[[folder:Mystery Inc.]]
!!Scoobert "Scooby" Doo
->Voiced by:\\
Creator/DonMessick (1969-1994)\\
Hadley Kay (1997)\\
Scott Innes (1999-2001, 2001-2006 video games)\\
Neil Fanning (2002-2004 Live Action Films)\\
Creator/FrankWelker (2002-present)\\

* ActionPet: When he needs to be.
* BigEater: With Shaggy. When Shaggy is about to bite his DagwoodSandwich, expect Scooby to swallow it.
* BigFriendlyDog: Scooby is not aggressive. He does not attack monsters. He runs away from them.
** And a good thing too. It's easy to forget since he's so goofy, but Scoob's almost as big and heavy as a grown man.
* TheBigGuy: Dumb as a dog, but loyal -- though he may require a Scooby snack -- and necessary to sniff out clues.
* ButtMonkey: Often drifts into this.
* CartoonyTail: Scooby's tail may closely resemble a real Great Dane's, but was designed to look and act like that of a cat's.
* CatchPhrase: "Scooby Dooby Doo!" and "[[SpeechImpairedAnimal Ruh-oh!]]"
* ClassicalAntiHero: In a way. With his massive cowardice, Scooby's just as likely to avoid taking part in a mystery, as he is to take the role of the hero.
* CoolUncle: Scrappy thinks of Scooby this way, despite Scooby's cowardice.
* CowardlyLion: Scooby's cowardice was likely [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] through time, but whenever you get in his way, he can definitely take you down.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: In some iterations.
** ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' had his most Badass form when he "killed" a robot double who tried to kill his friends with a forklift! His line to the robot? "PLAY DEAD!"
** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' had the Scooby Gang run into Batman and Robin. It just happens that [[RealityWarper Batmite]] also [[TookALevelInBadass helps]] Scooby and Shaggy into the fight as well.
*** Really, this applies to Scooby even on his beginings. Case in point: in "Never Ape an Ape Man", not only he aided the actress to escape the Ape Man by holding the bridge, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome he barked at it and even fought him with punches and kicks while bouncing on a branch until he defeated the monster]]. And that was on its first iteration!
* DetectiveAnimal: Whenever the gang is investigating another mystery.
* DogsAreDumb: Played with, for while he's certainly [[WesternAnimation/YogiBear smarter than the average dog]], Scooby is usually the least intelligent member of the team.
** There are times he gets lucky in what he does just happens to be heroic enough to save the day (once when Jeannie was trapped in a bottle and surrounded by a force field that only sound could penetrate, Scooby howled at a pitch high enough to shatter the bottle's glass).
** In the movies, he very obviously TookALevelInDumbass.
* TheDragAlong: Like Shaggy, Scooby has to be coerced with promises of Scooby Snacks.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: The name ''Scoobert'' wouldn't be officially established until ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo''.
* {{Flanderization}}: See CowardlyLion.
* FurryDenial: "Dog? Where?"
* HeroicDog: And the VillainOfTheWeek would have gotten away with it, if YouMeddlingKids didn't have a dog.
* HeroismIncentive: WouldYouDoItForAScoobySnack
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Shaggy, in a rare man and dog example.
* IdiotBall: Scooby carries this throughout some movies and incarnations.
* InvincibleIncompetent: With Shaggy. They always seem to end up finding the weekly monster despite their cowardice, laziness, and their usual lack of investigative skills.
* LargeHam: Often in the original series when he needs to be the bait and tries to get out of it.
* LetsGetDangerous: When anyone he really cares about is in trouble. There was even one moment when Velma was captured and Scooby turned down a Scooby Snack, saying he didn't need it to be persuaded to help rescue her.
* LovableCoward: Though he ''does'' have his hero moments. See CowardlyLion above.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: See EmbarrassingFirstName above.
* PapaWolf: In an episode of ''What's New Scooby Doo?'' he faced a huge menacing cat creature that was attacking a litter of puppies. Having spent the whole night already rescuing the pups from a pair of kidnappers, Scooby was in no mood to put up with the monster's threats, and flat out tackled it. Don't threaten innocent puppies in front of Scooby Doo.
* RogerRabbitEffect: Even though the humans are also cartoons, Scooby-Doo far exceeds them in his ability to do ToonPhysics. Shaggy shares this ability to a lesser degree.
* SpeechImpairedAnimal: All of Scooby's words invariably start with an 'R', except for when he says his name, and sometimes even then.
* TalkingAnimal: A talking Great Dane.
* TeamPet: Although it could be argued that ''he'' is the hero, and the MeddlingKids are his ''sidekicks''.
* TookALevelInBadass: In some incarnations, mostly the movies.
* TookALevelInDumbass: In the live-action movies. See DogsAreDumb above.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', which adds to the attempt in developing the characters. He got better, of course.
* VocalEvolution: Messick's original voice for Scooby in the earliest episodes of the original series was much deeper and huskier sounding before it transitioned to the style everyone's familiar with today.

