Yes Man

Voiced by: Jesse Adams

Secondary Characters

These characters appear at least several times in episodes that follow each of their debut appearances. They are voiced by the principal cast, a couple in-house employees, 4Kids Entertainment's frequent talents, including Dan Green, Bella Hudson, and Wayne Grayson, as well as others. Almost all of the Season One characters appear again at the Christmas party in A Christmas Mikey. Characters from both seasons appear again in the crowd during Live LilyMu. Because the show's credits do not match up the voice actors with the characters in the list below, the people who voice each individual minor character are unknown for the most part.

Yoshi

Voiced by: Jesse Adams

The main camera man for the LilyMu series, Yoshi is a shy, blond, beer-bellied man, and though he's not important enough to be a main character, he is featured somewhere in many episodes, sometimes as a main role (such as in Battle of the Band), but mostly as an easter egg. In, A Christmas Mikey, it is said that if Mikey had never come to Tokyo, Lily would've wound up marrying Yoshi after LilyMu was canceled. He appears to live in LilyMu Towers with the other cast members. Like Yes Man, he is frequently prone to be the butt of violence, regardless of intention.

He is a pirate, as it was shown in the episode "Ship of Fools". In The Bracemaster, he was Dr. Katashi's assistant, and was a dentist, and a member of the Onis in The Oni Express. In The Wizard of Ozu, he plays the part of the Tinman, but the rest of the cast ignores him and is thus caught rusting in the rain.

Sushi Trio

Voiced By: Misc. people

Little sushi-beings that serve as scene transitions or bumpers. They dance around and make cute noises. They are sometimes accompanied by other random characters, such as a sushi chef or a sumo wrestler. They rarely appear out of bumpers, and when they do, it's for a split-second. They were once shown being eaten by Gonard. The three main sushi, as well as other types of sushi, have their first speaking role in this series in The Wizard of Ozu, playing the parts of the Munchkins.

The three main sushi beings are going to star in the Kappa Mikey spin-off mini-series, called Dancing Sushi. In this show, their names are Larry, (after Larry schwarz) Roro, and Salmon, and a female sushi named Meep was created to round out the main cast.

Socky

Voiced by: Adam Moreno

A sock puppet pop icon with a mind of its own, spokesperson for Hitoshi Beauty Cream, and rival of Lily for Tokyo Trend's Top 50 Most Beautiful list. However, he was removed from the list, after Mikey discreetly revealed that the sock had once been a "dork". He is famous for his motto "Stay Socky". Socky has become one of LilyMu's most persistent antagonists, having appeared in Mikey At The Bat, and in Mitsuki Vanishes, where he attempts to get Lily, and later, Mitsuki, to star in his new television projects. Socky's character shares resemblance with Triumph, the insult comic dog. He also has 3 female dancers that follow him around and act as his entourage, as well as a body guard who resembles Batou from Ghost in the Shell.

Ethel

Voiced By: Kether Donahue

Ethel is an old, wrinkled lady with a cane who appears at least once in every episode, sometimes with in a speaking role, but mostly as a background extra. Her name is uttered for the first time in Script Assassin, by Guano. In The Lost Pilot, she bumps into Mikey right when he's about to leave back for America, whacks him in the head with her purse, expresses that she loves LilyMu, and whacks him in the head again. In Sumo Of All Fears, she lifts a prop resembling a bus. In Tin Putt, her name is Mildred.

The Cat Burglar

Voiced by: Wayne Grayson

An unnamed bandit who steals the invisibility coat in The Fugi-Kid. Throughout the episode, he was thought to have only one arm, due to the other being covered by the coat during the Mikey-witnessed theft. Agent Yoshida has been chasing him for five years-he has stolen over 2,000 cats, plus the bank robberies he committed using the coat and framed Mikey for. Known to Mikey as "The One-Armed Man" until revealed that the coat was covering one arm ("What are you!? Some kind of TWO armed man!?"). His extreme lankiness, crazy red hair, and strange chin give him a resemblance to Cletus Kasady (AKA Carnage) from Spider-Man.

