    Yuna Kamihara
Yuna as she appears in the first two seasons.
Click here to see her appearance in the third season. 
Voiced by: Motoko Kumai (Japanese), Eden Riegel (English)

A young Okinawan-Japanese girl who is Stitch's best friend after he left Lilo. She lives with her grandmother in a rural area of Izayoi Island in the first two seasons but moves to Okinawa New Town with her cousin Tigerlily in the third season.

    Tigerlily Sakai (Zuruko Sasuga)
Voiced by: Rica Matsumoto (Japanese), Laura Bailey (English)

Yuna's mean, bullying cousin who often gives her chores to do and is often annoyed by Stitch. Introduced two-thirds into the second season, she becomes Yuna's substitute homeroom teacher at her school, and then her caretaker from the third season onwards.

  • Berserk Button: Do not call her an old lady.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Very much so throughout season 2. While she's very nice to everyone else, she's pretty mean at home.
  • Dub Name Change: She's Zuruko Sasuga in the Japanese original, but her full name is changed to Tigerlily Sakai in the international version. Oddly, her original name is still written on-screen in Japanese (さすがつるこ; Sasuga Zuruko) when she introduces herself to Yuna's class in her debut episode regardless of the dub language.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She's not as mean or harsh to Yuna and/or Stitch in season 3.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Has genuine nice moments of it in the third season.
  • Meaningful Name: Her Japanese surname Sasuga (さすが) roughly means "as one would expect of", which is used in the context of someone pulling off extraordinary things. It's also not necessarily used as a compliment; it can be also used as a subtle disparagement, befitting considering her Bitch in Sheep's Clothing nature.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's a very beautiful woman and many people comment on how pretty she is in her first two episodes.
  • Omniglot: Implied; in her second episode, "Nosy Meets Tigerlily", she has a conversation with Angel and is able to fully understand and respond to her Tantalog already despite having apparently just met her. She also responds to Stitch's "Meega, nala kweesta!" with Tantalog insults of her own later in the same episode.
    Pleakley: It's extraordinary! How could you be so fluent in Tantalog already?
    Tigerlily: I try to be a good listener, and I'm lucky enough to have a pretty good ear for languages.
    Pleakley: Whoa! You're an international– no, you're an intergalactical one-of-a-kind!
  • Promotion to Parent: This may have justified the Defrosting Ice Queen trope as she needs to be a bit nicer and more caring now, now that they're living with her.
  • Tough Love: She expressed that this is the reason why she's so tough to Yuna.

Voiced by: Hitomi Hase (Japanese), Steve Blum (English)

A small, mysterious, flying light purple morphing alien creature who was introduced at the beginning of the second season. She serves as a pet to the main characters, living with Jumba and Pleakley.

  • Big Eater: Despite her size, she rivals Stitch in this department.
  • Jerkass to One: She does not get along well with Stitch, who has issues with anyone cuter than him, and thus messes with him often, especially by eating his food.
  • Pokémon Speak: All she ever says is "Boo goo!", which becomes her name after she joins Yuna and Stitch's family.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Look at this little alien! Really though, she's just there to up the show's cuteness factor. It's Japan, after all.
  • Running Gag: She has a tendency to trick Stitch into looking away, then flying around behind him to eat his food.
  • Satellite Character: There's not really much of a point to her other than to be a pet to the main cast.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: She has the ability to change her shape. However, she only did this in her debut, when she disguised herself as a mosquito, and "The Return of 627", when she changed into a parachute to protect Jumba, Pleakley, Yuna, and herself from falling.

Seasons 1 and 2 (Stitch! and Stitch! ~The Mischievous Alien's Great Adventure~)

    Gramma (Obaa)
Voiced by: Hisako Kyoda (Japanese), Gwendoline Yeo (English)

Yuna's grandmother and guardian. She believes in the existence of Yōkai and is friends with them.

  • The Bus Came Back: After being dropped in season three, she returns in that season's Christmas Episode "A Very Stinky Christmas" after Stitch, pretending to be Yuna, invites her and Yuna's father over to Yuna and Tigerlily's home in New Town for Christmas Eve.
  • Cool Old Lady: While she never does anything badass or action-y, you could respect her wisdom.
  • Older and Wiser: An elderly woman with lots of wisdom that help Yuna, Stitch, and others.
  • Put on a Bus: She was dropped in the third season. It's explained that she's become too elderly to continue raising her granddaughter, hence why Yuna and Stitch now live with Tigerlily.
  • Unnamed Parent: Grandparent in this case; she's only ever known as Yuna's grandmother.
  • Vague Age: She's old. Not specified how old.

    Yuna's father 
Voiced by: Kōichi Yamadera (Japanese), Keith Silverstein (English)

Yuna's ever-supportive marine biologist dad. He works away from the island and thus his daughter, and unfortunately has the habit of bailing from get-togethers at the last minute.

