* NotSoDifferent: To Jeffrey Sr.; temper-wise when she smashed "Uncle" George's wine bottle, blaming Jesse for making her angry, and showing favoritism towards Jeffrey Jr as well as to her own son. As well as assuming that Jesse is the manipulator.
** In addition to the above, during Jesse's third exile, she's shown herself to the point of destroying other people's property. Including Jesse's and Uncle Larry's. Cementing herself as the DarkChick.

* EnemyMine: While still antagonistic by nature, in "REAP WHAT YOU SOW," he learns a vague concept of what YouTube is and that Jesse gets paid for it. Even if his reasons are largely personal for it, you can tell that he WANTS Jesse to be telling the truth that he can make good money off videos and to be able to finally make his dad understand it.

* GainingTheWillToKill: As of Psycho Dad Demolishes Gaming Room, his determination to make Jesse get a job has come to this after hearing that he left the McCann Farm since he doesn't care that he almost killed Jesse and Corn when he backhoed the walls. Many are now convinced he sees Jesse as nothing more than an embarrassment to the family name, and that he wants to kill Jesse to be rid of him and his Millennial ways; as a result, some viewers now believe that Jesse's only options are to either call the police or commit patricide, as there's absolutely no helping him at all.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: On the other hand, Jeffery has showed a little bit of this at times. A prime example is when he took two UsefulNotes/{{PS4}}'s and an UsefulNotes/XboxOne from Jesse's room to keep for himself after Jesse and Uncle Larry destroyed his [=PS4=], only to find out they were for fans as part of a giveaway. Not only did he instantly gave them back, but he also made a video apologizing to Jesse's fans. Not to mention later on him and Jesse are shown on ''somewhat'' good terms.

* OnlySaneMan: After [[TookALevelInKindness Taking A Level In Kindness]], he pretty much has became this.
* ParentalFavoritism: On the receiving end, at least from his dad. He's allowed to stay in the house rent free, has two rooms, and is hardly ever punished for anything. In the rare event that he ''is'' punished, it's guaranteed to be lighter than anything Jesse gets. However, his dad ''did'' smash his expensive camera when he found out that he smashed the trophies and framed Jesse for it.

* TheDreaded: With little patience and an anger like a Bull, Jeffrey Sr is '''NOT''' a man to play around with especially when it comes to material possessions. In fact everyone who knows him, dare not speak ill-will of him in his presence unless its an argument they seek or their stuff demolished.

* GreaterScopeVillain: While Melissa and later Uncle Chris are the BigBad in recent videos and his wife Terry taking up TheDragon mantle, Jeffrey Sr still trumps all of them as the Bigger Bad of the entire Psycho Series. Demonstrated in "AUNT MELISSA FIGHTS PSYCHO DAD", in which he effortlessly tosses her into a christmas tree and forces a brief EnemyMine between Melissa, Terry, and Jesse. He is also the reason Jesse has gone off to work with Uncle Chris. Jesse freaks out when Uncle Chris [[SummonBiggerFish threatens to call him, and then actually does call him over to the farm]] in "LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON".

** Particularly extreme example: [[spoiler:In "Psycho Kid Kills Father", he seems as if he's finally going to apologize to Jesse for all of the abuse he put him through, but then says that he's only sorry because he introduced video games to Jesse and they turned him into who he is now. Jesse refuses to believe this, knowing in his heart that his dad is the real reason, and finally decides to kill him]].

* UngratefulBastard: Never seems to appreciates anything nice that Jesse does for him. For example; How does Jeffrey Sr. reacts when Jesse gifts him a new grill, complains about the number of burners and belittles Jesse about it.
** Another example is when Jesse finally gets a Job in Uncle Larry's Canvas Shop. Tells his father about it in "FORCED RESIGNATION!", what's his father's reaction? Demands that Jesse quits his job or that there will be [[KickTheDog consequences]]. [[{{Hypocrite}} Despite telling Jesse, and Jesse himself agreeing with his father to get a job by the end of March]]. Jeffrey brought up his concerns of being coddled by Terry and Uncle Larry as well as his education should be put to better use. Granted that [[TheExtremistWasRight Jeffrey is right that Jesse should get a better job due because of his education]], What Jeffrey Sr. doesn't understand is that it's common for people to still continue to job search for a better job while still employed in a job below their skillset/education. Especially with the employment prospects of Jesse's generation in [[TheNewTens the post Great Recession]] world. At it's core, Jeffrey's issue largely revolves around, to an extent, Jesse being coddled at work by his family members, as well as with pay, as some viewers theorize Jeffrey wants Jesse to get a high-paying job so he can retire and sponge off his own son.
** Yet again, he demonstrates this with Jesse trying to spend quality time with him playing video games. After constantly being killed in a Halo multiplayer game; he RageQuit in a extreme way. By taking Jesse's Xbox One and shooting it out in the backyard. Blaming Jesse that he embarrassed him. Even Jesse [[CallingTheOldManOut called him out on his actions calling him a big baby and "super immature" for rage quit]].
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Ultimately, Jeffrey Sr. just wants what's best for Jesse, but has a very twisted idea about it based on his Baby Boomer upbringing. The fact of the matter is that he just doesn't understand the Millennials, and even makes it a point to force his outdated ways on his sons.

** He finally lost it when Jeffrey Sr. destroyed his RV and basically began controlling every aspect of Jesse's life, to the point that he used his truck to conduct a kamikaze attack on the Ridgways' pool. Investigation by users shows that Larry was ''aiming for Jeff and trying to run him down'', as if murder is the only option.

** Zigged-Zagged in Jesse's vlog "[[NotSoDifferent NOT MUCH DIFFERENT!]] where she opens up to Jesse after Uncle George's negative reaction with Psycho Dad's destruction and siding with him. The big badness is part of a JerkassFacade. After the heart-to-heart talk, had a case of an IgnoredEpiphany and [[FaceHeelTurn reverted back]] to her old JerkAss self.
** During Jesse's third exile, she's pretty much taken up the "Psycho" mantel and willing to go at lengths to destroy other people's property. One noteable example is when she found out Jesse is living on her property, she imediately taken to Jeffrey Sr.'s level of destruction and destroyed both the mirror in Uncle Larry's RV, dented the microwave, and destroyed Jesse's TV.

* NotBloodSiblings: Dispite being called an aunt, she's not related to neater the Abraham Family nor the Ridgeway Family. The title was applied since she's a close friend to Terri.

* NotSoDifferent: To Jeffrey Sr.; temper-wise when she smashed "Uncle" George's wine bottle, blaming Jesse for making her angry, and showing favoratism towards Jeffrey Jr as well as to her own son. As well as assuming that Jesse is the manipulator.

* TheCorrupter: In "THE DIVORCE PAPERS!", we see the far-reaching consequences of Melissa's influence on Terri. In a nutshell: Terri has become a Melissa clone, with a wild haircut and StrawFeminist tendancies (to the point a few viewers likened her to a Tumblr feminist).

** Did this in RealLife near the very end of the Psycho Series, apparently due to Jesse not paying him enough and making him feel like he was unappreciated for his work.

** JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Although he ''does'' display something of an altruistic side at times, and even has a few EvenEvilHasStandards moments, he ultimately subverts the JerkWithAHeartOfGold trope. In the earlier videos, his methods were excessive, but it was evident that he was ultimately well-meaning. However, as the series goes on, he gets more and more irredeemable (such as when he demolished Jesse's gaming room knowing that he and Corn were in there at the time, or when he forbade Jesse from filming anywhere except for a small closet).
