* AlliterativeName: '''P'''enny '''P'''roud.
* BalloonBelly: In "Tween Town" when she indulges in a lot of food while the adults are gone.
* BeautyMark: Though in the movie it's revealed to be fake.
* BecomingTheMask: Joins the Gross Sisters to do research for an article she's writing. Not only does she fall into their ways, but she becomes so out of control that [[EvenEvilHasStandards the Gross Sisters don't want anything to do with her.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She can be downright devious when she puts her mind to it, and she has a vindictive streak that puts [[JerkAss LaCienega]] to shame.
* BigSisterInstinct: Despite her occasional annoyance with babysitting her younger twin siblings, if they should be in danger she'll drop everything to go and protect them.
* BrainyBrunette: It's stated that Penny gets straight As in school and she happens to have black hair.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: At times.
* ButtMonkey: Gets her fair share of bad luck, whether it be from her friends constantly ditching her, or from her own parents.
* CatchPhrase: Every once in a while, Penny's parents get on her nerves, and she mutters "I can't ''stand'' y'all!" Only to retract it when she's overheard.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: In TheMovie, Penny is seen driving recklessly.
* DudeMagnet: Penny has attracted a number of young men throughout the series. A few include [[BlackAndNerdy Myron]], [[ArrangedMarriage Kwok]], [[BigFun Carlos]], possibly [[OnlySaneMan Sticky]] at one point (implied in "Teacher's Pet"), [[DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery Johnny]], (initially) [[PrecociousCrush Peabo]], [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed 15 Cent]], [[DumbJock Omar]], [[{{Jerkass}} Tookie]], (possibly) [[NiceGuy Johnny Lovely]], [[JerkWithAHeartofGold Frankie]], and [[InterspeciesRomance Wally]] (although, he was unknowingly flirting with the Clone!Penny).
* ForeheadOfDoom: Many jokes have been made about how large her forehead is.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Penny seems to have inherited a love of animals from her mother, as shown in "Tiger Whisperer" and "Psycho Duck".
* GirlishPigtails: Her main hairstyle since she was 10 and she's quite feminine.
* GoGetterGirl: Combines her father's ambition with her mother's common sense.
* GreenEyedMonster: She becomes this in the episode "Poetic Justice" when Dijonay improves at poetry and becomes just as good as her.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Her two best friends constantly betray her, belittle her, and scheme behind her back.
* JerkassBall: Penny holds on to this in certain episodes, such as "Poetic Justice" when she starts being a jerk to Dijonay due to jealousy.
* LonelyAtTheTop: In one episode, she trades success for her friends. And while she does become successful, her friends refuse to talk to her and Penny ends up missing her old life and friends.
* LovableJock: Penny excels at basketball, baseball, and football. The last two of which she was on a team. And she still remains a decent person.
* NeverMyFault: Despite being the OnlySaneWoman, Penny usually subverts this trope. She normally refuses to admit her mistakes, but comes to apologize and feel remorse for her actions at the end of the episode. Examples:
** In "Tween Town," when she is grounded for lying to her parents about going to a night club, Penny spends the first half of the episode moping and complaining about her parents. She ignores the fact that had she not lied to her parents, she wouldn't have been on punishment in the first place. She also wishes for the adults to disappear out of spite.
** She also didn't feel like she did anything wrong when she was proven wrong about Oscar wanting to have an affair with Debra Williams, Trudy's old college roommate. Sure Penny was correct to be suspicious, but she was very rude to the lady and she flat out called her a homewrecker.
* NiceGirl: She's usually a caring, polite, and selfless person, with it being rare for her to catch the JerkassBall.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Falls victim to peer pressure a few times. She sometimes goes along with whatever her friends do, whether they are right or wrong.
* OnlySaneWoman: Often shares this role with her mother, or else they trade off depending on the episode.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: 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.
* ProperlyParanoid:
** 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 [[RightForTheWrongReasons not precisely because of a grudge against Penny]]. Actually, the teacher had a grudge against ''Suga Mama'', which she took out on Penny.
** Subverted in "Ain't Nothing but The Real Thingy Baby." Penny was very suspicious of the fact that Oscar and were having an affair with Trudy's old college roommate, Debra Williams. It also helped that Oscar did show signs that he was willing to do so. In the end, she was proven wrong.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Penny comes to this conclusion in "Forbidden Date" when she and Oscar have talk at the end of the episode to discuss why he's so against her dating yet.
-->'''Penny:''' It's not like that daddy. I'm a different woman after tonight. When I first saw [[BigFun Carlos]] I thought, "This definitely won't be my first love." But as the date when on, I found another side. He's smart, warm, funny, sweet, brave. Actually, he reminded me a lot of you, daddy.
-->'''Oscar:''' That big guy?
-->'''Penny:''' Yeah, he's a good person. And that's what important. Not how cute a guy is, how much ice he's wearing, what kind of car he drives.
* StrawFeminist: Occasionally for laughs, and normally to gang up with Suga Mama and Trudy against her father.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: It's been said several times that Penny looks a lot like Trudy.
* TheUnfavourite: Penny gets this when [=BeBe=] and [=CeCe=] are magically aged into teenagers. Her own mother even tells this directly to her face.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Her GirlPosse includes an AlphaBitch (Lacienega), a supposed best friend with ChronicBackStabbingDisorder (Dijonay), and a ShrinkingViolet (Zoey) who always lets herself be pressured by the other two.

