* SurprisinglySimilarCharacters: Park Gang-du and Park Dong-jin from ''Film/SympathyForMrVengeance''. Both men have had their wives leave them and are dysfunctional single parents having to raise their daughters by themselves. Both have had their daughters taken away from them and have gone out of their way to avenge them. The difference between them is, Dong-jin is terribly lost with his daughter gone, and he has no one else to go to for comfort, and since his adversaries are human, his actions paint him as no better than her kidnappers. What's more, Dong-jin is rich and LonelyAtTheTop. Gang-du, on the other hand, is poor and working class, [[spoiler: makes up for the death of his daughter by raising the orphan boy she protected]], has his father and siblings as emotional support, despite how much his brother and sister look down on him, and the fact that his enemy is a simple predator makes his actions much more heroic. Also, both are played by Song Kang-ho

* PuritySue: Wanderer; granted, she's not as egregious an example as [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Bella]], but still. She's honest, sweet-natured, and gentle to a fault, and toward the end she has quite a circle of admirers amongst the human clan. Those who do not admire her either don't know her, or, like Maggie and Sharon, are described as shrewish and hateful. At the end, she even ''looks'' the part, and Doc comes dangerously close to pronouncing her TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth.
** To be fair, though, the story is written from a first-person perspective. [[FridgeBrilliance Don't we all perceive people who are nice to us as better and more worthy of attention than people who aren't, regardless of circumstances?]]
** Which is why Melanie's perspective, for most of the story, is painfully overlooked. Maggie and Sharon are Melanie's aunt and cousin - maybe not as close family-wise as her brother, and definitely weird in some ways, but still family nonetheless. She knows much better than Wanda about their lives and personalities, and why they are bitter and hateful toward Souls. At the very least, she could have spoken up for them when Wanda made biased judgments about them. But Melanie hardly ever speaks up at all - and only when Jared is somehow involved. When somebody doesn't stick up for their own family in favor of the main character's point of view, there's a bit more than first-person bias going on.
