* AmbiguousSituation: Before his powers were clarified, he displayed SuperSpeed, SuperStrength, SuperToughness, and {{Flight}} in his earlier appearances. It was later shown that he shouldn't have had these specific abilities, strictly speaking. WordOfGod indicates that this was probably him getting creative with telekinesis.

He's reinstated by the Company in Volume 3 to help re-capture the escaped villains (including a very awkward brief partnership with a seemingly reformed Sylar that quickly degenerates into the two attempting to off each other). In Volume 4, Noah is hired to help co-head Unit 26 in its crusade to capture and imprison people with abilities (it later turns out he's acting as a ReverseMole loyal (in his own roundabout way) to the interests of supers, particularly daughter Claire and his real boss, Claire's grandmother, Angela Petrelli).

* LoveMartyr: He lets Elle [[GoodThingYouCanHeal kill him repeatedly]] because he loved her and later comments on he killed the only woman who ever loved him.
* MagicPants: When he's locked up in a cell with Elle, she blasts him with enough electricity to rip him into pieces but his pants stays on while the rest of his clothing is destroyed.

*** "The Hunger" is his need to know more. Humans are naturally curious creatures and Sylar is still human, if he understands how everything works except for abilites, it makes sense that he would have "hunger" to figure them out.
* MotiveDecay: Sylar's motivation has gone from "I want to be special" (first series) to "I have an uncontrollable Hunger which makes me lust after killing to get people's abilities" (second). By the third, though, he seemed to have decided that "this is just who I am and I'm happy with it." Now his aim seems to be simply KillAllHumans with abilities - Danko points out that "if we succeed, you'll be the only one left", and Sylar just smiles and agrees. After, he want to be the President replacing the actual. In final season, he want to be a good person. Believing that, without his abilities, he would not be a monster, Sylar asks Matt to rid him of them.

* {{Troll}}: In Season 4, when he's trapped inside Parkman's head, he decides that he's going unleash as much havoc as possible upon Parkman's life in order to get what he wants, which is out of Parkman's head, and partly to entertain himself. He once kissed Angela just to make her extremely uncomfortable, which made Peter really angry.
* VillainousBSOD: Sylar suffered from it thrice: Once was when he learned about his potential role in destroying New York City. The second is shortly after he gains his chameleon abilities, where it becomes apparent that he is losing touch with his memories and especially his sanity, where he is forced to write "I Am Sylar" in such a way that would potentially expose his survival just to ensure he held onto his sense of identity. The third (and presumably [[HeelFaceTurn final]]) time he experienced this was when he is sealed off. Sylar also was implied to have suffered one after Hiro meddled the timeline.

* WildCard: Sylar is on no one's side but his own. His actions are good or bad if he thinks he's got something to gain from either side's offers. But lying to him to get him on your side just results in a lot of blood and him defecting to the other side by default.

* WouldntHurtAChild: He generally leaves kids under puberty alone, although he's not above voicing threats at them. Teens and young adults like Jackie, Luke, or Claire herself, are fair game although even that depends on his mood.

** It would appear that this hunger isn't always confined to gaining new abilities and it could be a combination of a side-effect of Sylar's ability and a psychological addiction. Peter copied Sylar's ability for a few episodes at the beginning of season three. Peter is normally a sweet person who just wants to help others, but upon gaining Sylar's ability, he goes completely apeshit and starts trying to rip people's heads open, just like Sylar. It should be noted that Peter isn't really doing it to understand how abilities work. Peter tries to saw open Future Nathan's skull to better understand his thought process and attempts to do the same thing to Angela when he gets back to the present so he will know her secrets. It was more about learning how someone's thought process worked for Peter than acquiring abilities, especially because Peter had already copied Nathan and Angela's abilities.)

* GoodThingYouCanHeal: When he took Claire's abilities, he basically stops trying to avoid getting hurt. [[NeckSnap Snap his neck?]] He sets it right back. Go ahead, shoot him, he'll get right back up. And when Elle blasts him full of all the electricity she can muster, all that gets destroyed are [[ShirtlessScene his clothes]]. This got especially glaring since up until he had her power he was a very good fighter and deflected bullets with ease so he never got hit in the first place. Jamming a shard of glass into the back of skull would've never happened to pre-regeneration Sylar. Now he treats his body like a meat shield.

* BigDamnVillains: In the third season, [[spoiler:a depowered Peter heads off with the Haitian to kill his father and destroy the Formula. Before Peter shoot Arthur, Sylar shows up, complete with recently stolen lie detection power, to ask Arthur if he's really a Petrelli. Naturally, Arthur lies, thus causing Sylar to allow the bullet he had grabbed in thin air to kill Arthur stone dead permanently]]. Sylar actually lampshades the fact that he prevents Peter from becoming a murderer. So actually he wasn't here to do the job, just to keep Peter from having remorse.

* AbusiveParent: His adoptive father neglected him a few times, and his mother seemed to be domineering towards him, wanting him to be perfect, even ascending to the Presidency (which evidently contributed a lot to his character). In addition, when she discovers his powers [[ShoutOut she reacts like]] Carrie's mother in ''{{Carrie}}'' and tries to kill him, but Sylar inadvertently does so by embracing her.

* WouldntHurtAChild: He generally leaves kids under puberty alone, although he's not above using them as extortion pawns or threatening them. Teenagers, like the AlphaBitch at Claire's school, Luke, or Claire herself, are fair game although even that depends on his mood.
