Dave Seville’s a songwriter as well as the guardian of the Chipmunks and the Chipettes as of the second live action movie. While Dave struggles to remain calm and objective, Alvin often irritates him, causing Dave to yell "Alvin!" to which Alvin responds with "Okay!" Dave plays piano and the guitar.

David ‘Dave’ Seville was originally Ross Bagdasarian’s stage name.
  • Berserk Button: Alvin often irritates him, resulting in Dave's famous yell, “ALVIN!!!!!” to which Alvin often replies with a loud "OKAY!!".
  • Butt-Monkey: The Straight Man to more than five decades of the boys' comedy.
  • Can’t Tie His Bow: Simon has to help him with his bow while they’re talking in Chipwrecked, as Dave’s getting ready to have dinner with the captain.
  • Catchphrase: Aside from his signature "AAAAAAAALVIIIIIIINNNNN!" scream, calling the boys "fellas".
  • Characterization Marches On: Depending on the medium, and the portrayer:
    • Bagdasarian (Sr.) — rather strict, overbearing and having a short fuse making him quick to losing his cool.
    • Bagdasarian (Jr.) — more laid back, easy going while still being easily flustered.
    • Lee — seemingly like a surrogate father-figure who’s trying to do his best.
  • Demoted to Extra: In the live-action movie. Due to a prop mishap during a charity concert crippling him in The Squeakquel, thus putting Dave out of commission for the rest of the movie, prompting him to send the Chipmunks with a relative. This is probably because Jason Lee was busy with My Name Is Earl at the time.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Even though he has had several girlfriends, he has yet to get a permament relationship. In every adaptation.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: The Realist.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Phlegmatic.
  • Friend to All Living Things: The reason why Vinny essentially left the boys at his doorstep in the 80s/90s cartoon show.
  • Good Parents: Though he is stressed out at times, Dave has always been a very loving and caring father. The Chipmunks have to remind him sometimes that even though they can be difficult for him, they wouldn't be the same without him.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: When Ross (Sr.) voiced him.
  • Hopeless with Tech: In the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks, Dave has to overcome his weakness with improving technology with the help of his boys, a notable difference from previous incarnations.
  • Inksuit Actor: The Alvin Show version is the supposed caricature of Ross (Sr.), sometimes having that vertical line on Dave's chin appear, kinda like how Bagdasarian has a slight dimple in his chin.
  • Parents as People: Despite considering him their father, the Chipmunks usually called him "Dave" and rarely "dad".
  • Role Reprisal: Despite Jason Lee being the new Dave Seville, Ross Jr. still provides his vocals on a couple of soundtracks.
  • Say My Name: He does this to Alvin a lot.
  • Spiky Hair: In Meet Frankenstein (though it may cross as anime hair) and Meet the Wolfman.
  • Stage Name: For Rostom “Ross” Bagdasarian.
  • Team Dad: As a stern, but loving father figure to the Chipmunks.

The Chipmunks

Three singing, anthropomorphic chipmunk brothers under the management and parental vision of Dave Seville.

    Trope as Trio 
  • A Cappella: Being singing chipmunks, it comes with the talent. Notable ones reside in the Alvin and the Chipmunks CGI film, where they give their great renditions of "Bad Day" and "Only You".
  • Baby Talk: In Little Alvin and the Mini-Munks.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • The Chipmunks saves an unconscious Stanley the Eagle in a nick of time before he could fall off a statue in the episode “Eagle in Love” of The Alvin Show.
    • Comes to “Frankie” the Frankenstein Monster’s defense at the end of Meet Frankenstein.
  • Birds of a Feather: When the Chipmunks are with their respective individual Chipette counterpart. However, Alvin and Brittany are the exception in that they verge towards Too Much Alike.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The CGI films began to embody this (Theodore is the lightest of his brothers, comparable to blond, while Simon is an apparent brunet with his fur, and Alvin comes in with reddish-brown fur) and now the CG-animated series has them with human hair similar to the Chipettes.
    • Blond = Theodore
    • Brunet = Simon
    • Redhead = Alvin
  • Boy Band: When they dwell into the Pop genre.
  • Cast Calculus: At six with The Chipettes.
  • Child Pop Stars: The Chipmunks' naturally set in as musical acts by choice, and their age throughout the incarnations range from children to teens (CGI films). Dave is their parental guardian, manager, and at times, producer.
  • Chromatic Arrangement: Trope Codifier if not Trope Namer:
    • Red = Alvin
    • Blue = Simon
    • Green = Theodore
  • Clothes Make the Legend: Overlaps with Limited Wardrobe. All three of the chipmunk brothers in general, but specifically Alvin. One half of a pair can wear green, the other half can wear blue, but there probably won't be much recognition unless there's that familiar, red piece of clothing with that huge, yellow letter "A".
