* IconicOutfit: Norma's red baseball cap in the '76 version, which she is never seen without -- she wears it to prom, and even ''at the hairdresser'', where it's sitting atop her hair dryer. Reportedly, this was P. J. Soles' idea.

Added DiffLines:

** One of the songs in the Brian DePalma film soundtrack is called "I Never Dreamed Someone Like You Could Love Someone Like Me", a touch on the nose.

** BrainlessBeauty: Both film adaptations retain his niceness, but turn him into this for no readily apparent reason. Rather, the 2013 version doesn't mention his grades, but he does seem sincere when he compliments Carrie's poem.

* DawsonCasting: According to Edie [=McClurg=] herself, she was in her 30's when she filmed the movie. Chelan, however, is actually an inversion as, even though she was 20 when the '02 film came out, she was probably about 18 or 19 when she filmed it.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Part of his appeal to Chris is the fact that he's aggressive and abusive. The book says that part of the reason Chris is with him is because she's used to manipulating other boys, but Billy is the only one she hasn't been able to do that with. This is arguably inverted in the 1976 film, where Chris is the bad girl to Billy's IneffectualSympatheticVillain.

* ChristianityIsCatholic: In the '76 film, a lot of the religious iconography that shows up in her house is Catholic, even though it's strongly implied in the book that her beliefs are rooted in fundamentalist Protestantism of the old-time Puritan variety, which has... issues with the Catholic Church. Averted in the 2013 version, where she quotes some decidedly bizarre and skewed scripture that Carrie claims isn't in the bible. She'd probably know though.

* WomanInBlack: In the novel, she usually wears black clothing. She's evil, of course.
** In the '76 film she not only wears black, ''she wears a black cape.''

* {{Badass}}: The stuff she can pull off makes her easily qualified.
** BadassAdorable: The version portrayed by Creator/ChloeMoretz is just so small, cuddly and cute you'd wanna [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe take her home with you]] too.
