* '''Downplayed''': ???



* '''Deconstructed''': The story goes into some detail about the kind of person who would utterly forget their friends. Carol was so obsessed with answering the Call that she gradually started ignoring poor Noel entirely, causing their friendship to end and her to forget him. Carol looks rather callous and unheroic when the reveal happens as a result.
* '''Reconstructed''': Carol has made many friends on her adventures, and besides, Noel drifted away largely on his own.

* '''Justified''':
** Carol is suffering LaserGuidedAmnesia.
** Noel was very meek and unnoticed, but Carol, being the nice girl she was, hung out with him because she didn't like seeing him alone. She forgot about him because she had too many other friends at the time, and can't really remember any of her friends from childhood that didn't grow up with her.
** Noel made sure that he was forgettable as a child, even if he didn't know what he was going to do in the future.

* '''Enforced''': "Carol needs an emotional moment here. I know! We'll reveal that the BigBad and her have history together. The audience will eat that up!"
* '''Lampshaded''': "Wow, you've changed... You're taller, you're not six years old any more... Oh, and last time I saw you, you weren't evil. Love what you've done with your hair, by the way."
