Captain N: The Game Master

Show Summary

Kevin Keene, a teenager from Northridge, California, and his dog Duke are brought to another universe called Videoland, where Nintendo video games are real, to defeat the evil villainess Mother Brain. Mother Brain is trying to conquer Videoland. Kevin has been brought to defeat her, as foretold in an ancient prophecy. Kevin is given the title "Captain N: The Game Master." He and Duke join the N Team consisting of Princess Lana (the ruler of Videoland), Simon Belmont (the hero from "Castlevania"), Mega Man, Kid Icarus, and later Gameboy (a supercomputer that looks like a Game Boy system). The N Team goes up against the evil Mother Brain (the villianess from "Metroid") and her minions King Hippo (from "Punch Out"), the Eggplant Wizard (from "Kid Icarus"), Dr. Wily (from "Mega Man") and Count Dracula (from "Castlevania"). The forces of good and evil go up against each other and often find themselves in comical, hilarious situations. The Characters The Good Guys: Kevin Keene/Captain N: Kevin Keene is from Northridge California. He was brought to Videoland through the Ultimate Warp Zone to become the savior of Videoland as Captain N: The Video Game Master. Kevin cares greatfully for Lana and his dog Duke. As Captain N, he has a weapon called a Zapper which shoots laser-like beams to dedigitize his enemies. He also wears a power pad, a wonderful item that allows him to jump higher, run extremely fast, and stop time around him for a limited duration. Duke the Dog: Duke is Kevin's pet dog whose weapons are his bark and his bite. Duke will do anything to protect Kevin but is actually a slightly coward. He loves to chase cats. Princess Lana: Princess Lana took over as ruler of Videoland after her father King Charles disappeared. She wishes for peace more than anything else and is too trusting of others, even Mother Brain, if there is a chance of peace. This leads to many problems. Kid Icarus: Kid Icarus AKA Pit is the winged archer from Mount Icarus. Even though he's small and weak, he has a variety of arrows from which to choose for his attacks. He has speech impendiment when he puts the suffix "-icus" after a few words. Mega Man: Mega Man was created by Dr. Light. He is extremely strong due to a mighty arm cannon and is very strong. Like Kid Icarus, he also has a speech impendiment by putting mega in front of a few words. Simon Belmont: Vampire hunter Simon Belmont is extremely vain. He keeps a mirror in his backpack to constantly look at himself. He hats getting his hair mussed up. Despite this, he's very strong. Gameboy: Gameboy was sent to Videoland by King Charles at the start of season 2 from the Mirror World. He is young and naive and uses his display to create weapons. The Bad Guys Mother Brain: Mother Brain is a brain in a bottle and the villain from Metroid. She banished King Charles to Mirror Warp and tries many attempts to overthrow Princess Lana. Eggplant Wizard: Eggplant Wizard is the villain from Mount Icarus. He and King Hippo tend to bungle up tasks that Mother Brain send him on. King Hippo: Like his partner Eggplant Wizard, King Hippo also bungles things up with Eggplant Wizard. He's from Punchland. Dr. Wily: Dr. Wily is Dr. Light's archnemesis who builds Robot Master and other devices for Mother Brain. He also wheezes constantly in his speeches. Alucard: Son of Count Dracula. He's not much like his father. He skateboards and is pretty much a punk. Donkey Kong: Donkey Kong is the giant ape of Kongoland. Although he's not truly evil, he must be appeased with food or else he'll wreak havoc upon the people of Kongoland. Gannon: Gannon is the master of evil on Hyrule. Before he is given the Potion of Power, he looks quite weak until he's returned to his big, powerfulm hoggish mage as he drinks it. He doesn't like to work with others and refuses to obey Mother Brain since he likes to work solo.moreless
