* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Subverted in her relationship with Caleb.

* FishOutOfWater: When she's [[spoiler: following Paige]] and ends up at a lesbian bar. Of course, HilarityEnsues.
* FormerlyFat: She used to be mocked by Alison (the Alpha Bitch and former "It Girl") for being overweight. Over the summer, after Alison's disappearance, Hanna became gorgeous and skinny.

* NearDeathExperience: In Season 1, when [[spoiler: A runs her over with a car.]]
* NiceGirl: She's too nice to qualify as an AlphaBitch or even LovableAlphaBitch. Despite her popularity, she's anything but bitchy.

->"''You know what they say about hope. It breeds eternal misery.''"
[[caption-width-right:245:You know what Ali said that night? About our secrets keeping us close? I think it was the opposite.]]

A classic overachiever, Spencer is confident, calculating, and could stand up to Alison when no one else could, showing her determination. However, Spencer begins to show a bit of strain when she and her friends begin receiving strange texts from the mysterious "A". She's the smart member of the group.

YouGoGirl]].
* TheBGrade: Considers getting a B "failing".
* BigScrewedUpFamily: Specially as of season 2, the Hastings prove to be this.

* BrainyBrunette: Has brown hair and is the smartest of the liars.
* BrokenAce: An excelling athlete and student (Ace) , who lost her friend [[spoiler: NotQuiteDead]], battles an addiction [[spoiler: and a pretty bad relapse]], suffers a mental breakdown [[spoiler: more then once]] and deals with her parents divorce. Pretty much covers the broken part.
* DeadpanSnarker: Emphasis on Deadpan.
* {{Determinator}}: She is a very driven young girl.
* DrivenToMadness: [[spoiler: Spencer's mental breakdown. Until it's revealed she faked being crazy to get Mona to underestimate her. This allows Spencer to beat Mona. Sorta.]]

-->'''Spencer''': Nuclear. Nu-cle-ar.
* HeroicBSOD: As of "Out of Sight, Out of Mind".
* GenderBlenderName: Spencer is traditionally a male name, although it's not unheard of in females in real life. In television, however, it's not that common.
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: She doesn't really understand why, although being TheUnfavorite has a lot to do with it. That and her sister's abominable taste in men, who constantly go after Spencer.
* InformedAbility: She is apparently very talented in Field Hockey, but we never actually see her play.
* InsistentTerminology: Post-TimeSkip, she takes a job supporting grassroots political campaigns. She is not, repeat, '''not''' a lobbyist, despite Veronica's claims to the contrary.

* TallDarkAndSnarky: A StepfordSnarker to be exact, given her general BrokenAce arc.
* TokenGoodTeammate:
** Of the Hastings family.
** [[spoiler: Of the A Team, as she has actually joined to expose them rather than to help them.]]
* TomboyishName: Spencer can also be a male name.
* TookALevelInJerkass: After she and [[spoiler: Toby]] break up she possibly becomes a bigger bitch than Alison. However, this is due to the fact that [[spoiler: Toby betrayed her and is in the A-Team,]] not because of a simple break-up, so, it is somewhat justified.
* TheUnfavourite: When Spencer's parents are home they tend to neglect her in favor of Melissa. [[spoiler: "The [=dArkest=] Knight" establishes that Spencer's parents aren't her ''actual'' parents.]]
* UptownGirl: with Toby and with Alex, the tennis instructor. She likes those almost as much as she likes [[TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry her sister's boyfriends]].

Emily is the star of Rosewood's swim team. She struggled with an on and off relationship with Alison, who at times would say things to put Emily at risk of being outed.

-->'''Emily:''' God, the thing I had with Paige was so genuine! And now...\\
'''Spencer:'''Do you think you can fix it?\\
'''Emily: Sure, just go up to Paige and say you were right all along, let's kiss and make up.
* BiTheWay: In the books she is bi, but it's averted on the show. Initially she's dating Ben but has feelings for Maya.

'''Emily:''' [Pregnant paus] ... I think I know what I want. ... But if I say yes to Maya, everything would change. You know it would. \\
'''Hanna:''' Yeah, it would. You wouldnít have to pretend youíre someone youíre not. \\

* ClosetKey: To ArmouredClosetGay [[spoiler: Paige]]

%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindows
* DuetBonding: She and Paige became closer after singing a duet of Music/{{Pink}}'s "So What?".
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Phlegmatic. You do ''not'' want to see her choleric side. She is even worse than Spencer.

