https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/willoughby_kipling.jpg

Species: Human

Played By: Mark Sheppard

Appearances: Doom Patrol (2019)

A friend of Niles Caulder, and a practiced chaos magician.


  • Anti-Hero: Sarcastic, drunk, and morally flexible. Primarily on the side of the heroes.
  • Black-and-Gray Morality: Kipling has no doubt done some messy things, but its always against greater threats to the world. In Season 2, while not passing judgement, doesn't seem to approve of Nile's experimentation.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Kipling is a fantastically powerful magician who is also a washed-up drunk and half-insane.
  • Combat Pragmatist: The man's willing to break a lot of moral lines for the greater good. In season 2, he's of the position that Dorothy needs to be killed for the greater safety of the world.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Every other line that drips out of his mouth is this.
  • Experienced Protagonist: He is very experienced with all of the weirdness going around to the point that it no longer phases him and he has a plan for just about everything.
  • Expy: Is one of John Constantine, naturally. In the Doom Patrol comics, Kipling was created because the creators were forbidden from using John in the series.
  • Flaming Sword: Uses his magic to conjure one of these to defeat many Cult of the Unwritten Book members.
  • Good Is Not Nice: On top of his aforementioned moral ambiguity, the Doom Patrol hate talking to him for just being a prick.
  • Hero of Another Story: Off on more magical adventures than Niles.
  • Hot Skitty-on-Wailord Action: It turns out that he has the hots for Baphomet, which is an issue because aside from the fact that she apparently doesn't feel the same way, she's just a horse head and neck, doesn't even have a torso.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Pretends to go along with the Doom Patrol's plan, but backstabs Cyborg as soon as he can to go for his simpler Shoot the Dog plan. On a more playful note, in season 2, he only comes to Niles' aid after the other performs a song number with an umbrella.
  • Occult Detective: Naturally, as a John Constantine Expy.
  • Older Than He Looks: He apparently born in the 15th century, his childhood imaginary friend was a Punch and Judy doll.

  • OOC Is Serious Business: [[spoiler: When he realizes Niles wants him
  • Secret Keeper: He knows Niles was responsible for the Doom Patrol's "accidents".
  • Shoot the Dog: Is willing to shoot and kill Elliot in "Cult Patrol" to save the world.

Metahumans

    Flex Mentallo 

"Flex Mentallo"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flex.jpg

Species: Metahuman

Played by: Devan Long

Appearances: Doom Patrol (2019)

Flex Mentallo is a comic book superhero brought to life, having powers of altering reality by flexing. He is kidnapped by the Bureau of Normalcy, but rescued by the Doom Patrol.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: When he first got his powers in the comics, he not only beat up his childhood tormentors but cast aside his girlfriend because he felt she was crimping his style. Here, he's about as nice as he was when he joined the team.
  • Break the Cutie: His imprisonment in the Ant Farm has destroyed most of his mind by the time the Doom Patrol encounters him.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: May seem like a big muscular guy, but he's very sweet and gentle, beloved in his hometown and was in a loving and happy relationship with his wife.
  • Happily Married: To his wife Dolores, with her being the reason why he allowed himself to be experimented on by the Bureau of Normalcy as they held her hostage. Unfortunately, their reunion doesn't last long.
  • Mr. Fanservice: His regular clothes are just boxers and combat boots, leaving his chiseled features out in the open
  • Nice Guy: Can easily befriend anyone.
  • Older Than They Look: Doesn't look a day older today than he did in 1964.
  • Pec Flex: His Muscle Mystery power activates when he flexs, so expect him to go into body-builder poses during a fight.
  • Pre-Climax Climax: Causes one in Penultimate Patrol when he accidentally flexes the wrong muscle and as a result the entire Doom Patrol (except Cliff) and all the Dannyzens orgasm.
  • Reality Warper: He seems to be able to do just about anything with his "Muscle Mystery powers" so long as he is able to use his muscles. Moving his chin is sufficient for telekinesis while a full body flex blacks out a city.
  • Stripperiffic: A rare male example of this trope.
  • Superpower Lottery: Just about anything can happen when he flexes. As stated above, while warping reality is one of his main abilities, as long as he can use his muscles, he has multiple powers that are a mystery even to him.
  • Super Senses: He can hear things that normal humans are flat out unable to, like the Negative Spirit or Grid inside Vic's software.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He's mostly clad in his bracelets, boots and Underwear of Power.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: His powers require him to be able to flex to do anything, so no flex means no go. The Bureau was able to hold him by using a device that kept him mostly immobile and even then what little movement he did have let him use his powers at a very low level. Certain effects require certain flexes so it is possible to get a misfire if he flexes incorrectly.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After sending the others to the White Space, he is only mentioned in Ezekiel Patrol by Danny, but otherwise does not appear. As Danny says he got the Dannizens to safety it's possible he went with them.
  • The Worf Effect: He's rendered useless during the fight with the Shadowy Mr. Evans when the villain uses telekinesis to exploit Flex's aforementioned weakness.

    Dorothy Spinner 

Dorothy Spinner

Species: Metahuman

Played by: Abigail Shapiro

Appearances: Doom Patrol (2019)

Niles Caulder’s daughter who according to him, has the ability to cleave the world in two if she's not careful with her powers.


