Sypher is the ninth episode of the first season.

Summary

Drake Sypher possesses the power to absorb the abilities of anyone that touches him, and decides he should be the one person getting the fame and glory of being a hero. He first steals the abilities of a star "Basherball" player and scores the winning shot, then steals Ace and Rev's abilities since the two were in attendance at the game. Zadavia assigns Lexi as the team leader and sends the Loonatics to stop a dam from bursting, where Sypher fights the team and adds Lexi and Slam's powers to his own. Duck is then made the leader of the team.

During a parade, Tech and Duck’s powers are taken in a fight with Sypher. Tech builds special suits for the Loonatics to fight Sypher. They attack and realize Sypher is trying to keep away from them. The Loonatics figure out that they can touch Sypher in order to get their abilities back. After taking back their powers from Sypher, the Loonatics defeat him and Sypher is sent to jail. Zadavia congratulates them and tells Duck he is not the leader anymore.

Major Events

  • This is the first and only time that Rev speaks at a regular rate of speed as opposed to speaking incredibly fast.

Debuts

Characters

Goofs

  • The animation is inconsistent with the discolored eyes indicating which Loonatics have been the victims of Sypher's power-stealing; sometimes the affected Loonatics have their normal eye colors and unaffected Loonatics have discolored eyes before having their powers taken.

Quotes

Ace: 36 kilometers per hour?
Tech: 18, actually. I doubled it to be nice.

Drake Sypher: The name's Sypher, and I always wanted to meet the hottest superhero in town!
Lexi: What?

Lexi: Reports? Since when do we write reports?

Trivia

  • This is the first time the Loonatics are seen wearing the battle suits.
  • The only Loonatics who watch the Basherball game are Ace Bunny and Rev Runner.
  • This was the last episode to air in 2005.
  • This episode had a few reference from Space Jam , Where Sypher first appear in the beginning in the game basherball where he stole and absorbs some ability to make him look more talented like how the "Nerdlucks" did it during the basketball game and before they became the Monstars. Especially at the end like in the movie the Loonatics got their powers back together by touching sypher exactly how the nerdlucks and the victims of the NBA also touch something to gain or regain powers .
  • When sypher had Rev Runner speeding power is also a predicament for "Space jam a new legacy" when Roadrunner was out speeded by the goon squad team champion/leader Chronos .
