Fictional Characters Wiki


Mordecai is one of the two main protagonists (alongside Rigby) of Cartoon Network's Regular Show. He is a six-foot tall blue jay who works as a groundskeeper for a park. He is voiced by J.G. Quintel.


Mordecai shares a room with his coworker Rigby. He seems to be the more mature of the two, and is sometimes put off or frustrated at Rigby's creativity and unwillingness to keep their jobs. This is further supported in the episode "The Power", in which Rigby punches a hole in the wall and suggests hamboning to make Benson give them raises so they could pay to fix it. It appears that he is stronger than Rigby, as seen when they play punchies. He always beats Rigby (though he fakes losing at the end of "Death Punchies" episode).

As proven in "Grilled Cheese Deluxe", Mordecai is a better liar than Rigby because Rigby told the truth to Benson about the grilled cheese deluxe but he didn't believe him so Mordecai lied that they "ran over it by accident."


Mordecai is usually more mature than Rigby as shown in many episodes. He has a crush on Margaret Smith although she doesn't notice it. He can be angry at Rigby for being a idiot like in "Meat Your Maker", he snapped because Rigby can't fix anything so he said "you pissed me off". Mordecai is also a slacker like Rigby plays video games other than working. In "Brain Eraser", he saw Pops naked so he would do anything to get that memory removed.


Mordecai is a blue jay although he isn't seen flying. like birds, he has a beak to talk. Mordecai is tall with arm-like wings. He is light blue, black and white. He has three feathers on the back to act as a tail. And his legs are long and have two toes each foot.


  • Rigby: has been Mordecai's best friend ever since they were kids as seen in a flashback in the episode "Don". They usually play video games and slack off together instead of working. However, Mordecai can be angry at Rigby at times such as in "Grilled Cheese Deluxe" when Mordecai got in a bet with Rigby on who would win on a lying contest. But still Mordecai says Rigby is like a brother to him.
  • Margaret: is Mordecai's main crush in the show. She is a close friend with Mordecai but doesn't know he has a crush on her. In "It's Time", Mordecai has tried to ask Margret out to watch Pajama Sisters 2 but he doesn't know to talk to girls.
  • Benson: doesn't like Mordecai because he usually slacks off instead of working. Although Mordecai doesn't get in trouble more often than Rigby.
