Yin Yang Yo! is a Canadian-American animated television series created by Bob Boyle II (also the creator of Nick Jr. series Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!) and produced by Jetix Animation Concepts. It is the third Jetix-original show. It premiered on October 2, 2006 on Jetix with a sneak peek airing on August 26, 2006. It debuted on Jetix UK on February 5, 2007 after a sneak peek preview on January 27, 2007. It made its Canadian television premiere on Family Channel on March 25, 2006. It stars two rabbits named Yin and Yang, and their panda master named Master Yo. The series' second (and final) season premiered on December 31, 2007 and ended on April 18, 2009.
This show is about two anthropomorphic rabbit twins named Yin and Yang that train under Master Yo, a grumpy old panda who ends up being their father. They learn the sacred art of Woo Foo, a special type of martial arts that involves might and magic. They must work together to save the world from evil villains and forces that want to destroy, corrupt, or take it over. But through all these adventures, Yin and Yang still portray typical siblings; sometimes disagreeing with each other, but still care about each other and working together when needed.
During the first season, the primary goal was to defeat the Night Master, a powerful enemy. During the second season, there are three primary storylines. The first one sees Yin and Yang trying to prevent other villains from being crowned the new Night Master. The second is Yang's own quest to find powerful mystic artifacts by some later-revealed-to-be villains: four evil heads who he thinks are the masters of Woo Foo. The third sees Yin and Yang against the original and reborn Night Master, Eradicus – ultimately trying to build a Woo Foo army to fight against his army.
The setting is in an Asian part of Chicago. The town's buildings have an Asian style. The residents are monsters, humanoids, robots and animals with human-like qualities and behaviors. The residents keep unusual pets like puppygriffs, creatures that are half puppy and half griffin, as well as real animals like dogs, cats, opossums or armadillos. Magic and martial arts still exist since ancient times when the Night Masters were around.
Yin Yang Yo! premiered on Jetix on October 2, 2006, and the first season has been completed with 26 episodes, including the three parts to Woofoogeddon. In January 2007, Jetix ordered a second season of Yin Yang Yo! with 26 episodes planned. The second season premiered on January 1, 2008 and ended on April 18, 2009, with 13 additional episodes.
- Yin (voiced by Stephanie Morgenstern) Main Protagonist and Yo's student. Yin is a pink rabbit. Yin is often described as intelligent, cute, girly, and sassy. She mostly uses with the Mystic side of Woo Foo, but she can also use the Martial Arts side of Woo Foo. She is often quite stubborn, and shows signs of being a "neat freak". Yin generally has a good sense of right and wrong, and usually does the right thing. It has been shown, mostly in season two, that she likes "bad boys", but she has said it was just a phase. Yin's favorite color is pink, and her favorite animal is a two-ni-corn (a unicorn with two horns instead of one). Yin loves to sing, and is apparently very good at it. She is also a shopaholic. She can also be vain and self-centered at times and not being that nice at all, and really likes evil guys. In the episode Night Fall, upon discovering Coop was working for the Night Master, gained an attraction to him. It was because of this personality trait that she temporarily became evil through Coop's influence in "Gone-A-Fowl", and went on a rampage across town with him to prove that she was evil enough to be the Night Mistress (with him as the Night Master). Before she and her brother Yang were adopted by Master Yo they were street urchins or waifs. She is the same age as Yang.
- Yang (voiced by Scott McCord) Main Deuteragonist and Yo's student. He is a blue rabbit leader of group woo foo and the twin brother of Yin. He mostly uses the Martial Arts side of Woo Foo, but he can also use the Mystic side of Woo Foo. Yang is a cuckoo, lucky, courageous character, and has a liking for clowns. Despite not usually showing it, he really cares about his sister and Master Yo's well-being, and it is shown in the episode My Stupid Sword that Yang pushed Yin out of the way so Yin would not get in trouble by Master Yo when he appeared in the secret Woo Foo Armory. He enjoys fighting, and likes hitting stuff. His catchphrases are "Hippity hoppity hard", "That's right!", "(Aw) Pellets!", "Whatever!" and "Two words. 'Who' 'Cares'?". He also cares about saving the world. Yang owns a sword which can transform into various objects such as weapons,household materials and fruit. He enjoys video games, likes motorbikes, and also telling jokes. In the current season, he has decided to be a nicer person. Girls are a big part of Yang's life. Lina, his girlfriend, is one of them. Yang doesn't usually think about what is best to use against an enemy before leaping into action. Unlike Yin and Yo, he has not yet turned evil for a short time, which is ironic considering his violent personality compared to them. A group of evil spirits claiming to be "Woo Foo elders" had guided Yang on a quest to find magical items, but it turned out to be a trap to free Eradicus from his eternal prison. However, Yin, Yang and Yo were able to defeat him. Yang's battle cry is "Chee, Hoo, Wha!" In the episode A Toy's Story it is revealed that he is an 11-year-old. Before he and his sister Yin were adopted by Master Yo they were street urchins or waifs.
