* CheerfulChild: For the most part. He's good-natured and upbeat, and while he does have a strong mischievous side, he's on the whole ''far'' less trouble than Ellsworth.
* CompositeCharacter: A translation version. Since he and Ellsworth seldom appear in the same story, some translations of the comics (like the Norwegian one) tends to treat them as the same character.



* {{Flight}}: His biggest asset is that he can fly.



* LargeHam: Not all the time, and since he's a comic book character it's not always that noticeable, but he's got a bit of a fondness for ChewingTheScenery, especially if he has an audience.
* MotorMouth: He's a bit of a chatterbox; he can go on at length about pretty much any subject if you let him.

* BadassDecay: When he first appeared, even Black Spot was terrified of him, and Pete admits he's the only criminal who ever escaped him only because of sheer luck, but in later appearances he's not the infallible cop of his debut anymore.

* ShoutOut: Prebbles Blackstone is named after Pebbles Flintstone from ''Main/TheFlintstones''. The why probably has to do with ''"The Creepy Case of Ghost Rock Basin"'' being a Western Publishing era comic when Western Publishing at the time also produced comics for Creator/HannaBarbera properties.

Added DiffLines:

* ReformedBully: His history with Mickey and Goofy is revealed to be based on this in one of the stories: a kid nicknamed Sammy The Harrasser used to bully everyone at the school they and their friends went as a kid, but everyone finally had enough of his schenanigans when it seemed like that he had stolen a number of items from them, including the teacher's diamond engagement ring. Instead of joining in with the rest of the class to blame him, Mickey and Goofy believed him when he insisted that he didn't do it and it didn't take them long to discover that a ThievingMagpie had stolen the items instead. As a result, everyone apologized to him, he promised to clean up his act, asked everyone to stop using his bully nickname and use his actual name instead: [[CanonCharacterAllAlong Seamus O'Hara]].


* TheWorldIsNotReady: Why he shares almost nothing of his discoveries. Considering [UsefulNotes/AtomicBombingsOfHiroshimaAndNagasaki what happened in the real world between his original appearance and his return in "The Delta Dimension"]] (something he actually alludes to) and what happens in the latter story when Pete gets his hands on the blueprints of some of his inventions, you can't deny he's right.

Added DiffLines:

* ILoveNuclearPower: All his inventions are directly linked to nuclear power.
* LackOfEmpathy: Shows this trait in "The Delta Dimension", where his comment on [[UsefulNotes/AtomicBombingsOfHiroshimaAndNagasaki what happened between that story and his original appearance]] is "Mankid took my formulas and used them ''as they wanted''. And in the meantime, I got a bit ''forward of that''".

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoAboveItAll: Usually a serious and calm character, he can get into the antics of his men, or even crazier, at a moment's notice, such as when a creative judge sentenced Pete to work as a cop and O'Hara partnered him with a new officer with SuperOCD.


* InformedSpecies: She's a cat and reasonably if ambiguously looks like one on her own, but she looks nothing like any other cat to ever share a panel with Mickey Mouse.

* {{Familiar}}: The Princess has a pet raven, nameless but referred to as Birdie, who can translate for her.
* FlowerInHerHair: Two, though technically no hair.
* LoveRedeems: Her affection-turned-love for Mickey makes her a lot kinder by the end of the story than she was at its beginning.
* MightyWhitey: In the original comic and several of its republications (in color), the population of Dead Man's Isle is brown and in the possession of overly large lips. The exception is the Princess, who is white and has proportionate lips. When Mickey sees her, he even cries out "A white goddess!". Acknowledging the blatant racism, more recent publications have made changes. The 2011 version by Boom! Studios, for instance, has removed the lips and given everyone, the Princess included, green skin. In this version, Mickey exclaims "Wow! A goddess!"
* NoNameGiven: She's only ever referred to as "the princess" by her familiar.
* OrWasItADream: As she, Mickey, Pluto, and Birdie escape Dead Man's Isle following various subterranean explosions, the Princess gives Mickey a medal and then disappears into the fog with her familiar. Then Mickey wakes up, discovering himself, Pluto, and the captain afloat on some wreckage from the previous storm. He could blame it all on a dream, but he still wears the medal.
* QuestGiver: The treasure of Captain Skidd is for whomever kills the Monster of M'Hunga. [[spoiler:There are, in fact, two.]]

