I wanna be someone better. Someone that deserves you.
—Sasha Waybright, "Turning Point"

Sasha Waybright is a major character in Amphibia, serving as the central antagonist of Season 1, one of the secondary antagonists of Season 2 and a major character in Season 3.

She becomes a main character in "True Colors". She is a 13-year-old human girl who is the childhood best friend of Anne and Marcy. She formerly attended Saint James Middle School until getting teleported to Amphibia, along with her two friends. She is the 1st Lieutenant and remained Captain Grime's second-in-command during his plan to raid Newtopia. After seeing the error of her ways Sasha decides to redeem herself by protecting Wartwood Swamp and leading its citizens to fighting against the corrupted monarch King Andrias.

Appearance

Body

Sasha is a teenage girl of tall height, taller than Marcy and Anne, with a slender build. She has blonde hair tied in a ponytail with a long bang parted to the right side of her head, a beauty mark underneath her left eye, and almond-shaped brown eyes. As of "Barrel's Warhammer", Sasha's arms have noticeably gained muscle mass due to her tense training.

In "Reunion", she gets a visible scar on her right cheek from her fight on top of Toad Tower with Anne when Anne's sword scraped against her cheek.

Clothing

Sasha wore a schoolgirl uniform as her everyday outfit back home. It consists of a white shirt with a pink collar and an "SJMS" (St. James Middle School) crest covered by a dark blue jean jacket, a short pink skirt, white socks, and a pair of black Mary Jane shoes with small heels. She wears a purple scrunchie in her ponytail.

As of "Anne of the Year", she wears brown armor over gray clothing, a black cape, a large brown pauldron on her right shoulder, and a studded belt with a holster and pink heron sword attached. Her dagger with holster is located at her back. She also wears wraps on her right hand, a glove on her left hand, and armored boots.

In "Toadcatcher", she still wears her armor, but damaged without the pauldron or cloak, and she now wears two gloves. Her only weapon is still her pink heron sword.

In "Barrel's Warhammer" she now wears red armor with slightly lighter coloring and has gone back to wearing a cloak and only one glove. Her new cloak and pauldron on her right shoulder have an eye-like symbol painted on them by Percy; she also has a smaller shoulder pad on her left shoulder. Her hair scrunchie is now dark brown.

Additional features

In "Best Fronds", she has two stains on her uniform. Her left sock also has a stain. Her skirt has small triangular snips off the bottom of it. Her jacket has stitches as well as visible scratches. She has both of her black Mary Jane shoes.

Sasha's other outfits include when she wears a pink robe in the episode "Reunion". She also wore a black stitched hood in "Anne of the Year" when she and Anne were finally reunited. She was fully armored during the Toad Tower battle with a sword in the sheath of her armor.

Personality

Sasha is characterized by her charming attitude and is a rule-breaker, as she eagerly encouraged Anne to steal the music box back on Earth. She is a charismatic and manipulative girl. She is able to form connections easily as shown in the episode "Prison Break", where she was able to maintain good relations with most of the soldiers who had captured her and later Captain Grime as well. In "Reunion", it's shown that Sasha has a great amount of control and influence over the school body, as when she enters the scene, a side character named Vince is shown playing a guitar solo for her.

She is also very persuasive. Sasha was able to persuade Grime into letting her free if she helped protect his fort against the herons, as well as advising him to be more caring and kind to his soldiers to gain their respect. This influence can also be matched with her manipulative behavior, as she was able to pressure Anne Boonchuy to steal the Calamity Box against her will.

While she might seem selfish acting in such ways, she is also presented to be caring towards her friends Anne and Marcy. At the end of the episode "Prison Break", Sasha is seen holding a picture of her friends and her, saying to herself that she would find them and take them back home. Her caring attitude can also be attributed to her persuading Grime to be more affectionate for his soldiers. In "The Third Temple", Sasha's fierce sense of protection that she has over her friends is prominent - as she is willing to help Marcy maneuver out of the way when a boulder is heading towards her. In the same episode, it is revealed that Sasha originally met the girls on a playground back in kindergarten when she saw the two being bullied by two teenagers. Sasha proceeds to engage in a quarrel with the teenagers, even in spite of the fact that she injured herself. This shows her sense of protection she has around the girls. However, in "Reunion", Sasha demonstrates a controlling and domineering personality as she not only convinced Anne to skip class back home, but she also forced her to ditch her 13th birthday party. Not only that, but she is capable of striking fear into her friends, especially if they undermine her authority. However, in the same episode, Sasha has a change of heart when she realizes how cruel she was to Anne, even going so far as to sacrifice her own life to save her friend when Toad Tower collapsed.

