* IsThisWhatAngerFeelsLike: Upon learning that Cassie [[spoiler: let the Yeerks get away with the morphing cube]], Ax's narration comments that he's not sure what he's feeling towards her... [[WhamLine but it's a lot like hatred]].

** Collette's case is particularly tragic in this regard, as she's been lying to everyone around who'd listen (more as a pitiful form of denial than anything) that she's only temporarily paralyzed due to a sporting accident and that she's actually a healthy, normal girl who loves extreme sports. Needless to say, morphing doesn't heal her, somewhat ironically forcing her to finally accept the fact that she's a cripple and always has been.

When the Animorphs are finally uncovered and forced to go on the run, they decide to recruit some fresh blood in case they are killed. Rationalizing that the Yeerks would have no use for handicapped hosts, they do their recruiting at a children's hospital. Enter the Auxiliary Animorphs.

* TheUnfavourite: An OOC example. [[spoiler:In an interview, Applegate referred to David as a selfish, weak human being. Yes, that's right. Even ''the author'' considered him a waste of space, which explains his treatment by the Animorphs. The trilogy was written as though the team knew he was evil from the start, but had to wait for him to actually do something evil so they could inevitably get rid him.]]

* XanatosSpeedChess: [[spoiler:David plays a pretty mean game of it until he starts carrying the VillainBall, unless it's an IndyPloy - we never know for sure if he's had it all planned out or just making it up as he goes along.]]

* SanitySlippage: His mental health clearly deteriorates throughout the trilogy. Not surprising, given [[spoiler:he loses his whole life to the Yeerks, becomes a fugitive who can't even go out in public as himself, is recruited against his will into the Animorphs and has his life threatened when he tries taking a little control of his life back.]] Despite all this, he mostly holds it together throughout ''The Threat'' and even after [[spoiler:his betrayal]] he's focused on the goal of getting his parents back. It's only once that option's off the table that he ''really'' tailspins out of control. [[spoiler:And by ''The Return'' he's been driven insane completely due to the hellish experience of being trapped as a rat and the long isolation he was forced to endure.]]

* [[spoiler:MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: One gets the feeling that if the Animorphs had just sent David to live with the Chee instead of making him sleep in Cassie's barn that things might have worked out. Leaving him out of the biggest mission they've ever done up to this point and not, you know, ''[[WhatTheHellHero threatening to kill him]]'' also would have helped.]]

* KidnappedByTheCall: Jake is not giving David any options, once he has seen the Yeerks and used the Cube.

* [[spoiler:CreateYourOwnVillain: Arguably pushed over the edge into villainy by Jake's threat on his life and being forced to sleep in a barn, unable to go out in public as himself. He even justifies his actions with an IronicEcho of Tobias's own words.]]

* DivideAndConquer: [[spoiler:His midnight plan to kill the Animorphs one by one. It almost works, but luckily for the Animorphs a number of ContrivedCoincidence events occur at once to save their bacon (A random red-tailed hawk showing up for David to mistake for Tobias following him, Jake not bleeding out or getting trapped in morph, Ax not dying from taking a baseball bat to the beak in squishy bird morph, etc.)]]

** And then he [[spoiler:abandons everything to go on a possibly suicide mission to save Ax]], out of loyalty, but also because he was [[VictoryIsBoring bored out of his mind]].

* BiTheWay: Marco flirts with everybody, male Animorphs included. Also, his internal narration has a tendency to be very complimentary of Ax's appearance, both in and out of human morph, moreso than any other Animorph.
