* ItGetsEasier: Implied. Killing just one person is a ''huge'' deal in Anniversary. By Legends, she's gunning down mercenary armies by the hundreds.

[[folder:Doppelganger]]

* EvilTwin: In ''VideoGame/TombRaider'' and ''Tomb Raider Anniversary'', Lara's Doppelganger has no skin.

* KillAndReplace: Subverted. [[spoiler:In ''Lara's Shadow'', the Doppelganger ''is'' explicitly ordered to kill Lara, but instead of replacing her afterwards, she must then kill herself too. Natla justifies this as not wanting to see Lara's face ever again.]]

* WhenSheSmiles: An odd example, since her default expression seems to be a very subtle smile. However, the smile that forms on her face as [[spoiler:she watches Natla drown]] is certain to send shivers down your spine. It is undeniably creepy, but in a strange way, also beautiful, since it signifies the beginning of a free life.
