* {{Earworm}}: "When you get in trouble, and this goes double, you call the Paw Paw Bears! "Paw Paw Bears! Paw Paw Bears!
* EnsembleDarkhorse: [[LovableCoward Trembly Paw]] and [[BigBad Dark Paw]]. Eugene the genie is also well-liked despite appearing in only 2 episodes.
* JerkassWoobie: Slippery Paw and Bumble Paw, Dark Paw's two henchmen, play this straight. Sure, they are jerkasses, but they're also AdorableEvilMinions whom Dark Paw uses as his personal punching bags.
** Trembly Paw is a mild, borderline example. He's a bitter, snarky, cowardly GrumpyBear who gets irritated easily, but he has the ButtMonkey status in the tribe and sometimes Mighty Paw picks on him.
** Dark Paw. He tries so hard to get the moonstone yet always fails.
* NightmareFuel: The greedy greenies. They are green blobs with yellow dot eyes that devour almost everything in sight, they show up in the middle of the night and cannot be killed. Also, it's implied that some of them used to be Paw Paws. Sweet dreams.
* ReverseShazam: The show itself is simply called "Paw Paws", although they are called the "Paw Paw Bears" in the theme song's chorus.
* TheyJustDidntCare: Trembly Paw is the only character who never got any merchandise. Maybe because he didn't appear till the 5th episode. Still, he's a popular character.
* UglyCute: Dark Paw, the BigBad, could be seen as this.
* VillainDecay: The Great Greenie. In his first appearance, he was a FatBastard, but in his second appearance, he thinned down and mellowed out a bit.
* TheWoobie: Trembly Paw, particularly in the episode "Honey of a Robbery". [[TheCassandra No one believes him when he sees something]] because he's such a NervousWreck so the others mock him and laugh at him for it.
** Totem Turtle also qualifies. He's the NonActionGuy of the totem mecha and he even sheds a SingleTear when Princess calls him "too slow".
** Another example would be the unnamed SlaveMook Paw Paw who was turned into a greedy greenie. He's portrayed in a rather heartbreaking manner.
** Shortfeather also qualifies, as he's the horse counterpart to Trembly Paw.
** [[OneSceneWonder Angel!Trembly]] in the episode "The Great Paw Paw Turn Around". All he does is shiver and look sad and he tells Trembly that he almost got them killed by beating up the meanos.
