Big Hero 6: The Animated Series is a 2017 American animated superhero television series based on the 2014 film of the same name, which, in turn, is loosely based on the Marvel Comic book series. The series was created by Cloverfield monster, and it takes place after the events of the movie. It focuses on the exploits of the Big Hero 6 team fighting various villains, monsters, and other forces of evil that threaten San Fransokyo and the rest of the world. Unlike the movie, which featured science closer to reality, the series features more fantastic elements. An actual animated series is set to be released in November 2017.
This is a list of new characters that make their first appearance in this show.
Red Ronin - Based on the Marvel comics mech of the same name, Red Ronin is a giant robot, a mecha built by Wasabi as a defense weapon against the threat that mankind faces from creatures called Kaiju, gigantic amphibian monsters feared by all of humanity for the destruction and death they unleash on major cities around the world. Wasabi got the idea to build Red Ronin after observing Fred watching mecha anime shows on TV. He was interested in the fact that the robots of the show were fighting giant monsters, which gave him the idea to build Red Ronin, believing that this could be the answer to stopping the Kaiju threat. He based the robot's design off of the mechs from those shows, but also added some elements of Japanese samurai armor worn by samurai warriors. Red Ronin is 250 feet tall and weighs around 30,000 tons. Each member of the BH6 plays a crucial role in piloting the robot so it can move and fight. Wasabi leads the team by manning the head, which is the control center for everything inside Red Ronin. Hiro and Fred control the arms, while GoGo and Honey control the legs. Baymax has control of all the weapons systems inside the chest area, so by pressing buttons upon orders, he can summon weapons from any area of Red Ronin's body for use in Kaiju Combat. Red Ronin is also capable of intercontinental flight, useful for fighting Kaiju attacking other cities across the world.
The Kaiju - The Kaiju are a race of giant amphibious monsters that are usually 200-300 feet tall. They are hostile creatures with skin that even the mightiest conventional military weapons cannot penetrate. It's not known where these creatures came from or how they were created, but it is known they first revealed themselves to humanity in the 1950's, during the Atomic Age, when a Kaiju was first spotted swimming in the ocean by submarines. The first Kaiju attack on the city came about a few months later, where a Kaiju rose up and devastated the city of Osaka. Since then, scientists across the world have been trying to study these behemoths to learn more about their abilities, how to prepare people for the next attack, and how to maybe even stop them completely. Kaiju also secrete an extremely toxic liquid when their skin is damaged that is harmful to humans and other life forms and in some cases, even to other Kaiju. That's why when a Kaiju is killed and city officials have to clean it up, they have to wear powerful hazmats to approach the dead Kaiju safely. The Kaiju attacks on the world were the reason why Wasabi built Red Ronin, a giant robot fighting machine built to fend off the beasts.
The deadliest and most destructive Kaiju attack in recorded history took place in San Fransokyo in 2022, and it was dubbed, "The Great Siege" by where an enromous 330 foot tall Kaiju, the largest on record, came out of the ocean and began to wreak havoc. Despite the best efforts from the military to stop it, the Kaiju devastated the city, killing millions and creating a 40 mile path of destruction from San Fransokyo to Los Angeles. After 3 days of fighting the monster, the military was finally forced to resort to using nuclear weapons, which finally killed the Kaiju, but at the cost of Los Angeles and surrounding neighborhoods.This particular Kaiju was responsible for the deaths of the parents of Hiro Hamada and Tadashi Hamada. Tadashi was only a boy at the time of the attack, and Hiro was just a baby.
Megazon - (voiced by Paul Dobson) A mere throwaway one-liner from Fred turns into a character of its own in the form of the villainous Megazon. Megazon is a ruthless alien tyrant and the main villain of Fred's favorite superhero TV Show, The Ultra Soldiers. He wants nothing more than to conquer entire planets and galaxies to expand his intergalactic empire and destroy all forms of resistance against him. However, he is frequently stopped by The Ultra Soldiers, who use their mechanized Dords to battle him. Megazon has superhuman strength, a powerful magic staff which can emit powerful energy weapons as well as convert into a sword. Megazon also has an incredible assortment of gadgets and technology at his disposal when needed. When Fred got a cool invention to enter the Ultra Soldiers world in the TV as a gift for his birthday, Megazon stole this device and used it to transport himself to the real world, where he proceeded to rampage through San Fransokyo and demolish half the city as well giving the Big Hero 6 a serious pounding. However, using Fred's knowledge of the TV show, they finally managed to stop him and send him back into the TV show where he belongs. However, he would later return and kidnap Hiro to lure his teammates to him so he can wipe them all out. He was one of the team's deadliest foes.
