W.O.O.H.P.

Main Trio

    General 

  • Action Girl: They seem to take turns being competent. Sam often leads the team, displays the best hand-to-hand combat skills and gets kidnapped least. Clover combines this with Action Fashionista. Alex usually serves as the heavy hitter, and is also the most athletic of the three.
  • Aerith and Bob: Sam, Alex, and...Clover.
  • Badass Adorable: They are beautiful and deadly at the same time.
  • Beauty, Brains and Brawn: Clover, Sam and Alex.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Clover, Alex and Sam. And the picture even has them in order!
  • Boobs of Steel: All three of them are fairly busty Depending on the Artist and each has shown off a surprising feat of strength. Out of the three, Alex would qualify the most as she's the most athletic.
  • Combat Stilettos: They wear heels with their spy outfits.
  • Depending on the Artist: The girls' figures and their catsuits changes from season to season with some seasons portraying them as very slender and flat-chested while others portrayed them with more curvaceous figures and more notable (bigger) busts. Their catsuits also change how shiny they are supposed to be.
  • Four-Girl Ensemble:
    • Played with when Britney joins the team. Clover is the glamour-obsessed girly one, Sam is the mature Team Mom, but Alex fits both the tomboyish one and the naive one at the same time, while Britney is just The Generic Girl.
    • They have a slightly different dynamic when they interact with Mandy: Clover is the ditz, Alex is the tomboy, Sam is still the mature Team Mom, and Mandy is the glamour-obsessed Alpha Bitch.
  • Freudian Trio:
    • Superego: Sam — intellectual, calculating, level-headed.
    • Id: Clover — shopaholic, boy-crazy, short-tempered.
    • Ego: Alex — the most normal and plain of the three.
  • Girly Bruiser: All three main agents tend to fall into this, as well as Sixth Ranger Britney. Clover plays the trope the straightest as she's the most feminine of the lead female characters.
  • Lovely Angels: Makes sense, considering who they're based on. The Power Trio version.
  • Nice Mean And Inbetween: Alex is the nice one, Clover is the Lovable Alpha Bitch (in contrast to the series' Alpha Bitch Mandy), and Sam is the leader and mediator.
  • Only One Name: Their last names are usually never mentioned. However Word of God states that Clover's full name is "Clover Francise Ewing." See also the Alliterative Name entry for Sam. Alex's last name is implied to be "Vasquez".
  • Rank Up: In "Evil Promotion Much?" they're promoted to Super Spy rank.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: Not surprising, since they are both Action Girls and comedy characters.
  • She's Got Legs: Really long ones, especially accentuated by the Spy Catsuit.
  • Spy Catsuit: Brightly colored ones. With heels.
  • The Three Faces of Eve:
    • Sam is the wife.
    • Clover is the seductress.
    • Alex is the child.
  • Town Girls:
    • Neither: Sam.
    • Femme: Clover.
    • Butch: Alex.
  • True Companions: Even 20 years in the future in 2025, they still live together - much to the dismay of their younger 2005 counterparts in "Futureshock!", who realize that means they're still single in their thirties.
  • Womanchild: In Season 6, despite being well into University, the girls behave more like their younger teenage selves rather than women supposedly approaching their 20s.

    Sam 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/download_27_4385.jpg
Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

Samantha (more commonly called "Sam") has long red hair, emerald green eyes and a green catsuit. She's the most intelligent and practical of the group. She pursues a Journalism major in University.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Her friends, mainly Alex, sometimes call her "Sammy."
  • Alliterative Name: In one episode, she presents herself as "Samantha Simpson." Okay, they were undercover, but they always use their own names for these situations, so why not?
  • Badass Bookworm: The first OP has her expertly using a chemistry kit as Clover and Alex watch her in amazement. While at the same time, she is able to fight off the random villains that the trio encounter just as effectively as her partners. AND she also manages to get and keep excellent grades at school (she's mentioned as being a straight-A student).
  • Bare Your Midriff: She generally bares her midriff in larger amounts than Clover and Alex, but not as frequently.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: You do not want to get her angry.
  • Braids of Action: Temporarily, during the Gladiator episode.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: A Running Gag in the show is that she winds up like this on a routine basis.
  • Deadpan Snarker: The most sarcastic of the group. She sometimes gets annoyed by Alex and Clover's comments and actions and will reply with a sarcastic remark or joke. One example was in "Futureshock!". The cheerleaders were doing a routine and Mandy fell off the human pyramid and everyone gasped. While Alex noted that the fall obviously was not a part of the routine, Sam suggested that it be worked in.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Eats a hot towel while at a sushi restaurant, and seems to enjoy it. However, in her defense, the villains had recently stolen her intelligence with their Stupidity-Inducing Attack, so she at least thought it was food.
  • First Gray Hair: One episode had Sam finding a gray hair in her head (unusual, considering she's a teenager, but not thoroughly impossible) and she spent much of the rest of the episode worrying about her age and seeming young. The Aesop of the episode, as delivered by a Cool Old Lady: "It's not how old you are, it's how you are being old!" Although it ends up being a Broken Aesop. Turns, out it was just some gray paint that Sam deduces must have somehow gotten in her hair when she was working on an art project using gray-colored paint.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Not to the extent of Mandy, but in a season 5 episode, "The Granny", it was mentioned that Sam's favorite color is purple.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Played with. She's a bookish and studious girl, but also gorgeous and appears to be relatively popular.
  • Hypocrite:
    • One Season 3 episode has her acting like a super neat-freak and constantly nagging the girls to clean up the apartment. At the end of the episode we see her room, which is a dump that shows no signs of ever having been cleaned.
    • Also in "Evil Heiress", Sam tries to show that she is above materialism, and putting down Alex and Clover for their wants, but by the end of the episode, she is more than happy to suggest a private island and a yacht for her reward for completing their mission.
  • Idiot Ball: Sometimes; for example, she once willingly "drank" hot cocoa with Alex and Clover by dumping the powder directly into her mouth despite supposedly being the smartest one in the group.
  • In the Blood: All the women descended from her great-great-great-grandmother on her mother's side of the family (presumably the mother of Sam's mom's maternal grandmother) are descendants of the Sisterhood, an ancient order of warrior women dedicated to the metaphorical eradication of men and the literal eradication of women who are not in the Sisterhood.
  • Intrepid Reporter: The major that Sam pursues as of Season 6.
  • The Leader: Of the levelheaded variety, she's the one who typically acts as the leader of the trio (especially when it comes to their spy missions, as Sam takes their spy work the most seriously).
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: Downplayed and inverted. Her hair is longer than Alex's and she's slightly more feminine but not by much. With Clover on the other hand, it's the opposite. Clover is way more girly and yet her hair isn't nearly as long as hers.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Has this appeal In-Universe and out. Even when she's turned into a geeky nerd in the episode Super Nerd Much, she's still cute.
  • Mixed Ancestry: She is Irish American.
  • Nice Girl: She's this if you don't push her buttons.
  • Not So Above It All: She tries to be the most responsible and mature member of the team, but like her friends she can be boy crazy and can't resist hot fashion trends, she's just more dignified about it. Like Clover, she can also be a little petty and jealous if she has a rival for the object of her desire.
  • Only Sane Woman: Most of the time.
  • Rapunzel Hair: She's got the longest hair of the three—her hair reaches all the way down to her waist.
  • Redhead In Green: In her spy outfit.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: A red haired girl with green eyes.
  • Spoiled Sweet: She comes from a very well off Beverly Hills family but Sam isn't really a snob—though she can be a bit full of herself at times, she's ultimately a very nice and polite girl...as long as you don't get on her bad side.
  • The Smart Girl: She's usually the one who takes control over the girls' missions and puts her smarts to use.
  • Team Mom: She's generally the most mature and responsible of the main three.
  • Tomboyish Name: "Samantha" is her real name, but nearly everyone calls her "Sam." Usually the only people who actually call her by her real name are her teachers and occasionally Jerry, while, as mentioned above, Clover and Alex (usually Alex) also sometimes call her "Sammy" (which in itself is kind of tomboyish name).
  • TV Genius: Some episodes give her shades of this.

