Introduced in SSX
- Berserk Button: Intentional thuggery in a competition does NOT sit well with Kaori.
- The Cutie
- Dye Hard: She has a pink streak in her hair in SSX 2012.
- Genki Girl: So much so that she was one of the few characters who wasn't Flanderized for Tricky; she didn't have to be.
- Gratuitous English: She speaks a bit of English in these cutscenes in Tricky, but largely averted in 3; she only speaks English in the character selection screen.
- Action Girl: Her favorite reading? SAS survival training. No, not a required read for what she goes through, her fave.
- Bad Ass: Hell yeah. Ace snowboard, surf and motorcross champion? She grinds a mid air helicopter in her first trick event, check. Action Girl? She enjoys SAS survival training, check. Firey Redhead? She would play Shepard, in a film given half a chance and closely match her awesomeness, check.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her primary form of Fanservice.
- Going Commando: One question during an interview is whether she prefers boxers or briefs. Her reply and love for special forces makes it easy to guess.
- The Hero: In SSX 2012, she leads the team in their quest to go down all nine Deadly Descents.
- Jack of All Stats: And she's close friends with Moby, the other character of this franchise with average stats.
- Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: Zoe's thoughts of her role as founder of SSX: Best. Job. Ever.
- Putting the Band Back Together: Co-founder of SSX and was the one who started the idea in SSX 2012
- Fragile Speedster: He's a naturally speedy guy who's the only one to mainly have the Alpine board type, which plays to speed and acceleration. However, his stability and tricks aren't so good.
- Put on a Bus: He had a similar situation to Jurgen after the original.
