''HappyTreeFriends'' has a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters rather extensive cast of characters]]. In each episode, one character is given a starring role, while others play supporting roles. Some do not even show up in a given episode. At least one character [[OnceAnEpisode almost always dies in each episode.]]

[[folder:Cuddles]]
-->"Caring and sharing is cause for charming cheers!"
-->Voiced by: Kenn Navarro
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-Cuddles_1_3419.png]]

A cute yellow rabbit who has pink cheeks and is always wearing pink bunny slippers. Cuddles is the main character of the series more so than anyone else, and is one of the four "original" Tree Friends. Despite his cute nature, he has been shown to be a bit of a rebellious Tree Friend who enjoys skateboarding, snowball fights, and daredevil acts. He was the second Tree Friend created (Shifty was the first Tree Friend created), appears in most advertisements, and to date holds the highest death count in the series.

* BlushSticker: Permanent ones, too.
* BuriedAlive: In ''Can't Stop Coffin''. He doesn't stay alive for long, however.
* CreatorCameo: One of the creators voices him.
* HeliumSpeech: In ''From A to Zoo''. Later on, his [[EyeScream eye]] is impaled on the nozzle and his screams become higher and higher in pitch before he finally dies.
* IronicName: His name is "Cuddles" but he's actually a dardevil who's quite fond of risky sports, and being naturally mischievous to boot.
* InterspeciesRomance: He's together with Giggles in most episodes, who's a chipmunk.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Not so much a jerk, but he has been shown to be a bit of a rebellious Tree Friend who enjoys skateboarding, snowball fights, and daredevil acts.
* OfficialCouple: With Giggles.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Inverted - his favorite color is pink.
* RealMenWearPink: Pink bunny slippers, to be exact.
* [[ScrewySquirrel Screwy Bunny]]: In ''From A to Zoo''.
* SeriesMascot: Cuddles is most prominently used to advertise the show. He usually appears solo in promotional art.
* TooDumbToLive: In "Water You Wading For", when he jumps in a waterhole that has a no-swim sign.
** Of course, it's possible that he didn't see the sign. However, he definitely plays it straight in ''From A to Zoo''. Don't poke a baboon (or a rhinoceros).
* TurbineBlender: In ''Spin Fun Knowing Ya'', and again[[note]] depending on if a copy of the episode counts as a second time[[/note]] in ''Blast from the Past''. And while it isn't a literal turbine this time around, he suffers a similar fate in ''Party Animal''.

[[folder:Giggles]]
-->Voiced by: Lori Jee
[[quoteright:175:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfGiggles.png]]

A friendly pink chipmunk who wears a red hair bow. Giggles is one of the four "original" Tree Friends and is most often played as a girly girl, along with Petunia (with whom she is best friends). She also cares strongly for the environment, and will lose her cute nature when she sees someone littering or polluting. Despite being the one most often paired with other Tree Friends for Valentine's Day episodes, she and Cuddles are seen as the "default pairing" of the series.

[[hardline]]
* AssholeVictim: Some Cuddles x Giggles fans see her as this in ''On My Mind''.
* BewareTheNiceOnes / BerserkButton: Anything that damages the environment. In ''Every Litter Bit Hurts'', she ties herself and Sniffles (without his consent) to prevent Lumpy from cutting a tree down. Her reaction to Sniffles dying as a result is to make Lumpy's truck swerve and crash by putting herself in his way.
* TheChick: Portrayed as a girly girl who is sometimes the DistressedDamsel.
* DamselInDistress: Often spoofs this, particularly in ''Better Off Bread'' and ''See You Later, Elevator''.
* GranolaGirl: In ''Every Litter Bit Hurts''.
* InterspeciesRomance: She's together with Cuddles in most episodes, who's a rabbit.
** She has gone out with half of the male cast, which include Mole (who's a [[ADogNamedDog mole]]), Captain Russell (a sea otter), Cro-Marmot (a [[HumanPopsicle frozen]] [[ADogNamedDog marmot]]) and Flippy (a bear). She once swooned over Lumpy, who's a moose.
* OfficialCouple: With Cuddles, although she is the character most often paired up with others.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: She has long eyelashes, [[PinkGirlBlueBoy pink fur]], and wears a [[HairDecorations bow on her head]].
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly girl to Flaky's tomboy.
* TorsoWithAView: ''Every Litter Bit Hurts.''
* TurbineBlender: In ''Winging' It''.
* YouFailBiologyForever: She's a tailless chipmunk.

[[folder:Toothy]]
-->"Using a toothbrush is tantamount for twinkling teeth."
-->Voiced by: Warren Graff
[[quoteright:246:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Toothy_2938.png]]

An unlucky purple beaver named for his [[MeaningfulName large, gapped buckteeth]]. Toothy is one of the four "original" Tree Friends and is most often played as the everyman. The creators of the show feel he doesn't have enough of a personality, and plan to bring him out of his shell in later episodes. His trademark injuries have to do with his eyes, mostly as shout outs to his most famous episode, ''Eye Candy''.

* TheEveryman: Most often portrayed as one.
* EverythingsWorseWithBees: So far, he's been attacked by bees a total of three times, twice of which resulted in a bee sting to the eye.
* EyeScream: His [[UnluckyEverydude trademark]] injury/death since ''Eye Candy''.

