Added DiffLines:

* HerosEvilPredecessor: Heiss was the previous Sacrifice, but he rejected his role because he didn't want to die for a CrapsackWorld. His main goal is to get Stocke to reject being the Sacrifice as well, but his actions ironically caused his nephew to accept his role.

* TheFundamentalist

to:

* TheFundamentalistTheFundamentalist: His dying words imply that he actually believes he's in Noah's favor.


Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Discussed and subverted. The party finds it unsatisfying that he gets to GoOutWithASmile after all the lives he ruined, but they realize that now that he's dead, he'll no longer hold the reigns of history and that [[UnPerson he'll have no legacy]]. By dwelling on his blissful end, they're only letting him win in a way.

* [[spoiler:AntiAntiChrist]]: [[spoiler:Heiss abducted Prince Ernst at the beginning of his "second life," renaming him Stocke and raising him in Granorg's rival Alistel. His intent was to train Stocke to assist him in destroying humanity. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Everything he does to Stocke has the opposite effect]]. Moving Stocke away from Granorg protects him from his DysfunctionJunction family and introduces him to his best friend Rosch. He butchers Marco and Raynie's unit so he can hire them to assist Stocke, but they become his newest and dearest friends, furthering Stocke's devotion to others.]]
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Verges on MegaManning. Stocke can learn techniques which take years to master with a brief tutorial and a few minutes' observation, though this may involve a certain amount of [[SaveScumming creative use of his powers]].
* BadassCape[=/=]ScarfOfAsskicking: It's half cape, half scarf, and all badass.
** He doesn't just dress the part.
