Profile

Appearance

Darryl is quite short at his height of 4'2", being in seventh grade and only being slightly taller than Louise and Regular Sized Rudy who are in fourth grade. Darryl wears browline glasses, a white t-shirt, a golden brown puffer vest, green shorts and light brown shoes.

Darryl appears to be Indian, but the closest his race ever comes to being mentioned is when Bob questions it musingly while high on painkillers in "Burgerboss".

Personality

He dislikes being called a "nerd," mainly due to Tyler, his bully, often making fun of him. He has several phobias including spiders and slight claustrophobia. He is very knowledgeable about video games and loves to spend his time in several arcades around town.

Hobbies & Interests

Video Games

Darryl is a self-described video game enthusiast. He has registered high scores on arcade games at Family Funtime and in the arcade at Spare Change Lanes.

Music

In Season 5, Darryl is shown to have a great interest in singing. In "Can't Buy Me Math", he sings a song for Tina at the Seventh/Eighth grade 'Cupids Couple' competition. In "The Itty Bitty Ditty Committee", he joins the eponymous band as their vocalist after they hear him singing Hall and Oates' Maneater in the computer lab. He is also a member of the Hormone-iums, an acapella vocal group.

Others

Darryl also likes math, comic books, robots and going to the science museum. He also appears to have voyeuristic intentions as he owns a telescope which he uses to spy on his elderly neighbor across the street and he also followed Tammy & Jocelyn to the "Zany Plane" ride at Wonder Wharf in "Stand By Gene".

Relationships

In "Can't Buy Me Math", he is shown to have a crush on eighth grade student, Rosa Batista. To get closer to her, he and Tina enter as 'Cupid's Couple' at the Valentine's dance after Michael Carlish, a seventh grade student later went out with Jenny Testa, an eighth grade student after entering cupid's couple with Tracy Schwartz. The plan works but Tina is later shown to have feelings for Darryl after their staged breakup. She later drops the bombshell about their staged romance to Rosa and she leaves him, but they later make up over the video game, Moats. Rosa is never seen again and Darryl & Tina are never again romantic despite his recurring role.
