!!The Heroes
[[folder:[=WordGirl=] / Becky Botsford]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Dannah Phirman

The main protagonist of the show. She is from the planet Lexicon, but crashed to Earth as a baby, where she was adopted by the Botsfords. As the 10-year-old superhero [=WordGirl=], she defends Fair City with her superpowers and exceptional vocabulary.
----
* AchillesHeel: She is hopeless at art, poetry, music, singing, and dancing.
** And [[KryptoniteFactor Lexonite]].
* AlienAmongUs: She is an alien from planet Lexicon.
* AllGirlsLikePonies: She is a major fan of "The Pretty Princess and Magic Pony Power Hour".
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Justified for [=WordGirl=], since that's what the creator of the show was really shooting for. Interestingly enough, her ''adoptive'' family are a ''different shade'' of ambiguous brown.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: She can breathe just fine in space.
* BerserkButton: [=WordGirl=] can't stand it when words are used incorrectly. Especially on purpose.
* BrainyBrunette: [=WordGirl=] knows the definition of every word that exists.
* CatchPhrase: Whenever she transforms into [=WordGirl=], she cries out, "Word up!"
* ChestInsignia: A star inside a pentagon.

* CrazyPrepared: [=WordGirl=] and Huggy have 999 different emergency plans.
* CutenessProximity: To kittens, unicorns, and other stereotypical cute things.
* {{Expy}}: Her origin and powers are very similar to that of Superman.
* GeniusBruiser
* HappilyAdopted: While being the only member of her family that seems to remember that she's adopted, Becky shows no inclination to find her real parents. It's also extremely easy for the viewers to forget she's adopted (aside from the opening theme singing she's "from the planet Lexicon") since it's almost never mentioned and she's very close to her family.
* [[TheHero The Heroine]]:
* HumanAlien: Looks like an ordinary human despite being an alien.
* InsufferableGenius: When it comes to vocabulary.
* KidHero
* KryptoniteFactor: Lexonite, a mineral from her home planet and a parody of kryptonite. It takes away her powers, drains her energy, and [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking makes her misuse and mispronounce words.]]
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Girl]]: Is often annoyed at how the townspeople are frequently TooDumbToLive.
* MuggleFosterParents: The Botsfords are ordinary humans and have no idea of Becky's secret identity. When they do (temporarily) find out in "Two-Brains Forgets", while shocked at first, they're extremely proud of her.
-->'''Tim:''' Look, Sally, it's our little girl as WordGirl. Hi, honey!
* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: Sometimes, she can lift and punch out giant robots. Other times, she can be restrained by ordinary people or objects.
* SuperpowerLottery
* {{Flight}}

* AnIcePerson[=/=]BreathWeapon
* SuperSenses
* SuperSpeed
* SuperStrength
* WeaksauceWeakness: [=WordGirl=] isn't so much defeated by a cute little kitten, but rather [[CutenessProximity easily distracted by one]]. She also compensates for her language abilities by showing a complete lack of competence in art, poetry, and dance.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Narrator]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Chris Parnell
The Narrator of the story is able to freely interact with the characters. He is biased toward the heroes, so often assists them by giving advice (for example: telling [=WordGirl=] where to find the villain she's after).
----
* DeadpanSnarker
* FirstPersonSmartass: The narrator refers to himself in the first person, and often offers his own (usually unsolicited) opinion on what's happening. Once, when Two-Brains was humiliating Tobey, he joined in.
-->'''Two-Brains:''' We all know you're just stalling because you have a silly schoolboy crush on [WordGirl]!
-->'''Tobey:''' Wh- I do ''not!''
-->'''Narrator:''' Do too, do too!
-->'''Tobey:''' ''You stay out of this!''
* InteractiveNarrator: He talks to characters all the time.
* LemonyNarrator

[[folder:Doctor Two-Brains / Professor Steven Boxleitner]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' TomKenny
He used to be a benevolent scientist who assisted [=WordGirl=], but a FreakLabAccident merged his brain with that of a mouse's, turning him evil.
----
* AbsentMindedProfessor
* ArchNemesis: He's close to being the BigBad in the series.
* AxCrazy
* BowtiesAreCool
* BrainyBrunette: When he was still Professor Boxleitner.
* ChildHater: Somewhat. Specifically [=WordGirl=] and Tobey.
* ComplexityAddiction
* EinsteinHair: After becoming Dr. Two-Brains.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He is against causing extreme pain to others.
* EvilAlbino: Due to Squeaky being an albino mouse.
* EvilGenius
* {{Expy}}: His characteristics is where the idea for [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Ice King]] happened. He is also an expy of Dr. Conners/Lizard from Spider-Man, and the Joker from Batman. His name is similar to that of Two-Face, also from Batman.
* FaceHeelTurn
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Was just a normal scientist until the awful experiment of reading Squeaky's mind went wrong.
* {{Idiosyncrazy}}: Cheese and mice.
* MadScientist
* OhCrap: As Dr. Boxleitner, he gives out this expression when Squeaky is pressing the red button that causes his experiment to read his mind turns him into Dr. Two-Brains.
* TeamDad: Even though he IS WordGirl's nemesis. Before his lab accident, Steven seemed to be somewhat of a mentor to her, and even as Two-Brains, he often shows signs of this trope. For example, in the episode "A Few Words From WordGirl", he gives her fatherly advice when she can't think of a good speech for Inspiration Day. ("You're WordGirl! Your actions inspire people more than anything you could say.") He also acted this way towards Tobey in "Mousezilla", saying he'd been following Tobey's career and addressing him as "Tobey, my lad", and was proud of his robotic expertise...at least until they started bickering over how to fight WordGirl.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Cheese, of course. A lot of his plans involves stealing cheese or inventing gadgets than turn things into cheese.
* WasOnceAMan: Well, he was human as Steven Boxleitner, until the experiment on Squeaky went haywire and he became half-mouse as a result.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: [=WordGirl=] and Dr. Boxleitner used to be friends, before he transformed into the evil Dr. Two Brains.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes
* WildHair

