* BornLucky: Oscillates between this and BornUnlucky. For one, no matter in how many crazy misadventures he ends up involved, Todd will always come out more or less unscathed or not worse for wear. Though it ends up firmly in BornLucky territory by Season 6, when [[spoiler:his stepdad comes to visit]], and it's revealed that Todd never plans ahead or applies himself because he knows things will "just always work out" for him, and he just wants to coast through life on his own eternally charmed luck.

* DidNotThinkThisThrough: While Todd is UnluckilyLucky, most of his hard luck comes from him not thinking through one of his [[ZanyScheme zany schemes]] and almost suffering the consequences for it, only for his own [[BornLucky supernaturally good luck]] to prevent him from suffering any ''real'' harm. For example, in Season 1 [[ItMakesSenseInContext he tries to court two separate prison gangs]] in a "two dates, one prom" scenario, and when it predictably goes south he's only saved from having his arms broken by the prison suddenly bursting open.

* EntitledBastard: For a LazyBum who mooches off other people and spends years living with [=BoJack=] [[spoiler:then a year with Princess Carolyn]] rent-free, Todd can get pretty bent out of shape about things. Especially in Season 5, [[spoiler:when he goes to Corporate Mediation about Princess Carolyn allegedly eating "his" string cheese, ignoring her repeatedly pointing out that it's ''her'' apartment and he doesn't even pay rent.]]

* HiddenDepths: He has aspirations for fame and fortune.

to:

* HiddenDepths: He has aspirations for fame and fortune. Of course, he's too [[LazyBum lazy]] to act on them, and relies on his own [[BornLucky good luck]] to see him through.



* InformedAttribute: His being so sweet and thoughtful can feel a little more [[ShowDontTell told than shown]], since Todd is still an [[LazyBum eternal slacker]] who [[{{NEET}} sleeps on other people's couches rent-free]], occasionally shows profound entitlement to his roommates (like the string cheese incident with Princess Carolyn in Season 5), and often acts without thinking how his zany schemes will affect other people. For example, in Season 3 Todd and Mr Peanutbutter are equally responsible for the "safe for women" cab driving business venture Todd started with Emily becoming the very "sexploitative to women" farce it was created to combat, but while Mr Peanutbutter is at least passive-aggressively called out on it by Diane, Emily continues to praise Todd as "sweet" and thoughtful.



* JustTheWayYouAre: If a character criticizes Todd for being a {{NEET}} LazyBum (like [=BoJack=], Yolanda, or Todd's stepdad), odds are good they'll be portrayed as a jerk for it, or will realize that Todd is just fine the way he is and shouldn't have to apply or improve himself.



* NeverMyFault: Yes, [=BoJack=] does treat him badly, but Todd ''is'' mooching off him, sleeping on his couch and living in his place rent-free. When Todd finally has enough of [=BoJack=], he winds up crashing on Princess Carolyn's couch instead. He also still resents his parents for kicking him out, even though by then he was mooching off them well after high school. (Playing video games instead of going to college, getting a job, or applying himself.]]

He also still resents his parents for kicking him out, even though by then he was mooching off them well after high school. (Playing school, playing video games instead and showing no intention of [[{{NEET}} going to college, getting a job, or applying himself.]]himself in any way]].



* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: No matter what the conflict of the episode is, odds are good that Todd will either be portrayed as in the right, with every character not singing his praises to be portrayed as a jerk or coming around to his way of thinking by the end, or a lovable scamp who gets in a few scrapes but ultimately walks away from his wacky misadventure mostly unscathed, regardless of the damage his actions caused. (For example, the Season 5 Finale ends with [[spoiler:Todd's sex robot Henry Fondle to get the show Philbert canceled, costing thousands of employees their jobs [[ShaggyDogStory despite the cast's attempts to save the show]], and Todd is never called out on it.]]

** {{Jossed}} in Season 6's "The Kidney Stays in the Picture," where it's revealed that his Hispanic stepfather is an educated, articulate, sophisticated businessman who tried to teach Todd the value of education, hard work, and ambition when he was growing up, only for Todd to throw all his chances away because Todd is white and wants to coast through life on his own white privilege and eternally [[BornLucky good luck]]. Which is sadly also TruthInTelevision.

* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Somewhat deconstructed - [=BoJack=] ''could'' throw Todd out easily, but doesn't as he's starved for companionship. Also averted for Princess Carolyn, who likes having him around even though he's as much of a mooch to her as he was to [=BoJack=]. [[spoiler:He eventually becomes her live-in nanny, at least.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ZanyScheme: Todd usually develops these in lieu of any real planning or life direction since things "just always work out" for him due to being BornLucky.


* AesopAmnesia: Discussed in a Season 6 episode "The Kidney Stays In the Picture," where Todd explaisn to his stepdad that Todd never ''has'' to learn from his mistakes or learn to plan for the future because things "just always work out" for him.

* StaticCharacter: In a show that likes to rake its characters across the coals and force them to undergo much-needed CharacterDevelopment (and EmotionalRegression, then development again), Todd often gets off easy from his wacky misadventures and carries on cheerful as ever. He started the series as a CloudCuckoolander LazyBum and ManChild sleeping on [=Bojack=]'s couch, and as of late Season 6 is ''still'' a CloudCuckoolander LazyBum and Manchild who just now sleeps on [[spoiler:Princess Carolyn]]'s couch instead. (He does become her live-in nanny, but still.)

* BornUnlucky: Yes, between this and BornLucky, this can crop up more often. After all, there's a reason why all this shit keeps happening to him, of all people. So far, nothing has killed him but he has never walked away without something horrible, humiliating or confidence shattering befalling him. Adding to that he's homeless, crashing at a selfish horse's house who treats him like shit despite being ''his only friend''. Damn.

* LazyBum: Especially in the earlier episodes when all he would do would be hanging around the house, eating [=BoJack=]'s food and dropping garbage all around the corners and [[RunningGag never pick up his shit]]. Afterwards, however, he slowly became more active in the other plots, secondary or primary, mainly by befriending Mr. Peanutbutter and becoming partners in PB Living.

It wasn't long before Todd became a full-blown [[TheDitz ditz]] and [=BoJack=] became even more snarky and aware of how different he is from other people.
