* ArchivePanic: While not as infamous about this as WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck, Mickey's career in animation, comics, tv shows, video games and merchandise spanning well over 85 years is very tough to manage for a casual fan. And considering he is the face of Disney, they're unlikely to stop making stuff with him anytime soon.

* CreatorsPet: Walt clearly loved Mickey like a son and wanted the rest of the world to love him the same, hence why he put him front and center of the Disney company whilst being a huge ControlFreak about what could and couldn't be done with him. As a result, Mickey's name [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mickey_Mouse#Pejorative_use_of_Mickey.27s_name became pejorative slang in some parts for basic and underwhelming]].

* MyRealDaddy: While practically synonymous with Creator/WaltDisney, some attribute Mickey more to Creator/UbIwerks as he was the one who designed him. Others opt for co-creator status (Disney with his personality, Iwerks with his design). There's also Creator/FloydGottfredson, who retained Mickey's adventurous personality in the comics for several decades.

* VanillaProtagonist: One of the most iconic cases. Mickey's increasingly laid back personality made him look like a FlatCharacter compared to more abrasive and emotional co stars such as Donald, Goofy or even Pluto, thus he slowly ended up DemotedToExtra in the classic shorts. Modern projects attempt with wavering success to make him star material again, even if ultimately, his StraightMan role is still the most iconic.

A common portrayal of Mickey in modern projects tends to make him something of a CompositeCharacter of himself, combining the NiceGuy persona with the mischievous adventurer persona.

** This is also the case for voice actors. In the modern day, most people associate and accept Mickey's voice with the late Wayne Alwine, who had been doing Mickey's voice since the early 70s.

* DesignatedProtagonistSyndrome: Despite being Disney's most iconic character, Mickey has suffered from being overshadowed by his friends (especially Donald and Goofy), due to his transition to a more bland persona. Thankfully, this has been [[CharacterRerailment remedied]] in more recent years.
