In Epic Mickey
When Mickey arrived at Mean Street, he immediately recognized his long-time nemesis hanging by Town Hall. Pete explains that Wasteland has different versions of his character, and also gives Mickey a warning that as long as he doesn't mess with anybody, they won't mess with him. Pete was one of the people Mickey had to go to to get the gears for the Penny Arcade.
Pete's quests have two formats, rounding up the Bunny Children to prevent them from causing trouble at Mean Street, or have Mickey run an errand related to any of his incarnations in Wasteland while Mickey is in Action Stages.
If you helped Small Pete to gain trust with the Gremlins, he will give you some E-Tickets. If you don't, he will give nothing. If you redeemed Petetronic, he will give you a Power Spark, this will unlock the Redeemed Petetronic Pin. If you destroyed Petetronic, he will give you some E-Tickets instead, this will unlock the Defeated Petetronic Pin. If you destroyed Captain Hook before rescuing the Sprite, Pete will give you The Hook Pin. If you saved the Sprite first, Pete will give you Power Spark and Pete Pan Vs. Hook Pin
During the Good Ending, Pete is seen giving away fireworks to the citizens in Mean Street, while in the Bad Ending has him scaring away the citizens and laughs. Both endings are meant to represent the ways in which we treat others.
Epic Mickey: Tales of Wasteland
"So Oswald didn't get the universal acclaim and adoration that Mickey became heir to. What did he manage to acquire? Mickey's arch nemesis, the formidable and ubiquitous "Pete" who- in a variety of incarnations- has bedeviled everyone's favorite mouse since 1928. 'And now he's in Wasteland, keeping up with his old tricks, wearing just as many different hats and identities as he ever did. 'Whether he's thrusting his unwanted attentions on Ortensia or wreaking havoc while attired as an ersatz Peter Pan, you can count on this two-bit thug to be up to some new villainy."
Pete is a character in the Epic Mickey: Tales of Wasteland (digi)comics. These comics are a prequel to Epic Mickey and take place before the Thinner Disaster.

- Many people always believe nowadays that Pete is a type of dog. This is not so, as he is actually a cat, as shown in the early cartoons. There was even an episode of House of Mouse that confirmed this fact.
- His character predates Oswald the Lucky Rabbit by a good amount of years, existing as an antagonist in the old "Alice in Cartoon Land" short films. When Walt needed a villain for Oswald to fight, Pete was given the role, and so began his position as main antagonist and rival to Oswald, and eventually, Mickey Mouse.
- This pete may be based on his appearence in the oswald cartoons, where he where wears similar overrals and a top hat. This pete however wears a bowler hat.
- Though Pete isn't a forgotten character he is in his classic form of Peg leg Pete, probably Pete without a peg leg isn't quite as nasty, and is merely sometimes a little problem.
