Auto and BRIDGET, [[ItDoesntMeanAnything for a long time.]] [[ItMeantSomethingToMe And all along they were falling for each other.]]



** Having been augmented when she was in the earliest stages of puberty, Catherine initially didn't see her feelings for Carsten as anything more than typical teen infatuation, on top of initially believing that she was only feeling that way because he was the first male CATH-E she'd met, and erroneously assumed she'd be over the crush in short order.



** After an encounter with Inferno cost her her voice, Korinna is left thoroughly intimidated of robots, particularly sentient ones. Since she works with a resistance group that's fighting for sentient robots and has several of them among their ranks, this is a problem.

[[spoiler: She loses the phobia upon meeting Pan and Persephone, as [[ChildrenAreInnocent them acting like human children]], on top of the fact that Brad and MN would have had no reason to want kids if they were still running on their base programming, convinced her that there was little real difference between sentient robots and sentient humans.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ObliviousGuiltSlinging: Catherine winds up on both ends of this trope at separate points.
** She's on the receiving end in "Hundreds of these Anniversaries"; when McCrea's commemoration speech includes an [[ToAbsentFriends in memoriam]] to those lost in the past, and he glances at the spot among the captains where she'd be standing and chokes up, she(hiding behind her CATH-E helmet so no-one knows who she is yet) realizes that they actually think her to be dead, rather than in stasis like she'd assumed.
** She instigates this trope in the prologue of "Unmasked"; [[spoiler: Shortly before [[TheMole "Korinna"]] is set to be captured so she can spill the beans on an upcoming GDA meeting to WEIA, Catherine visits her and gives her a trinket designed after the Twin Jet Nebula as a belated Christmas gift. When Korinna asks why she felt the need to do this, Catherine talks about how she joined the GDA because she was tired of feeling so isolated, and only snapped out of it enough to do so because Korinna came to visit her. Bonus points for the fact that Catherine joining the GDA was the last thing Korinna wanted ''because'' she still planned on bringing it down and didn't want who she saw as an innocent child to be caught further in the crossfire, as well as the fact that this comes after they started calling each other sisters(and Catherine keeps referring to her as "sis" throughout the conversation).]]

Added DiffLines:

** A huge part of Catherine's CharacterDevelopment after her transformation is her learning this, since she felt very out-of-place and isolated in her new form that she saw as a "limbo" between humans and robots.

[[spoiler: Then gets turned on it's head after Laurie [[BecomingTheMask embraces the "Korinna" she acted as during her covert]] and became an OfficialCouple with fellow GDA member Bruce, making them this trope in WE's eyes but not the Colony's.]]

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Adaptoids can determine the complete specs of any robot after a quick scan. This is necessary to allow them to accurately shapeshift into them.



* AccidentalKiss: Auto and BRIDGET's FirstKiss, when all the robots had been turned in humans, was pretty much an accident where [[FallingINtoHisArms BRIDGET tripped, Auto caught her in his arms before she fell,]] and they kissed on impulse. [[KissingUnderTheInfluence At the time, they both tried to persuade themselves that it was due to their being trapped in humans bodies,]] [[ItDoesntMeanAnything since feelings and emotions were humans defects.]] [[EveryoneCanSeeIt However,]] [[ItMeantSomethingToMe they couldn't stop thinking about it...]]

** Pan and Persephone to a lesser extent; Less than five minutes of knowing they exist and less than a minute of talking to them are enough to convince Korinna once and for all that sentient robots are a thing.

Added DiffLines:

* ThatManIsDead: An interesting case as the one saying it(or rather, implying it) isn't referring to themselves; When Catherine is interrogating Adam in Unmasked, Adam continues to call Korinna "Laurie"(her original name--Korinna was a covert name). Catherine's responses include her emphasizing Korinna's name, as if trying to tell him she's not Laurie anymore.

** Once the initial pride from having sowed the seeds for the GDA's fall wore off, this was all Korinna(Laurie to WE) could think as she realizes the fate she abandoned [[MoralityPet Bruce and Catherine]] to.

* HeroicSafeMode: After Korinna is taken from her in the middle of the GDA rescue in Unmasked, Catherine lapses into the [[ThisMeansWar berserker]] variant.



* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: When Catherine encounters Adam during her search for Korinna in Unmasked, she pins him to the wall with her ArmCannon and demands that he tell her where Korinna is being held. How well this works is ZigZagged. [[note]]First, he denies that he interrogated her and instead attempts to claim that WE was torturing her for information. Then, when Catherine hesitates upon hearing this, claims that if Catherine turns herself in he'll find out what became of Korinna before Catherine is taken for the mind control implant.(Note that he doesn't say Catherine will learn of her fate, nor does he say that Korinna will be released unharmed.) When Catherine doesn't buy it and threatens to "end the farce right now," Adam, now thoroughly jarred, tries to push her cannon away and ends up dropping the trinket he took from Korinna(which Catherine had given to her before her disappearance), which infuriates Catherine more as now there's no doubt in her mind that Adam was sent to interrogate Korinna and the torture story was bs. Adam recognizes that any further deception would doom him and instead fesses up that he did deal with her, but Brad had rescued Korinna shortly before he ran into Catherine. [[CassandraTruth Catherine is unconvinced]](the way he described the BRIDGET made it sound like a lucky guess to her, and the idea that Brad, who was on a different rescue team in a different area entirely, would just happen to find and rescue Korinna without any prior knowledge of her fate sounded too contrived for her), and decides to essentially take him hostage and make him take her to where Korinna was being interrogated, responding to Adam's threats of reinforcements by pressing her cannon against his back once he's secured. Adam passes out from fear at this point, and Catherine opts to just leave him there.[[/note]]

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Somewhat played with. Although Paul the VN-GO is an artist and not a warrior, he lives on the Hurricane - you'd think he had been through more than one dangerous battle, right? But as of Anniversaries, his number one bane that he'd run away screaming if he ever ran into in a dark alleyway is nothing more dangerous than Brad the BRIDGET. Considering that he has done an UnsettlingGenderReveal once, [[ItsPersonal he has his reasons.]]
