    The Mayor of Townsvile 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mayor_1546.jpg
Voiced by: Tom Kenny (main series), Jim Cummings (What a Cartoon! shorts)

The mayor of Townsville wears a trademark hat, monocle, and huge bushy mustache, and is referred to only as "Mayor" (even campaigning with the slogan "vote for Mayor for Mayor"). He is neither bright nor mature, and relies heavily on his secretary and personal assistant, Ms. Sara Bellum, to do the real work around the place. The Mayor seems to have his job only because no one bothers to run against him; The Narrator once refers to him as "The Pity of Townsville." Also, he really like pickles, but does NOT like people wearing his hat.


  • Adaptational Badass: In the 2016 series, he is badass enough to tame giant monsters with pickles, and he has saved the Girls at least twice.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Heavily relies on Ms. Bellum to do work, and acts very childish, so he may be mentally impaired.
  • Balloon Belly: In "Candy is Dandy", he gets one after eating a lot of candy.
  • Berserk Button:
    • In "Impeach Fuzz", Fuzzy Lumpkins finds out the hard way what happens when you wear the Mayor's hat.
    • As seen in in the film he really doesn't like it if you destroy his favorite pickle stand, and wanted to have the girls run out of town when they accidentally did so during their game of tag.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He hulked out when Fuzzy wore his hat in "Impeach Fuzz".
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He rallied Townsville to tracking down Lenny in 'Collect Her'.
  • Black Bead Eyes: Has black dot eyes.
  • Butt-Monkey: Although he does put himself in most of the situations because he acts like an idiot.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He tends to be living in his own little world with a limited connection to reality.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite being portrayed as incompetent and immature, the Mayor has shown to have the potential of being one of the most badass mayors in existence:
    • In the episode "Him Diddle Riddle", the Mayor successfully decodes Him's riddle "Where is boiling and freezing at the same time?" as coordinates in a matter of seconds through rapid explaination to the trio of dumbstruck girls, along with a more simple alternative.
      Mayor: "... Or it could be there's an ice cream truck on fire somewhere. Have a nice day, girls!"
      The Girls: [Beat] [Fly off to the location]
    • Also in the episode "Impeach Fuzz", Villain of the Week Fuzzy Lumpkins becomes the new mayor. The Mayor doesn't really care about this, being too devastated at having lost the election, until he learns Fuzzy is wearing his hat and accepts a challenge to wrestle him for the hat and his title as mayor again. He's easily tossed around by Fuzzy and his kin until during a pin, Fuzzy mockingly puts the Mayor's hat on in front of him. Suddenly, the tables were turned in a matter of a second.
    Mayor: "FUZZY! No one wears my hat!" [Suddenly rips his vest off, becoming RIPPED]
    Mayor: "Let's get it on."
  • The Ditz: He makes Bubbles look intelligent. One notable example is in one episode he puts a CD on a record player and starts snapping his fingers as it blares scratching noises.
    Mayor: This techno music is dope!
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Though in "Boogie Frights", his wife does call him Barney.
  • Flanderization: The Mayor has always been somewhat dumb and childish, but he becomes even more screwed up in the later seasons.
  • Forgot Flanders Could Do That: The 2014 special Dance Pantsed tries to get the Mayor back to his old characterization of being an affable man who's only a little ditzy. While his first scene has him snap at Ms. Bellum, he feels remorse for it and later apologizes to her. He also tells Professor Utonium not to give up when Mojo Jojo takes control of the girls.
  • Heroic BSoD: After losing the mayoral election to Fuzzy Lumpkins in "Impeach Fuzzy", the Mayor undergoes one of these, and becomes a homeless derilict completely submerged in his own self-pity.
  • Hidden Depths: The Mayor of Townsville isn't particularly known for his intelligence but he has occasionally shown signs of it:
    • When a guy who collects powerpuff merchandise abducts the girls, the Mayor summons the whole population of Townsville under the belief that the kidnapper will be the only person who doesn't show up and his plan works.
    • When the girls take advantage of the Professor's sleepwalking to get free toys, the Mayor is in the plan to trick them into seeing how wrong they are. He says that a good politician must be able to lie.
