ALL SPOILERS ARE UNMARKED. You have been warned.
Simone Lenoir and Lena Dupree
Two characters exclusive to Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Simone is a wealthy woman who lets the gang explore her supposedly haunted island, and Lena is her impossibly cute cook for whom Fred falls.
- Alas, Poor Villain: As horrific their actions and cat creature forms were, Lena's and Simone's motives were still tragic, but still end up having grisly Family Unfriendly Deaths that would even give kid viewers of the film nightmares. Lena would definitely fall into this due to her being the least evil in contrast to her mistress and the ferryman.
- Anti-Villain: Played With. It's understandable for Simone and Lena to be upset with Moonscar and want revenge against their people's deaths. However, since they take innocent people's lives to fuel their own, that qualifies them as the real villains. Therefore, if they started as anti-villains, they became much more evil as they started to attack innocent people.
- Asshole Victims: Their tragic backstory aside, they completely deserved the painful death by rapid aging they suffered at the end of the movie because of the countless innocents they murdered to continue being immortal.
- Ax-Crazy: Definitely, given they murdered countless people over the years with no problem and tried to off Mystery Inc. and nearly came close to killing Scooby and Shaggy by draining them dry.
- Berserk Button: Dogs, for Simone. They chase her cats, after all, and she is in fact a cat.
- Big Bad: Simone is the primary antagonist of the movie.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Both of them pretend to be kind and generous hosts, luring clueless visitors to their island home, making them feel comfortable (and lowering their guards) long enough to eventually murder them and steal their lives.
- Cat Girls: Simone and Lena are revealed to be a particularly horrifying◊ variation of these.
- Co-Dragons: Lena and Jacques are subservient to Simone.
- Cursed with Awesome: They don't seem to mind too much about becoming immortal cat monsters who can continue living indefinitely by murdering other people.
- Deal with the Devil: Cut a deal with a cat god for immortality. Originally this was to survive and get revenge on Moonscar, but after slaughtering him and his crew they became much, much worse.
- Decomposite Characters: Simone and Lena are both based on Katrina Moorkroft; A character from an unproduced episode of SWAT Kats
- Didn't Think This Through: They consider Scooby and Shaggy a pair of simpletons, so decide that making voodoo dolls of them would be a waste of time and magic wax. They find out the hard way what a big mistake this was.
- Drunk on the Dark Side: When they reveal their true nature, it becomes apparent that while they started out sympathetic and just trying to survive and avenge their people, they've long since become drunk on the power and immortality their curse grants them to the point of having the time of their lives when they drop the facade.
- Dumb Muscle: In their full werecat forms, they possess great strenght and ferocity, but only seem to communicate by roars and snarls.
- Evil Is Hammy: Lena and Simone at the climax, however, Simone's Cajun accent supplied by her voice-actress Cult Classic veteran and John Carpenter's ex-wife Adrienne Barbeau was already over-the-top, while downplayed early in the film, the hamminess really rises when the cat creatures reveal their true colors near the end. For Lena, nowadays it's no surprise for anyone familiar with Tara Strong's work:*After Fred hoped Scooby and Shaggy escaped from the women's clutches.*
- Evil Makes You Ugly: While Lena and Simone are lookers in the daylight, their Cat Girl forms however, not a pretty sight.
- Family-Unfriendly Death: After failing to drain any new souls once midnight comes, Simone, Lena and Jacques meet their end in a fitting, yet still disturbing way. We see them screeching in abject pain and anger at the ultimate failure of their plans while being graphically reduced to skeletons which then crumble violently into dust.
- Fanservice with a Smile: Lena comes across this, to which she uses it to her advantage to drain her victims after many "years of practice."
- Fantastic Racism: Simone carries this towards Scooby for being a dog who chased her cats and making a ruckus of her home, and the fact she herself is actually a feline too.
- Faux Affably Evil: Though they become much less friendly after revealing their true natures and motives.
- Foil: Lena and Simone contrast each other somewhat in personality. While Lena is friendly and is happy to invite Mystery Inc to the island, Simone is strict and is not as enthusiastic about them being in her house. They also somewhat differ in appearance, with Lena appearing younger, dressing in red, and being a brunette while Simone appears older, dresses in blue, and is a blonde. In addition, while Lena typically hunts down victims when visitors become scarce, Simone Lenoir remains at Moonscar Island while she is doing so. Finally, while Lena is concerned when Jacques is being attacked by zombies, Simone decides that draining Mystery Inc is more important so that they don't miss their deadline.
- French Jerks: Both of them are French immigrants (and in fact, old enough to have been colonial settlers), and are both pretty evil. Though only Simone has a French accent, while Lena has a Southern US accent.
- Genre Blindness: They thought so little of Shaggy and Scooby they did not even bother making voodoo dolls of them as they simply thought they were Too Dumb to Live anyway. This comes back to bite them later when they stumble into their hideout and distract them from killing Velma, Daphne, Fred, and Beau when they need to meet their deadline.
- Hero Killer: They are much more dangerous than the villains prior to them. They tried to drain Mystery Inc. of their life force and nearly succeeded in killing Scooby and Shaggy by sucking them dry.
- Human Sacrifice: They have an elaborate ritual for killing and feeding on captive victims in their underground lair.
- Immortality Immorality: Over the years, they gleefully and regularly murdered people to drain their life force and keep living.
- Jerkass: Simone can come across as this. When she made her debut, she appeared to be uptight, formal and snooty as well as having something against dogs.
- Jerkass Has a Point: Initially, it seems clearly understandable for Simone's animosity towards Scooby and dogs in general, as Scooby did cause trouble for her by chasing around her cats and making a ruckus of her property. However, it becomes subverted at the climax when she reveals her true colors and reveal herself to be a cat creature.
- Kick the Dog / Kick the Son of a Bitch: Simone tells Lena to abandon Jacques after the zombies dogpile him.
