[[folder: Tommy Pickles]]
The main character and unofficial leader; he is best known for his incredible bravery and the screwdriver he always carries in his diaper.

--> Voiced by: Tami Holbrook (unaired pilot), [[Creator/ElizabethDaily E.G. Daily]]

Tropes Associated With Tommy:
* TheAce: He's good at everything.
* BadassAdorable: He's only one year old, and is very courageous.
* BaldOfAwesome: Since his hair hasn't grown yet, he only has a few hairs on his head.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Dil.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: When he [[RageBreakingPoint was sick of Dil's behavior]] in the first movie, he [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech gives Dil an angry, hateful speech]] ''and almost dumps baby food on Dil for him to be abducted by the monkeys.''
* BlueIsHeroic: He is usually seen wearing a light blue t-shirt.
* CatchPhrase: "A baby's gotta do, what a baby's gotta do" and after the movie, "Hang on to your diapies, babies".
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the earliest episodes, Tommy was a regular baby with no distinguishable personality--an infant version of TheEveryman or The StandardizedLeader. Later Tommy begins to develop a stronger personality, becoming a brave Determinator who loves adventure. It can be pretty strange to see Tommy being relatively quiet and cautious in his solo adventures. E.G Daily herself even mentions that Tommy was more baby-like and tiny in the earlier episodes, but as time went by, he got alot more mature and wiser in the show's 10th anniversary special documentary.
* ClearTheirName: Tommy's done this a few times, usually when Spike's been blamed for causing trouble.
* {{Determinator}}: One of the youngest ones you'll find in fiction.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: The number of times Tommy wears shoes can be counted on one hand.
* TheHero: Since he's TheProtagonist.
* IconicItem: His trusty toy screwdriver, which he keeps even in his teen years.
* InformedJudaism: Actually averted (unlike most other examples on kids' TV, which always weakly hint that a character may or may not be Jewish). In addition to the token Hanukkah special, his family also celebrates Passover. On top of that, his maternal grandparents (Boris and Minka) are established to be Eastern European Jews (possibly Russian or Ukrainian). In both ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'', Tommy and his family follow both Judaism '''''and''''' Christianity.
* InnocentBlueEyes: As seen in the unaired pilot.
* JerkassBall:
** On occasions in earlier episodes (though not to the extent of his cousin, Angelica). Unintentionally, he could be seen as downright selfish and obnoxious, examples including "Tommy And The Secret Club", and even to an extent, "The Odd Couple". This however doesn't occur ever in later episodes.
** This was actually the source of many conflicts with Chuckie in the third season, many of which called out Tommy's usual tendency to [[TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong pressure or manipulate Chuckie into following his adventures and ideals of "fun"]] (Chuckie tears him a new one for it in "Farewell My Friend" in particular). While Tommy is still InnocentlyInsensitive in later seasons, he is often shown to be more compassionate towards Chuckie and worried about his well being.
* TheLeader: Of the babies.
* MasterOfUnlocking: Most of the time it's Tommy and his toy screwdriver that undoes any barricade the babies face.
* NiceGuy: Always looking after the others and willing to help anyone in need. Heck, there are even times where he's willing to help out his bossy older cousin Angelica.
* NiceJewishBoy: He's a good boy with a JewishMother.
* OnlyChildSyndrome: Until the [[WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie first movie]], when Dil was born.
* RageBreakingPoint: In the first movie. Tommy's patience is repeatedly pushed by Dil's selfishness throughout the film. After he saves him from the monkeys, Dil selfishly drinks all of the milk and keeps the large blanket all to himself, which leads to the blanket tearing in half and Tommy falling into a mud puddle. By this point, Tommy has had enough and gives Dil a major TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, nearly pouring mashed bananas all over Dil so the monkeys can take him away.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives an absolutely scathing one to Dil in the first movie after the latter rips their only blanket, which is what got Tommy to reach the [[RageBreakingPoint limit to his patience with Dil's behavior]]. However, he ends up regretting this.
-->'''Tommy:''' You think this is funny?! Phil and Lil was right. You're a bad, naughty baby and you're never gonna get ''any'' better! I'm ''through'' being your big brother! I don't want my "sponsatility" NO MORE! (''tosses his compass away, the monkeys notice'')
-->'''Dil:''' My monkey, my monkey! Mine!
-->'''Tommy:''' You want monkeys? Fine, I'll give you monkeys. Oh, you have a monkey mommy, a monkey daddy, and a monkey ''brother!'' My friends wanted to take you back to the "hopsicle". But ''noooooo'', I said. He didn't mean it, I said. He was only ''playin'!'' But I was wrong. Now I don't have any friends. (''throws a diaper over his shoulder, the monkeys grab it'') Dil wants monkeys, and monkeys want the manners. (''takes out the mashed bananas'') Ohhh, '''''EVERYBODY GETS WHAT THEY WANT!'''''
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Chuckie's blue.
* SanitySlippage: In the first movie during his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Dil.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Manly Man to Chuckie's Sensitive Guy.
* VocalEvolution: In Season 1, Tommy had a very raspy, quiet voice, but it changed a bit in Season 2 and again in Season 4, when it became louder. Also, he had a different voice actress in the pilot, who sounded downright feminine.

[[folder: Chuckie Finster]]
In addition to his uncontrollable red hair, big glasses and bucked teeth, Chuckie is easily distinguished from his friends by his dislike of adventure and irrational fear of particular objects, most notably the "guy on the oatmeal box" (the Quaker Oats logo).

--> Voiced by: Creator/ChristineCavanaugh (first seven seasons, some episodes of season eight, ''WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie'', ''WesternAnimation/RugratsInParis''), Creator/NancyCartwright (the rest of season eight and onward)

Tropes Associated With Chuckie:
* {{Adorkable}}: Gawky, neurotic, jumpy, and sweet-natured. And bespectacled.
* ArtEvolution: Chuckie looks a bit different in Season 1, owing to EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference. He has fewer strands on his hair, his nose has a slightly different shape, and his head shape is more boxy. His design was refined in Season 2.
* BadassNormal: An interesting variation. When one cartoon had the babies think Chuckie was a super hero to get back his inflatable globe from Angelica, he was told his cape was the source of his powers. He ends up losing the cape and ''still'' beating Angelica, knocking her over. He's shocked he did it, too.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Chuckie's a coward, through and through. However, push the kid too far and he'll man up to deal with the problem at hand, and he'll always come through for his friends when they need it.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards all of the gang. Once his father and Kira get married, he develops this for Kimi, especially in their teenage years.
* BigNo: His first word in ''Rugrats In Paris''.
* BlackBeadEyes: Whenever he's seen without his glasses, his eyes are drawn this way.
* BlindWithoutEm: Cannot see well without his glasses.
* BlueIsHeroic: He is usually seen wearing a light blue t-shirt with a yellow and red Saturn on it.
* ButtMonkey: ''Very'' often due to his lack of confidence, though not to Angelica's extent.
* CatchPhrase:
** "IDontThinkThatsSuchAGoodIdea..."
** "We're doomed! Doomed, I tell ya!"
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the first season, he could be quite argumentative and rude to the other babies, but thankfully it was toned down in later seasons.
* ChickMagnet: He's actually quite popular with the ladies, having "[[PuppyLove relationships]]" with Megan, in Season 3, Emma in Season 5, and having to pretend to be married to Lil in Season 6. It's even theorized among fans that the reason why Angelica torments him so much is because she has a secret crush on him, and they get plenty of episodes with each other throughout the series. The All Growed Up special episode is about his crush on a girl in middle school.
* CompanionCube: His stuffed bear Wawa, a TragicKeepsake from his deceased mother.
* CowardlyLion: He will get over his cowardice if his friends are in danger.
* CowardlySidekick: In contrast to the fearless Tommy.
* DeadpanSnarker: This line exemplifies it. When Phil and Lil show up as Hansel and Gretel in Chuckie's Cinderella fantasy.
--> '''Phil''': I'm Hansel and she's Gretel.
--> '''Lil''': Yah. And we're losted.
--> '''Chuckie''': Well you're even more losted than ya think. Cus you're in the wrong story.
* DidntWantAnAdventure: He's usually the first one to object to any of Tommy's adventures, but he tags along anyways.
* DirtyCoward: Usually averted but played straight in "Dust Bunnies". Upon hearing that Tommy was attacked by a "dust bunny", he runs off afraid without a second thought. Subverted as he regrets it and comes through in the end.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: This kid goes through ''a lot'' without his MissingMom. By the time of the second film, he finally gains a mother he always wanted.
* {{Flanderization}}: Originally, Chuckie was the voice of reason among his friends, being the only one with any idea/worry of how dangerous many of the thing they were doing were. Starting with the second season, Chuckie's sense of caution was exaggerated to the point where he is so cowardly that he's scared of the guy on the oatmeal box. Then things got worse when his voice actress was replaced...
* {{Foil}}:
** To Tommy. While Tommy is rather bold and adventurous, Chuckie tends to worry that they're in a bad situation and points out that Tommy's plans could result in trouble.
** Compared to his stepsister Kimi, she is also more bold and energetic than he is. In particular, she's enthusiastic about riding a Reptar mecha while Chuckie was only doing so in order to warn his father that Coco was using him.
* TheHeart: He's usually the one that keeps the babies together.
* TheLancer: Often acts as the cowardly contrast to the courageous Tommy.
* LovableCoward: Probably his defining characteristic.
* MissingMom: The Mother's Day episode heavily implied that [[spoiler:his mother died a few months -- maybe less than that -- after he was born.]]
* MoralityChain: Episodes like "Rebel Without a Teddy Bear", "The Gold Rush" and "Chuckie's Wonderful Life" strongly hint that Chuckie is this to the other babies.
* NeatFreak: In one episode, after learning about germs, he becomes this.
* NiceGuy: Becomes this after the first season.
* OlderSidekick: He's Tommy's sidekick, but is a year older than him.
* OnlyChildSyndrome: Until the [[WesternAnimation/RugratsInParis second movie]], when his father remarried and he got a stepsister.
* PhraseCatcher: [[HypocriticalHumor "Aw, quit being a baby!"]]
* PottyEmergency: Since he is very young, he had a few Downplayed instances of this in Chuckie vs the Potty, A Dose of Dil, and Cuffed. He also had a pretty severe one in Potty Training Spike.
* PottyFailure: He had this once in Chuckie vs The Potty and once in Accidents Happen.
* RedheadsAreUncool:
** He is danger prone, cowardly, wore glasses that would break from time to time, had allergies and was often picked on by other kids. So much so that there were entire episodes devoted to him having an operation that temporarily cleared his nose, him trying to dye his hair black to fit in with the rest of the kids, and his other quirks.
** Sometimes averted: [[HeroesWantRedheads he's actually shown to be quite popular with the ladies in certain episodes (such as "Cradle Attraction").]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Tommy's red.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl The Savvy Guy to Kimi's Energetic Girl.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Sensitive Guy to Tommy's Manly Man.
* TheSmartGuy: Chuckie is a bit more smart compared to the other babies.
* TheSouthpaw: Chuckie is shown to be left-handed.
* SurvivalMantra: "I'm a big brave dog, I'm a big brave dog..."
* TeamMom: At times, he tries to keep the group together. Further shown at the end of "What's Your Line", when he utilizes what he's learned from his own father to comfort Dil when he cries.
* YouJustHadToSayIt: He has a habit of giving his friends ideas, which he didn't mean to, and which ends with him going along unwillingly.
** In "Stu Gets a Job", after accidentally giving Tommy an idea to prevent his dad from going to work, he said "When am I ever gonna learn to keep my big mouth shut?"
** In "Reptar On Ice", Tommy believes Reptar is dead, but Chuckie believes he's just hiding. This cheers Tommy enough to have them go looking for him. Chuckie groans "I did it again."
** In another episode, his friends look at him after saying something, he sighs and says "I'll get the screwdriver."
** In "Let Them Eat Cake," he lampshades the whole thing. Tommy wants to go after the huge cake, and rather than talk him out of it, Chuckie acknowledges that Tommy won't listen to him and come up with "a whole bunch of crazy reasons why we gotta do it," so why not just skip the middleman this time and go along with it?
** In "Tricycle Thief", Angelica was accused of stealing Susie's bike as payback for her laughing when Angelica fell into the mud the previous day. Angelica claims her innocence and wouldn't even bother doing so just for spite, then Chuckie blurted out that he overheard Angelica said something. When the babies asked what it was, he tried to keep quiet only to reluctantly give in, and it only seemed to confirm Angelica's guilt.
* YouthfulFreckles: ChewToy and {{adorkable}} redhead.

[[folder: Phil and Lil [=DeVille=]]]
HalfIdenticalTwins who are alike in every possible way, and even dressed to match. They represent the stage of infancy where babies are forever curious and try to eat and drink anything they can reach. Best known for their love of filth.

--> Voiced by: Creator/KathSoucie (both)

Tropes Associated With Phil and Lil:
* BigEater: They love eating. They especially like mud.
* TheBigGuy: Phil is the toughest of the babies and the most hands-on.
* TheChick: Lil is the lone girl of the four main babies until Kimi.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Worms, insects, boogers, toilet water-- ''anything'' is fair game.
* DeadpanSnarker: To a certain extent, though especially Phil.
* DirtyCoward: In "Farewell My Friend" they ditch Tommy at one point.
* DirtyKid: After Tommy gets pantsed by Dil in the movie, Lil looks excited by it.
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: The twins started off as the same character split in two, but later in the series Phil became a borderline DeadpanSnarker and AudienceSurrogate, being the character that said what the audience was thinking. Lil would also become the more adventurous of the pair, which is TruthInTelevision since she's the oldest.
* FirstNameUltimatum: When they argue, they usually address each other by their full first names (Phillip and Lillian).
* HalfIdenticalTwins: The only physical difference between them is that Lil has free-hanging earlobes, something minor enough that most people, including their parents, don't notice.
* HatesBaths: To the point where Lil considers the word "bath" a bad word.
* IdenticalTwinIDTag: The most obvious way of telling them apart is Lil's bow, which they will sometimes use to pull off a TwinSwitch. Lil also wears a diaper under her overalls, while Phil wears shorts. In "Twins Pique" Lil gives herself pigtails, and Phil messes up his hair so they can be told apart.
* IncestSubtext: By way of ChildrenAreInnocent. In "Kid TV" the two of them stage a scene where they're lovers in a SoapOpera, they go to the prom together in "Junior Prom", and they have odd reactions at seeing each other naked in "Naked Tommy". Also in "Cradle Attraction" when the gang finds out that Megan picks on Chuckie because she likes him, Lil shoves Phil and says "it's because I like you" and they both giggle.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: They could be pretty mean at times, but nowhere near the extent of Angelica. In "Weaning Tommy", Tommy (who's going through withdrawal after his parents were told by their dentist to get Tommy off his bottle) tells the twins of his plight, and their answer is "Sorry, Tommy. Wish we could help" and then continue drinking their bottles right in front of him. The worst example has to be in the first movie where they let the monkeys take Dil. Even Chuckie (who at this point has no love for Dil either) couldn't believe it. But nonetheless, the two share a strong bond with each other and care deeply about their friends.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: An interesting case for Lil. In ''WesternAnimation/RugratsGoWild'', Lil catches sight of an animal eating a smaller one and freaks out, realizes what she's been doing all of this time and swears off worms and mud.
* NightmareFetishist: Very young versions. The "fetishist" part is downplayed as there is nothing sexual about their interest in what most would be freaked out by.
* ThePigPen: Both of them love getting messy.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Lil has pink shoes, and has a pink bow in her hair, while Phil has blue shoes and blue pants. However they both have pink shirts.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Lil is color-coded with her pink bow and shoes.
* SiblingRivalry: They both argue frequently.
* SingleMindedTwins: They tend to be on the same page, though they occasionally argue.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Phil wears pants, while Lil wears a dress and has a bow on her head.
* ThoseTwoGuys: They are twins, after all.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Bugs, though Lil swears off them in ''Rugrats Go Wild''.
* ThemeTwinNaming: Both names rhyming with "ill".
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Lil loves playing in the mud and eating worms, but also plays with dolls and gets excited when she thinks she's playing a princess in Angelica's ballet performance.
* VocalEvolution: Over the course of the series Phil's voice became less feminine and more scratchy, whilst Lil's voice became higher during the Kimi era episodes.

[[folder: Angelica Pickles]]
A Large Ham and bossy, Angelica is Tommy's cousin and serves as the main antagonist of the series. She hates Tommy and the other "stupid babies" and lives to make them miserable whenever they're in the same place.

