     The Gnome
Voiced by: Jess Harnell

A one-shot villain who appeared in the musical "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey". One of the few antagonists in the series that has died.

  • The Bad Guy Wins: Well, before his death, he did turn the world into the utopia he wanted.
  • Beard of Evil: His long pointy beard looks like a computer mouse arrow.
  • Big Bad: In "See Mee, Feel Me, Gnomey".
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: At first, he seems like a pretty nice guy wanting to help the girls live in a better place, but he's just using them for his selfish desire to rule the city.
  • The Chessmaster: He manipulated the girls into wanting him to make Townsville crime-free.
  • Control Freak: Forces the people of Townsville to follow his orders and become mindless drones.
  • Deal with the Devil: He offers the girls a Townsville without villains in exchange for their powers.
  • Driven to Suicide: Implied. His final words say that he died because he was willing to.

  • Hypocrite: Claims to be there to make Townsville a better place, but actually intended to conquer the place like any other villain.
  • Jerkass: Not a nice person at all.
  • Karmic Death: The girls have enough of his changes and confront him, which causes him to fall to his death.
  • Killed Off for Real: Ultimately he is killed by falling to his death, but actually, his dialogue beforehand indicates that this is only because he willed it so himself, making it a suicide.
    Gnome: Therefore, I conclude that I cannot exist in my...Utopian...mind!
  • Knight of Cerebus: Unlike all the other characters, he is the only one who mercilessly killed all the villains of the series and was successful to manipulate the girls, something no other villain has.
  • Knight Templar: He kills off all the villains, but turns Townsville into his own little utopia.
  • Light Is Not Good: He's a magical elf who wears a sparkling red cloak and sings a magic rock melody, but he's also a Manipulative Bastard who uses his skill to get what he wants.

  • Utopia Justifies the Means: Eliminating all the villains made him the new ruler of Townsville.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It's hard to see right away, but he's got green hair.

     Dick Hardly
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

A one-shot villain in the show, appearing only in the Season 4 episode "Knock it Off", he used to be Professor Utonium's college roommate. He discovers the formula for creating the Powerpuff Girls and abuses it to mass-produce Shoddy Knockoff Product versions of them on an assembly line. Despite being only a one shot villain, he manages to be one of the most evil and memorable characters on the show.

