Chuck E. Cheese
Chuck E. Cheese's current incarnation.
Counter-clockwise from upper right: P.T.T. Chuck, Tuxedo Chuck, Avenger Chuck
  • Characterization Marches On: He started out as a fairly abrasive individual who would frequently become annoyed with the antics of his co-stars, to the point of him verbally berating them at times; he eventually morphed into a much friendlier, upbeat Everyman type of guy before morphing back into being a total jerk.
  • Deadpan Snarker: As the resident straight man of the group, he can dish this out from time to time:
    Chuck: Now before we go, Mr. Munch is gonna take a look at the weather.
    Munch: Okay, I’m looking at the weather. (Turns to look out the window behind him) Back to you.
    Chuck: N-n-no Munch, I mean….what with the holidays and everything, we want to know if there’s any snow “on the map”.
    Munch: (Looking at a literal map on the table covered in snow) Oh yeah, we’ve got snow on the map…we’ve got snow all over the map, and that’s a fact. Don’t know what it’s doing outside, but there is most definitely snow on the map for the holidays. Ha ha!
    Chuck: …….Thanks, Munch.

  • Friend to All Children: So much so that he goes out of his way to do everything in his power just to make them happy, with a chain of restaurants filled to the brim with fun arcade games and junk food, prizes galore, and birthday parties for them!
  • Guyliner: At least, it certainly looks like he’s wearing it. Taken to a ridiculous extent with some the walkarounds in the PTT era, to the point of where they appeared to be wearing blush and even lipstick.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Originally so, he got better as time went on.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Helen Henny, a chicken.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: The degree as to which he’s a jerk varies between incarnations, but he’s always had a good heart underneath it all.
  • Only Sane Man: His general shtick among his co-stars, particularly in the CEC TV segments.

  • Orphan: Rockstar Chuck, as of 2012, is an orphan.
  • Loving Family: Avenger Chuck, during the Tux and Avenger eras, had a mom and dad who gave him a lot of love and care before he became an adult and traveled to New York City to perform in clubs; this is mentioned in the 1997 and 2007 versions of the song "Every Boy, Every Girl".
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: Originally had this look going for him, complete with Dashingly Dapper Derby and bowtie; later incarnations give him more casual-looking attire.
  • Nice Hat: Save for his most recent incarnation, all of his outfits have one; it was originally a derby hat, then switched to a red sports cap in the mid-90s, and finally to a purple and green cap in the mid 90s.
  • Nice Mice: He’s a mouse, and he’s a fun-loving guy who throws birthday parties for kids.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: His recent redesign is totally this.
  • Rodents of Unusual Size: Official measurements place him at nearly six feet tall. Briefly subverted in the early Rockstar commercials, which portrayed him as roughly the size of a normal rodent.
  • Ship Tease: With Helen Henny. (Astrid from Chuck E. Cheese and the Galaxy 5000 doesn't count as she cruelly tells him that she was only interested in the prize money and not him.)
  • Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome: Inverted; he seems to be getting younger with each incarnation.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Occasionally has this reaction to his friend’s antics, usually when they decide to do something outlandish.
  • The Gadfly: As the employee training tapes can attest to, he likes poking fun at others.
  • The Leader: He has always been this to the rest of his gang.
  • Toon: As revealed in the 1990s Avengere Chuck commercials.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: His initial personality was….let’s just say, not pleasant. He becomes much more hospitable by the time the Tux Era rolls around.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Helen Henny, especially in the Galaxy 5000 film. He doesn't give Helen a Love Confession directly, however, only saying to her that he never lost faith in her.
  • You Dirty Rat!: Subverted initially. He could be mean at times, but was otherwise a decent person; Nowadays he unfortunately averts this entirely.
  • Your Size May Vary: He was portrayed as human-sized until the Rockstar Era begin, which shrunk him to the size of a real rat……only to revert back to human size later on.
