The titular protagonist; Kim Possible is just your average, everyday girl who happens to save the world on a daily basis. With a grab-bag of gadgets, and her cheerleader training, she'll thwart any villain's maniacal plot, at any time, and any place. However, no doomsday machine, or baddie can compare to her biggest, and most important struggle; surviving high school.
The Ace: The head cheerleader, straight A student, involved in every extracurricular activity you can think of and the ultimate heroic Action Girl. This all provides much contrast with Ron. The series isn't shy about showing what this sort of person would be like in real life: extremely stubborn and a perfectionist.
Amnesiac Lover: In "Clean Slate". She soon remembers that Ron is her best friend, but finds it laughably unlikely that they were dating.
Badass: She is in no more danger saving the world than another teen would be skateboarding.
Badass Normal: During So The Drama and any time she fights someone with superpowers, such as her frequent battles with Shego, her generally mopping the floor with Team Go in Stop Team Go, and even going toe to toe with a ancient monster for a few seconds before he kicked his magic in on her.
Bare Your Midriff: Did this with every outfit she had at the start of the series (all 2 of them!), but gradually started doing it less and less until by the end of the series she had stopped completely.
Buffy Speak: All the time; see catch phrase. Especially so when talking with any of the several super geniuses she knows.
Bully Hunter: Aside from supervillain bullies she has stepped up on occasion, teaching sensitivity training (re: an ass kicking) to Ron's tormentors, beating down Drakken, Killigan and Fist when they were children and tormenting Ron, and despite turning down the idea to do the same to Bonnie one time she's pushed too far and is about to do it, then Bonnie breaks down in tears.
Extracurricular Enthusiast: As part of her incredible-overachiever character design, Kim Possible is involved with or in charge of just about everything in Middleton High short of being a supply teacher, though most of these are merely referred to unless they're significant to the episode.
Fiery Redhead: She has incredible drive and passion. Ironically, Animology calls these traits blue fox.
Insufferable Genius: Tends to be boastful about her Ace qualities, but she can very well back them up. Ron occasionally pokes fun at this.
Love Revelation Epiphany: In So The Drama, Ron comforts her after Kim is left heartbroken by the revelation that Eric is a synthodrone. Kim asks if he really thinks there's a guy for her, and Ron says there might be one who's out there... or right there with her. Upon hearing these words, Kim begins to realize who the guy of her dreams really is.
Naïve Everygirl: She's at her core a parody of this type; she's insecure about boys, dating, and the social order, and has very few close friends. However, she's admired by her peers, involved in every school activity, and is an international kung-fu-fighting pro-bono Action Girl.
Noodle Incident: Many of Kim's missions begin with her thanking someone for giving a ride to the site, and being thanked in return for her help with some briefly-described crisis.
Opposites Attract: With Ron; serious overachiever and goofy underachiever. They balance each other out very well; on Kim's side, Ron calms her down and reminds that she doesn't always have to be perfect, and that sometimes relaxing and having fun is the best course of action.
Red-Headed Heroine: Red hair isn't unique but she's the only one in age group that has red hair. The only other one is her cousin that wants to be a hero like her.
Second Year Protagonist: Starts her series in her sophomore year of high school, hits senior year in season four and graduates in the Grand Finale.
Shoe Phone: Her gadgets are generally built to look like ordinary teenage-girl items, such as her hairdryer grapple gun, her lipstick laser, and her lip gloss knockout gas. It seems to be purely a style thing, as she doesn't bother to hide who she is.
10-Minute Retirement: Goes through one at the end of So The Drama after it was revealed that Eric was a synthodrone. It took Ron giving her a pep talk and confessing his love for her to get back in the fight.
Well, Excuse Me, Princess!: To Ron. Every season she eggs him on to do better. What that means can range from 'better haircut' to 'school work'. By the final season she switches to encouraging as graduation approaches.
Kim's sidekick, and best friend since kindergarten; Ron is often dismissed by his peers as a lazy, accident-prone slacker, and coward. He also has a tendency to blow things out of proportion, and has turned making a fool out of one's self into an art form. However, despite his pants-losing antics, and fear of monkeys, he will always pull through when the chips are down and there is no one Kim trusts more in a mission.
Adorkable: Kim is the only girl that he does not get flustered around.
All Guys Want Cheerleaders: Averted with Kim; cheerleading had nothing to do with it. Inverted as Tara (a cheerleader) has a crush on him and he didn't realize it until long after she lost interest and started going out with another guy.
