Tadashi had to mature at a very young age after his parents' death to be a good role model and father figure to his younger brother.²* {{Adorkable}}: Best proven when Baymax's video shows how happy he is after finally activating Baymax (after 84 tries), prompting him to run around and kiss Baymax.²* AllLovingHero: Tadashi's concerns extend to the general public; he developed Baymax with the sincere hope that the healthcare companion would help people all over the world. He is dedicated to helping others no matter what the cost is to him, a statement undeniably proven when he makes the ultimate sacrifice in an attempt to protect his teacher.²* AlwaysSecondBest: Tadashi's voice actor Daniel Henney states that Tadashi "had his bad days" where he was jealous of Hiro's intellect and felt inferior to him, but pushed it away because supporting Hiro was more important.²* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: It is implied that Hiro feels that he'll never be as great as Tadashi.²* AngerBornOfWorry: In the movie, after asking Hiro if he's okay and hurt as they escape Yama and his goons, Tadashi does a hilarious 180° and starts berating Hiro ''while driving on his moped''.²-->'''Tadashi''': You okay?!²-->'''Hiro''': Yeah!²-->'''Tadashi''': Are you hurt?!²-->'''Hiro''': No!²-->'''Tadashi''': Then ''what were you thinking?! Knucklehead!''²* ArcWords: "Someone has to help!" becomes this to Hiro. Justified as [[FamousLastWords they're Tadashi's last words]] and they had a great impact on Hiro.²* AsianAndNerdy: Like Hiro, Tadashi is half White and half Japanese, and is a robotics student.²* AugmentedReality: In "Obake Yashiki", [[spoiler: Obake uses projections via contact lenses on Hiro to give him the impression Tadashi [[BackFromTheDead came back from the dead]].]]²* BackFromTheDead: In the series episode "Obake Yashiki", or perhaps his spirit [[spoiler:but this, unfortunately, is not the real Tadashi.]] ²* BadassBiker: Escapes Yama and his goons on his moped like a pro. Too bad he and Hiro get arrested soon after, though.²* BigBrotherBully: PlayedForLaughs and subverted. He grabs Hiro by the ankles and shakes him around to get him to come up with a project for the tech showcase.²* BigBrotherInstinct: One of his defining traits is how protective he is of his little brother:²** In his EstablishingCharacterMoment, he rushes in to save Hiro when he is about to be beaten up by Yama's goons after Yama discovers that Hiro hustled him.²** A blink-and-you'll-miss-it-moment, but Tadashi gives a DeathGlare to Krei when he was gonna leave with the microbot (surely to steal it), and looks at Hiro protectively. [[https://66.media.tumblr.com/6fa3c7749fcea06c626a63cd7ae29587/tumblr_nta1glypyN1u8rkcpo2_r1_250.gifv See for yourself.]]²** In the manga, Tadashi chased after some kids who were bullying Hiro.²** In the series' ChristmasEpisode "The Present", a flashback scene shows a young Tadashi jumping Hiro to safety when his snow machine goes haywire.²* BigBrotherMentor: For Hiro. As the only male figure in his little brother's life, he has carried the burden of responsibility from a young age, knowing he had to lead Hiro and be a good role model.²* BigDamnHeroes: Arrives on his scooter with perfect timing to save Hiro from an angry Mr. Yama.²* BigManOnCampus: According to Wasabi, Tadashi is considered "a legend" at SFIT. Many students such as Karmi admired him and his work.²* BigOlEyebrows: Like Hiro, Tadashi has bushy eyebrows.²* BrainyBrunette: Tadashi has black hair, is a student at SFIT, and created Baymax.²* ButNotTooForeign: Like Hiro, Tadashi is half Japanese, half white.²* TheCameo: Tadashi has multiple ones through the series, mostly through photographs and video footage from Baymax's tests. Though he's not always in the center of the intrigue, it showcases that he's not forgotten and will always be part of Hiro's life.²* CanonForeigner: In the original ''Big Hero 6'' comics, Hiro never had a sibling. Tadashi is, essentially, a stand-in for comic-book Hiro's father.²* CatchPhrase:²** Says "unbelievable" whenever exasperated.²** "Look for a new angle." ²** "I'm not giving up on you."²* ChronicHeroSyndrome: He feels the need to help, even when there's nothing that can be done. This gets him killed, trying to save Professor Callaghan from a burning building despite his own lack of rescue experience or equipment.²* CoolBigBro: Tadashi is eternally supportive of Hiro, and encouraged him to do something great with his genius.²* DareToBeBadass: He encourages Hiro to use his smarts for something greater.²* DeadHatShot: After being killed off-screen, there's a shot of Tadashi's cap while Hiro is heard screaming his brother's name in the background.