Austin Danger Powers
- Played By: Mike Myers
- Above the Influence: In the first film, Austin, for all his womanizing, turns down a kiss from Vanessa because she's drunk.
- The Ace: He's a crack shot, a master martial artist, and saves the world for a day job.
- Badass: Austin really does prove that he's Britain's best when the chips are down.
- Berserk Button: Austin lost it when Dr. Evil killed Felicity. She got better, though.
- British Teeth: Has an unhygienic set of buck teeth. Vanessa tries to get him to use toothpaste.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Austin parodies James Bond by being very strange and silly. But at the end of the day, he is still a master spy and Action Hero.
- Butt Monkey: Austin is often on the receiving end of being embarrassed.
- Iron Butt Monkey: He takes quite a few severe beatings throughout the series but never suffers any major injury.
- Carpet of Virility: Austin's ridiculously hairy chest, which women improbably seem to love.
- Cartwright Curse: Vanessa is revealed to be a fembot to re-bachelor Austin at the beginning of the second movie with little recognition from the characters, and Felicity just disappears.
- The Casanova: No woman can resist his charms, not even robot women.
- Catch Phrase: "Groovy, baby," "Yeah, baby, yeah," "Very shagadelic," "What do you say, (woman's name)? Shall we shag now, or shag later?" and "Oh, behave."
- Chivalrous Pervert / Even Swingers Have Standards: While he is a sex maniac, he doesn't take advantage of drunk or married women. The latter of which is especially hard for him, since he was genuinely in love with Vanessa's mother.
- Comically Missing the Point: His knowledge of the 60s is rendered useless in the present day.
- Dude, Not Funny!: Said In-Universe by Austin in regards to his father writing off Austin's quite legitimate complaints about his parenting skills with a joke.
- Groin Attack: uses only one on Random Task with the Swedish penis pump. Austin is often prone to being on the end of these. In the end of the first film he front flips into his car but crotches himself on the gear shift. He groans and pulls it more into his crotch again by accident. In their first fight Mini Me kicks him while he is on his knees and bites him. In the third film during their fight again, Mini me kicks him again this time to escape from Austin's bashing his head in with a drawer.

- Goofy Print Underwear: His Union Jack underpants. Yeah.
- Human Popsicle: In the first film, to be un-thawed when Dr. Evil returns.
- Hurricane of Puns: Usually once per film, to the point of Overly Long Gag.
- Informed Attractiveness: Women fawn over him as the sexiest, most desirable man in the world. While Mike Meyers is not an ugly man, his costume and make-up as Austin make him quite repulsive.
- It's Personal: In the second film: "First he fought for the Crown, now he's fighting for the family jewels!" Dr. Evil takes his desire to get revenge against the International Man of Mystery one step too far and steals Austin's mojo, leaving Austin impotent. This blow below the belt (literally) motivates Austin throughout the film, furious that Dr. Evil would stoop that low and cause him to suffer erectile dysfunction.
- Kavorka Man: Whatever womanizing charms Austin is supposed to have in-universe aren't made very clear, since he is sub-par in looks and often obnoxious and annoying in personality.
- The Loins Sleep Tonight: In the second film, Austin suffers "performance issues." When Dr. Evil's spy, Fat Bastard, steals Austin's precious mojo (libido/sex drive) in 1969, Austin suddenly goes limp in the middle of sex with Ivana Humpalot and becomes impotent in 1999. He then travels back to 1969 to save himself from perpetual erectile dysfunction by retrieving his stolen mojo. His need to retrieve his mojo only intensifies when he falls in love with Felicity Shagwell, an American hippie/CIA agent, who idolizes the International Man of Mystery. Her interest in shagging Austin only increases his desire to regain his sexual performance.
- Loveable Sex Maniac: He's silly and zany and loves shagging.
- Mr. Fanservice: To all the women in the movies.
- Naked People Are Funny: Has no problems walking around nude in public. Usually with his naughty bits blocked from view by strategically placed objects.
- Not So Above It All: His suaveness and charm can go right out the window when he's really attracted to someone, causing him to lust after them as much as women usually lust after him.

- Sex God: No woman can resist him, and they fall in line for a chance to share a bed with him.
- Twin Threesome Fantasy: With the Japanese girls from the third film.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: His character arc in the third film. For all he's done in life, even being knighted by the queen, his father is neglectful and doesn't respect him.

