Characters: The Fox and the Hound


  • A Tod Named Tod / Meaningful Name
  • Berserk Button: Do not threaten Vixie in any way. Or Copper, for that matter.
  • Big Damn Heroes: When he saves Copper and Amos from the bear.
  • Children Are Innocent
  • Fiery Redhead: When the situation calls for it.
  • Made of Iron: Survives being swatted by a bear multiple times and the rather long fall that apparently killed said bear.
  • Missing Mom: In-Universe- He never does learn what happened to his mother when he was a kit.
  • The Hero
    • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: If he had listened to Big Mama during the "Lack of Education" song or had gone back home when Copper told him to, Chief wouldn't have gotten injured and his relationship with Copper probably wouldn't have become strained. Oh, and he'd probably still be living comfortably with Widow Tweed.
      • He would've never met Vixey though.
  • Papa Wolf: Todd would normally run from Copper and Amos when they were after him. However when they almost harm Vixey he fights them off with sheer ferocity. Even wounding his former friend.
  • Too Dumb to Live: For disregarding Big Mama's "Lack of Education" lesson, which was complete with animal skins and implements used to trap/kill wildlife.
    • Not only that, but he completely blows off Copper when he tries to tell him to go home. And later, he ignores Vixie's warning about the forest being too quiet, which results in him nearly getting trapped and both foxes being smoked out of their den. For a fox, Tod sure does have his fair share of these moments.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Copper, and later to Vixey.


Widow Tweed

Big Mama

Dinkey and Boomer


Voiced by: Sandy Duncan

  • A Dog Named Dog: Her name is derived from "vixen" and she's, well, a vixen.
  • Falling in Love Montage: "Appreciate the Lady."
  • First Girl Wins: Is the first female fox that Tod meets (though she's also the only one he meets).
  • Genre Savvy: Knows something's up when the forest around them becomes unusually silent one morning. Tod, on the other hand...
  • Official Couple: With Tod.
  • Satellite Love Interest: She has barely any personality, due to being introduced around the time Tod was put in the nature reserve, and meeting and immediately triggering Tod's affections within two minutes of her first appearance. She is implied to have known Big Mama for some time from the sound of her introduction, but that's pretty much all we know about her besides the fact she and Tod love each other.
  • Spell My Name with an S: Is it Dixie, Vixey, Trixie, or Vixie?
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: She completely vanishes during the bear fight scene, showing up again only in the very final scene with Tod.
    • She kept running when Tod turned back to fight the bear.
