The Main Six
- Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: Caitlin is the Beauty, Jen the Brains, and Nikki the Brawn.
- Brutal Honesty: They tend not to pull punches when stating their opinions. The only exception is Caitlin, who's generally too nice to count.
- Butt-Monkey: Not a single episode goes by without one or more of them suffering from some form of slapstick. And that includes the girls.
- Childhood Friends: Except for Caitlin (who didn't became part of the group until the pilot episode), the gang has known each other since they were in kindergarten.
- Everyone Has Standards: They admit to occasionally pocketing free things from the places where they work (small things, like pencils, napkins, and argyle socks), but they're all shocked when Jen steals an expensive jacket from the Penalty Box.
- Five-Token Band: A Hispanic boy, a white Jewish boy, a black boy, a white girl, a Caucasian girl, and an Asian girl.
- Freudian Trio:
- Among the guys, Jonesy is the impulsive Id, Wyatt the overly cautious Superego, and Jude the laid back Ego.
- Among the girls, Caitlin is the emotional Id, Jen the overbearing Superego, and Nikki the no-nonsense Ego.
- Naughty Is Good: In general, they tend to be mischievous and sometimes thoughtless, but ultimately good-hearted. They often cause trouble with their various Zany Schemes and find themselves butting heads with authority figures (usually Ron the Rent-a-Cop), but never really mean any harm.
- New Job as the Plot Demands:
- Jude begins the series working at Stick It until Ron the Rent-a-Cop shuts him down for numerous health code violations, then works for Wayne at Underground Video, then works as a Zamboni driver for the mall skating rink, and finally works at the Gameatorium until the end.
- Wyatt begins at Spin This until he is fired by his ex-girlfriend Serena, then works for Wayne at Underground Video until spilling coffee on a rare cassette, and finally works at Burger McFlipsters for the rest of the series. Ironically, Wayne would subsequently join Wyatt at Burger McFlipsters after he closes Underground Video.
- Jonesy has a new job in almost every episode, and most of the time it's relevant to its plot in some fashion. And then the fallout of whatever antics he and the gang have gotten themselves into usually involve him getting fired.
- Nikki stays at the Khaki Barn for most of the series run; however, she temporarily works at Stereo Shack in "Welcome to the Darth Side" and Counter Measures in "Quit It", only to be rehired by Chrissy at the KB by the end of each episode. Nikki quits her job at the Barn for good in the series, after she and her parents end up moving away.
- Caitlin temporarily takes a second job at a chocolate store to earn extra income in "Girlie Boys", but leaves when she gained extra pounds when she could finally afford the jeans she was saving for. Also, Caitlin quits the Big Squeeze in "Losing Your Lemon" after she pays off her credit card debt; however, she reclaims her job when Tricia and her group of doppelgangers take over the main group's regular table, and Caitlin was starting to slip back to her old overspending ways, which led her into needing to get a job in the first place.
- At the beginning of the series, Jen leaves the Big Squeeze to work at the Penalty Box, where she stays for the entire series.
- Not So Above It All: They each take turns trying to play off whatever fad the other members happen to be interested in at the time, only for it to be revealed that they're just as into it as the rest of them. Special mention goes to Nikki in "The Girls in the Band," when she spends most of the episode pretending to be disinterested in Caitlin and Jen's favorite Boy Band, Dawg Toy, but is eventually exposed as having an arguably bigger obsession with them than her friends.
- Once an Episode: Jonesy gets (and loses) a new job, and Caitlin falls in (and out of) love with a new boy.
- Town Girls: Caitlin is the Femme, Nikki is the Butch, and Jen is Neither.
- True Companions: They're close enough to be a mini-family of their own and always have each others' backs.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With their clashing personalities, there's not a day when they don't drive each other crazy. But if one member of the gang is really in trouble, the other five won't even hesitate to help them out.
- Zany Scheme: Many episodes revolve around them coming up with one of these to get out of work, get free food, make more money, impress a date, etc.
Codename: Coffee Pot.
Relationship Status: I'm still waiting for the perfect girl.
Jobs: Spin This (Country Music Section), Underground Video and Burger McFlipsters
Interests: Singing, songwriting, playing guitar, poetry the Mighty Weasels, the Jumping Snails (their lyrics are genius!)
Favorite Quotations: "A song I wrote:
My friends will always be around
If they sold coolness by the pound
They'd all be stinkin' rich
Stayin' at Ritz
Guaranteed to get you hoppin'
Need some clothes? They'll take you shoppin'
Or hang out just like this
Wyatt's the true definition of an old soul. He sees house parties and making out in the movie theatre as strictly "for the cretins." He'd much rather do something cultural. He doesn't mind being different or uncool. He knows his day will come in a few years, when he's in college he'll be the man. Wyatt can play any song on request on his guitar. Wyatt's more well read than his pals, and since he's the 'smart' one, he should know better than to get involved in Jonesy's schemes. But, unfortunately, he's easily talked into anything Jonesy proposes because deep down he totally admires him. Wyatt works at the mall's music store in worst section possible: country music. He doesn't mind all that much, though, because he's totally crushing on his boss, Serena... who's 18! He doesn't love his job but at least he gets discounts on new releases.
Wyatt is the typical "nice guy". He has trouble talking to women he finds himself attracted to without the assistance of his friends, and believes in luck.
Wyatt is dependent on coffee, and is easily irritated without caffeine in his system. Wyatt also likes to eat sushi even though his friends are disgusted by it. He is also acrophobic (scared of heights) as shown in The Swami episode.
- Alliterative Name: His first and last names both start with "W."
- Amicable Exes: With Marlowe.
- Black and Nerdy: He is well-informed in the areas of history and science.
- Birds of a Feather: With Marlowe.
- Birthday Party Goes Wrong: Wyatt hates having birthday parties, because of his parents' insistence that they be themed, and the theme is usually cringeworthy (such as a redneck/trailer park-themed party). In "The Birthday Boy", the rest of the group attempt to co-opt someone's bridal shower as Wyatt's birthday party.
- Bookworm: Among his friends, he's the most well-read.
- Butt-Monkey: Comes with being the Only Sane Man in a sitcom.
- Curtains Match the Window: Matching brown hair and eyes.
- Deadpan Snarker: Especially towards Jonesy.
- Dogged Nice Guy: He got dumped by Serena via text message.
- Fanboy: Wyatt is a fan of the bands Simple Plan, Radiohead, and Mighty Weasels.
- Jerkass Ball: Although Wyatt is usually a nice, easygoing guy, in "Idol Time at the Mall", when none of his friends show up to watch him perform his new song for various reasons (or in Nikki's case, was asleep the whole time), he instead writes and performs a different song about how much he hates them, which in turn gets them hated by everyone else at the mall. He eventually realizes that he's gone too far and makes it up to them by performing the original song about their friendship, which allows them to forgive him.
- Last Girl Wins: Kylie Smiley, although he does have to wait 5 years per her dad's conditions.
- Love Hurts: His break up with Serena in "Going Underground."
- Multicolored Hair: The most downplayed example possible. His dreadlocks are black and brown.
- Must Have Caffeine: He's usually seen with a coffee from Grind Me.
- Neat Freak: One episode involved the guys trying to get him to loosen up.
- Nice Guy: Wyatt is sweet, polite, and even-tempered.
- Only Sane Man: Literally the most normal guy of the gang.
- Rule 63: One-shot girlfriend Lacey in "Quit It" starts off by having a few things in common with Wyatt; however, she progressively becomes an eerily-exact female copy of him, with the same hairstyle, clothes, and guitar. Even the gang confuses her for Wyatt at one point.
- Second Love: Marlowe.
- The Spock: The most rational one of the three guys.
Codename: Nose Ring.
Relationship Status: It's Complicated.
Jobs: I sell hideous, preppy clothes at Tacky Barn. Oops, I mean Khaki Barn.
Interests: Individuality, Going against the grain. Thinking outside the box. Independent film. Rebellious rockers. Cargo pants.
Favorite Quotations: "Let me think about it. No."
Nikki's a total original with a punk rock edge. She hates everything about "The Clones", the girls she works with at the Khaki Barn who look alike, dress alike and talk alike—but most of all she hates that she's stuck working with them. She wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything sold at The Khaki Barn, and she's not easily sucked into trends. Nikki's plan is to graduate and travel the world, then settle down someplace far away from a suburban mall. Nikki's the reality check for all of her friends, especially Jonesy, but sometimes she just can't decide if she loves him or hates him.