    Clover 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/download_26_7500.jpg
Voiced by: Andrea Baker

Clover has medium blonde hair, blue eyes and a red catsuit. Probably the show's most stereotypical character, Clover is a shopping addicted, boy crazy, teenage "fashionista". She pursues a Fashion Design-major when she and her friends start college.


  • A Day in the Limelight: With Sam and Alex infatuated by the villain's evil scheme in "Matchmaker", Clover is the one that has to bring him down.
  • Arch-Enemy: Geraldine, and arguably Mandy. Sometimes she has a friendly rivalry with Sam.
  • Allergic to Routine: Clover tends gets bored rather easily. Perhaps this may explain why she has an obsession with boys...
  • Ambition Is Evil: Clover usually tries to get famous. In fact, such a behavior is strongly explicit during the episode "Model Citizens" in which Clover and Mandy compete in a beauty contest. There are many other examples though.
  • And Now You Must Marry Me: At least three times, a villain has kidnapped her with the intent of making her his "queen".
    • The black knight villain in "stuck in the middle ages with you", kidnaps her and chooses her as his queen because of her beauty, though he was very sexist and would likely have treated her as another slave than a queen.
    • Dr. Gelee in the episode "The Iceman Cometh" takes her to be his companion and "ice queen".
    • Salty Scooter became smitten with her and tried to force her to become his "pirate queen".
  • Attack Reflector: Clover gets the "Satellite Dish Pen" in "Super Nerd Much?" which she uses in the climax, to reflect the green energy beam of the Cats Eye Emerald back at it.
  • Balloon Belly: She gets pretty fat in "Passion Patties," after gorging herself on Ms. Bittersweet's cookies. The only way to get rid of the fat was to use an antidote.
  • Berserk Button: Don't dare to say that Clover uses clothes bought in a liquidation. It never ends well. She doesn't like being turned down by a guy as well.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: He's not her really her father but some of Clover's whining to Jerry's assignments could be compared to a teenager whining about a chore their parent's told them to do. Since he's never appeared in the series, it's unknown if Clover acts bratty towards her own father but given her somewhat spoiled nature, it could be probable.
  • Break the Cutie: One episode had her facing rejection from a guy she liked, and she spent the rest of the episode very depressed and even stopped caring about her appearance in the process, which really worried Sam and Alex. She didn't snap out of this funk until the guy reveals that the reason he turned her down is because he already had a girlfriend.
  • Butt-Monkey: She gets this more often than the other girls. There are some occasions where Sam or Alex gets this end of the stick, though.
  • Cat Girl: She became a catgirl in the episode "Wild Style" after being injected with a serum.
  • Clothing Damage: This happens A LOT to Clover. This is especially explored during "Attack Of The 50 Foot Mandy".
  • Corrupt the Cutie: This happens to Clover's intern, Tara, due to Clover's influence. She's not seen recovering.
  • Call to Agriculture: She had to visit a farm during "Spies on the Farm".
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Sometimes she gets lost in her dreams, specially during missions.
  • Cyborg: To a certain degree in "Super Agent Much?" due to the Super Agent bionic upgrades. Even her own left eye had been turned into a laser, and she was machine enough to be affected by her own invention and be badly electrocuted upon contact with water.
  • Deadly Upgrade: She becomes a super agent during "Super Agent Much?". Do you want more?
  • Distracted by the Sexy: More than once, she has been distracted by a hot guy during missions, much to the annoyance of her friends.
  • Drama Queen: Not as extreme as most examples, but she has shades of this behavior.
  • Dumb Blonde: Sometimes. She's usually smarter than she lets on. Clover is actually fairly intelligent and very resourceful but she seems to have a short attention span to anything not related to fashion, boys, celebrities and opportunities to become famous.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: She's the blonde girl of the trio and is the one who has gone on the most dates, though it's mostly because she is the most boy crazy of the team.
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • While Clover is obsessed with her appearance, even she felt it was rather ridiculous that Mandy passed out over something as silly as a broken nail.
    • Despite being a Drama Queen, she more than once openly criticized the Villain of the Week's motive for their scheme, which is usually something very petty 99% of the time.
    • In "Stuck In The Middle Ages With You", she refused the advances of the villain, who honestly was as attractive as some of the guys she goes after, because he is a sexist, not to mention a megalomania criminal bent on taking over the world.
  • Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Occasionally does this.
  • The Fashionista: Has always been this, and she pursues fashion design as a major as of Season 6.
  • Girly Bruiser: Clover plays the trope the straightest as she's the most girly and feminine of the three.
  • Girly Girl: As mentioned above, Clover's the most feminine of her and her friends. In fact, in the beginning of "Spies on the Farm," Sam and Alex started complaining that Clover's too much of one to really get "down and dirty," to which Clover decided to prove them wrong (and did, which ultimately ended up saving the three of them).
  • Good Bad Girl: She's ultimately a good person, but she also likes flirting and dating...a lot.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: This happens many times with Clover. For example, during the episodes "Sis-KaBOOM-Bah!" and "Evil Sorority" when she "fights" alongside with Mandy like...uh...best friends? Well, she was under mind-control both times, so it's not like she was willingly hanging out with Mandy.
  • Granola Girl: Stated to be a vegetarian, but her love of fish and seafood would technically make a "pescetarian" (a semi-vegetarian that eats fish and seafood).
  • Hormone-Addled Teenager: The most boy-crazy of the trio, that one episode even laments her trying to find a date for her debutante ball because she "dated all the boys in Beverly Hills".
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: Happens to Clover way too many times to count.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Clovers suits well here. She is strong, but not the strongest. She is smart, but not the smartest. In fact, even Jerry had problems justifying her presence in the team (during the episode "Like, So Totally Not Spies").
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She can be shallow, snobby, and conceited, but is a loyal friend to Alex and Sam.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Too many times to count.
  • Let Me at Him!: Often has to be held back by Sam and Alex to keep her from jumping on Mandy.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: In contrast to Mandy, who was more of a classic Alpha Bitch. While Clover can be kind of a jerk at times, she is actually quite nice and does understand the importance of friendship and teamwork.
  • Not So Different: Despite their hatred for each other, Clover and Mandy have similarities. They are both vain about their appearance and can be boy crazy. They also don't care too much about their academics. The difference is that despite Clover's bad traits, she's still a good person to others. Mandy, on the other hand, is a jerkass and a narcissist.
  • Odd Name Out: In more ways than one:
    • Clover's the only that doesn't go by a nickname, since Sam's real name is "Samantha" and Alex's real name is "Alexandra."
    • Clover's the only one to not have a Tomboyish Name (seems rather fitting, since she's the most feminine of the three).
    • "Sam" and "Alex" (as well as the names that they're short for) are fairly common names while "Clover" (though it is an actual name) isn't nearly as common.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Whenever she begins to behave differently from her usual perky/fashion loving/boy crazy behavior, Sam and Alex take this as a warning sign that something is wrong with her.
  • Otaku: "Zooney World" has her reading untranslated manga in her room.
  • Pink Is Feminine: All three girls wear this color throughout the series, but Clover wears it the most when she's out of uniform. Hell, pink would have been her Color Motif if it wasn't for her red catsuit.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Has this relationship with Mandy.
  • Serial Romeo: Any episode where the subplot focuses on the love lives of any of the girls (or all three), Clover has a new boyfriend almost every time—Blaine's the only love interest of hers to last more than one episode in a relationship with Clover.
  • Skewed Priorities: Sometimes. Clover finds herself caring more about fashion and boys than about the missions she and the girls go on.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: Due to being the biggest Butt-Monkey of the trio. A good idea for a drinking game: if you happen to be watching a Totally Spies marathon or are watching the show on DVD, take a drink every time something bad happens to Clover. You won't be sober for long.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: She seems to have a natural tendency for love.
  • Sore Loser: At times—she absolutely can't stand losing to Mandy.
  • Space Whale Aesop: One episode has Clover declaring that it's better to have a big head than to have a big everything else.
  • Strapped to an Operating Table: In "Starstruck."
  • Valley Girl: Clover's fluent in surf lingo and Valley Girl-style slang terms.
  • Zerg Rush: Clover was leading the fandom of Ricky Mathis during the episode "A Thing For Musicians" in a very dangerous way.

