[[folder:Tinker Fairies]]
!!All Tinker Fairies
* BadassNormal: In fairy terms anyway, they don't have any special powers but are quite good at coming up with gadgets.
* MrFixit
* WrenchWench

* {{Adorkable}}
* ButtMonkey
* MakingASpectacleOfYourself: Bobble wears corrective goggles (it's AllThereInTheManual) that make his eyes look ''huge''.
* NerdGlasses
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His full name is Phineas T. Kettle III (Three, not the Third), Esquire - but he's never once referred to as such besides in his own introduction.
* RedheadInGreen

* BigFun
* FatIdiot: He's good enough at tinkering, but he ''can'' be pretty dense at times.
* GentleGiant

!!Tinker Bell
* ActionGirl
* BerserkButton: As seen in ''The Great Fairy Rescue'', she really hates it when she hears a human say fairies don't exist.
* GadgeteerGenius
* FairySexy: Tinker Bell's outfit is skimpy even by fairy standards.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Though she's been softened up greatly from her original movie portrayal, she can still be impatient, temperamental and self-centered. Her jerkish qualities are stronger in the books than in the movies, though even in the movies she can be a bit of a jerk -- ''The Lost Treasure'' being the most prominent example.
* PluckyGirl
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Constantly, a lot of the problems in the films are usually caused by her.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Tinker Bell's appearance isn't altered much from the 1953 film, so her overall appearance is oddly simplistic compared to the other characters.
* ShesGotLegs: Her short dress accentuates her long, curvy legs, and it doesn't help that they get a slow pan up them when she's first revealed in said dress. The results are [[SomethingElseAlsoRises quite funny.]]
* TomboyishPonytail: In the books.
* {{Tsundere}}
* {{UST}}: With Terence after [[spoiler:he brought her a compass and broke her scepter accidentally]] in ''Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure''.

!!Fairy Mary
* ApronMatron
* LargeAndInCharge
* PrimAndProperBun
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She may not appreciate some of the shenanigans the tinker fairies pull, but is quick to recommend they take a break if they look overworked.
* RedheadInGreen

* TheSlacker: Apparently; whenever she's name-dropped it's because she's slacking off work.
* TheUnseen: Never appears onscreen, but Fairy Mary is often calling to her to tell her to stop loafing about and get back to work.

[[folder:Animal Fairies]]
!!All animal fairies
* FriendToAllLivingThings
* SpeaksFluentAnimal

* GirlishPigtails
* RedheadInGreen

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Has olive skin, but also freckles and brunette hair. Though considering her Latina original voice actress (America Ferrera) also has freckles, it's doesn't mean she's not supposed to be Latina.
* BreakoutCharacter: Despite being just a standard recurring member of Tink's friends in the films along with the other girls, she gets her own starring role in ''The Legend of the Neverbeast'', and a new [[TheOtherDarrin celebrity voice actor]] in Ginnifer Goodwin.
* [[spoiler: DisneyDeath]]
* DoesNotLikeShoes: At least in ''Great Fairy Rescue'' and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWWqQkT15zw some]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTYijbQLbzM of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWZ7nftZiXA the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FBlMfodET4 shorts]] she doesn't.
* FluffyTamer: With Gruff in ''The Legend of the Neverbeast.''
* FootFocus: In the short "Volley Bug" there are a couple of closeups of her feet dangling in the air.
* {{Tomboy}}: She's very physical and energetic, and wears shorts, contrasting most Fairies, who wear dresses. However, she switches it up for a more toyetic design in ''The Legend of the Neverbeast'', putting on a girly dress/skirt made of butterfly wings. She's still rather physical, though.
* TokenMinority: Fills the Latina slot in the movies, if her original voice actress (America Ferrera) is anything to go by.

