* AlasPoorVillain: Vaas may have been a homicidal maniac who needed to be killed, but Citra nonetheless mourns his death since he was still her brother and only became a monster due to [[TheCorrupter Hoyt's Influence]] on him. Jason in turn promises to kill Hoyts for what he did to Vaas and how it caused his own brother's death.

* WickedCultured: Mixed with SophisticatedAsHell. He makes Jason stand there and listen as he recounts how the knife wound up on Rook, a story that involves ancient Chinese history, gets genuinely angry when Jason refers to the Chinese knife ''as'' a knife (it's a piece of fucking art, mate!), quotes Robert Frost, and generally exhibits cunning along with all the evil.

* FreudianExcuse: Technically, [[AllThereInTheManual it's only in his character bio]], but Hoyt apparently had a "[[AbusiveParents a brutal upbringing by his father,]] a South African mining boss". Upon growing up, Hoyt "[[WellDoneSonGuy sought to]] [[EvilerThanThou outdo him]]", and did so by [[TheStarscream subverting and murdering the original leader of the Pirates]], [[FromNobodyToNightmare before expanding across the Rook Islands as]] [[ArmsDealer gun runner]], [[MadeASlave sex trafficker]], [[HiredGuns and leader of a ruthless legion of mercenaries.]]

* WickedCultured: A big fan of [[RichardWagner Wagnerian]] orchestra. He even has a preference for European rather than American orchestral renditions, claiming the brass section in the latter to be "too bombastic". Rather hypocritical considering his composer of choice.

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Over the course of the game, he goes from a nerve-wracked ActionSurvivor trying to save his remaining friends from an AxCrazy {{Pirate}} to a HotBlooded BloodKnight hell-bent on revenge, a different kind of insanity to counter the BigBad, and then a ruthlessness not far from the BigBad.
** This fittingly ties into what the Jackal said all the way back in Far Cry 2. He claimed that tapping into the darkness to overcome your enemies can be useful - but if you get lost in it, then you become worse than your enemies. Ultimately you lose sight of who you really are, in the dark, and that can wind up killing you.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Can inflict this on numerous different enemies in gameplay. From a story perspective [[spoiler: kills Buck, Vaas, and Hoyt in this manner. Vaas even jams a knife into Jason's torso before Jason manages to kill Vaas, so he's been on both ends - and, unusually, ''survived'' being the receiver. Partially subverted however as WordOfGod confirms Jason was actually stabbed with a hypodermic needle.]]

* ActionSurvivor: She is the only ActionSurvivor other than Jason to escape her predicament on her own. Going by her injuries, she was also attacked at least once by either a tiger or leopard during her escape, but still managed to get away. The only reason she needs help when Jason finds her is because she didn't know she was running through a field of toxic plants while bleeding, and was poisoned.
