!!Peter Pan and the Lost Boys

[[folder:Peter Pan]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Bobby Driscoll (1953 film), Creator/CoreyBurton (Back to Never Land), Blayne Weaver (Return to Neverland and various Disney projects), Kevin Schon (Disney's Villains' Revenge, elderly), Chris Steele (Kingdom Hearts franchise, Fantasmic!), Michael Welch (Disney's Villains' Revenge), Adam Wylie (Jake and the Never Land Pirates)

[[NeverGrewUp The Boy Who Never Grew Up]] and titular character. Peter Pan is a mischievous, unaging boy who lives in Neverland and can fly thanks to a combo of fairy dust and happy thoughts. While often an [[SmallNameBigEgo egotistical]], arrogant and childish person, Peter is very considerate and loyal to his friends.
* TheAce: Very fearless, heroic and a skilled fighter. And of course he can fly.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In the original stories and plays by J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan was one of TheFairFolk and came off as a SociopathicHero - he didn't show much concern for his "friends," and took nightmarish pleasure in killing pirates. Both the Disney version and the stage musical, understandably, left out this aspect of Peter. He's actually a lot less cruel in most adaptations.
* AlliterativeName: '''P'''eter '''P'''an.
* AmbiguousInnocence: Peter is quite cruel. He laughs as John and Michael Darling nearly fall to their deaths, tells Wendy her mother abandoned her, and doesn't seem to understand why Captain Hook is such a bad sport about that incident with the hand.
* BettyAndVeronica:
** The "Archie" for Tink's "Betty" (Peter's oldest friend and companion) and Wendy's "Veronica" (a new girl Peter befriends in London). In the end, Peter doesn't enter a relationship with either for different reasons (Tink because he considers her only a friend, Wendy because she realizes that she doesn't want to be with him).
** The "Archie" for Wendy's "Betty" (shy and demure) and Tiger Lily's "Veronica" (defiant and mysterious). In the end, Peter doesn't end up in a relationship for different reasons (Wendy because she realizes that she doesn't want to be with him, Tiger Lily because Peter is still [[CluelessChickMagnet clueless over romance]]).
* BookDumb: Never having attended any kind of school, he can't read, and is extremely ignorant -- but he is very cunning, quick-thinking and inventive.
* BreakTheHaughty: Peter's overconfident ego takes a hit when it nearly costs his dearest friend her life. After this, he seems to have some understanding that things can't always go his way, and thus willingly returns the Darlings home.
* ChickMagnet: Disney's Peter Pan has [[GreenEyedMonster Tinker Bell]], [[ProperLady Wendy]], [[IndianMaiden Tiger Lily]] and a [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent gang of mermaids]] all over him and easily jealous.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: And this is explored rather thoroughly in the book, both the positive and negative sides to never losing your childish innocence.
* CluelessChickMagnet: Pretty much every girl in the story adores him, though he can't quite work out what they ''want'' with him. Lampshaded in the Disney sequel, by Peter himself. Interestingly enough, that movie introduces Wendy's daughter Jane, who uniquely does ''not'' fall for Peter and finds him annoying rather than charming.
* CrosscastRole: Often in theater, Peter is portrayed by a woman. However, in the Disney film, 2003 film and ''Film/{{Hook}}'' among others, he is played by a boy or a [[Creator/RobinWilliams man]].
* DoesNotLikeShoes: In some adaptations.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Peter is an amoral Jerkass. He still gets angry with Tinkerbell for using the Lost Boys to attempt to kill Wendy indirectly and banishes her. Of course, he then takes it back when Tinkerbell returns to warn him about the bomb and nearly dies trying to save him. When Tink's light starts to fade, Peter begs her PleaseDontLeaveMe.
* FatalFlaw: Peter is apathetic to a fault. He does things on a whim, treats people rather insensitively and as if they're all playing a game, and doesn't consider their feelings. The end result is that Wendy, the girl he wanted in Neverland to never grow up, tires of him and the world and decides to leave. He also nearly gets killed because he won't listen to Tinkerbell's warning that it's a bomb.
* FieryRedhead: In the Disney film, Peter has red hair and is excitable, HotBlooded and rash.
* FisherKing: To Neverland. The island reflects his mood and sleeps when he does or when he leaves.
* GrowingUpSucks: Peter vowed to never grow up when as a baby he overheard his parents planning his future despite only being just born, and fled to Kensington Garden where he met Tinker Bell, learned how to fly and went to Neverland. He actually grows up in ''Hook'' and forgets his past life until later.
* HatesBeingTouched: In one revision of the play, and thus in some adaptations. (Barrie wrote this particular version for an actress whose [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation interpretation]] of Peter heavily implied him to have been [[spoiler:DeadAllAlong]]; the idea is that he instinctively avoids being touched to prevent everyone from finding out that he ''can't'' be touched.)
* HonorBeforeReason:
** Though he's almost completely lacking in empathy in some adaptations, he has always had a very strong sense of fairness and justice -- so strong, in fact that he refuses to cheat or go back on his word on anything, even when keeping to these principles are a distinct hinder for him or might even directly lead to his death. What's more, he never really learns that ''other'' people do not have the same strict moral principles, because learning such things would be the same as maturing, which would be the same as growing up.
** In the Disney adaptation, having given his word of honor to not fly in his final duel with Captain Hook, Peter doggedly refuses to do so even when Hook proves to be the superior swordsman, having forced him to the corner of a mast leading to a fall that can kill him.
* IBelieveICanFly: In ''Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens'' this is stated to be the reason he can fly: he just never questions the fact. As soon as he starts doubting his ability to fly, he loses it, and remains incapable of flight for the rest of the book. By the time of ''Peter and Wendy'', he's somehow regained the ability and is back to not questioning it.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's often unthinkingly cruel, totally self-centered and selfish, and doesn't have much in the way of empathy for others... but he's also capable of great kindness, he'll sacrifice himself for the good of his friends any day, and he's borderline obsessed with everything being fair for everyone.
* KidHero: He's the boy who NeverGrewUp after all.
* KidsAreCruel: Though in Peter's case it's (mostly) not intentional.
* LetsGetDangerous: Peter is a boy who can fly and is immortal. Thus, he tends to treat adventures, flying, and people frivolously. But any time he fights? He uses flight to his advantage and can match Hook blow for blow.
* LivingForeverIsAwesome: The boy who never grows up also never grows old and so he continues having fun in Neverland.
* LivingShadow: Averted in the original novel and play, where Peter's detached shadow is never mentioned to be alive or moving on its own accord. Most of the visual adaptations, though, do portray Peter's shadow as alive and able to live separately from Peter -- probably because this is much more visually exciting than a shadow that just hangs in someone's grip like a piece of laundry.
%%* LonelyAtTheTop
* NeverGrewUp: The {{Trope Namer|s}}. He is ''The Boy Who Never Grew Up''.
* NiceHat: A green hat with a red feather.
* NominalHero: He 'thins out' any Lost Boys who appear to be growing up; can subsist perfectly well on pretend food, and beats any boys who demonstrate hunger after they've missed meals and had to just pretend they ate; cuts parts off the boys to make them 'fit' the trees that are the secret entrances to their hideout; and often changes sides in the middle of battles to make the fight more exciting.
* NotAfraidToDie: "Death would be an awfully big adventure."
* ObliviousToLove: In the novel and play, but averted in several of the films.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Has made all the Lost Boys promise to leave Hook to him.
* OutOfFocus: Tinker Bell gets her own spin off series, and Captain Hook and his crew appear in ''WesternAnimation/JakeAndTheNeverlandPirates'' while Peter has only a few appearances there. In fact Tink appears more often in the media than Peter. Although this is probably due to the fact, that no matter what Disney might claim, Peter Pan is (mostly) a PublicDomainCharacter.
* ParentalAbandonment: When he tried to go home to his parent some time after he first ran away, he found the window barred and another little boy in his bed, and left assuming that his mother had forgotten all about him, though we never know if she really did or not.
* PointyEars: The Disney version gave him pointy ears, and a lot of adaptations since have followed suit.
* ProtagonistTitle: In the most of the adaptations.
* PublicDomainCharacter: Aside from the United Kingdom.
* RedheadInGreen: Again, in the Disney version. In the original book and play he does wear green, but whether or not he has red hair is never mentioned.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Subverted since he's so popular.
* SociopathicHero: In the book, probably much to the surprise of those only familiar with the LighterAndSofter adaptations, and even there he's no saint. Peter spends an awful lot of his time killing off pirates, and often is willing to put his friends in danger simply because it would be interesting or even funny.
* TranquilFury: In the final battle of the Disney version. Oh, he's still happy and playful during the whole ordeal, but he just got back to the ship after Tinker Bell almost died in an explosion, and he had also arrived just in time to save Wendy from falling into the water after walking the plank.
* TheTrickster: He sometimes slips into this role, especially around the pirates.
* VagueAge: The only clue in the book is that he "still has all his baby teeth."
* VerbalTic: His cockerel cry.

