Superjail Employees

    In General
From left to right: Alice, The Warden, Jailbot, and Jared.note 
The jail's staff. They oversee the controlled chaos and try to keep everything in check.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: They bicker, belittle, and argue with each other in almost every episode with poor Jared getting the most of it. They are, however, not afraid to have a Friendship Moment every now and then.
  • Badass Crew: The Warden is a Reality Warper (though he's mostly a Non-Action Guy), Jared is a Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass with a mastery in magic, Alice is a nearly unstoppable One-Man Army, Jailbot is a Do-Anything Robot with an unlimited amount of weapons, and The Doctor is a Mad Scientist Badass Normal.
  • Breaking the Fellowship: In pretty much every two-parter.
    • In the Time-Police two-parter, The Warden is stuck in time prison, the inmates are left stranded in Superjail, while Jared, Alice, and Jailbot go there seperate ways, seeking new job opportunities.
    • During the first half of the "Vacation" two-parter, The Warden, Jared, The Doctor, and the surviving inmates are trapped in a heavily disrepaired Jailboat while Alice and Jailbot are missing.
    • During the Superhell! arc, The Warden has gone mad with his newly acquired fire powers, Jared and the Doctor are left behind in Superhell, Jailbot is presumably dead, while Alice and Stingray head off to Ultraprison.
  • Ensemble Cast: During the first season, The Warden and Jared arguably had the most screen time and development, with Alice, Jailbot, and the rest of the inmates being satellite characters to their plots. Seasons 2 and onward expanded on the rest of the cast while the two take somewhat of a backseat in a lot of episodes.
  • Lack of Empathy: They really do not care about the inmates getting routinely massacred. It's all part of the job for them.
  • A Lighter Shade of Black: To Stingray. While Stingray is an outright supervillain who deserves to be in Superjail, the staff at the very least are Well Intentioned Extremists who are just doing their jobs.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: When it's not the Twins, you can count on them inevitably screwing a situation up and takings things From Bad to Worse.
  • Plot Armor: Subverted. While they usually remain on top of the inmates — even they can get caught up with the chaos. "Cold-Blooded" is a perfect example of how they can be victims of their own mayhem.
  • My Greatest Failure: The Series Finale reveals that they all share one involving The Superjail Six, the first six inmates to ever escape Superjail. The Warden feels as if it was his fault for letting them escape and undergoes a massive depressive state. Alice and Jared, on the other hand, are ashamed of their rookie mistakes in accidentally freeing them and doing nothing to get them back.
  • Oddly Small Organization: Depending on the Writer. Some episodes depict the entire staff to just being the main four, The Doctor, and the few lunch ladies. Other episodes depict several robot/armored soldiers that act as security and Warden humanoids with giant eyeballs instead of heads acting as Mission Control.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: After season one, they become a little less heartless towards the inmates and are more prone to throw them a bone or two once in a while.
  • Villain Protagonist: All of them to varying degrees. Jared is the least "villain" of the group, but he has moments.
    The Warden
Voiced by: David Wain

The founder of the titular prison, the Warden is an eccentric, twisted Willy Wonka expy that has a flair for the dramatic. Although very childish on first glance, the Warden actually seems to be quite brilliant, considering he built the prison almost singlehandedly, along with all of the wild, wacky, overly complicated contraptions inside.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Is this to Alice. He constantly tries flirt with her despite wanting nothing to do with him.
  • Affably Evil: The Warden can be really cordial and polite at times, too bad he runs a literal meat grinder he calls a jail and is severely shaky when it comes to his morality.
  • Berserk Button: Killing any living thing in front of him is a really bad idea...
  • Bloody Hilarious: Gets this on many occasions such as have a giant pair of scissors being cut through his chest or having all of his bones taken out of his body.
  • Butt-Monkey: Zig-zagged. When it isn't Jared it tends to be him.
  • Child Hater: The sight of one pure child makes makes him so angry that it results in him giving birth to a little, angry demon that represents his inner child. Given how much he hates his own childhood thanks to his abusive father, it's no wonder he gets angry, bitter, jealous and resentful towards the little cancer patient.
  • Childish Tooth Gap: Has a noticeable gap between his front teeth and is a Manchild.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: It is very clear that The Warden lives in his own little happy world where everything goes his way — and the jail reflects that.
  • Depending on the Writer: Whether or not Superjail would be better off without his control. In "Time Police" and "Superfail!", the jail collapses when the Warden is not present. However in "The Superjail Six" where he is gone for six months, the prison ran just fine with jared and Alice in control. Ditto for "Best Friends Forever" where it seems like Superjail would really fall apart if Jailbot is missing, not The Warden.
  • The Ditz: He becomes a lot less competent after the first season. likely due to his Manchild traits becoming more prominent.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Everyone calls him the Warden.
  • Freudian Excuse: Good lord. Let's just say his dad put him through some rather....questionable ordeals as a kid.
  • Humiliation Conga: He suffers two big ones in Best Friends Forever and Uh-Oh, It's Magic.
  • Jerkass: His treatment towards Jared is incredibly mean. He shows absolutely no respect towards him, Ccnstantly belittles him at every moment, shows that he doesn't really care about him, and at times he even injures him. Jared, on the other hand, constantly stands on his side and stays loyal to him.
  • Karma Houdini: When it comes to his horrendous treatment towards Jared or to the rest of the inmates, he rarely gets punished for it.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty: That being said... there have been moments where karma hits him hard.
    • The entirety of "Best Friends Forever" is one long massive Humiliation Conga for the Warden, his peers actively manipulate him (yes including Jared) to do jobs that all end up with the Warden being heavily mutilated.
    • In "Ghosts", when The Warden callously "pardons" all of the ghosts of the dead inmates in the afterlife, they immediately see right through his lies and all of them proceed to beat the crap out of him in revenge.
    • "Supefail" has Jared finally attacking the Warden after repeatedly taunting him by calling him a failure. Needless to say, the chain reaction of violence culminates to The Warden being crushed alive by one of his massive eye-towers.
    • In "Uh Oh, It's Magic", he ends up in a similar position to Jared, where he is constantly humiliated and injured by his superiors, however unlike Jared, The Warden has it much, much worse.
    • His constant flirtings towards Alice finally takes it's toll in "Special Needs", where the Warden in an attempt to yet again flirt with her, ends up with him being severely injured (such as having all of his bones ripped out of his body) and ends up in a bodycast.
    • In "Jean & Paul & Beefy & Alice", The Warden becomes increasingly more frustrated when it turns out that Jared is actually better at golf than him. Jared milks it for all it's worth, most notably when he decides to crush the Warden's hand and then whacks him in the crotch with a golf club upon finding out that he's cheating.
  • Lack of Empathy: The only thing he's ever felt any guilt for is... breaking up the gay couple.
  • Large Ham: The Warden really loves to play out his role as a The Wonka and often uses his reality-warping powers to play up his dramatics.
  • Lennon Specs: He's rarely ever seen without those glasses, with the exception of the time he dressed as a luchadore for Superjail's fight club.
  • Mad God: The Warden shows off almost god-like control over everything and anything within Superjail and its own "reality". He often bends reality to his own fanciful, psychotic whims, much to the misfortune of others.
  • Mad Scientist: There is no other explanation for his Clone-a-majig, or the ten thousand other useless killing machines he's made.
  • Manchild: Even lampshaded by the Mistress. In the first season, he treats his jail like an actual jail. After the first season, he begins to treat the jail less like a facility that holds prisoners and more like a glorified playground-like Egopolis. One where he spends more of his time trying to have fun than actually running the place. Jared frequently tells him off for this but he hardly ever listens.
  • Mr. Seahorse: He literally gives birth to his murderous inner child.
  • Non-Action Guy: The Warden isn't what you call a fighter. He usually sends out Alice, Jailbot, or even the inmates to deal with his enemies. Made apparent when he gets his ass kicked by the inmates in "Best Friends Forever" where Alice and Jailbot were MIA at the time.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Of both Willy Wonka and his voice actor David Wain, while some fans also believe he looks similar to the SS member Josef Mengele. Cane, gloves, haircut, gap between his teeth, and occasionally whistling a merry tune.
  • Pet the Dog: Has shown his kinder side from time to time.
    • His treatment to all of his workers (sans Jared) is surprisingly kind, almost bordering on Benevolent Boss levels.
    • In "Don't Be a Negaton", after seeing how stressed out Jared is, he invites D.L. Diamond to help relax him along with all of the workers, it doesn't work when Jared finds out the truth about D.L.
    • In "Vacation", he genuinely treats everyone to a vaction in the sky with no catches or schemes in mind.
    • In "Uh Oh, It's Magic", he has a massive Friendship Moment with Jared at the end, where they forgive each other for their behaviors and even team up to stop a riot.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Enjoys constructing things that will (inadvertently) kill Superjail's inmates.
  • Repressed Memories: Implied to have repressed a lot of his abusive childhood
  • Reality Warper: While he doesn't often change things or people other than himself, the Warden has expressed abilities that qualify him as this. It's implied he didn't always have these strange powers, and may only have them within Superjail itself. He also only ever seems to use it to express himself.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: In season one, Warden was shown to be a wacky but still mostly competent. By season three however, the Warden's intelligence has dipped to an almost childlike level doing things such as: finding an imaginary creature inside his own jail or building an entire cruise ship for the prisoners to vacation on.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Relatively speaking of course. Starting on season two, The Warden has becomre far less antagonistic than before, often being depicted as a Ditzy Manchild rather than his almost insane and sadistic personality shown prior. He also treats Jared considerably better than before.. well most of the time anyways.
  • Troubled Backstory Flashback: Warden gets one once he's knocked unconscious in "Superfail". It involves his father forcing him to kill a puppy.
    • There's another one in "Burn Stoolie Burn", though it's less openly grim. Child Warden wants a pony, but his father plans to turn all the ponies into glue.
    • His worst memory in "Superhell!"? His father forcing him to pull the lever to hang a group of inmates. Complete with matching purple executioners hood.
  • Villain Protagonist: A glaring example. He's the cause of all the chaos in Superjail, the innumerable amount of deaths seen across the show, and shows little to remorse about it. It's telling that if he ever expanded Superjail, he would slowly turn into a power-hungry dictator that will take over the world.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Above all else, The Warden isn't truly evil as most would believe. He really just wants run a prison in what he thinks is the "correct" way. He's very wrong obviously, as he causes much much more bad than good, but it's all in what he believes is right.
  • The Wonka: A literal Wonka expy. The Warden is obviously completely insane, but nothing functions in Superjail without him — so much so that the place collapses in a matter of minutes when he's taken by the Time Police.

