* MeaningfulRename: Being called Astro is the first step to him distancing himself from his former identity as Toby Tenma, when he believed himself to be human.



* NighInvulnerable: While he's bothered by the things he faces, very few are able to do more than cause him a little pain. For instance, being subject to two [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion Guns]] and a MacrossMissileMassacre could only knock him out and dirty his clothes rather than dealing lasting damage.



* SespedelianLoquaciousness: Toby goes into TechnoJargon while speaking to President Stone, causing the latter (who's a college dropout) to feel inadequate and force Toby to stay behind.

The version of Astro created for the movie. Instead of perishing in a car accident, Toby Tenma was ''vaporized'' by accident after sneaking into the testing grounds for the Peacekeeper military robot to spend time with his father. Heartbroken, the elder Tenma rebuilt Toby as a robot with all of his memories as well as his personality, powering the robotic Toby with the Blue Core, a source of endless positive energy and the opposite of the negative Red Core that powered the Peacekeeper.

* Adorkable: Gushes over his powers and is simply adorable as he figures out how to use them.
* AllLovingHero: Even when Hamegg forced him to fight Zog and repeatedly tortured him with a taser, Astro still refused to the evil ringleader die.

* ChildProdigy: The original Toby casually solved complex physics problems and walks out the quiz room just a few minutes into an exam. Solving four-dimensional calculus problems is his best chance for bonding time with his father, who even states that they're his favorite (but Astro demonstrates more indifference despite his ability to solve them). Crosses into InsufferableGenius for a scene where one of his classmates threw a textbook at him as he walked out the door. In fact, one of the first scenes of the movie is when Toby rewires his robot butler to get him to drive to the Ministry of Science despite his father's orders to the contrary, leaving the poor robot loopy all the while. Astro takes this further by constructing numerous small flying wooden airplanes based on da Vinci's theories and created a triplane that splits into three smaller planes with no apparent difficulty.

* BackFromTheDead: His ReplacementGoldfish status aside, he pulls this off twice, [[spoiler:the first he's rebooted after Tenma had a change of heart, the second when Zog revives him after dying in the Peacekeeper.]]

* FakeAmerican: While Metro City is a floating city all on its own, Freddie Highmore is suppressing his British accent for the role.

--> '''Toby:''' Absolutely. Though I'm sure you'll agree that the latest D-Class Interceptor line of deployment to target system is quite old-fashioned.

* ParentalAbandonment: Most of his problems can be traced back to his father's own hands-off parenting style and {{Workholic}} tendencies, leaving Toby (and Astro) starved for attention and thus causing them to act out against his wishes.

* GoodIsNaughty: Although he's a nice kid, he's not above doing questionable and even shady things to get what he wants, rewiring his robot butler to take him to the Ministry and stealing a pass key by lying to a guard in order to get access to the test site.

* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: Can eat, sleep, think, feel and is otherwise no different from a human at a glance. Having Toby's memories and personality means that he truly believed he was human for the first quarter of the movie.
