* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Michael is pretty much the only extra-dimensional being that actually understands humans, and does a much better job of being able to predict their moves than Satan or Yahweh. [[spoiler:However, he doesn't use this savvyness so much ''against'' the humans, since it makes him perfectly aware that they'll win. Instead, he works toward damage control for the Angel race and ending up in charge of the human-controled Heaven.]]

** During one of Yahweh's tantrums, he starts ranting in a way described as unnervingly similar to Satan.


Added DiffLines:

** Many a demon notes that Satan is most terrifying when his voice is oily and calm, and find themselves relieved when he starts ranting and raving again.


Added DiffLines:

** By virtue of using bronze-age tactics against humans, the demons can come off as this. While there's definite strategy there, any semblance of it collapses against modern weaponry, and as far as humanity is concerned the demons are just hurling themselves at their bombs and bullets waving their tridents over their heads and screaming.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: [[spoiler: Subverted with the Baldricks when taught otherwise from what Satan says]].

to:

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: [[spoiler: Subverted with the Baldricks when taught otherwise Baldricks: their actions are the result of eons of Satan's propaganda and mistreatment. By the time Pantheocide rolls around, it's clear their moral compasses are as complex as Humanity's; from what Satan says]].the noble [[TheGoodKing Abigor]] to the self-serving but still somewhat decent Luga, to the truly sadistic and cruel Belial]].


Added DiffLines:

* HopelessWar: For Hell and Heaven, not Humanity. Both Abigor and Michael realize fairly quickly that the demons and angels respectively are doomed, and Michael's entire character arc is trying to save the angelic race from butchery at the hands of mankind.

* ItsPersonal: Humanity's opinion of Heaven. Sure, they'll fight like monsters against the Forces of Hell, but they take prisoners and treat them well, and by the end our relationship with them is pretty cordial. But after centuries of holy wars and worship of God, His betrayal is felt on a personal level: Michael's entire story arc revolves around trying to separate the Angels from God and make them look like victims of His madness, so that humanity won't [[KillEmAll exterminate them.]]
