* HeManWomanHater: Hippolytus, as proved by his somewhat hysterical speech to Phaedra and the Nurse about the evils of women, including the gem that men should pay for babies at temples and thus eliminate the need for women after all. [[FridgeLogic But who would then bring up those babies, hmm?]]

* Jerkass: Hippolytus. For many readers, it's terribly difficult to muster up any sympathy for him during the first half of the play.

Averted in that [[spoiler: she doesn't show up in time to fix anything; she only succeeds in making Theseus realize what a terrible mistake he'd made.]]



* FatalFlaw: Hippolytus has plenty of other flaws, but the one which drives the tragedy is his refusal to worship Aphrodite.

* FatalFlaw: Hippolytus has plenty of other flaws, but the one which drives the tragedy is his refusal to worship Aphrodite. He believes that he can choose which gods he'll associate with in the same way that he can choose which people he associates with; Aphrodite begs to differ.
