|First Appearance||Steamboat Willie (1928)|
Mickey Mouse (ミッキーマウス, Mikkīmausu) is a starting fighter in the game Cartoon All-Star Rumble, who along with all fighters in the roster is making his first playable appearance in the series. Like almost all other characters in the game, Mickey's design remains true to his original Disney incarnation, while also adding touches or realism such as his shorts being made of cotton. Overall, Mickey appears as 3D incarnation of the famous mouse. His voice clips will be provided by his current voice actor, Chris Diamantopoulos who provides his voice in the Mickey Mouse shorts. His moveset reflects many of the character's most famous incarnations such as Fantasia, Steamboat Willie, and the modern Mickey Mouse shorts.
Paul Rudish, the creator of the modern Mickey Mouse shorts, and John Lassiter, the head of Walt Disney Animation supervised the development of Mickey Mouse to ensure that he remained true to his original incarnation for the fighting game.
Mickey Mouse is an animated anthropomorphic mouse created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks in the year 1928. Mickey is, by far, The Walt Disney Company's most famous character and serves as the company's mascot. Estimated as standing 2' 3" (69 centimeters) and weighing 23 pounds (10 kilograms), Mickey rapidly rose to the pinnacle of American culture, becoming the most popular and recognizable cartoon character in the world and the prime influence of following cartoons.
Mickey is described as being a balanced fighter with no notable strengths or weaknesses to describe. His moveset is a mix of attacks pulled from the original shorts by Walt Disney, the Mickey Mouse Works shorts, and the more recent Paul Rudish Mickey Mouse shorts by Disney. In addition to his slapstick style moves, Mickey has the ability to summon his powers from Fantasia via his Grand Finale move.

- The sumo wrestler that appears in Mickey's Level 2 Hyper Combo is actually the same one that Mickey challenged in the 2013 Mickey Mouse short film, Tokyo Go. The animations for the sumo wrestler are also animated the same as he was in the film.
- Mickey notably calls Bugs Bunny by his first name, this is a callback to the 1988 film "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?", the only notable film in history that featured Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse on the same screen for the first and only time that both characters had appeared on screen together prior to the release of CASR.
