This is a page of Characters from the Nickelodeon TV Series Invader ZIM. There are literally dozens of characters that appear in episodes and also supposed to. NOTE:This list also includes Cancelled episode Characters because even though they never appeared they are still noteworthy.
The Almighty Tallest Edit
The Irken Empire has a hierarchal class structure, where shorter individuals are both figuratively and literally looked down upon. The tallest Irken alive takes command of the Empire as "the Tallest", but since Red and Purple, the two current Tallest, are the exact same height, they share equal (and nigh-supreme) power.
While the Tallest function mainly as figureheads, doing little to organize the society (preferring to lounge around and eat snacks), they do hold absolute power over the populace. They travel around to observe and supervise Operation Impending Doom II in the Massive, the largest and most powerful ship in the Irken Armada. They appear to mostly use their unlimited powers of state to amuse themselves- sending loyal Irken soldiers to painful deaths ("Battle of the Planets"), forcing others weaker than themselves to obey their random whims ("Hobo 13") and starving their own command crew ("Backseat Drivers"). Red is often considered to actually have a slight focus on ruling the Irken race, as is usually seen as being more intelligent than Purple. This is seen in the episode Backseat Drivers, where, while Purple floats around screaming and eating doughnuts, Red finds out that Zim is controlling the ship via the power core, and switches it with the Resisty's core, thus saving the Massive from hitting Earth. They love to cause other Irkens pain ("Walk for your Life") and, Purple especially, puppets (also "Walk for Your Life).
The voice of Almighty Tallest Purple was done by Kevin McDonald, best known for his participation in the Canadian sketch comedy group Kids in the Hall and as Pastor Dave in "That 70's show". Almighty Tallest Red was voiced by Wally Wingert.
Zim's foreman during his exile at Foodcourtia for ruining Operation Impending Doom 1. When Zim escaped through the back door, Sizz-Lorr was trapped without help (with the possible exception of Gashloog) during the first Great Foodening in which people ate so much the gravity was too strong to escape for 20 years (which a time warp managed to make the time period no more than a few years for the rest of the universe, according to Sizz-Lorr. Comic laziness, according to Jhonen.). When he captured Zim on Earth and returned to Foodcourtia, Zim managed to escape before the second Foodening trapping Sizz-Lorr for another 20 years. Jhonen does point out the invader symbols on his arms was a mistake, seeing as he never was an invader. His name is a reference to the popular Sizzler chain of restaurants. Sizz-Lor was voiced by Jim Wise
Main:Tak (Invader Zim)
Tak, another Irken with a serious grudge against Zim appears on Earth in "Tak: The Hideous New Girl". Originally assigned to janitorial duty, she comes to Earth to steal Zim's mission and impress the Tallest, hoping to achieve Invader status in this way. On Earth, she shows herself far separate from the other Irkens, at least in the area of disguise, hers being perfect in sharp contrast to the camoflauge skills of most other Irkens. ("Planet Jackers" shows another instance of bad Irken camoflauge) She also owns a SIR unit named Mimi, who wears a cat disguise. She was set to come back as a big villain in "Top of the Line". Tak is voiced by Olivia D'Abo.
Invader Skoodge Edit
Invader Skoodge was shown in the first episode as being the shortest, fattest, ugliest Invader (although it is shown a few episodes that Zim is even shorter). Since the Irken culture idolizes height, little Skoodge was at an instant disadvantage. In scorn of his stature, the Tallest sent him to invade Planet Blorch, home of the Slaughtering Rat People, where he was expected to die horribly.
However, Skoodge is a highly skilled Invader. He's the first Invader of Impending Doom Two to successfully subjugate his assigned planet. The Nickelodeon e-card for Skoodge says he survived on Blorch by eating really nasty things.
On the arrival of the Irken Armada to Blorch to proclaim their first successful Invasion, The Tallest refused to make short Skoodge their poster-boy for galactic conquest. Instead, declaring a 'new tradition' on the spot, they instead fired him out of a cannon into space. A taller Irken civilian, randomly selected by Tallest Purple, was dubbed Invader Skoodge, and paraded in front of the cameras. Also when Zim was sent to a planet for military training, (or so he thought) Skoodge was there as well and used by Zim to get through the trials.
Skoodge and Zim were smeeted (born) in the same generation of Irkens, (The Trial) and their first (and most subsequent) adventures together usually lead to Skoodge suffering horrible pain. Zim believes Skoodge to be very gullible. Skoodge was originally slated to have a larger role in season two: he was to be hiding from The Tallest in Zim's basement and was later to be in many future episodes such as "Day of da Spookies." For some odd reason, he can live without a PAK to support his life and seems to be able to think without a brain.
Invader Skoodge was voiced by Ted Raimi.
Invader Tenn Edit
Tenn was assigned to the planet Meekrob, home of a race of beings of pure energy and sworn enemies of Irken Empire. Due to Smikka Smikka Smoodoo's 'revolution' on the Conveyor Belt Planet, Tenn received a package full of malfunctioning SIR units instead of the MegaDoomer she was supposed to get. They destroyed the large base she had built on the planet. In the cancelled season 2 finale, Tenn would've gotten discovered by the Meekrob and held prisoner. Invader Tenn was voiced by Kerri Kenney.
Table Headed Service Drone Bob Edit
An extremely short Irken service drone, Bob has a table strapped to his head and he walks around serving drinks. The Tallest force him to bet 6 hundred thousand monies that Zim will succeed in his training on Hobo 13, despite the fact that he only makes 5 monies every 2 years. He is ecstatic when Zim completes his training successfully, but the Tallest end up sending him on a one way trip to the sun along with Zim.
He is voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.
Invader Slacks Edit
Slacks was assigned to planet Boodie Nen, home of the large nostril people. He was seen only in Walk for Your Lives during Probing Day, The Tallest made him perform a puppet show for them. He was hit with mallets for not doing so, though he had put on a Puppet show in the next Transmission.
He was voiced by Fred Tatasciore.
Invader Flobee Edit
Invader Flobee was assigned to a rock planet whose name is not known. When Zim spied on Flobee through his telescope to check his progress, Flobee was being hailed as the leader of the planet by the rock creatures that lived there. Flobee wore a horrible disguise, with rocks strapped to his body, but it still worked.
Invader Gootch Edit
Gooch can be seen waiting in line on Devastis in Tak: The Hideous New Girl, presumably to take the Invader test. It seems likely that he passed.
Technicians and Communications Officers Edit
Technicians and Communications Officers manage equipment for the Empire. Teams of technicians serve onboard vehicles to keep them running, such as Frontline Battle Mechs and The Massive. They appear in The Nightmare Begins, Invasion of the Idiot Dog Brain, Megadoomer, Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars and The Most Horrible X-mas Ever. They have been voiced by Michael McDonald and Fred Tatasciore.
