The Feline Follies of Felix the Cat is a speculative surreal Slice of Life comedy-fantasy adventure series with a dash of Black Comedy. The series would aim to reboot the Felix the Cat character along with being a streamlined version of previous incarnations' universes into one.
Being a former child actor, teenaged Felix the Cat would like nothing more than to enjoy having the easy life and being a master playful trickster. Although, such an idea can easily be muddled with when you have to deal with the daily bizarre hi-jinks of life with your local "roommate" Levi' Athan, your scientist pal Poindexter, and your "not" girlfriend Kitten "Kitty" Kat. Oh, and something about a rarely noticeable nemesis trying to get his Magic Bag of Tricks, and his killer robot that turned against him.
Episodes of this series provide examples of:
- Animated Series: The intended medium for the series.
- Adaptational Alternate Ending:
- One of the standalone stories is a loose retelling of the ending of the first film in the Felix series, Feline Follies, which takes place in a flashback. Felix, who has hit one of the lowest points in his life, seriously contemplates taking his own life by sucking on a gas pipe—but what little hope he has left in life allows him to pull through and not go through with it.
- Another flashback story that explains how he got his magic carpet is loosely based on Felix Lends a Hand. The original cartoon had a Downer Ending that was Played for Laughs. In this timeline, Felix, despite some difficulty, succeeds in rescuing the shopkeeper's girlfriend, and he allows Felix to keep the magic carpet as a gift.
- Adjective Noun Fred: Adjective: Feline; Noun: Follies; Fred: Felix The Cat.
- Adults Are More Anthropomorphic
- Affirmative Action Girls: The first season gives slowly grows a (mostly) female group of recurring characters for Kitty.
- Amusing Injuries
- Anachronism Stew
- Apathetic Citizens:
- Felix is recognized as a hero throughout Inkwell, but a lot of city folk don't give Felix much respect and treat him like any other guy.
- But even their treatment is downright nice compared to the frigid reception Felix gets from the residents of Fillydelphia. Even though their (benevolent) queen personally permitted Felix to enter their country, he's greeted with either fear or borderline hostility by most of the Fillies, who make it clear that they want nothing to do with outsiders, including him, and want him to just get his job over with asap and hightail it out of there. After Felix helps save their country from Master and is knighted by Moonbeam, they at least learn to respect him.
- Breather Episode: There are a lot of comedic episodes to balance out the darker ones.
- Broad Strokes: Events that happened in other parts of the series are sometimes indirectly referenced, such as Felix joking about Professor once attempting to ruin Christmas. The story where Felix finds Oscar on an isolated island has him vaguely remember meeting him in the past (i.e. the events of the Twisted Tales of Felix episode Phoney Phelix), but the circumstances aren't elaborated on.
- The Cameo: The Duke of Zill makes a cameo appearance early in "The Odd Couple", having fallen on hard times after Felix overthrew his previous efforts to conquer the kingdom of Oriana. Despite being in no shape to fight and being flanked by two barely functional robots, he tries to pick a fight with Felix anyway. Felix, who is very annoyed that this tyrant turned pathetic creep is interrupting the start of his vacation, KOs him with a single punch and walks off unfettered.
- Cartoon Physics
- Cast of Snowflakes
- Closed Circle: Fillydelphia is a large landmass cut off from the rest of Inkwell, and due to tensions and a sour history between its residents and the rest of the world, Fillys and outsiders alike need special permission from Queen Moonbeam to even leave or enter the country. Felix is only granted entry partly because of his reputation and because he's on a special job to find a rare breed of mushroom for a friend and didn't plan on staying long.
- Continuity Creep: While mostly consisting of standalone episodes (especially in Season One), character developments and certain events tend to carry over to newer episodes after they appear. This is greatly enforced around the second half of Season Two.
- Cringe Comedy
- Darker and Edgier: The series' tone can be much more cynical than most of the Felix cartoons, especially in contrast to the Joe Oriolo incarnation of the series.
- A Day in the Limelight: Feline Follies has a growing, consistent cast compared to previous "Felix" shows. As a result, some of the other main or recurring characters get a chance to dedicate an episode(s) focused on their exploits. Some take a step further into a Girls' Night Out, a Villain Episode, and actual Day in the Life(in the case of Terry) episode. Even their Subtropes come into play for the occasional subversion.(beat)
- Daylight Horror
- Deconstructive Parody: "The Professor and Rock Bottom Show" is both a satire and love letter to the Joe Oriolo Felix the Cat cartoons. Professor and Rock start the episode by watching their old cartoons and realize that they arguably qualify as the real protagonists of the show, and fight the showrunners to get it changed to reflect that. Surprisingly, they succeed in getting top billing and discover they have their own fanbase. Professor sets his next plan into motion—clone the Magic Bag of Tricks and defeat Felix just for once in his life. He comes to a hairbreadth away from succeeding, but he has a realization; if he does succeed in beating Felix, he would stop being the villainous underdog his fans root for, it would destroy the comedic tension of the show, and it wouldn't leave him anything more ambitious to do after that. He willingly lets Felix win and hands his show billing back to him—but then concocts a passive-aggressive plan to get even with him by hiring Felix to babysit his bratty nephew...
- Demoted to Extra: Played for Laughs in "The Bachelor", where all the girl characters have a night out together without Felix. Unfortunately, Felix, who is already very annoyed that he gets supplanted by so many side characters competing for screen time with him, takes umbrage at the idea of a Lower-Deck Episode without him, so he actively tries to shoehorn himself into the episode's plot, much to the girls' chagrin.
- Denser and Wackier: The show's overall surreal nature and characters allows itself to fall into this territory while balancing its Darker and Edgier tone, making for quite the viewing experience.
- Deranged Animation: A staple of most Felix cartoons when dealing with surreal imagery, and this series is no exception.
- The Determinator: In "Felix in a Fix", Master decides to throw the Magic Bag of Tricks into one of his wormholes to guarantee that Felix can never use it again. Felix is devastated at losing it, and since it's impossible to recreate the bag, he's forced to go to Professor for help, to use the dimension device from "Felix In-Sanityland" to go on a multiverse-wide search to retrieve it, with no guarantee of success. Unfortunately, Master is well aware of what Felix plans on doing, and it becomes a game of cat and mouse as Felix tries his best to not only find the bag, but avoid Master, who is constantly on his trail thanks to the wormhole device. Felix is well aware that he's powerless to fight him, so all he can do is run for his life and hope for the best, determined to save his bag at the risk of his own life.
- Eldritch Location: Inkwell is this, due to being a suburban-like melting pot of various animation cultures, genres, and mediums.
- Enemy Mine: In "Professor's Peril", Felix is forced to serve as Professor's bodyguard when he unwittingly becomes the target of the infamous assassin and previous foe Jinx Lynx, who wants to capture him and exploit his knowledge.
- Everything Talks
- Evolving Credits
- Family-Unfriendly Violence
- Fantastic Racism: The residents of Fillydelphia, while usually benevolent when kept to themselves, are openly hostile towards outsiders, and not without reason either, since their initial attempts to integrate with Inkwell society ended in disaster when almost all the unicorns were hunted to near extinction for their valuable magic horns and the regular fillies were often enslaved as workhorses, prompting them to isolate themselves in a far off corner of Inkwell. Even Felix, who is a world-renowned hero, is met with a grudging and icy welcome from the residents when he arrives. Queen Moonbeam herself and her foster daughter are an exception to this, and Moonbeam admits to Felix that it's a problem, but she isn't sure how to fix it, or if it even can be resolved. After he helps Moonbeam defeat Master, he at least earns their respect and they let up on him.
- Fantasy Kitchen Sink
- Four Legs Good, Two Legs Better
- Godzilla Threshold: According to a bar story, the Inkwell residents got so desperate to get rid of Master, that they tried luring the Bermuda Triangle back to the mainland, fulling aware the chaos it would wreak in the process, in the hope that its Reality Warper effects it would end up sabotaging or destroying Master. It almost works, but Master ultimately defeats it by sending him into another dimension (and no, that's not a euphemism, he literally sends him into another realm via a giant wormhole).
- Go-Karting with Bowser:
- When he's not committing crimes, Professor is much more respectful towards Felix. Chalk it up to him being Hot-Blooded when it comes to achieving his goals.
- In "The Bachelor", Jinx Lynx impersonates one of the girls, but doesn't do anything evil or harmful—she's too gratified with the idea of pulling a fast one on Felix and co. without them realizing it.
- Grossout Show: Zig-Zagged in its usage. Normally, the show would stray from excrement and toilet jokes, but certain bodily horrors and absurd sights tend to be shown in conjunction with its Surreal Humor in certain episodes.
- Implacable Man: Master. Not that he's very resilient, but his Wormhole Device completely stacks the deck in his favor in just about any fight. Even Felix with his magic bag is hardly even a match for him, and whenever Felix is unlucky enough to be at the receiving end of his wrath without the Magic Bag on hand (such as in "Felix in a Fix") all he can do is run for his life.
- Lightmare Fuel
- Very Loosely Based on a True Story: Some plotlines have some vague influences from real-life events. Felix's origin, in this universe, contains hodgepodge elements of the real-life history of his real-life publication history.
- Magic Versus Science: The basic device of Felix's Magic Bag of Tricks versus Professor's inventions is taken much further in this series, where a major source of conflict is that Professor created Master, a robot who is capable of perfectly countering Felix's Magic Bag of Tricks with his built-in Wormhole Generator.
- Meaningful Names: Some characters (ex: Poindexter, Queen Abeerah, President Al Takka Nogiv) sport around status, personality, and/or species-related (nick)names.
- Medium Blending
- Mickey Mousing
- Mythology Gag: The title of "Felix in a Fix" is a play on one of the lyrics in his old theme song ("Whenever he gets in a fix, he reaches into his Bag of Tricks!") since the episode's conflict stems from the fact that Felix has lost his bag of tricks and is desperately searching for it while evading Master.
- No Fourth Wall: The residents of Inkwell are all well aware that they are cartoon characters.
- Officially Shortened Title: "Feline Follies [2XXX]" or "Felix's Feline Follies".
- Reference Overdosed: Feline Follies not only references mostly everything from Felix the Cat's history, but also various animation tropes, genres, and properties in homages, parodies and satires.
- Reality Ensues: This continuity provides a case of Happy Ending Override for the fate of the Kingdom of Oriana; even though The Duke of Zill was defeated by Felix, Princess Oriana still had no army to protect her kingdom and, learning nothing from the Duke of Zill's invasion, stubbornly refused to reinstate it. Cue Master arriving at the kingdom one week, complete blindsiding its inhabitants and razing it to the ground in a single rampage. What little was left of the now fallen kingdom had Oriana dethroned and imprisoned for endangering the kingdom twice over, and it left a nasty power vacuum that still lingers on to the present.
- Rubberhose Limbs: This trait depends on the character (usually the inkblot styled characters, such as Felix and his globulous counterpart).
- Slapstick Knows No Gender: No matter what gender (or lack thereof), any character is an equal opportunity for some very degree of slapstick.
- Sliding Scale of Continuity: Overall, the show would usually be a Level 4 (Arc-Based Episodic).
- Status Quo Is God: Zig Zagged Trope, as stated above.
- Surreal Horror
- Surreal Humor
- Take That!: ECHA from "To Be This Bad Takes Ages" is a big middle finger to Sega and their most famous series, and is a corporate satire in general.
- Teens Are Short: Generally applies to the main, animalistic younger cast compared to an average human's height note . Outside of them, it varies wildly with other younger characters.
- Ultimate Universe: Mashes up elements from the Otto Messmer Felix cartoons, the Joe Oriolo Felix cartoons and The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat and throws some new stuff in with them.
- White Void Room: In "Just Me, Myself, and I", Felix, tired of being sidelined by a huge supporting cast, wishes that just for once, he could have a whole episode all to himself. He gets just that—just himself and a blank white background to interact with. Felix has fun with it at first, but the isolation gradually takes its toll on his mind and drives him into an existential crisis, making him question his own worth in the grand scheme of things. All of this is Played for Laughs, of course.
- Widget Series: Naturally, this Felix series can be peculiar in its animation, plots, sounds, and characters.
- Worthy Opponent: There are exactly two people in Inkwell who can go toe to toe with Master and come out alive, if not on top. Felix isn't one of them, as every fight he has with Master is a struggle:
- Played for Laughs with Vavoom, whose voice is extremely powerful—as in level an entire city in one shout powerful—and is one of the few attacks that Master can't directly defend himself from by using his wormholes. Even he knows to give him a wide berth and head for the hills when he shows up. The only thing keeping him from being a Story-Breaker Power is his unwillingness to fight.
