* CompleteMonster: [[spoiler: Alison]] from the book series kills [[spoiler: her twin sister in a fit of rage for simply switching places with her]], kills Ian because of his relationship with Courtney, and later on kills Jenna simply because she knew the secret. Besides that, [[spoiler: Alison pretends to be Ian in an IM conservation, stalks the girls as the second A, repeatedly blackmails them, and feeds them false information]]. She then tries to have someone else framed for her misdeeds. In the last book, when she appears, she manipulates Emily's feelings for her, pretends to be friends with Hanna, tries to steal Aria's boyfriend, and then attempts to kill the girls of the book. She also sends Hanna fake tickets and has her sent to a mental institution. [[spoiler: Alison even stated in her letter that she was glad that she had killed Jenna.]]

** [[AxCrazy Lyndon James]], an ArcVillain from seasons 2 and 3, is an [[StalkerWithACrush obsessive and psychopathic stalker]] who met Maya St. Germain at a juvenile detention camp. After a brief relationship, she returned home to rekindle her relationship with Emily, at which point Lyndon stalks her and [[IfICantHaveYou eventually murders her]]. He then plots to murder Emily next, expressing a desire to kill anyone close to her. Pretending to be Maya's cousin Nathan, Lyndon lures Emily with a false friendship and briefly considers letting her live when he thinks he has a shot, before finding out she's a lesbian. At which point, he abducts Emily's girlfriend and plots to [[ForcedToWatch force Emily to watch]] as he kills her for his perceived rejection. It's also implied Jenna Marshal is next when he learns she witnessed Maya's murder. While attempting to kill Emily, Lyndon is fatally stabbed, and while Caleb is comforting Emily, Lyndon gets a hold of the gun and shoots Caleb before he dies, although Caleb ultimately survives. Despite having nothing to do with the "A Game", Lyndon is one of the most evil characters on the show for his ultimately selfish motives and [[{{Yandere}} deranged personality]].

Added DiffLines:

* FanonDiscontinuity: A lot of fans like to ignore the second half of the finale instead of AssPull plot that AD is [[spoiler: Spencerís British long-lost twin]] and instead think of Mary Drake as the villain.

Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedHero: Lucas in the first series. He has no hesitation speaking his mind about how Hanna supposedly deserves better than Sean. Except... all Sean's done "wrong" is not have sex with her. Most teenage girls would be glad to not have the pressure.
* DesignatedVillain: Ok, maybe "villain" is a strong word here, but as regards the storyline mentioned in DesignatedHero, we do seem to be not supposed to side with Sean about not having sex until he's ready.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: [[spoiler: Sara "Shower" Harvey]] We should sympathize with this character for obvious reasons, but instead she is potentially the most loathed character in the entire PLL universe. Why? Six words: "I need to take a shower." Of course "Game Over, Charles" revealed that she wasn't meant to be sympathetic and was EvilAllAlong.

** The main 4 Liars, especially Spencer, have a habit of believing that whoever A is trying to frame for being Ali, [[spoiler: Maya, or Bethany's]] killer or being A is absolutely guilty, and that there is no chance that they could be framed, and yelling at and being very unpleasant and hostile towards them or anyone who thinks they may not be guilty. After [[spoiler: Toby, Jenna, Caleb, Ian, Jason, Garrett, Lucas, Melissa, Byron, Mike, Ezra, Ali, Noel, and less important characters like Leslie]] they would learn to start gathering more evidence before jumping to conclusions. Especially since they keep being framed for different crimes, with Toby and Spencer constantly saying that they don't jump to conclusions for this reason... before jumping to conclusions.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossesTheLineTwice: It can be pretty uncomfortable hearing the Liars continually make jokes about Jenna's blindness, especially given that [[spoiler: they inadvertently caused it]].

*** The [[spoiler: book is published]] in the five years between 6x10 and 6x11, and he apparently suffered no ill will for it.

Added DiffLines:

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: The final season went heavy on the fanservice, which led to a resurgence of one of the most popular and enduring fan theories: that Aria [[spoiler:was the ultimate mastermind behind the A scheme, or at least was fated to play an integral role in the A-Team.]] The exploration of this idea in 7B could well be a TakeThatAudience. [[spoiler:While Aria ''does'' end up joining the A-Team as TheMole, her reasons for agreeing are [[DrivenToVillainy sympathetic]] and the awful things she does on A.D.'s orders eat her up inside.]]


Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: The disbarred doctor-turned-alcoholic the girls visit in season 7, and his haunting advice about what the human heart craves and returns to in the end.

** Hannah didn't really consider her options when [[spoiler: holding who she thought to be A at gun point.]] not only does she not [[spoiler: shoot her when she started to run away. But when Not A jumped to another building, Hannah still never even considered that a gun is a projectile weapon, and if anything the person in the mask has just taken any chance they had of rushing her off the table.]]

** From the beginning, Spencer and Alison have both been frequently suspected (both in fan theories and by characters in the series) of murdering someone (supposed victims being the person who was buried That Night: Alison, the '''real''' Alison, Courtney Dilaurentis, Sarah Harvey, or Bethany Young and Mona Vanderwaal in season five). Fast forward to season seven, where at this point Alison and Spencer are the only Liars- even when including Mona- who ''haven't'' murdered anyone!
