* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle: In some of the recent edutainment specials, it will end with the characters doing something to remind the aduiance what they should do (ie, wash your mouth and face before going out, different ways to say certain ways in both English and Japanese).

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: The 2006 movie Dolly of the star of life can be seen as this due to it's darker theme and climax.

Added DiffLines:

* LooseCanon: Mainly the canon between the show and films, as they don't seem to be connected in anyway. Like how Horrorman originally appeared in the 1991 film, but when he appeared in the show's proper, the characters who met him in the movie don't actually remember him. What's odd is that Rollpanna's debut episode was a driving point for the 1995 film.

Added DiffLines:

* DramaticSpotlight: This happens a few times for some characters if something goes wrong.


Added DiffLines:

* EyelidPullTaunt: Baikinman and Dokin-chan often do this taunt various times.


* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: The robots and monsters Anpanman fights in some episodes and at the climaxes of the movies are the only creatures he outright kills, as they're either machines of Baikinman's that have broken free of his control and are wreaking havoc, or a non-sentient being that only knows how to destroy. Since Anpanman has to kill said robot/monster to save the day, the writers try to make them as blank or as deplorable as possible; the robot/monster in question's either a soulless entity that has no feelings or personality, or is utterly irredeemable, so you won't feel bad it has to die.

* BigBad: Baikinman, although he occasionally gets usurped by beings who're far more malicious and destructive than him, but even then he's usually the one who creates and unleashes them upon the world, sometimes on accident.

Added DiffLines:

* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Every movie has one; an essentially blank entity that's immensely powerful and mindlessly wreaking havoc, serving more or less as a "final obstacle" for Anpanman to break through than an actual villain, let alone a character.