- Played for Drama with Queen Moonbeam. She doesn't have the deck stacked in her favor like Vavoom does due to Master's Anti-Magic armor making him immune to direct attacks, but she is more than capable of physically fighting him without magic, and she's able to creatively use her magic to work around that fact. She once fought him to a draw, but she technically only won because Master got bored fighting her and left in a huff.
- X Meets Y: Ideally, the show would be The Amazing World of Gumball meets Gravity Falls.
Felix The Cat
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Kyle Rideout note
- A Cat and His Bag: His relationship with his magical, sentient bag.
- A Lizard Named "Liz": As per usual, the name "Felix" sounds like the Latin word "felis" (meaning cat).
- Beware My Stinger Tail: Felix's natural tail is pretty multi-purposeful. Whether it detaches to become a club, or morphs into a makeshift hammer, Felix at least has another form of defense without the use of his bag. Did we mention it can grab stuff?
- Badass Adorable: For starters, he's a cat who has access to a pretty powerful, multi-functional Empathic Weapon. Even without his bag, Felix is quite a capable fighter.
- Catchphrase: "Righty-O[h]", from the Joe Oriolo version, makes a return, but downplayed to occasional utterances. Felix finds the phrase archaic and awkward to use regularly.
- He has no problem, ironically, using "Ratzenheimmer" in times of grievances.
- Cartoony Tail: Felix's tail length is normally a couple of inches longer than a real-life cat (long enough to droop and rest on the ground while standing). Yet, it can extend even longer to act as a rope or lasso, along with the aforementioned traits featured above.
- Cats Are Mean: Downplayed. He's kind of a sourpuss and isn't always optimistic, but he's still a good person at heart and, true to his previous iterations, he is an altruist who always helps out anyone in need without partiality.
- Charlie Chaplin Shout-Out
- Combat Pragmatist
- Confirmed Bachelor
- Cute Kitten
- Cute Little Fangs: Felix has a tendency to bare his cat canines with either an open or closed mouth, making for an adorable look.
- Deadpan Snarker: The Cat has a tendency to fall into this type of persona, but that's not who he truly is.
- Dark Is Not Evil: He's a fun-loving trickster of a black cat (known for their mythical bad luck), but Felix is morally good (depending on who you ask).
- Evil Me Scares Me: Felix is generally disgusted by Inkwell Felix's obliviously unhinged personality and appearance, especially as his mirror counterpart.
- Former Child Star: Young Felix, a few months after his creation, was considered one of the first breakout Animated Actors of the (formally known) Tinsel Town's booming filmmaking industry. However, a bunch of studio mandates, custody issues, and family losses (to name a few) had cause The Cat to contemplate his own personal identity and existence within his cherished job. As a result, he leaves his professional life behind and staying with The Oriolos. Afterward, his personal life has improved decently if we don't bring up the Master.
- Funny Animal
- Has Two Daddies: In-universe, Felix's parents/creators are Otto Messmer and Pat Sullivan (though like Pat's real life counterpart, things are messy with that statement). Despite the potential allegory bait, the situation is viewed as simply "an artist and a film producer awkwardly trying to raise the glue that keeps them relevant in the industry, with varying degrees of conflict and success."
- Felix himself usually leaves it as a "footnote" and never brings it up unless it's implied in a question about family.
- Felix would mention staying in a typical home at a young age with some human family called "The Oriolos" after both his creators passed. It was short-lived when the Master attacked their town—the Oriolos don't die, thankfully, but Felix is so upset at what happened that he abandons them out of guilt for being unable to save their home and the rest of the town.
- Good Is Not Soft
- He's All Grown Up: Felix gets the receiving end of this from Kitty upon their first meet, referring to his child acting days.
- Inkblot Cartoon Style: A modern cleaned up version of his 1930s design akin to his The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat version.
- I Didn't Mean to Turn You On: A statement that summarizes his thoughts towards Kitty's interest in him.
- In-Series Nickname: "[Cop a] Fel'", "Mr. Felix" (by Poindexter), "The Wonderful, Wonderful Cat"(by Kitty) or "The Cat" (or simply Cat).
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Karmic Trickster
- Kid Hero: This teenaged version is tied with being the second youngest iteration of the character besides Baby Felix.
- My Greatest Failure: He considers his first attempt as a child to stop Master (from destroying a town full of innocent people) to be this. The Kingdom of Oriana's destruction at the hands of Master also counts as this, although he wasn't present for it.
- Pie-Eyed: Naturally, though it's combined with a cat's slit-eyed look.
- Other Me Annoys Me: This is a part of a plot point (where it's parodied, then deconstruction into positive subversion) of Felix In-Sanityland, where Feline Follies!Felix is thrown around alternate universes and, originally, begrudges the notion of having to work with possible counterparts to fix a common issue. It didn't help that he arrogantly dismissed them for only having unrefined aspects of his current personality and skills (for better or worse) and had assumed he and his universe are the originals. note The tension eases up gradually, but he notably remarks about:
- Felix the Cat Live!Felix:
- Baby Felix!Felix:
- Master Tom! Felix:
- The Power of Acting: Felix takes his skills from his former acting days to the Logical Extreme whenever he's on an adventure. This is also how he ends up defeating Master—instead of trying to rely on his Bag of Tricks like he always fruitlessly had in the past, he feigns surrender to Master—the robot takes the bait and thinks Felix has thrown in the towel, which makes him monologue before trying to kill Felix then and there—Master lets his guard down just long enough for Felix to land a critical strike on him with his tail, slicing off the arm with the Wormhole Device, and thus defeating him.
- Raised by Humans: He was raised by the duo of Otto Messmer and Pat Sullivan and later The Oriolos.
- Sad Clown
- Signature Laugh: "Ha heh heh heh ha!" or "Daah ha ha ha!"
- Shapeshifter: He has this to a degree, but it's very limited compared to what the Magic Bag of Tricks can do. Ironically, creating the Bag with a drop of his own ink was what gave the Bag its hammerspace and shapeshifting abilities in the first place (it was already magical due to being partially built out of an old magic carpet Felix owned, but alchemy and Felix's ink just made it stronger).
- Shut Up, Hannibal!: In a later battle, Master has Felix on the ropes or so it seems—Felix is just putting on a show to get Master to drop his guard[[/spoiler, and is about to deal a finishing blow. He does take a moment to gloat, which Felix takes advantage of to catch him off guard and slice off the arm equipped with the wormhole device.
- Master: "Heh...heh...heh...so I've finally broken you, haven't I, Felix? Resilient and persistent you may be, but in the end your feeble skills are no match for the power of the future, which rests in the palm of my hand. I have broken you. You have lost. Since your fate begins and ends with me, I shall give you a final choice; I can make your death swift and painless, a humiliating failure for the best this mudball has to offer, or if not that, then slow and excruciating death as I bring this world crumbling down below your eyes, with you watching and being unable to lift a finger to even try to stop me. Either way, I shall enjoy watching you die..."
- Felix: "...I will...never...give up...never!"
- Smug Smiler
- Species Surname: Cat, of course. Though he originally had the last name Sullivan-Messmer.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He used to be more Adorkable and genial in his younger years, but his unfortunate first encounter with Master and his failure to stop him from destroying a town changed all that.
- The Voiceless: Originally, child actor Felix was this trope combined with Silent Snarker. If any dialogue was included in his films, the production crew would insert Thought Captions.
Thomas "Tom" Tom Cat
Proposed Voice Actor(s):
- Big Fun
- Canon Foreigner
- Cats Are Mean: Averted.
- Mix-and-Match Critter: He is a ti-liger after all.
- Panthera Awesome
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: From a first glance, his role seems similar to that of Roscoe from The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Eric Bauza
- Adaptational Attractiveness: This version takes some design cues from the defunct TeamTo CGI reboot, which gave him some dark brown hair and a slight height increase.
- Bookworm: He's a huge bibliophile and has an impressive personal library that takes up a big chunk of the Professor's lab. He's such a literary nut that he owns a "first edition" of The Epic of Gilgameshnote .
- Catchphrase: "Actually..."
- Celibate Hero:
- Child Prodigy: Like his main universe counterpart, he's very intelligent for his age.
- Nice Hat: His nifty academic cap is pretty stylish and converts into a "working" helicopter and parachute hat.
- Evil Nephew: Poindexter is the inversion when you relate him to his evil uncle, The Professor (who ends up in Butt-Monkey situations on his own accord).
- Eye Glasses: Of course he wears glasses. They're pretty flexible enough to display a decent range of emotion too.
- Pastiche: His art design is drawn very similar to the likes of artists Chris Mitchell or Keiko Murayama's work on The New Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show.
- Race Lift: The teen genius would be bi-racial Hispanic-Caucasian compared to his previous Caucasian interpretations.
- Reluctant Mad Scientist: During his tenure with his uncle.
Kitten "Kitty" White Kat
Proposed Voice Actress(es): Alison Brie or Rachel Bloom
- Adaptation Species Change: Previous depictions of Kitty's breed were vaguely modeled after any generic white cat. Her breed in this series would resemble closer to a Siamese cat.
- Ascended Fangirl
- A Dog Named "Dog": Her nickname not only works as shorthand for her species but also doubles as a Stock Animal Name.
- Badass Pacifist: Despite being willing to write and direct action scenes involving characters performing acts of violence, Kitty would restrain herself from doing the same (sometimes even out of self-defense). She would note that this trait was a part of her childhood upbringing, as her parents (while not powerful through wealth) were able to stand their ground to confidence, persuasive speaking with a stern touch.
- Cats Are Mean: Another aversion.
- Cartoony Eyes: A more straightforward example compared to Felix's. However, her pupils are pie shaped wrapped around blue irides. She also lacks the slitted cat eyes.
- Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: Ideally, Kitty is into fashion (which includes designing), loves the color pink, and hanging out with toddlers. She also happens to love partaking in any filmmaking position she can get her hands on (preferably the directing, editing, and recording chairs) and create thrillers, comedies, dramedies and other films any way possible. She would tag along with some of the male characters long enough to be considered One of the Boys.
- Humanoid Female Animal: Averted.
- Intergenerational Friendship: She shares this with Abeerah.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: In terms of filmmaking, music, and theater arts, Kitty has a competently intermediate understanding and application of various subjects.
- Light Is Good: A straight example.
- Most Writers Are Writers: Kitty writes as a freelance filmmaker.
- The One Who Wears Shoes: Zig-Zagged with her tendency to change into different outfits every other episode. She's also not the only non-human being to adopt shoes either.
- Pastiche: Her art design is drawn to resemble Jessica Borutski's art style.
- Plucky Girl
- Species Surname: Same as Felix's, but with a "K". No relations.
- Satellite Love Interest: Surprisingly not the case in this version.
M.B. (The Magic Bag of Tricks)
- Adaptation Origin Connection: The Bag was partially made by Felix himself out of the cloth of his old magic carpet, which in this time was torn apart by Master purely to spite Felix. This is a reference to the fact that the Magic Bag was introduced in the Joe Oriolo cartoons as a substitute for Felix's frequently used flying carpet in the comic books. It got its enhanced magical abilities by Felix using alchemy and a drop of his own ink-blood to merge it into the bag, giving it shapeshifter and hammerspace abilities. The carpet itself is also stated to be the same carpet Felix got in the silent era short Felix Lends A Hand.
- Adaptational Wimp: For the sake of a stable story, the Magic Bag of Tricks is given more clearly defined traits and restrictions compared to previous iterations. That doesn't mean it isn't a powerful asset.
- Animate Inanimate Object
- Awesome Backpack: While its default form retains the classic handbag look, it transforms into a traditionally strapped backpack whenever it travels around with Felix.
- Bag of Holding
- Bigger on the Inside: A ridiculous element of the Magic Bag is it's (almost) unlimited spacious interior wrapped around a normal-sized backpack look.
- Companion Cube: M.B is this to Felix. Justified in that the bag is sentient and cares for Felix's life, and visa versa. No, not that way...
- Empathic Weapon
- In-Series Nickname: "M.B." being a catchier, shorthand name for "The Magic Bag of Tricks".
- Loyal Phlebotinum: While Master can easily steal it by using his wormhole device, it will by no means obey him and will relentlessly fight back to escape.
- Memento MacGuffin
- Morph Weapon
- The Speechless: As always, the Bag is incapable of speaking.
- Story-Breaker Power: Averted. The Magic Bag cannot be used by Felix to bull-rush his way to victory in a fight with Master—he's immune to direct attacks from it because of his Anti-Magic armor (which instantly negate its transformations on contact with him), and he's just as creative with his wormhole device as Felix is with his bag. The bags purpose is to ensure Felix even has a chance of survival in an encounter with Master.