    Alex 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/download_25_9673.jpg
Voiced by: Katie Leigh (Season 1-2), Katie Griffin (Season 3-6)

Alexandra (more commonly called "Alex") has short black hair, tan skin, light brown eyes and her spy catsuit is yellow. Alex is the most naive and innocent of the group, and she's interested in sports and athletics. She pursues a Veterinarian major in University.


  • Adorkable: She's a cute sporty girl, sometimes awkward, ditzy and naive, and very friendly.
  • Afraid of Doctors: But not as much as she is of orthodontists; those are worse.
  • Agent Mulder: Typically the one to believe in curses and superstitions.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Alex is the youngest and most childlike and is often seen as the little sister of the group, as Sam and Clover are the two big sisters who dominate over her.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Though Alex is typically the friendliest and most sweet natured of the spies, she can be quite mean and/or scary when she's angry.
  • Big Eater: Even though she may be the most healthy of the three spies, she likes to eat the most. In "Evil Valentine's Day," we see that she has a dream about candy. In the beginning part of the B-story in "The New Jerry" and the ending of "Animal World," we see her eating nonstop. It can be somewhat justified due to the fact that she is an athlete and the most athletic member of the team and real athletes tend to burn more calories than regular people, which may explain her appetite.
  • The Big Gal: Being the most athletic of the trio, though she's also The Chick and The Heart.
  • Butt-Monkey: At times, mostly because of her clumsiness and naivete.
  • Character Tics: In "Evil Valentine's Day", it is shown Alex sucks her thumb while sleeping.
  • Cat Girl: Got her turn in Season 6 when she got scratched by mutated cat claw. Unlike Clover, she actually liked the change and asked Jerry if she could keep it.
  • The Chick: The most optimistic of the trio.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Ironic, since she's the athlete of the group.
  • Daddy's Girl: Even if her father can be rather embarrassing at times, it's clear that Alex and her dad are very close and clearly really love each other.
  • The Ditz: Though Clover is more of a blonde Valley Girl stereotype, Alex is often the ditziest of the three.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Typically portrayed as being the worst driver of the three spies—according to them, Alex barely passed Driver's Education and she had to take the road test to get her driver's license at least four times. But from season three and onwards, she's often the one to drive, and it's shown that her driving skills have improved.
  • Friend to All Children: "Halloween" reveals Alex is very good at getting along with children.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She actually wanted to grow up and either be a veterinarian or study animal physiology. One episode even has her bringing home a stray puppy she found and there is also her love for her pet pig Oinky.
  • Gamer Chick: One of the things Alex loves to do is play video games.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: She considers a stuff toy turtle to be her oldest friend (she's had it since she was two) and she's been shown with a teddy bear backpack.
  • The Heart: Very much so, she tries to keep her friends together, and is often the mediator between Clover and Sam.
  • In-Series Nickname: Her full first name is "Alexandra," but everyone call her "Alex".
  • Kindly Vet: The major that Alex pursues as of Season 6.
  • The Kirk: Even though Sam's the leader, she's more of the captain in this case.
  • The Klutz: Despite being the most athletic, she tends to be rather clumsy, and has been prone to bad luck.
  • Mixed Ancestry: In "Alex Gets Schooled," her dad's shown to be white while her mother appears to be of Hispanic descent, but in Season 6 of "Evil Ice Skater" writers forget this and depict her father as looking like her.
  • Nice Girl: By far one of the nicest character in the series.
  • Odango Hair: Wore this hairstyle frequently during the earlier seasons.
  • Only Sane Woman: Sometimes, especially when Sam and Clover are bickering.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: The most athletic of the three, although her favorite sport appears to be soccer.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Though Alex has been portrayed with the smallest amount of love interests of the three spies, pretty much all the guys she ends up falling for are definite nice guys.
  • Sweet Tooth: Frequently played for laughs in the 6th season.
  • Tomboy: She loves sports and video games.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: While she's obviously the most tomboyish of the main three, Alex is also really into fashion and boys, sometimes to the same extremes as Clover.
  • Tomboyish Name: "Alex" is short for Alexandra.
  • Trademark Favorite Food:
    • She loves Asian cuisine—especially Chinese food.
    • Her favorite type of muffin is natural bran.
    • She also has a liking for anything sweet like candy as she dreams about it one time.

     Gerald James "Jerry" Lewis 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5039539.png
Voiced by: Jess Harnell (Season 1-2), Adrian Truss (Season 3-6)

The founder and administrator of W.O.O.H.P., the World Organization Of Human Protection, Jerry is responsible for briefing the girls on their missions. He's generally very serious and professional but he does have a sense of humour, even if it is sometimes a slightly nasty one.


