!!Yolanda Rat
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yolanda.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Karen Prell (1984-1985), Camille Bonora (1988), Alice Dinnean (2010), Julianne Buescher (1994, 2015-present)
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppetsTakeManhattan'' (1984)

Rizzo's on-again-off-again girlfriend, introduced as one of the rat crowd in ''The Muppets Take Manhattan'' and appearing sporadically in Muppet productions ever since.
----
* AscendedExtra: In ''The Muppets Take Manhattan'', she was TheChick of Rizzo's group of rats and though she's definitely the non-Rizzo rat to make the most appearances in productions afterwards, she didn't appear very often and usually only for cameos. In [[Series/TheMuppets2015 the 2015 show]], she became a regular character as Kermit's secretary.
* DeadpanSnarker: She can more than keep up with Rizzo.
* HiddenDepths: Apparently, she's studying to become an ultrasound technician (she has a B average).
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Extremely sarcastic, sometimes all too willing to step on other people's toes and not always the most moral of rats -- but not a bad person.
* SassySecretary: In [[Series/TheMuppets2015 the 2015 show]]. With her trademark Brooklyn accent, it was probably inevitable.
* VoiceChangeling: She has an uncanny knack for imitating voices.
* YouDirtyRat: Like Rizzo, she mostly subverts it, but still has some of the trademark characteristics, enough that it didn't come across as too out of character when she played one of the swindlers in the Muppet version of ''Literature/TheEmperorsNewClothes''.

!!Bean Bunny
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beanbunny_portrait.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Steve Whitmire
->'''Voiced by:''' Dave Coulier (''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies1984'')
->'''Debut:''' ''The Tale of the Bunny Picnic'' (1986)

Created for a one-off [=HBO=] special, Bean Bunny went on to become a recurring character in ''The Jim Henson Hour'' and late-period ''Muppet Babies'', and had a major role in ''Muppet*Vision 3D''. He's childlike and cute, he knows it...and he uses it to curry sympathy when his attempts to help the show go awry.
-->'''Kermit:''' We hired him to act cute, so the rest of us don't have to.

* ChewToy: In most Muppet productions, when he appears, it's to get clobbered or otherwise go through some sort of physical abuse. Usually this is played for laughs, but in ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'', one scene turns him into a deeply tragic character, when after having gone through his usual comical clobberings (delivered by Scrooge), he is [[MoodWhiplash revealed to be homeless and shivering in the cold winter night]].
* DemotedToExtra: After the early 1990s.
%%* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal
%%* KidAppealCharacter: A parody.
* LoveToHate: [[invoked]] Despite not being a villain per say, this was The Jim Henson Company's purpose for him. He's so cute, he's annoying.
* MrImagination: In ''The Tale of the Bunny Picnic''.
%%* PingPongNaivete
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Scooter even comments that "Cute is his middle name" in ''The Muppets at Walt Disney World''. ("Actually, it's Norman," Bean replies.)

!!Clifford
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clifford.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Kevin Clash
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/TheJimHensonHour'' (1989)

Part of the [=MuppetTelevision=] crew at his debut, Clifford went on to be the host/straight man of ''Muppets Tonight'' in 1996.
----
* AscendedExtra: He actually started off as this, as a new member of the Electric Mayhem in some later specials (including ''The Muppets at Walt Disney World'') and then got promoted to a main character for ''Series/MuppetsTonight''. Now he's come full-circle...
%%* [[AmbiguouslyBrown Ambiguously Purple]]
* CoolShades: He couldn't wear them on ''Series/MuppetsTonight'', much to Kevin Clash's chagrin.
* DeadpanSnarker: It's very rare, but he is known for having a deadpan sense of humor on occasion.
* DemotedToExtra: He was the last Muppet designed by Jim Henson and it seems they had something planned for this guy. But after ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' went off the air and Kevin Clash left the picture...
%%* DreadlockRasta
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He looks a lot like Bob Marley.
* NotSoStoic: The formerly cool-as-a-glacier Clifford tended to lose his composure under the stress of being a TV host.
* TheGhost: Clifford's girlfriend, whom he's constantly talking to over the phone.
* PutOnABus: According to Kermit on Twitter, Clifford went back to playing the bass, which is why he is not making any appearances.
%%* TheUtterlyAndCompletelyDefinitiveGuideToCool: So he says.

!!Digit
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/digit_05.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Dave Goelz
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/TheJimHensonHour''
----
%%* AIIsACrapshoot
* EarlyBirdCameo: Was in Jim Henson's original pilot of ''The Jim Henson Hour'', titled ''Inner Tube TV''. Digit was the keyboard player for the all-new band and had a more-robotic voice. Digit is also the only Muppet from said pilot to remain on board when the show was changed to ''The Jim Henson Hour''.
* RobotBuddy: He appears to be robotic, and serves as something of Kermit's sidekick during [=MuppetTelevision=].
* UnexpectedCharacter: After two decades of absence, he randomly showed up again in the video game ''Muppets Party Cruise''.

!!Waldo C. Graphic
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/af5cd_waldo.png]]
->'''Performed by:''' Steve Whitmire
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/TheJimHensonHour''
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* FadSuper: ''Ride/MuppetVision3D'' was his finest hour (and it still plays at Disney theme parks to this day), but his VR manipulation and outdated CGI gave Waldo a short shelf life indeed. You'd think with 3-D movies being all the rage in the late 2000s-early 2010s, he would have made a return, but alas...
%%* FunPersonified
* MeaningfulName: He's a computer ''graphic'' controlled by a puppeteer wearing ''waldos''.
* MixAndMatchCritters: He looks like a cross between a butterfly and a seal.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: In contrast to the other Muppets, which are all traditional puppets, Waldo is an uniquely CGI puppet controlled digitially by the muppeteer.
* {{Shapeshifter}}: He can change his appearance into various forms.

!!Chip
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chip_donut.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Gord Robertson (1989), Dave Goelz (2015)
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/TheJimHensonHour''

A nerdy human Muppet who was initially rather unknown, but made a comeback as an IT guy on ''Up Late With Miss Piggy''.
----
* AscendedExtra: Managed to go from being an obscure Muppet on a short-running show to being a recurring character in [[Series/TheMuppets2015 the 2015 show]].
* AuthorAvatar: He's a caricature of Bill Prady. The fact that Prady was a producer for the 2015 show is the reason he managed to come back.
* CatchPhrase: "I'm Chip. I'm the IT guy."
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: In the 2015 show, he's treated as this due to his obscurity and weirdness, having been pranked at least once via email. He doesn't mind.
* NerdGlasses: He wears a pair of them.
* PlayfulHacker: He often invades the Internet accounts of other cast members; not for bad intentions, but because he doesn't have a sense of privacy.
* RecurringExtra: When he's not contributing to the plot in the 2015 show, he tends to be seen working in the background.
* RememberTheNewGuy: An odd case; he's not actually a new Muppet, but his obscurity means he's treated as one in the 2015 show. He has to introduce himself to every other cast member because he's just that unknown.
* SelfDeprecation: Given how he's portrayed in the 2015 show, it's clear that he's meant to be this for Bill Prady.
* UnexpectedCharacter: Nobody expected him to return for ''The Muppets''. Not even ''himself''.

!!The Elvises
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3_elvises.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Dave Goelz, Steve Whitmire, Bill Barretta, Brian Henson, Jerry Nelson, others
->'''Debut:''' ''Muppet Classic Theatre''
* ElvisImpersonator: The Elvises have had many performers over the years, all of whom count as these. Part of the fun is hearing the subtle differences between the different performers' imitations.
* ElvisLives: And there are three of him! [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight Nobody finds this odd.]]
* ElvishPresley: In their debut, they were the stars of a rather unconventional telling of ''The Elves and the Shoemaker'', thanks to Rizzo initially mishearing the title.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: They don't really interact with the main cast much. They appear, rock out, and leave.

!!Pepe the '''King''' Prawn
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pepe_the_king_prawn_7.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Bill Barretta
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''

