Jason. A well-reasoned one, given that not only he has dumped the woman who sacrificed everything for him and whom without he wouldn't even succeed in his mission, but also it makes uncertain the future of their sons.
* WomanScorned: And how. She's probably along with [[UsefulNotes/ClassicalMythology Hera]] the UrExample.

{{Yandere}}: Medea, according to modern interpretations, and therefore, [[UrExample the original]].
%%* YourCheatingHeart
original]]. Boys, is she NotGoodWithRejection.
* YourCheatingHeart: All the madness starts with Jason's ill-fated idea of marrying Corinthian princess Glauce and keeping his MagicalGirlfriend Medea and the mother of his children as a mere .[[TheMistress concubine]].

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.

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