* TouchedByVorlons: The five original Dragon Aspects were at first five proto-drakes, that after defeating their evil progenitor, the massive dragon Galakrond, were uplifted and vastly empowered by the Titans, and charged with protecting Azeroth from the Old Gods, before the Titans departed to seed other worlds with life.

%%* DracoLich: In ''Cataclysm''.

to:

%%* * DracoLich: In ''Cataclysm''.''Cataclysm''. It also stands out because it's not magical necromancy, but purely scientific necromancy Ala Frankenstein, which is practically unheard of in ''Warcraft'' (Thaddius was powered by forsaken souls, which was mostly magical even if he was powered by electricity).



%%* EvilChancellor

to:

%%* EvilChancellor* EvilChancellor: She served as a toxic advisor to Anduin and mind controlled Bolvar to keep him subservient, a lot of problems that the humans suffered from can be tracked back to her intentially running the kingdom into the ground and creating problems so her brother's false horde could eventually walk right over the city in her father's name.



%%* KilledOffForReal

to:

%%* KilledOffForReal* KilledOffForReal: Varian kills her for good in the comic where he's formally introduced. Notable because it was the first time an NPC was given the canonical kill on a raid boss and had the story written around it. While she's later ressurected ([[DracoLich in a sense]]) by Nefarian, she was put down by players again and is likely gone for good.


Added DiffLines:

* EnemyMine: Don't let his demeanor fool you, he's a corrupted black dragon and just as evil and his father and brothers. However, his grudge against the Gronn trumps any hatred he may still be holding onto for mortals, which is why he works together with the players to take revenge, as he and his remaining children are rather powerless.

* {{Stripperiffic}}: [[FridgeBrilliance What better way to promote the creation of Life?]]Life?]] Adverted in the ''War Crimes'' novel, where she wore a much more conservative outfit out of respect for the Pandaren when she was called to take the stand in Garrosh's trial.

Blue Dragon Aspect of Magic. Malygos was driven insane and his brood nearly wiped out after the disaster of the Dragon Soul. Many years later, he emerged from hiding only to become disillusioned by the rampant use of magic among the inhabitants of Azeroth, and embarked on a plan to gather all of its energies into the Nexus for Blue Dragonflight use only; however, doing so would leave Azeroth in a terrible state due to the Arcane emanating cracks in the earth causing mass deaths and Arcane madness (as seen by what happened in Winterfin Village, Lothalor Woodlands and Indu'le Village) not to mention the Nexus being blown up by a rift into the Twisting Nether unleashing thousands of Mana Serpents upon the Blue Dragonflight killing every single last one of them. Alexstrasza led the fight against him in his sanctum in the Eye of Eternity, where he was killed. Despite Malygos' insanity and later [[InsufferableGenius san]][[KnightTemplar ity]], many members of the Blue Dragonflight have assisted mortals throughout Azeroth's history.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In the ''Cataclysm'' storyline, it seems that Malygos' attempts to control all magic in Azeroth have been weakening the Council of Tirisfal to the point where they are forced to recruit Priests, Paladins, and Shamans into their number. This just as Deathwing decides to make his big comeback.

One of the few surviving blue dragons, Kalecgos is a servant of the great Aspect Malygos. He disguises himself as a half-elf, calling himself Kalec. Due to the blues being most in tune with magic of all the aspects, Kalec has the powers of a sorcerer and the strength of a warrior. In Cataclysm, after Malygos' death, he becomes Aspect of Magic.

* OnlySaneMan: One of the only few blue dragons not to agree with Malygos' plans. Further proved when he personally showed up in Wyrmrest Temple during Quel'Delar events.

* GenreSavvy: Refuses to even consider the possibility of Thrall being dead unless he sees a body. Turns out he's right to feel that way since Thrall survived.



