Nate: No challenge is too big, no mission too small for the fearless leader of the Super Wicked Extreme Emergency Team. His in-depth knowledge of science fiction might have been considered useless under normal circumstances, but now that aliens are running around town, Nate's the go-to guy! He's not just the glue that keeps S.W.E.E.T together – his epic speeches keep the gang motivated. He is voiced by Al Mukadam.

Briiian: Briiian is a mind of a more militant nature. Whereas most other Brainlings might not see Nate and his friends as immediate threats, Briiian has his mind set on finding an imprisoning the kids! He is voiced by Dan Chameroy.

Emperor Brainlius III: Emperor Brainlius III comes from a long line of glorious universe conquering emperors... but the lineage isn't quite what it once was. And far from his glorious ancestors, Brainlus III puts the pursuit of party before all else! He is voiced by Seán Cullen.

Jumbo Ninja: The large yet agile member of S.W.E.E.T. His origins might be a mystery and he does not speak but Jumbo Ninja's not one for sitting on his bumper! With his stealthy moves and super combat skills Jumbo Ninja is ready for some Brainling bashing! But perhaps the most important thing about Jumbo Ninja is that he's more than the muscle of S.W.E.E.T he is also that of a loyal friend.

Turret: S.W.E.E.T.'s resident gear head, Turret loves coming up with new gadgets! While Louis' inventions are of a more convenient nature, Turret's all about offense! She loves diving head-first into adventure and is the first to jump into dangerous missions. But don't let the tough girl shtick fool you; she's the kid who misses her parents the most, but would never openly admit it! She is voiced by Stacey DePass.

Scoop: Loud, outgoing, and just a tad ditzy, Scoop was the head of the school newspaper before the alien invasion took place. Now she does her best to keep the kids informed on the latest headlines, but when news is slow, she isn't above putting a sensationalist spin on things! She is voiced by Barbara Mamabolo.

Shakes: Shakes is Nate's best friend and one of the few that believed Nate's wild theories. He eats a lot of sugar and as a result, has a permanent sugar rush. But as the team cook, Shakes had to learn to cook with ingredients other than candy. He prefers the safety of the Swell Mart to the action and adventure of the city, and it's very rare that Nate manages to drag him along on adventures. He is voiced by Rob Tinkler.

Louis: The team's resident engineer, Louis' inventions and gadgets make life in the Swell Mart as cushy as possible. He's responsible for maintaining the base's communication systems, and even had the team install w ebcams all over town to keep tabs on Brainling activity! Surprisingly, Louis is a secret Casanova and with a flick of a switch, his lab transforms into a palace of romance! He is voiced by Ryan Cooley.

Lily: Nate's younger sister and the youngest member of S.W.E.ET., Lily's adorable exterior might fool you, but she's actually one tough-as-nails toddler! Lily's insightful comments often simplify her bro's overly-complicated plans. She may be young, but she also has the amazing ability to decipher "baby talk" when the team bumps into roving bands of tribal toddlers! She is voiced by Brianna D'Aguanno.

Teriyaki : Louis's pet and the smallest member of S.W.E.E.T., he may look like a turtle,but he is actually whatever Louis needs to complete whatever task Nate needs for him to complete! From an scanner to a hoverbike useful for reaching a Brainling blimp. Teriyaki helps Louis in any way possible. So although Teriyaki may be small if you underestimate him watch out!
