Mr Brave 1

Mr. Brave front cover

Mr. Brave is the bravest person in the world, or so everyone thinks. He is brave enough to save Mr. Messy from the ocean, but he is not brave enough to go on a tightrope with Little Miss Somersault after he discovers that it is about to split into two. Little Miss Trouble watches this and tells everybody that Mr. Brave is not brave at all, and then she dares him to go the tightrope. He remembers that he is supposed to be at a tea party with Little Miss Bossy and runs away. Little Miss Trouble says that he is not brave because he ran away, but after the crowd tells her that he is brave because he was late to the tea party and was willing to face reprimands from Little Miss Bossy, Little Miss Trouble thought in a moment and said "Gosh, he is brave after all!"

Mr. Men Little Miss / ミスタ一メン リトルミス[]


  • In the French dub of Mr. Men and Little Miss, he is voiced by a woman, thus giving him the voice of a prepubescent boy.
  • Mr. Brave is the first Mr. Man to have Little Misses appear in his book.
  • He originated from France.
    • Interestingly, two French Little Misses also appear in this book in one picture.
  • Even though Mr. Brave is published in 9th of May 1990, he was published in March 1992 on the original and new French covers alongside with Mr. Grumble, Mr. Perfect and Mr. Cheerful, all of which were also published in 9th May, 1990.
  • According to the official Mr. Men website, his favorite food is sausages and mash.
  • Mr. Brave is one of the few characters to wear glasses. The others are Little Miss Neat, Little Miss Busy, Little Miss Inventor, Little Miss All-Goes-Well, Mr. Clever, Mr. Calm, and Little Miss Contrary.
  • Despite his bravery, he has a couple of fears:
    • Spiders (known as Arachnophobia), as seen in Mr. Brave vs. Koko the Gorilla.
    • Tight-Rope Walking (kind of), according to the official Mr. Men website. What happened with him and Little Miss Somersault on the tight rope in his story may be the reason he secretly has this particular fear.
  • Moral: Being fearless and being brave are very different. Bravery means to persevere even when you're scared.
  • This book along with Mr. Grumble, Mr. Perfect and Mr. Cheerful have a different font.
