While a lot of Nick characters got a bit more limelight via toys and comics and games, some of them didnít really get closure to who they were. Mutagen Man is a hanging plot thread, for example, in addition to some that didnít even get fleshed out in tie-ins (I wished they did some more...). Insofar as ones who never showed up at all there, Groundchuck, Dirtbag, War, Cement Man, Chote, and Tempestra feel like especially strange omissions and good concepts to explore.

I didnít count characters like Ninjara, Mortu, or Traximus who have analogues in the Nick show (Alopex, Bishop, and Zeno), nor those that got homages but no real appearance (Neutrinos, Scaletail, Ray, Ace Duck, Hothead, etc.) in the series. REX-1ís absence from everything after the OT is odd too. Would have been cool to see him as Donís secondary robot experiment. (Other than turning the remains of Irma into a guard-Bot, maybe?)

Venus and Carterís absence seems more justified because everyone hated them back in the day, but no salvage attempts have been made for them.

They were really going somewhere with Shreeka in FW and I would love to see her get more of a presence.

She may have lost her power ring, but like...it would have been cool to see her do more stuff.

Notably, Nick uses few 2003 characters compared to the staples and Playmates+FW+Archie+Konami cast. Only Hun and Bishop appeared, as well as a Traximus analogue. Shokanbo would have worked pretty well with his oozy body, maybe even manipulating Mutagen Man into his follower. Also, Tattoo wasnít used there either. He would have been a good pick for a male rogue Foot. I find it odd he hasnít been worked into IDW either.

In general, characters from ďsecondary canonĒ to existing universes are never seen afterwards. Such as Lobsterdude, Buttercup, Dheeraj, Izo, etc.
