The Hungry Alien is a one-time villain from the 2016 reboot of the Cartoon Network animated series The Powerpuff Girls, only appearing in the episode "Checkin' Out". He is your basic archetype of a green, tentacled alien, driving a U.F.O. and threatening to destroy the world. Only his special gimmick is that he makes a deal with his victims, saying that if they feed him a "delicious dinner" as he so bluntly put it, he will gladly spare their lives. Little to nothing is known about his origin and the reasons behind his motives. Not even his name was revealed, either in the episode or the credits.
He was voiced by Roger L. Jackson.
The Hungry Alien led an entire armada of aliens to Earth and they all threatened to destroy it unless the inhabitants of the planet made them a delicious dinner. The Powerpuff Girls complied with the alien's odd request and rushed to the grocery store to get the ingredients for an "out of this world" kind of food. Meanwhile, The Hungry Alien awaited his meal, hoping for it to arrive at the end of the day. If they did not give him his food by then, he would blow up the planet. As such, the defeat of The Hungry Alien became an obscure but important race against the clock.
Through all their trials and tribulations, The Powerpuff Girls failed to gather together the ingredients necessary for making the gourmet meal, so they had to instead scrape together whatever edible pieces of junk they could find in the cabinets and cupboards of their house. They slapped some crap together and hastily presented it to The Hungry Alien in the evening. The Hungry Alien ate their meal and after a long, dramatic pause, he ended up loving what they provided. Apparently, to him and his alien kind, this food was delicious to him. He even enjoyed the taste of the plate it was on. As confused as they were relieved, The Powerpuff Girls questioned if they really got away with what they did, as The Hungry Alien and his armada left their planet to live another day.
- His name was never revealed in the episode.
- He is voiced by Roger L. Jackson, the same person who voices Mojo Jojo. This is prevalent to the viewers, as his voice emits a hint of Mojo Jojo's likeness, when he speaks.
