* GenreSavvy: Understood the nature of their fellow captives and the purpose for the coliseum the second they laid eyes upon the both of them. Their general knowledge has also proven to be useful in regards to the catacomb trials.


* TVTropesWillRuinYourVocabulary: A good portion of his dialogue is quoting tropes by name.



* TVTropesWillRuinYourVocabulary: In the habit of [[{{Lampshading}} referring to tropes]] [[ConversationalTroping by name]].


* [[spoiler: InsaneForgiveness: She offed herself to save the person who was trying to kill her...but to her credit, she didn't think of it that way then, and was still trying to figure out her motivations late into current endgame. At the time it was something more like 'taking herself out of the narrative' or 'making an irrational decision at the last possible second.' After that, she becomes an advocate for the masterminds, despite still being a victim herself.]]


** DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Was certainly this to the students in his mutual killing game.


* BilingualBonus: She and Hotaka occasionally sign at each other, she translates a Mandarin phrase of Liao's for the others, and she can IC pick up Kazune's suggestions during trials.



* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler: 'Matsura' means 'enshrined.' Mostly a cool coincidence because this is her second game appearance, but still.]]



* SuicidalPacifism: So far the only fighting she's done is the verbal sort, even when she's been physically attacked multiple times.

to:

* SuicidalPacifism: So far the only fighting she's done is the verbal sort, even when she's been physically attacked multiple times. Spitting at Chiyo doesn't count. [[spoiler: Later explained in that these are the people she's trying to help--what's the point in fighting back? Even more explained when you think about the manner of her death, because if anything she's more prone to shutting down and letting it happen now.]]



* TheNicknamer: Has a nickname for everyone in the cast and almost never refers to people by name. Classic examples: "Colorstay-kun" for Daisuke, "Madness-chan" for Shizuka, and "Bundere-chan" for Arika. Overlaps with MaliciousMisnaming, since many people express their dislike of nicknames and her embarrassing ones especially, but she refuses to stop. [[spoiler: She makes exceptions for people she [[FirstNameBasis really, really likes,]] which as of endgame is Minoru, Hotaka, and Daisuke.]]

* ThinkingOutLoud: Constantly phrases this like "The Narrator wonders..." Also occasionally lapses into TalkingToThemselves when she answers her voices out loud without realizing.

to:

* ThirdPersonPerson: It never stops. Even Daisuke is baffled and impressed by her dedication.The amount of individual mistakes she makes HERE, though, can be counted on one hand, only happening when she's really emotional.


* [[spoiler: BeautyEqualsGoodness: The endgame art was too good to her.]]
* BefriendingTheEnemy: She and Jun get off on the wrong foot very early in the game, but they end up going from neutral to cordial to legitimately caring as Jun improves himself. [[spoiler: The Orator forgives a lot of things, but mind control doesn't just halt your own development, it deeply fucks with other people's.]]
* BigBeautifulWoman: She's the...shall we say, curviest girl in the cast, despite being one of the youngest (she was an early bloomer). Just look at her sprites.



* EveryScarHasAStory: Seems very aware of this even if other people aren't: she has [[CoveredWithScars a large collection of scars all over her body]] and one small one on her face, and considers them very important. Also one of the most likely people to ask others about theirs. Later, her arms and hands get messed up thanks to a Ludi bomb.

Also one of the most likely people to ask others about theirs. Later, her arms and hands get messed up thanks to a Ludi bomb. [[spoiler: Turns out her body scars are from her [[GoodScarsEvilScars self-sacrifice during her own mutual killing]]]].



* [[spoiler: GoodAllAlong: She was the Orator and on the masterminds' side from the beginning. TheReveal predictably comes with a GoodCostumeSwitch as well, when she poofs into a Servant robe.]]



* HearingVoices: A symptom of her amnesia? [[spoiler: Nope, she just doesn't like to bring it up when she's in a normal state of mind.]]

to:

* HearingVoices: A symptom of her amnesia? [[spoiler: Nope, she just doesn't like to bring it up when she's in a normal state of mind. This turns out to be an obfuscation, though, because those voices were the Servants and the dead characters keeping up a constant running dialogue inside her head.]]



* IdentityAmnesia: A trip to the catacombs apparently [[EasyAmnesia wipes her memory]] of [[LossOfIdentity everything]], including her own name and [[AmnesiacDissonance the fact that she was a mastermind.]] Her personality does a complete 180, needless to say. (She gets better when she dies in a later run.)

Amnesiameya is mostly influenced by the Servant voices she hears, which explains the uncharacteristic violence.]] Her personality does a complete 180, needless to say.

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: TheOmniscient: She claims to be this throughout the game, which sounds just like a ridiculous boast until the end. Thanks to the HiveMind, she isn't just privy to everything that happened in the coliseum, but the previous lives of the masterminds and all their victims. In addition, she's the only Servant who can still converse with the double-dead.]]

* {{The Friend Nobody Likes}}: Daisuke "no fun at parties" Hirabayashi. (Even if they mess with him, Daisuke is actually one of the most friendly with the most amount of people.)

JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Any unambiguous 'jerkassness' if that ever existed has fallen away.

* LeeroyJenkins: Tended to die very quickly in catacomb runs for her unique method of problem solving. At one point she attempted to stab Hephaestus.



* [[spoiler: TheDisembodied: Sort of. She's executed in the second trial but comes back as the Shining Golden Orb--this had been demonstrated previously in catacomb runs but everyone was surprised to see it happen in real life.]]



* AlasPoorVillain: She still ran a mutual killing game, but you couldn't tell from her manner of death--despite being unarmed in more ways than one, she came across Isaac committing murder and attacked him, which resulted in both their deaths. She only allowed herself to die when she found Daisuke still breathing, though. Could also be DeathByDespair, since she didn't have to interfere and Isaac was blind, but she no longer wanted to live.



* BerserkButton: Don't fuck with her helmet. Triggers a long-term hatred of Ella when they purposely damage it in chapter 2.
* DespairEventHorizon: The loss of two girlfriends actually doesn't do it--it was the breaking of her helmet, which was helping her cope in the first place.



* ConstantlyCurious: Her catch phrase is 'it's always better to know' and she's one of the most likely people to straight-up ask questions about other characters' backstories.



* IdentityAmnesia: A trip to the catacombs apparently [[EasyAmnesia wipes her memory]] of [[LossOfIdentity everything]], including her own name and [[AmnesiacDissonance the fact that she was a mastermind.]] Her personality does a complete 180, needless to say. (She gets better.)

* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: [[spoiler:Before Isaac's death.]]
-->[[spoiler:"I was looking for him for hours because each time someone died we would just be glad it wasn't us. And something felt wrong. I was looking for him because I knew I'd have to say goodbye. I knew in my gut that he did it but I wanted the opportunity and I watched it float away."]]

-->[[spoiler:"They didn't deserve this pain I'm feeling now. Because it is the worst kind of pain I have ever felt. It's worse than every burn Uncle Genji put on me... It's... it's awful. And I'm sorry I gave them this pain."]]




to:

* WasItAllALie: [[spoiler:Isaac's final note to her left her with so many questions, because he was blind and didn't have the ability to write much. The fact he gave her so much hope of [[IfWeGetThroughThis things like a cabin in the woods and getting married]] and then up and killed two people still confuses her.]]
