-> '''Voiced by:''' Peter Sallis; Ben Whitehead (''Grand Adventures'' and TV spots)
* AbsentMindedProfessor: He's an inventor who is eccentric.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: In ''Grand Adventures'', he shows no romantic feelings for Felicity Flitt even when she starts developing interest in him in Episode 3, and he's rather shocked when he [[AccidentalProposal accidentally proposed to her]] and spends much of Episode 4 trying to undo this. He's shown to be quite relieved when Flitt gets back with [=Duncan McBiscuit=] in the end.
* AntiHero: [[spoiler: As the Were-Rabbit]].
* BaldOfAwesome: He has no hair and his inventions can be pretty impressive.
** HairTodayGoneTomorrow: According to ''Curse Of the Were-Rabbit'', he had a full head of long hair when Gromit was a puppy. He lost it by the time Gromit finished college.
* BunglingInventor: Most of his inventions backfire on him.
* ButtMonkey: Gets hurt by his own inventions.
* CatchPhrase:
** "[=CheeeeEEEEeeeeeeeese=]!" (with Wallace's trademark excited hands).
** Also, once things inevitably fall apart, Wallace's "GROMIT! HELP! DO SOMETHING!," or the less emphatic "Gromit! Do something, lad!" There's no ceiling on how many times Wallace will say this in a single episode.
* CharacterTic: Often waves his fists whenever he's excited.
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
%%* {{Deuteragonist}}: Has moments of this.
* DitzyGenius: He's undeniably smart, but he lacks common sense.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: Despite ShipTease with three female characters in three different stories, Wallace has never gotten together with anyone.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: As the Were-Rabbit]].
%%* GadgeteerGenius
* GeniusDitz: He's a terrific inventor, but a bit slow to pick up on some things that are more obvious to others.
* IdenticalGrandson: To Witlace in ''Grand Adventures''.
* MadScientist: A heroic example. Wallace's inventions range from malfunctioning Rube Goldberg-esque devices to clever and groundbreaking gadgets which also have a tendency to malfunction. Notably, he seems more competent in the feature film than in most of the shorts.
* MeaningfulName: Wallace can be diminutised as "Wally", a slang term for a naïve or foolish person.
* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: A window-cleaner in ''A Close Shave'', and a baker in ''A Matter of Loaf and Death''. In ''Curse Of the Were-Rabbit'', a humane pest-control business. In the ''Grand Adventures'' games, a beekeeper, runner of an indoor holiday resort, ice-cream vendor and detective.
* NiceGuy: Perhaps the friendliest and most mild-mannered version of the MadScientist trope out there!
* OhCrap: Has this reaction a lot, especially when his inventions go haywire. Most notably [[spoiler: when he realizes he's the Were-Rabbit.]]
** In the first short, it's when he realizes [[SeriousBusiness he forgot to bring crackers]].
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: [[spoiler: When he turns into the Were-Rabbit.]]
* PungeonMaster: Makes puns frequently.
* ScienceHero: More often then not turns to science for any given problem.
* TooDumbToLive: More and more after each short, though he did find out [[spoiler: Piella was a serial killer]] when Gromit shows him the bomb in ''A Matter of Loaf of Death''.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Wallace can be stubborn or selfish on occasions but they are all inadvertently and unintentional.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Cheese, particularly Wensleydale, is Wallace's favorite, which he always has with crackers. Also, his breakfast of choice seems to be jam on toast.
* UndyingLoyalty: After Gromit is framed for murder and awaiting life imprisonment, Wallace wastes little time concocting a breakout. He also tries to save Gromit when he gets captured by Monty Muzzle.

* AcePilot: As seen in A Close Shave and The Curse of The Were-Rabbit in a ShoutOut to Snoopy in Peanuts.
* ActionPet: He could technically be considered Wallace's pet and does a lot more traditionally heroic things than his master.
* BadassAdorable: Gromit isn't just a loyal dog, he's so fiercely loyal that it'll take a lot to take him down. He's also quite cute.
* BeleagueredAssistant: He tends to wind up on the wrong end of some of the things Wallace instigates.
* BigOlUnibrow: Gromit never speaks, so this is the only way you know what he's feeling. It's really incredible, the emotion you can wring out of an artfully-squashed bit of plasticine...
* ButtMonkey: Misfortunes happen to Gromit a lot.
* CivilizedAnimal: He's bright and perceptive, but is treated as an ordinary dog. He also seems to have the psychology of a dog, if his devotion to Wallace is any indicator.
* CloudCuckoolandersMinder: He spends a lot of time rescuing Wallace from his own predicaments.
* DeadpanSnarker: While Gromit is usually a SilentSnarker, the duo's mutual diary - published as the Cheese Lover's Yearbook - has little typewritten notes expressing Gromit's reaction to whatever is happening. After the entries for "A Close Shave":
-->'''Wallace:''' Relieved to have come out of this in one piece.\\
'''Gromit:''' Instead of several hundred, like Preston. - G\\