- Master Yo (voiced by Martin Roach) Teacher of Yin and Yang. Yo is a grumpy old panda whose age is unknown (but he missed his 117th high school graduation anniversary reunion). Yo has great sage wisdom and is a master in the Woo Foo arts. Master Yo mentors Yin and Yang in the Woo Foo way to save the world, but it wasn't his choice. The spirits of past Woo Foo warriors stopped him from watching a movie called Who Stole the Cookie until he decided to do it. He's able to use both might and magic and has moves that Yin and Yang have no clue about. His moves include Marbalize, Foo-Pie, Foo-pliclate, and De-Puslify etc. In the episode Turnabout, he was made into a three year old, and was able to use Woo Foo Aura and Woo Foo Lightning. This shows that he was very good at Woo Foo at a young age. He once was able to defeat the ultimate evil, the Night Master. He is, in his own words, the last panda on the planet. Not many people believe that. He is shown to be on a quest for a younger spouse of sorts as he is often seen trying to pick up women, though he is unsuccessful. In Slumber Party of Doom, it is revealed that he lives a double-life as the crimefighting vigilante Possum Panda (a parody of Batman), which is really just another way for him to avoid his parenting duties. His alter-ego returns in The Secret Life of Possum Panda, however due to having forgotten he is Possum Panda, he starts fighting crime in his sleep as Possum Panda. It is shown in "The Howl of The Weenie" that he has afear of cholesterol build-up. It is revealed in "Yin Yang... Who?" that he is Yin and Yang's biological father (while he was "On The Edge Of Aliveatude"), though his memory of them was wiped by Ti and Chai, so he could train them impartially without worry about their safety.
- Lina (voiced by Novie Edwards): An aqua-green female dog, Lina is Yang's not-quite-yet girlfriend and Yin's best friend. She is a nice, yet short-tempered girl who lives on a farm with her father. She was first introduced in "Beetlemania", when Yang pretended to be a Woo Foo Warrior in order to impress her, but his plan backfired after he had to fight a giant steel beetle. But Yin was eventually able to get Yang to tell the truth. In "The Yin of Yang", Lina showed some feelings for Yang after he tried to act like Yin in order to get more of her attention. In "Smoke and Mirrors", she actually tried to pursue him, though her attempts were frequently disrupted by Yin. In the episode "Yin Yang You!", it is finally revealed that her species is in fact dog, though it was widely believed by many beforehand that she was a bear. In the episode Gone-A-Fowl, she and Yang exchange their secret feelings for each other, and begin pursuing a relationship. In "Zarnot's Girlfriend", Lina goes on a date with Yang and kisses him, which he describes it as "Gross!", but they are still in a relationship. Lina is often unafraid to state her opinion, and even talks back to her father. She was trained by Yin and Yang to use Woo Foo and is the second-in-command of the Woo Foo army Yin and Yang gathered together. It was shown to she is able to do might and can do Yang's Paws of Pain.
- Roger Skelewog Jr. (voiced by Dwayne Hill): Logically the son of Yin and Yang's part-time enemy, Roger the Skelewog. At first, Roger Jr. was a bully to Yin and Yang, having mock fights with Yang and teasing him and Yin, but, during Woofoogeddon, it was revealed he longed to be Yang's best friend. Roger Jr., being a monster, has displayed super strength, such as when he easily took out a whole group of the Night Master's soldiers just by running by them with his arms. He can also breathe fire and launch spikes from his arms. In Season 2, he ultimately becomes friends with Yin, Yang and Lina. In some episodes of season 1 he had on a red shirt instead of a blue shirt. He is also a member of the Woo Foo army Yin and Yang gathered together.
- Dave (voiced by Dwayne Hill): A magical talking tree stump, Dave is a low-life and is considered pathetic by his friends. Many times, Dave is often caught in the crossfire of battles or hurt in some way by friend and/or foe. He is also whiny, talks nonstop about his family of trees, and is never noticed. As discovered in Stuck, Dave has the ability to communicate with and manipulate plants. This apparently surpasses that of the other characters. He is now a member of Yin and Yang's Woo Foo army.
- The Boogeyman: The Boogie Man is a disco-loving green monster that helps Yin and Yang defeat Pondscum, Zarnot, Fastidious and Mastermind in "Roboticus Maximus". When the two rabbits were looking for a sidekick to boss around he took charge over them which lead them to a victory. He became part of the Woo-Foo army they gathered.
