Personality and Traits
Josh's most common personality is his intellegence and willing to work being a straight A student, compared to Drake's laziness. However, he is also shown to be bad when it comes to social skills. He remarks to his brother Drake whenever he says something nonsensical. He is known to anounciate some of his words. Josh is portrayed by Josh Peck as a teenager and Matthew Gumley as an eight-year-old. Josh moved in with Drake when they were 15. He is obsessed with the The Oprah Winfrey Show and ran her over with his car by accident while he was going to the show for his birthday.
Unlike Drake, he usually stresses over school a lot and uses his common sense. Despite his good character and good grades, Josh is prone to bad luck, especially with girls, but even though Drake is usually more successful with girls, Josh gets 22 dates in a week to win a bet from Drake in the episode "Who's Got Game". He often has a bad habit when a person tells him to take care of something, when Josh questionably objects, the person tells him more firmly. Josh has a job at The Premiere movie theater, where he gets an average number of customers. He loves his job and has had hopes of becoming assistant manager. His hobbies are playing video games, cooking, and performing magic tricks. He usually suffers at the expense of Drake's carefree behavior, but the brothers somehow complete each other. He also had a perfect attendance record, but a blemish was put on that record due to him and Drake skipping school to spy on Walter in "The Affair".

She was nicer to Drake though after he gave her $200 back, that she had to spend to get him out of jail, because he went to a concert with fake tickets.

Relationships with other Characters
Josh's relationship with Drake is pretty complicated. They fight most of the time, as said in Dr. Phyllis Show. Even though they fight, they show that they love each other and team up for things that are important. Like in Peruvian Puff Pepper, they team up to steal Megan's Peruvian Puff peppers. Drake and Josh also make a lot of bets with each other. Like in The Bet, they bet that Drake can last longer without junk food and Josh can last longer without video games. And in Who's Got Game, Drake bets that Josh can't get as many girls as he can. Drake shows that he loves Josh.
Up until Honor Council, Josh and Mindy were rivals because Mindy would beat Josh at everything. After the honor council, Mindy goes to a mental rehabilitation clinic. However, she returns in Mindy's Back and beats Josh at the science fair again. However, they end up dating. They break up briefly in the same episode but get back together again. Then, in Mindy Loves Josh, they decide to break up again so that they could date other people and have more experience dating. However, they get back together in Really Big Shrimp.
