Elizabeth "Betty" Barrett (also known as Atomic Betty) is the show's main protagonist (voiced by actress and singer Tajja Isen).

On her home planet Earth, and most of her friends and family in her hometown of Moose Jaw Heights, young Betty Barrett is an average yet cute and tomboyishly beautiful adolescent 7th-grader middle school student who is highly athletic and loves every single sport that she tries, especially ice hockey. She even enjoys singing in her band.


She enjoys visiting her grandmother Bea on her farm, which is located outside of Moose Jaw Heights, singing with her friends in her band, goofing off, hanging out with her best friends and daydreaming about living in outer space. She is not afraid to speak her mind on any subject, and she dislikes all forms of bullying, snobbery and injustice.


However, when there is trouble in outer space, she is called on by her friend and her commanding officer, Admiral DeGill, and along with her crew, is the captain of her own Starcruiser under her secret identity of Atomic Betty, who is revered throughout the galaxy as a well-known and quite famous Galactic Guardian and Defender of the Cosmos.

When in outer space, she and her crew, a food-loving, green-skinned alien pilot named Sparky and her robotic navigator and second-in-command named X-5, investigate various intergalactic crimes and fights evil supervillains. An expert hand-to-hand fighter, kickboxer, an expert in karate, she can easily defend herself against most opponents, but is also equipped with a special Galactic Guardian issued utility bracelet, which houses various technological devices, such as a holographic communicator she uses to speak to Admiral DeGill, her commanding officer and her crew, and remote controls for her starcruiser and its teleporter, as well as an array of gadgetry and weaponry to use on her missions.


In the first season of Atomic Betty, Betty at first thought that she was the only human ever to be chosen to be a Galactic Guardian, until she discovered her grandmother was a retired Galactic Guardian named Beatrixo, and also one of the first Galactic Guardians.

Betty has red hair, usually worn in a ponytail, and emerald green eyes. When she is on Earth, she wears her usual outfit, which consists of her green headband, yellow sweater, green knee-length short skirt, white knee-high length socks, and black-and-white athletic sneakers.

When on a mission for action, she wears her standard Galactic Guardian uniform, which consists of her white headdress, pink dress, white gloves, pink bracelet, white belt with a nuclear symbol, and white thigh-high boots. She also wears red lipstick.


Betty is a very smart, cute, friendly, funny, strong-willed, tough, charming and very independent young girl with highly eccentric interests, and is not afraid to speak her mind on any subject. Despite her cuteness and kindness, she also has a bit of a temper, and can get easily irriated, most often by her rival Penelope Lang.

On Earth, she likes playing pranks, listening to music, reading her sci-fi comics, popping an Ollie on her skateboard, hanging with her best friends Noah and Paloma, or daydreaming about her crush, Dylan.

In space, she loves protecting the galaxy with her crew, flying in her starcruiser and karate-chopping treacherous galactic supervillains. In the episode Attack Of The Evil Baby, Betty was scared to get her tooth out when she went to the dentist with her mother.


Betty has no known superpowers, but she is exceptionally strong and agile for a girl despite her beauty. She is an impressively tough fighter and has a good knowledge of galactic combat techniques, as she's been seen being able to take down much larger alien opponents with one punch or kick. She is also a very capable Galactic Guardian captain and a very good leader, though at times she can be a bit bossy to her crew, and has shown exceptional prowess in sports, including both skateboarding and surfing.

She is shown to have some slight mystical abilities in the episode Spindly Tam Kanushu, where she uses a special meditation technique to locate the exact planet that her alien martial arts master, Spindly Tam Kanushu, has been taken to by Maximus.

  • Betty is not a very good detective because she saw some clues of her grandmother Beatrixo being a Galactic Guardian and her friend Paloma is an alien, but she dismissed them due to the fact that most people on Earth don't believe aliens are real.
  • On season 1, they hear Betty's "childish" voice throughout, while spoken. When Tajja turned 13, she provided her voicing role of the show's main character, but also sang numerous tunes in voice recording.
