* AntiVillain: Sure, he's a slimy, contemptible, amoral schemer... but given that his father alternately despises him and forgets he exists, his peers treat him with pity at best and disgust at worst, and his only friends are sycophantic [[YesMan Yes Men]]... it's not hard to see ''why''.

* UpperClassTwit: Slightly smarter than Edmund, but ''that's'' no great feat. Having said that, he's probably still the smartest and sanest member of his family. He's also seemingly obsessed with the castle drains.
** More pronounced in the original pilot episode, where he's depicted as having much the same personality as Percy.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoAboveItAll: One of his defining traits is that he often ends up doing popular things that he arrogantly critisised and considered as beneath him. At times like with Johnson's diary, his rejection is more in response to the perceived disdain that Johnson showed for his magnum opus first and of course it disappeared once it turned out that he didn't discard it at all.

* BigEater: Exemplified in 'The Archbishop', where his meal is contrasted with that of Queen Gertrude's.



* GenerationXerox: His historical father, Edward IV, was also a HotBlooded BloodKnight.

** CoolSword: Sir Wilfred Death
** TheArcher: Three-Fingered Pete
** BowAndSwordInAccord: Guy de Glastonbury
** ChainPain: Friar Bellows seems to use his rosary as a garroting weapon, given that he brandishes it when the others are drawn.
** KnifeNut: Sean
** Averted with Jack, who seems to favour his fists and his feet.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Perfectly polite and affable if you're not [[TheUnfavourite Edmund]] (or Turkish). He's even implied to treat [[CampGay Doncaster]] with respect.

* TheNeidermeyer: He is distraught by the death of his pigeon "Speckled Jim", yet blissfully uncaring about the fifty thousand men a week dying in the trenches. His bizarre tactics that help expedite the latter include "doing precisely what we've done eighteen times before" and "climbing out of [the] trenches and walking very slowly towards the enemy". Sadly, both are to some extent TruthInTelevision.

* StrawLoser: Intellect wise at least. While his era's Edmund is much more of a buffoon, he almost reaches his predecessor's level of snarky wit when putting up with Percy's greater idiocy.

Added DiffLines:

* GeniusDitz: He near-enough describes himself as one in "Captain Cook", saying that painting was the only thing he was ever really good at, and he's not lying. When you can get Blackadder of all people to compliment your talent, you're doing something right (even if Blackadder tries using George's skills to his own ends).
