1Characters from ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio''.[[foldercontrol]][[folder:Pinocchio]]* AdaptationalHeroism: In the Disney version, some Live-Action versions and another adaptations, his misbehavior is driven by naivete rather than selfishness.* AesopAmnesia: He keeps forgetting his morals, even after suffering too much.* AnimateInanimateObject: He is alive even as a log.* AntiHero: He loves his father and the Fairy, but he is a reckless irritant. He starts out as mischievous, lazy and irresponsible.* BrattyHalfPint: He starts as an arrogant, mischievous, misbehaved kid.* BreakTheHaughty: He has to pay dearly for his bad decisions.* CantTakeCriticism: At least at the beginning, he did not take kindly that the Cricket scolded him.* DitzyGenius: A proficient student and a good worker, but a HorribleJudgeOfCharacter.* EveryoneHasStandards: Pinocchio has many flaws, but willingness to accept bribes is not one of those. Two weasels learn it the hard way.* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: He trusts the Fox and the Cat even when there are many clues that indicate that they're evil. Later, the same happens with some classmates, despite warnings of his teacher.* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He is a jerk at the start, but his willingness to sacrifice for Mangiafuoco's puppets and his crying for the Fairy's supposed death demonstrates that he is a good guy deep down. He is good in esence, but his will is weak and almost always takes the wrong decision.* KidHero: He is the hero of this story.* LivingToys: He is a puppet.* PinocchioNose: The TropeNamer. In the Fairy's house, his nose grows when he lies about his money. Strangely, the last time he lies in the novel, his nose doesn't grow.** That's because the lie he told was more to 'be polite' and not worry Geppetto - it even echos a lie that Geppetto told early on.* PinocchioSyndrome: He wants to BecomeARealBoy. He is the TropeNamer.* PlotArmor: It's really a miracle that he has survived all of the awful things of his world.[[/folder]][[folder:Maestro Cherry]]* GagNose: He even has a nickname for it.* SmallRoleBigImpact: He disappears after the two first chapters, but without him, Geppetto would have not built Pinocchio.[[/folder]][[folder:Mister Geppetto]]* BerserkButton: He hates when he is called 'Polentina'. This term is to mock his wig, because it seems polenta.* GoodParents: Although he doesn't get along with children, he does his best to be a good father to Pinocchio. He gives him the pears he intended to eat as a breakfast, he made him clothes of newspaper and crumps of bread (Geppetto is extremely poor) and sells his coat to buy him an alphabet for the school. Furthermore, he is willing to wander the world to find his son.* GrumpyOldMan: A minor example; he is polite enough to adress people, but is short-tempered. That trait gets weakened with time since he is still the nicest character of the novel.* KindheartedCatLover: Implied; there is a cat in Geppetto's old house.* MoralityChain: He is the one influencing Pinocchio to be good without even being present.* TrulySingleParent: He carves Pinocchio.[[/folder]][[folder:The Talking Cricket]]* AscendedExtra: In many adaptations, like the Disney version.* CassandraTruth: Pinocchio refuses to believe him when he tries to convince him about the consequences of a hedonistic life and the true colors of the Fox and the Cat.* TurnTheOtherCheek: Despite being killed by Pinocchio, he still tries to warn him about the Fox and the Cat and lets him live in a cabin.* UnexplainedRecovery: Pinocchio accidentally kills him, but he revives without explanation in the Fairy's house.[[/folder]][[folder:Mangiafuoco]]* FaceOfAThug: He is terrifying, but he hides a positive side.* SmallRoleBigImpact: The five coins still have an impact on the story after he is long gone.[[/folder]][[folder:The Fox and the Cat]]* BitchInSheepsClothing: They feign to be kindhearted people with handicaps, but they're con artists.* CatsAreMean: The Cat is a conman and a murderer.* FalseFriend: They fake to be kind to Pinocchio to steal his money and they even try to kill him.* ObfuscatingDisability: Both fake handicaps. The Fox feigns to have a limp and the Cat feigns to be blind; they do so to beg money. At the end, they become handicapped for real.* WouldHurtAChild: Their willingness to kill Pinocchio shows that they are not above murdering children.[[/folder]][[folder:The Fairy With Turquoise Hair]]* MoralityPet: Pinocchio loves the Fairy. He cries when he thought she is dead and sacrifices the money for a jacket when he hears she is ill.* ParentalSubstitute: She acts as Pinocchio's maternal figure and adopts him as a son while Geppetto gets trapped in the Shark.* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: She is blue-haired.[[/folder]]----
