“It is I, Verminious Snaptrap!” "Who am I?! Simply the most evil mind in all of Petropolis!" "I will now PLOT MY REVENGE!” —Verminious Snaptrap Verminious Snaptrap, or simply known by his surname, Snaptrap, is the main antagonist of T.U.F.F. Puppy. He is the leader of the Diabolical Order of Mayhem, or D.O.O.M. for short.
Snaptrap's sole reason for villainy is actually rather humorous and ironic: he's the only rat in the world who is allergic to cheese. This may have plagued him his whole life until he went mad and formed D.O.O.M.
Role in the series
Verminious Snaptrap is the main villain in the series. His evil plans usually involve global domination or defeating T.U.F.F.. He was a T.U.F.F. agent for a short time in Snap Dad.
Snaptrap has the personality traits of arrogant, cowardly, unintelligent, sarcastic, temperamental, childish and psychotic with a high pitched, constantly cracking voice. He is also highly sadistic, as he enjoys throwing his henchmen (usually Larry) in the shark tank if they ever fail or annoy him. He is also shown to have strained family relations with his mother (as shown numerous times in the series). As shown in "Mall Rat", he is completely insane, as he made a girlfriend named Vivian out of soap. This insanity is also expressed because sometimes when he talks, he puts emphasis on one word, during which, his eyes spiral around, until he is finished saying the word, though this may be a possible cause of a tic disorder instead of insanity, possibly Tourette's Syndrome. He also has a slight lisp. Every time he is defeated (in an episode where he's the main antagonist), he says "I will now PLOT MY REVENGE!!!". He is incredibly vindictive and will get his revenge on anyone who defeats him. He is obsessed with ruling the world.
The majority of Snaptrap's crimes are normally petty or even silly and childish, and the majority of his more evil schemes he steals from his henchmen, despite this he is occasionally capable of true evil acts, such as trying to launch everyone in town into the sun, or trying to crash an iceberg into a cruise ship.
Interactions with Other Characters (Alphabetically)
Snaptrap and The Chief seem to have only one single integration in the episode Snap Dad when Snaptrap lied to him about the presence of the Easter Bunny.
Usually sees him as a threat due to always foiling his plans and despises him because of this.
Not much is known about Snaptrap and Francisco's past, but they seem to be good friends. Though, at times, Snaptrap gets a little sarcastic toward him. Francisco ate Snaptrap's pet hamster. They share bunk beds.
In Cruisin' for a Bruisin', Snaptrap apparently finds Keswick's karaoke worse than prison. In Snapnapped, Snaptrap begged Keswick to help rebuild D.O.O.M. and keep it on the cutting edge of technology. Keswick joined them, only to foil Snaptrap's plans, and this resulted in Snaptrap being sent to jail.
Usually sees her as a threat due to always foiling his plans and despises her because of this.
Snaptrap seems to despise Larry in the same way that Michael despises Toby in The Office. Michael is constantly insulting Toby, and Snaptrap seems to have a fiendish love of abusing Larry, firing lasers at him, and throwing him in the shark tank. In fact, feeding him to the sharks seems to be a running gag in the series. He's probably careful to not actually kill him, since Larry's married to his sister. However, in True Spies is revealed that he really does not hate Larry and only mistreats him because he believes he has great potential to be malignant, implying that Snaptrap's abuse is out of jealousy of Larry's better common sense rather than hatred.
Mrs. Snaptrap is Verminious Snaptrap's mom. She calls him a "reject" indicating that they have a poor relationship. It is shown that some of the devices that D.O.O.M. uses come from her.
Ollie is Snaptrap's voice of reason, whom he often ignores. A recurring gag in the series is that Ollie is the one who accidentally gives Snaptrap something cheese-related, either forgetting about his boss' cheese allergy or Snaptrap idiotically forgetting it himself.
