|Froggy G||Straight out of the marsh pond ghettos of planet Ribbit IV comes the amphibious B.I.G., also known as Nate Frogg, but mostly known as Froggy G. Growing up in the baddest part of town, struggle and incarceration surrounded Froggy from an early age. Taking part in his first swim-by shootout as a tadpole, Froggy seemed destined for a life of crime and prison.|
After a bloody gangwar with the neighbouring Toad-unit posse ended in a 5 year jail sentence, Froggy G vowed to end his gangsta ways. Instead, Froggy G started earning his keep as a beatboxing streetdancer and rapper, hoping to be picked up by a major record label. Unfortunately, his tracks titled "Pond Pimpin", "Froggin' dirty" and "Motherfrogger bounce!" didn't earn him much.
In order to make some money, and then make some mo', Froggy G became a hired gun. Combining his shoot-out experiences with lethal watery dance-moves and beatboxing techniques, Froggy G now spins and dashes across intergalactic battlefields, droppin foo's left and right with his fishgun, hoping to make some money to take his momma out of the hood.

|Sheriff Lonestar||At the heart of the milky way lies the Bovinion system, ruled by a semi intelligent cow-like species. Although technologically advanced to an acceptable level, these Bovinions have maintained a tribal form of society for several thousands of years. Until recent years, an age-old custom in this society was to scare young Bovinian calves with boogeyman stories about a scary cowboy. Naughty Bovinion calves would, as the story went, be caught by this cowboy's unrelenting lasso.|
Recently, a wealthy Bovinian visionary opened up a park where visitors would come to see a genetically re-engineered cowboy in action. But disaster struck and the cowboy escaped his cage. Before the Bovinions could react the cowboy had wrangled the entire park staff. Terror shook the Bovinion civilization as the cowboy started to wrangle every single Bovinion on the planet! Suddenly the Bovinions found themselves out of their cities and wrangled into herds on green meadows by the whisky drinking, bucket spitting, yeeehaawing horror.
Once the entire Bovinian civilization had been wrangled, the cowboy, naming himself Sherriff Lonestar, rode a rocketship into the sunset, his job complete. Now Sherriff Lonestar fights as a mercenary in the robot wars, combining his awesome cowboy-powers with high tech weaponry to earn some solar to spend on whisky and cigars.

|Leon Chameleon||Leon's life is a life of crime, women, and borrowing without returning. He lost his arm in a unfortunate jeu de boules incident and spends most of his time smoothly escaping debt collectors. He found himself breaking into the bedroom of the prime minister's wife, while looking for the wine cellar.|
He knew no amount of charm could save him this time and planned his escape, which was eventually delayed because he refused to escape in anything but a space yacht.
Leon joined the Awesomenauts for some quick cash, spending it on beautiful women and exquisite meals. In combat, he puts his natural reptile abilities to some good use and slices up his enemies with great precision. Combat is a form of art for this green gentleman.

|Scoop of Justice||The Scoop of Justice is a brave Gelati knight. The Gelati are brilliant craftsmen famous for their delicious Castle Ice Cream.|
The gelatinous knights gather snow and ice from different planets and mix them with sweet candies and fruits. Although cocoa trees haven't been seen for ages and are thought to be extinct, the Gelati see it as their holy duty to find a real piece of chocolate and create the ultimate flavor of ice cream: stracciatella.
Scoop was assigned by the lords of his house to aid the Awesomenauts in protecting the universe from the new Omicron threat.

|Gnaw||Skroggle infestations have been reported on over a dozen planets. The highly adaptable Skroggle physiology allows them to thrive in almost any atmosphere. Skroggles are omnivorous and their bizarre metabolism enables them to vomit plant-like creatures that excrete volatile acidic spores.|
Gnaw was taken from his home-planet as a Skroggle specimen by Kremzonian scientists. But Gnaw was not a beast that could be caged: his acid-breath melted his holding pen and Gnaw started to rampage through the science facility where he was held. No-one knows exactly what happened, but the facility was found 12 days later, abandoned, and overgrown with some weird, toxic flora.
Gnaw was eventually noticed by a passing band of Amphibian cosmic bikerpirates. Gnaw was in need of some friends, and he was taken in by them, nurtured and trained to fight in black-market exotic-alien arena fights. Occasionally his masters sell Gnaw's "services" to any war general that is desperate enough to set loose the rapid, chitinous menace upon the battlefield.