  • Comic Trio
    • Moe = Alvin
    • Larry = Simon
    • Curly = Theodore
  • Cover Album: Majority of their discography, you can say.
  • Cover Version: The Chipmunks' modus operandi outside the fourth wall, as they cover music from well known artists or songs. Though they have come out with original music, and their CG-animated series have all original songs so far.
  • Disappeared Dad: Their biological father has never been seen, mentioned or referenced in the 80s/90s cartoon.
    • Disappeared Dad/Missing Mom: In the 2007 movie, Simon explains to Dave that chipmunks only care for their young for a week followed by Alvin stating their parents were hippies and left early to join a commune.
  • Distressed Dude: All of them in The Chipmunk Adventure.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: Simon and Theodore started off having little personality outside more well behaved counterparts to Alvin. Starting from the 80s series, they gain more individual spotlight and foibles of their own.
  • Door Stop Baby: Well, babies, but anyway, this is how Dave first met them in the 80s/90s show.
  • Freudian Trio:
  • Happily Adopted: To guess who.
  • Harmony: Got to give credit to the Bagdasarians, The Chipmunks can do some fantastic harmonies.
  • Nice Mean And In Between: Theodore is the nicest of the chipmunks, serving as the Morality Pet to Alvin, who is an egotistical Attention Whore. Simon stays inbetween due to him being the smart one and his constant bickering with Alvin.
  • Rock Trio: Although they tend to play the basic musical instruments of this trope, the three do occasionally play other instruments as well.
    • Guitar = Alvin
    • Keyboard/Bass = Simon
    • Drums = Theodore
  • Same-Sex Triplets: Self explainable. Chipmunks give birth in litters and The Chipmunks are one.
  • Self Backing Vocalists: The Chipmunks have done this quite a bit, but it's more prevalent with the more modern incarnations, like the music connected to the CGI films and the CG-animated show.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Title: The franchise is officially called ALVIN and The Chipmunks.
  • Unwitting Pawn: In Chipmunk Adventure.
  • Voice Types: Most fans can generally tell which chipmunk sings what, though the lines blur a few times when it comes to Alvin and Simon once Alvin goes into the lower end of his range. This is possible due to the difference of pitch in each brother and their own vocal tones. At the most basic Chipmunk equivalent of voice types -
    • Alvin = Lyric Tenor
    Note: Alvin's a vocalist who isn't limited to his general voice classification due to his extensive range and versatility. He can go as low as the lowest Baritone range.
    • Simon = Lyric Bass-Baritone
    • Theodore = Treble [more accurately, if older, a male Soprano or Countertenor]

The lead vocalist of the band and main character, Alvin is an impulsive and charming Attention Whore who always seems to make up hare-brained schemes to get what his goal is at the time, whether it be trying to help his brothers, keeping Dave from figuring something out, or getting out of a sticky situation.

  • The Ace: Pretty much this in The Alvin Show. Throughout the franchise as well in varying degrees - part of the popular/cool kids, musically gifted (a great vocalist, a good dancer, raps, reeks with charm and stage presence, and plays both the guitar and harmonica, among others), athletic (plays basketball, football, soccer, etc.), and has legit skateboarding skills. In short, he's crazy talented.
  • A Friend in Need: Alvin's there for those he cares about when he notices they're going through issues and/or are feeling down.
  • Agent Mulder: Aliens, monsters, zombies, conspirations...Alvin believes in everything, and this is often the source of problems in the family.
  • Anti-Hero: Alvin's flawed, but his heart bears no real evil, and he has set moral guidelines. He nonetheless lacks proper heroic traits that would bring to question a full The Hero status.
  • Attention Whore: And can get rather petulant if that attention is taken away.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Brittany.
  • Berserk Button: Although he doesn't go 'berserk' per se, he doesn't like his cap being touched.
  • Big Brother Instinct: For all of his faults, he looks out for and stands up for his brothers, mainly Theodore. In the Squeakquel, when the bullies are picking on Theodore. Er, actually when any bully is picking on either Theodore or Simon in general.
  • Big Little Brother: His original design was dwarfed by both of his "little" brothers. Likely to better brush off of their new personalities, meek and naive Theodore was designed to be diminutive to him, though the more mature Simon remained lankier than Alvin.
  • Brass Balls: Can get rather daring, even with authority figures...including his own surrogate father.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: He tends to use his loud mouth to make things difficult as an attempt to get his way.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Brought to You by the Letter ‘A’.
