The characters from the television series ''{{Series/Zoey 101}}''.


!Main Characters

[[folder:Zoey Brooks]]
-> Portrayed by: Jamie Lynn Spears

* AcademicAthlete: Straight A student and great at every sport.
* TheAce: 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 JackOfAllTrades.
* BigSisterInstinct: She's very protective of Dustin.
* CharacterTitle: The show is named after her.
* CoolBigSis: To Dustin.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes.
* DudeMagnet:
** ZigZaggingTrope. She's actually not much more of a DudeMagnet 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 favour 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.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: 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.
* TheFashionista: She has a good style and fashion sense.
* GoGetterGirl: 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.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: She's a young, pretty, blonde girl who is known for being caring and compassionate towards people.
* TheHeart: She tends to be the mediator and the voice of reason in her group.
* JackOfAllTrades: 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''.
* LastMinuteHookUp: [[spoiler:With Chase in the finale.]]
* TheLeader: Of the level-headed, headstrong ''and'' charismatic type.
** She lampshades it in season 4:
--> '''Lola:''' And you'll fix it?
--> '''Zoey:''' Yes, I'm Zoey. Are you new?
* {{Magnetic Hero}}ine: She's liked by everyone, and her friends and peers often looked to her for advice and guidence.
* MsFanservice
* NewTransferStudent: In the first episode.
* NiceGirl: Almost [[PuritySue too nice to believe.]]
* ObliviousToLove: 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 [[SubvertedTrope 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.
* OfficialCouple: With Chase.
* OnlySaneWoman: 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).
* PinkMeansFeminine: She loves that color and owns a lot of pink things.
* PluckyGirl: She never gives up.
* TeamMom: Definitely acts like a motherly figure to everyone, especially her little brother, Dustin.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Inverted. She's mostly a very fashionable and feminine girl with girly interests, however she's still [[TheAce Zoey]], so the writers made her good at everything, incuding sports.
* YouGoGirl: 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.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Chase. [[spoiler: They do.]]

[[folder:Dustin Brooks]]
-> Portrayed by: Paul Butcher

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Sometimes, when he needs his sister to get him out of trouble.
* TheArtifact: As of season 3. It's not clear why he was still in the opening credits (and always billed ''[[BillingDisplacement second]]'' after Zoey, due to being first alphabetically by last name).
* BrattyHalfPint: Sometimes. Very much so in the last episode "Chasing Zoey".
* ChildProdigy: He shares an 8th grade geometry class with his elder sister.
* TheLoad: Sometimes.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Feminine Boy to Trisha's Masculine Girl.
* OutOfFocus: He barely appeared in the last two seasons.
* TagalongKid: The only kid in the main cast, and frequently hangs out with Zoey and her friends.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: He's smart for his age.

[[folder:Chase Matthews]]
-> Portrayed by: Sean Flynn

* {{Adorkable}}: For being a dorky, clumsy but lovable NiceGuy, to the point that even Lola falls for him in one episode.
* BackForTheFinale: In the last episode and in a rather touching way.
* CannotSpitItOut: 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 PutOnABus to England.
* ChickMagnet: Thanks to his adorkable-ness, he is not so bad in this department (Melissa, Lola, Rebecca, Gretchen, and eventually Zoey).
* DeadpanSnarker: 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.
* DistractedByTheSexy: He crashes into a flagpole on his bike due to staring at Zoey.
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Bartholemew.
* FunnyAfro: 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!"
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Michael.
* ICantDance: And well aware of it.
* JustFriends: with Zoey in Season 3, after he has convinced everyone (including himself) that he's over his crush.
* TheKlutz: 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.
* TheLancer: to Zoey, and occasionally Logan.
* LoveAtFirstSight: With Zoey.
* LoveMakesYouDumb: Several times, mainly in Season 1
* MeaningfulName: Chase (as in 'pursuit'). Came in handy for naming the series finale TV movie "Chasing Zoey" ("Chase"-ing Zoey, Chase 'n Zoey).
* NiceGuy: A very sweet natured, loyal, and honest person, and he gets along with everyone in the group.
* NiceJewishBoy
* OfficialCouple: With Zoey.
* OnlySaneMan: He constantly falls into this, something that is obviously not very difficult when your competition is Logan and Michael.
* PutOnABus: To England, in the last season.
* RunningGag:
** 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.
* SingleTargetSexuality: He had other girlfriends at some point, but his heart was always with Zoey.
* StalkerWithACrush: 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.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Zoey.