Her first crush goes missing and is found dead after a year. Her first girlfriend gets sent away by her parents after her mother turns her in for possessing weed, and is stalked and murdered by someone she meets in rehab camp, who goes after Emily and her next girlfriend, stalks and kidnaps them and attempts to make her watch him murder her girlfriend and then her for both rejecting him and being picked over him by her previous girlfriend. Not to mention the main secret she was trying to keep and her main source of conflict in season one was her attraction to girls, leading A to use that against her. All this and more occured in the first half of the show.
* GirlNextDoor: Introduced as the perfectly obedient daughter and girl next door type.
* GreenEyedEpiphany: In seasons one and five, when, after dumping Paige, she saw her with another character
* HeroicBSOD: After [[spoiler: killing Nathan]] in "The Lady Killer", which even required a CooldownHug.
* LesbianJock: Emily definitely fits the lesbian part. Whether or not being a swimmer counts as being a jock is debatable, but Maya has called her such on occasion.
-->'''Emily:''' And you're looking at me cause I'm gay? \\
'''Aria:''' No, you just happen to be the sporty one.
* LipstickLesbian: She's shown to be feminine and fashionable (maybe a TomboyWithAGirlyStreak since she is also an athete).
* LoveRevelationEpiphany: She didn't realize she had feelings for Paige until after she kissed her for the first time in season one.

* MilitaryBrat: Her father is in the National Guard and spends most of the series stationed away from Rosewood. In the second season, it looks like Emily may move to Texas with her parents for a year, but she convinces them to let her stay with Hanna instead.

* MoralityPet: For Alison. Out of the four other liars, Alison is closest with Emily.
* NearDeathExperience:
** She and Paige were almost killed [[spoiler: by Nathan]] in "The Lady Killer".

** Then again in season four. First when she gets locked in the school at night and her dad has to climb a window to save her from an assailant, and then again when she gets kidnapped and nearly split in two in a sawmill.
* NearRapeExperience: In Season 1, [[spoiler: but she's saved just in time by Toby.]]
* NiceGirl: She is the sweet and loyal "good girl" of the group.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Emily's is consistently depicted as a [[NiceGirl kind-hearted person who can forgive almost any offense]], so if she's chewing you out, then it means that you have well and truly screwed up.
* PassionateSportsGirl: The most athletic of the liars.
* RaceLift: Emily is portrayed by Shay Mitchell who has mixed Filipino and Irish heritage. In the book, Emily is just plain Caucasian.
%%* StatuesqueStunner
* StarCrossedLovers: With [[spoiler: Paige]]

Alison was the "It Girl" and the QueenBee of Rosewood High School until she mysteriously disappeared. One year after her disappearance, her body is found buried in the backyard of Maya St. Germain's house [[spoiler: later confirmed to not be her]], which used to be hers. However, she is constantly remembered in flashbacks and has also appeared to the Liars through dreams in the present day.
* TheAce: The reason why she was the "It Girl", since she is attractive, smart and charismatic.
* AdaptationalHeroism: She's still an AlphaBitch, but she's nowhere near as horrible a person as she was in the books. She's not the BigBad and, after her return to Rosewood, seems to be trying to shed most of her AlphaBitch traits.
* ADayInTheLimelight: "The First Secret" has Alison as the main protagonist for a change, since the whole episode is a flashback to the Halloween before her disappearance.
* AlmostKiss: With [[spoiler: Toby]] in a flashback shown in the season 4 premiere episode; they're interrupted by [[PosthumousCharacter his mother]] right before their lips touch.
* AlphaBitch: She has her own GirlPosse - the Liars - and is at the top of the social pyramid. She's willing to do anything to stay there, including blackmail and bribery.
* AmbiguouslyBi: It is unknown whether Alison actually was an ArmoredClosetGay who had feelings for Emily or she was just manipulating her [[spoiler: until she admits "those kisses weren't just for practice" in season 4. Again when she tells Emily that she loves her]]
* AssholeVictim: She might have been only 15 when she died [[spoiler: though she's not actually dead]], but she managed to make so many people hate her that just about every other supporting character in the show had a motive for her murder.
* TheAtoner: The time she spent on the run has apparently made her realize just how much damage she did as AlphaBitch. In "Whirly Girl", she even tries to make amends to Mona and says that [[ThatManIsDead the awful person she used to be is gone.]] Her words during her fight with Mona in "Miss Me x 100" cast some doubt on whether or not she is genuinely trying to change her ways, though:
-->'''Alison:''' All I had to do was say "I'm sorry" and Mindy and Cindy were ''begging'' to be my friends again.

