* OverlyLongName: Known as "Legs" due to this trope, much to her initial chagrin (she thought it was in reference to her gender).

* ContagiousAI: His code is derived from a virus, enabling him to "head-hop" easily. For a sentient AI in this setting it's a nearly unique ability, and was not intended by his creators.

Added DiffLines:

** In the RPG Ennesby's AI type is referred to as a "Jackbot", they take no penalties for switching chassis but also [[MasterOfNone don't get any skill bonuses]].

* CloningBlues: Originally averted. Each and every single one of him has the same legal privileges as anyone else. In addition, the original was killed almost immediately after the cloning happened, so it's not like there's any crisis of identity. While there's now a lack of leggy blondes who dig blue-haired scientists, forming your own galactic demographic is pretty nice. Later it's played straight when it turns out the Gavs ''are'' suffering more than a little angst over being indistinguishable, to the point that some of them are willing to undergo extensive physical and mental modification in order to be unique again. Even before that they had to branch out professionally, simply because there weren't more than a few thousand jobs available in their old field.

The degree of this seems to vary significantly; in a conversation between an altered Gav and a "baseline" Gav the latter doesn't sympathize with the former's angst ''at all'', to the point of suspecting it was added in the alteration process.

* JackOfAllTrades: ...though as Tagon points out, Ennesby is genuinely useful to the Toughs in multiple capacities as a free-roaming AI, the vague rank meaning he can be assigned to different tasks and roles as needed. He often serves as a pilot for boats and artillery/air support. (those having a lot of overlap in the setting)

Added DiffLines:

** Later, an ancient Oafan librarian finds the translation "Broken Wind" inappropriate, but also lacking - The word "Wind" lacks the mysticism it implies to the Oafa, and "Broken" isn't violent enough. He suggests an alternative: "Breath Weapon".

* ImAHumanitarian: While fighting the suborned JSC agents to save the civilians of Dom Atlantis, he ate four people. We can assume that they were bad guys since he didn't get in trouble for it, but it does hurt his image more than a little.




to:

-->'''Mako:''' He was surrounded by suborned JSC officers. He's probably on the ground with fifty holes in him.\\
'''Sorlie:''' Maybe, but he did answer his phone.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: After his heroic actions in Dom Atlantis, he is half fired/half promoted to working on Jumpstar Prime to get him out of the no-gun zone. Part of this is because his girlfriend is a sentient gun, and neither of them are interested in being separated.
-->'''Breya:''' Also, there's the image issues caused by the fact that you ate four people.\\
'''Landon:''' That's fair.
