The Lyoko Warriors (Team Lyoko)

Ulrich Stern

Ulrich Stern

File:Ulrich 3228.png


 "Who's the dork that pushed me into Sissi's arms?"

The unofficial hero of the show, and the main favorite of fangirls. He is a quiet and shy person by nature, quite the opposite of his best friend, Odd. Headstrong and stubborn, he cares for his friends and would do anything for them. Ulrich is more athletic than academic and it shows when you compare his grades to his sports performance. He attracts the attention of many females of the school, but has obvious feelings for Yumi. He manifests in Lyoko as an unarmored samurai, with the ability to "Triplicate" into three of himself, and Super Speed. His katana can deflect XANA's creatures' energy attacks.

Odd Della Robbia

File:Odd 7278.png


 "That's just the Magical Odd Effect. You see me once and you feel as though you've known me all your life!"

The only extravert of the Team, and an incorrigible smart-aleck. He dresses in flashy, clashing colors, mostly purple and yellow. Though physically petite compared to the rest of the team, he is an adrenaline junkie, just the type to go for extreme sports. Also a passable student; his strengths are in the languages and artistic classes. He's a big flirt who's dated about every girl in his grade (most of them for only a day or two) as well as a few others. He has smuggled his small dog, "Kiwi", into the dormitories. In Lyoko, his avatar is a Cat Boy version of himself, including claws and a tail. He has heightened agility and stamina in this form, and can shoot "Lazer Arrows" from his forearms -- which, for a time, tended to run out of ammo at the worst possible moments. This shortage was resolved in Season 2 at the expense of another of Odd's powers, the "Future Flash" which offered spontaneous visions of the mostly immutable immediate future. This left Odd with the short end of the stick powers-wise, a fact lampshaded in Season 3's "Triple Trouble" when Jérémie tries to give Odd a teleportation ability, but ended up making two clones for him instead, and the clones wind up not disappearing when no longer needed. At least he still has a marginally useful energy shield, granted as part of the Season 2 power realignment.

 Odd: Yes, I'm a braggart, and I love it that way!

Yumi Ishiyama

Yumi Ishiyama

File:Yumi 9774.png


 "Black is my color. Black, like your eye will be if you don't back off!"

The tallest and oldest of the group. A good student, she is a Japanese national at the boarding school, living off-campus with her family. She is one grade above the rest of the Team, which proves sometimes problematic. While she may have feelings for Ulrich, Yumi is exasperated by his inability to articulate his crush. Her virtual form is a geisha with a collapsible razor-edged fan, with which she can deflect energy bolts. The fan is controlled telekinetically, and can be thrown as a ranged weapon, returning to her hand after an attack. Yumi also exhibits telekinetic power over several objects of the Lyoko landscape -- most often boulders in the Mountain or Desert sectors. A running joke among fans is XANA's tendency to single her out for attack.

Jérémie Belpois

Jérémie (Jeremy) Belpois

File:Jeremie 6058.png


 "OK, XANA. What do you have in store for us this time?"

Jérémie is the computer genius whom operates the Supercomputer and allows the interface. He's also the leader of the Team, and shows good tactical skills even under pressure. As the most levelheaded, he keeps the infighting within the group to a minimum. He can even get a bit authoritarian, despite being the youngest. Jérémie is one year younger than Ulrich and Odd, having skipped a grade. He has more than a crush on Aelita, and it's largely this motivation that keeps the Team going in time after time to shut XANA down. Though he has been virtualized twice, this has never been done on camera -- something of a Lampshade Hanging on the second occasion.

Aelita Stones

Aelita (Maya) Stones (Lyoko / Hopper / Schaeffer)

File:Aelita 8678.png


 "And just forget about my past, you think that's easy? You didn't spend ten years of your life as some sort of computer software!"

