* TheAce: {{Deconstructed}}. Illidan believes he is one and this leads him to do rash and flat out stupid things because he thinks he's such an ace that no matter what comes at him, he'll handle with easy. In contrast to his twin Malfurion, who is a HumbleHero considered [[WorldsStrongestMan the strongest Druid ever]], Illidan's boasts and actions come across as someone who is desperate to be seen as the ace he thinks he is. He finally snaps when Arthas, currently at close to his weakest while Illidan himself was at the height of his powers, beat him by using intelligence and skill over Illidan's brute force.

* HandicappedBadass: He can't see thanks to the Vision of Sargeras yet he's able to sense and feel power thanks to it. In fact, he's stronger blind than he was before.

** It's a recurring theme with Illidan. In the War of the Ancients he worked as a double agent, pretending to join the Highborne and Legion, then planned to use the [[ArtifactOfDoom Dragon Soul]] to destroy their portal. The problem was he never told anybody this, so the night elves thought he had really gone rogue.
** In ''Legion'' we learn that he was increasing his forces in ''The Burning Crusade'' because he was planning an invasion of Argus, but the Alliance, Horde, and Sha'tar only saw him recruiting demons and pumping orcs full of fel blood. Of course, this doesn't excuse the ''other'' things he did on Outland, such as enslaving Broken, draining Zangarmarsh, and attacking Shattrath City.

** She shared originally the position of CoDragons with Xavius to Azshara. Before her death though, it seems she was the sole Dragon to Azshara. Indeed, her loyality to Illidan, seems in the end just an extension of her UndyingLoyalty towards Azshara.

* {{Expy}}: Lady Vashj can be seen as one to [[WarhammerWarriorsOfChaos Dechala the Denied One]] from [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Warhammer Fantasy]]. Both were elven nobles, transformed into [[MultiArmedAndDangerous multi-armed]] SnakePeople, with the help of chaotic deities(The Chaos God Slaanesh for Dechala, The Old Gods for Vashj). Although one could say the status of expies of Dechala, could be extended to the whole Naga species...



* UndyingLoyalty: Towards Azshara, with Vashj's last words being an apologny to Azshara for failing her.

* {{Yandere}}: As noted in Literature/TheWarOfTheAncients, is one at least up to a level towards Azshara. Lady Vashj there even tries to kill Tyrande out of jealousy, fearing to lose the position of Azshara's favored.

* HellishPupils: Oddly, she had them allready as a Highborne Nigh Elf, but lost them after becoming a Naga, her eyes after transformation being depicted as [[SupernaturalGoldEyes Gold]] (in ''Frozen Throne'') or [[RedEyesTakeWarning Red]] (in ''The Burning Crusade'') GlowingEyesOfDoom.

* RebelPrince: It's implied he was this in the backstory, preferring to pal around with his friends in Dalaran than embrace his responsibilities as heir to Quel'Thalas.

** The reason he's come back from the dead is even moreso, as Maiev trapped his soul in the mortal coil to be actively tortured for all eternity until Gul'dan intervened.



* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Though the developers have teased the idea of reviving him. It certainly seems like he will return in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmHY6hERT3s ''Legion'' expansion.]] ]]

* HopelessSuitor: To Tyrande. Not that he has ever stopped trying even after knowing that she only has eyes for his brother. One of the sure-fire ways to get Illidan on your side (apart from magic for his addiction) is to promise that your plan will help/impress Tyrande.
