The Powerpuff Girls

The heroines of the show.

    In General 
  • Adaptation Name Change: In the original series it was mentioned once or twice that the girls' surname is "Utonium". For whatever reason, in the reboot Blossom refers to herself as "Blossom Powerpuff".
  • Adaptational Dumbass: The girls' negative traits have been played up, so they're more ditzy.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Poor girls. As if amping up their bad character traits in the reboot wasn't enough, they were subject to this too. Now they go down in one hit almost all the time.
  • Black Bead Eyes: In the 2016 series, they will be drawn with these sorts of eyes on occasion.
  • Character Exaggeration: All three of the girls receive this in the reboot. Blossom becomes a Neat Freak and her perfectionist tendencies are cranked Up to Eleven, Bubbles is a lot more energetic and slightly crazy (she's also a technical genius now, because reasons), and Buttercup is even more of a tomboyish jerkass than she was in the 1998 series.
  • Gamer Chick: All three girls are shown to really love playing video games in the 2016 series, especially Dragon Wizard Skateboard Fighters. Blossom and Bubbles also enjoy a TRPG called Phantasm Chasm in the episode of the same name.
  • Vague Age: The Powerpuff Girls (2016) takes this approach; the girls should be in kindergarten or 1st grade (the first episode has them returning to Pokey Oaks Kindergarten just before it's demolished) but they're in middle school classes and act like tweens.
  • Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises: In the 2016 series, their pupils shrink whenever they are frightened or surprised.
  • Wing Ding Eyes: Drawn like this frequently in the reboot, their eyes often turn into symbols to match what they're feeling.

    Blossom 
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Appears to have some form of OCD in the reboot, seeing as how she flips out whenever things are the tiniest bit messy.
  • Butt-Monkey: In the reboot, she gets her pride threatened much more often than her sisters (watch "Presidential Punchout", and/or "Halt and Catch Silico" for proof), and depending on the episode, Blossom and Bubbles don't always respect Blossom.
  • Character Exaggeration: The pride Blossom displayed in the original series mainly stemmed from a desire to ensure that she and her sisters were in top form. In the reboot, she's far more given to vanity.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: When Bubbles gets the lead role of a play with Jared Shapiro in "A Star Is Blossom", Blossom goes nuts.
  • Crush Blush: Whenever talking to Jared Shapiro. Buttercup lampshades this.
  • Cry Cute: In "Poorbucks" after Princess betrays her.
  • Ditzy Genius: Has this temperament in the 2016 series. She thinks that colts are young horses and that fillies are "horses with attitude". In "Dance Pantsed", she doesn't know how take a pickle jar off the shelf without Bubbles' help.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: To Jared in the 2016 series.
  • Dork Knight: She's a huge nerd in the 2016 reboot. Especially when she interacts with Jared Shapiro and when she fangirls out when meeting Dr. Kenzington.
  • Fangirl: To Dr. Kenzington.
  • Humiliation Conga: Suffers this at the very end of "A Made Up Story". She slips on a mud puddle, trips onto a can of red paint, crashes into a bag of flour, and then trips in a bag of Styrofoam.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Bloss" and "Ribbonhead" by Buttercup in the 2016 reboot.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": She squeals happily when she meets Dr. Kenzington in "Blue Ribbon Blues".
  • Letting Her Hair Down:
    • In "The Mane Event", she lets her hair down when she wakes up.
    • Does this again in "Forced Kin" when she takes her bow and hair clip off.
  • Likes Older Men: She has feelings for Jared Shapiro of the reboots, although it's unknown exactly how much older he is than her. We do know that he's of elementary school age, and Blossom is younger than that.
  • Neat Freak: In the reboot, she hates disorganization and gets angry whenever things aren't clean enough to her.
  • No Respect Guy: Often gets this in the reboot. Whenever she acts as a voice of reason, her sisters don't always listen to her ("Rainy Day" is a key example).
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: In the 2016 series she has a crush on Jared Shapiro, who is kind, affable, and talented.
  • Security Blanket: Her bow in "Bow Jest". She does learn to not be so overly-dependent on it, though, and it's Bubbles of all people to tell her.
  • Super OCD: Has been flanderized into this in the reboot. She is highly afraid of being dirty, wears latex gloves before touching anything messy, and is obsessed with cleanliness and organization.
  • Terrified of Germs: As of the reboot, she has an outright fear of any sort of dirt, even a little bit of it.
  • Trademark Favorite Drink: Strawberry milk.
  • Traumatic Haircut: Suffers this in "The Mane Event", and ends up getting laughed at by all of Townsville because of it.
  • Yandere: Shows signs of it in "A Star Is Blossom", when she gets furious over Bubbles having a role in a play with Jared. She is so obsessed with having Jared all to herself that she is willing to lock Bubbles in a closet to do it.

    Bubbles 
  • Adaptational Intelligence: A little bit smarter in the reboot than her previous self, seeing as how she's good with computer coding.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: In the reboot, she appears to have bipolar disorder, since she repeatedly switches from being kind and gentle to being an Ax-Crazy psycho.
  • Bring My Brown Pants: Implied in "15 Minutes Of Fame" when she says it was a good thing that she was wearing a diaper, "for two reasons".
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Becomes one when she gets envious about Donny's friendship with Chelsea in "Odd Bubbles Out".