Megazon does NOT take failure well at all. So much so that when one of his minions fails a mission given to them, he tears off one of their limbs violently as punishment.
Rangarok - (voiced by Corey Burton) Rangarok is actually the original Baymax that sacrificed himself for Hiro in the portal at the end of the movie to help Hiro make it out. But, unfortunately, he is no longer the adorable, somewhat naive, and caring robot he once was. Without the healthcare chip that is currently in the new Baymax, the original became a cruel, evil, monstrous villain. He managed to escape limbo and returned to Earth, hell-bent on vengence. His biggest mission was to destroy Hiro for "abandoning" him (as he puts it). He first appears in the episode, "Framed", where he rampages across San Fransokyo, intent on framing Baymax for crimes across the city to get the public to turn on him and result in his destruction. But, he was eventually stopped and Baymax's name cleared, but he became one of the Big Hero 6's deadliest adversaries. He is a dark parallel to Baymax. Baymax loves to heal and help people, while Rangarok takes pleasure in killing and destroying.
Alternate Hiro - (real voice by Ryan Potter, disguised voice by Fred Tatasciore) Alternate Hiro (aka Evil Hiro) is an evil, cruel, and mentally unstable version of Hiro from an alternate dimension, where a much, much different set of events happened. In this reality, Hiro didn't learn from the error of his destructive ways and actually succeeded in killing Callaghan using Baymax during the "Destroy" scene. However, he did not stop there. He became deranged and psychotic, he began to enjoy the feeling of killing. He stole the dead Callaghan's mask and proceeded to use it to continue creating a swath of devastation across the world. He killed all of the BH6 members (except for Fred, who went into hiding and formed an underground resistance to fight against Hiro sometime later, and Baymax, who was still under his control). Building a new army of Baymaxes meant for war and conquest, Alternate Hiro succeeded in destroying all of civilization as it was known and became the ruthless overlord of what was left.
His new battle outfit includes Callaghan's mask, which he swiped after killing the man, a torn cape worn around his neck, jet black Iron-Man like armor worn around him and a black hood around the back of his head. He also has ten times the amount of microbots under his control that Callaghan had. His modified mask also has a built-in voice changer, which activates when the mask covers his face, making his voice sound more demonic, scary and intimidating.
Alternate Fred - (voiced by T.J. Miller) Alternate Fred is a version of Fred from an alternate dimension. In this dimension, he is a serious, brooding, and tough warrior. And he has a good reason to be: after Alternate Hiro destroyed Earth, he had lost everything he ever cared about: his friends, his family, his luxurious life. After Alternate Hiro killed all of the Big Hero 6 members, he was the only surviving member (not counting Baymax, who was still under Hiro's control). He went into hiding and formed an underground resistance army that works regularly to protect the remaining humans from Alternate Hiro's wrath. It is also implied via recordings and a photo Alternate Fred keeps in his backpack that before Earth was destroyed, he and GoGo were dating. At first, he does not believe the regular Hiro when he tries to tell him that he's from an alternate reality and has him and Yokai, who also got sent to that dimension, locked up in a cell. But, it's not until he hears of Alternate Hiro on yet another rampage that he believes them and teams up with them to stop Alternate Hiro from going to destroy the real Hiro's reality as well.
Alternate Fred does not wear his hat, he instead wears a black coat and grey shirt. He also has an eyepatch on his left eye, due to an injury, and he also has bionic right arm, which was built to replace his biological arm, after Alternate Hiro tore it off with his microbots.
