* BlondesAreEvil: Like most of the characters, not truly evil, but certainly an antagonist.



* BlondesAreEvil: [[{{ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin}} Has blonde hair and is an antagonist.]]

* FragileSpeedster: Physically very weak, but Ermine doubts that even the Careers could catch up to him when heís running.



* FragileSpeedster: Not the best fighter, but she can outrun a bear and the Careers (though they ''were'' distracted by fighting Cuba.)

* AttackItsWeakPoint / ChekovsGun: While playing with a polar bear cub midway through the Games, she realizes the creatures are particularly sensitive on their snouts above their noses. This comes in handy later when she [[spoiler: saves Holland from the cub's vicious MamaBear.]]

* AwwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: A platonic version; he claims that Egypt is inferior to him due to his lack of fighting prowess, but becomes genuinely depressed after [[spoiler: he dies.]]

* AwwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Riben notices that, despite her harsh attitude towards him, Ermine genuinely cares about and even admires Italo - at least when he's not listening. This is proven, albeit in a depressing way, by [[spoiler: her HeroicBSOD after his death.]]

* FatherIDontWantToFight: He's not sold on the idea of the Games, and it's hinted he was pressured into training by his family, but volunteers so that none of his siblings will be expected to.



* [[spoiler: DisneyDeath]]: Right before the final battle of the Games, he falls through a crack in the ice and appears to be buried by an avalanche. It's revealed in the epilogue that [[spoiler: Turk, who seemed to have won the Games, died from his injuries and Riben was saved in time to make him the Victor.]]



* HistoryRepeats: This trope is written all over him. Not only is he [[spoiler: the young Dark Horse Victor brother of a previous dead tribute (just like Shiran)]], but he also [[spoiler: loses his ally to accidental poisoning]] just like he lost his sister years earlier. The Capitol invokes this when [[spoiler: they poison his loved ones as punishment for surviving the Games without a kill.]]



* IHaveNoSon: Hinted at throughout the Games that his father treats him in this way out of disgust for his depressed and reclusive nature. [[spoiler: Confirmed in the epilogue.]]



* LastSurvivorSuicide: [[spoiler: Defied in the epilogue. Although he has considered it, he canít bear to bring more violence upon anyone when his sister detested it so much.]]



* AwwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: A platonic version; he claims that Egypt is inferior to him due to his lack of fighting prowess, but becomes genuinely depressed after [[spoiler: he dies.]]



* DefeatMeansFriendship: He admits tributes he defeats in combat into his alliance, treating them as allies if he was impressed by their efforts and property if he wasn't. By the end of the Games, it's apparent he cares to some extent about both members of his alliance, particularly Romania.



* RedHerring: Appears to have [[spoiler: won the Games,]] but soon afterwards [[spoiler: dies of his wounds]], leaving [[spoiler: Riben the Victor.]]



* TeamChef / SupremeChef: Apparently he can make something more-than-decent out of fox carcasses, for crying out loud!

to:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Was originally supposed to be a ManipulativeBastard who used his apparent weakness to lull his allies into a false sense of security.



* NakedOnArrival: In his introductory chapter, his stylist makes him go to the chariot parade naked and covered in coal dust.



* WTHCostumingDepartment: So he thinks when his stylist makes him go naked to the chariot parade.

Added DiffLines:

* MsFanservice: Despite not particularly wanting to be seen as a sex symbol, she enforced this trope anyway in order to gain sponsorship and seduce the other careers (mostly Amantius) into doing what she wanted.


Added DiffLines:

* ReallyGetsAround: According to Yao, at least.


Added DiffLines:

* AndThenWhat: Her response to Turk when he suggests recruiting every other tribute into their alliance. He hadnít thought of that.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In her introductory chapter, Romania exhibits some hints of psychosis as she gleefully anticipates the bloody nature of the Games. This never recurs after the bloodbath, with her becoming a quirky but loyal ally to Turk, never fighting with intent to kill until the very end, and even showing reluctance to leave an unconscious Riben behind to die.


Added DiffLines:

* DefeatMeansFriendship: Or at least admittance into Turk's alliance.


Added DiffLines:

* MercyKill: Offered to do this to Nada, who was terrified of being slowly tortured to death by the Careers. Nada declined.


Added DiffLines:

* AxCrazy: When [[spoiler: attacking Cisca]] after [[spoiler: Italo's death]].
* AwwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Riben notices that, despite her harsh attitude towards him, Ermine genuinely cares about and even admires Italo - at least when he's not listening. This is proven, albeit in a depressing way, by [[spoiler: her HeroicBSOD after his death.]]
* BerserkButton: Don't hurt or threaten Italo around her.


Added DiffLines:

* AttackItsWeakPoint / ChekovsGun: While playing with a polar bear cub midway through the Games, she realizes the creatures are particularly sensitive on their snouts above their noses. This comes in handy later when she [[spoiler: saves Holland from the cub's vicious MamaBear.]]


Added DiffLines:

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Not completely horrible, but certainly naïve and overly trusting. When she allies with Holland towards the very end of the Games, she seems to expect their purely-survival-based bond to blossom into a friendship like it did during her last alliance. At one point, she misinterprets Hollandís warning that, if it comes down to it, she will kill her, as a warning that she (Holland) may die of her injuries. (To clarify: Holland says that Nada "should be more worried about the tribute next to her" than the Careers.) She also comes very close to breaking down when Holland more bluntly tells her the truth.
* NaïveEverygirl: See above.


Added DiffLines:

* NakedOnArrival: In her introductory chapter, her stylist makes her go to the chariot parade naked and covered in coal dust.
