*FateWorsethanDeath: If you think that his Born-Again Immortality that prevents him to forget his past lives was bad enough, there is a creepy coincidence between the Blank Dimension and the "White Room" torture: basically, the prisoner is trapped into a colorless room and only interact with white food and white objects. It is considered by many to be THE worst torture method conceived and Qilby had to experience it for 10 000 YEARS !!!

to:

* [[spoiler:AntiVillain ([[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type 2]])]]AntiVillain: His ultimate goal is to [[spoiler:save his family]]. His ruthlessness isn't from lacking a conscience, he's operating under the assumption that [[spoiler:every bad thing he does will be undone once he succeeds]].



* AwesomeButImpractical: His time-stop ability is broken each time he uses it. Perhaps a subversion, as the only times he uses this spell are against dragons (some of the most powerful creatures in the world), [[TheHero Yugo]] in the middle a RoaringRampageOfRevenge and a HeroicResolve and Alibert in full PapaWolf mode, making it also a case of OvershadowedByAwesome. A more "normal" opponent (like the heroes minus Alibert in Episode 2) seems to be powerless against it. Also, [[spoiler:all those who have successfully broken out of the spell have suffered long term effects]]. His SwordBeam also counts.



* BadBoss: Towards his minions.
* BadassBookworm

to:

* BeyondTheImpossible: His ultimate plan. Take note that time manipulations isn't unheard of in this setting; Some characters have managed to travel back and forward through time; Powerful Xelors and the god himself can cause indefinite time loops over certain areas. Nox on the other hand, doesn't want to do any of that. He wants to [[spoiler:reverse time for the entire Krosmos and ultimately succeeds...in a fashion]].

* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: Or just finally DyingAlone: [[spoiler:After seeing his plan could never succeed, Yugo convinces the others to let Nox leave.

* TheFaceless: To the point where it's easy to think that [[CoolMask his mask]] ''is'' his face.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Wavers between this and outright patronizing.

* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: Grougaloragran is the only one told Nox's entire plan, and afterward is left in no situation to reveal it. Even Yugo only had a hunch that Nox was anything more than a power mad despot, but that's all history will remember him as.
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:Once his attempt to travel back in time fails because he couldn't go nearly far enough, Nox realizes he was delusion to put some much faith behind the (probably hallucinatory) words of the Eliacube.

no remorse [[InvokedTrope because he assumes his ultimate success will render all negative consequences of his actions irrelevant]]. [[spoiler:Theoretically, he's right, as all his evil deeds would be undone if he set the universe back to before he did them. The problem is he actually ''can't'' do that because there isn't enough wakfu in the world to go back nearly far enough. [[HeelRealization He doesn't last very long, though.take this well.]]]]

** [[spoiler: Another explanation could be related to the fact that, unlike other demi-gods, Ecaflip's children get 9 lives as it is seen in Remington comics (in them Ush dies but comes back as a kitten). If they died at some point between Dofus and Wakfu, got reincarnated as kids and Joris adopted them it would explain why and how the roles got reversed. ]]

** The timeline is a bit sketchy due to Ankama's many interventions on the lore, but an official timeline shows that he was 7 in 'Treasures of Kerubim', meaning he was 591 in his first appearence on 'Wakfu'.

* IdiotHero: Deconstructed. Sadlygrove's mental pratfalls often fail to be inspiring or even endearing, and he becomes increasingly sensitive about cracks to his intelligence as the series goes on. One of his greatest moment is to abandon his family and going to fight [[PhysicalGod Ogrest]] despite having [[UnskilledbutStrong little knowledge of his powers]] and the fact that [[ThatOneBoss Ogrest has already defeated numerous Gods]] (including the more experienced and powerful 10 Original Gods). LeeroyJenkins anyone ?

* KickTheDog: When he learn that Evangelyne has a sister, what is his reaction? Ranting about always being a ButtMonkey and Eva for trying to [[BloodKnight avoid fighting]]. To make matters worse, he's quite receptive at Cleophelia's advances; keep in mind, Eva is [[spoiler :PREGNANT]] at the time. Fortunately, he finally realizes his mistake, but nonetheless this is still a prick move...
