* StupidEvil: Unable to conceive of any threat to what he believes to be his own impervious power, Braunschweig orders one of his own territory's planets nuked in response to a rebellion, despite his own soldiers pointing out the detrimental consequences of doing so. After ignoring their suggestions, Braunschweig quickly finds himself losing allies to both abandonment and suicide out of sheer disgust and swiftly loses his fight against Lohengramm.

* DirtyCoward: Braunschweig demands his soldiers fight to their last ounce of strength and condemns anyone who does anything less as a traitor. Despite his rhetoric, he still has the gall to flee himself when the going gets tough and when he's caught and "persuaded" to commit suicide, he dies with a look of terror on his face as he struggles to break free and run.

* FromNobodyToNightmare: Began life as the son of an ImpoverishedPatrician in the lower ranks of the Imperial nobility. After his father sold his sister to the Kaiser, he embarked on a secret quest for revenge that saw him swiftly climb his way up the ranks to become one of the Empire's most skilled and feared admirals. [[spoiler:He eventually overthrows the Goldenbaum dynasty and has himself crowned Kaiser]].

* GoodIsNotNice: She's kind and affectionate, but beneath the surface can be as cold and calculating as Oberstein.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: After the Lippstadt Rebellion starts to unravel, he gives an [[GoYeHeroesGoAndDie impassioned yet ineffectual speech]] denouncing anyone who would run away from the coming battle as a DirtyCoward -- then immediately makes an aside comment to one of his aides revealing he's made an escape shuttle ready for himself.

Added DiffLines:

* ItAmusedMe: A rare heroic version. He follows Yang into revolt out of "foppery and whim," and his favorite words in the universe are "So what?", which he claims to be a universal ArmorPiercingQuestion.

* HypercompetentSidekick: Reinhard surrounds himself with these by gathering the most talented men in the Empire. Though Reinhard is [[TheAce incredibly competent in all fields]], it could be argued that he has subordinates that excel him in the field they are working for (except warfare, though Reuenthal and especially Kircheis may be equal). For example, Hilda is a smarter politician than him. Reinhard relying on their superior abilities is what makes him such a supreme leader.

* HypercompetentSidekick: Reinhard von Lohemgramm may be a brilliant and ambitious fleet commander, but his personal sense of honor and lack of interest in most civilian affairs give him certain blindspots. Oberstein, a ruthless schemer, covers those weaknesses quite well.

* HypercompetentSidekick: She favours the strategy that instead of trying to be proficient at everything, it's more efficient to find experts to work for you. And she herself is one to Reinhard when it comes to politics.

* HypercompetentSidekick: As noted by Yang, he needs her around to do all the paper work and operate the machinery for him

* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: A rare adult and male example, both in the narrative and in-universe. [[spoiler:Kircheis's death defending Reinhard from assassins is both exalted as an example of true loyalty and lamented as a sign of the perversity of the universe. In a meta sense, Kircheis even seems to come across as part of the price Reinhard pays for his ruthlessness in dealing with Westerland]].
