* EveryoneHasStandards: Wimpy is a mooch, cowardly, selfish, lazy, and has stabbed Popeye in the back on several occasions, but he absolutely refuses to kill under any circumstances. He's also greatly angered at the idea of anyone poaching Goons.

%%* RubberHoseLimbs* RubberHoseLimbs: Done as a visual effect, and a quite characteristic one, every time she waves her arms while calling Popeye for help.



* AdaptationalBadass: Though he always looks physically imposing, Bluto's actual strength varies between continuities. In some of them, he is a weakling for all his size and is forced to resort to trickery; in others, he is stronger or at least equal to Popeye in their natural state; and in the rare ones, he is a behemot who is a match for Popeye even after the latter eats his spinach. Most adaptations typically run with the second interpretation, though he has never stopped showing a ludicrous glass chin at some points.
* AdaptationalHeroism: He is usually stated to be former best friends and Navy buddies with Popeye before Olive got between them, and perhaps for that reason, there are episodes and adaptations in which they have a WorthyOpponent or FriendlyEnemy relationship, if not outright friendship, at least until something gets between them again. The best example is ''Popeye's Voyage: The Quest for Pappy'', where he's a nice guy, best friends with Popeye again, and when Olive starts hitting on him (not knowing she's being mind-controlled by the Sea Hag) he turns her down.

* {{Jerkass}}: Womanizing, crude, an all-around butthead.
* LargeHam: Bluto enjoys hamming it up.



* VocalDissonance: Due to him rotating through several actors in the series, Bluto has gone through a fairly wide range of different sounding voices. His initial voice, William Pennell, gave him a very deep, raspy sounding voice. Then Gus Wickie, his second actor, ditched the raspiness for a very deep BadassBaritone. Pinto Colvig, his third voice actor...basically gave him a very odd voice that sounds like his voiced for [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarves Grumpy.]] His most prominent voice actor, Jackson Beck, eschewed all of the previous voice characerizations for a smart-alecky wise-guy voice.
