* BreakTheCutie: In [=EP6=], Lambda says that [[spoiler:Bern was originally a piece in a game that the Game Master made {{Unwinnable}}. (Lambda did not explicitly say whether the game was of the [[UnwinnablebyMistake Unwinnable by Mistake]] or the [[UnwinnablebyDesign Unwinnable by Design]] variety.) The Game Master then abandoned Bern as a piece and left her to fend for herself. Bern eventually [[BeyondTheImpossible ended up winning the game anyway]] and gained the title of Witch of Miracles. The manga implies that the game in question was ''Higurashi'', which would make sense given her origins.]] While this does explain her cruelty however, it's no excuse for it.



* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler: It's almost a WhamLine when she does Rika's VerbalTic. A few blink-and-you'll-miss-it lines confirm that she is not only all the dead Rikas from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', but she remembers ''everything'' from it up to Saikoroshi-hen wherein she was purged from Rika's consciousness.]]

** Literally. When [[spoiler:Lambdadelta]] tries to attack her with magic, Featherine just says that she doesn't like the development of the story, ''[[TimeStandsStill stops time]]'' and begins '''[[RewritingReality editing the script of the story herself]]'''. Not willing to write a fight scene at the moment, she starts from the end of the fight where she dictates Lambdadelta was smashed into a bookshelf and had all her limbs severed. She doesn't even think about ''how'' she accomplished such a brutal attack, deciding to "figure it out later". When Featherine starts time again, [[spoiler:Lambdadelta]] ends up just as she wrote, with "what the ''fuck'' just happened" being her last conscious thoughts before dying.

* ContraltoOfDanger: Creator/YukariTamura gives Bernkastel the same deep voice she used for [[VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry Rika's]] true self. While she doesn't start as antagonistic, once Bernkastel gets the chance to get her hands dirty she shows why she's known as "The Cruellest Witch".

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Bernkastel is regarded as the strongest Witch, but even ''she'' knows not to get on Featherine's bad side. It makes sense when you realize Featherine is not just a Witch, but a Creator as well. She may just be a Witch in name only. Even [[spoiler:Lambdadelta]], who was more than holding her own against Bernkastel earlier, is ''terrified'' at the thought of having Featherine as an opponent.

* RapunzelHair: Depending on the author, her hair can be waist-length or longer.



* AdaptationalHeroism: Her more malicious aspects are considerably toned down in the anime.



* HiddenHeartOfGold: For most of the series, Lambdadelta seems to be the same as all the other witches; selfish, cruel, petty and only caring about seeking entertainment through the suffering of others. However, later on there are circumstances in which she helps out the heroes even though she's supposed to remain neutral, always under the excuse that she's doing it for her own amusement. This shows the best in [=EP8=], where [[spoiler:she's willing to risk her life to give Battler and Ange enough time to get the key of Book of the Single Truth and even goes as far as to try to face off Featherine, ''the most powerful witch in the setting''. [[CurbStompBattle She didn't accomplish much]], but it's the thought that counts.]]

Lambdadelta actually does pretty well on her own... [[OhCrap until Featherine shows up]].
