Leah must wear her genie bottle necklace in order for Shimmer and Shine to grant wishes, as Shimmer and Shine will grant wishes of anyone wearing it even against their will.
  • Zac (voiced by Blake Bertrand U.S. version and Innis Robertson-Pinnell in the UK version) – Leah's neighbor and best human friend.

  • Zeta the Sorceress (voiced by Lacey Chabert U.S. and UK version) – A resident of Zahramay Falls who wishes to be the most powerful person in Zahramay Falls (more powerful than any genie) and is the series first antagonist.

Leah uses one of her wishes to take them to him and find him proving Kaz was right about him being real. Kaz is a fan of his and was excited to meet him.

  • Dragons – Dragons are magical creatures that are native to Shimmer and Shines world. In "Dragon Tales", it is revealed that wild dragons live in Manetikar, the Land of Dragons
  • Genies - The humanoid inhabitants of Zahramay Falls who grant wishes. The genies are ruled by Princess Samira who trains young genies-in-training such as Shimmer, Shine, Kaz, and Zeta before she quit to become an all powerful sorceress instead. In the past, Princess Samira served as a Genie-in-Training under her genie mentor, Empress Caliana, indicating that genie royalty generally oversee the training of genies-in-training. Genies possess various magical abilities such as levitation and powerful wish magic which allows them to grant the wishes of others though only three each day
  • Humans - People native to Earth like Leah and Zac. Genies are often assigned to a human who is their special person who they grant wishes to as their secret genie such as Shimmer and Shine being assigned to Leah and Kaz being assigned to Zac. Generally humans are not allowed in Zahramay Falls, though they may be allowed under certain circumstances, such as Leah and Zac being accidentally transported to Zahramay Falls and where allowed to visit any time they wanted after Samira, Shimmer, and Shine granted a extra special wish for the both of them, though Samira required Leah and Zac to wear Genie disguises while in Zahramay Falls to blend in as some genies like Kaz have never even encountered a real live human and freaked out at first upon meeting Zac and Leah, though other genies do not seem to not mind there presence. Humans are immune to Sneezy Bug powder and will not sneeze, though they can still be effected by the out of control sneeze magic produced by genies effected by the dust. Like genies, Humans can be magically turned into other creatures such as Mermaids, Ziffilons, and Zoomicorns.
  • Mermaids – Most of the Mermaids living in the waters near Zahramay Falls have glittery fish-like mermaid tails. In addition to swimming, Mermaids can breath and talk underwater, though they can also breath air. However rarely some like the Guardian of the Mermaid Gem has octopus-like tentacles instead. Non-Mermaids such as genies and humans can become mermaids via the use of wish magic or via the power of the Mermaid Gem. The Mermaid Gem has the power to turn one into a mermaid and can undo the transformation as well and can even undo a mermaid transformation caused by wish magic. Mermaids where first mentioned in passing by Shimmer in Season 1 episode "Ahoy, Genies" when she excitedly wonders if they will meet any mermaids while exploring a cave before suggesting the possibility of meeting bears, or bears with mermaid tails.
  • Ice Sprites - Ice Sprites are fairy-like beings who possess freezing powers similar to ice genies like Layla and live in the Snowy Forest near Layla's Ice Palace. They first appear in "Frosty Fun" when brother and sister frost sprites, Zia and Niva end up following Leah and her genies back to Shimmer and Shine's palace after playing in the snow with Layla.
  • Grunts - Sentient gopher-like creatures that live underground in Zahramay Falls introduced in "Underground Bound". While they are not magical they are really good at digging. Most Grunts are shown to be friendly and happily enjoy digging, save for Cog a somewhat grumpy Grunt who prefers to invent things and dislikes digging to the point he tries to wish for the Grunts to stop digging to with Leah's Genie Bottle necklace but it fails as he did not say "I Wish". The other grunts where horrified at the idea of being unable to dig though were relived when Cog's wish failed. After Leah and her genies manage to retrieve her necklace by convincing him it was useless after he used up his third wish to figure out how it worked, Leah, her genies, and the other grunts convince him to dig and Cog finds himself enjoying it.