Aelita started out as the Distressed Damsel in the series. Unlike the other characters, she seemed to have originated on Lyoko, and survived there for years. The first season of the show deals with Jérémie and the Team trying to figure out a way to materialize her into the real world. She originally had two special abilities in Lyoko: she could enter the access towers that XANA uses to interface with the real world, and shut them down, and she had the ability to morph the virtual landscape around her to create walls, rockslides, etc. Starting with Season 3, she was no longer in danger of being killed if losing all her Life Points. She gained the ability to attack with spheres of energy as well, and obtained wings in Season 4 with her new outfit.

William Dunbar

William Dunbar

File:William 3298.png


 "I'm not the kind of guy who likes to steal the show."

A transfer student exiled to Kadic Academy in Season 2 for spamming love notes. His primary function during the first half of his tenure was to act as a Romantic False Lead for Yumi and lampshade Ulrich's inability to spit it out in the process. William's assistance in foiling several of XANA's schemes on the real-world side proved critical late in Season 2 and into Season 3, though, and after he confided to the Team that he was starting to dream about elements of his adventures that should have been erased with the Return to the Past, the Lyoko Warriors reluctantly (but unanimously) took him on as their newest member. It went downhill from there. Mind-controlled by XANA (and stripped of his higher vocabulary in the process), William spends the majority of Season 4 as the Lyoko Warriors' most consistent virtual threat. He gets better, but the show ends two episodes later, and on kind of a harsh note for him.

XANA

XANA (X.A.N.A.)

File:Xana 3851.png


 "NOT LOGICAL! NOT LOGICAL!"

This malevolent A.I. is the main antagonist. Created by Franz Hopper to counter "Project Carthage", he rebelled against his creator and was sealed in the Supercomputer some 10 years before the start of the series. His true motivations are unknown, but he is hostile to humanity, and to Team Lyoko in particular. He regularly attacks the real world through the Lyoko Towers. Being a program, he has no definite shape and manifest through the ever-present logo (or Eye of XANA) and monsters on the Lyoko Sectors. He tries to escape the Supercomputer throughout Season 2 so that the heroes can no longer defeat him by cutting the juice, and after doing so he attempts to conquer the world in Season 4 by creating an army of robots.

  • AI Is a Crapshoot
  • Arch Enemy: To the Lyoko-Warriors and Franz Hopper.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: He partially succeeds in this in season 1 finale by preventing Aelita from being freed from the Supercomputer. Seasons 2 and 3 actually end with him fully reaching his goals (respectively escaping the Supercomputer and destroying Lyoko).
  • Big Bad
  • Character Development: Ironically for a never-seen character, he gets lots of it throughout the series. His goals shift along with time according to the situation, his schemes become more complex, and his power increasing allow for varied and subtler tactics.
  • The Chessmaster: Not as much initially, but as the series progresses, he starts developing more complex schemes.
  • Color Coded for Your Convenience: Red.
  • The Cracker
  • Crazy Prepared: The Lyoko-Warriors are attempting to destroy his Replikas' supercomputers in order to cut down his resources? He has infected hundreds of them all over the world.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: He usually plans everything that can logically be planned, and, when he does make mistake, he learns from it.
  • Enemy Mine: In "Marabounta" with the Lyoko-Warriors.
  • Evil Computer Virus Cannot Comprehend Friendship: in season 1; due to his intelligence being based on pure logic, he was unable to understand why Jérémie would go into the scanners (something that is stated to terrify the young hacker) to save his friends. In later episodes, however, he seems to have grown intelligent enough to correct this deffect.
  • Faceless Eye: His trademark symbol.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: He doesn't even have a body to begin with.
  • Instant AI, Just Add Water
  • Manipulative Bastard: Though he has issues understanding emotions, he is still smart enough to develop various schemes based on emotional manipulation. As the serie progress, he gradually becomes better at it, eventually going near to the Magnificent Bastard level.
  • Master Computer: Seasons 1-2.
  • Noble Demon
    • Hinted in "Marabounta"; after teaming up with the Lyoko-Warriors against the common threat, they expect him to turn against them, but his monsters instead politely bow to them before retreating without any fight.
    • Possibly subverted in that he has no problem betraying Jérémie in their second team-up the next episode.
    • Similarly, in "Ultimatum", when he attempts to blackmail the Lyoko-Warriors into delivering Aelita to him by taking Odd and Yumi as hostages, he doesn't attempts to kill them until it's clear Jérémie refused, and even shows concern with keeping them alive.
    • Also when XANA possessed Jim and attacked Jérémie in "Final Mix", he merely restrained Jérémie when he quite easily could have killed him.
  • Powers That Be
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: The Supercomputer being the Can. Though it only truly imprisons him when you shut it down; when active, it still prevents him from escaping, but not from wreaking havoc.
  • Sliding Scale of Robot Intelligence: Nobel (to maybe Godlike by Season 4).
  • Turned Against His Master
  • Ultimate Evil
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has one toward the end of Season 1, in the episode "Ghost Channel", where the above quote comes from.
  • The Voiceless: With the exception of the parts in "Ghost Channel" where he impersonnate Jérémie and "Franz Hopper" where he seemingly expresses himself through Hopper's clone, we never hear him talking. And even then, it's unclear if it was actually him talking.
  • Xanatos Gambit: Aside from the Incredibly Lame Pun, XANA often pulls out those. And to some extent, any of his plans involving massive damages or witness can be considered as such: even if the Lyoko-Warriors successfully stop his attack, they are forced to use the Return to the past to erase the event, making XANA stronger in the process.


