* DoubleKnockout: [[spoiler: In the American version of the final episode, Cameron's final attack hits Lightning, but drains his power suit of its last bits of power and he falls over. A severely dazed and discolored haired Lightning falls over on top of Cam a moment later, earning him the 3 count pin and the victory, More or less the same thing happens in the Canadian and the iTunes version of the ending, except that the order of who falls on who is reversed.]].

* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Was highly upset when he found out his dad bet his gold rings on him and was even more upset when he lost in the canon ending (Canada and iTunes).

* StaticCharacter: Come ''All-Stars'' where his only identifiable character trait from the previous season to be retained here is "Dumb farm boy".


* StoryBreakerPower: Probably the real-life reason for his early elimination. With his ability to MacGuyver anything he wants with ridiculous precision, most challenges probably would’ve become a breeze for him and he would’ve had an unfair advantage over the other contestants. The writers probably had him leave early on because of this.



* StoryBreakerPower: Her [[spoiler: mutant form. With it, she gains super strength and she grows immensely in size. The writers probably had her voted off the island the same episode she mutated because they realized that Mutant Dakota was too strong and would’ve easily won many of the future challenges.]]



* StoryBreakerPower: Probably the real-life reason for her [[DeusExitMachina relatively early elimination]]. With her ability to communicate with animals and the fact that [[Ninja she can be really stealthy when she wants to be]], she has an unfair advantage over other contestants and a lot of the challenges would become really easy for her. The writers probably realized this early on and decided to give her the boot because of it.

Added DiffLines:

* BookDumb: He doesn't show much intelligence, aside from his skills in manipulation.


* TookALevelInJerkass: For most of the season, he is just a DumbJock. However, when Cameron took immunity instead of him in episode 11, he's [[{{Understatement}} rather bitter]] (even though it was his own fault for showing off before then). While his personality doesn't really change, he's notably more antagonistic towards Cameron and Zoey, and effectively replaces Scott as the villain near the end of the season. He's mostly back to his prior levels of antagonism during his run on ''All Stars''.

* AttentionWhore: Played with. It is exaggerated because Dakota has her own paparazzi entourage and will resort to anything to get her own reality series, yet it is also deconstructed because Dawn states that Dakota's need for fame is really a repressed cry for love.

* SuperReflexes: He claims that 10 years of video gaming have given him these. He demonstrates by grabbing a piece of cheese from a MouseTrap without setting it off; however, he unwittingly set off about a dozen additional traps when he stepped on the trap he'd just undone, claiming that his gaming withdrawal is throwing him off balance.

* {{Foil}}: To Tyler, especially if one takes Tyler's online bio into account. Both are [[{{Determinator}} determined]] athletes who are very confident in their abilities, and tend to be TheDitz (although Lightning more so than Tyler). Additionally, it’s implied both also [[LikeFatherLikeSon get their sports-driven natures from their fathers]] (as Tyler’s online bio reveals his father is a sportscaster while Lightning’s father owns five championship rings). But unlike Tyler who often [[SmallNameBigEgo overestimates what he’s capable of]], Lightning backs up his claims and excels in anything physical. While Tyler is a LovableJock who’s unfailingly loyal to those he cares about, Lightning is something of a JerkJock who usually prioritizes winning over others. While Tyler has his fair share of misfortune and brushes aside losing quite easily, Lightning is a SoreLoser to the point where it makes him undergo a FaceHeelTurn. And finally, it is implied Tyler has a good relationship with his father, seeing as how he gets all his sports gear from him, while Lightning has a strained relationship with his father, who ignores him [[WellDoneSonGuy unless he succeeds in every competition he participates in]].
