No Heart is the primary villain of Nelvana's The Care Bears Family television series where he made his debut in the very first episode together with his funny looking and oddly acting minion, Beastly. See Care-a-Lot's Birthday for more info on No Heart's debut.
In the second season of the series, he is joined by his tedious, yet lovely niece Shreeky, whose trademark shrieks have the power to transform him into a creepy animal without him wanting to become one.
He lives in his castle inside a storm cloud. The clouds of the storm cloud change color in nearly every episode. Which is quite odd but intriguing. This is obviously something the creators added due to real life facts. No two storm clouds are EXACTLY the same.
Care Bears Family
His face is never visible, it is shrouded behind a purple hoodie with red eyes that glow at times. He has unusual greenish eyebrows that are the only visible features. What ever he transforms into is greenish and blue violet with red eyes and puffy fluffy eyebrows, like in his man/wizard form.
Care Bears Comics
In the comics, No Heart looks different than in the the TV series. His robe is blue, and his skin is some sort of pea-green. His eyes are red, black and yellow .The point of his hood is longer and has white point attached to it.
An evil sorcerer and shape-shifter who commands a lot of magic spells, similar to Dark Heart from the 2nd movie. His goal is to destroy both the Care Bears and all caring in the world from his home (since he rarely likes to go out), which rests atop a perpetual storm cloud. His reasons for why he hates the Care Bears and wants to rid he world of caring are never made clear. But he claims in one episode that the reason he wants to get rid of caring is that he is evil, and simply because he (thinks) he can take over whatever he wants.
He is almost always mad or irritable or even very angry, and always prone to losing his temper; this can have devastating effects when he flies in a fit of fury, as he becomes furious when Grumpy manages to stand in his way, and in Birthday Bear's Blues began wrecking the equipment of his cauldron room in fury after the Care Bears laughed at him after they defeated him, wanting to finish them off once and for all. In the latter of these instances, he ended up devising a plan that actually almost managed to destroy the Care Bears. Like it happens in each and every episode.
Oddly, he seems to keep control of his temper in the episode The Wrath of Shreeky, and didn't do anything to Beastly and Shreeky, even when they messed up his lab and ruined his plans to get rid of the care bears.
He is fairly dark and serious for a care bears character, as in Birthday Bear's Blues, he comments that he will be having "lamb-chops" when he turned into a tiger in the maze and located Gentle Heart Lamb, implying he planned on actually eating the Care Bears and Care Cousins, especially in that episode in order to defeat them. Also, when displeased with Dr. Fright 's failure, No Heart transforms into a bat, and carries him away, promising to show him "what fear means", suggesting that he planned to do something unpleasant to him.
- He can use magic, like any evil wizards/sorcerers.
- No Heart is specialized in transformation. When he wants to leave his castle, transforms into a tornado or lightning, to travel. Most of his larger spells involve the use of his cauldron and his amulet and a lot other items. Interestingly, most of his magic seems to be only performed in his castle. The reason is unclear.
- In Grumpy's Three Wishes, it is shown that he can use up his power, and it is suggested that his amulet must be recharged like a battery. This might be the reason he doesn't use magic outside of his castle
- He also commands his dark Shadows, and it is possible he may have created them, since he even said so in one episode.
- Ceratopsidea dinosaur
- Lightning (when travelling)
- Tornado (when travelling)
No Heart is known to own the following:
- A Magic Amulet
- An assistant (Beastly)
- A castle
- A thunder pit
- A fireplace (where he threw Beastly in, in one episode)
- A niece (Shreeky)
- A Cauldron used for spells
- The clothes he wears (Does not count as equipment. They just make him look mysterious/awesome)
- A small dragon like creature (Once)
- A demon in a box (Once)
His life before the events in the television series is virtually unknown. However, it is implied that he's been terrorizing the Care Bears and the Care Bear Cousins for a long period of time. At least since they were very little.It was revealed that No Heart was born on Friday the 13th and is more than 200 years old.
Care Bears Family
No Heart made his first ever appearance in the debut episode of Nelvana's Care Bears Family television series during Care-a-Lot's annual "birthday" celebration, where he orders Beastly to capture a Care Bear so he can test his new gemstone amulet on it. Making off with Baby Hugs and Tugs, Beastly returns them to the castle only to have their childish antics grate his nerves to the point where he pleads the other bears to rescue them. While No Heart attempts to stop the interlopers, Tugs sneaks behind him and throws his gemstone into a pit as they make their escape.
