* {{Greed}}: The emotion that drives the Corps.

* {{Greed}}: The emotion that drives the Corps. Interesting the Orange Lantern is always a singular individual because nobody avaricious enough to activate and control the orange light could ever bear the thought of sharing it. This is why the deputy didn't work out: they'd fight each other over the power, cutting their strength to less than half.



* {{Greed}}: He is the greediest creature to ever live. True to form, he's the only true member of the corps; the others are all spirits of the people he killed in his constant search for '''''more'''''.
** Funnily enough, Larfleeze was once referred to ''in-story'' as "Scrooge [=McDuck=] with a power ring"
** Later on, ComicBook/LexLuthor is inducted as a deputy Orange Lantern and becomes so utterly consumed by greed that he turns on the other lanterns, wanting ALL the rings.
--->'''Larfleeze''' to Lex Luthor: Victory is mine! And if you had hair that would be mine, too!
** Ironically enough, his last act of the ComicBook/BlackestNight arc was tossing Luthor back to the humans, which Sinestro lampshaded was an act of him giving something to someone. Larfleeze reacts in stunned shock.
** As a bit of a TragicHero, the top thing Larfleeze wanted was [[spoiler: the ''only'' thing he really wants, his family]]. In the end [[spoiler:he gets reunited with them. Then promptly falls back into stealing and hoarding because old habits die hard.]]







* As mentioned before, ComicBook/LexLuthor was temporarily deputized during the ''ComicBook/BlackestNight''.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: When Larfleeze was first introduced he was more often referred to under his codename Agent Orange, to the point that when he stole new individuals, it was said they "belonged to Agent Orange." But over time characters began referring to him solely as Larfleeze more and more, to the point that his own series was called ''Larfleeze'' instead of ''Agent Orange''.

When Larfleeze was first introduced he was more often referred to under his codename Agent Orange, to the point that when he stole new individuals, it was said they "belonged to Agent Orange." But over time characters began referring to him solely as Larfleeze more and more, to the point that his own series was called ''Larfleeze'' instead of ''Agent Orange''.Orange''.
** The first look at Larfleeze's treasure room back in ''DC Universe'' #0 revealed it to be rather spacious and opulent, decorated in tones of orange and gold with the Orange Lantern symbol tastefully adorned on the walls. This was a far cry from the dank, dark chambers littered with spoiled food and rotted corpses that was seen in Larfleeze's official debut.
** In the issues leading up to the ''Agent Orange'' arc, the first mention of Larfleeze came when Scar spoke with the other Guardians about something troubling she learned, saying "He calls himself Agent Orange." Scar's tone of voice made it sound as if they had only just learned about Larfleeze and the Orange Light's existence, despite later reveals that the Guardians knew exactly who and what he was and had known for centuries.



* ProgressivelyPrettier: Glomulus's initial design and early appearances were very ugly and disgusting looking, but when he began appearing in ''New Guardians'' his appearance fell more under UglyCute like a strange little plush toy.

%%* TeamPet* TeamPet: Of the New Guardians.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In the ''Larfleeze'' comic after [[spoiler: he's revived by the Wanderer, Glomulus is suddenly much more sentient and vindictive then when he was first alive, and is eager to make Larfleeze suffer just like the other Orange Lanterns.]]
* TookALevelInKindness: Was mainly just a mindless ExtremeOmnivore when he was originally alive, but his time with the New Guardians shows him developing more sentience and a fondness for Kyle Rayner and the other colored Lanterns.



** AGodAmI: Combined with JerkassGods, he demanded people give him their valuables. Although, he wasn't ALL bad. See above.

** DefiantToTheEnd: When Larfleeze considers killing the Orange Lanterns [[spoiler: again]] after the torture they put him through, Clypta announces that they (or at the very least, she) will spend every second fighting against Larfleeze's control if he turns them into constructs again. [[spoiler: Larfleeze decides they're not worth the effort and leaves them to die.]]

** {{Mummy}}: Looks like one and is implied to be one. He comes from a planet called Cairo and his Black Lantern mentioned Larfleeze stole the treasures buried next to him.



** BadAssDecay: Prior to BlackestNight, Stargrave was one of the bigger villains the LegionOfSuperHeroes ever fought, easily capable of fighting off the Legion at its full might unless they planned ahead. Afterward, well, he's Larfleeze's butler -- and not even a BattleButler.

Of course since his battles with the Legion chronologically took place a thousand years into the future, it's possible at some point Pulsar TookALevelInBadass before encountering the Legionnaires.

* {{Asexuality}}: Possibly, as heavy abuse on his mother's part made him believe than any woman that wasn't her was vile and would give him cooties.

* BornIntoSlavery - A small glimpse into his past shown in the Book of Black shows that he was a mining slave as a child. Being forced to compete with the other kids for who gets to eat is implied to have fostered his hatred of sharing.

*** The end of his ongoing, wherein he discovers the Green Lantern [[IdiotHero G'nort]] is his cousin... distantly related by 14 generations thanks to [[LongLived the incredibly long lifespan]] of Larfleeze's species, but still enough of a connection to bring Larfleeze to tears. While still his egotistical self, he shows G'nort almost unbelievably genuine affection and generosity.

He's now a part of the New Guardians, as Larfleeze sent him out to find who's trying to take rings from each corps, including (especially) his own. [[spoiler:Or at least, that's the cover story, as Larfleeze manipulated the group into fighting another of his enemies.]]

* ShrugOfGod: Many fans have been asking when the Orange Lantern oath would be revealed. The response was basically "soon" (back in 2010). It's actually taken so long it was made fun of by Lex in ''Action Comics''. It hasn't stopped fans from inventing their own versions and attempting to pass them off as official on Wikipedia.
** Larfleeze's oath is finally mentioned in ''ComicBook/WrathOfTheFirstLantern''. It's as [[{{Greed}} silly]] as anyone would think.



* BadassDecay: Initially introduced as a universe-level threat who could probably best the Guardians of the Universe on his own, BlackestNight turned him into LaughablyEvil comic relief who regularly needed [[EnemyMine help from his enemy corps]] just to survive. While the opening arc to New Guardians attempted to revert this, he's still pretty much just a joke character.