- Jobeaux: A Redneckistanian prince practicing Woo Foo, while being disliked by his teachers, Yin and Yang, as a stupid, smelly hick. However, when he finally gets the time to clean himself up, he reveals himself to be a smart, well-groomed young man. After defeating the Chung Pow Kitties, Beaux reveals his knowledge of Yin and Yang's disrespect and returns home to marry and live in a castle of diamond-encrusted grits (which Yin was fantasizing about before they met). He has a pet armadillo named Fuzzy Thunder that hides in his mouth, giving him a hick accent. He can use Foo Field, Energy Rays, Foo Orbs, and Levitation. He is a member of Yin and Yang's Woo Foo army following the events of "Division Quest."
- Melodia (voiced by Megan Fahlenbock): A yellow-green aardvark who is the princess of the Stink Aardvarks. She is in love with Yang for his filthy ways, and despises all things clean. Despite this, she and Yin respect each other's differences. When the Woo Foo Warriors need some help, she will call on the stink aardvark's army to assist them.
- RainbowMane (voiced by Hadley Kay): RainbowMane is the majestic leader of the Twonicorns.
- Vincent Von Growl, a.k.a. "Vinnie", is a bear friend of Yin and Yang. His first official appearance was in the season 2 episode, "Today You Are a Bear". He is an aspiring circus performer, practicing several circus acts such as walking on electric wires as though they were trapeze wires and balancing atop a giant ball. Currently, he is a member of Yin and Yang's Woo Foo Army and has achieved the "Woo Foo Knight In a Little Less Training" rank as of "Yin Yang Who?".
- Chai: A past tiger Woo Foo master, who trained Yo. He was partnered with Ti. Due to his rivalry with Ti, the two were defeated by Eradicus. Their names are a pun on "Tai Chi".
- Ti: A past tiger Woo Foo master, who also trained Yo. She was partnered with Chai. Due to her rivalry with Chai, the two were defeated by Eradicus.
- The Night Master (voiced by David Hemblen): Billed as a "Dark Overlord in an Evil Class All By Himself", the Night Master is a very powerful and dangerous foe who was responsible for the near extinction of Woo Foo by eliminating all of the Woo Foo knights except for Master Yo. The Sensei managed to turn Night Master's army to stone and sent him into hiding for a hundred years until he tricked Yin and Yang into using Woo Foo in order to free his army. The Night Master appears to be a demonic sorcerer bat (as such, he hates light) of some description and has a liking for gothically ostentatious outfits. He frequently communicates with his lackeys by using a hologram. The Night Master is very intelligent, though his plans typically fail because of the stupidity of his minions. In the season one finale, he revealed his master plan: using Master Yo's woo-foo energy to blot out the suns (an idea he actually copied from Carl). Due to the interference by Yin, Yang, Carl, and Roger Jr, only two and a half of the suns were blocked out, but it still gave him enough power to take on the Woo Foo warriors. It wasn't until Yin admitted she was sorry for what she did to Coop that he turned against his boss. While Coop held off the Night Master, Yin, Yang and Yo used their powers to bring back the light, weakening the Night Master badly. Coop then held him in place while Yin blasted the evil creature (and Coop) into a dark dimension, never to return. He is considered to be the actual main villain throughout the series, even though Carl appeared in most of the episodes, while many think that Carl was the main villain since the first season. As revealed in The Pecking Order, he is one of an eternal line of Night Masters alongside Eradicus and an unnamed cobra-like woman. His real name (since "Night Master" is a title) has not yet been revealed. Ever since his defeat, the other villains have been developing their evil in an attempt to become the new Night Master. Utimoose temporarily succeeded in doing so after he found the Amnisulet, but was defeated by Yang and stripped of the title. His lair was still standing after his defeat and many tried in vain to break into it, but only Coop has access to the lair since he absorbed the Night Master's energy. In "Welcome to the Dark Tomorrow", his lair was destroyed after the defeat of Eradicus. He is shown to somehow be alive in "Shadowcluck" selling his old army to Eradicus. It's unknown how he escaped the dark dimension. He is working now on Wrecking Yard. Night Master's appearance is obviously similar to Aku of Samurai Jack fame and Hades from Hercules.
- Flayviour (voiced by David Berm): The fashion obsessed minion to the Night Master. His debut was in The Return of the Night Master. InParty Favors he teams up with G.P. and Charles to crash Coop's "Welcome Back and Thanks For Saving Everyone From Evil By Banishing The Night Master All By Yourself" party to enter The Night Master's lair with Coop's spare key until betrayed by G.P. after becoming Fred.
- Grizzleflavin (voiced by Jonathan Wilson): A gargoyle head who guards The Night Master's lair and seems to have the ability to tell if someone is evil enough to enter. He apparently knows Kraggler. In "Gone-A-Fowl" it is revealed that he knows about "The Dark Tomorrow", which he described to Coop as "dumb Woo Foo name for something, and that it'll be awesome." He is no longer active after the Night Master's castle caved in.
- Dank and Dire (voiced by Damon Papadopoulos): Two shadow creatures that bicker constantly. They are under the employ of the Night Master. After the Night Master was eliminated, they popped up at the Villain picnic. They are similar to Pain and Panic from the film Hercules.