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: She was beaten up with a hockey stick and ''buried alive'' afterwards! [[spoiler: She [[NotQuiteDead is later revealed to have survived,]] though.]]
* DeadAllAlong: Remember when Ali was missing? Oh yeah, she was actually dead. Buried under her parent's gazebo since the night of her alleged "disappearance". [[spoiler: Subverted as of "Now You See Me, Now You Don't.]]
* DeathGlare: According to her mother, she was an expert at it by age five.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: As the blonde school diva. Not loved by everyone though, since she has a lot of enemies.
* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler:She survived a blow to the head and being buried alive, but disappeared afterwards to make her attacker think she had died.]]
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: A dark deconstruction with Alison. While everyone in town hates her, the Liars put up with her. However, they spent most of season five wondering why and turned on her when she continued to lie to cover her tracks. They even suspected her of murder and did everything they could to get her arrested.
* HeelRealization: Being in prison makes her realize how horrible she was to her friends. By time they realize she's being framed and reach out to help make things right, she feels she's the one who owes them an apology.

[[caption-width-right:350:Iíll shake people down ó I love doing that.]]

A former loser who was tormented by Alison (yet still idolized her), Mona and Hanna became really close friends after Ali goes missing, and become the [[AlphaBitch top popular girls]] of Rosewood High. She's witty and can be mean at times, but treats Hanna like a sister and seems to get along with the other Liars as well. [[spoiler: The second season finale reveals that she's A, and she's sent to an asylum after being diagnosed as insane. She returns to school after "getting better" in the second half of season 3, but continues working with the second A all along, until she's betrayed in the season finale and almost burnt alive with the Liars.]] She is promoted to main character status in the fourth season.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Blonde in the book, brunette in the TV show.
* AdaptationExpansion: [[spoiler: In the original book series, Mona dies when she tries to kill Spencer. While the same scene happens in the Season 2 finale, she manages to survive. Everything from that moment onwards has been created exclusively for the TV series.]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Before Alison's disappearance.
* AlphaBitch: In early Season 1.
* AmbiguouslyBi: She is EXTREMELY fond of Hanna. "A Is For Answers" hints that she was attracted to Ali as well.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: [[spoiler:In Season 4, after her supposed HeelFaceTurn. It's still unclear if she has genuinely ended her vendetta against the Liars.]]
* AscendedExtra: Her role wasn't that influential in the first season, but she gradually starts gaining more importance as from the second season onwards. In season 4, she becomes a main character.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:For the first two seasons, though none of us know this until the end of the latter. In Season 3, she becomes TheDragon, while pretending to have reformed, until she's expelled from the A Team in the finale. She becomes an anti-hero in Season 4, but returns to BigBad status in Season 5A, after she bands together an army of Ali haters to work against her. Ali ultimately takes the role from her near the end, when she goes rogue and starts her own army.]]
* BigBadDuumvirate: With Charles in Season 3A. It seems that at the start [[spoiler: Mona and Charles/Big A were working together as partners, but Big A eventually took the game away from her and made it entirely his]].
* BigNo: Upon discovering the RV was gone.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: ZigZagged in regards to Hanna: [[spoiler: On the one hand, she used her friendship with Hanna to gain inside info on the girls, making her more effective as A. On the other hand, she seems to truly care about what happens to Hanna.]]
* BrainyBrunette: One of the few characters who can match Spencer intellectually. She usually tries to downplay it.
* BrokenAce: Her unique repertoire of skills [[spoiler:that allowed her to flourish as A]] makes her a useful ally to the Liars in later seasons, but the group (sans Hannah) never truly trusts or accepts her. She's also a mentally unbalanced individual who tends to lapse back into unhealthy behaviour and obsession.
* DarkerAndEdgier: As the series progresses, her character becomes much darker than the light-headed girl in the beginning.
* DarkHorseVictory: And how. [[spoiler:She's the ultimate winner of the A game in Season 7, outwitting the BigBad, and imprisons her (and her mother) in her personal dollhouse in the penultimate scene of the series.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Now that she's been [[spoiler: revealed as A]], she indulges in this on occasion.
-->'''Spencer:''' "If you so much as touch one hair on their heads, I will make you very sorry!"
