Lilo Pelekai

A young Hawaiian girl who lives with her sister and is Stitch's owner.

  • Ambiguous Disorder: Has a mix of eccentricities, behavioral issues, social inappropriateness, and unusual interests (not many six-year-old girls these days are obsessed with Elvis)
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Towards Nani, sometimes.
  • Berserk Button: Never call her crazy, or say that she will never be like her mother.
  • Catch Phrase: "Ohana means family, and family means No One Gets Left Behind... or forgotten."
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Elvis, peanut butter-sandwich-eating clownfish, mummies, vampires, werewolves, and aliens - they all appear in her world. Oh, and the last ones are real.
  • Creepy Child: Sometimes crosses over into this.
  • Demoted to Extra: In any subsequent material outside the movies or the series. Its usually always Stitch that is used of the duo. Funny as the title of the movie was Lilo & Stitch.
  • Fluffy Tamer: The entire point of the movie.
  • Foot Focus: Mostly seen in sandals or barefoot. Justified, given the movie takes place in Hawaii.
  • The Heart: Although she has to learn her lesson at times, too.
  • Hollywood Voodoo: She makes voodoo dolls of her "friends" out of spoons and dunks them in a pickle jar. As far as we know, it doesn't work.
  • Innocent Prodigy: Lilo can use the word "abomination" in the proper context, and reads books that not only contain atypical material for a child to read but are far above her grade level as well. Despite this, she seems to have very little idea of what the consequences of her and Stitch's actions actually are.
  • The Lancer: Well, insofar as a six-year-old girl can support a living weapon.
  • The Pollyana: Not always, but Lilo's the most consistently optimistic of the family. She will get sad if you take away her best friend, though.
  • Morality Pet: Acts as one to Stitch, before he learns how to behave himself.
    • Ironic, since technically he's her pet. Their relationship is more like siblings, however, and she sometimes seems almost like a mother to him.
  • Nice Girl: Usually. She's still liable to make some silly mistakes like most children.
  • The Nicknamer: She loves doing this to the experiments.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: "My friends need to be punished..."
  • The Other Darrin: Daveigh Chase was unavailable for Stitch has a Glitch, so Dakota Fanning was hired instead.
  • Parental Abandonment: They died in a car crash.
  • She's All Grown Up: In the episode "Skip" and in the Stitch! anime where she's now a mother with an identical child.
  • Strange Girl: To put it mildly.
  • Talking to Herself: With Victoria, in her first appearance only.
  • True Companions: Her most central belief is in "ohana", which is closely related to this trope.
  • There's No B in Movie: A major fan of them.

Stitch (Experiment 626)

An illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba. He escapes from custody and crash-lands on Earth, where he is adopted by Lilo.

Nani Pelekai

Lilo's older sister and legal guardian.

Agent Wendy Pleakley

A one-eyed, two-tongued, three-legged Plorgonarian that works for the Galactic Federation as an Earth expert.

Dr. Jumba Jookiba

A four-eyed Kweltikwan scientist and Stitch's creator.

David Kawena

Nani's on-again, off-again boyfriend.

  • Big Brother Instinct: He's very kind to Lilo and genuinely wants to help Nani with her little sister.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: In the first movie.
  • Fan Service: Almost never wears a shirt.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Nani apparently likes his butt and his "fancy hair".
  • Nice Guy: The only character in the movie who doesn't need to improve much as a person.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Well, he is a surfer who lives in Hawaii.
  • Will They or Won't They?: Likes Nani but is often awkward around her. Lilo's comments don't exactly help things.
    • Nani also doesn't seem to have time for a real boyfriend, since she's already struggling to keep a job and take care of her little sister. So while she seems to like David, she also knows she isn't emotionally available. They are, however, dating by the time of Stitch Has a Glitch.

Captain Gantu

Former Captain of the Galactic Armada and later hired as Hämsterviel's errand boy henchman.

Reuben (Experiment 625)

Jumba's last experiment before Stitch and Gantu's sidekick. He has all the powers of Stitch (plus a much more advanced vocabulary) but is a lazy coward. He makes great sandwiches, though.

Dr. Jacques von Hämsterviel

Hamster-Wheel Hämsterviel is a gerbil-like hamster-like alien with rabbit-like ears, and Jumba's former partner. Hired Gantu to track down and capture all the other experiments.

Cobra Bubbles

A Social Worker and former CIA agent.

Mertle Edmonds

A spoiled rich girl and Lilo's rival. She eventually adopts Gigi (007) as a pet.

