* DistractedByTheSexy: Two of Faithful's momentary weaknesses are this; the first is when he encounters [[TheVamp Wanton]] (he resists her offer, but is uncertain whether he fully escaped her charms), and the second is when [[IHatePastMe Old Adam]] tries to bring Faithful into bondage by offering Faithful marriage to his three daughters, which tempts Faithful.

* KnightTemplar: Moses is depicted as a harsh and violent judge who tries to kill Faithful for his momentarily weakness. (Yes, ''[[Literature/TheBible that Moses]]''. He's meant to represent the Law, i.e. it can only condemn people for disobedience, but can't actually bring salvation, since knowing the law doesn't give people the power to obey).

* {{Hypocrite}}: Obviously, Christian runs into a few. Remarkably, the one actually named [[MeaningfulName 'Hypocrite']] doesn't get much time to show off his hypocrisy. A better example is shown in Talkative, who talks good game but Christian knows him personally to be a terrible person.



* ManipulativeBastard: Every demon in the story, a notable example is the ones in the Valley of the Shadow of Death. The Flatter also qualifies.
