* AccidentalHero: He shovels the walk to the soup kitchen in ''Cabin Fever'' causing poor people to be able to eat there, but he didn't even know it ''was'' a soup kitchen in the first place. He just wanted to find the letter he had sent to the church.



* DirtyCoward: Greg lives up to the "wimpy" part of the title of the series in many ways. He's fine with letting Rowley take the blame for scaring kindergarteners in the first book when it was Greg who did it in the first place. Another example is in "Old School". After being caught trying to flee with Frew and Billy, Greg [[NeverMyFault instantly blames it all on Billy]] to get out of trouble.



* {{Jerkass}}: Manny is very bratty and spoiled, and throws fits to get what he wants. He even [[spoiler:almost starved his family to death in the middle of a blizzard just because [[DisproportionateRetribution nobody taught him to tie his shoes.]]]]

* ChildProdigy: Showing signs of this by ''The Long Haul.'' He can speak perfectly fluent conversational Spanish, understand decimal numbers, and give accurate directions ''in Spanish'' to a place that he's only seen once in his life (that, or he figured out how to use the family's GPS, which is impressive by itself).

However when Greg turned up the volume and effects, Heather's birthday party is ruined and her dress is messed up. Heather is a complete asshole to the main characters, and the destruction of her sweet 16 is fitting punishment for her behavior. You can actually cheer on Rodrick for doing this, jerk he may be.
