Added DiffLines:

* MotorMouth: Even when compared to the other motor mouths on this show (such as Ricky), J-Roc stands out.

Added DiffLines:

* SitcomArchNemesis: Ricky '''really''' hates squirrels.


* MayDecemberRomance: He's clearly quite a bit older than Randy. (The age difference between the actors playing them is over twenty years, and there's no evidence to suggest that the same isn't true for their characters.)



* MayDecemberRomance: With Ricky in Season 4, but it dissolves completely when Ricky is sent to jail (again).


* FamilyMan: Ricky has many, ''many'' faults, but he does love his family unconditionally and wants to provide for them.



%%* GeniusDitz

to:

%%* GeniusDitz* GeniusDitz: Easily one of the dumber characters in the show, he's tremendous at dealing with the authorities and of course, growing dope.



%%* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy

to:

%%* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Ricky never hits anyone with his shots, likely due to decades of substance abuse. Of course, Ricky ''himself'' tends to get shot '''a lot''', an interesting variant of this trope.



* MissingMom: His mom, Tammy. [[spoiler:Apparently, she left to avoid anyone finding out that '''''Lahey''''' is Ricky's real father.]]

* TheQuietOne: They barely say a word in season 12.




to:

** They do return very briefly as Tommy Bean's lackeys in season 12.

Added DiffLines:

* BeardofSorrow: Julian's beard in season 11 is much bigger and fuller while he [[spoiler: is living in a storage unit poaching lobsters.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoStoic: When he's hit rock bottom and drinking swish he's clearly off his rocker. When Bubbles sets his mountain lion free, Julian and Ricky are clearly moved to tears despite denying it.

%%* SycophanticServant and TheRenfield: Cory is much more willing to throw his weight behind the boys without question, whereas Trevor will occasionally question their authority and Jacob is more apprehensive. Cory getting arrested while acting as Ricky's double is one of his highlights. He will occasionally object to his treatment, such as calling the boys fucked when they push him and Trevor into (supposedly) leech infested water.
%%* ThoseTwoGuys: With Trevor, to the point where the two barely function without one another. Later settles back into this with Jacob, which works slightly better for him in the long run as Jacob is both respected more by Ricky and has some semblance of common sense.

%%* DarkIsNotEvil: Depends on which side you're on while defining "evil", but Julian has no ill intentions for anyone when entering a situation.
%%* EveryoneHasStandards: Doesn't allow stealing from people in the park or especially from kids. He was also disgusted with Ricky using children to help steal barbecues.
%%* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Particularly Mr. Lahey.

* GeniusBruiser: Julian is an avid reader and the thinker of the crew. He's also by ''far'' the most physically imposing member of the trio, strong enough to easily carry both Corey and Trevor on his shoulders.

* AnachronismStew: Has a pompadour even though it's the 21st century. This combined with his houndstooth shirt, leather jacket, and low top Doc Martens (when not in a pair of Adidas) give off a very rockabilly vibe as well.

* CostumePorn: Ricky's taste in shirts in impeccable.

* CostumePorn: Ricky's taste in shirts in impeccable.and sneakers is impeccable.


Added DiffLines:

* LimitedWardrobe: Subverted. The first two seasons only have him wearing the same 3-5 shirts, and in season 5 he only wears his houndstooth shirt, but he in fact has at least 30 unique shirts throughout the series. Played straight with his tear away track pants, which seem to be his only pair until season 9 or 10 when he gets a few more pairs.

* ViltriolicBestBuds: In his InsaneTrollLogic, Ricky sees himself as as best friend to Cory and Trevor and seems taken aback when people ask why he's so mean to them, implying he may see his genuine cruelty to the boys as this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* IfIDoNotReturn: Cries out to the boys to tell his mom he loves her when he's shot by Lahey, mere seconds before they find out his hand was barely grazed by the bullet.

* DitzyGenius: On very, very rare occasions. In season 8, Cory snaps the valve off of Bubbles' hash oil rig, so he and Jacob use a container with a some maple syrup in it, leading to the best tasting oil Ricky has ever had. In season 10, Cory uses his toothpick to pick a lock filled with wood, which he says acts as a "wood magnet". It works.

He later helps Ricky build a "canapult" that he'd learned about in history class on the Shitmobile to hurl piss jugs into the park.
