This page is for listing the tropes related to characters who are found in The Smurfs.


The 100 Smurfs

Papa Smurf

File:PapaSmurf 4648.gif

The leader and father figure of the Smurfs. Voiced by Don Messick in the cartoon show, and by Jonathan Winters in the live-action movie.

== Alchemist Smurf ==

File:AlchemistSmurf 8084.jpg

Wants very much to be an alchemist/wizard, like Papa Smurf, but lacks skills and experience, causing his experiments to be total failures. Appears only in the comic books; in the cartoon show the role was played by Clumsy Smurf.

  • Baleful Polymorph: The result of his biggest experiment; he turned himself into a strange dragon-like creature and needed help to change back.
  • Professor Guinea Pig: To be fair, he tried to test the formula on other Smurfs, but everyone refused.

Archeologist Smurf

File:Archeologistsmurf 4423.jpg

A Smurf with a passion for archeology, who likes to do excavations and dig for old treasures. He can be recognized on his Smurf-cap-shaped helmet, and a good friend of Miner Smurf -- probably because they both spend much time digging underground. Appears only in the comic books.

Architect Smurf

The village architect, who designs all the buildings in the village. He sometimes gets a little frustrated that the other Smurfs keep preferring the old, classic designs to their houses and are seldom interested in his new and exciting ideas for buildings.

Baker Smurf

File:BakerSmurf 3743.jpg

A Smurf who bakes bread, cakes and pies, and takes great pleasure in his work. Appears only in the comic books and the live-action movie, where he is voiced by B.J. Novack; in the cartoon his role is taken by Greedy Smurf.

  • Name's the Same: Chef Smurf was known as Baker Smurf sometimes, until "the Finance Smurf" when this bread-baking Smurf appeared as a separate character with a different hat.

Barber Smurf

File:BarberSmurf 2994.jpg

The village barber and hair stylist. Doesn't see a lot of work because only a few Smurfs actually have hair, but when he does work, he does so with great enthusiasm, chatting and singing to his customers in a vague Italian accent.

Brainy Smurf

File:BrainySmurf 4459.gif

The village intellectual and Papa Smurf's laboratory assistant. Voiced by Danny Goldman in the cartoon show, and by Fred Armisen in the live-action movie.

Carpenter Smurf

File:CarpenterSmurf 9408.jpg

Appearing only in the comic, and only in minor roles in two stories, this Smurf provides wood for constructions (as opposed to Lumberjack Smurf, who provides firewood), and also makes furniture. He doesn't appear in the cartoon, as the "carpentry" part of his job is provided by Handy Smurf and the "wood providing" part by Timber Smurf.

Chef Smurf/Cook Smurf

File:CookSmurf 6027.jpg

The village chef. Appears in the comic books and live-action movie, while the Animated Adaptation merges this character with Greedy's.

  • Name's the Same: He was sometimes known as Baker Smurf in earlier comics, but later comics, as well as the live-action movies, show Chef Smurf and Baker Smurf to be two different characters.
  • Supreme Chef: He really enjoys making exquisite and refined foods, and at one points even kicks Bigmouth for eating his food too fast without giving himself time to enjoy it.
  • Team Chef: As the only chef in Smurf Village, at least until Baker is established as a separate Smurf, he becomes this.

Clumsy Smurf/Dopey Smurf/Dimwitty Smurf

File:Clumsy Smurf 3228.png

His name defines his character, plus he's not very bright. Voiced by Bill Callaway in the cartoon show and Anton Yelchin in the live-action movie.

  • Ascended Extra: He's a minor character in the original comics, his appearances usually based around being told to fetch or do something and messing it up, but he's very much a major character in the cartoon, and ends up as the hero of the live-action movie.
  • Bandage Mummy: In The Smurfs and the Magic Flute.
  • Catch Phrase: "Gosh!" and "Golly!"
  • Comically Missing the Point: In the comics, he has a trend for this, specially via bringing an item totally unrelated to what he has been asked to get.
  • Composite Character: The cartoon Clumsy combines traits of Clumsy and Dopey/Dimwitty Smurf from the comics, as well as playing the role of Alchemist Smurf in one episode.
  • The Ditz: Very much so.
  • The Klutz: It's in his name.
  • Nice Guy: You couldn't ask for a sweeter-natured Smurf; sometimes he borders on Dumb Is Good.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Type 1, with Brainy. Clumsy is the only Smurf who genuinely admires Brainy and dotes on him, usually to Brainy's annoyance.

Cobbler Smurf

File:CobblerSmurf 1243.png

A Smurf who likes to make shoes, but has very few jobs because Smurfs tend to have their shoes made by Tailor Smurf as an extension of their pants. His only regular customer is Smurfette, who does wear shoes. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation, where he was voiced by Hamilton Camp.

Complimentary Smurf

Does not actually appear on-screen in any incarnation, but is mentioned by Brainy in the live-action movie as a Smurf who "always has such nice things to say."

