* EnmityWithAnObject: "He" is nothing more than a series of spawning algorithms. Valve and the players all anthropomorphism "him".

** Valve never really updated or improved the Director's control over Special Infected, so he won't use Versus player tactics like suicide-bomber Boomers to ruin your day. [[TemptingFate But don't think for a second that he won't use Special combos together to really mess you up.]]

* GlassCannon: While it has more health than say the Boomer, the Hunter has mid-range health and requires itself to be very close to the survivors to attack.

* RoarBeforeBeating: The Charger lets out a distinctive roar when he charges.



* FoeTossingCharge: There's no standing between a Witch and her prey. Best case scenario, she'll shove you out of her path as if you weren't there; worst case scenario, she settles for killing you instead.



* GlassCannon: As far as being one of the most powerful Special Infected, she is this in comparison to the [[MightyGlacier Tank]].

to:

* GlassCannon: As far as being one of the most powerful Special Infected, she is this in comparison to the [[MightyGlacier Tank]]. But ''only'' in comparison to the Tank, as [[LightningBruiser she's still tougher than every other Special Infected by a wide margin]].



* KillItWithFire: Best way to deal with her. It's even an [[BurnTheWitch achievement]].

to:

* KillItWithFire: Best way to deal with her. It's even an [[BurnTheWitch achievement]]. That being said, it may not be the best idea if she's already gunning for someone else, since setting a startled Witch on fire causes her to attack you instead.


Added DiffLines:

* NoSavingThrow: On Expert and Realism, the Witch's attack skips incapacitation and straight-up kills the victim.


Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: It's easy to miss amidst the panicked gunfire, but when the Witch kills a survivor, she will pause, look down at her hands, and run away crying.


Added DiffLines:

* SheatheYourSword: One of the easiest ways to deal with a Witch is to simply walk around her and be on your way; if you don't go out of your way to aggravate her, she'll leave you alone. But if she's blocking the way, [[ThisIsGonnaSuck have fun with that]].


Added DiffLines:

* DamageSpongeBoss: The Tank doesn't have any of the zombie gimmicks of the other Specials. He's incredibly tough and strong enough to punch objects and people around and throw rocks, and that's all he needs.

Added DiffLines:

* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: The boomer's bile can be crippling since it attracts any infected to the unlucky player. However if you kill the boomer then collect the bile. You can throw it out of a window and onto a nearby rooftop, causing the infected to charge towards it to their deaths. Thereby giving you some breathing space.

* HeroicBSOD: It's either this or a bug, but if one of the survivors dies Ellis will not speak for the rest of the campaign.

* GeniusDitz: Despite his CloudCuckoolander status, he is pretty damn technologically inclined and smart, it's hinted that he may be the most intelligent of the 4 survivors. He is a mechanic after all. Ellis is often the one to formulate a plan on how to escape out of the area they're in. At the very least, it's usually Ellis who suggests filling up the show car with gasoline or turning on the stage show in the carnival.

* NiceGuy: When you get past his CloudCuckoolander tendencies, Ellis is probably the most friendly and optimistic survivor in the series.

* INeedAFreakingDrink: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. Upon entering the bar in the first level of The Parish, Ellis may say that he could go for a cold one right about now. While it may be just Ellis wanting a nice cold beer, the stress of the ZombieApocalypse may have made the desire to drink a bit stronger.
