* PetTheDog: He can, every now and then, be kind. For instance, he both removes John Constantine's nightmares and gives Constantine's ex an easy, peaceful death when he could very easily have let her die painfully (though, admittedly, he only did this last once Constantine called him out).

* CompleteImmortality: More than any of the other Endless, to the point an aspect of her becomes mortal for one day each century to keep her in touch with the lives she collects. According to Delirium, she is the only one of the Endless that will outlive the current form of the universe.
* CoolBigSis: The second oldest of the Endless and is very close with all of them, but Dream in particular.

* ProtectiveCharm: [[spoiler:Thessaly puts her under one of these so Dream can't kill her and stop the Furies. Later Daniel-Dream puts one on her so that...well, basically ''everyone''...won't punish her in retaliation for killing Dream.]]

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:After what she helps put the Dreaming through, she essentially suffers no punishment for her crimes. However, the new Dream suggests ThePunishmentIsTheCrime; she pays for what she has done by never getting her baby back. This would be very averted if not for Daniel-Dream's [[ProtectiveCharm mark of protection]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* DeityOfHumanOrigin: According to ''Comicbook/TheBooksOfMagic'', Queen Titania was originally a human peasant girl during the Middle Ages. She is such a powerful sorceress that to all practical intents and purposes she is a PhysicalGod and appears to be TheAgeless. Titania easily outmatches most mythological gods in the modern age, as she does not depend on worship for power. The supernatural community in general simply regards her as the godlike Queen of Faerie.

* WomanInBlack: She can be ''very'' menacing when she cares to be, and this seems to have been her default at some point in the past, but these days she's a subversion.

First appeared in ''"Sandman''" vol. 1 #1 (Winter, 1974), created by JackKirby and Joe Simon. Originally supposed to be the Sandman of legend, this bizarre character patrolled the "Dream Stream" to fight nightmares with the aid of two dreams named Brute and Glob, often helping out a young boy named Jed. After his short-lived series ended, it was {{Retcon}}ned that he was actually a psychologist named Garrett Sanford whose mind was trapped in a "Dream Dimension" while his physical body was in a coma. An appearance in ''ComicBook/InfinityInc'' revealed that Sanford had gone insane after his last appearance and committed suicide. Gaiman's ''Sandman'', finally, revealed that Brute and Glob were rogue nightmares from the Dreaming who were running amok in Morpheus's absence, the Dream Dimension was a pocket universe they created inside the mind of Jed Walker, and Sanford was just a plaything for them.

* GodInHumanForm: In ''ComicBook/{{Lucifer}}'', on the few occasions he manifests, His preferred form is a pudgy British guy with a bowler hat and umbrella for some reason.

* GodInHumanForm: In ''ComicBook/{{Lucifer}}'', on the few occasions he manifests, His preferred form is a pudgy British guy with a bowler hat and umbrella for some reason. Since he takes this form after meeting Elaine Belloc, it's possible he plucked it from her mind and took a liking to it.

** An enormous example zigzagged in Overture. Desire essentially engineered Dream's salvation and enabled him to save the entire multiverse by sending him the tools he'd need and the only aspect of himself that he'd ever listen to. Not only this, but it did this three times (the first two attempts failed). However, it had as much need for self-preservation as selflessness and because success meant a multicosmic retcon, it forgot that it had done it and reverted back to it's old ways.

* MetaGuy: Most notably in ''The Wake,'' where he, like the audience, [[spoiler:is shown taking Morpheus' death hard, and has problem accepting Daniel as the substitute,]] but it shows up on many other occasions as well.

* TheReliableOne: Was the only dream not to flee Dream's castle as it fell apart. Because of this Dream came to rely on him heavily and all but made Lucien his NumberTwo.

* TheGhost: Never manifests in person (uh, sort of, we're talking an omnipotent omnipresent omniscient deity here, just roll with it), but is obviously spoken of and performs offscreen actions that shake the foundations of the universe.
