The Powerpuff Girls Z
Momoko Akatsutsumi/Hyper Blossom
The first member and self proclaimed leader
of the Powerpuff Girls Z squad. She is very familiar with the mahou shojo genre, along with some typical anime/Super Sentai
concepts and is regarded as a "hero maniac" in school.
She transforms using the phrase "Hyper Blossom" and uses a yo-yo as a weapon.
- Adaptation Personality Change: Out of all members of the Powerpuff Girls Z, she's the one who least resembles her original counterpart. Her personality is retooled to be more along the lines of your archetypical magical girl. She's considerably sillier, ditzier, as a result of said ditziness has her role as the group's leader severely downplayed, and instead of being academically oriented, her plethora of knowledge instead comes from all the mahou shoujo and super sentai shows that she watches.

Miyako Goutokuji/Rolling Bubbles
The second member of the Powerpuff Girls Z team. Miyako/Bubbles is the ditziest member of the three, often appearing a bit clueless, and doesn't seem to understand her powers completely, along with a few other things. She is, however, more mature than the other girls in the team and will try to calm any situation, although she too can be angered when provoked. She is also very polite and always uses honorifics at the end of names. She is more concerned with shopping, her appearance and her outfits, and perhaps because of this, she seems to be very popular among her male classmates.
She transforms using the phrase "Rolling Bubbles" and uses a bubble wand as a weapon.

The responsible for all those affected by the Chemical Z lights, especially the Powerpuff Girls Z. Professor Utonium was originally experimenting with the substance Chemical X and strove to find a way to change its chemical properties. Professor Utonium has created several inventions throughout the series; the most important one being his Chemical Z Particle Ray, which allows him to transform those affected by the rays back to normal (although it doesn't prevent recurring transformations nor is it able to work on all black ray victims).
A young boy genius, the 8 year-old son of Professor Utonium who is somewhat responsible for turning regular girls into the Powerpuff Girls Z and numerous other characters into villains using Chemical Z. He used it to blast a glacier in order to set the weather back to normal, but the impact resulted in the explosion of several lights, which affected all those who came in contact with it.
Ken's pet robot dog. Poochi was also affected by a white Chemical Z ray, gaining the ability to talk, as well as a considerable boost in intelligence. Poochi's shout prompts the girls to transform either in person or through a long-distance communication device, although a modification to the girls' compacts allows them to transform on their own.
The mayor of New Townsville. He seems to worry quite a lot when the girls are fighting, and wishes that they could cause a little less damage.
Miss Sara Bellum
Mayor Mayer's assistant.
The girls' teacher.
The most frequently recurring villain in the series. He was an ordinary zoo monkey who was made fun of by people and decided to seek revenge on humanity after the ray from Chemical Z made him intelligent.
After the explosion of the Chemical Z ray, one of the black lights landed in the forest, creating the monster Fuzzy Lumpkins. This rendition of Fuzzy is as rude and destructive as the original, but is nice enough to help an old man or sign an autograph for a fan who likes his banjo playing, that is before going on a rampage. He has a crush on Ms. Sara Bellum.
Himeko Shirogane/Princess Morbucks
A bratty rich kid in the girls' class who is hit by the black Chemical Z rays. Her powers are used based on her wants to be recognized by people. Once she is back to normal however, she does not recall any events that occurred while she was evil.
- Adaptational Heroism: She's still definitely a spoiled brat and a jerkass just like the original Princess Morbucks, but it's toned down in comparison to the one from the original series. Her jackassery has some roots in being overshadowed by her sister all her life and not having any friends growing up, and she eventually befriends the girls. Her role as a villain is also largely due to the black Chemical Z rays; she doesn't even remember anything that happens while she's evil.
- Afro Asskicker: As Princess.
- Alpha Bitch: Miyako/Bubbles and Kaoru/Buttercup easily accept this and just ignore her, but Momoko/Blossom is constantly getting into squabbles with her due to her Alpha-Bitchiness.
- Lovable Alpha Bitch: Toward the very end of the series, where her relationship with Blossom has evolved to the point of Foe Yay (ex: episode 43.)
- Attention Whore: She feels she has to be the center of attention: she's a Morbucks!
- Big Fancy House: 'Cause her family is rich.

- Exotic Eye Designs: The family trademark are star shapes in their eyes.
- Freudian Excuse: Her parents are neglectful and set high standards for her as a Morbucks.

- Lonely Rich Kid: Aside from her sister, she never had any friends until the girls.
- Mega Twintails: As her normal self.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: Does this very often, especially when transforming into Princess.

Himeko/Princess' cat. She was hit by the black light along with her owner. Since then, Sapphire is able to activate her master's transformation by screeching whenever Princess accidentally harms Sapphire's tail (similar to Poochi's activation of the girls' transformation).
A group of amoeba brought to life by the black Chemical Z rays. Their members are Silk Hat, Poncho and Lady.
A quiet girl who runs a sweets store. She has a crush on a boy named Jason and it is her jealousy over the thought that he likes Miss Bellum what leads her to be hit by the black lights, transforming her into Sedusa whenever she puts on some lipstick.
A nasty group of trouble makers, made up of Ace, Snake, Lil Arturo, Grubber, and Big Billy.
