[[folder: Muppets]]

!!Bean Bunny
->Steve Whitmire
->Debut: ''The Tale of the Bunny Picnic'' (1986)

Created for a one-off [=HBO=] special, Bean Bunny went on to become a recurring character in ''The Jim Henson Hour'' and late-period ''Muppet Babies'', and had a major role in ''Muppet*Vision 3D''. He's childlike and cute, he knows it...and he uses it to curry sympathy when his attempts to help the show go awry.

* ChewToy: In most Muppet productions, when he appears, it's to get clobbered or otherwise go through some sort of physical abuse. Usually this is played for laughs, but in ''Film/AMuppetChristmasCarol'', one scene turns him into a deeply tragic character, when after having gone through his usual comical clobberings (delivered by Scrooge), he is [[MoodWhiplash revealed to be homeless and shivering in the cold winter night]].
* DemotedToExtra: After the early 1990's.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal
* KidAppealCharacter: A parody.
* MrImagination: In ''The Tale of the Bunny Picnic''.
* PingPongNaivete
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Scooter even comments that "Cute is his middle name" in ''The Muppets at Walt Disney World''. ("Actually, it's Norman," Bean replies.)

!!Clifford
->Kevin Clash
->Debut: ''Series/TheJimHensonHour'' (1989)

Part of the [=MuppetTelevision=] crew at his debut, Clifford went on to be the host/straight man of ''Muppets Tonight'' in 1997.

* [[AmbiguouslyBrown Ambiguously Purple]]
* CoolShades: He couldn't wear them on ''Series/MuppetsTonight'', much to Kevin Clash's chagrin.
* DemotedToExtra: He was the last Muppet designed by Jim Henson and it seems they had something planned for this guy. But after ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' went off the air...
** He actually started off as an AscendedExtra, as a new member of the band in some later specials (including ''The Muppets at Walt Disney World'') and then got promoted to a main character for ''Series/MuppetsTonight''. Now he's come full-circle...
** But now that Kevin Clash has resigned, who knows what will happen?
* DreadlockRasta
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He looks a lot like Bob Marley.
* NotSoStoic: The formerly cool-as-a-glacier Clifford tended to lose his composure under the stress of being a TV host.
* TheGhost: Clifford's girlfriend, whom he's constantly talking to over the phone.
* TheUtterlyAndCompletelyDefinitiveGuideToCool: So he says.

!!Digit
->Dave Goelz
->Debut: ''Series/TheJimHensonHour''
* AIIsACrapshoot
* EarlyBirdCameo: Was in Jim Henson's original pilot of ''The Jim Henson Hour'', titled ''Inner Tube TV''. Digit was the keyboard player for the all-new band and had a more-robotic voice. Digit is also the only Muppet from said pilot to remain on board when the show was changed to ''The Jim Henson Hour''.
* RobotBuddy
* UnexpectedCharacter: After two decades of absence, he randomly showed up again in the video game ''Muppets Party Cruise''.

!!Waldo C. Graphic
->Steve Whitmire
->Debut: ''Series/TheJimHensonHour''
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* ConspicuousCGI
* FadSuper: ''Ride/MuppetVision3D'' was his finest hour (and it still plays at Disney theme parks to this day), but his VR manipulation and outdated CGI gave Waldo a short shelf life indeed. You'd think with 3-D movies being all the rage these days, he'd be primed for a comeback...
* FunPersonified
* MeaningfulName: He's a computer ''graphic'' controlled by a puppeteer wearing ''waldos''.
* {{Shapeshifter}}

!!The Elvises
->Debut: ''Muppets Classic Theatre''
* ElvisImpersonator: The Elvises have had many Muppeteers over the years, all of whom count as these. Part of the fun is hearing the subtle differences between the different performers' imitations.
* ElvisLives: And there are three of him! [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight Nobody finds this odd.]]
* ElvishPresley: In their debut, they were the stars of a rather unconventional telling of ''The Elves and the Shoemaker'', thanks to Rizzo initially mishearing the title.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: They don't really interact with the main cast much. They appear, rock out, and leave.

