----
* EveryoneHasStandards: Did not like the Time Lord High Council during the war because of their plans to destroy the universe. By the end of the war he seems to able to work with them and defend Rassilon to the Doctor but turns on him again the second Rassilon tries to fire on innocent civilians.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: When the Doctor shots him; likely because the Doctor was not in a mood to be reasoned with.
* GenderBender: Was female up until her eleventh incarnation then went back to female in her twelfth.
* RaceLift: Goes from a white male to a black female.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Might not like the Doctor much but is willing to let them try to engage their plan to save Gallifrey. The General also generally tries to reason with the Doctor during the events of "Hell Bent" up to and including letting the Doctor shoot him.

* HannibalLecture: He has a razor sharp tongue and a unique talent for getting under the Doctor's skin, very quickly getting the measure of him and repeatedly needling by calling him an officer, describing (quite accurately) why he is one. Possibly the crowning example is in ''Heaven Sent'' when the Doctor's been making all these wonderful speeches about how Cyber!Danny is still human... then finds out that Danny needs to have the emotional inhibitor activated to fully access the Cybermen's database and get the information to defeat them and Missy.
--> Clara, watch this. This is who the Doctor is. Watch the blood-soaked old general in action. I can't see properly, sir, because this needs activating. If you want to know what's coming, you have to switch it on. And didn't all of those beautiful speeches just disappear in the face of a tactical advantage? ''Sir.''



* HeartwarmingOrphan: He grew up in a children's home.
* HeadDesk: His go-to response whenever something embarrassing happens.

to:

* HeartwarmingOrphan: He grew up in a children's home. This gets him twice the sympathy points as an adult.
* HeadDesk: His go-to response whenever something embarrassing happens.happens is find a desk and bang his head on it. Being a teacher, they are plenty in reach.



* HeroicWillpower: Most people when confronted with their ''conversion'' into Cybermen usually self destruct out of sheer emotional horror. Danny manages to hold on despite the pain to use his Cyber upgrades to track down and rescue Clara. As well as stay in control long enough to ask for her help.

* SurvivorGuilt: Deleted material from "Face the Raven" confirms he ends up with this. In trying to save his life, the Doctor is captured and sent away to parts unknown and Clara is dead as a result of what turned out to be a wholly SenselessSacrifice. To make matters worse, said deleted material reveals he, by default, is tasked with informing Clara's friends, family, and associates of her death and making sure her body is properly handled back in the outside world. TheStinger of the episode shows him turning the now-abandoned TARDIS into a memorial to her via graffiti. (One can only hope that post-"Hell Bent" either the Doctor or Clara lets him know that things didn't end up as bad as they might have been.)

* HappilyMarried: Long ago Jackie was blissfully wed to her universe's native Peter Tyler, who was unfortunately struck down dead in a head-on car collision shortly after they had Rose, but as compensation, Jackie found another version of Peter still alive in a parallel universe whose version of her had been killed, so the multiverse balanced itself out by allowing for them to be married and Rose to have a stepdad... er, well, more like a copy of her paternal dad.
