Considering [[{{TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons}} the apparent inspiration of the source material]], this isn't an exaggeration.


* CannotTellAJoke: Is fond of her "Sword Maiden Jokes" which really amount to her denying being Sword Maiden and saying she can't read a map. That and [[spoiler:pretending to sic [[SewerGator Linda]] on the party for a laugh.

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] with her {{Familiar}} Linda, the [[spoiler:[[SewerGator dire crocodile]]]]. It's revealed in episode 5 that [[spoiler:she was controlling the crocodile the party encountered, going after them only in an attempt to scare them before going after the group of goblins. However, the sight of the goblins causes her to FreakOut and pass out, which breaks her hold on the crocodile and allows her to go berserk]].

* [[spoiler:SewerGator: Linda, her familiar.]]
* TheStoic: Much of her time onscreen has her speaking in a calm, motherly voice. Even in the few times she was annoyed her voice remained constantly collected.
** NotSoStoic: That is until episode 5. After Goblin Slayer [[ReasonYouSuckSpeech lays into her]] as mentioned above, she breaks out into a very much desperate plea to get him to stay, and breaks down crying when it fails and he leaves. Also, in a flashback showing [[spoiler:her [[SewerGator familiar]]]] attacking the group of goblins, it's revealed that [[spoiler:the sight of the goblins drove her into a panic to the point of falling unconscious.]]


* TokenEvilTeammate: Of the AffablyEvil variety. While he gets along well with the rest of the team, he's an unrepentant cannibal and a practitioner of necromancer, which has been established to be [[MoralEventHorizon "super evil"]]. He also openly claims he'll eat his part members and use their bones in his necromancy should they die.

* CantArgueWithElves: Unlike Canon!High Elf, whose abrasiveness is only really due to aggressive youth, Abridged!High Elf genuinely holds the stereotypical "I'm better than you" attitude of elves.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's rude, crass, has a classic case of the OurElvesAreBetter mentality, and gets into petty squabbles with Dwarf Shaman. However, she genuinely cares about helping others and admits that the work Goblin Slayer does is more important than she could possibly realize.

to:

* WeUsedToBeFriends: Episodes 2 and 5 give some hints of her being previously associated with Goblin Slayer (Being his companion) but something broke the team.


* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: In Episode 5, she calls on her goddess by saying "it's ya girl Priestess", and winking.

Added DiffLines:

* SirSwearsALot: It has a propensity to say [[PrecisionFStrike "Fuck"]] or any of its variants every other sentence.


* TooDumbToLive: Like in canon, they were ill-prepared and didn't come up with a proper strategy for clearing out a goblin nest other than "go in and kill them all". Needless to say, [[{{Understatement}} mistakes were made]].

!!The Beholder
!!!'''Coffinjockey'''
----
* AxCrazy: It has a very clear HairTriggerTemper and attacks anything that comes near it.
* BizarreAlienBiology: The pupil on The Beholder's main eye moves above the veins on its eye, as opposed to the eye moving around in a socket. Goblin Slayer thinks this is gross.
* CatchPhrase: '''''HELLO?!'''''
* CloudCuckooLander: It rambles nonsense to itself, though while it isn't exactly [[WordSaladHumor word salad]], it still barely makes sense. Dwarf Shaman lampshades this by saying that it doesn't look "all there" to him.
-->'''Beholder:''' Are there some motherfuckers hiding down the hallway? Come into my field of vision! You guys speak Deep Speech? You immune to fire? I got fire! You still there? Hi? '''''HELLO?!'''''
* EldritchAbomination: A very comical take on the being, but it is still one nonetheless.
* FamousLastWords: '''''HELLO?!'''''
* HairTriggerTemper: If its reaction toward a rock being thrown near it is anything to go off of.
-->'''Beholder:''' What the ''fuck'', yo? A ''rock''? You throw a fucking rock at me? Here, here's what I think of your rock. (''WaveMotionGun's the rock'')
* LanguageBarrier: It can't understand a thing Goblin Slayer and his crew are saying on the grounds that it only understands and speaks Deep Speech.
* SdrawkcabSpeech: This is what Deep Speech is, and it's the only language that The Beholder can understand.
* WeaksauceWeakness: If [[CloudCuckooLander anything The Beholder says can be taken at face value]], something as simple as a rock hitting its central eye can kill it.

Added DiffLines:

** As mentioned under ObfuscatingInsanity below, Goblin Slayer's AxCrazy, goblin-obsessed, BloodKnight personality may be a coping mechanism that allows him to focus all of his hatred and rage onto the goblins that took everything from him.


* IdiotHero: Warrior is the self-styled leader of Titan Storm. He considers Wizard, or "Magic Girl" as he calls her, the "weak link" on the sole basis of not being able to pull a rabbit out of her hat, was the one who came up with the name of the team and even has a theme song. He even has a sword he calls "Endbringer" which he relies upon for navigation in the goblin cave, which promptly gets the team lost. When Endbringer fails him (due to being too long to swing in a goblin cave), Warrior promptly gets "Akame Ga Killed".
