* EasyComeEasyGo: Starla Sexton was a rookie when she won the New Dimension Wrestling Women's Title and lost it back in a day to the previous champion, Malia Hosaka. Mighty Molly did not even hold the Hardcore Championship a day after she won from Hurricane, dropping it to Christian.

* PowerTrio: The Sisters of Mighty with Aja Perera and Solo Darling, starting at Wrestling/{{Chikara}}'s 2018 ''King Of Trios''.

Then seeing Darling and Perera inspired her to put the cape back on one more time...



** Mona had a rather one sided one with Brandi Alexander in WCW, only losing to Alexander once while they were in the promotion. The two met up elsewhere however, such as when they fought over the L.A.W. Television Title belt in Ladies All-Pro Wrestling. Brandi liked Molly to boot, she just had a hard time dealing with losses, which she kept racking up when they met.

* ActionGirl[=/=]DarkActionGirl: Despite being a clean goodie wrestler, her work as Starla Saxton was impressive enough to attract the attention of Randy Savage, who brought her up to WCW and into the villainous Team Madness to train Gorgeous George ([[GorgeousGeorge no not that]], [[Wrestling/GeorgeWagner not that either]]).

* TheBigBad: Subtle, but she became the driving force of the WWE women's division. While Wrestling/EricBischoff ran Raw, Gail Kim had him wrapped around her little finger and Gail took orders from Molly. Notably, Molly took Bischoff to task when Wrestling/{{Lita}} showed up to ruin her plans, with him stammering about not knowing how it happened. Turned out Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin had rehired Lita, him becoming "sheriff" of Raw effectively broke Molly's power and led to her head being shaved. She also ended up getting Lita fired by picking Bischoff as her partner for a match and convincing him to put Lita's career at stake[[note]]Wrestling/MattHardy was Lita's partner and turned heel on her to cost her the match[[/note]]. Wrestling/{{Christian|Cage}} however intervened and got Lita's job back.



* DarkActionGirl: Her 2003 push saw some of her most vicious heel work yet.



* DenserAndWackier: Molly herself wanted to make her heel character funnier - hence segments where she wore a 50s bathing suit in a bikini contest, or being revealed to have granny panties on. This got reversed in 2003 with her character going DarkerAndEdgier.



* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Invoked when she turned heel. She had been blonde before but darkened her hair immediately the next week.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Stopped being a blonde after her WWE heel turn.

%%* GirlishPigtails: As a Holly Cousin.

to:

%%* * GirlishPigtails: As a Holly Cousin.Cousin she always wrestled with her hair in pigtails. If it wasn't completely tied up, she'd have two smaller pigtails at the top. They emphasised her sweet CountryMouse nature.



* IWasQuiteALooker: After her FaceHeelTurn though inverted now.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: [[MinnesotaNice You can't actually imagine. Is quite possibly one of the nicest and friendliest WWE superstars to approach.]]MinnesotaNice: By all accounts is this in real life. But in kayfabe, she was only billed from Minnesota as a heel.



* PowerHair: As the self-righteous prude.

to:

* PowerHair: As the self-righteous prude. She initially had it longer when she first turned, but had to cut it shorter because her hair was damaged from bleaching.



** Arguably, she left at the wrong time, since that and her opposition to drugs/smoking/alcohol (in the ''Divas 2002'' magazine, she claimed her biggest turnoff was "Tobacco and drug use") would have made her a natural fit in Wrestling/CMPunk's Straight Edge Society, except that she probably wouldn't have liked the {{Cult}} implications of the group. (See ReligiousBruiser above.)

* HiddenDepths: Her 2005 shoot interview revealed a '''lot''' that was unknown about her. The most shocking example would be her attitude to the Diva Search. Many fans assumed that she was against it and hated all the models signed by WWE. She stated that she knew it was a part of show business and theorized that they could possibly find a new star that could make the company more money. She also said there were some contestants she was really excited to work with. Considering some of [[Wrestling/{{LayCool}} the women]] [[Wrestling/EveTorres that came out of]] the Diva Search, she may have had a point.

* HumbleHero: Despite being regarded as one of the best female workers of her generation, she said something to the extent of "I just went out there and wrestled for three minutes. Have you seen what the women can do ''now''?" She also responded to being called underrated with "I had two Women's Championships and got to go to ''Wrestling/WrestleMania''. Does that sound like 'underrated' to you?"

* WhenSheSmiles: She used to smile a lot, having a pageant contest gimmick but scowled a lot in an attempt to make herself look uglier after a face heel turn. Still, WWE had her participate in photo shoots and stuff, where she would naturally let it show again.
