* BrilliantButLazy: As shown by his excellent handling of Very Good Construction, Ron is an extremely competent entrepreneur and manager, and it was only his hatred of government that kept him from doing anything in the Parks Department.

* EasilyForgiven: Especially in earlier seasons, no matter what Tom would do, he would always get off with a slap on the wrist ''at most''. The worst offender would have to be what he does in "Hunting Trip." Unlike his other antics, which are mostly harmless, if hurtful, here, Tom is extremely reckless with loaded firearms: he goes on a hunting trip without a license, accidentally shoots Ron in the back of the head because he didn't bother checking his field of fire, and then, in an attempt distract everyone from the question of who shot Ron, opens fire on someone else and almost kills them. Then he lets Leslie take the fall for him. He gets off with Ron calling him a moron a couple of times when he could have killed someone, and should have gotten a hefty fine at best and jail time at worst.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: In "Jerry's Retirement," Tom spins a sympathetic story about how before he moved to the Parks and Rec. department, he was the Jerry of his old office, which is why he reinvented himself. The only problem is, instead of making him more sympathetic, it only makes his treatment of Jerry, which is by far the cruelest, that much more horrible because he should know how it feels to be on the receiving end.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Or rather: Feminists want Real Men - when handsome, cheerful, politically correct, environmentally aware Chris Traeger tries to hit on Andy's vegetarian Women's Studies professor, she rejects him in favor of gruff, mustachio'd, unapologetically carnivorous Ron.
