Moving Neutral Evil and Casting Gag to the appropriate subpages.
* NeutralEvil: This is as close to describing her situation as can be done. She's a part of a group of terrorists and is definitely up to nothing good, but her motivations are unclear and she expresses admiration for strong ideals.

* CastingGag: It's not the first time MasashiEbara voicing a cyborg, extra hilarity he was named ''[[Anime/AngelCop Raiden]]''.

The Prime Minister of Montenegro. He takes quite a liking to Raiden. He is later killed by Sundowner.

%%* FragileSpeedster: The swiftest of the trio, speed is Monsoon's defining trait: he chains his attacks in rapid succession and can strike from multiple angles, giving the player little in the way of breathing room. He's not as burly as Sundowner, but his attacks still pack quite the punch (such as [[LauncherMove launching]] Raiden into the air with a kick and them [[MeteorMove slamming him back to the ground... hard]], only to [[DeathFromAbove pounce from the skies]], pin Raiden to the asphalt, and [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown stab him repeatedly and mercilessly]]), Monsoon can easily stunlock and daze a player who has yet to master the art of parrying, and he can take it just about as well as he dishes it out, [[DetachmentCombat provided you can land a hit at all]]. There's a reason many are quick to cite him as ThatOneBoss the first time around. Interestingly enough, looking at the game files shows he actually has more health than Sundowner despite being much smaller than him. Then again, Monsoon does have the most cybernetic parts of the Winds of Destruction.

* AchillesHeel: [[spoiler:Armstrong's nanomachines can only seem to respond to one high intensity attack in one area at a time- Raiden uses this during the last portion of their fight to stab Armstrong through his midsection by slashing him across his upper body, while Sam is able to use his gunsheath to cut off Armstrong's arm while the nanomachines are in his other arm.]]

** BadassNormal: His backstory involves killing ten mob enforcers armed with automatic weapons with nothing but a ''sword'', years before {{cyborg}} technology became available. [[spoiler:While he has a cybernetic arm, the rest of his body is real and is covered by an enhancing nanosuit to rival cyborgs. Even before he lost the right arm, he was capable of doing some amazing feats, including taking down a RAY, a which was a DegradedBoss for Raiden when he had his original cyborg body.]]

There's evidence they ''are'' mechanical, improbable though it may be.
* JigglePhysics: Downplayed. Her massive breasts are apparently natural and do jiggle a little during cutscenes. During battle, she uses one of her [[MultiArmedAndDangerous many]] pairs of arms to support and shield her chest. The JigglePhysics are a clue to Doktor that her torso is probably human, and not cybernetic.

* RealityEnsues: Doktor comments she seems to have her original, organic torso. [[GlassCannon Accordingly, when you land hits on her, her health drops like a rock.]] Most of Mistral's defense comes from dodging, blocking, and using her Dwarf Gekko arms as armor.

* BecauseImGoodAtIt: One of her motivations, it seems. She began her life of bloodshed upon finding out that she was a very capable fighter and killer. It wouldn't seem to be the whole reason for her current actions, though.

Added DiffLines:
* BloodbathVillainOrigin: Shared with Monsoon, she grew up in the Algerian wars among slaughter and chaos.

Added DiffLines:
* BloodbathVillainOrigin: Shared with Mistral, Monsoon grew up in the Khmer Rouge. It drove him to become a nihilistic, misanthropic killer who sees slaughter and destruction as natural.

* AdorableEvilMinions: Dwarf Gekko are a personal tool for her and follow her everywhere, and the ones around her seem to actually take orders directly from her. Ask Courtney about them; according to her, any girl would find them absolutely ''cute''.

Mistral's high-heels are a part of her body and thus don't count as shoes.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Mistral straddles a lot of lines in the main game, being killed before too much about her can be gleaned but displaying enough that whether she's really all that terrible of a person is unclear, and her dialogue is much less heavy and harsh than Monsoon's or Sundowner's. The Blade Wolf DLC, however, shows her being a lot more geared towards her sadistic, more ruthless aspects. She backstabs Khamsin simply because he's a loudmouthed idiot and sets the LQ-84i up in a particularly cruel gambit. Notably, the times where she is ''openly'' cruel usually involve Blade Wolf or her Dwarf Gekkos--see WhatMeasureIsANonHuman above.

* CombatStilettos
to:
* CombatStilettosCombatStilettos: Like Raiden's, they are a part of her actual feet.

* CombatStilettosTheSlowWalk: She'll do this in her battle when fully armed and armored, showing how unconcerned about injury she is.

* StatuesqueStunner: Although not much is made of Mistral's stature in-game (and while she does appear to be taller than Raiden when they cross paths, her high heels factor into that), her height is officially listed as 190 cm -- just a bit shy of 6'3".

Raiden when they cross paths, her high heels factor into that), her height points out how it's hard to feel sorry for the latter, given that their only purpose is officially listed as 190 cm -- just to kill opponents. However, the line blurs with Bladewolf, whose AI is based on a bit shy of 6'3".human brain.

That is as far as Expy can be taken. It should still probably be removed.
* Expy: Of Screaming Mantis.
to:
* Expy: Of {{Expy}}: Her character designs were noted to invoke Laughing Octopus from ''Metal Gear Solid 4'', and later Screaming Mantis.Mantis. The actual characters beyond that have very few similarities.
