* CoolOldGuy: Uncle Jam probably qualifies, being the backbone of the main cast and constantly baking new heads (among other things) for the heroes. But an even better example was probably Takashi Yanase himself: Even at 94 years old, he continued to make public appearances and crank out book after book, right up until his death. This man was a colleague of OsamuTezuka (nine years Yanase's ''junior'') when both were still relatively unknown.

* ComicTrio: Tendonman, Katsudonman and Kamameshidon. Those guys also had episodes for every individual, thus making them less dependant to eachother to appear on screen. But they are usually together, singing their personal songs, and often are arguing about 'who is better'. They are the more main characters who, despite the little roll the play, always will appear in the movies.

* ClipShow: Two of the film shorts "Dokin-chan's Doki-Doki Calendar" and "Anpanman and Your Happy Birthday".



** Speaking of Baikinman, many of the early episodes have him being defeated by washing him with soap or brushing him with toothpaste. This is later replaced with him being punched at the end. Mushibakinman later gets the weakness of being brushed with toothpaste, which makes sense.

* JerkAss: Though Dokinchan is a really nice person to everyone else, her behaviour to Baikinman is really mean. Ofcourse, 3/5 of the episodes she's just a nice companion to him and they act as ThoseTwoBadGuys. She is happy and says 'thank you' when he obtained or did something for her, but when he doesn't, she doesn't even want to hear why or what happened. And he really get's in a lot of trouble for trying to do or get what she wants. She should just thank him anyway for trying so hard. And besides, she should actually be told HER OWN mistakes far more often.

* SpoiledBrat: Dokinchan, although she is not rich or anything. She is demanding, inpatient and goes on rampage for not getting what she wants. But she knows she can get Baikinman to get her anything, though he usually fails or she is not happy with what he got eventually. She has never been punished for this behaviour and also haven't changed for the 20 years she's on screen. So why doesn't Baikinman kick her out?

* VillainEpisode: There are several of them, even villian movies. But it was impossible in such a show as this to not have them, since the villain are [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold not completly evil]].

* ActionGirl
** Rollpanna
** Melonpanna can be counted as one for being one of the main superheroes. Yet ''her'' punch doesn't inflict damage, but causes the victim to get in a trance of affection and is thus invulnerable for a short time. This means she also can't 'finish' the fight herself, since her punch can't blow anyone away. She still is a superhero and flies around as much as the rest of the other superheroes, so she still is an action girl.
** The minor but recurring character Tekka no Maki-chan is a more mature example.



* MerchandiseDriven: Taken to the extreme. There has been Anpanman merchandise about on every children products imagined.

* ContinuityNod: While the series doesn't rely a whole on continuity, they do often make references in the form flashbacks. Best examples would be the episodes with Furudokei-san, where he'll obverse the memories of past events the characters had in the shows run.

Heck, there was even an episode where Dokinchan revisited him and she still remembers her encounter with him from before!
