* PetTheDog: In the manga, he thinks back to fond memories of the times he and Holland spent together as children before his death (may count as both a CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming, TearJerker, and AlasPoorVillain all at the same time). In the anime, he is depicted as a thoroughly [[ItsAllAboutMe egocentric]] and [[LackofEmpathy cold-hearted]] individual with no humanizing moments aside from a brief flashback to his childhood where he is seen visibly grief-stricken over the death of his mother.

* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:He martyred himself in an attempt to become a hero just like Adrock, believing that if he was going to be unable to a live a hero, he could die like one, and he hated the world he lived in so much that he didn't care about dying. Only... he wasn't a hero, as every step he took bastardized the idea of being a hero and instead put humanity through more and more crap. All he managed to do was go batshit crazy and kill himself in a final act of misguided and perverted justice.]]

Only... he wasn't a hero, as every step he took bastardized the idea of being a hero and instead put humanity through more and more crap. All he managed to do was go batshit crazy and kill himself in a final act of misguided and perverted justice. Even worse, he never learned Adrock as well as his daughter was still alive and he almost killed him for good in attacking the Command Cluster where he presided, but with the world of Scubs apparently being a vast network, Adrock and Diane somehow got away.]]


* DramaticIrony: Adrock was Dewey's mentor and the father figure in Dewey's life he really needed to keep him humane, as he was not some adherent to a strange quasi-mystical order but a human who thought on human terms. When Adrock was taken into the Command Cluster, Dewey lost the one person who helped him get a grip on life and not think about seeking glory, though there were some signs of cracks starting to show in his mentality regardless (he was obsessed with the idea of completing Operation Necrosis and thus have the honor of personally saving the world). [[spoiler:Dewey later tried to go after his own brother in his escalating madness, and by extension, Renton, the son of his dear mentor.]]

* EntitledBastard: Dewey is a massive example. When you fail to save the world the first time around and your father emphasized the importance of becoming a king on high, and you lose the only person in your world keeping you from falling back to those old and unpleasant ways, what do you do? [[spoiler:Force another crisis to happen and eliminate the people who know what you're really up to so that you have an excuse to set the stage so can have your proper moment of being humanity's hero and avenge the apparent death of your mentor and piss on the world that you live in that you hate all in one go.]]



* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Getting passed over as family heir for his younger brother and his failure to fulfill his family's ritual when he was young gave Dewey a desire to assert himself as a superior person by becoming the savior of humankind [[spoiler:through destroying humankind and the Scub Coral in order to bring about the death and rebirth of the planet.]]

[[spoiler:Dewey was the one who played the final and most important part in Operation Necrosis, the original plan to quiet the Scub Coral. He would have been the one to complete it by making Silver Box properly sync to the Command Cluster, and that would finally bring it under control. He would then know the honor of being the one person who was the savior of the world by means of being the finishing touch to the plan. Instead, he bungled it at the last moment because he and Holland were riding intensely unstable Trapar waves and a sonic boom tore through his Devilfish, causing him to wipe out. Dewey didn't reach Silver Box before it activated and it struck the Earth instead of the Command Cluster. Ten years later, Dewey decided to make up for this mistake by engineering another excuse to attack the Command Cluster by gradually stealing control over the military and getting rid of anyone who could talk sense into the world, made it seem like the Command Cluster was going to become a threat to humanity all over again by provoking the Scubs into action when Adrock had already put the cluster at rest, and took advantage of their gullibility in a time when they were already upset the Scubs remained agitated and caused destruction at times.]]



* StartOfDarkness: It was already in motion after Holland was born, but Dewey didn't fully snap until Operation Necrosis failed. [[spoiler:Witnessing the destruction of the world firsthand because of the fiasco with Silver Box drove Dewey to a point of despair where he decided there was no point in salvaging what was left, but taking the destruction ''even further'' just to reach a point where there could be a world without Scubs and humanity could finally have a chance to start over... if they proved worthy enough of surviving the destruction yet to come. Holland realized what Dewey was planning on doing when he started committing malicious and atrocious acts to get to this outcome, which finished Dewey's transition to full villainy when he realized Holland did not share in his sentiments and grew to completely hate his younger brother, who now opposed him and tried to rise up on his own accord. Dewey now felt threatened by Holland rallying people around him and remembered how he had been robbed of a royal title due to Holland, saw this as another slap to the face, and began a crusade to be rid of his brother along with the Scubs.]]