  • A Dick in Name: He's a horrendously self-centered and callous individual and his first name happens to be Dick. Blossom at one point even puts a noticeable emphasis on his first name when the Powerpuff Girls find out about his true nature.
  • Asshole Victim: At the end of the episode, he is destroyed along with the exploding factory he's inside of. With all the horrible things he did in the episode, his fate was well-deserved.
  • Bad Boss: Presumably, as he is seen constantly yelling at his workers to work faster and doesn't appear to care about them looking overworked. To say nothing of his treatment towards the Powerpuff Girls Xtreme...
  • Big Bad Friend: To the Girls and Professor Utonium. Though Utonium doesn't realize how horrible he really is until the end, although at the beginning of the episode when Hardly express his opinions to exploit the Girls for profit to him when Dick visits, it does seems Utonium starts to realized his true greedy and amoral nature all along that he failed to notice back in college.
  • Big Bad Slippage: As his profit grows, so does his greed and mental instability. Near the end of the episode, he shows some slight psychotic behavior and BY the end, he goes full rage mode trying to obtain more Chemical X, attempting to kill the Girls and enslave his former roommate to do so.
  • Big "NO!": Does this when his creations start killing him.
  • Big "YES!": Shouts this as he obtains the Chemical X needed to create his "girls."
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Pretends to be a friend to Professor Utonium when Dick is really a heartless scumbag who's only interested in using him for money.
  • Broken Pedestal: At the beginning of the episode where he debuts, when Dick expresses his ideals to exploit the Girls for profit, Utonium, who just expressed to the Girls how much of a great friend he was back in college (when in the flashbacks that depicted him to be anything but), finally happened to realize Dick's all along amoral nature and kicks him out.
  • Collapsing Lair: How he's eventually killed.
  • Consummate Liar: Pulls this off with the girls by claiming he's trying to help the world reduce crime when he just wants to profit off of their success.
  • Control Freak: And how. He overworks his employees only caring about getting results, and even having a perfect Buttercup copy melted for her excessive Chemical X so that his knock-offs are as cheap as possible.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: He runs a factory to create knock-offs of the Powerpuff Girls out of sociopathic greed.
  • Dark Is Evil: In his giant monster form.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Has tan skin and blonde hair.
  • Death Cry Echo: When his factory comes crashing down on him.
  • Dirty Coward: Once the Powerpuff Girls are going against him for the Chemical X.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In flashbacks, his lecherous, greedy and mooching off tendencies were made all too apparent.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: While Utonium loves and treasures his three creations, Dick saw the Powerpuff Girls Xtreme as money-making objects. As lampshaded by Utonium himself: "Old Dick may have gotten the formula right, but the only ingredient he forgot was love."
  • Evil Counterpart: To Professor Utonium, in that he's a man of science (though with slightly less "science"), but has none of the compassion and legitimate love the Professor has for the girls.
  • Evil Genius: Inverted. He appears to be one as he was a "professor of science", but flashbacks show that he was not even interested in science or intellectual things, rather he was a very ignorant man. Made even more apparent when he looks through the professor's mail and calls him a geek (albeit not in front of his face).
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Once he turns into a giant monster, his voice becomes deeper and menacing.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He'll keep a cheerful demeanor while he's either selling one of his products or insulting you to your face.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Emphasis on 'zero soul'.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: He was originally just a sleazy jerk who took advantage of Professor Utonium, but by the end of the episode, he's a total monster.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: His name is a rather obscene pun.
  • Greed: He wants money, and will use whatever means he can think of to get it.
  • Hate Sink: Nothing about Dick's True Colors are remotely sympathetic or Played for Laughs. It's telling something that while Mojo Jojo, Fuzzy Lumpkins, Princess Morbucks and even HIM had their fair shares of likable moments, this man is absolutely despicable and unsympathetic and one of the few villains that are seemingly Killed Off for Real.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: When the replicas saw the Professor's love for the real girls, they questioned why they weren't loved to Dick. He told them to back off. Simply put, it didn't end well for Dick.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Basically, in a show populated with evil creatures, demons and monsters, this man is easily the cruelest villain who ever appeared in the show.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: When he sees the girls, he outright calls them "things" in front of Professor Utonium while talking about making money off of them... which is what leads Utonium to finally realize what a jerkass he is.
  • It's All About Me: All he cares about is making tons of money, showing no empathy for who gets hurt. Instead, he enjoys hurting them.
  • Jerkass: By far the biggest jerk in the entire series. Even before he came up with his con, he was still a douche only putting on the nice facade when in front of the Professor.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He makes "Powerpuff Girls Xtreme" to market as elite crime fighting, when all he cares about is profiting off of them. He even deliberately makes them unstable just so he can sell more.
  • Karmic Death: He more than earned his fate. His creations end up killing him.
  • Killed Off for Real: His creations ripping him apart, being razed by fire, AND getting crushed by the collapsing lair. Will do.
  • Knight of Cerebus: An interesting case where he's initially harmless, but gradually becomes a much darker character.
  • Lack of Empathy: Absolutely no empathy at all. The first thing he does when he sees the Powerpuff Girls , he starts talking to Professor Utonium about making money out of creating more of them. (Note also that he's talking about his own former roommate's children.)
  • Laughing Mad: Had it after he achieved to create his own Powerpuff Girls.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Tricks the girls into giving him Chemical X so that he can make his own knockoffs of the girls. Naturally, the Powerpuffs catch on to the deception once they see one of his commercials on TV.
  • Meaningful Name: He is both obnoxious and perverted.
  • Millionaire Playboy: His main characterization. He's just interested in money and women.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: His creations realize that he doesn't love them and turn on him, ultimately killing him by bringing his own factory down on his head.
  • Money Fetish: This, along with his greed, is a motivation for his crimes.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: At first. Subverted when he became a giant monster.
  • One-Winged Angel: After swallowing a whole vial of Chemical X.
    "Whew! You know, for a second there, I thought I was going to turn into a monste-"
  • Psychopathic Man Child: In addition to being greedy, self-centered, and having no remorse for hurting people to get what he wants, the scene where he puts Chemical X in his mouth is reminiscent of children with mouthfuls of food they weren't supposed to eat trying to deny responsibility.
  • Punny Name: His name is a pun on the fact that he is... well, a jerk.
  • Sadist: Proves to be one when Utonium offers to be a slave to make more Chemical X to free the girls and Dick just decides to make him a slave and kill the girls anyways.
  • Shadow Archetype: To Professor Utonium. While the Professor loves and treasures his three creations, Dick regards the Powerpuff Girls Xtreme as expendable and only good for making money, even ordering his workers to melt down one of the clones for its Chemical X when he sees that she turned out to be a perfect copy of Buttercup.
  • Slowly Slipping Into Evil: At first, he wasn't much of a threat, but just a selfish jerk. However, his obsession with money and Chemical X, indeed, turned him into a really repulsive man.
  • The Sociopath: He stands out even in a world of villains with apetite for chaos, destruction, or world domination. He's anything but sensitive, and cares about no one but himself and making money.
  • Take a Third Option: After his One-Winged Angel, he traps the girls and plans to suck all the Chemical X out of them. Professor Utonium offers to work for him and make more Chemical X for the rest of his life if he lets them go, but Dick instead decides that he would rather kill the girls and keep the professor as his slave.
  • Teeny Weenie: His name is a reference to this, however, it is unknown if he actually has one.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Sooner or later his own creations (super-powered beings) would go against him...
  • Unfortunate Name: His name is basically one big innuendo.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Despite only appearing in one episode, he is easily the most evil character in the whole series, easily eclipsing HIM in terms of total vileness.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Thanks to the "Powerpuff Girls Xtreme", his notoriety gives him the facade of a hero who wishes to fight against global crime. But in reality, he's just a purely selfish man whose treatment towards his own creations is absolutely despicable.
  • Would Hurt a Child: If trying to drain them of their Chemical X, slowly killing them wasn't evidence enough.

