This is the cast of characters from the Nickelodeon series ICarly.

Carly Shay

File:Icarly cs 1724.jpg

Cquote1.svg

 Portrayed by: Miranda Cosgrove

Cquote2.svg

The central protagonist and Straight Man to the constant shenanigans surrounding her, Carly is a relatively normal high-schooler. At least, as normal as you can be when you're an Internet celebrity in a Dan Schneider TV series.

Cquote1.svg

 "You have a sister who is 18 but doesn't have her driver's license? (chuckles) That's lame."

Cquote2.svg
  • The Chick
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Zig-zagged but while she doesn't seem to want to date Freddie, she seems offended whenever he drools over someone else.
    • Played very straight in iSaved Your Life. Pity on any girl who went near Freddie while Carly was around.
  • Depending on the Writer: Carly is either portrayed as a level headed Everyman with a short temper or a Ditzy Ingenue with boundless tolerance. The former is seen most often but in episodes such as iRescue Carly, she is portrayed as the latter. 
  • Dude Magnet: It seems almost all the guys want Carly. Almost.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Taking the blame for Sam to keep her from being expelled, then showing that she is the only person who can control Sam.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Missy, Sam, and Shelby have all shown signs of being attracted to her in more than a "just friends" way.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Though horribly hurt by Steven's cheating in iParty with Victorious, she acknowledges that Tori is also a victim and remains cordial to her.
  • Genki Girl
  • Girl Next Door: Well girl across the hall to Freddie.
  • Good Is Not Dumb: In general, but averted in iStill Psycho where her acceptance to go back in the Dershlits' house made the gang their prisoners once more, and then again when she believed Mr. Dershlit was even sane enough to let them go.
  • The Heart
  • The Heroine
  • Heterosexual Life Partners: With Sam.
  • Idiot Ball: Otherwise calm and rational Carly decides to see if it's possible to get your big toe stuck in a faucet in iToeFatCakes.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: She was a jerk in how she said it (though understandably so), but she's right in saying that if Sam and Freddie couldn't resolve their issues without Carly's help, then they shouldn't be dating at all.
  • Just Friends: With Freddie. The Grand Finale hints that that might change in the future.
  • The Kirk: The 'choose between the McCoy and Spock' aspect of this trope comes directly into play in iDate Sam & Freddie where Carly is constantly put in the middle of Sam and Freddie's fights, until it overwhelms her and she tells them they shouldn't be dating unless they can fix their problems themselves.
  • Large Ham
  • Little Miss Snarker: Not called the Sassmaster for nothing.
  • Missing Mom: What happened to her and Spencer's mom is never brought up.
  • Motor Mouth: While not brought up too often, she can really shows this off when she wants to.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her dancing dress in iDream of Dance, being clad a bikini in the skit of iHatch Chicks, being in a sports bra and boxing shorts in iFight Shelby Marx, being bound and gagged by Sam in iSpeed Date, wearing a sleeveless blouse and skimpy shorts in iBeat the Heat. Much moreso with how she dresses during her dates and being stranded in a bathtub for most of an episode.
  • Noodle Incident: Had an "experience" with a goat at a petting zoo a year before iGot a Hot Room.
  • Pettanko: Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with a little help. She's getting curvier every day!
  • Pungeon Mistress
  • Puppy Dog Eyes: Freddie cannot resist when Carly follows up a request or favor with a pouting "Please, for me?"
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Sam.
  • Team Mom: Mostly when it's the main trio and Spencer.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Sam's Tomboy.
  • Women Are Wiser: In comparison to Sam.
    • And Spencer.

Samantha "Sam" Puckett

File:Icarly sp 1939.jpg

Cquote1.svg

 Portrayed by: Jennette McCurdy

Cquote2.svg

Carly's best friend and petite blonde co-host of the iCarly webshow. In this Power Trio, Sam very definitely takes on the "Brawn" side: she's aggressive, violent and eats everything. She has a very tenuous relationship with her mom, who was She Who Must Not Be Seen until finally introduced in Season 4, played by none other than Jane Lynch.

Fredward "Freddie" Benson

File:Icarly fb 8413.jpg

Cquote1.svg

 Portrayed by: Nathan Kress

Cquote2.svg

The cameraman and general tech-support guy for iCarly, as well as Carly's other best friend. He is an all-around nice guy, along with growing up under the wing of his overbearing mother Marissa Benson.