  • Accidental Pervert: A milder example, but one episode has him summon the girls early in the morning and recording their interactions with a camcorder. At one point, he does a close up on Sam, who happens to be in a towel in the process. Jerry is quite embarrassed over it.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: In one episode, even the heroines are very surprised at how well Jerry can handle himself in a fight.
  • Benevolent Boss: He excuses the girls from class, gives them nifty gadgets, and often sends thank-you gifts in the mail.
  • Big Good: The leader of WOOHP, an organization meant to fight crime and protect civilians.
  • British Stuffiness: Quite serious and stuffy, and very British.
  • Catchphrase: "Oh, my!" and "Ta-ta for now!", amongst others.
  • Cool Old Guy: On the rare occasion that he's personally called into action, he consistently outclasses the Spies themselves. Despite his thin and non-athletic appearance, he has in fact demonstrated highly impressive combat and piloting skills superior to those displayed by the girls themselves, including running up (and down) the side of a building
  • Crazy-Prepared: He has a gadget for every mission, which almost always is exactly what the girls need.
  • A Father to His Men: In the final episode of season 5, Alex said he's been like a grandfather to them.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Despite being a master spy and the head of a major spy organization (or perhaps due to the pride that comes with the job), Jerry can be oblivious, inattentive, and overly trusting of people whom one really shouldn't trust. This is especially true in situations where the girls are right and he is wrong.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: According to a flashback, the only time he ever lied was when he cheated on a test to get through school. Unfortunately for him, his brother ended up taking the blame, causing him to become his evil twin.
  • It Amused Me: Pretty much the only reason he does half the things to the girls that he does (coming up with increasingly uncomfortable methods of transporting them, monitoring their every move, putting them through insane tests, etc) is because he thinks it's funny.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Does A LOT of stuff to the girls For the Lulz, particularly his methods of transporting them, but has also saved their lives a number of times. The series Fauxnale even has him admit that he will miss the spies and that he loves them as if they were his own granddaughters, which the girls feel the same way.
  • My Beloved Smother: Jerry's mum cracks a tough whip.
  • My Greatest Failure: Selling his brother out when they got caught cheating on an exam when they were kids.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite his years of experience, there're a few times when Jerry falls victim to whatever scheme the Villain of the Week is enacting because he's made the same kind of mistakes the girls sometimes do. He tastes a Passion Patty cookie despite knowing there's something wrong with them, and ends up getting addicted and just as fat as Clover does. He also falls victim to Natalie Valentine's brainwashing cologne and ends up as one of her mindlessly devoted boy toys.
  • Papa Wolf: More than once he saved the girls lives and helped them take down the villain.
  • Parental Substitute: He acts as a parental figure to the girls and, at times, scolds them when they messed up. They even share plenty of heartwarming moments. One time he even acts as their father briefly for a talent camp mission. He even shows genuine concern for them outside of missions and even helps them such as proving Clover's innocence when Mandy framed her for shop lifting, finding a tutor for Alex when her grades were slipping and even FLOODING Mandy and Mindy out of the girls apartment and restoring it back to normal after seeing how the girls reacted to the hideous decor they created.
  • Percussive Prevention: In one episode he's zapped with a device that forces him to tell the truth to anyone. After the villain is defeated using a stun ray, the girl's realize they could learn some "dirt" on him before the truth device wears of (since there's no antidote for it). Jerry's solution? He zaps himself with the stun ray, effectively knocking him out and the truth serum wears off.
  • Sand In My Eyes: When he has to announce the disbanding of WOOHP to the girls in "S.P.I.", he excuses himself from them and tells them he has something in his eye.
  • Theme Twin Naming: "Terry" and "Jerry". Oh, and the spin-off reveals they have a sister named Sherry.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: He was this with Myrna—they're roughly the same height, but when it comes to build, she's considerably larger than he is. However, it turns out that she wanted to take over WOOHP.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: The girls were absolutely FURIOUS when he didn't believe in their innocence and had planned to apprehend them to LOBOTOMIZE them. Even when he apologizes, the girls are still rightly angry with him and says that it would take much more than an apology to make things right between them.

Introduced in Seasons 2–3 as the newest recruit to the team.

     G.L.A.D.I.S 
Voiced by: Stevie Vallance

G.L.A.D.I.S. (Gadget Lending And Distribution Interactive System) was introduced in the episode "Physics 101 Much?" of Season 3, as a Gadget lending device.

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: G.L.A.D.I.S. is usually just annoying, but not evil. However, in one episode, (at an office Christmas party that Jerry pretty much dragged the three protagonists too) she becomes homicidal after Alex spills punch on her cabinet. Jerry later admits, embarrassed, that he programmed her by downloading the intelligence from the brain of an insane Evil Genius who is in prison for trying to start World War III, and when they question the inmate, they find out that he's allergic to cranberries (which make him "even crazier than usual"); Alex realizes that the punch was cranberry-flavored. The Spies are forced to accept the madman's help before G.L.A.D.I.S. carries out his original plan, which involves tricking the world's superpowers into launching its nuclear arsenals at each other.
  • Artificial Intelligence: She appears to have a mind of her own, even sometimes claiming she's the true leader of WOOHP. In several episodes she ignores Jerry's orders and distributes the gadgets she believes are needed for the mission.
  • Computer Voice: She speaks with a female voice.
  • Put on a Bus: In the episode "Evil Roommate" Jerry had G.L.A.D.I.S. dismantled due to her attitude—the real life reason was that the fans didn't like her.

L.A.M.O.S

     General 
  • Fun with Acronyms: It stands for the League Aiming to Menace and Overthrow Spies. Unfortunately for Terrence, the one who came up with the name, he realized too late what the acronym spells. Embarrassed, he said it's too late to change it since he already printed the name on the group's merchandise.

     Terrence Lewis 
Voiced by: Matt Charles

  • Always Identical Twins: As children, they were identical, but Terry had plastic surgery as an adult — presumably because he wanted an identity outside of being Jerry's twin.
  • Big Bad: For Season 4, anyway.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Jerry's Abel.
  • Evil Brit: And an actual Brit.
  • Evil Twin: To Jerry.

  • Card-Carrying Villain: In his first appearance, Clover calls him out on the scumbag he is. His response? A small "Thank you." To be fair, he's far from the only villain in the show who exhibits this behavior.
  • Co-Dragons: With Boogie Gus and Helga Von Guggen in Season 4.
  • Evil Genius: He's a crafty little scam artist.
  • Greed: His main motive. Averted in his first appearance, where he wanted to drain the Earth of its water supply, which would have undoubtedly killed all life on the planet (including himself).
  • Hypocrite: Feels that WHOOP never appreciated his genius and the technological advances he brought to the organization, despite the fact that he used said technology for his own selfish interests.
  • Recurring Character: Has made more appearances than any other villain in the series to date, including Terry.
  • The Sociopath: Very likely, considering that his reasons for becoming evil aren't as petty as most of the other recurring villains. Most of the others suffer from (rather minor) disappointments that cause them to snap. Scam, however, is depicted as perfectly sane (for the most part) and practically kills people for its own sake.
  • Sdrawkcab Alias: Mac Smit. This trope actually becomes a plot-point in one episode, where they finally realize who he really is because they see his name-tag reflected backwards in a metal panel.

     Boogie Gus 
Voiced by: Joe Motiki

  • Almighty Janitor: Before becoming a villain, he originally worked for WOOHP as part of the custodial staff.
  • Co-Dragons: With Tim Scam and Helga Von Guggen in Season 4.
  • Disco Dan: An African-American 1970s/1980s loving villain/former WOOHP janitor.
  • Funny Afro: Has a afro hairstyle.
  • Make Wrong What Once Went Right: His first appearance had him travel back in time to become Jerry's friend and convince him to create an evil version of WOOHP called the "World Organization of Harming People."

