* TheSouthpaw: I'm left-handed. At first I thought that made me weird, but then I realised it doesn't.


* HiddenDepths : In 'Superhero Worship', it's revealed I've a knack for engineering; my design for a mice labyrinth (required for a school project/contest) was so good that its photo and blueprints appeared in a specialized magazine, and one year later, when helping Tommy do his own labyrinth for the same project, we won first place. Later, in 'Brothers' Grimm', this ability is referenced again, as I make the blueprints for a treehouse, having professional-like quality.

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: While I've gotten over most of my childhood fears (even my fear of ''Angelica!''), I never quite got over my fear of clowns. [[note]] Don't worry, little me, they still won't be ''that'' scary anymore, and yeah, that guy on the oatmeal box [[UncannyValley never did really look right]].[[/note]]

* NatureTinkling: When I was learning to use the grown-ups' potty, I was worried about being watched, so I decided to go on a tree, but that wasn't allowed. I thought that Spike was part of the rules too so we tried to potty-train him, but then he wented on the tree again and they didn't mind, so I decided they'd changed the rules again and peed on the tree.

Preteen!Chuckie: You said it.



** A similar case in 'Dude, Where's My Horse?", when I finds out I'm an extremely good cowboy, but then I feel bad when remembering these abilities are useless back at home... and then I start playing a harmonica with remarkable skill. Even Tommy can't make me confess at what point I learned to play an instrument, as I've apparently learned to do it almost without realizing it.

* NeatFreak: I like having my blocks put away, and stacked big to small. Tommy finds that annoying, so sorry, Tommy.

* ShowerShy: An episode has me trying to avoid having to shower in gym class, until one of my attempts to do so gets me stranded outside the locker room with no clothes or towel. At the end of the episode I finally overcomes my fear.

* NerdGlasses: He wouldn't be Chuckie without 'em, you know.

!!Tropes about big me
* AnimeHair: Especially during my "Yu-Gotta-Go!" dream sequences.
* BadLiar: Angelica basically has to drill me in how to be an effective liar in "Brother, Can You Spare the Time?". How does she do it?
* BerserkButton: I'll go absolutely paranoid if I think Kimi is in danger.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Kimi, who doesn't always appreciate it. (See BerserkButton above.)
* BigBrotherMentor / OlderAndWiser: I have an odd role when it comes to wisdom: most of the time I'm nebbish and insecure, but when the moment comes for it. I'm also often the guy who picks up on my friends' sensitive/emotional problems and gives wise speeches to members of the gang, most often to Tommy and Kimi. Occasionally I'm the "lesson giver" when Susie's not around.
** This leads to a RunningGag where I give some insightful advice, and then I admit that got it out of a fortune cookie / hallmark card.
** Funnily enough, while I often fill this role for Tommy, Tommy often fills this role for me. It's a cornerstone of our friendship. In fact, a couple of the speeches I give to Tommy are of the "teaching a lesson that Tommy didn't realize I was already inspiring in other people" sort.
* BlindWithoutEm : Not as bad as in the original series. I actually removes my glasses at times to read fine print.
* ButtMonkey: Even more so in this series. One episode even finds me completely naked on school grounds, save for a guitar.
* ContinuityNod: The circus camp episode reveals that even after all these years, I'm still terrified of clowns.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass : [[note]]Don't look at that last one, little me![[/note]]I often displays abilities that end saving the day, and when facing my fears I actually can prove myself to be a quite competent leader and hero. Unfortunately, many of my abilities only work in very specific circumstances, a constant source of frustration for me.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Tommy, of course, and even gets jealous if anybody threatens to take my place as his best friend.
* HiddenDepths : In 'Superhero Worship', it's revealed I've a knack for engineering; my design for a mice labyrinth (required for a school project/contest) was so good that its photo and blueprints appeared in a specialized magazine, and one year later, when helping Tommy do his own labyrinth for the same project, we won first place.

-->'''Chuckie:''' See? I'm VANILLA! Crustless, ''vanilla'' Finster.

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: While I've gotten over most of my childhood fears (even my fear of ''Angelica!''), I never quite got over my fear of clowns.