-->'''Mona:''' (smirking) "Looks like someone's been skipping her anger management classes."
* DealWithTheDevil: Invoked. She describes her [[spoiler: arrangement with the true A as this]]. Basically, [[spoiler: she became TheDragon and gave control of the A-team over to the true A and in exchange, the true A arranged free passage in and out of Radley for her.]] Now, whether or not she was telling the truth about that is open to interpretation.
* TheDragon: To [[spoiler: the second "A". She also sort of becomes this to Ezra Fitz in Season 4, but clearly does not want to be in his employ]].
* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler: Is revealed to be the first "A".]]
* EvilFormerFriend: [[spoiler: Mona was Hanna's best friend and later turned into her worst nemesis.]]
* FalseFriend: [[spoiler: Mona is Hanna's best friend but only uses this to gather information on how to take the girls down as "A".]]
* TheFashionista: Along with Hanna, she is stylish and interested in fashion.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: To the Liars. Even before she was revealed as A, only Hanna liked hanging out with her. After she is revealed to be A, she's generally kept around because she's useful and Hanna still likes her a little.
* GirlishPigtails: In flashbacks, the pigtails were part of her dorky appearance.
* GoodGirlGoneBad: She used to be a nerdy harmless girl who was frequently bullied by Alison in the past. She changes after she becomes popular.
* HeelFaceTurn:
** [[spoiler: She's trying to convince Rosewood that she's made one, but "Mona-Mania" confirms that she is definitely still on A's side.]]
** [[spoiler: She makes one for real in "A dangerous gAme"]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Hanna, after Ali vanishes from the picture. They later grow apart, [[spoiler: as Mona was revealed to be in the A Team,]] but their distance is bridged a little in the season 4 premiere. It will probably never be what it was, though.
* HollywoodNerd: Before Alison went missing.
* IfItsYouItsOkay: Mona is completely heterosexual by her own admission, but she jokingly tells Hanna that she's totally go gay for her.
* ItMeantSomethingToMe: Despite [[spoiler: having used her position as Hanna's best friend to help her attack the girls as "A"]], she tells Hanna this in the Season 4 premiere:
-->'''Mona:''' I really did love you... ''({{Beat}})'' and I really was your friend.
* LovableAlphaBitch: Sometimes. She's certainly not loveable when she's bullying Lucas.
* {{Meganekko}}: In flashbacks. For some reason, after she became popular she stopped using glasses (presumably for popularity). It's possible she got contacts though...
* MightAsWellNotBeInPrisonAtAll: [[spoiler: During her stint in the Radley Sanitorium, she continues to act on instructions from the A-team and communicate with them. She even manages to leave for a night in "This Is A Dark Ride."]]
* NearDeathExperience: [[spoiler: A]] tries to kill her in "Turn of the Shoe".
* NeverFoundTheBody: [[spoiler: because she's alive]].
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler: In 'Welcome To The Dollhouse' it's revealed that she wasn't killed, and the attack from 'Taking This One To The Grave' was actually a kidnapping]].
* TheNicknamer: Coming up with nicknames, especially mean ones, are part of her heritage as AlphaBitch from Ali
* ObfuscatingInsanity: In the third season.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: She seems a bit dumb and ditzy initially, but in "The Naked Truth" she reveals herself to be smart enough to help Emily hack into Tamborelli's system. And of course, this is taken even further [[spoiler: when she's revealed to be part of the A team.]]
* PlayfulHacker: Reveals to be a very skilled hacker in "The Naked Truth".
%%* PreppyName
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler: In the season 2 finale, but it's later revealed to be obfuscation.]]
* SixthRanger: With the Liars.
* SixthRangerTraitor:
** [[spoiler: Mona pretends to get texts from "A" and bonds with the girls over it. It is later revealed that Mona is A.]]
** [[spoiler: She regains her status as the SixthRanger in the fourth season premiere.]]
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler: If the TV series had followed the books, she would have been killed off in season 2. Instead, she appears to have been killed in season 5's midseason finale, but the season 5 finale reveals she's NotQuiteDead.]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: After Alison's disappearance, she reinvented herself from the quiet, mousy girl she was into a new It Girl, and total bitch. She even adopted Alison's insult for Lucas, "hermie".
* WellIntentionedExtremist: For all her {{Jerkass}} behavior in forming the Mona Army in Season 5, she seems to be honestly concerned that Alison's return is going to be bad for the rest of the Rosewood student body.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: She only seems to get along with Hanna. The other girls only tolerate her for the most part and it's clear they don't completely trust her.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler:She was completely psycho as A but we do have to remember that she had no friends.]]

