Added DiffLines:

* BrokenPedestal: Zelgadis looked up to his guardian and great-grandfather Rezo, a powerful spellcaster, as the epitome of good, nobility and selflessness. He even allows himself to be turned into a monstrous chimera (part human, part golem, part demon) in order to be stronger and more able to further Rezo's cause. Understandably, Zel is quite bitter when he finds out that everything Rezo was doing, up to and including his experiment on Zelgadis, was intended only to find a cure for his blindness.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodThingYouCanHeal: He gets badly damaged on multiple occasions (with perhaps the most extreme example being reduced to [[spoiler:little more than a head]] in the last episode of ''Evolution-R''), but his nature as a Mazoku allows him to fully heal himself in due time.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: In ''NEXT'', he switches to his cone form to impale Seigram. This doesn't kill the latter, but it does allow Lina to do so. In ''Evolution-R'', he also uses his cone form to impale [[spoiler:Zuuma]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill before going on to completely obliterate the latter's entire body]].


Added DiffLines:

* SinisterGeometry: His true form is basically a large, spinning cone.

* '''NoblewomansLaugh''': By and away her most defining feature. '''Literally''' taken UpToEleven when she gets 10 clones and all them start laughing.

* ReliableTraitor: The heroes know they can trust him to help, so long as doing so aligns with his own interests. No one knows what those interests are, exactly, but he hasn't killed them yet, so...

** BadassBookworm: She doesn't call herself the sorcery genius simply to pat herself on the back; she's infamous across the world not only for being among the best sorcerer alive (to the point of memorizing spells unknown or forbidden) but she exhibits being so well-versed across a variety of subjects from swordsmanship and bar brawling to geography and the sciences of the Slayers universe.

* {{Flanderization}}
** While she is well-meaning, kind (namely to [[FriendToAllChildren children]]) and willing to fight for causes, she is also portrayed as being sociopathic and reckless, especially in regards to her magic use and greed. Even with all of her positive traits, it can still be unnerving to see how poorly she treats either regular villagers, Gourry, Amelia, or Sylphiel. In the original novels, she lacks those sociopathic tendencies. Also, later seasons of the TV series have her react [[HairTriggerTemper like a switch]] in regards to her small bust line; not so much initially.

* {{Badass}}: Even with a regular sword, he can perform amazing feats of skill -- in fact, come the loss of his Sword of Light, he has to keep stopping in the middle of a fight because his mundane swords break under his strength.



* {{Flanderization}}
** Got the worst of it. In the original novels, while he genuinely does not know or choose to remember a lot of topics in regards to magic and magic lore (which makes some sense in hindsight - he's a swordsman), and lacks tact, his "dumbness" is largely [[ObfuscatingStupidity a facade]] that he often uses to tease others. The same can be said on his knowledge of women - he even makes an inappropriate joke to prevent Lina from getting sexually assaulted in the third novel[[hottip:*:He basically implies that she has an STD, to make some would-be rapists back off...]]. His genuine stupidity in the anime gets to the point that his importance to the team is almost entirely relegated to being [[DumbMuscle muscle]] with a magical weapon, and occasionally Lina's LivingEmotionalCrutch. Some of the more recent manga adaptations and spin-offs have chosen to scale back on the stupidity, but not by much.

* {{Flanderization}}
** His reason to cure himself was flanderized, oddly enough. In the novels, it is for [[TheAtoner atonement]]; he did terrible things under Rezo's command and, though misreble about being an outcast, holds hope into fixing what he's done (something more addressed in side stories). In the anime, it's mostly because of how he looks (to a radical point to where he refuses to change into any kind of swimwear), and it's largely his motive as to why he conveniently runs into Lina and sticks around with her. Other adaptations don't really address his reason to find a cure, weirdly enough.

* {{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. In the novels, it is treated as an ideology and as an emotional barrier of sorts, and it's entirely justified: the end of novel 4, where she is introduced, has her upset at how her cousin was killed, and about how murder in her family is not an uncommon thing. 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.

* BlondesAreEvil: [[GoodIsNotNice Not evil per se]], but her attitude and naivite creates a lot of friction for everyone around her, even putting them in danger several times [[spoiler:(including the final battle, where she is reluctant to kill the BigBad Valgaav after learning of his DarkAndTroubledPast ''and'' the part her race had on it, only relenting at the last moment)]]. This also contrasts with her innocent, HairOfGoldHeartOfGold portrayals in the opening and closing songs.

Our beloved AntiHero, Lina is a young BlackMagicianGirl from the land of Zephilia. She is known throughout the world as the "Queen of Destruction", "Dragon Spookers" (because she can apparently frighten dragons to the point that they side step her "out of sheer revulsion" - which actually does happen in the pilot) and "Enemy of All Living Things" due to her short temper and skill with Dragon Slaves. Lina usually pursues power and riches for herself, but gets dragged into saving the world along the way.
