* PurpleIsPowerful: Mantarok has purple-aligned magic that far exceeds the others, becoming a GameBreaker if you get the runes before they become {{Permanently Missable|Content}}. The other Ancients recognize this and have the Corpse God bound in his own temple. [[spoiler:It's not enough to stop him from killing them all.]]

to:

* NonElemental: Figuratively speaking, anyway. His magicks have no weaknesses to the other three Ancients, affecting all equally, but they're not ''quite'' as powerful as using a properly aligned offensive magick. That said...

* SquishyWizard: One of the best magic-users out of the cast, very low sanity and health and too physically weak to wield the two-edged sword easily.

* SquishyWizard: One of the best magic-users out of the cast, very low sanity and health and too physically weak to wield the two-edged sword easily. He's also the first character who can cast ''every'' spell in the game with the seven-point Circle of Power he finds, but he must create the final three spells whose scrolls aren't found until later.

* {{BFS}}: The two-handed sword. Even a scrawny messenger can cleave a zombie in half with it. And he'd better get it if you want Paul to have access to it later.

* HappyEnding: Relatively speaking. Nearly everybody else who came into contact with the Tome of Eternal Darkness suffers ''some form'' of horrific, terrible, fate, either dying in an excruciating fashion, becoming bound to their cursed location or going totally insane, and are thus represented as such in the chamber leading to the Tome. Not Lindsey. He wrote a pulp book about his adventures, hid his artefact behind it, and had a happy retirement.

* TheManyDeathsOfYou: [[spoiler: Paul, depending on Pious' given Ancient, can die in three different ways. Either he gets flattened under the red Guardian's claw, stomped by the blue Guardian's foot, or [[YourHeadASplode his head a sploded]] psychically by the green Guardian.]]
* MercyKill: He does this for [[spoiler: Anthony]], finally putting him out of his misery and offering him last rites.
* RealMenLoveJesus[=/=]ReligiousBruiser: A fransiscan monk who can pray to restore Sanity. He also conducts a funeral for poor Anthony.

* BadAss: One of the only practiced fighters in the cast with average to high stats all around. While he, unlike Pious, doesn't lack a Sanity Meter to signify total dauntlessness, at low sanity, his voice clips suggest shrugging off the worst of having it tested.
