!!Peter Pan
[[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.

* AmbiguousInnocence: Peter is quite cruel for being a child, laughing as John and Michael Darling nearly fell to their deaths, told Wendy her mother abandoned her, and what he did to Captain Hook.
** He's a lot less cruel in most adaptions.
* BookDumb
* BrownEyes
* ChildrenAreInnocent: And this is explored rather thoroughly in the book, both the positive and negative sides to never losing your childish innocence.
* CluelessChickMagnet
** Lampshaded in the Disney sequel.
* 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 [[RobinWilliams man]].
* DoesNotLikeShoes: In some adaptations.
* 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.
* FieryRedhead: In the Disney film.
* FisherKing: To Neverland. The island reflects his mood and sleeps when he does or when he leaves.
* 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 adaptions, 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.
* IBelieveICanFly
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* KidHero
* KidsAreCruel: Though in Peter's case it's (mostly) not intentional.
* 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}}.
* 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.
* ParentalAbandonment: Implied in one take, but may have been actually accidental.
* PointyEars
* PublicDomainCharacter: Aside from the United Kingdom.
* RedheadInGreen
* SmallNameBigEgo: Subverted since he's so popular.
* SociopathicHero
* TheTrickster
* VagueAge: The only clue in the book is that he "still has all his baby teeth."
* VerbalTic: His cockerel cry.

!!Wendy Darling
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.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Veronica to Tinkerbell's Betty; Betty to Tiger Lily's Veronica.
* ComingOfAge: If one looks at Peter Pan closely, it's really about Wendy learning that an idealized life may not be the one that she truly wants to live.
* DamselInDistress
* GrowingUpSucks: At first, but after her adventures in Never Land, she accepts and embraces it.
** 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:
-->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.
* {{Kid Hero}}ine
* {{Pajama Clad Hero}}ine: Because she left with Peter in the middle of the night, she spends most of the story in her nightgown.
* PassingTheTorch: Of sorts to her daughter Jane.
* PluckyGirl
* ProperLady
* 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, she was the definition of composed.
* TheStoryteller: The reason Peter takes her to Neverland in the first place.
* 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.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Tinker Bell's and Tiger Lily's Tomboys.
* TookALevelInBadass: In the 2003 movie.
* TrueBlueFemininity: She wears a blue nightdress and blue hair bow, emphasizing her gentle and motherly nature. Even as an adult, she is seen to wear a blue dressing gown.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears

!!Captain James Hook
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.

* ActingForTwo: A common trait of Peter Pan is that actors play both Captain Hook and Mr. Darling in the same performance.
* AnythingButThat: His greatest fear is the crocodile.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: At the end of his fight with Peter.
* BigBad
* BadBoss
* ChildHater: Though in his "dying speech", he seems to regret that "no little children love [him]."
* TheDandy: He's compared to Charles II.
* DrivenToSuicide: In the play.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: ''Only'' in the book and the play. Adaptations tend to give him a far less dignified and more humiliating exit.
* 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.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Played by a number of great actors including Hans Conried (Disney), Creator/TimCurry (Fox's Peter Pan and the Pirates), Creator/DustinHoffman (Hook), and Creator/JasonIsaacs (2003 film).
* HookHand: The master of this trope.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: Captain Hook is always dressed in his best clothes. [[spoiler:Except for in ''Peter Pan in Scarlet,'' 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 due 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.
** NotSoHarmlessVillain: Hook in the original play/novel ''seems'' like an IneffectualSympatheticVillain until he orchestrates a mass murder of the Indians.
* IWasQuiteALooker: According to ''The Pirate Fairy'', he was quite handsome when he was young and had both hands.
* LargeHam
* LaughablyEvil: The Disney version.
* ManipulativeBastard
* NiceHat
* NobleDemon: The narrator stresses that he is "not entirely unheroic".
* [[spoiler: NotQuiteDead: In ''Peter Pan in Scarlet'', 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.]]
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: He wants to be the one to defeat Peter.
* {{Pirate}}
* PirateParrot: Has one in the 2003 film.
* 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 also know Hook once served as boatswain to Blackbeard, and was the ''only'' pirate that [[TreasureIsland Long John Silver]] ever feared.
** 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]].
* 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.

!!Mr. Smee
Captain Hook's boatswain or first mate (depending on the version) and BumblingSidekick. The nicest pirate in the Jolly Roger's crew.

* AffablyEvil
* BareYourMidriff: His belly is often exposed in the Disney films.
* BumblingSidekick
* CoolOldGuy
* DependingOnTheWriter: He's either Hook's boatswain (like in the novel) or first mate (like many Disney adaptations).
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: He starts crying when Wendy sings a song about motherly love and lifts up his shirt to unveil his "Mother" tattoo.
* 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: 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.
* 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

!!Tinker Bell
Peter's fairy sidekick. She is quick to anger and jealousy, but is loyal to Peter.