He's an only child for the first three seasons, but early in the fourth season, his parents adopt a baby Japanese girl named Hana. Ron at first refers to her as "the intruder," but then the "fraternal instincts kick in" and he quickly grows extremely attached to her.
"Oh No! Yono!" has Ron with a real fear that he might lose Hana due to her being unable to defend herself against Yono (as he was supposed to train her in martial arts, but he "couldn't get her to turn a page in a book" and nobody told Ron straight out he was to train her). However, with the "Flippie Dance" moves she learned, Hana gets enough agility and athletic training to not just beat Monkey Fist but evade Yono.
Big Eater: It's implied that he spends all his pocket change at Bueno Nacho. Taken to extremes during "Grande Size Me".
Book Dumb: To further contrast with Kim, he's a poor student. Played for Drama in the final season when he's afraid their grade difference will mean college separation.
Cloudcuckoolander: Ron marches to his own drummer and generally does some very odd things. He also has exhibited several instances of The Cuckoolander Was Right where he will come up with some off-the-wall supposition about what is actually happening, which other characters will scoff at.
Cool Loser: He's not stupid, he's not a klutz, and he doesn't lack in social skills. He's often confident and he knows how to pick up the ladies. (They just reject him anyway). In addition, he's just as much a hero as Kim. The problem is possibly that he's a rather lanky, which makes him look younger than he is (until he gets his great new hairstyle) and extremely dorky. In season 4 this is inverted as he's slides closer to Big Man on Campus.
Cowardly Sidekick: Most of his action is running away and screaming. He has a panic room.
Hollywood Dateless: He's overly concerned with social rankings and considered a loser by his school peers. Yet he seems popular among girls—notably Yori and Kim (the latter of whom he later does date), along with Zita, and a crush by another cheerleader.
I Just Want to Be Special: Oddly enough he combines with Brilliant, but Lazy. He has the potential to be something special but doesn't work nearly as hard at it as Kim. Depending on the episode one will be more prominent than the other.
Informed Judaism: Mentioned in show a few times, most notably in "Ron the Man" (where he talks about reading from the Torah) but the bit about not mixing meat and dairy obviously didn't take. He's probably not that serious about his religion because he's not that serious about anything.
Mighty Whitey: He's the Mystical Monkey Master, an evidently Eastern style of kung fu/magic. He's a white American. Also parodied as the other ninjas are more skilled than him in the normal style while he always losses his pants.
Nice Guy: He's friendly and doesn't hold a grudge. He's more upset that Drakken can't get his name right than all the evil plans he hatches.
Non-Action Guy: He's the distraction. He runs away while Kim does the fighting. Inverted at the end of the Grand Finale. Weirdly, whenever he turns evil, he can suddenly fight on par with almost anyone.
Sidekick Graduations Stick: It's pretty obvious that after his incredible heroics in the Grand Finale that he becomes a full-fledged partner to Kim. What makes it really amusing is that the episode in question was known as "Graduation".
Spanner in the Works: If there's a plan, expect Ron Stoppable to ruin it and especially if you're a bad guy. This trope is lampshaded in an episode by calling it "The Ron Factor." The real cause is identified as "The Rufus Factor."
Spotlight-Stealing Squad: The fourth season was greenlighted by Ron's fanbase so he has a lot more screentime in that season.
Rufus is Ron's beloved pet. Ron could only have a hairless pet on account of his father's allergies, so he purchased Rufus, a naked mole rat. He lives most of the time in either Ron's pocket or his locker at school, and was first introduced to Kim on their first major mission, where she pronounced him "gross but useful."
Hypercompetent Sidekick: Rufus constantly alters machinery, breaks the duo out of sticky situations, and is oftentimes more composed and reasonable than his owner, which…Says a lot about both Rufus and Ron.
Meaningful Name: A Sitch in Time shows the audience that Rufus was named after Ron's imaginary friend from early childhood.
Out-of-universe, his name was inspired by the Rufous-beaked snake, a natural predator of the naked mole rat.
Shipper on Deck: When Ron shows interest in any girl other than Kim, Rufus makes a noise of disgust. Any scenes with Ron and Kim together get the animal to make an "aww" sound. He even helped them get over their nervousness of their first date by pushing them towards each other so they could dance.
A 10-year old genius who provides Kim with all of her information, missions and gadgets. Rarely ever seen away from his computer or out of his room. He does Take a Level in Badass in A Sitch In Time as an adult.
