  • Cool Big Sis
  • Catch Phrase: "Definitely."
  • Dragon Rider
  • Magic Skirt: Averted. One episode that calls for Emmy to do cartwheels has her wearing overalls.
  • Not So Above It All: Since Emmy is usually portrayed as the responsible sibling who, in Max's words, can "do anything", it's intentionally portrayed as rather jarring during the rare occasions when Emmy acts irresponsibly (such as the time she broke Wheezie's trumpet and then lied about it) or demonstrates weakness (when jerks tease Emmy's team during a basketball game, Emmy's the one who takes it the hardest and thus, she's the one who learns the episode's aesop about not letting teasing bother you).
  • Pride: Emmy's biggest flaw, but given the non-hostile nature of this show, it really only comes up a few times, such as Emmy being unable to cope with losing a game, or wanting Max to do things her way which summons a literal "Copy Cat".
  • Spirited Competitor: In "Tails, You Lose," she didn't want to play if she couldn't win. At least at first.

  • Dragon Rider: He gets Zak & Wheezie, much to their delight, because as a general rule they usually had nobody to ride them before, unless either Max & Emmy were feuding with Ord or Cassie respectively.
  • Sixth Ranger: This brings the kids to a Power Trio.
  • Gratuitous Spanish:

Zak and Wheezie


Voiced by: Jason Michas
  • Afraid of the Doctor: In one episode, which becomes a problem when he needs a doctor to remove a rather large thorn from his foot. Apparently he fears the doctor because he thinks it'll hurt; he even pre-emptively reacts before the doctor even touches the thorn. So the doctor makes him grab his sister's hand and squeeze, so he doesn't even notice the thorn being removed until after it's out.
  • Butt Monkey
  • Grumpy Bear
  • Neat Freak: To his credit, though, this is usually played as a virtue instead of a vice, except in one episode where the color in Dragonland disappears, and he approves of the change since it makes everything so neat and clean.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Zak would be the "savvy guy" of the duo.

  • Cool Old Guy
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Oddly enough, in the Mexican Spanish dub he speaks more like a typical Mexican old man, rather than trying to adapt this by using another language.
  • Mentors
  • Stealth Mentor: Quetzal is easily capable of solving many of the problems that come up in the episodes, but instead he uses those problems as a way to guide the young ones into learning lessons on their own.
