Added DiffLines:

** Monet's BerserkButton is having her mind messed with. That hasn't stopped her from using or threatening to use her telepathy in ways that causes severe and sometimes permanent harm like when she put Ballistique in a coma as retribution for shooting Guido.
** When Pip the Troll accidentally had his consciousness transferred into Monet's body, Monet is furious and Lorna and Rictor for finding it funny. However, Monet herself is often insensitive to the plight of other people as seen when she mocked Siryn's grief over her dead baby.


* InconvenientAttraction: A possibility given her hot & cold nature with him. [[WordOfGod Cullen Bunn]] described her relationship with him as torturous love, which seemed to confirm she had feelings for him,[[note]][[https://twitter.com/cullenbunn/status/1009239337588940803 Bunn twitter confirmation]][[/note]]. She's made her share of remarks on his violent past and was called out by Callisto as being scared when she saw him lose it in their fight. While she was never bothered by others making insinuations on their relationship, she could get very defensive about it with Sabretooth personally. For example, when Psylocke tells them to just get a room, a smiling Monet asked if she was jealous rather than deny the insinuation that was being made. However, when Sabretooth points out her calling him "''Victor''" for the first time instead of "''Creed"'', "''Sabretooth''", or one of her more insulting names, [[https://ic.pics.livejournal.com/silverfang2/29185537/1155241/1155241_900.png she gets really defensive about it]].


* [[BettyAndVeronica Betty]]: As mentioned on the main page, when it came to the Synch portion of their rivalry, Monet was the Veronica to Jubilee's Betty. However, had Bunn's Uncanny run long enough to explore it, she could've been the Betty to Mystique's Veronica. Bunn has [[http://cullenbunn.tumblr.com/post/133700934954/i-feel-like-m-and-mystique-dont-get-along-at-all agreed to her & Mystique not getting along]] and that the former had a torturous love with Creed. While Monet is far from a teddy-bear, she's an angel compared to Raven.



* BettyAndVeronica: Veronica to Jubilee's Betty for Synch, being the arrogant, stuck-up beauty -- and she won without much contest.

* BettyAndVeronica: Veronica to Jubilee's Betty for Synch, being the arrogant, stuck-up beauty -- and she won without much contest. It's reversed in Bunn's Uncanny with Sabretooth where she may have been the Betty to Mystique's Veronica. Bunn noted that they wouldn't get along well, and with Mystique being a former off & on lover to Creed, that may have come up later. Monet is far from a teddy bear, but she's an angel compared to Raven.



** Creed was trickier due to differing writers in [[ComicBook/UncannyXMen2015 Uncanny X-Men]] to [[ComicBook/WeaponX2017 Weapon X]], along with cancellations. But he seems to be in the lead. They had a BelligerentSexualTension in Bunn's Uncanny with [[EveryoneCanSeeIt some]] insinuating there was more going on. Monet sometimes egged-on the insinuations, as noted [[InconvenientAttraction above]] with Psylocke. Pak took a comedy route & removed the belligerence, making them more awkward. However, when they finally address their fall-out, [[https://ic.pics.livejournal.com/silverfang2/29185537/1273920/1273920_900.png a giant heart loomed behind them]], seemingly confirming their feelings.[[note]] Bunn has called them a [[https://twitter.com/cullenbunn/status/1009239337588940803 torturous love]], which confirms the romantic insinuations were deliberate & that he saw them having feelings of love for each other. It's unknown if he was going for ShipTease to a RelationshipUpgrade or {{Subtext}} to a RelationshipReveal. Recent interview linked above in {{Filler}} points to the latter when he said it was a ''hinted romance''.[[/note]][[note]]When Monet first comes up in Weapon X, Deathstrike [[{{Exposition}} tells everyone]] she's Creed's ex girlfriend which ran with the narrative of them being a couple in Uncanny. Due to Pak's more comedic take, Creed & Monet are more awkward with each other and get defensive about their relationship. Meanwhile in Uncanny, as noted, neither of them ever denied any insinuations. So while takes were different, Pak & Bunn combined did seem to write Monet and Creed as having serious feelings for one another.

* HonorBeforeReason: Mordo abducts Monet's father Cartier to lure her into a trap so he can drain her energy and put his cancer into remission. When they are attacked by the Mutant Response Division, Mordo agrees to create a portal so they can escape but notes that doing so would be taxing on his body. Monet offers to let him drain her in exchange for saving them. Despite Guido, Darwin and Cartier pointing out that Mordo had kidnapped her father and would likely never keep any promise he made to her, Monet still insists on fulfilling her end of the bargain.
