* BigBad: Baikinman, although he occasionally gets usurped by beings who're far more malicious and destructive than him, but even then he's usually the one who creates and unleashes them upon the world, sometimes on accident.

* BigBadEnsemble: Baikinman and whomever the MonsterOfTheWeek is...that is until said monster turns on him and and decides to ruin his day, too.

Added DiffLines:

* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Every movie has one; an essentially blank entity that's immensely powerful and mindlessly wreaking havoc, serving more or less as a "final obstacle" for Anpanman to break through than an actual villain, let alone a character.

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: The robots and monsters Anpanman fights in some episodes and at the climaxes of the movies are the only creatures he outright kills, as they're either machines of Baikinman's that have broken free of his control and are wreaking havoc, or a non-sentient being that only knows how to destroy. Since Anpanman has to kill said robot/monster to save the day, the writers try to make them as blank or as deplorable as possible; the robot/monster in question's either a soulless entity that has no feelings or personality, or a CompleteMonster who's utterly irredeemable, so you won't feel bad it has to die.

Since Anpanman has to kill said robot/monster to save the day, the writers try to make them as blank as possible; the robot/monster has no feelings or personality, and exists solely to cause trouble, so you won't feel bad for it once it meets its end.

* HarmlessVillain: Baikinman can somewhat relate to this trope, although he uses violence. He never seems to really want to kill anyone, though situations make it look like he wants too, so that someone can be saved by the heroes. He also never becomes the ''true'' BigBad since the monster or robot he controls usually becomes independable and also hurts Baikinman. Since Anpanman will probably kill the monster/robot, they try to make it as blank as can be. The monster/robot has no feelings nor personality, so you won't feel bad about it. He would probably [[KickTheDog kick Cheese]]. Or at least [[PokeThePoodle poke Rare Cheese]].

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Every movie has one. An out of control big bad who wants to do nothing but destroy you and thus it is the only thing allowed to be killed or die within the Anpanman universe.

Added DiffLines:

* FingerlessHands: Most of the characters don't any visible fingers aside from a thumb. The only time they show fingers are in closeups.
** Strangely, characters in the early episodes have visible fingers, though this gone after the initial episodes were done airing.


Added DiffLines:

* LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy: The series is devoid of humans, not counting the characters that are humanistic as they are fairy-esque creatures. Humans do exists, just not in the main series (eg. the edutainment specials.)

* AlienAmongUs: Baikinman, Dokinchan and her sister Kokinchan are aliens, yet we have no clue how life is at their home planet. We have seen the planet from a distance though, and it is a red planet with craters and such, so it doesn't look livable at all. They travel with retro-looking [=UFOs=] (they call it a UFO themselves) or with some type of spotted egg, which only Dokinchan, Kokinchan, and baby Baikinman are seen using.

** There was an episode the year before where Baikinman wishes that he can beat Anpanman, which Nazobo shows up and sends him, Anpanman, Dokinchan, and Horrorman to a dream world.

* ArchEnemy: ANPANMAN AND BAIKINMAN...duh
* ArtEvolution: Well, the show has been airing since 1988, so of course the show looks somewhat more dynamic and the animation smoother. Anpanman's nose got somewhat smaller, and his eyes became round dots instead of ellipses. Dokinchan's eyes were first elliptical, but quickly evolved into half circles. And of course, the lines and colors become much clearer.
