Added DiffLines:

* ArachnidAppearanceAndAttire: The Collector seems to have an affinity with spiders. With his mask and bizarre eyes he somewhat resembles one, his traps fulfill the same function as a spider's web, and he keeps a number of them as pets. He even has a minor PetTheDog moment where he opens the basement window and releases a spider back into the wild.

* DiabolusExMachina: The titular Collector is a walking, talking one, capable of [[spoiler: rigging a whole house with extensive death traps within five minutes, rigging even more elaborate death traps in a club, fill an abandoned hotel with hundreds of traps that he never sets off by mistake, is combat capable enough to fight and kill trained mercenaries, more or less walks off being set on fire, and has zero motivation for all his monstrous deeds beyond 'ForTheEvulz'.]] He's less a serial killer than a malevolent force of nature, or a wizard.



* TrapMaster: The Collector.

Added DiffLines:

*** Not to mention that [[spoiler: despite re-breaking his arm to get out of a cage, Arkin has no issue delivering a no-holds-barred beatdown to the Collector at the end of the film. True, one of the other characters 're-set' the arm, but they might have well have just healed it outright.]]

** Always from the second one, even just for a moment, the Collector himself is also one. He beats four armed and trained mercenaries all by his own using an hook and his bare hands. Also it appears he knows some figthing movement.
