He acts somewhat like Scaredy, usually in the way he freaks out when he hears the word "danger". Mayor Runswell is not very smart and does not do his job very well. He tends not to care much if Balsa City is in danger.
- Despite acting crazy like Scaredy when there is danger, he does not pay much attention when Scaredy is warning him of danger.
- His name is a pun of runs and well. This is a joke in how a Mayor is supposed to run his town well.
