Tropes associated with Dong Woo:

  • Animation Bump: Ninja Turtles and Dante's Inferno are the best examples.
  • Animesque: Some of its western works, partially due to being owned by an anime company.
  • Conspicuous CG: Inital D, Transformers, Ultimate Spider-Man, Ninja Turtles (among others) all have this.
  • Latex Perfection: They're usually better at animating this than other Korean studios.
  • Off Model: Not often, but is obvious when it happens.
  • Production Posse: Along with Lotto Animation, they have been a major client for Warner Bros. Animation in the 2000's. They were also exclusively used by the 2003 TMNT series, to the point of getting their studio logo shown after the credits (4Kids would use them later for the second and third seasons of Chaotic as well). And as mentioned above, they've worked on several of Studio Gallop's productions.
