Marissa (oldest daughter)
- "I'm not a kid! I'm just a teen who doesn't wanna grow up, alright, wise guy?"
Maya is kind and has a great sense of humor like her nobody, Miriam. She is immature and very flirty most of the time. As an adult, she matures and is very motherly, but still has her sense of humor. Maya is also shown to be disrespectful and violent, which is seen in Luna Tempest when she throws an apple at Xavier, insults his mother, and kicks him in the groin. Though shy, cowardly, goofy, and cheerful, Maya also has a tough side, which is shown in Wreck-it Ralph 2 when she tells Darien to "get his [lazy] tushie back in line" and punches him in the face. She also shares multiple traits with her birth siblings. Like Sora, Maya is childish, kind, awkward, free-spirited, fearless, and optimistic.
Although she refuses to admit it, Maya is also a talented singer, in Wreck-it Ralph 2, she sings a parody of For the First Time in Ever from the film Frozen.
Maya is a strikingly beautiful and attractive teenage girl, inheriting her birth mother's brown hair and light blue eyes.
Her preferred outfit is a long turquoise shirt with a sun design, lime pants, and rainbow shoes, which have been worn in many promotional posters and merchandise for Luna Tempest and Wreck-it Ralph 2.
Maya: Staying Stunning
- "The fantabudelic teenage fashion designing Picasso is a brave and swag gal programmed from Luna Tempest: Rise of S.T.O.R.M. She may be innocent and adorable, but behind that pretty face is a mind of mystery and the ability to rap. If you make her mad, watch out for her electrokinesis! Her temper'll shock you so much you won't feel a thing!!!"
She loves her twin brother.
Vanellope and Maya are close.
Pen von Schweitzer
Pen and Maya never interacted, but made eye contact.
- "Ruana: You're so brave, Maya. I'm proud of you.
Maya: Thank you."
- ―Ruana praises Maya for coming out of the closet
When she first met Ruana, Maya becomes quite smitten with her, despite having a boyfriend.
In Sweet and Sour: Hacked, which takes place a week after her breakup with Glaiden, she nervously places a kiss on Ruana's cheek at Cherrina's suggestion. Ruana becomes shocked by this action and tells Maya that she is already dating a male Breakdancer from Spain. Embarassed and saddened by her response, Maya tells her how she understands and wants her to be happy. Before she runs off, heartbroken, Ruana stops her, places a kiss on her forehead, and calls her brave.
Maya is very overprotective of Candlehead, but she still loves her younger sister.
Maya had first met Shadow in Wreck-it Ralph 2 when she fell from the window into his arms. Their friendship is not revealed until the film's climax when they team up to save Ralph from the MCP's wrath.
Maya looks up to Elsa.
Like Elsa, Mariya looks up to Calhoun.
Maya is close to her, but a bit overprotective.
Maya likes him and thinks his crush on her is cute.
