* ExcaliburInTheRust: The Crimson Mantle looks very tattered (because most of its previous owners met a violent death), and yet it's a powerful artifact that can spell the doom of the world.



* ThroatLight: The first time he put on the Crimson Mantle, in ''Start of Darkness''.

* BeneathNotice: Because his coworkers think of him as a childish idiot, his [[CharacterDevelopment resolution to start thinking for himself]] and his resulting attempts to [[spoiler: subtly undermine their plans]] have gone not only unnoticed but ''un-looked-for''.

* TheBrute: He's a trump card for Xykon and it's easy to see why. He's terrifyingly strong and just as tough. When he tried to play a genuine game of "Who Can Hit the Lightest" with a strong paladin, his first move was a MegatonPunch that sent said paladin hurtling over the horizon.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the first story arc, he's occasionally shown with a fondness for death and evil that seems pretty OOC for the MITD we eventually come to know. In particular, see the first two panels of [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0117.html this early strip]].

* FingerPokeOfDoom: Him "trying to hit the lightest" or "stomping his foot" can cause incredible damage. With a single stomp, and probably not a very strong one, he caused a tremor that Haley and Belkar mistook for an ''earthquake''.

Redcloak's younger brother and, for the lack of

* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler:Dies telling her wights that she loves them and not understanding why they didn't love her in return. Gets this reaction from the Monster in the Darkness. While Redcloak [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing is visibly happy]], Xykon considers offing uppity minions a "cost of doing business" and the roaches are blasé, the [=MitD=] is upset about her dying.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''[=MiTD=]:''' I'm just really sad now, thinking about Tsukiko. She just wanted to be loved.]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Demon-Roach:''' So what? Who cares?]]\\
[[spoiler:'''[=MiTD=]:''' Exactly. That's why I'm sad.]]
* AnimateDead: Her main job for Team Evil is creating new soldiers. [[spoiler: She passes over Miko's corpse.]]
* BetterLivingThroughEvil: When confronted with selling out her civilization by Ho Thanh, she counters that she got a good price for it.
* BigBadWannabe: More like Dragon Wannabe -- she thinks she has what it takes to be Xykon's [[TheDragon Dragon]]. Unfortunately, the spot's already taken by Redcloak, who in fact had met him long before she had. [[spoiler:When the two throw down, he shows her exactly how outclassed she is.]]
* BullyingADragon: Despite him being a more powerful cleric than her and having more experience, she still fails to give Redcloak any respect whatsoever, seeing him as a "spineless coward squirming under Xykon's heel". [[spoiler:It didn't end well for her. Also see UnderestimatingBadassery. Though to be fair, Redcloak had been cultivating that image for decades.]]
* CommonMarySueTraits: Heterochromatic eyes, great beauty, skimpy clothing, unusually skilled for her young age, [[AwesomeMcCoolname Japanese name meaning "moon child"]], oppressed by a stuck-up society not understanding her greatness... check.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler:Life-drained completely by the wights she loved so much, and then devoured.]]
* DarkActionGirl: Her official job is reanimating corpses, but she can create the corpse itself just as easily.
* DarkChick: The only girl on Team Evil's roster of main characters, and her overall contribution to the plot, not to mention ThePlan, is fairly minimal.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Parodied. Since she thinks that the undead are the antithesis of the living, and that the living are all jerks, therefore the undead are caring and misunderstood -- and Xykon will eventually grow to love her. Even the ''[[TheDitz Monster in the Darkness]]'' tries to tell her that it doesn't work that way. Eventually Redcloak proves her wrong in a particularly cruel way [[spoiler:by killing her with her own beloved minions.]]
* DeathByIrony: In two ways: [[spoiler:first because she is drained to death and eaten by her beloved wights, and secondly she is killed by Redcloak (who she considered a spineless wimp) using nothing more than his Command Undead class feature and a ''Dispel Magic'' to counterspell her ''Shout''.]]
* DualityMotif: Tsukiko has a blue eye and an indigo eye. This reflects her dual-caster prestige class, the color of her aura when casting spells being blue for divine magic and indigo for arcane. As a joke, it carries over as a theme to her slippers too.
* EnergyBall: She uses a number of non-core "orb" spells (''Electric Orb'', ''Fire Orb'', ''Lesser Acid Orb'', ''Cold Orb'') in order to counter Haley's evasion skill.
* EverythingsBetterWithPlushies: Tsukiko sleeps with a Xykon plushie -- and yes, the fans started begging for one as soon as they saw it.
* {{Evil Sorcere|r}}ss: Necromancer, mystic, and a hard on for evil.
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler:"I love you all! I love you! I love you! Why don't... [-you love... me?-]"]]
* FatalFlaw: Her arrogance, pride, and [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter complete misunderstanding of people's true characters]]. [[spoiler:Specifically, all three of them lead her to gloat to Redcloak's face that she is going to expose his treachery to Xykon under the over-confident belief that he is too spineless to do anything to stop her, due to Xykon liking her. It also fools her into believing that her wights are children who would never hurt their "mommy" as opposed to easily-dominated drones who will instantly turn on her if someone who is also capable of controlling them overrides her orders.]]
* {{Flight}}: One of her abilities. Belkar thanks her for combining it with a short dress.
* FluffyTamer:
-->'''Tsukiko:''' ''[to a newly-created undead]'' Hello, little one. I'm your mommy.
* GirlishPigtails: Both for cuteness and immaturity.
* {{Goth}}: True to stereotype, she wears black and talks about her "dark allure". Haley (who had such a phase) mocks her for it.
* GraveRobbing: Two years experience as an intern graverobber on her resume.
* HaveYouToldAnyoneElse: [[spoiler:When she realizes that the Ritual doesn't do what Redcloak says it's supposed to, she goes to confront (and taunt) Redcloak about it ''before'' telling Xykon her suspicions. She believes that she'd be able to bully him into silence again or teleport to Xykon if things went bad. [[CharacterDeath That didn't work]].]]
* HealingHands: "Inflict Critical Wounds". More often than not she does this for the undead.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Her own wights drain her to death (and eat her corpse) after Redcloak steals control of them. It's also a DeathByIrony since it's a combination of her arrogance, lack of character judgement and belief that her undead "children" are people who won't hurt her that kills her.]]
