* BiggerBad: During [[CrisisCrossover the Day of Vengeance crossover]], Etrigan was ultimately the one behind the scramble for control over TheSpectre, though he apparently knew better than to try for control himself. This resulted in [[GreenLanter Hal Jordan]] taking the role, and Etrigan getting to [[ForTheEvulz laugh at the demons who thought they could.]]

* InstantRunes: WordOfGod says Etrigan's one of the most powerful spellcasters around, with only {{Merlin}} confirmed his superior. He can perform spells like this if he chooses, though he usually prefers hellfire or physical violence.

* AristocratsAreEvil: Baron Von ''Evilstein''
** In continuities where Etrigan is a true demon, not merely a construct of Merlin's, he's depicted as at least a prince of Hell. While he was under the pen of GarthEnnis, he was briefly king of it.

* DarkIsNotEvil: He may be a demon, but that doesn't make him any less of a good guy.
** Depending on how he feels at the time, really. Sometimes Etrigan will do good for the sake of good, or need coercing by Jason.
* DemonLordsAndArchDevils: Etrigan is one of the higher-ups in Hell. A helpful indicator of his position in the hierarchy is his rhyming.

* GoodIsNotNice: Jason Blood, especially outside of the Demon's own series. He isn't a villain, but he also doesn't bother often interfering with any disasters that aren't supernatural in nature.

** Etrigan once terrified even other demons by wearing [[OrganicTechnology living, writhing scorpions pierced through his skin]] as armor.



* NobleDemon: Though not particularly noble or magnanimous himself, even when he is doing good, Etrigan is royalty, as his father is one of the three rulers of hell, making Etrigan a prince.
** At times when he is in the mood, Etrigan himself ''can'' recognise the good qualities of others and lend them his assistance. But it's rare to catch him in this mood.

** He does not do this in his appearances in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', only speaking in rhyme for one line at the end of the ''Batman'' episode.

Added DiffLines:

* BlindSeer: Randu's power increases after he's blinded.



* ByThePowerOfGrayskull

to:

* ByThePowerOfGrayskullByThePowerOfGrayskull: Etrigan's summoning spell.



* CursedWithAwesome

to:

* CursedWithAwesomeCreepyGood: Jason Blood. He's got human tongues on display in his basement in one story, and in another ritually bathes in blood.
* CursedWithAwesome: Jason Blood is immortal while he's bound to the Demon, and has influence over Etrigan's behavior. [[DealWithTheDevil The reverse is also true.]]



** The extent of Jason Blood's power as a BadassNormal or a BlackMage.



* EnemyMine: Tends to side with heroes more than villains, but it's usually due to not liking other villains very much.



* GeniusBruiser: Etrigan is capable of going toe-to-toe with Superman, Darkseid, and Lobo. He's also one of the most powerful spellcasters in existence, and successfully plotted the overthrow of Hell's hierarchy on at least three occasions, emerging as a KarmaHoudini for orchestrating the Day of Vengeance CrisisCrossover (almost nobody realizes his involvement).



* GratuitousIambicPentameter

to:

** Even when Etrigan is considered a hero, he's pretty ruthless, resorting to cannibalism or self-mutilation without hesitation.

* LeastRhymableWord

to:

* LeastRhymableWordLeastRhymableWord: Etrigan can stretch a rhyme pretty far. WordOfGod says that he does this to annoy other people as much as being forced to rhyme due to spells or his caste in Hell.



* OurDemonsAreDifferent

to:

* OurDemonsAreDifferentOurDemonsAreDifferent: All over the place. Etrigan's not much different from a HornyDevil, but pretty much every variation appears in Hell.



* RedHeadedHero

to:

* RedHeadedHeroRedHeadedHero: For given qualities of hero.



* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan

to:

* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCanSealedInsideAPersonShapedCan: Played with. Even in stories where Jason Blood and Etrigan both predate their merge, it's not always clear whether Blood is Etrigan's prison or vice versa.



* SplitPersonality

to:

* SplitPersonalitySplitPersonality: Sometimes.



* TorchesAndPitchforks

to:

* TorchesAndPitchforksTorchesAndPitchforks: Jason Blood's sometimes shown betraying Camelot, and this is the reaction of the locals. Other times, they just notice he's not aging, and take the same response.



* VoluntaryShapeshifting

to:

* VoluntaryShapeshiftingVoluntaryShapeshifting: Toyed with. It's just as often against their will.

* BattleStrip: Averted. Since the transformation from Jason to Etrigan is magical in nature, Jason's clothes aren't destroyed during the change and Etrigan appears fully clothed.
