* CompanionCube: A darker example - May starts out (apparently, we don't know for sure) just pretending Susie is real, but then she starts to actually believe it. Oh, and of course there's [[spoiler:Amy.]]

* CreepyDoll: Susie, a little bit. Most notably when you can hear her whispering, or the glass on her case cracking - not that these are real, this is all in May's head. She certainly ''looks'' very creepy, too. Also [[spoiler: Amy, the life-size doll made out of body parts.]]

* ShrinkingViolet: May's only comfortable social interactions are with Susie, and she's so shy that she can barely talk in the presence of other people at all, even when they're clearly interested in getting to know her. However, [[spoiler: once she resorts to murder,]] she becomes much more confident.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: May is a particularly heartbreaking-cum-vicious example. She starts out the movie with good intentions just a wee bit [[CloudCuckooLander odd]]. All she wanted was a [[IJustWantToHaveFriends friend]], a ''real'' one but her eccentric nature prevents this from happening. One rejection after another and suddenly years of isolation and repressed self hatred come crashing down on the poor girl's head.

to:

%%* * StalkerWithACrush: May towards Adam.
%%*
Adam [[spoiler: he dumped her]]. It's Subverted when [[Spoiler: May decides to kill him, his new girlfriend, Ambrosia, Polly and Lupe taking their pieces and creating Amy]].
*
{{Stripperific}}: Ambrosia.Ambrosia. She wears a very revealing outfit.

Added DiffLines:

* FamousLastWords:
--> [[spoiler: Polly: "I know you would never hurt me, May'']]

Added DiffLines:

* AdultFear: The blind children briefly works with crawling on a floor covered with glass, cutting their hands and knees open.


* ManicPixieDreamGirl: May isn't one, but both Adam and Polly ''think'' she is. Then her quirkiness stops being charming and becomes [[StrangeGirl just plain weird]]... and things go downhill from there. The whole film can be seen as a {{deconstruct|edCharacterArchetype}} of this trope (as argued in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUJklyYhXkM this video]] by [[WebVideo/NeedsMoreGay Rantasmo]]), with Adam and Polly's fetishization of only certain things about May, and their leaving her when they realize that they don't like May as a whole person, reflected in how May [[spoiler:literally fetishizes only some of their body parts and dismembers them in order to create a "perfect friend" with only the things that she likes]].
