* ArmouredClosetGay: He's not, but the idea was suggested to Frasier, who said dryly that he'd like to run the idea by him. In reality his actor is gay, making it even funnier.

** How well her supposed powers work [[DependingOnTheWriter varies]]. Sometimes she misinterprets her visions, as when divining [[TheDon Jerome Belasco's]] line of work in "A Word to the Wiseguy".
-->'''Daphne''': You're...a doctor. An osteopath, perhaps?
-->'''Jerome''': No, sorry.
-->'''Daphne''': That's funny...I see you [[ProphecyTwist hovering over people with broken bones]].

* CarpetOfVirility : While not as thick as some people's, Kelsey Grammer does have a fairly good thatch. Lampshaded in "Slow Tango In South Seattle" when Daphne says he refers to his chest hair as his "rug of love."

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foil}}: Played with; Niles often highlights and underscores a lot of Frasier's own character traits, but less by direct contrast and more because he's even ''more'' like Frasier than Frasier is.
-->'''Frasier:''' I'm a teamster compared to you!

to:

* UngratefulBastard: Especially in the early seasons, his gruff, [[TheStoic stoic]] and reserved nature, coupled with tension with his sons and bitterness at how his life has worked out can see him end up as this. In the first episode, for example, he reacts to almost everything Frasier does to try and make him feel comfortable with unconcealed hostility and disdain, and pretty much has to be guilted into saying "thank you" to Frasier for giving up his space and freedom to accommodate Martin.

* AFriendOnTheForce: Martin still has plenty of connections and friends in the Seattle PD. He often calls on these connections to get quicker or preferential treatment.
