Characters[edit]

Heroes[edit]

  • Connor / Catboy (voiced by Jacob Ewaniuk in Season 1, and Jacob Ursomarzo in Season 2) is a blue-eyed boy with brown hair. When he transforms he wears a blue cat costume with cat ears and a thin feline tail. He is the leader of the group.[6] He has super-hearing using Cat Ears, can leap high and far using Super Cat Jump, and sprints fast using Super Cat Speed,[7] or just Super Speed.[8] When on a mission, he sometimes likes to narrate his actions. His main flaws are his impulsiveness and his need to control, flaws which can be exploited by the team's opponents. His vehicle is the Cat Car located in the middle segment of the PJ Masks' tower. His bedroom is on the second floor of a blue-roofed blue-doored house next to Amaya's.
  • Amaya / Owlette (voiced by Addison Holley) is an auburn-eyed girl with brown hair who wears red glasses. When she transforms, she wears a red costume with wings. She has owl eyes which lets her see things that are far away up close, and she also has super owl wing wind. Her vehicle is the Owl-Glider, which can also do a "Super Owl Wing Wind". She is housed in her top segment of the PJ Masks' tower. Her bedroom is on the third floor of a red-roofed red-doored home with a walled-in yard between Connor and Greg's houses.
  • Greg / Gekko (voiced by Kyle Harrison Breitkopf) is a green-eyed, blonde haired boy.[9] When he transforms he wears a green costume with a thick reptilian tail, fins on top of his head. His powers are, Super Gekko Camouflage to go invisible or blend into his surroundings, Super Gekko Muscles (aka Super Muscles[8]) to lift heavy things, Super Lizard Grip to climb walls or anchor himself to stop vehicles, and Super Lizard Water Run to walk on water[7]. He has exhibited enough strength to lift a mobile laboratory off the ground. His vehicle is the Gekko-Mobile, which is also a submersible vehicle which can travel underwater and also ride up & over buildings via land on tank treads which is slower than the Cat-Car. His vehicle is located in the bottom segment of the PJ Masks tower. The vehicle has abilities similar to him, with a "Gekko-Mobile Camouflage" letting it blend in with surroundings. His bedroom is on the second floor of a green-roofed green-doored house next to Amaya's.
  • PJ Robot is a robot that Romeo created to infiltrate the PJ masks HQ. However, PJ robot decided to be a PJ Mask rather than a villain's sidekick. He joined the PJ Masks Team in season 2.
  • Armadylan (voiced by Max Calinescu) is an armadillo like-boy who wants to a hero but his being inexperienced causes him to mess up. He joined the PJ Masks in "Meet Armadylan". His powers are Earthquake to shake the ground, super strength to lift any heavy objects, like Gekko, Roll himself up into a ball to attack his opponents and he can also dig underground to go underneath the ground.

Villains[edit]

  • Romeo (voiced by Alex Thorne in the series and by Carter Thorne in Shorts) is the main villain in the series who comes up with a variety of devices from his mobile lab. His favorite inventions (as said in "Owlette's New Move") are his Robot, his La-Boggin, his Track-A-Whacker, and Radical Romeo Remote. He once took over the city in "Gekko and the Mayhem at the Museum"
  • Luna Girl (voiced by Brianna Daguanno) is the secondary villain with a Luna Magnet device. This once included a giant Moon-Ball, which could steal objects and swallow her enemies. She once teamed with her all time enemies while defeating Romeo in "Gekko and the Mighty Moon Problem".
  • Night Ninja (voiced by Trek Buccino in Season 1 and Devan Cohen in the short films and Season 2) is the tertiary villain who controls a bunch of minions called the Ninjalinos. He and Romeo once teamed up in "Catboy and the Shrinker".
  • Wolfy Kids / Howler, Rip, and Kevin, (voiced by Ethan Pugiotto) are quaternary villains who are the new kids that turn to werewolves when the full moon is out.

Recurring[edit]

  • Cameron (voiced by Tristan Samuel in Season 1 and Jonah Wineberg in Season 2) is a boy in the same class as PJ Masks when they attend school during the day as civilians. He once scared Amaya with a T-Rex cutout the same way Connor did earlier in "Owlette's Terrible Pterodactyl Trouble", but Connor learned his lesson and tells Cameron not to do it. In "Catboy's Cuddly", he was revealed to have a sister, who attends the same school.
  • Teacher (voiced by Rob Tinkler) is an unnamed adult male who teaches Connor, Greg, and Amaya's class. When things disappear, he thinks it's strange.
  • Jayden Houston is a popular singer that is known for his golden microphone. His microphone was stolen by Luna Girl in "Catboy's Tricky Ticket", but was later recovered by the PJ Masks.
  • Master Fang is the protagonist of his own comic book and TV series. He is largely looked up to by Connor and Greg, but Amaya doesn't seem to care about him much. He is known for his signature sword which was stolen by Night Ninja in "Catboy and Master Fang's Sword".
  • Kick McGee is Master Fang's unseen sidekick. His persona is often used by during missions.
  • Flossy Flash is a female comic book superhero that is looked up to by Owlette. Owlette prefers her over Master Fang and Kick McGee who are favored by Catboy and Gekko.
  • The announcer (voiced by Ron Pardo) is a male voice that is heard in every episode. He is never seen, but is known for saying his signature introduction sequence.
  • Robette is one of Romeo’s inventions it began to try to take over the world herself in "Catboy and Gekko's Robot Rampage". This was due to a loose screw and was later resolved. During the episode, Romeo's original robot became jealous of Robette, which resulted in the robot running away. This was also later resolved and Romeo became friends with Robot again. She returned again in Season 2.