* ActionGirl: She can definitely hold her own in a fight. She was able to save Spencer from the person in the Queen of Hearts costume by beating said person up.
* ArmouredClosetGay: Was this when she was first introduced, but eventually came out in season 2. In Season 3, it's revealed that this is because Alison actively made her think being gay was something to be ashamed of.
%%* BoundAndGagged: In "The Lady Killer".
* TheBusCameBack: She briefly appears in two episodes at the end of season 2, at first hoping to rekindle her relationship with Emily, then agreeing to just be friends. Starting with season 3, she sticks around for good and starts dating Emily again. Then after being put on a bus a second time in season five, she comes back again in season seven.
* CanonForeigner: She didn't appear in the books.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler: ''Narrowly'' averted in the backstory. Alison was apparently so cruel to her, that she considered this. The only reason she didn't is because she realized doing that would mean "Alison would win."]].
* DuetBonding: She and Emily became closer after singing a duet of P!nk's "So What?"
* GirlinessUpgrade: She's initially less feminine than Maya or Samara, and is far more aggressive and competitive (including [[spoiler: almost drowning Emily]]), and yet she's not quite the ButchLesbian due to the makeover she gets in season 3: the writers decided to make her HotterAndSexier and so she was [[TheBusCameBack presented again]] with [[LongHairIsFeminine longer hair]], sexier clothes and more LipstickLesbian tendencies.
* HeelFaceTurn: After we find out that she's gay.
* HotterAndSexier: As the series progresses, Paige gets a makeover, long hair and sexier outfits.
* InformedAbility: According to Spencer, she's a great field hockey player (a penalty was named after her!) but like with Spencer, we never get to see her play.
* InSeriesNickname: "Pigskin", by [[spoiler: Alison.]]
* JerkJock: Prior to her HeelFaceTurn.
* LesbianJock: As a swimmer and a hockey player. There's even a penalty named after her.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: By season 3, she and Ezra are the only ones of the main characters' love interests to not know about [[spoiler: the second A. Emily opens up about the second A in the season 3 mid-season finale (in order to protect Paige, who is being framed by A), before finally explaining everything in the Halloween special. After that, Paige is actively involved with fighting A alongside the Liars (and Caleb).]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Averted. She had every reason to join Mona's army and for a second it seemed like she might have, but not only did she not join them, but she gave them a powerful speech about identity in order to try and persuade them to disband, and in a deleted scene was shown to be trying to break the group up from the inside, by trying to appeal to Lucas's love for Hanna, and she even tried to warn Emily about the army Mona was gathering for protection against Alison.
* MistakenForMurderer: By Spencer, Hanna and Aria (especially the first one).
* NearDeathExperience: She and Emily were almost killed [[spoiler: by Nathan]] in "The Lady Killer".
* NewOldFlame: To Emily in season 3.
* PassionateSportsGirl: Other than a competitive swimmer, she's apparently also a hockey player.
* StarCrossedLovers: with [[spoiler: Emily]]
* PutOnABus: After Emily breaks up with her at the end of season 1, Paige disappears.
* TransparentCloset: Fans supected her sexuality ever since her first appearance, before it was clarified.

Jason is the older brother of Alison [=DiLaurentis=].

Jason attended high school and was friends with Ian and Garrett, and returns to Rosewood after [[spoiler: Ian's]] death.

* BrotherSisterIncest: [[spoiler: He and Melissa hooked up before the series begin, and shortly afterwards he learns that they were half-siblings.]]
* EroticDream: Starred in one of Aria's dream fantasies.
* FrameUp: At the end of "Over my Dead Body", it was revealed that Jenna and Garret tried to make him think he killed his sister.
* HeelFaceTurn: After he's revealed to be [[spoiler: Spencer's half-brother.]] t's actually more probable that after his sister went missing was when he first turned, although the girls stop seeing him as suspicious when Spencer discovers that secret.
* MrFanservice: From Season 2 on due to being played by a more attractive actor.
* {{Otaku}}: In a flashback in Season 2, Jason gets angry at Alison. When Aria asks what was up, Alison says that he thought she had stolen "one of his Japanese cartoon porn books", implying he is (or was) a {{Hentai}} fan.
* OffScreenBreakup: With [=CeCe=], prior to the start of the series, and (judging from what we could see in one of the ''Pretty Dirty Secrets'' webisodes) it did not end up well.

