The Sushi Pack
The eponymous pack of the show.
Tropes associated with the whole pack:
- Achilles' Heel: Their only weakness is heat. In Wasabi's case, it is extreme cold temperatures.
- Aren't You Forgetting Someone?: In "Sushis of a Certain Stature", the Pack think that Wharf City is putting up a statue of them, It is actually for Kato Platypus, who was active many years prior to the Pack's existence.
- Color-Coded Characters: Tako is blue, Maguro is purple, Ikura is orange, Kani is pink, and Wasabi is yellow.
- Easy Impersonation: In "The Wrong Sushi", Four members of the pack (minus Ikura) are convicted of a crime that they didn't do; the presented video evidence showing was actually the Legion of Low tide painted in a way to look like the pack.
- Every Episode Ending: Every episode ends with the Pack jumping into the air and shouting "Sushi Pack!"
- Only exception to this trope is the episode "Lights on, Lights Off", when all of them, including Unagi, who had helped them save the day, shouted "Go Planet Earth!"
- Five-Man Band: There are two members who qualify as The Smart Guy: Kani, the Genius Bruiser, and Tako, who occasionally puts himself in a 'thinking state'.
- Repeating so the Audience Can Hear: Used a few times by the Pack to translate Wasabi's dialogue for the viewers.
- Voiced by: DJ Rick Adams.
- British Stuffiness: Averted. Despite having a slight British accent, he's far from formal.
- Comically Missing the Point:Maguro: Oh yes. And chocolate is made by tiny gnomes inside of hollow rocks.Tako: Gee, I didn't know that!
- Eyepatch of Power: He's always seen wearing it, even in a flashback when he was just hatched
- Everything's Squishier with Cephalopods: He's an octopus, after all.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: With Kani, he's the blue boy.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Thinks very highly of himself and his art despite having moderate recognition at best.

- Nice Hat: He sometimes wears a beret and artist smock in some episodes
- Voiced by: Tara Strong
- And I'm the Queen of Sheba: Has this in "Sweet Tooth" While spying on Sugar Jimmy alongside Tako (who doesn't see the fact that she is being sarcastic), The main antagonist claims in a way that his chocolate bars lack in nutritional value:Sugar Jimmy: Most snack foods are manufactured by smoke-belching factories, but Sugar Jimmy Golden Gobble Globble Bars are handmade by magical leprechauns, as they dance on a beautiful rainbow.Maguro: Oh yes. And chocolate is made by tiny gnomes inside of hollow rocks.Tako: Gee, I didn't know that!(Kani snickers at this, and Maguro has a sweatdrop appear on the side of her head.)
- Barrier Warrior: She can use her psychic powers in this way.
- Care-Bear Stare:She can use her telepathic powers to share zen thoughts when an antagonist needs to calm down (as used in "Satellightning"). She uses it on her own teammates to make them follow a course of action they didn't approve of (in "The Sign of the Tuna").

- Levitating Lotus Position: She is seen doing this usually every episode. Her humming most of the time helps this trope in a way.
- Off-Model: Some animation errors have her rather mixed-up. Watch "Satellightning" or "Go with the Glow" for some examples.
- Only Sane Woman: Well, when you work with these sushis...
- Out-of-Character Moment: Though she is usually 'in tune with her inner tuna', she can actually lash out some of her temper. Examples of this are in "But Is It Art?" and "Near Miss", respectively."If I wasn't so in tune with my inner tuna, I'D GO BARRACUDA ON HIM!""I'M NOT A CHARITY CASE! In fact, I can do this myself! That way, Tako will be able to hog all the praise!! STAY OUT OF MY WAY!!" (Runs up a flight of stairs in rage)
