In this appearance, she is credited as a Barbie Countess; in her second appearance, appearing in CB.VI as the Doctor who attempted to treat the late Queen Lucy, no mention of nobility is made, although her clothes and accent are identical and she is intended to be the same character. Her most recent appearance is in CB.XII, attending a Senate meeting in which she asks if the Thunder Stone can be used to reimprison Kronos.

Seen to be a political opponent of Colin in CB.III, Colin attempts to have him killed in CB.IV but fails, with the Chancellor demonstrating impressive fighting skills by killing three elite soldiers, after which he calls together an Emergency Senate and leads the effort to resist Colin's coup. He also appears in CB.VI helping Cool Barbie to find out who killed Queen Lucy, and in CB.VII he attends the unveiling of the reverse-engineered Dalek. In the Moonita minisode, he is shown to have been with Queen Emily II when she was killed by the Troll Leader, whom he then charges at in anger before the latter teleports away; the Chancellor is later present at Moonita's coronation as Emily's successor, and accompanies her on a tour of the kingdom in CB.IX. Upon the hospitalization of Moonita between CB.X and CB.XI, the Chancellor is appointed the new monarch of the toys by Xeaphon as King Yellow Bear, and in CB.XI and CB.XII has to deal with the Land coming under attack from a Scourgeand from Kronos respectively.

*First appearance: ''Cool Barbie II - Return of the Champion'' (2009)
*Last appearance: ''Cool Barbie XI XII - InfiltrationA Last Chance'' (20162017)Colin is a power-hungry, scheming member of Doll royalty. Having arranged to have his mother Queen Emily kidnapped and his step-father King Ken II disabled, he steadily gains power in the Land until by CB.IV he is able to launch a military revolution. Although he temporarily installs a military dictatorship over the land and proclaims himself Emperor Colin, he is defeated by Xeaphon, Moonita, and the defection of the First Army, and exiled into the Garden along with a few loyal followers. He successfully arranges for his successor Queen Lucy to be assassinated in CB.VI, but fails in his overall goal to have Corporal Barbie also killed. It transpires in CB.VIII that while in exile he had arranged for Uranus to invade Earth, which gives Colin a chance to briefly take power again under Wisealise. After Wisealise's death, Colin and his followers teleport away, and in the Colin minisode they teleport to the Scourge home-planet after months on the run only to come under attack; in CB.IX, the Golden Arrow states his belief that Colin was killed. However, it is revealed in CB.XI that Colin had been captured by the Scourge, and is tricked by them into attempting to set off a planet-destroying explosion by modifying Xeaphon's laser cannon with Scourge technology. When he is made aware that he will inadvertently destroy himself, he teleports back to the Scourge, who pledge to provide him with a means to actually conquer Earth.He then returns in CB.XII and uses Scourge technology to free Kronos, who grants him magical power.However, he is defeated by Xeaphon and imprisoned in the Cryogenic Research Prison along with his remaining followers.
===Corporal (Cool) Barbie===
[[File:CoolBarbie.jpg|thumb|right|120px|Corporal Barbie in her original body (left, CB.VII) and in Moonita's (right, CB.VIII)]]
*First appearance: ''Cool Barbie I - Fallen from the Sky'' (2009)
*Last appearance: ''Cool Barbie XI XII - InfiltrationA Last Chance'' (20162017)
Cool Barbie (known as Corporal Barbie from CB.V onwards) is the eponymous main character of the series.
The first three episodes deal with her interactions with Bubbles. After helping to thwart Colin's uprising in CB.IV, she joins Spectrum in CB.V and is thereafter known as Corporal Barbie. At the end of CB.VIII, Corporal Barbie switches bodies with Moonita after the two of them interfere with a powerful magical weapon to successfully thwart Wisealise's plans, and held a position with Xeaphon at NETDOF. During her time at NETDOF, Corporal Barbie is teleported to the Elven Emperor during CB.X to ask his help in defending the planet from the Scourge. Between CB.X and CB.XI, Corporal Barbie and Moonita are switched back, with the Corporal returning to her role as a Spectrum agent. She retains some sort of psychic connection with the Elven Emperor, receiving a telepathic message from him during CB.XI after he prevents the annihilation of the planet by a sabotaged laser cannon, and receiving dreams and visions from him during CB.XII.
