** Pamela Cox's Malory Towers sequels also have many of these, usually as Expys of other characters. The LesYay implication between Bill and Clarissa is upped by the new horse-mad duo, Julie and Lucy, implied when Lucy excitedly mentions how when they leave school they are going to live together. They're running a stables together, but Lucy's wording makes it sound as if she's thinking of Julie as a romantic partner.

** Wilhelmina Robinson of ''Malory Towers'' insists on being called Bill. She has seven brothers and so is 'more of a boy than a girl herself', and eschews all typically feminine pursuits in favour over her obsession with horses.
** Roberta, the resident tomboy of ''St Claire's'', is always known as Bobby. Unlike tempramental George and distant Bill, Bobby is a good-humoured and quick-witted class clown.

* TimmyInAWell: Used more than once. In the first FamousFive book this happens very literally when Timmy the dog chases a rabbit and falls down an old well. In this case, though, it's the children who rescue the dog, rather than vise-versa!
