* MacGuffinSuperPerson: To Hell. Learning that Anna has been accurately warning people about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt with their battles against angels, Alastair and other demons are sent to hunt her down and capture her alive to use her ability to hear angels - by committing ColdBloodedTorture on her to [[TortureAlwaysWorks make her talk]]. She loses this status by turning back into a fully powered angel who can fight back if they try to catch her.

* BreakTheCutie: Believed to have gone insane in "I Know What You Did Last Summer" when she tries to warn people of the Apocalypse and is committed to a mental hospital where she sits despairing and waiting for the world to end. After she is attacked by demons who want to torture her, she finds out that her parents have been murdered and finally breaks down, bursting into tears asking why this is happening to her. She becomes better when she regains her memories and finally does understand everything going on, [[CharacterDevelopment becoming a calmer and more confident character]]. Alternately, remembering her infinitely-long past as an emotionless angel distanced her from the emotional duress human Anna Milton had been in.

* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Her parents are quickly disposed of in "I Know What You Did Last Summer", being found dead from a demonic attack in their home by Sam and Dean to ensure Anna [[YouCantGoHomeAgain can't go home again]] and explain their absence while she is on the run. She finds out about their deaths at the end of the episode and only gets a moment of respite to [[OrphansOrdeal grieve]] before the next threat shows up.



* DamselInDistress: Before she remembers she is an angel, she is pursued by demons who want to capture and torture her for information as well as by angels who want to kill her before demons can catch her and use her against them as well as for punishment for falling.

* DamselInDistress: Before she remembers she is an angel, she is pursued by demons who want to capture and torture her for information as well as by angels who want to kill her before demons can catch her and use her against them as well as for punishment for falling. When she does regain her grace, she stops being a Damsel by virtue of the fact that she is now [[TookALevelInBadass more powerful]] than either faction chasing her -- Castiel and Uriel know their former leader too well to even want to ''try'' to take her on at that point.



* DistaffCounterpart: Fans sometimes call her a female version of Castiel due to being the TokenHeroicOrc of angels and their connection to Dean. Due to the limited number of angel characters that first appeared when they were introduced in Season 4 (just Cas, Uriel, Anna, and Zachariah), these similarities ''really'' stood out. According to popular fandom rumor (building off confirmation that Castiel was supposed to die mid-Season 4), Castiel was even meant to be replaced by Anna shortly after her introduction, which if true, makes their similarities make even more sense.

to:

* DisappearedDad: Manages to have this twice! Part of Anna's disillusionment and motivation for falling was that she never met, saw, or heard God herself, and spent 2,000 years away posted on Earth waiting on orders from him that never came. She feared retribution from him for falling, but later intuited that the commands angels ''were'' receiving were not from God as claimed, because she believed God would not have ordered Dean to be forced to torture Alastair, making her the first character to twig onto God's absence in Heaven. In addition to missing her heavenly father, she also lost her human father when demons [[OrphansOrdeal killed him and her mother]].

* NeurodiversityIsSupernatural: Anna [[HearingVoices hears voices]] and is diagnosed as having paranoid schizophrenia, the religious overtones of her delusions and hallucinations attributed to her being a PreachersKid. She is even diagnosed in her early 20's, which is around the same age real-life schizophrenia typically manifests. In her childhood, she also needed to be taken to a child psychiatrist due to {{Freak Out}}s that her "real" dad (later revealed to be God) was going to kill her. Sam and Dean realize everything she is saying is actually eerily accurate and she really is somehow hearing angels. It is soon explained that she is herself an angel who has turned human and whose remaining PsychicPowers make her appear mentally ill to {{Muggles}}.



* SacrificialLion: An established badass and implied high-ranking angel, Anna is [[CurbStompBattle effortlessly killed]] in one touch by the ArchangelMichael in an EstablishingCharacterMoment to back up claims by other characters of how unbelievably powerful he is and why a big cosmic fight between him and [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]] [[TheEndOfTheWorld would not be ideal]].



* TookALevelInBadass: She can mostly only run and hide in her first two episodes, but regaining her grace does her badassery wonders.

Added DiffLines:

* YouCantGoHomeAgain: In her backstory, she was ordered to stay at her post on Earth despite being homesick for Heaven. Ended up [[FallenAngel falling]] to Earth and becoming an abomination in need of execution in the Host's eyes, meaning she cannot return to her original home, and then her human parents were killed, meaning she no longer has a human home either.