- Carl the Evil Cockroach Wizard (voiced by Jamie Watson): Carl, the Evil Cockroach Wizard (who tends to shout out his name as much as possible and always wants to be called Carl the Evil Cockroach Wizard), continuously schemes to defeat Yin, Yang, Master Yo and the power of the Woo Foo with his insecure genius. It is undoubtedly the greatest enemy of Yin and Yang, but also one of the most pathetic, with Zarnot and Ultimoose. He also lives with his overbearing mother Edna, who is a dragon (it makes no sense as to how they are all related). Carl is always trying to find a way to impress his mother and out-do his brother Herman. Despite his desire to win his mother's love, Carl is resentful and has talked back (usually under his breath), made her cry, and even put a spell on her. And yet, he has been accused of being a mama's boy (obviously by someone who doesn't know him at all). Even though Carl and Herman dislike one another, they have worked together on occasion, making a deadly force against Yin and Yang. His dream was to become so enormous that he would blot out the sun, an idea that Herman and the Night Master stole. He eventually saw someone and got over it. Carl is an anti-thesis to Yin's magical ability and Yang's goofiness. Carl is stronger than Yin and Yang in power, but if someone criticizes him, he's easily distracted. It is revealed in Yin Yang Carl that he could defeat Herman in a fight, if only he used his magic, calling into question why he never has (Yo was in Carl's body, fighting with Carl's powers). Because in the past he has shown desire to get along with Herman (Dojo Alone and Family Day), it could be because he loves his brother. He has an ad on a dating site. In "Creeping with the Enemy," Carl is the only villain not recruited into Eradicus' company Eradicorp cause Ella states that a cockroach working in a coffee shop would not do well for the business.
- Eradicus (voiced by Jonathan Wilson): A mighty Gryphon who is bent on destroying Woo Foo. As revealed in "Welcome To The Dark Tomorrow", he is in fact the first and original Night Master. After his demise (of unknown cause), other beings of darkness took on the mantle of evil he left behind including an unknown snake lady and the bat-creature Yin and Yang faced in season 1. His deceased minions posed as the ghosts of the Woo Foo Elders to manipulate Yang into collecting the items of power needed to revive him. Tricking Yang into throwing the items into the Night Master's fireplace at the stroke of midnight, Eradicus was instantly resurrected (however, the items Yang collected gave him the initially appearance of a clown, but he shape-shifted into a more sinister armoured form). Upon his revival, Eradicus revived his minions and started the Dark Tomorrow (turning everyone good evil and everyone evil good). With the combined abilities of Yin, Yang (empowered with the items given to him by the League of Evil), and Yo, Eradicus was defeated and the Dark Tomorrow was reversed. Despite the destruction of the Night Master's lair during the battle, Eradicus was revealed to still be alive in "The Howl Of The Weenie", where he still plans the destruction of the Woo Foo. In "Creeping With the Enemy," he has established Eradicorp, where most of the villain community is working. In "Yin Yang Who?," it is revealed he loves polka. He appears as the final boss in the online game "Dangerous Comic Book of Dread". Some sources refer to him as Herditious. He is currently in another dimension after being defeated by the Woo Foo warriors.
- Ella Mental (Linda Ballantyne) - A female villain who can read minds. Her name is a play on "elemental." She is the smartest one of Eradicus's minions, though her blunt corrections often get her zapped by Eradicus. Eradicus also forced her into tuba lessons, and can play polka music. In "Creeping with the Enemy," Ella Mental told Eradicus that he excluded Carl from helping out in Eradicorp since a cockroach working in a coffee shop would not do well for the business.
- Indestructo-Bob (Tony Daniels) - A villain who has nearly impenetrable armor and can bowl over nearly anyone. He can be best described as unintelligent. His name is a play on "indestructible." He is also incredibly stupid, and always refers to himself in the third person as "Bob". He also loves pie, and candy, but mainly pie.
- Rubber Chucky (Gerard Butler) - A villain who can stretch himself into any shape and any direction. He loves cracking bad jokes. His name is a portmanteau of the gag toys Rubber Chicken and Rubber Ducky.
- Molecu-Lars (David Berm) - A villain who can shapeshift and regenerate his limbs. His name is a play on "molecular." He only appeared in "Welcome To The Dark Tomorrow" and hasn't been seen since.
- Ultimoose: (voiced by Tony Daniels): Ultimoose is the ultimate Night Master lackey: tough as nails, a master at Moose fighting, and really, really dumb, despite his shortness and strong antlers. He seems to offer work under the Night Master but is merely a dim-witted pawn. He employs the use of his battle cry "HOOH! HAH! HOOH!" usually followed by his antlers shooting out flame in the shape of a square with his name written in flames and is soon defeated by Master Yo and fails to work for the Night Master. Also as an insult, he likes to call people little girls or ladies. He tends to refer to himself in the third person. His outfit and hairstyle are similar to that of the Marvel Comics superhero Wonder Man. He became the new Night Master in Deja Foo, calling himself the Night Mooster. He became regular Ultimoose again after Yang reversed time, found the Amnesulet first, and was aided by the other villains to defeat him. He is no longer considered a true villain by anyone and is considered a danger to himself. It turns out that Ultimoose is the opposite of Yang. He also collects Yang's hair as revealed in "Yin Yang who??"
- Brother Herman (voice by David Berm): Carl's black hearted, sadistic, selfish and evil ant brother, Herman, is a tyrannical ant warrior who rules his kingdom with an iron fist, a diabolical mind, and impeccable table manners. He is also quite the mama's boy. He attempted to take over the world until Master Yo stopped him. Since Herman is allergic to panda fur, he can't take over the world as long as Master Yo is around. He is a college graduate and has a master's degree in pain. It's implied throughout the series that Herman is older than Carl. When he speaks, his voice sounds similar to Gordon Quid from Catscratch, even having something of a Scottish accent. Herman is the anti-thesis to Yang's mighty fighting skills and strength and Yin's brains. Despite Carl's latent desire to get along with him, Herman seems to harbor no love for his brother at all.
- Charles: He is the obedient second-in-command of Brother Herman. His serial number is 8 and he likes long walks on the beach as revealed in "Dictator of the Year". His first solo debut is in Party Favors, when he teams up with G.P. and Flavior to crash Coop's "Welcome Back and Thanks For Saving Everyone From Evil By Banishing The Night Master All By Yourself" party and enter The Night Master's lair with Coop's spare key until betrayed by G.P. after becoming Fr-ped. He is scared of Yang because he always tries to burn him.
- The Ants: Are the Brother Herman's army. Are led by Charles.
- Yuck (voiced by Scott McCord): Yuck, a turquoise-green rabbit with terrible hygiene, is an entity formed from Yin's obsession with control and Yang's aggression. As a disgusting, mutant rabbit, Yuck wants more than anything in the world to be the greatest, most powerful Woo Foo Knight of all time. After he lost his physical form, he was found by the Night Master who built him a robot suit with hands that absorb Woo Foo so he could become real. He dated Yin in disguise and eventually absorbed enough energy to regain his physical form, becoming his own individual being. The rabbit duo defeated him but it's most likely he'll be back. Yuck has shown himself to be quite intelligent in his convoluted schemes to Yin and Yang. In terms of fighting ability he appears to be as formidable as Yin and Yang put together, being able to take on Yo himself. After a mission into Yo to get an ancient Woo Foo weapon, Yin and Yang break his shrink belt and he shrinks uncontrollably to the point where he is no longer visible. However, he returns a Level 2 Woo Foo Knight when the 2 copies of Yin and Yang copies misuse their fooplication charm. He is a Level 2 Woo Foo Knight due to Yin and Yang's title of Level 1 Woo Foo Knights. He can use the same moves as both Yin and Yang, but his favorite move seems to be his own move, Yuck-icane. Using the charm, Yuck created an army of Yin and Yang fooplicates. When Yin destroys the charm to erase the fooplicates, Yuck absorbs their power and becomes Master Yo's level if not more. Unfortunately for Yuck, he also develops a bad case of the hiccups which leaves him unable to control his new powers. He appears to have the power to possess people now as well, as he possessed the Headmaster of 'Camp Magic-Pants'. He later returned, cleaned up and trying to be good, saying that a mysterious monk reformed him (by beating him up). His actions were truly noble until the acts of Yin and Yang, who still didn't trust him, prompted Yuck to return to being evil, as he believed Yin and Yang to want all their worst qualities on display to make them look good. He's similar to Kevin 11 in Ben 10.
- Smoke (voiced by Linda Ballantyne): A hyper-active female who was, supposedly, Yang's girlfriend. It turns out she was using him to fight against her brother, who in turn, captures Yin to fight against Smoke. Yin and Yang eventually capture the two into Smoke's Prison Prism. She reappears in League of Evil as a member of the league alongside Carl, Pondscüm, and The Puffin. This episode reveals her interests in serenity trances (as in meditation) and bathroom tidiness. The following episode, "Stuck" reveals her individual main villain debut. Her Prison Prisms seem to be a parody of Poké-balls, found in the Pokémon series. Her weapon of choice is a gigantic sword that highly resembles the buster sword used by Cloud Strife in Final Fantasy VII. Her style and choice of clothing parodies Sailor Moon (of whom her voice actress voiced in the American dubs of that anime). She also seems to talk really fast and out of sync with her lip movements, further parodying Japanese animation. In the beginning of the episode "A Bad Case of the Buglies", she appears after Yang said Roger Junior hits like a girl. She then kicks him after he admits it was an uncool stereotype phrase.[original research?]
