* ActionSurvivor: Doesn't have much sea experience and yet managed to take down a shark with an oxygen tank and a shotgun.
* AudienceSurrogate: Not experienced in matters of the sea, not perfect Hero material, and basically ordinary.
* BadassBookworm: After taking a level in it.
* BusCrash: Died offscreen from a heart attack before the fourth film. Which is actually an improvement on the original idea, where he would have been killed in the opening sequence instead of his son. Roy Scheider thankfully refused to let Brody be killed by a shark after all he'd been through with them.

killed in the opening sequence instead of his son. Roy Scheider thankfully refused to let Brody be killed by here last week...and you knew it! You knew there was a shark after out there! You knew it was dangerous! But you let people go swimming anyway? You knew all he'd been through with them.those things! But still my boy is dead now. And there's nothing you can do about it. My boy is dead. I wanted you to know that.
* {{Badass}}: Brody might not be a rugged hero and even ends up being TheLoad from time to time, but he's still a highly capable man.
* BriefAccentImitation: Ellen encourages him jokingly to talk more like the locals. He trots out his, "They're out in the yahd, not too fah from the cah" line.



* HappilyMarried: With Ellen.
* TheHero: Of the first two movies, he took down two different sharks.
* HonorBeforeReason: In the first film, part of the reason he joins the hunt is because he blames himself for Alex Kitner's death.
* IgnoredExpert: In the second film, where nobody believes his claims that another killer shark is now in the area.
-->"I know what a shark looks like. I've seen one up close. And you better do something about this one, because I don't intend to go through that hell again!"

to:

* TheLoad: When he's aboard the Orca, Brody doesn't contribute all that much. He knows little about boats and less about sharks; even Hooper loses his temper with his mistakes.
* NoodleIncident: Brody never does reveal where his fear of the water comes from, cutting off his wife's attempt at an explanation and then changing the subject.
* OhCrap: Upon seeing the shark for the first time, prompting the iconic reaction, "You're going to need a bigger boat."

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He hates the water. But he overcame this after the events of the first film.
