* '''Deconstructed''': Rant-prone nihilists like Hermann are just as [[SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers pathetic, if not even more,]] than the "[[WideEyedIdealist wide-eyed idealists]]" they're constantly debunking and bullying, sometimes with their [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech speeches]] being just a projection of their own self-hatred, depression and {{death seek|er}}ing tendencies on the idealists. Sure the nihilists are smarter and/or more savvy, and are wise to know that it's a CrapsackWorld, but [[SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers they waste their philosophical intellect]] on [[FauxlosophicNarration fauxlosophic]] {{wangst}} and being [[JerkAss assholes]], instead of making something actually useful.

** Hermann is a nihilist, but simply believes that there's no true purpose to live, feeling instead each person should find their own.

** Hermann believes that the world is a cold and uncaring place, than humans are basically vicious animals, and that God is uncaring at best... [[KnightInSourArmor and this is why we need RULES, to turn this wilderness into a civilization, to put the beast known as Man on a leash, and to deliver the justice God will not!]]

** Hermann is nihilistic in a paradoxical way. He always claims that there is a higher meaning and a reason for existence but it carries the [[UnfortunateImplications sinister undertone]] of life on earth being worthless because of this higher meaning.

* '''Zig Zagged''': The author needed a character to be a nihilist, with a heavy cultural backbone, so he made him a Nietzsche follower. Only, the author doesn't care to read anything about Nietzsche, so the character's beliefs vary at every needs of the story. Wildly.

** Hermann is said to be a nihilist... but what he says he lets others interpret how they wish, no matter what he says. This means to some he is a StrawNihilist, to others TheCynic, and to some a KnightInSourArmor or TheAntiNihilist.
