- Acrofatic: If the beginning to the "Johnny Bravo Goes to Bollywood" movie is to be believed. Yes, you read that right.
- Amazon Chaser: The whole "Vendela is a superheroine" thing certainly didn't make her less attractive to Johnny.
- Shown as early as the What A Cartoon shorts. Most specifically "Johnny Bravo and the Amazon Women".
- Berserk Button: Don't touch his glasses, just don't. Also, never EVER threaten his Momma.
- Butt Monkey
- Casanova Wannabe

- Even Narcissists Have Standards: Johnny may be obnoxious, self-absorbed and shallow, but he'd think twice before ever lying to a woman with false sincerity ("The Sensitive Male!").
- Also in the pilot it's shown that when a little girl was asking Johnny for the time, Johnny thinks she was flirting with him and he made it clear that there is "too big of a generation gap between us."
- Fascinating Eyebrow
- Flanderization: A major example. In the earlier episodes and the pilot, Johnny was just incredibly cocky, socially inept, reckless and actually somewhat competent in martial arts - also, while certainly not an Einstein-level genius, he possessed average intelligence. Seasons after, however, made him stupid, immature, mysoginistic and buff without any benefit. To elaborate, in the later seasons, Johnny, for all his bulk, is repeatedly humiliated by 6-year-old boys and girls, whereas in the pilot, he effortlessly mauled a CROCODILE. Oddly, in the last season, this was reversed completely.

- Strong as They Need to Be: At times he can smash rocks with his head. At others, he loses to a kid.
- This Loser Is You: Doesn't get the girl? Check. Still lives with his mother? Check. The main Butt Monkey? Check.
- Took a Level in Dumbass: Johnny obviously wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer when he first appeared, but you can tell later episodes played up his idiocy and immaturity more and more.

- Surrounded by Idiots: As part of her Character Development in Seasons 2 and 3, especially if Carl and Johnny are around her and something goes wrong. Sadly, this is phased out in Season 4 (see Flat Character above.)
- Tagalong Kid
- Took a Level in Kindness: Many times.
- Vocal Evolution: As she was voiced by a child.
- Wise Beyond Their Years
- Alliterative Name
- Ambiguously Gay: He seems a little too attached to Johnny and even ruins his chances with women a few times, presumably because he wants him to himself.
