* MundaneUtility: The most dangerous benefits of Xykon's lich transformation weren't the near-immortality or undead powers. They were the racial bonuses to his intelligence and wisdom, because, collectively, they made him much more capable of snapping any tethers Redcloak has to hold him back.
** In addition, it gave him a sizeable strength boost, as well as a bonus to his Listen ability. He demonstrates this by catching an Invisible Vaarsuvius and then ''strangling them''.

Added DiffLines:

** In the prequel, Xykon's love of coffee was one of, if not his only humanizing characteristics. He even loved ''bad'' coffee because it reminded him of the lifetime of good coffee he'd ever drank. When lichdom robbed him of that, he took it poorly.

* MauveShirt: The only properly named Hobgoblin (as in, [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0703.html not named something like Hogoblin Cleric #2)]], and one of the few ones with significance. [[spoiler:Also one of the few still-living members of Team Evil outside of the main three and the roaches.]]

* NoNonsenseNemesis: Unlike Xykon, he uses military tactics instead of relying on brute strength; he refuses to rely on classic elementals as {{Giant Mook}}s, and instead uses stronger and rarer ones; after some CharacterDevelopment, he refrains from using the WeHaveReserves tactic. [[spoiler:Finally, he uses LaResistance to get his boss' SoulJar, before ambushing them with a group of summoned devils and giving them a TotalPartyKill, and simply orders one of his aforementioned elementals to kill a Paladin trying to goad him into a duel.]] He even points out he's not taking stupid risks any more in doing so. [[spoiler:He also kills everyone who knows that he has possession of the phylactery (''and'' makes sure they won't be resurrected) to ensure the success of ThePlan. He also made a perfect forgery of the phylactery, knowing that Xykon would no longer let him hold onto it.]] After realizing the Order of the Stick is protecting the gates, he simply decided to wipe them out himself as soon as he could. When Xykon tells him to drop it, he summons a high-level elemental to kill Roy.

* LiteralMinded: Oona persists in calling Kraagor's Tomb "Monster Hollow." That's also how she refers to people, like Redcloack being bald man in a red cape.

* TheUnreveal: He's constantly waiting to get out of the darkness, but he hasn't had any luck so far. There ''will'' be an eventual Reveal, and it won't be an original creation, but rather a monster with abilities largely consistent with what's been shown in the comic. There is [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?488773-Summon-MitD-IX-Roll-on-Section-3a an ongoing thread]] in the comic forum dedicated to figuring out what he is based on the clues dropped in the comic. It's become so meta that Rich Burlew has taken to lampshading it via the Fourth wall-breaking [[GreekChorus demon roaches,]] [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots1038.html as seen in this strip]], where the Monster gives some well-thought-out critique of Redcloak's "appealing but ultimately specious pan-goblinoid narrative," and one of the roaches mockingly asks whether the readers can identify any monsters with "trenchant political analysis" as a special attack.

* {{Body Double}}s: Skeleton Doubles at least. Redcloak made them for the "Shell Game" at Azure City.

* {{Body Double}}s: Skeleton Doubles at least. Redcloak made them for the "Shell Game" at Azure City. Though he didn't actually do anything to make them look like Xykon, since they were all skeletons. He just gave them robes and called it a day.
