They are a race of bird-like aliens resembling eagles with bulbous beaks, large wings and brown and beige feathers. They all wear matching grey military uniforms complete with grey war helmets that have spade cards on them.
They are re soldiers specialized in aquatic combat and guard the many bodies of water surrounding McGuffin's fortress.
It is quite possibly McGuffin's most dangerous known unit because they posses powerful psychic abilities that can warp the senses or create realistic illusions. They also can recreate the dangers of McGuffin's fortress in order to intimidate intruders and if that doesn't work they will show their enemies their greatest fears.
The Wingmen make their first appearance in the episode, "The It", where Commander Peepers planned to infiltrate their base.
Peepers and a squad of watchdogs began to infiltrate the fortress and stealthily made their way towards the force field generator to sabotage it. While they was at it, Wander irritated Hater with anger therapies like hobbies and sing-alongs, causing his rage to reach volcanic proportions, just enough to break free from his Coldburnite prison. Peepers's squad reached the control room and was about to bring down the shield until the alarms went off, and they discovered that Hater tripped them while wildly chasing after Wander. Peepers got caught by General Mcguffin who, in his pajamas, demanded to know what is going on. Wander popped up saying that Lord Hater was "it", causing the general to be wide eyed at the news about Hater, who promptly barged in yelling "TAAAAGGGG!!!" while foaming at the mouth. In a panic, Macguffin ordered his men a hasty retreat as they totally abandoned the fortress. Peepers stared dumbly at this and thought of a new devious plan: to use Hater's position as "it" to drive away the villainous competition.
The Battle Royal
They appear in The Battle Royal, helping their commander try to capture the Ring of Invincibility.
- The name "Wingmen" makes references to:
- Pilots whose aircraft are following a leading aircraft in a formation.
- In World War II, Soldiers from the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the American 101st Airborne Division (who were known as the "Screaming Eagles") who would paint the spades symbol on the sides of their helmets to represent good luck due to it being a fortunate hand in card games.
- The fact that the Wingman resemble eagles might also be an ode to the Screaming Eagles.
- In Vietnam War, American soldiers who believed that the spade symbol was a sign of bad luck to the Vietnamese people so some soldiers wore ace of spades cards on their helmets as a sign of hostility.