Invader Grapa Edit
Grapa is one of the few PAKless Irkens. He's among the planetary conversion team at planet Blorch in Backseet Drivers from Beyond the Stars and was randomley chosen by Almighty Tallest Purple to replace Skoodge when Almighty Tallest Red launched Skoodge into space through a canon because he was too short and to ugly to become famous for being the first sucessful invader in Operaton Impending Doom 2. Grapa loved the attention he was getting from the Irken media even though he didn't actually do anything. He is one of the tallest Irken invaders, though not taller than Invader Sneakyonfoota.
Invader Kim Edit
Invader Kim was seen in the episode The Nightmare Begins. He is one of the only two Irkens who have a human name. Nothing else is known about him.
Invader Larb Edit
Larb was almost sent to planet Blorch, home of the slaughtering rat people, but since his height increased, The Tallest changed his assignment to Vort, home of the Universe's most comfortable couch and Blorch was given to Invader Skoodge. Larb is seen sitting on the couch on Probing Day in Walk for Your Lives. We have to assume that Larb was successful since in Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars Dib reads about Vort and it mentions the planet has been conquered by Larb. He was voiced by Andy Berman.
Invader Lardnar Edit
Lardnar can be seen arriving on Conventia right before the Great Assigning starts. He must've been running a bit late... Invader Lardnar should not be confused with Captain Lard Nar, the Vortian who lead the Resisty.
Invader Skutch Edit
Invader Skutch was assigned to a planet whose name is not known. When Zim spied on Skutch through his telescope to check his progress, Skutch was seen laughing among the flames of a burning structure.
Invader Sneakyonfoota Edit
Gashloog works alongside Zim at Shloogorgh's on Foodcourtia. While Zim is there as a slave, Gashloog is a legitimate employee. He was voiced by Paul Greenberg.
Invader Spleen Edit
Spleen impressed the Tallest with his gargantuan head. He has a battlescar over his right eye.
Invader Stink Edit
Invader Stink was assigned to a planet whose name is not known. Zim used his high powered telescope to spy on Stink, and caught him taking a breather on top of an alien structure as the rest of the city burned down. Stink is later seen among the Planetary Conversion Team above Blorch, probably taking a break to see the first victory in Operation Impending Doom II. He gasps along with the crowd when it is revealed that Skoodge was the conqueror.
Invader Tim Edit
Invader Zee Edit
Invader Zee appears to be the only female invader chosen to participate in Operation Impending Doom II. She can be seen among the other invaders at The Great Assigning, and then later standing behind Zim in the line to get a SIR unit.
Tallest Miyuki Edit
The earliest known Almighty Tallest, Miyuki is also the only known female leader of the Irken Empire. It was during her reign that the Massive was designed. While on Research Station 9 on planet Vort, Miyuki personally checked up on what new technological developments were underway. Zim, who was a scientist at the time, accidentally gets his infinite absorbing blob creation too close to an infinite energy producing thingy. The blob eats it and grows out of control. It then eats Miyuki and leaves a trail of destruction. She was to be shown in the episode The Trial.
Tallest Spork Edit
The Almighty Tallest who reigned between Miyuki and Red/Purple, Tallest Spork's time spent as Almighty Tallest was extremely short. He gave a speech to the Invaders in training and then was eaten by Zim's infinite energy absorbing blob. Zim later used an inflatable model of Spork to try and escape his Existance Evaluation Trial. He was to be shown in the episode The Trial.
Invader Alexovich Edit
He is named after Aaron Alexovich the characer designer on the show. Is seen at the Planetary Conversion team at Blorch in Battle of the Planets.
Invader Dooky Edit
The only known Invader with Brown Eyes (other than the Advisor to the Tallests). Is seen at the Planetary Conversion team at Blorch in Battle of the Planets and GIR offered him a Balloon in Zim's hologram helmet in Door to Door.
Invader El Edit
Is seen gathering at The Great Assigning. Also is at the Almighty Tallest's gathering to watch Zim train on Hobo 13, Is seen at the Planetary Conversion team at Blorch in Battle of the Planets. No information is known about her.
Invader Groot Edit
Is seen gathering at The Great Assigning and at the Planetary Conversion team at Blorch in Battle of the Planets. He can also be seen in the Original version of Door to Door with Invader Slant watching The Massive run into a Building. He was also pummeled by The Tallests in the Cancelled 2 part Season 2 Finale. No information is known about him.
Invader Koot Edit
Invader Krunk Edit
Is seen gathering at The Great Assigning in The Frycook What Came from All That Space being treated to Nacho's.
Invader Pesto Edit
Can be seen on Devastis in Tak: The Hideous New Girl. He was walking near where Zim had destroyed the Candy Machine (and Tak's chances of becoming an Invader) he looked at the explosion.
Invader Sklud Edit
Invader Skoo Edit
Is seen at the Planetary Conversion team at Blorch in Battle of the Planets. Is seen clapping doubtfully about Skoodge.
Invader Sploodge Edit
Is seen gathering at The Great Assigning. Is also one of The Invaders in Zim's hologram helmet in Door to Door.
Invader Slant Edit
Invader Slant can be seen in the Original Door to Door scene along with Invader Groot as the Massive plowed into a Building in New York.
Conventia Announcer Edit
It is not known whether or not the Conventia Announcer is an Irken. He does have the green skin and teeth, but many of the alien species in Invader ZIM have similar traits to the Irkens. This entry only applies if the Conventia Announcer is indeed an Irken.
Irken announcers are able to transmit their messages through a legion of hover screens. They are often used during large events to give instructions to the masses. The Conventia Announcer's different clothes and apparent tall height might be explained if he was a distinguished Irken given the privilege to announce at such an important event as the Great Assigning. However, if he is Irken, he seems as tall as Red and Purple, so it's a wonder why he isn't Tallest. Perhaps he was slightly shorter than the Red and Purple. He was voiced by Brad Abbrell and later Adam Baldwin.
Rarl Kove Edit
The Almighty Tallest have their own personal assistants. They inform The Tallest on any important information that might come up. They presumably serve as a sort of council to the Tallest. They also have their Paks on their chests instead of on their backs. His name is an obvious reference to Karl Rove.
Control Brains Edit
Control Brains are special Irkens bred for decision making. They are designated to certain areas, such as a planet, and they do the major decision making for that area. Control Brains are comprised of the consciousness of all Irken Ancestors. Control Brains also have the ability to access the Memory Drives in Irken Paks, which comes in handy when making decisions relating to specific Irkens.
The Control Brains who judged Zim on planet Judgmentia in the cancelled episode The Trial have a much more sinister design. They were driven insane by Zim's memories. They were voiced by Adam Baldwin.
