Tom is Jerry's best friend and archenemy, and are pretty much a mix of friends, bitter rivals, friendly rivals, and frenemies. They are usually shown competing against each other, and Jerry always comes out on top, due to being cunning to foil Tom's attempts to outwit him despite Tom's high intelligence and crafty personality, but Tom occasionally triumphs and Jerry is the loser. However, they both share a secret bond of friendship and can't enjoy their lives without one another, as they bond over a mutual sentiment towards an unpleasant experience and their antagonistic tendencies with each other are more play than serious attacks. Multiple shorts will show the two getting along with minimal difficulty and they are shown to work together to defeat the real villains who antagonize both of them.
Spike is Jerry's frenemy. On very rare occasions, he is shown to protect Jerry from Tom by beating him up when he provoked him first. Spike's enemy side towards Jerry increases and is more often than usual (including his first appearance) as he finally realizes it was Jerry who was really causing all of the disturbance and the trouble had put on him, his son and Tom and also stealing his bones and messing up his son but sometimes he helps them to remove his tooth and his birthday party when he was upset.
Butch is one of Jerry’s enemies. He is shown to catch Jerry and stop Tom, but often fails, due to Jerry outwitting him.
Toots is Jerry's girlfriend. She is shown in the end when Jerry falls in love with her and she kisses him.
Tuffy is Jerry's nephew. He is shown to either visit Jerry or living with him, and they are shown to run away from Tom when he attacks them, but they often outwit him in the end.
Quacker is one of Jerry's friends. He is shown to be attacked by Tom by surprise but Jerry always saves Quacker from being eaten by Tom.
Toodles is another one of Jerry's friends. In Casanova Cat, Jerry kissed Toodles on the cheek, which had her take an interest in him. At the end, a car drove off with Toodles and Jerry, and they shared a passionate kiss in the back seat.
Tyke, like his father is an frenemy of Jerry. He is shown to be tormented by Jerry, or Tom due to their chasing and Jerry usually frames Tom for their antics and Spike usually threatens him to leave his son alone.
