- Boisterous Bruiser: For a dog, he's really tough.
- Character Development: By the sequel, Tramp has become more accustomed as a house dog and tries to get his rambunctious son to follow the rules — to the point of being overbearing. By the end, he learns to lighten up.
- Clear Their Name: Lady immediately clears Tramp's by showing the dead rat.
- The Drifter: Initially, he just go wherever he pleased.
- Family Theme Naming: He and his son's names have an -amp in their names.
- Former Teen Rebel: In the first film, the Tramp was a stray dog who railed against the domesticated life, and spent his time doing things like chasing chickens and helping other stray dogs escape from the dog catcher; this naturally changed when he met Lady, so the second film has their son Scamp growing tired of the domesticated life and wanting to be a stray, totally ignorant to the fact that his father was once one
- Friend to All Children: Implied in the first film when he does the "goochy goo" thing with a puppy.
- Good Parents: He and Lady become caring and fair parents to their pups.

- Lady Killer In Love: Tramp has a long background with other... dogs. However, despite that, he develops genuine feelings for Lady.
- Living Legend: Revealed to be one in the sequel.
- Lovable Rogue: Lampshaded by Peg when she sings the tune "He's a Tramp". According to the lyrics "he's a scoundrel, he's a rounder, he's a cad, but I love him." and "I only hope he'll stay that way."
- Meaningful Name: "Tramp" has a few meanings. The most overt is that of a person, often homeless, who travels from place to place in search of food and work. And indeed, Tramp is a stray dog who spends almost all of his time outdoors with the occasional visits to various families and businesses who feed him. Less obvious (at least to younger viewers) is that "tramp" can also be a slang word to describe someone who is known to sleep with a number of people. And before Tramp settled down, he was something of a player.
- Mistaken for Murderer: Aunt Sarah's reaction to seeing the room wrecked and the baby on the floor, with Tramp and Lady happily in the corner. Sarah immediately accuses Tramp of trying to murder the baby and has him taken away to be put to sleep immediately.
- Morality Chain: To Buster. When Tramp left to go be with Lady, Buster started the philosophy of only looking out for himself.
- Nice Guy: A Lovable Rogue who rescued Lady without asking for anything in return.
- No Name Given: A curious case. "The Tramp" is obviously not meant to be his actual name, just a title referring to the fact that he's... well... a tramp.

He also visits a different family each night of the week in search of handouts, and each family calls him by a different name.
- Official Couple: With Lady.
- Papa Wolf: Tramp takes on this role to kill the rat and save the baby. He's also this to his only son in the sequel.
- Really Gets Around: Lady gives him a long list of all his ex-girlfriends and asks him about it. The only reason they got away with Tramp fully admitting his involvement with all these women in a movie released in the 50s was because the characters are dogs.
- Red Is Heroic: After being adopted by the Darlings, Tramp now sports a red collar, which is meaningful considering how he killed The Rat.
- Retired Badass: By the time of the sequel, Tramp has grown used to being a house pet, but still retains his old skills and street smarts and will not hesitate to use them.

Voiced by: Bill Baucom (first film), Jeff Bennett (sequel)Trusty is the neighbor of Lady, and possibly the oldest dog in the film. According to Jock and himself, he was once a service dog working alongside his grandfather, the esteemed Old Reliable, to track down and capture criminals before eventually having his age catch up to him, which is when he supposedly lost his sense of smell for a number of years. Though Trusty firmly believes his strong sense of smell remains intact, Jock believes otherwise (though he refuses to admit it, not wanting to hurt Trusty's feelings).Now retired, Trusty spends his days alongside his best friends, Jock and Lady, who hold a strong kinship with the old dog.

- The Nose Knows: He's a bloodhound, a dog breed well known for their powerful noses, but Jock claims that Trusty's sense of smell has faded with old age. He's mistaken. Trusty's sense of smell is too acute to concentrate on one scent at a time. Thanks to rain concealing the dogcatcher's trail, Trusty's nose led him and Jock to Tramp in the first movie's climax.
- Old Dog: He always likes telling one of his old stories.
- Retired Badass: He used to hunt criminals through the swamp in his youth. When he and Jock decide to help save Tramp, he puts his tracking skills to good use once again.

