* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Whenever he was left in command of the ''[[CompanionCube Enterprise]]''. There's "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me," and of course the time that he receives a suspicious audio message from "Kirk" and the first thing he does is run it through a voice analyzer which proves it wasn't really Kirk. Do not mess with Scotty.
** "Aye, sir. [[SpySpeak Queen to Queen's level 3.]]"
** The novel ''Kobayashi Maru'' reveals that Scotty's solution to the ''Kobayashi Maru'' was to re-program the simulation to allow him to use a strategy that would never work in reality, which his instructors would immediately realize. After taking note of his ingenuity, they'd proceed to "punish" him by switching him from the command track to engineering...[[AllAccordingToPlan just as Scotty intended]].

Despite the stark contrast in their personalities, Spock and Jim were very good friends (so much so that they inspired SlashFic in [[OlderThanTheyThink 60's and 70's fanzines]]). The character became so iconic that Nimoy put out an autobiography titled ''IAmNotSpock'', although he later embraced the fanbase, writing another autobiography titled ''I Am Spock''. [[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS5E7Unification1 He reprised the character in]] ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' and the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' movie [[spoiler:and its sequel ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness]].

* DramaticallyMissingThePoint: A fan of ''Literature/MobyDick'', Khan sees himself as Captain Ahab and Kirk as his White Whale. Khan seemed to have forgotten how Ahab's quest for vengeance ended. Not with self destruction; [[TakingYouWithMe he understands and accepts that]], but with the fact that Ahab *didn't even get a chance to make sure* he succeeded.

Added DiffLines:

* UngratefulBastard: Khan resents Kirk leaving him and his people on Ceti Alpha V, even though that was more lenient than taking him back to Earth, where he would have been prosecuted as a war criminal.

* TheMenFirst: Being AFatherToHisMen, Kirk is always insistent on keeping them safe if possible. On a number of occasions[[note]]"The Squire of Gothos", "The Immunity Syndrome", "The Empath"[[/note]], he has wanted to pull a HeroicSacrifice (or even tried to do so) to ensure the well-being of his crew, and torturing ''them'' is generally a better strategy than torturing ''him''.



* PapaWolf: Hurting his people causes him much {{Angst}}. And more anger. He's no slouch around real children, either.

to:

* PapaWolf: Kirk is AFatherToHisMen who makes a habit of punching out any entity, super-powered or not, that messes with anyone in front of him. Hurting his people (or actual children) causes him much {{Angst}}. And {{Angst}} and more anger. He's no slouch around real children, either.Do the math on whether messing with anyone under him is a good idea.



* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Far more often than he gets credit for these days.

to:

* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: Far more often than he gets credit for these days. Kirk is good at talking monsters to death (AKA fast talking his way out of a jam). Since he routinely runs into SufficientlyAdvancedAliens who cannot be defeated with firepower, it's an important skill.

* TheDreaded: Even a century after his death, Starfleet is still fucking terrified of him. It's outright said that the main reason the Federation still has a NoTranshumanismAllowed policy in the [=DS9=] era is because they're scared of a new Khan rising from the ashes.

It's outright said that the main reason the Federation still has a NoTranshumanismAllowed policy in the [=DS9=] era is because they're scared of a new Khan rising from the ashes. His reputation even extends into a new timeline: When young Spock asks for information about Khan, Spock breaks his own oath not to tell him about the future to warn him about how dangerous Khan is, outright saying that he's the most dangerous enemy the Enterprise ever faced.

* TragicVillain: An ambiguous example. While there's little to be sympathetic about Khan due to his lust for power, the main motives for his desire to get revenge on Kirk isn't any less tragic. The deaths of many of his loved ones, including his wife, was beyond his control. You can't help but feel just a little sorrow for all of Khan's losses.
