* StopHelpingMe: Rapidly develops this attitude towards Kornada during his trial.


Added DiffLines:

* UnwantedAssistance: Rapidly develops this attitude towards Kornada during his trial, thanks to Kornada's blurting out things that support the prosecution's case against Kornada.

** However, it's likely this won't help Mr. Kornada, as the attorney's pointed out this doesn't change the fact he tried to enrich himself at shareholders' expense. There's also a ''lot'' of evidence proving Clippy tried to warn him about the effects the program would have had and he decided to go ahead.

There's also a ''lot'' of evidence proving Clippy tried to warn him about the effects the program would have had had, as well as nearly provoking a war between two robot factories, none of which Blunt knew and he decided to go ahead.all of which was completely documented.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Played with. Clippy comes to certain moral realizations he would have never reached without Kornada's interference. He also keeps tearing apart his own defense at his trial, to the point Blunt considers having him sequestered.

* KickedUpstairs: Repeatedly. He's currently the Vice President in charge of ''paper clips.'' This bites everyone in the rear end, when he (as a Vice President) is allowed to fill in for someone actually important and competent. [[spoiler: He immediately proceeds to think of a way to use his new position to rob a half billion people while simultaneously committing genocide via lobotomy on them.]] The trope is invoked when the Chief asks Mr. Raibert if this is what will happen to Kornada, ''again''. Raibert [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2700/fc02683.htm denies this is the case]], as the mess is far too big and public for the company to ignore. "[[{{Unishment}} It's golden parachute time for him.]]"

** Turns out to be a [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]], as Blunt has pointed out that Kornada seems to have developed Affluenza and as result Kornada feels he'll never be held accountable for his actions.
* LackOfEmpathy: Blunt has diagnosed him as having [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affluenza Affluenza]], as a result of being KickedUpstairs so many times in attempts to keep him from causing trouble.

* OffOnATechnicality: Looks like he's on his way there, as Blunt came up with a ''[[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff3000/fc02922.htm whopper]]'' of a technicality; he's ''too stupid'' to be responsible for his actions - and Clippy was ''too smart'' to have been left under his control. It's as if he accidentally nudged a car in neutral down an incline and into a crowded park; it's not his fault, the driver should have applied the parking brake AKA Ecosystems Unlimited shouldn't have given him the position in the first place.
** Conveniently, this also works towards Blunt's goal of robot genocide; when one idiot can give one genius robot a command that nearly destroys a planet, perhaps robots are too dangerous to keep around.

** See the justification seen in ItsAllAboutMe above? That was almost verbatim [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff3000/fc02920.htm his plea and opening statement]] at his trial. Blunt has to beg him to shut up.

up. Later this gives Blunt's viewpoint some credibility when he starts objecting - ''to his own defense.''