  • Inopportune Voice Cracking: Her voice squeaks whenever saying the word "unicorn" in "Horn Sweet Horn".
  • Jive Turkey: Shown to be very much in-touch with modern trends and Internet slang in the 2016 series.
    Bubbles: OMG! YAAAS!
  • The Millstone: She takes off her disguise while sneaking past the guards in "The Last Donnycorn", thus resulting in her, the Girls, and Donny getting caught.
  • Potty Emergency: Has a very brief one in "The Last Donnycorn" while Donny tells the Girls a story.
    Bubbles: Wait! [Drawn with Black Bead Eyes, blushing] I gots to potty.
    Buttercup: Seriously?
    [cut to Bubbles walking out of the bathroom and toilet flushing sound is heard]
  • Putting the Pee in Pool: At one random point in "A Star Is Blossom", Bubbles admits to peeing in the bath.
  • Threatening Mediator: In "Largo", she forces Blossom and Buttercup and Allegro and Largo to apologize to each other in order to get rid of the rain cloud.
    Bubbles: Now, we're going to have a tea party, (throws Blossom and Buttercup to the table) and we're going to have a nice time, (throws Allegro and Largo to the table) because you're all going to apologize to each other, RIGHT NOW! Or do I have to get mad?!
  • Traumatic Haircut: In "Bubbles of the Opera", her hair was made very short at the hands of the same lady who gave Bubbles a terrible school photo.
  • The Unfavorite: She feared becoming this in "Road Tripping". She is proven not to be this, however.
  • Voice Changeling: "Man Up 2" reveals her to be good at vocal mimicry.
  • Vocal Dissonance: In the 2016 series, her voice deepens when she cries.
  • Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: Her darker side comes out more often in the new series. She acts nice most of the time, but she'll go demonic the second things don't go her way and she'll revert to her cute yet mentally unstable self.

    Buttercup 
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Her bullying, aggressiveness, and overall bad behavior has been amped up in the 2016 series.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She is immature, naughty, and loves making jokes, but she will get serious when she has to.
  • Blunt "Yes": Responded this way in "Bubbles of the Opera" when Bubbles asked her if she looked ugly.
  • Character Exaggeration: In the reboot her aggressiveness has been upped. She does a lot of the fighting and is angrier than in original show, to the point where an episode has her sisters essentially staging an intervention to get her to calm down after she goes into a berserk rage where she severely destroys a festival and gives Bubbles a black eye. Even outside of fighting she does things like being the Class Clown when in the original continuity she only did that alongside other kids.
  • Genki Girl: In the 2016 show, a tomboyish version. She is rebellious, and impulsive.
  • Growling Gut: Her stomach rumbles in the first 2016 comic book while searching for snacks to watch her favorite show.
    Buttercup: Good gut. Down, girl.
  • Hates Wearing Dresses: She is fine with her default dress but she hates frilly dresses.
  • The Hyena: In the 2016 series, she'll burst out laughing at any mention of "butts".
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Her borderline egotistical behavior shows signs that she really doesn't think too highly of herself. Her toughness is possibly just a way to get some form of attention since her sisters out of the three get the most.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: She volunteers to take care of her sick sisters in "Sister Sitter", but it was only to stay home from school.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: In "People Pleaser" she claims to know about biomes. Turns out later that she has no idea what she was doing when "helping" Bubbles and only makes Bubbles's biome project look worse.
  • Mouthy Kid: In "Painbow", she makes some disrespectful remarks when Ms. Keane is giving a lesson.
  • The Nicknamer: In the 2016 reboot, she calls Blossom "Bloss" and Bubbles "Bubs"...and when she's in a snarkier mood, "Ribbonhead" and "Pigtails", respectively.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Prone to giving over-confident smirks whenever she gains the upper hand in battle.
  • No Indoor Voice: Buttercup is constantly shouting in the original series. However, as of the 2016 series, her voice gets a little softer and quieter due to becoming more of a Deadpan Snarker.
  • No, You: She's prone to arguing this way. In "Sugar, Spice, and Super Lice", when she grows her hair out into an unhealthily long mullet, Blossom tells her "these are exactly the kinds of things you do that cause problems". Buttercup retorts, "No, you're exactly the kinds of things that cause problems!"
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In "Air Buttercup", accompanied by steam coming out her ears.
  • Sore Loser: She was furious at Bubbles for losing them the kickball game in "Little Octi Lost" and even hid Octi from her because of it.
  • Verbal Tic: In the 2016 reboot, you'd be hard pressed finding a sentence she says that doesn't begin with "Dude..."
  • Would Hurt a Child: In "Professor Proofed", she has no qualms with trying to beat up a baby that was grown to large size due to being hit with a growth ray.

