Kim Possible

Kim Possible is a high-school cheerleader and crime fighter, who saves the world on a regular basis while dealing with the normal challenges of a teenage life, such as winning cheer competitions, turning in her homework on time, and developing a love life. Her full name is Kimberly Ann Possible.[1]

She and Ron Stoppable have been best friends since kindergarten. As they grow up, Ron is her indispensable sidekick on all her missions. The two of them end up developing romantic feelings for each other and begin dating during their senior year.

Kim's speech is peppered with not-so-typical teen slang such as "So not the drama" and "No big" ("no big deal"), as well as the series' catchphrase, "What's the sitch?" (slang for "situation").

She is known to have a fiery and demanding personality, which often got in the way of her work, but she was basically an intelligent, level-headed young lady and always managed to come out on top in the end and save the day. Kim Possible is voiced by Christy Carlson Romano. [2]

Ron Stoppable

Voiced by Will Friedle, [3] Ron and Kim have been best friends since pre-k. He also serves as her sidekick whenever they go on missions. Even though Ron is depicted as a clumsy goofball teenager, he has saved the world on his own. [4] [5] [6] [7] His name was a play on the word "unstoppable." He is not as popular as Kim and is often ridiculed by his classmates, most notably by Bonnie. He joined the football team in his senior year, [8] having previously served as team mascot [1]. He has a younger adopted sister from Japan named Hana.[9] His favorite restaurant is Bueno Nacho and is the creator of the Naco. He is extremely afraid of monkeys, and small bugs, among (many) other things. Ron is an exceptionally brilliant villain when he is turned evil.

Rufus

Ron's pet naked mole rat, considered a member of the team — in fact, he often proved to be a good deal more competent than Ron, or even Kim on occasion. Ron got Rufus because he could only have a hairless pet due to his father's allergies[10]. At first, Kim was disgusted by Rufus, but later in the show, she liked him and often even relied on his help.

Rufus is largely anthropomorphic, in that he can stand upright, and is able to see clearly. Rufus is capable of understanding English and of abbreviated speech.

For the sake of Rufus as a character, the show ignores the reality of literal naked mole rats, who are nearly completely blind, rely upon large colony environments and specific temperatures, and cannot survive individually as pets. This has led to the disappointment of many fans who have sought a pet naked mole rat and have found that not only are they unable to be pets, but look and act very little like Rufus in real life.

Wade Load

Wade is a 10-year-old genius in the beginning (but now 12 in the final season) who runs Kim Possible's website, supplies her with her various gadgets, gives Kim her missions through her "Kimmunicator", arranges transportation for her, and even went on missions with Kim on rare occasions[12][13] He often relayed information to her, searched for information for her, and performed programming feats. Kim stated that he completed his high school and college education in eight months[14]. He spent his time in his bedroom in his parents's house, in front of the computer with the lights off. He was a master of the role-playing game Everlot.[15] In one episode, he developed a crush on Monique immediately after seeing her in person for the first time, leading him to create a love ray and try to force her to be his girlfriend.[16] In the end, he learned his lesson and quickly recovered from his minor heartbreak as he gets a crush on a genius girl sitting in Bueno Nacho, but it was clear that this didn't work out, as she had created a love ray herself, much to Wade's chagrin. Wade invented Kim's battle suit. For the first two seasons, and most of the third season, Wade is never seen outside of his room, until the episode "Team Impossible," after Team Impossible overloaded his computer system with a power spike, he personally arrived on scene, and vented on the three members of the team. In the fourth season, Wade ventured out of his room to give Kim new inventions, and on at least one occasion, to return Kim's battle suit to her, after repairs, and upgrades were made to it. A running gag throughout the series is that Wade has secretly placed a tracking microchip on Ron, although he tries to avoid answering when questioned about this.

  • Wade's name is a play on "wide load" because of his weight. In A Sitch in Time -- Future Wade, now a muscular giant and leader of the Anti-Shego resistance, is voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan.

Villains

Dr. Drakken

A blue-skinned mad-scientist and super-villain obsessed with world domination, and with proving that he is a genius. Out of all of Kim's enemies, he and Shego are considered her arch ones. His real name is Drew Theodore P. Lipsky and is dearly loved by his mother who often embarrasses him. When he was in college he was humiliated by his friends, one of which was Kim's father, Dr. James Possible. He ended up dropping out and becoming a villian.

Although clearly a genius when it comes to science and schemes, Drakken is totally clueless when it comes to making them work right and his plans are often mocked by Shego. Even though Drakken claims to be all evil, he has at times showed his good side and has even helped Kim save the world at times. Even though he frequently encounters Kim and Ron, he can never remember Ron's name and is always extremely surprised when he first sees Kim as if he has never met her before, even though he doesn't know why.

