* {{Expy}}: In ''Among Thieves'' she's one for Lara Croft, in looks and background (English adventure with a roguish personality who wears shorts and is a dark haired brunette). She later develops her own personality in ''Drake's Deception''.


Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: The way Chloe talks about her father's obsession with the Tusk of Ganesh sounds a lot like Nate's obsession with his quest in ''Drake's Deception''. No wonder she twice tried to talk Nate out of it and then bailed before he could send her away like her father did.

* BeYourself: In ''A Thief's End'' she realizes [[spoiler:adventure and treasure hunting and travel will always be a part of Nathan and herself. So she and Drake set up family businesses in archaeology and filming, enriching their marriage and lives, which is in stark contrast to what we read about happening to the older lady in the flashback mansion level. She couldn't reconcile her adventuring lifestyle with her marriage and ended up never speaking to her estranged husband or son again. We are even given glimpses of this at points throughout the game when she talks with Nate on the phone. She knows something's up, but she can't tell what, and it's left ambiguous for a while as to whether their marriage will last when she finds he's lied to her about where he went.]]

* AntiHero: Nate is a career criminal who has no qualms about skirting the law or even blatant robbery, but he goes to near suicidal lengths to save Jeff, and will throw himself into dangerous situations for the greater good, and to keep others from doing the same and getting themselves killed.

* AntiHero: Nate is a career criminal who has no qualms about skirting the law or even law, from committing blatant robbery, but robbery of numerous historical artifacts, to [[OneManArmy killing hundreds of]] armed enemies that compete with him for the treasures. But he goes to near suicidal near-suicidal lengths to save Jeff, Jeff (a recently-acquainted stranger whom he had only known for a few hours), and will throw himself into dangerous situations for the greater good, and to keep others from doing the same and getting themselves killed.killed. And if given the choice between taking the treasure or saving the world from the bad guys, he will (eventually) always choose the latter.



* BadassNormal: Nate comes up against supernatural enemies like Descendants, Guardians and Djinn and comes away without so much as a scratch. Invoked in his appearance in ''VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale'', where Nate goes mano-e-mano against [[VideoGame/GodOfWar a blood-thirsty demigod Spartan]], [[VideoGame/TwistedMetal a murderous clown in a heavily-armed ice cream truck]], [[VideoGame/BioShock and a huge super-strong mutant with psychic powers in a big-ass scuba suit.]]

* DoomMagnet: In his own words, "Everything I touch turns to shit." It's not always played for laughs, either.

* DoomMagnet: In his own words, "Everything I touch turns to shit." It's not always played for laughs, either.
PlayedForLaughs, however.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Nate seems to never lose any sleep over [[OneManArmy slaying countless amounts]] of gangsters, mercenaries, and other armed criminals. However as shown in ''Uncharted 2'', he has enough of a conscience that he intentionally refrains from using any lethal force against ordinary security guards or police officers.



* ManChild: Downplayed, though Nate does have some rather childlike enthusiasm for all the crazy adventures he gets himself into, and he tends to crack cheesy jokes even while dodging gunfire. Justified, considering that he never had a normal childhood to begin with, having been thrown into an orphanage and running away ever since.



* MouthyKid: Back in his younger days.
* MyGreatestFailure: His opinion of his brother's death during their initial hunt for Avery's treasure. [[spoiler:He reveals to Elena that the reason he never spoke of him was it was something he chose to lock away because it was too painful a reminder]]. Thus his reasoning for going to such great lengths to save his brother as MyGreatestSecondChance.

%%* AntiHero

to:

%%* AntiHero* AntiHero: Sully is a criminal, but one with morals. Hurting people unnecessarily is a good way to get on his bad side, especially if they are kids.



%%* BadassMoustache

to:

%%* BadassMoustache* BadassMoustache: Sully's mustache is as iconic to him as his cigar.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''The Lost Legacy'' there is a trophy called "The Best Driver in the Business" its gotten in The Western Ghats by driving from the Gate of Halebidu to the Waterfall Fortress and back again in under 3 minutes, its tough even if you know the best path.


Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While Nate leans more toward the ''heart of gold'' Chloe tends to lean more toward jerkiness but even at her worst it tends to be because she is worried about the people she cares about and the fact that they wont stop risking their lives for altruism. In ''The Lost Legacy'' she slowly loses the jerk part as she grows closer to Nadine and becomes more of an enemy rather then rival to Asav.