The Vortians are a highly intelligent race of alien scientists existing in the Invader Zim universe. They are gray-hued and have hocks on their legs (resembling the hind legs of horses, goats, dogs, etc.), which lack "feet". They also have curled "horns" (can be seen moving in some instances as if they were flesh-like) on the top of their heads. They closely resemble a species of aliens in Jhonen Vasquez's other works. The Vortians were once allies of the Irken Empire, until their enslavement, when they were forced into service after being conquered by Invader Larb. The Vortians' most famous inventions include the Santa Suit substance, Minimoose, the Massive, the Universe's Most Comfortable Couch and the MegaDoomer Combat Stealth Mech. Although the vehicles and weaponry that the Vortian design for the Irken Empire are undoubtedly powerful, they are also subtly and possibly purposely flawed. Take, for example, the Vortian-designed MegaDoomer stealth system which, while making the machine invisible, leaves the pilot for all to see, (Zim:Oh, That is STUPID!) an obvious drawback that makes it useless (although it is notable that the MegaDoomer probably does not need the cloaking device, considering its strength and the incredibly loud stomping sound it makes whenever it walks).
Lard Nar Edit
Leader of the resistance against the Irken empire, he and Dib are the only viable opposition to the Irken empire. Appearing only in the season two premier, Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars, he and The Resisty were scheduled to appear in the unnamed season two finale. His primary concern is to keep The Resisty alive and fed before attempting a coup on the Irken Empire. He was the captain of the last Vortian ship (the others destroyed by Irkens), until it entered "Shrinky Self-Destruct" mode, ejecting all crew members and detonating a significantly smaller ship.
In the episode, after over-hearing the Tallests exclaim their weapons were deactivated, providing an opportunity to destroy the Massive, Lard Nar commands "Get those snacks!" even though they could theoretically destroy the entire ship. This seems unlikely however, since the Massive flies through several asteroids and even the outer layer of a star, and the Resisty laser is only powerful enough to shake the Massive and write "Resisty Rocks" on its hull (though it may have been set at a low setting to taunt the Irkens since they are so unorganized).
Lard Nar is voiced By Fred Tatasciore.
Prisoner 777 Edit
A prisoner of the Irken empire held on his home planet after it had been converted into a military prison by the Irken empire. The prisoners are still employed (against their will) to design weaponry, ships and various other devices for the Irkens. Zim uses Prisoner 777 as a means for gaining the materials he cannot gain through usual means, such as the schematics for the Massive, the Vortian weaponry to build Minimoose and presumably the Vortian liquid substance used for the Santa suit. Prisoner 777 has a pinkish coloured skin.
The number "777" is also the number of Johnny's run-down house in Jhonen Vasquez's comic series, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac.
Prisoner 777 is voiced by Wally Wingert.
The Nhar-Gh'ok Edit
Hailing from a planet of the same name, the proud and fierce Nhar-Gh'ok have a strong military. Zim encounters Sergeant Shnooky and his unit, who had been stranded on Earth for 7 years. The Nhar-Gh'ok resemble Earth babies, even in their outfits. Once they get aggressive, their eyes become pupil-less. The Nhar-Gh'ok can spew acid from their mouths, but their most amazing ability is the way they are able to meld together into one horrible being known as Giganto-Baby. The Nhar-Gh'oks Zim encountered are still stranded, now turned dumb due to Zim's use of the power amplifier to project GIR's stupidity.
Shnooky is a leader of the Nhar-Gh'ok. He was stranded on Earth when the Nhar-Gh'ok mother ship accidentally beamed aboard human babies when the Nhar-Gh'ok soldiers were ready to return from their information gathering mission. Shnooky was forced to take the identity of Noogums, a human baby who was beamed aboard the mother ship. Seven years later, Zim became Shnooky's neighbor. Shnooky witnessed Zim without his disguise and led the Nhar-Gh'ok soldiers into Zim's base with the intension of taking Zim's voot cruiser. Currently, Shnooky is now as stupid as a human baby because Zim used a power amplifier to send waves of stupidness from GIR into the Nhar-Gh'oks.
He is voiced by Phil LaMarr
Private Fooby Edit
Private Fooby is one of the Nhar-Gh'oks who took part on the information gathering mission on Earth. He wears a bunny suit, even before he was forced to take the identity of a baby. He was the Nhar-Gh'ok who discovered the human maternity ward in the hospital, leading the Nhar-Gh'oks to believe the humans were holding Nhar-Gh'oks hostage. When hospital staff nearly discovered the Nhar-Gh'oks, he hailed the mother ship but gave the wrong coordinates. They beamed up the babies in the maternity ward instead. He was voiced by David Herman.
Once a Nhar-Gh'ok soldier, Sting is now just a stupid baby who will never age. He is seen with Mama in Chicky Licky, crying when Dib mentions Chickenfoot. Mama shuts him up by shoving a chicken leg in his mouth.
Originally Tak's invasion ship, after Dib erased Tak's personality from it, he downloaded his own personality into it. Unfortunately, this download worked too well and the ship actually believed it was Dib and that the real Dib was an imposter. After transforming itself into a robotic version of Dib, the ship tried to live Dib's life, only to be taken control of by Zim.
After being used to capture Dib by Zim, the ship managed to reclaim control of itself and, after realizing how horrible Dib's life was, started the painfully slow process of wiping it's own mind. Dibship was voiced by Andy Berman.
Mortos Der Soulstealer Edit
A demon-like being, Mortos Der Soulstealer appears in every one thousand years on Earth when the moon alines with "jakunga". In the episode "Mortos Der Soulstealer", Dib attempts to utilize Mortos to steal Zim's soul, unfortunately, Mortos is extremely lazy and a mooch, refusing to do anything until his "power levels" are up.
Eventually, Mortos returns to "the place beneath the overworld" after mistakingly granting the wish of a nearby bystander for ice cream instead of Dib's wish to steal Zim's soul. Mortos was voiced by Wally Wingert.
Ms. Bitters Edit
Teacher of Dib and Zim's class. Devoid of any compassionate emotion, she is a tall, slender aged woman of unknown origin. Directly pulled from Vasquez's earlier comic book series Squee! (where she was Todd's teacher), she apparently possesses eerie powers, including the ability to materialize out of shadows, and control them to surround a victim ("Parent Teacher Night"), float through the air, and adopt snake-like features. Ms. Bitters is not human, but her actual identity and form is unknown, but she is not an Irken. Ms. Bitters is voiced by Lucille Bliss.
Sergeant Hobo 678 Edit
The being in charge of the Hobo 13 military training facility. In "Hobo 13" Zim and Skoodge are both sent by The Tallest on what the Tallest are hoping is another ensured death mission. However Zim (Whom the Sergeant despises due to his complete lack of leadership skills and willingness to recklessly sacrifice his teammates) manages to complete the trials and defeat Sergeant Hobo 678 at the expense of all his teammates. Sergeant Hobo 678 is supposedly eaten by and monster and appears to take Invader Skoodge with him (Hobo 13).