[[folder:Lumpy]]
-->"For a lazy lunch, try leftover loaf!"
-->Voiced by: David Winn
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lumpy_1812.jpg]]

An idiotic blue moose whose lack of intelligence often lands himself and others into trouble while driving the plot for many episodes. Lumpy is one of the four "original" Tree Friends and to date has the official highest kill count and starring count in the series. Despite his stupidity, he often holds high ranking jobs (such as a doctor), and is sometimes placed with the care of the smaller Tree Friends. He shows signs of greed as well, as visited in several episodes.

[[hardline]]
* AssholeVictim: When portrayed as a villain.
* BigBrotherInstinct: When the smaller Tree Friends are in his care, he'll go to great lengths to try and protect them - even if he usually winds up killing them or himself in the process.
* TheBigGuy: He is the tallest of the Tree Friends.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: In ''Doggone It!'', he took on a giant squid with a ''mousetrap''! And ''won''!
** And ''Wipe Out'' reveals he's a pro surfer, even managing to juggle chainsaws while hanging ten!
** He climbs a rope with a freshly paralyzed back in ''Take a Hike'', and the rescue he (almost) pulls off at the end of ''The Wrong Side of the Tracks'' also counts.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Along with Sniffles, he suffers some of the worst deaths.
* DirtyCoward: In ''Wingin' It'', Lumpy uses many electronic devices in a passenger jet in flight, disrupting its navigational systems. When the plane starts to malfunction, Lumpy kicks out the plane's door, sucking several characters to their inevitable deaths, and takes ''all'' of the parachutes to himself, forgetting to properly put on even one.
* DisproportionateRetribution: He, along with Flippy, Handy, and Sniffles, kills Flaky, just because she popped the raft with her quills.
* TheDitz: Lumpy's stupidity is the driving force behind the plots of many episodes.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[RockyAndBullwinkle Bullwinkle]], to the point that the creators had to invert the direction of his antlers to keep him from looking ''too'' much like Bullwinkle.
** And he sounds a little like {{WesternAnimation/Goofy}} if you think about it...
* JackassGenie: Unintentionally in ''As You Wish.''
* {{Jerkass}}: In some of his roles, such as in ''We're Scrooged!'' and ''Dunce Upon A Time''.
* KarmicDeath: A large portion of Lumpy's deaths relate to him doing something thoughtless, usually while on the job.
** In ''Concrete Solution'', Lumpy hides the fact he accidentally killed Handy by hiding him in the cement they were pouring. Later he's crushed by the block of cement with Handy's corpse pressed in it.
* LethalKlutz: His stupidity has caused so many deaths that he has an official kill count higher than that of even ''Evil Flippy/Fliqpy.'' In fact, he hold the highest official kill count in the series...mostly due to his stupidity.
* LethallyStupid: TropeCodifier. His stupidity caused sooooooo many deaths. The creators said the reason Lumpy has so many different jobs is because his incompetence causes havok wherever he goes, and gives different situations.
* LifeOrLimbDecision: In ''Out On A Limb''.
* LiteralGenie: In ''As You Wish'', where he plays a genie in a (table) lamp. His wishes cause grave injuries or death to the other characters.
* MadeOfIron: Despite being the most unintelligent Tree Friend in the cast, he is the one who survives the most - a more common occurrence is [[LethallyStupid "Too Dumb For Those Around Him To Live"]]. It seems to have a reason - he is the tallest and probably strongest of the cast excluding Splendid, so the times he doesn't die immediately, he often gets injured. In the TV season, he has survived falling off a highway overpass onto the road below and then getting run over by Lifty and Shifty's van (''Concrete Solution'') and getting hit head-on by a truck and getting entangled in a bicycle (''A Change of Heart'').
* MooseAreIdiots: Probably the most glaring example.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Not only does Lumpy tower over the other Tree Friends, he also lacks the round faces that every other character has. He looks the most like the animal he is, compared to the other Tree Friends. He is also one of the few characters (along with Sniffles) who does not have a heart nose.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: He plays the [[VillainProtagonist villain]] in ''We're Scrooged!'', killing Toothy in order to sell his body parts for profit. In the TV episode ''Dunce Upon a Time'', which is a WholePlotReference to ''Literature/JackAndTheBeanstalk'', Lumpy takes on the role of the lumbering giant of the castle in the sky, killing the other characters to make his meal and when they try to escape.
** There are times when Lumpy has [[SmartBall bursts of intelligence]], which goes against his usual TheDitz portrayals.
*** In ''Doggone It'', he was the only one to realize the reason for [[KillerRabbit Whistle's]] attacks.
*** In ''A Sight for Sore Eyes'', he realized the danger The Mole's blindness poses to everyone and gave him a guide dog to replace his cane.
*** In ''We're Scrooged!'', he quickly managed to make a paddle with his own eye to prevent Sniffles from leaving the shop.
*** So far he is the only one to be aware of the causes of Flippy's PTSD, since in ''Without a Hitch'' and ''Random Acts of Silence'', several characters who appear to be aware of Flippy's PTSD tought that he would flip out randomly, while in ''Double Whammy Part 1'' he figured out the cause of his problem and attemped to cure it.
*** He managed to finish the bridge in ''Concrete Solution'' despite his coworkers being dead.
*** In ''A Change of Heart'', he managed to save Disco Bear's life by giving him a heart transplant...with an ''orca's heart''.
* PrecisionFStrike: He has a tendency to say "What the hell?" when something goes wrong, except for in ''Doggone It'', where it's this.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Lumpy speaks with a deep voice, but in his death throes and instances of torture, he has a high-pitched scream.
* SmartBall: How Lumpy defeats evil Flippy and the zombies in "Remains To Be Seen".
* TooDumbToLive: Inverted most of the time (an exception being the episode ''The Chokes On You'').
* VillainBall: "Dunce Upon a Time".
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: He's held the highest number of jobs to date, ranging from optometrist to plumber.
** The writers give him and The Mole the most jobs just because [[DiabolusExMachina they need something bad to happen.]]

