[[folder:As A Whole]]
* BadassFamily: A superhero family!
* ABoyAGirlAndABabyFamily: Dash, Violet, and Jack-Jack respectively.
* DominoMask: Their new costumes include one.
* IronicName: Par(r) means "average". Something the Parrs definitely are not.
* RedIsHeroic: Their supersuits.
* SuperFamilyTeam: There's a posed shot in the later half of the film in such a pose.
* SuperHero: All of them have the powers and the costumes and heroics.

[[folder:Bob Parr[=/=]Mr. Incredible]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mr_ofcredible_333.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Craig T. Nelson

Mr. Incredible is a super-hero from the Golden Age. He marries Elastigirl and accidentally starts the "Supers Relocation Program" to force all Supers to keep their secret identities to themselves.
----
* {{Acrofatic}}: In the scene he went to the jungle.
* ActionDad: A vigilante-superhero.
* {{Badass}}: A superhero that fights giant machines and other bad guys.
* BadassInDistress[=/=]DistressedDude: As Syndrome's prisoner.
* BattleCouple: With Helen. They were on patrol on their wedding day.
* BerserkButton: He has a few. If you stop him from saving someone who needs help, he'll get angry. If you hurt his family, he'll get ''really'' angry. And if you try to kill them... [[BewareTheNiceOnes God help you]].
** This trope (and practically every other superhero trope) is lampshaded by Syndrome, who does in fact call him on it.
--> '''Mr. Incredible:''' "Let them go!"
--> '''Syndrome:''' "Or what?"
--> '''Mr. Incredible:''' "Or I'll ''crush her''!"
--> '''Syndrome:''' "Oooh, that's a little ''dark'' for you, isn't it?"
* BewareTheNiceOnes: When he believes that [[spoiler:Syndrome has killed his family]], it's implied he was going to kill the guy in rage.
** He also comes ''really close'' to [[spoiler:crushing Mirage to death]], but ultimately can't go through with it.
* TheCape: While he does not wear one, that doesn't stop him from being a strong example of one.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Will stop for anything as a simple as getting a cat down from a tree. Actively seeks opportunities to be a hero. Also makes it difficult for him to settle down after the abolition of superheroes.
* CouldSayItBut: When he worked at Insuricare, he did this to give customers tips on how to get around the system.
* DatingCatwoman: Although its improbable they actually had an affair, him and Mirage have quite flirty banter and the appearance of an emotional affair.
* DeskJockey: Mr. Incredible is forced to become one to support his family's normal middle class life and hates it ''so much'' he sneaks a little vigilantism on the side.
* [[spoiler:DespairEventHorizon: After it seems that Helen and the kids were killed by the air-to-air missiles, and after he almost crushed Mirage to death, he's left sobbing. Next time we see him, he's clearly in this place, expressing itself in him as a TranquilFury as he's about to truly crush Mirage's neck when she frees him. He's pulled out of it after Mirage revealed that his family wasn't actually killed. He's still emotionally scarred from it though, as seen with his "not strong enough" rant later.]]
* FatAndSkinny: The Fat to Lucius's Skinny. Though, Bob does become more fit.
* GeniusBruiser: Mr. Incredible must be very intelligent to master the subtle ins-and-outs of Insuricare, which we see even before he outwits Syndrome's Omnidroid and goes for a delve in the computer network. When he's infiltrating Syndrome's base, this fact helps him just as often as his strength does.
* GloryDays: He wants to be a hero again.
* GoodParents: He slips into ParentalObliviousness at times, but he gets better.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Receding hair of gold, anyway: though he is getting on in years and has become more cynical with time, Mr. Incredible is characterized as a stand-up, classic superhero in many ways.
* HappilyMarried: Downplayed. Bob loves Helen, but is often frustrated by how unexciting normal family life is.
* HeroesWantRedheads: He's married to a RedHeadedHeroine.
* HeroicBuild: As a super strong golden age hero, he is a built like a tank. His young self is buff, true to trope, but years of office work have made him go to seed quite a bit. When he gets back in the hero game and begins working out again, he becomes noticably slimmer aound the waist and broader around the chest, but not his youthful shape.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Lucius. They've been best friends and superhero partners for a long time.
* HotBlooded: He gets annoyed easily when the subject of the "good old days" comes back.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: The Huge Guy to Helen's Tiny Girl; his chest is broad enough to encompass her and a hypothetical twin.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Or, "I Just want to be Special ''Again.''"
* ImprobableParkingSkills: Seriously, few people would be able to park an RV on all four wheels, after rolling it over and having it dropped from a high altitude.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: He takes out a mook ''with a coconut''. His strength is probably the reason it works. When you have SuperStrength, anything throwable becomes a weapon.
* InHarmsWay: He takes out a police scanner to look for trouble so he can stop it.
* IWorkAlone: He says this word for word.
* JadedWashout: After being forced into retirement he is bitter and works for an insurance company, and chafes under the urges of his ChronicHeroSyndrome.
* LanternJawOfJustice: Again, gold age superhero; of course he has one of these.
* MadeOfIron[=/=]NighInvulnerable: Survives being crushed by a bank vault door, falling several stories, and being hit by a train all in one scene.
** [[AllThereInTheManual This is reinforced by the hero-files on the special features DVD - his invincibility rating is the highest possible.]]
* MeaningfulName: Drop an R from his last name and he's Bob Average.
* MyGreatestFailure: How he felt towards driving Buddy, his LoonyFan, away after asking him to stop helping him.
* NeckLift: While on the precipice of a HeroicBSOD.
* NiceGuy: He's not a superhero because he loves thrills; he's a superhero because he loves helping people. He has a long history of doing so as an insurance agent too.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Lampshaded when he tries to save a man that wants to end his life.
* NotQuiteFlight: He can glide for short distances.
* OlderHeroVsYoungerVillain: The older hero to Syndrome's younger villain.
* OldSuperhero: Has been retired long enough for his oldest child to be born and grow to a high school age.
* PapaWolf: Hurt his children and he ''will'' make every effort to kill you. He'll even seriously contemplate taking out his rage on a random minion. Or throw a car at you as you make your getaway rant.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red to Lucius's Blue. Colors aside, he is more gun-ho and adventure seeking.
* RetiredBadass: For a while because of the Super Relocation Program.
* SaltAndPepper: With Lucius. While his best friend doss not want to get back into the superhero business, Bob listens to cop radios to find ways to be a superhero.
* SmarterThanYouLook: You'd expect him to be the DumbMuscle. You'd be wrong.
* SmugSuper: In his youth, he reveled in his superheroics, [[DeconstructedTrope which made it so difficult]] for him to settle to a normal life.
* SpecialPersonNormalName: Admittedly, it makes for a great cover.
* SpiderSense: {{Implied|Trope}} in the movie, [[AllThereInTheManual confirmed in the DVD extras]].
* StoutStrength: He gains a lot of weight in the years after his forced retirement, but he's still got his super-strength.
* SuperStrength: His primary power.
* TeamDad: Once the family is together as [[TheTeam a team.]]
* ThouShaltNotKill: He takes Mirage hostage and threatens to kill her to rattle Syndrome, but when Syndrome calls his bluff and dares him to do so, he is unable to go through with it. Just as Syndrome expected, Mr. Incredible wouldn't take a life even if he had nothing to lose.
** He does, however, hurl a car at Syndrome's airplane, and the resulting consequences could have been predicted ...
* TopHeavyGuy: Without his super strength, one would wonder how his small legs support his great chest.
* TranquilFury; While on the verge of a HeroicBSOD, [[spoiler: when he's choking Mirage]], he remains perfectly and frighteningly calm.

