Original PAW Patrol members

    General Tropes 
  • Aerith and Bob: We have pups with common names (Chase, Skye, Marshall, Ella), pups with slightly rare names (Rocky, Tuck), and then there's names like Zuma, Rubble, Everest, and Tracker.
  • Awesome Backpack: How all the pups carry their tools, voice-activated by their barks. In Season 3, a few of the pups get flight pack add-ons.
  • Badass Adorable: They're a Rescue team comprised of vehicle-driving, gadget-wielding Precious Puppies. How can they not be? Special mention goes to super spy police dog Chase and Pup-Fu practicing firefighter Marshall.
  • Catchphrase: All members have at least one.
    • As a group, the pups have "Ryder needs us!" (or sometimes, "Ryder's calling!") when they're summoned for a mission.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Generally associated with their role, such as Chase (police dog) and Marshall (fire dog) having blue and red uniforms, respectively, but still:
    • Marshall: Red
    • Rubble: Yellow
    • Chase: Royal blue
    • Rocky: Lime green
    • Zuma: Orange
    • Skye: Pink
    • Everest: Teal
    • Tracker: Jade green
    • Robo-Dog: White
    • Tuck and Ella: Sky blue
  • Cute Little Fangs: Yes, they are to be expected from dogs, but they're small and not at all scary.
  • Furry Reminder: They still have many of the usual canine mannerisms (eating out of doggie bowls, loving belly rubs and petting, enjoying doggy treats, showing affection by tackling and licking, wagging tails when pleased or excited, etc.) while they're managing PAW Patrol vehicles and equipment.
  • Heroic Dog: The entire point.
  • Interspecies Friendship: The pups and Ryder are as close as friends as they are as colleagues.
  • Kid Hero: Applies to all of the pups, who are all still young.
  • Meaningful Name: All of the characters possess names befitting their occupations (except for Tuck and Ella).
  • Mecha Expansion Pack: In Ultimate Rescue episodes, each pup's vehicle gains a number of attachments that make it big enough for the whole team to ride in, and also includes detachable extra vehicles for the other pups to operate.
  • No One Gets Left Behind: The PAW Patrol are willing to save their leader no matter the cost. Don't even try to take Ryder away from them; they will do everything in their power to get him back.
  • Parental Abandonment: The parents of the pups are absent from the series. It's especially noticeable in Everest, Tracker, Tuck, and Ella, who are perceived to be strays before meeting the PAW Patrol.
  • Precious Puppy: Ya think?!
  • Talking Animal: The pups are a notable case in that they can talk, but other non-canine animals can't.
  • Transforming Mecha: The pups' respective houses transform into their mission vehicles.
    • In season two, Chase, Marshall, and Zuma's houses can also become a spy car, an ambulance, and a mini-sub, respectively.
    • As of the season three episode "Pups Save a Stinky Flower," Rocky's recycling truck also transforms into a tugboat.
  • Undying Loyalty: The pups are loyal to Ryder especially in some scenarios like one of their members have gone missing or get captured by the enemy.
  • Vague Age: It's not clear how old they are.
    • The wiki claims they're in between 4-8 (specifically, Tracker is 4, Rubble and Zuma are 5, Marshall and Rocky are 6, Chase and Skye are 7 and Everest is 8). Tuck and Ella do not have confirmed ages.
    • The French dub specifically refers to them as puppies.note

Ryder is a human child who is called upon by various residents around Adventure Bay, giving the PAW Patrol their respective missions. He also joins them on his ATV, Vehicle No. 01. No job is too big, and no pup is too small.

  • Absurd Phobia: Brussels sprouts, to the point of having nightmares about them. We couldn't make this up if we tried.
  • Action Fashionista: He has specific outfits for Sea Patrol, Mission PAW, Air Patrol, and every type of Ultimate Rescue, as well as a scuba suit, two different Halloween outfits, pajamas, and a basketball uniform. We're guessing the lesson here is if you're gonna save Adventure Bay, you might as well do it in style.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: He has his moments that show his age, such as playing video games on his Pup-Pad when a call comes in.
  • Adorkable: There are some pretty cute moments where he mimics an animal noise during his catchphrase.
    Ryder (to a sea slug): Whenever you're in trouble, just (mimics giggling) for help!
  • Badass in Distress: Occasionally needs saving by the pups for one reason or another, notably in "Mighty Pups" where he's actively kidnapped.
  • Catchphrase: "Alright! PAW Patrol is on a roll!", "No job is too bignote , no pup is too small!", and "Whenever you're in trouble, just yelpnote  for help!"
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Has brown eyes and hair.
  • Distressed Dude: In "Pups Save Ryder", he got stranded on a cliff and needed the PAW Patrol to come save him. And in "Mighty Pups", he's actively kidnapped and held for some time (though he does ultimately manage to escape and call the pups).
  • Does Not Like Spam: Despises Brussels sprouts (though it's slightly justified, considering his age).
  • Dub Name Change: Kent in the Japanese dub, due to legal issues involving the Kamen Rider seriesnote .
  • The Leader: Ryder serves as the organizer of the team, receiving the distress calls and arranging missions for the pups when needed.
  • Improbable Age: Is 10 years old, yet runs what is essentially a regional version of International Rescue.
  • Jet Pack: Gains one in "Air Pups" alongside a birdman suit.
  • Kid Hero: Only ten years old, but is a formidable rescue crew leader.
  • Out of Focus: He often gets ignored in favor of the pups, and is often excluded from advertising/The Merch.
  • Punny Name: In the Japanese dub, Ryder's name (Kent), while being read with Japanese phonetics as "Kento/犬人", which is also a valid name there, can be read as "dog person", a name quite fitting for some who deals with dogs.
  • Red Is Heroic: Part of his vest is red, and he's a Kid Hero.
  • Ship Tease: He's implied to have a crush on Katie.
  • Spiky Hair: Had this, and a few episodes imply it's natural.
  • Stout Strength: While he looks small, he can lift every pup, a treasure chest, and a goat.
  • Team Dad: A surprisingly young example. He's usually the one taking care of/looking out for the pups.
  • Token Human: A human among eight dogs.
  • Transforming Vehicle: Though not to the same level as the pups' homes, his ATV can take on other modes for all-terrain travel, like its jetski or snowmobile modes.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Is the leader of the rescue team of an entire town despite being only 10 years old, can remain completely professional while on a job, and the town deeply respects him and his team for it.

Marshall is a Dalmatian pup that serves as the firefighter dog of the group. Goodhearted and ready to go, Marshall is often tripped up by his klutziness. Nevertheless, he manages to be an effective rescuer-even if he might end up falling down his fire engine's ladder.

As expected, his home, Vehicle No. 3, is a fire truck. In Season 2, it also takes the form of a rescue ambulance.

