* TheSmartGuy
* ActionSurvivor - More than the other characters because he can't adequately defend himself, and when a villain wants something shut down/turned on the control room is the first place they go.
* ButtMonkey - [[http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegangoffive/index.php?showtopic=7319&view=findpost&p=9183965 Shelton]] [[http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegangoffive/index.php?showtopic=4340&view=findpost&p=9055770 gets]] [[http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegangoffive/index.php?showtopic=4340&view=findpost&p=9041955 beat]] [[http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegangoffive/index.php?showtopic=5381&view=findpost&p=9131116 up]] [[http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegangoffive/index.php?showtopic=6970&view=findpost&p=9148958 a]] [[http://z7.invisionfree.com/thegangoffive/index.php?showtopic=7319&view=findpost&p=9179211 lot]].

** His ambiguous nationality is a RunningGag. To expand: he's used phrases or sayings from several different dialects, like Canadian, Australian, or British, but he's mentioned his mother didn't speak English, and his father was in the American Navy, but he went to school in Switzerland, yet when he lost his job he was sent to Austria, and in the end retired to Scotland...about the only thing we can say for sure is that he's European.
* DeadPanSnarker - Oh so much.
* [[DoAnythingSoldier Do Anything Scientist]] - He often complains that despite being in a team of scientists, he's the only one who ever does anything except shoot people.