[[folder:Helen Parr[=/=]Elastigirl]]
[[quoteright:275:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrs_ofcredible_3316.jpg]]

----

* {{Housewife}}: After retiring from superheroing she became one of these; taking care of the house, raising kids, etc.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: The Tiny Girl to Bob's Huge Guy; see his entry.
* HyperAwareness: She has super-vision; she notices an incredibly tiny piece of rubble on Bob's clothes and the detailed stitching on Bob's old super-suit. [[FridgeBrilliance Perhaps her eyes can focus on tiny objects because their lenses are super-stretchy, like the rest of her body]].
* InkSuitActor: Helen's face strongly resembles Holly
* MaleGaze: The audience get a close up on her rear in her super suit.
* MamaBear: This woman will literally die to protect her children. There is no doubt that Helen Parr is the ideal MamaBear.
* MySuitIsAlsoSuper: "Your suit can stretch as far as you can, without injuring yourself - and still retain its shape. Virtually indestructible...and it breathes like Egyptian cotton!"
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: She is the most well-adjusted to living a normal life, compared with the rest of her family.
* PowerPerversionPotential: Subtly implied (it is a PG movie, after all) with her extreme flexibility.
* RedheadedHeroine: Her hair has gotten more brownish over time, but Helen still shows the streaks in her hair that classify her as a redhead.
* RetiredBadass: For a while and for the same reason as Bob. She does ''not'' want to come out of retirement.
* [[RubberMan Rubber Woman]]: Her power is super-stretchiness.
* SomethingPerson: Her superhero name is Elastigirl.
* SpeechImpediment: She has a slight lisp.
* SuperSenses: At the very least she can see very small objects from across the room (very small as in "crumb of rubble from Bob's latest escapade"). Could be a super-power of the "mom" variety.
* TeamMom: For the super family team.
* ThighHighBoots: Her shoes for her new super costume reach her thighs.
* WomenAreWiser: She copes with not being a superhero much better than Bob does. It helps that she doesn't have a soul-crushing job.

