    • GOOD
      • When asked where his ship is, he says they are survivors of a terrible shipwreck; Cyclops will not think of looking for them

      • Uses the wine brought as a gift to sent the giant to sleep
      • His men hide under the sheep, clever because they can escape

      • Calls himself Nobody. When Polyphemus asks who killed him he says "Nobody"
    • BAD
      • When Polyphemus asks who harmed him he says his name is Odysseus; this will lead to him having a bad reputation.
      • Putting his men into danger by going in the Cyclops cave as there is no need to go
      • Odysseus is only putting his men into danger because he wants gifts
  • Asks his men to swear an oath they will not eat the cattle
