!!The Rescue Rangers

[[folder:Chip]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/TressMacNeille
[[quoteright:277:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cni220.jpg]]

The leader of the Rescue Rangers.
----
* AllWorkVsAllPlay: All Work to Dale's All Play.
* AmateurSleuth: A big fan of the 'Sheerluck Jones' method, and usually the one to notice and interpret clues.
* BadassAdorable: Chip does some pretty fearless things.
* CartoonyTail: He has short tails that end in a point, sort of like deer tails.
* ControlFreak: He's not really comfortable unless they have a plan, and he's not ''totally'' comfortable until he's the one giving directions.
* DeadpanSnarker: He's usually the one to comment when something particularly ludicrous happens.
* DetectiveAnimal: A crime-solving chipmunk.
* FedoraOfAsskicking: In as much asskicking as a series like this would allow.
* GreatDetective: Played with: it's his aspiration to be one.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Dale.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's usually the one with the bad attitude (in his cute little way). Sometimes he learns better, and sometimes he is the only sane chipmunk.
* TheLeader: Fairly subtly, since he passes the job to other characters whenever they'd do it better.
* NiceHat: He wears a Fedora hat.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Has his moments.
* OnlySaneMan: With the possible exception of Zipper, he's the only team member who can stay focused.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Dale's red.
* TheStraightMan: As the responsible and reliable one, he tends to end up on the receiving end of jokes and wackiness.
* ThroughAFaceFullOfFur: Gadget and Tammy have both made Chip blush on occasion.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Crosses this line in a few episodes, perhaps most notably in "Adventures in Squirrel-sitting" and "Pie in the Sky".
* VitriolicBestBuds: Constantly fights with Dale. But at the end of the day, they're always still HeterosexualLifePartners.

[[folder:Dale]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/CoreyBurton
[[quoteright:281:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dale_91.jpg]]

Co-founder of the Rescue Rangers.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: A goofy, well-meaning slacker.
%%* AirGuitar
* AllWorkVsAllPlay: All Play to Chip's All Work.
* BadassAdorable: He has his moments.
* BigEater: Of acorns as usual.
* BumblingSidekick: Dale is the comedy relief in the series.
* BalloonBelly: In "Out To Launch".
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He may be clumsy and eccentric, but he is really good in things he is good at, like crossdressing.
* CartoonyTail: He has short tails that end in a point, sort of like deer tails.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: The most extreme case on the team. He doesn't have much of an attention span.
* {{Crossdresser}}: Not ordinarily. On the other hand, when a plan calls for disguises, somehow he's the one thinking 'dresses'.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: See LetsGetDangerous.
* FunPersonified: His only ''consistent'' interest is in having a good time.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Chip.
* KidAppealCharacter: Dale's the one who enjoys comic books, watches scary movies in secret, doesn't see the point in cleaning his room, etc. etc.
* TheLancer: To Chip.
* LetsGetDangerous: On a couple of occasions, Dale has been the team's only hope. He'll save the day readily, but then return to his habitual lazy joking attitude.
%%* {{Malaproper}}
* MoreDakka: [=RamDale=] and his Decaffeinator.
%%* PluckyComicRelief
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Chip's blue.
* RubberMan: During his brief stint as 'Rubber-Bando'.
* TheSlacker: He's greedy, lazy and usually ignorant (which does make him handy when exposition is required).
* SmugSuper: He got pretty overconfident during his time as 'Rubber-Bando'.
* StockScream: He always had the same scream, and it oddly never sounded like his normal voice.
* StockSuperpowers: As Rubber Bando.
* SweetTooth: His love of candy comes up in a number of episodes.
* TookALevelInDumbass: A couple of times.
* VitriolicBestBuds: See Chip's entry above.

