists in the final battle. As the Aztec god of wind and air, it makes sense.
  • Cessation of Existence: When a new Quetzalcoatl is born, the previous one ceases to exist.
  • Composite/And Decomposite Character: Essentially he's a reversal of the Tezcatlipoca - Quetzalcoatl in Aztec myth. In mythology, Quetzalcoatl is the "White Tezcatlipoca", being essentially a benevolent aspect of the four-sided god, while here the Tezcatlipoca-analogue is the "Black Quetzalcoatl". He also doubles as the Norse Nidhogg, being an underworld serpent rival to Fenrir.
  • Enemy Without: The current Quetzalcoatl to the one in his Esfera.
  • Goo Goo Godlike: His newly-born self is intelligent enough to speak articulately and powerful enough to travel through time to bring someone back from the dead. Not to mention that he usually devastates human civilization whenever he's fresh out of his egg.
  • Karmic Cessation Of Existence: Leo San Juan, the "chosen one" in the very prophecy that he forged as part of his plan, who just had his soul ripped from his body by the Mad God, manages to use the Astral Projection powers associated with Teodora to awaken the New Quetzalcoatl from his Esfera just seconds away from his possessed body stabbing it with the Celestial Point.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He made plans for someone destroying the Esfera thousands of years in advance by spreading the legend that whoever stabbed it gained power, unaware that destroying it ensured he got to stay alive.
  • Metamorphosis: He starts off looking like a large flying snake then eventually becomes a massive Snake Person.
  • Misery Builds Character: The logic behind raining calamities on mankind whenever he reincarnates as the surviving humans tend to be stronger and smarter than their predecessors. However soon after he reveals that he just wants the world for himself (at least in this cycle) and is tired of serving "a race of ants."
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: The New Quetzalcoatl would have devastated mankind as the snake god usually does when he's reborn, but the scheming of his previous incarnation to kill him before he could even be born and wipe out the human race for good delayed that. When Leo saves him from this fate, he's so grateful that he decides to spare the current epoch of humanity until his next life.
  • Rage Quit: Essentially the reason why a usually benevolent god would want to destroy all of humanity and remake the world as he sees fit. It's further explained that this Quetzalcoatl is tired of the never ending cycle of death and rebirth just for the benefit of people who don't even worship him anymore.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Played straight at first but then it's revealed that the Big Good is also Quetzalcoatl reborn.
    • Ironically the benevolent newborn Quetzalcoatl is even more serpent-like than his malevolent predecessor.
  • Saying Too Much: He lets his plan slip when he shows too much anger at the Celestial Point being missing, instead of being happy that the only weapon capable of destroying the Esfera is gone. Leo quickly catches on that Quetzalcoatl actually needs somebody to stab the egg.
  • There Can Only Be One: There can only be one Quetzalcoatl at a time. When the new Quetzalcoatl is born, the previous one ceases to exist. The Season 1 Quetzalcoatl's plan is to kill the next iteration of himself before he's born so he can finally remake the world and destroy humanity.

    Baba Yaga 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/baba_yaga.png
Wicked Witch Of The East
Voiced by: Blanca Bassion (English), Erica Edwards (Latin American Spanish)

A witch who despite being a servant of Quetzalcoatl, is the the most consistently appearing antagonistic force on the show, as well as the one whose caused the most bad things to happen to the team.


