* TheDitz: In a way. Although Shirley is very book-smart and gets top marks in school, Milly Ashford loves to tease her that she can think of nothing beyond her feelings for Lelouch, when there's a wholÀ[=Æ=]Ide world out there full of wonderful (and terrible) things. Most of the mockery is just [[DeadpanSnarker Milly being Milly]], but likely some is Milly's [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend half-sublimated jealousy]]. Shirley's [[CuteClumsyGirl klutziness]] further contributes to her general ditzy feel.

* SheKnowsTooMuch: [[spoiler:After [[FanNickname Orange-kun]]'s Geass-canceler undoes her FakeMemories, Shirley remembers that Nunnally, not Rolo, is Lelouch's sibling. So Rolo, both [[{{Yandere}} disturbed by the mention of Nunnally's name]] ''and'' also realizing that she could potentially blow his cover, does as he has done before with people who have too much knowledge: he either stabd or shoots her.]]

* StarCrossedLovers: With Lelouch. At least from ''her'' point of view. Lelouch has a lot of options, and Shirley isn't really high among them because he cares fo her but doesn't want her in danger, even if she is technically more successful. [[spoiler:Too bad that didn't pan out.]]

*** In a EntertaininglyWrong variation of the SecretSecretKeeper trope, she helped him to hide his supposed peculiarities by discreetly disposing the recipe of the mail-ordered gothic lolita(?) outfit C.C. used in the episodes 14-15 of the first season.

* NinjaMaid: The trope picture, even. Although when Rolo calls her a ninja, she corrects him, and calls herself an SP - a reference to Japan's Police division dedicated to bodyguard duties, itself heavily based on the American Secret Service. She just happens to have weapons similar to those a ninja would use.

While not an especially important character early in the series, Nina does garner a certain amount of attention from ''Code Geass'' watchers. Mostly [[TheScrappy hatred]]. A [[ShrinkingViolet pathologically shy student]] at the Ashford Academy whose family is involved in the war industry, Nina is one of the more openly racist Britannians on the show (which apparently comes from [[AllThereInTheManual being left behind in a Japanese ghetto all alone as a kid and ending up traumatised by what she witnessed there]]), and is willing to [[TooDumbToLive throw out racial insults to men with guns]]. She is obsessed with Princess Euphemia li Britannia, to the point of [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbating using a table to pictures of her]]. [[CargoShip Poor Table-kun.]] On the bright side, [[GadgeteerGenius her scientific and engineering skills]] are almost a match for Lelouch's planning.

* UnrequitedTragicMaiden
* WideEyedIdealist: A unique example in the series: Shirley loves everyone and just wants them to get along -- yet she also shows a willful -- indeed, blind -- lack of interest in politics or current events. (Perhaps TruthInTelevision for someone her age, but in a series [[ImprobableAge where some of her (underage) classmates are members of the army and others are terrorist masterminds]], and the rest have at least chosen sides, it sets her apart.) Shirley is also ''literally'' a wide-eyed idealist: she has the largest eyes (and irises) of any major character in all of ''Anime/CodeGeass''. (Princess Euphemia, another WideEyedIdealist, seems to be in second place. See BigEyesLittleEyes, above.) At any rate, her combination of sweet, friendly, openness with her lack of interest in the larger world gets her [[LesYay lovingly]] but [[DeadpanSnarker ferociously mocked]] by her friend and resident (figurative) CoolBigSis Milly Ashford. (See also TheDitz, above.) If only the problems with this stopped right there...

to:

* UnrequitedTragicMaiden
UnrequitedTragicMaiden: At first it's PlayedForLaughs since her initial mishaps are portrayed as comical, then for intense drama with a side dish of BreakTheCutie when [[spoiler: Lelouch causes her father's death ''and'' Mao {{mind rape}}s her.]] And right when it looks like she ''may'' have the chance to get Lelouch's love... [[spoiler: BAM! Accidentally saying the wrong thing in front of a deeply screwed-up and ''completely unpredictable'' guy, fatal injury to the gut, pool of her own blood, death in front of Lelouch.]]

[[spoiler: In fact, she ''was'' about to gain some of Rolo's trust or at least walk away from him with her life, but then she mentioned Nunnally without knowing that [[BerserkButton it'd make him flip out]]...]]



* WrongGenreSavvy: ...which they don't. Tragically, she was stuck in one of the farthest things from shoujo, making her idealism contrast all the more, [[spoiler:and her fate all the more tragic]]. Just two episodes after her proclamation of ThePowerOfLove, and right after she seemingly consummates her one true love, [[spoiler:[[KillTheCutie she gets mercilessly killed off]]]]. All the more [[{{Irony}} tragically ironic]] in that said power also had just earlier inspired Lelouch as Zero to make his inspiring speech about the Power of Passion after he and the Black Knights liberated China, and may have also saved Lelouch from falling into madness, [[spoiler:and his eventual [[DespairEventHorizon self-induced]] [[SuicideByCop demise]] via [[ThanatosGambit Zero Requiem]] if not for Shirley's murder]].

* {{Badass}}:
** WordOfGod says that in a contest between her and Suzaku, she would win. The only reason they didn't show it is that such a contest wouldn't really fit with the show.
** She even gave [[spoiler:Jeremiah]] a run for his money in a straight up fight, [[spoiler:[[TookALevelInBadass even]] ''[[TookALevelInBadass after]]'' [[TookALevelInBadass his cyborg modifications]], managing to land a few hits on him before his priorly unknown [[AntiMagic Anti-Geass abilities]] allowed him to catch her off guard.]]

** Basically the only important think Rivalz does is drive Lelouch to his gambling games, which kicks off the start of the series. After that, nothing he does matters to the plot.
