!!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 [[TheOtherMarty in the pilot]], then [[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.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Dil.
* 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.
* TheHero: Since he's TheProtagonist.
* 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).
** It should be noted that in both ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'', Tommy and his family follow both Judaism '''''and''''' Christianity.
* InnocentBlueEyes: As seen in the unaired pilot.
* JerkassBall:
** Could be this 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.
* NiceGuy
* NiceJewishBoy: He's a good boy with a JewishMother.
* OnlyChildSyndrome: Until the [[WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie first movie]], when Dil was born.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Chuckie's blue.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Manly Man to Chuckie's Sensitive Guy.
* VocalEvolution: In the Season 1, Tommy had a very raspy, quiet voice, his voice somewhat changed a bit in Season 2 and again in Season 4, here he has a louder voice and sounded downright feminine in the pilot.

!!Chuckie Finster [full: Charles Crandall Finster, Jr.]
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, [[TheOtherDarrin then]] Creator/NancyCartwright

Tropes Associated With Chuckie:
* {{Adorkable}}
* ArtEvolution: Chuckie looks a bit different in Season 1, he has fewer strands on his hair and his nose was shaped a bit different, also his head shape was more if a box, luckily 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.
* 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''.
* BlindWithoutEm
* ButtMonkey: ''Very'' often, 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. It's even theorized among fans that the reason why Angelica torments him so much is because she has a secret crush on him.
* CowardlySidekick: In contrast to the fearless Tommy.
* DeadpanSnarker: This line exemplifies it. When Phil and Lil show up as Hansel and Grettle in Chuckie's Cinderella fantasy.
--> '''Phil''': I'm Hansel and she's Grettle.
--> '''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.
* 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.
* {{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.
* {{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...
* GenreSavvy: He's aware that some of Tommy's plans could horribly backfire.
* 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.
* 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
* NiceGuy: Becomes this after the first season.
* NoExceptYes: After this, his dialouge with adults manifests as a "no for everything" phase that is not unheard of among toddlers.
* OnlyChildSyndrome: Until the [[WesternAnimation/RugratsInParis second movie]], when his father remarried and he got a stepsister.
* 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").]]
* RedheadedHero: When he overcomes his fears, he can be this and it's awesome.
* 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
* TheSouthpaw: Chuckie is shown to be left-handed.
* SurvivalMantra: "I'm a big brave dog, I'm a big brave dog..."
* YouthfulFreckles

!!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.

--> [[TalkingToHerself Both]] voiced by Creator/KathSoucie

Tropes Associated With Phil and Lil:
* 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 Kimmi.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Worms, insects, boogers, toilet water-- ''anything'' is fair game.
* DeadpanSnarker: To a certain extent.
* 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.
* 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.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: An interesting case for Lil. In ''Film/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 it.
* ThePigPen: Both of them.
* 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.
* SiblingRivalry
* SingleMindedTwins: Except when arguing
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Phil wears pants, while Lil wears a dress and has a bow on her head.
* ThemeTwinNaming: Both names rhyming with "ill".
* 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.

!!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
* AuthorAvatar: Angelica is essentially a cartoon version of Cheryl Chase (her voice actress, except Cheryl is fairly nice in real life) in many aspects, such as her appearance and some of her interests.
* BerserkButton: Whatever you do, don't steal Cynthia from Angelica. Not even karma will protect you from her wrath.
** 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!"
* 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=].
* 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.
* BlondesAreEvil: Or {{Jerkass}}, because she's too young to be considered evil.
* BrattyHalfPint: Often.
* BrownEyes: In tie-in merchandise from the late `90s and early 2000s.
* TheBully: To the babies, big time.
* 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!
* ChildHater: [[{{Hypocrite}} Despite being a child herself.]]
* CompanionCube: Her Cynthia doll.
* CharacterDevelopment: In the first season, 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 (namely two, but 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.
* CuteButCacophonic: She's three years old and has NoIndoorVoice.
* DeadpanSnarker: Often towards the babies.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: Acts like this when grownups are around.
* 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: Though occasionally she did get caught.
* TheDreaded: All of the other kids (except Susie and Kimi) are scared of her.
* EnfantTerrible: More bratty than evil, but still has her moments.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: She loves her parents.
* 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.]]
* 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.
* 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.
* 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.
* 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.
* 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 the Rugrats NightmareFuel page.
* NoMatterHowMuchIBeg: When she tries to give up cookies.
* 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.
* 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: Season two onwards. 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: "Cookie" was Angelica's 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.


!!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. If Angelica was The BigBad, Susie would be The BigGood.