- Also, for the Kick the Dog half, sort of literal for Simone towards Scooby-Doo for being a dog.
- Knight of Cerebus: See Vile Villain, Saccharine Show below.
- Large Ham: Simone's French-Cajun accent is over-the-top, but most of the time until the climax, downplayed.
- Living Forever Is Awesome: They weren't trying to, but seem to just go with it.
- Meaningful Name:
- Simone is a French name, and the female form of Simon, itself derived from a Hebrew name meaning "He Who Hears".
- Lenoir is obviously a Portmanteau of Le Noir, or "The Dark". Altogether, that means her name is basically "She Who Hears the Dark." Given how she got her immortality, well...
- Lena's name has several meanings. Short for Elena, in Hebrew it means "Woman of Magdala,"note but also, in Greek, can mean "moonlight" - an obvious allusion to how, like Simone, she gained her immortality.
- Motive Decay: At first, they used their powers to punish the pirates who killed their people. However, after that, they decided to use it to live forever by draining the life energy of other victims.
- No Immortal Inertia: The gang succeeds in stalling Simone, Lena, and Jacques long enough for the deadline by which they need to steal souls to pass, and they promptly age into dust.
- One-Man Army: Implied, as the two of them somehow slaughtered an entire crew of armed pirates, and much later a whole regiment of Confederate soldiers.
- One-Winged Angel: Once they're ready to drain victims, they transform into werecat creatures.
- Our Werebeasts Are Different: Praying to the cat god gave them the ability to transform into hideous werecats at will every full moon, also allowing them to become immortal by draining other humans or animals of their Life Energy.
- Pet the Dog: Lena is the least evil of the three, and is shown to care for her fellow accomplices, unlike Simone who would gladly sacrifice her henchmen towards the completion of her goal, and Jacques who is essentially just a hired thug.
- Ragin Cajuns: Both of them are ethnically French, live deep in the bayous of Louisiana, and are also very ferocious monsters.
- Really 700 Years Old: They were both born in the 18th century, and were present when Morgan Moonscar and his crew invaded the island and killed off all their friends and family. For the next 200 years, they've been living off the essence of any poor soul they lure to their island.
- Redemption Rejection: Simone and Lena did not have to keep draining people's life energy, with the pirates dead, to preserve their immortality. They could've chosen to just let themselves die (as they would have anyway, of old age, if they never invoked the cat god's power), but they chose to still feed off people, even after they'd gotten their revenge against the pirates. As for Jacques, even though he asked them for it, they could have refused him but they didn't.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The reason for the aforementioned cat god deal.
- Romantic False Lead: Fred falls for Lena at their first meeting.
- Serial Killers: Having murdered countless victims for 200 years.
- Smug Snakes: Simone and Lena have their moments via mockingly taunting and gloating towards the gang after revealing themselves to be the true villains:*After Velma realized the truth.**After Fred realized Lena uses her charm to lure her victims.*Lena: I've had years of practice.*After Daphne learned the zombies are the victims of Lena and Simone.*Simone: Pretty smart for a television reporter.
- Southern Belle: Lena has shades of this, while Simone's a Rich Bitch due to her attitude towards Scooby for being a dog.
- Start of Darkness: Originally, they were part of a group of settlers who lived on the island and worshipped the cat god. During the harvest moon, when they were celebrating a successful harvest, Moonscar and his pirates arrived on the island. To keep the location of their stolen treasure secret, Moonscar and his pirates chased the settlers into the bayou where they were eaten by alligators (except Simone and Lena, who had left when the pirates arrived and returned just in time to watch everyone else die). They begged their cat god to curse the pirates, and their wish was granted, turning Simone and Lena into werecats who then killed them. However, they had to drain the life force from other people every harvest moon to preserve their immortality.
- Those Who Fight Monsters: What Moonscar did to Lena's and Simone's people was evil, yes. But what the two do after they get their revenge made them much more monstrous (literally and figuratively) then he ever was.
- Villain Ball: They became quite needlessly evil after successfully avenging their people (i.e., the only reason they chose to become cat-based Humanoid Abominations in the first place), seemingly just for the sake of the movie having a The Man Behind the Monsters Shocking Swerve.
- Villainous Breakdown: Simone loses it when Shaggy and Scooby foil her and Lena's plans. She yells "I've had enough of that meddling... dog!" before she and Lena transform into their full Cat Girl form to kill off Mystery Inc.
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Or more like Vile Villain, Saccharine Franchise, given the film itself she appeared in was Darker and Edgier, as Simone is the first villain in the Scooby Doo franchise to be outright figuratively and literally monstrous, having committed murder countless times before and tried to kill Mystery Inc. (and nearly killed Scooby and Shaggy to a point Shaggy "was starting to feel like a raisin") and an undercover police officer to preserve her immortality as well as suffering Family Unfriendly Deaths when the harvest moon became no longer in alignment.
- Walking Spoiler: Due to The Reveal of them both being the true antagonists of the movie.
- Wicked Witches: Besides turning into cat creatures, they can also craft magic voodoo dolls to manipulate their victims' bodies.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: You will want to give Lena a big hug after hearing her and Simone's Start of Darkness. Simone to a lesser extent, only because she'd likely claw your eyes out if you tried.
- Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Lena pulled this off by faking screams and concocting a story about how the zombies kidnapped Simone to lure the gang to a trap. Ironically, the zombies were after them instead of Scooby and the gang.
Featured in Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Jacques is the captain of the ferry boat from the mainland to the island.
- Asshole Victim: He was an unrepentant serial murderer of countless people, so of course he deserved to lose his ill-gained immortality along with Simone and Lena.
