List of minor characters in Biker Mice from Mars

The American animated cartoon series Biker Mice from Mars contains a host of memorable, but minor, characters, who may make only one or two appearances, or alternatively have the status of semi-regular characters. The following list describes some of the more notable of these.

A-Bomb

"A-Bomb" (short for 'Abominable' as in 'Abominable Snowman') is a minor character in the new 2006 animated series, Biker Mice from Mars. A-Bomb appears so far only in A Hairy A-Bomb in the second season of the new series. A-Bomb is taller than Modo, he is covered in white fur and He is a member of an ape-like race/tribe of sentient humanoid beings who, while they live in caves, are not primitive, have large families, and whom (naturally? possibly indigenous) dwell underground in the Rocky Mountains on Earth.

In A Hairy A-Bomb, sightings of a large furry creature in the Rocky mountains lead the Biker Mice from Mars together with Charley to venture to the mountians to investigate it as a possible sighting of Stoker. The fact that since some of the sightings are occurring in caves have the Martian Biker Mice from Mars concerned; 'Stoker', that is if it is him, looks different, and if Stoker is 'going WereRat' out of the sunlight then his condition may well be deteriorating, he may also have been up in the Rocky Mountains in the first place looking for Tetra Hydrocarbons for the Regenerator.

Upon their first encounter with 'Stoker' they all notice that something is amiss. While Charley is left to work on Throttle, Modo and Vinnie's motorbikes she is abducted by an unseen assailent; but later, when it seems for a moment that the creature may have meant her harm that it saves her.

The creature and his people are apparently the insprations for mythical creatures like the Abominable Snowman, the Yeti, and Bigfoot--but he cannot pronounce the word "Abominable", so Charley comes up with "A-Bomb" for short. A-Bomb's people had been monitoring television broadcasts for years so they can speak English, but will wiserly avoid contact with Humans. A-Bomb took Charley because he had been watching Throttle, Modo, Vinnie and her and she "looked like the one who would listen" to what he had to say.

A-bomb explains that every ten years the "Great Thaw" occurs for one day, an event during which A-Bomb and his people can seek out a new piece of a chunk of rock, an energy supply they call "the Isotope"--which maintains their subterrainian environment. Every ten years during the day of the 'Great Thaw'--the ice that covers the gateway like an Iris melts, and a member of their people will venture above to the surface to seek out a fresh chunk of 'the isotope' to preserve their way of life. This accounts for the periodic sightings of the "Abominable Snowman", the "Yeti" and "Bigfoot". However, they have only until sunset to accomplish this OR the ice over the enterence will reseal until the next 'Great Thaw' in another ten years. A-Bomb's people have a natural sixth sense for the 'isotope' and are able to sniff it out.

Charley and A-Bomb arrive in time to rescue Throttle, Modo and Vinnie, (all of whom had been out for a missing Charley), from Ronaldo Rump and Dr. Catorkian's latest giant sized robotic Cat Commando, which with his strength, A-Bomb easily defeats. In broad daylight the Biker Mice see for themselves that A-Bomb isn't Stoker like they had previously thought. Rump, however, having seen the 'Abominable Snowman' for himself decides to capture it and put it on display and make a fortune.

The Martian Biker Mice agree to help A-Bomb find the isotope as the are also detecting readings of Tetro-Hydrocarbons. Later when A-Bomb and the Biker Mice have discovered the 'Isotope'--which turns out to actually be a large deposit of Tetro-Hydrocarbons, they are all ambushed by Rump's Catatonian forces--the Biker Mice are literalry put on ice, while A-Bomb is in chains AND Rump now has his hands on the Tetro-Hydrocarbons deposit.

The day is saved by Charley, who smashes Modo, Vinnie and Throttle out their ice prison, and Throttle in turn frees A-Bomb and altogether A-Bomb and the Biker Mice destroy Dr. Catorkian's latest weapon and reclaim the Tetro-Hydrocarbons deposit and manage to send A-Bomb home in time before the ice gateway re-freezes back over.

Acme, Kent

Kent Acme was a recurring minor character in the old 93-96 series of Biker Mice from Mars from season 2 onward.

Like with Sweet Georgie Brown and Tara Diddle, Kent Acme's appearance on live action news reports at scenes that the Biker Mice had interviened in to put a stop to Limburger's schemes in the series often used as an literary device, where, at the end of the episodes story-plot they were reported on events (like the jail breakout in Bleu Cheese Bros) wrapping up the destruction and disasters that were directly the results of Limburger's actions and misdeeds.

Kent Acme is an Caucasian American male news reporter with blond hair, who, like Tara Diddle, is seen occasionally on televised news reports, reporting "on the scene", as they happen, on the numerous and strange occurrences in Chicago that are often all the doing of Lawrence Limburger.

Kent Acme appears liberally through out the old 93-96 animated series.

Brand-Something, Sir Richard

"Sir Richard Brand-Something" is a character in the new 2006 series of Biker Mice from Mars. So far he has only made two appearances in the 1st season, it is yet unknown if he will reappear in the 2nd season.

