* BewareTheNiceOnes: Her response to cavemen kidnapping her grandfather was to jump on the back of one and start attacking it. Granted, she didn't succeed in defeating him but right there it was established she will resort to violence if pushed too far.

* TheDitz: It's been joked that she's called Dodo because her brain cells went extinct.



* IdiotBall: It's been joked that she's called Dodo because of her lack of intelligence.


Added DiffLines:

* TheMillstone: One of the least intelligent companions the Doctor's ever been saddled with. In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E6TheArk The Ark]]" she nearly wipes out the remnants of humanity by giving them her cold (which they have no immunity to). In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E7TheCelestialToymaker The Celestial Toymaker]]" Steven reminds her of what her plan is three or four times and she still forgets it at the crunch time. In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E8TheGunfighters The Gunfighters]]" she nearly shoots Doc Holliday before the gunfight at the OK Corral.


Added DiffLines:

* TheMillstone: In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E1Castrovalva Castrovalva]]", he allies himself with The Master after being captured by him, and in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E5Earthschock Earthshock]]", the whole plot is kicked off by him arguing with the Doctor over wanting to return to his home planet [[spoiler:which eventually results in his death]].

* PluckyGirl: In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS2E8TheChase The Chase]]" she ''stows away aboard a Dalek time machine'' and when confronted by armed Saxon villagers, tells them to hurry up and make up their minds whether she and Steven are spies or not.

to:

* PluckyGirl: PluckyGirl:
** She was orphaned by a space accident, and we meet her after she's been stranded on an isolated desert planet awaiting a rescue mission while being psychologically terrorised by a repugnant monster with unclear motivations who turns out to be a man she thought was her friend in disguise - she'd still been making the best of it, by befriending the local wildlife. After the Doctor takes her on she will have occasional scenes where she will remind the others of what she's lost and that the Doctor is now her only family, but is mostly resolute and cheerful, happy to take the lead in a crisis (like in "The Space Museum"), and with a big scoop of NightmareFetishist and FluffyTamer to boot.

* AbortedArc: Had the show not been placed on hiatus, the Doctor would have enrolled Ace in ''the Time Lord Academy'' so she could undergo training to become a Time Lord. The planned episode dealing with this plan, "Thin Ice," was eventually recorded by ''Creator/BigFinish'' in audio format, and Ace eventually gets into Time Lord Academy in the Big Finish ''AudioPlay/{{Gallifrey}}'' series under Romana's presidency. A version of this also happens in the BBC webcast audio play ''Death Comes To Time''.

** Possibly subverted if the reason the Doctor thought he was the LastOfHisKind is because Susan was on Gallifrey at the end of the Time War. If that's the case, now that it's been [[TheReveal revealed]] that the Doctor managed to save Gallifrey in a frozen moment in time rather than destroying it it's possible that Susan's still alive.