--> Voiced by: Cheryl Chase

Tropes Associated With Angelica:
* AntiRoleModel: She's pretty much the embodiment of what young children ''shouldn't'' act like.
* AttentionWhore: She gets enraged when people give more attention to the babies than to her.
* {{Badbutt}}: She's the closest thing to a villain that the show has.
* BelievingTheirOwnLies: She usually torments the younger babies by lying to them about some mundane thing to make it seem terrifying. Correspondingly, her [[LaserGuidedKarma comeuppance]] often involves circumstances making her think she was right:
** After tricking Chuckie into thinking a disease she made up is turning him into a rhinoceros, a horn-shaped bump on her head, along with gray-colored scabs on her legs, leads her to think that ''she'' has contracted "rhinoceritis".
** After all the babies come down with chicken pox, Angelica convinces them that they'll all turn into actual chickens. By the end of the episode, she herself has contracted the pox, and when an egg falls into her car seat, she freaks out and believes that she's turning into a chicken herself.
** She tried to convince the babies that the sky is falling, and ends up believing it herself after a stray tennis ball falls on her head.
** Stu and Didi give Tommy's old toys to Dil, and Angelica tells Tommy that once his parents give all of his old stuff to Dil, he'll disappear. In the end, Susie explains that a person doesn't disappear from giving away hand-me-downs. Angelica expresses her thankfulness on being an only child, and thus gets to keep all of her stuff, but then her dad comes by and tells her that he and Charlotte have decided to give all of her old stuff to Tommy. This causes Angelica to scream in fear that ''she'll'' disappear once her parents give all of her old stuff to Tommy.
** After an incident where Tommy accidentally loses one of his toys down the drain, Angelica scares Tommy and Chuckie by saying they could suffer the same fate. Throughout the episode they try to find ways to get out of it, which includes flushing anything bath time related down the toilet. Ironically, she accidentally flushes her own doll, Cynthia, down the toilet. The plumber recovers it, but the doll is ruined.
-->'''Angelica''' (''sobbing''): It's true! It's true! You can get sucked down the drain!
* BerserkButton: Whatever you do, don't steal Cynthia from Angelica. Not even karma will protect you from her wrath.
* BigBad: She's always the one causing trouble for the main characters, and as such she's the closest thing to a main antagonist. When it's not her, it's usually her equally bratty crush, Timmy [=McNulty=].
* BigSisterInstinct: Despite how much she torments the babies, she goes ballistic when anyone besides her does this. Lampshaded in Rugrats in Paris:
-->"Listen lady! Nobody messes with my dumb babies except me!"
* BigEater: Usually when desserts (most often with cookies) are involved, to the point where she'll eat ''any'' dessert you give to her unless it's flan.
* BirthdayHater: Due to the [[GrowingUpSucks fear of the implications of growing up]], Angelica behaves this way during her third ([[AgelessBirthdayEpisode or fourth?]]) birthday. In the end, she regrets it when she realizes that, when growing up, she can eat candy with bigger teeth than the babies'.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She pulls a sweet girl facade in front of the adults while showing her nasty side to the babies.
* BrattyHalfPint: She often whines when she doesn't get her way.
* TheBully: She frequently picks on the babies.
* ButtMonkey: If you can believe this, Angelica, despite being the antagonist, gets her comeuppance a lot (eg: sitting in time out and pizza falling on her hair, causing her to cry as she hates the stress of having her hair washed), but sometimes, she can be the show's butt monkey, even when she isn't the antagonist!
* CatchPhrase:
** "You dumb babies!"
** "Can you believe it, Cynthia?"
** [[SayMyName "CYNTHIAAAAA!"]]
** "Hmph."
* CharacterDevelopment: At the start, Angelica was a total {{Jerkass}} that acted nice in front of the adults, but had strong hate for the babies and she somewhat mocked people behind their back (Graham Canyon is a great example of this, as when Drew tells Angelica to have a good time, after Angelica's polite response, she sticks her tongue out at Drew). In later seasons (mostly after season 3 and the movie), she grows to like them and becomes a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, whereas she is still mischievous, but there's a nicer tone to it.
* ChildHater: [[BoomerangBigot Despite being a child herself]], she is often mean to the babies and isn't very nice to people her own age either.
* ClashingCousins: A one-sided version with Tommy and Dil. Angelica dislikes them and thinks they're "dumb babies". By ''All Grown Up'' it's slightly more mutual on Tommy's part and he's grown enough to realize Angelica's brattiness. Though they bicker constantly, it is shown that Angelica does really like Tommy deep down.
* CompanionCube: She often treats her Cynthia doll as if it were a living person.
* CuteButCacophonic: She's three years old and has NoIndoorVoice.
* DaddysGirl: Though her parents both love her, she appears closer to Drew, possibly because he's around more than Charlotte. Drew is also more of a softy when it comes to attempts at disciplining his daughter.
* DeadpanSnarker: Often makes remarks towards the babies about their ignorance of how the world works due to being very young, naive, and inexperienced.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: Acts sweet and nice when grownups are around to try and manipulate them.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Is she a JerkassWoobie (and maybe a {{Tsundere}} as well) or a flat out vile little brat whom dangerously borders on being a VillainProtagonist? It depends on how pleasant the writers are feeling about her at the time. Still happens in ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' but to a much smaller extent.
* DevilInPlainSight: The adults are usually unaware of how bratty and mean she is, though occasionally she did get caught.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: She often gets in trouble because she's so focused on being mean to the babies that she doesn't stop and think about how what she's doing might reflect back on her. Justified as she's only three.
* TheDreaded: All of the other kids (except Susie and Kimi) are scared of her.
* EnfantTerrible: More bratty than evil, but still has her moments.
* EvenBadWomenLoveTheirMamas: It is shown several times that she loves her parents even when they're not spoiling her rotten.
* EvenEvilHasStandards:
** In "Tricycle Thief."
--> '''Angelica:''' I may be mean, and I may be a bully, but [[PunctuatedForEmphasis I'M NO TRICYCLE THIEF!]] [[spoiler: She's not.]]
** She usually doesn't say rude things about Chuckie's MissingMom either.
*** Whenever Chuckie's thinking about his MissingMom, she will ''not'' torment him.
** She loves to torment the babies and do mean things to them, but if anyone ''else'' does things (like try to ''hurt'' them), she does ''not'' tolerate it.
** In "Rugrats in Paris" when Angelica helps Coco LaBouche trick Chaz into marrying her, even she knew that was a horrible thing to do and actually genuinely felt bad.
* EvilCounterpart: To Susie. While Susie is sweet and friendly, Angelica is bratty and selfish. This is reflected when Susie attempts to sing a song during a baby shower during the Rugrats Movie and Angelica keeps interrupting.
* EvilIsPetty: She can sometimes fall into this. Like when she convinced Tommy, Phil and Lil that Chuckie was an alien [[ItMakesSenseInContext just so she could have the playhouse to herself]].
* FluffyTheTerrible: Not just her RightHandCat...
* GirlishPigtails: And purple bows to go with the dress.
* HaughtyHmph: Being the spoiled little brat she is, there's hardly an episode that goes by that she doesn't do one of these.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: She more or less treats the other babies like crap and has no qualms with freaking them out with random urban legends or stories, mostly to get something she wants. However, she ends up being a team player if something worse threatens them.
* HoistByHerOwnPetard: Many of Angelica's punishments are brought about by her inability to quit while she was ahead. For instance, in "The Trial", her desire to pin the blame on one of the babies for breaking Tommy's favorite clown lamp leads to her gloating her guilt to the babies... and in front of Didi and Betty.
* HypocriticalHeartwarming: "Nobody messes with my dumb babies 'cept me!"
* HypocriticalHumor: Angelica seems rather insecure about being so close in age to the younger Rugrats--she's always referring to them as "just babies" and to herself as an adult, even though Dil (who's three years younger than Angelica) is the only Rugrats who's technically "just a baby." Angelica and Susie are both only a year older than Chuckie and two years older than Tommy, Kimi and the twins.
* InkSuitActor: Angelica is essentially a cartoon version of Cheryl Chase ([[MeanCharacterNiceActor her voice actress, except Cheryl is fairly nice in real life]]) in many aspects, such as her appearance and some of her interests.
* IronicName: She usually acts angelic when she's around adults so they seldom catch on to her true bratty nature.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Most of the time, she'll only act on her own selfishness.
* {{Jerkass}}: She plays this trope straight, from childhood to the ''All Grown Up!'' episodes. She is really willing to manipulate the other characters to get what she wants.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She has alot of nice moments—such as when she admits she'll miss Tommy when he almost moves away, or apologizing to Suzie via a hand-made card. In the sequel she TookALevelInKindness.
* KarmaHoudini: Angelica manages to pull one in "Barbecue Story," where she deliberately throws Tommy's ball over a fence without any comeuppance. Presumably, karma wasn't paying attention that time. Angelica was in fact originally conceived as a KarmaHoudini to teach the audience sometimes life won't be fair. Allegedly the creators loathed Barbecue Story, which followed the original direction, and while she has mild cases of getting away afterwards, most of her truly heinous acts are met with karma.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: A meta-example. Angelica was initially intended by the creators to be a permanent KarmaHoudini to teach children that sometimes life isn't fair. However, [[CreatorsPest the creators themselves]] eventually got sick of Angelica's brattiness, so they decided to start having her face punishment.
* TheLancer: Whenever [[CowardlySidekick Chuckie]] isn't filling this role.
* LargeHam: She often likes to see herself as quite the little performer lets just say.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Her title in this show could very much be "karma's personal punching bag"; in the event she does something that could be considered even vaguely unpleasant, karma is sure to be there to take her down a peg or two.
* LonelyRichKid: Despite being well-meaning, her parents are pretty clueless, and sometimes downright negligent, when it comes to raising her.
* NeverMyFault: Angelica gets sent to day camp and blames her '''doll''', Cynthia, for suggesting it.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Quite a lot of examples can be found on [[NightmareFuel/{{Rugrats}} the Rugrats Nightmare Fuel page]].
* NoMatterHowMuchIBeg: When she tries to give up cookies in the episode "No More Cookies", she asks the babies to keep her from getting any and to never give in regardless of how much she demands a cookie.
* NoIndoorVoice: Angelica is constantly yelling to get what she wants.
* NotMeThisTime: In "The Tricycle Thief", Suzie blames Angelica for stealing her new tricycle when hers is missing and Angelica shows up with an identical one. Angelica says that it was hers and that her red-painted hands, which she would have gotten if she stole the trike from Suzie's garage, were from finger-painting. Turns out that despite the evidence stacked against her, she was completely ''innocent''.
* OnlyChildSyndrome: Unlike Tommy and Chuckie, she actually stayed an only child throughout the show's run. She did come close to having a sibling on an episode where Charlotte (her mom) thinks she's pregnant and Angelica thinks that her parents will outright neglect her once the baby is born, but by the end, Charlotte reveals to Angelica that the doctor told her that she's not pregnant.
* RichBitch: It is implied that Angelica's family is better off than most of the other characters', especially given that both of her parents are business executives. However, Chaz and Chuckie briefly become richer than her family in "Chuckie is Rich," until Drew makes Chaz invest all of his money in a company which fails (possibly out of envy).
* ShipTease: Some episodes show her expressing a {{Tsundere}}-ish crush on Timmy [=McNulty=] (the grandson of one of Lou's rivals and if possible an even ''bigger'' brat than Angelica).
* SpoiledBrat: To the point where even her ''parents'' recognize this even as they spoil her! But to their credit, they've tried many times to correct it.
--> '''Drew:''' Angelica, if you don't eat your broccoli, then you're not going to get seconds on dessert!
--> '''Angelica:''' BUT THAT'S NOT FAIR!
* SweetTooth: She would sometimes [[BigEater eat too many sweets to where she would get sick.]] In fact, some of her schemes involve something relating to sweets. Especially in "Partners In Crime", where Didi bakes a dozen cupcakes, and Angelica had already eaten all but two. Then she goes on stealing a bowl of cookies and a cake for someone's 100th birthday.
* TinyTyrannicalGirl: Although she seems like a big bully rather than tiny, since she's three and the protagonists are babies.
* TokenEvilTeammate: She serves as the primary antagonist most of the time. Even when she's not being mean to the babies, she tends to be the meanest of the main characters.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Susie's Tomboy.
* TooDumbToLive: Shows up on occasion, like the end of "The Trial", where she admits to breaking Tommy's clown lamp and gloats about it because the babies can't say anything, ''completely'' forgetting about the fact that Didi and Betty can hear her in the next room.
* TookALevelInKindness: Takes a mild one after Season 1, and a bigger one after Season 3. She still has lots of KickTheDog moments in later seasons and even if she's not as consistantly "evil" in depiction as she was early on, she's still an obnoxious and selfish bully on occasions. DependingOnTheWriter comes a lot into play.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Angelica loves cookies. It is even revealed in "No More Cookies" that "cookie" was her first word.
* {{Tsundere}}: Some of her "nicer" stories do occasionally give her these kind of vibes as well.
* VillainousGlutton: She is shown as this in the episode "Chuckie's Wonderful Life", Chuckie being shown that if he was never born, Angelica would have manipulated her uncle and aunt into abandoning Tommy and endlessly making junk food for her to eat.
* VitriolicBestFriends: To Susie, especially in the later seasons--given her bossy personality, it is sometimes implied that Susie may be her ''only'' real friend outside of the babies.
* VocalEvolution: Angelica's voice was always Cheryl Chase's own voice tweaked a little bit, but in Seasons 1-6, it was more noticeable that it was Cheryl's own speaking voice. In the Kimi era, her voice gets slightly higher. However in the Tales from the Crib DVD movies, her voice reverts back to Cheryl's and sounds noticeably more like Cheryl than she did in the show's entire run.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Has pulled this a few times, with mixed results. She also taught Tommy to do it in "Attention Please," though she called it "acting."
* TheUnfavorite: Subverted. Her parents love her more than she realizes. She was worried that this would happen when she got a little sibling.

