Character description

The Butcher (WordGirl)

The Butcher is a supervillain who dresses like any normal butcher would. But he's been shown to butcher words (much to WordGirl's chagrin). However, he has tried to improve in his mispronounciation of the English language, and, had so far, only reached enunciation. When learning that there was more to the English language, he seemed to give up on improving on his speaking altogether.

His gimmick is meat-related crimes, and his main power is releasing meat attacks. However, these meat attacks can be diffused by tofu. At first, WordGirl had difficulty handling this foe, and seeked her ally Professor Boxleitner's aid.

He also previously fell in love with a copy of Lady Redundant Woman.


Despite the fact that he's a villain, he seems to think that he gets along quite well with WordGirl. In addition, WordGirl is always trying to help him with his vocabulary. He also seems to have a bit of sympathy for her and most others as well. However, he will occasionally attack her and Captain HuggyFace with his meat products.
