* LightIsNotGood: She emits her own HolyBacklight; in fact she one-ups Satsuki with a rainbow one. She's also the BigBad. This is taken even further in episode 23 when she [[spoiler:wears the Shinra Kouketsu which gives us a Shinto goddess-like look.]]

This is taken even further in episode 23 when she [[spoiler:wears the Shinra Kouketsu which gives us a Shinto goddess-like look.]]]] She also owns hundreds of all-white outfits.



* VirginInAWhiteDress: Majorly inverted; Ragyo wears mostly white but is an older, sexually predatory woman, though she talks big about the purifying aspects of fashion conformity.



* WomanInWhite: Owns hundreds of stylish outfits, all-pristine white, and fits perfectly in the sinister connotations of this.



* VirginInAWhiteDress: Played with. Junketsu is referred to as Satstuki's wedding dress, and its white color evokes the traditional associations of white with wedding dresses and virginity. But the way Junketsu sometimes forces itself upon its wearers has implications of rape and loss of innocence.



* WomanInWhite: Anybody who has wore it.



* LightIsNotGood: Barring [[DarkSkinnedBlonde her skin tone]], she's clad in white clothes all the time [[spoiler:save in episode 25]], and is [[BigBad Ragyo]]'s [[TheDragon direct subordinate]]. Fits with the series' overall color-coding of [[GoodColorsEvilColors "White/light = bad, black = good"]].

* HateSink: She is the head of [[MegaCorp REVOCS]] and [[AbusiveParents one of the worst parents in all fiction]]. A cruel dictator who serves as the GreaterScopeVillain, Ragyo sends her daughter, Satsuki, to run Honnouji Academy in the same brutal manner that she controls her domain. She displays no real love for Satsuki, as their mother-daughter bonding moments are instead replaced with what amounts to [[VillainousIncest incestual molestation]]. The action-packed hilarity of the show [[CerebusSyndrome is drowned out]] by a pseudo-CosmicHorrorStory [[KnightOfCerebus the moment she shows up]] and [[spoiler:[[TheWomanBehindTheWoman takes the reins]] from [[DiscOneFinalBoss Satsuki]]]]. From there, it is revealed that [[spoiler:she experimented on both her daughters, Satsuki and Ryuko, then threw the latter out when she thought Ryuko had died]]. She also sent Nui Harime to [[spoiler:kill Soichirou/Isshin, her husband and the father of Ryuko]]. When she finally meets Ryuko, she [[spoiler:{{Mind Rape}}s her and temporarily makes her a minion]]. Finally, she explains that her ultimate goal is to [[spoiler:annihilate humanity and have the alien Life Fibers rule Earth instead]]. None of her evil plans are expanded upon beyond being [[ForTheEvulz evil for the sake of it]]. An abusive mother and tyrant who happily sells out her own species and is far worse than her daughter, Ragyo Kiryuin shortly and quite rightfully took up the mantle of 'Worst Anime Mother Ever' within the hearts of anime fans.



* HateSink: At first appearing to be just another quirky character in this quirky series, the true implications of Nui's character become apparent [[NotSoHarmlessVillain the second she takes out the second Scissor Blade]]. At that point, she becomes Ryuko's personal ArchEnemy, responsible for the lion's share of her lifetime of emotional anguish. Additionally, Nui playfully and gleefully [[{{Troll}} toys with people]], [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps almost everyone]], and displays [[SmugSuper smug self-importance]]. As such, it's satisfying when Ryuko finally dish out her just desserts later on.

Additionally, Nui playfully and gleefully is causing misery in others. She [[{{Troll}} toys with people]], her enemies]], constantly [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps almost everyone]], puts down Ryuko, Satsuki, and anyone who challenges her]] whenever they fight her, displays [[SmugSuper smug self-importance]].

Though it is hinted that at least some of this may have come from Ragyo’s abuse, no sympathy is given to her for it, given how gladly she follows Ragyo’s orders. A cheerful yet psychotic girl who makes her fellow {{Co Dragon|s}} [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Rei Hououmaru]] look like a saint, Nui Harime commits her evil acts under her twisted belief that hate is the same thing as love.

* SuperToughness: To the point where she doesn't even bother to block most attacks, as they almost never even get her hurt. So far she's only been injured one time, during a flashback well before the series proper began, [[spoiler:and when Ryuko cuts off both her arms and Senketsu absorbs them.]]

** The fourth and final breakdown comes in Episode 22, when [[spoiler:Ryuko not only reclaims both halves of the Scissor Blade, but slices both of her arms off]]. At first, she plays it off as a fake-out like the previous one, but when [[spoiler:Senketsu eats her arms]], the villainous breakdown sticks and her cutesy-poo façade is permanently replaced with a SlasherSmile and murderous rage. Even when she does try to put the old façade back on, it's very notably forced, like a mask that doesn't fit anymore.
* VillainousCrush: Seems to have developed one for Ryuko after [[spoiler:learning that she was a human/Life Fiber-hybrid like her,]] and even before that she didn't seem quite sure if she'd rather shank or shag Ryuko.
* VillainousIncest: [[PsychoLesbian Ragyo]] is her mother figure, so this was inevitable. [[spoiler: In fact Ragyo ''is'' her mother, so Ryuko and Satsuki are her sisters. She joins Ragyo in raping Ryuko's [[MindRape mind]] to brainwash her, and kisses her immediately afterwards.]]