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: A significant flaw of hers. She believes that the dead are better than the living [[InsaneTrollLogic because she thinks the living are all]] [[HumansAreBastards bastards]] [[InsaneTrollLogic and the dead are their exact opposites]]. She thinks that Xykon is an [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Edward Cullen-style]] paranormal romantic hero just waiting for the perfect girl (i.e. her) to "heal" him and she thinks that Redcloak is an ineffective spineless wimp who is just going to passively let her get away with absolutely everything [[spoiler:including outright informing Xykon of Redcloak's treachery. Redcloak brutally proves her wrong]] and Xykon doesn't really give a damn about her -- he can't even remember her name.
* HumansAreBastards: She believes this thoroughly and, in what may be an example of InsaneTrollLogic, uses it to justify her belief that [[DarkIsNotEvil the Undead are really nice creatures]], as they are "the antithesis of life". See [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0700.html "They Would Likely Both Disagree with That Sentiment"]] for the full conversation.
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Toward Xykon, who doesn't just ignore her sentiments but actively [[BrainBleach avoids thinking about them]] ('cause he's "not one of those disgusting biophiliacs").
* ILoveTheDead: Yes, she loves TheUndead. In that way. *wink*
* InsaneTrollLogic: Her "reasoning" behind preferring the undead to the living is so warped that even the Monster in the Darkness calls her out on it.
* IronicEcho: During her battle with Haley and Thanh, she uses both their weaknesses against them, causing her to nearly succeed in defeating them both. She also attempts to goad Belkar into performing a FaceHeelTurn, which almost succeeds as well. [[spoiler:Later on, Redcloak uses her weaknesses against her in order to destroy her once and for all.]]
* JustDesserts: [[spoiler:Ends up being eaten by the wights she created]].
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:She betrays Azure City for the reasons outlined under DarkIsNotEvil, and later tries to do the same to Redcloak, and eventually the latter commands her own undead minions to kill her, while explaining how deluded she was to think they were anything more than tools. She dies begging them to stop and wondering why they don't love her.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:After Redcloak uses her wights to level-drain her to death, he then instructs them to devour her corpse, thus preventing a resurrection.]]
* MakeMeWannaShout: The ''Shout'' spell.
* MisplacedKindergartenTeacher: Tsukiko acts like this to her undead minions. From her perspective they're only a few days old and need looking after. Consequently, the elite squad of wights is organized like they're on a school trip, [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0513.html complete with whistles and a buddy system.]]
* MistakenForGay: Her... flustered reaction to an AccidentalInnuendo by the Monster in the Darkness.
* NaiveNewcomer: A teenager who wanted in on the latest evil organization.
* {{Necromancer}}: Animates the dead as her main job and chief passion.
* NightmareFetishist: More literally than most; ''Xykon'' is her definition of "a hottie".
* PantyShot:
-->'''Belkar:''' Oh, and hey, Tsukiko. On behalf of all the men in the city: Thanks for [[SkirtsAndLadders wearing a short skirt while flying]]. You've given me a lot to think about. Heh.
* ParodySue: She has many Mary Sue traits and acts as if in her own self-insert fanfic. It's all to better point out how WrongGenreSavvy she truly is.
* PerkyFemaleMinion: Far more upbeat and happy than her evil coworkers or boss.
* PetTheDog: The [[AFatherToHisMen motherly]] way she treats her creations. (Given her [[ILoveTheDead proclivities]], [[ParentalIncest that may be even squickier]].)
* PrestigeClass: [[TheRedMage Mystic Theurge]].
* TheQuisling: She sells out her entire city to Xykon and the goblins, and is thoroughly unapologetic about it. [[spoiler:Her comeuppance is suitably horrible.]]
-->'''Thanh:''' You have sold out our entire civilization to outsiders!\\
'''Tsukiko:''' Yeah, but at least I got a good price for it. What can I say? It was a seller's market.
* TheRedMage: Being multiclassed allows her to cast both divine and arcane spells which gives her a wider breadth of casting ability and spellcraft knowledge than a single-classed character would have, but neither of which are at the depth a single-classed caster has.
* ReligionIsMagic: Due to her levels in cleric, Tsukiko possesses divine magic.
* SanityHasAdvantages: As a Mystic Theurge, Tsukiko has high scores of both Intelligence and Wisdom. However, she doesn't benefit of those as much as she should... because she's also utterly insane, leading her to make foolish mistakes, [[spoiler:like underestimating Redcloak.]]
* SmarterThanYouLook: Don't let the pigtails, her love for the undead or her Xykon doll fool you: she's dangerous. She found some creative ways to counter Haley's evasion, and unlike Xykon she discovered that [[spoiler:Redcloak's ritual doesn't have the intended purpose that he led them to believe it had (although with some unexpected help from the [=MitD=]).]]
-->'''Tsukiko:''' I was expelled from some of the best wizard academies in the South, you know.
* SmugSnake: She orders Redcloak to do as she says, justifying her demand as an order from Xykon, as the basis of her first conversation with him (remembering that, up to and beyond this point, Redcloak is Xykon's second-in-command).
* TheStarscream: Not towards Xykon, but Redcloak. In fact, her behavior sometimes may resemble the TropeNamer -- despite that Redcloak is higher than her in the hierarchy, she constantly disrespects him, tries to undercut his authority and mocks him, [[spoiler:and her attempt at taking his position backfires spectacularly. Too bad for her that Redcloak doesn't have any tolerance for betrayal]].
* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: When you think about it, she acts like she's the heroine of one of those ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''-esque books, where evil creatures are really NotEvilJustMisunderstood and Xykon is [[YouSexyBeast this perfect guy]] whose heart she is destined to win at the end. [[spoiler:Suffice to say, she's incredibly wrong about this, and finds out the hard way.]]
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:She thought that Redcloak would stay idle while she crushed his decades-long plan, that gloating about how she were going to usurp his place in front of him was a smart move, and didn't make sure that his personal sanctum wasn't barred against teleportation despite the fact that he's big on pre-planning. Redcloak himself lampshades it:]]

So he doesn't approve of ThePlan, at least later on. [[spoiler:Soon before his death, he gives a brutal deconstruction of ThePlan to Redcloak's face, calling it spite and not understanding why they didn't love her in return.

