  • Back from the Dead: She was killed by Sylar. However, when Hiro Nakamura traveled back in time and changed her fate, Charlie was healed by Sylar and fell in love with Hiro. Samuel Sullivan then had her abducted and left her in 1944.
  • Dead Star Walking: When she returned in Season 4, Jayma Mays had been cast as a regular in Glee. This pretty much guaranteed that she and Hiro would have no future.
  • Diabolus ex Machina: If she wasn't killed by Sylar, she would have died of a brain clot. Originally, at least.

  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: Hiro even compares her to Gwen.
  • Kill the Cutie
  • Love Interest: To Hero.
  • Nice Girl: One of most lovely and adorable character in the series.
  • Photographic Memory: Charlie has the ability to remember and recall vast amounts of information. She is easily able to retain and recall what she reads. She learned minutiae, languages, and complex information quickly without the need for repetition.
  • Service Sector Stereotypes: Charlie is a subversion of the diner waiter. She is charming and friendly, not to mention serving as Hiro Nakamura's first love interest... and she has a perfect memory.
  • Shaggy Dog Story: Hiro witnesses her die brutally, so he goes back in time six months to prevent the whole thing. Several months take place as the two of them fall in love. When Hiro tries to tell her that she will die, she tells him that she has a blood clot in her brain and will die shortly anyway. Oops. Waste of six good months.
    • In the last season, Hiro travel back in time and change her fate; Charlie was healed by Sylar and fell in love with Hiro. Samuel Sullivan then had her abducted and left her in 1944. When Hiro finally meet her, she's old and asks Hiro not to go back in time, because she's built a family during 65 years and doesn't want to lose that. Doubleyoo. Tee. Eff.

  • The Obi-Wan
  • Put on a Bus: After Noah and the Haitian attack him and Peter, he turns invisible and runs out of Peter's apartment and he hasn't been seen on screen since.
    • He appeared in a lot of Graphic Novels and they've subtly alluded to him a few times onscreen, so his fans are pretty sure that the writers are bringing him back. Not happen.
  • Seen It All: He has alluded to a hobby of randomly following people around, so he's seen a lot.
  • Trickster Mentor
  • Zen Survivor: His training of Peter is brief, brutal, but very helpful (though he gets some things wrong), and he definitely fits the backstory requirements.

  • Siblings in Crime: She and Flint robbed various stores before being captured by the Company.
