The titular hero and occasional to-the-camera narrator, Malcolm is the middle child in a large, dysfunctional, lower-middle class family. He also has genius level I.Q. - but rather than making his life easier, it in fact makes it considerably more miserable, thanks to the neurosis he develops and the degrees of separation it instils between him, his family, his peers and society in general. Indeed, most episodes of Malcolm in the Middle revolve around the self-made catastrophes our hero becomes embroiled in. His victories are almost always of the Pyrrhic or bittersweet variety, and more than any other character, he is made to suffer.

** subverted in two episodes where he demonstrates how completely inept he is musically, even failing basic music appreciation, causing friction between him and Dewey as it is the one talent he can't seem to master that Dewey did.

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: In the earlier seasons she's still a hardass, but it's more of her doing whatever it takes to raise the boys (who aren't exactly angels themselves), as her flashbacks to raising Francis show that she was originally trying to be much less controlling and demanding, to no avail. However, as the series went on, she started to become more and more of a {{Jerkass}} for no reason. ''Especially'' when Malcolm started to work with her.

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: He becomes as much of a {{Jerkass}} as the rest of his family as the series goes on, but given how he was always the punching bag of the brothers, it's at least somewhat justified.


Added DiffLines:

* CuteMute: He can be ''really'' cute despite all the horrible things he does. And he hardly talks at all, aside from his first words [[spoiler:(telling Lois to shut up).]]


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: He becomes kind of a jerk in the later seasons, particularly after Kitty leaves.
