** The titular character's parents got lost during an adventure at sea, so he was raised by his grandmother. (The origin story about this explains that this is why she lives on that ridiculously high mountain she wants to be as far away from the sea as possible, since the sea had taken all of her family, save Bamse.) [[spoiler:Bamse's parents were later found to be alive and well, although on a DesertedIsland, where they preferred to stay, helping the local populace with various medical issues.]]
** Oh boy, Vargen, full stop. One story that deals with his childhood reveals that [[spoiler:his parents died in a forest fire but managed to save him by putting him in a basket and sending it down a river, where he was found by a trio of criminals, that reluctantly raised him, though they weren't exactly ideal parents. Aside from being abusive, they also taught him to steal.]]

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Two characters fit into this in Vargen's sad backstory. The first one is a lady, who recognizes the very young Vargen as the boy, who helped a gang of thieves with stealing her purse, so she calls the shop where Vargen works and gets him fired. And there is also the shop-keeper himself, who tells poor Vargen "once a thief, always a thief" before he fires him. None of these two characters had more than a few lines, but by refusing to give a young orphan a second chance, they were the ones who made Vargen become the most infamous criminal in the area, until Bamse was able to make him reform many years later.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:In the first panel of "Reinard's Final Haul" observant readers may note a copy of [[ArthurConanDoyle A.C. Doyle's]] [[Literature/SherlockHolmes "The Final Problem"]]. In the climax of the story, Reinard and Skalman falls down a waterfall in what can only be a tribute to the novel. Skalman's shell protects him. Reinard however...]]

*** Mind you, in a 2016 story he actually got a bit badass, using his burglar skills to steal a necklace from a nasty rich person and giving it to the father of a poor wolf girl who reminded him of himself as a child.
* TheDitz: Stollen, one of Captain Buster's pirate crew. His name even means more or less that. Among other things, he has managed to sink their ship at least twice through seriously inexpert gunnery (once firing the cannon through the ship's side below water level and once straight into the air so that the cannonball smashed through the bottom of the ship when it came down).

* BerserkButton: Do not threaten Bamse's children, and do not try to bully people weaker than you when Bamse is around. He can and will knock anyone around [[note]albeit without physical harm[[/note]] until they learn their lesson(s).

* CoolSword: Mostly subverted, since Bamse doesn't like weapons. Any story including a sword is likely to include Bamse breaking the sword and saying "I want to do that to all swords." "Bamse och de tre svärden" ("Bamse and the Three Swords") even made it a plot point: Bamse was offered three magical swords, but refused them all. As it turned out, [[spoiler:had he accepted one, he would have been doomed.]]

The cast has gradually expanded as the series went on, the original PowerTrio of Bamse the bear (mostly the BigGuy even though he's small... almost verging on a CuteBruiser considering that most other adult characters are actually much larger and GentleGiant) Skalman the turtle (AbsentMindedProfessor sometimes bordering on MadScientist and also TheSpock) and Lille Skutt the rabbit (FragileSpeedster and CowardlySidekick, although he has enough incidents of bravery that he approaches TheSoCalledCoward) and to some extent their friends and antagonists. The second CastHerd is made up mainly of the triplets of the titular character (artistic Brum, TomBoy Nalle-Maja and BadassBookworm Teddy) and to some extent their friends. But over the years the series has attracted LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters.

* WickedWitch: Several witches have turned up as villains. Hia-Hia with the enchanting laughter is probably the best known of them (and since her HeelFaceTurn at the end of her first story, she occasionally shows up as a good character).
