* {{Foil}}: To John Smith. Both are great warriors who are immensely popular with their people and fall in love with Pocahontas. An interesting contrast that shows up if one is to bring in ''Disney/PocahontasIIJourneyToANewWorld'' is the reaction each man has to losing her. Pocahontas was set by her father to marry Kocoum, and after he catches her and John Smith in a romantic moment together he gives into a violent jealous rage and tries to murder him which leads to his being shot by Smith's comrade Thomas in response. Later on in the sequel he finds his affections for her rivaled in a new "John", Rolfe in this case, and whilst saddened by losing her is ultimately willing to let her go and wish the best for her.

* AndZoidberg: Because of her being in BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins, she sort of has a hard time blending in well with the other princesses with their pimped out dresses. As such she is almost always the one who gets cut out of merchandise. The sequel does give her a reasonably pimped out dress when she first arrives in England.
* ArrangedMarriage: With Kocoum. Kocoum asks for Pocahontas' hand and her father bethrothes her to him - she has no say in it.

* ThrillSeeker: Her eyes positively light up (contrasted humourously with the absolute terror of Meeko) when she's about to paddle down a large waterfall. Prior to that there was the dive off an extremely high cliff.

* ClassicVillain: A combination of Greed and Wrath. Radcliffe wants to own land and have everything that he desires. He desires to control everything and have everything. He is also a bigot and a racist and exhibits hateful behaviour towards Natives, so much that he wants to eradicate them.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He leads an expedition to Virginia to find gold. His EvilPlan is to colonise the Native-Americans.

* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Doubles for a ZeroPercentApprovalRating. While his men and underlings greatly trust and admire him [[spoiler:at least at first]], everyone in the palace, as Wiggins denotes, thinks of him as a pathetic social climber, whose last chance of glory is a semi-prestitious journey they actually deem doomed to fail. Ratcliffe even fantasizes about proving those "royal backstabbers" wrong by returning with eons of gold.

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: By means of making a joke, he inadvertedly inspires Ratcliffe's theory of the Natives harboring the gold for themselves.

* ManipulativeBastard: Towards Percy. Whenever Percy has the chance to eat something, Meeko is always there to snatch it away from him. On one occasion, after he hordes a pile of bones intended for the two of them to share, Meeko [[ThrowTheDogABone offers a single bone to Percy.]] Then he breaks it and offers him a ''smaller'' piece, before finally [[YankTheDogsChain eating it just as Percy was about to grab it]].

* NiceGuy: A loyal animal companion, and probably the most likeable animal character of the film; although that's not saying much, as the others are a racoon who is a ManipulativeBastard, and a dog who seems [[DesignatedVillain expected to be viewed as a bad guy]] due to initially being loyal to the movie's villian.

* TookALevelInJerkass: While he while bigoted towards the Native Americans, it was more out of insensitivity than actual malice and he quickly wised up after meeting Pocahontas. In the sequel, he acts more arrogant like his real-life counterpart.

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Very small one, but during the "Savages" song, when he and the settlers rush up to "save" John Smith, his expression of horror does appear to be sincere.
