* [[spoiler:EmbarrassingLastName: after he's forced to change it to Jack Lame. It gets worse later on with Dick Phuck.]]

* TheBet: makes a bet with Ron early in the film that he can get better ratings than him. [[spoiler: He loses, and is forced to legally change his name to Jack Lame for the remainder of the film.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheStarscream: In the [[AllThereInTheManual DVD production notes]], it's said that while he's loyal to Ron, he'd be "secretly thrilled" if anything happened to him and Brian would become lead anchor. This isn't evident in any of the movies, though.

* WalkingSpoiler: it's hard to talk about him much without spoiling a good chunk of the film.

Added DiffLines:

* DrivenToSuicide: PlayedForLaughs in the second movie when he's fired from Sea World.
---> '''Ron''': I'm going the way of the ancient samurai, who when dishonored would [[KnowNothingKnowItAll hang themselves...from a florescent light.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BadLiar: Inverted. He's bad at ''telling the truth'', making it sound like a flimsy attempt at lying.
---> '''Ron''': -stammers- I tried to hang myself? Because my life's a mess? And I saw no other option?
---> '''Freddy''': I...think you're telling the truth, but why're you saying it like you're lying?
---> '''Ron''': It was a call for help? But it didn't work because I'm too heavy and the ceiling lamp broke? Something like that?

* {{Badass}}: To elaborate, he rode a bear and was the only one to get any [[spoiler:kills during the battle between all the news shows.]]
** And speaking of the news battle, managing to get your hands on a grenade and (in the second movie) a ray gun from the future definitely qualifies.
** If ''Wake Up, Ron Burgundy'' means anything canon-wise, and all of the Channel 4 News Team indeed were together in Vietnam, Brick was their leader, taking charge and giving out precise military tactics.



* {{Badass}}: Survives being [[spoiler:thrown off a bridge, travels across America with a bear companion to jump into a bear pit and talk down the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy mother bear]].]]

* StrawMisogynist: Comes off as this in ''Anchorman 2''; When Brian tells the group that he gave [[TheBradyBunch Florence Henderson]] crabs, he claims it's ''her'' fault [[DoubleStandard "for being a randy gal"]]. And when Linda dares Ron to hit her, he urges Ron to do it, saying it's "what men have done for thousands of years".
