* BerserkButton: He's a very calm, polite, and peaceful man...unless you call the ''Enterprise'' a piece of garbage. Then he'll punch you in the face regardless of the cost.

* FourStarBadass: In the movies. And everyone knows it. Though as a ''Rear'' Admiral, technically he was only a Two-Star Badass.
** [[spoiler:Until he gets demoted at the end of ''Film/{{Star Trek IV|The Voyage Home}}''.]]

* GunboatDiplomacy: One of his favorite diplomatic techniques seems to be threatening to blow up a planet that doesn't do what he wants. Somehow he gets away with this. ''He's Kirk.''
** He only actually uses a threat to blow up a planet as part of diplomatic negotiations once, but on the other hand, his other diplomatic successes include one use of orbital bombardment (with ship phasers set on stun).

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Twice from the same action. His sending the tribbles home with the Captain Koloth apparently resulted in an ecological disaster for the Klingon Empire, which in turned caused the Klingons to hunt down tribble homeworld and obliterate it, rendering them extinct. At least for a century, or so. The [=DS9=] crew undid the second part on accident.

* AscendedExtra: Actor Bruce Hyde was cast as a crewman with a significant part in "The Conscience of the King" without anyone realizing he had also played ''uber''-[[{{Oireland}} Irishman]] Riley in "The Naked Time." When [[HeyItsThatGuy the producers finally realized this]], the script was hastily re-written so that Hyde played the same character in both episodes. (The same thing happened with actress [[http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Barbara_Baldavin Barbara Baldavin]], who appeared three times as Angela Martine but is accidentally addressed by other names more than once due to rewrites; figuring out who she really is almost approaches ContinuitySnarl levels.)

* GunNut: Overlapping with FanOfThePast, in "Shore Leave," he's thrilled to find an ancient revolver. An animated series episode expanded this to Sulu having expertise with weaponry across the board.

Added DiffLines:

* RudeHeroNiceSidekick: {{Inverted|Trope}}, Captain Kirk is a charming OfficerAndAGentleman. By contrast, his first officer, Spock, is more tactless and ruthlessly pragmatic. The fact that he's also TheStoic when he does these things probably doesn't do his image any favors.

* YoungConqueror: Both ExpandedUniverse versions of his OriginStory (the 2001 novels by Greg Cox and the 2014 comic book tying in to ''StarTrekIntoDarkness'') place him as being either in his early or late 20's during the Eugenics Wars. The novels indicate that faster-than-normal maturation is part of his genetic modifications.

* MayflyDecemberFriendship: At two hundred years old, a Vulcan might still have a number of years left. Humans can live a few decades past one hundred, but it's clearly old for them, meaning Spock is doomed to outlive all his human friends.
