|~ The Chameleon|
The Chameleon is the secondary antagonist in T.U.F.F. Puppy. He attempts to destroy T.U.F.F., but he never succeeds. He often uses his transformation suit to transform himself into any form, and upon taking an objects form he also gains all its features (i.e. turning into a bus, he can drive; turning into a gun, he can be fired etc.) He can also change his voice, although for some reason he doesn't always do this.
He is voiced by Daran Norris.
Of the three main villains, the Chameleon is about the second most dangerous, and although his plans often fail, he is quite intelligent; the majority of his plans only fail due to others interfering, rather than any fault of his own. He's also quite a good actor, and is reasonably good at impersonating people, although he has a habit of quickly saying things that link to the character that he is impersonating after each sentence.
He is also something of a sympathetic villain, as even among other villains, he is an outcast, and has no friends and is often portrayed as sad, lonely and even at worst depressed. As such, when any character does invite him in or help him, he has a habit of overreacting and trying to be unnaturally friendly, and is even oblivious if the person is obviously taking advantage of him.
Despite this, the Chameleon has no qualms with killing, even in mass numbers, and although he has never killed anyone yet (it is a children's show) he has attempted to kill on several occasions, some for no reason other than they didn't invite him to what they were doing.
As the Chameleon, he enjoys eating insects, to the point where it can be classified as a weakness, as he's been known to break character when impersonating someone and eat the insects, thus blowing his cover.
Physically his reptilian attributes serve him well, he can climb walls and can use his long tongue to grab hold of objects and people, and carry them.

- Afterwards, he disguised himself as a real estate agent named Bunny. He wanted revenge against T.U.F.F, which put him in jail, and D.O.O.M, which never invited him to their weekly ice cream parties. He also disguised himself as their new field agents to have them destroy each other.

- Dudley and an Unnamed Rabbit Cop once referred to the Chameleon as the "Cham-ah-lee-on", which the Chameleon himself also mispronounces later once.
- He hates being put in prison which is his motive for trying to destroy T.U.F.F.