He makes a second appearance in LilyMeow, revealing that he eats the cats after he catches them and that he is also allergic to cats, developing a rash all over his body and going into fits of sneezing when he comes near one.

The Cat Burglar makes a third appearance halfway through The Masked Tanuki, where he kidnaps Mikey, Guano and Gonard as revenge for putting him in jail...twice. By now, he is no longer allergic to cats (which he explains, "I...got better. Like magic!"), and instead, treats them like his minions. He also appeared to have broken the habit of eating them.

His last appearance is in "Mikey's Memoirs", where he tries to kill Mikey for stealing an album that was originally stolen by him, and wants credit for it.

Mom and Dad

Voiced by: Dan Green and Zoe Martin

Mikey's parents. They have yet to be seen (they, like Mikey, are probably animated in an American style, since their answering machine(s) and counter top are rendered in this way), but they have been featured in the episodes The Lost Pilot, Easy Come, Easy Gonard, Lost in Transportation, The Switch, Saving Face, and La Cage Aux Mikey. Their rather offbeat answering machine messages nearly always give some sort of help - even if it isn't in the way one would expect. Mikey appears to be their only child.

Speed Racer

An older version of the famed racer. He makes a cameo appearance in the theme song as the LilyMu team's limousine driver, and in the pilot episode. Despite having the body of a middle-aged man, he has the voice of a young boy. In A Christmas Mikey, he can be seen as the hypothetical scratch card contest winner for LilyMu, in place of Mikey, yelling "I'm back!" However, this choice drops the rating for LilyMu down enough for Ozu to cancel the show.

Speed again has a speaking role in "Mikey And the Pauper", where he drives Mikey and Guano to the Filth District, and gets attacked by a gigantic squid tentacle.

Ironically, Animation Collective is the producer for the next big television revamp of the Speed Racer franchise on Nicktoons Network.

Gonard's Mother

Voiced By: Sean Schemmel

Gonard still lives with her in LilyMu Towers, or at least in the same place. In The Switch she has a woman's voice, while in The Fugi-kid, and all the succeeding episodes, she is voiced by Sean Schemmel in a falsetto voice with an Irish accent.

The Kappas

Voiced by: Evelyn Lanto, others

The kappas are water spirits who Mikey's LilyMu character is named after, who live around a river in the middle of the jungle. They talk in impish, caveman-like voices. They meet Mikey in Mikey, Kappa. They initially try to sacrifice Mikey to the snakes, but once they realise it is the hero they saw on television (curiously, while they have no access to electricity), they praise him and express their fandom. Mikey realizes his littering causes their water supply to run out, making them ill, and brings their water back.

In The Wizard of Ozu, the kappas appear again to play the role of the flying monkeys.

Dr. Takashi Katashi

Voiced by: Wayne Grayson

In "Plastic Surgeon To The Stars", he wears a generic doctor headband over his eye, much in the fashion of Kakashi Hatake from Naruto. He performs an unintentional 'pimple enlargement' on Mikey, because he had to do two operations at once (first trying to remove Mikey's pimple, but failing; and turning Yes Man into a muscular man). He did plastic surgery on Socky, to make him beautiful, information which led to Socky's downfall.

Katashi also appears to have a degree in dentistry, according to The Bracemaster. He performs a check-up on Mikey, Gonard, Lily, and Mitsuki, and reports that only Mikey has an overbite, and needs a retainer. Katashi has a dark side as well; he steals Ozu's retainer and family heirloom for its value, with plans to sell it for a green sports car.

Agent Yoshida

Voiced by: Michael Alston Baley

A Japanese government agent that bears a resemblance to Commander Amarao from FLCL, complete with eyebrows (he also wears a similar uniform to the one Naota does at the end of the anime). He arrested Mikey for a crime he did not commit. However, later on, he does arrest the real crook, with Mikey's help.

Agent Yoshida is hired by Ozu to investigate a DVD piracy ring in Back To School. However, after months on the case, he finds no suspects. With LilyMu's help, he finally arrests the students behind the crime.

