* FanBoy: Of comics, ''Franchise/StarTrek'', ''Series/DoctorWho'', ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', ''Series/TheWestWing'', ''TheWire'', ''Series/TwentyFour'', ''Series/BabylonFive'', ''Series/BlakesSeven''... He also seems to have the ability to go into their canons, because where else would he have gotten those morphers, pokeballs, phasers, and ''four sonic screwdrivers''?

* TheAlcoholic: WordOfGod says that Lewis portrays Linkara as a "raging alcoholic" in place of making jokes about suicide.

* TheAlcoholic: WordOfGod says that Lewis portrays Linkara as a "raging alcoholic" in place of making jokes about suicide. This is especially played up in TheMovie once Linkara's existential crisis catches up to him.



** After Insano Mechakara appeared to menace Linkara who, in comparison to the [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain ineffectual doctor]], was a lot more menacing and evil. He also had a much more bitter relationship with Linkara being [[spoiler:an alternate time line version of Pollo who stripped his versions Linkara of his skin to wear as a meat suit]] and desiring to make Linkara die as painful of death as possible.

[[spoiler:The feeling is very mutual on Mechakara's part who notes that, after his near destruction at the end of To Bodily Flee, the only thing that kept him sane was his hatred of Linkara.]]



* HeroicBSOD: Just look at the guy's face after his [[spoiler:defeat by Lord Vyce]]. Thank God Iron Liz managed to snap him out of it... [[spoiler:[[MundaneMadeAwesome By giving him a Care Bears comic]].]]

** He has a long, protracted one, during the events of TheMovie once the weirdness of his life catches up to him and he begins to question if he even still cares about comics anymore after reading so much crap. [[spoiler:However he is able to break out of it by the end and reifirm his love of reviewing bad comics.

* YouAreWhatYouHate: Vyce started out as a WellIntentionedExtremist or sorts (although one with [[{{Pride}} and ego]] who started conquring universes to protect them from The Entity when others failed to head his warning. However his continued conquests made him more and more evil [[spoiler:and, after losing to Linkara, he transformed himself into living date much like his foe. Linkara believes that, instead of the message from the future warning Linkara about "a piece of the world still [being] missing" isn't about The Entity at all but instead about Vyce who eventually ''became'' the new Entity.]]

* ComplexityAddiction: Somewhat acknowledged in-universe. [[spoiler: He came to our universe to find the magic gun and adapt to it so he could kill the magic wielding humans in his own universe, but also planned to kill Linkara. However, rather than simply doing that he decided that since he didn't much satisfaction from killing his universe's Linkara, he decided to torture and kill ours. He was still at it under Vyce, choosing to try and drive Linkara to suicide. In his next appearance, he'd apparently learned his lesson, showing up to kill Linkara directly.]]

** [[spoiler:By the time of his appearance in TheMovie Mechakara's finally given up on trying to kill Linkara with complicated schemes and resolves to either blow him up with his spaceship or killing him face to face. It doesn't end any better for him then the last time he tried to kill Linkara.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:At the end of TheMovie red smoke can be seen emanating from Mechakara's blown off hand leaving the possibility for his return up in the air.]]


Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Mechakara originally came to this universe to, aside from murder Linkara, understand the intracies of magic so that he could eventually destroy it on his own universe. [[spoiler:Yet Mechakara's life has been saved twice because of magic (once with the Magic Coin that he used during his second fight with Linkara and the second time with Malachite's Hand.]]

* ArtificialHuman

to:

* ArtificialHumanArtificialHuman: He modeled his appearance after Linkara to infiltrate an AlternateUniverse so he could find out more about magic in his quest to KillAllHumans.



* {{Gaslighting}}: [[spoiler:Seems like his plan for ''Dead/Alive'', using Linkara's already deteriorating mental state to torture him and try to convince him to kill Pollo in order to drive him over the edge.]]
** [[spoiler:... But the real plan was just for him to drive him insane using the unholy beast the girl from the introductions unleashed. He didn't count on the gun (I.e. the girl's life force) helping Linkara. And now Lord Vyce has upgraded him]]

** [[spoiler: Turns out he wasn't joking; TheMovie reveals that 90's Kid is actually the one who handles most of the maintenance on the ship. In fact, he has an entire speech pointing out he's not an idiot...he just REALLY likes the 90's...for the GOOD parts, not the bad parts. Plus, he likes being underestimated. They were TRYING, even if it went in a bad direction.]]

