Fred Jones is the leader of Mystery Inc. and a major character in the Scooby-Doo franchise.

An intelligent young man, Freddy is often in charge of setting the traps to catch the monster of the day. When the gang splits up, he usually pairs himself with Daphne Blake and Velma Dinkly, and Shaggy Rogers would go with Scooby. Other times though, he would just pair himself with Daphne and Velma would go with Shaggy and Scooby.

It is heavily believed by fans that he has an attraction to Daphne Blake. Furuture series would pair them together as a couple such as Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc.


  • In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, he is heavily dumbed down and often blamed a local bully named Red Herring for being the monster.
  • His intelligence is dumbed down slightly in What's New Scooby-Doo? but not as bad as APNSD.