- Heroic Seductress: She charms Fat Bastard into bed with her in order to plant a tracking device on him.
- Male Gaze: Her initial introduction in the second film.

- Punny Name: "Shagwell by name, shag very well by reputation."
- Put on a Bus: No mention of her is made in the third movie. However, at the end of the second film, there were two Austins. She probably went away with one of them.

- Girl of the Week: Austin's third. It's mentioned they met before and he broke her heart, but she still adores him.

- Ms. Fanservice
- Nice Hat
- Sassy Black Woman: By her own proclamation, "[she's] a whole lotta woman".
- Satellite Love Interest: Unlike Vanessa and Felicity, her role in Goldmember isn't as significant, due to the film being more about Austin and his father's relationship instead of Austin finding love.

- She's Got Legs
- Shout-Out: She's based on Pam Grier, even her catchphrase "You under arrest, sugar."

- The Casanova: Like Austin, he is a charming womanizer. Notable in that unlike Mike Meyers as Austin, Michael Caine's make-up does not hide his good looks and it's believable woman would desire him.
- Hypocrite: The two things he dislikes the most are people who are intolerant of other cultures, and the Dutch!
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He let Austin down twice at the Academy and the Knighting Ceremony.
Austin: (when he hears that Nigel was kidnapped) Oh! So, that's why my father wasn't at the Knighting Ceremony.Basil: Actually, he was kidnapped AFTER you were knighted.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: Reveals to Austin that Dr. Evil is his brother Doug.