[[folder:Light Fairies]]
!!All Light Fairies
* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows
* LightEmUp
* ThePowerOfTheSun

* FlowerInHerHair: Fira's hair is full of flowers.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Was referred to as "Moth" in her first appearance. This was apparently {{Retcon}}ned so that "Moth" is her nickname.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Seems to suffer from a panic/anxiety disorder.
* ProperlyParanoid: Very squeamish and since getting to know Tinkerbell, usually dreads whatever invention she comes up with.
* SassyBlackWoman
* TokenMinority: Fills the black slot in the films.

[[folder:Water Fairies]]
!!All Water Fairies
* ElementalPowers: Water, of course.
* TenderTears: Water fairies are very prone to crying.

* BalefulPolymorph: [[spoiler:Rani is transformed into a bat by mermaid song in the second book, with her consciousness trapped inside. By the end, the bat agrees to trade places with her, becoming a kind of Greek Chorus in her mind.]]
* AnArmAndALeg: Rani had to trade her wings to save Pixie Hollow.
* {{Determinator}}
* DisabilitySuperpower: Fairy wings soak up water, making it impossible to swim. Since Rani has no wings, she doesn't have this problem.
* HairDecorations: Wears a beaded headband.
* NiceGirl

* AsianAirhead
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Displays traces of this at times. In one of the shorts, she spacily-stares straight ahead while Fawn is tossing everyone seeds to plant.
* LiteralMinded: In ''Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure'' when Terrance tells her Tinker Bell exploded she thinks he means Tink literally exploded until he elaborates that he meant she lost her temper.
* RapunzelHair
* TokenMinority: Fills the Asian slot in the films.

[[folder:Garden Fairies]]
!!All Garden Fairies
* FloralThemeNaming: Among them '''Rose'''tta, Iris, Lily, Ivy, and Chloe (which is Greek for "green shoot").
* GreenThumb: Garden fairies instinctively know how to care for different plants.

* TheDitz: A mild case but she does have a problem focusing on things and focuses way too much on her own appearance, even in times of great duress.
* FlowerInHerHair: Wears a rose blossom in her hair.
* HartmanHips: They are ''huge''. Even compared to Tinker Bell's!
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead
* SouthernBelle: In the films and the shorts, she's voiced with a Southern accent.
* TerrifiedOfGerms: Ironic, since she's a garden fairy. In ''The Great Fairy Rescue'', she takes off her shoes to cross the muddy waters, and complains about getting mud on her bare feet. She nearly ruins the team's chances in ''The Pixie Hollow Games'' by refusing to get dirty. Extra ironic when she becomes an animal fairy in ''The Pirate Fairy'', with bugs lining up around her, much to her horror.

* InsufferableGenius: Offers advice to other garden-talent fairies, whether they want it or not.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* [[spoiler:UnSorcerer]]: [[spoiler:Iris is incomplete. She doesn't instinctively know how to take care of plants and has to write down what she learns in a notebook to remember it.]]

* AmbiguousDisorder: She tends to be a loner and one of her interests is watching grass grow.
* NiceHat: It's a big, yellow flower.
* TheQuietOne

* {{Adorkable}}: She's new and eager to do her best, making her this. Her nervous, but genuine, enthusiasm in ''The Pixie Hollow Games'' is a shining example of the trope.
* CatchPhrase: "Dig down deeper and break the streak!"
* {{Tomboy}}: Complete with short hair, an affinity for sports and a tomboyish voice.

* TearsOfFear
* TearsOfJoy
* TearsOfRemorse
* TenderTears ...you get the point.

[[folder:Dust Fairies]]
!!Fairy Gary
* LargeAndInCharge
* ManInAKilt

* {{Adorkable}}: He sure has had his moments.
* DemotedToExtra: After ''Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure''.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: The other Dust Talent Fairies poke fun at him for his attachment to Tink.
* NeatFreak: In ''Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure'', he cleaned off Tinker Bell's work bench - while she was working.
* NiceHat
* NiceGuy: He's good-natured and helpful.
* {{UST}}: With Tink.

