YMMV: Lucifer

  • Alas, Poor Scrappy: Ibriel and Cal. Twice. And Mahu, Zonaquel and Remiel
  • Damsel Scrappy: Rachel, Mona. Elaine at first, but she got over it. Subverted with Mazikeen.
  • Foe Yay: Rudd and Lys, after the break-up, though they may be more of an ongoing Masochism Tango. Also Lucifer and Izanami at the end.
    • And then there's Cestis and Mazikeen.
  • Exiled from Continuity: By virtue of being a spinoff of a Exiled from Continuity title, since DC superheroes and the world of Morpheus and Lucifer can't touch or interact without cheapening one or the other. Lucifer has had a few cameos.
  • Ho Yay: Jayesh and Karl. See also Bi the Way, above. And that's just in canon.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Lucifer himself, fittingly enough. and God. Almost everything ends up being part of a careful plot by one or the other and when it's not, they spin up a plan B that usually ends up working better.
  • Memetic Mutation: Eventually used as part of the "Good Guy Lucifer" advice animals.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: If you're the sort of person who tries to decipher it, Mazikeen's slurred semi-legible speech quickly becomes very irritating.
  • Tear Jerker: About half the death scenes, even when the characters get better, not helped by the large number of woobies; also the relationships between Jayesh and Karl, Rudd and Lys, and Elaine and her foster parents, and the fates of a number of characters you wouldn't expect to miss, or even actively loathe. Let's not even get started on the break-ups.
    • Especially the note Karl finds at the end of The Wheels of God story arc in Morningstar. "He knows. He has always known."
  • The Woobie: Jill, Michael, Mr. Easterman. Elaine. Thole. Charlie. Erishad. And Jayesh.
    • To some extent Lucifer is an Iron Woobie / Jerkass Woobie, given as he spends his entire existance striving for things he probably can never have.