     Myrna Beesbottom 
A former W.H.O.O.P. member. She worked as the girls' "nanny", enforcing strict rules to keep them under control. Her plan involved marrying Jerry so that she could take over W.H.O.O.P.

  • Falling-in-Love Montage: She had one with Jerry. Too bad it was all lie.
  • Revenge: Why she joined L.A.M.O.S.
  • Team Mom: What she seemed like at first.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: She was involved with Jerry and even married him at one point. However, this was part of her plan to take down W.H.O.O.P.

    Helga Von Guggen 
A German fashion designer who wanted to skin humans alive, much like Cruella de Vil.
Voiced by: Adrienne Barbeau
  • Genuine Human Hide: Guggen transforms people into Beast Men in an attempt to skin them alive and make clothes out of them. Her introductory episode has her showing off her latest fashion which she boasts was made out of genuine "lawyer."
  • Hate Sink: On top of being a murderous monster, she's also a greedy, self-centered hag with no likeable qualities whatsoever, not even having Evil Is Cool points to save her.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Being a greedy Serial Killer whose first appearance involves her happily trying to make coats out of human beings, Guggen is easily one of the show's darkest villains.
  • Revenge: Her plan in her second appearance revolves around this. Her plan? Create a new line of clothes that literally crushes people to death. The only thing that saves the people wearing them is steam.
  • Serial Killer: In her first appearance, she tried to skin a ship containing two hundred transformed people alive, using their furs to make clothing out of them.

Civilian

    Mandy 
Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

  • Alpha Bitch: She is a textbook case of this trope (contrasting Clover's more Lovable Alpha Bitch). Extra points for being shallow.
  • Annoying Laugh: Mandy has a really annoying laugh. It sounds like a goat's bleating.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: On the high school side of things, but mostly just in the first season. She usually manages to steal Clover's love interest due to some circumstances like giving up a date. In Model Citizens she eventually comes out on top when she and Clover compete in a beauty contest (again, due to the circumstances)
  • Beauty Mark: She has one on her face just below her left eye.
  • Big Bad: Once as a Future Badass where she nearly took over the world. And of the one hour Totally Busted special when she and her lackies get infected by a shampoo that makes them "spy hunters" bent on killing Sam, Clover and Alex.
  • Book Dumb:
    • In the b-plot of Dental? More Like Mental!, Mandy's revealed to be failing her chemistry class and her mom, Phoebe, grounded her and took away her credit cards until her grades improved.
    • In the b-plot of Alex Gets Schooled, it's revealed that there was a mix-up at school among some of the report cards (like Alex and Mandy accidentally getting each other's report cards) and Mandy's ultimately revealed to have gotten straight-Fs, in stark contrast to Alex getting As and Bs. Phoebe ends up grounding Mandy for the rest of the school year because of her terrible grades.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: Though Mandy certainly is very pretty she has a very grating voice in addition to her annoying laugh.
  • Damsel in Distress: She gets mistaken for Clover and kidnapped in one episode, resulting in the Spies having to bail her out. Likewise a Halloween episode had the spies have to save her from zombies which she herself had accidentally summoned.
  • Dark Action Girl: While under the effects of the SUDS, she and her Girl Posse become dangerous spy-killers.
  • Evil Counterpart: Maybe not necessarily "evil" (she's more "high school evil" than "regular evil"), but Mandy and Clover are pretty similar to each other to a certain extent—also, when you really get down to it, Mandy is essentially what Clover would be like if she were meaner/snobbier and had no redeeming qualities.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: She wears a lot of purple on the show—rarely does she wear something that's not purple. Even all the spysuits she wore on the show are purple.
  • Hate Sink: She's a selfish Spoiled Brat and and Alpha Bitch who causes trouble for the girls for the pettiest of reasons.
  • Jerkass: Usually snobby and mean whenever she's seen.
  • Narcissist: Mandy comes off as this with her constant bragging about how popular and beautiful she is. She's arrogant, vain, loves all types of attention, and she also has a terrible attitude to boot.
  • Only One Name: It's unknown what her last name is—all that can be gathered is that "Mandy" is her actual name and not short for something like "Amanda" or "Miranda."
  • Pet the Dog: Surprisingly, Mandy has shown the capacity to be a genuinely nice person, but it never lasts long and she always goes back to being mean again if she's provoked in some way.
  • Popular Is Dumb: Mandy was arguably the most popular girl in school back when she and the spies were in high school, but it was also shown that she wasn't a great student. While Clover and Alex weren't perfect students, they were nowhere near as bad as Mandy.
  • Purple Eyes: She has purple eyes that match her skin tone, personality and clothing.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The loud and aggressive Red Oni to her cousin Mindy's calm and collected Blue Oni.
  • Rich Bitch: It's been said (and shown) that Mandy comes from a very wealthy family.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: Mandy's this to the spies (to each of them as individuals as well as to all three as a group). However, she's typically shown to be more of a rival to Clover than she is to Sam or Alex—Clover and Mandy often compete over boys, popularity contests, bragging rights, the latest fashions, and virtually everything else.
  • Sixth Ranger: Yes, in one episode she wound up discovering the girls' secret and Jerry actually let her join WOOHP on the spot. Naturally, she wound up being a hindrance (though pivotal in stopping that episode's Big Bad) that come the end of the mission, she begged to be released, to which she was mindwiped of the whole events. In her defense, Jerry just threw Mandy into doing the mission with the girls without even doing any kind of basic training.
  • The Slacker: Wants to be famous without doing any of the work. She hires an intern, Trent, to pretty much do everything for her in season 6.
  • Sore Loser: Even more times than Clover herself.
  • Spoiled Brat: Her mother alternates between spoiling Mandy and disciplining her for lackluster grades.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: While she was never exactly the friendliest person ever, she becomes even worse in the sixth season—the biggest of example of this is being a Bad Boss to Trent, the intern she hires after she (somehow) becomes a celebrity.
  • Ungrateful Bitch:
    • She continues acting like a Jerkass to Sam, Clover, and Alex even after they saved her in an episode. Then again Mandy usually gets her memory erased afterwards, so she doesn't actually remember Sam, Clover and Alex saving her.
    • This is averted in an episode when Sam saves her hair from getting messed up in an art class. Mandy is so grateful, she tries hard to make friends with Sam, much to Sam's chagrin. This is reversed in the end when she, once again, gets her memory wiped after she finds out that Sam, Clover, and Alex are spies and she wants to tell everybody she knows.
  • Valley Girl: Even worse than Clover—and that's really saying something!

    Arnold Jackson 
Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker, Joshua Seth (America); Robert Tinkler (Canada)

  • Drunk with Power: Happened once when he accidentally found Cats Eye Emerald to drain people's cool aura into himself, nerdifying the victims. Even when Sam warned him the effects wouldn't last, that just had Arnold go into his scheme to drain the people of Beverly Hills of their cool aura to get as much as he could. It led to him fighting another Villain of the Week for control of the Emerald until a beam from the ring got reflected back at the ring, and took out the magic, undoing the draining of others and returning Arnold to his normal self.
    • The Glasses Come Off: When he gets the ring and gets into the gym, he takes off his glasses. He then showed off his boosted abilities in a game of dodgeball. But that was a hint of his Startof Darkness (he later nerdifies offscreen) and we next see him with an Evil Makeover (black leather jacket, white open shirt and grey slacks) before nerdifying Clover as well.
  • Nerd: He is apparently the stereotype of the geeks and nerds in school.