Nikki can be grumpy and she is usually the most sensible among her friends, and is highly individualistic, which puts her at odds with the Khaki Barn's rules and regulations, as the store's philosophy states that individualism is overrated. Often, she will skip out on her duties at work and criticize others for their lack of personal style. Due to corporate brainwashing, she briefly started acting like the Clones after being declared Employee of the Month, but promptly reverted to her former self with the help of her friends. She is also very smart. She dreams of becoming a travel writer. Moves to Iqaluit, Nunavut in the Season 4 Grand Finale, though she still plans to keep in touch with her friends and keeps her relationship with Jonesy intact.
- Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Nikki finds her parents embarrassing, partly because they wear clothes from the 1970s.
- Ambidextrous Sprite: Her bracelet sometimes switches wrists.
- Badass Adorable: She's the smallest, most petite member of the gang, but threaten her, or her friends, then may god have mercy on your soul.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Jonesy.
- The Big Girl: Class 5. She's by far the most aggressive and antagonistic of the group towards others, and pretty tough to boot.
- Boobs of Steel: Fittingly, the toughest member of the group has the most pronounced chest.
- Breakout Character: While all six of the main characters have their respective fanbases, Nikki's arguably the most popular of the main six.
- Brutal Honesty: Depends on the situation. While she won't hold back when talking to people she doesn't like (or if she's in a bad mood), she'll usually maintain at least some tact when her friends are involved.
- Childhood Friend Romance: With Jonesy—as mentioned in his entry, they've known each other since Kindergarten and it was mentioned in an early episode that Jonesy's had romantic feelings for Nikki since 9th-grade.
- Cute Bruiser: She can easily beat most people in a fight, and is pretty attractive as well.
- Deadpan Snarker: By far the most sarcastic member of the group.
- Emo Teen: Dark purple hair, piercings, snarky and cynical attitude.
- Girliness Upgrade: A temporary one in "Employee of the Month", when she gets brainwashed into giving herself a girly makeover and acting like the Clones.
- Girls Love Chocolate: Only when she's on her period.
- Grumpy Bear: Prone to acting rather pessimistic.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: The Tiny Girl to Jonesy's Huge Guy.
- Interchangeable Asian Cultures: She seems to be Chinese because of her last name Wong, however her phone has a Japanese flag symbol on it.
- Irony: Nikki is a tomboy who wears grungy clothes, dyes her hair, has facial piercings and hates everything girly. She works at the Khaki Barn, the girliest fashion store in the mall.
- Jerkass: Not a very pleasant person. However...
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She can be rough, abrasive and brutally honest (especially towards Caitlin), but she really does care about her friends.
- Multi-Ethnic Name: Her surname is Chinese, and her first name is French.
- Only Sane Woman: She's usually the one among the main six with the most common sense, aside from Wyatt.
- The Quincy Punk: Definitely has the style of one.
- She Cleans Up Nicely: Nikki's already quite lovely in her grungy outfit, but in the rare times she wears more formal attire, she looks beautiful!
- Shipper on Deck: For Darth/Julie in "Welcome to the Darth Side," but only to get Darth to stop hitting on her.
- The Slacker: Doesn't help at all that she hates her job.
- Slap-Slap-Kiss: With Jonesy.
- The Snark Knight: Spends a good majority of her time being scathingly deadpan and rude, but is still a good person to say the least.
- Sneeze of Doom: "The Girls in the Band."
- Surrounded by Idiots: How she views the Clones. She's not too far off, although Chrissy at least is smarter than Nikki gives her credit for.
- Teens Are Short: She is the shortest of the main six—the top of her head just barely comes up to Jonesy's shoulders.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: She's given her fair share of them. Perhaps most notably in the finale she makes a scene at the Khaki Barn where she openly decries everything her employers stand for in front of the customers, telling off Chrissy and the other clones before declaring that she finally quits.
- Tomboy: She's more into rock music and doesn't like the color pink or most girly-related things.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She was a closet fan of boy band, Dawg Toy. After Jen and Caitlin found out, Nikki has been more open about liking the group.
- Tomboyish Name: Uses the boyish spelling of "Nikki", which is short for Nicole.
- Tsundere: Type A. Becomes more Dere whenever she has PMS.
- Tsurime Eyes: Emphasized by her purple eyelashes.
- Ultimate Job Security: Despite being a lazy, apathetic employee, Chrissy lets Nikki keep her job at the Khaki Barn because her terrible work ethic makes the Clones look better in comparison. In one episode, when Nikki actually is fired and replaced by a more competent employee, said employee turns out to be so good at her job that she ends up lowering the Clones' commissions, which prompts them to fire her and hire Nikki again.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has dyed purple hair.
Codename: Hang Ten.
Relationship Status: singin' and minglin' with the dudettes!
Jobs: Stick-It kebab-master, zamboni driver (keepin' it chill, bro), Underground Video video-master.
Interests: skateboarding, fountain diving, my skateboard Sally, hockey, the Mighty Weasels
Favorite Quotations: "eternity is just a state of mind." "the best glimpse of paradise is in that second before you bail." "life is like a skateboard park, and the dudes and chicks are merely skaters."
Jude is into living life large. If it's extreme, he's done it or it's on his to-do list. He's always positive and mellow and his laid-back attitude is totally contagious, the perfect combo of cool, sweet and strangely confident. Jude has a super-short attention span and he'll often check out of a conversation because he's bored. The only things he takes seriously are his friends, skateboarding and his job at Stick It, where you can get different food on a stick every day. He's pretty certain this was the job he was born to have, and he doesn't want to mess it up. For some reason, Jude is the one who everyone trusts with their secrets...even though he's not very good at keeping them.
Jude is easily excited and unpredictable. On the surface, he does not appear to take anything seriously, but finds unique ways of dealing with everyday problems. He tends to approach things at a slow, suitable pace, and gives names to inanimate objects that he cherishes, such as his skateboard, "Sally". Jonesy describes him as one who "takes weird to a whole new level".
While speaking to people, Jude usually addresses them as "dude" or "bro" in reference to males, and "dudette" or "bra" in reference to females or calling everyone as a whole "dudes". He exhibits Type B personality.
- Attractive Bent-Gender: Jonesy has more than once (unknowingly) hit on Jude when the latter disguises himself as a girl.
- Beyond the Impossible: He can get a tan from the mall's florescent lights. His explanation: "The key to a good va-cay is all in the mind." Nikki shouted how impossible this was but the tan was there so there wasn't much she could do about it.
- Book Dumb: He's not a particularly good student, and was on the verge of failing all of his classes at one point in time.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Prone to doing some rather...Bizarre things.
- Companion Cube: He has a habit of getting attached to random objects, like Betty the massage chair.
- Empathy Pet: For the episode where he had a pet goldfish, they were just as calm and cool.
- Erudite Stoner: He's like a teenaged version of The Dude.
- Extreme Omnivore: Thanks to his chill nature, Jude doesn't really care about what he's eating. He once ate a gumball that got stuck in the wheels of his skateboard.
- Gasshole: The worst offender in the series.
- G-Rated Drug:
- He becomes addicted to coffee more so than Wyatt when he became obsessed with winning something from Grind Me's contest in "Smarten Up". He eventually wins; however, the prize he won was a year's worth of free coffee.
- In "Over Exposed", he is addicted to Burger McFlipster's Ragin' Cajun fries to the point where he eats old fries out of the trash can.
- The special reunion "Vote, Dude!" doesn't try to hide the fact he was probably smoking pot inside the lemonade stand (we only see smoke coming out when he opens the roof, though).
- Groin Attack: He has been hit, punched or kicked in the crotch more than any other male character on the show.
- Has a Type: He seems to have a thing for brunettes and redheads (although it's also implied that he and Caitlin have feelings for each other).
- The Heart: The least likely of the group to cause conflict, by far one of the friendliest, and an overall good person who seems to do a good job of keeping the group together.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Jonesy.
- Informed Judaism: He and his family are Jewish, as he indicates in "How the Rent-A-Cop Stole Christmas" that they celebrate Hanukkah. It was revealed in "Bicker Me Not" that Jude's grandparents "were political rebels that went into hiding." This suggests that they lived during the Holocaust, since Jude's said to be of Polish descent.
- The Kirk: He's somewhat more rational and a lot more laid back than Jonesy but still a lot more impulsive than Wyatt.
- Love Hurts:
- His eventual Star-Crossed Lovers relationship with Starr.
- Also, when he finds out that his mysterious Australian caller got back together with her ex-boyfriend.
- Meaningful Name: Coincidentally, "Jude" is the German word for "Jew," and Jude's presumably Jewish.
- Nice Hat: His toque.
- The Pig-Pen: Jude has very poor hygiene habits—he actually once went two weeks without bathing of any kind. He never smells too bad, however, which Jude claims is due to something he calls the "Stink Cycle." Nikki also claims that Jude never bathed much to begin with ("He's always had a faint lingering odor").
- Rousing Speech: He has given them from time to time.
- Surfer Dude: A "Skater Dude" variant, but he does like surfing.
- Sue Donym: Has a handful of disguises that pop up the series every now and then.
- Verbal Tic: "Dude" and either "Bro" for guys and "Brah" for girls.
Codename: Gym Sock.
Relationship Status: Sigh. Single.
Jobs: "Assistant Coach" (sales associate) at the Penalty Box sporting goods store.
Interests: Snowboarding, Soccer, Shopping, Making Itineraries, DawgToy.
Favorite Quotations: "Oh, I have the touch! I've turned off TONS of guys before!"
Jen's a super-sweet, responsible, determined girl who just happens to be a total tomboy. Jen's known for her ability to beat almost any guy in almost any sport and she's destined to become an Olympic snowboarding champ one day. Jen's the planner of the group and her sports experience makes her a natural born leader and coach. She's quick to offer tips to her pals...even when they don't ask for them. One person who does look up to Jen and takes her advice very seriously is Caitlin, who just happens to be training to fill Jen's old gig at The Big Squeeze.
Jen had a crush on Jonesy in the 7th grade, and she had also dreamed about the two of them kissing. This was revealed in the episode "The Journal". However, this has changed now that the two of them are step-siblings (and the fact that he's dating Nikki). Because she works at a place that sell sports equipment and has an interest in sports (mainly soccer and snowboarding), Ron the "Rent-a-Cop" gave her the nickname "Gym Sock".
Jen is responsible, admirable, and committed. She enjoys sports, fantasizing about attractive boys, and planning for the future, but is also prone to nosiness and has a quick temper, traits which have led her friends to regard her as a control freak.
- Academic Athlete: Jen's a top athlete at her school, and it's mentioned that she's a straight-A student as well.
- All Work vs. All Play: The All Work to her friends' All Play. When they tried to convince her to take a day off from work to hang out at the mall's amusement park, she refused so adamantly that they had to concoct a Zany Scheme that involved pretending to be paramedics and literally dragging her out of the Penalty Box while strapped down to a hospital gurney.
- Belly Dancer: Jen at one point disguised herself as one of the belly dancers of Taj Mahome Video.
- Butt-Monkey: A thoroughly beleaguered employee and frequently exposed (in more ways than one).
- Control Freak: She drives her friends crazy by giving them unwanted advice, and once planned out an entire itinerary of rides during a trip to the mall's amusement park.Jude: (imitating Jen with a sock puppet) "Hey, Caitlin! Can I give you some advice? 'Cause I'm Jen, and I like to boss everyone around!"
- Cool Big Sis: Though her methods don't always work out.
- Dude Magnet: A fair share of boys have flirted with her.
- Drives Like Crazy: Jen once drove a mall's display car into the fountain.
- Flirty Stepsiblings: With Jonesy sometimes.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The responsible to Courtney and their stepbrothers' foolish.
- Full-Frontal Assault: Jen had been caught topless at least three times, much to her embarrassment.
- Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Mixed with True Blue Femininity, her hoodie has a bluish-purple color.
- In the Hood: Sometimes pulls up her hood and hides her face in it when embarrassed.
- Jerkass Ball: Not terribly often, but she has her moments. In "The Fake Dade" she was seen not being very nice to Jude when he agreed to be her fake date to get another boy's attention. And she was awfully mean to everyone in "The Wedding Destroyers", to a point where even Nikki told her off on behalf of her callousness.
- Ms. Fanservice: Leggy, beautiful, and often shows a fair amount of skin.
- Moment of Weakness: In the opening episode, after dealing with the inexperienced Caitlain's multiple errors, Jen finally snaps at Caitlain and screams at her over her multiple errors. Coach Halder reveals he overheard the outburst and comes extremely close to firing her before Caitlain intervenes.
- Nice Girl: While she can get bossy, sexist and nosy at times, Jen's still really nice and deeply cares about her friends and family.
- Naked People Are Funny: Not often, but crops up in a few episodes.
- Only Sane Woman: Shares this role with Nikki and occasionally Wyatt.
- Passionate Sports Girl: One of the reasons why Jen took a job at a sporting goods store. She also stated it is her dream to compete in the Olympics at snowboarding.
- Rage Breaking Point: When Halder and his son were repeatedly using Jen as a target for paintball practice, she finally snaps and goes military commando on the both of them.
- Secret Diary: Jen keeps a journal about herself and her friends. Unfortunately, it was misplaced and taken to the mall's Lost and Found. Even more unfortunately, Caitlin, Nikki, Jonesy, and Wyatt read it out loud, unknowingly in front of a large crowd of witnesses.
- Shower of Awkward: More than once.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Prior to Caitlin's introduction to the group, Jen was the Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak to Nikki's straight up tomboy. She's really into sports and wants to take up a career in sports, but also enjoys girly things like fashion, shopping and boy bands. Unlike most examples of this trope, however, Jen is more transparent about her girliness.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Jen tends to pull these on others since she's the more sensible one.
- She calls out Caitlin after witnessing her going on a date with a guy that Nikki had claim on. What was worse was that while Caitlin was on her date, Nikki was waiting for her own date with the same guy, that Caitlin lied about setting up for her.
- When Caitlin basically forced Jen into doing something she doesn't want so she could further herself with a new guy. Even after promising Jen it won't happen again, she breaks it no less than three times just so she could selfishly get alone time with her new beau. Jen finally gets angry when she found out in the end, Caitlyn dumps the guy for an incredibly trivial reason, thereby making all the sacrifices she forced Jen to make all for naught. Although, Jen gets revenge by revealing she had splurged all of Caitlyn's money for ditching her.
- Jen gets angry at Caitlin, Nikki, Jonesy, and Wyatt for not only reading her journal, but for reading it out loud in the middle of the mall where everyone was listening.
- Jen herself was on the receiving end from her friends when she stole an expensive sports jacket from the Penalty Box to attract the attention of a cute boy. At first, she tried pulling a Never My Fault by protesting that they convinced her to steal it by talking about stealing from their jobs, but they point out that they only steal small things like pencils and napkins, not huge things like expensive jackets.
Relationship Status: The ladies love me!! Especially Nikki.
Jobs: Currently unemployed, but I have a very colorful resume!
Interests: Chicks, hockey, partying, football
Favorite Quotations: "Basically, I rule."
Jonesy's a popular, good-looking, confident and loyal guy. He's the social director of the group, but he's not the most responsible guy; in fact, he's got a knack for getting fired from EVERY job he manages to land at the mall. His interests can be summed up in two words: HOCKEY and CHICKS! He's a popular, pathologically confident, good-looking guy who gets invited to all the parties and who's probably going peak in High School. But for someone who's so totally into chasing girls he's got a pretty low success rate with the ladies. There's one lady who's totally got his number, though, and that's Nikki. Jonesy loves to spar with her and their love/hate relationship could turn into romance one day. If they don't kill each other first...
Jonesy is lazy (even lazier than Wayne), smug, narcissistic, and persistent. He enjoys sports, chasing after beautiful women, and formulating get-rich-quick schemes, but is also prone to deviousness, arrogance, selfishness, male chauvinism, bragging, and dishonesty (nowhere near as dishonest as Tricia), though he cares deeply for his friends and puts their needs before his own. This implies that he is nowhere near as selfish as Tricia. Rather impressionable, he is easily fooled, like when his friends scared him out of skydiving with their stories of jumps gone awry. Jonesy also thinks that he can speak Spanish fluently, although his Spanish is poor according to Nikki and thinks that 47 is the answer to everything.