  • Brutal Honesty: Alvin's capable of serving it, at times unwittingly when he gets frustrated or annoyed. While some characters do need it, he can feel guilty if it does hurt someone's feelings.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Aw, nuts," "Yes, Dave?" and "Okay!"note 
  • Character Tic: Alvin tends to do fancy tricks between his fingers and hands with an object (be it apple, basketball, a game chip in Chipwrecked, etc.). They vary in twirls, roll over shoulders, spins, and throws/catches.
  • Chick Magnet: When he's not screwing things up with his latest Zany Scheme that is. Despite him being an anthropomorphic chipmunk, girls (yes, human girls) find him charming and cute. The Chipmunk Adventure had him be kissed full on the lips by a Mexican human girl and The Squeakquel, ironically where he's designed at his most realistic chipmunk form, highlighted a scene to highlight this status when he starts school.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Not as much as Simon, but definitely there.
  • Depending on the Writer: He can be a Kidanova, and usually very successful with girls, or a Casanova Wannabe when his scheme to win a girl's heart backfires on him.
  • Drama Queen: Sometimes manipulative, sometimes played for comedy, and sometimes ignored, but he tends to be the beggar and pleader of the franchise.
  • Ear Notch: His CGI self in the movie franchise, perhaps to identify him as the scrappiest member of the group.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Alvin may be a jerk at times, but there's simply lines he would not cross and he's inherently good. It's what sets him miles apart from the franchise's typical school bullies or antagonists.
  • Fatal Flaw: The major ones are his greed and egocentrism. Heck, majority of his Zany Schemes result from this.
  • Fiery Redhead: As of the CGI series. The same Hot-Blooded, emotional Drama Queen he's always been.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: He's the Foolish in comparison to Simon's more Responsible nature, who helplessly attempts to convince Alvin to not do what he plans to.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: The Optimist.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Choleric.
  • The Glorious War Of Brotherly Rivalry: Gender flipped. While it's more frequent on Simon's side, out of his brothers, it's usually him who Alvin feels any sense of threat towards. They're the closest of the siblings, but are habitually at odds with each other as well. Their relationship has been a big focus of the franchise, seeing as they are foils.
  • Glory Hound: Some of his plans are attempts at getting more famous or grabbing attention.
  • G-Rated Mental Illness: Succumbs to this when he’s forced to drink a potion in Meet Frankenstein where he starts acting like a typical insane cartoon character laughing manically, his tongue hanging out, spinning eyes, and pulling pranks. He gets better though.
  • Harsh Vocals: Alvin is quite the accomplished vocal impressionist and imitator. He can manipulate his voice to fit in with a music genre stylistically (being that The Chipmunks do Cover Versions of songs). So when the song calls for it, he tends to use harsh vocals (in the lesser extent of this, he's raspy).
  • The Hedonist: Most of the inspiration that motivates Alvin's actions is the inward desire for fun as well as the opportunity to get what he wants. There's little to no self control and he runs on impulse. Regarding the needs of others isn't on his mind at that point in time, and it can seep him into Jerk Ass territory in the moments he doesn't really aim to be a Jerk Ass. This is also the reason why he tends to make pretty simple, mundane things more complicated than they need to be.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: His most consistent romantic connection is with Brittany, who's a redhead. Songs in albums have even alluded them as being on and off.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Also Odd Couple with Simon, especially in Meet the Wolfman.
  • Hidden Depths: Revealed in a rare Big Ego, Hidden Depths episode, "Alvin in Analysis". Alvin's very self-assured, but it's shown he has his insecurities and it may be the reason why he inflates his own ego more than he should. He also seems to stand behind his talent, fame, and charm, because when he feels it's going awry in some way or when he feels he's not getting the spotlight, the layers of his own glorification peels off. And when it peels...well, the vindictive jerkass can lash out as a defense mechanism. He can plot against whoever is in the way. "Dr. Simon and Mr. Heartthrob" actually made this a focus point.
    Dr. Wisenheimer: Why is fame so important to you? What is it a substitute for, Alvin? What is it that you're afraid of?
  • High School Hustler: Though can be Elementary depending on what media you're going by.
  • Hot-Blooded: At times.
  • Incredibly Long Note: There's a genuine reason why he's lead vocal after all, franchise star perks aside. The 2007 movie played with it when they took The Chipmunks' cover of "Stayin' Alive" (from Club Chipmunk: The Dance Mixes) by making it about cheeseballs and having Alvin hit that long note as he went slow mo.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: His overblown sense of superiority stems from covering up the fact that he doesn't want to fail, as in, to fail himself, his family, or his friends. See Hidden Depths.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Alvin's way of reasoning. It baffles Simon specifically.