Dashing entrepreneur and an English cousin to Chicago-based business magnate Ronaldo Rump, Sir Richard is a blond, blue-eyed Englishman. He is generally dressed in a blue shirt and trousers, with a red pilot’s scarf which usually appears to be fluttering in the breeze, even when there is no breeze.

His principal interests lie in air-travel and record stores, but he is also known to own at least some football teams.

Most recently he has branched out into robotics, building an army of android soldiers. The most advanced of these are his two manservants, Bangers and Mash. This pair appear to be human, stereotypical Jeeves-like butlers (and generally act as such), but this is only a façade. In reality they are sophisticated droids, armour plated and equipped with a variety of weapons.

Brand-Something has so far appeared in two episodes, The British Invasion and Break Up where his charming, urbane style has contrasted sharply with those of his cousin and the Catatonians.

His main interest in the Biker Mice and Stoker is for the Regenerator, which – like Rump – he proposes to use to expand his business empire. Unlike Rump, however, he appears to bear no real personal animosity towards the Biker Mice themselves, just that they are in his way.

Brie, Napoleon

Limburger's opposite number in Detroit, Brie is easily the more successful. Diminutive, wild-eyed and insane, he is also distinguished by his bizarre, Elmer Fudd-esque lisp--unable to pronounce his "R" and "L" sounds. He has a hugely inflated ego and an appalling taste that disgusts Limburger, displaying numerous portraits and gilt busts of himself in his offices.

Part of his success (apart from the fact that he is not regularly hampered by the Biker Mice) is that his right-hand man, Number One, is infinitely more competent than Greasepit; likewise the Dune Raiders that Number One leads are of are far higher quality than Limburger's goons. Ruthless, underhanded and cunning, Brie's rivalry with Limburger goes back to their school-days. When not pirating Detroit's resources, Brie concentrates his efforts on trying to force Limburger out of Chicago and take over his empire himself.

A typically elaborate scheme was that chronicled in Back to Mars. After seemingly arranging for the Mice (without their knowledge of his involvement) to capture Limburger, they take him to Mars, leaving Chicago free for Brie to move in. Meanwhile, Brie sent faked evidence to Mars, 'proving' that the Biker Mice had turned traitor, with the result that on their arrival they were condemned to death, thus ridding Brie of Limburger and the Mice in one go (well, that was the theory, at least, though of course the plan was foiled). It is interesting to note that the Biker Mice obviously felt Brie was a greater threat, since on their return to Earth they actually joined forces with Limburger to evict Brie from Chicago.

Limburger's chief Plutarkian rival from Detroit. Except for the fact that Brie usually seems to be rather successful at what he's doing. He and his "Number one" (A gun for hire with a big red beard and sunglasses) basically have Detroit in the palm of his hand. Despite this, Brie's attempts at taking out the Biker Mice are just as futile as Limburger's himself. His efforts are not helped by his frequently going after Limburger at the same time. He is small of stature and owns a large variety of facial masks, but wears only one, with a crazy eye. He also speaks with an accent very similar to Elmer Fudd.

Brown, Sweet Georgie

George "Sweet Georgie" Brown was a recurring minor character in the old 93-96 series of Biker Mice from Mars, straight from the first episode onward. Sweet Georgie Brown was voiced by Jess Harnell.

Although Sweet Georgie Brown makes no physical appearance--(except in Vicious Cycles, where Limburger has him tied up, gagged and a bag placed over his head in order to hyjack the radio station and set a trap for the Mice, Sweet Georgie Brown had no speaking role in that episode)--his vally accent is non-the-less a welcomed and recurring celebraty voice to the Biker Mice from Mars', frequently praised as their undisputed favourite DJ of Hard rock and Heavy metal Rock and Roll Music.

Like with Kent Acme and Tara Diddle, Sweet Georgie Brown's role in the series also included giving news updates between songs, that would userally in episodes alerted the Biker Mice to Scheams of Limburger's that would put some part of the city of Chicago at risk.

Century, Eon

Eon is a one-off character in the old 93-96 animated series Biker Mice from Mars. Eon appears only in Mad Scientist Wanted, in season 2, and was voiced by Rob Paulsen. Eon works for the Cosmos Contraption Company, an intergalactic corporation. His parents also both work for Cosmos; his father as a senior executive and his mother as Chairman of the Board.

In the episode Mad Scientist Wanted, Eon, Era and Mr. Century, a trio of aliens from Cosmos, appear unnoticed during a skirmish between the Biker Mice from Mars against Limburger's goon squad led by Dr. Karbunkle as he operated his invention-of-the-episode (in this episode a device that animates rock into whatever its shaped into, such as a rock-monster).

The technology available to the aliens from the Cosmos Contraption Company allow them to simply pause time and extract both Dr. Karbunkle and Charley Davidson from the scene and place them standing together, motionless, with a pair of strange devices attached to their foreheads that allow the aliens to access and view specific memories from both Charley and Dr. Karbunkle; the why--to display certain memories as resumes to Mr. Century.

