* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:Other than the ninth man, he's the first to fall victim to the Nonary Game. His death is what causes the others to suspect that Zero might be amongst them. Ultimately subverted, though, in that he's not actually dead; the corpse was someone else.]]
* SelfDestructiveCharge: [[spoiler:In the Safe Ending.]]
* TheSmartGuy: He's quite intelligent and unleashes withering disdain whenever others can't keep up with his logic. [[spoiler: On top of that, he has more information from Zero than the others and is re-playing the first Nonary Game.]]
* SmugSnake: Between his snarky InsufferableGenius tendencies and swaggering confidence, it's possible to read him this way, appropriately enough, [[spoiler:at the most up until the Safe Ending. His name is Snake and he's smug, but in terms of the trope, it's ultimately subverted; he's a pretty good guy and can back his talk in even more than where his intellect's concerned.]]

* AgentScully: He is a staunch (although this can vary slightly with dialogue choices) skeptic, with a habit of putting down [[AgentMulder June]]'s occult musings.
