!!Peter Beale (Ben Hardy, previously: Francis Britton-Snell, Alex Stevens, Joseph Shade, James Martin, Thomas Law)
* AmbiguouslyBi: For some reason a lot of fans think the character might be gay. This is despite him having at least 4 on-screen romantic interests
* BigNo: [[spoiler:When he learns his twin sister, Lucy, has died, he breaks down screaming in his father's arms]]
* BigBrotherInstinct: Even though Lucy is his twin sister, he would look out for her as much as he could and did feel super guilty for leaving her behind when Ian had his mental breakdown. [[spoiler: He even began supplying Lucy with drugs to help control her addiction, only to become addicted himself. He is devastated when she dies]]. He's also very protective of younger brother, Bobby and to a lesser extent, Cindy.
* BreakTheCutie: since [[spoiler:Lucy's death]] he's been trying to stay strong for everyone, but it's clear he's keeping his emotions private and inside he's falling apart
* CampStraight: When played by Thomas Law. Good lord. Ben Hardy's portrayal is very different.
* DeadGuyJunior: He is named after his deceased grandfather, Pete, who died on the day of his birth.
* DoomMagnet: A serious case could be made. His grandfather died on the day of his birth, his mother died when he was 5, his elder half-brother ran away from home only to return end up shooting Peter's stepmother and then [[spoiler: his twin sister dies]]. Plus, he was nearly killed in a car crash, was set upon and beaten up by a gangster, as well as being attacked by a peadophile. The guy's had it rough.
* MrFanservice: Since his return as played by Ben Hardy, we've been seeing quite a lot of his very muscular arms. He's also had a shirtless scene
* NiceGuy: Peter's kind and pleasant to pretty much everyone he meets.
* TheOtherDarrin: He been played no less that ''6'' different actors.
* OutOfFocus: When played by Thomas Law, it was very rare that Peter would get any notable story-lines compared to twin sister Lucy. Peter was so underused that in 2009 he only appeared in 29 out of 212 episodes broadcast that year, leaving him the least seen character of the year. He's had more focus in his 2013 return though, becoming a character with a massive storyline in the [[spoiler: Who Killed Lucy Beale? plot]]
* PutOnABus: Was written out between December 2010 and June 2013 when he moved to Devon following an argument with Ian
** Left again in 2015, this time to move to New Zealand with Lauren after finding out who killed Lucy.
* ShirtlessScene: It did at least have some narrative context though

!!Max Branning (Jake Wood)
* AbusiveParents: His father Jim used to punish him through extreme measures.

* DisappearedDad: Max and his abandonment of Bradley when he was young.
* DisproportionateRetribution: He's on the receiving end of this by his family when his affair with Stacey was revealed. How he made it in one piece after being buried alive by his wife and run over by his daughter is unclear.

* {{Hypocrite}}: gets called on it more than her husband...
* IHaveNoSon
* MamaBear: Deep down, from [[WordOfGod Nina Wadia]] herself, Zainab's intense homophobia is fueled partially by her need to protect her son from all the hatred he would receive from the Muslim community. She didn't do a good job of it.

!!Shabnam Masood (currently Rakhee Thakrar, previously Zahra Ahmadi)

Once she returned from Pakistan in 2014: she finally became devoted to Islam, as well as undergoing a personality change with her having a SugarAndIcePersonality.
* TheOtherDarrin: Was originally played by Zahra Ahmadi until she left in 2008. The role was taken by Rakhee Thakrar in 2014 when Shabnam returned to the square

* HonorBeforeReason: Nancy is perhaps the most moral of the Carter family to a fault.[[spoiler: She tells Shirley the truth of what Mick did to Dean in the Vic cellar]]

This can be seen clearly during Nancy's 21st birthday where her party is a little less than exciting, resulting in her mother, Linda going berserk.

!!Aleks Shirovs (Kristian Kiehling)
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent?: Aleks is Latvian. The actor portraying him is German-Latvian.
* SecretRelationship: Aleks left his wife and daughter in Latvia to come to London. His girlfriend, Roxy Mitchell has no idea they exist. They end up turning up in the square, forcing Tamwar Masood to lie to Roxy. Aleks and his wife are still attracted to each other and sleep together in the market office.

!!Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold)
* KissingCousins: Actually a bit more than that; Lola's third cousin Ben is the father of her daughter Lexi.
* TeenPregnancy: Her first storyline involved her finding out she was pregnant at age 15.
* TookALevelInKindness: Though originally hard faced and troublesome, Lola has matured and is now generally quite nice.
** She still has her moments where she panics over her motherhood and does some stupid things, but now she is generally nowhere near as fiery as before and keeps a level head. This is most evident where Bianca doesn't pay her immediately, thinking she talked Morgan and Tiffany out of their staple food.
* MamaBear: Would do anything for her daughter, Lexi. Even attempting to kidnap her when she was threatened by social services.


