Dr. Strangeglove (also formatted as Dr Strangeglove) is Monstro City's ancient enemy, known for his evil deeds towards Moshlings and identified by his trademark singular purple glove, hence his name. He is a rather temperamental member of C.L.O.N.C. and one of its founders, but due to him constantly failing and going by his own agenda, it is unclear if he is still allowed in the organization.
Dr. Strangeglove graduated with Elder Furi on unknown studies. He dubs himself a "Glumpodynamicist" (as stated in the movie) and formerly a Doctor of Moshlingology In the past he has taken the role of Sinister Minister, Choir singer, Geeks and Freaks Anonymous president and Moshling Chess Club player.

Becoming a baddie
Before he became the most-wanted villain in the City, Lavender Troggs (as he was once known) was a Doctor of Moshlingology at the Super Moshiversity. He turned on Moshlings and became truly evil when a Musky Husky mistook his right hand for some sausages and chomped it off! This terribly naughty genius has now set his sights on taking over Monstro City - and then the world!

With Elder Furi
After Elder Furi found out about the doctor's experimenting on Moshlings, which he did as he was taken in by the C.L.O.N.C. Leader for his talents, he told on him and got Strangeglove to drop out of university.
Strangeglove somehow did not fully resent Elder Furi and confronted him on Mount Sillimanjaro to request to join forces to take over the world (though it was not established if this involved C.L.O.N.C. or not).
Elder Furi most likely declined and may or may not have been responsible for letting the ambitious doctor fall off the mountain and to not be seen for many years after. After his return "ancient evil" Strangeglove got back into Moshling abduction and Glumps creation but Elder Furi was prepared and had formed the Super Moshis to stop the ordeal.
In the confrontation they had in Super Weapon Showdown, Elder Furi hammers on referring to Strangeglove as "Lavender Troggs" in an attempt to talk him into dropping evil but ignores Strangeglove's pleas to stop referring to him as such as that "sweet boy does not exist anymore". If Elder Furi attempted such an approach before is unclear but Strangeglove's frustration with his past name usage suggests so.
Elder Furi is aware of Strangeglove's trauma and makes use of this knowledge by keeping a group of Musky Huskies in his cabin atop Mount Sillimanjaro; Strangeglove notes this in Snow Way Out!
Nowadays, they spy on each other to see what the opposing team is up to.
With the Glumps
Strangeglove is generally rude and commanding toward the species as a whole, but this is likely due to the fact that he created them, thus giving him a sense of superiority. However, he has been shown to sway with this, having a rather open relationship with Rocko, who misbehaves under his watch but gets away with it; for example, he read out Strangeglove's Christmas Wishlist on the Twistmas With Strangeglove disc, with Strangeglove being right next to him.
- With Fishlips
- Fishlips accompanied Strangeglove in Moshi Monsters: The Movie as a sidekick. Strangeglove often questions Fishlips' many perks, such as his dressing up as Flumpy and ridicules him, but is aware that Fishlips will still remain loyal; this is the case with each other Glump, for that matter.
Although it isn't as manifested or as open-ended as it is with Glumps the species, due to Strangeglove's Glumping capabilities and general hatred of them in return, seems to fear Strangeglove to the extent that they will downright avoid him. Strangeglove also experimented on the species as Lavender Troggs just prior to his new identity though the test subject, a Musky Husky, bit off his finger, mistaking it for a pair of sausages.
Before Dr. Strangeglove
Before he became Dr. Strangeglove, he was known as Lavender Troggs. The earliest his history goes back is when he graduated from Super Moshiversity with Elder Furi, when the two were still best friends. What happened next is largely a mystery, since it has never really been expounded on, but a likely suggestion is that the two parted ways in their jobs; Strangeglove would become a Doctor of Moshlingology and Sinister Minister during the Glunge Age, whereas Elder Furi (then Younger Furi) would gain this new identity.
When he was still at university, it was noted that he had "all manner of achievements", including singing in the school choir, playing for the Moshling Chess Club and being president of Geeks and Freaks Anonymous. He also briefly engaged in strange science and ancient 'Walla Walla Hoohaa' magic.Moshipedia
As stated by all three of his biographies, he began to hate Moshlings after a Musky Husky mangled his left hand, mistaking it for a pair of sausages. This went to the extent that he would join C.L.O.N.C. (not found it, a popular belief) and create the Glumping Machine, which would turn Moshlings into Glumps. This made Elder Furi strive to stop him through the Super Moshis, something he successfully did by the end of the Season 1 Missions.
Lavender Troggs' new identity is an anagram of his initial namesake, switching the lettering to form Dr. Strangeglove.
As Elder Furi knows him before that time, he refers to him with his first name. Strangeglove has voiced not wanting to be called that,Super Weapon Showdown a possible desire of wanting to forget the past (he worked closely with Moshlings, after all). He even refers to the Super Moshiversity days as "old times"; he realises that evilness is "good for him", and being a goody two-shoes like him is simply unfulfilling.