!!Norville "Shaggy" Rogers
->Voiced by:\\
CaseyKasem (1969-1994, 1997, 2002-2009)\\
Creator/BillyWest (1998)\\
Scott Innes (1999-2001, 2001-2009 video games)\\
Creator/ScottMenville (2005-2008)\\
Matthew Lillard (2002-2004 Live-Action Movies, 2010-present)\\
Nick Palatas (Creator/CartoonNetwork Films)
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Not as much as Velma, but ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' and the live-action films do feature a Shaggy more attractive than the skinny, lanky original Shaggy.
* {{Adorkable}}
* BigEater: With Scooby. If Fred wants to find a monster, Shaggy will volunteer to investigate the kitchen, and prepare a large snack for himself and Scooby -- until the monster comes to interrupt the meal.
* CatchPhrase: "Zoinks!"
* ClassicalAntiHero: Shaggy's probably even ''more'' likely to turn tail on a mystery than Scooby is.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: In some iterations.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Whether Shaggy is vegetarian or not. In TheMovie he's portrayed as vegetarian, as he was in ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' and the ''Scooby Doo Behind the Scenes'' shorts, but recently[[note]] (as in, now that Casey Kasem is gone)[[/note]] he seems to be back to his old ways.
* TheDragAlong
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Norville. Thus, he only goes by "Shaggy".
* {{Flanderization}}: He and Scooby have both grown increasingly cowardly over time, although they do have their {{Badass}} moments.
* GreaseMonkey[=/=]MrFixit: Some of Shaggy's careers are related to cars or mechanics.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Scooby. In fact, he's the ''only'' character other than Scooby himself to appear in every version of the franchise.
* InvincibleIncompetent: With Scooby. They always seem to end up finding the weekly monster despite their cowardice, laziness, and their -[[DependingOnTheWriter usually]]- complete lack of investigative skills.
* KavorkaMan: It's not so much that Shaggy is a pimp, but many episodes and movies have shown that many an attractive female seems to think Shaggy is hot.
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: You'd never know what his real name was in the original show – it was revealed in ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'' and reiterated in ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated Mystery Inc.]]'' The name was used in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' and his friends didn't know who "Norville" was until the character who mentioned the name said he's also known as Shaggy.
* TheLancer: When the gang does split up, Shaggy leads one half. Shaggy (along with Scooby) often notices creepy things that Fred had missed. Shaggy likes to sneak away with Scooby to [[BigEater eat a large snack]].
* LetsGetDangerous: He'll do anything to help his dog. This applies also to the girls and Fred, but to a lesser extent.
* LikeIsLikeAComma: Part of his [[ValleyGirl Hippie Speak]]. In one episode of ''Mystery Inc'', like, Velma is trying to, like, make him, like, stop.
** It puts him on the receiving end of a scathing TheReasonYouSuckSpeech from Creator/HarlanEllison in one episode.
* LovableCoward: In the early seasons, it's justified as even though the so-called monster is a person pulling a ScoobyDooHoax, they are still sometimes dangerous criminals who will kill if their trick doesn't scare off the intruder. Later seasons remove that fact.
* NervousWreck: Usually.
* StonersAreFunny: Shaggy may or may not be an actual stoner, but how can people ''not'' jump to that conclusion? He's always hungry (he eats ''dog treats'', for crying out loud), he's always freaking out over monsters, he thinks his dog (Scooby) can talk – though granted, his friends all think so too – and he even looks and speaks like a hippie stereotype. Talk about GettingCrapPastTheRadar.
* ToughRoom: Shaggy doesn't get laughs often, and when he does, it's usually just Scooby (who ''himself'' isn't too sure what's so funny.)
-->'''Scooby''': [[CatchPhrase I don't get it]].
* ValleyGirl: Like, a male example of Hippie Speak. Still doing it forty years later, man.
* {{Ventriloquism}}: Shaggy will sometimes use his ability to "throw his voice" to fool the villains.
* WagTheDirector: Invoked. Whenever Casey Kasem played Shaggy in later years, the character became vegetarian because Kasem (himself a vegetarian) refused to reprise the role otherwise.

