The characters from ''Series/FullHouse''.


!Main Characters
[[folder:Jesse Katsopolis]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' John Stamos

* EightiesHair: All three primary male actors are shown wearing mullets at different points in the show's run.
* BackToSchool: To the high school he dropped out of initially.
* BerserkButton: Don't let him catch you with alcohol. It's a case of FridgeBrilliance when you remember that Pam, his sister, was killed by a drunk driver.
* CatchPhrase: "Have mer-cy! "I'm there for ya babe" becomes one later on.
* CharacterDevelopment: Initially, he is portrayed as a rebellious, music crazed biker who didn't seem to enjoy helping his family. As seasons progress, he is shown to be more family oriented (to the point of saying they are more important to him than music) and focused less on producing music and more on providing it like owning the Smash Club and running a radio station
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the early seasons, Jesse was shown being a sports fan such as watching games, and playing football. In later seasons, he hates sports and is shown being uncoordinated.
* CoolUncle: Always a caring uncle to all the girls, especially Michelle.
* TheDandy: He can be pretty conscious about his looks. [[NobodyTouchesTheHair Especially his hair.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Has his moments, like most of the cast members.
* DeathGlare: Usually towards Joey.
* FakeHairDrama: A recurring fear of Jesse's. Some of the [[DreamSequence dream sequences]] depict Jesse with varying degrees of hair loss (one depicted an elderly Jesse wearing a toupee similar to the haircut he had at that time; a later one shows him with hair plugs).
* FirstGrayHair: Gets his first at 29. Naturally, he freaks out.
* {{Flanderization}}: His obsession with his hair and Elvis.
* FormerTeenRebel: A high school dropout, and even in early seasons he was still a rebellious bad boy biker. In later seasons he acts more like a mature adult.
* FriendToAllChildren: He's always reluctant, but ends up bonding with them anyway.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Kids, babies and even animals ''love this guy''.
* HappilyMarried: To Becky, in later seasons.
* HellBentForLeather: His leather jacket.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Danny and Joey.
* HippieParents: He and Becky don't set many limits for their sons and let them get away with everything, causing them to act out.
* ImportantHaircut: Losing his mullet coincided with the start of his CharacterDevelopment.
* NobodyTouchesTheHair: To the point where it borders on being a catch phrase.
* ParentalSubstitute: To the girls, particularly Michelle.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Being played by John Stamos.
* VitriolicBestBuds: He and Joey are good enough friends that they venture into several career paths together (advertising, a radio show,) yet the difference of personalities between a cool, laid-back musician and a goofy, ManChild comedian means they bicker at each other '''a lot.'''

[[folder: Danny Tanner]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Creator/BobSaget

* EightiesHair: All three primary male actors are shown wearing mullets at different points in the show's run.
%%* {{Adorkable}}
* BumblingDad: At times, particularly to D.J., but a very effective one through and through.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: An early episode had Danny reluctantly cleaning the house when the boys' mothers descend upon them. The same Danny Tanner who in later episodes is shown cleaning his cleaning supplies. Though he was known to be a neat freak when he was a child as well. His messiness at the beginning of the series could be attributed to depression over the recent death of his wife.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Danny had moments like this.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Danny kicks Kimmy out for 3 weeks (later 1 week & 6 days) for breaking one of his TV's in the season 3 episode Fraternity Reunion.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Jesse and Joey.
* HiddenDepths: He is a skilled pool player (Joey: He went to school on a billiards scholarship) and dart player (Danny: I minored in darts) and guitarist.
* IronicNickname: Kimmy calls Danny "Creator/MrT".
* MommasBoy: Implied a few times like when Danny said he kissed his parents and the floor when he returned from camp (which Joey promptly said was a day camp) and telling DJ his mom chose his drink till he was 21. May or may not have completely shaken this after Season 3's "The Return of Grandma," after explaining to his mother that most everything he did as a kid was an attempt to make her happy.
* NeatFreak: So much so the trope could be named after him. He thinks of big spring cleaning as an equivalent of Christmas.
* SuperOCD: He upgrades from NeatFreak to SuperOCD during Spring Cleaning.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: He's over six foot and he's quite good looking.