[[folder:Monterey Jack]]
-> Voiced by: Peter Cullen (first season), Creator/JimCummings (the remainder of the series)
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2013-09-13_at_4_29_57_pm-w350-h350-w300-h300_8148.png]]

An adventure-loving, red-haired and luxuriantly moustachioed Australian mouse who spent years traveling the world before a chance meeting with Chip and Dale during their first case.
----
* {{Acrofatic}}: He doesn't look like much of an acrobat, but he's just as skilled as the others at getting around.
* AndThisIsFor: In "Three Men and a Booby" Monty yells "This is for the Parmesan we left behind!" before launching a plunger at a cage with the mother booby.
* UsefulNotes/AustralianAccent: He's from Australia. Therefore, the accent.
* UsefulNotes/AustralianSlang: His speech is peppered with it.
* AwesomeAussie: Virtually fearless, extremely strong (by mouse standards) and always ready for more adventure.
%%* {{Badbutt}}
* BadassFamily: Cheddarhead Charlie and Camembert Kate (both of whom appear in the series).
* BadassMustache: The very large variety usually associated with British officers.
* BerserkButton: On "A Creep From the Deep," there was a RunningGag where Monty's tail has been "slammed, singed, kinked, and crushed." When an octopus yanks on it, he goes ballistic.
* BigEater: Especially when it comes to cheese.
* BigFun: Next to Dale, he's the most cheerful and fun-loving member of the team.
* TheBigGuy: Fairly standard use of the trope.
* BoisterousBruiser: Relentlessly cheerful and the only member of the team to seriously consider hand-to-hand combat against some of the (much bigger) villains.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Whenever he smells cheese, he goes into a trance and (sometimes) causes a path of destruction in his wake. The local police precinct recognize him from the many times he's stolen cheese slices off their sandwiches and burgers, cheese hunks from the mouse traps, and even a bag of cheese-flavored popcorn.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as often as Chip, but he likes to make side comments to Zipper when somebody's being foolish.
* DinnerDeformation: An episode has Monterey Jack unwittingly eating a piece of dehydrated cheese. When it rehydrates in his stomach, he's comically stretched out into a large brick shape. .
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Monty's appetite for cheese has been subtly compared to a drug addiction in "Mind Your Cheese and Q's."
* EmbarrassingNickname: His mom ''still'' calls him "Cheezer".
* FunetikAksent: The Disney comic series used this method as a reminder of his accent.
%%* GreenEyes
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Huge Guy to Gadget's Tiny Girl.
* LandDownUnder: Monty's homeland.
* LeeroyJenkins: Varies a bit by episode: when 'look before you leap' is supposed to be the lesson of the show, Monty's the bad example.
* TheNavigator: Unsurprising, considering the number of times he's been around the world, and is shown to be skilled at navigating by the stars.
* NoodleIncident: Monty only half-remembers the adventures he's been on, and there was an incident involving cheesebread and Gadget's father, Geegaw, that led to a friendship dissolution. Then there's the matter of Monty's cheese attacks -- how exactly did Monty come to have them if it's not genetic (both his mom and dad have been shown in the series and there were no signs of either Cheddarhead Charlie and Camembert Kate having them).
* PapaWolf: He is implied to be much older than the other Rescue Rangers and is very protective of them.
* PunnyName: Monterey Jack (a real type of cheese)
* RunawayGroom: He missed out on his own wedding to Desiree D'Allure because he had a cheese attack and chased after a cheese truck that was parked across the street.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: El Monty Grande in "When Mice Were Men."
* TheStoryteller: Almost everything he encounters reminds him of a previous exploit. Although his memory isn't the best.
* StoutStrength: Overweight: Check. Gadget even tries to get him to lose some weight. Strength: Check. He's easily the strongest Ranger.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He does look a lot like his father Cheddarhead Charlie (who coincidentally was voiced by Creator/JimCummings. "Parental Discretion Retired," the episode that introduced Cheddarhead Charlie, was one of the episodes that had Creator/PeterCullen as Monterey Jack).
* SuperStrength: Courtesy of cartoon physics, he's definitely got more lifting power and leverage than his size suggests.
%%* SupremeChef
* TeamChef: He's usually the cook. The others have gotten accustomed to a certain... cheese element... in their usual menu.
* TeamDad: Has an avuncular fondness for the whole crew, although he's pretty irresponsible for this trope.
* ThemeNaming: Monty's name, as well as his parents', are taken from cheese. "Cheezer" sort of fits in here, too.
* TopHeavyGuy: And heavy he is, for a mouse at least.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Cheeeeezzzze!!!
* WeaksauceWeakness: See TrademarkFavoriteFood above and WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes below
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Or in this case, cats (though kittens and Fat Cat's goons don't bother him).

