* TheHunter: As a Ranger, he gets Favored Enemies as a class feature, and if [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0957.html his angry threats towards a vampire]] are to be believed, his time in Azure City made Undead one of them.

** Worships his hand puppet, Banjo. Due to the way divinity works in the Stickverse, Banjo ''actually is'' a (very weak) god, thanks to the fact that Elan worships him.
** Elan has also persuaded a tribe of orcs to worship Giggles, a second hand puppet who is Banjo's brother and rival (this presumably empowers Banjo as well), and indicated the possible existence of Banjuhlu (Banjo with an illusion on him giving him face tentacles).

** Worships Elan is currently the sole worshiper of his hand puppet, Banjo.handpuppet, Banjo, Clown God of Puppetry. Due to the way divinity works in the Stickverse, Banjo ''actually is'' a (very weak) god, thanks to the fact that Elan worships him.
** Back when he, Durkan and a pair of paladins were stranded on an island of orcs, they've taken to worshipping Banjo, but in doing so, stole him from Elan. After getting him and the paladin back, Elan has also persuaded a cheers up the tribe of orcs by introducing them to worship another handpuppet: Giggles, a second hand puppet the Clown God of Slapstick, who is also Banjo's brother and rival (this presumably rival. Due to their rivalry, the orc's worship of Giggles also empowers Banjo as well), and (and by extension Elan).

* DumpStat: Intelligence and Wisdom (they're getting better, though).

* DumpStat: Intelligence and Wisdom (they're getting better, though).(he is improving and he has shown moments of GenreSavvy mixed with SimpleMindedWisdom).



* ManChild: It's a running gag from Elan to display behavior fitting more with a not-so-bright kid than an adult. Notably, Roy has to baby-sit Elan, fixing at what time he could go to sleep for example. When [[spoiler:reunited with his father, Tarquin, he spends a full day enjoying the Empire of Blood equivalent to kiddy rides]].

Added DiffLines:

* RulesLawyer: Being LawfulGood, his first reflex is to try to work within any system he finds himself in. He's gotten fairly good at abusing technicalities for the greater good.

* MusclesAreMeaningless: He can block a half-orc and a woman twice her size at the same time because character class matters more than physical strength.

-->'''Belkar:''' Wow, it's almost like I am a seasoned warrior and you two are glorified pickpockets! Imagine that!

%% * NominalHeroNominalHero: Roy keeps him around because it's better to have him pointed at people worse than him and the other option is slitting his throat.

* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: The way V's been using magic since the beginning: load up with as much power as possible, then smash. Trying to break the habit in the latest arc, with difficulties. [[spoiler:It could be said to have succeeded, if [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0800.html "Right Tool for the Job"]] is anything to go by. Instead of blasting the enemy, buff your allies]].

* JokeItem: The Bag of Tricks. It's a bag that fires small animals. \
** LethalJokeItem: Roy eventually figures out how to use the Bag of Tricks in combat by using the animals as a distraction, and he eventually finds out that there is a ''rhino'' in there. Unfortunately, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard the rhino kinda backfires on him]].
-->'''Roy:''' You know, this bag of tricks isn't so bad once you get the hang of it.

* HonorBeforeReason: During his fight with Xykon over Azure City. Xykon notes that as strong as Roy's gotten, the lich himself is still a league or two above him, and Roy doesn't currently stand much of a chance in one-on-one combat, and as a corollary to this, offers to let Roy go and essentially grind XP for a while. Naturally, Roy objects. {{Downplayed|Trope}} a bit in that Xykon is ChaoticEvil and there's no guarantee that he wouldn't have roasted Roy as soon as his back was turned, and in that Roy still has a few good reasons for saying no.

Naturally, Roy objects. {{Downplayed|Trope}} a bit in Subverted as Roy explains the perfectly reasonable motivations behind not letting the homicidal lich control the world and that as far as Roy knows he is still the one with the best chance of stopping Xykon is ChaoticEvil and there's no guarantee from destroying Azure city.

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: His degrees in Fighter College are certainly paying for themselves. Despite not ''technically'' knowing any magic, Belkar once pointed out that he is as strong as a giant and once survived being impaled on the horn of a triceratops ''and'' on his own sword in the space of less than a minute with few ill effects. He then goes on to grab a rope with a load that two people were struggling to hold up and casually holds it in place with one hand and no visual effort.