    • When the girls need to solve the riddle "Where is boiling and freezing at the same time?", the Mayor is the one who figures out it was about coordinates. He effortlessly realizes what Him's last riddle meant, which confused the girls, even Blossom.
    Mayor: The freezing point of water is thirty-two degrees Fahrenheit, while the boiling point is two hundred twelve degrees. (Cut to the girls, greatly surprised, and pan back to him as he continues.) Two hundred twelve degrees west of the Greenwich Mean Time on the longitudinal axis, by thirty-two degrees north of the equator on the latitudinal axis, maps a specific point on the globe, that point being right here in the city of Townsville, the intersection of Lincoln and Main, to be exact. (Pause; he continues in his normal manner of speaking.) Or it could be there’s an ice cream truck on fire somewhere. Have a nice day, girls!
  • High-Class Glass: Always seen with a monacle.
  • Lethally Stupid: The mayor is extremely idiotic and has caused damage when he tries to do something. One wonders why no one ever runs against him.
  • The Load: In later seasons when he ends up tagging along with the girls and only slowing them down by his incompetence.
  • Manly Tears: Invoked. The Mayor (who is by no means manly) calls his tears "manly" when Ms. Bellum went missing in "Something's A Ms."
  • Manchild: Especially in the later seasons, where he cries and talks in third person.
  • Mayor Pain: His incompetence has at times made him a danger to Townsville. At his worst, he has attacked Townsville with a boxing glove from a hot air balloon out of an extremely misguided attempt to protect the city without the Powerpuff Girls' help and once even accidentally took the girls' Dynamo and used it to wreck the city.
  • Nice Guy: Mostly in Seasons 1-3, he's friendly and easygoing.
  • Nice Hat: He's almost never seen without his little top hat, and he once took down Fuzzy Lumpkins because he was wearing it.
  • No Mouth: His mouth is covered by his moustache. Subverted in "Boogie Frights", when he is shown with a Volumetric Mouth while he screams, and in "Man Up 2: Still Manning", when he is clearly drawn with a mouth when he is talking to the Girls.
  • Permanent Elected Official: Despite being an idiot, he never really gets replaced. Although Miss Bellum comments that this is only because no one ever runs against him.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: One wonders why someone this stupid got to be mayor in the first place. Its implied it's because no one else wants the job.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: In "Toast of the Town", where he acts like a five-year old, messing around with the professor's things and speaking in third person crying, "Mayor want toast!"
  • Ship Tease: It is occasionally implied that he has feelings for Ms. Bellum. One of the most notable instances of this would be in "Something's a Ms.", where Sedusa seduces him while disguised as Ms. Bellum and the Mayor doesn't know she's Sedusa in disguise until the end of the episode. In general, it's often made clear that Ms. Bellum is the one person the Mayor cares about the most. Its also implied that Ms. Bellum loves him back, such as in the Bad Future caused by Him where the Mayor is dead.
  • Temporarily a Villain: See Well-Intentioned Extremist below.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: In later seasons, due to flanderization.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He also acts more insensitive at times after Season 3, especially in the episode, "Toast of the Town".
  • Third-Person Person: Spoke like this in "Toast Of The Town".
  • Trademark Favorite Food:
    • Pickles. He loves them so much in the movie that his whole crusade against the girls isn't because they destroyed part of the city, but because they destroyed his favorite pickle stand.
    • "Seed No Evil" had him switch to sunflower seeds, but he switches back after an ufrozen caveman keeps robbing him of them.
    • He likes toast too, as seen in "Toast of The Town".
  • Ultimate Authority Mayor: Only because nobody bothers to run against him for some unknown reason.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: In the episode "Hot Air Buffoon", he tries to fight crime without the girls by using a hot air balloon with a boxing glove, but he ends up injuring innocent people, so the girls have to stop him.
  • You Don't Look Like You: The Mayor was drastically different in "Meat Fuzzy Lumpkins" and was voiced by Jim Cummings. But that could be a different mayor.
  • Your Cheating Heart: A mild case, but he is shown to have feelings for Ms. Bellum despite already having a wife.
  • You No Take Candle: Talks like this in "Toast of the Town." Most of his dialogue in the episode has him saying lines like "Mayor want toast!" to play up his Psychopathic Manchild behavior.

