The Brothers

    Victor 

Victor "Vic" Calavera

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/victor_1_1.png

Voiced by: Diego Molano

Valentino's half brother and Chata's grandson.


  • Annoying Younger Sibling: He goes on Valentino's nerves all the time.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: He has some pretty thick eyebrows.
  • Book Dumb: He doesn't know how to spell well and is rather impulsive, but Valentino does credit him on being smarter than his appearance and behaviors would suggest when the situation demands it.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: He's a jerk and wants to do whatever he wants without people telling him what to do, and like a little kid, he'll cry and moan if pushed too far.
  • Cheek Copy: He does this in "In Your Own Skin" using a photo-copying machine at a clothing store. Though unlike most examples, he still had his underwear on.
  • Childish Tooth Gap: Is missing his center front tooth.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Victor is not above ribbing on Valentino or joining in on supernatural mischief. But as soon as someone or something threatens to legitimately hurt Val, expect Victor to back out.
  • Foil: The mischievous, rambunctious boy compared to the more cautious, responsible Valentino.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Foolish Sibling to Val's Responsible Sibling.
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: Roughhousing and generally ribbing Valentino like most brothers? Victor has no problem with that. Anyone else threatens to hurt Val? That's crossing a line.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his mischievous nature and spats with Valentino, he is a good person who truly cares for him.
  • I Call It "Vera": He has a special jawbreaker named Selena.
  • Implausible Boarding Skills: Subverted; he's a formidable skateboarder but nowhere near the level of the kids at the hidden skate park.
  • Meaningful Name: "Calavera" means "skull" in Spanish, and a calaca is a skeleton figure used for the Day of the Dead. Both are very appropriate names for a character in a Mexico-based supernatural series.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: The resulting moment whenever a supernatural event he caused reaches its most dangerous situation.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The mischievous and rambunctious mean to Valentino's nice and Chata's in-between.
  • Noodle People: Disregarding the obvious weight gap between him and Valentino, Victor is generally a very skinny person.
  • Not So Above It All: He frequently bursts into tears and cries aloud like a small child whenever things seem to have ended badly (usually due to his doing in the first place), like when he thought Val drowned or when Val was nearly killed by the Suerte characters.
  • Overly Long Name: Victor Guadalupe Marine Laguna Calaca Calavera, as stated by Valentino in "Legend of the Hidden Skate Park".
  • Platonic Life-Partners: He is Cristina's best friend. He has no romantic feelings for her (mainly because he's living and she's dead) and sees her as a troll friend to help him pull pranks on other people for fun.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Valentino's Blue even though between the two of them he wears the blue clothing.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Man to Val's Sensitive Guy.
  • Skewed Priorities: More often than not, he decides to risk whatever may prolong his fun time, putting himself and everyone else at risk.
    • "Through the Nine Realms of Mictlan" put a serious case when he purposefully has their undead friend Cristina miss the train to go back home by prolonging their last troll of the day so that she'd be forced to stay with him and Valentino in exchange of never seeing her family again.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: From what we've seen so far, jawbreakers.
  • Vague Age: He's somewhere between the ages of 9 and 12, according to his official bio.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Victor looks like a preadolescent or early adolescent, but his voice sounds pretty adult-like. Especially when you compare his voice to Val's, who sounds comparatively more age-appropriate.
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice was pretty deep in both the pilot and early episodes of the series. As the show went on, his voice became more whiny and nasally.
  • Weirdness Magnet: If something supernatural occurs, it's usually because he started it.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Seems to have a distaste for serpents going by the aftermath of "Love At First Bite".

Victor's half brother and Chata's grandson.


  • Acrofatic: He's overweight but pretty nimble and quick when the situation calls for it.

