* PutOnABus: Left the ship without explanation between Series VIII and ''Back to Earth''. Upon realizing she's probably still alive out there somewhere Lister vows to find her, but the show doesn't put much effort into it.

Added DiffLines:

* DoesNotLikeSpam: Whilst he shows mostly indifference to anything besides curry, he's on record as hating Pot Noodle, to the point where he'd much rather eat dog food.
** Fresh vegetables are another food he has an explicit aversion to, as shown by him disgusted by the raw carrot served with space weevil (but of course, he has no problem eating said weevil), as well as this exchange from ''Quarantine'', where Rimmer is clearly abusing his power over the others...
-->'''Rimmer:''' And fulfilling all Space Corps dietary requirements, dinner tonight, gentlemen, will consist of sprout soup, followed by sprout salad, and for desert, I think you'll like it, rather unusual, sprout crumble.
-->'''Lister:''' Rimmer, you know damn well that sprouts make me chuck.
-->'''Rimmer:''' Well, this is awful. I've got you down for sprouts almost every meal. I tell a lie - it ''is'' every meal.

* {{Retcon}}: In the first few series she was Lister's friend whom he had a secret crush on, but never had the nerve to ask out. The tie-in novels make her his ex-girlfriend, something which was eventually retconned into the TV series when she joined the main cast. (True, the Kochanski who ends up joining the crew is from an alternate reality, but it's clear from her conversations with this world's Lister that he now remembers them being in a relationship and her breaking up with him.)

->Lister: ''[The Cats]'re just using religion as an excuse to be extremely crappy towards each other.''
->Talkie Toaster: ''So what else is new.''
* {{Flanderization}}: In his first appearance, he wanted a new career, saying being a toaster "is making me into a guy I don't like". In season 4, he's become a complete monomaniac who cares about toast and nothing else (except other toasted breakfast products).

In season 4, he's become a complete monomaniac who cares about toast and nothing else (except other toasted breakfast products). A possible explanation for this is the fact that Lister took a hammer to him and fed him into the waste disposal unit.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Despite his appalling personal habits, he's by far the nicest and most moral Dwarfer, and the one most opposed to killing... but he can be outright [[LetsGetDangerous ''dangerous'']] when the fecal matter gets real...

* {{Manchild}}: He's incredibly immature, even though he's in at least his early-to-mid forties (and played by 48-year-old Charles) by "Trojan".

to:

* MadeOfIron: See {{Iron Buttmonkey}} above. He's taken a ''lot'' of [[AmusingInjuries damage]] over the years, not to mention the constitution he must have to make it to his 50's on a diet consisting mostly of curries, Leopard Lager, and assorted crap and ''still'' be healthy enough to cope with the craziness the crew frequently get caught up in. If the [[WordOfGod stories]] are true, this might apply to Craig Charles in real life too...

* Manchild: Even more so than ''Lister''. He often behaves like a particularly obnoxious child - sulky, petulant, selfish, and whiny, even sometimes yelling his head off like a kid throwing a tantrum. He's also willing to play childish pranks, such as the time he tied a sleeping Lister's dreads to a bedpost and then yelled "FIRE!" in his ear.

He often behaves like a particularly obnoxious child - sulky, petulant, selfish, and whiny, even sometimes yelling his head off like a kid throwing a tantrum. He's also willing to play childish pranks, such as seen in Series VIII, or the time he tied a sleeping Lister's dreads to a bedpost and then yelled "FIRE!" in his ear.
