* DeflectorShields: For most of the battle, he has a large prismatic one always facing his frontside, which blocks all of Travis' attacks as he spins around, including his "Death Blows." It breaks once he reaches 1/3 of his health, though he TurnsRed as a result.

* MultiArmedAndDangerous
* RedEyesTakeWarning

to:

* MultiArmedAndDangerous
MultiArmedAndDangerous: Her "ASURA-6" is a back-mounted device that gives her ''six'' limbs with beam katana extensions, one of which is long enough to act as a tail to lift her off the ground.
* RedEyesTakeWarningRedEyesTakeWarning: Is dangerous enough to be the Rank 2 assassin, and has red eyes.



* SymbolMotifClothing: The most interesting thing about Alice is rather her weapon, which is named the Asura-6. While considered cool and mystifying in video games and popular culture, Ashuras in reality, and to the Hindu and Buddhist culture they belong to, are semi divine beings that rank above humans in power, but whose lives and rankings in life are considered even worse than man's own world itself, as they are engulfed in wrath and anger, indulge in materialistic pleasures and vices, and never see any resolution or peace within their own world. Because of this, they desire and seek enlightenment to transcend to become Devas or even remove themselves from Samsara altogether. Considering her path she took in life, the rankings to ascend upon, her own weathered and weary perspectives in the world she dived into, the quest for death, and how Silvia even mentions how the contestants in Santa Destroy are nothing more than demons in the visages of men, Alice appears to be a beautiful ashura who wants out of the world of glorified bloodshed and killing which she once saw as a means to use to ascend to higher calling.

* AffectionateParody: He seems to be an amalgam of various ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' protagonists (oversized sword that looks like Cloud's Buster Sword, ridiculously spiky hair, tattoos, etc). Unlike his easily dispatched brother, he's an actual boss fight, and much better developed as a character.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: The lyrics to her battle theme are insults geared towards Travis. Philistine means one who does not pursue intellectual needs. [[FridgeBrilliance This is geared at how Travis only wants to see people die and not consider that they are also people.]]
* VillainSong: Definitely.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: The Half of the lyrics to her battle theme are unrelenting insults geared towards Travis. She mocks his belief that pursuing revenge makes him noble, that he is not a real hero for pursuing it, and his anger doesn't make him a good man. She even devotes a line to make a dig at Travis' otaku perversions. Philistine means one who does not pursue intellectual needs. [[FridgeBrilliance This is geared at how Travis only wants to see people die and not consider that they are also people.]]
* VillainSong: Definitely.Definitely, and a pretty catchy one to boot. American and Japanese/PAL releases of the game got different versions of the song; America got one with more techno and clear vocals, while Japan and PAL got the Fukuda-Mix which added more distortion and background effects.

* {{Foil}}: Of Bad Girl. Both like the Lolita look, but Bad Girl is Sweet while Margaret is Gothic. Which is ironic because despite her [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech making fun of you]], Margaret actually seems [[{{Moe}} cute]] and just genuinely nice (for an assassin). Bad Girl is... [[TheFakeCutie not]]. In fact, Margaret seems to have been designed as a total opposite of Bad Girl. Their dresses are different types of the same style. Bad Girl is rude, violent, and psychotic while Margaret is relatively sweet, honorable, and kind. Their death scenes even start similarly, with Travis running them through with his sword, but they react in totally opposite ways, with Bad Girl [[{{Determinator}} viciously beating Travis until he actually gives up]], just before she dies, while Margaret just asks if Travis remembered her song and [[FaceDeathWithDignity accepts her death when she tells him he did]].

* WakeUpCallBoss: Though not as much as Ryuji, who ironically uses the same boss theme, Matt Helms is definitely a much tougher boss than the previous (And good luck on Bitter Mode). His attacks include Molotov Cocktails that he ''never stops throwing,'' powerful swings of his Axe, turning the aforementioned axe into a flamethrower, and sitting on you.