* ActionGirl
* UsefulNotes/{{Alchemy}}: [[spoiler:The main conflict of ''The Pirate Fairy'' kicks off when Zarina creates different kinds of pixie dust related to various fairy talents, using a speck of blue pixie dust as a base. She even refers to it as alchemy at the end of the movie.]]
* BeautyMark: One under her left eye.
* BreakTheHaughty: When [[spoiler:she is betrayed by James and the other pirates, imprisoned in a lantern, and thrown to her intended death.]]
* [[spoiler: {{High Heel Face Turn}}]]
* LettingHerHairDown: After she leaves Pixie Hollow and joins the pirates.
* LightningBruiser
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Her face and eyes look a little more naturalistic than the rest of the Fairies, and her outfit is MUCH more complex and detailed. She looks like a character from another series transplanted into Pixie Hollow. Opposite of the more simplistic Tinker Bell.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Most regular Fairies are only moderately stronger than you'd expect a five-inch tall person to be -- it took four of them to carry a block of ice that's about six inches on each side. Zarina on the other hand successfully engages in a swordfight with a ''human being'', and even pushes him back after blocking his sword-thrust with a blade the size of a sewing needle!
* PirateGirl
* WildHair: As pointed out by Rosetta.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Almost. Hurt that no one appreciated her talent and devastated after she was fired from her life’s purpose, Zarina stole the blue dust, which was vital to all life in Pixie Hollow. [[spoiler: Luckily she came to her senses and took the dust back from the pirates before any damage was done.]]

[[folder:Fast-Flying Fairies]]
!!All Fast-Flying Fairies
* SuperSpeed: compared to other fairies.

* AlphaBitch: At first.
** LovableAlphaBitch: She eventually comes to terms with the rest of the gang, and stops being so rude and nasty to everyone. She's now just mildly-arrogant and snarky.
* BreakTheHaughty: In ''Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue''.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Vidia occasionally does the decent thing and she seems to have a soft spot for Prilla in the books. She's also not willing to see Tinker Bell killed and pinned to a board in ''The Great Fairy Rescue'', despite being frequently annoyed by her.
* DemotedToExtra: The antagonist of the first film, but has no speaking lines in the second. A major character again by the third, but just "part of the cast" in the next couple (albeit with the most lines of the non-Tink cast in ''The Pirate Fairy'').
* DoesNotLikeShoes: At least in the chapter books.
* ElementalPowers: Air, in the films. Although her talent is explicitly [[SuperSpeed fast-flying]], the first movie shows her also having the power to manipulate air to create tiny whirlwinds.
* {{Expy}}: In design, she's similar to [[{{Disney/Hercules}} Megara]].
* GrayEyes
* HeelFaceTurn: In the first ''Tinker Bell'', she and Tinker Bell are enemies. In ''Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue'', she develops a change of heart and becomes friends with Tink and the other fairies. She's still snarky and crabby like before, but is also willing to laugh with the others and even engages in ''group hugs''.
* {{Irony}}: Winds up as a tinker fairy during the switched talents subplot of ''The Pirate Fairy''. She does not take this well.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: An egotistical, vain sort of fairy, but is ''horrified'' when Tinker Bell is captured by humans and looks about to be victimized like a pinned butterfly collection. She also does genuinely like Prilla. She even helps Iridessa breathe through her panicky moments.
** Becomes something like a Type A {{Tsundere}} after a while. It is, after all, ''Vidia'' who is shown wiping away a tear [[spoiler: saying goodbye to Gruff]]. This makes her, aside from Fawn, the only one to definitely shed tears over it.
* LonersAreFreaks: The supporting material includes a lot of commentary about the other fairies not wanting to be around her because she's so grouchy and snarky.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Happens in ''The Great Fairy Rescue'' when Lizzie takes Tinkerbell in the house, because ''she'' slammed the door of the makeshift house. This is one of Vidia's first signs of her change of heart.
* OhCrap: She suddenly gets one after accidentally revealing her thistle plot in front of everyone.
* RapunzelHair
* ShadowArchetype: For Tinker Bell.
* SixthRanger: While not really a FiveManBand to start with, Vidia does joins Tinker Bell's gang after her reformation in the third movie and appears to be Tink's unofficial second in command.
* SmugSnake
* SmugSuper
* SuperSpeed: [[spoiler:In ''Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand'', Vidia wishes to be able to fly as fast as she wants for as long as she wants. Although she has fun at first, she soon realizes there's no longer any challenge in flying and grows bored with flying altogether.]]
* UnknownRival
* VillainExitStageLeft: In the first film, after she is punished by Queen Clarion to gather up the Sprinting Thistles and return them to Needlepoint Meadow, she flies off and is not seen again for the rest of the movie.