- Ax-Crazy: Perhaps even more so than Lena and Simone. Whereas the two women were transformed into monsters against their will, Jacques chose to be given the same curse because it would grant him immortality. He knew full well what was expected of him in return, and he is therefore implied to be an unrepentant accessory to countless murders over the years.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He's introduced as the friendly ferryman who gives the gang some history on the island and is on good terms with Simone and Lena. As it turned out, he was planning to drain the life out of Mystery Inc all along, and Scooby and Shaggy are horrified when the friendly man turns out to be a psychopathic murderer.
- The Brute: He appears to be the biggest and strongest of the werecat trio, easily manhandling Scooby and Shaggy at the same time.
- Cat Folk: He's (secretly) a Cat Guy to be exact.
- Co-Dragons: With Lena to Simone's Big Bad, as he is a far more physical threat to the gang.
- Cursed with Awesome: He intentionally sought out to turn himself into a werecat for power and immortality.
- Evil Sounds Deep: In his cat form, he has this kind of voice.
- Eye Scream: At the end of the film, Jacques gets temporarily blinded when Scooby uses one of the island's chili peppers on him.
- Fat Bastard: At first, he seems to a be a large, jolly man. But he's soon revealed to be the most unrepentant member of the werecat cult, though in his final werecat form he's much thinner than he was as a human.
- Family-Unfriendly Death: Along with Simone and Lena, Jacques quickly ages and ends up burning and then decaying into dust.
- Faux Affably Evil: Just like his female accomplices, his friendly demeanor to Mystery Inc is all just a charade to kill them.
- French Jerk: He's of Cajun French origin, and even more wicked than Lena or Simone.
- Immortality Immorality: He used his ability to steal others' life force to live for centuries.
- Immortality Seeker: This is the reason he initially went to Lena and Simone for the curse.
- Ink-Suit Actor: In case you were ever wondering what Jim Cummings actually looks like.◊ (Interestingly, in his youth Cummings actually did serve on a New Orleans riverboat.)
- Knight of Cerebus: Like his accomplices Lena and Simone, though far more so since he actually wanted to become an immortal werecat.
- Living Forever Is Awesome: Unlike Lena and Simone, he actually asks for it.
- No Immortal Inertia: Because he and his accomplices wasted too much time with trying to kill Scooby and his friends, his true age catches up and reduces him to a pile of dust.
- Our Werebeasts Are Different: He can also turn into a werecat monster at will during the full moon.
- Ragin' Cajun: Like Lena and Simone, he's an ethnically French person who lives in Louisiana.
- Really 700 Years Old: As an immortal, he's way older than he initially lets on, though it's not clear if he's around the same age as Lena and Simone (well over two centuries), as he was only transformed into a werecat sometime after they were. At least in his human form, he looks like a fairly old, fat man with grey hair.
- Screams Like a Little Girl: While in his werecat form, Shaggy and Scooby briefly manage to drive him away by squishing some island chili pepper on his eyes, causing him to let out a high-pitched shriek of pain.
- Sadist: As he is chasing Shaggy and Scooby through the woods, Jacques displays a level of bloodlust that arguably even eclipses that of Simone and Lena. So not only did he take the curse willingly, knowing what it requires for immortality, he enjoys it!
- Serial Killer: He forms a homicidal trio with Lena and Simone.
- The Sociopath: Superficially charming, a talented actor when it comes to hiding his true personality, but really homicidally selfish, enjoys playing with his food, and prone to angry outbursts when things don't go his way.
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Also like Lena and Simone, except he's shown to be more vile, because not only did he take the curse willingly, knowing that he has to send countless innocents to their deaths, but he's also a sadistic Ax-Crazy brute as demonstrated when he chases Scooby and Shaggy.
- Walking Spoiler: For the same reasons as Lena and Simone.
A large horde of undead beings who haunt Moonscar Island. But despite their scary appearances, they're not actually evil; they're just unrested souls trying to warn the Mystery Gang of the real villains on the island: Simone, Lena, and Jacques.
- And I Must Scream: Every harvest moon they return to the island as zombies... at least until the Mystery Gang frees them.
- Asshole Victim: The pirates in the backstory massacred Simone and Lena's people, so it's hard to feel bad about them being turned into zombies. Likewise, the Civil War soldiers are shown to be Confederates, so despite them not partaking in any onscreen villainy, they could fall into this as well. Fully averted with the tourists turned into zombies, who are not shown to be anything but innocent victims.
- The Atoner / HeelFace Turn: Moonscar and his pirates are to blame for starting the film's entire conflict in the first place, by murdering Simone's and Lena's loved ones long ago. But now, they just want to save more people from dying and suffering undeath like they did.
- Dark Is Not Evil: They're not evil, just victims of a horrific fate, and they use their monstrous appearance to try to scare away other potential victims.
- Earn Your Happy Ending: The gang is able to make the werecats miss their deadline, killing them and finally setting the undead's souls free to pass on to the afterlife.
- Fate Worse than Death: They must roam the island and cannot enter the afterlife until their murderers have also died.
- Friendly Zombie: They are well-intentioned, and are trying to protect the gang from the real villains (i. e. Simone, Lena, and Jacques).
- Ghost Pirates: Captain Morgan Moonscar and his fellow undead pirates, obviously. They were the first victims of the zombie curse.
- Ghostly Goals: Taking revenge for their own deaths, and saving Simone's, Lena's, and Jacques' next intended victims.
- Good All Along: They just wanted to scare the gang off to save them from the same fate that occurred to them.
- Greater-Scope Villain: Captain Moonscar's massacre of the cat-cultists (in)directly led to Lena and Simone becoming villains as well, along with the subsequent deaths of hundreds of more people over the centuries.
- Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: The gang misunderstands their warnings and they don't realize the zombies are actually trying to protect them from the real villains until near the end.
- Our Zombies Are Different: These zombies are the walking corpses of people whose life-forces were drained and consumed by the werecats, and are actually self-aware. Knowing that they have transformed into scary undead monsters, they now try to ward people away from the island so they won't suffer the same fate. Additionally, it seems that a short while before the harvest moon, the zombies first appear as ethereal spirits until the moon brings them back to physical form. They also don't need to eat; otherwise it's possible Jacques would've been torn to shreds when he was dogpiled by a swarm of them.
