Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllMyFault / NeverMyFault: Flip-flops between the two, usually depending on whether the incident is being played for comedy or drama. For minor screw-ups and/or nobody got hurt, he'll often try to pass the blame to someone else (usually Zelenka). For major mistakes and/or somebody was hurt or killed, he'll blame himself entirely, even if others were involved in the decision.

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: He will invariably screw Atlantis over the moment that the tide might turn in his favour. Pointed out by Sheppard when he explains that dealing with Todd feels like walking around with a live grenade in your pocket.



* HonorBeforeReason: most of the time, he'll go to any lengths to keep his bargains, even against his own better judgement.
* LovableTraitor: while he's inevitably going to turn on the Atlantis expedition at one point or another, his AffablyEvil tendencies, [[DeadpanSnarker sense of humour]] and NobleDemon leanings make him one of the most likeable characters in the cast.

* HeelFaceBrainwash: He was the guinea pig for the Atlantis expedition's gene therapy treatments, testing whether or not they could transform a Wraith into a full-fledged human. As part of the experiment, they also gave him a fictitious backstory as a team member who received amnesia from an injury. Michael is ''not'' happy when he discovers the truth.

* MarriedToTheJob: Her relationship with Simon ended due to her going to Atlantis and she's refuses any other possibilities of a relationship due to her responsibilities as leader. When all the expedition have to leave the city in Season 3, she pretty much shuts down and cuts herself off from her friends for weeks.

* UndyingLoyalty: To Atlantis and it's inhabitants. An alternate Elizabeth sacrificed her life to preserve the city and make it safe for the future expedition and she eventually [[spoiler: sacrifices herself to the replicators so the team can get away and save the city.]] On a more personal level to John, as seen when she absolutely ''refuses'' to let his superiors replace him and pulls out all her connections to keep him as a her second in command.

Added DiffLines:

* InformedAbility: He brags about his legal skills in the quote above, but he argues like an amateur trial lawyer, though he was able to convince the more reasonable judge.

* ArchEnemy: To Koyla of the Genii.

to:

* ArchEnemy: To Koyla Kolya of the Genii.



* BadassInDistress: All the characters fall into plenty of trouble during the show but Sheppard seems to be the go-to guy for getting injured, tortured or held hostage, especially when Koyla's involved.
* BerserkButton: Threaten anyone on his team at your own risk. Harming Elizabeth is probably his biggest trigger, as she doesn't go out in the field much so he's extremely over-protective. When Koyla claims to have shot her Sheppard retaliates by killing ''over fifty Genii soldiers''. Yeah. Do. Not. Hurt. Elizabeth
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Most of the time Sheppard is all goofiness and wise-cracks but he has a dark side that can veer almost into sociopath territory. His killing spree mentioned above is brutal enough to horrify even Koyla.

* HalfHumanHybrid: Well half ancient, half vampire bug. Millennia ago, the bugs they evolved from fed so heavily from the ancients that their DNA started to be incorporated into the eggs stem cells, creating the Hybrids that became the Wraith.

* HalfHumanHybrid: Well half ancient, half vampire bug. Millennia ago, The Wraith are already the bugs they evolved from fed so heavily from result of Iratus Bugs feeding on humans. After Michael has been treated with the ancients Atlantis-designed retrovirus that their DNA started makes him temporarily human two times and organizing his own experiments on hybridization, he ultimately becomes some sort of hybrid in between Wraith and humans (three-quarter human hybrid?). Notably, he doesn't need to be incorporated into the eggs stem cells, creating the Hybrids that became the Wraith.feed anymore.