  • Ambiguous Situation: Its not actually clear if Fenrir killed her, we do see that Baba Yaga is chained up next to him and we see the two in shadow as Baba screams, but its yet to be shown if he actually ate her, or if Fenrir has other plans.
  • Batman Gambit: Pulls this off in episode 8. Following Alebrije's Heroic Sacrifice two episodes prior, Baba Yaga found him and turned him into the titular Kaiju, then sent him to destroy Japan, and Akihito's spirit. While that plan ultimately fails and Alebrije is returned to normal, Baba is still able to get what she wanted from Japan... the Celestial Point.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Claims to be above "mortal morality", caring only for the fate of witches.
  • Brought Down to Badass: In Episode 11, when Baba Yaga tags along with Leo and company to raid the Chilan's temple for the Esfera, she claims that she'll be just as helpless as they thanks to the temple's power rendering her magic useless. Instead of being reduced to a feeble old hag, however, she proves to be a strong, athletic, and powerful fighter, allowing her to readily survive the ordeal.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Baba Yaga falls victim to this in Episode 12 when the hammer from Don Andrés' Thor Disguise (which Fenrir had earlier sent flying randomly through the portals within Yggdrasil) is put in position to KO the witch.
  • Didn't See That Coming: She is understandably caught off guard when her attempt to sacrifice Leo, only for Teodora to take the hit, reveals that the girl isn't a normal ghost at all, even dropping the trope name in conversation.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: She's only working for Quetzalcoatl because he's trapped her under him.
  • Enemy Mine: Baba Yaga proposes this in Episode 11 in order to get the Esfera and free herself from Quetzalcoatl's servitude. Ultimately she manages to take down the Chilan and then breaks the enemy mine to take the Esfera for herself.
  • Fed to the Beast: Implied. The remaining members of Team Legend decide to punish Baba Yaga for betraying them, killing Teodora, and trying to kill her comatose body in the 21st Century by leaving her at the mercy of Fenrir, repaying the debt they had to the beast in the process.
  • Hero Killer: By the end of the first season, She's killed both of Team Legend's female members via magical sacrifice, Marcella in Episode 9 and Teodora in Episode 12. Fortunately, neither stays dead for long.
  • Impersonating an Officer: Rather, a clergyman, but this is how Baba Yaga makes her debut. At the end of Episode 2, It's revealed that Jacob, the town parson of Leeds, was locked in a closet and replaced by the witch weeks before Leo and co's arrival.
  • Lured into a Trap: Baba Yaga does this (as Aldo the Shepherd) in episode 4. After Leo and Teodora have their argument and Leo's looking for her, Aldo tells Leo that Teodora went to Medusa's lair to try and defeat the Gorgon herself. But when Leo catches up with her, she claims that Aldo told her that Leo went up on his own first. This is the first on-screen demonstration of Baba Yaga's treachery as she lured Leo and Teodora into a trap that she hoped would see both of them killed.
  • Morphic Resonance: Baba Yaga can use her powers to disguise herself, but cannot remove the shackle that binds her to Quetzalcoatl.
  • No One Should Survive That: Towards the end of Episode 9, Baba Yaga and Nu Gui get into a fight that destroys the cave they are in and Teodora is sure that neither survived. She is Instantly Proven Wrong in the final shot, when Baba's hand bursts out of the rubble.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: In episode 5, Baba Yaga takes advantage of the heroes celebrating their victory over the Vodnik by commanding her house to run away, with her in it, after they leave to rest in the town.

    Horrorosos 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/horroroso.png
The heralds of Quetzalcoatl
Voiced by: Roly Gutiérrez and Rafael Marin (both English and Latin American Spanish)

A gaggle of ghoulish monkey-like demons in service of Quetzalcoatl.


  • The Comically Serious: Horrorosos are often portrayed as silly, childish and incredibly petty. Make no mistake however, Horrorosos are just as cruel and vicious as their master. They enjoy playing and toying with their victims, laughing at their misfortune, and kicking them while they're down. They're shockingly intelligent and act more like younger humans than monkeys, not to mention they can perform feats of superhuman strength. Subverted in the fact that despite their intelligence, they often get confused over trivial matters.
  • Maniac Monkeys: They happen to look like monkeys.
  • Monsters Of The Week: For Episode 1. In their case, they become recurring mooks for the rest of the season.
  • Starter Villain: For the series at large.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: They create this by sucking the life force from most of Puebla's townsfolk and turning them into zombie-like beings.

    Jersey Devil 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jersey_devil_0.png
Unlucky 13 in one of the worst ways imaginable

Once a human child, the Jersey Devil was the 13th and final child birthed by Mother Leeds who cursed him to become the demonic monster he is now.


