Gameboy is a character in the cartoon continuity of Captain N: The Game Master.
Gameboy is a computer from the Mirror World that was sent to Videoland by King Charles to help defeat Mother Brain. He is a member of the N Team and lives in the Palace of Power. He is voiced by Frank Welker.
Gameboy shows a childlike enthusiasm for going on adventures and learning new things. He tries very hard to help his teammates, though he sometimes upsets them with his extreme playfulness and his tendency to take their instructions too literally. He speaks in a computerized monotone.
- Flight: Gameboy moves by flying or hovering.
- Sensory Equipment: Gameboy can use his sensors to analyze objects or detect traps and danger in the environment. When Kevin was infected with a video virus, Gameboy served as his health monitor. ("Germ Wars")
- Matter Manipulation/Creation: Gameboy can reshape his screen and body into arms and weapons, allowing him to handle objects or attack enemies as needed. He can also create images on his screen and bring them to life, firing them as projectiles or creating allies to fight for him.
- Recharging: Gameboy can use a cable to recharge the Power Pad. ("The Invasion of the Paper Pedalers")
On February 14, 1990, Kenneth T. Ito, one of the producers at DiC, faxed Fil Barlow, asking him to do some initial designs for Gameboy. Fil thought it was a "dumb idea" and "overkill" to turn products into characters, but he did it anyway. On the night of February 16, he did the design sketches "really fast" (because he "didn't care") and faxed them.
Gameboy doesn't appear in the comic, as the comic series had began before he debuted on the show.