  • The Bus Came Back: Though he didn't make many appearances in the Madhouse seasons, to begin with, he returns in the third season's Christmas Episode "A Very Stinky Christmas" after Stitch, pretending to be Yuna, invites him and Yuna's grandmother over to Yuna and Tigerlily's home in New Town for Christmas Eve.
  • Daddy Didn't Show: Guilty of this because of his long-distance job. However, he makes the effort to see Yuna in "Dads Day" and "A Very Stinky Christmas" thanks to Stitch, and he also joins her in "Meega Going to Disneyland!".
  • Geeky Turn-On: His love for anything related to his job as a marine biologist.
  • Unnamed Parent: Only called "Yuna's dad".

Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi (Japanese), Colleen O'Shaughnessey (English)

A little yokai who is friends with Yuna and Stitch.

  • A Dog Named "Dog": Kijimunaa is a kind of yokai.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Kijimagii. Practically, just a girlified version of Kijimunaa himself.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": He's a kijimuna (one a) named Kijimunaa (two a's).
  • Cowardly Lion: He's easily scared of a lot of things, but should his friends (yokai, human, or alien) or the island get into serious danger, he will stand up for them.
  • Eyes Out of Sight: Almost always. He actually has two small eyes above his prominent nostrils, but his bushy hair covers them almost all the time. His eyes are only ever seen when he gets particularly scared and is in close-up.
  • Put on a Bus: He's removed from the show when Yuna and Stitch move to Okinawa New Town in the third season.
  • Redhead In Green: He has bushy red hair and wears a green leafy skirt.
  • Youkai: He's the most recurring one on the show, becoming a close friend to Yuna and Stitch.

    Taro (Tarou) 
Voiced by: Tomoe Hanba (Japanese), Stephanie Sheh (English)

One of Yuna's friends who she always helps out or protects if he is bullied by Penny, Kenny, Marvin, and Ted.

  • Lovable Coward: No matter how scared he feels, he always has someone who supports him to try his best.
  • Nerd Glasses: He's a shy, timid, bespectacled boy who loves to play video games.
  • Shrinking Violet: For a boy, he's much too shy.

    Sandra "Sasha" (Sae)
Voiced by: Tomiko Orikasa (Japanese), Melissa Fahn (English)

A new student at Yuna's school and one of Yuna's friends. She joins the show in season two.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Despite being known for her sweet personality, she is able to take down two of the Experiments that attack in the episode "Meega Going to Disneyland!" alongside Yuna and Penny.
  • Dub Name Change: Her name was changed from "Sae" to "Sandra" in the English dub, with "Sasha" established as her nickname in the dub.
  • The Fashionista: A mild characteristic of hers. She's this when introduced. It helps since her mom's a fashion designer, as she stated.
  • New Transfer Student: Originally from Kobe, she joins Yuna's school in the second season.
  • Nice Girl: She has a sweet personality.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly to Yuna's tomboy.

    Penny (Piko)
Voiced by: Miyako Ito (Japanese), Meghan Strange (English)

Yuna's classmate and rival who always makes fun of Yuna and Stitch.

  • Dub Name Change: Her name was changed from "Piko" to "Penny" in the English dub.
  • Limited Wardrobe: For a self-proclaimed fashion queen, her clothes are sort of plain but still stylish. Lampshaded by Yuna when she told her that she wears the same pink outfit every day.
  • Rich Bitch: She's the daughter of a wealthy businessman who owns the island's pineapple factory and a luxury hotel, and isn't nice to others, especially Yuna and Stitch.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Of Yuna.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To Mertle Edmonds, except she's blonde and wears more pink.

    Kenny (Kouji) 
Voiced by: Yuka Nishigaki (Japanese), Derek Stephen Prince (English)

Penny's big brother, often the butt of her many commands but is no better than her.

  • Butt-Monkey: He and his friends are often bossed around by his younger sister. He just had no control over her.
  • Dub Name Change: His name was changed from "Kouji" to "Kenny" in the English dub, making his English name rhyme with his sister's English name. Oddly though, he actually maintains his original name in the English translation of the manga.
  • Jerkass: Despite getting bossed around by his sister, he's a bully to others anyway.

    Marvin and Ted (Masa and Taka)
Marvin on the left and Ted on the right.
Marvin voiced by: Yuki Ishii (Japanese), Kari Wahlgren (English)
Ted voiced by: Hitomi Hase (Japanese), Laura Bailey (English)

Two friends of Kenny's who are always bossed around by Penny.

  • A Day in the Limelight: Ted gets this in the season two Christmas episode "We Wishy You a Washy Christmas" when he gets kicked out of Penny's posse after he accidentally trips and drops things on her.
  • Dub Name Change: Their names were respectively changed from "Masa" and "Taka" to "Marvin" and "Ted" in the English dub.
  • Terrible Trio: With Kenny, they serve as Penny's bullying cronies.
  • Those Two Guys: They're usually seen together with Penny and Kenny, getting bossed around by them.

