- “Hey Anne... Maybe you're better off without me.”
- ―Sasha's last words before nearly falling to her demise.
Sasha Waybright is a recurring character and later the secondary antagonist of the first season in Amphibia. She is a 13-year-old girl and was the childhood friend of Anne Boonchuy since kindergarten.
Little is known about Sasha's early life except for that back home, she's a cheerleader and also her and Anne Boonchuy have been well known with one another ever since kindergarten. During Anne's 13th birthday, Sasha managed to encourage her to ditch school, so they could have some actual fun when after receiving a text from Marcy about a strange box as a mocking present which would force Anne on having to miss her birthday party.
She was teleported to Amphibia along with her friends, Anne & Marcy after they stole and opened the Calamity Box and had somehow got captured by Captain Grime and his toad army.
Sasha is a rather charismatic girl. She is able to make friends so easily as shown in "Prison Break", where Sasha herself has been shown to have some good relationship with the toads and has even befriended most of them including Captain Grime despite capturing her.
She's also known to be persuasive since Sasha is able to talk Grime into freeing her if she helped protect his fort from a pair of herons that had invaded Toad Tower and even persuade him to be more respectful to his soldiers.
While she seems like a good friend at first glance, Sasha is actually a selfish, manipulative, unsympathetic bully that made Anne do things that she knew were wrong and was uncomfortable with doing. By "Reunion", Anne finally realized how toxic her relationship with Sasha is and stood up to her and stopped abiding to her terrible behavior.
Although Sasha can be very controlling towards Anne She does Genuinely Care for her stating that she should be better off without her when she let go of her hand when the latter tried to help her from the collapsing tower.
After their duel at Toad Tower, Sasha did feel and likely still does genuine guilt for her past misdeeds but was this was soon overshadowed by feelings of abandonment and betrayal from Anne siding with the frogs instead of her, which developed into a grudge towards her and a want for revenge. Because of her falling out with Anne, she has a need to help Grime with his endeavors because she sees him as her only friend she has left and doesn't want to lose him as well.
Sasha is a medium height teenage girl with a slender build, fair skin, blonde hair tied back into a high ponytail, and has a beauty mark under her left eye. Following the events of "Reunion", she now sports a faint scar on the right side of her face. She also wears a schoolgirl uniform as an everyday outfit. It consists of a light blue-gray shirt with a pink collar and "SJMS" coat covered by a jean jacket with rolled-up sleeves beneath her elbows, a short pink skirt, light blue socks and dark gray Mary Jane shoes.
As of "Anne of the Year", Sasha currently dresses up in brownish toad armor with a dark gray hooded cloak after becoming Captain Grime's second-in-command.
After her duel with Anne at Toad Tower, she now has a scar on her right cheek.