  • Adorkable: Marshall's clumsiness, mixed with his goodhearted attempts to help people, just makes him all the more precious.
  • Bad Liar: He's not very good at keeping secrets. When Rocky explained that he was keeping Chase busy while the others prepared his surprise party, everyone reacted in disbelief. Sure enough, when the scene changes to him and Chase, he's visibly struggling to keep up the ruse.
  • Butt-Monkey: At the very least, he's prone to slapstick. And getting his head stuck in stuff.
  • Catchphrase: "I'm fired up!" and "Ready for a ruff, ruff rescue!"
  • Dub Name Change: Marcus, in the French dub.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Birds really like the guy.
  • Interspecies Friendship: With Fuzzy, a goose chick Marshall bonded with and later helped reunite with his flock, while also facing his fear of heights.
  • Jet Pack: In "Air Pups," he receives a version that also has water-propelled VTOL jets, akin to a flyboard.
  • The Klutz: Marshall's defining trait.
    • Exploited in "Sea Patrol: Pups Save Their Pirated Sea Patroller". Marshall is able to use his clumsiness to distract his captor, Sid, by spraying him in the face and causing him to chase after him, providing an opening for Robo-Dog to re-take the bridge of the Sea Patroller.
    Marshall: Sometimes it's good to be clumsy!
  • Making a Splash: His water cannons, primarily used for firefighting, can also be used to spray other liquids. In "Mission PAW: Quest for the Crown", Marshall is given a "Hydro Launcher", which fires a single jet of water powerful enough to cut through a wooden door.
  • Meaningful Name: The firefighter pup, named after a firefighter marshal.
  • The Medic: Since Season 2, this has been Marshall's other role in the series, complete with an X-ray monitor in place of the usual water cannons.
  • Performance Anxiety: He sometimes suffers from this; in "Pups Save a Show," he had to fill in for Chase (who came down with a sore throat) in the pups' play, and was so nervous he could barely bring himself to get on stage, and even flubbed his first few lines. He experiences this again in "Pups Save the Talent Show," where he is terrified by the idea of singing on stage without Rubble.
  • Playing with Fire: In the Mighty Pups special, he gains the ability to channel heat through his paws.
  • Pungeon Master: Sometimes makes these when he ends up crashing into the other pups. Sometimes they're well-received, other times, not so much.
  • Red Is Heroic: Red is his theme color.
  • Running Gag: Marshall getting his head stuck in something, excitedly rushing to the elevator, crashing into it/the other pups, and tripping/falling are the series' main running gags. Also, expect him to have something fall onto his face and/or fall down the rungs of his ladder if he's using it to (try and) rescue someone.
  • Ship Tease: Marshall is implied to have a crush on Everest. This can be seen in "Pups and the Big Freeze".
  • Sleepwalking: The "ghost" of "Pups Save a Ghost" turns out to be Marshall walking around in his sleep. Ironically, amusingly, and befitting to the trope, he manages a skateboard and a surfboard far better in his sleep than he does while awake.
  • Sweet Tooth: When a batch of jam the Patrol intended to enter in a competition gets a whole bag of sugar dumped into it, Marshall remarks that he likes it, despite some of his teammates gagging from the sugary taste in the background.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Marshall has a fear of heights-or more specifically, a fear of being dangled in the open air (as he manages to handle climbing his ladder just fine). He seems to have overcome it in "Air Pups," given that he's perfectly fine with his water-propulsion pack.
  • Youthful Freckles: Marshall has freckles on his cheeks.

    Rubble

Rubble is an English Bulldog pup that serves as the construction dog of the group. He is an accomplished digger with his paws, which led to him becoming a member of PAW Patrol. Like the others, he's usually very enthusiastic about missions, as well as any chance to put his bulldozer to use.

As expected, his home, Vehicle No. 06, is a bulldozer with an auger excavator in the back. Sometimes, the latter is replaced with a crane.

  • The Baby of the Bunch: "Pups Get A Rubble" reveals that he's the youngest member of the group, even being smaller in the flashbacks than he is in the present. As such, he can be a little more childish than the other pups, like when he plays "Super Rubble," even while on a mission.
  • The Big Guy: Among the pups, naturally due to being a construction pup.
  • Catchphrase: "Rubble on the double!" and "Let's dig it!"
  • Cute Little Fangs: Rubble's are rather prominent.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Kittens seem to have this effect on him, as seen in "Pups & the Kitty-tastrophe" and "Pups Leave Marshall Home Alone."
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Has amber eyes the same color as his fur.
  • Didn't Think This Through: In his attempts to act as a "Super Pup", Rubble rushes to aid a trapped train without alerting the others or carrying his pack, wanting to handle it all by himself. His efforts get him trapped inside the tunnel.
  • Drill Tank: In "Mission PAW: Quest for the Crown", Rubble receives a new vehicle in this style, the "Mini-Miner".
  • Dub Name Change:
    • Ruben, in the French dub.
    • Крепыш (Krepysh, meaning burly) in the Russian dub.
  • Elvis Impersonator: His Halloween costume in the Ghost Ship episode, complete with him repeating the phrase "Blue Suede".
  • Fanboy: While all the pups are fans of the show, Rubble especially loves Apollo the Super Dog. He even dresses like titular hero during two missions.
  • Hoverboard: In "Air Pups," he receives a duct fan-powered version, allowing him to take to the skies. His prior love of skateboarding and snowboarding means he takes to it very quickly.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: In one episode he got jealous over Skye's apparent crush on Francois.
  • Growling Gut: A recurring gag with Rubble involves his tummy loudly announcing it needs food.
  • Identical Stranger: In the episode with the pirate treasure, the mysterious Captain Blackfur turns out to have been an exact lookalike of Rubble, only with a goatee. And this was foreshadowed when Blackfur's hat perfectly fit Rubble's head. It's not stated if they were related in any way.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is related to fragments of stone and rock, which are used for construction, and he’s the construction pup.
  • Origins Episode: "Pups Get a Rubble" shows that Rubble was saved by the PAW Patrol after he nearly fell off a cliffside branch. Wanting to join them, Rubble proved himself by putting his digging skills to use to save Jake when he was trapped in the snow.
  • Sleep Cute: In "Pups Save an Adventure," the other pups fawn over how cute he looks when he's sleeping.
  • Sleep Mask: He has been shown to wear one on a few occasions, usually leading him to get tripped up.
  • Super Strength: Gains this power in Mighty Pups, which allows him to, among other things, perform a Shockwave Stomp.
  • Tender Tears: Rubble is the pup who has been shown shedding tears, and he makes quite the sad expressions despite such instances being brief. He also tends to be the pup who shows the most disappointment when he's not yet called for a mission he wants to partake in.
  • Tunnel King: Rubble is an accomplished digger, even without his shovel pack. As seen in his debut episode, he was able to dig into the heavy snow to rescue Jake.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?:
    • Rubble really doesn't like spiders, to the point of worrying that he might catch "spider cooties". It doesn't help that they have a tendency to drop right down on/near his nose.
    • In "Mission PAW: Royally Spooked", he shows a fear of ghosts, to the point where he can't bear to be in the supposedly haunted castle of Barkingburg (though he faces his fear in the end to save Sweetie).
    • His fear of bats is revealed in "Pups Party With Bats," but he overcomes it when it turns out the bats love his DJ music.

    Chase

Chase is a German Shepherd pup that serves as the police dog of the group. He generally tries to uphold a professional attitude, and often is called upon for his police skills and cruiser's winch. Starting in Season 2, he has also gained spy gear to aid in missions.

His home, Vehicle No. 02, takes the form of a Police SUV, equipped with a retractable winch. In Season 2, it can also take the form of a Spy Mobile Command Center.

