** [[spoiler: And THEN, when it is revealed that he actually did not die at all, everyone in the room observing the scene goes [[OhCrap dead silent]], including the usually wise-cracking Kill-Vearn, who promptly switches to a no-nonsense mindset, going after him relentlessly, undergoing EvilMakeOver to drive the point home that he is taking him very seriously after getting his smiling mask broken, and pulling every nasty trick in the book to try to get rid of him for good, because he is THAT [[SpannerInTheWorks unpredictable]]. THIS is how feared he is by Vearn and his associates, as a mere human.]]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** He recognizes his enemies as serious threats and is always cautious, unless he is absolutely sure of his superiority.
** He [[PragmaticVillainy allows minions to stay around as long as they prove trustworthy]], rather than kill them after they fail, which would cause him to lose useful pawns.
** It should be said that he still allows even known rebels, such as [[spoiler: Hadler after he decided to betray him]] to stick around if he can as a result use them to weed out his enemies.
** At the end, he reveals that [[spoiler: his whole fight with the heroes was a distraction to prevent them from attacking the devices that would destroy the Human Realm. He counted on the fact that the heroes would have gathered all their strongest fighters to storm the FinalDungeon (which was very far from the aforementioned doomsday devices), and he was right.]]
** He also figured quite correctly Killvearn's true plans from the get-go, but still took the bet.



* OrcusOnHisThrone: Though unlike most examples, he [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy he's able to maintain his plans]] and [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking is able to show why he can sit on the throne without worry]].

* HonorBeforeReason: Hyunkel falls into this occasionally. He insists on taking out Baran's subordinates in a fair fight and uses a spear even though he's much more effective with a sword.d




to:

* WouldntHitAGirl: His PetTheDog moment before his HeelFaceTurn has him treat Maamu respectfully.



* ScaryShinyGlasses: Occasionally when he's about to get serious.



* BunnyEarsLawyer: Almost as much as Avan.
* CastFromHitpoints: Some of the spells he used when he was younger. It's taken a dramatic toll on his health as he grew older.




to:

* PaperThinDisguise: Covered himself with a bedsheet as a disguise. No one is fooled.

* AllLovingHero: As much as Dai. She's the first person to feel compassion for Hyunkel (and other villains), she delivers multiple CoolDownHugs. There's a reason she's the soul of charity.

* BookDumb: There's a small throwaway gag where Dai has trouble reading and has to ask someone else to do it.



* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Manages to determine the weaknesses in Vearn's attacks by observing them a few times. He can also copy his enemies attacks after seeing them in action.



* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Even after overcoming his inferiority complex, he basically keeps viewing himself as the weakest and most disposable member of the main party.

to:

* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Even after overcoming his inferiority complex, he basically keeps viewing himself as the weakest and most disposable member of the main party. It causes problems as he constantly pulls dangerous suicidal stunts.



* TeamDad: If the name wasn't a giveaway. Pop acts as the voice of reason and caution for his more reckless and HotBlooded team members. He also pulls a lot of PapaWolf moments, protective as he is of Maamu, Dai and Merle.

* BareFistedMonk: After TakingALevelInBadass.

* TookALevelInBadass: Went from being TheGunslinger to a full one ActionGirl.

* BadassPrincess: Is a competent ruler of Papunika ([[AChildShallLeadThem despite being a teenager]]) and a powerful sage.



* TheFace: As a very charismatic leader(she's basically a mini-Flora), Leona serves as this in several situations.

to:

** Though with her father and mother dead (her father died in the monster invasion and her mother years before), she should be the Queen of Papunika.

* GenkiGirl: Probably the most positive and upbeat of the five disciples. She has to be, since her role is TheHeart and TheFace of the group.

* MasterSwordsman: Lon Berk mentions that Hyunkel would be his equal with a sword and that [[IAmNotLeftHanded he's hobbling himself with a spear.]]



* ThePaladin: Fights for good? Check. Swordmanship skills? Check. Use of defensive White Magic? Check! Aban's a more eccentric version but fits the archtype nevertheless.

** And afterwards, when Hadler screwed up killing Avan's disciples several times, and commiting a major screwup [[spoiler: with his plotting to keep his position, and not disclosing vital information such as Dai being a Dragon Knight, eventually leading to Baran's (the strongest General by far) betrayal and potential threat towards Vearn]], he is on the verge of a YouHaveFailedMe scenario, yet [[Vearn PragmaticVillainy]] still commends Hadler's achievement in killing Avan, considering it worthy enough that he grants him a final chance and an eventual pardon. For Hadler, defeating Avan was the gift that kept on giving.
