* ReforgedIntoAMinion: As he reveals his true appearance while explaining the full effects of Quakemaster's curse, and specifically points out that Quakemaster will be able to make use of Carrot once the curse is done with him, it is heavily implied that Obsidian was a victim of this trope himself at some point.