Eon and Era are both rival executives of the Cosmos Contraption Company and are later revealed to be brother and sister, (which illustrates the depth of their rivalry). A promotion to a higher position is open and they are both vying for it. To decide who will receive the promotion, Mr. Century, a senior executive, (who is later revealed to be their father), has assigned them both with finding a new "Grand Designer" for Cosmos and whoever's choice is picked will receive the promised promotion. The alien siblings' well-informed head-hunters performed a galaxy-wide search, compiled a list of talented inventors and narrowed their choices down to two names: Era chose "Dr. Benjamin Boris Zachary Karbunkle" while Eon favored "Miss Charlene 'Charley' Davidson", whom he affectionately referred to as the "local master wrench jockey."

When Era tries to show-up Eon's choice by spitefully commenting that Charley has never built anything like a Transporter Booth, (even though Mr. Century remarked that transporter technology was old news), Eon counters that while she had never built a Transporter Booth, Charley was competent and had even made repairs to Karbunkle's Transporter Booth on special occasions (A Scent, a Memory, a Far Distant Cheese). At first, Mr. Century chooses Karbunkle over Charley and ordered that she be destroyed so that she could not be recruited by a rival company, and then Eon pulls up more of Charley's memories to impress Mr. Century and to preserve Charley (and to stay in the running for the sought-after promotion).

Eon presses his case, displaying scenes that highlight the fact that Charley is not only efficient and competent but she is resourceful, able to provide powerful upgrades when the going gets tough; the point that Eon is making is that Cosmos values employee that can accomplish a lot "all under budget," a quality that they'll find in Charley, but not in Karbunkle.

Century, Era

Era is a one-off character in the old 93-96 animated television series Biker Mice from Mars. Era appears only in Mad Scientist Wanted, in season 2, and was voiced by Susan Silo.

Era works for Cosmos Contraption Company, an intergalactic corporation, and is also the daughter of a Senior Executive (father) and the Chairman of the Board (mother) of the company.

The episode Mad Scientist Wanted features Eon, Era and Mr. Century, a trio of aliens from Cosmos Contraption Company. The trio appears unnoticed during a skirmish between the Biker Mice from Mars and Limburger's goon squad led by Dr. Karbunkle, as Karbunkle operates his invention-of-the-episode. In this episode, the invention is a device that animates rock into whatever its shaped into, such as a rock-monster.

The technology available to the aliens from the Cosmos Contraption Company allow them to simply pause time and extract both Karbunkle and Charley Davidson from the scene. The pair is placed standing together, motionless, with a pair of strange devices attached to their foreheads that allow the aliens to access and view specific memories from both Charley and Karbunkle. The purpose of the devise is shown to enable the display of certain memories as résumés to Mr. Century.

Eon and Era are rival executives of the Cosmos Contraption Company and are later revealed to be brother and sister, illustrating the depth of their rivalry. A promotion to a higher position is open and they are both vying for it. To decide who will receive the promotion, Mr. Century, a senior executive, (who is later revealed to be their father), has assigned them both with finding a new "Grand Designer" for Cosmos Contraption Co. and whoever is chosen will receive the promised promotion. The alien siblings' well-informed recruiters perform a "galaxy-wide search", compiled a list of talented inventors and narrowed their choices down to two names: while Eon favored "Miss Charlene 'Charley' Davidson", Era chose "Dr. Benjamin Boris Zachary Karbunkle".

Century, Mr.

Mr. Century is a one-off character in the old 93-96 animated series Biker Mice from Mars. Mr. Century appears only in Mad Scientist Wanted, in season 2, and was voiced by Dorian Harewood.

Mr. Century works for "Cosmos Contraption Company", he is the father of two Executives, and the husband of the Chairman of the Board of Cosmos Contraption Co.

In the episode, Mad Scientist Wanted, Eon, Era and Mr. Century, a trio of aliens from an intergalactic corporation, Cosmos Contraption Company, appear un-noticed during a skermish between the Biker Mice from Mars against Limburger's goon squad led by Dr. Karbunkle as he operated his invention-of-the-episode (in this episode a device that animates rock into whatever its shaped into, such as a rock-monster).

The technology available to the aliens from the Cosmos Contraption Company allow them to simply pause time and extract both Dr. Karbunkle AND Charley Davidson from the scene and place them standing together, motionless, with a pair of strange devices attached to their foreheads that allow the aliens to access and view specific memories from both Charley and Dr. Karbunkle; the why--to display certin memories as resumes to Mr. Century.

Century, Mrs.

'Mrs. Century' is an unseen character in Mad Scientist Wanted in 2nd season of the old 93-96 animated series Biker Mice from Mars.

Mrs. Century is the Chairman of the Board of the "Cosmos Contraption Company", and she is the mother of two Cosmos Contraption Co. Executives, and she is also the wife of a Senior Executive of the Cosmos Contraption Co.

She is refured to only twice, both as "the Chairman of the Board" and as "mother", but her name is not mentioned.

She is only mentioned at the end of the episode after the 'tie-breaker' battle over whenever Eon's or Era's choice of inventor was the better and which would also decide on who gain the promotion. 'Mrs. Century, having contacted her husband during the fight, informed him that of her decision to fill up the empty senior executive position with her nephew, Span (also an un-seen character).

Darla

Darla was a one-off, minor character in the 1993–1996 and 2006 animated television series Biker Mice from Mars. An alien, Darla is a member of an un-named species, who have green-blue skin, and are from an un-mentioned planet. Most notably, Darla is capable of firing bolts of pink energy out of her hands and imbuing objects, like Hard Rock's car, with abilities, like the ability to fly.

