* CatchPhrase: The toast "salud!" [[HisQuirkLivesOn (which makes another appearance after he dies)]] and "Good times…" (always said after telling a story that sounds like the opposite of that).

* AffablyEvil: Has shades of this. He swings wildly between this, BigFun, and on the rare ocassion FauxAffablyEvil, usually depending on the writer.
* BenevolentBoss: He tries, anyway. On one occasion, after realizing he got everyone really crappy Christmas presents, he tries it again a bit more personally, but apparently runs out of steam after giving Matthew some tapes of ''Radio/FibberMcGeeAndMolly'' and just buys everyone else brand-new Mazda Miatas; in a DoubleSubversion, it turns out that in addition to the tapes, Matthew got the ''rights'' to the show. He also sometimes appears to actively seek his good-boss reputation, by making Dave make the unpopular decisions for the company.
** In Jimmy's defense of the caps, he genuinely thought they were cool (and even had one made for himself) until he tore the patch off and saw that it said "Jimmy James, Incorporated"- and agreed that would suck if he wasn't Jimmy James.

* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals: To Fred and Mike Johnson, both one-off characters that appeared before Max. Max's habit of [[IHaveManyNames adopting new identities every time he changes jobs]] suggest that these characters may all be one and the same, making Max more of a [[RecurringExtra Recurring]] / AscendedExtra instead.

%%* EvilSoundsDeep

to:

%%* EvilSoundsDeep* EvilSoundsDeep: As befits a character played by Patrick Warburton.
* NobleDemon: When he takes over Jimmy's company (including WNYX), as a small mercy he offers to give him back a single employee from the station. Jimmy surprises everyone by picking Johnny himself (which he could do, since Johnny explicitly made himself head of the station). Instead of vetoing the obvious LoopholeAbuse, Johnny congratulates Jimmy on his quick thinking and gives back his company (much to the surprise of everyone else).

%%* LargeHam* LargeHam: In close competition with bill for the largest ham on the show.

* UnmanlySecret: Joe is very concerned about maintaining his tough guy persona, and therefore does his best to hide his more caring side. When Jimmy James falls into a coma, Joe spends his turn to watch over him pouring his heart out to him, eventually holding his hand and later hugging him; when his co-workers walk in on him doing this, he immediately pretends to be explaining wrestling moves to the (still unconscious) Jimmy.

* TheDanza: Dave Nelson, played by Dave Foley.



* TheDanza: Deliberately averted. Since they already had two characters sharing names with their actors (Dave and Joe), they decided to make Phil Hartman's character named "Bill" instead. Unfortunately the two names are similar enough that the cast still mixed them up on occasion.



* TheDanza: Joe Garelli played by Joe Rogan.