Sergeant Hobo 678 is voiced by R. Lee Ermey
Scary Monkey (Sometimes called Angry Monkey) Edit
A minor character who is shown throughout the series, mostly as the focus of the "Scary Monkey Show" (which GIR adores, and is the most seen program in the show), but shown in person during a few episodes such as "FBI Warning of Doom", where he is in Sgt. Slab Rankle's jail for unknown reasons.
Nothing else is known about the Scary Monkey, except that Zim seems to have something against "that horrible monkey". But Gir sure doesn't. He'll watch it whenever he can.
Peepi (also called Mr. Boodles) Edit
Peepi is the hamster-class skool pet brought in by Ms. Bitters to prepare the children for a life in the nightmarish corporate system. Zim recognizes how his cuteness effects the other students and decides to use this in a plot for world domination. He hooks up a throbbing alien device to transform the hamster into a giant beast. Zim attaches alien technology to the animal to transform it into its final monstrous form. It escapes into the city where it goes to a nuclear power plant and becomes Ultra-Peepi. Ultra-Peepi's arsenal includes atomic breath, a projectile metal foot, and unbearable cuteness. The hamster doesn't respond to Zim's commands, so he is forced to combat it when it gets too close to his base. Zim sets up a trap, luring it into a carnival by dangling a hotdog stand in front of it. He then uses alien devices to tangle up Ultra-Peepi and launch him into space. He soon crashes back down to Earth, however.
It is noted at the end of Hamstergeddon that no one was hurt however according to Jhonen Vasquez "Ultra Peepi" had killed about 70 people. Also Peepi's original name was Mr. Boodles in the script, but was changed into the more humorous "Peepi" for the cartoon, Peepi's vocal effects were provided by Jhonen Vasquez and Dee Bradley Baker.
A pig-like entity inhabiting an alternate dimension; the Shadowhog was summoned by Dib in "Gaz, Taster of Pork" to grant Gaz "superpowers"; Dib had planned on testing the spell on Gaz to see if it worked before using it on himself.
Later in the episode, Dib and Gaz travel to the Shadowhog's realm in order to reverse the spell on Gaz, which had made it so all she could taste was pork. The Shadowhog agreed to reverse the spell if Gaz, on her own, could pass the Shadowhog's test; the test turned out to be two questions ("How tall am I?" and "Whats the code for infinite lives in Super Kicky Fighter?") that the Shadowhog didn't even seem to know the answer too.
After Gaz solved the questions, the Shadowhog removed the spell and "hung-out" with Gaz, playing video games, eating ice cream, dancing to the ballet and playing cards with her. Eventually Dib, who believed Gaz had failed the Shadowhog's test, appears and begs the Shadowhog to punish him for "cursing" his sister; the Shadowhog proceeded to make Dib clean his filthy toilet using several toilet brushes attached to his head at Gaz's suggestion. Shadowhog was voiced by Jeffery Jones.
Two robots created by Zim's voot cruser (came with his base,) to act as parents for his human guise, due to their extreme mental instability though, the Roboparents are rarely used. In "Parent Teacher Night", Zim has the Roboparents attend a meeting with Ms. Bitters with disastrous results; in "Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars" the Roboparents go completely hay-wire and cause mass-scale havoc for Zim. The Roboparents also made several other small appearances such as in "Zim Eats Waffles", "Bloaty's Pizza Hog" and "The Girl Who Cried Gnome". It was planned to have an episode where the Roboparents go crazy (Roboparents gone Wild). The voices of the Roboparents were provided by Micheal McDonald and Mo Collins, two comedians who were regulars on the sketch show, MADtv.
Mini-Moose is not to be confused with Zim's other slave Minimoose. Mini-Moose is a small squeaky toy that GIR owns. The Mini-Moose looks similar to Minimoose. He appears only in Invasion of the Idiot Dog Brain as seen in the picture above.
Squishy Hugger of Worlds Edit
A gargantuan being who is full of love, Squishy expresses his love by hugging planets. Unfortunately, that spells doom for whatever planet Squishy hugs. Earth is the next planet Squishy plans to hug, so he must be stopped.
Fillerbunny is a bunny who takes up space from Jhonen's comic "Fillerbunny." In Walk of Doom, he was a bus decoration and at the beginning of the episode Dark Harvest, there is a teacher (Carol Millican) inside of one of the classrooms. She is carrying a vial containing what appears to be "Filler Bunny". Fillerbunny was hit by a Dodgeball and was decapitated.
Future Dib Edit
Zim created a robot made to look like Dib from the not-so distant future in order to get past PEG's security. The robot looks like a beaten up version of Dib. Zim planted it in Dib's room, tricking Dib into going into a warehouse where he was captured while using the Future Dib to walk past the security. He was voiced by Andy Berman
Dinky is the city zoo's half monkey/half badger hybrid, created for a program that lets kids make the animals they'd like to see. RoboDad steals Dinky from the zoo as a replacement for Zim when they realize that Zim doesn't love them (due to a malfunction, they start to think they are Zim's real parents). They decide tjhat their new son's name should be Zim, although Dinky is actually a female. Dinky destroys everything she sees and wrecks Zim's base. "Old" Zim returns, wearing Hobo hair to look like Dinky. He confronts Dinky and manages to subdue the beast, then poses as the badger-monkey in order to get close to the RoboParents. He uses a device to deactivate them and then reactivate them in their original states. Just when all is well, the zoo keepers abduct Zim, thinking he is Dinky, due to a tip from the Hobo whose beard Zim took.
Santa Suit Edit
The Santa suit is one of Zim's inventions, developed from a Vortian liquid substance given to Zim by Prisoner 777. Each molecule contains a microscopic hard drive full of Santa data. Zim controlled the suit with a brain interface panel attached to his head. The suit began to think it was the real Santa and every time Zim encountered something jolly the suit took over and acted jolly itself. Zim inserted a stabilizer into the suit to keep it under control until he later saw an excruciatingly cute child. The stabilizer flew out and the suit took permanent control. Dib blasted the suit with a mech and the suit went crazy. It mutated into a horrible creature and attacked Dib. Dib finally blasted enough missiles into it so that it weakened, allowing Zim to escape the suit. Zim used the brain interface to shrink the suit down to a tiny size. He kicked it into the hand of Dib's mech and Dib launched it into space. Out in space, it gathers power and returns every Christmas, which is why people live in a protective dome 2 million years later.
He was voiced by Richard Steven Horvitz.
When Professor Membrane competes with another scientist to see who can create a robot quicker, Membrane finishes first with his robot Foodio. Dib arrives with Zim's pak attached to his chest, causing his personality to start to become overtaken by Zim. When the Zim personality ceases enough of Dib, Dib scrambles over to the unfinished robot that the other scientist started and programmed it to be Destructio, the robot that will end all life on Earth. Destructio leaves, smashing through a wall. When Dib gets Zim's pak detached from his body, he goes off to pursue Destructio.