Voiced by: Teddy Cohn

The Warden's vertically challenged, neurotic, formerly alcoholic assistant. Actually, he seems to be a recovering offender of just about every addiction known to man, including smoking, drinking, sex, gambling, drugs, and more. Interestingly enough, Jared first arrived in the prison as an inmate, after formerly working for the Mafia.

  • Beleaguered Assistant: Jared only sticks with The Warden because he owes him his job. And might be attracted to him.
  • Berserk Button: Don't call him a failure, push him too far, or let him give in to the temptation of being drunk, or you'll soon be in trouble.
  • Bi the Way: On one hand, has one of the show's few stable relationships, with Ultraprison assistant Charise. On the other hand, has incredibly detailed fantasies about gaining power over and making out with the Warden.
  • Broken Bird: That is, if fifteen years of depression didn't give it away.
  • Butt-Monkey: Practically the Butt Monkey of the show. He can barely get a break without being yelled at or humiliated by his boss or Alice, beat up by inmates, or winding up succumbing to pressure and his addictions.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Later seasons have been showing his much more competent side. In "Superfail!", he manages to fight off an army of giant malicious mutants along with the Doctor. In "Uh Oh, It's Magic" he shows that he's master in magic and manages to stop a massive prison break using his magic with help from The Warden. Or in "Superstorm!", where he saves Charise's life, at the cost of being struck by lightning. He survives though.
  • Depending on the Artist: Has either blue or brown eyes in the occasional moments when he's depicted with irises. It depends on the given colorist for an episode. However, they tend to turn red when he's angered.
  • Ditzy Genius: Jared is supposed to be an intelligent man who knows his mathematics, but when trying to prove to everyone that Space Dust is a deadly substance in Negaton, the first thing he does is snort up a large dosage of the dust himself.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Although very rarely, Jared has lashed out on the Warden on three seperate occasions:
    • In "Dream Machine", he teams up with all of the other workers and prisoners to stop the Warden when he goes mad with dream power.
    • In Superfail, the Warden taunts Jared by continuously calling him a failure. This gets to the point that Jared pushes him down a massive staircase, causing a brutally long chain-reaction of the Warden being beat up before eventually getting crushed by one of the eye-towers. Jared is at first, shocked on what he has done. But rather than helping him, Jared decides to run Superjail by himself despite the Warden being heavily injured.
    • In Jean and Paul and Beefy and Alice, the Warden tries to cheat on his and Jared's mini-golf game. Jared eventually catches onto this, he crushes the Warden's hand and then whacks his crotch with a golf club!
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: He gets this treatment a lot from the Warden.
  • Eyepatch of Power: He gets one in the dystopian future.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: Is intended to have these, but sometimes an artist will goof and he'll have the standard five on each.
  • I Owe You My Life: Was actually among the first prisoners brought to Superjail, but was offered a position from the Warden, due to his analytical expertise.
  • Nervous Wreck: Constantly freaks out and is paranoid over everything. Justified though, considering how crazy and life threatening his job is.
  • Noodle Incident: Jared's entire LIFE seems to be one giant Noodle Incident. All viewers know is that he's a recovering addict (to gambling, alcohol, cocaine, and food) and was once diagnosed with clinical depression.
  • Off the Wagon: He falls off one wagon or another every few episodes - he's been revealed as The Gambling Addict, The Alcoholic...
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When angered or drugged, his irises can be seen as this color.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: possibly combined with My Brain Is Big.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Goes through this in the events of a few episodes throughout the show, and his flashbacks in "Hot Chick" indicate that his whole life before the jail was just one long line of misfortune and trauma.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: While season one has Jared being the absolute Chew Toy of the whole show, seasons two and on has him faring much more better than previously.
  • Token Good Teammate: He's the only member of the staff who (usually) isn't violently psychotic towards the inmates and tends to object to plans that may seem too immoral or cruel.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Basically sums up his whole relationship with Charise and the difficulties. He seems to finally find someone who understands him, but the two can't get together as she's dragged back to her own prison. They later attempt to keep in contact, but his attempt at getting her to help him in a disaster leads to the Mistress intercepting his call and deciding to conquer Superjail, demoting both him and the Warden to inmates in the process. The two then attempt to get their bosses to sleep together in order for the Warden to be given back power and for the jails to be united (so they themselves can get together), but that fails, double when Alice sleeps with the Mistress instead and she departs from Superjail (taking Charise with her once more). Then in the season 3 finale, Jared programmed his escape pod specifically to go to Ultraprison but was pushed out of it by Lord Stingray.

