Characters: American Dragon Jake Long
    open/close all folders 

    Heroes / Team Dragon 

Jake Long
Voiced by: Dante Basco

At thirteen-fourteen years old, Jake appears to be just your average skateboarding, comic book-loving teen. Unbeknownst to many, though, Jake is actually a fire-breathing dragon whose job is to protect a secret world consisting of leprechauns, mermaids, unicorns and other magical creatures.
Tropes Associated With Jake:
Lao-Shi (Grandpa)
Voiced by: Keone Young

Tropes Associated With Lao-Shi:
Fu Dog
Voiced by: John Dimaggio

A 600 year old talking Shar-Pei, Lao-Shi's only companion and Jake's Animal Guardian. In the 1970s, Fu was a womanizer and a petty thief, but after meeting Lao-Shi, he turned his life around. He's messy and loud and he gambles and harasses women. However, deep down, he has a good heart and is a good, trustworthy friend to Jake.
Tropes Associated With Fu Dog:
Arthur P. "Spud" Spudinski
Voiced by: Charlie Finn

One of Jake's two best friends. Despite being a bit of a ditz, he's quite reliable. Season 2 shows off he is actually very intelligent, but because of how he was raised, he doesn't like to show it.
Tropes Associated With Spud:
Trixie Carter
Voiced by: Miss Kittie

One of Jake's best friends. She sometimes acts as the voice of reason. Shows signs of becoming a doctor.
Tropes Associated With Trixie:
Rose/Huntsgirl
Voiced by: Mae Whitman

A hot, popular girl at school, Rose catches the attention of Jake immediately. However, there is more to this girl than meets the eye. She is actually a highly skilled hunter, trained by the Huntsclan to fight and slay dragons. Jake's girlfriend.
Tropes Associated With Rose:
Haley Long
Voiced by: Amy Bruckner

Jake's eight year old younger sister who is a perfectionist and never gets in trouble. She has just mastered her dragon form and has just started her training.
Tropes Associated With Haley:
Jonathan Long
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

Jake's goofy, but loving father who has no idea that he has married into a magical family. As well as being goofy and embarrassing, he is also strict, however, he only is that way because he wants his children to remain safe. For if you hurt his children, beware.
Tropes Associated With Jonathan Long:
Susan Long
Voiced by: Lauren Tom

Jake's mother. She has no magical powers, for they skipped her generation. She is reluctant to reveal her family's heritage to her husband (apparently out of the fear that he will abandon her), and to this end, lies to her husband about Jake's business, sometimes letting Jake take the fall.
Tropes Associated With Susan Long:


Sun Park
Voiced by: Sandra Oh

The Korean Dragon, Haley's dragon master and Jake's Home Economics teacher.
Tropes Associated With Sun:
  • First Name Basis: "Please, call me Sun. Miss Park is so formal."
  • Hippie Teacher: She doesn't like being called "Ms. Park", says words like "groovy" and believes that violence is for the weak and cowardly.
  • Mysterious Watcher: She seems to come off as this towards Jake in her first appearance, before she turns out to be Haley's mentor.
  • Sensei-chan
  • Technical Pacifist: This exchange during one of her fights:
    Chang: Sun Park, I thought you were all about peace and love.
    Sun: And what I really love is to give you a piece of this!
  • What Could Have Been: In the original plan for "Homecoming", she got Killed Off for Real. The Disney Execs didn't dig it.
  • The Worf Effect: Appears to be a victim of this. She is easily defeated by Chang (twice), is blasted out of the air by The Dark Dragon in the series finale and even gets attacked by humans with soda cans in "Haley Gone Wild".
    • There's a Worf Had The Flu in the third. I mean, a pacifist dragon against humans? That's no sell for her. Also justified with the Dark Dragon and Chang (YMMV on the latter): Chang is quite more experienced and violent than her, and the Dark Dragon in the Grand Finale is so powerful that when he blasted her he was also taking on and winning against dozens of dragons at once, including the only two who had actually managed to defeat him in the past.