Right-Eye just really sad now, thinking asks, why doesn't Redcloak help?

about Tsukiko. She just wanted to be loved.]]\\

* AnAxeToGrind: His favorite weapon is the axe. As he himself states, when they were young and their mother distributed chores, he always picked chopping wood. [[spoiler:And then he demonstrates on a treant.
]]
* AnimateDead: Her main job BadassPacifist: The amount of achievements he accomplished without violence eclipses his violent ones, and arguably those of Redcloak as well. Redcloak is at least a 17th level cleric, but Right-Eye managed to create a huge goblin settlement peacefully coexisting with humans, without the help of Xykon or a hobgoblin army. Also, unlike Redcloak, he never threw lives away, or constantly endangered his species.
* TheBrute: Complicated case. Before Xykon, he was more or less equal with his brother. After Xykon's lichification, he was pushed into the "evil strongman" role because he didn't have Redcloak's intelligence.
* CallingTheOldManOut: A variant, when Right-Eye lashes out at his older brother, who has been the oldest family member in his life. Overlaps with ArmorPiercingQuestion.
-->'''Redcloak''' The risk to all of us is too great if you fail.\\
'''Right-Eye''' Shouldn't you make sure I don't fail, then?\\
'''Redcloak''' I'm sorry, I can't let you gamble with the lives of so many goblins.\\
'''Right-Eye:''' I can't believe you! You hypocrite! All you care about is your stupid Plan!\\
'''Redcloak''' My Plan is
for the betterment of the goblin people!\\
'''Right-Eye''' You don't even know the goblin people. You think this is what they want? To be ruled by an insane lich? To be killed by poor planning, or mood swings? ... You don't even know what you're trying to better, because you don't know what it's like to not serve an undead overlord, or a petty spiteful god.
* CharacterDevelopment: Spells this out for Redcloak, who he thinks needs some in spades:
-->'''Right-Eye:''' Life is about growing -- growing older, growing wiser, growing closer to your loved ones. But you, you're frozen in time. You're still the same angry kid who took that artifact off of your master's corpse that day.
* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler:He abandons
Team Evil is creating new soldiers. [[spoiler: She passes over Miko's corpse.because he feels it has sunken into ForTheEvulz depravity and lost touch with the original goal of bettering the goblins. He has a very good point.]]
* BetterLivingThroughEvil: When confronted with selling out her civilization by Ho Thanh, she counters that she got a good price for it.
* BigBadWannabe: More like Dragon Wannabe -- she thinks she has what it takes
DyingDeclarationOfHate: [[spoiler:Delivered an unusually subtle and downplayed example to his brother as he lay dying. He considers the title of "Redcloak" to be Xykon's [[TheDragon Dragon]]. Unfortunately, demeaning, essentially a slave name. So when the spot's already taken by Redcloak, who in fact had met him long before she had. [[spoiler:When final exchange between the two throw down, brothers, is Redcloak saying "Goodbye, brother." and Right-Eye responding with "Goodbye... ''Redcloak''..." there's a definite StealthInsult in his final words. And Redcloak may not have even noticed because he shows her exactly how outclassed she is.was so used to being called Redcloak at that point.]]
* BullyingADragon: Despite EyepatchOfPower: He lost an eye during the paladin attack that wiped out their village, and has always worn an eyepatch since then.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler:He tried to be a family man but Xykon vetoed that and made
him being a more powerful cleric than her and having more experience, she still fails be an evil minion again. And when it looked like he was going to give kill Xykon, Redcloak any respect whatsoever, seeing him as a "spineless coward squirming under Xykon's heel". [[spoiler:It didn't end well for her. Also see UnderestimatingBadassery. Though to be fair, Redcloak had been cultivating that image for decades.vetoed ''that'' too.]]
* CommonMarySueTraits: Heterochromatic eyes, great beauty, skimpy clothing, unusually skilled FamousLastWords: [[spoiler:"[[IHaveNoSon Goodbye... Redcloak]]."]]
* FatalFlaw: His impulsiveness, according to Redcloak. From what we see of him during the comic, it usually (with one very, very, VERY big exception) works out
for her young age, [[AwesomeMcCoolname Japanese name meaning "moon child"]], oppressed by a stuck-up society not understanding her greatness... check.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler:Life-drained completely by
the wights she loved so much, better for him. [[spoiler:Ironically, the first well-formulated plan we see him make kills him, although it was no fault of his own.]] Of course, since this is Redcloak we're talking about...
* {{Foil}}: Could be seen as this to Redcloak. Redcloak is a caster, Right-Eye is a melee fighter. Redcloak is a planner, Right-Eye is impulsive. Right-Eye was the TokenGoodTeammate, while Redcloak is well intentioned, but still Evil. Right-Eye lived roughly 50 years, the average goblin's lifespan,
and then devoured.Redcloak is eternally a teenager due to the Crimson Mantle. Right-Eye died trying to kill Xykon, and Redcloak works with him, [[spoiler:at least, for now...]]
* DarkActionGirl: Her official job is reanimating corpses, but she can create GeniusBruiser: In his later years he develops a tactical mindset to complement his muscles. {{Justified|Trope}} because growing older gives you mental ability score bonuses in ''D&D''.
* GoneHorriblyWrong: He was
the corpse itself just as easily.
* DarkChick: The only girl on Team Evil's roster of main characters, and her overall contribution to the plot, not to mention ThePlan, is fairly minimal.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Parodied. Since she thinks that the undead are the antithesis of the living, and that the living are all jerks, therefore the undead are caring and misunderstood -- and
one who suggested allying with Xykon will eventually grow to love her. Even the ''[[TheDitz Monster in the Darkness]]'' tries first place, although to tell her his credit he realized what a bad idea it was much sooner than Redcloak.
* IHaveNoSon: Rather, I Have no Brother -- [[spoiler:Right-Eye's last words aren't a sad farewell to his brother or anything like that. It's his rejection
that it doesn't work that way. Eventually Redcloak proves her wrong in a particularly cruel way [[spoiler:by killing her with her own beloved minions.is his brother at all by calling him "Redcloak" where previously he always called him "brother".]]
* DeathByIrony: In two ways: [[spoiler:first because she is drained to death InTheHood: To meet with Eugene and eaten by her beloved wights, and secondly she is killed by hide his identity.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:When
Redcloak (who she considered a spineless wimp) using nothing more than killed him, he planned on burying him. Thus, the only person with any motive to revive him is not interested. Since his Command Undead class feature body was reanimated for a guard in Dorukan's Dungeon, it was probably destroyed when the gate exploded. Although, you don't see any zombie with a broken arm, or any other distinctions, so who knows, maybe Redcloak ended up burying him after all. The point is, he's dead and a ''Dispel Magic'' to counterspell her ''Shout''.staying dead.]]
* DualityMotif: Tsukiko has a blue eye and an indigo eye. This reflects her dual-caster prestige class, the color of her aura when casting spells being blue for divine magic and indigo for arcane. As a joke, it carries over as a theme to her slippers too.
* EnergyBall: She uses a number of non-core "orb" spells (''Electric Orb'', ''Fire Orb'', ''Lesser Acid Orb'', ''Cold Orb'') in order to counter Haley's evasion skill.
* EverythingsBetterWithPlushies: Tsukiko sleeps
KnowWhenToFoldEm: Unlike Redcloak. Especially noticeable with a his refusal to keep investing in Xykon, even though ''he'' suggested allying with Xykon plushie -- and yes, in the fans started begging first place.
* TheMoralityMortalityEquation: He's ultimately the victim of this. Redcloak can't die because it's a prequel, so his brother ends up paying
for one as soon as they saw it.
* {{Evil Sorcere|r}}ss: Necromancer, mystic, and a hard on for
their evilness instead. Only Right-Eye isn't evil, so he ended up dying due to someone else's evil.
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler:"I love you all! I love you! I love you! Why don't... [-you love... me?-]"]]
* FatalFlaw: Her arrogance, pride, and [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter complete misunderstanding of people's true characters]]. [[spoiler:Specifically, all three of them lead her to gloat to Redcloak's face that she is going to expose
OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Just like Redcloak, his treachery to Xykon under the over-confident belief that he real name is too spineless to do anything to stop her, due to Xykon liking her. It also fools her into believing that her wights are children who would never hurt their "mommy" as opposed to easily-dominated drones who will instantly turn on her if someone who is also capable of controlling them overrides her orders.]]
revealed.
* {{Flight}}: One of her abilities. Belkar thanks her for combining it PointyEars: As with a short dress.all goblinoids.
* PosthumousCharacter: He's dead by the main narrative.

