** The Hunter is also probably the only character that Death ''doesn't'' snark at. In fact, he's rather respectful towards him.

** The comics is this to humanity in general. Importance to the Balance aside, the only reason Death accepts Abaddon's requests for hunting down the "demon" that killed his followers is because of the human lives that are at stake. Furthermore, he comments on how far they've come and the look in his eyes when he realizes that they blame him for the Corruption that had plagued the village can be best described as sadness. He also declares that he will save them and he deliberately minimizes casualties when hunting down Makhala; he knocks most of them out of his way.

* GoodIsNotNice: They're the protectors of the BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil and yet, they're feared and hated by many... [[OneManArmy with good reason]].

to:

* GoodIsNotNice: One would think that as the protagonists, they'd be a lot more heroic. Judging from their reputations and, at the very least, [[HairTriggerTemper War]] and [[DeadpanSnarker Death]]'s personalities, they are anything but that.
* GoodIsNotSoft:

** OhCrap: A common reaction to seeing any of the Four when they enter the scene, due to the above trope (coupled with GoodIsNotNice).

to:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: They resort to some pretty brutal methods when it comes to protecting the Balance, such as genocide.



* GeniusBruiser: While it may seem like he only uses brute force, War is actually confirmed to be more skilled in battlefield tactics than Death (something which the latter openly admits in the novel). His [[spoiler:ThanatosGambit]] in the first game definitely shows that just because he uses brute force, it certainly doesn't mean he's careless.

* HandicappedBadass: You see that absurdly large left arm of his? That's a prosthetic, courtesy of Death chopping off his arm.
* HonorBeforeReason: Death even calls him the most honor-bound of the Four Horsemen.

arm for being insubordinate.
* HonorBeforeReason: War hates resorting to underhanded means to win a fight and prefers to go at it as honestly as possible. Death even calls him the most honor-bound of the Four Horsemen.



* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: His killing of the Destroyer's Chosen is brutal by the nature of him tearing their hearts out, but the Griever he goes an extra mile with by killing it by bashing its face in with a flat bed train car.

* EvilPlan: Abaddon [[spoiler:planned on breaking six of the Seven Seals (except for the seventh to prevent the Horsemen from interfering and to truly prevent the End War from happening), so that when Hell's generals would appear, he would have them assassinated before anything cataclysmic would happen. When the Council would investigate, the blame would fall on Hell, therefore, automatically giving victory to Heaven. To hide evidence of this act, he ordered the Maker Ulthane to duplicate six of the Seals so they would appear intact. Unfortunately, the Council already knew of this conspiracy. Worse, not only was Abaddon killed in battle, but he was dragged into Hell where an entity, possibly Lilith, stated he would have nowhere left to run once Heaven and the Council got their hands on him]]. Subverted as [[spoiler:humanity's destruction wasn't planned -- in fact, he was trying to avoid an actual war -- but considering his plan failed, it ended up happening anyway.]]

* DeathRidesASkateboard: He can kill titantic monsters, wears a skull mask, has long ''[[Film/TheCrow The Crow]]''-esq black hair and has a dry sense of humor to top it all off. Safe to say, Death is pretty awesome.

* ActionSurvivor: Yep. Despite his failings, he's a paragon of humanity's potential, despite how most supernatural beings dismiss humans as being weak.

* {{Badass}}: Almost single handedly fights a war against the armies of The Destroyer, and does more damage to them then the entire Hellgaurd, even with the constructs the Makers sent to help them.

* {{Badass}}: His name is Death, and that happens to pretty much anybody who tries to fight him.



* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler: After falling to TheCorruption, his rampage alone made the Ivory Citadel more vulnerable to corruption. Also actually manages to land some hits on Death during cutscenes]]



* {{Badass}}: Managed to survive on his own when everyone else fell to corruption.



* {{Badass}}: Not even getting crushed by the [[HumongousMecha Guardian]]'s hammer kills him!
** BadassGrandpa: The oldest of the Makers, by the look of his title and appearance.

* {{Badass}}: He probably doesn't think of himself as one, but if a guy like him could survive in the apocalypse, who knows how many survivors may have endured? This guy managed to survive with just a sniper rifle, his own survival skills, and a makeshift prosthesis.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Fights War three times and survives.
* {{Badass}}: She spent a century battling endless waves of demons, with no hope of escape, and she's still kicking. Also, she managed to keep a sizable portion of the Hellguard alive and continuing to battle Hells forces.