--> 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.
* GirlishPigtails: She has her black hair in braids.
* GoodCounterpart: To Angelica.
* 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.
* SassyBlackWoman
* 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 character.
* 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]].


!!Dil Pickles [full: Dylan Prescott 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 TaraStrong

Tropes Associated With Dil:
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Tommy felt this way about him in the first movie, but now cares for him.
* 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.
* 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.
* EmbarrassingNickname: He calls Angelica "Yucky", and Chuckie "Ducky" or "Chubby".
* 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.
* 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.
* 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


!!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
* BrokenPedestal: Kimi feels this way about Angelica when she's at her worst.
* CheerfulChild
* CompanionCube: Superthing.
* DistaffCounterpart: Was conceived as being a female Tommy.
* GenkiGirl
* GirlishPigtails
* 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
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl The Energetic Girl to Chuckie's Savvy Guy.
* SixthRanger: Joined the babies after the Rugrats in Paris movie.


[[folder: Adults]]

!!Chaz Finster [full: Charles Norbert Finster, Sr.]

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:

* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: When he wins the lottery he becomes noticeably snobbish and arrogant, irritating Stu and Didi.
* 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!''
* 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.
* HappilyMarried: To Kira.
* TheHeart: Like his son, he helps hold the parents together, such as in "Family Feud", as the Pickles and [=DeVille=]s were bickering.
* 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
* 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]].
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He greatly resembles his son Chuckie.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Often paired with Howard as this in the later seasons.
* TookALevelInJerkass: 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.]]
* UglyGuyHotWife
* 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
!!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:

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Do ''not'' mess with her kids, it's also 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.
* 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.]]
* HappilyMarried: To Chaz.
* [[HeroesWantRedheads Heroines Want Redheads]]: 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}}
* NiceGirl: One of the most kind-hearted individuals of the show.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: The show and movies have her appear with jet black hair and light skin.

!!Stu Pickles [full: Stuart Louis Pickles]
The father of Tommy and Dil, and husband of Didi. He's also the brother of Drew and uncle of Angelica.

--> Voiced by Jack Riley.
* ArtEvolution: Stu has a longer neck in the pilot,
* BumblingDad: Not quite as extreme as other examples.
* BunglingInventor or WeekendInventor
* 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.
* 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.
* GrumpyBear: Sometimes falls under this with Drew.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: In the episode "Regarding Stuie" he hits his head and reverts to a baby-like state. 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.
* 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.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Drew's Manly Man, but when it comes to Howard, 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.

!!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

* AnimeHair
* AuthorAvatar: Klasky based Didi off herself.
* BerserkButton: Don't call her other names like "Fifi", "Dodo" etc.
* BlindWithoutEm
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The Redhead to Charlotte's Blonde and Betty's Brunette.
* 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.
* FieryRedhead: Mostly has a very calm demeanor, but she can get very agitated and anxious.
* InformedJudaism: Averted. The series actually shows that she's Jewish, has Jewish parents (Boris and Minka), and celebrates Jewish holidays.
* 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.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Betty's Tomboy.
* 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

!!Drew Pickles[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/drewpickles_2787.png]]
Father of Angelica, uncle of Tommy and Dil, and married to Charlotte. The opposite of his brother 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.
* DotingParent
* 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 and Stu's Sensitive Guys.
* SiblingYinYang: To Stu.
* SlobsVsSnobs: Snob to his brother Stu's Slob.
* StoicSpectacles: Subverted.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Straight Man to Stu's Wise Guy.
* {{Workaholic}}: Implied. One of his catchphrases is "Let's get down to business." However, he is a much more mild example than his wife.

!!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
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The Blonde to Betty's Brunette and Didi's Redhead.
* 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]].
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Occasionally implied, especially in "Mommy's Little Assets" where she compares her corporation to a giant monster that subsists on smaller monsters.
* 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.
* HartmanHips
* {{Hypocrite}}: Can be this at times, such as in "Mommy's Little Assets" where she claims that Betty and Howard spoil Phil and Lil.
* 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.
* MamaBear: In the Rugrats movie.
* MarriedToTheJob: She's often seen talking on her cellphone talking to her assistant, Jonathan--or some other business.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Betty's Tomboy.
* [[WhenYouComingHomeDad When You Coming Home, Mom?]]: 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.
* {{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).