[[folder:Flaky]]
-->Voiced by: Nica Lorber
[[quoteright:213:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Flaky_3942.png]]

A nervous, cowardly red porcupine whose quills are [[MeaningfulName full of dandruff]]. Flaky is the subject of a long-standing gender dispute, though most of the creators and fans refer to her as a female. Her official gender description on the website is a question mark. She is very cautious, scared of nearly everything, and is prone to motion sickness. Despite this, she can be very brave if the situation calls for it.

On April 28, 2012, on the twitter for Happy Tree Friends, in reply to someone's tweet, it was an actual disscusion about Flaky's gender and they intentionally stated Flaky was a girl, confirming Flaky's gender.


[[hardline]]
* AmbiguousGender: WordOfGod (usually) says girl. WordOfGod also likes trolling the fanbase, as seen in ''Something Fishy.'', when she couldn't decide whether to go into the men's or women's restroom ([[spoiler:in the end, she went into the women's restroom, which proved disastrous, because the plumbing was infested by Russel's deadly Piranha fish.]]).
** Basically a [[GenderBender gender]]-[[RuleSixtyThree bent]] version of [[LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts Hideyoshi]].
* {{Badass}}: She proves that she can be this through the fact that she's the only one who realizes Flippy is crazy and tries to put an end to his lunacy, when she stabs him in ''Without A Hitch''.
* CowardlyLion: When she isn't simply cowardly.
* [[ThreateningShark Everything's Even Worse With Sharks]]: She's been attacked by sharks three times over the course of the series: In ''Wipe Out'', ''Happy Trails Pt. 2'', and ''Wingin' It''.
* {{Flanderization}}: Flaky starts off somewhat cautious in season 1. She only got scared of things that were truly dangerous. By season 2, she starts to develop fears that were somewhat irrational (i.e. skating, flying, and skiing). By the end of season 2, she's pretty much scared of anything that's nearby her (i.e. chicks). It's starts to tone down in the TV series, when she was seen brave enough to throw a birthday party for Flippy and bring a baby bird back to its nest. However, by season 3, she's pretty much scared over anything (i.e. going in the wrong bathroom).
* GenreSavvy: Flaky showing concern for danger makes her this by default.
* LovableCoward: She is understandably always scared of everything, but her whimpering, stuttering and crying is the cutest thing you'll ever see on the show. Not to mention the moments [[WhenSheSmiles she is actually happy.]]
* OnlySaneMan: When living in a world where you can die by falling down the stairs, getting hit by a coconut in the head or being split in half by a stump she has [[ProperlyParanoid every damn right to be freaked out of her mind.]]
* OutOfCharacterMoment: In "Lesser Of Two Evils". Let's see... she throws a party, when she usually never takes the initiative to do anything. She almost never looks scared in the episode, except for a few moments. Guess who the party is for? FLIPPY. Yes, Flippy. The character she's deadly scared of. [[IdiotBall Usually she knows better than do such a thing.]]
* ProperlyParanoid: Considering [[EverythingTryingToKillYou what usually ends up happening]] after attempts at even the safest actions, Flaky's fears seem [[LovableCoward considerably less unreasonable]].
* SanitySlippage: "Without A Hitch".
* ShipTease: Taking the show's standards into account, she is this with Flippy, particluarly ''Lesser of Two Evils'' on both parts, ''Without A Hitch'' on Flippy's part and ''Random Acts Of Silence'' on Flippy's part, again.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Averted - Possibly what leads to the high amount of ViewerGenderConfusion.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The tomboy to either Giggles'/Petunia's/Lammy's girly girl.
* TooDumbToLive: In rare occasions, seeing how she is the OnlySaneMan of the show. However, she did play this straight in ''Happy Trails Part 2: Jumping the Shark'', when she sat on an inflatable raft that Lifty and Shift inflated. Because her quills touched the raft, it sank and ended up leading to Lifty's, Shifty's, and her own deaths.
** Also happens in ''Wingin' It'', when she finally lands the abandoned plane. She attempts to slide down the emergency inflatable slide, only for it to pop, due to her quills
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Flaky has an odd fear of baby chicks, more so than everything else. Guess what she encounters in the petting zoo in ''A To Zoo''. Weirdly enough, it seems to be just chicks. She doesn't appear to be particularly afraid of any other birds.

[[folder:Sniffles]]
-->"Science is seriously satisfying!"
-->Voiced by: Liz Stewart
[[quoteright:186:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sniffles_4024.png]]

A nerdy blue anteater with glasses and a pocket protector. Often seen as the brains of the show, Sniffles is a [[HollywoodGeek geek]] who loves science, inventing, Franchise/StarTrek, and superheroes (Splendid especially). He sometimes delves into mad scientist territory on a few occasions, however. There are several episodes dedicated to him and a family of ants who he always tries to eat, though the ants always end up killing him in the end.