When Aviarius captures Kim, Shego and the rest of Team Go, Wade calls Dr. Drakken for help. Drakken, who's usually ineffective shows up with one very serious attack robot and says, 'I was told Shego was in trouble! WHERE IS THIS AVIARIUS?!'
Harmless Villain: Zigzagged. Sometimes he's planning to destroy the world; sometimes he's a joke. Sometimes he tries to zap Kim with a Death Ray, or drop her in lava; sometimes he doesn't even try to hurt Kim, only to keep her occupied with traps or his sidekick Shego. Really, his one major problem (aside from his ego) is that his plans tend to be ridiculously convoluted and unlikely to succeed. It's frequently shown that he would be more successful if he took a more pragmatic viewpoint in his schemes, such as in "A Sitch In Time", where Shego simply relocating the Stoppables to Norway wins out over his time-travelling attempts to "break" Kim. The one time the complicated nature of his plots works in his favor is "So The Drama", where his Evil Plan is so ludicrous that no one save Ron believes there IS one at first.
Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: The main reason he's trying to conquer the world is to prove he's a genius. No one believes it, especially not Shego. Except for his Fan, Frugal Lucre.
Kick the Dog: Stealing a wheelchair from a disabled teenager just because it has advanced technology? Seriously, Dr. D?
His moments of buffoonery and incompetence makes him a counterpart for Ron. They even share some of the same interests like Snowman Hank.
Also one to Kim as they're both very driven individuals and who's partners/sidekicks are more laidback and relaxed about it.
Personality Swap: In the episode "Bad Boy", he ends up making 'Cocomoo' and cookies for his henchmen. Meanwhile, Ron is trying to conquer the world with Shego, at which he turns out to be amazingly effective.
Scooby-Doo Hoax: His main island lair has "KEEP OUT - HAUNTED" signs posted, though he doesn't bother with any actual fake ghosts.
Shirtless Scene: In the movie A Sitch In Time, Drakken (who has transformed into a hulking brute) rips his shirt while fighting Kim. Also, in the episode Rappin' Drakken, he walks around in only a towel and shower cap and is shirtless when lathering his hair in the commercial for his 'Lather, Rinse, and Obey' shampoo. Whether these are Fanservice or just terrifying depends on the viewer.
Smug Snake: Part of his problem is that his ego far outstrips his ability to make his overly complicated plans work.
Supervillain He has the grandoise ambitions and physical trappings and becomes superpowered in the final season.
Took a Level in Badass: On three occasions. The first was in the movie A Sitch In Time, when he goes from wimpy to bulky. The second time was in the other movie So the Drama where he proved he's a Not-So-Harmless Villain. Finally, in the Grand FinaleGraduation, Drakken develops plant powers that are so strong, they can crush advanced alien technology.
Totally Radical: Occasionally uses teen slang, for which he's mocked by Shego.
Unknown Rival: Drakken is irritated and jealous whenever he's reminded that Professor Dementor has a bigger reputation as a potential world-conquering Mad Scientist. For his part, Dementor seems to regard Drakken as a second-rate wannabe.
Villainous Friendship: With Shego. They constantly annoy each other, but their relationship is definitely more than just business. At the end of the series, they apparently become a couple.
More entries than anyone else! Her role was first expanded when the creators realised how well Drakken and Shego interacted, and as the show progressed writers often found it more interesting to put Kim and Shego on the same side instead of fighting each other.
Almighty Janitor: Tying into Brilliant, but Lazy, she spends much of the series as Drakken's sidekick yet is well respected in the villain world. She's arguably Kim's most dangerous adversary.
Arch-Enemy: As the person Kim locks fists with, she's considered by some to be her true arch enemy, which is helped by their chemistry.
Black Sheep: The one villainous member of a superhero family.
Break-Out Character/Breakout Villain: Originally just a simple sidekick, she became one of the most popular characters in the series due to being a very competent (but unambitious) villain, combined with her sarcastic attitude towards Drakken and Kim.
Brilliant, but Lazy: She has a lot more common sense and Genre Savvy than her boss, but tends to laze about reading magazines or lying on the beach when she isn't on a mission.
Ms. Fanservice: Out of all the female characters in the series, she's the one whom most often seems to be depicted in states of undress (i.e. relaxing in bathing suits in the middle of Drakken's lair or on private resorts) or seen using her sex appeal in some way (distracting Martin Smarty).
No Name Given: She is the only major villain whose real name is never revealed.