A Spanish prawn with an odd speech pattern. He often attempts to be a womanizer.
----
* AccidentalMisnaming: He's terrible at getting people's names right, even when he's looking at a card with their name on it.
* AmbiguousGender: Usually seen flirting with ladies, Muppet or human, but he also admits he finds Josh Groban attractive.
-->“What? He’s a handsome man, and gender is fluid!”'
** There's a GeniusBonus here: For prawns, and a few species of shrimp, gender ''is'' fluid: they can be born male and become female later in life.
* AscendedExtra: Became an ascended extra starting with ''Muppets From Space'', but came full circle when he was DemotedToExtra for the 2011 movie. He got re-promoted for [[Series/TheMuppets2015 the 2015 show]].
* BerserkButton: Calling him a shrimp rather than a prawn.
* BigGuyLittleGuy: The little guy to Seymour's big guy.
* BreakoutCharacter: One of the very few post-1990 Muppet characters to become a full-fledged member of the core cast.
%%* TheCasanova
%%* CasanovaWannabe
* {{Catchphrase}}: UN-believable!
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: In ''Muppets Now!'', as the host of "Pepe's Unbelievable Game Show". What rules the game has are thrown out in favor of Pepe just doing whatever, such as staring contests judged by penguins, or the winner being decided by asking the contestants who they think is the winner.
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Film/TheMuppets2011''. [[WolverinePublicity He was featured pretty prominently in some of the trailers]], but it turns out most of that footage came from the one scene he was in that remained in the final cut.
%% * GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Due to overwhelming and persistent misuse, GCPTR is on-page examples only until 01 June 2021. If you are reading this in the future, please check the trope page to make sure your example fits the current definition.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: He wears a jacket and ballcap but no pants.
* InformedSpecies: Let's be honest, he doesn't look anything like a king prawn. Or a crustacean at all. Maybe some sort of furry oversized bug.
* JustAStupidAccent: Why is he Spanish? No special reason. ([[http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Pepe_the_King_Prawn The actual reason is Bill Barretta based the voice on his wife's aunt]].)
* InsistentTerminology: He is a ''King Prawn'', okay? Not a ''Shrimp''.
* LatinLover: Guy nearly managed to get Miss Piggy during ''The Muppets'', and during ''Now'' he's briefly seen going out with Linda Cardellini.
%%* LovableSexManiac
* {{Malaproper}}: Sometimes mispronounces certain words; for example, he occasionally calls Kermit "Kermin," and the Muppets, the "Muppins."
%%* TheNicknamer
* {{Pluralses}}: He often speaks of his fondness for "womens".
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Pulls rank on the beleaguered Scooter when he tries getting everyone to follow the game show's rules because it's his show.
* ThoseTwoGuys:
** He and Seymour the Elephant were this on ''Series/MuppetsTonight''. (What happened to Seymour the Elephant? Well, he failed to have a funny accent...)
** He and Rizzo become this in some of the more modern productions like ''Letters to Santa''.
* VerbalTic, okay?
* WolverinePublicity: A few instances, but the worst was when Disney had him host the special features of the [=DVDs=] of four Muppet movies produced ''before'' his creation.

!!Bobo the Bear
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bobo_bear.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Bill Barretta
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
----
* AscendedExtra: The ''only'' ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' Muppet to appear for more than one scene or crowd shot in the 2011 film.
%%* BearyFunny
* BreakoutCharacter: One of the very few post-1990 Muppet characters to become a full-fledged member of the core cast.
%%* DeadpanSnarker: Deadpan ''everything''.
* DadTheVeteran: In the 2015 series he has a daughter in the girl scouts and a past spent fixing helicopters for "The Service". Such skills are [[spoiler:not]] transferable to the fixing of elevators.
* DependingOnTheWriter: His intelligence has varied from project to project. When he first appeared in ''Series/MuppetsTonight'', he was pretty dim-witted. In the movies, he was generally a MinionWithAnFInEvil. By ''Series/TheMuppets2015'', he was one of the smarter characters.
%%* TheDitz
* GentleGiant: Like Fozzie, he's more of a teddy bear than a menacing one.
%%* MinionWithAnFInEvil: In two separate movies now.
%%* SmallNameBigEgo
* ThoseTwoGuys: In ''The Muppets'' and ''Most Wanted'', he spends most of his screentime with Uncle Deadly.

!!Johnny Fiama
[[quoteright:240:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fiama.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Bill Barretta
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
%%* CasanovaWannabe
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome / DemotedToExtra: His appearances became much more limited after 2005, with the ''Bohemian Rhapsody'' video from 2009 being his final appearance to date. And with his performer Bill Barretta confirming in 2015 that his puppet had deteriorated (along with Sal Minella's), it's even more unlikely that he'll be seen again anytime soon.
** TheBusCameBack: Johnny and Sal appeared in the recent trailer for ''Muppets Haunted Mansion'' as ghosts, confirming their comeback in the special.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Sal Minella.
%%* LoungeLizard
* MeaningfulName: Fiama is an anagram of Mafia, a reference to the rumor that Frank Sinatra achieved fame through his underworld connections.
* MommasBoy: Johnny Fiama loves his mama.
* {{UST}}: With [[spoiler:Miss Piggy]], of all people.

!!Sal Minella
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/salminella.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Brian Henson
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* DemotedToExtra: Just like with Johnny Fiama, his appearances became much more limited after 2005, mostly because his performer Brian Henson stopped being a full-time performer. The ''Bohemian Rhapsody'' video from 2009 is his final appearance to date. And it's all the more unlikely we'll be seeing him again after confirmation from Bill Barretta (Johnny Fiama's performer) in 2015 that his puppet had deteriorated (along with Johnny's). However, six years after that, Sal and Johnny Fiama showed up as ghosts in the Disney+ special ''Muppets Haunted Mansion'', with Brian Henson returning to perform Sal.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He makes a (very) brief appearance during the opening number of ''Muppets Treasure Island.''
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Johnny Fiama.
* ThoseTwoGuys: He and Johnny are practically inseparable.

!!Seymour
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seymour_elephant.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Brian Henson
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Hey everybody, remember when Pepe had an elephant sidekick?
* DoggedNiceGuy: Compared to Pepe, it was no question who the more interesting one was.
%%* LesserStar

!!Dr. Phil Van Neuter
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/228fb_vanneuter.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Brian Henson
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
----
* TheBusCameBack: Van Neuter returned for the first time in two decades in ''Film/MuppetsHauntedMansion''.
* FreudianExcuse: This guy's been messed up his whole life.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Mulch. Although the "heterosexual" part gets a little murky when you see that Phil's wife, Composta Heap, is essentially Mulch in drag...
** Actually, it was stated that the only reason he hired Mulch to begin with was because Composta is Mulch's sister, instead making his employment an act of Nepotism.
%%* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
%%* MadDoctor
%%* SissyVillain

!!Mulch
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/509_6.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Jerry Nelson (1980), Kevin Clash (1996-1997)
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* EarlyBirdCameo: He originally appeared on ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' during its fifth season and as a FrankensteinsMonster in the ''Nephew of Frankenstein'' sketch from ''The Muppets Go to the Movies''.
* TheIgor: He's a grotesque brute who serves as Dr. Phil Van Neuter's assistant.
* TheUnintelligible: Became this on ''Series/MuppetsTonight''. With the exception of the end credits' blooper reels, he does not say anything other than inarticulate growls.

!!Big Mean Carl
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mt_bigmeancarl.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Bill Barretta
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Sometimes, he wears nothing at all, but at other times, he just wears a necktie or a set of bunny ears.
* BigEater: He continues the proud tradition of Muppet monsters with voracious appetites.
* TheBigGuy: He's one of the bigger Muppets. It says so in his name.
* BreakoutCharacter: Like Pepe the King Prawn and Bobo the Bear, he is one of the very few post-1990 Muppets who is still a prominent recurring character in Muppet productions, albeit not as prominently as Pepe or Bobo.
* {{Catchphrase}}: Carl tends to end most of his appearances by shouting, "THANK YOU!"
* ComedicSociopathy: The main drive of his character is that he eats living things without remorse.
* DreadfulMusician: In one of his acts, he tries to play the violin and sounds awful.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Like his coworkers, he invites his mother to work in the last episode of ''Muppets Tonight''.
* ExtremeOmnivore: As all good Muppet monsters are, there is very little he won't devour.
* FlatCharacter: When he appears, it is usually just to eat other characters and be mean.
* JerkAss: They don't call him Big Mean Carl for nothing.
* NoIndoorVoice: He tends to shout every line. It makes it hard to tell when he's not angry, especially when he's repeating a message.
-->'''Big Mean Carl:''' I JUST TAKE MESSAGES. I DON'T JUDGE TONE!
* StrongFamilyResemblance: His mother Carla looks and sounds like Carl in drag. So does his sister, also named Carla.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: On ''Muppets Tonight'', he seems to have a different act every time he appears on stage, with his stage name changing a bit for each act ("Carl the Big Mean _____"). Averted during all the ''Swift Wits'' segments, where he's always in his Big Mean Bunny persona.

!!Walter
[[quoteright:220:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/walter_muppet.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Peter Linz
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppets2011''
----
* AscendedFanboy: The lucky guy gets to meet his idols, help them come back to relevance and even gets a part in their telethon and becomes a member of the gang!
* AudienceSurrogate: As Tough Pigs put it, "(...)Walter is us. I related with his character so much, I practically expected him to say that he runs his own website for Muppet Fans Who Grew Up."
* AuthorAppeal: Creator/JasonSegel, who co-wrote the 2011 ''Muppets'' film (and also portrays Gary) grew up watching the original Muppet show and has a great affection for the characters, and Walter’s own love of the Muppets was heavily influenced by this.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He was completely absent from [[Series/TheMuppets2015 the 2015 show]] aside from the 10-minute presentation pilot, which is very notable considering that far less important Muppets made appearances in it and his puppeteer worked on the show. He ultimately returned in 2017.
* {{Fanboy}}: Of the Muppets. Because he ''is one'' himself, not that he knew that.
* {{Keet}}: He's very excitable and energetic, especially when fanboying.
* HiddenDepths: He can whistle, but he didn't think of it as a talent until he was put on the spot and had to do something to fill time.
** Gary and Walter are given the task of putting costumes together, and the former briefly mentions that he and Walter are both "really good sewers".
* NiceGuy: Walter is very kind and friendly to others.
* ObliviousAdoption: {{Averted}}. The film never even addresses how human Gary and Muppet Walter are brothers.
** According to Jason Segel, they just decided the audience will [[MST3KMantra go with it]], like how in ''Film/TheGreatMuppetCaper'', people just went with the idea of Fozzie and Kermit being identical twin brothers.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Walter never ages while growing up, unlike his human brother Gary. He’s 30 years old during the events of the 2011 film, [[AllThereInTheScript according to the writers]], but doesn’t look any different from when he was a child.
* OutOfFocus: Played with in ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'', where he's still a main character, but the classic Muppets get more focus than in ''Film/TheMuppets2011''.
* PutOnABus: Despite Peter Linz being credited for every episode, and Walter appearing in the original pilot (with no lines), Walter does not make a single appearance in the 2015 TV series.
** [[spoiler:He's back in the Muppets Now, as the format works better for his excitable nature.]]
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: Walter is [[OriginalGeneration a brand-new Muppet created for the film]] and is described as a plain brown Whatnot. [[{{Deconstruction}} He's not exactly a fan of how generic he is]].
* StageFright: So bad he managed to [[ImpactSilhouette make a Walter-shaped hole in a brick wall]] when running away.
* VictorianNovelDisease: Prone to fainting when he gets overexcited or overstimulated, despite being able to withstand an electric fence shocking him. He faints seeing Kermit in the flesh and after waking up, he's told he was brought into Kermit's ''house'', immediately fainting again (albeit much more briefly).

