* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: Heck, yes. Using nothing more than BS, parlor tricks, and stage technology, he convinces all ''four'' Witches that he's too powerful to challenge.



* MagnificentBastard: And how! He is a very squishy, not physically imposing {{Muggle}}. But the storm blows him to Oz, and within ''weeks,'' using a combination of bluff, cons, and carny tricks, he has fooled ''four'' [[TheArchmage Witches]] into thinking he's way more powerful, maneuvered them into an EnforcedColdWar, set himself up as an unquestioned GodEmperor [[spoiler: And sold the ''real'' heir to the throne into slavery with a low-rent sorceress, bespelled as the incorrect gender to further obfuscate her identity]]. Baum played down the "bastard" part in later books, but modern writers (like ''{{Literature/Wicked}}'' and ''{{Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful}}'') are apt to play up his questionable moral compass.

* UnfortunateNames: As mentioned above, his initials spell out "Oz Pinhead", [[MeaningfulName naturally reflecting]] the fact he's almost a complete fraud.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakoutCharacter: Not nearly to the extent of the Woggle-Bug, but he did have a film based on him, thus being one of the first movie robots in history.