  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: The Devil has those, and he's able to slice through cannonballs (while they're in motion) like nothing.
  • Breath Weapon: The Devil can breathe fire in massive pillars. His fire is hot enough to melt a cannon and intense enough to burn down multiple houses.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: The Jersey Devil is a hooved, almost draconic goat-like being with jet black fur, bat-like wings and a forked tail.
  • Kryptonite Factor: The monster is vulnerable to iron. Something that the people of Leeds didn't realize when they first drove him away with iron cannonballs. And also instrumental in the Devil's ultimate demise because while he was distracted with attacking Leo, Teodora called for Alebrije to fire a cannonball at him. The Jersey Devil ends up with a hole in his chest, then melts into goop. Effectively ending his threat.
  • Monster of the Week: For Episode 2
  • One-Winged Angel: According to his origin, The Jersey Devil was born a normal human baby. But soon enough, he grew to become a monster.
  • 13 Is Unlucky: He's the 13th child in a liter of Massive Numbered Siblings.
  • Unexpected Character: Even though the Jersey Devil clearly died at the end of Episode 2, the season finale sees multiple Jersey Devils fighting for Quetzalcoatl.

    Nicht Mart 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mart.png
To sleep in Steinau, is to dream in fear
Voiced by: Roly Gutiérrez (both English and Latin American Spanish)

An alp who has the power to deliver bad dreams, as well as a shocking connection with Don Andrés.


  • Dream Weaver: The Nicht Mart can induce nightmares on people with a touch, and can personally appear in them to make things worse. If the victims realize they're dreaming however, they can turn the tables on the monster within the dream.
  • Emotion Eater: The Mart feeds off the fear of others.
  • It Amused Me: Normally, the Nicht Mart doesn't stay in a single town for long, But he made an exception with the German town of Steinau, fully intent on haunting them for eternity given their gall to stand up to him... and of course, Don Andrés' far from noble actions during his life.
  • Monster of the Week: For Episode 3
  • Your Worst Nightmare: The Nicht Mart's victims are forced to endure this whenever they fall asleep.

    Medusa 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/medusa_3.png
If this was the real thing, you'd be stoned
Voiced by: Pilar Uribe (both English and Latin American Spanish)

The infamous Gorgon herself. After being slain, She's returned as a ghost with her petrification abilities no longer affecting living humans... but now affecting ghosts.


  • Deader Than Dead: Ghosts petrified by Medusa's gaze crumble into dust once the sun rises. Not even killing her brings back those slain this way.
  • Deal with the Devil: Prior to this episode, Medusa had a pact with the Mayor of Pompeii. If the ghosts sacrificed one citizen a year, she won't attack the city. It's only after Leo inadvertently disturbs her that she breaks off the deal and goes on a rampage.
  • Disability Immunity: Reversed. After Medusa was slain and had become a ghost, she can now petrify the normally-impervious ghosts (Excluding Teodora who is NO NORMAL GHOST) with her stare, while ordinary living people, like Leo, are unaffected.
  • Hoist By Her Own Petard: TWICE! The first time was when she met her initial end at the hands of Perseus. When the cowardly hero couldn't muster the courage to truly fight her. He had her see her own reflection in his Bronze Shield, turning her to stone. Afterwards, Perseus cut her head off as a trophy, killing her in the process. The second time was when Teodora was caught by Medusa's Ghost while trying to save Leo... and to everyone's surprise, was unaffected by her Deadly Gaze. Teodora then took a selfie with the Gorgon and showed it to her, which ended up having the same effect as seeing her own reflection. Afterwards, Medusa's pertified body was knocked into the lava below... presumably killing her for good.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Medusa's personality appears to be one of utter evil and cruelty. She has no regard for the lives of either humans or ghosts and appears to slay such unlucky folk for the sheer joy of it. In addition to her love for killing, Medusa is shown to be devilishly cunning and even creative, such as when she grabbed her decapitated head by the hair and spun it around rapidly in order to petrify several Pompeiians at once.
  • Monster of the Week: For Episode 4
  • Taken for Granite: Medusa's schtick as usual.