    Villains 
The Huntsman (Huntsmaster)
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

The leader of the Huntsclan and the #4 threat to the Magical World, The Huntsman is a hateful man whose only desire is to kill every magical creature on the face of the Earth.
Tropes Associated With The Huntsman:
The Dark Dragon
Voiced by: Clancy Brown

The #1 threat to the Magical World and apparently the only dragon to ever go bad, The Dark Dragon hates all humans and wishes to overthrow the human race, not to mention to convert all of the world's dragons to his side.
Tropes Associated With The Dark Dragon:
Councilor Chang
Voiced by: Lauren Tom

A member of the Dragon Council; a dragon from Asia. Chang is harsh and cold when it comes to Jake. Unsurprisingly, she turns out to be a mole for The Dark Dragon, secretly aiding him in his plot to recruit Jake and overthrow the human race.
Tropes Associated With Councilor Chang:
  • Art Shift: Got hit with this the most in season 2. She was originally a Miniature Senior Citizens about Jake's grandfather's height in her human form in the first season. The re-design suddenly cranked her to human height out of the blue.
  • Breath Weapon
  • Cardboard Prison: She was sent to one after she was exposed as The Mole.
  • The Dragon: To The Dark Dragon.
  • Large Ham: "TISK, TISK Mister Long."
  • Misanthrope Supreme
  • The Mole
  • Obviously Evil: Pretty much, the fact that in her first appearance, she's bias against Jake during the Dragon Competition is a given clue.
  • Psycho Ex-Girlfriend
  • Puny Humans: Her opinion on humans. Ironically in both season finale final battles it was a combination of humans and mystical creatures working together that beat both her and the Dark Dragon.
  • Villain Exit Stage Left: Well, more like fall offstage, but it's obvious that her exit in "Hong Kong Longs" was meant to serve as both a defeat and to keep her for a third season (which never happened) where she possibly could have been the Big Bad.
  • What Could Have Been: She was originally meant to be Jake's Evil Grandmother, but Disney Execs didn't like this, partially because it would mean Jake's mother was born out of wedlock. It is still subtly implied though.

Bananas B
Voiced by: Adam Wylie

The first ever "Hip Hop Helper Monkey", Bananas B takes over as Jake's Animal Guardian after Fu's license expires.
Tropes Associated With Bananas B:
Professor Hans Rotwood
Voiced by: Paul Rugg

A teacher at Jake's school, Rotwood believes in the Magical World (although his facts about magical creatures are inaccurate). His beliefs got him discredited as a scientist, and he now works as the principal of Jake's school. He has a strong dislike of Jake, namely for Jake's bad attitude.
Tropes Associated With Rotwood:
  • Butt Monkey: In "Ski Trip".
  • Enemy Mine: He and Jake make an alliance in "The Rotwood Files" to get Sigmund Brock fired. Later, they're forced to work together in "Magic Enemy #1".
  • Evil Teacher: Played straight and subverted. In many episodes, it seems that his only purpose is to make Jake miserable and he wants to expose the Magical World to humans, but it is shown that he is not a true threat and even has a true respect for the Magical World.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Sometimes, especially at the end of "The Rotwood Files".
  • Secret Chaser
  • They Call Me Mister Tibbs: He prefers to be called "Professor".

Huntsboys #88 and #89
Voiced by: Kyle Massey and Nicholas Brendon

Two young Huntsclan students who are able to lie themselves up to apprentice level in the Huntsclan.
Tropes Associated With #88 and #89:
Eli Pandarus
Voiced by: Jonathan Freeman

The Wizard of Wall Street, Pandarus desires to become the most powerful wizard in the Magical World.
Tropes Associated With Eli Pandarus:
Fury, Euryale and Medusa (The Gorgon Sisters)
Voiced by: Hynden Walch

Three ancient sisters who, when together, can combine their powers to turn their enemies to stone. When separated, they can only hypnotize their enemies.
Tropes Associated With The Gorgon Sisters:
  • Gorgeous Gorgon
  • Sadly Mythtaken: Their backstory notwithstanding, Fury was known as "Stheno" in the original myths (but then again, how many people can pronounce that?). Additionally, reflective surfaces could not deflect the Gorgons' Brown Note.
  • Smug Snakes: Figuratively and literally!
  • Taken for Granite
  • Villain Exit Stage Left: Fury at the end of "Furious Jealousy". It really seems like the writers were trying to keep as many options open as possible when it came to villains in the third season (which never happened).
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Fury gets this reaction from Jake when her hair attacks him.
  • Wolverine Publicity: Lampshaded by Trixie when she pulls a Batman Gambit on the three of them to try and get them to turn each other to stone. She claims that Medusa should be leader because everyone knows who she is, while it's unlikely that anyone has ever heard of Fury or Euryale.

