Added DiffLines:

* ParentalFavoritism: Time and Night have rather rocky relationships with their children, but both have expressed more affection for Destiny than the others. Time because Destiny never asks him for anything and Night because he's the only one who visits her.

TheGrimReaper and a PerkyGoth. A generally kind and upbeat woman, though not always - billions of years ago she was rather coldly pragmatic. Everyone meets her twice: at birth she gives the breath of life, and everyone, from stars to gods, sees her once more. At the end of time, when the universe dies, she'll put up the chairs, turn off the lights, and leave. One of the series' most popular characters - so it seems deliberate that she's not overused.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: It never explicitly comes up in the series, but it's hinted more than once that pissing off Death is not a good idea.

Added DiffLines:

* TheShadowKnows: All of the Endless except for Death (the most humane) and Destruction (who has retired) possess a strange shadow, often hinting at their nature.


Added DiffLines:

* TheShadowKnows: He has a "normal" shadow... as long as he remembers to cast it. Fittingly, he does possess some humanity, but not as much as Destruction or Death.


Added DiffLines:

* TheShadowKnows: Inverted. He doesn't leave a shadow, or footprints, or anything else.


Added DiffLines:

* TheShadowKnows: Averted. She's the only one out of the current Endless who still possesses a normal shadow.


Added DiffLines:

* TheShadowKnows: Casts two shadows - one black and sharp, the other translucent and wavering.


Added DiffLines:

* TheShadowKnows: Her shadow has the smell of "a snake's skin". She herself doesn't have any odor.


Added DiffLines:

* TheShadowKnows: Not only her shadow looks nothing like her, it's ''tangible''.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler:He wanted ideas, so Dream gave him an endless, unrelenting torrent of ideas. And then he wants them to stop, and loses ''all'' of his ideas. Forever. Well, okay, until Morpheous dies, but still.]]