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[AmbiguousSituation Possibly]], in Season 5. At least Castiel thinks so, while Anna denies it. While Castiel was able to be snapped out of his Heaven brainwashing (where he ended up luring Anna into a trap to be brought back to Heaven) back in Season 4, he was only up there for one episode and even then, it took another two episodes to undo it. As Anna was up there for ''14 episodes'', he and the Winchesters didn't have enough time to try to get through to her and undo any possible brainwashing, especially as she was deadset on killing the Winchesters' parents immediately.

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Most angels and even demons get shot or stabbed, and keel over pretty much instantaneously. [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome Fittingly]] for the victim of an entity as powerful as the ArchangelMichael, Anna's is one of the most brutal deaths aired on ''Supernatural''. She is effectively burned alive from the inside-out, with jets of flame even erupting her mouth and [[EyeScream eyes]], rapidly burning into smoldering ashes for 14 straight seconds in front of a room of no one who can, or will, help her, in what is clearly an extremely painful death. Its gruesomeness is emphasized by the fact that Anna is one of the few recurring characters to die ''screaming in agony'', with most passing on without a word. For an angel who shouldn't be able to feel to scream like ''that'', it must've '''''really hurt'''''.

* WorfHadTheFlu: The reason why she didn't just kill the Winchesters family immediately and ultimately had to recruit Uriel for help to do the deed was that her power was severely drained from TimeTravel and she was still suffering its side-effects. If Heaven was ''not'' helping her, she was also likely low on power even before that because fallen angels are cut off from Heaven's powers. Note that MemeticBadass Castiel pulled the same trick as Anna and was actually rendered ''unconscious'' as a result for almost the entire duration of the episode.[[note]]Though he also had to carry two passengers with him and he likely would've recovered to confront her himself if he hadn't had to take them.[[/note]]

Proven right when after turning back into an angel, she shows that she can kick major ass when she needs to and even becomes the first character to kill an angel onscreen. Despite a significant hit to her power and health from TimeTravel that knocked Cas out cold, she manages to fight Dean and Mary on her own and seemed poised to defeat them and kill [[BadassFamily the Winchesters]] before being zapped off by Sam's angel-banishing sigil.

* BadassLongcoat: Replaces her military jacket with a long navy coat starting in "On the Head of a Pin", which is the same episode she is solidified as a total badass. It also has the effect of making her resemble Castiel, ''the'' BadassLongcoat of ''Supernatural'', more in design.

* CoolBigSis: Can be seen as this to Castiel in Season 4 with her attempts to [[BigBrotherMentor mentor]] and look out for him, though it's complicated somewhat by his orders to kill her. While there ''is'' ShipTease, angels generally regard one another as siblings and, well, it wouldn't be the first time a RelationshipWritingFumble resulted in shipping siblings on the show.

Leading up to the sex scene, she also tried to help assuage Dean's trauma and guilt over Hell, and both the tenderness of the act in the scene itself and the ScarSurvey she does of Castiel's handprint from when he saved Dean from Hell symbolize [[SexIsGood it successfully helping Dean recover somewhat]].

