* BadAss: Kills one of the catfish aliens with his bare hands, rescues Chloe, and gets them both safely back to Destiny.
** In ''Subversion'', Kiva assumes he's military because she doesn't believe a civilian could withstand torture for that long.



* {{Badass}}: The guy rarely has to show it in action because noone dares to fuck with him in the first place. Examples include Simeon and Telford.



* {{Badass}}



* BadAss: When he wanted to [[spoiler:silence Ginn]], he ended up killing three people ([[spoiler:including Ginn]]), wounded four others, escaped the ship, and evaded around a dozen people tracking him for the better part of a day.

* RomanticFalseLead: Is introduced having sex with Scott, and pines for him. He eventually settles down with Chloe, and she's not happy about it. She's also had a bit of ship tease with Eli, of all people. Again, nothing came of it.

* Acrofatic: He's noted to be quite overweight. Still, he holds his own quite well any time something has to be done, even if it involves combat or physical exercise. To wit, he's been shown to be able to keep up with Ronald Greer, he's basically run from one side of Destiny to the other in a matter of minutes, and was originally one of those who held out the longest in both episodes "air" and "time," as well as managed to avoid capture when the Lucian Alliance came to Destiny. Considering he has practically no military training, this is mighty impressive.

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.

* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Comes out of his trauma conga line a more humbled character.

* 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"