- Captain Obvious: Which causes Austin to say "Whoop-de-do, Basil."
- Catch Phrase: When asked "What's happening, Basil?", he would reply "A lot has been happening."
- The Comically Serious: Typically serves as the comedic foil to Austin and other characters in most of his scenes.
- Meaningful Name: Basil Exposition provides exposition.
- Mr. Exposition: Literally.
- The original script (and some deleted scenes) for the first film really ran with this, having Basil describe every little detail whenever he appeared.
- Only Sane Man: He recognizes how strange and annoying Austin can be, and occasionally tells him so.
- Punny Name
- Played By: Mimi Rogers
- Action Girl: She kicks just as much butt as Austin.
- Spy Catsuit: Wears one early in the first movie.
Number Three / The Mole
- Played By: Fred Savage
- Adorkable: Comes off as this for trying ever so hard to pretend not to notice all the attention drawn to his mole. Especially when pointing out that he's aware of the irony of the guy with the mole being The Mole.
- Gross-Up Close-Up: His mole.
- The Mole: In multiple senses of the word.
- And he's aware of the irony.
Dr. Dougie Evil
- Played By: Mike Myers
- Abusive Parents: Dr. Evil's ridiculously traumatic upbringing. He likewise is one to Scott, though it seems to flip-flop regarding the situation. In the third movie, Mini-Me gets a taste of this.
- Affably Evil: He's very humorous, tries very hard to be a Doting Parent and very Adorkable; in spite of being a Card-Carrying Villain.
- Austin, I Am Your Father: Played for Laughs in the second film, Dr. Evil makes this claim, then says he can't back it up. Played straight in the third film, when he's revealed as Austin's long-lost brother.
- Bald of Evil: Seems to be a side-effect of being evil, since Scott starts going bald when he embraces evil like his father.
- Berserk Button: Don't insult Scott or Mini-Me. Or upset Mr. Bigglesworth.
- Big Bad: In all three films.
- Bond Villain Stupidity: One of his defining traits; repeatedly lampshaded throughout the series.
- Borrowed Catchphrase: At the end of Goldmember, Dr. Evil says "Yeah, baby!" Everyone stares blankly at him, and he adds: "No? Just trying it on."
- Card-Carrying Villain: He is a perfect homage to his trope. Just look at his name for starters.
- The Casanova: After drinking Austin's mojo, he absorbs his sexual prowess and seductive skills, and manages to seduce Frau.
- Character Tic: His distinctive "raise-pinkie-finger-to-mouth-level" gesture, as well as his generous use of Air Quotes when explaining his Evil Plans.
- Contractual Genre Blindness: Dr. Evil plays every villain trope he can just for the sake of doing it and is aware that it's expected of the villain, but is either unaware of or refuses to acknowledge that such acts are Bond Villain Stupidity. In the first film, he exercises No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Dine, and when Scott asks Why Don't Ya Just Shoot Him?, Dr. Evil mutters that Scott "just doesn't get it."
- The Ditz: His character generally exists to make fun of how stupid villains in spy movies are.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Ironically. He has no qualms with taking over the world or just outright destroying it (at least until the ending of Austin Powers in Goldmember), but when he meets Goldmember, the eponymous villain of the third movie, even he was disturbed by him and his actions ("How about 'no,' you crazy Dutch bastard!") He's also disturbed when Scott lets his Evil Laugh get away with him when he had Mr. Roboto eaten by laser sharks.
- Evil Eyebrows
- Evil Laugh: He loves giving these after dramatic moments and holding them out for long periods of time.
- Expy: He's a parody of classic Bond villain Ernst Stavros Blofeld, down to the scar, the suit and the cat.
- Freudian Excuse: Played for Laughs. He was raised by Belgians, who raised him to be evil.
- Heel–Face Turn: In the third film.
- Human Popsicle: Like Austin, in the first film. He apparently does this again at the end of the first film, but is already un-thawed when the second begins.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be evil, but he does care about his son, despite their complex relationship.
- Man Child
- Papa Wolf: He is very protective of both Scott and Mini-Me.
- Precision F-Strike: Dr. Evil's response to being caught in the first act, before even getting started on his Evil Plan, is simply "...shit."
- The Reveal: He's Nigel Powers' son and Austin's brother.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: When he was frozen.
- Unstoppable Rage: After a Klansman calls Scott Evil a "freak" on The Jerry Springer Show, he goes ballistic. He ends up fighting even when being restrained by Steve Wilkos and the other members of security, and after seemingly calming down, he then rushes to attack him again (something that never happens on Jerry Springer). And then instigates a full-out brawl on the set. Eventually, he seems calmed down...until Jerry Springer tells security to get Dr. Evil out of the premises ("get this jerk out of here"), upon which his rage is reawakened and he starts fighting with Springer, eventually managing to smash a globe in the ensuing stage riot.
- Where Did I Go Wrong?: He asks this about Scott.
- You Have Failed Me: He punishes his minions by dumping them through a trapdoor to be burned alive. When he tries it again in the '90s, the unfortunate Mook is left alive but "very badly burned," and is finally dispatched by another Mook with poor aim. His botched execution is Played for Laughs.
- Played By: Verne Troyer
- Badass: He kicks Austin's ass in the second film.
- Bald of Evil: Just like the original.
- Big Little Man: His initial introduction in the second film.
- Butt Monkey
- Cloning Blues: Defied; he never shows any problems being a clone of Dr. Evil and loves him like a father. That is, until he's replaced by Dr. Evil's son Scott.
- The Dragon: To Dr. Evil.
- Groin Attack: He is prone to do this on two occasions. In the second film, he kicks and bites Austin in his junk, and in the third film, he accidentally sends a model meteor right into Dr. Evil's testicles. Way to go, A-Hole!
- Heel–Face Turn: In the third film, in response to becoming The Unfavorite to Scott.
- Jerk Ass: He likes to flip people off and play cruel jokes on Scott.
- Mini-Me Can Breathe in Space: Mini-Me is ejected out into space unprotected in the second movie and survives completely unharmed.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: As shown in the second film when he gives Austin a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on the moon. He even lifts Austin over his head and tosses him across a hallway with little visible effort.
- Toilet Humor: What he does to avoid suspicion in the third movie.
- The Voiceless: He doesn't talk apart from saying "Eeee!" and in the "Just the Two Of Us" song in the second film, he lip-syncs "You and I" in a very deep voice.
- Played By: Seth Green
- Awesome McCool Name
- Bald of Evil: When he decides to become evil in the third film, his hair falls out.
- Butt Monkey: Often on the receiving end of Dr. Evil's verbal abuse.
