The Royal Dog clan is a kind pack of dogs under Princess Ava's command that helps anyone in need.


Avanti, the leader.


  • Avanti: The calm, collected, smooth-talking German Shepherd leader of the group. Though she prefers to keep things civil, she can be ruthless if the situation calls for it.
  • Blaze: Avanti's Mightyena assistant. He speaks with a slight Italian accent and never takes off his favorite blue collar.
  • Apophis: Avanti's newphew. He is a flirtatious charmer one minute and an almost invincible warrior the next. His power lies in his strength, precision, and silent strike. He falls in love with and marries Eva.
  • Lord Shen: The Zorua heir to the Gongmen City throne. He tries to be brave, but is prone to panic attacks and general cowardice. In his youth, he was obsessed with the idea of using gunpowder to enhance the military's weapons.
  • Master Wolf: Zull's mortal enemy. He is credited with not only founding Pocketville, but also bringing peace to the land.
  • Master Riolu: Despite her stern and serious mask, she does have a soft side, particularly when it comes to children. She had a crush on Blaze as a teenager, but has since told Avanti that he's the closest thing to a brother she's ever had.