[[folder:Gadget Hackwrench]]
-> Voiced by: Tress [=MacNeille=]
[[quoteright:245:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2013-09-13_at_4_29_12_pm-w350-h350-w300-h300-w274-h271_3687.png]]

A young female mouse and the team's pilot, mechanic and inventor.
----
* TenMinuteRetirement: In "The Case of the Cola Cult".
* EightiesHair: Her big hair is certainly a sign of the times in which the cartoon was made.
* AbsentMindedProfessor: Mechanical engineering, computer science and vector analysis are easy. Remembering that you're in danger is hard.
* ActionGirl: With Monty and Chip on the team she doesn't have to display it often, but there are episodes in which she takes a direct hand. In "The Case of the Cola Cult", she becomes a one-woman (well, mouse) army, driving a mouse-sized war machine and armed with a suction-cup crossbow and a magnet she can use to reflect metal projectiles back at their throwers. She single-handedly takes down nearly a dozen attackers and the BigBad while simultaneously rescuing the other Rangers.
* {{Adorkable}}: A sweet-natured, cross-eyed WrenchWench.
* BadassAdorable: She's hilarious when she gets angry, but she also tends to ''win'' when that happens.
* BadassBookworm: Although Gadget is the brains of the group, she gets along well when it comes to intervening physically, demonstrating a good physical shape.
* BalloonBelly: In "Out To Launch", the Rangers eat so much aboard the spacecraft that they all show much rounder shapes while relaxing and digesting. This does not exclude Gadget, she looks like she's pregnant.
* BareYourMidriff: She does wear a couple outfits like that...
--> '''Gadget:''' Well, not what I'm wearing right now, ''obviously.'' Other things I wear. Well, not all of them. Some of them. Beach things and things.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: In contrast with her teammates, who are {{Half Dressed Cartoon Animal}}s.
* BerserkButton: Never deceive her.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: You do ''not'' want to get on her bad side. Just see "The Case of the Cola Cult", which features her going into full ActionGirl mode to rescue her friends.
* BuffySpeak: Once in a while she loses the thread of what she was saying.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Golly!"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: At times. As Monty put it, "Gadget's elevator doesn't go all the way to the top floor."
* CrazyPrepared: Not typically - it's more common for her to pick up whatever's lying around and turn it ''into'' the device she needs. But there have been occasions.
* DerailedForDetails: Her famous rants are also known as Gadgetisms.
* DitzyGenius: She can make almost everything from almost anything, including rebuilding a plane out of garbage, but she simply does not register that in certain circumstances, certain behaviors are socially necessary or unusual.
* DudeMagnet: Both Chip and Dale fell in love with her. She's also caught the eye of villain Rat Capone, who keeps urging her to sign up with him.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: In "Double O'Chipmunk" she dressed as a spy with a red dress, heels and a blonde wig. She looks very sexy to Dale (and later [[DistractedByTheSexy to minions of that episode's Big Bad]]).
* {{Expy}}: [[WordOfGod Tad Stones]] says her personality was based on that of Jordan Cochran, the GenkiGirl HollywoodNerd of the 1985 film ''Film/RealGenius''.
* FurIsSkin: Does she even have fur, besides her FurryFemaleMane?
* FurryFemaleMane: A rather extreme version which provides the current image for that page.
