%%* TheEveryman
%%* TheFinickyOne
* TheEveryman: In contrast to his more infamously ScrewySquirrel co-stars Bugs and Daffy, Porky's an everyday average Joe sort of character. This ultimately came to bite him, as he became increasingly perceived as "the dull one" by comparison.
* TheFinickyOne: Certain cartoons, particularly in his later years, portray him more like this, as a way to make him funnier but still evoke his original status as TheEveryman.

%%* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: He wears an open vest and a bow tie, but is otherwise naked.



* InnOfNoReturn: "Claws for Alarm"

to:

* InnOfNoReturn: "Claws for Alarm"Alarm", part of the Porky & Sylvester horror trinity, involves them visiting a run-down inn that's infested with murderous mice, who try their hardest to kill any visitors.



%%* NoRespectGuy

to:

%%* NoRespectGuy* NoRespectGuy: A RunningGag in his cartoons is how little respect just about everybody gives him.



%%* PorkyPigPronunciation: TropeNamer.

to:

%%* * PorkyPigPronunciation: His characteristic and iconic stutter makes him the TropeNamer.

%%* TheSmartGuy
%%* SpeciesSurname
* TheSmartGuy: As a secondary character, this is usually his prominent trait. It's especially prominent in his many, many stints as Daffy's sidekick, where he tends to be the smarter, saner member of the duo and thus is exempt from the slapstick.
* SpeciesSurname: Just like the other two big stars of the Looney Tunes, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, he follows this theme be being called Porky Pig.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: In the Porky/Sylvester "horror trinity" of "Scaredy Cat", "Claws For Alarm" and "Jumpin' Jupiter", Porky's status as TheStraightMan is amped up to the point that he refuses to believe anything weird or dangerous is going on. This actually gets increasingly creepier; in "Scaredy Cat", he is forced to admit that Sylvester was right and Sylvester saves him ([[YankTheDogsChain only to be knocked out by one last mouse whilst Porky's thanking him]]), but in "Claws for Alarm", he's never clued into the danger but manages to get away safely (TheStinger that some of the killer mice have stowed away with them besides). Finally, in "Jumpin' Jupiter", he winds up getting himself and Sylvester stranded on an alien planet because he never figured out he was being abducted by an alien.

* ButtMonkey: Porky wound up as this often, especially in his later cartoons.
** This got toned down as his co stars started to gain their own luckless streak. He played TheFool when paired with Sylvester and became Daffy Duck's HyperCompetentSidekick after the former evolved into a luckless SmallNameBigEgo. In comparison to these two, Porky generally took very few lumps in his later years.
** Until ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''. Now he's showing signs of this again.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Those of you who are used to watching his 40's and 50's cartoons may be quite surprised to see how different Porky was in his 30's cartoons, where he was a little kid, as well as morbidly obese in his early appearances.
** His voice also sounded different in his initial '30s cartoons, where his stutter was more apparent. This is due to the fact that his original voice actor, Joe Dougherty, had an actual stutter problem.

Here's a bit of interesting trivia for you: there are only THREE (or depending on how you feel about [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness "Porky's Hare Hunt"]] and [[TheCameo "Dumb Patrol"]], five) of the original theatrical cartoons that have starred Porky Pig and WesternAnimation/BugsBunny together  "WesternAnimation/ACornyConcerto", "WesternAnimation/PorkyPigsFeat", and ''WesternAnimation/AnyBondsToday''.

%%* AlliterativeName* AlliterativeName: As with many of Warner Bros.' animated characters including Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.



* RunningGag: Anytime he stumb-b-b-b, uh, stumb-b-b-b, er, stumb-b-b-b...has trouble with a word and uses similar word (or phrase) instead.



* TheStraightMan: While Porky was the first Warner Bros. character to actually have a distinctive personality, he was concieved and usually portrayed as a meek straight man, which made him a rather inflexible lead character for the directors. They usually had to rely on secondary characters to make his cartoons truly interesting, which eventually led to Porky becoming a secondary character himself once characters like WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck became the headlining star of the studio.

* StealthPun: There are a number of shorts where he's a police officer. Think about that for a second...
