Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Early in Season 1, during the first sura attack in Atera (The Night It Rained Fire arc, chapter 1-73/74), Riagara advises Pingara and Hura to avoid fighting Kasak, for there was a chance of them making an enemy out of Taksaka if they hurt his son. [[spoiler:Come chapter 3-125/410, Taksaka, just as she predicted, damn nearly loses it when he senses that Kasak is in danger due to being approached by Taraka outside of Kalibloom]].


* TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening: A particularly stressful event is generally needed for a sura to trigger their next development, though the severity can wildly vary--suras who've lived mostly uneventful lives will find it easier to advance. Maruna contrasts Samphati and Shess in this regard: the former having had a fairly decent life and unremarkable progression to 4th stage, while the latter is this trope played completely straight, with his trigger to 4th stage having been the death of a loved one.



* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: It doesn't pay to be kind as a sura. Notably, nearly every single named nastika or rakshasa who was known to be nice in general or sympathetic towards humans is dead or [=MIA=], typically because of that very kindness.

Maruna contrasts Samphati and Shess in this regard: the former having had a fairly decent life and unremarkable progression to 4th stage, while the latter is this trope played completely straight, with his trigger to 4th stage having been the death of a loved one.



* BigDamnHeroes: If Maruna's in trouble and Gandharva's exact whereabouts have been unclear for several chapters, there's a very good chance the latter will show up to save the former.



* TheMenFirst: Or disciple first, at least (mixing in with a PapaWolf attitude, given his secondary role as a ParentalSubstitute). Even though their relationship is at an all-time low and Maruna ''just'' finished giving him a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech--when Chandra suddenly shows up? Gandharva's immediate reaction is to teleport Maruna to safety, leaving himself at Chandra's mercy.



* NoSell:
** When Gandharva takes sura form and approaches the city, Maruna is initially concerned because that means he'll activate the turrets... only to realize how silly that was, when they proceed to do no damage whatsoever to Gandharva.
** In the past, Menaka deliberately orchestrated things so that Agni's Paradisial Flare--the only hope the gods had for overpowering Gandharva's HealingFactor at the time--would be ineffective.



* NoSell: [[spoiler:When she possesses Siera's body, that Paradisial Flare does no damage causes Agni to realize who the Taraka sura must be.]]



* SkilledButNaive: Mildly. While very strong for a rakshasa, he's still fairly young (by sura standards) and one of the more straightforward characters around, and therefore doesn't always grasp complexities well. He's LockedOutOfTheLoop at the start of Season 2, Gandharva and Shess both view him as still a child, and for all of Maruna's confidence, [[ObfuscatingStupidity Kaz]] plays him like a fiddle.



* ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine: What she inteds to inflict on [[spoiler:Yuta]]. He killed someone dear to her, she'll kill someone dear to him - that's right, poor [[spoiler:Leez]] got another target on her back.

* SeenItAll: Why he's unable to advance to his fifth stage. He needs an experience more intense than anything he's been through... which isn't easy when he's been alive for so long and gone through so much that almost nothing phases him anymore.

* AbusiveParents: It's becoming increasingly clear that this is the norm in the sura world, at least as far as nastikas are concerned. Nastikas' relationships with their rakshasas are guided by the relationship they have with the lovers with whom they had said children; if the daughter resembles the mother, for instance, chances are she will have a good relationship with her father (such as Shakuntala and Gandharva). If it is not the case, such as Maruna, who is said to resemble Garuda, too bad - sura fathers have been known to ''kill'' their sons if they take too much attention from their mothers. As far as mothers go, however, it's not all flowers either; it seems that those like Shess, [[spoiler:who has an absolute demon for a mother]], are those that have it ''lucky''. According to Pingara in chapter 3-126/411, [[spoiler:once a nastika's affection for their partner fades, their child is as good as a stranger. In other words, it wouldn't be out of place for a nastika to completely abandon their kid in the ''very'' dangerous sura world to fend for themselves]]. The person Pingara is talking to, Riagara, is, like them, one of Sagara's children, and the older of the pair, born before Sagara broke up with Vasuki. As seen in a flashback in chapter 1-51/52, Vasuki and Sagara hadn't been together for at least a whole century. It's possible that Riagara would have been abandonned by ''either'' parents if Vasuki hadn't remained in love with Sagara as she grew up. She was ''first stage'' back then.

** Taken a step further later on when it turns out that [[spoiler:after a Taraka was killed by Kasak on his way to Kalibloom, Menaka's soul was freed from the burden of serving as Yuta's surrogate mother. Unfortunately, the new soul was placed in the body was that of Teo Rakan]].

Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRetribution: [[spoiler: "If something happens to him, I'll blame you. I don't care if the universe is destroyed. None of it matters if my son dies."]]

