"Behold, the Underminer! I'm always beneath you, but nothing is beneath me! I hereby declare war on peace and happiness! Soon, all will tremble before me!"
—The Underminer

The Underminer is a minor character in The Incredibles, and will return in Incredibles 2.

The Incredibles

The Underminer appears at the end of the movie, where he announces his "war on peace and happiness!" The Parr family then put on their masks, ready for battle. This led to such a cliffhanger that the creators of the original Incredibles video game created the sequel, The Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer.


  • Brad Bird had stated in the DVD commentary that John Ratzenberger having a part in every film was a Pixar tradition that he was originally not planning to use. However, he did end up giving Ratzenberger a part, with the joke being that his voice is the very last thing viewers hear in the film.
  • He appears to have robotic prosthetic hands.
  • In The Olympics sneak peak, he has a big money sucker (even sucking Mr. Incredible in it). It also is revealed to be used to suck money in with LEGO Juniors Underminer Bank Heist.
    • In the same sneak peak, Mr. Incredibles mentions that they are meeting once more, possibly indicating that he fought against him in the past.
  • Some fans had found a bit odd that The Underminer will be defeated at the beginning of the second film given that he was already defeated in The Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer (in which Ratzenberg reprised his role). This may be a hint, however, that Bird doesn't considers the game canonical.
