* TheNthDoctor: Solomon Grundy's ResurrectiveImmortality is shown to have this as a side effect. Each time he comes BackFromTheDead, he comes back with a different appearance and level of physical power, and with a different aspect of Cyrus Gold's original personality rising to the fore. Since Gold was an awful human being who enjoys using the power being Grundy gives him to hurt people, this means that kindly, gentle Grundies (like the one seen in this series), are few and far-between.

* EveilIsPetty: This seems to be what Simon Culp suffers from in regards to The Shade from the very beginning, as he never gives a reasonable explanation for why he hates Shade and seems to have despised the man from the very start. This is even though, at the time they met, Shade was a simple, if prominent, businessman with a family who hadn't wronged Culp in any way. Then again, Culp is also Ax-Crazy, as evidenced by his own admission of having killed over 20 people long before he ever gained his CastingAShadow abilities.

** Over the course of the series, numerous people, including himself, note some of the ways that The Shade has changed over the years. He's been violent, charismatic, Ax-Crazy, goofy, well intentioned, world destroying, etc. This is mostly chalked up to the fact that he's lived such a long life and has therefore had the time to go through many different personalities and changes. While this is certainly one reason for his many changes, it also makes a bit more sense when it's revealed that he's been SharingABody with Simon Culp for over 30 years and that Culp has, without Shade's knowledge, been in control of their shared form at numerous points in time.

* SharingABody: During the ''Grand Guignol'' arc it's finally revealed that this is the situation between Shade and Simon Culp and that it has been since WorldWarII. This is used to then explain previously mentioned incidents where The Shade was a little off in comparison to how he usually is. That time he tried to destroy the world? The time where he appeared to be a CloudCookoolander? All Culp.
