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.
    • Could also be considered one in real life at least where her career is concerned. The last four shows that she's been on have all been cancelled after one or two seasons.