  • It's All About Me: He's pretty selfish at times, and enjoys attention greatly. He gets called out on this frequently.
  • It's All My Fault: Perhaps one of Alvin's best traits is that he can realize his own wrongdoings and how it affects others around him. He goes out of his way to make amends for them.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although Alvin is quite self-absorbed and can be a certified ass, he does care about his brothers and tends to turn things around as best he can once he knows he went too far. More so if any one of his siblings gets sad or disappointed by his actions. There's no personal goal to be purposefully malevolent (and when he is, although one can argue, it's more to sabotage than to hurt), he simply tends to get too ahead of himself without thinking of the possible impact it brings to those around him for the most part.
  • Kidanova: When he actually doesn't try too hard and doesn't have malign intentions (as they don't get rewarded when it comes to him).
  • Large Ham: Tends to over dramatize and exaggerate his feelings, ideas (as in, his active imagination), or what he says. Sometimes on purpose, sometimes not.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Has an immunity to Karma Houdini, refreshingly so. Dave also makes certain he does not go unscathed.
  • The Leader: He is the leader of the group and when together with The Chipettes, the leader of all six.
  • Likes Older Women: There's at least an episode in each series where he, if not outright flirting, gets a Precocious Crush on an older woman (usually a teacher and/or principal).
  • Lovable Rogue: His defining trait.
  • Manipulative Bastard: His smarts lie in manipulating people and how to make them do what he needs them to do. What that is depends on the ploy he cooks up that day. He certainly knows how to get reactions out from others and how to use them to his advantage at least. Simon and Brittany are a lot harder to fool (and they've struck back the times when they do realize what he's up to), but they still fall victim since he knows what strings to pull.
  • Middle Child Syndrome: Shades of it. He was the oldest (in the 80s series at least), but his archetype always fitted this in his trio of siblings. Alvin's the Black Sheep, the troublemaker, he acts out, he's loud, and lives for attention in comparison to his more moralistic, upright brothers. He also appears to have doubts in how Dave feels about him as a son in the films and the CG-animated series.
  • Mood-Swinger: He can change emotions pretty quickly, and his over dramatic reactions to almost everything places him as really high in enthusiasm or at the bottom in exaggerated despair.
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Alvin's a good kid at the core and plenty of examples show that, but he still suffers from various flaws; ambition, greed, hedonism, impulsiveness, pride, envy, selfishness, pettiness, etc.
  • Nice Hat: His trademark red cap.
  • Not So Different: When Simon loses his personality, Alvin has to become the authority figure in Chipwrecked. When he tries to stop Simon from dancing with Jeanette, this happens:
    Alvin: SIIMMOOOONN!!!!
    Brittany: Alvin, you're starting to sound like Dave.
    Alvin: NNNNOOO!
  • Phrase Catcher: “AAALLLLVVVVIIIN!”
  • The Protagonist: Of the entire franchise.
  • Role Reprisal: Ross (Jr.) still provides his singing voice for the live action theatrical movies as well as voicing him on new soundtracks.
  • Rounded Character: With Static Character. He harbors both good and bad qualities with some Hidden Depths, and his complexity is such that one can analyze and explore his established character traits in spades.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Color-Coded for Your Convenience. The red to Simon's blue.
  • Retcon: Is the youngest in the 60s cartoon, the oldest in the 80s cartoon and films, and the middle child in the 2015 cartoon.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Simon.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: The "small name" depends on the media, but the big ego is always consistent.
  • Snark-to-Snark Combat: With Simon and/or Brittany.
  • Temporarily a Villain: Often plays the villain in parody episodes or specials.
  • Too Much Alike: Him and Brittany. When you have two Attention Whores with big egos headbutting, getting along isn't on the list of priorities as much as besting each other is.
  • Tsundere: With Brittany. They are constantly at odds with one another and fight, but they do show that deep down they love each other.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: They're brothers, but this summarizes his and Simon's relationship verbatim. How they play off each other may be the most dynamic interaction of the main cast.

The tallest, Simon has an IQ north of Einstein, possessing a dry sense of humor as well as a keen wit. He takes charge when Alvin goes too far with his hairbrained schemes. Simon loves Alvin, although he secretly worries that they share the same gene pool.
  • Adorkable: He's smart, wears glasses, and is an adorable chipmunk, so of course he counts.
  • Agent Scully: He is often very skeptical about Alvin's crazy theories and with good reason.
  • Alliterative Name: The letters of his first and last name both begin with an "S".