Not in My Contract: In "Kimitation Nation", she reminds Dr. Drakken that she has a NO CLONING clause in her contract.
Not So Different: Obviously to Kim. Both are powerful and clever young women who also have a taste for fashion and have a close relationship with a more bumbling male.
Also to her fellow 'sidekick' Ron. Both are more laidback and willing to just kick back and relax compared to their more driven partners.
Perpetual Frowner: Rarely happy. If you had to put up with Drakken everyday, you'd be annoyed too.
Pet the Dog: Junior. She genuinely tried to help him, she was at least less sarcastic than usual at the idea of him breaking her out of prison to help with a crime, and she even gets mopey about not doing the job together.
Prodigal Family: Has four brothers that also have powers like her, and when Shego was good they were a team called 'Team Go'.
Punch Clock Villain: She spends most of her time reading villain magazines or even lounging at spas when not assigned a task. She even has weekends and holidays off in a few episodes.
Rapunzel Hair: It goes down her back to her waist; longer than Kim's and thus highlighting her vanity.
Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: She has been known to just walk away from some of Drakken's schemes when she feels they have become too much trouble, or too stupid, for her tastes. Though as the trope directly above suggests, she for some reason always comes back.
Sickly Green Glow: Her suit is green to match her glow. This is confirmed when she temporarily stole her brothers' powers in "Go Team Go" and her suit changed color to match the power she was using at the moment.
Smug Super: She's very haughty and arrogant and snarky but it's implied she was always like that.
Side Kick: To Drakken. In A Stitch In Time this is a major plot point. Kim didn't believe she was the Supreme One because she's so used to thinking "Shego the sidekick".
The Slacker: Her life revolves around entertaining herself by sunbathing, filing her nails, mocking Drakken and occasionally spending quality time with Kim. She could be much more.
Rufus 3000: Wasn't it clear that Shego was the only one smart enough to take over the world? Joss: I mean, I know Dr. Drakken is your arch foe, but it seems to me Shego's the really dangerous one. I mean, if she put her mind to do it, she could be the toughest villain out there, don't you think?
Vague Age: Her age was never actually stated in the series, though Ron stated that she looked too old to be in high school, and considering she was able to become fully credentialed in Child Development, he may be right. Some aspects of her character (her athletic ability, her immature attitude, her occasional flirtations with beach hunks) make her seem relatively young; others (the fact that she has a degree in Child Development, the Drakken/Shego moment in the final episode) suggest an older age.
When She Smiles: She is far from unattractive, but very prone to frowning, smirking and psychotic rage. Once in a while though, when she's confused or nervous, she'll break out a sheepish, unguarded smile. The expression is utterly disarming.
Worthy Opponent: While she won't admit it out loud, she grudgingly regards Kim as this.
Ein Deutsch ''villain' who, like Dr. Drakken, iz hell-bent on taking over ze VORLD! However, hiz technology, henchmen and intelligence are generally better zan zat of Dr. Drakken. Because of zis, zey rival each other INTENSELY! Unfortunately, hiz brilliant planz are often foiled by Kim Possible (much like Dr. Drakken's) so ze audience never sees hiz TRUE POTENTIAL! In case you vere vondering, he speaks just like zis, and raises hiz voice at ze end of ze SENTENCES!
Always Someone Better: To Dr. Drakken. His henchmen are well-drilled, and he sometimes invents something that Drakken tries to steal rather than duplicating for himself.
Herr Doktor: Dutch, not German, but the effect is the same.
Informed Attribute: Before his first appearance, Dementor was repeatedly name-dropped as a more competent and dangerous mad scientist than Drakken. When he became a recurring character, he was of course always defeated; however, he did present a greater challenge when it came to trapping Kim and pulling out a backup plan when things started to go wrong.
Arch-Enemy: He's more Ron's personal enemy than Kim's, because of Ron got an infusion of the Mystical Monkey Power he'd intended to seize for himself.
Animal-Themed Superbeing: Has his hands and feet cosmetically modified to be more monkey-like and spends an inordinate amount of time on just about anything monkey-themed. The actual "super" doesn't kick in until he acquires the Mystical Monkey Power, though.
Not so Above It All: Generally, he's one of the most composed and competent villains on the show, with all of Drakken's ambition and all of Shego's fighting skills, but he's also been known to break into uncontrolled fits of gloating laughter and blow his top spectacularly, and once descended into a slap-fight with Ron over a minor slight.
