* {{Jerkass}}: Obnoxious to an almost religious degree, devoting his life to proving that kindness is rooted in selfishness and fear. He usually gets away with it because he's the patient's only chance of survival, although the show does put a strain on your WillingSuspensionOfDisBelief in its realism, as a House who actually did suffer the consequences of his behaviour would make the show's premise impossible.

* KarmaHoudini: A downplayed case in that he ''does'' get comeuppance for his nastiness but not the maximum upset-the-status-quo kind. The man can't go an episode without doing something that would cause any normal doctor to get arrested and / or his medical license revoked yet he continues practicing medicine. He has also been physically assaulted by patients, their relatives, and even his own fellows, and once he was even shot in his office.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyBi: He's definitely into women, but has serious subtext with Wilson, and isn't shy about calling other men attractive. Whether this is actual attraction or just House being, well, [[{{Troll}} House]] depends on which fan you're talking to.

* HatesEveryoneEqually: He makes racist, sexist, and downright insulting comments about everyone of every creed and culture, but it quickly becomes apparent that he doesn't have anything against a ''particular'' group of people (except maybe idiots). House just plain hates ''everyone'', and is determined to annoy and insult each and every one of them. Individually. And it just so happens that making sexist, racist, etc. comments are a pretty surefire way to do it.

* ChildProdigy: Although older than the typical medical student (stated to be roughly Thirteen's age), she graduated high school several years early and acquired several Ph.D.'s before entering medical school.

Added DiffLines:

* NotThatKindOfDoctor: She has several PhDs, but is still working on her MD. So while she could technically call herself "Doctor Masters", to do so would be dangerously misleading.

* BullyHunter: He typifies himself this way when he starts to harass House, calling him a bully and that bullies only start changing their behavior after encountering a stronger bully.

to:

* YourCheatingHeart: He wants revenge on House for inadvertently causing his wife's suicide. Moriarty was having an affair behind her back, and told her about it only after House prompted him to while he was diagnosing her by claiming that "everything might be relevant". However, her illness turned out to be completely unrelated to her husband's infidelity.
