* CainAndAbel: Abel to Rodrick's Cain. Greg is no saint, but while Greg is a [[DirtyCoward cowardly sell-out]], Rodrick is an active sadist who delights in tormenting others. Their relationship can be seen as a sort of SensitiveGuyManlyMan dynamic played up to the worst extremes.

* BilingualBonus: In ''The Long Haul,'' he is shown to be fluent in Spanish.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Manny acts all nice and sweet around Susan and Frank, but in reality he's a complete brat and the gloves will come off if he doesn't get what he wants.

* TheChewToy: He could give [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Charlie Brown]] and [[Series/MarriedWithChildren Al Bundy]] a run for their money.

* TheChewToy: He could give [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Charlie Brown]] and [[Series/MarriedWithChildren Al Bundy]] a run for their money. The main difference is that Greg [[LaserGuidedKarma pretty much deserves it]].
* ComedicSociopathy: This and Greg's [[NeverMyFault reaction to it]] is from where most of the books' humor derives. Less so later on, though.

* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Rodrick is constantly bullying him, but they're mostly portrayed as funny. Downplayed as it is not abuse ''per se''

* HeroicComedicSociopath: Greg is ''not'' a good person, no matter what anyone tells you. The books are funny because of how much of a jerk Greg is, and while he does have an occassional PetTheDog moment, at the end of the day Greg is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin - A Wimpy Kid.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Rodrick is constantly bullying him, but they're mostly portrayed as funny. Downplayed as it is not abuse ''per se''se''. Also, Greg is not exactly the best person himself...