[[folder:Dash Parr]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mr__dashcredib_3432.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Spencer Fox

The middle child of the Parr family. He has super-speed powers and gets in trouble in school because he wants to play sports. His mom insists that competing in sports events would be cheating, even if he won by a little.
----
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Annoying Violet is part of his everyday life.
* BadassAdorable: Awesome powers? Check. Run on water? Check. RapidFireFisticuffs abilities? Check. Only about ten-years-old? Check. Adorable mischief maker? Check. A case of MotorMouth? Check. His expression with these words: "That was the best vacation ever! I love our family."
%%* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The Blonde to Violet's Brunette and Jack-Jack's Redhead.
* BrotherSisterTeam: With Violet.
* CoolBigBro: The older brother to Jack-Jack.
* CuteBruiser: Throwing punches at super speed certainly makes him one.

* {{Keet}}: He's response to the super hero legacy is to go super speed and gush about 'cool outfits'.
* KidHero: School age super speedster.
* [[BigBrotherInstinct Little Brother Instinct]]: "DON'T! [ducks punch] TOUCH! [ducks another grab/punch] MY! SISTER!"
* MeaningfulName: Guess what super power '''Dash''' has.
* PintSizedKid: JustifiedTrope, as he's not that old.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: JustifiedTrope. Force=Mass*Acceleration, thus, a kid with superspeed packs a punch.
* PropheticNames: Dashiell Robert Parr, nicknamed "Dash." A speedster. Somebody really shoulda seen that coming.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: He can pull this off with super speed.
* SmugSuper: He shows signs of becoming one - he's already pretty smug.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: Refers to himself as "The Dash."
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: Dash the speedster.
* SuperReflexes: Witness the fistfight with the pilot of the hover-pod he lands on during his chase scene. The only time his foe landed a punch on him was when Dash was distracted by the incoming cliff. His reflexes are an aspect of his...
* SuperSpeed: He can move so fast that he can pull a prank on camera and avoid punishment because the camera can't keep up with him.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: A sibling version. The Tiny Guy to Violet's Huge Girl. {{Justified}} since he's younger than Violet.
* WalkOnWater: Not one of his natural powers but he can run fast enough to do it.

[[quoteright:236:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrs__incrediviolet_2543.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Creator/SarahVowell

The oldest child in the Parr family. Violet has a crush on popular student Tony Rydinger, but she is too shy to talk to him. She has the power to create force fields and turn invisible.
----
* ActionGirl: She's not on her mother's level, being younger, but she can hold her own.
* {{Adorkable}}: Her crush shyness earns her this status.
* AdrenalineMakeover: By the end of the story she has confidence and a new look; she doesn't use her hair to hide her face anymore.
* BadassAdorable: Her {{Adorkable}} moments and the fact that she grows into the super hero she was meant to be.

* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Acts like this at the beginning, but she [[CharacterDevelopment gets over it.]]
* BreakoutCharacter: Violet Parr is one of Pixar's most popular females. Some fans have commented they would like her as the protagonist in the sequel.
* BrotherSisterTeam: With Dash.

* CoolBigSis: To Dash and Jack-Jack. She may argue with the former, but they do care for one another.
* DareToBeBadass: Her mother's speech to her could be seen as this. Though, Helen had a more gentle and motherly example of doing it.
* EmoTeen: Played straight in the first half of the movie. {{Averted}} by the ending.
* {{Expy}}: Not in personality or looks, but she has the same power set as [[Franchise/FantasticFour Sue Richards]].
* FreudianTrio: The Superego to Dash's Ego and Jack-Jack's Id.
* HairDecorations: She starts to wear a headband later in the film.
* HartmanHips: Violet's hips are quite curvy, though not to the extent of her mother.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: At first she didn't like her superpowers.
* ImportantHairAccessory: The common shy girl variant, in which she sweeps her bangs back under a headband in the middle of the film, allowing us to see her full face and symbolizing her newfound self-confidence.
* InSeriesNickname: She's called "Vi" by her family and close friends.
* InvisibleStreaker: She can't turn her normal clothing invisible. However, her super suit fixes that.
* LittleMissBadass: A teen example of the trope. Develops into one during the course of the film: Mentally and physically.
* MeaningfulName: Two-fold: both ShrinkingViolet (referencing her shyness) and ultra-violet, which is a color invisible to the human eye.
* NoodlePeople: She's quite skinny.
* PeekABangs: At the beginning. As she gains more confidence in herself, she has gotten rid of it so we see ''both'' of her eyes.
* PersonalityPowers: A shrinking violet who turns invisible?
* PsychicNosebleed: Overloading her force fields knocks her out for several seconds.
%%* RavenHairIvorySkin
* ShrinkingViolet: Shy and lacking in confidence at the beginning.
* SmittenTeenageGirl: The first thing we see her do is admire her crush from afar: Tony Rydinger.
* StoneWall: Achieves this with barriers.
* TeensAreShort: When you look at her with her dad. Heck, she's still shorter than her mom.
* ThighHighBoots: Violet's shoes on her super suit reach her thighs.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: A sibling version. The Huge Girl to Dash's Tiny Guy. {{Justified}} since Violet is older than Dash.
* TookALevelInBadass: Her powers are influenced by her mood and mental state. As a result, she's much less powerful before she overcomes her ShrinkingViolet status.

