The Supernoobs

    Tyler Bowman 
Voiced by: Matt Hill

A 12 year old boy who is the self proclaimed leader of the Noobs. He lives with his single mother and has been known for being the most responsible member of the group. He desires to lead the group and clean up any of the messes that are going on, even messes that he ends up creating. He also has a huge crush on classmate Amy Anderson but this distracts him from his leadership and he is very shy in confessing his feeling to her. He carries the blue battle ball. His battle ball powers include teleportation, mind reading, and eventually mind control.

  • Adorkable: His likable personality, intelligence, and leadership roles make him this.
  • Big Damn Heroes: When Amy is cornered by a virus dragon, Tyler jumps right in to saver her.
  • Can't Spit It Out: When it comes to his crush, Amy Anderson.
  • Disappeared Dad: Tyler's dad is never seen or mentioned once in the show, which implies that his mom is either a single mother, divorced, or widowed.
  • The Leader: Tyler considers himself to be the de facto leader of the noobs and shows this through good leadership skills. He also considers himself to be the moral compass of the group
  • Only Sane Man: Can be this to other members of the team at times although Shope can take on this role as well.
  • Psychic Powers: The blue battle Ball grants him a few of these.
    • Telepathy: He can read minds and sense the presences of others.
    • Mind Control: He can practice this to an extent.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Tyler is implied to be this as he is shown with a huge collection of stuffed animals in his basement, including a teddy bear which he lets Zenblock have. He also got a craving to play candy mama after getting rid of his battlenutz 4 urge by fighting virus infected squirrels.
  • Space Cop: At least one in training. He is a virus warrior and mostly protects Earth from virus infestations although he does this job in space too.
  • Sudden Name Change: In the "Noob Vs. Venamus 12" episode, Tyler is referred to as Tyler Knight/Night instead of Tyler Bowman. It is unknown why this change in Tyler's last name happened, though it could have been an error in production
  • Super Senses: His Blue Battle Ball is said to heighten the host's 9 senses.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: One of Tyler's primary battle ball abilities.

    Kevin Reynolds 
Voiced by: Richard Ian Cox

Kevin is Tyler's carefree and washed up best friend. He is the most selfish and least intelligent member of the group as he often abuses his battle ball for his own amusement and personal gain. He also has the tendency to make poor decisions that get the group into trouble. He often flees from the advances of fellow schoolmate Jessie, who has an obsessive one sided crush on him. Kevin carries the red battle ball. His powers include self transfiguration into animals and objects and he can combine multiple animal parts together to make unique combinations that he can transform into. His battle ball also allows him to talk to animals as well.