She doesn't want to lose Grime like she lost Anne as she came to see him as a friend and wants to help him achieve his goals but is starting to question herself while doing so. While she was deceiving Anne in order to gain access to Newtopia Sasha obviously felt deep guilt for doing so. When Anne also points out that it wasn't just the Toad Tower incident; the fact was that Sasha had pushed her around her whole life and Sasha with true remorse admits she was right, showing that she genuinely wants to redeem herself.

It's revealed that her determination has always inspired Anne and Marcy, and also that Sasha believes that by being in control she can provide her friends with success, but in "Battle of the Bands", Sasha begins to realize that sometimes she doesn't have to be in control, and that supporting her friends can be just as fulfilling as winning.

In "Turning Point", after fleeing to Wartwood she became truly ashamed because the frogs she once wronged were accepting of her because of her connection to Anne. After reading Anne's journal she realized that her controlling ways blinded her to the true meaning of friendship. Understanding what needs to be done and wanting to be someone better that deserves to call herself Anne's friend she vows to protect the citizens of Wartwood with her last breath.

Background

Arriving at Amphibia

Sasha, Anne, and Marcy have been friends since kindergarten. Due to her controlling nature, Sasha forced Anne (and probably Marcy) to do things she didn't want to do, instilling terror in her friends, especially if they challenged her authority.

Sasha cheering Anne for agreeing to ditch school with her.

For Anne's 13th birthday, Sasha convinced her to skip school with her and spend the day at the arcade playing Super Dance Fusion (and taking money from the machine), riding shopping carts, doing graffiti, and relaxing in a café. At the café, Sasha gets a text from Marcy with a picture of a mysterious music box. Intrigued, Sasha persuades Anne to come with her to go see Marcy and the music box at the thrift store, instead of returning home for her birthday party. At the thrift store, while the cashier lady is asleep, Sasha instructs Anne to steal the box. Anne stows it away in her bag and exits the store to rejoin Sasha and Marcy. Later that evening, the three go to a local park to get a closer look at the box. When Anne opens the box, a huge spark of light appears, and Sasha is transported to the realm of Amphibia, separated from Anne and Marcy, in front of Toad Tower, where she is immediately captured by the toad army.

Joining the Toads

Captain Grime is shown in a jail room in the Toad Tower, where he shows Sasha, who is actually imprisoned in a battered cell, a missing shoe belonging to Anne that was discovered far from the castle in the south forest. This causes him to suspect that she was not only lying to him, but that there are even more of her kind of Amphibia. Sasha convinced several toads to abandon their employment while trapped at the castle.

They finally discover that two enormous herons were approaching Toad Tower. The herons strike straight away, and the toads take cover, much to Grime's chagrin, since the toads are too terrified of the herons to do something.

Sasha telling Grime to respect the Toad Army.

Instead of being mean to the toads, Sasha tells Grime to thank them and compliment them. Grime soon begins complimenting the toads, causing the toads to strike the herons. The herons are vanquished by the toads, and the toads go on a feast. Grime then offers her the role of second-in-command, which she gladly takes. Sasha then takes out a photo of herself with her friends, pledging to track them down, while also deciding to have some "fun" with this place.

Sasha and Anne duel at Toad Tower.

Sasha then travels to Wartwood, where she makes Toadie take Anne to the out-of-town bridge, where she introduces herself to a shocked Anne. Grime and his army arrive in Wartwood to welcome the frogs to a banquet honoring Anne and Sasha's reunited alliance. They continue to Toad Tower after Anne gives her approval. Anne and Sasha hang out in Sasha's room as the frogs attend the banquet. Sasha informs Anne that the banquet was held in order to transport Hop Pop to the tower, where he will be fed to a giant Venus flytrap for inciting rebellions in the valley. Anne wants to save the frogs, but they've all been kidnapped. As Hop Pop is being led away to be executed, Anne attempts to persuade Sasha to free them, but she tries to exploit Anne again, as she did on Earth, and almost succeeds, but an enraged Sprig throws mud at Sasha, calls her a bully, and helps Anne. Sasha is enraged by Sprig's defiance and attempts to kill him, but Anne intervenes, finally standing up to her. Grime proposes a duel: if Anne succeeds, the frogs will go, but if Sasha wins, Hop Pop will die. Anne beats Sasha by jabbing her blade into hers, knocking her down and forcing her to lose her sword and dagger, causing Sasha's face to be cut. Sasha is taken aback when Anne stands over her and declares that she will no longer allow Sasha to push her around. Grime does not hold his promise and goes out of his way to kill Hop Pop. The tower then began to erupt from One-Eyed Wally's boomshrooms. Anne manages to rescue Sasha when the tower collapses, but she lets herself fall out of shame over how she treated her and to keep Anne from falling as well. Grime saves Sasha and carries her unconscious body along with him and the toads.

