* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: The Catholic and Orthodox churches believe she was bodily taken up into heaven at the end of her life as part of an event called the Assumption or Dormition. The difference lies in whether they believe she actually died first or not. The Orthodox and some Catholics hold that she did (hence ''Dormition'', "falling asleep" i.e. death) while other Catholics believe she didn't.

** Played straight at the time of Jesus' birth; there's a reason she got her title. Possibly averted afterward, depending on whether you translate references to Jesus' "brothers and sisters" as literal or metaphorical.

However, for Protestants, the relationship between her and Jesus is merely surrogate mother and son, and the latter occasionally rejected her request.

** Some believe that by agreeing to be Jesus' surrogate mother, she had effectively [[ThePromise made a vow before God]] to remain a virgin her whole life, and that her marriage to Joseph was never to involve sex, only to ensure that she would be protected and provided for when her time as (the equivalent of) a {{Miko}} was up.

* {{Miko}}: According to extrabiblical tradition (and Islam), she was the equivalent of this, from a very young age.



* MumLooksLikeASister: Depictions of her at the time of the Passion of the Christ, including Michelangelo's famous Pieta, portray her as extremely young for the mother of the thirty-three-year-old Jesus.



* ProperLady: Considered by some to be the TropeCodifier.

* ProperLady: Considered by some to be the TropeCodifier. TropeCodifier, due to being seen as the perfect mother figure as the mother of Jesus and the [[TeamMom spiritual mother]] to His followers. She is popularly depicted as beautiful and graceful, humble, chaste, wise, and altruistic, being held up as the perfect woman, and many Christian (especially Catholic) and Muslim girls are encouraged to be more like her.

* AgentScully: Joseph is, quite understandably, very skeptical about the claim that his fiancée had a miraculous virgin pregnancy rather than sleeping with another man. Fortunately, he comes around when the ArchangelGabriel explains it to him in a dream.
