** Also one to Ego for the Guardians. While Ego was Quill's biological father who saw other forms of life as beneath him, and only cared for his children so long as they could aide his mission in life to [[TheAssimilator assimilate the universe]]; Thanos is Gammora's adopted father, and was forced to sacrifice her because he genuinely loved her in order to obtain the Soul Stone for his own mission of saving life in general [[PopulationControl by "only" killing off half the population in the universe]].

* EnemyToAllLivingThings: By default Thanos serves as this since he is an OmnicidalManiac whose M.O. is to indiscriminately murder half a planets population once he invades. By the end of ''Infinity War'' he fully embraces this role once he murders half of the entire universe to prevent and OverpopulationCrisis from the other half.

* InsaneTrollLogic: He ''is'' called "The Mad Titan", after all, even if he [[TheyCalledMeMad denies]] it. He wants to avert a universe-wide OverpopulationCrisis by cutting all populations in half. Except [[ArtisticLicenseBiology that's not how overpopulation works]]. Even if things are improved for current generations (big if), any species he didn't kill would eventually repopulate, and further would likely over-consume in process of rebuilding the species, meaning in a few generations things could potentially be even ''worse'' than before. This is to say nothing of the fact the resources he devoted to achieving his goals could have been put towards much more altruistic methods of helping struggling planets. Or the fact that the nigh-omnipotence the Infinity Gauntlet grants would probably afford him many ways to solve the problem ''without'' killing half the universe.

However, because his planet failed in its efforts to resolve its own crisis, he feel that justifies his actions and his belief that extinction is inevitable without massive intervention.

* AntiVillain: Thanos sees himself as a necessary evil, for the greater good of the universe. He does not take enjoyment in spreading terror and ending lives, merely seeing him as the only one strong willed enough to bear the burden of the responsibility. He respects those with righteous intention and valor, even though they oppose him. Once his job is complete he ceases his reign of terror and retires to a peaceful planet.

** Really, this guy racks up so many people committing themselves to his death, it borders on ButForMeItWasTuesday.

* CharacterDerailment: In his cameos in ''The Avengers'', ''Guardians of the Galaxy'', and ''Avengers: Age of Ultron'', hes introduced as being similar to his comic book incarnation, from the outfit, ruthlessness, [[Jerkass jerkassery]] and goal of winning Death's heart by taking on the Avengers. However, hes incredibly different from his past appearances and his comic counterpart, being a WellIntentionedExtremist and a NobleDemon, even if hes a bit of a {{Jerkass}} at times.

* StupidEvil: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-Zagged]]. When it comes to his planning and fighting tactics, The Mad Titan is as cunning as he is strong. However, his EvilPlan itself is pointlessly evil in light of his motivations. He wants to kill half the universe for fear that life will implode on itself after expending all of the universe's resources, yet it never occurs to him that the Infinity Stones--reality warping stones with the power to bend reality as they see fit--could be used to create an abundance of resources and, by extension, end thousands of conflicts around the universe that are motivated by resource shortages, all without taking a single life himself.

* TheExtremistWasRight: After Thanos killed half the population, Gamora's homeworld went from TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt where millions were starving to a near-{{Utopia}} where no-one ever has to worry about food.[[note]]Which, incidentally, retcons Gamora's status as the last Zen Whoberi.[[/note]] Gamora still points out that killing half the population wasn't necessarily the only means to get there though.

* NighInvulnerability: Thanos barely takes any damage through the whole film, and even takes some hard hits from Hulk which barely slow him down. The only thing in the movie that really gets to him is Thor using Stormbreaker to impale him through the heart]] and even then, Thanos still has enough power to wipe out half the universe before teleporting away. However, he's still wounded even in his last appearance at the end from his fingersnap with the Infinity Gauntlet.