[[folder:Dana Cruz]]
-> Portrayed by: Kristin Herrera

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Though her surname implies that she is Latina.
* DeadpanSnarker: Out of all characters, Dana definitely wins the snarking trophy, even though she only appears in the first season.
* HotBlooded: She can be aggressive at times.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: As arrogant and sarcastic as she is, she's still a good friend to Zoey and the rest of the group.
* PassionateSportsGirl: She is into sports and enjoys skateboarding.
* PutOnABus: After season 1.
* ShipTease: With Logan. According to Schneider, she was Logan's original love interest. However, something changed and he made Quinn and Logan end up together.
* SpicyLatina: Mostly implied because of her surname and confrontational attitude.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Though we never really see the sugar part that often, due to her being PutOnABus too soon.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Nicole's Girly Girl.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Nicole.
* YouGoGirl: Along with Zoey, she is one of the first girls on the PCA Basketball Team.

[[folder:Michael Barrett]]
-> Portrayed by: Christopher Massey

* AmbiguouslyBi: He's described guys as hot before.
-->'''Logan:''' Why do you waste your time with the drama club? Why don't you go up for the football team or something?
-->'''Chase:''' Because the drama club is loaded with hot girls, and I've seen the football team. They're not hot.
-->'''Michael:''' I don't know, man, Dave the quarterback's a pretty handsome dude.
-->''(Chase and Logan look at Michael oddly.)''
-->'''Michael:''' I've said too much.
* BetaCouple: With Lisa.
* TheBigGuy
* BlackBestFriend: To Chase and Logan, especially the former.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Not as much as Quinn, but he's still a bit eccentric.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Chase.
* LargeHam: He can be very dramatic when he wants to.
* LovableJock: A natural athlete and NiceGuy, in contrast to Logan's JerkJock.
* LoveMakesYouDumb: In "Michael Likes Lisa."
* NiceGuy: Always a loyal friend to everyone, no matter what.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Sensitive Guy to Logan's Manly Man.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Chase and Zoey.
* TokenMinority: The only black person in the main cast.
* TokenMinorityCouple: With Lisa, another black girl, in later episodes.
* WackyGuy

[[folder:Nicole Bristow]]
-> Portrayed by: Alexa Nikolas

* AmbiguouslyBi: 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.
* BrainlessBeauty: Downplayed, she's flighty and shallow, but apparently a good student.
* TheChick
* TheCutie: Nicole can easily be a predecessor of [[{{Victorious}} Cat Valentine]], for her cuteness and bubbly attitude.
* DitzyGenius: She acts like TheDitz but she's a straight A student and lowering that percentage freaks her out.
* GenkiGirl: She's very energetic.
* HiddenDepths: For all her boy-crazed [[TheDitz ditziness]], she does very well in school and gets straight A's.
* HormoneAddledTeenager: She's so boy crazy she was diagnosed with "Obsessive Male Gender Disorder."
* NaiveEverygirl: Nicole is an insecure and naive girl who is very dependent on her best friend Zoey, but always keeps her happy-go-lucky attitude.
* NiceGirl: 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.
* PutOnABus: After season 2.
* PutOnABusToHell: 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.
* SmarterThanYouLook: In one episode of the second season it's revealed that Nicole, [[TheDitz of all people]], is a straight A student, much to many fans's surprise.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Dana's Tomboy.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Zoey.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Dana.

