* TheAntiNihilist: If you convince him not to reminisce via the Echo Shard, [[spoiler:he states that he faces the prospect of outliving his purpose, and he will need to find a new one. He considers either co-writing Liara's book[[note]]provided that you quickly resolve the quarrel between them after the Thessia mission[[/note]], or live as a king among the ''Hanar'']].

* TragicKeepsake: The Echo Shard, the small black monolith he keeps in his room. He explains how it contains the memories of the Protheans before him who all passed it one to the next, making it vaguely similar to the greybox which Kasumi holds. [[spoiler: It's relinquished to Shepard in London if Javik embraced its memories earlier]].

* FantasticRacism: He has an even stronger anti-AI prejudice than Tali; he's quite pleased if you [[spoiler:decide to let the quarians kill the geth]]. He doesn't seem put off by Shepard technically being a cyborg, though probably because they were organic to begin with and though they have synthetic implants, they still possess an organic mind.

* EverythingsBetterWithSamurai: His armor needed to have an "ancient" feel while still being high-tech. Pit him against Phantoms or Kai Leng and you have an [[CoolVersusAwesome alien samurai/cyborg ninja]] deathmatch.

* OddFriendship: With a Paragon Shepard, due to having ''radically'' different approaches to how they should defeat the Reapers. Most of their dialogue shows that Javik is completely perplexed at his/her way of thinking. One reason for their friendship could be that, while everyone else judges Javik as The Last Prothean, the Enkindler, the Creator, Shepard is the ''only one'' who simply accepts Javik for who he is as a person, warts and all.

* DoesntTrustThoseGuys: Synthetics in general; partially by virtue that, unlike organics, AI's are aware of their creators, flaws and all; and partially because he was born when his race was already at war with the Reapers. Both EDI and Legion are targets of Javik's ideals on the matter.

** It's not just the Protheans' impotence that she resents, mind you. It came as a nasty surprise for her to spend most of her life thinking that they were sage, kindly BenevolentPrecursors and then be confronted with, well... [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Javik]]. An exchange on the topic of the Ardat-Yakshi is particularly telling about how disillusioned she's become. In Javik's defense, he points out that was one of the Prothean's ''warriors'' as opposed to one of their scientists or scholars and, in his own words, is "skilled in only one thing; killing" - but even with that in mind, Javik's stories seem to imply that Protheans as a whole still weren't anywhere near the enlightened and peaceful society Liara thought they were.