     Femme Fatale
Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

The third notable female villain in the series, next to Princess Morbucks and Sedusa, despite being a minor villain. She only appears in the episode "Equal Fights" as a man-bashing Straw Feminist who only stole coins with Susan B. Anthony's portrait on them.

  • Badass Normal: Doesn't have any special powers, but she can still kick people's butts.
  • Berserk Button: Don't give her normal dollars. Give her Susan B. Anthony coins or else.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The Blonde to Sedusa's Brunette and Princess Morbucks' Redhead.
  • Dark Action Girl: A one-shot female antagonist who strives on Girl Power.
  • Female Misogynist: Goes hand in hand with Straw Hypocrite below; it's made pretty obvious that Femme Fatale only cares about women when it suits her own needs (like getting the girls to let her go). If it doesn't, she turns on them (like the bank teller, the cop and the teenager).
  • Hate Sink: Her whole character is designed around making her unlikable.
  • Hoist by Their Own Petard: When she gets a lecture from the girls about Equal Rights.
  • Institutional Apparel: Ends up in a striped prison uniform, complaining about how horizontal stripes make her look fat.
  • Jerkass: She's very rude towards men and basically anyone that gets in her way.
  • Knight Templar: Sort of, but instead of being sincere-but-extremist about her beliefs, she mostly uses her beliefs as an excuse to get away with crime.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Manipulated the girls into thinking that equal rights means special treatment for women and to be sexist against men.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name does relate to her role as a feminist—it also doubles as Bilingual Bonus, because "Femme Fatale" literally means "fatal woman" in French.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches to below her butt.
  • Straw Feminist: A controversial one. Interestingly, she was created and conceptualized by a real life feminist.
  • Straw Hypocrite: Women were not spared from her crimes. She robbed one female bank manager's establishment, broke a female cop's arm, and copied a teenage girl's hairstyle.
    • Also, she steals only Susan B. Anthony coins because she sees Susan B. Anthony, who struggled for the right to vote, as a symbol of women's rights, and she is...but as the Girls point out, Susan B. Anthony was willing to risk being imprisoned for breaking the law for what she believed in, while Femme Fatale uses her womanhood as a shield to get away with hurting people. Femme Fatale steals Susan B. Anthony coins, but she doesn't even know who she was.
  • Villain Has a Point: Though it was only to persuade the girls to free her, she wasn't wrong in claiming female superheroes generally don't get the same recognition male superheroes do, and heroines like Supergirl and Batgirl are essentially little more than extensions of their male counterparts (Superman and Batman, respectively). Blossom tries to counter by bringing up Wonder Woman, but only proves Femme's point when she can't think of more heroines with the same fame and recognition.

     Mr. Mime
Voiced by: N/A (Only speaks as Rainbow the Clown, voiced by Tom Kenny)

Appears only in the episode "Mime for a Change." Mr. Mime is what you get when you douse the local smiling birthday entertainer Rainbow the Clown in bleach.

Has nothing to do with the Pokemon of the same name.

  • Deliberately Monochrome: He has the ability to drain color and sound from anything he touches or steps on, and he himself appears purely black and white.

  • Face–Heel Turn => Heel–Face Turn: He starts off as a happy clown, but becomes evil when bleached. After he is cured, he returns to being a clown.
  • Leitmotif: Slow, sinister circus style music.
  • Misblamed: The reason why he turned evil in the first place is because a truck crashed and covered him in bleach. Granted, the girls didn't know about it.
  • Not Himself: Yet when he's turned back to normal, the girls still beat him up and send him to jail. Issues with Rainbow's evil alter-ego were apparently settled since he was seen at the Powerpuff Girls' birthday party.
  • The Power of Rock: The only way to defeat him and change him back to normal, apparently.
  • Sensory Overload: Bright color and loud sounds seem physically painful for Mr. Mime, which is why he sets out to remove both from all of Townsville.
  • Split-Personality Takeover: This happens when Rainbow gets doused in bleach, he is transformed into evil and wants to take color away.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Rainbow's color draining powers are exclusive to his Mr. Mime persona.
  • Tragic Villain: Considering that he was a good clown turned evil. Until he gets back to good clown again.
  • The Voiceless: And when he drains the color, he also drains the sound.
  • Walking Wasteland: He drains the color, sound, and general life from everything around him with just his touch or step.

     Boogie Man

  • The Cameo: He can be seen in the redone intro for "The Powerpuff Girls Rule".
  • Gratuitous Disco Sequence: He's a monster with a disco theme and he blocks the sun out with a giant disco ball.

  • The Night That Never Ends: His master plan was deploying a giant disco ball to block out the sun and keep the world in perpetual darkness so he and his fellow monsters could stay on the surface forever.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Blame it on the Boogie!"
  • Punny Name: He's the lead bogeyman, and he and his cohorts utilize a disco theme.
  • Scary Black Man: His overall design hints at this. It helps that his voice actor is Kevin Michael Richardson.
  • Sinister Shades: Shades that make him look funky and scary.
  • Things That Go "Bump" in the Night: And he's their leader, at that.