- Afraid of Blood: He has hemophobia (a fear of blood) after a traumatic nosebleed experience.
- Afraid of Needles: Subverted. Nikki believed this was the case when Jonesy frequently backed out on donating blood, but soon realized he was afraid of blood, not needles.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Nikki.
- Chick Magnet: Though this doesn't mean the attraction will always stick.
- Childhood Friend Romance: With Nikki—they've known each other since Kindergarten and it was mentioned in one episode (before they became an Official Couple) that he's had romantic feelings for Nikki since they were in 9th-grade.
- Deadpan Snarker: He's constantly sarcastic.
- Dreadful Musician: In "A Ding From Down Under", he tries to pick up girls by working at Burger McFlipster's and singing burger jingles (after he sees Wyatt do it), but his singing voice is so terrible that it drives all the female customers off.
- Even the Guys Want Him: The Gay Cowboy!
- Everyone Has Standards: Despite being kind of a player himself when it comes to girls and dating, even Jonesy seemed disgusted by the antics of Kyle "Dirty" Donaldson. In several episodes, he wouldnt purposely betray or even hurt his friendss feelings, particularly Nikki.
- Flirty Stepsiblings: With Jen—Jonesy's dad and Jen's mom hooked up at one point and got married in "The Wedding Destroyers."
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: As stepsiblings, Foolish to Jen's Responsible.
- George Jetson Job Security: He gets fired from his job almost Once an Episode, but usually has new job by the next episode.
- Get-Rich-Quick Scheme: Whenever Jonesy is not getting fired from his latest job, he will often try these, usually to the same success of his legitimate jobs.
- Heterosexual Life-Partner: With Jude.
- High-School Hustler: Whenever he's not on a job he's about to be fired from, Jonesy comes up with "get rich quick" schemes, which often fail.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: The huge guy to Nikki's Tiny Girl (he's the tallest of the group while she's the shortest).
- Jerk Jock: He is the star player for his high school hockey team. As for the "jerk," he's usually more obnoxious than mean.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Yes, he can be pretty obnoxious, but all of his pranks are in good fun and he does have a softer side (for evidence, look no further than "Snow Job").
- Kid-anova: A teenaged, high school-version.
- The Lancer: The most likely of the group to cause conflict within it due to his more Jerkass tendencies.
- Latin Lover: He's half Mexican from his dad's side (and half Filipino from his mom's side).
- Lovable Sex Maniac: Jonesy's as girl-crazy as his Caitlin is boy-crazy (at least until Nikki became his girlfriend).
- Mr. Fanservice: He has been seen shirtless, in his underwear, and even naked on a few occasions.
- Mr. Vice Guy: A sympathetic example, but he still serves as this. While he isn't mean or evil, he is rather insensitive, selfish, promiscuous and narcissistic. He's actually a good guy in spite of that, however, and he generally means well.
- Marilyn Maneuver: In one episode, he works at a place which has him in a kilt. This trope and the fact that he wasn't wearing underwear when pulling this trope is why he got fired.
- The McCoy: Among the boys, he's the most impulsive.
- Narcissist: He's very vain when it comes to his looks.
- One Head Taller: As previously mentioned, Jonesy's the tallest of the main six—Nikki in particular barely comes up to his shoulders.
- Persona Non Grata: For unknown reasons, he's been banned from at least one store in the mall. While reading the want ads at the beginning of "The Girls in the Band", he comments, "Been fired from there, been fired from there—ooh, not even allowed to shop in there."
- The Prankster: He enjoys pulling pranks on his brothers, their stepsisters and his friends.
- Running Gag: In almost every episode where he has a job at the mall, he'll get fired for one reason or another—the shortest time was in the pilot episode, where after just ten minutes after being hired at some ice cream shop at the mall, he was fired for flirting with the hostess, who turned out to be his employeer's daughter.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly to Wyatts Sensitive Guy.
- Signature Laugh: Jonesy's laugh is very distinct.
- Slap-Slap-Kiss: With Nikki.
- Stronger Than They Look: In the wrestling episode, where he helps Jen get rid of wrestling equipment, the vast majority of his wins are due to Caitlain covering him in slippery gel, but several of his early wins were due to his own martial prowess, best exemplified where he throws Ron the Rent a Cop, who is established as one of the strongest characters on the show, several feet out of the ring.
- Verbal Tic: Jonesy tends to over-emphasize his T's when he talks.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Though it's most likely dyed.
Relationship Status: I'm on the lookout for The One, guys!!!
Jobs: I work at the Big Squeeze. I don't want to talk about it, OK?!!
Interests: Shopping, Fashion, Magazines, Fashion Magazines.
Favorite Quotations: "Good clothing can open doors." ''It's Boy/Girl 101. Men are the hunters, women get the presents."
Caitlin's the newest addition to the tight group of friends. She's spoiled, but she's also sweet, and her friends can't help but love her even though she can be pretty clueless. Caitlin's a girlie-girl to the core, and she's totally boy-crazy to boot. Unfortunately, if a cute guy even LOOKS in her direction, she's bound to do something entirely embarrassing! Caitlin is better equipped to shop at the mall than she is to work at it. Unfortunately, her 'rents have forced her to find a part-time gig in an effort to teach her the value of money. She's convinced they'll let her off the hook and give her back her credit card any day now, though...
Caitlin is a shopaholic. She enjoys keeping up with new trends and dating attractive males, but is prone to weakness, distraction, jealousy, and competition. Occasionally, she can be self-centered and shallow (personality traits she has denied having). She describes herself as a "slave to fashion" and a "high maintenance menace", and regards teen magazines as bibles for women. She loves her friends, although she is almost always ready to stand them up for a good sale.
- Alliterative Name: Her first and last names both start with "C".
- Balloon Belly: After getting a job at Chocoholics Anonymous in "Girlie Boys", she eats 6 pounds worth of chocolate a day, and it shows. She doesn't notice her gain until she had difficulty putting on a pair of jeans, and then she went to a gym to lose the weight.
- Badass Adorable: Not quite as badass as Nikki, but just as, if not more, adorable than she is.
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted; her mascara always runs when she starts crying.
- Boyish Short Hair: Inverted; she has the shortest hair of the girls in the group, but she's far from being a tomboy and is very girly.
- Cannot Keep a Secret:
- In "Pillow Talk", the gang share their most embarrassing storiesnote , promising to keep the stories only among themselves. However, Caitlin tells her Guy of the Week Dustin every embarrassing story except for hers. When a hypnotist performs at the mall, Dustin inadvertently tells the stories while under hypnosis. The gang gets revenge on Caitlin by making Tricia's "toilet paper tail" video of her viral.
- In "Silent Butt Deadly", she learns of Jude's secret relationship with a senior named Melinda after chasing him down. Jude tells Caitlin not to tell anyone; however, she ends up telling everyone.
- The Chick: The most feminine of the girls, and the entire gang.
- Credit Card Plot: Caitlin's origin story and recurring weakness.
- Cute, but Cacophonic: Downplayed. Her speaking voice is fine when she's calm; however, she has a rather loud scream, and her sobbing can be grating.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: By her own admission, Caitlin's kind of a klutz and she gets especially klutzy around guys that she's romantically interested in. For example, when Caitlin was dating Talon (one of her only boyfriend to last beyond more than one episode of the show), he attained so many injuries while being around Caitlin that Jen points out that Caitlin essentially almost put him in the hospital.
- Dark-Skinned Blonde: Temporarily in one episode after wearing a special type of makeup.
- Depending on the Writer: While she is always considered attractive, her skills to pick up guys tends to varies. Some episodes have her effortlessly getting a date just by batting her eyelashes, yet in others, she is very awkward and clumsy in her approach, which hurt her chances with her potential love interest.
- Embarrassing Nickname: Tricia usually refers to Caitlin as "Lemonhead" because of her job at the Big Squeeze.
- Everyone Has Standards: She loves all things pink and girly. But she was absolutely horrified when Nikki got a girly makeover, lost her tomboyish personality, and started acting like the Clones in "Employee of the Month".
- Fallen Princess: She was just as snooty and stuck up as her "friend" Tricia, until her parents cut her off and made her get a job. Without her money, her so called friends ditched her. Plus that lemon hat, she eventually becomes nicer when she makes some real friends.
- Feigning Intelligence: She does this whenever she tries to get the attention of a smart AND cute boy.