[[folder:Oscar Proud]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Tommy Davidson

Penny's overprotective father.
* AchievementsInIgnorance: You'd be surprised how often he warps the laws of physics by simply being so inept at whatever he's doing.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Penny views Oscar as this due to him acting immature for his age.
* BerserkButton: Don't mention "Penny" and "boys" near him.
* TheBully: Is revealed to be this in middle school in an episode when one of his victims turned out to be an owner of a private school Oscar wanted to enroll his twins in.
* BullyingADragon: Oscar sometimes foolishly provokes people and/or animals that are bigger and/or stronger than him to anger. Considering Oscar's ButtMonkey status, it usually goes as well as you would expect.
* BumblingDad: Subverted. Despite being a clumsy goofball, parenting may be one of the few things he's good at.
* ButtMonkey: On the receiving end of 90% of the slapstick the show has to offer.
* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: With the amount of punishment he receives, you'd think he'd be a saint by now. But of course, it wouldn't be much of a show if that were the case.
%%* CassandraTruth: See ProperlyParanoid below.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "TRUDAAAAAYY!!"
* TheChewToy: Yes, plenty of fans enjoy seeing Oscar suffer, only when he deserves it.
* DeadpanSnarker: Constantly, which usually puts him on the bad end of Suga Mama's cane.

* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: In one episode when Oscar visits the zoo, Oscar admits to torturing an elephant with his friends. When the elephant sees him again, [[DoNotTauntCthulhu it does not end well for Oscar.]]
* DitzyGenius: Oscar is very intelligent, but he acts ditzy and immature for his age.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: As a consistent source of ridicule and mockery by family and others because of his terrible food products and history of failures, Oscar craves respect and notoriety which he outright stated when he wasnít credited in creating a scavenger hunt competition for Wizard Kelly.
%%* {{Expy}}: Of Martin from ''Series/{{Martin}}''.
* FatAndSkinny: The skinny to Felix's Fat.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The responsible (owns his own house and constantly tries to improve his career) to Bobby's foolish (still lives with his mother and has no job).
* GeniusDitz: His attempts at new snack recipes occasionally reach MadScientist levels, spawning a SuperSerum in one episode and a perpetual multiplying formula in the movie.

