* AlienLunch: It's revealed in Jason Aaron's run that his usual meals are made up of horribly disgusting indescribable stuff that barely qualifies as food. Unlike most examples, he utterly hates it, but his body has warped so much from a combination of his spell casting and all the dimensions he's been through that it's all he can eat.

* DeusExMachina: Was once a meme for him, which was acknowledged in a comic where he was given the ability to intentionally invoke it. Mostly, though, he serves in the traditional sense, such as when the Fantastic Four had a surprise encounter with Shuma Gorath and Dr. Strange conveniently showed up to save them.

* WhoYouGonnaCall: He is the go-to guy for dealing with most supernatural threats in the Marvel universe and people often come directly to him to deal with their supernatural problems. And since he's the Sorcerer Supreme, it's pretty much in his job description.

Salome was once a member of the Blood who joined Zarathos' cause to become the Fallen; however she later rebelled and went after her own pursuits. At one point she was also known as the Sorceress Supreme of this dimension and the first from Earth, [[UnreliableNarrator by her own account]]. When the Fallen came back to aid Zarathos, she went out on her own to defeat the current Sorcerer Supreme, Dr. Strange, and reclaim her title.

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/orini_clea.jpg]]

Orini was one of Dormammu's closest disciples. Many years ago when Orini was a young man he met and was seduced by Umar. Six cycles later she gave birth to their daughter Clea, and since she refused to acknowledge her she gave Orini the child to be raised, and Orini in turn never told Clea who her mother was. Orini rose in rank and was regarded as Dormammu`s best disciple so Clea was treated as a princess. Orini was the one to alert Dormammu when Dr.Strange entered the Dark Dimension the first time. After Clea met Dr.Strange and left with him, Orini's status was diminished. Nevertheless, Orini served Dormammu faithfully even to the point of almost killing his daughter.

* BadassCreed: n "The Oath", Stephen manages to make the Hippocratic Oath badass:
-->"I have sworn many oaths in my day, to every being from Hoggoth to Watoomb. But the first oath I swore was the Hippocratic. 'I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients, according to my judgement and ability, and I will do so at any cost.'"

Added DiffLines:

* AffablyEvil: Apologizes for failing to fix his hands upon meeting Stephen, despite said event happening decades prior, and Stephen having long moved past it.
* AntiVillain: Uses his skills and connections to help people around the world. His only real act of villainy was [[TooDumbToLive trying to kill Wong]].
* BadassInANiceSuit
* GoodPowersBadPeople: He doesn't start out bad, learning magic with the intention of curing people.
* HealingHands: [[IncrediblyLamePun Puns aside]], he is able to cure a sick girl in Tibet just by laying his hands on her.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Steals the elixir of life from Stephen, almost killing Wong and Stephen in the process, with plans on destroying it so as to, as he claims, prevent humanity from abusing its power. Stephen calls him out on this, claiming he's really doing it so as to please the [[MegaCorp pharmaceutical companies]]. He admits it's a little of both.
* ManInWhite: Wears a white suit, and since he is a doctor, uses his abilities for healing purposes.
* MegaCorp: Heads a very successful pharmaceutical company.
* MismatchedEyes: One is blue, the other brown.
* MyGreatestFailure: Considered his botching of Stephen's hand surgery this. After reflection, however, he deduces that had he not botched it, [[SuperHeroOrigin Strange would have never have become the Sorcerer Supreme]], and he'd have [[StartOfDarkness never learned the mystic arts as well.]] He still takes the time to apologize to Stephen when they first meet though.
** Later considers it to be the death of Reginald Pavlish, whose death at his hands causes him to swear off magic. Until Stephen Stephen gets in his way, that is.
* WhiteMage: A rare villainous example.
* WhiteMagic: Never uses any overtly evil magic, and was trained in the mystic arts by The Ancient One.