!!80's Robot
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/80srobot_white.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Matt Vogel
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppets2011''
----
* ArtificialIntelligence: Well, he ''is'' a robot, so this is a given.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Unlike Walter, who was only absent temporarily after ''Muppets Most Wanted'', 80's Robot's absence is another story as 80's Robot has yet to make appearances outside of ''Muppets Most Wanted''.
* ComputerVoice: He speaks in a stereotypically monotonous robotic voice.
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Muppets Most Wanted'', where he doesn't have any lines at all.
* DiscoDan: Apparently never got the input code that TAB and New Coke are out of vogue.
%%* DoAnythingRobot
* TheEighties: He looks as though he was constructed sometime in that decade, which may explain his name.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: He's one of the rare Muppets not to have any mouth where the puppeteer's hand can operate from. He's all remote-controlled by someone off-screen. If he were to appear in any other movie, audiences wouldn't think of him as a Muppet at all.
%%* RoboSpeak
* RobotMaid: Introduced as a butler for Kermit when he is found living in his mansion. Assumed to act as someone Kermit can talk to without being completely lonely... [[RoboSpeak to an extent]].
* TotallyRadical: Speaks in 80s slang. Grody to the max!

!!The Moopets
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/themoopets.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Tyler Bunch (Foozie), Matt Vogel (Janoose), Dave Goelz (Kermoot), David Rudman (Miss Poogy), Matt Vogel (Roowlf), and Music/DaveGrohl (Animool)
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppets2011''

A thug styled Muppets tribute band from Reno Nevada. They were originally headlined by the real Fozzie Bear, but aside from him group shares very few similarities with who they are based on.
----
* AscendedExtra: Miss Poogy would end up joining the actual Muppets towards the end of the movie. Originally she was a temporary replacement for Miss Piggy, but she continued to show up in Muppets shows and movies afterwards, though mostly in minor roles.
* DarkerAndEdgier: They're all dark and gritty thugs styled after the Muppets.
* {{Jerkass}}: All of them, but Miss Poogy the most, lacking her counterpart's better qualities.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: All of them are Muppet styled puppets except for Animool who is just David Grohl in a cheap Animal costume.
* ThemeNaming: The group and the individual members are named after Muppets characters with two Os replacing a vowel.

!!Constantine
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/constantine.png]]
->'''Performed by:''' Matt Vogel
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'' (2014)

The world's most dangerous frog. He just so happens to look exactly like Kermit the Frog, save for a mole on his face.
----
* BigBad: He is the main villain in ''Muppets Most Wanted''.
* CardCarryingVillain: He relishes in his criminal status, and wants to steal the famous Crown Jewels of England to ensure that his name will go down in history as "Greatest Thief of All Time".
* FauxAffablyEvil: Constantine is only polite because he needs to be to keep the Muppets on his side.
* GlassCannon: He can take out human guards quickly and effortlessly as long as he has surprise and momentum on his side, but he's still just a frog. Piggy takes him out in seconds as soon as she gets a hold of him.
* HatesBeingTouched: He really doesn't like it, and barely puts up with it because it's crucial to his plans.
* {{Jerkass}}: How do the other gulag prisoners know that Kermit isn't him? Constantine apparently ''never'' says thank you for anything.
* KickTheDog: While his treatment of Dominic is kind of funny, it's also rather cruel. There's also framing Kermit for his escape, and [[spoiler:arranging a wedding with Miss Piggy which he would almost certainly have broken off]].
** TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:Dominic tries to betray him. Key word being tries. Piggy has more luck, effortlessly slapping him around a helicopter.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Even with his comedic moments, he is still one of the franchise's most dangerous and ruthless villains, next to [[Film/TheMuppetMovie Doc Hopper]].
* LaughablyEvil: He's just as humorous as any regular Muppet. But he's also probably [[BewareTheSillyOnes the most vile and menacing Muppet]] [[VileVillainSaccharineShow ever seen thus far]].
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: "The most dangerous frog in the world" (which, as Piggy points out in the climax, isn't really saying much).
* PaperThinDisguise: Lampshaded when some of the Muppets find out eventually. Kermit is ''not'' pleased. Granted he looks identical enough to Kermit that his low effort disguise is understandably effective.
* TalkingToHimself: Since Matt Vogel took over for Kermit, this was the case during their appearance in the 2017 Pentatonix Christmas special.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: This is one Muppet who is willing to manipulate, incriminate, and even commit mass murder in order to steal priceless jewels simply ForTheEvulz.
* VillainSong: He and Dominic sing the duet "I'm Number One" where Constantine proudly calls them "criminals at large" and sings about how he's superior to Dominic.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Demonstrates extreme stage fright. He quickly overcomes it so it doesn't interfere with his plans.

->'''Debut:''' ''Series/TheMuppets2015'' ("Pig Girls Don't Cry")

Kermit's girlfriend in the 2015 show. They got together shortly after Kermit and Piggy had their big break-up.

* MayDecemberRomance: Downplayed to a degree, but the way Miss Piggy talks about her, she's significantly younger than Kermit.
* RomanticFalseLead: Given that she's in the way of one of TV's most famous couples, this is inevitable, [[spoiler:especially after she and Kermit split in "Swine Song".]]
* SouthernFriedGenius: Born in Georgia, and speaks with a prominent southern accent, she's pretty leveled headed, and at one point tried (but ultimately failed) to talk ''Kermit'' out of making a reckless decision.

An adorable baby penguin that Piggy takes home with her from a trip to Argentina. No relation to [[Music/GloriaEstefan the singer]].
----
* AmbiguousGender: Piggy calls them a "he", while Deadly calls them a "she".
* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins: The 2015 show lacks the traditional Muppet penguins, so they fill this role instead.
* MisplacedWildlife: Gloria is clearly an Emperor Penguin... and from Argentina, there are no Emperor Penguins in Argentina
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Only because Piggy couldn't think of any other Spanish-sounding names.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Looks more like a stuffed animal than the average Muppet.
* OddFriendship: One of the few Muppets that Uncle Deadly can tolerate.

!!The Horrible Goose
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/honeydew_and_goose.png]]

When Beaker demos Dr. Honeydew's new VR headset at the Game Awards something goes horribly wrong, bringing the main character of ''Untitled Goose Game'' into the real world.
----

->'''Performed by:''' Peter Linz
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsNow''

A weasel who serves as the Muppets' legal consultant as well as providing legal disclaimers before shorts. His job typically causes problems for Kermit and Scooter as they try to run the show, as well as for Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker for obvious reasons.
----
* CannotTellAJoke: His attempts at humor are probably even worse than Fozzie's.
* DoNotTryThisAtHome: He provides this warning before every Muppet Labs Field Test short on ''Now''. He also makes sure that the warning isn't just limited to home.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He appeared almost a full year before the release of ''Muppets Now'', both to announce the show, and for the Muppets' Talk Like A Pirate Day video (in which he talks like someone committing digital piracy).
* EvilLawyerJoke: He doesn't hesitate to joke about his species and profession.
* LaughingAtYourOwnJokes: Quite loudly too.
* RattlingOffLegal: His job is to rattle off legalese, but he'll also do it to try and deter any antics that might be dangerous. Sadly, mere legalese is no match for Dr. Honeydew and Beaker.
-->'''Joe:''' Motion for dismissal!\\
'''Large caption:''' REJECTED.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: He embodies this trope, refusing to let Kermit reveal anything about upcoming projects besides their hypothetical existence, and forces Scooter to put the show through a test audience before being allowed to upload anything (said test audience being Statler and Waldorf).
* SignatureLaugh: He has a loud, bellowing laugh which typically follows his poor attempts at telling a joke.

!!Doc Hopper
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dochopper_edited.png]]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/CharlesDurning
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppetMovie'' (1979)

Proprietor of a French-fried frog legs fast food franchise, Doc Hopper sees Kermit the Frog as the ideal spokesman for his product. Kermit refuses to shill for him, but Hopper ''really'' won't take no for an answer...
----
* BigBad: He is the main villain of ''Film/TheMuppetMovie''.
* FatSweatySouthernerInAWhiteSuit: He's fat, wears a white suit, sells fried food, and is evil.
* IgnoredEpiphany: At the climax, Kermit gives a heartwarming speech to try and talk him down. It doesn't work.
* KnightOfCerebus: Easily one of the most vile and despicable characters in the entire franchise.
* VillainExitStageLeft: He runs away after being scared off by a giant Animal.

