Added DiffLines:

* MySisterIsOffLimits: Falling under the "extended family" (of sorts) category, Wonder Woman does not approve of Conner's relationship with Cassie. Demonstrated by the time the latter two were kissing in midair and Wonder Woman grabbed Superboy by the collar and flung him into a mountain range.

Added DiffLines:

* BackFromTheDead: Donna Troy died at a Franchise/{{Superman}} robot's hands in ''Titans/Young Justice: Graduation Day'' #3 and was reborn right before ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis''.
* BashBrothers:
** Donna and Diana are this, and the two of them built a similar relationship with Cassie Sandsmark.
** Donna and Dick Grayson are often written this way in the pages of Teen Titans.
* BigBrotherMentor: Diana to Donna, although it's been a while since Donna's actually been mentored by Diana. Donna also serves as an older sister to Cassie.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The originals ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} -Kara Zor-El, blonde- Wonder Girl -Donna Troy, brunette- and ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} -Barbara Gordon, redhead- are this in the original universe and ''WesternAnimation/SuperBestFriendsForever''.


Added DiffLines:

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In ''ComicBook/{{Justice}}'', Donna and the rest of second-generation heroes (the Teen Titans, Supergirl, Batgirl, the Marvel family...) were mind-controlled by the Legion of Doom.


Added DiffLines:

* BroadStrokes: One of the approaches attempted by DC prior to ''Infinite Crisis'' to reconcile Donna Troy's backstory was every origin story is true.
* CanonDiscontinuity: DC ran an event called ''Origins & Omens'', which had each book featuring an ominous short story hinting at future plots. The Teen Titans story featured several major revelations, such as Blue Beetle kissing Wonder Girl; a plot point later ignored.
* CatFight: Cassie and Kara got into one in ''Girl Power''when Cassie wrongly thought Conner was cheating on her with Kara.
* CivvieSpandex: In a deliberate homage to her then-fallen boyfriend, Cassie's ''One Year Later'' costume consisted of jeans and a red tank top with her logo on it. Of course, most of her earlier outfits during the ''Young Justice'' era were not much different.
* ClarkKenting: Originally Cassie had the ingenuity to wear a black wig and goggles, though even then her costume was mainly thrown together from what was already in her closet. She ditched them after a situation where she had to chose between maintaining disguise and saving the day. In the version of Teen Titans starting in 2003, she does not have a secret identity, which caused problems finding a school that would take her.

Donna Troy Wonder Girl co-stars alongside ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} and ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} in Creator/LaurenFaust's ''WesternAnimation/SuperBestFriendsForever,'' while Cassie Sandsmark joined the cast of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' in season 2.


Added DiffLines:

* AbortedArc: Franchise/TeenTitans "Origins & Omens" back-up story foreshadowed a number of events which were supposed to affect the team, such as Blue Beetle hooking up with Wonder Girl. Nearly all of these were ignored when writer Sean [=McKeever=] was fired.
* AbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder: After ComicBook/{{Superboy}}'s death in ''Infinite Crisis'', Cassie and Tim Drake had a brief relationship (which could be interpreted as SexForSolace without having ever gone as far as sex), then break up. [[ComicBookDeath Then Superboy comes back from the dead]]. The pair are sure that he's going to be angry at them, but he's cool with it--hey, it's not like they knew his death was temporary.
* ActionGirl: Whether we are talking about ''THE'' TropeCodifier in comics or her successors, any of the Wonder Girls are powerful and highly-trained warriors.
* AnimalWrongsGroup: In one story, Wonder Girl has to deal with an animal rights group who thought that ''hydras'' were nice friendly critters.
* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: In ''Comicbook/AmazonsAttack'', Queen Hippolyta tricks Cassie and Kara into Supergirl and believing she can end the war if they kidnap the President and bring him to her in order to engage in peace talks. Predictably, their plan goes awry: the Amazons shot the Air Force One down and almost killed the President, and Kara and Cassie's reputations suffered a severe blow. After fending an Amazon squad off, Kara flies to New York to help, although Cassie points out they got into this mess because of acting rashly and unthinkingly.
-->'''Wonder Girl:''' But we were only trying to--\\
'''Supergirl:''' Doesn't matter. I have to make up for this somehow, before it's too late. I have to balance the scales.\\
'''Wonder Girl:''' How? By flying off half-cocked again, after what we just did...?\\
'''Supergirl:''' I can't do nothing, Cassie!
* BlushSticker: For whatever reason, Wonder Girl has permanent blush stickers in ''ComicBook/TeenTitans Year One''.
* BreakingTheBonds: In ''ComicBook/Supergirl2005'' story "Girl Power", Cassie tries to bind Kara with her magic, unbreakable lasso, but Supergirl shrugs it off.

* WhatTheHellHero: After ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', Franchise/WonderWoman decides to retire for a while and takes off for parts unknown without explaning Donna and Cassandra why. In ''Wonder Woman Vol. 3'' issue #2, Cassie vents her anger on her:
-->'''Cassandra:''' Diana...? Is it really you?\\
'''Diana:''' It's really me, Cass. You okay?\\
'''Cassandra:''' Am I okay? Let's see... The gods abandoned us. Paradise Island disappeared. My boyfriend was murdered... and the person I looked up to more than anyone else in the world... left without saying a word.\\
'''Diana:''' I was trying to protect you.\\
'''Cassandra:''' You deserted me. Me AND Donna. And now, for all we know, she could be dead.

Enter Donna Troy. The Comicbook/TeenTitans had received their own series with Wonder Girl still in the line-up even though her own creator, Creator/BobKanigher, had declared her Retgonned in ''Wonder Woman'' #158 in 1965 (although in a very tongue-in-cheek way). So what was Wonder Girl? A time-displaced Diana or another being all together? Creator/MarvWolfman and Creator/GilKane sought to answer these questions in ''Teen Titans'' #22. This new Wonder Girl was not a young Princess Diana, she wasn't even of Amazon descent! She was a baby saved from a fire by Wonder Woman who was not able to save the child's parents and not being able to find new ones for her, Diana brought the young orphan to Themyscira to be raised as an Amazon. Given the same powers as Wonder Woman by a Purple Ray crafted by her Amazonian sisters, Donna Troy becomes Wonder Girl and dons an entirely new costume composing of a red full-body (sans sleeves) leotard adorned with stars, a belt with the Wonder Woman 'W' as its crest, black boots, wore her hair down to a past-the-shoulder style, and kept her bracelets.
