Chancellor Richelieu

Chancellor Richelieu was a main antagonist in the Renaissance Paris Arc of Mesozoic Meltdown (episodes 71-74). He is based on his real-world counterpart, Cardinal Richelieu, who also features fictitiously in The Three Musketeers, which inspired the arc. He is voiced by David Zen Mansley in the English dub.


Richelieu serves under the Royal Mother. He presents to her a source describing the location of the Blue Eye of Gaia in The French Conniption, which leads to her forming an alliance with the Spectral Space Pirates (Shear had been listening in) to find it.

Richelieu is sent alongside each of the Space Pirates in turn to each subsequent suspected location for the Blue Eye of Gaia: an old orphanage in The French Conniption, the Chateau du Duke Dumas in The Wee Musketeers, both of which were dead ends, and finally Vasasi Castle in All for One and The Haunted Hunt. During this, he makes enemies of the Teen Musketeers, whose orphanage he destroyed, and they pester him in his search, leading to conflicts with Princess Anne, who tries unsuccessfully to overrule the Royal Mother's orders.

He eventually corners the D-Team and reaches to grab the Blue Eye of Gaia, before the young King Louis arrives and orders him off, giving the Cosmos Stone to the D-Team.


He is shown to be very ruthless when seeking his goals, using his unassailable royal orders as an excuse for his methods, such as imprisoning Princess Anne without concern and fighting D'Artagnan one-on-one with a metal sword against a wooden stick, even resorting to pulling out a pistol when he became outnumbered and outmatched after the other Teen Musketeers joined the fight. However, he shows complete, if reluctant, loyalty to his rightful authority, immediately stopping when King Louis, though a child, began directly giving him orders contrary to the Royal Mother's previous instructions.
