Why He's The Smartest
- The actor Billy Unger is portrayed very well in the series as the main role.
- He is at his best in the first two seasons of Lab Rats.
- Like his siblings, Chase is trained in martial arts.
- To Adam, Bree, and Leo, he's honorable and responsible.
- He has a good brothership with Adam. Since they're brothers, they fight a lot. Adam likes to tease Chase about his height and also punches Chase, whereas Chase teases him about his stupidity.
- These two insult each other a lot, and do get competitive with each other. In Spy Fly, they both sabotaged each other's baby project. But when Adam's baby was trapped, Chase gave in and helped him retrieve it. Besides all the fighting and bickering, they'll be there for each other and help each other out in any way they can.
- They care a lot about each other and will be protective when they have to. For example: in Bionic Showdown Adam gets briefly knocked out by Marcus and Chase comes towards Marcus saying, "No one touches my brother, you freak!" Chase also can be jealous of Adam such as in Avalanche! when he and Bree said speed and strength make a good team, causing Chase to be jealous. In Bionic Action Hero they say that they love each other.
- Chase can create forcefields around himself. As the show progresses, its design changes from a solid blue orb to a transparent half-circle.
- He'll jump into any contest that can prove his superiority, and isn't afraid to cheat to win.
- He's similar to his adoptive father (technically biological uncle) Donald, as both are snarky. A straighter example is him and his actual father, Douglas. Both were picked on by their older brothers, and seek recognition in spite of feeling overshadowed.
- He is loyal to those who get on his good side.
- Although he doesn't have a shirtless scene, his shirt is often unbuttoned a little lower than is necessary, especially in later seasons.
- Because of his passion and neurotic demeanor, he becomes the most dramatic of all the key characters as the show develops.
- While he is a control freak it is revealed eveals why he's like this being mission leader was always a part of him, and it was something that he didn't want to lose.
- Billy Unger has a lot of fangirls. In-universe however, girls almost never ask Chase out. One episode of Elite Force features him making a series of attempts at creating a robot girlfriend and all of them preferring Kaz. However, in "Spike Fright" Sabrina expresses interest in going out with him, and Caitlin had a crush on him.
- Spike (Chase alter ego) loves to break stuff. He can break anything with his head and it doesn't even hurt.
- Spike has a sadistic and mean sense of humor.
- Well, not exactly evil, but Spike is far more anti-heroic.
- Although he went downhill in seasons 3 and 4 and the first half of elite force he was at his best in "Follow the leader", due to he abolishes the Mission Leader title he gets much, much kinder.
- He was flanderized in the last two seasons of the show and in Lab Ratsː Elite Force. He went from an uptight Control Freak with a golden heart to a short-tempered, arrogant, and power-hungry perfectionist.
- His screaming is annoying.
- He wants things done his way, not anyone else's.
- He's always picked on for his inability to get girls or for being short. By Elite Force, he gets more respect, but at Oliver's expense.
- He never misses an opportunity to remind others that he's the "smartest man on Earth".
- As the show progresses, he becomes the most dramatic of all the main characters due to his intensity and neurotic personality.
- In keeping with his Insufferable Genius traits, Chase hardly ever admits to making mistakes, instead blaming others for not following his orders correctly. When he does make a mistake and actually owns up to it, it stays with him.
