* DoesNotLikeShoes: Not always, but she does go barefoot a lot.
** Less so in the manga; she's got a rather cute pair of flats after she shreds Lawrence's good boots early on. The artist certainly likes drawing them a lot.

* BabiesEverAfter: At the end of the light novel [[spoiler:she is married to Lawrence and has children]].
* BarbieDollAnatomy: She spends an appreciable amount of time naked, but she's not shown having anything resembling naughty bits.

* HimeCut: Holo. An unusual example in that she's the equivalent to a Caucasian. It gets messed with in various ways as the series wears on, but it's still depicted as such in art about as much as she is naked. She certainly has the personality for it.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold:
** She has an incredibly good heart and she'll help just about anyone who requests it, but she is very cruel, she likes to be cruel, and she will purposefully try to humiliate and make people suffer if she feels they are worthy in some way. It's a roundabout version of encouragement on her part, and it's described as being a fusion of her hyper-aggressive Alpha-wolf mentality and her affinity as a Goddess for appraising and testing her followers. She's unapologetic about it and won't let up, though.
** Lawrence seems to be one of the few people who has pushed back in some way, hence her fascination with him.

* MasochismTango: If later books are to be believed, Holo fell pretty hard for Lawrence rather early in the series, with Lawrence beginning to reciprocate later. Because Holo's keenly aware she'll outlive Lawrence, she fears becoming too attached and enforces this trope. Lawrence thinks it's immature and unwise given how close they are as friends if nothing else, but he goes along with it because he feels pushing this issue is one of the few things that could truly jeopardize their relationship, he's not going to touch something like that with a ten-foot pole.

* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Since Holo is a wolf, she isn't worried about clothing on a fundamental level and isn't all that shy about doffing her clothing entirely if she thinks the occasion calls for it. Lawrence is generally collected and chivalrous about it, true to his pragmatic nature.

* ShapeshiftingLover: Her true form is a giant wolf, but she takes the form of a cute young girl because she's afraid of frightening off
Lawrence is generally collected and chivalrous about it, when he sees her true form. This very nearly happens anyway, as Holo is forced to turn wolf to protect an injured Lawrence. Lawrence reacts badly to being approached by a giant wolf, which in turn only alienates Holo further. Lawrence comes to his pragmatic nature.senses quickly, though, and manages to salvage the relationship. From then on, Lawrence seems comfortable with both forms, having learned that Holo is the same regardless of appearance.
