* TheHedonist: [[spoiler: Before ''Soul Reaver 2'' established that this was due to Mobius' manipulation]] ''Blood Omen'' had contained some subtle hints that Malek was late to defend the Circle because he was busy carousing. Being turned into a fleshless suit of AnimatedArmor knocked it out of him anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* DeaderThanDead: [[spoiler:At the end of ''Defiance'', his physical body is impaled and its blood drained by Kain, his soul is reaved and consumed by Raziel, and his corpse is then possessed by Raziel where it fades into nothingness after he's absorbed into the Soul Reaver]]. About the only thing left of Moebius by that point is his staff.

* CompleteImmortality: As stated in the first ''Soul Reaver'', Raziel is "beyond death." If he is slain in the Material Realm, he merely shifts back into the Spectral Realm, and if he is defeated there, he will eventually reform.

* MultiMeleeMaster: Kain has demonstrated skilled use of a large variety of weapons; in Blood Omen he carried three different swords(one of which was [[FlamingSword on fire]] and the other was the [[SoulCuttingBlade Soul]] [[{{BFS}} Reaver]] ), a mace, and a [[DualWielding pair of axes]]. In Blood Omen 2 he used a variety of disposable, breakable weapons. However, he's never been shown using ranged weapons, only using magic at a distance; indeed, he admits to having fairly poor aim.

* VillainousValor: Kain's motives might be selfish, but he's not afraid to risk his life to achieve his goals. [[spoiler: In ''Soul Reaver 2'', when he meets Raziel at the moment he was supposed to kill him, and while he does show some fear of his possible end, he takes the riskier option of talking Raziel into asserting his free will rather than trying to fight him.]]

* TheUnchosenOne: [[spoiler:As Moebius and The Elder God point out to him in ''Defiance'', despite Raziel's belief he's TheChosenOne, that title belongs to Kain. Raziel isn't the savior of Nosgoth, he's the guy who can make it right/screw it up for the real thing.]]

* HumiliationConga: See KickTheSonOfABitch further down the page. In the span of about sixty seconds, all of Moebius's schemes blow up in his face, his powers fail him, and we see him reduced to a simpering old man before [[spoiler:he's finally put of his misery for good.]]

* OhCrap: In ''Defiance'', the look on his face when [[spoiler: he realizes Kain is not dead and is right behind him]] is absolutely priceless. Were he not [[spoiler: ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice]] shortly afterward, he would have had to [[BringMyBrownPants change his pants]] right then and there.

* WildMassGuessing: An in-universe example--Raziel suggests the Elder God isn't a true god but just a powerful entity presenting himself as one, and also wonders if it was really the Elder God who revived him, or if it was another force that did it and the Elder God just took credit for it to win Raziel's allegiance. Both theories are entirely possible, and WordOfGod says they would have explored them in future games that never came to light, but in the canon it's unknown what the truth is.

* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: Mortanius, having unwillingly murdered Ariel, spends most of the first game trying to repair the damage this has caused. It's also revealed that he's atoning for an even bigger misdeed- helping Moebius overthrow the vampires and removing the Pillars from vampire ownership- by his resurrection of Kain as the Scion of Balance]]

* ExpressiveMask: His skeletal "face," in the first game is actually a mask- a very convincing one at that.

* WalkingWasteland: according to both deleted lines and the Silicon Knights character biographies, Dejoule's powers have grown to the point that her presence can blister the skin and sterilize the cells of anybody standing too close to her- hence the reason why she wears an insulating cloak.

* BadLiar: He makes some attempts at lying in ''Blood Omen 2'', and they don't fool anybody. Then again, he does lie to Raziel about the eventual fate of the Razielim to make him angrier, so he either had a good training during his reign or he wasn't even trying in Blood Omen 2.

* AndIMustScream: First, he gets cast into the Lake of the Dead and burns for several centuries until the Elder God plucks him from the time stream, then between ''Soul Reaver 2'' and ''Defiance'' he spends a few more centuries as the Elder God's prisoner. According to the Elder God this is the best he can do--Raziel's nature as his agent means he's physically incapable of dying, so he settles for keeping Raziel weak and immobilized. [[spoiler:Raziel's fate to be drawn into the Soul Reaver ''may'' be considered this, the series doesn't make it clear if the "Raziel" spirit in the Reaver has full sentience or not, though fortunately it's implied not. Either way though, he's finally freed at the end of ''Defiance'' when he releases the purified spectral Reaver into Kain.]]