[[folder:Tinker Bell]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MaeWhitman (2008 - present)

Peter's fairy sidekick. She is quick to anger and jealousy, but is loyal to Peter.
* AdaptationalHeroism: She is toned down in ''Franchise/DisneyFairies'' where she isn't clingy and a jerk anymore, instead being a PluckyGirl. Also, in the stage musical, where her attempt on Wendy's life is removed altogether.
* AmbiguousInnocence: "Tinker Bell was not all bad. ''Sometimes'' she was even all good."
* BettyAndVeronica: The "Betty" (Peter's oldest friend and companion) to Wendy's "Veronica" (a new girl Peter befriends in London) for Peter's "Archie". In the end, Peter doesn't enter a relationship with either for different reasons (Tink because he considers her only a friend, Wendy because she realizes that she doesn't want to be with him).
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She's not as sweet as she seems.
* BreakoutCharacter: Tinker Bell has become one of the main spokes-characters for Disney and one of its most popular and iconic characters. Disney has also started an entire franchise (''Franchise/DisneyFairies'') where she is the main character. She's also the mascot of Disney DVD/Disney's [=FastPlay=] and was previously the mascot of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection video line and ''Walt Disney Presents''.
* ButtMonkey: Let’s see: she gets stuck in a dresser, Peter ''and'' Michael get pixie dust from her in the most humiliating way possible, almost gets eaten by a frog, gets banished by Peter, gets kidnapped by Smee, gets trapped in a lantern by Hook after tricking her into reveling Peter’s location, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and also finds out her butt is big]].
* CatchPhrase: Book-only. "You silly ass!" whenever Peter upsets or annoys her. To the point that eventually Wendy understands what it means.
* ClingyJealousGirl: She makes multiple attempts on Wendy's life, a trait only slightly toned down for other adaptations.
* CuteMute: In Disney's Peter Pan, Tinker Bell doesn't speak, but only jingles like, well, bells. It is later revealed in her own movies, Tinker Bell does speak, but to humans it sounds like the jingling of bells.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: In some adaptations.
* EasilyForgiven:
** In the Disney movie, Wendy holds no grudge against Tinker Bell despite the fact that she just tried to get her killed. In fact, right after Peter says that he is banishing Tink forever, Wendy gets him to reconsider and reduce it to a week.
** Averted in the original story, where Wendy understandably holds more of a grudge for a while, though she and Tink gradually come to terms with one another in a strange kind of [[VitriolicBestBuds vitriolic companionship.]]
* FairyCompanion: TropeCodifier if not TropeMaker.
* FairySexy: Of course not in the original play, where she is just visible as a dancing light, but the book describes her as being "slightly inclined to ''embonpoint''" (i.e. she's got curves) and "exquisitely gowned in a skeleton leaf, cut low and square, through which her figure could be seen to the best advantage." The [[Disney/PeterPan Disney version]] took this trait and ran with it. Since it was a [[ValuesDissonance different day]], her first appearance lacked a MagicSkirt.
* FatalFlaw: Jealousy. Wendy doesn't have anything against her, and thinks that the fairy is lovely. But Tink doesn't believe any girl should take interest in Peter, and attempts to murder Wendy. This leads to her banishment, and her attempt at an EnemyMine with Hook nearly leads to Peter's death, and hers. To be fair, she gets over this once Peter and Wendy make it clear they won't stay together.
* ForgottenFallenFriend: Book only. [[spoiler:She dies of old age less than a year after Wendy and the boys leave Neverland. When Wendy asks about her, Peter can't remember her at all. He then figures this Tinker Bell person must have died since fairies live such a short time anyway. Naturally, pretty much ''no'' adaptation has ever kept this fate.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: Jealous of Wendy and tricked into revealing Peter's hiding place by Captain Hook, who uses said jealousy against her.
* HartmanHips: In the Disney version they cause a bit of a problem when she's trying to get through the drawers keyhole in Wendy's room.
* HeelRealization: Tink gets it when she realizes that betraying Peter to Hook will lead to the only human she likes getting killed. She immediately tells him, while possibly dying, that he needs to rescue Wendy and the boys from the pirates. During the fight she also tries to stop the pirates from killing the Lost Boys in the crews's nest.
* HeroicSacrifice:
** In the book and most other adaptations, [[spoiler: she drinks poison to save Peter, but is resurrected by [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve clapping hands.]]]]
** In Anime/PeterPanNoBouken (the Anime/WorldMasterpieceTheater version), [[spoiler: she uses almost all of her LifeEnergy to save Peter from a DeathTrap instead. She gets better thanks to Tiger Lily]].
** In the Disney Animated version [[spoiler:she gets terribly damaged trying to remove the exploding time bomb that was intended for Peter. Though his hideout is ruined by the explosion, both survive as he searches for the frail, weak Tinker Bell]].
* HumiliationConga: She goes through one in the first act.
* IntelligibleUnintelligible: How adaptations treat this varies a lot. Several adaptations, including the Disney movie, make Peter the ''only'' one who can understand her perfectly, and with everyone else she has to resort to miming to get her point across.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She can be a bitchy and mean ClingyJealousGirl, but is really loyal to Peter.
* KilledOffForReal:
** [[spoiler: In the book it turns out she died sometime before Peter came to take Wendy back for "spring cleaning" a year after their first adventure, and Peter does not even remember her. Unsurprisingly, most modern sequels such as ''Film/{{Hook}}'' and Disney's ''Return to Neverland'' [[SparedByTheAdaptation ignore this passage and keep her alive]].]]
** [[spoiler: In ''Literature/PeterPanInScarlet,'' which takes place twenty years later, she is [[BackFromTheDead resurrected]] by the wish of the new fairy, Fireflyer, who's been told about her by Wendy and the Lost Boys. At the end of the novel, they're married, have set up a lucrative business selling dreams to pirates, and are so happy they're determined not to get killed for at least a hundred more years.]]
* LaserGuidedKarma: In the Disney version she gets 3:
** Deliberately breaks Wendy’s reflection on the water during her flight? She nearly gets eaten by a fish.
** Tries to have Wendy killed by the Lost Boys? She gets banished by Peter.
** Reveals Peter’s hideaway to Hook out of petty jealousy towards [[RuleOfThree Wendy]]? She gets trapped in a lantern by Hook.
* {{Mascot}}: Tinker Bell is a major mascot for Disney. Just a few places she appears in aside from ''Peter Pan'' include various advertisements, her own media franchise, various shows at the Ride/DisneyThemeParks, the ''Series/WaltDisneyPresents'' intros, the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection VHS/laserdisc logo, and the Disney DVD logo.[[note]]Ironically, some of these appearances are rotoscoped from a ''Walt Disney Presents'' opening (from when it bore the title, ''Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color'').[[/note]]
* MsFanservice: Just look at her sexy green dress and those long legs.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: She attempts to kill Wendy a couple of times in different films, but she either survives or is saved by Peter.
* {{Narcissist}}: One of the first things she does while trying to find Peter’s shadow is to admire herself at a mirror... that is until she finds out how big her butt is.
* OurFairiesAreDifferent: She appears to be your typical fairy. The book explains that because fairies are small, they can only experience one emotion at a time, which would explain her AmbiguousInnocence.
* ShesGotLegs: Especially in the Disney version.
* SilentSnarker: In the Disney movie, before she became SuddenlyVoiced in the ''Disney Fairies'' series.
* SociopathicHero: Willing to murder innocent people for petty and selfish reasons.
* SpiritedYoungLady: She's opinionated and adventurous.
* TheThreeFacesOfEve: In the play and book she is The Child to Wendy's Wife and Tiger Lily's Seductress; though in keeping with the book's tendency to [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruct]] [[AmbiguousInnocence childish "innocence,"]] that means she can be very heartless and murderous in trying to get her own way. (The Disney adaptation changes it so Tinker Bell's a Seductress along with Tiger Lily, turning the three girls' dynamic into a simple MadonnaWhoreComplex.)
* TokenEvilTeammate: One of the "good guys" who tries to ''kill'' another team member out of jealousy definitely counts as this.
* {{Tsundere}}: To Peter, specially in WesternAnimation/PeterPanAndThePirates.
* TheUnapologetic: After she is discovered to have tricked the Lost Boys into attacking Wendy, she shows zero remorse and brushes off Peter's scoldings, leading to her banishment.
* TheUnintelligible: She speaks in a voice that to human ears sounds like tinkling bells. The audience generally does not understand her, [[IntelligibleUnintelligible but Peter does]]. In the book, the Lost Boys do as well, and towards the end, Wendy has at least learned enough of the language to recognize the insults Tink hurls at her.
* UnknownRival: To Wendy, when it comes to Peter's affection. The hatred and rivalry is one-sided on Tinker Bell's part.
* TheVoiceless: In the Disney movie. However, in other adaptations, such as the Anime/WorldMasterpieceTheater [[Anime/PeterPanNoBouken version]], ''WesternAnimation/PeterPanAndThePirates'', and ''Film/{{Hook}}'', she speaks normally.
* WeAreAsMayflies: In the play and novel, fairies have very short lifespans, probably about a year or so. Yet in other versions she lives for at least a century, as shown in ''Film/{{Hook}}'', or as long as Peter.
* {{Yandere}}: Sweet cute Tinker Bell...tries to have Wendy killed out of jealousy.