* GadgeteerGenius: Her main niche on the team. She's the one who provides all the ''Rats of NIMH''-style improvised technology - radios, submarines, dirigibles...
* GenkiGirl: She's very cheerful and energetic.
* GogglesDoNothing: She [[GogglesDoSomething does wear them]] over her eyes occasionally when flying the Ranger Wing, but that's no excuse to be wearing them on her head ''all'' the time. However she is a DitzyGenius. She may leave them on her head so she doesn't forget them... and then forget that she left them on her head.
%%* GoshDangItToHeck
* HairColorDissonance: Gadget's hair color switching between almost anything from gold to orange is a particularly {{Egregious}} example of AnimationBump.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Gadget fits this stereotype; she's innocent, kind, young and attractive.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Most notably in the glass-cutter incident, but she also seems to have tools when she needs them.
* HeartwarmingOrphan: A little older than the standard example, but who doesn't feel bad for her when she looks at a picture of her DisappearedDad and tears up?
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Tiny Girl to Monty's Huge Guy.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: Usually bipedal, fully dressed ([[BarefootCartoonAnimal except for shoes]]), hair as well as fur, and so forth.
* InnocentBlueEyes: They represent her innocence and kindness.
* LethalChef: Referenced: Dale tells Foxglove that Gadget's cuisine always tastes like machine oil.
* MeaningfulName: In [=STEM=] circles, a "hack" is an inelegant or unconventional, but effective solution to a problem.
* ObliviousToLove: ''Very'' much so. "Double-O Chipmunk" made it obvious that Gadget ''knows'' she's attractive (and, at her team's request, uses it as a last resort) but she seems to avoid relationships - she may be shy of losing ''another'' loved one. She was pretty obviously attracted to Sparky (from "Does Pavlov Ring A Bell?")...'' but ''he'' was even ''more'' ObliviousToLove. Fanon has been all over the place with this.
* OneOfTheBoys: She is never shown to have any real female friends, doesn't wear any make up or jewelry (except for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7ov2mj-Rj4&t=5m59s that one time]]), and [[WrenchWench her]] [[GadgeteerGenius interests]] are anything but "girly". Even so, though, she isn't exactly what you would call a "tomboy."
* OnlyOneName: Yes, Gadget has a last name, but after the FiveEpisodePilot it's never used again, and even then it was only used when naming her father, Geegaw Hackwrench; meaning Gadget's last name being Hackwrench is really only a logical assumption.
* ParentalAbandonment: Gewgaw's disappearance is unexplained and her mother is simply never mentioned, but ''To The Rescue'' shows that Gadget was effectively orphaned and took it hard.
* ScienceHero: Hilariously true to the trope. If a solution doesn't exist, she ''makes'' one.
* SheCleansUpNicely: To carry the role of the classic FemmeFatale in "Double O Chipmunk", Gadget switches to a slinky red dress, a blond(er) wig, heels, makeup etc.
* TheSmartGirl: She is the brains of the group.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The main cast of five has only one female.
%%* TeamMom
* TechnoBabble: She'll start in on this at times.
* TomboyishName: Insofar as 'Gadget' implies a gender at all.
* TookALevelInBadass: When she changes into Orange Gadget in "The Case of the Cola Cult".
* WrenchWench: A do-it-yourself machinist/electrician usually clad in lavender coveralls.

