* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: After Gao the Lesser loses in a fair duel against the player and [[SoreLoser tries to attack them with a style he was explicitly forbidden to use]], Master Li puts him in his place with a harsh tone.
-->'''Master Li''': Gao! I have made enough concessions to you today! I thought I could guide you away from your corrupted path, but you are too much the son of Gao the Greater! You are no longer welcome among my students, and your father's house shall have no more business here, despite his influence.
-->'''Gao the Lesser''': I was not beaten! Not by this peasant!
-->'''Master Li''': You were defeated by your own foolish ambition and predictable temper. I will speak with you in my chambers about your expulsion. Go now!

* TheSpock: Master Li is regarded as a highly capable man even by his enemies. While he's composed and polite, he doesn't display much emotion even when congratulating his protege. He also rarely raises his soft yet deep voice, but when he does, you know you're in trouble. [[spoiler:Raising a LaserGuidedTykebomb for twenty years in a facade of a caring man and killing them without trouble once they've served their purpose speaks of an especially dark example of this troupe. What's more, he's incapable of caring even for his family beyond practical value.]]

* TheSociopath: [[spoiler:Master Li is an extremely high-functioning example. He spent twenty years raising a LaserGuidedTykebomb from infancy while masquerading as a kind and wise parental figure, but doesn't hesitate to kill them once their purpose is served. As the new Emperor, he retains his outward sensibility that is ''not'' supported by his actions. He cannot feel true attachment even for his own family, which he confesses at a time he has nothing to lose from it. He gives rational explanations for his actions, yet admits at the height of his power that he slaughtered thousands of Spirit Monks just for a chance to be a god. His idea of an utopia includes control and obedience at the cost of individuality, and he believes that he can force the spirits of the death to rest.]]

* ClosedCircle: After being killed, Abbot Song has been trapped in Dirge's outer courtyard for the last twenty years, forced to witness the spirits of his fellow Spirit Monks and Imperial soldiers locked in a never-ending battle without being able to change it and unable to leave the Dirge or enter it through the sealed gates. This changes only when he joins the player in the restoration of Dirge's fountains.

He orchestrated the player's journey so that they could kill Hai and allow him seize the throne and the Water Dragon's power for himself. Also, it was only thanks to the Glorious Strategist's ingeniousness that Sun Hai managed to steal the Water Dragon's power in the first place.]]



* GracefulLoser: [[spoiler: Takes his final defeat by The Spirit Monk and failure of his 20 year long gambit for absolute power surprisingly well, choosing to indirectly compliment his student at his dying breath.]]

* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: To quote Master Li, that is the armor of a man who has no remorse or pity. [[spoiler:Except that the armor belonged originally to the speaker of those words, not the soul bound to it.]]

* NonIndicativeName: Zu's title is the same as of the first emperor, Sagacious Tien. Upon first hearing it, the player can question the compatibility.
-->'''The player''': I don't picture a thoughtful and perceptive emperor fighting in a swamp.
-->'''Zu''': I see your point. There are differences. Tien was a knowledgeable man, whereas I feel that a person can sometimes think too much.

It's after the Spirit Monk's [[spoiler:death]] that she becomes less ambiguous.
