Dr. Slicer

  • A Nazi by Any Other Name
  • Knight of Cerebus: His episode is one of the darkest episodes of the series and every scene he appears in takes a darker turn. Not to mention, that unlike all other antagonists, his actions are played seriously and he is downright cruel (calling TJ sappy boy, just because he showed emotion and humilliated him in front of the school) and every other characters fear him, even TJ, who normally stands up to evils of adults.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Despite appearing in one episode, he is the cruelest character in the entire series and is one of few antagonists of the series that can be called truly evil.
  • Sadist Teacher: Put emphasis on sadist part.
