Tangeans are the native inhabitants of the planet Tangea. Unlike other species, the Tangeans are split into two highly divergent races: Tangean Royals and Tangean Grounders. The Royals are commonly referred to as Tangeans by both themselves and outsiders, whereas the Grounders are simply referred to as Grounders despite both races, living on the same planet, being Tangean.

They are generally humanoid with blue skin. Some of them are shown to have abnormally long necks, and most have pointy ears. They are able to move through solid objects.

Tangean Grounders

They have pinkish to tannish colored skin and elongated heads. They are bald, and are capable of emitting mind pulses. Tangean Grounders and Tangean Royals cancel each other's powers out when near each other.


Little is known of Tangean history.


Tangean Royals

  • Phasing: Tangeans can phase through solid objects thanks to their powers of intangibility.
  • Telepathy: They can read people's minds and possess several telepathic abilities.
    • Mind Manipulation: They are able to erase and control the memories of others and even change the phase-minds of people.

Tangean Grounders

They are able to shoot energy beams from their foreheads.


Tangean Royals

They believe themselves to be superior to other species (except for some, like Mira Nova) and are upper-class, often wearing fancy clothing. They do not bother building doors, since they can phase through solid objects.

Tangean Grounders

The Grounders appear to be more "rough" than the Tangean Royals, but other than this, very little is known.


Tangean Royals

The Royals are ruled by a monarchy, hence their name. The current ruler of Tangea is King Nova, and the heir to the throne is his daughter Mira. Their palace is located in a floating city above the surface.

Tangean Grounders

Their style of government is unknown, since they are just shown in groups.


No details are known about the Tangean military, but the Tangean Royals are shown to have guards, while the Grounders seem to lean towards a militia-style military.

  • The name "Tangean" is derived from their ability to become intangible.