²* DeadpanSnarker: "Wow. Washed up at fourteen. ''So sad.''"²* DeathByOriginStory: Deconstructed. His death is what spurs Hiro to fight Yokai, but his grief from it is what drives him into RevengeBeforeReason, nearly murdering Yokai when he finds out who he is. ²* DeathGlare: ²** Tadashi gives a hilarious one to Hiro when they're both in jail; most specifically, as Hiro has his cell to himself due to being a minor and Tadashi is squished against the bars of the cell by the other botfighters.²** A blink-and-you'll-miss-it, but he gives [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/bighero6/images/2/2e/Big-hero-6-disneyscreencaps.com-462.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20171209154214 a brief one to Yama and his thugs]] while he rescues Hiro from them.²** He gives another, more discrete one to Krei when he was gonna leave with Hiro's invention.²** In the deleted AMinorKidroduction [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IICiD6KeLvw prologue (starting at 0:32)]], [[BigBrotherInstinct a younger Tadashi]] gives a nasty one to bullies making fun of Hiro, which scares them enough to walk out the class with their heads low.²* DecompositeCharacter: He has some traits that originally belonged to Hiro's older and more mature comic counterpart, such as being the one to build Baymax. ²* {{Determinator}}: Tadashi did ''eighty-four'' tests before Baymax finally worked. He also wasn't going to give up on Hiro constantly encouraging him to do something with his life.²-->'''Tadashi''': I'm ''not'' giving up on you...²* DiesDifferentlyInAdaptation: In the manga adaptation, Tadashi doesn't die in a fire, he gets sucked into a portal while trying to help Robert Callaghan bring Abigail back. Hiro believes that he could be alive in AnotherDimension but Baymax confirmed that he wasn't in the AcidTripDimension where they found Abigail.²* DubNameChange: In the Korean and Mandarin Chinese dub of the film, Tadashi is renamed "Teddy Armada".²* TheDutifulSon: More like "The Dutiful Nephew", but Tadashi is the more responsible one than Hiro, and makes it clear that his brother has to make it up to their aunt for his illegal botfighting.²* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His first scene involves him saving Hiro from Yama and his goons, asking if he's alright before punching him for doing such a dangerous stunt, and also asking Hiro if he plans to use talents for something better.²* ExhaustedEyeBags: Can be seen in one of video footages of him testing Baymax.²* FamousLastWords: "Callaghan's in there! Someone has to help!"²* {{Fanboy}}: Hiro mentions that Tadashi was a big fan of Trevor Trengrove and got inspired by his theory to build Baymax. [[spoiler: Turns out the theory was actually Wendy Wower's, which Trengrove stole from her, and he ends up idolizing her later on.]]²* FatalFlaw: His selflessness when he tries to save Callaghan from the fire. He doesn't consider that Hiro might try to follow him inside (which Hiro does) or the grief it would cause Hiro if he fails.²* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Tadashi is the Responsible to Hiro's Foolish. He regularly attends school (unlike Hiro, who spends most of his time bot-fighting since he graduated from high school early) and encourages Hiro to be more productive with his intelligence. In the beginning of the film, he's the one who bails Hiro out of trouble when Yama's goons are about to beat him up.²* TheGadfly: Is not above playfully teasing his brother, as revealed in the scene where he tells him his fly was down for the whole time Hiro presented his project at the showcase... and it was correct.²* TheGlassesGottaGo: A meta example. Early concept arts of Tadashi had him wearing glasses, but it was eventually dropped.²* HandshakeSubstitute: He and Hiro would fist bump and then make explosion noises.²* TheHeart: Tadashi provides the optimistic drive to the motivations of his friends and his younger brother. ²* HiddenDepths: Despite being the {{Determinator}} and always encouraging Hiro to never give up, "Failure Mode" shows a complete different side of Tadashi: being frustrated after 57 missed attempts and considering giving up. Shows that even if he was optimistic and determinate, Tadashi was still human and had bad days where he considered giving up was an option, thinking spending so much time and energy on Baymax was pointless and would never work.²-->'''Hiro''': I never saw him like that...²* HollywoodNerd: He looks like a male model, or perhaps a Disney Prince, but he's skilled with building robots.