Sigmund Brock
Voiced by: Corey Burton

Rotwood's old professor who takes his job as principal of Jake's school after Rotwood gets fired. Needless to say, he's more of a threat than Rotwood.
Tropes Associated With Sigmund Brock:
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: "Hola students! My name is Sigmund Brock and this school year is going to ROCK!" It all goes downhill from there for Jake.
  • Sadist Teacher: After Jake tries to get him fired, Brock takes revenge by going over the intercom and tells the entire school that "Jake Long in Homeroom 217, Locker 8331" was behind it, effectively leaving Jake at the mercy of a very angry student body.

Yang (Evil) Jake
Voiced by: Dante Basco

An evil doppelganger that Jake accidentally makes of himself with a negative dragon chi amplifier. Yang Jake's goal is to absorb all of Jake's other doppelgangers so he can overpower and absorb Jake, becoming Jake Long himself.

Tropes Associated With Yang Jake:
Dr. Diente
Voiced by: John C. Mc Ginley

A dentist working for the Tooth Fairy that betrays her and steals her wand, planning on stealing Haley's loose dragon tooth so he can claim its power.
Tropes Associated With Dr. Diente:

Tropes Associated With Kulde:
Sara and Kara (The Oracle Twins)
Voiced by: Tara Strong

Twin sisters who are descendants of the Oracle of Delphi. Sara sees only bad visions, but is always cheery because, when all she sees is bad, just the slightest good thing can make her happy. Kara sees only good things, but is always depressed because all of the pleasant surprises are taken away.
Tropes Associated With The Oracle Twins:
Nigel Thrall
Voiced by: Adam Wylie

A young wizard hailing from the United Kingdom who is the newest transfer student to Jake's school; Nigel has come to New York to complete his training, taking advantage of the magical background of the city.
Tropes Associated With Nigel:
Fred Nerk
Voiced by: Adam Wylie

The Australian Dragon. According to Fu Dog, he was the "new kid" until Jake came along. He and Jake engage in a battle of pranks with one another in the episode "Dragon Summit".
Tropes Associated With Fred Nerk:
  • Breath Weapon
  • Fake Nationality
  • James Bondage: At the end of the episode.
  • Jerk Ass: Let's see, he's the one who started everything in the episode by tripping Jake and getting him in trouble with the Dragon Council and then knocks a squirrel's nut away.

Voiced by: Kari Wahlgren

An intelligent mermaid who has a fear of water. Jake befriends her during the Grand Equinox Hunt.

A friend of Fu's who sometimes helps the Longs. She a half human spider woman.

Marty
Voiced by: Ron Masak

The current Grim Reaper and Fu Dog's old buddy. Just because he'll one day claim your soul doesn't mean he isn't a pretty cool dude.
Tropes Associated With Marty:
Brocomus

A wealthy leprechaun that owns the Pot O' Gold Import-Export. In the episode "Fool's Gold", Jake starts to work for him.
Tropes Associated With Brocomus:
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: A rather mild, non-villainous version. He makes a sale to The Huntsman, telling an angry Jake that it's "just business". Of course, then he finds out what was inside the box that he sold The Huntsman.
  • Leprechaun
  • Little Green Man
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Yes, Brocomus. Enjoy your money while The Huntsman enjoys using that Aztec Skull that you inadvertently sold him.

Tropes Associated With The Jersey Devil:

Tropes Associated With The Kelpie:
Pooka-Pooka

An evil sorcerer that is masquerading as a puppet-like star of a children's show called "Pooka-Pooka Fun Farm". All children that watch are hypnotized into becoming trouble makers. Jonathan Long knew there was something he didn't like about him.

The Krylock Demon

A magical creature that has the head of a snake and the body of a scorpion. It is very venomous, and if its venom is consumed, it will transform the eater into a Krylock Demon.
Tropes Associated With The Krylock Demon:
