[[folder:The Brady Boys]]

!!Tropes applying to all the boys:
* NiceGuy: Sure, they could be rough around the edges and prone to mean tricks and smart-aleck remarks, but they were all good guys. Especially Peter.
* MissingMom: Even mentioned in the pilot when Bobby is afraid Carol will be sad to see his birth mother's picture still sitting out.

!!Greg Brady

* AlliterativeName
* BigEater
* TheCelebrityLie: Claimed he was close friends with Joe Namath.
* CheerfulChild
* FirstKiss: The show's only episode on this subject was focused on him.

* HeroicSelfDeprecation and IJustWantToBeSpecial: Not quite Jan level, but he still had enough of those moments. Probably that being the ''youngest'' boy and in shadow of ''both'' Greg and Peter, and the second-youngest overall, he was often seen questioning his self-worth.
* MiddleChildSyndrome: While not a middle boy, as the youngest boy (and second-youngest overall) he was actually more insecure than Peter, in four episodes thinking that Carol didn't love him; being rejected from glee club; not having a trophy when all his other siblings did; and the height issue.

* SweetTooth: Was majorly fond of ice cream and pastries.


[[folder:The Brady Girls]]

!!Tropes applying to all the girls:
* HairDecorations
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Even mentioned in the theme song. Young, beautiful and innocent.

* GirlNextDoor
* MagicSkirt: Some of the skirts the girls wore in the later years were ''pretty'' tiny.

->'''Played by:''' Eve Plumb

* TheCastShowoff: Eve Plumb was a highly talented artist, which led to Jan displaying some skills of her own in certain episodes.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Most of her spotlight episodes were this trope
* {{Meganekko}}
* MiddleChildSyndrome: Practically the ''poster girl'' for this trope.
* OvershadowedByAwesome
* {{Tomboy}}: While she did have a prominent girly side, she tended to dress more boyishly than her sisters every now and then, and had less of a problem picking up frogs and mice once she got past her initial "yuck" stage regarding them.
** TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Marcia's Girly Girl.
** TomboyWithAGirlyStreak

!!Cindy Brady
->'''Played by:''' Susan Olsen

* TheBabyOfTheBunch: Even in the ReunionShow ''A Very Brady Christmas'' Cindy, who is now 19, resents the fact that since she's the youngest they rest of her family all treat her like a baby. At Christmas she's still seated at the "kids table" along with the offspring of her siblings while those same siblings (including Bobby who is only a year or so older than her) are all seated at the adults table.
* CheerfulChild
* CompanionCube: Kitty Karry-All in season 1
* TheCutie
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: She definitely gave off this vibe in the first few seasons, especially when she wanted to get her way.
* GirlishPigtails: They were even the focus of the ''theme song''.
* PantyShot: Had a few innocent ones in season 1
* StaticCharacter: Something that annoyed Susan Olsen was the fact that, by the time Cindy had begun to mature, Marcia and Jan had already exhausted most of the typical "teen drama" stories, meaning all Cindy could be was “the youngest one in curls.” Meaning Cindy had to be the wide-eyed, naïve little girl, even as she became a teenager. At one point, Cindy ruins a poster by spelling words wrong (including her sister's name!) and even writing her letters backwards. Olsen herself pointed out that Cindy was much too old for that to be funny by then.
* SweetTooth: Like Bobby, she had a thing for ice cream and other desserts.



!!Alice Nelson
->'''Played by:''' Ann B. Davis

* DeadpanSnarker
* SelfDeprecation: Played for laughs with the character herself.

!!Sam Franklin
->'''Played by:''' Allan Melvin

* TheButcher: Sam is a notable aversion of the trope's usual sinister connotations.
* LoveInterest: To Alice
* NiceGuy: Always a good friend to the family.
* RecurringCharacter: He actually appeared in only eight of the show's 117 episodes, although he's talked about in numerous others.

!!Oliver Tyler
->'''Played by:''' Robbie Rist
* SeventiesHair: His [[Music/JohnDenver John Denver-styled]] haircut didn't help to avert the show's status as an UnintentionalPeriodPiece.
* CousinOliver: The TropeNamer.
* KidAppealCharacter: It didn't work as planned.
* TheKlutz: In the span of his first day at the Brady house, he caused so many accidents that by the end of the day he and the others were convinced he was a jinx.
* NerdGlasses
* {{Sidekick}}: To Bobby and Cindy

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Disappeared midway into Season 2, due to his original actor being run over and none of the replacements working out.
* HeroesLoveDogs
* TropeyComeHome: The episode "Tiger! Tiger!"
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: His "wife" and puppies from the episode "Tiger! Tiger!". Later fell victim to this himself.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The girls' pet cat, Fluffy [[DroppedAfterThePilot disappeared after the pilot episode]]. It's common {{fanon}} that (s)he went to live with the girls' grandparents.
