The Amoeba Boys are incompetent supervillains in the animated TV series The Powerpuff Girls.

No origin has been goven for the Amoeba Boys


Where the Amoeba Boys came from has never been revealed. They are first seen being such incompetent criminals that the Powerpuff Girls decided to teach them how to do it properly.  On another occasion, the Boys attempted to commit the crime of standing on the grass with a keep off the grass sign.  Though they failed to attract any infamy, they ended up catching a cold that, due to their unique biology, created a new illness similar to the common cold that left Townsville incapacitated.  After Buttercup berates the Boys on their incompetence, the Boys decide to leave town.  When Professor Utonium, the Girls' father and creator, discovers that the Boys were both responsible and capable of providing a cure, he sent the Girls to retrieve them.  Eventually, they agreed to go with them, but only after the Girls gave them their demand: to be taken by force via a superhero/villain battle.  They are and though the Girls are severely weakened by their sickness, the Amoeba Boys are still easily defeated and comply.

The Amoeba Boys next appeared in an attempt to ruin the Girls birthday, though due to their incompetance, they merely gave them dolls as gifts.

Later, the Amoeba Boys unintentionally stumble across the evil plans of Mojo Jojo, the Girls' archvillain.  The Boys, unaware of what they are holding, are approached by the Powerpuff Girls, who are equally unaware and mistakenly think that the incompetant villains are on some sort of scavenger hunt.  The Girls' help them out and nearly get themselves destroyed by Jojo's plan, only to be saved by Jojo himself, who didn't want anyone else to take credit for defeating the Girls.

After some minor appearances, the Boys returned for what they believed to be their greatest crime: stealing an orange.  After seeing orange segments divide, they learned to physically divide and make copies of themselves, after which the army of Amoeba Boys began to cause trouble. The girls eventually realized that by pushing them into their other selfs, they could merge all the copies together, leaving them with three pushover Amoeba Boys.

The Amoeba Boys where among many villains who were defeated by a mysterious Gnome who went onto conquer Townsville, though they were later freed.
