* BeenThereShapedHistory: In a year-long arc to celebrate the new millennium, Bamse, Lille Skutt and Skalman travel through history from 1000 to 2000. Naturally, a few of these events occur.
** Skalman influences the painting of Mona Lisa (apparently her infamous smile came from her realizing he lets an alarm clock dictate his sleeping and eating schedule) and helps invent the cinematograph and aeroplane.
** A special shout out to Lille Skutt, who helps break Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart out of a bout of writer's block by... nudging an ink bottle, causing ink blots to spill onto his sheet music and accidentally composing the opening bars.

* BadassGrandma: Bamse's grandmother. One time some of the strongest villains tried to prevent her from returning home from a trip so Bamse wouldn't have any dunderhonug before they could deal with him. Grandma responded by forcibly moving them out of the way. She also lives by herself at the very top of a very tall mesa but has no trouble walking up and down the winding path on an almost daily basis.
* BadassPacifist: Of course.

** Vargen was an orphan who was raised by criminals. He fell in love with a girl from the right side of the railway tracks and made a sincere effort at reforming, only to be falsely accused of a crime anyway. As he realised that society would always consider him a thief, he decided that he might as well be one.
** Krösus, though he grew up in a rich family, was TheUnfavorite whose father would neglect him and spoil his brother instead, thus leading to his obsession with making money.

* HeroicSacrifice: In the story where Bamse and Skalman enter the book of fairy tales, Skalman discovers that they only have enough of the potion for one of them to return to their own world. Instead of telling Bamse this, he tricks him into drinking it and resigns himself to staying in the fairyland forever. [[spoiler:Fortunately, the Good Fairy is impressed by his sacrifice and sends him back to his friends.]]

The series details the adventures of various FunnyAnimal characters as they go about their lives. The series is known for having a [[{{Anvilicious}} strong moral stance]], while at the same time often presenting rather dark issues or complex problems in a way suitable for very young children (A famous "Letter from the Editor"-page started with "Your parents don't want you to know about this just yet, but I think that it is important that you learn about this" and then moved on to explain ''the holocaust'' to children.)

** 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.
