Jo-Adians are a race of large dinosaur-like creatures living on the planet Jo-Ad. These are Booster Munchapper's race, and are famous for their agricultural ways.


Typical Jo-Adians are large, round, and often colored different shades of red, with a paler ventral portion and a pattern of large dark diamond-shaped spots on the back. Their reptilian-looking skin is described as "thick" and capable of resisting plasma attacks. They have wide mouths with many teeth, four of which appear to be canine-like fangs. They have small, pointed ears and no noses, and their eyes have pink or yellow scleras and pale markings below the eyebrow ridge. They are usually heavily built, with some Jo-Adians weighing up to 500 UMMUs (Universal Mass Measuring Units).

Jo-Adians are omnivores, consuming both plants (especially bunzels, their primary food crop) and meat. They are capable of consuming what most would consider large amounts of food in one sitting. Despite their appetite and what appears to be a predisposition towards being overweight, the majority of their body mass is in fact muscle. Their brains are not entirely in their heads, with some portions existing in their hindquarters.[1]

During the bunzel harvesting season, if a Jo-Adian does not help with the harvest, they develop "bunzel fever", turn physically monstrous, and mistake everything they see for a bunzel to be harvested.[2] This odd phenomenon is never explained.

They all possess super strength.


Jo-Adians evolved from large horned Ankylosaurus-like creatures as seen in "Devolutionaries". They easily dwarf other beings and are able to charge with their horns or use their tail as a weapon.


Jo-Adian culture is rarely touched upon in the series, although the planet seems largely built on agricultural values. One aspect of their culture that is touched on is the aforementioned "bunzel fever", which seems to be considered a superstition by the younger generation of Jo-Adians; however, in the episode of the same name, it is shown to be a real phenomenon.


It is unknown if Jo-Adians have any government.


Presumably none as no military forces were seen during the attacks on the planet.

Notable Jo-Adians

Jo-Adian Homeworld


  • Jo-Adians appear to rarely leave their planet. The only off-world Jo-Adian ever seen is Space Ranger Booster Munchapper, while his family and friends appear to rarely, if ever, leave their home planet.
