Portrayed by: Jamie Lynn Spears
- Academic Athlete: Straight A student and great at every sport.
- The Ace: Especially in season 1, when she was the only one who was allowed to solve everyone's problems and be perfect at everything. Thankfully toned down later where she's more of a Jack-of-All-Trades.
- Big Sister Instinct: She's very protective of Dustin.
- Character Title: The show is named after her.
- Cool Big Sis: To Dustin.
- Deadpan Snarker: Sometimes.
- Dude Magnet:
- Zig-Zagging Trope. She's actually not much more of a Dude Magnet than pretty much any female lead in most similar shows. Zoey is supposed to be a popular girl, so she's obviously seen as attractive at her school, but she only has a reasonable number of admirers or potential love interests in four seasons: besides Chase, there's Logan (who initially flirts with her, but also with her friend Dana), Danny in one episode of season 3, James in season 4, Jeremiah Trottman (who was attracted to Lola as well), and a group of desperate boys in the last episode who later went after Lola too.
- On occasion, even subverted. There's one episode when Zoey is bartering with a guy for a favor and he asks a date in return: Zoey assumes he wants a date with her, but it turns out he's after her friend Nicole.
- Everyone Loves Blondes: She's blonde and one of the most popular students, and Chase falls for her at first sight. Also Played with, because her brunette friend Lola gets just as much attention from the boys, if not more so.
- The Fashionista: She has a good style and fashion sense.
- Fashion Designer: She aspires to be one, and she often designs, customize and makes clothing.
- Go-Getter Girl: Zoey gets good grades, takes parts in many school activities, and she's a supportive mother figure not only to her friends, but also willing to help pretty much anyone in the school. In the last episode of season 1, she was tutoring all her friends and other students in different subjects before an important exam.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's a young, pretty, blonde girl who is known for being caring and compassionate towards people.
- The Heart: She tends to be the mediator and the voice of reason in her group.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: She's good at pretty much everything, but rarely the best. She's the best at dancing, but not at acting (Lola), singing (Michael), sports (Dana/Logan) or grades (Nicole/Quinn). She's popular with boys, but it's stated that Lola is considered the hottest girl in school.
- Last Minute Hook Up: With Chase in the finale.
- The Leader: Of the level-headed, headstrong and charismatic type.
Lola: And you'll fix it?Zoey: Yes, I'm Zoey. Are you new?
- She lampshades it in season 4:
- Magnetic Heroine: She's liked by everyone, and her friends and peers often looked to her for advice and guidence.
- Ms. Fanservice
- New Transfer Student: In the first episode.
- Nice Girl: Almost too nice to believe.
- Oblivious to Love: Despite multiple attempts by Chase to tell her his feelings. It even gets to the point where even a random girl (pulled aside by Lola) can tell that Chase likes Zoey, but Zoey herself cannot tell.Lola: Ginny, could you come here a minute?Ginny: What's up?Lola: 'Blank' is in love with Zoey. Fill in the blank.Ginny: (as though it were the most obvious answer in the world) Chase.Lola: Thanks for playing.
- Probably not. As of Sep. 2015 it is revealed that since the time capsule episode she is well aware of his feelings and is reciprocating inside.
- Official Couple: With Chase.
- Only Sane Woman: Especially in season 1, when her two roommates, Nicole and Dana, were always fighting. Overall, she's always the most levelheaded in the group, though Chase is a close second (but unlike Zoey, he's not without his quirks).
- Pink Means Feminine: She loves that color and owns a lot of pink things.
- Plucky Girl: She never gives up.