    The Smiths
Narrator: Uh-oh, looks like evil runs in the family.
Harold Smith Voiced by: Jeff Bennett
Mary Anne and Julie Smith Voiced by: Kath Soucie
Bud Smith Voiced by: Christine Cavanaugh

Appear only in the episodes "Supper Villain" and "Just Desserts". The Smiths were an average family living next door to the Powerpuff Girls. Harold Smith had become sickened by his routine life and menial job at a mustard factory. Inspired by Mojo Jojo, he began to embrace the life of a supervillain. Unfortunately, he chose to do this on the night his wife Mary Anne invited Professor Utonium and the PPGs to dinner. Everything eventually devolved into a food fight, and the police arrest Harold. Mary Anne, however, put a lot of effort into the dinner, and upon seeing it get ruined, she vowed to destroy the Powerpuff Girls.

  • Berserk Button: Do not ruin Mary Anne's dinner. It's eventually not just pressed, but stabbed in about 100 times.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Mary Anne is the only one in the family who has tan skin for some reason, and she also has blonde hair.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Bud.
    Bud: Okay Dad, let's talk about your amazing day. How many mustard jars did you fill?
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Their whole scheme is to get back at the girls and the Professor and try to kill them because they ruined Mary Anne's dinner.
  • Drop the Hammer: Mary Anne, with meat tenderizers.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Bud is randomly called "Mike" at one point.
  • Evil Is Petty: Pretty much. Harold only became a villain out of spite to how "perfect" the Utoniums were while he was stuck in a rut where nothing exciting seemed to happen. Mary Anne turned just due to the fact that the Powerpuff Girls ruined her dinner. Julie (their daughter) was mad over PPGs losing her jumping jacks and Bud...well Bud's just an emo teen so he didn't take much convincing. In Mary Anne's case, the girls even tell her point-blank how stupid her reasons for turning evil and trying to kill them were.
  • Face–Heel Turn: The whole family turns evil after Harold's breakdown.
  • It's All About Us: Pretty much their real reason for getting revenge over their petty problems.
  • The Family That Slays Together: Not that they get very far.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Mary Anne when Harold reunites with her at the beginning of "Just Deserts".
  • Revenge: See above.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: Harold, who wears a Blankman-like uniform. This makes him stand out when the rest of the family reveal their own supervillain uniforms.
    Harold: Oh, criminy. How come you guys get cool supervillain stuff?
    Mary Anne: We've had more time to prepare, dear.
  • Stepford Smiler: Mary Anne. She acts all happy when the professor and girls come to visit, but she's often nervous that her dinner will get ruined.
  • Super Family Team: A villainous family team.
  • Superheroes Wear Capes: Both Harold and Bud wear capes.
  • Teens Are Monsters: Bud was never nice to begin with, but his motivation for helping the family destroy the girls is that he hates everything.
  • Thememobile: The Smith family minivan.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Bud has green hair.

     Major Man
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

A temporary hero who showed up in Townsville who garnered more attention than the girls.

  • Alliterative Name: Major Man. Get it?
  • Badass Boast: I am the crusher of crime! The demolisher of disorder! And the eliminator of evil! I am... Major Man!!!
  • Badass Cape: Take a good look at it.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Or in this case, a jerk in superhero's clothing. He pretends to be a hero to get admiration.
  • Captain Ersatz: Looks a lot like Johnny Bravo when he lets go of the Cool Shades and gets a lot of steroids, they're even voiced by the same person. Although their personalities are very much antithesis, Johnny is a shameless womanizer with occasional golden heart, Major Man is a selfish, glory-seeking jerk in a fabricated super hero persona. It even led to him being voiced by Johnny's VA in the Latin American dub.
  • Dick Dastardly Stops to Cheat: Although his heroic acts turn out to be fake, his superpowers appear to be real. He likely could have been a perfectly legitimate superhero, had he not been obsessed with fame and glory.
  • Dirty Coward: Upon nearly being eaten by a monster, he implores the Girls to save him.
  • Dub Name Change: His name was changed to Mastodont in the Swedish dub of the show.
  • Engineered Heroics: Every "crime" he ever stopped was something he orchestrated, either by having actors play the roles or bribing petty thugs.
  • Evil Hero: He sets up dangerous traps for people, only so he can save them and reclaim himself as a "hero". He admitted this in the end of the episode, leaving everyone in a shock, and never faked himself as a hero again.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: He is able to solve every problem that pops up before the PPG can, because he sets up all the problems in advance!
  • Hypocritical Humour / Moral Dissonance: He is exposed when a Godzilla Expy attacks the city and he can't deal with it because he didn't cause the problem in the first place, so the Powerpuff Girls step in and save the day — and it turns out they asked the monster to arrive in the first place to help expose Major Man!
  • "I Am Great!" Song: The "Major Man" song.
  • Jerkass: He causes problems in advance to fix them just for praise, showing no remorse for anyone effected.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He wasn't a hero for good intentions, he just wanted to be famous.
  • Kick the Dog: His true colors are exposed when he literally does this to a dog (so he can then "save" the dog from a possible accident).
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: He has a big jaw and he's a "superhero" on top of that.
  • Sucksessor: He becomes this to the girls; at first Townsville replaces the girls with this guy, but then the girls expose him as a fraud who's only good at being a superhero when he sets up problems to solve in advance.
  • Superman Substitute: While not a true hero, Major Man IS an expy of Superman.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: His upper body is obviously bigger than his lower body.

