* AGodAmI: She has a tendency to refer to herself as a goddess due to her abilities, which ranges from prideful boasting to full on delusions depending on the story.

* GodGuise: In her youth she was worshiped as a rain goddess until Xavier found her. In her 2014 series, the tribespeople admit that they were only humoring her because they needed the rain. They knew all along that she was "just" a crazy girl who could make rain, not a goddess. Storm in the present is rather embarassed by her past behavior.

* AdaptationalModesty: In the films and cartoons she doesn't have her usual LeotardOfPower from the comics - usually donning a more modest bodysuit. In ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' she shows a bit more skin, but still more modest than the comics.



* AmbiguouslyBrown: As noted below, she's African but has white hair and a blend of African, Caucasian and Asian features. This comes from an early idea to give her features from several different races, to resemble Gaia.



* ButNotTooBlack: Black )possibly biracial - her father was American, her mother Kenyan, but it was never made clear whether or not he was white), variably dark skin, but with white and Asian features, and blue eyes. She was supposed to have features of many races, to resemble Gaia. However, this largely depends on the artist. It's important to mention that this is not due to racism, but rather to late artist Dave Cockrum's intention to make her a "woman of the world".

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames: In all adaptations, she seems to be the lone aversion. In cartoons and films, she's called Storm more often than her real name. Presumably because it's less of a mouthful than Ororo.


Added DiffLines:

* CoolTeacher: In ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' she's portrayed as such, due to Wolverine and her being the only adults at the institute.

* AndNowYouMustMarryMe / WeCanRuleTogether: No less than five of Storm's long-term enemies, including SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom and '''{{DRACULA}}''', have had designs on making her their queen or consort as part of their villainous master plan.

* TokenMinority: Not within the X-Men itself, but often in various general Marvel Universe products. As Storm is arguably Marvel's most popular non-white superhero, it's not uncommon to see her in Marvel Universe group shots on backpacks, posters, lunchboxes, video games and other merchandise as the sole character of color. Then Marvel started including TheFalcon as well.

Added DiffLines:

**Several comics have implied that her family is [[UnevenHybrid descended from some goddess.]] They were also regarded as long line of witches, so it's question are her powers mutation or magic.

* SuperpowerLottery: She's often considered one of the most powerful X-Men out there, second only to the likes of ComicBook/XMan, Phoenix, or SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}.
