Added DiffLines:

* FatalFlaw: {{Pride}}, mixed in with BigSisterInstinct. [[NotSoDifferent Just like Lelouch]], Cornelia is normally a capable Knightmare pilot and strategist, but if her younger siblings are in danger, she’ll act very rashly. Additionally, she progressively acts more and more aggressively against the Lions due to repeatedly taking losses against them. [[spoiler:It all comes to a head in Chapter 29, where the Paladins not only rescue Tohdoh, but also destroy the Avalon. While Schneizel was not on the ship, the loss of the vessel, combined with her earlier defeats (including having the Paladins rescue Nunnally while she is helpless to do anything) lead her to recklessly charge Voltron, which ends with her Knightmare getting wrecked and Cornelia herself captured]].


** Rivalz possesses DeflectorsShields - fitting for someone who always wants to help his friends. More subtly, given certain reveals in Chapter 27, it's implied his powers also represent how he was shielding himself from the truth regarding the ghettos versus the settlement.

* ThrowingOffTheDisability: The possibility of using the healing pods aboard the Castle of Lions to restore her sight and vision is discussed. [[spoiler:Once they do place her in a pod, Coran says that, while the pod can heal her legs, [[RealityEnsures she'll still need therapy to walk again.]] Restoring her sight, though, is more problematic since it's the result of a Geass.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DeflectorShields: His Geass of Absolute Protection.


** Finally, in Chapter 23, [[spoiler:she not only has to witness Voltron breakout Tohdoh and destroy the Avalon (though with the knowledge that Schneizel was not on it at the time, but she is then captured by Kallen and becomes a prisoner of the Paladins]].

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Are head and shoulders beyond ''anything'' that Earth has at the moment. Even a Knight of the Round can only hope for a draw against them.



* CommonalityConnection: Hits it off with Rakshata early on due to their mutual interest in advanced technology.



** He's also one to both to Cécile and Lloyd - he has the latter's borderline obsession over a particular piece of technology (in this case, the Castle of Lions), as well as the former's understanding and personable nature.

to:

** He's also one to the Earth-based Knightmare Researchers (Lloyd and Rakshata), as while he possesses traits from both to Cécile and Lloyd - he has the latter's of them (Lloyd's borderline obsession over with machinery and Rakshata's MotherlyScientist tendencies, albeit a particular piece of technology (in this case, the Castle of Lions), as paternal version), Coran is extremely well adjusted socially and has a far easier time working with others, as he was originally trained to be a servant of the former's Altean Royal Family and thus has a better understanding and personable nature.of other people than his fellow scientists.



** Finally (for now), she is defeated by Kallen while guarding the Avalon, who explicitly tells her she isn't worth Zero's time. Meanwhile, Suzaku, Milly, and Rivalz are demolishing the rest of her forces. The girl can't catch a break.

Added DiffLines:

* CommonalityConnection: Quickly forms a rapport with Coran over their mutual love of technology.


** TheChick is divided between Shirley (feminine and TheHeart), Rivalz (also something of TheHeart, but too silly for the other roles) and Allura (who, again, is TheHeart).

* AscendedExtra: Out of the Code Geass characters, his role in canon is arguably the smallest and least important. Here he gets ''far'' more screentime as a member of the Paladins of Voltron

* BarrierWarrior: [[spoiler:His Geass lets him created a barrier to protect himself. The only problem is that nothing can get in or out, including him.]]


Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Rakshata]]
!!Rakshata Chawla
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rakshata_Chawla.png]]
A mild-mannered MadScientist from India, Rakshata Chawla is a mostly-friendly rival to the team of Lloyd Asplund and Cécile Croomy.
----
* BollywoodNerd: She a MadScientist from India and her appearance and other characteristics contrast her rival, who appears quite British.
* MadScientist: Like her rival Lloyd Asplund, Rakshata Chawla is a mostly benign version. Not evil enough to be 100% MadScientist, but too quirky and young to be TheProfessor.
* MotherlyScientist: Thinks of her Knightmare frames as her children.
[[/folder]]

Added DiffLines:

* GoodCounterpart: Due to being both the Black Paladin and primarily fighting via magic (ShockAndAwe from his geass), Lelouch acts as one to both Zarkon and Haggar.


* LongRangeFighter: It has enough ExtraEyes to pull off a BeamSpam via EyeBeams, but it's never shown to possess any close range attacks - it doesn't even try hitting the paladins with its arms.



* WaveMotionGun: Its chest blaster is the most powerful of its many beam weapons, and it can combine all its energy beams into a massive torrent of energy capable of overwhelming even the Yellow Lion's shoulder cannon.

Added DiffLines:

* WrongGenreSavvy: Given his past experiences with people ([[AllThereInTheManual which were detailed in non-video format]]), it's implied that Mao thought he might be able to beat the Paladins by revealing their secrets to each other, as whenever he did this previously, his enemies would devolve into infighting (he once wiped out an ''entire village'' this way). Thus, [[spoiler:he never considers the possibility that the Paladins would work together to overcome him, leading to his defeating Chapter 28]].


* EvilerThanThou: On the receiving end - while Britannia is certainly a major problem on Earth, it's nowhere near as dangerous as the Galra empire, since it has nothing comparable to Zarkon's fleets or Haggard's Robeasts.

to:

* EvilerThanThou: On CantCatchUp: Technologically, they're nowhere near the receiving end - while level of the Lions. In regards to skill, though, they out class their opponents, not that it does them any good.
* ALighterShadeOfBlack: While
Britannia is certainly a major problem on Earth, it's nowhere near as dangerous as the Galra empire, since it has nothing comparable to Zarkon's fleets or Haggard's Robeasts.Robeasts. Additionally, while we've been introduced to sympathetic Britannians who still side with their empire, the only sympathetic Galra seen so far are part of [[LaResistance the Blade of Marmora]].


Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: Schneizel has a preference for these strategies, preferring simple plans that get results over flashy ones that are likely to fail.


Added DiffLines:

* LightIsNotGood: Schneizel dresses in bright colors, but he's supportive of a racist conquering empire (though he would prefer [[PragmaticVillainy a lighter touch over a firm grip]]), has no problems with using his crippled half sister as bait to lure out the Paladins of Voltron, [[spoiler:and canonically, was willing to use a nuclear fortress to try and subordinate the entire world to his will]].

Added DiffLines:

* NinjaMaid: Is still this, though she hasn't yet had much of a chance to show off her skills.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassCrew: They hit a few rocks on the way, but they've certainly beome this. Case in point, their coordinated plans to defeat Cornelia and Schneizel when attacking [[spoiler:the ''Avalon'']] and [[spoiler:Mao]].


Added DiffLines:

* RelatedInTheAdaptation: According to Lost Colors' canon, [[spoiler:he briefly ruled Britannia before willingly exiling himself within a thought elevator, meaning that he is actually Lelouch's great to the x power uncle. Here, the two are implied to be half-siblings, based on the information provided]].


Added DiffLines:

* CompositeCharacter: As mentioned above, he's the only paladin who is completely composited with one of the canon paladins - he inherited virtually all of Lance's traits (including the latter's womanizing, despite canonically only harboring feeling for Milly).


Added DiffLines:

* AchillesHeel: Mao's power allows him to read the mind of anyone within five hundred meters of him, but there are some caveats - normally, he hears ''all of them at the same time'', and while he can focus said power down to one individual, the tradeoff is that he sacrifices its full range while doing so. [[spoiler:It also only works on organic life.]]