Voiced by: Frank Welker

  • Back from the Dead: Was killed in a magic trick gone wrong and came back as a zombie to terrorize Townsville.
  • Berserk Button: Anything resembling the little girl that ruined his career.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: "You laughed at me, but now, Revenge!" (Although technically his revenge is for the fact that them laughing at him indirectly caused his death, but since that was partially his own fault it's still this trope.)
  • Everything's Deader with Zombies: Of course.
  • Freudian Excuse: A magician who died and came back a power hungry zombie, getting revenge on all humans for for laughing at his death.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His appearance is scarier than most other villains'.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: A performing magician who came back as zombie with magic powers that allow him to do whatever the plot needs him to.
  • Punny Name: His stage name, Al Lusion. His alias of Abracadaver also counts, being a play on "abracadabra" and "cadaver".
  • Revenge: He rose from the grave to seek vengeance against those who laughed at him on the day he died.
  • Stage Magician: His career and as a magic themed villain.

     Mike Brikowski
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

A lazy cop who gets fired for that reason and tries to kill the girls out of revenge.

  • Bad Cop/Incompetent Cop: After being fired, he managed to get Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup in a trap made of an air tank filled with knockout gas, a crane, reinforced chains (made by Mojo Jojo), and a vat of acid within the police impound. His own fellow officers busted him.
  • Big Eater: He loves to eat a lot of doughnuts.
  • Dirty Cop: In addition to being lazy and incompetent, the inside of his apartment strongly hints that he is a shoplifter—all of his possessions still have price tags on them.
  • Driven by Envy: Probably his motivation from the start. He already thought that the girls end up getting the job done and take all the glory before the police even have a chance. It's also implied from viewing a news report that shows them in action while also ridiculing him for just sleeping in his car that his revenge stems from how much better they are than he'll ever be.
  • Donut Mess with a Cop: Usually seen snacking on donuts while the other cops in the force are dealing with a problem. The chief even makes him turn in one alongside his badge and sunglasses, when he also let him keep his gun "as a souvenir".
  • From Bad to Worse: As Blossom puts it:
    Blossom: "You're not a good cop gone bad. You're a bad cop gone worse!"
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Considering his Small Name, Big Ego, he was pretty much jealous of all the glory the girls end up getting. And that's before he lost his job.
  • Hate Sink: He is lazy, irresponsible, short-tempered, hypocritical, hates the Powerpuff Girls for very petty reasons and was more than willing to murder them with glee. And unlike other villains, he has zero likable or cool traits.
  • Hypocrite: He complains about the Powerpuff Girls stealing all the work from hard-working cops, when all he ever did was sleep and eat donuts.
  • Irony:
    • The only time he does anything of worth is after he's fired from his job and sets about trying to get revenge on the girls whom he feels costed it. Otherwise he lives off the perks of being a police officer with none of the work.
    • For all his talk about the girls taking away the jobs of the Townvilles police. It's them that come to the girls rescue without a moments hesitation and bust him (granted they failed to stop the girls from being dunked in acid which luckily they were immune to. But still ended up proving Mike's assessment wrong regardless.)
  • Jerkass: He's lazy and irresponsible and likes to think he's better than everyone else.
  • Lazy Bum: Why he was let go in the first place. He never did his job, just ate donuts and slept in his squad car.
  • Misplaced Retribution: He tries to kill the girls because he felt that it was their fault that he lost his job.
  • Never My Fault: When he gets fired from his position, he blames the girls for being so competent at their job, and never stops and thinks that it was his fault that he got fired for his laziness. He also pretty much blames the rest of the police for not doing a good enough job when the girls get the credit they deserve (and by that he means he deserves it).
  • Police are Useless: Out of the police officers, he is the most incompetent and lazy of them all, which is why he got fired. Also inverted a bit, the police are actually trying to do their jobs but run into problems that are a bit much for them requiring the girls' help. However he just stays in his his car, dozing away while the action is going on and not lifting a finger to help.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He likes to think that he is better than the other officers, when in reality, he's far worse than the other officers. He's also pretty much jealous of the girls' success, and probably believes that killing them will prove that he's better than them.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Donuts.

     Max Von Nitrate 

A silent movie actor who fell into obscurity because people found his voice ridiculous once he started appearing in sound films. He now wants to take Professur Utonium's voice so he can get his fame back.

  • Anti-Villain: He was one a famous silent movie actor, but when film started using sound, his career was ruined since his voice is high and grating. So he just wants Professor Utonium's voice and means no real harm.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: His last name especially.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Stops being a villain at the end of the episode, when he goes back to being an actor, and has his lines dubbed.

