Mortimer Mouse (simply known as Mortimer) is the overall secondary antagonist in the Mickey Mouse franchise. He is Mickey's arch-rival and second arch-nemesis (after Pete). He is a giant, anthropomorphic mouse. Unlike other mouse characters, he has two large teeth, like a rat (except in House of Mouse, where he doesn't have them). He has big feet like Goofy, and he is tall as him, with some of his appearances making him almost tall as him, or taller than him. Because of some of his rat-like traits, many characters and people mistake him for a rat.
He loves girls, but love is just not on his side. In "House Of Mouse", it is shown that Mortimer is hated by all the guests. Even Pete is shown to dislike him. When Mortimer isn't trying to get Minnie or Daisy, he is trying to get other girls, such as the Ugly Stepsisters, Madam Mim and Ursula. The only girl he doesn't like is Clarabelle, who ironically is, the only girl who loves him.