     Allegro 

Allegro

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/allegro.jpg
Voiced by: Eric Bauza
A panda-like creature with strange powers.
  • Acid-Trip Dimension: Allegro's... world, so to speak, looks like what one would see on the ultimate of highs.
  • Affably Evil: Sure is friendly and nice for somebody who's a villain.
  • Anti-Villain: He's not malicious, more so inconsiderate of how his powers affect the people around him and the resulting collateral damage.
  • Beary Funny: A very silly villain, and also takes the form of a panda bear.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Very much with this kind of bear...
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's quite the goofy sort, but his rainbow causes everyone to act silly enough to cause havoc.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: His rainbow induces people into an ecstatic trance that makes them overly happy to the point of it being unsettling.
  • Broken Record: "I just want to party. I just want to party. I just want to party."
  • Catchphrase: "It's party time!"
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Allegro is quite the weirdo. He also causes other people to act like this too.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: To HIM from the previous series. Both are powerful, supernatural creatures with immense reality-warping abilities, both characters resemble animals, both characters are Sissy Villains, and both characters draw their power from emotions. However, HIM draws power from negative emotions while Allegro draws his power from happiness. Also, HIM is a genuinely competent and menacing villain who is more than capable of taking on the girls while Allegro is an Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain who never fights the girls himself.
  • The Corrupter:
    • "Painbow": He turns the citizens of Townsville into happy, fun-loving zombies.
    • "Somewhere Over the Swingset": Subverted. He tries to keep the Girls in his alternate Townsville by giving them an ideal world, but they don't buy it.
  • Cuddle Bug: He thinks that hugs make everything better.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: The way he constantly tries to hug and force himself onto Buttercup, despite her repeatedly saying no, makes him come off as a complete pedophile.
    Allegro: You're harshing the party vibes! I know! Give me a hug!
    Buttercup: Ugh! No way, man! I'm having a moment!
    Allegro: Hug me! Hugs make everything better!
    Buttercup: Dude, no!
    Allegro: Just one little hug...!
    Buttercup: Back off!
    Allegro: Hug me! Give me a hug!
    Buttercup: Get away from me, you creep!
    Allegro: Come on! Just One. Little. Hug...!
    Buttercup: I said NO!
  • Emotion Eater: His second appearance reveals, though doesn't explicitly state, that he gets stronger by feeding off the happiness of others, which is why he tries to instill as much happiness in others as possible.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He may be a party animal but can't stand Largo since he pretty much brings down his party vibes and practically walks off from Bubbles' tea party when he sees him. Considering Largo's the literal other half of the being they once were, it's not surprising.
  • Evil Counterpart: His debut appearance makes him one to Buttercup. Both characters are immature party animals who want to have fun, but while Buttercup comes to recognize that there are times when one needs to be serious, Allegro wants to have fun, even if it hurts others in the process.
  • Fusion Dance: He's one half of the Cosmic Bear, the other being Largo. Allegro represents the Cosmic Bear's cheery side, while Largo is all his negative traits. The two merge together once more by the end of the episode, effectively ending Allegro as a villain.
  • Giggling Villain: He loves doing this, maybe a bit too much.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Remerges with Largo to become the Cosmic Bear once more by the end of "Largo".
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Out of all the main antagonists of the reboot, he is by far the least effective. His plans rarely come to fruition, his panda form is very fragile and shatters in a few hits, and he doesn't seem to have any fighting prowess.
  • Literal Split Personality: The episode "Largo" reveals he's actually one half of a being named the Cosmic Bear with the other being Largo. Both representing his positive and negative sides, Allegro being the cheery side who only wishes to make people happy (even if it's forced) and Largo representing the sadness and depression. Ultimately Bubbles manages to get the two to accept each other which allows them to re-merge back into Cosmic Bear.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: His second appearance had him attempt to trap the girls in a world where they weren't needed since the Mayor could run the city on his own and all the villains were reformed just so he could feed off their happiness. The girls however don't go for it and manage to escape.
  • Made of Plasticine: His panda form is not terribly durable, needing only a few hits to shatter it and reveal his true form.
  • Master of Illusion: More so in "Somewhere Over the Swingset", where he creates a fake, ideal world for the Girls to live in, where all the citizens are just his army in disguise.
  • Meaningful Name: The word "Allegro" can mean "cheerful" or "with joy". This is quite fitting, considering that Allegro wants the citizens of Townsville to be happy.
  • Monster Clown: Disguises himself as this in his second appearance to lure the girls into riding a swingset that traps them in a Lotus-Eater Machine.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: He constantly tries to hug others even when they're unwilling.
  • Obliviously Evil: He doesn't seem to have even the basic understanding that what he's doing is wrong.
  • Panda-ing to the Audience: Resembles a giant talking panda, but it's not his true form.
  • Perpetual Smiler: He is almost never seen without that creepy grin of his.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Allegro has the mindset of an immature teenager who just wants an eternally carefree life of non-stop partying.
  • The Pollyanna: Allegro is a carefree, perpetually-joyful panda. He brainwashes other people into acting this way as well.
  • Reality Warper: Seems to have this power. He can create a rainbow that instills happiness in anyone who looks at it, can shapeshift and disguise himself into other forms, can trap people in dream worlds among other magical feats.
  • Shaking the Rump: What Allegro is infamous for in his episode, where he actually engages in the act of twerking with a brainwashed Blossom and Bubbles. No, you did not read that wrong.
  • Sissy Villain: Has a high-piched voice and acts very effeminate, but is still dangerous in his own right.
  • Stealth Pun: He loves to party and resembles a panda. He's a party animal.
  • Third-Person Person: Talks like this most of the time, but drops it whenever he gets annoyed.
  • Wingding Eyes: Has rainbow circles in his eyes. Gives those same type of eyes to those affected by his powers, as well.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Wants people to be happy, but goes a bit overboard, since it keeps them from realizing what they're doing, like crashing cars and wrecking buildings. Though given that his second appearance reveals that he feeds off positive emotions, it's possible that he's doing it mostly for himself and not for others.

     Manboy 

Manboy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/manboy.png
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche
A new supervillain with a lumberjack motif who is half man, half boy and wants all of Townsville to be manly.
  • Angry White Man: Believes that girls and effeminate men have turned Townsville into a dystopia that he needs to reclaim.
  • Arch-Enemy: He views Buttercup as one.
  • Badass Beard: Manboy is even able to weaponize his beard.
  • Beard of Evil: And he can use his beard to attack people.
  • Defiant to the End: Despite getting beaten to a pulp and thrown into the distance, he continues to mock Buttercup.
  • Dumb Muscle: For his age, his strength is impressive. Too bad he's woefully in over his head when he picks fights with the Powerpuff Girls.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Similar to the Bikini Sisters, he makes a cameo in the intro. Specifically, he's getting kicked in the face by Blossom.
  • Enemy Mine: Forms one with Blossom and Buttercup when a bearded Bubbles proves too much for him.
  • Evil Is Petty: In his second appearance, he steals all the water in Townsville... so he can water his huge lawn.
  • Foil: To the Powerpuff Girls. While the girls are a parody of the "Girl Power" fad, Man Boy is a negative parody of MRAs (men's rights activists), PUAs (pick-up artists) and MGTOWs (men going their own way). Both sets of movements mistakenly believe that strength is measured in how violent and domineering their respective genders are.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: A brawny manly-man of a boy who hates all women and "effeminate men" for no real reason aside from that's what he thinks a man should act like.
  • Humongous Mecha: Controlled a mecha made of wood.
  • Hypocrite: Feels that not conforming to traditional gender roles is a form of oppression, but doesn't have a problem forcing those same roles on the unwilling.
  • Jerkass: He's an arrogant little twerp who acts what he thinks a man should be: a humongous asshole.
  • Manchild: Inverted in a way, because he's a child acting out what he thinks a man should be.
  • Mighty Lumberjack: His main motif.
  • Mind over Matter: Capable of animating objects such as lumber robots, meat, and even his beard to move how he wants through sheer manly willpower.
  • Prehensile Hair: His beard in this case, which he uses in fights. He can even regrow it through force of will.
  • Revenge: After he's beaten by Buttercup the first time, he targets her specifically afterward.
  • Straw Misogynist: Has very childish opinions about girls and refuses to acknowledge Buttercup's toughness, even as she's beating him up. Somewhat justified, as he's just a kid, and really stupid.
  • Testosterone Poisoning: Considers himself a "manly man", and his overall goal is to make all of Townsville as such.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Doesn't see the Powerpuffs as threats, since to him, they're just girls, despite the three clearly being known as Townsville's superheroes.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Considering his a misogynistic enemy of the Powerpuff Girls, yeah, he doesn't seem to have any qualms about hurting them.
  • Younger Than They Look: It's easy to mistake him for a fully grown adult, but he's actually just a kid with "manly" abilities and physique.