!!Velma Dace Dinkley
->Voiced by:\\
Nicole Jaffe (1969-1973, 2001, 2003-2004)\\
Pat Stevens (1976-1982)\\
Marla Frumkin (1979)\\
Christina Lange (1988-1991 ''A Pup Named Scooby-Doo'')\\
Creator/BJWard (1984, 1997-2001)\\
Mindy Cohn (2002-present)\\
Linda Cardellini (2002-2004 Live-Action movies)\\
Hayley Kiyoko (Creator/CartoonNetwork movies)
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Varies, but she gets hit with this semi-often. While never truly ugly, Velma was traditionally overweight looking, with a short-and-stout appearance, tacky haircut and a relatively plain face. Starting with ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland Zombie Island]]'', this started to change somewhat, ''especially'' in ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' and the movies (much like Shaggy), where she's made very petite with a tiny waist and an [[http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110107172221/scoobydoo/images/d/d1/Velma_in_her_swimsuit_(Camp_Scare).png hourglass figure, with a cute-as-a-button face to boot]]. And in the live action films, she's played by very attractive actresses. The most recent animated movies fuse these two somewhat, and ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated Mystery Inc.]]'' also splits the difference – Velma sports a cuter, more stylized version of her original appearance, complete with little bows in her hair.
** To note, she didn't gain extra weight and freckles until a bit later after the debut so her new attractiveness is [[http://s897.photobucket.com/user/LadySomething/media/hula.jpg.html a bit closer to how she originally looked]].
* {{Adorkable}}: Not so much in the original series, but definitely later on.
* AdventurerArchaeologist: She becomes one in ''Where's My Mummy'' and probably has the greatest CrowningMomentOfAwesome in Scooby history.
** Interestingly, in an episode of ''The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries'', Velma has an uncle named John who's an archaeologist.
* AgentScully: She is the more vocal skeptic of the group, but for the most part she just goes along with it.
* BlindWithoutEm: "My glasses! I can't see without my glasses!"
* BrainyBrunette: Maybe not the original, but certainly one of the best examples... if one considers her a brunette (her hair has always been sort of brownish chestnut).
* CatchPhrase: "Jinkies!"
* DeadpanSnarker: Played up in her most recent incarnations, as well as the earliest shows before her [[TheSmartGuy smart guy]] traits were played up.
* GadgeteerGenius: Arguably qualifies, at least in ''What's New, Scooby-Doo?'' where she's capable of building (among other things) a robot dog with a remarkable number of functions and an MP3 player the size of a sugar cube (though the latter lacked earphones).
** In ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'', she built (apparently from scratch) a computer that defies all manner of reality in how it can be stored or moved, and has features that even modern rigs lack
* HollywoodNerd
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated Mystery Inc.]]''.
* MagicSkirt
* TheMeddlingKidsAreUseless: ''Averted''.
* {{Meganekko}}: Possibly even an UrExample of the trope.
* OnlySaneMan
* PerpetualSmiler: Unless something annoys or scares her, she can almost always be seen sporting a content smile no matter what's going on - especially noticeable during the summations, which she almost always does with a big smile on her face. Particularly used in the more recent movies, where most things that make her frown last less than a few seconds.
** Dramatically reversed in ''Mystery Incorporated,'' where she spends a ''lot'' of time annoyed with her teammates. Her default facial expression here is "grumpy".
* PluckyGirl
* PutOnABus: In the '80s era productions, Velma left the group to work for NASA, occasionally visiting for episodes about astronauts or the White House being haunted.
* RaceLift: Vaguely Asian in the live action TV movies.
* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: Dur.
** AddedAlliterativeAppeal: Half her dialog in ''The Mystery Begins''...
** SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: ...And the other half.
* SweaterGirl: Just ''look'' at her! Especially in the original series (with its LimitedWardrobe), it was extremely rare she ever took that oversized sweater off.
* TeenGenius: Dur.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Extremely noticable in ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated Mystery Inc]]''.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Clowns?]]: In ''What's New Scooby-Doo?'' as the result of an incident at a childhood birthday party.
* WomenAreWiser
* YouthfulFreckles: In most incarnations, though not all. It's one of the few physical hints that Velma is, in fact, the youngest member of the group (not counting Scooby).
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade C.

