** In "Roman Holiday," while visiting Rome, Marty accepts a race against Biff's Roman ancestor Bifficus after he calls Marty a chicken. This contradicts the huge lesson about common sense that Marty had learned around the time of his showdown with Mad Dog Tannen in the third film.[[note]]Some people might allege that a chariot race might be less dangerous than a gunfight, and that Marty losing that race was important to history, but it still doesn't explain why "chicken" is still such a BerserkButton for him.[[/note]]

* LikeADuckTakesToWater: Clara and Verne adapt to life in the 1990s perfectly. Jules is unpopular, but it's because of he's a nerd, not because he was born in the 1880s.

* BreakTheMotivationalSpeaker: During the Christmas episode, Marty tries to get Clara out of prison by using the YetAnotherChristmasCarol trick to appeal to the local Tannen's good nature. Unfortunately, none of the miserable things Marty shows him have any effect. Finally, Marty, in disgust, admits defeat. (Fortunately, he manages to find another way around the man's stubbornness.)

* TheDitz: In the film trilogy, Marty was a bit BookDumb and sometimes did stupid things because of his impulsiveness, but he was a quick-witted and capable assistant to Doc. Post CharacterExaggeration, he's much more of a dope and continually needs the Browns (including Jules and Verne) to help him out. Lampshaded in "The Money tree", where Jules laments that [[IntelligenceEqualsIsolation his intelligence has always made it tough for him to make friends]]. Marty remarks that that's never been a problem for him, right around the time he hits himself in the face with a ball he's tossing around.
