* CompleteMonster: [[TheChessmaster Nyarlathotep himself]] seamlessly [[BigBad arranges every single wrong]] in the comic for the purpose of unleashing his master Azathoth unto the universe. Having spent centuries walking among mankind among disasters and people he's driven to madness, Nyarlathotep spends hundreds of years arranging for the events of the Godwar between him and Nodens, intending to raise Cthulhu and use the ensuing chaos to draw forth Azathoth. To this end, Nyarlathotep, under the guise of "Mr. Arkham," gradually drives the town of Arkham into increasing insanity, ruining the life of Cy Morgan before having him tortured and leaving his insane form as almost an afterthought. Bringing his followers into the world one-by-one through the deaths of others, Nyarlathotep in particular has a [[WouldHurtAChild seven-year-old child]] driven to homicidal insanity before having his form mutated and infested by one of his followers after having both his parents killed. Nyarlathotep hypnotizes the residents of a bar to burn themselves alive; hideously [[FacialHorror deforms the face]] of sheriff Raymond Dirk; and has the brain of his human follower Connor painfully extracted and set up to look in a mirror until [[AndIMustScream he's driven to insanity, unable to move or die]]. The exemplary point of Nyarlathotep's manipulations is outlined in the prequel comic ''Nemesis'', where, solely to eliminate worship of a rival god, Nyarlathotep drives the population of Atlantis to frenzy through his followers and influence, has their king driven to savagery and eventually publicly executed by his own brother, and then sacrifices the entire city to the Deep Ones on a whim, keeping the sole survivor trapped in the form of a cat he dubs Nemesis to stand by him forever. Nyarlathotep perpetuates torture, suicide, and insanity around him wherever he goes, relishing chaos itself and striving for nothing less than to drive all humanity insane [[ForTheEvulz for kicks]] before [[KillAllHumans eradicating them]].
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Cy, after going utterly insane due to the events of the Godwar, losing everyone he loved, and being utterly powerless for much of the story [[spoiler: ends up personally thwarting Nyarlathotep's plans at the cost of his own life, by banishing him back to the court of Azathoth. Even Nodens is impressed by this.]]
** The Harlot also deserves much of the credit, as it was her plan and aid that enabled this
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Harlot, a green-skinned mutant of a woman in a doll's outfit, is probably the closest we'll ever get to FanDisservice in a Lovecraft story. [[spoiler:That she out-manuevered Nyarlathotep and manipulated the entire cast might have something to do with it, too.]]