El Magnifico - (voiced by David Shaughnessy) El Magnifico is a very famous superhero that fights crime in San Fransokyo. But, his true identity is actually Fred's humble butler, Heathcliff, for while Fred is away fighting crime with his friends, Heathcliff secretly goes around beating up villains himself. However, unlike Fred, El Magnifico works alone. He has an incredible arsenal of gadgetry that can help him save the day and get himself out of any situation, as well as his brilliant intellect and quick wit. His arch-nemesis is the evil Dr. Alymo, a supervillain who was actually once Heathcliff's good friend turned bad. El Magnifico is always battling him and foiling his evil schemes for world domination. He is largely inspired by James Bond, as El Magnifico is great at fighting, says funny quips and saves the day from villains time and again.
Fredzilla - A 300-foot tall reptilian force of destruction, Fredzilla is NOTHING like the beloved fanboyish, good-natured Fred the rest of the team has known to love. After a lab accident while hunting a mad scientist, that loveable oaf has transformed into a thoughtless savage. When the monster makes landfall in San Fransokyo, NO ONE is safe. Cars get crushed, buildings smashed, bridges toppled, entire cities on fire, it's a powerful destructive force that can't be stopped. He is deliberately designed to look exactly like the monster form of Fred's comic book counterpart. He is a giant 300 foot-tall Godzilla-like creature, with red scaly skin. He is highly muscular, with huge muscular arms for smashing buildings and enemies and bulky legs that can crush anything in the monster's path. It also has has razor sharp teeh and claws, as well as 3 large fins on his back and 2 smaller ones that run from his shoulders to the start of its tail and one large one that runs from the end of its neck to the beginning of its tail. It not only uses its claws, teeth and sheer size for causing destruction. It's also capable of shooting an enormous laser-like blast of heat from its mouth that can decimate entire city blocks.
While not truly evil, he is portrayed as a destructive force and serves as the main antagonist of his episode debut, going on a vicious rampage through San Fransokyo and destroying the city, before finally being returned to normal by his friends. However, in the Season 2 finale, Revenge of Fredzilla, he later returns as an anti-hero, intent on destroying a far greater threat: The insect-like GIMOs, though still causing a lot of city destruction in the process.
|Pilot||001||Taking place after the movie, after the defeat of Yokai, Hiro Hamada is struggling to balance his normal college life (which is really not normal at all for a 14-year-old) and his duties as a superhero.

He creates life-like Robosaurs, which consists of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Triceratops, a Pteranodon, and an Apatosaurus. He builds them to make them look and act as real as possible through a thinking AI system that has a simple brain so the robots can perfectly replicate the way real dinosaurs behaved. However, things go arwy when the robot dinosaurs malfunction and thus begin wreaking havoc on the city. Now the Big Hero 6 has to clean up the mess.

It turns out that it's actually the original Baymax that was lost in the portal in the movie turned bad, and he now calls himself, Rangarok.

|Mecha Mayhem||005||Wasabi brings the team together to reveal to them that he has just finished working on a giant mecha robot built to help combat the meancing beasts known as Kaiju, giant creatures that rise out of the ocean to wreak havoc on major cities. He has been working on it for a long time and kept it a secret from them so it can be a surprise. He calls the robot, "Red Ronin," as it was deliberately designed to look like a samurai as well as the robots from the mecha shows Fred likes to watch. Wasabi hopes it can be highly effective in protecting humanity from the Kaiju threat. However, this effectiveness may soon be put to the test when an enrmous 300 foot tall Kaiju dubbed, Destructicus Wrecks, makes landfall in San Fransokyo and begins rampaging through the city. Will Red Ronin's power be enough to take the giant beast down?|

Wasabi names his alter ego after a legendary warrior fromlong ago...the Silver Samurai.

Honey has a less-than efficent habit: Her overly nice nature has given her a habit of saying "YES" to every task asked of her, making her even more busy than she should be. So, she steals Wasabi's experimental Medusa serum, which is a serum he created to make submissive people more assertive. However it has one side effect: It completely changes her personality. It makes her mean, tough, cantankerous, stubborn, and utterly ruthless towards criminals, much to her friend's shock and fear. But, when Honey leaves to go pick a fight with criminals, she starts brutally beating the living tar out of them, until Mr. Yama arrives and defeats her easily. He then captures her and uses her to draw out the rest of the team so he can kill them personally. Now, the others have to rescue their friend and get her back to normal, too.
