I realize I forgot one of the most annoying players I've ever met :

The Realistic (a.k.a "Catgirls killer") :
Everyone know of them. They always try to bypass missed dices by arguing about the logic, physical coherence and credibility of the action. They always try to bring on real world numbers to flat out DMs decisions.
They never succeed.

The way they "play" the game is the way their char "should, in an imaginary utopic world, inconceivebly succeed at every single time and occasion".
Of course, that never happens and then they get kicked out.
Had to deal with those a couple of times, but thankfully the groups I run now don't have one.

Scroll Case: has everything planned to the letter, including several back-up plans for when the players go off rails. Has the stats and fluff for every random npc you are likely to run into. If you probe deep enough, you can find the whole life story of all of the city guard, the guard rotation, their kids, their pets, and which shops they frequent. You should probe that deep, since it will make this guy happy.

Saturday night at the improv: has nothing planned, never does. Often times there are no stats at all, he rolls dice and sees how he feels about them. If you roll a 22 and hit, and you buddy rolls a 23 and misses, and nothing changed inbetween, you might be dealing with this guy.

Yertle the turtle: thinks he's scroll case, but he spends so much time flipping MM pages during combat, that you can finish your turn, go to the quicktrip, buy some food, and come back before your next turn.
I think I might be a Scroll Case... or a Creationist depending on if the game is one of my long runs or not.

The Marine; The player who tries everything once and who has an Adapt and Overcome mindset that s/he applies to the PC all the time.

Had three of those in two different states.
