** Played straight when it comes to magic. Training might give a person more control over their magic, but any actual increase in power is negligible at best considering that Katarina spent seven years honing her skills under a tutor (something which is noted to be out of the ordinary) and all it did was let her raise the dirt around her by several more centimeters.

*TheHero: In ''Fortune Lover's'' original plot, Maria was the central character who improved the lives of those around her (particularly the capture target the player choose) and resolved the story's drama. In the light novel story itself, Katarina unwittingly displaces her as such for doing the same thing years before the game's story starts.



** As for Katarina herself, she actually turns out to be an amazing actress. Or at least has the potential. Sure, she's basing her lines off what Katarina from the game would say because she didn't have time to learn what she was ''supposed'' to be saying, but acting involves far more than just reading a script.

* HostileShowTakeover: In a manner of speaking. Katarina forcibly takes over the heroine position by seducing all the love interests, their rivals and the supposed main heroine herself. However, she does it on accident.

* BlueIsHeroic: Blue is Katarina's primary color, with bright blue eyes and a turquoise and navy dress. It makes it all the more ironic that her original role was that of a villain. Eye-wise, it seems the original intention is most likely trying to invoke sinister {{Icy|BlueEyes}} or even CreepyBlueEyes, which the manga does invoke in one of the color illustration.

* FriendlyAddressPrivileges: Keith starts off calling Katrina "Lady Katrina" but she says that is too formal for siblings. She insists on being addressed as "big sister", which he proceeds to do.

* IcyBlueEyes: Katarina's belief that she has a villainous face comes down to two factors. One, she has TsurimeEyes. Two, her eyes are a light blue that she thinks look harsh and cold. Nobody else really agrees with her on either and barely even know that she thinks that. The [[https://imgur.com/a/Y2x0vrf extra illustration]] of manga's Volume 1 definitely does invoke this, however.

* SplitPersonality: One of the interpretation of Sophia and Atsuko's personalities after the latter reincarnated into the former, although with Atsuko always staying in the background, as in Volume 2 when Katarina is in a coma, Atsuko's voice inside Sophia's mind is guiding Sophia to Katarina in her bed before Atsuko apparently jumped into Katarina's dream to try to wake her up.

* SuperpowerLottery: The ability to use magic is almost exclusively found among the upper class. Maria is not only a powerful mage despite being a commoner, but she is able to use light magic (which is so rare that there are less than ten people capable of using it in the entire country). This ends up being deconstructed. Because commoners with magic are so rare, [[MistakenForCheating people assume that her mother must have slept with a nobleman]], and the rumors eventually result in her father abandoning the family. Also, being blessed with such rare magic leads people to believe that all her constant academic success is a result of said magic, when she's actually a defiance of HardWorkHardlyWorks.

Added DiffLines:

* OldTimeyAnkleTaboo: When Katarina went to the lake to cool down one summer, a scandalised Jeord and Keith frantically covered each other's eyes when she took off her shoes and lifted up her dress to her knees to play in the shallows.


** Thanks to Katarina's newly found free spirit, she cures Jeord's boredom and isolation, Alan's inferiority complex, Keith's loneliness and Nicol's family issues. As a result, they not only fall for her, but they never develop into a sadist, a bitter rival, a playboy and a suspicious and withdrawn pretty boy like they were in the game they come from. [[spoiler:She also nets herself the student council president by insisting on seeing him as a gentle boy instead of a dark magician, which helps him to drive out the ghost possessing him before he can commit any crimes.]] All of them fall for her as a result.

* BigSisterInstinct: Katrina's plan to avoid destruction in Keith's route is to shower him with attention while they are still children. By becoming his doting big sister, she reasons there's no way he would kill her later. Besides, he's adorable and she wants to dote on him anyway.

* BrotherSisterIncest: Keith wants this, with him being in love with his stepsister Katarina. Unlike many examples of this trope, their mother is encouraging this to happen instead of Katarina's engagement to Jeord. In the original game there's also Nicol and Sophia, although the current situation means that won't happen anymore.


* ChasteHeroine: Katarina tends to brush off romantic gestures and veiled confessions because she doesn't consider herself attractive. As a result she doesn't mind doing things like offering to hand feed her stepbrother.

Added DiffLines:

** Keith is definitely a straight example and butts heads with his sister's fiancée whenever Jerod visits (which is often).

* HypocriticalHumor: Katarina responds with amused affection when she thinks of dense harem protagonists and considers Maria one, but completely fails to realize that she's become one herself.

** Rufus is an even straighter example. He's only cared about one person before, a random sick guy who was something like a best friend or father figure. But Katarina wins him over with her innocence and lack of pride and for the first time he finds himself in love with a woman, though he definitely has a lot of experience.

Added DiffLines:

* ZeroApprovalGambit: [[spoiler:Prince Jeffrey pretends to wanting to be a king in order to gather supporters, especially the more unsavory ones, in order to identify and eliminate them as threat to the realm and so he can help support his brothers in their claim for the throne, while he is content with sitting out.]]


* ServileSnarker: Katarina's personal maid Anne worships her, but doesn't hesitate to make fun of her in the slightest. Interestingly, one of the reason for Anne's UndyingLoyalty to the current Katarina is that Katarina doesn't mind that she's this, which broke through Anne's YesMan attitude she kept up before as a survival mechanism.

*TheAce: Jerod is skilled at absolutely everything. He's even more efficient in Katarina's farm than Katarina herself. Poor Alan has a complex over being compared to his perfect twin.



*HighClassGloves: Fancy gloves show up often considering the bulk of the cast are nobility. Katarina wears opera gloves at formal occasions, such as tea parties or her birthday party. As a teenager, her default outfit includes wrist length gloves.



* NonIdleRich: Something as dirty and laborious as ''gardening'' is considered an odd hobby for a daughter of nobility. Katarina initially took it up so she could provide for herself in case she was exiled.

* SplitPersonality: One of the interpretation of Sophia and Atsuko's personalities after the latter reincarnated into the former, although with Atsuko always staying in the background, as in Volume 2 when Katarina's been put on a coma, Atsuko's voice inside Sophia's mind is guiding Sophia to Katarina in her bed before Atsuko apparently jumped into Katarina's dream to try to wake her up.
