He agrees with Henry's Mum almost all the time. He is also extremely healthy, making Henry and Peter very healthy packed lunches and cooking healthy dinners, much to Henry's disgust. Peter often shows off to Mum and Dad by being well behaved while Henry misbehaves. He punishes Henry by banning the TV and/or the computer, but mostly resorts to cancellation or reduction of pocket money, for example when Henry refuses not to come on a hike he starts deducting pocket money. He shows favoritism when it comes to Henry and Peter. He tends to believe the best of Peter and the worst of Henry as even if Henry was telling the truth, he will still dismiss it as 'rubbish'. When Peter was horrid, he will find excuses for him. A good example was that Peter sprayed Henry with a hose deliberately, even chasing him around the garden, but he ended up telling Henry that he should have got out of the way when Peter was 'watering the flowers'. Although strict he appears to be more tolerant of Henry by giving him second chances. Also, he is often shown to be capable of distracting Henry enough that he behaves.

Horrid Henry is the protagonist of the series; a violently aggressive, adventurous and even sometimes arrogant little boy characterized by his constant tantrums and hostile nature, particularly toward his angelic yet utterly shy younger brother Perfect Peter. Fascinated by the monstrous, beastly and grotesque, Henry's primary interests consist of violent programming and monsters, and his short temper has intimidated his parents. It is made obvious that they actually favour Peter over Henry, judging by the forms of discipline to which Henry is subjected as a result of his hostility and the complaints of his behaviour made by his mother and father. Even though his family, some classmates and most teachers think he's horrid, when actually he is not a bad person, he actually has a good heart and sometimes shows that he cares a lot about his family and even Peter in some episodes. When denied his wishes, Henry has been known to conspire against authority or any interferences when acquiring his desires, often flinging himself into violent, deafening tantrums and screaming. His Great Aunt Greta thinks that Henry is a little girl called Henrietta, despite being told countless times otherwise. This may be an unintentional source of Henry's anger. Henry wears a blue jumper with a yellow stripe, blue jeans and green sneakers. Leader of the Purple Hand Gang, Henry continuously exposes Peter to malicious verbal abuse, domineering him and deceiving him continuously. Among his closest playmates are similarly-arrogant children such as Rude Ralph, though he viciously contempts Moody Margaret and frequently plots against her. Henry is also known for the fact that his infamous schemes constantly backfire on him, and because of this, he has been subjected to numerous comeuppances in the past. Though Henry continuously fails in all his plights, he has succeeded many times. However, he does care about Peter's safety occasionally, showing that he isn't void of compassion. He is voiced by Elizabeth "Lizzie" Waterworth and portrayed by Theo Stevenson. In the TV series Henry has a habit of breaking the fourth wall by talking to the audience, to the point where Peter once asked who he was talking to. He is the star character.

Perfect Peter is Henry's perfect younger brother. He is often referred to as a "worm" by Henry. Peter has a very comic attitude, liking flowers much like Walter the Softy in the Dennis the Menace comic strips and cartoon series and is known to always do as he is told and treat others with respect. Despite this, on several occasions he has revealed that he does have a more shy side (which is the side he never uses on purpose). It is obvious that Peter is getting back at Henry with the help of his parents, and he always emotionally bribes them (e.g.: "You're the best mum in the world, so Henry won't be getting any biscuits will he?"), resulting in his parents favouring him, which he uses to his advantage. Aside from being spoiled, he shows aspects of being sort of like Moody Margaret, except that instead of using a bossy tone, he adopts a crying and sorrowful look to get what he wants. He is shown to tell on Henry, often Henry gets into trouble as a result of him telling Mum or Dad when Henry's done something bad, usually with the phrases: "Mum/Dad! Henry's being horrid/mean!" or "Mum/Dad! Henry called me smelly/a worm/a toad/told me to shut up!" and even blames Henry for the most minor offences. He has been known to blame Henry for things Henry doesn't do. He also blames Henry for Fluffy running away, even though Fluffy did it on her own accord. He is also similar to his friends as he hates dirt, is always tidy and also does as he is told, unlike Henry. He also expects praise for basic things, such as "being normal", using his fork and knife, and also shows off how good he is, especially when Henry is scolded. This, and the fact that he always asks them politely. Peter seems desperate for praise when he mentions he gets his toys out just to tidy them again which may seem pointless in the episode "Horrid Henry And The Best Boys Club". In the same episode, it is hinted he sees the other members of "The Best Boys Club" as subordinates rather than actual friends as he immediately refuses Gordon's suggestion of taking turns to decide things. This suggests that he is only perfect because he gets praised. This is proven in "Perfect Peter's Horrid Day", when Peter decided to be horrid when Mum and Dad stopped praising him. Despite his nickname, he is deemed spoiled and self-centered, especially rubbing in and showing off his good deeds, because of this he may be suggested as pathetic/pampered/praise loving Peter. He is also the one with a cunning plan to get what he wants or praised, taking credit for his good deeds and sometimes taking credit for Henry's rare good deeds, as shown in "Horrid Henry's Perfect Day", and in "Horrid Henry Horrid Headmaster", he recorded what Henry said when Henry discovered he had to fill end of term reports ("No holiday for me, then."), then modified it into "No holiday!", causing the students to rebel. He seems to know that Mum and Dad won't punish him as he always walks around showing his perfectness, although without his parents believing him he may seem worthless and unable to get his own ways. He is going to get his own TV show in the future called Perfect Peter and Friends. He is voiced by Emma Tate in the TV series and portrayed by Ross Marron.
