* DependingOnTheWriter: Are they basically well-intentioned JerkassGods devoid of sympathy for individual lesser beings ("The War Games"), uncomplicatedly good protectors of the universe ("The Three Doctors"), [[TheManBehindTheCurtain pompous but weak dotards]] who don't really understand their own role or technology any more ("The Deadly Assassin"), or a powerful but almost entirely self-serving DeadlyDecadentCourt ("The Invasion of Time" and pretty much all TV and expanded universe stories subsequently)? Depends what the scriptwriter thought.

* [[OneManArmy One Alien Army]]: In the revived series, if only a few individual Daleks appear, they're usually almost unbeatable and killing even one of them becomes a huge task. Special mention to the Special Weapons Dalek, which was able to win the battle in "Remembrance of the Daleks" single handedly, and it was against other Daleks.

* '''AxCrazy''': Every single Dalek is a psychopathic KnightTemplar OmnicidalManiac. Even the "sane" ones realise what they are and tend to GoMadFromTheRevelation.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: The [[SignificantAnagram Kaleds]], ancestors of the Daleks, wear [[PuttingOnTheReich black military uniforms very close to the standard Nazi uniform]], complete with faux-Iron Crosses at the neck, use what appear to be Luger pistols, and give Roman salutes with heel clicking. They're very fond of shouting a lot, violent threats and talk about racial purity. They get painted as Nazis [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE]]. This is not surprising, since the Daleks themselves were one of the few Nazi-esque villains who were explicitly meant to be substantively Nazi-like, as opposed to just generic Nazi symbolism to make sure the [[ViewersAreMorons dimwitted]] know when to boo. It was nicely {{lampshaded}} in the 2008 episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E13JourneysEnd "Journey's End"]] where Martha teleports to Germany to play her part in activating the Osterhagen Key, and Daleks can be heard shouting in German "Exterminieren!" Possibly even more so in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E2TheDalekInvasionOfEarth "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" (1965)]] where the Daleks refer to the destruction of the human race as "the Final Solution" and greet each other by jerking their plungers upwards.

The cracks were created by the Order of Silence blowing up the TARDIS
* HigherTechSpecies: Scratch that. They are ''the'' higher tech species.

* HigherTechSpecies: Scratch that. They are ''the'' higher tech species.species. A vehicle that can travel anywhere in time and space, be BiggerOnTheInside and disguise itself as anything around it as well as generating food and drink for its whole crew...is laughably primitive by their standards.

* PetTheDog: In "Time of the Doctor", the Time Lords used the cracks in the universe (which they were responsible for) to grant the Doctor a new cycle of regenerations, allowing him to regenerate into his fourteenth incarnation. A more cynical viewpoint is that they only did so because the Doctor is the ''only one'' able to bring them back into the universe, making this a little more self-serving on their part.

* [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem Screw The Rules, We Make Them]]: The Time Lords aren't shy about letting other races know this. * SnobsVsSlobs: Gallifreyans who don't go to the Academy and become full Time Lords go into the army instead; the Academy is the more respected option - the Doctor did ''not'' want to go into the army. At. all.
