Splatter (voiced by Neil Crone) and Dodge (voiced by Kevin Frank) were Diesel 10's bumbling sidekicks. They were collectively called "Splodge" by Diesel 10. Although the other engines feared them, Splatter and Dodge did not have the bravery, intelligence, or villainy to match with Diesel 10. Their names refer to how their paint coats are heavily weathered. Splatter was colored purple and grey and more talkative than Dodge. Dodge was olive and grey and more intelligent than Splatter. When they were hired by Diesel 10 to help him in his scheme to rule Sodor by destroying the Steam Engines, they did not take a liking to their boss when he collectively refers to them as "Splodge" and grew impatient with them when they asked him about his scheme. As time goes on Splatter and Dodge spent their time mocking their boss and pointing out the flaws in Diesel 10's scheme causing Diesel 10 to lose his temper and cause trouble during his temper problems (Their housing collapses over them when Diesel 10 loses his temper, and Diesel 10 empties a coal barrel all over him when he tries to punish Splatter and Dodge during another temper tantrum).
