* ThePollyanna: Gibraltar has the following comments about Pathfinder:
--> '''Gibraltar''': "You know who gets that? Pathfinder. Boy, weíve had some showdowns in the Games. Ones I thought for sure would end with him in the trash heap. But that scrappy little MRVN always comes back, with an even better attitude. He could be one bullet away from being recycled, and still find the bright side in it. The others all think heís nuttier than my Uncle Jerret at a peanut farmÖ but that robot lives better than most humans Iíve met. Reminds me ofÖ well, letís just say he reminds me of someone else I used to know..."


--> '''Lifeline''': "If you ask me, it doesnít matter what side they were on. We all had our own part in the war. No one is truly innocent, so we all deserve help. Like I said, I donít care about the title, but donít let that fool you, I am here to win...for them. The Legends are out there...they just donít know it yet."

* PintSizedPowerhouse: Wraith is one of the smallest legends. But in cinematics, she's constantly shown to be much stronger than her physical build suggests, such as how she threw [[FatBastard Caustic]] into a Dimensional Rift in the launch railer. Remember that Caustic is ''a head taller than Wraith and overweight''.

* FutureMeScaresMe: [[spoiler:In the Voidwalker short, Past!Wraith is visibly disturbed by the apparent ease with which her future self maims and/or kills anyone in her way, whereas she herself can't even bring herself to kill a scientist who's completely at her mercy. By the end, however, she gets quite a bit more comfortable with the prospect]].

* HearingVoices: Her passive, Voices from the Void, is a voice that warns her when danger approaches. It's currently not known where this voice comes from. [[spoiler: But if Season 2's Voidwalker animation is anything to go by, the voice seems to come from her future or alternate reality selves]].

* FlashStep: Her tactical ability makes her phase into an alternate dimension for a brief period of time, making it look like she's teleporting (though not by virtue of being extremely fast). During that time, Wraith is invisible to her enemies. This ability is extremely useful for flanking enemies or getting out of troubles.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Her bio said that she had spent some time in a detention facility for the mentally ill. Her disorder has never been specified, but her blunted emotions seem indicative of depression and/or PTSD, quite possibly due to the trauma that caused her to lose her memory.

There once was a robot crusader.
Who searched the universe for his creator.
Heís worked every job,
loves corn on the cob,
and has no idea how limericks work."

** In Season 3, we have got this text for the "Pathfinder the Poet" loading screen:
--> '''Pathfinder''': "Hi! Iím Marvin and I love everything. Iíve learned a lot from so many talented people, like how to dance, cook, wash dishes, to swing on a trapeze, to fly a ship, to construct buildings, to fight, and almost how to write poetry. Hereís one!

* SimpleYetAwesome: Octane's most used ability is simply a burst of speed, but being significantly faster than everyone else, even just for a few seconds, has a ''huge'' variety of uses, ranging from flanking, escaping an unfavorable engagement, to safely grabbing a squadmate's banner while enemies are still around.

* FreezeFrameBonus: In the Season 3 cinematic trailer, he could be seen ''playing 3 video games at the same time'', and one of the games appears to be Titanfall 2.
* GradualRegeneration: The passive Quick Mend regenerates a point of health every other second. It's not fast enough to generally matter in battle, but will usually be a full heal in the long stretches between.

* ItAmusedMe: Compared to most of the other legends, he definitely looks like he's enjoying his time in the Apex Games. He's often seen laughing during a match, such as when he launches off his jump pads.

* FragileSpeedster: Even moreso than Wraith. His tactical ability makes him the fastest Legend and his jump pad lets him leap over any obstacle and lead his team to do impressive flanking maneuvers. However, his Stim ability also makes him ''lose health'' when he uses it, making him even more vulnerable to getting injured. However, if a player can utilize his speed to avoid taking fire while simultaneously dishing it out, he can quickly turn into quite a threat.

* DontThinkFeel: He seems to show little interest in having forethoughts, and it has been commented on by the other legends.
--> '''Bangalore''': "Maybe Silva isnít so bad. Heíd take a bullet for anyoneÖ mostly Ďcause heís already fifty paces ahead, charging in with no game plan and even less strategy."



* TheFaceless: All of Octane's face is obscured by his mask; even unlockable skins don't show anymore than his ears. The Season 2 cinematic trailer did involve his lens breaking, enabling us to have a glimpse of his left eye.

* FlashStep: Invoked. In the game, Octane's speed never reaches the point where he actually looks like he's teleporting, but Octane himself tried to invoke this in some of his voice lines.
