** In ''Frozen Throne'', his focus is put aside in favour of Illidan during his own campaign. By the invasion of Northrend, Kael is merely a {{Mook}} to the undead's point of view, merely being in Illidan's way.



%%* DragonWithAnAgenda

to:

%%* DragonWithAnAgenda* DragonWithAnAgenda: During ''Burning Crusade'', Kael'thas was preparing a gateway for the Burning Legion to invade Outland and Azeroth while Illidan was completely unaware.



* OldShame: To the blood elves after the public revelation of his turn to the Burning Legion; the leader of the Reliquary names the continued presence of Kael'thas' statues in Silvermoon City among the reasons for both the Alliance and Horde allegedly looking down on the blood elves.


Added DiffLines:

* MayflyDecemberRomance: The reason he did not approach the drastically younger Jaina Proudmoore with romantic intentions at first - the differences in age making their friendship rather awkward. By the time he gained his resolve, she had already fallen in love with Arthas.

Added DiffLines:

* UndyingLoyalty: Before JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope, Kael'thas was very loyal to not only Quel'thalas, but also the Kingdom of Dalaran. Even after his father Anasterian [[UngratefulBastard ungratefully withdraws from the Alliance]], Kael'thas stays in Dalaran as part of The Six. It took Quel'thalas being devastated for him to leave Dalaran, and even then, one of his first moves after rallying the now-blood elves was to join the Alliance in order to retake Dalaran. It's only after [[GeneralRipper Garithos]] decides to have them executed for Kael'thas making decisions Garithos all but forced him to take that he leaves Dalaran for good.

** Furthermore, he makes several derisive comments regarding the Light and its powers... but these prove hollow since Illidan gets to Argus on a Light-powered vessel and the majority of the forces on Argus are made up of the Army of the Light. Also see UngratefulBastard below.

Also Light (also see UngratefulBastard below. below). It even comes up that [[spoiler: in his final message to Tyrande. He states that he considers her faith in Elune to be one of her best qualities... [[FridgeLogic even though he had spent much of his time among the Army of the Light being distant and dismissive towards the Light and its followers]], not to mention his killing of Xe'ra]].

** Best exemplified in 7.3: Despite being accompanied almost entirely by priests, paladins, and holy warriors, he starts the patch by showing open disdain for Velen's faith in the Light. [[spoiler:He's one of only two people on the Vindicaar using BlackMagic. When [[WellIntentionedExtremist X'era]] attempts to forcibly empower him with the Light instead, he emanates an aura of darkness as he ''obliterates her'' in his refusal.]]

Added DiffLines:

* VoiceOfTheLegion: as [[spoiler:Xe'ra tries to force the Light onto him]], Illidan's voice briefly gains a demonic echo as he rejects it.

* 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. He stops around the time of his banishment into Outland, having finally come to grips with which brother Tyrande's love belongs to.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Kael'thas was one of the few high elves who ''wasn't'' an UngratefulBastard and FairWeatherFriend. He remained in Dalaran even after his father abandoned the Alliance, and the first thing he did after coming into power was reaffirm his nation's ties with it on the grounds of personal loyalty and duty. The FantasticRacism directed at Kael'thas was fuelled by the high elves' poor conduct during the Second War - and Kael'thas himself was one of the few elves who had done nothing to earn it.

Added DiffLines:

* DemotedToExtra: Despite being a major POV character in the ''Illidan'' novel, in-game he's a minor, low leveled NPC
* HeroicWannabe: He spent years wandering Outland searching for Illidan, hoping his drive and determination to avenge his son would impress the Betrayer enough to take him as his student. He was a little disappointed to learn not only did hundreds of other elves have the same idea but they also got to the Black Temple long before he did. Nevertheless, he manages to stand out as one of Illidan's star pupils.

* TautologicalTemplar: Illidan almost always thinks that his plans are justified, no matter what the consequences or anyone else says. While he has tried to be heroic, he has also shunned good advice and for all his talk of sacrifice refuses to surrender his independence (save when he was learning Druidism under Cenarius, which was hampered by his impatience and unwillingness to learn, and during the beginning of the War of the Ancients when he served under Lord Ravencrest). His tendency towards unilateral decisions led him to join the Burning Legion as a double agent without telling anyone, make another Well of Eternity after the trouble the first one, do Kil'jaeden's dirty work and then try to use the Burning Legion's resources against them without keeping all of his allies in the loop. Even after he concedes that he can't defeat the Burning Legion alone, he's still dismissive of the solutions and powers of others [[spoiler: culminating in him causing dissent among the Army of the Light by killing it's leader Xe'ra because he disagreed with her plan to empower him]].
* TragicHero[=/=]TragicVillain: Depending on where on the morality scale you place him. Either way, it remains consistent that Illidan did try to do what he thought was best for his people for a long time.
