%%* DelusionsOfEloquence* DelusionsOfEloquence: Prone to speaking this way.
* FauxAffablyEvil: She treats those she respects with kindness, but it's all a facade.
* HateSink: In a musical dedicated to exploring the delicate balance of good and evil and asks the question of whether people are born wicked or simply have wickedness thrust upon them, Madame Morrible stands out as the only character with no redeeming or tragic qualities at all. She's bigoted, greedy, duplicitous, cold and perfectly willing to [[spoiler:commit murder]] in order to get what she wants, all while lacking a FreudianExcuse like [[MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold Elphaba]] or [[LonelyAtTheTop Nessarose's]] and any positive qualities to balance out her negative ones, like those of [[SpoiledSweet Glinda]] or [[WellIntentionedExtremist the Wizard]]. Out of all the characters in the musical, she's the only one who's truly and unambiguously evil.

to:

* 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.

* ComicalNapDrool: Aaron Tveit plays Fiyero in the musical as someone who drools in his sleep, it's fitting with his affable social butterfly, intelligent, loveable and at times naive personality.
