* TheUndead: Somewhat averted in that not all of its members are actually undead: Cultists of the Damned, gargoyles, vrykul as well as mind-controlled Ice trolls and Wendigo are still alive. Death Knights are for the most part undead but it doesn't seem to be strictly necessary.

* TheUnfettered: According to Kel'thuzad, this is why the Scourge always wins.
--> The so called 'heroes' of the land fall before us by resorting to a measure of our ideals to bring forth their envisioned victory. Their victory is a vehicle to the realization that without resorting to what they define as deplorability to achieve it, we would have overcome them instead. In both outcomes, win or lose, the Scourge invariably wins. When this is recognized, submission to our will is inevitable.

* LightningBruiser: In Warcraft III and its expansion -- Arthas is incredibly fast and hits extremely hard even before taking into account the various Tomes of Strength and attack-power increasing items you'll find for him. Combined with his Death Coil, which is arguably the most damaging direct damage attack in the game; Arthas is adept at eliminating hero units and powerful infantry. In fact, he's so strong that he'll beat his counterpart -- Illidan, roughly 90% of the time.

** [[CoDragons One of two, along with Anub'arak]], to Arthas' BigBad. In WorldOfWarcraft, Anub'arak is the significantly less powerful of the two, making Kel'Thuzad the clear Dragon. Like Kel'thuzad before him, Anub'arak has now been brought back from the dead again, as a harder end game boss than the second incarnation of Kel'thuzad, but easier than the first incarnation.

* TragicVillain: For all the atrocities he wound up commiting, Arthas was once a noble paladin that was corrupted in his foolhardy attempt to destroy the Scourge and save his people.

A powerful necromancer in life, Kel'Thuzad was resurrected in the energies of the Sunwell by Arthas shortly after the latter's FaceHeelTurn. With the help of the Scourge forces, he was able to summon Archimonde into Azeroth via portal magic; the Eredar's ensuing rampage destroyed the city of Dalaran and culminated in the loss of the World Tree. Despite the defeat of the Burning Legion (and by proxy, the Scourge), Kel'Thuzad was not killed; rather, he accompanied Arthas on his journey to Northrend, where the prince eventually became the Lich King and appointed Kel'Thuzad as his right hand lich. Currently, he rules the necropolis of Naxxramas, always eager for a raid group to fight.

* TheChainsOfCommanding: This is what drove him to seek out power when he was still good. The sheer horror of the Plague and The Scourge took its toll on the young princes mind. Despite the loyalty of his soldiers up until he betrayed them, Arthas was struggling in how to handle the people not only of his army, but also the people he one day would lead. [[{{Irony}} Eventually he realized the dead mindlessly obey, so that eliminated that problem.]]

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: It's easy to forget that despite his status as Ner'zhul's champion and enforcer, Frostmourne claimed Arthas' soul and Ner'zhul's whispers drove him mad like any of his other victims.

* GenreSavvy: Possibly. Gives the people who "killed" him the first time a ''very'' sterotypical "DyingAsYourself" quote when faking his death. It works and nobody expected him to come back in the Argent Coliseum, having tunneled under it.
