Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero - Main characters - Netflix
Penn Zero (voiced by Thomas Middleditch): The main protagonist, a part-time hero and the son of two full-time heroes. Penn lives with his Aunt Rose and Uncle Chuck due to Rippen trapping his parents in a dangerous dimension known as the “Most Dangerous World Imaginable”, and goes on part-time hero missions with his best friends Sashi and Boone. While Penn is the recognized leader of the group, he often asks advice from his parents by communicating with them through a device called a MUHU (Multi-Universe Hologram Uplink), and finds himself needing counsel from his friends as well. Boone Wiseman (voiced by Adam DeVine): Penn's friend, and a part-time wise man. Boone often bewilders his friends with his unconventional methods and thought processes, and at times they find him frustrating. While he is not the brightest, however, Boone's unorthodox style has proven effective in helping his friends complete missions. Boone was at one point a victim of severe aquaphobia, but later overcame it while visiting an underwater world in “Chicken or Fish?”. His parents, like Penn's, were part-time heroes. Sashi Kobayashi (voiced by Tania Gunadi): Penn's Japanese American friend (later girlfriend), and a part-time sidekick. Sashi is the only girl on Penn's team, and is fairly tomboyish and aggressive, with a violent attitude. The forms Sashi takes often provoke teasing from her teammates, but it doesn't stop her from proving how tough she is. Sashi is often a voice of reason and understanding despite her demeanor. Sashi wears futuristic glasses that the gang refer to as “the Specs,” which can project holographic displays that inform the trio about their missions. Until the season 2 episode “The Kobayashis”, Sashi's parents were unaware of her job as part-time sidekick to help save worlds, and thought that she worked at the local “Fish Stick on a Stick” restaurant-which is actually the headquarters of the part-time villains. Phyllis (voiced by Sam Levine): A grouchy, often irritable Slavic woman who maintains the Multi Universe Transprojector (MUT) used by Penn and his team to travel to other worlds and fight evil. The MUT is located in an abandoned movie theater called The Odyssey, which is right next door to the part-time villains' base in Fish Stick on a Stick. It is revealed during a flashback in “Zap One” that it was Phyllis who chose Penn's parents to be part-time heroes, and chose Penn as well. She also has a pet bear named Karen for security. In the series finale, it is revealed she is the good half of a powerful entity called the Guardian.