FallenAngel: Anna gave up her grace and literally fell from Heaven to become human.human. Because doing so constituted disobedience, the worst thing an angel can do, she has a death sentence on her head when she next meets her former subordinates and they regard her as even worse than demons. Although normally a strong-willed character who believes she is right, Anna also has some lingering guilt over falling, even voicing the thought to Dean in private that maybe she deserves to die.
* {{Foil}}:
** The nice, angelic supernatural LoveInterest to Dean in "Heaven and Hell" compared to Ruby's pricklier, demonic supernatural LoveInterest to Sam. They are both unlike other members of their species and that makes them rebels against their respective kinds. Anna seems to pick up on this similarity and feel close to Ruby as a result, going out of her way to assure Ruby she won't hurt her with almost the same words she had used to validate Ruby as an ally ("Don't worry, I'm not like the others" v "Ruby's not like other demons"). Turned on its head with TheReveal that Ruby is actually a HeelFaceMole. Anna also ends up betraying the brothers for a cause that she believes in, though she intends to kill Sam for it while Ruby's cause hinged on his survival.
** "Heaven and Hell" plays up the similarities between Dean's life and Anna's past as a soldier out on the road and away from home, always waiting for orders from a father they can't entirely understand. However, the rest of Season 4 shifts focus to the similarities and differences in Anna and Cas as angels questioning Heaven, fond of Dean, and commitment to do what is right. While he serves Heaven and is an [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor occasion antagonist]] in Season 4, she is a FallenAngel who operates as her own agent to investigate Heaven; by Season 5, both have been subjected to ColdBloodedTorture but while Castiel eventually snapped out of it and broke his ties with Heaven to ally with the Winchesters, Anna has been left in Heaven for much longer and has become an antagonist who [[AmbiguousSituation may be working for Heaven again, possibly even unknowingly]]. Like Anna, Castiel tries to convince other angels to make their own decisions, and later loses his grace, experiences life as a human and develops an appreciation for its uniquenesses, and then turns back into an angel. Visually, Anna's green military jacket she wears as a human is reminiscent of jackets Dean sometimes wears, and her navy BadassLongcoat she switches to as an angel is similar to Castiel's tan trenchcoat.
** Anna and Gabriel are both {{Fallen Angel}}s who left Heaven to go to Earth. They also show signs of TheHedonist and don't want the Apocalypse. However, whereas Gabriel retains all his power and pursues {{Jerkass}}es in the name of self-righteous punishment, Anna willingly gives up all her power and becomes [[GoingNative human]] to lead an ordinary life. Additionally, Gabriel doesn't want the Apocalypse because it means his brothers will kill each other, while Anna is more worried about the billions of humans who would die. Pity they don't meet before they both die - Anna killed by Michael and Gabriel killed by Lucifer for their respective attempts at stopping the Apocalypse.
** Meg's HeelFaceTurn from ArchEnemy to [[AscendedDemon ally]] in later seasons contrasts Anna's JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope. Both characters have a marked appreciation for sex and brazenly pursue it, and have significant [[ShipTease relationships]] with Castiel. While Meg was straightforward about her attraction to Cas and even suggested she was in love with him, Anna's relationship with him is more ambiguous and possibly [[BigBrotherMentor platonic]].

Particularly glaring as Anna was used to introduce a number of angel lore elements to the show (grace, "angel radio", the angel-banishing sigil, etc), and yet is never referenced at all when they're brought up again. Considering what happened with her, maybe she's a sore spot they all avoid talking about?
** Even before her death, she is captured by Heaven and missing for half a season but not mentioned in all this time by Castiel or the Winchesters until she returns as a villain, despite the fact that she was the only other angel on the Winchesters' side and they were desperate for any kind of help they could get. It's mitigated somewhat by Dean asking her where she's been when she finally does reappear, showing he's noticed her absence, but he still was not shown wondering this ''onscreen'' before this scene.

While Castiel does not demonstrate any developing amnesia when he turns human in Season 9, he was only human for part of a year whereas Anna had been human for several years before she began losing her memories. On the other hand, Anna repressing them only after being taken to a child psychiatrist might suggest that she began repressing the memories in therapy to become more of a normal child for her worried parents.

According to [[http://susurrantpetrichor.tumblr.com/post/54074860256/anna-milton-meta-part-2b-its-time-to-think this meta analysis]], the trope can also be applied to Anna's apparent investigation into Heaven's doings in Season 4.
* JeanneDArchetype: Many aspects of her story resemble Joan of Arc's, starting with their names[[note]]Anna and Joan come from the same root word and have the same meaning[[/note]]. Anna is a seemingly ordinary girl until she starts [[HearingVoices hearing angels]] and their talk of the Apocalypse, which ultimately leads to her taking a level in badass and becoming an ActionGirl in the war between angels and demons. Also in line with the trope, she opposes a powerful commanding force and acts against them, resenting Heaven's methods of controlling angels and suspicious of what they tell them. She tries to convince others of her words - humans about the Apocalypse, Castiel about Heaven being untrustworthy - but is dismissed. Sentenced to die by her own people for heresy, she is burned alive.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: In Season 5, she tries to stop the end of the world and save the lives of billions of people by murdering a good person and then his entire family.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Anna was pretty well-liked by most fans up until her abrupt return to kill Sam - and then his and Dean's parents, to wipe both brothers from history - which turned much of the fanbase firmly against her. When [[BigBadEnsemble Michael]] [[VillainousRescue arrived]] to administer her a CruelAndUnusualDeath, he was generally cheered, even though he then tried to manipulate Dean into saying yes. It helped fan appreciation that it was a really cool-looking death, even if it wasn't too pleasant for Anna to experience.

