Trope Examples

  • All Girls Like Ponies: Darian/Adrian and her friend Cheyenne.
  • Ax Crazy: Darian maniacally dices lemons with a knife after seeing Nick and Amy in bed together, and in the film's climax, attacks Nick and her father with a crowbar.
  • Coy Girlish Flirt Pose: Darian does this to Nick in his room after they meet.
  • Dub Name Change: Darian's name was changed to Adrian for the DVD release. This was due to Alan Shapiro getting sued by a woman with the same name as the character, whom he based the script on. However, it stays Darian on the VHS and Laserdisc releases. More info here.
  • Ephebophile: Inverted.
  • Everything's Worse with Bees: Adrian does this to Amy when she's processing her pictures in the darkroom shed.
  • Fille Fatale
  • Frame-Up: After Nick continues to refuse Darian's advances, she frames him for raping her. This leads him to get arrested and fired from his job.
  • Harassing Phone Call: Darian phoned Nick so much there are almost 100 messages on his answering machine.
  • Haven't You Seen X Before?:

  Adrian 'Darian' Forrester: What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a Valiant before?