Shego

Shego is perhaps Kim's most dangerous enemy and Dr. Drakken's sidekick. She's wanted in several countries (11 as noted by Wade when he was giving Kim background information on her the first time Kim and Shego meet). She wears a green and black jumpsuit and is highly skilled in martial arts.

Shego used to be a good guy alongside her brothers. All of them were hit by this mysterious multi colored meteor when they were younger that gave them each superpowers and a special glow. Shego's glow is green and is emitted through her hands. It can burn, melt, and even cut through the strongest of metals. Most of Shego and Kim's confrontations result in hand to hand combat. She constantly taunts Kim about her lack of fashion sense or whatever else she can think of. Her nicknames for Kim are "Kimmy", "Princess", and "Pumpkin".

Shego also has a degree in child education as revealed when she was a substitute for Kim and Ron's class after she was temporarily turned good. At that time, she and Kim actually ended up becoming friends. Even though they are sworn enemies, Shego has shown to actually care about Kim deep down. She has saved Kim's life numerous times, claiming that she is the only one allowed to end Kim. In the series finale, Shego teams up with Kim, Ron, and Drakken to save the world. It's hinted in that same episode that she and Drakken become romantically involved.

Monkey Fist

Born as Lord Monty Fiske, a British nobleman and world famous explorer and archaeologist, who became obsessed with monkeys. After training to become a master of Tai Sheng Pek Kwar (Monkey Kung Fu), he also spent his family's fortune on radical genetic procedures and experimental surgeries to replace his hands and feet with those of a monkey (in the season 2 episode "Partners," it is revealed that the procedures were performed by DNAmy, who developed a crush on Fisk).

After tricking Kim into helping him steal a quartet of mystical idols, he used them to expose himself to "Mystical Monkey Power" and styled himself, Monkey Fist.[6]

Unlike the other villains, he considers Ron Stoppable a worthy opponent rather than a clownish sidekick, since Ron and Rufus are the only other persons besides himself exposed to Mystical Monkey Power. In truth, Ron considers Monkey Fist his archenemy. Ron once commented that he is the only one of their regular foes who regularly remembers Ron's name.

Besides his martial arts skills (greatly enhanced by the increased agility of his simian hands and feet), Monkey Fist commands an army of trained ninja monkeys. He is obsessed with increasing his power through various mystical artifacts and prophecies.

In "Oh No, Yono" his attempt to kidnap Ron's adopted sister, Hana, is thwarted and he is encased in stone. As of the finale episode, "Graduation," he is still encased in stone, thus making him the only villain on the series to have been "killed off," in a manner of speaking.

Duff Killigan

The self-proclaimed "World's Deadliest Golfer", he was banned from every golf course in the world, even miniature golf for excessive displays of temper. His weapons are his golf clubs and exploding golf balls. He speaks with a Scottish accent.

Seniors

Señor Senior, Sr.

Senior is a retired multi-billionaire who at Ron's accidental suggestion, took up villainy as a hobby to occupy his retirement years[17]. Many of his schemes revolve around acquiring power or influence for his son, Junior.

He is a parody of Julio Iglesias.

Señor Senior, Jr.

Señor Sr.'s son and (sometimes reluctant) accomplice, Junior is a spoiled man-child more interested in parties and looking fabulous than in his father's criminal plans. He once had a brief crush on Kim Possible because of the zodiac-like principles of Animology.[18] He has expressed a desire to be a boy-band singer[19] and has been tutored in villainy by Shego[20]. He has been dating Kim's classmate Bonnie Rockwaller.

Junior is a parody of Enrique Iglesias.

Professor Dementor

A mad scientist. While he is a threat to Kim and the world, he seems more determined to show up his rival, Dr. Drakken. Ever since he was beaten by Kim's Battle Suit, he has been trying to get his hands on it to conquer the Earth. He tries to get the suit in the episodes "Ill-Suited" and "Larry's Birthday".

DNAmy

Originally Amy Hall. A bio-geneticist and an avid collector of Cuddle Buddies (small stuffed toys similar to Beanie Babies, except they are a cross between two separate animals, her favorite being an Otterfly, a butterfly and an otter). In her obsession, she created mutant animal hybrids ("life-size, living Cuddle Buddies!"). She, at one point, had a crush on Drakken, but now has a crush on Monkey Fist, on whom she performed his trademark genetic mutation. She has a bubbly, clingy personality.

