* HeelRealization: A large part of Episode 3 focuses on Beatrice realizing how cruelly she has been abusing her powers until that point. [[spoiler:She reforms, eventually even helping the Ushiromiya side of the game board, and ends up denying witches to have Battler win the game, causing her own demise. At the very end of the episode, all of this is revealed to only be an act to get Battler to voluntarily recognize the existence of witches.]]

* {{Deuteragonist}}: More evident in ''Chiru'', but with hindsight you can also see her this way in the first four arcs.

* {{Deuteragonist}}: More evident in ''Chiru'', but with hindsight you can also see her this way in the first four arcs. It progressively becomes very clear that Beatrice is just as much the main character of the story as Battler is. The entire mystery is about understanding who she is, where she comes from and what her motivations are.



* ImmuneToBullets: As [[spoiler:Natsuhi]] found out. However, it's subverted in later chapters which reveal that, when they actually ''do'' get hit, magical beings are ''especially'' susceptible to man-made weapons such as guns. [[spoiler:The manga reveals that Natsuhi's gun wasn't even loaded during her duel with Beatrice, since Sayo Yasuda removed the bullets beforehand.]]

* PsychopathicWomanchild: An explanation to her behavior given in [=Ep3=]. Virgilia describes her as a naive child who loves to play with toys without the fear to break them and also with a power so big that she hardly realises she can handle. She apparently sees nothing wrong with brutally murdering people over and over again because she can revive them any time she wants. [[spoiler:Subverted once we find out more about her real self and motivations.]]

* SophisticatedAsHell: In Episode 7 she describes her own speech style as "a mix of formality and rudeness". And indeed, she often goes into a Jessica-ish speech when screaming.

* TearfulSmile: She does this at least once before [[spoiler:her death]] in [=EP5=], upon the "Who... am I?" question to Battler in EP4 in the anime, and a couple of other times besides in the manga. There's a reason for it each time.

* WeaksauceWeakness: According to legend, Beatrice can be rendered powerless through spider webs or mirrors. [[spoiler:The spider webs are drawn from Kumasawa's stories about the youkai people believed would haunt the islands, and the mirrors are symbolic of how much Sayo hates them due to his/her low self esteem.]]

* {{Tsundere}}: {{Invoked|Trope}} at the end of the third game to manipulate Battler, but played straight from the fourth game onwards. She even shouts [[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana "Urusai! Urusai! Urusai!!!" (Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!)]] at some point. [[spoiler:Sayo Yasuda gave Beatrice this personality because Battler likes feisty women.]]

* UsedToBeASweetKid: According to the flashback at the beginning of Episode 3.

* UsedToBeASweetKid: According to the flashback at the beginning of Episode 3. 3, Beatrice was once a very sweet and innocent little girl who became a witch so she could achieve eternal happiness. She got what she wanted, but with that eternal happiness comes eternal boredom that she can only get rid of by abusing her powers to kill and revive people in sick ways. [[spoiler:While this scene never actually happened, it still foreshadows how Sayo Yasuda really was a sweet kid, but some traumatic revelations and having a lonely, almost friendless life drove him/her them to do some rather questionable things.]]



* WomanChild: Particularly in the VN and manga. In the third game, when she asks Virigilia for advice, she sounds less like a dignified witch and more like a little girl throwing a tantrum.

* TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf: This is the reason why one of Beatrice's weaknesses is said to be mirrors. [[spoiler:Namely because Sayo Yasuda hates them, since they remind him/her that s/he's not really a powerful, elegant witch like s/he pretends to be in order to cope with his/her low self-esteem.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foil}}: To Bernkastel, surprisngly. While both revel in the suffering of others, Lambda also happens to hold her title of Witch of Certainty in high esteem, and takes the duties that come with her position very seriously, whereas Bern only sees her witch status as a means to hurt others. Bern will also only help others if she can screw them over later or if she gets something out of it. Lambda can and does genuinely help others for the sake of it if she feels that they've earned it.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Tsundere}}: Beatrice believes her to be such in one of the earlier extra Tea Parties. It isn't obvious at first, [[HatesBeingAlone but it turns out to be more true than you'd think.]]
