* SpiritualLicensee: VideoGame/WatchDogs is essentially the Daemon's Darknet for {{PS4}}, and Aiden Pearce is essentially Matthew Sobol minus the terminal cancer that forced him to empower Brian Gragg AKA Loki Stormbringer as his successor in his war against corruption.

* BoringInvincibleHero: Matthew Sobol is basically a Boring Invincible ''AntiHero'', which is kind of impressive for a PosthumousCharacter.



** Sobol only had to predict how officials would react well enough to give time to get human operatives into the network for resilience. [[HumansAreBastards He probably didn't have to guess real hard.]]. [[spoiler: And after all, his goal in the end was to get enough humans into the network that they could sustain themselves without his help. The daemon itself was ultimately just an effective Trojan into human society.]]
* InvincibleVillain [=/=] VillainSue: The Daemon is the TropeCodifier for both, and HOW!!!!!!!! [[http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4699575-daemon As seen on the one-star reviews,]] the ridiculous degree to which this trope is used was a fairly common criticism of the novel.

* JerkassWoobie: In ''Freedom™'', Loki graduates to this from a regular {{Jerkass}} when [[spoiler:the Major captures and tortures him, chopping off the tip of each finger, cutting out his eyes and his tongue. He briefly returns to being a Jerkass after being saved by his Nazi buddy, but hurriedly returns to Woobie status when the Burning Man bot [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome cuts him down to level 10]], stripping him of the power he had worked for years to obtain (and been tortured for).]] Even the other members of the Darknet [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming agree]], [[spoiler: gathering around him as he cries]].

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: The government sets up a task force, very secret, highly classified, accessible by only those with the highest level of clearance. Meanwhile, in the Darknet, [[spoiler:the base has a giant glowing neon sign hovering over it in the Darknet's AR space, reading "Super Secret Anti-Daemon Task Force Base"]]. Closely followed (both in hilarity, and chronologically) by Loki [[spoiler: dragging a box over the whole base, right-clicking, and selecting "Kill Everyone" to order his minions to... well... you know.]]

* CompleteMonster: The Major brutally kills Roy Merritt, cuts off/out Loki's fingers, tongue, and eyes, orders his mooks to throw Sebeck and Laney into a wood-chipper, and saves teenage girls from brothels... so that he can get them Darknet accounts and then behead them to steal their Darknet identity, keeping their heads chemically alive to spoof the biometrics. Oh, and he came up with the real "Operation Exorcist" plan to expunge Daemon from civilization: {{Alpha Strike}}s. Invade darknet communities with full military force, then send in mercenaries who proceed to destroy every piece of technology present and execute every man, woman and child.