- Mirrors (voiced by Jonathan Wilson): Smoke's rivaled brother. When Smoke uses Yang in the tournament, Mirrors obtains Yin to fight her. Yin and Yang managed to use one of the Forever Friend Prisms to imprison Smoke and Mirrors. Mirrors' hairstyle resembles the hairstyle of Goku from Dragon Ball Z and his interest in roses (exploding roses, to be exact) parodies James from the Pokémon anime. He appears to speak in a way mocking most anime, by stopping and starting at odd intervals. He and his sister's names are a play on words of the phrase "Smoke and Mirrors." He and Smoke are shown to have formed a rapport in order to bring Yin and Yang down together, however it doesn't last long as they begin fighting again.
- Saranoia (voiced by Linda Ballantyne): With an outfit and magic wand for every occasion, Saranoia is a powerful sorceress and mistress of disguise. Deeply sexist and obsessed with female rights, she is determined to free Yin from studying Woo Foo and take in as her disciple. She had a terrible childhood and always thinks men are like her lazy brother Mark and her boy-favoring wizard father, who she mistakes Yo as, just as she mistakes Yang for Mark. She was condemned to an insane asylum from The Truth Hurts to A Bad Case of the Buglies. At this point, she's given up being an evil wizard, has had plastic surgery, and is the spoke person for "Repulsix". When Saranoia takes one of her wands, she takes on a set of characteristics and must abide by the rules of the wand, even if it's against her own will. Unlike the other villains on the show, Saranoia is not pure evil, but she is comically psychotic. She appeared in Deja Foo, attending the super villains picnic with her surgeries removed and uses weaponry, as opposed to wizardry.
- G.P. (Fr-ped) (voiced by Damon Papadopoulos): Gnome flunky to Saranoia. He dislikes his superior, whose insanity he levels. His shapeshifting abilities allow him to blend in with Saranoia's forms. His solo, dark, and aggressive side's debut is in Party Favors when he teams up with Flavior and Charles for his own personal gain of crashing Coop's "Welcome Back and Thanks For Saving Everyone From Evil By Banishing The Night Master All By Yourself" party to enter The Night Master's lair with Coop's spare key. The key breaks, filling G.P. with an enormous amount of evil energy, but not enough to become the new Night Master. He appears in Deja Foo, attending the super villains picnic with his original form that still possesses his evil personality and powers. In Touchy Feelings, he began questioning whether he was good or evil until declaring himself evil until he was tainted by Yang's love emotion, leaving him to question his status once again. At this point, G.P. renames himself Fr-ped, standing for Frightenengly Really Powerful Enraged Doombringer, pronouncing it Fred stating the "P" is silent while other characters refer to him as his name's spelling. His mannerism resembles Norm MacDonald's rendition of Burt Reynolds. His tentative name was Kerlian.
- Zarnot (voiced by Jamie Watson): Once Yang's favorite toy, Zarnot is an evil action figure brought to life by the Lie Fairy. Due to his common failure, Zarnot was forced into a hated toy box by the Night Master. With the Night Master defeated, Zarnot's status was unknown until Deja Foo.
- Pondscüm (voiced by Jonathan Wilson): A street, Swedish, fish inside a robot suit. His being a "Swedish fish" appears to be a reference to Swedish Fish candy. He is obsessed with "bling-bling", and will get it at all costs. However, he truly carries a Swedish accent. He is usually accompanied by his female henchmen, the "Blixens". He reappears in League of Evil as a member of the league. Also he makes good weenies as found in the Evil Villains Picnic in Deja Foo. In Fighting Fooberty, he was revealed to actually be a golden polliwog. Later in the same episode, he underwent a botched nose job that gave him an elephant trunk. At the end of the episode, he returned to his robot suit (after having being kicked out of it by Ying and Yang) in a new terrarium. In "Welcome to the Dark Tomorrow" he was apparently a goldfish again.
- The Blixens: Two attractive female androids that can surround themselves in golden armor that work for Pondscüm, only to quit when they learned he was a tadpole. They rejoined him and gave him a new terrarium for his robot suit.
- Fastidious James Spiffington (voiced by Mark Bowen): A small hamster with a cultured British accent, obsessed with cleanliness and world domination. He is nearly always seen inside a hamster ball that serves as the control center for his robots, mainly his Hamsterbot. He has a habit of drastically increasing his pitch whenever exclaiming certain words, such as "Activate!!". He seems to be a certified attorney.
- Chung Pow Kitties: Are little, furry and adorable kittens (at first glance), but they are really evil and heartless ninjas. They usually wear dresses pink purple and green
- Kraggler (voiced by Tony Daniels): A gargoyle who is about a "bazillion" years old, Kraggler used to be a great and powerful warrior and Master Yo's arch enemy. Reduced to a feeble old man, after he broke the time traveling hour glass he got the power to drain the youth from anything, or give his age to anything. Kraggler is more of a threat and evil when he is young so he needs to write his plans down in case he reverts to his original age. His appearance is also similar to a gargoyle, though for some reason his older version has no legs. This could be because they were broken off, as he is made of stone.
