** BadassNormal: No amount of Nazi cyborgs or occult magic can take this guy down.
** HandicappedBadass: Having a piece of shrapnel lodged in his head may put him out of commission, but not for long ([[TimeSkip sort of]]). [[spoiler:The damage from the shrapnel even allows him to shake off a poison Bubi injects him with!]]

* EmbarrassingTattoo: Looks on his Nazi tattoos as these. He's holding on to them [[TheAtoner as a reminder of what he's done]] until they can overthrow the Nazi regime, at which point he'll have them removed.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The correct polish spelling of her name is Ania. Shouldn't be a problem, since the language uses the same alphabet, but for some reason Machine Games chose to use a transcription from Russian instead. "Anya" is actually VERY grating to any Polish player.

to:

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The This one's tricky. While her in-game name is rendered as the Russian-sounding "Anya", the correct polish Polish spelling of her name would be "Ania". The switch is Ania. Shouldn't be a problem, rather pointless since the language uses two names share very little in terms of phonetics, the same alphabet, but for some reason Machine Games chose "j/y" sound being almost inaudible in Polish, since the "ni" compound is virtually always pronounced closer to the lines of the Spanish "ñ", and so, quite ironically, even a gamer with no prior exposure to Polish spelling would probably stand a better chance of reading the name properly were it to be "Ania" rather than "Anya".
** And just to make things even more confusing, her last name is spelled with a "w", as Polish ortography would have it be, rather than a "v". It should be noted that the Polish script is pretty much the only major Latin-based Slavic alphabet
to use a transcription from Russian instead. "Anya" "w" in place of "v". Why the devlopers would opt to mess with the self-evident first name rather than the less-than-obvious last name is actually VERY grating to any Polish player. anyone's guess. For a somewhat plausible pronunciation of "Oliwa", attach an "-ah" sound at the end of the word "olive".

* OlderSidekick: He's older then B.J. and becomes a BadassGrandpa in 1960, [[spoiler: if he survives back in '46.]]

to:

* OlderSidekick: He's older then B.J. and becomes a BadassGrandpa in 1960, [[spoiler: if he survives back in '46.]]]] It becomes a point of contention between the two in 1960, as he brings up the fact that he and BJ are only going to slow down with age.
-->'''Fergus''': What happens when we're too fucking battered to strap on the holsters?



** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Even BEFORE the Incinerator sequence, (where he spends most of the time being the NewMeat NervousWreck), he takes a [[RobotDog Panzerhund]] that was mauling B.J.... telling it to "GoFetch" with [[GrenadeHotPotato a grenade]], [[StuffBlowingUp blowing the whole contraption sky-high]].
** TakesALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: The '''second''' he is spared vivisection by Deathshead]] he instantly goes up a level. He definitely went up a couple more levels between the escape from Deathshead's compound and 1960.

He definitely went up a couple more levels between the escape from Deathshead's compound and 1960. It seems the minute BJ shows up and slaps him he starts leveling up, going from a shaking wreck, to scared but useful on the beach, to ''kicking ass''.

* BadassBookworm: He's certainly qualified for the bookworm part, but the badass angle comes in when you realize he was placed in a concentration camp ''before the war ended'' twenty years previously. And is still alive.
* CoolOldGuy: He's an old man, snarks at BJ, is shown taking care of the other inmates in the concentration camp, and [[spoiler: knows how to build super-advanced technology and where to locate a cache of the stuff.]]
