* DumbJock
* EasilyForgiven: For leading Rachel on to get her to rejoin the club. He got a WhatTheHellHero for it, but it was quickly forgotten. Also, his earlier involvement in bullying Kurt. Not to mention how he cheated on Rachel with Quinn - but even when he was explicitly with Quinn, Rachel still wanted to be with him. Also, outing Santana - she slapped him for it, but in the next episode Will called it "unprovoked," and Santana hugged Finn when he sang her a song.
* FollowInMyFootsteps: In "Yes/No," he tells Will that he wants to join the army so he could be a good man like his father was. This backfires spectacularly.

* TheQuarterback: Provides the image. Literally known as Finn "[[Recap/GleeS5E3TheQuarterback The Quarterback]]" Hudson. He is the well-respected QB, who has the loyalty of his team enough to get them to join the glee club, and with the help of Sam, Santana, and Bieste reforms them to not bully people. He was also decent enough in the beginning to not actually partake in the terrorizing of students that his teammates did, and lets them prepare for the standard bullying he approves of. Confident and truthful enough to dump his AlphaBitch cheerleader girlfriend for one of the school "losers", and after a couple of seasons manages to regain his status. Rallies the football team, the glee club, and the school.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Subverted in season one, and heartbreakingly played straight in "Duets," when he loses his virginity to Brittany and is devastated because it meant nothing to her and ''everything'' to him.
