* ChekhovsSkill: His sheer clumsiness, as proven when Quimby shows up and there's an impostor in the same room. Quimby knows which Gadget is which just because one of them happened to attack him with a stray mallet [[SpannerInTheWorks that just happened to go off by itself at exactly the right moment...]]

** Also his tendency to mistake Brain for a MAD agent. In "MAD Trap" Brain is savvy enough to intentionally pretend to be criminal to distract Gadget away from a booby trap.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: He's a villain, but does little aside from lounging around while Dr. Claw either pets him or takes his anger over failed plans out on him.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: He's a villain, but does little aside from lounging around while Dr. Claw either pets him or takes his anger over failed plans out on him. Averted on a few rare occasions when he pushes a button on Dr. Claw's computer or on the MAD Mobile's control panel.

Added DiffLines:

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Gadget would always prevent Penny and Brain from ever coming with him on missions because "it's much too dangerous". Really, the missions are much too dangerous for him since he's a HorribleJudgeOfCharacter, an InspectorOblivious, and basically TooDumbToLive. One of the biggest reasons why he succeeds and survives is ''because'' of Penny and Brain's interventions, which he is never aware of.

* HiddenDepths: Though incompetent as an actual sleuth, Gadget often gives rather insightful lessons [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle about day-to-day lifestyle]] to his niece at the end of each episode.

* CatsAreMean: [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything Supposedly.]]
* EvilLaugh: Has a great one made of cat hisses. It's pretty much [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything the only way you can tell]] that [[CatsAreMean this cat is mean.]]

* CatsAreMean: [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything Supposedly.]]
]] He doesn't really do anything evil, though, and in many cases he actually comes off as more of a victim to Dr. Claw's outbursts.
* EvilLaugh: Has a great one made of cat hisses. It's pretty much [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything the only way you can tell]] that [[CatsAreMean this cat is mean.]]he's a bad guy.
