* CoolHelmet: He wears a cool winged helmet, though it doesnít have magical properties aside from the immunity to critical hits common to all helmets. Itís also seen in the portrait.

* MilesGloriosus: He's prone to bragging about things he couldn't possibly have done, but in his defense, he IS pretty powerful and only rarely are his "exploits" truly unbelievable.

* InnocentBigot: His mindset towards women includes being very skeptical of their abilities (shown in grandiose fashion when his first ''romance talk' with a female Charname involves him doubting the stories of her deeds because of her gender) and trying to "protect" them (as with his banter with Neera). Unlike the rest of his {{Jerkass}} behavior, though, he doesn't seem to intend to be malicious, shown by his confusion as to know why they find this grating--he's just going off what he's seen of most female noblewomen. Still didn't stop a great many of the female gamers' ire.

Later, Garrick is no longer involved with the Bhaalspawn, but tried to woo a Female Paladin of the Order of the Radiant Heart. However, he's too shy and asks a gnome (named [[CyranoDeBergerac Cyrando]] to help him woo her. The Paladin in question ends up marrying the gnome, while Garrick ends up with someone else.

** Not to mention the whole bit with the paladin and the gnome is a clear take on ''CyranoDeBergerac''.

* AntiquatedLinguistics: Par for the course in this game, but in Korgan's case, borders on SesquipedalianLoquaciousness and FloweryElizabethanEnglish at times. Also makes him SophisticatedAsHell.



* {{Expy}}: Seems to have been the [[FountainOfExpies ur-example]] for a [[OncePerEpisode long line]] of BoisterousBruiser mercenaries with plenty of war stories in Bioware games (along with his antecedents in the first game Montaron and Minsc, to a lesser degree); Bioware loves this character type. Most directly, there's [[Franchise/DragonAge Oghren]], another dwarf berserker companion with a comedic side, a sweet tooth for beer and BloodKnight tendencies, as well as CasanovaWannabe traits. Of course, Oghren turned out to be considerably more moral, but no less CrazyAwesome. See also [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Canderous Ordo]], [[VideoGame/JadeEmpire The Black Whirlwind]], [[VideoGame/MassEffect Urdnot Wrex]], [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition The Iron Bull]], and many more.

* SecretTestOfCharacter: If he's in the same party as Aerie, he will relentlessly insult and belittle her. In the original release of [=BG2=], this would cause her to leave the party after awhile, but if the expansion is installed, she will eventually snap and insult him right back. At this point, he announces that his abuse was a SecretTestOfCharacter and now that she's proven she will stick up for herself, he's got no problem with her.
** Usually insults characters after meeting them, and befriends those that insult him right back. Including [[NeutralGood Imoen]].

* VitriolicBestBuds: With Edwin. If you keep them both around until ''Throne of Bhaal'' they'll form a 'pact' of sorts and try to take over the band to get a bigger share of the loot. It lasts only until you ask them how they plan on distributing their joint share.

** It appears to be painted on. He's like evil crazy fantasy Groucho Marx.



* HitchhikerHeroes: Almost literally; he and Montaron are encountered on the road after the PC leaves Candlekeep.

* HitchhikerHeroes: Almost literally; he and Montaron are encountered on the road after the PC leaves Candlekeep. They just seem to be waiting for an adventuring party to come along so they can join them on the road to Nashkel. It's not entirely clear how or if they knew CHARNAME (or possibly Gorion) would be passing this way



* ObviouslyEvil: Played with. He's very friendly, as if he's straining to cooperate with whoever comes along to help put an end to the iron crisis, but his craziness and evil just keep spilling out all over the place any time he's not directly engaging someone in cooperation. What's weirder about this is that although Khalid and Jaheira actually do seem to immediately notice something's wrong, but it still takes some time for the two pairs to come to blows, [[spoiler:possibly just so as to not tip their allegiance to their respective secret societies to the other.]]



* TheStarscream: Seems to be held in check by Xzar, but would gladly kill him if they weren't both working for the Zhentarim to investigate the iron crisis.

* BoisterousBruiser: Bioware [[OncePerEpisode loves]] this character type, but Korgan is so good at it in-universe that it's seemingly very easy for the other party members to overlook his BloodKnight tendencies, including paladin Keldorn, paladin-in-all-but-name Mazzy, and the game's iconic (and heroic) Boisterous Bruiser Minsc. Korgan's utter shamelessness about killing and looting come along with an infectious sense of fun that's hard to resist.

Similar to Rasaad, there are hints that Keldorn's lingering doubts are multiplied by her worship of dark goddess Shar. In his eyes, she's merely traded one evil for another.

* BloodKnight: Unapologetic about it, and while he comes from a particularly warlike clan, he makes no pretense of being this way [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch because of cultural differences]]; he acknowledges that it's a wasteful, stupid way to run civilization as a whole, but the reason ''he's'' like this personally is more or less because [[ForTheEvulz he just really enjoys it]].
