* WideEyedIdealist: Always tries to do good with her family, like bringing them on trips, inviting friends over, and trying to get kids to be more active, but they never ''ever'' pan out and always end up making the situation worse for the main character. She still keeps trying anyway.

* CasanovaWannabe: Often attempts to get with various girls, but he's so bad at it that it ends up that the girls in question never even realize he exists or he ends up looking like a perverted loser in front of them.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He has his moments, notably in ''Cabin Fever'' where when Rowley anonymously snitches on Greg for accidentally vandalizing the school, he doesn't pull Rowley into it and takes the punishment by himself. He also comforts Rowley after a particularly cruel breakup, decides to hide a diamond ring worth ''millions'' so his mom's family can't tear each other apart again, is genuinely furious when a NiceGuy gets landed in detention, and utterly ''disgusted'' at how a bunch of dropouts in ''Hard Luck'' stole thousands and thousands of science projects and ruined the Hero Points scheme all for a quick buck.