     The Fashionistas 

Bianca & Barbarus Bikini

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vlcsnap_2016_07_10_18h01m32s925.png
Bianca Bikini voiced by: Lily Vonnegut
Barbarus Bikini voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker
A.K.A The Fashionistas. A pair of fashion obsessed criminal sisters.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: In "Bridezilla", Bianca confesses to trying to ruin Barbarus' wedding, but only because she was afraid that Barbarus would leave her. She later comes to terms with it, because it would make her sister happy. Sure, the wedding got called off anyway, but it's still a touching moment.
  • Combat Stilettos: Bianca wears some that have hidden blades. Wears them on her hands when fighting.
  • Fan Disservice: Barbarus Bikini wears more revealing clothing than her sister and also happens to be a huge gorilla.
  • The Fashionista: Care more about fashion and trends than anything. They are even called The Fashionistas, starting with "Fashion Forward".
  • Early-Bird Cameo: They can be seen in the intro even though they don't make an appearance until "Bye Bye Bellum".
  • Enemy Mine: Bianca forms one with the girls, in order to stop Barbarus' wedding with Mojo Jojo.
  • Femme Fatale: Bianca moreso, especially in "Bye, Bye, Bellum".
  • Hartman Hips: Bianca's lower body is huge.
  • Letting Her Hair Down: When Bianca goes on the attack, she undoes the bun in her hair.
  • Mind Control: Their second appearance has them selling scarfs dubbed Smooji's and, once they were popular enough, activating them to wrap around their victims heads to control them.
  • Non-Indicative Name: In spite of their surname being Bikini, only Barbarus' attire remotely resembles a bikini. This may be the reason behind their Sudden Name Change.
  • Poke the Poodle: Their idea of "destroying" the Powerpuffs is to...dip them in tye-dye and make them look tacky. Their next scheme in "Fashion Forward", however, is a lot more dastardly.
  • Remember the New Guy?: They have fought the Powerpuff Girls before their debut episode Bye Bye, Bellum.
  • The Speechless: Barbarus is never heard saying anything over than a few growling noises.
  • Siblings in Crime: They're sisters. Weirdly, Barbarus seems to be a gorilla. The implication is that they're adopted.
  • Sudden Name Change: They were originally introduced as the Bikini Sisters, but starting with "Fashion Forward", they are called the Fashionistas.

     Packrat 

Packrat

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/packrat_picture.png
Voiced by: Jason Spisak
A mutant, human-sized rat that lives in the Townsville dump who likes to take shiny things and hoard them.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: It's possible that he is a schizophrenic. See The Mentally Disturbed for more examples.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Got mutated into a goo covered gigantic beast in "Strong Armed" due to toxic waste spilling on him. He's back to normal by the end of the episode.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: His entire character centers around this one trait. Packrat loves shiny things.
  • Beast Man: He's a mutated, humanoid rat.
  • The Beastmaster: Can command regular rats to act as his minions.
  • Calling Card: Packrat deliberately leaves cards to notify the owners of whatever object he's stealing, that he's the culprit.
  • Companion Cube: Doubles as a Running Gag, he always seems to have different objects (such as a portrait of a doll or a hula bobble figure for example) which he treats as his "girlfriends", only to lose them in the end in some fashion. It also drives his obsession with shiny things since he steals them as "presents".
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Doesn't show up much past season 1. He does make a brief return in "Total Eclipse of the Kart".
  • Funny Schizophrenia: If he does have schizophrenia, which it is implied he does. It's all played for comedy.
  • Meaningful Name: A packrat is a type of rodent that accumulates in mounds of trash or a person who hoards massive quantities of items, but discards none of it. Given Packrat is literally a rat, lives in a junkyard, surrounded by trash, this is quite fitting.
  • The Mentally Disturbed: He appears to have some form of schizophrenia, seeing that he apparently can hear his inanimate objects talk to him.
  • Humongous Mecha: Wielded one made out of the shiny things he collected in his debut episode ("Little Octi Lost"). It was easily destroy by Blossom, however.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Like the Bikini sisters, the girls have apparently dealt with him before.
  • Shout-Out: Designed to look like something made by Dr. Seuss.
    • His obsession with shiny things seems to be a reference to Gollum.
  • Third-Person Person: Always refers to himself as "Packrat".
  • You Dirty Rat!: Well, he is a rat, and a supervillain.
  • Your Size May Vary: In one scene he's big enough to push down two office buildings that are several stories tall, but when the dust settles he isn't nearly that big. It seems that the animators and Writers Have No Sense of Scale.