Darla is seen only in season 1, in the final episode, Hard Rock. She is the girlfriend of an alien rockstar/ex-mercenary called Hard Rock. Prior to the events in Hard Rock, Darla first meet Hard Rock, they fell in love, and Hard Rock amends his ways for a future together with her. Darla loves Hard Rock's first name, "Boo Boo", and expresses how much she thinks that its "a wonderful name".

When Hard Rock refused to destroy the Biker Mice from Mars and rob a gold shipment for Limburger, Darla, who had been abducted earlier, was revealed to be suspended over a huge vat, in order to force Hard Rock to comply. When the Martian Biker Mice managed to free themselves and Darla, she appealed to them for their help to save her "Boo Boo".

When Darla was reunited with Hard Rock on the gold train and trapped in a predicament with Limburger's goons, who were threatening to kill Hard Rock if he would not kill a guard on the train, Darla asked Hard Rock is the goon "ought to 'get it'?" and Hard Rock replied that he "can't think of anyone who deserves to 'get it' more!" Darla blasted the goon into a wall.

Later, with Limburger's tower was destroyed by the combined efforts of the Martian Biker Mice and Hard Rock, Darla and Hard Rock both decided to take "scenic route" home, Darla uses her powers to make Hard Rock's car fly off into outer space.

Diddle, Tara

Tara Diddle was a recurring minor character in the old 93-96 series of Biker Mice from Mars.

Like with Kent Acme and Sweet Georgie Brown, Tara Diddle's appearance on news reports in the series often used as an literary device in the episodes story-plot to alert the Biker Mice towards Limburger's actions and misdeeds.

Tara Diddle is an African American news reporter in a pink suit, who, like Kent Acme, is seen occasionally on televised news reports, reporting "on the scene" of the strange occurrences in Chicago that are often all the doing of Lawrence Limburger.

She appears liberally through out the old 93-96 animated series.

Fluffbottom, Pierre

Pierre Fluffbottom is a one-off character in the new 2006 animated television series Biker Mice from Mars.

Pierre Fluffbottom only appearance so-far, (if he is ever to make another), is in Rumpity-Dumpster, as he is first seen alongside Hairball and described by Rump as an "overstuffed pinata". Fluffbottom is quietly introduced by Hairball as his "half-brother from one of my father's more... unfortunate litters".

To say something about his character is to point out that even the ever incompetent Hairball thinks of Fluffbottom as incompetent. He also thinks little of his half-brother, Cataclysm.

Fluffbottom is the same size and weight as Hairball, and they will both compete over who comes out on top with their achievements, and refuses to be left out of the glory, as they try to inform Ronaldo Rump that their Catatonian scientist, Dr. Catorkian, has himself built a new Regenerator, and even though he has not performed any tests on it yet.

Despite this, they decide to test it out on the Last Chance Garage and the Martian Biker Mice. Instead, the pseudo-Regenerator blows up in their faces and lands Ronaldo Rump with a case of amnesia.

While a confused Ronaldo Rump stumbles throughout Chicago, both the Martian Biker Mice and a squadron of the Catatonian ground forces, lead by a bickering Hairball and Fluffbottom attempt to track down an amnesiac Rump as he still has the only working Regenerator on the planet.

They thumbley retrieve Rump as he regains his memory of his identiy after a hit on his head, and as they fight over who gets the credit over Rump's rescue, Rump himself proceeded to lay into them for their actions and his public humiliation.

Four-By

Four-By is a minor, but recurring character in the animated series Biker Mice from Mars. His name possibly comes from a Four-By-Four Vehicle. A human of extraordinary height (taller even than Modo’s 6ft 9), with curious red and yellow eyes, Four-By was the first black character to play a major role in the series.

Four-By had a small monster truck, which he named "The Big Mo" until later it was trashed on the fall down into the Pits but he managed to rebuild and upgrade the monster truck and re-christen it "The Mighty Mo".

Four-By was first introduced in Law of the Pits, as a former janitor, he fell into the hands of the Pit Boss, but avoided being made a slave and eventually formed a resistance movement against the crime lord.

It is unclear if he succeeded, although in the 2006 series, the Pit Boss had established a domain outside Chicago. Possibly Four-By’s rebellion forced him to relocate.

Hard Rock, Boo Boo

Boo Boo Hard Rock was a one-off character who appeared in the first season of the animated series Biker Mice from Mars . Hard Rock is an alien from an un-named planet and a former mercenary-for-hire for the Plutarkians and he is infamous for having had "destroyed a lot of places".

Modelled on British Rock Stars such as The Rolling Stones, the pink-haired, green-skinned, cockney-accented Boo-Boo Hard Rock was a musician famed across the galaxy, but was also a supervillain who was employed by the Plutarkians to wreak destruction on the planets they exploited (including Mars) with the aid of his combination guitar/energy weapon.

However, he met a girl called Darla (also green-skinned, who has the power to project blast of energy at opponents and capable of using that same energy to remotely levitating objects) and having fallen in love with her, he changed his ways for her.

By the time he was summoned to Earth to work for Limburger, he was a completely changed man and later only agreed to take the job because Limburger was holding Darla hostage.

