* BreakoutCharacter: In the MCU at least; she showed up in ''Film/{{Iron Man 2}}'' but was something of a BaseBreaker at the time. ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', however, gave her a huge boost in popularity and a lot of depth, along with giving future films a lot more to work with. Now she's the most prominent character without a film, and even that is likely to change soon.

* FamousNamedForeigner: Romanoff? At least one story has attempted to explain she's related to the historical Romanoffs to justify this. * FemmeFatale: Debuting in the Silver Age, Natasha never really functioned as a full-out Femme Fatale - she wined and dined Tony Stark while her goons stole his stuff, sure, but she never functioned as her namesake. More often, she acted like a full-on supervillain, hatching plots and commanding her henchmen to take down the Iron Man, and soon she became a superhero. Although she doesn't exactly fit the trope, it looms over her background, and certain writers attempt to play it straight.

** Another one from the ''Avengers'' movie that fans latched onto is the vague reference to 'Budapest'. Though the exact nature of what the incident is wasn't discussed beyond the fact that her and Clint 'remember Budepest very differently', but ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' has an extended scene where its revealed to have been one of the many atrocities she committed and regrets. * OlderThanTheyLook: Thanks to a Soviet supersoldier serum derivative, she’s around 80 years old and still looks fabulous.

to:
* SensualSlavs: She is a Russian FemmeFatale.FemmeFatale. Certain writers really play up the Russian-ness in combination with sensuality and take it to some really stereotypical and creepy places! Rule of thumb: if she's being written with a Russian accent, she's usually being written as FetishFuel.

* ShesGotLegs: In both the comics and the avengers assemble version, especially with her spycatsuit and crossing them.
