* ManChild: Teenager Dexter and Old Dexter could be excused, but FutureBadass Dexter cements it by whining he should've been the one to save the future and goes on with the plan of creating robots to destroy Dee Dee.

* DependingOnTheWriter: How nice or annoying she is varies from episode to episode.

to:

* DependingOnTheWriter: Gets hit with this pretty bad. How nice or annoying she is varies wildly from episode to episode.episode. In some episodes, she's rather innocent and her destructive tendencies are accidental and due to playful clumsiness. In others, she's far more malicious and intentionally antagonistic.


Added DiffLines:

** A subtle moment from the show's opening titles. Dexter frantically presses a button, attempting to turn on a large light. Dee Dee briefly gives Dexter an aside glance and coy smile and plugs a cord into a nearby socket, causing the light to turn on.

* [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Little Brother]]: To an extent.



* AbusiveParents / BumblingDad: As shown in several episodes, such as "Better off Wet," Dexter's dad can be a bully, embarrassing and pulling childish pranks on his family for his own enjoyment. These often include pushing his family in the pool, and very manipulative behavior.

Added DiffLines:

* BumblingDad: Both parents are bumbling, though their primary flaw was being clueless to Dexter's Laboratory (and he has a memory erasing gun, so its more like they look stupid by comparison to their supergenius son.) Dexter's father turns out to be a stunt biker when his job is finally revealed (up to then, he left every day dressed for an office job), making him much cooler and more competent than the typical example.

to:

* HartmanHips: The page image. In fact, when DeeDee gets turned into a duplicate of Mom in one episode, she feels her hips with awe.
* {{Housewife}}: She seemed to have little characterization outside of her housework, though it's implied at least a few times she was much more of a rebel in her youth. Her typical outfit that she wore everywhere even included yellow rubber dishwashing gloves and an apron.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narcissist}}: He has a ''very'' high opinion of himself. Case in point: in "The Parrot Trap," he built a robotic parrot purely so he could hear it repeat his own self-indulgent praises.


Added DiffLines:

* BigSisterBully: Her treatment of Dexter has shades of this at times. In one episode, she stole Dexter's money right out of his hands to buy something, and when Dexter asks why she did so, she tells him point-blank, "You're so small and weak that I ''could''!"

* EvilLaugh: "HA haha! HA haha haha!" The fact that he cries, coughs and ''chews'' in the same way makes it border on being a VerbalTic.

*** That happened in [[https://youtu.be/gh6E1HZvLxY?t=5s just one episode]]; it wasn't just Mandark either, '''''everything''''' had that rhythm: the bird singing outside his window, Mandark's alarm clock, the Rice-Krispies-like popping of his breakfast cereal, his mother's impatient foot-tapping...
