Added DiffLines:

* BrilliantButLazy: Both Bill and Ted BookDumb, but are far smarter than anyone gives them credit for (even themselves), but would rather slack off and play rock music (poorly). Part of their development is them growing out of it.

* SternTeacher: Mr. Ryan believes that Bill and Ted are capable of more, [[BrilliantButLazy but lack proper motivation.]]

* RetroactivePreparation: As dumb as the pair can be, they have an intuitive understanding of this. In the first film, the two realize that since they have a time machine, they can do things like steal a key later to get into a locked building now. This is practically elevated to a martial art in the second film, where the duo and the BigBad try to out-prepare each other [[spoiler before pointing out that only the winner of the showdown can actually make use of it.]]

** Arguably the first film did this with the absurd number of people they cram into the thing, subtly drawing attention to the fact that it is most assuredly ''not'' BiggerOnTheInside. (Although you'd be surprised how many people you can fit into a phone booth. There's a ''reason'' why it was such a popular prank.)

to:

Added DiffLines:

* CoversAlwaysLie: In ''Bill & Ted's Most Triumphant Return,'' the final issue's cover promises a brawl between Bill and Ted in a HumongousMecha shaped like Station, against De Nomolos in his own, two headed robot. The story does feature giant robots, but not the ones depicted, nor do they fight.
** In-Universe example in ''Bogus Journey.'' The boys complain that Hell does not resemble their album covers.

* GeniusDitz: Despite being uncomplicated slackers, Bill and Ted have a natural instinct for mastering the [[RetroactivePreparation causal]] and [[TrickedOutTime paradoxical]] [[SanDimasTime effects]] of time travel. Also, while their use of the English language is most unconventional and egregiously unorthodox, their vocabulary does seem to be more well developed than most teenagers, or for that matter most ''anyone''.
** Try reading that in their voices. IT FITS.
