* StealthPun: The Captain is a bear and his stupid first mate a rat. [[note]]Works only in German where "Seebär" and "Landratte" are colloquialisms signify one who is at home on sea...and one who isn't.[[/note]]

* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Hein Blöd. Hein is of course a given name in German, but in other European languages... let's just say his full name could plausibly be translated as ''Hey, Stupid''.

Added DiffLines:

** Also the ping-uins, formerly pong-uins. (The Captain taught them to break the ice in a very harsh winter.)

Added DiffLines:

* GlassShatteringSound: Pah! The Käpt'n shatters whole America (he was in danger of colliding with the cliffs in a storm) by singing the high Z. Thus creating the Panama canal.

* CoolBoat: Käpt'n Blaubär's home is a ship sitting on a cliff above the sea.[[note]] An angered Neptune threw it there and forced the Captain into retirement because he told him the truth about Neptunes nonexistent musical talent.[[/note]] While not spectacular by itself [[note]] well, at the end of one episode it silently lifted off into air[[/note]], it's crammed up to the deck with [[CowTools weird stuff]].

Added DiffLines:

* YouDidntAsk: Käptn Blaubär is hopelessly behind modern times. When he catches a computer virus (resulting in a HumiliationConga with (paper!) spam, furniture getting deleted and himself turning into a badly animated CGI version), the tech-savvy Bärchen enjoy it before giving him the cleanup advices and saying these words.

Added DiffLines:

*** And from the [[Literature/TheThirteenAndAHalfLivesOfCaptainBluebear first Zamonia novel]], we learn that in his youth he had been an accomplished and celebrated Congladiator.


* PoirotSpeak: Both the captain and Hein Blöd speak with a heavy [[GermanDialects north German accent]], but use Standard German vocabulary unless the meaning of a word is obvious by context -- regional accents in Germany [[SeparatedByACommonLanguage can be incomprehensible to people from other parts of the country and often can vary considerably in their vocabulary]].

Added DiffLines:

* FinishingEachOthersSentences: The three grandkid bears spoke like this in the classic sketches. In newer stories, this is largely absent.


* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Hein calls him ''Käpt'n'' while the little bears call him ''Opa'' ("grampa").



* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Hein calls him ''Käpt'n'' while the little bears call him ''Opa'' ("grampa").

Added DiffLines:

* SnarkToSnarkCombat: The little bears always bitch about the Captain's stories. Sometimes, he fires back.