  • The Collector: It also gets him in trouble in at least two separate occasions.
  • Didn't Think This Through: While he is generally more on the ball than his brother, he also isn't afraid to use the town weirdness to his advantage (Case in point dressing his brother up as a goat to lure the chupacabra and takes picture as said creatures takes his brother away, good thing the chupacabra in this setting is a vegetarian).
  • Eating Lunch Alone: Mentions this is how his meals in second grade were like.
  • Foil: The cautious, responsible boy compared to the more mischievous, rambunctious Victor.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Responsible Sibling to Victor's Foolish Sibling.

  • Laughing Mad: In "My Thirsty Little Monster", Valentino breaks into hysterical laughter after his mint coin collection gets ruined by Victor's pet Camazotz and his brother has no idea Camie was responsible for it.
  • Morality Pet: To Victor. Being a Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Victor is not above going along with any troublemaking or mischief the boys find. However, the second someone or something threatens Val, Vic drops everything to help his brother.

  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The kindhearted and cautious nice to Victor's mean and Chata's in-between.

  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Sensitive Guy to Vic's Manly Man.
  • Terrified of Germs: He goes through ridiculous lengths to avoid the spreading of germs.
  • Vague Age: According to the show's wikia, Val is somewhere between 10 to 14-years-old.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Val started off sounding relatively age-appropriate, but as his voice actor continued to hit puberty, later episodes have Val sounding more adult-like.
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice was more childish in the pilot. For the series proper, he starts off sounding more like a teenager but his voice deepened considerably as the show went on.

Citizens of Monte Macabre

    Grandma Chata 

Chata

Voiced by: Carla Tassara (pilot), Laura Patalano (series)

Victor and Valentino's paternal grandmother.


  • Ambiguously Human:
    • Let's see, her emotions control the water during the summer solstice, her house seems to be alive, and oh yes, the pilot shows she might be a magical deity.
    • Her favorite flower is the marigold, a symbol of the dead and the afterlife in Mexican culture.
  • Ambiguous Situation: She's perhaps the only resident who doesn't ever seem to notice any of the supernatural events happening around her (more so because her grandsons are always the ones triggering said events and try to keep her from knowing). However, it's hard to tell if she's genuinely oblivious to it or if she knows but is just desensitized to it.
  • Animal Motifs: Often seen with a hummingbird.
  • Berserk Button: Anything to do with her rival, Maria Teresa.
  • Eyes Always Shut: 95 percent of the time; she can't see very well and uses a cane. As for the other 5 percent, see Nightmare Face.
  • Mood-Swinger: Her mood can change from calm to angry and then back to calm again if Victor and Valentino are acting mischievous or fighting.
  • Never Mess with Granny: Her angry Jump Scare outbursts make it sound like she's possessed.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The in-between to Victor's mean and Valentino's nice; she's a sweet old lady but is not afraid to show her Nightmare Face.
  • Nightmare Face: You wouldn't expect a sweet old granny like her to have one, but she's not afraid to use it.
    Chata: Traviesos. I can't believe you didn't ask permission. Because if you did, I would have said... of course you can.
    (Vic and Val sigh in relief)
    Chata: WHEN YOU'RE OLD ENOUGH!!
    (Vic and Val scream)
  • Voice of the Legion: Whenever she wants to intimidate Victor and Valentino, she makes a scary face and yells, her screaming having a slight echo.
  • Weirdness Censor: If she's aware of any of the supernatural goings-on in Monte Macabre, she's never made that clear. Pretty impressive, considering that her house is apparently an Eldritch Location.

Voiced by: Cristina Milizia

    • She's a foil to Isabella as well. Both are the respective love interests for the titular main characters and share the same voice actress. But while both Isabella and Valentino like each other, only Charlene likes Victor.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Foolish Sibling to Pineapple's Responsible Sibling, as she enjoys the town's supernatural aspects so much that her brother has to drag her away from the more dangerous ones.

Maria Teresa

Voiced by: Frankie Quiñones

Charlene and Pineapple's grandmother.

  • Butter Face: Her Body is quite attractive, her face not so much.
  • Cursed Item: For whatever reason, she has a lot of these. From lotions that can de-age and rapidly age people to items that can trap people in a "Groundhog Day" Loop, Vic and Val eventually realize to steer clear of her stuff by the end of Season 1. She's well aware of this and mentions in "Forever Ever" that the stuff in her attic is Tez's equipment for his magic acts, so take that as you will.

