* DudeLooksLikeALady: The reason why he got his first name as a little child. His parents were apparently incapable of recognizing the difference between male and female and treated him and dressed him like a girl, which makes one wonder if they even had a doctor to tell them the distinction after he was born- or if he was even born in a hospital. This no longer applies now that he's older.

* FreudianExcuse: His parents were people perpetually stuck in the 60's (i.e. hippies) and constantly stifled his scientific curiosity. He tried his best to go along with it, but one chance meeting with Dexter on the day he moved into the neighborhood ended with Dexter laughing in his face. Needless to say that was the straw that broke the camel's back. PlayedWith. He was hinted to have always been born with a negative disposition and his parents really didn't understand him though when they did realized they were denying some of his needs, they left their home and traveled around, eventually settling in Dexter's neighborhood.

* HippieParents: Turns out Mandark's parents are hippies, and his real name is [[spoiler:Susan]], because they originally thought he was a girl. They didn't bother to change it because they were fond of it even in spite of the fact they had a boy, so he did for them.

* EvilCounterpart: To Dexter; Tall and composed to Dexter's short and insecure. His younger sister, Olga "Lalavava" Astronomov, is this to Dee Dee, a short and solemn Technician to Dee Dee's tall and joyful Performer; while Dee Dee unwittingly destroys Dexter's creations but truly loves her brother, Lalavava bullies Mandark mercilessly. His parents also serve as not so evil counterparts to Dexter's, being a pair of 60's era hippies in contrast to Dexter's straight laced 50's inspired ones.
* EvilGenius: His talents and competence are equal to Dexter's.

ones. His intentions towards science are also diametrically the opposite of Dexter's for while Dexter engages in science to improve mankind and the boundaries, Mandark wanted to use science as an extension of his own malevolent tendencies and take over the world.
* EvilGenius: His talents and competence are equal to Dexter's. Dexter's but it's implied in Ego Trip that he's not as imaginative as Dexter can be, which limits his genius.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Sometimes has hints of this - she lacks a lot of social intuition, can't take a hint, seems to be very temperamental, and even her own ''friends'' get frustrated by her odd behavior at times.



* AllGirlsLikePonies: She is a pony fancier, as are her cloney best friends. There was the episode where she asked Dexter to turn her into a pony because she liked the My Little Pony expy so much.

* AbusiveParents: While they're not the worst examples of the trope, they aren't very supportive of Mandark's love for science, and they gave him a name [[spoiler:Susan]] that would subject him to a lot of ridicule from other kids.

Mandark's father also is the first to actively attempt to shut down Mandark's scientific pursuits and displays anger problems when things don't go his way.

* CantCatchUp: ''Ego Trip'' reveals that his vast intellect has a cap to it which is why he starts to steal Dexter's ideas when they get older and the reason he uses the Neurotomic Protocore to steal the intelligence from the rest of the human race to enhance his own. All that "fat" his BadFuture self has? That's all grey matter.