  • Adorkable: He has his moments, mostly when he fails to keep up his professional appearance. Or when he's ecstatic to see that Skye's alright, but quickly attempts to hide it.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Starting in Season 2, Chase becomes the obligatory skeptic character whenever the PAW Patrol may be dealing with a supernatural case. This can be somewhat justified by him being a police dog, but it gets confusing when he's met an alien and Mer-Pups.
  • Blue Is Heroic: A blue-wearing police officer.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Chase has a crush on Skye, but has yet to tell her. Justified, as he's basically a little kid who's also trying to maintain a professional attitude.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "(Super Spy) Chase is on the case!" and "These paws uphold the laws!"
    • There's also "Ready for action, Ryder, sir!", which was changed to "PAW Patrol ready for action, Ryder sir!" after Season One.
  • Cool Bike: In "Mission PAW: Quest for the Crown", Chase gains a Spy ATV.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Has brown fur and eyes.
  • Dub Name Change: Гонщик (Gonshchik, meaning racer) in the Russian dub.
  • Grappling-Hook Pistol: His spy-pack contains a zipline.
  • Interspecies Friendship: With Little Hooty, an owlet who came to the PAW Patrol to get their help in saving his mother while she was trapped in a tree dangling off a cliff.
  • Knuckle Cracking: In "Sea Patrol: Pups Save Puplantis" he did it underwater and boasting he is a mer-pup on a mission.
  • The Leader: Among the pups themselves.
  • Jet Pack: In "Air Pups," his flight pack is jet-propelled, but is more of a glider.
  • Meaningful Name: His name refers to a police chase.
    • And with his Super Speed in Mighty Pups, he's a high-speed Chase!
  • The Nose Knows: As to be expected of a police dog, Chase has an incredible sense of smell. As noted on the main page, it was to the point of being able to distinguish jellybean colors while blindfolded.
  • Not So Above It All: As noted, Chase tries to maintain a professional attitude while on missions. It doesn't always work out for him.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: He wears blue, while Skye wears pink.
  • Police are Useless: Naturally averted, although Chase oddly seems to be the only police official in Adventure Bay.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Played for Laughs when Chase was once seen wearing Skye's bathing cap, as well as admiring himself in a mirror with it.
  • Sick Episode: He had a cold in "Pups Save a Show".
  • Ship Tease: With Skye, whom he has a crush on-although it's uncertain if she feels the same way, or is even aware. Nevertheless, they still have moments, such as their Pup Pup Boogie game and once acting as Team Dad and Team Mom in organizing the pups. Whenever Skye seems to be in danger, Chase shows the most concern out of the rest of the pups, and is usually the most joyful when she turns out to be safe.
  • Sneeze of Doom: Chase is allergic to cat fur (which apparently includes all things feline since he sneezes when tracking tigers in one episode) and feathers, which can complicate missions where he has to help Cali (or any feline for that matter) or Chickaletta.
  • Super Speed: In the Mighty Pups special, he gains this power from the meteor.
  • Unwanted Assistance: Invoked in "Pups Save a Herd" when Chase wants to practice for a herding competition and tries to help others by herding. His efforts trip up the Porters' shipment of cakes, scare off the seagulls Turbot was counting and cause him to fall into the Bay, and lead Rocky to roll atop a bunch of tennis balls and get very wet.
  • With Catlike Tread: His early use of the spy gear usually resulted in him talking quite a bit while he was supposed to be stealthy. It gets especially humorous when he yells at a seagull for getting in the way when he was "trying to spy [t]here".
  • You Are in Command Now: In both "Pups Save Ryder" and the Mighty Pups special, Chase is forced to lead the team when Ryder is incapacitated.

    Rocky

Rocky is a mixed breed (possibly a Cattle Dog mix) pup that serves as the recycling specialist and mechanic of the group. He regularly is called upon to fix damaged materials, often by using various things he's collected in his truck. As long as it doesn't require him to get wet.

His home, Vehicle No. 05, is a combination forklift/recycling truck, which contains the many recyclables he's collected.

  • Adorkable: Rocky tends to be this due to his love of recycling and fear of water.
  • Butt-Monkey: At least where water is concerned. If there's something involving a lot of water around, then nine times out of ten, he's getting drenched.
  • Catchphrase: "Green means go!", "Don't lose it, reuse it!", and "Why trash it, when you can stash it?"
  • Ear Notch: His right ear has a small nick.
  • Emerald Power: His signature color is green.
  • Every Device Is a Swiss-Army Knife: Rocky's pack has the most tools out of the team's, containing a pincer, a screwdriver, a glue-applicator, and a tape dispenser among other things. It's even more notable in that the pack only has two mechanical arms that it's barely big enough to hold with the other hypothetical supplies.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Rocky has been shown implementing several devices out of the materials in his truck, such as a mini-catapult for launching streamers and a bellow-constructed trap set up to capture a "ghost".
  • Green Aesop: His character serves as an emphasis on eco-friendly acts and recycling.
  • Green Lantern Ring: In the Mighty Pups special, the meteor grants him the power to make green energy constructs, which he mostly utilizes in the form of giant tools.
  • Hammerspace: Let's just say that truck holds more than it looks like it should. This is most notable when it was able to hold Zuma's old surfboard. His pack has similar properties (see Every Device Is a Swiss-Army Knife).
  • Horny Vikings: His Halloween costume in the Ghost Ship episode, complete with mustache.
  • Irony:
    • Despite hating water, he's best friends with Marshall and Zuma, the water-oriented members of the group.
    • When he is briefly transformed into a Mer-Pup, he absolutely loves swimming in the water.
    • In season three, his truck gains the ability to change into a tugboat. The pup who hates water just got a lot closer to it.
    • Even more ironic; earlier in the show he was given a scuba pack similar to Zuma's just to help fixing the broken Diving Bell.
  • Jet Pack: In "Air Pups," he receives a version that allows him to hover and repair things mid-air.
  • Meaningful Name: His name comes from rocks, and he’s the eco pup.
  • Mr. Fixit: Rocky's general role in the series.
  • Running Gag: He's an aquaphobic dog who often is hit with water (sometimes from Marshall's water cannons) for a gag.
  • Sick Episode: He had a sore throat in "Parroting Pups".
  • The Smart Guy: Among the pups, due to his mechanical know-how.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Rocky immensely hates getting wet, and will avoid any contact with water if he can. The "Sea Patrol: Pups Save a Baby Octopus" special shows his dislike of water preventing him from even trying to complete his sea rescue training. But in the end, Rocky manages to put aside his fear to help save the day.

"Let's dive in!"

Zuma is a Chocolate Labrador that serves as the diver of the group. Any water mission is a breeze with Zuma's hovercraft and diving equipment (with a breathing apparatus shaped like a bone, natch). Generally mellow and good-natured, Zuma does what he can, dude.

His home, Vehicle No. 07, is a hovercraft. In Season 2, it also has a submarine mode.

