General CPU Tropes
Exotic Eye Designs: All CPUs and CPU Candidates have a power symbol in their eyes when in HDD.
Ship Tease: Many of the official art has her doing this with Noire.
Slap-on-the-Wrist Nuke: The CPU Neptune attack has her transform into a spaceship, fly out into space, and then has the scene zoom out to show the entire landmass you're currently on before firing off a Wave Motion Gun, destroying the entire thing. However there's a disclaimer down on the bottom of the screen:
Lady Swears A Lot: At first, she looks calm and collected... But it won't be even ten minutes into the game that you will find out that she doesn't shy away from spewing swearwords like an angry high school student... especially when angry!
Supporting Leader: Right from the start she points out that it's actually Neptune joining her. She's the one with all the connections and she's the one that figures things out, but she tends to let Neptune and Compa stay in the spotlight. Though the DLC quests for new characters focus quite a bit on her, Neptune and Compa receive a passing mention at best.
Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She never appeared again after mk2, since the real-life Gust Corporation was bought and absorbed into Koei-Tecmo. Her role in Re;Birth1 was written out entirely, and her role in Re;Birth2 was taken by RED of all characters, who had been suffering from this trope since the first game.
Game-Breaking Bug: Her revival skills have been known to not work right and just heal her, considerably lowering her use in battle.
She has, however, been making the rounds as a cameo DLC character in recent Disgaea games. Unlike most characters, though, she doesn't reference her home series in her description - it merely reads that she's an anthropomorphism of NIS.
Brick Joke: Delivers one from Gust and her own at the same time. She eats IF's blanc-manger, and later sends her Blanc's Manju. After joining the team she gives IF a "Kichiku Megane Harlem Set for Virgins" because she notices that IF likes Vert and that Vert has one as well. After a brief moment of disappointment she just passes it off as RED mixing names up again.
Skunk Stripe: Has a couple of these. One by her face, the other at the tip of the R in her hair.
Toilet Humor: In one of her event "Red Alert" RED get chased by a upset Lady White Heart for farting loudly in front of her.
Red:" Phew! I think I lost her... Lady White Heart's good at chasing people! She didn't have to get so upset... I know it was like a grenade explosion, but I'm just a human. Everyone cuts a fart once in a while. Plus, the louder it is, the less smell it has. So they say. Anyway, that one was really sound-barrier shatteringly loud. ...She'll get over it soon."
Affably Evil: He may be a jackass, but he's polite about it, going as far as to turn on the lights when he had Neptune and her party trapped because "total darkness" would be too cruel.
The Chessmaster: During the time you spend in Lastation (read: half of the game), Ganache himself states he's manipulated everything from the start up the the current point, from the moment he heard of the Console War.
The Dragon: Of a manner, he could easily be seen as filling this role to Lady Black Heart, if one was to consider her a villain.
Corrupt Church: Is the leader of it and it doesn't begin to describe him.
To put things in perspective, he tried to get IF to poison Neptune, went ahead and did it himself, then arrested all three girls as "criminals". Jade later goes into more detail about Yvoire, going on about how he destroyed any documents pertaining to the purge of the Guild, refusing to acknowledge the atrocities committed.
Jerkass: Remember Ganache? Yvoire is a friggin' competitor for his title at this.
Leave Your Quest Test: Gives IF an offer to become a Leanbox citizen, so she can worship Lady Green Heart freely.
