* DynamicEntry: Vajra performs an ''epic'' one against [[spoiler:Bonesaw and Hatchet Face]].



* HeelFaceTurn: Improbably enough, [[spoiler:''Crawler'', in part thanks to carefully directed and hidden emotion-inducing blasts from Gallant and well-prepared manipulation from Vajra. He decides to adopt a new cape name: Defiant.]]
** [[spoiler: Bonesaw, potentially. "I think they're due a little teenage rebellion", indeed.]]
** [[spoiler: The Undersiders adopt a new team name, take Amy Dallon in as their new leader, and join The Guild.]]



* {{Invisibility}}: One of Taylor's Charms handles this, to an exceptional degree. It's so good that it even bypasses the Manton Effect--meaning that it even works on the likes of the Endbringers. It does have its drawbacks, though: bypassing the Manton Effect means that she isn't ''protected'' by the Manton Limit, either. Taylor finds this out the hard way when she runs into Vista the first time.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: Jack Slash either thought it'd be fun to torture Iris of Innovation into the Slaughterhouse 9's newest member, or that keeping it in his hands would torment Taylor. Iris of Innovation's personality "core" got overridden by Vision of Vengeance, who in turn decided to make Jack's existence an exercise in excruciating pain, followed by death.]]

* IAmNotLeftHanded: [[spoiler:The Endbringers take things up a notch or ''ten'' whenever they're coming after Taylor. Behemoth tries to kill her with his death aura from ten times its normal range, only for it to fail because of her defensive Charms. He also uses lightning attacks from three times their normal range when hunting Taylor. Simurgh does away with the Endbringer schedule altogether and dive-bombs Taylor and The Cradle ''from orbit'' at ''Mach 114''.

* SupportPartyMember: Taylor is severely lacking in direct combat capabilities, and has to rely almost entirely on her own tinker-tech creations for offense, defense, and mobility. The addresses the mobility and defense aspects when she finally completes her suit of flying PoweredArmor, but it isn't until [[spoiler:just after the Slaughterhouse 9 attack Philadelphia]] that she completes her offensive tool: a variable-yield railgun made to look like a tinker-tech crossbow. She tries to stick to her real strengths--command, control, coordination, communication, stealth, scouting, battlefield awareness, surgery/first aid, distraction, and harassment--whenever possible, but it doesn't always work out that way. [[spoiler: Especially when the Endbringers seem to really have it out for you personally.]]

** One of Vajra's Charms allows her to rapidly grow crystalline armor out of her body. Fitting, considering that her power [[spoiler:was to do the same thing with bone in her old Case-53 body.]]



* JerkassHasAPoint: Glenn Chambers points out that Taylor needs to be very careful about avoiding "dark Simurgh" comparisons...or using her terror-inducing anima banner. Or her swarms of dark insects in public. He's at least reasonable about it, though, and Taylor comes to respect him.



* KilledMidSentence: [[spoiler:Glory Girl, in the process of saving her mother from Behemoth. She has just enough time to realize that she's stuck and screwed, turn and call out to Gallant before Behemoth's lightning bolt makes her explode before his eyes.]]



* LightningBruiser: First Prayer of Perfection, formerly known as [[spoiler:Marrow, a Case-53 hero in the Philadelphia Protectorate branch]], embodies this. Extremely tough, capable of generating her own, highly durable crystal armor, a set of thrusters for high-speed movement, super-strength, the ability to shoot shards of crystal that wreck all but the toughest targets, and a lightning-enhanced punch that can obliterate things thought to be NighInvulnerable. She takes up a new, highly approrpriate cape name after the Exaltation: Vajra.
* MemeticBadass: Following [[spoiler:Behemoth's surprise attack on Brockton Bay, Weaver gains such a reputation.]] Understandable, given that [[spoiler: Behemoth hunted her personally and exclusively for a big chunk of the battle, and Weaver used that to bait him on a chase through the less populated areas while the heroes scrambled and organized a response. When Behemoth gave up on hunting her, she went back into the fight to try to provoke him into focusing back on her. Near the end of the battle, when Behemoth reached The Cradle and was trying to destroy it, Weaver started ''throwing rocks at Behemoth's face'' while cloaked to try to distract him.]] Her stern, almost dry expressions while in high-Clarity states also lent themselves well to a "Weaver Disapproves" meme that popped up in the following weeks.

* ArbitrarySkepticism: Few people are willing to believe Taylor about her true nature, the existence of a universe with magic, or about the dying god that is Autochthon. Recognizing that no one really would, she holds off on telling anyone these things for quite some time. Even when she tries to explain it the upper-echelons of the PRT and Protectorate, she's met with strong skepticism at best. Taylor and [[spoiler:Marrow]] thus decide to take matters into their own hands.



* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Both Miss Militia and Clarendon's gay principal have commented on her looks, mainly to forewarn her that a lot of other people are going to be interested.

* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: After [[spoiler:Simurgh dive-bombs Taylor at The Cradle]], Taylor realizes that [[spoiler:Simurgh can't actually see her in a precog sense, due to the Thinker-disrupting effects of Essence-based materials, and Simurgh can only predict Taylor's actions through logic. She thus decides on the most illogical, insane course of action available: rushing in and kicking Simurgh in the face. Not that it really does any damage, mind, but it ''felt'' satisfying.]]



** Vajra (formerly [[spoiler:Marrow]]) has the ability to extrude dozens of small "spider" machines that can regenerate lost tissue and repair damage, either in herself or in someone right next to her.
* HeroicSafeMode: Taylor enters this [[spoiler:during the Behemoth attack on Brockton Bay, unable to process her emotions as Behemoth rampages.]] She's enters a state of high Clarity (acting machine-like, extremely calm and composed, and ruthlessly logical)--which is very helpful at the time, but her lack of understanding of her own charms and the flaws in her Exaltation process prevent her from coming ''out of'' the state for quite some time. Thankfully, she learns how to prevent it from happening again.



** [[spoiler:Bakuda]] gets taken out by [[spoiler:one of her own bombs.]]
** [[spoiler:Simurgh]] tries to hijack The Cradle, and gets [[spoiler: most of her head melted off for her trouble.]]
