Added DiffLines:

* FormerlyFit: He's fairly portly in most of his post-TOS appearances. Of course, since it's a live-action show it's a case of RealLifeWritesThePlot.

Added DiffLines:

* CoolOldLady: By the time we first see her, the ''Enterprise'' has been going around the galaxy for at least ten years, first with Captain April, then with Pike. By the time she's destroyed, she's a good twenty-five years old. Compare that to ''Enterprise''-D, who only lasts slightly over seven years.

Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: As Kirk himself notes during the episode, the Gorn Captain easily takes attacks from Kirk that would kill a human being. Even Kirk dropping a boulder on him only knocked him out for no more than a minute, and didn't injure him at all.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperStrength: Kirk manages to pick up a large rock (maybe 60-80 pounds) and throw it at the Gorn Captain, hitting him square in the chest and accomplishing nothing. In response, the Gorn Captain ''easily'' picks up and lifts over his head a boulder that has to weigh at least a ton, and throws it (judging by the arc and how much time Kirk had to see it coming and dodge) probably fifty feet.

* PhotographicMemory: Implied to be one of his genetically engineered gifts, and stated explicitly in the novelization of ''Wrath of Khan'' and the expanded universe's "Khan trilogy". He tells Chekhov he never forgets a face, and even after 15 years he still seems to have the Enterprise's technical specifications committed to memory, given that he still has perfect knowledge of the ship's weak points.

* HeroKiller: He was directly responsible for Spock's death in the third movie. Hard to fit the Trope more plainly when you've done ''that''.

* NotSoStoic: With a side order of OOCIsSeriousBusiness. In ''[[Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock Star Trek III]]'', he's visibly angry when he confronts Kirk about the latter's supposed failure to return Spock's ''katra'' to Vulcan. This only escalates when he figures out Kirk has no idea what the hell he's talking about. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] later at the foot of Mt Seleya, when Sarek requests the ''Fal-To-Pan'' ritual be performed to reunite Spock's body and mind. T'Pol protests that the ceremony is dangerous and its outcome uncertain, making his request illogical. Sarek replies "''Forgive me, my logic is... uncertain where my son is concerned.''"
