* BerserkButton: The Chancellor.
* BigEgoHiddenDepths: Despite hostile first encounter, Draven ultimately respects Death, and vice versa. Quest reward-wise, Draven is comparatively the most generous person in the game by a fair margin. Its entirely possible that, given his reasons for being the Master of Blades, he is just putting up a JerkassFacade.

** InsultBackfire: Sometimes this happens when someone disapproves of Death's snarky comments (especially in the book).



* TheFaceless: [[spoiler:Even when he takes off his mask in the ending of ''Darksiders II'', his face is never shown]]. It's possible to maneuver the camera in such a way to reveal that his in-game model does not have a face under the mask, just an empty hole.

** OnlyAFleshWound
** In several cutscenes, he displays the ability to use his Reaper Form regardless of whether or not the player has the energy for it, and in a number of times actually flies while transformed, something impossible during gameplay.
** Despite the creative team saying that Death doesn't block because he's arrogant to the point where he believes that nobody can hit him, he can be seen blocking in the cutscenes.
* GrimReaper: Looks even more like the traditional version in his [[SuperMode Reaper Form]].
** Bonus points as he actually is the Grim Reaper.
* HeroicNeutral: Has shades of this. All he really cares about is keeping his family safe and doing his job of maintaining the Balance. Then events gets War involved, and the Balance part goes out the window- if it gets his brother cleared, he'll end the war himself.
* HowlOfSorrow: After he slaughtered the nephilim.
** SkywardScream
* HyperspaceArsenal: Not as much as War with the weapons he directly equips, but he is still capable of pulling out weapons bigger than he is mid combo.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: His justification for killing his people, though there are some subtle hints that he sometimes has trouble believing that.
* IHaveManyNames: Including [[TheGrimReaper the Reaper]], Pale Rider, Kinslayer, and Executioner among others.

* IRegretNothing: See IDidWhatIHadToDo. When he's confronted about his guilt over betraying and wiping out his people, those exact words are his response.
** BlatantLies: Apparently, a lot of the other characters can see that he does have remorse over said betrayal.

** Partially Subverted: [[spoiler:The final sacrifice which kills him to save humanity is what allows the return of War to Earth proving to the Council that he didnt start the Apocalypse.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Makes himself ''out'' to be this as a JerkassFacade.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Is ''actually'' this. While snide, he's still an honorable warrior, he shows concern for those under him and who he aids (his brothers and the Makers/Hellguard, respectively), he offers his aid to the Makers in overcoming corruption almost unconditionally, and Uriel even admits he has honor when he does the same for her. Oh, and he stood up for us when his kinsmen wanted to slaughter us and take our world over. That was nice of him. As Karn puts it:

* LightningBruiser: Subverted; in contrast to War, Death's a GlassCannon. However, with the appropriate gear, he can be made very resilient.
* HandCannon: Redemption, which unlike Mercy can actually deal some damage to enemies.
* MagikarpPower: His offensive Necromancer tree abilities, mainly Exhume and Murder, start off less powerful than his Harbinger tree abilities, but catch up later in the game once the upgrades for them start getting purchased, since the damage for them comes from inflicting repeated hits, therefor increasing damage and effects of them will start to pay off later.