!!Pepe the '''King''' Prawn
->Bill Barretta
->Debut: ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* AscendedExtra: Became an ascended extra starting with ''Muppets From Space'', but came full circle when he was DemotedToExtra for the 2011 movie.
* BreakoutCharacter: One of the very few post-1990 Muppet characters to become a full-fledged member of the core cast.
* TheCasanova: Although sometimes he is a...
** CasanovaWannabe
* {{Catchphrase}}: UN-believable!
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Film/TheMuppets''. [[WolverinePublicity He was featured pretty prominently in some of the trailers]], but it turns out most of that footage came from the one scene he was in that remained in the final cut.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: More than any of the cast in modern Muppet productions.
* InsistentTerminology: Don't call him a shrimp.
* JustAStupidAccent: Why is he Spanish? No special reason. ([[http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Pepe_the_King_Prawn The actual reason is Bill Barretta based the voice on his wife's aunt]].)
* LovableSexManiac
* {{Malaproper}}: Related to:
* TheNicknamer
* ThoseTwoGuys: He and Rizzo become this in some of the more modern productions like ''Letters to Santa''.
* VerbalTic, okay?
* WolverinePublicity: A few instances, but the worst was when Disney had him host the special features of the [=DVDs=] of four Muppet movies produced ''before'' his creation.

!!Bobo Bear
->Bill Barretta
->Debut: ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* AscendedExtra: The ONLY ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' Muppet to appear for more than one scene or crowd shot in the 2011 film.
* BearyFunny
* BearsAreBadNews: Well, not really.
* BreakoutCharacter: One of the very few post-1990 Muppet characters to become a full-fledged member of the core cast.
* DeadpanSnarker: Deadpan ''everything''.
* TheDitz
* GentleGiant: Like Fozzie, he's more of a teddy bear than a menacing one.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: In two separate movies now.
* SmallNameBigEgo

!!Johnny Fiama
->Bill Barretta (detecting a freakin ''pattern'' here?)
->Debut: ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* CasanovaWannabe
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome / DemotedToExtra: After 2005.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Sal Minella.
* LoungeLizard
* MeaningfulName: Fiama is an anagram of Mafia, a reference to the rumor that Frank Sinatra achieved fame through his underworld connections.
* MommasBoy: Johnny Fiama loves his mama.
* {{UST}}: With [[spoiler:Miss Piggy]], of all people.

!!Sal Minella
->Brian Henson
->Debut: ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome / DemotedToExtra: After 2005.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Johnny Fiama.
* ThoseTwoGuys: He and Johnny are practically inseparable.
* UnfortunateName

!!Seymour
->Brian Henson
->Debut: ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Hey everybody, remember when Pepe had an elephant sidekick?
* DoggedNiceGuy: Compared to Pepe, it was no question who the more interesting one was.
* LesserStar

!!Dr. Phil Van Neuter
->Brian Henson
->Debut: ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* FreudianExcuse: This guy's been messed up his whole life.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Mulch. Although the "heterosexual" part gets a little murky when you see that Phil's wife, Composta Heap, is essentially Mulch in drag...
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* MadDoctor
* SissyVillain

!!Big Mean Carl
->Bill Barretta
->Debut: ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* BigEater
* BreakoutCharacter: Like Pepe the King Prawn and Bobo the Bear, he is one of the very few post-1990 Muppets who is still a prominent recurring character in Muppet productions, albeit not as prominently as Pepe or Bobo.
* ComedicSociopathy
* ExtremeOmnivore: As all good Muppet monsters are.
* FlatCharacter
* JerkAss

!!Walter
->Peter Linz
->Debut: ''Film/TheMuppets'' (2011)

* {{Adorkable}}
* AscendedFanboy: The lucky guy gets to meet his idols, help them come back to relevance and even gets a part in their telethon and becomes a member of the gang!
* AudienceSurrogate: As Tough Pigs put it, "(...)Walter is us. I related with his character so much, I practically expected him to say that he runs his own website for Muppet Fans Who Grew Up."
* {{Fanboy}}: Of the Muppets.
** FridgeLogic: ... when he is a Muppet himself. Not that he knew that to begin with, anyway.
*** Though part of the reason he likes the Muppets in the first place is because they're the only ones out there like him.
* {{Keet}}: He's very excitable and energetic, especially when fanboying.
%%* HiddenTalents: He can whistle, but he didn't think of it as a talent until he was put on the spot and had to do something to fill time.
* NiceGuy: Walter is very kind and friendly to others.
* ObliviousAdoption: {{Averted}}. The film never even addresses how human Gary and Muppet Walter are brothers.
** According to Jason Segel, they just decided the audience will [[MST3KMantra go with it]], like in TheGreatMuppetCaper the people just went with the idea of Fozzie and Kermit been identical twin brothers.
* OriginalGeneration
* OutOfFocus: Walter's back for ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'', but the classic Muppets seem to play a bigger role than him this time around.
** It turns out to only be partially true; he's out of focus for the first act of the movie but plays a much larger role later on.
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: Walter is [[OriginalGeneration a brand-new Muppet created for the film]], and is described as a plain brown Whatnot. [[{{Deconstruction}} He's not exactly a fan of how generic he is]].
* StageFright: So bad he managed to [[ImpactSilhouette make a Walter-shaped hole in a brick wall]] when running away.
* VictorianNovelDisease: Prone to fainting when he gets overexcited or overstimulated, despite being able to withstand an electric fence shocking him. He faints seeing Kermit in the flesh and after waking up, he's told he was brought into Kermit's ''house'', immediately fainting again (albeit much more briefly).

