Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyBrown: One could easily assume he is Indian due to his skin tone and his Buddhist theme attire and abilities. However, its vaguely implied that he is European due to his name having Irish origin.

* DependingOnTheArtist: Pretty much everything about Demitri's appearance from the neck up varies greatly from depiction to depiction. His eyes can be relatively normal-looking with red irises or pupils or they can be [[MonochromaticEyes completely red or completely white]], he may or may not have CreepyShadowedUndereyes, his facial features may be fairly soft or they may be craggy and angular, and his hair can be anything from a smooth sweep back to a single point to a vertically-standing crown of spikes. And this is all within official art.

Added DiffLines:

* YourSoulIsMine: The Demitri VS Belial short story published in ''Gamest'' states that Demitri was actually able to succeed at what Jedah had [[PhlebotinumOverload died]] trying to do: boosting his power by absorbing souls from the portal to the human world. How did he manage to avoid PhlebotinumOverload? [[MundaneSolution He absorbed them little by little over time rather than trying to absorb a whole bunch at once.]] This actually augmented his power enough that he became a serious threat to Belial, but it ended up backfiring on him when Belial tore away the part of Makai containing the portal and Demitri's castle and flung it into the human realm.

* {{Flanderization}}: Although she was always a sexy character, she was originally fairly reserved about it. She wore a [[{{Stripperiffic}} revealing]] outfit and some of her winquotes were a bit [[SexIsViolence provocative]], but that was about it. However by the time of ''Darkstalkers 3'' she and Lilith were [[LesYay embracing nude in official art]], and then ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfSuperHeroes Marvel vs. Capcom]]'' turned things UpToEleven with MaleGaze portraits, UsefulNotes/{{BDSM}} winposes, and a [[OutWithABang super attack (Eternal Slumber) which involved molesting the opponent behind a curtain as boudoir music played.]] Though on a lighter note, some other portrayals make her a bit of [[{{Adorkable}} dorky]] than meets the eye with her liking for video games and whatnot (see below).

* MechaTropes: Between the [[ThisIsADrill drills]], [[JetPack verniers]], and [[MacrossMissileMassacre missile volleys]], she seems to have quite a few abilities that hearken back to classic mecha anime conventions. Even her Soul Fist involves a rather RocketPunch-esque pose and her wings becoming something similar to the Zeta Gundam's tail fin.

Her Soul Eraser move from the ''Vs.'' games also involves literal laser cannons.



** Played up extensively in ''Pocket Fighter''. There, Morrigan's goal is to prove to the world that she's the strongest and [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman most beautiful woman]] out there, so she challenges [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun-Li]], the current title-holder for both claims, in a battle of female supremacy. In the end, Morrigan is victorious, but ultimately loses out to none other than Lilith, who unwittingly attracts the guys away from her sister.

* EraSpecificPersonality: The Hsien-Ko from ''Night Warriors'' is formal and quite serious in her determination to avenge her and Mei-Ling's mother, while the Hsien-Ko from all following games, who is the previous one's reincarnation, acts more like an average teenage girl who, even after realizing her destiny, sometimes does get freaked out with the bizarre occurrences around her. The same goes for Mei-Ling.
