* FragileFlower: Luckily he mixes this with more {{Hotblooded}} tropes, but he breaks down in tears often for no reason. The ''WebVideo/HonestTrailers'' parody in ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes'' calls him a crybaby.

* InnocentFanserviceBoy: Deconstructed. He likes teasing his audience and bragging about how cute he is, but he has no idea what he's doing in the real world. As examples, the skirt in ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'', drinking with [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] when he's a complete lightweight and getting a stalker partner when he was a teenager.

* JerkassFacade: Not that he isn't a genuine dick, but coupled with SympatheticPOV, there's no indication that the other characters know what we know about him. Or that he'd be willing to tell them.
** Confirmed in ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'', as when he's either forced or just lets the facade drop, characters not known for their empathy (like Chick or Phelous) become more gentle with him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He fiercely protects kids but has no patience for annoying dogs, he trashes other people's nostalgia but can't make it through ''Follow That Bird'' without {{squee}}ing, he's demanding of Chester but is the only one to give him money and a place to stay, he's a bastard to people but is so very loyal to the ones he cares about, he has a temper but heartwarming moments come regularly... let's just say this guy can get complicated.
** His review of ''Film/IllBeHomeForChristmas'' shows that in a stark contrast to D-Bag, he genuinely cares about the people in his life like Santa Christ and Chester. It's especially heartwarming with the latter since he threatened him to hurt him if he didn't make another Bum Review and yet in the end, he tells him to take his time. He also decides to let him and his fiancée stay in his house.

** He treats the abuse kids, Melody and Cliff, really badly in ''Monkeybone'', but when he finds out their parents are Aunt Despair and Uncle Lies, he connects the dots and feels bad.

** He treats the abuse kids, Melody and Cliff, really badly in ''Monkeybone'', but when he finds out their parents are Aunt Despair and Uncle Lies, he connects the dots and feels bad. He makes it up to them in ''Film/HomeAlone 2'' and when his anxiety explodes after trying to keep the peace and getting his cereal mocked, scaring them, he’s horrified with himself for “ruining everything”. Luckily for him the other adults tell him [[PetTheDog it’s alright]].


** Before his character cemented and he had plenty of gay moments himself, his early episodes are pretty bad with this, like when he complains at the end of ''Series/PowerRangers'' about “why is the [robot] so gay?”

** After years of being [[HoYay/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses very]] [[http://blip.tv/nostalgiacritic/nostalgia-critic-the-haunting-5634970 very]] ''[[WebVideo/DemoReel very]]'' queer-friendly, all the reboot's talk of putting dicks into women, making women pregnant and [[{{hypocrite}} mocking femmy guys]], comes off as trying way too hard.

** In ''Film/TheOddLifeOfTimothyGreen'' and the ''{{Twilight}}'' editorial, he makes rants about learning from your mistakes and growing up. The irony that this comes after ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'' but he's back to screaming and having psychotic breaks like he did years ago has not been lost on people.

** Also, the Critic's "mourning" of ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' a la ''{{Hamlet}}'' seems to have him rather depressed.

* InVinoVeritas: Phelous and Snob get pretty shocked when they see him vulnerably hanging onto The Other Guy and totally wasted in their "Troll 4" review. We aren't, [[JerkassFacade because we've seen it before]].

* JadedWashout: Best summed up here:
-->'''Critic:''' Look at you, you had such dreams ahead of you, such promise, you were perfect back then -- okay you had stupid glasses, teeth like a chipmunk and a dumb and dumber haircut that only got dumb and dumber -- but you had such hope.

* ItsAWonderfulPlot: A Christmass special has this PlayedForLaughs. Everyone would be ridiculously better of without him, including the Angel showing him this, which understandably makes him very bitter. However when you think about it, there's a huge ammount of FridgeHorror that he's a BarrierMaiden for by existing: Cinema Snob is reduced to being a porn character, Linkara is a drunk who's drawing Marvel and DC comics back by refusing to make movies, Angry Joe is a PresidentEvil who '''[[MoralEventHorizon blows the entire Canada sky high]]''', Spoony completely loses his show to take on the Critic's and can't do it right at all, not to mention the Critic's lack of help against threats like [[MadScientist Dr. Insano]] or [[EldritchAbomination the Entity]].

* CriminalAmnesiac: The Reloaded reviews have him constantly attack himself for being "too gay", the friends that had helped him atone in WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee, make racist comments towards Ma-Ti and not care one bit about said planeteer's death.

* [[SheCleansUpNicely He Cleans Up Nicely]]: In the Chick's ''Worst Witch'' review, despite the ridiculous wig, he manages to pull off an all-white suit quite impressively. Chick gets a little annoyed by how Elisa and Nella suddenly fangirl over him when he arrives.

* [[FemaleMisogynist Male Misandrist]]: Oddly (given what [[StrawFeminist she's]] [[DoesNotLikeMen like]]), he's complained more about MaleGaze, the standard [[NobleMaleRoguishMale stereotypes]], the WhiteMaleLead trend and apparent "what about teh menz" feelings in movies more than the Chick ever has.
