%%* ForTheEvulz

to:

* KarmicTransformation: [[spoiler:Remember the scene where he kills a bunch of baby prawns? Suddenly, seeing him turn ''into'' a prawn is a lot more poetic.]]
** [[spoiler:It's also interesting in that it's probably what saves him in the end. If he hadn't turned entirely into a prawn and blended in with the others in District 9, he would've likely been found, captured and sliced up in an MNU laboratory.]]

* PunchClockVillain: Prior to his CharacterDevelopment.
** Even prior to this he seems appalled on what the Government is really doing with the Prawns regardless of his condition and had no clue what was going on though this in part fuels his character development. He seems to bear no ill will towards the Prawns even in the beginning. He also calls them Prawns which is considered derogatory though mainly due to lack of a better term and is really just carrying out orders, but due to his condition and the realization on what the government is doing with them he seems to better emphasize with them then he did previously.

* ActionSurvivor: When you consider that by his own species' standards, he's an average worker, though clearly an ''exceptional'' average worker, being able to achieve what humans thought only members of the aliens' leader caste (probably a subspecies) could achieve, namely, refueling and operating their ship.
** That's assuming he wasn't a high ranking officer or captain of the ship in the first place.

* {{Jerkass}}: Appears to be at first. It's tough to sympathize with him when one of his earlier scenes in the movie has him aborting a nest of prawn eggs and joking about it.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: What he eventually develops into, though any scene in which he discusses his wife implies he's been one all along. He's also appalled at the experiments MNU is running on captive prawns and refuses to shoot one during weapons testing.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: While it's hard to say how evil he is, (and even whether he qualifies as evil) even he thinks the weapons test he's put through during the movie is disgusting.