[[folder:The Lost Boys]]
[[caption-width-right:350: Left to Right: Nibs, the Twins, Cubby, Tootles, Slightly.]]
->'''Cubby Voiced by:''' Robert Ellis, Spencer Breslin (''Return to Never Land''), Wally Wingert (''Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep''), Kaito Arai (Japanese)
->'''Slightly Voiced by:''' Stuffy Singer, Quinn Beswick, Mason Vale Cotton
->'''Nibs Voiced by:''' Jeffrey Silver, Bradley Pierce (''Return to Never Land'')
->'''Twins Voiced by:''' Jonny [=McGovern=], Aaron Spann
->'''Tootles Voiced by:''' Aaron Spann (''You Can Fly with Tinker Bell'', ''Disney On Ice'', ''Adventures in Neverland'')

Peter's trusty gang; boys who were lost or abandoned by their parents and eventually ended up in Never Land. There are a lot of them over the years, and different adaptations and sequels have different Lost Boys -- but the original, and most commonly-used ones, are Tootles, Slightly, Curly, Nibs and the Twins.
* AdaptationNameChange: The Disney version of the Lost Boys took some time to get their proper names, though by the time of ''Return to Neverland'' they are named as their Barrie counterparts. The exception is Curly, who has been renamed "Cubby."
* AscendedExtra: In the Disney sequel they get far more screen-time and stronger characterizations compared to the first movie. They even get to introduce themselves to Jane by name, while their names aren't even ''mentioned'' in the original movie.
* BandOfBrothers: They bicker and fight a lot, but they're always there for each other. At least until Peter says something else.
* BornUnlucky: Tootles. He misses out on more adventures than anyone else because they have a tendency to happen when he's just left the scene, and if something bad happens it generally happens to him.
* ButtMonkey: Again, Tootles, though Slightly also has traces of this.
* TheDividual:
** The Twins are the Twindividual variety; they don't even have individual names[[note]]excluding ''Literature/PeterPanInScarlet,'' where their names are eventually revealed to be [[EmbarrassingFirstName Marmaduke and Binky]][[/note]] and are never seen apart. Some adaptations has them as SingleMindedTwins.
** To a lesser extent, the Lost Boys as a group can be said to have a Syndividual thing going on; they have their individual personalities, but it's as a ''group'' they're important, and most often they only appear as a group.
** Interestingly, the "SingleMindedTwins" trope is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] a few times in the play and the novel; "First Twin" is said to be prouder than his brother, "intellectually the superior of the two", and the best dancer of the group. The truth is that the twins ''intentionally'' act as much alike as possible because Peter, who doesn't have a realistic view of what twins are, thinks that they should.
--->'''Second Twin:''' Slightly, I dreamt last night that the prince found Cinderella.
--->'''First Twin:''' Twin, I think you ought not to have dreamt that, for I didn't, and Peter may say we oughtn't to dream differently, being twins, you know.
* ClassClown: Curly is treated as this in some adaptations, thanks to his ([[InformedAbility stated, but not really shown]]) tendency to get into mischief in the book.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: In some adaptations, like the 2003 film.
* FearlessFool: Nibs has traces of this.
* TheFool:
** Tootles, something Tinker Bell tries to take advantage of. There's a bit of DumbIsGood there as well, as Tootles is very clearly the [[NiceGuy kindest and most selfless]] of the Lost Boys.
** The Disney version has Cubby as TheFool, while Tootles is more the TagalongKid.
* GenderBender: Tootles in ''Literature/PeterPanInScarlet,'' as a part of the books recurring and exaggerated "clothes make the man" theme -- when the now adult Lost Boys become children again by dressing in their children's clothes, Tootles (who only has daughters) is forced to dress as a girl, and so he physically ''becomes'' a girl, [[TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody and starts acting like]] a wannabe PrincessClassic -- and like Wendy, Tinker Bell and Tiger Lily before him/her, develops a crush on Peter and begins displaying traces of HopelessSuitor.
* GrowingUpSucks: Unlike Peter, they ''do'' eventually grow up (if we exclude the Disney version), and quickly discover it's not as much fun as they'd thought. Not played completely straight, though, as several of them actually turn out to have rather nice (if less adventurous) lives as adults.
* HiddenDepths: Tootles, not surprisingly. He even grows up to be a judge.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Slightly; he's snooty and pompous but not a bad person.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Slightly ''thinks'' he remembers what it's like to be a normal boy and have parents. He's wrong.
* NiceGuy: Tootles is the kindest and humblest of the Lost Boys. In ''Literature/PeterPanInScarlet'', Slightly is the resident NiceGuy (Tootles having temporarily become a girl and a wannabe PrincessClassic).
* PluckyComicRelief: Tootles and Slightly share this role, which is probably why they tend to get the most individual attention.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: In some adaptations, they can have traces of this.
* TookALevelInKindness: Slightly in ''Literature/PeterPanInScarlet'' -- very notably so.
* TheVoiceless: Tootles in the Disney movie.
* YesMan: ''All'' of them are this to Peter.

!!Darling Family

[[folder:Wendy Darling]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Kathryn Beaumont (1953-2005), Hynden Walch (2005-present), Harriet Owen (young, ''Return to NeverLand''), Kath Soucie (in ''Return to Never Land''), Kat Cressida (in tandem with Kathryn Beaumont), America Young (as an 8-year-old, in ''Tinker Bell''), Maia Mitchell (in ''Jake and the Never Land Pirates'')