     Silico 

Silico

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/silico_9.png
Voiced by: Jason Spisak
An enigmatic, technological supervillain with a personal grudge against the Powerpuff Girls.
  • Actually a Doombot: Silico is fond of using holograms and other decoys. In “Halt and Catch Silico”, it’s revealed that he’d been a hologram the entire time. Buttercup even Lampshades it as a supervillain cliche. He takes it a step further in “The Troubles With Bubbles”, where he’s implied to have uploaded himself into a computer, and is now capable of making 3D copies of himself.
  • And I Must Scream: In Lights Out, Bubbles reprograms Silico's own Gadget to trap him in a dream where he believes he defeat the Powerpuff Girls.
  • Art Evolution: He wasn’t drawn with ears in his first appears, and his mouth was visible when talking.
  • At Least I Admit It: Wholeheartedly agrees with Buttercup when the latter calls him “messed up”, but blames the girls for it.
    Buttercup: Dude, you're messed up.
    Silico: Yes, I am messed up.
  • Badass Normal: Silico himself isn’t the most imposing figure nor does he possess any superpowers, but he more than makes up for it with his intelligence and has a wide assortment of technology to level the playing field.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: In the episode “Viral Spiral”. While the Amoeba Boys were defeated by the girls, Silico’s microchip released a swarm of viruses that transmit data to him.
    Silico: Ah, Powerpuff Girls, you may have won the battle, but you've already lost the war.
    • Subverted in Lights Out. He thinks he won, but it's ultimately an illusion conjured by Bubbles.
  • Bald of Evil: The shape of his head suggests that he doesn't have any hair. This is confirmed in "Halt and Catch Silico", where the outline of his younger self's head suggests the presence of hair and he is still shown as having a round head devoid of noticeable follicles in present day.
  • Big "NO!": Has a few here and there.
    • “Halt and Catch Silico”: As a child in his flashback when he witnessed his robot friends crushed by a monster the girls were fighting.
    • “The Trouble With Bubbles”: When the Bubbles clone turns on him and later pulls him to his supposed demise.
  • Brains Evil, Brawn Good: He's an evil computer genius who seeks to destroy the more physically powerful, titular heroes.
  • Brain Uploading: Uploads his conscience into a 3D clone of himself at the end of “The Trouble With Bubbles”.
  • Breakout Villain: Given the series is a Lighter and Softer reboot, many were pleasantly surprised to see Silico debut as a genuine Knight of Cerebus, and the fact that he actually succeeds at the end of the episode, quickly turned him into the most popular new villain within the show.
  • The Chessmaster: He's very good at misleading others and playing them to his advantage.
  • Child Prodigy: His backstory in “Halt and Catch Silico” reveals that he was gifted in robotics.
  • Color Motif: He's largely associated with green and bright blue. The blue tends to be used with an eerie glow effect, while the green is utilized in Tron Lines. His eyes are also green.
  • The Comically Serious: Even he has his moments.
    • In "Viral Spiral," when dealing with the Amoeba Boys' stupidity:
    (Silico tosses them a microchip.)
    Bossman: What's this?
    Silico: It will not only destroy the game, it will wipe out the entire Internet.
    (The Amoeba Boys just stand there, silent.)
    Silico: It will be a worldwide catastrophe.
    (The Amoeba Boys still look clueless.)
    Silico: ... Which will really annoy the Powerpuff Girls.
    (The Amoeba Boys immediately become intrigued.)
    • In "Halt and Catch Silico," when the Powerpuff Girls confront him at Silico Industries:
    Buttercup: Okay, that's it computer face, you're going down!
    Silico: No Buttercup, it is you that will be going—
    (Buttercup punches the screen. Another appears.)
    Silico: Don't do that. It won't—
    (Buttercup punches the screen again. It's replaced by a third.)
    Silico: Stop that. It's super annoy—
    (Buttercup punches the screen yet again.)
  • Consummate Liar: If only by virtue of Townsville easily believing everything he posts on the Muckbucket.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: To Mojo Jojo. Both characters are villains with no superpowers beyond their immense intellect and have a deep, personal grudge against the Powerpuff Girls, but Mojo is a superintelligent monkey while Silico is a human computer genius. Also, while Mojo can be a threatening villain from time to time, he has an almost equal share of comedy. Silico, on the other hand, is played entirely straight as a genuine, competent threat with no comedic quirks, save for his occasional comically serious moments.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: The head of both Silico Industries and Tech Co., and uses their resources in his vendetta against the girls.
  • The Cracker: Hijacks the Internet in “Viral Spiral”, with the girls none the wiser.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He knows how to cover his bases.
    • “Viral Spiral”: While the Amoeba Boys fail to directly plant his virus into the hub of the Internet, the chip simply opens to reveal several viruses that spread throughout the Internet anyway.
    • “Halt and Catch Silico”: When the girls confront him in his headquarters, he escapes via his keyboard. It's even blatantly labeled 'Escape'.
    • “The Trouble With Bubbles”: After the Bubbles clone seemingly pulls him to his death, the end reveals that he not only survived but can upload his conscience into 3D copies of himself, essentially allowing him to cheat death.
  • Create Your Own Villain: When the girls knock a monster onto Silico's workshop, with his friends still inside, they accidentally trigger his Start of Darkness.
  • Creepy Monotone: Speaks in a very even, almost robotic voice.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: After stealing the Professor’s suit, he absolutely trounces the girls in a fight. Shortly after, he’s on the receiving end of one himself by the Professor.
  • Cut Lex Luthor a Check: With all of his technological inventions and marvels, he could make a pretty sizable profit or even do some good in the world, but instead uses them for personal revenge.
  • Dark Is Evil: He’s literally a dark supervillain, always shrouded in silhouette.
  • Diminishing Villain Threat: In his debut episode, he plays the Amoeba Boys for complete tools, and succeeds in hijacking the Internet with the girls unaware of his existence. In his “Halt and Catch Silico”, he initiates a smear campaign against the girls, but the articles are blatantly false and downright petty. He recovers somewhat in “Take Your Kids to Dooms Day”, successfully manipulating the Professor into creating a suit that allows him to defeat the Powerpuff Girls, but he also holds the Villain Ball when one of his holograms spills his entire plot to the Professor, allowing him to plan ahead. He seems to have recovered fully in “The Trouble With Bubbles”, successfully hacking Bubbles’ 3D printer to sabotage her clone and later cheat death by creating 3D clones of himself to imitate anyone he desires, including the Professor.
  • Disney Villain Death: He seemingly perishes in "The Trouble With Bubbles", when the Bubbles clone performs a Taking You with Me before she self-destructs. He later turns out to be Not Quite Dead, and uploads his conscience into a 3D clone of himself.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Hates the Powerpuffs because they accidentally knocked a monster they were fighting into his workshop where he had built mini-robots to be his friends. Considering the resources he has at his disposal, it wouldn't be hard to replace them, but he instead focuses on revenge.
  • Drop the Hammer: In "Take Your Kids to Dooms Day", he morphs his hand into a giant hammer to crush the girls, until the Professor intervened.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Upon acquiring the Professor's suit in "Take Your Kids to Dooms Day", he's not only faster and more agile, but Nigh Invulnerable as well.
  • Establishing Character Moment: When he debuts in "Viral Spiral", he approaches the Amoeba Boys after knocking out the power around them and ominously convincing the gang to carry out a hijacking of the Internet for him under the pretense that it would "really annoy the Powerpuff Girls".
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He was very fond of his robotic creations, and was distraught when they were destroyed. He even went out of his way to dig graves for each and every one of them.
  • Evil Genius: An antagonist who happens to be a robotics prodigy.
  • Evil Is Petty: His entire grudge against the Powerpuff Girls stems from them accidentally dropping a monster on his workshop and destroying his toy robots; "Halt and Catch Silico" has him writing false articles about the girls to smear their reputation.
  • Evil Laugh: He possesses a nasal, but somewhat malevolent laugh.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: His face is always shrouded in darkness.