Voiced by: Christy Karacas

The muscular, transsexual prison guard. The Warden has a crush on her, though regulations prevent them from dating... not that Alice would want to, anyway.

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Regularly has her way with the violent inmates, whether they want her to or not.
  • Badass Normal: While The Warden is a Reality Warper within Superjail, Jailbot is a Walking Arsenal and Jared has mastery in magic, all Alice has is pure muscle power and the skill to use it.
  • Bi the Way: Possibly, as at the end of "Stingstress", she remarks irritably that she'd forgotten how needy women could be (when it came to sex). Although most of the time, she's clearly got her eyes on Sweet Cheeks or any inmate she'd want.
  • Boobs of Steel: Not natural ones, though. She even clarifies "These are just for show".
  • Brawn Hilda: Though a slight variation in that she didn't always have her current appearance. She ranges from being the gruff and sadistic type to having a more motherly and feminine side. Most men fear her brutality, except if they're the Warden of course.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Has demonstrated feats of strength well beyond human limits. It helps that most of the inmates are Made of Plasticine.
  • Child Hater: In the episode "Hot Chick", when the Hunter told Alice that she wanted the Twins, Alice misinterprets her as wanting to have children and replies with "Not me. I hate kids!" Note that this contradicts later episodes, where it is hinted that she wants to be a mother and shows a very caring side towards Cancer.
  • Cool Shades: Triangular cat-eye ones. They're briefly removed in "Stingstress", but she conveniently has her eyes closed.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She plays this part quite a bit, owing to her usually being blunt and to the point in her dialogue.
  • Fan Disservice: She ends up in many fanservice-y situations but her rather... distinct looks makes everyone in her vicinity to be grossed out (including the audiece).
  • Gainaxing: Her boobs have been shown to move unnaturally.
  • Irony: Invoked in her backstory. She was in love with her old warden when she was "Big Al". She began transitioning as she felt she'd found her "true self" and could finally be together with him- only to discover that said warden was a gay man. The presentation of her backstory in that way has lead to debate among fans if she truly identified as a woman or just transitioned to escape the stigma of being seen as gay.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Comes across as one of the most sociopathic, violence-loving, disgusting character. But she has her moments of kindness.
  • Mama Bear: Had shades of this when Cancer was found in the prison, being shocked to discover a child had somehow gotten in and was prepared to murder whoever was responsible for it. When she found out Ash and the inmates were taking care of her and planning a birthday party, Alice joins in on the fun and gives the girl a makeover. She's also moved to tears when Cancer dies.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The Masculine to Jared's Feminine.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Likes to think of herself as this and dress in revealing outfits from time to time, though only the Warden is pleased by what she wears.
  • One-Man Army: Is the only guard in the whole facility, and has no problems keeping things in relative order.
  • Opaque Lenses: The only time you can get a hint at her eyes is in the "Stingstress" example, or when a zombie version of her in the Warden's dream had a bit of her (red) eye revealed. Otherwise, they're entirely hidden.
  • Sunglasses at Night: And all the time.
  • Supreme Chef: Combined with a touch of Instant Expert. Turns out she can cook on a gourmet level, despite no previous experience.
  • Transgender: She's a trans woman. She herself remarks that she hasn't gotten her bulge removed. She considers her time as "Al" to have been a mere phase, and won't take anyone calling her a "dude". While Jared has mocked her at least twice on this topic, the Warden doesn't mind at all.


The jail's Do-Anything Robot. He usually starts the episode off by capturing Jacknife.

  • Absentee Actor: Aside from the intro, Jailbot does not appear in "Superstorm!".
  • Ax-Crazy: Not only does he brutally torture Jacknife after capturing him, he'll also gladly destroy every other life form in his path to do so.
  • Covert Pervert: He may seem like an innocent, childish robot, but has been spotted ogling over photos of copy machines as if they were centerfolds, as well as trying to dry-hump a vending machine (and even the space fungus) on two different occasions.
  • A Day in the Limelight
    • "Best Friends Forever", where he and Jacknife are stranded in the outer zones after their routine pick up goes wrong.
    • "Jailbot 2.0", where Jailbot (seemingly) gets too old for use and is replaced.
    • "Jean & Paul & Beefy & Alice", despite the title, Jailbot has a crucial plot where he desperately looks for someone to love.
  • Everything Is An Ipod In The Future: While not from the future, his design seems to invoke this look.
  • Friendly Enemy: With Jacknife as of "Best Friends Forever".
  • Friend to All Children: Kids seem to be his only soft spot (and even that has its limits).
  • Good Old Robot: He is considered by Nova to be a "retro" unit and does not hold the same amount of capabilities as she does. Becomes a plot point in "Jailbot 2.0" where he finally starts showing his age and limitations. The staff ultimately decide to keep him around out of genuine affection.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: After witnessing two peacocks embracing themselves in the wild, Jailbot gets obsessed with love. Unfortunately he falls in love with the space fungus and it slowly infects everyone.
  • Karmic Trickster: Whenever Jacknife does something wrong, Jailbot is sure to give his just desserts.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Lands most beings he fights into a world of hurt.
  • Pet the Dog: Jailbot sometimes rescues Jacknife from life-threatening situations during the Cold Open. Of course it's to bring him back to Superjail but he could have easily left him there for dead.
  • Robot Buddy: For the Warden.
  • The Speechless: He just has his dot matrix face and beeping noises to communicate with.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Armed with a heavy arsenal of destructive weapons to obliterate anything (and anyone) that gets in his way.
  • Transforming Mecha: He can disguise himself as just about anything, from inanimate objects to human beings and animals.
  • Walking Armory: From hammers, to axes, and even death rays. If it can kill, he's probably packing it.
  • The Worf Effect: He was practically invincible in season 1. Later season have him easily dispatched with one solid punch.