Crazy Smurf

Easily identified by the fact that his hat is on backwards, this Smurf acts as the village siren/alarm when danger approaches. He appears in the live-action movie only, voiced by John Kassir.

Dabbler Smurf

A Smurf constantly seeking his true calling in life. He tries his hand at everything, but seldom, if ever, finishes what he starts because by the time he's got going, he'll think of something else he'd rather try.

Doctor Smurf

File:DoctorSmurf 9025.jpg

A Smurf who fancies himself a doctor, but his superficial knowledge of medicine makes his treatments lackluster at best and harmful at worst. Only featured in the comic; in the cartoon his role was taken by Dabbler.

  • Back-Alley Doctor: Though a well-meaning one, who takes great pride in his self-appointed role as the village medic.
  • Worst Aid: In-universe example of the trope, as his less-than-perfect idea of first aid often causes some fairly realistic (if still cartoonish) damage to his patients.

Dreamy Smurf/Astrosmurf

File:DreamySmurf 4627.jpg

The village dreamer and adventurer, who became Astrosmurf in the album of the same name and two cartoon episodes (an Animated Adaptation of such album and a sequel episode), and captain of the S.S. Smurf II in several others. Voiced by Don Messick in the cartoon show.

Drummer Smurf

File:DrummerSmurf 3154.jpg

Appears only in the comic book.

  • Composite Character: Inversion. In "King Smurf" Harmony Smurf gets the job as the drummer who gives announcements to the village. Several comics later, in "The Finance Smurf" they are separate characters. It's hard to guess which of the intermediate appearances are Harmony Smurf or Drummer Smurf.

Editor Smurf

Despite his nickname, he's more a paperboy than an editor, bringing out the Smurf Village newspaper. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation, since this role is taken by Drummer Smurf in "The Reporter Smurf"

Enamored Smurf

File:EnamoredSmurf 8631.gif

A Smurf who is so much in love with the Smurfette that he never thinks of anything else. Appears only in the comic books.

  • Love Makes You Dumb: Or in his case, at least too preoccupied with dreaming about your potential girlfriend than to actually, y'know, try to talk to her.
  • Loves Me Not: A common practise for him.

Explorer Smurf

Farmer Smurf

File:FarmerSmurf 5961.jpg

The Smurf responsible for growing the village's vegetables. In later seasons, he gets his own Genie in a Bottle, Gourdy, though he generally prefers working for things rather than wishing for them. In the cartoon, and the early comics, he dresses in ordinary Smurf clothes, but in later comics and the live-action movie he wears a straw hat and green overalls. Voiced by Alan Young in the cartoon and Joel McCrary in the live-action movie.

  • Fake Brit: Speaks in an approximation of a Welsh accent in the cartoon.
  • Nice Hat: In the comic and live-action movie he has a straw hat.
  • The One Who Wears Shoes: In his later comic book appearances, when he also wears the green overalls and straw hat.
  • Stop Helping Me!: Often says this to Gourdy.

Finance Smurf

File:FinanceSmurf 8190.jpg

A Smurf who, after learning about money from watching humans, tried to introduce currency among his peers, and for a while worked as their banker, before the system was abandoned. Appears only in the comic books.

  • Money Fetish: He was the only Smurf not to want to abandon the money system and for a while preferred living alone with his money rather than with the other Smurfs. In the end, though, he got lonely and changed his mind.

Fisher Smurf/Angler Smurf

File:FisherSmurf 706.jpg

The village fisherman. His job seems to be rather pointless, since he never catches anything, and even if he had Smurfs don't eat fish anyway. The one time he did catch something (a baby octopus) he went through considerable trouble in order to get it back to its mother. He is, however, very knowledgeable about marine life and can easily identify most types of underwater animals.

  • Berserk Button: A very mild case, but he really doesn't like it when you ask him if the fish are biting (they aren't).
  • Fishing for Sole: He never seems to catch any actual fish... which is just as well, since Smurfs don't seem to eat fish.

Flighty Smurf

File:FlightySmurf 140.jpg

The world's most indecisive Smurf, Flighty can't make his mind up about anything. Voiced by Paul Winchell in the cartoon show.

  • Attention Deficit Ooh Shiny: In the comic; not so much in the cartoon.
  • Canon Immigrant: First appeared in the cartoon before his appearance in "The Smurfs and the Book that Says It All"
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Though there is an indecisive Smurf who shows up for a couple of scenes in the comic book version of "The Smurfs and the Magic Egg," who causes a bit of annoyance when he can't decide what to wish for. This Smurf is never actually identified as Flighty Smurf, but it's very likely that it is him.

Flying Smurf/Thief Smurf/Aviator Smurf

File:FlyingSmurf 5348.gif

His biggest dream and passion in life is flying, and he'll do anything in order to achieve this. Appears only in the comic books.

