* MostDefinitelyNotAVillain: Lord of the planet ''Perilous'', is empowered by evil energy, and looks like something that would give [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft]] nightmares. [[SarcasmMode Must be a good guy.]]
** To elaborate, Nebulos contacts Strange and gives him the Staff of Polar Power in order to absorb the evil energy from Baron Mordo. Not until it's too late does Strange find it suspicious that this mysterious entity would give him such a powerful item or wonder why it might want evil energy to begin with.

* AlwaysABiggerFish: He's by a pretty solid margin the biggest fish we actually get to ''see'', and regularly plays this trope against assorted cosmic horrors who, while ludicrously powerful, are never as ludicrously powerful as ''him''. In absolute terms, he's the second biggest fish around: for all his might, he's still small and humble compared to [[{{God}} the One Above All]].

The Living Tribunal is the supreme authority of the multiverse and one of its most powerful entities, second only to The One Above All. In general it only enters the field when all other forces have been outmatched.

** GoodIsNotNice: Perfectly willing to snuff out sentient lifeforms in the trillions if it would prevent the entire Multiverse from imploding.
* GodzillaThreshold: If he shows up, you know this has officially been crossed at the Multiversal level.
** He has very particular rules on when he will cross said threshold, however. For instance, during ComicBook/TheInfinityGauntlet, the greater cosmic forces of the universe, such as Infinity, were refused help from the Tribunal. According to the Tribunal, as powerful as Thanos was, it was of no concern to him, as a) even with all that power, Thanos' influence would not extend to rest of the Multiverse, and b) Thanos gained the power of the Gems through his own strength, so, by the Tribunal's standards, no real crime was committed. This is after Thanos killed half the universe, too.

* MultipleHeadCase: Has multiple heads.He has three heads, or technically a single head with three faces.



* TheWorfEffect: Despite his phenomenal power, he actually has losses under his belt: One, against the Protege, was due to his own power being used against him, and others were due to weaker Manifestation Bodies, or not part of continuity, but during the Avengers story "Time Runs Out", the real Tribunal was actually killed by the Beyonders.

* BigGood
** Of a sort. Agamotto, at least, has attempted some pretty terrible atrocities out of greater necessity, while merely observed others he could have prevented out of boredom and loneliness. Unlike some of the other entities he butts heads with, though, he's not the vengeful sort and is graceful in defeat.

* TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks: He was originally made in the 1940's, and like many heroes from that time, fell into obscurity after the creation of the comics code.

* TheDreaded: This thing [[EldritchAbomination is incredibly powerful]], [[TheChessmaster incredibly intelligent]], and as such, when he makes an appearance, people start [[OhCrap freaking out.]]]] Let's put it this way: Dormammu was ''terrified'' at the prospect of having to deal with him. ''[[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Dormammu]]''.

* TouchedByVorlons: He was the Vorlon for ComicBook/CloakAndDagger. While they would still have gotten powers from the drug they were injected with, it was D'Spayre's magic that swapped the powers between the two of them.

Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: Had some instances of it. Once he tried to beg Magik to spare him, when he realized she has going to absorb the Dark Dimension into her. More recently, he had sold out Shuma-Gorath's location to the Empirikul cult. Dr. Strange manages to teleport a horrified Dormammu to a very angry Shuma-Gorath


Added DiffLines:

* DealWithTheDevil: He spared Dormammu and the Dark Dimension, when Dormammu made a deal with him. Dormammu gets left alone while the Imperator gets the location of Shuma-Gorath, the being he hates the most.
