* GenreSavvy: Most visible when he immediately recognizes the WoundedGazelleGambit in Pittsburgh, with the implication being that he used this exact trick in the past. He also points out earlier his luck might run out.



* [[GoodIsNotNice Morally Dubious Is Not Nice]]: See JackBauerInterrogationTechnique below.

* OneManArmy: By the end of the story, he will have killed a lot of people. [[spoiler:In Winter, the GenreSavvy Cannibals (who outnumber him) actually ''run away'' when he starts shooting.]]

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Tries multiple times to stop his involvement with the mission, but nobody ever listens to him. Joel is GenreSavvy enough to know that little girls won't stay alive too long outside the quarantine zone and probably fears seeing another girl killed in front of him, but Tess and Ellie make sure he finishes the job by himself. [[BerserkButton Or]] [[KillEmAll so]] [[AdultFear they]] [[PapaWolf thought]].

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He recognizes that Ellie is not really infected because, as he puts it, if she was, she wouldn't fight so hard to survive.



* HypercompetentSidekick: Not that David is inept, but James is ruthless and efficient, a skilled butcher, and DangerouslyGenreSavvy, taking no chances. Of course, as irony would have it, he dies because he freaks out and loses his cool.

* GenreSavvy: Apparently what's kept him alive long enough to write so many notes.

* {{Badass}}: David might be a cruel, cannibalistic deviant and he doesn't look particularly tough but he's a slippery bastard. He takes out numerous Runners and Clickers, and is the only member of his group to successfully get the drop on Ellie.

* KillItWithFire: Like all Infected, fire works great. Once they're burnt they can no longer throw their spores, and their natural armor is removed so your lower-caliber guns will be fully effective. However, you'll have to use two Molotovs or 2-3 bursts from the flame thrower to put one down for good.

* PromotedToPlayable: Ellie becomes a playable character in the Winter chapter. She's also the only playable character in the DLC.



* WeakButSkilled: Ellie doesn't have the physical strength of Joel nor his stamina, but by making good use of stealth, she can be as much as a OneManArmy as him.

** To a lesser extent, the Beretta Model 70 Joel gives her. It's the only weapon she uses [[spoiler:when AI controlled]] that isn't her switchblade.

* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She acts very mature for a 14 year old, though it's pretty much justified seeing as she's been raised in a post-apocalyptic world.

* PrecociousCrush: He instantly falls for Ellie and tries to boost his age when she asks. She, as shown later at the university, is starved for interaction from other kids and [[BigSisterInstinct instantly befriends him.]]

Added DiffLines:

** During an argument, he also [[spoiler: tells Ellie she has no idea about loss, even though she has obviously lost her parents and it's very likely that they're dead. Zig-zagged in that later on he expresses some sympathy that her friend turned right in front of her.]]
