Lionel James is the person who sat behind Greg Heffley in one of his classes on the first day of middle school. He appears in Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the online book.

History[]

Diary of a Wimpy Kid[]

During class, Greg sits down in the seat between Lionel and another person named Chris Hosey. The teacher then announces to the class that the seats they are sitting in are their permanent seats, much to Greg's displeasure. He uses this event to advise readers to be careful of where they sit on the first day of school.[1]

Lionel is also one of the two boys (the other being Chris) whom Greg refers to as 'morons' in the quote "One day I'll be rich and famous, but for now I'm stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons".[2]

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2021 film) trailer[]

In the Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2021 film) trailer he kicks Greg's seat and shrugs when he looks behind him.

Online[]

He plays the same role in the online book though his clothing is slightly different.[3]

Trivia[]

  • Lionel may be much older than Greg, as he has a mustache and looks much more mature.
    • One explanation is that Lionel was held back at least once, which would explain why he looks older.
    • Another possibility is that Lionel is actually in a higher grade and the class that he and Greg are in contain students from multiple grades. Which is possible due to it being the First Class after Summer Ended.
  • It's possible that Lionel is related to Rodney James or Terrence James, as they all have the same last name.
