* {{Badass}}: Almost absurdly so. Everyone who know treats her as a matter of ''very'' serious concern.
-->'''Tasarov:''' You fought Nikita... it wasn't a fair fight.



* LadyOfWar: Yes, she is a {{badass}}, and yes, she is equally at home on the battlefield and in the ballroom. {{Justified}}: Miranda trains all female Division agents for this.

* {{Badass}}: While early on she isn't as good as Nikita or Michael, in season 2 she [[spoiler: kills Roan.]]



* {{Badass}}



* {{Badass}}: A job requirement for one of Percy's Guardians; in his first episode, Owen beats Nikita and ''Roan'' in their respective fights.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Used to be chemically augmented like other Guardians into a LightningBruiser, before he managed to detox from the Regimen. This makes taking on other Guardians a risky proposition - he and Michael combined were barely able to defeat one Guardian. Still, even while off the Regimen, he remains a {{Badass}}.

* CopKiller: Nikita came to Division's attention after she was sentenced to death for killing a cop while high on ketamine (she was so high she didn't even remember doing it). Division [[DeathFakedForYou faked her execution]] and brought her to their training facility. The full story is more complicated: [[spoiler:The cop was dirty and was threatening her foster mom.

to:

* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Alex, Red to Michael. Her greater experience means she's cooler under pressure than Alex (especially early in the series), but she's still more passionate than the calm and collected Michael.
* SecondLove: For Michael. He was her mentor and later partner at Division and they became attracted to each other, but Michael was still being the CrusadingWidower over Kasim Tariq's murder of his wife and daughter. [[spoiler:After their discovery that Tariq was a Division agent and his bomb was set on Percy's orders (in order to help him infiltrate al-Qa'ida undercover), they go for it.]]



* SecondLove: Nikita is his.



The daughter of a Russian ogligarch, Alexandra Udinov ended up as a junkie prostitute after being smuggled to America. Nikita rescued her, got her clean, befriended her and trained her up to be a mole within Division.

* AntiHero: Nikita starts off wanting both revenge and to stop Division destroying people's lives (like her fiancee's), then moving towards wanting redemption. In Season 2 she wants to destroy Division only so they will stop chasing her and Michael. Her reasons are more complex than just to do the right thing.
