Added DiffLines:

* DeathSeeker: In the pilot, he was so desperate to escape Destiny, that he was willing to strand Scott, Eli, Greer, and everyone who was looking for lime to use on the ship's CO2 scrubbers, not to mention doom the crew on Destiny to a slow death of asphyxiation, and had to be shot. As the series progressed, he grew only more and more angry and desperate until the he learned about "the chair" and happily used that device that he '''knew''' is deadly dangerous, twice.

* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: Like Jack O'Neill in the movie, Young is depressed/suicidal and struggling with personal problems. Unlike movie O'Neill, these things actually impact his ability to do his job.
* DescentIntoAddiction: His decision to turn away from alcohol as an increasing crutch lampshaded in 'Trial and Error.' After which he starts to recover.
* DynamicCharacter: Young ends the series much quieter, more cooperative and less overwhelmingly military than he was when he started.



* ExperiencedProtagonist



* TheQuietOne - with a touch of DeadpanSnarker on occasion.



* TraumaCongaLine: Let's see: [[spoiler:his unborn kid is dead, he had to MercyKill someone under his command, and now Telford has been lost]]. You can hardly blame him for hitting the bottle again and again.

* RagnarokProofing: Considering it's held up for several million plus years, it's amazing that it's only now starting to break down.

** First and foremost, his dialing the ninth Chevron in the pilot. He did it because he wanted to know where it went, and by all accounts still doesn't care that it stranded everyone on the other side of the universe.

* BerserkButton: Making fun of his {{Claustrophobia}}, insinuating he has DaddyIssues and insulting [[UndyingLoyalty Colonel Young]].



* BerserkButton: Hates that the crew have come to nickname the Control Interface as "The Applecore"... or "APLCR Unit"

* AscendedFanboy: Eli was a fan of an online game loosely based on the {{vaporware}} ''VideoGame/StargateWorlds'' game (which in-universe was probably based off of ''Wormhole X-Treme!''). Plus, he's an avowed science fiction geek who makes constant references and shows the most genuine glee about being on a spaceship.
** PromotedFanboy: Eli's actor was already a fan of ''Stargate'' before joining the show. The producers call him an actor and technical advisor in one package.

* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:his mother's condition is getting worse, his girlfriend was StuffedIntoTheFridge, one of his best friends / ex-LoveInterest is slowly turning into... something alien and he (as a civilian) has lost plenty of comrades / friends.]] Quite a TraumaCongaLine he has there.

* MsFanservice: Even more so than Chloe. She is normally the first example that fans bring up when accusing this series of falling into the same trap that {{Franchise/StarTrekEnterprise}} fell into; namely the one where the creative staff have decided that DarkerAndEdgier means ''needs more half-naked women.''
