* {{Adorkable}}



* TheCasanova: He's easily the oddest of the aliens, yet he has had the most relationships with gorgeous women who could easily do better than him. His romantic interests have included Vicki Dubcek, Nina, Masha the Venusian (played by Cindy Crawford), a body builder policewoman named Janice, and in the last episode we find out that for the entire show he'd secretly been with [[spoiler: Mrs. Dubcek]].

* ChickMagnet
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: By leaps and bounds, the worst of the four.

to:

* ChickMagnet
ChickMagnet: Initially he's the only one in the family without a LoveInterest but over time Harry is shown to be extremely popular with women [[KavorkaMan for no apparent reason.]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: By leaps and bounds, To the worst of the four.point where it actually hurts him to think too hard.



* TheDitz
* EyesAlwaysShut

to:

* TheDitz
TheDitz: All four the aliens tend to act like idiots, but he's always the most stupid and clueless of them all.
* EyesAlwaysShutEyesAlwaysShut: French Stewart, the actor who plays him, is naturally "squinty" and rarely has his eyes open more than slightly. This is particularly pronounced when he smiles, and he plays it up for comic effect.



* KavorkaMan: If he opens his eyes fully, he suddenly becomes a chick magnet.

to:

* KavorkaMan: If He's easily the oddest of the aliens, but if he opens his eyes fully, he suddenly becomes a chick magnet.

* WackyGuy

to:

* WackyGuy
WackyGuy: By leaps and bounds, the wackiest of the four.



* ButtMonkey
* CompulsorySchoolAge

to:

* ButtMonkey
ButtMonkey: He often finds himself in embarrassing situations at school etc.
* CompulsorySchoolAgeCompulsorySchoolAge: Tommy is ReallySevenHundredYearsOld, but he got the teenage body, so he has to go to HighSchool. In fact, he was specifically put into a teenage body ''to'' go to High School. (He was awfully ticked about that, though.) In fact, in an early (perhaps the first) episode, he explicitly states that he's older than Dick and wonders why ''he'' has to be the adolescent.



* OlderThanHeLooks

* SassySecretary

to:

* SassyBlackWoman
SassyBlackWoman: Combine this with SassySecretary, and Nina is the result.
* SassySecretarySassySecretary: Very prone to sassy remarks towards Dick, often with good reasons.



* {{Acrofatic}}



* KavorkaMan
* LargeHam

to:

* KavorkaMan
KavorkaMan: With Sally it's understandable, as she's an alien with no knowledge of local standards of beauty (she's actually just attracted to the fact that he's a cop). However, it's played straight as Don has several good-looking ex-girlfriends as well as quite a few karaoke fangirls.
* LargeHamLargeHam: This show borders on WorldOfHam.



* OnlySaneMan

to:

* OnlySaneManOnlySaneMan: Don often plays the part, especially in conversations with Sally where she takes up some ludicrous position about their relationship. He doesn't tell her she's wrong when it plays to his advantage.



* AnythingThatMoves

to:

* AnythingThatMovesAnythingThatMoves: She is prone to having many sexual partners.



* LovableSexManiac
* MrsRobinson
* NoodleIncident: Her love life.

* DeadpanSnarker: When she's not the ComicallySerious. Half of Judith's characterization is that she almost never smiles.

Security Officer and Dick's "sister", she comes to realize that by Earth standards, she's gorgeous, and learns to use her looks to get what she wants and use men as she pleases. However, she's still Security Officer and is easily the most {{Badass}} member of the family when required.
