* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty: A strange example, in that Vaas clearly doesn't believe Jason Brody is a match for him, yet would prefer to tie a cinderblock to his legs and toss him off a waterfall or [[BondVillianStupidity leave him tied up in a burning hotel]] than just murder him personally.
** His "definition of insanity" speech implies that he thinks he ''can't'' kill Jason, as every consecutive attempt he makes on Jason's life fails, one way or another.

* CombatPragmatist: Jason can take on the pirates guns blazing if need be. Or he can just smack the lock off a tiger's cage and run like hell as it mauls its captors. Hey, a free outpost is a free outpost.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Subverted. He manages to [[spoiler: figure out that Foster is actually Brody and that Sam is betraying him]] but then Hoyt delves into BondVillainStupidity by monologuing about how he's outsmarted them and, instead of simply having one of his gun-toting mooks shoot Jason, forces Brody into a game of poker to death. And it's not even that savvy to begin with since [[spoiler: he had a video showing Jason and Riley identified him as his brother.]]



* {{Foil}}: To his own Dragon, Vaas. Where Vaas is an unpredictable, deranged lunatic who is as likely to kill someone in a frenzy as he is to have an amicable chat with them about the nature of insanity, Hoyt is a ''relatively'' calm, calculating, stable businessman with a pragmatic approach to problems. Where Vaas falls victim to his own madness at times, proving to be GenreBlind often when dealing with Jason, Hoyt is much more DangerouslyGenreSavvy. This even extends to their relative domains and minions. The northern island ruled by Vaas is wild and overgrown, with lots of dangerous animals and pirates roaming about without much in the way of organization. The southern island ruled by Hoyt is more controlled, with more open grassland, urbanized areas, military-style outposts, and frequent patrols by well-armed and organized privateers.

* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:To Citra and the Rakyat. Jason is little more than a useful tool with delusions of grandeur. While they may have not expected him to do quite as well as he later proves capable of being, it's obvious Citra never expected to let him be the island ruler he has visions of becoming.]]

* DragonWithAnAgenda: Despite working for Hoyt (and by extension, affiliated with Vaas), He wants that knife [[spoiler: and Jason]] bad and he's willing to send Jason to kill pirates (that he's probably affiliated with) for him to get both.

* {{Yandere}}:[[spoiler: She is ''very'' possessive of Jason. In the 'Save Friends' ending, she goes ballistic once Jason starts cutting his friends loose. In spite all of that, however, [[TakingTheBullet she throws herself upon Dennis's knife]] [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere if Jason rejects her]], even though she, of all people, logically would've taken his decision the worst. Whatever else one can say, Citra cares about Jason. In her own way.]]

* ItGetsEasier: Jason is horrified the first time he has to kill someone. The hundreds of other times after that? Not so much.

* WickedCultured: Though not to the same degree as Buck and Hoyt. Vaas' "Definition of Insanity" quote is one attributed to BenjaminFranklin (though the exact origin is a bit fuzzy; it's also associated with AlbertEinstein, author Rita Mae Browne and a Chinese proverb) and while not precisely canon, he prepares a dinner with some first-class presentation for his captive during the live action promotional videos, and briefly holds forth on the philosophical subject of whether all men are brothers.