The Spider Alien Edit
These aliens are spider-like in appearance. They have a second clown head on top of their spider head, which is a false head for distracting predators. This second head is filled with water.
Professor Membrane competes with another scientist in completing robots. They work on brains to be put in their robots' heads. Membrane finishes first and activates as Foodio, the robot who will end world hunger. He leaves immeadiately after activation.
Count Cocofang Edit
The breakfast cereal mascot for CocoSplodies, Count Cocofang is a cartoon vampire with one fang and a taste for fudge. Paranormal Investigator Bill has always suspected that the Count is an actual vampire and his suspicions where confirmed (at least for him) when Dib accidently led him to Buns Market, where an actor portrayed Count Cocofang. Bill persued the Count Cocofang impersonator with a stake in his hand. He was voiced by André Sogliuzzo.
Khaaaak is a four-legged alien who fell into the molten pit of hideous creaming pain while training with Zim on Hobo 13. He mysteriously reappeared at the canyon of the Hogulus, where Zim drained energy from his suit into his own suit. He was voiced by Jhonen Vasquez.
Mr. Sludgy Edit
2 million years in the future, a robotic snowman named Mr. Sludgy sings songs and tells stories to children. He tells them the story of the most horrible Christmas ever, in which Zim came close to world conquest.
He is voiced by Fred Tatasciore.
A half Turkey/Man resident at the Sweaty Pits apartment complex, Dib mistakes this Irish fellow for Chickenfoot and chases him to his home. There he reveals his gargantuan neck meats along with his identity: Turkeyneck. He thought Dib was after his lucky neck meats.
He is voiced by Fred Tatasciore.
A tall bug-like guy who trained with Zim on Hobo 13, Skikkiks would've made a much better squad leader than Zim. He tried to suggest his ideas which were better for the team's safety, but Zim threatened him and went with the plans that would ensure only Zim's safety. Skikkiks was eliminated during the first task, where he fell into the molten pit of hideous screaming pain. He is voiced by Wally Wingert.
The Dookie Beast Edit
The Dookie Beast is a toilet-dwelling creature in the back of the Shloogorghs restaurant.
The Overtrouser Edit
The Overtrouser is the leader of the pants aliens. They are a parasitic race that latch on to their hosts, looking like a pair of pants, and control them. After taking over the city, the pants-controlled citizens capture Dib and take him to the Overtrouser, who mindmelds with him in order to tell him their story. The Overtrouser tells Dib that his race was drifting around in their damaged spaceship until Zim contacted them and offered to help in exchange for disposing of the infestation of humans. Dib convinces the pants that Zim is a liar so they rebel and swarm over to Zim's base. Zim reveals that he planned to launch the humans, while still wearing the pants, into the sun in their new ship. Dib, wearing the Overtrouser, fights Zim in a pair of giant robot battle pants. They fight by doing a bizarre dance, and while they dance the pants aliens crawl into their new ship. They leave, abandoning the Overtrouser.
Mooshy and Spoopty Edit
Dib and Mr. Dwicky lure Zim into the forest by sending him a Plookesian signal and offering him super weapons. In the middle of their encounter, two real Plookesians named Mooshy and Spoopty come, having also recieved the signal. They give Zim super weapons, take Mr. Dwicky with them, and leave Dib with nothing.
Security Dolls Edit
Security robots disguised as stuffed animals, Gaz keeps these dolls in her room in case of emergency. They obey her every command. They have also been programed to eat Human Flesh.
The Digestor Edit
A giant beast kept for gladiatorial combat, The Digestor comes from a cut scene in The Nightmare Begins. Instead of simply giving Zim his "secret mission," the Almighty Tallest originally teleported him into a fighting arena with Irken Battle Armor. When the Digestor was unleashed to attack him, Zim would have given the beast the sandwich that Tallest Red gave him earlier. The pleased Digestor then would've skipped away like a pleased child.
The Meekrob Edit
Beings of pure energy from the planet Meekrob visit Dib in Zim's holo-simulation. They give him super powers so he can defend the Earth. They turn into giant shoes, thinking Dib can't comprehend their normal form. They were supposed to have another role in the Unnamed (and unfinished) 2-part Season 2 finale. They were voiced by Greg Ellis.
The larger of the Planet Jackers who steal Earth, Oog is the one who goes out to face Zim every time Zim becomes an annoyance. He is voiced by Sherman Howard.
The scrawnier of the two Planet Jackers that abduct Earth, Nik pilots the ship and does most of the talking. He is voiced by Rob Izenberg.
The Ham Demon Edit
Zim defeats an evil Ham Demon in order to get photos of Tak's giant Weenie Stand.
The Alien Kid and his Mom Edit
The kid and his mom belong to an alien race with nubs on their heads. Both have huge pupils, though the mom's pupils cover her entire eyes. The kid has the ability to point like no other. He's the only customer to pay attention to all of the happenings with Zim at Shloogorgh's. Basicly his one speaking part is: "Look mama! He's gonna splode!" It appears that the alien kid is in the logo for the Resisty. Also, one of their species worked on Vort as a scientist in th cancelled episode The Trial.
The Alien Kid was voiced by Paul Greenberg.
Pornography Eating Alien Edit
These aliens have long, orange heads. They are seen on Foodcourtia, seeking to quench their thirst for snacks. Zim rants to one of them, complaining about working in Shloogorgh's and even steals his fries.
This species consumes 90 percent of the Universe's pornography as noted on The Commentary.
He was voiced by Eric Trueheart.
Brain Skull Edit
Brain Skull is one of Zim's teammates in the Invader Zim episode Hobo 13. He lasted for awhile, but got out by Zim pulling him back to keep his own balance.
Brain Parasite Edit
Large creatures that attach themselves to the heads of their prey and suck out the entire brain, Zim planned to use one of these brain parasites to overtake mankind. The parasites are large sacks of veiny flesh lined with tentacles and eyes with a lamprey-like jaw to suck out the brain. Zim's brain parasite was kept in a containment unit that needed constant adjustments to keep it asleep. After being ignored for too long, the parasite escaped into the base and attached itself to Zim. It also bears an extremely vauge resemblance to the Metroids from the video game series of the same name.
The Two Moronic Aliens Edit
The abductors are a father-son alien duo who travel through the galaxy collecting specimens in a massive holding area of their vast ship. However, they are so incompetent that 99.9% of their prisoners escape. Zim and GIR were their choice for a human and a dog, as the Abductors were fooled by their ingenious disguises, but they easily escaped. They kidnapped Zim and GIR by appearing at their doorstep in hideous human disguises, with the nametags Mary and Fred (but with the genders not matching the names). When Zim saw through their disguises, they stuffed the alien into a sack and beamed aboard their ship. Dib was later selected as their specimen of the Earth weasel. The two aliens (sometimes dubbed Blue and Green by fans due to their eye colors) are the same ones from Jhonen Vasquez's comics who abduct Rob Hummel and attempt to abduct Squee!, except here they don't have their hover pod wheel chairs.