He was defeated in Care-A-Lot when only Grumpy Bear was around, only to be repelled by his recently acquired super-strength thanks to a wish on a magic clover. He later attempted to have Beastly become king of Care-a-Lot for a day by fixing an annual obstacle race, but, despite his rampant cheating, the lackey could only settle for second place, running off whining like a little bitch.
Proud Heart gets a present unknowingly from Beastly which floods the Care Bear Cousins out of house and home. Dr. Fright, who trapped some of the bears in his amusement park, but ended up botching the plan in the end, which ended the team up between them.No Heart unleashes a demon to destroy the Care Bears as they drive a herd of helpless little stars to Big Star Point. Attempting to let someone else but Beastly do his work, No Heart had a short-lived team-up with
Trying to pick the bears off one by one, he later lured them into a hedge maze he corrupted with magical thorns, unable to find the exit, while transforming into a tiger, but was once again defeated when they were able to coordinate their Care Bear Stare from several locations at once. In this episode, it is implied he plans on eating the care bears while in his tiger form. Beastly uses No Heart's broken amulet to transform into serveral creatures and capture the Care Bears, while they are on a caring mission. During this episode, No Heart gains a replacement amulet, because of Beastly. When attempting to make up a massive spell that would summon a "Cloud of Uncaring" to cover the world, he ran aground when faced with the combined caring of the bears and a boy named Dale.
No Heart would get a new house guest in the form of his niece Shreeky, who attempted to one-up her uncle by destroying the Care Bears when he could not. While her first outing as a villain didn't exactly go as planned, she solidified herself as a "bad girl" well enough, and became a recurring accomplice in the angelic pretty's plans. When Beastly's latest foul-up turns No Heart's experiment into a cloud monster, his niece, Shreeky, attempts to use it to devour all of Care-a-Lot until it is stopped by Bright Heart Raccoon. Later, he attempts to corrupt the residents of a small Earth town with his Un-Caring Bubbles, even transforming Beastly into a more evil version of himself in the process, but the whole plan goes south when Beastly's attempts to destroy the only thing capable of stopping the bubbles, the Caring Crystals, ends up making him a good guy and actually helping the Care Bears.
After taking all the blame for messing up one of No Heart's spells, the really mad sorcerer actually disowned Beastly at one point, but ended up wanting him back after Shreeky cloned herself to take over his chores, which was more than he could handle. Champ Bear abandons his patrol duties at the Caring Meter, covering the town in uncaring smoke. But this was foiled by the last-minute intervention of his friends. He makes another attempt at fogging up the town and sending Shreeky and Beastly to destroy the beacon at the top of the town's tower, but is stopped by a group of bears while Cheer Bear and Treat Heart Pig take care of his flunkies.The villain would make yet another attempt on an unguarded Care-a-Lot when
Comic SeriesNo Heart makes several appearances in Star Comics' Care Bears comic book series beginning with the issue 11 story "The Who Cares Bears". After Mr. Beastly makes a comment that his shadow servants are too noticeable, No Heart gets the idea to make his own team of evil Care Bears to ruin the real one's reputation. By placing four of his shadow minions inside special molds infused with magic, he creates the Who Cares Bears, who proceed to wreak havoc on a school. The real Care Bears eventually show up and challenge them to a duel during an assembly, where Beastly accidentally drops sandbags on the fake bears and destroys them.
There are also serveral other stories, one featuring another 80's toyline: The Madballs.
- No Heart, like many of the Care Bears main villains, has "heart" at the end of his name, including Professor Coldheart and Dark Heart. This might suggest that they are related. But this is unlikely.
- In the episode "The Long Lost Care Bears", it is said that Perfect and Polite Panda ran away from Care-a-Lot as cubs because they were frightened of No Heart. This implies that the villain was actively attacking the Care Bears long before they even grew up (even before Professor Coldheart), though this is not substantiated in any other stories. Though depending on which continuity one would follow, this would imply that TrueHeart and NobleHeart were dealing with Noheart and Darkheart around the same time.
- Chris Wiggins - the third-class actor who voiced No Heart- also voiced The Great Wishing Star in Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation.
- At the end of the episode "The All Powerful Mr. Beastly", No Heart remarks that, after getting a new amulet, that this ones lightning crystal has ten times of the power of the old one, though this is never showcased in future episodes.