  • Bungling Inventor: When trying to figure out ways to fly.
  • Flight: The dream he tries to fulfill during his Day In The Limelight.
  • Punny Nickname: In French, his name is "Schtroumpf Volant". "voler" in French means either "fly" or "steal" -- therefore he can be either Flying Smurf or Thief Smurf, because he steals other Smurfs' belongings to help him in his madcap schemes for achieving flight.

Greedy Smurf/Sweety Smurf

File:GreedySmurf 2308.jpg

The village chef and food freak. Voiced by Hamilton Camp in the cartoon show.

  • Big Eater
  • Composite Character: His cartoon version is amalgamated with Chef Smurf.
  • Supreme Chef: In the cartoon, at least; all the Smurfs agree on that point. (So does he, come to think of it; he's the biggest fan of his own food.)
  • Team Chef: Again, in the cartoon. The comic Greedy doesn't enjoy cooking anywhere near as much as he enjoys eating.

Grouchy Smurf

File:GrouchySmurf 8739.jpg

The village curmudgeon. Voiced by Michael Bell in the cartoon show, and by George Lopez in the live-action movie.

  • Grumpy Bear: In the comic books, it was speculated at one point by other Smurfs that he never quite got over being stung by the Buzz Fly (apparently because he was the first victim and stayed the longest under its effect). In the cartoon show, his behavior is simply natural.
  • Flanderization: In his first appearances in the comics, he was perfectly capable of carrying on a normal conversation, even with his grouchy attitude. Over time, though, his Mad Libs Catchphrase of "I hate (...)" became more and more prominent in his dialogue, and by the time the cartoon came around, almost all of Grouchy's dialoge was based solely around declaring his hatred for whatever the others were talking about at the time.
    • This is undone and inverted for the live-action movie, where he's far more verbal and sarcastic, and only says "I hate..." a couple of times in the entire movie.
  • Hates Being Touched: In the cartoon show episode "A Hug For Grouchy", he shows a great aversion to hugs.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: He generally hates everyone and everything, although, he does like Baby Smurf, Smurfette, and Papa Smurf.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Grouchy may say he hates everything, but if theres one thing he does love, it's Baby Smurf.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In The Smurfs and the Magic Flute during "Just Like Their Names": "I don't act like my name!"
  • Jerkass Facade: In the movie he confesses to the green M&M plushie that he uses his grouchiness to hide his true feelings.
  • Mad Libs Catchphrase: "I hate (...)"
  • Pet the Dog: In the album where Baby Smurf is introduced, when Grouchy Smurf learns that the stork is coming back to take away Baby Smurf, he decides to take him away in the woods because he doesn't want him to leave. When he eventually returns, he cries and shows more emotion that he has ever done in the series.
  • Punctuated for Emphasis: In A Christmas Carol: "I! HATE! HATS!"

Gutsy Smurf

File:GutsySmurf 8694.png

A kilt-wearing Smurf with a Scottish accent. Appears only in the live-action movie. Voiced by Alan Cumming.

Handy Smurf

File:HandySmurf 4507.jpg

The village repairman, mechanic and inventor. Voiced by Michael Bell in the cartoon show, and by Jeff Foxworthy in the live-action movie.

Harmony Smurf

File:HarmonySmurf 376.gif

The village musician, who is most often seen playing the trumpet but is equally hopeless with all instruments. He is mostly used as Papa Smurf's herald. Voiced by Hamilton Camp in the cartoon show.

Hefty Smurf

File:HeftySmurf 4986.jpg

The village athlete and strongman; he's the strongest and fittest of all the Smurfs and is usually called upon to perform the toughest physical tasks. Voiced by Frank Welker in the cartoon show, and Gary Basaraba in the live-action movie.

  • The Big Guy: Plays this role to the other Smurfs, despite being the same physical size.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Of the gentler kind.
  • Demoted to Extra: He's a major character in both comics and cartoon, but only appears in a few scenes in the live-action movie.
  • Disguised in Drag: Disguised himself as Smurfette to protect her from the unwanted affections of a troll king.
  • Men Don't Cry: Considers Weepy a sissy for his excessive crying, but ends up crying himself.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: For a little Smurf, he sure is strong.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Hefty attempts on hitting Smurfette in the cartoon adaptation of "The Smurfette" after she fesses up she's taking orders from Gargamel.

Jokey Smurf

File:JokeySmurf 8605.gif

The village prankster. Voiced by June Foray in the cartoon show, and by Paul Reubens in the live-action movie.

  • Asshole Victim: Accidentally became this in "The Kaplowey Scroll" when he made Grouchy angry enough to say the word "kaplowey" which made him disappear. Fortunately, Papa Smurf reversed that.
  • The Hyena
  • Jerkass
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: At least when it comes to Baby Smurf, he doesn't play his pranks on him, but instead gives him nice presents.
  • Non-Fatal Explosions: His explosive gifts just leave the victim stained by black soot.
  • Who's Laughing Now?: Sometimes the joke gets turned back on him, and he doesn't find it all that funny. At least in the live-action movie he is able to laugh off the gift box that exploded on him.