Season 3 and post-series specials (Stitch! ~Best Friends Forever~ and Stitch! New Specials)

Voiced by: Romi Park (Japanese), Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (English)

An evil alien woman who is the main antagonist of the third season. She is in a partnership with Dr. Jacques von Hämsterviel to get the power cell that is inside of Stitch.

  • Big Bad: Despite her partnership with Dr. Hämsterviel, it's very clear through her actions and torture of him that she takes over his role as the primary antagonist.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: What she gives to Hämsterviel every time he fails.
  • Expy: Queen Beryl, anyone?
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Light green skin to be specific.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: She does not look like any of the aliens previously seen in the franchise. Whereas all the previous aliens resemble anthropomorphized Earth animals, she looks more like a big-eared humanoid woman and doesn't seem to resemble any non-human animal creature.
  • Remember the New Guy?: According to the show, Jumba, Hämsterviel, and Delia have known each other for quite some time, with Hämsterviel even "recalling" some past moments in their lives. The "Stitch's Birthday" two-parter establishes their apparent backstory that led to their break-up.
  • Unusual Ears: Possesses a pair of Pointy Ears that are so ridiculously long that they start to resemble wings, though she is incapable of using them to fly. (Though, coincidentally, her experiment Dark End can.)
  • Slouch of Villainy: She's most often seen slouching on her throne when speaking with and/or torturing Hämsterviel via video chat.

    Jessica (Reika)
Voiced by: Yōko Hikasa (Japanese), Kate Higgins (English)

Yuna's recent classmate and rival at her new school in Okinawa New Town. She has a knack for telling rather lame puns and jokes.

    Toriko and Makiko
Toriko voiced by: Mai Katagari (Japanese), Ali Hillis (English)
Makiko voiced by: Komatsuna Sakato (Japanese), Laura Bailey (English)

Jessica's two friends who, by themselves, are very close with each other.

  • A Day in the Limelight: Toriko in "The Petite Queen", when she qualifies for the titular contest by accident, garnering more attention than Jessica. Makiko also gets some of this in the same episode, as she was upset when she found out that Toriko used their magic box for her talent act in the competition, and decided to get back at her by having Jessica perform magic tricks for her talent act.
  • Girl Posse: Forms one with Jessica.
  • Friendly Enemy: One of them (Toriko, actually) is pretty nice, once she is gotten to know with. Her friend seems to be this too. In other words, despite their association with the Alpha Bitch, none of them are that bad.
  • Those Two Girls: They're normally there to uncomfortably react to Jessica's puns.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: They have the looks but somewhat both act like regular girls.

    Hiroman (Takumi)
Voiced by: Hiroaki Miura (Japanese), Sam Riegel (English)

A popular soccer player of the Okinawa New Town school's soccer team. He is implied to have a mini-crush on Yuna, much to Jessica's annoyance.

  • Bishōnen: The oft source of bishie sparkles.
  • Big Sister Bully: He has two, named Mitsuki and Hazuki. He's often bossed around by them and currently blackmailed with an Unmanly Secret (see below).
  • Punny Name: His English dub name might be a play on "hero man". It's just a mere coincidence that his Japanese voice actor is named Hiroaki.
  • School Idol: He's the most attractive boy at Yuna and Jessica's school, accentuated by his hair flick.
  • Unmanly Secret: He has dressed in a Magical Girl-esque costume, three years straight for Halloween.

    Dolores (Toyoda-san)
Voiced by: Yumiko Kobayashi (Japanese), Colleen O'Shaughnessey (English)

An honor student of the Okinawa New Town school and Yuna's classmate and friend.

    Dark End
Voiced by: Unknown (Japanese), Roger Craig Smith (English)

A genetic experiment who was made by Delia to be much stronger than Stitch. Since Jumba did not make this experiment, this experiment has no number and is not one of Stitch's "cousins", so this one stays here instead of over on the Experiments' character sheet.

  • Affably Evil: Dark End is quite polite. Of course, this one has no problem with killing their enemies.
  • The Juggernaut: You can compare this one to 627. Even with other experiments helping Stitch fight against this one, Dark End still overwhelmed Stitch easily.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Can mutate to grow a second pair of arms.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Despite their adorable looks, Dark End is a very dangerous experiment. The main page goes over why in detail.
  • One-Shot Character: Although Dark End officially debuted in the penultimate episode "Boss", this experiment really only appears in the final non-special episode named after them.
  • She's a Man in Japan: Dark End is female in the Japanese original, but male in English and other dubs.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: In the loosest sense of "family", Dark End takes a lot of design traits from their creator Delia, especially with the large ears.
  • Superpower Lottery: Was designed with a lot of powers, not unlike 627.
  • Unusual Ears: Has very large nearly-triangular ears much like their creator.
