* {{Badass}}: Despite his Nerd Herd status, Chuck has proven himself with this trope:
** BadassPacifist: Hates dangerous situations, and uses tranq guns instead of real ones. [[spoiler:Albeit, will fire a real gun when absolutely necessary.]]
** BadassNormal: Before the Intersect 2.0, this is what Chuck was all about. [[spoiler: Back to being this now that Morgan is the Intersect.]]
** TookALevelInBadass: Cue the Intersect 2.0. Plus [[spoiler:shooting Shaw marks his first real kill.]]
*** [[spoiler: As of Season 5, he's been kicking ass WITHOUT the Intersect. Just ask Shaw, a properly trained agent, who tried to fight Chuck one-on-one.]]

to:

* HollywoodDateless
HollywoodDateless: Everyone in Chuck Bartowski's life regularly acts like him getting a date of any kind, let alone one with a good-looking woman, is a minor miracle. This continues approximately through the end of the second season, despite the fact that in that space of time he dates two beautiful women and has a third one in love with him. For the most part the third season drops the facade, though.
* HollywoodNerd
HollywoodNerd: Zachary Levi scrubs up far too well to make a believable nerd. However, this is TruthInTelevision, as he's OneOfUs.
* TheKlutz
TheKlutz: He gets the team into as many scrapes as he gets them out of. Whether this trait will be overcome by the neo-Intersect remains to be seen.
* LovableNerdLovableNerd: For example, the pilot quickly establishes that he hasn't been in a relationship in a while, partly due to his conversational awkwardness driving women away. Soon after, a gorgeous woman flirtily approaches him at his job in the "Nerd Herd" (the electronics support team of a big-box retailer) right before a desperate father seeks his help because he "recorded" his daughter's dance recital footage with no tape in the camera. Chuck promptly puts the beautiful woman on hold to save the dad's bacon by setting up a spot for the little girl to re-perform and re-film her ballet routine right there in the store. Fortunately for him, the beautiful woman thinks it's lovable, too.

* {{Badass}}: The world's biggest badass. At least, according to him.
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass / ObfuscatingStupidity: He's introduced as Gregory Tuttle, a meek and milquetoast handler for Frost. [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler By the end of the episode]] he's revealed to be Alexei Volkoff, the whole "meek and milquetoast" bit being a front.

** Later in season three, he's the first to believe Chuck's insistence Shaw is still alive after Chuck tells him the CIA NeverFoundTheBody, because he learned it from Creator/JohnCarpenter movies.

* OutOfCharacterIsSeriousBusiness: You know an episode has moved out of comedy and into the more dramatically serious teritory if Casey has A) dropped his tough guy demenor for his more emotional side, or B) started to defy orders.



* TeamDad: As much as Casey moans and gripes about having to take care of team Bartowski, he play the reluctant father figure very often. In between complaining about how annoying an unprofessional they are, he often begrudingly dispenses advice and even emotional support to both Chuck and Sarah. He is even willing to defy orders just to keep them safe.

* BigBrotherInstict: Casey swings between acting as a gruff father figure and an aloof older brother type towards Chuck (and sometimes Sarah), but generally he has a protective instinct towards Chuck that goes above and beyond orders. In fact at some points, he even defys orders just to keep him safe. Hes also regularly there to offer guidence and adivce to Chuck, even if it is through gritted teeth.

** In a more abstract example- messing with Team Bartowski, especially once you get past the first couple of seasons, is a very bad idea.

** And as stated multiple times, Chuck is esentially just a really nice guy. Hes a good person, and he shines when acround people. Its what makes him so great at the Buy More, and a major asset on missions. He empathises with and tries to help just about everyone he comes across, be it angrey customers, stressed out friends, scared civilians, or (unfortunatly) international terroists.
