** Interestingly, this becomes a DefiedTrope halfway through her story line; after being knocked out by Minion's explosion, Dollface had a flashback to the moment where Mr. Kreel locked her inside the mask - [[LateToThePunchline and then realized she didn't do anything wrong]], and even if if she had, [[DisproportionateRetribution Mr. Kreel's "punishment" was grotesquely disproportionate compared to her accident]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: The 2012 reboot does not retain his below mentioned backstory, instead suggesting he's the devil. Also, the Twisted Metal tournament seems to exist just to satisfy his love for death and suffering. One of the locations involved a shopping center during Christmas, because he loves watching innocents die horribly during a time when they should be happy.

to:

* EgomaniacHunter

* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame
EgomaniacHunter: His entire characterization is built around this.
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: He thinks humans are the only worthy game left for him to hunt, having defeated every other worthwhile quarry on the planet.



* NeverMessWithGranny

to:

* NeverMessWithGrannyBeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In classic Twisted Metal style, if she wins, Calypso straps her to a chair with eye-opening gizmos ala ''Literature/AClockWorkOrange'' and forces her to watch daytime television endlessly.
* MotiveDecay: She started out wanting to just end the tournament, but when she wins, she declares instead that she just wants to do "nothing but watch daytime TV".
* NeverMessWithGranny: She drives a monster truck, has a pet pit bull, and entered the tournament to kill everyone who wrecked her home town.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Despite being a complete JerkAss with granting wishes, Calypso can be pretty funny in really making them as ironic as possible.
