YMMV: The Pendragon Adventure
  • Badass Decay — Saint Dane is nowhere near as scary when he's holding all of the cards, possibly because a lot of his creepiness comes from good ol' fashioned Paranoia Fuel - Saint Dane can be anyone, anywhere, at any time. Once he's won, he really has no reason to hide, which means the Travelers know where he is at all times.
  • Complete Monster: Saint Dane is a master manipulator who kills huge numbers of people, seems to enjoy it, and has been personally responsible for multiple parallel universes ("territories") plunging into mayhem and possibly evil. He tried to give nukes to Nazi Germany. His goal is a complete Crapsack World, and he intends to destroy even that, along with the afterlife, to replace it with his own version where he is God.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Saint Dane. Looking like Sephiroth in the graphic novels doesn't help matters.
  • Epileptic Trees - a somewhat common speculation on forums what was all the territories would turn out to be Earth. Despite the fact that Eelong is in a star cluster and Denduron has three suns.
  • Magnificent Bastard — Saint Dane is.
  • Misaimed Fandom — Those who love Saint Dane despite his monstrous villainy rather than because of it. It's safe to say that a lot of fans wanted him to win at the end of the series. Also, some love Nevva Winter even though she's almost as much of a monster as him.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Can't remember where he crossed it, but a few of Saint Dane's acts could be worthy to called this.
  • Paranoia Fuel — Saint Dane could be ANYONE.
  • Seasonal Rot — Many consider the last three books, as awesome as they are, to be terrible compared to the ones before.