- The Worf Effect: It's not as powerful as its Oriolo incarnation, and the Master's wormhole device completely outclasses it in a fight, and he even manages to steal the bag from Felix by simply summoning it with his device, meaning it's no longer a Story-Breaker Power like it was in the Joe Oriolo cartoons.
Proposed Voice Actor(s):
- Absent-Minded Professor
- Adaptational Badass: Downplayed. Unlike the main universe Professor, who is by and large harmless, Professor is much more of a threat in this universe, at least in the sense that he can put up a fight. His schemes are still pretty small time, though.
- Adaptational Origin Connection: In this continuity, Professor got the idea to build his experimental cylindroids after hearing stories of Felix's encounters with the Duke of Zill's Cylinder robots.
- Ditzy Genius: One trait that is retained from the main universe Professor is that he's still prone to lapses in judgment in spite of his superb intellect.
- Evil Is Not a Toy: His work in creating Master as the perfect counterpart to fight Felix and his Magic Bag technically succeeded, but the fact that he ended up losing any control he had over him comes to bite him and the rest of Inkwell in the ass hard.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Master is a living embodiment of a Moral Event Horizon that even the Professor wouldn't dare cross, and he deeply regrets creating him.
- Evil Uncle: The Professor is the uncle of Poindexter, his good-willed nephew. However, he doesn't despise the boy.
- My Greatest Failure: Professor deeply regrets creating Master and the wormhole technology, in the long run, feeling he put all of Inkwell into jeopardy by putting his advanced AI into a body armed with such a dangerous weapon. He deliberately destroyed the blueprints for both to ensure that they could never be replicated.
- Morality Pet: Poindexter can be considered this.
- Poke the Poodle: While he's more of a threat in a sense that he can put up a fight, a lot of his schemes are still pretty small time. One of his big schemes involves causing a millennia-long heat wave so he can charge people up the wazoo for drinks at a concession stand. That's a kind of plan Dr. Doofensmirtz would cook up.
- Race Lift: Averted. He doesn't share the same change as his nephew, Poindexter.
- Reality Ensues: His Experimental Cylindroids were very expensive to build, and after Master's rebellion cost him all of his robots, Professor is rendered destitute and has nothing to show for it, forcing himself into petty thievery to recoup his wasted funds. He was also forced to scrap what little he could salvage of the other machines just to make up for the money he lost on them. While he could have sold the blueprints for the wormhole device and AI chip and gotten rich, seeing how dangerous Master became with his AI and that weapon made Professor realize that it was just too big of a risk to hand off the chance to someone else to create something as deadly as that robot, so he ends up burning the blueprints to ensure they can't be recreated.
- Team Rocket Wins:
- Unlike the Joe Oriolo series, where he never once managed to defeat Felix, he manages to score the occasional victory over Felix in this series. One instance is in a fighting tournament, where he duels Felix mano to mano and wins fair and square and without any access to technology.
- The victories his creation Master earns over Felix would technically count as well, if Master were still on Professor's side and wasn't a threat to everything else in Inkwell besides Felix, including Professor himself.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Jim Cummings
- Anti-Villain: While still working as a hired gun for Professor, he's not as mean as he is in the Joe Oriolo cartoons and is just in it to pay the bills. Outside of his job, he's actually on affable terms with Felix.
- Genius Bruiser: In this timeline, he's quite well-read and cultured, but he's looked down upon as just being a strong guy, so he rolls with it.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: He's much smarter in this series than in the Joe Oriolo cartoons, but he puts on a dumb persona.
- Punch-Clock Villain: He treats working for Professor as a job and nothing more.
- The Worf Effect: He actually tries to help Felix fight Master on one occasion, but he's almost immediately taken out of commission by the robot.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Piers Stubbs (young). Benjamin Diskin or Tom Felton
- Adaptation Dye-Job: This version of Alex has gray fur as oppose to his past depictions featuring snow white fur. The change would differentiate him from Kitty and avoid any design confusion.
- Cats Are Mean: Played straight.
- Cold Ham: Alex slowly grows to the adopt this trait later in his appearances.
- Sibling Rivalry: One could say Alex is a younger Cain to Felix's older Abel within the Oriolos household (despite being adopted siblings).
- Woobie, Destroyer Of Dream Worlds
Slicer, AKA Experimental Cylindroid #02
The Professor and Poindexter's robotic assistant. Originally one of six Cylindroid combat machines built by Professor as potential robot soldiers—despite his designated number, he, alongside Master, was the last of the Cylindroids to be finished, with his specific purpose being Professor's personal bodyguard. His original body along with those of his siblings was destroyed by his "brother" #06 (Master) when he rebelled against Professor. Unlike the others, Poindexter was able to salvage his AI chip and hardwired him into Professor's computer, where he continues to serve them.
- Anti-Villain: While he serves Professor and Poindexter, he's not menacing or evil in personality, just very loyal to both of them. He doesn't seem to have any hard feelings against Felix either, and just treats helping Professor going after him as a job.
- Canon Foreigner: While his appearance is similar to that of the original Master Cylinder, he's a new character created for this series.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Master almost killed Poindexter by using a wormhole to summon a column of fire as an attack, but Slicer took the blow for Poinsy and allowed him to escape safely. The extreme heat reduced his body into a melted lump of slag, but his AI chip remained intact for Poindexter to salvage from his remains. Professor allowed Poinsy to keep it and hardwire it into their computer out of gratitude for his actions.
- Mythology Gag: His design is based on the original Master Cylinder, minus the eyebrows and with regular hands instead of claws.
- Nice Guy: Unlike the sociopathic Master, he was programmed to be loyal and courteous to Professor and Poindexter, acting as a personal bodyguard for them.
- Non-Action Guy: Became this after he lost his original body and was hardwired into Professors computer. He just runs the base and relays info to Professor.
- Punch-Clock Villain: Like Rock Bottom, he just treats helping Professor get Felix as a job despite his loyalty to him.
- Taking the Bullet: He took a head-on attack from Master that ends up destroying his original body. just to save Poindexter's life.
- Undying Loyalty: He is completely loyal to Professor and Poinsy.
Master, AKA Experimental Cylindroid #06
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Corey Burton
The real main villain of the series, Master is one of a series of six prototype robots collectively called the Experimental Cylindroids, created by the Professor with the purpose of taking down Felix. He is equipped with the most advanced A.I. ever committed to a computer and armed with a powerful robotic body. His most notable feature, however, is a unique Wormhole Generator built directly into his right arm, which allows him to summon anything he needs or travel or reach to anywhere he wants with only the flick of a wrist, allowing him to perfectly counter Felix's Magic Bag of Tricks. Professor programmed his personality to be as ruthless and cold as possible to ensure that he would be the perfect soldier to help him in his goals. Unfortunately, the machine got too smart for its own good, and eventually rebelled against Professor and left to further his own evil ends.
- Anti-Magic: Professor designed his armor to be immune to directly magical attacks. Felix's Magic Bag can't directly harm him and just returns to normal if it tries to, and magic spells or magical attacks have no effect on him at all. He is not immune to the effects of Felix's tail, however, which comes in handy when Felix turns it into a sword to slice off his arm.
- An Arm and a Leg: He loses his wormhole-equipped arm to Felix in a later fight. Felix considers it to be returning the favor for Master destroying his magic carpet in the past.
- Adaptational Badass: Much more powerful than the main universe Master Cylinder, who was already a Knight of Cerebus, simply by the fact that he as a wormhole device that allows him to one-up Felix and his Magic Bag of Tricks in a fight. In this universe, Felix loses almost every fight he has with him. He's also this to The Duke of Zil, who he is partially based on—the latter was a bumbling tyrant of a schoolyard bully who would've been a nobody without his army of Cylinders.
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: In this timeline, he's not a cyborg, but a full robot built by Professor who rebelled against him when he got too smart for his own good.
- Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: The original Master Cylinder wasn't harmless, but his victory streak was roughly the same as Professor's. In this timeline, Cylinder is an out and out machine created by Professor and manages to mop the floor with Felix nearly every time they fight.
- And I Must Scream: His ultimate fate—Queen Moonbeam and Felix banish him to the moon (by banish, we mean hit him with enough force to send him flying out of the atmosphere and land right on the moon surface) where he'll remain in an environment where he's no threat to anybody and absolutely can't escape from.
- Artifact Title: Despite being part of the Cylindroid series, he's a humanoid robot who has virtually no resemblance to his brethren or anything remotely cylindrical in appearance.
- Badass Cape: Wears a long, black cape. It wasn't part of his original design, but something Master added to himself for the hell of it. It's also designed to instantly detach should someone try to snag it.
- Big Bad: Is the biggest threat of the series until Felix slices off his wormhole-equipped arm and he loses his mind after failing to find it in the chasm it fell down. He doesn't stop being a threat, but he's reduced to a secondary villain who is much too unstable and weakened to be the same threat to Felix as before. That is, until Felix and Moonbeam defeat him one more time and banish him to the moon, putting him out of commission for good. And then General Clang shows up from space and destroys him, taking over as the series Big Bad from him.
- Big "NO!": He belts one out when Felix and Queen Moonbeam sent him flying into space, trapping him on the surface of the moon.
- Bond Villain Stupidity: He could have effortlessly killed Felix at any moment he wanted with his wormholes, but he's too enamored of the idea of milking every bit of the cats suffering for his own enjoyment to go in for a quick kill.
- Break the Haughty: And boy, does he wind up broken. To elaborate, The only thing that holds his sociopathic, vain personality together is that he needs to cater to his insane ego in order to remain remotely sane—Professor specifically programmed him to be this way. When Felix finally defeats him and cripples him by slicing off his arm, and he tries and fails to find it, his ego is absolutely crushed and he loses any sense of mental stability he had. Even after he eventually regains it, his last appearance ends with a truly humiliating defeat where his attempt to usurp Fillydelphia goes down in flames and he's banished by Moonbeam and Felix to the moon, where he's completely alone, helpless and harmless. He reaches the point of complete mental collapse and despair once the situation sinks in. And then General Clang destroys him when he arrives near Inkwell.
- Brought Down to Badass: After Felix slices off his arm that's equipped with the Wormhole device, he becomes much less powerful. But still, he's a super-strong robot who can fight Felix one on one. So it's not that he's stopped being a threat as much as the playing field is just evened for Felix.
- Cape Snag: Master wears a cape for the hell of it, but it's designed to instantly detach should anyone try to snag it.
- Cast from Hit Points: This turns out to be his ultimate weakness. He was Purposefully Overpowered by Professor to be able to go one-on-one with Felix and come out on top, with his Wormhole Device making him nigh-unbeatable in a direct fight due to the sheer number of advantages it gives him. But, being a Flawed Prototype, all of the power for the very energy-demanding Wormhole Device is required to come directly from his hardwired Radioactive power core, and he ended up abusing it so frequently, that Master unwittingly reduced his operational lifespan to a mere few years, and didn't find out about this side effect until it was too late. Ironically, if Felix hadn't chopped off his arm, he probably would have gone down even sooner.
- Composite Character: The character is a mashup of Master Cylinder with elements of The Duke of Zil and his own Master Cylinder.
- Combat Pragmatist: Master always plays hardball with whatever opposes him, and he's more than willing to fight dirty to come out on top. Once he loses his wormhole device, he's forced to change his fighting style and becomes even more mobile proactive and physically aggressive than before.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: After losing his arm and spending months fruitlessly trying to find it, he loses his mind and is barely able to form coherent sentences by the time Felix finds him. He kind of regains his composure by the time he meets Midnight Jewel, but he's still rather erratic.
- Create Your Own Hero: Felix was already a hero before he met Master, but the robot unwittingly created his biggest opponent in the long run when he first defeated Felix and left him for dead.
- Death Seeker: He becomes this by the time of his attempt to usurp Fillydelphia. He finds out that, in addition to losing his most prized weapon, that he's living on borrowed time—the radioactive power core Professor hardwired into him was only meant to last a few years, after which Master was planned to be decommissioned for the next robot in the line. Master, refusing to go out with a whimper, decides to fight Moonbeam and Felix in a last moment of glory for himself, regardless of whether he comes out on top or not.
- Disney Villain Death: He seemingly falls to his death after his lost arm when Felix defeats him. It turns out a few months later that he survived, but he's not in one piece, either physically or mentally.
- The Dreaded: Everyone in Inkwell fears him, and for good reason.
- Establishing Character Moment: In a flashback, Felix's first encounter with him was a failed attempt to stop Master from terrorizing a small town. Master effortlessly beats him to a pulp, ties him up on a tree by his tail and tears apart Felix's Magic Carpet right in front of his eyes purely to spite him. He considers Felix such an insignificant threat to him, that he just leaves him for dead to rub the whole situation in his face while he continues razing the town.
