** Any given thing is practically guaranteed to have its name spelled out in gigantic letters, made all the more ridiculous for the fact that they live in a small village where everybody knows each other and there's only one of each business to begin with.

* {{Everything Talks}}: Particularly, the TalkingPoo.
to:
* {{Everything Talks}}: EverythingsBetterWithPenguins: ''Penguin'' Village. Subverted because no penguin actually ever appears in the series (except in one of the latest chapters when we discover that the mayor ''is'' a penguin). * EverythingTalks: Particularly, the TalkingPoo.

* {{Everything Talks}}: Particularly, TheFaceless: ** One of the TalkingPoo.contestants in the bike race at the end is a boy who never ever removes his helmet. He's also [[NoNameGiven nameless]]. ** The policeman with a [[StarWars Stormtrooper]] helmet may also count, both for Faceless and Nameless. * TheFaceOfTheSun: Here the sun is a living entity who smiles, talks and even sleeps. We even see it rising from the ocean horizon with a snorkel.

* {{Flanderization}}: Arale started out looking more like a 13 years old girl instead of the round chubby we see above. She's also less of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} in early stories. Heck, she managed to pass herself off as Akane for a while.

* MadScientist: Senbei is a more benign version. Mashirito, on the other hand... * {{Meganekko}}: Arale. Arale. In fact, her glasses became such a distinguishing feature that in Japan, she was the inspiration behind the phrase "Arare Megane" (Arale Glasses). * NiceGuy: Obbotchaman. His politeness is pretty much what makes his character going.

* NoFourthWall: One chapter involves an invention that can make something on a page real. Arale and Akane fool around with it until Arale casually ''cuts out the page they're on'' and puts it inside the machine, creating a space paradox. If that's not enough, character refer to and sometimes interact with the author...

* OlderThanTheyLook: Pisuke is actually 13, even though he looks like he's around 7 or 8. ** It's even worse for him when they take a hold of the camera that views the future mentioned above: we discover that he will look like that even at 30 (complete with the same cat-ears hat!), but with a Hitler mustache! * OnlySixFaces: Lampshaded in an early chapter where Akane is able to impersonate Midori. Toriyama curses his ability to draw only one female face.

* AuthorAvatar: Toriyama jokingly inserts himself as a robot with a gas mask. If not, expect to see a bird with glasses or a man with a surgical mask. ** At least once he inserted himself ''as a [[Franchise/{{Alien}} xenomorph]]''. ** Said AuthorAvatar showed up in ''VideoGame/BlueDragon: Awakened Shadow'' as a CPU party member, and even gets a bit of metafictional backstory--the robot isn't really Toriyama, but a robot ''based'' on Toriyama, who died several years before the story took place, and stipulated in his will that a manga-drawing robot be created in his image as his successor.

* {{Crossover}} / CanonWelding: With ''Franchise/DragonBall''. The Red Ribbon Army story arc has Goku landing in Penguin Village and meeting the Dr. Slump cast. The two series are thus said to take place in the same universe, although this fact has virtually no effect on either of them aside from the one story arc. However, it ''does'' mean that Arale has appeared in several of the DB fighting games (since they count that arc). * CuteBruiser: Arale.

The first animated adaptation in particular was spectacularly popular, and kicked off what's been called the "Toriyama Block" on Fuji TV -- Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. were held by either a ''Dr. Slump'' or ''Franchise/DragonBall'' adaptation from 1981 to 1999, a period of over 18 years. (And then ''that'' was succeeded by the first 63 episodes of ''Manga/OnePiece'', extending its status as a "Shōnen Anime Block" to nearly 20 years.) There have also been several novels, as well as a radio show starring the keyboardist from the band Southern All-Stars, but we'll leave things here for now.

* ArtEvolution: Arale was initially drawn like a proportional early teenager, but gets progresively rounder and shorter in the space of a few chapters. When one reader pointed it out in an "ask the author" section, Toriyama {{Handwave}}d it by showing Arale's original appearance as one of multiple bodys she can use.