Gill

Real name: Gil Moss. A former camper at Camp Wannaweep. When Ron attended Camp Wannaweep, he swapped Gill his afternoon swim, for arts and crafts. Gill tells us in the episode "Sink or Swim" that the lake where he swam so much was polluted, and caused him to mutate into a fish-type mutant. At the end of "Sink or Swim" Gill is taken away to be cured in a fish tank. The scene where he is pulled along the lake is featured in the Kim Possible title sequence. In a later episode "Return to Camp Wannaweep" Ron is thrust together with Gill once more, when Kim's cheerleading camp is re-located. Gill is an opposing mascot, and is cured of his mutation. Gil (his name is changed back as well) tries to befriend Ron, but Ron follows him around not trusting him, until he spoils the surprise of Gil's mascot costume. The camp turns against Ron, until one night, Ron once again follows Gill (changed back again) in his search for the last grotto of polluted water. Gill finds it, mutates, and Ron makes an amazing decision. Following in the footsteps of his second most hated foe, Monkey Fist, Ron jumps in too and mutates into a beaver. They end up fighting at the clown camp, Kim and Bonnie tie Gill up and he is sent away again.

The Bebes

A trio of hive-minded, female killer robots. They were built by Drakken, but have since gone rogue. They made Kim's cheer-squad rival Bonnie Rockwaller their "Queen Bebe" even though Bonnie didn't know it at the time. Kim destroyed them all (by using "super speed shoes") and saved Bonnie in the end.

Motor Ed

Dr. Drakken's cousin, notorious for his fleet of personal custom motocycles, his distinctive mullet hairstyle, his playing of the air guitar, and repetitive use of the word "seriously!" Despite his seeming stupidity, he is actually a mechanical genius with a natural understanding of engines of all kinds, including rocket motors.

Though he is technically a villain because of his destructive actions and disregard for the law, he seems to have little interest in anything grander than road trips and "tricking out" his various rides.

He has an eye for "babes" and constantly hits on Shego, who wants nothing to do with him.

His name is a pun on the word motorhead - a term used to describe people who are heavily interested in cars and especially engines and possibly on the heavy metal band Motörhead, the members of which use a stereotypical "heavy metal biker" fashion.

Camille Léon

An heiress and socialite who becomes a villain after being cut off from her family fortune. After having experimental surgery, she has the ability to shape shift ("Trading Faces"). Her name is a play on the word chameleon. She is a parody of Paris Hilton, with her appearance (such as her distinctive, long blond hair) and lifestyle (paparazzi, tiny pet, wealth, both been to prison). There also elements of Sharpay Evans from the High School Musical movies (also played by Tisdale). Camille is friends with fellow celebs, Britina, MC Honey, Starlette, and the Holsen twins (parody of Olsen twins).

Supporting characters

Allies

Monique

One of the most visible recurring characters of Kim Possible. So far, she has remained without surname, possibly as a nod to her voice actress, Raven-Symoné, who is generally known by just her first name. The character’s design has evolved through the seasons, with the most notable change being to her eyes, which pass from small pupils to wider and fuller brown eyes.

Monique is smart and hip. She usually speaks in a style which Kim described as "Monique-speak". Monique also likes to talk in acronyms, such as "NBF" (new best friend) and "GF" (girlfriend). Little is known about her family or personal life, but she has complained of having bad luck with boyfriends and she has a brother who got her hooked on wrestling.

She is one of Kim's closest friends, giving her level-headed advice about school and life, and serves as a good counterbalance to Ron's out-of-touch eccentricities. On a few occasions, Monique has assisted Kim on her missions, even though she lacks fighting skills (Kim Possible, episode 34, A Sitch in Time, Part One: Present), though it has been show later that her fighting skills have improved. In the Future episode she is voiced by Vivica A. Fox even though she has changed little in appearance.

Steven Barkin

School teacher with a running gag that he is the substitute teacher of practically every subject at Middleton High, even subjects he is not particularly familiar with, with Ron once even asking if the school had any other teachers since he appears to be the only teacher there. He frequently chaperones at field trips and school events. Mr. Barkin refers to students by their last names. He works at "Smarty Mart," was the football coach, spent two years of his senior year in high school, and is the son of Franklin Barkin, who bore a strong resemblance to Benjamin Franklin. He is also revealed to have served in a war (presumably the Vietnam War), where he achieved the rank of Lieutenant. His military service would also explain his strict no-nonsense attitude. Mr. Barkin is known to re-grow facial hair at an accelerated rate (Fashion Victim). He also developed a crush on Shego while she was Miss Go (Stop Team Go).

Middleton High School cheerleaders

Along with Bonnie, the other main cheerleaders in Middleton High included: Tara (long wavy blond hair), Crystal (short wavy brown hair), Jessica (long straight blond hair), Liz (short wavy red hair with purple headband), Hope (long black hair, no mole), and Marcella (long black hair, mole).