     Sara Bellum 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sara_Bellum_7697.png
Voiced by: Jennifer Martin, Julie Nathanson (as a child), Jennifer Hale (2016-present)

Ms. Bellum is the mayor's much-more-competent personal assistant, helping him out with whatever he can't handle on his own (i.e. just about everything). She's tall and has long, bushy red hair, but her face has never been shown—it's always blocked by the top of the frame, a conveniently-placed obstacle, or something like that.


  • Action Girl: She is one of the most accomplished martial artists in the series, capable of going toe to toe with Sedusa.
  • Ambiguously Brown: She has tan skin and she is noticeably bustier than the other female characters in the show, implying she might be of hispanic descent.
  • Badass Normal: She managed to defeat supervillainess Sedusa in a fight.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted in "Reeking Havoc", where several characters create a methane monster by farting after eating chili made by the Professor in a chili cook-off. She's shown farting as she's cutting cheese.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Managed to beat up Sedusa in "Something's a Miss", even going far enough to have the Powerpuff Girls cut off her hair.
  • Blinding Bangs: Her hair completely covers her face.
  • The Commissioner Gordon: Even moreso compared to the Mayor.
  • Cool Big Sis: Acts as one to the girls sometimes.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Has bright orange hair with tan skin.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Mainly towards The Mayor when he says something idiotic.
    Blossom: If [the Mayor]'s supposed to be running the city, why’s he always asking us to save it for him?
    Ms. Bellum: Oh, you’re absolutely right, girls. He should be using his own superpowers to save the city.
  • Everyone Went to School Together: She attended the same elementary school as Professor Utonium, Ms. Keane, Sedusa and Femme Fatale.
  • Face Palm: In "Bought & Scold," you can see her covering her face with two of her hands after the Mayor sells Townsville to Princess' dad.
  • The Faceless: Only shown from neck down, and even when her full body is shown, her hair either obscures her face or her face gets covered by something else. At least until the 10th anniversary special, and even then you have to look very carefully. Said revelation has her combining Eyes Always Shut and Peek-a-Bangs together.
  • Growling Gut: In "Reeking Havoc" after she ate chili spiked with Chemical X.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Obvious to the viewer, but admitted by the Mayor in "Something's a Ms." where he admits that he's accomplished more than most despite (knowingly) not being very smart, thanks to her.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: She has wide hips and a waist about as thin as her neck. A number of characters have commented on her beauty.
  • Male Gaze: A Lampshade Hanging of it. You can only see her from the neck down.
  • Meaningful Name: Cerebellum, a region of the brain that plays an important part in motor control. In comparison to the Mayor, she seems more like the person who would be more fit to run Townsville.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She is very shapely and pretty much every episode she's in has some focus made on her body.
  • No Accounting for Taste: A possible interpretation of her relationship with the Mayor.
  • Nice Girl: She's a reasonable, trustworthy sort of person.
  • Only Sane Employee: She appears to be the only one working in City Hall during the day, but she's a lot more down to earth than her idiotic boss.
  • Only Sane Woman: Just about everyone in Townsville is crazy, stupid, or evil other than her.
  • Punny Name: Sara Bellum = Cerebellum. The cerebellum is part of the brain, which she uses a lot more of than her goofy boss.
  • Put on a Bus: The 2016 revival phases her out for the time being by having her use up all the vacation days she'd acquired over the years serving with the Mayor (over 1000) and spend them all at once. Since she's said to have over 1,000 days of vacation time to spend in one go, this means that she'll be out of the picture for just shy of three years.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes down to her waist.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Trusts the girls to protect Townsville and steps in whenever they need a push in the right direction.
  • Sexy Secretary: She is the mayor's assistant and is quite shapely.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Probably one of the tallest characters in the cast and quite beautiful.
  • The Stoic: Most of the time, she speaks in a subdued tone.
  • Undying Loyalty: If all her interactions with the Mayor were not enough clues, during the Bad Future episode, an old Ms. Bellum is shown holding the Mayor's hat years after he passed away, and when the girls try to come close, she snarls like a cornered animal and screams that the mayor is "hers and hers alone".

