Victor "Vic" Calavera

Voiced by: Diego Molano

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 skatepark.
  • 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.
  • 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".
  • 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.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: From what we've seen so far, jawbreakers.
  • Vocal Dissonance: He looks like a preadolescent, but his voice sounds more like someone in their early twenties.


Valentino "Val"

Voiced by: Rico Rodriguez (pilot), Sean-Ryan Petersen (series)

  • Acrofatic: He's overweight but pretty nimble and quick when the situation calls for it.
  • Big Eater: In "Chata's Quinta Quinceañera", he agrees to Vic's plan to try to attend two separate parties only when the latter tells him that he'll get to eat twice.
  • The Collector: It also gets him in trouble in at least two seperate 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 think the chupacabra in this setting a vegetarian).
  • Eating Lunch Alone: Mentions this is how his meals in second grade were like.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Responsible Sibling to Victor's Foolish Sibling.
    • Notso Above It All: Can get swept into using the magic surrounding the town to his advantage (Sometimes, without prompting from Vic).
  • 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.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Victor's Red despite being the one wearing reddish-orange clothing.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Sensitive Guy to Vic's Manly Man.

Citizens of Monte Macabre

    Grandma 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.
  • 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.
  • 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)
    (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

  • Perky Goth: Usually cheerful despite her interest in the macabre.
  • Speech Impediment: She has a distinct lisp.
  • The Rival: Zigzagged; the brothers see her as such, but she seems to have a crush on Victor and only uses the rivalry to get close to him.



Voiced by: Diego Molano

  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Responsible Sibling to Charlene's Foolish Sibling, as he tends to drag her away from dangerous situations that she'd rather stay for.

  • The Rival: Unlike her grandchildren, she and Chata have a bitter rivalry.

    Don Jalapeño 

Don Julio Jalapeño

Voiced by: Jason Hightower

The owner of a store with vast knowledge of Mexican folklore and ancient mythology.

  • Fat Idiot: Seems to be one with all his superstition.
  • Ignored Expert: He may seem out of touch, but he turns out to be right about the superstition and myths that happen around Monte Macabre.
  • Ironic Name: Don mainly sells jalapeños, but it turns out he can't handle spicy foods, having a Potty Emergency just from eating one.
  • Likes Older Women: He seems to be attracted to Chata, who is an old lady. Either that or he's afraid of her (or both).
  • Overly Nervous Flop Sweat: Whenever he's around Chata, like in "The Babysitter".

Huēhuecoyōtl "HueHue"

Voiced by: Christian Lanz

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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    El Colorado 

A character from the game "Suerte." Like the other characters, he comes to life in order to find someone to take his place in the game.


Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

  • Friend to All Living Things: Vic and Val are surprised to learn that Chupacabra would never harm or eat an animal, considering them his friends. He makes sculptures resembling animals, and even cuddles a rabbit, because he believes that animals have natural beauty.
  • Vegetarian Vampire: He doesn't like to eat animals, because he's a vegetarian.

    The Lechuza 

Voiced by: Vanessa Marshall

A legendary owl monster who preys on crying children.

  • Affably Evil: Befitting her motherly nature, she's very kind and caring even if she insists on letting her "children" stay with her.
  • 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.

    Los Cadejos 

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