[[folder: Frost fairies]]
!!All frost fairies
* AnIcePerson

* GenkiGirl
* LongLostRelative: to Tinker Bell.
* StarCrossedLovers[=/=]TheNotLoveInterest: Periwinkle and Tinker Bell's relationship is even compared to an actual pair of star crossed lovers despite the two being sisters. [[spoiler:Though, the actual starcrossed lovers in ''Secret of the Wings'' were Milori and Queen Clarion.]]

* GenkiGirl: Even moreso than Periwinkle; she seems to be on constant sugar high.
* MotorMouth

* DeadpanSnarker
* LazyBum: As a contrast to Gliss, she usually just kicks back and slacks off when she can.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Fairy]]: Seems to regard herself as this, only to demonstrate almost immediately that she's NotSoAboveItAll.

!!Dewey "The Keeper"
* CoolOldGuy
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He's generally known only as "the Keeper," though he invites people to call him by his real name, Dewey, often enough.
* HorseOfADifferentColor: He rides a gray lynx named Fiona.
* TheSmartGuy

[[folder:Other Fairies]]
* AudienceSurrogate: Fills this role in ''Fairy Dust & The Quest For The Egg''.
* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: In ''Fairy Dust & The Quest For The Egg''. Prilla is the only known fairy who didn't know her talent upon arrival in Never Land.
* GenkiGirl: Highly energetic, one of her CharacterTics is that she'll do cartwheels in the air when she's happy.
* MoralityPet: One of the few fairies Vidia will be genuinely nice to.
* NiceHat
* NiceGirl: One of the sweetest and kindest fairies you can imagine. In ''Fairy Dust & The Quest For The Egg'' Rani at one point speculates if Prilla's talent is "being sweet."
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Prilla's talent is instantly "blinking" to the Mainland. It works almost exactly like Prue's AstralProjection in ''Series/{{Charmed}}''.
* UnreliableIllustrator: David Christiana draws Prilla to look like a child in Gail Carson Levine's books, even though it's explicitly said that she ''wouldn't'' look like a child to a human.

!!Queen Clarion
* DoesNotLikeShoes: At least according to the chapter book story "Barefoot".
* TheHighQueen
** TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask: In ''The Secret of the Wings''. [[spoiler:She was the one who made the rule of the border and feels terrible about it since it keeps her apart from Milori but it was necessary since crossing the border is dangerous.]]
* ProperLady: Just try and find a flaw in her propriety. Well, aside from the bit at the end of ''Secret of the Wings'' (jokingly chided by Fairy Mary).
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Particularly in the books.
* [[spoiler:StarCrossedLovers]]: With Milori. [[spoiler:They got better.]]

!!Lord Milori
* BigDamnHeroes: At the end of ''Secret of the Wings'', Milori comes to save the day with his squadron of owls.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: His pushing the snow machine into the river and the machine getting stuck making endless snow was what caused [[spoiler:a freeze that threatened destroying the Dust Tree.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: One of the heartbreaking things about ''Secret of the Wings'' is that Milori is completely right about it being dangerous for winter and warm fairies to cross the border. [[spoiler:It is later revealed that he was the fairy whose wing was broken when he crossed the border.]]

* BadassAdorable: For such a tiny fairy, she's incredibly tough and totally fearless -- she'll take on great hawks many times her size and win.
* {{Tomboy}}: A rough and tumble powerhouse in a slick scout uniform.
* TheStoic
* NotSoStoic: She, of all people, is one of the fairies who were ''crying'' when Gruff had to sleep for another millennium.
