* EvilIsPetty: When the Baudelaires ask why Nero can't simply change the rules so that orphans can live in the dorms like every other students instead of the orphan shack and broom closet, he condescendingly repeats the question like a SpoiledBrat would before saying that he just doesn't want too.
** He doesn't just want the library to stay open for a maximum of 5 minutes per day, but he spends each day showing up at the library to ''make sure'' that there are no students after the allotted five minutes are up, threatening to have anyone still there to clean his toenails. The "on-paper" reason he gives for this is because he is trying to save on the school's budget, but when the librarian Olivia Caliban points out that the length of the library being open has no effect on the school's budget, he admits that he only does this because he just doesn't like her.


Added DiffLines:

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Carmelita Spats is a SpoiledBrat, a HateSink and [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior a flowering young sociopath]], but for ''some'' reason she is the only student he actually likes, literally allowing her to get away with ''everything.''
* ItsAllAboutMe: Nero is a narcissist and a {{Manchild}} of the worst kind. He is convinced that he is a genius violinist when really he is actually very bad at it, ignoring all voices to the contrary (like Julliard, who has since filed a restraining order against him) and forcing the entire school to attend his recitals, making students buy him a bag of candy and watching him eat it should they not attend. He makes various unnecessary cuts to the school's budget for unnecessary reasons (like buying himself a ruby-encrusted violin case) and ignores the blatant incompetency of his staff.


* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: He is so gullible that he is willing to believe just about any complete stranger (who is usually a poorly disguised Count Olaf) about ''anything'' over the Baudelaire children [[NotNowKiddo in-spite their track-record of being right about these sort of things]] [[JustAKid because they are children and he is the adult]].
--> '''Mr. Poe:''' I'm beginning to think it was a mistake to listen to that oddly-dressed consultant who walked into my office with no references and no identification, and who suggested that I place you in Count Olaf's care.



* {{Catchphrase}}: "Wait until the readers of the ''Daily Punctilio'' hear about this!" Said in response to pretty much ''every'' big development she hears about. She always says it in a very cheerful tone.
