Lars Rodriguez is Twister's older brother, Clio and Scotty’s older cousin and the main villain of Rocket Power.

Background

Lars is a teenage delinquent who harasses the gang from time to time, bullies Twister on a regular basis, and generally spends his free time getting in trouble. He is also a fiercely competitive athlete and is Otto's biggest competitive and social rival.

The given name Lars is a Nordic variant of "Lawrence", which comes from Latin meaning "from Laurentum" (a town southwest of Rome). When Otto, Reggie, and Twister were competing in the NHL Breakout tournament against a team from Ocean Bluffs, they asked Lars to fill in for Sam because they thought he wasn't good enough to stand up against the Ocean Bluffs team. In another episode, Reggie, Twister, and Sam asked Lars to fill in for Otto after he gets injured snowboarding.

Even though he constantly makes Twister's life miserable, Lars has shown that he really does care about him deep down and would never want anything truly bad to happen to him. Lars is jealous of Twister. He's often accompanied by his three teenage henchmen: Pi Piston, Sputz Ringley and on occasion, Animal.

Lars seems to be respectful of adults; this could be because he's either afraid of getting in trouble or it's because he genuinely respects them.

Personality

One of the few times where we see that Lars has a "soft side" is in the episode "Escape from Lars Mountain".

Lars is a bully of Twister Rodriguez as are his friends. Lars and his friends are contributing to Twister's low self esteem. They are often in the way of the four's efforts. However, all they really do is tease them and mock them and then they laugh and run away before they can say or do any thing. After this happens, the four, usually Twister & Otto, are plotting some kind of revenge. The revenge is generally harmless fun between the two teams such as misleading Lars & Friends to a secret shore line. Lars seems to have the advantage when wrestling Twister. Also, his rivalry with Twister is exacerbated by the fact he does not do nearly as many chores as Twister, such as watching Scotty.
