Gregory Heffley “Greg” is the main protagonist or the main Character of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. He is one of the best friend of Rowley Jefferson and he is known for his misadventures throughout his school. He actually has trouble with his family, his friends, and his local middle school. He actually is very concerned about that how popular he is at his school, and he desires a lot about being a rich and famous person when he grows up. That’s why tries to fit in at his school, but unfortunately, usually, he does not succeed in his efforts. He Faces many challenges, Gregory attempts to handle them very cleverly, but unfortunately, his stunts often backfire on him.

In the first film, Greg is easygoing and good-natured and like a normal looking guy. He is just trying to survive middle school, failing to realize that he is a bit too selfish, and once got beaten down by Patty Farrell(i think his school teacher 🙂 ) because he insulted her 🙂 😉 .
In the sequel, Greg gets into seventh grade and he develops a crush on Holly Hills, who just moved in, but fails to get her to notice him as she mistook him for Fregley(hehehe poor soul 😛 ), but they both learn they kind of like each other. Greg  Heffley (wimpy kid) and his brother Rodrick Heffley also compete against each other for “Mom Bucks”, a money donation made by Susan, Greg’s(wimpy kid) Mom, that rewards him and Rodrick for spending time together, and they can trade in for real cash. However, they see it as a way to get rich. In the film series, One important information we would like to let you know people is that Greg Heffley of Diary of a wimpy kid is portrayed by Zachary Gordon in this film.
Greg age is changing in every episode of the story Like He is 11 years old in Diary of a Wimpy Kid 1, 12 years old in Rodrick Rules and The Last Straw starts at 12 and then turns 13 in Dog Days, and remains 13 in The Ugly Truth and Cabin Fever which is the 6th Episode or 6th Book of Diary of a wimpy kid.
2. Rowley Jefferson

Rowley Jefferson is also one of the main characters of this novel, who is one of the best friends of Greg although Greg views him as immature and ignorant. He has a larger than average frame. He is always following Greg and willing to do what he tells him, including dangerous things. Rowley Jefferson goes on vocations most of the time, which makes Greg annoyed by this. Jefferson is a loyal friend of Greg, but he sometimes behaves like in an immature or childish type boy. He also put on an unusual dress.

Jefferson gets a note that says he is a kinda cute because of his pimple from all the girls :P, but Greg is a bit jealous of his pimple so he writes a fake letter to him ;). In Dog Days (Book 4), Rowley and Greg separate, and Greg knows that he and Rowley Jefferson will no longer be friends, but they got back together in the end of The Ugly Truth(Book 5). At the end of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Rowley eats “The cheese,” a secret that only Greg and a small group of teenagers knows about that. Rowley Jefferson has what Greg considers strange interests for his age and gender, such as liking a singer for “six-year-old girls” named “Joshie”, and the Dino Blazer action figures he receives as a birthday present, which is supposed to be toys for young boys for the age of 7, which show that R.Jefferson has not really grown up. Rowley Jefferson appears in the fifth book( The Ugly Truth), but his friendship with Greg deteriorates. Eventually, they make up. Like Greg, he dislikes Fregley. Rowley Jefferson also is the owner of the comic strip Zoo Wee Mama, which was originally Greg’s idea, and they both worked on it. However, Greg gives up to start his own comic strip and hands Zoo Wee Mama to Rowley Jefferson, and it becomes a success. After that, however, Rowley Jefferson claims that Greg had nothing to do with the comic strip. In the movie series, Rowley Jefferson is portrayed by Rob Capron

Manny Heffley is the younger brother of Greg Heffley(Wimpy kid) and is far more spoiled than Greg and Rodrick (Greg’s Brother) combined, mostly because he throws extreme tantrums to get whatever he wants heheh :).He was like having its own world .
Manny Heffley has told on Greg for things he saw before talking age, such as breaking a sliding glass window, which had occurred two years before. Manny has cried in all the books (versions of Diary of a wimpy kid) except The Ugly Truth. In Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, he cries because Greg pretends that he’s making Manny eat a spider (a piece of string). Manny accidentally eats the string and cries because of it.

In The Last Straw, he cries when Greg calls him a “ploopy”. In Dog Days, Manny cries on a family trip when Rodrick tells Manny that the hump seat Manny is sitting on is the least comfortable. He once crawled into Rowley’s sleeping bag at one of Greg’s sleepovers. In Rodrick Rules(Second book), he puts a cookie in Greg’s game slot causing the entire console to break. He apologizes to Greg by giving a ball of tinfoil with toothpicks sticking out of it(as he is alsot eh brother of Greg hahahah  so also know how to deal with Greg 🙂 😉 ).
3. Rodrick Heffley

Rodrick Heffley is another important character in this story and he is Greg’s teenage brother and he never misses a chance to be cruel to Greg Heffley.