    The Vodnik 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vodnik.png
The Frogman Cometh
Voiced by: Christopher John (English)

Once a human toy maker who intended to use his inventions to help others, he eventually got fed up with the the impurities of his fellow adults, and turned himself into a frog-like monster with dark magic. Now he steals the souls of children, trying to keep them from corruption.


    Fenrir 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fenrir.jpg
The Eater of Worlds
Voiced by: Gerald Owens (English), Miguel Ángel Ghigliazza (Latin American Spanish)

The devourer of worlds, the wolf god, and bringer of Ragnarok. Or at least he would be if he wasn't chained to the World Tree, Yggdrasil.


  • Annoying Arrows: He has several arrows lodged in his back but they don't bother him.
  • Canis Major: He is huge. He eats worlds, after all.
  • Chained to a Rock: He's stuck guarding the entrance to Yggdrasil until Ragnarok although the chain's length is rather generous.
  • Deal with the Devil: He makes a deal with Leo and co. to allow them use of the world tree if the give him a powerful artifact of Quetzalcoatl's, but since Fenrir is actually worse than the snake god, the team reneges until they "repay" it by feeding him Baba Yaga near the end of the first season.
  • Enemy Mine: He's as much an enemy of Quetzalcoatl as the heroes and is even willing to help them out. They back out as soon as they realize that he'll devour all realities if he's freed.
  • Extreme Omnivore: He devours entire worlds and can even eat spirits. In his own words "I can eat anything".
  • Faux Affably Evil: He speaks to Leo and Company in a polite and calm tone but only after he figures out Leo is The Chosen One and could be useful, beforehand he tried to eat them on the spot and after they deny him the Esfera he goes back to a snarling monster.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Luckily he is chained up because while Quetzalcoatl wants to make the world a place where only the strong survive (which exculdes humans) Fenrir just wants to devour everything.
  • Kaiju: Fenrir has all the makings of one.
  • Monster of the Week: For Episode 6... although in his case, he has the potential to become a Big Bad himself in the future.
  • Mr. Exposition: Among other things, he's the entity that reveals the prophecy to the protagonists as well as how Quetzalcoatl's doom is tied to the Esfera although he chooses to omit a number of crucial details to further his own agenda.
  • Skull for a Head: The top part of his head is a wolf skull with large horns instead of ears and eyes made of blue fire.
  • Wild Card: While Quetzalcoatl actively wanted someone to destroy his Esfera, having Fenrir feast on it was most definitely not one of the ways he wanted it to happen since it will give the wolf an unfathomably huge power boost.

    Ms. Wisp/Bactus Queen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/01_ms_wisp.png
Click here to see her true form 
Voiced by: Pilar Uribe (both English and Latin American Spanish)

The Bactus are parasites from Finland who stole teeth from various people from Vikings to civilians in order to eat them. Recently, they migrated to London, England and started up an Orphanage in order to get some teeth.


  • Anachronism Stew: The Bactus are supposedly from Finnish Mythology, but actually get their name from a 1948 Norwegian children's book.
  • Anti-Villain: Despite being a monster disguised as a human, Ms. Wisp is very motherly and caring towards her Orphans, feeding them as much food as they want and going out of her way to protect them, even if it was so she can obtain their teeth for the Bactus.
  • Framing the Guilty Party: Rather, Framing The Creepy Good Guy. Due to his creepy nature, Dr. Blackpulp was seen as a villain by the Orphans, a falsehood perpetuated by Ms. Wisp to keep him from interfering with the Bactus' machinations.
  • Glass Smack and Slide: The Tooth Fairy ends episode 7 doing this.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Thanks to Team Legend taking pity on her, Teodora decides to revamp her image so she'd have a less violent and much more peaceful method of consuming children's teeth. Essentially giving birth to the titular Tooth Fairy.
  • Monster of the Week: For Episode 7... until the end where she reforms.
  • Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: The Bactus only stole the teeth out of people because they need to eat them to live. Once Leo and the others realize this, they're able to negotiate and work out a compromise.
  • Orphanage of Love: As Ms. Wisp, The Bactus Queen runs an orphanage like a kindly old lady.
  • Solid Gold Poop: Being a Bactus, she literally poops out gold as a byproduct of eating teeth.
  • Toothy Issue: The Bactus end up causing this sort of issue in London.