- Red Herring: Despite being the real monsters who chased the gang and being prominently featured on the video and DVD covers, they are not the actual antagonists of the story.
Beau is a hunky but ill-tempered gardener whom Daphne falls for. Featured in Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island.
- Becoming the Mask: He takes the gardening job very seriously, even reacting with genuine concern when Scooby accidentally ruins the work he put into it.
- Fire-Forged Friends: With Velma. She thinks Beau's a suspect, but eventually warms up to him.
- Hunk: Daphne seems to think he's quite a catch.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being initially ill-tempered, Beau did have the backs of Mystery Inc. when they were in danger and at the end of the film, after the villains are dead and the victims' souls are at peace, he revealed himself to be quite a romantic poet when saying a monologue about the beauty of the bayou to Velma.
- Red Herring: Beau, of the classic Scooby Doo criminal in a mask. Not only is that not the case, but he's an undercover cop.
- Reverse Mole: Beau is actually investigating the island's disappearances.
- The Reveal: At the very end, he reveals himself as an undercover police detective.
- Scary Minority Suspect: Beau isn't a minority, but he fits nearly every other criterion. But as a Red Herring it's all subverted.
- Undercover Cop Reveal: Though only at the very end after the werecats and zombies are all gone, does he reveal that he's actually a police detective sent in to investigate the disappearances of countless people on the island.
Snakebite Scruggs and Mojo
Featured in Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Scruggs is an overworked and cranky catfish hunter working alongside Mojo, his hunting pig.
- Adapted Out: Isn't seen or mentioned in the Scholastic children's book adaptation.
- Advertised Extra: Mark Hamill is listed in the cast before most of the gang, but Scruggs is a minor character with nothing to do with the plot.
- Fantastically Indifferent: Snakebite Scruggs spends his time on the island trying to catch Big Mona... even when the zombies show up. It's later revealed that the zombies aren't actively hurting people, so they probably ignore him.
- Jerkass: He pretty much acts like this to people who goes on to his territory. But that's a lot better than going with Immortality Immorality.
- Pet the Dog: Had the decency to save Scooby and Shaggy from alligators. Lampshaded by Scruggs himself when he curses his own conscience to save the two rather than let the alligators eat them.
- Red Herring: In the entire movie, he acted like an anti-tourist man who antagonizes people who visits his place. He definitely has nothing to do with the entire story other than occasional comic relief and saving Scooby and Shaggy from alligators.
The Hex Girls
A man featured only in Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost. He is a famous horror author whom Velma is a longtime fan of.
- And I Must Scream: Eternal imprisonment in his ancestor's spellbook is implied to be his final fate after his ancestor pulls a Taking You with Me when she's sucked back into the magic book.
- Asshole Victim: He deserved being sealed away in his ancestor's book for eternity, what with his intent to enslave the whole world and manipulating Scooby and the gang the whole time to make it possible.
- Big Bad Wannabe: He's a would-be world-conqueror, however his ancestor Sarah proved to be Eviler Than Thou.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He pretends to be the nicest guy in town, befriending Mystery Inc and gaining their trust, just long enough to trick them into helping him bring back his evil ancestor from the grave.
- Blind Without 'Em: He cannot see without his glasses, similar to Velma. Averts this after using Sarah's spell book to cure his vision problems.
- Broken Pedestal: Velma really loved Ben and his novels, at least until she learned how evil he really was of course.
- Card-Carrying Villain: After dropping his act of being a good man, he openly embraces the opportunity of becoming an evil wizard.
- The Chessmaster: He orchestrated the entire events that lead the gang to Oakhaven, including being behind the Museum mystery at the start of the movie that would lead to Velma meeting him.
- Disc-One Final Boss: As soon as Sarah is released, Ben is sealed away and she becomes the main threat.
- The Dragon: Ben serves as the hidden antagonist for most of the film. He first meets Mystery Inc. by secretly staging a mummy takeover at a museum through its employees, and invites them to his hometown of Oakhaven. Ben has everyone convinced that Sarah Ravencroft was falsely accused of being a witch, and wishes he could prove her innocence by finding her lost journal. Upon being unearthed, it is revealed to have been a spell book. Ben tricked them into finding it so that he could free Sarah and rule the world with her.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He seemed to hold a deep respect for his distant ancestor Sarah Ravencroft, even if it was because she was a powerful (and ruthless) sorceress, rather than (pretending to) wanting to "correct" her (well-deserved) reputation as an evil witch. Unfortunately, she doesn't return the same feelings.
- Even Evil Has Standards: He freed his ancestor, hoping that they would take over the world together. But instead she wants to destroy the world as revenge for her imprisonment; he's shocked to hear this, and (futilely) tries to stop her.
- Evil All Along: Throughout the film, he is presented as an intelligent and charismatic novelist whose only visible shortcoming is his over-sensitivity to the denigration of his ancestor, Sarah Ravencroft. This is a façade he uses to keep his dark intentions under wraps.
- Evil Is Hammy: He gets very theatrical while casting the spells needed to free Sarah Ravencroft.
- Evil Is Not a Toy: Severely underestimated his ancestor, and has his smug belief that she'll make him a powerful warlock completely shattered when she reveals that she has no intention of ruling the world, let alone helping him with doing that.
- Evil Sorcerer: After summoning Sarah, he becomes a warlock with his own magic powers, though still not powerful enough to be her equal.
- Expy: He's loosely based on Stephen King and H. P. Lovecraft, famous horror writers from the New England region.
- Faux Affably Evil: Ben can put on the appearance of being a kind, caring, generous man. But it's ultimately an act, as he's really just a ruthless and devious sociopath.