!!Other Characters

[[folder:Mr. Gilbert Huph]]
->Voiced by: Wallace Shawn

Bob's boss and CEO of Insuricare. He is a short-tempered ([[TheNapoleon and short]]) man who often butts heads with Bob about his graciousness to customers' claims.
----
* AmusingInjuries: [[spoiler: He's in traction after Mr.Incredible throws him through the wall of his office (and a few more walls behind it).]]
* [[spoiler:AssholeVictim: Bob loses his temper with him and throws him through several walls and cubicles. Because he's a jerkass, no one is likely to think less of Bob for it (though Bob still gets fired).]]
* BullyingADragon: Classic case of little guy pushing around big guy (Bob) because Big guy can't do anything about it without getting in trouble.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He only cares about "keeping Insuricare in the black."
* HateSink: A cold, heartless insurance executive who actively discourages his workers from ever granting any of their clients' insurance claims. His only loyalty is to his stockholders, and were he not bound by the law he would be perfectly willing to not help any of the customers. This makes his ultimate fate intensely satisfying.
* ItsAllAboutMe: All he cares about is helping his ''own'' people in his business, rather than others.
* {{Jerkass}}: See LackOfEmpathy.
* LackOfEmpathy: After seeing a guy getting mugged, his only response is: "Well, let's hope we don't cover him!"
* LargeHam: Goes completely off the deep end when he figures out Bob has been letting his customers do an end-run around the bureaucracy.
* LoopholeAbuse: Uses this often to deny claims, and then worries when Bob's customers learn to turn this back on him.
* MeanBoss: His entire role in the movie is be a greedy jerkass that Mr. Incredible hates working for as a normal guy.
* TheNapoleon: He clearly gets a buzz out of humiliating the extremely tall Bob and forcing him to comply with his authority.
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: He worries about losing the "obstructive" part thanks to Bob.

----
* AnIcePerson: Generating ice is his superpower.
* {{Badass}}: A superhero.
* BaldOfAwesome: Bald, but a very competent superhero.
* BlackBestFriend: His most promimenet scene is as Mr.Incredible's vigilante partner. Lucius was also the best man at Bob's wedding.
* CoolUncle: Not by blood, but he's an uncle figure to Bob and Helen's kids. It's implied that he's the kids' godfather.
* DeadpanSnarker: Primarily earlier in the film, as later on he's fighting for his life while badly out of condition.
* DidntWantAnAdventure: "I WANTED TO GO BOWLING!"
* ElementalBaggage: Needs to use the water available around him to make his ice.
* FatAndSkinny: The Skinny to Bob's Fat. Although, Bob gets more fit later on.
* HenpeckedHusband: Implied.

* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: To Bob's "[[IncrediblyLamePun ICE of you to drop by]]" line.

* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Bob's Red. He's more mellow and aware of how dangerous their vigilante hobby can be.
* RetiredBadass: He's in the same boat as Mr.Incredible.
* SaltAndPepper: With Bob. Lucius would honestly rather go bowling, like what they said they were doing to their wives, than find crises to barge into so they can risk their lives and their families.
* SuperHero: Just like Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl.