Spencer Shay

File:Icarly ss 7890.jpg

Cquote1.svg

 Portrayed by: Jerry Trainor

Cquote2.svg

Carly's quirky older brother and legal guardian, as their parents are off doing God knows what (Mr. Shay is an Air Force Colonel, but that's all that's been said). He is a sculptor of some sort, but easily out-wacky-hijinxes the younger characters despite his more-advanced age.

  • Adult Child/Man Child
  • Alliterative Name
  • Big Brother Instinct: Despite his rather aloof personality, he shows potential of being Carly's guardian, especially in iWanna Stay With Spencer, when Carly and Spencer's grandfather claimed Spencer was an unfit guardian, and tries to take Carly. Upon leaving, Spencer stops them to give them Carly's inhaler, despite she's never had one in years, stating that asthma is tricky. This convinces their grandfather to let Carly stay with Spencer.
    • In iLook-a-Like, Spencer is shown in a much more mature demeanor, actually saying no to Carly for once when she asked to do iCarly at an MMA fight. When Carly demanded when Spencer become 'uncool', Spencer coldly retaliated by calling her out on 'acting a baby whenever she doesn't get what she wants'. In fact, he became highly pissed off when he discovered she actually sneaked out to see the fight.
  • Big Brother Mentor: To Carly obviously but he's also notably this to Freddie and Gibby, both of whom lack male role models in their own families.
  • Bunny Ears Lawyer: Despite all his weirdness, he was able to pick up enough during his three days at law school (and the book on law he kept) to help the gang out of just about any legal mishap they get themselves in very effectively. It was even given quite a Shout-Out in iPromote Techfoots when he acted as the gang's lawyer and wore a bizarre necktie.
  • Butt Monkey
  • Chew Toy
  • Chick Magnet: He's dated Gibby's Mom, Marissa, the cashier at the grocery store... Just to name a few.
  • Cloudcuckoolander
    • The Cloud Cuckoolander Was Right: In one episode, he spent the entire episode thinking a character from Galaxy Wars was going to show up and give him a hug, he was right. Another has him demonstrate that a dust buster can be an effective weapon.
  • Epic Fail: His Running Gag is that the mundane objects he fixes, sculpts, or (at the very least) touches become extremely prone to bursting into flames, bypassing any form of scientific logic. He even lampshades the more outlandish ones.
    • This trait of his was Deconstructed by being Played for Drama in iGot A Hot Room when a lamp that Spencer gives to Carly bursts into flames, destroying her room.
    • iChristmas did the same from, but from Carly's perspective.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Hanging upside down from the ceiling to photograph his bottle bot.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Cloudcuckoolander he may be, even he was freaked out by Sikowitz in iParty with Victorious.
  • Fun Personified: Anecdotes from his life charm Michelle Obama.
  • Handsome Lech
  • Keet
  • Large Ham: Weaponized in iTake on Dingo.
  • Missing Mom
  • Motor Mouth
  • Oh Crap: Is understandably horrified when he realizes he just slapped Shelby Marx.
  • One of Us: Referenced in-universe. Like the actor himself, Spencer plays a World of Warcraft Expy as seen in iStart A Fan War.
  • Papa Wolf: Literally kicks a guy out of their apartment after he chases Carly for a kiss she does not want.
  • Pungeon Master
  • Reality Ensues: The Grand Finale reveals that at least a decent chunk of his income comes from his Dad sending him money given his infrequent jobs and large spendings.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Carly.
  • The Stoner: Never outright stated but he gives off this vibe.
  • Team Dad
  • Wacky Guy
  • Walking Techbane
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: He has no qualms admitting he wears a size 10 dress, to the point having a Disguised in Drag subplot.
    • He even poses as Pam Puckett in iLost My Mind to break Sam out of the mental hospital. And he was eager to do so.

Orenthal "Gibby" Cornelius Gibson

File:Icarly gg 7179.jpg

Cquote1.svg

 Portrayed by: Noah Munck

Cquote2.svg

Appearing as a minor character when the series began, Gibby is among the main trio's friend and schoolmate and a frequent Butt Monkey guest in the webshow. As the show progressed, he was slowly developed to be one of the gang's most loyal friends and a usual sidekick to Carly's eccentric big brother Spencer.