- Evil Is Hammy: Subtlety is not his strong suit.
- Evil Sounds Deep: He has a very deep baritone voice. When he's using his powered armor, it amplifies it to downright demonic levels.
- Fate Worse than Death: Felix and Moonbeam trap him on the surface of the moon, leaving him completely alone, unable to harm anyone again or escape.
- Feel No Pain: He is completely incapable of feeling any kind of pain, physically or mentally. Justified, as he's a robot.
- Foil: He serves as this to Felix in ability and role—the core idea behind him was "What if Felix's Magic Bag of Tricks were used for evil instead of good?"
- Flawed Prototype: He's revealed to be this later on. He was installed with the wormhole device not as a guarantee that he would be a completely unstoppable soldier, but because his body was strictly a testbed for the power source of said weapon—specifically, his radioactive power core. Professor never intended Master for long-term use—once he had carried out his purpose to test the device and how much power it drained from the core, Professor would have either decommissioned or scrapped him in favor of a more improved model of him and the device later down the road. Master finds out too late that his constant abuse of the wormhole device in the past had taken a serious toll on his power core and that what normally would have ran over a century has been reduced to the lifespan of a mere few years, and because his power core is hardwired into him, it's impossible to remove or replace it without rebuilding himself from scratch, meaning he's living on borrowed time. Ironically, Felix actually managed to let Master keep little lifespan he has left by severing the wormhole device from him.
- Genius Bruiser: He is strong, and he is very crafty and smart in a fight.
- Grew Beyond Their Programming: Due to his advanced AI chip, he's a fast learner and he was able to develop a real personality and go well beyond his preprogrammed personality traits at an astonishingly fast rate. And he was so discreet about this that Professor was completely blindsinded when he ended up getting enough free will to openly rebel against him, and unfortunately for him, his pre-programmed traits, including his sociopathic nature, going hand in hand with this ended up making what originally amounted to a test dummy for a super weapon into one of the most dangerous threats Inkwell ever faced.
- Go Mad from the Isolation: Spending a good six months completely alone with a single-minded goal of trying to find his lost arm did not do any favors for his already warped psyche.
- Gone Horribly Right: Professor made him to be the ultimate robotic soldier and the perfect weapon to take down Felix, and he succeeded. Unfortunately for Professor, he ended up also being a walking superweapon that is impossible for anyone to control, including himself, and ends up wreaking havoc on the entire world and not just on Felix.
- Handicapped Badass: Felix slices off his arm in a later fight, leaving him with only one arm to work with. He eventually manages to build a replacement arm, but he's unable to recreate Professor's distinct wormhole technology.
- Hate Sink: Unlike the evil but comical Master Cylinder, Master is an absolutely ruthless and brutal asshole. He's a shameless sadist who loves kicking people when they're down, and he has an arrogant, smug and unlikable holier-than-thou attitude to everything around him.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: His overuse of the wormhole device before he lost it ended up draining his power core so much that it reduces Master's operational lifespan to just a few years.
- Humongous Mecha: Not his basic form, which is roughly six feet tall, but his Powered Armor is definitely this. It stands at least three stories tall in height.
- Hyperspace Arsenal: A big reason why Felix can't beat him is because Master has his own equivalent of a Magic Bag of Tricks—a wormhole device built into his wrist, which allows him to pull out or summon anything he wants or needs, including something as large as an aircraft carrier or Felix's own bag. Felix finally manages to beat him by severing his arm with a sword, which sends it—along with the hardwired wormhole—falling down a shaft.
- Kick the Dog: Master lives for this, as he was programmed to be a Sociopathic warrior and is thus incapable of feeling compassion or empathy. In Felix's first fight with him as a child, Master gives him a brutal beatdown, ties him up in a tree (by his own tail, no less) tears apart his Magic Carpet right in front of his eyes purely out of spite, and then leaves him for dead as he razes the town to the ground.
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: Felix considers slicing off his arm to be this, basically returning the favor for what happened between him and Master in their first encounter. And then there's Moonbeam and Felix banishing him to the moon after his attempt to conquer Fillydelphia goes south.
- Killer Robot: He was designed by Professor as this, but he turned out to be far, far better at it than even Professor could have anticipated.
- Knight of Cerebus: Things get much more serious whenever he's around. Tellingly, he only makes a handful of appearances, all of which are jarring in the context of a largely Slice of Life series.
- Lack of Empathy: Professor specifically programmed him to be a complete sociopath to ensure he would be a perfect robot soldier, and it comes to bite him in the ass.
- Last of His Kind: He was originally one of six prototype robots built by Professor as potential robotic soldiers, but Master deliberately destroyed the other five so that he won't have any competition. Learning from his mistake, Professor destroyed the blueprints for him and his wormhole technology to ensure that no one can recreate something as dangerous as him.
- Made of Iron: Surprisingly, averted—his armor, aside from being immune to magic, isn't particularly resilient, at least in contrast to the other Cylindroids. He's still able to stand up against common weaponry and physical attacks, but he's by no means invincible—although his inability to feel pain is a big factor in what makes him seem more durable than he really is. Justified, as Professor wanted him to me more mobile than the other clunkier models, so he had to bear with giving him lighter armor and let him use his reflexes and wormhole tech to work around his lack of durability. This is ultimately what lets Felix defeat him—he lets guard down just long enough for Felix to land a strike on him in a fight, and he manages to slice Master's right arm clean off. When Felix finds him a few months after he fell down the chasm, he's in a visible state of disrepair, with his armor being damaged from the fall and worn from exposure to the elements, and his holographic eyes are flickering. He follows Felix out of the chasm and finds Professor—Master, in a flash of serendipity, successfully strongarms Professor into repairing him and replacing his lost arm, but the latter is unable to recreate the wormhole device due to destroying the blueprints, much to Master's chagrin.
- Mecha-Mook: Initially designed as one for Professor, but that didn't work out.
- Mythology Gag:
- His introductory quote to Felix is similar to Master Cylinder's introduction to Felix in Master Cylinder, King of the Moon.
- Professor originally designed him with a fishbowl-esque visor ala The Duke of Zill, but he decided it looked ridiculous and scrapped it for holographic eyes instead.
- Master's Powered Armor is based on the Duke of Zil's Master Cylinder from Felix The Cat: The Movie. He also has an eye (his real sensors, not the holographic eyes) on his chest, which is basically where the Cylinder's own eyes were found on his robotic body. His holographic eyes are also a nod to the fact that the Duke of Zil was originally designed to have cartoony eyes visible through his glass helmet (as seen in a trailer for the film).
- According to Professor, his wormhole technology was reverse-engineered from a teleportation device given to him as a gift (actually stolen) from an alien, which turns out to be Martin the Martian and his 4th dimensional cube from the Joe Oriolo cartoons.
- Queen Moonbeam, with the help of Felix, sends him flying into space, trapping him on the moon, where the original Master Cylinder resided in the original series.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: Initially subverted, but played straight later on. At first, Master barely takes Felix seriously as a threat at all, seeing his fights with him as a game more than anything else. In fact, if he wasn't so occupied with reaping pleasure from sadistically messing around with the cat, he could have easily killed Felix in seconds by simply using a wormhole to reach inside of him and crush his heart or brain. Once Master loses his wormhole device, and later on regains some kind of mental composure, he's forced to take Felix much more seriously as a threat—during his plan to invade Fillydelphia, the first thing he does is make sure that Felix is out of the way to ensure he won't foil his plan. But when that goes south, the gloves come off and he does not hold back in fighting Felix mano to mano, even if Felix technically has him outclassed now.
- Odd Friendship: You'd think someone as vile as him wouldn't want or need a friend, but after he's banished to the moon and crosses the Despair Event Horizon, he befriends the clone of Gustos living on it. He hasn't stopped being evil, but he realizes he's stuck on the moon forever and decides to just make the best of his situation by becoming Gustos' sparring buddy so he can vent his wrath.
- One-Man Army: You might as well just pack it in if Master wants a piece of you, because no force on earth can stop him once he wants something, not even Felix, all thanks to his wormhole technology making him nigh unbeatable in a one on one fight. In Felix's first encounter with him in the past, Felix is defeated in seconds and the town Master is attacking is throwing everything they got at the robot, but he is completely unfazed and effortlessly razes the entire place into the ground by his own hands. What makes Master especially dangerous is that he answers to nobody and is completely indiscriminate about what he kills or destroys—everybody is below him, anyone can be his target, and he lives to bring suffering to others for his own sick amusement. Even after he loses his wormhole device, he's still a super strong, resilient robot who can mop the floor with most people unfortunate enough to cross his path. The only person who could go toe-to-toe with him in a direct fight was Queen Moonbeam, but even then she wasn't able to outright defeat him without the help of Felix and her daughter, because his Anti-Magic armor keeps her from directly attacking him.
- Powered Armor: He possesses a giant Cylinder robot that functions as this. It was built from the remains of his late sibling Goliath (Experimental Cylindroid #01).
- Power at a Price:
- As insanely powerful as he is in a fight, Master does have one obvious weakness; overusing the wormhole device (which he uses on a daily basis) risks overloading his radioactive power core, so he's forced to retreat and go into a long cooldown period after frequent use of it. He's still very dangerous during this time, but you at least have some kind of chance of surviving against him when this happens.
- The wormhole device is later discovered to have another major weakness: using it, especially on a regular basis, comes at the expense of draining his hardwired radioactive power core so much, that it reduces his operational lifespan to just a few years.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: During this first fight with Queen Moonbeam, Master ends the fight on a draw because he realizes neither of them are getting anywhere. He actually gets bored of the fight because of this and walks off, leaving neither side truly victorious.
- Small Name, Big Ego: He's arrogant enough to proclaim himself as King of all the World (given no one can actually beat him in a fight except Felix later on, there's not much room to challenge him in his claim except for Queen Moonbeam driving him away) and has an all around egotistical personality. The reason he calls himself Master is because he believes everyone should answer to him alone (as the quote demonstrates, he wishes to be called "Master" in the context that he is your master).
- Smug Super: He has an ego the size of Texas, and the power to back it up.
- Starter Villain: Retroactively becomes this in the scope of villains like General Clang.
- Story-Breaker Power: His wormhole device was specifically designed by Professor to counter Felix's Magic Bag of Tricks, and has no limit to where it can go or what it can pull out. In fact, if he had wanted to, he could have killed Felix in seconds with it if he wasn't so occupied making the cats life miserable and gratifying his ego. The only obvious flaw it has is that overusing it risks overloading Master's power core and requires a long cooldown time before it can be regularly used again.
- Super Strength: He's strong enough to send groups of people flying through the air with a single right hook. With or without his wormhole technology, he is not a pushover.
- Teleportation: He can do this by using his wormhole device.
- Turned Against Their Masters: He turned on Professor to further his own ends once his AI had advanced enough.
- Villainous Breakdown: When Felix slices off his arm, robbing him of his wormhole technology, he acts with absolute horror and throws himself down the chasm the arm fell down to find it. He ends up losing his mind while trapped down there and is reduced to a pathetic shell of his former self. By the time Felix finds him later, he's still fruitlessly trying to find his original arm in the chasm. Even Felix doesn't have the heart to tell him his original arm was found, but was smashed into an irreparable state from the fall.
- Would Hurt a Child: During his rebellion against Professor, Master nearly kills Poindexter, but Professor's bodyguard Cylindroid (Slicer) saves the kid in time.
- Worthy Opponent: Queen Moonbeam is the only person who could actually fight Master on his own level, and their first fight ends in a draw because Master realizes they're so evenly matched that the fight ends up going nowhere, which gets him bored enough to leave in a huff. Felix eventually becomes this to Master once he severs the robot's arm, which ends up destroying the wormhole technology and evens the playing field for both of them. Vavoom is also considered this, albeit in a humorous context, since his voice is just so destructive that even Master knows better than to pick a fight with him.
- You Don't Look Like You: He looks almost nothing like the main universe Master Cylinder—he's humanoid in appearance like the Duke of Zil, but with holographic eyes instead of a goofy fishbowl. The only resemblance he has to his original counterpart is that they have identical eyes.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Michael Ironside
A hostile alien invader from another world, serving as the series secondary Big Bad.
- Adaptational Badass: In the Joe Oriolo cartoons, he was a generic recurring henchman for the Master Cylinder. Here, he's a ruthless alien invader who is out to conquer Inkwell and answers to nobody.
- Aliens Are Bastards: Unlike the benevolent Martin, Clang is a ruthless warlord who seeks to absorb everything around him to add to his own power.
- Ascended Extra: A minor recurring lackey to Master Cylinder in the Joe Oriolo cartoons, upgraded to secondary Big Bad in this series.