  • Aesop Amnesia: Kevin does learn lessons about responsibility and altruism in several episodes but he seems to have a hard time remembering them.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Kevin is most likely bi as he seemingly had a crush on the Incredibly Amazing Man while stating that he was his #1 fan and went as far as making a marriage like proposal to be his sidekick but this apparent crush seems to be a bit like hero worship. What puts him in this territory instead of Ambiguously Gay is his hesitance in hitting girls and his implied crush on Shope as while under the influence of Mr. Wertz's mind control goggles, he stated that he wanted to marry Shope someday.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Not to the same extent as Shope, but he's much more tan than Tyler and Roach and has curly black hair. Fandom likes to think that he's mixed race.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Kevin briefly became this after succeeding in becoming The Incredibly Amazing Man's sidekick although Kevin's role in this was restricted to just helping the Incredibly Amazing Man sell merchandise to other people.
  • The Lancer: Trades this role with Shope.
  • Butt-Monkey: Everyone takes their fair share of slapstick abuse, but Kevin in particular suffers the worst of it.
  • Captain Crash: When he's behind the wheel of anything, expect it to be driven like a bumper car. Shown when he tries to drive the Galacticus and in the end of the episode, frames Mem and Zen for traffic violations while inadvertently wrecking their ship to smithereens.
  • Catchphrase: "Battleballs In!"
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He has his moments, like in "Noobies Vs Smoothies," where he talked about how nobody really needs underwear flaps.
  • Hypocrite: He tried to cancel Mem and Zen's planned TV show out of fear of keeping his and the noobs identities being revealed yet in "Eyewitness Noobs" Kevin was revealed to have not only been running the main website of the Noobs but has also been sending videos of himself and the noob to a tabloid magazine for money and he almost compromised the noob identities to the tabloid company by accident.
  • Idiot Houdini: Kevin has the tendency to make poor decisions and usually never has to answer to them. He once accidentally blew up the school gym with his battle ball but never got expelled or suspended from school for it. Other idiotic things he got away with were almost destroying Earth by accident and selling images of himself and the Noobs without their battlesuits to Marty Soulpatch.
    • Laser-Guided Karma: Season 2 finally addresses this with Kevin getting some much needed Karma backlash. cheating to get a type of 'employee of the month' lands him into fighting a super dangerous virus beast. Trying to use a preserve cyber-virus for some in-game fun, force to clean up the mess while the other get to train (Aka play go-karts.)
  • Invisible Parents: Kevin's parents have taken the longest amount of time to make an onscreen appearance. It's subverted later on, as his dad finally made an appearance in a later episode. His mom has not yet made an appearance on the show but she has been mentioned more than once.
  • It's All About Me: Kevin's main flaw is selfishness. He is seen is the most selfish out of all the Noobs and frequently abuses his own battle ball powers for personal gain. This flaw is what makes Memnock and Zenblock perceive the Noobs as just a bunch of bratty kids who only care about themselves. Kevin does try to overcome this flaw but he is obviously struggling.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Its obvious that Kevin still has a lot of growing up to do. He can be selfish and rude at times towards the other Noobs and other people, but he is committed to stopping the virus.
  • Large Ham: He overreacts a lot.
  • Shapeshifting: The Red Battle Ball's power.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Kevin once pressed a wrong button on Mem and Zen's ship by accident, which caused a meteor like drone to be sent out which had the capability of destroying planets including Earth. However Kevin was able to stop the drone at the last second
  • Plot Allergy: Kevin is revealed to be allergic to shellfish at some point in the first season as he broke out in hives when fighting a virus infected crustacean.
  • Right Behind Me: Seems to be an expert at guessing when something's behind him.
  • Running Gag: Kevin frequently turns into a possum or some other rodent rather than the animal he actually wants.
  • Shapeshifter Mode Lock: If he stays in an animal form for longer than three hours without his battle ball, his DNA will be permanently altered, and he will be stuck in that form forever. This has happened to him once when he transformed into a bulldog but he managed to change back before the three hour mark was up.
  • Ship Tease: With Shope, as he blurts out under mind control that he wants to marry her.
  • Space Cop: At least one in training. He is a virus warrior and is tasked with protecting the universe from The Virus.
  • Spoiled Brat: Kevin is seen as the most selfish member of the team as he frequently abuses his battle ball powers for personal gain such as money and fame. He even demands things from Mem and Zen as well.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: Whenever he overreacts or something gets on his nerves.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: The Red Battle Ball carries the risk of malfunctioning and turning the user evil; Kevin's evil alter ego is named Invicticus.

    Jennifer Shope 

She is the only female member of the Noobs and considers herself to be the most intelligent member of the group. She tries her hardest to please her parents, whose trust in her was shown to be diminishing as they once threatened to send her to boarding school. She does not like to get F's on any of her tests and projects. She can also be irritated by Memnock and Zenblock's immature and childish behavior but she does desire to have them adapt to Earth culture to the best of their abilities. She possesses the purple battle ball. Her powers include manipulation of the elements and the weather including lightning, tornadoes, and water.

  • Ambiguously Brown: She has brown skin, but her ethnicity remains unknown until we see her parents in "Who, What, Where and Noob". She has a black father and a Brazilian mother.
  • Berserk Button: Triceratops being mocked in any way.
  • Black and Nerdy: She's half-black and the smartest of the Noobs.
  • Brainy Brunette: She's The Smart Girl and has hair that's either very dark brown or black.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She can snark pretty hard.
  • Elemental Powers: Her Purple Battle Ball lets her control the surrounding natural forces.
  • Energy Absorption: One of her powers. Some examples include absorbing laser blasts and redirecting them back, and one time she accidentally takes the space ship Galacticus' cloaking ability.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears a pink headband.
  • Insufferable Genius: Shope is almost always right in any given situation and with such a huge amount of intelligence and wisdom comes a huge ego. Because of this, Shope's own pride and arrogance is her primary heroic flaw.
  • Intelligence Equals Isolation: "A Noob Hope" established that her intelligence intimidates most kids her age, hence why she only had three friends until she met Memnock and Zenblock.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being an arrogant genius, Shope's heart is mostly in the right place as she tries her best to stop the virus and fight bad guys.
  • Large Ham: Despite being very smart and good at processing situations she does overreact sometimes. It's mostly seen when fighting the virus or when she gets frustrated with immature and incompetent behavior coming from either Kevin or Memnock and Zenblock.
  • Last-Name Basis: Her friends call her by her family name. Only her parents call her by her first name.
  • Meganekko
  • Mixed Ancestry: Brazilian on her mother's side and Angolan on her father's.
  • Nerdy Nasalness: She's an archetypical Nerd with a high-pitched, adenoidal voice.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Her science project for the science fair made it possible for non-living objects to be infected with the virus, which causes damage to the school and destroys everyone else's projects except Roach's. Luckily she was able to fix her project's destructive tendencies.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Has purple hair in battle mode and wears a purple sweater too.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: Despite being a girl, Shope gets her fair share of abuse and getting beaten up a lot. Her job as a virus warrior often exposes her to the possibility of getting injured.
  • The Smart Girl: Trades this role with Kevin.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: She's The Smart Girl of the cast of main characters and wears red-framed glasses.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only girl on the team. She actually lampshades this in "The Noobs Meet Count Venamus," talking to a quartet of female Virus Warriors about how the others often focus on male-orientated topics like video games.
  • Space Cop: At least one in training because she's a virus warrior. She is tasked with protecting the universe from the virus.
  • Sweater Girl: She's always seen wearing a purple argyle sweater.
  • Tomboy: Shope is clearly one as she is a girl but loves science, football, video games including shooters, and sci-fi movies. She also refused Memnock's joke offer to put a tiara on her costume and battlesuit despite being a girl.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She's definitely a Tomboy, but she regularly wears a headband and a pair of tights/leggings that are colored pink. Her regular outfit also includes a skirt.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Shope in "How To Care For Your Noob" forces Kevin into a gerbil when she and Tyler lose theirs in a science project. She forces Kevin to do humiliating things in gerbil form so she would get an A on her project. Unfortunately, she and Tyler get an F in the end despite Tyler successfully capturing the original gerbil. She started out as an all right smart girl but she develops into being overly prideful and selfish ever since she received her battle ball. Its implied that becoming a virus warrior has caused Shope's own pride to swell up.
  • Twofer Token Minority: Not only is she the only girl, she's also the only visibly non-white member of the Noobs.