     Lenny Baxter AKA Lenny the Comic Book Geek 
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

A one-shot antagonist who only appears in "Collect Her". He is an obsessive comic book geek and toy collector, who owns every conceivable piece of Powerpuff Girls merchandise in mint condition, and wants to add the real deal to his collection. While he has no superpowers, he was able to lure the girls into his room, capture them and trap them in toy packaging, which prompted the entire town to hunt him down and ruin his mint condition toy collection in front of him in order to get him to free the girls, and he was promptly jailed.

  • Badass Normal: He manages to trap the Powerpuff Girls without any kind of powers.
  • Bald of Evil: More unpleasant than evil, but he has lost his hair on top.
  • Big "NO!": Lets one of these out when the Professer tears open one of his packages.
  • Big "NEVER!": When the Professer interrogates him to know where the girls are, Lenny gives him this, which prompts the townspeople to start ruining his collection, much to his terror.
  • The Cameo: Appears on a few segments of Cartoon Cartoon Fridays to give some trivia about the show.
  • Collector of the Strange: He has a large mint condition collection of every piece of Powerpuff Girls merchandise available. When there's no merchandise left for him to collect, he resorts to stealing the PPGs' personal belongings (like Bubbles' drawings and crayons, Buttercup's punching meat and Blossom's hairclip, and even the portrait of them and the Professor and the Hotline), but still isn't pleased. He's only satisfied with it when he adds the actual girls to it. Blossom and Buttercup are noticably creeped out by it when they enter his room (although Bubbles thinks it's cool).
  • Expy: Of The Comic Book guy.
  • Fanboy: Of the Powerpuff Girls. His obsession with adding them to his toy collection leads to him luring them into his room by calling for help, then capturing them and trapping them in toy packaging.
  • Fat Bastard: He's fat and he's an all around unpleasant, pseudo-intellectual personality.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: The glasses only make him creepier.
  • Harmless Villain: Despite being able to lure the Powerpuff girls into his room and capture them, he has no powers at all, and he doesn't even try to put up a fight when the people of Townsville confront him.
  • Jerkass: He belittles a kid for not having the same beliefs in toys that he has.
  • Loony Fan: Doesn't see anything wrong with capturing the girls and imprisoning them in packaging.
  • Manchild: True to his ultra-fanboy nature, Lenny is an all around immature personality. He is very prideful of his collection of Powerpuff Girls merchandise, and he breaks down at the very sight or sound of a mint condition item being opened.
  • Near-Villain Victory: For as much as incompetent he is, Lenny actually accomplished what a hyper-intelligent monkey, a gang of misfits, and other super villains could not: Defeating and capturing the Powerpuff Girls. He's only defeated when the other townspeople rallied to raid his hideout and Professor Utonium forced him to forfeit when he rallied the kids to open up his collections in front of him.
  • Psychotic Man Child: He captured the actual Powerpuff Girls and trapped them in packaging just so he could complete his collection.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: After he and townsvilles kids tear apart his collection and leave him near catatonic, The Professor gives him one of these to him, without even raising his voice.
    Professor Utonium:"Let me tell you something, Lenny. You may have all of the toys, all of the merchandise, all of the so-called “collector’s value.” But one thing you don’t have, Lenny, is true fandom. For a true fan wouldn't want to selfishly keep the girls to himself. A true fan would want them to be free."
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: His kidnapping of the Powerpuff Girls prompts the entire town to go after him; fortunately, nothing gets violent, as the Professor just has their kids destroy his collection in front of him in order to get him to free the girls.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He loses it when the Professor and others start destroying his mint condition collector items, and he finally gives in and frees the Girls.

Voiced by: Phyllis Diller

  • Pungeon Master: She frequently makes makeup-based puns.
  • Punny Name: Made ironic that she's a fan of puns.
  • White-Dwarf Starlet: Formerly the greatest name in make up fashion, once her fad look became old news, her empire crumbled into oblivion, and she decided to become a super villain to enforce her trashy look on everyone permanently.

  • Evil Genius: Effortlessly and flawlessly outpredicts the Powerpuff Girls' attempts to stop his assault, including untested attack patterns. It got to the point that they teamed up with Mojo Jojo in order to outmaneuver him.

  • Not So Invincible After All: When Mojo has beaten him up and made him fear him to the point of leaving Townsville or possibly earth forever.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: The Alien is able to perfectly thwart all of the girls' attempts to defeat him. The moment the Powerpuff Girls and Mojo Jojo gains momentum in stopping his plans, he personally comes out of his spaceship, and delivers a swift and terrifying rampage over Townsville.

The Alien proceeds to effortlessly blast and defeat the girls with one attack, and ruthlessly subjugate Townsville.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He can effortlessly destroy Townsville with a wave of his hand, even create a devestating fire tornado with some form of psychic abilities.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After Mojo defeats him and forces him to say he is the most evil.

  • Orochi: A red, three-headed snake beast appears in 'Octi Evil' episode.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Some of them resemble dragons.
  • Pterosoarer: One monster in 'Bubblevicious' has traits of this.

  • Turtle Power: One monster such as in 'Octi Evil' looks like one.
  • Visual Pun: In the episode "Curses", the Powerpuff Girls encounter a giant monster that speaks in hardly anything other than swears (represented as mumbling gibberish) and has a toilet for a head. He is both figuratively and literally a potty mouth.