- Catch Phrase: "I hate you". Most often directed at Dr. Evil.
- Deadpan Snarker: Very deadpan in response to his father.
- The Dragon: Finally usurps Mini-Me in this role in the third film.
- Dragon Ascendant: The ending implies that with Dr. Evil turning good, Scott has taken control of his evil empire to continue fighting Austin.
- Girly Run: In the third film he runs out of a scene flailing his arms and legs. Dr. Evil immediately lampshades this trope to the rest of the cast present.
- Jerkass: Somewhat depending on the situation.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: The second film reveals he's actually Dr. Evil's love child with Frau.
- Meta Guy: In that he points out why Dr. Evil's plans are stupid and asks why he's not going with something more pragmatic and likely to succeed.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: He is not the idiot his father is—he is aware that Austin will escape his death traps, that Dr. Evil should just cut to the chase and kill Austin when he has the chance, and that his plans will blow up in his face. In the first film, he States the Simple Solution when his father places Austin in a Death Trap, offering to get his own gun from his room and kill Austin himself, but is shut down.
- Only Sane Man: To an extent, him and Number Two. However, while Number Two is silently exasperated with Dr. Evil's idiocy, Scott is open in calling his father an inept moron with stupid plans.
- Stupid Evil: His savvy aspect decreases in the third film when he turns evil.
- The Unfavorite: After Mini-Me comes into the picture, he gets this from Dr. Evil.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Zigzagged. In the first film, he hates Dr. Evil, having been raised by Frau and never knowing his father, and rejects his father's attempts to bond. In the second film, he tries to bury the hatchet and make amends, but Dr. Evil has Mini-Me at that point, the son he always wanted. In the third film, his turn to evil finally gets him Dr. Evil's respect, but then Dr. Evil performs a Heel–Face Turn and Scott declares his hatred for him again.
- Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Tries to get his father to go along with this line of thinking, to no avail.
- Played By: Robert Wagner, Rob Lowe (young)
- Beleaguered Assistant: Oh so much.
- Broken Pedestal: 30 years without his boss seems to have taken away the friendship and hero worship he had for Dr. Evil.
- Deadpan Snarker: Pretty much the only way he copes with his boss.
- Cut Lex Luthor a Check: He cares more for the success of the company than the schemes of Dr. Evil. He tries to betray him in the first film when he realizes a Stupid Evil man like Dr. Evil cannot thrive in the business world, but Dr. Evil attempts to kill him instead. From the second film on he tries to convince Dr. Evil to give up the supervillain life, since his perfectly legal public companies make him a comfortable millionaire, if only he would just stop squandering the money on schemes to take over the world.
- The Dragon: To Dr. Evil. While Mini-Me becomes his right-hand in the third film, Number Two is still central to his plans.
- Evil Counterpart:
- To Vanessa in International Man of Mystery. Like her with Austin, his primary role is to acclimate Dr. Evil to life in the 90's and try to point out that his views on evil are a bit outdated. Dr. Evil only occasionally listens.
- Also one to Basil across the series. Like Basil, he's Dr. Evil's adviser who gives him information about his plans and realizes how ridiculous Austin and Dr. Evil are. However, Austin usually appreciates Basil's help while Dr. Evil ignores and insults Number Two.
- Eyepatch of Power: It hides an x-ray device in the first film.
- Heel–Face Turn: Along with Dr. Evil, he turns good at the end of the third film.
- Hyper-Competent Sidekick: To Dr. Evil.
- Pragmatic Villainy: The main reason why Number Two attempted to betray Dr. Evil was because he was nearly ruining his business after he returned.
- Professional Butt-Kisser: He's been like this to Dr. Evil since the Academy.
- Punny Name: He's a literal Number Two to the Number One, Dr. Evil.
Austin: (when he is about to kill Paddy O'Brien, shoving his head into a toilet and making him drown in the water)) Who does Number Two work for?
- Sarcastic Devotee: He tries to be loyal during the first movie, and his older self barely appears in the second. By Goldmember, he's basically given up on Dr. Evil.
- The Smart Guy: He single-handedly builds up the corporates that fund Dr. Evil's projects.
- The Starscream: Attempted it near the end of the first movie but forgot about the booby-trapped chairs.
- Screw Yourself: In the deleted scenes of the second film with his younger self. Complete with...
- Took a Level in Jerkass: Retroactively; his thirty years-younger self from The Spy Who Shagged Me is noticeably more loyal to Dr. Evil than his older self.
- Unexplained Recovery: He is apparently killed at the end of the original film when Dr. Evil drops him into a fire pit. However, he returns for the sequels with almost no injuries.
- Villainous Friendship: The third movie reveals that the two met in Spy School and have been allies since then, though granted "friendship" is probably stretching things a bit.
- Played By: Mindy Sterling
- The Ageless: From 1967 to 1997, Frau's appearance doesn't change while Mustafa gets a lot grayer. Lampshaded in The Spy Who Shagged Me. while Number Two looks much younger in 1969, Frau again looks the exact same.
Dr. Evil: Thank you, Number Two. You look so healthy and youthful. (snip) And Frau! You look so... (sees she hasn't aged down at all) riiiight.
- Almighty Janitor: Downplayed as she is a high-ranking member of Dr. Evil's organization, but still applies as despite her Undying Loyalty to him, she is probably the only one Dr. Evil is actually intimidated by and completely, unconditionally respects. Probably because they have feelings for each other.
- The Baroness: The Rosa Klebb type. She's a spoof of her, as a matter of fact.
- Evil Genius
- Gratuitous German
- Heel–Face Turn: Along with Dr. Evil, she turns good at the end of the third film.
- Mama Bear: Don't try to harm Scott in front of her. Both Mini-Me and Doctor Evil found that out the hard way. Later, it turns out she really is Scott's mom.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: She reveals to Scott in the second film he isn't a test tube baby, but her child with Dr. Evil.
- No Indoor Voice
- Suddenly Shouting: Her trademark. "Send in the Fem-BOTS!!"
- Villainous Friendship: One of the very few members of Dr Evil's organization he never once considers executing or turning on- a list that includes is right-hand man No. 2, his clone Mini-Me, and his own son Scott, whom she is fiercely protective of. In the second film they even become lovers, and it turns out she is protective of Scott because she is his mother.
- Played By: Mike Myers
- Big Eater: He has a buffet by his bedside while sleeping with Felicity.
- The Brute: Takes over Random Task's role in the second film.
- Catch Phrase: "I'm dead sexy."