!!80's Robot
->Matt Vogel
->Debut: ''Film/TheMuppets'' (2011)
* ArtificialIntelligence
* ComputerVoice
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Muppets Most Wanted'', where he doesn't have any lines at all.
* DiscoDan: Apparently never got the input code that TAB and New Coke are out of vogue.
* DoAnythingRobot
* TheEighties
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: He's one of the rare Muppets not to have any mouth where the puppeteer's hand can operate from, he's basically all remote-controlled by someone off-screen. If he were to appear in any other movie, audiences wouldn't think of him as a Muppet at all.
* RoboSpeak
* RobotMaid: Introduced as a butler for Kermit when he is found living in his mansion. Assumed to act as someone Kermit can talk to without being completely lonely... [[RoboSpeak to an extent.]]

!!Constantine
->Debut: ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'' (2014)

The world's most dangerous frog. He just so happens to look exactly like Kermit the Frog, save for a mole on his face.

* {{Badass}}: Repugnant and cruel as he may be, you have to be when you take out several Russian soldiers nonlethally, while being a frog. [[spoiler:Miss Piggy is out of his league, however]].
* BigBad: Of Muppets Most Wanted.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He's fully aware that [[spoiler:Dominic despises him and wants to turn against him]]. His solution is simple- [[spoiler:wait for Dominic to grab the Crown Jewels, then knock him out the helicopter and leave him for the authorities]].
* FauxAffablyEvil: Constantine is only polite because he needs to be to keep the Muppets on his side.
* HatesBeingTouched: He really doesn't like it, and barely puts up with it because it's crucial to his plans.
* {{Jerkass}}: How do the other gulag prisoners know that Kermit isn't him? Constantine apparently ''never'' says thank you for anything.
* KickTheDog: While his treatment of Dominic is kind of funny, it's also rather cruel. There's also framing Kermit for his escape, and [[spoiler:arranging a wedding with Miss Piggy which he would almost certainly have broken off]].
** TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:Dominic tries to betray him. Key word being tries. Piggy has more luck, effortlessly slapping him around a helicopter.]]
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: "The most dangerous frog in the world" (which, as Piggy points out in the climax, isn't really saying much).
* PaperThinDisguise: Lampshaded when some of the Muppets find out eventually. Kermit is ''not'' pleased.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Demonstrates extreme stage fright. [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy He quickly overcomes it so it doesn't interfere with his plans.]]

[[folder:Human Movie Characters]]

!!Doc Hopper
->Charles Durning
->Debut: ''Film/TheMuppetMovie'' (1979)

Proprietor of a French-fried frog legs fast food franchise, Doc Hopper sees Kermit the Frog as the ideal spokesman for his product. Kermit refuses to shill for him, but Hopper ''really'' won't take no for an answer...

* BigBad
* FatSweatySouthernerInAWhiteSuit

!!Max
->Austin Pendleton
->Debut: ''Film/TheMuppetMovie''

Doc Hopper's somewhat nerdy assistant brought Kermit to his boss's attention after seeing the frog not only ride a bicycle, but also perform with Fozzie Bear at El Sleezo's Cafe. He's initially supportive of Hopper's attempts to make Kermit a spokesfrog, but soon enough he's only sticking with the bad guy for the money, and even that motivation only goes so far...

* MinionWithAnFInEvil

!![[Literature/AChristmasCarol Ebenezer Scrooge]]
->Creator/MichaelCaine
->Debut: ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'' (1992)
* AntiHero: Pretty much the same tropes from the original book can fit him here.
* CatchPhrase: "Bah Humbug!" of course.
* HeelFaceTurn

!![[TreasureIsland Jim Hawkins]]
->Debut: ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland''

!![[TreasureIsland Long John Silver]]
->TimCurry
->Debut: ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland''
* AntiVillain
* BigBad
* [[spoiler: KarmaHoudini: Or not, considering his escape boat sprang a leak. Even if he did manage to swim back to Treasure Island, the treasure itself would have been lost either way.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LargeHam: See who plays him above!
* LovableRogue
* {{Pirate}}
* VillainSong: "Professional Pirate".