    Theodore "The Roach" Roachmont 
Voiced by: Lee Tockar

The most laid back and gullible member of the group who is well known for the hair that covers his eyes. He does seem to be bumbling but does have a lot of wisdom in him, which the noobs rely on when they need it most. However, he often feels that the Noobs constantly take advantage of him. He goofs off a lot and can be a bad influence towards Memnock and Zenblock engage in childish behavior. He is also known to constantly flirt with women who are older than he is including XR4Ti,his school play director, and an alien princess. He possesses the green battle ball. His powers include super strength and body manipulation.

  • Adorkable: Roach fits in this trope due to his easy going nature, short height, and hair that covers the upper half of his face.
  • Blinding Bangs: His eyes are completely concealed by his hair.
  • The Chick
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Not as bad as Kevin, but it's there.
  • Flying Brick: His Green Battle Ball gives him Flight, Super Strength and change the size of his fist.
  • Gonk: When compared to everyone else.
  • Hammerspace Hair: He and his friends often keep stuff in his hair, like their Battle Balls.
  • Hidden Depths: "How to Care For Your Noob" shows that he has a talent for wood carving, creating a sculpture of a rabbit in no time flat.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: His unique hairstyle and easy going personality is an attractor factor for kids.
  • Likes Older Women: He has had crushes on his drama teacher and an alien princess, as well as XR4Ti, who has the voice of an adult woman. Count Venamus uses this trope against him at one point in order to kidnap him.
  • Nice Guy: Easily the nicest and most easy-going of the group.
  • Prehensile Hair: Roach's hair is capable of storing things including battle balls. He temporarily gets the power manipulate his hair into two large fists after drinking a substance containing a form of the virus that was modified by Mr. Wertz.
  • Space Cop: At least one in training. He is a virus warrior like his friends are.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Zigzagged. While he looks NOTHING like his parents (Something the other noobs noted) he does bear a striking resemblance to his grandmother.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: The Green Battle Ball carries the risk of malfunctioning and turning the user evil; Roach's evil alter ego is named Destroyon.
  • Super Speed: Another power of the Green Battle Ball.
  • Youthful Freckles

The Benevolent Alliance

    Memnock and Zenblock 
Voiced by: Bill Mondy (Memnock) Michael Adamthwaite (Zenblock)

They are two alien warriors who were sent to earth to find warriors to aid the Benevolent Alliance in their war against the virus. However they screw up in their objective and mistake the Noobs for warriors and give them the battle balls. They try to correct their mistake but end up being forced to tutor them and live on Earth as roommates in a single house. However, both of them do care about the noobs and try to protect them from any harm whenever possible. Zenblock is a blue colored alien who is aggressive, gruff, and sarcastic as he is frequently annoyed by any irresponsible antics the Noobs and Memnock engage in. Memnock on the other hand is a foil to Zen as he is a yellowish-green colored alien who is eccentric, kind, soft spoken, sensitive, and caring to other people and the noobs. They can be very immature and childish at times mostly due to their lack of understanding of Earth culture, which they have a childlike fascination in. To top that all off, the duo are also very dysfunctional and show many signs of incompetence in their job. They are also considered to be the 5th and 6th members of the noobs due to their affiliation with them. They both possess green Battleballs. Their powers are super strength, flight, transfiguration, body manipulation, natural water breathing, and teleportation.

