Added DiffLines:

* HesNotMyBoyfriend: A weird variation on this trope occurs when Beth decides to take her own life and Maggie, attempting to talk her out of it, cites Jimmy as a reason she has to keep living. While Beth doesn't actually deny that they're a couple, she points out that they were only casually dating for a couple of months prior to the ZombieApocalypse, and that despite the apparent opinions of the rest of the group they're not actually in any sort of committed relationship now.

* MsFanservice: She takes off her shirt and bra on more than one occasion, although the ShamefulStrip by the Governor in Season 3 is most definitely [[FanDisservice not fanservice]].

In Season 6, she and Glenn have a nude ShowerOfLove scene and the camera takes a [[MaleGaze long look]] at her from behind.

* CanonCharacterAllAlong: In a way, she ''does'' ended up filling Maggie's dead siblings role in the comics since most of them were either {{Posthumous Character}}s or AdaptedOut.

Added DiffLines:

* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Played with. Beth is obviously the blonde. Maggie's auburn hair is more evident in her first appearances (it was her actress' natural hair color), while Hershel's actor has brown hair in his youth.
* {{Breakout Character}}s: The Greenes are synonymous to the show in the same way the Grimses, Shane, Glenn, Daryl, Carol and Michonne are.


Added DiffLines:

* GenderEqualEnsemble: They were first introduced with three males (Hershel, Jimmy and Otis) and three females (Maggie, Beth and Patricia).


Added DiffLines:

* {{Iconic Sequel Character}}s: The Green family is so prominent in the show that some people would think they've been around since the beginning. They didn't even actually show up until the second season.


Added DiffLines:

* OnlyOneName: Otis, Patricia and Jimmy. In short, anyone who is not a Greene.


Added DiffLines:

* TokenReligiousTeammate: They're often seen praying together.


Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalHeroism: Since she dies early, she was not able to betray the group during the prison arc like in the comics.

* StepfordSmiler: Shades of it in Season 4. Although on the surface she still appears cheerful and upbeat, her total lack of reaction to her boyfriend's death implies that she has become emotionally numb to trauma.
** More or less confirmed in "Still"; she admits that she really just wants to lay down and cry but "they don't get to do that".

* AdaptationalBadass: She's a credible ActionGirl here compared to the comics. In fact, she is the most competent female member of the group in Season 3 until Michonne joins them. But as Michonne is literally a bad shot, Maggie is still the group's best ActionGirl in terms of firearms.
** Michonne shows some proficiency in firearms in the Season 5 episode, "Try." Still, one could argue that Maggie is much better at firearms than she is.

* BreakoutCharacter: Originally Hershel was to be killed off before the end of the second season (and again in the third), but Scott Wilson's warmth in his performance convinced the show runners to keep him on. After taking his level in kindness, Hershel became one of the most beloved characters on the show and eventually became one of the show's major characters, to the point his death became the emotional climax of the climactic prison war. Robert Kirkman even noted how hard it was to kill off Hershel, expressing sadness that Wilson wouldn't be on set the following year. Prior to the fourth mid-season finale, an entire video tribute was put together by the cast and crew, bidding farewell to Wilson and referring to him as a "legend". Two years after his character's death, Wilson was even the first induction into the ''Walking Dead'' Hall of Fame at the Season Six fan premiere event. It's very easy to say that of all the characters killed off in the show, Hershel is the one character ''everyone'' misses.

* CoolOldGuy: He's approaching seventy, but is an excellent shot and medic, dispenses good advice to the group, a little seen but witty sense of humor, and is extremely calm under pressure. [[BigBad The Governor]] even admits to liking him for the good man that he is when he's captured him.

* ADeathInTheLimelight: Season 4 heavily emphasized his role as the group's TeamDad. His ADayInTheLimelight episode was also [[VillainEpisode the last episode centered around the group]] before the mid-season finale where he eventually met his end.
** Scott Wilson remarked that even he started getting vibes that this trope was in effect, noting his speech about risking your life and "Internment" focusing on him were clear signs that Hershel's time was running out.

* ShipperOnDeck: He ultimately comes to love and respect Glenn as a worthy man for his daughter, and later happily gives his blessing for Glenn to marry Maggie.



* BrutalHonesty: When she first had sex with Glenn, she admitted it was partly because she was lonely and her options weren't numerous these days. Afterwards, she claims it was a one time thing.

* DeathWail: She lets out an agonizing one as her father is slowly, brutally executed that also doubles as an aggressive roar of war, since at the same time she's unleashing hell on The Governor's militia. She gives another agonizing one after seeing Daryl carrying a life-less Beth out of the hospital.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: When Gabriel tried to make small talk with her and let her know [[YouAreNotAlone she can talk to him about her family if she needs to]], she snaps at him and chastises him for leaving his flock to die. Gabriel may have needed it, but he ''was'' going out of his way to try to do ''something'' beneficial to the group since he's TheLoad, which is about the nicest thing he does in Season 5.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Ripping into Father Gabriel in "Them" makes Gabriel realize he's TheFriendNobodyLikes and plays a major part in him betraying them to Deanna and begging for them to be kicked out, which Deanna comes dangerously close to considering.
* NonActionGuy: Starting in Season 6 she is trying to sideline herself a bit since she's now pregnant, but will definitely take up arms if the situation calls for it.