King Smurf/Pretentious Smurf

File:King Smurf 1796.jpg

During Papa Smurf's absence, the Smurfs voted which of them would temporarily lead them. The chosen one donned a golden costume and made the others call him king, becoming a tyrant until Papa Smurf's return. When not being King, he's known as "Pretentious Smurf." Appears in the comic only, as the role was played by Brainy Smurf in the cartoon show.

  • Drunk with Power: He was a completely normal Smurf until he got into power -- then he quickly became a tyrant, began wearing "kingly" clothes, demanded absolute respect and obedience from everyone, got Hefty and other strong Smurfs to act as his bodyguards, threw Smurfs in prison for petty crimes....
  • Hypocritical Humor: Played rather darkly when he chuckles and chides Hefty for being angry with Jokey over the usual "exploding surprise" gift box -- but when he himself is the victim of a similar gift box a couple of panels later, he completely flips his lid and has Jokey thrown in jail. This turns out to be the last straw for a number of Smurfs, and thus the rebellion and civil war kicks off in earnest.
  • Tyrant Takes the Helm

Lazy Smurf/Sleepy Smurf

File:LazySmurf 1209.jpg

He's usually found lying around somewhere and napping, especially if there's work to be done. Voiced by Michael Bell in the cartoon show.

  • Flanderization: In the first few comics, his laziness was limited to sleep at work (be it hiding to sleep or pretending to work by using his tools as a stand to sleep), but later stories changed it to want a nap even during fun activities like playing ball or having a party.
  • Lazy Bum
  • The Slacker: He doesn't really do much of anything in the village, and the times he is called to do something he usually ends up either sleeping on the job or making excuses in order to not have to do it. Could have become a Professional Slacker, but that would take far too much effort.
  • Sleepyhead: Of the Cloudcuckoolander variety; for the most part he sees nothing wrong with dozing off at all times.

Liar Smurf

The village gossip, who tends to make up most of the gossip he spreads. Appears only in the comic book.

Lucky Smurf

File:LuckySmurf 3233.jpg

Appears only in the comic books. After watching humans, he introduces gambling to the village and becomes a compulsive gambler.

  • The Gambling Addict: Oh yeah.
  • Ironic Nickname: He is very unlucky at gambling -- though this is partly the fault of his addiction, as he'll make bets that are impossible for him to win just so that others will agree to the bet.

== Mariner Smurf/Submariner Smurf/Marco Smurf ==

File:SubmarinerSmurf 5599.jpg

A Smurf who used a submarine at first, but then changed his mind and became a boat-sailing mariner. He goes out to sea to get the Smurfs spices. His nickname was changed to Marco Smurf in the Animated Adaptation, where he was voiced by Rob Paulsen.

Miller Smurf

File:MillerSmurf 2154.jpg

The village miller, easily recognizable by his striped hat, dark blue shirt, and wooden clogs. Appears only in the comics.

Miner Smurf

File:MinerSmurf 2927.jpg

The village spelunker, who spends much of his time mining for useful metals. He was the one who discovered coal, which certainly helped the Smurf village during the cold winters. In the cartoon show, he is voiced by Alan Young.

  • Dug Too Deep: A variant of this happens at one point, when Miner (aided by an unwitting Clumsy) discovers an underground civilization of gnomes who ended up taking the Smurfs as slaves. Luckily the gnomes end up being Good All Along, only taking the Smurfs because they are responsible for keeping the Earth's core hot, have worked themselves to exhaustion and are desperate for a break. A few convenient inventions by Handy solves the problem, and gnomes and Smurfs part in friendship.
  • Scotireland: Miner Smurf is spoken of as having either an Irish or a Scottish accent.
  • Worthless Yellow Rocks: He's struck gold a couple of times, but never saw any use for it.

Narrator Smurf

File:NarratorSmurf 5269.png

Appears only in the live-action movie, where he is voiced by Tom Kane.

Natural Smurf/Nat Smurfling

File:NaturalSmurf 466.jpg

A Smurf with an affinity for nature, and particularly animals. He's one of three Smurfs who de-ages to Smurfling age, though unlike Snappy and Slouchy he had already made several appearances as an adult Smurf in earlier stories. Voiced by Charlie Adler in the cartoon show.

Nobody Smurf/Somebody Smurf

File:NobodySmurf 8149.jpg

A Smurf with no distinct character traits whatsoever. Tired of being a "Nobody," he went looking for a character trait that could give him a new name, but discovered that his true talent was being indistinct, after which he changed his name to "Somebody Smurf." Appeared only in the cartoon show.

Nosey Smurf

File:NoseySmurf 4455.jpg

An extremely curious Smurf who wants to know everything about everyone and everything, frequently getting into trouble because he noses around things that are none of his business.

  • Curiosity Is a Crapshoot: Papa Smurf even tells the Smurfs that there's nothing wrong with being curious, but that Nosey simply takes his curiosity too far.
  • Name's the Same: Gargamel posed as a Smurf going by this name in one episode, namely because of the nose.