  • 24-Hour Armor: Memnock and Zennlock are mostly seen just wearing their armor and their bob and rob disguises are just projections from their battle balls, meaning that their true forms are technically still wearing it. Whenever they have to change costume, they just wear it over their armor, including pajamas.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Both Mem and Zen's Battleballs are capable of using the powers of all the colored Battle balls except Shope's. However, the downside to this is that Mem and Zen can each only use one power at a time with their battle balls and they can't manipulate the weather. They do seem to have the unique power to breathe underwater, which is most likely from their natural bodies rather than the battle balls.
  • Bad Liar: Memnock has the habit of telling lies when under pressure as he lied about oversleeping to his superior officer after being startled by an alarm and he tells some tourists about his ship being an ice cream store and making it over into such to avoid having his and Zen's identities get busted.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Memnock has at least four of these even though he is very nice. Just don't insult him or his cooking or fart at him. Also don't negatively compare him to a bug. Zenblock had to learn this the hard way when he set all four of those buttons off. Also don't annoy or embarrass Mem in any way as the Noobs constantly do but Meme often shows frustration and slight agitation when that button is pressed.
    • Zenblock, despite having the tendency to lose his temper at the drop of a hat, has a couple of buttons that when pressed really tick him off. The first one is that his beauty sleep should never be rudely disrupted unless the disruption is from his superiors or for an important reason as Memnock accidentally set that one off in one point. The second one is that he should never be screwed over or fall victim to any form of embarrassment.
    • Both of them share the same button that reads "do not betray or double-cross them in any way". When Venamus pressed this button, they sent him to drift into space alone in a single sphere.
    • Having the duo wait for very long periods of time, especially when put on hold in a phoneline, causes both of them to go crazy.
  • The Big Guys: Both of them due to their large size in alien form. Zenblock is a class 1 form of this with elements of class 2. Memnock is definitely a class 2.
  • Brutal Honesty: The two are never shy on voicing the Noobs short comings. However, Zen did try to sugarcoat one of his criticisms once until Tyler told him not to.
  • Butt-Monkey: Like many of the characters on the show, Men and Zen have their fair share of being beaten up and dragged around like chew toys. They beat each other up occasionally, survive numerous ship and train crashes, and a bunch of kids trampled over them in a museum. They also fell victim to a very contagious eye infection, got ticketed for traffic offenses they didn't commit, had their ship wrecked, had their briefs eaten by alien goats, got crushed by their own ship, lived in a very small and uncomfortable house as roommates, and got bullied by Rovu often. Zenblock seems to receive the worst of it out of the two.
  • By-the-Book Cop: Both of them as shown in "Count Noob-A-Nus" when they insist on treating any prisoners they arrest with fairness and kindness as stated in their Benevolent Alliance manual after they arrest Count Venamus and his minions. However, they do violate protocol to launch Venamus into space in a single pod when Venamus uses the manual to double-cross them.
  • Camp Straight: Memnock. He likes cooking and joked about putting tiaras on the Noobs, yet he and Zen were clearly shown flirting with a couple of girls in a coffee shop in " How To Use Your Noob" through attracting them with voice modulated helmets.
  • Character Development: They show the most development out of all the main characters. They were initially distrusting of the Noobs due to their experience but warm up to them over time, Their friendship was very dysfunctional in the first half of the season but their house expansion was a major turning point for them as they got to be better friends.
  • Childhood Friends: Memnock and Zenblock are heavily implied to have known each other since they were kids in "Zooper Noobs" when they both mentioned loving to ride the monorail at the space zoo at a young age. They most likely went to the space zoo together as kids or they first met at the space zoo around the monorail attraction.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: They both fit this trope, though Memnock is portrayed as a bigger one than Zenblock. It stems mostly from their ignorance of Earth culture.
  • The Chooser of The One: They're recruiters who bestow powers in the form of Battleballs to the native warriors of a planet to protect them from the Virus. On Earth, however, they mistook four children for soldiers and accidentally tasked them with the mission to protect Earth from the Virus. Neither party is satisfied with the outcome.
  • Cool Helmet: Memnock and Zenblock are never seen on the show without their helmets on (Bob and Rob forms don't count).
  • Cute Little Fangs: Memnock's mouth is full of cute little fangs!
  • Cuteness Proximity: Mem and Zen just cannot resist the cuteness of adorable puppies whether they are real or plush. Also they really seemed attracted to the cuteness of the female Candy Mama characters.
  • Cynical Mentor: Mem and Zen are mostly just recruiters sent to find champions on planets to defend them from the virus, after which they move on. They're both Good Is Not Nice in this regard and are rather bitter at being forced by their bosses to effectively babysit and mentor the noobs after their blundered recruitment of them. Suverted as both of them do warm up to the Noobs over time
