%%* BreakTheCutie

to:

%%* BreakTheCutie* BreakTheCutie: The Game ''really'' goes out of its way to do this to Lucas. If you listed all of the traumatic things that happen to him over the course of the story, you'd more or less have a summary of the plot of the game.



%%* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold

to:

%%* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: A rare Male Variation. May in part be due to how Sensitive he is.



%%* HeroWithBadPublicity
%%* HurtingHero

to:

%%* HeroWithBadPublicity
%%* HurtingHero
* HeroWithBadPublicity: He really makes a name for himself with his friends when they fight the Pigmasks, and [[TruthinTelevision doing what's right really doesn't make him popular with the residents of his home town.]]
* HurtingHero: '''Big'' understatement.



%%* KidHero

to:

%%* KidHero* KidHero: Following the tradition of Ness and Ninten before him, he's implied to be around 12 by the time he picks up the role of Main Protagonist and fights the Pigmasks.



%%* PrimaryColorChampion

to:

%%* PrimaryColorChampion* PrimaryColorChampion: Following with Ness and Ninten's tradition, he wears a Red and Yellow stripes shirt, as well as Blue Shorts.



* TheQuietOne: Is often described as quiet and [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] in-game.

to:

* TheQuietOne: Is often described as quiet and [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] in-game. And then he gets saddled with the role of SilentProtagonist for the rest of the game save the ending.



* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler:After all of Lucas's [[TotalPartyKill fellow party members]] and [[TakingTheBullet Flint]] are struck down, he is allowed to attack the [[DuelBoss Masked Man]]. [[ControllableHelplessness It doesn't really affect the outcome of the fight however]], though it does produce a couple of [[EasterEgg Easter Eggs]].]]

** Seemingly played straight everytime Lucas comes into contact with [[spoiler: Masked Man, as he gets these weird Light flashes that imply he recognizes the Masked Man and knows who he is.]]



%%* BadassNormal

to:

%%* BadassNormal* BadassNormal: He doesn't need any PSI to take down Chimeras or otherwise, being a trained Thief.



%%* HandicappedBadass

to:

%%* HandicappedBadass* HandicappedBadass: That leg must REALLY have a lot of velocity in order to deal that much damage to enemies. He's even the second strongest Physical Attacker of the party, after Lucas.

* DecoyProtagonist: The second person controlled, and the first who does any serious fighting. The ending narration of chapter two restates that he's going to continue to be a major player on the good guy's side. However, he never takes an active role in the plot again after that. [[spoiler:Though he does help out in the eleventh hour.]]
** Compounded by the advertising campaign for ''Earthbound 64'', where most video and screenshots were taken from the first chapter - leading many to believe, as early as 1999, that ''Mother 3'' would be about Flint the cowboy rather than a young boy as is the series tradition. Of course, those who payed closer attention to the screenshots released could tell that Flint wouldn't be present for the entire game - though [[spoiler: the fact that the ''Earthbound 64'' trailer shows him [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_yieBcg2oM&t=46s clinging to the Pigmask airship at the end of Chapter 5]], as well as the fact that [[https://tcrf.net/Mother_3/Unused_graphics#Unused_Character_Sprites his unused clinging sprite]] still exists in the GBA version, suggests that Flint really was planned to have a more active role in the later parts of the adventure [[WhatCouldHaveBeen during development]].]]

* [[spoiler:AllOfTheOtherReindeer: An interesting case in that the trope literally didn't even ''exist'' in ''MOTHER 3'''s setting... at least not at first. After the TimeSkip however when Tazmily begins to mirror a more present-day world and Lucas [[GoodIsOldFashioned doesn't go along with it]], this trope is in full effect.]]

* InsistsOnPaying: During his stay in the Yado Inn in Tazmily Village, he insists to pay money for the night (even though the townspeople never use or heard the term "money"). Unlike most examples, this is meant to be seen as villainous rather than humble, since he's rejecting their hospitality in favor of making it a cold transaction.