Nora Dershlit

Cquote1.svg

 Portrayed by: Danielle Morrow

Cquote2.svg
  • Ax Crazy: Lampshaded in-universe. She is completely insane, and at one point is wielding an ax.
    • As shocking as it sounds, she's worse in iStill Psycho.
  • Batman Gambit: In iStill Psycho especially. Her plan depended on so many things- the iCarlys forgiving her and agreeing to go to her house, the judge paroling her, Spencer picking them up and needing to use the bathroom, etc.
  • Big Bad: Of iPsycho and iStill Psycho.
  • Comically Missing the Point: She fails to realize any metaphor of insanity directed at her. But she's well aware of her insanity in iStill Psycho, she just doesn't care.
  • Dark Action Girl: While she's not all that attractive, she's no slouch when it comes to fighting and engages Gibby in a rather brutal fight and holds her own.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Her parents, who also serve as her Co-Dragons in iStill Psycho.
  • Face Heel Turn: While technically starting as a Woobie fan, she later turned into the episode's deranged Big Bad.
  • Freudian Excuse: She has no friends, her parents left her alone on her birthday (apparently something she's used to happening), and she's had a pretty horrible life.
    • Though this isn't nearly enough to justify her actions in iStill Psycho and it turns out her family is just as psychotic as she is.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Is a lonely girl with only her chicken to talk to... so she decides to kidnap the iCarly crew under the delusion that they're her friends.
  • Insistent Terminology: Nora despises any other words to describe her insanity. She prefers being called a "disturbed, lonely sociopath".
  • In the Blood: iStill Psycho reveals that her parents are just as Ax Crazy as she is.
  • I Will Punish Your Friend for Your Failure: Kidnaps Spenser and traps him in her basement on a giant wheel, spinning him if the iCarly gang does anything she doesn't agree with. She even threatens to kill him if they go too far!
  • Loony Fan: Her obsession with iCarly makes Mandy look sane by comparison.
  • Manipulative Bitch: In both of her appearances, she plays up her Freudian Excuse to trick the iCarly gang to do as she wants them to, not revealing her true motivations until they're already in her trap.
  • Never My Fault: Blames the iCarly gang for "ruining" her birthday party, when it was her own fault for kidnapping them in the first place.
  • The Sociopath: She's even referred to as one In-Universe. She even admits it herself.
Cquote1.svg

 Carly: Nora... You're a nutcase!

Nora: The correct term is disturbed, lonely sociopath.

Cquote2.svg
  • Villainous Breakdown: Between appearances, she got a lot crazier as a result of being locked up in prison. She also begins to lose it quite a bit towards the end of iStill Psycho.
  • Yandere: For the iCarly gang.

Steven Carson

Cquote1.svg

Portrayed by: Cameron Stewart

Cquote2.svg
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Seems to be what attracted Carly and Tori to him. He on the other hand seems to be attracted to girls like Carly and Tori.
  • Ambiguous Syntax: When Carly and Tori both dump him, he sounds somewhat resigned to Carly but is visibly horrified by Tori dumping him. Either he was more into Tori than Carly, he didn't expect to lose them both in one night, or both.
  • Expy: He's noted to have a few traits in common with Ryder Daniels. This is also one of the more criticized aspects of the crossover.
  • Homeschooled Kids: Averted. Despite being homeschooled, he's totally up to date with the slang and has no eccentricities.
  • Jerkass: Aside from being a two-timer, he bought both Tori and Carly the same type of charm bracelet, used the same lines on both of them, and didn't even notice Tori's bracelet was accidentally engraved as "Topi."
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Could there be any better fate for him than Carly and Tori exposing and humiliating him?
  • Manipulative Bastard: Neither Tori or Carly suspected anything was up for three months. If it weren't for Robbie posting that picture, it's doubtful either of them would have found him out.
  • Oh Crap: When he sees that his humiliation is live on iCarly.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Shamelessly and doubly so. He's been dating Carly and Tori for three months and didn't appear, or was even mentioned, once in either show before the crossover.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: Can't offer a coherent retort to Carly and Tori humiliating him and just storms off.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Carly seeing a picture of him and Tori together is what kicks off the special.