->Voiced by: Creator/BradBird

A diminutive but brilliant fashion designer who, back in the day, designed costumes for superheroes.
----
%%* AlwaysCamp
* AsianAndNerdy: Downplayed since she's half-Japanese. However, she remembers all of her clients' cape incidences, including the dates.
* BerserkButton: {{Badass Cape}}s on superhero outfits. [[CapeSnag Somewhat]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath justified]]:
-->'''Edna''': November 15th of '58! All was well, another day saved, when... his cape snagged on a missile fin!
-->'''Bob/Mr. Incredible''': Thunderhead was not the brightest bu-
-->'''Edna''': Stratogale! April 23rd, '57! Cape caught in a jet turbine!
-->'''Bob/Mr. Incredible''': E, you can't generalize about these things-
-->'''Edna''': [[DeathMontage Meta Man, express elevator! Dynaguy, snagged on takeoff! Splashdown, sucked into a vortex!]] NO CAPES!
* BunnyEarsLawyer: An eccentric and hammy woman who is a genius at designing super suits.
* BrainyBrunette: She may consider herself a fashion designer, but her designs require ''seriously heavy-duty'' AppliedPhlebotinum.
* CoolOldLady: A hammy and eccentric super suit designer. You know the Parr kids would love to play around at her place.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Don't brush off her warnings about wearing capes.
* CrazyPrepared: The Parr family never said anything about making a super hero family team, but she already created suits for all of them. In regards to the baby, whose powers she didn't know, she claims that she 'covered the basics'.
** "Luck favors the prepared."
* DeadpanSnarker: The only parts of her dialogue that are ''not'' bitting wit are her hammy lines, which are also snarky.
* TheFashionista: She's a fashion designer but she actually ''hates'' working for the fashion industry. In her opinion, compared to super''heroes'', super''models'' make profoundly uninteresting subjects.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: She mentions how tons of heroes met their downfall due to capes. [[spoiler:Guess what happens to Syndrome?]]
* GadgeteerGenius: Ordinarily, super-geniuses work in electronics. She went into textile engineering instead. Friction-proof clothing? Bomb-proof spandex? Fabric that becomes invisible in sympathy with its wearer?
--->'''E:''' And machine washable, dahling. That's a new feature.
* GenkiGirl: Just listen to that phone call. It's almost too much for both Helen and the receiver.
* [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan Get A Hold Of Yourself, Helen!]]
--> "[[DareToBeBadass You are Elastigirl! Find him!]]"
* GloryDays: She misses the Golden Age too.
-->''"Super"models, nothing super about them, stupid spoiled little stick figures with poofy lips who think only of themselves. FEH! I used to design for '''gods'''!''
* GenreSavvy: A list
** She knows about the trouble with capes.
** She's aware of TenMinuteRetirement.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: She makes these; bullet proof clothing stylzed heroic red with a tracking device.
* {{Impractically Fancy Outfit}}s: [[DefiedTrope ...But not these.]] "NO CAPES!"
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She is dismissive and harsh in regards to fashion, but puts new heart into Helen with some tough love.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Bob only wants some minor mending for his old suit done, but she's clearly inspired by his visit to start designing superhero costumes again.
* LargeHam: She might be tiny, but the ham is enormous.
* MadArtist: She's ''very'' excited about her work.
* MeaningfulName: "Mode" is the French word for "fashion" or "style" (as in the expression "a la mode" i.e. "fashionable"), which is an appropriate name for a fashion designer.
* {{Meganekko}}: Likely because SmartPeopleWearGlasses.
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: [[DVDCommentary Brad Bird]] talks about how everything about her - her house, her furniture, the art on her walls, the people she spoke with - were designed to highlight the contrast between her tiny physical size and her forceful, overbearing personality. ''She'' might be tiny, but she thinks, talks and acts '''BIG'''.
* [[PintSizedKid Pint-Sized Adult]]: Clearly, she's older than all of her clients, but her height doesn't show it. She was shown to be about knee-high with Bob who's in his forties. How old would that place ''her''?
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: Or [[ScrewTheRulesIhaveMoney an incredibly gifted and]] [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections prestigious designer]] or all of the above. Either way, she takes no crap and does not soften her opinion of anyone, ''for'' anyone.
* SlasherSmile: A thoroughly good person, but just look at the disturbingly gleeful look on her face when she demonstrates how sturdy Jack-Jack's suit is by ''setting it on fire'' - especially in contrast to Helen's horrified face. She mirrors the same face when telling Helen to track down Bob - she ''deeply'' enjoys her work.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Bird describes it as some kind of German/Japanese accent mix.
** Apparently, the original actress had a hard time speaking her lines with this accent and when Bird demonstrated the accent, the actress recommended him to be Edna instead.

[[folder:Tony Rydinger]]
->Voiced by: Michael Bird
The high school boy on whom Violet nurses a heavy crush.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Revealed to be this when he [[spoiler: asks Violet out on a date at the end of the movie.]]
* ChickMagnet: A couple of girls greeted him in a flirty manner.
* LoveInterest: Violet's. [[SatelliteLoveInterest He doesn't get that much characterization since he only appears in the movie for a few minutes.]]
* NiceGuy: Once he figures out Violet's interested, [[spoiler: he's friendly and polite to her]].
* PrettyBoy: Very much so; it's not hard to see why Violet's interested.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: He shows up in the beginning and the end of the film and mainly exists as Violet's crush. In fact, he only really exists to demonstrate ''Violet's'' character development. At the beginning of the film, she's too shy to even remain visible in his presence. At the end, she's able to talk with him and get a date while ''he's'' stammering nervously.

[[folder:Agent Rick Dicker]]
->Voiced by: Bud Luckey

A government agent with a department charged with monitoring and concealing superhero activity, and an old friend of Bob's.
----
%%* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Expy}}: His look, voice and manner are based on RichardNixon
* KnightInSourArmor: After telling Bob that he's screwed up once too often and is on his own, Dicker immediately relents and offers to help him out for old times sake.
* TheMenInBlack[=/=]MemoryWipingCrew: He's part of the government agency that monitors and conceals the existence of superheroes.
* WhatTheHellHero:
** He points out to Bob that his inability to get over the GloryDays and continually seek out thrills causes a lot of people a lot of trouble including himself.
** In the "Jack-Jack Attack!" short, he also points out to Kari that handing a baby over to a stranger wasn't exactly responsible. Kari retorts that "THE BABY WAS EXPLODING!"

