* TheDreaded: A fearsome scourge. Pirates are so afraid of him that in the original game they won't leave port, and when he did kidnap Elain from Plunder Island, almost everyone on the island runs away scared. Even out-universe in ''Revenge''.

* VillainHasAPoint: In ''Escape'', Elain sees through his lies in his Charles L. Charles and claims that everyone else will see through them. [=LeChuck=] retorts they "couldn't see through a window" before revealing his real identity. It's hard to argue with him given how easily he beat her in the governor election and nobody believe her when she tried to reveal who he was.

[=LeChuck's=] apppearance has changed with each game. In ''Secret'' he appeared as a ghost; in ''Revenge'' he was a zombie; in ''Curse'' he looked like a demon; in ''Escape'' he could change his appearance between the three at will; and in ''Tales'' he alternates between zombie and demon.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Zig-zagged, while he is portrayed as a rather bad salesman in the earlier games (to the point, that he goes on a vacation, when he finally sells a ship in ''Secret''), in the later games, he seems to be seen as more competent. In ''Tales'' he even works as a lawyer. Plus, somehow he always has enough financials to set up a new business.
