Namely, [[spoiler: he canonically saves the last elven women (meaning he's not into causing racial extinction), and he stays faithful to Rose (whether it be through actually loving her, being against adultery, or [[PragmaticVillainy acknowledging her usefulness]])]].

* AxCrazy: At high corruption.

to:

* AxCrazy: At high corruption.You have to play this way if you want to go for 100% corruption.
* BlackKnight: By default, he's an intimidating TinTyrant in ridged armor and a spiky helmet. If you pursue the corruption path, his armor eventually darkens and demonic spikes start growing out of his skin, until the armor is black as night as the spikes on his shoulders reach to the top of his head.



* KnightInShiningArmor: If you remain at 0 corruption for long enough in the story, the ridges and spikes on the Overlord's armor become less pronounced and turn shinier. At 0 corruption and heading into the last few bosses, your armor is basically smooth and a bright, shiny silver.