- Establishing Character Moment: "First thing's first!"..."WHERE'S YOUR SHITTER?" "I've got a real turtlehead pokin' out!"
- Fat Bastard: The Trope Namer.
- Fan Disservice:
- In the second movie, where he sleeps with Felicity. Send the Brain Bleach!
- In the third, when he becomes a Sumo wrestler.
- Freudian Excuse: He alludes to being bullied and mocked for his weight as a child, and in his depression and loneliness turned to eating, creating a vicious cycle. Subverted when his acknowledgement of this problem becomes an Ignored Epiphany, and he remains a Jerkass in the third film. He repeats the sob story there, implying he uses this trope to justify his behavior.
- Gass Hole: Is a fountain of Toilet Humor and a massive jerk.
- Heel–Face Turn: He stops being evil at the end of the third film and loses all his weight thanks to his Subway diet.
- I'm a Humanitarian: See Eats Babies.
- Psycho for Hire
- Wire Fu: He tries using this attack in the third film, to the point of being visibly held up by wires and calling attention to the people in the background holding him up. Unfortunately, one of the wires breaks halfway through and he's just left dangling in the air.
- Played By: Mike Myers
- Ambiguously Gay
- Autocannibalism: When he isn't collecting it in a box, Goldmember enjoys eating pieces of his own skin.
- Big Bad: Of the third film. He initially acts as a Big Bad Ensemble with Dr. Evil, then becomes the sole villain in the climax.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Even between the likes of Dr. Evil and Austin, Goldmember is weird. He peals flakes of skin off and eats them, is prone to randomly quoting songs and movies and then muttering the creator as an aside, and loves disco dancing at random.
- Dirty Old Man
- Disability Superpower: His smelting accident, and likely the loss of feeling in his groin, apparently lets him lift his legs absurdly high. His trademark attack is lifting them high enough to kick over his shoulder, which makes it hard to take the guy hostage from behind.
- Funny Foreigner: "I'm from Holland! Isn't that vierd?"
- Gag Penis: His penis is implied to be covered in solid gold. In the climax, it turns out he can unscrew it and use it as a spare key to his tractor beam.

- Rasputinian Death: In the first film, he gets thrown down a trapdoor and burned alive, and then shot in the arm, and then killed with another shot.
- In the second film, he's shot with a poison dart, then falls down a cliff, breaks both legs, and hurts them even more trying to stand up. His pain still continues in The Stinger.
- Weaksauce Weakness: If asked the same question three times in a row, he will be compelled to answer, since it "irritates" him.
