* CrossesTheLineTwice: Dr. Mashirito but it's PlayedForLaughs. The first time was when he abandoned Obatchaman for being good, and the second one was when he tried to ''kill'' Senbei so way he'd never provide Arale and Obatchaman with Robo-vita-A. [[RuleOfThree Better make it thrice,]] as he [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown beaten an energy-deficient Obotchaman with a stick and kicked him in a hole]] in the remake.

* MemeticMutation: A popular reaction image of a bear in awed tears is from chapter 6 of the manga, when the bear that Arale and Senbei set free sees the mountains.

* CrazyAwesome: Every single character and the entire series. Everything about it is absolutely silly, over-the-top, nonsensical, and hilarious. Even the supposedly "serious" characters are kooky in their own way.

* CrazyAwesome: Every single character It's Arale's hyperactive craziness that makes her so cool and popular as well as one of the entire series. Everything about it is absolutely silly, over-the-top, nonsensical, and hilarious. Even the supposedly "serious" most iconic MemeticBadass anime characters are kooky ever. That little girl can ''literally'' punch the world in their own way.half when she's just playing around!

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: How some people feel about the remake, especially because they made Arale a brunette.

* HilariousInHindsight: When Arale meets Donbe, a transforming fox, she claims that she can transform as well, and promptly spends [[TransformationIsAFreeAction the entire afternoon]] changing into an Ultraman costume. This almost feels like a retroactive parody of the TransformationSequence scenes in ''Dragon Ball''.

** Arale's sidekick Gatchan is a quite a fan-favorite. His/her popularity is probably second only to Arale herself.

** [[HeroicWannabe Suppaman]], as many fans remember him as one of the funniest characters. Other similarly pathetic characters like King Nikochan get this as well, to a lesser extent.

* FridgeBrilliance: The "angel" twins are found from an egg left by "God" to halt the progression of technology after seeing the disasters it caused on other planets. This makes ''a lot'' of sense in retrospect when one reads ''Dragon Ball', where Goku and General Blue go to Penguin Village and Senbei expresses relief [[BreakingTheFourthWall to be in a Shonen Jump again]]. It is later revealed in Dragon Ball that "God" and "The Devil" are two aspects of the same being and that "The Devil" can hatch "Demonic" offspring from eggs he produces. Later still, it is revealed several planets have their own "God", meaning the god who tried to stop the advancement of Earth was likely the same one later seen in ''Dragon Ball'', which also explains the angel eggs. They were probably birthed by Earth's god the same way Earth's devil birthed demons.
