he was better on TNG. He stood out there. He was unique. On DS9, he was almost a Klingon version of Odo.

DS9 had many more alien characters and outsiders, so Worf didn't stand out as the alien outsider.
I don't know. I think what's remarkable about Worf coming aboard DS9 is that he's very different from other Starfleet officers that might have challenged Odo like Primmin and Eddington. In fact their ability to bond gruffly over their similarities was a wonderful touch to the addition of Worf.

I don't think that's the case at all. I will grant you that the DS9 writers definitely tried to challenge Worf's ideology and even frequently put him on the wrong side of an issue, but I actually think that's an asset to Worf as a character.

But his humor was still there. For example, when asked about the content of Klingon dreams:
