* BerserkButton: Halford does ''not'' like it when his deceased sister Ana is mentioned, and punched Cox when he did so in his WhatTheHellHero moment. [[NoSell Cox being much bigger than Halford]], he shrugged it off and punched him to the ground with one blow. [[spoiler:He manages to get over her death after drinking from the waters of Tal'doren.]]



* EnemyWithin: The Worgen curse for Halford [[spoiler: as well as Genn Graymane.]]

to:

* DrivenToSuicide:
** After her two sons died in the Northgate Rebellion, Halford's sister Ana hanged herself.
** After his plot to [[spoiler:turn over King Greymane to the Forsaken]] fails, [[spoiler:Lord Vincent Godfrey]] throws himself off a cliff and dies from the impact.
* EtTuBrute: Genn Greymane's reaction when [[spoiler:Lord Godfrey, Baron Ashbury and Lord Walden betray him, holding him at gunpoint to turn him over to the Forsaken. Especially Ashbury, with whom he grew up and was a childhood friend.]]
* EnemyWithin: The Worgen curse for Halford [[spoiler: as well as Genn Graymane.Greymane.]]



* GreatDetective: Halford Ramsey was conceptualized as a ''Franchise/SherlockHolmes'' {{Expy}}. In the comic he's described as being a famous detective who, though not always likeable, was a great investigator, and he has the ability to [[SherlockScan deduce facts from small clues]].
* HeroicWillpower: Despite being infected with the Worgen curse, Halford occasionally manages to overcome his bestial instincts with his logic before drinking from the waters in Tal'doren.



* {{Jerkass}}: Godfrey. Overlaps with FantasticRacism.

to:

* InsaneTrollLogic: [[spoiler:Lord Godfrey]]'s plan to convince the Forsaken to leave them alone is to [[spoiler:turn over Genn to them]], hoping they'll leave them be afterwards. Needless to say, this would likely not have worked.
* {{Jerkass}}: Godfrey. Overlaps with FantasticRacism. [[spoiler:It later leads him to betraying Genn because he's a Worgen himself.]]
* JerkassWithAHeartOfGold: Halford is quite the {{Jerkass}}, at one point interrogating the son of a lady who was victim of the "Starlight Slasher" right after he had witnessed the act. That said, his goal is to catch a dangerous serial killer, and he is quite loyal to Greymane. Compared to [[{{Jerkass}} Godfrey]], he's a saint.
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Cox was [[TheMole a member of the Wolfcult]] the entire time, and he's last seen in Greymane Court with Alpha Prime, with no hint of repercussions for his actions.]]
* TheMole: [[spoiler:Halford's partner Cox was a member of the Wolfcult the entire time.]]



* SherlockScan: Halford shows the ability to do this, often making quick deductions based on small clues, such as:
** Maxwell Wiggins being a Northgate Rebel sympathizer due to printing information not officially released to the public, such as the majority of the victims being Greymane supporters.
** The location of the Wolfcult hideout in Gilneas City, due to previous clues pointing to an antiques shop and the most recent victim having bought items there for a wedding[note][/note].
** [[spoiler:Maxwell Wiggins was a member of the Wolfcult, and his printing press with its unique "R"s was used to print ''"The Essence of Purity"''.]]



* TheSpock: Halford displays shades of this.

to:

* TheSpock: Halford displays shades of this. [[spoiler:His famous logical reasoning was one of the reasons Alpha Prime was interested in turning him to his cause.]]
* TheWatson: Cox fills in this role as part of the Sherlock Holmes parallel. [[spoiler:Unlike the TropeNamer, however, he is a member of the Wolfcult that he and Halford are investigating.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellHero: Cox delivers one to Halford while they're investigating the most recent killing in a spree of murders, where Halford tried interrogating the son of a lady who had been killed in front of him while handling the corpse in a less-than-respectful manner.

* ClothingDamage: Unlike in the [[WorldOfWarcraft source material]], transforming into a Worgen results in one's clothes getting completely torn off. Near the end, Worgen with their [[MagicPants clothes intact]] appear, though.

* AscendedExtra: In-game, Belrysa Starbreeze is a quest giver who appears briefly in the Worgen starting zone and, later on, she can be found as a priest trainer in Darnassus. ''Curse of the Worgen'' has her as a main character and explains much of her background.

** Belrysa has a similar realization when [[spoiler: Alpha Prime, formerly Ralaar, attacks Malfurion]] after they have torn a Legion fortress to the ground. Bonus points for using what must be the [[OhMyGods Night Elven counterpart]] of the TropeNamer expression.

* NotSoDifferent: Belrysa attempts this with Alpha Prime, by telling him that Malfurion himself tried out the Pack Form once but was equally unable to control it. Unfortunately, this only makes Alpha Prime call his old mentor a hypocrite.

Added DiffLines:

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The character known as Belrysa Starbreeze in-game is spelled Belysra Starbreeze in the comic. The comic version is correct, but the discrepancy is yet to be fixed in-game.