[[hardline]]
* {{Adorkable}}: NerdGlasses and pen protector? Check. Geeky and smart? Check. Some of the most painful, sadistic deaths in the series? ''[[TheWoobie Check]]''.
* BadAssBookWorm: As seen in ''Idol Curiousity''
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Happens to him a lot, even by Happy Tree Friends standards.
** His most famous death is in the episode, ''Tongue In Cheek'', where the ants install a mind control device on Sniffles and force him to eat a razor-bladed apple, stick his tongue in a shredder, nail his tail to the ground, and have his organs ripped out of his mouth [[AndIMustScream while being aware the whole time]].
* DisproportionateRetribution: He, along with Flippy, Handy, and Lumpy, kills Flaky, just because she accidentally popped the raft with her quills.
* {{Flanderization}}: From a normal smart guy to a tactical genius who can create just about anything.
* GadgeteerGenius: He was able to build a functioning rocket ship out of the remains of a school bus and a TimeMachine out of a washer, for starters.
* InsufferableGenius : It has been hinted several times that he might take his smarts a bit too far. One notable example could be "''I've Got You Under My Skin''", where he travels inside Giggles (via shrinking sub) to get rid of germs, as opposed to medicine.
** Another is "''A Hole Lotta Love''", where he builds a drill machine just to rescue Cub from the bottom of a well.
** The best example is probably "''Blast from the Past''", where he goes through all the trouble of making a time machine JUST to stop himself from dropping a glass of milk.
* MadScientist: Sometimes.
* MisappliedPhlebotinum: He manages to build a mind control helmet and a tiny, fully-functioning robot... [[SuperPersistentPredator only to try and capture ants to eat]]. And the TimeMachine? Built just so he could go back to ''keep his milk from getting spilled''. (Though, the latter was put to better intentions. [[DiabolusExMachina Almost]].)
* NerdGlasses: Complete with tape to hold the lenses together.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Like Lumpy, he does not have a heart-shaped nose.
* RazorApples: He's forced to eat one in ''Tongue In Cheek''.
* TheSmartGuy: Usually builds intricate gadgets that drive the plot of some episodes.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Ants, even though he's only been able to successfully eat one during the course of the series. [[SuperPersistentPredator He usually goes to great lengths just to capture one]].

-->"Plant plenty of pretty, perfumed, purple and pink flowers!"
-->Voiced by: Lori Jee
[[quoteright:175:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfPetunia.png]]

A sweet blue skunk who wears a flower on her head and a pine tree car freshener around her neck. Petunia suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and is quite a neat freak. She is best friends with Giggles and they like to hang around with each other, have tea parties, play with dolls, etc. She tends to die the messier deaths in the series, such as having her face pressed to a grill or getting pulled through a sink. For a long time, she is the only character to have not killed another Tree Friend (though she did kill herself in one episode) until "Breaking Wind" where her lighting a match inside Splendid's toxic gas caused the planet to explode.

[[hardline]]
* DistressedDamsel: Less than Giggles, but still falls into this on occasion.
* DrivenToSuicide: In ''Wishy Washy'', with a '''''potato peeler'''''. [[{{Squick}} Eeep.]] Although technically she was trying to [[SanitySlippage peel the disgusting slime off her body at the time]]...
** This is also the only time in the entire series someone committed suicide intentionally.
* HairDecorations: Wears a pink [[MeaningfulName petunia]] on her head.
* InterspeciesRomance: At first with Mime, who's a reindeer, but then with Handy, who's a beaver.
* NeatFreak: She freaks out and hyperventilates whenever her house or her own body gets soiled.
* PaletteSwap: Of Giggles, with the exception of her tail and some of the patterns.
* PottyEmergency: in ''Happy Trails'' as well as ''Wingin' It''; she seems to like her soda and juice-boxes.
* OfficialCouple: With Mime first, then Handy as her most prominent.
* SmellySkunk: Subtly defied - It has never been hinted that Petunia smells bad, but her five showers a day, the flower on her head and the air-freshener necklace ''may'' have something to do with that.
* SuperOCD: ''Wishy Washy'' gratuitously showed us how bad it is with some serious panic attacks.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: She has long eyelashes and a flower on her head.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly girl to Flaky's tomboy.
* TooDumbToLive: In ''Breaking Wind'', she lights a match when the atmosphere is intoxicated and causes the entire planet's surface to explode.

[[folder:Nutty]]
-->Voiced by: Michael "Lippy" Lipman
[[quoteright:175:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfNutty.png]]

A hyperactive green squirrel who always has several pieces of candy stuck in his fur. Nutty is absolutely addicted to candy or anything sugary, and will sometimes add pounds of sugar to something just to make it sweet enough for him. His constantly-dilated eyes are mismatched with one lazy eye (a side effect from his high sugar consumption), and his vocabulary consists almost entirely of laughing and giggling. His sugar addiction has gotten him in trouble more than a few times.