Production Notes: When Honey goes bad, she dons a new outfit almost identical to that of her original comic book counterpart, except less revealing.
|Fin Fang Foom||041||Fred discovers a gigantic alien dragon-like creature frozen in a block of ice since the middle of the Ice Age. Unfortunately, he accidentally thaws it out, ressurecting it.

|Reality Check (hour long special)||042||
During a particularly ferocious battle with Callaghan, both Hiro AND Yokai accidentally get sucked into a dimensional portal and find themselves in an apocalyptic alternate reality, where the Hiro in that reality succeeded in killing Callaghan during the "Destroy" scene. After that, he became evil, deranged and psychotic, and killed off most of the members of the BH6, took over Earth, decimated human civilization as it was known and took over what was left with an entire army of evil Baymaxes and now rules the remnants of humanity with a ruthless iron fist. PLUS, the Fred of this dimension has lost all his humor and fanboyism because of this and became a more serious, tough, and brooding character. Alternate Fred is also the leader of an undergroud resistance army that works to stop Evil Hiro's tyranny. Hiro and Yokai both reluctantly decide they have no choice but to team up to get back to their dimension. But that mission is put aside when Evil Hiro finds the coordinates to the real Hiro's dimension and plans to destroy their Earth, too. Now, the real Hiro has to work together with the Alternate Fred AND Yokai to prevent Evil Hiro from succeeding and return home.
Production Note: At the end of the special, once everything is back to normal, the team wonders if there are any other alternate realities, and then one is revealed: It's the universe of the original Marvel comic book version of Big Hero 6, with the team from that universe making a brief apperance and preparing to take on Everwraith.

The team ends up having to face a dangerous spirit who forces them each to face their own worst fears. But, will they be able to overcome their fears, or they will be subjugated to suffering through these nightmares forever?
List of each of the Big Hero 6's greatest fears:
Hiro: Fire (for obvious reasons)
Baymax: Becoming obsolete
GoGo: Hornets (she got attacked by a hornet colony and it traumatized her)
Honey: Being ugly (because she used to be freaky looking when she was younger)
Wasabi: PEGGOS, a LEGO parody (Because of a traumatizing incident where when he was younger, he had 2 PEGGO pieces stuck up both nostrils of his nose which almost killed him by preventing him from breathing)
Fred: Robot overlords (due to seeing a really scary movie about robots taking over Earth)
A businessman Rick Richards, who owns the company Robotic Technologies Inc (Ro-Tech), who's headquarters is located in the city of New Yorkohama (which is a combination of New York City and the Japanese City of Yokohama ) is impressed by Red Ronin after seeing him in action protecting San Fransokyo from the Kaiju. So, he heads there and offers its creator, Wasabi, a deal to allow his company to make Red Ronins themselves and give him LOT of money in return. At first, Wasabi is happy to accept the deal, as he believes with Red Ronin's protecting cities everywhere, it could finally make the world safe from the Kaiju menace, but he immediately refuses once he finds out that the company wants to use their Red Ronins as weapons for human wars. Refusing to take no for an answer, Rick builds his own giant robot meant for war to attack San Fransokyo, which he dubs, Ultimo, His plan: decimate the city, annihilate Red Ronin, and take the RR blueprints by force.
Marvel's Big Hero 6
This episode actually takes place in the Marvel Comics dimension seen at the end of the hour-long special, Reality Check, and the original comic book versions of Big Hero 6, who made a cameo in that episode, are the main chracters of this one. In this episode, Hiro Takachiho and his new team, Big Hero 6 take on Lord Deathstrike (voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson), a supervillain in a kabuki mask that threatens to destroy Tokyo. It turns out that Lord Deathstrike was also responsible for killing Hiro's father, Tomeo Takachiho in a fire, and stealing his new invention.
Production Notes: This episode is pretty much a "what would it be like if the movie was closer to the comic" kind of episode.