* BlatantLies: she told Emily that she didn't know the "beach hottie" in Cape May is.
* CanonForeigner: [=CeCe=] does not appear in any of the books. [[spoiler: Though, she is somewhat based on the real Alison from the books.]]
* CompositeCharacter: She combines the backstory of Courtney from the books ([[spoiler: long-lost [=DiLaurentis=] sister who spent most of her youth stashed away in Radley]]) with the personality and role in the plot of Book!Alison ([[spoiler: murderous sociopath who torments the Liars as the second A]]).
* TheCorrupter: According to Jason she was a ''seriously'' bad influence on Alison.
* DaddyIssues: Much of her sociopathy is because her father refused to accept that she [[spoiler: is transgender]] and forced her to grow up away from her family.
* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: Of the HiddenVillain. [[spoiler: As A, she is initially presented as a dangerous ManipulativeBastard who can predict the Liars' every move and come up with the perfect counter-move.]] However, once her identity is revealed and all the intrigue stripped away, she comes off less as "cool" (like the typical HiddenVillain) and more as tragic and pitiful.

"''I'm still here bitches, and I know everything.''"

* BigBad: Both "A's" are the BigBad of their respective seasons.
* BigBadDuumvirate: Mona and [=CeCe=] shared the identity of "A" in Season 3A, before she fell into TheDragon. This is back into play now that we know Red Coat is Charles' accomplice.
* CatchPhrase: Tends to end her messages with "Bitch" or "bitches", though not quite to the point of being a VerbalTic.
* TheChessmaster: Manipulating, blackmailing, and threatening the girls with text messages.
* DarkIsEvil: "A" makes appearances as a figure with black leather gloves, a black hood, dark pants, and dark shoes.
* HiddenVillain: A is the main antagonist of the show as they constantly blackmail the girls and has even attempted to kill them on several occasions. Their identity still is a mystery.
* InTheHood: The infamous "A" costume is a black hoodie.
%%* LegacyCharacter:
%%* LimitedWardrobe
* ManipulativeBastard: Whoever takes this role (male or female) is clearly a skilled manipulator. Just ask the Liars.
* TheManBehindTheMan: To their followers.
* TheOmniscient: A has, on multiple occasions, demonstrated not only uncanny knowledge of people and their secrets, but actual prediction of future events. (Example: Emily picks a box of Alpha-Bits from the school cafeteria cereal selection, only to find that all of the pieces have been replaced with A's. Since we see no evidence that anyone else experienced this, that means that A not only knew that Emily would choose that brand of cereal, she knew exactly which box of it Emily would end up with.)
* OneLetterName: Just goes by '''A'''.
* TheReveal: In "[=UnmAsked=]", "A" is revealed to be [[spoiler: Mona Vanderwaal]]. She is sent to Radley Sanitarium for treatment, where [[spoiler: [=CeCe=] Drake]] began visiting her and took away the game.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: At times you wonder if A is really [[Series/BreakingBad Jesse Pinkman]].

* BigBadDuumvirate: Turns out she was actually this with [[spoiler: [=CeCe=]]], the seventh "A".
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Big time. She pretends to be an innocent and damaged victim of "A", claims to have run away from home and tells some sob story, and then ends up living, and eventually developing a relationship, with Emily. She's actually [[spoiler: Red Coat and the Black Widow, who is [=CeCe=]'s [[TheDragon Dragon]] and [[BigBadDuumvirate accomplice]] and Emily makes sure she pays for it.]]
* CanonForeigner: She doesn't appear in any of the books.
* CoolMask: Wears an Alison mask to hide her identity from even the A-Team. Though, "'A' Is for A-l-i-v-e" suggests that she just hangs around in it, even when its burned on one half.
* TheDragon: To [=CeCe=]. She's her second in command and top ally in the "A" games. She was also somewhat in a BigBadDuumvirate.
* DecoyAntagonist: More like Decoy BigBad, since she's definitely an antagonist. She's somewhat part of a BigBadDuumvirate with [=CeCe=], the real BigBad, and is her [[TheDragon Dragon]]. However, the two of them had Mona and the A-Team believing it was Sara in charge.
* HiddenVillain: Both her real identity and her disguises. The Liars assumed Red Coat was gone, just thought Black Widow was suspicious and never suspected Sara.
* InTheHood: Her infamous red coat has a hood. She may have also worn the black hoodie at times.
* LimitedWardrobe: Mostly seen in a red trench coat. Until it is revealed that she is [[spoiler: Sara Harvey, who was also the Black Widow]].