Wendy Moira Angela Darling becomes Peter's companion. An enthusiast on telling the stories of Peter Pan, Wendy idolises the flying boy and accompanies him to Neverland with her brothers but must learn she has to come of age sooner or later. She later grows up and has a daughter named Jane.
* ActionGirl: In the 2003 film, in which she wields a sword.
* AdaptationalBadass: In the book, 1953 Disney movie, and most other adaptations, she's a bit of a DamselInDistress. Come the 2003 movie, she's a full-on ActionGirl complete with a sword.
* AscendedFangirl: She was the biggest fan and TheStoryteller of Peter Pan's adventures before actually meeting Peter and joining him in his adventures in Neverland. It's the reason Peter takes her to Neverland in the first place.
* BettyAndVeronica:
** The "Veronica" (a new girl Peter befriends in London) to Tink's "Betty" (Peter's oldest friend and companion) for Peter's "Archie". In the end, Peter doesn't enter a relationship with either for different reasons (Tink because he considers her only a friend, Wendy because she realizes that she doesn't want to be with him).
** The "Betty" (shy and demure) to Tiger Lily's "Veronica" (defiant and mysterious) for Peter's "Archie". In the end, Peter doesn't end up in a relationship for different reasons (Wendy because she realizes that she doesn't want to be with him, Tiger Lily because Peter is still [[CluelessChickMagnet clueless over romance]]).
* ButtMonkey: Her time in Neverland wasn't that easy. She almost falls to death after being shot by the Lost Boys, she's hated by Tinker Bell, picked on and insulted by the mermaids, forced to work at Tiger Lily's party (while watching Peter and Tiger Lily flirting), and captured by Hook who also tries to kill her.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Subverted. In both versions Wendy becomes visibly jealous of Peter's relationship with Tiger Lily, but chooses to leave Neverland rather than cheapen herself by acting clingy or jealous.
* ComingOfAge: If one looks at ''Peter Pan'' closely, it's really about Wendy learning that an idealized life of eternal childhood may not be the one that she truly wants to live.
* CoolBigSis: To John and Michael, and later also to the Lost Boys.
* DamselInDistress: She is captured at one point or another.
* GreenEyedMonster: In both the book and movie version, Wendy is very jealous of Peter's relationship with Tiger Lily. It doesn't prompt her to be more than a bit snippy (though for [[NiceGirl Wendy]], [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness that's a huge deal]]), though it is part of what prompts her to leave Neverland in both versions.
* GrowingUpSucks: At first, but after her adventures in Never Land, she accepts and embraces it.
-->Wendy was grown up. You need not be sorry for her. She was one of the kind that likes to grow up. In the end she grew up of her own free will a day quicker than other girls.
* HairDecorations: Her blue hair bow in the Disney version.
* KidHero: Wendy is the same size as Peter Pan, whose age is [[VagueAge vague]], but who still has all his baby teeth. Most adaptations age them up to around 12, but the fact that they're children is still a key plot point.
* MsImagination: A dreamy and imaginative girl who likes to tell stories to her younger siblings.
* NiceGirl: She's very motherly and caring.
* NotGrowingUpSucks: In the book, Wendy wants to grow up and have her own family. She leaves Neverland because she realizes that Peter can never give her what she truly wants. The last chapter of the novel even goes so far as to reassure the reader that Wendy was happy with growing up.
* NotSoDifferent: After having to deal with a jealous pixie and jealous mermaids, Wendy shows herself to get just as jealous when Tiger Lily flirts with Peter. [[NotSoSimilar However, she doesn't attack Tiger Lily over it.]]
* PajamaCladHero Because she left with Peter in the middle of the night, she spends most of the story in her nightgown. And usually wears slippers.
* PassingTheTorch: Of sorts to her daughter Jane.
* PluckyGirl: She's certainly optimistic.
* ProperLady: The kind and mature TeamMom who likes cooking, cleaning and sewing.
* TheProtagonist: Although Peter's the title character, it really is Wendy's story, and she's by far the most developed character of the bunch. Early printings of the book were called "Peter and Wendy."
* SilkHidingSteel: Wendy is a very mature girl with the ability to influence someone like Peter Pan himself. During the WalkThePlank scene in the Disney version, she's the definition of composed, only shedding a {{Single Tear}} as she walks to what she thinks will be her death.
* TheStoryteller: She loves telling Peter Pan stories to her younger brothers, much to her father's dismay.
* TeamMom: Takes on the role partly by choice and partly because she is begged to. She does said role so well that she's actually the one providing the page's picture.
* TheThreeFacesOfEve: Between her, Tinker Bell, and Tiger Lily, Wendy is ''definitely'' '''The Wife'''. Calm, sensible, TeamMom. What more can we say? She even plays make-believe to be Peter's wife all the time in the book.
* TrueBlueFemininity: In the Disney version she wears a blue nightdress and blue hair bow, emphasizing her gentle and motherly nature. Even as an adult in the sequel, she is seen to wear a blue dressing gown.
* UnknownRival: To Tiger Lily, when it comes to Peter's affection. Wendy gets upset when she sees Tiger Lily flirting with Peter, but Tiger Lily was never aware of Wendy's jealousy, at least in the Disney version.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Despite her initial fear of growing up, she's actually very mature.

[[folder:John and Michael Darling]]
[[caption-width-right:350:Michael (left) and John (right).]]
->'''John Voiced by:''' Paul Collins, Ben Diskin (in the Disney Read-Along Book), Elliot Reeve (''Jake and the Never Land Pirates'')
->'''Michael Voiced by:''' Tommy Luske, Aaron Spann (''Disney On Ice''), Colby Mulgrew (''Jake and the Never Land Pirates'')

Wendy's younger brothers, and her regular audience for stories about Peter Pan. They accompany her to Neverland and become part of the Lost Boys for a while, but eventually return home.
* {{Adorkable}}: John, in the Disney movie and Anime/PeterPanNoBouken.
* AgeLift: Most notably with Michael in the 2003 movie; in the book he's around three or four, but in the movie he's eight. John is eight in the book, ten in the musical and around eleven or twelve in the movie. Averted in the Disney movie, which has them roughly the same age as in the book.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Partially subverted, in that Wendy is the one who insists on bringing them along -- though Peter blatantly doesn't care about them and can take or leave them.
* BusCrash: [[spoiler:Michael's fate in the authorized sequel: see "KilledOffForReal" below.]]
* ButtMonkey: John, in ''Anime/PeterPanNoBouken''.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: In battle. Michael manages to weaponize his teddy bear by slipping a cannonball in it, and John reveals himself to be a strategist when facing the pirates.
* CompanionCube: Michael's teddy bear in the Disney version.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindows: John has brown hair and eyes.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:''Literature/PeterPanInScarlet'' reveals that Michael died in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI.]]
* TheLeader: John is named by Peter leader of the Lost Boys and he accepts the role.
* NiceHat: John wears a top hat, which in the book is eventually used as a chimney for Wendy's house.
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: An in-universe variant with Michael in the book, who is designated (by Wendy) to be the "baby" and is made to be younger than he really is.
* PajamaCladHero: Along with Wendy, they spend their entire time in Neverland in their sleepwear (apart from John's top hat, which he grabbed at the last moment before flying off to Neverland). John usually wears a nightshirt, while Michael often wears footie pajamas (though he too wears a nightshirt in the 2003 film).
* TheRuntAtTheEnd: When the Lost Boys go out on a trek, Michael always seems to be the one bringing up the rear.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: John does this quite a bit
* StuffyBrit: John. It's especially noticeable in the Disney movie, but it's definitely present in the book and play as well.
* ShrinkingViolet: In Anime/PeterPanNoBouken, John is shown as very awkward and shy. It doesn't help that [[AmazonChaser he has a crush on]] [[{{Tomboy}} Tiger Lily]], and since she's a massive {{Tsundere}} there it takes him a while to impress her.
* TagalongKid: Both of them, to some extent, but Michael especially.

[[folder:George and Mary Darling]]
->'''George Voiced by:''' Hans Conried, John Carradine (''Lux Radio Theater'')
->'''Mary Voiced by:''' Heather Angel, Kathryn Cressida (''Tinker Bell'')

The parents of Wendy, John and Michael. Mary is a loving, accepting and beautiful woman who nevertheless is a bit of a ControlFreak, and George is a temperamental and overly-proud, but ultimately kind and generous man. They make the mistake of going to a party on the same night Peter Pan is hunting for his shadow, and in the novel they go for months without seeing their children, but in the Disney version the children return before the parents have returned home from the same party. Also in the Novel they end up adopting all the Lost Boys.

[[folder: Tropes applying to both ]]

* ParentsAsPeople: Mostly noticeable with George, who is not a perfect father by any means, but does try.
* RedOniBlueOni: Calm, mild-mannered and soft-spoken Mary is the Blue Oni to George's blustery, temperamental Red Oni.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Check out the Disney version -- the father is a chubby, boorish old guy, and the mother looks pretty, young, and has a nice figure.


