Spindly Tam Kanushu is Betty's martial arts trainer and sensei. His first appearance was in the episode "Spindly Tam Kanushu", in which Maximus kidnapped him in order to teach his Morbidian Blood Monks his Martial Arts knowledge, but instead, he secretly taught them to be dancers. He then made small guest appearances in the episodes "Best (Mis) Laid Plans" and "The Revenge of Masticula". In "Case of the Missing Kanushu", he is kidnapped by his evil student named Koreena, and also appeared in the 2nd season finale "Takes One to Know One", showing that he was part of Beatrixo's old team.
In Mission: Earth, he has both been seen in his place in space (where various powerful artifacts continue to be kept), as well as a smaller place on Earth, where, in addition to training new Galactic Guardians, he works part-time at a local hot-dog stand.
