* BigBrotherInstinct: When Wakko dies after eating too many Swedish meatballs, you better believe Yakko literally goes to Hell and back to rescue him. (Dot too, of course, but she's Wakko's ''little'' sister.) Also gets expressed subtly throughout, with things like leading his siblings around by the hand and covering them from danger. He's straight up PromotedToParent in ''Wakko's Wish''.

* CulturedBadass: Though more on the goofy and wacky side, Yakko is the most media and literature literate of the trio. He is also shown to be capable of speaking ''proper and actual Japanese'', as opposed to the racist and stereotyped barely-Asian-sounding gibberish that is unfortunate norm in western cartoons.

* AllDrummersAreAnimals: Whenever drums are needed, such as in a {{Rimshot}} gag or "Little Drummer Warners", he's the one who plays them--which could be explained by this trope, [[FridgeBrilliance the fact that he's based on Ringo]], or both.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's a sweet-natured kid, but he's also perfectly willing to mallet anyone who annoys him enough. And when he gets ''REALLY'' mad...watch out.
* BigEater: As the theme song states, "Wakko packs away the snacks". While his siblings Yakko and Dot normally go after the sweet stuff, Wakko's the type to gobble up everything in the refrigerator, and then eats the fridge itself!.
* BritishAccents: Wakko has a Liverpool accent that was modeled after Music/RingoStarr. Originally, Jess Harnell modeled the Liverpudlian accent after Music/JohnLennon, but he decided to go with Ringo instead because Wakko was shorter than the others. Either way, he liked it, the people auditioning him loved it, and it made it on the show.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's only 7 according to the "HelloNurse" song, but writers have dismissed this because he only said it in order to rhyme with "heaven". The WordOfGod [[note]]in this case, from Tom Ruegger[[/note]] is that the Warners' ages aren't specified beyond "not old enough to date". 14, 11, and 9 respectively.

* BewareTheQuietOnes: He's the most stoic of the group and is probably the most level-headed, as well. That being said, [[HairTriggerTemper Pesto]] is actually scared of him when he gets serious. Perhaps best shown in "Raging Bird". [[CurbStompBattle He's on the verge of losing a boxing match against Prettyboy Robin]] but the moment he starts flirting with his girlfriend, he ''breaks'' him with a single punch.