  • Catchphrase: "Let's dive in!" and "Ready, set, get wet!"
  • Cool Boat:
    • Zuma has his hovercraft, which functions pretty well on land as it does on the water. And as of "Pups Save the Diving Bell", it can also transform into a mini-submarine.
    • In "Mission PAW: Pups Save the Royal Throne", Zuma gains a new "Mini-Sub" vehicle, able to convert from a land-based configuration to an aquatic one.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: Zuma talks like this in the US dub, due to Alex Thorne being unable to pronounce his R's. It's most notable when he addresses "Wyder" and "Wocky". This was eventually dropped after a voice actor change.
  • Helicopter Pack: His flight pack works on propellers rather than jets, and also allows him to fly underwater.
  • Making a Splash: In the Mighty Pups special, he gains the ability to spray water from his paws, and create a giant wave.
  • Meaningful Name: He’s named after a famous beach in Malibu.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: This trope is why Zuma initially has Elmuh Fudd Syndwome and also why it was dropped. Alex Thorne couldn't pronounce his R's properly so Zuma couldn't either; then when Carter took over his brother, he could pronounce his R's just fine so they decided to drop the trait over time.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: Non-video game example, as Zuma has demonstrated a decent lung capacity when he's not using his equipment (such as when he gave his oxygen mask to Wally to keep the walrus from drowning due to being trapped by a net). It's justified, given Zuma's water rescue training.
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: Zuma only is assigned to aquatic missions for the most part, meaning he is called into action the least amount of times. Fortunately, due to the setting being Adventure Bay, he does manage to get a few good missions in. He also makes decent back up in non-water missions where all that's needed is an extra set of paws.
  • Totally Radical: Zuma tends to refer to people as "dude".
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Averted, as Zuma is the only one out of the six pups who is not shown to be afraid of anything. This is most notably seen in the Face Your Fears episode, where he seemed to just be there for moral support.

Skye is a Cockapoo (Cocker Spaniel/Poodle mix) that serves as the aerial dog of the group. Quite energetic in her own right, Skye takes to the air in her helicopter, if not with her glider-pack. The PAW Patrol can be assured that she'll be their eyes in the sky.

As mentioned, her home, Vehicle No. 04, is a helicopter.

  • Action Girl: Well, she's a girl and she saves the day.
  • Blow You Away: In the Mighty Pups special, she gains the power of unassisted Flight and the ability to create whirlwinds.
  • Catchphrase: "Let's take to the sky!" and "This pup's gotta fly!" (usually accompanied by a backflip)
  • The Chick: Among the pups, usually providing aerial support.
  • Cool Bike: Gains a "Sky-Cycle" in "Mission PAW: Quest for the Crown", which can convert from a motorcycle to a flying hovercraft.
  • Dub Name Change: Stella, in the French dub.
  • Fangirl: Of pilot Ace Sorensen, as seen in "Pups Save an Ace"

  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: Flies in a silver helicopter (with pink highlights).
  • Goggles Do Something Unusual:
    • Her aviation goggles function as telescopic lenses, which is handy for surveillance.
    • The goggles that come with her Air Patrol flight suit are even more advanced.
  • Jet Pack:
    • A variation in that it's a glider pack equipped with twin mini-thrusters and retractable wings.
    • In "Air Pups," she receives an improved version with supersonic jets.

  • Purple Eyes: A mix of purple and dark pink, to be precise.
  • Ship Tease: Despite not seeming to even be aware of Chase's feelings, Skye did once regard Chase as being sweet for being concerned about her. They've also clicked particularly well on occasion, such as one instance where the two acted as Team Dad and Team Mom in getting the other pups going. Near the end of "Pups Save Friendship Day," Skye leans her head tenderly against Chase's chest, possibly hinting at her having deeper feelings for him.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She is the sole female member of the group, until the introduction of Everest in Season 2.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: Skye is the air force member of the group.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Skye's the girly girl to Everest's tomboy.

Voiced in Korean by: Sa Seong-woong

Cap'n Turbot is the PAW Patrol's most frequent caller and best human friend. He is Adventure Bay's marine biologist and watchman, who provides Ryder and the pups with information on the bay's wildlife. He serves as a member of the PAW Patrol team in the Merpup-themed specials.

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: He refers to various creatures and scenarios he comes across in this manner. In fact, he speaks alliteratively so much that Ryder must "translate" for the pups on occasion.
  • Black Bead Eyes: Unlike the other humans, he has dots for eyes.
  • Blind Without 'Em: He's prone to wandering around aimlessly when he loses his glasses.
  • Butt-Monkey: He is sometimes a human version of Marshall.
  • The Captain: As his name implies, he's a captain.
  • Catchphrase: His call-outs are "Turbot tackles trout!" and "This Cap'n can do!"
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Cap'n Turbot can be a bit out of it, at times, mostly due to being easily excitable.
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: He tends to make a number of seafood dishes that aren't very appealing to anyone other than himself (and sometimes Wally), such as squid jerky and fish cakes. He also baked a tray of cookies covered in jellyfish jam that, given the others' reactions to it, probably isn't as tasty as jellyfish jelly.
  • Designated Victim: He earned the title of the PAW Patrol's most frequent caller because his expeditions land him in trouble on a routine basis. It's lampshaded when Ryder's monitor for displaying mission objectives has a special icon of Cap'n Turbot running around in circles and yelling, "Help! Help! Help!" (although this is phased out after season one).
  • Extreme Omnivore: Well, he does like eating a number of seafood products most people wouldn't eat. As well as doggie treats.
  • Everything's Squishier with Cephalopods: Cap'n Turbot has a fondness for squids (he dresses up as one in the Halloween episode and eats squid jerky a lot).
  • Genius Ditz: Cap'n Turbot is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to marine biology, but not when the topic is social skills.
  • Got Me Doing It: Listening to Francois' French accent occasionally causes the Cap'n to pronounce "the" as "ze."
  • Interspecies Friendship: He is good friends with Wally, his pet walrus who lives in the water around Seal Island.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": He pronounces his surname as "Ter-bit". However, in "Pups Save the Turbots", Francois claims that it's actually pronounced "Ter-bo".
  • Last-Name Basis: He's rarely referred to by his first name. As revealed in "Pups Save the Turbots", his first name is Horatio.
  • Nerd Glasses: He wears thick square glasses and he definitely qualifies as nerdy.
  • Nice Hat: A toboggan hat.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: He's a marine biologist, but in "Pups Bark with Dinosaurs" and "Pups Save a Big Bone," he's also a paleontologist. In "Pups Save a Lucky Collar," the Cap'n is shown conducting owl research, so apparently he's a biologist of all sorts.
  • Omniglot: Not only Speaks Fluent Animal, but he is also able to understand alien, and even alien rock.
  • Promoted to Opening Titles: Cap'n Turbot gets a part in the updated intro for season three, along with Everest and the PAW Patroller. His boat (the Flounder) is present in both the original theme song and the newer one.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Cap'n Turbot is intellectual and calm (blue), contrasting with Francois' enthusiastic and extroverted (red) personality.
  • Silly Walk: His normal walk is very clunky and awkward.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: He knows a lot about ocean animals, and he wears glasses.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: He has learned to speak quite a few different animal languages, such as narwhal, whale, and merpup.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Cap'n Turbot often snacks on squid jerky, and is usually the only one who wants any.

    Robo-Dog 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0fffb714c37b2576d43b99a9d715f073.png

A Robot Dog invented by Ryder. He first appeared in "Pups Save Ryder's Robot" and makes a few minor appearances afterwards, most often as the driver of Vehicle No. 08, the PAW Patroller, and also Vehicle No. 10, the Air Patroller.