Sasha and Grime celebrate their victory against General Yunan.

Plans of Power & Vengeance

Sasha is rigorously preparing and pressing herself for vengeance against Anne and the Plantars by using dummies while helping Grime escape from the law after Toad Tower fell. She then attempts to inspire Grime by dressing up Percy and Braddock as bounty hunters and attacking them, but this fails. As General Yunan arrives to apprehend Grime, they attempt to flee into the woods. As they were fleeing, Grime pointed out that Sasha is training too hard to distract herself from the fact that Anne stood up to her and that nothing will ever be the same for them again. Sasha acknowledges he's right after almost falling down a cliff, and says the second explanation for her preparation was that she wouldn't lose Grime, whom she now sees as her only remaining friend, which surprises Grime, and the two of them overcome Yunan together. Grime, now inspired and motivated, decides to raise a new army and fight Newtopia; Sasha looks to the horizon as she caresses the scar Anne gave her on her cheek, promising that she and Anne are not done with their feud.

Sasha watches Braddock and Percy leave the scene.

Sasha, Percy and Braddock plan a presentation with Grime and he explains that Beatrix, the Captain of the West Tower, is really his younger sister whom he used to taunt and therefore their presentation needs to be flawless. They reveal their proposal that the Toads all band up to knock down King Andrias and take over Amphibia for themselves and the captains are supportive of the idea, but when Grime proposes that his team lead the revolt, the other captains turn him down. Sasha becomes enraged after hearing that Anne and Marcy are working together without her, she then starts to take her anger on some Toad Soldiers. Captain Aldo informs them that if they can retrieve Barrel's Warhammer, they can take the lead, which Sasha agrees to.

Percy and Braddock tell Sasha that Barrel was a great warrior who saved a village, and that his Warhammer was used to fight a beast that still remains in its hiding place to this day. Percy and Braddock are afraid, but Sasha advises them to send her a "kawaii signal" so they can return home. The party arrives at a marsh and easily locates the hammer, only to find it stuck on the head of a Narwhal Worm that has awakened and is moving about. Despite Percy and Braddock's signal, Sasha persists on continuing and hopping onto the worm's back. Sasha decides to use a rope to take the worm's horn and control it, sending it in the direction of the tower wall, much to the Toads' horror.

Sasha is told by Grime to just cease, but she is enraged and insists on getting the hammer to show that she can do it without Anne and Marcy. Activating her gem from the Calamity Box, she pulls it off safely, and she and Grime use it to save the worm from crashing into the tower, despite the fact that its horn cracks a glass. The other Toads applaud them on a job well done and offer their help. Percy and Braddock, however, are hurt by the adventure and inform Sasha that she neglected them and that they no longer want to help or interact with her. Grime says it's for the best since they've hit their max. However, Sasha visibly begins to questions her actions. After a melancholy goodbye to Percy and Braddock, Sasha continues her plans with Grime. The Narwhal Worm sleeps outside the tower while the Toads plot their invasion of Newtopia.

Sasha happily reunites with Marcy for the first time.

Sasha and Grime find Anne and Marcy in a volcanic temple and save them from lava worms. The only reason they followed them into the temple, according to Sasha, was to reassure Anne that she was sorry for all that happened at Toad Tower. Sasha is taken aback by the idea of a real way home, but when Marcy explains that each temple's trials have a theme, and this one's is determination, Sasha is convinced that she is the right person for the job.

Sasha "apologizes" to Anne for her actions.