²* HonorBeforeReason: He goes in to attempt to save Callaghan from a building ''completely'' engulfed in flames, with nothing but one eyewitness account that Callaghan was still in the building in the first place. While this ''is'' very noble, on the other side of the coin, he doesn't even remotely consider that his brother may go in after him, which Hiro does in fact attempt to do or the grief he will inflict upon Hiro if he fails in his rescue attempt (which he does).²* IconicItem: Is rarely seen without his San Fransokyo Ninjas baseball cap. [[TragicKeepsake It's one of the few things Hiro has left of him after his death]].²* ItRunsInTheFamily: He scolds Hiro for bot fighting the exact same way Aunt Cass scolds him and Hiro after bailing them out of jail. Also the use of the word "knucklehead".²* KilledOffScreen: Died in the Exposition Hall explosion trying to rescue Callaghan. The only thing the audience sees is the building exploding, and a shot of Tadashi's cap while Hiro screams his name in the background.²* LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Hiro, Tadashi isn't just his big brother. He's also his best friend and the most important figure in his life. His death sent Hiro into depression.²* MeaningfulName: A common meaning for Tadashi's name is "loyal" and his name sounds like the Japanese adjective ''tadashii'' (正しい) which means "fair," "proper," or "righteous." All of which matches his NiceGuy and AllLovingHero personality.²* MixedAncestry: He's half white and half Japanese.²* MoralityPet: A posthumous one to Karmi. Karmi sympathizes to Hiro over his brother's demise, and admits that she greatly admired Tadashi and his work.²* MrFanservice: Is definitely attractive, and his clothes have been shown emphasizing his muscles and broad shoulders. Even the series' exaggerated geometric style seem to show those well.²* {{Nephewism}}: He and Hiro were raised by their Aunt Cass after their parents died.²* NerdsAreSexy: He's an attractive robotics major.²* NiceGuy: His character description [[http://blogs.disney.com/insider/2014/07/14/big-hero-6-cast-announcement/ here]] indicates him to be one:²-->''Tadashi is a good guy. He just is. He actually developed, built and programmed a state-of-the-art nursebot--a Healthcare Companion named Baymax that will likely help millions worldwide. But it's his role as big brother that makes Tadashi truly special. Every kid needs a guy like Tadashi looking out for him, and Hiro knows just how lucky he is to have him in his life.''²* NiceHat: Has shown to frequently wear a cap with the team logo of the San Fransokyo Ninjas on the front. The back of his cap (and a white T-shirt he frequently wears) has the Ninjas' team symbol.²* OnlyFriend: To his younger brother, Hiro, before he introduces Hiro to the rest of the team.²* OutOfCharacterAlert: In "Obake Yashiki", "Tadashi" telling Hiro he doesn't need limits and that he shouldn't waste his time fixing Baymax confirms for Hiro that it's not really his brother.²* TheParagon: Tadashi will always be there to save his brother, but at the same time wants to point Hiro in the right direction.²=* ThePollyanna: Despite losing his parents at a young age and taking a huge responsibility by being Hiro's father figure, Tadashi is an optimistic individual that doesn't see giving up as an option, and shares this point of view to his younger brother.²* PosthumousCharacter: It was stated by the creators during their panel at the 2018 San Diego Comic Con that he would always have a presence in the show. Tadashi died in the movie but still appears in the series in video footages, pictures and such.²** In "Obake Yashiki," [[spoiler: Obake uses a ultra-realistic hologram of Tadashi to trick Hiro.]]²** He has a ''big role'' in "The Present", which happens during the first Christmas Hiro and Aunt Cass has to spend without him. He appears in flashback and video footage respectively, and is mentioned by a lot of characters.²* PrettyBoy: He's quite the handsome young man.²* PromotionToParent: Downplayed, as he and Hiro are adopted by their Aunt Cass. However, Tadashi acts not only as a CoolBigBro to Hiro, but also acts as a father figure.²* PuppyDogEyes: [[http://68.media.tumblr.com/2d6e3049e05ab959ab9a5378640ed175/tumblr_ne7sqi04731u2400eo1_1280.jpg This scene]].²-->'''Baymax''': On a scale from one to ten, how would you rate your pain?\²'''Hiro''': [[DeadpanSnarker Physical? Or Emotional?]] (glares at Tadashi)\²(Cue puppy dog eyes and frown from Tadashi.)²* RedOniBlueOni: The mature, responsible Blue Oni to Hiro's brazen, impulsive Red Oni.²* SmallRoleBigImpact: He died after ten minutes of screentime, yet his death is what triggers the main story of the movie.