- Team Mom: Definitely acts like a motherly figure to everyone, especially her little brother, Dustin.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Inverted. She's mostly a very fashionable and feminine girl with girly interests, however she's still Zoey, so the writers made her good at everything, including sports.
- You Go, Girl!: It's the plot of the first episode. Subverted later in the episode "Wrestling", one of the rare instances where Zoey doesn't come out on top.
- Will They or Won't They?: With Chase. They do.
Portrayed by: Paul Butcher
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Sometimes, when he needs his sister to get him out of trouble.
- The Artifact: As of season 3. It's not clear why he was still in the opening credits (and always billed second after Zoey, due to being first alphabetically by last name).
- Bratty Half-Pint: Sometimes. Very much so in the last episode "Chasing Zoey".
- Child Prodigy: He shares an 8th grade geometry class with his elder sister.
- The Load: Sometimes.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Feminine Boy to Trisha's Masculine Girl.
- Out of Focus: He barely appeared in the last two seasons.
- Tagalong Kid: The only kid in the main cast, and frequently hangs out with Zoey and her friends.
- Wise Beyond Their Years: He's smart for his age.
Portrayed by: Sean Flynn
- Adorkable: For being a dorky, clumsy but lovable Nice Guy, to the point that even Lola falls for him in one episode.
- Back for the Finale: In the last episode and in a rather touching way.
- Cannot Spit It Out: To a ridiculous extent. He spends 3 seasons pining after Zoey. In one episode, he tries to text his feelings to her, and her cell phone falls into a fountain. After Zoey finally finds out how he feels...he gets Put on a Bus to England.
- Chick Magnet: Thanks to his adorkable-ness, he is not so bad in this department (Melissa, Lola, Rebecca, Gretchen, and eventually Zoey).
- Deadpan Snarker: Among the male characters, Chase surely is the biggest one in the series.
- Deuteragonist: Being the male lead and the title character's love interest.
- Distracted by the Sexy: He crashes into a flagpole on his bike due to staring at Zoey.
- Embarrassing Middle Name: Bartholemew.
- Funny Afro: His bushy "Jewish afro" constantly referenced by the other characters. He tends to shrug it off, but lampshades it himself after Zoey throws a pillow at him that knocks him off his chair. He gets up, pats his head and exclaims "You dented my 'fro!"
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Michael.
- I Can't Dance: And well aware of it.
- Just Friends: with Zoey in Season 3, after he has convinced everyone (including himself) that he's over his crush.
- The Klutz: He's very prone to falling down.Zoey: Where's Chase?Michael: Oh, you know Chase. He's probably running to see you right now but he fell down a flight of stairs.
- The Lancer: to Zoey, and occasionally Logan.
- Love at First Sight: With Zoey.
- Love Makes You Dumb: Several times, mainly in Season 1
- Meaningful Name: Chase (as in 'pursuit'). Came in handy for naming the series finale TV movie "Chasing Zoey" ("Chase"-ing Zoey, Chase 'n Zoey).
- Nice Guy: A very sweet natured, loyal, and honest person, and he gets along with everyone in the group.
- Nice Jewish Boy
- Official Couple: With Zoey.
- Only Sane Man: He constantly falls into this, something that is obviously not very difficult when your competition is Logan and Michael.
- Put on a Bus: To England, in the last season.
- Running Gag:
- Him falling down the first time he sees Zoey every season.
- Jokes about his bushy hair.
- Every time he attempts to tell Zoey he loves her or make a date with her, something gets in the way.
- Single-Target Sexuality: He had other girlfriends at some point, but his heart was always with Zoey.
- Stalker with a Crush: Despite being the nice guy, he lapses into this a couple of times in Season 1. He atones for it in Season 2's "Time Capsule" and never goes back.
- Will They or Won't They?: With Zoey.
Portrayed by: Kristin Herrera