* FluffyTamer:
-->'''Tsukiko:''' ''[to a newly-created undead]'' Hello, little one. I'm your mommy.
* GirlishPigtails: Both for cuteness and immaturity.
RedOniBlueOni: Plays the role of the impulsive, emotional red oni to his brother's blue.
* {{Goth}}: True to stereotype, she wears black ScaryTeeth: The ridiculous amount of sharp things in his mouth; shown off when angry.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Pulled it on ThePlan,
and talks about her "dark allure". Haley (who had such a phase) mocks her for it.
* GraveRobbing: Two years experience as an intern graverobber on her resume.
* HaveYouToldAnyoneElse: [[spoiler:When she realizes that the Ritual doesn't do what
by extension Redcloak says it's supposed to, she goes and Xykon. It worked for eighteen years too, and he was successful enough to confront (and taunt) create a peaceful goblin settlement that lived alongside humans, until Xykon stumbled across him by accident and enslaved him and his entire village.
* TokenGoodTeammate: To Team Evil. While it isn't quite crossing the MoralEventHorizon, his death marks a major IgnoredEpiphany for Redcloak.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: His simple idea of recruiting Xykon had terrible, terrible consequences. If not for that one moment, Xykon probably never would have heard of the Snarl, never had the brains to become a lich on his own, and simply continued his acts of petty evil until he died and went to the Lower Planes without ever becoming the apocalyptic threat he is today.
* WalkingSpoiler: For a prequel comic, Right-Eye reveals a massive amount about
Redcloak about it ''before'' telling Xykon her suspicions. She believes that she'd be able to bully him into silence again or teleport to Xykon if things went bad. [[CharacterDeath That didn't work]].]]
* HealingHands: "Inflict Critical Wounds". More often than not she does this for the undead.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Her own wights drain her to death (and eat her corpse) after Redcloak steals control of them. It's also a DeathByIrony since it's a combination of her arrogance, lack of character judgement
and belief that her undead "children" are people who won't hurt her that kills her.]]
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: A significant flaw of hers. She believes that the dead are better than the living [[InsaneTrollLogic because she thinks the living are all]] [[HumansAreBastards bastards]] [[InsaneTrollLogic and the dead are their exact opposites]]. She thinks that Xykon is an [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Edward Cullen-style]] paranormal romantic hero just waiting for the perfect girl (i.e. her) to "heal" him and she thinks that Redcloak is an ineffective spineless wimp who is just going to passively let her get away with absolutely everything [[spoiler:including outright informing Xykon of Redcloak's treachery. Redcloak brutally proves her wrong]] and Xykon doesn't really give a damn about her -- he can't even remember her name.
* HumansAreBastards: She believes this thoroughly and, in what may be an example of InsaneTrollLogic, uses it to justify her belief that [[DarkIsNotEvil the Undead are really nice creatures]], as they are "the antithesis of life". See [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0700.html "They Would Likely Both Disagree with That Sentiment"]] for the full conversation.
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Toward Xykon, who doesn't just ignore her sentiments but actively [[BrainBleach avoids thinking about them]] ('cause he's "not one of those disgusting biophiliacs").
* ILoveTheDead: Yes, she loves TheUndead. In that way. *wink*
* InsaneTrollLogic: Her "reasoning" behind preferring the undead to the living is so warped that even the Monster in the Darkness calls her out on it.
* IronicEcho: During her battle with Haley and Thanh, she uses both their weaknesses against them, causing her to nearly succeed in defeating them both. She also attempts to goad Belkar into performing a FaceHeelTurn, which almost succeeds as well. [[spoiler:Later on, Redcloak uses her weaknesses against her in order to destroy her once and for all.]]
* JustDesserts: [[spoiler:Ends up being eaten by the wights she created]].
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:She betrays Azure City for the reasons outlined under DarkIsNotEvil, and later tries to do the same to Redcloak, and eventually the latter commands her own undead minions to kill her, while explaining how deluded she was to think they were anything more than tools. She dies begging them to stop and wondering why they don't love her.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:After Redcloak uses her wights to level-drain her to death, he then instructs them to devour her corpse, thus preventing a resurrection.]]
* MakeMeWannaShout: The ''Shout'' spell.
* MisplacedKindergartenTeacher: Tsukiko acts like this to her undead minions. From her perspective they're only a few days old and need looking after. Consequently, the elite squad of wights is organized like they're on a school trip, [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0513.html complete with whistles and a buddy system.]]
* MistakenForGay: Her... flustered reaction to an AccidentalInnuendo by the Monster in the Darkness.
* NaiveNewcomer: A teenager who wanted in on the latest evil organization.
* {{Necromancer}}: Animates the dead as her main job and chief passion.
* NightmareFetishist: More literally than most; ''Xykon'' is her definition of "a hottie".
* PantyShot:
-->'''Belkar:''' Oh, and hey, Tsukiko. On behalf of all the men in the city: Thanks for [[SkirtsAndLadders wearing a short skirt while flying]]. You've given me a lot to think about. Heh.
* ParodySue: She has many Mary Sue traits and acts as if in her own self-insert fanfic. It's all to better point out how WrongGenreSavvy she truly is.
* PerkyFemaleMinion: Far more upbeat and happy than her evil coworkers or boss.
* PetTheDog: The [[AFatherToHisMen motherly]] way she treats her creations. (Given her [[ILoveTheDead proclivities]], [[ParentalIncest that may be even squickier]].)
* PrestigeClass: [[TheRedMage Mystic Theurge]].
* TheQuisling: She sells out her entire city to Xykon and the goblins, and is thoroughly unapologetic about it. [[spoiler:Her comeuppance is suitably horrible.]]
-->'''Thanh:''' You have sold out our entire civilization to outsiders!\\
'''Tsukiko:''' Yeah, but at least I got a good price for it. What can I say? It was a seller's market.
* TheRedMage: Being multiclassed allows her to cast both divine and arcane spells which gives her a wider breadth of casting ability and spellcraft knowledge than a single-classed character would have, but neither of which are at the depth a single-classed caster has.
* ReligionIsMagic: Due to her levels in cleric, Tsukiko possesses divine magic.
* SanityHasAdvantages: As a Mystic Theurge, Tsukiko has high scores of both Intelligence and Wisdom. However, she doesn't benefit of those as much as she should... because she's also utterly insane, leading her to make foolish mistakes, [[spoiler:like underestimating Redcloak.]]
* SmarterThanYouLook: Don't let the pigtails, her love for the undead or her Xykon doll fool you: she's dangerous. She found some creative ways to counter Haley's evasion, and unlike Xykon she discovered that [[spoiler:Redcloak's ritual doesn't have the intended purpose that he led them to believe it had (although with some unexpected help from the [=MitD=]).]]
-->'''Tsukiko:''' I was expelled from some of the best wizard academies in the South, you know.
* SmugSnake: She orders Redcloak to do as she says, justifying her demand as an order from Xykon, as the basis of her first conversation with him (remembering that, up to and beyond this point, Redcloak is
Xykon's second-in-command).
* TheStarscream: Not towards Xykon, but Redcloak. In fact, her behavior sometimes may resemble the TropeNamer -- despite that Redcloak is higher than her
agendas, Team Evil's relationship with "The Thing in the hierarchy, she constantly disrespects him, tries to undercut his authority and mocks him, [[spoiler:and her attempt at taking his position backfires spectacularly. Too bad for her that Redcloak doesn't have any tolerance for betrayal]].
* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: When you think about it, she acts like she's the heroine of one of those ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''-esque books, where evil creatures are really NotEvilJustMisunderstood and Xykon is [[YouSexyBeast this perfect guy]] whose heart she is destined to win at the end. [[spoiler:Suffice to say, she's incredibly wrong about this, and finds out the hard way.]]
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:She thought that Redcloak would stay idle while she crushed his decades-long plan, that gloating about how she were going to usurp his place
Box," as well as a possible ChekhovsGun in front of him was a smart move, and didn't make sure that his personal sanctum wasn't barred against teleportation despite the fact that he's big on pre-planning. Redcloak himself lampshades it:]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Redcloak:''' Because, let's be clear: if I tolerated your humiliating attempts to undercut my authority before, it was only because killing you would've upset the delicate puppet strings upon which "Lord Xykon" unknowingly dances. But if you're going to stand here, and tell me that you'll expose one of those strings to him? If you're going to be THAT stupid? There can only be one rational response to that.]]