Steven Ulysses Perhero: His real name is Montgomery Fiske, or Monty for short, and his villain name is an anagram of "Monty Fiske".
Taken for Granite: His final play for the Mystical Monkey Power ended up getting him turned into a statue. The very last scene of the series indicates that he didn't get better.
Villain Decay: His final (major) appearance has him reference this trope at the very beginning, as he's stewing over the fact that on his last outing, he got his ass handed to him by a baby. Incidentally, he's one of the most serious villains on the show, an air that has generally been maintained throughout four seasons.
What Happened to the Mouse?: The butler he had in his first episode never reappears, leading many to speculate what happened to him. Since he said he spent a great deal of money on his monkey modifications, it's likely that he couldn't afford one after the first episode.
Would Hurt a Child: He ordered his monkey ninjas to throw Hana into a pool of lava along with Ron and Rufus.
Señor Senior Senior
Voiced by: Ricardo Montalban/ Earl Boen
A practically infinitely wealthy older gentleman. After a friendly encounter with Kim and Ron, he decides to take up supervillainy as a hobby.
Anti-Villain: He's only a villain as a pastime to enjoy with his son and doesn't really care if the heroes win or not.
Badass Grandpa: Despite his age and the fact that he often carries a cane, it turns out in "Triple S" that he is very fit and a skilled at extreme sports.
Card-Carrying Villain: Even more so than the other villains on the show, since for him it's just a hobby and he cares more about doing it right than about actually pulling off a successful Evil Plan.
Disproportionate Retribution: A club for rich people banned him for publicly getting into fights with a teenage girl and he tried to get even by freezing the club and all its members. He even explained Junior villains are supposed to fit the trope.
Contractual Genre Blindness: He is well aware of the Evil Overlord List but thinks he has to make the mistakes in order to be a 'proper' villain. He considers it to be good form.
Evil Laugh: He even takes time to practice it with Junior.
Evil Plan: They gave the "take over the world" thing a try but are more into smaller scale plans like twearking other rich guys that offend them.
Ink-Suit Actor: Bears a distinct resemblance to Ricardo Montalban.note Montalban was the original voice actor for the character; Earl Boen provided Senior's voice when Montalban's health did not permit him to record an episode.
Xanatos Gambit: As noted above, whether or not any of his plans succeed or not is irrelevant. He's just having fun with the 'Traditional Super Villain' role. Their inevitable failure never bothers him because he can still fulfill that role.
Señor Senior Junior
Voiced by: Nestor Carbonell
Señor Senior's son and unwilling accomplice. He isn't nearly as interested in world domination as his father, but comes along anyway because he's family.
Affably Evil: Like his dad but his reason is more he's not into evil and instead into partying.
Anti-Villain: He's only evil because his Dad is and drags him into it like a mundane dad would to a fishing trip.
Stalker with a Crush: Toward Monkey Fist because of his monkey modifications. She describes him as her "newest little cuddle buddy", which suggests there may be slightly more going on there than just romantic affections.
Voiced by: Brian George
A Scottish former professional golfer banned from every golf course in the world (even minigolf!).
A Day in the Limelight: Oddly, this was also his debut: "Number One", his only solo appearance. Afterwards, he only serves as a secondary villain or accomplice.
An engineer and monster truck enthusiast. Also Drakken's cousin. Seriously.
Air Guitar: He lives on this trope. Seriously. *Cue strings and wailing*
Amazon Chaser: Ed fell in love with Shego after being zapped. Seriously.
Bunny-Ears Lawyer: A genius engineer who only cares about rock music and cruising down the highway in a "sweet ride," spending his time fashioning his mullet and playing air guitar. Seriously. Like everything it's lampshaded, seriously.
Wade: "He's not as dumb as the hairstyle would have you believe."
Casanova Wannabe: Constantly hits on Shego, and is impervious to hints (up to and including plasma blasts) that she wants nothing to do with him. Seriously.
Gadgeteer Genius: He may sound like a total goofball, but he's very competent at building things. Seriously.
Genius Ditz: Totally boneheaded rocker stereotype, yeah, but this dude is seriously the "most brilliant mechanical engineer in the country." Seriously.
Motor Ed: So, uh... do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again? Because I'll totally walk by again, if I have to. Seriously. Shego: Mhmm, mhmm. Walk and... keep walking! *cue plasma blast* Motor Ed: *after recovering from being blasted into a wall* Man, do I dig a woman who can scrap! I think I'm in loooove! *cue Air Guitar*
A low-budget supervillain-wannabe employed at Smart-Mart. Dr. Drakken's annoying Cell Block D cellmate. Often drives him nuts. Ironically, Lucre is driven nuts when Motor Ed replaces Drakken in his cell.