In the original movie, it's his birth that really kicks off the plot and his well-being serves as motivation for most of the characters, but he himself barely appears on-screen.

Voiced by: Peggy Lee (first film), Tress MacNeille (sequel)Si and Am are Aunt Sarah's twin Siamese cats are the secondary antagonists later teitary antagonists in Lady and the Tramp and its 2001 sequel.
- Ambiguous Gender: It's not clear in the film itself. Apparently, they are supposed to be female according to the storyboard.
- Cats Are Mean: They wreck the house, try to steal milk from the baby, and then frame Lady for all of it when she tries to stop them, and they don't even get a comeuppance.
- Creepy Twins: Is that song stuck in your head yet?
- Dragon Lady: The Siamese cats exhibit most of these stereotypes during their Villain Song and following Wounded Gazelle Gambit.
- Karma Houdini: The Siamese Cats get Lady in trouble with a Wounded Gazelle Gambit and go unpunished for the trouble they cause. They originally showed a bit more concern (as did Aunt Sarah) upon finding the rat in the house but this was cut. The closest thing to a punishment they get is one nasty scare in the sequel, courtesy of Scamp and the Junkyard dogs ruining the picnic.
- Meaningful Name: Siam is the former name for Thailand.
- Single-Minded Twins: They act alike and they're essentially the same character.
- Those Two Bad Guys: A pair of villainous cats.
- Villain Song: We are Siamese, if you please...
- Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Pulled one off that convinced Aunt Sarah to give Lady a muzzle and leash.
- Yellow Peril: The feline equivalent. Par for the course regarding Siamese cats in a Disney flick.
Voiced by: Verna Felton (first film), Tress MacNeille (sequel)Aunt Sarah is the main, later secondary antagonist (later supporting character) and the aunt of Jim Dear in Lady and the Tramp, and appears in its 2001 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: Downplayed. 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. She still retains some of her dog-hating tendencies in the sequel though (even while she is able to put up with Tramp being around her at the time), namely preferring to celebrate Independence day rather than go searching for Scamp and calling him a monster when he and the stray dogs show up uninvited at the family's picnic. She's not entirely wrong and unfounded this time around though; to be fair, Scamp does misbehave a lot and the stray dogs really were there to cause havoc.
- 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 dearly loves Si, Am, and Junior, but where Lady is concerned 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.
The Rat is a vicious, nameless rodent, and the final and true main antagonist in Disney's Lady and the Tramp.
- All There in the Script: According to the scripts, he goes by "Herman the Rat", but this was never confirmed in the first movie.
- Chekhov's Gunman: It ventures into Lady's yard at the start of the film and is quickly chased out. It is not seen again until the climax.
- Evil Gloating: In the film's climatic moment, the rat manages to reach Jim Junior's crib before turning its gaze towards Tramp, planting a devious smile on its face as it does so. Whatever its intentions were, it could not have been any good.
- Reused Character Design: Design-wise, the rat looks almost identical to the rats that are briefly seen outside the Evil Queen's spell chamber in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
- The Voiceless: No lines, save for some squeaks during its battle with Tramp.
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Unlike any other character or animal in the movie, the Rat is a silent, feral creature with the creepiest design you can imagine. From the first moment the rat appears, Lady pauses her cheerful, playful, lighthearted romp around the yard, and immediately snarls and chases it away. The Rat also puts up a much better fight against the Tramp than the three dogs he trounced earlier, even wounding the Tramp a little bit, all the while trying to sneak in and kill the baby.
- Villainous Underdog: No pun intended. During its climactic battle with Tramp, it's clear that the rat has a disadvantage in both size and strength. However, it still manages to fight back several minutes and to be a threat to Jim Junior's life.
