* ActualPacifist: Hates guns and violence in general. The amount of fights he participates in over eleven seasons can be counted on one hand. He even refused to fire back at North Korean soldiers when he and Col. Potter were pinned down in a ditch.

* ActualPacifist: Hates guns and violence in general. The amount of fights he participates in over eleven seasons can be counted on one hand. He even refused to fire back at North Korean soldiers when he and Col. Potter were pinned down in a ditch. Potter, naturally, calls him out on his bullheadedness in this specific situation, and convinces him to at least just fire ''into the air'' to scare them off.

* PapaWolf: He fills in as a father to Radar, but the "Wolf" part comes in when Margaret's distant father comes to visit. When he sees her father's lack of tangible approval and Margaret's [[WellDoneSonGuy need for his respect]], he absolutely lays into the man. And when someone in the 4077 is sending reports to I-Corps about how non-regulation the camp is, the pain in his voice when he tells Hawkeye and BJ about this is heartbreaking. He's absolutely ''livid'' when he finds out his son-in-law had an affair on a business trip.

* NiceShoes: Later in the series he started wearing a pair of Converse All-Star sneakers.

* NotHimself: About once per season toward the end of the show's run, there'd be an episode in which the usually even-tempered Potter would take a sharp left turn into GrumpyOldMan territory, usually brought on by some personal or marital crisis.

** Also his surgical skills. He's overwhelmed by the frenzied pace of "meatball" surgery, and can't adapt readily ("I do one thing at at a time, I do it ''very'' well, and then I move on"). But when a soldier comes in needing an operation the other surgeons have barely ''heard'' of before, Winchester steps up and carries it off ''flawlessly''.

Later in the series, he chastises a substitute doctor for being too slow, having adapted to "meatball" surgery himself, showing he adapted to the pace.

* LawfulStupid: When commanding, he discovered that the "M" in "M.A.S.H." stood for "mobile". So he naturally decided to move the entire camp 100 feet down the road... and then, the next day, moved it ''back''.

So he naturally decided to move the entire camp 100 feet down the road... and then, the next day, moved it ''back''. For context, the camp is supposed to ''move'' with the front lines, not whenever the commanding officer feels like it.

* MistakenForGay: The episode "The Chosen People" has a scene where Frank is on the phone with another Major from headquarters. After bitching about the slipshod way things are being run at the 4077th, Frank tells the other officer, "You're my kinda fella... Hey, maybe we can get together sometime? I have a feeling that we're very much alike." While [[NewhartPhonecall we only see/hear Frank's side of the conversation]], it's clear from his subsequent, horrified reaction that the guy propositioned him.