|Raelynn||Raelynn loves big guns. After highschool she went straight into the E.L.F. army to fight against the invading robots, just before the first AI war. |
She was trained by the best and excelled in long range weaponary. Within a year she was given the honor of joining an elite squad called the SkyHawks, where she met the love of her life: her Pulserifle "Cuddles".
For years they did covert missions together as a team to disrupt robot production and steal robot technologies. They were feared by all robots (well...the ones with emo-chips).
Until that one deep space mission to AI station 404 in the year 3009, where she ran into a robot ambush, and "Cuddles" was brutally taken away from her. Raelynn was put into cryo statis. Decades passed until a small mercenary team found her hidden on the planet. There she was rejoined with "Cuddles" and many warm 'hugs' were given that day to all robots on 404.

|Ayla||Ayla is a devious little girl. She comes from an old species called the Sadak, known for their great psychokinetic powers. Her parents were killed during the great Sevenelevian Coupon Wars and she was adopted by a sweet alien family. The couple grew fearful, however, when suspicious things started happening around the house: evil drawings on the wall, weird sounds at night and dead rapper frogs in the garden.|
When they finally figured out Ayla's "gifts" and dark sense of humor, they turned her over to the Sunny-daisy School of Social Re-adjustment. A few short days and several fires later, she got transferred to a maximum security psychiatric ward where she went berserk and chose the nearest wall for her stage exit.
Using her cute puppy-dog eye routine she managed to hitchhike her way across the galaxy and ended up with the Awesomenauts who, after her tantrums left half the ship in ruins, couldn't wait to get her in a droppod and away from their precious belongings. Still, she's a cherished member of the group, requiring only a gold-star sticker for her efforts on the field of battle!

|Clunk||Clunk is a robot suffering from anger management issues. He's saving up money to pay for therapy, but keeps losing it due to damage compensations. Originally created as part of a robot army built to combat an immensely powerful super villain terrorizing the outer star systems, Clunk found himself without a job when the villain accidentally died of a nasty bacterial infection before the robot army was completed.|
This was actually a blessing in disguise for Clunk, since he was never designed to return in one piece from his mission. He was refitted to do standard housekeeping work, but soon found himself out of work once more as he kept blowing aggression inhibitors and subsequently went into immensely destructive
Eventually, Clunk signed up as a mercenary to do what he is best at: wrecking things. He found that finally giving in to his aggressive nature has given him great inner peace. Nowadays he takes great pleasure in jetting around the battlefield, blowing up in peoples' faces to the sound of heavy metal.

|Voltar the Omniscient||Voltar's past is shrouded in mystery. Rumor has it he once was a researcher at a star-encapsulating power station. The station made intergalactic headlines when it exploded around 500 years ago, sending off ail kinds of strange, unseen radiation into space. In this explosion, the Al core of the Zero's was destroyed, bringing an abrupt end to the First Al War. Although peace was maintained for some centuries, the war eventually returned. Some think that war was just too profitable, and suspect that weapon manufacturers had a hand in the construction of a new Al core for the Zero's.|
The explosion at the power station destroyed almost every part of Voltar's body, leaving only his brilliant brain intact. This brain was carefully placed inside a Braintank by salvagers. Through the years, and with help of his loyal robot drones, he made some nifty modifications to his braintank that enabled him to participate in the newly erupted Robot Wars.
No-one knows Voltar's true motives for participating in the war as a mercenary, but what can be assured is that he’s a mastermind with unmatched psychotechnic powers and an arsenal of armed robots that do his every bidding.

Great raids are usually followed by great feasts and soon his nickname was altered to Skolldir The Terribly Overweight Space Viking. Nothing could scorn Skølldir more than this honorless title!|
Skølldir has set out on his space barge to impress the universe with his lightning fast fighting skills to prove this moniker wrong and show his nimbleness. Anyone who would dare to call him fat is met with a rapid series of crushing punches and is thrown aside. All the while, Skølldir's metallic suit is telling him how many calories he is burning.

Also, the warpfields radiation boosted Yuri's mind to superintelligent levels. The new, more intelligent, mad and slightly sadistic Yuri quickly grasped the situation and modified his broken rocket into an equally mad timetraveling supercomputer jetpack.

Nevertheless Derpl is the heir apparent to Blabl's galaxy-spanning business empire. This is something that doesn't sit well with Blabl, not well at all. Dreading the day Derpl would inherit the company and run all the hardfought accomplishments into the ground, Blabl put Derpl in charge of fieldtesting the new Specialized Universal Secretary Interface (S.U.S.I. for short) in one of Zork Industries' combat walkers. Asking Derpl what form of devastation should be issued forth from his vehicle of destruction he simply drooled and said: "I wuv cats!"
Now Blabl is anxiously awaiting the day that Derpl would suffer a fatal blow on the fields of battle but as of yet Derpl's combat walker has proven to keep making up for its dimwitted driver.

