Rose McIver provides examples of the following tropes:
- Fake American: Most of her roles have her play Americans or speak with an American accent despite being from New Zealand.
- Playing with Character Type: She usually plays women with tragic backstories, or who have gone through Break the Cutie in some way. Tinker Bell in Once Upon a Time is similar but recovers from her damage and reverts to The Cutie pretty quickly.
