At the end of the movie, the differences between the two start disappearing even more, with a pissed-off Spock going on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge on the guy who codified the trope in ''Trek'', and the two even exchanging signature attack moves in a fist fight where they're both angry, snarling savages.]]

* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Marcus whole-heartedly believes that militarising Starfleet and provoking a war with the Klingons is an absolute necessity.

%%* {{Hypocrite}}* {{Hypocrite}}: Nero's idea of preventing the "genocide" of the Romulan people is to commit genocide against the Vulcans and against the rest of the Federation. He's so far gone that the distinction is utterly lost on him.



* RedRightHand: His right ear is missing it's tip, and there are scars along that side of his head, likely from an animal attacking him during his time in a Klingon prison.

* JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler: Deconstructed. He's completely correct in his belief that a war between the Federation and the Klingon Empire is coming, and that it's too late to defuse it so the Federation needs to prepare. However his [[SmugSnake arrogance]] causes him to think he can rein in the dangerous and uncontrollable Khan, while his desperation to give the Federation a head-start leads to him committing increasingly amoral acts like trying to kill the Enterprise crew to cover up his crimes. So while the {{Jerkass}} has a point, his Jerkassery causes him to both go overboard and botch the job.]]

* SelfServingMemory: [[spoiler:Khan described himself and his followers as being meant to "lead others to peace in a world at war" before being branded as criminals and forced into exile.