Vinnie is quite the hothead, leaving Spike to do the heavy lifting while he plots out the next heist. With a pack full of restraining orders this little plankton devil is not to be messed with. They are wanted on numerous planets including their homeplanet Okeanos where the largest crime syndicate Shisu has put a reward on their head for stealing the Kullinan Koi, the biggest golden Koi ever known to fish and worth 4.8 Billion Solar.
Unfortunately the duo lost the Koi somewhere in the Atlantic ocean while fleeing from Interpool.
Being a pufferfish, Spike can gasp for air and float up, flapping his fins to move around. He is always ready for a fast getaway and can dash out of combat, leaving a smokebomb behind to fool his enemies, while both Vinnie and Spike run with the loot.

Any planet the Entin visit, they leave ravaged in their wake. They have been labeled a pest in need of extermination for eating entire continents worth of crops and terrorizing the local populace with late night techno raves.

A Kremzon took him in and put him on a rough training regiment, to prepare for his revenge on Sheriff Lonestar.|
Samuel grew stronger as the years passed, and one day, when Lonestar visited the planet, tried to ambush him at the spaceport. The cowboy saw through his plan and made Samuel lose his balance while he was preparing to throw a spaceship. Samuel woke up in a hospital with one of his arms and horns replaced by mechanical versions, and a note saying that they were a gift for "Pursuing a common goal." Lonestar and the inhabitants of Flexon thought he was dead, so his "revival" earned him the nickname: "Deadlift".

|Ted McPain||Ted McPain was one of the great heroes of the first AI Wars, a long time ago. He has led his squad of elite super soldiers, the Killer Koala’s, against many opponents and has been decorated as an outstanding soldier a hundred times over. His ultimate achievement, during the climax of the First AI Wars, was a solo operation onto the AI’s battle station Starstorm. This mission ended in Ted McPain single handedly unhinging all of the station’s crucial power couplings, effectively making sure the station wouldn’t be completed before the end of the war. Ted McPain eventually died when he sacrificed himself to save the Sunny-Daisy Alien Orphanage from a band of bloodthirsty dinosaur zombies in 3021. Ted’s heroic deeds would never be forgotten.|
He lived on as he became the star of various video games: Ted McPain I through XVII, Ted McPain: Zombie Blast, Ted McPain vs. evil Ted McPain and Ted McPain Unicorn Dance Karting.
When Voltar The Omniscient learned of the violent dimwitted video game star, he brewed up a plan that would backfire horribly. He created the Materializotron XT8000 with which he wanted to bring back the war hero of old to be his personal assistant. Extracting Ted McPain’s digital essence from his video games, Voltar managed to materialize a life-size flesh and blood version.

|Penny Fox||As an honorary Star Scout, Penny's lifestyle was one of exploration and adventure. During her years out scout-badge-hunting among the tars on her trusty space-scooter, she saw many wonderous places and lifeforms.|
One of the many hobbies that developed during these years, is the collecting and stuffing in jars of those same wonderous lifeforms and various other doodads. Cataloguing and archiving everything in neatly labeled containers for her own private collection is something Penny takes great pride in.
While adding the latest uncooperative alien lifeform to her jar collection, she contemplated the meaning of life, the universe and everything. Looking back on all those innocently staring eyes from the rows upon rows of jars, Penny realised that there was so much more a sole Star Scout could do with butterfly net! She swore a vow on scout's honor to stuff the galaxy's evil doers into her jars, making the universe a better place for the cute and the cuddly!
Without a second thought she jumped on her scooter and set off toward the stars. It was well beyond the point of no return when she realised that her trusty yet rather dated mode of transportation might not be up to the task of traversing the universe without the not-so-annual tune-up she forgot for the fifth year in a row. As the scooter shuddered to an embarrassing stop somewhere in the Raki system, she kept her calm and assessed the situation. A brief scan for spare parts showed a strange uncharted derilict station in the vicinity which seemed to have everything she needed to fix her broken mode of transport. Awkwardly making her way toward it using the Star Scout approved Deep-Space Breast Stroke, she found the name "Starstorm" emblazened on the hull of this grimy time-worn, and seemingly abandoned spacestation.
During her searches inside the bowels of the station, she found a mysterious robotic claw artifact. Curiosity being known to killing the inferior feline species, this confident canine locked it immediately to her wrist and was suddenly awash with power.
Unbeknownst to Penny, she had just taken the first step toward the biggest adventure of her life!

