* SleazyPolitician: Both of the tribunes.

* SleazyPolitician: Both of the tribunes.tribunes, who, despite claiming to stand for the people, stand for themselves, and manipulate the people for their own gain. Subverted with Menenius, who despite being a snarky man who is absolutely scathing toward those he does not respect, is a good man who truly wants what is best for rome.

** On the other hand, Coriolanus [[DoNotTauntCthulhu gets utterly owned]] whenever he tries to go up against the public, once with his own people and again [[DeathByMocking (fatally)]] with the Volsces. This seems to say that while the public might be fickle, gullible, and naive, a good leader ''has'' to win them over regardless, and fail to do so [[TooDumbToLive at their own peril]].

* {{Badass}}: ''Coriolanus''. This guy charges alone into an enemy city and emerges alive and victorious. Also, given his rank, an example of a FourStarBadass.

Added DiffLines:

* BloodIsTheNewBlack: In the 2013 Donmar adaptation, Martius is ''covered'' in blood after the battle at Corioli.


Added DiffLines:

***In addition, the production leaves out a scene in which the Volsces decide that Martius has to die, which turns his death from a state-sanctioned assassination into a ''crime of passion'' carried out by Aufidius and his men in the immediate wake of Martius' betrayal.