[[folder: Susie Carmichael]]
Susie moved across the street from Tommy early on in the series. A multi-talented, brave, and humble little girl, she served as the opposite of Angelica and often acted as TheRival to her.

--> Voiced by: Creator/CreeSummer

Tropes Associated With Susie:
* TheAce: She is WiseBeyondTheirYears and has many talents.
* AffirmativeActionGirl: Originally added to the cast when the creators noticed that there were too many white, male characters. Luckily, Susie manages to avoid being a [[TokenMinority token]] through her CoolBigSis persona.
* BlackBestFriend: Initially to Tommy and later on to Angelica.
* BloodKnight: Turns into a variation of this in "The Tricycle Thief", going to great lengths to prove Angelica stole her trike and paint her as something of a monster who'd keep stealing so she'd get what she wants.
* BrainyBrunette: Has dark brown hair and is quite the prodigy with knowledge about reproduction and is fluent in French.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In her initial appearances [[SatelliteCharacter she interacted mainly with Tommy]], and was kind of a drama queen and a crybaby, sharing Tommy's naivete and ineptness to the world around her. Not long after that, Susie and Angelica met and she became mostly defined by being the Anti'-Angelica; mellow, intelligent and mature (at least for her young age).
* ChildProdigy: At age three, she is already multilingual.
* CoolBigSis: Acts like this to Tommy and the other babies. Ironically, Susie herself is the youngest of four children, and Alisa, despite having a valley-girl persona to a certain extent, is sort of a Cool Big Sis to Susie.
* CunningLinguist: It's revealed that she knows ten languages.
* {{Foil}}: While Angelica is a mean girl who doesn't treat the babies too well, Susie is rather sweet and caring. Furthermore, she's black and brunette while Angelica is white and blonde.
* GirlishPigtails: She has her black hair in braids.
* GoodCounterpart: To Angelica. If Angelica was The BigBad, Susie would be The BigGood.
* LethalChef: One episode has her baking treats for the babies, only for them to hate how they taste.
* NiceGirl: She's a sweet and compassionate little girl who basically serves as a nice foil to Angelica.
* OnlySaneWoman: Usually.
* OutOfFocus: Became less prominent as the series progressed, playing minor roles in the first two movies and making less appearances staring in in Season 8.
* TheRival: To Angelica. Susie was soon made as a rival to Angelica, and was shown to be better than her in many things ("Susie vs. Angelica").
* SixthRanger: At first, but by the time Kimi was introduced, she became more or less TheMentor.
* TeamMom: Acts as a big sister to the babies.
* TokenMinority: The only black one of the kids.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Angelica's Girly Girl.
* VitriolicBestFriends: With Angelica.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She's very smart and mature for her age.
* XMustNotWin: While mostly a GoodCounterpart to Angelica, Susie has been shown to be very rivalistic to her at times. Comes to an extreme in "Tricycle Thief" [[NotMeThisTime where she jumps to the immediate conclusion she stole her trike]].

[[folder: Dil Pickles]]
Tommy's little brother, who was born in TheMovie. Unlike the others, he can't talk, so he's a baby even to the other babies. As a newborn, most of his time is spent sitting around and drooling.

--> Voiced by: Creator/TaraStrong

Tropes Associated With Dil:
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Tommy felt this way about him in the first movie, but now cares for him.
* TheBabyOfTheBunch: Literally. Even though everyone else in the group is a baby, he's the youngest of them.
* BigBrotherWorship: A downplayed example given that he's a baby among babies, but the fact that he dreams of Tommy when his mom sings "Beautiful Dreamer" is telling.
* CatchPhrase:
** "POOPIE!"
** "Mine!"
* CousinOliver: Sums up the page quote quite nicely. For the most part, even in episodes where he's a major focus, he ends up feeling more like a living plot device than anything else.
* CuteButCacophonic: When he cries, it's a very good example of how grating Creator/TaraStrong can make her voice when she has to.
* EmbarrassingNickname: He calls Angelica "Yucky", and Chuckie "Ducky" or "Chubby".
* FearlessInfant: In "Acorn Nuts And Diapey Butts", [[ItMakesSenseInContext while falling from a lethal height due to being dropped by a Reptar float in a parade,]] he is not only shown to be unafraid, but ''actually enjoying it and laughing.''
* GenerationXerox: Dil's initial interactions with his older brother Tommy mirrors that of Stu and Drew Pickles, who did not get along as babies but gradually warmed up to each other. However, while Stu and Drew Pickles still argue with each other on occasion, Dil gets along well with his brother Tommy.
* HatesBaths: Due to his fear of water, he cries whenever having to bathe.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Zigzagged. He's younger and thus less developed than the other babies, but like them, he's far more developed than a real infant his age would be. That being the case, he's at least somewhat aware that his selfishness has consequences, and shapes up towards the end of the movie.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He may be selfish and naughty at times but he's still a nice baby.
* LastMinuteBabyNaming: Stu and Didi originally assumed that he was going to be a girl, and planned on naming him after Stu's late mother, Trixie, but end up naming him after Didi's cousin, Dylan.
* LivingProp: Semi-justified, considering that he's a baby who can't say a whole lot and doesn't do much.
* TheMillstone: In the first movie.
* TheNicknamer: Partially because he's so young and has no teeth, Dil has a nickname for almost all the babies he interacts with.
* PunnyName: Dill is a type of pickle. This pun is actually what convinced Stu and Didi to name him Dylan.
* TheSpeechless: He doesn't really say anything due to being the youngest of the babies. Subverted as he also can say short words such as "Yucky", "Tommy", "Poopy", and others.
* SpoiledBrat: He is for two thirds of the movie, and still can be on occasion. It's understandable, since like many children his age, Dil is too young to understand the concept of sharing.
* TagalongKid: He usually tags along on the gang's adventures. Not that he always is useful because of his young age.
* TookALevelInKindness: He begins the first movie acting selfish and rude but after Tommy's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to him, he becomes a better boy.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He's afraid of water.

[[folder: Kimi Watanabe Finster]]
First appearing in the second movie, Kimi is an adventurous girl whose mother married Chuckie's father, making her his step-sister.

--> Voiced by: Dionne Quan

Tropes Associated With Kimi:
* TheAce: Like Tommy, she is good at many things.
* BrokenPedestal: Kimi feels this way about Angelica when she's at her worst.
* CheerfulChild: Usually is pretty happy about stuff.
* CompanionCube: Superthing.
* DistaffCounterpart: Was conceived as being a female Tommy. It's even lampshaded by Chuckie.
* GenkiGirl: Adventurous and free-spirited.
* GirlishPigtails: Has three of them, in fact.
* HairColorDissonance: Does Kimi have black hair or [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair purple]]?
* MeaningfulName: Her real name, Kimiko, means "child without equal", among "empress/noble child".
* NiceShoes: Who knew they made cowboy boots for babies?
* NoAccountingForTaste: Non-romantic example; unlike the others, Kimi actually ''likes'' Angelica.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Seemingly in "Finsterella" as shown and mentioned by Chuckie.
* PluckyGirl: She's extremely fearless. In her first appearance, Chuckie even compares her to Tommy.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl The Energetic Girl to Chuckie's Savvy Guy.
* SixthRanger: Joined the babies after the Rugrats in Paris movie.

[[folder: Chaz Finster]]

Chuckie's equally cowardly father. Was revealed to be a widower on the Mother's Day special episode, but got remarried in the second ''Rugrats'' movie.
--> Voice by: Creator/MichaelBell

Tropes Associated With Chaz:

* AFoolAndHisNewMoneyAreSoonParted: Chaz wins a 10 million dollar lottery but loses almost all of it after a failed business investment with Drew.
* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: When he wins the lottery he becomes noticeably snobbish and arrogant, irritating Stu and Didi.
* {{Adorkable}}: He's shy, awkward, nervous, and wears glasses.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: Aside from acting similarly to [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Mort Goldman]], Chas says "oy gevalt" in "Home Movies" and even his claim that "we're not really Jewish, actually we're not really anything" in "Passover" does not rule the possibility out.
* ArtEvolution: During the first season Chaz' clothes had a different color and his hair was darker. However, this was changed during the second season.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's easily intimidated and cowardly, but it's ''not'' smart to push him too far. Also if Chuckie is in danger you're in his way, ''hoo boy'', ''watch out!''
** Not to mention he spitted out a very convincing [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech reason-you-suck speech]] to Stu, Didi, Betty, and Howard in ''Family Feud''.
* BumblingDad: He is a kind, well-meaning man, but he is also clumsy, awkward, absent-minded, and frequently a HorribleJudgeOfCharacter.
* ButtMonkey: Like father, like son.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Like his son, he clearly misses his late wife. But thanks to Paris, he has a family of four with Kira and Kimi within his household.
* GoodParents: Despite being bumbling, there's no doubt he loves Chuckie more than anything else. Later to Kimi.
* HappilyMarried: To Kira. In the spin off set 10 years later, they're still going strong.
** He was also this with Melinda, his first wife (and Chuckie's mother). In "Mother's Day," it's shown that her death [[SoapOperaDisease from a terminal illness]] affected him greatly, to the point that he attempted to hide her old belongings from Chuckie (and himself) out of grief. Luckily, by the end of the episode, [[CharacterDevelopment he begins sharing his memories of her with Chuckie]].
* TheHeart: Like his son, he helps hold the parents together, such as in "Family Feud", as the Pickles and [=DeVille=]s were bickering.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Best shown in the second movie when he almost marries a ChildHater who terrified Chuckie.
* JerkassBall: Happens in the episode "Chuckie Is Rich." After winning 10 million dollars in a contest, Chaz becomes a smug, superficial jerk. Much to the annoyance of Stu and the other adults. He gets over himself when he [[spoiler: loses all his money to a bad investment.]]
* JerkassRealization: When he finally sees how horrible Coco is, he's ashamed for getting so caught up in the romance of Paris, he didn't realize who he was trying to romance.
* NiceGuy: You can see where Chuckie got it from.
* NerdGlasses: Square ones.
* PapaWolf: Very protective of Chuckie and Kimi, [[ItMakesSenseInContext he even onetime threw out a huge muscular guy out his car just to retrieve Chuckie out of a car wash]].
* ParentWithNewParamour: The whole premise of ''Film/RugratsInParis'' is how Chaz finds a new woman to fill the void left behind with the passing of Melinda.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Does this from time to time, and it sounds quite funny, but not as funny as when Stu does it.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The sensitive (alongside Howard) to Stu and Drew's macho.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He greatly resembles his son Chuckie.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Often paired with Howard as this in the later seasons.
* UglyGuyHotWife: He's kind of a geek while Kira is attractive. Even so, they're very much attracted to each other.
** His first wife, Melinda, was also kinda attractive.
* WhatTheHellHero: In the episode "Family Feud", Chaz flips out in anger when the babies run off, tired of their parents' petty arguments, and they do nothing but keep arguing. This invokes many a MyGodWhatHaveIDone

[[folder: Kira Finster]]
She is the mother of Kimi and step-mother of Chuckie. The (2nd) wife of Chaz.

--> Voice by: Julia Kato

Tropes Associated With Kira:

* BerserkButton: It's not a good idea to try snatch a dress on sale that she saw first either. One lady during a baby sale at the mall learned this the hard way. Didi was also quite shocked.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She went nuclear when a woman tried to take a dress that Kira saw first.
* TheDeterminator: If she sees a dress she wants for Kimi during a clothing sale, she ''will'' get it.
* DotingParent: To Kimi and later Chuckie.
* {{Foil}}: In the movie, she serves as this for Coco. Unlike Coco, she in fact loves children and objects to Coco attempting to take away his teddy bear, giving it back to him instead of destroying it like she asked, as well as when she realizes that Coco is simply marrying Chaz so that she could get a promotion, attempting to stop the wedding in the end. [[spoiler:Unsurprisingly, she's the one who ends up hooking up with Chaz in the end instead of Coco.]]
* GoodParents: She loves Kimi and Chuckie very much.
* HappilyMarried: To Chaz.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Pulls a big hero move by racing through Paris on a bike to stop the wedding and falls in love with redheaded Chaz.
* MamaBear: Acts quickly when she thinks her kids and their friends are in peril.
* {{Meganekko}}: She wears glasses.
* NiceGirl: One of the most kind-hearted individuals of the show.
* ParentWithNewParamour: Kira is divorced from her first husband Hiro, and falls in love with Chaz, a widower.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: The show and movies have her appear with jet black hair and light skin.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: She falls in love with the nerdy Chas when she seems how sweet he is and they bond over their love for their children.
* TeamMom: Along with Betty, she had a slight tendency to be a mom to the other moms.

[[folder: Stu Pickles]]

The father of Tommy and Dil, and husband of Didi. He's also the younger brother of Drew and uncle of Angelica.

--> Voiced by: Jack Riley

* {{Adorkable}}: Good-natured, loves to invent, and bumbling at times.
* ArtEvolution: Stu has a longer neck in the pilot.
* BerserkButton: Don't ever bad-mouth his inventions. This especially applies to his older brother, Drew.
* BumblingDad: Not quite as extreme as other examples.
* BunglingInventor or WeekendInventor: Stu builds toys for income, but said toys can be hit or miss on how well they work.
* DeadpanSnarker: At times.
* {{Flanderization}}: In the last few seasons Stu is portrayed as a highly energetic child in a man's body, the best examples can be where he gets really angry and throws his shoes away like he's a child in "Bad Shoes" or when he begs to Didi to keep the puppy in "A Tale of Two Puppies", not like Stu.
* GadgeteerGenius: While mostly the BunglingInventor, when he makes something that actually works, it works out REALLY well. His successes include a [=MacGyver=]-like coconut radio in WesternAnimation/RugratsGoWild, the Reptar mech, Boppo the Clown toy and, of course, the Reptar Wagon (as well as the so-so Dactar Glider)
* GenerationXerox: Stu and Chaz were best friends since childhood as well, much like their own sons. One episode even shows Stu and Drew as babies, and Stu sounding exactly like Tommy.
* GoodParents: Not the brightest pop, but still is helpful to his sons in many ways along with Didi. It's clear that he loves them both very much.
* GoneHorriblyRight: One of his toy inventions was a voice modulator with terrific range. Unfortunately, when Angelica discovers she can sound just like Charlotte, all manner of trouble is caused forcing him to lock the prototype up for good.
* GrumpyBear: Sometimes falls under this with Drew.
* HappilyMarried: With Didi.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: In the episode "Regarding Stuie" he hits his head and reverts to a baby-like state and was thus able to interact with the babies. Another hit on the head brings him back to normal again.
* TheLeader: Tends to take this role in the adults, though unlike the babies, the others frequently berate him for trying to take charge.
* NiceGuy: Most of the time, he's a good father with a big heart.
* PapaWolf: Really gets to work when the kids are lost or threatened.
* ParentalSubstitute: Along with Didi, Stu could be seen as this to his niece, Angelica. While it's obvious that Drew and Charlotte really do love Angelica, they're generally too busy with work to spend any actual time with her, Stu and Didi pay considerably more attention to their niece and discipline her more often than the other adults on the show, including Drew and Charlotte.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red oni to Drew.
* SanitySlippage: Angelica's constant calling and taking things in "Angelica Breaks A Leg" drives Stu up the wall, leading to the [[MemeticMutation infamous scene]] where Didi catches him making chocolate pudding at 4 AM because "[He's] lost control of [his] life". When the truth of Angelica's leg comes out, he ends up breaking down into tears because it's all over.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: And it's ''hilarious'' when he does it, especially in "Angelica Breaks A Leg." Downplayed more after Dil is born, though.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Drew's Manly Man, but when it comes to Howard and Charles, he's a Manly Man.
* SiblingYinYang: With Drew, due to their different personalities.
* SlobsVsSnobs: Slob to his brother Drew's Snob.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Wise Guy to his brother Drew's Straight Man.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Purple rather.

[[folder: Didi Pickles]]
Mother of Tommy and Dil, wife of Stu, and Angelica's aunt. A part time school teacher, who constantly consults a famous pediatrician for advice on how to raise the children.

--> Voiced by: Melanie Chartoff

* AccidentalMisnaming:
** Aunt Miriam called her the following names - Dolly, Sally, Callie, Ginny, Phoebe and Fifi.
** And when the mothers go to a spa and get t-shirts with their names on them, Didi's reads 'Dodo' by mistake.
* AnimeHair: Has very puffy hair.
* AuthorAvatar: Klasky based Didi off herself.
* BerserkButton: Don't call her other names like "Fifi", "Dodo" etc.
* BlindWithoutEm: When she loses her glasses in "Mirrorland" she has to stumble around the house.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The Redhead to Charlotte's Blonde and Betty's Brunette.
* CruelToBeKind: She learns this Aesop in the same episode as the babies. She lies to Stu that one of his inventions is a wonderful idea, but snaps at the end.
--> "This invention is a menace! If you don't stop soon, we're going to end up living in a tent in the backyard!"
* DroppedGlasses: Happens fairly often. In one episode she dropped them while changing into a dress, in another Tommy took them and threw them to the ground in order to get close enough to unleash Spike, and once Angelica took them and ran off when she thought she was invisible.
* {{Fainting}}: She does a magnificent one in "Tommy At Bat" when she sees Tommy flying through the air.
* FieryRedhead: Mostly has a very calm demeanor, but she can get very agitated and anxious. Plus, she's red-headed.
* InformedJudaism: Averted. The series actually shows that she's Jewish, has Jewish parents (Boris and Minka), and celebrates Jewish holidays.
* InkSuitActor: According to her voice actress Melanie Chartoff, her facial expresions and quirks were modeled after her. They even have the same large forehead!
* ImprobableHairstyle: Her giant orange triforce must take some maintenance. She's cut it into a slightly more realistic style in ''All Grown Up''.
* JewishMother: She is technically one but averts the stereotype for the most part. ''Her'' mother on the other hand...(see Grandma Minka below)
* MamaBear: As her vine swinging in the "Vacation" special can attest to.
* {{Meganekko}}: A very cute-looking lady with glasses.
* OnlySaneWoman: Is usually the one to call out Stu when his inventions backfire.
* ParentalSubstitute: Along with Stu, Didi could be seen as this to her niece, Angelica. While it's obvious that Drew and Charlotte really do love Angelica, they're generally too busy with work to spend any actual time with her, Stu and Didi pay considerably more attention to their niece and discipline her more often than the other adults on the show, including Drew and Charlotte.
* ParentingTheHusband: In the movie, Stu is having trouble getting Dil to go to sleep. When Stu tells Didi how frustrated he is, he starts crying, and Didi says, "Oh, Stu!" and puts a pacifier in his mouth.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Betty's Tomboy.
* UnexplainedAccent: Her parents both speak with Yiddish accents but she does not.
* VocalEvolution: Melanie Chartoff originally voiced Didi with her natural voice however over the course of the series her voice became more nasally, just compare her voice from Season 1 to Season 5.