  • Big Damn Heroes: In Meet Frankenstein, he arrives little late along with Frankie and Theodore to save Alvin from the potion forcibly given to him by Doktor Frankenstein that’ll make him into a zany cartoonish monster, but he does save his big brother before the process could be completed. Then later, when the potion Alvin underwent takes effect during the premiere, Simon makes an antidote to cure Alvin when he does turn into a monster.
  • Big Brother Instinct: When he sees the bullies picking on Theodore in The Squeakquel, despite telling Alvin violence will solve nothing just a second ago.
  • Big Little Brother: He's younger than Alvin in the 80s series, but is taller than him.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Completely and utterly blind without his glasses.
  • Brainy Brunet: His CGI incarnations, both films and cartoon.
  • Butt-Monkey: Sometimes.
  • Character Tic: Simon, whenever conversing about something serious, will remove his glasses, wipe them with a handkerchief, and then place them back on his face.
  • Characterization Marches On: The early Simon is very unlike the later one. In the original songs and The Alvin Show he's The Generic Guy with no standout personality traits except a slightly more advanced vocabulary than his brothers. The 80s cartoon more clearly establishes him as The Smart Guy from the start, but still fairly generic. It was the result of Janice Karman's increased focus on his development that turned him into the Deadpan Snarker he'd became known as.
  • Child Prodigy: Certified genius.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When the 80’s series came around Simon got snarkier as the series went on, from occasionally snarky in the first couple of seasons to practically every response being sarcastic.
  • The Drag-Along: Alvin often drags him unwillingly in his adventures.
  • Expressive Mask: See below.
  • Eye Glasses: In the 1960s series as well as in the Chipmunk Christmas special which doubles as expressive glasses.
  • The Everyman: In the 1960s series.
  • The Finicky One: Depending on the story he can misplace his sense of humor, or start as this before finding it.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: He's the responsible one to Alvin's foolishness. He's the one that knocks sense into his brother. Or tries to.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: The Cynic.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Melancholic.
  • The Generic Guy: In the 60s show.
  • The Glorious War Of Brotherly Rivalry: Gender flipped. See Hidden Depths.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Very much with Alvin in Meets the Wolfman, and arguably at other times, despite being an Odd Couple.
  • Hidden Depths: He can be just as vindictive and as petty as Alvin, and can be quite vengeful against him when Alvin uses him or the others as tools to a scheme (if he finds out), to teach him a deserved lesson. He's also shown Always Someone Better sentiments when it comes to his brother's huge popularity or natural charisma, expressing insecurities about how easily the spotlight comes to Alvin. This is quite consistent, as this is implied in Chipwrecked, becomes the plot point of "Dr. Simon and Mr. Heartthrob" (an important character driven episode for both him and Alvin) in the 80s series, and is practically prevalent in the CGI-series, with episodes like "Simon for President", "Simon the Superb", and "Munk Man".
  • Hollywood Nerd: His CGI counterpart voiced by Matthew Gray Gubler is portrayed as this. His fans see him as this as well, since they consider him quite cute himself in various ways and play it in contrast to Alvin's outright Chick Magnet.
  • Intelligence Equals Isolation: Simon's a genius, but he's also nervous, introverted, and veers into this at times, to the point where he claims a disappointing kid in the 2015 series is "the best friend I've ever had". On the other hand, Alvin's constant begging for help, attention, and monitoring subverts this, which is probably why Simon keeps letting him.
  • Insufferable Genius: When he gets too preachy or smug.
  • The Lancer: To Alvin and it's the position he bears when all six chipmunks are together.
  • Lovable Nerd: His defining trait.
  • Mad Scientist: Sometimes in play roles. He often is working on a science experiment.
  • Morality Pet: He frequently corrects Alvin (and sometimes also other characters like his brother Theodore and The Chipettes) if he believes his actions wrong (and is often correct).
  • Nerd Glasses: A Western Megane, these have always defined him. Exaggerated when he gets a truly atrocious pair temporarily (stated as his "old glasses") in the CGI series. He's then picked on for them.
  • Not So Above It All: Especially in the 80's show, "more mature than Alvin" doesn't necessarily mean "always mature and responsible." He can be quite childish, especially when prodded.
  • Not So Different: Him and Alvin, in Chipwrecked.
  • Pair the Smart Ones: With Jeanette who is smart (and clumsy) just like him.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Alvin's red. Are you surprised?
  • Retcon: He becomes the oldest Chipmunk by eight seconds in the 2015 cartoon.
  • Sexier Alter Ego: His ‘Simone’ persona in Chipwrecked, and 'Mr. Heartthrob' from the episode "Dr. Simon & Mr. Heartthrob".