!!Arthur Chubb 'Fatboy' (Ricky Norwood)
* {{Claustrophobia}}: Revealed when he was locked up by Vincent in a closet overnight. [[spoiler: Horrible end to his life when he got involved in Vincent and Ronnie's Hubbard/Mitchell conflict because he was accidentally locked inside the boot of a car, triggering his fear of closed spaces. Since nobody heard him (except Ronnie but she thought he was Vincent) he eventually suffocated to death, and after that the car got sent to the scrapyard and crushed along with his body inside.]]
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler: You wouldn't expect a PluckyComicRelief like Fatboy to be killed off by being crushed inside a boot of a car...]]
* JiveTurkey
* OddFriendship: As his character profile on the BBC ''[=EastEnders=]'' website states thusly: "You might expect his best mate to be an Asbo-wielding ex-con, but it is in fact bible-bashing octogenarian Dot Branning, who prefers to address him by his real name. She teaches him biblical tracts, he teaches her street lingo. It's a beautiful relationship"
* NiceGuy: Under all that 'street lingo' is a kind hearted young gentleman who willingly stood up against Whitney's pimp Rob Grayson and befriended Dot Branning whom he affectionately calls "Mrs B".
* BewareTheNiceOnes: But don't take him for granted, after he discovered Whitney had cheated on him with Tyler Moon, he hunted Tyler down and punched him to the ground. He also did not take his father's meddling in his best friend Mercy's life well.

!!Peter Beale (Ben Hardy, previously: Francis Britton-Snell, Alex Stevens, Joseph Shade, James Martin, Thomas Law)
* AmbiguouslyBi: For some reason a lot of fans think the character might be gay. This is despite him having at least 4 on-screen romantic interests
* BigNo: [[spoiler:When he learns his twin sister, Lucy, has died, he breaks down screaming in his father's arms]]
* BigBrotherInstinct: Even though Lucy is his twin sister, he would look out for her as much as he could and did feel super guilty for leaving her behind when Ian had his mental breakdown. [[spoiler: He even began supplying Lucy with drugs to help control her addiction, only to become addicted himself. He is devastated when she dies]]. He's also very protective of younger brother, Bobby and to a lesser extent, Cindy.
* BreakTheCutie: since [[spoiler:Lucy's death]] he's been trying to stay strong for everyone, but it's clear he's keeping his emotions private and inside he's falling apart
* CampStraight: When played by Thomas Law. Good lord. Ben Hardy's portrayal is very different.
* DeadGuyJunior: He is named after his deceased grandfather, Pete, who died on the day of his birth.
* DoomMagnet: A serious case could be made. His grandfather died on the day of his birth, his mother died when he was 5, his elder half-brother ran away from home only to return end up shooting Peter's stepmother and then [[spoiler: his twin sister dies]]. Plus, he was nearly killed in a car crash, was set upon and beaten up by a gangster, as well as being attacked by a peadophile. The guy's had it rough.
* MrFanservice: Since his return as played by Ben Hardy, we've been seeing quite a lot of his very muscular arms. He's also had a shirtless scene
* NiceGuy: Peter's kind and pleasant to pretty much everyone he meets.
* TheOtherDarrin: He been played no less that ''6'' different actors.
* OutOfFocus: When played by Thomas Law, it was very rare that Peter would get any notable story-lines compared to twin sister Lucy. Peter was so underused that in 2009 he only appeared in 29 out of 212 episodes broadcast that year, leaving him the least seen character of the year. He's had more focus in his 2013 return though, becoming a character with a massive storyline in the [[spoiler: Who Killed Lucy Beale? plot]]
* PutOnABus: Was written out between December 2010 and June 2013 when he moved to Devon following an argument with Ian
** Left again in 2015, this time to move to New Zealand with Lauren after finding out who killed Lucy.
* ShirtlessScene: It did at least have some narrative context though

!!Stan Carter (Timothy West)
* CoolOldGuy: Oddly so, despite his established abrasive ways Stan gives grandson Dean advice on the lack of common sense regarding an affair the lad was having by telling him leaving texts on his phone from his mistress was an idiotic move but not because he was angry at Dean for having a fling but because he could get and did get found out! And was willing to help Dean sell stolen mobile phones for a cut of the profits, naturally.
* RetiredBadass: Served with the British army in Malaysia during the the time of either the Malayan Emergency or the Communist Insurgency War, relating this to Mick and Lee after Lee relived a traumatic event he witnessed in Afghanistan to him and Mick. Worked as a fishmonger after his brief time in the army.
* {{Jerkass}}: At the table for dinner he openly jokes about the 2 homosexual members of the family but what really sends everyone (Especially Mick) over the edge is he jokes Lee might be one but the next time they see him will be in a body bag coming home from tour in Afghanistan.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Can on occasion show a softer side to his character despite his established {{Jerkass}} ways, he stepped in and comforted his [[spoiler:great-granddaughter]] Nancy after she had a fit and shows real regret over the way he raised Shirley, Mick and Tina and took on [[spoiler:grandson]] Mick as his own son and considers him as such.

