* CharacterTitle: The show is called ''Grey's Anatomy'' for a reason.



** To elaborate: [[spoiler: she has a DisappearedDad, a famous surgeon mother who was very cold towards her and believed her to be average. Then, when she joins Seattle Grace as a surgeon, she has to deal with even more hardships which stretch the lines of a medical soap opera. This includes stopping a bomb with her finger during surgery, witnessing her husband get shot, being held at gunpoint, miscarrying, losing her husband in a car crash, being assaulted by a patient. At one point, she ''died'' (though [[OnlyMostlyDead got better]])]].



* AdvertisedExtra: In season 1, anyway. There was a recurring nurse that had more screentime than him at the time. After season 1, this became a non-issue.
* CharacterDevelopment: Went from a {{Jerkass}} intern at the hospital to much more well-mannered man who displayed more empathy towards his co-workers and patients. He even became Meredith's person after Cristina's departure, and these guys didn't exactly see eye-to-eye in earlier seasons.



* {{Jerkass}}: Initially.

* {{Jerkass}}: Initially.Initially, Alex started out as a character whom most fans would attest was unlikeable. By season 13, he was considered one of the best characters on the show.



* DaChief: Stepped down in season six [[spoiler:after falling off the wagon,]] and in season eight [[spoiler:to take the fall for Meredith after she tampers with Derek's clinical trial]].



* DaChief: Stepped down in season six [[spoiler:after falling off the wagon,]] and in season eight [[spoiler:to take the fall for Meredith after she tampers with Derek's clinical trial]].



* LongLostRelative: [[spoiler: his daughter Maggie, the result of his affair with Ellis Grey]].



* MissingMom: We learn in season 13 that his mother died of pancreatic cancer when he was 10.



* DisappearedDad: Abandoned him after he couldn't handle the pressure of being an Avery. His mother Catherine (who presumably married into the family, since she still goes by Avery today) raised him single-handedly.

[[spoiler: He later visits his father in Montana in season 13, though wants nothing to do with him]].



* DarkAndTroubledPast: A former alcoholic, lost her fiancé to a drug overdose, and her baby son died less than an hour after his birth.



* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler: Her former husband used to beat her and almost killed her. She changed her name so he couldn't find her.]]

* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler: Her former husband used to beat her and almost killed her. She changed her name so he couldn't find her.]] And before that, she was abandoned as a baby, went through several foster homes, and once lived out of her car as a teenager]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheDeterminator: the best example would be the season 13 finale, where she goes through a burning part of the hospital in order to save a young girl. However, [[spoiler: this event leads to her PutOnABus moment at the end of the season]].


Added DiffLines:

* IllGirl: Stephanie was born with sickle-cell disease, and spent much of her childhood in-and-out of hospitals, which led to the decision of her becoming a doctor.

Added DiffLines:

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: For Nick, an old friend, who refers to her by many nicknames -- all of which are cities in UsefulNotes/{{Arizona}}. This leads to her "My name is not Flagstaff" speech [[spoiler:which is really about dealing with loss]].

Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: An odd example. Though plenty of horrible stuff happens to Cristina on a more or less regular basis, it's all mostly random. Whenever she does something wrong, however, especially in regards to believing she's above the rules whenever she disagrees with them, she is never punished, only rewarded, which leads to absolutely no {{character development}} in regards to her arrogance.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: When she first arrives to Seattle Grace, much like the other residents from Mercy West she acted a tad rude to others and sometimes had a feel of BitchInSheepsClothing going on. [[BreakTheHaughty After she gets fired and returns]], she is a lot better and plays more the part of TheIngenue and GenkiGirl, though she slipped back into her old part a few times. Meredith even lampshaded at one point, and she apologized saying it was habit.

** In the episode which reveals April is still a virgin, she gives as main reason the fact that she waited too long, and men seem to find her annoying. She even gets close to sleeping with Alex of all people, thanks to a newfound crush. In later episodes however anything about her chastity is portrayed to be closely related to her Christianity and that she didn't have sex before because of a promise to Jesus, which makes those other episodes mentioned before quite the EarlyInstallmentWeirdness for that aspect of her character.

** When Burke asks her in season two what she really thinks of his character, Bailey says she isn't supposed to, since he is her superior. He tells her she can be completely honest for the next 30 seconds. She proceeds to totally tear him down, and when he tries to interrupt, she says she still has a few seconds left.