!!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
* CloudCuckooLander.
* HappilyMarried: To Betty
* HenpeckedHusband: While he and his wife obviously love each other, he's clearly the more submissive one in the relationship.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Feminine Boy to Betty's Masculine Girl, being more reserved than she is.
* NiceGuy
* PapaWolf: A slight example in the "Vacation" special and the movies.
* TheQuietOne: Frequently doesn't say a thing.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Drew and Stu's Manly Men.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Often paired as this with Chaz in the later seasons.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Tiny Guy to Betty's Huge Girl.

!!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 KathSoucie

* {{Badass}}: She's easily the most physically capable of the adults by a wide margin.
* 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.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Mother, Like Children]]: It's obvious that the twins got their rambunctiousness from Betty.
* MamaBear: And how!
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Masculine Girl to Howard's Feminine Boy.
* NoIndoorVoice
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: 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.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Huge Girl to Howard's Tiny Guy--they're roughly the same height, but she has a much broader build than he does.
* {{Tomboy}}
** 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 "the 60s are over and we lost, so get with the program!"

!!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
* 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.
* GoodParents
* HappilyMarried: With Randy.
* IvyLeagueForEveryone: Is a Harvard graduate.

!!Grandpa Lou Pickles
Father of Stu and Drew, and paternal grandfather of Tommy, Dil and Angelica. Being a grandparent and all, he is known for spoiling the babies at every opportunity and is generally considered by them to be their favorite of the grown-ups.

--> Voiced by David Doyle, [[TheOtherDarrin and then]] Joe Alaskey
* 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 WorldWarTwo combat veteran.
* BlindWithoutEm
* CoolOldGuy
* 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
* DecemberDecemberRomance: With a nurse named Lulu--they even get married in the second movie!
* 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'') [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming You just did.]]
* [[IdenticalGrandson 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.
* 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.
* 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").

!!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
* BadassGrandpa
* CoolOldGuy: Phil even lampshades this in one episode, describing him as something that is both cool and scary at the same time.
* FunetikAksent / YiddishAsASecondLanguage: He speaks in a heavy Eastern European accent and his speech is frequently peppered with Yiddish phrases.
* FunnyForeigner
* GrumpyOldMan
* JewishComplaining / JewsLoveToArgue
* 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 [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn former Soviet Union]].
* PutOnABus: Boris and Minka were left out of the new seasons as time passed.
** TheBusCameBack: They come back in some of the final episodes of ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp''.
* TheStoryteller

!!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" personalities as her husband but is generally more mild-mannered and serves as the [[WomenAreWiser voice of reason]] for him.

--> Voiced by Melanie Chartoff

* FunetikAksent / YiddishAsASecondLanguage: Ditto to Boris.
* FunnyForeigner
* IWasQuiteALooker: According to Boris, Minka was the beautiful girl in the village that they lived in.
* JewishMother: Well ''Grand''mother....
* TheOldCountry: Comes from an unspecified part of Eastern Eurpoe (implied to be Russia).
* PutOnABus: Boris and Minka were left out of the new seasons as time passed.
** TheBusCameBack: They come back in the final episodes of ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp''.
* VocalEvolution: Like Didi, Melanie Chartoff made Minka's voice more nasally as the series progressed.


[[folder: Pets]]

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

--> Voiced by Creator/BruceWillis in ''Rugrats Go Wild!''

* BigFriendlyDog
* 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).

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
* 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.
%%* LightIsNotGood
* TroublemakingNewPet: Played straight in her debut appearance.


The Finsters' poodle, adopted in Rugrats In Paris.
* BabiesEverAfter: She and Spike had puppies in Bow Wow Wedding Vows.
* BigFriendlyDog.
* LoveAtFirstSite: with Spike.
* LoveInterest: To Spike.


Son of Spike and Fifi, born later in the series.
* MeaningfulName: He is called Spiffy as he is the son of Spike and Fifi.
* TroublemakingNewPet: he is rambunctious and hard to train.


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.

[[folder: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]].
* FriendToAllChildren
* 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 virtually unstoppable [[NighInvulnerable and indestructible]].
* {{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 his 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.
* [[TrappedInThePast Trapped In The Future]]: Through an anomalous event, he ends up [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture in the very futuristic 2010]].
* TyrannosaurusRex: Formerly one, before the space-time anomaly.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: 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.
* CompanionCube: Angelica's.
* {{Expy}}: Of Barbie.
* SecurityBlanket: For Angelica. Even well into her teens.
* PhraseCatcher: "Can you believe it, Cynthia?" and oftentimes [[SayMyName "CYNTHIAAAAAAA!!!!!!"]]

!!The Dummi Bears

* {{Expy}}: Of the Care Bears.
* ThePollyanna: All of them.