While seeing his human companions playing a live-action role play game, Baymax is sad that he cannot join them because, being a robot, he is incapable of processing imagination. So, he ends up being made an imagination chip that will allow him to have the ability to imagine things so he can play with his friends. However, chaos occurs when Baymax accidentally gets hit by an electrical wire, causing the imagination chip to malfunction. While Baymax is stuck in imagination mode, he believes he's in Asgard helping fend off an invasion of evil Frost Giants to save the kingdom. When in reality, he's going on a destructive rampage through the city. Now, the rest of the gang has to stop Baymax and remove the imagination chip before Baymax causes too much damage. But, how are they supposed to do that when Baymax sees them all as evil monsters and wants to eliminate them?
Production Notes: This episode was inspired by the Futurama episode, "Bender's Game", which had a sub-plot about Bender wanting to be able to use imagination.
|The Water God (suggested by Silverflight)||060||
After Krei Tech's waste facility dumps some hazardous wastes into a lake off the coast of San Fransokyo, an axolotl gets exposed to the chemicals and mutates into a water-based being called Water God. Enraged over the environmental damage caused by humans, Water God wages war against humanity and tries to claim dominion over the planet for his kind. To make matters worse, the extremists from Episode 12 "Monster Island" have sided with it and are planning to attack the cities of the world, leaving no humans behind. With the rest of the team occupied with taking down Water God, can Baymax, Go Go, and Honey reason with the beast and find a compromise between both races?
These are short 6-7 minute long episodes that will once in a while play in between different shows.
|Me Time||Sometimes, even healthcare companions need time to themselves. When Hiro goes to bed and is fast asleep at night, that's the time for Baymax to have some fun and do things HE wants to do, when he gets to have some, "Me Time". It is revealed he likes to watch Transformers, play soccer with himself, read books, painting, and a few other things.|
|Nicknames||How did the members of the team get their nicknames? They hinted at some of it in the movie when Hiro first met them, but they never went into any real specifics. This minsode reveals exactly how and when they got their nicknames and how they've stuck with them since.|
|Red Ronin: Origins||This short minisode chronicles the long process it took for Wasabi to getting the mecha Red Ronin built and condenses it to 6-7 minutes. From getting the city's approval, to budgeting, choosing what weapons should be implinted and how it should be piloted, to actually building the robot, this minisode shows all that, the process that happened before the film, during the film, all the way up to RR's deubt episode, Mecha Mayhem.|
|Kaiju: History of Monsters||This minisode reveals the 80 year recorded history of the Kaiju (from 1953 to 2032). It chronicles the first sighting of a Kaiju in July 1953, the first Kaiju attack on a major city that happened in October that same year, the several attacks on cities that have happened over the years, as well the deadliest and most destructive Kaiju attack in recorded history that took place in 2020 in San Fransokyo, Sacramento and Los Angeles, which led to the deaths of Hiro and Tadashi's parents, and scientist's efforts to try and contain the beasts, or if lucky enough, stop them completely.|
Baymax's built-in operating system gets upgraded to the latest software, "Doors 10", but it turns out the new OS is not very well-built and has a lot of problems, thus leading to hilarious antics.
PRODUCTION NOTES: Doors 10 is a parody of the real-world operating system, Windows 10.
- A TV series is now officially happening as it was announced one was coming to Disney XD in Fall of 2017.
- While the film focuses on science closer to reality, the series features more fantastic elements, such as the Kaiju, gigantic monsters that wreak havoc on major cities, as well as the addition of mecha robots that were made famous in anime, with the main mech, Red Ronin, used to fight said Kaiju. The citizens of San Fransokyo also use Japanese yen, instead of US dollars.
- How San Fransokyo gets rebuilt quickly in the next episode each time the city is destroyed is never fully explained, but it is implied that futuristic technology makes building much, much quicker than normal.
- So far, there are 2 episodes where 5 members of the team only make a minor appearance: Episode 10 (Man of Iron) and Episode 20 (The Silver Samurai).
- There are also another 2 episodes where ALL of them are minor characters. The first being Episode 27 (El Magnifico), as the episode focuses on Heathcliff's superhero alter ego, and the second being Aunt Cass the Hero, and it's pretty obvious who that focuses on.