  • The Faceless: Because of the aforementioned Face Framed in Shadow, we don’t see any distinguishing features beyond the green eyes.
  • Friendless Background: His flashback in "Halt and Catch Silico" reveals that he never had any friends, so he used his technical expertise to make toy robots to be his, before they were crushed by a monster falling onto his workshop.
  • Freudian Excuse: His parents weren't always there for him, so he created robots to keep him company, until they were all inadvertently destroyed by a monster the girls were fighting. This appears to be his primary motivation for revenge.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: He was a relatively normal, yet lonely child with a gift for technology. The loss of his friends drove him to become a villain hellbent on revenge.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Is capable of creating several robotic minions, which he controls with a handy keyboard. Said keyboard also comes with a convenient escape button.
  • Hidden Villain: The girls remain completely unaware of his involvement with the Amoeba Boys in “Viral Spiral”.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He’s killed by the Bubbles clone when he activates its self-destruct mechanism in a last-ditch effort to destroy the girls.
  • I Shall Taunt You: Swarms Blossom with multiple false articles that insult her character.
  • I'll Kill You!: "Yes, I am messed up. You've messed me up. And one day, I'll mess you up, and you'll never see it coming!"
  • It Amused Me: Silico clearly got a kick out of tricking the Girls into delivering a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on Mojo under false pretenses.
  • It's Personal: Silico has it out for the girls after they inadvertently destroyed his robot friends.
  • Kick the Dog: Almost gets the girls lynched after writing false articles about them on the Muckbucket. He also falsely implicates Mojo Jojo of cooking kittens, knowing the girls would beat the snot out of him for it. However…
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: It's later revealed that Mojo was cooking for the kittens, as he planned to use them for his evil army. Once the Girls find out, you know the drill.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The 2016 series is Lighter and Softer than the original, but Silico was the first new villain to be presented as a genuine threat.
  • Lean and Mean: Not the most imposing figure, but compensates with his intellect.
  • Leitmotif: There's a sinister score that accompanies him whenever he appears.
  • Malicious Slander: His entire plan in a nutshell in “Halt and Catch Silico”.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Silico plays everyone like a fiddle. In “Viral Spiral”, used the Amoeba Boys as pawns to plant his virus into the Internet. Then, in “Halt and Catch Silico”, he turns Townsville against the girls with a few false articles and even plays the girls for saps when he sics them on Mojo under the pretense he was cooking kittens. In “Takes Your Kids to Dooms Day”, he tricks the Professor into creating a super suit for him to defeat the girls with.
  • Man Behind the Man: He’s the one behind the Amoeba Boys in “Viral Spiral”.
  • Master of Illusion: He utilizes various complex holograms and decoys to fool the girls.
    • "Halt and Catch Silico": He makes judicious use of holograms and solid robots, making it difficult for the Girls to tell which ones are actually real.
    (The Girls attempt to attack a robot but go right through it.)
    Buttercup: What gives?! These guys aren't real! They're holograms!
    (One of the real robots punches the Girls into the wall.)
    Blossom: I think some of them are real...
    Silico: Indeed. You can't believe everything you see... or read.
    • "Take Your Kids to Dooms Day": All of the other Tech Co. employees are holograms, with himself disguised as “Ms. Licosi”.
    • "The Trouble With Bubbles": Taking things a step further, he can now create 3D copies of himself and alter their likeness to imitate anyone he chooses.
  • Meaningful Name: In a meta sense "Halt and Catch Silico" is a spin on the TV series Halt and Catch Fire. One of the main settings, is the Silicon Valley. Remove the N and what do you get? Silico.
  • Misplaced Retribution: The entire ordeal he suffered was a complete accident, being the result of collateral damage.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Comes very close to destroying the Powerpuff Girls time and again but falls short.
    • “Halt and Catch Silico”: He had the girls on the ropes for most of their fight, until he called Blossom disorganized, causing her to destroy his lair.
    • “Take Your Kids to Dooms Day”: Defeats the girls with the Professor’s suit, but is foiled at the last minute by the Professor himself, who came prepared with his own suit.
    • “The Trouble With Bubbles”: His 3D clone of Bubbles overwhelmed the girls and would have killed them had the clone not inherited too much of Bubbles’ personality.
  • No, You: Buttercup interrupts him before he even finishes.
    Buttercup: Okay, that's it computer face, you're going down!
    Silico: No Buttercup, it is you that will be going—
    (Buttercup punches the screen.)
  • Non-Standard Character Design: While only seen in silhouette for the most part, his appearance is much more angular and lanky, in comparison to the fairly round designs of the rest of the cast, excepting his bald head. He almost looks like he's from the original series.
  • Not Quite Dead: Although the Bubbles clone kills him at the end of "The Problem With Bubbles", The Stinger reveals that he can simply upload his conscience into 3D copies of himself in the event that he's "killed".
  • Only One Name: It's unknown if Silico is his real name or just a pseudonym/alias. It's likely the former, as his robot friends referred to him as Silico, even as a child.
  • Parental Neglect: His parents were never around when he was a child, which contributed to his feelings of isolation.
  • The Pen Is Mightier: Or more accurately, the keyboard.
    Silico: I'm afraid the keyboard is mightier than the sword.
  • Rapid-Fire Typing: With his keyboard, he's able to conjure up multiple articles within a remarkably short period of time.
  • Revenge: His sole motivation for destroying the Powerpuff Girls is because of a grudge born after they accidentally knocked a monster onto his workshop, destroying his robot friends.
  • Say My Name: When the girls confront him for the first time, he introduces himself. Over and over again.
    Silico: I am Silico.
    (More screens appear)
    Silico: Silico.
    (More screens appear)
    Silico: Silico.
    (More screens appear)
    Silico: Silico. Silico.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Although it's obscured, he appears to be wearing some kind of suit. It becomes more literal in "Take Your Kids to Dooms Day", where he uses the Professor's new suit to fight the Girls one on three.
  • Significant Anagram: His alias "Ms. Licosi" in "Take You Kids to Dooms Day" is really an anagram for "Silico".
  • Sinister Silhouettes: He has no discernable features, always appearing as a dark silhouette with green eyes.
  • Start of Darkness: He was once a normal child who suffered from Parental Neglect and a Friendless Background. He was gifted, however, and put his talents to use by creating his own friends: little robots who would keep him company. However, that all ended when the Powerpuff Girls came into his life, knocking a monster onto his workshop, crushing all of his friends in the process. Distraught by their "deaths" and angry at the girls' carelessness, he swore to destroy the heroines.
  • Tragic Villain: He only became a villain because he lost the only friends he ever had. After he escapes in "Halt and Catch Silico", Blossom and Bubbles even say that they feel sorry for him.
  • Troll: Devolves into this in “Halt and Catch Silico”, writing false articles to smear the girls’ reputation.
  • Tron Lines: His lair is packed to the brim with these. This seems to be a recurring theme with his technology.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Silico is surprisingly threatening for a villain in a comedy-oriented series.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left:
    • "Halt and Catch Silico": After his lair is destroyed, he escapes to plot another day.
    • "The Trouble With Bubbles": He tries to pull another one, but the Bubbles clone foils his escape attempt.
  • Villain Has a Point: Silico's point about the girls being careless and—though unintentionally—causing destruction whenever they save the world, is completely valid and understandable. The methods he resorts to, however, don't do him any favors.
  • Villainous Underdog: He lacks any real superpowers, but he does have a gift in robotics and is quite intelligent.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Physically speaking, he's a much weaker opponent than most of the antagonists the girls have faced, but he's an extremely skilled hacker and inventor.
  • We Will Meet Again: Proclaims this at the end of "Halt and Catch Silico".