* AmbiguousInnocence: "Tinker Bell was not all bad. ''Sometimes'' she was even all good."
* BettyAndVeronica: Betty to Wendy's Veronica.
* BlondesAreEvil: Evil is a strong word for her. She's more jealous than evil, but she does try hurting and killing Wendy to have Peter for herself.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: {{Trope Namer|s}}.
* ClingyJealousGirl
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: Drank poison to save Peter. Resurrected by 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]].
** And 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]].
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: 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.]]
** [[spoiler: In ''Peter Pan in Scarlet,'' 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.]]
* FairyCompanion: TropeCodifier if not TropeMaker.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: She attempts to kill Wendy a couple of times in different films, but she either survives or is saved by Peter.
* OurFairiesAreDifferent
* SpiritedYoungLady
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Wendy's Girly Girl.
* {{Tsundere}}: To Peter, specially in WesternAnimation/PeterPanAndThePirates.
* 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.
** 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. In other adaptations, such as the Anime/WorldMasterpieceTheater [[Anime/PeterPanNoBouken version]], PeterPanAndThePirates, and ''Film/{{Hook}}'', she speaks normally.
* WeAreAsMayflies: Fairies have very short lifespans, probably about a year or so.
* {{Yandere}}: Sweet cute Tinker Bell... tries to have Wendy killed ''twice'' out of jealousy.

!! The Lost Boys

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.

* 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 ''Peter Pan in Scarlet,'' 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.
* 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.
* GenderBender: Tootles in ''Peter Pan in Scarlet,'' 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 ''Peter Pan in Scarlet'', 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 ''Peter Pan in Scarlet'' -- very notably so.
* TheVoiceless: Tootles in the Disney movie.
* YesMan: ''All'' of them are this to Peter.

!! John and Michael Darling

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.
* [[spoiler:BusCrash]]: [[spoiler:Michael's fate in the authorized sequel: see "KilledOffForReal" below.]]
* ButtMonkey: John, in Anime/PeterPanNoBouken
* CompanionCube: Michael's teddy bear in the Disney version.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]: [[spoiler:''Peter Pan in Scarlet'' reveals that Michael died in WorldWarI.]]
* 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.
* {{Pajama Clad Hero}}es: 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).
* 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.


!! George and Mary Darling

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.

* 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.
* 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.
* 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.
* RedOniBlueOni: Calm, mild-mannered and soft-spoken Mary is the Blue Oni to George's blustery, temperamental Red Oni.
* ParentsAsPeople: Mostly noticeable with George, who is not a perfect father by any means, but does try.

!!Nana
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.
* 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 ''Peter Pan in Scarlet'' 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.

!! The Crocodile
Captain Hook's greatest nemesis, apart from Peter Pan. It 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 it comes, though, because at one point it also ate a ticking clock -- and the sound of this clock, still ticking in the crocodile stomach, warns Hook to its presence.

* AnimalNemesis: To Captain Hook, natch.
* BreakoutCharacter: The Disney version -- not to the extent of Tinker Bell, but it's made cameos and appearances in a ''lot'' of other Disney productions.
* GenderFlip: Is female in the novel (though this is only briefly mentioned), but male in the Disney version.
* TheGhost: In most productions of the stage play, the crocodile for practical reasons never actually appears on-stage, though it'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 ''JakeAndTheNeverlandPirates'' it'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 it's named "Tick-Tock Croc."
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: TropeNamer -- its {{Leitmotif}} is the tune named, yes, "Never Smile At A Crocodile."
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: In ''The Pirate Fairy'', we see it when it was newly hatched. It is ''adorable''.
* SuperPersistentPredator: It will ''never'' stop hounding Hook until he is safely in its stomach.
* TheCrocIsTicking: The TropeNamer. The clock in her belly always alerts Hook to her presence.


!!Jane

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.

* BigSisterInstinct: She's very protective of her little brother Danny and Tootles.
* 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.
* 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."
* 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.
* DamselInDistress: Less than twenty minutes into ''Return to Neverland'' she gets kidnapped by Hook and his pirate crew.
* DefrostingIceQueen
* {{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.
* 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.
* [[ABoyAndHisX A Girl And Her Dog]]: In the Disney version, she has 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.]]
* LittleMissBadass
* 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.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: In ''Return to Neverland'' Jane is dubbed first ever Lost Girl.
* StrongFamilyResemblance
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: For Wendy (unless you count the Disney version, who is nothing like Wendy). She gets her own SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute in her daughter Margaret.


!!Tiger Lily
* ActionGirl[=/=]FauxActionGirl: Depending on the adaptation. She's at her most active in Anime/PeterPannoBouken.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Veronica to Wendy's Betty.
* TheChiefsDaughter
* DefiantCaptive: Held her own under captivity in the Disney adaptation.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy
* ThirdOptionLoveInterest: To Wendy's Betty and Tinker Bell's Veronica for Peter.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Wendy's Girly Girl.
* {{Tsundere}}: In Anime/PeterPannoBouken, to John.
* TheVoiceless: In the Disney adaptation, save for a half-cry for help.
