    Clarence Francis "Kick" Buttowski 
Voiced by: Charlie Schlatter
  • Acrofatic: He's definitely not as huge as his friend Gunther, but he is drawn pudgy. Yet, he does manage some amazing stunts and maneuvers.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Well, Awesome McCool Nickname.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Archie to Jackie's Betty and Kendall's Veronica, as well as the Betty to Kendall's Archie and Ronaldo's Veronica.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: There a few episodes that show that Kick is actually smart. In "Morning Rush", he did a months worth of homework in one night. He also has an innate grasp of the angles and forces involved in all of his stunts, even if he may not fully realize that those are actually math.
  • Butt Monkey: Becomes a regular gag in Season 2.
  • Catch Phrase:
    • "Biscuits", when things look ominous or after a mishap.
    • One point, he says "biscuits with gravy" after the last part of chain of negative revelations.
  • Cool Helmet: and we never see him without it
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Determinator: when he has in mind an objective, he'll try anything to reach it.
  • Follow in My Footsteps: Both Kick's mother and Kick's grandfather (though we're not sure if it's maternal or paternal grandfather) were both daredevils in their youth as well. And despite the parental grumping about being careful, they're both proud of Kick.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Gunther.
  • I Call It "Vera": His skateboard is named Ol' Blue, and his BMX bike, Bonecrusher. And anyone who lives in Mellowbrook would probably attest that although these are sports equipment, they are weaponized when Kick uses them.
  • Identical Grandson: Kick looks exactly like his grandpa did when he was younger. Right down to not having a nose.
  • The Leader
  • Made of Iron: No matter the bone-shattering flubs from his stunts, he's always up in a short time.
  • Manly Tears / Not So Stoic: As an occasional response to positive emotions.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: he turns EVERYTHING into a stunt show.
  • The Napoleon: especially, he's embarassed to be seen buying clothes in a kids' store with his mother.
  • The Noseless: Lampshaded in "Wade Against the Machine" and "Garage Banned".
  • Only Known by Their Nickname
  • The Quiet One: He's not very quiet as anyone thinks, but his voice does sound quiet.
  • The Stoic: usually he gives a snarky comment at best.

    Kendall Perkins 
Voiced by: Emily Osment

Voiced by: Eric Christian Olsen
  • Basement-Dweller: Until "Live-in-Wade", he lived in his stepmother's basement. Of course, she lived in a trailer, so her "basement" was just a ditch she parked over. Wade didn't seem to mind.
  • Blinding Bangs: When not wearing a hat.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: "Wade Against The Machine" shows he wouldn't have any trouble advancing up the corporate ladder (precisely because he's so fun-loving), but he has much more fun at his regular job than in an office.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: He has a knit cap that covers up his eyes.
  • Fun Personified: Kick and Gunther think of him as this.
  • Hidden Eyes
  • Nice Guy
  • The Slacker
  • The Stoner
  • The Thing That Would Not Leave: Turns out he's not so much fun to have as a house guest as shown in "Live-In Wade". Not for Kick, anyway. Ironically, having him as a house guest made the rest of the Buttowski family think of him as Fun Personified.

    Magnus and Helga 
Voiced by: Clancy Brown (Magnus); April Winchell (Helga)

Gunther’s parents
  • Badass Beard: Magnus sports one.
  • Compressed Hair: Exaggerated in "Sleepover" when one of Gunther's mom's pigtails is undone and it fills the entire house.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Magnus keeps oars in his car in case of traffic jams. Which isn't half as crazy as the fact that it actually works.
  • Flower in Her Hair: Helga.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Helga.
  • Large Ham: they're vikings after all.
  • No Indoor Voice: Magnus.
  • Norse by Norsewest: Their country of origin.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Magnus wears warrior kilts. And fish diapers, apparently. Don’t ask.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Magnus. After what he put his son through in "Free Gunther", it's hard to like him at all.
    • Helga as well. Their relationship is probably on the verge of collapsing after how she yelled at Magnus at the end of "Free Gunther" about how she doesn't have enough attention paid to her by her husband.
      • Brad's Room is proof of how Magnus and Harold aren't really close friends, if at all.

    Scarlet Rosetti

    Cousin Kyle 

    Harold and Honey Buttowski 
Voiced by: Brian Stepanek (Harold); Kari Wahlgren (Honey)
  • Action Mom: Honey used to be quite the daredevil herself and she's still got it as shown in "Kickin' Genes".
  • The Big Guy / Bumbling Dad: Harold.
  • Career-Ending Injury: Honey ended her career as a speedboat stunt-woman because she tore her tendanacious ligamental flexor. Kick encourages her to try again years later, but the injury flares up at a plot appropriate moment.
  • Hartman Hips: Honey.
  • I Call It "Vera": They named their cars Monique and Antonio respectively.
  • Parents as People: Sometimes Doting Parent, sometimes Parental Neglect.
  • The Smart Girl: Honey again.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Honey again. Her marriage with Harold is on the verge of collapsing as well, after seeing some scenes of her talking down to Harold, especially in "Brad's Room". And that's not the only time...
    • Harold's not off the hook either after refusing to help rebuild his son's room in "Brad's Room".