    Kaiju 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaiju_2.png
怪獣 kaijū, from Japanese "strange beast"

A giant monster who seems to be attacking Japan for no reason. Later revealed to actually be Alebrije, turned into a Kaiju by Baba Yaga.


  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Thanks to a magical control collar placed around his neck by Baba Yaga.
  • Fighting Your Friend: As the Kaiju, Alebrije ends up fighting the rest of Team Legend.
  • Fire-Breathing Diner: Done realistically when Don Andrés says "They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach." and Leo gets the idea to catapult a canister of wasabi into the Kaiju's mouth. This temporarily drives the creature away, and melts his snout a bit, partially exposing Alebrije's snout underneath.
  • Kaiju: Obvious.
  • Monster of the Week: For Episode 8... until he's defeated by Prince Akihito and reverts back into Alebrije.
  • Stronger with Age: As quoted by Baba Yaga... "With each passing day, you grow larger and stronger."
  • You Don't Look Like You: In-universe, Alebrije is completely unrecognizable to his friends as the Kaiju... until he tries stomping on Don Andrés. Don has enough time to see the birthmark on Alebrije's right foot right before it makes contact with the ground. And he obviously survives to tell the rest of the team about it because he's already a ghost.

    Ittan Momen 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ittan_momen.png
Got Water? Or Fire?

Strange "Tsukumogami" of Japanese Folklore. The demons take the form of a scroll with humanoid features such as faces, eyes, mouths and arms.


  • Kryptonite Factor: While water is only an inconvenience to them, and they can multiply if cleaved in half, Not to mention the fact that they're fast and flexible. They're fatally vulnerable to fire.
  • Logical Weakness: Since they resemble paper scrolls, water can significantly hinder their movement. But only fire can finish them for good.
  • Paper People: They look like scrolls with faces and arms.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Though their screentime was relatively minor, they would be crucial in the growth of Prince Akihito to become the Prince his village needs.

    Nu Gui 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nu_gui_8.png
A Witch from China and Daughter of the First Emperor
Voiced by: Paula Barros (English), Sofía Niño de Rivera (Latin American Spanish)

Daughter of the first Emperor of China, she discovered a magic flower whose essence granted her immortality, but also drove her mad. She then poisoned her father and went on to become a powerful witch.


  • Age Without Youth: According to her origin, The human who would become Nu Gui found a magic flower whose essence granted her immortality, but didn't stop her from aging.
  • Blatant Lies: Nu Gui makes a flat-faced attempt to convince Marcella that she's not about to become the sacrifice needed to awaken the Terracotta Army... and she's not buying it.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Despite being an evil witch, and part of Baba Yaga's coven, Nu Gui has been portrayed more sympathetically than her "sister", being focused on her "noble goal" which happens to be freeing her fellow witches from Quetzalcoatl's clutches, and not much else. In the Season 1 finale, Nu Gui, forced to aid Quetzalcoatl in Baba Yaga's place, gives Leo the Celestial Point (which fell off of him without him noticing and temporarily wound up in the hands of an elite Horroroso) and begs him to fulfill his part of the prophecy and free her kind.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Mocks Baba Yaga for being Quetzalcoatl's servant and attempts to sacrifice Marcella for her own benefit, only to end up a servant herself in the final episode and forced to rely on Marcella to save her.
  • Monster of the Week: For Episode 9... then she makes one last appearance in Season 1's finale.
  • No One Should Survive That: As mentioned above, Episode 9 ends with Baba Yaga's hand bursting out of the rubble following her fight with Nu Gui. The season finale reveals that Nu Gui survived as well.
  • Patricide: According to her origin, her father; The Emperor Of China, desired immortality and was initially proud that her daughter found it (in the form of a flower emitting a special steam, from which she made a potion), seeing it as "The greatest gift a father could have". What Nu Gui didn't tell her father however was that the flower's immortality was a gift only for the first person who discovered it. For everyone else (like the Emperor for prime example), there was only madness and death. Ambitious even at a young age, Nu Gui killed her father.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Quetzalcoatl offs her pretty quick after she tries to help the protagonists. Instantly incinerating her with his Eye Beams.
  • Senior Sleep Cycle: Nu Gui falls asleep at one point in Episode 9.

