* {{Narcissist}}: A malignant example (one with prominent traits commonly associated with psychopathy). In all his appearances in Fate/Stay Night, Zouken is consistently portrayed as an egomaniacal and unrepentantly cruel magus who has no qualms murdering countless innocents to prolong his existence despite already living for several centuries. He arrogantly [[AboveGoodAndEvil views all maguses who set moral boundaries on their ambition and pursuit of knowledge as fools lacking the vision and resolve to achieve true greatness]]. He is also shown to be an unrepentant [[{{Sadist}} sadist]] who [[FortheEvulz finds physical and psychological torture to be very entertaining]]. [[spoiler: At the end of '' Heaven's Feel '', it is revealed that he originally sought the Grail to [[VisionaryVillain reach an ideal utopia free of hatred and suffering where all knowledge was attainable]]. Upon being forced to confront defeat,he ultimately resigns himself to his fate after realizing that future maguses will inevitably follow in his footsteps to make his dream a reality thereby forever securing his place in history..]]

Ultimately, this flaw leads to Zouken's demise after Sakura becomes [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity intoxicated by her newfound power]] and [[TheDogBitesBack rebels against his control]].]]