* TheEngineer: Often has to build and use the inventions that Wallace dreams up.
* ExpressiveEars: His second most-expressive feature.
* HypercompetentSidekick: He is Wallace's assistant and is responsible for at least some of the daily work of running the household, helping with Wallace's inventions, and pulling Wallace's fat out of the fire. In ''Project Zoo'', he's even the main playable character.
* IdenticalGrandson: To Gimlet in ''Grand Adventures''.
* IntellectualAnimal: He's very smart!
* InTouchWithHisFeminineSide: Gromit is a very sensitive individual who isn't afraid to cry when things really get bad, and has a love for knitting.
%%* TheJeeves
* MeaningfulName: A grommet is a rubber ring used to seal the edge of a hole, to stop it chafing the insulation of wires passed through the hole.
* NiceGuy: Gromit is good-hearted and eternally loyal as well as protective towards Wallace.
* NoMouth: Most likely the reason why he's TheSpeechless.
* {{Protagonist}}:
** Despite being the assistant and Wallace getting top billing, Gromit is always the more focused one.
** He is the player character in Project Zoo.
%%* OnlySaneMan:
* SilentPartner: He is Wallace's fellow worker and never speaks.
* SilentSnarker: The TropeCodifier and current page image. Being wordless doesn't mean he can't convey sarcasm.
%%* SpeechImpairedAnimal
* TheSpeechless: He never speaks, save for the occasional bark. But that's not to say he's inexpressive.
* UndyingLoyalty: Even upon the discovery of [[spoiler:Wallace being the Were-Rabbit]], Gromit is fiercely loyal to his master.

%%* [[NotEvenHuman Not Even A Dog]]
* RobotDog: He's a robotic dog.
* VillainousBreakdown: In the climax, [[LiteralMinded literally]].

!![[WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep Shaun the Sheep]]

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: A perpetually eating GeniusDitz in the ''WallaceAndGromit'' series. An anthropomorphised LoveableRogue in his own series.
* AnthropomorphicShift: While having some moments of brilliance, Shaun was more a standard destructive animal in ''A Close Shave''. When branched out into his own show, Shaun evolved into a level of human-like intelligence almost on par with Gromit, was granted a more expressive personality and more became far more liable to walk on his hind legs.

* IntellectualAnimal: A mild case in ''WallaceAndGromit'', a full on example in his own series.
* LoveableRogue: In his own series.
* PunnyName: Shaun rhymes with "shorn" (as in "sheared") in non-rhotic varieties of English.
* SilentSnarker: Like Gromit, he has his moments of conveying sarcasm.
* TheSpeechless: Although he does bleat quite frequently.

!!Lady Campanula Tottington
-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/HelenaBonhamCarter
* FriendToAllLivingThings: She is rarely unfriendly to anyone or anything
* HeroesWantRedheads: She is a redhead and Wallace falls for her.
* NiceGirl: She's very friendly and hates for anything to be harmed, which attracts her to Wallace's humane pest control service and puts her at odds with Victor.
* PunnyName:
** "Tottie" is UK slang for an attractive young woman.
** Even more subtly, "Campanula" is the Latin name for the harebell. [[OverlyLongGag Just in case there weren't enough bunny puns in this movie]].

!!Lord Victor Quartermaine
-> '''Voiced by:''' Ralph Fiennes
* BaldOfEvil: Victor wears a toupee to cover his baldness and is the antagonist of the film.
** Quartermaine is also the second [[BaldOfEvil bald villain]] that Fiennes would portray as he would also play [[Franchise/HarryPotter Lord Voldemort]] since The Goblet of Fire.
* BigBad: Of ''The Curse of the Were-Rabbit''.
%%* EgomaniacHunter
%%* EvilPoacher

* TheRival: He and Wallace are both interested in Lady Tottington, although for different reasons.

-> '''Voiced by:''' Peter Sallis

* AnimalTalk: One of the only ones in the franchise.

* HeliumSpeech: His voice is really Wallace's in higher pitch.
%%* MeaningfulName
%%* TalkativeLoon

%%* BlackWidow
%%* CruellaToAnimals
* DisproportionateRetribution: She lost her job as the Bake-o-Lite bakery spokeswoman when she became too heavy to use the balloon featured in all their commercials. Because of this, [[spoiler: she decides to murder a baker's dozen worth of bakers to punish all bakers for producing the rich foods that she got fat eating.]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: [[spoiler: Being eaten alive by crocodiles at the zoo, after she weighs down the balloon on which she's attempting to escape. Thankfully GoryDiscretionShot is in play.]]
* FatComicRelief: [[spoiler: Though one of the darkest villains in the series, they still manage to make a fair amount of humor concerning her weight problem.]]
* FormerlyFit: Used to be a lean and skinny woman. However, her binging in bread is what made her so overweight to this day.
* HurricaneOfPuns: She makes many, ''incredibly'' unsubtle jokes [[spoiler: on how she's going to murder Wallace.]]

%%* {{Jerkass}}

-> '''Voiced by:''' Melissa Collier
* BreakTheCutie: Fluffles comes pre-broken, evident from the trembling. Though she eventually overcomes it.
* CivilizedAnimal: Fluffles is capable like Gromit, though she's generally shown on all fours for much of the film. Notably, her moments of bipedalism happen either out of the sight of her abusive master, or at the film's end when she finally stands up to her and remains bipedal for the rest of the film.
* CuteMute: Like Gromit, she never speaks (though she makes more sounds, like whimpering). She's also quite adorable.
* TheDogBitesBack: Fluffles, the mistreated poodle belonging to the 'Cereal Killer', not only bites back but then proceeds to take the killer on with a fork lift truck
%%* EpiphanyTherapy
%%* GuiltRiddenAccomplice