[[folder:Gazerbeam]]
* CaptainErsatz: Of {{ComicBook/Cyclops}}.
* EyeBeams: This is pretty much the only thing we know about him.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: [[spoiler:Before he died, he discovered the password to Syndrome's computer.]]
* SuperHero: He shoots lasers out of his eyes!
* PunnyName: A portmanteau of "gaze" and "laser beam".
* [[spoiler:PostHumousCharacter: He's only seen alive once at Bob and Helen's wedding for a few seconds, and after a TimeSkip plays a fairly important role after being killed by the Omnidroid]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Superheroes killed by their capes]]

* CapeSnag: "Superheroes killed by their capes".
* ChekhovsGunman: These guys died when their capes snagged on things. [[spoiler:Guess how Syndrome dies?]]
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Every one of them.
* DeconstructedTrope: These guys serve to deconstruct the BadassCape; in real life, these things are cumbersome at best and dangerous to the wearer at worst.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Especially Meta-Man, who [[SuperpowerLottery had every power imaginable]] and yet was killed by his cape.
* {{Flight}}: All of them.
* FlyingBrick: Stratogale.
* FriendToAllChildren: Thunderhead.
* MakingASplash: Splashdown.
* ShockAndAwe: Thunderhead.
* SuperHero
* SuperWristGadget: Dynaguy's arm-mounted rocket boosters.
* SuperpowerLottery: Meta-Man, including FlyingBrick.

!!Villains

[[folder:Syndrome/[[spoiler:Buddy Pine]]]]
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mr__incredome_69.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Creator/JasonLee

