The characters of the Housepets! web comic. Everyone after the Sandwich family (Peanut, Grape, and their "parents") are in alphabetical order.
Peanut Butter Sandwich
Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Although he can focus on specific issues that he's interested in, it's not that difficult for something to come along that draws away his attention. He has also been known to get into Unusually Uninteresting Sight territory a few times because of it, being completely glued into whatever he has his attention on at the time, missing important key bits of information.
Secret Keeper: Joey's cat Cosplay until he found out the cats already knew, Sabrina and Fido's forbidden relationship, and Res's role in creating the Pridelands books series.
Super Speed Reading: Although it goes against the typical usage of the trope in that in this case it doesn't suggest super intelligence but rather just a lovable quirk. He did mention having cleaned out the local library, though.
Weirdness Censor: He's surprisingly lax about having a psychic girlfriend, being friends with another psychic, subsequently discovering that All Myths Are True, and finally finding out that said girlfriend has some sort of partnership with a freakin' dragon who is ALSO in love with him.
Afraid of Doctors: As seen in this strip, Grape's first encounter with a veterinarian seemed like meeting Cthulhu. She still harbors a distrust of vets. Of note: animals in the Housepets! universe act much like furry children.
Cheshire Cat Grin: Naturally, though not quite as often as you'd expect. Max seems to be rubbing off on her.
The Chosen One: Averted twice. Pete initially had plans to make Grape his avatar, and claimed Spirit Dragon interfered by getting Tarot involved. Pete strongly suggested he still had ways to make Grape his avatar at his temple, but Zach ended up waking Pete up by accident. Since then, Pete said there was no point anymore and started switching his interest towards King.
Everybody Was Kung-Fu Fighting: Channeled this as a kitten. Once she acquired a broom, The kidnapper and the alligator didn't know what they were getting into afterwards.
Extreme Omnivore: The type one variety. Dog food, mud, burritos, and whatever Maxwell put into her sandwich (Hint: It was green), she's unphased by it. When asked what the weirdest thing she ate was? Dolphin.
Fangirl: Lampshaded in Pridelands. She talks about the series in a straight and intelligent manner, but even she gets caught offguard from something as distracting as lions in tribal gear. She's also been caught writing fanfiction more than once (self-insert on one occasion), and then there was her letter to one of the actors of the movie...
Meaningful Name: Her fur color was part of Mr. Sandwich's motivation for wanting to adopt her, because it's the color of grape jelly.
Secret Keeper: Of Joey's cat Cosplay until she found out the cats knew anyway, Fido and Sabrina's forbidden relationship, and Res's role in creating the Prideland series of books.
Tom Boy: The comic was a good few months old before anyone realized Grape was female, much to her annoyance. The revelation didn't change her interactions with anyone except Peanut and Max. Lampshaded and punned here.
Women Prefer Strong Men: Grape is this for leopards due to how tall and muscular they are. Grape notes to Sabrina, however, that she is at least aware she doesn't have a serious shot at them (or Jata in this case).
Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: As usual, there was confusion with her re-introduction. But in her first appearances she had the eyelashes Rick Griffin usually gives female characters in the strip. Then again, the fluorescent pink hearts helped.
Green-Eyed Monster: It's fitting Bino has green eyes, because he gets jealous over Sasha quite often. He also has a particularly evil-looking jealous stare. He also is highly sensitive to any attempts to take over what is his regardless of logic or sanity stating otherwise. He's highly antagonistic towards his successful older brother, Fido, and even attacks King on Christmas for "Acting like he owned the place" simply because his name was "King".
Iron Buttmonkey: Seriously, he's been through quite a bit of serious injuries that are realistic and dangerous from what we have seen in the comic, but he always manages to get better again by the following two arcs.
Jerkass: Even with those who consider him friends he tends to be quite disagreeable, becoming downright hostile to those he's not friendly with. Fox openly wonders why he and Bino are friends on several occasions.