  • Gonk: She's based on the stereotype of old women who try to look young by wearing obviously fake wigs and overdone makeup.

  • Glowing Eyelights of Undeath: They (and their skeletal subjects) all have these.
  • Graceful Loser: In "Through the Realms of Mictlan"; they not only reward Christina along with her fellow deceased denizens back home in Mictlan to get what they wanted thanks to Victor choosing to go to Mictlan over the living world, but they found Victor and Valentino so entertaining that they let the boys visit the Underworld whenever they like thus allowing Victor and Cristina to hang each other again instead of being away forever.

    Huēhuecoyōtl 

Huēhuecoyōtl "HueHue"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/victorandvalentino_still_001.jpg

Voiced by: Christian Lanz

The Aztec god of mischief, sealed away in a magical alebrije until it was accidentally broken by Valentino.


  • Agent Peacock: He acts a bit sensual, which is likely a nod to him being the patron of uninhibited sexuality and male sexuality. He could also be gender changing in the various mythical stories. Even kissing Valentino goodbye in the 59th episode!
  • Berserk Button: Do not attempt to reimprison him again.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: HueHue has a complete lack of self control. What starts off as frivolous playful antics gradually develop into mean-spirited dangerous pranks.
  • Call-Back: After escaping at the end of his return episode, he calls the boys to say it was fun helping them recapture the escaped spirits, calling them his minions. In his debut, he was stopped from awakening every captured spirit, after referring to them as "my mischief makers."
  • Do Wrong, Right: The trickster coyote spirit has to school and tutor the boys often on how to be a proper mischief maker, sometimes to his annoyance.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Amateurish pranks and poorly executed jokes irritate him, and he's a Grammar Nazi to boot.
  • Faux Affably Evil: His initial friendliness with Victor and Valentino shows his true colors when he resorts to malicious pranks (even beyond Victor's standards) that could have hurt Valentino, and his attitude towards Victor is apathetic.
  • Friendly Enemy: He's on good terms (or at least he thinks he's on good terms) with the boys, getting intimate, giving them Friendly Address Privileges and having No Sense of Personal Space.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: HueHue's eyes become hypnotic rainbows when he's really mad with someone.
  • Grammar Nazi: He corrects Victor's bad spelling and treats it as Serious Business, which turns out to be his downfall when he re-spells "Esdas etripado" to "¡estás atrapado!" and says it a third time, sending him back to his alebrije.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: After helping Victor and Valentino round up three escaped malicious spirits (and escaping himself to avoid recapture), he's sure to give the boys a call and let them know all those spirits work for him, which is why he knew how to catch them all.
    • However, it's only a twist if you did not pay close attention to a few words in his debut episode.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He gets very irritated with Victor's bad spelling, and Victor exploits this to make him say "¡estás atrapado!" for the third time.
  • Jerkass: All he wants to do is prank people, no matter how much it may hurt them.
  • Rewatch Bonus: His debut episode discreetly implies that many of the captured spirits are actually his underlings, which he confirms at the end of his return episode.
  • Rule of Three: HueHue and his minions are unstoppable and can only be sealed again into a alebrije by saying "¡estás atrapado" three times.
  • Sizeshifter: Comes with the territory of being a Reality Warper, the god can appear tiny or giant-sized at will.
  • Starter Villain: He's the first antagonist that the brothers face off against in the TV series, and gives them a taste of the strangeness of Monte Macabre.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: When the boys idiotically release some of HueHue's mischievous alebrije spirits, they have no choice but to enlist the help of master mischief-maker to help catch them. The coyote spirit eventually decides to cooperate with the boys
  • The Bus Came Back: Returns in episode Folk Art Friends to assist the boys in recapturing his escaped minions, but the crafty Aztec god himself absconds in the ending.
  • Those Wily Coyotes: He's a coyote and a god of mischief.
  • The Punishment: His wanton mischief got so bad the other gods sealed him away in a alebrije. However, he's still a god, and can easily escape if the sculpture is damaged.
  • The Trickster: A mischievous coyote spirit that liked to play pranks on the ancient Aztec gods.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: For all his amazing reality-bending abilities, he can be sealed in an easily-made alebrije with a very short incantation.
    • On the other hand, the easily-made alebrije is also easily shattered, or he can find ways to keep you from saying the incantation. This is why the boys create so many of them he can't destroy them all, and even record themselves saying the incantation so he can't muffle their voices either.