  • Alpha Bitch: Despite this, Lilo still considers her a "friend". Mertle doesn't seem to return the feelings.
  • Designated Villain: At various points.
  • Disappeared Dad: He left sometime during the series.
  • Evil Redhead: Of the bratty type.
  • Flanderization: While she was the Alpha Bitch in the movie and it's DTV sequel, she's more spoiled and snobbish than mean-spirited and her initial viewing Lilo as "weird" was not unfounded due to Lilo's inappropriate and downright crazy behavior. She's even shown to get along with Lilo a little better in the sequel. In the TV series and it's movies, she's more of a bratty Jerkass than ever for no real reason.
  • Jerkass: Oddly it comes more from being spoiled than from her upbringing. Her mom is actually very nice.
    • Surprisingly, this might relate to the Hawai'ian concept of the ha'ole -- That is, a mainlander who acts like a stereotypical Hawai'ian tourist, considering she's, well, in a minority.
  • Meganekko: Subverted in that she looks like one, but is actually the Alpha Bitch.
  • Never My Fault: In one episode, she gets a charm bracelet with an experiment pod on it. Lilo tells her not to get it wet because it contained Holio (#606), who has the power to transform into a black hole. Not believing her, she purposely activates it and has her house eaten by it, and she blames Lilo for the whole fiasco.
  • The Other Darrin: She was voiced Miranda Paige Walls in the original film and Liliana Mumy in all other appearances.
  • People Puppets: Was used as one by Hamsterveil in one episode via a mind control device. Oddly it couldn't override her disdain for Lilo, which Lilo managed to use to incapacitate her.
  • Rich Bitch: Supposedly, she certainly acts like it and her mom throws some rather lavish parties for her.
  • Too Dumb to Live: See Never My Fault.

Yuki, Elena and Teresa

Mertle's three lackeys that follow her everywhere. Weren't named until the TV series.

  • Catch Phrase: "Yeeeah!"
  • Girl Posse: Blindly follow Mertle's words and actions. They probably would get along with Lilo if they actually got to know her.
  • Hidden Depths: Yuki is often shown to be rather fond of hockey.
  • Those Three Girls: Have a few episodes focused on them otherwise they're just there for the background.


A character from the second season of Lilo & Stitch: The Series, prominent in only two episodes while a background character in others. Accepted Lilo for who she is and became a friend of hers.

  • Demoted to Extra: Only got two episodes centered around her.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Friend version.
  • The Other Darrin: In her first appearance, Victoria is voiced by Daviegh Chase, which lead to Talking to Herself with Lilo, and in her second appearance, Alyson Stoner voiced her.
  • Van Helsing Hate Crime: "Snooty" had her doing this since she didn't know about the experiments and Snooty was constantly flying at her. Turns out it's a "Snot Vampire" and was attracted by her sinuses. Once Victoria realized it was harmless, she changed her tune.

Mrs. Edmonds

Mertle's mother who only appears in the TV series. Quite the opposite of her daughter, as she sweet and kind to Lilo.

Moses Puloki

Lilo's hula instructor. He is sometimes called Kumu (which is Hawaiian for teacher).

  • Big Brother Mentor: Sure, he's the girl's teacher, but Hawaiian culture is based on familial bonding.
  • Nice Guy: Not easy when you have someone like Lilo as a student.

Keoni Jameson

Lilo's crush and son of Nami's employer.

Grand Councilwoman

The leader of the United Galactic Federation.

  • Badass Cape: When presiding over Jumba's trial.
  • Bald Women
  • Big Bad: Played this role in the original movie, but it's subverted since she's not evil, and is truly...
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite not being tolerant of repeated failure, she's only trying to do what's best. However, she can and will use loopholes to go against what the council has decided if it's the right thing to do.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She proposed that Earth be gassed when Stitch landed there, but was stopped by Pleakley, who claimed that Earth was a protected wildlife reserve for mosquitoes.
  • You Have Failed Me: The Galactic Federation has an extremely low tolerance for failure - when she has to show up and take care of things herself, pretty much the whole scene is her firing and prosecuting everyone who failed with extreme prejudice.

Angel (Experiment 624)

A female experiment and Stitch's Love Interest.

  • Brother-Sister Incest: Although the experiments are referred to as Stitch's "cousins", if one were to actually think about it in technical terms since Jumba is their creator, it makes him their father.
  • The Chick
  • Cute Monster Girl: Not that the other experiments aren't cute themselves, but we see very few females.
  • Distaff Counterpart: The only real differences are her color, her antennas and the V-shaped marking on her chest.
  • Distressed Damsel: Became one after she was captured at the end of her episode.
  • Dude Magnet: She utilizes this to attract reformed Experiments so she can revert them with her singing.
  • Evil Diva: Her song itself has evil repercussions.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Tara Strong.
  • Heel Face Turn: Used to work for Hämsterviel but changed sides after realizing her feelings for Stitch.
  • Manipulative Editing: Due to her being reformed, Reuben had to trick her into singing to him (he and Stitch are the only experiments unaffected by her singing) so that he could record her voice and play it backward, turning the experiments tamed by Lilo evil again.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Textbook example.
  • Shallow Love Interest: To an extent, the main reason she was introduced was to give Stitch a love interest.

Mrs. Hasagawa

An old Japanese lady that runs a fruit stand and owns a large number of experiments as pets.

Ice Cream Man

A recurring, fat tourist who is always seen eating ice cream


An evil version of Stitch created by Jumba, under orders of Hämsterviel.

Stitch's "Cousins"
