* ARealManIsAKiller: Even though he's very uncomfortable with this lifestyle. Yoko Taro even says unlike Brother Nier who [[spoiler:sold his body for medicine]] Father Nier simply kills and takes since he is a grown up warrior.

* GoodIsNotNice: In a harsh world there's little time to be nice. He falls short of being a DesignatedHero. He does want to help people even though he has his own objective but he will voice his displeasure about it. His crusade against the Shades becomes less to cure her daughter and more about revenge.

* HeroicBSOD: Rather subtly, but after [[spoiler: Emil's sacrifice]] he allows Kainé to kick the hell out of him because he's finally realized just how badly he screwed up and how many of his friends died.

* SticksToTheBack: No matter the size or weight of Nier's equipped weapon, he can easily reach around and attach it to something on his back with an audible clink. Even more absurd in ''Gestalt'', where the only thing he wears across his back is a few straps that hold his shoulderguard in place.

* GoodParents: His world begins and ends with Yonah. It's to the point where he will eat stew that "tastes like death" simply because Yonah made it for him.



* {{Mangst}}: Suffers from this a great deal due to his inability to help Yonah but can be a bit more open about his concerns than others. One of the major difference between him and brother Nier is that his anger about his situation is present in all his line.