New beginnings as Dr. Strangeglove
Voyage Under Potion Ocean
- Main article: Season 1: Mission 2: Voyage Under Potion Ocean
Sometime between joining C.L.O.N.C. and Voyage Under Potion Ocean, he created the Glumping Device, as Glumps were already seen to exist by this mission. In this mission, Strangeglove can be seen kidnapping Fumble, who lay sunbathing on Bleurgh Beach. He would then disappear to some sludge-like "Strange Goo", Fumble in hand.
Strangeglove From Above
- Main article: Season 1: Mission 3: Strangeglove From Above
Despite his alias being in the mission's title, he makes a minor appearance in the mission.
His first mention is when the protagonist Super Moshi must anger Nimbus by informing her of Strangeglove's wrongdoing. This goes on to reveal his three main motives: stealing Moshlings, turning them into Glumps, and forming a Glump Army to take over Monstro City. In addition, he can be seen talking to Sweet Tooth about "everything going to plan", but the Super Moshi that investigates this is caught by Squiff, who alerts them of the intruder.
Snow Way Out!
- Main article: Season 1: Mission 9: Snow Way Out!
In this mission, Strangeglove appears at the very end and captures the protagonist, having a discussion with them that ultimately results in him leaving them stranded atop Mount Sillimanjaro. Strangeglove also mentions the previous mission and declares Simon Growl's involvement with C.L.O.N.C., insults Elder Furi as a "bearded old fool", but concedes anxiousness when faced by the Musky Huskies in Elder Furi's cabin atop the mountain. He reveals the plans of the super weapon in Season 1: Mission 10: Super Weapon Showdown, too, foreshadowing it.
Super Weapon Showdown
- Main article: Season 1: Mission 10: Super Weapon Showdown
In Super Weapon Showdown, Strangeglove's glove is revealed to be detachable, as it has been found crawling around Monstro City. Later on, the player must fight Strangeglove in a game of "Strange-pong" (parody of ping-pong), where they must avoid projectiles sent from him and hit Glumps back at him, ultimately causing the demise of his dreams. He would later talk to Elder Furi, who orders the protagonist to leave, and Strangeglove reveals that he has a hatred for his name and past, that evilness has given him purpose, and that being a goody two-shoes like he once was was boring.
His original name, Lavender Troggs, is also revealed here.
Moshi Monsters: The Movie
- Main article: Moshi Monsters: The Movie
In Moshi Monsters: The Movie, Dr. Strangeglove stars as an antagonist voiced by Ashley Slater. His motives are identical to that of his Season 1 Mission ones, except his aim is to get the Great Moshling Egg; by hatching such, he can create a Mega Glump that will lead his army to victory over Monstro City.
He is the man behind most of the mishappenings in the film. Things such as the vandalisation of the Bumblechops Manor and the misadventures of the protagonists name some.
However, he is shown to have some outliers in personality; he can be comedic, as shown by his dancing to Moptop Tweenybop, and bounces off Fishlips a lot conforming to this comedic style.
- Season 1 Missions 2, 3, 5 (mention), 6 (mention), 8, 9 and 10; has not appeared in any mission outside of Season 1 due to his defeat and assumed removing from C.L.O.N.C.
- The Doctor Will See You Now - his music video
- Moshi Monsters: The Movie - main antagonist
- Four Claw Hi Yaa Hurricane - antagonist
- Katsuma Unleashed - one of the bosses
- The Daily Growl - multiple interviews and mentions, but has hosted it before as a "Dreaditor"
- Strangeglove's Secret Lab Sticker Activity Book - focuses on his secret lab; main character
Dr. Strangeglove's design is like that of a classic villain's, with a curly moustache that he frequently pulls, a top hat, a walking stick and generally a use of dark colours. The difference, however, is that he is not wearing a costume, he is his costume. Often his eyes (which are a dark purple) are shown from under the top of his hat.
His mannerisms and abilities assume him to be some type of phantom.
Aside being able to place various object on his hand, his walking stick also has various functions, shown to be able to shoot darts and can become a portable helicopter. It has the C.L.O.N.C. symbol on it.
In an interview in the Moshi Monsters Magazine: Issue 48, he reveals his hat to be his head. However, an image from his Moshiversity graduation shows him wearing a different hat, and a possible head is visible underneath the hat. Thus, this image means it is likely impossible for his hat to be his physical head.
- Dr. Strangeglove's first glove attachment was an egg whisk and this is because he loves scrambled eggs.
- Dr. Strangeglove's Moshi Monsters: The Movie voice, performed by Ashley Slater, also voices Zommer.
- Dr. Strangeglove's name is a pun of Dr. Strangelove, an American satirical film.
- Dr. Strangeglove's favourite colour is gold.