Nurse Smurf

File:NurseSmurf 3089.png

Appears only in the comic books, and even then only once. It's possible that he's Doctor Smurf's assistant, or even Doctor Smurf himself operating under a different name.

  • One-Scene Wonder: Only appears in a single panel, wrapping Painter Smurf's finger.
    • Can also be seen (though not called by name) in The Smurfs and the Magic Flute, patching up Clumsy.

Painter Smurf/Artist Smurf

File:PainterSmurf 8572.jpg

A true-blue artist, Painter is constantly seen obsessing over his latest masteurpiesa -- usually a painting, but he also works with sculpture and other visual arts. He's usually seen wearing a red jacket and a black tie, with a hat looking vaguely like a beret. In the cartoon series he's voiced by Bill Callaway and speaks in an outrageous French accent.

Paleontologist Smurf

Passive-Agressive Smurf

Like Complimentary Smurf, he is mentioned, but not actually seen, in the live-action movie. Apparently, "he's always so nice, but when he leaves, you feel bad." The name is most likely a joke on the naming conventions of Smurfs.

Poet Smurf

PoetSmurf 2777.jpg

The village poet; a kindly and sensitive soul who's so fond of poetry that he'll sometimes speak in rhyme even in casual conversation. Voiced by Frank Welker in the cartoon show.

Postman Smurf

File:PostmanSmurf 8656.jpg

Appears only in the comics -- first for a brief one-page gag, then in an extended role in the German magazine, where he curiously enough comes with mail from another Smurf village -- the only time in any continuity where it's directly stated that there is more than one Smurf village.

Potter Smurf

File:PotterSmurf 9227.jpg

Appears only in the comic books, digging for clay (in other Smurfs' gardens, without asking for permission) in a single album. Despite his brief appearance (only three panels) we can assume he makes clay pots.

  • Cloudcuckoolander: Seems to have traces of this, in that he can't begin to see why other Smurfs would have a problem with him digging up their gardens when that's where the best clay is.

Pushover Smurf

File:PushoverSmurf 2062.jpg

A Smurf who just can't find it in himself to say no to anyone, no matter what they ask him to do. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation.

Reporter Smurf

File:ReporterSmurf 7819.jpg

Reporter, writer and editor of the village newspaper, always after the latest "sensational" news.

Reveler Smurf/Festive Smurf

File:RevelerSmurf 8610.jpg

A Smurf who is always eager to have a party, even more than any other Smurf. He briefly appears in two albums, and also appears in the French version of the The Smurfs and the Magic Flute Animated Adaptation, though the United States English dub changes him with Actor Smurf (see Timid Smurf, below).

Scaredy Smurf

ScaredySmurf 751.jpg

The world's most cowardly Smurf; he's afraid of everything. May or may not be the same character as Panicky Smurf from the live-action movie.

Sculptor Smurf

File:SculptorSmurf 7192.jpg

Appears only in the comic books.

  • NickName's the Same: With Tailor Smurf in the original French. Which makes for a few confusing scenes when Papa Smurf calls for one and the other appears. (This isn't completely consistent, though, so it's possible that he eventually got tired of the miscommunications and changed his name.)

Showoff Smurf

Sloppy Smurf/Smelly Smurf

File:SloppySmurf 1345.jpg

The village garbage collector, with a passion for collecting really smelly things. He has a pet fly named Fly.

Slouchy Smurf/ Slouchy Smurfling

File:SlouchySmurf 435.gif

A laid-back and relaxed Smurf, most likely to be found leaning against something with his hands in his pockets, or just off calmly doing his own thing while the others are running around. Along with Nat and Snappy, he is de-aged in Season 5 and becomes a Smurfling again.

  • Fountain of Youth: Father Time's clock de-ages him to a Smurfling.
  • The Stoic: He has traces of this, seldom getting worked up or excited about anything.

Snappy Smurf/Snappy Smurfling

SnappySmurf 759.gif

A rambunctious and energetic Smurf with a big temper, traits which are only exaggerated when he along with Nat and Slouchy is de-aged to Smurfling age in the comic "The Smurflings" and in Season 5 of the cartoon.

Sneezy Smurf/Sickly Smurf/Chilly Smurf

File:SneezySmurf 7919.png

Always wears earmuffs and a scarf, and always shivering and sneezing -- sometimes because he has a cold and sometimes due to severe allergies.

Sweepy Smurf

File:SweepySmurf 198.jpg

The village chimney-sweeper; a cheerful and happy-go-lucky, if rather dirty and sooty, Smurf. Voiced by Don Messick in the cartoon show.

Tailor Smurf

File:TailorSmurf 2393.jpg

The village tailor. The main reason for the Smurfs' Limited Wardrobe, as he respects "the classic look" too much to ever agree to make any different kinds of clothes. He does allow the Smurflings to make their own set of clothes when his standard style doesn't suit them, but only under protest.

