* ShadowArchetype: Notices that she’s this to Vegeta, in some ways - they’re both high-”ranking” in their respective societies, have somewhat of a sense of entitlement, and can overlook the feelings of others. However, where Vegeta had only negative influences on him growing up thanks to how saiyan society and Freeza operated, Bulma became part of the heroic Z-fighters.



* CombatPragmatist: Has no issues against using guns in a fight (when guns were still effective against the enemy fighters, at least).



* CastFromLifespan: Her first Kamehameha was apparently this, and Roshi notices it probably cost her a few years of her life.



* RefusedTheCall: Roshi offers to teach her HealingHands, noticing that her chakras are not geared towards fighting. She turns him down.



* HasTwoMommies: Literally - Goku and Suno didn’t use adoption to bring him around.



* FridgeLogic: Causes it by asking Vegeta how he turns his ki purple, and causing Vegeta to realize he’s not sure how ki changes color. This turns out to be Foreshadowing for Gohan’s fight with Boo.

* FantasticRacism: Cites this and ableism as the reason that he wants to use the Dragon Balls to be ''taller'', of all things - he says that, King of the world or not, [[VillainHasAPoint there are still people who would mock people like him or Chief of Staff Black and look down on them no matter how influential they were otherwise]].



* WouldHurtAChild: Orders Tao Pai Pai to kill Goku after she interferes with his plans too many times, and is not above ordering children be sent to work in mines in areas the Red Ribbon Army conquers.

* SchoolIsForLosers: Suno, Chichi, Gohan, and Bulma are the only ones with any formal education. Everyone else was either homeschooled or never went to school at all. Of course, this also means that, as Chichi notices, none of them have that many job options that don't include "punching things".

-> The gender-neutral fusion of Trunks and Goten.

!!Xibito
-> The female-identifying fusion of Xi and Kibito.



-> The male-identifying fusion of Goku and Vegeta.
* ComicallyInvincibleHero: Even after absorbing Ultimate Gohan, Piccolo, Trunks, and Goten, Boo could barely ''scratch'' him in his ''base'' form. Going Super Saiyan pretty much ended the fight, with Boo only surviving because Vegetto was prolonging it on purpose.
* TranquilFury: The only reason he let Boo live so long was that he wanted to see if Boo could amuse him before he killed him.

* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: At first, Dr. Gero seems like he wants the best for humanity, and seemingly created Cell to defend Earth from [[AliensAreBastards alien invaders]], and hated Goku because she destroyed the Red Ribbon Army, his main source of funding (as well as Commander Red being a friend of his). However, he’s entirely too willing to “purge” some of humanity due to his belief that the world cannot sustain a continually-booming population, [[spoiler:and a computer download of his personality claims that he intended to have Cell eliminate humanity from the start and replace the population with Cell Jrs. Whether AIIsACrapshoot occurred, or the original Gero suffered MotiveDecay, is unclear.]]

*ReplacementGoldfish: Implied to be this for Dr. Gero, as he was built after the original Adrian's death and, unlike 17, 18, or 19, was given a name by the Doctor.

--> [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime "Before there was time, before there was anything, there was nothing. And before there was nothing, there was ''me.''"]]





* HeroicSelfDeprecation: When Lazuli offers him a “penny for his thoughts”, he says they’re not worth that much.



* TheMentor: While the Turtle School is apparently much less well-known than the Crane School, he has apparently taken in several students over the years between Goku’s death and Boo’s release.
* NotInFrontOfTheKid: Scolds Lazuli (his wife) for cursing in front of Marron (their daughter). To Lazuli’s credit, she covered Marron’s ears beforehand.









* TheMentor: Starts training Videl as a fighter after she learns how to fly, since Gohan is teaching Goten.



* TrainingFromHell: Unknowingly (maybe) subjects Videl to this by making her train in a meat locker to replicate the conditions in her hometown of Jingle Village. Suno’s hardly bothered, while Videl is in winter gear and still cold.












* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: As it turns out when he fights Boo, he's spent several years trying to figure out how ki works, and can among other things, make his standard attacks invisible.



* RealityEnsues: According to Babidi, when he’s reading Gohan’s mind, all the stress from when he was younger has had effects on him mentally. However, this also goes the other way, because he has no interest in dealing with Babidi, having been told beforehand by Xi what he is like (and seeing him kill two of his minions).












* GenreSavvy: The reason he never shows up on the Lookout after Boo is freed is that he says having the highest power signatures on the planet gathered together is asking for trouble. Considering that he apparently lived through the Human Extinction Attack, and may have saved his family as well, he made the right call.

to:

* BigDamnHeroes: While he wasn't able to kill Super Boo and was absorbed for his trouble, he came ''very'' close to doing it by himself, and was able to give Dende enough time to heal Gohan's eyes from the EyeScream that Boo rendered on him so he could see again.

* HappilyAdopted: Averted, as he and Lazuli didn’t take well to the foster system after their parents died, and wound up homeless before they were kidnapped by Gero.
** Played straight by him later, as he has three adopted children named [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Greg, Andy, and Jamie.]]
* HappilyMarried: To his wife Amy, a [[PettingZooPeople fox woman]].



* UnstoppableRage: After he survives the Human Extinction attack, he sees that the rest of his family and Adrienn were all killed by it. The only reason Boo survived his attack, ''despite'' how much stronger he was, is because he split off part of himself beforehand.



* DecliningPromotion: Lampshaded and Averted; she works as a police detective, but refuses to take a desk job, saying that it would be a waste of her talents (namely, being bulletproof) to do so.






* CurseCutShort: When she starts flying in chapter 108, she starts to swear in amazement, then realizes Goten is right next to her.



* OhCrap: When she’s learning to fly, she gets about a hundred feet up - and loses her focus. She promptly starts swearing.
* ShootingSuperman: When Gohan tells her that cutting her hair to help her fly is a good idea, Videl cuts it down a lot. When she sees that Suno’s hair is longer then hers, she starts whacking Gohan - which does effectively nothing.



* {{Tsundere}}: She’s this towards Gohan at first.


















* DefiantToTheEnd: Boo doesn't see it, but his last moments are spent giving the Human Extinction Attack two raised middle fingers.

* SurroundedByIdiots: Complains about how Goku, Vegeta, and Gohan aren’t taking the release of Majin Buu seriously several times, though it's all mostly PlayedForLaughs.