  • Deadpan Snarker:
    • Memnock's the main snarker of the duo as shown commenting sarcastically over the Noobs screaming when in space.
  • Dressed in Layers: They have the habit of wearing clothes over their armor. Its zig zagged and played with in their case
    • Played straight whenever they are in their pajamas or other clothing
    • Parodied in "Noobsitters" when in their bob and rob disguises, they tear off their casual clothing to instantly reveal that they are wearing their workout gear under such clothing.
  • Flanderization: Starting in the second half of the second season, Mem and Zen's personalities started to get centered on their childishness and idiocy. They started out as Virus Warriors who were not to keen on training their accidental recruits and tried strenuously to prepare them to fight the virus but over time, they started to become very immature alien man children due to developing an unhealthy obsession with earth culture while starting to develop a slight candy addiction. It got to the point where Zenblock easily fell for a trap consisting of a rocket ship filled with candy.
  • For Halloween, I Am Going as Myself: The need to protect their alien identities from the public and from people like Mr. Wertz is the main reason why Mem and Zen need to go into their Bob and Rob disguises when they go out in public. However, they sometimes forget to transform into their disguises and at one point during Halloween, they decided to go trick or treating in just their alien forms with their armor on and ended up scaring everyone in the neighborhood while getting tons of candy in the process.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Zenblock has this kind of temper as the slightest annoyance or disruption in his fun time can make him explode in an angry rage.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Memnock and Zenblock are heavily implied to be this as they once slept in late until the afternoon in "Noob Kids On The Block". In fact, it is heavily implied that their apparent sleeping problems are the reason why they slept in late that episode and why they are such huge sleepers as Zenblock sleepwalks for unknown reasons while Memnock likes cooking midnight snacks until late at night.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Mem and Zen as they do give each other a hard times but they always have each others backs as their bond is implied to have been existent wince childhood. The heterosexual part of it is proven in the coffee shop scene in episode 25.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In "How To Use Your Noob" they tell the Noobs that they shouldn't use their battle balls to use as toys such as mechanical puppies or helmets that "make you sound really cool". The next scene shows Memnock and Zenblock manipulating their battle balls into such cool sounding helmets to try to attract ladies.
  • Idiot Houdini: It's clear that Memnock and Zenblock, despite being virus-hunting warriors, are not very bright in the decisions they make; this includes mistaking a group of ordinary 12-year-olds with paintball gear for soldiers, mistaking a science fair for a food convention and subsequently ruining a kid's science project, and going trick-or-treating using their own weapons to scare people into giving them items like television sets and bikes. All of these actions result from their own idiocy and ignorance, yet they are never held accountable for any of them.
  • Ironic Nickname: "Zen" is the term for a Buddhist discipline which focuses on being calm and in control of your emotions, which Zenblock clearly isn't.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Zen sometimes teases and makes fun of the Super Noobs' inexperience but when it looks like they're in over their heads with the current infected monster, he'll jump in and save the kids. He also likes to tease Memnock around but he does show empathy to Mem whenever he gets upset.
    • "Tyrannosaurus Noob" really drives this point home, with Zen admitting that he really is nice deep down.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Memnock and Zenblock's alien appearances and likeable and hilarious personalities are attraction factors for kids to watch the show as without them, the whole show would have been boring.
  • Large Ham: The both overreact a lot and its most easily seen during their childish escapades.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: Mem and Zen aren't married, dont show attraction towards each other, and are government agents from space but they bickered a lot with each other for the first half of season one but its almost nonexistent after their expansion on their house.
  • Manchild: Both Memnock and Zenblock are shown to be this, partially due to not understanding Earth culture. They often fight and behave immaturely. So far their childishness involved playing a candy themed video game for kids, riding a kids monorail ride, going trick or treating, getting stuffed puppies in a build a bear workshop knockoff store, and in Zenblock's case, sleeping with a teddy bear in his arms.
  • Not So Different: Memnock and Zenblock are shown to be just as childish, dysfunctional, and competitive as the Noobs are. In fact, they can be considered to be the 5th and 6th members of the whole team due to their behavior and willingness to fight alongside the Noobs. They seem to be mentors towards the Noobs but their mentoring looks more like symbiotic education because Mem and Zen teach the Noobs to be better virus warriors while the Noobs teach Mem and Zen how to adapt to the standards of Earth with one example being through a snowball fight.
