Freddy is the leader of the gang. He is known for his ascot, which was removed for the series What's New, Scooby-Doo?. He usually drives the Mystery Machine. He is always good at setting traps to catch the villain, but he can never keep them from being fouled up. When the gang splits up, Fred would go with Daphne and Velma, though sometimes Velma went with Shaggy and Scooby.
