* BurnTheWitch: While they're never shown actually burning anyone at the stake, its heavily implied and they love to reference the trope by name.



* HeelFaceTurn: In ''VideoGame/Dishonored2''. Sort of. They're still {{Knight Templar}}s who are hostile to the protagonist for most of the game, but they've stamped out most of their CorruptChurch tendencies from the first game, are viciously opposed to the BigBad, and can even outright ally with the player under the right circumstances.
* KnightTemplar: What they are designed to be more or less.

to:

* HeelFaceTurn: GreyAndGreyMorality: Their war with the Howlers in Karnaca. The Overseers are a bunch of ruthless witchhunters, while the Howlers are a murderous street gang, but they're both trying to make the city a better place in the face of Duke Abel's debased tyranny. Most of the conflict simply stems from the leader of the Howlers using an arcane artifact.
* HazyFeelTurn:

* KnightTemplar: What they are designed They react violently to any trace of void worship or witchcraft. In ''Dishonored 2'', one of the Serkonan Overseers can be more or less.heard sharing a story about how he killed a little girl for having simply ''found'' a shrine to the Outsider somewhere.


Added DiffLines:

* PaletteSwap: It seems that the Overseers of each nation in the Empire wear different uniforms, with distinct masks:
** The Overseers of Gristol in ''Dishonored'' wear grey jackets with fluted sleeves, and wear gilded masks in the shape of a snarling human face.
** The Overseers of Serkonos in ''Dishonored II'' wear relatively light white and black clothing to compensate for the region's heat, with thick workman's gloves and utilitarian black masks that lack armor around the mouth.
** While not seen, Emily indicates that the Overseers of Morley wear masks similar to the [[EyelessFace dentistry mannequin heads]] occasionally found in ''Dishonored II''.


Added DiffLines:

* TheWorfEffect: [[spoiler:Towards the end of ''Dishonored 2'', you learn that a fairly large army of Gristol Overseers, supported by music boxes and wolfhounds, attempted to storm Dunwall Tower to depose Delilah and her coven. By the time you get there, they've been slaughtered to a man, because they hadn't anticipated the presence of Jindosh's MechaMooks, who function without the aid of void magic.]]

* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler:At the end of a Low Chaos playthrough, Havelock poisons Treavor and Martin before Corvo arrives at the top of the lighthouse.]]



* ColdBloodedTorture: If Corvo allows it, he'll use plague rats on [[spoiler:Sokolov]] to get the man to talk. Havelock also alludes to having tortured people in the past, as he mentions that a board and a bucket of seawater are all he needs to break a man.

* ArtAttacker: She can use her statues to detect intruders. In an emergency, she [[MesACrowd can turn them into copies of herself]]. [[spoiler:She also has the ability to use paintings to control people. It's implied that this is how she managed to completely enthrall Timsh. She plans on using a more powerful version of this ability to possess Emily.]]

** In the second game, the statues return as a long-distance communication system she uses to keep tabs on her lieutenants, and her power over paintings has grown to the point where [[spoiler:she can use them to alter reality, with her ultimate plan being [[InTheirOwnImage to completely rewrite the universe into a paradise for herself]].
]]



* InTheirOwnImage: [[spoiler:Her ultimate plan in ''Dishonored 2'' is to use an amplified version of her painting-based witchcraft to re-write reality into an egocentric paradise, where she's adored by everyone and rules the world without question. The huge painting she crafts for this purpose is even titled "[[ItsAllAboutMe The World As It Should Be]]"]]



* LivingStatue: She uses these to spy on people in the City and taunt Daud, as well as act as sentries for her base in Brigmore Manor.

* SpookyPainting: She's a gifted painter who seems to have a preference for portraits from life - like Sokolov, to whom she was actually an apprentice - but unlike his meticulous and realistic style, her paintings are garishly colorful, borderline-abstract, and unsettling to look at. [[spoiler:It turns out this is how she uses her powers; whoever or whatever she paints, she can control to some extent.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** Thanks to New Game +, Emily can now use Bend Time, provided the save file you base the New Game + on was with Corvo and had unlocked at least one level of Bend Time.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperiorSuccessor: Potentially. In Dishonored, Corvo had to take the Outsider's mark and Blink, and while a run without using the power is possible, it's heavily implied that Corvo made use of the Outsider's gifts in canon. Which means that an Emily who rejects the Outsider can match Corvo's feats without the powers or several years of experience that Corvo had.

* JadeColoredGlasses: Daud has been wearing them for a long, long time, so even when a through crosses his mind that his crimes might be catching up with him, he quickly dismisses it.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Visually he looks a fair bit like one of the Endless from Creator/NeilGaiman's ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', especially Morpheus/Dream. He shares the somber, sardonic and slightly EmoTeen characteristic of Morpheus and likewise has the same sense of BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor and HumansAreMorons sentiment.

The ''Franchise/DishonoredSeries'' (''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored 2}}'', ''VideoGame/DishonoredDeathOfTheOutsider'') are very story-heavy games, and with that comes a large cast of characters, [[CastOfSnowflakes each interesting in both personality and visual design]]. For characters who first appear in ''Videogame/{{Dishonored 2}}'', see [[Characters/{{Dishonored 2}} here]]
