* '''Filemón:''' Full name '''Filemón Pi'''. Slightly less tall than Mortadelo, usually wears a white shirt and red trousers, and has two hairs on the top of his head. He is Mortadelo's chief and always sent on assignments with him, a job which he doesn't enjoy since that makes him suffer the consequences of Mortadelo's goofs more often than anyone else. Of all the characters, Filemón the only one displaying some common sense and occasionally a hint of GenreSavvy. At least once, he has proved to have an [[PhotographicMemory extraordinary memory]] by reciting the whole ''DonQuixote'' by heart. Mortadelo calls him "Boss" for no real reason (see TheArtifact below)

** A [[WholePlotReference story-long]] one to [[DonQuixote Don Quixote]] in ''Mortadelo de la Mancha''.

** A [[WholePlotReference story-long]] one to [[DonQuixote [[Literature/DonQuixote Don Quixote]] in ''Mortadelo de la Mancha''.



** One particularly extreme password was reciting DonQuixote ''in its entirety''. After unsuccessfully trying to convince the guard on the other side of the door to skip the password for once, Filemón just starts reciting aloud the whole book, [[PhotographicMemory which he proves to know by heart]]. Time passes, it rains, Filemón grows a beard, and right before he's done reciting the book, the door collapses. When Mortadelo and Filemón enter the building while shaving their beards, they notice the guard has died of old age.

* WinsbyDoingAbsolutelyNothing: A running gag in the album "El ascenso" is that Mort and Phil do all the work to catch criminals that by a series od ContrivedCoincidences always end up falling in the hands of rival agent Migájez, who then takes all the credit.

* FunWithAcronyms: The two agents work for T.I.A. (tía means aunt in Spanish and also sounds very similar to C.I.A.); one of the older nemesis organizations was the A.B.U.E.L.A. ("grandmother")

The two agents work for T.I.A. (tía means aunt in Spanish and also sounds very similar to C.I.A.); one of the older nemesis organizations was the A.B.U.E.L.A. ("grandmother")[[note]]As stated in one comic, the acronym stands for Agentes Bélicos Ultramarinos Especialistas en Líos Aberrantes (Overseas War Agents Specialized in Aberrant Trouble).[[/note]] ("grandmother"). And "La Vuelta" featured one-off villains T.I.O.[[note]]Trojans Invictus Orbi[[/note]] ("uncle"), which prompted some lampshading from Mortadelo:
-->T.I.O.? Ha, ha! T.I.A. against T.I.O.? Hey, why don't you put the matter in hands of one of those "marriage counselors" and have them air their dirty laundry?

* NotWithTheSafetyOnYouWont: PlayedForLaughs in "Los bomberos". At the end, the BigBad is about to hammer in a huge missile to blow everything up, but Mortadelo tells him he won't be able to do it because the ''hammer's'' safety is on. When the BigBad looks at the hammer, confused, [[GoLookAtTheDistraction Mortadelo knocks him out.

-->'''Mortadelo:''' ''(after being rescued by Filemón when a bird attempted to eat him while he was in an insect disguise)'' What a dreadful experience, boss! I've seen its esophagus, its craw and its sternum... from '''inside'''!

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In a short story, the Super grows tired of Mortadelo and Filemón's incompetence and plots to get them fired. He tasks them with keeping safe a very important document, only to steal it himself. After his attempts to steal the document fail one after another, he overhears Mortadelo talking to the T.I.A. managing director and mentioning that the document is hidden in a cigar they left on the Super's desk... which turns out to be [[OhCrap the same cigar he is smoking]]. The Super is subsequently fired (but thankfully for him, NegativeContinuity is in effect).

** Lampshaded in a feature about the first movie in a ''Top Comic'' album, where a brief allegedly written by the Superintendent states that Bacterio was hired as a lab intern while the T.I.A. searched for an actual scientist, and the reason he's still around is that the position is still vacant.