[[folder:Quinn Pensky]]
-> Portrayed by: Erin Sanders

* {{Adorkable}}: A cute geeky girl.
* BerserkButton: Calling Quinn a spazz is a bad idea.
** Also, bringing up [[OldShame her past in beauty pageants]].
* BlindWithoutEm: The few times she's seen not wearing glasses it's obvious her vision is not very good.
* BrainyBrunette: She's the smartest girl at PCA.
* BunglingInventor: Her "Quinnventions" always [[EpicFail fail horribly]] somehow.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Quinn is brilliant and everyone knows it, despite her many personality quirks.
* ButtMonkey: 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.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Most girls even interacting with Mark was an obvious BerserkButton 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.
* DitzyGenius: She's very smart, but doesn't have much in terms of social skills.
* ExtravertedNerd: A rare female example.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: 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).
* GadgeteerGenius: Sometimes. More often than not, though, her inventions don't seem to work.
* GirlinessUpgrade: Starting in season 3.
* HollywoodNerd: Quinn is supposed to be a freaky, unattractive nerd (especially in early seasons) but she's actually very pretty and even gets a [[FanServicePack makeover]] later on in the show.
* MadScientist: She is obsessed with her "Quinnventions".
* {{Meganekko}}: To the point where Logan actually puts her glasses back on her before their first kiss.
* OppositesAttract: With Logan.
* RunningGag: Her "Quinnventions" going horribly wrong.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: She often indulges in this.
* SheCleansUpNicely: In later seasons.
* TheSmartGirl
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Just ask Otis.
-->'''Nicole:''' Quinn speaks alpaca?
-->'''Zoey:''' And you're surprised?
* TeenGenius: She has an IQ of 177.
* TVGenius: Particularly in early seasons, with her extreme ExtravertedNerd and MadScientist tendencies.
* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Her crush on Mark didn't seem that strange in early seasons (as Quinn was an ExtravertedNerd {{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.

[[folder:Logan Reese]]
-> Portrayed by: Matthew Underwood

* TheAce: Not as much as [[MarySue 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''.
* AssholeVictim: The fact that he's an insufferable {{Jerkass}} makes almost any retribution he receives in the end of most episodes very satisfying.
* AttentionWhore: He likes to take pictures of himself and autograph them to give out to girls at PCA.
* BelligerentSexualTension: To some extent with Zoey (they are frenemies or VitriolicBestBuds and he has a blatant crush on her) and Dana (who was supposed to be his LoveInterest before she left the show). At least until season 4, when he starts dating Quinn.
* BookDumb: Not a good student at all ([[HiddenDepths except in chemistry]]), but he's frequently shown to be rather street smart.
* BreakTheHaughty: In the episode [[BrokeEpisode ''Logan Gets Cut Off,'']] his dad cuts him off from his money, leaving Logan broke.
* ButtMonkey: He often deserves it for being an asshole, but in some episodes he seems just victim of DisproportionateRetribution from his [[WithFriendsLikeThese "friends"]] (with "Zoey's Tutor", "Rumor of Love" and "Anger Management" [[WhatTheHellHero being some of the most egregious examples.]])
* TheChewToy: As stated above, his anguish is often satisfying due to his [[AssholeVictim generally insufferable behavior.]] However, there do [[DesignatedVillain come times]] [[DisproportionateRetribution where this trope]] [[WhatTheHellHero doesn't hold as much ground.]]
* ChickMagnet: He's apparently popular with girls and he considers himself sort of a KidAnova. He also gets an AbhorrentAdmirer in later seasons.
* TheDandy: He could be considered a modern version of this.
* DistractedByMyOwnSexy
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: 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!
* HandsomeLech: Proud of his good looks and constantly flirts with many girls.
* HiddenDepths: He's quite gifted in chemistry.
* ItsAllAboutMe: 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.
* JerkJock: A rich, popular, athletic asshole.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He has his share of PetTheDog moments, but it becomes most obvious in the 4th and final season of the series, [[LoveRedeems especially thanks to his relationship with Quinn.]]
* KidAnova: Though, Dustin points out that this is more of an InformedAbility than anything else.
--> '''Logan''': Do I get a lot of girls?
-->'''Dustin''': You TALK about getting a lot of girls.
* LadyKillerInLove: With Quinn in season 4, if we have in mind his past as a serial dater.
* LaserGuidedKarma: He suffers from this constantly.
* MillionairePlayboy: 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.
* OppositesAttract: With Quinn.
* RichBastard
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: He states outright that he can get away with a lot of things because his dad is rich and donates to the school.
* SecondLove: To Quinn.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Manly Man to Michael's Sensitive Guy.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Not nearly as cool and good looking as he thinks.
* SmugSnake
* SpoiledBrat: An arrogant spoiled rich kid, due to his wealthy family.
* StrawMisogynist: Very sexist towards women.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Being Chase and Michael's roommate, Logan regularly hangs out with the main group, yet he ends up being the [[VillainProtagonist main villain in a high number of episodes.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: After he started dating Quinn.
* VillainProtagonist: Serves as the main antagonist in a number of episodes.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With EVERYONE.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: He has a ''very'' strange relationship with the group, due to him being the TokenEvilTeammate and TheFriendNobodyLikes. And while Logan is often a jerk to his friends, they aren't exactly kind to him either, often [[DisproportionateRetribution going a bit too far on their payback for Logan's jerkish behaviour]].