  • Children Are Innocent: Acts like an innocent little girl and the Doom Patrol do their best to be as polite around her as they can. Unfortunately, it also leaves her unable to deal with the heavier traumas of the cast and Jane notes her immortality might mean that Dorothy will always be that way.
  • Coming-of-Age Story: Season 2 is this for her, if the Candlemaker being a tulpa based around the imagery of birthday candles wasn't enough of a clue.
  • Daddy's Girl: As she's been eleven for so long, she acts this way towards her father
  • Emotional Powers: Her "imaginary friends" are tied to her emotions, coming out when she's feeling incredibly happy, sad or scared. The Candlemaker especially.
  • The Faceless: Only seen from the back during Season 1 as Abigail Shapiro wasn't cast yet.
  • First Period Panic: In Dad Patrol, Dorothy gets her first period at the gas station and runs into the bathroom in a panic as she doesn't know what's happening. Thankfully, the cashier gently talks her through it and assures Dorothy that she's just growing up.
  • Five Stages of Grief: Denial. She refuses to accept her father is dying after he gives up his pendant that made him immortal. She even refuses to believe her father is a horrible person after Baby Doll told her the truth about him.
  • Gosh Dangit To Heck: Despite being around the other members of the Doom Patrol, she tries not to use "naughty words". Shown when she accidentally drops and breaks Danny.
    Dorothy: Oh... fudge.
  • Hearing Voices: She has two "friends" Darling and Hershel who speak to her in her head.
  • Last Episode, New Character: Is introduced in Ezekiel Patrol.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After making a wish to Candlemaker to kill Babydoll, once the deed is done, Dorothy realizes what has happened and quietly cries as she sees Jane's body covered in wax. She even runs away in the next episode knowing she broke the promise to her father.
  • Named After Someone Famous: Her name is a nod towards Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz (a gale and a spinner are both windstorms), and she even dresses similarly to the character.
  • Never My Fault: She blames the Candlemaker for hurting Jane even though she was the one who wished Baby Doll's death.
  • Older Than They Look: She looks like a little girl, but Niles had her hidden away for her protection for ninety years. In "Sex Patrol", she's 102 3/4 years old.
  • Puberty Superpower: Played with considering she already had superpowers in the form of her imaginary friends from a very young age. However, after she had her first period, the Candlemaker's power grew to the point that she wasn't able to contain it anymore.
  • Rejected Apology: She still refuses to forgive Baby Doll for murdering Manny. Grief-stricken, she unleashes the Candlemarker to follow Baby Doll in the Underground and kill her.
  • Related in the Adaptation: This version of the character is Niles Caulder's daughter. They're unrelated in the comics.
  • Revenge Before Reason: She forgets her promise to her father to never make a wish and in her grief over Manny's death, makes a wish for Candlemaker to kill Baby Doll.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: After Flaming Katy destroyed Manny, she makes a wish and has the Candlemaker kill Baby Doll (which also kills Flaming Katy in the process).

Other

    Danny the Street 

Danny the Street

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dannythestreet.png

Species: Sentient Street

Appearances: Doom Patrol (2019)

A sentient street who travels between cities, causing citizens to feel different emotions.
  • Camp: Though it might be a tad unnecessary debating whether a sentient street is gay or straight, they're definitely camp, like in the comics, where their effeminate mannerisms influence others.
  • Composite Character:
    • Word is that this version is inspired by both the Grant Morrison and Gerard Way versions of the character, as a sentient street with a vibrant personality that causes happy emotions for the residents regarding the former, and will let their personality seep into others regarding the latter.
    • Their fate at the end of the first season reduced to a single brick is straight out of the Keith Giffen version of the Doom Patrol that Morrison's and Way's versions bracket.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When Larry asks why the Bureau of Normalcy was after them, Danny responds with this:
    Danny: You know a lot of sentient, teleporting, genderqueer streets, Larry?
  • Drag Queen: Danny influences one named Morris to becoming Maura Lee Karupt. There are also plenty of other Dannyzens who are drag queens.
  • Emotion Eater: A heroic version. According to Maura Lee, Danny gains sustenance from the happiness and wellbeing of the residents, without draining them of it. They are either unwilling or unable to go full on Lotus-Eater Machine to achieve that.
  • Genius Loci: Danny is a very warm, friendly, welcoming...place.
  • Honor Before Reason: Their promises to the Chief keep the Doom Patrol in the dark and hampers the team's success. While Danny knows Niles' decisions aren't always the best decisions, they still support them out of misplaced loyalty. This shatters their relationship with Dorothy when she realizes Danny was often more of a prison to a friend.
  • Nice Street: They happily chat up and accommodate anyone, as long as they do not harbor clearly hostile intent.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Dorothy's reaction to their betrayal forces them to acknowledge their culpability in Dorothy's misery and that they weren't a good friend. It's this that leads Danny to decide that they can't be a street anymore and begins to take a new form.
  • Shapeshifter: Danny can change their shape and generate matter. However, at the end of season 1 Danny remains a brick , and seems unable to shift back without the Dannyzens throwing them a party.
  • Talking with Signs: How Danny communicates with everyone.
  • Teleportation: Their main power, and how they move around.
  • Transgender: Danny is nonbinary and genderqueer, as stated by themselves and by Maura Lee.
  • Where Everybody Knows Your Flame: Danny is home to Peeping Tom's Perpetual Cabaret, a thoroughly fabulous 24-hour club with drag shows and karaoke.

  • Giant Spider: Hershel takes on this form.
  • Imaginary Friend: He only appears for Dorothy, unless she's feeling incredibly happy or very scared.
  • Intangibility: He has the ability to pass through solid objects as if they weren't there.

One of Dorothy's Imaginary friends who takes the form of a woman with a face out of a mirror, two lightbulbs for eyes and floating lips.

  • Imaginary Friend: She only appears for Dorothy, however she does show up if the girl is feeling really happy or very scared.
