YMMV: Cavalier of the Abyss
  • Creepy Cute: The Ghost fires/Will o' wisps.
  • Iron Woobie: Ninurta Noah
  • Moral Event Horizon: Nex gives the order the complete extermination of a town because the ruler was a traitor and since he lead the town to prosperity they might be followers.
    • Later we see him order his wife's death just to draw out Ninurta who he views as a traitor.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Chaos has a very dark side, to the point where the author feels like he is trying to top himself with each chapter.
    • In the first chapter alone begins with the massacre of an entire town because the leader was a traitor and treated them well.
    • How does Nex suddue Xix? He rips the kid's heart out of his chest with his bare hands! He then forces the mortally wounded Xix to be dragged by chariot all the way to the capital.
    • This is what happens when an undead loses their heart. .
    • The face Su Yeon makes when finds Miya is disturbing to say the least.
    • The pain and suffering Miya goes through to keep the gate open.
    • One nearly stabbing Miya in the heart.
    • Caladbolg is absolutely terrifying. The innocent expressions of an eight year old child mixed with his wide capability of destruction seem to drown whatever tone the atmosphere originally possessed into absolute bleakness. Unlike other examples of Creepy Child, Jae Hoon is not possessed by an evil spirit or demon, he possessed by a god.
    • The aftereffects of a member of the Night Clan, in this case Jae Hoon himself, just touching a living organism from Chaos... NOT PRETTY.
  • The Scrappy: Seon Yu
  • Trolling Creator: A lot of chain yanking, considering the series did essentially 360 from where it had stood at the end of Immortal Regis. The author likes to drop hints and clues in every which direction, but never giving a clear answer; this is partially why the manhwa is so confusing for the first 20 or so chapters.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: So far the the Dragon Festival Side story is looking like it with the story ends with Yuan getting her desire of dancing with Xix fulfilled and the two of them seeing a Dragon spirit that is supposed to grant the wish she made, which was for happiness for everyone. A pretty happy ending... until it is revealed that the last couple to see a dragon and dance was Nex and Serin.