Tall Poppy Syndrome: Has a relentless need to target anyone he thinks is too full of themselves, seen with King ad his brother.
Bruce & Roosevelt
Ambiguously Gay: At the very least they've been pictured cuddling together under a blanket, while watching football. And their conversation here seems to imply something.
Kangaroos Represent Australia: Downplayed. They put on a very stereotypical Australian demeanor to entertain the zoo-goers, but in the presence of regulars like Peanut and Grape, they immediately drop the act (and seem to quite loathe it). They still exhibit some Australian habits every now and then.
Roosevelt: OH THANK GOODNESS every single word feels like throwing up
Bruce: "Shrimp on the barbie?" We're HERBIVORES
Affectionate Nickname: In universe Ex-boyfriend Pete calls her Cerb. Out of universe the readers often call her Cerbs.
Dark Is Not Evil: She might have dated Pete for a million (and one) years, but by now she's well aware of how much of a jerk he is and doesn't approve of his actions. There's also her job change to Grim Reaper, which she claims to have taken because it allowed her to work with children.
Catch Phrase: "Hi, I'm Daisy!" As of yet, it's the only thing she's ever said in the comic.
Distracted By The Shiny: On the cover of the third book, she appears to be more interested in the tag on King's collar than in him table dancing while drunk.
Living Prop: Pretty much. It gets turned Up to Eleven during the Wolfs' Christmas Party, when she's seen actually hanging from the ceiling with a bunch of party decorations.
Noble Wolf / Savage Wolves: Utterly averted in the "Temple Crashers" Arc. Sabrina recruits Yellow Hat Daryl expecting him to act as the "warrior" in their expedition, but he responds that he's a total coward. He also Screams Like a Little Girl when they're attacked by gargoyles inside the temple.
Nice Hat: The Daryl-with-the-hat's defining feature being the yellow cap he always wears.
Rascally Raccoon: Falstaff qualifys as the brains and schemer of the pair. Averted with Truck who just faithfully follows him.
Those Two Guys: To the point that when Falstaff is seen at King and Bailey's wedding alone, some readers wondered where Truck was. Then Fridge Brilliance struck — he was most likely raiding the reception foods while Fals acted as lookout.
Fiddler and Keys
Ambiguous Gender: Sort of. One's a boy and the other's a girl, but it's never specified which one is which.
Broken Pedestal: For Fox, after Fido reveals his relationship with Sabrina on live television. Though Fox is really more upset that he kept it a secret and has a hard time blaming him for it, especially given all the consequences it had already brought about at that point.
Chick Magnet: Especially after he graduates from the K-9 police academy.
Thicker Than Water: Despite how much of a jerk Bino is, he still hangs out with him and genuinely seems to enjoy it. This comes back to bite him, however, when King was shouting for Fido and Fox to stop Bino from breaking his watch. Fido stood outside the club within ears-length of the whole thing and was willing to let everything unfold, dismissing the event as petty. It took a threat from his girlfriend to stand up to Bino.
Beware the Nice Ones: He's a pretty nice guy on any given day, despite hanging out with Bino. However, he gets surprisingly violent when the PETA members kidnap him, even threatening to rip them apart if he gets free. Ironically enough, he eventually gets that opportunity in Heaven's Not Enough and almost takes it.
Dramatic Drop: He dropped the T.V. Remote when he finds out about Fido being a cat lover.
Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: During his off-hours he is always seen wearing only a Rokushaku or Etchū fundoshi, a Japanese loin cloth. When at work he also wears a uniform and while at school he wears a shirt and tie tucked into the fundoshi.
Affectionate Nickname: Out of Universe - Rick sometimes lists him as "Four Finger Discount" Jack ( his quotes ) in the tags.
An Arm and a Leg: His entire right arm is gone, lost in the past in an unknown incident.