* GenreSavvy: [[ShootTheMedicFirst "Foolsss... Kill the one in the dress!"]] In a rather interesting twist, presumably knowing that players typically have to attack dragons from the side, in ''Cataclysm'' he has Onyxia shoot electricity from her sides every time she breathes.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: A mix of this and DummiedOut. Despite the prevention and defeat of the Burning Legion being one of his major goals, Wrathion himself doesn't appear at all in ''Legion''. While he was intended to take part in Highmountain's quest chain he was eventually replaced with [[spoiler: Ebyssian]] because Wrathion's presence there didn't make much sense, and his sub-story about [[spoiler: using a time portal to bring uncorrupted black dragons to the present was replaced with the revelation that the Hammer of Khaz'Goroth can purify dragon eggs.]] That said, Blizzard has stated he may appear later.

* NotMeThisTime: In the Deaths of Chromie, Chromie assumes he is responsible for killing her. He actually isn't, and points you to the one that is.

* BadBoss: If any mortals end up work for him he does not treat them well even if he needs them. The goblins that forged his first set of armor plates he frequently threatened to kill when they displeased him and in ''Day of the Dragon'' when he used goblins to get Rhonin to Grim Batol, he was quick to kill them when they did their job.

* ColossusClimb: His true form is so ''huge'' that the first Boss fight is fought on his back in mid-flight. Very unlike most Bosses because you don't truly fight a Boss. Rather, you fight mooks and hold on as he tries to shake you off until his vulnerable spot is exposed and you can strike and break his armor. (Do it three times, and you win the fight, but it's easer said than done.)
* CombatTentacles: In the Spine of Deathwing Battle, and in the Madness of Deathwing battle. In the latter, they range from massive limb tentacles that are your primary targets in the first phase to smaller ones that attack your group as adds.

* DeathBySex: See CantHaveSexEver, he inflicts this on anyone he attempts to mate with. Notably part of his evil plan is (or was at one time) to force Alexstraza and Ysera to become his consorts, knowing full well that this or horrible disfigurement was the likely result.

* TheJuggernaut: Arguably the most powerful non god entity in the setting. He's only been beaten when the plates on his armor were broken and when faced with the other four Aspects at the same time when they were at full strength. And the was before he returned even stronger in ''Cataclysm.''

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Most black dragons have it in various forms, but in his case, it's also a very good suggestion: Deathwing will sometimes show up in various zones, nuke everything beneath him, then leave. There's even and achievement for it call "Stood in the Fire." This nuking is so powerful that it instantly kills anyone in range. You won't even see damage being applied to you, the game will simply announce that you're dead.

* NighInvulnerable: Very few things can actually hurt him. The other four dragon aspects, who still wielded immense power in their weakened states and were still beyond the rest of the dragons, couldn't even wound him before the rest of their strength was returned, and a punch from Grull that shock the whole area didn't even phase him. Alexstrazsa outright states from personal experience that no physical assault will be enough to kill Deathwing--normally, he would have died in their duel, but he has been saturated so thoroughly with Old God energy that no flesh wounds can kill him. The solution? [[NoKillLikeOverkill Use the modified Dragon Soul's unfathomable power to blast his matter out of existence entirely]].

* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler: He appears at the end of the Badlands quest line, confronting Rhea a red dragon, who is trying to purify the eggs of a captured black one in an attempt to raise a generation of them free of his evil. Though she pleads for him to spare the egg she has, he refuses, killing her and destroying it. (The player can't do anything to even try to stop this, and would likely be obliterated if he ''could'' try.) Still, her final message shows she may have gotten the last laugh on him, as the destroyed egg wasn't the purified one - you receive that one - ''[[WhamLine it was hers]]'']]
* WouldYouLikeToHearHowTheyDied: Shortly before the Ultraxion encounter in Dragon Soul, he flies in and taunts Alexstraza about how he turned many of her brood into mindless twilight drakes, and how painful a process it was. She, with forced stoicism, says that they are no longer of her clutch, and allows the raid to kill them.
