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.

* EgomaniacHunter
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame

to:

* EgomaniacHunter
BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: If he wins the tournament, Calypso grants his wish... only for the "prey" to turn out to be Calypso himself, who distracts Catfish with a decoy and then guns him down, taking Catfish's head and prized rifle as trophies.
* 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.

* FauxAffablyEvil: Is often polite and courteous to the victors of his tournament, right up until he screws them over by deliberately misinterpreting their wishes.

Added DiffLines:

* LackOfEmpathy: Subverted. He ''does'' have empathy... he just wants to get rid of it.

* BadBoss: Her former employer in ''Black'', [[DisproportionateRetribution who sealed her face in the mask]] ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotHeinous just for spilling coffee on his files]]''. [[spoiler:The fact he was working on a [[BigBad Sweet Tooth mask]] was probably meant to be a hint at how he was EvilAllAlong.]]

* IWillFindYou: His motive in the reboot is to find "the one who got away" ([[spoiler: Marcus's daughter Sophie]]) and kill her, finishing what he started. [[spoiler: However, when he gets his wish, he learns that his daughter committed suicide a few years before the reboot game... by way of being BuriedAlive in her coffin. He then screams this trope against Calypso while he desperately tries to pry himself from the coffin. And while [[KilledOffForReal he doesn't get to fulfill this promise]], [[YouKilledMyFather his son is all too willing to see it through to the end]].]]

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: [[spoiler: ''Inverted'' in her ''Black'' ending - when given the FriendOrIdolDecision mentioned below, she invokes the trope by asking "[[MistreatmentInducedBetrayal Why couldn't he (her boss) be nice to me?]]" [[PayEvilUntoEvil Cue her grabbing the key, and sealing Mr. Kreel's fate]].]]
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler: In ''Black'', she elects to keep her mask on even though [[FriendOrIdolDecision she just murdered her old boss to get the key]] ([[ShaggyDogStory tossing away the key for good measure]]), and becomes a vigilante who seeks to PayEvilUntoEvil.]]
--> "[[spoiler: [[TheStoic It doesn't cry, and it doesn't look scared]], and [[CoolMask it will always be pretty]], [[OlderThanTheyLook even when I'm old and grey inside]].]]"

* DisneyVillainDeath: Gets one ([[spoiler: actually two]]) in the reboot during Grimm's boss fight against her. After damaging the Iron Maiden enough, she loses control of the mech and ends up sending it crashing into the bridge. She manages to grab hold on to the bridge and the final battle begins there. Then after the battle, she starts to lose her grip and eventually falls to the depths of the canyon while screaming,"[[AtomicFBomb FUCK YOU]] [[SayMyName MR GRIMM!]]"
** It then turns out to be a RasputinianDeath. In an obvious ShoutOut to ''Twisted Metal 2'', the Iron Maiden's OneWingedAngel form is [[spoiler: its head]]. Only after you destroy it does she play this trope straight, again.

* FriendOrIdolDecision: Slightly modified. [[spoiler: In ''Black'', she has to choose between the key for her mask or the life of the cruel maskmaker who put it on her to begin with. [[PayEviluntoEvil It didn't take her long to decide who to save]].]]
** [[spoiler: Ironically, [[BecomingTheMask she chose to keep the mask on anyway]], and [[ShaggyDogStory simply tossed away the key she sacrificed her old boss for]], claiming "[[TheStoic It doesn't cry, and it doesn't look scared]], and [[CoolMask it will always be pretty]], [[OlderThanTheyLook even when I'm old and grey inside]].". It gets worse in ''Twisted Metal Lost'', which reveals she's still growing while the mask is not, which is now causing outright brain damage.]]

* PayEvilUntoEvil: [[spoiler: Her ''Black'' ending features this heavily - first, she seals her BadBoss [[CruelAndUnusualDeath inside an Iron Maiden]] [[LaserGuidedKarma for him sealing her inside the mask]], and then sets out to stop other men like him from doing bad things to good people]].
