Added DiffLines:

* InvincibleHero: Xena, while supposedly a regular mortal (questions about her true father aside), is pretty much unbeatable. She has defeated entire armies on her own along with war gods, archangels, and demons in direct battle despite their vastly superior strength. Any time she meets an enemy she cannot directly defeat she either acquires [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands new powers, skills, or weapons]] that allow her to triumph or her enemies [[ForgotAboutHisPowers conveniently forget about the powers]] that would let them easily defeat a mortal.

Added DiffLines:

* FaceHeelTurn: The Archangel Michael goes from devout servant of righteousness and protector of souls to a cackling villain who sets Eve up to die to martyr her. The same might be said for the God of Love because Michael was working with said beings full knowledge if not orders.


Added DiffLines:

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: The gods forget about pretty much all of their powers during the Twilight arc to make it possible for Xena to kill them. This includes their invisibility (particularly able to effect things while invisible), scrying from a distance. projectiles from a safe distance, plagues, summoning of armies of monsters, telekinesis, and general reality warping. The only one they remember are fireballs.


Added DiffLines:

* WorlfEffect: A number of supernatural characters become this to make Xena look good.
** Pretty much all of the Olympians during the Twilight arc to make it possible for Xena to kill them.
** The Archangel Michael started out more powerful than most gods and able to defeat Hercules with ease. When he shows up on Xena, he gets progressively weaker till he is no different from any other enemy she has faced.

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: In the last two seasons, virtually anything Xena does to protect Eve is considered just and anyone that anyway puts Eve in jeopardy is deserves death. This includes people questioning whether one child is worth that of many others, people demanding justice for Eve's crimes against them, or normally benevolent (Athena) gods fighting for their own loved ones. Xena only gets called out on it when she nearly unleashes hell on Earth, corrupts and archangel and tries to murder the Archangel Michael. Even then any criticisms are casually brushed aside.

** The irony is the Olympians are portrayed as villains for wanting to murder Eve based on a prophecy and who her father is, an outsider god who wants to do away with them and take over the civilization they built. Yet Xena tried to murder Gabriel's daughter Hope on nothing more than a prophecy and who her father was.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenPedestal: In "The Execution", Gabrielle is devastated by [[spoiler: Maleager's confession that he really did kill someone.]] Invoked by Xena:
-->'''Xena:''' You put people on a pedestal, and sooner or later they're going to fall, and your expectations fall with them.

* [[spoiler:DownerEnding]]

to:

* [[spoiler:DownerEnding]][[spoiler:DownerEnding]]: [[spoiler:Xena By the end of the season virtually every major supporting character has suffered a violent death, Hercules was forced to kill his own father, the nonhuman races like Centaurs are doomed to extinction, the Amazons are doomed setting back women's rights, the ancient pantheons will eventually fade away into nothing with only a few gods surviving with their replacement being better is questionable at best, Ares is one of the few gods left and free to manipulate humanity with no one really around to stop him, and to top it all off is is unknown if Xena ever got the redemption and peace she wanted leaving her dead and Gabrielle is left wondering the world with all those she loved dead.]]

** It even happens in-universe, as just a year after the aforementioned siege of Troy, Xena helps Odyssius get home, with reference even being made to how he's been trying to get there for ten years.

Added DiffLines:

* KickChick: [[AvertedTrope Completely averted.]] Xena can definitely kick, but she is equally competent at throwing punches and swordfighting, and doesn't show any particular preference for kicks. Gabrielle prefers to use a staff when it comes to a fight.
