YMMV: Summer Glau
- Les Yay: In practically every show she's in, Summer's characters have some of this with other prominent female characters, if there's one around.
- Memetic Badass: Both Summer herself and her characters tend to have this reputation, if xkcd's "River Tam Beats Up Everyone" bit is any indication. It helps that she's a skilled martial artist in real life.
- Memetic Mutation: The 'Summer Glau Curse'; the idea that any show she appears on will be cancelled. Shows with multiple seasons seem to be an exception.
- Memetic Sex Goddess: It's a running gag within her fanbase (and here on TV Tropes) that everyone wants Summer and/or characters played by her.
- Moe: She somehow makes the piercing gaze of a killer robot from the future come across as adorable.
- The Woobie: Summer is good at playing these, with her most famous of such roles being River.