[[folder: Tropes applying to George ]]

* BreakTheHaughty: George Darling is proud, blustering and sometimes unthinkingly cruel, but when these traits are indirectly leads to his children vanishing he is heartbroken, and becomes both humbler and kinder as a result.
* TheChewToy: Sometimes.
-->Poor Nana. Oh, yes. Poor Nana. But, 'Poor Father', oh no!
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: In the novel, George inflicts one on himself after Peter has flown away with the children; blaming himself because he had banished Nana to the kennel so she couldn't protect them, he moves into the kennel himself and refuses to leave it until the children are back. He even arranges to have the kennel (with him inside) carried to and from his work every day so he can still work but keep up his self-inflicted punishment. He becomes rather famous around London as a charming eccentric as a result, causing Mary to wonder whether he really views it as a punishment anymore or whether he's started to enjoy it.
* HairTriggerTemper: George is very quick to anger.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: The book makes it clear that Mr. Darling's a blustering braggart because he secretly fears that people don't ''admire'' him.
* JerkassHasAPoint: He overreacted a tad by forcing Wendy to move out of the playroom the following day, but he was justifiably upset when the boys took his coat cufflings to use as buried treasure for their game without asking and drew a treasure map on his shirt front for his company party where he was the guest of honor. Wendy didn't know what the boys did, since she was surprised to see the map on his shirtfront, but maybe she should have reminded the boys to be more careful. He also has a bit of justification for having Nanna put outside, as he had just tripped on Nanna, knocking her over slightly while he got his foot caught on a toy wagon and went flying across the room, hitting the wall hard.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: George can often come across as overly unsympathetic, almost antagonistic, thanks to his pride and temper, but he ''does'' have a heart, and he does love his children very much.
* SingleIssueWonk: In the book, Mr. Darling never stops complaining about having a ''dog'' for a nurse. (Before his CharacterDevelopment.) It gets to the point that when Mrs. Darling discovers Peter Pan in the nursery and he leaves his shadow behind, she decides against telling Mr. Darling because she already knows what he's going to say--"It all comes with having a dog for a nurse."
* SlaveToPR: Somewhat justified in that he works at an office where advancement depends on good social standing. In the novel he takes this UpToEleven wherein he's ''obsessed'' with doing things just like the neighbors in everything (from how he dresses to whether they have a nanny to help raise their kids), which is why he objects to having a dog for a nurse--what would the neighbors think?!


[[folder: Tropes applying to Mary ]]

* GoodParents: Mary is the understanding mother of her children. Although she didn't entirely believe in Peter Pan until the end of the movie, she believed in the spirit of him. She was deeply concerned about her children's well-being, especially Wendy's, who was being forced to grow up too soon by George.
* LoveMartyr: The book's LemonyNarrator says under no uncertain terms that Mrs. Darling is a platonic case for her children, since they selfishly abandoned her to have adventures in Neverland without giving a thought to how it might hurt her, knowing she'll instantly forgive and welcome them back with open arms whenever they could be arsed to return. The LemonyNarrator then suggests informing Mrs. Darling that her kids are coming home to teach them a lesson, but [[BeyondTheImpossible somehow she wordlessly pleads with him not to spoil the surprise of her runaway children coming home to her because the poor Darlings would be so disappointed if she wasn't surprised by their return]]. The narrator grudgingly agrees, but only out of respect for Mrs. Darling.
* MumLooksLikeASister: Mary's youthful appearance and strong resemblance to Wendy could have others confuse Mary as her daughter's older sister.
* NiceGirl: Mary is kind, loving, motherly, and understanding.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Mary is a grown up version of Wendy.
* WomenAreWiser: In pretty much every version of the story (including the original play and novel), she's much more wise, intuitive, and sensible than her husband.

->'''Voiced by:''' Jimmy [=MacDonald=], Dee Bradley Baker

The Darlings' substitute-for-a-nursemaid; a huge but loving Newfoundland dog. She was originally a stray who "belonged to no one in particular" before the Darlings took her in, and though she is subject to a bit of gossip, and George Darling occasionally suspects she thinks the children are her puppies, she is as good and attentive a nursemaid as any and much beloved by the family.
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: In the Disney version, she wears a nurse's cap.
* AdaptationSpeciesChange: Well, breed change. She's a Newfoundland in the book, but a St. Bernard in the Disney movie.
* BigFriendlyDog: She's ''huge,'' but also hugely loving.
* GenerationXerox:
** In ''Return to Neverland'', she's replaced by her SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Nana II, who looks and acts almost exactly like her -- the main difference being that she wears a war helmet and backpack rather than the nurse's cap of the original Nana.
** In ''Literature/PeterPanInScarlet'' we meet her great-great-great-grandpuppy, simply called "the puppy," who even as a small puppy looks enough like Nana that Peter think it ''is'' Nana and that she's shrunk in the wash. (Unlike Nana, though, the puppy is noted as being a very poor nursemaid; it happily licks the children goodnight and lets them use it as a pillow, but doesn't bother at all to make sure they brush their teeth.)
* NearlyNormalAnimal: She's smarter than the average dog, capable of doing almost all the things a human nursemaid would do.
* PantomimeAnimal: In stage productions, traditionally played by a human actor in costume.

->'''Voiced by:''' Harriet Owen (speaking), Jonatha Brooke (singing), Aya Ueto (Japanese)

Jane is Wendy's daughter and shows up at the end of the original book/play and a few other adaptation, as a new girl to be Peter's "mother" in Neverland. When she grows up she has a daughter named Margaret, who takes on the same role. While Jane has a very small role in most versions of the story, she is the main character of Disney's ''Return to Neverland'' where she is kidnapped by Hook and his crew (under the mistaken impression that she's Wendy) and taken to Neverland to be used as bait to trap Peter. This incarnation of Jane is characterized as always trying to have a practical attitude towards life, much like her grandfather George.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In the original story/play she's a GenerationXerox of her mother. In the Disney version she's her total opposite.
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: She tries her hardest to be practical and mature.
* AscendedFangirl: She was a fan of Peter Pan and Neverland when she was younger. At an older age, she was able to meet Pan and travel to Neverland personally.
* BigSisterInstinct: She's very protective of her little brother Danny and Tootles. She can be quite harsh to Danny though, at least before CharacterDevelopment.
* BreakTheHaughty: The Disney version has a very negative and stiff attitude, which gets her into a lot of trouble.
* BritishStuffiness: As they say, like grandfather like granddaughter.
* BrokenBird: The song "I'll Try" from ''Return to Neverland'' explains her inner thoughts quite well.
* CharacterDevelopment: After her adventures with Peter Pan she becomes more imaginative and more adventurous, much like her little brother, Danny.
* TheComicallySerious: From the moment she first arrives in Neverland until CharacterDevelopment finally sinks in. Until she accepts the fun of it, everything in Neverland seems hellbent on hilariously backfiring on her.
* ConstantlyCurious: Her main character trait in the original novel; she's described as having an almost permanent "odd inquiring look, as if from the moment she arrived on the mainland she wanted to ask questions."
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Wendy's character arc was about learning that no matter how much she might want to stay a child, she needs to grow up eventually. Her daughter, Jane, on the other hand, grew up too fast due to World War II and needed to be reminded that she is still a child.
* TheCynic: ''Return to Neverland'' pretty much has her as Peter's antithesis: Where Peter doesn't want to grow up, Jane doesn't want to be a child. Hence, she has an ''extremely'' cynical and often humorless outlook on things.
* DaddysGirl: Very close to her father and was adamant about staying in England because she promised she would there until he came home.
* DamselInDistress: Less than twenty minutes into ''Return to Neverland'' she gets kidnapped by Hook and his pirate crew.
* DefrostingIceQueen: After spending time in Neverland, she stops being so stubborn and regains the faith in Peter Pan and the fairies.
* {{Foil}}: Again in the Disney version, with her no-nonsense dismissal of all things childish, she is this to both her mother Wendy and to Peter Pan.
* FreudianExcuse: Her attitude in ''Return to Neverland'' is understandable if you consider that she's a preteen girl with an absent father during a war.
* GenerationXerox: In the original story/play, she's pretty much exactly like Wendy was at her age. Averted by the Disney version, who's almost the complete opposite of what Wendy was like and she's actually more similar to her grandfather George (see their attitude towards Peter Pan). Justified since [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII there's a war going on]], and some people have different ways of coping with it.
* AGirlAndHerX: In the Disney version, she has her canine companion, Nana II.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler: She has one of these when Hook and his men capture Peter and the lost boys because of her deal with the Captain. She has another one when she finds Tink, seemingly dead.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: In the Disney sequel ''Return to Neverland'' she's initially a cynical LittleMissSnarker with a bitter and negative attitude and also dismissive of Peter Pan and his friends. She eventually grows out of it.
* LittleMissBadass: Compared to her mother, she's involved in more action scenes, particularly in the climax when she stands up to Hook and is able to rescue Peter and the Lost Boys.
* LittleMissSnarker: She got Peter so good at one point, he actually fell out of the air.
-->"Or... maybe you're full of hot air."
* MistakenIdentity: Jane was kidnapped because Hook mistook her for her mother Wendy.
* OneOfTheBoys: Over the course of ''Return to Neverland'', she eventually becomes this with the Lost Boys and very happy about it.
* {{Pajama Clad Hero}}ine: Like her mother in the first film, she spends most of the sequel in her nightgown.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: In ''Return to Neverland'' Jane is dubbed first ever Lost Girl.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Jane looks like Wendy as a child, except with a bob haircut instead of RegalRinglets and a bow. Deconstructed as their strong resemblance causes Captain Hook and Crew to kidnap her thinking she was Wendy.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: In the book, she becomes this for Wendy as Peter's new "mother." She gets her own SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute in her daughter Margaret. Averted in the Disney version, though, where she's nothing like Wendy.
* TookALevelInIdealism: Her time in Neverland helped reignite her childlike wonder she lost as a child.
* TookALevelInKindness: Jane becomes more kinder during her time in Neverland, losing her negative attitude that made her come across as a {{jerkass}}.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: At first, Jane is an imaginative young girl, who loves hearing Wendy's stories of Peter Pan. However, when World War II hits, Jane is forced to grow up quickly. She becomes bitterly cynical and practical (much like her maternal grandfather, George), and loses her faith in things like Peter Pan and fairies.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Andrew [=McDonough=]