!!Max
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/max_149.jpg]]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Austin Pendleton
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppetMovie''

Doc Hopper's somewhat nerdy assistant brought Kermit to his boss's attention after seeing the frog not only ride a bicycle, but also perform with Fozzie Bear at El Sleezo's Cafe. He's initially supportive of Hopper's attempts to make Kermit a spokesfrog, but soon enough he's only sticking with the bad guy for the money, and even that motivation only goes so far...
----
* HeelFaceTurn: He never actually joins the good guys, but he warns Kermit and the gang about the frog killer, and is overjoyed when [[spoiler:the giant Animal]] scares Doc Hopper away.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: He's not very good at being an evil henchman.

!! Nicky Holiday
->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/CharlesGrodin
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheGreatMuppetCaper''
The brother of Lady Holiday, and the BigBad of ''The Great Muppet Caper''.
----
* AmazonBrigade: His gang consists of three girls named Carla, Darla, and Marla.
* BaitTheDog: Nicky's only virtue is that his crush on Miss Piggy is sincere and he likes her spirit. Then he frames her for theft so that he won't get caught. Unsurprisingly, Miss Piggy turns him down at the end of the movie before the cops take him away and says that while she accepts his apology, she'd rather be with Kermit.
* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: Nicky serves as this to Doc Hopper from ''Film/TheMuppetMovie''. Doc is a restauranteur who is more associated with Kermit, while Nicky is the brother of Lady Holiday and is more associated with Miss Piggy. Doc wanted Kermit to be the mascot for his french-fried frog legs restaurant, while Nicky wanted to frame Miss Piggy for jewelry theft so he could have her arrested while he stole the baseball diamond. Doc chased Kermit halfway across the country, while Nicky stayed in London the entire time. Doc had a whole army of men working for him, including a MadScientist and an assassin, whereas Nicky only had three right-hand women. Finally, while Doc [[VillainExitStageLeft ran away after being scared off by a giant Animal]], Nicky was defeated by Miss Piggy and ended up arrested.
* CrazyPrepared: Nicky and his supermodel cat burglars have all the highest tech equipment, which is put in contrast to the Muppets having nonsensical items to counter with (like a Whoopee cushion), but even then, they forgot or lost them. In one case, Animal ate one of the items.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Nicky seems like a complete moron... until you learn he's the film's BigBad.
* DatingCatwoman: Nicky tries to pull this off with Miss Piggy, but never succeeds.
* GentlemanThief: Nickey ends up being quite suave and competent under his buffoonish facade.
* LoveTriangle: Nicky has a one-sided one with Miss Piggy, who prefers Kermit.
* NearVillainVictory: Nicky and his gang almost succeed in stealing the Baseball Diamond, while simultaneously about to take Kermit hostage—until Miss Piggy shows up on her motorcycle just in time to stop them.

!![[Literature/AChristmasCarol Ebenezer Scrooge]]

->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/MichaelCaine
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'' (1992)
----
* AdaptationalJerkass: Whereas in the book, Scrooge is merely a passive-aggressive grump about Christmas, here he threatens to fire his writing staff just for asking about the cold and throws a wreath at Bean Bunny for caroling.
* AdaptationalPersonalityChange: That said, in the book, he's amused by his nephew making jokes about him at Christmas. Here, he's actually ''hurt''.
* AntiHero: The same tropes from the original book can fit him here.
* BerserkButton: According to "Scrooge", asking him for a favour tends to make him worse. His reaction to the bookkeepers asking for extra coal bears this one out.
* CatchPhrase: "Bah Humbug!" of course.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: Rizzo thinks it gets colder when Scrooge walks past.
* HeelFaceTurn: One of the more famous fictional examples, caused by visits from three spirits. It's already started kicking in with the second, but cemented by the third.
* HiddenDepths: Double subverted. The people of London initially speculate he must have some, only to decide he doesn't when he passes by without a first or second glance, but as the film goes on it turns out he ''does''. They're just buried really deep.
* LargeAndInCharge: Being a human, he towers over most of the Muppets around him, helping to emphasise his intimidating stature. It also helps sell how scary the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come is, since at eight feet, it's taller than ''him''.
* MovingTheGoalposts: What doomed his relationship with Belle. He always promised they'd get married the next year, but business was never ''quite'' good enough for Scrooge's liking, even though Belle pointed out he was well off enough.
* SuddenlyShouting: "How would the bookkeepers like to be suddenly '''''UNEMPLOYED?!'''''"
* TookALevelInCheerfulness: Starts off a mean, bad-tempered man who is considered by all of London to be the worst person in the world. By the time the second spirit visits, he's noticeably brightened, even cracking jokes. After the third, he's singing.
* TookALevelInKindness: After his visit from the final spirit is enough to knock some sense into Scrooge and get him to become a better person.
* TheVillainSucksSong: "Scrooge", a song where the entirety of London sings about how unpleasant he is.
-->"''There goes Mr. Humbug, there goes Mr. Grim.''\\
''If there was a prize for being mean, the winner would be him.''"

* CoolTeacher: Her students even simultaneously admit they'll miss her during their two-week Spring Break.
* DeusExMachina: [[spoiler:When the Muppet Theater loses power during the telethon, she abruptly appears to repair the fuse box.]]
** ChekhovsGunman: Her knowing how to fix the fuse box was foreshadowed early on, when she's teaching kids how to repair cars. It's her sudden appearance when she was in another state that makes it DeusExMachina.

->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/ChrisCooper
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppets2011''

The prospect of oil under the site of the old ''Muppet Show'' theater prompts this billionaire to buy the building under the guise of turning it into a museum. When the good guys learn of his scheme to raze it, their quest to raise enough money to buy it back begins. He's got all the trappings of a classic kiddie-movie villain...except the EvilLaugh.
----
* AxCrazy: Not in the sense that he wants to kill anyone, but near the end of the movie he becomes hellbent on destroying everything in his path to ruin the Muppets' career.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:Technically, since the Muppets ''do'' fail to meet their goal of raising ten million dollars. In the end, it doesn't matter, due to his bowling ball-induced HeelFaceTurn.]]
* BigBad: Of ''Film/TheMuppets2011''.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He's an evil oil baron.
* FreudianExcuse: A deleted scene depicts a young Richman discovering his inability to laugh while watching the Muppets, causing his friends to mock him. He swore revenge on the Muppets for bringing about his humiliation.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Thanks to Gonzo's bowling ball.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He initially starts out as a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk up until his long overdue LaserGuidedKarma courtesy of Gonzo over the end credits.

%%* LargeHam
* MeaningfulName: He's a rich man named Tex ''Richman''.
* PissTakeRap: His VillainSong.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: [[spoiler:His change of heart has nothing to do with brain damage.]]
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: When fencing, he throws his foil at his expensive flat-screen TV and destroys it once he hears about the Muppet Telethon on the news.
* UnsoundEffect: "Maniacal laugh, maniacal laugh!" He literally can't laugh.

!!Dominic Badguy

->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/RickyGervais
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted''
Constantine's right-hand man, Dominic gets tangled up with the Muppets even before his boss does, suggesting that they go on a world tour and kicking off the movie's plot.
----
* AffablyEvil: He's surprisingly polite, all things considered.
* BeardOfEvil: Ricky Gervais keeps his beard for the role.
* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:His efforts to overthrow Constantine end terribly, and he's ultimately laughed into prison.]]
* ButtMonkey: He's treated like this in the song "I'm Number One", with a door swinging into his face being one such example of him being a victim of this trope.
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:Is on the receiving end of one of these, courtesy of Constantine.]]
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:He attempts to betray Constantine because he treats him horribly. [[CurbStompBattle It doesn't work.]]]]
* TheDragon: To Constantine.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: He doesn't like his boss, however.
* EvilBrit: For a given measure of "evil", given how he's rather affable.
* HyperCompetentSidekick: While Constantine is plenty competent for the most part, he does the lion's share of his and Constantine's activities, from heists to keeping up the charade that Constantine is Kermit. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, betrayal is one of the few areas he's lacking in.]]
* ILied: This realization is first Lampshaded by Walter when he informs Fozzie that Dominic Badguy lied and he's responsible for the ticket sales numbers.
* InsistentTerminology: Insists his last name is pronounced "Bahd-gee" when introducing himself to the Muppets and claims [[BlatantLies it means "good man."]]
* MeaningfulName: They don't call him Badguy for nothing.
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: [[spoiler:His failed betrayal is partly out of greed, but mainly because Constantine treated him like rubbish]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Downplayed, but someone called "Dominic Badguy" probably isn't the most heroic character. He manages to persuade the Muppets that it's pronounced "bahd-gee".
* ObviouslyEvil: Oh come on. Just look at his name!
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:His betrayal may have ended disastrously, but it did slow Constantine down]].
* TheBadGuyWins: Or so he thought; Constantine set the record straight for Dominic after stating he doesn't tolerate his own boss attempting to betray him before ejecting him from the helicopter.
* TheStarscream: As explained in his VillainSong duet with Constantine [[spoiler:and later demonstrated during Dominic's attempted coup, key word being "attempted"]].
* VillainSong: He and Constantine sing the duet "I'm Number One" where Constantine proudly calls them "criminals at large" and sings about how he's superior to Dominic.

A feisty Russian prison guard who loves Broadway and has a crush on Kermit.
----
* DreadfulMusician: She's... enthusiastic, at least, but her singing of "I Need This Job" alarms Kermit. Whether she actually is or isn't, we don't get to see, because just as she gets to her big solo number... [[spoiler:the movie ends.]]
* GenreSavvy: Works out most of Kermit's escape plans owing to her watching many prison films on Netflix. [[spoiler:Breaking out with the cover of a show wasn't something she saw coming]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's a little rude and manipulative, but at the end of the film, [[spoiler:she lets Kermit go after realizing that she'd take him away from his family if she took him back to prison]].
* StalkerWithACrush: It seemed Nadya quickly figured out Kermit wasn't the criminal that belonged in her gulag. But her StalkerShrine to Kermit in her locker implies she had her own reasons for keeping him in her gulag.

* FreudianExcuse: He has a strained relationship with his distant, and suggested to be emotionally cold, father. Yolanda, Rizzo and Pepe manage to open communications between them, helping him become a nicer person.
* ManipulativeBastard: Is not above using underhanded tactics to get his way, from having guest stars pulled at the last minute to bribing the writers with new suits.
* PretentiousPronunciation: He insists his name is spelled "Pizza" for branding purposes, even though, as the Muppets point out, pizza in and of itself is not technically a brand.

->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppetsTakeManhattan'' (1984)

Rizzo's on-again-off-again girlfriend, introduced as one of the rat crowd in ''The Muppets Take Manhattan'' and appearing sporadically in Muppet productions ever since.
----
* AscendedExtra: In ''The Muppets Take Manhattan'', she was TheChick of Rizzo's group of rats and though she's definitely the non-Rizzo rat to make the most appearances in productions afterwards, she didn't appear very often and usually only for cameos. In [[Series/TheMuppets2015 the 2015 show]], she became a regular character as Kermit's secretary.
* DeadpanSnarker: She can more than keep up with Rizzo.
* HiddenDepths: Apparently, she's studying to become an ultrasound technician (she has a B average).
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Extremely sarcastic, sometimes all too willing to step on other people's toes and not always the most moral of rats -- but not a bad person.
* SassySecretary: In [[Series/TheMuppets2015 the 2015 show]]. With her trademark Brooklyn accent, it was probably inevitable.
* VoiceChangeling: She has an uncanny knack for imitating voices.
* YouDirtyRat: Like Rizzo, she mostly subverts it, but still has some of the trademark characteristics, enough that it didn't come across as too out of character when she played one of the swindlers in the Muppet version of ''Literature/TheEmperorsNewClothes''.

Created for a one-off [=HBO=] special, Bean Bunny went on to become a recurring character in ''The Jim Henson Hour'' and late-period ''Muppet Babies'', and had a major role in ''Muppet*Vision 3D''. He's childlike and cute, he knows it...and he uses it to curry sympathy when his attempts to help the show go awry.
-->'''Kermit:''' We hired him to act cute, so the rest of us don't have to.

* ChewToy: In most Muppet productions, when he appears, it's to get clobbered or otherwise go through some sort of physical abuse. Usually this is played for laughs, but in ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'', one scene turns him into a deeply tragic character, when after having gone through his usual comical clobberings (delivered by Scrooge), he is [[MoodWhiplash revealed to be homeless and shivering in the cold winter night]].

->'''Debut:''' ''Series/TheJimHensonHour''
----
%%* AIIsACrapshoot
* EarlyBirdCameo: Was in Jim Henson's original pilot of ''The Jim Henson Hour'', titled ''Inner Tube TV''. Digit was the keyboard player for the all-new band and had a more-robotic voice. Digit is also the only Muppet from said pilot to remain on board when the show was changed to ''The Jim Henson Hour''.
* RobotBuddy: He appears to be robotic, and serves as something of Kermit's sidekick during [=MuppetTelevision=].
* UnexpectedCharacter: After two decades of absence, he randomly showed up again in the video game ''Muppets Party Cruise''.

!!Waldo C. Graphic
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/af5cd_waldo.png]]
->'''Performed by:''' Steve Whitmire
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/TheJimHensonHour''
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* FadSuper: ''Ride/MuppetVision3D'' was his finest hour (and it still plays at Disney theme parks to this day), but his VR manipulation and outdated CGI gave Waldo a short shelf life indeed. You'd think with 3-D movies being all the rage in the late 2000s-early 2010s, he would have made a return, but alas...
%%* FunPersonified
* MeaningfulName: He's a computer ''graphic'' controlled by a puppeteer wearing ''waldos''.
* MixAndMatchCritters: He looks like a cross between a butterfly and a seal.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: In contrast to the other Muppets, which are all traditional puppets, Waldo is an uniquely CGI puppet controlled digitially by the muppeteer.
* {{Shapeshifter}}: He can change his appearance into various forms.

!!Chip
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chip_donut.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Gord Robertson (1989), Dave Goelz (2015)
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/TheJimHensonHour''

A nerdy human Muppet who was initially rather unknown, but made a comeback as an IT guy on ''Up Late With Miss Piggy''.
----
* AscendedExtra: Managed to go from being an obscure Muppet on a short-running show to being a recurring character in [[Series/TheMuppets2015 the 2015 show]].
* AuthorAvatar: He's a caricature of Bill Prady. The fact that Prady was a producer for the 2015 show is the reason he managed to come back.
* CatchPhrase: "I'm Chip. I'm the IT guy."
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: In the 2015 show, he's treated as this due to his obscurity and weirdness, having been pranked at least once via email. He doesn't mind.
* NerdGlasses: He wears a pair of them.
* PlayfulHacker: He often invades the Internet accounts of other cast members; not for bad intentions, but because he doesn't have a sense of privacy.
* RecurringExtra: When he's not contributing to the plot in the 2015 show, he tends to be seen working in the background.
* RememberTheNewGuy: An odd case; he's not actually a new Muppet, but his obscurity means he's treated as one in the 2015 show. He has to introduce himself to every other cast member because he's just that unknown.
* SelfDeprecation: Given how he's portrayed in the 2015 show, it's clear that he's meant to be this for Bill Prady.
* UnexpectedCharacter: Nobody expected him to return for ''The Muppets''. Not even ''himself''.

!!The Elvises
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3_elvises.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Dave Goelz, Steve Whitmire, Bill Barretta, Brian Henson, Jerry Nelson, others
->'''Debut:''' ''Muppet Classic Theatre''
* ElvisImpersonator: The Elvises have had many performers over the years, all of whom count as these. Part of the fun is hearing the subtle differences between the different performers' imitations.
* ElvisLives: And there are three of him! [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight Nobody finds this odd.]]
* ElvishPresley: In their debut, they were the stars of a rather unconventional telling of ''The Elves and the Shoemaker'', thanks to Rizzo initially mishearing the title.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: They don't really interact with the main cast much. They appear, rock out, and leave.

!!Pepe the '''King''' Prawn
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pepe_the_king_prawn_7.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Bill Barretta
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''

A Spanish prawn with an odd speech pattern. He often attempts to be a womanizer.
----
* AccidentalMisnaming: He's terrible at getting people's names right, even when he's looking at a card with their name on it.
* AmbiguousGender: Usually seen flirting with ladies, Muppet or human, but he also admits he finds Josh Groban attractive.
-->“What? He’s a handsome man, and gender is fluid!”'
** There's a GeniusBonus here: For prawns, and a few species of shrimp, gender ''is'' fluid: they can be born male and become female later in life.
* AscendedExtra: Became an ascended extra starting with ''Muppets From Space'', but came full circle when he was DemotedToExtra for the 2011 movie. He got re-promoted for [[Series/TheMuppets2015 the 2015 show]].
* BerserkButton: Calling him a shrimp rather than a prawn.
* BigGuyLittleGuy: The little guy to Seymour's big guy.
* BreakoutCharacter: One of the very few post-1990 Muppet characters to become a full-fledged member of the core cast.
%%* TheCasanova
%%* CasanovaWannabe
* {{Catchphrase}}: UN-believable!
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: In ''Muppets Now!'', as the host of "Pepe's Unbelievable Game Show". What rules the game has are thrown out in favor of Pepe just doing whatever, such as staring contests judged by penguins, or the winner being decided by asking the contestants who they think is the winner.
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Film/TheMuppets2011''. [[WolverinePublicity He was featured pretty prominently in some of the trailers]], but it turns out most of that footage came from the one scene he was in that remained in the final cut.
%% * GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Due to overwhelming and persistent misuse, GCPTR is on-page examples only until 01 June 2021. If you are reading this in the future, please check the trope page to make sure your example fits the current definition.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: He wears a jacket and ballcap but no pants.
* InformedSpecies: Let's be honest, he doesn't look anything like a king prawn. Or a crustacean at all. Maybe some sort of furry oversized bug.
* JustAStupidAccent: Why is he Spanish? No special reason. ([[http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Pepe_the_King_Prawn The actual reason is Bill Barretta based the voice on his wife's aunt]].)
* InsistentTerminology: He is a ''King Prawn'', okay? Not a ''Shrimp''.
* LatinLover: Guy nearly managed to get Miss Piggy during ''The Muppets'', and during ''Now'' he's briefly seen going out with Linda Cardellini.
%%* LovableSexManiac
* {{Malaproper}}: Sometimes mispronounces certain words; for example, he occasionally calls Kermit "Kermin," and the Muppets, the "Muppins."
%%* TheNicknamer
* {{Pluralses}}: He often speaks of his fondness for "womens".
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Pulls rank on the beleaguered Scooter when he tries getting everyone to follow the game show's rules because it's his show.
* ThoseTwoGuys:
** He and Seymour the Elephant were this on ''Series/MuppetsTonight''. (What happened to Seymour the Elephant? Well, he failed to have a funny accent...)
** He and Rizzo become this in some of the more modern productions like ''Letters to Santa''.
* VerbalTic, okay?
* WolverinePublicity: A few instances, but the worst was when Disney had him host the special features of the [=DVDs=] of four Muppet movies produced ''before'' his creation.

