* BlueOni: The Red to Tyrael's Blue. The two are friends and share something of a temperament, but Imperius is HotBlooded and quick to judge, while Tyrael is more reserved, as a result of CharacterDevelopment during the ancient Sin War.

* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Of the Angiris Council (especially in the order of introduction given in ''Wrath''), he is the only one with a helmet instead of a hood, wings of fire instead of light, and [[OddNameOut a name that ends in an "s" instead of "l".]] The other angels have names following Judaism-Christianity naming convention. The -el at the end of the name comes from Hebrew and signifies devotion to Elohim (God), hence why the biblical archangels have names like Michael, Gabriel, Uriel, Raphael, etc. Interestingly, the last two letters of Imperius' name, -us, is commonly observed in Greco-Roman names, possibility hinting that Imperius has a different origin from the other archangels.

* CreepyGood: Back when he was the Archangel of Wisdom, Malthael was benevolent but melancholic and even unnerving to some.



* InsaneTrollLogic: In his journals, which chronicle his descent into madness, it turns out that the first thing he noticed about humans is that they have short lifespans. He then concluded that creatures that don't live very long shouldn't have the power to choose between good and evil.

* {{Irony}}: He claims that Angels and Demons don't choose between Good and Evil. And yet, Izual joined Diablo willingly, rendering Malthael's argument invalid. Furthermore, considering that Malthael [[spoiler:absorbed Diablo's essence for a power-up during the fight with the Nephalem]], it's safe to say that he knew exactly what he was getting himself into, and did so anyway.

of Malthael's angels. She is Tyrael who advises the first Death Maiden you encounter in ''Reaper of Souls'', which you have heroes to kill to destroy the Soul Crucible she was creating and establish the Survivors' Enclave.not progress further until they smash Mephisto's Soulstone.


Added DiffLines:

* AstralProjection: Supplementary material states he wasn't physically present in hell. Which may explain why he doesn't help you beyond giving advice and why the demons don't attack him.

* BatmanGambit: His first plan to get rid of humanity was to let the Black Soulstone corrupt the Angels and cause them to destroy Sanctuary. He only resorted to open acting after Tyrael unknowingly ruined it.



* DemonicPossesion: He posses a prisoner to get past a barrier Tyrael creates denying non mortals entry to the Black Soulstone's hiding place.



* DrivenByEnvy: It is heaviloy implied in the prequel novels that one of his motivations is jealously at the Nephalem for defeating Diablo while he did not.



* EtTuBrute: The other angels, especially Tyrael and Imperius are horrified by his descent into evil, let alone his callous murder of fellow angels.



* GeneralRipper: He does not care who has to die if it means achieving his goals, be that innocent humans, or his fellow angels.



* HeWhoFightsMonsters: He initially has good, if insane intentions, but he slowly turns into a monster no better than the demons.



* Hypocrite: Has the courage to equate humans with demons, but he has no problem consuming the souls of demons to give him more power.



* PetTheDog: When [[spoiler: he defeated Tyrael while stealing the Black Soulstone, he had the perfect chance to kill him. But while his fellow angel was now a mortal, he didn't have the same demonic taint as most humans, so Malthael didn't consider Tyrael an enemy, and chose to spare him.]]

* TheComputerIsALyingBastard: One of his in-town lines is "Want to find more gold out there? Bring a thief with you next time!" Yet hiring him does not raise your Gold Find, nor does he have any skills that will increase it.

* TheMedic: Can be tweaked into one; two of his skills heal a good fraction of your Life and another raises health regeneration for both of you.

* SupportPartyMember: They're certainly not going to be doing wonders in the damage department, so it's generally best to give them skills and equipment that can either augment you or inflict status effects on enemies.
