* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Is a fan of killing people with their own guns. This backfires on him, [[OutGambitted quite literally, when firing David's gun sets off a detonator within it, ending up killing ''himself'' instead due to not being afraid of himself.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AddictiveMagic: This is implied to be part of why it's so rare and difficult for Epics to remain uncorrupted. Even those who recognize the ill effects of using their powers before they're too far gone to care suffer from a strong urge to use them whenever possible.

* BarrierWarrior: He can create very durable and versatile forcefields. After being corrupted, he's seen using them to lift himself up and fly, carry prisoners in impenetrable bubbles, crush people by contracting said bubbles, and create directed gusts of air.

Added DiffLines:

* MultilayerFacade: During her time working for Steelheart, she was a dimensionalist pretending to be an illusionist pretending to be a fire Epic. When she infiltrated the Reckoners, she was all of the above disguised as a regular human.

* [[spoiler:NotBrainwashed: David assumes that Obliteration's murderous obsession is a product of Calamity's influence. After Calamity is banished, it is revealed that Obliteration actually confronted his weakness ''years'' ago and all his evil deeds since were committed of his own free will. This is foreshadowed throughout ''Firefight'' and ''Calamity'' - Obliteration sees himself as a servant of a higher power rather than being purely selfish like a typical corrupted Epic.]]

* BadassGrandpa: When we finally see him fight, it's rather impressive, especially given his age (although being an Epic somewhat reduces the effects of aging).

* AfraidOfTheirOwnStrength: The mere prospect of using his powers unrestrained leads him to terrified anger It's not unjustified, given the risk of insanity if he uses his powers too much, which it's implied that he's experienced directly in the past. He has a great deal of strength to fear; when using his powers, he's able to go toe-to-toe with [[TheDreaded Steelheart]], often suggested to be the most dangerous Epic in the U.S next to Obliteration... and based on what we see in ''Firefight'' and ''Calamity'', that was him ''holding back''.