Despite being the main character, remarkably little has been revealed of Corporal Barbie's background.
The Troll Leader is the leader and the largest of three troll followers of Colin that he introduce into the Doll Senate at the start of CB.IV to help him seize power. He wears wizard's robes and carries a wand, and like the other trolls can use magic; in CB.VIII, his hair is revealed to be a wig (after being shot off by a soldier), and he appears without it in the Colin minisode.
In CB.IV, Colin blackmails the Doll Senate into making the Troll Leader the new Minister of Defence. In his new position, the Troll Leader orders the Third Army on a pointless mission in the Garden to make it safe for Colin to begin his uprising, after which he orders the First Army and Golden Arrows to secure the house. When Colin's coup is defeated, the Troll Leader is exiled along with Colin's other supporters into the Garden. He is seen at the start of CB.VI in the Garden using his magical powers to defend Colin against other exiles whom he had previously banished when in power, and . He accompanies Colin during the events of CB.VIII, unsuccessfully attempting to order his former troops to free Bubbles (instead done by Wisealise), and is shown in the first of the 2015 minisodes to have then successfully killed Emily II, teleporting away when confronted by the Chancellor. In the Colin minisode, the Troll Leader briefly meets up with Colin and his other followers while they are on the run, and is given a mission to perform as part of a "back-up plan".
===Troll 1===
[[File:Trolls.jpg|thumb|right|150px|Trolls 1 (right) and 2 (left) in CB.IV]]
*First appearance: ''Cool Barbie IV - The Uprising'' (2009)
*Last appearance: ''Cool Barbie XI XII - InfiltrationA Last Chance'' (2016)Troll 1 was introduced along with two other troll dolls into the Doll Senate by Colin at the start of CB.IV to help him seize power. Troll 1 has orange hair, and like the other trolls can use magic. He helps Colin during the Uprising, confining the Protectors of the Realm and attacking the Chancellor, but teleports away to an unknown location once it is clear that the uprising was about to be quashed. Although Colin is initially angry with him for escaping like this, it is revealed in CB.VIII that Troll 1 had teleported to Uranus to plan the events of that episode (the scene at the end of CB.IV is intended to be the troll Troll arriving back on Earth along with a Uranian). He accompanies Colin during the events of CB.VIII, and later teleports with him and his other followers to the Scourge home planet in the Colin minisode. The Troll is captured by the Scourge along with Colin and the Golden Arrow(headband), and in CB.XI accompanies them as they try to conquer the world by using a modified laser cannon, teleporting them away when it is revealed that the Scourge have sabotaged it so it will destroy the planet upon being used. They return to the Land in CB.XII to free Kronos, but are imprisoned in the Cryogenic Research Prison when defeated by Xeaphon.
===Troll 2===
Troll 2 was introduced along with two other troll dolls into the Doll Senate by Colin at the start of CB.IV to help him seize power. Troll 2 had yellow hair, and like the other trolls could use magic. After helping Colin during the Uprising - by confining the Protectors of the Realm and summoning the second giant - he is exiled to the Garden along with Colin and his other followers when it is quashed. In CB.VI, he infiltrates the Land and assassinates Queen Lucy on Colin's orders to lure Corporal Barbie into the Garden, but fails to kill Corporal Barbie before she escapes, teleporting with Colin and the Golden Arrow to an unknown location at the end of CB.VI when they are confronted by a Spectrum helicopter. Troll 2 is later seen with the Captain of the Golden Arrows and Wisealise celebrating the summoning of the Uranian fleet at the end of CB.VII. He accompanies Colin during the events of CB.VIII, and later casts the spell which teleports Colin and his followers to the Scourge home planet in the Colin minisode, where he is killed on-screen.
