* AnthropomorphicPersonification: The Yellow King may personify decadence itself. That's what the colour yellow means (see the yellow book in ThePictureOfDorianGray).

* ArtifactOfDoom: Any copy of the play ''The King in Yellow''. The subject matter of the play isn't entirely revealed, other than that it's set in [[EldritchLocation "the lost city of Carcosa"]], perceived to be very artistically written, though the first act is tame and the second act drops hard. Reading the play will either lead to madness or a dark fate. The King in Yellow ''himself'' is never seen, nor shown whether or not he actually exists, though he appears to be a HumanoidAbomination that embodies decadence.
