* BurgerFool: In ''A Thief's End'', when Nate ponders what it'd be like to work for a "paranoid psychopath" like Henry Avery, Elena jokes that it sounds like her first boss. Nate assumes that her first boss was a TV producer, but much to his amusement, Elena reveals that it was her manager... at a place called ''Macho Nacho''! Hey, it was a high-school job, and is clearly a touchy subject for her all these years later. Nate even asks if she had to wear "[[BadJobWorseUniform one of those hats]]", and she dodges the question.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: When she and Nate are surrounded by pirates in the opening chapter of ''Drake's Fortune'', Nate hands her a gun, which she takes without hesitation despite her inexperience, showing that she's certainly more ActionGirl than a damsel journalist.

** She normally likes to keep herself out between other's affairs and wars, even it connects to her heritage. However, in ''The Lost Legacy''; [[spoiler: when realizing a city will be blown up by Asav's bomb, she wholeheartedly decides to save the day.]]

* ClingyJealousGirl: Downplayed but she certainly doesn't like how much Elena distracts Nate when they first meet.
* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: She tries to be a realist but a lot of her decisions end up not having the best outcomes.

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:By the end of ''Lost Legacy'', she's become fully heroic. Arguably more so than Nathan. She foils a terrorist attack at great personal risk, and this ''after'' she has captured and gained the Tusk of Ganesh, making it a WhatYouAreInTheDark moment, and then she does what Nate and most fictional archaeologists almost never do, she gives the Tusk to the Indian Ministry of Culture for the sake of a "finder's fee", graduating from thief and treasure hunter to actual archaeologist]].

* {{Hinduism}}: ''The Lost Legacy'' implies that Chloe is Hindu though non-practicing.
* InformedAbility: Chloe is allegedly a fantastic get-away driver but we have seen absolutely no proof of this in the game where this is first brought up. Lampshaded in ''Drake's Deception'' when Charlie mentions Chloe is "the best driver in the business" and Nate replies "I've heard that." The original claim turns into a BrickJoke when she does drive the team away from Marlowe's men in ''Drake's Deception'', and she has a more extended car chase in the comics. She does more driving in ''The Lost Legacy'', but it's not anything that Drake hasn't done before.
** In ''The Lost Legacy'' there is a trophy called "The Best Driver in the Business" its gotten in The Western Ghats by driving from the Gate of Halebidu to the Waterfall Fortress and back again in under 3 minutes, its tough even if you know the best path.

* BetaCouple: She and [[spoiler:Charlie Cutter]] are hinted to be a secondary couple to Nathan and Elena by the time of ''Deception''. Though he isn't mentioned at all by Chloe or anyone in ''The Lost Legacy''.



* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: At the end of ''Among Thieves'', she decides to give up on pursuing Nate after realizing his strong feelings for Elena.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While Nate leans more toward the ''heart of gold'' Chloe tends to lean more toward jerkiness but even at her worst it tends to be because she is worried about the people she cares about and the fact that they wont stop risking their lives for altruism. In ''The Lost Legacy'' she slowly loses the jerk part as she grows closer to Nadine and becomes more of an enemy rather then rival to Asav.

* MsFanservice: Chloe always wears tight pants and shirts that show off her cleavage. Even in ''The Lost Legacy'' which has her more covered up, she still wears skin tight jeans.

* UngratefulBastard: Nate goes through all the trouble of shooting through Lazarevic's train just to rescue her. But when he finally reaches her, she stubbornly refuses, still sore at Nate for trying to save an innocent rather then just run while they can..

* WetBlanketWife: Elena tries her best to avert being this trope during ''A Thief's End'', while Sully chides Nate for treating her this way. Indeed, Elena even encourages Nate to take on a potentially risky job in Malaysia because she can sense he's a little bored and [[spoiler:in the end, Nate and Elena resolve this by becoming legal archaeologists, and full time partners and co-workers]].

* GoodOldFisticuffs: Generally played straight in all the games as he easily beats up soldiers and mercenaries and whatnot, but finally [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in two instances in the very last game, ''A Thieves End''. [[spoiler:Nate, who learned everything about fighting from brawling in the streets, proves not much of a match for the obviously highly trained Nadine Ross; his wild swings fail to even graze her and she handily kicks his ass in both their fights.]]

* TheCynic: In her viewpoint, she figures the only one you can trust is yourself and that there's no point in helping others. Apparently she's been through some past drama to get this mindset, though the game never really elaborates.

* HarsherInHindsight: The way Chloe talks about her father's obsession with the Tusk of Ganesh sounds a lot like Nate's obsession with his quest in ''Drake's Deception''. No wonder she twice tried to talk Nate out of it and then bailed before he could send her away like her father did.

* ExperiencedProtagonist: By the time of the first game, Drake has already been in various escapades. This is true even for prequels like the comics. ''Uncharted 3'' and ''Uncharted 4'' confirms he's been getting into and out of trouble since he was young.
