- Straight Man: The comedic foil to the resident joker, who doesn't get to do the silly antics themselves but their dynamic with the Plucky Comic Relief's antics makes the act more hilarious. The character doesn't have to be the protagonist or even a main character, and usually have a distinct personality that opposes the Plucky Comic Relief (e.g. The Stoic, Deadpan Snarker, etc).
- Designated Protagonist Syndrome: The story's protagonist is deliberately not given any distinct personality so that the audience can relate to them better, and to emphasize the supporting characters' quirks.
