** Also, Peter shares his first name with a certain [[PeterPan boy who can fly]] (also known as [[ManChild "The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up"]]). This is especially significant in the first episode, where we are led to believe that flight is Peter's primary ability.

* DisproportionateRetribution: After being turned down by his long-time crush, he ''wipes out an entire town'' and goes on to ''try and destroy New York City''. This guy does ''not'' take rejection well.

* DisproportionateRetribution: After being turned down by his long-time crush, he ''wipes out an entire town'' and goes on to ''try and destroy New York City''. This guy does ''not'' take rejection well. Admittedly this may have been more of a case of him giving up on his humanity and deciding to embrace his Dark Side.

* GoingNative: Mohinder works with Mr. Bennet to take down the Company from within, but eventually becomes convinced that the Company is really the heroic organization and Bennet was misleading him.

Added DiffLines:

* Hypocrite: When he Peter are at odds with each other during the first half of Volume 3, he calls Peter out on him working with criminals... in spite of the fact that they are working to stop Peter's father, who is ''MUCH WORSE.'' Somewhat Justified because of the fact that Peter is a little too trusting, and does not realize that they will likely kill him later. Or at least one of them will.

** The best example comes in season 3, wherein a Mexican-standoff hostage situation, rather than using telekinesis or time-stopping, he uses newly acquired super-speed to attack one of the enemies.

** One particularly bad instance has him confront a threat who had the power of super healing by running at her... fortunately, he had accidentally gained SuperSpeed, but he had no clue. If he hadn't, his plan against a gun-wielding person who cannot be hurt was "run at her."



* IdiotHero: The best way to describe him is "a wet match in a dark cave". Interestingly, he becomes much more intelligent when [[spoiler:his power is changed from being able to copy an infinite number of other powers at the same time to only being able to copy one at a time.]] This gives the impression that he carries a very special kind of IdiotBall, which could best be described as an Idiot Rubber Band Ball: [[spoiler:while each power he copies only adds a single rubber band, they add up to an enormous ball that fills his head entirely, leaving no space for grey matter. The one "rubber band" he is later limited to leaves him room for a brain.]]

* TheAce: On a number of occasions he's referred to by other characters as the most powerful of all Supers. While this might not be true in an absolute sense (at full power the likes of Future Peter and Arthur Petrelli outclass him), he is both extremely powerful and definitely the most infamous top-tier Super, and has also managed to survive while the few Supers more powerful than him have gotten themselves killed.

* 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 kills her by embracing her while they're struggling with a pair of scissors.

* BroughtDownToBadass: Losing his original powers forced to become more creative and resourceful in a fight, and when he got a whole new power, his newfound intelligence allowed him to use them with more effectiveness. Long story short: the less powers he has, the more badass he is.

** In Volume 5, thanks to his DiscardAndDraw ability, Peter now mainly fights by copying an enemy's power then fighting them with it one-on-one. Including a superspeed knife fight with Edgar early in the season, and his climactic Earthbender vs. Earthbender battle with Samuel Sullivan in the season finale.

* IdiotHero: A dramatic example. He's technically the most powerful character in the show, but the writers have accidentally made him TooPowerfulToLive. However this is balanced out by his naiveness and overly trusting nature which ends up getting him and others into a ''lot'' of trouble. For example, in Season 2, KnightTemplar Adam tricks him into releasing a virus that could wipe out mankind (though Peter isn't aware of it) and despite many characters including people he [[TrueCompanions is close to]] telling him Adam was evil, he refused to believe them simply because he just could ''not'' fathom the idea of Adam being evil simply because he helped him. Well that, and the fact that [[spoiler: Adam saved his brother's life]], but still.

* DramaPreservingHandicap: By the end of the first season, Peter has discovered that he permanently gains the abilities of any superhuman he encounters, just by being near them. It would quickly become [[GodModeSue impossible to create a challenge]] for a guy who can teleport, manipulate time, turn invisible, has a HealingFactor that makes him virtually unkillable, can fly at supersonic speeds, reads minds, predicts the future, and on and on and on. To mitigate this problem, he holds on to the IdiotBall constantly. In subsequent seasons, he is given LaserGuidedAmnesia and later DePowered so he can carry the Ball less frequently.

Claire's family life is [[TangledFamilyTree taken to the next dysfunctional level]] when her biological origins reveal her to be the daughter of Nathan Petrelli and Meredith Gordon, two people with abilities, who were told she died in a fire at 18 months old. However, her grandmother, Angela Petrelli, also an evolved human, knew she survived and has been hiding Claire from the [[AncientConspiracy Company]], even after arranging her adoption with the Bennet family. Family drama ensues, particularly when she learns Nathan and Angela are willing to let New York blow up so he can become president. It's okay, though, because she inspires Nathan's HeelFaceTurn and New York is saved. Armed with quite the assortment of daddy-issues, Claire continues her [[MoralityPet talent]] for inducing [[HeelFaceTurn Heel-Face Turns]] in dad #1, Noah, throughout volumes two to three and again with dad #2, Nathan, in volume four. She even dates a guy who can fly, just like her biological father, Nathan.