- Would Hurt a Child: Goes after and tries to kill baby Jim Jr. That is, until Tramp arrives and kills the fiend.
- You Dirty Rat!: Provides the page image. It's never outright stated that the Rat wants to harm the baby. However, it is heavily implied as it jumps into the baby's crib and throws a sinister, taunting smile at Tramp's direction. Fortunately, Tramp manages to throw it out before it can really do any potential harm, though it does wind up causing indirect harm due to Tramp accidentally tipping the crib over in the process.
Voiced by: Chazz Palminteri, Jess Harnell (singing voice)Buster is the main antagonist in Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure.
- Big Bad: Of the sequel. He starts out as another affable rogue like Tramp was in the original, but his true nature soon reveals itself when he orchestrates his would-be protege Scamp's downfall... just to spite the young pup's father.
- Catch-Phrase: "Buster's trouble is Buster's trouble".
- Deadpan Snarker: Often uses a sarcastic tone when mocking others.
- Evil Counterpart: To Tramp. Both were street dogs who scoffed at the idea of being in a family. However, after Tramp fell in love with Lady, he began to change his way of thinking and even became a pet as part of his Character Development. In contrast, Buster remained a street dog, still kept his selfish outlook, and ended up with no one.
- Evil Former Friend: Tramp was both Buster's mentor and best friend, who taught him everything he knows about surviving the world of street dogs. Then Tramp decided to turn his life around when he met Lady, and Buster took this as the ultimate form of betrayal. Since then, he's been filled with nothing but bitterness and hate, to the point where he's no longer capable of seeing past his own selfishness.
- Faux Affably Evil: He pretended to be nice to Scamp when he tried to make him a Junkyard Dog. But in reality, he is a selfish, angry, arrogant jerk since he used Scamp to avenge Tramp for "betraying" their friendship, even though he should have been supportive of Tramp for finding love.
- Freudian Excuse: Buster has an undying hatred towards families and housedogs because he feels they took away his best friend, Tramp, when the latter fell in love with Lady and started a family.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: A failed one with Tramp.
- Homeless Hero: Inverted. He's a stray dog, but he's no hero.
- I Work Alone: Even though he has his own gang, Buster prefers doing his own thing and doesn't believe in getting or receiving help.
- Jerkass: Buster is mean, cruel, selfish, deceitful, serious, vain, unfriendly, backstabbing, unsupportive.
- Joisey: Buster has a thick, New Jersey accent.
- The Leader: Of the Junkyard Gang. Until the end, when the gang decided to find a family.
- Manipulative Bastard: To Scamp.
- Mixed Ancestry: Buster's breed appears to be a Doberman/Rottweiler mix.
- Remember the New Guy: He was Tramp's best friend when Tramp was a street dog, but doesn't appear in the original movie, only in the sequel.
- Revenge by Proxy: After finding out that Scamp is none other than Tramp's son, Buster hatches a plan that would ensure the young pup would never reunite with his parents. And all because he wants to spite Tramp for "abandoning" him years ago to live a "cushy, pillow life" with Lady.
- Villainous Crush: Has a disturbing attraction to Angel. He's an adult dog and she's a puppy.
- Villain Song: "Junkyard Society Rag".
- We Used to Be Friends: He and Tramp used to be best friends when Tramp was still a street dog. Their friendship ended when Tramp fell in love with Lady and went to live with her.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: The last we see of him is being trapped under a pile of garbage. We don't know if he got out, died of starvation, or any other fate.
Voiced by: Frank WelkerReggie is the tertiary antagonist of Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure.
- Angry Guard Dog
- Dumb Muscle: He's huge. Not exactly the smartest though.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: To the extreme. He will attack anyone and anything.
- Jerkass: A violent dog who will attack anyone for little to no reason.
- Non-Standard Character Design: He looks more realistic and monstrous than any other dog in the movie, more so than Buster himself.
- Would Hurt a Child: Has no problems going after Scamp, a puppy.