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Alvin.
  • The Smart Guy: The brain of the group.
  • Snark-to-Snark Combat: With Alvin.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Inverted and played straight. Simon was overshadowed in The Alvin Show and a number of early episodes of the '80s cartoon; Janice Karman later attempted to make up for this by focusing quite a bit on Simon and gave him a popularity boost he enjoys to this day.
  • Twice Shy: To Jeanette in Chipwrecked. They are shy about their relationship, however it is obvious that he cares for her.
  • Verbal Tic: (When voiced by Ross Bagdasarian Jr.) Simon takes a lot of slight pauses when speaking and draws out his words, giving him a noticeably distinct manner of speaking.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: They're brothers, but his and Alvin's dynamic consist of this.
  • Wise Beyond His Years: Played with. Simon's incredibly intelligent and deeply thoughtful, but only sometimes profound. A lot of the time he's not especially more mature than his brothers.

Not only is he the child of innocence as well as the youngest, but Theodore is shy, loving, sensitive, chubby, gullible, trusting and naïve. In short, he is an easy target for Alvin's manipulations, often holding the swing vote between his two brothers' choices of action. Simon appeals to Theodore's better nature while Alvin goes straight to bribery.
  • Adorkable: Shy, naïve, and gullible, but sweet.
  • Anti-Hero: When a werewolf in Meet the Wolfman, he plays a Nominal Hero Type .
  • All-Loving Hero: Ever since the days of The Alvin Show Theodore's been this, bordering on Friend to All Living Things, and sometimes taking on Extreme Doormat tendencies. Says quite a lot about him that when a bully is stealing his food, he makes sure to cater his lunch for the bully's tastes.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: The nicest of the brothers, but do not piss him off.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • In Meet Frankenstein, he arrives little late along with Frankie and Simon to save Alvin from the potion forcibly given to him by Doktor Frankenstein that’ll make him into a zany cartoonish monster, he but does save his big brother before the process could be completed. Then later, when the potion Alvin underwent takes effect during the premiere, he helps Simon make an antidote to cure Alvin when he does turn into a monster.
    • In Meet the Wolfman, despite being a werewolf, he manages to retain enough of his senses to fight off Talbot!Wolfman in order to protect Eleanor from the older Wolfman.
  • Big Eater: Boy, does he love to eat.
  • Big Fun: He's the chubbiest out of his brothers and has a fun-loving, excitable personality.
  • Big Guy: Out of his three brothers.
  • Book Dumb: Has been shown to struggle at school more than the others.
  • Character Tic: His “Heheheheh” laugh at everything in the original cartoon.
  • Cross Dressing Voice: When Jan voices him.
  • The Cutie: He's the youngest, and his kindness and innocence make him also the most lovable.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The Alvin Show’s episode “Theodore’s Dog.” He also got to be the star of a few song segments.
  • The Ditz: He has traits of this, with his mind working in strange ways at times... but he's not actually stupid, just childish and naïve.
  • Dumb Blond: He's settled into this by the CGI series.
  • The Everyman: Sometimes fell into this role in The Alvin Show, though he got a clearer personality and more screen time than Simon did.
  • Extreme Doormat: And it makes it easier for bullies to target him.
  • Fat Comic Relief: Theodore is a bit heavyset and acts silly.
  • Fat Idiot: He's the fattest Chipmunk and can be pretty dim.
  • Food as Bribe: This is usually how Alvin ropes him into his schemes.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: The Apathetic.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Sanguine.
  • Funny Background Event: The main thing that kept him from becoming a completely Generic Guy on The Alvin Show was that he was a frequent provider of these, especially during song segments.
  • The Generic Guy: Again, in The Alvin Show he sometimes came across as this, though not as much as Simon.
  • God Guise: By a tribe of natives in The Chipmunks Adventure.
  • The Ingenue: A male example. He is the nicest and sweetest member of the Chipmunks. But he is also very naive and trusting, and easily duped, with Alvin taking advantage of this in his schemes.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: In the animated movie Meet the Wolfman when he’s bitten by a werewolf.
  • Keet: He has some shades of this.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: He is considered innocent and gullible and is portrayed to be the youngest.
  • Lovable Coward: Theodore is by far the most timid and easily-scared of the brothers.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Feminine Boy to Eleanor's Masculine Girl.
  • Morality Pet: For Alvin in the 2009 live-action movie.
  • Nice Guy: He is best described as loving, sensitive, and innocent.
  • The Pollyanna: Sometimes. As Simon puts it in "Meets Frankenstein."
    "That little glass of yours is always half full, isn't it?"
