[[folder:E-102 Gamma]]

-->''"Doctor Robotnik... Enemy. Master Registration... Deleted. E-Series... Friends. Must save..."''

-> '''Debut''': ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''
!!!!!!Voiced by Creator/JojiNakata (Japanese, games), Naoki Imamura (Japanese, ''SonicX''), Steve Broadie (English, 1998), Creator/JonStJohn (English, 2004), Creator/AndrewRannells (English, ''SonicX'')

An intelligent creation of Dr. Robotnik's who is convinced by Amy to rebel against his creator thanks to the memories of the bird trapped inside, and who goes on to liberate those trapped in the other E-Series robots.

* AIIsACrapshoot: Inverted; he was intended to be a KillerRobot, but ended up turning good.
* AntiVillain: Started out as a NobleDemon before his HeelFaceTurn.
* ArmCannon
* CameBackWrong: Eggman rebuilt Gamma to be more loyal to him in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle''. He pulls another HeelFaceTurn after Cream reasons with him.
* CaptainObvious: After being told to head to a (for him) unassuming destination, he stumbles upon his older brother being modified in a manner that is implied to be painful. His response upon slowly walking out and shutting the door behind him?
--> "This is the wrong room."
* DeathEqualsRedemption: [[spoiler:Though, he never did anything ''truly'' evil while working for Eggman, he still decided to make everything right by destroying/freeing his brothers, before his final death. Of course, this overlaps with HeroicSacrifice.
* DuelToTheDeath: He had one with Sonic, until Amy intervened. The winner of the battle is unclear, however. Later he has one with an upgraded E-101 Beta. [[spoiler:[[MutualKill Neither of them survive.]]]]
* GreenEyes
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Self destructs at the end of ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', to free the last trapped bird. Many fans think that Beta Mk. II's final attack simply [[TakingYouWithMe proved fatal]] (with enough of a delay for Gamma to look at the released Flicky meaningfully), but given that he listed himself on the list of remaining E-Series units (read: targets), he probably would have done this even if he had survived the fight.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Gamma:''' Units remaining... ''(gazes at hand)'' ...Gamma...]]
* JapanesePronouns: "Watashi", but before his 'death', he used "Boku".
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:There were [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 a]] [[VideoGame/SonicBattle couple]] of half-hearted attempts to revive Gamma in spinoffs, but these stopped once Omega was introduced.]]
* MachineMonotone: Speaks in a deep, perpetually mellow voice. In both versions of ''SonicX'', he talks in RoboSpeak instead.
-->'''Gamma:''' This presents a problem...
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Ultimately turns out to be one after gaining self awareness.
* MutualKill: [[spoiler:With Beta.]]
* NobleDemon: For most of the early half of his story, due to his limited sentience and over-logical programming, his "evil-doing" is never personal.
* PowerFloats: He can hover above the ground, and also [[{{Flight}} fly]] with the help of a built-in HelicopterPack.
* SamusIsAGirl: [[spoiler:He is actually a female bird. This is what prevents Amy from being a victim of the SmurfettePrinciple.]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: He's the only one of the E-series robots who is neither blindly loyal to Dr. Eggman nor a RoboticPsychopath, thanks to two things: Amy showing kindness to him and his seeing Beta get heavily modified.
* WeHardlyKnewYe

[[folder:Maria Robotnik]]

-->''"Give them a chance, to be happy!"''

->'''Debut''': ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''

!!!!!!Voiced by Yuri Shiratori (Japanese), Moriah Angeline (English, 2001), Rebecca Honig (English, 2005)

Granddaughter of Gerald Robotnik and cousin of Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, she was a terminally-ill patient on the Space Colony ARK and close friend of Shadow.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: In ''Sonic Adventure 2''.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* IllGirl
* InfantImmortality; Averted. Even though she looked older than she was, she died at the ripe old age of ''twelve''.
* KilledOffForReal: Offscreen in ''Sonic Adventure 2'', but not in ''Shadow the Hedgehog'', where [=GUN=] agents shoot her.
* KillTheCutie
* PosthumousCharacter
* TokenHeroicOrc
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth
* TrueBlueFemininity
* [[UglyGuysHotDaughter Ugly Guy's Hot Granddaughter]]: She doesn't look anything like her grandfather Gerald, her cousin Eggman, or her cousin's descendant, Eggman Nega.
* WhiteSheep
* YoungerThanTheyLook: You wouldn't tell by looking at her, but she was only twelve.

