- The Ace: Shows a lot of skill and prowess as a street dog, despite being the same age as Scamp.
- Happily Adopted: Invokes this. Angel has been in five families, but could never be in one for long. It's finally played straight when Scamp's family adopts her.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: More like fur of gold. Despite her snarky tendencies , Angel has a kind heart.
- Homeless Heroine: A teen stray. Then, she's adopted by Scamp's family.
- I Just Want to Be Loved: Angel has always wanted to be adopted and loved by a family, but hasn't had such luck. She finally gets this when Scamp's family officially adopts her.
- Inferiority Superiority Complex: Implied. Her snarky and arrogant behavior may be a way to hide the insecurities she has over becoming stray each time by her five families.
- Kid Heroine: She's about Scamp's age.
- The Lancer: To Scamp.
- Like Parent, Like Spouse: For Scamp. Like Scamp's father, Angel is a streetwise stray, helps The Protagonist when they venture from their home, falls in love with the pampered dog, and are adopted by the pampered dog's family.
- Meaningful Name: She acts as a guide and conscience to Scamp on his journey to become a "wild dog". Like a guardian angel. "Angel" is also Greek for "messenger" which she is in the climax, when she informs Lady and Tramp that their son has been taken to the pound.
- Mixed Ancestry: A Pomeranian/Chihuahua mixed puppy.
- Nice Girl: Underneath all of her sassiness and arrogant fašade, Angel really is a generous, friendly and brave puppy.
- Official Couple: With Scamp.
- Parental Abandonment: It's never revealed what happened to her parents. They might have died, separated by accident, or just abandon Angel.
- Pink Means Feminine: After she is adopted by Scamp's family, Angel can be seen wearing a pink bow. She is probably an inversion given her tomboyish personality.
- Puppy Love: About the same age as Scamp and they're already a couple...and literal too.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Scamp's Red.
- Stepford Snarker: Uses her snark skills to mask the actual emotional pain she always feels.
Fluffy, Ruffy, and Scooter (Annette, Danielle, and Collette in the Second Movie)
Annette, Danielle, and Collette (Ruffy, Fluffy, and Scooter in the 1955 comics drawn by Walt Disney)
Voiced by: Debi Derryberry (Annette), Kath Soucie
(Danielle and Collette) in the Direct-to-Video sequel
- Annoying Younger Siblings: Implied. Subverted in the comics (except sometimes for Fluffy, who found her siblings games "undignified" and didn't usually play with them). They usually enjoy spending time together. Just look at them together here◊.
- Bratty Half-Pint: In the sequel, where they spend most of their time reveling in Scamp's misfortune.
- Chromatic Arrangement: In the direct-to-video sequel, each of the girls have a different colored collar. Annette has a blue collar, Collette a red color, and Danielle a white collar.
- Curtains Match The Windows: All of them have brown eyes and have their mother's tannish-brown fur.
- Demoted to Extra: At the start of the comics, all the pups appeared. But as Scamp got more popular, he was the focus, and eventually got his own spinoff comics, while the triplets fell into obscurity. In the sequel, the girls had little to no role in the movie.
- Embarrassing Nickname: In the comics, Scooter, the only boy of the three triplet cocker spaniel pups, and the youngest of all four of the pups, was called the "Baby" only Lady and Tramp could think of a name. Thankfully he gave them an idea◊
- Freudian Trio: Collette is the Superego. Annette is the Ego. And Danielle is the Id.
- Gender Flip: Scooter. In the comics, Scooter was Scamp's younger brother. But in the direct-to-video sequel, all three cocker spaniel pups are female.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: Implied since there always seen in one another's company.
- Messy Hair: Danielle has the messiest fur of her sisters.
- No Indoor Voice: Danielle has the loudest voice of her sisters.
- No Name Given: Pretty much played straight in the direct-to-video sequel. You only see their names in the end credits. Intially they got the same treatment in the comics (except for scamp). However, overtime lady and tramp find names for the three. Fluffy, a prim and proper pup like her mother, and Ruffy, a tomboyish pup who loves to play with her siblings, were named after a female dog tramp once knew called "Fluffy Ruffles." Scooter, the shy younger brother of the girls and scamp, was originally called "Baby" until he scooted far on a slippery piece of ice on the lake, giving him the name Scooter.
- Polar Opposite Triplets: Mainly in the 1955 comics. Fluffy tries to be proper and lady-like, like her mother. Ruffy is rambunctious and doesn't mind getting dirty. Scooter is shy, likes to lay around, and a bit of a scaredy-cat.
- Proper Lady: Fluffy does everything she can to be just like her mother, and spends the most time with her to try and be this. In the direct-to-video sequel, Collette seems to developing into this the most.
- Same-Sex Triplets: Subverted in the original comics. One of the triplets was scamp's shy younger brother scooter.◊ Played straight in the direct-to-video sequel, where they're all girls.
- Sibling Rivalry: Sometimes in the comics, Scooter and Scamp would have this.
- Strong Family Resemblance: All of them are exact copies of their mother.
- Tomboy: In the comics, Ruffy prefers to get dirty, and play with her brother scamp. Danielle is the most rambunctious, loud, and gutter mouthed of her sisters.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Danielle still loves to take baths like her sisters.
- Town Girls: Collette is the Femme, Annette is the Neither, and Danielle is the Butch. All of them are quite girly.

