"Pretty Badass Tropes":
- Action Girl/Dark Action Girl: Obviously.
- Broken Win/Loss Streak: She had a long undefeated streak in Women of Honor, until Karen Q defeated her by countout. It was Goldberg-like, since the commentators would talk about how long she had been undefeated.
- Evil Mentor/Psycho Supporter: Had one in BJ Whitmer, leading to her becoming a Hanger-on for Decade.
- Finishing Move: A double-arm submission hold called The End of the Match.
- Girls with Moustaches: Speakeasy Spectacular, May 8, 2015, was built around the appearance of "The Bearded Lady." The scheduled main event was Olde Wrestling World Champion Matthew Cross defending the title against Clean of the Jollyville Jeepers. Before the match, Clean said that he was going to bring out the Bearded Lady. Out walked Heidi the Riveter (Heidi Lovelace) wearing a beard, drawing heel heat and chants of "phony." Cross won the match and Heidi and Clean started a heel beatdown, leading to Mary Elizabeth Monroe coming out wearing a beard, leading to a mixed-tag match, which Cross and Monroe won.
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: She was known for a time as "The Rated-G Superstar" and really did not want to curse.
- Pink Means Feminine: She wears a pink mouth guard.
- Red Baroness: "Pretty Badass," "The Gatekeeper"
- Tournament Arc: She and Bea Priestly won the Goddesses Of Stardom Tag League 2017.
