Added DiffLines:

* UnwittingPawn: Averted. [[spoiler: He is ''not'' being manipulated by Halbech, unlike Westridge. He knows exactly who he's working for, and is completely okay with that.]]

* {{Adorkable}}: Can be played as such if your going for the joking, nice guy route with him. He comes off as a sarcastic if quirky agent and a AscenededFanboy of the spy scene. Notably in the Taipei safehouse, Mina suggests he take a shower, a possible response is Mike eagerly asking is this is "one of those secret entrance spy things". Another optional response in that same scene is about how eager he is to have this bunker.

* ColdSniper: [[Wields a sniper rifle, and her true personality seems quite melancholy.]] If you have Scarlet as your handler and your reputation with her is positive, you get the handler perk "Death By Zoom Lens", which boosts accuracy for pistols and sniper rifles. Pissing her off instead gets you the "Rivalry" perk, which reduces cooldown times for skills.

* [[spoiler:If he fights Westridge, then arresting him and leaving him for the courts to deal with becomes this, more so than executing him as he's knowingly inflicting a FateWorseThanDeath for the guy.]]

* Adorkable: A genuinely sweet girl whose got a sarcastic and flirty sense of humour of her own. Notably during the siege on Brayko's mansion, she hears the sound of the arcade and brings up being a gamer as a kid.

* ClingyJealousGirl: Downplayed. Building a relationship with her, Mike may loose a point with her if he prioritizes other women over her. Played more strait in [=SIE's= case, as she's clearly annoyed with SIE putting the moves on Mike.

Added DiffLines:

* BullyingTheDragon: [[spoiler:If you want to fight Marburg, it's required that Mike constantly joke or belittles him despite Marburg being a force to be reckoned with. Pushing his buttons in every encounter, Mike will turn this trope on its head by killing Marburg in the ensuing fight.]]


Added DiffLines:

* CruelMercy: [[spoiler:If Mike fights Westridge one option as opposed to executing him is leaving him for the government to throw under the buss and force him through years of court. It's especially tempting to do this when Westridge tells Mike to kill him already.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheDreaded: Becomes this by the end of the game, especially [[spoiler:if he takes down both Alpha Protocol and Halbech, he is called a forced to be reckoned with.]]


Added DiffLines:

* KickTheSonOfABitch: Can do this a lot (player optional of course)
** [[spoiler:In addition to sparing Brayko's life, Mike can take Brayko to kill and torture Surkov to death. He can even stay and watch.]]
** [[spoiler:If you want to kill Marburg, Mike is required to do this by heckling and belittling Marburg in nearly every encounter they have and giving him a big ReasonYouSuckSpeech to provoke him.]]
** [[spoiler:Punching Leland after their meeting is one way to refuse his deal.]]
** [[spoiler:Staying in the heroic path and killing Darcy is this after the guy beat up Mina.]]
** [[spoiler:Can cold bloodedly execute Scarlet Lake when she's outed as the assassin against Ronald Sung.]]
* [[spoiler:If he fights Westridge, then arresting him and leaving him for the courts to deal with becomes this, more so than executing him as he's knowingly inflicting a FateWorseThanDeath for the guy.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Playing Mike as a heroic NiceGuy gives us - although still a case of BewareTheNiceOnes. Again, all optional.
** [[spoiler:Letting Madison sleep if you are not trying to put the moves on her. The game rewards you with a "gentlemen" achievement.]]
** Going the none lethal route on a CIA operation. Mina in particular is touched by this.
** [[spoiler:When he meets President Sung, he begs the guy to take precautions for his rally after trying to warn him about the assassination and riots plot, taking everyone's safety seriously. Unfortunately he can only provide proof for one of these plots.]]
** [[spoiler:During his final confrontation with Margburg in Rome, Mike claims he intended to save both Madison and the civilians. Intended being the key word.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ActionGirl: Downplayed as she's not a fighter or field agent [[spoiler:but if you choose to save her, she will start shooting at Leland and/or Westridge's men. By all accounts, she also put up a fight when she was captured.]]
* Adorkable: A genuinely sweet girl whose got a sarcastic and flirty sense of humour of her own. Notably during the siege on Brayko's mansion, she hears the sound of the arcade and brings up being a gamer as a kid.

Added DiffLines:

* MoralityPet: If Mike wants to have a positive relationship, it might motivate the player to keep Mike on the heroic path. She is also genuinely grateful if Mike goes keeps the CIA raid mon lethal.
* NiceGirl: Mina is a genuinely sweet, if snarky, woman who wants to do the right thing and values Mike's more positive actions and choices.


Added DiffLines:

* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Mina has a tendency to joke around with Mike, and trade his flirtations with flirtations of her own.


* TheFixer: He can help Mike in a number of ways both inside of Taipei and outside of it. He's also very territorial and wants to know whenever anyone else runs operations in his town.