** Finally we have Lord Vice who has arguably supplemented the role of Linkara's archenemy from the other two. Vice is a Multiversal conqueror who initially sought to kill Linkara in order to save the universe from the entity. However, over time, their relationship became more personal [[spoiler:especially once Linkara defeated Vice. Vice then proceeded to become living data and hacked into Comicron 1 and {{Mind Rape}}ing NIMUE for good measure. The two have had numerous battles and he has become Linkara's most reoccurring foe.]] was later temporarily replaced as Linkara's arch foe by the evil robotic duplicate, Mechakara.

* BigBadWannabe: During his brief arc Linksano tired to take over as Linkara's replacement for Doctor Insano however he proved even more pathetic then the good doctor (who at least to his credit actually managed [[BewareTheSillyOnes a few victories against Linkara]]. Hell Linkara didn't even know that Linksano existed until he finally showed himself at the end of the arc. It's why eventually he gave up on his EvilPlan entirely and joined the good guys instead.

* CausticCritic

to:

* CausticCriticCausticCritic: Like most of the Channel Awesome personalities Linkara loves pooping all over bad comics. Although unlike most examples of this trope Linkara tends to focus on trashing genuinely bad comics and even comics he hates he will try to highlight positive aspects of them.



* TheChosenOne: Deconstructed. According to Lord Vyce, he is "the Champion" of his universe. Not only does this revelation change ''nothing'' in the grand scheme of things, but it also marked him out for a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown at Vyce's hands. Furthermore, it's implied that this is [[spoiler:''why'' the Entity left defeating Vyce in his hands; because he expected that he'd be able to defeat him.]]
* TheChosenMany: Because there are so many champions, one for each different universe, it seems that his title as a chosen hero is less important than he'd like it to be; especially since it hasn't come up since the Vyce Arc.

* TheChosenMany: Because there are so many champions, one for each different universe, it seems that his title as a chosen hero is less important than he'd like it to be; especially since it hasn't come up since the Vyce Arc. [[WordOfGod Lewis has stated that]], while Linkara may be "a Champion" of his universe, he is not some chosen one destined to be the one person who can save the world and that there are others (such as Angry Joe) who also qualify. Vice's definition of the term refers to someone who is his greatest threat in preventing him from conquering the universe and thus he needs to kill them in order to make their universe fall. This is pretty telling in that Linkara almost never manages to actually defeat a BigBad by himself instead needing the help of his TrueCompanions, or at times just plain dumb luck, to accomplish it.



* EnemyMine: [[spoiler: 90's Kid is revealed to be working with Lord Vice at the end of the King of Worms arc and in fact has been gathering materials to repair Vice's armour. However Harvey believes that he is only doing so in fear of The Entity returning.]]

* ArchEnemy: [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Dr. Insano]], whose plots include [[PresidentEvil becoming President]] and controlling a GiantRobot of death. Insano was later temporarily replaced as Linkara's arch foe by the evil robotic duplicate, Mechakara. Then we got Dr. Linksano, an alternate version of Insano that appeared in the ''Warrior'' review. So far, the only evil thing he has done is be an evil scientist. Eventually, [[spoiler:he ran off on realizing Lord Vyce was coming, and Mechakara stepped into the role again.]]

* ArchEnemy: Linkara has had quite a few over the years:
** Linkara's original Archenemy was
[[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Dr. Insano]], a parody of a Lex Luthor like super genius to compliment his faux Superman, whose plots include [[PresidentEvil becoming President]] and controlling a GiantRobot of death. Eventually as Linkara's foes got more numerous and [[KnightOfCerebus dangerous]] Insano became a lot more ineffectual as a villain although he did return briefly as the FinalBoss of the Gunslinger arc and showed that he can still throw down with his foe.
