* EnsembleDarkhorse: Sally Spectra, Macy's larger-than-life, FieryRedhead mother and rival of Stephanie/Forrester Designs, who was played by the late Darlene Conley. The fact that her character [[CharacterOutlivesActor is still alive off-screen]] a decade after her actress' demise and has her own figure at The Madame Tussaud Wax Museums in Las Vegas and ''Amsterdam'' shows how loved she was to fans and critics alike.

** Wyatt Spencer, for being the OnlySaneMan on ''both'' sides of the Spencer/Forrester clan, as well as reveling in his own moral ambiguity. His relationship with Katie also helped, since they're hilarious together.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossesTheLineTwice: The only way Bill Spencer is still likable even after all the shit he's pulled. He's a vile person, but he just has so much ''fun'' with it, and most of it is so over-the-top that it circles back around into being endearing.

Added DiffLines:

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Zende absolutely ripping into Julius, Maya's transphobic father, both for trying to persuade Nicole to not let Maya have Lizzy, and for being his usual bigoted self re: Maya's gender identity. It is ''so'' satisfying.

* JerkSue: Plenty of characters on the show ([[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy for obvious reasons]]), but Brooke is probably the purest example, as she has broken up marriages and relationships and has been nailed by almost every man on the show, yet feels it's her right to act high and mighty whenever someone else does anything against her. This may also count as ProtagonistCenteredMorality.
* MarySue: Hope. See TheScrappy below for more details.



* NeutralGood: Macy. After debuting in L.A. as a spiteful and spoiled young woman, her character was reformed to being one of most honest characters on the show with true moral integrity. Oftentimes when she feuded with Brooke, viewers automatically took her side because she didn't have anything wrong with her.

** Liam has essentially taken over the role after breaking up the love triangle. After spending years in the midst between Steffy and Hope, after Steffy divorces and leaves Liam, believing he'd be better off without her, he is surprised and offended to find that Hope has begun showing interest in another man, [[CainAndAbel his long lost brother Wyatt.]] For the entirety of the rest of the year Liam constantly complained that Wyatt was getting in between him and Hope, who [[{{Hypocrite}} conveniently forgot that he'd done the same thing when Hope and Oliver were trying to work out their problems.]] Unfotunately, [[CharacterShilling everyone else couldn't stop singing his praises,]] especially after Wyatt's mother Quinn was revealed to be mentally unstable, and interfering on her son's behalf, [[DesignatedVillain which was Wyatt's fault.]] After Hope gave him an ultimatum, that he meet her in Paris, he was ''tragically'' detained to save Ivy, after she was pushed in the Sein, by a disguised Quinn, leading Hope to think he had abandoned him, and move on with Wyatt. Of course when Liam found out [[NeverMyFault he was quick to point out that he would have been there in time if it wasn't for Quinn. Completely leaving out the part where he had to be convinced to meet Hope, leaving at the very last minute instead of sooner.]] After Hope had left the show, the triangle once again repeated itself this time with Steffy, whom once again after Liam broke up with her, and was kidnapped by Quinn while struck with Amnesia, Wyatt and Steffy ended up falling in love and got married, [[NeverMyFault while he pointed out that, the marriage was a sham due to Quinn and Wyatt's machinations.]] This time however everyone reminded Liam that he had broken up with Steffy before disappearing. Still acting entitled, his father finally stood up to his tantrums and reminded [[WhatTheHellHero him of all the times he had jumped between Steffy]] ''[[WhatTheHellHero his true love]]'' [[WhatTheHellHero and Hope, his other true love.]]
