* EvenEvilHasStandards: Harvey is quite angry to learn that the district attorney [[spoiler: suppressed evidence and put an innocent man in jail]]. He also frequently makes it clear that there are lines he'd never cross and expects Mike not to cross them either. He's quite offended when Louis accuses him of trying to take all the credit for a win they received together:

* PapaWolf: Harvey seems to have turned into one, despite his protestations to the contrary. In season two premiere he becomes fiercely protective of Mike, to the point where [[spoiler: he throws his PlausibleDeniability out the window to save Mike's job]]. This coming from the man who, twelve episodes earlier, had said: "I have to put my own interests above yours. It's nothing personal."
** Over time, it becomes more and more of a ParentalSubstitute as the two get closer. It doesn't help that Harvey has a FreudianExcuse and Mike has no one else in his life.

* {{Foil}}: To Louis. They share much of the same traits and behaviors with the major difference being that if Harvey 'plays the man', Louis 'plays the law'. It is Louis' strict adherence to the letter of the law (especially when it benefits him) that most people tend to dislike him for whereas Harvey's approach at least makes him seem somewhat charming.



* HonorBeforeReason: Harvey refuses to testify against an old boss of his even though it could get him disbarred. He knows that the man is guilty but he still refuses.

* BreakHisHeartToSaveHim: Louis [[spoiler: tells Rachel that she wasn't accepted to Harvard because of his supposed rift with Sheila, instead of the truth: that she was good, but wasn't good enough for Harvard It doesn't work.]]



* DespairEventHorizon: Louis [[spoiler: very nearly crosses it when he realizes he's become so repellent to Harvey that he is immediately the first suspect when skullduggery is suspected.]]



* EveryManHasHisPrice: Louis' go-to bribe consists of high-end, hard-to-get tickets to concerts, plays, etc. However, if you really want to get Louis on your side, you bribe him with respect. When Daniel Hardman gives him a digital voice recorder it is more than just a fancy gadget but a sign that Hardman knows about Louis's work and appears to respect him as a member of the firm.



* {{Flanderization}}: While he starts as an unsympathetic yet very competent Bad Boss-type with a few quirks (his soft spot for cats and a couple of unusual hobbies), by season three these quirks started overriding his professionalism, making him go to a mock trial for custody over a cat with an opposing (and equally eccentric) lawyer that isn't even his in the first place, and later totally flunks extremely important negotiations with said lawyer because of that cat. The other guy told him that he didn't read the cat the letters he wrote her.
* {{Foil}}: To Harvey. They share much of the same traits and behaviors with the major difference being that if Harvey 'plays the man', Louis 'plays the law'. It is Louis' strict adherence to the letter of the law (especially when it benefits him) that most people tend to dislike him for whereas Harvey's approach at least makes him seem somewhat charming.



* FriendlyEnemy: Louis realizes too late, almost too late, that he and Harvey are actually this and not true enemies. Harvey may not have liked him but respected him a great deal but his siding with Hardman ended it. Only when Louis helps Harvey save a client not just from a bad deal but keep him to the firm does Harvey forgive him.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeByAnalysis: Her HyperAwareness, SherlockScan abilities, and eidetic memory on the details she picks up equals this. Then there's her general professional skills which are just as good.
