Overview

Travelling showmen hailing from the mysterious land of Réndøosîa (a fictional eastern European country that experiences an unusually high rate of natural disasters), the three Adrenalini brothers (Xan, Adi and Enk) eat, sleep and breathe danger. They tour around the world staging ridiculously hazardous stunts, not so much to make a living so much as because they enjoy the adrenaline rush - hence their surname. In their travels, the Adrenalinis have visited many countries in the world, and even many periods in history(and, in some cases, fiction). Eastern Europe is, by convention, a region defined geographically as that part of Europe covering the eastern part of the continent. ... For other uses, see Country (disambiguation). ...


A typical Adrenalini adventure involves the brothers coming across some sort of trouble in their latest location, usually involving an antagonist bullying the locals. The brothers invariably get involved in the trouble, and best the antagonist using their daredevil stunts (usually more out of luck than skill), bickering and causing havoc all the while. No matter what happens, the Brothers always come out on top in the end, and regroup in time to chime in with their catchphrase: "Yahzaa Adrenalini!"


The brothers, interestingly, do not speak a word of English. Instead, they speak a made-up gibberish-laden "foreign" tongue, although it contains many standard reused words and phrases and is constructed so the audience usually can tell more or less what they are saying (also, their written language can be translated to English via a simple substitution cypher). The brothers do not understand English, but since the English words spoken to them often have obvious emotional overtones ("Get out of my bonsai garden" or "Eek! You're not bears! Get out, Get out! Get out!") there is usually no need for translation. In the episode "Guitars of Destiny!", Enk sees a flyer advertising a heavy metal band, and reads it aloud saying "Rock Hammer". Later in the episode, Xan tries to say "Rock music!", but it comes out, "Rok moozik!" In the episode "City of Heroes!" Enk is captivated by the superhero "Hero Man" and says his name admiringly, while Xan says it contemptuously later in the episode.


The Brothers

Xan


The showman of the brothers, Xan is the oldest and acts as their leader, constantly trying (and often failing) to keep the other two out of mischief. He has a large ego and is constantly dreaming up new stunts to further his fame. Xan also has an eye for the ladies, and has made several unsuccessful attempts to woo the many females he has encountered in his travels. Although not all attempts are unsuccessful, all of them end with either Xan or the lady being rejected for some odd reason(usually Xan finds that the female is either ugly or a man). As a stunt man, Xan's contribution to the team seems to be as an escape artist, an ability that has served him well when he's accidentally ended up on the wrong side of the law. In fact, he has effortlessly evaded or escaped police on several occasions. Xan can always be seen wearing his trademark sunglasses and while he prefers to wear them to look cool, they also happen to be prescription lenses. Without them, Xan can barely see anything.


Enk


The youngest (and tiniest) of the brothers, Enk is a small, sausage-shaped fellow with long whiskers and tiny limbs. His role in the stunts is generally that of being tossed into the air. This treatment has made Enk a rather panicky little fellow - his trademark is a high-pitched "Eeeeeeee!" whenever things go wrong. His small size also makes him more perceptive to the dangers around him, which tends to make him the voice of reason on the team (particularly whenever Xan's ego and/or ambition runs away with him). Despite this, Enk is no coward. He has a strong sense of justice, and is usually the first to take on the villains, even if he is initially alone. He also has a rather notable temper and can become quite vengeful if provoked. He has a weakness however, in fact, more than one weakness; one of them being that he likes anything shiny, but this often leads him into "borrowing" shiny things which don't belong to him (like trophies, for example). Another weakness of his is that he can't resist opera singing, as evidenced in "Voices of Madness".


Adi


The largest and strongest of the brothers, Adi is more or less an overgrown child, and has a very mischievous streak to him. He is usually called upon for those stunts which require his great strength, although he has also performed extreme acrobatic feats, showing that he is far more agile than a man his size has any right to be. He is easily amused and often laughs merrily at his brother's misfortunes, much to their annoyance. Totally devoted to his brothers, Adi will merrily go along with any idea Xan comes up with, until something trivial inevitably distracts him. With the ability to uproot trees and even lift elephants, one would think that Adi would be quite fearless. But in truth, he doesn't have a lot of confidence in his own abilities without at least one of his brothers present to show support. In fact, when he is alone, he often becomes quite nervous and timid. He is most notably recognized by his enormous bushy moustache, which can actually grow back within minutes if he ever loses it (apparently, Xan has shown that he can grow his moustache back almost as quickly).

Réndøosîan

As stated earlier, Réndøosîa is a fictional country and Réndøosîan is therefore, a fictional language. But it can make the Adrenalini Brothers a little difficult to understand, seeing as how it is all they speak. Knowing something about their language may help to keep up with them better. So here are just a few of the more common words and phrases. Image File history File links Broom_icon. ...
