Tropes associated with Einstein:

Francis
Voiced by: Roscoe Lee Browne

Tropes associated with Francis:
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Insistent Terminology: He refuses to be referred to as "Frank" or "Frankie", a fact that Tito abuses when they fight over what to watch on TV.
  • Large Ham
  • Meaningful Name: Some denominations of Christianity revere Francis of Assisi, who was born into wealth, as the patron saint of animals. Many churches conduct animal blessings on his feast day.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He fancies himself as a Shakespearian actor material and high class, despite being another homeless mutt.
  • The Smart Guy
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Tito.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Plays dead in front of Jenny's limo to distract Winston long enough for Oliver and Tito to steal the radio from inside.

Rita
Voiced by: Sheryl Lee Ralph

Tropes associated with Rita:

Fagin
Voiced by: Dom De Luise

Tropes associated with Fagin:
  • Adaptational Heroism: His book counterpart wasn't a sympathetic character.
  • Anti-Villain: He does thievery and has the dogs do his dirty work, but he does care for them. Plus he's justified in his paranoia his dealings with Sykes and the welfare of the dogs if he gets "sleepin' with the fishes".
  • Cowardly Lion: He does crimes to escape his possible gangster death punishment from Sykes, but he does try to fight against him once he goes too far.
  • The Fagin: An expy of the Trope Namer only having a heart of gold this time around.
  • Homeless Pigeon Person: Except with dogs.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A difference shared with the film adaptation - yes, he's a thief, and was planning to ransom Oliver, but he clearly loves his pets, and when he learns that Jenny is Oliver's owner, he immediately gives up all idea of collecting the ransom (even though he is fully aware that he will be killed if he fails to pay Sykes) in order to return Oliver to her.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: His book counterpart is sentenced to execution at the novel's end.
