* {{Flanderization}}: Her love of justice became such a defining trait in the anime and early manga that, for a while, she became [[TheScrappy reviled]] by a lot of fans.

Her naivite and tendency to trust others blindly is also cranked up in many adaptations. It will come off as odd for someone reading the novels after watching the anime that she actually ''hates'' Xellos almost as much as Zelgadis does.

She also believed that an EvilSorcerer was a good guy because his robes were white. This is mostly averted in the novels.
