     W.O.O.H.P. 

Sam

Voiced by: Jennifer Hale
Samantha "Sam" has long red hair, emerald green eyes and a green catsuit. She's the most intelligent and practical of the group.

  • Action Girl: Often leads the team, displays the best hand-to-hand combat skills, and gets kidnapped least. She's usually the one who takes control over the girls' missions and puts her smarts to use.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Alex calls her Sammy.
  • Alliterative Name: In one episode, she presents herself as "Samantha Simpson." Okay, they were undercover, but they always use their own names for these situations, so why not?
  • Badass Adorable: She's beautiful and deadly at the same time.
  • Badass Bookworm: The first OP has her expertly using a chemistry kit as Clover and Alex watch her in amazement. While at the same time, she is able to fight off the random villains that the trio encounter just as effectively as her partners. AND she also manages to get and keep excellent grades at school.
  • Bare Your Midriff: She generally bares her midriff in larger amounts than Clover and Alex, but not as frequently.
  • Beauty, Brains and Brawn: The Brains.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: You do not want to get her angry.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The Redhead.
  • Braids of Action: Temporarily, during the Gladiator episode.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: A Running Gag in the show is that she winds up like this on a routine basis.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Extreme Omnivore: Eats a hot towel while at a sushi restaurant, and seems to enjoy it. However, in her defence, the villains had recently stolen her intelligence with their Stupidity Inducing Attack, so she at least thought it was food.
  • First Gray Hair: One episode had Sam finding a gray hair in her head (unusual, considering she's a teenager, but not thoroughly impossible) and she spent much of the rest of the episode worrying about her age and seeming young. The Aesop of the episode, as delivered by a Cool Old Lady: "It's not how old you are, it's how you are being old!"
  • Freudian Trio: The Superego to Clover's Ego and Alex's Id.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Played with. She's a bookish and studious girl, but also gorgeous and popular.
  • Hypocrite: One Season 3 episode has her acting like a super neat-freak and constantly nagging the girls to clean up the apartment. At the end of the episode we see her room, which is a dump that shows no signs of ever having been cleaned.
  • Intrepid Reporter: The major that Sam pursues as of Season 6.
  • The Leader: Of the levelheaded variety, she's the unofficial leader of the trio.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Has this appeal In-Universe and out.
  • Nice Girl: She's this if you don't poush her buttons.
  • Only One Name: She's mostly referred to as just "Sam." However, see the Alliterative Name entry above for how this might be subverted.
  • Only Sane Woman: Most of the time.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches to her waist.
  • Red-Headed Heroine: One of the heroes and has red hair.
  • Redhead In Green: In her spy outfit.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead
  • Team Mom: She's generally the most mature and responsible of the main three.
  • The Smart Girl
  • The Spock
  • Tomboyish Name: Sam can go both ways as a guy and a girl's name.
  • Town Girls: The Neither to Clover's Femme and Alex' Butch.
  • TV Genius: Some episodes give her shades of this.

Clover

Voiced by: Andrea Baker
Clover has medium blonde hair, blue eyes and a red catsuit. Probably the show's most stereotypical character, Clover is a shopping addicted, boy crazy, teenage "fashionista".

Alex

Voiced by: Katie Leigh (Season 1-2), Katie Griffin (Season 3-4)
Alexandra "Alex" has short black hair, tan skin, light brown eyes and her spy catsuit is yellow. Alex is the most naive and innocent of the group, and she's interested in sports and athletics.

  • Action Girl: She usually serves as the heavy hitter, and is also the most athletic of the three.
  • Adorkable: She's a cute sporty girl, sometimes awkward, ditzy and naive, and very friendly.
  • Ambiguously Brown
    • Maybe not as ambiguous as first thought—some fans have examined screenshots of her parents, and have come to the conclusion that Alex's mom is at least half if not fully Hispanic, while her dad looks half-white/half-Hispanic.
    • Season 6 retcons her dad into being similar in appearance to her mother, thus completely shattering this trope.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Beauty, Brains and Brawn: The Brawn.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She can get pretty mean when she's angry.
  • The Big Guy: Being the most athletic of the trio, though she's also The Chick and The Heart.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The Brunette.
  • Butt Monkey: At times, mostly because of her clumsiness and naivete.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Sometimes.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Ironically, since she's the athlete of the group.
  • The Ditz: Though Clover is more of a blonde Valley Girl stereotype, Alex is often the ditziest of the three.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Though she isn't too bad, she had a lot of trouble passing her driver's exam and is generally considered the worst driver of the three. Ironically however, she is often the one to drive.
  • Freudian Trio: The Ego to Sam's Superego and Clover's Id.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She actually wanted to grow up and either be a veterinarian or study animal physiology.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Her oldest friend is a toy turtle named Ollie and she has a teddy bear backpack.
  • In-Series Nickname: Her full name is "Alexandra", but everyone call her "Alex".
  • The Heart: Very much so, she tries to keep her friends together, and is often the mediator between Clover and Sam.
  • Kindly Vet: The major that Alex pursues as of Season 6.
  • The Kirk: Even though Sam's the leader,, she's more of the captain in this case.
  • The Klutz
  • Mixed Ancestry: Alex is half-Caucasian and half-Hispanic.
  • Nice Girl: By far one of the nicest characters in the series.
  • Only One Name: At least up until season 6, where her father, "Dr. Cassoi", makes a second appearance.
  • Only Sane Woman: Sometimes, especially when Sam and Clover are bickering.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: The most athletic of the three.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Alex is probably the most straight-up example of the three.
  • Sweet Tooth: Frequently played for laughs in the 6th season.
  • Tomboy: She loves sports and video games.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Clover's Girly Girl.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: While she's obviously the most tomboyish of the main three, Alex is also really into fashion and boys, sometimes to the same extremes as Clover.
  • Tomboyish Name: "Alex" is short for Alexandra.
  • Town Girls: The Butch to Sam's Neither and Clover's Femme.
  • Trademark Favorite Food:
    • She loves Asian cuisine—especially Chinese food.
    • Her favorite type of muffin is natural bran.

