** The Lois of the New52 gained Superman's powers after ''[[ComicBook/SupermanSuperLeague The Final Days of Superman]]'', and even got her own title, ''ComicBook/{{Superwoman}}''.

* WeakWilled: During [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks the Golden Age]] she was [[HypnotizeThePrincess frequently hypnotised]]. Oddly this was much more a trait of the Golden Age Lois who was assertive and had a very strong personality than the less feisty [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] version.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: In live action adaptations Lois has been played by actress slightly older than the actor playing Clark Kent despite the two characters being roughly the same age, or, as was the case in Donnerverse films, Lois being the younger one[[note]]A scene deleted from the theatrical cut of ''Film/{{Superman}}'' (but present in the DVD and television cut) has a teenage Clark run pass a train with a pre-teen Lois on board.[[/note]]. This is probably to reflect her hardbitten, StreetSmart reporter persona against Clark's farmboy naivetie.

* LovesMyAlterEgo: A RunningGag during [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks the Golden Age]] and - mainly - [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks the Silver Age]]. In fact, her Silver Age's iteration currently provides the page image of this trope.

* LivingEmotionalCrutch: More modern takes on Lois portray her as serving this for Superman showing that he would fall apart, go insane or evil without her.
** This arguably began with ''Film/SupermanTheMovie'' where the finale showed that Superman would rather disregard his father's advice and turn back time then live without Lois.
** The ''Franchise/{{DCAU}}'' had one alternate universe, ''Brave New World'' show that without Lois, Superman would become a KnightTemplar puppet of Lex Luthor. When Prime!Lois accidentally visits this world, she sneers at this trope by mocking AU!Superman, "Look at you now, married to Luthor". A later AU however averts this, ''A Better World'' shows Justice Lord!Superman becoming a dictator while keeping Lois under house arrest.
** ''ComicBook/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' takes this to the extreme with Injustice!Supes becoming a DarthVaderClone in grief over [[spoiler:The Joker making him accidentally kill a pregnant Lois]].
** ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' has Superman telling Lois that she is "my world" and [[spoiler:a vision by Batman shows that in a BadFuture, Superman becomes a dictator in grief over losing Lois]].

** When DC launched their ComicBook/New52 program, Lois and Clark's relationship was retconned out of existence (to make room for a romance between Superman and ComicBook/WonderWoman) and Lois had a new boyfriend named Jonathan Carroll. He disappeared sometime prior to the [[ComicBook/SupermanTruth "Truth"]] arc, and as of ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' Lois and Clark are very much together.

* ParentalSubstitute: Earth-2 Lois Lane became this to Comicbook/PowerGirl when she and Clark took the young Kryptonian woman in. Post-Crisis Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} also became kind of a daughter to Lois.

* MamaBear: She proves to be this with her son Jonathan - when the Eradicator tries to kill him because of his half-Kryptonian[=/=]half-Human nature, Lois ends up discovering Batman's Hellbat Armor, a suit of armor designed to go toe-to-toe with friggin' ''Darkseid'', and using it to pummel the construct. Hell, Lois herself tell the Eradicator not to mess with the baby bear(her son Jonothon) when the mama bear(herself) is around as she beat him.