²* SmartPeopleBuildRobots: He created Baymax.²* SomethingTheyWouldNeverSay: In "Obake Yashiki", Hiro starts to realize the Tadashi he's been talking to is a not really his brother when he tells him limits will slow him down and to not focus his energy on continuing his old work. ²-->'''Hiro''': [''backing away from the fake Tadashi''] Tadashi would '''''never''''' say those things [...] You are '''not''' my brother!²* SoProudOfYou: In his own way to Hiro after he got an acceptance letter to San Fransokyo Institute of Technology.²-->'''Tadashi''': ''[to Hiro]'' Welcome to nerd school, nerd.²* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The Straight Man who goes to college and encourages his little brother to do the same, to Hiro's Wise Guy who spends his free time competing in illegal bot-fights.²* TallDarkAndHandsome: Tadashi is quite tall, black-haired, and extremely good-looking.²* TallDarkAndSnarky: He also has a sarcastic side.²* TaughtByExperience: When creating Baymax, Tadashi had to go through numerous failures before finally succeeding.²%% ----------------------------------------- ²%%*TooDumbToLive: Tropers are in agreement that Tadashi rushing into a burning building without any rescue experience or proper equipment was an incredibly stupid thing to do. However, this is more a story trope than a character trope and it already has an entry on the main page. Please don't duplicate it here. If you feel it could be considered "character as device", please open a discussion item so we can reach a consensus on the proper classification of this trope for this film. ²%% ----------------------------------------- ²* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: First he loses his parents and he himself becomes the victim of his own helpful nature (and by some direction, murdered at the hands of the man he idolized). Ironically, San Fransokyo becomes even more sinful following the rise of the supervillains that Big Hero 6 has to face.²* VagueAge: It doesn't help that the Japanese media calls him 21, while Hiro's San Fransokyo Files say he's 18. The general consensus is that he's somewhere between the two. Tadashi's voice actor Daniel Henney says he's either 19 or 20.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Aunt Cass]]²!!"Cass"²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aunt_cass.png]]²[[caption-width-right:350:''"For 10 years I have done the best I could to raise you.

She even defeats the supervillain and EvilChef Momakase.²* ActionMom: More like "Action Aunt". "Food Fight" shows that Aunt Cass is quite acrobatic. Oh, and she's not afraid to use knives [[MamaBear to defend her nephew from harm]].²* {{Adorkable}} : She has an almost child-like glee whenever she gets excited. It's just so cute.²* AdultFear: Her sister[[note]][[https://66.media.tumblr.com/2adf072acb5a4ee3ac7f7c265d1d8ead/tumblr_no5cuhzkoG1uofx07o1_500.jpg a picture from the Korean release]] showcases Cass is Hiro and Tadashi's maternal aunt since Mrs. Hamada is caucasian[[/note]] and brother-in-law die, leaving behind her young nephews who she raises as her own. Then her oldest nephew dies in a fire trying to save his teacher.²* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Her [[ShipperOnDeck shipper]] tendencies around Hiro and Megan embarrasses her nephew.²* AngerBornOfWorry:²** In the movie, she's introduced being mad against her nephews after being arrested, and worrying about their well-being as well as how she's been raising them over the past 10 years.²** In "The Bot-Fighter", after Hiro gets arrested, she has to bail him out [[CallBack yet again]]. She's understandably mad, and grounds Hiro. After Hiro notes he's never seen Aunt Cass that mad in a long time, Baymax notes it's out of concern for him.²* BadassDriver: Aunt Cass drives away from the buddy guards like a pro.²* BadassesWearBandanas: Wears a yellow bandana in the Food Fight cooking competitions. She quickly showcases to be a badass chef who contrary to her opponents, ''wins all the duels without cheating once''.²* BattleTrophy: As of "Food Fight", Aunt Cass collects all the knives of the chefs she defeated in the Food Fight competitions.²* CanonForeigner: She was made specifically for the film adaptation. Possibly as a stand-in for Hiro's mother, who is not dead in the comics.²* CheatersNeverProsper: She teaches this to those who try to cheat to win against her in "Food Fight." She ends up taking their knives as a BattleTrophy.²* ChefOfIron: Becomes a food-fighter in "Food Fight".²* CollectorOfTheStrange: Has ''an entire room'' full of knives that she gained from the chefs she defeated in "Food Fight".