Dandy doesn't mind putting in massive amounts of effort when trying to capture aliens for registration but outside of that he is almost habitually against doing anything other than having a good time. His alien registering is also an example as he is clearly qualified for a variety of different jobs but sticks with it so he can get a massive payout for little work and indulge his vices as much as he pleases.
* ButtMonkey: The entire universe seems to delight in humiliating him and beating him up. Though it is not to the extent of Meow.

* CastingGag: In the dub--[[Anime/MichikoToHatchin a blonde-haired little girl who's much more mature than the adult she's traveling with...]]



* CastingGag: Take a good look to [[VideoGame/{{Catherine}} her name]] and her [[Creator/MiyukiSawashiro Japanese VA]], not to mention her background.

* CaptainSpaceDefenderOfEarth: Space Dandy is basically a caricature of many old school space heroes like ComicBook/BuckRogers.

* BadassBaritone: He has a deep voice in the English dub, but his Japanese voice is even deeper.



* ButtMonkey: The entire universe seems to delight in humiliating him and beating him up.

* ChivalrousPervert: Despite how much Dandy loves the women, he claims he doesn't look at porn. and in episode 19 he went after the cloudian who took Scarlet when he hears that Cloudians 'seduce then ditch' from QT.

* DeathGlare: In "The Search for the Phantom Space Ramen, Baby", after Dandy discovered who ate up his entire stash of emergency ramen. [[{{Understatement}} He was pissed, to say the least]].



* HeroesLoveDogs: He is surprisingly affectionate with the dog Laika. [[spoiler: And is very torn when she dies.]]

to:

* HeroesLoveDogs: He is surprisingly affectionate with the dog Laika.Laika, who he named "Pup". [[spoiler: And is very torn when she dies.]]



* HypocriticalHumor: Every time Dandy says or does something, he does the exact opposite - one example would be his claims in one episode that he doesn't look at porn, yet in the pilot episode he was reading a porn magazine. But since this is Dandy, it's all PlayedForLaughs.



* LargeHam: He tends to have exceptionally dramatic freak outs when [=BooBies=], woolongs or his life is on the line. And that's nothing compared to his propensity for randomly going off on a monologue of some sort, sometimes unprovoked, complete with dramatic flourishes of his hands and background scenery and music for emphasis.

** He also does this to an actual dog in "The Lonely Pooch Planet, Baby" [[spoiler: giving said dog the happiest moments of its life before it passes away]].



* SpitTake: Does this along with Meow in "The Search for the Phantom Space Ramen, Baby" after QT informs them they don't have money for the food bills.



* ButtMonkey: Meow has been on the receiving end of more than his fair share of AmusingInjuries. In the second episode alone, he gets ejected into space a couple times, smacked around by Dandy, and ultimately missed out on the greatest bowl of ramen to ever exist in this dimension or any other. [[TheyKilledKennyAgain He's also killed more than any other character]].

Added DiffLines:

* ImStandingRightHere: Twice in "Live with the Flow, Baby". QT and Dandy are concerned about Meow's claims of knowing a lot about unregistered aliens, so they discuss whether they should let him stay... within earshot of Meow. Then shortly after Meow protests [[EmbarrassingNickname being called "Meow"]], Dandy calls him a "space cat"... ''while still within earshot''.

Added DiffLines:

* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Ever since episode 1, Meow has become a permanent resident of the Aloha Oe, mooching off of Dandy and QT (his knowledge of the locations of unregistered aliens notwithstanding). At one point, this trope nearly earned him a permanent expulsion from the crew by Dandy, who was quite angry over having his entire emergency stash of ramen devoured in one go.

Added DiffLines:

* AirplaneArms: Has analogues in the form of flaps on her sides which seem to open as a sign of her physically expressing cheer. She keeps them open when she's running.

* GirlishPigtails: Has analogues to them on the top of her head.

* AnythingThatMoves: If it has a nice rump or bosom and isn't trying to kill him, Dandy will fall for it regardless of species or the placement of those coveted features.
** Even those features are negotiable. He once dated a tesseract.

* ChildHater: Claims to be one early on in episode 5, to an actual child (Adelie). [[spoiler:Averted later on, where he not only tracks down the girl's grandfather, but lets them go live their life in peace rather than taking her to the alien registry]].

* LetsGetDangerous: Whenever he brings out the [[TransformingMecha Hawaii Yankee]], his competence skyrockets. He's managed to go one-on-one with a {{Kaiju}} and bring it back for registration, outmaneuver two other mecha pilots before kicking their asses, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and assembled a working rocket out of nothing but scrap]].

* MistakenForBadass: The Gogol Empire views him as a credible threat. If he was ever a threat, it was usually due to dumb luck.
** This gets some extra evidence when the Jaicro Empire's leading general sees him as an ordinary guy, meaning Gogol horribly overestimated Dandy.

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Strikes up a conversation with Dandy, only to go running off in the middle of it after a dance party starts up in the middle of the restaurant. She still manages to remember his drink order. Maybe she was just getting bored of him boasting about himself.
** This is an enforced personality trait while working at [=BooBies=]; at breastertainment restaurants, the girls have to act super cheery and participate in whatever gimmick is going on. Just ask any ex or current waiter who's been forced to participate in clapping and singing "Happy Birthday" on the job.
