Character description

Johnny's attributes can be best described as him being self-absorbed, unintelligent, extremely lustful, inconsiderate, and narcissistic. He is full of himself, often flexing his muscles in front of the mirror and women next to him. When he has a conversation with women, Johnny would try to turn the conversation around by boasting his positive traits (mainly his physique or his niche abilities), though his advances are usually rejected and result in the woman in question harming him (in a comedic fashion) due to his boorish manner. Johnny also naively and faultily believes that all women want him, even when they express the fact that they are uninterested. Because of this, Johnny has the courage to talk to any woman without hesitation, and even kisses one upon meeting her in the pilot. Johnny also has no sense of personal space, as he often rushes at the women and bends them backward while flirting with them, causing most of them to hit him out of disgust. He even occasionally flirts with women who are already in a relationship, going as far as to suggest cheating without any fear of repercussions.

Another attribute Johnny possesses is his determination, as he will go through many tasks, even life-threatening ones, to win a girl's heart; even if it often results in failure. These failures are due in part to Johnny's incompetence and his belief that good looks and macho actions are enough to win one's heart. Because of his shallow views on dating, Johnny usually treats his potential partners like "nagging housewife" types or ignores their needs in favor of his own.

Johnny is presented to be not too intelligent, totally lacking common sense and general knowledge. His level of intelligence and immaturity can vary from time to time, occasionally depicted in more extreme ways than usual. Despite this, Johnny often talks in a snarky, dramatic manner and uses "big" words from time to time. Johnny also seems to be more knowledgeable about his own interests than academics, or nearly anything he deems nerdy.

In the Disney+ film Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers, where Johnny exists as a cartoon character in the real world, he promotes Johnny Bravo Fitness on a billboard, with his body hidden, except for his left arm.

In "Once Upon a Toon", a segment of the Mad episode "Taking Nemo/Once Upon a Toon", Johnny assists Henry Swan in rounding up all the Cartoon Network characters so they can restore their memories. Due to his memory loss, he doesn't believe he's actually Johnny Bravo, since Johnny is bad with women. He later wakes up thinking everything was dream, only to be proven wrong when Alfred E. Neuman, the show's mascot, appears next to him in bed.

In the OK K.O. Let's Be Heroes! special "Crossover Nexus," he's one of the Cartoon Network characters Ben 10 transforms into.