Daniel (or better known as Danny) is the son of Edward and Wendy Darling, Jane's younger brother, and an avid believer of Peter Pan.
* CanonForeigner: In the original story Jane is an only child.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: He is an innocent boy (as is made evident of his dislike of war and war devices, such as bomber planes and their bombs).
* {{Fanboy}}: He deeply believes in Peter Pan and tries to emulate him right down to the same colored hat with the red feather and a wooden sword.
* {{Keet}}: Danny is a very adventurous and fun-loving 4-year-old boy.
* NiceHat: He wears a hat similar to Peter Pan.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: For his Uncle Michael -- they have similar physical characteristics and innocent nature.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: Falling under SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute, Danny looks ''near'' identical to his Uncle Michael, with the only difference being in eye color (Michael had blue, Danny has green).

-->'''Voiced by:''' Roger Rees, Denis Leary (currently)

Edward is Wendy's husband, the father of Jane and Danny, and is currently fighting in World War II.
* ActionDad: He's the father of two and is a soldier of the British Army.
* DisappearedDad: He had to leave his family when his children were still very young (especially Danny) to fight in the war.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In the original story, his name is not mentioned when Wendy grew up and married him.
* NiceGuy: Edward is a caring, soft-spoken and loving husband and father.
* SatelliteCharacter: Doesn't get much characterization, and only serves as a reason behind Jane trying to behave like an adult.
* SecondLove: For Wendy. While Peter Pan was her first crush, she ultimately ended up falling in love with and marrying Edward.

!!Captain Hook and His Crew

[[folder:Captain James Hook]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Hans Conried (original film), Creator/JohnCarradine (''Lux Radio Theater''), Jack Wagner (Disneyland attraction), Corey Burton (1983-present), Creator/DannyKaye (Disneyland 25th Anniversary special), Creator/TomHiddleston (''The Pirate Fairy'')