[[hardline]]
* AxCrazy: Not to Flippy's level, but he still has his moments. Do ''not'' come between him and his candy.
* BracesOfOrthodonticOverkill: In ''Chew Said a Mouthful,'' he gets them to hold his jaw together after breaking it on a gobstopper.
* CompanionCube: ''A Sucker For Love'' was [[FallingInLoveMontage almost entirely dedicated]] to his fantasies of various candies... as girlfriends and [[WhyDontYouMarryIt wives]]. Also doubles as a CargoShip.
* {{Determinator}}: Even when he's dying, he'll always try to get loads of candy.
* TheDitz: As a result of his candy addiction, he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer. See TooStupidToLive below.
* DissonantLaughter: He sometimes laughs while he dies.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: His name says it all -- he's as nutty as a squirrel's breakfast.
* ExtremeOmnivore: He'll eat anything that ''vaguely'' resembles candy, from Christmas lights to cement mix and even other characters in costume.
* {{Flanderization}}: From just a sugar addict to pretty much falling in love with candy.
* GRatedDrug: Consuming anything sugary, [[ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin sometimes in tiny amounts]], will send Nutty bouncing off the walls. Prolonged periods without sugar will send Nutty into withdrawal symptoms, becoming irritable and mentally imbalanced.
* {{Jerkass}}: He will prioritize his insatiable sugar addiction over the lives of others and even of himself.
* LaughingMad: Always. ''Always''. Even when in pain, suffering, or ''dying'' he will intersperse giggling with groaning and screaming.
* NuttySquirrel: In spades. His manic nature is due to his high sugar consumption. Also doubles as a MeaningfulName.
* SweetTooth: A whole mouthful.
* TooDumbToLive: Many of his deaths could have been avoided if he would learn to prioritize his own well-being over a handful of candy.
** In ''Chew Said a Mouthful'' he bites on a jawbreaker and ends up breaking his jaw three times.
** In ''A Sucker for Love'', he scoops up some glass shards and gum balls from a broken gumball machine and shovels them all into his mouth. When he blows a bubble, it pops and the glass shards impale his face.
** In ''As You Wish'', he wishes for a lollipop, tries swallowing the entire thing whole, and promptly chokes to death.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: No, really?
* VillainProtagonist: In ''A Sucker for Love'', he tries to steal a lollipop from Cub.

[[folder:Handy]]
-->"A happy home has all the right hardware for any happenstance!"
-->Voiced by: Warren Graff
[[quoteright:175:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfHandy.png]]

A helpful orange beaver with [[UnfortunateNames amputated hands]], who is always seen wearing a hard hat, a tool belt, and arm-nub bandages. Despite his handicap, Handy is most often seen doing (or at least attempting) activities that require hands. Ironically, his dam is full of things that are handheld. Whenever he fails at a task or remembers he doesn't have hands, he will pull his trademark look of a frustrated glance into the camera.

[[hardline]]
* AsideGlance: Once he realizes he does not have hands or tries to do something that requires hands, he will glare into the camera.
* BehindTheBlack: Whenever he successfully does something that requires hands, it's almost always done off-camera.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Whenever he gets frustrated over his lack of hands, he turns to the camera and snarls.
* ButtMonkey: A recurring joke is that his lack of hands prevent him from doing certain things, followed by his signature growl of frustration when realizing that said things need hands to be done.
* DisproportionateRetribution: He, along with Flippy, Lumpy, and Sniffles, kills Flaky, just because she popped the raft with her quills.
* GrievousBottleyHarm: In ''Spare Me'', he's hit in the back of the head while drinking soda from a bottle, which causes it to get stuck in his eyesocket while his [[EyeScream eye]] rattles around inside the bottle.
* HandicappedBadass: Why yes, he did build an entire house by himself. Twice.
* [[ArmlessBiped Handless Biped]]
* HelicopterBlender: In ''Who's to Flame?'', after pushing an unexplained eject button on his helicopter.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Petunia, who's a skunk.
* MrFixIt: He is portrayed as a construction worker...without hands. Yet he manages to perform tasks that require them, including building an entire house. [[BehindTheBlack We just do not see him actually do it.]]
* NiceHat: Wears a hard hat. It has protected him from serious injury and death on a few occasions.
* NonindicativeName: His name is Handy, but he has no hands.
* OfficialCouple: With Petunia.
* SilentSnarker: Would easily be the most fit to say something sarcastic if he could.

[[folder:Flippy and Fliqpy]]
-->"Fire fried food is a feast for a famished soldier."
-->Voiced by: Kenn Navarro (Flippy), Aubrey Ankrum (Fliqpy)
[[quoteright:275:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfFlippys.JPG]]

A war-torn green bear who wears a military jacket, beret, and dog tags. His rank is apparently sergeant (by USA stripes; other countries have other rank insignia).

Flippy suffers from severe post-traumatic stress disorder due to the time he spent in the W.A.R (Weaponized Animal Regiment). While his "good" side tends to be one of the kinder and more sociable of the Tree Friends, his 'evil' side "fliqpy" will emerge whenever he sees or hears something that reminds him of war or death. Once in his evil state (usually dubbed "Fliqpy"), he turns into a highly efficient killing machine, slaughtering everyone around him. He is arguably the most popular character of the series among fans. He stars in ''[[SpinOff Ka-pow!]]'' alongside Splendid and Buddhist Monkey.