[[folder: Joey Gladstone]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Dave Coulier

* EightiesHair: All three primary male actors are shown wearing mullets at different points in the show's run.
* TheArtifact: Unlike Jesse (the actual uncle), he was just a good friend that agreed to move in to help Danny raise the girls. Over time, the girls had gotten old enough to take care of themselves and Rebecca also moved in after marrying Jesse.
* BigEater: Not to the extent that Steve is, but he's known for his appetite.
* CatchPhrase: "Cut it out!"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He's a grown man who watches cartoons. That by itself wouldn't mean much. The fact that he constantly talks to people using cartoon voices for no apparent reason does.
* CoolUncle: Although not an actual uncle. Danny's daughters only call him "Uncle Joey" a few times in early episodes. Despite not being related to the family he acts as an uncle to the kids of the house.
* DumbBlonde: Played straight.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Jesse and Danny.
* HiddenDepths: He has a pilot's license, a teacher's license and could give a surprising detailed response to a question about cartoon violence.
* HonoraryUncle: He is the childhood best friend of Danny who usually handles the day-to-day raising of the kids by doing chores like making meals, driving the kids to school appointments, and after school activities, taking care of Michelle as a baby, and helping the kids with their homework. He also becomes their Uncle Jesse's best friend and Jesse insists his children call Joey, "Uncle Joey" as a sign of respect.
* LethalChef: Two words: Flounder Tarts.
* ManChild: Loves cartoons and junk food.
* ParentalSubstitute: To the girls.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Jesse.

[[folder: Donna Jo "D.J." Tanner]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Candace Cameron

* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Sometimes.
* CatchPhrase:
** "Oh my Lanta"
** "Whoa, baby!" Usually at the same time with Kimmy.
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: To Kimmy.
* CoolBigSis: She's often jealous of her younger sisters, but she loves them.
* GenerationXerox: Pretty much the premise of Fuller House. Like her father she's windowed raising her kids with the help of her best friend but instead of her brother in law like her uncle Jessie it's her sister helping as well.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Kimmy.
* HormoneAddledTeenager: Played straight with both D.J. and her friend Kimmy.
* MissingMom: Several months before the series' began, Danny's wife and the girls' mother, Pam, was killed in an accident caused by a drunk driver.
* OnlyKnownByInitials: Her real name is Donna Jo Tanner.
* OnlySaneWoman: Compared to her sisters and her best friend Kimmy.
* ShesAllGrownUp: Nearly everybody who has ever watched the show has commented on how she....developed nicely in the show's later seasons.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Stephanie's Tomboy.
* TraumaButton: DJ gets very upset at the thought of others getting drunk, given what happened to Pamela.


[[folder: Stephanie Tanner]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Jodie Sweetin

* AdorablyPrecociousChild: In the first seasons unless Michelle became old enough to take that role.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: She loves reading D.J.'s diary and eavesdropping on her telephone calls.
* BrutalHonesty
* CatchPhrase: "How rude!" "Well pin a rose on your nose" and "Hot dog." She dropped these as she got older.
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially towards Kimmy.
* GenkiGirl: She's perky, talkative and the most excitable of the girls. This gets toned down as she gets older.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Mr. Bear, see below.
* LittleMissSnarker: The snarkiest one in the family. She and Kimmy are frequently making off-handed jabs toward one another throughout most of the series.
* MiddleChildSyndrome: She even has an episode dedicated to her fear that she'd never be as good or loved as her sisters. She has a ImagineSpot where both DJ and Michelle upstage her at everything. (She became an astronaut, went to Mars, and learned to fly. She gets upstaged when DJ went to get the mail and Michelle blinked.) Later there's a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when they remind her that there are great sides to being the middle, such it being the best part of the cookie and mistakes they made with DJ they won't make with her, depressing DJ but making Stephanie happy.
* MissingMom: Several months before the series' began, Danny's wife and the girls' mother, Pam, was killed in an accident caused by a drunk driver.
* MouthyKid: She pretty much epitomizes this trope in the early seasons. She gets better later on.
* OutOfFocus: Starting around Season 6, Stephanie gets less episodes that focus on her (unless they deal with tough issues like smoking or joyriding) and is mostly added in for a cold opening, subplot, or as an extra character in the main plot.
* SecurityBlanket: Mr. Bear. In an aversion of the usual storyline for this trope, she actually ends up keeping it all through the series.
* ShesAllGrownUp: Like DJ she became more crushworthy as she hit puberty.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to D.J.'s Girly Girl.
* TomboyishPonytail: She often wears this in her hair in Seasons 4 and 5.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: In Seasons 4 and 5.
* TookALevelInCynic: Starting in Season 6, Stephanie becomes more sarcastic and negative.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Gia in the later seasons.

