Peter Pan

  • Adaptational Personality Change: Unlike some of his other incarnations, Peter Pan here feels guilty about driving Wendy away and tries to apologize for how he treated her.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He’s a silly and mischievous kid. However, he gets serious when his friends are in danger. He also told Tinkerbell to leave when he finds out that she tricked the Lost Boys into shooting at Wendy.

  • Never Grew Up: Peter is a young boy who literally refuses to grow up.

Wendy Darling

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Wendy is generally a sweet girl. However, there are times where she hits her limits. Peter found out the hard way when he made her bake multiple cakes and later told her to not worry about them and the time where he promised to make her a dress out of flowers only for him to want everyone to play with giant lizards.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Like the original story, Wendy is protective of her brothers and looks out for them when they’re in Never Land. In the first episode, she pleads to Captain Hook that he let her brothers go. She also went out looking for Michael when he was captured by the pirates.
  • Damsel out of Distress: The Wendy of this adaptation is more Hot-Blooded than the standard portrayal. She yells at Hook when he has her prisoner, almost manages to go Talking the Monster to Death on him (only stepping on the wrong spot at the worst time possible interrupts her "The Reason You Suck" Speech to him), befriends Princess Luna in spite of her origins, and ultimately it's thanks to her Heroic Sacrifice that Luna turns back to the side of good.

  • Defiant Captive: Whenever she’s captured by Hook, she refuses to comply with him and does her best to resist him even at the cost of her own life.
  • Demonic Possession: Wendy suffers from this in Episode 28 due to the bracelet that is meant for Princess Luna.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She has blonde hair and is very sweet. She was quite forgiving of Tinkerbell for trying to kill her and tried to get Peter to forgive her as well.
  • Pink Is Feminine: She spends the entire series wearing a pink-and-white dress and she’s shown to be quite feminine.
  • Tsundere: Wendy is very much a Type B. She's the most maternal and sweet girl, like any other of her incarnations, but this one also gives her a Hot-Blooded side that makes her downright scary when she gets mad.

John Darling

  • Cowardly Lion: John’s major flaw is that he gets scared easily. This becomes especially problematic when the pirates show up with a magical torch, which is harmful to fairies. When the pirates demand to know where the key to the Black Mirror is and are torturing Tink with the torch, John caves and hands them to key.
  • Endearingly Dorky: He’s awkward and shy, but Tiger Lily finds his awkwardness endearing.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: With Tiger Lily, as Tiger Lily's Action Girl and Tsundere tendencies are played up, while John's scholarly leanings are emphasized.
  • Nice Hat: John wears a top hat throughout the series.
  • Opposites Attract: The meek and cowardly John develops a crush on the outspoken and brave Tiger Lily.
  • Properly Paranoid: In episode 15, he suspects Cecco of being a spy for the pirates when he asked to join Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. His suspicions are confirmed when he finds Cecco drawing a sketch of the hideout.
  • Shrinking Violet: John is shown as very awkward and shy. It doesn't help that he has a crush on Tiger Lily, and since she's a massive Tsundere there it takes him a while to impress her.

Michael Darling

  • Age Lift: He's older than his original toddler-aged self.
  • Children Are Innocent: Michael is the youngest of the main characters and is blissfully naive about a lot of things. When Cecco pretended to be on the kids’ side, Michael explained to Cecco how to get past the inner mechanism in order to enter the treehouse.
  • Determinator: When Wendy was sick, Michael went into the mountains to retrieve ice for her fever. While he was scared by Tink’s warning is about a snow demon, he was still willing to go for his sister’s sake.
  • Sweet Tooth: Michael’s happy thoughts center around sweets. He also carries around a pouch full of candy. For his birthday, he received a piece of candy as a present.

Tinkerbell

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She acts nice and friendly, but she’s actually manipulative, envious, mischievous, and deceptive.
  • Cassandra Truth: Due to her lying in previous episodes, the Lost Boys don’t believe Tink at first when she tells them that Peter was captured by Hook and was going to be killed.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She immediately dislikes Wendy for getting so close to Peter and yanks on her hair twice because Wendy kissed Peter on the cheek. Later on, she agrees to bring Wendy to Hook due to her jealousy of Peter liking Wendy.
  • Disney Death: She dies in episode 21, but is revived thanks to Tiger Lily.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Tinkerbell initially leaves Peter because Wendy, her perceived rival, felt sorry for her and wanted Peter and the Lost Boys to forgive her attempted murder on Wendy. She considered Wendy’s pity to be more of an offense than Peter telling her to leave.
  • Easily Forgiven: Wendy immediately forgives Tinkerbell for trying to kill her and she tries to get the others to forgive her as well. Peter eventually forgives her, primarily because Tink warned him about the pirates approaching his hideout. Wendy forgives Tink once again when the latter confessed to her brief partnership with Hook.

  • Interspecies Romance: She’s a fairy who has a one-sided crush on the human boy Peter.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She obviously dislikes Wendy and is rude to her and tries to hurt her, but she is loyal to Peter and will come to his aid if he’s in trouble. She also forms a friendship with Michael and accompanied him when he went to the Snow Mountain to get ice for Wendy when she was sick.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She tricks Tootles into shooting Wendy, claiming she’s a demon bird. Later, when she’s working with Hook, she acts as though Peter is in danger in order to lure Wendy into a trap.

  • Never My Fault: She refuses to take responsibility for lying to the Lost Boys and tricking them into attacking Wendy.
  • Odd Friendship: The mischievous and deceitful Tink forms a bond with the sweet and innocent Michael. When he wanted to go to the Snow Mountain to get ice for his sister, Tink accompanied him despite her warnings of a snow demon that lived in the mountains.
  • Redemption Equals Death: After spending half the series hating Wendy for her bond with Peter and Tink pairing up with Hook, Tink gives her life to save Peter from a guillotine trap in Hook’s castle.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: After she’s revived, she becomes a lot nicer to Wendy and the Lost Boys.
  • Yandere: She’s sweet and supportive of Peter, but she’s also incredibly possessive and gets jealous easily. Her jealousy gets so bad that she tries to have her rival killed so it can just be her and Peter again. She later gets over her jealousy and even becomes friends with Wendy for real.

  • Would Hurt a Child: Hook doesn’t have any qualms about attacking or trying to kill children.

Mr. Smee

  • Punch-Clock Villain: Even though he’s part of Hook’s crew, he’s quite friendly towards Peter’s friends. When Hook was approaching him and two of the Lost Boys, he urged the boys to climb over the rocks to escape Hook.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Unlike the rest of Hook’s crew, Smee has no desire to hurt children.

Tiger Lily

Princess Luna

  • Alternate Identity Amnesia: Once she becomes Sinista’s successor, Luna doesn’t remember Peter Pan or any of the other main characters. She doesn’t even remember Hook or his crew, making it easier for them to trick her into believing they’re her allies.

  • Identical Stranger: In her first episode, John and the Lost Boys comment on how similar she looks to Tiger Lily.
  • Killing Your Alternate Self: Luna’s evil half tries to convince Wendy to kill Luna’s child self, which would have doomed Luna forever. When Wendy refused and was attacked by evil Luna, good Luna retaliated and killed her evil half instead, thus freeing her.

  • Non-Indicative Name: Luna's a princess of light, not darkness.
