* PromotedToPlayable: Ellie becomes a playable character in the Winter chapter. She's also the only playable character in the DLC.



* WeakButSkilled: Ellie doesn't have the physical strength of Joel nor his stamina, but by making good use of stealth, she can be as much as a OneManArmy as him.

** To a lesser extent, the Beretta Model 70 Joel gives her. It's the only weapon she uses [[spoiler:when AI controlled]] that isn't her switchblade.

* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She acts very mature for a 14 year old, though it's pretty much justified seeing as she's been raised in a post-apocalyptic world.

* PrecociousCrush: He instantly falls for Ellie and tries to boost his age when she asks. She, as shown later at the university, is starved for interaction from other kids and [[BigSisterInstinct instantly befriends him.]]

Added DiffLines:

** During an argument, he also [[spoiler: tells Ellie she has no idea about loss, even though she has obviously lost her parents and it's very likely that they're dead. Zig-zagged in that later on he expresses some sympathy that her friend turned right in front of her.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MessianicArchetype: [[spoiler: The method that would be used to make a cure from her would end up killing her. Subverted when Joel decides to doom humanity just to save her]].

* ComingOfAgeStory: She's introduced as a plucky kid (albeit one who already has some serious trauma and cynicism under her belt), and ends the game on the cusp of womanhood. Compare her trying-too-hard toughness when she first meets Joel to how she interacts with him in the final cutscene.



* LittleMissSnarker: With no functioning society to grow up in, Ellie tends to act and make jokes of things girls her age don't stereotypically do.

* LittleMissSnarker: With no functioning society to grow up in, Ellie tends to act and make jokes of things girls her age don't stereotypically do. That being said, this is presented more as a sign of ''im''maturity; as the plot takes a turn for the worse and stealth takes up more of the gameplay, it becomes clear that Ellie is at her strongest (and most dangerous) when she's silent. Can't hear her? It's a good time to say your prayers.


Added DiffLines:

* SadClown: She usually has a snappy comeback or a pun ready, but "Left Behind" and the main campaign establish that she's been through a lot. The ending makes it clear that she's felt every death she's witnessed.

Added DiffLines:

* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Though given the setting, it's hardly a surprise. Ellie herself implies that orphaned children are more common than not.


Added DiffLines:

* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: Ellie's mother Anna is described as having been a very loving woman who had enough foresight to write a letter to Ellie before her death. Ellie keeps it in her backpack, and expresses a desire to make her proud.
