|~ Dr. Flug Slys in the episode Bigger, Badder|
Dr. Flug Slys, often simply referred to as Dr. Flug, is the deuteragonist villain of the 2017 Cartoon Network animated TV series Villainous. He is a scientist who is an ally of Black Hat.
He is voiced by Jose Antonio Macías in Spanish and by Todd "Eco Vox" Asayer in the English dub.
Little is known about Dr. Flug's past before the events of Villainous, although it is known that he learned Chinese in kindergarten and he used to play flute during his elementary school years. In the present day he is a nervous scientist who wears a paper bag over his head. He is also the one who creates all of the gadgets and machines Black Hat tries to sell. No one has seen his face except for, according to someone working on the show, Black Hat himself.
Dr. Flug is depicted as a tall, lanky male with white skin around his neck. He is often seen wearing a white lab coat, a blue t-shirt with an airplane on it, light blue trousers, red sneakers, yellow gloves, and goggles. He also has a paper bag over his head. His legs are unusually long compared to his body.
Dr. Flug appears to be a cowardly man, even though he is not an actual wimp. He is very intelligent and inventive and seems to like to 5.0.5., as he considers himself a father figure to the bear. In contrast, he and Demencia are often seen bickering, which shows a mutual dislike on their part.
In his Orientation Videos for Villains series it is shown that he may have no problem with torture and threats targeted at children. He also appears to have somewhat of an ego when it comes to his intelligence. In addition he is constantly nervous and wears a paper bag over his head at all times for some reason.
There is also an indication that he is a hypocrite, as in the inspection video about Mojo Jojo, he talked to 5.0.5. in a way parents talk to their small children, after he criticized Jojo for showing affection of his villainy.
