* DueToTheDead: When their prison was unlocked, it caused a nuclear explosion on the island, instantly killing the guard who just had a nice chat with them moments ago. Their first course of action then was constructing a memorial for the guard from the facility's rubble and mourning for him.

* AxCrazy: Tony's rage has made him dangerously unstable and his severe [[{{Narcissist}} narcissism]] means pissing him off can be as simple as a mild insult. He takes a lie that a Singaporean ambassador tells him, out of a fear, as a personal affront and destroys the man's entire country [[DisproportionateRetribution as payback]].

* {{Narcissist}}: Tony obsesses over being adored and only ever helps people out of the hope that they will love him for it. When he goes rouge, he continues this behavior, taking it up to believing he still deserves the undying worship of those around him even as he slaughters them, unable to look at people as anything more than toys for his amusement.

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler: Gilgamos abruptly kills him under the mistaken belief that Cary and Elliot are mutual beneficiaries in the same energy pool. Scylla's ghost is horrified, not only because his brother was just murdered, but because he and Elliot both know that Cary is the source of the power. If he dies, it's gone.]]

Naturally, she isn't very receptive (especially once she finds out that [[spoiler:Scylla's NotQuiteDead after all]] and Cary has no interest in trying to find him).



* HeWhoFightsMonsters: [[spoiler: Cary becomes almost as arrogant and unbalanced as the Plutonian soon after he develops his stronger powers. As a result, Qubit comes to fear the possibility of Cary snapping in a similar fashion, driving him to team up with Modeus and get Plutonian back from the Vespa]].

to:

* TookALevelInJerkass: More like several levels [[spoiler: after gaining his power boost]]. He immediately assumes leadership of the remaining Paradigm, gets easily angered when he thinks people aren't [[DudeWheresMyRespect in utter gratitude to him]], makes some creepy advances on Kaidan (which gets especially worse with the revelation that [[spoiler:Scylla survived that explosion in Inferno's lair]]), becomes quite a BadBoss to the new Paradigm members, and then he was willing to [[spoiler:murder Elliot to gain more power and become strong enough to kill Tony]].

to:

* YouKilledMyFather: [[spoiler: Scylla's death [[spoiler:Scylla's death]] is a big motivation.]]Cary's vendetta against the Plutonian.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: "Jerk" might be excessive, but Scylla was hot-headed, childish and a show-off (at one point, he even put Kaidan's life in danger). However, he was also remembered as a good hero and a much loved friend and teammate. This becomes more pronounced as Cary becomes increasingly unhinged as the series goes on.



* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Cary's blue. Kaidan lampshaded this, calling Scylla the alpha to Cary's beta.

%%* CardCarryingVillain* CardCarryingVillain: He's a vicious and sadistic monster who just loves being what he is.


Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Alana]]
!!Alana Patel

The ex-girlfriend of the Plutonian and later on, assistant to Max Damage.

* ActionSurvivor: Being a {{muggle}} in the ''Irredeemable'' verse doesn't give you a lot of options, but Alana is decently resourceful.
* BollywoodNerd: Downplayed - she's Indian and certainly intelligent, but isn't "nerdy".
* DistressedDamsel: She was occasionally kidnapped by Tony's enemies (mainly Max Damage), but they actually tended not to mess too much with her for fear of incurring the Plutonian's full wrath.
* {{Expy}}: Of Lois Lane.
* HotScoop: When she was a reporter.
* ItsAllMyFault: She blames herself for having a hand in Tony's fall for nearly having revealed his secret identity (making him ultimately give it up) and for breaking up with him. Max reassures her that it's not her fault, but it ''did'' definitely add on more to the pile of things that would cause Tony to snap eventually.
* TheRevealPromptsRomance: Subverted - when Plutonian revealed he and her coworker Dan Hartigan were [[ClarkKenting were one and the same]], Alana was utterly freaked out by the fact that Tony had lied to her about this double life for years and breaks up with him for it.

* LoveHungry: Combined with SecretlySelfish, this was Plutonian down to the core. He was so desperate for ''everyone's'' unconditional love and acceptance that even the slightest criticisms (from bitter {{jerkass}}es that really should've just been tuned out) made him terrified of failure and making any mistakes that could lead to losing everyone's love and admiration for him. When he does make one of those Really Bad Mistakes (which also loses him his sidekick's trust), that's when he basically throws his hands up and says "Fine."

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: At one point in his childhood, Tony killed an abusive foster father and thought it would make his foster mother love him. It only really frightened her and eventually, she ended up committing suicide. Tony tried to stop her, but it was already too late.

* DudeWheresMyRespect: A big part in what causes his eventual slide is his feeling that he's not getting the adulation and respect he "rightfully" deserves for [[spoiler:being the only being that can match the Plutonian in a straight up fight]].



* SherlockScan: He was able to deduce that the Plutionian had some kind of hand in the sound virus tragedy based on his finding an interesting piece of debris in the virus' release point (a SOS-signal device Tony gave to the scientist studying the piece of alien tech that held the lifeform). He uses this find to stun Plutonian long enough to [[spoler:reveal his power boost]].