- Former Friend of Alpha Bitch: To Tricia. After Caitlin's parents take away her credit cards, Tricia promptly dropped Caitlin from her circle of "friends."
- Gasshole: Caitlin may not be as bad as the male characters (particularly Jonesy and Jude), but she still gets quite gassy at times, especially when it comes to beans and pistachio. In fact, despite being the most overt  of the group, Caitlin has farted more times on screen than any other girl on the show.
- Genki Girl: Think of a non-magical Usagi Tsukino.
- Girls Love Chocolate: She even once got fat working at a chocolate store.
- Girly Girl: She enjoys shopping, talking about boys and enjoys accessorizing. Not to mention she wears dresses that are mainly girly.
- She will often dump a guy for something relatively minor but often fears that she will be dumped for her own minor flaws. In "Going Underground", she dumped Talon for being a terrible kisser; however, she feared that he would break up with her for injuring him repeatedly, albeit unintentionally.
- In "Pillow Talk", Caitlin has no problem revealing embarrassing secrets about her friends to her boyfriend but refuses to divulge on her most embarrassing story.
- Ink-Suit Actor: Caitlin looks almost exactly like Brooke D'Orsay—one of the only real differences being that Caitlin has much shorter hair.
- Insistent Terminology: In "The One with the Cold Sore", she is very adamant about calling her cold sore a "lip thingy".
- Master Actor: In "The Big Sickie", as part of a Zany Scheme to get Jen a day off of work, she pretended to be her grieving sister trying to convince Jen to see their "dying aunt", complete with realistic Crocodile Tears and running mascara. She perfected this skill because she wanted to be a soap opera star when she was younger.
- Meganekko: Fakes this in "Smarten Up" (to make her seem smarter to a college guy) and "Love at Worst Sight" (because of Jonesy's scam to earn extra commission).
- Minor Flaw, Major Breakup: As previously mentioned, Caitlin has a tendency of dumping guys for incredibly shallow reasons. Another example would be in one episode where she dumped a guy simply because he had a bunch of pimples all over his back.
- Panty Shot: She deliberately hikes part of her skirt, exposing her panties, to get Jen to react and lose a bet in "One Quiet Day".
- Pink Means Feminine: Many of her outfits and accessories are pink.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Downplayed in that while she doesn't have superhuman-strength, Caitlin is actually quite strong despite her petite stature. It's lampshaded twice in the third season:
- "Baby, You Stink" — After seeing Caitlin push this huge photo booth all the way to the Lemon, Nikki notes, "For a size zero, she can drag a heavy load."
- "Insert Name Here" — After coming up with a plan to help Wyatt finally get over his ex-girlfriend, Serena, the first thing Caitlin does is delete Serena's phone number from Wyatt's cellphone. She (literally) wrestles with Wyatt to get his phone from him, and after deleting Serena's number from it, Wyatt fails to get Caitlin off of him and notes, "You're freakishly strong for someone so small."
- Prone to Tears: It doesn't seem to take much to get her in tears.
- Serial Romeo: A rare female version—she seems to have some sort of inability to keep a boyfriend for longer than a month. The others very often lampshade it.Nikki: (About Caitlin's latest boyfriend) He was her twelfth "The One".
- Shipper on Deck: For Darth/Julie in "Welcome to the Darth Side."
- Sixth Ranger: Joins the well-established group, making it officially six teens.
- Squee!: Usually, her squeeing is more tolerable than the Clones.
- Spoiled Sweet: Her family seems to be very rich, as evidenced in the episode "Oops, I Dailed It Again", where her father runs a tech company. And while she is known for her shallow interests, she is also very kind and considerate, especially to her friends.
- Stalker with a Crush: Sometimes crosses into this.
- Sweet Tooth: Chocolate is one of her many weaknesses.
- Teens Are Short: Without her high heel wedges (or any kind of heels or platforms for that matter), she appears to be around the same height as Nikki, if only slightly taller.
- True Blue Femininity: Her skirt and eyeshadow are both bright blue.
- Tsundere: Type B. She becomes a serious Tsun whenever she has PMS.
- Valley Girl: She speaks with a slight valley girl accent despite (presumably) being from Canada.
- Yandere: Though unintentional, her actions towards certain boys can sometimes be interpreted as such.
- Your Makeup Is Running: Anytime she cries.
People from around The Mall
Relationship Status: Married with a son.
Job: Owner of the "Penalty Box".
Interests: Football, sports in general
Favorite Quotations: "MASTERSON!"
Coach Halder is the owner/manager of the "Penalty Box," a sporting goods store, and Jen's boss throughout the series. He is a tall muscular, retired football player. Much like Ron and Wayne, Coach Halder despises Jonesy, due to his constant messing around in his store. He runs the store with extremely strict rules, such as the usage of the literal "penalty box," an Ice Hockey penalty box in the store to which he sends his employees (and sometimes his customers) for a time out when they make an infraction in his store, depending on his rules.
However, Halder is shown to love pranks and Halloween, and at several points his behavior is considered to be obnoxious by both his employees and others, including customers (he actually scared a couple of his customers so badly that the mall paramedics were called in twice). Even though Jen's his hardest working employee, Coach Halder's usually the strictest with her—he constantly sends her to the penalty box for ridiculous reasons such as displaying affection or love during work hours. However, at the same time, he does have a lot of respect for her, especially since Jen's the first (and currently only) one of his employees to have actually worked for him for an entire year.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: His behavior can best be compared to that of a military general.
- Hypocrite: In the pilot episode, Coach Halder briefly considers not hiring Jen when he witnesses her chewing out Caitlin, even though that's how he generally treats his own employees (and sometimes his customers).
- Jerk Jock: He acts more like a frat prankster than a grown man.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite this, he has had many moments where he has proven himself to be a good person, often towards Jen. This is shown right in the first episode when he immediately berates Jen for yelling at Caitlin and comes within an inch of firing her, before Caitlin begs him to give her a chance.
- Large Ham: He tends to go over-the-top when pulling pranks and especially during Halloween.
- Mean Boss: Subverted. While Coach Halder can be abrasive towards Jen, he has shown that he can be lenient as well.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Granted it is played for amusement, but when he reveals to Jen that he is aware she called him a lunkhead in her private diary, and a horrified Jen begs him to know where he heard it, he is clearly sickened that he overheard private details from his employee's life.
- Real Men Wear Pink: In "Insert Name Here", Jude and the rest of the gang discover that he's a closet figure skater. Coach Halder even admits that he wanted to go pro, but his dad wouldn't let him. He also does poetry and wants to show people his softer side, but isn't very good at it.Halder: LOVE ME!
- Screams Like a Little Girl: For such a gruff manly-man, he has a rather high-pitched scream.
RON THE RENT-A-COP
Relationship Status: N/A
Jobs: Mall's security cop.
Favorite Quotations: "I'm watching you...MAGGOTS."
Ron is the mall's security cop, whose appearance and mannerisms bear a striking similarity to Christopher Walken. He is one of the show's possible antagonists, being a major enemy to Jonesy and Jude, since he constantly tries to thwart their pranks and scams. Ron rules the mall with an iron fist by punishing teens hanging out or working in it for the most ridiculous actions. Despite his age and experience, Ron, ironically, doesn't know what a Fascist is. Ron has a severe hatred for teenagers, especially for the gang, considering them the "biggest threat to mall security in all history of threats to mall security". He hires Kai, then he fires him on "The New Guy." He is a Vietnam War Veteran (which brings his nationality into question, as Canada was not involved in that conflict) and is seen to have several sudden flashbacks of his days in the war in the least expected moments, something which has become a running gag throughout the series. He has codenames for each member of the gang: Caitlin being "Cupcake," Nikki being "Nose Ring," Wyatt being "Coffee Pot," Jen being "Gym Sock," Jude being "Hang Ten" and Jonesy being "Maverick." In turn, he is known by most people, notably the main six, as "Ron the Rent-a-Cop." Taking this all into consideration, he apparently suffers from PTSD. However, despite his hatred for teens, Ron seems to share a bond or sort of friendship with Jude, since at one point during the show, both of them got hooked on a soap opera that they would watch together in Ron's office. Ironically enough, Jonesy, Jude and Wyatt discover in the episode "Life Slaver" that Ron used to be a rebellious troublemaker/prankster in the mall during the 70's.
