  • Badass: Seriously, he's a giant winged cross-armed necromantic devil who can only be defeated by church bells. It's just temporary.
  • Big Bad: Of the last part, and arguably the whole film.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A Living Shadow in the form of Satan with a lower torso of a mountain, who's also a major Reality Warper, whose feats include necromancy, pyromancy and forced transformations, and the only way to ward him off is church bells temporally. Definitely qualifies
  • Everybody Hates Hades: Chernabog was a black god, but wasn't evil as a pre-Christian Slavic deity. Subverted as Walt said he was meant to be Satan anyway, and in the roadshow version, Deems Taylor identifies him as such.
  • Evil Is Burning Hot: Chernabog covers himself in fire near the end of "Night on Bald Mountain".
  • Evil Overlord: To the undead and demonic followers of the night, sacrificing and contorting them For the Evulz
  • For the Evulz: All things Chernabog does is because he purely has fun in it.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: With no pupils
  • Horned Humanoid: A clue that he is Satan
  • Large Ham: Chernabog is a rare non-speaking example.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Slavic for "black god" (read: devil).
  • Our Gargoyles Rock: Just look at him and try to tell us he wouldn't blend in on a church roof.
  • Reality Warper: Well, he is an all powerful demon.
  • Satanic Archetype: Very obvious, in fact they had to change the name in order to not get copyrighted, despite the narrator describing it as such.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: A timed can, but a can nonetheless.
  • Slasher Smile: When he really liked his final transformation of his transformed minions.
  • Villain by Default: Did Chernabog actually do anything inherently wrong? The answer - no, he did not, because he left no lasting damage and disappeared without having harmed anyone - apart from some demons perhaps. He summons an entire legion of demons, ghosts and otherworldly monsters so he can basically have a rave.
    • It is implied by Walt and Deems that he has done many crimes against God, so it is possible that he has harmed millions of lives before being sealed in the mountain. It's also possible he's enslaving and torturing the demons and ghosts he summoned.
  • Villain Protagonist: Of the Night On Bald Mountain.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Although the rest is cover by the mountain peak.
  • Winged Humanoid: With two very large wings.
