** [[spoiler:In the first phase of his boss battle his leaping attacks, flips and animalistic movement is highly reminiscent of[[Manga/{{Berserk}} Guts in the Berserker Armor]], while in the second phase of the fight he uses an Auto Crossbow and a BFS in one hand with his fighting style and silhouette resembling Guts as the Black Swordsman. The only way he could resemble Guts even more is if he had an ArmCannon.]]

* CousinOliver: Up until the release of this DLC, it was established that Gwyn only had four children: [[{{Unperson}} the stature-stripped Nameless King]], Gwynevere the Princess of Sunlight, the Darkmoon god Dark Sun Gwyndolin, and Company Captain Yorshka. His fifth child, Filianore, seemingly comes out of left field.

* ZombiePukeAttack: Like the Corvians, except they can spray ''maggots'', causing Blood Loss.

* ZombiePukeAttack: Like the Corvians, except they can spray ''maggots'', causing Blood Loss. And it comes out of their ''eyes''.



* TimeAbyss: The Ringed Knights you fight in the city are the exact same ones who fought alongside Gwyn in the war against the dragons.

to:

* SoleSurvivor: [[spoiler:Aside from yourself, Gael, and Shira, there is exactly one survivor of the Ringed City at the end of the Age of Fire, and its the Ringed Knight wielding the Paired Greatswords that served as the vanguard to the Church of Filianore.]]
* TimeAbyss: The Ringed Knights you fight in the city are the exact same ones who fought alongside Gwyn in the war against the dragons. [[spoiler:One of them, wielding the Paired Ringed Knight Greatswords, lasted even longer than that, and can be found wandering the ashen desert that serves as Gael's boss arena.]]

* FallenHero: He was once a noble dragon who fought the Abyss for centuries, but much like Knight Artorias, it eventually corrupted him.

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Midir was raised to battle the Abyss, but has been tainted by it after all the long years. Though he hasn't turned evil/psychotic yet and continues to carry out his mission, Shira requests you to put him down before he loses himself completely.

Added DiffLines:

* ClimaxBoss: [[spoiler:After consuming the blood of the Pygmy Lords, Gael become a living personification of ''the Dark Soul itself,'' meaning that from a thematic perspective at least he has as much claim to the title of the ultimate, final boss of the series as the Soul of Cinder (a living personification of the First Flame) does. Unfortunately, being only part of the ''Ringed City'' DLC, he cannot serve as the actual end boss.]]

to:

* WorfHadTheFlu: '''Yes''', it's implied that you're actually fighting Midir when he's not even at the pinnacle of all of his strength. One can easily infer that TheCorruption of the Abyss, in addition to maddening him, is also sapping away what strength he has left. The fact that he's considered one of the most difficult bosses of the game, if not ''the'' most difficult, demonstrates just what kind of power the Everlasting Dragons had.

Added DiffLines:

* OutsideTheBoxTactic: Midir is an Archdragon notorious for being a DamageSpongeBoss. It's hard hitting, humongous, and its breath of fire can turn into a laser beam that can sweep through half of his lair. You can spend hours pelting its legs with a sword, shooting its head with a Greatbow, or, using the Pestilent Mercury sorcery to cast a dense mist that can NoSell the dragon's hard shell and smoke it to death effortlessly with percentage-based damage. Due to Midir's huge size, so long as it doesn't actually start flying, part of his body is practically guranteed to be within the spell's area of effect. Of all the things available, the best and easiest dragonslaying tool is not a [[{{BFS}} huge sword]], not a [[GreatBow huge bow]], but a ''[[DeadlyGas puny mist]]'', no less.

* HiddenDepths: Gael doesn't even really ''talk'' that much to the Ashen One, except when he pulls you into the Painted World of Ariandel (and if you count his various messages throughout the Ringed City). So a lot of who he is and what he wants is left nearly completely in the dark, unless you take a look at item descriptions and put two and two together from the dialogue of other characters. By the end of ''The Ringed City'', [[spoiler:you'll find out that Gael intends to create a new Painted World, but is such a Determinator about it that he's willing to destroy the last city where life can truly thrive in any real fashion in a dying--if not dead--world.]]



* ImDyingPleaseTakeMyMacGuffin: A darker example than most (no pun intended). [[spoiler:Consuming the Dark Soul from the Pygmy Lords in a fit of insanity, Gael then attacks the Ashen One with the intent to claim their Dark Soul. When Gael is defeated in the ensuing battle, it's revealed that he intended to use the blood of the Pygmy Lords as pigment for his Painted World, but when he found out that the Lords have lived for so long their blood ''dried'', he decided to ''eat'' the Dark Soul right out of them. Once he dies, it's all up to the Ashen One to complete Gael's mission and get the Blood of the Dark Soul back to the Painter.]]
* JustEatHim: [[spoiler: Gael discovers that the Pygmy Lords have lived for so long their blood has dried up. This means that everything he did in the name of creating a new Painted World was all for nothing. Of course, he ends up going completely mad from this revelation and decides he'll just ''eat'' the souls right out of their bodies. '''It works'''.]]



* SanitySlippage: The implication that he's lived for [[TimeAbyss a long,]] ''[[TimeAbyss loooooooong]]'' [[TimeAbyss time]], coupled with his decrepit demeanor, one can very well come to the conclusion that Gael's experiences have taken a toll on his sanity. [[spoiler:A toll that comes to a breaking point in ''The Ringed City'', where Gael discovers that the Pygmy Lords' blood has dried up completely, essentially undoing ''all'' of his efforts to create a new Painted World--until he [[TakeAThirdOption decides to just eat them]].]]



* TimeAbyss: Gael's been around since when the old gods were still in their prime. It's worth noting that by the time of ''Dark Souls III'', the gods are considered a mere relic of the past; in ''Dark Souls I'', the gods were pretty much on the verge of dying out. Which means Gael's been around for thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of years.

Which means Gael's been around for thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of years. That is, if the TimeyWimeyBall nature of the world had nothing to do with it.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: [[spoiler:He's not trying to necessarily create a Utopia, but he is trying to create a new Painted World to help sustain life in some fashion--especially when it comes to creatures abhorred for being unnatural or wretched. He eventually becomes so maddened over the course of his journey, however, that he ends up a cannibalistic manifestation of Dark, as he feasts on the Dark Soul itself from its progenitors, the Pygmy Lords.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Gael is implied to be aware of how unsalvageable the Age of Fire is, and the various atrocities he commits to create a new Painted World in ''The Ringed City'' can be interpreted as an old and broken man doing everything he can to sustain life through an entirely new Painted World.]]
