The short lunch lady is a 2011-introduced and fiction-only character. She is an unspecified kind of monster and one of the two lunch ladies at Monster High along with her colleague. She usually has a smile ready for the students, but only if the favor is returned. Students who act out of line, whether to her or to her colleagues, swiftly learn she isn't all smile and patience.
The short lunch lady is not much of a talker and doesn't take bad attitude from the students either. She can be highly vengeful if slighted and hates being corrected, but she's not one to forget gestures of kindness.
The short lunch lady and the tall lunch lady are birds of a feather and like each other's company.
The short lunch lady serves food in the creepateria.She serves lunch again. She serves lunch some more.
When Manny Taur comes crashing into the creepateria and nearly tramples over Van Hellscream and Headless Headmistress Bloodgood, the short lunch lady protects them. After throwing the student an angered look, he makes his retreat.
- In "Bad Scare Day", Hackington served lunch in the creepateria. This was before the short lunch lady was introduced. However, Hackington again concerned himself with food in "Fear-A-Mid Power", suggesting that among his many tasks at Monster High he also is the lunch ladies' occasional colleague and emergency replacement.
- The short lunch lady's design is based on that of the lunch ladies on the cover of a Monster Beat magazine in "New Ghoul @ School". The short lunch lady looks much like the one on the left side of the cover, but she's slightly more detailed and thinner.
