Woody's original set in stone rival of Swedish descent, Wally was made to serve as Woody's short tempered comic foil, as Elmer Fudd was to WesternAnimation/BugsBunny, or as Squidward is to WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants. Slow witted, but short tempered.

* VillainProtagonist: While its a huge stretch to call Woody evil, he was by no means a paragon of virtue in his loonier days. He was often a [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish, self-serving troublemaker]] who wasn't above harassing or hurting other people to get what he wants. However, whether Woody is a AntiHero, trickster or villain really depends on the short and the time period of the character. However, while many shorts portrayed him as causing trouble for others around him, be it knowingly (stealing gas, heckling Papa Panda by tearing holes in his roof, breaking into a hotel owned by Wally Walrus, etc.) or just out of carelessness or ignorance, he is seldom portrayed as malicious, and [[KarmicTrickster more mischievous and playful, or just irritated by his hapless foes]], and he rarely instigated the conflicts in the first place. And in the 50's shorts and onward, and in ''New Woody Woodpecker Show'', he was given more sympathetic qualities.

Woody's girlfriend. While she only appeared in ''one'' of the original theatrical cartoons (and in a very one-dimensional role at that) she became a recurring character in the comics and became much more prominent in the newer show. Similar in personality to Woody, but much more dignified.