- The Puffin: A gentleman-dressed puffin. He first appeared where he, Carl, Smoke, and Pondscüm ended up sharing an apartment and formed the League of Evil. He is said to have more advantage in the rain which hasn't been demonstrated yet. His dressy appearance is based on The Penguin (and a similar parody of him), although characters in the show stop talking before the connection is made and before lawsuits can be filed. He later appears in "The Secret Life of Possum Panda", The Puffin is revealed the by the enemy of the "Possum Panda" (a parody of Batman), Master Yo's crimefighting alter-ego. In the episode, "The Puffin has placed a deadly ticking bomb somewhere in the city (later revealed to be Master Yo's Reclining Chair).
- Mastermind (voiced by Peter Cugno): An evil mittens-wearing wizard who was a big threat years ago. Now he's just a brain looking for a body to regain his reign of evil. He tried to take over Yang's body, but was eventually defeated. He later returns where he casts a spell to fuse Yang and Carl together until they cooperate. In Roboticus Maximus, he teams-up with Zarnot, Pondscüm, and Fastidious (mainly due to the 3 of them being robotically-themed villains) to destroy Yin & Yang with his Masterbot.
- Badfoot: A purple horse who was known as the enemy that Master Yo couldn't beat. He is supported by his horn section, he dresses like James Brown, and used to carry with him a power item called the Lick-n-Stick. Once a year every year, he come into the city to drain Woo Foo out of Master Yo. When Yin and Yang "fought the funk (even though they had to use it their way)", they managed to aid Master Yo in defeating Badfoot at last, claiming the Lick-n-Stick in the process.He also runs a soft-pretzel factory that Yo deeply enjoyed.
- The Manotaur: (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) A half-man with hairy hooves, but all man (If you count collecting comic books and action figures manly). He is a large man with a bald head who dresses like a city man. His plan was to kidnap all the Two-ni-corns and to shave off all their hair to make a large wig to cover up his really smooth, bald head to get a date with The Womanotaur. When Yin and Yang reach his lair, it's really his house in a cul-de-sac, Yang uses Man Smash, learned from his comicbook hero, U-Dude, and frees the Two-ni-corns. It is revealed throughout the entire episode that he is the only character in the series with five-fingers (noted by his pinky wearing a Pinky Ring) He later appears to challenge Yin and Yang to a lifesized board game to win the dojo, whom Master Yo wasn't able to pay the bills Yin and Yang threw away.
- Boopy Van Ha-Ha Pants: A clown who challenged Yo for the Woo Foo Tie and Suspenders in Gone-A-Fowl.
- Edna: Carl and Herman's mother. Unlike her sons, she doesn't appear as a cockroach or an ant, but as a dragon with rectangle breasts. And a fire-breathing one at that. Edna seems to be always at wits-end with Carl, but she dotes on Herman. While Edna usually seems to at best not care much for Carl, and at worst dislike him, she has occasionally been nice to him (even calling him "Honey" in Too Much Yangformation). She is aware of Carl's desire for her love, and has used it to get him to do things for her, as revealed in An Inconvenient Tooth. She briefly dated Master Yo while under a spell Carl put on her. However, in Yin Yang Carl, it is revealed that she still has a crush on him. Her (either dead or divorced) husband, Carl and Herman's father, has not yet been shown in the series.
- Coop (voiced by Jonathan Wilson): A nerdy chicken who appears to be scared of any threats and has a huge crush on Yin. But because she never returned any of his feelings, Coop joined the Night Master in exchange for the promise to have Yin when the world was taken over. He is a minor villain and he is seen with some of the other villains in the Yin, Yang, Yo intro in season 1. Coop gave the impression of incompetence, but in reality, he had powers and abilities rivaling Yin and Yang's. But in the end, Coop couldn't bring himself to go through with the Night Master's plans and held him in place so Yin and Yang could destroy him. However, like the Night Master, Coop disappeared as well, but returns in The Pecking Order. He was stripped of his Night Master energy that spread across the world, possessing all who ingest it until Coop absorbs a large amount of controlled evil, enough to make him a Night Master. Coop can also enter the Night Master's lair whenever he wants, and was left in charge to take care of his dogs. He has the ability to create a glowing orange-yellow, bird shaped battle aura, which he dubs "Shadow Chicken". While using it, he is powerful enough to defeat even Master Yo. In "Gone-A-Fowl" he starts to lose control of his evil, causing him to become a buff, shades wearing, bad boy version of himself whenever he gets mad, reverting back to his dorky self when made happy. In this form, he gains the ability to infect others with his evil, causing them to become powered up evil versions of themselves, which he demonstrates on a squirrel (John M. Wellnuts), some people who were mocking him, and final: Yin. At first, he only changes when he is enraged, but eventually chooses to stay that way because Yin only likes him when he's a bad boy. He turns Yin evil because she'll only date him when she's evil. However, after Yin is returned to being good, she convinces him to get a hold of himself and he changes back. In "Shadowcluck", Coop decides to help Yin and Yang fight Eradicus by joining their Woo Foo Army. Not only does Coop now have control of the evil that once dominated his personality, he can now use his powers to "combat evil instead of serving evil", which causes Yin fall in love with Coop, again. But the love between Coop and Yin is distracting them from helping the other Woo Foo Warriors fight (not to mention it causes Yang and their allies to barf off-camera, during their various displays of affection). Yang (and the others) try to get Coop and Yin to focus on battling the Eradicus' new army (which he bought from former Night Master at a yard sale), however Yin and Coop just assume Yang is jealous of their relationship. However, when they see Eradicus' Army beating up Yang and their friends, Yin and Coop start feeling guilty about how they have been acting and help Yang defeat Eradicus' Army. He is a member of Yin and Yang's Woo Foo army.
