* MadeOfIron: She's ''a gynoid''. So she's built to last and resilient enough to withstand the force of a missile explosion from only a few yards away. When the smoke cleared, she walked away with only faint singe marks and frazzled hair.

* MadeOfIron: She's ''a gynoid''. So she's built to last and resilient enough to withstand the force of a missile explosion from only a few yards away. When the smoke cleared, she walked away with only faint singe marks and frazzled hair. Also quite literally, her mechanical parts make her disproportionately heavy (she wasn't made out of lightweight plastics, etc.). On occasions when she loses consciousness, Roger and Dastun, both strong adults, have to struggle to drag her inert body just a few feet.

**There are a couple of androids in the population of Paradigm City - not many, but enough that people know what they are - and characters do remark that Dorothy is ''vastly'' more human-like in her appearance than any of them. The rest look blocky and mechanical: in dark lighting, at first glance, Dorothy might be mistaken for human.
**Dorothy's "evil twin sister" Red Destiny is ''drastically'' more emotive, both in her facial expressions and vocal intonations.



* DreadfulMusician: She'd probably be pretty good were it not for her stubborn insistence on playing every last note perfectly, which prevents her from playing with feeling. She also tends to play loudly. She weaponizes this when Roger slights her in some way.

* DreadfulMusician: Played with. She's very technically skilled at copying the music of other composers...like a wind-up box. She'd probably be pretty good were it not for her stubborn insistence on playing every last note perfectly, which prevents her from playing with feeling. She also tends to play loudly. She weaponizes this when Roger slights her in some way.

Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: only by having Hōchū Ōtsuka as his voice actor he'd already counts as this, but he only get's more over the top as the series progresses.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyEvil: {{CloudCuckoolander}}? The ManBehindTheMan? A GreaterScopeVillain? If he is behind some of the strange ongoings of the series it's left ambiguous as to whether he did so intentionally or accidentally.

** The bandages are evocative of Hush, but he wouldn't debut for another three years after this series' airing. Schwartzwald's really the [[XMeetsY Joker meets Char Aznable]]. His background as a formerly happily married, moral man, asymmetrical facial scarring, and subsequent mental breakdown also parallels Harvey Dent/Two-Face.

* NoisyRobots: To emphasize her being an android, she makes whirring noises whenever she moves.



* ReiAyanamiExpy: Teenage girl, short hair, mysterious past, an android intended as a ReplacementGoldfish for her creator's deceased granddaughter, pale skin, emotionless; all she's missing is the blue hair.

* ReiAyanamiExpy: Teenage girl, short hair, mysterious past, an android intended as a ReplacementGoldfish for her creator's deceased granddaughter, pale skin, emotionless; emotionless, and as an added bonus, her first name starts with an R; all she's missing is the blue hair.



* ThreeLawsCompliant: Being that she's a ShoutOut to Isaac Asimov, this is somewhat expected, although she follows this to varying levels. She's clearly First Law compliant, such as during a fight with Alan Gabriel, whose status as robot or human is unclear, when she initially fights back very little and appears to be losing. She asks him whether he's a human or a robot like her, and he answers jokingly, "I'm the boogeyman!" Apparently taking this as a literal statement that he's not human (and therefore violence against him would not violate the First Law), she finally starts fighting him (for reference, Alan is later revealed to be a cyborg). She also is presumably Third Law compliant as well, and she's generally quite loyal and helpful (if [[ServileSnarker sarcastic]]). But when she gets it in her head to do something like play loud piano to wake up her oversleeping employer, no amount of Second Law cajoling will stop her.

* UnknownRival: WordOfGod suggests this is why Beck becomes increasingly unhinged through the show. With each encounter, Beck sees himself more and more as the only fitting adversary for Roger Smith and the Big O, while Roger regards Beck as just another criminal, albeit one who gets farther in over his head every time.

Considering he's up against the likes of Schwartzwald and Rosewater, it's no wonder Beck ultimately can't compete.

** It's evident that she can invoke or avert this trope ''intentionally'', i.e. either appear and behave very human, or very inhuman. And she often does the latter to simply tick off Roger.

* UncannyValleyGirl: Besides [[EmotionlessGirl all the]] [[CreepyMonotone above tropes]], some of her movements are...unsettling. See AnimationBump.