[[folder:Shade the Echidna]]

-->''"Please, I wish for a chance to prove myself, my new friend."''

->'''Debut''': ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles: The Dark Brotherhood''

Introduced in ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'' as the commander of a mysterious group of warriors called the Marauders. Turns out the "Marauders" are actually a long-lost echidna clan called the Nocturnus. Shade wants to help the Nocturnus return to their homeworld, but when her boss explains that he intends to ''conquer'' the world, she objects and joins Sonic's side.

* ActionGirl
* {{Anti Villain}}ess: [[spoiler:At first...]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: She stands out as the toughest warrior of the Nocturnus Clan.
* TheAtoner: One half of the reason for her HeelFaceTurn--see below for the other.
* {{Badass}}: Though it happens offscreen, she managed to beat ''Knuckles'' in a straight up fight. Though it helped that he was tired out fighting the other Nocturnus.
* BadassAdorable: When not wearing her helmet.
* CanonForeigner
* CoolHelmet
* DarkActionGirl
* EasilyForgiven: Arguable example; she is made a trusted ally rather quickly, Knuckles even scolds you if you don't follow this trope with the branched dialogue options.
* {{Expy}}: Julie-Su: A member of a lost tribe of Echidnas known as the Dark Legion from the Archie Comics shares a lot of similarities with Shade. And the entire Nocturnus share similarities with the Dark Legion from the same comics. The most obvious example, in the comics the Dark Legion was sealed away in the Twilight Zone, while the Nocturnus were sealed away in the Twilight ''Cage''. Both were alternate dimensions that seem like pretty terrible places to be. WordOfGod says this is intentional.
* GirlOfTheWeek: She is suggested to be this to Knuckles by other characters, given they are the [[OnlyYouCanRepopulateMyRace opposite sex]] and the [[LastOfHisKind last of their kind]](ish).
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: She takes her helmet off earlier on in the game for TheReveal, but when she swaps sides she ditches it for good
* KnightTemplar: She sincerely wants to help her people escape the Twilight Cage and to that end she follows Ix's orders completely, even if it means hurting others. Subverted however when he reveals his true intentions for Earth.
* LaserBlade: Her Leech Blades.
* NotWhatISignedOnFor: She wished to return her clan to the outside world. When Ix let slip his plans to ''conquer'' said world, she turned against him.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Found out in a conversation branch in the start of Chapter 6 that she's really 4000 years old. Due to the YearInsideHourOutside physics of the Twilight Cage, however, she is likely not much older than the others physically.
* TheStoic: Somewhat; she's friendly enough with her comrades, but not exactly emotive.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Her Warp Belt, which allows her to temporary leave the Twilight Cage and teleport from place to place.
* ThereIsAnother
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: During her Echinda Rush move with Knuckles.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Ix. [[BrokenPedestal Until he reveals his true intentions for Earth.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She merely wants her people to return to Earth, though she abides by Ix's rather ruthless measures for doing so, going through with his invasion plans and brutal attempted execution of Sonic and Knuckles directly before he reveals his not-so well intentioned after-plans.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: If one subscribes to the hypothetical placement of the game as right before the "untold adventure" briefly shown directly at the beginning of ''Unleashed'', her absence in the series is virtually the only loose end.
* WomanInBlack


->'''Debut''': ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''

A water being that acts as guardian of the Chao. Went on a rampage when the Chao were attacked and was sealed inside the Master Emerald. Robotnik eventually set him free, but Sonic was able to purify him. Was the BiggerBad of ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', and makes occasional other cameos.