* StrawNihilist: A ''very'' twisted example. After losing Adrock in the First Summer of Love and failing to save the world himself, Dewey gives up on trying to salvage the badly damaged civilization after this tragedy and would rather bring about a new one entirely, with no interest left in the ruined one, and a lot of hatred toward it he represses until he starts to crumble. It doesn't matter to him how much more he kills and destroys as long as he eradicates the Scubs. If he achieves a universe with no Scubs, then he's won.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: Dewey goes through multiple instances where he feels robbed of his moment of esteemed glory in life, and when even his dress sword breaks at the discovery it's just for decoration, it's enough to really piss him off. [[And when he finds himself cornered at the end of all his plans going up in smoke, he decides to gain his glory through a suicide, becoming a martyr. If he could not live a hero, he could always die one.]]


''Hi-Evolution'' reveals Dewey was not always a bad person at heart, but after witnessing the planet nearly wiped out, he lost faith in what little was left and rejected the pathetic state of the world afterward. Feeling entitled to better, Dewey began a crazed effort to shape a better world without care for how much worse he made it on the way there.



* WasOnceASweetChild: Dewey was a kind person until he witnessed the cataclysm of Operation Necrosis. It caused enough destruction that he became a total nihilist and refused to care about ''any'' life as long as the world he hated living in still stood, and began this delusional effort to make a better world come about by ''continuing'' to screw over what he believed was not worth saving.

* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:Dewey witnessed the planet laid to ruins by Operation Necrosis when it went horribly wrong. He saw the world left behind as beyond saving and unworthy of continuing, and decided he might as well take the destuction to its ultimate extreme and say to hell with whoever's left, they don't matter, I'll keep going until we finally get rid of the Scubs and have a world to ourselves.]]



* InsaneTrollLogic: [[spoiler:Dewey's plan to save the world is to give up on the world that has been already pushed to the brink by the Operation Necrosis disaster and do everything in his power to make for a world with no Scubs at all, no matter how much death it causes.]]



* OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler: Despite professing to be the savior of mankind, he admits towards the end of the series that his real objective is to preserve humanity's "dignity" by destroying it along with the Scub Coral.]]

His reason for doing so is rage toward the fact the first attempt to quiet the Command Cluster failed and plunged humanity into an age of ruin he felt they couldn't recover from.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: ''Hi-Evolution'' shows that Dewey was supposed to make Silver Box properly connect to the Command Cluster. Instead, he wrecked the Devilfish trying to reach it and the Silver Box blew apart the Earth by accident. Outraged at how this all led to humanity being reduced to a smattering of ruins, Dewey performed a villainous version of the trope when tried his own hand at taking care of the Command Cluster and decided to outright destroy it.

* FatCat: A badger variant. It is immensely overweight, and therefore can not be easily transported or moved.

to:

* EmpathyPet: Subverted. Gulliver is stoic, unwieldy, and a general annoyance to everyone but Anemone. He does become more affectionate towards Dominic toward the end of the series, often riding on his shoulder, as Anemone is becoming generally softer and less psychotic. So maybe in that sense the trope is played straight.

It is immensely overweight, and therefore Notably, the critter has some kind of ''[[ArtificialGravity control]]'' over this; He becomes light enough that Anemone can not be lift him easily transported or moved.whenever she plays with him, but can also gravitationally weld his fat rear to your bunk if that's where he wishes to nap. A memorable scene is him doing this to Dominic, leaving the poor boy to vainly attempt to yank several "tons" of white fluff out of his bed so he can get some god-damned sleep.


* SealedEvilInACan: At the beginning of the series, he was imprisoned for war crimes committed against the Vodarac - and for losing the Federation's most advanced ship at the time, the Gekko. When the Coralian threat reemerged, the Sages saw fit to reinstate him with full rank and authority. ''[[{{Understatement}} Biggest. Mistake. Ever.]]''
