* NobleBigotWithABadge: Harly Clay from "Threepersons". He can't get over Tom Threepersons being a Native American (he usually calls him "Cherokee", which Tom hates), but invites Tom to join his task force because he respects Tom's abilities. [[spoiler:At the episode's climax, when Tom goes to fight the bad guys on his own, Clay repeatedly tells him that he won't be able to provide backup, but does so anyway in a prime example of ChangedMyMindKid.]]

The show was fairly popular in its day. Still, it's not nearly as well-remembered as competitors such as ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'', ''Series/AlfredHitchcockPresents'', or radio's ''Suspense''. One possible reason is confusion over the name; the series obviously couldn't retain the title ''Kraft Suspense Theatre'' in reruns, but it somehow got ''two'' {{Syndication Title}}s, ''Suspense Theatre'' and ''Crisis'' (no relation to [[Series/{{Crisis}} the 2014 series]] with [[SimilarlyNamedWorks the same name]]).

* EccentricMillionaire: Wolfe Hastings from "The Trains of Silence" seems to be this at first. [[spoiler:The truth is much darker: he's mentally ill, and his aide-de-camp has become TheStarscream and is keeping him isolated.]]

** In "Leviathan Five", four scientists and a guard are trapped in an underground lab. There's only enough oxygen for four people, so one of them has to [[HeroicSacrifice die to save the others]]. What now? [[spoiler: When attempts to randomly choose the victim fail, one of the scientists kills the guard. After all four scientists are convicted of murder, the killer confesses to spare his colleagues.]]

* CowardlyLion: Private [=LeRoy=] Brubaker from "Operation Greif". He's a [[DeadpanSnarker sarcastic]] LovableRogue who can't stay out of trouble, avoids work and fighting whenever possible, and makes it clear that all he wants is to survive UsefulNotes/WorldWarII in one piece. However, [[spoiler:when he discovers that a Nazi infiltrator is on his way to commit sabotage, he goes after the spy alone and kills him just in time to stop him]].
