%%* * TheDarkChick: Demnogonis, Dark Apostle of disease.disease, who really doesn't fit the infiltration or blatant assault tactics his siblings favor.



* DespairEventHorizon: This is the true form of the Madness Muawijhe heralds; while he and his cultists enjoy [[MadOracle the benefits]], his true field of influence is doubt (of one's ''[[{{Gaslighting}} senses]]'', natch). All of his powers are based around slowly wearing down the mental will of his adversaries until they lose the will to live or fight back.



* EvilGenius: Both Semai and Muawijhe fill this role for the Dark Legion, being largely subtle masterminds and sponsoring their cults to covert activity. Bonus points for being the only two Dark Apostles who [[VillainousFriendship get along pretty well]], both recognizing that Semai's political corruption and Muawijhe's anarchy feed into each other, even sharing their PowerTattoo Endowment.
* EvilVsEvil: The Dark Apostles don't really get along, and even in the ranks everyone is jockeying for position without a shred of ethics. It's remarkable that the Dark Legion gets anything done.
* EvilSorcerer: Ilian is the undisputed mistress of the Dark Symmetry and its avatar, and all her cultists quickly pick up her talent with it.

%%* * GambitPileup: When you consider dominance of the solar system as the prize,prize, all schemes lose their brakes. ''Especially'' when [[TheChessmaster Illian or Semai cults]] get involved.



* MagicKnight: Most Brotherhood sergeants in Warzone. Most Brothehood personel period (yes, even the ostensibly noncombatant missionaries and administrators) in the RPG.

to:

* MadOracle: Muawijhe embodies all aspects of Madness, including nonlinear thought and intuition. His cultists quickly develop abilities as {{Seer}}s, and he's no slouch himself.
* MagicKnight: Most Brotherhood sergeants in Warzone. Most Brothehood Brotherhood personel period (yes, even the ostensibly noncombatant missionaries and administrators) in the RPG.



%%* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Cartel, some Megacorp officers as well.

Nothing is stated outright, but it's heavily implied that Bauhaus is the contemporary retail chain [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bauhaus_(company) Bauhaus]], and that Imperial grew out of clan Murdoch, which, in turn grew from UsefulNotes/{{Rupert Murdoch}}'s media empire.

%%* BadassInANiceSuit: Cartel Field Agents, at least partially. Also Brotherhood Revisors, completely.

to:

%%* * BadassInANiceSuit: Cartel Field Agents, at least partially. Also Brotherhood Revisors, completely.Agents from the original ''Warzone'' sported suits, and the heretic corporate raider John Baptiste from ''Warzone: Resurrection'' wears one as well.



* BlingOfWar: Mishima with their samurai-styled armors, Brotherhood with {{Badass Long Robe}}s and Imperial Wolf Packs to name a few.

to:

* BlingOfWar: Mishima with their samurai-styled armors, Brotherhood with {{Badass Long Robe}}s and Imperial Wolf Packs to name a few. Also, Erwin Stahler's default mode wears a full dress uniform with an embroidered sash.



** In ''Warzone: Resurrection'', you can have your Cultists play a Body Horror Russian roulette. There's a slim chance of turning into a Necromutant, a large chance of violently exploding, equally large chance of simply dropping dead and, if things go particularly badly, a slim chance of dropping dead so hard that your army's commander feels it and loses a hit point.



* ChestBurster: How Metropolitan Prophets show up on the battlefield: by popping out of enemy infantry unit members.



** A new ''Warzone: Resurrection'' Dark Legion character, John Baptiste, is a corporate raider, and his special abilities revolve around manipulating Resource cards that allow for use of special abilites.



* OneWingedAngel: Stahler from Dark Legion. When you shoot him for the first time, the fun is only starting.

to:

* OneWingedAngel: Stahler from Dark Legion. When you shoot him for the first time, the fun is only starting.he turns into a heavily armored behemoth with massive claws.


Added DiffLines:

* SpawnBroodling: the Heretic Corruptors in ''Warzone: Universe Under Siege'' could turn killed enemies into Undead Legionnaires. In ''Warzone: Resurrection'', it's given to Dark Legion's special character, Fabien von Hoelle, and Necromutant Leaders.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Warzone: Resurrection'' gives this ability to Dark Legion Heretics.

to:

%%* * CorruptCorporateExecutive: Mainly Stahler, but the backstory includes lots of others.Erwin Stahler. A high-level Bauhaus executive and a high-ranking Dark Symmetry cultist. A tie-in comic shows him morphing into a massive armored behemoth, an ability he retains in War Zone.

to:

* %%* TheDarkChick: Demnogonis, Dark Apostle of disease.



%%* TheSmartGuy: Muawhije and Semai (although actually [[MagnificentBastard Ilian trumps both]])


Added DiffLines:

* {{Uncanceled}}: Twice. First, Excelsior Entertainment revived the tabletop wargame as "Mutant Chronicles Warzone: Universe Under Siege" in 2003, coming up with new miniature designs and entire new units (Tekron Warmasters for example). Then, in 2013, Prodos Games funded the fourth edition of the tabletop wargame, "Warzone: Resurrection" through Kickstarter, while Modiphius Games started working on the third edition of the "Mutant Chronicles" role-playing game in 2015.

* AuthorityInNameOnly: Lord Mishima is in theory the head of Mishima, and as such one of the six most powerful people alive. In practice, the only people who obey him are his ten thousand or so retainers and his only duties are to represent Mishima in the Cartel, but everyone knows that all negotiations of weight with Mishima need to be done directly with one of the High Lords.



** Unfortunately, likely due to renewed efforts by the Dark Soul to crush humanity, [[CorruptChurch corruption]] has begun to take root in many of the less rigtheous individuals and subgroups.

* TheBigBad: The Dark Soul, leader of the Dark Legion and the closest thing to a genuine GodOfEvil there is in the setting. Thankfully it needs proxies to do anything.