{{WIP}}*The '''Golden Arrow(headband)''', when used in the singular, usually refers to is an Action Man who is a member of the Golden Arrows and a close follower of Colin - ; his real name is not known. He took part in the Uprising and was exiled into the Garden in CB.IV, and helped with Colin's ultimately unsuccessful plot to kill Corporal Barbie before teleporting away with Colin and Troll 2 in CB.VI. He accompanies Colin during the events of CB.VIII and the third of the 2015 minisodes. Captured along with Colin and Troll 2 while on the Scourge home planet, he accompanies them both during the events of CB.XI and CB.XII, being imprisoned with them in the Cryogenic Research Prison at the end of the latter. *Another The '''Golden Arrow(leather jacket)''' features prominently in CB.IX. Also an One of the Action Man follower followers of Colin, he accompanies him to the Scourge home-world in the third of the 2015 minisodes, and eventually escapes to Earth to warn Xeaphon that the Scourge are planning an invasion. He is killed by the Mysteron after refusing to de-activate his gun, onto which he had fused Scourge technology.*The '''Scientist''' was a Playmobile figure employed at the Cryogenic Research Prison. At the end of CB.II, he is ordered by Colin to reverse-engineer weaponry from Bubbles' natural defence mechanisms. However, when he begins experimenting ("Project Tesla") on Bubbles at the start of CB.III, Bubbles escapes, killing the Scientist and two guards.
===Minor characters===
*'''Queen Emily I''' was the monarch of the toys before February 2007, when she was abducted by a Giant on her son Colin's orders (CB.IV) so that he could gain power. It is not specified whether she ruled alongside King Ken II, or whether he was merely her consort, but upon her abduction he became sole monarch.
*'''Queen Lucy''' is not seen onscreen, but is mentioned in CB.IV, VI, and VIII. The successor of her step-father King Ken II as monarch of the toys after Colin's uprising in CB.IV, her assassination at the start of CB.VI by Troll 2 forms the main plotline for that episode. She is described as the "estranged" sister of Colin, presumably having been banished or imprisoned by him before she became Queen to remove any threat to his claims to power. She is succeeded as monarch by her step-sister Emily II.
*The '''Scientist''' was a Playmobile figure employed at the Cryogenic Research Prison. At the end of CB.II, he is ordered by Colin to reverse-engineer weaponry from Bubbles' natural defence mechanisms.

*'''Sophie''' is a Barbie who is a friend of Cool Barbie, and accompanies her to what is intended to be a holiday in CB.III before being attacked by Bubbles and the Dalek. Despite being referred to as Cool Barbie's "best friend", CB.III is the only episode in which Sophie has so far been seen or even mentioned.
*The '''Teacher''' is a doll who teaches a class of toys in CB.IX, during which his school is visited by Moonita.
==Humans==
===Commander XeaphonXVIII===
[[File:Xeaphon.png|thumb|right|90px|Xeaphon in his NETDOF office in the Xeaphon minisode]]
*First appearance: ''Cool Barbie IV - The Uprising'' (2009)
*Last appearance: ''Cool Barbie X XII - War in the SkyA Last Chance'' (2016)Xeaphon XVIII is the main protector of the toys of the Land. Played by [[Jonathan I, Emperor of Austenasia|HIM Emperor Jonathan I]], he first appears in CB.IV, playing a minor role in the introduction when helping to repel a burglar, and later fighting off Colin's second hired "giant" after being locked out of and subsequently let back into the house by the shifting loyalties of the First Army. Xeaphon holds the rank of Commander in NETDOF, and was previously an officer of the organisation's predecessor ET Defensive Force. In both CB.IV and CB.VI, it is established that he appoints the monarch of the toys - at the end of CB.VII, he helps Queen Emily II and the anti-war protesters reach an agreement by founding the new land of [[Crepundia]], and in the first of the 2015 minisodes he crowns Moonita the new queen of the Land. Xeaphon features prominently in CB.VIII, organising the defence of the Land against the Uranians and Wisealise, and in the second of the 2015 minisodes he obtains the Staff of Forest Elves to help him guard the Titans' prisons. He now works at NETDOF, and helps organise the defence of Earth against the Scourge during CB.X. As explained in CB.XI, he uses the Staff of Forest Elves offscreen in an attempt to switch back Moonita and Corporal Barbie into their original bodies; however, although the process is successful for Corporal Barbie, Moonita enters into a coma, and eventually dies off-screen during CB.XII. Despite this personal loss, Xeaphon goes back to the Land and defeats Kronos and Colin.
