Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRetribution: Just because she has a fear of dogs, Edna calls dogs a pest and has all dogs in Hill Valley impounded in 1986C.


Added DiffLines:

* ObliviouslyEvil: She fails to see that she is no different to the "hooligans" that she hated so much. [[spoiler: When she confessed to burning down the speakeasy, she admits that she enjoy watching the building burn but take no consideration that there maybe people in there]]. Her comic book counterpart is even worst.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Thomas F. Wilson based Biff on his own experiences ''being'' bullied. In high school, he was more like George [=McFly=].

Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: Once he gets his hand on the Grey's Sports Almanac in ''Part II,'' he becomes a DomesticAbuser (toward's Marty's mother, no less) and CorruptCorporateExecutive, and is decidedly much more frightening and dangerous than he was before, and thanks to him, Hill Valley is overrun with crime.

** In ''Part I'', when Biff and his cronies tried to run Marty into the back of a manure truck, Marty leaped off of his skateboard and ran through Biff's car.
** He managed to stop a temporal paradox that could destroy all of space-time with a few well-placed sandbags to the head of Biff's goons in ''Part II''.
** Unable to avoid a gunfight, he uses the door of a conveniently-placed stove as a bulletproof vest in ''Part III''.
** Also from ''Part III'', after seeing Clara about to fall from the train with Doc barely hanging on, Marty slipped Doc the hoverboard to help catch her.

** Subverted in 1885, where as the town blacksmith he seems to be well-liked by the town, where he's on a first-name basis with the saloonkeeper and the mayor.

* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: For a skateboarding rockstar wannabe, he's surprisingly down to earth.



* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: For a skateboarding rockstar wannabe, he's surprisingly down to earth.



* TrueCompanions: [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy Marty]] and [[ReluctantMadScientist Doc]] have a [[OddFriendship very strange]] but very strong bond. They are separated by interests and [[IntergenerationalFriendship age]], but they would [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice themselves]] for each other without a second thought. That's during the films. It gets more flagrant after the video game. This trope being more flagrant in the video game could be justified by the fact that Marty befriended a ''teenage'' Emmett Brown in 1931 like he did in 1955 with his parents and in 1885 with his great-great-grandparents.
