* '''BigEater''': He is presumedly ''the'' biggest eater ever concieved, due to his constant hunger & willingness to eat nearly anything.
** There was this episode where he ate during midnight & somehow got a werewolf-style curse. He then has to hide all the food in the catering facility from this alternate personality before sunrise. After sunrise, ''he eats the entire ball of food that is about as big as the building in 1 gulp''.
* CharacterAgedWithTheActor: According to WordOfGod, he aged with his voice actor, Nicky Jones.
* ChasteHero: He shows little to no comprehension to Panini's advances. [[spoiler: Averted in the finale, where he marries her.]]

* NotDistractedByTheSexy: In "Endive's Dirty Secret", Panini dresses up to look really pretty to manipulate him into giving her the photograph which Mung captured of Endive caught in the act of her secret. Chowder's response? He simply doesn't understand what she's trying to accomplish due to his stupidity.
-->'''Panini''': It's so hot today...you know what I'm saying?

->''"You see, there is an ugly lady inside us all, and sometimes, that ugly lady makes us do things we're not proud of."''
-> Voiced by Creator/DwightSchultz

He can be a bit scatterbrained, but when it comes to cooking, Mung Daal knows more than almost anyone. He pours his heart into every dish. Mung thinks he's a ladies man and frequently offers Chowder advice about finding love.
[[hardline]]
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Truffles.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He may seem a bit weird, but he's one of the most skilled chefs in the series.
* CasanovaWannabe
* HappilyMarried: Despite his constant flirting with women, he only genuinely loves Truffles.
* HenpeckedHusband
* IgnoredExpert: Half of their problems happen because Chowder will quite blatantly ignore Mung's teachings and warnings about handling the potentially dangerous foods they deal with.
** This happened so frequently that Mung starts blaming himself for the situations because he should know better than to expect Chowder to listen to him.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Chowder. Mung's age is ''[[Really700YearsOld 40 times his age]]''.
* KidAnova: In his childhood.
* LargeHam
* MeaningfulName: His name is a type of beans.
* MentorOccupationalHazard: He doesn't die, he's just usually on the receiving end of the {{Slapstick}}.
* NoAccountingForTaste
* ParentalSubstitute: Depends on how you look at it, but most agree he is this to Chowder.
* Really700YearsOld: Given that it's revealed in "Mung On The Rocks" he's been married to Truffles for 350 years, he must be unnaturally old.
* SmallNameBigEgo
* SupremeChef: He's widely considered to be [[UptoEleven the world's best chef]].
* YoungerThanTheyLook: While it's apparent he is really old, he looks pretty fresh and flexible for being over 400 years to count.

* ClingyJealousGirl
* CuteLittleFangs
* CuteMonsterGirl

* EarsAsHair
* [[spoiler: ExplosiveBreeder: Apparently, Panini is prone to this, given her rabbit-like species and that she has fifty babies in the series finale with Chowder, twenty of which she gave birth to in one day.]]
* {{Flanderization}}: She started off as a relatively nice girl with an innocent cute crush on the protagonist, to an horribly obtrusive and disrespecting to Chowder's peronal space.
* [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: To Chowder.]]
* MeaningfulName: Her name is a type of Italian sandwich.
* MixAndMatchCritters: She's the same species as Chowder but with rabbit ears. Most likely sexual dimorphism at work here.

[[WMG:Gazpacho]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gazpacho_from_chowder_3374.PNG
->''"Come. Sit. Buy my beans!"''
-> Voiced by Dana Snyder

A storekeeper who sells strange produce and ingredients. He does his best to offer advice to Chowder when needed. He lives with his overbearing mother, who never appears. Gazpacho shows no interest in moving out and improving his own life.
[[hardline]]
* AxCrazy: Shown multiple times. Think about it; we never actually see Gazpacho's mother despite her being mentioned all the time, which "Spookiest House In Marzipan" points out, implying that she is made up and Gazpacho might be [[FunnySchizophrenia schizophrenic]]. It was PlayedForLaughs.
** In that episode he gives an offhand comment that he is going to kill Chowder, Gorgonzola and Panini after coffee. That's right, he's going to stab ''[[WouldHurtAChild three children, featuring his best friend]]''.
** In "Dinner Theatre", he enjoys his villainous role a little too much, pretending to be this character outside practicing and at the end this line occurs with literal axe craziness:
--> '''Chowder''': [[ItMakesSenseInContext Well, at least no one got killed]].
--> '''Gazpacho''': At least...''(takes an axe)'' NOT YET!
** "Banned From The Stand" has Gazpacho going paranoid that Mung and Chowder are going to buy berries off of him by help from other people, which is at the beginning ProperlyParanoid, but then he goes overboard and thinks everyone is trying to help Mung and Chowder, speaking to himself in a crazy manner and banning everyone, including from every other stand and the bathroom, and his overly paranoid behaviour ends with him banning himself from his ''own'' stand. This all happened because Mung and Gazpacho had a [[ComicalOverreacting disagreement]] [[DisproportionateRetribution on the berry's colour.]]
* CloudCuckooLander: He doesn't provide to make a situation less complicated.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Chowder.
* LargeHam
* ManChild: Taken to the extreme in the series finale, where [[spoiler: he couldn't change anything to make his life better, so he ran away and made up a whole bunch of lies. Adult Chowder eventually finds him and brings him out of hiding.]]
* MeaningfulName: His name is a kind of tomato sauce.
* MommasBoy: This was his codename during the episode, "The Heist".
* MyBelovedSmother
* SplitPersonality: Remember when Gazpacho [[spoiler:was revealed to be his own Mother!?]]
** But that wasn't real. [[spoiler: OR WAS IT!?]]
* WasItAllALie: See ManChild above.
