* {{Fetish}}: Has expressed attraction to numerous things: giraffes, jellyfish, and whatever's at [=ColdTurkeys.com=]. More specifically, he's said he's attracted to long, slender necks, of the sort you can't usually find on humans.

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneUtility: His d20 is made from a piece of the true cross. Apparently, he only uses it "for really important rolls."

* ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption: Gabe's knee-jerk reaction to nearly everything. He once curb stomped Tycho to death because he thought there was only one copy of PuzzleQuest left in the store, and tore out Tycho and Charles's throats with his teeth when he panicked over the proper pronounciation of "Gif".

* BiTheWay: Arguable. His fantasies about SpiderMan and PatrickSwayze tend to point this way. Not to mention his weird on-off HoYay with Apple fanboy Charles.

* RedEyesTakeWarning: His eyes turn red when he gets ''really'' angry. Its implied in an early strip that he may have brought '''something''' back with him from the dream world after having two consecutive nightmares about hell.

* InsufferableGenius: Has traits of this, despite not having any higher education than high school. He is very intelligent, but absolutely insufferable about it.



* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Frequent. In the Penny Arcade card game, there is an attack of his that deals damage based on the number of letters in a given card.

In-universe, he has an enormous affinity for words and grammar, to the point where Gabe letting him babble about Bookworm Adventures is his christmas present.



* ActuallyPrettyFunny: When Tycho makes an IncrediblyLamePun related to sawing KrisStraub in half so they can have an even number of players, Gabe exclaims "Damn son, there's that gallows humor!"



* TheBeastmaster: A pet dragon, unicorn, and several VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} to his name. At one point he also managed to aquire a flock of {{Pikmin}} that proceeded to trash the apartment and kill Tycho. And his roster may grow at any time...

* IThoughtItMeant: In one strip, Gabe asks Jesus for info on the coming Nintendo Revolution (the development name for the Wii), and Jesus thought he was talking about an unspecified future cataclysm that would lead to humanity being forced underground.

The wordy, intellectual, and cynical half of the ''Penny Arcade'' duo, when the characters of Gabe and Tycho first diverged Tycho was something of the StraightMan to Gabe's more wild enthusiasm. However, [[CharacterDevelopment he quickly developed into a character]] [[NotSoAboveItAll as strange if not stranger]]. Tycho is known for his love of literature and wordplay, his overwritten fantasy series Epic Legends of the Hierarchs: The Elemenstor Saga, his *ahem* love of animals, and his deep knowledge of [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow horrors that man was not meant to know]].

* BottomOfTheBarrelJoke: Gabe loves himself some low-hanging fruit when it comes to humor.

to:

* BottomOfTheBarrelJoke: Gabe loves himself some low-hanging fruit when it comes to humor. At one point Tycho had to step in, because Gabe wanted to make a comic about spawn camping which would have a terrorist waiting to murder newborns in a hospital.



* HiddenDepths: Very seriously into Country-Western dancing.

to:

* HiddenDepths: Very seriously into Country-Western dancing, specifically line dancing.



** PsychopathicManchild

to:

** PsychopathicManchild* PsychopathicManchild
* PsychicPowers: Only comes up once, but he used the unreasonably long load times for the late 90's FPS SIN to harness his latent psychic powers.



* IThoughtItMeant: In one strip, Gabe asks Jesus for info on the coming Nintendo Revolution (the development name for the Wii), and Jesus thought he was talking about an unspecified future cataclysm that would lead to humanity being forced underground.



* NiceGuy
* PalsWithJesus

to:

* NiceGuy
NiceGuy: Though he has an unfortunate tendency to Type Kill in shooters, though this has all but gone extinct since the advent of headsets, and also loves to gloat when winning at Mario Kart.
* PalsWithJesusPalsWithJesus: Gabe mostly. He's friendly with Tycho, but its difficult to bond with someone who doesnt think you exist.


Added DiffLines:

* CameBackStrong: He was originally a dorky cipher the authors used to mock Mac gamers, but when Halo was cancelled for the Mac, Chuck attempted to kill himself by jumping out the window. The reconstructive surgery not only made him look cooler, but also changed his personality to the much more suave Charles.

* HumanoidAbomination: Maybe, maybe not. He seems to enjoy cultivating that appearance, and his eyes subtly glow red when he's particularly angry, not to mention his [[ToThePain infamously disturbing speech]] in [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/4/10/ "I Hope You Like Text"]]... This may or may not be caused by demonic possession if an early strip from 1999 is to be believed.
