Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite his general nature, he ''does'' come around to help the ants rid themselves of Hopper, even offering Flik a place in his circus when they've reclaimed their home. When he sees Atta and Dot newly crowned, he is on the verge of tears before he shakes the sentiment off.


Added DiffLines:

* SkewedPriorities: When he sees Manny "bleeding" to death during the fake bird attack.

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: He is regularly ridiculed and insulted for wasting his time on creative thinking and inventing instead of gathering food for the Offering. What makes this more understandable than usual for this trope is that he is very much TheKlutz and causes often more harm than good with his blunders. This is deconstructed because the others critisism of his acts blind them to the facts that he is actually right about.

* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: While Atta was at first dismissive towards [[NiceGuy Flik]] she wasn't as brutal as the rest, and it was somewhat justified given their colony's current predicament and that his inventions ''did'' cause problems.

It was only after she and the colony found out about his lies did she banish him.