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot:
    • When his antennae was damaged, Robo-Dog ran amok through Adventure Bay.
    • When Alex tried to fix him in "Pups In a Fix," he accidentally caused Robo-Dog to go on a "fixing" spree across town, "improving" things far beyond what was necessary, such as causing the Lookout's lift to launch itself into the air.
  • Ascended Extra: He gets a little more focus during season three, even being given his own Pup Pack.
  • The Driver: Of the PAW Patroller, and later, the Air Patroller, the Mission: PAW Cruiser, and the Sea Patroller and Sub Patroller.
  • Every Device Is a Swiss-Army Knife: In "Pups In a Fix," he is given a Pup Pack of his own, which serves a similar function to Rocky's, being packed with tools for repairing things.
  • Flight: Due to jet boosters on his paws.
  • Robot Buddy: As his name indicates.
  • Robot Dog: Duh.
  • Tunnel King: One fast digger.
  • The Voiceless: He doesn't speak, instead just barking in a synthesized tone.

Everest is a Siberian Husky pup who handles snow/mountain rescues and was introduced in the Season 2 episode, "The New Pup". She joins the PAW Patrol after meeting up with them when they take up their operations on the road.

Her PAW Patrol house, Vehicle No. 09, is located at Jake's cabin and is a snowplow with a robotic grab arm.

  • Action Girl: Like Skye, she's a girl and she is a competent member of the PAW Patrol.

  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: She has slightly purple fur.
  • An Ice Person: In the Mighty Pups special, she gains the power of ice breath.

  • Catchphrase: "Ice or snow, I'm ready to go!" and "Off the trail, Everest won't fail!"
  • Everything's Better with Penguins: Until Jake came along, Everest's only friends and source of company were the local penguins.
  • Fight Fire with Fire: In "Mighty Pups: Super Paws: Pups Stop Harold's Big Freeze", she stops Harold's freezing machine by freezing it.
  • Genki Girl: She is a rather hyperactive and friendly pup, to say the least.
  • Hell Is That Noise: A Lighter and Softer variant in-verse, as her tummy rumblings are mistaken for bear growls and noises of the like.
  • Interspecies Friendship: Everest particularly bonded with Jake after she saved him from falling off a snowy cliff.
  • Jet Pack: In "Pups Save a Frozen Campout", Everest gets her own Air Patrol jetpack, helping out on a rescue mission to a snow-covered island.
  • Meaningful Name: Named after the largest, extremely cold mountain, and she handles snow/mountain rescues.
  • Outdoorsy Gal: She loves the outdoors and everything nature-related.
  • Promoted to Opening Titles: She briefly appears in the season three intro alongside the other pups.
  • Ship Tease: Often gets this with Marshall.
  • Sixth Ranger: Like Zuma, Everest is a specialist pup who is only called out for particular missions - in her case, those that involve snow or additional heavy lifting.
  • Tomboy: Is particularly tomboyish.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Everest is Tomboy to Skye's Girly Girl.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: While a rough and tumble girl who loves things like the outdoors and sports, Everest also likes things like dress up and adorable bunnies.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She loves anything liver-flavored, as well as liver itself.

Voiced in French by: Nathalie Homs
Voiced in Spanish by: Yannina Quiroz (Latin America/first voice), Maureen Herman (Latin America/second voice)
Voiced in Korean by: Saehae Kim
Voiced in Japanese by: Masako Katsuki

As her title says, Mayor Goodway is the mayor of Adventure Bay who frequently calls upon the PAW Patrol for help. Usually, it's for issues involving her pet chicken, Chickaletta.

  • Ambiguously Brown: It's not clear what race Goodway is supposed to be. Her niece and nephew are even more ambiguous, maybe outright biracial.
  • Beauty Mark: Just look at her image and you'll see it.
  • Chaste Toons: Mayor Goodway has a niece and nephew, but no children of her own. Unless you count Chickaletta, whom she dotes upon.
  • Early Installment Character-Design Difference: She wore teal shoes and a white blouse in Season One. In later seasons, she wears red shoes and a pink blouse.
  • Fangirl: Of Luke Stars.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Well, she wears a purple skirt...but we wouldn't exactly call her graceful.
  • Large Ham: She tends to get a wee bit melodramatic when she needs help. Or whenever she speaks, really.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name comes from the term "in a good way", citing that her intentions are always good.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite being overly dramatic, Goodway is a respectful mayor, who only wants what's best for her city.
  • Serious Business: In her distress calls, Mayor Goodway tends to regard every issue, whether minor (such as getting a bat out of the city hall belfry) or major (such as getting stuck out in the Bay on two occasions), with an overly dramatic flair. She also tends to get this way about Chickaletta, often freaking out more than the chicken does.
  • True Blue Femininity: Wears a blue cardigan.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her voice has got more dramatic as the series went on.

    Francois 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/paw_patrol_francois_turbot_4.png
Voiced in English by: Peter Cugno
Voiced in French by: Donald Reignoux

Cap'n Turbot's cousin and sidekick who works as a zoologist and nature photographer. He lives with the Cap'n in the Seal Island lighthouse and has a French accent.

  • Attention Whore: He loves attention, no matter how he gets it.
  • Best Out of Infinity: In "Sea Patrol: Pups Save a Frozen Flounder", he keeps challenging Horatio to thumb wrestling matching matches this way, leading up to the hundreds.
  • Black Bead Eyes: Has these along with his cousin.
  • Camera Fiend: He is seen more often with his "special underwater high-def, hi-fi, Wi-Fi camera" than not.
  • Competition Freak: Several episodes show him getting into competitions with his cousin. In "Sea Patrol: Pups Save a Frozen Flounder", he insisted on repeated thumb wrestling matches, despite the fact that Horatio had won every single one.
  • Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Skye seems to think so. Whenever Francois needs rescuing, she can be heard saying "Poor Francois!" and she fawns over him in "Pups Save the Turbots."
  • French Jerk: He has a habit of trying to claim all the credit for any discoveries he and his cousin make together. He also often talks down to the Cap'n, thinking he is the superior cousin, and often tries to best him in competition.
  • Giftedly Bad: He hasn't taken a single good photograph, but considers photography his favourite hobby.
  • Glory Hound: He's eager to become famous, usually by taking pictures of rare and/or undiscovered creatures.
  • How Do You Say: In "Pups Save the Critters", he stumbles when trying to remember an English word. "I am...how you say it...good?"
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Has a tendency to recklessly rush into things.
  • Lennon Specs: Francois wears a pair of perfectly round, purple-tinted glasses.
  • Nature Lover: He gets carried away with trying to locate rare creatures (including elephants, giant sea slugs, and blue-footed booby birds).
  • Narcissist: A textbook example. Says things like "I am amazing, if I do say so myself," and "I was a brilliant young zoologist...I am such a genius."
  • Never My Fault: In "Sea Patrol: Pups Save a Frozen Flounder", his insistence on repeated thumb wrestling matches with his cousin leads to the Flounder getting trapped in frozen waters. When the PAW Patrol arrives on the scene, he makes a point of announcing that it wasn't his fault.
  • Nice Hat: A beret.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Francois is an enthusiastic extrovert (red), contrasting with Cap'n Turbot's more intellectual and calm (blue) personality.
  • Silly Walk: His run is just as awkward and clunky as Cap'n Turbot's.
  • Skewed Priorities: In "Sea Patrol: Pups Save the Pier", he was more concerned with saving his statue of himself than getting off the unstable pier.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: He's a zoologist who wears a pair of Lennon Specs.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Francois' roles were initially lesser compared to Cap'n Turbot's, but by season four, he anchors his own episodes. Take "Pups Save Francois the Penguin" for example, in which Francois is the central focus and the Cap'n is only mentioned.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: To the Cap'n.
  • Surprisingly Good Foreign Language: Pronounces French words and phrases with surprising accuracy.
  • You Put the "X" in "XY": According to Mayor Goodway in "Pups Save a Tightrope Walker," "Francois puts the adventure in Adventure Bay!"

