  • Jimmy Five (originally Cebolinha; voiced by Angélica Santos in the Brazilian dub and Scott Menville in the English dub) - a mischievous young boy who replaces the "R"s and "L"s with "W"s and has a love-hate relationship with Monica, often picking on her or coming with "infallible plans" to steal Samson from her, usually backfiring since he usually ends up beaten up by her as a consequence.
  • Smudge (originally Cascão; voiced by Paulo Cavalcante in the Brazilian dub and Tom Kenny in the English dub) - Jimmy Five's cowardly best friend who loves to get dirty and playing soccer and hates water (also showing high fear of rain), being often forced by his best friend to join his schemes to steal Samson, often revealing his plans to Monica due to his cowardice.
  • Maggy (originally Magali; voiced by Elza Gonçalves in the Brazilian dub and Lara Jill Miller in the English dub) - Monica's girly best friend who is known for her enormous appetite and is always hungry, being able to eat any kind of food at an extremely high speed, despite ironically being the thinniest of the gang, having a big love for watermelons and being one of the few people Monica wouldn't ever beat up.