    The Doctor
Voiced by: Chris McCulloch

A Mad Scientist with a German accent, he is in charge of Superjail's scientific and technological advancements (mostly horrifying hybrids). He gets a much more prominent role in Season 2.

  • Ascended Extra: In Season 1 he only sporadically appears, he has a much bigger role in season 2, and he's a regular by season 3, hanging out with the other employees more often.
  • Badass Normal: In the season two finale, Alice and Jailbot are gone, and the Doctor, the Warden and Jared have been tied up by some of the prisoners left behind on the ship. The Doctor reveals that he was a former soldier, single-handedly kills the prisoner guarding them, takes his weapons and frees the others. They also fight a bunch of snake monsters, and when they run out of ammunition, the Doctor keeps killing the creatures with a knife, telling them to "Suck it up!"
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: In the Series Finale, he takes a suicide pill in a false tooth when believing that the lizard people are going to kill him and the staff.
  • Body Horror: His motif when it comes to his inventions is using the inmate's body parts to whatever thing he is making. Also he has nipples on his back to breastfeed his babies.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Everyone calls him the Doctor.
  • For Science!: Seems to be why he does most of the things he does.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: His glasses do all they can to hide any madness behind them.
  • Gonk: Even more so than Alice and Jared.
  • Herr Doktor: Quite obviously a German doctor.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: His creations are a strange mixture of various employees, inmates, animals, and robotic parts.
  • Pet the Dog: After seeing just how distraught Jared was when he stole Charise from him, the Doctor decided to make a frankenstein-esque clone of her to give to him. Things go bad when it turns out that the clone is kinkier than the real Charise.
  • Sixth Ranger: Was not firmly established as a main character until the second season.
  • Wild Card: He's either useful to the staff when dealing with a situation or ends up being a Spanner in the Works and makes things even worse depending on the episode.

    Lunch Ladies (Janice, Cookie, and others) 
Voiced by: Stephen Warbrick

A group of cafeteria workers that are among the minor staff. They're obsessed with using anything and everything in their recipes, even unlucky humans that may cross their path.

  • A Day In The Lime Light: "Nightshift" shares this with the Vegetable Garden.
  • Brawn Hilda: They all have the same brawny large build, and are all rough and abrasive in attitude.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Have no qualms about killing and using inmates in their dishes. The Grand Prix episode even shows they have a special room for collecting dead bodies for use in their cooking.
  • Opaque Lenses: As with Alice, you never get really get a glimpse of their eyes behind the glasses, save for a bit in "Cold-Blooded" where Janice's eye can be somewhat seen behind her shattered glasses (after the serial killer stabs her).
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Janice (the leader) appears most often, and is usually killed or mutilated in some way. Taken Up to Eleven in "Nightshift" where the entire cafeteria staff is slaughtered at the start, but later return and are shown to have even more reinforcements to fight the vegetable monsters.

Superjail Inmates

    Inmates (as a whole) 
  • Asshole Victim: Many of them honestly deserve their violent deaths.
  • Always Chaotic Evil: Frequently portrayed as violent, easily agitated, and a loose sense of reality. They're not all like this though. Downplayed after the first two seasons, where they get just a little better than before.
  • Ascended Extra: Combined with Mauve Shirt, this can happen to any of these guys when the writers favor particular designs. While an extended role sometimes means they'll be luckier in the bloodbath sequences, that's not always the case.
  • The Chew Toy: Constantly subjected to all sorts of mayhem and violence.
  • Enemy Mine: They often have to team up with the staff in order to defeat an even worse threat. How much this actually succeeds depends on the writer.
  • Institutional Apparel: The standard orange jumpsuits.
  • Living Prop: A good deal of them, justified by the fact that there are so many inmates and that most kind of have to exist as cannon fodder. If someone on the production team winds up taking a liking to certain ones, this trope winds up averted.
  • Mauve Shirt: Aside from the main recurring inmates, there are a handful inmates that prove to be more smart and at the very least, less violent than the rest of the Always Chaotic Evil inmates. They tend to survive the usual massacre/battle at the end of every episode through competency and quick-thinking.
  • Pet the Dog: They have their moments of kindness.
    • Pretty much any time they team up with the staff to defeat a bigger threat.
    • In "Mr. Grumpy-Pants", they treat Cancer as if she's their own kid and are upset when she finally passes.
    • Played extremely subtly in "Dream Machine". During the Warden's first nightmare, all the inmates brutally (and painfully) murder the staff — except for Jared, who has his neck sliced.
  • Punny Name: If any receive names, they tend to fall along this pattern.
  • Red Shirt: Often a subject to several violent experiments and mechanisms.
  • Tattooed Crooks: A number of them bear many tattoos, some of which were actual gang symbols that the writers and animators had studied and added in an attempt to make them look more realistic.
  • Those Two Guys: There's a duo of unimpressed guys that pop up every now and then. While they're not name-dropped and aren't as central as the main group of inmates through the later seasons, they tend to appear when there's an extended group.
  • Zerg Rush: The nearly endless amount of inmates that can be sent into battle proves to be useful during many episodes.
Voiced by: Christy Karacas

The repeat offender criminal who almost always gets sent to Superjail for some crime he committed or chaos he caused note .

