* TheSavageIndian: Nearly every Non-Vinkun Ozian's opinion of the inhabitants of the Vinkus. Fiyero is mentioned as being one of the books' NativeAmericans, the problem is that Fiyero, like most of the other POC end up dead and while they are alive they are viewed as savages and barbarians – and prejudice against them is regarded mildly as “snobbery.” The flip side is that, in a book full of rather unpleasant characters, the POC tend to be some of the very few that are genuinely decent people.

* LadykillerInLove: In the musical, he gets the entire female population of Shiz University pining after him within hours of arriving on campus and he instantly hooks up with G(a)linda. Then he falls in love with Elphaba so hard that his life thereafter is spent trying to find her after she disappears from the public eye.

to:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Fiyero tries to remain aloof and entirely self-centered and succeeds for a little while, but ultimately when the chips are down he fails. Fiyero is also the first person we see in the musical who doesn’t scream/flinch/run away/etc when he first sees Elphaba. He is utterly unfazed. Already we start seeing that her being green doesn’t matter in the slightest to him. Even his joke about her being green is one of the tamest in the show. He doesn’t call her an artichoke like Glinda does or any other sort of rude name meant to demean her for being green. He just says “Maybe the driver saw green and thought it meant go”. Even if he doesn’t see anything WRONG with her being green, being green is still unusual. We INTERPRET that moment as a joke because that’s the expectation, but all we all know his INTENT is simply “Avaric was surprised, give the guy a break”. After that point he doesn’t mention her being green again.
* LadykillerInLove: In Despite showing any real signs of being a 'ladykiller', in the musical, he still gets the entire female population of Shiz University pining after him within hours of arriving on campus and he instantly hooks up with G(a)linda. Then he falls in love with Elphaba so hard that his life thereafter is spent trying to find her after she disappears from the public eye.

* UnexpectedVirgin: In the books Fiyero mentions that until he married his childhood bride Sarima, he was a virgin and never had an affair until he reunited with Elphaba. In the musical Sarima doesn't exist and judging by the deleted lyrics in ALAYM there is a very high chance that he was still a virgin when he ran away with Elphaba.
--> '''Deleted solo in As Long As You're Mine''': What am I doing? What's this I feel? The boy who was certain, that love isn't real. Tell me it's hopeless; Tell me it's wrong. There's still no denying desire so strong.
