* EnigmaticMinion: On one hand, he created a self-loathing Tavros/Vriska BodyHorror hybrid for no reason, conspires with his even ''more'' insane dancestor, and serves as a guide for Caliborn. On the other hand, he still values his relationships with Karkat and Terezi, offered to be a guide for Jane, and created a stable hybrid of Sollux and Eridan to assist Jake with, a stable hybrid of Nepeta and Feferi to assist Roxy with, and prototyped Equuis to assist Dirk with. What he's playing at is anyone's guess. Act 6 Act 5 Act 2 reveals that he's been under the mind control of Aranea for quite some time, which would explain ''some'' of his actions.* EruditeStoner: Though he zones out from time to time, he's fairly smart at understanding exactly what to say to his pals.

* MythologyGag[=/=]CreatorInJoke: More than any other character in ''Homestuck'', Equius is a reference to Hussie's older work, like his satirical blog post on the paintings that would later became Equius's "fine art" or his death being a WholePlotReference to ''Whistles''.

* TheWorfEffect: Equius finds Sgrub to be a somewhat effortless affair thanks to how incredibly strong he is naturally. Gamzee manages to dominate him completely and utterly through several means, to show us just how dangerous he is now.
** WorfHadTheFlu: His fight with Gamzee probably wouldn't have been so one-sided if weren't for his refusal to fight a Highblood.

* FauxAffablyEvil: Became this during Act 5 Act 2, making jokes and acting friendly only to further torment the other trolls

* JokeCharacter: Started out as one before his FreakOut.
** LethalJokeCharacter: He seems harmless enough, but [[NoodleIncident apparently what he did to the]] [[EldritchAbomination Black King]] [[NoodleIncident in the troll session]] was the single most damaging move in the battle, outweighing even [[{{Munchkin}} Vriska's]] final blow. During Act 5 Act 2, his descent into insanity slowly showcased the development of him going from Joke to just plain Lethal.



* KillEmAll[=/=]TogetherInDeath[=/=]MurderIsTheBestSolution: Apparently the main tenet of [[ReligionOfEvil the Subjugglator cult]]'s theology.

* MindRape: His innate psychic power due to his purple blood is to insert things into people's subconscious, usually in the form of hatred, which also makes said thing real in their DreamWorld. He's done this twice that we've seen, which instilled a fear of clowns in John (creating the Imp Doll in his tower on Prospit) and a fear of puppets in Dave (creating Cal in his tower on Derse). He was not shown using his power on Rose or Jade, suggesting that they might have some immunity to this power. However, seeing as he essentially never interacted with them it may just not have occurred to him to do so.
** HeartIsAnAwesomePower: It's implied that with proper application of his powers, you can make a person go ''insane''.
* ModestRoyalty[=/=]RebelPrince: He's only a smidge away from Eridan and Feferi's castes, but he doesn't act or look like it and doesn't seem to care about blood color--until he's sober.

* ThenLetMeBeEvil[=/=]StoppedCaring: Made a personal decision to this effect by the opening of ''Return to Core''. By then, Eridan has utterly given up on everything except survival and is perfectly willing to murder all trollkind if doing so would get him out of his current situation.

* CulturedWarrior: He collects fine art (or at least what ''he'' considers to be fine art), has an appreciation for nature, and displays a penchant for slam poetry. If you piss him off, however, he will literally punch your head off. He also objects to 100d language, leading to GoshdangItToHeck.

Added DiffLines:

** Threw away his beliefs after becoming enrage from seeing the ''Miracles'' ICP music video, only to start acting like the murderous characters from their much darker songs.


Added DiffLines:

** Most of his personality after becoming sober is from the more darker ICP character songs. Specifically, his tendency to collect heads is from one of their better songs ''Bowling Balls'', while his inflicting DeathByIrony comes from most of their Dark Carnival songs about KarmaticDeath.

* ArcherArchetype: In keeping with the Sagittarius theme, considers the bow a dignified weapon of the upper classes. He even begins every line with a symbolic bow and arrow: D -->. He's actually terrible at archery, though, to the point where he's never successfully fired an arrow.