* MacGuffinSuperPerson: To Hell. Learning that Anna has been accurately warning people about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt with their battles against angels, Alastair and other demons are sent to hunt
her debut.down and capture her alive to use her ability to hear angels - by committing ColdBloodedTorture on her to [[TortureAlwaysWorks make her talk]]. She loses this status by turning back into a fully powered angel who can fight back if they try to catch her.

* NecessarilyEvil: [[spoiler:After escaping Heaven, she decides she must kill Sam to stop Lucifer from using him as his one true vessel. When Castiel refuses to let her do that, she decides to go back in time and prevent the Winchester brothers' births altogether so that the Apocalypse will have never happened. Castiel seems to believe it would work, but still tries to stop her "because Sam is my friend."]]

* MysticalPregnancy: Amy Milton was likely infertile and it was said she couldn't get pregnant... until suddenly she did with Anna, after Anna ripped out her grace and fell to Earth. Amy didn't know about ''that'' part but she knew enough to know it was a miracle.

* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: If she really did escape from Heaven's jail, which no other angel has done and which Castiel believes is impossible. Anna doesn't elaborate on how she might have done it.
* OhCrap: One of the few times she shows actual fear is when she hears John call her name and turns around to see ''[[ArchangelMichael Michael]]''. As in, leader of the Heavenly Host wanting to kill her that she has turned on and is working against, the angel planning to possess one of the sons she is trying to erase from history, Michael.
* PreachersKid: Reborn as a human to a church deacon and his wife as an ''Angelic'' type. While she might've had some [[TheHedonist interests]] her parents might've disapproved of, her psychiatrist describes her to the Winchesters as someone well-liked with lots of friends, good grades, and a promising future.
* RedheadInGreen: A redhead who wears a green jacket in her first two episodes, which is arguably her IconicOutfit though she spent her next four episodes in the blue coat. Fan art at least seems to depict her in the green jacket more often, maybe because of the complementary colors with her hair.
* RescueRomance: Is overjoyed to meet Dean because she has overheard the angels saying he might be the only one who can save the world, and gets closest to him out of her three protectors. Assuming their plan will fail and she'll die the next day, she goes out of her way to thank him for at least trying to save her, then tries to bed him for her [[PreClimaxClimax last night on Earth]]. [[HandsomeLech He]] doesn't take much convincing.



* ShipTease: In addition to her canonical InterspeciesRomance with Dean, Anna and Castiel's interactions have romantic subtext and their actors even posited the possibility of a past - or potential past - romance between them. YuriFans also interpret Anna's overt friendliness to Ruby as an [[AngelDevilShipping indicator of attraction]]. All three ships have been [[ShipSinking thoroughly sunk]] as of Ruby's death in "Lucifer Rising" and Anna's JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope and death in "The Song Remains the Same".

* WeUsedToBeFriends: Anna has "history" with Castiel, who did ''not'' like that she fell and makes that clear to her when she tries to convince him to rebel against Heaven and help her. They retain a pretty cordial relationship despite that and tend to go to each other for help even though Anna's a fugitive and Cas is supposed to kill her. [[spoiler:Then a brainwashed Cas turns ''her'' in for brainwashing. When they meet up again, Anna still feels betrayed and pissed; of course, in the same episode, Sam and Dean aren't thrilled that the girl they spent two episodes protecting is now trying to kill them.]]

* WorfHadTheFlu: The reason why she didn't just kill the Winchesters family immediately and ultimately had to recruit Uriel for help to do the deed was that her power was severely drained from TimeTravel and she was still suffering its side-effects. If Heaven was ''not'' helping her, she was also likely low on power even before that because fallen angels are cut off from Heaven's powers. Note that MemeticBadass Castiel pulled the same trick as Anna and was actually rendered ''unconscious'' as a result for almost the entire duration of the episode.[[note]]Though he also had to carry two passengers with him and he likely would've recovered to confront her himself if he hadn't had to take them.[[/note]]
