Today's game goes to you, Power Pests. But tomorrow... is mine!
~ Madcap

Madcap (formerly known as Might Master) is the main antagonist of the French-superhero cartoon series Power Players. He is an action figure who wants Axel Mulligan's Power Bandz for himself in order to obtain absolute power and force every humans in the world to "play" with him. By using the Minergy battery he stole from Uncle Andrew's lab, he creates and leads his army of toys to try to take down the Power Players.

He is voiced by Paul Haapaniemi in the English dubbed version.


Madcap is a small black action figure with green details. He has two large horns on both sides of his head and four long black tentacles on the back. He also has red eyes with diamond-shaped irises.


Long before he's known as Madcap, he was originally a toy by the name of Might Master, a classic super hero action figure. Uncle Andrew took him into his lab to experiment with Minergy, an energy that could bring toys to life. But as he discovered what it meant to be played with, he took offense and became very delusional. He repainted his armor in the dark hues of his toy soul, vowed to "play" with humans like they had played with him, and rechristened himself as Madcap.

After Madcap start his path to villainy, he became ruthless, cold, cunning, and determined. His goal is to claim the Power Bandz to gain its absolute power necessary to achieve his goal, not caring if he causes any humans harm in the process. According to Madcap, he wants both the Minergy battery and Power Bandz to bring every toy in the world to life at once and force the humans to play with his "games".


Uncle Andrew

When Uncle Andrew tried his first experiment on Minergy, he used Madcap (then Might Master) as his test subject. However after Madcap starts his path to villainy and became very delusional, Uncle Andrew was forced to put him in a dormant state in the Toy Box in order to avoid having him cause any more troubles. Now Madcap is very resentful of Uncle Andrew and wants to get his revenge on him by taking over the world with his army of toys and force every humans to play with him.

Axel Mulligan/Action Axel

When Axel moved in with Uncle Andrew while his parents are away on a diplomatic mission in "Unboxing Part 1", he wasn't aware of the existence of smart-toys since Uncle Andrew never tell him about it. This lead to Madcap easily manipulated him into opening the Toy Box where he trapped inside and he sucks the Minergy from Axel's Power Bandz. Now that Axel joins the Power Players team in order to stop him, Madcap wants nothing more than to defeat him, take his Power Bandz, and make him suffer once he wins.

Power Players

Overall, Madcap is the sworn enemy to the entire Power Players team even before Axel joins them in "Unboxing Part 2". When Axel becomes a member, Madcap wants to do whatever it takes to take down the entire team in order for him to get his hands on the Power Bandz to gain its powers.

Powers and Abilities

As a smart-toy, Madcap can use his tentacle joints to suck up Minergy from the Minergy battery or the Power Bandz so he can gain powers. With the power of the Minergy, he can either blast it at his enemies or made a toy came to life to force them into joining his side.


  • Minergy Limitations: According to Madcap, as long as he have any Minergy with him, he won't have his powers be wasted during battles. This is the reason why he stole the Minergy battery from Uncle Andrew's lab in "Unboxing Part 2" since he'll be able to have an unlimited amount of power during his exile.