!!Gary
->Creator/JasonSegel
->Debut: ''Film/TheMuppets''

* BigBrotherMentor: To Walter.
* HeroesWantRedheads: With Mary.
** HotForTeacher: Again, with Mary.
* TheLancer: To Walter.
* NiceGuy: Very kind and supportive of his brother, Walter.

!!Mary
->AmyAdams
->Debut: ''Film/TheMuppets''

* CoolTeacher: Her students even simultaneously admit they'll miss her during their two-week Spring Break.
* DeusExMachina: [[spoiler: When the Muppet Theater loses power during the telethon, she abruptly appears to repair the fuse box.]]
** ChekhovsGunman: Her knowing how to fix the fuse box was forshadowed early on, when she's teaching kids how to repair cars. It's her sudden appearance when she was in another state that makes it DeusExMachina.
* {{Foil}}: Arguably to Miss Piggy -- then "Me Party" shows that the two aren't so different.
* HeroesWantRedheads: AmyAdams, natch.
* HotTeacher
* NiceGirl: Mary is friendly and kind, although she does have her limits.

!!Tex Richman
->Chris Cooper
->Debut: ''Film/TheMuppets''

The prospect of oil under the site of the old ''Muppet Show'' theater prompts this billionaire to buy the building under the guise of turning it into a museum. When the good guys learn of his scheme to raze it, their quest to raise enough money to buy it back begins. He's got all the trappings of a classic kiddie-movie villain...except the EvilLaugh.

* AxCrazy: Not in the sense that he wants to kill anyone, but near the end of the movie he becomes hellbent on destroying everything in his path to ruin the Muppets' career.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:Technically, since the Muppets ''do'' fail to meet their goal of raising ten million dollars. In the end, it doesn't matter, due to his bowling ball-induced HeelFaceTurn.]]
* BigBad
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* FreudianExcuse: A deleted scene depicts a young Richman discovering his inability to laugh while watching the Muppets, causing his friends to mock him. He swore revenge on the Muppets for bringing about his humiliation.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Thanks to Gonzo's bowling ball.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: Taller than any of his Muppets, not that it says much.
* LargeHam
* PissTakeRap: His VillainSong.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: When fencing, he throws his foil at his expensive flat-screen TV and destroys it once he hears about the Muppet Telethon on the news.

!!Dominic Badguy
->Ricky Gervais
->Debut: ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted''
Constantine's right-hand man, Dominic gets tangled up with the Muppets even before his boss does, suggesting that they go on a world tour and kicking off the movie's plot.

* AffablyEvil: He's surprisingly polite, all things considered.
* BeardOfEvil: Ricky Gervais keeps his beard for the role.
* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:His efforts to overthrow Constantine end terribly, and he's ultimately laughed into prison.]]
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:He attempts to betray Constantine because he treats him horribly. It doesn't work.]]
* TheDragon: To Constantine.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: He doesn't like his boss, however.
* EvilBrit: For a given measure of "evil", given how he's rather affable.
* HyperCompetentSidekick: He does the lion's share of his and Constantine's activities, from heists to keeping up the charade that Constantine is Kermit. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, betrayal is one of the few areas he's lacking in.]]
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: [[spoiler:His failed betrayal is partly out of greed, but mainly because Constantine treated him like rubbish]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Downplayed, but someone called "Dominic Badguy" probably isn't the most heroic character. He manages to persuade the Muppets that it's pronounced "badge-ee".
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:His betrayal may have ended disastrously, but it did slow Constantine down]].
* TheStarscream: As explained in his VillainSong duet with Constantine [[spoiler: and later demonstrated during Dominic's attempted coup, key word being "attempted"]].

!!Nadya
->Creator/TinaFey
->Debut: ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted''

A feisty Russian prison guard who loves Broadway and has a crush on Kermit.

* GenreSavvy: Works out most of Kermit's escape plans owing to her watching many prison films on Netflix. [[spoiler:Breaking out with the cover of a show wasn't something she saw coming]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's a little rude and manipulative, but at the end of the film, [[spoiler:she lets Kermit go after realising that she'd take him away from his family if she took him back to prison]].
* StalkerWithACrush: It seemed Nadya quickly figured out Kermit wasn't the criminal that belonged in her gulag. But her StalkerShrine to Kermit in her locker implies she had her own reasons for keeping him in her gulag.