The BigBad of the novel and all of its adaptations. One of the greatest pirates in history, Captain Hook's right hand (left hand in most of the adaptations) was chopped off by Peter and fed to a crocodile who now has a taste for Hook. He has a personal grudge to settle with Peter because of this.
* AdaptationalComicRelief:
** The Disney film turns him into a LaughablyEvil ButtMonkey who regularly suffers AmusingInjuries, especially in his combat against the crocodile.
** The stage musical made around the same time makes him a mincing LargeHam who is difficult to take seriously. This is also the version that [[Film/{{Hook}} Dustin Hoffman's portrayal]] takes after, albeit with a more sinister edge.
* AdaptationalWimp: In the Disney movie. As Internet reviewer Blog/UnshavedMouse [[ notes]]:
-->''Even his own men don't seem to fear him and he’s murdering them on a regular basis! [The book] mentions that Hook is feared by “the Sea-Cook”. As in, [[Literature/TreasureIsland Long John Freakin' Silver]] was afraid of this guy. The Disney version wouldn't scare Captain Crunch.''
** Also worth noting that the original book and play both have Hook FaceDeathWithDignity once Peter defeats him and the crocodile catches up with him. Disney's cartoon changes this to a slapstick example of ExitPursuedByABear.
** Amazingly enough, he's made even ''less'' competent in ''WesternAnimation/JakeAndTheNeverlandPirates,'' though justifiable considering it's an EdutainmentShow. Seriously, he's been reduced to essentially the role of [[WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer Swiper the Fox]].
* AdaptationNameChange: In the original novel, "Hook" is just a nickname and that his real name is [[TheScottishTrope too feared to be said out loud]]. However, most adaptations have his real name be James Hook even before he lost his hand.
* AnythingButThat: His greatest fear is the crocodile.
* BadBoss: See EstablishingCharacterMoment for just one example. The only member of his crew that he treats with any sort of respect is Mr. Smee, and even then, it's ''very'' limited.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled:
** In the novel, the poison he carries is actually to allow him to commit suicide if captured. Using it on Peter is purely opportunistic.
** The '50s stage musical handles his death this way, replacing his more straightforward {{Driven to Suicide}} death from the original play. Peter brings the crocodile on board the ship, and Hook jumps overboard to escape it after delivering a {{Dying Declaration of Hate}}. Peter then throws the bomb that Hook was about to use to kill everyone onboard after him, and it explodes offstage, [[NoKillLikeOverkill presumably blowing him to smithereens in the water, with the crocodile gleefully diving to feast on his remains.]]
* BigBad: The main villain in all of the adaptations.
* ButtMonkey: The Disney version, especially in the scenes with the crocodile. But he's ridiculed a lot and suffers AmusingInjuries even when the crocodile is not around.
* ChildHater: Though in his "dying speech", he seems to regret that "no little children love [him]."
* ClassicVillain: He has the vices of Pride, Vanity and Hatred.
* CombatPragmatist: When Peter realises that he has the high ground and gives Hook a hand up to make it a fair fight, Hook bites him and strikes quickly and viciously. This likely just feeds his GreenEyedMonster status below, as it drives home to him that Peter has a lot more "good form" than him.
* TheDandy: He's compared to Charles II.
* DastardlyWhiplash: His Disney incarnation. Twirly mustache? Check. [[SinisterSchnoz Big nose]]? Check. Smoking cigars? Check. Old-fashioned linguistics, delivered in a [[LargeHam hammy manner]]? Check.[[note]]Voiced by Hans Conried, a.k.a., [[WesternAnimation/DudleyDoRight Dudley Do-Right's arch-nemesis Snidely Whiplash]], and the Grinch in WesternAnimation/HalloweenIsGrinchNight.[[/note]] [[HairTriggerTemper Bad temper]]? Check. Abused sidekick? Check. [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Constant failure at his schemes]]? Double check!
* DeadlyEuphemism: To "shake hands" means to be clawed to death with his hook.
* DirtyCoward: In the Disney version he's far more cowardly character than the original.
* TheDreaded: Said to be the only man [[Literature/TreasureIsland Long John Silver]] ever feared, and everyone in the book except Peter is terrified of him.
* DrivenToSuicide: In the original play, he throws himself to the crocodile in despair when he finally realizes he can't defeat Peter. The book softens this to having him provoke Peter into showing "bad form" by kicking him overboard, without realizing that the crocodile is waiting below. Subsequent LighterAndSofter adaptations have moved even further away from this trope: for example, Disney's Hook accidentally falls overboard while trying to claw Peter in the back and is last seen [[SparedByTheAdaptation swimming frantically away from the crocodile.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His first scene in the book has a pirate accidentally ruffle his clothes. Hook promptly kills him for it, and lets the corpse just get tossed aside. His introduction in the Disney movie is similar — annoyed by a pirate's off-key singing, he absent-mindedly shoots him and lets him fall down into the sea, completely undisturbed.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: A variation; Hook wanting Wendy to be mother to himself and his pirates suggests he wants a ReplacementGoldfish for his real mother. He also [[InvokedTrope invokes]] this in the sequel to the Disney version, where he cites going back to his old Mama Hook as one of the reasons he needs Jane to help him escape Neverland.
* EvilIsHammy: Hans Conried, the voice of Captain Hook in the Disney version, was clearly having a blast while recording his lines.
-->'''''[+++ "[[SayMyName SMEEEEEEE!!!!]]" +++]'''''
* ExitPursuedByABear: In the original play and book he's eaten by the crocodile. In the Disney version he is last seen swimming away from it.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: ''Only'' in the book and the play. Adaptations tend to give him a far less dignified and more humiliating exit.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He's often jovial or extravagantly courteous (especially with Wendy,) but he keeps up the same attitude while making people walk the plank.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Implied in the Disney film, when the other pirates are throwing knives at the cabin door with his drawing on it.
* GreenEyedMonster: Hook's motivation for hunting Peter is his cocky attitude and "good form" (charisma), which Peter maintains [[TheAce without trying or even realizing it]]. Hook believes this is the best form to have.
* HookHand: The master of this trope. He apparently considers it more useful than his original hand.
* HookHandedPianist: Captain Hook plays a melancholy rendition of his own leitmotiv on an old but fancy piano located on his ship whilst trying to convince Tinker Bell to betray Peter Pan.
* HumiliationConga: Fights between Peter and Hook are so lopsided that they devolve into a series of terrifying and shameful experiences for Hook.
* IcyBlueEyes: Described in the book as "blue as forget-me-nots".
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: Captain Hook is always dressed in his best clothes. [[spoiler:Except during ''Literature/PeterPanInScarlet,'' where his best clothes all got ravelled and half-dissolved along with Hook himself after the stay in the crocodile's stomach that turned him into Ravello the Ravelling Man -- and so, when he returns to his old self at the end of the novel and is Hook again, he has to make do with what is repeatedly stated to be his ''second'' best clothes. It's still noted that they look good on him, though.]]
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: The Disney version. He's a legitimate threat to everyone... everyone ''except'' his two greatest enemies, Peter Pan and the crocodile.
* IWasQuiteALooker: According to ''The Pirate Fairy'', he was quite handsome when he was young and had both hands.
* {{Jerkass}}: Justififed reason and the occasional sympathetic moments aside, Captain Hook is, at his worst, a pugnacious, callous pirate who's all too eager to KickTheDog and murder a group of children (who, by all accounts and purposes, don't know what they are doing is wrong) in cold blood. And let's not forget his tendency to kill his own crew for slight mistakes, such as bothering him by singing off-key (in the Disney version) or ruffling his clothes (in the book).
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: While he does have lines that even he wouldn't cross, ''whenever'' Captain Hook does something seemingly nice or selfless, he ''always'' does it if it's in his benefit or gets him ahead somehow. This even applies to the LighterAndSofter ''WesternAnimation/JakeAndTheNeverlandPirates'' adaptation, surprisingly enough.
* LaughablyEvil: The Disney version is a comedic villain, with extremely hammy mannerisms and getting comically chased around by the crocodile. The stage musical version isn't that much more serious, as well.
* ManipulativeBastard: He shows this skill on Tinker Bell in the Disney version, and on Wendy in the 2003 film.
%%* NiceHat
* NobleDemon: The narrator stresses that he is "not entirely unheroic," and he is certainly not without [[EvenEvilHasStandards lines he refuses to cross]]. For an example, Captain Hook seems hesitant in harming an innocent. This is evidenced by an episode of ''WesternAnimation/PeterPanAndThePirates'' where he refused to blow the Indian Camp to smithereens (despite the fact that Peter was there), on the count of there being unguilty women and children in the ground. Although, he does try and kill anyone who so much as triggers him in the slightest, suggesting that ''he'', and he alone, decides who is innocent and who isn't.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: In the 2003 movie, to a very unsettling degree.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler: In ''Literature/PeterPanInScarlet'', it's revealed that Captain Hook survived being eaten by the crocodile and eventually managed to escape -- but his stay in a crocodile's stomach had changed him beyond recognition, and he became Ravello the circus man.]]
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Hook in the original play/novel ''seems'' like an IneffectualSympatheticVillain until he orchestrates a mass murder of the Indians. He's also one in the Disney movie. While he's Neverland's ButtMonkey here, he's also a danger to anyone who's not Peter Pan or the Crocodile, he comes close to actually kill Pan several times, and he kills his own men without batting an eye[[note]]We see him kill one [[DisproportionateRetribution for singing off-key]], and an offhand comment by Smee implies that it's not the only member of his crew he killed[[/note]].
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: He wants to be the one to defeat Peter.
* {{Pirate}}: He and [[Literature/TreasureIsland Long John Silver]] probably share TropeCodifier status for the villainous pirate.
* PirateParrot: Has one in the 2003 film.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Implied in the Disney adaptation.
-->"A jealous female can be tricked into anything!"
* RedRightHand: Come on, you really thought a guy with a hook for a hand was going to be good?
* ShroudedInMyth: His origins.
** WordOfGod says that "Hook was not his true name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date set the country in a blaze."
** Additional details have Hook as having attended Eton College. Barrie gave a speech at the college in 1927 where he gave more of Hook's background: one story had it Hook once sat on a wall meant for the privilege of Eton graduates. When a guard confronted him about it, rather than admit he was a student - and shame the school in the process - Hook nobly hopped off to retain the school's honor.
** We know Hook once served as boatswain to Blackbeard, and was the ''only'' pirate that [[Literature/TreasureIsland Long John Silver]] ever feared -- though in ''Literature/PeterPanInScarlet'' he himself vehemently denies ever having worked for Blackbeard, going on a minor rant on what an insult it is to assume that he'd ever work under such an ignorant lout as Blackbeard.
** The novel ''Peter and the Starcatchers'' (currently being adapted to film by Disney) posits that Hook was originally known as Captain Black Stache, after his black mustache.
** ''[[Franchise/DisneyFairies The Pirate Fairy]]'' presents him as a young cabin boy, and with his friendship with the fairy Zarina, presents him as a ShadowArchetype to Peter...[[spoiler: at least until it's revealed that not only is he the true captain of the ship, he was only using Zarina for her pixie dust]].
* ASinisterClue:
** Hook's missing right hand requires him to use his left for a lot of things. Averted in many films or plays where the hook is transferred to his left hand so the right-handed actor can use his dominant hand. Also averted in the Disney animated version, because the animators had more experience of drawing right hands.
** Played true to the book in the 2003 live action version, where they kept it on the actor's right hand to allow him precise control over it, such as when he uses the tip to settle Smee's glasses on his nose.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In the book, he dies after being eaten by the crocodile, but in the Disney movie, he immediately jumps out of the crocodile's mouth unharmed shortly after being swallowed up and later swimming away screaming for Smee with the crocodile still behind him.
* VillainousValour: The crocodile notwithstanding, Hook is willing to fight anyone or anything.
* WeCanRuleTogether: He invites Wendy and the boys to either join him or WalkThePlank.
* WickedCultured: An evil, bloodthirsty pirate he may be, but he's also a refined, well-schooled gentleman who places a huge value on "good form."
* WouldHurtAChild: Duh. He regularly attempts to kill Peter Pan and doesn't hesitate to do the same with other kids.