!!Bobo the Bear
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bobo_bear.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Bill Barretta
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
----
* AscendedExtra: The ''only'' ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' Muppet to appear for more than one scene or crowd shot in the 2011 film.
%%* BearyFunny
* BreakoutCharacter: One of the very few post-1990 Muppet characters to become a full-fledged member of the core cast.
%%* DeadpanSnarker: Deadpan ''everything''.
* DadTheVeteran: In the 2015 series he has a daughter in the girl scouts and a past spent fixing helicopters for "The Service". Such skills are [[spoiler:not]] transferable to the fixing of elevators.
* DependingOnTheWriter: His intelligence has varied from project to project. When he first appeared in ''Series/MuppetsTonight'', he was pretty dim-witted. In the movies, he was generally a MinionWithAnFInEvil. By ''Series/TheMuppets2015'', he was one of the smarter characters.
%%* TheDitz
* GentleGiant: Like Fozzie, he's more of a teddy bear than a menacing one.
%%* MinionWithAnFInEvil: In two separate movies now.
%%* SmallNameBigEgo
* ThoseTwoGuys: In ''The Muppets'' and ''Most Wanted'', he spends most of his screentime with Uncle Deadly.

!!Johnny Fiama
[[quoteright:240:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fiama.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Bill Barretta
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
%%* CasanovaWannabe
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome / DemotedToExtra: His appearances became much more limited after 2005, with the ''Bohemian Rhapsody'' video from 2009 being his final appearance to date. And with his performer Bill Barretta confirming in 2015 that his puppet had deteriorated (along with Sal Minella's), it's even more unlikely that he'll be seen again anytime soon.
** TheBusCameBack: Johnny and Sal appeared in the recent trailer for ''Muppets Haunted Mansion'' as ghosts, confirming their comeback in the special.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Sal Minella.
%%* LoungeLizard
* MeaningfulName: Fiama is an anagram of Mafia, a reference to the rumor that Frank Sinatra achieved fame through his underworld connections.
* MommasBoy: Johnny Fiama loves his mama.
* {{UST}}: With [[spoiler:Miss Piggy]], of all people.

!!Sal Minella
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/salminella.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Brian Henson
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* DemotedToExtra: Just like with Johnny Fiama, his appearances became much more limited after 2005, mostly because his performer Brian Henson stopped being a full-time performer. The ''Bohemian Rhapsody'' video from 2009 is his final appearance to date. And it's all the more unlikely we'll be seeing him again after confirmation from Bill Barretta (Johnny Fiama's performer) in 2015 that his puppet had deteriorated (along with Johnny's). However, six years after that, Sal and Johnny Fiama showed up as ghosts in the Disney+ special ''Muppets Haunted Mansion'', with Brian Henson returning to perform Sal.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He makes a (very) brief appearance during the opening number of ''Muppets Treasure Island.''
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Johnny Fiama.
* ThoseTwoGuys: He and Johnny are practically inseparable.

!!Seymour
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seymour_elephant.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Brian Henson

%%* LesserStar

!!Dr. Phil Van Neuter
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/228fb_vanneuter.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Brian Henson
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
----
* TheBusCameBack: Van Neuter returned for the first time in two decades in ''Film/MuppetsHauntedMansion''.
* FreudianExcuse: This guy's been messed up his whole life.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Mulch. Although the "heterosexual" part gets a little murky when you see that Phil's wife, Composta Heap, is essentially Mulch in drag...
** Actually, it was stated that the only reason he hired Mulch to begin with was because Composta is Mulch's sister, instead making his employment an act of Nepotism.
%%* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
%%* MadDoctor
%%* SissyVillain

!!Mulch
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/509_6.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Jerry Nelson (1980), Kevin Clash (1996-1997)
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* EarlyBirdCameo: He originally appeared on ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' during its fifth season and as a FrankensteinsMonster in the ''Nephew of Frankenstein'' sketch from ''The Muppets Go to the Movies''.
* TheIgor: He's a grotesque brute who serves as Dr. Phil Van Neuter's assistant.
* TheUnintelligible: Became this on ''Series/MuppetsTonight''. With the exception of the end credits' blooper reels, he does not say anything other than inarticulate growls.

!!Big Mean Carl
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mt_bigmeancarl.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Bill Barretta
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsTonight''
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Sometimes, he wears nothing at all, but at other times, he just wears a necktie or a set of bunny ears.
* BigEater: He continues the proud tradition of Muppet monsters with voracious appetites.
* TheBigGuy: He's one of the bigger Muppets. It says so in his name.
* BreakoutCharacter: Like Pepe the King Prawn and Bobo the Bear, he is one of the very few post-1990 Muppets who is still a prominent recurring character in Muppet productions, albeit not as prominently as Pepe or Bobo.
* {{Catchphrase}}: Carl tends to end most of his appearances by shouting, "THANK YOU!"
* ComedicSociopathy: The main drive of his character is that he eats living things without remorse.
* DreadfulMusician: In one of his acts, he tries to play the violin and sounds awful.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Like his coworkers, he invites his mother to work in the last episode of ''Muppets Tonight''.
* ExtremeOmnivore: As all good Muppet monsters are, there is very little he won't devour.
* FlatCharacter: When he appears, it is usually just to eat other characters and be mean.
* JerkAss: They don't call him Big Mean Carl for nothing.
* NoIndoorVoice: He tends to shout every line. It makes it hard to tell when he's not angry, especially when he's repeating a message.
-->'''Big Mean Carl:''' I JUST TAKE MESSAGES. I DON'T JUDGE TONE!
* StrongFamilyResemblance: His mother Carla looks and sounds like Carl in drag. So does his sister, also named Carla.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: On ''Muppets Tonight'', he seems to have a different act every time he appears on stage, with his stage name changing a bit for each act ("Carl the Big Mean _____"). Averted during all the ''Swift Wits'' segments, where he's always in his Big Mean Bunny persona.

!!Walter
[[quoteright:220:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/walter_muppet.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Peter Linz
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppets2011''
----
* AscendedFanboy: The lucky guy gets to meet his idols, help them come back to relevance and even gets a part in their telethon and becomes a member of the gang!
* AudienceSurrogate: As Tough Pigs put it, "(...)Walter is us. I related with his character so much, I practically expected him to say that he runs his own website for Muppet Fans Who Grew Up."
* AuthorAppeal: Creator/JasonSegel, who co-wrote the 2011 ''Muppets'' film (and also portrays Gary) grew up watching the original Muppet show and has a great affection for the characters, and Walter’s own love of the Muppets was heavily influenced by this.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He was completely absent from [[Series/TheMuppets2015 the 2015 show]] aside from the 10-minute presentation pilot, which is very notable considering that far less important Muppets made appearances in it and his puppeteer worked on the show. He ultimately returned in 2017.
* {{Fanboy}}: Of the Muppets. Because he ''is one'' himself, not that he knew that.
* {{Keet}}: He's very excitable and energetic, especially when fanboying.
* HiddenDepths: He can whistle, but he didn't think of it as a talent until he was put on the spot and had to do something to fill time.
** Gary and Walter are given the task of putting costumes together, and the former briefly mentions that he and Walter are both "really good sewers".
* NiceGuy: Walter is very kind and friendly to others.
* ObliviousAdoption: {{Averted}}. The film never even addresses how human Gary and Muppet Walter are brothers.
** According to Jason Segel, they just decided the audience will [[MST3KMantra go with it]], like how in ''Film/TheGreatMuppetCaper'', people just went with the idea of Fozzie and Kermit being identical twin brothers.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Walter never ages while growing up, unlike his human brother Gary. He’s 30 years old during the events of the 2011 film, [[AllThereInTheScript according to the writers]], but doesn’t look any different from when he was a child.
* OutOfFocus: Played with in ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'', where he's still a main character, but the classic Muppets get more focus than in ''Film/TheMuppets2011''.
* PutOnABus: Despite Peter Linz being credited for every episode, and Walter appearing in the original pilot (with no lines), Walter does not make a single appearance in the 2015 TV series.
** [[spoiler:He's back in the Muppets Now, as the format works better for his excitable nature.]]
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: Walter is [[OriginalGeneration a brand-new Muppet created for the film]] and is described as a plain brown Whatnot. [[{{Deconstruction}} He's not exactly a fan of how generic he is]].
* StageFright: So bad he managed to [[ImpactSilhouette make a Walter-shaped hole in a brick wall]] when running away.
* VictorianNovelDisease: Prone to fainting when he gets overexcited or overstimulated, despite being able to withstand an electric fence shocking him. He faints seeing Kermit in the flesh and after waking up, he's told he was brought into Kermit's ''house'', immediately fainting again (albeit much more briefly).