- Big Bad: He takes over the role of this later on in the series.
- Energy Being: His race is made up of pure energy collected together into something resembling a physical form. He can not only kill someone by touching them, but also absorb all of their matter into himself.
- The Worf Effect: The first thing he does when he's introduced is effortlessly destroy Master while he's trapped on the moon just to show how much of a threat he is. On top of that, he also has access to the same teleportation and wormhole technology Martin and Master did, minus the power core baggage.
- You Don't Look Like You: He looks nothing like the rubbery, squishy looking alien from the Joe Oriolo cartoons.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Michael Bell
- Blank White Eyes: A very venomous look drawn with squiggly outlines and sharp corners.
- Blue-and-Orange Morality
- Body Horror: His body is very unstable, looking like Felix's design run through a never-ending Rorschach test, with parts of his ink-like form wobbling and boiling like hot water.
- Canon Foreigner: His existence is original in the Felix the Cat history, with only sharing some similarities to "Alex" from Twisted Tales by being a mirror copy.
- Cheshire Cat Grin
- No Mouth: He also switches this look whenever he's not behaving creepily in front of or stalking a person of interest.
- Cloning Blues
- Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor
- Evil Knockoff
- Kill and Replace: His predestined goal towards the original Felix The Cat.
- Lovecraftian Superpower: Inkwell Felix blows pasts Felix's limited shapeshifting capabilities to horrific displays.
- Obliviously Evil
- The Prankster: Being a twisted, ink-like being forcefully created in Felix's image, its mind believes that it must act the part as well (at least, what it believe Felix is). While Felix's trickster shenanigans are usually intended for those who deserve it, Inkwell Felix is more indiscriminate about such codes.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Rob Paulsen
An old foe of Felix who once tried to hijack his cartoon show, he left the mainland of Inkwell on a plane trip, but it was caught in a storm and crash-landed, stranding him on a deserted island for many years. During one of his travels, Felix ends up on the same island he's stuck on, and Oscar, driven mad from years of isolation, steals Felix's magic bag and takes him as his prisoner.
- Anti-Villain: While stealing the Magic Bag and trapping Felix on the island with him ultimately lands him into bad guy territory, he's not malicious so much as he's just that desperate for companionship. Plus, the years of isolation have taken a serious toll on his mind, so he's not thinking rationally about what he's doing either. On top of that, he's being played for a sap by his "friend", Fred the Coconut. Even Felix feels nothing but pity for him.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Years of isolation on a tropical island have made the already dopey cat downright eccentric and desperate.
- The Cloud Cuckoolander Was Right: It turns out he was right telling Felix about his "friend", Fred the Coconut, being alive and not being an insanity induced hallucination, but he's unaware that Fred's intentions are anything but benevolent.
- Canon Immigrant: He was originally one of the newer characters from The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat.
- Go Mad from the Isolation: Oscar has been stranded on an uncharted island for years and is desperate for any kind of companionship, to the extent that he irrationally decides to steal Felix's bag and seal it in a cave to ensure Felix can't leave him, even though Felix could have easily gotten both of them off the island with it.
- Oddball Doppelgänger
- Toxic Friend Influence: His relationship with his coconut, Fred, is revealed to be this.
- Unexpected Character: He was a minor one-shot villain for Twisted Tales of Felix, making it surprising that he returns here.
- Unwitting Pawn: He turns out to be this under the influence of his coconut, Fred.
The Duke of Zill
An old foe of Felix who once attempted to usurp the kingdom of Oriana.
- Bullying a Dragon: He foolishly tries to egg Felix into a one on one fight, and gets his ass handed to him in seconds.
- The Cameo: Makes a very brief appearance early in "The Odd Couple".
- Villain Forgot to Level Grind: Time has not been kind to him physically, and he's clearly in no shape to fight Felix again.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Corey Burton
- Adaptational Wimp: In Twisted Tales, he was implied to be the early candidate for the series Big Bad and posed something resembling a threat to Felix, although that didn't pan out. Here, he's a pathetic jerk and basically a walking punching bag for everyone around him.
- Big Bad Wannabe: Oh, he tries to be a threat to Felix, but he's small fry compared to Master and General Clang. Felix doesn't take him seriously as a threat at all.
- Bullying a Dragon: He once had the audacity to try and pick a fight with Master, assuming having a Mini-Mecha on hand would give him an advantage. The outcome is pretty much what you'd expect—the only reason Peking even survived the encounter was that Master considered him such a pathetic foe, that he decided it wasn't worth wasting his time killing him.
- Butt-Monkey: He's cocky, arrogant and loves picking fights, which more often than not leads to him getting his ass handed to him.
- Iron Butt Monkey: On the upside, he's surprisingly resilient and can take quite a beating and keep coming back no worse for wear.
- The Determinator: He wants so badly to humiliate Felix just to cater to his own ego (with the possibility of selling his Magic Bag of Tricks on the black market as a bonus) that he just refuses to give up, no matter how much he fails.
- Harmless Villain: He basically fills in for Professor in this regard.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Averted. He passes himself as having designed the tech and machines he brings with him, but he really just buys them off the black market or steals them.
- Mini-Mecha: He owns a small chicken walker style robot, and uses it to fight Felix. It ended up destroyed when he tried to use it to fight Master, but he managed to cobble it back together with chewing gum and wire.
- Race Lift: His original incarnation had Yellow Peril overtones and an exotic flair. Here, he's just a white feathered mallard.
Al Takka Nogiv
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Danny Devito or Steve Blum
A one-shot villain who appears in "To Be This Bad Takes Ages". He is the CEO of the ECHA Entertainment corporation, who run the popular Gusto the Porcupine TV show.
- Asshole Victim: He is unceremoniously killed off by Master, who uses a wormhole to summon light from the sun to flash-fry him, disintegrating him into dust. Considering how horrible of a person he is and all the hell he put his workers though, Felix, for this one occasion, has no qualms with Master taking a life.
- Bad Boss: He treats his employees like garbage, including his star character Gusto the Porcupine to the extent that he killed him and replaced him with an army of expendable clones just so he could keep whatever profits Gusto got for himself and make them easier to control.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: He's the CEO of ECHA, and is as rotten to the core as you can get.
- Fat Bastard: He's morbidly obese from his years of living a hedonistic lifestyle off the backs of others (he needs a scooter to even get around), and he's completely repulsive in personality.
- Hate Sink: He runs the corrupt non-union entertainment company ECHA, he is an incredibly greedy, extremely arrogant and self-absorbed CEO who pays his employees coffee and doughnuts money for products that make him millions in a daily basis, and steals credit for all of their hard work while he spends his days gorging himself on food and luxury while his workers spend 100 hour work weeks doing all the hard work for him. He treats his employees like crap and browbeats anyone who dares deviate from his "vision" (read: formulaic product) and calls anyone who wants a raise or better working conditions to be entitled malcontents, and they all have literal red tape covering their mouths whenever they leave the workplace, so word never gets out about how horrible it is to work for him. Even his own mascot, Gusto the Porcupine, absolutely hates working for him and only stays on board because Al keeps him locked in an airtight contract. To give an idea of how much Felix ends up hating him, when Master shows up, kills Al and destroys his entire company for trying to rope him into a contract, Felix feels vindicated to just stand by and let Master do his thing for a change.
- Meaningful Name / Punny Name: A play on "All Take And No Give", which suits his greedy, selfish personality very well.
- Take That!: His whole character is a jab at media executives, and his company ECHA is a parody of Sega. The name of the episode he's in is a play on one of Sega's old slogans ("To be this good takes ages, to be this good takes Sega."
- Too Dumb to Live: After he tries and fails to recruit Felix into his ranks, he has the audacity to try and coerce Master into being subservient to him, believing he can buy his allegiance by offering him a contract to be his next big star in place of Gusto on the spot. Master replies by frying him into a pile of dust.
- Villain of the Week: Vile as he is, he's a small fry villain who, along with his company, is effortlessly destroyed by Master.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Maurice Lamarche
A one-shot character who appears in "Worst Comeback Ever". He's the hot new director of the next installment of the hit science fiction series "Space Hippies" and plans to reinvigorate the series with some controversial new changes, which immediately puts him at odds with Felix when the cat is cast in one of the lead roles of the film when his attitude clashes with the Cat'ss ideals.
- Autuer License: Wussney basically gives him complete Carte Blanche on what to do with his take on "Space Hippies", especially after he waived his director's fee.
- Both Sides Have a Point: While Rye is not a sympathetic person and Felix is right to call him out on his butt-kissing antics and his obvious lack of writing and storytelling skills, he's shown to be correct that trying to cater to the Space Hippies fanbase is akin to "holding a boxing match with a tidal wave", hence why he decided to not factor them in and take the series in a whole different direction.
- Hate Sink: While he's nowhere near as bad as Master or Al Takka Nogiv, he's an arrogant, patronizing asshole towards anyone who doesn't go along with his agenda to revamp the Space Hippies series.
- He Who Fights Monsters: He wants so badly to reinvigorate the tired and stagnant Space Hippies series and wants to pluck it away from the grasp of the unpleasable "Gatekeeper" fanbase that he claims is holding it back from growing, but ironically he becomes the very thing he hated due to his arrogant insistence that he and he alone knows what's best for the series despite his utter lack of writing skills.
- I Meant to Do That: He has a bad habit of patching up blatant plotholes and characterization issues in his script by claiming its all part of a grand plan (when in reality he's just obviously making up the story as he goes and trying to keep up with Wussney's demands) and drawing arbitrary "symbolic" connections between his movie and the original Space Hippies movies.
- I Take Offense to That Last One!: He tolerates most of Felix's jabs at him, but he gets genuinely upset when Felix disingenuously compares him to Al Takka Nogiv, pointing out that he's absolutely not in it for the sake of rolling in moolah and he has never and would never stoop as low as killing other people to control their likeness or shrewdly trying to give Master of all people a contract.
- Leitmotif: He's accompanied by a fast tempo arrangement of the classic song "Comin' Through The Rye".
- My Master, Right or Wrong: His blind loyalty to Wussney clouds any sensible judgment he would have. Even when Felix calls him out on just how pathetic he's making himself look by blindly siding with Wussney despite just how much its making people hate him, Rye rebukes him in favor of Wussney.
- Karma Houdini: He succeeds in getting Felix fired from the movie and replaced with another actor, though Felix is actually relieved to be away from him, and Felix gets the last laugh anyway as the choice of stand-in the only draw even more ire towards the director and his already controversial project.
- Only in It for the Money: Surprisingly, averted. Felix is surprised to learn that he actually waived his (already meager) director's salary in exchange for more creative control of the movie he's directing.
- Prima Donna Director: Surprisingly, averted. He's actually not that bad of a director to work with, and is at least professional with his staff and is competent at actually making a movie. But it's no secret that he's a complete asskisser to Wussney, despite his claims to the contrary, and he's extremely arrogant and pretentious when it comes to his story material, which he has no real talent for at all.
- Take That!: He's a thinly veiled parody of director Rian Johnson, who is infamous in the Star Wars fanbase for his iconoclastic treatment of the series with The Last Jedi and his stance towards a big chunk of the fanbase. The company he works for, Wussney, is also a giant jab at Disney as well.
- Villainy-Free Villain: He's a complete asshole towards Felix and the fans of Space Hippies, but he technically isn't doing anything morally wrong or illegal.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Tabitha St. Germain
- The Dreaded: Besides being an infamous assassin, she is so feared in-universe that even the seediest of bars are afraid to even mention her name, because for all they know, she could be right in the same room as them due to her shapeshifting abilities. Apparently, even Master fears her, but that may or may not be a rumor.
- Magic Pants: Her dress either changes along with her forms or simply vanishes when she transforms. Justified, as she's not actually wearing clothes—even in her "default" form, they're something she creates out of her own form.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Felix hears a story in a pub about how Jinx was somehow able to send even Master, who even Felix couldn't beat in a one-on-one fight, heading for the hills. It's not clear if it actually happened or if it's just a rumor.
- Older Than They Look: She is implied to at least be in her mid 50's or 60's, but her default form looks almost as young as Kitty Kat. Justified as even her default form isn't what she originally looked like. Felix figures this simply by the fact that while Jinx can disguise her appearance, she has no talent for vocal mimicry, and she, unfortunately, sounds her age.
- Shapeshifting Seducer: She tries to pull this tactic on Felix to try and kill him and steal his Magic Bag, but it turns out Felix was anticipating that she would do that and planned ahead.