[[hardline]]
* AlasPoorVillain: When Flippy does die, a lot of fans seem to not be happy about that.
* AntiHero: In ''Operation: Tiger Bomb''.
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type II]]
* ArtEvolution: Originally his flipped out state was drawn with crooked teeth. In later episodes he has fangs.
* AxCrazy: His flipped-out state.
* {{Badass}}: Both parts of him are this.
** BadassAdorable: Flippy can still [[BewareTheNiceOnes put up a pretty tough fight even when he isn't flipped]], as we see in ''Double Whammy''.
* '''BearsAreBadNews:''' Flippy actually plays with this trope, being one of the nicest characters in his normal state. However, when he ''does'' [[EnemyWithin flip out]], you'll understand why this trope is in '''bold'''.
* BerserkButton: If Flippy encounters anything that reminds him of war: '''[[ScaryMovie RUN, BITCH, RUN!!!]]'''.
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: In "Double Whammy" an army of evil Flippys and a army of good Flippys are much less resistant than the originals.
* CreatorCameo: Both of the voice actors (good and evil) are creators of the show.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: GreenEyes, green fur.
* DisproportionateRetribution: He, along with Lumpy, Handy, and Sniffles, kills Flaky [[spoiler:(despite not flipping out)]], just for accidentally popping the raft with her quills.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Fliqpy has a different, much deeper voice actor to Flippy.
* {{Expy}}: Of {{Rambo}}. In his first appearance, his kills mirror that of Rambo.
* FangsAreEvil[=/=]SlasherSmile: [[CuteAndPsycho Fliqpy]], [[NightmareFace always.]]
* HairTriggerTemper: Anything that reminds Flippy of war will trigger his evil side.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Wears no pants.
* HelicopterBlender: In ''Hear Today Gone Tomorrow''.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Fliqpy has a knack for transforming nearby objects into lethal weapons, such as a movie projector, a propeller blade, a rose, a straw, [[SerialEscalation and even a Christmas cookie.]]
* JekyllAndHyde: Flippy and Fliqpy are complete polar opposites of each other, yet Flippy is the only character who can hold his own in a fight with Fliqpy.
* KarmaHoudini: While Flippy often dies, the same can't be said for Fliqpy.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:In ''Remains to be Seen'', Fliqpy first gets killed when he rams his truck to a tree, killing himself and everyone near him. Then he becomes a zombie and dies again when he gets his brain stuck to a leaf blower and a zombified Toothy bites his brain, causing it to explode.]]
** [[spoiler:Also happens in ''By the Seat of Your Pants'', when he attacks Lumpy, only for him to bounce off of Lumpy's shortened skin (used as a swim trunk) and be impaled by a flagpole (which he survives), where he then attempts to climb out of it, only to be [[RasputinianDeath roped down by Lumpy, disemboweling and killing him]]. Thus, Lumpy is now considered the third character to intentionally kill Flippy (the first be the zombified Toothy, and, indirectly, Flaky, though the latter killed him while he was not flipped out).]]
* KnifeNut: A bowie knife is his iconic killing tool; not that he needs it.
* MoodSwinger: While this is not his disorder, and merely triggered by his BerserkButton, he can go from heartwarmingly friendly one minute to a cold-blodded killer the next.
* NiceGuy: As Flippy.
* PetTheDog: His episodes contain some moments of this for Flaky. In episodes such as ''Party Animal'', ''Without A Hitch'' and ''Random Acts of Silence'', he doesn't purposely kill her despite killing everyone else around him. This is often seen as either an RelationshipWritingFumble or FanService from the creators for the most popular FanPreferredCouple.
* RasputinianDeath: See KarmicDeath.
* RealMenWearPink: Besides collecting weapons in his bunker-house, he likes flowers, tea parties, [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins pink penguins]] and unicorns.
* RecurringRiff: Typically, when Flippy is triggered enough to start killing, his transformation is triggered by a quite literal RecurringRiff: a low, descending guitar tone and background sounds of warfare.
* ScaryLibrarian: In ''Random Acts of Silence'' when he flips out.
* ShellShockedVeteran: His post-traumatic stress disorder had manifested itself into both schizophrenia (having hallucinations of his evil self and of many versions of himself and his evil self going into battle) and SplitPersonality (he becomes an entirely different person when something reminds him of war and he doesn't remember the things he's done as his other self either).
* ShipTease: Taking the show's standards into account, he is this with Flaky, particluarly "Lesser of Two Evils" on both parts and "Without A Hitch" on Flippy's part. In his flipped out state in "Lesser of Two Evils", "Random Acts of Silence" and "Double Whammy" Flaky is the only character he doesn't kill. In fact, she snapped him out of his flipped out state once with her screams.
* SplitPersonality
* SuperStrength: He once stopped the blades of a biplane with ''his bare hands'' during a flip-out.
* VillainProtagonist: Though not intentionally, once Flippy flips out, he kills other characters without remorse or mercy.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: PTSD is a devastating mental illness, and it's very easy to feel sorry for Flippy, even though he has the second-highest kill count in the series.
* [[RedEyesTakeWarning Yellowish-Green Eyes, Take Warning]]: Fliqpy

[[folder:Mime]]
-->Voiced by: Sarah Castelblanco
[[quoteright:175:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfMime2.png]]

A quiet purple deer (he is actually capable of speech like the others, just choosing rather to be silent) who is ([[MeaningfulName as his name suggests]]) a mime, complete with face-paint and a striped shirt. Mime is very talented at various circus and carnival acts, such as pantomiming, juggling, making balloon animals, fire breathing, and riding unicycles. His reluctance to speak often lands himself and others into trouble, and he will sometimes choose showmanship over actual helpfulness.

