* TookALevelInJerkass: Crosses this line in a few episodes, perhaps most notably in "Adventures in Squirrel-sitting" and "Pie in the Sky".
* VitriolicBestBuds: Constantly fights with Dale over little things (or occasionally, over Gadget). But at the end of the day, they're always still HeterosexualLifePartners.

* AllWorkVsAllPlay: All Play to Chip's All Work.
* BadassAdorable

!!!Monterey Jack
* {{Acrofatic}}[=/=]StoutStrength
* AndThisIsFor: In "Three Men and a Booby".
* AustralianAccent
* AwesomeAussie
* {{Badbutt}}
** BadassFamily: Cheddarhead Charlie and Camembert Kate (both of which appeared in the series).
** BadassMustache
* BerserkButton: On "A Creep From the Deep," there was a RunningGag where Monty's tail has been "slammed, singed, kinked, and crushed." When an octopus yanks on it, he goes ballistic.
* BigEater: Especially when it comes to cheese.
* TheBigGuy
* BoisterousBruiser
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Whenever he smells cheese, he goes into a trance and (sometimes) causes a path of destruction in his wake. The local police precinct recognize him from the many times he's stolen cheese slices off their sandwiches and burgers, cheese hunks from the mouse traps, and even a bag of cheese-flavored popcorn.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DinnerDeformation: In "Out To Launch".
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Monty's appetite for cheese has been subtly compared to a drug addiction in "Mind Your Cheese and Q's."
* EmbarrassingNickname: His mom ''still'' calls him "Cheezer".
* FunetikAksent: In printed works.
* GreenEyes
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Huge Guy to Gadget's Tiny Girl.
* LandDownUnder: Monty's homeland.
* LeeroyJenkins
* NoodleIncident: Monty only half-remembers the adventures he's been on, and there was an incident involving cheesebread and Gadget's father, Geegaw, that led to a friendship dissolution. Then there's the matter of Monty's cheese attacks -- how exactly did Monty come to have them if it's not genetic (both his mom and dad have been shown in the series and there were no signs of either Cheddarhead Charlie and Camembert Kate having them).
* PapaWolf
* PunnyName: Monterey Jack (a real type of cheese)
* [[RunawayBride Runaway Groom]]: He missed out on his own wedding to Desiree D'Allure because he had a cheese attack and chased after a cheese truck that was parked across the street.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: El Monty Grande in "When Mice Were Men."
* TheStoryteller
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He does look a lot like his father Cheddarhead Charlie (who coincidentally was voiced by JimCummings. "Parental Discretion Retired," the episode that introduced Cheddarhead Charlie, was one of the episodes that had PeterCullen as Monterey Jack).
* SuperStrength
* SupremeChef
* TeamChef: Even though most of what he cooks is cheese.
* TeamDad
* ThemeNaming: Monty's name, as well as his parents', are taken from cheese. "Cheezer" sort of fits in here, too.
* TopHeavyGuy: And heavy he is, for a mouse at least.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Cheeeeezzzze!!!
* WeaksauceWeakness: See TrademarkFavoriteFood above and WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes below
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Or in this case, cats (though kittens and Fat Cat's goons don't bother him).

!!!Gadget Hackwrench
* AbsentMindedProfessor
* ActionGirl
* BadassAdorable
* BadassBookworm
* BareYourMidriff: "Well, not what I'm wearing right now, ''obviously.'' Other things I wear. Well, not all of them. Some of them. Beach things and things."
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: In contrast with her teammates, who are {{Half Dressed Cartoon Animal}}s.
* BerserkButton: Never deceive her and harm her friends. Ever.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: You do ''not'' want to get on her bad side. Just see "The Case of the Cola Cult", which features her going into full ActionGirl mode to rescue her friends.
* BuffySpeak: Once in a while she loses the thread of what she was saying.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Golly!"
* TheChick
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Somewhat. As Monty put it "Gadget's elevator doesn't go all the way to the top floor."
* CrazyPrepared: Just see what she's carrying with her.
* DerailedForDetails: Her famous rants are also known as Gadgetisms.
* DitzyGenius
* DudeMagnet
* EightiesHair
* EveryoneLovesBlondes
* FurIsSkin: Does she even have fur, besides her FurryFemaleMane?
** [[WordOfGod Tad Stones]] once claimed jokingly she does have fur and tattoos underneath it.
* FurryFemaleMane
* GadgeteerGenius: TropeNamer.
* GeniusBruiser
* GogglesDoNothing: She does wear them over her eyes occasionally when flying the Ranger Wing, but that's no excuse to be wearing them on her head ''all'' the time.
** Bear in mind her status as DitzyGenius, however. She may leave them on her head so she doesn't forget them... and then forget that she left them on her head.
* GoshDangItToHeck
* HairColorDissonance: Gadget's hair color switching between almost anything from gold to orange is a particularly {{Egregious}} example of AnimationBump.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Gadget fits this stereotype; she's innocent, kind, young and attractive.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Allows her to be CrazyPrepared.
* HeartwarmingOrphan: A little older than the standard example, but who doesn't feel bad for her when she looks at a picture of her DisappearedDad and tears up?
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Tiny Girl to Monty's Huge Guy.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal
* LethalChef: Not exactly lethal, but Dale tells Foxglove that Gadget's cuisine always tastes like machine oil (which comes with being a mechanic-cum-inventor)
* ObliviousToLove: ''Very'' much so. According to popular fanon she may be faking it.
** Maybe she just isn't interested in chipmunks. She was pretty obviously attracted to Sparky. (Unfortunately for her, ''he'' was even more ObliviousToLove.)
** Furthermore, Gadget is aware of how attractive she is and is willing to use it to her advantage in the absence of any other option at the request of her team.
* OnlyOneName: Yes, Gadget has a last name, but after the FiveEpisodePilot it's never used again, and even then it was only used when naming her father, Geegaw Hackwrench; meaning Gadget's last name being Hackwrench is really only a logical assumption.
* ParentalAbandonment
* ScienceHero
* TheSmartGirl
* TheSmurfettePrinciple
* SuperStrength
* TeamMom
* TechnoBabble
* TenMinuteRetirement: In "The Case of the Cola Cult".
* TomboyishName