Ascended Extra: If it weren't for the show getting un-cancelled for a Postscript Season, Frugal would've only had one appearance in the show. After the renewal, he took on a recurring role as Drakken's jail cellmate.
Basement-Dweller: He avoids the expense of maintaining a lair by living in his mom's basement.
Do Not Adjust Your Set: His first scheme was to go on all channels and broadcast a demand that everyone send him a dollar, or else he'd destroy the internet.
Loony Fan: To Dr. Drakken. When they're stuck in prison together, he drives the bad doctor up the wall with his non-stop talking and gushing.
An heiress who's very well known around the celebrity circuit. However she's revealed to be a shape-shifter (via an experimental surgery) who steals to fund her lifestyle. She only shows up in season 4.
Voiced by:Ron Perlman (Warhok) Kristen Johnston (Warmonga)
Two Lorwardian warriors (a giant, green skinned species similar to humans) who appear to have the same goals as Dr. Drakken/Shego/Dementor, except they seem much more intent and capable of fulfilling them... and destroying Earth in the process.Both
Significant Anagram: Their race is called the Lorwardians. "Lorward" is a spoonerism of "Warlord".
Underestimating Badassery: In truth, they underestimated the entire human race, but they really underestimated Ron and what he would do if they threatened his girlfriend. Seriously, their first clue should've been when Ron sent them flying the first time. Their reaction, smirking at each other, implies "Lucky shot" and they proceed to fight him as before. Needless to say, it didn't end well for them.
A synthodrone created by Drakken during Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama, he pretends to be someone named Eric in order to keep Kim busy while Drakken completes his plan. He then lured her into a trap which revealed his true allegiance and sent Kim into a Heroic BSOD.
Evil All Along: He appears to be a civilian but he's actually a sleeper agent.
Kim's equally devoted mother, Anne, is a neurosurgeon and like her husband, is rarely seen out of her lab coat. She's a bit more understanding of her daughter's love life and can usually be found also cooking dinner.
Open-Minded Parent: Like Kim's Dad, Mrs. Dr. P doesn't bat an eye at Kim's life-threatening antics.
Shipper on Deck: The series implies that she's been fond of the idea of Kim and Ron as a couple for some time. Notably in Emotion Sickness, she is overjoyed when Ron comes to pick Kim up for their "date". Later, in So The Drama, she tries persuading Kim that going to prom with Ron wouldn't be so bad, seems to be the only one to notice his hurt feelings about Kim and Eric during dinner, and on the night of the actual prom, she looks sad when her gaze falls on a picture of a younger Kim and Ron together, whilst Kim is being taken by Eric.
Women Are Wiser: Her husband is absent minded and her sons are dangerously creative.
Jim and Tim Possible (a.k.a. the Tweebs)
Voiced by: Shaun Fleming (pre-voice break)/ Spencer Fox (post-voice break)/ Freddie Prince Jr. (Future Tweebs)
James (Jim) and Timothy (Tim) Possible, Kim's younger twin brothers, were chiefly background characters until the fourth season, when they were promoted to high school. Kim refers to them as being the natural result of a rocket scientist having children with a brain surgeon.
Annoying Younger Sibling: Times two or squared. This is why they're called "The Tweebs". They get better as they grow older.
Retired Badass: Drakken revealed that she is the first woman to complete the Navy SEALs underwater demolition course, amongst other things. Kim had no idea.
Kim's cousin via her dad's brother, Slim. Joss' only appearance was in 'Showdown at Crooked D' were it was shown that she had come down with a major case of hero worship for Kim, which ends up transplanted to Ron at the end.
Badass: Even with her klutz resulting from trying to emulate Kim, she still shows that she can kick some patooty when she wants to.
Gadgeteer Genius: That grappling hook she made was mighty impressive, as was her knowledge of her dad's equipment. Considering her family, it seems that she wants to be the Action Hero while she's more of a Science Hero.
Voiced by: Kirsten Storms/ Kelly Ripa (Future Bonnie)
Kim's rival on the cheer squad and the resident Alpha Bitch for the show, Bonnie is usually the antagonist as far as Kim's high school career goes. She eventually hooks up with Junior in Homecoming Upset.