- The Lesson: The Lesson was once a great hero who stopped the two bad habits. When the two bad habits got loose again, The Lesson came to stop them, but the two bad habits explained to him that they had done nothing, and that people were just being lazy on their own. The Lesson then tried to rid people of their bad habits, but when they ignored him he tried to pound the lesson into them, literally. He is slightly evil, he just wants to get people to get rid of their bad habits. His powers include flight and the ability to turn his hands into hammers. He returned where his latest lesson has Yin, Yang, Lina, Melodia, and Dave trapped in a superhero-themed TV show(most of the fake TV show had parodied D.C. characters, the home base was a parody on the teen titans tower).
- The Lie Fairy (voiced by Kathleen Laskey): A fairy like the Tooth Fairy, but, as Yang puts it, "but totally stupid". Appears whenever someone lies excessively like when Yin and Yang lied about Zarnot, she brought Zarnot to life to teach them a lesson. Was last seen at the dojo, saying what Yang wrote on his blog was a lie. She has a power called 'Lie Fairy Fists', which is so weak that it might take you a while to figure out you're being hit. She only appears in 3 episodes.
- Roger the Skelewog: Roger the Skelewog is a vicious warrior from 9 to 5. Being a scary monster is just his job. When a whistle blows, he goes home to his equally fearsome wife, teenaged son Roger Jr. and 5-year-old daughter Tillman and life in the suburbs.
- Mayor Muffin: The goat-like mayor/president of the unnamed town Yin and Yang inhabit. He is often the victim of kidnapping by several of the villains, especially Carl, who nicknames him "Muffin". Even though being saved by Yin and Yang numeral times he is often ungrateful and shows a great amount of condescension over them. He is also very self-serving, a coward, and speaks with a Texan accent.
- Mrs. Skelewog: Roger's shrewish wife, who constantly nags him and bosses him around. She once kicked Roger out of the house.
- Coop's Mother: Coop's very attractive mother, who is often seen enjoying the nightlife. She debuts in The Gig Is Up as an unrevealed member of Pandangerous' groupies. She officially debuts in Party Favors, where it is revealed that she worries about her son's safety around Yin and Yang, giving her the goal to destroy their reputation and improve Coop's. She's very popular among the young male characters, such that they came to the party she was throwing for Coop just to see her. In "Welcome to the Dark Tomorrow" it revealed that she is a publicist. In The Secret Life of Possum Panda, it is revealed she leads a double-life as the female thief, Hot Chick (a parody of Catwoman). She seems to be attracted to Master Yo's vigilante alter-ego, Possum Panda (another obvious parody of Batman). She is seen in "Yin Yang... Who?" forbidding Coop to fight against Eradicus' army and at the end flirts with Ultimoose.
- F.L. Smeffman: Introduced in "Party Favors", he is a small, elf news reporter. As revealed in "Gone-A-Fowl," he hosts a sensational news show named Elf Talking About People More Popular Than You, alongside Nancy O. Delffa. He apparently had a job at a cookie factory (a joke referring to the Keebler elves). He is also known as "F. Elf" or "Felf".
- Nancy O. Delffa (voiced by Nancy O'Dell): F.L. Smeffman's friend and co-host to Elf Talking About People More Popular Than You, where she constantly cuts off Smeffman.
- Tillman: The toddler-aged daughter of Roger the Skelewog.
- Lina's Father: Lina's hardworking aqua-blue farmer Bear/dog father. He first appears in "Beetlemania" and appears mostly in the background alongside his daughter. He also tries to keep Lina away from Yang because of his attraction to her, though this seems to have failed. He is very overproctective of his daughter and threatened to ground her if she fought against Eradicus' army. He appears to be a citizen of Redneckistan.
