The hero of the series. A 12-year-old boy with a magic notebook, he joined the Scribblenauts organization so he could become a Scribblenaut. This sends him around the world on a quest around the world to gather the "Starites", special stars created by fulfilling his missions.

- Child Soldiers: He has been sent to war several times.
- Instant Expert: After spawning an object, he instantly becomes a master of using it.

- Mad Scientist: In one level, he decides to make a zombie out of random body parts.
- Master of Disguise: He has a variety of disguises, using both avatars and items.