  • Always Camp: He sure has an artistic temperament for someone who never wants to do anything remotely different.
  • NickName's the Same: With Sculptor Smurf in the original french.

Timber Smurf/Lumberjack Smurf

File:LumberjackSmurf 2244.jpg

The village lumberjack, who according to the other Smurfs spends more time talking to the trees than cutting them down. Named Lumberjack Smurf in the comics and Timber Smurf in the cartoon.

  • Big Eater: But then, "you can't smurf a good day's work on an empty stomach."
  • Friend to All Living Things: He's very fond of trees, never cutting one down before its time -- and when he does cut it down he salutes and honors it, and makes sure to plant a new sapling in its place. He's also a friend to all woodland creatures, often sharing his camp with them when camping out.
  • Nice Guy: Basically, he's Hefty, if Hefty had been more in touch with his own softer side.

Timid Smurf/Actor Smurf

File:TimidSmurf 4215.jpg

Despite his nickname, he's more sad than timid, due to not having a pet, until he meets the dragon Grumpf. The cartoon version of the character eventually becomes Actor Smurf.

  • A Smurf And His Dragon: It's even in the title of the story (3rd story of the album "The Strange Awakening of Lazy Smurf"), save for "the" instead of "a"

Tracker Smurf

File:TrackerSmurf 9495.jpg

An expert woodsman and tracker, with a highly-developed sense of smell. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation.

Traveling Smurf

A Smurf who was sad with the life at the Smurf Village and wanted to travel.

Tuffy Smurf

TuffySmurf 9647.jpg

He wants to be Hefty Smurf so badly, but doesn't quite have the strength to back it up -- not that this stops him from jumping headfirst into danger and challenging everyone he meets to fisticuffs. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation, where he's voiced by Pat Fraley.

Vanity Smurf

File:VanitySmurf 7783.jpg

The world's most handsome Smurf; at least if you ask him. He's easily identified by the flower he's stuck in his hat and the handheld mirror he usually carries around so that he can look at himself whenever he wants. Voiced by Alan Oppenheimer in the cartoon show, and by John Oliver in the live-action movie.

  • Ambiguously Gay: Next to the Smurfette Principle and the alleged Communist propaganda, Vanity's sexuality is one of the most joked-about aspects of the franchise.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Sees himself as the most handsome Smurf, but, tohuman eyes at least, he's identical to all the others.
  • Narcissist
  • Vanity Is Feminine: No pun intended, but of course the most narcissistic smurf would be the one whose sexuality is the most often questioned.

Weakling Smurf

File:WeaklingSmurf 3812.jpg

Just like the name implies, a weakling. Though he's certainly willing to try his best and wants to do Big Things, his actual abilities are... somewhat lacking.

  • Did Not Get the Girl: Or at least, did not get the kiss from Smurfette at the end of "The Olympic Smurfs".
  • Magic Feather: In "The Olympic Smurfs" Papa Smurf gives him a reddish doping jelly to put on his nose, in order to help him compete in the Olympic Games. When he eventually wins, he is about to confess his cheating, but it turns out that the substance was only raspberry jelly, and that Weakling Smurf owes his victory only to his newly-acquired self-confidence.
    • The same Magic Feather element also appears in the cartoon episode "A Little Smurf Confidence", which also features Weakling.

Weather Smurf

File:WeatherSmurf 1822.jpg

The village meteorologist, whose job it is to predict the weather. Only appears in the comic books, as his function in the cartoon is taken over by Tracker Smurf (who simply smells the weather changing).

Weepy Smurf

File:WeepySmurf 1529.jpg

The Smurf who cries and sobs about everything. To Weepy Smurf, life is one huge tragedy no matter what happens -- if bad things happen, that's horribly sad, but if good things happen, that's sad too because they won't last.

Wooly Smurf

The Smurf responsible for shearing sheep to get the wool the Smurfs need to make their clothes with. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation, where he was voiced by Dick Gautier.

  • Canon Foreigner

===Reflection Smurf/Hundredth Smurf===

File:VanitySmurfAndHundredthSmurf 3287.jpg

In the Smurfs story "The Hundredth Smurf", Vanity Smurf's mirror is struck by lightning, which brings his reflection to life. The reflection speaks backwards and does everything Vanity Smurf does, but in reverse (lifting the right arm when Vanity lifts the left, for instance). After he causes chaos in the village by his opposite nature, the reflection decides to return to the mirror, but he goes through it instead, and comes out a regular Smurf. Voiced by Alan Oppenheimer in the cartoon show.

  • Mirror Self: Vanity Smurf's reflection, brought to life by a lightning.

Additional Smurfs


File:Smurfette Comic Book 2 2436.jpg

Originally the only female Smurf in the village, created by Gargamel as a weapon against the Smurfs and changed into a real Smurf by Papa Smurf. Voiced by Lucille Bliss in the cartoon show, and by Katy Perry in the live-action movie.

