* GenderBlenderName[=/=] TomboyishName: Lampshaded by her father, who notes that they were originally expecting a son, [[HeirClubForMen but gave her the name anyway]] once she was born, as they thought of it as unisex-enough and having a bit of RuleOfSymbolism in it (under Murphy's Law, anything could happen - bad ''as well as'' good).

Added DiffLines:

* OnlyOneName: Cooper's first name is never stated during the film. People familiar with him call him, "Coop," instead of being on a first-name basis.


* {{Adorkable}}: Not only during her childhood. Even when she's an adult, this shows up quite often, especially when she's happy or astonished. Her EurekaMoment late in the film stands out in particular.

Added DiffLines:

* TheFaceless: Dr. Mann is this for the first half of the film. When the camera is panning across the portraits of the Lazarus astronauts, it deliberately cuts away before Professor Brandt points out Mann.

* DeterminedHomesteader: Subverted; his refusal to abandon his land, while it makes him an excellent farmer, puts his own family at risk because they're suffering lung damage from living for years in the dust bowl. In the end her sister tries to force the issue by evacuating them herself.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: Helpful and loyal to Murph, and also has a good bedside manner examining her sick nephew.
* OhCrap: When Murph tells him that [[spoiler: Brand had faked his research]].


* [[She'sAllGrownUp He'sAllGrownUp]]: The novelization mentions that Amelia used to babysit him, and she initially thinks a reference to him in one of her father's messages was about his parents (also scientists).
* Main/ShipTease: He's always around Murph and they seem to get along very well. [[spoiler: Murph's BigDamnKiss at the end]] probably helps too and makes the tease stronger.

** Cooper and TARS, whose first meeting involved TARS tasering Cooper and interrogating him, and the two of them getting into each other's faces and threatening each other. Throughout the movie, they warm up to each other while engaging in plenty of SnarkToSnarkCombat, and at the end, [[spoiler:Cooper repairs TARS after their trip into the black hole, and they leave together to Edmunds' planet to find Amelia and CASE]].

* TheQuietOne: CASE, who pretty much only speaks when spoken to or when giving necessary updates/information while piloting the crafts, and probably has the least amount of dialogue of the entire crew (excepting perhaps [[spoiler:Doyle, who died pretty early on in the story]]). When this is lampshaded by Cooper, CASE explains "TARS talks plenty for the both of us."

* StarfishRobots: They have a completely non-humanoid outward appearance, based on [[http://www.robertphoenix.com/content/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/tars14.jpg four simple, interconnected rectangular shapes]]. These shapes are highly modular, especially the outer two rectangles, and can be adjusted by the robots to perform whatever task is needed at that moment. Furthermore, they actually do have a starfish-looking configuration for whenever the robots need to move real quick.
