* NextSundayAD: One episode ended with this kind of future, where Frederick is grown-up, and he and Lilith are listening to a reading of Frasier's will. [[spoiler:Thanks to incidents at the bar in the present, Frasier's will got mixed-up with Sam's sperm test results.]]

* SophisticatedAsHell: [[ZigZaggedTrope Depends on the episode.]] In the series premier, he briefly joins in the guys' discussion on "the sweatiest movie ever made" (his suggestion of ''CoolHandLuke'' apparently settles the argument). In his later appearances, however, his attempts to sound casual make him look like an arrogant klutz.

* LysistrataGambit: Lilith pulls this more and more as the Rebecca era progresses. It hits Frasier hard.
-->'''Lilith''': Oh, Frasier, isn't it enough that I'm [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar doing it]] to your [[MindScrew mind]]?

* {{Manchild}}: Basically his other major trait besides his skill with the ladies. He's in his 30s at the beginning of the series and his 40s by the time it ends, but still has prank wars with other bars.

* TookALevelInJerkass: After Season 1, Diane gets noticeably ruder and more selfish--causing Sam no end of headaches as his off-again on-again girlfriend (which culminates in publicly humiliating him into proposing to her under threat of jail-time,) temporarily ruining Frasier's life and refusing to even apologize until way later, and even her demeanor towards many of the regulars at Cheers becomes more barbed and condescending than in the first season. She still has moments of kindness, but it's all too clear that she thinks more or herself than anyone else.

* BatmanGambit / ShipperOnDeck: Coach wants to see Sam and Diane get married - his fantasy of their union involves him ''living'' with them. He was visibly distressed in Season 3 when he saw Frasier and Diane dating, so much so that he began to employ this on Sam, Diane, and Frasier. He privately tells Sam that if Diane doesn't work at the bar, she'll go mentally ill again. He privately tells Diane that if she doesn't work at the bar, Sam'll hit the bottle the second she leaves. He then privately tells Frasier than if she doesn't work at the bar, she'll fantasize about Sam, and if they work at the bar, they'll continually snipe and start hating each other.

* MommasBoy[=/=]MyBelovedSmother: He's in his 30s and still lives with his mother, Esther. Cliff isn't very knowledgeable or socially apt (unlike her, whom he ''tries'' to take after) so Mrs. Clavin treats him like a kid.

* GeniusDitz / DitzyGenius: Woody speaks simply and is completely blind to double talk, but his upbringing has given him a useful, if unorthodox insight in the big city.