  • All Men Are Perverts: Especially if they're Jacknife. He's been spotted as quite the lecher in a few of the opening sequences, although Jailbot will swiftly put a stop to it. He even tried to have his way with a corpse before Jailbot literally grabs him by the balls.
  • Ax-Crazy: He's clearly highly violent and unstable, and if bystanders don't fear him at first sight, they soon see what trouble he can be.
  • Badass Normal: Holds this distinction for his status as Superjail's only repeat visitor. His ability to constantly escape and survive Superjail as well as the often brutal times Jailbot recaptures him singles him out above the other inmates.
  • Butt-Monkey: Jailbot usually lands him in a world of hurt when he re-captures him at the beginning of each episode.
  • Creepy Blue Eyes: Has been consistently depicted with these, whenever the animators choose to give him irises in reaction shots (such as him being startled).
  • A Day in the Limelight
    • "Best Friends Forever", where him and Jailbot are stranded in the outer dimensions and they a form a shaky friendship.
    • "Oedipus Mess", where The Warden clones hundreds of him and they wreak havoc across the globe.
  • Freudian Excuse and Abusive Parents: The reason Jacknife is a criminal is because his father pretty much ruined his childhood by selling off his toys for booze and drugs. In the beginning of one episode, Jacknife sees a boy playing with toys in a sandbox and has a flashback of this horrible childhood event and begins crying and rushing into the sandbox so he can relive his childhood (until Jailbot drags him off to Superjail).
  • I Love the Dead: Was arrested one time for grave-robbing, and nearly having sex with a female corpse (fortunately, it was Jailbot disguised as a female corpse, so there's no Squick that happened there).
  • Iron Butt Monkey: There currently hasn't been a single time in the series where Jacknife has died on-screen, regardless of how painful his re-capturement is. However, he was implied to be killed by the vengeful spirit of his father in "Ghosts", and a Funny Background Event showed the two spirits continuing to fight throughout Limbo.
  • Jerkass: Jared wasn't kidding when he said that Jacknife is their most unruly inmate.
  • Kavorka Man: Is apparently quite a ladies' man (at least to teenage girls on the show and some loony fans in the fandom), despite being an ugly, sleazy, drug-addicted, overly-tattooed psychopath.
  • Made of Iron: He's survived abuse that would easily kill a typical Superjail character (and pretty much any real life person for that matter).
  • Me's a Crowd: Is cloned 10,000 times in "Oedipus Mess". His clones proceed to violently attack and kill each other, before attempting to escape the jail as he always does.
  • Oh, Crap!: He always has a terrified reaction right before Jailbot captures him and for good reason.
  • Pet the Dog: Despite being a total pervert and asshole, he has his very rare moments of kindness.
    • In "Best Friends Forever", he forms a friendship with Jailbot and even tries to save him from certain death.
    • In "Oedipus Mess", he can't bring himself to abandon his only son — so they break out of Superjail together.
      • During the Cold Open, he hastily rescues a batch of newborns he accidentally threw over a staircase. Keep in mind that he usually isn't above scamming children.
  • Plot-Irrelevant Villain: Jacknife rarely ever interacts with the main characters other than Jailbot. His purpose is to mainly foreshadow the events of the main plot during the Cold Open.
  • Prison Escape Artist: He is imprisoned at the start, and escapes at the end, of every episode.
  • Smarter Than You Look: The Cold Opening always shows him as a reckless, idiotic, impulsive, Ax-Crazy Jerkass — but has somehow survived through all of Superjail's chaotic schemes and is able to oustmart the staff frequently to escape.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: His father was a fat, middle-aged, balding version of him. He also winds up having an illegitimate son who already bears tattoos and his hairstyle as an infant.
  • Tattooed Crook: He sports some tattoos on his arms and hands. Some of them tend to come and go, depending on who's drawing him for a shot.
  • The Unintelligible: Only speaks in various grunts and yells. This was a compromise made between the show creator, Christy Karacas, and Cartoon Network. Originally, the entire series was supposed to have no dialogue in it (save for the occasional grunts, groans, screams, and walla), but Cartoon Network objected. Karacas decided to just make the cold openings with Jacknife committing a crime and getting caught by Jailbot dialogue-free (more or less).

    Gary and Bird

A bespectacled inmate and his bird. Or alternatively, a super-intelligent bird and his handler. The two of them are said to be at the top of the inmate food chain, with Bird being especially dangerous note 

  • A Day in the Limelight: In "Uh-Oh, It's Magic", where the two formulate a complicated plan to break out using a dummy.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Bird can be seen smoking a miniature cigarette at times, and Gary himself has been seen on a smoke break or two.
  • Mauve Shirt: Gary gets a lot more screentime in season 3, with Bird at his side as usual, even though he mostly serves to be a silent observer to the chaos and bloodbaths. Well, aside from the twist in "Uh Oh, It's Magic"
  • Organ Autonomy: His vocal chords seem to possess a sort of...possessing effect. First with The Rat, and then Prison Peedee.
  • Sinister Shades: His glasses completely obscure his eyes, and make him incredibly difficult to read. They even get a sinister glint in "Mr. Grumpy-Pants".
  • The Stoic: Aside from being silent, Gary's facial expression really doesn't change too much and he barely shows much emotion. There are a few exceptions every now and then note .
  • Vocal Dissonance: Gary's thrown voice is shrieky, shrill, and loud, contrasting with his emotionless appearance.
  • The Voiceless: Gary hasn't made a single sound in all his appearances so far. We later learn this is due to his tongue being cut out.
    • Suddenly Voiced: As Prison Peedee in "Uh-Oh, It's Magic". Rendered permanently voiceless after the Warden cuts out his vocal chords.
  • Xanatos Gambit: They pull one off in "The Last Pack".

    Jean-Baptiste Le Ghei and Paul Guaye (The Gay Inmates)
Paul (left) and Jean (right)
Voiced by: Stephen Warbrick (Jean), Chris McCulloch (Paul)

A recurring gay couple seen at the jail, and known initially as simply "The Gay Inmates" or "The Gays" (although the latter term is still used to describe them as a duo, such as in "Superjail! Grand Prix"). Paul is the more talkative and flamboyant of the two, while Jean tends to speak less and act more gruff.

  • Ascended Extra: Went from background characters to being minor characters, having at least some role in most Season 2 episodes and even two Day in the Limelight episodes (one for season 2, the other for season 3).
  • Badass Gay: Considering they used to be really deadly gang leaders, they know a thing or too about fighting and successful ways of killing.
  • Bury Your Gays: Averted, most of the time anyway. They usually manage to survive Superjail's bloodbaths.
    • Exceptions include the Warden crushing them with his foot in "Dream Machine", both being slaughtered by Jailbot at the end of "Planet Radio", and Jean appearing to be massacred with the rest of the inmates at the start of "Cold-Blooded" (he's seen alive later in the episode, anyway). There's also a bit in "Mayhem Donor" where they seem to be attacked and mutilated by the organ monster in the shower, but are later seen elsewhere at the same time, alive and well.
  • A Day in the Limelight
    • In "Gay Wedding", where their plans to get married gets shaken up by the staff.
    • In "Sticky Discharge", where Paul becomes Superjail's first parole.
    • In "Jean & Paul & Beefy & Alice", where they team up with Alice and Beefy against a Body Horror-induced space-fungus infestation.
  • Depending on the Artist: Jean used to have a swastika tattoo depicted on top of his scalp, presumably to denote him as being from the batch of white supremacist inmates (and making his relationship with Paul look ironic). Some season 2 artists downplayed its appearance, and it was gone completely by season 3 note 
  • Freudian Excuse: We learn in "Gay Wedding" that Jean was imprisoned for stabbing his father, who seemed to be unaccepting of his orientation. When Jean and his father are put in the same room once more, he wastes no time in trying to finish the old man off. In contrast, Paul seemed to have a better relationship with his parents (and according to season 3, was only imprisoned due to a drug bust).
  • Given Name Reveal: Not just their given names, but their surnames as well in "Gay Wedding".
  • Meaningful Name: Their surnames play upon their orientation.
  • No Brows: Both of them lack eyebrows.
  • No Name Given: They were nameless until "Gay Wedding". The previous episode, "Hot Chick", even simply has their names listed as "Gay" and "Gay" in their prison file. See Given Name Reveal.
  • Retired Badass: They used to be the leaders of the two deadliest gangs in Superjail, but stepped down when they fell for each other.
  • Tattooed Crook: Jean. Paul also has a few himself, although much less compared to how his lover's covered in them.
  • Those Two Guys: Originally simply functioned as this, although they've been fleshed out a little more over time.

