|Please note that this is an article on the superheroic group, if you are looking for the article on the 19th chapter of the manga entitled then you should head to The Majestic 12.|
The Majestic Twelve (マジョスティック・トゥエルブ), also known as MJ12 and the 12 Assassins (12人の刺客 Jūni-nin no Shikaku), is a league of American superheroes apparently led by Dr. Riddles. They are seen at various points in the series, and although they seem to have great powers, they are mostly shown as humorously incompetent at fighting, preferring to use riddles and confusion to defeat their opponents (though this is only in the anime; there is no indication in the manga that their powers are not all they are portrayed as). The Majestic Twelve are shown to have a certain degree of respect for Dr. Riddles, which is demonstrated when they try different ways to cheer him up after Kid's book is burnt (though all plans fail miserably). They are named after the purported secret committee of American scientists that supposedly investigated UFO incidents in the Truman era.
Lightning Eye (ツー・ライティング・アイ Two-Lightning Eye in the Japanese version) is a hero who shoots lasers from his eyes, although they aren't actually laser beams; they are just red light with no harmful effect.
Rocket Foot (ロケット・フット) is a hero with incredible running speed with a top speed of 300 kilometers per hour, although he has weak stamina and easily gets fatigued from running at extreme speeds.
Flying Beat (フライング・ビート) is a hero that is able to fly and glide in the air with his bat-like suit he but is unable to properly control his change of direction.
Second Sight (セカンド・サイト), a man with clairvoyance, being able to perceive future events, but there is nothing he can't do about them.
Dinosaur Arm (ダイナソー・アーム) is a hero with incredible strength; said to have the strength a dinosaur, being able to lift boulders. Unfortunately, he is also said to have the intelligence of a dinosaur as he lacks intelligence and may act like a mindless brute.
Future Wonder (ワンダフル・トゥ・ザ・フューチャー Wonderful to the Future in the Japanese version) is a hero in a business suit that is able to see into the future, perhaps even better than Second Sight's clairvoyance. But just like Second Sight, Future Wonder is unable to do anything in combat.
Psychic Jungle (サイコ・ジャングル Psycho Jungle in the Japanese version) is a wild barbarian-like hero with psychic powers such as telekinesis and telepathy, which is quite ironic for his appearance. However, he often gets distracted by girls, remarking them, "You're pretty..." while drooling.
Fire ElbowFire Elbow (ファイアー・エルボー) is a hero that utilizes pyrokinesis, the psychic ability to manipulate flames. However, he is unable to control his fire powers (just like Blizzard Thing is unable to control his ice powers).
Lady SusanLady Susan, known as Big Boing (ビッグ・ボイン Biggu Boin) in the Japanese version and the YouTube dub), her said power was being able to "smell nice" like lavender, which isn't really a power. Her Japanese name "Big Boing" refers to her oversized breasts; her power involves bouncing her breasts up and down or batting them with her arms to distract everyone. She is the most prominent of the twelve, appearing occasionally on her own and consistently seen alongside Dr. Riddles. She also, on occasion, is shown as actually able to fight. Her dialogue consists almost exclusively of the word "Yeah".
Lady Susan is voiced by Michelle Ruff in the English dub and by Ai Nagano in the original Japanese version.
Lady Susan's Japanese voice actress Ai Nagano has voiced some character songs including "Never Say BOIN BABY," "Koi no Lesson 1, 2, 3" (恋のレッスン1・2・3, lit. "Love Lesson 1, 2, 3") (ft. Parco Folgore), and "U~N□SEXY" (う〜ん□SEXY) (ft. Parco Folgore and Monmon-sensei).
Blizzard ThingBlizzard Thing (ブリザード・シング), a youthful hero who can use cryokinesis, the psychic ability to manipulate ice. However, just like Fire Elbow, he is unable to control his elemental power correctly.
Tremor MoleTremor Mole (トレマー・モグラー) is a hero who can dig and travel freely through the ground. However, he can't see underground and often crashes into objects.
Telepathy RadarTelepathy Radar (テレパシス・レーダー) is the leader of the Majestic Twelve that commands them others and enhances their powers. However, his team would usually already be defeated before he could help them. Telepathy Radar was also the pilot of the plane used by Sunbeam and Ponygon as they rush to take on one of Clear's minions at the time of the final battle.
- The Majestic Twelve's Japanese group name as the 12 Assassins are a reference to a 1963 film entitled 13 Assassins (十三人の刺客 Jūsan-nin no Shikaku).
