- Chubby Chef: The first, and thus far, only Rune Factory or Harvest Moon bachelorette to be visibly overweight. While it's possible to persuade her to lose weight, doing so is completely optional, and she's marriageable either way.

- Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: Drinks tomato juice instead of blood.
- It's All My Fault: After Raguna saves her from Gelwein's control, Noire says this about Mist's kidnapping. Raguna talks her out of it, though.
- Last of Her Kind: Sole remaining members of a vampire race, which by Word of God died off more from lack of interest in reproducing than from being hunted down. Iris is implied in fan material to not be a full blooded member of her species, which is also apparently 'not' vampires, just something that can't enter a church, sleeps during the day, drinks blood, and passes out if one gives it garlic.
- Literal Split Personality: Due to being the last of her kind, the original Iris split herself into Blanche and Noire so that she wouldn't be lonely anymore.
- Magic Music: The Spirit Song.
- More Than Mind Control: Gelwein manipulates Iris Noire this way, telling her she's a worthless fool with no friends. And it works. If Raguna gets Blanche to intervene, Noire will even tell her that she doesn't know her and that she has nothing.
- Mysterious Waif: Definitely. They have pale hair (light blonde for Blanche, silver for Noire), live isolated from humanity, and have special powers the main villain wants them for.
- Official Couple: It's implied one of them canonically won Raguna's heart, as Rune Factory Oceans confirms that the Iris twins' Rank 10 love event was canonically completed. Granted, this can be done without marrying Iris, but it's still notable as the only mention of any Rank 10 love events happening.
- One Steve Limit: Subverted and played straight, in an odd way. While there are two independent characters named Iris (they even split up on rare occasions), they are actually two manifestations of the same person. They remain two separate people until the 10LP event is cleared and and they are merged back together.
- Our Vampires Are Different: Word of God states that despite the similarities, the race she comes from are not called vampires.
- Rescue Romance: Twofold. Blanche rescues Raguna from Noire if she has more than 4 LP, and he then rescues Noire from Gelwein.
- Single-Minded Twins: Not really twins, but the only difference between the two is that one will occasionally mention drawing and one will occasionally use tarot cards. Otherwise all their dialogue is the same.
- Skippable Boss: Noire, if Blanche likes Raguna enough.
- Talking to Herself: Only in the American localization, in which both are voiced by Michelle Ruff.
- Terrible Artist: Blanche is supposedly a terrible artist, but we never get to see her abominations.Raguna: "That's a very cute chitter."Iris Blanche: "That's... an apple..."
