    • Alex Wolff as Spencer Gilpin, a nerdy student at Brantford High School. His experience as Smolder Bravestone helps him cope with his anxiety and panphobia and develop assertiveness.

    • Madison Iseman as Bethany Walker, a pretty, popular, self-centered teenage girl at Brantford High School. Her experience as Sheldon Oberon made her care more about others.
  • Kevin Hart as Franklin "Mouse" Finbar, Fridge's avatar: a diminutive zoologist and weapons specialist.
    • Ser'Darius Blain as Anthony "Fridge" Johnson, a Brantford High School football jock coasting on his athletic prowess who cares more about dating than studying. He and Spencer reconciled at the end of the last film.
