* AdaptationalHeroism: While Pete has traditionally been a truly evil villain, in ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouseClubhouse'' and, to a lesser extent, ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'', he was played differently. In ''Goof Troop'' at least, he was a {{Jerkass}}, a ManipulativeBastard, and (as a result of the premise) an {{Abusive Parent|s}}, but he was also shown to [[EvenEvilHasStandards have standards]], fight against greater evils from time to time, and have a few PetTheDog moments, making him more of an UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist or AntiHero. In ''Mickey Mouse Clubhouse'', he is [[LighterAndSofter played much more sympathetically due to the target audience being younger]] to the point where he's not even very mean and actually gets along with the other characters. One episode of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' had a gruff but outright heroic Pete who was only positioned as a potential villain as a RedHerring.

A few incarnations of Pete in ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'' depict them as {{Punch Clock Villain}}s and are aware of it; they will help Mickey if it means it'll help Wasteland as a whole.

* VillainDecay: He used to be truly evil in his early shorts, even kidnapping Minnie on occasion. But around the 1940s, his character was toned down to just a selfish Jerkass who, while still mean to Mickey and the gang, wasn't truly evil. He still has his moments of outright villainy, however.

It seems to vary depending on what the setting requires. A domestic or slice of life setting will have him simply be a Jerkass, while a fantasy or adventure setting will feature more traditional villainy.

Added DiffLines:

Pete's brand of villainy has evolved subtly over the years, his intelligence is optional and his goals range from a simple con to taking over a country, but one thing remains the same in this selfish, menacing brute - ''Pete is up to no good.'' He gets what's coming to him with perfect LaserGuidedKarma, and yet he never learns.

As a villain and antagonist, Pete's most notable trait to date is that he has never learned the difference between fear and respect. As opposed to many Disney villains who lust for power, Pete is a bully who desires control over people; a goal that can never be accomplished since he has never displayed any self-control himself.

* DiabolicalDogCatcher: Pete was depicted as one in "The Mad Dog" (1932) and "The Worm Turns" (1937). Both times he tries to seize Pluto, and when Pluto resists, Pete resorts to actually trying to flat-out ''[[DisproportionateRetribution murder the dog with a shotgun!]]''