  • One of the Kids: Memnock and Zenblock are very immature and hang out with the Noobs a lot, which often causes them to reach lower levels of immaturity. Justified as the Benevolent Alliance assigned them to train the Noobs and they often have to rely on the Noobs to help them understand Earth.
  • Police are Useless: Downplayed in Memnock and Zenblock's case. They are both technically space cops who fight an alien pathogen but they sometimes don't do their jobs like they are supposed to. They are sometimes seen goofing off while the Noobs are either tracking down or fighting the virus but they do show that they are competent when the plot demands it.
  • Real Men Can Cook: Memnock fits in this case as he and Zen would otherwise be starving. Its implied that Memnock wants to be a professional chef through his "ice cream dream" and skill with cooking eggs with coriander.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Both Mem and Zen show this trope to various degrees.
    • Zenblock is the manliest guy of the duo but he sometimes sleeps with a teddy bear in his arms and is way more hesitant with looking into more feminine aspects of Earth culture
    • Memnock is seen having some manly elements too due to his physical composition but he likes cooking a lot and more embracing on Earth cultures. Despite this, he was upset when Zenblock accidentally caused some of Memnock's socks to turn pink in the wash.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni Zenblock is the red to Memblock's blue. Ironically Zen is colored blue, while Mem is green.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Zen is the manly man to Mem's sensitive guy. Zen is seen as the more gruff and masculine of the duo while Mem serves as a passive foil to Zen as he is more sensitive and soft spoken of them.
  • Sleepwalking: Zenblock has a huge sleepwalking problem as he does a lot of karate and kung-fu moves whenever he sleepwalks. To Zen's dismay, Memnock finds this annoying and calls it "sleep fighting". The Noobs had to design a special bedroom solely designed for Zen to help with his problem.
  • Space Cops: Both Memnock and Zenblock because they are virus warriors and serve the Benevolent Alliance. Their spaceship has a section with prison pods where they detain any agents of the virus creators that they arrest. This is proven when they arrest Count Venamus and his minions in one episode.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: Zenblock falls into this whenever he gets angry (which is often).
  • Supreme Chef: Memnock qualifies under this as he is shown to make delicious egg dishes with coriander and efficiently ran an ice cream shop on his ship. What also makes him fall under this is that he is very sensitive about his hobby as he was upset after Kevin ruined his ice cream dream and when Mem became angry at Zen and moved out the house he shared with Zen as roommates after Zen yelled at him about his constant cooking until late at night.
  • Sweet Tooth: Memnock and Zenblock both have a huge craving for candy. They love eating candy as they went trick or treating and they love doing anything candy related as they played Candy Mama and Mem opened an ice cream shop on his spaceship, which shows that he has a bigger sweet tooth as his eyes literally shined in happiness when he was eating candy. Zenblock easily fell for a trap that Venomous made which consisted of a rocket ship filled with candy.
  • The Ahnold: Zenblock's voice is a parody of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  • Theme Twin Naming: Both Memnock and Zenblock fall into this category but whether they are related or not is up for debate
    • Played straight for their true names
    • Also played straight with their alias names of Bob and Rob
    • Averted with their nicknames of Mem and Zen but they do come in pretty close
  • Those Two Guys: Other than the fact that they are virus warriors, Memnock and Zenblock are pretty much an ordinary alien duo.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Memonck is implied to have an egg dish with coriander as his favorite food. Although he's never seen eating it, he is shown to be obsessed with cooking it.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: In the first half of season one they knew a lot about the virus and took the job of mentoring the Noobs all while using cutting edge technology and knowing scientific skills but in the second half, their IQ level was seemingly cut in half as they were shown making several idiotic moves such as screwing up with modifying a memory eraser and thinking that an attraction in a theme park was where all of Earth's political delegates met.
  • Top Heavy Guys: Memnock and Zenblock's body builds have their chest and arms bigger than the lower half of their body. Their bob and rob forms also play it straight too, especially shown with their arms being bigger than their legs. Its basically a trait that their species has.
  • Tsundere: Zenblock is a Type A non-romantic male version of this as far as the Noobs and Earth are concerned. He comes off as aggressive and serious to people but is ultimately shown to be a kind and caring person deep down.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: This clearly applies to them due to their arguments and fighting amongst each other but they are still great friends. Their friendship often has them playing competitive games against each other. Lampshaded by Tyler in episode 27 when describing that they can be competitive a lot.

