- Out-Gambitted: He had his Mega Lucario use Bone Rush to shroud the arena in sand dust and was planning on using his Aura manipulation ability to find Tikki within the dust covered battlefield.

- Chick Magnet: Described to be charming and handsome, it also helps that he's involved in the Laverre fashion shows to attract a lot of female attention. A digital image of him was enough to briefly cause Marinette heart trouble.
- Closest Thing We Got: Although he was picked by President Bourgeois as the new Laverre City Gym Leader because of his skills with Fairy-Types, it also because the President Bourgeois was in dire need for an immediate replacement when Clara was about to leave for her travels and Luka was at the right place at the right time when that happened.

- Shipper on Deck: He picks up on Marinette's interest in Adrien while sitting with her during the Couriway Showcase in Chapter 59. During Marinette and Kagami's battle while sitting with Adrien, he subtly urges him to pay more attention to Marinette as to slowly allow him to reciprocate her feelings.

She has aided the Kalos region in the past with her clairvoyance, protecting the people from imminent disasters when the stars allow her to foresee them. She also has a special relationship with Fu, guiding Marinette to find him in Terminus Cave after she defeats her in a Gym battle in Chapter 56.
- Adaptational Badass: She's a powerful Psychic-user in this story.
- Animal Motifs: Her cloak has Celebi body outlines.
- Anti-Magic: Xatu's Magic Bounce, which caught Marinette off guard when she had Leavanny attempt to restrain her with String Shot, only to discover the move reflected back on Leavanny. Marinette later uses this to her advantage to get Marianne to lower her guard, by having Leavanny use String Shot again and getting Togekiss to take the hit to be slowed down. This is to make her the fastest Pokémon while Trick Room is active.
- Badass Teacher: Marianne has Simon as her leading apprentice and several Psychics studying under her tutelage in the Anistar Gym to hone their abilities and deepen their bonds with their Pokémon. As Marinette experienced in her Gym battle, Marianne is a force to be reckoned with in both her psychic abilities and experience as a Gym Leader.
- Blow You Away: Owns a Xatu, a dual Psychic/Flying-type.
- Combat Clairvoyance: Both her Xatu and Starmie use Future Sight, combining their powers to set up a devastating and incoming attack that is assure to strike.
- Cool Old Lady: She is kind and grandmotherly to Marinette and her friends. Even her students greatly admire her.
- Crazy-Prepared: Xatu's and Starmie's movesets and Abilities complement each other well for nearly every situation, particularly Xatu's Trick Room and Starmie's Analytical.
- Discard and Draw: A combination of Xatu's Trick Room and Starmie's Analytical ability decreases Starmie's speed in exchange for a tremendous power boost to its Attack stats.
- Dual Boss: Marianne uses her Xatu and Starmie against Marinette, who in turn chose Leavanny and Togekiss.
- The Fatalist: Played with. Part of her theme during her battle against Marinette is how everything has a set path to their inevitable outcomes, ironically referencing in "Backwarder" her goal to change the past due to a misunderstanding between her and Fu. She even questions Marinette what her belief in fate is, asking if her victory was a result of her determination or that it was inevitable.
- Making a Splash: Her Starmie, which is part-Water-type.
- Mythology Gag: The phases of Marianne's Gym battle have Valerie's and Olympia's battles from the anime combined: the former using Trick Room as the final phase while the latter uses dual Future Sight.
- Never Mess with Granny: She can be assumed to be as old as Fu and is a tough Gym Leader.
- Psychic Powers: Has clairvoyance, a degree of levitation, and specializes in Psychic-types.
- Seers: What Marianne is in this story and fittingly owns a Xatu.
- Secret-Keeper: She knows Fu and the importance of his role. She also knows the true identities of Lady Ledian and Liepard Noir due to her clairvoyance.
- Stealth Mentor: Downplayed. Throughout Marinette's Gym battle, Marianne enforces the concepts of fate by berating Marinette's lack of preparedness whenever Marianne had the upper hand and saying how her loss was inevitable, but it only spurred Marinette to push forward despite the overwhelming odds.
- Stealth Pun: Her name in the show is meant to reference the Marianne symbol for French resistance during World War II. With her Psychic powers in this story it unintentionally serves as an homage to Marie Anne Lenormand, a famous fortune teller from the Napoleonic era.
- Support Party Member: Xatu's only offensive moves are Psychic and Future Sight. Her other moves are Telekinesis and Trick Room.
- What Could Have Been: Initially before Marianne's debut in the main show, the role of Anistar Gym Leader was given to Simon Grimault. Instead, he is Marianne's top apprentice, designated to succeed her once she decides to retire.