[[hardline]]
* BlushSticker: As part of his mime getup.
* TheCasanova: In ''Easy Comb, Easy Go''.
* EveryoneHatesMimes: Inverted InUniverse. Most characters seem to like him and his tricks.
** But why else would a mime be in a show relying on pain and death?
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Wears no pants.
* NonverbalMiscommunication: He does not speak, but there have been several instances where he tries to make a phone call...and miming over the line.
* OfficialCouple: With Petunia at first, before she started dating Handy.
* PoorCommunicationKills: See TheVoiceless below.
* ThrowTheDogABone: [[spoiler: In the TV series, when a character has a "starring" role in an episode, expect them to be dead by the end. Mime survives both of his, even if the episodes themselves have [[DownerEnding downer endings]].]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Peanuts, for some reason.
* TheVoiceless: In several episodes he makes brief vocal sounds, such as snoring, gagging, or gurgling. He most likely chooses not to speak or scream out of showmanship.
** [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] as this has led to the death of many others in ''Who's to Flame?'' when he chose not to talk to Lumpy on the phone.

[[folder:The Mole]]
-->"Myopic, meandering marches most often lead to macabre mishaps."
-->Voiced by: Dean [=MacDonald=]
[[quoteright:175:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfTheMole.png]]

A blind lavender mole who wears sunglasses and a dark turtle neck sweater, with a mole on his face. His blindness drives the plot for many episodes, since the creators feel that he and Lumpy are the most inept Tree Friends for any given job. Paired with his blindness is also the inability to speak, possibly because of his sweater. His deaths are limited to the TV series because a producer for the internet seasons has a blind daughter. A lone ''[[SpinOff Ka-pow!]]'' episode, ''Mole in the Big City'', visits the idea that The Mole is an international spy, an actual character trait [[WhatCouldHaveBeen that was cut]] before he was introduced into the series.

[[hardline]]
* ADogNamedDog
* BehindTheBlack: Whenever he eats.
* TheFaceless: His turtleneck sweater [[NoMouth covers his mouth all the time]].
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: No pants.
* HandicappedBadass: As seen in ''Mole in the Big City''.
* IAteWhat?: He's the most frequent character to mistake body parts for food/produce, due to his blindness. He never seems to notice this.
* TheSpeechless: He does not say a word.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: The only character to have the word "the" as part of his name.
* SunglassesAtNight: Possibly justified by the fact that he's ''blind.''
* TooDumbToLive: Like Lumpy, a more common occurrence being [[InvertedTrope "Too Dumb For Those Around Him To Live"]](exceptions being ''Who's to Flame?'' and ''A Sight For Sore Eyes'').

[[folder:Pop]]
-->"Parental parents are patient and proud."
-->Voiced by: Aubrey Ankrum
[[quoteright:175:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfPop.png]]

A bumbling tan bear who is almost always seen with a pipe and wears a red hat and robe. Pop is a [[StandardFiftiesFather single father to his son]], Cub, whom he tends to accidentally kill on a regular basis due to his oblivious and slightly dim nature. Despite this, he is actually very caring towards his son and will go out of his way to save him in the few times he knows Cub is hurt or lost. What happened to his wife/Cub's mother is never explained, though it is hinted at that she may have died prior to the series.

[[hardline]]
* BumblingDad: His [[ParentalObliviousness obliviousness to his son's safety]] often leads to the latter's often gruesome death.
* TheDeterminator: The few times he ever is aware that Cub is in danger he'll never stop in trying to save his son, up to and including going over a waterfall in ''And the Kitchen Sink'' and successfully fending off a rabid dog in ''Doggone it!''
** PapaWolf: When this does happen, watch out.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Only wears a robe.
* NiceHat: Wears a red hat.

[[folder:Cub]]
-->"Cute kids are cuddly and carefree!"
-->Voiced by: Lori Jee
[[quoteright:175:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfCub.png]]

An adorable tan baby bear, who is always wearing a propeller beanie hat and a diaper/nappy. Cub is Pop's son, and often his deaths are due to his father's oblivious nature. He tends to act stereotypically baby-like (babbling, drooling, etc.), though he has the mobility of a toddler. Because of his babyish nature and innocence, he doesn't usually notice if someone has died or is in pain, and has even played with severed body parts on occasion.

[[hardline]]
* BabyTalk: Being a baby, this is how Cub talks.
* DemonicPossession: In ''Read 'Em And Weep'', by an EldritchAbomination.
* DeadBabyComedy: ''All'' of his deaths.
* DisneyDeath: In ''And the Kitchen Sink'' when Pop sees Cub seemingly decapitated after falling off a waterfall. When he grabs his head, he finds that he was just buried in the sand up to the neck. A second later, Cub confirms that he's alive when he coughs.
* InfantImmortality: Gruesomely averted on a regular basis.
* MadeOfIron: In ''And the Kitchen Sink'', Cub survived being scalded by extremely hot water, having his entire lower half of his body disintegrated in a sink garbage disposal, being pulled by the neck with a rope tied to a station wagon whose accelerator Pop floored (in an attempt to free Cub from the sink drain), being dragged by said station wagon while still stuck in the sink, and falling off a waterfall. These injuries and situations usually kill or dismember the older Tree Friends. He only died by drowning in the bathtub when Pop was looking away.
* MissingMom: His mother's absence is never explained.
** Possibly explained in ''Can't Stop Coffin'', where he and Pop are standing over someone's grave; the name is unseen to the audience.

