'''Basic Trope''': {{Immortality}} is portrayed as a bad thing which often causes much angst.
* '''Straight''': Alice becomes immortal, and is depressed and angsts about it.
* '''Exaggerated''': Alice becomes immortal, and the depression drives her insane as she suffers through endless amounts of punishment because of it.
* '''Downplayed''':
** Alice becomes immortal and realizes that there may be downsides like seeing her family die, but realizes that it is a gift and only rarely succumbs to angst about it.
** Alice does not become immortal, but merely has her [[LongLived lifespan greatly extended beyond what it would normally be]]. This still causes her to angst in accordance with this trope.
* '''Justified''':
** Alice's immortality only prevents her from death, not pain and injury, and the large amount of injuries she suffers causes her much trouble.
** Alice runs out of things to do to occupy her time with,and life becomes tedious
** As an immortal being, Steve will eventually see all of her friends wither away and die. In worst case scenario, even her children if she has any.
** It turns out this setting has an awesome afterlife (or Alice at least believes this to be the case), but now it's impossible for Alice to ever go there since she can't die.
* '''Inverted''': LivingForeverIsAwesome.
* '''Subverted''': Alice becomes immortal, and initially panics and angsts, but soon gets over it and learns to love her newfound immortality.
* '''Double Subverted''': ...Until tragic things start happening and she starts seeing her immortality as a horrid curse once more.
* '''Parodied''': Alice hates being immortal... but for ridiculously trivial and petty reasons, most of which have nothing to do with immortality at all, rather than the weighty, epic reasons you'd expect.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Alice's opinions on her immortality swing wildly between the sides of the spectrum during different times in the plot.
* '''Averted''': LivingForeverIsNoBigDeal.
* '''Enforced''': The show wants to draw in teenage viewers via adding in angst, and the most convenient possible source happens to be Alice and her immortality.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Being immortal kinda sucks for you, doesn't it?"
* '''Invoked''':
** Alice becomes immortal, knows bad things will probably happen because of it, and starts her angsting in advance.
** Alice either hasn't lived long enough to have an opinion either way or she thinks LivingForeverIsAwesome until a villain forcibly invokes AndIMustScream on her.
* '''Exploited''': Alice is promised death as part of a deal she would never take for any sort of conventional reward.
* '''Defied''': Alice becomes immortal and actively resists angsting over it because she knows it won't help anything.
* '''Discussed''': "Why is it that nobody who becomes immortal likes it? Certainly it couldn't suck for ''everyone'', right?"
* '''Conversed''': Alice is scared of death, and mutters about how ungrateful fictional characters are when they become immortal.
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Alice prevents the heat death of the universe by remaining as the only source of power and mass. It isn't comfortable, but at least she was able to preserve a small piece of the universe.
** By the time the heat death kicks in, Alice is [[StrongerWithAge godlike enough]] to press "RESET" on the Universe.
--> "[[Creator/IsaacAsimov The consciousness of Alice encompassed all of what had once been a Universe and brooded over what was now Chaos. Step by step, it must be done. And Alice said, Let there be light, and there was light.]]"
