\n* WhatAnIdiot: The Glader policy of absolute secrecy and disdain towards greenies leaves a lot to be desired. For example, when Thomas has just been dumped in the glade and is greeted by its inhabitants.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' This being a song and dance all these characters are well acquainted with, Thomas would be sat down (by force if necessary), then told in detail the exact conditions of his new life. It is in their absolute best interests to make sure every new person that pops up becomes a contributing member of their society after all.\\
'''Instead:''' The characters outright refuse to tell Thomas anything until "the tour" and respond with disproportionate hostility to his questioning. There is no benefit to anyone to just leave new arrivals in the dark, especially when everyone is ostensibly working towards the same goal of '''leaving the maze'''. Instead of every member of the Glade using their noggin to solve the problem, only a select few are entrusted to actually even attempt to solve the maze while everyone else twiddles their thumbs in ignorance. The real kicker is that unlike the movie, this is never really brought up after Thomas becomes a runner. No explanation is given to why the Gladers ostracize newcomers outside of not wanting to hear a thousand questions.

** Also in the Scorch Trials, almost any character who isn't [[Protagonist Thomas]], [[TheLancer Minho]], [[TheChick Brenda]], Aris, [[BigFun Frypan]] or Newt gets no description, no significant dialogue and not even ''names''. Out of the 20 Gladers the book [[DwindlingParty starts with]], Thomas interacts with almost none of them. Non-Glader characters are only referred to by the most prominent feature on their body (Blondie, Ratman[[note]] Assistant Director Janson who actually does go on to become a major character being the exception[[/note]], etc). The author really wasn't concerned about introducing new or particularly memorable characters.
** In The Death Cure, the revelation that [[spoiler]] Teresa and the other escapade Gladers were captured immediately after getting to Denver and accomplished absolutely nothing after being off page for two-thirds of the book.[[/spoiler]] is a bit disappointing.

** In The Scorch Trials, take a shot every time a chapter includes or ends with Thomas passing out and/or falling asleep. It gets to the point where the vast majority of character interactions and, frankly, plot development are all offscreen while the reader is treated to some more flashback dreams.

* MagnificentBitch: Dr. Ava Paige is the intelligent and ruthless Chancellor of WICKED. As revealed in ''The Fever Code'', she rose to power by manipulating Thomas and his friends into murdering several members of WICKED's high command. When Thomas suggested inserting Teresa and himself into the Maze Trials with their memories intact, she pretended to go along with the plan, only to betray him and wipe his and Teresa's memories anyways. Throughout the first two books, her machinations begin to come into play, as the test subjects for the Maze Trials are put into various situations in order to study their neurological patterns. By the end of the series, Paige accepts that a cure to the Flare will never come, and provides Thomas and his friends with a safe haven to rebuild humanity in.


* EnsembleDarkhorse: If you ask a Maze Runner fan who their favorite character is, 9/10 times they will say [[StoicWoobie Newt]]. Thanks to his [[FountainOfMemes memorable one-liners]], [[BungledSuicide tragic backstory]], and [[TheHeart likable personality]] (the fact that he's played by [[PrettyBoy Thomas Brodie-Sangster]] doesn't hurt either), he has a ton of [[EstrogenBrigade fangirls]], and even critics of the characters have said he was one of the few they liked. [[DeadpanSnarker Minho]] is also one to a lesser extent.

[[DeadpanSnarker Minho]] is also one to a lesser extent.


* CompleteMonster: [[DragonInChief Assistant Director Janson]], debuting in [[Film/MazeRunnerTheScorchTrials the second film]], is a cold, self-serving man who serves as the chief operative of WCKD, helping to oversee the Maze experiments with many dozens of children immune to the Flare virus exposed to the horrors of WCKD's Mazes, with countless numbers of them killed. Trying to trick the survivors into letting their organs be harvested under the false pretense of giving them refuge, and later aiding in an attack on the Right Arm while personally executing Mary, one of their leaders, Janson comes into his own in ''[[Film/MazeRunnerTheDeathCure The Death Cure]]'', where he becomes even more ruthless in trying to procure a cure to the Flare. Janson orders a crowd of protesters fired on by cannons to get at Thomas, smugly implores Thomas to shoot Teresa when he takes her at gunpoint, and having Thomas's friend Minho exposed to [[MindRape horrible, potentially lethal psychological experiments]] to lure him out. Janson ultimately [[spoiler:murders WCKD's head Dr. Paige]] himself and, with the cure revealed to be in Thomas's blood, reveals his true goal to [[AGodAmI build a future of his own design]] by selecting who gets to be cured while leaving all the rest of humanity to be driven insane and slowly die from the Flare. Even in an organization of mad scientists with little regards to [[WellIntentionedExtremist how far they have to plunge to root out a cure to the Flare]], Janson stands out as an utter sociopath with no scruples or benevolent intentions whatsoever. Furthermore, after Teresa betrays him and attempts to escape with Thomas, Janson becomes even more ruthless and unhinged while still retaining an eerily calm demeanor, showing joy and pleasure in hunting Thomas and Teresa down. Even after he catches Teresa and acquires the cure, Janson still intends to kill Teresa and Thomas, despite having what he wants, showing a clear degree of sadism and complete insanity.
