* WeakButSkilled: Magically, he is a one trick pony. Physically, he isn't in the best shape of his life. However, once he starts summoning his humanoid demons, he can summon ten in as many seconds, is practiced to summon hundreds in as many seconds, and each one is a dangerous fighter and hunter.

* OutGambitted: Had Harry gone with his suggestion to blow up Marva's HQ, hostages and all, in ''Blood Rites'' her entire gambit would have gone up in flames, and likely Marva too.

* HalfHumanHybrid: ''Maybe.'' He mentions that his father was "a piece of work," which, in conjunction with describing Harry's mom in the same way, ''implies'' [[spoiler:that he was a skinwalker too]]. But details are scarce.

* UltimateBlacksmith: The svartalves crafted weapons for the Norse gods, so they must be pretty good. Harry has hired one to make a stronger magic circle in his old lab before the place burned down.

* TruceZone[=/=]BadGuyBar[=/=]GoodGuyBar: [=McAnally=]'s. As accorded neutral ground, any supernatural who's signed onto the Unseelie Accords is expected to behave him, her, or itself. Granted, that doesn't mean things are any less tense, but it at least gives those same supernatural types somewhere they can hang out without having to worry too much about their personal safety.

* IKnowYourTrueName: Harry names the island Demonreach, for which is seems grateful. As of ''Skin Game'', it has a first name as well--Alfred. It started as a joke, but the entity took it seriously. This is because while the spirit is connected to the island, it is still distinct from the island and doesn't understand sarcasm.

** [[spoiler:Subverted when re-reading the book with knowledge of the twist. Every time Harry expresses disapproval of his actions, Grey basically asks (in code) "Do you want me to switch sides for you right now? Because I'll do it." With the proper context, he comes off as someone who strongly wants Harry to understand that he's not actually a bad person]].

* {{Greed}}: One of the motivations for the ex-wives is that, if Genosa remarries, their generous alimony payments will be reduced or eliminated. They therefore try to kill his new love interest to prevent that.

* BlowGun: Her weapon of choice when not using entropy magic. Both Harry and Murphy realize that his attacker probably didn't have much practical experience, since a blowgun is too impractical, too "Hollywood" of a weapon.

* CrazyPrepared: When Harry first enters the World Tree, he passes through a collection of just about every weapon in history, but gathered in such numbers that they could "win a minor war in a century of your choice". Then he gets on the elevator, which rises up past at least ''seven more'' floors similarly outfitted, before he just stops counting. When he asks Gard about how ridiculously well-armed Vadderung is, her only response is that "one can only have as much preparation as one has foresight." It's also implied that his belief in foresight is what allowed him to find out where Maggie was going to be taken for the sacrifice (meaning that he may have a spy network.)
