* JackOfAllStats: Mentally. V outshines him in Intelligence, Durkon outshines him in Wisdom, Haley outshines him in streetsmarts, and even Elan has him beat in Charisma. But his collective Int and Wis are repeatedly shown to be the best in the group and after some character development he learns to see through plenty of guile. He's outright stated to have the stats required to pursue a career as either a Wizard or Cleric. Really, it's not clear whether Roy even ''has'' a DumpStat. He's demonstrably above-average or better in everything but Dexterity, and even that stat shows no signs of being especially low. [[JustifiedTrope This is perfectly possible in D&D if you simply roll reasonably high for all your starting stats.]]

* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:Taunting the black dragon about her dead son]]. There's no excuse for that, and it illustrates how close V is from an evil alignment before the fiends show up. [[spoiler:Kubota spent a page explaning to Elan why he was going to become a KarmaHoudini despite surrendering, so V disintegrating him is understandable from an AntiHero perspective. ''Committing familicide'' against every black dragon related to the one that attacked his family is extreme to say the least, but it prevents other family members from trying what this dragon failed - except for the fact the IFCC has promised Tiamat ten good dragon deaths for every black dragon that died. There's also the fact that any ''human'' even remotely related to that dragon was also offed - which includes the entire Draketooth lineage. Oops.]]
