The sometimes good guys, sometimes bad guys, whose only loyalty is to the highest bidder!
Sketches of The Topplegangers

The Topplegangers are the shady mercenary commando biker gang and book club whose action figures were seen in 8-Bit is Enough. The members are Swampslash, Subtlefuge, Dryghost, and Fudgeclank. They fight for either side, depending on who is the highest bidder, and reside in their hideout.

The gang is likely a reference to Zartan's mercenary group, the Dreadnoks, from the G.I. Joe toyline by Hasbro.

The group is further mentioned in 2 Part Episode: Part 1. The members of the Cheat Commandos who had been fired decided to enlist their help in breaking Blue Laser Commander out of prison. In this episode, Subtlefuge is named as the leader, not Swampslash. In 2 Part Episode: Part 2, Subtlefuge, like many other Cheat Commandos characters, speaks with an inexplicable British accent.

Their figurines are seen in 8-Bit is Enough, but there are noticeable differences between them. For example, all four have normal The Cheat colors in figurine form, but they are all different colors in the cartoon. Additionally, Fudgeclank looks far more colorful and clown-like in the cartoon than the figurine.
