* CharactisationClickMoment: He started off in the pilot as a slightly nicer, more flamboyant version of the movie Hawkeye, but got more traits of his own as the series progressed (NoSenseOfPersonalSpace in Requiem For A Lightweight, self righteousness in The Moose, subbiness in Edwina etc), and clicked as Our Boy With The GuiltComplex in Sometimes You Hear The Bullet.

Added DiffLines:

* AbusiveDad: Her dad does love her, but has also made her feel like she’s been nothing but a disappointment and his neglect is hinted to be why she goes for high ranking men so often.

Added DiffLines:

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He sees that Hawkeye is hurting about something and immediately wants to help, he gets Hawkeye’s references (who does a DoubleTake and immediately pays more attention to him, which gets an affectionately smug grin), and takes Hawkeye’s lunacy in complete stride. [[BerserkButton Except when it’s hating himself about missing Trapper.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NaiveNewcomer: At the start, who Hawkeye is delighted to show off to, but also show how much of a messed up situation (both physically coming into Korea, and dealing with Hawkeye’s self loathing over missing Trapper) he’s got himself into. He has a quick TraumaCongaLine on his first day that dissuades any naivety, and the bus scene in ''Late Captain Pierce'' is as much him choosing to stay and help as it is Hawkeye’s.

** [[spoiler:BusCrash[=/=]KilledOffscreen: It's revealed that his homebound plane was shot down with no survivors. One of the classic examples of the trope, to the point where it was formerly called "[[PersonAsVerb McLeaned]]" on this very wiki.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AmazonChaser: Emphasis on the chasing. He’s into Meg Cratty when she calls out generals (if she were twenty years younger she’d go for it), knows what pegging is and partakes in it during Tokyo trips, wants Margaret to kick him in high heels, but it needs to be his idea. When Inga gently pushes him down on the bed he gets weird, but learns his lesson by the end.


* CharacterizationMarchesOn: As noted above, he's a lot more sly, devious and worldly in the early seasons, including stealing Colonel Blake's brandy and cigars, but he becomes more childlike and innocent after Colonel Potter joins the cast, losing his taste for smoking and drinking anything other than soft drinks.

* MissingMom: Although Hawkeye's mother is [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness referenced in a couple very early episodes]], his father is eventually established as a widower. Similarly, Hawkeye goes from having a sister in season 1 to being an [[OnlyChildSyndrome only child]].

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: The CharacterDevelopment way, and pushed on by Mike Farrell. While he never loses core decency and has plenty of reasons to be depressed, he went from a HappilyMarried NaiveNewcomer to a CrazyJealousGuy (to Peg ''and'' Hawkeye), a ManipulativeBastard whenever he got bored and regularly played MiseryPoker.


* DeathBySex: He dies of a heart attack while having a "visit" with Margaret in her tent.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* ItRunsInTheFamily: Eleven seasons of being called bi in every form except the word itself, and he mentions an unmarried sheep farmer (all used as code for being gay) uncle who lives in Suffolk.