A new student in adventurer gear that comes to Midway Elementary.


  • Adventurer Archaeologist: Claims she's an amateur one and looks the part. But subverted later as she always gets others to do her work.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Comes off as nice and friendly to the girls but once she gets the first of the idols, she quickly drops it.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Redheaded and tan.
  • Easily Forgiven: Had seemed that way in her second appearance with the most Blossom and Bubbles do is tell her "no" when she comes asking for help to find an artifact and Buttercup willingly tagging along (keep in mind she nearly killed their father in their first encounter). Subverted though, they've never trusted her since said first encounter and more than ready to stop her if need be.
  • Evil Redhead: Redheaded and a villain.
  • Expy: Essentially another version of Sedusa, being quite manipulative in trying to get others to do what she wants and likewise being two-faced.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: She looks like she feels bad for stealing the Otter, and gives the Girls some necklaces. Then she proves that she doesn't feel bad at all when the necklaces start to mind control the Girls.
  • Lack of Empathy: Cares for no one but herself and when she accidentally blows a hole in the ship transporting the second idol, which nearly sucks the Professor out of it, she orders the girls to get the idol over their father. Luckily, the girls' love for the Professor was stronger than her control and they manage to break free.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Tricks the girls into getting an idol for her, then wearing a necklace that will force them to do whatever she wants.
  • Outgambitted: In her second appearance, she actually has the gall to come to the Powerpuffs house asking for help to retrieve a dangerous artifact known as the Cube of Doom. Blossom and Bubbles instantly decline but Buttercup, bored of having nothing to do at the moment, accepts. In the end it turns out to be another manipulative ploy to get the artifact and leave Buttercup for dead. Except it turns out the girls didn't trust her the moment she came asking for help, revealing Jemmica had fallen for their ploy in order to get the artifact away from her and destroy it.
  • People Puppets: Tricks the girls into wearing necklaces that force them to obey her commands.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches down to her ankles.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She reveals that she's actually a centuries old being who was depowered in the past and stuck in the body of a young girl, leaving her to try to find any kind of magical artifact to regain her power.
  • Redhead In Green: She's a redhead and sports a greenish-yellow shirt and green earrings.
  • Smoke Out: She pulls a Villain: Exit, Stage Left in her second appearance with a smoke bomb.
  • The Sociopath: A textbook example. Cold, selfish, uncaring about anyone but herself, and extremely manipulative.

Jemoiré, Queen of the Storm

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2_6.png
The true form of Jemmica. Centuries ago she had tried to take over Townsville, but was defeated and depowered into a harmless girl. She survived through the ages trying to find any object that would allow her to regain her power and ultimately succeeds.
  • Arc Villain: She's the main villain of the "Total Eclipse of the Kart" special, where she reveals she's been searching for artifacts to restore her true form, putting her actions as Jemmica in a more sinister light.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": Once she gains her turn form, she rejects the name "Jemmica".
  • Does Not Like Shoes: She goes around barefoot.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Very grandiose in her speeches.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Surprisingly durable, she was flattened by a giant sentry that she had created and quickly recovered, no worse for wear.
  • One-Winged Angel: In this case, she's this to her Jemmica form.
  • Shock and Awe: As befitting of her title, she wields lighting.
  • Slasher Smile: Sports one no sooner than regaining her true form.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Once she regains her true form, she reveals herself to be a very dangerous threat. Effortlessly swatting aside the girls and Mojo when they try to confront her. She's only defeated because Mojo distracted her enough for the girls to get their hands on his freeze ray and blast her before she can retaliate.

     The Gnat

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_inline_orezmmv4tk1qma5xo_540.png
Voiced by: Jason Kaye

A mutated gnat that grew to large size after being bit by a radioactive human. He seeks revenge on the girls after being swatted by them in the past.


