- Blind Without 'Em: Though not as much as Miss Whoops.
- Imagine Spot: His daydreams, which are always about something dangerous happening to him.
- Nervous Wreck: He frequently lapses into daydreams that are blown-out-of-proportion, then will then usually flee for his life, screaming and shouting.
- You Don't Look Like You: Mr. Nervous (or Mr. Jelly in the British dub) looks nothing like his book counterpart.
- Hypocritical Humor: Every time he tells the other characters to be quiet.CAN YOU PLEASE KEEP IT DOWN, MR. QUIET? I'M PRACTICING!

Scary's loud snoring:Mr. Strong: "Miss. Scary?"Mr. Nervous: "B-b-but she's no monster!"Mr. Grumpy: "Well, that depends on how you look at it."
- Took a Level in Kindness: In the original books, he yells at everyone (frightning them into doing whatever he wants), and destroys books and flowers just because he doesn't like them, not to mention trying to make Little Miss Sunshine cross note just because he doesn't like her being happy; he even assaulted Mr Happy a few times in the books. Here, he's more tolerant of happy people, and instead of yelling or destroying things, is just grumpy and sarcastic.

- Butt Monkey: Of course, since he's quiet, he often gets dragged into loud and often dangerous situations.
- Gentle Giant: Though he's really only a giant in the sense that he has long legs.
- Suddenly Voiced: In the episode "Travel." It was his only speaking role, as he was otherwise a background character.
- Deadpan Snarker: For example, from the episode "Games" when he, Mr. Happy, and Mr. Lazy were playing horseshoe toss:Mr. Lazy: Wait a minute, Mr. Happy. You mean I have to throw something, like with my arms?Mr. Rude: No, Mr. Lazy. With your magic powers.
