* BlondesAreEvil: Deliberately shows off her blonde hair at every opportunity and very, very cruel-hearted towards Marie Antoinette and her allies. Although not entirely unsympathetic; her touching exchanges with Louis XV while he lay dying show she had ''some'' [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes affection for him]], as does the scene where she's cast out by Louis after staying by at deathbed for weeks caring for him, still demanding that she stay by his side until his death as she's dragged out by the arms.

* TheTysonZone: At one point, people started believing ''everything'' about her, including but not limited to: cheating on the King and giving birth to one of her lovers' children, having lesbian lovers, swindling innocent men and her own lesbian lovers to get a diamond necklace, and that infamous quote about cake. She ''never'' did anything of the above (and in fact the cake quote was ''older than her'').
** {{Subverted}} at her trial, when [[KickTheDog she's accused of incest with her own son]]: the witnesses believe ''her'' when she denies the accuse, and in fact it's the accuser who risks being lynched.

* [[LetThemDieHappy Let Them Pretend Happy]]: André starts losing eyesight on his remaining eye, and at some point he stands next to Oscar's new portrait and starts giving a flowery false description of it to not let Oscar know his eyesight problems. Oscar then tearfully says the picture is as gorgeous as he says it is, not having the heart to tell André that she knows he's almost blind.

* {{AdaptationalBadass}}. In the manga for all her quest to avenge her mother, she never does anything of significance (granted Oscar stops her just as she was going to draw a knife and kill de Poligniac at a ball). In the anime, upon discovering [[spoiler: de Poligniac was her mother]],Rosalie took the initiative to go into the De Jarjayes family's armory, take a pistol, and than follow [[spoiler: de Poligniac's carriage]]. She threatened the carriage riders to head to a steady forest with the stolen pistol and forced [[spoiler: de Poligniac to exit the carriage. She was just a few seconds from shooting de Poligniac straight on and its only her truly sweet nature that prevents her from shooting her foster mother's murderer]].
* [[spoiler: ArrangedMarriage: ''Barely'' escapes one.]]

* FaceDeathWithDignity: When brought to the guillotine she was only thinking of showing dignity as queen of France and the daughter of UsefulNotes/MariaTheresa, and the manga reports her letter to her sister-in-law Elizabeth in which she reaffirmed her dignity. In RealLife, Witnesses were impressed by her dignity, including her graceful apologize to her executioner when she accidentally stepped on his foot.

* TraumaCongaLine: With the Revolution, she's subjected to a major one. First she's nearly lynched by the women of Paris (who calms only after she makes a reverence to them), then she's forced to move to the Touileries with the Royal Family, then there's the failure of the escape to Belgium with the relative hate of the people, the forced abdication, Louis XVI's trial and execution, the Committee of Public Safety taking her children away (by this time she's suffering of [[IncurableCoughOfDeath tuberculosis]] and uterine cancer), a [[KangarooCourt a sham trial]] finalized to sentence her to death, [[KickTheDog member of the Committee Jacques Hébert brainwashing her son into accusing her of incest]], and, finally, she's executed. Partly subverted because ''none of this succeeded into humiliating her''.

* TheDogBitesBack: When Hébert relayed the accuse of incest at her trial, Marie Antoinette at first refused to reply, and when she was forced to answer she declared "If I have not replied, it is because Nature itself refuses to respond to such a charge laid against a mother" and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome nearly got Hébert lynched]], succeeding in putting him on Robespierre's and Saint-Just's shit-lists (Hébert barely survived five months before being executed as a thief).



** WrongGenreSavvy: She thinks EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses, and realizes too late she's wrong.
