Penn Zero is the protagonist of the Disney XD animated series Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero. A student at Middleburg Central High, he also works daily as a part-time hero.


Penn Zero obtained the job as part-time hero when his parents, Brock and Vonnie Zero, found themselves trapped in the "Most Dangerous World Imaginable", with no way to escape but enough experience to stay alive. From then on, he lived with his Aunt Rose and Uncle Chuck, and could communicate with his parents via the Multi Universe Hologram Uplink (MUHU). As a part-time hero working for Phyllis, he is joined by his best school friends Boone and Sashi to hop through dimensions using the Multi Universe Transprojector to foil the plans of his art teacher Rippen and the Principal Larry.



Calling her the smartest and toughest of girls, Penn appreciates Sashi's friendship and assistance. He relies on Sashi heavily when it comes to pulling off complicated tasks like retrieving the magic sword and escaping the prison cage in "North Pole Down". Whenever Sashi's being more aggressive, Penn is terrified by her, like when she wasn't pleased with his trick in dodgeball in "3 Big Problems", but at other times he enjoys making fun of her like when she gets a silly form or he's not fazed by it. He calls her out for being so violent, stubborn, and a bit crazy in "The Princess Most Fair", but when she admits she feels left out of Penn and Boone's close bond, he reassures her that she is the glue to the group, keeping the team on the rails.


His best friend.



Principal Larry
