Parodied: Fiction Broadcasting Station airs a profile of "Proud" Alice and her highly successful charitable foundation, the Friends of Orphaned Trope Links.
Zig Zagged: Dale complains about Alice's Awesome Ego for the first book and a half, until she wakes up realizing it was All Just a Dream. Then, the first time she runs into Dale while awake, he tricks her into showing off her lack of skill at Game X in front of an 80,000-strong crowd, but his target wasn't our Alice, but one Alessandra, who often goes by "Alice".
Discussed: "Alice is a lot nicer in person than her lousy reputation implied."
Conversed: "For all this talk of 'Proud' Alice, she was really not written to be that hubristic."
Played For Laughs: The narrator is an Unreliable Narrator and tells us that Alice has a problem but we regularly see the opposite.
Played For Drama: Alice is the Unreliable Narrator and, unsure of her own ability, constantly downplays it. She tells us that her Fatal Flaw (or a list of fatal flaws) are this, but in actuality, the characters can see that the Fatal Flaw is really Alice's self-esteem.
"Good thing you don't require singing skills to return to Informed Flaw, because I'm a TERRIBLE singer! True story, bro!"