Pirate Captain/King Pirate

Voiced by: Sean Schemmel

Captain of a pirate ship and five other pirates. He first appears in episode Ship of Fools when he gives Mikey a pirated video game in exchange for Gonard. Mikey manages to frighten the pirate into abandoning ship (courtesy of the Super Gonard balloon) in order to save Gonard.

In La Cage Aux Mikey, the Captain fills in for Mikey's dad after they announce their cancelled trip to Japan. It is revealed in this episode that the Pirate's last name may be Ohoulihan, as he accidentally says Mikey has done the name proud.

In Lost in Transportation, The Captain is seen as an honorary member of the Chums, the center photo of the wall. He makes an appearance in a sumo outfit in The Sumo of All Fears. In "Go Nard Hunting" he replaces Gonard's role on LilyMu.

One of his pirates bears a striking resemblance to Lucky Roux, (one of captain Red-Haired Shanks's pirates) from the anime and manga One Piece.

Masako Masako

Voiced By: Lex Woutas

Tokyo's most beloved red-carpet fashion critic in Battle of the Bands, her first appearance, and motherly talk show host in Script Assassin. She resembles Yubaba from Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away. Her voice is low enough to be voiced by a man, which is indeed the case. She appears again as a news correspondent in The Karaoke Episode: Part II.

Lex Woutas has a more prominent role in Three Delivery as the villain, Kong Li.

The Chums

A gang of outcast bikers who accept Mikey as an "honorary member" when he is convinced that the rest of the LilyMu cast are leaving him out of activities and, quite literally, vehicles, in Lost In Transportation. They are big fans of LilyMu. Mikey is most acquainted to their leader, Beef, who teaches him the Chums bear-hug. Mikey eventually becomes friends again with the cast, but the Chums keep in touch with him using a whistle whenever he needs help. The motorcycle they give him has been used in several LilyMu sequences.

Beef returns in La Cage Aux Mikey to impersonate Mikey's mom, and has his second big role in Hog Day Afternoon as the owner of a bike shop. It is in Hog Day Afternoon that Mikey finally uses the whistle they gave him, but they don't respond, since he angered Beef, and that he's not a member anymore. It turns out they were late in saving him, due to a Viking parade. Mikey is currently under temporary probation, instead of being kicked out of the Chums. In Script Assassin, he has a conversation with Guano at the bar in his cafe, during Guano's depression state.

Kenji

A local Tokyo street urchin, modeled after the character Oliver Twist, who loves the LilyMu show. He has a speaking role in Easy Come, Easy Gonard, Manic Monday, Seven LilyMu, and Mikey's Memoirs, but it's only until Mikey and the Pauper where his name is properly introduced. He has a dog named Mr. Poopers and many friends, including Mikey look-alike Jomar, and some children he likes to play with in a playground.

Mr. Stereo

Voiced by: Wayne Grayson

One of Ozu's company sponsors and best business partners in Lost In Transportation. Mr. Stereo sells stereos at bargain prices, and claims that if his stereos don't please his customers, he will do crazy things, even though he does them anyway. Those crazy stunts turn into his one running joke. He has a spoiled son named Timmy who is a huge fan of LilyMu.

Mr. Stereo appears again in Seven LilyMu to host the LilyMu live performance in the Megastore, in honor of his tenth store.

The Tatami Twins

Voiced By: Erica Schroeder

Two immensely fat little boys who are the sons of Mr. Tatami. They mistake Guano for a toy, and even throw Lily and Mitsuki into the 'Tatami Room' for 'shoplifting' (trying to save Guano). They could be a reference to the classic Mario Bros. (red and green shirts & overalls), who looked equally chubby at the time. Their heads look almost exactly the same as the Troublemaker Studios's logo. Their voices are similar to Luffy's voice from One Piece.