The final test for the party is a giant stone toad monster that has the ability to raise the gravity in the room, and all of the amphibians are too small to approach it. Sasha tells Anne that even though she apologized, she can tell she really doesn't believe her when they get closer to the beast. Despite acting Sasha begins to have a genuine heart to heart with Anne. Anne points out that it wasn't just the Toad Tower that was indecent; Sasha had moved her around her whole life, and Sasha, much to Anne's dismay, acknowledges she was right.

When it looked bleak, Anne gives Sasha a motivational speech. Anne tells Sasha that even though she has her faults, Anne and Marcy can't help but to admire Sasha's determination, and even after everything She's done Anne still believes in her. Sasha manages to shed her cape, pauldron, and boots, reducing her weight enough to combat the monster in the heavy gravity, and Anne allows her to charge the third and final gem.

Sasha looks down anxiously after Grime walks away.

Marcy quickly forbids them from opening the box and recommends that they return it to King Andrias so that they can properly use it. Sasha says thank you Anne for trusting in her as they depart, and Anne assures her that they can have a fresh start which makes Sasha glad. Grime ensures that Sasha doesn't forget that they are only using her mates to get a safe way into Newtopia. Sasha claims that Anne and the gang bought her act hook and sinker, but she still displays traces of real regret over what may be coming to Anne and Marcy. This marks another moment of growth for Sasha, as she begins to genuinely want to fix her relationship with Anne, however it's too late to stop the rebellion. Once again questioning her actions, she continues to aid Grime.

Regaining Anne's Trust

For their stay in Wartwood, Felicia Sundew rented a spare room to her and Grime. When Anne asked her to supper at the Plantars' farm, Grime reminded her that she needed to keep up the pleasant act for the plan to succeed; Sasha is certain that she can keep Anne and Marcy in the palm of her hands and, once they fight Amphibia, she can regain control of her friendship with the girls. Anne, Sasha, and Marcy are all overjoyed to see each other again when they arrive. Sasha was thrilled with Hop Pop's cooking at dinner, and she and the girls reminisced about skipping theater practice to hold a wild party on the school roof, but things become awkward for Sasha when she was reminded that Anne took the fall and was punished when they were found. The Plantars irritate Sasha when they constantly reminding her of the Toad Tower incident during a game of Drawsidoodle, which leads to a furious dispute with Anne.

The Vol-cake-no Grime had brought over has now grown to gigantic heights, and hot chocolate lava is flowing out all over the place. Grime explains that toads have a grand battle during desert just he was paralyzed by giant hornets that started flying out of the cake. When the hornets began buzzing all around them, the human girls banded together after discovering that their stingers could penetrate the insects' strong exoskeletons. Sasha apologizes and admits that she is not sure she wants to change since she loves herself the way she is. Anne informs Sasha that though she understands how difficult it is for her to change, she must acknowledge that Anne has. Sasha recognizes the truth in Anne's words and embraces her. Grime emerges and invites everyone to taste the chocolate-covered hornets, which they do and find to be rather tasty.

Sasha watches her friends having fun.

The girls get together to reconstitute Sasha and the Sharps when Mayor Toadstool arranges a Battle of the Bands competition. Sasha, on the other hand, demonstrates her domineering character when Anne offers a different song, and she storms off in a fuss. She tries to establish a band with Toadie, but she soon finds that Toadie has no views of his own and that being in charge is stressful. Sasha agrees to join Anne and Marcy in playing Anne's song when Toadie reminds out that sometimes it's genuinely pleasant to encourage someone you care about. Before Anne, Marcy, and Sasha leave for home, Anne proposes that everyone in Wartwood take a group photo, which everyone does.

Taking Control

Sasha guards herself from Anne.

Sasha and Grime put their hoods up as the gang arrived in Newtopia, due to Grime's criminal status, and Marcy swore to persuade the king to pardon them. Sasha and Grime made their move and snatched the music box just as Anne was ready to pass it over to Andrias. Andrias reminded Sasha that the music box was her only ticket home, but Sasha replied that she doesn't want to go home when she can lead an actual kingdom instead of some middle school. Grime was able to incapacitate the gigantic newt king with Barrel's Warhammer while Andrias was busy with Sasha. The city gates were now open for the remainder of the toad army that would arrive within the hour, now that Andrias was locked up and the concealed toad troops were wreaking havoc. Sasha continued to remain friendly with Anne and Marcy, even inviting them to join her, but Anne declined, calling her a horrible person and declaring that she was no longer friends with her. Sasha tried to send Anne back to earth to be separated from her surrogate frog family forever, but she couldn't make the box function, so she ordered the guards to put Anne, Marcy, the Plantars, Lady Olivia and Frobo to the dungeon until she could.