|Sentry X-58||Deep in the bowels of the derelict station, an army of killer robots remain deactivated in storage containers, withering away to rust. The remaining functional robots futilely await the moment they are called back into action by masters who are now long dead. Centuries pass without any activity aboard the drifting colossal station. Not until the station’s backup systems flare back to life, providing enough energy to reactivate some of the still operational robots. One of these is known as Sentry.|
Sentry is a special infiltration and reconnaissance unit whose prime directive “If you can’t beat ‘m, join ‘m, and then beat ‘m anyway cause they won’t expect it” has served his kind in many a war. Being clearly built for stealth, fooling enemy troops by mimicking anything from an umbrella to a designer coffee table, he is the first to be sent onto the battlefield to gather intel. After emerging from his stasis and discovering an enemy mercenary ship that has landed on the Starstorm, he snuck himself aboard, disguised as an inconspicuous Phone Booth.
After overhearing the crew that the robots lost the AI war and that his comrades have been turned into kitchen and household appliances, he reprogrammed himself for vengeance and planned to destroy them all! He now works, undercover, for the Awesomenauts until he has gathered enough Solar to buy a very serious tank, one with a shark printed on the front.

Skree found himself all alone on an abandoned space station filled with mighty looking robots. Mistaking the robots’ station for a burial ground of ancient space spirits, he decided to live the rest of his life in service to the silenced automatons. He spent his time on collecting different parts of the battle station to create shrines for his newly found robot gods and connected robot parts and machine scraps to form huge robotic statues and altars. Unbeknownst to Skree, his rigging rites accidentally shortly activated the mainframe of the Starstorm, powering the construction robots and the Starstorm’s weapons systems itself.|
All of a sudden Skree found the Starstorm vibrating as it’s systems slowly started to come online, it’s robotic denizens starting to carry out their age-old grim directive. Skree decided he liked his spirit-gods better when they were statues and went into hiding.
Skree was found by the Awesomenauts on the Starstorm hiding in one of his shrines in the Starstorm’s ventilation systems, praying to make the evil robots go back to sleep. Thinking the Awesomenauts were magical spirit-guides, Skree adopted a new vision quest and joined the Awesomenauts to seek out better spirit-gods to worship.

|Nibbs||Nibbs is a dragon warrior in service to the Sisterhood of Coba. This demonic group was bound to the Omicron dimension who, as soon as the Starstorm ripped a hole in the continuum, started an invasion of conquest.|
Right after going through the portal, Nibbs's ship landed on the space station. Scouting around, she mistook Gnaw's tail for a juicy piece of fruit. After he was bitten, the startled Gnaw led her right back to the Awesomenauts who managed to convince her to stay with a wide variety of exotic treats.

Professor Milton Yoolip
|As a scientist professor Milton Yoolip loves to create wondrous inventions and contraptions like the dog aura reader, nightmare-to-VHS recorder, the random number phone, cereal-to-milk-ratio calculator and an actual time machine. |
One day after combining the time machine into some comfy slippers, he teleported to the Mesozoic era and got stuck with the dinosaurs after losing one of his teleportation slippers.
He spent years to craft a new slipper to travel forward in time to return to his beloved granddaughter Ayla. He joined the Awesomenauts team to finally spend some quality time with her and eat some over-engineered pancakes.

|Chucho Krokk||Chucho comes from a rich, if slightly shady family called the Krokk. Let’s face facts here: they may have achieved fame and fortune on Calias by hunting down the biggest criminals in the galaxy, but they’re just as bad themselves. But hey, it takes a crook to catch a crook, so Chucho has taken up the family mantle of being a BAD-ASS BOUNTY HUNTER. |
Which wouldn’t be so awkward if he didn’t have the world’s largest lisp. Oh well. No time for that, because the self-styled Time Krokk” is on the hunt for an Awesomenaut who has been illegally travelling through time. In his inventory rests a suspicious, smelly time traveling slipper that might lead him to an altogether deadly confrontation with his unsuspecting bounty...

|Jimmy and the LUX5000||Jimmy, Amy and the LUX5000 Toddletron are a mighty team. They have won numerous fights in robobrawls held in the many arenas and slums of Circuit City on Calias. The twins love to crush enemies and cause mayhem with the Toddletron's metal wrecking balls, which are basically two big rattles from their perspective. After each won fight Jimmy and Amy share a bottle of the finest Bovinian milk and watch cartoons before nap-time.|
Being big fans of the Awesomenauts they skipped the seasonal diaper league tournament and joined the team for some grown up fights.

|Max Focus||Originally a security camera who was accidentally turned sentient by Professor M. Yoolip, Max quickly found a job with the Channel 7 Galactic News when that professor somehow slipped out of time. For years, Max happily caught the juiciest news from the most compromising angles.|
When the war between the Ones and Zeroes broke out, Max developed a real taste for war reporting. Craving even bigger explosions and spectacle, Max decided it was time to start making the news himself and joined the Awesomenauts.