[[folder:Lifty and Shifty]]

-->Both voiced by: Kenn Navarro
[[quoteright:275:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfLifty_Shifty.png]]

Two kleptomaniac green raccoon twin brothers, the older of which (Shifty) is always wearing a green fedora. Lifty and Shifty often scam or steal from unsuspecting Tree Friends (mostly [[TooDumbToLive Lumpy]]) in an effort to get rich. They are played as sinister characters with narrow eyes, dark mask-like markings around their eyes, wide grins, and trademark evil snickers. Often times they work together to steal or scam, though they will sometimes fight, kill one another, or abandon the other to die in favor of riches or goods.

[[hardline]]
* [[AlasPoorVillain Alas, Poor Villains]]: See PetTheDog.
* [[AssholeVictim Asshole Victims]]
* CantGetAwaywithNuthin: They have died in EVERY episode of the internet series so far.

** Lifty fell into this in a comic strip called "Bank on it!".
* KarmicDeath: Most of their deaths are a result of their thievery. For instance, in ''Don't Yank My Chain'', they steal a car at a gas station. At the end of the episode, they get run over by a train when the car runs out of fuel right on the track. As a bonus, the original owner(s?) of the car are being dragged along the train when this happens.
* LaserGuidedKarma: "Laser-guided" is a bit of an {{understatement}}...
* NiceHat: Shifty wears a fedora to differentiate the two.
* PetTheDog / OutOfCharacterMoment: In ''Happy Trails Part 2: Jumping the Shark'', when they try to save everyone by using an inflatable raft to bring everyone back to civilization. Too bad that didn't work quite as they planned.

* SiblingRivalry: They're sometimes seen fighting over who gets to rightfully keep things they have stolen.
* SiblingTeam: For kleptomania, no less.

* TooDumbToLive: Their thievery usually goes against common sense, and usually gets themselves killed.
* {{Villain Protagonist}}s: Usually, the episodes they appear in centre around them.

[[folder:Russell]]
-->"Row, row, row your boat down a running river!"
-->Voiced by: Francis Carr
[[quoteright:175:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HtfRussell.png]]

A turquoise pirate sea otter with a Jolly Roger hat, eye-patch, ripped striped shirt, black pants, two peg legs, and a hook hand. Russell dresses and talks like a pirate, with his vocabulary consisting almost entirely of "Yar!" He enjoys the sea and nautical activities, such as fishing, sailing, or hunting for treasure, and he even lives in a house boat (perched in a tree). His early design had him with [[PermaStubble five-o-clock shadow]], but this has been retired since his second appearance onward.

A groovy golden bear with an orange afro, yellow leisure suit, yellow bell-bottoms, and platform shoes. Disco Bear is stuck in the 1970's and lives the disco way of life, from his clothing to his dance moves to the music that plays on his alarm clock. He likes to roller blade, ski, and (unsuccessfully) hit on Giggles and Petunia, but most of all he loves to disco dance. However, he also loves deep fried/fatty foods, has a noticeable gut, and lives an unhealthy lifestyle. He takes great pride in his afro and goes to extremes to make sure it's perfect. It took until the TV series for the creators to stop finding him annoying and actually start liking him.

[[hardline]]
* CasanovaWannabe: Continuously flirts with the female characters throughout the series. The only female he has not flirted with is Lammy.
* CatchPhrase: "Oh yeah."

A heroic blue flying squirrel who is always seen with a red mask. Splendid is a superhero with super strength/speed, heat vision, the ability to fly, and more. Despite his helpful nature, he always seems to hurt more than he helps. When not saving the world, he's quite the homemaker who enjoys baking and sewing. He is a comic book legend in-universe, and is an idol to Sniffles and Toothy in particular. His only weakness is a [[GreenRock green acorn-shaped rock]] called Kryptonut, which caused his only confirmed death throughout the whole series. He has an evil twin/evil counterpart, Splendont, who ironically is much better at being a superhero. Splendid stars in ''[[SpinOff Ka-pow!]]'' alongside Flippy and Buddhist Monkey.

[[quoteright:175:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/htfcromarmot.png]]

A prehistoric yellow marmot who wears a leopard-skin loincloth and carries a club. Cro-Marmot is always seen encased entirely in a large block of ice (except for the irregular episode Dino-Sore Days). Despite this, he will often be seen doing activities (almost always off-camera), and is apparently known for his impressive talents, all unseen by the viewer.

However, when attacked by Generic Tree Ninjas and others sent from a [[EvilOverlord mysterious, dark overlord]], he sheds his passive outer nature and call upon his extensive martial arts training to kill his enemies. A flashback focused on his training by [[OldMaster Sensei Orangutan]], who had died sometime between the flashback and the series.

A wooly violet lamb who wears a purple hairbow and a white wool sweater, and a pickle dressed in a top hat and mustache. Winners of the ''Vote or Die'' 10th anniversary new character contest held by the Happy Tree Friends website in early 2010, Lammy and Mr. Pickels are the newest additions to the HTF cast. While Lammy appears to be a relatively normal girl, her (seemingly imaginary) friend Mr. Pickels gleefully causes mischief with others, even killing them. As a disturbing twist, when Lammy tries to stop Mr. Pickels from harming others, it's Lammy unintentionally causing pain and grief.

[[hardline]]

* NiceHat: For a pickle, anyway.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Lammy's attempts to stop Mr. Pickels end in death and disaster.

* PokemonSpeak: Lammy speaks with a sheep's bleat. It's most pronounced when she's laughing or panicking.
