* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Darkstorm has proven to be quite cunning and probably wrote a page or two of the EvilOverlordList. For example, he is perfectly willing to help others, as long as it furthers his goals, such as saving the other Darkling Lords in the first episode in exchange for their servitude. He even chastises Virulina for her selfish attitudes regarding others.
-->'''Virulina:'''"I, for one, would never try to rescue one of my friends.
-->'''Darkstorm:''' "That, my dear, is why you ''have'' no friends".

** In the comics, Galadria and Virulina received, after a few issues, issues and a well-deserved dressing-down of Merklynn for shortchanging them, magical shields with the powers of healing and sickness respectively.

* AndroclesLion: Arzon and Witterquick are tasked to find a dragon's claw. When a Winged Dragon is injured, Arzon stitches its wounds rather than killing it, much to Witterquick's protests. The Winged Dragon then helps the duo finds a dragon's claw and fly them to Merklynn's Shrine.

* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: In "The Power of the Wise", Leoric and Feryl fall off the edge of a cliff. They survive the fall by catching hold of a [[LiteralCliffhanger conveniently placed ledge]], but Cravex, having seen the two Spectral Knights fall, automatically assumes they're dead and later takes a sadistic delight in telling their comrades:

* NeverSayDie: While "destroy" is used, "slay" is also fairly common. ''Very'' averted, however, in "Lion Hunt", in which every Spectral Knight says "Dead?!" unbelievingly, as the presumed fate of Leoric. Darkstorm even tells his allies to kill the villagers!

-->Don't feel too bad. Leoric and Feryl took a little dive off the edge of the mountain. I've got a feeling neither one of them will ever be thirsty again!

* {{Animorphism}}

to:

* {{Animorphism}}{{Animorphism}}: While the staves had limited charges (and could only be recharged by Merklynn directly, usually in return for doing a quest for him), the Knights and Lords seemed to have unlimited use of the ability to transform into their totem animal. The animal they turn into is the same color as the totem itself (blue for the Spectral Knights, green for the Darkling Lords).



* BadPowersBadPeople: The Darkling Lords all have totems based on creatures that, InUniverse, seem to have unpleasant symbolism at best (in addition the array of predators and scavengers, there's TheBrute with a KillerGorilla form, the YesMan who becomes an innocuous skittering beetle, and a cowardly figure whose form is vaguely armadillo-like). Beyond that, their power staffs consist of three based on Destruction, Decay and Fear, and Lexor's power of Invulnerability, which is implied to have been granted based on his cowardice.
** GoodPowersGoodPeople: In comparison, the Spectral Knights have noble animal totems and far more benevolent-themed power staffs: Knowledge, Wisdom, Might and Speed.

Beyond that, their power staffs consist of three based on Destruction, Decay and Fear, and Lexor's power of Invulnerability, which is implied to have been granted based on his cowardice.

* BatmanGambit: Double-subversion. After Darkstorm said he wouldn't share the loot with the rest of the Darkling Lords, Lexor tried to arouse Cravex's anger so he'll attack Darstorm for him. However, Cravex saw right through Lexor's scheme and attacked him... and then everybody else, including Darkstorm.

* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Played with. Most of the characters spend as much time with their helmets on as with them off. However, all the Spectral Knights except for Witterquick have open-faced helmets while the Darkling Lords all have [[FacelessGoons face-concealing ones]].
