* NiceGuy: The nicest character in the entire film - notably, he's the only character in the film who's nice to the janitor. This being Film/TheBreakfastClub, he gets put through hell for it.

* SugaryMalice: Never loses his fatherly façade.



* AbusiveParent: Probably the nastiest parent we see in the film, next to Andy's dad. In addition to putting a metric ton of pressure on her son to get straight A's, she has the audacity to verbally abuse him as she's dropping him off at detention. ''In front of her younger daughter.''

* StrawCharacter: Possesses an "up-by-the-bootstraps" attitude towards success, implying a conservative or libertarian mindset.

He's [[StupidEvil impulsive]], amoral, [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]], [[NeverMyFault shirks responsibility for his actions]], [[LackOfEmpathy disregards the safety and well-being of others]], possesses a [[HairTriggerTemper low aggression threshold]], has [[SmallNameBigEgo a grandiose sense of self-worth]] and last but not least, fails to follow through any realistic long-term plans for his future. It's easy to see why he didn't get ahead.



* StrawCharacter: He's boorish, crude, and obsessed with sex and violence. He's as stereotypical of a working-class Republican as you can get.