     Talking Dog 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/talkingdog_5108.jpg
Voiced by: Tom Kane

As one can readily deduce, Talking Dog is a canine resident of Townsville who has the inexplicable ability to speak English.


  • Butt-Monkey: Gets his share of bad luck. He's constantly abused in almost every episode he appears in.
  • Brutal Honesty: In "Shut The Pup Up", he doesn't sugarcoat any of the somewhat crass things he says.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Seems to be mostly unaware that the brutally honest things he says in "Shut The Pup Up" are rude things.
    Talking Dog: What, what did I say?
  • Kick the Dog: It is his role to be kicked to show how evil the villain is.
  • Lampshade Hanging: In "Bubblevicious":
    Talking Dog (sitting in a car at the center of a traffic jam): "Well, I might be able to talk, but I sure as heck can't drive!"
  • The Stoic: When almost getting killed several times in the movie, he doesn't even react.
  • Talking Animal: He's not called "Talking Dog" for nothing.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: The talking dog is a regular Townsville citizen as far as everyone's reactions go.
    • Lampshaded in "Documentary" where he is shown to have a little anger over the girls when he was interviewed by Brian Larsen, he stated that the girls were boring and that no one seemed to care that he was able to talk.

     The Narrator 
Voiced by: Tom Kenny (main series), Ernie Anderson (What a Cartoon! shorts)

The series' enthusiastic narrator is never seen at any point in the series, though he is a person and not just a disembodied voice—for example, in "Monkey See, Doggie Do", he's turned into a dog along with the rest of Townsville, and in "Simian Says", Mojo Jojo kidnaps him and takes his place as the narrator. As the narrator, he, of course, has the ability to break the fourth wall.


     Miss Keane 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ms_Keane_83.png
Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

The kindergarten teacher of Pokey Oaks Kindergarten. She is patient, understanding and very protective of her students, making her a well-liked, motherly figure.