[[folder: Michelle Tanner]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Creator/MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen

* AdorablyPrecociousChild: The precocious yet lovable youngest child with many Catch Phrases.
* AndStarring: In the last season, the twins are credited as "and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as Michelle".
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: In later seasons.
* BrattyHalfPint: Could be justified because she's the youngest, but many people found her "cute" antics and smart-mouthing bratty. Her brattiness is taken UpToEleven in the Disney World episode.
* BreakoutCharacter: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen were not given their own billing in the opening credits during the original first-run ABC series; they were not permanently added until Season 2. Michelle becomes the most well-known character and towards the end of its run ''Full House'' was pretty much "The Michelle Show". The Olsen twins (arguably the best known actresses from the show) even get the AndStarring treatment in the last season. It ends up becoming too much for them and they have since retired from acting.
* CatchPhrase: Several. "You got it dude!" "Aw nuts" "You're in big trouble, mister!" etc. She eventually dropped them when she got older, though.
* CheerfulChild: Being a young child, Michelle is quite playful and adventurous.
* CoolBigSis: To her cousins Nicky and Alex in the last couple of seasons.
* TheCutie: The studio audience goes “aww" a lot whenever Michelle does something "cute".
* DaddysGirl: Being the baby of the family, Michelle always receives the most attention.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: During her toddler years—it's even lampshaded by her uncles a few times. She knows she is cute and can get away with a lot of things because of it.
* GirlishPigtails: In some episodes.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Her stuffed pig named Pinky.
* InSeriesNickname: "Squirt" by Kimmy (which Michelle hates) and "Munchkin" from Uncle Jesse (which is fine with her).
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She can be bratty and mischievous, but she eventually realizes the errors of her ways by the episode's conclusion and she deeply adores her family.
* KarmaHoudini: Big time. Even though the plot of Season 4's "Crimes and Michelle's Demeanor" involved Danny realizing he was letting her get away with too much, then deciding to punish her. Lampshaded occasionally in the rest of the series. Although usually when Michelle does something wrong she DOES get a talking-to and occasionally she'll get punished, ex: The episode "Sisters in Crime".
* KidAppealCharacter: Young children often referred to ''Full House'' as "The Baby Michelle Show".
* LittleMissSnarker: When she is older.
* MissingMom: Several months before the series' began, Danny's wife and the girls' mother, Pam, was killed in an accident caused by a drunk driver.
* MouthyKid: Less so than Stephanie, but is still snarky enough to qualify.
* NeverMyFault: In later seasons.
* PrecociousCrush: Michelle gets a crush on Steve after she gets a Valentine's Day present from him and wants to marry him. Steve goes along with it believing she's pretending. After he realizes the truth, Michelle is heartbroken at first but she gets over it.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: In season 2.
* SpoiledBrat: Especially in later seasons, partially because Danny rarely disciplined her for several years and is by far the most spoiled of the three sisters.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: As Michelle gets older, she gets more episodes revolving around her, especially starting in Season 6. The writers brought it to the point where Michelle was essentially the main character by the end of the series.
* SweetTooth: Is a fiend for cookies, ice cream, chocolate and anything sweet.

[[folder: Becky Donaldson Katsopolis]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Lori Loughlin

* CuteButCacophonic: Becky can't sing. Oddly, though, "Our Very First Telethon" showed her singing a duet on live TV with Danny, and her voice was decent.
* DeadpanSnarker: She can be sarcastic.
* HappilyMarried: To Jesse, in later seasons.
* HippieParents: She and Jesse are not very good at disciplining their boys or teaching them right for wrong, causing them to act out such as destroying Michelle's science project or keeping them up all night.
* LethalChef: Rebecca suffers from this reputation, much to her annoyance. An episode involves her and Michelle learning how to cook together, however, with rather appetizing results to subvert the trope.
* OnlySaneWoman: She is practical and often seen giving advice to her three nieces.
* ParentalSubstitute: To the Tanner girls (like Jesse and Joey).
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: In season 3.
* TeamMom: She becomes a sort of mom substitute to D.J., Stephanie, and Michelle

[[folder: Kimmy Gibbler]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Andrea Barber