!!Daphne Ann Blake
->Voiced by:\\
Indira Stefanianna Christopherson (1969)\\
Heather North (1970-1997, 2003)\\
Kellie Martin (1988-1991 ''A Pup Named Scooby-Doo'')\\
Creator/MaryKayBergman (1998-1999)\\
Music/GreyDeLisle (2000-present)\\
Creator/SarahMichelleGellar (2002-2004 Live-Action movies)\\
Kate Melton (Creator/CartoonNetwork movies)
* ActionGirl: In the live-action movie.
* AdaptationalBadass: Overall, Daphne has been portrayed as more {{badass}} in later adaptations than in earlier ones, but she still flits between being an ActionGirl and DistressedDamsel in each production.
* BikerBabe: Shown in recent movies, such as ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooLegendOfThePhantosaur Phantosaur]]'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/BigTopScoobyDoo Big Top]]''.
* BoundAndGagged: Quite frequently.
* CatchPhrase: "Jeepers!"
* TheChick
* CrimefightingWithCash: In ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'', she's revealed to basically be the financier for all the investigations.
* DefrostingIceQueen: As a kid, in flashbacks and prequels.
* DesignatedVictim: Typically being the member of the gang most likely to get abducted, get trapped, get hypnotized, fall through a secret passage...
* DamselInDistress: See the entry immediately above this sentence.
* FieryRedhead: She easily has the shortest temper of the entire cast.
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple
* HartmanHips: Sometimes.
* HotScoop
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure: In some installments, though her original design in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou'' is more realistic, as are many of the DTV movies.
* InSeriesNickname: Danger-Prone Daphne.
* IntrepidReporter: Whenever she's an adult, this is usually her career.
* TheKlutz: In ''Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!''
* MacGyvering: In ''What's New, Scooby Doo?''
* MagicSkirt
* MsFanservice: Arguably her purpose originally. Less so as the decades wore on.
* ParentService
* PluckyGirl
* ProperTightsWithASkirt
* PutOnABus: Daphne was the last character (other than Scooby-Doo or Shaggy) to leave the cast before the franchise's late-90's revival, apparently to become a journalist.
* {{Redheaded Hero}}ine
* ShesGotLegs
* SpoiledSweet: Her family is absurdly wealthy, but she rarely acts like it (except in ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo).
* StylishProtectionGear: In winter episodes, she wears a fancy coat [[PrettyInMink trimmed with fur]].
* TookALevelInBadass: And has kind of bounced around between ActionGirl and DistressedDamsel in search of a happy medium ever since.