  • Art Evolution: Her bust is greatly reduced in the 2016 series. However, she gets her bust back later on.
  • Berserk Button: Never say anything mean about cats. She even gets upset if you tell her you don't like cats.
  • Cool Teacher: You kind of have to be one to deal with the Powerpuff Girls.
  • Did Not Get The Guy: She dated Professor Utonium for a while, but when he finds out she has a cat, he breaks up with her because she doesn't believe him about the time he was brainwashed by an evil cat.
  • Everyone Went to School Together: She is former classmates with Miss Bellum and Professor Utonium.
  • Friend to All Children: She really cares about the children she's teaching.
  • Growling Gut: In "Reeking Havoc" while at the gas station.
  • Hartman Hips: Most notably in "Keen on Keane".
  • Horrible Judge of Character: In one episode in which the Gangreen Gang are forced to attend Pokey Oaks by a truant officer, Ms. Keane accepts them with open arms, and when the Powerpuff Girls counter their antics and attempts to torment the kids, Ms. Keane only sees the Girls assault them and punishes the girls while letting the Gangreen Gang get away with it. It's only when they brutally injure the other kids in a game of dodgeball that Ms. Keane realizes that the PPG were right about the Gangreen Gang all along.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Her eyes represent her kind personality and her motherly relationship with her students.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: She owns a cat named Valentino.
  • Meaningful Name: Named after painter Margaret Keane, who specialized in big-eyed children.
  • Nice Gal: She is a kindly kindergarten teacher.
  • Out-of-Character Moment:
    • In the episode "Ice Sore," she forced her students to go outside in the hot weather, with no concern for their health. This is very jarring as she's usually very caring for her students, but somewhat understandable due to the extreme heat causing mild heat exhaustion.
    • She also dips into this in "Daylight Savings", see Skewed Priorities below.
    • In one episode, the girls turn to her and ask her to watch over a baby they found until they can find his mother. Cue a very awkward scene where Ms. Keane tries to avoid having to watch over the baby and is implied to dislike children.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: She has dark hair and pale skin.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Understands that the girls are good.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: Her and the Professor in "Keen on Keane." However, this ends when the Professor can't stand her cat Valentino, causing the two of them to break up.
  • Skewed Priorities: In one episode, she claims that education is more important than saving the world.
  • Teacher's Pet: Implied to have been this in her childhood in "Get Back Jojo."
  • Teacher/Parent Romance: She strikes up one with the Professor however they ended up breaking up in that same episode.
  • Team Mom: Since Professor Utonium is a Truly Single Parent, Ms. Keane is pretty much the closest the girls have to a mother.

     Mitch Mitchelson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_32383_7113.jpg
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

A mean kid who is in the girls' kindergarten class.


  • Alliterative Name: Mitch Mitchelson.
  • Black Bead Eyes: His eyes are drawn this way.
  • Berserk Button: He does not like to be called by his real name "Mitchell".
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Worse than Buttercup in this regard.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Nowhere to be seen in the 2016 reboot.
  • Enemy to All Living Things: He's not that fond of animals, especially Twiggy, to the point of torturing her to the point that she ends up wanting to murder him.
  • Enfant Terrible: His treatment of Twiggy in "Gettin' Twiggy With It" says it all.
  • Evil Laugh: His laugh that sounds like Popeye The Sailor's trademark laugh.
  • Grandparental Obliviousness: His grandmother in "Getting' Twiggy With It" is just shown to be staring at a blank TV screen with a vacant expression on her face. In other words, she doesn't appear to know that her son is a troublemaker.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: In "Gettin' Twiggy With It." He tortures Twiggy to the point that, when his actions result in her getting mutated by toxic waste, she tries to kill him outright. The girls are initially fully prepared to stand back and let Twiggy do so, explicitly telling Mitch that he's the monster here.
  • Jerkass: Sometimes. He's the most antagonistic in the episode "Gettin' Twiggy With it."
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his brattiness, he can also be seen getting along with the girls and the other kids at Pokey Oaks a lot of the time. He even managed to get on Santa's Nice list, much to Princess' surprise.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: In the Twiggy episode, where every time he appears to show some sort of nice side he winds up acting like even more of a brat than before.
  • Kids Are Cruel: Sometimes he can be quite the bully, for example, he's cruel to Elmer for eating glue, and Twiggy by torturing her.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After the way he treated Twiggy, he ends up being chased by the mutated hamster on a Hamster wheel.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His voice is reminiscent of Popeye the Sailor's.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His real name is Mitchell.
  • Raised by Grandparents: We don't see his mother and father, and he says that he lives with his grandmother.
  • Repetitive Name: "Mitchell Mitchelson".
  • Took a Level in Kindness: He was definitely a Jerkass before: in Season 1 he bullied Elmer ("Paste Makes Waste") and in Season 3 he tortured Twiggy. ("Gettin Twiggy With It"). But in Season 4 ("All Chalked Up"), Buttercup hits him with a dodgeball so hard he skids across the pavement and smears some of Bubbles' chalk drawings, which she yells at him for. And he apologizes for it, even though it was Buttercup's fault.
  • Vocal Dissonance: He's a five-year-old kid with the voice of Popeye the Sailor.

Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker

A kindergarten boy who turned into a giant glue monster.


  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: After eating paste that a radioactive bug gets into.
  • Butt-Monkey: Before turning into a giant paste monster, he was the butt of many jokes from the other kids, including Buttercup.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Doesn't appear in the 2016 show.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Comes with being a Paste Eater.
  • Face–Heel Turn: When he mutates into a giant glue monster.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He decides to stop attacking Townsville when Buttercup finally apologizes.
  • Misplaced Retribution: In the episode "Paste Makes Waste." After his mutation, Blossom and Bubbles initially refuse to help Buttercup fight him, explicitly telling her that it's what she deserves for picking on him. They quickly change their minds when Elmer proceeds to attack Ms. Keane, who had nothing to do with the bullying, and proceeds to rampage through Townsville.
  • Paste Eater: Why he was made fun of at the beginning of the episode.
  • Punny Name: See below.
  • Shout-Out: His name is this to Elmer's Glue Company.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Paste!
  • Unexplained Recovery: The episode where he became a glue monster ended without him returning to normal and he is depicted as a normal boy for the rest of the series.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: A textbook example. He started out as a boy who liked eating glue. Other kids picked on him for it, and he was pushed so hard that he became a glue-monster, and became a destructive threat towards Townsville. In the end, he just wanted Buttercup to apologise to him, and he pulls a Heel–Face Turn afterwards.

     Stan and Sandra Practice 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/m_m.PNG
Stan is Voiced by: Daran Norris
Sandra is Voiced by: Susan Blakeslee

A very strict couple who make a contract to ban the Powerpuff Girls' use of their superpowers.


  • Hair Decorations: Sandra's hairband. It's seen from the sides as her hair up front hides it.
  • Hate Sink: They basically fulfill this role in their appearance.
  • Jerkass: If threatening legal action against the Professor if he doesn't agree to their terms wasn't evidence enough.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: They are absolute killjoys, but unfortunately their concerns are validly relatable to any Moral Guardian who worried how violence effects children's behavior.
  • Karma Houdini: They aren't punished for making Townsville plunge into chaos by banning the girls from using their powers.
  • Meaningful Name: Their names are a pun on the term "Standards and Practices", that are there to make sure what is being on the air is appropriate for the audience.
  • Moral Myopia: At the end of the episode; they're perfectly willing to lift the ban they placed on the girls when it's them the crooks are going after.
  • Moral Guardians: They are very worried that the fighting the Girls do might influence children's behavior.
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat: They are a Moral Guardian killjoy couple who attempted to ban the Powerpuff Girls' powers, not caring how it would negatively affect the wellbeing of Townsville if the girls do not fight evil.
  • Pink Is Feminine: Everything Sandra is wearing is pink.
  • Smug Snake: They believe their ways are correct and refuse to listen to the professor's thoughts.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Their ban on the girls using their powers is to keep kids from imitating them.

    Robin Snyder

Voiced by: Julie Nathanson

A little girl that the Girls befriend in "Super Friends".


  • All-Loving Hero: She didn't seem to hold much of a grudge towards Princess when she betrayed her and just genuinely wanted to be friends with the Spoiled Brat.
  • Break the Cutie: Everytime the Powerpuff Girls leave her to go save the day.
  • The Bus Came Back: She's back as of the rebooted series as a Recurring Extra.
  • Cheerful Child: A sweet and happy kid.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Became the friend of the Powerpuff trio in "Super Friends", but never appeared again after that. Up until the 2016 show, that is.
  • The Cutie: Is sweet and kind, and is basically on the same level of cuteness as Bubbles and Boomer.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Has blue eyes to go along with her cheery nature.
  • Nice Girl: She's a friendly and sweet girl.
  • One-Shot Character: Only appeared in "Super Friends". Seems to be averted as of the reboot, since she had a speaking role in "The Stayover" and appears as a Recurring Extra most of the time.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches almost all the way down to her feet.
  • Recurring Extra: Usually just is shown in the background for brief seconds in the 2016 series.
  • Shrinking Violet: She is a bit shy, and speaks in a soft tone of voice.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: If the episode "The Stayover" is anything to go by, then raisins are this for her.
  • Vocal Evolution: Has a more gravelly voice in the 2016 series compared to her single appearance in "Super Friends" of the original show.