Voiced by: Chris McCulloch
A soul-patched inmate with a New York accent. Seems to be a leader among the various inmates.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Seen reading a lot of porn over the course of seasons 2 and 3.
  • All There in the Script: His name in seasons 2 and 3.
  • Ascended Extra: Originally only appeared in "Superbar", but was upgraded to being a recurring inmate in seasons 2 and 3.
  • The Bully: He tends to bully Ash for his childish behavior.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Superbar", where he orchestrates a plan to break out of the jail using the sea gate.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Takes this role in quite the few season 3 episodes, with him having some sort of one-liner about the situation.
  • The Everyman: In comparison to the rest of inmates, he's downright normal and tends to back away from the brutal violence most of them love doing.
  • Freudian Excuse: Prior to his imprisonment, his dog was run over by a car.
  • Genre Savvy: By "The Superjail Inquisitor", he is aware of how unintentionally dangerous Ash is and refuses to let him join their schemes. He does eventually let him back in, though under heavy restriction.
  • Only Sane Man: Compared to some of the other inmates, he's one of the most level-headed characters in the show.
  • The Leader: When there's a scheme to escape, he's usually at the head of it.

Voiced by: Chris McCulloch

An inmate who has extensive burns all over his body.

  • All There in the Script: This was the case with his name at first in season 1, with him being one of the rare named inmates but it never being spoken until the following season.

  • Friend to All Children: He becomes instantly attached to Cancer.
  • Given Name Reveal: Name is first shown in "Hot Chick" in the inmate files, and spoken aloud by Jean and Paul in "The Budding of the Warbuxx".
  • Manchild: Of a far more innocent variety than The Warden. He loves ponies, playing with children, and is generally portrayed more vulnerably than anyone else in Superjail.
  • Mauve Shirt: Becomes much more prominent in seasons 2 and 3.
  • Meaningful Name: Ash, like black ash from fire. His surname is even later revealed to be "Firin".
  • No Brows: Due to the fact that his face is horribly burnt and deformed.
  • Papa Bear: When a fellow inmate wants to burn Cancer, he promptly shoves him into the fire.
  • Playing with Fire: Has the ability to control flames and even disappear in a flash of fire.
  • Troubled Backstory Flashback: Gets one in "The Budding of the Warbuxx", where we learn his movie fear and see how he wound up disfigured. There's another in "Burn Stoolie Burn" which reveals that he's inadvertantly caused death and destruction to others due to his fire powers being triggered by intense emotions (especially happiness).
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Movies. He has a fear of them due to having been left in a burning theater as a child.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He was heavily implied to be imprisoned for arson. The man likes his fire.

    Lord Stingray
Voiced by: Eric Bauza

A supervillain who wound up stranded at the Superjail island after his headquarters was destroyed. He attempted to take over the jail, but was foiled and imprisoned as an inmate as punishment. He'll do all he can to try to upstage the Warden.

Voiced by: Stephen Warbrick

A fat, lecherous inmate with a high voice. Gets killed a lot.

  • Anything That Moves: Has flirted and made sexual advances on both men and women, and even creatures within the jail that he thinks of as kids. Part of why Jared became Warden's assistant was to avoid this guy's interest in him as well.
  • The Chew Toy: Is often subjected to mutilation and humiliation, usually as consequence for him being a pervert or pissing off the others for different reasons.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Shares a notable subplot in "Planet Radio" where he rallies the inmates to rescue Jailbot.
  • Eye Scream: In "Ladies' Night" and "Superstorm!".
  • Fat Bastard: Of the pathetic and obnoxious type, though he's also shown to be quite greedy with food.
  • Freudian Excuse: In "Superhell", when he thinks of his worst memory to return Superjail to normal, it is implied that he was molested by a clown when he was a child.
  • Gonk: Though a lot of the inmates can sport a degree of this, the artists do all they can to emphasize how gross and unappealing this particular one is in the visual department as well. Obese, balding, hairy, and sporting a large nose that he can be often seen picking.
  • Groin Attack: Whether he's killed or not, he also tends to suffer this. In his very first appearance, he hits on Gary, causing Bird to rip out his testicles offscreen.
    • Alice also gives his groin a good pounding in "Terrorarium", after quickly figuring out what he'd stuffed inside his "mystery box" at the science fair.
    • He gets slaughtered in "Mayhem Donor" via the Doctor's organ monster grabbing him by the genitals and pulling him through the shower drain.
    • Jailbot stabs him in the crotch at the end of "Planet Radio", proceeding to slit and tear his body apart before moving on to kill other inmates.
  • Manchild: Of a very unsettling variety.
  • Pædo Hunt: It's revealed that he's a pedophile in "Superjail Grand Prix".
  • They Killed Kenny Again: He dies in many episodes as a running gag but always comes back in the next one, or even within the episode:
    • Managed to die during "Combaticus" and was seen alive again a shot later in the crowd, and also in the same crowd stock footage that played during his death scene.
    • Was decapitated in "Terrorarium", but returned in a later scene to obsess over Gary's dirty underwear.
    • Was disemboweled and slit open in "Nightshift" when hungry inmates wanted to retrieve burgers from his guts. He later on winds up set on fire by Ash's breath during a banquent dinner, due to Ash being unable to handle the taste of the meal.
    • Gets attacked by various sea creatures in "The Superjail Inquisitor". He dies again when he is ripped in half while using the toilet.

Voiced by: Chris McCulloch

A Middle-Eastern inmate seen among the recurring batch.

  • All There in the Script: His script name was not known until a season 4 interview and Chris McCulloch's own IMDB listing, in which he's simply referred to as "Turban". His name can also be seen as this in rough thumbnails for a season 3 storyboard.
  • Badass Beard: Spots a real thick dark one (the length of which varies).
  • A Day in the Limelight: In "The Last Pack", where he builds a secret smoking factory.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Shown with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth a lot.
  • Humble Goal: His divine purpose? Opening a falafel stand.
  • Only Sane Man: Aside from his smoking addiction, Turban is quite the sane inmate.
  • Punny Name: Guess what he wears on his head?
  • Sunglasses at Night: Never really spotted without his shades, though we do get to see his eyes briefly in his debut in "Superbar".

    "Sweet Cheeks" (Beefy)
Voiced by: Stephen Warbrick

Alice's "boyfriend"- or more accurately, a particular inmate that she's been obsessed with since the events of "Superbar". He's often her unwilling slave and tormented by her.

