Tropes associated with her roles include:

  • Actor Allusion:
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Elena and Adora are both kind and compassionate people, but they're not afraid to stand their ground against jerks, villains, and essentially anyone who threatens the safety of the world or their loved ones.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: She-Ra has this motif though Elena gains this much later on.
  • Red Is Heroic: Both her characters Elena and Adora have red in their ensembles; Elena wears a red dress while Adora typically wears a red jacket and a red dress in formal occasions.
  • Star-Making Role: Sofia, Princess Elena of Avalor, and Adora/She-Ra.
  • Tomboy Princess: Elena and Adora/She-Ra. Both are princesses (though Adora is a technicality) who just want to do what they want to do in spite (or sometimes in explicit disregard) for gender stereotypes. In the more accepting universe of She-Ra, nobody really bats an eye at this, and in Elena of Avalor, Elena sometimes has to pick fights for women to do stereotypically masculine activities like sword-fighting.