* AntiMagic: The Death Knight has some serious Spell Resistance, to Vaarsuvius's great annoyance.
* BadassBoast:
-->'''Death Knight:''' THEN LET THE REAPING BEGIN!!
* BattleStrip: The Death Knight rips its Xykon robe, revealing its heavy armor, before charging at the breach.
* BloodKnight: The Death Knight. See its BadassBoast. [[spoiler:It cuts his way through four giant soldiers, blasts through several normal soldiers, kills General Chang, and nearly defeats a weakened V.]]
* {{Body Double}}s: Skeleton Doubles at least. Redcloak made them for the "Shell Game" at Azure City. He didn't actually do anything to make them look like Xykon, though, since they were all skeletons. He just gave them robes and called it a day.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: The pendants Redcloak gave them so he could tell them apart; dark green for the Death Knight, purple for the Huecuva and orange for the Eye of Fear and Flame.

* BetterLivingThroughEvil: When confronted with selling out her civilization by Ho Thanh, she counters that she got a good price for it.
* BigBadWannabe: More like Dragon Wannabe -- she thinks she has what it takes to be Xykon's [[TheDragon Dragon]]. Unfortunately, the spot's already taken by Redcloak, who in fact had met him long before she had. [[spoiler:When the two throw down,
he was OHKO by shows her exactly how outclassed she is.]]
* BullyingADragon: Despite him being
a paladin (technically, an ex-paladin more powerful cleric than her and Creator/ChuckNorris incarnate, but having more experience, she still fails to give Redcloak any respect whatsoever, seeing him as a "spineless coward squirming under Xykon's heel". [[spoiler:It didn't end well for her. Also see UnderestimatingBadassery. Though to be fair, Redcloak had been cultivating that image for decades.]]
* CommonMarySueTraits: Heterochromatic eyes, great beauty, skimpy clothing, unusually skilled for her young age, [[AwesomeMcCoolname Japanese name meaning "moon child"]], oppressed by a stuck-up society not understanding her greatness... check.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler:Life-drained completely by the wights she loved so much, and then devoured.]]
* DarkActionGirl: Her official job is reanimating corpses, but she can create the corpse itself just as easily.
* DarkChick: The only girl on Team Evil's roster of main characters, and her overall contribution to the plot, not to mention ThePlan, is fairly minimal.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Parodied. Since she thinks that the undead are the antithesis of the living, and that the living are all jerks, therefore the undead are caring and misunderstood
-- and Xykon will eventually grow to love her. Even the ''[[TheDitz Monster in the Darkness]]'' tries to tell her that it doesn't work that way. Eventually Redcloak proves her wrong in a particularly cruel way [[spoiler:by killing her with her own beloved minions.]]
* DeathByIrony: In two ways: [[spoiler:first because she is drained to death and eaten by her beloved wights, and secondly she is killed by Redcloak (who she considered a spineless wimp) using nothing more than his Command Undead class feature and a ''Dispel Magic'' to counterspell her ''Shout''.]]
* DualityMotif: Tsukiko has a blue eye and an indigo eye. This reflects her dual-caster prestige class, the color of her aura when casting spells being blue for divine magic and indigo for arcane. As a joke, it carries over as a theme to her slippers too.
* EnergyBall: She uses a number of non-core "orb" spells (''Electric Orb'', ''Fire Orb'', ''Lesser Acid Orb'', ''Cold Orb'') in order to counter Haley's evasion skill.
* EverythingsBetterWithPlushies: Tsukiko sleeps with a Xykon plushie -- and yes, the fans started begging for one as soon as they saw it.
* {{Evil Sorcere|r}}ss: Necromancer, mystic, and a hard on for evil.
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler:"I love you all! I love you! I love you! Why don't... [-you love... me?-]"]]
* FatalFlaw: Her arrogance, pride, and [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter complete misunderstanding of people's true characters]]. [[spoiler:Specifically, all three of them lead her to gloat to Redcloak's face that she is going to expose his treachery to Xykon under the over-confident belief that he is too spineless to do anything to stop her, due to Xykon liking her. It also fools her into believing that her wights are children who would never hurt their "mommy" as opposed to easily-dominated drones who will instantly turn on her if someone who is also capable of controlling them overrides her orders.]]
* {{Flight}}: One of her abilities. Belkar thanks her for combining it with a short dress.
* FluffyTamer:
-->'''Tsukiko:''' ''[to a newly-created undead]'' Hello, little one. I'm your mommy.
* GirlishPigtails: Both for cuteness and immaturity.
* {{Goth}}: True to stereotype, she wears black and talks about her "dark allure". Haley (who had such a phase) mocks her for it.
* GraveRobbing: Two years experience as an intern graverobber on her resume.
* HaveYouToldAnyoneElse: [[spoiler:When she realizes that the Ritual doesn't do what Redcloak says it's supposed to, she goes to confront (and taunt) Redcloak about it ''before'' telling Xykon her suspicions. She believes that she'd be able to bully him into silence again or teleport to Xykon if things went bad. [[CharacterDeath That didn't work]].]]
* HealingHands: "Inflict Critical Wounds". More often than not she does this for the undead.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Her own wights drain her to death (and eat her corpse) after Redcloak steals control of them. It's also a DeathByIrony since it's a combination of her arrogance, lack of character judgement and belief that her undead "children" are people who won't hurt her that kills her.]]
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: A significant flaw of hers. She believes that the dead are better than the living [[InsaneTrollLogic because she thinks the living are all]] [[HumansAreBastards bastards]] [[InsaneTrollLogic and the dead are their exact opposites]]. She thinks that Xykon is an [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Edward Cullen-style]] paranormal romantic hero just waiting for the perfect girl (i.e. her) to "heal" him and she thinks that Redcloak is an ineffective spineless wimp who is just going to passively let her get away with absolutely everything [[spoiler:including outright informing Xykon of Redcloak's treachery. Redcloak brutally proves her wrong]] and Xykon doesn't really give a damn about her -- he can't even remember her name.
* HumansAreBastards: She believes this thoroughly and, in what
may become a RunningGag). While TemptingFate, be an example of InsaneTrollLogic, uses it to boot, justify her belief that [[DarkIsNotEvil the first time:
-->'''Jirix:'''
Undead are really nice creatures]], as they are "the antithesis of life". See [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0461.com/comics/oots0700.html Trust me, we're "They Would Likely Both Disagree with That Sentiment"]] for the full conversation.
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Toward Xykon, who doesn't just ignore her sentiments but actively [[BrainBleach avoids thinking about them]] ('cause he's "not one of those disgusting biophiliacs").
* ILoveTheDead: Yes, she loves TheUndead. In that way. *wink*
* InsaneTrollLogic: Her "reasoning" behind preferring the undead to the living is so warped that even the Monster in the Darkness calls her out on it.
* IronicEcho: During her battle with Haley and Thanh, she uses both their weaknesses against them, causing her to nearly succeed in defeating them both. She also attempts to goad Belkar into performing

* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:She betrays Azure City for the reasons outlined under DarkIsNotEvil, and later tries to do the same to Redcloak, and eventually the latter commands her own undead minions to kill her, while explaining how deluded she was to think they were anything more than tools. She dies begging them to stop and wondering why they don't love her.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:After Redcloak uses her wights to level-drain her to death, he then instructs them to devour her corpse, thus preventing a resurrection.]]
* MakeMeWannaShout: The ''Shout'' spell.
* MisplacedKindergartenTeacher: Tsukiko acts like this to her undead minions. From her perspective they're only a few days old and need looking after. Consequently, the elite squad of wights is organized like they're on a school trip, [[http://www.

* PointyEars: As with

* PerkyFemaleMinion: Far more upbeat and happy than her evil coworkers or boss.
* PetTheDog: The [[AFatherToHisMen motherly]] way she treats her creations. (Given her [[ILoveTheDead proclivities]], [[ParentalIncest that may be even squickier]].)

* ReligionIsMagic: Due to her levels in cleric, Tsukiko possesses divine magic.
* SanityHasAdvantages: As a Mystic Theurge, Tsukiko has high scores of both Intelligence

* TurnUndead: Like Redcloak above, he attempts using negative energy to turn SmarterThanYouLook: Don't let the ghost-martyrs. However, being lower level it pigtails, her love for the undead or her Xykon doll fool you: she's dangerous. She found some creative ways to counter Haley's evasion, and unlike Xykon she discovered that [[spoiler:Redcloak's ritual doesn't work since [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0459.html he can't overcome have the consecration intended purpose that he led them to believe it had (although with some unexpected help from the [=MitD=]).]]

* VillainousFriendship: He and SmugSnake: She orders Redcloak genuinely respect each other, to do as she says, justifying her demand as an order from Xykon, as the basis of her first conversation with him (remembering that, up to and he beyond this point, Redcloak is seen Xykon's second-in-command).
* TheStarscream: Not towards Xykon, but Redcloak. In fact, her behavior sometimes may resemble the TropeNamer -- despite that Redcloak is higher than her in the hierarchy, she constantly disrespects him, tries to undercut his authority and mocks him, [[spoiler:and her attempt at
taking bets on O-chul's battle with a shark.
* TheWatson: Jirix serves largely
his position backfires spectacularly. Too bad for Redcloak's exposition on things he her that Redcloak doesn't have any tolerance for betrayal]].
* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: When you think about it, she acts like she's the heroine of one of those ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''-esque books, where evil creatures are really NotEvilJustMisunderstood and Xykon is [[YouSexyBeast this perfect guy]] whose heart she is destined to win at the end. [[spoiler:Suffice to say, she's incredibly wrong about this, and finds out the hard way.]]
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:She thought that Redcloak
would not be able to talk stay idle while she crushed his decades-long plan, that gloating about how she were going to usurp his place in front of him was a smart move, and didn't make sure that his personal sanctum wasn't barred against teleportation despite the other members fact that he's big on pre-planning. Redcloak himself lampshades it:]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Redcloak:''' Because, let's be clear: if I tolerated your humiliating attempts to undercut my authority before, it was only because killing you would've upset the delicate puppet strings upon which "Lord Xykon" unknowingly dances. But if you're going to stand here, and tell me that you'll expose one of those strings to him? If you're going to be THAT stupid? There can only be one rational response to that.]]
* TokenHuman: She is the only human member
of Team Evil.Evil, unless you include Xykon, who formerly was a human.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: [[spoiler:She probably thought that, if nothing else, that between her wights, her ability to teleport and her huge spell selection, she could escape Redcloak before he could do anything to stop her -- which is why she spent so much time taunting Redcloak and spelling out her plans. Unfortunately, Redcloak nullified all her advantages in short order (he had warded his sanctum against teleportation apparently for some time, used Control Undead on her wights, having them grapple her, and counterspelling the few spells that she could cast while grappled) and Tsukiko soon found herself in way over her head.]]
* WeakButSkilled: While she has both arcane and divine spells, she doesn't have any of the bonus feats, or the same spell level as she would have if she focused on just one.
* WrongGenreSavvy: She thinks she's the MarySue heroine of a ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''-style supernatural romance. Oh, how wrong she is.