- Deadpan Snarker: Out of all characters, Dana definitely wins the snarking trophy, even though she only appears in the first season.

- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: As arrogant and sarcastic as she is, she's still a good friend to Zoey and the rest of the group.
- Passionate Sports Girl: She is into sports and enjoys skateboarding.

- Sugar and Ice Personality: Though we never really see the sugar part that often, due to her being Put on a Bus too soon.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Nicole's Girly Girl.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Nicole.
- You Go, Girl!: Along with Zoey, she is one of the first girls on the PCA Basketball Team.
Portrayed by: Christopher Massey
- Ambiguously Bi: He's described guys as hot before.Logan: Why do you waste your time with the drama club?

Portrayed by: Alexa Nikolas
- Ambiguously Bi: She definitely likes boys, but she also fawns over Zoey a lot, even more than everyone else. In "Girls will be Boys," she also says it is hot when Lola talks in her guy voice when she was disguised as a boy.
- Brainless Beauty: Downplayed, she's flighty and shallow, but apparently a good student.
- The Chick
- The Cutie: Nicole can easily be a predecessor of Cat Valentine, for her cuteness and bubbly attitude.
- Ditzy Genius: She acts like The Ditz but she's a straight A student and lowering that percentage freaks her out.
- Genki Girl: She's very energetic.
- Hidden Depths: For all her boy-crazed ditziness, she does very well in school and gets straight A's.
- Hormone-Addled Teenager: She's so boy crazy she was diagnosed with "Obsessive Male Gender Disorder."
- Naïve Everygirl: Nicole is an insecure and naive girl who is very dependent on her best friend Zoey, but always keeps her happy-go-lucky attitude.
- Nice Girl: She adores Zoey, and in the first season Zoey is not as close to Dana as she is to Nicole, because Nicole is more open and friendly.
- Put on a Bus: After season 2.
- Put on a Bus to Hell: Nicole is an intensely boy-crazy, insecure kid who hates unfamiliar situations. In one episode, she had broken down sobbing when she thought she'd have to transfer to another school. In the third season premiere it's revealed that Nicole has been shipped to an all-girls boarding school.
- Smarter Than You Look: In one episode of the second season it's revealed that Nicole, of all people, is a straight A student, much to many fans's surprise.

- Undying Loyalty: To Zoey.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Dana.
Portrayed by: Erin Sanders
- Adorkable: A cute geeky girl.

- Also, bringing up her past in beauty pageants.
- Blind Without 'Em: The few times she's seen not wearing glasses it's obvious her vision is not very good.
- Brainy Brunette: She's the smartest girl at PCA.
- Bungling Inventor: Her "Quinnventions" always fail horribly somehow.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Quinn is brilliant and everyone knows it, despite her many personality quirks.
- Butt Monkey: More so in the early seasons. In one episode Quinn didn't take it well when Logan and the others were making fun of her.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Most girls even interacting with Mark was an obvious Berserk Button for her.
- Downplayed later with Logan as it's made apparent that she didn't want him going to the prom with anyone she perceived as a threat.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Big time, she has incredibly weird habits and interests (usually science experiments), to the point of being even gross at times, especially in the first season.
- Ditzy Genius: She's very smart, but doesn't have much in terms of social skills.
- Extraverted Nerd: A rare female example.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Early on the show she was barely tolerated and not even Zoey was too fond of her. It gets better in the last two seasons, when she becomes great friends with Zoey and Lola, as well as their roommate (replacing Nicole).
- Gadgeteer Genius: Sometimes. More often than not, though, her inventions don't seem to work.
- Girliness Upgrade: Starting in season 3.

- What Does She See in Him?: Her crush on Mark didn't seem that strange in early seasons (as Quinn was an Extraverted Nerd Cloudcuckoolander and just as weird as him), but she was still dating him in season 3 and 4. At that point, Quinn was a much more normal and pretty girl who could easily do much better than him.
Portrayed by: Matthew Underwood
- The Ace: Not as much as Zoey, but he's extremely athletic and good at every sport. He's also a fairly good actor and it is revealed in one episode that he is very gifted in chemistry, smart enough to tutor Zoey.
- Attention Whore: He likes to take pictures of himself and autograph them to give out to girls at PCA.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: To some extent with Zoey (they are frenemies or Vitriolic Best Buds and he has a blatant crush on her) and Dana (who was supposed to be his Love Interest before she left the show). At least until season 4, when he starts dating Quinn.
- Book Dumb: Not a good student at all (except in chemistry), but he's frequently shown to be rather street smart.
- Break the Haughty: In the episode ''Logan Gets Cut Off,'' his dad cuts him off from his money, leaving Logan broke.
- Butt Monkey: He often deserves it for being an asshole, but in some episodes he seems just victim of Disproportionate Retribution from his "friends" (with "Zoey's Tutor", "Rumor of Love" and "Anger Management" being some of the most egregious examples.)
- The Chew Toy: As stated above, his anguish is often satisfying due to his generally insufferable behavior. However, there do come times where this trope doesn't hold as much ground.
- Chick Magnet: He's apparently popular with girls and he considers himself sort of a Kid-anova. He also gets an Abhorrent Admirer in later seasons.
- The Dandy: He could be considered a modern version of this.
- Distracted by My Own Sexy
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Big time.Chase: I know she'd never date a jerk like Logan!Lola: He's one of your best friends!Chase: Which is how I know he's a jerk!