A tiny bluish-green housefly and a long time friend and sidekick of Monterey Jack.
----
* BadassAdorable: Tiny even by the Rangers' standards, but pretty dauntless.
* BalloonBelly: In "Out To Launch" the Rangers eat so much aboard the spacecraft that they all show much rounder shapes while relaxing and digesting.
* FingerlessHands: Close to it: his hands are mitten-shaped.
* ForgotICouldFly: Has to be reminded he has this ability sometimes.
* FourLeggedInsect: He only has four legs, and barely resembles a real fly.
* SuperStrength: Well, call it "higher than realistic fly strength".
* TeamPet: Of the group.
* TimmyInAWell: His main job in the Rescue Rangers.
* TheUnintelligible: Zipper ''can'' speak, but his speech is incredibly fast and high-pitched. Monty can interpret, and the other Rangers seem to be able to get the gist.

A felonious, obese grey tabby cat and one of the Rescue Rangers' most frequent antagonists.
----
* BigBad: He drops in and out of focus, but he was set up as the primary villain during the pilot and appears more often than any villain except, possibly, Nimnul.
* CatsAreMean: In a show where the heroes consist of two chipmunks and two mice, it's natural that some villainous cats are going to show up.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mainly to his [[SurroundedByIdiots minions]].
* DragonAscendant: Following Chlordane's defeat in the pilot.
* EvilIsPetty: In "Flash the Wonder Dog," where he attempts to destroy the titular character's reputation simply because he wants a cat protagonist instead. When a bird is then given top billing, Fat Cat personally deals with the matter himself.
* FatBastard: He's a villain and obviously not underfed.
* FatCat: It is his name after all.
* LargeHam: From his evil lair to his maniacal laugh.
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: He has a whole VillainSong about it in the pilot.
* RightHandCat: Was one to Chlordane before going solo after Chlordane is arrested and incarcerated in the pilot.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Which he complains about loudly.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: He has an identical cousin in France, Maltese [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar de Sade]].
* VillainSong: Fat Cat gets two in the series. The first one is in the pilot, and the second one, called the "Fat Cat Stomp", is in "Adventures in Squirrelsitting", which was supposed to be played as a distraction to smuggle the titular squirrels out of the casino. It fails when Fat Cat sees through the ruse and busts the Rangers before they can leave.
* WickedCultured: After the pilot, he is '''never''' seen without his suit, plus he operates a casino with a rather luxurious office.

[[CaptainObvious Fat Cat's gang.]]
----
* TheBrute: Mole and Snout share this position.
* ButtMonkey: Mole.
* CatsAreMean: Averted with Mepps, who is notably more mellow than his boss.
* ADogNamedDog: A mole named Mole.
* TheDragon: Wart (who holds this position mainly by being the least stupid).
* GoldfishPoopGang: Their incompetence is extremely evident.
* YouDirtyRat: Snout, who is a (very large) rat.

[[folder:Professor Norton Nimnul]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nimnul-w350-h350_9973.jpg]]
-> Voiced by: Jim Cummings

The Rangers' other major enemy and a mad scientist who once worked for Aldrin Chlordane.
----
* AlliterativeName: Nimnul is brought to you by the letter 'N'.
* BadBoss: As seen in "Catteries Not Included" towards his robot dogs and "Fake Me to Your leader" towards his giant bugs.
* BaldOfEvil: ''Balding'' of Evil to be more accurate, as he still has some hair around his temple.
* BrokenPedestal: As far as his former lab rat Sparky is concerned. Sparky genuinely believed in Nimnul and respected him, only to discover that he was using his work for evil purposes and to hurt people.
* ButtMonkey: Particularly when working for Chlordane, who mocks and abuses him, and starts the artificial earthquake by ''throwing'' him against the gelatin mold to trigger the vibrations. And even when he strikes out on his own, you can expect him to suffer some [[AmusingInjury Amusing Injuries]] during the course of the Rangers' efforts to stop him.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: A lot of his evil schemes are driven by a desire to be taken seriously by people. And while he was working for Chlordane, he would frequently demand to be given what he saw as his due respect.
* CardboardPrison: Despite being arrested in every episode, he inexplicably returns to hatch a new evil scheme.
* CardCarryingVillain: Ever since he has fully embraced evil.
* ComplexityAddiction: His plot from "To the Rescue" is a prime example: Create a laser, which would in turn create a giant gelatin mold, which would then be used to cause an earthquake under the US Gold Reserve, for Aldrin Chlordane to steal the riches inside.
%%* DeadpanSnarker: Occasionally.
* EvilRedhead: The hair he has left is orange. This, combined with the style of lab coat he wears, makes him resemble a middle-aged balding [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory Dexter]].
* FourEyesZeroSoul: A very arrogant, entitled, evil MadScientist who wears big, thick glasses.
* LabCoatOfScienceAndMedicine: The old-timey kind that's completely closed up in front and buttons off to one side.
* LargeHam: One of the largest in the series.
* LaughingMad: His grating giggling is quite distinctive.
* MadScientist: In a classic style.
* TheNapoleon: He appears to be about three feet tall. Of course, since he's human, he still towers over the Rangers as much as any human would tower over mice and chipmunks.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: According to a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vysEma2Q-lE "Making Of" special]] it was revealed that Nimnul was a caricature of Bruce Talkington (1949-2000), who wrote for ''Rescue Rangers'' and several other DisneyAfternoon series. Seeing the "real" Nimnul is rather uncanny.
* NoIndoorVoice: He follows the villainous ham tradition of the monologue.
* TheyCalledMeMad: He actually uses this classic line during the weather machine incident.
* TopHeavyGuy: He might be short, but even then his legs are way too tiny.