Evil Counterpart: Not exactly evil, but bitchy. She's almost Kim's physical match, but her skills are geared more toward dancing and gymnastics rather than combat, and she has no interest in saving the world.
Jerkass: She never passes up an opportunity to be mean to Kim. she's especially mean to Ron and even after she kissed him out of jealously to Kim and her break up with Brick Flagg. She likely STILL see him as a loser despite defeating the Lorwardians in Graduation.
Laser-Guided Karma: At the end of Graduation, Barkin informs her that she has to take summer school in order to graduate from high school. Why? She blew off all her classes the last week of school, which caused her to miss an important test, thus leaving her one class credit short of graduating.
The Rival: To Kim. They compete for the spirit stick and the position of Head Cheerleader.
Once, when Kim got distracted from her duties as cheerleading captain, Bonnie used it as a ploy to replace her as captain. Surprisingly, she proved competent enough to lead the squad, and at the end, even Kim voted for Bonnie being their new captain. Bonnie was excited, but assumed she was done with the hard work. When Kim explained that it was merely just beginning, Bonnie started having obvious second thoughts about being the captain and presumably gave the position back to Kim within two weeks or so.
She's Got Legs: As she's usually in a cheerleading outfit, it becomes obvious.
Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: She's a constant recurring thorn in the "basic average girl" side of Kim's life.
Token Evil Teammate: Again, she's not evil per se, but she is still nasty compared to the other cheerleaders who are pretty nice.
Ungrateful Bastard: When the Bebes kidnapped her to make her their queen after overhearing Kim talk about her. After Kim manages to save her she scoffs a "Finally" and blames Kim for the whole mess even though it was unintentional.
Mr. and Mrs. Stoppable
Voiced by: Elliot Gould (Mr. Stoppable)/Andrea Martin (Mrs. Stoppable)
Bumbling Dad: Mr. Stoppable is like a grown-up version of his son in this regard. Defying this trope was the point of his Day In The Limelight.
Scout Out: In one episode, it's revealed that Barkin acts as a "den mother" to a Girl Scout-style scouting troop in Middleton called the Pixie Scouts, although he runs it more like a military unit (Barkin, understandably, prefers "Brigadier Pixie" over "Den Mother").
Voiced by: Raven-Symone/Vivica A. Fox (Future Monique)
Kim's best friend besides Ron, she is smart and hip and always available to provide level-headed advice for Kim. She is very fashionable and works at Club Banana. Occasionally Monique would join Kim on her missions but lacked the skill needed to be a competent sidekick.
Art Evolution: In her first few appearances her eyes were mainly just dots connect to her eyebrows. From season two onward she got full pupils which allowed for better expressions.
Headmaster of the Yamanouchi Ninja School, Sensei is introduced in Exchange, going into more detail on Ron's mystic monkey powers. He is a wise character who dispenses advise and is more than capable of holding his own.
Badass Grandpa: He only cuts loose in two of his appearances, but when he does, he takes out a huge Samurai Guerilla by effortlessly blocking the blows with his hands, and then takes it down with his sandal put the foot. He also takes on Yono with magic, but that didn't work so well...
Old Master: Principal of a ninja school and has a long white beard.
Taken for Granite: Like Kim, Sensei temporarily suffers this at the hands of Yono; but, like Kim, he gets better.
Wizard Beard: He spots a more belivable version, which only goes down to around his midsection.
Voiced by: Keiko Agena
Student at the Yamanouchi Ninja School, she is also introduced in "Exchanged". She shows attraction to Ron, inciting Kim's jealously a couple of times.
Catch Phrase: Usually to Ron. "Oh, Stoppable-san, you and your American-style [character foible]s", typically followed by "Of course it will be your honor to [complete-mundane-but-arduous-task-X without aid from ninja allies]"*
Usually after they have shown up and helped out in some way. For example, once they procured tickets for an international flight, but Ron still got to carry the luggage.
First Name Basis: When she first meets Ron she calls him "Stoppable-san", despite his requests for her to switch to "Ron-san". After getting to know him better, she switches to the latter. He considers this a fist-pumping victory.
Ninja Training to be one at a secret ninja school in Japan.
Yamato Nadeshiko: Always reserved and composed. She fights with a paper folding fan.