[[folder:Theodore "Tobey" [=McCallister=] III]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/PattonOswalt
A genius 10 year-old boy who terrorizes the city with giant robots. He also has an obsessive crush on [=WordGirl=].
----
* {{Adorkable}}
* BowtiesAreCool
* CharacterDevelopment: See StalkerWithACrush.
* EvilGenius
* FakeBrit: InUniverse; he drops the accent only when in the presence of his mother.
* GadgeteerGenius
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Tobey's threats to destroy the city are usually just out of an attempt to battle (and flirt with) [=WordGirl=].
* LovesMyAlterEgo: He treats Becky as just another citizen, or as something of a rival. Most of the time, he addresses her with casual disdain.
** In "By Jove, You've Wrecked My Robot!" Tobey accidentally revealed that he may actually have a crush on Becky, too. While trying to get her to admit her secret identity, he lets himself slip:
--> You both have the same hairstyle! And color! The same sparkling smile. The same ruby lips! The same... ''(realizes Becky is staring at him)'' I realize [[SayingTooMuch I've said too much]].
* MommasBoy: After being defeated, he usually gets taken away by his mother, who grabs him by the ear. Over the course of the series, her ability to tell where her son is at any given time became more and more exaggerated and ridiculous, to the point that one episode has her dropping out of a ''tree'', in the middle of a ''national park'', to haul him back home.
** Actually, Tobey seems to be somewhat ''afraid'' of his mother. The mere mention of her name is sometimes enough to make him jump and look around in terror. In the Miss Power special, Miss Power picks up on this right away and encourages WordGirl to make fun of him for it, which they both promptly do to the point that he has a [[HeroicBSOD Heroic BSOD]].
* NerdGlasses
* PreppyName
* StalkerWithACrush: At first. In the earlier seasons, he has little to no respect for WordGirl's boundaries. Hell, the very first episode has him declaring that once he can prove he's smarter than her, she'll be all his. And the robotic suit he tricks Johnson into giving her in "Go Gadget Go" is rigged so that once she's trapped inside, he can literally control her actions...ew. However, by the end of the show, he thankfully seems to have grown out of this. At the end of "It's Your Party And I'll Cry If I Want To", since he had a change of heart and didn't destroy Katie's birthday party, Wordgirl agrees with his suggestion that they get some ice cream. Later, in "The Robot Problem", when she has to go to Tobey for help defeating a robot, she declares that they make a pretty good team, to which he replies enthusiastically before catching himself. They also treat each other more like frenemies at this point than outright rivals.
* SweetTooth: To some degree.
* TemptingFate: At the end of "By Jove, You've Wrecked My Robot!" when Mrs. Botsford tells Tobey he's in big trouble, he scoffs at her and tells her she isn't his mother. Cue the sudden arrival of Mrs. [=McCallister=], complete with ominous lightning flashes.
* VerbalTic: From season two onward, the word "robot" is pronounced "robit".
* VillainousCrush: Tobey rather obviously has a thing for [=WordGirl=], though she continually rebuffs his affections.

* MinionWithAnFInEvil: She once attempted to enlist the help of her hulking grandson Eugene, although this was foiled by Violet when she catered to his [[GentleGiant timid nature]].
* ManipulativeBitch
* ObfuscatingDisability: Even when confronted with undeniable proof of her past crimes, people seem to have a tough time believing such a harmless little old lady could be planning to rob them, much to WordGirl's chagrin.
* PoweredArmor

* EvilCounterpart: The members of her family are oddly similar to Becky's in appearance; along with her parents she has a younger brother and an intelligent pet. And when you think about it, Becky's and Victoria's personalities have quite a few comparisons: they are both very competitive, excel in whatever they do, and are particularly arrogant.

* HumanAlien
* IShallTauntYou
* KnightOfCerebus: Completely outclasses [=WordGirl=] in power, is much smarter and more serious than the other villains, and nearly took over the world.
** Though, it's implied that she doesn't know what the word "victorious" meant.
* KnightTemplar: Probably the only villain to genuinely believe what they do is good.

* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity
* WouldHurtAChild: She gives WordGirl quite the beating when the latter starts rebelling against her.
** She also clearly doesn't care that Tobey is a child, and a non-superpowered child at that, being just as verbally cruel to him as she was to the other villains. He even gets a HeroicBSOD because of it!
** When she dumps all the villains in prison after taking over, Tobey and Eileen the Birthday Girl can be seen languishing in their own cells. She left two ten-year-old children in concrete cells for ''hours''. In addition, this is one of the only times Tobey and Eileen are ever seen in jail- unlike the other villains, they aren't used to this.

--> "It's time to show this Miss Power why the rest of the city can't STAND you guys!"
* GeniusDitz: She's usually only ''slightly'' less goofy and out-of-it than her husband, but the first time we see her in the courtroom she proves terrifyingly competent and composed, not letting control of the trial of Granny May slip for a second and refusing to fall for the sort of tricks she'd likely buy in her home life.