     Mike Believe 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/njk.PNG
Voiced by: Aaron Spann

A shy boy in Pokey Oaks Kindergarten who creates an imaginary friend called Patches. Unfortunately, Patches causes a lot of mischief.


  • Cassandra Truth: Blames much of the problems that happen after he shows up on Patches. No one believes him until the invisible Patches's actions are witnessed firsthand.
  • Expy: Inverted, he was likely an inspiration for Mac.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Mike’s reason for creating Patches. At the end of the episode, Bubbles offers to be Mike’s friend.

  • One-Shot Character: Has never appeared again since "Imaginary Fiend".
  • Shrinking Violet: He's shown hiding behind Ms. Keane when she tries introducing him to the class.

    Bunny 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_33184.jpg

A fourth Powerpuff Girl the trio create in "Twisted Sister". Unfortunately, she causes more harm than good.


  • Acrofatic: Bunny is wider compared to the rest of the Girls but still just as strong and quick as they are.
  • Anyone Can Die: She's the only non-antagonist character to be killed off permanently.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Seems to have slight mental impairment. She mostly speaks in gibberish, has trouble understanding simple things, and has bad grammar.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She defeats criminals by herself when they assault the Girls.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She's mentally slow but manages to beat up crooks that were attacking the Girls all on her own.
  • Big Little Sister: She's technically the youngest of the Girls (as well as their creation) but also the tallest and bulkiest.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Inverted. She's definitely big in a literal sense even though she's the youngest of the Girls, but when the Girls get beat up by escaped convicts she comes to their rescue.
  • British Teeth: Bunny isn't British, but she does definitely have the messy teeth.
  • Catchphrase: "Bunny do good!"
  • Cuddle Bug: Gives her sisters a big hug after they introduce themselves to her.
  • The Ditz: Bunny is shown to be rather slow-witted.
  • Dumb Muscle: Although she's physically strong, she appears to be just a little underdeveloped mentally and emotionally.
  • Dramatically Missing the Point: Misunderstands her sisters's orders to defeat villains and instead beats up police officers.
  • Expy: Of Bizarro—a dimwitted, deformed duplicate of the hero(es) who means well, but ends up causing problems.
  • Famous Last Words: "Bunny do good!"
  • Fat Idiot: More muscle than fat, but she's still less intelligent than the other girls either way.
  • Fingerless Hands: She has stubby hands like the rest of the Powerpuff Girls.
  • Gentle Giant: The tallest of the Girls but likes hugs.
  • Gonk: Messy teeth, giant lips...in short, she's not a looker.
  • The Grotesque: She looks a bit different from her older sisters and may not be quite as smart as them, but nonetheless, she's a lovable little girl who loves her creators and wants to help them protect Townsville from evil.
  • Has Two Mommies: Three mommies, in a sense. The Girls are her sisters, but since they created Bunny, they're technically her mothers.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: She sings the opening theme off-key while flying around to search for criminals.
  • Hulk Speak: When she talks normally, she has some grammar issues.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: Bawls loudly after being scolded by the Girls for beating up police officers.
  • Ironic Name: She's named "Bella" in the Spanish dub, meaning "pretty", but if you simply look at her, you'll know she's anything but.
  • Killed Off for Real: Bunny blows up after saving her sisters. The Narrator confirms she won't come back.
    Narrator: (sobbing) "Oh, it's so sad—I can't take it!" *sniff* "And so, for the first—and final time—the day is saved...thanks to...Powerpuff...Bunny!!!"
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: She may have been underdeveloped in intelligence, but she really did want to do good.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: She spends most of "Twisted Sister" screwing up the orders of the Powerpuff Girls by throwing cops in jail, but at the very end she rescues the Girls from the criminals who beat them up.
  • The Millstone: Bunny acts as a burden to the Girls at first because of her messing up their orders.
  • Naïve Newcomer: To the Powerpuff Girls.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Was responsible for a bunch of criminals escaping jail.
  • Nice Girl: Bunny is gentle, friendly, and truly does have good intentions.
  • No Body Left Behind: When she explodes, all that's left of her is a piece of her dress.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Much more buff and taller than the other three members of the trio, and has bigger lips. She's also the only one to be drawn with ears, as seen in a scene when Bunny hears a bank alarm bell ringing.
  • The Noseless: Just like the other Powerpuff Girls, she lacks a visible nose.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has this facial expression right before exploding.
  • One-Shot Character: Only appeared in "Twisted Sister". Justified, as she exploded at the ending.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Has purple eyes and a purple dress, and was one of the Powerpuff Girls.
  • Simpleton Voice: A deep, goofy-sounding voice courtesy of Christine Cavanaugh.
  • Sixth Ranger: The fourth member of the Powerpuff trio. Until her death, that is.
  • Status Quo Is God: Come on, did you seriously think she'd be a permanent member of the Powerpuff trio?
  • Thicker Than Water: Initially the sisters grow to detest Bunny, believing her to be a burden, but when she saves the day, the girls immediately recant their previous notions. Sadly, they never get the chance to show this to her.
  • Third-Person Person: Whenever she actually speaks intelligibly.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Bunny sports a rather messy ponytail.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Poor Bunny. This adorable little girl sacrifices herself in saving Townsville from a great danger, never to return again.
  • Tragic Hero: We never hear from her again, after her first and only debut in the show.
  • The Unintelligible: It's sorta hard to understand what she's saying due to her voice being garbled. Plus most of the time, she doesn't even say much besides grunting and mumbling.
  • Walking Spoiler: You can't really bring up this character without spoiling it for somebody that Bunny dies in her only appearance.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Her only appearance is in "Twisted Sister", and she dies at the end of the episode.
  • Younger Than They Look: She's tall, muscular and has a deep voice, but is actually a day old.

