* BreakoutCharacter: Very popular with the readers; he's starred in his own comics, both short gag stories and album-length adventures. In the Hanna-Barbera cartoon he has a larger role than in the comics, and tends to show up even in episodes based on albums where he didn't appear at all. In 2006 he even got his own animated series, and he's a regular character in the 2010 animated series about the Daltons.

* ContinuitySnarl: Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, William and Jack swap names. It happens first in their début story (for the first half, William is the shorter and Jack the taller; then it switches in the second half, making William taller and Jack shorter), and in some stories afterwards. In the 2006 movie and the 2010 animated series, the two brothers' names are likewise swapped.

* {{Villain Protagonist}}s: In several stories the focus is more on their attempts to outwit Lucky Luke than it is on Luke himself. They've also appeared solo in several stories, and like Rantanplan, have starred in their own animated series in 2010, "Les Dalton", where Lucky Luke doesn't even appear and the focus is on the Daltons as they try to escape from prison.

Added DiffLines:

* BornLucky: Hence the nickname, he has great luck tracking and serves as PlotArmor in situation Luke would have been shot dead without ever be able to react to.


Added DiffLines:

* HumbleHero: He walks away before being thanked, turn down bounties by asking the sheriff to give it to charity and his only replies when someone ask him if he is THE Lucky Luke is a nonchalant "yep".


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoStoic: It's rare to see Luke actually moved and when he does his expression barely change. A Jewish mom notices he is touched by her grandson's violin performance when he lets his straw hang out of his mouth a bit more and after reading an old friend last request he is unable to roll a cigarette.

* StrongerThanYouLook: Like Luke she can go toe to toe with men bigger than her and even arm wrestle them.

* ExtremeOmnivore: An even worse case than Averell Dalton. Among other things, he's eaten coal nuggets, bath water and [[LethalChef Averells cooking]].



* BookDumb: In his own mind he is by far the smartest of his brothers, but he is completely uneducated and unfamiliar with anything you'd learn to school. To give an example, he thinks Christopher Colombus was the first authentic American.

* BookDumb: In his own mind he is by far the smartest of his brothers, but he is completely uneducated and unfamiliar with anything you'd learn to school. To give an example, he thinks Christopher Colombus was the first authentic American. His one area of expertise is crime.



* CardCarryingVillain: Out of all the Daltons, he is by far the most proud to be a criminal, to the point that when he was pardoned once (due to the telegraph operator screwing up a message telling the prison to release an inmate named Joe ''Milton'') Joe refused to leave, feeling insulted, and had to be thrown out.



* TheUnfavourite: He has big issue with Ma Dalton liking Averell more than him.

to:

* TheUnfavourite: He has big issue with Ma Dalton liking Averell more than him. However, she eventually reveals that Joe is actually her favorite because he's just like his father. The reason she's so hard on him is because he's the smartest and toughest of his brothers and needs to be able to look after them, since they'd likely get themselves killed without him.



* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Despite his stupidity, he can be just as dangerous as his brothers when he wants to be.



* HarmlessVillain: His occasional bouts of competency aside, Averell isnt a very motivated criminal and probably wouldnt be one if it wasnt for his family. When the Daltons briefly went their separate ways to see who could do best on their own, Averell ended up becoming a hugely popular chef (albeit with occasionally unscrupulous business practices). In comparison, Jack become a corrupt casino boss, William a corrupt mayor and Joe just went on a huge crime spree.



* ComedicSpanking: Luke cant exactly shoot him, so his go-to punishment before hauling Billy to jail is a thourough spanking.



* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Baby the only thing that could stop him from crying was using his dad's revolver as a sucker (wasn't loaded) at 6 he committed his first robbery and at his current age, probably not even a teen, he terrorized a whole town.

* WickedCultured: Downplayed; he is a big fan of the Robin Hood book, which is pretty tame by today's standards, but considering he lives in a setting where literature isn't exactly common amongst outlaws, he is perceived as one. Played straight in the movie, where he frequently quotes Shakespeare.

Shakespeare. In his debut album, that was the trademark of his brother Frank.