Tak has a custom SIR unit (probably built from pieces of actual SIRs she obtained during janitorial work on planet Dirt) named MiMi. She has a large claw hand used for destruction. While on Earth, she goes disguised as a cat. She is very agile in this state. Gaz obtains MiMi's SIR memory disk which is used to find out Tak's plan. GIR is later hooked up to the disk so he can operate MiMi remotely, causing her to act crazy and wreck Tak's ship while she is in space.
The Marzoid Edit
The last of his kind, this Marzoid is simply a holographic instruction manual programmed into the Mars control panel. He explains to Zim about how the Marzoid race became extinct while turning their planet into a giant space ship.
He was voiced by Ted Raimi
SIR Units Edit
Main:SIR (Invader Zim)
Standard-issue Information Retrieval units, known as SIRs, are issued to the Invaders before they are sent on their missions. SIRs are competent robot minions that can compact (and even serve as a thermos). Instead of wasting a SIR on ZIM, the Tallest built GIR out of spare parts and junk. Tak also has a SIR named MiMi, probably built from spare parts on Planet Dirt. The Tallest kept a storage room full of malfunctioning SIRs that they intended to send to ZIM. They were accidentally sent to Invader Tenn and ravaged her base.
While Malfunctioning they are voiced by Rosearik Rikki Simons.
Larb's SIR was voiced by Wally Wingert.
Monster Dog Edit
A small, chihuahua-like dog with a lobotomy scar and a strange right eyeball, appears in many episodes. Everybody, especially Zim, seems to greatly fear this dog and shriek in horror when it is spotted. Intended to be a running gag, Zim screamed "MADNESS!" at the sight of the dog in Walk of Doom, (Which led to the fans unofficially naming him "Madness") He also appeared in Walk for Your Lives, but wasn't referred to as "madness" but rather "Dog with meat. DOG WITH MEAT!" (referring to the steak it was carrying) (In some episodes he was also referred to as Meat Dog)
The Dog would seem to be an indirect reference to Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, as Johnny remarks that he encountered a Chihuahua and had a similar reaction to it as Zim.
The DVD commentary explains that the character was eventually abandoned because the staff found that this running gag was just not all that funny after all. . . and they just forgot to add it, eventually.
Lawn Gnomes Edit
Part of ZIM's front yard decoration in order to seem more human, the Lawn Gnomes also double as defensive robots equipped with laser eyes. They are able to roam around the lawn freely despite appearing stationary. Several transforming Lawn Gnomes were used to capture Dib in a warehouse in Future Dib. ZIM later modified an army of Lawn Gnomes to be elf-like as his helpers when he posed as Santa.
Nub Bubbins Alien Edit
The Nub Bubbins alien is the smallest squad member on Hobo 13. When the team tries to make it through a maze guarded by a robot snake creature, Zim tosses Nub Bubbins to the snake creature in order to save himself. The Nub Bubbins alien is designed after a skool child named Nub Bubbins, who can be seen in the stock kids section. Ironically, Nub Bubbins wears a costume of his alien counterpart in The Halloween Spectacular of Spooky Doom. You can see Nub in costume lying on the ground in the Halloween episode. Perhaps skool child Nub Bubbins is really an alien who decided to go undisguised for Halloween? Nub Aliens had a small similar design to the two doughboys in Jhonen Vasquez's Johnny the Homicial Maniac.
Sandwich Monster Edit
Sandwich Monster is one of Zim's team members in the episode Hobo 13. Was eliminated for no reason.
Pustulio is a pimple with hypnotic powers that forms on Zim's cheek after he is exposed to GIR's greasy pizza and GIR's bacon soap. GIR draws a marker face on the pimple and Zim adds a body from the 'GEARS CIRCUITS HEADLESS BODIES' box in his storage area.
GIR is often seen with pig friends. He has taken pigs to his room, to tea parties, and to the movies. Whether or not it is the same pig is unknown. Pig has appeared in Germs, Battle of the Planets and Gaz, Taster of Pork. Pig after GIR waves Good-bye can be heard driving a Motorcycle.
Zim's Computer Edit
It's just Zim's computer. Zim's Computer really doesn't care about anything. He doesn't know that much about Earth, but tries to help in any way that he can. He is located all over the house, so Zim can communicate with him anywhere. Zim's Computer is voiced by Jhonen Vasquez. Usally iratated.
A tiny, rounded moose figure, presented as Zim's other henchman, debuting in the series' final episode, The Most Horrible X-Mas Ever. Zim claims that Minimoose has "been there all along", despite having only one appearance. (Vasquez planned to show a montage of scenes from older episodes with Minimoose crudely pasted into them after the quote, but the scene was cut for time)
Minimoose was created by Zim from designs given by Vortian Prisoner #777. He has extremely dangerous weapons hidden in his "nubs"; which could be referring to either the small antlers on the sides of his head or the four bumps that serve as his legs. However, these weapons malfunction on their first attempted use, in the unfinished script "Nubs of Doom". Zim created Minimoose to replace Gir, out of sheer frustration with the insane little robot. When Minimoose failed, Zim gave him to Gir to play with.
His favourite activities include floating and squeaking adorably; the only form of communication of which he is capable. The actual personality of Minimoose is unknown, as he is incapable of communicating intelligibly, even though it seems his listeners understand him quite clearly. Implications by the context of surrounding dialogue to the squeaks imply that a single squeak from Minimoose can convey a rather large amount of verbiage.
Had the show continued, he would have played a major role, as shown in two unfinished scripts, 'Nubs of Doom' and 'Day of da Spookies'
Minimoose also appeared in Jhonen Vazquez's comic book adaptation of Invader Zim, which was featured in a Nickelodeon magazine, along with an interview.
Acne Blast Man Edit
The mascot for Acne Blast, Acne Blast Man is a living tube of Acne Blast. He uses electric volts to destroy the pimple on the Leonardo DicCaprio's face in a commercial for Acne Blast. He is voiced by Dave Fouquette
The Lice Queen Edit
The source of an outbreak of Lice nests under the Skool. The Lice Queen is able to implant eggs in the heads of her victims. She can detach from her egg-laying abdomen in order to become more agile and deadly. Countess Von Verminstrasser kills the lice queen with a blast from the blender gun which shoots liquefied Zim-skin. The Lice Queen's vocal efects were provided by Dee Bradley Baker.
Stag Man Edit
Stag Man is one of Zim's teammates in the Invader Zim episode Hobo 13. He almost made it to the final holding chamber, but was eliminated the challenge before. He, along with Mole Rat Thing and Zootch Alien, were discovered while passing a group of Vicious Squid Plants because Zim threw a rock in their direction so that he and Throbulator could pass.