- Comfort Food: Chocolate-covered jellybeans were his favourite candy as a kid. When Jen starts selling him boxes of the stuff in "Welcome to the Darth Side," it becomes his G-Rated Drug. He even gains a 5 o'clock shadow because of his addiction to the candy.
- The Comically Serious: Dirty Harry as a mall cop.
- Former Teen Rebel: The guys find old security footage of a young Ron acting exactly like Jonesy.
- Good All Along: Prior to "Dude of the Living Dead" he was one of the antagonists, but ever since the episode (despite it being a dream), he got cemented into a much more prominent, respected, protagonistic role. Especially with Jude where they are shown bonding over a soap opera (makes sense considering it was his dream).Jonesey: "I've never been so glad to see the Mall Cop."
- Good Is Not Nice: Ron comes down hard, but ultimately, he's just doing his job.
Relationship Status: N/A
Jobs: Manager (and later owner) of "Underground Video".
Interests: Movies, Cinema, and Film.
Favorite Quotations: "This movie meant more to me than your life!"
Wayne is the manager (and later owner) of "Underground Video", a video rental store which specializes in independent films. First introduced in episode "Going Underground", Wayne is a sarcastic, cynical, sardonic, and pessimistic know-it-all who only befriends people whom he considers have knowledge of cinematography close to or equal to his own. Because of these standards, out of the gang, Wayne really only befriends Jude. Wayne hates Jonesy and everything that Jonesy likes, especially his favourite movie, "Top M16" (a play on Top Gun). Jude and Wyatt found themselves working for Wayne in the episode "Going Underground" after Wyatt was fired from "Spin This", while Jude's stand "Stick-It" was closed by the health inspector (see above for more information). Despite being short and overweight, Wayne is shown to be somewhat physically strong, since in episode "Dirty Work" he beats up Jonesy for stealing his fries, and in "Career Day", he dunks Wyatt and Jude in the pet store aquarium for ruining his "The 77th Samurai" limited edition tape. He is constantly heard listening to The Clash on his headphones. After years of watching movies, Wayne has gained the ability to somehow know which movie a person should see. In the fourth season episode "6 Teens and a Baby," he ends up getting a job at Burger McFlipsters with Wyatt after Underground Video shuts down (presumably due to a lack of business).
- Crazy-Prepared: He made a shrine dedicated to his favourite movie of all time in Underground Video with the tape as a centerpiece, but when Jude carelessly records over it, Wayne reveals he has an "idiot-proof" backup at home.
- Deadpan Snarker: He can give Nikki a run for her money in terms of cynical sarcasm.
- Disproportionate Retribution:
- Fires Wyatt over accidentally spilling coffee on a limited edition tape. The above quote was what he had to say about it.
- Before that, he fires Jonesy minutes after hiring him simply for liking the movie, "Top M16s", a movie Wayne adamantly hates.
- Expy: He is one of Barry from the film adaptation of High Fidelity almost to the point of Captain Ersatz. The only real difference between the two characters is that Wayne's a film snob while Barry's a music snob.
- Fat Bastard: Not a very physically fit person, nor is he rather pleasant.
- The Grinch: Does not like Christmas and thinks that all Christmas movies suck. He changes after a visit from the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future.
- Hidden Depths: He is really good at finding the perfect romantic movie depending on the customer's relationship.
- Honor Before Reason: Would rather insult customers for their choice of movies rather than allow them to make the purchase and make money if he considered it a disrespect to films.
- Jerkass: Insults everyone, including customers, for renting movies he doesn't like.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite this, during Role Reversal, he was surprisingly kind towards Caitlin.
- Surrounded by Idiots: How he views the gang (mainly the guys) and the others they hang out with.
AKA Chrissy, Kirsten and Kristen
Relationship Status: N/A
Jobs: Chrissy is an Assistant Manager at the Khaki Barn, Kirsten and Kristen are sales associates.
Interests: Keeping up the latest trends.
Favorite Quotations: "Welcome to the Khaki Barn", "Have a Khaki day!", "EEEEEHHHH!"
The Clones are coworkers of Nikki Wong at the Khaki Barn clothing store, where Chrissy's the manager (therefore making her Nikki's boss) while Kirsten and Kristen are sales associates alongside Nikki. Nikki nicknamed the three girls The Clones because, except for their hairstyles and eye colors, all three look/sound/act alike, fitting right into the teenybopper stereotype (including not acting very smart, religiously following the latest teen trends and fads and frequently chatting about them mindlessly, much to Nikki's annoyance) and believe that individualism is overrated and that conformity is the way to go for them and everyone else, making them the direct opposites of Nikki. Kirsten and Kristen are normally bossed around and told everything to do by Chrissy to the point that when Chrissy is away and can't boss them around, they usually look to Nikki as their role model/leader. As a reflection of their gabby and gossipy natures, all three Clones are also physically depicted with big, wide mouths and comparatively thinner jaws than other characters on the show.
The Clones do not like Nikki very much and are often intimidated by her (and sometimes even scared of her), and Nikki thinks very little of The Clones' personalities and does all she can not to fit the Khaki Barn's mold (although Chrissy nearly succeeded once in turning Nikki into a Clone in "Employee of the Month" by using reverse psychology), but The Clones do not seem to mind having Nikki around at work because her lack of motivation to make sales means more for them.
- Bad Boss: Played with by Chrissy. She justifies it towards Nikki, but zig-zags it towards Kirsten and Kristen.
- Catchphrase: Whenever a customer comes into their store, they greet them with "Welcome to the Khaki Barn!" and when a customer leaves, they say "Have a Khaki day!"
- Closet Geek: Chrissy is a Star Wars fan. Her friends had no idea until Jonesy let it slip.
- Cute, but Cacophonic: All three have childish, high-pitched voices, and whenever they Squee!, Nikki in particular is annoyed by it.
- Dumb Blondes: Chrissy is the smartest of the three, although that's not saying much.
- Expies: Of the Bimbettes.
- Gold Makes Everything Shiny: In one episode, they all wear identical gold dresses.
- My Hair Came Out Green: In the subplot of one episode, Kristen and Kirsten dye their hair brown as part of some new trend, but eventually try dying their hair back to its original blonde-color—however, they end up accidentally turning their hair green, which they assumed was caused by accidentally over-processing the hair dye they used. Nikki helps them with their issue by giving them blonde wigs that they can wear until the hair-dye they used wears off.
- Leitmotif: The music that plays during scenes in the Khaki Barn.
- Simpleton Voice: Their high-pitched voices befit their lack of intelligence.
- Squee!: Their single worst annoying trait; something trendy excites them and they let out a shrill squeal. Not helped in that it's often a group squee.
- Theme Twin Naming: Kirsten and Kristen, although none of the Clones are actually related to each other (they just happen to look identical to each other).
- Those Two Guys: Kirsten and Kristen; Chrissy is more independent.
Relationship Status: Dating Julie.
Favorite Quotations: N/A
Darth is that freaky nerd that appears in every high school who knows waaaay too much about The Force and owns The Jedi's Guide to Life.
Darth works at The Stereo Shack and carries a light saber to the job with him. He may well be the next aerospace engineer at NASA, but as far as his career as a teen goes, he's an utter social disaster.
For a long time, Darth had a hopeless crush on Nikki...but would pretty much date just about any girl who asked. Darth also had a deep-seated hatred for Jonesy, who used to bully him when they were in middle school.
These days, Darth is dating Julie the "Taco Girl," his soul mate. He is known to help out the 6 teens in an emergency, and is known as the guy the gang goes to when they need some techno chaos (like having Darth set off all the alarms in the mall).
- Arch-Enemy: Considered Jonesy this for a time, but by the end of season #2, the two had mostly resolved their conflict, with Jonesy actually complimenting Darth after he got back together with his girlfriend.
- Badass Bookworm: At times. He manages to beat Jonesy on the wrestling mat in "Wrestlemania".
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He may look like a bespectacled dweeb who speaks with a lisp, but do not be fooled. This little nerd is a true master of the lightsaber, and he easily kicked Jonesey's ass. Taken to the extreme in "Dude of the Living Dead" where in a Heroic Sacrifice he stays behind to hold off the zombies to allow his friends to escape. Then in true Jedi Master fashion activates a real lightsaber and cuts up a whole horde of zombies. If that's not awesome I don't know what is.