- Genre Blindness: If he hadn't suddenly grabbed the Idiot Ball and infuriated the ghost, he probably would've won. Also, the poor guy should've known basically giving Scooby and Shaggy his credit card at a local restaurant was a bad idea given the pair's gluttony (at least he's too dead to pay the bill now!).
- The Heavy: Ben's the one guiding the plot.
- Knight of Cerebus: Reveals himself as a serious threat at the climax, until his ancestor Sarah steps in.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Along with Sarah, he suffers the same fate of getting trapped in her spell book in the ending, possibly even dying when it gets set on fire.
- The Sociopath: Ben Ravencroft is easily one of the most evil villains in the Scooby-Doo franchise. He has an uncanny ability to manipulate the people around him into doing his bidding, all the while maintaining a veneer of genuine concern for them. No one suspects a thing until he reveals his true colors at the film's climax. Once he gets what he wants, he turns on every single one of them without hesitation, making it clear that any attachments he may have formed with others (e.g. Velma, the residents of Oakhaven) were completely feigned. A megalomaniac, he is very much given to delusions of grandeur and shows absolutely no remorse for any of his misdeeds.
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Ben is a devious and dangerous warlock. However, the threat posed by him is eclipsed by that of his more genocidal ancestor after she is released from her prison.
- Wicked Cultured: He's a talented writer, a literature buff, loves traveling to Europe, and also a fanatical occultist who wants to learn dark magic and conquer the world.
- Witch Species: He's distantly descended from a witch, and releasing her unlocks his own (lesser) magical powers.
A witch who was imprisoned in her own spell book until her descendant Ben found the book and released her.
- Acquitted Too Late: Invoked by Ben. He tricks the gang into helping him by claiming she was wrongfully executed, and the book he's looking for is the proof he needs to have her officially declared innocent. In reality, she really was just as bad as legend claimed she was.
- Big Bad: She's the real main villain of the story, quickly upstaging Ben after she's released.
- Card-Carrying Villain: Unlike Ben, she doesn't even try to pretend to be a good person.
- The Comically Serious: Her reaction when Scooby and Shaggy splashed water at her, thinking that she'll melt like the Wicked Witch of the West.
- Evil Is Hammy: Just like Ben, she proves to be a completely insane megalomaniac with a loud voice.
- Evil Is Not a Toy: Ben releases her under the belief she'll help him Take Over the World. He's horribly wrong, because she has different plans.
- Evil Matriarch: Considering Ben, her descendant, shares her surname, it's likely that Sarah mothered a son before her imprisonment.
- Kill It with Fire: Right after being sealed in her book for a second time, fire is accidentally set on the book.
- Knight of Cerebus: Once the film approaches her release, things get really dark.
- Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: Subverted. Ben lied that she was a benevolent "Wiccan" Witch Doctor who was unjustly scapegoated for using magic, knowing fully well that she was indeed a Wicked Witch.
- Our Ghosts Are Different: She's the spirit of a deceased witch, who still retains her vast powers of Black Magic.
- Omnicidal Maniac: All Sarah wants to do is destroy the world as revenge for her imprisonment.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Was somehow imprisoned in her own spell book for centuries.
- Taking You with Me: She does it to Ben once she's re-imprisoned in the book, dragging him inside as well just so she won't suffer this fate alone.
- Ungrateful Bitch: She refuses to thank or reward Ben for going out of his way to liberate her from eternal imprisonment.
- Walking Spoiler: She only shows up in the final act of the movie, and her true, evil nature and magic powers are the central plot twist of the story.
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: She's the ghost of a witch who wants to destroy the whole world for being imprisoned centuries ago.
- Wicked Witch: She was accused of being one in life. This turns out to actually be completely true.
Crystal and Amber
A modern day flower girl who engages in nature photography, complete with pet golden retriever. As such, the pair seem almost perfect as potential love interests for Shaggy and Scooby. She is actually a government agent investigating reports of alien broadcasts. And as for which government...
- Alien Among Us: They're both aliens in disguise. That government they mentioned? It's not of Earth.
- Ambiguously Brown: Crystal looks vaguely Native American, though it's subverted because as an alien, her true appearance doesn't even look human.
- But Now I Must Go: After dealing with SALF, the duo return home per their orders. Though they leave on friendly terms, Shaggy and Scooby are still heartbroken.
- Contrasting Replacement Character: They serve similar characters traits like Lena Dupree and Ben Ravencroft (Fred and Velma), who were fell in love with one of the members of the Mystery Gang who ended revealing they're supernatural characters, in this case it's Shaggy and Scooby. Though unlike them, they're actually good.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: Amber is initially cold to Scooby's advances, but gradually warms up to him.
- Exact Words: They never said which government they work for...
- Exposed Extraterrestrials: In their true forms as aliens, they do not appear to wear clothes.
- Human Disguise: Respectively disguised as a human and dog to blend in on Earth.
- Interspecies Romance: With Shaggy and Scooby, though this fact is not known to them until the end. And unfortunately it doesn't last long, because they have to return to their home planet.
- New-Age Retro Hippie: Crystal looks like a 1960s hippie, but about a few decades too late. She later reveals the planet she and Amber are from (which is twenty light years away from Earth) had received TV and radio broadcasts form the 1960s, so she had assumed that the people of Earth still talked and dressed like that, which explained why she acted and dressed the way she did when in her human disguise.
- Nice Girl: Crystal is very kind and sweet to Shaggy.
- Star-Crossed Lovers: Rather literally with Shaggy and Scooby. Or as Crystal admits, "long-distance relationships never work out".
- Suddenly Voiced: At the end of the film, Amber reveals she can talk.
- Talking Animal: Amber turns out to be one, which surprises Shaggy and Scooby. Fred doesn't let this go unlampshaded.
Steve, Laura, and Max
Government workers assigned to monitor the satellite dishes in hopes of discovering alien life, which they admit is an utter waste of time and tax money.
- Affably Evil: Particularly Max is friendly when he first meets the group.