* ActuallyADoombot: {{Inverted}}. [[spoiler:Since he died at the end of the movie,]] Syndrome is a robot in all other appearances, such as the Disney/DisneyOnIce show, ''Disneyland Adventure''.
* [[spoiler:AscendedFanboy: At the beginning of the film he wants to be "Incredi-boy, Mr.Incredible's sidekick. Even his general demeanor as a supervillain reflects this: he constantly geeks out about aspects of his plan and Mr. Incredible in general, at least when not being sadistic.]]
* BigBad: "I am ''Syndrome''! Your ''nemesis''!"
* {{Badass}}: When you capture a superhero family [[spoiler: and commit genocide against supers]] you qualify.
* BadassBookworm: He designed and built all the tech he uses.
* BadassCape: Again, invoked. [[spoiler:It's the cause of his death.]]
* BadassNormal: No superpowers, yet a threat to those that have them.
* BerserkButton: He has a big one:
-->''"[[ThatManIsDead My name is]]'' [[ThatManIsDead not]] ''[[spoiler:Buddy]]!!"''
* [[spoiler:CapeSnag: The cape he was wearing ends up in a jet engine, leading to his death.]]
* [[spoiler:CharacterDeath: He is one of the very few Pixar villains to die.]]
* TheChessmaster: Enacted ThePlan that [[spoiler: reduced the super population to a handful]] and no one was the wiser for a long time.
* [[spoiler:ChildProdigy: Invented his own rocket boots when he was a pre-teen.]]
* CurbStompBattle: His zero-point energy gauntlets win all of his battles in seconds. [[spoiler:Later his own Omnidroid curbstomps him!]]
* CutLexLuthorACheck: Syndrome is ''already'' rich from selling weapons tech to foreign countries. He only keeps his very ''best'' inventions for himself.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: This, more than all of his minions and weapons, is what's most threatening about him.
** When developing his Omnidroid, he didn't just send it after Bob right away because the risk of it (and in turn him) being defeated were too high. Instead, he sent it after other, weaker supers. When one of them defeated it, Syndrome analyzed the data he collected this way, made a stronger version of the Omnidroid, and repeated the process until he deemed it strong enough to take on Mr. Incredible.
** He's aware of the danger inherent in JustBetweenYouAndMe.
-->''You sly dog! You caught me'' '''monologuing'''!
* DeadpanSnarker: Lots of his dialogue is snarky but more of it is LargeHam style.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Syndrome was just a geeky kid who wanted to be a super-sidekick using his gadgetry. After he's rather roughly dismissed by his hero, Mr. Incredible (who was trying to deal with multiple disasters at that particular moment, one of which had been caused by the kid's clumsy attempt to help, and was also on the verge of being late to his own wedding), he goes to the dark side and spends his life designing technology so he can ''kill off all the world's superheroes'', take their place, and then eventually [[CutLexLuthorACheck sell his inventions]] so that ''everyone'' can be super, depriving everyone of their uniqueness. He takes special glee in his attempts to kill/abduct Mr. Incredible's wife and kids.
* DroneDeployer: Has a search drone on his wrist glove.
* EvilCounterpart: To Bob. Syndrome lives in glory, and he is what Bob would have ended up to be if he continued his obsession with living in his glory days and getting assimilated in it, but unlike Bob who does feel bad about his actions, Syndrome has no empathy for others and never apologizes or shows remorse for his actions.
* EvilGenius: He creates an island lair, gravity controlling gloves, and intelligent AI that can learn; he uses them for petty revenge and self-satisfaction.
* EvilRedhead and FieryRedhead: He's evil, has red hair, and has a large personality with a fiery temper.
* [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn: Wannabe superhero to genuine super villain.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: He always starts out casual, cheerful and even friendly when talking to his enemies, but it's always just a prelude to sadistic gloating and outright cruelty.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:From a normal child to a villain.]]
* GadgeteerGenius: Again, he made all those gadgets.
* GloryHound: Part of his EvilPlan involves staged disasters so he can fix them and be adored.
* GlovedFistOfDoom: Zero gravity, controls drones etc.
* GreenEyedMonster: He got extremely jealous when he found out that the [[spoiler: Incredibles and Frozone defeated his robot and got all the attention and glory]]. This may have been his motivation to [[spoiler:killing all the other supers, so he could get all the glory]].
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler: Mr.Incredible discovers that he has killed dozens of supers while improving the drone.]]
* [[spoiler:HeroWorshipper: As Buddy, who then went HORRIBLY wrong.]]
* [[spoiler:HoistByHisOwnPetard:]]
** [[spoiler: The cape he chose to wear for his costume is caught in the turbine of his plane and he's sucked into it.]]
** [[spoiler:The Omnidroid he spent years developing so he could defeat it outsmarts him within seconds.]]
* IJustWantToBeSpecial:[[spoiler: This is why he wanted to be Mr.Incredible's sidekick as a kid]].
* [[spoiler:ImYourBiggestFan: Says this word for word towards Mr. Incredible.]]
* ImprobableHairstyle: It stands straight up like a cone.
* InsufferableGenius: He's a smug asshole who brags about his inventions and intelligence.
* ItsAllAboutMe: His EvilPlan begins and ends with his ego and personal vengeance.
* {{Jerkass}}: As if being evil wasn't enough, he's also a rude, callous asshole.
* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath: Is killed when the car his money let Mr. Incredible buy is thrown into his plane while he's threatening to return to take his revenge on them.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: While not exactly upbeat, the movie certainly takes a darker turn when he shows up.
* LanternJawOfJustice: Inverted because he's a villain.
* LargeHam: He's quite fond of his EvilGloating.
* LackOfEmpathy: Feels ''zero'' remorse for [[spoiler: killing all those supers]], and ordering a plane with children in it shot down.
* [[spoiler:LoonyFan: He started off as Mr. Incredible's ultra-obsessed fan. He later became his ultra-obsessed enemy.]]
* MadScientist: The technology, the megalomania, the hamminess, the self-obsession, all classic mad scientist.
* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:Was overly friendly as a child ("Buddy") and continually hoped Mr. Incredible would take him on as a sidekick ("Pine")]].
* {{Narcissist}}: He cares only for himself and his fame.
* NeverMyFault: Continuously insert yourself into a fight between a super hero and a super villain just to show off your new gadgets? Get a bomb slapped on your cape and actually RESIST the attempts of the super hero to remove it? Your erratic flight causes the bomb to land on a railroad track that leads to a train crash with many injuries and the super villain's escape? The fact that you shouldn't have been there at all because you are a child? Is all that the reason you found yourself in the back of a police car on the way home to your parents? Of COURSE NOT! It's because the super hero hates you for not being a "super!"
** Tellingly, when he {{FlashBack}}s to Mr. Incredible telling him to "fly home," the bomber responsible for the explosive on his cape is [[SelfServingMemory no longer present.]]
* OlderHeroVsYoungerVillain: The younger villain to Mr. Incredible's older hero.
* PsychopathicManchild: He goes from calm and collected one moment to whinging like a kid the next.
* {{Revenge}}: One of his motivation for his evil plan.
* {{Sadist}}: When he wanted to murder Helen, Dash, and Violet, he took pleasure in trying to make them suffer.
* SmugSnake: He's normally competent enough, but [[spoiler:he fatally underestimates the Omnidroid.]]
* TheTeamWannabe: [[spoiler:To Mr Incredible, when he was a child.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: He wasn't so competent [[spoiler:as a child]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: [[spoiler:A young fanboy of superheroes like Mr. Incredible himself, turned into a dangerous villain.]]
* WhosLaughingNow: [[spoiler:He wanted to be a superhero but was turned away by Mr.Incredible and this caused a grudge against natural superheroes.]] "See, now you respect me. Because I'm a ''threat''. That's the way it works. Turns out there a lot of people, whole countries, who want respect..."
* WrongGenreSavvy: He occasionally slips into expecting the film to work more like a classic {{Superhero}} comic than the [[TheModernAgeOfComicBooks Modern-Age-influenced]] DeconReconSwitch it actually is. [[spoiler: It's one of the contributing factors to his death, as he assumes he's an ArchNemesis with JokerImmunity and that Mr. Incredible wouldn't dare interrupt his evil gloating, leaving him open for the aforementioned flung car.]]

