!!Nurse Mary
->'''Played By''': Miranda Richardson

* AssholeVictim: Given her distain for most of her patients and her attempts to frame Darling as a spy ForTheLulz, being convicted herself almost seems karmic [[spoiler: if still incorrect]].
* HiddenDistainReveal: Blackadder discovers her true self when she snides about George's idiocy in closed quarters.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Plays simple cloying nurse in public, alone she's almost as witty as Blackadder.
* RedHerring: [[spoiler: Blackadder, through elaborate deduction, had her convicted as a spy. It was in fact an unwitting George sending information to his German relatives.]]

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Perfectly polite and affable if you're not [[TheUnfavourite Edmund]]. He's even implied to treat [[CampGay Doncaster]] with respect.

Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneHasStandards: Despite his own contemptuous streak, he shows a fair degree more restraint than previous Blackadders, who would outright murder out of petty spite. In particular during "General Hospital", Nurse Mary is perfectly willing to frame his nemesis Darling as a spy. For all Edmund loathed Darling, and tormented him earlier concerning it, he debunks this in favour of convicting who he believes is the real spy, and instantly attempts to amend the problem when he discovers in horror ''that'' was incorrect.

* StrawLoser: Intellect wise at least. While his era's Edmund is much more of a buffoon, he almost reaches his predecessor's level of snarky wit when putting up with Percy's greater idiocy.



* DitzyGenius: A transitional Blackadder, having gained a lot of cunning and suave that would grow with each of his predecessors, but still having some blithering, pitiful shades of the previous Edmund.



* NervesOfSteel: Much unlike his cowardly great-grandfather to the point of casual talk about his potential dismemberment.

to:

* NervesOfSteel: Much unlike his cowardly great-grandfather to the point of casual talk about his potential dismemberment. Subverted a few times against [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queenie]] however, he spends the final half of "Head" on the verge of a breakdown.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Overhears Edmund making some obviously empty threats against him, and so gets Edmund, Baldrick and Percy all sentenced to burn at the stake.

Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: Depicted as a sadistic maniac who falsely accuses and burns people for witchcraft in droves, either [[DisproportionateRetribution intentionally out of personal spite]] or [[InsaneTrollLogic just pure lunacy]]. [[spoiler: He ends up burned alive by what is heavily implied to be real witchcraft he overlooked.]]

* HistoricalVillainDowngrade: The real Manfred von Richthofen was a WW 1 cavalry officer who trained as a pilot once it became clear that cavalry was obsolete, and who then insisted on being a fighter pilot because he didn't want to fly transports, and who then became the highest-scoring ace of the war, with 80 confirmed victories. He once flew his plane ''through a thunderstorm'' just to see what it was like, and commented afterwards that he was lucky to get away with it and wouldn't do it again unless ordered to. When he was killed, he wasn't even properly shot down: he was fatally wounded in the chest and went on to ''land his plane'' with only light damage, before dying in his seat. The fictional Richthofen is an idiot Bond villain type who gets shot. Much funnier, though.

* Flanderization: In Blackadder II, Baldrick merely found turnips amusing phallic symbols. In this series the acquisition of turnips is his entire raison d'etre.
