* HateSink: While not explicitly mean or unpleasant, his stupidity, condescending attitude, and downright uselessness is frustrating to the audience as it is to the orphans.

* ClarkKenting: The Baudelaires never fall for it. [[AdultsAreUseless Everyone else does.]] Lemony Snicket's Unofficial Autobiography reveals that none of the disguises that he's used in the series are even of his own invention, they're moldy leftovers from [[spoiler:a generic VFD disguise kit he received back when he used to be a member.]]


Added DiffLines:

* IronicHell: The Baudelaires are wonderfully bright and kind children who he frequently tries to murder even though they hadn't done anything to deserve it. Later, Esmé adopts Carmelita Spats, who is a monumental brat that endlessly harangues and bullies Olaf, but because his girlfriend is so fond of her, he can do little but grimace and bear the abuse.