    Terracotta Army 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/terracotta.png
This army is ROCK SOLID

The Terracotta Army was constructed thousands of years ago. Created by The First Emperor Of China to fight supernatural elements during his immortal reign, his daughter Nu Gui attempted to take control of this army to her own ends.


  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: After no-selling Marcella's roundhouse kick, One Terracotta Soldier spins his arms around his torso at a rapid pace.
  • Ground Punch: Terracotta Soldiers can do this with enough force to create massive shockwaves.
  • Keystone Army: Marcella was magically sacrificed in order to awaken the army, so Teodora reviving her ends up undoing the spell.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Alebrije tricks a whole bunch of Terracotta Soldiers into doing this so they'll fall into the same pit that Team Legend was sent down earlier in the episode. One soldier stops just short of falling into the pit, only to be knocked down by countless others who all fall into the pit in comedic fashion.
  • Lightning Bruiser: They're quite fast for a bunch of stone sculptures.
  • Million Mook March: Judging from Baba Yaga's words when one is successfully brought to life, There's about 8,000 Terracotta Soldiers.
  • Multi-Mook Melee: The climax of Episode 9 has Team Legend battling the entire Terracotta Army.
  • No-Sell: The Terracotta Soldier that attacks Team Legend is completely unaffected by Marcella's roundhouse kick.

    Mister Madera 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mister_madera.png
That is one scary looking puppet

Initially believed by Leo to just be a harmless (if creepy looking) puppet when he first purchases him, Mister Madera is actually a Tsukumogami, an inanimate object that comes to life on its hundredth birthday to feed on the souls of the living and the dead.


  • And I Must Scream: When Mister Madera transformed the gang sans Leo into dolls, they were still conscious and aware.
  • Ax-Crazy: In his desperation to feed on the souls of Leo and the Sugar Skulls, Mister Madera attacks the three with an axe.
  • Bazaar of the Bizarre: According to Leo, Mister Madera was found in a mysterious antique shop.
  • Creepy Doll: He's pretty creepy in appearance... but for him, "creepy" would be an understatement.
  • Demonic Dummy: One that feeds on the souls of his victims and turns their bodies into dolls.
  • Knight of Cerebus: While not appearing to be as inherently cruel as Quetzalcoatl, Baba Yaga, Medusa, or The Vodnik, Mister Madera is by far the darkest Monster of the Week to appear on the show for the various reasons described in his character tropes.
  • Monster of the Week: For Episode 10
  • Near-Villain Victory: After consuming the souls of his teammates and the Sugar Skulls, Mister Madera very nearly succeeds in draining Leo's soul as well.
  • Stealth Hi: First, Marcella throws Mister Madera overboard. Moments later, he suddenly reappears in Leo's room. Leo then tries hiding the dummy from Alebrije, stuffing it in a sock drawer, then tries showing it to him after growing suspicious due to Teodora suddenly "disappearing", and a doll of her appearing afterwards. Mister Madera suddenly disappears from the sock drawer, only for Leo and Alebrije to quickly find him standing on the bed above.
  • Throat-Slitting Gesture: After showing Leo that he's defeated the Sugar Skulls and drained their souls, Mister Madera makes this to Leo, signifying that he's next.
  • Uncanny Valley: Of the supernatural variety.
  • Ventriloquism: Leo makes Mister Madera talk like any human would do with a normal ventriloquist dummy. And this is before the puppet turns out to actually be alive.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Mister Madera is terrifyingly fast and smart. Making sure to dismantle the ship, with an ax no less, just to make it easier to steal his prey's souls.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: Mister Madera feeds on the souls of both the living and the dead.

