** Sam’s Parents/Pam and Jeremy: In their big debut, “Control Freaks”. They gave their own daughter cold glares just because of her personality. They immediately judged Danny five seconds after meeting. Eventually, they had to get a restraint order against because they solely believed he was a “bad influence” to Sam. And, they even think that Jack and Maddie are no better, going far as to judge them just by their usual attire.

* JackassGenie: Desiree is an odd example in that she's somewhat a mix of [[BenevolentGenie all]] [[LiteralGenie three]] archetypes. While she started out as a benevolent genie soon after her passing, she quickly became embittered and resentful toward the people whose wishes she granted, as they would always end up with wonderful lives while she was cursed to eternally be the slave to anyone who happened to wish something within earshot of her. However, she's not completely able to twist a person's wish against them, as shown during the times Danny fought her. If a person's wish is specific enough, she has no choice but to grant it the way they want it.

Added DiffLines:

* HolidayCeasefire: The ghosts have a rule that fighting is not allowed during Christmas. They're furious when they find out that the Ghost Writer broke the rule and attacked Danny (even going so far as to [[EnemyMine team up with Danny]] to teach him a lesson).

* HumiliationConga: After Danny shows no remorse for destroying a Christmas poem, the Ghost Writer traps him INSIDE a Christmas poem until he learns the value of Christmas.

* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Early in the series, Valerie was cruel, selfish, and mean-spirited like her popular friends. However, her descent into unpopularity begins to change her into a nicer, less egotistical person to the people around her, making new, better friends while looking upon her former "friends" with disdain and disgust. She also becomes more compassionate and caring, going from just wanting to get revenge on ghosts like Danny to endangering herself to protect Amity Park from ghost attacks.