Terrence Lewis

Voiced by: Matt Charles

Tim Scam

Voiced by: Michael Gough

  • Card-Carrying Villain: In his first appearance, Clover calls him out on the scumbag he is. His response? A small "Thank you." To be fair, he's far from the only villain in the show who exhibits this behavior.
  • Co-Dragons: With Boogie Gus and Helga Von Guggen in Season 4.
  • Evil Genius: He's a crafty little scam artist.
  • Greed: His main motive. Averted in his first appearance, where he wanted to drain the Earth of its water supply, which would have undoubtedly killed all life on the planet (including himself).
  • Hypocrite: Feels that WHOOP never appreciated his genius and the technological advances he brought to the organization, despite the fact that he used said technology for his own selfish interests.
  • Recurring Character: Has made more appearances than any other villain in the series to date, including Terry.
  • The Sociopath: Very likely, considering that his reasons for becoming evil aren't as petty as most of the other recurring villains. Most of the others suffer from (rather minor) disappointments that cause them to snap. Scam, however, is depicted as perfectly sane (for the most part) and practically kills people for its own sake.
  • Sdrawkcab Alias: Mac Smit.
    • This trope actually becomes a plot-point in one episode, where they finally realize who he really is because they see his name-tag reflected backwards in a metal panel.

Boogie Gus

Voiced by: Joe Motiki

  • Almighty Janitor: He worked for WOOHP as part of the custodial staff before becoming a villain.
  • Co-Dragons: With Tim Scam and Helga Von Guggen in Season 4.
  • Disco Dan: Is he ever.
  • Funny Afro
  • Make Wrong What Once Went Right: His first appearance had him travel back in time to become Jerry's friend and convince him to create an evil version of WOOHP called the "World Organization of Harming People."

     Others 

Mandy

Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

  • Alpha Bitch
  • Annoying Laugh: Mandy has a really annoying laugh. It sounds like a goat's bleating.
  • Beauty Mark
  • Big Bad: Once as a Future Badass where she nearly took over the world. And of the one hour Totally Busted special when she and her lackies get infected by a shampoo that makes them "spy hunters" bent on killing Sam, Clover and Alex.
  • Book Dumb: She actually got straight Fs on her report card at one point, and the report was originally thought to be Alex's, which had As and Bs on it, but it turned out that there was actually a mix-up at their school. And yet Mandy somehow managed to graduate from high school and go to college.
  • Damsel in Distress: She gets mistaken for Clover and kidnapped in one episode, resulting in the Spies having to bail her out. Likewise a Halloween episode had the spies have to save her from zombies which she herself had accidentally summoned.
  • Evil Counterpart/Not So Different: Not "evil" per se, but when you really think about it, Mandy's essentially Clover without any of her redeeming qualities, and they do have a lot of the same interests.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: She wears a lot of purple on the show—rarely does she wear something that's not purple. Even all the spysuits she wore on the show are purple.
  • Jerkass: Usually this whenever she's seen.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Surprisingly, Mandy has shown the capacity to be a genuinely nice person, but it never lasts long and she always goes back to being mean again if she's provoked in some way.
  • Only One Name: It's never revealed what Mandy's last name is.
  • Popular Is Dumb: It's implied (and proven) that Mandy is Book Dumb and does poorly in school.
  • Purple Eyes
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The loud and aggressive Red Oni to her cousin Mindy's calm and collected Blue Oni.
  • Rich Bitch: It's been said (and shown) that Mandy comes from a very wealthy family.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: To all the girls, but mainly to Clover.
  • Talking To Herself: With Sam—they're both voiced by Jennifer Hale.
  • The Slacker: Wants to be famous without doing any of the work. She hires an intern to pretty much do everything for her in season 6.
  • Sixth Ranger: Yes, in one episode she wound up discovering the girls' secret and Jerry actually let her join WOOHP on the spot. Naturally, she wound up being a hinderence (though pivotal in stopping that episode's Big Bad) that come the end of the mission, she begged to be released. To which she was mindwiped of the whole events. In her defense, Jerry just threw Mandy into doing the mission with the girls without even doing any kind of basic training.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: She continues acting like a Jerkass to Sam, Clover, and Alex even after they saved her in an episode—although to be fair, Mandy usually gets her memory erased afterwards, so she doesn't actually remember Sam, Clover and Alex saving her.
  • Valley Girl: Even worse than Clover—and that's really saying something!

Dominique and Caitlin

Voiced by: Caitlin—Katie Griffin; Dominique—Andrea Baker

  • Ambiguously Brown: Caitlin.
  • Beta Bitches: Dominique and Caitlin follow Mandy's lead.
  • Girl Posse: To Mandy.
  • Satellite Characters: Other than being Mandy's friends and occasional rivals to Sam and Alex, respectively, Dominique and Caitlin don't really add much to the story. They're written out of the series after Evil Graduation and are replaced by Mandy's cousin, Mindy, who's just like Mandy, except she's a Dark-Skinned Blonde with a thick Southern accent.
  • Those Two Girls: As previously mentioned, Dominique and Caitlin really don't add much to the show's plot, and when they aren't with Mandy, they're with each other—in fact, Dominique and Caitlin seem closer to each other than they do to Mandy.
  • Valley Girls: Just like their dominant "friend," Mandy.

Mindy
