* YourCheatingHeart: As Gavin discovers, Green's wife is having an affair.



* YourCheatingHeart: He's the 'other man' in an ongoing affair with Claire Underwood.


* BlackBestFriend: He might be one of Frank's best and most genuine friends. Played with in Season 3. Freddy admits to Remy that his friendly behavior towards Frank is mostly an act, and he even admits that he used to hide all the time in the kitchen back when he had his restaurant. And he took the landscaping job at the White House to keep his distance from Frank. Subverted in Season 4. [[spoiler: Freddy tells Frank how much he really disliked him all along. And he makes it clear to Tom Hammerschmidt after beating him up that he hates Frank Underwood.]]


* BiTheWay: She starts a same sex relationship with a woman named Lisa in the second season.



* BiTheWay: He's implied to be HappilyMarried, but had a sexual relationship with Frank in college.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSpock: Tusk - from his very first appearance - is a very remote and unemotional thinker. As he tells Frank in their first parlay, decisions based on emotion aren't decisions, but rather instincts.


* KickTheDog: His most viscerally blatant act of evil is when he casually crushes one of his pet birds in his hand.

Added DiffLines:

* FaceDeathWithDignity: Goes out like a badass. A guy has a gun to the back of the head and he still keeps his composure enough to attach a thumb drive to his dog’s collar.


* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: He claims not to trust any white man, in those exact words, particularly those who work in the White House. However, given that he's dealing with Frank Underwood, and the [[{{Understatement}} strenuous]] historical relationship between Native American communities and the US Government, [[JerkassHasAPoint it's hard not to see why.]]

* FirstNameBasis: He addresses President Walker as 'Garrett' instead of 'Mr. President' as a mark of how he doesn't actually respect him. After Walker grows a spine later on, Tusk switches to 'Mr. President, albeit reluctantly.
