Zack: How do you live like this?

Milo: How do you live like THAT?!

Zack: What do you mean?

Milo: I mean, you wanna live like OTHER kids? They took a bus to school today. A BUS! Doesn't this sound like more fun to you?

— Zack and Milo

Milo Danger (pronounced "don-gé") Murphy is the main and titular character in Milo Murphy's Law, voiced by Al Yankovic. He is the best friend of Melissa Chase and Zack Underwood, and is condemned to live his whole life following Murphy's Law: anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.


Milo Murphy is generally cheerful. He is very optimistic in the face of adversity; when bad things happen to him (and they usually do), he remains calm and always finds a solution, often taking out something from his backpack. He doesn't think someone would describe him as "tough". He considers a life lived like his is more fun than other kids' lives. (Going the Extra Milo)

He was worried that Murphy's Law would ruin the opera Amanda wanted to see; in fact, he worked to make the show continue, even substituting one actor. In this episode, we also see that he is very talented in improvising. (Smooth Opera-tor) He's not sure about what career he wants; he doesn't want to do only one thing. (Worked Day)

The thing he likes more than anything else is his family (A Clockwork Origin)

Physical Appearance

Milo Murphy is a young boy. He has white skin, light brown hair, and brown eyes. He wears a formal beige shirt and a pink sweater vest with brown-greyish stripes on. His shorts are light brown and his socks are long and white. He also wears brown shoes. Milo usually wears a brown backpack full of supplies to help deal with whatever Murphy's Law throws at him.


Early life

It seems Milo had been affected by EHML for his whole life, which means he had always been dogged by bad luck.

Early in his childhood, he was occasionally cared for by a babysitter, a young lady named Veronica. He saw her counter Murphy's Law by using a backpack which had something for everything. At some point, Milo earned the backpack from Veronica, who gave it to him.

Meeting Zack

In the pilot episode, Going the Extra Milo Milo meets Zack at the bus stop on the morning of their first day of school. Milo and Zack immediately become friends and Zack decides to stick by him and Melissa despite Milo's streaks of bad luck, or as he says, "this cyclone of calamity that follows him everywhere he goes."

Further adventures

Some of his misadventures have created chain reactions that thwart assailments of two pistachio-protectors from the future.



Brigette Murphy

Milo is close to his mother and seeks her advice when he is troubled.

Martin Murphy

Milo is close with his father. They both suffer from Murphy's Law.

Sara Murphy

Milo is close to his sister. They are both fans of The Doctor Zone Files.


Main Article: Milo and Diogee's Relationship

Diogee is Milo's dog. He usually appears unknowingly in situations where his owner is. Milo often tells Diogee to go home, and usually adds: "He's not supposed to be...".


Melissa Chase

Main Article: Melissa and Milo's Relationship

Melissa has been one of Milo's closest friends for years. While most of the other kids avoid him, she sticks by him no matter what. She says that Milo's tough because he seems to deal with misfortunes so easily.

Zack Underwood

Main Article: Zack and Milo's Relationship

Milo meets Zack on his first day at Jefferson County Middle School, he aided and helped Zack out when they missed the bus, due to a concrete drainage pipe chasing them away. Zack at first wanted to avoid Milo when their first adventure was going to end, but changed his mind when Milo makes him notice that living like him is more interesting than living like other kids.


Bradley Nicholson

Milo is friendly towards Bradley, who is jealous of the attention Milo gets and avoids him due to his unique misfortunes.

Mort Schaeffer

Milo and Mort are on friendly terms with each other. Mort does not blame him everytime something bad happens though Milo apologizes whenever something happens. Mort joins Just Getting Started as their drummer, showing few problems with Murphy's Law.

Amanda Lopez

Milo and Amanda are classmates. In Smooth Opera-tor, it is hinted that Milo has a crush on Amanda, as he is eager to say hello to her and does whatever he can not make the play a disaster. As of School Dance Amanda says that whoever fixed the decorations caused by Murphy's Law is her hero, and when she discovers that it was Milo himself, she looks at him dreamily and asks him to dance. Milo is always trying to help her see the bright side of things, for example when the whole dancehall gets dark Milo says "On the bright side you don't have to see the wreckage!". In Battle of the Bands, Amanda is seen riding a wave of water during the show and seems to have fun despite not everything is going "smoothly", so probably after School Dance she got more calm about Milo's condition.

Lola Sunderguard

Milo and Lola seem happy and baffled to meet each other, most likely because they look just alike.

Vinnie Dakota

Milo and Vinnie are warm towards each other. During the mission to take down King Pistachion he aided him and Balthazar how ever he could.

Balthazar Cavendish

Milo was friendly towards Balthazar from the start, while the latter was slightly hostile towards the former. Milo was unaware that he had a one-sided enemy relationship with him on Cavendish's part. After defeating King Pistachion, he warmed up to the boy.
