* 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.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Every single black dragon. With the possibly exceptions of Sabellian (A black dragon QuestGiver) and Wrathion (the uncorrupted dragon egg in ''Cataclysm''/young black dragon in ''Mists of Pandaria'').

* 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]].

* RageAgainstTheHeavens: When he and Thrall meet in ''Charge of the Aspects'', he reveals that he serves the Old Gods because he hates the task the titans charged him with and the Old Gods promised to free him from his burden.

* 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.

* RedIsHeroic: Alexstrasza (and her Red dragonflight) stands out among the others as the only dragons who are consistently good thru the story, unlike the other Aspects who become antagonists at some point in time (Neltharion becomes Deathwing pretty much from the start, Malygos decides to erradicate all users of magic (pretty much everyone), Nozdormu becomes Murozond in the future and Ysera succumbs to the Emerald Nightmare).

This extends to their Dragonflights as well; the Red Dragonflight are good guys, while a good part of the Black, Green and Bronze dragons are eventually corrupted direct or indirectly by the actions of the Old Gods, and the Blue Dragonflight is almost completely exterminated.

* CantHaveSexEver: One of the novels reveals that after the War of the Ancients, Deathwing tried mating with his consorts; his deformed, fiery body was so hot, he burned three of them to death and horrifically scarred the fourth. For reference, black dragons are immune to fire and regularly take bathes in molten lava.