    Camazotz 

Demon bats that drink the blood of others that were released by Victor and Valentino by accident. Victor grows an attachment to the littlest one, naming it Cammy.


    Juan 

The ghost of a football player trapped inside a mirror.

Chupacabra "Chupa"

Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

A legendary cryptid.

  • Vegetarian Vampire: He doesn't like to eat animals, because he's a vegetarian.

    La Lechuza 

Voiced by: Vanessa Marshall

A legendary owl monster who preys on crying children.


  • Affably Evil: "Evil" is a stretch. While she does kidnap crying children, it's out of protective instinct rather than malice. Befitting her motherly nature, she's very kind and caring even if she insists on letting her "children" stay with her. And she's even willing to let them go once they've matured.
  • Friend to All Children: Legend says she preys on crying children, when she actually adores children and is compelled to pamper and protect them by maternal instinct.
  • I'm Taking Him Home with Me!: When she snatches up crying children, she's actually taking them to her nest to take care of them.
  • My Beloved Smother: Downplayed. She's actually perfectly willing to let her "children" leave the nest if they "matured," but still expects them to constantly keep in touch. Mostly, it's the "children" taking advantage of her kindness.
  • Taking Advantage of Generosity: She's willing to let her "children" leave the nest once they "mature", but the problem is her "children" are so spoiled and pampered, they would rather stay. One man was clearly kidnapped when he was a baby and he never outgrew it.

    Los Cadejos 

Two mountain spirits that take the form of large dogs and appear to lost travelers.


Tropes that apply to both

Stinky

An evil Black Cadejo that leads lost travelers to their doom.
  • Body Horror: Once its true identity is found out by Valentino, and Mr. Snuggles foils its attempts to kill Victor, he suddenly sheds most of his body's flesh and fur to reveal Dem Bones - while insects and an excess amount of maggots visibly fall from its body all over the place.
  • Dark Is Evil: Has black fur and tries to kill lost travelers.
  • Dem Bones: The lower half part of his body in his true form is just a skeleton.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes turn red when he hypnotizes people.

Mr.Snuggles

A good White Cadejo that protects lost travelers from harm

    Cipactli 

A spawn of the Aztec Eldritch Abomination that the gods slew to make the world that Victor and Valentino kept as a pet.


    Tez 
Voiced by: Christian Lanz

Maria Theresa's magician husband, who has finally returned to Monte Macabre after traveling the world. In truth, he is the Aztec god Tezcatlipoca.