* HumanoidAbomination: Her superhuman strength and resilience is attributed to [[spoiler:being born directly from the [[MagicMeteor Primordial Life Fiber's]] artificial womb, in contrast to [[HalfHumanHybrid Ryuko]], who is born from Ragyo but infused with Life Fibers]]. Her inhuman nature is further attributed to her LimitedAnimation and coughing up what resembles cotton stuffing from her when Isshin strikes her in the belly.

* LimitedAnimation: A constant detail underlining how she is somehow ''off''. She almost never seems to make full-body movements, and instead stiffly hops from place to place and spends battles standing still except for her right hand attacking or parrying. The three times she's forced to quickly dodge an attack in her fight with Ryuko, she jumps into the air, spinning around like a cardboard cut-out, stiff as a board. This is later used to full effect in episode 18, when against a revitalized Ryuko she is forced to make completely animated motions and is [[spoiler:is significantly outclassed while doing so]].

* ManipulativeBitch: She reveals to Ryuko that she killed her father, knowing Ryuko would lose control of Senketsu in her rage and die in the process. Later, when she finds herself banned from the school and Ryuko is too doubtful of herself to fight her, she poses as a male student sympathizer and persuades her to get back on her feet just so she can lose control again, also getting Mako in trouble with the Disciplinary Committee so she won't be able to help Ryuko like before.

This is likewise the reason she's such a SmugSuper because she knows she can't be harm by conventional means. The moments she can however is her major BerserkButton.

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: When she first shows up, this cute girl in a flowery get-up just seems like another silly character in a story with a nudist teacher that poses like a model, a hyperactive schoolgirl with a crazy family, a large man with a bondage fetish, and several other colorful characters. Then she establishes herself as somewhat of a threat after she defeats a 3-Star uniform [[SingleStrokeBattle with a single attack]].

If her gleeful declaration that she killed Ryuko's father to get a reaction wasn't enough, episode 13 shows her ''disguising herself as a male student'' just to break Ryuko all over again.

* BadassAdorable: {{Exaggerated|Trope}}, since she's easily one of the strongest fighters in the series, despite dressing up like an ElegantGothicLolita. Additionally, she doesn't rely on Goku Uniforms, yet totally dumbfounds the Elite Four with her ability to crush a Three-Star uniform with ''just her pinky'', and nonchalantly repels just about every attack thrown at her, even Ryuko's powered-up mode.

* BatmanGambit: When Ryuko falls into a HeroicBSOD and refuses to wear Senketsu again, Nui takes advantage of Ryuko's latent desire to protect the helpless by disguising herself as a foolhardy yet determined student who gets in trouble with the Student Council, renewing her will to fight so they can resume their battle.

* BerserkButton: Getting hurt. She takes major pride that she's Nigh-Invulnerable. But the moment she first gets hit with the Scissor Blades, which ended up costing her left eye, is the first time that cutesy facade drops and she stops toying with her victim.

The reason is that [[spoiler:the Life Fibers in her body are too powerful and prevent her from boosting her power further with a Kamui.

* ContraltoOfDanger: Inverted. She has a high-pitched and cute-sounding voice, which ends up being played for danger, and fear instead by contrasting her voice with Satsuki's. She's also highly competent in battle despite not having ClothesMakeTheSuperman applied to her like other characters. Her high-pitched voice suddenly drops down to [[VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry Bernkastel levels]] when [[VillainousBreakdown her sugary façade falls]], revealing herself to be a psychotic maniac.

Satsuki calls Sanageyama to retreat, and when he doesn't listen, Nui blocks the full brunt of his transformed Goku Uniform's attack with just a parasol without a problem, unravels said uniform with her pinky, and nonchalantly knocks him off the edge of the stage.

Just like Ryuko, she also owns a Scissor Blade.

Her personality is also a dark inversion of Ryuko's: a rough and tough tomboy delinquent who is ultimately heroic versus a sweet, cutesy and bubbly girly girl who is actually pure evil. Ryuko is at first obsessed with vengeance and hates Nui to the point of her own detriment, while Nui just toys with Ryuko, but almost as soon as Ryuko matures and learns that there are more important things than revenge, she begins treating Nui as just an annoyance at best and ''Nui'' flips to becoming vengeful and psychotically hateful of Ryuko.

Additionally, Nui playfully and gleefully [[{{Troll}} toys with people]], [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps almost everyone]], and displays [[SmugSuper smug self-importance]].
