* MrFanservice
MrFanservice: Essentially getting introduced as part-time doctor and part-time rock musician meant that this was nearly inevitable.
* PutOnABusPutOnABus: Following his accident at the end of Season 13.
** BackForTheFinale: After being absent for all of Season 14, he reappears throughout the final season (far more well-adjusted than he had been in the past), and reignites his relationship with Neela. She ends up leaving County Hospital to be with him in the antepenultimate episode.



* TheConfidant: Abby [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] that, by the end of the series, he's become a trustworthy person to come to when it for sharing one's issues. This is reinforced later when Catherine Banfield reveals her history with County General to him (she had brought her son there for treatment and he had died there) and Simon Brenner confides to Archie about getting molested as a child.

* HonorBeforeReason: Not only does she refuse to let her fatal error be covered up or used to punish the other nurses, she insists on taking full responsibility and being reprimanded despite knowing that it could cost her her job and possibly even her nursing license.

* UnresolvedSexualTension: With Carter.



* FieryRedhead



* YourCheatingHeart: Sleeps with another man while Luka is away in one of her alcohol-induced blackouts.



* EvilBrit: Not so much evil, but definitely {{Jerkass}}, initially. And Australian rather than British, but there is definitely an "Evil Token Aussie" trope which is less common than EvilBrit but still seen sometimes on American TV.

* HiddenDepths: Was later revealed that he had a wife and a daughter with what looked like Downs Syndrome and was also a war veteran. As well, his reaction to the deaths or injuries of various staff members (Mark, Gallant, Jerry, Pratt) reveals that he genuinely likes and respects them despite his gruff demeanor.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakoutCharacter: Despite originally being envisioned as a one-off character who would die in the pilot episode, Hathaway immediately resonated with audiences and became one of the show's most popular characters. By the time of Susan Lewis' departure, she had become the female lead of the show, and her coupling with Doug Ross was easily the show's most high-profile romantic pairing. Additionally, Julianna Margulies was the only main cast member in the history of the show to win an Emmy award for her performance, and also received more nominations than any other performer (for all six years she was regularly on the show).

** The murder of Lucy Knight. The ER had admitted a schizophrenic patient that Lucy had express concern over, only for Carter to brush off. The patient then ended up stabbing them both, with Carter eventually surviving while Lucy succumbed to complications in surgery. The aftermath provides enough trauma to send Carter over the edge and into drug addiction.

* YouAreInCommandNow: When Mark Greene leaves, he instructs Carter to "set the tone", just as Morgenstern had told him in the pilot episode. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded by Weaver afterwards.

* CharacterDevelopment: As prominent example as the show could give. He starts out the first few seasons as a TagalongKid, learning how to function in the hospital setting under Peter Benton's tutelage while also figuring out what role he wants to play as a doctor (eventually switching from surgery to emergency medicine). He then grows comfortable at County, gradually settling into the role of TheLancer for Mark Greene (especially after Doug Ross leaves Chicago). When both Greene and Benton vacate during Season 8, it is explicitly noted that he has become TheHero, a role that he carries throughout the remainder of his time on the show. By the time he is ready to leave, it is clear that the rest of the staff thinks of him as the BigGood, something made more apparent when he returns in Season 15 and a delighted Archie Morris explains to Catherine Banfield that he's a legend.