!!Aleks Shirovs (Kristian Kiehling)
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent?: Aleks is Latvian. The actor portraying him is German-Latvian.
* SecretRelationship: Aleks left his wife and daughter in Latvia to come to London. His girlfriend, Roxy Mitchell has no idea they exist. They end up turning up in the square, forcing Tamwar Masood to lie to Roxy. Aleks and his wife are still attracted to each other and sleep together in the market office.

This is most evident where Bianca doesn't pay her immediately, thinking she talked Morgan and Tiffany out of their staple food.
* MamaBear: Would do anything for her daughter, Lexi. Even attempting to kidnap her when she was threatened by social services.


!!Charlie Cotton (Declan Bennett)
* DisappearedDad: Originally played straight but later subverted as it becomes clear Nick is aware of Charlie's actions and has played some part in his eldest sons life enough for Charlie to know him and address as 'Dad'.
* DeadGuyJunior: Averted although Charlie is named after his paternal grandfather given he is likely in his early thirties, Charlie Snr was very much alive in Charlie's early life.
* DarkSecret: Implied to be impersonating a policeman and that he knows more about his father, Nick's 'death'. His shady dealings with funeral director, Les Coker imply he's hiding something that could break poor Dot's heart.
* SurprisePregnancy: Was definitely surprised to find he got Ronnie Mitchell pregnant. She turned up at his door, sporting a baby bump. The two look like they may have a potential spark.
* ImpersonatingAnOfficer: Appeared originally to be a Detective Constable however this was not the case: after Emma Summerhayes discovered this Charlie resorted to blackmail to keep her quiet.

!!Arthur Chubb 'Fatboy' (Ricky Norwood)
* {{Claustrophobia}}: Revealed when he was locked up by Vincent in a closet overnight. [[spoiler: Horrible end to his life when he got involved in Vincent and Ronnie's Hubbard/Mitchell conflict because he was accidentally locked inside the boot of a car, triggering his fear of closed spaces.

!!Shabnam Masood (currently Rakhee Thakrar, previously Zahra Ahmadi)
* CharacterisationMarchesOn: When Shabnam was first introduced, she wasn't very interested in her Muslim culture but more into British culture, thus making her look rebellious to her mother Zainab. Once she returned from Pakistan in 2014: she finally became devoted to Islam, as well as undergoing a personality change with her having a SugarAndIcePersonality.
* TheOtherDarrin: Was originally played by Zahra Ahmadi until she left in 2008. The role was taken by Rakhee Thakrar in 2014 when Shabnam returned to the square

!!Nancy Carter (Maddy Hill)
* DeadpanSnarker: Always with a serious expression. Does it more often if she's feeling moody.
* HonorBeforeReason: Nancy is perhaps the most moral of the Carter family to a fault.[[spoiler: She tells Shirley the truth of what Mick did to Dean in the Vic cellar]]
* MiddleChildSyndrome: Shades of this can be seen. Her older brother, Lee is a war hero who's highly respected and her younger brother, Johnny is a mummy's boy who's recently come out. This can be seen clearly during Nancy's 21st birthday where her party is a little less than exciting, resulting in her mother, Linda going berserk. [[spoiler: The family are however unaware of mother, Linda being raped only days earlier and is still coming to terms with it.]]
* OutnumberedSibling: All of her siblings are male, even her new baby brother Ollie.
* SheCleansUpNicely: She made a stunning appearance (hair let loose, in a nice dress) for her parents' wedding. Even people in-universe were shocked.

!!Max Branning (Jake Wood)
* AbusiveParents: His father Jim used to punish him through extreme measures.
* DirtyOldMan: Is shaping up to be a slightly younger variant of this, Peter Beale calls him this trope word for word once the secret comes out that he was Lucy Beale's secret sexual liason before she died. Lauren also lampshades how he likes them young.
* DisappearedDad: Max and his abandonment of Bradley when he was young.
* DisproportionateRetribution: He's on the receiving end of this by his family when his affair with Stacey was revealed. How he made it in one piece after being buried alive by his wife and run over by his daughter is unclear.
