* ThePeterPrinciple: He has absolutely ''zero'' understanding of the Ghostbusters' technology, yet legally has the right to screw with both it and them. [[PillarOfLight Hilarity does not ensue]]. He's just a petty tyrant who thinks being a federal regulator means he can do anything.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Dumbass}}: Let's see; he believes that mass numbers of average people can be induced to see {{Shared Mass Hallucination}}s. He knows ''absolutely nothing'' about chemicals, radiation, or any of the other things he claims to be harassing the Ghostbusters about.
* DumbassHasAPoint: Despite the above, he ''does'' have a good point that the Ghostbusters are using some extremely suspicious and dangerous technologies in an equally unprofessional manner. Of course, his response is every bit as stupid.


Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanHasAPoint: He's up against the quintessential trifecta of what government inspectors are supposed to inspect; unprofessional, irresponsible and downright ''dangerous'' actions by private individuals. However, he falls flat on his face in that [[YouAreWhatYouHate he is all those things himself]], and makes no attempt to find responsible professionals to make the Ghostbusters' operation safer; he just shows up and throws his weight around because he found a loophole to justify his presence, and just makes everything worse as government inspectors tend to do.

-->'''Ray''': He didn't die of old age, either. He was poisoned, stabbed, shot, hung, stretched, disemboweled, drawn and quartered... There was a prophecy, just before his '''''head''''' died, his last words were "Death is but a door, time is but a window: I'll be back."

* TookALevelInBadass: Double subverted. He does strap on ghostbusting equipment to help the team out in the second movie, but he's still far from {{Badass}}... at first.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Adorkable}}: Vinz Clortho when possessing Louis Tully. Unlike Zuul, who is a sinister and forceful presence, Vinz is just as dorky as the person he possessed. He describes Gozer the Traveller and his history of destruction more like an excited child than a terrifying demon.
