Ignignokt is the self-appointed leader of the Mooninites. He and his friend Err often bother the Aqua Teens with incredibly ridiculous plans. He is one of the main recurring villains in the series alongside Err.


Ignignokt's appearance is based on old Atari games, appearing as a blocky, indistinct blob of green pixels with stumpy blue limbs and a stoic expression, which rarely changes.


Ignignokt is an egotistical elitist who believes the Mooninites are superior to all other races in every way, despite their less-than-impressive technology and juvenile ways. Compared to Err, Ignignokt is much more calm and collected and speaks with a smooth, sexy, charismatic voice, although he is just as rude and condescending as Err, openly mocking and insulting others while promoting a lifestyle of drugs, porn and petty crimes.

Because of his beliefs on the Mooninites' superiority, Ignignokt proclaims that they have evolved beyond rules and manners, thus he and Err live a life of impulsive hedonism: stealing, vandalizing, smoking pot, drinking beer, reading porn, pulling pranks, and even hurting others, usually Carl.

Despite his sense of superiority, Ignignokt is also a bit of a coward- any time he feels threatened or realizes he's in a fight he can't win (typically from Frylock threatening him with his eye-beams), he will quickly turn tail and run, usually hopping back into his spaceship and flying away back to the Moon while flipping off his assailant from the safety of space.



Ignignokt owns a small laser pistol (which is also pixelated in design) which he calls "Mr. Laser". It fires an energy blast consisting of a single orange pixel, which moves extremely slowly while making a low, repetitive booping noise similar to an old Atari game. Though unimpressive, getting hit by this blast caused Carl to teleport all the way to the Moon.

Quad Glacier

There are two variations of this beam: the Quad Laser and the Quad Glazer, though their effects are unknown. The Quad Laser consists of Ignignokt and Err "locking in", snapping their bodies together at the head and pulling out four identical laser pistols, all of which fire a larger, slower-moving blast. The Quad Glazer (or Quad Glacier, according to Err) is a far larger and less impressive weapon, which was only used once by the Mooninites against Ol' Drippy in the episode The Last One. The Mooninites "duplicate, re-unite, and u-nihilate", forming a giant cannon with their bodies held up only by Err. The sheer weight of the cumbersome cannon causes Err's legs to break at the hips, after which it fires a gargantuan orange pixel far larger than the Quad Glacier. The blast is apparently harmless however, as Ol' Drippy pokes at it with no ill effect.

Relationships with Other Characters[]


Ignignokt simply hates Frylock for ruining his schemes and for being a "nerd." Frylock and Ignignokt often talk down to each other and have even gotten into fights, as they have some sort of battle for supremacy raging on. Unlike the majority of characters Ignignokt talks to, Frylock seems to never fall for Ignignokt's tricks.


Ignignokt and Err frequently take advantage of Meatwad's naivete, using him as a third set of hands in their petty crime sprees, such as using his shapeshifting abilities to steal a TV. Most other times, Ignignokt will simply bully Meatwad- throwing him at mailboxes, shoving cigarettes in his eye, and holding him underwater to name a few.

Master Shake[]

Ignignokt and Shake, despite not being friends, seem to get along fairly well, but this may be due to them being so similar to one another. Ignignokt is not above scamming Shake, however. In "Mayhem of the Mooninites," Shake allowed Ignignokt to rent out Meatwad's room, even though he never received payment beyond Meatwad's boom box. Other examples of Ignignokt's manipulation over Shake include "Remooned," "Moon Master," and "Moonajuana."


Ignignokt's relationship with Carl has not been very consistent. Originally, Ignignokt would often make Carl miserable by writing on Carl's car with a key, swimming in Carl's pool, stealing his pornography, [etc.] In Season 3, Ignignokt started treating Carl with a little more respect, which isn't saying a whole lot, because they still knocked him unconscious in "Remooned" and sold him useless and overpriced toys in "Moon Master."

The Plutonians[]

Ignignokt considers the Plutonians to be even more beneath him than the Aqua Teens. Ignignokt has stated on more than one occasion that "Plutonians are teh suck." It is never fully explained what this means. Oglethorpe seems to genuinely like Ignignokt in "The Last One," but they are sworn enemies in Spacecataz. In the Season 3 cold openings, the Mooninites and the Plutonians exchanged quite a few pranks before being killed due to the show's lack of continuity. This exchange of pranks is often exaggerated by fans to be a full-fledged war that continues to this day, even though a sequel to Spacecataz wasn't produced until Season 10.

  5. Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever Intro: Suffers his same death from the season 8 intro, but on a billboard.
  6. The Greatest Story Ever Told: Shot to death along with several past characters by the police.
  7. "Moon Master 9: Beware the Gorgatron": Disintegrates after running directly into the Quad Lazer bullet.


  • Ignignokt's name is often and widely misspelled as Ignignot or Ignignock. Even some streaming sites misspell his name, such as MAX, previously called HBO MAX.
  • Ignignokt's facial expression has changed several times in the series, including a mad face and smiling face. Err's facial expression has been known to change only twice, both being in Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm.
  • He doesn't make any appearances in Season 7 or Season 12.
  • According to the Volume One DVD commentary for "Mayhem of the Mooninites," Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro drew inspiration for the Mooninites from an urban legend. They had heard that there were so many returned copies of E.T. the Extra Terrestrial for Atari 2600 that the publishers buried them in the desert. Err and Ignignokt were originally intended to be the ghosts of that video game burial.
  • Ignignokt's face is in the direct center of his body. This means that he is always staring directly at the camera, unless his body is at an angle.
    • Furthermore, Ignignokt is the character who is facing the camera directly the most, unlike other characters whose bodies and faces are looking approximately 45 degrees to the side more often than not.
    • Ignignokt's name can be kind of hard to pronounce because some fan or people say and pronounce his name wrong.
