* MadeOfIron: The scaly skin of the Locust is very tough, so tough that it often caused the bayonet of (what would later be known as) the Retro Lancer to snap in two, necessitating the invention of the modern-day Lancer with its chainsaw bayonet.



* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He's only known as the Speaker; even moreso, he isn't even named in the game itself: the name is only mentioned in the achievement for defeating him.

* [[AliensSpeakingEnglish Locust Speaking Tyran]]: Although their grasp of the language is usually somewhere in the HulkSpeak to YouNoTakeCandle range. Their written language is also very different.
* [[spoiler:{{Mutants}}: They're really the descendents of experiments at the New Hope facility where people were deliberately exposed to immulsion so that the COG could treat rustlung, with Myrrah being descended from one of the scientists. The Sires, their predecessors, were essentially the first Lambent creatures.]]

different. [[spoiler:After evolving into Scions, the fluency of their speech increased significantly, at least in one case.]]

* BoomerangBigot: Clearly has a very negative view of humans, despite obviously being very human herself.



* VillainousLegacy: [[spoiler:As it turns out, she had at least a daughter, who kept the symbol of the Locust Horde with her, handing it down to her own daughter, Kait Diaz, in the ending of ''4''.]]

* SuperStrength: In the ''Ultimate Edition'' remaster, he effortlessly crushes a COG soldier's helmet with one hand.



* {{Badass}}

to:

* {{Badass}}{{Badass}}: Marcus declares that this guy makes RAAM look like a pushover after watching him cut a tank in half. His actual boss fight turns out to be significantly easier than the fight with RAAM, though.

* FillerVillain: He's not at all developed, unlike any of the original Locust Horde leaders, and exists mostly to put an individual face on the otherwise characterless Swarm.

to:

* FillerVillain: He's not at all developed, unlike any of the original Locust Horde leaders, and exists mostly to put an individual face on the Swarm, which otherwise characterless Swarm.has no individual characters in the entire game.
* GutturalGrowler: Like other Locust. However despite only having a handful of lines and not having anything really important to say, his English is surprisingly good and he's actually the most eloquent Locust character in the series, other than Myrrah (who's actually human).
* HandicappedBadass: He fairly easily takes out Reyna and Oscar, two legitimate badasses in their own right, all ''after'' Reyna already cuts off one of his hands.


Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: During the attack on Kait's village, he shrugs off multiple stab wounds as well as two direct shotgun blasts to the back while fighting Reyna and Oscar, all with no lasting effect.
** StrongerWithAge: Like the other Scions, he seems significantly stronger than the old Locust Drones after spending 25 years in hibernation while evolving from the anti-Imulsion pulse.

!!The Speaker

A Locust Scion of some importance that appears in ''Gears of War 4''. He's the Locust personally responsible for leading the attack on Kait's village and kidnapping her mother.
----
* AdvertisedExtra: He appears somewhat prominently in the game's trailer, but actually only has one scene (two if you count the village attack where he's always out-of-focus) and is promptly killed off.
* ClimaxBoss: He fights you while riding a Swarmak about 4/5ths of the way through the game.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He's only known as the Speaker; even moreso, he isn't even named in the game itself: the name is only mentioned in the achievement for defeating him.
* FillerVillain: He's not at all developed, unlike any of the original Locust Horde leaders, and exists mostly to put an individual face on the otherwise characterless Swarm.
* ItsPersonal: Kait recognizes him as the leader of the attack on her village, due to his missing hand which Reyna cut off during their fight, which motivates her to fight and kill him.
* PlotIrrelevantVillain: The opening attack on Kait's village aside, he's not involved with the plot at all (Chancellor Jinn actually would fit the role of the game's BigBad much better, aside from the fact she has nothing to do with the whole Swarm plot-line), and is mostly notable solely because he's the only individual Swarm character in the game.

* CameBackStrong: [[spoiler:Turns out Adam's weapon didn't kill the Locust after all, or at least not all of them. It caused them to undergo a 25-year-long evolution process that turned them into the more powerful Scions.]]



* HideYourChildren: {{Lampshade}}d by Baird, who remarks in one of the collectible intel items that it's strange despite fighting straight into the heart of the Locust civilization, there are no Locust children running around to shoot. ''Gears of War 4'' reveals that [[spoiler: the Locust are created from captured humans who are put into cocoons that dissolve them and reform them into Locust]].

** In ''Gears of War 4'', [[spoiler: a small number of Locust who survived the mass extinction event at the end of ''Gears of War 3'' begin capturing humans to mutate into a new generation of Locusts, creating the Swarm. The older, original Locust are now known as Scions and serve as GiantMook enemies.]]
