Added DiffLines:

* ParentsArePeople: While he clearly loves his sons, he's not exactly father of the year material; it's made clear at several points that there's plenty of responsibility on his part for the difficult relationship he has with Frasier and Niles, having rarely made much of an effort to connect with them before the series started and spending more time at his favourite bar than with his sons.

%%* LargeHam* LargeHam: Loud, boisterous, and a total DramaQueen.



* NotSoAboveItAll: Though it's less common on his own show than on ''Cheers'', Frasier is definitely capable of cutting loose and hanging out with the boys. Zigzagged when it comes to rivalries with those who try to embarrass him or show him up -- on occasion he'll sink to their level and get them back at their own game, other times he'll be satisfied with making sure they know he ''can'' get them back but lets them off the hook.
** One notable example is when while alone, he shifts from playing a classic piece to a boisterous rendition of "Great Balls of Fire", then back to classical when Martin and company come in.
** When Woody drops by, Frasier goes into his beer-swilling ''Cheers'' persona. Martin is amazed.

* MyBelovedSmother: Her mother appears in one episode, and she's more prudish than a librarian, and believes Ronee is one, too. (However, Ronee ReallyGetsAround, since she was a teen.)

to:

* MyBelovedSmother: MaamShock: In the final episode, she begins to tell newborn David, "And I'm your Grandma!", then states immediately, "No, I can't get used to that."

** In the same episode, Frasier is caught covered in whip cream with Kim by Martin, Ronee and her mother. After her mother and Martin leave in shock, Ronee grins and pretends the trope.
--->''' Ronee:''' You may get away with this now, young man, but once I'm your mother...\\
'''Frasier:''' ''(rolling his eyes)'' Oh, GetOut!



* RomanticFalseLead: At first it looks like she's going to be another one or two-episode love interest for Frasier. Midway through the episode where she's introduced however, we find out that she never had the slightest bit of interest in Frasier, and that it's actually ''Martin'' she wants.

-->"I suppose all brothers are like that. Mine certainly were. Everything was a contest! Who could the run the fastest, jump the highest. They even had this strange one where they'd take little brother Michael, put him in a potato sack and see who could roll him the farthest over the frozen lake out back. They loved that game! Until that year the spring thaw set in early and poor Michael went right through the ice. Ooh, they caught hell for that one, they did. Caught it worse a week later when Michael's toe finally fell off. Michael cried and cried, until they told him to put it under his pillow for the toe fairy! And then when he got five quid for it, why it was all they could do to stop him from sawing off the rest of them!"

* GoldDigger: Eventually answered in one episode, in which Niles addresses the big unspoken question: did he marry Maris for her money. He says no, but it was a delightful bonus.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Like his sons, but slightly reversed. While Frasier and Niles are stuck-up and haughty on the surface but have sweeter sides that become apparent later, Martin's cordial and friendly at first with some jerkiness that becomes apparent when you live with him.

Added DiffLines:

* TalkativeLoon: In spades, often about her HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood. In fact, the Cranes eventually start fearing some of her stories.