* ForgotICouldFly: Has to be reminded he has this ability sometimes.
* FourLeggedInsect
* PowerpuffGirlHands: His hands are mitten-shaped. At least he does have thumbs.
* SuperStrength
* TeamPet
* TimmyInAWell: His main job in the Rescue Rangers.
* TheUnintelligible: Zipper ''can'' speak, but his speech is incredibly fast and high-pitched. Only the other Rescue Rangers are able to interpret what he says.

!!!Fat Cat
* BigBad
* CatsAreMean
* DeadpanSnarker: Mainly to his [[SurroundedByIdiots minions]].
* EvilIsPetty: In "Flash the Wonder Dog," where he attempts to destroy the titular character's reputation simply because he wants a cat protagonist instead.
* FatBastard
* FatCat: It is his name after all.
* Creator/JimCummings
* LargeHam
* [[ManOfWealthAndTaste Cat of Wealth and Taste]]: He has a whole VillainSong about it in the pilot.
* RightHandCat: Was one to Klordane before going solo.

!!!Professor Norton Nimnul
* AlliterativeName
* BadBoss: As seen in "Catteries Not Included" towards his robot dogs and "Fake Me to Your leader" towards his giant bugs.
* BaldOfEvil
* CardCarryingVillain: Ever since he has fully embraced evil.
* DeadpanSnarker: Occasionaly.
* EvilRedhead
* GetOutOfJailFreeCard
* InkSuitActor: According to a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vysEma2Q-lE "Making Of" special]] it was revealed that Nimnul was a caricature of Bruce Talkington (1949-2000), who wrote for ''Rescue Rangers'' and several other DisneyAfternoon series. Seeing the "real" Nimnul is rather uncanny.
* Creator/JimCummings
* LargeHam: One of the largest in the series.
* LaughingMad
* MadScientist
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate
* TheNapoleon: He appears to be about three feet tall.
* NoIndoorVoice
* TheyCalledMeMad
* TopHeavyGuy: He might be short, but even then his legs are way too tiny.

* ShoutOut: Sparky is based on Dr. Emmett L. Brown from ''Film/BackToTheFuture''.

* DecoyDamsel

* FakeOutMakeOut

* GirlOfTheWeek

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Her boyfriend is several times her size.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal
* IBrokeANail
* IdenticalStranger
* InkSuitActor: Her voice actress, Deborah Walley, pretty much redid her role as Gidget from ''Gidget Goes Hawaiian''.
* MyNaymeIs: Go ahead, try to spell her name correctly. See SpellMyNameWithAnS below.
* OneShotCharacter
* TheScottishTrope: The spelling of her name sometimes leads to this.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Apparently ItsAllThereInTheManual somewhere (said manual being extremely hard to come by), but no one is 100% sure just how her name is really supposed to be spelled. The Writer's Bible spells it "Lahwhinie", the DVD subtitles spell it "Lawhinie" which is just how most people spell it, and some closed-captions during TV airings spell it "Louwhiney". That's three practically official sources which contradict each other.
** The german synchro actually managed to give her a new name that is just as unspellable.
* TwinSwitch: She tricks Gadget into switching places with her so she wouldn't have to be put through the cerimonial tests that would qualify her to be queen of a Hawaiian tribe.