  • Action Girl: Promoted to this in the live-action movie.
  • Ascended Extra: At the end of her first comic appearance, she left the village and became an incidental character. The cartoon show made her into a regular, and the comics followed starting from "The Baby Smurf".
  • Beauty Equals Goodness
  • Becoming the Mask
  • Born as an Adult
  • The Chick
  • Distressed Damsel: Rarely is there an episode where Smurfette does NOT need someone else to rescue her. Mostly averted in the live-action movie.
  • Genki Girl
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: If she really is a tomboy...
    • In "Smurfs: The Lost Village", Smurfette reveals she's a tomboy. See here
  • Hair of Gold
  • Heel Face Turn: Smurfette when she was first created goes through this when she is transformed into a real Smurf through magic in the cartoon show by Papa Smurf.
  • Hello, Nurse!: Smurfette, after her magical makeover in the cartoon show, elicits this response in her fellow Smurfs. And in a single-page comic book gag, she actually became a nurse.
  • Hollywood Tone Deaf: Even Harmony Smurf notices how bad she sings.
  • Insubstantial Ingredients: The original comics and the Animated Adaptation each feature their own formula for her creation, but both include elements of the trope:
    • Comicbook: The clay statue was given life by being dipped in a formula made from a pinch of coquetry, a good layer of bias, three crocodile tears, a lizard brain, viper tongue powder, one carat of simpathy, a handful of wrath, one finger of lies, a thimble of gluttony, a pint of bad faith, a pinch of inconscience, a bit of sentimentality, a measure of silliness and a measure of cunning, much ingenuity and stubbornness, and a candle that has burned at both ends.
    • Cartoon: She was magically created from blue clay, sugar and spice but nothing nice, crocodile tears, half a pack of lies, a chatter of a magpie, and the hardest stone for her heart.
  • Lady in Red: Wears a red dress in "The Great Smurfette", though it was mostly a feminine version of Papa Smurf, and only to show that she was in charge of the Smurf Village.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Wears multiple copies of the same dress, yet treats them as though they were different outfits.
  • Magic Plastic Surgery: Or make that "plastic smurfery", which is the explanation in the original English translation of the story "The Smurfette" for how the title character was changed from her original appearance into a real Smurf.
  • Mama Bear: Around Baby Smurf.
  • Rule 34
  • Skip of Innocence: In the comic books, she goes for walks in the forest where she does this.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Trope Namer
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Sassette's Tomboy.
    • Tomboy to Nanny Smurf's Girly Girl.
  • The Vamp: She was this before her Heel Face Turn
  • Younger Than They Look: Smurfette is only a few years old despite looking like a young adult female Smurf.

Baby Smurf

Brought to the Smurf village by stork on the night of the blue moon, and has since then been the darling of all the Smurfs.

  • Child Mage: In the animated series, though never when anyone else is watching.
  • Fearless Infant: Occasionally invokes the trope, though is seldom in any real danger.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Immune, it seems, to magic designed to make people angry, evil, or even emotionless.

Clockwork Smurf

File:ClockworkSmurf 5777.jpg

Don Smurfo

The in-universe fictional character Expy of Zorro.


The King

The benevolent, white-bearded ruler of the kingdom and also the king that Johan and Peewit serve under, he is one of the few humans who has befriended the Smurfs. He's not particularly strong-willed or authoritative, but he has a good heart and generally wants the best for his subjects. Voiced by Bob Holt in the cartoon show.

  • Distressed Dude: Whenever he plays a big role in the stories, it's most often as this.
  • No Name Given: He's only ever called "The King" or "Your Majesty," his actual name is never mentioned.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He has to be, to put up with everything Peewit puts him through.

Princess Savina

A not-so-proper princess, niece of the King and cousin of King Gerard, who would much rather join in on Johan and Peewit's many adventures than be stuck at the palace under the watchful eyes of her governess, Dame Barbara. Voiced by Jennifer Darlin in the cartoon show.


The King's teenage squire (later knight) and best friend to Peewit, and one of the humans who have befriended the Smurfs. Many of the Smurfs and humans look up to him as a person to never do wrong. Voiced by Michael Bell in the cartoon show.


File:Pirluit 7376.jpg

The small-sized court jester who is usually Sir Johan's Sidekick, though in later seasons he made many solo appearances without Johan, interacting with the Smurfs and their other friends/enemies. Apart from Gargamel and Scruple, he's the human character who appears on the show the most. Voiced by Frank Welker in the cartoon show, and by Cam Clarke in The Smurfs and the Magic Flute.


Peewit's pet goat and trusty riding animal, Named "Biquette" in the comics and cartoon, and "Annie" in the cartoon version of The Smurfs and the Magic Flute. She's very loyal to Peewit and always tries to protect him, but she's also highly temperamental and will think nothing of attacking and headbutting those who annoy her.