Rivals

Bonnie Rockwaller

Kim's classmate at Middleton High School and her rival in almost every respect. Bonnie has a dismissive and superior attitude towards Kim, Ron, and people in general, whom she considers to be beneath her. She has cultivated an ivory tower position at the top of the high school "food chain," a position challenged by Kim's leading of the cheer squad and general popularity. Bonnie previously dated the football team's quarterback, Brick Flagg, for the status bestowed by this relationship; she later dated Hirotaka and Señor Senior Junior. Bonnie has two older sisters named Connie and Lonnie that frequently pick on her, saying one of them got the beauty and the other got the brains and Bonnie got the rest. In the episode Downhill from season 1, Bonnie's mom makes her first and only appearance. Bonnie is humiliated when her mom calls her "Pumpkin" and "Bon-Bon". Ron, however, is highly amused. In the end of the series, Bonnie is revealed to be the only senior in Kim's classes who hasn't graduated (due to missing an important pop quiz a week ago before the graduation, thus leaving her one credit short) and being forced to go to summer school, much to her anger, although Señor Senor Junior cheers her up by saying he'll be there during summer school. Although she does not like to admit it, Kim and herself make a good team, using all of their knowledge in cheerleading moves to beat up stronger enemies than them.

  • In A Sitch in Time -- Future Bonnie is voiced by Kelly Ripa.

Family members

The Possibles

Dr. James Timothy Possible

Voiced by Gary Cole.

Kim's father is an astrophysicist, a rocket scientist. His full name was revealed in "So the Drama" by Big Daddy Brotherson. His name (Jim Possible), like his daughter's, is a play on the word "Impossible". It was revealed in season 4 that he was a graduate of the Middleton Institute of Science and Technology (MIST) and that he enjoyed writing Captain Constellation fanfics. In the crossover episode "Rufus", Kim revealed that James was best friends with the Senator of Hawaii when they were in high school.

Dr. Ann Possible

Voiced by Jean Smart.

Kim's mother is not only a neurosurgeon (usually referred to as a brain surgeon in the series), but also a great mother to Kim, and seemed to be more understanding toward her daughter. In season 4 her name was revealed to be Ann Possible by her brother-in-law Slim Possible in "Graduation Part 1". It was also revealed in season 4 that she was a graduate of the University of Upperton. In Mothers Day she went on a mission with Kim and saved Kim from being swallowed by a glob of green goo by using her communicator to send pulses to it.

Jim and Tim Possible

Kim's brilliant but annoying younger twin brothers, often referred as the tweebs (twin dweebs) by Kim, both are named after their father. Their catch phrase was "Hicka-bicka-boo", followed by "Hooo-Sha". When Kim is a senior, the two go to Middleton High school because they had skipped grades. They became the Middleton Pep Puppies after Ron joined the football team and could no longer be the mascot.

Voiced by Shaun Fleming and later Spencer Fox. In A Sitch in Time -- Future they, now muscular giants, are voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr..

The Stoppables

Ron's family, composed of: father (who works as an actuary), mother, and later adopted little sister Hana.

Mr. Stoppable

Mr. Stoppable inspired his son to be an actuary but then showed him how risk could lead to rewards [21]. He also showed his skills in Mathter and Fervent when he used his actuary skills to defeat the math villain terrorizing Ron. In his own words to the villain, "I did the math". As a result he became the subject of Ron's hero paper and gets an "A+" from Mr. Barkin, who exclaimed "Your Dad rocks!" [22]. He was voiced by legendary actor Elliot Gould.

Mrs. Stoppable

Ron's mother was a typical housewife who seemed to have a distant relationship with her son. As with Mr.Stoppable her way of breaking news to her son was to do it and tell him later. Their catchphrase was "This is our way of telling you."[23] Despite this, they seem to love him and Hana very much. She was voiced by Andrea Martin.

Hana Stoppable

Hana Stoppable's name is both a play on "unstoppable" (through her nickname, Han) and she is ethnically Japanese, evident since it was Sensei who helped arrange the adoption and the fact that her name is Japanese for "flower". [24]. Ron is resentful at first but then becomes her true big brother. He later discovers her mystical and martial arts skills in "Oh No, Yono". She may be related to Yori as seen in that episode. As the adopted member of the family, she is most likely raised Jewish. She was voiced by Grey DeLisle.

Other appearances

Apart from their own series, Kim Possible characters also made a crossover appearance in Lilo & Stitch: The Series, when Stitch was kidnapped by Dr. Drakken and Pleakley called on the help of Kim Possible to rescue him. Also, Rufus got mistaken by Jumba as one of his experiments (#607)[25].
