* GreenLanternRing: Ralph's shapeshifting can be surprisingly versatile.

* GreenLanternRing: Ralph's shapeshifting can be surprisingly versatile. Especially considering that unlike Plastic Man Ralph cannot ''truly'' shapeshift, only elongate himself in various ways.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Adorkable}}: Ralph's general schtick compared to other heroes like Flash and Batman, or even the wackier Plastic Man. It's a big part of why Sue fell for him.

* UglyGuyHotWife: According to Sue, he's a 7. Note that she was a DeadpanSnarker. However, according to Ralph in ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'', Sue was only attracted to ''him'' and not the more conventionally attractive superheroes like Barry Allen at a party.

* AddictionPowered: He drinks a lot of Gingold soda and gets super-stretch powers.
** The drink can apparently increase flexibility in most people who drink it, but you have to go to serious overdose levels to get actual stretching abilities, which can then be maintained by regular drinking of the normal product. A significant section of the human population is allergic to gingold extract, and thus unable to take advantage of the herb's special properties.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadpanSnarker: Naturally, he and Beetle get along well during crossovers between the JL ''International'' and ''Europe'' team.


Added DiffLines:

* HappilyMarried: To Sue. They have shared a log relathionship and many readers considered their loving relationship a breath of fresh air in an era when comics were becoming darker.
* NiceGuy


Added DiffLines:

* SelectiveObliviousness: His trademark thing is to move the nose when he notices a mystery. He says that his wife find it adorable. Everybody tells him that it is so grossly disgusting... including his wife.
