* FauxAffablyEvil: Chucky has pretty moments. As does Tiffany. Especially the LaughablyEvil LargeHam nature of their characters. This is also justified in the case with children he tries to possess, since he plays a FalseFriend role to earn their trust before trying to take over their body.

This is also justified in the case with children he tries to possess, since he plays a FalseFriend role to earn their trust before trying to take over their body. In the first film, he greets his voodoo mentor like they're friends before killing him. Unlike Tiffany however, he has no redeeming qualities.


* TookALevelInJerkass: She was never ''nice'' per se (being a sadistic serial killer), but ''Bride'' and ''Seed'' established that she has a soft spot for families, children, romance, etc. and is capable of compassion and remorse. In other words, she [[EvenEvilHasStandards has standards]]. She was also more than capable of standing up to Chucky once she felt those standards had been crossed. Evidence of this is how in [[spoiler: ''Bride'', she calls off the soul-switch between her, Chucky, Jesse, and Jade once she sees how in love Jesse and Jade are. In ''Seed'' she's concerned about Glen's safety and feelings even before realizing that he was her and Chucky's son. She's also seen interacting lovingly with other kids at the end of the aforementioned film.]] In ''Cult'', however, she has no qualms about killing absolutely anybody in order to help Chucky, and she [[spoiler: callously laughs off the death of Alice, Nica's niece, like it's nothing.]] This can also double as an OutOfCharacterMoment.

* EvilSorcerer: His use of [[HollywoodVoodoo voodoo]] [[BlackMagic magic]] in order to repeatedly cheat death makes him one of these. He also tortures and kills his [[WitchDoctor voodoo]] [[MentorOccupationalHazard teacher]] by injuring a {{voodoo doll}} of him.



* {{Jerkass}}: Chucky may be a serial killer with nothing resembling a FreudianExcuse who has no qualms about killing men, women or children. But beyond that, he's really just an asshole in general.

* TheSociopath: He was a SerialKiller before he became a doll, so he was most definitely this.

to:

* TheSociopath: He was a an AxCrazy SerialKiller both before and after he became a doll, so he was most definitely this. a psychopath.


Added DiffLines:

* WasOnceAMan: He was a human criminal who transferred his soul out of his dying body and into a plastic doll as a desperate measure to avoid death. One of his main goals is to steal another human body for himself, not wanting to spend the rest of his existence as a ridiculous-looking children's toy.

Added DiffLines:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: She's the girlfriend of Chucky, a sociopathic serial killer. To be fair, [[BirdsOfAFeather she's a killer as well]], albeit AffablyEvil.


Added DiffLines:

* PerkyFemaleMinion: A PerkyGoth who is just as evil and sadistic as the doll she is paired up with.


* SlashedThroat: Often kills her victims this way.

* SlashedThroat: Often kills Frequently offs her victims this way.


* {{Sadist}}: He personally takes pleasure in killing innocent people as his victims.

to:

* {{Sadist}}: He personally takes pleasure in killing innocent people as his victims. From ''Cult'':
--> You know, I love being me. And I love my job. Especially the look on my victim's face when they realize, in that final moment, that it's all really happening. A children's toy is actually beating them to death with a yardstick! Or setting them on fire. Eviscerating them. All actual examples.

Added DiffLines:

* AndThisIsFor: In a rare almost PetTheDog moment, Chucky states "this is for Nica" [[spoiler:before stomping Dr. Foley to death slowly and graphically, after having successful possessed Nica]].


Added DiffLines:

* KickTheSonOfABitch: While he kills rather indiscriminately if they are in his way of his goal, he seems to take extreme pleasure in [[AssholeVictim killing those who have it coming]] more than those who do not.


%%* EvilLaugh

to:

%%* EvilLaugh* EvilIsHammy: And he gets hammier and hammier with each installment.
* EvilLaugh: Has a distinctive, bombastic one.


* {{Sadist}}: Another trait she shares with Chucky. Just look at the [[http://kissthemgoodbye.net/horrors/displayimage.php?album=51&pid=97295#top_display_media expression on her face as she watches a couple she's just caused shards of glass to fall onto scream for their lives]].

** She also hates when her beliefs about marriage are laughed at. Chucky learned that the hard way twice; once when she mistakenly thought he proposed, and the second time when Jesse and Jade used her advice against her by starting an argument between them.
* BigBadDuumvirate [=/=] TheDragon: Sees herself as the former, Chucky sees her as the latter.

* NightmareFetishist: She's captivated by murder and gore, which shouldn't come as a surprise given that she's a SerialKiller. In ''Bride of Chucky'', when she thinks Damien has finally killed somebody, she asks him for the details with rapturous joy. She seems to also like more run-of-the-mill or harmless things that are spooky--spiders (she has a pet tarantula in ''Bride''), HorrorFilms (she watches ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'' in ''Bride'') and {{Goth}} decor. Additionally, she doesn't seem to find Chucky's grotesque, stitched up appearance to be a turn-off at all.