    Mayor Humdinger 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mayorhumdinger.png
Voiced in English by: Ron Pardo
Voiced in French by: Philippe Roullier

The troublemaking mayor of Foggy Bottom. He often takes part in contests with Mayor Goodway.

  • 0% Approval Rating: The citizens of Adventure Bay are angry when he is around, especially when he tries to run a city normally ran by a good mayor who has straighter morals than him.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Plays it straight. When he managed to kidnap at least one Paw Patrol member, or steal an artifact, his plans always backfires which results to him getting in trouble, Saved by the heroes and received punishment for his actions.
  • Chaste Toons: He has a nephew, Harold.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: He commonly resorts to cheating to win, only to have the PAW Patrol dismantle his efforts, or for those efforts to backfire on him.
  • Complexity Addiction: In "Pups Save the PAW Patroller". After his own television breaks, he decides to steal the PAW Patroller so he can watch his favorite show on its screen. After the PAW Patrol reclaims the PAW Patroller, Ryder points out that Humdinger should have just bought a new television instead.
  • Cool Hat: In season 1, he wore an aviator's cap. From season 2 onward, he took to wearing a purple top hat.
  • Dastardly Whiplash: He may not be all in black, but the top hat, the mustache, and the suit all qualify.
  • Did Not Think This Through:
    • In "Pups Take The Cake", he entered the exact same kind of cake in the baking contest as he did last year, saying "Once a winner, always a winner", which led to it being beaten by the pup's lookout cake.
    • In "Pups Save a Ferris Wheel", he tried to steal a Ferris wheel from Adventure Bay and roll it back to Foggy Bottom... only to discover he had no way of controlling where the wheel went.
    • In Pups Save Monkey-Dinger", he decided to put on the mystical monkey mask, never stopping to think what exactly the "mystical monkey power" would do to him.
    • "Ultimate Rescue: Pups Save a Movie Monster": He stole the remote to Gigantasaur, despite not knowing how it worked. And when that failed, he tried to force the machine to Foggy Bottom by grabbing onto its tail, leading him to being dragged around by it.
  • Entertainingly Wrong: In the Mighty Pups special, he fully believed travelling into space would grant him ownership of it.
  • Entitled Bastard:
    • In "Pups Save a Gold Rush", he attempted to steal of Mayor Goodway's uncle Otis's gold so he could make a statue of himself, believing he "deserved" to be a statue.
    • "Ultimate Rescue: Pups Save a Movie Monster": Even after all the trouble he caused, he claimed "if anyone deserves popcorn, it's me!"
    • In "Mighty Pups: Super Paws: Pups Stop Harold's Big Freeze". Even after Harold betrays him and takes the meteor fragment for himself, Humdinger immediately believes the machine Harold is putting together with his restored powers is a "mayormobile" for him.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: When the PAW Patrol tried to stop him from stealing the golden bones in "Ultimate Rescue: Pups and the Hidden Golden Bones", he believed they just wanted the bones for themselves, and thought the claim of the chamber collapsing was a "likely story".
  • Evil Is Petty: In "Pups Save the Carnival", he was caught cheating at one of the carnival games, and banned from it. His response was to have the Kitten Catastrophe Crew sabotage the whole carnival and steal all the prizes.
  • Evil Uncle: Serves as this to Harold. Although Harold often proves himself to be worse than he is (and more competent, to boot).
  • Fat Bastard: He's a bit fat, and he's villainous.
  • Flanderization: He started out as simply The Rival to Mayor Goodway. But over time, he has become a full-fledged Dastardly Whiplash-style villain, with his plans descending into petty and childish goals, such as stealing a pinata, or entering a pie swap just so he can steal them all.
  • Freudian Excuse: His desire to make Adventure Bay look bad and attempts to bring glory to Foggy Bottom is no doubt due to what a dingy, downcast place his town is.
  • Gave Up Too Soon: In "Mighty Pups: Super Paws: When Super Kitties Attack", Humdinger takes time out of his and Harold's attempt to find another piece of the meteor to take a nap. Moments after he leaves, Harold finds the meteor piece, allowing him to enact his own plans.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Mayor Humdinger promised to be good in the friendship day episode, but later went back to his evil ways in his next appearance.
  • Hypocrite:
    • In "Pups Save the Chili Cook-Off", he has the nerve to accuse Adventure Bay of cheating when the pups' chili wins the cook-off, despite the fact that he had been cheating the entire episode (and is subsequently exposed as having used store-bought chili in his recipe).
    • In "Pups Save an Underground Chicken", he is punished for trying to steal the golden Chickaletta statue by being forced to clean it. He loudly complains, stating that he shouldn't be doing it because he's a mayor. This in spite of the fact that he hardly ever acts like a real mayor (especially since mayors don't steal from other mayors).
  • Ignored Epiphany: In "Pups Save Friendship Day", Mayor Goodway told him he could have more friends if he just treated people more nicely, and he seems to go along with it, joining in on the Friendship Day celebrations. But, as later episodes show, this didn't take.
  • Implausible Deniability:
    • In "Pup-Fu", he insists he had absolutely nothing to do with the theft of Yumi's scroll. He's facing three members of the PAW Patrol with strong circumstantial evidence, and absolutely none of them believe a word he says.
    • In "Pups Save the Cat Show", he insists that his entry into the show, Meow-Meow, is not a robot, even though Meow-Meow is currently flying above the show on its rocket paws.
  • I Reject Your Reality: In "Ultimate Rescue: Pups Save a Movie Monster". Despite admitting to himself the multiple reasons why Foggy Bottom isn't the best place to film a movie, he still tried to get Gigantasaur to go there in hopes of forcing the production to move there as well.
  • It's All About Me: He doesn't care who his plans hurt, as long as he gets what he wants. This was best shown in "Pups Save a Duck Pond", where he drained the titular duck pond, leaving the ducks without a home, to fill his own private swimming pool.
  • Karma Houdini: He's committed more than enough crimes to get sent to jail, but then the show would be over.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He still manages to experience this from time to time, such as in "Ultimate Rescue: Pups and the Hidden Golden Bones"; after his attempts to steal the bones almost caused adventure Bay to sink into the ground, the same bones are used to prop up the area above their hidden chamber. Since trying to steal them would trigger a collapse right above him, Humdinger has no choice but to leave them there.
  • Lethally Stupid: Never learns his lesson, and is always creating havoc in Adventure Bay rather than doing his job as an elected official. One has to wonder just how he stays in office after all the illegal acts he's committed.
  • Manchild: In later seasons, he is shown doing such things as trying to steal toy prizes from a carnival, or even snatching all the candy from trick-or-treating kids on Halloween.
  • Mayor of a Ghost Town: Implied to be this in "Ultimate Rescue: Pups Save a Movie Monster", where he admits to himself that Foggy Bottom doesn't have a lot of people.
  • Meaningful Name: The term "Humdinger" means "something extraordinary or remarkable of its kind".
  • Moral Myopia:
    • He regularly cheats and resorts to underhanded deeds, but treats it like an outrage if he gets punished for it, and will even claim that it's "not fair".
    • In "Pups Save Thanksgiving", he believes himself to be the nicest person he knows, in spite of all his wicked deeds.
  • Narcissist:
    • In "Pups Save Friendship Day", he thought a cake shaped like himself was the best gift ever, even thinking it was "too beautiful" to eat.
    • In "Pups Save a Good Mayor", he takes over Adventure Bay in Mayor Goodway's absence, forcing everyone to dress like him and eat his favorite food. He also puts up a giant poster of himself.
    • In "Pups Save Heady Humdinger", he has his kittens carve his face into a mountainside.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a top hat all the time.
  • One-Hour Work Week: While Goodway is often seen doing her job, Humdinger has a lot of time to hang around Adventure Bay messing with Goodway. It probably helps that we never, ever see any other residents. Mayor Goodway even lampshades the fact that he's always snooping around Adventure Bay in "Ultimate Rescue: Pups Save the Royal Kitties".
  • Playing Sick: In "Pups Save a Hum-Mover", he fakes a broken foot to get out of losing a race, then uses the sympathy from his "injury" to get free things from the people of Adventure Bay.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Wears a purple getup and is the mayor of Foggy Bottom.
  • Reality Ensues: In "Pups Save a Hum-Mover", he cheats like usual during his race with Mayor Goodway, gaining the lead. But since he was relying on cheating to win, he never really bothered to train, and soon becomes exhausted, allowing Goodway to catch up to, and even pass him.
  • The Rival: To Mayor Goodway.
  • Smug Snake: To mustache-twirling levels.
  • Sore Loser: Will either storm off, or say that Foggy Bottom will win next time.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Gradually became this, as he is often the source of conflict for the PAW Patrol.
  • Stupid Evil: He repeatedly tries to cause trouble around Adventure Bay, oblivious to the fact that the PAW Patrol will always stop him. In "Pups Save a Ferris Wheel", he gloated to himself over lying to the PAW Patrol about not performing any more wicked deeds - even though those deeds never succeed.
  • Supervillain Lair: He has a secret hideout in a cave outside Foggy Bottom.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In season one, he was a pompous gloater, but he at least played by the rules. From season two onwards, he is often seen resorting to cheating, and even sabotaging his competition in order to win.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Humdinger has demonstrated that, upon being rescued by the PAW Patrol from something like falling to his death, he'll go right back to trying to screw them over.
  • Ultimate Job Security: How he has managed to keep his position, after all the illegal things he has done (he even has what seems to be an evil lair), is a mystery.
  • Unsportsmanlike Gloating: Loves to rub his past victories in Mayor Goodway's face.
  • Villain Decay: Has become more incompetent as time goes by, with his own cheating ways often backfiring on him. "The Pups' Winter Wonder Show" even showed his scheme of the day failing without the PAW Patrol having to intervene.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Has kidnapped the pups on several occasions and once caused active injuries to two of them while cheating at basketball. And then there's his assistance in Ryder's kidnapping in the first "Mighty Pups".