- Alien Abduction: They kidnap Lester, Shaggy, and Scooby while pretending to be aliens. They also snatch some cows with the intent of reselling them.
- Big Bad: They're the so-called "invaders", using alien disguises (with a movie prop to simulate an alien spacecraft) to scare away anyone from the mines so they can dig up the gold. At the same time keeping their cushy jobs. This wouldn't seem so bad until they nearly try to kill Fred, Velma, and Daphne to keep their secret hidden.
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Unlike the previous villains who are supernatural and have an agenda with everyone around them, these three are just regular humans who are just greedy for money. Also unlike the previous villains where they're killed or trapped, they get arrested for their actions.
- Greed: They are immensely greedy and constantly think up new ways to make a buck.
- He Knows Too Much: After revealing themselves as the culprits to Mystery Inc., they attempt to throw them into a pit to cover up their scheme.
- "Scooby-Doo" Hoax: Played straight, as they're pretending to be "aliens" to cover up their discovery of a gold mine. Little did they know however, there were in fact some real aliens (disguised as Earthlings no less) that were coincidentally visiting their desert town.
- Surveillance Station Slacker: Their day job, which was so boring and underpaying that they turned to crime.
- Token Trio: A very rare villainous example, with the white male Steve, the female Laura and the black male Max. The association of this trope with heroic characters actually helps keep them above the audience's suspicions for most of the movie.
Military Police Officers
A pair of (fake) government officers hired to prevent trespassing into a secret facility (which is actually a lost gold mine).
An aged man and aspiring landscape painter who claims to have been abducted by aliens.
- Alien Abduction: He claimed to have experienced one of these. He doesn't realize he was actually kidnapped by disguised humans with a fake spaceship.
- Conspiracy Theorist: His alleged abduction made him obsessively paranoid about aliens, claiming they want to take over Earth.
- Exact Words: He claims to have pictures of the aliens who got him. He does. He painted them himself. It becomes a Brick Joke in the end when the bad guys moan that nobody will believe them about the real aliens because they have no proof. Once Lester mentions the "pictures" again, they happily assume he's talking about photographic evidence and hope they'll be able to make a fortune by selling the story.
- Expy: Lester has some similarities to the farmer from the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "Spooky Space Kook," due to them having farmer appearances and claiming to have seen aliens. In addition, Lester's voice provided by Jeff Bennett resembled the farmer's voice actor Hal Smith's voice.
- Nice Guy: He's generous enough to let Mystery Inc stay at his house until their Mystery Machine van gets repaired.
Gruff vehicle repairman. Works at his own pace and can often be seen on the desert roads.
- Ambiguously Brown: Implied to be of Native American-descent.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold/Real Men Wear Pink: He starts off as rather gruff and rude towards the gang, but eventually proves to be a genuinely sweet-natured guy. To go into greater detail —
- After Fred and the girls (and Lester) find him out in the desert one day and he refuses to tell why, Buck (after he's finally fixed the van) reluctantly reveals that a hobby of his is collecting/pressing flowers. He shows Fred and the girls one book of his collection, and they note that the flowers Buck has are very beautiful.
Dottie and Sergio
The waitress and cook at the local diner. Vitriolic with each other at best. Dottie has a thing for Fred.
- Abhorrent Admirer: Dottie for Fred. Sergio is quick to point this out, snarking that a dream about her would be a nightmare when she claims to be the woman of Fred's dreams.
- Ambiguously Brown: Sergio appears to be of Mexican descent.
- She's Got Legs: An odd lead-in to the "Groovy" song features an extended look at Dottie's legs as she walks away.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Despite their incessant bickering, they must care for each other on some level considering they do work together (and, from what it sounds like, have been for a very long time).

The main villain of Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase. A malevolent energy being obsessed with baseball, who traps the gang in a video game, and turns out to be created by a jealous computer programmer.
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: He was only supposed to ruin Eric's project. Unfortunately for Bill, he goes a little too far.
- Big Bad: The main antagonist of Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase.
- Big "NO!": He yells "No" as he disintegrates upon getting beaten by Scooby, who managed to get hold of the final Scooby Snax box.
- Butt-Monkey: In a departure from most Scooby-Doo villains, he suffers plenty of injuries at the hands of the gang, like when Shaggy and Scooby manage to hold him down and electrocute him twice.
- Card-Carrying Villain: Probably doesn't know why he even exists, but he seems to be happy as long as he gets to make misery for the gang.
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Unlike the previous villains who are either supernaturals or just a guy in a mask, the Phantom Virus is created by someone else. While still as threatening as the previous villains, he acts a bit sillier.
- Dragon-in-Chief: He serves as Bill's right hand man, but does a lot more in causing conflict than his creator does.
- Electronic Speech Impediment: While yelling out his Big "NO!" upon his defeat, his voice slows down, deepens and devolves into a pained, groaning sound.
- Energy Being: He is completely made of electricity.
- Evil Laugh: He really loves to let out his sinister chuckles.
- Faux Affably Evil: Pretends to be friendly and likeable while constantly antagonizing the gang and trying his best to kill them.
- Forgot About His Powers: There are several points in the movie where the Virus could have easily defeated the gang using his electric powers, but he inexplicably never thinks to use them whenever he has a clear shot. The same goes for his control over technology, which he doesn't think to use when a robot grabs him and throws him into a door.
- Gone Horribly Right: He was created by Bill to sabotage Eric's project. He turns out to be far worse than expected. And also leads to Bill's own downfall because of his own love for baseball.
- Killed Off for Real: After being beaten, he's deleted as the game starts to reset itself.
- Kryptonite Factor: Magnets make him vulnerable.
- Oh, Crap!: He has a shocked look on his face when he sees Scooby has managed to take the final box of Scooby Snax, effectively beating the game and erasing the Virus from existence.
- Person of Mass Destruction: As pointed out, if allowed to run loose in the real world, he could potentially destroy civilization.
