Added DiffLines:

* VileVillainSaccharineShow: A goofy animated movie about partying farm animals, with a sadistic coyote who shows signs of being a serial killer. Why not?

* BunnyEarsLawyer: More pronounced in the series, where he's regularly a goofy idiot but comes up with quality plans when necessary.



* HiddenDepths: One episode shows that he can be a quality leader under most circumstances.



* BettyAndVeronica: "Abby & Veronica" plays with it. Veronica is Abby's old friend that actively charms Otis and the other guys into doing whatever she wants. Veronica doesn't love any of them, but it nonetheless makes Abby jealous and angry, so she tries harder to woo Otis.



* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She mentioned before that she was the only girl in a family full of brothers.

to:

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: OneOfTheBoys: Which she doesn't mind until her old friend/rival Veronica visits and all the guys fawn all over her.
* RaisedByDudes:
She mentioned before that she was the only girl in a family full of brothers.brothers.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Downplayed. Bessy is a major character, but Abby appears far more often and is more likely to take part in shenanigans with Otis and the others.



* OddFriendship: With Peck, a guy he has tried to eat more than once.



* TheChewToy: He gets most of the accidents out of all the animals.

to:

* TheChewToy: He gets most of the accidents out of all the animals. A parody of an OnTheNext segment was made up exclusively of clips of Peck being injured in different ways.
* OddFriendship: With Freddie, a guy who has tried to eat him more than once.



* IOweYouMyLife: "Cow's Best Friend" follows the basic beats, with Duke annoying Otis to no end and not stopping until the score is even. Otis fakes various situations, has to repeatedly save Duke whenever things go wrong, tells the truth, gets saved for real, and is told he owes Duke for the various incidents that endangered his life.



* OnlySaneMan: Often expresses mundane and cautious courses of action.



* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He appears more in the earlier episodes. In later episodes, he tends to be off doing other stuff.


Added DiffLines:

* EverybodyCallsHimBarkeep: To the point where the animals are surprised to learn what his last name is.


Added DiffLines:

* OutOfFocus: He appears more in the earlier episodes. In later episodes, he tends to be off doing other stuff and appears more infrequently.

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: As mischievous as they were in the movie, they were still Otis' friends and had his back when things got tough. Now they're complete jerks in their appearance in the series.


Added DiffLines:

* DemotedToExtra: She only had two speaking lines in the series, and maybe a few more nonspeaking cameos, but that's it.

[[folder:Movie Exclusive Characters]]
!!Ben
-->'''Voiced by''': Sam Elliot

A cow and Otis's adoptive father.

----
* ArcWords: "A strong man stands up for himself. A ''stronger'' man, stands up for others."
* BadassAdorable: A cow who defends the other barn animals from harm.
* BadassGrandpa: Fights coyotes and protects the other animals from harm.
* CoolOldGuy: Can take on a pack of coyotes.
* HeroicSacrifice: Dies protecting the hens from the coyotes.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He may be harsh on his adoptive son, but he definitely loves him and he is only trying to make him grow up a bit. It's made clear that, despite all the bickering he and Otis do, there's a very strong bond between them.
* KilledOffForReal: The first Nickelodeon character to die.
* ThePatriarch: Fittingly for a middle-aged black cow, he's the tough guy of his family.
** The farmer writes "A Good Cow" on his grave sign.
* PetTheDog: He does sometimes show genuine love for Otis.
** Although stern, he does care for the barnyard animals' safety.

!!Daisy
-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/CourteneyCox

A pregnant cow who arrives on the farm with Bessy.

----
* NiceGirl: Immediately takes a liking to Otis.
* SoleSurvivor: Daisy and Bessy are the sole survivors of a storm that wiped out their herd.

!!Miles
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_53263.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/DannyGlover

An elderly mule.

----
* BadassGrandpa: Justified, as he's a mule.
* CoolOldGuy: Maintains peace in the barnyard.

!!Dag
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_53265.jpg]]
-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/DavidKoechner

A cruel and carnivorous coyote.

----
* AxCrazy: He's a psychopathic "lady killer" in his own words. Not only does he keep parts of the corpses of his prey to use as trophies, he clearly gets a kick out of killing other animals. It's subtly implied that not even humans are safe from him, as he tells Otis that, if he breaks their deal, he and his pack will slaughter everyone in the farm, the farmer being presumably included.
* BigBad: The leader of the coyote pack that is terrorizing the farm. Naturally, he is also the most cunning and dangerous of them all.
* DirtyCoward: Dag prefers to sic his pack on others and waits for an opportunity to sneak attack others when they don't see him coming. He also begs and cowers for his life the moment things go south for him.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The very first thing he does in the movie is sneaking into the chicken coop with his pack and terrorizing the hens with his chain, which is decorated with the legs of his previous victims, all while sadistically chuckling. All of it demonstrates just how [[AxCrazy murderous and out of his mind he really is]].
* KickTheDog: If killing Ben and mocking Otis about it wasn't bad enough, he also tries to eat Maddy just because she called him a "meaner".
* KnightOfCerebus: The comedic tone of the film drops like a rock whenever he appears, not helped by his sadistic demeanour.
* ThoseWilyCoyotes
* WouldHurtAChild: He certainly wasn't going to spare Maddy just because of her young age.

!!Etta
-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/AndieMacDowell

A mother hen.

----
* MamaBear: Don't pick on Maddy.

!!Maddy
[[quoteright:268:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maddy.png]]
-->'''Voiced by''': Madeline Lovejoy

A young chick who enjoys playing with Otis. She is slightly troublesome for her mother Etta to take care of because she often wanders off from the chicks.

----
* BigBrotherWorship: She certainly seems to view Otis as a heroic big brother, and the later definitely doesn't mind. [[BigBrotherInstinct It's when Dag kidnaps her and the rest of the hens that he finally decides he's had enough of the coyote]].
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Looks up to Otis and hates Dag.
* NiceGirl: She is quite compassionate. She immediatly tries to comfort Otis when she sees him mourning for his father.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Has a large head and small body.

* HasAType: In one episode, he admits that he's into women who are bigger than he is.



* ActionGirl: For one thing, she's an excellent wrestler.



* GirlyBruiser: Very dainty and feminine, but don't let that fool you into thinking she can't fight.



* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He appears more in the earlier episodes.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroOfAnotherStory: Several episodes allude to him having a very wide variety of hobbies and interests that he tends to be absent from the barnyard for. We never really get to see them beyond cutaway gags.
* NoNameGiven: We don't know what his full name is, though one episode reveals that his last name is Buyer (which leads to a hilarious misunderstanding on the animals' part).

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: Originally more of a joke than anything in the original movie, she appears much more frequently in the show, making much more of an effort to expose the animals. Doubles as FromNobodyToNightmare with how antagonistic she's gotten towards the animals since those days.
