*** And now even more so with signs that [[spoiler: he might end up becoming a Radiant by reviving and bonding with the "dead" spren of his Shardblade who has become an Ensemble Darkhorse in her own right.]]

* LawfulNeutral:
** As Honor became increasingly absorbed by his Shard's Intent, he started caring more and more about oaths and rules as an end in themselves and less about the human interests they were supposed to serve. The Stormfather claims he never fully fell victim to being LawfulStupid like [[UnreliableExposition Odium claims]], though.
** The Skybreakers, and the highspren who empower them, are all about this. They consider being fully good to be impossible for flawed human beings, and so devote themselves to at least being ''consistent'' by following an exterior code instead of acting on their own feelings.

* ChaoticNeutral: Cultivation, while not entirely beyond human values, cares mostly about making things change and evolve. The Nightwatcher, [[spoiler: who is a major spren splintered off from Cultivation]], is all about causing bizarre changes to people for no apparent reason except that she thinks it's interesting.

** Elhokar is a mix between a PointyHairedBoss and a SpoiledBrat and causes endless harm and trouble through his petulance and incompetence. The kicker, as revealed towards the end of ''Words of Radiance''? [[spoiler: ''He's aware of it.'' He's ''trying'' to be a good king, but no matter what he does, it turns out to be the wrong thing. He tries to trust his advisors, it turns out that they're misleading him. He tries to ignore his advisors and go with his gut, it turns out his gut is wrong. He tries to be firm, innocents suffer. He tries to be lenient, the guilty runs amock. Meanwhile, he sees people like Dalinar and Kaladin inexplicably managing to make it ''work,'' even though he can't figure out what they're doing differently than him. He's still an awful king and an unpleasant person, but man, being born heir to the throne turned out to be BlessedWithSuck for him in a big way.]]

** Lift, despite having appeared in just a single interlude chapter, has become one of people's favourites thanks to her personality and actions throughout her chapter. There's a bit of BrokenBase, though - some people find her light-hearted attitude and speech patterns annoying.
*** There is now a short story dedicated to Lift and her adventures.

* JerkassWoobie: It's hard to fully feel sorry for Szeth when he's murdering people in the name of his religion, but it's horrible to see just how disturbed the so-called peaceful philosophy of the Shin actually is, and how it can warp people's minds and actions.

** Taravangian is a ruthless ChessMaster who is murdering and betraying his way to absolute power for [[WellIntentionedExtremist what he considers the greater good]], being perfectly willing to start bloody wars and throw entire nations into anarchy if that's what advances his plans. And to make it even worse it's revealed in ''Oathbringer'' that [[spoiler: he's not even doing it to defeat Odium. He's doing it to make himself as credible a threat to Odium as possible, so that [[DirtyCoward when he surrenders to him he'll be able to get favourable terms.]] It's not even [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans utopia that justifies the means]] for Taravangian, it's just a slightly better sort of dystopia!]] At the same time, he's a frail old man who knows he's not long for this world, one who's constantly straining against the limitations of his DisabilitySuperpower to do what he thinks needs to be done, and who spends half the time afflicted with crippling guilt at the horrible things he can remember doing but can't remember why he did. It's hard to decide whether you want to punch him or give him a hug.