- Shapeshifter: She is a very skilled shapeshifter who far outclasses Felix's own abilities, and she can turn into virtually anyone or anything, which proves useful in her assassin profession. The only weaknesses she has is that her transformations require intense concentration—a strong attack or startling her with a loud noise (i.e. Vavoom's trademark booming sound) can revert her back to her default form.
- Shapeshifter Mode Lock: Played With. She has shapeshifted and changed her identity so many times, that she's actually forgotten what her original body looked like, so even her default form isn't her true appearance.
- Vocal Dissonance: Her standard form looks like a teenager or young adult, but her voice sounds like someone in their mid-50s to 60s.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Rob Paulsen
A seemingly normal coconut with a painted face that secretly stalks the shipwrecked Oscar and Felix on the tropical island. First appeared in "The Odd Couple".
- Adaptational Villainy: Fruit Salad Island's Fred was mostly Chaotic Neutral.
- Animate Inanimate Object: Oscar tells Felix that he's this, but Felix writes it off as part of his isolation-induced lunacy. It turns out to not to be the case, as Fred is very much alive.
- And I Must Scream: Fred is defeated not by Felix or Oscar, but by the Magic Bag, who just happens to escape from the cave Oscar sealed it in, and Fred is unable to influence it when M.B. realizes what he's pulling on Felix and Oscar. The Bag turns into a buzzsaw and slices him in half, leaving him completely immobile and helpless once Oscar leaves with Felix off the island.
- Anthropomorphic Shift: Compared to his original design, Feline Follies' Coconut Fred is portrayed closer to an actual coconut (minus the drawn eyes and voice). However, when he gets Oscar (and later Felix) under his influence, he reverts to his original series' design.
- Chekhov's Gunman
- Character Overlap: Crosses over from Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island
- The Dog Was the Mastermind
- Half the Man He Used to Be: The Magic Bag defeats him by slicing him in half, leaving him helpless and trapped on the island when Oscar leaves.
- Hearing Voices: How he projects his voice onto those near his vicinity.
- Role Reprise: Ideally.
- Talking to Himself: Whenever he's talking with Oscar, who are both played by Rob Paulsen.
- Unexpected Character: For starters, Fred is normally not a canon character in any Felix cartoon. In fact, he was purely a Don Oriolo creation from the titular Kids WB Spongebob-expy show: Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island. Additionally, this character is one of the few voice-acting roles Rob Paulsen disowned after he originally did the gig.
An intrepid alien explorer from an unknown world who travels to Inkwell to study its denizens. Professor was formerly friends with him until he stole one of Martin's 4D Cubes for his own ends. He ends up befriending Felix and helps him time to time.
- Aliens Steal Cable: He's quite fond of Inkwell culture and pirates TV in his base to binge-watch movies. He's particularly amused by the antics of an alien named Marvin (but annoyed that he only appears in 8 episodes).
- Innocent Aliens: Like in the Joe Oriolo cartoons, he's friendly and outgoing to people he meets, with the exception of Professor.
- Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: His teleportation technology, which is incredible by Inkwell standards, is a trivial commodity to his kind, who basically treat the tech like owning a car.
- Only One Name: Unlike Martin the Martian, Martin solely goes by one name (which is an alias Felix gives him since his real name is impossible to pronounce in English) and it's left ambiguous what his species is (Martin notably rolls his eyes at Felix asking if he's a martian).
- Teleportation: His race has perfected the art of teleportation by using a device called the 4D Cube, which allows them to travel across the stars without the need of a spaceship. Professor stole one of them from him and reverse engineered it to create his wormhole device.
Wicked Witch of the Weast
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Grey DeLisle
An old witch who lives in the exact center of Inkwell (give or take a few feet) and an old acquaintance of Felix. She even helped him create his Magic Bag of Tricks to replace his destroyed magic carpet.
- Bigger on the Inside: Her house is a modestly sized hut outside, but is absolutely massive on the inside.
- Bizarrchitecture: Her house is mounted on chicken legs, and the inside of it is even weirder, complete with the obligatory reference to M. C. Escher's Relativity.
- Cool Old Lady: Despite her eccentric habits and grouchiness, she's actually a nice person once you get to know her, and she's well-read and a fan of jazz.
- Composite Character: Of The Wicked Witch of the West in design (not so much in personality), while her house is inspired by the story of Baba Yaga.
- Creepy Good
- Dark Is Not Evil: She has the appearance and name of a stock evil witch, but she's just ornery at worst and she even helps Felix out on occasion.
- Hidden Heart of Gold: She feigns being evil and nasty to drive away locals and intruders from her house. She really values her privacy, so she likes to build walls and maintain them.
- Non-Indicative Name: Wicked Witch isn't her title, it's her actual name. And while she's grouchy, she's far from evil.
- Old Friend: With Felix. She's quite fond of him, what with him being a black cat and all.
- Pet the Dog: When she meets up with Felix after Master ravaged the town and destroyed his magic carpet, she offered to make it into something even better for him to help him out in the future, which culminates in her creating his iconic Magic Bag of Tricks, with it being made out of a drop of Felix's own ink-blood and the remains of his magic carpet.
- Punny Name: Her name is an obvious play on the Wicked Witch of the West, with Weast being a portmanteau of West and East (she lives in the exact center of Inkwell, so she's smack in-between the East and the West).
- Retired Badass: She was quite a powerful and active witch in her younger years, but she's retired from actively practicing witchcraft and takes it easy in her older days. She can still conjure up a mean spell, but she's more laid back than before.
- Superman Stays Out of Gotham: Justified, as she's retired, really values her privacy, and her magic is useless against Master anyway.
- Wicked Witch: She has the look down and even has Wicked Witch as her name, but she's a subversion of it in personality.
Queen "Abeerah" Bee
Proposed Voice Actress(es):
- The Ace: Her hive community views her as such due to her lineage and PR methods, but her closest associates in The Apiary Nexus know better. As a result, her associates develop the hive's first underground Parliament system in order to help Abeerah.
- Alpha Bitch
- Amazonian Beauty
- Bee Afraid
- Blade Below the Shoulder
- Blood Knight
- Canon Foreigner
- Civilized Animal
- Insect Queen: Duh, though not quite the villainous type. Usually.
- Legacy Character: Abeerah is the recent descendant of a long line of previous "Queen Bees".
- Lightning Bruiser
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: She had two pairs of arms equipped with retractable stinger blades, skilled in CQC, and knows the high-brow art of competent multitasking!
- No Social Skills
- Older Than She Looks: Her current age is the equivalent of a human's mid-30s, but she could easily pass off as being a 17-year-old (no thanks to her personally). In a one-off conversation with Kitty, she would mention a trait from her species' genus biology allows them to slow the physical effects of aging through their honey usage.
- One Name Only: Direct children of previous Queen Bees are only given one unique name.
- Princesses Rule: Downplayed. She officially has the title of Queen (seeing as there has never been a King in the Hive's history), but she doesn't mind being called "Princess" affectionately. Belitter her with the title, though...
- The Rival: Her kingdom has a fierce rivalry going on with Queen Moonbeam and her fillies, and she and Moonbeam hate each other's guts. They do reluctantly team up to try and fight Master when he attacks Fillydelphia though.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Bee is very willing to fight against anything that may bring harm to her or her colony. And, when the time comes, speak awkwardly as a national leader.
- Smug Super
- Timm Style: Abeerah is intentionally drawn in this "Bruce Timm meets Shane Glines" art style to reflect the Feminist Fantasy action cartoon genre she would belong to in this world.
- Statuesque Stunner
Inky and Winky
Proposed Voice Actor(s):
Felix's prepubescent nephews.
- Adorably Precocious Children: A trait more prominent in Inky's case, but Winky does have his own shines once in a while (usually to respect his brother's wishes).
- Divergent Character Evolution: The original designs for Inky and Winky were shrunken clones of Felix's. Under the hands of Joe and Don Oriolo, they later received a treatment similar to DuckTales's Huey, Dewey, and Louie (same clothes, different colors for each). Feline Follies would build upon that by giving them more white fur accents and other modifications that follow a "uniformed, yet different" theme (similar to the approach of a X-Men costume). This way, they would stand out more against Felix and amongst themselves.
- The Dividual: They're more likely to portray the "Syndividual" type, but they do have their "Twindividual" moments (notably Finishing Each Other's Sentences). You would normally never see the two apart for more than a couple of minutes (unless it's plot-relevant).
- Genius Sweet Tooth
- Little Professor Dialog
- Single-Minded Twins: They both finish each other's sentences (sometimes out of habit), enjoy tinkering with science-related endeavors, and messing with others through light fun. Otherwise, they have their distinct personality traits that can cause friction at times.
- Theme Twin Naming: Their names rhyme with "inky".
- Think Twins
- Trickster Twins
Proposed Voice Actor(s):
- Black Bead Eyes: Combined with Skintone Sclerae akin to his comic strip design.
- Canon Immigrant: He was one of Pat Sullivan's obscure comic book characters created around Felix's initial comic run (the comic strip "Laura [The Parrot]"). He's certainly not the last one either.
- "Flockin' elk..." when stressed out.
- Cool Pet: Terry keeps a persistent, yet typical parrot named Laura around his home, mainly to provide some decent company.
- Crusading Lawyer: He's a lawyer by trade and travels all over Inkwell to represent clients.
- Only Sane Man: He desperately tries to convince himself to be the case.
Det. Shamus T. Goldcrow
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Keith David note
- Badass Baritone: Considering the desired voice actor's notable usual roles, this was a given to match his hardboiled cop persona.
- Canon Immigrant: He was, originally, one of the newer characters from The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat.
- The Comically Serious
- Creepy Crow
- Dark Is Not Evil: He gets the receiving end of this even worse than Felix.
- Fedora of Asskicking: The detective fedora blends nicely with the color matching trenchcoat. It also tends to obscure his eyes to intimidate his foes.
- First-Person Smartass
- Genre Refugee: Shamus's down-to-earth detective lifestyle would tend to clash with the fantastical nature of Inkwell and the surrounding world.
- Good Is Not Nice
- Good Old Fisticuffs: He may have feathers for hands, but they're posable enough to form hard-hitting strikes.
- Hardboiled Detective
- Hero of Another Story: Shamus's occupation naturally allows him to solve mysteries in the background of Felix's follies. He even gets some episodes in the starring role.
- Loners Are Freaks
- Not as You Know Them: Feline Follies' Shamus behaves in a far more cynical manner and loves to play up the noir and pulp novel detective traits compared to his previous appearance. Felix loves to exploit this fact, much to Shamus's annoyance whenever they meet up.
- Not-So-Badass Longcoat: Despite having a hard time nailing the Anti-Hero archetype, Shamus's trenchcoat aesthetic is an inversion when he isn't trying too hard. It has an aged '30s design reminiscent of similar detectives like Dick Tracy.
- Occult Detective: Surprisingly not his area of expertise, in contrast to the unusual world he lives in. His cases primarily deal with mundane mysteries (with a tendency to take them to the extreme). Still, it wouldn't stop him from taking up a case involving some bizarre alien cults around Inkwell.
- Private Eye Monologue: A real habit of his character to suddenly jump into these long-winded retrospectives (with the Deliberate Monochrome) detailing his surroundings, plans, and situations. During a (begrudgingly made) team-up, Felix would break into one of his monologs just to mess with him.
Proposed Voice Actor(s):
An impish little orphan boy who travels from the North Pole to the warmer regions of Inkwell.
- Badass Bystander: This kid can send Master, one of the most dangerous beings in all of Inkwell, heading for the hills with his incredibly powerful voice—but most of the time, he's quiet and reserved and prefers to keep to himself unless there's some kind of trouble he can stop, sticking to his humble job of fishing and trading and having no interest in being a hero or adventuring with Felix.
- Beware the Quiet Ones
- Chekhov's Gunman: Felix first encounters him as a traveling fish salesman in "The Bodyguard", but is annoyed at his entrepreneurship (read: advertising in his loud voice) so he ignores him. Later on, he's is instrumental in bringing down Jinx Lynx, as his booming voice can break her concentration needed to hold her shapeshifting disguises and revert her to her default form, blowing her cover.
- Cute, but Cacophonic
- Deus Exit Machina: His powerful voice would make him a Story-Breaker Power, but he refuses to help Felix fight Master regularly due to his disinterest in being a hero, his dislike of violence and his rationale that his voice is just as destructive as Master's abilities.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep"
- In the Hood
- Legacy Character
- Make Me Wanna Shout: His voice is just as powerful as the original Vavoom's, capable of leveling an entire mountain with it on an average day, and able to blow away an entire city with it on a bad day. Even Master, one of the most dangerous beings in Inkwell, knows to give him a wide berth.
- Pokémon Speak: Averted. This incarnation of Vavoom is fully capable of saying things besides his name, whenever he decides to speak anyway.
