The Metal Shop Teacher. While blind. He is also the Black Smith of the Ninja.

  • The Blacksmith: He forges the Ninja's weapons.
  • Blind Black Guy: In spite of his blindness, he's still able to craft some amazing swords and surprisingly good balloon.

  • Master-Apprentice Chain: Not to the Ninja but his apprentice got Stank'd when he thought he was going to be replaced by Howard.

    Mort Weinerman
Voiced by: Richard Kind

Howard and Heidi's father who, due to a corporate merger, works for McFist Industries.

  • Chairman of the Brawl: His method of breaking into McFist's weapon storage is to smash the roboape guarding it with a chair.
  • Epic Fail: His killer robot, which can barely stand and ends up destroying itself without Randy ever having to attack it.
  • Lovable Traitor: Mort's a pretty nice guy, even if he did try to help McFist kill the Ninja, the beloved town hero that's been protecting Norrisville for generations, just so he could get a promotion.
  • Papa Wolf: When he mistakenly believes the Ninja is after his son, his response is to steal one of Viceroy's Robots, and pilot it to destroy the Ninja personally.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: He shares Howard's belief that an inflatable pool filled with their own sweat is an acceptable substitute for a legitimate one.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Inverted, Mort's a pretty decent looking guy, however it's implied that his unseen wife is pretty hideous.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He only stayed on to help McFist destroy the Ninja to better provide for his family.
  • Yes-Man: In contrast to his rather strong-willed children, he's rather spineless. However "Mort-al Combat" proves he does have his limits, where his son is concerned.

    Marci Johnson McFist
Voiced by: April Stewart

  • Beauty Mark: Underneath her right eye.
  • Canada, Eh?: Her accent.
  • Dark Mistress: Slightly deconstructed as her tolerance and acceptance to Hannibal's villainy also extends to her own son's Jerkass tendencies.
  • Generation Xerox: Barring some grey hairs and a few wrinkles, she's pretty much identical to her mother, Ruth, in terms of appearance and temperament albeit she's a bit less blunt.
  • Happily Married: Oddly enough, she and her husband McFist are on good terms.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: She has a thin waist, but her chest and hips are quite large.
  • Parent with New Paramour: McFist and Bash do not get along.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: With McFist. McFist isn't exactly handsome, but she is gorgeous.
  • Understanding Wife: She chooses not to interfere with McFist's plans to defeat the Ninja.

    The First Ninja 
Voiced by: Joel McHale

The first of the Norrisville Ninjas and the last of the Norisu Nine.

  • 10-Minute Retirement: Leaves Norrisville to its fate after the Sorcerer obtains the Tengu Stone. Randy and Howard's efforts to stop the villain regardless inspire him to come back and help.
  • Arch-Enemy: Until their final battle, he was this to the Sorcerer throughout most of his life. On his part, the Sorcerer greatly dislikes him for both banishing the Sorceress to the Land of Shadows and imprisoning him underground.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Prevents the Sorcerer from killing Randy and Howard and finally gets to toss him into the pit.
  • Brought Down to Normal: After his time as the Ninja had ended, he put all of his knowledge and experience gained from his tenure into the Ninjanomicon, expelling them from his mind.
  • Greater-Scope Paragon: He serves as this for the whole series. He is the first Norrisville Ninja who passed his knowledge on to others.
  • Ice-Cream Koan: Half of his lines are made up of these in contrast to the genuine riddles and lessons the Ninjanomicon provides.
  • Kill It with Fire: Has a stronger variation of the Tengu Fire Ball that takes the form of a roaring dragon. It's powerful enough to disable the Sorcerer for a modest amount of time.
  • Last of His Kind: His eight "brothers" were all killed by the Sorcerer.
  • Martial Arts Headband: As an added bonus, he can use it as a weapon in a similar manner to how Randy uses his scarf.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: Randy earns his ire through a combination of ruining his ambush on the Sorcerer and his inability to shut up. Becomes subverted when Randy re-inspires him.

How well does it match the trope?
