Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalUgliness: Bacchus is a rather exaggerated example. He is frequently depicted in media as either a effeminate PrettyBoy or a fat middle-aged man. The TV show ditches both representations and has him depicted as a fearsome-looking [[BigRedDevil demonic being with red skin]], [[FangsAreEvil sharp fangs]] and [[HornedHumanoid curved horns]]. Quite the departure indeed.

* BadassNormal: Xena, who has gone toe-to-toe with ''Ares'' at times (although, rampant speculation about her ancestry casts doubt on the 'normal' part of the title). Gabrielle becomes this [[TookALevelInBadass as the series progresses.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HonoraryPrincess: Born of innkeepers, Xena stayed single, and was at first a pirate, then a warlord, and finally a heroine. Then, where does the "warrior princess" of the title comes from? A friend of her, Lao Ma, used to call her this. Xena does have a lookalike (Diana) who is a princess by birth.

* AdventureTowns: Xena visited adventure villages weekly, as did Hercules in his show.
* AdventurerArchaeologist: Janice Covington, from a clip-show episode, was clearly this trope in action (she had a ''[[MoreDakka Gatling gun]]'' in her tent!) who was obsessed with finding evidence of Xena's travels. She fancied herself a direct descendent of Xena and was initially disappointed to find out that she was a descendant of Gabrielle instead.



* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Xena travels to Rome, Brittania, Africa, India, China, and Japan, yet never runs into language barriers.



%%* BoyishShortHair: Gabrielle provides the picture for this trope.

to:

%%* * BoyishShortHair: Gabrielle provides the picture for this trope.is a perfect example, with her [[AdrenalineMakeover impromptu haircut]] being a symbolic conclusion to her ComingOfAgeStory, and of her maturing from being Xena's young sidekick and protegee, to a mature, independent, ''strong'' woman, and fighter, with skills on par with Xena's own.



%%* ButtMonkey: Joxer.

* DumbBlonde: As mentioned on the ''HTLJ'' page, this is completely subverted with Aphrodite. She's extremely vapid and shallow ([[CharacterDevelopment at least at first]]), but very cunning.

%%* EverybodyWasKungFuFighting* EverybodyWasKungFuFighting: Not only does everyone (outside of [[RedShirt the mooks]]) know Kung-Fu, they know different styles: Karate, Capoeira, Judo, pressure point manipulation -- if it's vaguely martial art-like, a Xena character has used it.



* [[EvilDetectingDog Evil-Detecting Horse]]: Argo can tell something is wrong with Xena when [[GrandTheftMe Callisto's spirit takes control of her body]].
** In "Takes One to Know One," Xena mentions Argo has an instinct for danger.

* ThemeMusicPowerUp: They've got several variants on it, and the more energetically her theme song plays, the worse it's right about to be for the bad guys ''du jour.''

* AllAmazonsWantHercules: Averted? Parodied? Amazons have crushes on Joxer in ''Lyre Lyre Hearts on Fire'' and ''Kindred Spirits'', and Joxer ain't Hercules. In fact, even when Hercules is around, so is his friend Iolaus who gets more female attention than Herc does.

* AnyoneCanDie: By the end of the series, the only recurring supporting characters who ''hadn't'' died were [[Creator/BruceCampbell Autolycus]], Salmoneus, Ares, and Aphrodite. Even the other Olympian Gods... The ones confirmed to be killed by Xena and Hercules are [[spoiler:Zeus, Discord, Posiedon, Hades, Hephestus, Artemis, Athena and Deimos. The Furies and even ''[[SlidingScaleOfFreeWillVsFate the Fates]]'' were also killed.]]
