[[folder: Main characters]]
!!Barney The Dinosaur

--> Performed by David Voss (1988-1990), David Joyner (1991-2001), Josh Martin (1997) and Carey Stinson (2001-2010)

A purple Tyrannosaurus rex who comes to life through the imaginations of young children. Starting out as a plush toy, when the kids imagine, Barney arrives and helps the children learn various lessons on life.
* {{Adorkable}}: Barney's humor helps make him this.
** From "Imagination Island:"
-->BJ: "Hey, this tree makes a great drum!"
-->Barney: "And a good drum is hard to beat! .....Or is it a good drum is easy to beat? I always get that mixed up."
* AllLovingHero: He sees the good in everyone.
* CarnivoreConfusion: Although he's a T. rex, Barney is mostly vegetarian.
-->'''Barney:''' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udsvbtkiB60&t=29m41s ...But I don't eat people. Just veggies!]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: ''Super Dee Duper''
** ''Stu-u-u-pendous!''
** ''Tee-rific!''
* CharacterSignatureSong: "I Love You"
* CuddleBug: He loves hugs, making him fit this trope to a tee.

* FriendToAllChildren: All kids adore him, and for a good reason.
* GentleGiant: A big dinosaur whose heart is bigger than his size.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Barney's closet

* NiceGuy: What else can you say about a dinosaur who's nice to everyone, never gets angry, loves everybody, and loves helping people with nothing in return?
* OlderThanTheyLook: He sure looks good for somebody who's more than two hundred million years old.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Barney is over two hundred million years old.
* SayMyName and TheGlomp: He gets this [[OnceAnEpisode almost every day]].
* SeriesMascot: As the main character of the series, Barney tends to be featured most on merchandise compared to the little dinos (i.e. Baby Bop). This is also why most anti-Barney parodies focus on Barney himself and ignore the other dinosaurs.
* SleepModeSize: Barney has this in the form of a plush toy.
* SpeciesSurname: Barney T. Dinosaur
* SupernaturalIsPurple: Barney is a purple dinosaur and has magical/imaginary powers to boot.
* ToothStrip: Barney's teeth are fashioned in this manner to make him non-threatening to the show's audience. [[note]]The trope was once even named "Barney Teeth"[[/note]]

** In Season 11, Barney acquired a taste for pistachios. The first episode of said season involves him overcoming an addiction to them, with help from the other dinos.

* WinkDing: One can be heard, as toy Barney winks to the audience, complete with a twinkle in his eye.

* {{Mondegreen}}: A common gag involves Baby Bop mispronouncing a name or song lyrics.
-->'''Baby Bop:''' [singing Home on the Range] Where the deer and the cantaloupe play...
* PaletteSwap: Of Barney himself.
** {{Foil}}: Sheryl Leach intended Baby Bop to be a foil to Barney.
* SayMyName: At first, her presence was not guaranteed, so she would get this when she did show up.
* StartMyOwn: How she responded to learning that she was too young for the elementary school.
* ThirdPersonPerson: In the last two Backyard Gang videos and the first season of Barney & Friends. Mostly averted afterwards.
* TrashTheSet: She unintentionally wrecks the classroom in Season 3's "Classical Cleanup," setting the plot in motion. At the end, when Baby Bop mentions she's going to dance again, the rest of the cast worries that she'll mess it up once more.

BJ is a seven year old yellow protoceratops who is Baby Bop's older brother.

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Inverted, he's the Annoying Older Sibling to Baby Bop, since he sometimes teases her.
* BigEater: Downplayed, as he eats a great deal, but unlike most {{BigEater}}s he is not immune to eating large amounts of food he's had more than one stomach ache due to eating too much. At the sight of the table spread in ''Sing and Dance with Barney'', he nearly loses control.

* CharacterSignatureSong: "BJ's Song" and "Captain Pickles," the latter for his superhero persona.

* StageMagician: "BJ the Great"
* ToothStrip: Like the other dinosaurs (save for Baby Bop).
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pickles
* {{Tuckerization}}: BJ was named after Sheryl Leach's father, Billy J. "BJ" Stamps.

