Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: The show is already plenty dark, but his threat level and utter insanity made him the most dangerous obstacle the group had ever faced at the time, and his presence made Season 3 a gritty war story and very nearly drove Rick to becoming a VillainProtagonist.

[[folder:In General]]

A walled town in Georgia with over 70 survivors and many pre-apocalyptic comforts. What initially seems to be an idyllic oasis is revealed to have a dark underbelly, as Woodbury is run by the tyrannical Governor, who robs and kills outsiders and stages gladiator fights to entertain the populace. They wage war with Rick's group, losing dozens of their own, before the Governor's true nature is revealed, at which point they join their former enemy at the prison. The abandoned town is later burned to the ground by the Governor, who later kills the few Woodbury survivors in his final attack on the prison.
----
* BreadAndCircuses: The town features staged fighting matches between soldiers, complete with defanged zombies.
* DisasterScavengers: The Woodbury army loots and scavenges for supplies, including killing other groups to get them.
* KillEmAll: As of "Too Far Gone," all of the original Woodbury survivors are dead. Most of them are killed during their war with Rick's group, while the survivors die as a result of the flu or the Governor's final attack.
* NotUsingTheZWord: They call zombies "biters."
* RedshirtArmy: They lose dozens of unnamed soldiers in their war with the prison.
* StepfordSuburbia: The town seems too good to be true. It is.
* TownWithADarkSecret: The citizens are largely unaware that the Governor is a psychopath.

* AdaptationalIntelligence: He is [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy extremely]] [[ManipulativeBastard cunning]] compared to his comic counterpart. He relies on his support network a lot less than his comic counterpart, for example.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** His plan to assault the prison in "Home" seems rather haphazard, but is in fact a good aversion of HollywoodTactics aside from him not taking cover (probably because he's insane). The Governor sets up his soldiers on higher ground and in the trees to unload automatic weapon fire on everyone inside, even the children. He also slams a truck through the gate and has a driver dressed in body armor release a cargo of walkers into the prison yard, cutting off any of Rick's group outside the prison. Lastly he fires guns into the air to attract even more walkers. In one attack he almost took out half of Rick's group.
** Seen again on his second attack on the prison where he orders his soldiers to immediately bomb the guard towers using grenade launchers. The main reason the attack fails is that Rick's group use the under trained nature of the Woodbury militia against them by detonating flashbangs in close quarters, sounding deafening sirens, and releasing walkers on them, and when they flee the interior of the prison in a panic, heavy use of automatic gunfire by a heavily-armored pair of Maggie and Glenn ensures a complete rout.
** Also seen with his actions in Woodbury. Guarded walls and a strict curfew make sure no walkers can get in, and manipulative propaganda such as branding Rick's group as terrorists is used to keep Woodbury citizens on his side.
** After losing to the prison group, he gunned down his cowering soldiers without shooting them in the head so they'll reanimate. He did the same with Milton earlier by stabbing him in the gut and leaving him to reanimate and kill the BoundAndGagged Andrea.
** When he invades the prison for the second time, his new group has both members with military experience and a tank. He's much more successful this time, but still loses out in the end when the prison is rendered useless and the majority of his group (along with himself) is killed.

* BigBad: Specifically in Season 3 and [[DiscOneFinalBoss the first half of Season 4]]. Even after his death, he still has a lingering effect on the show, and for the next few seasons, no BigBad ever truly matches his body count, level of power and threat.

* ClimaxBoss: His second attack on the prison kicks the heroes out of the prison and changes everything for them as a result.

** It is not mentioned, but he is one to Michonne. Both lost those precious to them, but while Michonne became an outsider and managed to retain her humanity, the Governor became a ruthless sociopath who gathered people to manipulate.
** He's also one to Rick. Especially in Season 4, where there are extremely strong parallels between his actions post Season 3 and what Rick went through toward the start of the series.

manipulate. This is taken further when they both meet a family that accepts them as a ParentalSubstitute. When the Governor entered the Chambler family as a ParentalSubstitute, he merely did so [[ReplacementGoldfish to replace them with what he lost]], while Michonne legitimately becomes a ParentalSubstitute to Carol and eventually gets with Rick after a while.
** He's also one to Rick. Especially in Season 4, where there are extremely strong parallels between his actions post Season 3 and what Rick went through toward the start of the series. In season 5 it becomes more apparent when Rick moves into Alexandria and begins to act like the Governor more until he realizes he's starting to slip.



* HeroKiller: Gives this impression to all of the people around him, especially after the Season 3 mid-season finale.

to:

* TheHeavy: For events past Season 3 he's this. His second attack on the prison completely changed the group's lives since he ruined the prison and lead to the group finding Terminus and various other survivors.
* HeroKiller: Gives this impression to all of the people around him, especially after the Season 3 mid-season finale. He also causes the deaths of Axel, Merle, Milton, Andrea, and Hershel before he died and nearly killed Rick during their final battle.



* KarmicDeath: Like with many of his victims, he ultimately is left for dead without a head shot by Michonne. And despite his massive ego he ultimately ends up as just another devoured corpse in the overrun prison yard, having utterly failed in everything he's tried.