A fan of the Rescue Rangers, especially for Chip.
----
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: She had a huge crush on Chip, though his reaction to it is one of Chip's {{Jerkass}} moments.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: Blouse, pants, barefoot.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: She seems to be quite a handful for her mother to cope with.
* FieryRedhead: Her idea of a way to win Chip's attention is to charge into a villain's lair and save the day.
* GirlOfTheWeek: She has a crush on Chip, but she does not reappear in the series.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: Bipedal, largely clothed, human-like hair. (Yes, the same list as Gadget's.)
* OneShotCharacter: She appears in one episode only.
* SixthRanger: She often becomes one in fanfic, but not quite as often as Foxglove.
* SmittenTeenageGirl: Played for laughs. Chip is ''extremely'' uncomfortable with this.

A pink bat who starts off as an assistant to an evil amateur witch named Winifred alongside a crotchety snake named Bud and a dim-witted spider named Lou.
----
* AchievementsInIgnorance: See GravityIsAHarshMistress.
* AscendedExtra: Has been given a bigger role in [[Comicbook/ChipNDaleRescueRangers the comics]].
* BadassAdorable: She is a very cute little bat who starts off the episode not being able to carry the weight of a chipmunk, and by the end finds herself able to carry a BRICK.
* BatOutOfHell: SubvertedTrope. She's one of the nicest, most likable characters in the entire series.
* CuteLittleFangs: Part of the overall design in producing a 'harmless villain' bat.
* FeatherFingers: She uses her wingtips, not the foreclaws which a real bat employs as makeshift grippers.
* GirlOfTheWeek: She has a crush on Dale, but she does not reappear in the series. She does return in the official (but short-lived) comic revival.
* GravityIsAHarshMistress: She can carry anything while flying as long as nobody points out that it should be impossible for her, at which point she plummets.
* HeelFaceTurn: Though admittedly she was a reluctant heel to begin with.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: She's written as a very lonely character whose only 'friend' is her manipulative boss.
* LoveAtFirstSight: With Dale.
%%* MinionWithAnFInEvil
* OneShotCharacter: Though much like Tammy, she's still very popular with the fandom. Made a full-time return in the 2011 comics.
* SixthRanger: Literally, and more often than any other OneShotCharacter.
* StalkerWithACrush: She comes on a little too strong to Dale at first.
* SuperStrength: Lampshaded by Dale, who is surprised that a bat could hover while carrying his weight. She promptly realizes he's right and they both plummet to the ground. It becomes clear later in the episode that she does possess this, as seen when she is able to level out a nose-diving Rangerwing by PUSHING it, and when she's able to hover carrying a BRICK, something far heavier than a chipmunk.
%%* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo: Her interest in saving Dale leads to a classic use of this trope.