* AllThereInTheManual: [[WordOfGod Sonic Channel]] says he's a Chao mutated by Chaos Energy. Most likely a neutral Chaos Chao, as they resemble a RidiculouslyCuteCritter version of his base form.
* ArtEvolution: Perfect Chaos gets a radical [[http://static4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111109080406/sonic/images/9/9b/Perfect-chaos.jpg redesign]] in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations''.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: All of its forms share one singular weakness: Its exposed brain, the only part of his body tangible enough to attack.
* [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Attack of the Fifty Foot Water Monster]]: Perfect Chaos is huge.
* BerserkButton: Don't threaten the Chao. '''Ever'''. Just don't. You've been warned.
* BewareMyStingerTail: Chaos 6
* BewareTheQuietOnes: Chaos never speaks and is perfectly content to be left alone... until you harm the Chao. At which point the only thing you can do is get your affairs in order.
* BlobMonster: Made of water.
* BreathWeapon: Perfect Chaos can fire beams of energy from its mouth.
* ChaosIsEvil: Presented as this at first in ''Adventure'', but stops being hostile after his final defeat.
* CombatTentacles: Chaos 6 and Perfect Chaos.
* DemotedToExtra: He has no real role in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle'''s plot; his appearance is just for the sake of having Emerl copy skills from him.
* DisproportionateRetribution: The Echidnas killing his fellow Chao, as well as trying to steal the Chaos Emeralds, made him so enraged that he not only outright killed the Echidnas (offscreen), he also tried to ''destroy the entire planet.''
* DoingInTheWizard: The games seem to portray him as an actual deity that the Echidnas worshipped, even though Sonic Channel confirmed he is just a mutated Chao.
* TheDragon: To Eggman in Sonic Adventure. Elevates to DragonInChief after Eggman loses his grip on Chaos' reins and Perfect Chaos is realized.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: He was in league with Eggman the whole time just to get a hold of the Chaos Emeralds and when Eggman fails too many times, he decides to go it alone.
* EldritchAbomination: His true form. It looks almost exactly like [[Film/GodzillaVsBiollante Biollante]] but fewer tentacles, and being made of water instead of plant-materia.
** Chaos is supposedly a Chao that was mutated eons ago. If that is the case, it has always been an EldritchAbomination.
* FlatCharacter: Barring his vengeance-driven motives, Chaos is surprisingly nondescript in personality for what was a major character in ''Adventure'', not helped by his [[TheStoic lack of expressiveness]] and [[TheSpeechless voicelessness.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: At first he was just a mutated Chao living in peace with Tikal and the other Chao... Then the echinda clan tried to take the Chaos Emeralds for themselves, killing many Chao in the process. That resulted in Chaos ''earning'' his title.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In ''SonicX'' his eyes glow green.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He's pretty peaceful and friendly towards Tikal and the Chao. But if anyone harms them, he won't hesitate to kill.
* GreenEyes
* HellishPupils: Perfect Chaos has reptilian eyes that would make [[SoulEater Medusa]] cringe.
* ImmuneToBullets; Justified as his body is made out of water, so bullets will just go right through him.
* {{Kaiju}}: As Perfect Chaos, even as a ShoutOut to famous Kaiju Biollante.
* KillItWithIce: Chaos 6 must be frozen before being attacked.
* KnightOfCerebus: He was the first significant Sonic antagonist to have ''no'' humorous quirks or traits whatsoever, and the threat he brought is far greater and darker than anything previously seen in a Sonic game.
* MadGod: In ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''. Of course, the "mad" in this case refers more to unquelled rage than actual insanity.
* MakingASplash
* MightyGlacier: Especially in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle''. Next to Emerl, he's the strongest character in the game. But he moves like a dinosaur.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Perfect Chaos has a lot of teeth.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Especially Perfect Chaos.
* OneWingedAngel: Has ''seven'' of these, each one stronger than the last, the transformations for which occur every time he absorbs a Chaos Emerald.
* PapaWolf: To the Chao, especially in his ''ComicBook/SonicX'' incarnation.
* PhysicalGod: Known as the God of Destruction.
* SealedEvilInACan: He was sealed in the Master Emerald by Tikal for thousands of years due to him going berserk, only to be freed by Dr. Eggman when he shatters the Master Emerald. It should be noted however that he isn't actually evil--just angry and vengeful.
* ShapeShifter: By virtue of his water-based form.
* ShoutOut: Perfect Chaos to Biollante, as noted above, his redesign in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' further adds to this.
* SomeKindOfForceField: Chaos 2 can project a barrier during its boss fight. Sonic X gave Perfect Chaos this ablility.
* TheSpeechless: Though he never talks, he is able to communicate with Tikal through ripples in the water.
* TheStarscream
* TheUnfought: Chaos 1.
* TheUnseen: Chaos 3 and 5, due to him absorbing two emeralds at once.
* UnstoppableRage: Extra emphasis on rage. Harming the Chao will cause his wrath to become genocidal.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: His turn into an antagonist was triggered by a power-hungry tribe of Echidnas trying to steal the Chaos Emeralds, and killing several Chao via trampling in the process. While his desire was to avenge the Chao, his anger quickly went out of control to where he wanted the entire world to feel his anger and sadness.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: He was a Chao that was corrupted by chaos energy trying to protect the other Chao.

