Austin Monica Moon is the lead protagonist of the show. He is a singer and dancer who became an overnight internet sensation after he uploaded a video that his friend Dez Wade directed of him singing Double Take, a song that he unintentionally stole from Ally Dawson. His manager is Trish De la Rosa. Dez, Ally and Trish are Austin's best friends, and his parents are Mimi and Mike Moon, owners of Moon's Mattress Kingdom. Austin has always dreamed of being a famous singer and dancer since he was young. It has been his life long dream to perform at Times Square, on New Year's Eve, which his friends helped him accomplish. He is always there for his loved ones, and even though he can be a little naive, he is still a sweet and funny guy, who will always try his best to help his friends in every situation. He is the boyfriend of Ally Dawson.
Austin is portrayed by Ross Lynch.
Austin is shown to be outgoing, sweet natured and very friendly. He's also somewhat of a musical prodigy, seeing as he can play several instruments (including a trumpet through another trumpet), can dance amazingly well and can sing. Still, he has trouble isolating thoughts with his fast pace thinking and can find it difficult to write a decent song. He is shown to be childish and a bit of an airhead. He loves stuffed animals and pancakes. He's more of a fun and rebellious person, who doesn't care about rules (he colors outside of the lines in a coloring book) and sees life as a big party. Despite his kindness and loyalty, he has trouble expressing his emotions and can be very indecisive about things. Austin is very talented, he can dance, sing, act, play basketball and more. He also loves his best friends and he never does anything without them knowing.
Austin Moon was born to Mike Moon and Mimi Moon. Throughout the series, it is expressed that he always wanted to be a musical artist. He often would watch performances on New Years television events and dream of being as successful as one of the performers when he grows up.
Austin is shown to be tall, good looking with a slightly built body frame and messy blonde hair. In the first season his body type was more lean and thin, but as he got older he began to gain more muscle. His hair also was slightly shorter before growing long enough passing his eyebrows in the second season.
In Season 1, Austin's style of dress was very casual and boyish. He usually wore simple long sleeved shirts, or occasionally a layered button shirt or hoodie with a tee or tank top. His jeans were mostly faded and his shoes were often times sneakers or high tops. He is also seen wearing a whistle around his neck most of the time.
In Season 2, his clothing choices became more stylish and expensive, mostly due to his new fame. The colors he wears are bolder and vibrant, while his shirts and shoe designs are less dull and more expressive. He still layers his button ups and hoodies with under shirts and now wears more colored leather jackets and accessories. He also matures a little since Season 1.
In Season 3 , Austin still maintains having more stylish clothing, still due to his rising fame. However, at times, he will dress more casually, mainly if he is at the beach club. Some of the time he will wear short sleeved shirts and jeans or shorts, depending on the situation. Usually, if Austin is going to be performing, then of course, he is more likely to dress in a more stylish way versus being in school, Sonic Boom, or the beach club.

Ally is Austin's songwriter/partner. They both admire and support each other even though they're opposites. They have hugged a lot and seem to enjoy it. In Magazines & Made-Up Stuff, Austin tells Ally that she's more important to him than getting on a national magazine cover. Austin and Ally are constantly helping each other out such as when Austin sang The Butterfly Song for Ally in Bloggers & Butterflies.
In Season 2, it is noted that there are hints throughout the season showing Austin and Ally's possible feelings for each other as wanting to be more than friends. In Backups & Breakups, Ally mentioned that if her and Austin were dating, Dez and Trish would feel it might affect their partnership with Team Austin. Austin then began to stutter and said that it would be weird for them to date with a nervous sound and a small smile across his face. It is believed that Austin and Ally do have a small crush on each other. Ally finally admited to having a crush on him in Girlfriends & Girl Friends. In Campers & Complications, Austin admitted having a crush on Ally. Dez even goes as far as to say that Austin loves her. They kissed in Chapters & Choices and became a couple in Partners & Parachutes when Austin tries to prove to Ally that she's the one he loves. Austin officially asks Ally out in Couples & Careers. They took a break in their relationship in Couples & Careers because they were both afraid that saying something about their different songs will cause them to be farther apart. Austin writes Steal Your Heart for Ally in Tunes & Trials and performs it, telling everybody its about nobody, even though its about Ally.In Real Life & Reel Life they had a really big fight after Austin reveals he met with another songwriter when Ally conquered her stage fright, because he thought her career was going to take off, and she didn't need him anymore. Then Ally reveals that she had doubts about their partnership because Austin was so different from Ally back in Season 1 and she thought he would become a One Hit Wonder. But at the end of the episode they make up after Dez and Trish make them remake a scene from Chapters & Choices and they kiss for the second time.
In Fresh Starts & Farewells, Ally admits she still has feelings for Austin, but having to stay in Miami for her record deal to start of her career. When she shows up to say goodbye, Austin almost admitted he loves Ally by almost saying "I love you", but couldn't get the words out, so gives her a card with the words 'Thinking Of You' on the front. Inside of the card was an all-round Airline ticket, so Ally can meet up with them on tour, and see one of Austin's concerts. They agreed to see other people in Princesses & Prizes. Austin realized he still liked her and wanted to get back together with her in Hunks & Homecoming. However, Ally started dating Gavin at the end of the episode, leaving Austin heartbroken.
In Proms & Promises, Piper becomes suspicious about their relationship when Austin is being sweet with Ally by saying she always looks good, and holds her hand, making Ally blush. Ally also wonders if she's with the right guy. Is it possible that Austin is her perfect guy? At prom, Austin kept mentioning Ally, making Piper even more suspicious. At the end of the episode, Ally walks into prom and catch's Austin's eye, and he then realises he's made a huge mistake - he's meant to be at prom with Ally instead of Piper! In the next episode, Last Dances & Last Chances, they admitted they still have feelings for each other and never stopped. Austin then asked Ally out and she said yes. They then shared their third kiss and finally got back together. In Relationships & Red Carpets, Austin had to choose between Ally and his career. In the end, he chose Ally saying she's the best thing that ever happened to him. They both finally admited they love each other and shared their fourth kiss

Trish is Austin's manager and they haven't been seen hanging around each other much, though they sometimes interact with each other.

They are good friends. In Fanatics & Favors, Austin let Jace watch him practice even though he doesn't let people watch him practice, and they hang out together when they are hanging out with their friends.
Austin's dad had told him that he has a bazillion to one chance to make it in the music business, and Austin wants to prove him wrong. Austin's dad appears in Successes & Setbacks where we find out he is the "King" of Moon's Mattress Kingdom. Austin's dad appears for the second time in Parents & Punishments, where he grounds Austin for his suffering grades. He might still think that Lester hates them.