A six year old orange hadrosaur that is BJ and Baby Bop's cousin. He loves music and inventing new things.

* CharacterSignatureSong: "I Hear Music Everywhere"

[[folder: Recurring Characters/Guests]]
!!Professor Erasmus Q. Tinkerputt
-->Played by Barry Pearl

A zany toy inventor who befriends Barney and co. when they visit Imagination Island.

* CloudCuckooLander: Tinkerputt tends to be zanier than most characters in the franchise, creating rather bizarre yet enjoyable toys including a balloon maker that blows up balloons in various sizes, a bike driven music machine, and even life-size dancing robots.
* CoolOldGuy: An elderly man who makes toys.
* ItsAllAboutMe: In Imagination Island, he was not interested in sharing the toys he has invented, until [[spoiler: Barney and his friends show him the benefits of sharing]]. To be fair, this may have been more a matter of habit than selfishness - being the only resident on Imagination Island would not really engender an urge to share. Averted in Barney's Big Surprise.
* LargeHam: Very bombastic and zany.
* TheProfessor: A toy inventor.

!!Mr. Boyd
--> Played by Robert Sweatmon
* BaldOfAwesome: Bald and a hero.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Subverted. Mr. Boyd's first name is Grady, as revealed by his niece Colleen. This surprises the other kids, but while he is initially embarassed that the other kids know, he shrugs it off shortly afterward.

'''Rest of the kids:''' Grady!? \\
'''Mario:''' I thought your first name was "[[TheyCallMeMisterTibbs Mister]]." \\
'''Mr. Boyd:''' [somewhat embarassed] Grady Boyd is my name... \\
[back in character] And taking care of the park is my job... and I better get back to it.
* JackOfAllTrades: While Mr. Boyd's main professions were being a janitor and a park keeper, he has also been a beach store owner and a bee keeper, in addition to his side career as a musician.

[[folder:Generation One cast (Backyard Gang series and Seasons 1-3)]]
-->Brian Eppes
* {{Badbutt}} [[BadassArmfold Armfold]]: This is the pose that he strikes for "Everyone is Special". It works, because by the time the children were involved in the song, he was the eldest boy around. This ties into...

* AsianAndNerdy: Downplayed. He's a bookish kid with glasses, and eventually, braces.

* ThePianoPlayer: Fakes it with a player piano in "Rock with Barney".
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Adam missed out on "Barney's Campfire Sing-Along" because his actor was sick.

* InspirationallyDisadvantaged: Averted; Jason's hearing aid is never remarked upon.

* YourFavorite: This exchange, from "Sing and Dance with Barney:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: She's like a younger version of Tosha, and you can see it in ''Sing and Dance with Barney''.

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Averted, thanks in no small part to Chip's own refreshingly helpful attitude toward his sister.

* BigBrotherWorship: Linda looks up to Chip, and wants to share her accomplishments with him.

--> '''Linda''': Chip! Chip! Look what I made! \\

* HeldGaze: Linda [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4inKg_7wl2c has a gift]] for the platonic version of this.
* MeaningfulName: Linda means "cute" in Spanish. To say that the name is a perfect match would be an understatement.

--> '''Baby Bop''': I wonder what ''this'' story is! \\
'''Linda''': I don't know, but with a candy jar on the cover, it must be something sweet! \\

[[folder:Other Characters]]
!!Cody Newton
-->Trevor Morgan

The older brother of Abby and the antagonist-turned-protagonist of Barney's Great Adventure, Cody is a typical preteen boy who wants to be cool. Because of this, he tends to dismiss things like pretend play as "kid's stuff" and, as such, is in contrast to Barney's ideology.

* HeelFaceTurn: Towards the latter half of the movie, Cody goes through this and [[spoiler:comes up with the idea of using a log as an airplane to retrieve the egg]]
* RoadApples: During Old [=MacDonald=], Cody steps in a cowpie.