  • Big Bad Wannabe: He wants to be taken seriously as a villain but comes off more as an annoyance to the girls. There are some moments where he gets lucky, but is usually knocked aside fairly easily.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Being a larger-than-normal, mutated insect, this is a given.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Since he's just a common gnat, the girls don't really remember him in the slightest nor the whole swatting him deal.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Wants revenge for getting swatted when he was a normal-sized bug. Of course, it wasn't out of malice on the girls' part, since he's a bug and it's a pretty common reaction.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Oddly had some despite being a gnat.
  • Gonk: His design is repulsive, even for a giant insect. His face looks more like a goblin than an actual gnat.
  • Large Ham: Always goes for grandiose speeches to make himself look more threatening.
  • Pointy Ears: He has pointed ears.
  • Shaped Like Itself: He's a gnat...named Gnat. Doesn't get any simpler than that.
  • Sinister Schnoz: He has a rather large nose on him.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He hypes himself up as the girls' worst enemy, but they don't even remember him.

Monsters that were locked away in a chest that was in Professor Utonium's possession until Blossom accidentally released them.


  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Blossom tries to use her powers against them but nothing she does can hurt then.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: They're pretty much the evils of Pandora's Box.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: The first few monsters that come out are based on them such a Gluttony (a monster that eats all the food in the fridge), Pride (a monster taking selfies on her cell phone), Wrath (a monster that mistakes a TV for a mirror and breaks it) and Sloth (a two headed monster in a box).
  • Weaksauce Weakness: They can only be sent back into the chest by tricking them into saying ta leme (Greek for "See You Later").

  • Fat Bastard: Middle age has not helped his figure.
  • Our Centaurs Are Different: Not a real centaur, just someone that got his lower half turn into a horse by a science fair accident.
  • Punny Name: His name comes from the fact he's a janitor and a centaur.
  • Trouser Space: Somehow was able to fit his whole horse body into pants and look like a normal person. However this did somewhat tip Bubbles and Buttercup that he was the supposed "Ghost Horse" since he had a big butt.

Largo

Appears in: Largo
Voiced by: Eric Bauza

Yet another bear creature, this time one who is constantly mopey and depressed. While he has no ill-will towards anyone except Allegro, he inadvertently makes a rain cloud over Townsville which cause people to become depressed.


  • Anti-Villain: He doesn't mean to hurt anyone, but his negative aura is so powerful, it drives others into depression.
  • The Eeyore: He's always drowry and sad. As such he tends to bring down the mood. The girls aren't affected oddly enough.
  • Gray Rain of Depression: His coming forms one over Townsville and the rain causes people to become depressed. Doesn't seem so dangerous until the Mayor nearly decides to blow up the town because of it.
  • Literal Split Personality: The episode "Largo" reveals he's actually one half of a being named the Cosmic Bear with the other being Allegro. Both representing his positive and negative sides, Allegro being the cheery side who only wishes to make people happy (even if it's forced) and Largo representing the sadness and depression who has no motivation. Ultimately, Bubbles manages to get the two to accept each other which allows them to re-merge back into Cosmic Bear.
  • Punny Name: Largo is a music direction that slow in tempo, which, of course, is opposite of Allegro.
  • Villainy-Free Villain: He's not really malicious, he just has a negative aura about him that infects others.

     "Butterfingers" 

"Butterfingers"

Before and after the transformation.
Appears in: Blundercup

A boy that got caught in an accident with a butter fryer and caused his DNA to be merged with butter.


  • Blob Monster: Downplayed example, but it's essentially what his powers turned him into.
  • Blessed with Suck: While the butter powers not being all that flashy was a sticking point. He does mention that he was chased by dogs, mocked by people and, for some reason, targeted by angry mobs.
  • Grand Theft Me: The only good thing he finds about his power is that since the fryer was nuclear powered, it gave him the ability to switch bodies which he uses to try and take Buttercup's for himself.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Reveals he always wanted to be a superhero, but figures his powers were too lame.
  • I'm Melting!: What he feels all his powers were good for.
  • Jerk with the Heart of a Jerk: Despite the above however, he reveals he only likes superhero-ing for the action and fame, not to protect people. Even when Buttercup shows him the usefulness of his butter powers, he refuses to take back his body and tries to kill Buttercup to keep hers.
  • No Name Given: He isn't named in his appearance. Buttercup just dubs him "Butterfingers" when they fight.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Buttercup manages to beat him and take her body back but it wasn't shown what happened to him afterwards.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: He feels his powers are only good for melting rather than fighting evil, which is why he switches bodies with Buttercup. Ironically Buttercup gets a better handle on his powers and manages to beat him with it in their next encounter. Chiding him for not even trying to figure out the potential to use them properly.

     Salamander

  • Mundane Solution: Bubbles manages to stop his plan simply by stalling him until it was nightfall. No sun, no light for his magnifier to work.

A powerful magician.


  • Arc Villain: Of the Small World special.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He gains the Heartstones but since the girls earned them, they respond only to them. So when Lester tries to attack them with the stones, the power stops on the girls commands only. They quickly retake the Heartstones back and defeat him with their power.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Uses his magic to shrink things and collects them in snowglobes. He himself is shrunk down and put in a snowglobe.
  • Magicians Are Wizards: More or less in his case. He uses real magic rather then tricks despite having the motif of a stage wizard.
  • Near-Villain Victory: If Mojo hadn't returned, he certainly would've won as the girls were turned into toys and he still have Townsville trapped in a snowglobe.
  • Oh, Crap!: Once the girls re-take the Heartstones from him, he realizes they now outclass him in power and proceed to pound him.
  • One-Winged Angel: Once he gets the Heartstones, his outfit and hair changes.

  • Shrink Ray: Uses his magic to shrink Townsville to small size and put it in a snowglobe. Not the first city and monument he's done this to too.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He teams with Mojo claiming him to be a partner. But as soon as he gets the Heartstones, he kicks him to the curb first chance he gets. Comes back to bite him however as Mojo frees the girls who manage to defeat him.
