Money is Plunder's main motive. He often finds corruption and weaknesses, and exploits them for his own gain. Plunder doesn't care about human or environmental suffering, so long as cash continues to enter his pockets.
Plunder will even go so far as to exploit or turn his back on the other eco-villains in order to benefit himself.
He tries his hand in most things - illegal hunting and poaching, deforestation, habitat destruction, and intelligent of technology.
Plunder obviously has a large supply of money and support, often using radical and advanced technology, as well as having many people willing to follow him and do his bidding. He has only one regular sidekick, Argos Bleak (see below), but Plunder's power extends to many, and it is evident he has the personality and the means to get people to follow him.
Occasionally, Plunder produces two other semi-regular sidekicks, the Pinehead Brothers, Oakey and Dokey.
Stereotypical of businessmen during the late 1980s/early 1990s, Plunder has shoulder-length brown hair pulled back into a ponytail and usually seen wearing a green suit trimmed with tiger-skin.
Plunder was voiced by James Coburn in seasons 1-3. Afterwards in seasons 4-6 he was voiced by Ed Gilbert.
Bald and extremely muscular, Bleak handles the dirty work Wood steers clear of. It is usually Bleak who takes care of the Planeteers by tying them up or trapping them somewhere in order to prevent them stopping Plunder's latest scheme. Bleak dresses in an open black leather vest and combat pants. He favours heavy boots.
Bleak has a thin black moustache and an accent - which some fans of the show refer to as Australian, and others British.
