* TheAlcoholic: Mavis. She knocks back a serious amount of hard liquor in many scenes and is shown passed out on her bed [[RunningGag every single morning]]. [[spoiler: She ultimately realizes this and confesses to her parents, but they laugh it off as a joke]].

* AmbiguouslyGay: May cross over into LesYay, but there are odd hints that Sandra (Matt's sister) may have or have had a crush on Mavis. Leaving Rice Crispie Treats in her locker, when they weren't even friends, for example. The end where she [[spoiler: begs to let her come back to Minneapolis with her]] also hints at it.

* ChildHater: Seemingly Mavis, given her reaction to Buddy's newborn daughter. However, [[spoiler:this is thrown into a new (possibly sympathetic) light when she reveals that Buddy had gotten her pregnant at age 20 and she suffered a miscarriage at 12 weeks, which presumably led to their break-up. They had been planning to keep the baby.]]

* {{Expy}}: ''Waverly Prep'' bears more than a few resemblances to ''Literature/TheClique'' (down to its very shallow popularity-obsessed characters [[WereStillRelevantDammit based off of what's trending at the time of writing]], being set in a very rich New York locale, the seeming churning out of titles and quick publishing demand and [[DeaderThanDisco sudden bottoming-out of popularity]]/relegation to clearance sale shelves)

* InspirationallyDisadvantaged: Subverted. Matt walks with a crutch, but its only one of a laundry list of problems he pities himself for. "Wheelcair" Mike Moran, who is handsome, popular, perky, athletic and more disabled than Matt, tries to be type B, but Just manages to piss of Matt and Mavis by stealing everyone's attention.