A chimera sent by Xykon to kill the Order of the Stick early on in their adventures. They were jokingly supposed to be a recurring plot-relevant villain, but Belkar killed them before they could finish their "I'll be back!" speech.

* BreathWeapon: Their dragon head breathes fire.
* MeaningfulName: Their name indicates the sound the three heads make upon dying.
* MixAndMatchCritters: As normal for a chimera, Trigak is a three-headed monster that is one-third lion, one-third goat, and one-third dragon.
* MultipleHeadCase: Each of their heads appears to think independently (they use plural pronouns like "we" to refer to themselves), though they don't fight amongst themselves.
* PsychoForHire: Xykon describes them as "discount mercenaries"
* StarterVillain: Trigak is the first villain with a name that the Order goes up against.

[[caption-width-right:150:Left to right: death knight, huecuva, Eye of Fear and Flame.]]

->'''[=MitD=]:''' How did you get them to look exactly like Xykon?\\
'''Redcloak:''' I didn't. They're human skeletons. I put a blue robe on them and called it a night.\\
Heck, I had to put those colored pendants on them just to tell them apart.

Three skeletal undead -- a Death Knight, a Huecuva, and an Eye of Fear and Flame -- created by Redcloak
for the lack battle of a better term, conscience. While Right-Eye only appears in Azure City, to sow confusion within the ''Start of Darkness'' prequel and doesn't survive enemy ranks by having them look identical to be in the main story, he's one of the original founders of Team Evil and very important to Redcloak's backstory.Xykon.



* AntiVillain: More so than his brother because he's more focused on living a happy domestic life, focused more on bringing his people up to the level of the humans, rather than tearing humans down. So he doesn't approve of ThePlan, at least later on. [[spoiler:Soon before his death, he gives a brutal deconstruction of ThePlan to Redcloak's face, calling it spite and pettiness from two beings who are too focused on revenge to know and do what is truly best for the goblin people. And judging by how many goblins Redcloak has caused the deaths of, he may have been right.]]
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: Redcloak says he can't let Right-Eye gamble with the lives of so many goblins in a gambit to kill Xykon. Right-Eye just asks, why doesn't Redcloak help? This reveals Redcloak's true motivation for not wanting to kill Xykon -- not out of fearing for the lives of his fellow goblins, but out of an unwillingness to admit how he screwed up and got goblins killed by his deal with Xykon.
* ArmorPiercingResponse: His reply to Redcloak's query about whether he'd considered himself responsible for their sister's death.
* AnAxeToGrind: His favorite weapon is the axe. As he himself states, when they were young and their mother distributed chores, he always picked chopping wood. [[spoiler:And then he demonstrates on a treant.]]
* BadassPacifist: The amount of achievements he accomplished without violence eclipses his violent ones, and arguably those of Redcloak as well. Redcloak is at least a 17th level cleric, but Right-Eye managed to create a huge goblin settlement peacefully coexisting with humans, without the help of Xykon or a hobgoblin army. Also, unlike Redcloak, he never threw lives away, or constantly endangered his species.
* TheBrute: Complicated case. Before Xykon, he was more or less equal with his brother. After Xykon's lichification, he was pushed into the "evil strongman" role because he didn't have Redcloak's intelligence.
* CallingTheOldManOut: A variant, when Right-Eye lashes out at his older brother, who has been the oldest family member in his life. Overlaps with ArmorPiercingQuestion.
-->'''Redcloak''' The risk to all of us is too great if you fail.\\
'''Right-Eye''' Shouldn't you make sure I don't fail, then?\\
'''Redcloak''' I'm sorry, I can't let you gamble with the lives of so many goblins.\\
'''Right-Eye:''' I can't believe you! You hypocrite! All you care about is your stupid Plan!\\
'''Redcloak''' My Plan is for the betterment of the goblin people!\\
'''Right-Eye''' You don't even know the goblin people. You think this is what they want? To be ruled by an insane lich? To be killed by poor planning, or mood swings? ... You don't even know what you're trying to better, because you don't know what it's like to not serve an undead overlord, or a petty spiteful god.
* CharacterDevelopment: Spells this out for Redcloak, who he thinks needs some in spades:
-->'''Right-Eye:''' Life is about growing -- growing older, growing wiser, growing closer to your loved ones. But you, you're frozen in time. You're still the same angry kid who took that artifact off of your master's corpse that day.
* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler:He abandons Team Evil because he feels it has sunken into ForTheEvulz depravity and lost touch with the original goal of bettering the goblins. He has a very good point.]]
* DyingDeclarationOfHate: [[spoiler:Delivered an unusually subtle and downplayed example to his brother as he lay dying. He considers the title of "Redcloak" to be demeaning, essentially a slave name. So when the final exchange between the brothers, is Redcloak saying "Goodbye, brother." and Right-Eye responding with "Goodbye... ''Redcloak''..." there's a definite StealthInsult in his final words. And Redcloak may not have even noticed because he was so used to being called Redcloak at that point.]]
* EyepatchOfPower: He lost an eye during the paladin attack that wiped out their village, and has always worn an eyepatch since then.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler:He tried to be a family man but Xykon vetoed that and made him be an evil minion again. And when it looked like he was going to kill Xykon, Redcloak vetoed ''that'' too.]]
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler:"[[IHaveNoSon Goodbye... Redcloak]]."]]
* FatalFlaw: His impulsiveness, according to Redcloak. From what we see of him during the comic, it usually (with one very, very, VERY big exception) works out for the better for him. [[spoiler:Ironically, the first well-formulated plan we see him make kills him, although it was no fault of his own.]] Of course, since this is Redcloak we're talking about...
* {{Foil}}: Could be seen as this to Redcloak. Redcloak is a caster, Right-Eye is a melee fighter. Redcloak is a planner, Right-Eye is impulsive. Right-Eye was the TokenGoodTeammate, while Redcloak is well intentioned, but still Evil. Right-Eye lived roughly 50 years, the average goblin's lifespan, and Redcloak is eternally a teenager due to the Crimson Mantle. Right-Eye died trying to kill Xykon, and Redcloak works with him, [[spoiler:at least, for now...]]
* GeniusBruiser: In his later years he develops a tactical mindset to complement his muscles. {{Justified|Trope}} because growing older gives you mental ability score bonuses in ''D&D''.
* GoneHorriblyWrong: He was the one who suggested allying with Xykon in the first place, although to his credit he realized what a bad idea it was much sooner than Redcloak.
* IHaveNoSon: Rather, I Have no Brother -- [[spoiler:Right-Eye's last words aren't a sad farewell to his brother or anything like that. It's his rejection that Redcloak is his brother at all by calling him "Redcloak" where previously he always called him "brother".]]
* InTheHood: To meet with Eugene and hide his identity.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:When Redcloak killed him, he planned on burying him. Thus, the only person with any motive to revive him is not interested. Since his body was reanimated for a guard in Dorukan's Dungeon, it was probably destroyed when the gate exploded. Although, you don't see any zombie with a broken arm, or any other distinctions, so who knows, maybe Redcloak ended up burying him after all. The point is, he's dead and staying dead.]]
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Unlike Redcloak. Especially noticeable with his refusal to keep investing in Xykon, even though ''he'' suggested allying with Xykon in the first place.
* TheMoralityMortalityEquation: He's ultimately the victim of this. Redcloak can't die because it's a prequel, so his brother ends up paying for their evilness instead. Only Right-Eye isn't evil, so he ended up dying due to someone else's evil.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Just like Redcloak, his real name is never revealed.
* PointyEars: As with all goblinoids.
* PosthumousCharacter: He's dead by the main narrative.
* RedOniBlueOni: Plays the role of the impulsive, emotional red oni to his brother's blue.
* ScaryTeeth: The ridiculous amount of sharp things in his mouth; shown off when angry.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Pulled it on ThePlan, and by extension Redcloak and Xykon. It worked for eighteen years too, and he was successful enough to create a peaceful goblin settlement that lived alongside humans, until Xykon stumbled across him by accident and enslaved him and his entire village.
* TokenGoodTeammate: To Team Evil. While it isn't quite crossing the MoralEventHorizon, his death marks a major IgnoredEpiphany for Redcloak.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: His simple idea of recruiting Xykon had terrible, terrible consequences. If not for that one moment, Xykon probably never would have heard of the Snarl, never had the brains to become a lich on his own, and simply continued his acts of petty evil until he died and went to the Lower Planes without ever becoming the apocalyptic threat he is today.
* WalkingSpoiler: For a prequel comic, Right-Eye reveals a massive amount about Redcloak and Xykon's agendas, Team Evil's relationship with "The Thing in the Box," as well as a possible ChekhovsGun in [[spoiler:his smuggled daughter]].

