* InsufferableGenius: Tries to act like it's better than you. If you're a drooling imbecile, you can piss it off even further.

For all of it's book learning and Mentant usage, though, they failed to truly take in account the fact that biogel causes long-term mental degradation and while they can figure out a way to stem its effects they still will have to suffer for it.



* {{Tsundere}}: It's initially very rude and hostile, but with the right conversation paths it eventually admits it misses being in your body and experiencing some of the positive biological processes that comes with it.

If the Courier leaves them behind with Neutral or Good karma, their brain refuses to go into a Think Tank out of a long distant respect for their old body.

* InsufferableGenius: Most of them.
* JerkAss: Klein and Borous always, and 0 if he's in a bad mood. On the other hand, Dala thinks you're just ''fascinating'' and 8... seems... nice. [[TheUnintelligible Maybe]].
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: It's abundantly clear that Dr. Klein has absolutely no idea what the heck he's doing. Dr. 0 is ''seemingly'' almost as bad - his scientific speciality is apparently limited to "taking robots apart" and he tends to destroy his equipment a lot - but he is willing to admit that he is not all that good at the thing he ostensibly specialises in, and he did produce both Muggy and Securitrons that are ''better'' than [=RobCo=]'s Mk. II in some hardware respects despite centuries of being in the open with no maintenance. [[note]]Their [[CrushKillDestroy software]] did not fare quite as well.[[/note]] The rest of the Think Tank seem genuinely skilled and productive in their areas of expertise, [[EvilutionaryBiologist Dr. Borous]] [[DemonicSpiders dangerously so]]. Their general lack of sense can be attributed to centuries of Mentat abuse, as well as that the biogel that the brains float in is corrosive over time. All of the scientists were geniuses when they were human. [[note]]According to WordOfGod, Klein is more the [=Lab Director/College Dean=] than the biggest genius. He's there to push them around and keep the group somewhat focused on research since, relatively speaking, he's the most [[OnlySaneMan sane]] and has the most forceful personality.[[/note]]

* NotSoAboveItAll: One of the ways to convince your brain to join you again is to remind it of a particular weapon skill that your character may be using. If any of the weapons are at a high enough level, it'll admit that it actually misses the feeling of controlling a weapon a bit.

* NiceGuy: Despite speaking only in static, 8 comes off as a lot more approachable and helpful compared to the other Think Tanks.

* NotSoDifferent: When it lambasts the Courier for constantly charging into danger, the Courier can counter that since it's...well, his/her brain, then those actions are just as much its responsibility as his/her's. The brain, in turn, counters that those are all simply glands at work, and thus the Courier ''is'' the one to blame. But with a high enough medical skill, the Courier points out that the brain ''contains'' most glands, [[FunnyMoments unless it's trying to pin everything on the thyroid]].

* ProperlyParanoid: Mobius studied the post-apocalyptic economy extensively and correctly guessed that bottlecaps would be used as currency, which is why the Sink accepts them. He's also said to have made ''multiple'' Plan Bs and Cs in case something goes wrong, including ones he ''intentionally had mindwiped'' as a precaution.Though all those could be for nothing depending on the Courier's choices.