[[folder: Drew Pickles]]
Father of Angelica, uncle of Tommy and Dil, and married to Charlotte. The opposite of his younger brother Stu in almost every way, they do have their spats, but do care about each other.

--> Voiced by: Michael Bell

* AloofBigBrother: To Stu in their youth. They're much closer now that they're older, but he still can come off as hostile towards him at times.
* BigBrotherBully: Several NoodleIncident accounts have Stu insist Drew was a very relentless case of this. Likely a case of SelfServingMemory however, Drew and Lou's accounts imply Stu was just as provocative, [[NeverMyFault if not usually the one who started all their squabbles in childhood.]]
-->'''Drew:''' Well if ''you'' hadn't kicked my cash register then I wouldn't have thrown your rocket!
-->'''Stu:''' Oh yeah? Well if ''you'' hadn't made me play that dumb game-
-->'''Lou:''' ZIP IT, THE BOTH OF YA!
* DotingParent: He frequently fawns over his own daughter and it's easy for her to manipulate him into spoiling her.
* GrumpyBear: Same above as Stu.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Has a tendency to be smug and petty, but is shown to be an overall nice guy and caring father most of the time.
* PapaWolf: He takes this too far in TheMovie when he ''[[spoiler: attacks Stu for accidentally losing Angelica.]]''
* PushoverParents: Can lean towards this at times, because he usually hesitates to discipline Angelica. He even had a nightmare about Angelica taking him to court.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Stu's red.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Manly Man to Howard, Charles and Stu's Sensitive Guys.
* SiblingYinYang: To Stu.
* SlobsVsSnobs: Snob to his brother Stu's Slob.
* StoicSpectacles: Subverted. He has glasses but isn't that stoic.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Straight Man to Stu's Wise Guy.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: In "Tommy's First Birthday," he was an investment banker, in "Mommy's Little Assets," he was a "successful executive," and in the first movie, he was an accountant.
* {{Workaholic}}: Implied. One of his catchphrases is "Let's get down to business." However, he is a much more mild example than his wife.

[[folder: Charlotte Pickles]]

Mother of Angelica, aunt of Tommy and Dil, and married to Drew. She's the CEO of her own company and is frequently seen talking on a cell phone to [[HeWhoMustNotBeSeen an invisible assistant]] (at least until the episode "Mommy's Little Assets" and some later episodes where he was actually shown) named Jonathan.

--> Voiced by: Creator/TressMacNeille

* ActionDressRip: In the third movie, complete with {{Sexophone}}.
* ActionFashionista: In ''Rugrats Go Wild''.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: While Charlotte is always attractive, the degree of her beauty varies throughout the series and the movies.
%%* TheBeautifulElite
* BeautyBrainsAndBrawn: Beauty to Didi's brains and Betty's brawn.
* BeautyIsBad: She's the most conventionally physically attractive of all the women in the show but also has the least attractive personality (at least before her CharacterDevelopment).
* BigFancyHouse: Inverted. While Drew and Charlotte's house is certainly fancier than Stu and Didi's, it is not ''that'' much larger.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The Blonde to Betty's Brunette and Didi's Redhead.
* {{Catfight}}: Has one with Angelica's preschool teacher in "Educating Angelica."
* ConvenientMiscarriage: Possibly had one in "Angelica's Worst Nightmare" (or at the very least, a chemical pregnancy). It's also possible she could've just simply misread or done her pregnancy test incorrectly, had a phantom pregnancy[[note]]Which is more common in animals than in humans, and in humans, it tends to be more psychological than physical[[/note]], or merely realized that at-home pregnancy tests aren't always accurate[[note]]She ''did'' say she was going to the doctor to get an official test done[[/note]].
* CoolCar: Owns several different ones throughout the series, mostly [=BMWs=].
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Occasionally implied, especially in "Mommy's Little Assets" where she compares her corporation to a giant monster that subsists on smaller monsters.
* CucumberFacial: Gets them in "A Whole New Stu" and "Club Fred."
* DefrostingIceQueen: Surprisingly for a show with minimal continuity, Charlotte begins as the biggest outsider of the group, hesitant to spend time with the other adults and over all quite cold and mean spirited. By the later episodes, she's shown to have struck up a strong friendship with the other women and is overall much more sociable.
* DotingParent: Not as bad as Drew, but can be this to Angelica at times.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Her first appearance in "The Santa Experience" gives us this when Stu is saying how happy he is to have her at the cabin with everyone.
--> "Well it is Christmas, the season of love and joy. (''on the phone to Jonathan'') [[MoodWhiplash I don't care, Jonathan! We've got to crush the competition and we've got to crush them now!]]
* TheFashionista: Appears to be much more concerned with fashion trends and her appearance than the other adults.
* HairTriggerTemper: Especially when talking to Jonathan.
* HartmanHips: Has very big hips.
* HaughtyHmph: Gives one to Stu in ''Rugrats Go Wild''.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Can be this at times, such as in "Mommy's Little Assets" where she claims that Betty and Howard spoil Phil and Lil.
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure: Much of the time, she has a very large bust, a very small waist, and very large hips. This is inconsistently animated though, mostly evident in the second and third seasons as well as ''Rugrats Go Wild'' and the final few seasons, and downplayed in the fourth through sixth seasons.
* ItsAllAboutMe: She often puts her own needs and interests before that of her own family and friends. For example, in "The Family Tree," she shows little to no interest in Stu and Didi's anniversary and is much more concerned with her business trip to Japan, and in "Babies in Toyland," she is more upset about being trapped in a cabin because it is her first Christmas as a CEO than because she and the other adults are separated from their children.
* IvyLeagueForEveryone: Though her own alma mater is unknown, Charlotte displays interest in having Angelica attend Harvard in "Educating Angelica," and claims that Chuckie's left-handedness will prevent him from being accepted to an Ivy League university in "Chuckie's a Lefty."
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: What she really is--Charlotte may act abrasive and rude sometimes, but she's a good person deep down.
* LargeHam: Has a very demanding presence whenever she's on the screen.
* LettingHerHairDown: Does this ''very'' seldom, most notably in ''Rugrats Go Wild''.
* MakeUpIsEvil: Wears more makeup than any of the other women (prior to the introduction of Kira) and is the nastiest of them (prior to the introduction of Coco [=La Bouche=]).
* MamaBear: In the Rugrats movie.
* MarriedToTheJob: She's often seen talking on her cellphone talking to her assistant, Jonathan -- or some other business. She does watch the kids from time to time, but she's usually on the phone anyway.
* MeanBoss: Especially to Jonathan, but also to her other employees. She even went as far as firing her own grandmother.
* MegaCorp: The actual name of the company she owns. From how she described it (The "big hungry monster" analogy), it sounds like a conglomerate based entirely around Mergers and Acquisitions (mostly Acquisitions).
* ModestyTowel: Wears one in the [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/rugrats/images/8/80/Charlotte4.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20160218065642 comic]].
* MsFanservice: Quite sexy-looking, it doesn't hurt that she has an hourglass figure.
* MysteriousPast: Unlike most of the adults, little about her childhood or background is revealed and her parents or siblings are never shown (and only mentioned once in the case of her mother).
* {{Narcissist}}: Implied. She calls herself a "very important business executive" in "Educating Angelica."
* NoIndoorVoice: Most of the time, her voice is quite loud and abrasive.
* ObnoxiousInLaws: She is Stu and Didi's sister-in-law and can be quite obnoxious at times.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Implied. She is shown reading a magazine entitled "More Money" in an official promo image.
* ParentService: Provides many examples of this.
* PimpedOutDress: Some of her outfits.
%%* PowerIsSexy
%%* ProudBeauty
* RichBitch: At her worst.
* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: Despite being extremely successful, she occasionally is shown to have little common sense or understanding of the real world, such as in ''RugratsGoWild'' when she tells Jonathan to stop the storm.
* SlipknotPonytail: During her ActionDressRip scene in ''RugratsGoWild''.
* SpoiledBrat: Can act like an adult version at times due to her power and wealth.
* StatuesqueStunner: She sometimes appears to be significantly taller than Drew, though this could be because of her high heels.
* StatusCellPhone: Her constant cell phone use established her as a wealthy, powerful businesswoman during a time when cell phones were rare and expensive.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Betty's Tomboy.
* {{Tsundere}}: She often abruptly switches from being relatively nice while speaking to Angelica or the other adults to angrily and rudely screaming to Jonathan.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: Wears far more different outfits than any other character in the series.
* WakeupMakeup: In "Pickles vs. Pickles," she is shown going to sleep while wearing all of her makeup as well as her earrings and ponytail.
* WhenYouComingHomeDad: Charlotte does try to be a good mom and really does love her friends and family, but she's also a career woman and, as anyone can tell you, that can put a strain on family life. She was on the phone minutes after delivering Angelica, vowing to be back in the office the very next day.
* {{Workaholic}}: Even when she's not working, she's often blabbering away on her cellphone to her assistant, Jonathan, and/or doing some kind of business-related matter. She might be the first example of someone using a cell phone in such a manner so extensively in children's media (at least until children's shows in the late 1990s into the 2000s had to keep up with current trends).
* WorkoutFanservice: In "Princess Angelica."

[[folder: Howard [=DeVille=]]]
Father of Phil and Lil, and married to Betty. He is rather soft-spoken and little seen on the show compared to his wife but does make occasional appearances as a friend of the other babies' dads.

--> Voiced by: Creator/PhilProctor

* BumblingDad: He is somewhat clumsy at times.
* CloudCuckooLander: Pretty spacey.
* HappilyMarried: To Betty
* HenpeckedHusband: While he and his wife obviously love each other, he's clearly the more submissive one in the relationship.

