* DoingResearch: This is one of Artie's responsibilities. He's the one who dives into the books - sometimes ''piles'' of them - in order to dig out and correlate any relevant bits of data. He's also usually the one who gets in touch with the "research department" and other sources of information back in Washington, D. C.
* DreadfulMusician: Though Artie claims to be able to play any musical instrument and backs up his claim rather well, in the past he was apparently not quite so skilled. He tells Jim in "The Night of the Colonel's Ghost" that he once played the organ on a showboat and was so bad that he had to give it up after the patrons threatened to kill him.

* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Dr. Loveless feels this way about West. In "The Night of the Surreal [=McCoy=]," when a rebellious minion tries to just come right out and shoot West, Loveless attacks him with a blowgun.

Added DiffLines:

* KingpinInHisGym: Loveless is sparring with his minions when West first meets him. As a dwarf he's not a physical match, but he seems to specialize in a martial art involving his walking stick and makes short work of them. This seems to be nothing but a bit of entertaining exercise, since he never even attempts direct combat any other time.

* ConMenHateGuns: Artie has shades of this in his stance that using violence is "cheating." However, he still carries a gun and is more than willing to use it when necessary.

* TeamChef: Though he claims in one episode that he "can't cook," this is belied by his ability to prepare everything from simple but delicious camp food to much more elaborate multi-course meals. He's also a professional-level pastry chef.

* ShadowArchetype: Why a genius like Loveless is so obsessed with a lowly paid Secret Service Agent like West, to the point of including him in all his schemes? It's a case of NotSoDifferent: Both of them are intelligent (but Loveless is at a genius level), both of them are handsome, and both of them have a lot of success with the GirlOfTheWeek. Then you realize that West is almost always ''the shortest guy'' in the tv show (not counting Loveless) and yet he is ''perfectly happy and wants to help others''. Loveless will never accept that TakeOverTheWorld would result for him in AndThenWhat situation… he still would be the same bitter man. Trying to destroy West, the man who reminds Loveless that [[ShadowArchetype being shorter than anyone else is not obstacle to happiness]], is his true dream.