  • Tagalong Kid: On occasions, most notably in the oddly titled "Pups Save Alex", where he provided the means to get Cali off the roof of Farmer Yumi's silo.

"That's Daring Danny X!"
Voiced by: Daniel DeSanto (Season 3-4, "Pups Save An Extreme Lunch"), Jonathan Malen (Season 5-6)
A boy introduced in mid-Season 3. He was inspired to become a daredevil after watching Ryder and the PAW Patrol. His stunts often cause him to get into trouble.

  • Accidental Hero: In "Ultimate Rescue: Pups Save a Movie Monster", he followed the pups around as they saved the day, and got enough footage to complete the film. However, he had no idea his camera was turned on, thus this trope occurs.
  • Blush Sticker: Like other human children, he has rosy cheeks.
  • Character Development: In his most recent appearances, he actually doesn't do anything stupid and instead is engaged in safer activities that just happen to go wrong.
  • Childish Tooth Gap: Danny has a noticeable gap in his teeth.
  • Cool Helmet: He usually wears one while doing his stunts.
  • Early Installment Character-Design Difference: When he first appeared, he wore an outfit consisting of a white-and-green raglan and jeans.
  • Fearless Fool: At first. But when a stunt goes wrong, he's quick to call out for help.
  • Fiery Redhead: While he's not hot-tempered, he is easily excited and definitely has energy to spare.
  • Hidden Depths: In "Pups and the Mystery of the Driverless Snow Cat", he's shown to have an interest in engineering.
  • Innocently Insensitive: He doesn't mean any ill...but he's still pretty disobedient and reckless.
  • Insistent Terminology: He insists on being called "Daring Danny X" by everyone.
  • Karmic Nod: In "Pups Save A Freighter", after being splashed by a whale, he admits that he probably deserved it.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Always throwing himself into dangerous situations. However, he seems to have mellowed out in Season 5 and 6.
  • Lethally Stupid:
    • He is determined to attempt all sorts of dangerous stunts, even ignoring the warnings of others to do so.
    • When he decides to start delivering sports equipment, he accidentally mixes turtle eggs in with golf balls. They hatch while he's driving, then a hatchling falls onto his helmet visor and blocks his vision. Does he stop and remove it? No, he just tries to blow it off.
  • The Load: Replaced Alex for this role. Danny's reckless stunts always land him in trouble and require the PAW Patrol to save him. Slowly becoming averted though.
  • Noodle People: Downplayed; he's pretty lanky, but not to the point where it looks unnatural.
  • Out of Character: For some reason, in "Pups Save a Freighter", he doesn't insist on being called by his nickname.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: In "Pups and the Mystery of the Driverless Snow Cat", where his remote control drone disrupts the signal of Everest's snow cat, causing it to go haywire.
  • Vague Age: While he looks about the same age as Ryder (maybe a little older), he sounds like a teen. However, Dawson Casting may be the cause of this.
  • Verbal Tic: He says the word "extreme" a lot.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Danny is a kid, yet he sounds like an adult.
  • Vocal Evolution: In Seasons 3-4, his voice was very deep and lightly raspy. In Seasons 5-6, his voice is slightly higher and more nasal.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: A stuntman in the making...who gets seasick.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: In "Pups Bear-ly Save Danny", it's revealed he is terrified of bears.

  • Nice Guy: Is incredibly polite and kind, to the point that Mayor Goodway frankly declares that he'd never miss tea with the princess because "he's too polite" to refuse an invitation with no explanation.