    David 
Voiced by: Darryl Kurylo

    Dominique and Caitlin 
Voiced by: Katie Griffin (Caitlin); Andrea Baker (Dominique)

  • Ambiguously Brown: Caitlin's this—with her green eyes and dark skin, she can be a dark-skined caucasian woman, a light-skinned South Asian or Middle Eastern woman, a mixed black woman etc.
  • Girl Posse: They both serve as Valley Girl Beta Bitches to Mandy and are easily just as mean, rude and snobby to people as Mandy is.
  • Satellite Character: Other than being Mandy's friends and occasional rivals to Sam (for Dominique) and Alex (for Caitlin) Dominique and Caitlin don't really add much to the story. They haven't been seen or mentioned since "Evil Graduation" (the first episode of the fifth season) and are ultimately replaced by Mandy's cousin, Mindy, who's basically just Mandy with blonde hair, a darker tan and a thick Southern accent.
  • With Friends Like These...: It goes both ways—Mandy isn't exactly the greatest "friend" to Dominique and Caitin, and Dominique and Caitlin don't really seem all that loyal to Mandy anyway. In fact, in "A Spy is Born (1)," it's revealed that Dominique and Caitlin are actually only friends with Mandy because she's popular.

    Mindy 
Mandy's cousin (who, if her accent is anything to go by, is originally from the South) who ends up being her roommate at Malibu University during the show's fifth season. Aside from her accent, hair color and skin tone, Mindy's pretty much identical to Mandy, to the point of where Sam once referred to them as the "Terror Twins." Another big difference between Mandy and Mindy is that Mindy's typically much calmer and more collected than Mandy, who's typically very loud and aggressive.
Voiced by: Katie Griffin

  • Alpha Bitch: Mindy's basically just a blonde clone of Mandy and has Mandy's jerkish personality.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She hasn't been seen or mentioned since "Totally Icky" (the second-to-last episode of the fifth season), and Mindy's disappearance is especially jarring since she appeared in almost every episode of Season 5.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: She has short blonde hair (in contrast to Mandy's long black hair) and darkly tanned skin (in contrast to Mandy's much paler complexion).
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The much more calm and collected Blue Oni to Mandy's much more loud and aggressive Red Oni.
  • Satellite Character: Much like with Dominique and Caitlin, Mindy doesn't add much to the show's story, other than serving as Mandy's cousin and her roommate at Mali-U.

    Trent 
Voiced by: Scott Beaudin

  • Absentee Actor: "Evil Ice Skater", "Inferior Designer!", "Little Dude" and "Danger TV" are the only season 6 episodes in which Mandy appears in without Trent.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Transforms into a human-scorpion hybrid in "Trent Goes Wild" when his mind wipe goes wrong.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: A male example.
  • Extreme Doormat: Is constantly bossed around by Mandy.
  • Satellite Character: Much like how Mindy replaced Dominique and Caitlin in Season 5, Trent ends up replacing Mindy in Season 6.

  • Fiery Redhead: Gabby seems to be more spitfire than her daughter .
  • Happily Married: The B-plot of "The Wedding Crasher" has Sam looking for a gift for her parents' 20th wedding anniversary.
  • In the Blood: In "W.O.W.," it's revealed that Gabby's great-great-grandmother (presumably the maternal grandmother of Gabby's maternal grandmother) was one of the original chosen ones of the Sisterhood (an ancient guild of warrior women that sought to metaphorically eradicate men and literally eradicate all non-chosen women).
  • My Beloved Smother: She's established as being overprotective of Sam.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Reaches down to her waist like her daughter.
  • Redhead In Green: In her spy outfit but to a lesser extent than Sam as it's more jade than emerald.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Like with Stella (Clover's mom) and Carmen (Alex's mom), Gabby looks identical to Sam (particularly in her second appearance), just older.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Trains for and becomes a full time spy in the Season 4 finale.

     Stella 
Voiced by: Kath Soucie (Season 2), Andrea Baker (Season 4-6)

Clover's mother.


  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The Blonde in both "Mommies Dearest" and "Totally Busted."
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In "Mommies Dearest."
  • Hospital Hottie: Looks like an older version of her daughter and is revealed to be a surgeon in the show's sixth season.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Spends the majority of "Mommies Dearest" in a swimsuit (one that she's said to have had since the 1970s, apparently).
  • Open-Minded Parent: At the end of "Nine Lives," upon learning that Clover wants to become a fashion designer instead of following in her mom's footsteps as a surgeon—while she was definitely a little angry at first, it was more because Clover simply didn't tell her the truth about what she really wanted to pursue.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Like with Gabby (Sam's mom) and Carmen (Alex's mom), Stella looks identical to Clover (especially in her second appearance), just older.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Trains for and becomes a full time spy in the Season 4 finale.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In "Mommies Dearest".
  • Education Mama: In "Alex Gets Schooled" her and Alex's father enroll their daughter at Dorsal Academy in England after it was assumed that Alex had gotten straight F’s on her report card (although it later turned out that Alex had gotten A’s and B’s and that Mandy was the one who had gotten straight F’s).
  • I Want Grandkids: A mild example. When she's not upset over Alex's grades, she's encouraging Alex to look for a boyfriend.
  • Shipper on Deck: To any guy she thinks her daughter likes.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Like with Gabby (Sam's mom) and Stella (Clover's mom), Carmen looks identical to Alex (especially in her second and third appearances), just older.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Trains for and becomes a full time spy in the Season 4 finale.

     Phoebe 
Mandy's mother.
  • Education Mama: Seems to be this to some extent—in "Dental? More Like Mental!," Phoebe took away Mandy's credit cards and grounded her after discovering that she was apparently failing some of her classes. And in "Alex Gets Schooled," after it turns out that there was mix-up among some of the report cards at Bev High (like Alex and Mandy accidentally getting each other's report cards), Phoebe grounds Mandy after it turns out that Mandy had gotten straight-Fs on her report card.
  • Good Parents: While it's clear that Mandy's pretty spoiled by her parents, Phoebe (similar to Charlotte Pickles from Rugrats) isn't afraid to discipline her daughter when she really deserves it. See Education Mama above.
  • Granola Girl: She was a hippie back in the 1970s and still carries a bit of the distinction as an adult, at least in her debut episode when she's finally seen as an adult.
  • Nice Girl: "Nice" is kind of stretch, but she doesn't appear to be as mean, rude and snobby as her daughter is.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Apparently so as she's able to buy up a whole line of clothing before it's even out yet.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Just like with spies' mothers, Phoebe looks identical to Mandy, just older—in fact, when the spies accidentally traveled back in time to 1975 (when Phoebe herself was a student at Beverly Hills High School), they initially mistook Phoebe for Mandy until they finally realized what happened.