- Pungeon Master: He is constantly spewing out baseball-related quips, which ultimately clues the gang in to who created him.
- Shock and Awe: He can control electricity and use it as a weapon.
- Slasher Smile: The Phantom Virus has a manic grin as his default expression.
- Technopath: He demonstrates the ability to control machines.
- Verbal Tic: Often says baseball-themed puns (i.e. "Let's play ball!"; "How's this for a hitter?"; "You're in the major leagues now!"), which foreshadows who his creator is.
An old high school friend of Mystery Incorporated.
- Always Someone Better: To Bill—as Bill notes, even though Eric was a more recent student (compared to Bill) and Bill was arguably Dr. Kaufman's best student, the professor still ended choosing Eric's project for the upcoming science competition instead of Bill's.
- Gadgeteer Genius: He's a mechanically-inclined genius.
- Ink-Suit Actor: He resembles his voice actor, Bob Bergen.
- We Used to Be Friends: With Bill by the of the movie when he turns out to be the culprit.
- Author Appeal: In-Universe, he ends up being exposed because he couldn't resist programming his love of baseball into the Phantom Virus.
- Evil Redhead: He's a redhead and The Man Behind the Man for the Phantom Virus.
- Green-Eyed Monster: The reason why he created the phantom virus was because that he was jealous that Eric was chosen for the science competition despite being more a recent student.
- Hoist by His Own Petard / Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: As showcased at the start of the movie, he loves baseball. But this passion of his backfired as he encoded baseball puns into the virus, which came back to bite him when the gang piece together the connection between the two.
- The Man Behind the Man: He created the Phantom Virus.
- Nice Hat: Always wears his baseball cap.
- He Knows Too Much: Preemptively. He knew Mystery Inc will likely trace the Phantom back to him, so he zapped them into the game to try and get rid of them.
- Villain: Exit, Stage Left: Tried to escape when the gang were stating the clues to the others after beating the virus, but is quickly blocked and caught.
- Walking Spoiler: He's more important to the plot than it seems, so it's hard to say too much about him without spoiling the ending.
- Cool Old Guy: He's elderly and a scientist.
- Herr Doktor: Wild hair, check. Looks like Einstein, check. Speaks in a German Accent, double check.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: After Bill's been caught and is being carted off, Dr. Kaufman explains that he considers all of his students to be equal, no matter how long any of them have been attending the university.
- Voiced by: Joe Alaskey
- Agent Scully: Officer Wembley, before the gang are blasted into the game, disbelieves there is a real phantom and thinks it's a prank. Justified in that he hasn't seen the phantom.
- The Bad Guys Are Cops: Defied.I am an officer of the law, well, sort of, I've never committed a crime in my life.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite acting suspicious towards the gang when they first show up the campus, he shows concern for their safety when they end up being transported into the game.
- Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist: Officer Wembley at first plays an antagonistic role to the gang, suspicious of them and forcing Fred, Daphne and Velma to go with him to the lab. Justified, in that they were behaving oddly. He is even suspected of being a Dirty Cop, considering he was in the lab when the gang were blasted into the game. He isn't and even helps arrest the real villain.
Wildwind (Dark Skull, Stormy Weathers, and Lighting Strikes)
An Australian rock group who went missing some time ago and were rumored to have been turned into vampires by the Yowie-Yahoo.

- Cute Clumsy Girl: Much like Daphne, Shannon's (presumably) this—also, according to Shannon, the clumsiness that led to Daphne being referred to as "danger-prone" is apparently a hereditary trait for the Blakes (at least when it comes to the Scottish part of Daphne's family).

- Papa Wolf: He's eventually revealed to be the father of Fairy Princess Willow, and is also shown to be rather protective of her—seriously, he would've traded his Goblin Scepter just to so his daughter would be safe.
Fairy Princess Willow
A fairy princess featured in Scooby-Doo! and the Goblin King. She's the Goblin King's daughter.

- Break the Cutie: Poor Madelyn falls victim to this trope being trapped in a tower by the Gryphon.
- The Cameo: She briefly appears in a flashback in Frankencreepy.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Well, rather the lack of her presence is what is important in Frankencreepy, because the villain, who are scamming Velma and claim to know her entire history, failed to take note that Velma has a sister, so viewers that believe these movies share continuity may have their red flags raised.
- Distressed Damsel: After she is kidnapped by the Gryphon in the middle of the movie.

A forest ranger seen throughout Scooby-Doo! Camp Scare. Turns out to be the Woodsman, the Fishman, and the Banshee.

- Even Evil Has Standards: Still tried evacuating the camp before flooding it.
- Character Development: She becomes less introverted and more open over the course of the movie.
- Deadpan Snarker: Probably the snarliest character in the movie.

Professor Svankmajer and Winsor wanted to scare the whole town away so that they could safely remove, and keep for themselves, a perfectly preserved dinosaur, encased in crystal.

- Cool Old Guy: He's an old man who owns a spa and is a master of hypnotism.
- Hypno Fool: His hypnotism equipment works so well, that he always hypnotizing himself at the end. Not throughout the whole thing, just at the part where he tells his subject to wake up having no recollection of what happened.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: At the end, Shaggy's hypnosis is undone, only for everyone else in the gang to believe their Shaggy as well. From what we see at the ending, Mr. Hubley doesn't fix it.

A French-Canadian strongman that travels with the Brancusi Circus in Big Top Scooby-Doo!.

- Top-Heavy Guy: He is big and muscular.
- Third-Person Person: He constantly refers to himself in third person.
Oliverio and Lena
Two German trapeze artists seen throughout Big Top Scooby-Doo!.

- Tagalong Kid: He's mainly just a youngster who hangs around with Shaggy and Scooby.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has green hair, which definitely makes him stand out.