They make a second appearance in Manic Monday, purchasing Gonard and Guano's cursed tiki idol, in an attempt to pass on the bad luck. Unfortunately, the tiki has the opposite effect on them instead, earning them an hour-long sweep of the Megastore.

Minor Characters

These characters have major roles in one episode each, and do not appear again, save for a brief cameo.

Brozu and No Man

Voiced by: Stephen Moverly and Jesse Adams

Brozu is Ozu's older twin brother (though only by 1 second) who claims to be the Lord of the Dance. He has a very hip hop and arrogant persona and uses a large amount of street slang. He appears in the episode Big Brozu. Brozu has his own hip hop version of Yes Man named No Man, who always yells "Oh no!" (which is odd, considering Yes Man does not shout "yes" most of the time, rather he agrees with Ozu), and who does the turn tables for Brozu's songs. Since he was born one second before Ozu, he claims ownership of 51% of the company and has legal right to take over and change the LilyMu show from an action theme into a street dancing theme. However, Ozu regained control of his company after he and Mikey beat Brozu in a dancing contest.

Ori and Yori

Ori and Yori are Tokyo's hottest rock stars. They appeared in the episode Battle of the Bands where they first appeared on their own television show. They later appeared in The Clip Show when one of their songs was played during the flashback of the LilyMu gang's friends. They resemble the television show characters Ami and Yumi from Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi.

The Karaoke Genie

Voiced by: Dan Green

The green, Arabic, villainous genie is the DJ of a magical karaoke machine that Mikey uncovers in The Karaoke Episode. He puts a curse on the six principle cast members (except Yes Man), to make Mikey appreciate the value of singing.

Dadzuki

Voiced By: Dan Green

Dadzuki is Mitsuki's mustached father, and the most acclaimed kabuki actor in Japan. He has naturally blue hair and green eyes, like his daughter, and talks in a Shakespearian, dramatic voice. His mustache is also blue. In "Mitsuki Butterfly", he breaks his leg immediately before a play starts, and Mitsuki coverly covers for him instead. But he swears to her never to reveal her identity to the audience, because as Japanese tradition dictates, no woman can ever perform kabuki. When Mikey fawns over Mitsuki in her kabuki role, overprotective Dadzuki goes to great lenghts to prevent him from getting close to her. He has a sweet tooth for spare ribs.

Dadzuki has a cameo in The Karaoke Episode in the crowd during "Heart", and can be seen performing during "Bounce". He also appears briefly in Live LilyMu.

Scoop Suzuki

Editor-in-chief of a tabloid newspaper in Japan. He threatened to expose Mikey's pimple to the masses unless he could get pictures of his friends in more embarrassing situations. He bears a strong resemblance to J. Jonah Jameson. He has a cousin in America who works for an American newspaper, who is drawn in American style.

Suave Mikey

Voiced by: Michael Sinterniklaas

Suave Mikey appeared in Ship of Fools. He looks exactly like Mikey, down to the American-drawn style, with the exception of his black sunglasses and noticeably refined demeanor. Surprisingly, the suave version of Mikey has an opposite effect on Lily and Mitsuki. Lily is enamored with the Suave Mikey while Mitsuki thinks he's a jerk.

Mr. Tatami

Voiced by: Lex Woutas

Former owner of Tatami Megastore, a carrier of LilyMu merchandise, and the Tatami Room. Father of the Tatami Twins. Mikey owes him 20 million yen, until Ozu buys the Megastore from him, making him an employee of Ozu.

Lawrence Von Martenhouse

Voiced By: Marc Thompson

An American actor (also drawn in an American style, like Mikey). He played Captain Impressive on American TV several years back, and became Mikey's childhood hero. He puts on a rather embarrassing Dum-Dum Show at the Tatami Megastore, the result of which 'inspires' Mikey to become a bad boy to avoid suffering a similar fate. Von Martenhouse eventually gets to be Captain Impressive one last time, trying to stop a riot that Mikey started. He is currently on The Dum-Dum Hour.

