Introduced in season 2 as the first gay student known at Degrassi. In his time at Degrassi, he came to terms with his sexuality, told his parents (his mom was accepting, his father not so much at first), and even got a boyfriend, Paige's brother Dylan. After he graduated and Dylan left the country, he went through the motions of dealing with a long distance relationship (and later breakup) and dealing with being alone. Marco can be very neurotic and clingy, but he is still a dependable and caring friend and a leader. As of season nine, he is training to be a teacher and even started out his training at Degrassi.

Jimmy was one of Degrassi's most popular students and he was a great basketball player and had a bright future as a pro, until he was shot in a school shooting and was paralyzed from the waist down. He spent much of the time afterward re-adjusting to his new life as a disabled person, whilst lamenting over the loss of his athletic dreams and never walking again. He is best friends with Spinner, and even forgave him for essentially putting him in the chair, though it did take a while for Jimmy to stop being resentful. Jimmy is a very nice guy, but as Sean and Spinner can attest to, he has a mean streak a mile wide. He meets and falls in love with a disabled girl named Trina and he proposes to her in season eight.

* BrokenBird: After she was raped at age 14. And then when Dean was acquitted of raping her, she really fell into this trope. She gets better, but this has darkened her character a bit.

Spinner was one of Degrassi's most popular stutdents, along with his best friend Jimmy Brooks. He was also the school bully but as the years went by, his bully reputation went away and he became a lot sweeter, if not more intelligent. In season four, he, along with Jay bullied Rick Murray to extremes. Rick then brought a gun to school and shot Jimmy, under a pretense fueled by Spinner that it was ''Jimmy'' who was behind an embarrassing prank. When the truth came out, Spinner was immediately outcast and was held back a year after being expelled for his role in the bullying. Jimmy disowned him as a friend and during season five, it took a long time for Spinner to find his way back in his former friend's good graces. Spinner is also a testicular cancer survivor and after he graduated (and rejection from police college), he stayed around in the Degrassi neighborhood helping the new class of Degrassi students and worked at [[LocalHangout The Dot.]] In season nine, he marries Emma Nelson after a drunk accidental marriage. No, really.
