Jennifer (Jenny) Wakeman is the robot child of Nora Wakeman. Jennifer "Jenny" Wakeman (XJ-9) (voiced by Janice Kawaye) is the main protagonist and the "16-year-old robot" to which the title refers, a state-of-the-art gynoid automaton created by Dr. Noreen Wakeman five years prior to the series, though she was designed as a 16-year-old girl. Though XJ-9 was designed to be Earth's protector, armed to the teeth with a wide range of weapons, devices, and transformations, she desires to live the life of a normal teenager and often makes this desire quite apparent to her friends and creator.
Jenny's personality is often friendly and optimistic, though this also comes with being rather naive as to her surroundings. Often, people like the Crust Cousins and Vexus take advantage of Jenny's friendliness to further their own goals, though she usually catches on and comes out victorious in the end. Jenny can also be somewhat of a sucker for trends, even when her mechanical designs prevent her from using them, as evidenced when she wanted to pierce her ears at one point despite not having any ears (Ear No Evil). Though capable of human emotions and possessing fully functional tear ducts, Jenny does not seem to possess the ability to dream or experience physical sensations; though there were two episode segments where she received those abilities, in the case of the sense of touch it caused more harm than good and was removed by the end of the episode.
Appearance in UltimaEdit
Jenny has made numerous appearances in the series and has befriended many heroes from different worlds like the Powerpuff Girls and Peter Griffin, while gaining new enemies such as the likes of Dr. Eggman, Ernie the Chicken, and Cad Bane. Her abilities have allowed her to take on many of the Organization's toughest villains, minions, and creations. She's also close friends with the Ultimawarrior, Sadie. Jenny has also starting acting like an older sister for the other machine with human-like qualities, Robotboy. Both have recently been upgraded to combine into a powerful super mode, capable of going head on against some of the Org's toughest members, and armies.
