* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: Hershel wouldn't harm a fly if it came down to it, but there are a couple small moments early on before his CharacterDevelopment that point this way.

* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: He initially only refers to Glenn as the "Asian boy", although he never treats him poorly. He later tells Glenn the country was built on immigrants, however. In the same conversation this is averted, as he gives Glenn his father's watch after realizing that Glenn and Maggie are attracted to one another, saying, "No man's good enough for your little girl until one is."

* WhatTheHellHero: Was prone to giving these to Rick and his group during their early days on his farm, until he mellowed out. However, during the third season, at the end of his patience with Rick, he yells at him to get his shit together and do something about the threat of Woodbury, raising his voice for the first time in a season. Even Merle looked surprised at his outburst.

* CompositeCharacter: Despite being a CanonForeigner, she absorbs traits from comic characters. Like Lacey Greene, she also is distraught during the events at the barn and rushes over in tears, though Beth is saved from being killed. She contemplates around the same point in time as comic Tyreese's daughter Julie, though she survives this one too. Due to the injuries she receives from the Grady Memorial Hospital group, her face is scarred identical to comic Andrea's.
* CoolBigSis: When Carl has PrecociousCrush on her, it's implied that she realized it. But since she's much older than him, the least she can do is act like a big sister to him. Also, after Lori's death, she is the one [[TheLancer Daryl]] asked to keep an eye on Carl since Rick [[SanitySlippage isn't in his best condition]] to be a good father.

* AscendedExtra: She started off as little more than a background character, but slowly got more screentime and eventually became a main character in Season 4.

to:

* AscendedExtra: She started off as little One of the best examples in the entire show. In the first half of Season 2, she has a grand total of ''one'' line, even less than [[RedShirt Redshirts]] Jimmy and Patricia. In the second half, she has a storyline largely revolving around more than important characters reacting to her being in a background catatonic state, eventually recovering and becoming a secondary character, but slowly got more screentime and eventually became a main character in which she remains for all of the next season. In Season 4.4, she is promoted to a series regular under "Also Starring," and becomes more plot-relevant. In the first half of Season 5, she is added to the main credits and gets [[ADayInTheLimelight her very own major story arc]], which culminates in her death.

* HeroicBSOD: He goes into one when Shane proves that the walkers aren't alive and kills all of them in the barn, including Hershel's wife and stepson, and he is forced to face the full reality of the zombie outbreak and the death of his loved ones.



* OverprotectiveDad: Both to his blood relatives and his step-kids.

to:

* OverprotectiveDad: PapaWolf: Both to his blood relatives and his step-kids.



** He also tells Lori to be thankful she doesn't have a daughter, because boys only care about things like learning to shoot, which makes numerous sexist assumptions about both males and females.



* SparedByTheAdaptation: Hershel didn't survive the prison attack in the comics, but in the show he does. The first two, at least.

to:

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Hershel didn't survive ShotgunsAreJustBetter: He wields a pump action shotgun on occasion, most notably one with [[BottomlessMagazines unlimited ammo]] in "Beside the prison attack in the comics, but in the show he does. The first two, at least.Dying Fire."



* TeamDad: Takes the role over from Dale after he dies. It helps that he's actually the dad to two members of the group. By Season 3, he advises on how to care for Judith, advises the rest of the groups on relationships, is Rick's main source of advice, and is the one who tries hardest to help Rick with his loosening grip on sanity. He ends up being the TeamDad to the entire prison community in the fourth season, and his death at the hands of the Governor immediately launches everyone into action.

Added DiffLines:

* HesNotMyBoyfriend: A weird variation on this trope occurs when Beth decides to take her own life and Maggie, attempting to talk her out of it, cites Jimmy as a reason she has to keep living. While Beth doesn't actually deny that they're a couple, she points out that they were only casually dating for a couple of months prior to the ZombieApocalypse, and that despite the apparent opinions of the rest of the group they're not actually in any sort of committed relationship now.