    Starving Inmate (aka "Skinny")
Voiced by: Chris McCulloch

A severely emaciated, gray-skinned inmate that's constantly starving. He can't get much of a break.

  • A Day In The Lime Light: "Nightshift", where The Warden puts him on death row and gives him his last meal. He doesn't die, thankfully enough, but he doesn't get to eat still.
  • Butt-Monkey: Alice torments him with a sandwich in his very first appearance and makes him dress in drag. He still doesn't get the sandwich. In "Nightshift", he's made the test subject of an electric chair and tries and fails to get a taste of various foods.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Doesn't mind trying to eat the mystery meat, as it's all food to him. He's then implied to have dismembered and eaten a cellmate in a season 3 cameo note 
  • Nothing but Skin and Bones: Very literally in his case.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: He does manage to get food at least once, during the Grand Prix race courtesy of Turban driving a falafel truck.
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice had less of a groan to it in his first appearance, and was a bit softer-pitched.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: In Series Finale, The Superjail Six there is a Flashback Skinny(The starving Inmate) is revealed to be 66 Years old on his cake during his birthday however due The Events of the Superjail Six and the staff wanting the Warden to forget about his Six Failures Alice takes the cake away while Skinny is blowing out the candle making him starve to death and he never got to it.

    "Special Needs" Inmates 
Voiced by: Tunde Adebimpe (Leader), Chris McCulloch (Bagpipe)

A group of inmates that were disfigured through various accidents at the jail. They're first mentioned by Jean in "Sticky Discharge" and later appear in their own spotlight episode.

  • Continuity Nod: One of them is actually an inmate from season 2's "Mayhem Donor", who had half his face ripped off (and then sewn on to Jared's). The other half of his face is soon sliced off by Gary.
  • No Name Given: A bunch of them are given their own pun-based names (based off their appearances), but the armless leader of the bunch never has his name spoken within the episode. It's currently unknown if he has one.
  • Non-Action Guys They gave up their violent ways and attempted to be this, in order to not repeat the tragedies that befell them before. As to be expected, it didn't go so well when they got re-introduced to the other inmates.
  • Handicapped Badass: They can fight really well in spite of their injuries, although they're still outmatched by Alice.
  • The Leader: The armless inmate.
  • Punny Name: Among the group, there's "Guns" note , "Bagpipe" note , and "Slim" note .
  • Red Shirt: Very much so, as with the other inmates.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Guns dies with the rest of the bunch in their debut episode, but is notably brought out for another fight sequence in the episode afterwards.
  • You Don't Look Like You: In their cameo appearance in "Sticky Discharge", Guns and another inmate looked the same while Slim was depicted as a balding, middle-aged man with long gray hair. In his formal debut, his design was modified to be a younger, blond man.

    Prison Peedee/The Rat
Voiced by: Dana Snyder

A ventriloquist's dummy that was used by the Warden for his magic act. However, the dummy soon seems to take a mind of his own with a little bit of help from Gary and Bird. Was also formerly The Rat.

  • Alliterative Name: Though usually just referred to as "Peedee", as well.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Him and Stingray escape Superjail by the final episode.
  • Demonic Dummy: The show wants you to think he's this, before revealing that he's simply Bird's puppet. After The Rat loses Gary's vocal cords, though, Peedee plays this trope straight.
  • Enemy Mine: Despite squabbling and fighting with Stingray, the two frequently team up.
  • No Indoor Voice: Yells practically every line he speaks.
  • Offscreen Karma: Sometime between "Planet Radio" and "Burn Stoolie Burn", he was incarcerated.
  • Organ Autonomy: Is brought back to life and powered by Gary's disembodied vocal cords, after they're separated from The Rat.
  • Tuckerization: His name is based off one of the producers', Peedee Shindell. He's also visually modeled after him, down to the haircut.
  • Verbal Tic: Prone to calling people (Mostly Stingray) "Dumbass".

    Monster Convict 
A serial killer who loves to fashion his victim's skin into furniture. He was mistaken to be Jacknife by Jailbot. Dreaded over the inmates, making The Warden jealous.

An inmate who grew to a giant thanks to the Warden's growth serum.


    The Twins
Voiced by: Richard Mather

Creepy Twins whose sole purpose appears to be to cause as much havoc as possible inside the jail for their own amusement, sabotaging everything the Warden cooks up. note 

  • Alien Blood: They're shown to have bright green blood.
  • Aliens Speaking English: Unlike their father and Hunter, we don't really ever hear them communicate in any language other than standard English.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: And it runs in their family.
  • Ascended Extra: They had their brief moments in Season One, but soon had their own focus episodes.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Their blood is a luminescent green, for one.
  • Characterization Marches On: They act more humanlike as the show goes on.
  • Creepy Monotone: Their default manner of speaking. They rarely show much emotional range, except when they're incredibly angered or frightened.
  • Creepy Twins: Although the exact range of said creepiness depends on the episode.
  • The Dividual: There is literally nothing that makes them different from each other.
  • Finishing Each Other's Sentences: Mixed with a bit of Twin Banter.
  • Freudian Excuse: They may act smart-assed to their father in "Hot Chick", but they're actually terrified of him and of their elder brothers, who they've been bullied by since birth. It seems rather than violently conquer others or live up to their father's high standards, they'd rather just live at the jail and "play around" with others (even if it results in inmates' incredibly violent deaths).
  • Human Aliens: First time viewers may be shocked that the Twins are not human. Their family subvert this however.
  • Humiliation Conga: Although they usually come off on top in their schemes, lying to their elder brothers about conquering Earth and attempting to keep up the lie just put them through one form of humiliation after the other throughout "The Trouble with Triples".
  • It Amused Me: Their motivation for stirring up trouble in Superjail. It's all just a game to them.
  • Karma Houdini: They usually to get away with their mayhem due to their alien abilities making them practically untouchable.
  • Lack of Empathy: They just don't really care about anyone else but themselves. When they do actually interact with someone else, it's only to further their own goals and they show no concern for the other person.
    • When they do actually show a brief interest in "friends" (ie: Jacknife's clones), they still are shown to only care about themselves and don't actually interact with the others, though they then act annoyed about their apparent friends not paying attention to them.
    • It seems like they felt sorry for Jailbot when he was forced to guard a spa 24/7 all by himself — but they use him to further their chaotic plans.
  • Leitmotif: The two are represented by a techno beat when they appear. However, it is not used for every appearance, especially within episodes that have the two in an extended role (such as their focus episodes, in which the beat is only used in their initial scene note ). Some episodes also feature a different techno beat to introduce them, such as the skating sequence in "Combaticus".
  • Out of Focus: For a time in season 2, aside from their two focus episodes. They were also downplayed in the first half of season 3, but would have two other episodes centered around them.
  • Pac-Man Fever: All the video games that they are shown playing have no better than 8-bit graphics.
  • Power Crystals: Used at points in season 3, especially in their costuming.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: A less cowardly and more Troll-ish example. The Twins usually teleport away from any mayhem they have just caused, intentionally letting any poor bystander to suffer the consequences of it.
  • Single-Minded Twins: It's very rare for them to act separately, or for one to differ in viewpoint and demeanor from his brother. The notable exception would be their budding situation.
  • Spock Speak: Mixed with the occasional Sophisticated as Hell.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: Teleportation is their most frequently used superpower.
  • Think Twins: It takes two strange minds as theirs to come up with all the chaos, after all.
  • Trickster Twins: Their main purpose when they're in the jail. When they do rarely interact with others, they're not above using manipulation and tricks to try to get something out of it for themselves.
  • The Unfavourites: They're seen as this in their fathers' eyes, when compared to their older brothers. Still doesn't stop him from taking them home to become Supreme Overlords of his space empire, and didn't deter his previous attempt of trying to have Hunter bring them home.
  • Vocal Evolution: Their inflections sound a little less stilted after Season 1, as they become a more emotive.
  • Wonder Twin Powers: They do everything together and hate the idea of being separated. It's not wise to try to force them apart.