²* ComfortFood: After bailing Hiro and Tadashi out of jail, she starts eating a doughnut, while lampshading it. She also encourages it in Hiro, trying to comfort or reward him with his favorite foods, like hot wings.²* CoolAunt: Took in her nephews when they were orphaned and is an eternally loving, supporting figure for both.²* CuddleBug: Is always prone to hugging her nephews. After Tadashi's death, she has a "last hug" tendency, which is giving a second last hug to Hiro before he goes somewhere.²* DamselOutOfDistress: Though the anti-gravity device helped, Cass escaped the net Momakase trapped her in and ''is the one who neutralized Momakase with the same net'' '''by herself'''.²* ADayInTheLimelight: "Food Fight" turns around Aunt Cass participating in the underground cooking competitions, which are also attented by the villain Momakase.²* DeadpanSnarker: Has her moments, the peak of which is in "Aunt Cass Goes Out".²* DubNameChange: In the two french versions, Aunt Cass' name is changed to "Tante Cassie" (Aunt Cassie) since "Cass" sounds too anglophone.²* DudeMagnet: Over the course of the series, she catches the eye of [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Krei]], [[MonsterOfTheWeek Mel]] and [[OldFriend Chief Cruz]]. ²* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Cass' first scene has her hugging her nephews in relief after posting their bail and then angrily pulls their ears for scaring her.²* {{Fangirl}}: Fangirls hard when renowned chef Bolton Gramercy is in her café. Turns out to be a light case of BrokenPedestal when she realizes how big of a {{Jerkass}} he is.²* GenkiGirl: A rare adult type, but she is always excited and happy.²* GoodParents: She's an adoptive parent who's always doing her best to raise Hiro and Tadashi.²* HartmanHips: Let's just say that if she were to decide to have children of her own, she would be well equipped for it. Seriously, though, [[https://31.media.tumblr.com/5d81c8805951fabcb531c8e0cc633ef2/tumblr_inline_nhfyewmVFS1ql4czj.gif her hips are wider than her shoulders.]] ²* KindheartedCatLover: Owns a cat named Mochi and her coffee shop is named the "Lucky Cat Café."²* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Now that Tadashi passed away, Aunt Cass is the only family Hiro has left.²* MamaBear: ²** In the movie, she goes to the police station to bail out Hiro and Tadashi after they get into an illegal bot fight and lectures them for getting themselves in trouble afterwards, being genuinely concerned for their safety, and doing whatever she can to be the best possible motherly figure.²** In "Food Fight", when Aunt Cass was gonna get Hiro whom she thought was out botfighting, she was ready to use ''knives'' in order to protect him and herself from harm. Do '''not''' mess with Hiro...²* NervousWreck: Loses all control when worried about her nephews, and she copes with it with food.²* NiceGirl: Nurturing, loving, caring, amiable, devoted, supportive, and motherly.²* ObliviousToLove: She doesn't seem to be aware Chief Cruz has a thing for her.²* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Everyone calls her "Cass", which is a nickname derived from "Cassandra" or "Cassidy".²* OnlyOneName: Only known as "Aunt Cass", and no clue of her last name.²* OutlivingOnesOffspring: Her eldest adoptive son/nephew, Tadashi, dies in a fire at only 18 or 21.²* ParentalObliviousness: Aunt Cass has no idea of her nephew's superhero whereabouts and she buys most of Hiro's lies, despite the fact he's a [[BadLiar terrible liar]].²* ParentalSubstitute: Becomes one to Hiro and Tadashi after their parents died, then even more so to Hiro after Tadashi dies.²* ParentsAsPeople: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]]. Cass never expected to be a parent, nor did she know anything about being a parent. But she loves both her nephews, and they clearly love her back.²* ThePollyanna: After Tadashi's death, she maintains her cheerful and optimistic personality for Hiro's sake, even if [[StepfordSmiler it's clearly a façade and she obviously misses her nephew]].²* PromotionToParent: She mentions that she never expected to be a parent, but she has raised Tadashi and Hiro for ten years and always refers to them as her "boys."²* ShipperOnDeck: Introduces Hiro to Megan, the daughter of an old friend of hers, and is trying really hard to make them an item.²* SingleTear: Sheds one when she comforts Hiro over spending their first Christmas without Tadashi.²* SoProudOfYou: Cass always tells Tadashi and Hiro how proud she is of their accomplishments.