* DeathByPragmatism: [[spoiler:Once the creepy dead Engineers show up, he decides it's time to get the hell out of there and Millburn decides to go with him. But they get lost on their way back and become the first victims. Despite Fifield deciding to head in the [[GenreSavvy opposite direction]] of the unknown life-sign being picked up.]]

* FauxAffablyEvil: [[spoiler:In ''Alien: Covenant'', David's demeanor has changed very little. He's as polite and soft-spoken as ever, but as the film goes on, it's increasingly shown to cover an absolute disdain for the human race, as well as a raging god complex. His gentle tone as he leads Oram to his gruesome death and parting words of "don't let the bed bugs bite" as he seals a horrified Daniels into cyrosleep emphasise the depths of cruelty that exist behind his affable mask.]]

* AmbiguouslyEvil: Throughout ''Prometheus'', David comes across as slightly sinister and resentful of his human shipmates, even [[spoiler:poisoning Holloway to observe the effects of the Engineers biotechnology]], but his motives are vague, and he still [[spoiler:tries to help Shaw at the climax]]. Come ''Alien: Covenant'', however, the ambiguity disappears. [[spoiler:He's the film's BigBad, the GreaterScopeVillain of the franchise, and a genocidal RoboticPsychopath with a massive god complex.]]

* StrawNihilist: He ultimately comes to the conclusion that existence itself is meaningless, deriding all of human civilization as nothing more than a caveman getting an idea one day. [[spoiler:It's only one more step from there for him to become an OmnicidalManiac.]]
