* ItsAllAboutMe: Not that he means to be, but Statesman views Paragon City as revolving entirely around him. Less of a matter of demanding special treatment than simply thinking everything that goes wrong is his fault.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes He drives the rest of the Phalanx nuts with his constant nitpicking. Add to that he is a larger than life legend and he is both passively and actively undermining to everyone's self-worth.

to:

* MadArtistTheAtoner: After recovering from his schizophrenia induced crime spree, he decided to become a hero in-order to make-up for it.
* MadArtist: During his bouts as this he goes into museums stealing anything that strikes him as mad-genius to give it a better home, and defacing the rest for being uninspired.

* PaperThinDisguise: Justified in that she inherited the costume from her mother, and it is no longer used as a disguise. That strip of latex over her eyes isn't fooling anyone, especially since folks know she is Statesman's grand-daughter but it is in honor of her retired mom so folks give her pass.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBSOD: To say Lord Recluse shattered his resolve is to put it charitably. Cole's concept of "For the greater good" is completely dismantled as a justification to indulge in a complete power trip and he goes into a blind rage in the end.

* ChildSoldiers: WordOfGod confirms she helped serve in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, assuming she is in her 80s by 2006...even if she served only during the closing days of the war (which is unlikely considering she was paired with Statesman who was a veteran) this would mean she was between 12-16 at the time. Though Word of God has also stated that mutant rights didn't come into full swing until the 1980s, so the U.S. government likely [[LoopholeAbuse did not consider ''human'' rights]] [[FridgeHorror to apply to her]]... [[FreudianExcuse That would explain a few personalty quirks though]]...

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Countess Crey has attempted to bribe him to leak her Arachnos secrets or just outright poach him from Arachnos.

* SergeantRock: To call him "tough but fair" is underselling it, more accurately his is "homicidal but fair". He not only expects his troops to throw him off a cliff the second he stops proving himself worthy as their leader, he actively encourages it. Naturally he will do the same to any one of them if they make Arachnos look weak, foolish or even think about touching that VillainBall.
