* SmiteEvil: A class feature. As a high-level paladin, Xykon notes that the other ghosts just sting, while his "packs a wallop".

* AntiMagic: [[spoiler:If you succumb to her magical virus, you lose any and all spellcasting abilities. TheUndead are immune to this.]]

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Inverted, to a degree. Unlike most examples of this trope, who trust clearly untrustworthy people, Girard went the opposite approach- he distrusted Soon Kim when it turned out that Soon kept his word. As Haley said, he clearly didn't know how paladins think.

* LotusEaterMachine: [[spoiler: What his final illusion amounts to: it keeps the targets occupied for at least a few hours, ensuring his clan could kill them while they stood still.]]

** Kraagor's tomb is guarded by high level monsters out the wazoo that regenerate after a few days. In theory a death trap that can't have its secrets plumbed. In practice means that it is a gold mine of exp, Xykon an epic-level lich gets experience from battling in there, that provisions anyone trying to get in, thus increasing the strength of those trying to get to the gate.

* IdiotBall: [[spoiler:Xykon and Redcloak would have been thwarted if she had bothered to leave a guard to supervise them. Plus, she used the worst spells and attacks possible against the recently-undead Xykon. To be fair, liches seem to be ''very'' unheard of in the ''[=OotS=]'' universe -- at least one other epic-level mage has no idea that liches are immune to electricity, as well. Also, Roy, who is otherwise fairly well-read, had no knowledge of a lich's [[SoulJar phylactery]].]]

Also, Roy, who is otherwise fairly well-read, had no knowledge of not leave so many material components in their cell (making a lich's [[SoulJar phylactery]].phylactery requires over 100'000 GP). Also, while Lirian can be forgiven for using so many attacks that Xykon could NoSell due to the relative obscurity of liches in general, she did grab it when she led her opening attack with Poison against an obviously undead individual. While liches specifically might be obscure, undead are pretty common for adventurers.]]

* CrusadingWidower: There are hints which suggest that, had his wife not been killed by the Snarl, Soon would not have gone on to become the eminent hero who founded an entire order of paladins to safeguard the world from destruction.

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Okay, he's not human ''or'' "black," but he still clearly has the darkest skintone of the Order of the Scribble and he was the only one of them to die during their quest.

* ForgottenFallenFriend: Girard seems to think that he was this to Shojo and his epitaph even says "Sacrifice Forgotten".

Added DiffLines:

* {{Unperson}}: Given Girard's bitter comment to Soon, Soon's campaign to expunge all knowledge of the Gates, and the non-vandalized inscription on his tomb saying "Sacrifice Forgotten", it likely to say that history by and large doesn't remember him.

* [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Chaotic Cannot Comprehend Lawful]]: Girard's conviction that Soon would sooner or later break his oath to not interfere with other gates displays an utter lack of understanding of how a Lawful character's mind works, especially the one of a {{Paladin}}.
