** Mistoffelees is the only all-black cat, described as being black from his ears to the tip of his tail. [[note]]The realities of stage production, where lighting tends to wash out all-black costumes means that the Mistoffelees cat is usually portrayed as a tuxedo cat to bring the costume to life; the cat himself, however, is described as being all-black[[/note]] He is the most mystical cat, capable of manipulating light, telekinesis and producing electricity from his paws. He is implied to have some hypnosis ability, a psychic sixth sense, and is revealed to be capable of teleporting others or himself. In the Invitation to the Jellicle Ball, his dance is paired with the all-white Victoria for colour contrast.

Added DiffLines:

* CatStereotype:
** Victoria is the only all-white cat. Her role is performed mainly through dance, where she's implied to be a symbol of grace and innocence, and is extremely sensitive to the moods around her. Her coming-of-age moment sends all the cats into a frenzy. In the filmed stage production, her dance and reaction scenes are often paired with the black Mistoffelees for colour contrast.
** Skimbleshanks is a ginger tom. He's an engaging, cheeky cat who has a reputation for being the hero of the railways; the cats believe the trains only run smoothly because Skimbleshanks is there to keep the humans in line and on the job by either fixing all the problems that crop up or alerting the humans to issues so that they can fix the problems in time. His one flaw is described as being his temper, which gets triggered by disorder; he can be quite draconian about ensuring everything and everyone is kept in order so that the trains can run smoothly.

* BeyondTheImpossible: Macavity has broken every human law, including the law of gravity. When he kidnaps Old Deuteronomy, partially by temporarily pacifying all the cats with mass hypnosis, the Rum Tum Tugger suggests to the cats that an even more impossible solution to Macavity's dastardly deed does exist -- asking for the help of a cat who can conjure seven kittens from out of a hat. Mistoffelees, who has spent the entire show demurely wiggling his fingers in the background to magically open car boots and change the stage lighting, rescues Old Deuteronomy by simply teleporting him home from wherever it is Macavity has imprisoned him. While two other cats are implied to have a psychic sixth sense, no other cats are implied to be capable of the things Macavity and Mistoffelees can do.

* TheQuietOne: Electra is often described as a sombre kitten..kitten, and Rum Tum Tugger states that Mistoffelees has a reputation for being very shy, quiet and aloof, and Mistoffelees does display hesitation in using some of his powers when the limelight is turned on him; however, Rum Tum Tugger also suggests that Mistoffelees may be using that reputation partially to deceive people and cats into underestimating him.
