Fred Jones is the leader and oldest member of Mystery Inc. he is good at sports he is the gang's anchor keeping everyone focused on their task. Even when Fred makes a mistake he still pulls through as being the leader.

Even though Fred has his moments of failure and being goofy he is almost always two or three steps ahead of the monsters. Fred is also always contributing useful information to the gang to help solve the mystery.

Even though over the years Fred has became more clumsy and cowardly one still remains the same. Fred still stands up straight, holding his head high and doesn't let anything bring him down. He gets up back up and tries again even if the plan fails. Fred like the rest of Mystery Inc. is loyal to his friends. While Fred is nice he always likes to prove his strength, intelligence and to prove his usefulness.

Fred is bold, brave, noble, educated, patient, serious, protective, rational, strategic, responsible and determined. Fred like Daphne has a little bit of an obsession with his style of clothes and appearance but it is not to the point of were it is a strong and bad as her vanity. He will to put it off to the side more then Daphne. Fred has shown to be good with cymbals this is because he had an uncle who was cymbaliest in the marines and he taught Fred how to use them.

But in the 2010-2013 television series Mystery Incorporated Fred Jones Jr. is not his real name and is adopted by Fred Jones Sr. his parents are Judy Reeves and Brad Chiles.