!!80's Robot
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/80srobot_white.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Matt Vogel
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppets2011''
----
* ArtificialIntelligence: Well, he ''is'' a robot, so this is a given.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Unlike Walter, who was only absent temporarily after ''Muppets Most Wanted'', 80's Robot's absence is another story as 80's Robot has yet to make appearances outside of ''Muppets Most Wanted''.
* ComputerVoice: He speaks in a stereotypically monotonous robotic voice.
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Muppets Most Wanted'', where he doesn't have any lines at all.
* DiscoDan: Apparently never got the input code that TAB and New Coke are out of vogue.
%%* DoAnythingRobot
* TheEighties: He looks as though he was constructed sometime in that decade, which may explain his name.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: He's one of the rare Muppets not to have any mouth where the puppeteer's hand can operate from. He's all remote-controlled by someone off-screen. If he were to appear in any other movie, audiences wouldn't think of him as a Muppet at all.
%%* RoboSpeak
* RobotMaid: Introduced as a butler for Kermit when he is found living in his mansion. Assumed to act as someone Kermit can talk to without being completely lonely... [[RoboSpeak to an extent]].
* TotallyRadical: Speaks in 80s slang. Grody to the max!

!!The Moopets
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/themoopets.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Tyler Bunch (Foozie), Matt Vogel (Janoose), Dave Goelz (Kermoot), David Rudman (Miss Poogy), Matt Vogel (Roowlf), and Music/DaveGrohl (Animool)
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppets2011''

A thug styled Muppets tribute band from Reno Nevada. They were originally headlined by the real Fozzie Bear, but aside from him group shares very few similarities with who they are based on.
----
* AscendedExtra: Miss Poogy would end up joining the actual Muppets towards the end of the movie. Originally she was a temporary replacement for Miss Piggy, but she continued to show up in Muppets shows and movies afterwards, though mostly in minor roles.
* DarkerAndEdgier: They're all dark and gritty thugs styled after the Muppets.
* {{Jerkass}}: All of them, but Miss Poogy the most, lacking her counterpart's better qualities.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: All of them are Muppet styled puppets except for Animool who is just David Grohl in a cheap Animal costume.
* ThemeNaming: The group and the individual members are named after Muppets characters with two Os replacing a vowel.

!!Constantine
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/constantine.png]]
->'''Performed by:''' Matt Vogel
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'' (2014)

The world's most dangerous frog. He just so happens to look exactly like Kermit the Frog, save for a mole on his face.
----
* BigBad: He is the main villain in ''Muppets Most Wanted''.
* CardCarryingVillain: He relishes in his criminal status, and wants to steal the famous Crown Jewels of England to ensure that his name will go down in history as "Greatest Thief of All Time".
* FauxAffablyEvil: Constantine is only polite because he needs to be to keep the Muppets on his side.
* GlassCannon: He can take out human guards quickly and effortlessly as long as he has surprise and momentum on his side, but he's still just a frog. Piggy takes him out in seconds as soon as she gets a hold of him.
* HatesBeingTouched: He really doesn't like it, and barely puts up with it because it's crucial to his plans.
* {{Jerkass}}: How do the other gulag prisoners know that Kermit isn't him? Constantine apparently ''never'' says thank you for anything.
* KickTheDog: While his treatment of Dominic is kind of funny, it's also rather cruel. There's also framing Kermit for his escape, and [[spoiler:arranging a wedding with Miss Piggy which he would almost certainly have broken off]].
** TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:Dominic tries to betray him. Key word being tries. Piggy has more luck, effortlessly slapping him around a helicopter.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Even with his comedic moments, he is still one of the franchise's most dangerous and ruthless villains, next to [[Film/TheMuppetMovie Doc Hopper]].
* LaughablyEvil: He's just as humorous as any regular Muppet. But he's also probably [[BewareTheSillyOnes the most vile and menacing Muppet]] [[VileVillainSaccharineShow ever seen thus far]].
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: "The most dangerous frog in the world" (which, as Piggy points out in the climax, isn't really saying much).
* PaperThinDisguise: Lampshaded when some of the Muppets find out eventually. Kermit is ''not'' pleased. Granted he looks identical enough to Kermit that his low effort disguise is understandably effective.
* TalkingToHimself: Since Matt Vogel took over for Kermit, this was the case during their appearance in the 2017 Pentatonix Christmas special.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: This is one Muppet who is willing to manipulate, incriminate, and even commit mass murder in order to steal priceless jewels simply ForTheEvulz.
* VillainSong: He and Dominic sing the duet "I'm Number One" where Constantine proudly calls them "criminals at large" and sings about how he's superior to Dominic.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Demonstrates extreme stage fright. He quickly overcomes it so it doesn't interfere with his plans.

!!Denise

->'''Performed by:''' Julianne Buescher
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/TheMuppets2015'' ("Pig Girls Don't Cry")

Kermit's girlfriend in the 2015 show. They got together shortly after Kermit and Piggy had their big break-up.

* MayDecemberRomance: Downplayed to a degree, but the way Miss Piggy talks about her, she's significantly younger than Kermit.
* RomanticFalseLead: Given that she's in the way of one of TV's most famous couples, this is inevitable, [[spoiler:especially after she and Kermit split in "Swine Song".]]
* SouthernFriedGenius: Born in Georgia, and speaks with a prominent southern accent, she's pretty leveled headed, and at one point tried (but ultimately failed) to talk ''Kermit'' out of making a reckless decision.

!!Gloria Estefan
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gloriaestefanthepenguin.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Peter Linz
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/TheMuppets2015'' ("Swine Song")

An adorable baby penguin that Piggy takes home with her from a trip to Argentina. No relation to [[Music/GloriaEstefan the singer]].
----
* AmbiguousGender: Piggy calls them a "he", while Deadly calls them a "she".
* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins: The 2015 show lacks the traditional Muppet penguins, so they fill this role instead.
* MisplacedWildlife: Gloria is clearly an Emperor Penguin... and from Argentina, there are no Emperor Penguins in Argentina
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Only because Piggy couldn't think of any other Spanish-sounding names.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Looks more like a stuffed animal than the average Muppet.
* OddFriendship: One of the few Muppets that Uncle Deadly can tolerate.

!!The Horrible Goose
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/honeydew_and_goose.png]]
->'''Debut:''' ''Videogame/UntitledGooseGame'', ''The Game Awards 2019'' (as a muppet)

When Beaker demos Dr. Honeydew's new VR headset at the Game Awards something goes horribly wrong, bringing the main character of ''Untitled Goose Game'' into the real world.
----
* {{Crossover}}: The main character of Indie Game Sleeper hit ''Untitled Goose Game'' joins the Muppets to torment Beaker.
* FeatheredFiend: Somehow escapes from it's game to continue tormenting Beaker and steal the winner' envelope.

!!Joe the Legal Weasel
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/joefromlegal_0.jpg]]
->'''Performed by:''' Peter Linz
->'''Debut:''' ''Series/MuppetsNow''

A weasel who serves as the Muppets' legal consultant as well as providing legal disclaimers before shorts. His job typically causes problems for Kermit and Scooter as they try to run the show, as well as for Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker for obvious reasons.
----
* CannotTellAJoke: His attempts at humor are probably even worse than Fozzie's.
* DoNotTryThisAtHome: He provides this warning before every Muppet Labs Field Test short on ''Now''. He also makes sure that the warning isn't just limited to home.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He appeared almost a full year before the release of ''Muppets Now'', both to announce the show, and for the Muppets' Talk Like A Pirate Day video (in which he talks like someone committing digital piracy).
* EvilLawyerJoke: He doesn't hesitate to joke about his species and profession.
* LaughingAtYourOwnJokes: Quite loudly too.
* RattlingOffLegal: His job is to rattle off legalese, but he'll also do it to try and deter any antics that might be dangerous. Sadly, mere legalese is no match for Dr. Honeydew and Beaker.
-->'''Joe:''' Motion for dismissal!\\
'''Large caption:''' REJECTED.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: He embodies this trope, refusing to let Kermit reveal anything about upcoming projects besides their hypothetical existence, and forces Scooter to put the show through a test audience before being allowed to upload anything (said test audience being Statler and Waldorf).
* SignatureLaugh: He has a loud, bellowing laugh which typically follows his poor attempts at telling a joke.

A turkey who hosts the Økėÿ Døkęÿ Køøkïñ shorts. She tries to explain the dishes being prepared and introducing the celebrity guests while simultaneously dealing with the Swedish Chef's antics.
----
* NotSoAboveItAll: She's not as nuts as the Swedish Chef, but she's still a Muppet. On a few occasions, she gets distracted flirting with any male contestants on the cooking challenge.
* StraightMan: To the Swedish Chef.
* VerbalTic: She's prone to making turkey noises whenever she gets excited or flustered.

Proprietor of a French-fried frog legs fast food franchise, Doc Hopper sees Kermit the Frog as the ideal spokesman for his product. Kermit refuses to shill for him, but Hopper ''really'' won't take no for an answer...
----
* BigBad: He is the main villain of ''Film/TheMuppetMovie''.
* FatSweatySouthernerInAWhiteSuit: He's fat, wears a white suit, sells fried food, and is evil.
* IgnoredEpiphany: At the climax, Kermit gives a heartwarming speech to try and talk him down. It doesn't work.
* KnightOfCerebus: Easily one of the most vile and despicable characters in the entire franchise.
* VillainExitStageLeft: He runs away after being scared off by a giant Animal.