  • Zoomicorns – Zoomicorns are winged unicorns that live near Zahramay Falls and as their name implies they can fly very fast. They first appeared in "Snow Place We'd Rather Be" where a herd of them saved Leah and her genies after their flying carpet froze while on their way to the Ice Palace. In "Zoomicorn Toss", it is shown that there is a popular sport called Zoomicorn Toss where the players riding cloudboards toss rings around a Zoomicorn's horn as it flies around without using magic. In "Feel Better", Zac is accidentally transformed into a Zoomicorn by one of Kaz's magic sneezes after being exposed to Sneezy Bug dust, though Zac is excited by the transformation. Leah later cures Kaz of his sneezing with the Sneezy Bug which had sniffed a Zahramay Bluebell causing it to cure the afflicted genies which undoes the magic caused by their sneezing. In "Dragon Tales", Zeta mistakes a Zoomicorn's shadow for that of one of the large flying dragons mentioned by Zeta and Nazboo causing her to briefly cower in fear until it is revealed to be a Zoomicorn.
  • Ziffilons – Ziffilons are griffon-like creatures that live on an island far from Zahramay Falls. In "Zany Ziffilon", Kaz reveals he has always wanted one as a pet, causing Zac to wish up a Ziffilon for Kaz, who manages to befriend it and names it Zain. Their favorite food is Zlam Berries and are big enough for a person to ride on.
  • Zahramay Foxes – Zahramay foxes are rare magical foxes native to Zahramay Falls. They possess the ability to camouflage themselves, making them practically invisible. In "Now You See Her", Leah befriends a Zahramay Fox named Parisa and it is revealed that dip of a paw from a Zahramay Fox is one of the ingredients for a camouflage potion, which Zeta tries to use in an scheme to steal Shimmer and Shine's genie gems, but it is foiled by Parisa who follows them to Shimmer and Shine's palace. Having bonded with Leah, Parisa ends up becoming Leah's magical pet and takes up residence in Parisa's Place (a mini-palace that small on the outside but big on the inside), a home for Parisa located near the fountain in the courtyard of Shimmer and Shine's palace wished up by Leah.
  • Zahraramay Sharks - Sharks native to the waters of Zahramay Falls that appear in "Trick and Treasure". They are apparently carnivorous as one is shown hunting Gazi at various points during the episode.
  • Sneezy Bug - A ladybug like insect that appears in "Feel Better". Genies are shown to be quite wary of them as the dust they sneeze causes genies to sneeze uncontrollably producing crazy magic and can only be cured by getting the Sneezy Bug to sniff a Zahramay Bluebell flower which causes the Sneezy Bug to turn blue and produce a dust that undoes the out of control magic sneezes. Sneezy Bugs by themselves are not malicious as they sneezing is involuntary and they seem to stop sneezing once they sniff a Zahramay Bluebell which apparently alleviates their sneezing and as a result are very fond of Zahramay Bluebell flowers. It is revealed that humans like Leah and Zac are immune to the effects of the dust as it does not make them sneeze though they can still be effected by the out of control magic genie sneezes as Zac is turned into a Zoomicorn by one of Kaz's sneezes, though Zac is thrilled by the transformation. While most genies are wary of Sneezy Bugs, Shaya seems to like them as he wondered what kind of magic his sneezes would produce, only to be disappointed when his sneezes produce magic lightning strikes which he claims happens every time he has been effected by their dust, implying that the sneeze magic produced is more predictable for lightning genies, though the lightning strikes generated are extremely dangerous and strike randomly. Ultimately Leah manages to get the Sneezy Bug to sniff a Zahramay Bluebell and it stops sneezing, and starts producing the dust that cures the genies' sneezes.
  • Zuzu Birds - These native to the forests of Zahramay Falls that appear in "The Silent Treatment" and "Boom Zahra-Mom" . When A baby bird mistakes Zeta for its mother she has to care for the bird with Shine's help. The mother bird chases Zeta when she sees her with the baby bird. Zeta mistakes the bird egg for a stone for her potion. Zeta also uses a potion to swap Leah's voice with a bird's voice and her genies need to find a cure to restore her voice. The bird eats Mucky Moss and Zeta feeds it to the bird by her nose and does a dance to make the baby bird sleep. At the end Zeta misses the baby bird when he has to go.
