** And Lister's favorite "sarney", more or less of his own design, is three fried eggs on chutney-spread bread and given a generous dollop of chili sauce.

* IdenticalGrandson: Bexley, from "Future Echoes". Justified in this case,considering [[spoiler: his parents were [[OppositeSexClone opposite sex versions]] of each other from parallel realities.]] Presumably applies to his brother Jim as well.

--> '''Lister''': Stop calling everything "[[YouKeepUsingThatWord Crypto-fascist]]". You make me sound like a complete git!

* ARealManIsAKiller: Averted. Lister regards his "blokishness" with pride, considering it to make him a real man and being very disparaging about more metrosexual/new age type guys. But he's very much not a killer. He'll fight to defend himself, but he prefers to avoid lethal force. He explicitly calls out that his EvilTwin in the TV series is capable of killing people, which he himself isn't.

* BatmanGrabsAGuns: He prefers not to kill, but in "Justice", he forces a Simulant to kills himself, in "The Inquisitor", he [[RetGone deletes the Inquisitor from the timeline]] and in "Able", shoots a GELF with a bazookoid.

* ButtMonkey: He's been the victim of several pranks by inmates, such as having his glass eye stolen, being [[SlippingAMickey dosed]] with TruthSerum and [[RagingStiffie anti impotence drugs]] and having his quarters vandalised. To stress how much this trope applies, in most of these cases ''Rimmer'' was involved.

[[folder: Warden Ackerman]]
-> '''Played By:''' Graham [=MacTavish=] (1999)

The sadistic warden of the Tank, he sets out to make life hell for the Dwarfers during their two year stint.

* BaldOfEvil: He's bald and is the closest the series has ever had to a recurring antagonist.
* CampStraight: His GirlyRun and generally camp way of speaking belie his status as a ChickMagnet. This was a ThrowItIn by his actor that somehow makes him seem even more disturbing.
* ChickMagnet: At least two women offscreen have been involved with him, one of whom was married to the science officer.
* ColdHam: He's quite dramatic, if calm when giving his intake speech to new prisoners.
* CoolShades: He wears them in "Krytie TV" to disguise the fact that his glass eye has been stolen.
* IronicNickname: His nickname of "Nicey" [[{{Jerkass}} is a misnomer]] and quite possibly self-applied.
* {{Jerkass}}: He deliberately makes life hell for the inmates and is described by Lister as "horrible".
* RagingStiffie: Thanks to the Dwarfers [[SlippingAMickey spiking the halftime juice of the guards]] during a basketball game, he and his thugs are forced to play the second half with erections.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: His date describes his eyes as being his loveliest feature. He rants that if he goes missing an eyes "THEN I'M ONLY HALF LOVELY!"

* TheBore: Rimmer frequently tries to regale the others with long, boring uninteresting tales of an old bridge game, or his walking holidays through the ship, unaware of just how mind-sappingly dull and tedious these stories are, even when Lister tells him at length about this. At one point, a slide-show of his is boring enough to nearly ''kill'' Kryten.

** Inverted in "Waiting for God". Lister is treated as a god ("Cloister the Stupid") by a priest of the cat-race and attempts to explain he isn't. He fails.

* FatBastard (Not all that much of a bastard but he does get a ''lot'' of fat jokes)
** To top it off, Rimmer describes him as ''exactly this'' once.

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: The dimension jump drive on his ship is stated to be a one way trip with no hope of going back. This is further elaborated in ''Backwards'' (the book, not the tv episode) when it's stated that new dimensions are created constantly due to choices made by people every day. Ace doesn't seem to mind, though.