Added DiffLines:

* PapaWolf: Believe it or not. In season three chapter 3-125/410, [[spoiler:he nearly flips out when he senses Taraka approaching Kasak (who was using his powers at the time) near Kalibloom. He even goes as far as to state that he doesn't care about the state of the universe if his son dies.]] One wonders if the two of them managed to fix things between them during the seven years Kasak spent living in the sura realm; [[spoiler:Taksaka was the first Vritra to agree to lend him his powers through his new earring, after all]].

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorityInNameOnly: Subtly implied, but it's there. Ever since Garuda went comatose, Maruna, as his eldest living child, was given temporary authority over the clan. Sure, it's unquestionable that he is the one in charge of the Garudas cooperating with Sagara and the Ananta clan, but that doesn't seem to be the case for the clan as a whole. It seems pretty clear that the one truly running the show is Akasha, the current NumberTwo. She's the mastermind of the plan to recover Yuta and Kalavinka from the human realm, which she managed to enforce despite opposition from other Garuda nastikas; it's also clear that Maruna was sent to help Sagara at her behest. And as soon as Samphati shows up in Willarv, what happens? She flat-out ignores Maruna in regards to Yuta and goes after him anyway, as she had agreed with her mother previously. Besides, in season three, [[spoiler:one of the reasons for Maruna to chose to use the Eye of Perishment is because she was the one that gave it to him]]. Considering that he's only a rakshasa and that the sura clans are not hereditary monarchies, it would make much more sense for his power to be inferior to hers, Garuda's son or not.

Added DiffLines:

* ButtMonkey: Suras are powerful, numerous, immortal, can't be held accountable for their actions... Must be great to be one of them, right? As it turns out, no. Not only there are the several reasons listed under BeingEvilSucks for one not to wish to be one of them, there is also the fact that they are taking the lion's share of the Taraka attack. Several clans have been stated to be close to extinction, such as the Gandharvas, the Anantas and the Garudas, and even if the Tarakas are pushed back for good due to the gods also fighting them, these losses included several high-rank suras of all clans, and thus will be felt for a ''long'' time.

Added DiffLines:

* TheRemnant: According to Leez, they have been all but wiped out, and the few remaining Anantas the ones that took refuge among the Asuras.


* LittleBitBeastly: They take after beasts.
* TokenHeroicOrc: As with the Kinnara clan and Vritra clan, they didn't retaliate against humans for forsaking fiendish magic. Although Yaksha sura are among the sura attacking cities in the present, it's because of their alliance with the Garuda (and Gandharva) clan.

non-hooved mammals.
* SuperStrength: Yakshas are physically gifted, to the point that their partially human offspring are considered to be the strongest among halfs and quarters.
* TokenHeroicOrc: As with the Kinnara clan and Vritra clan, they didn't retaliate against humans for forsaking fiendish magic. They are generally pacifistic and look down on eating humans; halfs and quarters of Yaksha ancestry are thus the most common types. Although Yaksha sura are among the sura attacking cities in the present, it's because of their alliance with the Garuda (and Gandharva) clan.


Added DiffLines:

* BadWithTheBone: Zig-zagged, as it wasn't Yaksha exactly. Rather, his bones, that were scattered throughout Willarv, are commonly used as [[PowerNullifier Power Nullifiers]].


Added DiffLines:

* {{Workaholic}}: Not by choice, mind you. After she became king, Hanuman became the number two, but due to her prefference to stay away from her clan's affairs, she left all the work to Shuri.


* RealityEnsues: The path from a raging OmnicidalManiac PsychopathicManchild to a better person is not an easy one. True atonement will often be painful, unrewarding and harsh, especially if you refuse to let go of your pride to apologize to your victims and lets yourself be distracted by more pleasant things like Gandharva does so often. That he is mistreated, belittled and hated is no surprise.



* ArchEnemy: With Asura. They fought often, and Yaksha came to the brink of killing the other king not once, but several times.

to:

* ArchEnemy: With Asura. They fought often, and Yaksha came to the brink of killing the other king not once, but several times. [[spoiler:In the end, Asura got so fed up with Yaksha that he conspired to kill him, and succeeded]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Perhaps the nicest nastika among the first generation kings, but still involved in a violent rivalry with Asura.


Added DiffLines:

* EtTuBrute: Yaksha was kind and considerate [[spoiler:towards humans, but they still allied with Asura to kill him in Willarv]]. Very much downplayed in the sense that their only option was obliteration, as pointed out by one of Yaksha's own clan members that was with him at the time.
* FatalFlaw: [[spoiler:It seems Yaksha was far too trusting for his own good. The humans he liked so much ended up playing a key role in his downfall, even if they were forced to. However, it's unknown if Yaksha was aware of it.]]


** [[spoiler:He seems to be fond of alliances, as he forced one of these upon Willarv's humans a long time in the past: if they didn't help him kill Yaksha, he'd destroy them. They complied]].



