* DoesNotLikeMen: "All men are assholes. Men and women use and abuse each other all the time. There's nothing wrong with it. Marriage has nothing to do with love".



* ShipperOnDeck: She's pro-Johnny and wants Lisa to stay with him, not because she's a fan of their romance but because she wants her daughter to marry so she can benefit from this.

* AllLovingHero: Johnny pays Denny's tuition and rent, lavishes his girlfriend with gifts, brings in lots of clients to his bank, and just cares so much about everybody. Everyone praises Johnny, even those who betray him.
--> "He's a ''wonderful'' person!"
* {{Angrish}}: During his AngerMontage, Johnny screams like this.



* DrivenToSuicide: Johnny kills himself because Lisa has been horrible to him but is still relying on him for cash, whilst cheating on him with his best friend. He finds all this out on his BIRTHDAY!



* InformedAbility: Johnny is supposed to be an excellent banker, despite his limited English and vampiric appearance.



* ParentalSubstitute: To Denny, a neighboring high school student whom Johnny financially supports and "loves like a son".



* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth

to:

* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarthTooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: "I'm fed up with this '''WARULD'''!"



* DudeMagnet: Besides Johnny and Mark, even Denny was secretly in love with her.



* ForTheEvulz: Lisa is originally just interested in Johnny's cash, but after a while she starts to flaunt her affair with Mark, and lies to Johnny about being pregnant just to "make things interesting".



* EasilyForgiven: Mark nearly shoves Peter over the edge of the roof and is forgiven almost instantly in an awkward fashion.



* KarmaHoudini: For some reason, Mark is blameless when Lisa cheats on Johnny with him all four times. When Johnny commits suicide, Mark is indignant at her. It takes two to tango, and he tangoed four times knowingly with his best friend's steady girlfriend and fiancée. His disgust at the very end of the film actually made sense because Lisa was actually coming on to him OVER JOHNNY'S CORPSE. His reaction could be seen as a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment.



* ManChild: To a degree. He keeps trying to go upstairs with Johnny and Lisa when he knows they're going to have sex, and presumably wants to join in, then follows them upstairs and jumps on the bed. He also talks about how he's "in love" with Lisa like a 7-year old, and fawns over her to a creepy effect.

* PrecociousCrush: Has one on Lisa.



* GoldDigger: She certainly believes that women should aspire to be this and more or less states that it's the only reason she married Lisa's father.
** She even mentioned how she tried to sponge off Johnny.

father. She even mentioned how she tried to sponge off Johnny.



* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: The most level-headed of the cast, along with Peter. She knows how destructive Lisa's infidelity is and tries to talk her out of it several times.
** Also the only character who doesn't say "don't worry about it" or "everything's going to be fine".
** And she's the only female character who seems to be a decent person.

* AxCrazy: So much so that his actor actually ended up scaring the rest of the crew with his performance.



* OnlySaneMan: [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously Even in real life]].

to:

* OnlySaneMan: [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously Even Peter is the only one who hesitates to play football in real life]].a tuxedo. He also points out how manipulative and two-faced Lisa is and tries to stop Mark from doing drugs, which would only aggravate the situation even further. Moreover, he tells Mark to take responsibility for his affair with Lisa and to stop seeing her. Given that he's a psychologist, it's not all that surprising that he is the only person with common sense.

* LargeHam: Perhaps not as obscene as Johnny or Chris-R, but she has her moments.
-->'''Lisa''': "What kind of drugs did you take!?!?!"
-->'''Denny''': "It's nothing like that...!"
-->'''Lisa''': "'''''WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?!?'''''"



* ObliviousToHints: On almost a spiritual level.
-->'''Mark''' (after Lisa leads him upstairs by the hand and holds him close): "What's going on here?"
* TheReveal: Mark shows up at the apartment where Johnny, Denny, and Peter have been waiting for him in tuxedos, [[spoiler:wearing one just as well...and ''shaven'']]. It is one of the most dramatic, bizarre twists of the movie.



* KidAppealCharacter: The only kid-like character in the movie (he is implied to be around the age of 18 but looks and acts ''much'' younger). Not that kids are even supposed to be seeing this movie, which is rated R, making him even more inexplicable.

* SmugSnake: Sure Lisa, be all secretive and paper thin with your lies and cheating. Johnny will ''[[SarcasmMode never]]'' find out.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: While Mark's by no means the least likeable character in the movie (Lisa and her mother spring to mind first in that regard), Greg Sestero is a genuinely cool guy with a lot of distance to both himself and the infamous movie he starred in and very open about discussing its production details and trivia with fans.

* InformedAttractiveness: Lisa's actress isn't ugly, but she still does not quite live up to how beautiful all the men act like she is.

* InformedAttractiveness: Lisa's actress isn't actress, while by no means ugly, but she still does not quite live up to how beautiful all the men act like she is. Especially jarring considering that an ''objectively'' much hotter Robyn Paris, playing Michelle, doesn't get even 10% of the attention that is paid to Lisa.

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Especially funny since it's Tommy Wiseau's natural accent.

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Especially funny since it's Tommy Wiseau's natural accent.[[note]]A journalist investigating his mysterious past came up with a hypothesis that Wiseau grew up in Poland which is at the very least ''plausible''.[[/note]]