    The Mayor's Wife 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f275c4fea48ee3a24a1b53ed7ef68261.jpg
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

She's, well, the Mayor's wife. The Mayor doesn't seem to like her very much.


  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She eventually stopped showing up or being mentioned, although she does appear for a few seconds in "Reeking Havoc". Possibly doubles as Early Installment Weirdness, as subsequent episodes imply that the Mayor is single.
  • Girls With Mustaches: She has a mustache just like her husband.
  • Growling Gut: Her stomach bubbles while in bed in "Reeking Havoc".
  • No Name Given: Her real name is never revealed, she's only referred to as "The Mayor's Wife".
  • Pink Means Feminine: Usually seen wearing a pink dress.
  • The Quiet One: To elaborate, she's only spoken once in the whole series, that being "Boogie Frights".
  • The Voiceless: In all her appearances, she's completely silent except for "Boogie Frights".
  • Unwanted Spouse: Her very existence seemed to involve being the punchline for this kind of joke. The Mayor screams in terror when he sees her in "Boogie Frights", is willing to hand her over to some crooks in another episode, and in yet another he awkwardly avoids declaring any love for her, instead talking about how much he loves his pen. Possible reasons why she was removed are that 1, the joke was getting old, and 2, it was starting to make the Mayor look uncharacteristically mean.

     Mr. Green 

Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker

  • Dark Is Not Evil: He turns out to be a rather nice guy despite his off-putting appearance.
  • Nice Guy: He's one of the few monsters in the series who's kind.
  • One-Shot Character: Only appears in "Substitute Creature."
  • Reluctant Monster: Mr. Green looks like a demon, but truly likes children and wants to be a good teacher.