A group of extreme gear riding birds from the ''Sonic Riders'' series of games. Each member functions as TheRival to a member of "Team Sonic". The Bablylon rogues are descended by the ancient Babylonian civilization. Consists of [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_jet_7297.gif Jet the Hawk]], who is obsessed with being the best at extreme gear riding; [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fig_wave_3737.gif Wave the Swallow]], a WrenchWench that maintains their extreme gears; and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_storm_8491.gif Storm the Albatross]], who acts as the DumbMuscle.

* AbsenteeActor: Jet's the only one who appeared outside the rivals series.
* AntiHeroTeam
* [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant Extreme Gear Guy]]: Jet.
* BareYourMidriff: Wave.
* BigThinShortTrio: Storm is the big, Wave is the thin, and Jet is the short.
* BirdPeople: All three are humanoid birds.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: Sorta. For a while, it was believed that Storm had black sclera due to [[http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090614012228/sonic/images/1/1a/Storm_The_Albatross_1.png his artwork]] [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090614012529/sonic/images/7/7d/Storm_the_Albatross_3.png from the first game]] clearly depicting him with such. Turns out, the "sclera" are markings around his normal blue eyes.
* BlowYouAway: Jet can use his PaperFanOfDoom to stir up wind currents to disorient other riders.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: Granted, Storm's tough guy image fades rather quickly under the right circumstances. He acts flustered around girls and is shown to feel bad whenever he hurts someone he wasn't aiming for.
* TheBrute: Storm.
* [[TheBully The Bullies]]: All of them count to a certain degree, but Wave especially counts considering how she initially treats Tails.
* CastHerd: Like the Chaotix, they are rarely seen apart.
* TheDarkChick: Wave.
* DontYouDarePityMe: Jet hates being pitied.
* DumbMuscle: Storm, again.
* DualWielding: Jet's [[PaperFanOfDoom Paper Fans Of Doom]] when fully powered up.
* EnfantTerrible: Jet is only 14 years old, making him a year younger than Sonic, and the youngest member of his team.
* FatBastard: Storm.
* {{Feathered Fiend}}s
* FreudianTrio
** Id: Storm.
** Superego: Wave.
** Ego: (with Id traits) Jet.
* GadgeteerGenius: Wave.
* GravityMaster: Jet's gravity control in ''Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity'' thanks to the Ark of the Cosmos.
* {{Greed}}: All of them, but Jet tends to stand out. He even snaps at Wave for interrupting a daydream he was having about money.
* HairTriggerTemper: Jet.
** Wave shares both her Japanese and current English voice actresses with [[{{Naruto}} Sakura]].
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Implied with Wave in "Sonic Riders." In the story mode for the Babylon Rogues, while she insults Tails' hover board, she actually thinks (in her mind) that it wasn't so bad (also, in her bio, it states that she usually doesn't like admitting that someone has talent).
* InformedAbility: Whether or not the Rogues can fly without their extreme Gear is... unclear.
* InsufferableGenius: Wave.
* ItsAllAboutMe: All of them, but especially Jet.
* JapanesePronouns "Ore" and "Oresama" for Jet, "Atashi" for Wave and "Ora" for Storm.
* {{Jerkass}}es: Jet and Wave are not pleasant at all. In fact, they're the only ones of the current Anthro-cast to not have any redeeming qualities. Storm is slightly more sympathetic however, if only he's more of a blind follower.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: But as the final act of ''Zero Gravity'' shows, all of them are capable of doing the right thing when properly motivated.