- The team's Mecha, "Red Ronin" is in fact based upon the Marvel mecha that first appeared in the Marvel Comics version of Godzilla. In Fact, Red Ronin actually worked with Big Hero 6 in the comics at one point.
- 4 Marvel characters have made guest appearances in the series: Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy.
- In the minisode, Me Time, it is revealed when Hiro is fast asleep every night, Baymax likes to use this time to do things HE likes to do, examples including watching Transformers, playing soccer with himself, and painting, and the minisode focuses entirely on that.
- The way Fred becomes Fredzilla in Episode 29 is actually a nod to a scene from the Nickelodeon TV movie, The Boy who Cried Werewolf, where the main character Jordan (Victoria Justice) transforms into a werewolf after a similar accident.
- Also, the monster Fredzilla looks exactly like he did in the comic books, as a reference to the comics and Godzilla.
- And interesting enough, like Godzilla, Fredzilla started off being the main antagonist in his on-screen debut. However, also like Godzilla, Fredzilla would later go on to become an anti-hero, defending the Earth from threats that could destroy, but not for the benefit of the humans.
- A recurring gag in the series is that a lot of people mistake Hiro for a girl due to his appearance, much to his chagrin.
- Baymax's monster form, the Werebot, was originally going to be called Wirewolf, but that name was near-immediately scrapped to avoid confusion with the Buzz Lightyear character of the same name.
- It turns out that Heathcliff, Fred's butler, is actually a superhero himself, called El Magnifico and Fred and the rest of the team has no idea that it's him.
- However, Fred finally does find out in the episode, Big Evil 6, and promises Heathcliff not to tell anyone, even his team.
- I took inspiration from James Bond and Batman for El Magnifico. I wanted to make a character that was great at fighting, has lots of gadgets and makes funny quips.
- Normally, Hiro is the leader of the team. But, when they are using Red Ronin to battle, Wasabi is the one that's the leader, as he's the one who built the mech, so he knows all the controls.
- Whenever a major man-made disaster threatens the city, it's usually Fred's fault. Whether it be accidentally unleashing some kind of villain or monster, or using an invention to try and help his friends or the city, and it ends up going wrong in some way.
- In the early stages of the show, Callaghan (aka Yokai) was originally not going to return at all and his daughter would end up taking the Yokai mantle in anger at the team for putting her dad in jail. She was going to go on a rampage and attack the team at their base, destroying their base, and then hunting the scattered BH6 down intent on picking them off one by one. But, this was ultimately scrapped as it did not seem like something she would do.
- In the episode, A Better Healthcare Companion, it is revealed that Baymax has a fear of becoming obsolete, to the point it actually makes him super-jealous of the robot, S.T.E.V.E.
- The GIMOs from Episode 50 are an homage to the MUTOS from the 2014 American Godzilla remake.
- There are some differences though. The Male GIMO does not have wings and is larger, but the female GIMO does and is smaller. In the 2014 American Godzilla, it's the other way around. The Male MUTO is the one that has wings and is smaller, while the female is flightless and is larger.
- Despite being a villain with a silly premise (being a TV show character brought into the real world), Megazon is one of the most dark and menacing villains in the series, right up there with Rangarok.
- Unlike all the other Kaiju, Momma Kaiju was the only Kaiju to attack a city with an actual goal in mind, which was to get her child back. Momma Kaiju is also the only Kaiju to leave the city alone without any further conflict once her goal was accomplished.
- The San Fransokyo Institute of Technology is one of the very few buildings in the series that does not get destroyed even once throughout the series (the movie tortured that building enough. Plus, they got to go to school somewhere).
- Out of all the Marvel comic book versions of Big Hero 6 onscreen, Hiro Takachiho is the only one to keep his Disney counterpart's voice actor. Everyone else has a completely different voice actor.
- Rangarok's name is actually spelled incorrectly. It's supposed to be "RAGNAROK" not "RANGAROK", but I chose to stick with it because it sounded cool when you say it.
- The word, Kaiju, means, "strange beast" in Japanese, though it can be interpreted as a number of things, such as "monster" "giant beast" or "giant monster".
- This is the first Cloverfield monster series to be a superhero show, before Fantastic Four: The Animated Series.
