Voiced by: Kyla Pratt

  • Alliterative Name
  • Balloon Belly: In "Tween Town"
  • Beauty Mark
  • Berserk Button: Insulting her. Lacienega usually pushes it.
  • Beware the Nice Ones
  • Brainy Brunette: It's stated that Penny gets straight As in school and she happens to have black hair.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: At times.
  • Butt Monkey: Gets her fair share of bad luck, whether it be from her friends constantly ditching her, or from her own parents.
  • Drives Like Crazy: In The Movie, Penny is seen driving like a reckless driver.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Go-Getter Girl
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She becomes this in the episode "Poetic Justice" when Dijonay improves at poetry and becomes just as good as her.
  • Lonely at the Top: In one episode, she trades success for her friends. while she does become successful, her friends refuse to talk to her and Penny ends up missing her old life and friends.
  • Nice Girl
  • Not So Above It All: Falls victim to peer pressure a few times. She sometimes goes along with whatever her friends do, whether they are right or wrong.
  • Only Sane Woman
  • Out-of-Character Moment/Took a Level in Jerkass: In the episode, "Pulp Boot Camp," she acts very rude and disrespectful to her parents and Suga Mama. She also turns against her friends and bullies them along with the Gross Sisters. She eventually gets sent to Boot Camp and then realizes the errors of her ways when the Gross Sisters refuse to house her and tell her that the fact that she was sent to boot camp, she was a hardened thug instead of a regular bully.
  • Properly Paranoid: In the episode "Thelma and Luis," when she finds out that the retirement home that Papi stayed in was actually a prison. She was right all along, but the adults didn't believe her (except for Suga Mama). She was proven right at the end of the episode, though.
    • In another episode, Penny's teacher gives her report on Hillary Clinton a failing grade, despite the paper being excellent in quality. Penny concludes that her teacher has a personal grudge against her, which gets her a lecture from her mother about "making excuses"...which it turns out Penny actually wasn't, because Penny's teacher did give her an unfair grade, but not precisely because of a grudge against Penny. Actually, the teacher had a grudge against Suga Mama, which she took out on Penny.
  • Straw Feminist
  • Strong Family Resemblance: It's been said several times that Penny looks a lot like Trudy.
  • The Unfavourite: Penny gets this when BeBe and CeCe are magically aged into teenagers. Her own mother even tells this directly to her face.

Papi Boulavardez

  • The Hyena
    • In one episode, he instead cries, twice. First, tears of joy when Suga Mama is marrying someone else, but she thinks he's sad. Second, he's sad when she's single again and back to her old self, and she thinks they're tears of joy.
  • Jerkass: Insults Suga Mama in Spanish.
  • Love at First Punch: More like "Love at First Insult", but in the movie he starts trying to court Suga Mama's clone when she insults him back.

  • No Guy Wants to Be Chased: Especially by Suga Mama. Inverted in the movie, too, wherein Suga Mama's clone (who can speak Spanish) starts throwing insults back at him. He immediately starts courting her (to no avail, though the rejections seem to make him all the more persistent).
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair
