IfancyThe Intangible Fancy
What We Know: The Intangible Fancy is a criminal who presumably can alter his state of matter. He’s closely modeled after the Shadow Thief, enemy of D.C. Comics’ Hawkman, and most likely marks the only time anyone has bothered to parody the Shadow Thief.
Great Name or Great Costume: Great Name.
Likelihood of Reappearance: Low. Like Power Plug (see below), Intangible Fancy has helped fill the background in a few Venture Brothers episodes, but there’s no indication the character will be developed any further. Nor should he be, probably.

PlugThe Power Plug
What We Know:
Very little. Power Plug typically appears when a group of villains is seen doing unvillainlike things, such as attending the Venture family yard sale.
Great Name or Great Costume: Great Costume.
Likelihood of Reappearance: Medium. The Power Plug is and will remain a background character, but has a better outfit than any other background characters.

TrklsTruckules
What We Know:
Either a demi-god with the front of a tractor for a torso or a strongman named after a demi-god with the front of a tractor for a torso. Used to employ Doctor Girlfriend.
Great Name or Great Costume: Both.
Likelihood of Reappearance: Low. Truckules has been featured more prominently than either the Fancy or Power Plug, but would have had an episode devoted to him already if it were ever going to happen.

twilightJefferson Twilight, Blacula Hunter
What We Know:
As a Blacula hunter, Jefferson Twilight hunts black vampires. He does not know what the P.C. term for that is.
Great Name or Great Costume: Great Name.
Likelihood of Reappearance: High. Twilight is a member of the Order of the Triad, a technically active but aimless superteam, along with other supporting characters Dr. Orpheus and the Alchemist. The Order was featured most often in season two, but have not been written out of the series completely.

TJosTiny Joseph
What We Know:
Has worked with Venture Bros. arch-villain the Monarch on at least two occasions, possibly freelance. Tiny Joseph resembles the adoptive father of Jesus Christ and is tiny.
Great Name or Great Costume: Neither.
Likelihood of Reappearance: Low. Of the two episodes in which Tiny Joseph has appeared, one was a Christmas special, and both were in season one.
