* PunnyName: A play on "olive oil". The rest of her family falls into this as well. {{Lampshaded}} in the live-action film, when Popeye rhetorically asks if she'd rather name the baby, "Baby Oyl".

Added DiffLines:

* WellDoneSonGuy: Despite his father's attitude, Popeye loves his pappy dearly, and vice versa. So insulting him is ''not'' a good idea.

Added DiffLines:

* LastNameBasis: Most people who know him just call him Wimpy, although a few women who've been romantically involved with him, including the Sea Hag, will call him Wellington.

* BreakoutCharacter: Popeye came out of nowhere as a oneshot character for an already long established newspaper comic, and wound up becoming so popular that he not only took over the strip as the main character (sidelining its original lead, Ham Gravy, who eventually vanished altogether) but became one of the most iconic comic and cartoon characters of all time. At his peak in the 30's, he was even more popular than MickeyMouse, and he continued to remain that way in several countries.

%%* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass

to:

%%* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's a bit of a goofball and is easily knocked around, but give him a can of spinach and watch him (sometimes literally) become a OneManArmy.



* OneManArmy / TheJuggernaut: ''Especially'' after he eats his spinach.

* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Ghosts?]]: They seem to be the only thing he's really afraid of. He once turned down a free ship after discovering it was haunted.
* WouldNotHitAGirl: He once stopped fighting Alice the Goon after discovering she was female (a baby goon came up and exclaimed [[MonsterIsAMommy "Mama!"]]).

%%* DamselInDistress* DamselInDistress: Popeye saves Olive from Bluto/Brutus...Subverted at least once in an old cartoon - Bluto enters Olive's room, and a scuffle breaks out, Olive is crying for help - when Popeye enters, Olive is still yelling while clubbing an unconscious Bluto with a skillet.



* {{ArchEnemy}}: To Popeye.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Some shorts feature Bluto and Popeye as business rivals. For example, one had the two of them competing for a military contract to build warships.
** In the Al Brodax short "Spinach Shortage", Bluto {{Expy}} Brutus monopolized Spinach and was withholding it to raise prices. While it's anyone's guess if he did anything illegal to obtain his spinach monopoly, it's still illegal to abuse monopoly even if it was obtained fair and square.

* DisproportionateRetribution / EvilIsPetty: In "Organ Grinder's Swing", he terrorizes Wimpy and his pet monkey by giving them a burning hot coin, throwing his furniture (including a burning hot grate) at them, and then resorting to smashing apart his grinder, all because he was annoyed by the music he's playing.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Completely self-centered and won't hesitate a moment to con his friends out of their food or money, but he's never malicious, and gets many PetTheDog moments.

%%* MadeOfIron

to:

%%* MadeOfIron* MadeOfIron: Popeye is nigh-unkillable, with or without eating his spinach. The Bobby London Popeye comics take this UpToEleven in the "Popeye's Apocalypse" story arc, where Popeye survives when '''all of existence''' is wiped out by the Supreme Jeep. His only explanation for this is "I eats me spinach."

Added DiffLines:

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Popeye has seen his fair share of high sea adventures in the comics, but in the cartoons (at least up until the World War II era shorts, where he rejoins the Navy), he was hardly ever on ships, or even anywhere near water in general.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In some appearances, he knocks the can of Spinach out of Popeye's hands before he can get a single morsel in his mouth. It doesn't help him for long, though.