However, Mojo's new minions are intelligent to compete with their own plans to rule the world. Fortunately, the Powerpuff Girls arrive to defeat the primates near the end of the movie.

In one episode of the sixth season, there's one monkey named Mopey Popo, who was rejected when a gorilla damages his brain. Mopey wants to help Mojo, but proves to be a nuisance. Eventually, Mopey somehow captures the Powerpuff Girls, but decides to free them and quit being evil.

  • Animal Gender-Bender: Averted with Ojo Tango, who has flanges like a male orangutan.
  • Badass Army: In the movie, they've almost succeed in destroying Townsville.
  • The Brute: Rocko Socko is a strong brute.
  • Curse Cut Short:
    Hota Wata: I, Hota Wata, am boiling mad, for you are all wet behind the ears. So I shall unleash a scalding torrent to drown you out, for I don't give a—
    Mojo: Watch your mouth!
  • Cymbal-Banging Monkey: Cha-Ching Cha-Ching is one.
  • Drill Tank: What Killa Drilla uses to attack Townsville.
  • The Eeyore: Mopey Popo definitely lives up to the "Mopey" in his name.
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: Not in this case, since they are evil.
  • Evil vs. Evil: In the middle of the movie, they all get into a disagreement over which of them should conquer Townsville.
  • Giant Wall of Watery Doom: Hota Wata's boiling hot wave of water.
  • Humongous Mecha: A number of them use this. Particularly Ojo Tango, Baboon Kaboom, and Killa Drilla.
  • Killer Gorilla: Rocko Socko is a gorilla and very violent. As is Buttso Bango. A gorilla (possibly Rocko Socko) was also responsible for damaging Mopey Popo's brain when he broke out of his glass container and went on a brief rampage.
  • Killer Rabbit: Tonsa Muncha, a pygmy marmoset who bites people.
  • Large Ham: Baboon Kaboom speaks very loudly and dramatically when he appears.

  • Maniac Monkeys: Monkeys who are evil.

  • Minion with an F in Evil: Mopey Popo due to having his brain ripped out of his head by a gorilla.
  • Nervous Wreck: Blah-Blah Blah-Blah speaks in stutters.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Hacha Chacha is a very obvious caricature of Jimmy Durante in voice and appearance. His name is even a reference to Durante's Catchphrase.
  • No-Sell: Hota Wata is immune to the boiling hot temperatures from the wave of water he uses to flush out the city.
  • Poke the Poodle: Hacha Chacha's scheme is to spread banana peels everywhere so that people would slip on them.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Mopey Popo was not present in the movie. Mainly because he was flushed into the sewers before Mojo could set his plan into action.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Along with the standard chimpanzees, orangutans, gorillas, and baboons, the army also has many seldom-seen simians such as lar gibbonsnote , Japanese macaquesnote , black-headed spider monkeysnote , proboscis monkeysnote , mandrillsnote , and pygmy marmosetsnote . Mopey Popo appears to be a barbary macaque.
  • Theme Naming: Like Mojo Jojo, a lot of them have names consisting of two-syllable rhymes.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It isn't explained what happened to them after the events of the movie.

     Roach Coach 
Voiced by: Roger L. Jackson

One of the first villains introduced in the show. Roach Coach uses a whistle to summon an army of cockroaches to attack Townsville.

     The Broccoloids 
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

A race of broccoli aliens who try to invade Earth.

  • Alien Invasion: They invade the Earth with brainwashing spores that spread to the vegetables causing those who eat them to become immobile.
  • Eaten Alive: The girls defeat them by eating them, with help from all the children of Townsville.
  • No-Sell: The girls' normal attacks only temporarily stun them as they grow back their limbs immediately after.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: They can regrow their limbs if they lose them, but one can just eat them to defeat them.

     The Sandman 
Voiced by: Greg Eagles

A one-shot antagonist in Dream Scheme, the Sandman is tasked with putting everyone in the world to sleep each night. Unfortunately, since half the world is awake at any given moment, doing his job means he can never catch so much as a wink of sleep himself. He decides to remedy this by putting everyone on earth into an eternal slumber so he can finally catch some sleep, and the girls have to wake him up and convince him to undo the change.

  • Anti-Villain: He isn't evil at all; poor guy just wants to get some sleep for a change, and doesn't even realize he's doing any harm.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Has purple skin.
  • The Cobbler's Children Have No Shoes: As mentioned, this is the reason why he puts everyone into an eternal sleep to begin with: So he can finally get a good night's shut-eye himself.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Uses his magic sand to put others to sleep.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Most of his dialogue is given to the tune of various nursery rhymes. The entire episode's dialogue is given almost entirely in rhyme as well.
  • Scare 'em Straight: How the girls make him undo the eternal sleep.
  • Sinister Schnoz: Has a large blue nose.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Played with. His hair is white from age, but he himself is not evil.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He hardly ever gets any sleep, because people are making so much noise at night, and he has lived like that in years. This has caused him to attempt to make the whole town sleep forever, so that he can finally sleep himself.

