* {{Jerkass}}: The biggest in the show. Even though she had already kicked Alan out of their house and gotten the right to an extremely high alimony, which had given Alan no choice but to live with his brother Charlie, she loved to destroy his life even further and extort even ''more'' money from him. She also seemed to have no love for her son Jake, and still had the nerve to complain at ''Alan's'' parenting skills. And it became obvious that she treated her new husband, Herb, just as badly as she had treated Alan. And except for one episode, where she actually allowed Alan to live with her and Herb after he had a fight with Charlie (which was very out of character for her), she had no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

She actually started out as a reasonably realistic person in the face of a divorce and and confusion abou her own sexuality, but gradually became more narcissistic and selfish as the show went on.

* CompressedVice: Portrayed as an out-of-control alcoholic in ""Not in My Mouth!", with no previous indications of a drinking problem. Her alcohol issues appeared inconsequentially in the following episodes. Eventually, she was flanderized into a raging alcoholic, before going sober in season 12.

-->I'm not saying I hate you, but if I did, it might have something to do with the fact that you're a narcissistic bloodsucker who drove my father into an early grave, after which you married a succession of men who couldn't care less about Alan and me, which was just fine with you 'cause you... looked at us like a couple of dancing monkeys you could just haul out whenever it suited you! And when it didn't, you sent us off to boarding school or camp or that kibbutz in Israel, where we got beat up 'cause we weren't even Jewish! And now... now you show up here every chance you get to lay a guilt trip on me for not appreciating my cold, lonely, loveless childhood!

* MamasBabyPapasMaybe: Played with. It's implied that Jake might not even be Alan's son; Charlie can't help but notice how much the exterminator, water deliveryman, and mailman all resemble Jake...
** [[TheUnreveal It's never been conclusively answered]], but many signs point to Judith and Herb's daughter Milly actually being Alan's.

* NotSoDifferent: Alan likes to act like he's better then Charlie because he got married and had a kid instead of having endless casual sex in various ways, but while he doesn't have as much sex as Charlie(or with as many women), Alan has quite a bit of casual sex and has cheated on women several times and done some other morally questionable stuff throughout the series.

Alan, though it's more due to the situation (Herb is the husband of Alan's ex-wife). Personality-wide, they're actually pretty similar. Maybe Judith HasAType...

* DeadpanSnarker: Inbetween giving helpful advice that Charlie rarely ever listened to and once assured Charlie the sarcasm is a flat rate.

* HolierThanThou: He looks down on pretty much everything Charlie does that isn't an age appropriate relationship. Inverted by Season 10, when Alan goes through both AesopAmnesia and even more {{Flanderization}}, and Walden actually has to tell him, "You're better than this."

* GeneratioXerox: Jake had quite a bit of success with women just like Charlie did. In high school Jake had a threeway with two girls that he likely lost his virginity to, and slept with his tutor, Zoey's slutty neighbor, Missy (who had a boyfriend), his older girlfriend Tammy, and then Tammy's daughter. Charlie would have been proud. If some of Jake's throwaway comments to Alan mean anything, the list might be even longer.