- The Quiet One: Quiet and reserved, and doesn't talk much.
- Worthy Opponent: Played for Laughs. He is the only character in the series who could send even Master heading for the hills, even in his prime, something not even Queen Moonbeam can lay claim too.
Proposed Voice Actress(s):
- Animesque: Her design and art style is inspired by the late Osamu Tezuka's work.
- The Comically Serious
- The Cynic: A more accurate description of her personality.
- It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": "Why-Fee" is how someone would ideally pronounce her name.
- Loners Are Freaks
- Punny Name: Waifu mixed with WiFi to make WaiFi.
- Sexbot: It is implied to one of her intended purposes.
- Straw Nihilist: Starts out as a subversion, before growing to become a tamed version of an Anti-Nihilist.
- Tranquil Fury
Proposed Voice Actor(s):
Gusto the Porcupine (real name: Marty Mercer)
A corporate mascot and actor for the Gusto the Porcupine TV show, created and run by the ECHA corporation. With the help of top-secret formulas (and hack writers), they engineered the otherwise bland porcupine into a superhero, although he's only allowed by the company to use his powers as part of the show, not to actually help anyone. ECHA president Al Takka Nogiv also has him work as his bodyguard, and has him try to frame up and then kill Felix so that his company won't have any competition from him.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: He has red, yellow and blue fur (which is dyed—his natural fur color is a muted brown).
- Anti-Villain: He's not evil in personality and he's strong-armed into it, but he is trying to frame and then kill Felix for his boss. He becomes even more sympathetic when you realize that the original Gusto is dead anyway, and the clones believe they're the real deal.
- Captain Ersatz: He's a parody of Sonic the Hedgehog. In-universe, he was "created" by Al Takka as a hip, up to date superhero "inspired" by Felix himself. Felix is not amused by this fact.
- Catchphrase: "Way past bodacious!" and other 90's lingo. Note that this isn't how he actually talks—it's just corporate spiel he's forced to say.
- Cloning Blues: The third clone Felix fights has a nervous breakdown when he discovers that he's just one of many clones created by Al. The original Gusto was killed many years ago.
- Disney Death: It's revealed at the end of "Friendship is Felix" that the second clone wasn't actually killed, he just unwittingly sent himself flying onto the moon, and has been stuck there since due to the lack of gravity keeping him from building up the speed to return home. General Clang makes short work of him later on, though.
- The Dragon: Serves as this to Al Takka Nogiv, albeit unwillingly, since the latter planted a chip in his head that can fry his brain at the push of a button.
- Clone Degeneration: The third clone survived its initial encounter with Felix and the destruction of ECHA, but due to a flaw in the cloning process, it is undergoing rapid cellular degeneration by the time Felix meets him again—he looks like an old man and is reduced to hobbling on crutches in stark contrast to the blinding speed he used to be able to achieve. Al never intended the clones for long term use, so he neglected to fix this flaw.
- Doomed Protagonist: The third clone is this in "Help Me." Despite surviving his initial encounter with Felix, he's undergoing Rapid Aging due to a flaw in the cloning process that created him, and he enlists Felix on a quest to help him revert it before time runs out. Felix tries—and fails—to save his life, and he crumbles to dust right in his arms.
- Expendable Clone: The original Gusto is long dead, having been replaced with an entire army of clones of him by Al.
- Genetic Memory: Averted with his clones. They may be born with functional skills, but ECHA has to give each one a crash course on who he's supposed to be, what he should say and how to use his abilities.
- Last of His Kind: The third clone becomes this after "To Be This Bad Takes Ages", since the rest of his clones were destroyed by Master, and the DNA used to clone Gusto was lost with it.
- No-One Could Have Survived That: Felix fights him on two occasions, and both of them end in situations that should have been impossible for him to have survived—first, Felix tricking him into running headfirst into a truck, which crushes him like a pancake, and the second time involved Felix tricking him into running so fast, that after Felix sidestepped him before taking off, he ran across Inkwell and punched himself in the back, sending him flying out into orbit. Felix has no clue how he was able to survive or return either encounter no worse for wear. Felix gets his answer when he infiltrates ECHA; the Gusto he was fighting were two different clones of him. The rest of the clones are killed when Master destroys the ECHA building by using a wormhole to implode it from the inside, sucking everything in it into an Antimatter universe, but the third one survives and escapes...for a time. It's later revealed that the second clone actually survived and was just stuck on the moon, but General Clang ends up killing him.
- Nothing Personal: While he works for an evil CEO, he's not a bad guy—he's strongarmed into working for Al, and only fights Felix because it's his job.
- Odd Friendship: The second clone, who is revealed to be alive and trapped on the moon, befriends Master after he gets stuck up there with him. Master has given up by this point, so he just rolls with it. They seem to have genuinely bonded by the time General Clang shows up and kills them.
- 1-Dimensional Thinking: He is not good at taking advantage of his speed other than for brute force, since he's not very bright and doesn't think things through. Felix exploits this in his first two fights by tricking him into using his own speed against him. It turns out there's a good reason he never learns from his mistakes—each new clone Felix fights has to be reeducated from scratch. The third clone, however, is an older one that Al had more time to train, and does a much better job at keeping Felix on his feet.
- Shout-Out: His last name is taken from Jack Mercer, the voice actor Felix in the Joe Oriolo series.
- Super Speed: He's fast, but not very bright. And for a very good reason—each clone is literally just days old upon awakening and has to be given a crash course on who Gustos is and what he would say or do. He has no experience to fall back on.
- Turned Against Their Masters: The original Gusto turned his back on Al, contract or no contract, and Al had him killed for it. The third clone Felix fights also does this, but that's mainly because he loses his mind when he finds out he's a clone and not the real deal.
- You Have Failed Me: Al claims he killed the original Gusto because his fiercely independent personality clashed way too much with his capitalistic desires. He decided it was a better investment to make a series of clones based on him that he could tailor to his will like a product, rather than as an individual. He was still working out the kinks by the time Felix found out about his scheme.
The first robot Professor ever built, predating the more advanced Cylindroid series. His sole appearance is in a flashback to an early encounter Professor had with Felix.
- Butt-Monkey: Despite his imposing stature, he was basically a walking punching bag for Felix, being far too slow and simple-minded to be any real threat.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Professor used him in an early attempt to steal Felix's bag, but the Cat effortlessly trounced the clunky machine.
- Flawed Prototype: He was Professors first foray into robotics, and given he was a clunky, barely functional machine that didn't even have AI, he had a lot of kinks to work put. Even Professor was unimpressed with the final results and kept his flaws in mind when he moved on to the Cylindroid series.
- Flat Character: He has no personality and was just a mindless robotic servant to Professor. Justified, as he didn't have any real AI, just basic preprogrammed commands and phrases.
- Meaningful Name: He has a giant, immobile jaw as part of his design.
- Mythology Gag: He's based on the robot Felix encounters in the first TV series episode, "The Magic Bag".
- Named by the Adaptation: The original robot he was based on was unnamed.
Goliath, AKA Experimental Cylindroid #01
The first of the six Experimental Cylindroids built by Professor to fight Felix, built mainly as a dry run for the series, and to correct the obvious flaws present in Professor's first robot, Lockjaw. He is a large, hulking robot built for strength and durability. He was ultimately destroyed before he could even see field action by his sibling Master. Master later salvaged his remains and converted them into a Powered Armor for his own use.
- Anti-Villain: He's probably the least evil of the Cylindroids next to Slicer, although this owes more to his lack of intelligence than anything else. He was unfailingly loyal to Professor and would have gladly served him in trying to defeat Felix, but he was also loyal to the extent that he sacrificed himself to stop Master's rampage, all just to protect his creator.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Has a booming, deep monotone voice. When Master salvaged his body and rebuilt it into armor for himself, he reused as voice chip as an amplifier for the suit for dramatic effect.
- Flawed Prototype: Professor used him as a dry run for the other five robots, and his tech is much less sophisticated than the other models. The only thing he's really good for is demolishing things, as his AI is so primitive that it can only perform basic goals. Ironically, he was intended to be an improvement over the Professor's previous attempt at making a robot, Lockjaw.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He tries to pull a Taking You with Me on Master to stop his rampage, but it fails.
- Humongous Mecha: He absolutely towers over the other Cylindroids, standing at least two stories in height. Master actually makes him a full story taller once he salvages his remains and converts them into a Powered Armor for his own use.
- Machine Monotone: Speaks this way due to his crude AI.
- Meaningful Name: His name fits his massive size and strength and is an obvious reference to the Biblical Goliath.
- Mighty Glacier: Slow as molasses, but strong enough to level an entire building.
- Mythology Gag: His design is based on the Master Cylinder's early design from "Master Cylinder, King of the Moon", where he was a very large robot. His revamped form as a Powered Armor for Master is based on the Duke of Zil's Master Cylinder from Felix The Cat: The Movie.
- Taking You with Me: He tries to do this to stop Master's rampage by trapping him in a building and leveling it from the inside, with the intent of crushing both of them to death. It fails because Master uses his wormhole device to escape just in time.
- Terse Talker: He speaks in stunted, short sentences due to his low-grade AI.
Claws, AKA Experimental Cylindroid #03
The third of the Cylindroids, he was intended to be an improved version of Goliath, having his incredible strength but in a much more compact body. Master defeats him by severing his limbs and then smashing his body into a pile of unrecognizable scrap.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Master defeats him not through raw power, but by opening wormholes around him to engulf his limbs, severing them. This renders Claws helpless and vulnerable for Master to bash to pieces.
- Jerkass: His personality closely resembles the Professors, acting grouchy and all-around unpleasant to everyone around him. Professor himself found him annoying to be around.
- Mythology Gag: His design is based on the Master Cylinder's third design from the Joe Oriolo cartoons, specifically the one used in Martin the Martian Meets Felix the Cat where he has legs and a mechanical jaw. He also had the original Master Cylinder's wheezy Irish accent.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: He tries to personally take down Master as retaliation for the destruction of Goliath.
- Super Strength: Very physically strong and fast, to where even Master knows better than to try and fight him mano to mano.
Hazard, AKA Experimental Cylindroid #04
The fourth of the Cylindroids, he is a robot designed to be modular and able to adapt to numerous specific purposes, also being built to be sturdy enough to travel through very dangerous terrain like active volcanoes and sites where radiation is leaking. His most distinguishing feature is a levitator device built into his torso, intended for both practical and combat purposes. Professor intended to use him for both menial purposes such as transporting hazardous material without actually touching it, but also had combat purposes in mind for it (such as using its power to pin down or capture Felix). Master destroyed him rather quickly, and Professor had his remains converted into a furnace afterward.
- Dungeon Bypass: Master can't actually harm him due to his ultra-sturdy armor, so he uses a wormhole to reach inside of him and tear out his AI chip, crushing it under his foot and leaving his body a lifeless hulk. Professor scrapped his remains into a furnace after the fact, as he wanted nothing more to do with combat robots after Master's rebellion.
- Made of Iron: He was by far the most resilient of the Cylindroids in construction since his purpose was to be able to travel on terrain too dangerous even for the other robots to set foot in. Master can't even put a dent in his armor plating, so he's forced to get creative in defeating him.
- Mythology Gag: His design is based on the Duke of Zil's mass-produced Cylinders from Felix the Cat: The Movie.
- Hot-Blooded: He has a fiery temper and took deep pride in his job of being able to go places even Master wouldn't think of setting foot in.
Spiral, AKA Experimental Cylindroid #05
Spiral is basically a hovering tank armed with multiple heat rays. While he's designated as Cylindroid No. 05, he was actually the second of the Cylindroids built (but wasn't finished until No. 03 and 04 were). He was adorned with a grumpy, bitter personality due to him being the test-bed for a more advanced AI chip (similar to the one used by Master), but in a body that couldn't remotely take advantage of it. Master defeats him by bending his ring of laser cannons to where they can't fire—because of Spiral's unhappiness with his own life, he deliberately allows Master to sabotage him, and fires the damaged cannons, overloading his power core and destroying himself in the process.
- I Cannot Self-Terminate: He becomes a suicidal death seeker, but he's unable to actually destroy himself with his own weaponry. He actually begs Master to sabotage his laser cannons so he can end his miserable existence.
- Crippling Overspecialization: The only thing he can do is float around and shoot things. When he was operational, he lamented about how he couldn't even refuel himself without help because he didn't have hands.
- Death Seeker: A core aspect of his personality, both a flaw in his AI chip and a result of the circumstances he's in, hence why he asked Master to help destroy himself. Ironically, Master ends up sharing this same trait with him later on.
- Driven to Suicide: He deliberately overloads himself to explode after Master sabotages his laser cannons. He was not happy about his design or his general purpose in life.
