* ArchEnemy: Sylvester is this to him, but it doesn't work both ways (Sylvester's ArchEnemy being Tweety Pie)



* BumblingSidekick: Oddly enough plays this role for Daffy in ''Daffy Duck's Fantastic Island''.



* ComicallyInvincibleHero: It plays a lot into the gags however.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Speedy's early design (in which Speedy wore a pink shirt, had no pants, had a gold front tooth, and looked stereotypically Mexican with his mop of greasy black hair and broken Spanish [[note]]the latter of which stayed when the character was changed into the way he is seen now[[/note]]) looks ''nothing'' like his current self.

** ComicallyInvincibleHero: It plays a lot into A possible reason for Daffy's more malicious persona during the gags however.De Patie Freleng era was to remedy this trope and [[WorthyOpponent utilise a greater malice]] that Speedy could come off as more sympathetic and fallible against (much akin to Yosemite Sam replacing the more pitiful Elmer Fudd as Bugs' enemy). While still a [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain bumbling loser]], Daffy often managed to [[NotSoHarmlessVillain genuinely challenge and intimidate]] Speedy much more often than Sylvester did previously. In a couple of cases [[TeamRocketWins Speedy even ended up the loser of the short]].


Added DiffLines:

* KarmicTrickster: A cunning Karmic Trickster when working to benefit his innocent mouse amigos, though often a somewhat simple MinionWithAnFInEvil when working with less scrupulous co-stars such as Daffy and Witch Hazel.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceMice: A mouse who pretty much only steals cheese to help his compadres.


Added DiffLines:

* PingPongNaivete: Similar to Tweety, while often more a cunning Karmic Trickster ObfuscatingStupidity, there are times when Speedy genuinely comes off as incredibly naive. His unrequited attempts to make peace with the then-plainly hateful Daffy have an almost [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk tragic tone]] at times (eg. ''Moby Duck'').


Added DiffLines:

* SuperSpeed: The Fastest Mouse in all Mexico!


Added DiffLines:

* VitriolicBestBuds: With Daffy. In some of their latest cartoons (like "Fiesta Fiasco" and "Skyscraper Caper") they appear to be somewhat friends.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: With Daffy.

* ChivalrousPervert: Speedy Gonzales is a friend of everybody's sister Carmella!Carmella! And in one cartoon he proves to be quite the romantic, serenading a female mouse with a guitar. (Until Sylvester interrupts his date.)
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In one cartoon, Daffy calls a Roman Centurion a "Fathead", but regrets it when the guy, who takes offense to it, comes to confront them. Daffy tries to save face by saying the insult was directed at Speedy, but Speedy gets them in even ''more'' trouble by being a little too honest about it...

* KarmaHoudini: Some of the Depatie-Freleng era Daffy/Speedy cartoons would have incidental characters that conned Daffy into chasing Speedy but got away with it at the end. Examples include Mayor Katt in ''Feather Finger'', El Supremo in ''Daffy's Diner'', and (to some extent) The Loco Crow in ''Chili Corn Corny''.
