Tropes associated with Duchess:
- Cat Stereotype: She is a white cat, and therefore elegant and high class.
- Cool Cat
- Damsel in Distress: When she's locked in the oven with her kittens.
- Glamorous Single Mother: Naturally, she doesn't stay single.
- Glurge Addict: Though even Thomas admits his praise of Duchess is incredibly cheesy, she loves it.
- Good Mother: She loves her children dearly and wishes nothing but the best for them. Even when she wakes up in an unfamiliar place, her first instinct is to locate the kittens.
- Official Couple: With Thomas O'Malley.
- Parent with New Paramour: Although her kittens don't mind in the least.
- He Is Not My Husband: She vehemently assures the Gobble sisters that she and Thomas aren't married, accidentally offending him by belittling their relationship.
- What Beautiful Eyes: And we even get a close up of them as O'Malley's telling her this.

Tropes associated with O'Malley:
- All Girls Want Street Cats: Duchess points out several times to her children that they are better than alley cats, but seems to have no problem with romancing Thomas. Then again, he was being very charismatic.
- Batman-Gambit: His stunt with the milk truck shortly after meeting Duchess and her kittens for the first time. As Duchess points out, he could have been killed.
- Boisterous Bruiser
- The Casanova
- Cats Are Snarkers: Especially toward the Gobble sisters. Since they were being complete jerks to him, the audience can sympathize.
- The Charmer
- Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: After being saved from drowning by the Gobble sisters. It's not surprising he feels this way, seeing as the sisters mistook his attempts to get out of the water for swimming lessons and almost drowned him themselves trying to "teach" him.
- Cool Cat
- David Versus Goliath: Taking on a pitchfork-wielding Edgar at the film's climax.
- Distressed Dude: He jumps into a river to save Marie, which quickly backfires because he really can't swim.
- The Drifter
- Expy / Pigeon Holed Voice Actor: In the original version, he was voiced by Phil Harris, who also did Baloo in The Jungle Book. Granted, Thomas is more of a sophisticated, suave and adult version of Baloo than an expy, but still.
- Heroic Build: Subverted: The Gobble sisters say he has one, but once they find out he's not actually married to Duchess they point out every last one of his physical flaws.
- Hidden Depths: He actually really wanted to settle down.
- Hot Dad: According to even Madame at the end.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: His decision to say goodbye to Duchess, because she can't leave Madame.
- Last Name Basis: To everyone except Duchess.
- Let's Get Dangerous: In the climax. He manages to be impressive even in a comedy film.
- Lovable Rogue
- Official Couple: With Duchess.
- Overly-Long Name: Abraham de Lacy Giuseppe Casey Thomas O'Malley.
- Papa Wolf: Soon enough.
- Parent with New Paramour
- Red-Furred Hero
- Stop Helping Me!: To the Gobble sisters. Completely justified.
- Street Smart

Tropes associated with Scat Cat:
Scat Cat's Gang
Left to right: Billy Boss, Hit Cat, Shun Gon and Peppo.
A group of alley cat musicians who play jazz with Scat Cat. They help rescue Duchess, O'Malley and the kittens at the climax of the film.
Tropes associated with Scat Cat's gang:
- Adaptation Name Change: If you accept the names given at Wikipedia and The Disney Wiki (which are used here) as official, all the alley cats have different names in the Spin-Off comic O'Malley and the Alley Cats (Hit Cat becomes Cyril, Shun Gon becomes Chino, Billy Boss becomes Boris and Peppo becomes Luigi).
- Anachronism Stew: Hit Cat is a late 60s hippie—in 1910.
- Cats Are Mean: Along with their leader, the alley cats taunt Roquefort while preparing to eat him—until he tells them that O'Malley, Duchess and the kittens are in danger. They immediately rush to the rescue, allowing Roquefort to lead them.
- Chekhov's Gunmen: They're introduced as O'Malley's friends, only to turn into Big Damn Heroes by the climax.
- Cool Shades: Hit Cat wears them.
- Hot Blooded Sideburns: Peppo has them.
- Multinational Team: Hit Cat is British, Shun Gon is Chinese, Billy Boss is Russian and Peppo is Italian.
- Nice Hat: Peppo wears one.
- True Companions: To each other, to Scat Cat, to O'Malley, and eventually to Duchess and the kittens. O'Malley lampshades this: "They're kinda rough around the edges, but if you're ever in a jam, wham! They're right there."