The producer of the new Darker and Edgier Blue Falcon movie.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Jennifer's love for putting "revenge" in the titles of her movies and her glee at blowing things up instead of having a real story make her a very unflattering reference to Michael Bay.
- Red Herring: Shaggy points out that she's happy about all the publicity the Hyde attacks are creating for the new movie, but she's not behind them.
The original Blue Falcon, who is not happy about the reboot.
- Advertised Extra: Despite Blue Falcon being seen on the film cover, being on equal footing with the rest of the cast (or Shaggy and Scooby at least), the man who played Blue Falcon is only in a small handful of scenes. Justified in that he's mostly there trying to prove his worth of being the original Blue Falcon and because he was tricked into being the bad guy in order to gain recognition.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: Sadly, Mr. Garrison was swindled out of the rights to the Blue Falcon and was not even allowed to wear the character's costume for years. It gets even worse after he becomes a prime suspect in the Hyde attacks, thanks to his unhappiness about the new movie.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Mr. Garrison may be grouchy, but he's no more a villain than the guy he played. He was not behind the attacks, despite his dislike of the reboot, and he even pulls a last-minute save when Scooby is attacked by the Hyde Hound.
- Large Ham: He's very expressive, much like his inspiration Adam West.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: His character is clearly made to be Adam West, complete with Jeff Bennett doing an impersonation of West; furthermore, the part about him being banned from wearing the Blue Falcon costume by the producers of a new movie about the character is taken from real life, based on an incident where Clayton Moore was sued by the producers of Legend of The Lone Ranger over his continued appearances as the character taking attention away from their movie.
- Red Herring: He is the primary suspect during the Hyde attacks, and it is seemingly confirmed when he's found in the cockpit of the giant Hyde robot. However, it turns out to be a Frame-Up.
- Tuckerization: His name is an homage to Gary Owens, the original voice actor of the Blue Falcon.
The Phantom of the Chicago Opera house in Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright.
- Badass Baritone: His magnificent, hooting Evil Laugh.
- Legacy Character: The original Phantom bedeviled the Opera House back during its "disco hall" phase in the 70's. His disguise is used by four other people for independent reasons.
- The first and possibly "main" Phantom to appear is Crissy's father, who is out to sabotage the other contestants so that Crissy will win. This is the "CRISSY MUST WIN" Phantom.
- The other main Phantom is Dewey Ottoman, who moonlights as a high-profile thief and is using the whole thing as a cover so he can steal a diamond while the cops are distracted. This is the lemon-scented Phantom.
- Mel Richmond is attempting to burn down the Opera House to collect the insurance and get rid of the drain on his finances. Notably, he only started doing this well after the first two Phantoms began their sprees (if not the very scene he was caught) and was merely using the opportunity to avoid suspicion.
- Brick Pimiento was the last Phantom to be rounded up; he was exploiting the attacks to raise hype for the show and can be presumed to be the cause of the Phantom's command of the cameras. He's guilty of abetting criminals at the very least by exaggerating their effects and hindering the police. Like Mel, he seems to have been using the opportunity, so he started later.
- Shout-Out: To The Phantom of the Opera, naturally.
The host of Talent Star.
- Catchphrase: "Fantastic!"
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: After Chrissy rudely pushes Brick out of the way after her act, he coldly tells her her father's been arrested before her mother can break the news to her gently.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: Brick Pimiento concludes his self-introduction with, "...and there's definitely no ghost."
The assistant director of Talent Star.
- Establishing Character Moment: Dewey's slightly neurotic obsession with cleanliness is on display from the very beginning.Dewey: The garbage in this trash can is filthy. I want this garbage cleaned at once!
- Obfuscating Stupidity: Not stupidity per se, but Dewey Ottoman seems to exaggerate his germ obsession and puts forth a frail, neurotic disposition - including fainting several times at the mere mention of the Phantom. As a result, the gang agrees that he's creepy but don't seriously consider him as the Phantom. Boy are they wrong - turns out he's an international thief, and during the final Car Chase, though he's still foppish and clean he drops the act almost entirely. He even gets covered with gunk and trash several times and outright ignores it in his pursuit of the Soap Diamond.
- Terrified of Germs: He is compulsive about cleanliness, especially worried about the germs carried by dogs. This turns out to be what gives him away as one of the Phantoms. The lemon scent that Shaggy and Scooby picked up during their encounter with the Phantom was probably his hand sanitizer.
A young singer and guitarist.
- Foil: To Emma, the sweetheart violinist with folksy folks who are hoping to win the cash prize to save their farm.

- Troubling Unchild Like Behaviour: She and her song, "Homewrecker". She spends the whole movie in a strapless dress and Opera Gloves, and she's not even a teenager.Velma: For a girl her age, that song seems a little... extremely inappropriate.Fred: Yeah.Daphne: Very extremely.
A young violinist.

- Little Miss Snarker: Downplayed. She has a very subtle strain of snark that you have to pay attention to notice.Fred: Wow, Emma, you do make better bait than us!
- Minnesota Nice: She and her parents, though Emma's accent is more subtle than her parents' accents.
- Nice Girl: Emma loves everybody, is extremely kind, very sportsman-like (especially in contrast to the other contestants), makes instant friends with Fred and Daphne and even seem to be rooting for them at some points. She and her folks are such incredibly good people that the viewer seem almost expected to think it's an act and one of them is the Phantom, especially after we find out that they need to win the competition to pay off their debts. It isn't. They really are that good.
A female singer.

A female gothic dinosaur-styled band
- All There in the Script: The members of Girl-o-saurus Rex are named Cathy, Nancy, Donna, and Amy... but you'd be forgiven for not knowing that; the only time they're named is when one of the girls gets snippy with Cathy for being too much of a Genki Girl.
- Perky Goth: Cathy, the green-haired member. The other members are pretty perky as well, but are a little bit better at hiding it. Slightly.Cathy: (high pitched giggle) Omigosh. We are so metal!
