Badass Adorable: She looks cute, but she can take care of herself and her loved ones.
Betty and Veronica: Victor is "Archie", and he seems to have feelings for both Emily the "Veronica" to Victoria the "Betty". Both ladies like him as well, which makes for a very complicated Love Triangle.
Broken Bird: She's not that cynical, but her experience did make her feel depressed and lonely. Once she meets Victor, her spirits lift up and she's genuinely cheerful and happy.
Cute Monster Girl: She's a corpse and visibly decomposing, but she's still a beauty and looks adorable.
Death by Origin Story: Her backstory appears in the third of the film — she was killed on her wedding day by her fiancé who was after her money. Her family probably didn't approve of the match because they were eloping together, so there was nobody to help her.
Woman Scorned: It's not a pretty sight when she finds out that Victor, whom she accompanied back to the Land of the Living on the pretense of wanting her to meet his parents, actually lied to her so he could sneak back to Victoria. Subverted at the end of the film, when Emily graciously allows Victor to return to Victoria.
Aristocrats Are Evil: He's vile and should rot in hell. He's a murderer. He killed his fiancée which was a premeditated murder, and at the end of the movie he shows he might also kill in an affect.
The Bluebeard: He tricked Emily into taking her family's jewels and gold and eloping with him, then stole the treasure and killed her. He also heavily indicates an intention to kill Victoria after their marriage.
Chekhov's Gunman: You see him loitering in the streets twice during the opening credits and at least once during the opening song. He doesn't make his official debut in the story for another fifteen minutes or so.
Fate Worse than Death: Ironically, this is brought up AFTER his official death. He gets tortured by the dead.
Gold Digger: He wants to get married and get the lady's wealth. The emphasis is on the wealth. He killed his fiancée to get her money, gold and jewellery.
Jerkass: His behaviour is very unsympathetic right from the start when he insults most people present. He seems to get on with the Everglots, who are jerks as well.
Gold Digger: After a fashion; they are marrying Victor into the aristocracy so that they can gain access to high society that would ordinarily shun them for earning, rather than inheriting, their fortune.
Nouveau Riche: Born into humble beginnings, but made millions in the fish industry. For better or for worse, they have yet to acquire the upper class manners to match.
Social Climber: They go to the trouble of having coach with a fish ornament on top come to pick them up to take them across the street, all while talking to their son about hooking and catching an aristocratic daughter. Fish merchants indeed.
What Happened To The Groom's Parents? After Victor goes missing, they ride around town in Mayhew's carriage looking for him. Then Mayhew kicks the bucket, leaving the carriage driverless and out of control. They're never seen or even mentioned after this.
The Everglots (Albert Finney and Joanna Lumley)
Gold Digger: Of a different sort to the Van Dorts; they are marrying Victoria into the Van Dort family for their money.
Impoverished Patrician: "Land-rich, bankrupt aristocracy without a penny to their name," to quote Lord Everglot as he and his wife look into a safe containing nothing but cobwebs.
Perpetual Frowner: Neither of them are particularly cheerful. Lampshaded when Lord Everglot tries to force himself into a smile.
The Proud Elite: Their lack of money has not blunted their contempt for middle class families like the Van Dorts one bit.
Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Although they appear to be the same height when we first see them, Lord Everglot is standing on a stool and is only half as tall as his wife.