  • Sarcasm-Blind: He often has problems understanding it when Alvin or Simon are being sarcastic.
  • Shrinking Violet: He has trouble standing up for himself. The episode Dave's Wonderful Life shows that he used to be shy and would have become a hermit without Dave's influence.
  • Signature Laugh: Had a very distinct giggle on The Alvin Show.
  • Straw Vegetarian: Averted in the direct-to-VHS movies at least. He's feminine and naive but lacks most of the other factors. It seems that even though they're chipmunks the others don't seem to show the same vegetarianism as Theodore. Although Theodore has order hamburgers before, as well as has been seeing eating lunch meat.
  • Supreme Chef: Theodore's love for cooking is often seen in episodes such as "Father's Day Muffins" and "Every Chipmunk Tells A Story".
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Theodore really wants to believe the best of everyone in the world, which sometimes leaves him wide open for being manipulated by more cynical people, such as Alvin.
  • Wolf Man (Well, Munk): He gets better at the end of Meet the Wolfman.
  • Yes-Man: In The Alvin Show he's pretty much the tagalong character, happy to follow Alvin's or Simon's lead.

The lead singer and the oldest, Brittany has a pleasing facial and physical appearance, though at times can be vain and self-serving with the extreme desire to have whatever she wants, but is still very caring.

  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the first two live-action films her personality is toned down. She is a lot friendlier and polite, making it easier for others to approach her. She is nicer and has better control over her temper than Alvin does, though it is still a bit shorter than most.
  • Attention Whore: And gets annoyed if she's not in the spotlight.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Alvin and Brittany have always shared an on / off relationship, often appearing to hate each other. However, they are known to express romantic feelings towards each other.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Don't mess with Jeanette or Eleanor, otherwise, Brittany will put the hurt on you!
  • Character Development: Brittany remained as egotistical as Alvin, though she (being a girl) was much more of a diva, wanting to have everything her own way from whatever Zany Scheme she and her sisters got into to whatever ensemble she would be wearing.
  • Cool Big Sis: Except when she's not...
  • Deadpan Snarker: During the series Brittany is depicted as domineering and as somewhat sarcastic and untrustworthy.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: In Mini-Munks.
  • Fanservice Pack: In some parody episodes (80s cartoon) where the main characters have alternate identities. When Brittany play the role of the Femme Fatale or The Vamp, her body is more mature and curvy than normal.
  • The Fashionista: She loves fashion and shows several outfits around the series.
  • Fiery Redhead: It's not sure if she's redhead, but DAMN, she's fiery.
  • Go-Getter Girl: In the 2015 series. She exhibits a greater sense of responsibility by serving duty as The Principal's assistant, a position that she takes very seriously.
  • The Heroine: Of the Chipettes.
  • It's All About Me: Like Alvin, she has her moments.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Brittany is shown to be kind and compassionate, such as when, in The Chipmunk Adventure movie, she at first refuses to help Eleanor take home a kidnapped baby penguin but later submits after seeing its deep sadness and longing.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Although she's self-centered (just like Alvin) and sometimes puts her image before her sisters' (especially Jeanette) feelings (again, just like Alvin), she really does care about them (just as Alvin cares about his brothers) and usually does the right thing in the end except when she doesn't, just like Alvin.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Tends to have a bit more morals about it than Alvin does sometimes, but is no less above it.
  • Never My Fault: Due to her ego, Brittany has been shown to be unable to admit her mistakes.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Her signature color. She is commonly seen wearing a pink skirt with a pink top.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Jeanette's blue.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In the second live action film, she calls out Alvin for not caring about anyone but himself, and she's no saint either.
  • Skirt over Slacks: She wears these in the 2015 cartoon.
  • Social Climber: Has tried to fit in with some girl posses, to the point that she writes off Jeanette.
  • Sweet Tooth: In the 2015 series. In "Suck Toad", when the eponymous animal is stuck to her face, she's under strict instructions to avoid sweets and finds it really difficult.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Subverted. Her regular hairstyle is a ponytail but she's the girliest of the Chipettes.
  • Tsundere: Towards Alvin (and vice versa). They are constantly at odds with one another and fight, but they do show that deep down they love each other.
  • You Got Spunk: Why the Egyptian Prince wanted to marry her in Chipmunk Adventure.

Like Simon, Jeanette is the middle sister despite being the tallest and smartest of the Chipettes.
  • Absent-Minded Professor: Gifted with extraordinary intelligence, she often is so caught up in contemplating the universe that she forgets the simple matters of life, such as not tripping over her own feet.
  • Adorkable: Her clumsiness makes her come off as this.
