Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: Unlike other characters on the show, his actions aren't played for laugh and the episode he appears in is one of, if not the darkest moment in the series. The lone episode he appears in begins lighthearted, but ends with Lou walking out on a heartbroken Will again and Will promising to make it without his father while breaking down crying. A sad and sympathetic Uncle Phil gives Will a CoolDownHug. The studio audience is completely silent during this final scene.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: If he starts laughing after a really bad prank or screwup of Will's, that's usually a good sign to run for your life.

* AcademicAthlete: At least in season 1. He is his prep school's star basketball player (and a bit of a general goof off), but is also stated to be an avid student. He once mentioned how, while growing up in west Philadelphia, a friend had to stop bullies from attacking him for carrying around his textbooks. Played with from season 2 onwards, where he's portrayed as a slacker who is not interested in his academic studies but is still BrilliantButLazy and manages to score higher than Carlton on a standardized test.

* ClosetGeek: He definitely has his nerdy side. If he applies himself even a ''little'' he will achieve grades that rival Carlton in school, and don't even get him started on BeastWars.

* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Phil didn't think much of his life in Yamacraw, though Will ends up being impressed by some of the stories, such as becoming the first black president of the Young Farmers club and using a white's only restroom when he really had to go. Phil thinks those are trivial items because he wasn't trying to prove some grand point with either of them, but Will says they're things he should be proud of.



* IgnoredExpert: When Ashley secretly transferred out of Bel-Air Prep and enrolled in public school, Phil was outraged when he found out. He intended to make her transfer back and didn't care at all about the merits of the public school. Vivian takes issue with this--saying he didn't bother to consult her despite her history in education.



* SternTeacher: During her tenure teaching black history at Bel-Air Prep, she made Will and Carlton miserable with a hefty workload. On the other hand, the other students loved her.



** In the last season, he finally gets accepted to Princeton. However, he starts getting cold feet when he sees how much Phil accomplished during his time there.

* CoolOldLadyCoolOldLady: To the point where Will loves hanging out with her.
