Enforced: The action figure manufacturer included voice-clips of Bob shouting ridiculous one-liners and the names of his various super attacks, so the writers gave him a personality to match.
Lampshaded: “Bob sure likes to get fired up. Does this fight mean that much to him or is he just crazy?”
Invoked: Bob has modeled his behavior after his favorite big-muscled heroes in comics who always speak in CAPITAL LETTERS!
Defied: Alice goes on a mission instead of Bob because it requires patience, stealth, and discretion, traits Bob decidedly lacks.
Discussed: “Listen Bob, unlike in action movies, the best warriors in real life tend to be those who can keep a cool head under pressure. Can you tone it down a little?”
Conversed: “Ever notice how Bob never seems hesitant or doubtful when he gets in those action scenes? In fact he pretty much flips out all the time.” “Yeah, but it sure is fun to watch. His actor must be enjoying it too.”
Deconstructed: Bob is regarded as a reckless hot head who disregards tactics in favor of charging into trouble. His troops suffer from bad morale and eventually lose a critical battle.
Reconstructed: Bob realizes that true passion derives from holding a strong guiding belief, and reaffirms what La Résistance is fighting for in the first place. By reigning in his hot blood to account for tactics and planning and letting loose when things naturally heat up, Bob becomes an inspiration rather than an embarrassment.
Played For Drama: Bob is hiding deep-rooted psychological problems that cause him to lash out aggressively to every confrontation that comes his way, eventually culminating in a total nervous breakdown.
