* TookALevelInJerkass: After Season 1, Diane gets noticeably ruder and more selfish--causing Sam no end of headaches as his off-again on-again girlfriend (which culminates in publicly humiliating him into proposing to her under threat of jail-time,) temporarily ruining Frasier's life and refusing to even apologize until way later, and even her demeanor towards many of the regulars at Cheers becomes more barbed and condescending than in the first season. She still has moments of kindness, but it's all too clear that she thinks more or herself than anyone else.

* BatmanGambit / ShipperOnDeck: Coach wants to see Sam and Diane get married - his fantasy of their union involves him ''living'' with them. He was visibly distressed in Season 3 when he saw Frasier and Diane dating, so much so that he began to employ this on Sam, Diane, and Frasier. He privately tells Sam that if Diane doesn't work at the bar, she'll go mentally ill again. He privately tells Diane that if she doesn't work at the bar, Sam'll hit the bottle the second she leaves. He then privately tells Frasier than if she doesn't work at the bar, she'll fantasize about Sam, and if they work at the bar, they'll continually snipe and start hating each other.

* NeverMyFault: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] for much of Season Four, where she doesn't seem willing to admit that Frasier's bitterness towards her for leaving him at the altar (after a long and drawn out relationship between them, with her still having strong feelings for Sam) was particularly warranted, going so far as to blame Frasier (in "Woody Goes Belly Up") for loving her in the first place. It's implied at points that the guilt was so overwhelming she just couldn't face it, although she does apologize to Frasier for hurting him in "Strange Bedfellows, Part II" as well as trying to again in her appearance in ''Frasier'', after it looked as if she was once again brushing off how cruel what she did was.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Diane often tries her best to verbally [[SubvertedTrope subvert]] this trope--convincing few around her. When she tells Cliff in "Cliffie's Big Score" that women as a rule prefer "sweet and vulnerable" guys, Cliff isn't too reassured, leading to this [[DiscussedTrope exchange]]:

* BreakTheCutie: Poor girl goes through a lot of these, often overlapping with her BreakTheHaughty moments (see: below). For all her stuffiness, Diane also has a sweetness and innocence that naturally sets her up for this sort of thing. [[WideEyedIdealist Her desires always being heartfelt]] doesn't hurt, either:
--> "I am a feeling person. And I can communicate those feelings to you through dance. So, judge me not by what my arms and legs are doing. Judge me by what I make you feel. But most importantly, ''judge me''." ''(eyes welling up)'' "For I must dance! ''Damn it, I must''!"

* [[ByronicHero Byronic Heroine]]: Diane is practically [[RomanticismVersusEnlightenment Romanticism personified]], often angsts about her place in the world, and is at times self-reflective to the point of narcissism. She's typically far too sweet and pleasant-natured to cross into "dark/brooding" or "ItsAllAboutMe" territory, though.



* DistractedByTheSexy: An occasional running gag has our girl telling Sam that she's ''above'' such things as falling for mere physical attractiveness--only to find herself helpless at the sight of an ''extremely'' handsome guy.

* DramaQueen: She's such a little girl, at heart--which remains apparent even as far forward as her appearance in ''[=Frasier=]''. While it's a significant part of her charm--it's also caused poor Sam in particular (and often Frasier) no small amount of headaches. In particular, she often makes a big deal over little things, at times driven to angry tears while ranting about how disgracefully someone's just acted.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with.]] Diane had very strained relations with the gang sometimes--Carla moreso than most, though that might have been partly due to envy over Diane's relationship with Sam. Diane's true allies at the bar sometimes seems limited to Coach (with whom Diane had a surrogate father-daughter relationship) and later Woody (see LikeBrotherAndSister, below). Still, she has enough HeartwarmingMoments with the others to keep this trope from truly solidifying with her.

However, during her acceptance speech, she keeps getting interrupted by the emcee telling her about the prizes she won. When she learns she won an all-expenses paid trip to Bermuda, she screams joyfully, "'''''BERMUDA?!?!''''' I'm going to ''BERMUDA''!!!" and behaves like a normal contest winner (to Sam's delight and Carla's disgust).