    The Vegetable Garden 
Voiced by: Stephen Warbrick

Superjail's vegetable garden is full of sentient veggies just wanting to be loved and eaten. But they're prone to jealousy and paranoia, as well as dying all too easily.

  • A Day In The Lime Light: "Nightshift" shares this with the Lunch Ladies.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: Comprised of talking carrots, tomatoes, and so on. They're usually hanging around the garden, but have attempted to leave it (only to fail).
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: They become giant monsters in "Nightshift" and have to be fought off by the combined forces of the inmates and the lunch ladies.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: More like: "I Just Want To Be Eaten", but still acts the same. They're frequently under the belief that no one wants to eat them and will go through desperate measures to do so.
  • Let's Meet the Meat: Or "Let's Meet The Talking Vegetables" in this case. They're aware they exist to be planted and eaten, and get distressed in the pilot when they hear that they won't go to use (and simply get mowed over by Jailbot).
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The entire last two minutes of "Nightshift" has them growing in size and causing chaos all around Superjail, killing thousands of inmates. All because no one wanted to eat them.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: They have the biggest potty mouths in the show.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: With being just a bunch of vegetables, they're not even spared from the carnage. They wind up mowed down in their first appearance, get killed by giant weed monsters in their second, and are subject to more death and mutilation in subsequent roles.

Voiced by: Richard Mather note 

A genetically-engineered superhuman clone of the Twins, who had amazing super-strength and agility.

  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Lives on in the form of a constellation above the jail, and seems to like smiting flocks of birds.
  • Back from the Dead: Temporarily, due to a paradox created in "Time Police part 2". After the timeline is reset, however, his proper fate is sealed.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: Prefers fighting completely naked, but notably doesn't have any genitalia or nipples (although Karacas' own depiction on the season 1 poster artwork did have the latter feature).
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: His genetic enhancements as a clone give him a vast amount of strength and speed, to where it takes little effort for him to tear an inmate apart. The only being that posed a challenge would seem to be Specimen 7 (due to its healing factor).
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He helps save the trapped and injured Twins (who manage to teleport away), but winds up instantly crushed to death himself by falling debris.
    • Technically sacrifices himself AGAIN when he destroys the Time Brain, seemingly resetting the timeline to the events before the "Time Police" plot (and so he goes back to his proper fate).
  • Monochromatic Eyes: He appears to have solid white eyes, but is clearly able to see through them. However, Christy Karacas' artwork for the season 1 poster and DVD depicts the eyes as a solid blue.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: As his first unlucky victim notes, he's a "Pipsqueak". Said yutz winds up dead a few seconds later.
  • Spare Body Parts: Specifically crafted and born with four hearts to increase his speed and metabolism. He also has a twelve pack abdomen, and fourteen fingers and toes.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: Is first briefly shown to have a teleportation power like the Twins, but prefers fighting physically.
  • Ultimate Life Form: Seemingly so. Unfortunately for him, he's not entirely invulnerable and the Made of Plasticine rule still applies to him.
  • The Voiceless: Never utters a word when he's alive, except for grunting a little when he saves the Twins. However, his constellation self does give the final spoken line of the episode.
  • Younger Than They Look: Owing to him being a clone, he was technically a newborn but appeared to be a teenager and slightly younger than his genetic donors.
    Cancer (San-ser)
Click here to see here appearance from season 2 and onward 
Voiced by: Kamala Sankaram

A four-year-old who gets accidentally taken to Superjail. Her name is Cancer because the inmates of Superjail mistake the word "CANCER" on her bracelet for her name. Once she passed away, her ghost resides around the jail.

  • Black Bead Eyes: Sports these types of eyes, as with other small children depicted.
  • Blood from the Mouth: The sign of her impending death that everyone remains clueless to.
  • The Bus Came Back: After two camoes in the second season, she finally makes an actual appearance in "Superhell!" where she returns as a Living Memory and helps save Ash and all the inmates from the demons during the climax.
  • Cute Ghost Girl: Seen as this in two cameos in the second season.
  • Hair Decorations: A butterfly hair clip (sometimes two of them).
  • Incurable Cough of Death: Gets weaker throughout her appearance and displays this.
  • Kill the Cutie: Showing that even children aren't spared within the jail, though for her, it was not through any carnage but her own terminal illness. That, and her death being hastened by the boxes crushing her.
  • Littlest Cancer Patient: But nobody knows that she has the disease.
  • Magic Skirt: Shown when Jailbot is taking her to the incinerator.
  • Morality Pet: For most of the inmates, but especially Ash, who practically mothered her until her death in "Mr. Grumpy-Pants" and is seen playing with her ghost during the carnage in "Ghosts" (as well as in a cameo in "Mayhem Donor").
  • The Quiet One: Speaks a grand total of 3 words onscreen before she croaks.
  • Youthful Freckles: Sports these.
A weather-controlling robot that the Warden invented to cheat in a three-legged race.
    Space Fungus
"Someone pee-peed in the humans' gene pool."
A strange alien fungus that displays human features. The Twins introduce it to Jailbot as his lover and it begins to infect everyone across the compound.
  • Alien Kudzu: It begins to implant itself all over the walls and grounds of the jail.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: It manages to infect everyone in the end and it's highly implied that the staff is either gonna die from the oncoming hord of infected inmates or they will suffer the same fate as the inmates.
  • Body Horror: Dear lord it sure does play this trope to the highest possible level.
  • Monster of the Week: Of "Jean & Paul & Beefy & Alice". Though it makes a small cameo in the next episode.
    The World's Strongest Cockroach 
A science experiment created by the Gay Couple. Quite literally becomes the world's strongest cockroach when it accidentally ingests a bit of The Warden's growth serum.

How well does it match the trope?
