* HopelessSuitor: Omitsu seems to like him enough that they ''could'' be an item, but he's to shy and she's too easily distracted by... [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny everything]] for him to have a real chance with her.

* OneManArmy: While he generally always has a fair few number of allies backing him up, Goemon has proven to not only be capable of beating all of them, [[HumongousMecha Impact]] included, in a fight and has regularly stormed across Japan and saved the day by himself. While Yae may be more rational than he is, he's the only one who gets things done.

* {{Camp}}: Frequently ''skips'' instead of walking, attacks with streamers and ballet and has a rather effeminate voice. Despite this, he's a known womanizer.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: His original origin story? In Ganbare Goemon 2, he was a female ninja cursed into the body of an old fat man. At the end of the game, the curse is broken and she and Goemon are implied to have become a couple. This becomes CanonDiscontinuity at the beginning of the next game, though. In the reboot series, though, s/he is once more a girl with a crush on Goemon.

* {{Gonk}}: A light example, but compared to the other leads Ebisumaru is quite weird looking.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Her manga counterpart, so very much. Her {{Kawaiiko}} facade was already starting to slip during ''Legend of the Mystical Ninja'', but by ''Ganbare Goemon 3'' it had completely shattered. Her anti-fans believe that she's like this in every 'verse to facilitate Goemon pairing off with someone more "deserving."

* ClingyJealousGirl: In the TV anime and manga, though she's much more violent about it in the latter. Ironically, Omitsu lacks this behavior in the games - considering the way Goemon acts in the ending of ''Ganbare Goemon 3'' and the entirety of ''Kuru Nara Koi'', HE'S the overprotective one.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: In Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, she shows up at the Kyuushu Bridge just as Goemon and 'co are heading there on a dumpling delivery service. Not only is this impressive as the trek from Oedo to Kyuushu is nearly the '''entire width''' of Japan, but it also means Omitsu fought off [[EverythingTryingToKillYou dangerous enemies]] while carrying food upright by [[OneManArmy herself]]! It even gets {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by the gang, who notes she must be tougher than she looks.

* RoboticSpouse: Invoked as a throwaway gag during the opening of ''Ganbare Goemon 4'', in which he tries to pass a cross-dressing Sasuke off as his wife. In the manga he was given a ([[MayDecemberRomance young]]) human wife instead.

* {{Badass}}: Goemon is tough enough to beat [[HumongousMecha Impact]] in a straight fight.



* {{Badass}}: Pretty much considered to be the series' designated one. He's a hyper serious robot ninja with super speed and lots of useful gadgets. He's always up there with Goemon in terms of usefulness.

* MightyGlacier: Slow, a terrible jumper, and has awkward and strange skills, but has the most health, the highest starting money and the highest damage output of the main four.

* FragileSpeedster: He's both the fastest and the best jumper, but has the lowest health and the weakest attacks. His ranged weapon, a firecracker, also tends to be the worst one.

* {{Badass}}: Goemon is tough enough to beat [[HumongousMecha Impact]] in a straight fight.



* {{Bishonen}}: Parodied and very much an InformedAbility. Several characters go on and on about his charming good looks when, while not nearly as ugly as some of the characters, Goemon's pretty average looking. Due to the nature of the series, most of the characters who refer to him as a bishonen are [[CampGay men]], most notably Ebisumaru.



* DoggedNiceGuy: Willing to risk everything to save Omitsu, who frequently seems unaware of his attraction to her.



* TheHero
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Ebisumaru, strangely enough.
* HopelessSuitor: Omitsu seems to like him enough that they ''could'' be an item, but he's to shy and she's too easily distracted by... [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny everything]] for him to have a real chance with her.
* HotBlooded: Easily annoyed and generally speaks through shouting.



* JackOfAllStats: Always has the most balanced stats and versatile moveset.



* OneManArmy: While he generally always has a fair few number of allies backing him up, Goemon has proven to not only be capable of beating all of them, [[HumongousMecha Impact]] included, in a fight and has regularly stormed across Japan and saved the day by himself. While Yae may be more rational than he is, he's the only one who gets things done.
* OnlySaneMan: Pretty much forced into this role by being a fairly standard hero living in CloudCuckooland, though his hotbloodedness makes him less of one than Yae.



* PlayingWithFire: A signture technique of his is turning coins into fiery projectiles.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to all of his companions. Unusual for an OnlySaneMan.




to:

* VitriolicBestBuds: With Ebisumaru. Goemon is frequently annoyed and weirded out by his man-crush on him but seems to consider him his most trusted ally.



* AmbiguouslyGay: He loves the ladies, but his admiration for Goemon is rather questionable at times. He's definitely not so ambiguous in the manga, though...

* {{Gonk}}: A light example, but compared to the other leads Ebisumaru is quite weird looking.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Goemon, though the heterosexual part is iffy.



* TheLancer: Goemon's most frequent traveling companion.



* PluckyComicRelief: While the entire world is incredibly weird, Ebisumaru is the only one of the main four who isn't relatively normal.




to:

* VitriolicBestBuds: His constant hitting on Goemon combined with Goemon's frequent annoyance at him makes it quite strange that they're virtually inseparable.



* TheLancer: A calm, rational law-enforcer in contrast to Goemon's HotBlooded thief.



* OnlySaneMan: Even more so than Goemon, whose hotbloodedness frequently gets in the way.
* PoliceAreUseless: Despite being one of the most rational and competent people in the series, Yae and the organization she works for are virtually useless unless aided by Goemon.



* {{Badass}}: Pretty much considered to be the series' designated one. He's a hyper serious robot ninja with super speed and lots of useful gadgets. He's always up there with Goemon in terms of usefulness.
* TheComicallySerious: While he's nowhere near as goofy as most of the supporting cast, Sasuke isn't rational enough to be an OnlySaneMan alongside Goemon and Yae, frequently succumbing to the antics of those around him due to his gullibility.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: His first meeting with Goemon was in the heat of battle when he thought that Iga was being attacked. After that they've been lifelong friends.



* MrFanservice: To sum things up, he's the fangirls' equivalent of Yae.

to:

* MrFanservice: To sum things up, he's FragleSpeedster: He's both the fangirls' equivalent fastest and the best jumper, but has the lowest health and the weakest attacks. His ranged weapon, a firecracker, also tends to be the worst one.

of Yae.the group after Goemon despite being about half his size.


Added DiffLines:

* TheSmartGuy: Being a robot, he has the most tech know how of the team.
* TheStoic: Justified by being a robot.
* UndyingLoyalty: To both the Wise Man and Goemon.


Added DiffLines:

* TheChick: A noncombatant who generally either serves as moral support or a motivator.


Added DiffLines:

* GoldfishPoopGang: While he ''does'' always put up a pretty good fight, he's treated more or less as a joke.
* HollyWoodCyborg
* UnknownRival: Considers Goemon to be his archrival. This sentiment is not mutual.
