* OutsideContextProblem: Not only did Taylor pop up out of nowhere, with any information regarding her past speculation at best, but no one is even sure what god she originally killed to make her the Eight Campione in the first place. Part of the reason she's believed to be a Seer is how her sudden entrance into the Campione-verse sent existing Seers into a tizzy from the disruption to their visions. Even if she wasn't a Campione (notoriously hard to predict for Seers) and getting info from Pandora, her sudden entrance into the world has sent even Alice for a loop.

* HollywoodHacking: Taylor, when combining temporary hacking powers with her Tinker-Tech supercomputer, is able to hack easily enough to create a flawless fake background for herself, even being able to slip inside of the Pentagon's systems and give herself a government payroll with ease.

Added DiffLines:

** Lisa, already a good hacker, becomes even better as a result of not having to deal with the Master/Stranger and anti-Thinker defenses put into practically everything important on Bet.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainTeamUp: [[spoiler: Zaliki is eventually approached by a Heretic God to ally against Taylor]].


* AbsenceOfEvidence: The Council of the Sands comes to the conclusion that, since it shouldn't be possible for a normal person to become an UnPerson to the degree that not even ''they'' can find out anything at all about her, that she has criminal ties and has somehow managed to erase all record of her existence. They're wrong, but it is a logical conclusion based off of what they know.

* BloodKnight: The Shards of Infinity Authority seems, as Taylor lampshades, to represent this aspect of Scion. In combat scenarios, or when Taylor is preparing for a future conflict, it's cooperative, almost eager, but it tends to drag its feet otherwise, giving her powers even ''she'' finds dubiously useful, like a Thinker power that lets her know the elemental composition of anything, down to the molecular level, at a glance, or giving her combat powers when she's trying to get a power that can analyze her half-made Tinker-Tech supercomputer and find out why it is working when it shouldn't, only for it to jump to a useful one almost instantly when she starts thinking about future conflicts.
* BoringButPractical: Taylorís strategy for dealing with supposedly unblockable OneHitKO powers? Simply donít get hit in the first place. Eternityís Sight certainly helps in that regard.

** Due to a lack of knowledge of Taylor's origins and her Authorities, the magic organizations of the Campione Earth (specifically the Egyptian Council of the Sands) come to believe that she's a criminal who's had any records of her origins erased to the point that they cannot find them, has Seer powers that she might not be aware of, and have come to conclusions about her powers that some of them have trouble really believing despite it being the logical result(s) based on the available evidence, like her fighting a golden ice god in the ''Sahara''.

* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: Taylor, having fully expected to die in the process of beating Scion, is a little unsure of what to do now that she's a Campione.



** Anit herself, disbelieving Taylor's brief explanation of Scion, believes that Taylor's first god was a god of creation of some kind, due to all the effects Shards of Infinity can produce.

Part of the reason she's believed to be a Seer is how her sudden entrance into the Campione-verse sent existing Seers into a tizzy from the disruption to their visions.
* PhysicalGod: Scion is powerful enough that despite not technically being a Heretic God, Taylor's role in slaying him is enough to justify Pandora making her a Campione anyways.

Added DiffLines:

* SimplifiedSpellcasting: Discussed by Taylor and Doni, it takes more willpower and energy, requires some practice to do properly, and may result in the effect being a bit less powerful, but you ''can'' use an Authority without needing the full incantation.


Added DiffLines:

** Anit actually lampshades this after noting all the various powers Taylor has used with the same incantation, and theorizes that her first god was a creation god of some kind.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: Zaliki, especially with his plans to manipulate Taylor despite trying to do that kind of thing to a Campione being considered equivalent to suicide. Lord Harekty considers him a suicidal fool, and even his loyal assassin can't help but have doubts after seeing Taylor and Doni's duel, and the damage done to the battlefield afterward, despite it just being a spar.


* EntertaininglyWrong: Due to a lack of knowledge of Taylor's origins and her Authorities, the magic organizations of the Campione Earth (specifically the Egyptian Council of the Sands) come to believe that she's a criminal who's had any records of her origins erased to the point that they cannot find them, has Seer powers that she might not be aware of, and have come to conclusions about her powers that some of them have trouble really believing despite it being the logical result(s) based on the available evidence, like her fighting a golden ice god in the ''Sahara''.

* EvilLaugh: Taylor lets one out when Anit tells her that magic can be considered a skill... right after she's found a power that, in a manner similar to Uber's, allows her to learn and retain skills ''really'' fast.

* InstantExpert: Downplayed, but as stated above under EvilLaugh, Taylor finds a way to use her Shards authority to allow her to learn magic incredibly fast and even helps Anit improve.

* TheOmniscient: Taylor's Eternity's Sight Authority from Scion draws inspiration from her old swarm sense, allowing her total understanding of everything going on around her in an eight block radius, making her effectively omniscient within that spherical zone when it's active. Unfortunately, the longer it's on and the more information she absorbs, the worse the migraine she gets as a result is.
