Spike Bulldog (simply known as Spike) is the tritagonist and occasional antagonist of the animated series Tom and Jerry. Though he is also a protector of sorts towards Jerry, sometimes going as far as being an enforcer of sorts to the mischievous rodent - however there is no denying that Spike is often unjustly cruel towards Tom (a stereotype of dog/cat rivalry) and although he often gives Tom several chances to avoid his wrath he will attack the cat viciously once those chances have been spent and not knowing it was Jerry who was really causing all of the disturbance and trouble had put on himself, his son and Tom and stealing his bones and messing up his son. After beating Tom, he is shown having a good time and resting peacefully with Tyke Bulldog along with Jerry the real culprit. Spike and his mother, He called his mother "mom".

Tom often tries to get revenge on Spike, so it can be argued that much like Jerry Mouse himself Spike can play both the good guy and the bad guy depending on the cartoon - in general though he is a bully in regards to Tom and threatens bodily harm to the cat, to the point of making Tom fear for his live on numerous occasions. Making him a an anti-hero and occasionally leading villain in the series.

Spike can also be friendly with Jerry Mouse and his son when he wants to be and is seen to be a caring father, showing that although a fierce opponent he isn't entirely without merit.

Spike was voiced by Michael Donovan in Tom and Jerry Tales who also voices Grey Hulk in The Incredible Hulk, Guile and Zangief in Street Fighter TV series, and Sabretooth in X-Men Evolution.
