* ComicallyIneptHealing: A funny case of it--she's actually an incredibly competent physician, but Mad Enhancement EX means that she has no restraint, considers all ailments to be equally bad, and uses amputation as her first resort for everything.

* ComicallyIneptHealing: A funny case of it--she's actually an incredibly competent physician, but Mad Enhancement EX means that she has no restraint, considers all ailments to be equally bad, and uses amputation as her first resort for everything. It's something of a running gag with her that she interprets "patient isn't sick anymore because they're dead" to be an acceptable-if-regrettable result.

-->'''Nightingale''': You can't feel joy. No, that's not right. It's not that you can't, it's that you don't. Becoming King didn't stop you from feeling joy. It only sealed your joy away. You've trapped yourself in a cage, ceding your body to a "system" called a "king." Since you feel no joy, you fight automatically and mechanically. If you don't do so, you can't continue being king. No, I haven't seen it myself. I simply know, because that's how I used to be. I cast aside my own humanity, working only to fulfill my goal. I had to pay a price for that, but I didn't mind. I was fine being nothing more than a healing machine. Of course, I can't deny that it's a twisted way of life. Nothing changed from when I was alive, working tenaciously at patients' bedside. But still, I didn't mind. I simply wanted to help expand to the world, with an iron body and an iron will. The hope for medical treatment. The delight of recovery. These things were needed in the world at the time. For that, I abandoned everything I had, but I have no regrets! So let me ask, King of Savages...[[ArmorPiercingQuestion Is your rule truly necessary?]] What prospects for the future do you have? Where do you aim to be, after all is done? You have nothing. Your deeds are like severe burns. That's why--you and I are different. My blood boils for the sake of dreams. Your blood has grown thick and cold, for the sake of ambition. That is your illness. [[PreAssKickingOneLiner Allow me to treat you, Cú Chulainn. Even if I die, I must treat you.]]

* DifficultButAwesome: Fran is consistently compared to fellow Quick [=AoE=] 4-star Berserker Lancelot, but is even less straightforward to use due to her Noble Phantasm's self-stun, making her generally unfavorable. Generally, she trades Lancelot's critical-based buffs for one-turn burst damage on two of her skills -- with both of them active, she does competitive NP damage with single target Berserkers against a single target and high [=AoE=] damage, but her self-stun tends to offset this negatively. Wail of the Living Dead has an incredibly inconsistent 60% stun chance, but more importantly has a 30% defense debuff (mechanically, a 30% attack buff against a single target). Overload sports another 30% buff to her Noble Phantasm, but inflicts 1500 Burn damage over five turns. Galvanism gives her good NP generation with high uptime (3 turn duration on a 5 turn duration), but in the first place her Noble Phantasm is hard to spam and as a Berserker she has low hit counts and generation stats. With the release of Scathach-Skadi and her Quick buff, it's proven that like Lancelot, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0omcuOcWNbc Frakenstein can loop her NP consecutively and is valuable as a farming Servant]], but she requires very specific tools to work around the Stun debuff unlike other Skadi partners.

* LivingToy: Somehow the Mini Cú from Prisma Causeway event ended up in Chaldea as a plush toy, with the actual Cú Alter trying to get rid of it by gifting it to you as a return gift during his Valentine scene. It later develops a rivalry with the Viy replica Anastasia gives to you.

** The Greek heroes she gains bonus damage against includes ''Hektor'' of all people.[[note]]It also does not include Leonidas, probably because he is the only Greek hero to be pure history and not myth (even Iskandar is SemiDivine).[[/note]] Obviously that is only the case in gameplay, while in story meeting him only elicits regrets that they couldn't fight together (as he died before she joined the Trojans). The material book explains this as if she starts thinking about people like Hektor, she'll eventually start thinking about their relation with Achilles, thus angering her.

* LooksLikeAJobForAquaman: {{Downplayed}} as she's still a capable Berserker in gameplay, she just has a bunch of competition against the many SR Berserkers there are. However, considering the fifth Lostbelt is centered around Greek mythology, and most of the enemies you fight in Atlantis are male, her third skill makes her very effective for the chapter.

* FrontlineGeneral: She takes to the field with her Amazon troops in Agartha, even battling Megalos personally, rather than delegating the task to her sub-commanders, presumably to take advantage of her Roar of the War God skill.

* GlassCannon: Although true of the Berserker class in general, Penthesilea deserves special mention. She has the second highest ATK among all 4* Berserkers (Heracles beats her by 150), but her HP is the third lowest of the same rarity. She also has ''no'' survivability skills unlike Heracles, meaning she hits the hardest of all Berserkers of her rarity thanks to her Charisma, Divinity, EX Madness Enhancement, and Bellow of Ares, but will die to most anything attacking her. This is emphasized in her final boss fight in Agartha, as with every Break Bar, she gains a permanent, unremovable ATK buff ''and'' a permanent DEF debuff penalty.

It also includes Centaur-type monsters.[[/note]] that doesn't even include, say, Leonidas, an ''historically'' Greek Male.

** She hates being called beautiful and is worried about appearing too beautiful. This is exaggerated in "Dead Heat Summer Race" wherein she shows up berserk because she ''thought'' someone was calling her beautiful, when they hadn't even noticed her and were talking about the river; she calms down upon clarification. She is even glad that the area's gimmick, which speeds up racers as they appear more beautiful, means that she herself is less beautiful in comparison. This Berserk Button is downplayed the most, as her later bond lines show that she grudgingly allows the protagonist to admire her beauty so long as they also acknowledge her strength.

** During the Setsubun event, Mata Hari tries to cover Penthesilea's ears, since most of the divas and beauty-obsessed women keep using the words "beauty" and "beautiful". When Penthesilea ultimately hears it and asks who is being called "beautiful", Nero (oblivious to the situation) answers with "YES! I AM!" and the Berserker immediately calms down.
