* {{Kawaisa}}: Dave is an in-universe example of [[{{Moe}} cuteness]], much to his frustration and chagrin. He's rarely taken seriously as an authority figure because of his [[NaiveNewcomer inexperience]], [[IncorruptiblePurePureness idealism]] and [[FunSize boyishness]] -- the others largely agree that he looks like a fourteen-year-old in a business suit. A child visiting the station once calls him "the little boy in the blue suit".
** In one episode, Bill calls a 911 dispatcher to pretend that Dave is his "little boy Davey" and had just made a prank call. When Dave calls back, he has to tell them, "I am not a bad little boy!"
** In episode 57, Dave tries to fool Andrea's polygraph test to make her think he's got a criminal record, but the test reveals he's never even thought about shoplifting, and Andrea calls him the cutest thing. He snaps back, "I am '''not''' the cutest thing!" and the polygraph goes off. Jimmy enters as Dave storms out, then Jimmy says to Andrea, "Ain't he the cutest thing?"

* DeadpanSnarker
* HiddenDepths[=/=]NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: His continually growing list of secret talents was a mild RunningGag (though mostly [[CompressedVice contained]] in the episode "Stupid Holiday Charity Talent Show"). He speaks Spanish, can tapdance, was involved in 4H, starred in ''Theater/{{Grease}}'' in high school, sang in an a cappella group in college, and can throw knives [[{{Ventriloquism}} and his voice]].

* AManIsNotAVirgin: He is, until "The Real Deal." When Dave finds this out, he drops his supportive facade and openly laughs at him: "You're twenty-eight!"
** NerdsAreVirgins: {{Subverted|Trope}} in that losing his virginity doesn't make him even slightly less nerdy.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
