In Season 4 The Almighty Tallest Red and Purple are captured, taken out of power and exiled to earth by Vaul, the irken crimminal that Dr. Zeeltor had accidentally released before, now accompanied by another irken mercenary known as Commander Cen (Voiced by Robert Cait). Vaul then disguises himself as a "Tall" irken and proclaims himself the new Tallest. Back on earth, Dib and Stan find Dr. Zeeltor in Crazy Jeff's garage where Jeff is attempting to clone the doctor. Stan is able to rescue his companion after Dib talks Crazy Jeff into finding another paranormal-related hobby, such as ghost-hunting. Jeff takes Dib's advice and never bothers Dr. Zeeltor again.
The Tallest, Red and Purple, as they appeared in "Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars".The Irken Empire has a hierarchal class structure, where shorter individuals are both figuratively and literally looked down upon. The tallest Irken alive takes command of the Empire as "the Tallest", but since Red and Purple, the two current Tallest, are the exact same height, they share equal (and nigh-supreme) power.
While the Tallest function mainly as figureheads, doing little to organize the society (preferring to lounge around and eat snacks), they do hold absolute power over the populace. They travel around to observe and supervise Operation Impending Doom II in the Massive, the largest and most powerful ship in the Irken Armada. They appear to mostly use their unlimited powers of state to amuse themselves- sending loyal Irken soldiers to painful deaths ("Battle of the Planets"), forcing others weaker than themselves to obey their random whims ("Hobo 13") and starving their own command crew ("Backseat Drivers"). Red is often considered to actually have a slight focus on ruling the Irken race, as is usually seen as being more intelligent than Purple. This is seen in the episode Backseat Drivers, where, while Purple floats around screaming and eating doughnuts, Red finds out that Zim is controlling the ship via the power core, and switches it with the Resisty's core, thus saving the Massive from hitting Earth. They love to cause other Irkens pain ("Walk for your Life") and, Purple especially, puppets (also "Walk for Your Life).
The voice of Almighty Tallest Purple was done by Kevin McDonald, best known for his participation in the Canadiansketch comedy group Kids in the Hall and as Pastor Dave in "That 70's show". Almighty Tallest Red was voiced byWally Wingert.
Boss ShadowBoss Shadow (Voiced by Jim Belushi) appears in Season 5 and is the final villain although he appears in all seasons before 5 under the alias of Mr. Thompson. In The Beinning of the End pt 1 it is revealed Stan's planet is in the middle of a civil war with an evil shadow-like creature who calls himself "The Shadow" and in The Beinning of the End pt 2 After nearly being defeated by Stan and his people, The Shadow and his followers flee to earth. Stan voluntiers to follow The Shadow to earth and capture him. It is then that Stan decides to take up residence on earth until "The Shadow" re-appears. In The 'ol Desk JobStan gets a desk job and meets his new boss Mr. Thompson who is actually Boss Shadow. In The Shadow Strikes Back pt 1 When the Resisty take Stan and Dr. Zeeltor back earth, everything seems to be getting back to normal. However, things begin to change when Stan goes back to work. It is there that Stan discovers his boss Mr. Thompson's true identity. In The Shadow Strikes Back pt 2 When Mr. Thompson finds that Stan had been spying on him, he captures and takes Stan to his lair where Stan is held prisoner. Meanwhile, Dr. Zeeltor calls for the aid of the Resisty to get Stan back. In The Sinister 6 To take out Stan and conquer the galaxy, The Shadow gathers an alliance of Stan greatest foes: Lord Garvon, Supreme Master Artilico, Zangas Valtron, Zayak Valtron, Tak, and Vaul, all of whome are revealed to have been allied with The Shadow since his near defeat and capture on Stan's homeworld. Meanwhile Stan must deal with the group's leader, Calamaris
ZimZim is a short, green, almost stereotypical looking alien from the planet Irk. He is trying to conquer the Earth, and is generally unsuccessful. He uses ridiculously excessive and elaborate plans to conquer the planet when he obviously has the resources to do so much more efficiently. After the series's cancellation, Jhonen Vasquez did a four-page comic for the Nickolodeon Magazine. In it, Zim conquers the Earth in less than half a minute when Dib isn't looking. Dib and Zim then go to outerspace to ride space bunnies. This blunt and exaggerated plot may have been done out of spite for the cancellation. Zim isn't technically an Invader, and his superiors actively despise him. The episode The Frycook What Came From All That Space confirms that Zim was officially demoted from the rank of Invader to Food Services after his disastrous performance during Operation Impending Doom One. His current assignment to invade Earth is actually just the Tallest's latest and most desperate attempt to get Zim as far away from them as possible. Zim is voiced by Richard Steven Horvitz.
GirGIR is a dysfunctional version of the Irken SIR (Standard Information Retrieval) units given to Irken invaders. In order to avoid wasting a functional SIR unit on Zim, GIR was constructed from junk parts found in a trash can. He is completely insane. Zim blames him for most of the problems on the mission, regardless of whether or not it is his fault. GIR takes a lackadaisical approach to life, mostly concerned with his squeaky toys, food, the Scary Monkey Show, pigs, and television. He doesn't know what the 'G' in 'GIR' stands for. GIR is voiced by Rosearik Rikki Simons.
SkoodgeInvader Skoodge was shown in the first episode as being the shortest, fattest, ugliest Invader (although it is shown a few episodes that Zim is even shorter). Since the Irken culture idolizes height, little Skoodge was at an instant disadvantage. In scorn of his stature, the Tallest sent him to invade Planet Blorch, home of the Slaughtering Rat People, where he was expected to die horribly. However, Skoodge is a highly skilled Invader – the first Invader of Impending Doom Two to successfully subjugate his assigned planet. The Nickelodeon e-card for Skoodge says he survived on Blorch by eating really nasty things. On the arrival of the Irken Armada to Blorch to proclaim their first successful Invasion, The Tallest refused to make short Skoodge their poster-boy for galactic conquest. Instead, declaring a 'new tradition' on the spot, they instead fired him out of a cannon into space. A taller Irken civilian, randomly selected by Tallest Purple, was dubbed Invader Skoodge, and paraded in front of the cameras. Also when Zim was sent to a planet for military training, (or so he thought) Skoodge was there as well and used by Zim to get through the trials. Skoodge and Zim were smeeted (born) in the same generation of Irkens, (The Trial) and their first (and most subsequent) adventures together usually lead to Skoodge suffering horrible pain. Zim believes Skoodge to be very gullible. Skoodge was originally slated to have a larger role in season two: he was to be hiding from The Tallest in Zim's basement and was later to be in many future episodes such as "Day of da Spookies." For some odd reason, he can live without a PAK to support his life and seems to be able to think without a brain. Invader Skoodge was voiced by Ted Raimi.
