Added DiffLines:

* PickYourHumanHalf: Human personailty, robot appearance, like all sapient Mr Handies.

Added DiffLines:

** The idea never comes up in-game, but one could simply interpret him as being the very same pre-war Nick Valentine, just reincarnated as a Synth.


* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: One of the only companions who doesn't give you any crap over committing cannibalism, which is weird considering how moral he is otherwise. (The other one who's ambivalent about it is Curie, who duly points out that some rare diseases can be caught that way but isn't really disgusted).

* BadassNormal: He was designed as a general-purpose worker/Manservant and thus lacks dedicated weaponry or combat programming ([[SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaids flamethrower notwithstanding]]). He's just as capable in a scrap as you are.

* SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaid: Mister Handy robots are just supposed to assist in basic domestic work, like cleaning and yard care. And yet he came factory-equipped with a flamethrower. Right out of the box he's a very capable fighter, and this can be further upgraded to insane levels with the Automatron DLC, but he'll still retain his default behavior of trimming the bushes even if he's now packing [[BeamSpam Gatling Lasers]].

* RagnarokProofing: A testament to General Atomics engineering. Despite over 200 years, he still has all three eye stalks, all three arms, all his casing panels, and hasn't gone [[AIIsACrapshoot haywire]].

* NiceGuy: Aside from Piper, he's one of the nicest people you'll meet in the Wasteland. The quickest way to get on his good side is to take missions that help people; he only started charging for his detective services once he got too many missing persons requests to keep up with that ''and'' being a handyman.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: One of the things he'll say if you become overencumbered is "[[Characters/FalloutNewVegasDeadMoney having trouble letting go?]]"


* BrainUploading: His neural patterns are based off of a real, pre-war police officer, which is why he thinks and talks exactly like a human. The Institute trash canned him because he still wasn't human-looking enough on the outside. Nick also suspects the Institute wasn't crazy about him being a moral cop, and wanted a synth that would do their dirty work. [[spoiler:According to his "brother," [=DiMA=], in ''Far Harbor'', Nick wasn't actually "trash canned." Instead, [=DiMA=] helped him to escape but not before the Institute could upload one last "brain" into his body. Disoriented, Nick attacked [=DiMA=], who was forced to incapacitate Nick. Nick awoke an unknown amount of time later with no memory of [=DiMA=] or the incident. Interestingly, [=DiMA=] says that even with new brain uploads, Nick would still think of himself as "Nick"]].

* HelloInsertNameHere: Codsworth is able to address your character by name, provided it's within his list of names. Of course, he will also address you as such terms as "Fuckface" or "Boobies" if you enter that as your name. This also invokes the trope SophisticatedAsHell.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassNormal: In a sense. A good bulk of your companions in The Commonwealth are synths, elite soldiers, robots, mutants, or fighters for hire. Piper is a reporter from the city who can easily stand side-by-side with any of them and hold her own.