!!Fred "Freddie" Herman Jones
->Voiced by:\\
Creator/FrankWelker (1969-1983, 1997-present)\\
Carl Stevens (1988-1991 ''A Pup Named Scooby-Doo'')\\
Freddie Prinze Jr. (2002-2004 Live-Action movies)\\
Robbie Amell (Creator/CartoonNetwork movies)
* BadassDriver: He's the one who actually owns the Mystery Machine, and it's one of the main reasons why he is needed on the team (along with leadership skills), because when you see the insane obstacle courses the gang encounter in all of these mysteries, you know that Fred ''has'' to be an awesome driver to make sure the mystery is solved. He never disappoints in this field.
* BowtiesAreCool: Fred's stubborn attachment to his apricot ascot has evolved into a variant of this.
** Lampshaded and averted in ''Zombie Island'' when, while dressing for a fancy dinner, he stares at his ascot for a moment, contemplating it, then says "Nah" and walks off.
* BrainlessBeauty: In the live-action films, and occasionally elsewhere.
* CatchPhrase: "Let's split up, Gang!"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Often in recent times, but ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'' is the worst offender.
* CluelessDetective: Fred started out as being perhaps the most intelligent member of the team behind Velma, and essentially become less competent the longer the franchise has run, [[TookALevelInDumbass with a lot of his intelligence and leadership qualities changing hands from him into Daphne]]. This reached its apex in situations where he became the least competent member of the team with Shaggy and Scooby often outwitting him. He's gotten a bit better since then.
* ConspiracyTheorist: As a kid in ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo''. See the Red Herring example below.
* CrazyPrepared: In ''What's New, Scooby-Doo?'', Fred has made enough "special modifications" to the Mystery Machine to put Han Solo to shame, including fitting it with a roof airbag which conveniently enables Shaggy to save Velma when she falls off a highrise movie set in "Lights, Camera, Mayhem".
* TheDitz[=/=]DumbBlonde: Has been [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] into this starting with ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'', but more prevalent with his portrayal by Freddie Prinze, Jr. and then increasingly obvious in the instalments ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' and ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated''.
* {{Flanderization}}: Into a DumbBlonde with equal parts of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and a [[TheDitz Ditz]]. His interest in trap-building has turned into an ''obsession''.
* GadgeteerGenius: In ''What's New, Scooby Doo?'', Fred at least comes close with his improbably sophisticated modifications to the Mystery Machine.
* TheGenericGuy: Former TropeNamer. He was the least interesting member of the cast in the original series, but later portrayals of him avert this, usually making him goofy and naοve. Being TheHero also makes him the StandardizedLeader.
* TheHero: A rare case of being one that the series he's in ''doesn't'' focus on. See "Supporting Leader", below.
* IconicItem: He will defend his (outdated even at the time it was introduced) orange ascot vigorously against any fashion police who mock it.
* TheLeader: Type II/IV primarily, and a subtle Type III that gets {{Flanderized}} and parodied in later instalments.
** StandardizedLeader: See TheGenericGuy.
** SupportingLeader: He may be the leader, but he isn't the main character.
*** Except in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooCampScare'', which is something of ADayInTheLimelight for him.
* LetsSplitUpGang: The TropeNamer. Fred says this '''''a lot'''''. Lampshaded from time to time in the revival instalments.
* ObliviousToLove: In some incarnations like ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' Fred is a teenager with only one thing on his mind. Unfortunately for Daphne, that something happens to be "solving mysteries and building traps!"
* ProperlyParanoid: In ''A Pup Named Scooby-Doo''.
* PutOnABus: In the 1980s era productions, Fred left the group to open an actual solo private investigator business, that is implied to not have gone well. See CluelessDetective above.
* RedHerring: In ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'', a kid named [[TheBully Red]] [[MeaningfulName Herring]] was the culprit behind the first case the group ever solved, and Fred then accused him of every other crime they ever ran across.
** Ahem. To clarify the 'first case'? It was a flashback to when they were playing in the sandpit.
* TookALevelInDumbass: See CluelessDetective and {{Flanderization}} above.
* {{Tuckerization}}: Fred is named for television executive [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Silverman Fred Silverman]], who helped with ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou's'' development and subsequent broadcast.
* VocalEvolution: Over the decades, Frank Welker has given Fred more and more of a Minnesotan accent as a result of the character's personality becoming increasingly goofier.

