* TakeALevelInBadass: Still Leo. He goes from She's helpless boy toy to a man capable of reducing Ayesha to typical woman's tricks like tears to get her own way.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Both Leo and Holly have their doubts about Immortality but if that's the price of staying with She they'll accept it - reluctantly.

* RealMenLoveJesus: Leo refuses to give up his religious convictions. He's willing to tolerate Ayesha's mysticism and personality cult but refuses to take part in it himself. "I don't understand your religion, but I understand my own. I will not take part in what I believe to be idolatary."




to:

* StopWorshippingMe: Leo again. He flatly refuses to accept the veneration of She's worshippers as her consort.

''She'' was Haggard's second big success after ''Literature/KingSolomonsMines'', and was followed by a sequel and two prequels, one the story of Ayesha's early life and the other an InevitableCrossover in which the protagonist of ''King Solomon's Mines'' visits the hidden valley. It has been filmed multiple times, including a 1965 [[HammerHorror Hammer Film Productions]] movie starring Ursula Andress as Ayesha, Creator/PeterCushing as Holly, and Creator/ChristopherLee as Bilali (one of the tribesmen who worship She).

* FloweryElizabethanEnglish: When the protagonists first meet the followers of ''she-who-must-be-obeyed'', they speak a language described as "some dialect into which Arabic entered very largely." The English translation of this dialect is rendered in an Elizabethan style, e.g. "art thou awake, stranger?"

* DecadentCourt: The royal court of Kaloon definitely qualifies. The king is a psychopath and the queen is a sociopath and their counselors and associates are about what you'd expect.