* NiceGuy: A kind, sensitive man.
* PapaWolf: A slight example in the "Vacation" special and the movies.

[[folder: Betty [=DeVille=]]]

Mother of Phil and Lil, and married to Howard. She is a very loud, [[YouGoGirl athletic]], and outgoing woman and clearly the more dominant partner in her marriage. Also usually portrayed as Didi's best friend.

--> Voiced by: Creator/KathSoucie

* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's a good natured, likable person unless you [[MamaBear mess with her kids]].
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The Brunette to Charlotte's Blonde and Didi's Redhead.
* BrainyBrunette: Not an intellectual like Chaz, Didi or Drew, but she's usually the voice of reason regarding blindly following the parental advice of experts by pointing out that said experts probably aren't that qualified and that she merely uses common sense when it comes to raising children.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: She's a tough, rambunctious feminist who has a soft side, particularly for her kids.
* TheLadette: As much of one as a kid's show can get away with.
* LikeParentLikeChild: It's obvious that the twins got their rambunctiousness from Betty.
* MamaBear: She gets very angry when somebody does anything bad to her kids.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Masculine Girl to Howard's Feminine Boy.
* NiceGirl: She has a friendly, pleasant personality.
* NoIndoorVoice: She tends to speak in a strong tone of voice.
* OnlySaneWoman: While she's easily the most aggressive of the adults, Betty has a tendency to play this role to the others--see BrainyBrunette above for part of the reason why.
* StrawFeminist: In some episodes, she can lean slightly towards this stereotype.
* StreetSmart: Probably the most worldly and down-to-Earth out of all the adults.
* TeamMom: She and Kira tended to be the moms for the moms.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Huge Girl to Howard's Tiny Guy--they're roughly the same height, but she has a much broader build than he does.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Betty's the Tomboy to Didi, Charlotte and Kira's Girly Girls (mostly Didi).
* WhatTheHellHero: Betty isn't too happy when she catches her kids running around stark naked with Tommy and when Didi tries to say it's natural, she tells her to forget her precious Lipchitz and "the 60s are over and we lost, so get with the program!" Unfortunately, [[IgnoredEpiphany Didi doesn't listen]].

[[folder: Lucy Carmichael]]
Mother of Alisa, Buster, Edwin and Susie, and wife of Randy. A doctor and Harvard-educated wonder mom.

--> Voiced by: Cheryl Carter

* TheAce: She is completely awesome at everything she turns her hand to: aviation, cooking, parenting, mechanical engineering, medicine. During the episode that introduces her and her husband, it's a running gag how Didi is constantly discovering new things to admire about her new friend and being totally blown away and a little intimidated. She's also quite friendly and kind — the kind of person who makes you wish you were cool enough to be her friend.
* BrainyBrunette: Has a head full of dark hair....and was a Harvard grad, currently works as a doctor, and took some courses from Le Cordon Bleu amongst other things.
* DotingParent: Despite being a career woman, like Charlotte, she pays more attention to her kids and actually disciplines children if they don't behave properly.

--> Voiced by: David Doyle (first four seasons and first episode of season five), Joe Alaskey (remainder of season five and onward)

* ArcNumber: 15 is often used in his stories.
* BadassGrandpa: Especially in the retirement home episode, when he singlehandedly rescues Tommy and Angelica. [[ImprovisedWeapon With a fishing pole]].
** It's been mentioned in the story that he's a UsefulNotes/WorldWarII combat veteran.
* BlindWithoutEm: Can't see one bit if his glasses are lost.
* Catchphrase: "In my day..." whenever he warms up another one of his stories.
* CoolOldGuy: An elderly man who tells stories and is a nice guy.
* CurseOfTheAncients: Prone to using nonsense profanities like "consarnit" and "dagnabbit." {{Lampshaded}} in one episode when Stu asks: "Why do you always talk like a prospector when you're aggravated, ''conflabbit''?"
* DeadpanSnarker: Never misses a chance to snark it up.
* DecemberDecemberRomance: With a nurse named Lulu--they even get married in the second movie!
* DirtyOldMan: If the [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "Lonely Space Vixens" movie]] he owns is anything to go by.
* FlorenceNightingaleEffect: His relationship with Lulu. They met when he was injured and she acted as his nurse. Later, however, it's revealed that they had met before, they just didn't remember.
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: In his youth during the second world war, Lou met Lulu performing as a singer who kept forgetting the words to her songs. The two of them interacted and Lou offered her something to eat, then left before she could thank him.
-->'''Lulu:''' I never was able to thank that man.
-->'''Lou:''' (''smiling'') [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments You just did.]]
* GrandparentalObliviousness: Like most of the adults, he is unaware of the mischief that the kids get into due to being asleep.
* IdenticalGrandson: Actually an Identical Father. Flashbacks show he looked a lot like Drew with a mustache--nowadays, he looks more like Stu.
* OnlySaneMan: Among the adults; not only is he usually the first to notice when something is wrong, he's also often the first to call the others out on it.
* PapaWolf: Acts fast when his grandchildren (and their friends) are threatened.
* SeniorSleepCycle: Tends to fall asleep whenever the plot tells him to.
* SitcomArchNemesis: With Conan [=McNult=], the grandfather of the [=McNulty=] brothers.
* TooDumbToLive: Not him specifically, but the adults constantly rely on him to watch the children, when he will ''always'', without fail, fall asleep and let them get up to their own devices.
* VitriolicBestFriends: Oftentimes he and Grandpa Boris have this kind of relationship.
* WhenIWasYourAge: Grandpa Lou LOVES this trope, telling many stories about the hardships that he suffered in his youth (some of which [[MultipleChoicePast contradict each other]]). He is especially fond of incorporating the number 15 into these anecdotes (ie, "fifteen miles," "fifteen years").

[[folder: Miriam Pickles]]
Lou Pickles' cousin. Referred to as "Aunt Miriam" by Tommy, Angelica, and their parents despite technically being their cousin and not their aunt.

-->Voiced by: Andrea Martin

* BaldWomen: Her beehive hairdo turns out to be a wig.
* DirtyOldWoman: She flirts with Pirate Fred in "Club Fred".
-->'''Miriam:''' He's not much of a pirate, but I [[DoubleEntendre like his booty!]]
* TheDreaded: As a kid, she was this in the same vein as Angelica (being a bully who picked on everyone to cover up her insecurities). She's mostly just annoying as an adult, though the babies are shown to find her a tiny bit creepy every now and then.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: When she drives her car, she knocks over a pair of trash cans, frightens a dog, and parks her car in Tommy's front lawn.
* ElderlyBlueHairedLady: She has blue hair, which Tommy didn't think was natural. It turns out he was right. It was a wig.
* GenerationXerox: It is implied that Miriam and her cousin Lou had a relationship similar to that of Tommy and Angelica when they were kids.
* {{Jerkass}}: She's not very nice to Didi and it is mentioned by Lou that she gave her cousin grief when they were kids.
* JerkassFacade: However, it is revealed later that she did the latter mainly because she was jealous of him for being the one who had real friends.
* MachiavelliWasWrong:
-->'''Miriam:''' (''to Lou'') Remember when you got your head stuck in the fence and those two kids we used to play with, Bill and Jill helped pull you out?\\
'''Lou:''' Yeah?\\
'''Miriam:''' Well...no one would've done that for me. They all liked ''you''.\\
'''Lou:''' But they ''respected'' you.\\
'''Miriam:''' No they didn't. They were ''[[TheDreaded afraid]]'' of [[TheBully me!]]
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: In her first visit to Tommy's house, she shows off her lumbago, doesn't remember Didi's name, chides her niece-in-law for "not feeding Stu enough" and for not being a stay-at-home-mom, criticizes her cooking, and even remarked to the woman she certainly has been eating well.

[[folder: Lulu Pickles]]
Lou Pickle's second wife and stepmother to Stu and Drew.

-->Voiced by: Creator/DebbieReynolds

* CoolOldLady: Quite a good dancer, and much younger in spirit than in age.
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: As mentioned above, Lou and Lulu were later revealed to have met when they were younger only to move on and forget about it until now.
* TheGhost: Despite being mentioned several times, she's nowhere to be seen in ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp''.

[[folder: Grandpa Boris Kropotkin]]
Father of Didi, maternal grandfather of Tommy and Dil, and married to Grandma Minka. He is Ashkenazi Jewish, hails from "the old country" (implied to be Russia), and frequently laments about [[NostalgiaFilter how much better things were there]] than in America. He has a knack for storytelling and appears most prominently in the Hanukkah and Passover episodes displaying this talent.

--> Voiced by: Michael Bell

* AlterKocker: Just by looking at his picture, yes. Also covers all the below tropes.
%%* BadassGrandpa
* BlackBeadEyes: His eyes in all the episodes up till the Passover special are drawn like black dots. Starting from the Chanukah special, they look like regular eyes.
* TheBusCameBack: They come back for some episodes of ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp''.
* CoolOldGuy: Phil even lampshades this in one episode, describing him as something that is both cool and scary at the same time.
* DeadpanSnarker: Most infamously in "Home Movies" where he [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar calls Dr. Kevorkian because Stu's home movies are so boring]].
* FunetikAksent: He speaks in a heavy Eastern European accent and his speech is frequently peppered with Yiddish phrases.
* FunnyForeigner: Yiddish and a funny guy.
* GrumpyOldMan: Pretty old, and is sardonic.
* JewsLoveToArgue: He's an Jewish man who can be bossy and whiny.
* TheOldCountry: It is never specifically mentioned which country this is but it is generally described as a [[{{Ruritania}} Ruritania]]-type place and implied to be somewhere in the [[UsefulNotes/SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn former Soviet Union]].
* PutOnABus: Boris and Minka were left out of the new seasons as time passed.
* TheStoryteller: Has plenty of stories about his childhood.
* SitcomArchNemesis: Originally had one in Mr. Schlomo, they later make up when Boris learns that his longtime rival is actually jealous of him for having children and grandchildren.
* VitriolicBestFriends: Sometimes with Grandpa Lou.

