Z is a minor character who appears in the spin-off series, All Grown Up!. He makes his debut in the episode "Bad Kimi", and his final appearance in "Bad Aptitude". He also makes an appearance in the 2004 video-game, All Grown Up!: Express Yourself.
Z is described as a bad boy. It's easy to get suspicious of him, as Chuckie became very protective over Kimi and even initiated a spy operation to find out what Z was really up to. Chas also becomes concerned about Z because of his image and then proceeds to ask questions about his name and flip-flopping on the who "don't judge a book by its cover statement". Phil had Z falsely arrested due to being suspicious about his image and traits. In the end, it turns out Z is actually a nice guy who helps with charity work with his father to bring phonics to kids in need. Z understands why Chuckie and his friends were so protective over Kimi as he even admits that he's a "scary guy".
When we first meet Z, he is busy causing a science experiment to blow up in Chuckie and Kimi's class. When Kimi is paired up with Z so that he can finish his experiment correctly, she gets to know him and they decide to hang out after school.

They turn out to be wrong as it turns out that Z was collecting stuff for charity.
