* Avril, an AI introduced in a ''Pyramid'' article for ''TabletopGames/TranshumanSpace'' is a Princess of Pranksters, programmed by two human Princes of Pranksters. Apparently, analysis of her pranks has shown she doesn't really have a sense of humour as such, she just knows what humans would find ''annoying''.

Plenty of sitcoms and comedy films love to have this character. A character who revels in pulling the most elaborate of pranks on a regular basis. Whenever this character is around, everyone else runs the risk of sitting on whoopee cushions, putting salt in their tea instead of sugar, waking up to find their eyebrows gone...you get the picture. This character is typically male but female examples have become more prominent. Note that the POP differs from the ClassClown as a Class Clown will normally be loved for his/her comedy antics while the POP will typically be feared and sometimes despised for their pranks outside of their normal circle of friends. Having this character around will generally lead to an EscalatingWar if someone wishes to challenge them. They are, however, liable to MenaceDecay.