- Freaky Is Cool: He really enjoyed the Zombie Apocalypse in "Dude of the Living Dead" and said he had been waiting for the day ever since he was a padawan.
- Geek: Really goes without question, but to say he has some geeky habits would be an understatement, especially considering he seems to keep a fake lightsaber on him at all times.
- Heroic Sacrifice: In "Dude of the Living Dead", where he stays behind to allow his friends to escape, although it was just a dream.Darth: "Go on without me. I'll be okay."Jude: "You are one brave dude."
- Hollywood Nerd: Very knowledgeable of science fiction movies, though not to the same level as Wayne.
- Known Only by Their Nickname: His real name is never mentioned.
- Nerd Glasses: Wears these by default during the series.
- Shout-Out: A Star Wars fanboy.
- Techno Wizard: Has a high level of knowledge on most things related to technology, though this rarely comes into use during episodes.
Relationship Status: Dated Jude in the past.
Favorite Quotations: N/A
Starr was once the laid back employee of "Vegan Island", a dedicated vegan who loved extreme sports, relaxing, and yoga.
Jude and Starr met after Jude's difficult break-up with a computerized armchair, but didn't have a first formal date until Jude and Starr discovered they both enjoyed watching fountain diving. After a disastrous first date (Jude threw up in Starr's mouth), it took months for Starr to forgive him (and even longer for Jude to work up the courage to ask her out again).
Starr transformed into a goth in the episode "Lights Out" and while Jude tried to change with her, ultimately Starr (who decided she wanted to be called Nebula) broke up with Jude because she wanted to go her own way. Later on, in the episode, "On Your Mark, Get Set... Date", Starr adopted a nerd persona.
- Bare Your Midriff: Each of her outfits.
- Cloudcuckoolander: She changed her personality twice for no apparent reason.
- Does Not Like Shoes:
- Has some meaningful stigma against wearing shoes unless she really has to—though she does wear sandals. Except when she's doing yoga, then she'll go barefoot...and use her unclad feet to manage orders.
- Upon donning her goth identity, she dispenses with her shoe aversion.
- Goth: As Nebula.
- Granola Girl: She worked at a vegan food stand.
- Handy Feet: Prefered to use her feet and toes to handle transactions while doing yoga at her workplace whenever doing poses that restricted the use of her hands. Except it was a health code no-no and she was too oblivious to notice it disgustsed the customers.
- Insufferable Genius: What she becomes after adopting a nerd persona. She and Jude tried pursuing a relationship again, but Starr ultimately dumps him due to feeling that he's not "intelligent enough" for her.
- Jerkass: Upon becoming an Insufferable Genius, she loses most of her redeeming qualities.
- Love Hurts: Her eventual Star-Crossed Lovers relationship with Jude.
- Nerd: In "On Your Mark, Get Set...Date."
Relationship Status: Not known but has a son.
Favorite Quotations: N/A
Mother of the young mall terror Stanley, the Yummy Mummy is a major flirt, teasing the men and women of the mall (Jonesy in particular).
She spends a fair amount of time at the mall, and when she isn't stressing out about her wild son, you can see her shopping just about everywhere.
Yummy Mummy doesn't appear to be a afraid of anything, she even taken on Jonesy in a wrestling ring (yes, she lost, but in all fairness, Jonesy was cheating...).
- Beauty Mark: Has on her left cheek.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: It's never revealed what her real name is.
- Mrs. Robinson: She has been shown to be attracted to men younger than her, including teenagers.
- Pushover Parents: She never bothers to discipline her son Stanley.
- Stacy's Mom: She's old enough to be the mother of a young boy and is attractive enough to earn the attention of many men.
AKA Taco Girl
Relationship Status: Dating Darth.
Jobs: Works at Wonder Taco
Favorite Quotations: N/A
Julie works at Wonder Taco in the mall can most often be seen wearing a giant hard shell taco hat on her head. Julie has no patience for rude customers, and will happily spit in anyone's food if they bug her on the job.
Julie has the bad luck of having a giant retainer on at all times, making it hard to see when she's happy, as the whole rig keeps her mouth forced open all the time.
Julie has had a secret crush on Darth for a very long time, but she finally managed to get Darth to notice her, and the two of them have been fairly happy together ever since.
Julie is able to convince Darth to help out our gang of teens, as she's more sympathetic to their problems than Darth is.
- Braces of Orthodontic Overkill: She's also got headgear.
- Bad Job, Worse Uniform: Her taco hat looks pretty ridiculous.
- Fangirl: Of Star Wars, like her boyfriend Darth. She's even worn Princess Leia's gold bikini at least once.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's not the nicest person and has no qualms about serving filthy tacos to bad customers, but she'll help out the gang when they need it.
- Nice Hat: Almost always seen wearing a large taco hat, due to having to have it on while on the job.
- Second Love: To Darth, as he initially had feelings for Nikki before dating her.
- She Cleans Up Nicely: Averted—she does not look any prettier in a pink dress or a gold bikini, even with her hair down.
- Tampering with Food and Drink: When a customer annoys her or is rude to her, she'll discreetly fill their tacos with dirt from a dustpan.
Relationship Status: N/A
Favorite Quotations: N/A
Tricia is your typical high school "popular" girl. She has all the finest clothes, dates all the "popular" guys, and would NEVER be caught dead working in the mall! Or any other kind of part-time job for that matter.
Tricia was once best friends with Caitlin...until Caitlin's parents took Caitlin's credit cards away. When Caitlin was forced to get a job, Tricia decided she wanted nothing to do with Caitlin and ended their friendship on a whim. Tricia now spends her time shopping with her "new" friends (mostly two girls named Mandy and Gwen) and taking every opportunity to humiliate Caitlin and our gang of 6 (who she also considers too unpopular to be worth her time) at the lemon.
- Alpha Bitch: Definitely a strong example of this—just watch any episode where she has a major role.
- Attention Whore: She hijacks Caitlin's Chill TV Sweet Sixteen party in "Sweet 6teen."
- Big Bad: Almost every episode she appears in has her trying to ruin or sabotage the 6teen gang
- Crocodile Tears: She uses them to con Jonesy in "Spring Fling."
- False Friend: "Sweet 6Teen" had her pretending to be friends again with Caitlin, who's having her sweet sixteen featured on a TV show, just so she can appear on TV. She ends up double-crossing Caitlin and stealing the party.
- Girl Posse: In the form of Gwen and Mandy.
- Gold Digger: She's only interested in people with money—like in "Prank'd," when it seemed like Caitlin had her credit cards, Tricia turned into what essentially amounts to a Stalker Without a Crush (or even a Stalker With A Crush).
- Laser-Guided Karma: Anytime Tricia tries doing something bad to Caitlin or any of her friends, it ultimately backfires, with the main six coming out on top.
- The Psycho Rangers: She leads another six teen clique. They took over the gang's regular table in an episode.
- Reused Character Design: She strongly resembles Megara from Hercules, even though they're nothing alike personality-wise.
- Rich Bitch: Tricia's mentioned to come from a rich family (apparently, her family has enough money that she could potentially have her parents build a new gymnasium for the high school that she and the main six attend) and is one of the few teens to not have a job at the mall. She looks down on those who do haves jobs, especially Caitlin and her friends.
- Smug Snake: Tricia believes that she is above Caitlin and her friends; however, any time Tricia tries to upstage Caitlin, more often than not she fails.
- We Used to Be Friends: After Caitlin first moved to the area where the Galleria Mall is, Tricia was her best friend for at least a year—however, after Caitlin maxed out her credit card and Mr. and Mrs. Cooke made her get a job to pay it off, Tricia dropped her like a hot potato.
Mandy and Gwen are Tricia's best friends after she drops Caitlin as a friend in the series' pilot episode—like Tricia, both girls have mean/rude/snobby attitudes and just as mean to Caitlin and her friends as Tricia is.
- Girl Posse: They serve as this to Tricia after she drops Caitlin as a friend.
- Rich Bitch: While not confirmed, Mandy and Gwen are both implied to come from rich families and they're two of the few teens who don't have part-time jobs at the mall like Caitlin and the rest of the main six.
- Satellite Character: Other than serving as Tricia's Girl Posse and acting as the muscle in her schemes (whether or not they have anything to do with Caitlin and/or the rest of the main six), they really don't have much of a role in the series. It's also implied that Mandy and Gwen didn't become friends with Tricia until after she had stopped being friends with Caitlin, because in "The Khaki Girl," both Mandy and Gwen seem genuinely surprised after Caitlin revealed that she and Tricia were friends at one point.
