MostWritersAreMale, and what male cannot understand the hardship and dangers of dealing with a jealous and angry ex-girlfriend? What makes {{Euripides}}' play so interesting is that the protagonist is not TheHero but the PsychoExGirlfriend--and she's {{justified|Trope}}.

Added DiffLines:

* CruelMercy: At one point, Jason begs her to kill him and she refuses, letting him live to suffer the pain for the rest of his life.


Added DiffLines:

* KilledOffScreen: Most of the deaths though Medea's children are notable in that you can hear them [[ScreamDiscretionShot screaming and begging offstage]]


Added DiffLines:

* {{Pride}}: Jason full stop. He's extremely condescending the whole play, talking down to Medea and dismissing her feelings and arguments because she's a barbarian and a woman.


Added DiffLines:

** Creon, whose EstablishingCharacterMoment involves him gloating about sending Medea into exile.

And yes, ''FateStayNight'' fans. THIS is the real origin story of [[spoiler:Caster]].

* GoryDiscretionShotGoryDiscretionShot: None of the ancient versions of the play have Medea kill her children on stage, instead the details are given via the GreekChorus.

WhatAnIdiot! Jason has created the original WomanScorned, and for the GreekChorus, it's only a question of whom she intends to kill--herself, or Jason. Neither. Medea [[MurderTheHypotenuse kills the new girl]] and Glauce's father (King Creon, not be confused with Creon of the Thebes tetralogy), who arranged the marriage, but decides simply killing Jason would be too good for him. A conversation with the as-yet-childless Aegeus teaches her the cruelest, most painful, most unbearable punishment to inflict on a man--the death of his children. She takes their two children off-stage and kills them... but she struggles with it a bit first.
