  • Alpha Bitch
  • Ambiguously Bi: She's crushed on several guys, but also has tons of Les Yay with Sonny.
  • Attention Whore: Tawni's big weakness is if someone else, like Sonny, gets more attention or better criticism by the media. It can really eat away at her and can, in turn, cause her to do something drastic to herself.

  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Disappeared Dad: Despite her mother being mentioned, has not had her father mentioned.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: In the episode 'Poll'd Apart' Tawni shaves her head, symbolically. She actually just wears a bald cap. Also serves as a Shout-Out to Britney Spears during her own perceived breakdown.
  • Expy: Several people have spotted similarities between Tawni Hart and Blair Warner.
  • The Fashionista
  • Five Temperament Ensemble: Choleric (Shares this with Chad.)
  • Hair Flip: Does that a lot, in "You've Got Fan Mail" she does it when mentioning her hair having more glow than Sonny's and before picking up a call from her.
  • Hates Being Touched: Her reaction to Sonny's hugging in the beginning of the series.
  • I Have This Friend...: In the episode "Sonny With A Chance of Dating", Tawni is jealous of Sonny dating a Mackenzie Falls co-star and claims that her best friend once dated him and ended up wearing poliester pants. Sonny correctly deduces that Tawni is that her "friend".
  • It's All About Me: She is a self-absorbed, diva-type teenager who wants to have the spotlight to herself.
  • Jerkass: Tawni is egocentric and spends a majority of her time thinking about how she looks.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • The Lancer
  • The Rival
  • Pet the Dog: In Sonny With a Choice, Tawni treated Sonny like her best friend and comforted her after her break up with Chad.

    • In Sonny So Far when Gilroy Smith tries to show the audience Sonny and Chad's private conversation, Tawni closes the TV because she remembered all that Sonny did for her and didn't want her to be embarrassed on tv.
  • Proud Beauty: Extremely, she's always boasting about how beautiful she is. Then again, few would disagree.
  • Smarter Than You Look: She has shown being very perceptive, seeing quite easily that Chad Dylan Cooper had "other motives" for wanting to stop Sonny and James' date, among other things.
  • Smug Smiler: A lot of her smiles, especially those to Sonny, are cocky and condescending.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": It's Tawni not Tawny.