Multiple Choice Past: How he lost his arm. According to him, it involved fighting a moose, a bear, and a crocodile at the same time. According to Elaine, it involved trying to manually fix the kitchen's garbage disposal. Which one of them is the Lemony Narrator here (or if they both are) is up to you.
Sticky Fingers: Is infamous among the pack for his tendency to employ his "four-finger discount".
Expy: of Tom. He even shares his name with Tom's first incarnation.
The Voiceless: As would befit an expy of Tom, he's only ever spoken in quotes from the Tom And Jerry cartoons.
"Well Done, Son" Guy: Other than his father's banishment of Sabrina and her 'Dad' and closing of his country's borders, Jata appears to want to rule in his Father's pawsteps.
The Jeeves: Classic Loyal human butler to the Milton Ferrets, always answering 'yessuh' to any task required of him - be it putting one of his employers in the corner so they can do their business or being told by Jata that 'you're a credit to your species'.
Furry Fandom: Joey (a dog) likes to cosplay as a cat. He also draws well enough that he charged Peanut $10 for drawing a panel of Peanut's comic Spot (Superdog) in a much more detailed style than it's normally drawn.
Immune to Drugs: In this strip we see him stuck with ten tranquilizer darts, and suggestions of having been hit with even more from similar darts being held by two of those present, with no apparent effect on him. He even made a game out of it just to see who is the last predator (A.K.A the wolves) standing.
Lame Pun Reaction: Most of the time Karishad shows up, you can expect this reaction due to something he has been doing to follow-up the pun with.
The Thing That Would Not Leave: Everything indicates that he's skipped the zoo and is now living in Babylon Gardens, apparently with Tarot. It's mostly subverted, though, because outside the usual invoked Lame Pun Reaction, no one, including Tarot, seems to mind him moving in. Tarot even uses him as a ladder, occasionally.
Donut Mess with a Cop: Averted, the only time we see Kevin with a donut, it's on Doctor's orders to gain weight.
Dumb Jock: Exceptionally so. While not the brightest, Kevin performs extremely well in the physical department and treats even the simplest mandatory physical exam as if it were the Olympics (even the urinalysis portion). His BMI is actually low enough to where the vet forces him to go on a brief diet of foods that specifically contain excess calories. He also offers to give Sasha access to the police gym when they hook up.
Dumb Muscle: Anything that doesn't involve tackling, or that he can't make involve tackling, is not likely to warrant his attention, although one time he did pick up a Smart Ball and save the police dogs from a bunch of archaeological artifact thieves.
Going Native: Appears to gradually become more comfortable with his new form, to the point of marrying Bailey.
Happily Married: Gets married to Bailey at the end of the "King and I" story arc.
Heroic Self-Deprecation: King has let it slip a few times that he doesn't exactly think highly of himself. Even when he was still Joel, he fully recognized & acknowledged that PETA did many amoral things, and that kidnapping & trying to kill Fox was wrong. He mentally refers to himself as a loser at one point (also suggesting that he's thought this about himself for a while), and when he proposes to Bailey, he tearfully admits that he has several flaws and makes mistakes, and that he doesn't really think that she'll say yes. She does.
Secret Keeper: His human past, and Sabrina and Fido's forbidden relationship.
Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Joel had two dogs and a cat that he very much loved when he was a kid, but his parents were abusive towards them. Eventually they ran away and took him with them, but on the streets they quickly turned on him and ultimately abandoned him. Hence, his initial aversion to pets in general.
Ascended Extra: Was Ret Named with his own tag after beginning life under the tag "Joey's Creepy Friends".
Cheshire Cat Grin: He loves to do this whenever he's trying to drive a point home. Which is a lot.
Ear Ache: The bite mark on his right ear. It's currently unknown how he received it.
Heroic Bystander: Was one back when him and Fox were kidnapped years back. This was, Ironically enough, also when he also started to develop his insecurities towards Grape, since it wasn't Max that saved Fox and Grape, But Grape herself. And she only started to save them when Max got in trouble.
