Added DiffLines:

* LuddWasRight: Many strips show that he looks down on modern technology. He views most television as "preachy" and encouraging consumerism, and when Calvin asked him why they don't have an Internet connection, he replied "Because it's bad enough that we have a telephone." In one strip, he got in trouble when he started complaining loudly about the wide variety of peanut butter at the grocery store, and it's hinted that this has happened before. There's also his yearly camping trips, which imply that he believes "building character" during a vacation is more important than actually enjoying it.

Added DiffLines:

* LackOfEmpathy: He expects everyone to bend over backward to accommodate his whims, yet refuses to do any work that doesn't have immediate benefits for himself. Moreover, he deliberately annoys people around him yet is incensed when someone else deliberately slights him. This isn't just hypocrisy; he genuinely believes that he is the most important person in the world, and that different standards of behavior apply to him. This is all pretty standard for a small child, the difference being that Calvin has the ability to cleverly articulate his worldview without ever seeing the inconsistencies within it.

* OnlySaneMan: In RealLife stuffed animals are meant to be thought of as people (but not real), and in the comic strip Calvin seems to be the only one aware of this.

* FormerTeenRebel: Along with her husband- despite it being a comic strip, this is the variant where the audience can't remember the character's past. Calvin also implies that she was a rather difficult child herself. All this comes as a shock to some readers, who assumed she and the characters came into existence when the first strip was piloted.