* TheLeader: Jet is Type III.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: According to her profile on Sonic Channel, Wave views Jet as an "unreliable younger brother", but respects his role as leader.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Wave's yelling attack in the first Sonic Riders.
* MightyGlacier: Storm.
* MotorMouth: Wave
* MovesetClone: Each Rogue has the exact same stats as their Sonic trio counterpart.
* [[MrFixit Ms Fixit]]: Wave does all of the maintenance of the Extreme Gear.
* [[MulticoloredHair Multicolored Feathers]]
* TheNapoleon: Jet.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: As of Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, they found out they were humanoid bird genies ''from space''.
* NoblewomansLaugh: Take a good look at Wave's victory animation when you finish a race on a standard board in ''Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity''.
* {{Nominal Hero}}es: For a given value of "hero". In fact, they're only on this page because they are not outright evil and have had beef with Eggman as well.
* OnlySaneWoman: Wave is this in the group, since she's the one who constantly reminds Jet and Storm of their responsibilities.
* PaperFanOfDoom: Jet uses these to attack other riders.
* PowerCrutch: Jet can only be considered Sonic's rival because of Extreme Gear. Without it, he's probably nowhere near as fast.
* ThePsychoRangers: They are counterparts to the [[Characters/SonicTheHedgehogMainTrio Main Trio]]; they have even more parallels to them than Team Dark.
* QuirkyMiniBossSquad
* TheRival: Jet to Sonic, Wave to Tails, and Storm to Knuckles. Jet definitely takes it the farthest, though.
* RivalsTeamUp: With Sonic.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: A common victim.
* {{The Smart G|uy}}irl: Wave.
* SatelliteCharacter: Wave and Storm to Jet
* ShrinkingViolet: Storm gets very nervous around most girls.
* SmallNameBigEgo: All of them, especially Jet and Wave.
* SmugSnake: Jet (and to some extent the other Rogues) in their more antagonistic bouts, are very overconfident jerks, despite their occasionally blundering nature.
* SpeechImpediment: Storm s-stutters when he's f-f-flustered.
* SuperStrength: Storm in spades, capable of punching out cars and trains along the track, and stunning other riders with a clap of his hands.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Wave has this perception sometimes. It doesn't help that in her official bio, she strongly hates stupid or thick-headed people, which explains her inhospitable attitude towards Storm.
* TeamDad: Wave, much to Jet's chagrin.
* TeenGenius: Wave.
* TerribleTrio: [[spoiler:At first.]]
* ThreeAmigos
* [[FiveBadBand Three Bad Band]]: An interesting take on this, at least on Wave's part considering she qualifies for three of the five positions.
** BigBad: Jet
** TheDragon[=/=]TheEvilGenius[=/=]TheDarkChick: Wave
** TheBrute: Storm
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: Wave can toss sticks of dynamite at other riders.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl
* VerbalTic: Storm's "-waina" in the Japanese version.
* VocalEvolution: Jason Griffith's Jet in ''Zero Gravity'' is a lot deeper than in the first game.
* WingsDoNothing: Despite being birds, they don't even ''have'' wings.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Wave and Storm argue quite a lot. Jet acts seemingly like this towards the former two.
* WrenchWench: Wave (she even uses [[ImprobableWeaponUser a giant wrench]] to attack).