[[folder: Grandma Minka Kropotkin]]
Mother of Didi, maternal grandmother of Tommy and Dil, and married to Grandpa Boris. She displays many of the same stereotypical "Jewish grandparent" traits as her husband but is generally more mild-mannered and serves as the [[WomenAreWiser voice of reason]] for him.

--> Voiced by: Melanie Chartoff

* AlterKocker: Like her husband. Also covers the rest of these.
* TheBusCameBack: She turns up again for one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp''.
* FunetikAksent: Ditto to Boris.
* FunnyForeigner: Like Boris, she is Yiddish.
* IWasQuiteALooker: According to Boris, Minka was the beautiful girl in the village that they lived in.
* JewishMother: Well ''Grand''mother.... or ''"Bubbe"'', if you want to get technical about it.
* TheOldCountry: Comes from an unspecified part of Eastern Europe (implied to be Russia).
* PutOnABus: Boris and Minka were left out of the new seasons as time passed.
* VocalEvolution: Like Didi, Melanie Chartoff made Minka's voice more nasally as the series progressed.

[[folder: Spike]]
The Pickles family dog. He gets along very well with Tommy and often accompanies the babies on their adventures.

--> Voiced by: Michael Bell ("In the Dreamtime"), Creator/FrankWelker (''WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie'', uncredited), Creator/BruceWillis (''WesternAnimation/RugratsGoWild'')

* BadassAdorable: He manages to beat up a wolf in the first movie.
* BigFriendlyDog: Big compared to the babies, at least.
* DogsAreDumb: While by far not an extreme example of this trope, Spike does have his occasional moments of doing dimwitted things, such as kicking off one episode's plot by running away in the rain to chase ''a cricket.''
* FemaleFelineMaleMutt: Male Mutt to Fluffy's Female Feline.
* HeroicDog: He has saved the babies' skins on more than one occasion. [[spoiler:He becomes a BigDamnHero in TheMovie]].
* TheScapegoat: A frequent plot point in the show involves the adults blaming Spike for something he didn't do and then the babies attempting to find a way to [[ClearTheirName clear his good name]], which is rather difficult for them since they can't talk (see below for a prominent example).
* UndyingLoyalty: Many episodes and all three movies show just how loyal Spike really is to the babies and the Pickles clan on the whole. Justified because he's a dog.

[[folder: Fluffy]]

Angelica's white cat, who shares both her pigtail hairstyle and her mean personality. She was first introduced in the episode "Fluffy vs. Spike" as a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin designated rival for Spike]]. After that, she became more of a background character.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: She acts like an innocent kitty most of the time, but takes delight in getting Spike into trouble.
* CatsAreMean: What gets her on Spike's bad side. However, in Babysitting Fuffy, she was mainly "mean" out of self-defense and was purring and being friendly when treated right.
* FemaleFelineMaleMutt: Female Feline to Spike's Male Mutt.
* GirlishPigtails: Shares her owner's hairstyle as well.
* LightIsNotGood: Put the white fur and bad attitude together, and there you go.
* TroublemakingNewPet: Played straight in her debut appearance.

[[folder: Fifi]]

The Finsters' poodle, adopted in Rugrats In Paris.

--> Voiced by: Creator/DeeBradleyBaker ("Bigger Than Life")

* BabiesEverAfter: She and Spike had puppies in "Bow Wow Wedding Vows".
* BigFriendlyDog: She's just as nice to the babies as Spike.
* LoveAtFirstSight: With Spike.
* LoveInterest: To Spike.

[[folder: Spiffy]]

Son of Spike and Fifi, born later in the series.

* MeaningfulName: He is called Spiffy as he is the son of Spike and Fifi.
* {{Keet}}: Highly hyper and playful.
* TroublemakingNewPet: He is rambunctious and hard to train.

[[folder: Pepper]]

Daughter of Spike and Fifi, born later in the series. A very timid puppy who lives with her mother and the Finsters.

* MeaningfulName: Was named Pepper due to her pep.
* GenkiGirl: She was named "Pepper" because of her peppy personality.
* ShrinkingViolet: Early on.
* SiblingYinYang: She's not nearly as rambunctious as her brother, Spiffy.
* UncattyResemblance: Looks and acts so much like Chuckie that it's almost scary--not only is she shy and afraid of nearly everything, but she also has orange fur, some of which sticks out like Chuckie's hair and even a purple spot over her eye that resembles Chuckie's glasses.

!In-Universe Fictional Characters
A Japanese {{Kaiju}} from a movie franchise the babies love.
* BreakoutCharacter: Became very popular and had quite a few episodes to himself as time went on. After ''Series/The90sAreAllThat'' was rebranded as ''The Splat'', Reptar was the subject of every ''Rugrats'' related advertisement.
* BullyHunter: Really ''hates'' aliens showing up [[AlienInvasion trying to take over and boss mankind around]].
* CatchPhrase: "Halt! I am Reptar!", though later on he became TheVoiceless.
* DestroyTheProductPlacement: The Kaiju [[BerserkButton sees red]] when he [[AdvertOverloadedFuture spies buildings]] with [[{{Creator/Viacom}} 'Viacom']] on them. We honestly can't imagine why.
* DestructiveSavior: He always saves the day, but this usually leads to the city's destruction.
* {{Expy}}: Of Franchise/{{Godzilla}}.
* FaceHeelTurn: Subverted in ''Runaway Reptar'', in which he appears to turn evil, but it turns out he was replaced by an evil robot replica made by a MadScientist. Or [[EnfantTerrible Angelica]].
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Through an anomalous event, he ends up [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture in the very futuristic 2010]].
* FriendToAllChildren: The babies love him and many episodes show that the feeling is mutual. VERY mutual. As in, [[PapaWolf do NOT mess with kids when he's around]].
* GoofySuit: Subverted. Many people have donned a variety of Reptar suits for live performances over the years, some cooler than others. [[EmbarassingAnimalSuit But nearly all of them have hated the job]], leading their managers to ponder why they ever bothered [[BadImpressionists to apply for it in the first place]].
* HiddenDepths: From having [[InterspeciesRomance relationships with people]] (on ice!), to dancing on Broadway, Reptar is more than your average giant dinosaur.
* TheJuggernaut: He's a giant NighInvulnerable monster.
* {{Kaiju}}: A friendly one at least.
* LighterAndSofter: Unlike Godzilla on whom he was obviously based, Reptar is a far more heroic entity and more consistently good.
* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: His backstory in the origins movie ''Reptar 2010''. Thrust forwards in time, completely out of his element, mutated [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength into a gigantic unstoppable form]], all he can do with himself [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever is destroy everything]]. The ending, having made his peace with humans he must co-exist with, [[NonMaliciousMonster shows his real character]].
* PapaWolf: Does not take kindly to anyone trying to harm the kids or their families, that goes DOUBLE for giant monsters.
* TyrannosaurusRex: Formerly one, before the space-time anomaly.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: In-universe example which is subverted. Overly protective adults like Didi feel he's far too frightening for younger children, failing to understand Tommy and the gang already adore the giant Kaiju.

An enemy turned ally of Reptar. Appeared in ''Runaway Reptar'' and made some cameos thereafter.
* AllFlyersAreBirds: Being babies, Phil and Lil don't quite seem to get what Dactar is. Phil thinks he's a giant bird, Lil thinks he's a butterfly. They're both wrong, but Phil's guess is a little closer.
* DecoyAntagonist: Of ''Runaway Reptar''. Turns out the ''real'' villain is Reptar's robot replica and its creator.
* {{Expy}}: The Rodan to Reptar's Godzilla.
* GiantFlyer: As a pterodactyl based kaiju, this is a no brainer.
* HeelFaceTurn: At the end of ''Runaway Reptar'', like Rodan before him. While he started out destructive, Dactar eventually helps Reptar take down the Robot Reptar. Lampshaded by Tommy, who comments that Dactar "turned out to be a little bit of a hero too".
* {{Kaiju}}: A more malevolent one than Reptar.
* PteroSoarer: By virtue of being a Rodan expy (although he actually looks more like an actual pterosaur than Rodan does).

Angelica's doll.
* TheAce: There are Cynthia dolls with just about every profession imaginable. Justified because she's a Barbie parody.
* BaldWoman: Downplayed as she still has ''some'' hair, but the hair you see pictured is actually not typical of the standard Cynthia doll--several episodes show that most Cynthia dolls have normal hair. Several episodes suggest that Cynthia's scraggly, nearly bald hairstyle is Angelica's fault.
* ButtMonkey: She tends to get messed up pretty badly, usually as LaserGuidedKarma for Angelica, though sometimes Angelica herself is the one doling out the doll's abuse. Lampshaded in one episode, wherein Angelica mentions that Cynthia's "been through a lot lately".
* CompanionCube: Angelica's.
* CreepyDoll: To a slight degree. Granted, the creepiest thing about her is that she's ''[[EnfantTerrible Angelica's]]'' favorite toy, though her overall unnerving appearance doesn't help much.
* {{Expy}}: Of Barbie.
* MoralityPet: In a sense, she's the only thing Angelica seems to genuinely care about.
* PhraseCatcher: "Can you believe it, Cynthia?" and oftentimes [[SayMyName "CYNTHIAAAAAAA!!!!!!"]]
* SecurityBlanket: For Angelica. Even well into her teens.

[[folder:The Dummi Bears]]

* BearyFriendly: Being a parody of the ''Franchise/CareBears'', they don't have any mean bones in their bodies.
* {{Expy}}: Of the ''Franchise/CareBears''.
* ThePollyanna: All of them are very optimistic.
* TastesLikeDiabetes: In-universe. Not that anyone seems to mind.
