Her full name, Minerva Mouse, is given in the [[ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse comic strip]] story "The Gleam" by Merrill De Maris and Floyd Gottfredson and published from January 19 to May 2, 1942.

In many appearances, Minnie was presented as [[MickeyMouse Mickey's]] girlfriend, a close friend to Daisy Duck, and/or a friend to Clarabelle Cow.

!!Tropes That Apply to Minnie:

* AlliterativeName
* CuteButCacophonic: Adorable in several instances, but her voice [[TastesLikeDiabetes can grate on your nerves.]]
* DemotedToExtra: She co-starred with Mickey in most of his black and white shorts, but once DonaldDuck started appearing in Mickey shorts, she began appearing less and less.
* DependingOnTheArtist: She was originally topless, but she's been depicted over the years as either topless or fully clothed.
* DistaffCounterpart
* DistressedDamsel
* DamselOutOfDistress: In quite a few shorts.
* ChasteToons: She has twin nieces named Millie and Melody
* FullyDressedCartoonAnimal: DependingOnTheArtist.
* FurryConfusion: She has a pet kitten named {{Figaro}}.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Again, DependingOnTheArtist.
* HotterAndSexier: in a ''way'' different way than what one would expect, as the years have gone by, Disney has added several instances of her emphasizing her hips, making naughty Jokes, and generally being more saucy in nature. RunawayBrain has her shopping for swimsuits and teasing a Julius-possessed Mickey, and several bits of artwork cards in ''Videogame/DisneyMagicalWorld'' have her in lightly suggestive poses.
* TheIngenue
* NiceHat: In the really early ClassicDisneyShorts.
* NiceMice
* OfficialCouple: With Mickey Mouse.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: While she's always sweet-natured, she encourages Mickey to rip Julius' ears off in RunawayBrain and [[FreakyFridayFlip Julius was still in Mickey's body]] when she said that.
* PinkMeansFeminine: One of her favored colors, especially recently.
* RodentsOfUnusualSize
* SatelliteCharacter: Really doesn't have much of a personality outside of her interactions with Mickey and co.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple
* TrueBlueFemininity: It was not uncommon to see her wearin blue in older appearances. In the last 30 years she's began leaning toward pink and red though.
* SpeciesSurname
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics
