Added DiffLines:

* ThoseTwoGuys: Him and Chiaotzu, of course, but he also gets lumped into this with Yamcha - particularly in America, where ''Dragon Ball Z'' was aired first. While major characters in the original series, in ''Z'' he and Yamcha are just the two human fighters who pop up when a battle is going on.
* TrueCompanions: Averted. Tenshinhan and Chiaotzu only associate with the Z-fighters when there's a crisis and seem to have no interest in them socially. They didn't attend the reunion party at the beginning of the Saiyan saga and after the Cell games Tenshinhan tells the others that they'll probably never meet again. Tenshinhan and Goku don't even meet face-to-face in ''Z'' until Goku returns to Earth at the beginning of the Android saga, eight years after their last meeting at the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai.

* DitzyGenius: Especially in the English dub. She's one of the brightest minds in the world, being able to make brilliant inventions out of junk in minutes, however she lacks a lot of logical judgement. This is best shown in the Red Ribbon Army Saga where she invents a high-tech spy drone and sees the Goku is planning to attack the Red Ribbon Army HQ. After the drone gets blown up she realizes they need to call for help, but she complains they don't have a phone. Turtle then points out that if she could make a drone then a phone shouldn't be any trouble for her, to which she gets the point and sets to work making the phone.

* AscendedMeme: His infamous death pose is referenced every once in a while. In ''Super's'' Episode 70, he even makes it, crater and all (alive, this time), when he steals a base.



* ThrowTheDogABone: Dragon Ball Super Episode 70 is one long (and long deserved) one for Yamcha. He still gets his ass kicked and there was nothing important at stake in the first place, but he still ended up being what saved the day and received glowing respect and acclaim from the rest of the Z characters in attendance. Even #18 and Bulma blatantly vocalized their newfound respect for Yamcha.

* ADayInTheLimelight: In ''Dragon Ball Super's'' 70th episode, Champa decides to play baseball against Beerus and brings their universes' fighters together to do it. As someone who ''actually plays baseball for a living'', '''Yamcha''' is the only one besides umpires Whis and Vados to know a darn thing about what they're doing. While he suffers a ton of AmusingInjuries he manages to give the other team a run for it's money by stealing bases in true bandit style and wins the game by stealing home during a battle between the Gods of Destruction...despite ending up in his memetic death pose to do so. We also see how his training affects his baseball game, since he uses Wolf Fang Fist and Spirit Ball to expertly control any ball he pitches.

* LikeBrotherAndSister: Her relationship with Goku is this. They have been friends since childhood and neither has ever expressed romantic interest in the other in-universe. The closest they ever came was when Bulma saw Goku as an adult for the first time and remarked on how handsome he'd turned out, and even that could be interpreted as sisterly affection rather than genuine romantic interest. Although, Bulma later admitted on Namek that she wished Goku's was her boyfriend. She also puts more faith in Goku to solve the current crisis even more than her own husband.

* ComedicSociopathy: Mostly in the first story arc where he tries to kill a 12 years old Goku and robs people for a living. He also planned to steal the Dragon Balls and cripple Goku by grabbing his tail, all just to wish away his fear of women. So, him being constantly humiliated by having Bulma grab him and his amusing injures were a joy to watched.

* LineageComesFromTheFather: Unlike Future Trunks his personality and demeanor are more like Vegeta. At the same time, he is good with hands like Bulma and his grandfather.

* MagneticHero: She was this in the first story arc of ''Dragon Ball''. She gets Goku to join her side by promising him a grand adventure and to see the world for the first time. She brides and then later blackmails Oolong on her quest for the Dragon Balls, and Yamcha develops a crush on her and follows them so he can used the Dragon Balls for himself to wish away his fear of women, [[FireForgedFriends eventually forming a friendship with them]].

%%* CoolOldLady: At the end of ''GT'''s timeskip



%%* DressingAsTheEnemy: In ''GT''.
* FamilyThemeNaming: Pan is an [[UpToEleven triple-themed]] name: the food puns for Gohan's side of the family, the devil/Satan theme from Videl's family[[note]]Especially as Pan's horns and goat legs were the inspiration of classical depictions of the devil[[/note]], and the musical theme from Piccolo who has been extremely close to Gohan and often babysits Pan. There's also, arguably, a fourth that references the Briefs family (as Bulma has been like a CoolBigSis to Goku since childhood) since her name is also the first three letters in panty.

* GooGooGodlike: Baby Pan can not only fly, but her just powering up destroys Pilaf's battle machine. She's also strong enough to carry Pilaf's gang back to Earth after they shot themselves into the stratosphere.

* HeroicLineage: She comes from ''two'' heroic lineages. Her grandfather, Goku, is a warrior who saved the Earth countless times and her father saved the world from Cell and was critical to everyone's survival during the Saiyan Invasion and Namek. Her other grandfather, Mr. Satan, is a FakeUltimateHero, but he is seen as the world's savior and really did help save the world from Cell and Buu. Her mother is a BadassNormal who used to help the police fight crime on a regular basis without any Ki or superpowers.

* PintsizedPowerhouse: She already possesed tremendous strength and the ability to fly by the time she was four years old. In fact, she's shown to be quite powerful as a baby as well.
* RetGone: Inverted, see Goten's entry.
