Torque is a recurring antagonist in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. He is a multi-eyed and multi-limbed convict known for his crimes of terrorism, smuggling, arson, and unpaid parking tickets.
He was voiced by Brad Garrett.
Torque first appeared in the episode The Torque Armada, when he was arrested by Team Lightyear. However, he was freed from a prison transport by Emperor Zurg's army of Hornets. Taken to Planet Z, he formed an alliance with Zurg to take down Team Lightyear. To that end, Zurg gets his Grubs to implant a cell-separation device upon his chest, giving him the ability to create duplicate versions of himself. With that in mind, Torque and his clones attempt to use the opportunity to get back at Team Lightyear by trapping them and setting cargo ships with fusion cells into Capital Planet. Fortunately, Mira uses her power to free herself and her team, and they manages to turn the ships around using traffic posts, much to Zurg's anger. Buzz then gets a group of Space Ranger to take down Torque and his clones and haul them away to prison, much to Torque's anger.
Torque returned in the episode The Taking of PC-7, where he was escorted to a prison planet called PC-7 by Booster and XR while the Galactic President makes a personal visit. However, Torque broke free of his restraints and takes Booster, the warden, and the Galactic President hostage. He briefly turns Booster evil with a memory-altering device built by the warden, in order to lure Buzz into the prison so that he can turn Buzz evil with the same device. Eventually, XT manages to get the device to briefly turn Torque into a good guy before turning Buzz back to normal, leaving Torque to remain in prison.
