* JerkassFacade[=/=]JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She only acts like a bitch to everyone to maintain her popularity, but we see that she does have some kind moments. Unfortunately, she hides it ''really well''. The only one she treats with any kindness are her step-brother and her boyfriend.

* BlackBestFriend: On both ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow''

* BlackBestFriend: On both ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow''''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow''.



* CharacterDevelopment Cleveland gets more depth in this series than he ever did on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. On ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', he was just the sane, yet boring black best friend of Peter Griffin who owned a deli and was married to a black woman who cheated on him with Quagmire and left him. He still is this way on the occasions that Peter, Quagmire, and Joe appear on the show, but, outside of that, Cleveland is shown to be like Peter Griffin back in the early days of ''Family Guy'': a drunken jerk, who eventually does right and sees the error of his ways.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Looking back at his roles in episodes of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' after watching episodes of ''The Cleveland Show'' is jarring, as ''Family Guy'' Cleveland Brown was Peter's [[OnlySaneMan only sane friend]] and the only interesting things about him was that he owned his own delicatessen (which shut down when Superstore USA opened), he has a hyperactive son who used to be thin, and his wife, Loretta, cheated on him with Quagmire. ''The Cleveland Show'' Cleveland has a little more depth and backstory (even if some of it does contradict what was already established on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', like how Cleveland was in high school in the 1980s, yet one episode of ''Family Guy'' had Cleveland over 18 when he met Peter in the 1970s). On top of that, Cleveland on ''The Cleveland Show'' lacks the original's mellow and slow talking mannerisms and is more aggressive and chauvinistic.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Thinks Junior shouldn't want to stay a virgin in "Cleveland Junior's Cherry Bomb"



* AdaptationPersonalityChange: More like a compete rewrite of the character as Cleveland is considerably far more abrasive, self-centered, irresponsible, and idiotic than when he was on Family Guy. Special notice goes to the episode "Sex and The Biddy" where Cleveland, despite never acting in such a way before; was depicted as being a gluttonous slob who ate chicken bone sandwiches, always drank a milkshake before bed, guzzled entire bowls of condiments, and couldn't walk on a treadmill for more than a minute without passing out.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Thinks Junior shouldn't want to stay a virgin in "Cleveland Junior's Cherry Bomb"



** DependingOnTheWriter: And whenever he guest stars in ''Family Guy'' episodes, he reverts to being the OnlySaneMan again.

* {{Jerkass}}
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Has his moments of this.

to:

* MsFanservice: Portrayed as a sexy teenager, she often wears skimpy clothes. Two good example are the episodes "Fat And Wet" & "To Live And Die In VA" which have Roberta in a bikini in the former and dressed as Slave Leia in the latter.

* MistakenForPedophile: Cleveland is often mistaken as this because of his close relationship with his son Junior. Not helped that his kid loves to kiss him in public and says suggestive things about him.



* DreadfulMusician: She plays the recorder, but can only play ''very'' basic tunes, like "Pop Goes the Weasel" and "When the Saints Go Marching In."

* Expy: She's pretty much the black version of Lois Griffin."
