Liz Gillies's work exhibits the following tropes:
- Contralto of Danger: Her low, husky voice serves her well for her snarky roles.
- Covered in Gunge: Happened to her on an episode of Figure It Out, as it happens to everyone; unlike some, she didn't cower in her seat but took off her hat, shook her hair in the shower of gunge like a model in a shampoo commercial, stood up and put up her hands in a victory symbol, and actually dumped an extra double handful of it on her head at the end, to the appreciation of the fans.
- Deadpan Snarker: To a delightful degree in real life. To a terrifying degree as Jade.
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: As Jade, until she got a tan over the summer and dyed her hair black to better complement it.
- Gag Boobs: Many jokes have been made about her being well-endowed.
- Ms. Fanservice: Just look at the picture.
- Singing Voice Dissonance: Her singing voice sounds very different from her speaking voice, but it still sounds amazing.
- Typecasting: Her two biggest roles were mean characters. With Lucy, it went to the point of the Alpha Bitch.
- She said in the above linked interview that she's always the mean character.
- Her role as Callie Ross in Killing Daddy doesn't help matters, as she plays a character who is hell-bent on killing her own father and denies that she's crazy.
- She says in this interview that it's due to her mean face.
- Playing Against Type: This music video. Also, her appearances on Big Time Rush and White Collar.
- Woman of a Thousand Voices: The number of voices she does on Victorious alone is quite impressive; she did a very convincing "man voice" during one of Sikowitz's drive-by acting exercises, and of course there's Jade's impression of Tori, which is actually Liz's impression of Judy Garland. In fact, in "Locked Up", during a scene in which Tori attempted to imitate Jade's mocking of her, Elizabeth Gillies actually dubbed that line. In other words, Liz voiced Victoria Justice attempting to imitate Liz's imitation of Judy Garland. In the episode "Opposite Date", she did a spot-on impression of Cat, including her distinct laugh. In addition, she played Daphne on Winx Club, in a voice that sounds totally different from her normal voice.
- The voice she used when she and Ariana prank called Avan Jogia in this video.
