* AdaptationalHeroism: Giovanni is portrayed more sympathetically compare to [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} various other]] [[Manga/PokemonSpecial adaptations]], [[{{Pokemon}} including the games.]] While a villain nonetheless, here he is mostly motivated by [[CorruptCorporateExecutive business and greed]] rather than personal power and [[TakeOverTheWorld world domination]]. This is best demonstrated in his reaction after [[spoiler: losing to Red. In the games, Giovanni disbands Team Rocket because [[MyGreatestFailure he feels unworthy to be its leader after losing to a young kid three times]] and swears to become a better trainer. It was later revealed in ''[=HeartGold=]'' and ''[=SoulSilver=]'' that he had never truly abandoned his old ambitions and sought to revive Team Rocket after his training. In ''Origins'', Giovanni remembers the fun of Pokémon battles from his childhood, and realizes that treating Pokémon as tools for business was wrong all along. He then disbanded Team Rocket to [[TheAtoner atone for his mistakes]], and to create a new path for himself and his Pokémon.]]

* AdaptationalVillainy: Blue's characterization is [[{{Jerkass}} extra dickish]] compared to his in-game portrayal. Most of his dialogue is him insulting Red, Red's Pokémon, Team Rocket and so on, while being a DirtyCoward.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's an arrogant, condescending asshole, sure - but it's clear that he does view Red as a good friend on some level.

* MythologyGag: Among other things, his team when going up against the Elite Four (Charizard, Persian, Dodrio, Scyther, Lapras and Jolteon) was the same as that of series creator Satoshi Tajiri when he cleared the game for the first time.

* DeadpanSnarker: Blue mocks Red's choices and actions through the series, calling him predictable or childish. The most notable example is when he choose his starter. When Professor Oak asks him if he would choose a Starter based on his name, Blue simply scoffs it as being a silly reason and simply chose his starter, [[NoExceptYes Squirtle, because a Water-type has the advantage over the Fire-type Charmander]] [[labelnote:Explanation]][[DubInducedPlotHole This makes more sense in the Japanese version, where Blue is called Green and thus he enforces his reasoning by not choosing the Grass-type Bulbasaur.]][[/labelnote]]

Added DiffLines:

* BrainsAndBrawn: Brains to Blue's Brawn. He's more focused on filling the Pokedex whereas Blue just wants to battle his way to the top.


Added DiffLines:

* BrainsAndBrawn: The Brawn to Red's Brains--he's less interested in filling the Pokedex and more interested in battling his way to the top.


Added DiffLines:


!!Mewtwo

----
* AmbiguousGender: Though if it's anything like it's game counterpart, it most likely [[NoBiologicalSex doesn't have one to begin with]].
* AnimalisticAbomination: Acts more like an uncontrollable monster than the sophisticated and misunderstood creature it is in the main series, and is already a manmade unnatural creature that went horribly awry.
* AxCrazy: It attacks Red and Charizard pretty much the moment they show up to challenge it.
* BerserkButton: It wasn't friendly to begin with, but the first time Red throws an Ultra Ball at it? It's ''enraged''.
* FinalBoss
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Its purpose is largely just to show how good a trainer Red is.
* PerpetualFrowner: It's always angry.
* TheWorfEffect: It took down ''Articuno!''