The Biker Mice were particularly hostile to him, having seen his handiwork on their homeworld, but after he demonstrated his altered character, and thanks to Charley’s recognition of his true nature, they forgave him and helped him rescue Darla and defeat Limburger’s latest scheme.

Darla inadvertently reveals to the Biker Mice that Hard Rock's first name is "Boo Boo"--something that they all get a real laugh out of. When they poked fun out of his first name at the end of the episode, Hard Rock didn't mind as the were just having a laugh while Darla was naturally unhappy, but Hard Rock doesn't mind.

Lancelot, Sir

Sir Lancelot was a minor recurring character, featured in the Biker Knights of the Round Table two-parter in the 3rd season of the 1993–1996 animated television series Biker Mice from Mars. Sir Lancelot featured in the Biker Knights of the Round Table two-parter was based on the character of Sir Lancelot, one of the Knights of the Round Table of Arthurian myth.

Mace

Mace is a one-off, but influential character, featured only in Once Upon a Time on Mars parts One, Two and Three, the final story of the original series. Mace's name either comes from a mace; a development of club OR a mace spray, a tear gas used to incapassitate an opponent by spraying it in their faces.

Although he only appeared in the final story of the original series (Once Upon a Time On Mars) Mace is easily one of the most notorious a minor characters Biker Mice from Mars has produced.

Appearing at first to be a tan-orange-furred mouse, Mace was in fact a grey rat in a mouse mask and a pair of gloves, Mace manages to pull off a deception so stunning that none of his compatriots saw coming. Working under the codename "Deep Pocket", Mace was a spy and saboteur working for the Plutarkians to undermine the Freedom Fighters by transmitting intelligence about their movements to the Plutarkians, a task made easier by the fact that he was in charge of communications. He was placed by Lawrence Limburger (then just starting into planetary acquisition) in the Freedom Fighters, the only truly dangerous resistance group among Martian mice, as a spy.

Although his code name implies bribery, there is a suggestion in the episode that the Martian rat population were oppressed and regarded as second class citizens by the Cave Mouse government, which may account for the assistance given to the Plutarkians by Mace and the other rats.

He employed wily words and false information to demoralize Stoker, and even carried out assassination attempts in the field, for example attempting to kill Vinnie with a sniper rifle during the Battle of Brimstone. Eventually his treachery was uncovered, but not before he had done a great deal of damage. His last act, out of vengeance rather than operational reasons, was to kidnap Harley.

Mack, James 'Jimmy-Mac'

James "Jimmy-Mac" Mack was a one-off, minor character in the 1993–1996 and 2006 animated television series Biker Mice from Mars. Jimmy-Mac and the Road Ravens operated out of the "The Old Raven" a road-side tavern or bar of sorts outside of Chicago.

Jimmy-Mac is seen only in the season 1 episode, Road Ravens; Jimmy-Mac, the undisputed leader of the Road Ravens street gang, is a huge man (taller that Modo or the Pit Boss), he looks like a trucker, and is shown to be so physically tough that a punch from Throttle didn't even faze him. When Jimmy-Mac saw what Throttle really was he assumed that Throttle, Modo and Vinne were simply "mutant mice". Physically imposing in person, Jimmy-Mac has a brutish character, he doesn't like being called "little", he likes a good joke, he loves it when its payday, and he once admitted that he'd "always kinda wondered if [he] could squeeze the life out of someone!"

Immediately prior to the events in Road Ravens, the Road Ravens, on Lawrence Limburger's payroll, had began to anonymously participate in gas-truck heists and depriving the City of Chicago of its gasoline supply. As the leader of the Road Ravens, Jimmy-Mac had the Road Ravens hijacking gas-trucks when they were still on the road onroute to be delivered to their destinations. Jimmy-Mac and the Road Ravens were paid by Limburger through Grease Pit; Limburger used the Road Ravens to hide his own hand in the hijackings and deflect any blame onto the Road Ravens.

Equipped with "The Road Sucker"; described by Charley as a "weird eighteen-wheeler"; it is outfitted with laser-proof visors fitted over its front. The Road Sucker is an invention of Karbunkle's to steal gasoline from the transport tankers on gas-trucks by the means of a hollow drill-tipped arm which extends from its side and drills into the side of a gas-tank while the street gang members knock out the gas-truck driver with sleeping gas whilst the Road Sucker was free to drain the fuel away into its own storage tank--and its all over and done with in 60 seconds.

Jimmy-Mac himself first appears after Throttle and Charley, (who was in disguise), make an appearance at the "The Old Raven", where the Road Ravens hang out, after Throttle has introduced himself as wishing to join the Road Ravens after 'hearing about' them losing some members, and after he went through their 'initiation'. Lifting Throttle up several feet above the floor, Jimmy-Mac was revealed to be a giant amongst men and he's the one who ultimately decided if a new member can join his gang. Approving Throttle because he sees him as "gutsy", providing Throttle with 'official' RR trademark gear, Jimmy-Mac gives Throttle and Charley a tour of his operation and explained the set-up.