Team Impossible is a group of three highly trained high-danger operatives who were in it for the cash. A client trying to contact them via their web site accidentally hit "k" before entering the address "impossible.com", resulting in Kim getting the call intended for them and undertaking her first heroic mission. They were content for the first three seasons to let Kim "have her fun", but they finally appear in the flesh during the episode "Team Impossible", in which they suborn Kim's rides, leaving her unable to get to her missions, in an effort to squeeze her out of hero work. They are eventually forced by Team Possible to stop interfering with them, and to join Global Justice.
Alliterative Name: The three members of the team are Dash Daman, Crash Cranston, and Burn Burnmen.
Always Someone Better: Kim to them; they had to sabotage her rides just to get her out of the way but when stuck in a situation similar to that of Kim's origin in A Stitch In Time, they were utterly stumped on what to do. Kim made them look like amateurs.
Badass Normal: All three of them lack superpowers, and are, in a sense, adult, male, mercenary versions of Team Possible, using gadgets and an arsenal of kung-fu.
Curbstomp Battle: This summerizes what happens when the three try to prevent Kim's antics by ending her adventures; forever. Ironiclly it's not Kim who thwarts them, but Wade, the guy who runs Kim's website for her and Ron, after they countered his hacking and fried his system as a result.
Jumped Off The Slippery Slope: These guys did this by forcing Kim out of hero work because she cut into their profit margins, because she does it for free (and occasionally asks for help to later missions). They also go from simply giving her a stern warning to trying to permenantly end her adventures.
Kick the Dog: They zap a moviegoer who refused to leave with a "Fork" when they try to intimidate Kim. The kid paid $9.75 to see the movie.
Missed the Call: Kim's first adventure was rescuing someone who tried to contact Team Impossible but reached her website instead.
Punch Clock Hero: They're mercenaries; they save the world just like Kim and Ron do, except they charge money for their missions. If you don't pay, you don't get help.

Chief of Global Justice, who occasionally recruits Kim to help with a case and is interested in learning the secret to her success.
Evil Twin: Sort of — Gemini is her evil fraternal twin, who doesn't look like her (even ignoring the fact that he's male) except that he also wears an eyepatch.
Reasonable Authority Figure: Unlike Team Impossible, she works with Kim to complete misions instead of trying to brush her aside because she didn't feel threatened by Kim's success. She picks up Kim's help in Season One and Kim's record grew to at least twice if not three times the size it was then when Team Impossible started picking on her, including at least a few more ops with Global Justice in the tie-in games.
A do-gooder Super Family Team composed of Shego's brothers—the somewhat dim-witted but principled Hego, the narcissistic and self-centered Mego, and the energetic Wego twins. Shego used to be part of the team before she quit and became a supervillain.
Cain and Abel: All of them are the Abels to Shego's Cain; it's implied she betrayed them at one point.
Curtains Match the Window: All of them - Hego has blue hair and blue eyes, Mego has purple hair and purple eyes, and the twins have red hair and red eyes. This is only when superpowered, though, as Hego appears in his civilian identity with black hair.
The Dividual: The twins do everything together and are always treated as one person, to the extent that both of them are known as "Wego."
Egocentric Team Naming: Team Go. It's assumed that Hego named the group as he's the leader and seems to be the eldest, but Mego is the self-centered one of the group. That is not to say, however, that Hego (who is not without his personality flaws) wouldn't do such an act.
Fashionable Asymmetry: Their outfits are harlequin-dazzle patterns (see Shego's entry above), of black and blue (Hego), purple (Mego), or red (the Wegos).
Zerg Rush: The twins' preferred fighting style is overwhelming the enemy with sheer numbers.
Connie and Lonnie Rockwaller
Voiced by: Grey DeLisle
The two older sisters of Kim's archrival, Bonnie, and her only known siblings.
Aloof Big Sisters: Connie and Lonnie seem very close to each other, but they don't seem all that close to Bonnie.
Always Someone Better: They're both this to Bonnie—Connie's the smartest of the Rockwaller sisters while Lonnie's said to be the most beautiful. They often claim, "Connie got all the brains, Lonnie got all the looks, and Bonnie got the rest."
Single-Minded Twins: Personality wise, they're identical to each other. Also, they're basically just meaner, bitchier versions of their younger sister, Bonnie. It's never said if Connie and Lonnie are twins, but the way they interact with each other strongly indicates that they are.
Talent Contest: According to Bonnie when she was signing up for her school Talent Show, her "older sibs" (presumably meaning Connie and Lonnie) won the Middleton High Talent Show multiple years in a row when they were students at the school.
Theme Twin Naming: With each other and their younger sister—"Connie," "Lonnie" and "Bonnie."
