* EvilCounterpart: Of a sort, to Michael. [[spoiler: Both are badass operatives with military service histories who were trained by Tom Card. But where Michael was and is a stellar intelligence agent who was wrongfully burned and uses his skills and training for good, Gray became a mercenary who didn't particularly care about collateral damage and sold his services to the highest bidder.]]



* JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler:Michael tells him off for shooting Anson with Nate, an innocent, in the way. Gray then relates the conditions under which he made the shot on Anson. He is ''not'' exaggerating when calls it a once in a lifetime shot, and on top of that he had no idea who the hell Nate was at the time. Gray was so far away he would have had to take the ''curvature of the world'' into account as he pulled the trigger.]]

Gray was so far away he would have had to take the ''curvature of the world'' into account as he pulled the trigger. At nineteen hundred yards, the shot would have been among the top ten longest recorded sniper kills in history.]]



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: [[spoiler:Is subjected to minor versions from both Michael and Madeline, due to his willingness to shoot someone other than his target.]]

to:

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler: Brennan's mooks kill Marv about five seconds after he hands them the thumb drive with the Burned Spies Organization roster.]]



* ReassignedToAntarctica: Reassigned to Mumbai after breaking another rule for Westen.

to:

* HeroicSacrifice: A non-lethal version. She willingly takes the fall for Team Westen blackmailing a man at an intelligence conference, without even telling Michael before she's already done it. Her last order to him as his senior officer is for him to not reveal the truth.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: Reassigned to Mumbai after breaking another rule for Westen. She mentions it could have been worse, as the CIA was looking to fill an ice station post in Reykjavik.




to:

* VillainExitStageLeft: She's done some terrible stuff for Anson and takes a bullet for it, but she gets to walk away.

* DistaffCounterpart: Of Carla.

to:

* DistaffCounterpart: Of Carla.[[spoiler:Of Carla]]. Made especially apparent when it's revealed by Simon's tape to Michael [[spoiler:that Vaughn, despite him claiming earlier in the season he had nothing specifically with Michael's burn notice, told Simon in a recorded conversation that they would be replacing him with Michael "and if he doesn't work out, there'll be another", just like how Carla lied to Victor about being responsible for burning him and killing his family]].



* FauxAffablyEvil: Puts a lot of effort into the pretense and doesn't take exception to things like Michael kicking him out into a hurricane, but he's nowhere near as pleasant as he tries to come off.

[[spoiler:As revealed by a taped conversation courtesy of Simon, Vaughn was one of the very people who helped pull the trigger on Michael's burn notice, and]] he doesn't shy away from using excessive force to kill Michael and his friends and family once he finally has enough.

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder

to:

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorderChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Almost ''no one'' is safe from Larry. He'll kill his own clients if he feels like it and even if they pay him as requested. Michael's the one person he ''usually'' won't try to kill, but that doesn't mean he'll try to screw him over in another fashion, [[TheCorrupter all in the name of getting him to come to his side, of course]].



* TheyWereHoldingYouBack: His opinion of [[spoiler:Michael's relationship with Fiona.]]
* ToxicFriendInfluence

to:

* TheyWereHoldingYouBack: His opinion of [[spoiler:Michael's relationship with Fiona. Michael made his objection to that [[KilledOffForeReal quite clear]].]]
* ToxicFriendInfluence
ToxicFriendInfluence: Everyone, but especially Fiona, is convinced that getting into bed with Strickler won't end well for Michael at all, and even Michael clearly shows doubts as more and more dubious things come up about the man.

* AxCrazy: Not ''as'' hammy as equivalent villains in this series, but arguably the most unhinged.

to:

* AxCrazy: Not ''as'' hammy as equivalent villains in this series, but arguably the most unhinged. All the crimes Michael was accused of in his burn notice? All proudly done by him, or at least all the "best" parts.



* CuttingTheKnot: Due to guilt over his past misdeeds and the lives those misdeeds cost, Michael favors complex strategies that are (usually) non-lethal or cause a target to be the cause of his own undoing. Larry, who is pretty much amoral and AxCrazy, (and thus immune to PangsOfConscience) just kills whoever is in his way and moves on.
