Elliot tries to do many things to keep himself awake, such as drinking coffee or poking himself with his sharp claws (a less frequent way he kills other characters). This may work for a certain amount of time until he falls asleep again.
Elliot is known for always wearing striped pyjamas and moving very slowly. He also mostly groans and is frequently seen with a grumpy look on his face, seldom seen with a smile. He rarely dies, and when he does die he often doesn't notice it since he is asleep.
- In Simpsons episodes, he takes place of the Old Jewish Man.