     Mrs. Lewis 
Jerry's elderly mother. A helicopter parent who's eventually revealed to have been a spy during her youth. Despite her advanced age, she is just as strong as her son and the spies.
  • Granny Classic: She has gray hair, wears old fashioned clothes and is very proper and picky about manners and etiquette.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She was blonde during her youth and she had been a spy for the force of good.
  • In the Blood: She claims that Jerry inherited all of his skills from her, and since she is still very skilled in her old age, it seems to be true.
  • I Was Quite the Looker: A flashback showed that she was very beautiful in her younger years, as beautiful as the spies are actually and even wore a revealing spy outfit.
  • My Beloved Smother: She's the only person that Jerry truly knuckles under and she's very nitpicky over his posture and behavior.
  • Never Mess with Granny: Don't let her age and frail appearance fool you—she's still strong enough to give her son (who's the head of major spy organization as well as a master spy himself) and his top agents a challenge.
  • Parental Favoritism: While it's unknown if she's truly aware of Terry and Sherry's status as criminals, Jerry claims that he's her favorite child.

     Alex's father 
Alex's dad and Carmen's husband.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: He is constantly giving his daughter cutesy names, is very overly enthusiastic with giving her affection in public and even wore a t-shirt with her face on it, apparently not realizing that he was embarrassing her.
  • No Name Given: Unlike his wife, it's never revealed what his first name (or his last name) is. He's just called "Dad" by Alex.
  • Race Lift: He was white in "Alex Gets Schooled" but in season 6, he looks kind of like an older male-version of his daughter.

     Sam's father 
Sam's dad and Gabby's husband.
  • Fiction 500: Implied since Sam says that he and his wife (Sam's mother) already have "one of everything" which includes a lot of expensive, luxurious stuff like a personal mani-pedi robot and having his portrait done professionally in the Louvre. There's also the fact that his family lives in Beverly Hills, his daughter is able to go on many expensive shopping spree's without worry and many other minor examples.
  • Happily Married: To his wife Gabby. Season 6's episode "The Wedding Crasher" had Sam trying to find the perfect gift for their 20th anniversary.
  • No Name Given: Like with Alex's dad, his name is never revealed in the series.

     Clover's father 
Clover's (unseen) father and Stella's husband.
  • The Ghost: Unlike with Sam and Alex's dads (who're both seen in person at some point in the series), Clover's dad is the only one who's never been seen in person at any point in the series—however, he has been mentioned (both directly and indirectly) and it's indicated that Clover's parents (like Sam and Alex's parents) are in fact married.
  • No Name Given: Just like Sam and Alex's dads, his name is never revealed.

     Norman "Normie" 
Clover's kid cousin and Stella's nephew who appears "Zooney World" and is seen again in the Season 6 episode "Danger TV".

Other Villains

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: With the help of a magic belt, she can awaken the fighting spirit of the Sisterhood's descendants.
  • In the Blood: How Ariel finds her soldiers. She possesses a family tree that tracks down all the Sisterhood's descendants.
  • Put on a Bus: Despite it hinting that Ariel and the Sisterhood will rise again, she has not made another appearance.

     Bertha Bombshell 
One of Jerry's old girlfriends and a former beauty queen who steals an experimental serum in order to regain her youth and glory in the pageant scene.
  • Never My Fault: She blamed the spies for her mutated state, never mind the fact that they tried to warn her of its effects.
  • Old Flame: When Jerry realizes who Bertha truly is, he reveals to the spies that Bertha's an old girlfriend of his.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Unlike most of the villains (who are motivated by revenge), Bertha had taken the serum just to make herself young in order to get another chance at pageant stardom and only became Ax-Crazy once the serum began to make her deformed as a result. She honestly never seems to consider getting revenge on Miss Flounder (the woman who had beaten her in the Miss Fish-and-Chips pageant) and only begins attacking the audience when the host of the pageant disqualified her.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: According to her ex-boyfriend, Bertha was apparently very nice before she got 2nd-place in Miss Fish-and-Chips, which caused to become very bitter and vindictive as a result.
  • Vanity Is Feminine: She is a former beauty queen who never took well to losing the Ms. Fish and Chips pageant.

     Candy Sweet 
Her birth name being "Margaret Nussbaum," she's a villainous cheerleading coach who is determined to destroy the world of cheerleading out of revenge for being rejected by by the Honeybees-cheerleading squad when she was in high school (Jerry reveals to the spies that Coach Sweet went to the same high school as the Honeybees, but had graduated ten years earlier). She's also an engineer in robotics, which is how she was able to create the Black Widow cheerleader war robots.
  • Evil Is Petty: Pretty much the whole reason Candy turned evil is because she's still bitter about not making the Honeybees-cheerleading squad when she tried out for it back in high school.
  • Mind Control: In her second appearance, Candy sends out cheerleading-themed exercise DVDs as part of her rehabilitation, but it later turns out that the DVDs (called "Sweet Moves") have mind control properties, and hypnotize anyone who watches them into becoming what essentially amount to cheerleading Super Soldiers with one goal in mind: free Candy and help her destroy the "vapid" world of cheerleading.
  • Sore Loser: That's just putting it mildly.

     Captain Hayes 
A psychotic plane/submarine/blimp captain with a severe case of Celebrity Worship Syndrome. A very, very, very severe case.

Such as use a super advanced jet to reverse the rotation and time on earth, flood the earth so that only he and his captive celebrities in his submarine are the only survivors and steal the talents of any celebrities he kidnaps in his blimp.

  • Loony Fan: Replace "loony" with "psychotic."

     Cosmo Stratus 
A crazy woman who was kicked out of the space program, for failing to pass the psychological testing 15 times.She invented a machine to nullify the Earth's gravitational pull in order to "bring space to her" but was thwarted by the girls.
  • Idiot Ball: Even if she's crazy, Cosmo is clearly skilled in rocket science but she never considers the option that she could have just easily build her own rocket to send her to space instead of a gravity nullifying machine.
  • Mad Scientist: Emphasis on the MAD.
  • Never My Fault: She blames NASA from keeping her from achieving her dream of traveling to space because they failed her in the psychological test....never mind the fact that the only reason they kept failing her is because she is already visibly unstable.
  • Tomboyish Name: "Cosmo" is more common a man's name than a woman's name.
  • Wanting Is Better Than Having: Her final scene shows her finally in space...only to reveal that she is terrified of the dark and now wants to return to Earth.

     Diminutive Smalls 
A very, very SMALL mad scientist villain who tried to tried to steal the world monuments by shrinking them down to his size but he was thwarted by the spies. He was once a former WOOHP agent who tried to make people stronger by shrinking them, only for it to backfire on him and his siblings.
  • Revenge: His goal in "Attack of the 50 foot Mandy," was to get revenge on the girls, particularly Clover.

     Felicity Fences

     The Knight Villain 
An unnamed knight theme villain who tried to use a time machine to overthrow a medieval king and take over his kingdom, which would have lead to a chain reactions which would make him ruler of the world.
  • And Now You Must Marry Me: He is actually the first villain to do this as he was taken with Clover because of her good looks and tried to make her his "queen".
  • Straw Misogynist: He outright tells Clover that his queen is "all about obedience" and it's implied that he wasn't going to actually treat Clover like a queen, just as another slave and expect her behave like women did during medieval times.
  • Villainous Crush: He had one on Clover, much to her dismay.