- Hidden Depths: He's quite gifted in chemistry.
- It's All About Me: He's extremely self-absorbed and narcissistic.
- Jerkass: Logan is so arrogant and spoiled that not even his friends can stand him most of the time.
- Jerk Jock: A rich, popular, athletic asshole.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He has his share of Pet the Dog moments, but it becomes most obvious in the 4th and final season of the series, especially thanks to his relationship with Quinn.
- Kid-anova: Though, Dustin points out that this is more of an Informed Ability than anything else.Logan: Do I get a lot of girls?Dustin: You TALK about getting a lot of girls.
- Lady Killer In Love: With Quinn in season 4, if we have in mind his past as a serial dater.
- Laser-Guided Karma: He suffers from this constantly.
- Millionaire Playboy: How he sees himself.
- Narcissist: He always checks himself out in the mirror, takes an insane amount of pictures of himself and makes a video so all girls can dance with him. Sounds right.

- Rich Bastard
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: He states outright that he can get away with a lot of things because his dad is rich and donates to the school.

- Smug Snake
- Spoiled Brat: An arrogant spoiled rich kid, due to his wealthy family.

- Token Evil Teammate: Being Chase and Michael's roommate, Logan regularly hangs out with the main group, yet he ends up being the main villain in a high number of episodes.
- Took a Level in Kindness: After he started dating Quinn.
- Upper-Class Twit: Sort of. But he's much more Book Dumb than outright stupid.
- Villain Protagonist: Serves as the main antagonist in a number of episodes.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With EVERYONE.
- With Friends Like These...: He has a very strange relationship with the group, due to him being the Token Evil Teammate and The Friend Nobody Likes.

Portrayed by: Victoria Justice
- Ambiguously Bi: Though she's more the type to just joke about it.Zoey: In love with me? Chase?Lola: (sarcastically) No, me. Marry me, Zoey? Please be my wife?

- The Fashionista: She cools off a little in season 3.
- Flanderization: Lola is introduced in season 2 as an independent, trendy girl with an unique style and personality, as well as an original different hairstyle (and sometimes, different hair color) in every episode. By season 3 her unique style is gone, she's fashionable in a more conventional way, and also has stereotypical personality traits of a boy-crazy shallow girl (more or less replacing Nicole, after the latter is Put on a Bus).
- Genki Girl: Not to the same extent as Nicole, but she's still pretty energetic.
- Goth: Subverted. Zoey and Nicole thought she was, but she was only acting that way as an acting exercise to see if she could pretend to be someone completely different from herself and have people believe it.

- Spicy Latina: To a lesser extent than Dana, but she's snarky enough to qualify.

- To Dana in season 2, as a new roommate for Zoey and Nicole, though, aside from being both Spicy Latinas, they aren't that similar.
- After Nicole is Put on a Bus in season 3, Lola's character assumes more traits of a boy-crazy ditz, becoming more similar to Nicole than to her original character in season 2.
Portrayed by: Austin Butler

- The Generic Guy: Other than being a nice pretty boy, he's not that interesting, especially compared to Chase.

- Perpetual Frowner: Lampshaded. Most of the time he seems unable to smile.

- The Pollyanna: Remains very upbeat despite her Butt Monkey status.That's negativity. And I don't swing that way.
- Recurring Character: In season 3 and 4.
- Replacement Flat Character: Stacey seems to exist so there's still a freaky nerd to pick on after Quinn becomes more normal.
- Speech Impediment: It's gone for the last few minutes of the finale. But back in iCarly and Sam & Cat, explained by her suffering a relapse.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: She eventually gets a boyfriend. See Pair the Spares.

- Romantic False Lead: To Chase, pretty much a textbook example.
- Yandere: She seemed nice at first, but she's later revealed to be an evil and manipulative Clingy Jealous Girl.
Portrayed by: Creagen Dow
- Kid-anova: he's frequently seen impressing girls with his journalism prospects. And he was ready to dump his date for Zoey in the series finale.

Mr. David Bender
Portrayed by: Michael Blieden

- No Indoor Voice: Is always yelling, even on the rare occasion that he's happy.
