* '''Parodied''': Dr. Crzaystein is a bumbling MadScientist whose schemes ''somehow'' manage to work.
* '''Deconstructed''': Dr. Crazystein knows that he's smarter than Evulz; however, he also knows that Evulz's brutality is unmatched. The knowledge that he may get Bad Boss'd one day aggravates his pre-existing neurosis. As a last resort, he may try to conjure up a GambitPileup to prevent his latest failure from being realized.
* '''Reconstructed''': Dr. Crazystein knows that he's smarter than Evulz and that Evulz's brutality is unmatched. Thus, he endeavors to make himself useful to Evulz on all occasions, so that his rare screw-ups will be ignored, and his advice heeded. He also realizes that Evulz, bloodthirsty or not, is better leadership material than he is (personal magnetism, better fighter in an AsskickingEqualsAuthority society, who knows?) and thus remains loyal.