* ArchEnemy: He was Yaksha's. They fought several times, and Asura almost got himself killed at the other king's hands in many occasions. Not only that, but their clans are also enemies, as the Ananta-Asura alliance was created to counter the Yaksha-Gandharva-Garuda one.

to:

** Apparently, he was aware enough of his inferiority to Yaksha to resort to [[spoiler:forcing Willarv's human population to help him kill the other king]].

Not only that, but their clans are also enemies, as the Ananta-Asura alliance was created to counter the Yaksha-Gandharva-Garuda one. [[spoiler:In the end, Asura hated him enough to ally with the humans in Willarv to have Yaksha killed. Considering [[PunyEarthlings most nastikas' opinion on humanity]], it seems theirs was no gentle rivalry]].


* GoodParents: [[KnightTemplarParent It's to the detriment of everyone else]], but Gandharva is, if nothing else, a terrific father (overprotective, maybe, but when most sura parents lean [[ParentalNeglect the opposite way]], that could be considered an upside).



* GoodParents: Like Gandharva, she was a loving mother to her daughter for the short time they had together.



* ThouShaltNotKill: It's telling that when Agni and Shess discuss the possibility of a rakshasa who's never killed a human in their life (when every rakshasa would've at some point, even if only on orders), the ''only'' one Shess can think of is Shakuntala.

* TookALevelInBadass: Nowadays, he's one of the strongest rakshasa around with NervesOfSteel and, according to Taksaka, famous for his combat skill. You'd never guess that he used to be a ShrinkingViolet, the weakest of his mother's children, and below average in general.



* TheNeedsOfTheMany: Why they took the deal that stripped them of their emotions and forced them all into their male form. Sure, it sucked for those who liked having feelings or preferred their female forms, but it was for the good of the clan as a whole. (That Utpala ''couldn't'' accept this marked her as unique.)



* PowerAtAPrice[=/=]EquivalentExchange: At the beginning of the universe, the Vritra made a deal with Visnu. Because the dragons had such powerful breath weapons, they couldn't have children and would die if they tried. Visnu fixed this for them, but at a price: All the dragons had to become male permanently, and any Half that lives past a hundred years would have the power of a 5th stage Rakshasa. The catch here is that along with losing their gender-bender ability, the dragons also lost their emotions and thus no longer had much interest in expanding their dominance, preferring to sleep in their nests. Even worse is that the mothers of Halfs would have to loose eighty years of their life to give birth, deceasing the dragons' desire to have children even more.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Utpala, in the past (especially since she usually looked like a child). She approached him during the early days of the universe and monopolized his attention since.

* WorldsStrongestMan: Funnily enough, The Finite side story actually says Taksaka is now the strongest being in the universe because Vritra has been somehow weakened. Taksaka has enough power that he can threaten Visnu, one of the ''Primeval Gods'', and make the god of ''resurrection'' afraid.

At the beginning of the universe, Utpala was female and in love with Taksaka; she protested the strongest at the demand that all the dragons become male, and retained more emotions than most afterwards. Her strongest emotion, however, was ''envy'', leading to constant conflict with anyone else who Taksaka got close to. She's a major character in Literature/TheFinite, but is dead in the main timeline and does not appear in the webtoon proper.

* PeacefulInDeath: [[spoiler:In her last moments, her hair returns to its original blue, indicating that she dies free from the negativity that'd plagued her entire life.]]



* ReformedButRejected: [[spoiler: This is mostly self-inflicted by the time of the Finite (see TakingTheHeat), but despite her reputation as Taksaka-obsessed, she had actually gotten over her envy years ago and hadn't caused trouble for generations. Despite this, she is still framed as the one who tried to destroy Ian's village, meaning her atonement has been ignored or is unknown.]]

* TheScrappy: InUniverse. Nobody, within the Vritra clan or outside of it, liked her due to her behaving as a SpoiledBrat for Taksaka (which, in turn, just made her cling to him even more). After losing all his emotions but anger (therefore finding Utpala annoying as well), Taksaka had to publicly announce that people still weren't allowed to kill her, knowing that they'd jump at the chance otherwise.
* SpoiledBrat: How she (previously) behaved. Fittingly, before being forced into her male form, she usually took the appearance of a young girl.



* WalkingSpoiler: Her actions, backstory, and motivations in The Finite are key to the story.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Her backstory gives her a lot of reasons to act the way she does; she was forcibly assigned to the wrong gender when the Dragon clan was made a OneGenderRace, her beloved had his emotions stripped away and later rejected her, and [[spoiler:she eventually dies, hated by him, after letting him believe she was responsible for destroying Ian's village. Only Ian knows the truth, and Utpala specifically asks her to never tell anyone. Worse, by the time of The Finite, she's not actually causing trouble anymore and hasn't for generations; but nobody will ever know.]]