  • Friend to All Living Things: "Mission PAW: Pups Save the Princess' Pals" shows that she has an entire section of her estate dedicated to taking care of sick and injured animals.
  • High Class Gloves: She's a princess, and wears a pair of white gloves.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: She does get better but why anyone would fall for Sweetie's Bitch in Sheep's Clothing routine repeatedly is a question of the ages.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She is clearly fascinated by the supposed haunting of the castle in "Mission PAW: Royally Spooked", although she does admit to being a little creeped out when she sees one of the suits of armor moving by itself.
  • Princess: Well, obviously.
  • Princess Classic: She fits this to a T, as she is innocent and kind to all.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Very kind and polite, despite being a princess.

  • Fiery Redhead: Has red hair, and is very passionate about his piracy.
  • Greed: Once he sees something, he decides he needs it, even if he already has several of the item in question.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Come on; no one who takes care of (and steals to provide for) a dog can be 100% evil.
  • Large Ham: Yells a lot of his lines, often slips into pirate-speak, gets really excited over small things...yep, definitely fits the bill.
  • Meaningful Name: A pirate with a surname based on "swashbuckler". However, he normally is referred to as a buccaneer.
  • Moral Myopia: In "Sea Patrol: Pups Save a Pirated Sea Patroller", he reacts to Ryder and the pups tricking him into abandoning the Sea Patroller in favor of a seemingly better-looking ship (actually a shadow) by saying it's "not fair". Ryder is quick to point out his hypocrisy.

  • Sailor's Ponytail: A pirate with a ponytail.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Has red hair and green eyes, and is the antagonist of the Sea Patrol episodes.

  • Talk Like a Pirate: Fitting his status as a pirate.
    Sid: Arrr! Why are we moving slowly?

  • Vague Age: Despite looking like a teen, the wiki lists him as an adult.
  • Villain Song: He has one in "Sea Patrol: Pups Save Puplantis": "Sid the Pirate".

    Chickaletta 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/paw_patrol_chickaletta.jpg

Chickaletta is Mayor Goodway's pet chicken, and often the reason for her distress calls.

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In "Mighty Pups: Super Paws: Pups Save a Giant Chicken", exposure to the superpower-granting meteor causes Chickaletta to grow to giant size.

  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: In "Pups and the Ghost Pirate", she and Cali run about, unwittingly causing the pirate ship to drift off with some of the cast trapped on it.

Voiced by: Julie Lemieux

Cali is Katie's pet cat who often ends up in predicaments.

  • Big Eater: One episode established her as having a big appetite.
  • Butt-Monkey: She ends up becoming one of these, to a degree, because of the situations she ends up in. Although she often brings it on herself.
  • Cats Are Mean: Averted, as she gets along with the pups. Although she can be quite cranky.
  • Designated Victim: She tends to find herself in trouble on a regular basis, often needing rescue from the PAW Patrol as a result.
  • Didn't Think This Through: To be fair, she's a non-anthropomorphized cat. But on the other hand, she does have a habit of just going after something she wants (such as a tuna sandwich in a backpack hooked on a caboose railing), and getting into trouble because she doesn't think things through.
  • Silent Snarker: Often shows her annoyance or exasperation by rolling her eyes.
  • Stock Animal Name: Played With somewhat. While Cali is an alternate spelling of the very popular Callie, the latter is primarily used for calico/tortoiseshell cats rather than gray/white cats like Cali.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: In "Pups and the Ghost Pirate", she and Chickaletta run about, unwittingly causing the pirate ship to drift off with some of the cast trapped on it.

  • Companion Cube: Her toy frog, Busby, whom she sometimes talks to as if it is alive.
  • Didn't Think This Through: In "Mission PAW: Quest for the Crown", Sweetie attempts to escape by air in her hovercraft, but is chased by Skye. In an attempt to lose Skye, she performs a barrel roll, causing the crown of Barkingburg to fall off her head. Sweetie then unclips her seatbelt, dropping out of the hovercraft in an attempt to grab the crown. She immediately lampshades her poor decision by yelling "That was a bad idea!"
  • Does Not Like Spam: "Mission PAW: Pups Save the Princess' Pals" reveals that she can't stand regular puppy food.
  • Dub Name Change: An odd version in the French dub; the dialogue calls her Vicky, but the subtitles call her Monange.

  • Spoiled Brat: After briefly being allowed to wear the crown, she orders a servant to bring her a hundred hamburgers, with the intention of taking a single bite out of each one.
    Sweetie (to servant): You there! Get me a hamburger! No; a hundred hamburgers! I'm going to take a bite out of every one of them! Fun!
  • Token Heroic Orc: Inverted. She is the first pup to play a villainous role on the show.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: She needed to be saved by the PAW Patrol in the first two Mission PAW episodes, but doesn't show any gratitude in either case.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Once she frames Chase, she makes herself look like a hero by "recovering" the crown from him, and for a brief time is made the Queen of Barkingburg (until the PAW Patrol expose her lies).

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_cat_show_7.jpg
A sextet of kittens in similar gear to the PAW Patrol, Mayor Humdinger has sometimes used them to sabotage competitions with Mayor Goodway.

  • Cats Are Mean: Depending on the Writer. While they are loyal to Humdinger, their first appearance had them show remorse and undo the damage they did. Their next appearance, however, has them right back to sabotaging things with glee.
  • Cats Hate Water: Clearly averted in the case of Zuma's counterpart.
  • Dirty Coward: In "Pup Fu," they all ganged up on Marshall, but ran away when the rest of the pups came to back him up.
  • Evil Counterpart: Well, not necessarily evil, but they are effectively an antithesis to the PAW Patrol, being a group that ruins, damages, and sabotages things on the orders issued out by their human organizer. In addition, none of them can talk, instead meowing like real cats.
  • No Name Given: They are never given names on screen. If an episode summary mentions one of them (like Pups Save a Flying Kitty"), they refer to them by the PAW Patrol member they resemble (like "Skye kitty").
  • The Psycho Rangers: Their main role in the series, right down to wearing the same colors, uniforms, and equipment as the PAW Patrol, and having a kitten's paw in place of the usual pup paw insignia.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Like their owner, they rarely show any gratitude when the PAW Patrol saves them.

A robot cat created by Mayor Humdinger to be his entry for the cat show in "Pups Save the Cat Show".

  • Evil Counterpart: Could be seen as one to Robo-Dog, seeing as she is an additional, robotic member of the Kitten Catastrophe Crew.
  • Flight: Like Robo-Dog, she has jet boosters in her paws that allow her to do this.
  • Robot Me: Her appearance is based on Cali's.

    Royal Kittens (Henry and Elizabeth)

Two kittens owned by the Princess of Barkingburg.

  • Reused Character Design: They both have a modified version of Cali's character model.
  • Sixth Ranger: Mayor Humdinger tries to make them this to his Kitten Catastrophe Crew in "Ultimate Rescue: Pups Save the Royal Kitties", even dressing them up in versions of Everest and Tracker's outfits.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Elizabeth wears a bow on the top of her head, while Henry wears a bow tie.
  • Unwitting Pawn: In "Mission PAW: Quest for the Crown", Sweetie used a toy mouse to get them to run past Chase, setting off his allergies and giving Sweetie the distraction she needed to steal the crown of Barkingburg.