Grime gifted her a second blade to dual wield when they were hanging out in the royal chamber. Sasha was ecstatic, but when she saw herself in the blade, she was heartbroken. She began to question whether Anne was correct about her, and she no longer knows what she wants. Grime tried to cheer her up by assisting her in redecorating the castle, but when they tore down a tapestry, they discovered a mural behind it depicting the king utilizing the box for destructive reasons, causing Sasha and Grime to realize that Andrias may not be the kind ruler he seemed to be. They see Anne and the others have fled and rush over to prevent Anne from closing the gate. Sasha attempts to warn Anne about Andrias, but Anne, naturally, is enraged and strikes her. Anne defeats her by covering her face with her own cloak.

Captured

Sasha tries to warn Anne about Andrias for the second time.

Sasha and Grime were taken before the king with their wrists bound in rope after the toad invasion failed. Sasha tried to warn Anne yet again, but Yunan covered her lips with her tail. When Anne presented Andrias with the box, he informed everyone there about a period when his friends abandoned him, that the music box was taken from him, and that no one remembers what Amphibia was like 1,000 years ago, but now that he has it back, he will utilize its power to return Newtopia to greatness. Andrias utilized the box to power up his castle, allowing it to fly. He then reactivated old factories, resulting in a large robot army that arrived to the castle in a matter of seconds. Andrias stated that he intended to invade other worlds, beginning with Earth. When Anne and Sasha warned the king that they would stop him, he decided to demonstrate his might by destroying a neighboring toad tower with his castle's gigantic laser cannon. Andrias surprised Anne and Sasha by revealing the truth: Marcy purposefully stranded the human girls in Amphibia.

Sasha tells Anne to run as she tries to slow Andrias down.

Marcy then stated that on Anne's birthday, before they would meet up together, her father told her that he had gotten a new job out of state and that they were moving away, and that she had discovered about the music box beforehand, and that she intended to use it to transport the three of them to a place where they could be together forever, at which point Marcy broke down in tears. Anne swears to defeat Andrias, and Sasha finally resolves to fight beside her; Grime also joins the conflict. Sasha watched as Anne's sadness forced her to unleash the power of the blue gem stone within her, and she was surprised by the new talents she possessed as she destroyed countless frog-bot soldiers and beat Andrias to the ground. Sasha and Grime fought off Andrias as Anne and the Plantars fled inside the portal, only for Andrias to subdue them to the wall, just as the portal closed after Andrias driving his flaming blade into Marcy, engulfing them in a beam of light.

Path to Redemption

Sasha and Grime watch as Marcy falls to the ground and Anne and the Plantars teleport to Earth.

After Marcy is stabbed and Anne and the Plantars are sent home, King Andrias orders a nervously willing Lady Olivia and General Yunan to take Marcy's body away to a rejuvenation tank. Having gotten the Calamity Box, he plans to move forward. Meanwhile, Sasha and Grime are hiding from Andrias and are nearly caught by his Frobots, but jump out the window to flee from them. They are rescued by Joe Sparrow and fly away where they witness the rest of the toad army getting captured. With no other option, they cannot return to Toad Tower and decide to go the place he is least likely to look: Wartwood. However Andrias sees them and orders a Frobot to follow them

Sasha stares into the Plantar home, feeling too ashamed to enter.

Sasha and Grime arrive to the confusion of the townspeople who want to know what is happening and why the castle is floating. They tell them the truth about King Andrias being a "ruthless tyrant of unspeakable power" much to the townsfolk's' shock, but that Anne and the Plantars are on a new mission and sent the two to protect them. The people of Wartwood are relieved to hear this, but Sasha feels guilty. After sleeping at the Plantars' barn fo the night Sasha is further perturbed when the Wartwood citizens offer her things and compliment her closeness to Anne. Grime gets word from his sister Beatrice that some of the Toads escaped and are regrouping so the can plan an attack. Sasha and Grime encounter the Frobot take out, but it was sending a signal for backup before it was destroyed. Grime says they need to leave, believing Wartwood won't stand a chance against the upcoming war, but Sasha refused to leave the townsfolk as she is done with her controlling and selfish ways. Grimes tells her whatever she is dealing with, she needs to face it and move on by going into the Planters house to face her demons. Grimes decides to leave and join Beatrix, and Sasha can catch up when she’s ready.