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Towards several of the men on the show, especially Jesse (she even slapped Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the butt).
* BookDumb: She's a straight-D student and gets rejected by literally every college in California.
* ButtMonkey: No one seems to tolerate her, and she's often insulted and made fun of by everyone, even the adults.
* CatchPhrase: "Whoa, baby!"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: According to D.J. "Kimmy's not an airhead. She just hates thinking."
* DeadpanSnarker: In early seasons she's very snarky towards the family.
* DropInCharacter: Like [[Series/FamilyMatters Steve Urkel]], she serves as the weird annoying neighbor to the main family.
* {{Expy}}: in Fuller House, she pretty much fills the role Joey did in the original series, wacky best friend helping raise her best friends kids, but she has a daughter.
* GenkiGirl: She is usually perky and goofy in a weird way.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With D.J.
* HiddenDepths: Despite generally being not particularly bright, it turns out that Kimmy speaks fluent Spanish, though after some intense tutoring from DJ. She also somehow got a perfect score on her driver's exam. No, she didn't cheat (though she did on her first time). She's just a surprisingly really good driver (a fact that surprises Danny). Kimmy's also an expert drummer, keyboard player and bagpiper. She can also ride a unicycle.
* HormoneAddledTeenager: Played straight with both D.J. and her friend Kimmy.
* TheNicknamer: "Squirt" for Michelle, "Hairboy" for Jesse, "Mr. T" for Danny.
* NoIndoorVoice: Occasionally when she enters the house she'll scream DJ's name in a loud, grating voice.
* RummageSaleReject: She has absolutely ridiculous taste in clothes.
* ParentalNeglect: Implied.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: In season 5.
* SmellyFeet: One of the central running gags is that Kimmy Gibler has smelly feet. Every time she takes off her shoes, the other characters can't stand her (though they usually can't stand her as it already is). Apparently this runs in her family, as she mentions in one episode that DJ probably won't want to spend the night at her house since her father has just run out of foot deodorant.
* StrawLoser: She's pretty much there to make D.J. and the Tanner girls look good.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Kimmy loves trout.
* WackyGuy: A female example, she's a strange, clueless, dorky girl who snores and has smelly feet.

[[folder: Nicky and Alex Katsopolis]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit

* AlwaysIdenticalTwins: Played by Real Life twins.
* BrattyHalfPint: Neither of the boys are given much in the way of boundaries, causing them to act out.
* CatchPhrase: Sometimes when one says something the other will say double that ie "I want dessert." "Double dessert." "Shame on them." "Double shame."
* CheerfulChild
* CoordinatedClothes: Occasionally.
* CousinOliver: The twin sons of Jesse and Becky added to the cast in later seasons, when Michelle is already older.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: When Michelle grows older, the role gets filled by twins Nicky and Alex.
* KarmaHoudini: The worst they get for the below mentioned moment is a no longer amnesiac Michelle demanding her toy back.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In the finale, they take full advantage of Michelle's amnesia to get her to give them one of her toys. Probably justified because they're kids and don't understand the seriousness of the situation--but "justified" is not the same as "excused". There was also an earlier episode where they destroyed Michelle's science project and didn't know they weren't supposed to.
* TricksterTwins: They are both mischievous and cause much stress to their parents' lives.

[[folder: Steve Hale]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Scott Weinger

* AscendedExtra: He first appeared in "Sisters in Crime". In the next season, he becomes her steady boyfriend and a recurring character for the whole season.
* BackForTheFinale: DJ frets over not being able to get a prom date, but Kimmy finds one for her - Steve.
* BigEater: Gained some [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] in the Season 6 intro.
* LoveInterest: To D.J.
* LovableJock: He is the captain of his wrestling team.
* NiceGuy
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: In season 6.
* PutOnABus: After season 7, when he and D.J break up. They get together again in the final episode.

-->'''Michelle:''' "Okay, we'll play Hide-and-Seek. You hide and we'll try to find you. ({{Beat}}) Maybe."

[[folder: Pam Tanner (neé Katsopolis)]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Christine Houser

* CoolBigSis: To Jesse.
* DeadpanSnarker: Has shades of this, as seen in one of Danny's home movies.
* DrunkDriver: The very cause of her death, and it's implied the drunk died, too, as the family does not make any mentions of court or settlements (which would be expected if the drunkard survived).
* MissingMom: To the three girls. Makes an appearance in "Goodbye Mr. Bear" during a home movie.
* PosthumousCharacter: The premise of the series is that she was killed in a car accident, so Jesse and Joey moved in to help Danny with his daughters.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Discussed in one episode. Danny claims she was the most perfect woman he ever knew, but Jesse quickly reminds him of her flaws. ("And when we were little she used to hold me down and stick carrots up my nose!")