     Jazz Hands 
A mime theme villain who is determined to make mimes stay in the spotlight, with him as the leader of his "mime empire".
  • Everyone Hates Mimes: His motive for becoming evil is because he feel that mimes don't get the recognition he feels they deserve.

  • Villainous Crush: He develops one on Sam's evil mime persona, Miss Spirit Fingers, and even wanted to make her his queen of mimes.
  • Your Mime Makes It Real: One of his abilities is that he can trap his enemies in the "invisible box" he mimes.

     John Smith 
Voiced by: Mark Hamill

A principal who is actually more than 800 years old, having discovered three Sumatran gems that can drain the life force out of people and give him eternal youth.


  • Killed Off for Real: When the gem at the concert exploded in his proximity, Smith turns into nothing but a pile of dust in Sam's hand.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Heck, he's even older than that! He's been around since the 12th century, draining the life energy out of people to preserve his youth.

  • Evil Is Sexy: He is very handsome but also a master jewel thief who is no above hurting people in order to carry out his crimes.
  • Reality Ensues: He is basically what would happen if a criminal from the real world was dropped into the Totally Spies! universe. As he's targeting the Uzbekistan Pearl, the spies enter the vault to stop Katz while holding up said pearl. He just grabs the pearl, slams the vault door right in their faces, changes the lock code, and then leaves.

     Max Exterminus 
A prize-winning exterminator who believed his job was a waste of time since he couldn't kill all the bugs in his neighborhood, let alone all the bugs in the world. So he decided, if he couldn't beat them, he would join them...or in his case, led them as king of the insects. He did this by turning himself into a half human-half cockroach mutant and attempted to rid the world of all life forms except bugs.
  • And Now You Must Marry Me: He called Alex his queen of all insects, having been captivated by her looks and her dangerous lifestyle as a spy. He transformed her into a human/cockroach-hybrid just like him and claimed he and Alex will have larvae together, much to her disgust.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: He seemed genuinely hurt when Alex squirted bug spray in his face and left him to die.
  • Killed Off for Real: After the rocket containing his bug venom began to crash, Max refused to let it go, claiming it to be his life's work and was killed when the rocket exploded on impact.
  • Villainous Crush: He developed one on Alex, comparing her to a black widow spider. "You're dark, leggy, and I'm certain, quite dangerous."

     O.P Parents 
A group of parents of a seemingly perfect community that is secretly brainwashing their teenagers and were eventually stopped by the spies.
  • Abusive Parents: The fact that they were trying to BRAINWASH their own children is just the tip of the iceberg with them.
  • Control Freak: That is putting it very, VERY MILDLY. The O.P. stands for Oceanic Palisades, but in reality, it should stand for "overprotective parents".
  • Disappointed by the Motive: Sam even calls them pathetic since they seemed afraid of their own children.
  • Moral Guardian: Taken to extreme Knight Templar levels as they had not only brainwash their children into behaving like "perfect citizens" but they placed strict 7:00 curfews, took away the mall, television, rock music and anything they felt was "dangerous". Talk about overprotective!
  • Stepford Suburbia

     Salty Schooner 
A pirate theme villain who tried to steal the WOOHP-Tanic and force Clover to be his "pirate queen".
  • Ax-Crazy: He goes from wanting to steal the WOOHP Tanic ship to try and FLOOD THE EARTH after he learns of the powerful laser on board.
  • Love at First Sight: Experiences this once he sees Clover dressed in her pirate chic clothes.
  • A Pirate 400 Years Too Late: He looks, dresses, talks and acts like a real pirate.
  • Ruthless Modern Pirates: He comes from a long line of sea pirates and wants to use the WOOHP-Tanic as his new ship.
  • Talk Like a Pirate: It's unknown if this is his real accent or if it's just for show.
  • Villainous Crush: He is the third bad guy to have one on Clover, which is extremely one sided.

     Wera Vann 
A former wedding dress designer who tried to ruin high profile weddings with her weaponized dresses, only to be defeated by the spies.
  • Action Fashionista: An evil example, as she's a villainous fashion designer.
  • Idiot Ball: To put it as simply as possible, Wera's entire motivation for becoming a villain is because she's mad that her wedding dresses were only worn once before basically being locked away in a closet, never to be worn again. Wera doesn't seem to get that, when you get right down to it, pretty much the entire purpose of a wedding is to just be worn by a bride for her wedding (like, it's not supposed to worn by anyone else for anything other than wedding). If Wera wanted her designs to be worn more than once that badly, she could've just designed stuff other than wedding dresses (for stuff that's meant to be worn regularly and not just for certain occassions).

     Dr. Inga Bittersweet 
A Swiss cookie maker who was part of the Happy Girls (a Girl Scout-style scouting organization) as a kid, but was kicked out for eating the cookies that she was supposed to be selling. To get revenge, she created "Passion Patties," mint-flavored chocolate cookies that are extremely addictive and make people go crazy for them (as well as making them extremely overweight).
  • Evil Is Petty: Combined with Never My Fault and Villainous Glutton—since she ate the cookies instead of selling them, it's basically Inga's own fault that she got kicked out of the Happy Girls as a kid, but she wants to get revenge anyway.
  • Mad Scientist: To some extent—she created the Passion Patties-cookies to be addictive to the point that anyone who ate them was immediately hooked on them and would become extremely overweight in a very short amount of time.
  • Meaningful Name: She Used to Be a Sweet Kid (and also has a really bad Sweet Tooth) but is very bitter about getting kicked out of her scouting troop when she was a kid.
  • A Taste of Their Own Medicine: Literally—the spies are ultimately able to defeat her by forcing her to drink a vial of the main ingredient of the cookies that she invented (the main ingredient in Passion Patties was a highly-concentrated sugar extract which made anyone who ate the cookies hooked on them right away).

     Shirley 
A furious yoga teacher who tries to get revenge for being driven bankrupt by a rival studio.
  • Evil Is Petty: She went bad just because she lost her business.
  • Fiery Redhead: She has orange-red hair and has major anger issues.
  • Mind Control: She uses mind control to get people to join her side.

     Simon Tucker 
An Australian/Irish man who hates shopping and malls, as he considers it "commercialist".
  • Evil Is Petty: He is evil because his business was shut down by a rival, and is now out for revenge.
  • Mind Control: He uses mind control by putting hypnotic radios on people's ears. He then makes them wear green hats, matching pants, white tank tops and blue war paint when they join his army to vandalize stores.
  • Never My Fault: He thinks the rival business is to blame for his face-heel turn.

     Nadia

An interior designer with very strange and tacky taste who was (not surprisingly) rejected from the world of interior design.
  • Evil Brit: Despite being American, she speaks with an accent quite similar to Rarity.
  • Evil Is Petty: Pretty much the whole reason Maggie turned evil was because he designs kept being rejected and now wants to make people notice her (and her designs) by kidnapping other interior designers.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: She wants to become famous and well-known, but her awful taste in interior design keeps getting rejected.
  • Meaningful Name: She wants to be famous interior designer, but it's more of an Ironic Name because nobody saw her as a trendsetter.