[[folder:Lola Martinez]]
-> Portrayed by: VictoriaJustice

* AmbiguouslyBi: 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?
** She also has quite a bit of LesYay with Quinn and Zoey.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: However, her surname implies that she is Latina, and she has said some Spanish phrases, such as ''"Dios mio,"'' on occasion.
* AttractiveBentGender: Steve. Even Nicole finds "him" attractive.
* BetaCouple: With Vince.
* TheChick: Sometimes, like in ''The Radio:''
-->'''Lola:''' Okay, we have to decide who gets the radio before this ruins ''all'' of our friendships!
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Sometimes.
-->'''Lola''': Do you think a duck would make a good pet?
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes, mostly towards [[TheDitz Nicole]] or [[{{Jerkass}} Logan.]]
* DudeMagnet: A lot of male characters bring up how "hot" and "beautiful" she is, including Michael (in the episode "Lola Likes Chase") and Logan. Also, according to Dustin, all the guys in his year have a crush on Lola and think she is hot.
* TheFashionista: 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 colour) 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 PutOnABus).
* GenkiGirl: 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.
* GuileHeroine: She's not above using ThePowerOfActing to get what she wants.
* HiddenDepths: She loves reading {{Shakespeare}}, and {{Hamlet}} is her second favorite play. (Her first favorite is TheImportanceOfBeingEarnest.)
* MsFanservice: She's prone to showing lots of skin.
* NewTransferStudent: In season 2.
* PluckyGirl
* ThePowerOfActing
* SpicyLatina: To a lesser extent than Dana, but she's snarky enough to qualify.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute:
** To Dana in season 2, as a new roommate for Zoey and Nicole, though, aside from being both {{Spicy Latina}}s, they aren't that similar.
** After Nicole is PutOnABus 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.

[[folder:James Garrett]]
-> Portrayed by: Austin Butler

* ChickMagnet: In his first appearance he manages to attract all the female students at PCA, including Zoey, Lola, and Quinn.
* TheGenericGuy: Other than being a nice pretty boy, he's not that interesting, especially compared to Chase.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: He truly loves Zoey and proved it the series finale. Not only did he give her a gold necklace confessing his love for her, but he let her keep it after they broke up. He even gave her one final kiss before he left her dorm.
* NewTransferStudent: In season 4.
* NiceGuy: Friendly to the group, and a nice boyfriend to Zoey.
* OnlySaneMan: Much like Chase, as he appears to be the sane one out of the three male characters.
* PrettyBoy: A blonde, blue-eyed pretty boy.
* RomanticFalseLead: To Zoey, in season 4. Until Chase comes back, obviously.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: To Chase.

* LastNameBasis: Quinn is usually the only one who calls him Mark. He's usually referred to as "Del Figgalo" by everyone else.

* PerpetualFrowner: Lampshaded. Most of the time he seems unable to smile.

!!Rebecca Martin
-> Portrayed by: DaniellaMonet

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Has Chase (and for a much shorter duration, the audience) believing that she's [[NiceGirl your typical hometown sweetheart.]] It's eventually revealed that she's a highly possessive ControlFreak and consummate {{Yandere}} who'll shed any pretense of kindness the second things stop going her way.

* DerailingLoveInterests: To make Zoey look better.
* {{Jerkass}}: Of the possessive girlfriend variety.

* RomanticFalseLead: To Chase, pretty much a textbook example.
* {{Yandere}}: She seemed nice at first, but she's later revealed to be an evil and manipulative ClingyJealousGirl.

!! Jeremiah Trottman
-> Portrayed by: Creagen Dow

* KidAnova: he's frequently seen impressing girls with his journalism prospects. And he was ready to dump his date for Zoey in the series finale.

* EasilyForgiven: By Lola at least.
* HeelFaceTurn: He goes from a violent JerkJock in season 3 to a reformed NiceGuy in season 4.
* JerkJock: In his first appearance, before his HeelFaceTurn.

!!Mr. David Bender

* CoolTeacher

!!Coach Keller

* ItsPronouncedTropay: He pronounces sushi as sush-ee (rhymes with slushie).
* {{Jerkass}}: Oh so much. Not only does he push students to exhaustion in his gym class, but he made Chase and Michael's lives Hell when Sushi Rox burned down, despite it not being their fault.
* NoIndoorVoice: Is always yelling, even on the rare occasion that he's happy.
