YMMV: Nikolai Dante
- Crowning Moment of Awesome: Loads special mention however to Nikolai taking backstabbing a little too literally to Konstantine
- Growing the Beard: The Great Game is where the story really began to come together.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Selina Solaris, a Captain Ersatz of Catwoman more than slightly resembles Halle Berry.
- An evil Russian named Vladimir Makarov? Where have we seen this before?
- Magnificent Bastard: Tsar Vladimir the Conqueror, Countessa De Wynter and Dmitri Romanov. Nikolai is shaping up to be one. He even lampshades this at one point when he cons the Countessa. His response to being called a bastard: "The biggest in the empire."
- Nightmare Fuel: Lulu's cyberdemon swarm.
- Paranoia Fuel: Nastasia pulls this on Nikolai by implying that she could have poisoned either (or both) glasses of wine they share.