The residents of Wartwood comfort Sasha after the battle.

Sasha musters up the courage to go inside the house and finds Anne’s room, where she reads an entry in her journal where she learns that Anne was truly happy having Sasha back in her life, bringing Sasha to tears. Realizing that trying to be in control of her friends ruined everything, Sasha makes amends by telling the townsfolk the truth. A Giant Frobot that spews smaller Frobots attacks the town and Grimes arrives and helps, saying Beatrix may have a lot of things, but she doesn’t have Sasha,and begins to fight alongside her.. Soon, the rest of the townsfolk join in in defeating the the smaller Frobots; Sasha and Grimes are surprised by the skill of the townspeople (with Grime even remarking that they are better than any soldier he’s ever seen). Sasha and Grime use the giant Frobot's own missiles to blow itself up. After the battle Sasha way extremely grateful to the frogs she once wronged for helping her while the Townsfolk were grateful to her for taking on the giant Frobot just to protect them just like Anne would have and seeing that Sasha has become a much kinder person, much to Sasha’s delight and she promises to be a real protector. As they wonder what to next, Sasha looks at Grime as he nods his head, taking the lead, she tells them that they will fight back.

Relationships

Anne Boonchuy

Sasha and Anne have been known to be well acquainted with one another ever since kindergarten. During Anne's 13th birthday, she encouraged Anne to ditch school for the day and have fun. She is also indirectly the reason Anne was brought to Amphibia, because had she not forced her to go with her to get the box their friend Marcy texted about as a mocking present, Anne would've gone home for her birthday party, and thus still be on Earth. While Sasha was locked away at Toad Tower, she still had the hopes of finding Anne and their friend Marcy and getting back home together. However, it is implied that Sasha holds a manipulative relationship with both girls after having suggested to a toad named Grime to "Get them to love you, and they'll do anything for you," which she most likely learned during her friendship with Anne and Marcy.

Even so, in spite of here manipulative traits and the fact she pressured Anne to steal the music box, its none the less showed that she genuinely loves her friends very much has, deeply miss them and is very worried about their safety after there separation in the world of Amphibia and has sworn to find them. Later in "Anne of the Year", she was excited to see Anne and they embraced their reunion with open arms.

However, in the special episode "Reunion", Sasha attempted to manipulate Anne into joining the Toad Army and execute Hop Pop, as she knew Hop Pop was one of the main reasons citizens of Amphibia were rebelling against the toads. She also didn't care about the Amphibian citizens of Wartwood, believing they were nothing but a bunch of slimy frogs. Because of these circumstances, Anne refused, breaking the friendship between the two and causing them to fight. Anne proved to be victorious and stated to Sasha that she wasn't going to let her push her around any longer. But as that was happening, the Tower began to collapse and Sasha was about to fall until Anne had caught her just in time. Knowing Anne and the Plantar family couldn't hold her weight for all of them to climb back up, Sasha said to Anne with parting words and tears in her eyes "Maybe you're better off without me," and willingly let go to fall to her death. Luckily, Grime had caught her before she reached the ground, and Anne could only tearfully watch as Grime took the unconscious Sasha away into the forest followed by the Toad Army.

After regaining consciousness, Sasha began repressing her true feelings/emotions towards what happened between her and Anne.

