* IdenticalStranger: Jamie is starting to bear an increasingly striking resemblance to [[SonicTheHedgehog Dr. Robotnik]]. Others feel he looks more like Doobie Brothers / Steely Dan guitarist [[http://thelivingend.com/vBforum/showthread.php?p=152290 Jeff "Skunk" Baxter]], Swedish painter [[http://www.wholesalechinaoilpainting.com/upload1/file-admin/images/new4/Carl%20Larsson-757438.jpg Carl Larsson]] or, as noted on ThisVeryWiki, Creator/{{Friedrich|Nietzsche}} [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nietzsche187a.jpg Nietzsche]].

** It's worth noting the Build Team were directed to do this by one of the show's producers. That producer is no longer with the show. Make of it what you will.

* DeadpanSnarker: When not being goofy and energetic, he can fall into this pretty well. Especially when Jamie is the target of the snark.
--> '''Adam''': Want to try [[[ItMakesSenseInContext blowing up a trombone]]] again?
--> '''Jamie''': Sure, why not.
--> '''Adam''': [[SarcasmMode ...you know, it's when you get really excited that I get nervous. If you could just calm down a bit...]]

* FakeAmerican: He's Australian, but narrates the show with a flawless American accent. He used his natural accent when narrating the Australian version of the show (''Mythbusters'' was created and is produced by the Australian company Beyond Productions).

* DoesNotLikeGuns: He's said on Twitter that while he admires the engineering of a gun's design and enjoys using them in myths, he's never actually owned one and is okay with that.

%%* BadassBeard
%%* BadassDriver

to:

%%* BadassBeard
BadassBeard: Sports a red goatee.
%%* BadassDriverBadassDriver: He's a great driver, as seen in the various car-related myths they have tested.



%%* ButtMonkey

to:

%%* ButtMonkeyButtMonkey: He sometimes get poked at by Jamie. He and Tory also tend to get hurt when testing myths.



* CharacterDevelopment: Yes, it even applies to people who aren't playing characters. In the show's formative days, Adam was more lively than Jamie, yes, but certainly ''far'' more reserved than you see him in future episodes. Apparently as he grew hair, his personality became more vibrant (he started the show with a very short haircut and no beard).

* DudeNotFunny: An InUniverse example. Adam enjoys a prank as much as the next person, and probably dishes out more than anyone else on the show by far. But when the build team shocked him with a ''real'' electrical current during the "Ark of the Covenant" myth, he did '''NOT''' take it well.
