Scooby-Doo

    Scrappy-Doo 

Scrappy-Doo

Played by: Scott Innes (Scrappy-Doo), Rowan Atkinson (Fake Emile Mondavarious) and J.P. Manoux (Scrappy-Rex)

The nephew of Scooby-Doo that lives with a gland disorder.


  • Adaptation Personality Change: He was a friendly, if impulsive fellow in the cartoons. Here, he's an arrogant, evil mastermind.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: While he could be obnoxious in the cartoons (his first in particular), he was a good-hearted individual who cared about his friends. Here, he's an arrogant, egotistical jerk whose obnoxiousness is taken Up to Eleven, leading to him getting kicked out of the gang. And that's before he's revealed to be a villain.
  • Adaptational Villainy: This version of Scrappy is the main villain of the first live-action film, when the original incarnation of the character was heroic and genuinely cared for his uncle and the rest of Mystery, Inc.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In the cartoons, he had super strength and was a Pint-Sized Powerhouse, able to punch through solid rock and once survived falling off a rooftop without a scratch and would occasionally be the one to incapacitate the bad guy. Here, (once depowered) he goes down with a single punch.
  • Big Bad: He is the main villain of the first live-action film.
  • Big "NO!": He yelled this after he heard Shaggy call him a bad puppy.
  • Black Sheep: Velma says that every family has one nut. He's that one nut.
  • Blatant Lies: He intentionally pissed at Daphne but shrugged it off.
  • The Dog Is The Mastermind: Literally.
  • Evil Brit: In his Emile Mondavarious disguise.
  • Flanderization: His obnoxiousness and over-confidence is exaggerated at the expense of his better qualities.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: When he tried to appoint himself the new leader of the gang in flashback, he said it was either that, or he was not staying. The rest of them unanimously decide to dump him and drive off.
  • Hate Sink: He appears in a flashback showing how he was kicked off the team, though he's portrayed as a massively egotistical jerk instead of merely being overconfident. He's also the main villain of the movie, acting out of a desire for vengeance over being kicked off the team.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In the flashback of him getting booted off the team, he really shouldn't have given the gang kicking him out as the only alternative to making him the group's new leader.
  • It's All About Me: In the flashback depicting him shows him as an egotistical jerk, which leads to the rest of Mystery, Inc. kicking him out. Velma even calls him an egomaniac.
  • Jerkass: Scrappy is an ego-driven narcissist who wanted revenge on the team, especially Scooby.
  • The Man Behind the Man: He's the real villain of the film, with Emile just being a very convincing human robot suit he pilots.
  • Master Actor: He pulls off a very convincing gentlemanly human businessman.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Despite only needing Scooby for the ritual, he invited the entire gang of Mystery Inc. to the island when the members had already broken up and went their separate ways two years ago, just so that they can witness his moment of triumph. This subsequently results in the previously-hostile Scooby Gang rekindling its relationship, coming together to defeat his plan.
  • Older Than They Look: When he appears in a flashback, Velma mentions how he wasn't a puppy anymore despite his appearances thanks to a gland disorder.
  • One-Winged Angel: His Scrappy-Rex form has him become a monstrous brute.
  • Robotic Reveal: His Emile Mondavarious disguise was a robot operated by Scrappy.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: His appearance was kept hidden by the marketing.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He becomes egotistical on top of his overconfidence, even before he seeks his revenge on the gang.
  • Urine Trouble: Once he pissed at Daphne, he was removed from the Mystery Machine.
  • Walking Spoiler: His involvement gives away the twist.
  • You Meddling Kids: Before he was cut off and sent to jail alongside N'Goo Tuana and Zarkos, he nearly referred to Mystery Inc. as meddling sons of bitches.