* TheTrickster: A mild example, but the Princess does like playing pranks. She gives Pluto the ability to speak for just a few seconds to upset him, Mickey, and Pete after she heard them discussing to be careful around her.
* ZombifyTheLiving: The natural protection of Dead Man's Isle that the Princess happily exploits. The island is divided in an inner area, only accessible through an underwater tunnel, and an outer area. The outer area is covered in volcanic gas that causes people to walk around in a trance known as The Walking Death. It isn't stated if there's a cure for this.

Once she discovered that Goofy, who was suffering amnesia, had an eye for what got audiences hooked, she hooked him. She [[TheNicknamer nicknamed]] him "[[GoodLuckCharm Lucky]]", explicitly noting she didn't care about his real name, and dragged out his offer to review her programs. She had no interest in seeing him cured and cultivated his new personality for her own gain and benefit. And when Mickey found out about Goofy's amnesia and came looking to cure him, she got dirty. Her employees were instructed to block any contact attempts by Mickey Mouse and she took Goofy on a vacation to further discourage the meddler. He came looking for them in Monkey Carlo anyway, so she [[{{Frameup}} planted a loaded deck on him]] and then alerted security. Mickey tried to reach Goofy again while skiing, prompting Madison to knock him off the piste when rushing him by. Mickey, badly injured, last showed up

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mickey_mouse_madison_king.png]]
[[AC:First appearance: ''"Being Goofy"'', 2004]]

A television tycoon who semi-unintentionally exploited Goofy for a while.
----
* BeautyMark: She has one on her right cheek.
* HeelFaceTurn: For all her tricks, Madison was moved by Mickey's and Goofy's reunion. She acknowledged she'd been a heel and ended Goofy's involvement with the King TV Empire.
* IgnoreTheFanservice: One occurs when she's on a date with Goofy and he talks about the flaws of the program offering on TV. In the midst of his rant, Madison asks if he likes her gown. [[NotDistractedByTheSexy His response?]]: "That's ''it!'' A ''game show'' where contestants hafta wear ''awful fashions!'' It can't ''miss!''". Madison takes it in stride, reverting to boss mode for a phone call to get Goofy's idea on the air. The comment also doesn't stop her from wearing the gown on a later date.
* InSeriesNickname: Madison is also known as "[[GenderBlenderName Mad King]]" in the newspapers.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Even if "I know what's best for Lucky" was as much a distraction as it was sincere, Mickey forgoes his one chance to cure Goofy because he learns that his friend is, in fact, happy with his new life and returns Madison's feelings.
* KarmaHoudini: Madison may not have meant (all that) badly and [[LoveMakesYouEvil understandably was afraid to lose Goofy]], but she did a lot of awful things. Once she discovered that Goofy, who was suffering amnesia, had an eye for what got audiences hooked, she hooked him. She [[TheNicknamer nicknamed]] him "[[GoodLuckCharm Lucky]]", explicitly noting she didn't care about his real name, and dragged out his offer to review her programs. She had no interest in seeing him cured and cultivated his new personality for her own gain and benefit. And when Mickey found out about Goofy's amnesia and came looking to cure him, she got dirty. Her employees were instructed to block any contact attempts by Mickey Mouse and she took Goofy on a vacation to further discourage the meddler. He came looking for them in Monkey Carlo anyway, so she [[{{Frameup}} planted a loaded deck on him]] and then alerted security. Mickey tried to reach Goofy again while skiing, prompting Madison to knock him off the piste when rushing him by. Mickey, badly injured, last showed up during a skydive, where Madison activated his parachute early so he'd lose distance, but it caused Mickey to land against Goofy's head some minutes later, restoring his memory. The touching reunion of the two friends finally made Madison back off, but she only lost Goofy because of it. The money she'd made and the new course of her cable stations and network remained hers while she paid off Goofy with a lifetime subscription to her 200 channel supersystem.

Because the newspaper comics formed one long storyline, the tale was framed as a [[ShowWithinAShow movie Mickey and his friends were actors in]].