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]
->Voiced by:\\
Lennie Weinrib (1979-1980)\\
Creator/DonMessick (1980-1986)\\
Scott Innes (2002 Live-Action movie)

Scooby's more courageous nephew. The one who yells, "Let me at 'em!", when he sees the MonsterOfTheWeek. To prevent spoilers, some of Scrappy's tropes from the 2002 movie ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' are not listed here.

Scrappy is famous as the TropeNamer for TheScrappy. But that's an audience reaction, and belongs in our [[YMMV/ScoobyDoo YMMV section]].
* BrooklynRage: In his earliest appearances he had a definite Brooklyn accent, which was toned down after a while.
* CatchPhrase: "Da-da-da-da-da-da, Puppy Power!" and "Let me at 'em, Let me at 'em!"
* CousinOliver: Scrappy was not in the original cast, but joined later. He is much smaller (and so we presume, much younger) than Scooby, Shaggy, or the rest of the original cast.
* {{Expy}}: Of Henery Hawk, FoghornLeghorn's pint-sized predator from ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', according to Creator/MarkEvanier. Lennie Weinrib's original portrayal even sounds a bit like Henery (which makes sense considering H-B had tried [and failed] to recruit Mel Blanc himself to do the voice).
* FearlessFool: Whenever a monster shows up, Scrappy always tries to fight it, with little to no effect. Several of these instances include real monsters, where if Scooby had not snatched him out of the way and ran, Scrappy would've been mince meat.
** Averted a few times when his Scrappy traps seem completly capable to catching "something" (although Shag and Scooby get caught more often then the monsters) and in The Nutcracker Scoob, Scrappy has zero problem defeating a cat that's bigger than him and throwing it right out the building.
** He also dispatches of a larger human Farquard in ''Boo Brothers''.
* InHarmsWay: "Did you say haunted? Oh boy!"
* KidAppealCharacter: WordOfGod says this is exactly why he was created. At the time, it worked to save the franchise. Since then, it's been famously disputed.
* KnightOfCerebus: Either PlayedStraight or {{Inverted}}, depending on your view of the character. His continuation within the series past 1979 opened a brand new threshold for the monsters to become RealAfterAll, but also [[ReverseCerebusSyndrome forced the show to take a]] DenserAndWackier approach to everything.
* LeeroyJenkins: "Let me at 'em, I'll splat 'em!" Scooby prefers to run away, but Scrappy likes to charge in and yell at the monster.
* LetMeAtHim: His CatchPhrase.
* [[MouthyKid Mouthy Puppy]]: He is ''far'' more talkative than Scooby.
* {{Nephewism}}: Scooby suddenly has a nephew. Scrappy often talks about "Uncle Scoob".
** Lampshaded in the title sequence. Scooby's just as confused as the viewers.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: He ''is'' able to lift Scooby and Shaggy with one hand.
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: The most that Scrappy can do is annoy the monster, because Scrappy is no real threat.
** Some of his Scrappy-Traps do catch Shaggy and Scooby, so perhaps the monster would have been caught too had Shaggy and Scooby not gotten in the way.
* TalkingAnimal: Lennie Weinrib in the first year, Don Messick afterward.
* TakeThat: Oh so much since the franchise's late-90's revival. One particular example – In ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated Mystery Inc.]]'', Daphne stares at a life-sized statue of him, about to wax nostalgic before Fred stops her, saying, "[[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain We promised to never speak of him again]]. '''Ever'''."

