Penny (named Piko in the original Japanese version) is a character from the first two seasons of Stitch!. She is very similar to Mertle Edmonds from the original series, Jessica from the third season of Stitch!, and Meiying from Stitch & Ai.
Penny is a small white girl with curly blonde hair and blue eyes. She wears pink glasses and a big bow and a pink sleeveless blouse and white pants.
She is young girl who lives on a fictional island off the shore of Okinawa in the Ryukyus called Izayoi Island in Japan. She is known as Yuna's rival. She is self-centered, impatient and in some cases, a bit snobby. Penny often takes great pride to mock and deride Yuna and Stitch in any case, often ending with Yuna and her fighting. This makes her remarkably similar to Mertle Edmonds. There are rare occasions where she and Yuna can get along, though. Her father runs the island's pineapple plants, and her family runs the highest rated hotels and resorts on Izayoi, making her snobbery justifiable.
There's a habit with Penny where when she's angered, she'll often end her ranting with a comparison of something akin to pineapples. She is also a black-team karate leader. Penny may have been idealized after Hawaiian pop song Pineapple Princess. Penny dislikes Sasha but secretly does believe that she dresses better than her. Her minions consist of her older brother, Kenny, and his friends, Ted and Marvin.
When Hämsterviel pretended to be a nice guy, Penny believed in him and called him her hero and hoped that he would protect her and the island. However, when Hämsterviel chickened out, Penny realized that he was deceiving her and she attacked him on the robot and threatened to follow him for the rest of his life.
- When Lilo was in disguise in the original series, she pretended to be a girl named Penny whose parents own a pineapple factory. This may have been the inspiration for Penny in Stitch!.
