* HeWhoFightsMonsters: In her quest to take down Comstock and everything he stands for, she becomes exactly what he always claimed her to be.
** [[spoiler:Subverted in Burial at Sea, where it's revealed that while she didn't really want the revolution to be civil she didn't want it be ''too violent'' either, and that she never actually believed in murdering the Founders children.]]



* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Declaring Booker an enemy for "confusing the narrative." Definitely [[spoiler:when she tries to kill Fink's son simply for being the child of a Founder]].
** However, [[spoiler: ''Burial at Sea: Episode Two'' reveals that not only was it an act, she initially refused to go through with it, refusing to hold Fink's son accountable for his father's actions. She only agreed after the Luteces tell her that she'd be killed before she could go through with it and that her sacrifice would strengthen Elizabeth's resolve to take down Comstock once and for all]].

* NotSoDifferent: Both Booker and Elizabeth note she's Comstock by another name. Of course, she would die rather than admit it.

** Well Subverted in the end. See ''Burial at Sea'', [[spoiler:where it's revealed through audio diaries that she had reservations about a starting a violent revolution (even though she felt her hand had been somewhat forced) because she knew innocents may be harmed and that her "soldiers" would go too far. In the end she was more like Emma Goldman than Pol Pot, but the loose coordination of her organization and later her death would keep her from keeping a handle on the Vox armies' more disgusting actions.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SheWhoFightsMonsters: In her quest to take down Comstock and everything he stands for, she becomes exactly what he always claimed her to be. Played with in Burial at Sea, where it's revealed that while she didn't really want the revolution to be civil she didn't want it be ''too violent'' either. Though she did try to kill Booker because his being alive didn't fit her narrative. Subverted in the case of trying to kill Fink's son; she never actually believed in murdering the Founders' children and was faking the attempt in the first place.

* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:If she even qualifies as a villain at all, given the revelations of ''Burial at Sea: Episode Two''.]]

to:

* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:If She turns on Booker immediately after he completes her quest and leads a revolution against Columbia, which generally involves mass murder and setting buildings to blaze. Additionally, she even qualifies as a villain proves more than willing to kill children in order to achieve her goals. However, she's got REALLY good reasons to hate Comstock's group and she's at all, given least well-meaning and she only went through with the revelations of ''Burial at Sea: Episode Two''.]]attempt on the child in question's life because the Luteces A: put her up to it and B: they assured her that she would be killed by Elizabeth before she could actually hurt the kid.

* DamselInDistress: Booker needs to save her at the beginning of the game. [[spoiler: She also willingly gives herself to Songbird towards the end of the game, and Booker needs to save her. However it is downplayed the second time, as she saves herself as soon as Booker turns off the machine and frees her.]]



** DamselInDistress: That said, Booker still needs to save her at the beginning of the game.

However it is downplayed the second time, as she saves herself as soon as Booker turns off the machine and frees her.]]

** This arguably applies to Booker in the game's ending. It is ultimately left up to players to decide.

* NeverMyFault: Comstock has severe trouble facing his own guilt, to the point that this is arguably his most defining trait. [[spoiler:He only ''exists'' because he's a version of Booker that accepted baptism and created a new identity to bury his guilt over Wounded Knee]]. Driving the point home further, [[spoiler:Burial at Sea features an alternate Comstock who accidentally killed Elizabeth when he tried to take her from her own world, and then had the Luteces move him to another world so that he could escape his guilt over that, too.]]

A bounty hunter who is employed by the Founders to track down Daisy Fitzroy. He never actually appears in the game, but multiple audio diaries by him can be found, which show his gradual shift from being a bounty hunter for Comstock [[spoiler:to a member of the Vox]]. A model of him is also quite obviously used for Fink's head of security.

** BadassAbnormal: Over the course of the game, by way of Vigors and Nostrums.


Added DiffLines:

* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Other Bioshock protagonists [[HeroicMime didn't talk]] and had no real indication of personality other than how the player chose to treat Little Sisters. Booker is neither of these things.

Added DiffLines:

* RevengeBeforeReason: In ''Burial at Sea.'' [[spoiler:Her killing of Comstock in Episode 1 is established to be a case of this in Episode 2. Her main motivation for going back to save Sally is that Comstock was legitimately trying to save her from the life of a Little Sister and Elizabeth not only exploited this to murder him, but also left Sally behind to rot when she was done.]]
