Dr. Thomas James
Dr. Thomas James aka Drill Finger is a super villain on Henry Danger. He is a mad dentist who enjoys ruining people's teeth.
He is portrayed by Daniel Kaemon.
As Drill Finger, he wears a purple mask, a white short sleeved or long sleeved coat, and has curly hair; he also has a long drill in his left index finger, hence his name. He was a dentist before turning to a life of crime. It is unknown how Drill Finger lost his index finger, or why he wears a mask.
Growing up, Thomas James was not taught how to floss his teeth because his mother always had to work, and claims robbery makes him happy.
3 years ago (prior to the events of Substitute Teacher) he took all the teeth out of the mayor's mouth. He was later arrested by Captain Man; as he was taken away he vowed to "Take care of Captain Man". After 3 weeks past, he was released from jail and was in Nebraska dumping megatons of sugar into the water supply to give people cavities; meanwhile Captain Man, Kid Danger and Charlotte Page were dealing with mistaking the new student Ortho and his father as the supposed son of Drill Finger and the villain himself.
In Danger & Thunder, he was one of the villains present in the meeting the Toddler had made about destroying Captain Man, and his sidekick Kid Danger. When trying to figure out who called the meeting, Drill Finger guessed the The Three Muchachos. He disappeared when Captain Man had broken the lights of the lair.
Avoiding capture, Drill Finger returns in Double Date Danger to help Noelle pull out Jasper Dunlop, Piper Hart and Kale's teeth. He was defeated by Captain Man and Kid Danger when Captain Man broke his "drill finger" and started calling him "Finger", which he complains isn't as good a name. He was then taken to jail, presumably for good.
In the motion comic, Drillfinger Attacks!, Drill Finger was about to take out a lady's pair of teeth when she called for help, alerting Ray and Henry to the room. Drill Finger, posing as "Doctor Plesofsky, DDS", says he was. Still feeling unsure about the exchange, Ray and Henry open a closet door and find the real Dr. Plesofsky tied up inside, which prompts Drill Finger to shove them inside and trap them.
As he was about to continue his operation, Drill Finger was interrupted yet again by the heroes Captain Man (Ray) and Kid Danger (Henry) who broke out of the closet. Captain Man battles Drill Finger while the dentist himself throws a large toothbrush at Kid Danger's mouth.
During a struggle, Drill Finger teases Captain Man and tells him he will fill the cavity in his eyeball. But Captain Man unplugs the plug from the wall, shutting off Drill Finger's drill. Drill Finger makes his escape in a flying tooth-shaped car while chanting "Toothaloo!" The heroes do not pursue him, instead going out for sushi.