    XR4Ti 
Voiced by: Rebecca Shoichet

The female artificial intelligence for Memnock and Zenblock's space ship, the Galacticus. She is often seen as the voice of reason for the Noobs and Mem and Zen and is often irritated by their shenanigans. She knows a great deal of the galaxy and Roach has a crush on her. Even though she tries to guide the noobs and Mem and Zen, she does not have much power to move around and act on her own due to being an A.I.

    General Blorgon 
Voiced by: Scott McNeil

One of the leaders of the Benevolent Alliance and Memnock and Zenblock's superior officer and mentor. Blorgon is a very strict leader who expects the best out of all the virus warriors and often uses a lot of unorthodox and sometimes insane methods to discipline and test the virus warriors. He ordered Mem and Zen to tutor the Noobs to be experienced warriors and he desires to find the virus creators and bring them to justice. He leads the war against the virus and is often accompanied by secretaries Hedies and Tecknut.

  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Has a very large chin.
  • Manchild: Blorgon has a more childish side to him when it comes to embracing Earth culture. He also loved getting a plush puppy.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He and the other elders are this. that being said, it should be noted that he and his allies will suck your brain out with a bendy straw if you lose your battleball during a inspection but this is only implied.

    Secretary Hedies 

One of the leaders of the Benevolent Alliance.

    Secretary Tecknut 
Voiced by: Lee Tockar

One of the leaders of the Benevolent Alliance.

  • Extra Eyes: He has a Third Eye.
  • Manchild: He childishly loves Earth culture as much as Mem, Zen, and Blorgon do.
  • ShapeShifting: He is revealed in "Noobs Of The Round Table" to be able to transform into things, such as a caterpillar that spits out a sticky string.

    Rovu 
A recruiter like Mem and Zen. He is a cocky and egotistical virus warrior and recruiter who often brags about his success and likes to rub it in the faces of other people. He is also a rival and a bully to Mem and Zen as he bullies and mocks them around for their lukewarm success and botched recruitment of the Noobs. He has also won the recruiter of the year award seven times. However, he loses the most recent one to Mem and Zen.

  • Always Someone Better: To Mem and Zen as he so often claims. However, they were able to be better than him at one point after they break his award streak and win the award instead of him.
  • The Bully: He loves to bully Memnock and Zenblock around. While he is not violent and aggressive towards them, he frequently makes arrogant and condescending insults towards them and laughs at them for mediocre success and mistake of selecting the Noobs. Mem and Zen were able to stand up to him though.
  • Cool Helmet: Rovu wears a helmet that looks very similar to the ones Mem and Zen wear but like Mem and Zen, Rovu is never seen without the helmet.
  • Hate Sink: Rovu’s only purpose on the show is basically to be a hated character. He was introduced at the same episode as Count Venamus, the villain of that episode but Venamus was more laughable. He is mainly hated for bullying Memnock and Zenblock in the two out of three episodes he appeared in.
  • Jerkass: Loves to rub his superiority in Mem and Zen's faces and often makes fun of them for their incompetence.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Rovu may be a cocky guy but he does care about other people as he saved Mem and Zen from being badly beaten up from virus infected citizens of Cornbury in "The Noob-I-Nators 2: Save The Earth
  • Smug Super: Rovu's status as a successful virus warrior came with a huge ego that went into his head hard, resulting in him becoming very smug towards other virus warriors.
  • Space Cop: Rovu is one, due to being a virus warrior.

Middle School

    Principal Wormeramer 
Voiced by: Maryke Hendrikse

The eccentric principal of Cornbury middle school who is always suspicious of the Noobs and their antics as well as all the strange things going on at the school. However, she is too eccentric to fully figure out what is going on.

  • Conspiracy Theorist: She knows something weird is going on at her school, but is too much of a Cloudcuckoolander to put the pieces together.
  • Secret Chaser: She suspects Tyler, Kevin, Shope and Roach are somehow involved with the weird things happening in school.

    Jock Jockerson 
Voiced by: Michael Adamthwaite

An arrogant student who is a bully towards the Noobs. He is not very intelligent and often refers to himself in third person. He often ends up in his underwear as a result of the Noobs' battles with the virus. He is mostly known for being the first human to be infected with the virus.

  • Alliterative Name: His first name and the first syllable of his last name are both "jock".
  • Dumb Jock: Very athletic, but not very smart.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Jock Jockerson is a jock.
  • Flat Character: His purpose on the show seems to consist of bullying the Noobs and becoming the first person on the show to be infected with the virus, not to mention the constant gag of being reduced to his underwear as a result of the Noobs shenanigans. He quickly wore out his welcome after the first episode.
  • Jerk Jock: Even his name is.
  • The Virus: The first one to be infected by the Virus, which turns him into a mashed potatoes monster.

  • Inelegant Blubbering: He starts crying like a baby when Cornbury's football team are once again being badly beaten by their rivals.
  • Jerkass: He shows a sadistic pleasure in cutting "losers" from the team as quickly as possible. Right after that, he sent the entirety of the team against prospective new recruits Kevin, Shope and Roach. If not for their powers, they would have been flattened.
  • Manchild: Blatantly seen when he starts baby crying when his team loses.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: He just loves yelling at his students, especially Kevin.

    Mr. Wertz 
Voiced by: Michael Adamthwaite

The science teacher. He is a paranoid mad scientist who is afraid of aliens. He tried to expose Mem and Zen when he found out they were aliens some could try to experiment on them but he was dismissed as insane. He later tries to enslave Cornbury with mind control googles but Shope stops him. He is revealed to have modified the virus and even used it on himself to concoct an evil plan to expose Mem and Zen but he was once again stopped by the noob, who were forced to drink some of Mr Wertz's virus substance in order to escape from a room he locked them in as he stole their battle balls.