²* StepfordSmiler: In the movie, she forces herself to smile in Hiro's presence in order to cheer him up after Tadashi's death, even if it's quite obvious she's suffering herself. It's shown in "The Present" where she cheers up a saddened Hiro over Tadashi's death, and only cries when he isn't looking.²* SupremeChef: ²** "Fred's Bro-tillion" had Cass cater for Fred and his family (as Hiro recommended her for the gig); she later gets a stack of orders to cater OTHER events as well.²** Demonstrated in "Food Fight," where in underground cooking duels she wins strings of matches after defeating her mentor. Given "cheating is encouraged" in said duels her ability to show CheatersNeverProsper makes her a ChefOfIron. In the duels she wins the knife set of her opponent as a BattleTrophy, and when her mentor asks for his "Nana's knives" back, she showed him her TrophyRoom before asking which knives "were his Nana's."²** Subverted in "Lie Detector", though it's PlayedForLaughs. Even if Cass is an excellent chef, she improvises a recipe of " acai-salami bowl". It's as disgusting as you might imagine, and Hiro lies about it being good not to hurt Aunt Cass' feelings.²--->'''Aunt Cass:''' ''[grimaces after tasting her acai-salami bowl]'' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Ugh! Can't believe Hiro likes this!]]²* SweetTooth: For pastries, as she has her own café.²* TrophyRoom: In "Food Fight", Cass beat so many chefs in the underground cooking competitions that she has a room dedicated to the knives she gained from them. Bolton, who asked for his Nana's knives back, is shocked, not to say the least.²-->'''Aunt Cass:''' Which one are your Nana's?²* WorthyOpponent: To Momakase. Though it's inverted as Momakase is determinate to annihilate Cass since she thinks she's better than her.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Mochi]]²!!Mochi²[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mochi.jpg]]²->'''Appearances''': ''WesternAnimation/BigHero6'' | ''[[WesternAnimation/BigHero6TheSeries The Series]]''²²The Hamada family's pet calico cat.²----²* ActionPet: Mochi looks like your average, sweet, fat cat. But mess with his owner Hiro or Baymax, and you'll regret it. See for yourself as he [[spoiler: fights Hibagon Ned and ''wins'']]!²* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Mochi has a rather long tail for a Japanese bobtail, who usually have short tails resembling those of rabbits.²* AnimalGenderBender: He's a male calico cat.[[note]]It ''is'' possible for a male cat to be a calico, but it's extremely rare, about a 0.3% chance. The gene that determines fur color patterns almost inevitably occurs on the X (female) chromosome, and the male calico would have to be born with 2 X chromosomes and 1 Y chromosome, and male calicos are usually born sterile.[[/note]]²* BadassAdorable: Took on [[spoiler:Hibagon Ned]] by himself in "Muira-Horror!" to save Hiro, [=GoGo=], Krei, and Baymax.²* BewareTheNiceOnes: Mochi is the sweetest cat... until you try to attack Hiro and Baymax.²* BigFun: He's a fat cat, and a source of funny and heartwarming moments.²* BitchInSheepsClothing: Averted in the franchise itself, but PlayedForLaughs in the chibi short "Mochi No!" where he's cute and sweet one second before viciously pulling out his claws with a devious grin the next one.²* BrickJoke: Mochi and rocket boots. In the first drafts of the movie, Mochi was supposed to be the TeamPet and have rocket boots as he accompanied Big Hero 6 on missions, before it was eventually dropped from the final project. But many [=BH6=] medias include nods to Mochi with rocket boots:²** In the final version of the movie, a black cat that resembles Mochi is seen wearing rocket boots the first time Hiro visits the nerd labk, as a nod to the early movie draft.²** In the deleted prologue of Hiro and Tadashi's childhood, they put rocket boots on Mochi who finds himself flying accross the café. Many other printed media confirm this as canon as Hiro state they did it as kids ''or'' Hiro and Tadashi do it again to Mochi in the present.²** The rocket boots come back in the "Mochi No!" short as Mochi uses it to escape Wasabi and Fred. ²* ButtMonkey: This poor cat always finds himself in the craziest situations.²* CatsAreMean: Averted. He's a chubby Japanese bobtail cat that likes to snuggle, and is one of the nicest Disney cats to date. ²* CatsAreSnarkers: Look at SilentSnarker below.²* CatsHateWater: In his short with Baymax, Mochi yowls and flails whenever the robot tries to clean him in the sink.²* CatUpATree: The premise of the "Save Mochi" Big Chibi 6 short.²* CoolCat: Already a nice, cuddly cat, he becomes even cooler after becoming "Slow Clap Cat".