[[folder:Mr. Smee]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Bill Thompson (original), Jack Wagner (Disneyland attraction), Corey Burton (1983-2002), Jeff Bennett (2002-present)

Captain Hook's boatswain or first mate (depending on the version) and BumblingSidekick. The nicest pirate in the Jolly Roger's crew.
* AffablyEvil: Although he never objected to Captain Hook's actions, it's clear that Mr. Smee is considerably less evil than his boss, being more of a PunchClockVillain.
* AntiVillain: To the point where he's only a "villain" because he's on Captain Hook's side.
* BareYourMidriff: His belly is often exposed in the Disney films.
* BumblingSidekick: Loyal to Hook but also very bumbling and incompetent, much to Hook's annoyance.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: It's not obvious, but he has his moments. For example, his reaction to the crew threatening him is to stick his tongue out and resume the business of shaving his captain. He also shoos the crocodile away politely with his foot, rows like mad to save Hook from the reptile, and captures Tinker Bell in a surprise ambush.
* DependingOnTheWriter: He's either Hook's boatswain (like in the novel) or first mate (like many Disney adaptations).
* TheDragon: To Hook.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: He starts crying when Wendy sings a song about motherly love and lifts up his shirt to unveil his "Mother" tattoo.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: He is Hook's first mate and trusted assistant, but the other pirates don't seem to like him that much.
* ICallItVera:
-->''Smee had pleasant names for everything, and his cutlass was Johnny Corkscrew, because he wiggled it in the wound.''
* LovableCoward: Often seen fleeing the Jolly Roger in a longboat.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: The original book goes into great detail about how pathetic-but-lovable he is.
* NiceGuy: In spite of serving a feared captain, and a crew of brutal pirates, Mr. Smee is, ultimately, a kind-hearted character. Though he makes attempts to perform villainous acts, his gentle nature often gets in the way of this; his ultimate agenda usually focusing around keeping peace and some form of stability within Captain Hook's life.
* NiceHat: He wears a red stocking cap with a red pom-pom ornament on top.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: In the original Disney movie, his voice actor Bill Thompson occasionally tries to pronounce the odd word with an Irish accent. It's not exactly convincing, so it's hardly surprising that Creator/JeffBennett, who voices Smee in modern Disney productions (including ''Return to Neverland''), [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent completely drops this]] and makes Smee an all-out American.
%%* {{Pirate}}
* PunchClockVillain: While there's no doubt he could kill the Lost Boys if he wanted and slaps them around, none of them can actually take him seriously as a threat and find him lovable. Since Smee ''wants'' to be a real villain, Hook actually considers it "too cruel" to tell him what children ''really'' think of him.
* ShoutOut: His facial appearance tends to have a composite resemblance to Doc and Happy from ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Compared to Hook and the rest of the crew, he's a saint.
* VileVillainLaughableLackey: Smee had this dynamic with Captain hook; see BumblingSidekick and MinionWithAnFInEvil.

!!Other Residents of Neverland

[[folder:The Crocodile]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Jimmy [=MacDonald=] (snapping), Creator/FrankWelker ({{WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers}}), Dee Bradley Baker (Jake and the Neverland Pirates)

Captain Hook's greatest nemesis, apart from Peter Pan. He was the crocodile who ate Hook's hand, and liked the taste so much that ever since it's been stalking Hook, hoping to eat the rest of him as well. It's easy to hear whenever he comes, though, because at one point he also ate a ticking clock -- and the sound of this clock, still ticking in the crocodile stomach, warns Hook to his presence.
* AnimalNemesis: To Captain Hook, natch.
* BreakoutCharacter: The Disney version -- not to the extent of Tinker Bell, but he's made cameos and appearances in a ''lot'' of other Disney productions.
* TheCrocIsTicking: The TropeNamer. The clock in his belly always alerts Hook to his presence.
* TheDreaded: Captain Hook fears him more than anything else.
* GenderFlip: Is female in the novel (though this is only briefly mentioned), but is implied to be male in the Disney version, with both Peter and his theme song calling him "Mr. Crocodile".
* TheGhost: In most productions of the stage play, the crocodile for practical reasons never actually appears on-stage, though he's often referred to and often heard.
* HellIsThatNoise: "Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock..."
* LighterAndSofter:
** The Disney version is a goofy and cartoony NearlyNormalAnimal that's clearly no threat to anyone but Hook -- quite a change from the scary beast from the original play and novel.
** In ''WesternAnimation/JakeAndTheNeverlandPirates'' he's become even more harmless, and seems to view the chasing-around of Hook as a fun game more than anything else.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Nameless in every version but the Disney one, where he's named "Tick-Tock".
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: TropeNamer -- his {{Leitmotif}} is the tune named, yes, "Never Smile At A Crocodile."
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: In ''The Pirate Fairy'', we see him when he was newly hatched. He is ''adorable''.
* SuperPersistentPredator: He will ''never'' stop hounding Hook until he is safely in his stomach.
* {{Troll}}: If he can't get to Hook then he at least enjoys frightening him, and even when trying to eat him he can pull some absurd moves to mess around with him in the process. Taken further in ''WesternAnimation/JakeAndTheNeverlandPirates'', where he will occasionally pass up an ideal chances to eat Hook in favor of just making a fool out of him and laughing about it.

[[folder:Tiger Lily]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Corinne Orr, Harumi Katsuta (Japanese)

The chief's daughter, often described as a princess, who is captured by the Pirates and left to drown on Marooners' Rock[[note]]or Skull Rock or the Black Castle, depending on which version you're watching[[/note]], and rescued by Peter Pan.
* ActionGirl: Depending on the adaptation. She's at her most active in ''Anime/PeterPanNoBouken''.
* AdaptationalBadass: In the '50s stage musical, after Peter rescues her, she comes back with the rest of her tribe and leads them in driving the pirates away just as they're about to kill Peter. In doing this she replaces the Never Bird, who saves Peter from drowning at this point in the book.
* BettyAndVeronica: "Veronica" (defiant and mysterious) to Wendy's "Betty" (shy and demure) for Peter's "Archie". In the end, Peter doesn't end up in a relationship for different reasons (Wendy because she realizes that she doesn't want to be with him, Tiger Lily because Peter is still [[CluelessChickMagnet clueless over romance]]).
* TheChiefsDaughter: Natch. Not only she is the daughter of the Indian Chief, she also flirts with the white Peter Pan.
* CuteMute: In the Disney adaptation. However, she did speak at least once, when she let out a brief but muffling cry for help to Peter.
* DamselInDistress: She's captured by Hook's men and has to be rescued by Peter.
* DefiantCaptive: Held her own under captivity in the Disney adaptation.
* AFateWorseThanDeath: Drowning is this for her, worse than fire or torture, since it means she won't get to go to "The Happy Hunting Grounds," her people's afterlife.
* FauxActionGirl: Despite having many brave warriors in her tribe, whenever they travel she brings up the rear, "the place of greatest danger," and is implied to take part in many of the Indians' and Lost Boys' wars before Peter saves her from Hook. [[AdaptationalBadass Some adaptations drop the "faux" part.]]
* IndianMaiden: Very calm despite Hook's threats and implied to be one of Peter Pan's many conquests.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: With John in the 2003 adaptation and Anime/PeterPanNoBouken, where her ActionGirl and {{Tsundere}} tendencies are played up, while John's scholarly leanings are emphasized.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: She's the only one who's realistically drawn compared to the other who looked like the Cleveland Indians.
* OnlySaneWoman: She's the only resident of Neverland who doesn't really get involved in any crazy shenanigans, and the only female there who doesn't have a vendetta against Wendy.
* ProudBeauty: She is extremely beautiful, coquettish (insincere flirt), and proud.
* RunawayBride: Implied in the book. She's described as very beautiful and coquettish (someone who flirts insincerely), and that there is not a brave in her tribe who would not gladly marry her, but she tends to chop the wedding alter to splinters with a hatchet.
* TheStoic: She has a stoic and proud attitude.
* ThirdOptionLoveInterest: To Wendy's Betty and Tinker Bell's Veronica for Peter.
* TheThreeFacesOfEve: The Seductress to Wendy's Wife and (book) Tinker Bell's Child.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Wendy's Girly Girl.
* {{Tsundere}}: In Anime/PeterPannoBouken, to John.
* TheUglyGuysHotDaughter: The [[ProudBeauty beautiful and seductive]] daughter of the ugly and intimidating Indian Chief.
* UndyingLoyalty: Most prominent in the Disney version, where she will not give up Peter Pan's location to Hook even when on the verge of drowning. Note that death by drowning is AFateWorseThanDeath in her culture, even worse than fire or torture, since it means she won't be able to go to her people's afterlife.
* TheVoiceless: In the Disney adaptation, save for a half-cry for help.
* YouNoTakeCandle: In the play and book. [[invoked]] [[ValuesDissonance Probably for the best Disney didn't give her any lines...]]