Lyoko Monsters

Lyoko Monsters

File:Monster 8767.png


The dozen or so models of virtual monsters that XANA uses to defend activated towers and other important locations on Lyoko:

  • Guardians (Gardiens) -- Not actually monsters, but force fields designed to trap a victim on Lyoko while XANA confused the heroes with tangentially-related real-world shenanigans. Used twice in Season 1 and shelved afterwards.
  • Kankrelats (Roachsters) -- As close to The Goomba as you'll get from XANA, these mollusk-like critters have a basic design: legs, a laser cannon housing, and little else. They often make up for their lack of individual strength with Zerg Rush tactics; their small size also allow them to hide and act as snipers. The first of two monsters to be fielded in the real world (in "False Start"). Quickly evolved into the Plucky Comic Relief among the monsters with their tendency for being Too Dumb to Live.
  • Frelions (Hornets) -- The Airborne Mooks of Lyoko, looking like giant wasps with ten wings. They fly around, shoot lasers from their stingers, drip acid at close range, and make the Lyoko Warriors suffer for not having a dedicated anti-air weapon.
  • Bloks -- Walking cubes about twice as tall as one of the heroes. The four side faces are marked with Eyes of XANA -- one is the actual weak point, while the other three fire lasers, ice rays, and rings of fire respectively. The ice rays can paralyze the targets or devirtualize them if they're low on Life Points. The fire rings are the least often used, though both Ulrich and Odd got devirtualized by them in "The Secret".
  • Krabes -- These four-legged, lanky six-eyed beasts deliver powerful laser attacks from both their eye arrays and underbellies. They sometimes also try to skewer the heroes with their pointy legs. Krabes are the first monster type to be deployed en masse ("The Chips Are Down", in which a line of several dozen guards the tower) and the second (and final) type to be deployed on Earth ("A Bad Turn").
  • Megatanks (Mégatanks) -- A deathly powerful area denial weapon, these things consist of an arc-laser emitter cocooned within two indestructible shell halves which expand and contract to allow firing. Their attacks are arguably powerful enough to destroy Towers with enough concentrated fire (as attempted during Aelita's first transfer out of Lyoko in "Code: Earth"), but can be resisted with a couple of the Lyoko Warriors' weapons. They also move very fast by closing their shell and rolling on themselves, not hesitating to crush any unlucky hero in their path.
  • Tarantulas (Tarentules) -- XANA's apparent first attempt at Min-Maxing its monsters: they have more Life Points than any other monster barring the Scyphozoa (as of its Season 2 rollout), the Eye of XANA weak point is small and located at the back of the head, and their mobility is largely sacrificed for high-speed firing of the laser cannon stubs on their arms.
  • Scyphozoa (la Méduse) -- XANA's first Dragon, looking like a levitating giant jellyfish. It eschews direct attacking for wrapping its tentacles around Aelita and attempting to crack her Neuro Vault open. Other notable targets include Yumi (to force a variant "Friend or Idol?" Decision by making Aelita transfer her own materialization code to replace Yumi's deleted version), William (to make him the new Dragon), and the Skidbladnir (to sabotage its shield regeneration). It normally retreated when it was rendered unable to gain what it came for, only having been destroyed once in "The Lake" when it was overloaded, but XANA just made another.