Doc Hopper's somewhat nerdy assistant brought Kermit to his boss's attention after seeing the frog not only ride a bicycle, but also perform with Fozzie Bear at El Sleezo's Cafe. He's initially supportive of Hopper's attempts to make Kermit a spokesfrog, but soon enough he's only sticking with the bad guy for the money, and even that motivation only goes so far...

* HeelFaceTurn: He never actually joins the good guys, but he warns Kermit and the gang about the frog killer, and is overjoyed when [[spoiler:the giant Animal]] scares Doc Hopper away.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: He's not very good at being an evil henchman.

!! Nicky Holiday
->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/CharlesGrodin
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheGreatMuppetCaper''
The brother of Lady Holiday, and the BigBad of ''The Great Muppet Caper''.
----
* AmazonBrigade: His gang consists of three girls named Carla, Darla, and Marla.
* BaitTheDog: Nicky's only virtue is that his crush on Miss Piggy is sincere and he likes her spirit. Then he frames her for theft so that he won't get caught. Unsurprisingly, Miss Piggy turns him down at the end of the movie before the cops take him away and says that while she accepts his apology, she'd rather be with Kermit.
* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: Nicky serves as this to Doc Hopper from ''Film/TheMuppetMovie''. Doc is a restauranteur who is more associated with Kermit, while Nicky is the brother of Lady Holiday and is more associated with Miss Piggy. Doc wanted Kermit to be the mascot for his french-fried frog legs restaurant, while Nicky wanted to frame Miss Piggy for jewelry theft so he could have her arrested while he stole the baseball diamond. Doc chased Kermit halfway across the country, while Nicky stayed in London the entire time. Doc had a whole army of men working for him, including a MadScientist and an assassin, whereas Nicky only had three right-hand women. Finally, while Doc [[VillainExitStageLeft ran away after being scared off by a giant Animal]], Nicky was defeated by Miss Piggy and ended up arrested.
* CrazyPrepared: Nicky and his supermodel cat burglars have all the highest tech equipment, which is put in contrast to the Muppets having nonsensical items to counter with (like a Whoopee cushion), but even then, they forgot or lost them. In one case, Animal ate one of the items.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Nicky seems like a complete moron... until you learn he's the film's BigBad.
* DatingCatwoman: Nicky tries to pull this off with Miss Piggy, but never succeeds.
* GentlemanThief: Nickey ends up being quite suave and competent under his buffoonish facade.
* LoveTriangle: Nicky has a one-sided one with Miss Piggy, who prefers Kermit.
* NearVillainVictory: Nicky and his gang almost succeed in stealing the Baseball Diamond, while simultaneously about to take Kermit hostage—until Miss Piggy shows up on her motorcycle just in time to stop them.

->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/MichaelCaine
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'' (1992)
----
* AdaptationalJerkass: Whereas in the book, Scrooge is merely a passive-aggressive grump about Christmas, here he threatens to fire his writing staff just for asking about the cold and throws a wreath at Bean Bunny for caroling.
* AdaptationalPersonalityChange: That said, in the book, he's amused by his nephew making jokes about him at Christmas. Here, he's actually ''hurt''.
* AntiHero: The same tropes from the original book can fit him here.
* BerserkButton: According to "Scrooge", asking him for a favour tends to make him worse. His reaction to the bookkeepers asking for extra coal bears this one out.
* CatchPhrase: "Bah Humbug!" of course.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: Rizzo thinks it gets colder when Scrooge walks past.
* HeelFaceTurn: One of the more famous fictional examples, caused by visits from three spirits. It's already started kicking in with the second, but cemented by the third.
* HiddenDepths: Double subverted. The people of London initially speculate he must have some, only to decide he doesn't when he passes by without a first or second glance, but as the film goes on it turns out he ''does''. They're just buried really deep.
* LargeAndInCharge: Being a human, he towers over most of the Muppets around him, helping to emphasise his intimidating stature. It also helps sell how scary the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come is, since at eight feet, it's taller than ''him''.
* MovingTheGoalposts: What doomed his relationship with Belle. He always promised they'd get married the next year, but business was never ''quite'' good enough for Scrooge's liking, even though Belle pointed out he was well off enough.
* SuddenlyShouting: "How would the bookkeepers like to be suddenly '''''UNEMPLOYED?!'''''"
* TookALevelInCheerfulness: Starts off a mean, bad-tempered man who is considered by all of London to be the worst person in the world. By the time the second spirit visits, he's noticeably brightened, even cracking jokes. After the third, he's singing.
* TookALevelInKindness: After his visit from the final spirit is enough to knock some sense into Scrooge and get him to become a better person.
* TheVillainSucksSong: "Scrooge", a song where the entirety of London sings about how unpleasant he is.
-->"''There goes Mr. Humbug, there goes Mr. Grim.''\\
''If there was a prize for being mean, the winner would be him.''"

->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/ChrisCooper
->'''Debut:''' ''Film/TheMuppets2011''

The prospect of oil under the site of the old ''Muppet Show'' theater prompts this billionaire to buy the building under the guise of turning it into a museum. When the good guys learn of his scheme to raze it, their quest to raise enough money to buy it back begins. He's got all the trappings of a classic kiddie-movie villain...except the EvilLaugh.
----
* AxCrazy: Not in the sense that he wants to kill anyone, but near the end of the movie he becomes hellbent on destroying everything in his path to ruin the Muppets' career.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:Technically, since the Muppets ''do'' fail to meet their goal of raising ten million dollars. In the end, it doesn't matter, due to his bowling ball-induced HeelFaceTurn.]]
* BigBad: Of ''Film/TheMuppets2011''.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He's an evil oil baron.
* FreudianExcuse: A deleted scene depicts a young Richman discovering his inability to laugh while watching the Muppets, causing his friends to mock him. He swore revenge on the Muppets for bringing about his humiliation.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Thanks to Gonzo's bowling ball.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He initially starts out as a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk up until his long overdue LaserGuidedKarma courtesy of Gonzo over the end credits.

Constantine's right-hand man, Dominic gets tangled up with the Muppets even before his boss does, suggesting that they go on a world tour and kicking off the movie's plot.
----
* AffablyEvil: He's surprisingly polite, all things considered.
* BeardOfEvil: Ricky Gervais keeps his beard for the role.
* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:His efforts to overthrow Constantine end terribly, and he's ultimately laughed into prison.]]
* ButtMonkey: He's treated like this in the song "I'm Number One", with a door swinging into his face being one such example of him being a victim of this trope.
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:Is on the receiving end of one of these, courtesy of Constantine.]]
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:He attempts to betray Constantine because he treats him horribly. [[CurbStompBattle It doesn't work.]]]]
* TheDragon: To Constantine.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: He doesn't like his boss, however.
* EvilBrit: For a given measure of "evil", given how he's rather affable.
* HyperCompetentSidekick: While Constantine is plenty competent for the most part, he does the lion's share of his and Constantine's activities, from heists to keeping up the charade that Constantine is Kermit. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, betrayal is one of the few areas he's lacking in.]]
* ILied: This realization is first Lampshaded by Walter when he informs Fozzie that Dominic Badguy lied and he's responsible for the ticket sales numbers.
* InsistentTerminology: Insists his last name is pronounced "Bahd-gee" when introducing himself to the Muppets and claims [[BlatantLies it means "good man."]]
* MeaningfulName: They don't call him Badguy for nothing.
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: [[spoiler:His failed betrayal is partly out of greed, but mainly because Constantine treated him like rubbish]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Downplayed, but someone called "Dominic Badguy" probably isn't the most heroic character. He manages to persuade the Muppets that it's pronounced "bahd-gee".
* ObviouslyEvil: Oh come on. Just look at his name!
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:His betrayal may have ended disastrously, but it did slow Constantine down]].
* TheBadGuyWins: Or so he thought; Constantine set the record straight for Dominic after stating he doesn't tolerate his own boss attempting to betray him before ejecting him from the helicopter.
* TheStarscream: As explained in his VillainSong duet with Constantine [[spoiler:and later demonstrated during Dominic's attempted coup, key word being "attempted"]].
* VillainSong: He and Constantine sing the duet "I'm Number One" where Constantine proudly calls them "criminals at large" and sings about how he's superior to Dominic.

A feisty Russian prison guard who loves Broadway and has a crush on Kermit.
----
* DreadfulMusician: She's... enthusiastic, at least, but her singing of "I Need This Job" alarms Kermit. Whether she actually is or isn't, we don't get to see, because just as she gets to her big solo number... [[spoiler:the movie ends.]]
* GenreSavvy: Works out most of Kermit's escape plans owing to her watching many prison films on Netflix. [[spoiler:Breaking out with the cover of a show wasn't something she saw coming]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's a little rude and manipulative, but at the end of the film, [[spoiler:she lets Kermit go after realizing that she'd take him away from his family if she took him back to prison]].
* StalkerWithACrush: It seemed Nadya quickly figured out Kermit wasn't the criminal that belonged in her gulag. But her StalkerShrine to Kermit in her locker implies she had her own reasons for keeping him in her gulag.

* ManipulativeBastard: Is not above using underhanded tactics to get his way, from having guest stars pulled at the last minute to bribing the writers with new suits.
* PretentiousPronunciation: He insists his name is spelled "Pizza" for branding purposes, even though, as the Muppets point out, pizza in and of itself is not technically a brand.