     The Robbing Leech 
A one-shot antagonist in the episode "Headsuckers Moxy". A master thief with the ability to drain a person's memories with his leech-like mouth. He goes on a robbing spree throughout Townsville, but is ultimately defeated when the girls trap him by using the Mayor as bait.
  • Actually Not a Vampire: His powers make him seem like one, but he's actually a leech.
  • Affably Evil: While he never talks, his mannerisms imply this. After robbing the Sapphire Sultan of his jewel which he kept in his stomach, he tips his hat in a polite "thank you" gesture.
  • Ambiguously Human: It's hard to tell if he's a superpowered human or something else entirely.
  • Animal Motifs: The leech, obviously.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He's a skilled master thief and he rocks a pretty nice suit. Man's got taste.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Implied. The girls's plan was to lure the Leech to them by using the Mayor as bait, under the belief that the Mayor is too dumb for the Leech to drain any information out of him. However, after the Leech is defeated, the Mayor ends up with a case of memory loss, implying the Leech did drain some information out of him. That or the Mayor really is that dumb, and is simply confused with what just happened anyway.
  • Bald of Evil: More like Balding of Evil. He has hair, just not on the top of his head.
  • Defiant to the End: Despite being Out-Gambitted by and lured into a trap by the Girls, the Robbing Leech's response is to attack the girls and fight with everything he has.
  • Lamprey Mouth: Has a sucker-mouth with a ring of fangs, though this is more akin to a lamprey than a leech.
  • Made of Iron: During the fight with the girls, he gets sucker punched by Buttercup and sent flying into the wall, only to get right back on his feet. Considering Buttercup has Super Strength, that's saying something.
  • Meaningful Name: The girls named him the Robbing Leech due to his memory draining abilities and his leech-like mouth.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a hat to go with the suit.
  • No Mouth: Subverted. He does have a mouth, but when his mouth is closed, it makes it look like this at first glance.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: What makes the Robbing Leech so creepy is how little we know about him. While most of the villains in the show have at least some semblance of a backstory, he doesn't. There's little to no information on who he is, how he got his powers, or for that matter is he even human. He more or less is just is.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: The "Robbing Leech" was a name the girls made up for him. It's unknown if he calls himself that or if he even has a name beyond that.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: He's roughly the same size as the girls and the Mayor, but can overpower larger targets with ease.
  • Shout-Out: To Robin Leech, best known as the host of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.
  • The Spook: See Nothing Is Scarier above.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: Either subverted or double subverted. The girls's plan was to lure the Leech to them by using the Mayor as bait, under the belief that the Mayor is too dumb for the Leech to drain any information out of him. However, the reason the Leech was defeated was he had already drained the information out of him, as the Mayor ends up with memory loss at the end of the episode. However, it's implied that the Mayor actually doesn't have memory loss, and is just being his dumb old self who doesn't get it. Not to mention the Leech apparently gets exhausted and collapses before getting all, if any of the information he needed.
  • Vampiric Draining: His main superpower. He can use his leech like mouth to drain a person's memories, allowing him to use the information to steal their valuables. The victim is left with an imprint of his mouth on their heads, memory loss, and severe headaches as a side effect.
  • Villainous Valor: When you're willing to take on three superpowered girls who regularly defeat giant monsters despite having no powers beyond your ability to drain memories, you must have this trope.
  • The Voiceless: He never speaks or makes any sound other than the screech he makes when he's attacking. It's unknown if he even can talk.

     The Powerbluffs 
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett (Crooks 1 and 3), Kevin Michael Richardson (Crook 2)

A trio of thugs that impersonate the Powerpuff Girls after several failed attempts at robbery.

Voiced by: Corey Burton

An oblivious burglar who once tried to rob the Powerpuff Girls' house. The Girls would have dealt with him easily, but Professor Utonium needed to sleep for tomorrow's dissertation, and they didn't want to risk waking him up.

  • Affably Evil: Even if he is robbing their house, the burglar does act nice to the girls, at least before he finds out their true nature.
  • Beard of Evil: He has a little goatee.
  • In the Hood: He wears a black hood over his head.
  • Harmless Villain: He's not really much of a threat, being an ordinary burglar and all, but he ends up getting knocked out by Professor Utonium while he's still asleep.
  • Stupid Crooks: To reiterate his main description, he tried to rob the Powerpuff Girls. Lampshaded by Buttercup when she asks who in their right mind would rob the Powerpuff Girls and by the narrator when he says that he feels sorry for him after he opts to rob Mojo Jojo's volcano lair.

    The Fluffy Bunch 
Fluffy Kitty voiced by: Catherine Cavadini
Cuddly Bunny voiced by: Elizabeth Daily

Tropes Applying To All Three Of Them

  • Greed: The Bunch is obsessed with having rare things.
  • Hates Being Touched: They hate to be hugged. The Girls take advantage of this by luring them into a room full of little kids wanting to hug them.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: They are cute animals. They even take advantage of how cute they are to convince others to not get them in trouble.
  • Talking Animal: They are animals that can talk.
  • Terrible Trio: Three critters that like to steal things.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Beautiful!: They use their cute appearance to not receive any punishment for felonies.
