* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Its fragment in the ''High Charity'' dreadnaught ends up telling the Prophets of the relationship between the humans and the Forerunners in an effort to atone, but ended up provoking the Human-Covenant War instead.
* TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: Of a sort. It's made up of many minds, being a Compound Intelligence, and it's not quite clear ''how'' it helped John at the Ark. [[{{VideoGame/Halo 4}} It may have been securing his destination...]]

* IWorkAlone: Averted and rejected. In ''Halo: Cryptum'', the Didact tells Bornstellar that he works better with a crew. Considering Forerunner mutations, warrior servants as a whole are probably hard-wired to reject this trope.

* ButtMonkey: Doesn't really have the respect of any of the Warrior-Servant divisions that rotate in and out of the station, who tend to call him ''Barely'' Adequate Observer. It's also his job to clean the central hub, including the Forerunner waste processors.
* CassandraTruth: Every so often, he claims to see something in the storm outside the windows. Something that's capable of moving ''against'' the wind. Even his ancilla usually can't detect it, and he of course does not tell the others in the station to avoid more insults. [[spoiler:He turns out to be right, and the mysterious objects are living creatures.]]

* ReassignedToAntarctica: He's been assigned to the mining station for the past fifteen years. Every year a tanker arrives to load up on exotic particles and rotate the Warrior-Servant guard, and every year Adequate-Observer is not given an order to leave.

%% GENERAL RULE OF THUMB: Characters who appear in the games should be listed first, followed by live-action, full animation, novels, short stories, comics, and miscellaneous media, in that order. This isn't a hard and fast rule, so the occasional exception is ok.

* BigBrotherIsWatching: The Ecumene had the capability to listen in on all personal communications. Notably, several high-ranking members of the ''government'' were unaware of this fact, and decried it as "spying on the citizens." Such communications were only monitored by ancillas, however, and only brought to the attention of organic Forerunners in the event of disasters or events involving alien species. They could also track any and all ships making slipspace journeys in the galaxy, provided they traveled along rational paths. The Didact managed to avoid having his ship tracked by making an ''irrational'' jump into a sharply inclined orbit far "above" the galactic plane.



* CrazyPrepared: They programed the Halo's monitors to destroy anything that would threaten the Halos. [[spoiler: Which goes a long way to explaining why Spark killed Johnson in ''{{VideoGame/Halo 3}}''.]]

** Lifeworkers were apparently even ''[[UpToEleven more]]'' [[UpToEleven austere in their building practices]], so much so that the Librarian considered the Didact's house (built in the rather severe Warrior-Servant style) to be extremely luxurious compared to what she was used to before marrying him.



* BarrierWarrior: They can project hardlight shields to protect their allies.

* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Knights have four arms. Two are at the shoulder, with no visible attachment to the body, which holds their main weapon and a hardlight blade. The other pair is a small, creepy set sprouting from the chest, presumably for manipulating objects (as the weapon-bearing arms don't have hands).

* SkullForAHead: A Knight's "helm" can split into sections, revealing a screaming hardlight skull that doesn't look quite human.
* SwordAndGun: On the Knight. One arm holds their main weapon; the other ends in a burning hardlight sword.

The highest form of Warrior-Servant a Forerunner can mutate to, and one of the most effective and dedicated fighting forces in the galaxy. Led by the Didact for over 10,000 years, they spearheaded the efforts against [[spoiler:ancient humans]] and the Flood. [[spoiler: After exhausting all other efforts to create immunity to the Flood, they were willingly converted into AI by the Composer and bound to mechanical hardlight bodies.]]