[[folder:Mirage]]
[[quoteright:204:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrs__incredirage2_7098.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Elizabeth Pena

A mysterious and alluring woman who approaches Bob with a chance to use his powers once again through confidential hero work, only to be revealed as TheDragon.
----
* AffairHair: Played with. Helen only ''thinks'' that this is what happened when she finds one of Mirage's hairs on Bob's super suit.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Has a significantly darker skin color than any other character besides Frozone, as well as unidentifiable accent.
%%* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The Blonde to Violet's Brunette and Helen's Redhead.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: See Ambiguously Brown, above, and add in her silver hair.
* EnemyMine: She and Helen have a rocky relationship in the comics, but cooperate while facing Xerek.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: She might have helped Syndrome with his EvilPlan, which involved [[spoiler: killing a lot of supers]], but she was clearly horrified when she learned that the plane Helen was in had children in it and visibly saddened when they were thought to be dead. [[spoiler: That's one of the reasons she had a HeelFaceTurn later]]
* FemmeFatale: "Mysterious and alluring woman."
* HartmanHips: Just like Mrs. Incredible, by an amazing coincidence. Does Bob have a type?
* {{Hypocrite}}: Horrified at the idea of killing kids... despite having cheerfully helped a serial killer murder dozens of supers, several of whom probably had kids.
%%* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling
* InLoveWithTheMark: It's heavily implied by her expression when Bob hugs her that she grows to genuinely like Bob, even though at first she was manipulating him.
* KarmaHoudini: Sure, [[spoiler: she turns good in the end]], but she's never punished for helping Syndrome's EvilPlan.
** Seeing as all of Syndrome's assets are frozen, it is safe to assume she turned whistleblower to avoid jail time.
* [[spoiler:MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: She didn't take kindly to Syndrome carelessly gambling her life when Mr. Incredible took her as a hostage.]]
* [[spoiler:MookFaceTurn: A dragon rather than a mook but still joins up with the heroes.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Enters this after Syndrome bombs Elastigirl's plane with Dash and Violet onboard.
* VagueAge: She looks young, but it's pretty hard to tell her exact age range.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: We never see what happens to her in the movie, but in the BOOM comics she joins the government agency as a spy..
* WouldntHurtAChild: She won't stoop to harming children.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Omnidroid]]

* AIIsACrapshoot: The Omnidroid "got smart enough to wonder why it had to take orders" and turned against its makers. [[spoiler:In reality, this was a lie, and the Omnidroids Mr. Incredible fights were under Syndrome's control the whole time. However, the final Omnidroid really ''does'' turn against its master - it got smart enough to wonder why it had to take orders from Syndrome. Or, rather, figured out Syndrome was obstructing its attacks with his remote control device and decided to fix that.]]
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: It will take note of repeated tactics and devise a way to counter them.
* [[spoiler: DragonAscendant: In the climax, the final version defeats Syndrome and becomes the greater threat.]]
* [[spoiler:HeroKiller: That's what it was built for and how it was tested.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The first Omnidroid fought is destroyed by [[spoiler:Bob climbing inside it, causing it to attack itself to get to him.]] The second time, [[spoiler:Bob uses its own claws to pierce a hole in it.]]
* NighInvulnerability: The Omnidroid doesn't flinch at anything the Incredibles or the Army throws at it. An earlier version even survives being submerged [[ConvectionSchmonvection in lava]]. The only thing that can damage it is [[spoiler:its own claws]].
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The eighth model had blue eyes, the ninth has orange [[TookALevelInBadass (hinting at its ascendence in badassery)]], so the final and most dangerous production model has red.
* TookALevelInBadass: The first model to appear in the film is beaten by just Mr. Incredible, [[spoiler:which could have taken out all previous heroes]]. It took the whole Incredible family and Frozone to beat the final product.
* WeaksauceWeakness: [[spoiler:Syndrome's remote control.]] It immediately recognizes that it's being controlled and quickly attempts to destroy it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Bomb Voyage]]
* EnemyMime: Though he isn't mute.
* FrenchJerk: French name and throwing bombs certainly qualifies him as a jerk.
* GratuitousFrench: His name. All of his spoken lines are in French as well.
* MadBomber: Again, his name.
* PunnyName: Of the French phrase ''bon voyage'' or 'pleasant journey'. (His early names were even sillier.)
* WouldHarmAChild: Threw a bomb onto Buddy's cape, sure Mr. Incredible would let him slip away to deal with it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Underminer]]
* BadassBoast: "Behold, the Underminer! I'm always beneath you, but nothing is beneath me! I hereby declare war on peace and happiness! Soon, all will tremble before me!"
* CardCarryingVillain: See his badass boast.
* {{Expy}}: Of Marvel Character "Mole Man"
* IncomingHam: "BEHOLD, THE UNDERMINER!"
* Creator/PixarRegulars: John Ratzenberger.
* ThisIsADrill: His main weapon is a giant mining drill.
* TunnelKing: Makes his entrance by tunneling up through the street.
