->'''Voiced by:''' George Clooney

* AffectionateNickname: Mrs. Fox calls Mr. Fox "Foxy."
* AlliterativeName: The school's records indicate his name is F.F. Fox.
* BadassBoast: "Your tractors uprooted my tree. Your posse hunted my family. Your gunmen kidnapped my nephew. Your rat insulted my wife ó and you shot off my tail. ''Iím not leaving here without that necktie''."
* 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.
* ItsAllAboutMe
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LoveableRogue
* OffTheWagon: Actually stated by Mr. Fox when he's apologizing to his wife about stealing birds again.
* RedHeadedHero
* ScarsAreForever: [[spoiler: Mr Fox's tail becomes detachable, permanently. Also the cut Mrs. Fox gives him that remains throughout the film.]]
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Manly Man to Kylie's Sensitive Guy.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Fox's fur is red so he technically counts for this trope.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He's an local newspaper columnist, and perpetually frustrated that nobody reads his column, and, in general he feels a need to be perceived as "fantastic", or he doesn't feel good about himself, even before he's done anything particularly heroic.
* 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]]
->'''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.
* NiceGirl: She is cautious and responsible in her personality.
* SmurfettePrinciple: The only one of the main characters who's a female.
* StacysMom: Some of Ash's classmates have commented on her attractiveness.
* WomenAreWiser: In the opening, Mrs. Fox suggested the smartest routes that would get her and Mr. Fox to the birds faster.

[[folder:Ash Fox]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Jason Schwartzman

* AmbiguouslyGay: Or trans. Wears a feminine sweater and a cape made of lace. Also, when his mother is talking about 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]]
->'''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''.
* BigLittleBrother: Noticeably taller and more mature than his older cousin Ash.
* 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.

* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The Sensitive Guy to Mr. Fox' Manly Man.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He admits to having a fear of thunder.

[[folder:Clive Badger]]
->'''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.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Despite his arguing with Mr. Fox about his reckless behavior, he nonetheless trusts him and they are best friends.

->'''Voiced by:''' Willem Dafoe

Hired by Bean as his Secret Cider Cellar security guard. Maybe.
* 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.

[[folder:Boggis, Bunce, and Beans]]
[[caption-width-right:350:From left to right:Bunce, Boggis, and Bean.]]
->Bogis '''Voiced by:''' Robin Hurlston
->Bunce '''Voiced by:''' Hugo Guinness
->Beans '''Voiced by:''' Michael Gambon

Three farmers that soon become antagonistic towards Mr. Fox after he steals from them.
* {{Badass}}: Bean is a perfect shot with his gun and is the only one of the three who can come close to Mr. Fox in cunning.
* 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 Big Bad Triumvirate]]: Despite this, 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}}
* FatBastard: Boggis.
* HairTriggerTemper: Bean.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Although they may have went overboard, they weren't wrong in trying to get Mr. Fox, since he was stealing from them.
* LeanAndMean: Bean.
* TheNapoleon: Bunce.
* TheStoic: Boggis and Bunce, especially Bunce, whose sour expression never changes once.
* TerribleTrio: They are played like, with Bean being the BigBad, and Boggis and Bunce his sidekicks.

* 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.)
* 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."