  • The Cloudcuckoolander Was Right: In "Parent Teacher Noobs", he correctly guesses that the "parents" and the Noobs were actually aliens, mutants or alien-mutants. Unfortunately for him, because of his eccentricities, no one believes him.
  • Evil Teacher: He may be a teacher at Cornbury Middle School but he once tried to take over Cornbury through mind control goggles. He also created a modified form of the virus and has more than once and tried to kidnap Mem and Zen in hopes of exposing them to the world and performing sadistic and wicked experiments on them.
  • Karma Houdini: Mr. Wertz has done things that would have got him fired from his job and/or arrested and thrown in jail as he once tried to take over Cornbury with mind control goggles and modified the virus in a secret lab underneath the school. The only "punishments" he is seen getting is being thrown in an institution or taken to a rehabilitation center.
  • Mad Scientist: Wants to take over the world. Once attempted to do this through mind control goggles until Shope stopped him. He was also revealed to have built a secret lab underneath the school where he modified the virus.
  • Took A Level In Jerk Ass: Mr. Wertz started out as an okay teacher, only being a villain in "Parent Teacher Noobs" because he grew concerned and paranoid over Memnock and Zenblock's presence on Earth as aliens. Starting with "Noob Colored Glasses" he tried to take over Cornbury and the world with mind control goggles, which is considered to be his first true act of evil. He became a full fledged villain and a big jerk in "Noobs Go Viral" when he was revealed to have become obsessed with the Noobs and constructed a secret lab underneath the school where he was modifying the virus. He locked the Noobs (his own students) in his secret lab and stole their battle balls so they wouldn't escape. His paranoia over Memnock and Zenblock has turned into an obsession too.

Threats

    The Virus 
A huge threat on the universe that infects any living organism and turns them into monsters that wreak havoc on the universe. It was created by the virus creators for unknown reasons.

  • Killer Rabbit: Most of the time, the virus infects small, harmless animals, bringing this trope into play.
  • The Virus: As the name suggests, the virus effects the host, causing it to go on a rampage. HOWEVER it should be stressed that different types of viruses can cause different effects to the infected host.

    Count Venamus 
Voiced by: Trevor Devall

An agent for the creator of the virus who works for him to destroy the Noobs. Before encountering the Noobs, he was thought of as a myth but was eventually exposed by the Noobs and Mem and Zen. Since them, Venamus has become obsessed with destroying the Noobs and Meme and Zen but his plans to do so always fail and backfire mostly due to the incompetence of his minions.

  • Bald of Evil: Not much explanation needed since hes not human and is evil.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Did this when he told the Noobs about the meteor shower being thousands of virus's but subverted when he let them go as he needed them to lead him straight to the Galacticus.
  • The Dragon: To the virus' creator.
  • Evil Laugh: He often does this and has to stop himself in one case, as it would have ruined his plan to infect a room full of Virus fighters.
    • It sometimes leads to him developing a coughing fit.
  • Invisibility: Has stealth tech that grants him this ability.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: His coughing every time he evil laughs is an example. His ship blows up while he was inside it, launching him into space without oxygen and towards the fourth wall, and he gets crushed by an escape pod while Mem and Zen were inside it.
  • Large Ham: Venamus' hammy moments can be seen during his evil laughing and coughing.
  • Psychopathic Man Child: Venamus can be best described as a psychopath with childish tendencies as he loves spreading The Virus all over the universe to make innocent people suffer. At the same time though, he sometimes acts childish as seen in "Noobs Vs. Venamus 12" when Venamus transforms into his twelve year old self and take a huge liking towards candy and light up sneakers.
  • Redemption Rejection: The season 2 finale shows that while he enjoys some stuff on earth, he wants victory above everything, his minion on the other hand disagree.
  • Shrouded in Myth: Since he is often invisible, some say he doesn't exist.
  • The Sociopath: Count Venamus has many traits of sociopathy in him. Such traits include Lack of Empathy, a willingness to spread the virus for his own sadistic desires, and has attempted multiple times to murder the Noobs and Mem and Zen. The main cast tried to get him to do a Heel–Face Turn but this fails when Venamus manipulates Mem and Zen into opening his prison pod and proceeds to shove them inside the pod and launch it into the sky.

     The Creator of the Virus 

The main antagonist of the series. He created the virus to destroy the Benevolent Alliance and turn all organic species into rampaging monsters

  • Big Bad: Of Supernoobs.
  • Hidden Villain: He is the main villain but his identity is shrouded in mystery. All that's known about him so far is that he has 6 red eyes and speaks in an alien language only Venamus understands.
  • Karma Houdini: Manages to avoid karma for the entirety of the season as he has gotten away with things such as genocide and terrorism. However, it can be justified as his identity and motive for releasing the virus have not been revealed.