High On Catnip: To the point of taking catnip from complete strangers.
Jerk With A Heartof Gold: It's been said in the cast page that Maxwell is known for getting kicks out of annoying people, and it's been shown on occasion he has done jerkish things in the past (Which Grape calls him out on), but it's shown that he also doesn't want to be considered malicious to some of his friends.
Muscle Angst: Decides to work out while Grape is busy fangirling on Jata, fearing that Jata will cause her to lose interest over Max. Turns out Grape likes him more for being adorable than muscular anyway, since she's well aware how bad he is at acting tough.
Secret Keeper: Res's role in creating the Pridelands series of books.
Scare 'Em Straight: This is what happens to Max after a night in a haunted house. Compared to the other things being done to scare the others that night...
Unsettling Gender-Reveal: Just like Peanut, it was played Straight as well at first. Although Maxwell straight out tried asking her for a date once he found out.
Miles and Lucretia are your typical happily mated couple trying to fit in to suburban human society; he working for a group of Millionaire ferrets, she trying to remember that most Babylon Gardens residents prefer their food cooked before it is served.
Happily Married: The two are mated, not married, but they do seem to be a couple without any unhappiness or conflict between them.
Mama Bear: Hinted at with Lucretia (she is a wolf, after all). In one strip when she's alone with King, she instinctively holds him close too her in a protective fashion. The Alt Text chalks it up to King invoking this kind of response from most people because of his size & appearance, and Lucretia is acting as she would if he were one of her pups.
Meaningful Name: Intentionally. Miles states that the reason wolves wait until maturity to choose a real name is so that they can take time to learn about themselves and pick one that represents them well.
No Name Given: Intentionally with the cubs, who won't receive permanent names until they reach a certain age. This hasn't stopped them from coming up with rather... interesting names for themselves for the time being.
Cloud Cuckoolander: They built a theme park based on theme parks. They were trying to come up with a theme, so they put tons of ideas on a board and threw a dart... and the dart hit the board's name: "Theme Park Ideas."
Conspicuous Consumption: One of them is given to using the Milton fortune to buy anything shiny, including a flashy silver sequined jacket made of diamonds.
Inexplicably Identical Individuals: Only some of the Bigglesworths are related, but they all look pretty much the same. Things get even weirder when they do things like give role call or go on dates.
Planet of Steves: They are at least ten different cats, all named Mr. Bigglesworth (yes, even the girls). They blame it on their owner being a stereotypical Crazy Cat Lady, but occasionally they use it to mess with people.
Animal Wrongs Group: In a world where animals are fully capable of saying they enjoy being owned, PETA is even more despised then ever.
Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: His first appearance portrays him in a pretty decent light, but it doesn't last. Again, he's sort of a jerk. Towards the end of the "King and I" story arc, he appears to throw King a bone, figuratively speaking, by giving him the option to have his life as a human back immediately after King has become relatively comfortable as a dog, and is about to marry Bailey.Ouch.
The Unpronounceable: "Pete" is supposedly just a nickname given to him by Peanut, who couldn't pronounce his real name when he told it to him. This doesn't explain why everyone else calls him Pete, even other astral beings who've known him for who-knows-how-long.
Broken Pedestal: Played with and mostly subverted. While his owner does take credit for his work, Res wants it that way due to being very shy, and feeling indebted to her for taking him in when he was a stray.
Creator Breakdown: A minor case. Part of the reason why he visits the Sandwiches is because he's tired of "eating and breathing Pridelands", and needs a break.invoked
Childhood Marriage Promise: Towards Jata. She didn't take it seriously, but to her defense, she was only six months old. It ends up being taken too literally by Jata, as he ignores the fact that Sabrina already tried brushing him off a few times with 'Concord' and Fido, and he still tries to marry her.
