Him (voiced by Tom Kane) is a villain in the animated television series, The Powerpuff Girls. He is regarded as their most powerful and dangerous enemy, even compared to Mojo.
A mysterious, super-powerful, red-skinned, effeminate, and immortal devil-like creature with scorpion/crab/lobster-like hands, lobster-like skin, pointed ears, black puffy hair, yellow-green eyes, a hooked nose and a long, curled beard, wearing makeup, including three long eyelashes on each eyelid, rosy red cheeks and black lipstick, a lady's red jacket and skirt with pink tulle at the collar and hemline, and black, thigh-high, spike-heeled boots (ballet boots). It's implied that he may be the devil Satan in The Powerpuff Girls due to his cross-dressing attire, but he is so sinister, so evil, so horribly vile that his real name "can never be said", though it is possible that the name "Him" comes from His Infernal Majesty.
He is the ultimate embodiment of pure evil, and talks in a chilling voice that echoes at all times as if in a cave. He has two distinct manner of speaking; one is high-pitched and effeminate and sounds like Tiny Tim, and the other is growling and very sinister. They begin to switch back and forth, especially from soft and sweet when effeminate to loud and aggressive when evil.
He made his first ever appearance in "Octi Evil" where he possessed Bubbles’ stuffed octopus, Octi in an attempt to break The Powerpuff Girls up and he cleverly disguised his own voice to lure her into his trap.
His next main episode was in "Telephonies" where he is one of the villains The Powerpuff Girls visit to investigate the prank phone calls. It is also revealed that he can alter his own voice at will, changing from feminine and chirpy to masculine and angry in just 3 seconds. He also formed a "partnership" with Mojo and Fuzzy when they discovered the Gangreen Gang were behind the calls. It is also shown that Mojo calls Him "sir" and has some respect for him.
During "Tough Love", he used his own powers to spread the seeds of anger and hatred into Townsville at night which triggered the residents rising up against The Powerpuff Girls and unwillingly becoming his puppets.
While most villains prefer to destroy Townsville themselves or through their own sheer strength, Him often orchestrates events and psychological tortures in an attempt to drive The Powerpuff Girls apart or even insane, many of which often come close to succeeding. He has shown numerous satanic forms, most of which are revealed in apocalyptic or hellish situations or realms. These forms, in turn can often greatly enhance his power and cause him to grow to enormous size.
In "Speed Demon", set fifty years into an alternative future and with The Powerpuff Girls themselves having gone missing, Him managed to gain control of the entire planet including Townsville which in turn, resulted in his powers becoming great, able to take The Powerpuff Girls' punches head-on to absolutly no effect. In this setting, he was also able to change into a much larger and more sinister-looking version of himself.
When forced to engage in battle, he is an entity to be reckoned with, as he heralds doom in every direction.
He is undoubtedly the most powerful villain of all, as other villains envy him and even Mojo, the most persistent of the villains, feels uneasy around him. His powers are so great that in "The Boys are Back in Town", he was capable of resurrecting The Rowdyruff Boys and immunizing them against past effects of the girls' cootie kisses as well as moving and halting the sun just by waving his claw. The Powerpuff Girls themselves are often unsure how to fight him as well.
Him has a rubbery duck named Mr. Quackers and somehow, he has a plan to put an end to the Powerpuff Girls. His voice and mannerisms were inspired by the Chief of the Blue Meanies in Yellow Submarine. His physical appearance is an amalgamation of sorts, borrowing a mix of concepts and imagery in regards to Satan with cross-dresser attire.
