Vinnie, full name possibly being Vincent, is a character voiced by Ian Ziering and the resident hothead of the trio.

BackgroundEdit

Vinnie was a Freedom Fighter back during the Martian-Plutarkian War on Mars. Like his fellow Fighters (and best friends) Throttle and Modo he was trained by Stoker, the founder of the group. In riding and fighting, Vinnie is actually the closest to Stoker's style, something that actually caused the young mouse quite the inferior complex back on Mars: even his howl is quite similar to the ex-leader.

He was injuried in the same explosion that costed Modo his right arm and Throttle his eyes:the right side of his face was burned and scarred, and he covers it with a mask made of flex-plate shielding given to him by Harley.

In the beginning of the series he was travelling in space with Modo and Throttle (for reasons that are never explained) until their ship was shot down by a plutarkian destroyer and landed in Chicago. Here, he and his bros found out about Limburger, a Plutarkian in disguise who was trying to strip mining Earth like Mars was. Unable to return home for the moment, they decided to remain in Chicago to stop him, with the help of the human mechanic Charlene "Charlie" Davidson..

Appearance Edit

Vinnie is a muscular Martian mouse with white fur. Having been damaged in battle, he wears a metal mask on the right side of his face. He has two studs in his left ear. He is usually shirtless and but he wears a green X-cross bandoleer on his bare chest, and wields expanding flares as well. He wears the biker mice signature belt with dark blue jeans and studs on the sides. He has the usual shinguards and has black boots. He is also the shortest of the Biker Mice, but he is taller than Charlie.

In the 2006 version, he is less muscular and looks a bit younger. The only difference is his pants replaced with blue jeans and slightly different boots.

Equipment Edit

His bandoleer is equipped with different kinds of flares. Some are burners for melting metal or bombs,capable of creating explosion or simply a source of light.

In the 2006 version, Vinnie's bandoleer has pockets that hold different energy powered shurikens. They seem to replace the flares. Some are explosive. In "It's the Pits", he uses the flares again, commenting that it was "old school, but feels right." He uses them again is "Driver's Ed" to cut a hole in a Catatonian vehicle to throw in explosive shurikens.

Character Edit

Vinnie is undoubtedly the most reckless and risk-chaser of the group. He will gladly take the most dangerous tasks for himself, and his idea of a good time is facing the biggest treat to his life he can find. As shown in "The Biker Knights of The Round Table", a week without fighting leaves him an angry, nervous wreck which go around punching holes through brick walls due to frustration.

Despite his bravado, he actually suffers from an inferior complex towards who he believes more skilled than him. This was particularly evident back on Mars, where he would try to imitate and surpass his mentor Stoker (which often ended in failure) and he was worried about not having a chance with Harley, due to Stoker also having a crush on her.

Speaking of girls,despite considering himself a lady-killer and a Casanova, he is actually pretty shy with them: he would usually flirt and doesn't fell downhearted when he is brushed off, but he would blush and act bashful when he is receving affection (like when Charley blowed him a kiss in "Road Raven").

Relationships Edit

Throttle: Vinnie is extremely close to the leader, despite at times acting as an annoying younger brother to him. He respects him enough to trust him and follow his orders and strategies on the battlefield (even if he sometimes ask to change Throttle' s tactic with another that makes him look cooler) .

Modo: Vinnie and Modo have a deep friendship tinted with an air of younger sibling (Vinnie)- older sibling (Modo) dynamic.

Charley: Vinnie has been physically attracted to Charley since their first meeting in "Rock and Ride", and he has been playfully flirting with her since then. He has been shown to be jealous when other people considered her attractive (Stoker) or she was infatuated with someone else (Sir Lanciloth ). While it has never been clear if he is actually in love with her, he is extremely protective of her, often refusing to bring her in battle with them. Threatening her is a sure way to make him lose control ("Back on Mars" part two).

Trivia Edit

  • Vinnie has called himself "Vinnie Wan Hamm" in a few occasions. According to Tom Tataranowicz (the series' producer) it's not his full name, but a nickname he conied himself.
  • He is the youngest of the protagonists (21).
  • He is a fan of the in-universe "Headbangers comics".