Cyborg Squirrels Edit
Aparently an experiment of Zim's due to their presence in his lab in The Girl Who Cried Gnome, these squirrels first appeared in the very beginning of Tak, the Hideous New Girl dancing on the window seal as Dib watches in terror.
Giant Flesh-Eating Demon Squid Edit
An experiment gone awry, this monster squid breaks free into the base and wrecks havoc along with an army of cyborg minions.
Mole Rat Thing Edit
Mole Rat Thing is one of Zim's teammates in the Invader Zim episode Hobo 13. He almost made it to the final holding chamber, but was eliminated the challenge before. He, along with Stag Man and Zootch Alien, were discovered while passing a group of Vicious Squid Plants because Zim threw a rock in their direction so that he and Throbulator could pass.
Robot Bee Edit
Zim owns a robot bee that he suspects Tak is after. When Tak leaves after her visit to Zim's house, the robot bee flies away through the large hole she leaves.
Robot Gopher Edit
The Robot Gopher is a creation used by Zim to intercept and destroy oncoming trespassers. Seen only once in the episode "The Girl Who Cried Gnome", the gopher was used on Moofy. At first it worked, digging a tunnel under moofy and trapping her. It malfunctioned and danced, playing a song. It then proceeded to blast into a portal in the stratosphere. It later returned to attack Dib...Although Jhonen chose not to show how.
Zootch Alien Edit
This trainee on Hobo 13 had a slug body with the head of skool child Zootch. The Zootch alien was eliminated from training when Zim threw a rock in his direction, alerting some plant creatures to his presence.
Eric the Blob Edit
Shloogorgh's number one customer due to the huge amount of food he buys, Eric is a cyclopean blob who has a job as an intergalactic repairman. He installed the security on the Vortian prisons and thus inadvertently gave Zim information on how to escape his job at Shloogorgh's by telling Zim that the restaurant used same faulty Vetkin Splodey System. Zim hid in Eric's food and then burst out of the blob once he was safely out of the restaurant. He was voiced by Eric Trueheart.
This Hobo 13 squad member is an alien made out of crystals. During the laser trench run, Zim reprogrammed the lasers to lock on her so that the rest of the team could get through. She almost made it through, but got eliminated in the last stretch. She was voiced by Danielle Koenig.
Second in command and in charge of firing the laser weapon, Shloonktapooxis is an important member of the resistance. His appearance is that of a floating purple cone with a curled antennae. His suggestion for the resistance's name was 'The Pirate Monkeys'. His own name is a joke directed at the unpronounceable names commonly found in sci-fi shows. Sometimes very depressed.
Shloonktapooxis is voiced by Paul Greenberg.
An incredibly stupid member of the resisity. He is full of bad ideas, such as attacking Massive and naming the resistance "the Resisty", that Lard Nar uses for some reason. When under stress he seems to twitch and roll around on the ground uncontrollably, similar to a seizure. Spleenk was voiced by Rodger Bumpass.
Throbulator is a creature of an unnamed race, which is notably made of pure headache. He appears as a small grayish-green alien with a huge head with veins sticking out, which he often grabs and screams in pain at the headache. He is only seen in Hobo 13, where he was the only remaining member of Zim's team, aside from Zim. Zim used his head as a battering ram to open the door of the Fortress of Pain. Throbulator's head seemed to pop on the final blow, which apparently cured his headache, as his final words before going to the Holding Pen of Pain being "Throbulator... feel nothing!" in an amazed, yet almost cheerful tone.
Thobulator was voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.
Smikka Smikka Smoodoo Edit
A member of an alien race with screws in their heads, Smikka Smikka Smoodoo is fed up with how things are going for his enslaved race who toil on a packaging planet. Smikka starts a revolution against the Irkens by switching the addresses on two packages, which caused Zim to get the MegaDoomer while Invader Tenn recieves defective SIRs.
He was voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.
Infinite Energy Absorbing Blob Edit
While working as a scientist at Vort Research Station 9, Zim created an infinite energy absorbing blob thing. While showing it to the visiting Tallest Miyuki, the blob ate an infinite energy producing thingy and grew out of control. It ate Tallest Miyuki and escaped, causing lots of havoc. Later, under the reign of Tallest Spork, the blob came back for its collar, which Zim still had. The blob busted through the ceiling and ate Tallest Spork. What became of the blob after that is unknown. He was originally supposed to be in the Unaired Episode The Trial.
Other Resisty Members Edit
- Unknown #1 - This member of the Resisty is a little green blob who vomits all over herself all the time. She looks similar to the mascot of the restaurant Shloogorgh's Flavor Monster, and thus is possibly from the same species.
- Unknown #2 - This member of the Resisty has 3 heads. He set the blob creature upright after it fell over. Based on the designs of the scientists for the unfinished episode The Trial, the three-headed alien might have worked as a scientist with Lard Nar on Vort.
- Unknown #3 - This member of the Resisty is an armless, insectoid alien with 4 legs and horn that protrudes from his chin like a goatee.
- Ixane - This alien wears a cloak that obscures what it looks like. She is the only Resisty alien besides the vomity blob that is clearly female.
Unknown #5 - One of the races to join up with the Resisty is a species with a dented head on a long neck. This race can also be seen on Foodcourtia.
- Unknown #6 - This alien lacks a head, but has its brain floating where its head would be.
- Unknown #7 & 8 - These members seem as though they are not aliens at all, but robots. They hover instead of walking.
Several Unknown Members - There are a good deal of this type of alien on the Resisty ship. Spleenk pushes through the crowd of them whenever he has something to say.
- Unknown # 9 - Gray-coloured aliens with large heads that resemble toenails. There are several of them working consoles aboard the ship, including the Shrinky Self-Destruct.
Nightmare World Inhabitants Edit
Grotesque and monstrous versions of all of Earth's inhabitants; in the episode "Halloween Spectacular of Spooky Doom" Dib, after accidentally tearing open a wormhole in his head, was continually shifted from Earth to the Nightmare world. It was eventually revealed that the Nightmare creatures had planned on leaving their wasteland dimension to invade Earth by going through the portal in Dib's head.
After being captured by the Nightmare creatures, Dib was surprisingly saved by Zim and the two managed to escape the Nightmare world, though the alternate version of Ms. Bitters had followed them; only to return to her own world in disgust after seeing a candy bloated and filthy Gir.

He is a silhouette with purple eyes that is with the Nightmare Creatures in the Nightmare Skool. He is visible in the top right of the screen at roughly 18:25 into the episode, after Dib asked if he had a say in their plan This extra spooky version of Johnny has been fan-dubbed 'Nightmare Nny'.

The Rat Person Leader is voiced by Rodger Bumpass.
The Rat Woman is voiced by Kathryn Fiore.
