* AllWomenArePrudes: Every female protagonist will become invariably pissed at Lamar's attempts to hit on her. However, [[AllMenArePerverts he is being]] [[HopelessSuitor kind of]] [[AbhorrentAdmirer an idiot]] [[CasanovaWannabe about it]], and furthermore, this may be a case of IncompatibleOrientation; see AmbiguouslyGay below.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Believe it or not, he does. The most noticeable example is racism and bigotry, as he is EqualOpportunityEvil.

** Interestingly, Trevor has signs reminiscent of psychopathy and [[TheSociopath antisocial personality disorder]], but the issue is that he's [[TheMentallyDisturbed too insane]], so he fails in the moral agency.

* AmbiguousDisorder: He might be on to something here. Despite his status as the decidedly most "sane" protagonist (or should we say less villainous?), he frequently shows signs of being unable to form real attachments to people; Lamar is his only friend at the start of the game and he shows open contempt for him most of the time (he seems to stick with him only out of fear of being alone) and his love for Tanisha comes off as very self-serving. Of course, he has a massive lack of empathy, but unlike true sociopaths, he is much more self-controlled and civil, so we may be talking about some [[HollywoodPersonalityDisorder mental disorder]] left to the interpretation of the players themselves.

* TheSociopath: As mentioned in the entry for HiddenDepths, he personally believes that he fits a lot of the criteria for being one, and it frightens him.
** He might be on to something here. Despite his status as the decidedly most "heroic" protagonist (or should we say less villainous?), he frequently shows signs of being unable to form real attachments to people; Lamar is his only friend at the start of the game and he shows open contempt for him most of the time (he seems to stick with him only out of fear of being alone) and his love for Tanisha comes off as very self-serving. [[spoiler: However, his leanings on the sociopath side are best seen in ending B when he chooses to kill Michael; as he chases him on the railings, his reasoning comes straight out of the book of Spock, claiming it's "the only way, after thinking about it" and even genuinely asking Michael why he's running.]]



* TheSociopath: It's hard to tell given his AmbiguousDisorder, but ultimately subverted. While he has a very poor moral judgment (being extremely sadistic and violent), he is revealed to be capable to perform acts of kindness and loyalty, oddly enough.

** In one post-game conversation, Trevor refers to him as "the kid that [Michael] and I share." Franklin is nonplussed by this.

When he's not filling the role of the crew's designated pilot he's their designated sniper, though he doesn't really fit into either the FriendlySniper or the ColdSniper mould.