Sasha regains Anne's trust

They would encounter each other again in "The Third Temple" where Sasha apologizes to Anne in an effort to use her and Marcy to get into Newtopia for Grime's invasion plan. During the trial Sasha tells Anne that she can tell that she still doesn't trust her even after she apologized. Anne then points out that it wasn't just the Toad Tower incident; it was the fact was that Sasha had pushed her around her whole life and Sasha, with the few scraps of humility she had left, agreed, much to Anne's shock. When it seemed hopeless Anne gives the motivational speech Sasha needs, and says she still trusts her despite all that has happened. After the temple's trial had ended, Anne finally accepts Sasha's apology. Even though her ruse worked, Sasha is shown to have true remorse for her deception towards Anne. In "The Dinner", Sasha explains that she is not very sure about herself because she doesn't believe she is capable of becoming a better person, and expresses shame that her friends have found ways to change and grow while she herself could not figure out how. Realizing that all Sasha wants is to be there for them, Anne and Marcy assure her that neither of them want to leave her behind and agree to be there for each other. Sasha sees that Anne is no longer the shy girl who she needed to protect back on earth and the two agree to try and make things work between them. In "Battle of the Bands", Sasha starts to feel more comfortable with Anne making her own decisions. Their rekindled friendship shatters in "True Colors" once Sasha reveals she was only using her and Marcy to get to Newtopia with Anne calling her a horrible person and ending their friendship to the point where she refuses to believe her when she warns her about King Andrias' true intentions which causes Sasha to reflect later on and take in consideration Anne being right about her. Once Anne finds out Sasha was right about Andrias, she decides to momentarily forgive her, freeing both her and while Grime frees himself from the ropes. They fight off Andrias' robots together, though the state of their friendship is still ambiguous due to both being separated in the end again (Anne returning back to Earth while Sasha remains in Amphibia).

After retreating to Wartwood, Sasha went along with Grime's lie towards the citizens of the town so they can lay low. However, Sasha became guilty for lying to the citizens of Wartwood as they been nice to her and they kept reminding her of Anne, which overwhelmed her because of how she lied and hurt her. Through the consequences of her actions, Sasha realized that she doesn't want power anymore as she had enough of lying, controlling others and being selfish to them as well. After Grime encouraged her to enter the Plantar home, due to hesitating before, Sasha was convinced to do so as she finds Anne’s journal then reads the day before they arrived to Newtopia as she breaks down and realized what she threw away just so she can be in control again. Sasha not only decided to find a way to set things right with Anne but protect Wartwood for her sake.

Marcy Wu

Sasha and Marcy have also been friends since childhood as she met her alongside Anne. However, Sasha gets annoyed with Marcy's clumsiness and being in the zone. Also, Sasha pushed Marcy around just as she does with Anne. Despite this, Sasha does care about Marcy as she was determined to look for her alongside Anne when they were brought to Amphibia. After she learned that Marcy and Anne were working together without her, Sasha was visibly upset as she believed that she now lost both her human friends. Despite this, Sasha was relieved to see that Marcy was okay and they compliment each other's new getups. Although Sasha is actually using Marcy and Anne to get into Newtopia, she shows guilt about deceiving both of them. However, Sasha fears that Marcy would stand up to her like Anne did and is secretly determined to make sure that doesn't happen. Despite this, Sasha does notices Marcy's growth as a person and understands that even though she has changed doesn't mean she's still her true self.

After finding out that Marcy stranded her and Anne to Amphibia on purpose with her, Sasha was angry and hurt at Marcy for taking her away from her life back home. However Sasha also blames herself for Marcy getting injured and captured by King Andrias, although she still upset with her for sending her and Anne to Amphibia in the first place but does understand that she never meant to cause serious harm towards them. Sasha also obviously wants rescue Marcy from King Andrias and make amends with her as well.

Grime

Sasha and Grime fight monster herons.

Sasha was Grime’s captive for a little over a month among the other toad warriors at Toad Tower. Initially, Grime despised Sasha for her encouragement on other toads to leave the tower, but he began to see her as a useful ally during an attack on the tower by large flesh-eating herons. She also taught him a tactic on how if you say nice things to others, they would do anything for you in return. Grime decided to use that tactic on the other toad warriors, which gave them the courage to fight back against the herons. After the battle was won, Grime encouraged Sasha to stay at Toad Tower for the time being as his second-in-command, believing they could not only restore order to the Valley, but can also help Sasha in finding her friends in the process, to which Sasha agreed.

Sasha was the one who suggested the banquet idea to Grime, believing it to be a good tactic to lure the frogs of Wartwood to Toad Tower to ambush them and kidnap Hop Pop, whose actions resulted in rebellions spreading across the Valley. However, the plan ended up in failure instead and the tower began to collapse due to One-Eyed-Wally's Boomshrooms. As the tower was collapsing, Grime noticed from below of Sasha's predicament on top of the tower and jumped to save her from hitting the ground as she fell. It is unknown whether or not he did this because of their grown relationship, or because he simply needed her for his future plans although it's implied that it's the former. He then carried the unconscious Sasha into the forest with his remaining soldiers, leaving Anne with a disgusted stare from afar. When Grime was carrying Sasha, he looked up at Anne while growling with an angry expression like he was mad at her because he thought that she may have pushed Sasha off the tower and caused Sasha’s accident.