%%* HenpeckedHusband: [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale And how!!]]
* JerkassBall: On the Christmas special, he acts more mean than usual (even though it wasn't really polite for the homeless people to keep coming back to his house uninvited).
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sure Oscar may act obnoxious, but he is well-meaning and cares deeply for his wife and kids.
* LethalChef: His Proud Snax makes a lot of people either gag or feel sick after they eat them. The only one who likes them, however, is Peabo.
* ManChild: Oscar acts so immature for his age that even Penny (and Peabo) is more mature than he is most of the time.
* MenUseViolenceWomenUseCommunication: Oscar is the personification of this trope. Or at least he would be if he wasn't a huge wimp.
* MistakenForCheating: In "Ant Nothing But The Real Thingy Baby," Penny suspects Oscar of cheating on Trudy with the latter's old college roommate, Debra Williams. It also helps that Oscar did show eagerness to wisit Debra's house, which only supported Penny's suspicion. Penny is proven wrong at the end of the episode when Oscar and Debra explain why they were willing to communicate with each other, and there relationship was strictly platonic.
* NeverLiveItDown: An InUniverse example. Oscar will never live down missing the shot at his high school basketball game. The moment is constantly brought up by Wizard Kelly.
* NoRespectGuy: All he really wants is to be a success. All get gets him is his head handed to him. Repeatedly.
* OverprotectiveDad: He's rabid about keeping Penny away from boys. His weakness for pretty girls implies that he might be projecting just a little bit.
* PapaWolf: Wherever Penny is concerned, he immediately grows a spine made of adamantium.
* ProperlyParanoid: About the Talking Baby and his ability to talk, but nobody believes him.
* StrawLoser: Meager job, unsuccessful, unathletic, wimpy, and all around untalented. He all but exists to make Penny and Trudy look better by comparison.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: "Teacher's Pet" shows that Oscar got ''all'' of his looks from his father.
* ThisLoserIsYou: A reasonably intelligent man who nonetheless is a perennial failure due to his stubbornness and obsession with becoming a successful businessman. He's basically a G-Rated [[Theatre/DeathOfASalesman Willy Loman.]]
* TooDumbToLive: He often falls into this when he ignores advice given to him regarding his safety and ends up bringing some of the bad luck on himself and also going through near-death experiences.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Not ugly, but ''very'' skinny compared to Trudy's curvaceous body.
%% * TheUnfairSex:
* TheUnfavorite: Subverted. It's obvious that his mother prefers his older brother, but she makes it clear that she loves Oscar just as much.

* WellDoneSonGuy: To Suga Mama, although she does admit she's proud of him on occasion.
* WouldntHurtAChild: In the Thingy episode, he doesn't try to attack all the babies when they repeatedly hit him in the face. Subverted when he tries to fight [[{{Jerkass}} the Talking Baby]].

* LoveAtFirstPunch: More like "Love at First Insult", but in the movie he starts trying to court Suga Mama's clone when she insults him back.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Looks like an elderly version of Creator/CesarRomero as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker sans makeup.
* NoGuyWantsToBeChased: 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).

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Not as horrible as Dijonay and Lacienega, but even Zoey can abandon Penny when she caves into peer pressure.

[[folder:The Gross Sisters]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Raquel Lee (Nubia)

Three sisters who constantly bully Penny and her friends into giving them their money.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: They have blue skin, though the reason of this is that they're really ashy.
* BigLittleSister: Olay is the youngest but the tallest, Nubia is the middle child who is medium sized, and Gina's the oldest despite being the smallest.
* BigSisterInstinct: "The Makeover" shows that Nubia has a protective streak for her sisters, threatening to beat up Penny and her friends if they don't do a good job with giving Olay a makeover.

* GangOfBullies: A trio of bullying sisters who have been taking money from their peers since they were young.

** In "The Party". They don't show up to torment Penny... they actually want to have some fun, and not at ''anyone'''s expense.
** [[CoolOldLady Suga Mama]] is one of the only people they genuinely respect.
** Papi also earned their respect during the episode where the kids had to live in different cultural homes. Apparently Papi liked them enough to teach them Spanish, with Gina once using his signature laugh.