Kello

Voiced by: Zoe Martin

A small kitten that Mikey finds and adopts in order to get attention for himself in LilyMeow. Kello ends up stealing the spotlight from the entire LilyMu cast due to his "cuteness". After failing to squash the LilyMu cast for proving more popular than him, he was posted on a Teletubbies-like TV show where he is thrown up in the air and sprayed with water. He is a parody of Hello Kitty. In later episodes, he shows up as an anonymous kitten.

Dr. Igor

Voiced by: Marc Diraison

Appearing in Big Trouble In Little Tokyo, Dr. Igor is a mad scientist who lives on in the 'secret floor' (the 13th) of LilyMu Towers, and the only way to get there is by revealing the secret panel behind all the other buttons in the elevator. He claims to have created all the monsters in the old monster movies in the past, and invented ways of making them huge. Now, he makes a hobby out of shrinking monsters so they become tiny. His face bears a strong resemblance to Vash the Stampede from Trigun. He is also clearly a parody of Vash the Stampede based on his height of at least 8 feet, his similar coat and the frames of his glasses.

He fled when Ozu told him he owed forty years worth of unpaid rent.

Forbes

Voiced By: Seth Herzog

Dr. Igor's "son" and assistant. He resembles a demon with a fox's face, bat's ears and wings, chicken's feet, scaly dinosaur arms (he claims he has more than one pair of arms), goat's horns and a tail in contrast to Dr. Igor's human appearance (either his mother looked like this, he was adopted, he was created by Igor, or Dr. Igor altered him from his original form). He is very charismatic, and is the only other character besides Mikey and Brozu known to come on to Lily and Mitsuki without hesitation. He takes great pride in designing the monsters' butts.

Miko and Kai

Two LilyMu fanatics who welcome Mikey into their SuperFans Club in With Fans Like These. They are complete nerds, down to the pimples, thick lisps, glasses, LilyMu memorabilia, and awkward behavior. Besides Mikey, it turns out their club only consists of the two of them, and is held in Miko's mother's basement. They hound Mikey to the point of being a nuisance, and Mikey gets rid of them with the help of Mitsuki. They are afraid of sunlight in their first scene, but don't seem to mind it through the rest of the episode.

Agent F

Only seen inside the disguise of a U.S. post box, Agent F pleads with Mitsuki to return to her old job as a secret agent in La Femme Mitsuki. Although slightly bumbling and limited as to what he is able to do from being stuck inside the mailbox, he was once her partner, and will stop at nothing to get her back. He writes poems on his spare time, which he tries to keep private.

Harmony Sunshine

An earthie (hippie) who Gonard meets and befriends in La Femme Mistuki. He presents himself as a "professional dreamer", and loves playing the bongos and the guitar. He inspires Gonard to become an earthie himself, but Lily, sick of Gonard's and Harmony's antics, has Ozu inspire them to change their ways, turning Harmony into a conservative business career man.

Dragon

A gigantic, red, Japanese dragon in The Man Who Would Be Mikey. He has the personality of a cranky, old, Jewish man, and wears spectacles and carries a cane. He awakes from his thousand-year nap underground once he discovers one of his spikes was stolen by Mikey, and wants to eat him for revenge.

Lawrence

Voiced By: Robert Riddell

Lawrence is Mikey's guardian angel from A Christmas Mikey, who is a parody on Clarence from It's a Wonderful Life. As opposed to the aged Clarence, Lawrence is drawn in the style of a young bishōnen, with blond hair, blue eyes, and a scarf. He aids Mikey into learning what things would've been like if he had never won the scratch-card contest in the first place. His own goal is to get rid of the standard, issued wings that all angels have, and earn large, golden ones with triple pumping action. He is the last character to be seen at the end of Season One, winking at the audience, and flying, with his new wings, into the moonlight.

Bike

Voiced By: Dan Green

In Hog Day Afternoon, Mikey upgrades his motorbike, but takes it upon himself to "borrow" a defective microchip from a store, which brings the bike to life. As a character, it is animated in 3D. It can see out of the two front headlights. Temperamental and monstrous, it has the urge to destroy Mikey.

