* '''Deconstructed''': Marco the Magnificent is fully aware that the effects of his magic will fade with his death. That's why he's hellbent on attaining eternal life, [[ImmortalityImmorality regardless of the cost.]]
** Emperor Evulz has as much of his dirty work done by his non-magical minions as possible, so the effects will be permanent. There's a reason why he has had slaves building his new palace by hand for the last eight years rather than conjure one up overnight.
** Alternately, and in addition to Marco's reason for focusing on eternal life, the heroes issue him a ShutUpHannibal lecture and promptly exterminate the foul being that was once a mage. Unfortunately, the magic that started Marco on his dark quest for immortality was not a selfish magic, but rather [[EvilPowerVacuum a magic-powered cage around an even stronger evil]].
*** In addition, any beneficial magic he may have done before becoming an evil mage goes away as well.
* '''Reconstructed''': However, despite the effort, it turns out the work done by his slaves, who are creatures created by magic, are undone as well no matter their efforts to the contrary.

* '''Double Subverted''': ...because that was only a magical duplicate of the Emperor, of course! GenreSavvy readers knew something was up, because they were only halfway through the trilogy.