Throttle and Charley's cover was blown when Grease Pit, who had arrived with Jimmy Mac's and the Road Raven's money, recognised Charley and revealed to Jimmy-Mac Throttle's mouse-like features. Jimmy-Mac grabs Throttle and tried to crush him to death bearhug-style and quickly after he was forced to let go of Throttle when Modo and Vinnie's dramatic appearance through the wall of the Road Raven's facility. When the Martian Biker Mice escape, Jimmy-Mac pursues them with Grease Pit in the Road Sucker on the open road, attempting to run Throttle over, but when he is preoccupied with Modo and Vinnie, he doesn't pay attention to what Throttle was doing as he proceedes to cause what he described as "the mother of all brodies", further causing Jimmy-Mac, Grease Pit and the Road Sucker to crash into Limburger Tower, reducing the tower to rubble.

Jimmy-Mac made no other appearance in the series.

Mago

Mago (pronounced "Mae-go"; also known as " Mago Mouse"), is a former Martian Freedom Fighter turned unscruplious space pirate. She is an aunt of Vinnie's on his mother's side. Mago makes her first appearance in the second season of the new 2006 series of Biker Mice from Mars and prior to the events in Swimming With Sharks Mago hadn't seen her nephew, Vinnie, since he was knee-high.

Mago is middle-aged, physically short (compared to Throttle, Vinnie and Modo) and overweight; she has Beige-light gray fur and brown hair and red eyes. Ego seems to be a family trait in Vinnie's family, as Mago has herself an ego--Stoker himself commented that Mago always thinks that its 'always all about her' and that it is her greatest weakness. According to Modo, Mago had come out the top her class at the Science University of Mars.

Years ago, when Mago was still a Freedom Fighter, she was set to go far in the ranks... until she was looked over by her superiors for the top job in charge of the Freedom Fighters in favor of Stoker because she couldn't follow orders. After this Mago lost it, she went rogue, becoming infamous as a feared space pirate and gained herself a pair of alien Hammerhead-like sharks as pets. Apparently, she talks with the stereotypical manners of speaking like a pirate because her crew favour it. She continues to hold a grudge, and therefore maintains that Stoker is a traitor purely out of spite.

In Swimming With Sharks, Mago and her space pirate crew of Martian Mice had landed on Earth for the dual purpose of luring the Martian Biker Mice into a confrontation to offer them a deal to bring her Stoker--and in exchange she would provide Mars with enough water to solve its water shortage--by stealing all of Earth's water for Mars. This, she believed, would make her a hero in the eyes of the Martian population--and ultimately prove that she was the better choice over Stoker all along...

Mago seems to have kept tabs the goings on of Mars and the Biker Mice; she first greets Vinnie, she addresses him as "Little Vin-Vin", whom she recalls she hasn't seen since he was "knee-high"--forcing Vinnie to admit that she is his "Auntie Mago" and that the two of them are related through his mother; she greets Modo, asking him how his "Grey-furred old Momma" is; and she greets "Commander Throttle" declaring that she's always known that he would "go far"--the Biker Mice, however, are not with her plan to sacrifice the Earth.

Stoker came to their rescue as Mago was ready to feed them to her pet space sharks. Leading Throttle, Modo and Vinnie to safety in the water, he had had Charley leak his current position at Lake Michigan to Ronaldo Rump and the Cataonian forces--all so that he could use the 'friendly fire' to cover their escape from Mago and her crew and force Mago to abandon her plan and leave the Earth. If she returns is yet to be seen.

McCyber, Jack

Charley went to high school with a boy called Jack McCyber--whose also known as "Asphalt" Jack McCyber--a young man with an excellent crasp of computer programming and a skilled hacker. They dated in high school and after they graduated Jack went to university, excelling in the fields of computer technology and computer programing.

A year after high school Jack and Charley got together romantically and Jack asked Charley to marry him. For reasons not touched on Charley and Jack broke off their engagement and romantic attachment, but promised to keep in touch.

Jack McCyber only appears in two episodes, Virtual Unreality and Hit the Road, Jack, in the third season. Jack McCyber is introduced in Virtual Unreality, he starts out on the wrong foot with the Martian Biker Mice, appearing without an introduction in the garage and antagonistic towards the three of them until Charley broke up their fight.

Jack, while living in California, he had developed a state-of-the-art virtual reality helmet--which had brougth with him when he came to Chigago for a surprise visit to Charley. Their history was the source of a degree of jealousy and antagonism between him and Vinnie. Nevertheless, he has become friends with the Biker Mice.

A computer genius and commented as one of the best (human) bikers the Mice have ever encountered, he has used his talents to aid the Martians, but they have also brought him to the unwelcome attention of the Plutarkians, who wished to exploit these talents for their own ends.

Modo’s Momma

Although she has only appeared in person in a single episode, and that was a grainy image on the screen of a video communications unit, Modo’s "Dear old grey-furred Momma" has been ‘present’ in almost every episode, with Modo quoting her at least once each time. This is usually some piece of home-spun wisdom or etiquette ("A mouse’s best friend is his bike’", "A gentleman doesn’t speak poorly of a lady" and so on). Although she seems a respectable little old lady, there at hints at a hell-raising past – according to Modo, "My old grey-furred Momma always said, ‘Assume the position’!".

