* GenreSavvy: After being corrected on his suffix usage by Wordgirl, he intentionally continued to misuse them anyway because he knew it would drive her nuts.

-->'''Tim:''' Look, Sally, it's our little girl as WordGirl. Hi, honey!

* TeamDad: Even though he IS WordGirl's nemesis. Before his lab accident, Steven seemed to be somewhat of a mentor to her, and even as Two-Brains, he often shows signs of this trope. For example, in the episode "A Few Words From WordGirl", he gives her fatherly advice when she can't think of a good speech for Inspiration Day. ("You're WordGirl! Your actions inspire people more than anything you could say.") He also acted this way towards Tobey in "Mousezilla", saying he'd been following Tobey's career and addressing him as "Tobey, my lad", and was proud of his robotic expertise...at least until they started bickering over how to fight WordGirl.

** Actually, Tobey seems to be somewhat ''afraid'' of his mother. The mere mention of her name is sometimes enough to make him jump and look around in terror. In the Miss Power special, Miss Power picks up on this right away and encourages WordGirl to make fun of him for it, which they both promptly do to the point that he has a [[HeroicBSOD Heroic BSOD]].

* StalkerWithACrush: At first. In the earlier seasons, he has little to no respect for WordGirl's boundaries. Hell, the very first episode has him declaring that once he can prove he's smarter than her, she'll be all his. And the robotic suit he tricks Johnson into giving her in "Go Gadget Go" is rigged so that once she's trapped inside, he can literally control her actions...ew. However, by the end of the show, he thankfully seems to have grown out of this. At the end of "It's Your Party And I'll Cry If I Want To", since he had a change of heart and didn't destroy Katie's birthday party, Wordgirl agrees with his suggestion that they get some ice cream. Later, in "The Robot Problem", when she has to go to Tobey for help defeating a robot, she declares that they make a pretty good team, to which he replies enthusiastically before catching himself. They also treat each other more like frenemies at this point than outright rivals.

* AffablyEvil: He's mainly soft-spoken and friendly to [=WordGirl=], but he's still a villain. He does go out of his way to make sure WordGirl doesn't get hurt, such as asking her if she's allergic to peanut butter before shooting her with it.

* MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal: Subverted; his mother doesn't seem to care about his villainy, and even threatens to take away his "evil villain allowance" if he doesn't stop losing to WordGirl.

* ObfuscatingDisability: Even when confronted with undeniable proof of her past crimes, people seem to have a tough time believing such a harmless little old lady could be planning to rob them, much to WordGirl's chagrin.

* ParentalFavoritism: Totally driven home in ''Who Wants to Get Rid of WordGirl?'' where Chuck is on TV and waves to his mother, who waves back briefly only to pull out a photo of Brent to admire instead.

* MovingTheGoalposts: Victoria's parents are never happy with ''anything'' she does, acting like she's a failure even when she's just done something amazing. They always complain that she isn't doing ''better,'' achieving ''more''. They do this to a completely unrealistic extent, for example wondering why she can't just magically develop superpowers better than WordGirl's.

* {{Yandere}}: As [=WordGirl=] explains to Tobey, "devotion" can quickly become "jealousy". This doesn't go well for him when he starts paying more attention to the real WordGirl than to WordBot, who doesn't appreciate this.

* BiTheWay: Most likely. He seems to have a crush on WordGirl, but WordOfGod says he and his best friend Johnson are dating by the end of the show.

* NeatFreak: Demands Chuck keep the house immaculate while she is gone; Chuck is scared enough of what will happen if he doesn't that he goes up against ''every other villain in the show'' to keep his house clean.