* AntiVillain: More so than his brother because he's more focused on living a happy domestic life, focused more on bringing his people up AntiMagic: The Death Knight has some serious Spell Resistance, to the level of the humans, rather than tearing humans down. So he doesn't approve of ThePlan, at least later on. [[spoiler:Soon Vaarsuvius's great annoyance.
* BadassBoast:
-->'''Death Knight:''' THEN LET THE REAPING BEGIN!!
* BattleStrip: The Death Knight rips its Xykon robe, revealing its heavy armor,
before charging at the breach.
* BloodKnight: The Death Knight. See its BadassBoast. [[spoiler:It cuts
his death, he gives a brutal deconstruction of ThePlan to Redcloak's face, calling it spite way through four giant soldiers, blasts through several normal soldiers, kills General Chang, and pettiness from two beings who are too focused on revenge to know and do what is truly best for the goblin people. And judging by how many goblins Redcloak has caused the deaths of, he may have been right.nearly defeats a weakened V.]]
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: {{Body Double}}s: Skeleton Doubles at least. Redcloak says he can't let Right-Eye gamble with the lives of so many goblins in a gambit to kill Xykon. Right-Eye just asks, why doesn't Redcloak help? This reveals Redcloak's true motivation for not wanting to kill Xykon -- not out of fearing made them for the lives of his fellow goblins, but out of an unwillingness "Shell Game" at Azure City.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: The pendants Redcloak gave them so
he always picked chopping wood. [[spoiler:And then he demonstrates could tell them apart; dark green for the Death Knight, purple for the Huecuva and orange for the Eye of Fear and Flame.
* DemBones: All of them are animated skeletons.
* DeusExMachina: The Death Knight [[spoiler:getting crushed by a falling dragon head, from Vaarsuvius's viewpoint, is exactly this because it falls from the sky at the last moment]].
* DirtyCoward: Skullsy -- {{ahem}}, the "Eye of Fear and Flame".
-->'''Redcloak:''' [[LampshadeHanging I think I got a little too much "fear" and not enough "flame"
on a treant.that one.]]
* BadassPacifist: EvilerThanThou: The amount of achievements he accomplished without violence eclipses his violent ones, and arguably those of Redcloak as well. Redcloak is at least Huecuva gets in a 17th level cleric, but Right-Eye managed to create a huge goblin settlement peacefully coexisting scuffle with humans, without Kubota's ninjas [[DiscussedTrope over who gets to take out Hinjo]] and manages to kill one of them before [[BigDamnHeroes Durkon intervenes]].
* EvilIsHammy: The Death Knight is clearly enjoying
the help of Xykon or a hobgoblin army. Also, unlike Redcloak, he never threw lives away, or constantly endangered his species.
* TheBrute: Complicated case. Before Xykon, he was more or less equal
theatrics that come with his brother. After Xykon's lichification, he was pushed into slaughtering an army.
-->'''Death Knight:''' The ground will hungrily lap up
the "evil strongman" role because he didn't have Redcloak's intelligence.
* CallingTheOldManOut: A variant, when Right-Eye lashes out at his older brother, who has been
spilled blood of the oldest family member righteous this unholy day!
* ExpressiveMask: Or Expressive Eyesockets
in his life. Overlaps with ArmorPiercingQuestion.
-->'''Redcloak''' The risk to all of us is too great if you fail.\\
'''Right-Eye''' Shouldn't you make sure I don't fail, then?\\
'''Redcloak''' I'm sorry, I can't let you gamble with
this case, like the lives of so original.
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler:Belkar intimidates Skullsy to serve him and fight off Hobgoblins. Skullsy continues to do so, until Belkar mentions keeping it and using it for
many goblins.\\
'''Right-Eye:''' I can't believe you! You hypocrite! All you care about is your stupid Plan!\\
'''Redcloak''' My Plan is
different things. When he mentions a chamber pot, Skullsy snaps and says that it has finally found something worse than death, and promptly betrays them by screaming for the betterment of hobgoblins and setting off a Fireball. Haley smashes the goblin people!\\
'''Right-Eye''' You don't even know the goblin people. You think this is what
skull on a rock and they want? To be ruled by an insane lich? To be killed by poor planning, or mood swings? ... You don't even know what you're trying to better, because you don't know what it's like to not serve an undead overlord, or a petty spiteful god.