===Ken the Elder===
*First appearance: ''Cool Barbie IV - The Uprising'' (2009)
*Last appearance: ''Cool Barbie IX - Last of the Mysterons'' (2015)
Moonita is Xeaphon's sister, and governs the toys of the Land along with him. Played by [[Crown Princess Caroline of Austenasia|HIH Crown Princess Caroline]], she first appears at the end of CB.IV, helping Xeaphon to drive off Colin's "giant" and suppress the uprising. She also appears at the start of CB.VII, asking Corporal Barbie to supervise the unveiling of the land's new "superweapon" (the reverse-engineered Dalek), and most prominently features in CB.VIII, helping Xeaphon defend the Land against the Uranians and Wisealise, and at the end of which she switches bodies with Corporal Barbie after the two of them interfere with a powerful magical weapon to successfully thwart Wisealise's plans. In the first of the 2015 minisodes, Moonita in her new Barbie body is crowned the new Queen of the toys by Xeaphon, and is temporarily abducted by a Golden Arrow in CB.IX. At the start of CB.XI, the Newsreader reports that Moonita has switched bodies back with Corporal Barbie, but is now unconscious in hospital; she later dies off-screen in CB.XII.
===Supreme Allied Commander===
*The '''NATO Worker''' is an employee of the Supreme Allied Commander. Played by [[Joseph, Prince of Copan|Sir Joseph Francis]], he appears in CB.I informing the Supreme Allied Commander of the movements of Bubble's spaceship.
*The '''President of the UN Security Council''', played by D. Forty, addresses the Uranian General via radio in CB.VIII, refusing to surrender the planet to Uranus. Although credited simply as "Security Council President", Mr. Forty's performance was intended to imitate [[w:Mark Lyall Grant|Sir Mark Lyall Grant]], a British diplomat who served as [[w:President of the United Nations Security Council|President of the United Nations Security Council]] during August 2014, CB.VIII being published on 1 September of that year.
*'''Lord Xeaphon VII''' is an ancestor of Xeaphon, the builder and namesake of the Land, and the mage who originally defeated and imprisoned the Titans. In the introductory scene of CB.XII, he is seen in 1291 writing a letter having just defeated the Dalek, stressing that the Titans must never be allowed to escape their prisons.
