Loading up the crazy man and the octopus into his van, he was soon accosted by the octopus (through actions of the hero) and crashed in a fiery explosion. Swearing to take vengeance upon all octopi, he shed his octopus stealth suit and eventually donned the flounder costume, becoming The Flounder. Through his actions, and the interference of the hero, one of his taser guns brought about the creation of Thunderpus. Currently his Flounder Costume was damaged beyond repair, and he has entered a temporary identity crisis.
- The Librarian (also known as The Ugly Librarian)
One of the survivors of the octopi threat, the librarian hid in the library where she met Flounder Man who gave her an octopus mask, which she quickly wore. Soon after Flounder Man and Angler Man left, Thunderpus and his evil octopi brethren showed up in the library with Thunderpus starting to teach the art of fusion. The Librarian was safe and unnoticed with her octopus mask disguise, for the time being.
An octopus fused with fire that kills Angler Man, only to later be beaten and absorbed by a revived Angler Man.
In life, Wimp-a-pus was a failed fusion between an octopus and a trivia game. In death, however, Wimp-a-pus serves as a guardian to the fabric of the universe and of death itself. Using Flounder Man's Evil-o-Meter to determine worthiness for reincarnation/revival, he sends Angler Man to a parallel universe in order to do something good in his life. After Angler Man's original universe is destroyed, he rebuilds it from scratch.