->Voiced by Creator/DawsButler

Scooby-Doo's cousin, who appeared during the series's early-80's {{retool}}. A grey Great Dane who definitely lives up to his name. Has not been seen or mentioned since the final iteration of the original series ended in the mid-80's.
* CatchPhrase: "Dum dum dum DUM!" (from LudwigVanBeethoven's ''Fifth Symphony.'')
* DeepSouth: His speech was a (poor) approximation of that accent.
* TheDitz / DogsAreDumb: Duh.
* FearlessFool: Played with. He's not fearless, as he can get scared, but most of the time he appears to be extremely brave, only because he's too [[TheDitz dumb to realize he's in danger in the first place.]]
* MeaningfulName: Just as dim-witted as his name implies.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Subverted. Scooby-Dum is featured in the opening sequence of the Scooby Doo Show, but only appears in four out of the forty total episodes.
* SimpletonVoice
* TalkingAnimal: Though he never has much interesting to say.
* ToonPhysics: Arguably even better at employing them than Scooby Doo. In "The Chiller Diller Movie Thriller," the gang are trapped in a tomb, so they stand on top of each other to reach the ceiling; they still can't reach. Scooby Dum, who is on the bottom, just ''pulled himself out from the bottom and climbed to the top'', and since he can get away with that apparently because he doesn't know how gravity works, they escaped.

!!Flim-Flam [=McScam=]
->Voiced by: Susan Blu

Flim-Flam joined the cast in ''WesternAnimation/The13GhostsOfScoobyDoo''. The only character who could POSSIBLY be more disliked then Scrappy.
* AintTooProudToBeg: He'll go from trying to con someone to screaming "Please don't hurt me!" in all of two seconds flat if they call him out on what he's doing. Shaggy even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades it]] when he tells Flim Flam to skip the begging and just ''run''.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: He is a Tibetan orphan with that name . . .
* BetaCouple: He was basically the Shaggy to Scrappy Doo's Scooby.
* ConMan: It's in his ''name''.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Though he's also an UnreliableNarrator, so he could just be a runaway.
* CousinOliver: An unusual example, as he was clearly meant to be a part of the cast from the beginning (despite not actually joining until the second episode).
* {{Hammerspace}} / BagOfHolding: His hoodie's pocket. He's pulled a ''flatscreen TV'' out of there.
* ImprobableAge: He can't be more than ten years old.
* KidDetective
* LovableRogue: Well, that's what the creators intended, at least.
* MasterOfDisguise
* SnakeOilSalesman: Again, it's in his ''name''.
* TakeThat: An episode of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' has said he's in prison for 25 years for his crimes.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: He's the smartest of the cast, especially whenever Daphne isn't around.

!! Yabba-Doo
Scrappy's other uncle and Scooby's brother. Seen only in the Old West segments of the 1982–83 season.
* CatchPhrase: "Yippity-Yabbity-Doo!" Logic would dictate that it would be "Yabba-Dabba-Doo", [[TheFlintstones but someone else already says that...]]
* {{Cowboy}}
* CowboyCop
* [[MessyHair Messy Fur]]

!! Vincent Van Ghoul
->Voiced by:\\
VincentPrice (''WesternAnimation/The13GhostsOfScoobyDoo'')\\
MauriceLaMarche (''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'')

* FunctionalMagic: In ''13 Ghosts''
* InkSuitActor: He's basically just VincentPrice with sorcerer abilities. ''Mystery Inc'' plays this up for all it's worth.
* MrExposition
* SpiritAdvisor
* WhoYouGonnaCall: Though you run the risk of making him mad if you do so at an inopportune time.

!! The Hex Girls
->'''Voiced by:'''\\
Thorn: Creator/JenniferHale\\
Dusk: Jane Wiedlin\\
Luna: Kimberly Brooks

An all-girl rock band with a Goth motif, extremely popular in the ''Scooby''-verse. They first appeared in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheWitchsGhost'', and have popped up from time to time since, including in ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated Mystery Inc.]]'', where they inadvertently have a major impact on the main gang's character arcs.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Dusk, Thorn (even with the red color), and Luna.
* DarkSkinnedRedhead: Luna.
* DarkIsNotEvil: They dress in dark clothing, wear vampire fangs, and have bat stickers on their instruments, and yet they're environmentally friendly rock stars with hearts of gold.
* {{Expy}}: They are essentially a CaptainErsatz of ComicBook/JosieAndThePussycats with a coat of {{goth}} and ecofeminist paint.
* GirlishPigtails: Dusk
* GranolaGirl: An unusual thing to mix with their Goth exterior, but they do it.
* MythologyGag: Hanna Barbera had a lot of bands, so it was about time for a new one.