  • Creepers (Rampants) -- Worm-like monstrosities that inhabit Sector 5 exclusively, where they Wall Crawl at will. The unique laser cannon in their mouth is more powerful on average than those of other monsters. Notable for being one of the few enemies that explodes in a large quantity of Ludicrous Gibs.
  • Mantas -- White-and-blue manta rays that "swim" through the air and shriek like hawks. As if XANA didn't have enough air superiority, these Giant Flyers hatch from the Celestial Dome surrounding Sector 5 and can deploy practically everywhere to shoot the regular lasers or poop deadly multi-terrain mines. William gains a black one as steed when under XANA's servitude.
  • Kongres -- Eel-like monsters that antagonize the heroes in the Digital Sea. Have More Teeth Than the Osmond Family.
  • Sharks (Rekins) -- Shark-like monsters also native to the Digital Sea. Fire torpedoes instead of lasers.
  • Kalamar -- Only seen once in the Digital Sea, it attempted to drill through the Skid's hull.
  • Kolossus (le Kolosse) -- XANA's last-minute Giant Mook, appearing as a towering Lava Golem with a blade for a left arm. It foregos standard lasers to crush the Lyoko Warriors and the Skidbladnir with sheer physical power. It is harder to kill than most monsters, having two Eyes of XANA that must be hit simultaneously to destroy it.
  • Video-game monsters -- The Volcano Replika and other locales in the Code Lyoko video games give XANA several extra additions to its bestiary, from lanky Insekts to hardy Volcanoids to the first DS game's Final Exam Boss Scorpion.


Specters

Specters

File:Specter 9774.png


Artificial smoke-beings created by XANA through an activated Lyoko Tower to cause havoc on Earth. At first they were only able to take control of inanimate objects or machines, but as XANA gained in power they started taking over animals or even humans. The possessed ones (often labeled as "XANAfied") can be recognized by the XANA symbol in their eyes. The Specters confer them some special powers, like Nigh Invulnerability (they can still be knocked out if taken by surprise, and are vulnerable to electricity or EMP), Super Strength, Wall Crawl, Shock and Awe... and others as the series progresses. Alternatively they can control many animals or people, but then fewer special powers are gained because XANA's energy is diluted.


Polymorphic Clones

Polymorphic Clones

File:Awwwww 1449.png


An advanced form of XANA's Specters, the Polymorphic Clones have no need for a host and can take a human shape by themselves. They can copy many appearances, most often of the Lyoko Warriors or some adult to sow division or attack by surprise. They have the same powers as a XANAfied human with the addition of shapeshifting. They solely appeared on Earth, with the exception of one going to Lyoko through a scanner by replacing Odd in the episode "Revelation". Jérémie mastered the technology in Season 4 to create a short-lived clone of himself, and then a replacement for William. Both of Jérémie's clones, however, have a strange programming flaw: their personalities are partially inverted compared to the originals. The Jérémie Clone is an insufferable Odd-like Kidanova, while the William Clone is dumb as a sack of bricks.


