Hayate's most dominant traits are being a Loner and his calm collected and intelligence, Unlike Luffy Hayate, tend to be logical reasonable and careful when dealing various situations and is much more levelheaded and less reckless than Luffy. Hayate prefers to avoiding people affair and would often be a voice of words to Luffy. Hayate mostly presents himself as a calm and collected person being mostly serious calm and clear-minded person.
He rarely shows any signs of distress or anger as shown mostly remain calm and collected in most situations and showed mostly a slight reaction to worst dangerous or bizarre situation with exception of antics of his crewmates. As such, he is much more careful caution and intelligence than Luffy though he is often annoyed by Luffy's Behavior and Recklessness unable to bared Luffy silliness antic or the other crew mate behavior and he loses his temper and snaps at them when annoyed by their actions or words. Hayate is quite perspective and intelligence and is able to see people weakness flaw or something that does not add up and needed to find more reason for people action, for example, he told Luffy that he should not think all pirates are like him and tell Nami that she should not get involve with Vivi when she knows very little what going on. Hayate also considers that possessing a Logia type fruit does not make the user invincible and believe those who believe will meet a swift downfall.
Unlike Luffy, Hayate is cautious with trusting people he maintains a cautious approach toward anyone he considers not trustworthy either due to their connection to an enemy or how they act toward strangers and always maintain caution such as suspecting Charlotte Pudding's motives due to her connection to Big Mom, and he was proven correct along with Pedro when she turns out to have been feigning her kindness and leading them into a trap He also pointed out Vinsmoke Judge's own flaws stated that He has failed to see the flaw of his own decision or action.
Hayate is capable to understand and discerning people personality reasons or action much more clearly and able to discern the reason Robin leaving the crew and deduce that Robin may fear that The Crew might sell her out and instead Sacrifice herself to the World Government so they could leave unharmed and could see the good trait within people.
Despite How he acts Hayate was a kind person Hayate show to have cared for the lives of his crewmate. He was willing to give up something that isn't worth it if it means it would cost people lives and he also doesn't want to see people suffer for no good reason and couldn't just leave them believes that no one had the right make them suffer for no good reason and would risk his life and save a person from suffering.
Hayate has an incredibly strong resolve who will do anything and everything in his power to accomplish something that is important to him without any hesitation after learning Arlong abuse toward Nami Hayate fought and Defeat Arlong and destroy the room that Nami has spent time being forced to drawing maps for Arlong in fact, many people noted that Hayate's Kindness is quite heartwarming perhaps it was very reason why he was able to attract people.
Although despite his collectiveness, however, Hayate is not above doing something reckless when it comes to people he cares about such as attacking a World Noble when they injury Hatchan and fully know the consequences and would even break into Impel Down when he learns that his brother Lang was imprisoned there and is sentenced to execution he even went to Marineford where all-powerful marine was station such as the Admirals just to save Lang from death and rather risk his safety than losing someone who he considers Family.
Hayate is also righteous as he completely despises cruelty and wickedness. When he learned of Arlong's abusive emotional torment towards Nami, he was utterly enraged and wasted no time in destroying the room of maps that Arlong forced Nami to work in for years. When Hatchan was sadistically shot by Sheria and tried to shoot Hatchan again despite Hatchan's attempts to protect him, Hayate's anger reached its peak and was perfectly content to invoke an Admiral's attack by struck Sheria with his sword without any mercy. Hayate's most defining part of his personality is the ability to make allies out of absolutely anyone (including former enemies, villains and even Whitebeard himself), which he has along with Luffy and it is said by Mihawk to be the most dangerous ability in the world.
Hayate is also shown to be flustered and shy around girls tend to be nervous when he is alone with one he unable to handle to look at a girl with revealing clothing such as Nami Mimi and Robin and often blush when they get too close. he tends to be outraged by the Girl choice of outfit but had no problem seeing them wearing a skirt as long it not to short however he can be quite annoyed by Nami and Mimi change clothes in front of everybody. Hayate sometime tends to be blunt such as commenting a person appearance such calling Alvida a fat lady and show disgust when he learns Kokoro was mermaid he is very blunt and is not afraid to speak with his mind.
Hayate is also not easily attracted to any girl by appearance such as being unaffected by Boa Hancock beauty although Hayate was immune to her beauty because he lacks lust and ill intention and also was innocent by nature. However, It is shown that Love is quite a sensitive topic for Hayate whenever he display attraction toward Someone he shows only to be attracted to girl by their interaction with him and inside rather than appearance and show to have much stronger willpower to resist charming or seduction although he doesn't show any romantic interest toward anyone Hayate showed himself to be romantically interested in Nami Yuri and Mimi but shown no interest in girl that is much older than him such as Robin and Hancock an example where he rejects Hancock marriage proposal without second thought.
Hayate as a child was very distant and is much more of a loner than he is currently is now but this Change when he met Linh and opening up to her before he even realizes it. This was due to the fact he lost uncle which traumatize him when the Marines went after him and Hayate Like Ace and Lang seemed to have lifelong problems dealing with his parentage, Hayate is also a very emotional person and lets his emotions control him from time to time.
The deaths of Joe Linh and Lang has greatly affected him and hardly ever listen to reason where He attacks Drayden in rage for vengeance, in particular, Having to grown up Being the Son of Gol D Roger and the World Government has gone after him due to his parentage had a huge effect on his personality and motives, making him very distant from others and has often feel guilty for being responsible for Goku's severe injury he gave him four years ago.
When Hayate fights he usually tends to remain calm and analytical when fighting, however, he becomes incredibly fierce and aggressive. Sometimes, his fierceness is up to the point where he loses control of himself and would sometimes act recklessly regardless he is capable of analyzing every situation and act accordingly and understanding Devil Fruits abilities strengths and weaknesses.
Hayate also had uncontrollable bloodlust whenever someone attacks him or someone enrages him he would attack anyone who enrages him or hurt anyone however he is able to restrain himself when necessary and doesn't involve himself in needless bloodshed. Hayate possesses excellent natural Leadership he often does this in many serious and dangerous situation. Unlike other who held the initial D, Hayate does not, in particular, believe in fate he also claims he does not have a dream in particular but willing help those who had a dream. however, he does share one of the most common traits of those who possess the Initial D is not fearing death.
At First Hayate did not want to become pirate and was trying to find any opportunities to quit but however when he receive his first bounty he was devastated and now find Quitting being an pirate is now impossible he begins to adjust his life as a Pirate Hayate often prefer to avoid people affair however he would meddle if he felt that his crewmate need to meddle with he also consider the well-being of his crew more than anything telling them to run away and fight that they can't win
