* AntiVillain: She's [[HighQueen decent to her own subjects]] and does have [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil a perfectly good reason]] to hate Conchobar mac Nessa. However she is still egotistical, hypocritical, and willing to get thousands killed for revenge, and is not unwilling to use family members like chess pieces.

* DarkActionGirl: Doesn't get much darker and action-y than her.

to:

* DarkActionGirl: Doesn't get much darker and action-y than her. Though morally she's usually more of a [[UnscrupulousHero very]] [[NominalHero dark]] antihero than a villain.



** This has also come from the opposite direction of her being imagined as a sort of evil proto-Satan/Demon and/or sadistic pychopath. While it's hard to argue that she's not bloodthirsty she also does reward people who pass her tests, does not only represent death but also fertility (with some theories that she represents the cycle of life itself), most of her kills were other warriers who already fighting on the battlefield, and you ''usually'' have to do something [[TooDumbToLive directly against her]] to actually piss her off (though she could be somewhat arbitary at times).
* KickTheDog: Some of her punishments are this, especially if the victim doesn't really have it coming.



* PetTheDog: When she rewards someone. She also offered Cu Chulainn immortality but he turned it down.




to:
