* AlliterativeName: The school's records indicate his name is F.F. Fox.

* CharacterTics: Whistles and clicks his tongue as his "trademark".
* CunningLikeAFox: It's downplayed, but he's actually very intelligent. He knows the Latin names of all but one of the main characters' species, for instance, and he plans his escapades like a ChessMaster.
* FantasticFoxes
* FatalFlaw: His refusal to listen to the advice of others.
* [[spoiler:GlasgowGrin: The scar given to him by his wife looks like this in some shots.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: [[spoiler: He may not look it, but Mr. Fox has self-esteem issues. If he doesn't have everyone thinking he's "fantastic", he feels like there's nothing to him.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He has a hard time listening to others and has on various occasions gone behind his wives back to get back into the feel of robbing. However, he does love her and is very proud of his son who wants to be an athlete.
* LoveableRogue

* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Manly Man to Kylie's Sensitive Guy.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Fox's fur is red so he technically counts for this trope.

* TooDumbToLive: Mr. Fox gets carried away sometimes, edging into this trope.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He has lupophobia (fear of wolves) and gets apprehensive at the mere mention of them.

[[folder:Mrs. Fox]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrs_fox.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Meryl Streep

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Partly. Though it made her regret marrying him, Felicity can't help falling for his "fantastic" wild animal nature.
* AlliterativeName: Felicity Fox.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She ''viciously'' scratches Mr. Fox's face after it's revealed that he lied to her.
* GoodParents: Mrs. Fox is a good mother, handling Ash's moods very well, though she has moments where she must warn Ash to mind his tongue.
* TheConscience: She acts as the voice of reason and conscience to her husband's more reckless ways.
* MamaBear: When Ash is being kidnapped by Rat, Mrs. Fox shows a courageous motherly attitude, even to the point of using violence to protect her son, if necessary.
* MyGirlIsNotASlut: Heavily implied that before she settled down with Mr. Fox, Mrs. Fox very much averted this.
--> '''Rat''': She was the town tart in her day. Wild and footloose and as pretty as a mink stole...
--> '''Kylie''': Is that true?
--> '''Mr. Fox''': No. I mean, she lived, we all lived. It was a different time. Let's not use the double standard. She marched against the-

[[folder:Ash Fox]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8.JPG]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Jason Schwartzman

* AmbiguouslyGay: Or trans. Wears a feminine sweater and a cape made of lace. Also, when his father is talking about his mother being pregnant with him, Ash awkwardly points out that the baby could have been a girl. When he has heart-shaped red lips from something he ate at the end of the movie, he looks completely feminine. He is upset to lose Agnes to Kris, however.
* BrattyHalfPint: To Kris at first, even though Ash is older.
* CharacterTics: Twitches his ear and/or spits when aggravated.
* EmoTeen: Ash before the CharacterDevelopment.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear
* GreenEyedMonster: The main reason for his initial dislike of Kristofferson is because everyone, including his father, describe him as a ''natural''.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's not nice to Kristofferson at all, but warms up to him at the end.
* ManInWhite: A younger version, which represents his odd personality.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: ZigZagged, to say the least. See below.
* SuperHeroesWearCapes: His white outfit with a towel cape seems to be based on the White Cape comics he's seen reading.
* TheUnfavorite: Ash considers himself this, seeing himself inferior to his athletic and more popular cousin, and his father's attitude towards said cousin doesn't help.
* WellDoneSonGuy: All he ever wanted was his father's approval.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Ash enjoys wearing a feminine wool sweater and a lacy cape.

[[folder:Kristofferson Silverfox]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_thing7.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Eric Anderson

Kristofferson is Mr. Fox's nephew (from his wife's side) and cousin to their son Ash. He stays with his aunt and uncle due to his father having double pneumonia.
----
* TheAce: To put it simply, he's a ''natural''.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Despite being the ''younger'' cousin, Kristofferson beats up a bully who was messing with Ash.
* BigLittleBrother: Noticeably taller and more mature than his older cousin Ash.
* BrutalHonesty: Tends to do this sometimes.
-->'''Ash''' ''(After Kristofferson fights off a bully for him)'': I can fight my own fights.
-->'''Kristofferson''': ... No, you can't.
* FullyDressedCartoonAnimal
* MeaningfulName: His last name, "Silverfox", references his gray/silver fur.
* NiceGuy: A consistently polite person, who at one point states he hates being dishonest to people.
* TheOneWhoWearsShoes: Out of the entire cast, Kristofferson is the only one to wear shoes.
* PrettyBoy: Kristofferson is somewhat like [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom the fox version]] of this.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: ZigZagged like crazy. Ash and Kristofferson practically take turns being the sensitive one to the other's manly man. Kristofferson is a polite, soft-spoken pretty boy, and meditates hours a day, but he also knows karate and he's extremely athletic. On the other hand, Ash is more emotionally delicate, border-line cross-dresses, and is described as "just different", but he also spits constantly, chases Agnes and strives to be the better athlete and earn his father's approval. Character development rounds them both out.
* WaifFu: He knows karate and is shown to be very skilled in it, in one instance using it to defend his cousin.

[[folder:Kylie Sven Opossum]]
[[quoteright:272:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kylie.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Wally Wolodarsky

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Perhaps the most blatant example of several.
* MisplacedWildlife: A possum in what appears to be the English countryside.
* NiceGuy: Mr. Fox basically calls this out as his special talent in the "latin names" scene.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Mr. Fox' Manly Man.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He admits to having a fear of thunder.

[[folder:Clive Badger]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/badgeroffice.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Bill Murray

Mr. Fox's lawyer, and owner of the flint mine.
----
* HiddenDepths: In Badger's office, he has a picture of a group of badgers in soldier uniform. Badger's skills with explosives might come from this military heritage.
* MadBomber
* MrExposition: He gives the description of the main antagonists.
* {{Pyromaniac}}: He enthusiastically claims to be an expert in explosives, and he's not wrong.
* UndyingLoyalty: He is very loyal to Mr Fox, who considers him to be his best friend.