- Energy Weapon: His default weapon is a turret of heat rays built around his body.
- Gone Horribly Right: His AI chip was meant to be advanced enough to make him think as quickly and be as aware as a real person to give him the edge in combat. Unfortunately, it worked too well, to the extent that Spiral grew to hate his life due to being so intelligent, but also aware that he's stuck in a rigid, overspecialized robotic body.
- Grumpy Bear: His personality was basically that of a grumpy old man, bitter about how the only things he was able to do was float around and shoot anything in his line of sight despite having an incredibly advanced AI chip.
- Shout-Out: His design is inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's artwork for a "fighting machine" (basically a very early tank).
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Tara Strong
The first unicorn born in 100 years (although she would much prefer it if you just called her a Filly), one of two surviving unicorns in Inkwell, and next in line for the throne of a far off kingdom of horses called Fillydelphia. Felix encounters her in a later story when Master is trying to usurp the kingdom for his own ends.
- Anti-Magic: Her magic is so strong that it can temporarily negate other forms of magic, including the abilities of Felix's Magic Bag, forcing the cat to fight her with his wits.
- Berserk Button: She makes it very clear to Felix when they fight that she prefers to be called a Filly like her brethren, and does not like being called a Unicorn. It mainly stems from her self-loathing personality and insecurities, especially since her parents (normal, non-magical horses) abandoned her out of fear of her abilities.
- Be Yourself: Felix convinces her that it's not her powers that she doesn't have control over, but that she's allowing her own fears to eat away at her, encouraging her to just embrace her abilities instead of trying to run away from who or what she is.
- Boomerang Bigot: Downplayed. She resents the fact that she's a unicorn, but it's a byproduct of her own self-loathing personality, since being the first unicorn born in 100 years was what caused her blood parents to abandon her.
- Brought Down to Normal: She tries taking a potion that Master gives her to negate her magical abilities so she can try to live a normal life, but for better or worse, it only works for a good half hour—her magic is just too strong to suppress in the long run.
- Brought Down to Badass: Even when the potion is suppressing her magic powers, she's still a physically strong and capable fighter.
- Composite Character: Her personality takes aspects of Twilight Sparkle and her friend Applejack and mashes them together.
- Crash-Into Hello:
- When she runs away in disguise, she unintentionally crashes right into Felix, who had arrived in her country that same day. In stark contrast to how nasty the other horses treat him, she politely apologizes and hightails it. Felix notices her horn hidden under her cloak (a feature unique to unicorns) but doesn't give it much thought until he notices none of the other Fillies have them and Moonbeam spills the beans about what happened.
- This happens again later when she tries to sneak off the island by boat—and runs headfirst into Master, who by sheer chance has walked ashore onto the island.
- Deal with the Devil: Master preys on her fears of losing control of her powers by offering her a suppressant potion in exchange for helping him defeat Felix because at this point, Master has lost his wormhole technology and is no longer able to quickly overcome Felix like before. The specific terms of the deal are that if she helps him kill Felix, he'll give her the potion and, in her eyes, keep her magic from going out of control and risk hurting her friends and family. When she seemingly succeeds in offing Felix, Master gives her the potion—and promptly stabs her in the back once it takes effect.
- Doing In the Wizard: Downplayed. After hearing her backstory, Felix speculates that her being born a unicorn to an otherwise normal family is some chance of fate induced by magic, but Moonbeam, oddly for a magical creature, suggests to him that it was more likely the result of a recessive gene (it was not unknown for fillies and unicorns to breed with each other) and not something set into motion by an unknown force. She's willing to give the benefit of the doubt to either, but she is more inclined to believe it's the latter.
- Easily Forgiven: Despite almost getting Felix killed and unwittingly helping out Master, Felix has no hard feelings towards her and even gives her a pep talk to make her stop being so hard on herself before they head off to try and stop him. It helped that she made it clear beforehand that she didn't hate Felix and was only fighting him for the sake of her kingdom's safety. Her mother also has no hard feelings towards Midnight's actions, since she was just too happy to see her alive when she thought Master had killed her. It helped that Felix explained the situation and that her daughter had come to her senses.
- Expy: Of Twilight Sparkle in general appearance, but personality-wise she's fairly different.
- Happily Adopted: She is Queen Moonbeam's foster daughter and next in line to the throne of Fillydelphia. She truly loves her mother, although she's obviously uncomfortable with the idea of being a future ruler.
- Horrible Judge of Character: She really should have caught on sooner or later that Master was up to go no good. The fact that Master was enticing her with a potion that would have robbed her of powers and thus make it easier to conquer the kingdom with one less unicorn to worry about really should have tipped her off that something was off about the whole situation. However, she is young and naive, desperate to get rid of her powers, and because Fillydelphia is so isolated, she had no idea who Master really was or what his real plans were.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: She lives in fear of losing control of her powers (and is so scarred by her blood parents abandoning her because of her powers that she developed a self-loathing mindset that makes her feel ashamed to be a unicorn), so she makes a deal with Master to suppress them in exchange for helping him defeat Felix.
- Last of Her Kind: She and Moonbeam are the only surviving unicorns in all of Inkwell—the rest have either vanished or were driven to extinction by being hunted for their precious horns, and only regular cartoon horses populate it. Midnight is especially distinct in that she's the first unicorn to have been born in a century.
- My God, What Have I Done?: When Master stabs her in the back after she drinks the magic suppressant potion, she immediately shows remorse and fear for putting her kingdom in jeopardy.
- Nonstandard Character Design: Not to the extent of her foster mother, but the fact that she has a horn, unlike all of the other horses, does not go unnoticed by Felix, even before he discovers her identity.
- Nothing Personal: Even when she fights Felix, she makes it clear that she doesn't hate him and is only fighting him because she believes it'll save her kingdom.
- No-Sell: When she later arrives on the scene with Felix to attack Master, she immediately tries to attack him with a blast of magic, but thanks to his Anti-Magic armor, it doesn't even make him flinch.
- Parental Abandonment: She claims her blood parents abandoned her as a child out of fear of her magical abilities, and Queen Moonbeam adopted her in their place.
- Power Incontinence: Her magic is strong enough that it can disable the abilities of Felix's own Magic Bag, but she has a lot of trouble keeping her power under control. This is part of why she wants to run away, since she's afraid she'll hurt her friends or everyone around her if she loses control of her powers. It turns out it's less that she can't control her powers as much as she's allowing her fears to control her.
- Shout-Out: Her entire character (and all of Fillydelphia) is heavily inspired by My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Like her foster mother, she has lots of raw magical power, but she's still learning how to properly use it.
- Winged Unicorn: Her default form is wingless, but she can create artificial, mist-like wings with her magic.
Proposed Voice Actor(s): Tabitha St. Germain
The benevolent ruler of the country of Fillydelphia, and one of two surviving unicorns who live in Inkwell. She is Midnight's foster mother.
- Adult Fear: She has a very good reason to be frightened when Midnight runs away since she's inexperienced at using magic and could unintentionally endanger her life by getting in over her head. Her fears are confirmed when Master manipulates and attempts to kill Midnight. Plus, she's the closest thing she has to a family.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Out of battle, she is very kind and considerate and a good parent to her daughter. But once Master challenges her to a fight and then brags to her about how he (seemingly) succeeded in killing Felix and Midnight, she loses any sense of composure and is fully prepared to fight Master to the death.
- Composite Character / Expy: She's basically a mashup of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, but her personality and appearance owe more to Celestia.
- Disproportionate Reward: Subverted and Played for Laughs. After she and Felix defeat Master for good, she offers to honorarily induct him into the royal family and make him Prince as a reward. Felix is absolutely shocked and tries to turn down her offer—but then she reveals with a sly wink that she's just messing with him. She does sincerely knight Felix, though.
- Easily Forgiven: She is usually not one to hold grudges. Even though many Inkwell denizen ended up driving the unicorns to near extinction, she wisely doesn't hold all of Inkwell responsible for it like her filly subjects do and see the issue in a more gray matter, especially despondent that the pointless genocide ended up souring her kingdom's relationship with the rest of Inkwell. The only person she seems to hold any animosity towards is Queen Abeerah, apparently from an unfortunate falling out they both had in the past.
- Good Parents: She's Midnight's foster mother and truly loves and cares for her as if she was her own. She immediately bonded with her and adopted her when she was abandoned as a foal, and it helped fill in the void left by her being sterile, and thus unable to bear children.
- Hero of Another Story: Moonbeam's Hand Wave to Felix why she never ventures outside her kingdom anymore (besides her kingdoms sour relationship with the rest of Inkwell) implies that she's simply too tied up with her own adventures and protecting her kingdom from whatever menaces it to aid the rest of Inkwell, with the responsibility of raising a foster daughter on top of all that.
- Mama Bear: Normally composed and regal, when Master smashes into her throne room and challenges her to another fight to conquer her kingdom, she's ready to personally fight to protect her people right off the bat. But when Master also reveals that he (seemingly) killed Felix and her daughter and rubs it in her face, she absolutely loses it and holds nothing back in fighting him.
- Last of Her Kind: She and Midnight are the last surviving (or at least, the last known surviving) unicorns. Not even her magic can solve this problem. To make matters worse, she's sterile and thus can't bear any unicorn foals.
- Magic A Is Magic A: Powerful she may be, but her magic does have limits. For example, she can't turn other fillies into unicorns, as she exasperatedly explains to Felix when he suggests using that kind of spell to bring the unicorns back from the brink of extinction. She can't Time Travel either. She is also unable to revert the Rapid Aging the Gusto clone is undergoing.
- Nonstandard Character Design: Whereas most of the fillies are drawn like cartoon horses, she's depicted as being a realistic horse in both proportion and appearance. Felix is understandably quite unsettled by her appearance at first. It's supposed to be a perception thing, though; to outsiders, she has this appearance, but in the eyes of her subjects, she just looks like a much taller filly.
- Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: She may be powerful in the context of Inkwell, especially by being one of two surviving unicorns, but because almost all of the other unicorns were driven to extinction, leaving no one around to teach her anything beyond basic spells, she learned everything she knows about using her magic from self-teaching, meaning that while she has lots of raw magical power that give her the edge in combat, she's unable to harness it for more complex spells. She claims her magical prowess is nothing compared to the strongest of the unicorns in their prime.
- One-Man Army: Taken to a literal extreme. Besides being a very strong magical warrior in combat, her kingdom has no army, but due to just how powerful Queen Moonbeam is, they don't need one—no one is suicidal enough to even think of invading her kingdom at the risk of incurring her wrath (unless you're another One-Man Army like Master). Lampshaded when she reveals this to Felix, who is understandably shocked.Felix: H-hold on a second. Master or some fascist regime could show up right at your door at a moment's notice, and you have no army?!
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite the filly populations general dislike of outsiders, she is on friendly terms with Felix and is perfectly willing to help him out.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: When Master attacks Fillydelphia, she immediately goes toe to toe with him a fight. Despite the former's Anti-Magic armor protecting him, she's able to fight him to a draw by using her magic creatively (i.e. her magic can't harm him directly, but she can use proxy attacks like temporarily sealing him in a barrier of ice).
- Superman Stays Out of Gotham: Hand Waved; she's simply too busy ruling her kingdom to go around helping Felix or others save parts of Inkwell from whatever threat rears its ugly head. She occasionally traveled outside of it in the past, but between what happened to her race (especially the unicorns) when they tried and failed to integrate with the rest of Inkwell and learning about what happened to the Kingdom of Oriana at the hands of Master, she now cautiously stays put in her kingdom to keep it from meeting a similar fate.
- The Worf Effect: Averted; unlike the characters she's based on, she isn't done away with once the big threat rears its ugly head. She manages to hold her own in a fight against Master, but only to a stalemate and this Master after he lost his wormhole device. His strength and Anti-Magic armor along makes him a threat to her. It takes Felix's help to truly bring him down.
Anansi, Master of Language
Proposed Voice Actor(s):
- Public Domain Character: The original Anansi character belongs in Western African culture created centuries ago, thereby making the vague, general idea unable to be copyrighted.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous
- Trickster Mentor
The Apiary Nexus
Queen Bee's homeland domain kilometers across from Inkwell.
- Amazonian Beauty: Generally, it varies among the militant populace.

- Bee People
- Child Soldiers
- Civilized Animals
- Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male

- Multi-Armed and Dangerous
- Proud Warrior Race Girls
- Statuesque Stunners: Again, it varies with design.
- Timm Style: The hive's populace are intentionally drawn in this "Bruce Timm meets Shane Glines" art style to reflect the Feminist Fantasy action cartoon genre they would belong to in this world.