- Heterosexual Life-Partners: Implied with Scratchy and Sparky. Both are old time dogs, are seen together a lot, and both end getting adopted in the same family.
- Homeless Heroes: All of them are strays and are generally good, if not mischievous, dogs. Then all, except Buster, get adopted.
- Gentle Giant: Mooch is the biggest dog of the Gang and is one of the friendliest.
- Keet: Mooch's enthusiasm can only be matched by his big stature.
- Let Me Tell You a Story: Sparky seems to like doing this.
- Meaningful Name: Almost all of them.

- Scratchy is covered in fleas and can't stop with the scratching.

Si and Am
Voiced by: Verna Felton (first film), Tress MacNeille (sequel)
- Anti-Villain: She's not likable by any means but she's not bad, just a Crazy Cat Lady who dislikes dogs and is overly protective of her new nephew.
- Evil Aunt: Averted. Aunt Sarah isn't necessarily evil, but does (unknowingly) cause a lot of conflict for Lady in the first film.
- Fat Bitch: Downplayed. She's a large, snooty, insensitive, and overbearing woman, but not entirely bad.
- Graceful Ladies Like Purple: See Pink Means Feminine. Sometimes her gown appears purple because of the lighting.
- Hate Sink: She's not actually evil, but clearly prefers cats over dogs. And in a movie, where the protagonists are dogs, that is more than enough to make her an antagonist. Not only does she blame Lady for trashing the living room, when it really was her cats who did it. But she also puts her little grand-nephew in danger, when she tries to stop Tramp from saving the baby from being bitten by a rat.
- Heel-Face Turn: Implied at the end when she sends the dogs biscuits for Christmas.
- Horrible Judge of Character: She never gives Lady a chance and thinks her conniving cats are perfect angels.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's mean to Lady, but really cares about her cats and her nephew.
- Kindhearted Cat Lover: Subverted, she is definitely not kindhearted.
- Knight Templar: She thinks she is doing the right thing, but she's a Horrible Judge of Character.
- Obliviously Evil: Yeah, she's a Jerkass, but Aunt Sarah is wholly ignorant of what her pet cats do. Which causes her to legitimately think that Lady is a danger.
- Pink Means Feminine: Wears a pink gown.
- Big Bad: In the first movie.
- No Name Given: In the scripts, he goes by "Herman the Rat". but it wasn't confirmed in the first movie.
- Would Hurt a Child: Goes after and tries to kill baby Jim Jr. That's until Tramp arrives and kills the fiend.
- The Voiceless: No lines.
Voiced by: Chazz Palminteri, Jess Harnell (singing voice)
- Joisey: Buster has a thick, New Jersey accent.
