* Foil: To Gus Hedges, also played by Robert Duncan in [[Series/DropTheDeadDonkey a show by Andy Hamilton.]] Both are ButtMonkey suck-ups to a BigBad whose attempts at flattery go unheeded, but Scumspawn is more of a MinionWithAnFInEvil who is liked by the main characters.

** In another episode, Thomas argues that his being in Hell is unfair as his evil acts were predetermined as part of God's plan. After God tells him that God's plan doesn't exist and everything he did was out of his own free will. He then says that [[InsaneTrollLogic it's still God's fault for being stupid enough to give people like him free will.]]

* {{Flanderization}}: To an extent. In the first series, he's more of a malevolent cad, but later episodes present him as a rage-filled psychopath. Weirdly, this happens at the same time as efforts are made to reform him.

* RenaissanceMan: An Olympic fencer, award-winning historian and noted humanitarian. Her father had high standards, apparently.




to:

* WellDoneSonGuy: Implied to be why she's such an overachiever.
