* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Strongly hinted at, as the various engineering skillsets he demonstrates (including holographic generators, PowerArmor, computers, the machinery that operates the school, and space flight) suggest at least passing familiarity with multiple scientific disciplines. Downplayed in that other teachers at [=PS238=] (Mr. Alloy, most prominently) are the ones responsible for teaching most science courses.




to:

* TripleShifter: Hershel's lack of sleep comes up multiple times in the series, first mentioned as [[BlessedWithSuck a drawback]] to his super-intellect - he's constantly thinking of new things he can do, which distracts him from sleep. He ends up becoming the school's maintenance crew, shop teacher, and still has time to help run his multinational corporation and give assistance to NASA and other governmental agencies as needed.



* ActionSurvivor: Tyler's early appearances mostly focus on him just trying to get through the daily routine of [=PS238=] alive. He grows out of it as he becomes [[BadassNormal more proactive]].



* TheJinx: A very directed and specific one, aimed mainly at Captain Clarinet.

to:

* TheJinx: A very directed and specific one, aimed mainly at Captain Clarinet. Zodon also thinks Tyler is one, [[spoiler: but as Tyler actively meddles with some of Zodon's more villainous schemes, it's more like SpannerInTheWorks.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler: Yeah, Zodon's plans get screwed up whenever Tyler gets involved... although Zodon can't even conceive that it's due to intentional sabotage on Tyler's fault, guided by Tom's advice.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TwoPersonLoveTriangle: PuppyLove version - there are several indications that Julie Finster is attracted to both Tyler and Moon Shadow, not realizing that they're the same person.


Added DiffLines:

* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Extended to the whole family - Alexandra and Victor affirm that they will ''never'' cheat family.


Added DiffLines:

* InsufferableGenius: Not quite on the same level as Zodon on either count, but he's quite capable (he made [[spoiler: Toby's body]], after all) and frequently rude and/or dismissive to other students. He's more disdainful than actively aggressive, but few students bother with him regardless.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's marginally more polite than Zodon, but he's still a villain in training, and he acts with various levels of disdain towards "the plebians" he goes to school with.


Added DiffLines:

* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Despite overhearing [[spoiler: his parents discussing how things would have been better [[HaveYouTriedNotBeingAMonster if he wasn't a meta]]]], he still can't bring himself to do any harm to his mother and father, no matter how betrayed he felt. [[spoiler: Of course, sending them to another dimension where they can have their wish isn't harmful to them...]]


Added DiffLines:

* InsufferableGenius: He's pretty damned good at anything scientific, able to create a hover chair and even figure out how to do TimeTravel. That said, he's a raging narcissist who insults everyone, regardless of what they're capable of or even if [[EnemyMine they're working together at the time]]. It's shown in flashback that [[spoiler: even his parents had a hard time tolerating him.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Extended to the whole family - Alexandra and Victor affirm that they will ''never'' cheat family.


Added DiffLines:

* GenreSavvy: Shows it off less frequently than Tyler, but he's had enough experience with supers that he's able to predict what will happen in many circumstances.
* KirkSummation: As revealed by the Crystal Skull, The Revenant will hand out these to villains to get them to stop crime and [[CutLexLuthorACheck use their powers and skills legally to profit]]. As the Skull mentions, it took in at least his case.

Added DiffLines:

* FunPersonified: He's a winning combination of this and NiceGuy. One of the friendliest, most upbeat and all around fun kids at PS238; it's telling that even Cecil, who doesn't exactly have a great opinion of superhumans, enjoys his company.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGlomp: Very prone to delivering (literally) bone-crushing hugs when happy or excited, much to Tyler's distress.

Added DiffLines:

* InverseLawOfUtilityAndLethality: His main problem. He's a superhero, and his powers are almost exclusively destructive.

** Most of the
students see Tyler merely as the TeamNormal, likeable but not really special in any way. However, they admire Moon Shadow.Shadow very much, especially Emerald Gauntlet and 84.

* MeaningfulName: His first name means 'Blind' in Latin. As for his second name... hm, wonder what someone named ''Holmes'' could be like.