[[folder:Rat]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ratcider.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Willem Dafoe

Hired by Bean as his Secret Cider Cellar security guard. Maybe.
----
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the novel, Rat is cowardly, ruder and a reclusive drunk. He also had no connections to Bean but in the film. He and Mr Fox have history, wields a switchblade and works for Bean as a guard of his cider. Rat is also sexist as he regards Mrs. Fox as the town tart "back in the day". He easily gets past Mrs. Fox and Weasel to kidnap Ash but is stopped by Mr. Fox after putting up a decent fight against him.
* DeathEqualsRedemption: [[spoiler:Discussed with Rat. He did help them out, but he was "still just another dead rat in a dumpster behind a Chinese restaurant."]]
* KnifeNut: He owns a switchblade.
* PsychoForHire
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Rat seems to consider himself this, though how much the third requirement (or the first) actually applies is questionable.

->'''Voiced by:''' Jeremy Dawson

* TheBully
* FullyDressedCartoonAnimal
* TheOneWhoWearsShoes
* UnusualEuphemism: He calls Ash a wet sandwich as if it's a common insult.
-->'''Beaver's Son:''' Why's your cousin such a wet sandwich?
-->'''Kristofferson:''' I beg your pardon?
-->'''Beaver's Son:''' What's that mean?
-->'''Kristofferson:''' It means I didn't understand what you just said, a wet sandwich?
-->'''Beaver's Son:''' Yeah, a wet sandwich. He's too short, he dresses like a girl, he's...''[[RunningGag (Gestures his hands)]]'' different.

[[folder:Boggis, Bunce, and Bean]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/big_thin_short_trio_fantastic_mr_fox_7782.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:From left to right:Bunce, Boggis, and Bean.]]
->Bogis '''Voiced by:''' Robin Hurlston
->Bunce '''Voiced by:''' Hugo Guinness
->Bean '''Voiced by:''' Michael Gambon

Three farmers that soon become antagonistic towards Mr. Fox after he steals from them.
----
* BerserkButton: Bean does not like the idea of giving up against a fox.
* BigBad: Bean is clearly the leader of the three, and is much more intelligent, competent and intimidating than his cohorts.
* BigBadDuumvirate: Well, ''Triumvirate''. Despite Bean being the most antagonistic, in the eyes of the animals, all three are their greatest enemies.
* BigEater: Boggis eats ''12'' chickens a day.
* BigThinShortTrio: Boggis, Bunce and Bean (One fat, one short, one lean).
* {{Determinator}}: They really want to kill that fox. [[spoiler: First they tried ambushing him with firearms, digging under the hill with pickaxes and shovels, bought construction vehicles to uproot the tree, detonated hole they dug with construction vehicles, called all 138 men under their farms to lay siege to the hill, and then flooded the animal's burrows with apple cider to flush them into the sewers, took Kris hostage, Bean's security Rat attacks the protagonists in the sewers, and ultimately try to stop Mr. Fox back at Bean's own farm before they escape. The trio finally seemed to give up at the end, but they are anything but done, and remain vigilant for the foxes return, as shown by the news.]]
* FatBastard: Boggis.
* FlatCharacter: In the film, Boggis and Bunce who receive very little characterization and even fewer lines. They really just act as Bean's cohorts, agreeing to him, and acting as allies to pool their resources toward a mutual goal.
* HairTriggerTemper: Bean.
* InformedFlaw: Badger, in addition to calling them the meanest and the nastiest, he also calls them the ugliest farmers in the history of the valley, when in all honesty, they don't look too much of an eyesore, especially compared to how they look in the book. Them being mean and nasty is true, though.
* JabbaTableManners: Averted with Boggis. While he hits a number of the common tropes being a VillainousGlutton and FatBastard who is snacking most of the time, he's not shown to be a particularly messy eater especially when compared to the animalistic sloppy eating of the protagonists.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Although they may have gone overboard, they weren't wrong in trying to get Mr. Fox, since he was stealing from them.
* LeanAndMean: Bean.
* MoreDakka: The amount of ammunition they shot at the fox in the film is uncounted for.
* OneMarioLimit: While all three are seldom referred to as "Mister", this trope is most likely a contributing factor for [[Series/MrBean Bean]] in particular.
* TheNapoleon: Bunce.
* TheStoic: Bunce maintains his sour expression throughout the movie. It's especially noticeable when Bean realizes they've been outsmarted and starts wrecking their trailer in a tantrum. Bogis is surprised at the outburst while Bunce is just sitting unmoved waiting for the Tantrum to subside.
* TerribleTrio: They are played like, with Bean being the BigBad, and Boggis and Bunce his sidekicks.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Boggis - chicken; Bunce - homemade doughnuts with smashed up goose livers injected into them; Bean - strong alcoholic apple cider.
* UncleanlinessIsNextToUngodliness: According to the narration, [[HatesBaths Bean never bathes]] ("he never even washed"), and he's hard of hearing because his ears are clogged with residue. (The other two are probably unhygienic too; Mr. Fox says in an early chapter that he can smell them so easily because they stunk.)
* VillainousFriendship: Only in the movie, in the book they can't go a minute without arguing with each other.
* VillainousGlutton: All three farmers, but especially Boggis, who eats three chickens for every square meal of the day (plus dessert).
--> "That's twelve in total, per diem."
* WeaponOfChoice: Bean carries a Luger pistol, which is skinny and long much like himself. Boggis is armed with a double barrel shotgun, and Bunce carries a long range hunting rifle to accommodate his own small stature.