No other character exerted such a profound influence on the series without actually showing up (until the very end) as Modo’s "dear-old gray-furred Momma". While never named, and only ever appearing once (a brief shot in Once Upon a Time on Mars - Part Three", a delightful surprise and probably the greatest payoff that fans could ever have hoped for), this wonderful old dame had an almost constant presence on her show via her son, who either cried out "Oh Momma!" or quoted her endless supply of her sayings about once an episode.

We know precious little about Momma herself—the simple fact that have to refer to her as "Momma" because we never find out what her real name is the most obvious illustration. She had at least two children: Modo (of course) and an older unnamed daughter (Rimfire and Primer's mother). As to their father(s?) or a husband, nothing is known. It's certainly within the realm of possibility that she was a single mother, especially given Modo's fixation on her (then again, all three mice mention their mothers at some point in the series, but never their fathers). Whatever the case, she did a bang-up job with them, given Modo's firm (and sometimes dangerously unchangeable) chivalric behavior, gentleness, and sweetly old-fashioned charm (and Rimfire's, too, if we can extrapolate that her influence extended into her daughter's parenting style).

But Momma wasn’t exactly your typical "soccer Mom" (or whatever it is that young Martian mice play in the absence of soccer). While some of her sayings sound like those the average mother might dispense ("Eat, eat! You're a growing mouse!"; "A gentleman doesn’t speak poorly of a lady"), most of it is motorcycle-related ("A mouse’s best friend is his bike"; “Courtesy is the rule of the road”), strongly suggesting that Modo's momma was a Biker Mouse herself in her youth (and most likely beyond^^). We can safely assume she was quite a hellraiser: one piece of advice to her son, quoted by Modo after the mice are arrested by the Chicago PD, is, "Assume the position" possibly mother-son road trips here.

What became of Momma during the Plutarkian War is unknown. Her encouragement helped Modo and his bros to overcome the psychological shock of their injuries and strong self-doubt during the Tug Transformer incident, but nothing’s known of her beyond that. She strikes me as a survivor, though, so she’s probably still kicking around Mars somewhere. Who knows? She might’ve even started a geriatric version of the Freedom Fighters.

Murdock, Mudfish

Pendragon, King Arthur

King Arthur was a minor recurring character, featured in the Biker Knights of the Round Table two-parter in the 3rd season of the 1993–1996 animated television series Biker Mice from Mars. King Arthur was featured in the Biker Knights of the Round Table two-parter was based on the character of King Arthur and the Knignts of the Round Table of Arthurian myth.

Parmesana, Romana

Provoloni, Perry

A Plutarkian lawyer, considered foul smelling even by Plutarkian standards. All Plutarkian lawyers are notable for this, but Provoloni is a particularly notorious case, something which he puts down to his great success. His specialities lie in false accusations and financial double-dealing, and he is not above blackmail and extortion. Noted for his flashy, melodramatic style, Provoloni’s holier-than-thou attitude has resulting in a hostile relationship with Limburger, but the pair are prepared to work together towards a common aim.

For most Americans, nothing leaves a worse taste in your mouth than a snooty lawyer. That's true in many countries, and also on Plutark. Perry Provoloni is one, probably the best on his planet, and bearer of two other unique distinctions: one, he is quite possibly the thinnest adult male Plutarkian on the entire planet (discounting Hacka Loogey, who frequently pigs out on hot dogs and gains hundreds of pounds), and two, he just might be the smelliest. All Plutarkian lawyers are known throughout the galaxy for their particularly hideous stench, even to other Plutarkians. But Provoloni's reek just might be the vilest of the vile. He attributes it to his astounding success.

Provoloni specializes in the seedier side of law, including getting a false conviction against the Biker Mice and taking care of "Swiss Cheese Accounts" for some of his richer patrons (including Camembert). Provoloni uses a showboating style of lawyering, calling for lots of dramatics and tactics that overwhelm the defense. He's always willing to cut a deal, whether it's to save his own skin or just to make a buck, and isn't above blackmail and extortion (like I said, he's a lawyer). His holier than thou attitude with Limburger has made the two of them enemies, though enemies who are willing to work together if it is mutually beneficial.

Guinevere, Queen

Queen Guinevere was a minor recurring character, featured in the Biker Knights of the Round Table two-parter in the 3rd season of the 1993–1996 animated television series Biker Mice from Mars. Queen Guinevere was featured in the Biker Knights of the Round Table two-parter was based on the character of Queen Guinevere of Arthurian myth.

Razer

Razer is a minor character who appears in the new 2006 series of Biker Mice from Mars. Razer is a Tudesian Rabbit with an attitude, and, like all Tudesian Rabbits, he is an accomplished mechanic.

When he overheard that the Catatonians had no intention of honoring and fulfilling their part of a bargin made between the cats and rabbits, Razar brought "Pops", the head Tudesian Rabbit mechanic up to speed to what he had overheard. He was then sent to seek out the Biker Mice from Mars to help them overthrow the Catatonians and hyjack their spaceship back to Earth.

Razer is a Tudesian Rabbit with an attitude, and will dish out a "Rabbit Punch" onto anyone whom so-ever calls him a "Bunnie".

