* OlderIsBetter: Averted. His belief is that newer always equals better, and the newest Halo game is always best game of all time. This has led to his throwing away his copy of Reach when he found out Halo 4 came out. [[RuleOfThree And then throwing Halo 4 away when he learned The Master Chief Collection (Contains Halo Combat Evolved, 2, 3 and 4) came out.]]

to:

* ManipulativeBastard: Gives a depressed Arbiter the advice that if he feels like his life has no meaning, he should dedicate his time to creating something rather than mope around all day. He convinces him to help him create a movie while barely ever helping, bossing him around relentlessly and insults him near constantly, and then holds the threat of 'your life will have no purpose' whenever he threatens to leave to get him to stay.

* DreadfulMusician: Creator of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CewOjHHwR4 ACTIVATE remix]]. His brief return as an online musician also led to him concluding that sounding off every note slot on a virtual piano at the same time was his masterpiece.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroicBSOD: Parodied and taken to the extreme when Chief walks in on Arbiter watching a Youtube video with Minecraft gameplay.

He's still shocked and frozen in the next episode until Arbiter provokes him into coming to his senses again.


Added DiffLines:

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Delivers a few to Chief when he crosses too many lines. [[spoiler: Arbiter cripples Chief and scrambles his voice box when he finds out he killed Cortana.]]


* EvilCounterpart: To Arbiter. Both share the same beliefs on life and their places in the universe.

* EvilCounterpart: To Arbiter. Both share the same nihilistic beliefs on life and their places in the universe.universe. But while Arbiter has a cooler, more patient head and has a good moral compass, Eugene is quick to anger and is vicious bully to those around him.

Added DiffLines:

* YouAreNotAlone: [[spoiler:Claire is quick to forgive Arbiter after she repairs the damage he did to her account and console, fully understanding that he's going through a lot. She's reasonably angry at what he's done, but otherwise orders him to spend time with her so she can make sure he's okay.]]

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He does have a few PetTheDog moments and does seem to genuinely like Arbiter despite his abrasiveness.

to:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He does have a few PetTheDog moments and does seem to genuinely like Arbiter despite his abrasiveness. Season 8 has a moment where Arbiter asks Chief if he even believes in the concept of good and evil. At the very least, Chief wants to be one of the good guys.


* VillainRespect: He compliments Arbiter during the TOSSERS tryout raid, claiming that he's gotta give credit where it's due.




to:

* ShutUpKirk: Duncan tries to get her to back out after she confronts him, and she throws it right back in his face:
--> '''Duncan:''' You should really consider backing out too you know, before it's too late. You're banning countless innocent players with no just cause, and threatening the activity of a very popular and profitable service. People go to prison for shit like this. Whatever you're getting, it isn't worth the risk.
--> '''Kylie:''' I'll feel no regret watching this sexist, racist, homophobic cesspit of acne-ridden, basement-dwelling neckbeards burn and whither. [[CruelToBeKind I'll be helping them. I'll be shaking them out from their addiction, like you lock a heroine addict away for his own good]], and I'd gladly do it for free.
* WolfInSheepsClothing: She puts on an innocent act to manipulate people and put them in a false sense of security, but she's ruthless in the game.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Downplayed, but it's there. Whilst he's firmly on the side of good and feels immense guilt for accidentally banning two players, he can be quite sarcastic and pushy towards his best friend Kyle.