Kadic Academy

Élisabeth "Sissi" Delmas

Élisabeth (Elizabeth) "Sissi" Delmas

File:Sissi 6286.png


 "I'm the star, the diva of the school!"

Daughter of Kadic Academy principal Jean-Pierre Delmas. She can have practically any boy at school -- but she wants Ulrich, who'd rather have nothing to do with her despite (or maybe because) they'd known each other since childhood. To separate Ulrich from Yumi (not that they're actually together, honest), Sissi makes a variety of attempts to undermine the bonds of friendship between the Lyoko Warriors. These often manifest as attempts to administratively separate them through her power as a one-girl Absurdly Powerful Student Council or the use of blackmail material to buy her way into the group. Either way, she has the potential to sow a greater division than XANA himself. The prequel two-parter "XANA Awakens" reveals that she had initially been in on the Lyoko Warriors' secret, but her memories of the Supercomputer's activation were wiped with a RTTP because she notified her father due to thinking her friends were in danger and a misunderstanding of betrayal occured. Hints dropped from late Season 2 and through Season 4 seem to reinforce Fanon that Sissi could be perfectly content with Odd -- so long as she doesn't realize it's a Bohemian like him that she connects with.


Jim Moralès

Jim Moralès

File:Jimbo 4669.png


 "Actually, I'd be glad to talk about it, but I don't have the time!"

The Gym teacher and dormitory supervisor at Kadic Academy. A bit overweight and prone to speeches full of redundancies and malapropisms, he's most often the comic relief. But when things get dangerous he can prove extremely courageous and fiercely protective of the children. Jim is sometimes the butt of the students' practical jokes, and as a result can be overly severe toward them. He's very suspicious of Team Lyoko, and ends up discovering the Factory several times, to have his memory erased by the Returns to the Past. Starting with Season 2, whenever appropriate to the situation, his shtick is to mention one of the many jobs or hobbies he's supposed to have done in the past, from sewer worker to astronaut.... Though some of these might be true, most are probably wild exaggerations, as suggested in the episode named for his Catch Phrase.


Hiroki Ishiyama

Hiroki Ishiyama

File:Hiroki 9472.png


 "YUUUUMIII, your boyfriend is here!"

Yumi's younger brother, appearing in Season 2 and joining the 6th grade at Kadic at the start of Season 3. He shows some hero-worship toward Ulrich, and constantly hounds his sister to date the Stern boy and admit her feelings for him. A bit of a crook, he often blackmails Yumi into doing his homework in exchange for not tattling to their parents when she's out saving the world. Unwittingly tagging along in some of XANA's attacks, he tends to be a dangerous distraction (in "A Bad Turn"), but also shows some useful skills (like picking locks in "Hot Shower"). He never keeps memories of this thanks to the Returns to the Past, though.


Franz Hopper

Franz Hopper / Waldo Schaeffer

Aelita's father, and the creator of the Supercomputer, Lyoko and XANA. His real name is Waldo Schaeffer. Also a former Science teacher at Kadic Academy.

  • Big Good
  • Color Coded for Your Convenience: White.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Allows himself to be killed by Mantas while he diverts enough power to the Supercomputer to launch the Anti-XANA Program.
  • Mad Scientist: He built the Supercomputer, Lyoko and XANA on his own.
  • The Obi-Wan: He serves this function to Jérémie, helping him to refine his programming and giving him data and better weapons with which to fight XANA.
  • Opaque Nerd Glasses
  • Papa Wolf: And XANA knows it.
  • The Professor
  • Properly Paranoid: He suspected agents were following him while he was working on the Supercomputer. He was right.
  • Transhuman Aliens: Hopper is permanently virtualized into Lyoko, and his avatar is a brilliant ball of light, rather than a humanoid like the other Lyoko Warriors.
  • The Voiceless: While his voice is heard on screen, it's always either in a flashback or a XANA trick. Hopper himself is never heard to speak.