Scabbard

Perhaps the nearest thing the series has come to an actual mouse villain, but only in the sense that Scabbard was a sergeant in the Martian Army, and consequently the rival and opponent of the rebel Freedom Fighters.

Bound by a rigid code of discipline and obedience, he refused to admit that Mars had been sold out by its government to the Plutarkians, and that the Army was being deliberately sent to the wrong places or into ambushes.

When the Army did come into contact with the enemy, Scabbard insisted his troops maintained traditional tactics of concentrating his troops together in blocks in the open, and thus leaving them vulnerable to enemy fire, especially from artillery.

Eventually he was persuaded of the justice of the Freedom Fighter cause, and joined sides with them.

Technically, Scabbard wasn't actually a Freedom Fighter, at least, not during the episodes we see him in. During that time, he was Army. But since only two members of the Martian Army were ever named (Scabbard himself and Carbine), I couldn't see the sense in creating a whole other section just for them. Therefore, his inclusion (and anyway, like I said, the odds are good that he ended up there, so it all works out in the end).

Like Harley, Sgt. Scabbard is one of those characters in Biker Mice from Mars who appeared only during the Once Upon a Time On Mars arc. He was the head of a large number of Martian Army troops, including Carbine. Despite Scabbard's obvious bravery, he and his troops were nevertheless useless against the Plutarkians. For one, he refused to fight in anything but the "old-fashioned Army way", which bears at least a passing resemblance to the one used by British troops during the American revolution.

To wit: his men got blown away because they stood out in the open and let themselves get fired on (not exactly a tactical genius, is he?). As if that weren't bad enough, Scabbard was unable to see that the Martian government was purposely directing him and his troops away from pockets of Plutarkian activity (the government being in the fish-faces' pockets). Even when it's pointed out that an ordered bombing mission would take no toll on the Plutarkians (who had left the area months ago), he simply replies, "Orders are orders".

As you might expect, Scabbard's hard-headedness often leads him into conflict with the free-wheeling Freedom Fighters, in particular their leader, Stoker. The two nearly come to blows during "Once Upon a Time On Mars Part One," and one might guess that they've done so on many such occasions. Scabbard accuses Stoker of interfering in Army affairs, and Stoker snipes that Mars is lucky that there are Freedom Fighters to deal with the threats that the Army won't.

In the end, it took Carbine's defection to the Freedom Fighters to make him Scabbard see the light. Although, as said above, he's a by-the-book mouse, Scabbard quickly adjusted to the spontaneous fighting style of the Freedom Fighters when he and his mice joined them (presumably; there's never a scene in which they formally join, so it's possible that they only fought with them for the duration of the battle. However, it looks to me like they probably joined for keeps). Scabbard's presence has probably had something to do with the increased militarization of the freewheeling Fighters, if not directly from his influence then through Carbine.

Van-Hamm, Rodney "Rod"

Rodney "Rod" Van-Hamm was a character who was only seen in the classic series, in Danger is Our Business in season 2. Charley had dated Rod Van-Hamm in high school, where he was voted "most likely to wimp out". Why Charley had even dated him in the first place is never touched upon--but it ended on Prom night, where Rod Van-Hamm dumped her for another girl called "Cindy Maroose", details with which Charley was unhappy with to say the least (either because she was 'dumped' on the night of a Prom or maybe because of the girl for whom Van-Hamm had dumped her for). She describes him as an "egotistical jerk" whoses really only "all show and no go" and can only see himself as a legend in his own small mind. Throttle described Van-Hamm's ego as "bulletproof".

In Danger is Our Business, Rod Van-Hamm was an actor of little actual talent. A simplistic man-child; he was nothing more that a pretty-boy who looked good for the camera. He had little in the way of brains and could not remember the simplest of his lines. Further more, Van-Hamm, despite the presence of muscles on his figure isn't much of a strongman, who needs stuntmen to do all the action in his movies--but he is so self-absorbed that he claims, for all to hear, that he does all of his own stunts. He is also very clumsy. As well as being slow-witted, Van-Hamm is exceedingly egotisical (amazingly even more-so then Vinnie) to the point of solipsism, and he is so vain that he wears a wig to cover his bald scalp.

When the Martian Biker Mice, wishing to pay Charley back for trashing the inside of her garage, apply for the job of stunt motorcyclists in Van-Hamm's new movie being shot in Chigago, it is revealed to be another of Limburger's plots to tear down the city. When the Mice survive all of Limburger's attempts to kill them off with "faulty special effects", Karbunkle augments Van-Hamm physically to take down the Biker Mice. After all three Biker Mice are unable to stand up against Van-Hamm, he was poised to finish them off. Charley makes her presence known and armed, she aims an high-tech energy bazooka, and hits Van-Hamm right on a vulnerable part of his bionic strength-augments, rendering him back to his wimpy former-self.

Weekly, Wesley "Wes"

Mayor Wes Weekly was a minor-recurring character in the old 93-96 animated series Biker Mice from Mars. Mayor Wes Weekly first appearance was in The Reeking Reign of the Head Cheese, in season 1, and was voiced by Jeff Bennett. Wesley "Wes" Weekly was the Mayor of the city of Chicago, a city official whose life was handful of times put in danger as a result of Limburger's schemes.