    The Chilan 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chilan_1.png
Click here to see him when he was alive 
Voiced by: Roly Gutiérrez (both English and Latin American Spanish)

An Aztec priest that found the Esfera (Quetzalcoatl's Egg) back when he was alive. Now an indestructible undead creature with one purpose... To destroy anything that enters his temple.


  • The Determinator: The Chilan will fight to protect the Esfera at any cost.
  • Elite Zombie: The Chilan became this in order to protect the Esfera. And he leads an army of undead followers of Quetzalcoatl to attack Team Legend and Baba Yaga.
  • Giant Eye of Doom: The Chilan's final trap involves this in the form of the Great Eye. If you show fear for an instant, the Great Eye will strike you dead where you stand.
  • Glowing Eyelights of Undeath: In The Chilan's case, the eyes glow red in the dark. Then when he emerges from the shadows, the glow blue.
  • Made of Iron: The Chilan is indestructible.
  • Monster of the Week: For Episode 11
  • Necromancer: The Chilan animates the numerous skeletons resulting from the Smashing Hallway Traps of Doom to attack Team Legend and Baba Yaga when they start to get through unharmed.
  • Uncertain Doom: He's knocked off the ledge twice by Baba Yaga. After the second time, He's not seen again.
  • Was Once a Man: The Chilan was an Aztec priest in life.

    Golem 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/golem_2.png
The Gallows Curse

A gallows curse conjured by Baba Yaga, the Golem is the perfect killing machine. With no need to abide by human limitations such as food, water, or rest, he'll simply destroy everything in his way until he eventually kills his target... Teodora.


  • Advancing Boss of Doom: The Golem was sent by Baba Yaga to hunt down Teodora's comatose body and destroy it so Teodora could be properly sacrificed so that Baba Yaga could remake the entire world in her image. According to Marcella, It follows its targets through the ages, in all places at all times. And it certainly shows.
  • Implacable Man: More like Implacable Rock Monster. Like a Rock-Based Hebrew version of The Terminator, the Golem is the perfect killing machine. Not even being frozen by an exploding tank of liquid nitrogen or sliding on a soapy floor and colliding with a kitchen oven with enough force to cause an explosion is enough to stop him.
  • Living Statue: As quoted by Marcella... "Clay given life by a Hebrew sigil on the forehead." The Golem's eventually reduced to a simple immoble statue when Teodora's Smartphone displays the Hebrew Sigil for "stop".
  • Monster of the Week: For Episode 12
  • Rock Monster: The Golem is a huge, hulking, humanoid monstrosity made of hardened clay.
  • Super Strength: The Golem is incredibly strong, able to effortlessly smash anything in his path. The monster even manages to shake an entire modern day hospital in his rampage, smashing his way through doors, walls, and even an elevator.

    Tiro and Pujo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tiro_and_pujo.png
The Puppet Duo

Tiro and Pujo, two dimwitted, devil-looking puppets who took an almost instant disliking to Finado and Moribunda upon first meeting them and have acted as their rivals ever since.


  • Harmless Villains: The two previously appeared in La Leyenda de la Llorona, trying to defeat Team Legend for their master Pecas... and failing miserably. Here, they've so far only attacked Finado and Moribunda... Only to be quickly dealt with due to both their own idiocy and circumstances beyond their control. In Episode 1, the puppets were knocked away by a Legball during Leo's Legball game. In Episode 9, they tried whacking the Sugar Skulls like piñatas, only to knock each other out and wind up tied to a rock while the Sugar Skulls were saving the four core members of Team Legend.
  • Perverse Puppet: Tiro and Pujo are living puppets who look like devils.
  • Those Two Guys: The two appeared in Episode 1 and Episode 9. And in both appearances, they attacked the Sugar Skulls... or at least they tried to attack.