  • Advertised Extra: Despite being a major character, she gets severely shafted in The Squeakqueal, having around ten lines in the entire film minus the singing.
  • All-Loving Hero: She feels sorry for bullies, thinking they must have horrible home lives.
  • Beautiful All Along: When She Cleans Up Nicely, even Brittany is jealous.
  • Big Little Sister: The middle sister of the three despite being the tallest.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Jeanette has very poor vision, and is virtually helpless without her glasses.
  • Butt-Monkey: Very, very clumsy.
  • Brainy Brunette: Has brown hair and is The Smart Girl of the group.
  • Character Development: Jeanette became considerably more shy and withdrawn compared to Simon, while she expressed an interest more towards literature than science.
  • Character Tic: In the 80s/90s show as well as in Chipmunk Adventure, she winked a lot, usually at Simon.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Gets some shades of this in ALVINNN!!! and the Chipmunks, perhaps to make her more distinct from Simon personality-wise. Her mind goes to some very weird places sometimes, and she has odd talents like talking to cats. Not to mention the spree she goes on the 6minute she gets a hint of something magical.
  • Cute Bookworm: Likes reading, and is adorable.
  • The Cutie: Shares this with Theodore.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She is very clumsy and tends to knock into things often. But, as pointed by Eleanor, she is a "lovable" clumsy.
  • Damsel in Distress: Becomes this in the third half of Chipwrecked.
  • Ditzy Genius: She's very well-read and book-smart, but otherwise lacks common sense and general intelligence, such as putting her shoes on the wrong feet, holding signs upside-down, walking into doors or walls, tripping over untied shoelaces, falling down the stairs, etc.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Ate lipstick in Mini-Munks.
  • The Glasses Gotta Go: This is one of the few episodes where Jeanette is seen without her glasses.
  • Green Eyes: Has these in the 80s series.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears a long purple ribbon in her hair.
  • Meganekko: A Funny Animal example.
  • Morality Pet: In the 80s series, CGI series, and just generally really, seems to imply Alvin harbors a soft spot for her because she's such a Nice Girl. She's the only character thus far he avoids being a deliberate Jerk Ass to and tends to speak/act more gentle around her. While rather hypocritical coming from him, he angrily calls out Brittany for her treatment of Jeanette in the episode "Sisters".
  • Nice Girl: Not only is she never once seen to get angry about anything and is the calmest of the girls, but in the episode when the six kids had to work out which of them was at fault for a broken statue in their school, she wasn't even a suspect.
  • Pair the Smart Ones: With Simon. During the series it is a relationship that can be described as best friends who have secret crushes on one another.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: Her usual hairstyle.
  • Purple Eyes: In the films and 2015 series.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Purple being a lighter color to Simon’s blue.
  • The Quiet One: In Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Brittany's red.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: An example is in "My Fair Chipette" where Alvin transforms her into beauty pageant material.
  • Shrinking Violet: She is actually more like Theodore than Simon in a sense, as they are both sweet, timid, and shy.
  • The Smart Girl: The brains of the Chipettes.
  • Twice Shy: To Simon in Chipwrecked.

The youngest of her sisters, Eleanor has a lot in common with Theodore in terms of body shape, interests and color of attire, but she is braver and more athletic.
  • The Lancer: To Brittany.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Masculine Girl to Theodore's Feminine Boy.
  • Morality Pet: Eleanor is quite strong-willed and is far more likely than the timid Jeanette to stand up to her sister Brittany when she feels that she is wrong.
  • The One Who Wears Shoes: Her CGI self in The Squeakqueal is insisted by Ian she has to be taller when onstage, though once the Chipettes realize Ian was Evil All Along, Eleanor takes off the shoes and throws them at his face.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: In the animated series, she's really good at soccer. The episode Soccer to Me has her prove to Alvin she can make the team even if she's a girl.
  • Spanner in the Works: In The Chipmunk Adventure, if she hadn't made the decision to convince her sisters to take the baby penguin back to his family in Antarctica, they wouldn't have run off course and attracted the attention of the villains, and in turn might never have found out about the diamonds and the true motive behind the race.
  • Stout Strength: A slight variation on this trope as well as one of the few female examples. Despite her physique, she's revealed to be very athletic and was able to beat Alvin in a one-on-one soccer match.
  • Supreme Chef: Like Theodore, she loves food and is interested in cooking.
  • Team Mom: Somewhat, as she's the one who tries to keep the brash Brittany in line, and was the one who looked after the baby penguin in The Chipmunk Adventure the most. She is extremely maternal.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: The most athletic of the girls, but she also likes singing, dancing, and cooking.
