* VillainousAromanticAsexual: While Daly enjoys tormenting his coworkers without end, he shows no interest in sex or romance of any kind, and even seems reluctant and a bit scared when confronted with the concepts; while his space adventures always end with a required kiss from one of the female ensigns, he insists on it being closed-mouth. He even goes so far as to remove the genitals of the crew's avatars to keep the simulation as chaste as possible. When Nanette tries to flirt with him in an attempt to distract him, he appears curious, but also somewhat uncomfortable with the situation.

* VillainousAromanticAsexual: While Daly enjoys tormenting his coworkers without end, he shows no interest in sex or romance of any kind, and even seems reluctant and a bit scared when confronted with the concepts; while his space adventures always end with a required kiss from one of the female ensigns, he clearly does it because he views it as an obligatory trope of the genre and insists on it being closed-mouth. He even goes so far as to remove the genitals of the crew's avatars to keep the simulation as chaste as possible. When Nanette tries to flirt with him in an attempt to distract him, he appears curious, but also somewhat uncomfortable with the situation.

* TheTransmogrifier: Because he prefers to roleplay being a starship captain rather than play god, Daly mainly uses his influence over the simulation to painfully transform any of his clone NPCs that dare rebel. Among other things, Nannette has her face erased, Shania is transformed into an alien monster, and several others rebellious characters have been transformed during the backstory and abandoned throughout the simulation until Daly feels like getting them involved with the game's narrative again; Daly has even gone so far as to erase the genitals of all his NPCs for the sake of a wholesome setting! Generally speaking, he doesn't use other powers or techniques unless he's really pissed off and wants to torture someone until they break.

Added DiffLines:

* LackOfEmpathy: Because he's so sociopathic, he's cruel, spiteful and sadistic when he's playing captain.


* RealityWarper: He can do anything within his game, with some limits. He can't transform anyone not in his presence, and he can't change the designed-in speed of space vessels. He probably could mod the game to let him from the outside, but likely wants the game to play as much like the Star Fleet TV show as possible, and doesn't know that he could possibly need these abilities.

Added DiffLines:

* VirtualRealityWarper: As the creator of ''Infinity'' he has access to an developer build of the game, but he's modded it to resemble his favourite TV show and granted himself special abilities within the game, from superhuman strength to the power to alter character models at will. Unfortunately, he mainly uses this for twisted power fantasies: having copied the minds of real people into the game, he forces them to participate in his attempts to play space hero, [[TheBlank erasing Nanette's face]] when she refuses to willingly participate and [[BalefulPolymorph transforming repeat offenders into monsters]] as punishment. His only weakness is that he needs to be in close proximity to a target for his powers to work.


* {{Adorkable}}: Gets adorably flustered when first meeting Daly, her idol.


* PsychopathicManchild: Robert Daly is clearly stunted both emotionally and socially. He is entitled to the point of viewing even harmless slights as disrespectful. He vents his frustrations on sapient clones of his co-workers by torturing them into playing along with his fantasies. While reliving his favorite TV show with himself as the hero, Daly does a lot of immature things such as resolving a showdown with an "enemy" by yelling that there was a naked lady behind him. Daly appears to be [[VillainousAromanticAsexual uncomfortable with anything even remotely sexual]], despite an implied desire for a romance with the real life Nanette Cole. When kissing the female crew members after "saving the day", Daly insists on keeping the kiss close-mouthed. He also [[KenDollAnatomy removes all the clones' genitals]], and feels very awkward when Cole’s clone tries to distract him by flirting. Walton's clone refers to the ''Space Fleet'' mod as a "playground", and Robert Daly is shown enjoying other child-like things such as pizza and chocolate milk. Daly's actor, Jesse Plemons, has even compared the character to a 12-year-old boy who is confused about his own feelings and actively wishes for control.

Considering the [[NightmareFuel potential scenarios]] a god-like sexual sadist in Daly's shoes could have dreamed up, this was presumably to keep the {{Squick}} factor to a minimum.

* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: Well, teal. And she finds it racist, too.

* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: Well, teal. And she finds it racist, too.With the ''Space Fleet'' mod being an homage to the original ''Star Trek'' series, including a character like this is pretty much mandatory. Daly picked his company's self-absorbed female receptionist for the role, who of course doesn't miss the opportunity to lampshade how freaky her blue skin tone is to her.
