Here be the Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends characters and the tropes they embody.
A creative, smart, and very warm-hearted eight-year old. Bloo is his imaginary friend.
- Absentee Actor: It is possible that his voice actor (Sean Marquette) was busy with something else during the making of the episode Pranks for Nothing.
- Adorably Precocious Child
- Author Avatar: Creator Craig McCracken based Mac on himself as a child.
- Badass Adorable: He doesn't "fight" often, but when he does....
- Big Eater: Only when it comes to sugar.
- Birthday Hater: With a twist; Bloo giving him surprise birthdays on almost any day except the actual day of his birthday (with one exception), he's grown something of a hatred towards them. It's mainly because he's put in embarrassing situations.
- Break the Cutie: If Bloo is separated from him. Even if Bloo causes his most woobie-ish moments, he becomes an even bigger woobie.
- Cheerful Child
- Chivalrous Pervert: The pervert part is implied, the chivalrous part is clear-as-day.
- The Cutie
- G-Rated Drug: NEVER give Mac sugar. Seriously.
- Heroes Want Redheads: His crush on Frankie.
- The Messiah
- Nice Guy
- Only Sane Man: This trope, however, is wonderfully averted if he eats too much sugar.
- Out of Focus: Not in the show, but in the merchandise. Whenever merchandise of the series is released, expect Cheese to take his place (except for one shirt with both him and Cheese on it, and at least he did get a stuffed animal and figuriene of himself)
- Precocious Crush: His crush on Frankie.
- Puppy Dog Eyes
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Bloo's red.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Savvy Guy to Goo's Energetic Girl.
- Shrinking Violet
- Squishy Wizard
- Sweet Tooth
- Vocal Evolution: His voice gets lower and somewhat scratchy after a while, due to his voice actor hitting puberty. This is very noticeable, escpecially when on the DVD Commentary for "Store Wars", you can hear him (the DVD came out during season five) talk against his higher voice in season one.
- Wise Beyond Their Years
- Your Size May Vary: In some episodes, he's as tall as Bloo, but in others, he's taller. Justified, as he's eight years old and was probably going through a few growth spurts.
Mac's reckless, hyperactive imaginary friend. Mac's complete opposite; however without him, Mac would do everything Bloo says and does.
- Anti-Hero: Type IV or V, Depending on the Writer.
- Attention Whore
- Big Eater
- Bratty Half-Pint
- Heroes Want Redheads: His (very shallow compared to Mac's) crush on Frankie.
- Flanderization: He started out being very protective of Mac. Then he became a Jerk with a Heart of Gold in season one, more of a Jerkass in season two, and by the later seasons, some fans were wishing that Mac would just leave Bloo already.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In the earlier seasons.
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk
- Hidden Heart of Gold: When he though that Eduardo died he was devastated, and said nobody else deserved to be him. When Eduardo came back to fosters, he acted like he normally did, and said he didn't miss him at all. When everybody left, Bloo hugged Eduardo, and told him he missed him.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Mac's blue.
- Screams Like a Little Girl
- Send in the Clones: In "Bloo's Brothers".

- Gentle Giant: His owner, now a grown police officer, made him to not ony have a playmate as well as protector from bullies, but to also have someone who was gentle enough to play with her baby brother.
- Cowardly Lion: However, having a protector backfired. Instead of teasing her, the bullies started to attack Ed, who was too cowardly to defend himself, despite his looks.