--> '''Debut''': ''[[SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Black Knight]]''

!!!!!!Voiced by Mamiko Noto (Japanese), Melissa Hutchison (English)

A young sorceress from the world of ancient Camelot. She summons Sonic to her world to help stop King Arthur from terrorizing her kingdom.

* {{Anti Villain}}ess: Pretty much the main thing that seperates her from the other Sonic villains is that she is driven by purely altruistic motives. Merlina wants to make her world never end, by making it never change, so it won't end in warfare.
* BatmanGambit: Her plan was to trick Sonic into defeating King Arthur so she could take the scabbard of Excalibur and use its immortality granting powers to make the kingdom everlasting.
* BigBad: Of ''Sonic and the Black Knight''.
* BigBadFriend: Merlina seems to be Sonic's ally early on, [[spoiler:but is using him for her own means.]]
* CastingAShadow: [[spoiler:As the Dark Queen.]]
* TheChessmaster: Masterminded the plot of ''Sonic and the Black Knight''.
* CompleteImmortality: [[spoiler:She uses the Scabbard of Excalibur to grant this to her kingdom.]]
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:This is the ''nicest'' way you can describe her first fight with Sonic. No matter how hard he tries, he can't land a hit on her thanks to her barrier. Then she snaps Caliburn in half and basically beats the everloving snot out of him. If Sonic had not gotten his HeroicSecondWind, she would've killed him.]]
* DarkActionGirl: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]]: she's an antagonist and the FinalBoss, but is an {{Anti Villain}}ess.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Sonic manages to make her do a HeelFaceTurn by telling her to live each day to the fullest and cherish the time she and her kingdom have left.
* DualWielding: [[spoiler:Uses twin swords and twin [[MagicStaff Magic Staffs]] as the Dark Queen.]]
* EnergyBall: [[spoiler:Ultilizes these in her fight with Sonic.]]
* EvilAlbino: [[spoiler:Her skin turns pale as the Dark Queen.]]
* EvilBrit: Define evil.
* EvilRedhead: [[spoiler:Again, she's not evil.]]
* EvilSorceror
* ExpositionFairy: For the beginning of the game, until Caliburn takes over.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: [[spoiler:Has a red eye on her chest as the Dark Queen.]]
* FemalesAreMoreInnocent: [[spoiler:One of two female villains in a Sonic game that is the BigBad of her game, and is an {{Anti Villain}}ess WellIntentionedExtremist. Compare her to the other male villains on this page.]]
* FinalBoss
* FinalBossNewDimension: [[spoiler:The fight with her takes place in a black void, much like the battle with Alf-Layla-Wa-Layla in ''Sonic and the Secret Rings''.]]
* FusionDance: [[spoiler:Can do this with her shadow as the Dark Queen.]]
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: [[spoiler:As the Dark Queen.]]
* ImageSong[=/=][[spoiler:VillainSong]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ua2XQlUTtTM With Me]]

* MagicStaff
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: [[spoiler:Her shadow can grow multiple arms to attack enemies.]]
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:See FusionDance.]]
* SomeKindOfForceField: [[spoiler:Uses one to defend against Sonic during her boss fight and in the fight before that.]]
* TheStoic: Always maintains a calm demeanor. Justified in that, in her view, [[spoiler:she's doing what needs to be done to save her kingdom.]] Her emotional investment in this isn't much.
* StrawNihilist: "Why do flowers bloom knowing they are destined to wither?"
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: [[spoiler:As the Dark Queen.]]
* TurnsRed: [[spoiler:More like turns black. As her health dwindles, her color scheme turns from blue to black.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: The fact that she's [[spoiler:the BigBad.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Merlina wants to save her world... by stopping it from ever changing.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: [[spoiler:Her hair turns purple when she becomes the Dark Queen.]]