The Hogulus Edit
A large meat-thirsty beast, the Hogulus lives in a cave deep in a canyon on Hobo 13. Zim and his team must pass through this canyon, so Zim uses Skoodge as a distraction. Skoodge eventually escapes and runs to the Fortress of Pain, but the Hogulus follows. There, the Hogulus grabs Hobo 678 in its mouth and carries him away.
The Horrible Giant One Eyed Squid Edit
A team of scientists on "Probing the Membrane of Science" demonstrate what could have happened if they sent a giant squid into the past to stop Breakfast Chunks from ever being invented. This could be accomplished with temporal object replacement technology, but then there would be giant fishes in bear suits and tasty breakfast squids as a result of altering the past. The Squid is also in GIR Goes Crazy and Stuff where its brain is switched with Officer Squidman’s.
Bitey Headed Fly Edit
Dib performed an experiment with Gaz's favorite stuffed doll Bitey the Vampire, placing its head on a fly's body 3 Christmases prior. The fly still lives in the neighbor's yard.
The Fly Alien Edit
Two legged creatures with a tactical appendage for a mouth, these aliens appear to be saddled up for riding. They are seen on Foodcourtia, seeking to quench their thirst for snacks. Zim listens to the complaints of one of them awaiting the Slydoodeedoo she ordered. She was voiced by Mo Collins.

Shunk Wugga Edit
Shunk is the malformed ogre-like kid who Dib faced off in the second part of the audience admissions test for "Probing the Membrane of Science." He wanted to tie with Dib so that they could both go see the show, but Dib accidentally hit the part of Shunk's suit that gives you a point, so Shunk felt like he was betrayed. Gaz told Shunk lies, saying that Dib was making fun of Shunk's head. Shunk became very angry and eventually beat Dib. His weapon of choice was a giant Q-Tip. He is voiced by Jhonen Vasquez.
Tak's Downloaded Personality Interface Edit
Tak's Downloaded Personality Interface (Also reffered to as Tak's Computer) is exactly what the name suggests. First apearing in Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars after Zim had sent an energy wave to it as Dib used it to control The Massive against Zim. Dib is then kicked out of the ship after she says "Its seems that youve stolen me". It later appears again in Dibship Rising trying to Kill Dib while he tries to fix Tak's ship. After zapping her with a electric laser he later killed her and installed his own personality nto Tak's ship creating Dibship. She was voiced by Olivia D'Abo.
Giant Fish in a Bear Suit Edit
As a result of tampering with the past, giant fishes in bear suits would attack Tokyo. When Zim sent rubber piggies into the past, one appeared in Tokyo holding a "Hi Mom!" sign.
Cyborg Kitten Edit
Dib walks home from another defeat to find Professor Membrane tapping a seemingly normal kitten with a spoon. After a certain amount of taps, the cat sprouts cybernetic attachments, fires lasers from its eyes, and flies out of the room. It returns later to comfort Membrane when Dib decides that real science isn't for him.
Whenever someone breaks the Mall rules, Sgt. Slab Rankle throws them into an underground pit. With the addition of a zombie lab to the pit, Rankle now picks out prisoners and converts them into horrible zombies. Rankle has an army of useless zombies at his disposal if he ever feels the need to unleash them, such as when ZIM escaped from the pit while turning in a copy of "Intestines of War."
One of the zombies is dressed like a mall security guard.
The Zombies Groaning was done by Richard Steven Horvitz.
Cyborg Zombies Edit
Zim's rampant squid experiment assaults Zim with an army of robots at its disposal. Zim fights back the squid and its minions with a scepter-like device. The cyborg soldiers later storm into Dib's room and crush his equipment.
Television Cyborg Edit
When GIR runs into the old folks home in search of a power outlet, a television plays a show with a cyborg in it. He was voiced by Jhonen Vasquez.
When Dib hacked into the robot Dib, Zim used a monkey as a defense. It was put in the cage with Dib and prevented him from pressing the key on his laptop that would allow Dib to break into robot Dib's vocal circuits. Dib eventually tricked the monkey and pressed the key, angering the monkey. The monkey then beat up Dib. The monkey was later seen picking lice off of Rob's head and eating them while the skool was delousing.
Juan The Mad Cow Edit
NOTE: This Name is a Fan-Dubbed Name and is Not Official its only assumed. Juan The Mad Cow is One of The Cow's that Zim and GIR Try to Abduct. GIR Harrases him by Coming down on a Cable putting a Mexican Sombrero on Juan and doing a Butt Dance. When Zim tells GIR to stop he drags him up and The Pull drops Juan. Juan (or another cow was pulled up and hit in the side of The Barn by GIR while imagining The Cows as Dancing Weenies ruining their plan another Cow hits Zim causing the Dookie he was going to infect the Cows with to splatter all over him and The Voot Cruiser.
The Mutant Edit
In the virtual reality world Zim creates to sell candy, a mutant with a flaming head eating a little girl's doll. He was voiced by Rosearik Rikki Simons.
The 4-Legged Scooptus Edit
Mentioned in The Most Horrible Short Ever (Created by IZFAS) when Zim tries to demonstrate to GIR that a Normal Dog gets on all 4's and then Growls like The 4-Legged Scooptus. After that GIR starts to ride Zim saying I want to Ride the Scooptus implying that the Scooptus may be a Riding Animal.
Pigs, Bees, Squirrels and Moose Edit
Many of these creatures are seen throughout Zim. GIR is obsessed with piggies and has one nearly all the time. In the episode "Bad, Bad Rubber Piggy", Zim uses all of GIR's toy piggies to replace vital items in Dib's past in an attempt to destroy him. GIR also has a friend named Pig, who is just that, a very bewildered-looking pig, seen in "Germs". Gaz can be seen drawing piggies in the episode Bloaty's Pizza Hog, an entire episode revolves around her gaining the senses of a pig, and Bloaty from Bloaty's Pizza Hog is a grotesque man in a pig suit. There is also a Mysterious Mystery file referring to "Pigfoot'. Moose are present in the form of Minimoose and the horrible nut-eating moose in Room With a Moose, and GIR plays with a little toy moose in "Invasion of the Idiot Dog Brain". while Zim declares war on the 'evil death bees' for downing his Voot Cruiser in Saucer Morons and presents a robot bee in Tak, the Hideous New Girl. In Walk of Doom, Zim finds a bee hive in GIR's head while trying to insert the guidance chip and throws it in a chute where it's sucked up (GIR is upset about this, saying "Aw, my bees."). Squirrels appear in Zim's lab, dancing on Dib's school windowsill, and crawling over the Dib Ship. Zim also reprograms his classmate Keef to see a squirrel on a fence as Zim. In the commentary session for the episode "Attack of the saucer morons", Creator Jhonen Vasquez states "People ask me if I have a thing about Piggies, Squirrels or Moose, I do not. I do, however, have a thing about Bees".