Friend to All Living Things: She can't bring herself to kill the animals she manages to catch, so she tasks Fido with taking care of them instead. That's how Fido acquired his Head Pet, Spo.
Genius Ditz: Either this, or she's practicing Obfuscating Stupidity, as she was able to compose a sonata in her head without ever sitting down at a piano, and knew all along that her boyfriend Bino was regifting her, after spending a good while acting like his presents were the best things ever.
She also writes dog food scripts.
Idiot Savant: If Sasha is as stupid as others say, she's this.
Stepford Smiler: Shades of type A with a heavy helping of denial. She comes off as an airhead most of the time, but is cheerful and friendly with all the other pets and mainly serves as comic relief. Then on Christmas Eve, we get this:
King: "Aren't you going to go home?" Sasha: "No, Daddy locked me out again 'cause I didn't get him any babes at the party. I think he just forgets when he's mad."
Interspecies Romance: It's heavily implied that she has a thing for Peanut, much to Pete's and Kitsune's enjoyment, and Tarot's annoyance. Later, she tries to invoke it fully by having Peanut choose between her and Tarot. She seems to have gotten over it now, at least for the time being.
Casanova Wannabe: He tries to hit on Squeak for a bit, though she rejects his advances due to being in a relationship with Joey. He gets turned off slightly when he inquires what she sees in him, and she promptly demonstrates...
Claustrophobia: He's not particularly fond of staying in Fido's locker.
Head Pet: Often he hitches a ride aboard Fido's head, after having been given to Fido by Sabrina.
Voluntary Shapeshifting: She's capable of transforming into a much larger, more monstrous form with the help of Spirit Dragon's powers. Thus far it's only been used during the battle between Dragon's and Pete's avatars.
Willing Channeler: All available evidence points to the relationship between her and Spirit Dragon being mutually satisfactory. Other than quarreling over Peanut's affection, that is.
Your Mind Makes It Real: Tarot's mental projection takes Peanut and Grape's usual pretend playing WAY over the top in this fashion note in this instance, turning Max into lava and Grape into a deep cavern, though Peanut says that it sometimes gets "out of hand". And then Max and Grape decide it would be better to play Pridelands...
Detective Animal: He is hired to act as liaison between the K-9 unit and forensics. He's decent, if a bit eccentric.
Ambiguous Disorder: Aside from his eating disorder, there's something else up with him, alright. No one can quite peg it, though. It's pointed out that his weight remains consistently the same despite the fact that he never exercises, and pretty much eats, sleeps, and watches TV... while consuming upward of 57,000 calories per week... which is scientifically impossible, according to Marvin.
Tiger: Ha! I will never get tired of how you and the other dogs point out that my name is in fact that of a large cat, and that I hang out with a cat! Both: Hahahahahahaha! Tiger: I WILL KILL YOU I WILL KILL YOUR WHOLE FAMILY\\
Badass Cape: The long piece of cloth worn around his neck has this effect, especially while billowing in the wind dramatically.
Badass Grandpa: As it comes with theterritory, he is certainly no exception. He catches a full-on punch from Jata (who is also quite ripped) without reacting at all, then proceeds to totally own the leopard off-panel.
Cassandra Truth: Soon after Jata's introduction, Deadeye non-verbally decides that he doesn't like him for some reason. He was more on-the-ball then anyone realized...
Ear Ache: Almost all of his left ear appears to have been bitten off.
The Stoic: He never speaks at all, and his expression is always the same stark, unwavering and onlooking stare, no matter what's happening around him or what the situation is. He does, however, crack a smirk once Jata makes the mistake of throwing a punch in his general direction.
Happily Adopted: Zigzagged. He was glad to get out of the pet store after spending most of his life there, but the combined weirdness of witnessing and/or getting involved with the antics of the neighborhood pets, being unwillingly worshiped by the local wildlife, living with Tiger, and receiving relatively little attention otherwise has all caused him to wonder if it's worth it.