  • Ambiguously Human: He has magic powers and his face turns catlike during his Villain Song. He turns out to be an Aztec god.
  • An Arm and a Leg: He claims to have lost his leg to one of his crocodiles, Guapo. Then he says that he lost it to a giant winged serpent... and neither of these explanations are exactly wrong (as far as we know, anyways).
  • Animal Motifs: He is associated with cats, most notably his eyes getting cat-like when he's excited. Tezcatlipoca was associated with jaguars and even ended the first world by making jaguars rain on people.
  • Big Bad: He has plans for Montemacabre...
  • Collector of the Strange: He has a collection of mystical artifacts in Maria Teresa's attic, which she says he uses for his magic shows.
  • Doting Grandparent: Averted. In his debut appearance, when he asks for two volunteers, he ignores Charlene and Pineapple asking to be chosen in favor of Victor and Valentino, much to the former two's envy. However, this was just so that he could get close enough to the brothers so that he could imprison them, so this may not have been a personal attack on his grandchildren.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: A glyph of Tezcatlipoca is seen in the first episode's flashback, where he is Huehuecoyotl's prank victim and the one who imprisoned him in an alebrije.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He's evil, but from what little we've seen so far though, he seems to love his wife. How much of it is an act is currently unknown. For the record, Tezcatlipoca really got around with noblewomen according to myth...
  • Faux Affably Evil: He acts like a Cool Old Guy, but he wants to trap Victor and Valentino away in his mirrors for all eternity so that he can carry out his evil plans for Monte Macabre undeterred, all while keeping up an amicable facade.
  • Foreshadowing: Tez's identity is easily given away if you know anything about Mesoamerican mythology.
    • As other mythological characters in the show have had nicknames that shorten their name, Tez's name is a dead giveaway if you know who Tezcatlipoca is.
    • "The Smoking Mirror" is also the nickname of Tezcatlipoca.
    • Tezcatlipoca is associated with obsidian (which was what Mayan mirrors were made of), the night, and sorcery. Sound familiar?
    • He lost his foot to a crocodile or a winged feathered serpent... Tezcatlipoca lost his foot to his brother, Quetzalcoatl, who is a winged feathered serpent. On the other hand (pun unintended), alternative interpretations state that Cipactli ate his foot.
    • His Animal Motif is cats and his face turns catlike when he has Vic and Val trapped in his temple. Tezcatlipoca can transform into a jaguar.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When his eyes turn into cat eyes.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: It isn't clear what his end goal is, but it requires getting Victor and Valentino out of his way and seems to involve setting a monster free.
  • Jerkass God: He's Tezcatlipoca, who is considered by the Spanish to be evil. And so far, he's been Faux Affably Evil towards Vic and Val, ignored his grandchildren (although possibly unintentionally), and intends to set some sort of evil upon Monte Macabre.
  • Magic Mirror: Charlene says she got the obsidian mirror she uses to contact the Underworld from him. He can also cast a spell to enchant someone's reflection to come alive and pull them into a mirror, trapping them.
  • Meaningful Name: "Smoking mirror" is an appropriate name for a stage magician. It's also the nickname for Tezcatlipoca.
  • Metaphorically True: He claims to Vic and Val that he lost his leg to a crocodile named Guapo, but then later states that he lost it to a giant winged feathered serpent. Val notices the inconsistency and takes it as evidence that Tez is lying about his magic. Tez is technically not lying, since it depends on which interpretation of his myth you're looking at; he either lost his leg to Cipactli or Quetzalcoatl, so either Tez forgot, is lying about which version is true, or is being coy about what really happened.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: He claims that he lost his leg to a crocodile named Guapo during one of his acts, but then he later says that he lost it to a giant winged feathered serpent. He's technically not lying since it varies between interpretations, but only he knows what really happened.
  • Riddle for the Ages: Implied. He's not consistent on whether or not he lost his leg to Guapo or a winged serpent, to line up with how these are different versions of the myth and he acts rather sly about which one is the truth, preventing us from ever learning what really happened.
  • Tyrant Takes the Helm: As of "Sal's Our Pal, he is now elected to be in charge of Monte Macabre and isn't above enforcing his rule to stick it to Victor and Valentino.
  • Villain Song: "Tez Sez".
  • Walking Spoiler: It's hard to talk about him without bringing up that he's supernatural, much less that he's an ancient Mesoamerican god.

  • Eldritch Abomination: They are cosmic beings who seem to actually be the stars in the night sky appearing as living masses of darkness with numerous faces and toothy mouths.
  • Light Is Not Good: Looking up at any bright stars in the night sky might get you possessed.

  • A Day in the Limelight: She becomes the Deuteragonist in "Through the Realms of Mictlan" one-hour Season 2 finale involving her role to reunite with her fellow deceased family in Mictlan due to missing the train going into the after life thanks to Victor as he and Valentino tries to pass the realms as trials to get there.
