* FatBastard: Barbieheart in ''Blind Faith'', who uses her position as the online moderator for everyone in Trafford's housing complex to bully and exploit the residents. It's suggested that she was given the role of moderator ''because'' her size renders her unable to leave the house, so she is perfectly placed to spend the whole day monitoring everyone via screens.

* BrainlessBeauty: Several, often used to deliver an {{Aesop}} about shallowness or vanity. A more sympathetic example is Kelly in ''Dead Famous'', but the character type probably explains why she [[spoiler: was the murder victim]]. Christine Copperfield in ''Past Mortem'' is similarly somewhat sympathetic [[spoiler: and likewise ends up murdered.]]
