In-universe only Nakoma makes a comment about his good looks. Fandom doesn't count
* ChickMagnet: Both in-universe and out. A sizable bout of the ''Pocahontas'' fandom prefers him over John Smith.

* ButtMonkey: It would seem that pretty much the entire universe started to completely hate him as soon as he landed in America. He's quite frequently tripping, falling from high heights, or smashing into things, all because he happens to be the [[DesignatedVillain villain's dog]] [[spoiler: at least before he switches owners]]. However, no one likes torturing him more than Meeko the raccoon.

Added DiffLines:
* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: In real life, John Rolfe agonized over the "moral repercussions" of marrying Pocahontas "a heathen". In this version, John Rolfe didn't think like that all and only didn't initiate a relationship with her because he thought that she was still in love with John Smith.

Added DiffLines:
* UptightLovesWild: While not entirely a stiff, John Rolfe is more reserved and mellow than the adventurous and curious Pocahontas.

The daughter of the chief of the Powhatan tribe in Virginia, she's an adventurous and curious young woman who is immediately intrigued by the white colonists, led by Governor Ratcliffe, who newly arrive in the New World--unlike the rest of her tribe, who fears them. She meets John Smith, one of the settlers who has made a life of adventuring and killing "savages", whom she teaches to accept people that are different than he. They eventually fall in love, but are torn apart by the distrust and violence their two people have for each other. She later becomes an emissary for her people and travels to England, where she falls in love with John Rolfe.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Her long, silky hair is never so much as mussed in the couple of scrapes she finds herself in, and she always looks majestic and noble.

Themes are not a character and therefore cannot be a Bigger Bad/Greater Scope Villain.
* BigBad: But because of his weak showing in terms of villainy, he is overshadowed by the themes of hate and xenophobia, which become the overlapping BiggerBad.
