Jake Long

Voiced by: Dante Basco

At thirteen-fourteen years old, Jake appears to be just your average skateboarding, comic book-loving teen. Unbeknownst to many, though, Jake is in reality, a fire-breathing dragon whose job is to protect a secret world consisting of leprechauns, mermaids, unicorns and other magical creatures.

Fu 1376.png

Fu Dog

Voiced by: John Dimaggio

A 600 year old talking Shar-Pei, Lao-Shi's only companion and Jake's Animal Guardian. In the 1970s, Fu was a womanizer and a petty thief, but after meeting Lao-Shi, he turned his life around. He's messy and loud and he gambles and harasses women. However, deep down, he has a good heart and is a good, trustworthy friend to Jake.

Hunts 2994.png

Rose/Huntsgirl

Voiced by: Mae Whitman

A hot, popular girl at school, Rose catches the attention of Jake immediately. However, there is more to this girl than meets the eye. She is actually a highly skilled hunter, trained by the Huntsclan to fight and slay dragons. Jake's girlfriend.



Halieha 4043.png

Haley Long

Voiced by: Amy Bruckner

Jake's eight year old younger sister who is a perfectionist and never gets in trouble. She has just mastered her dragon form and has just started her training.



Jjohn 9748.png

Jonathan Long

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

Jake's goofy, but loving father who has no idea that he has married into a magical family. As well as being goofy and embarrassing, he is also strict, however, he only is that way because he wants his children to remain safe. For if you hurt his children, beware.



Sulong 1639.png

Susan Long

Voiced by: Lauren Tom

Jake's mother. She has no magical powers, for they skipped her generation. She is reluctant to reveal her family's heritage to her husband (apparently out of the fear that he will abandon her), and to this end, lies to her husband about Jake's business, sometimes letting Jake take the fall.



Sun 337.png

Sun Park

Voiced by: Sandra Oh

The Korean Dragon, Haley's dragon master and Jake's Home Economics teacher.


  • Hippie Teacher: She doesn't like being called "Ms. Park", says words like "groovy" and believes that violence is for the weak and cowardly.
  • Mysterious Watcher: She seems to come off as this towards Jake in her first appearance, before she turns out to be Haley's mentor.
  • Technical Pacifist: This exchange during one of her fights:

{{quote|===Chang===: Sun Park, I thought you were all about peace and love. ===Sun===: And what I really love is to give you a piece of this! }}

  • What Could Have Been: In the original plan for "Homecoming", she got Killed Off for Real. The Disney Execs didn't dig it.
  • The Worf Effect: Appears to be a victim of this. She is easily defeated by Chang (twice), is blasted out of the air by The Dark Dragon in the series finale and even gets attacked by humans with soda cans in "Haley Gone Wild".
    • There's a Worf Had the Flu in the third. I mean, a pacifist dragon against humans? That's no sell for her. Also justified with the Dark Dragon and Chang (YMMV on the latter): Chang is quite more experienced and violent than her, and the Dark Dragon in the Grand Finale is so powerful that when he blasted her he was also taking on and winning against dozens of dragons at once, including the only two who had actually managed to defeat him in the past.

Villains

Huntsmaster 994.png

The Huntsman (Huntsmaster)

Darkdragon 7252.png

The Dark Dragon

Voiced by: Clancy Brown

The #1 threat to the Magical World and apparently the only dragon to ever go bad, The Dark Dragon hates all humans and wishes to overthrow the human race, not to mention to convert all of the world's dragons to his side.



Chang 1100.png

Councilor Chang

Voiced by: Lauren Tom

A member of the Dragon Council; a dragon from Asia. Chang is harsh and cold when it comes to Jake. Unsurprisingly, she turns out to be a mole for The Dark Dragon, secretly aiding him in his plot to recruit Jake and overthrow the human race.



Banb 6469.png

Bananas B

The first ever "Hip Hop Helper Monkey", Bananas B takes over as Jake's Animal Guardian after Fu's license expires.



Rotwood 4482.png

Professor Hans Rotwood

Voiced by: Paul Rugg

A teacher at Jake's school, Rotwood believes in the Magical World (although his facts about magical creatures are inaccurate). His beliefs got him discredited as a scientist, and he now works as the principal of Jake's school. He has a strong dislike of Jake, namely for Jake's bad attitude.


  • Butt Monkey: In "Ski Trip".
  • Enemy Mine: He and Jake make an alliance in "The Rotwood Files" to get Sigmund Brock fired. Later, they're forced to work together in "Magic Enemy #1".
  • Evil Teacher: Played straight and subverted. In many episodes, it seems that his only purpose is to make Jake miserable and he wants to expose the Magical World to humans, but it is shown that he is not a true threat and even has a true respect for the Magical World.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Sometimes, especially at the end of "The Rotwood Files".
  • Secret-Chaser
  • They Call Me Mister Tibbs: He prefers to be called "Professor".

Sigmond 3077.png

Sigmund Brock

Voiced by: Corey Burton

Rotwood's old professor who takes his job as principal of Jake's school after Rotwood gets fired. Needless to say, he's more of a threat than Rotwood.


  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: "Hola students! My name is Sigmund Brock and this school year is going to ROCK!" It all goes downhill from there for Jake.
  • Sadist Teacher: After Jake tries to get him fired, Brock takes revenge by going over the intercom and tells the entire school that "Jake Long in Homeroom 217, Locker 8331" was behind it, effectively leaving Jake at the mercy of a very angry student body.
  • Smug Snake