-> Voiced by: Danny Gans

* AbsentMindedProfessor: Played with a bit, since he's an absent-minded ''test subject.'' However, he seems to have picked up a lot of electrical engineering in the course of his work, and certainly he considers himself a scientist of a sort.
* {{Adorkable}}: Tall, wild-haired and lovably amnesiac.
* AmusingInjury: He's suffered so many shocks that [[RuleOfFunny he's a living capacitor.]]
* BerserkButton: When he found out Nimnul was using science for evil purposes, he was pretty ticked off.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: By Professor Nimnul, who uses him to rob banks. When in this mode, he will attack whoever is threatening to interfere with Nimnul's schemes.
* BrokenPedestal: He genuinely respected Nimnul, and refused to believe the Rangers when told he was evil. He's appropriately enraged when he learns the truth.
* CloudCuckooLander: Pretty bad. It seems to have eased up once he stopped receiving daily electroshock.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Yellow-haired and (when sane) an honest, decent guy.
* HotScientist: At least as far as Gadget is concerned.
* InnocentBlueEyes: He's a basically good guy and has blue eyes.
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: While he's under Nimnul's influence and about to kill Chip and Dale by electrocuting them, they appeal to his affection for Gadget, asking him what ''she'd'' think of what he was doing. It works (although he still drops the wires he was using on himself for an AmusingInjury).
* LabCoatOfScienceAndMedicine: He wears a rat-sized lab coat with the collar turned up (and [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal nothing else]]).
* NiceGuy: He helps the Rangers out in his first appearance without being asked and without expecting any reward, seems completely oblivious to Chip and Dale's hostility towards him where Gadget is concerned, .
* OneShotCharacter: He appears in one episode only.
* PutOnABus: At the end of his episode, he and Buzz (a guinea pig who'd also been used by Nimnul) leave to go work at MIT. Gadget was sad: Chip and Dale were relieved. (Sparky had, without any real effort, drawn Gadget's attention.)
* ShockAndAwe: Suffers from pent-up static discharges. Pretty resilient when it comes to touching bare wiring, too. While BrainwashedAndCrazy, he can and does use this as a weapon against his enemies.
* ShoutOut: Sparky is based on Dr. Emmett L. Brown from ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture''.
* SpearCounterpart: To Gadget, in a lot of ways.
* XRaySparks: His skeleton shows up now and then when he's zapped.
* YouDirtyRat: ''Averted'' hard. Although, yes, he is a rat, he is sweet, kind, moral and completely innocent of any complicity in what Nimnul uses him for.

-> Voiced by: Deborah Walley

A nefarious woman who looks exactly like Gadget.
----
* EightiesHair: Naturally, she has the same hair as Gadget.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: A Hawaiian-style wrap and no footgear.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She uses her resemblance to Gadget to trick the Rescue Rangers into thinking she's Gadget.
%%* DecoyDamsel
* EvilTwin: She looks exactly like Gadget, only her personality is effectively a polar opposite. Though whether or not she's actually related to Gadget is left to {{Fanon}}.
* FakeOutMakeOut: She distracts Chip and Dale a couple times this way, to keep from answering awkward questions.
* FlowerInHerHair: Pretty standard for her: Gadget adding one to ''her'' hair just before the switch was convenient.
%%* GoodEyesEvilEyes
* HairColorDissonance: They even failed at keeping her hair color constant in one single episode.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Her boyfriend Shake'a'bake'a is several times her size.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: Say it with us: bipedal, largely clothed, human-like hair.
%%* IBrokeANail
* IdenticalStranger: To Gadget.
* InkSuitActor: Her voice actress, Deborah Walley, pretty much redid her role as Gidget from ''Gidget Goes Hawaiian''.
* MyNaymeIs: Go ahead, try to spell her name correctly. See SpellMyNameWithAnS below.
* NoMatterHowMuchIBeg: Lahwhinie knew Gadget would try to escape when the dangerous challenges started, so she tells Shaka Baka that she's scared and might chicken out, but wants him to make sure she goes through with it.
* OneShotCharacter: She appears in one episode only.
* TheScottishTrope: The spelling of her name sometimes leads to this.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Apparently it's AllThereInTheManual somewhere (said manual being extremely hard to come by), but no one is 100% sure just how her name is really supposed to be spelled. The Writer's Bible spells it "Lahwhinie", the DVD subtitles spell it "Lawhinie" which is just how most people spell it, and some closed-captions during TV airings spell it "Louwhiney". That's three practically official sources which contradict each other.
** The german synchro actually managed to give her a new name that is just as unspellable.
* TwinSwitch: She tricks Gadget into switching places with her so she wouldn't have to be put through the ceremonial tests that would qualify her to be queen of a Hawaiian tribe.
