But first, I think we're gonna have some fun with this place.
|—Sasha Waybright, Prison Break|
Sasha Waybright, also known as Commander Sasha, is a supporting character and is the friend of Anne and Marcy. She is the second in command to Captain Grime as he plans to raid Newtopia in season 2. She formerly attended Saint James Middle School until being teleported to Amphibia three months before, along with Anne and Marcy.
She is somewhat of a rule-breaker as she eagerly encouraged Anne to steal the music box. Sasha is a charismatic and manipulative girl. She is able to make friends 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.
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 Marcy and herself were able to pressure Anne Boonchuy to steal the Calamity Box against her will.
While she might be shown to be selfish and 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, was shown with 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. However, in "Reunion", Sasha demonstrates a controlling and domineering personality as she not only convinced Anne to skip class, but she also forced her to ditch her birthday party. Not only that, but she is capable of inscribing fear into her friends, especially if they undermine her authority. However, in the same episode, Sasha has a change of heart when she realized 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.
Sasha is a Caucasian-American teenage girl of tall height, with a slender build. She has blonde hair wrapped in a ponytail and almond-shaped eyes and black pupils.
Sasha wears a schoolgirl uniform as her everyday outfit. 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 grayish-black Mary Jane shoes with small heels.
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 sword attached. She also wears wraps on her right hand, a glove on her left hand, and armored boots.
Sasha has a beauty mark underneath her left eye of her face.
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 shoes.
In "Reunion", she gets a visible scar from her fight on top of the toad tower with Anne.
Sasha’s other outfits are when she wears a pink robe in "Reunion". She was also cloaked in "Anne of the Year" when she and Anne were finally reunited. She was armored when she was at Toad Tower with a red sword in the sheath of her armor.
Little is known about Sasha's early life except for that back home, she's a cheerleader and she and Anne Boonchuy have known one another since kindergarten. During Anne's 13th birthday, Sasha managed to encourage her to ditch school so they could have some actual fun. After receiving a text from Marcy about a strange box to give Anne as a mocking present, she would ultimately force Anne to miss her own birthday party.
Music box incident
Sasha and Marcy encouraged Anne to steal a music box, not knowing that it was a teleportation device to Amphibia. After opening the chest, Sasha had been teleported to Amphibia but was soon after captured during her arrival by a toad named Grime and brought to a tower as a prisoner. Grime showed her Anne’s lost shoe, which was found at the southern forest of Wartwood Swamp with a similar footing to Sasha's, leading Grime to believe Sasha was lying and that there really are more of her kind still out there. ("Best Fronds") Later on, Sasha was no longer a prisoner in Toad Tower but the commander of Toad Tower. Grime and Sasha made a deal that Sasha would stay a little while and become commander or she would be on her own to find her friends and bring them home. She agreed to stay and then pulled out a picture of Anne, her, and Marcy saying "But first, I think we're gonna have some fun with this place.” and then put the picture back in her pocket.

Behind the Scenes
Name and Basis
Sasha's surname, Waybright, is an Americanized form of German Weibrecht or Weybrecht, from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements wig 'battle', 'war' + berht 'bright'. This fits Sasha, seeing as she is a warrior/soldier.
Sasha is voiced by Anna Akana.
- Sasha has currently been living in Amphibia for more than 3 months.
- Sasha's voice actress, Anna Akana, also voices Gloria Sato from another Disney Channel series "Big City Greens".
- In the Theme Song, Sasha's physical appearance differs from the final. This is possibly due to it being a completely different animation studio.
- When Anne tries to disrespect Sasha's orders she'll give her a glance and say "End of discussion" making Anne very nervous and allows Sasha to control her.
- As of the first season along with Anne, she is the only other human character to appear in Amphibia, as Marcy hasn't appeared anywhere besides in the flashback.
- In "Best Fronds", when Sasha was locked up she was seen without her jean jacket, but it returned in Prison Break.
- Another error like above occurred at the beginning of Best Fronds during the flashback. Sasha is seen without her jacket during the pan over the three girls, with the jacket appearing during occurring.
- Clothing similar to Sasha's school uniform was shown by Carbon Costume for fans who want to cosplay as her.
- When Sasha is training herself in the episode Toadcatcher, she headbutted a red watermelon target that represented Sprig into pieces with ease and don't have any injuries at all. Either she's very strong that the pressure needed to break watermelon into pieces will be 19062.5 kg/m^2 = 1.9063. 5 kg/cm^2 = 1.845 atm or roughly 21 lbs./ Sq. Ft, or maybe it's just cartoon logic.
- As of the episode "Toadcatcher", Sasha appears to have a scar on her left cheek, caused during the events of "Reunion".
- Her last name, Waybright, is revealed by herself in the episode, "Toadcatcher".