File:Homnibus 7482.jpg

A wizard who frequently helps either Johan and Peewit or the Smurfs. Half the time Papa Smurf leaves the Smurf Village, when he isn't seeking for rare herbs, he's going to visit Homnibus and play chess. Voiced by Alan Oppenheimer in the cartoon show.


Homnibus' young helper. Despite frequently appearing along with his master in Johan and Peewit stories, his only appearance in a Smurfs story so far has been "The Finance Smurf".

King Gerard

A teenage prince-turned-king of a neighboring kingdom, and the cousin of Princess Savina. Clockwork Smurf lives with him and acts as his companion and advisor. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation, voiced by Phil Proctor.


The mute wood elf who appears as a recurring character in the cartoon series.

  • Cute Mute
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is a play on the term laconic, which means "using few words; expressing much in few words; concise".


A young mermaid from the underwater kingdom of Atlantica, sho shows up in a handful of episodes and functions as Handy Smurf's Love Interest.

Selwyn and Tallulah

The bickering sorcerer couple who appear only in the Animated Adaptation



File:Gargamel 3851.jpg

The main villain of the Smurfs. Voiced by Paul Winchell in the cartoon show, played by Hank Azaria in the live-action movie.

  • Arch Enemy
  • Beard of Evil: Attempts to grow one with a hair tonic in one episode. He only manages to wear a fake Beard of Evil when passing himself off as another wizard in order to get Hogatha's bird call.
  • Catch Phrase: "I'll get you, I'll get all of you if that's the last thing I ever do!"
  • Evil Is Hammy: Even more so in the live-action movie.
  • Evil Laugh: What's Gargamel without this?
  • Evil Sorcerer: Constantly referred to as such, though he's just as much of an alchemist.
  • Evil Tastes Good: Gargamel goes on about how delicious Smurfs must be despite never actually eating one.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Gargamel's plans are always doomed to fail.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Gargamel usually gets done in by the very schemes he uses against the Smurfs.
  • It's Personal: Gargamel originally wanted to capture Smurfs so that he could use them to turn base metals into gold, or eat them, but time and time again with defeat means that he's now mainly after Revenge -- and if he can fill his stomach or get rich by doing so, so much the better.
  • Save the Villain: Sometimes the Smurfs have to save him from danger or from his own villainy.
  • Taken for Granite: Was turned into a statue along with his cat in one episode, but Papa Smurf restored him to normal.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Despite many a Save the Villain moment by the Smurfs, he still never returns the favor and is still plotting his revenge against them.
  • Villain Song: Has one that he sings on occasion, plus a few in certain episodes like "The Blue Plague" song that is based on a similar villain song from Yogi's First Christmas.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Even Baby Smurf is not immune to Gargamel's evil plans when it suits him.


File:Azrael 6993.jpg

Gargamel's scruffy and much put-down-upon cat. Voiced by Don Messick in the cartoon show and Frank Welker in the live-action movie.

  • Ambiguous Gender: In the comics, at least. The cartoon on several occasions distinctly refers to the cat as male -- not that this has stopped fans from speculating.
  • Androcles' Lion: In one episode, he uncharacteristically spares Natural Smurf after Nat saved his life.
    • More like reluctantly, as he was scared off by an approaching animal.
  • Cats Are Mean: He's just as gung-ho about catching Smurfs as Gargamel is, and is often seen licking his chops hungrily whenever Smurfs are mentioned.
  • Right-Hand-Cat
  • Silent Snarker: Since he's a cat, he can't actually speak -- but in both cartoon and live-action movie his meows are so speech-like that it's often easy to guess from his tone exactly what he's saying, and what he's saying is quite often something degradatory about Gargamel.


Gargamel's nephew and apprentice, a Bratty Half-Pint who was more or less dumped onto his uncle after he was kicked out of sorcerer's school for causing trouble with the teachers. He helps Gargamel out with his plans, though is often less than enthusiastic about it. Voiced by Brenda Vaccaro in the cartoon show.

  • Bratty Half-Pint
  • Deadpan Snarker: Like Azrael, he doesn't think much of Gargamel's intelligence. Unlike Azrael, he can clearly let Gargamel know in exact words what he thinks.
  • Genre Savvy: He quickly catches on to the fact that Gargamel's plans never work as they should, and often takes precautions for that.
  • Ironic Name: Despite being called Scruple, he doesn't appear to have any.
  • The Nicknamer: He always calls Gargamel "Gargie," much to the latter's annoyance.


An evil witch, obsessed with her looks despite being far from beautiful. Voiced by Janet Waldo.

Lord Balthazar

Gargamel's godfather in the cartoon series.


An evil witch, who mostly wants to make the world as miserable as she is. Voiced by Amanda McBroom

  • Despair Event Horizon: The origin of her behavior was shown in "Chlorhydris' Lost Love", where the wizard she intended to marry never showed up at the altar on her wedding night.



The ogre who lives in the Smurf forest. Voiced by Lennie Weinrib.
