* TheAce: Generally considered the best all-around surgeon of the show. Occasionally Charles in later seasons would get the nod for his specialties, and even B.J. would show him up with a technique he didn't know. In one episode, he even conceded that BJ be the one to perform a tricky surgery as he had the most experience with it (i.e.: reading about it in a medical journal).

* DoesntLikeGuns: Or grenades, mines, anti-aircraft artillery, ammo dumps, tanks, the Korean War, or war in general. Basically he has nothing but hate for anything made specifically to kill another man. He is not hesitant to take this up with top brass or anyone supporting said war.

** And, of course, Hawkeye and Trapper deliberately induce this as part of their scheme to gaslight a visiting colonel in "The Ringbanger".



* PutOnABus: His offscreen crackup and departure at the start of Season 6. After losing it and attacking a general and his wife (mistaking them for Margaret and Donald) while on R&R in Tokyo, he's put under psychiatric observation. Then he's [[KarmaHoudini cleared of all charges]], [[RankUp promoted to Lieutenant Colonel]], and [[KickedUpstairs assigned to a VA hospital back in the States]]. Hawkeye and BJ understandably do not take the news of this well.

* BadassPacifist: He admits he can't hit the side of a barn with the army-issue handgun he carries, but his voice is enough to scare his men into submission.

* ShoutOut: Some people will note that the name "Radar" is a familiar holdover from their childhoods. That's because on ''Series/SesameStreet'', Baby Bear named his teddy bear "Radar", the show's obvious send-up to Radar and his own teddy.

Added DiffLines:

** It should be noted that while this is still standard operating procedure for US Military Medicine, Burns way of doing it was purely out of his distaste for anyone that wasn't an American. The triage priority however only applies when dealing with limited staff, and lots of critical patients. If an American or Allied soldier can wait, then a critical enemy soldier will go ahead of them. This is done for two reasons. 1. It shows how willing we are to treat people, regardless of faction, and 2. It allows Intelligence groups to glean information from them later. Dead men tell no tales after all.

** 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''.

* TheScrounger: He takes over the mantle from Radar along with the clerk's job. Radar may have been better at the paperwork angle (Potter mentions that Klinger's filing system makes no sense whatsoever) but Klinger is the better scrounger.
** Considering that Radar filed the maps for the minefield under 'B' for 'Boom', how much worse is Klinger?
