I have a few more

Drama Queen DBA: Every little thing is a big deal and requires a tantrum. They have to look at and review everything. This makes them a bottleneck for everyone else. If they see something they may not like they send an email and CC 20 people to demands answers to their questions.

Over Engineer DBA: You have a small database that is rarely used. The DBA demands 38 LUNs be set up so he can personally put every last file on a differnet lun for optimal performance. Takes him weeks to do all this. The performance increase is negligible, but it is so complex, the DBA now appears to be the expert.

Everything has to be done in the database DBA: There is 1 DBA and 5 developers. The DBA is the only one he considers qualified to write pl/sql. They insist on every line of SQL in the database and only he can do it. This type of DBA is related to #1 and #2 by blood lines that go back 1,000 years.
