* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Tends to work in his favor. Dormammu tends to be more of a threat if Strange has back up and more likely to screw up if Strange is on his own.
* CurbStompBattle: Has dished out this to Doctor Strange and entire superhero teams.



* DealWithTheDevil: Frequently makes these. They tend to end very poorly for his client if they aren't savvy enough to anticipate him screwing them over.



* EvilerThanThou: Pulls this on Umar whenever he takes the Dark Dimension back from her. He also once pulled it on Mephisto.



* HeroKiller: He's managed to actually kill Strange in the past, but the [[DeathIsCheap deaths never stick]].

to:

* HeroKiller: He's managed to Strange considers Dormammu his most dangerous enemy, and the Dreaded One has nearly taken over our universe. Bonus points for when Dormammu once went into the future and actually kill Strange succeeded in the past, but the [[DeathIsCheap deaths never stick]].killing that timeline's Doctor Strange.



* IHaveManyNames: The Dread One, The Black One, The Great Enigma, Eater of Souls, Lord of Darkness, Lord of the Dark Dimension

* JokerImmunity: Dormammu has seemingly been destroyed more than once, but it never sticks. Even scattering his essence across different dimensions isn't enough to get rid of him.

* ComicBookFantasyCasting: In TheEighties looked suspiciously like Music/DavidBowie circa [[TheRiseAndFallOfZiggyStardustAndTheSpidersFromMars Ziggy Stardust]], whereas in TheNineties she looked like [[ElviraMistressOfTheDark Elvira]].

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Dormammu is a Faltinian, from a dimension where matter does not naturally exist, and exotic energies are the equivalent of money and status symbols. He and his "co-progeny" Umar were shunned for "lusting after matter," as repulsive to Faltinians as, say, necrophilia, pedophilia and bestiality combined would be to humans. Faltinians also reproduce by fission, and find the very concepts of copulation and sexual reproduction unspeakably obscene. Dormammu [[EvenEvilHasStandards shares this attitude]] to a degree, while Umar definitely does not (she's had a child, and has abducted the Hulk at least twice for what amounted to a booty call).

* BlueandOrangeMorality: Umar and Dormammu are Faltinians, from a dimension where matter does not naturally exist, and exotic energies are the equivalent of money and status symbols. They were shunned for "lusting after matter," and killed their sire by turning him/her/it into cold, dead matter - the worst crime of which their people could even conceive. Umar's forays into sex, sexual reproduction, seduction and hedonism place her further along this scale than Dormammu, who found the words "mother," "father," and "grandfather" almost unspeakably obscene (he was pretending to be another Faltinian at the time, but he notably avoids mentioning Umar's daughter as such even as himself).

* AxCrazy: Itís implied that the pain and suffering apparently required to fuel his powers are not so much necessary than just him being a vicious sadist.
