Joe is characterized by his over-zealousness, machismo, short temper, and by-the-book attitude. He is devoted to his wife Bonnie and son Kevin and takes great pride in his line of work.

Joe's enthusiasm can occasionally go too far into rigid perfectionism, however; he sets high, unreachable standards for himself and others, especially Kevin. He has a domineering relationship with his son, whom he pushes very hard in part to live vicariously through him.
Joe's fearlessness is best exemplified in episodes such as the "Da Boom" wherein, despite being fused to the ground from the waist up as a result of a nuclear explosion, it was implied that Joe was perfectly capable of fighting off a giant mutated rat. "Da Boom" is the Post-apocalyptic tenth episode of the FOX animated series Family Guy.

In addition to Steven Seagal films, Joe also seems to enjoy any number of other macho "shoot-em-up" action movies and martial arts films.
Despite his bravado, Joe may also harbor some insecurity and low self-esteem. He once described to Peter how he gave Kevin a "love tap" punch after Kevin beat him at a game, then beat him until it became a blur. Kevin had to live in foster care for some time after that.

With the exception of their first meeting, Peter often overlooks Joe's paralysis. In "Petarded", Peter misinterprets Joe's use of a wheelchair as a sign of him being mentally retarded rather than handicapped. "Petarded" is the sixth episode of the fourth season of the animated series Family Guy. Even after Joe tells him he is handicapped, Peter says he's just "splitting hairs". In "The Cleveland-Loretta Quagmire", Joe falls into the water, and Peter tells him to kick. When Lois tells him that Joe's a paraplegic, Peter (oblivious to Joe's condition) responds "That doesn't mean he can't hear!"

"Love Thy Trophy" is an episode from the FOX animated series Family Guy. " Similarly, while giving Quagmire good reasons to get a lapdance, he mentions that the others can't as he is married and "Joe is dead from the waist down". Peter is also known to joke about Joe's paralysis as well; in "The Tan Aquatic with Steve Zissou", while the guys are playing golf, Peter asks Joe, "What's your handicap?", to which Joe angrily responds that the joke doesn't get old. "The Tan Aquatic with Steve Zissou" is the eleventh episode of season five of Family Guy, which originally aired on February 18 2007

It should be noted that several other characters in the show have worn adult diapers for the sake of a joke, including Peter, Brian, and Quagmire. It should also be noted that Joe would be unable to use the toilet because he is paralyzed from the waist down, and during events where he was not crippled, no incontinence was implied.
In the episode "Believe It Or Not, Joe's Walking On Air" Joe gets his legs back through an experimental leg transplant, but like most large changes in Family Guy, it is undone by the end of the episode. "Believe It or Not Joe's Walking on Air" is a season six episode of the FOX animated television series Family Guy. Joe makes many changes in his life after the transplant including ditching Peter, Quagmire, and Cleveland for newer, more athletic friends (with very similar names), and leaving Bonnie. Peter, Quagmire and Cleveland decide to break Joe's legs, hoping that it will change his attitude. When Joe returns home, the three are armed with weapons. Joe easily beats them with his newly regained strength. Bonnie then comes out with a gun with the same mission, but her bad aim causes her to shoot Joe in the buttocks, and many more places except Joe's spine, until Joe grabs the gun and decides to finish the job himself.
It is revealed in some episodes that Joe has severe anger issues; whenever he gets extremely agitated or aroused, he always screams at the top of his lungs relating to what tenses him up. For example, in an episode when Lois tells Peter to go to the doctor for a checkup, he instead goes to eat steaks with his friends. Each of the crowd, except for Joe, eat at least two or more, and taunt Joe for not even finishing one. After an onrush of taunting comments, he pulls out his service-issued gun screaming "I SAID I'M NOT HUNGRY!!!" and starts shooting it at the steak, adding "WHERE IS IT NOW, HUH?!!!". Brian calms Joe and pulls the gun away saying, "I'll just put this in your purse next to your tampons. " Another incident of this is in "Sibling Rivalry"; when Cleveland asks if Joe would ever get a vasectomy, Joe shakes Cleveland violently as he screams "NEVER!!!", then smashes Cleveland's head on the table repeatedly. Vasectomy is a surgical procedure in which the vasa deferentia of a man are cut for the purpose of sterilization. In "Road to Rupert", when Joe comes to revoke Peter's driver's license for his failed attempt at jumping multiple civilian cars with the Griffins' family car, Peter teases him by holding his license up in the air where Joe can't reach it; Eventually, Joe screams "YOU'RE STARTING TO PISS ME OFF!!", and whacks Peter in the stomach with his nightstick. Joe also seems to lack sarcasm and always wants to win an argument; when he and Peter trade disagreements over Queen Latifah's actions in her movie Last Holiday in Airport '07 (with Peter saying sarcastically, "Oh no she didn't [fall as she skied]!" and Joe responding, "Oh yes she did!"), Joe ends the conversation by abruptly shouting at Peter "YES SHE DID, PETER! I JUST SAW HER!" prompting Peter to drop the argument. Last Holiday is a 2006 American Comedy film directed by Wayne Wang. "Airport '07" is the twelfth episode of season five of Family Guy. Joe doesn't take handicap jokes very well either; when Peter asks what Joe's handicap is while playing golf, Joe responds (with sarcastic laughter) "OH! EVERY HOLE! THAT'S ONE JOKE THAT JUST DOESN'T GET OLD!". He also gets angry at Christmas time since that was when he was paralyzed; in "A Very Special Family Guy Freaking Christmas" he furiously yells at and breaks several gingerbread men. "A Very Special Family Guy Freakin' Christmas" is the 16th episode of Season 3 of Family Guy, guest starring the members of Kiss ( Gene Simmons It is hinted briefly that Joe takes steroids. A steroid is a Terpenoid Lipid characterized by a Carbon skeleton with four fused rings generally arranged in a 6-6-6-5 fashion However in one episode, while participating in the Special Olympics, he argues against using them (though Peter doses his water).
