[[spoiler:Between his feelings of obligation towards his creations, his desire to protect the world, and his "partnership" with Queen Cordelia, he simply doesn't act because he isn't sure what he wants to do.

* BrutalHonesty: After the near disaster that was Rosemaster, Almond gets angry at Cucumber for actually sympathizing with the Disaster Masters. Surprisingly, he refuses to back down and points out that until she picked a fight they might well have been able to work out some form of non violent agreement. When Almond angrily asks if he thinks it was ''her'' fault [[spoiler:most likely thinking of how she ended up mind controlled into attacking Carrot]] he bluntly says yes: If she had taken this quest seriously from the start then the entire revival of the Nightmare Knight would have been stopped before it even began. But no, Almond wanted to have a fun adventure. She has no response.

* ButThouMust: Played for drama; he wants to get into a magical academy and learn spells, but his parents and the Dream Oracle are insistent that his destiny is to become a hero, because his ancestors were also heroes. The Dream Oracle's laziness and incompetence doesn't help matters.



* ChildProdigy: Cuco has the same magical power rating as prodigy Peridot. His heroic quest also gets in the way of his planned entry into a prestigious magical academy for the 'gifted and/or incredibly wealthy'.

His heroic quest also gets in the way of his planned entry into a prestigious magical academy for the 'gifted and/or incredibly wealthy'. It doesn't help that both his own parents and the laughably incompetent Dream Oracle ''want'' him to be a hero just because he has a HeroicLineage.



* FieryRedHead: Subverted. Despite having carrot-orange hair, he's usually calmer and thoughtful than the hot-headed Almond.
* HeroicLineage: His ancestors were heroes AND also happened to be brother-and-sister duos who look just like Cucumber and Almond. His father... seemed to be the only exception.

* IronicName: Another for April fools day. Bacon points out Cucumber's hair looks nothing like a Cucumber unlike other characters with hairstyles similar to their names. It's quite fitting, since he's the only one in his family who doesn't want to be a legendary hero.



* VictorGainsLosersPowers: After he (or rather, his team) beat Splashmaster, Cucumber's wand is equipped with the Disaster Stone they obtained afterwards and grants him [[MakingASplash water spells.]] After some experimentation with Noisemaster's stone in the background of the comic, he confirms that he can equip any single disaster stone of his choosing to his wand. Fittingly, even his wand came from aftermath of the group's first encounter with Peridot.

The reason he forced everyone to participate in a play about how "magnificent" he wishes he is is he just can't get anyone to like him by being himself. He also pretended to be the same Legato from the legend to get attention, when really he's just a "pipsqueak" who stole the source of the dead Legato's magic.

His motivation for kidnapping the heroes and forcing them to be in his play is pretty much that he's celebrating himself, and expects them to enjoy it with him. Very much played for comedy.
