Added DiffLines:

* CounterAttack: His fighting style in the movie seems entirely based around counter-attacking his opponents, never throwing a punch or kick first.

Added DiffLines:

* ShootTheShaggyDog: All of his personality changes and different outlook on life is rendered meaningless as he's one of the millions killed by Ozymandias' plan.

* TheAntiNihilist: By the end he has lost all optimism and happiness of his life, but is still determined to help people where he can.

* TheAntiNihilist: By the end he has lost all optimism and happiness of his life, but is still determined to help people where he can. When his wife tells him not to intervene in a street fight, he responds: "I have to. In a world like this... I mean, it's all we can do, try to help each other. It's all that means anything..."

Added DiffLines:

* BoomerangBigot: Was a very conservative and reactionary like many white Americans of the [=1950s=]...in spite of the fact his being gay would be detested by such a group. He voted Ursula Zandt out of the Minutemen for having been revealed to the public as a lesbian as well.


Added DiffLines:

* SemperFi: AvertedTrope - this former Marine is a lot less confident and boisterous than this trope would lead you to expect.

** Also, in the title sequence of the movie, he's seen walking into [[NoFameNoWealthNoService Studio 54]] and warmly greeting DavidBowie and MickJagger (whose infamously HomoeroticSubtext music video for "Dancing in the Street" came out around that time). TheVillagePeople are also onscreen for good measure.

Added DiffLines:

* BoxingBattler: His primary fighting style. Best seen in the film, when he drops into a 30's boxing stance to take on a group of home invaders. [[spoiler: He's eventually overpowered and killed, but puts up a hell of a fight beforehand, expertly ducking and parrying the blows of the much larger, younger men.]]