She doesn't want to lose Grime, since his friend Sasha can count on. She tries to do the best for him and protect him from harm. Sasha goes extreme preparing for trouble now that Grime is considered a traitor and now wanted over Amphibia. She feels that Grime shouldn't be lazy, even having the last two Toad Army recruits start a fake duel in front of him. Later, General Yunan entered the scene after overhearing Grime's current location. Sasha and Grime flee and Grime knows Sasha is distracting herself from the fight with Anne. Sasha tells Grime she's not only preparing and distracting herself because of the fight, she is preparing so she can keep Grime safe and she doesn't want to lose another friend. This makes Grime fueled up, and they team up and defeat Yunan and start on a plan to take over Newtopia and let the toads rule over all of Amphibia. They continue to support each other throughout season 2. Grime even gives her a second sword as a gift once they do take over Newtopia briefly and both end up fighting off Andrias' forces together alongside Anne and the Plantars.

Percy and Braddock

Sasha had befriended the two during her time at Toad Tower and were the only ones besides Grime who joined her after they fled from Frog Valley. However, in "Barrel's Warhammer", when trying to get support for Grime's rebellion, she put her friends in terrible danger, which caused them to leave her, causing a regretful Sasha to waver and question her ideals.

Plantar family

Sasha was unsympathetic towards the Plantars when she first met them. Sprig tried to befriend her and was cordial towards her, but she reacted cold and uninterested in him. Sasha was willing to sacrifice Hop Pop to the Toad Army to reach her goal. When Sprig called her out as a bully for how she treated Anne, she did not hesitate to attack him, only to be stopped by Anne. After the duel at Toad Tower, she has great resentment towards them because Anne sided with them over her and she believes they turned Anne against her. Even after Sasha claims to have turned a new leaf in "The Third Temple", she still doesn't hold a very high opinion of them especially during "The Dinner" where she is annoyed by them taunting her over her previous actions to the point where she loses her temper during a game of Drawsidoodle. They put aside their differences with one another once Andrias' true nature is revealed in "True Colors" and team up to fight the bigger threat.

General Yunan

Sasha mocked Yunan when she first met her, but soon realized how skilled and dangerous the Newt general was and tried fleeing with Grime, but then decided to make a stand and fight. Yunan proceeds to join the effort to stop her and Grime's plan to invade Newtopia in "True Colors" and silences her when Sasha tries to warn Anne once more about Andrias.

King Andrias

Sasha and Grime discover information about King Andrias' dark past

Sasha was the first of the 3 human girls to learn of King Andrias' true intentions. Sasha supported Grime's goal to overthrow King Andrias and was pleased to invade his home. However, when Sasha realized King Andrias' true sinister motives after finding a mural hidden under a deceptive tapestry, she did everything she could to stop him from putting his plans into motion only to fail due to her losing the trust of Anne yet again. Then Leviathan revealed, to to everyone's disbelief, that he intended to follow in his ancestors' footsteps by journeying to other worlds and conquering them, beginning with Earth. When Anne and Sasha informed the king they would stop him, he decided to show off his might by destroying a toad tower with his castle's gigantic laser cannon; witnessing this Sasha decaled the giant newt king insane and after Anne gives her another chance, she decides to oppose him for all the right reasons this time. In many ways, King Andrias is a dark reflection of what Sasha could've been had she not reformed and made amends with Anne, because he also had friends who he felt turned their back on him, most likely due to his misdeeds.

Citizens of Wartwood

Sasha originally felt nothing for the villagers in the small farm town, even help Grime hold Wartwood prisoner. But after fleeing from Newtopia Castle, she was amazed at their kindness and now knowing the consequences of her actions she became overwhelmed with guilt. Not wanting to make the same mistakes again and realizing that she truly needs to change herself, Sasha takes her first step in becoming a better person by telling the citizens of Wartwood the truth. However, much to her surprise, Sasha was easily forgiven by the citizens of Wartwood as she was honest with them and for defending them from invading Frobots. Through those events, Sasha becomes Wartwood's newest protector in Anne's absence and inspires her newfound friends to fight back against King Andrias' tyranny alongside her and Grime.