- With Friends Like These...: Even though Mandy and Gwen are supposed to be Tricia's best friends, she doesn't appear to be all that loyal to them—for example, whenever it seems that Caitlin's "rich" again, Tricia ultimately drops them in order to have Caitlin as her BFF again.
Relationship Status: Dated Wyatt in the past, now is going out with Chad.
Jobs: Manager at Spin This!
Favorite Quotations: N/A
Serena is a high school senior at the same school as the rest of the gang. She manages "Spin This!" a music store at the mall.
While Wyatt was working at the same music store, he had a serious crush on Serena. She wasn't interested in him though, because he wasn't "mature" enough for her. Eventually Wyatt convinced Serena to go out with him, and things went well for a while, until...
Serena dumped Wyatt, in a text message! She decided Wyatt was TOO serious about the relationship, and didn't have the guts to tell him face to face. She got back together with her ex-boyfriend, Chad, one of her co-workers at the music store, and Wyatt had a VERY tough time getting over her.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her main outfit shows off her stomach.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: At first she seems like a mature and level-headed person, and when she and Wyatt were dating and Wyatt's insecurities about his relationship with her came up, Serena tried advising Wyatt to trust her more. But then Serena gets back together with Chad, one of her ex-boyfriends, while she was still technically dating Wyatt and ultimately dumps Wyatt via text message instead of just doing it in person.
- She actually gets worse as the series goes on, especially in the episodes after Wyatt finally gets over his feelings for her and moves on to other girls. For example, when Marlowe (Wyatt's first girlfriend after Serena) got a job at Spin This, Serena got jealous of their relationship and tried getting back together with Wyatt behind Marlowe's back (and while Serena was still technically dating Chad, the guy she had dumped Wyatt for in the first place).
- Hypocrite: The main reason Serena broke up with Wyatt was basically because she felt that he wasn't "mature" enough for her, but instead of just being honest with Wyatt about how she felt and breaking up with him in person, she chose to dump him via text message and actually gave him the whole "it's not you, it's me" speech. Also, she dumped him for a guy who, though older than Wyatt (albeit only by a year or two), is arguably/ironically more immature than Wyatt is. And then when Wyatt finally got over his feelings for her, she tried ruining at least two of his following relationships out of jealousy, even though she was the one who had dumped Wyatt in the first place.
- Aside from trying to ruin Wyatt's relationship with Marlowe, Serena also tried sabotaging Wyatt's relationship with Kylie Smilie in the popstar's titular episode. In that particular, Serena and Chad break up again (only this time Serena claims that it's for good), and when Serena sees that Wyatt and Kylie are developing feelings for each other, she pulls Wyatt aside and tries convincing him to give her and their relationship another chance. But at this point, Wyatt's completely moved from on anything to do with Serena (at least in a romantic sense) and advises Serena to do the same.
- Sassy Black Woman: But not in a good way.
- Unrequited Love Switcheroo: It's implied that Serena was never that into Wyatt when they were actually dating, but it wasn't until after Wyatt actually got over his feelings for Serena and moved on to other girls that she started returning his (former) feelings for her and made at least two attempts to get back together with him.
Relationship Status: Used to date Wyatt
Jobs: Spin This briefly, others unknown
Favorite Quotations: N/A
Marlowe is a member of Wyatt's band, and he had a huge crush on her. It took Wyatt a very long time to work up the courage to ask her out, and eventually wrote a song (which she accidentally heard) that brought the two of them together.
Marlowe has a great deal of patience, and is very accepting and supportive of Wyatt's crazy adventures with the rest of the gang (like the time the guys had a "man off" to see who smelled the best after a week without washing any part of their bodies).
Even when Wyatt got the whole band in trouble by signing a contract with Burger McFlipsters corporate office, Marlowe still supported him, staying with him when the band wanted him gone.
- Better as Friends: She and Wyatt were getting on each other's nerves after they started spending way too much time together. In the end, after talking it over, they mutually decide to break up and figure that they're probably better off as Just Friends—or as Marlowe puts it, "the best of exes."
- Birds of a Feather: With Wyatt.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Unlike Serena, who did continue to appear on an occasional basis after her breakup with Wyatt, Marlowe more or less vanished from the show entirely after their breakup in "Date and Switch." Her final appearance was a non-speaking cameo in "Quit It."
Relationship Status: None

Jen's older sister Courtney has always been seen as the more glamorous and popular one.
Courtney's a pro shopper, a top basketball player and loved by everyone (especically Jude, Wyatt, and Jonesy) except her younger sister Jen, who's very jealous and angry at her sister.
Courtney also has a way of getting our gang into trouble. Aside from telling embarrassing stories about Jen, she convinced the gang to get fake IDs and sneak into a nightclub in the mall. It wasn't until Courtney left the gang hanging that they finally realized they already had the cooler sister's (meaning Jen's) attention.
But when Jen forces Courtney into helping her bail the gang the out of mall-jail, Courtney finally reveals the real reason why she came for spring break instead of going skiing with her friends like she usually does: Courtney got kicked out of school, though she doesn't specify why (Jen figures that Courtney flunked all her classes). Courtney also confesses that she's always been secretly jealous of Jen and claims that, despite what Jen always thought, Jen's the true "favorite" of the family, being the one that their parents are actually proud of.
Recently, Courtney and Jen have banded together to defend themselves from their new stepbrothers, and they are much closer as sisters and friends.
- Big Sister Bully: The first three-quarters of "It's Always Courtney, Courtney, Courtney!"
- Cool Big Sis: To everyone but Jen—at least until the others start seeing Courtney for the person she really is.
- Easily Forgiven: Once Courtney admitted that she's always been secretly jealous of Jen and explains that Jen's the one they're parents are actually proud of instead of Courtney, Jen seemed rather quick to forgive her sister.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: What she ultimately is—deep down, Courtney really does care about her sister, their stepbrothers (although she gets along better with Jonesy than she does with Diego or Robbie) and later, their baby half-sister, Emma Jr.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Even though Courtney's technically the oldest of the six Masterson-Garcia kids, Jen's always been the more "mature" and "responsible" one of her and Courtney and is also the the most mature and responsible of the six Masterson-Garcia kids.
- The Unfavorite: How Jen initially saw herself compared to her sister, but Courtney later claims that Jen's the true favorite of the family and even says that their parents want Courtney to be more like Jen (in that Courtney needs to be more mature and responsible).
- Wham Line: When Courtney reveals to Jen the real reason why she came home for spring break isntead of going with her friends like she normally would've.Courtney: Yeah, well, that's all going to change! (turns away from her sister with a really sad look on her face)Jen: What do you mean?Courtney: I'm not home because of spring break, Jen. I'm home because they kicked me out of school.
Relationship Status: None but she has dated Jonesy in the past.
Favorite Quotations: N/A
Lydia is simply crazy. At one time she dated Jonesy, but she was so very VERY clingy that she terrified him and his friends.
Lydia once brought Jonesy an anatomically correct model of her heart to show him how much she loved him (it was very gross), but she couldn't make him a model of her soul (because souls are invisible).
When Jonesy broke up with her, she still followed him around "just because we aren't dating anymore doesn't mean we can't go out, right?"
More recently, Lydia has become even more crazy (if that's even possible), chasing after Wyatt, confusing Wyatt with Wayne, and giving out model roosters to the ones she loves. The gang sometimes calls her the "Crazy Chicken Lady". Oh, and she still isn't quite over Jonesy yet.
Lydia has some scary eye twitches when she is confused, and pretty much everyone knows to run when she comes near.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Jonesy mentions that she's hot but way too clingy.
- Cloudcuckoolander: She somehow confuses Jude (who is white) for Wyatt (who is black) and calls the two identical twin siblings no less. When Wayne shows up, she thinks they are identical triplets.
- Cute and Psycho: She's an attractive but very mentally unstable redhead.
- Determinator: In terms of trying to renew her relationship with Jonesy.
- Expy: Of Stacy from Wayne's World.
- Psycho Ex-Girlfriend: She was crazy before Jonesy broke up with her.
- Stalking Is Love: She continues to stalk Jonesy, even after he breaks up with her.
