* SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum: Despite Haephnes and Drazil doing their best to work together, they cannot stop Revya from destroying all of existence in spite of potentially killing themself in the process. Doesn't matter to them. "It was fun."

%%* JerkAss:
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Post-CharacterDevelopmentHe spends much of the game taunting and rudely dismissing everyone around him (especially Danette and Levin), and heavily vocalizes his intent to wipe out the world once he gets control of Revya's body. However, while still quite rude, he mellows over time, becoming especially caring towards Revya.



* PetTheDog: [[spoiler: In the Median Good ending when Revya is dying from the Scarlet Iago. While he's in danger as well, he actually seems more concerned about Revya's life than his.]]

She's the only one who continues to believe in Revya until the end even knowing it's hopeless. She even lets Revya kill her so she can become a Crimson Tear.

* {{Yandere}}[=/=][[DontYouWantToRavishMe Don't You Want To Ravish Him?]]: A mild version of this for Penn, particularly in the Demon Path. When she demands that [[spoiler:Revya]] return Penn to her, she gets rather miffed that [[spoiler:he/she]] didn't even want Penn in the first place. She then decides to kick [[spoiler:his/her]] ass on the spot for not wanting to kidnap Penn.

Considering that he/she and Gig spent the entire game killing and oppressing everyone in their path, he has every right to be pissed.

The HeroicMime of our story, except far less pleasant. In the Demon Path, instead of trying to save the world, Revya is hell-bent on having a good time by causing death and despair with every step he/she takes. In doing so, he/she eventually rules all over Prodesto and christens his/herself "The Devourlord".

* TheEmpire: After taking over Orviska, he/she decides to create one and makes him/herself it's EvilOverlord, the Devourlord. Unfortunately, he/she was asleep when Gig decided to name it the [[SuperFunHappyThingOfDoom BFF Empire]].

* UnwittingPawn: What he/she would have been if the player took the Normal Path, being the one to restore the cycle of souls. It's implied that this is the reason he/she turns on Virtuous, feeling that he/she was nothing more than a tool for her.
* VillainProtagonist: Very much so. The entire story is about his/her rise as a villain and he/she pretty much becomes BigBad by the end.
* VillainousFriendship: With Gig in the Demon Path, both of them enjoying the death and destruction that they're causing throughout Prodesto. Even at the end of the Good Ending, as horrified as Vigilance was about their actions, he enjoyed his time with Revya, saying that Gig was very lonely before he met him/her. When Vigilance leaves, Revya is distraught and doesn't bother to fight back when the heroes decide his/her fate.
* WhereIWasBornAndRazed: Revya's first act of villainy? Killing everyone in his/her village.
* WouldHurtAChild: Revya makes it clear all throughout the game that he/she not only doesn't spare children, but he/she would make them his/her first targets if it will make things more interesting. Particular moments include killing a Sepp child in front of his parents, threatening Penn's life if the Nereids and the Knights of Raide don't fight to the death, and killing Agrippa right in front of Pinot (not too long after he/she saved her life no less).
