open/close all folders
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
- 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
- Badass Bookworm
- 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

- 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.
- Fiery Redhead
- Freudian Trio: The Superego to Clover's Ego and Alex's Id.
- Hollywood Nerd
- 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
- Nerds Are Sexy: Has this appeal In-Universe and out.

- Significant Green-Eyed Redhead
- Team Mom: She's generally the most mature and responsible of the main three.
- The Smart Girl
- The Spock
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Kind of in between—she's the girly girl to Alex's tomboy, and could be seen as the tomboy to Clover's girly girl.
- Tomboyish Name
- Town Girls: The Neither to Clover's Femme and Alex' Butch.
- TV Genius: Some episodes give her shades of this.

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".
- Action Fashionista
- Action Girl
- Arch-Enemy: Geraldine, and arguably Mandy. Sometimes she has a friendly rivalry with Sam.
- Allergic to Routine: Clover tends gets bored rather easily. Perhaps this may explain why she has an obsession with boys…
- Ambition Is Evil: Clover usually tries to get famous. In fact, such a behavior is strongly explicit during the episode "Model Citizens" in which Clover and Mandy compete in a beauty contest. There are many other examples though.
- Badass Adorable
- Balloon Belly: She gets pretty fat in "Passion Patties", after gorging herself on Ms. Bittersweet's cookies. The only way to get rid of the fat was to use an antidote.
- Beauty, Brains and Brawn: The Beauty.
- Berserk Button: Don't dare to say that Clover uses clothes bought in a liquidation. It never ends well… She doesn't like being turned down by a guy as well.
- Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The Blonde.
- Butt Monkey
- Clothing Damage: This happens A LOT to Clover. This is especially explored during "Attack Of The 50 Foot Mandy".
- Corrupt the Cutie: This happens to Clover's intern, Tara, due to Clover's influence. She's not seen recovering.
- Call to Agriculture: She had to visit a farm during "Spies on the Farm".
- Cloudcuckoolander: Sometimes she gets lost in her dreams, specially during missions.
- Deadly Upgrade: She becomes a super agent during "Super Agent Much?". Do you want more?
- Dumb Blonde: Sometimes. She's usually smarter than she lets on.
- Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Occasionally does this.
- The Fashionista: Pursues fashion design as a major as of Season 6.
- Freudian Trio: The Id to Sam's Superego and Alex's Ego.
- Furry Fandom: Clover turning into a furry cat? The walking, talking, human animals in the episode Animal World?
- Girly Bruiser: Clover plays the trope the straightest as she's more of a girly girl than the others.
- Good Bad Girl
- Go-Karting with Bowser: This happens many times with Clover. For example, during the episodes "Sis-Ka BOOM-Bah!" and "Evil Sorority" when she "fights" alongside with Mandy like… uh… best friends?
- Granola Girl: Stated to be a vegetarian, but her love of fish and seafood would technically make a "pescetarian" (a semi-vegetarian that eats fish and seafood).
- Gratuitous French: Quite evident.
- Hormone-Addled Teenager
- I Have You Now, My Pretty: Happens to Clover way too many times to count.
- Jack of All Stats: Clovers suits well here. She is strong, but not the strongest. She is smart, but not the smartest. In fact, even Jerry had problems to justify her presence in the team (during the episode "Like, So Totally Not Spies").
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Too many times to count.
- Lovable Alpha Bitch: In contrast to Mandy, who was more of a classic Alpha Bitch.
- Lovable Sex Maniac: She is not an extreme example like a certain character from a recent anime by Gainax (Anarchy Panty), but she seems to have a natural tendency for love.
- The McCoy
- Only One Name: As far as we know…
- Rape, Pillage, and Burn: During the episode "Evil Sorority".
- Satellite Love Interest: A lot of her Temporary Love Interests were this.
- Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Has this relationship with Mandy.
- Skewed Priorities: Sometimes. Clover finds herself caring more about fashion and boys than about the missions she and the girls go on.
- Space Whale Aesop: One episode has Clover declaring that it's better to have a big head than to have a big everything else.
- Spoiled Sweet: Yes, Captain Obvious!
- Strapped to an Operating Table: In "Starstruck".
- Talks Like a Simile: From time to time.
- Temporary Love Interest: Practically every episode she has one.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Alex's Tomboy.
- Town Girls: The Femme to Sam's Neither and Alex' Butch.
- Tsundere: Type A, sometimes.
- Valley Girl
- Zerg Rush: Clover was leading the fandom of Ricky Mathis during the episode "A Thing For Musicians" in a very dangerous way.

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
- 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
- The Big Girl
- Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The Brunette.
- Butt Monkey: At times, mostly because of her clumsiness and naivete.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Sometimes.
- Cute Clumsy Girl
- The Ditz
- 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".
- Kindly Vet: The major that Alex pursues as of Season 6.
- The Kirk
- The Klutz
- Mixed Ancestry: Alex is half-Caucasian and half-Hispanic.
- Nice Girl: By far on the nicest characters in the series.
- Only One Name: At least up until season 6, where her father, "Dr. Cassoi", makes a second appearance.
- 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.
- 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.

Gerald James "Jerry" Lewis
Voiced by: Jess Harnell (Season 1-2), Adrian Truss (Season 3-6)
The founder and administrator of W.O.O.H.P., the World Organization Of Human Protection, Jerry is responsible for briefing the girls on their missions.
- Accidental Pervert: A milder example, but one episode has him summon the girls early in the morning and recording their interactions with a camcorder. At one point, he does a close up on Sam, who happens to be in a towel in the process. Jerry is quite embarrassed over it.
- Authority Equals Asskicking
- Badass Grandpa
- Cain and Abel: The Abel to Terrence's Cain.
- Catchphrase: "Oh, my!" and "Ta-ta for now!", amongst others.
- Colonel Badass
- Cool Old Guy
- Deadpan Snarker
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Does ALOT of stuff to the girls For the Lulz, particularly his methods of transporting them, but has also saved their lives a number of times.
- The Mentor
- My Greatest Failure: Selling his brother out when they got caught cheating on an exam.
- Parental Substitute: He acts as a parental figure to the girls and, at times, scolds them when they messed up. They even share plenty of heartwarming moments.
- Theme Twin Naming: "Terry" and "Jerry". Oh, and the spin-off reveals they have a sister named Sherry.

- 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
- 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.
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."
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.
- 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: Purple is her signature color and is always seen wearing it.
- 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 does poorly in school. 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.
- 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.
- 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