==Aliens==
*First appearance: ''Cool Barbie III - Prisoners Freed'' (2009)
*Last appearance: ''Cool Barbie VIII - Plan of the Scourge'' (2014)
The Dalek (appropriated from the [[w:Dalek|Doctor Who antagonist of the same name]]) is an alien that was imprisoned under the Garden by one of Xeaphon's ancestorsVII in 1291, and freed by Bubbles in CB.III to help him get revenge on Earth. It shows signs of battle damage when it first appears (most notably, its eye-stalk is missing). It is learnt from CB.III and CB.IV that there had been a toy fortress defending the entrance to the Dalek's prison, but this was destroyed by Colin, who planned to free the Dalek to help him seize power. The Dalek was killed at the end of CB.III by Edd, with its body salvaged by the government. In CB.VII, Queen Emily II unveils the Dalek as a "superweapon" to defend the land, explaining that the Dalek has been reverse-engineered and the organism inside replaced with a device remotely controlled by her - by now, the Dalek is seen to be a lot more damaged than previously due to its battle with Edd and the work of the toy engineers, as it has numerous cracks and scratches, is missing its plunger, and has a large amount of tape holding parts of it together. It is seen that the Dalek can also be used as a form of tank after having been reverse-engineered, as a soldier from the Royal Army uses it to fire on rioters. The Dalek is seen in CB.VIII guarding the main door to the house during the Uranian invasion, but does not fire on the spaceship which comes through, with Xeaphon by that point having been overthrown by Wisealise. ===Kronos===[[File:Kronos.jpg|thumb|right|110px|Kronos in CB.XII]]*First appearance: ''Cool Barbie XII - A Last Chance'' (2017)*Last appearance: ''Cool Barbie XII - A Last Chance'' (2017)'''Kronos''', referred to by his supporters as the "Timeless Lord", is leader of the Titans, incredibly powerful beings which were defeated by Xeaphon VII and imprisoned underneath what is now the Land. Although they are referred to as "spirits" by the Supreme Allied Commander in the Xeaphon minisode, the Titans are extradimensional (and so technically alien) in origin. Kronos is briefly freed by Colin in CB.XII, in the hope that he will conquer the world on behalf of the Scourge. However, he gets little chance to demonstrate his power (beyond breaching the Land's interior forcefield with a mere wave of his hand; in CB.VIII, it took a sustained attack from Wisealise using powerful alien technology to break through), as he is soon re-imprisoned by Xeaphon XVIII, who uses the Thunder Stone and the Staff of Forest Elves.
===Scourge Prince===
*The '''Mysteron''' appears only in CB.IX. Fleeing the Uranian conquest of Mars, it arrives on Earth offering to give NETDOF technology with which they can take the Moon and Mars from Uranian control. However, before it gets a chance to do this, it is fatally shot while trying to force the Golden Arrow in that episode to deactivate his gun.
*A '''Scourge''' is featured in CB.XI, attacking the Land's military as a diversion for Colin to set up the sabotaged laser cannon technology, and teleporting away when the cannon is activated.
*The '''Titans''' are briefly mentioned in CB.VIII and IX, and the Xeaphon minisode. Wisealise - who describes the Titans as "several very powerful beings" imprisoned underneath the garden - plans to free them in CB.VIII and drain their power to become invincible, later naming one of them as the Flame Lord. Xeaphon mentions that the Dalek was considered to be one of them before being released. In the Xeaphon minisode, the Supreme Allied Commander refers to those still imprisoned as "spirits".
*The '''Uranian''' from CB.V was the sole occupant of the Moonbase, a Uranian scientific facility based on the Moon. Captured by Sergeant Grey and Corporal Barbie in CB.V, he is teleported back to Earth, where he breaks free from Spectrum custody and kills at least one guard before being killed by Sergeant Grey. The relative ease with which he was killed serves as a useful comparison with Bubbles to demonstrate just how powerful the latter is.
*The '''Uranian Bodyguard''' plays a minor role in CB.VIII, accompanying the Uranian General as he comes to the Land to retrieve Bubbles.
==Elves==
*The '''Elven Emperor''' is the leader of the High Elves. First appearing in CB.X, Corporal Barbie goes to him to beg for his help against the invading Scourge. Millenia old, and claiming to be "the greatest mage alive", he destroys the Scourge armada by using the Earth's magical field as a weapon. In the brief time he is on-screen he demonstrates several magical abilities; he reads Corporal Barbie's mind, and with a mere wave of his hand both forces her to kneel and reverses the teleport by which she arrived. He appears again maintains a psychic connection with Corporal Barbie, sending her visions in CB.XIand CB.XII; the first time, he informs her that it was he who remotely preventing a prevented the planet-destroying explosion , and telepathically informing Corporal Barbie of his involvementthe second time he warns her that she must kill Colin to avert future catastrophe.
*The '''Forest Elf''' briefly appears in the Xeaphon minisode. Played by Lady Jennifer, she presents Xeaphon the Staff of Forest Elves so as to help him better guard the Titans' prison entrances, instructing him to use it wisely.