Ninjaman McFranklin

Sneaky ninja owner of a restaurant chain called Ninjaman McFranklin's House of Chicken and Ninjas. He resembles Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken, only he has a black mask over his eyes. In Mikey's Place he has the power to hypnotize Gonard into preparing dishes for him all with no breaks.

Evan and Carl

Two nerdy, anti-social Mount Lebaniku high school students who Mikey befriends, after failing to fit into any of the other clics, in Back To School. Evan is fat, wears thick glasses, and talks in a lisp. Carl is short, skinny, with a pointy, blond hair style. Both like to spend their lunch periods by themselves, playing fantasy RPGs, and dreaming about being popular. When Mikey joins them, he discovers that they're great listeners and help any way they can.

Reggie

Voiced By: Evelyn Lanto

Reggie is a green, baby jungle crow who gets separated from its family in Like Ozu, Like Son. Taken by its cuteness, Gonard and Guano vow to raise and look after it until it can learn to fly so it can find its family again- Reggie is the name they give him. The other jungle crows think they are mistreating it, until Reggie flies in front of his new friends in defense, and thanks them by appearing on LilyMu as a guest.

The Phantom of the Soundstage

Voiced by: Sean Schemmel

The Phantom of the Soundstage shares his name with the episode he appears in. He used to be one of the original members of LilyMu. Today, he is Ozu's soundstage janitor by day, but off-work, he sports an outfit very much like the Phantom from The Phantom of the Opera, except his mask is modeled after that of a Japanese oni. He sings very badly, and talks in an exaggerated impersonation of Christopher Walken. His sole purpose as the Phantom is to punish anyone who dare pulls a prank, ever since he himself was pranked by a new LilyMu cast member from Canada, who wrote the word "fart" on his forehead with permanent marker. He convinces Lily to team up with him and take revenge on Mikey with a huge prank, but he is eventually arrested "for assault of a permanent marker, and general craziness".

Riku and Shino

Two poor children from Seven LilyMu. Riku, the younger brother, admires the LilyMu team to the point where he believes they are real superheroes, and convinces them to save their playground from being demolished. Shino, the older and more mature sister, looks after him when they are away from their parents.

Squiddy

A giant, pink squid that Mikey befriends in Free Squiddy. He talks in high-pitched squeaks. According to Mikey, they have a lot in common, as they're both handsome, and "both blend into their surroundings to avoid predators". He is also very talented.

Samoa

A spooky ghoul girl who vowed revenge on all mankind after she flushed herself down the toilet in LilyBoo. She promised to lay a curse on anyone who watches a mysterious cursed DVD, scaring them with phone calls and ultamitely turing them into nougat. She places a curse on the LilyMu gang, but they end the curse for the last time once they find her gobstopper.She appears to be very close friends with Gonard.

Reiko

A girl who auditioned for a part on LilyMu but was replaced by Mitsuki. She began to plan revenge against her in Mitsuki Vanishes, which involved using her superior acting abilities to make it seem like she was a harmless little girl who would never do such a thing.

Richie McMillions III

Voiced By: Sean Schemmel

In Tin Putt, Richie is the pompus owner of the exclusive miniature golf country club Mini Pines. Richie is known to enjoy a friendly game of mini-golf with Ozu from time to time. It's all in good fun, except for the fact that he cheats, and talks about cheating, even when he is trying to hide it. For some reason, he can't resist of talking about his cheating. On the other hand, if he doesn't cheat, he cannot play miniature golf to save his life.

Gary the Gopher

A tough, French-accented, patriotic gopher that lives below Mini Pines in Tin Putt. He enlists Guano in his efforts to free all [] from the groundskeeper's tyranny once and for all.

Jomar

Another street pauper who is a direct look-alike of Mikey, save for being in anime form, and wears a torn-up version of Mikey's outfit with a scarf. After Mikey gets tired of his acting career in Mikey and the Pauper, Jomar trades places with him. He guest stars on LilyMu alongside Mikey at the end of the episode.
