* TheVoiceless: Never speaks, further obfuscating their gender. What sounds they do make are too inhuman to provide hints. Averted in both adaptations; the film version has a line, spoken in Craig Ferguson's distinctive Scottish brogue, and the TV series version is actually quite talkative.
** It's implied that this person can speak at least to Olaf, as it apparently informs Olaf that the orphans stole one of his sailboats.

* RiddleForTheAges: Seriously, whatever happened to this guy?


Added DiffLines:

* ZeroApprovalRating: Other than Esme Squalor and Vice Principal Nero, nobody really seems to like her. Mr. Remora and Mrs. Bass openly suggest that she be expelled.

* BlindWithoutEm: He can't see well without his glasses, which plays heavily into Olaf's plot in ''The Miserable Mill''. He's able to see well enough without them when he gives them to Duncan Quagmire to pose as him or when he and Violet need to disguise themselves. Downplayed in the film where he only needed them for reading.



* VillainousFriendship: It seems that they all truly do enjoy each other's company. They even express sorrow when the person who looks like neither a man nor a woman dies in a fire.



* BadBoss: Frequently yells at his henchmen, calls them idiots and even shows no regard for any of their deaths.



* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Often seen with the Bald Man when all of the henchmen appear together.



* EvilerThanThou: Seems much more needlessly cruel than some of the other associates, especially when compared to the Hook-Handed Man.



* KickTheDog: Though tripping Klaus and breaking his glasses was part of the plan, he didn't need to enjoy it so much.
** Also seen in his disguise as Foreman Flacutono where he treats the mill workers very rudely and poorly.
* SinisterSchnoze: One of his defining traits.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Often seen with the Hook-Handed Man when all of the henchmen are together.

* {{Contortionist}}: Colette works as one in ''The Carnivorous Carnivalí'
* IJustWantToBeNormal: The reason they join Olaf. {{Subverted|Trope}} by the fact that most people do indeed think they're disgusting freaks.
* ProperlyParanoid: Kevin is convinced that everyone is whispering about him all the time, just because he's ambidextrous. There is no reason for people to think there's anything different about him at first glance, but he appears to think there is, even accusing the Baudelaires of coming to Caligari Carnival to laugh at him. As it turns out, most people ''do'' think he's just as freaky as Hugo and Colette.

* DirtyCoward: Her paranoia descends into this trope at the climax of ''The Wide Window.''
* DrivenToSuicide: Subverted with Aunt Josephine. She's forced to write a letter under Olaf's threats and makes it look like she jumped out of a window. However, she just broke the window and made her escape to Curdled Cave.
* GrammarNazi: Her entire schtick. Well, that and paranoia.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She's terrified of, well, absolutely everything. Except caves, it seems; the orphans are able to coax her out of a cave by playing on her fear of realtors, of all things.
