Tropes associated with Emma:

  • Adorkable: Oh dear lord yes. More so on NXT then on Raw or Smackdown.
  • Almost Kiss: With Santino Marella until Fandango kicked him in the head.
  • Arch-Enemy: Summer Rae hates her.
  • Ascended Meme: A fan with a bubble gun blew bubbles at Emma during one of her entrances. Fast forward a few weeks and she's now using a bubble gun of her own, bubbles are incorporated into her entrance and animations of them even appear in her entrance video.
  • Catch Phrase: Oh boy...
    • Emmalution
    • Emmatainment
    • Emmalicious
    • Empressive
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander
  • Cool Teacher: And another pupil of the technical wizard lands on the WWE's active roster.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Outside of the ring, she's apparently been responsible for accidentally injuring Santino Marella, but he still loves her.
  • Dance Battler: The girl spends half of her in-ring time doing the Emma Dance.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Eh, she comes from a sort of arid land and is in a business that encourages tanning.
  • Determinator: Dislocated a shoulder during a ring drill and popped it back in a few minutes later.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Not Emma herself, but after being paired with Santino she wound up incorporating his Cobra into her arsenal, complete with a bright pink Cobra-esque puppet named Ven-Emma.
  • The Ditz
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Subverted, as announcers would specifically call attention to her Once an Episode appearances on main programming and say she was from NXT; therefore viewers with any sort of knowledge of how things work in a wrestling promotion would know she was debuting soon. This culminated in a segment where Santino Marella called her out of the crowd and into the ring.
  • Eye Scream: Summer once threw bubble solution in her eyes as revenge after Emma won a match against her.
  • Five Moves of Doom: Dil-Emma (a tarantula), Emmamite Sandwich (a crossbody to an opponent seated at the bottom turnbuckle), catapult into the Emma Lock (a Muta Lock).
  • Genki Girl: Really gives off this vibe.
  • Land Down Under: The first ever Australian Diva.
  • Odd Friendship: With Paige, off and on.
  • Pungeon Master: Pun after pun after pun off her name. See Catch Phrase.
  • Shout-Out: One of her moves is named the Emmamite Sandwich, a nod to Vegemite - a popular sandwich filling in Australia. Emma herself is a huge fan of it.
  • Womanchild: Most definitely.
