Added DiffLines:

* WillfullyWeak: A rare VillainProtagonist version is in play with Lucifer. Lucifer at full strength is equalled only by his bother and surpassed only by God. Yet often he doesn't bring this raw unimaginable power to bear in his dealings or affairs while going about his goals. Justified somewhat by the fact that Lucifer is prideful and an extremely intelligent manipulator who prefers using his wit rather than force. From his point of view, any thug can use force and doing so shows little creativity or imagination. He ego demands that he never stoop to the level of those he sees as beneath him and he loves to prove that he's the smartest guy in the room who doesn't even need his virtually limitless powers to beat his opponents. Crushing enemies with a handicap is definitely the hallmark of somebody as prideful as Lucifer.


* InnocentFlowerGirl: A gender-flipped example; he spends much of his time in Hell gardening, and is especially fond of flowers, offering a marigold to Remiel in an attempt to comfort him.

* NeverMyFault: It goes without saying but as one of the most prideful beings in existence, Lucifer almost never accepts responsibility or blame for anything because that would require caring about others or having empathy. Often he likes to play it off as other people believing things to be one way while Lucifer pulls ACertainPointOfView on them. He's also very careful with ExactWords because he knows how to manipulate people and when others accuse him of wrong doing he can go RulesLawyer on them and be technically off the hook for the horrible stuff he's a part of.

to:

* BrotherSisterIncest: It's implied this is the ''real'' reason she hates Lucifer so much.
-->'''Lucifer''': ... And I don't ''want'' to lay a hand on you. Which was always the ''problem'', wasn't it?

* BullyingADragon: Of all the siblings he could attempt to bully, he picks the most dangerous. It works out ''exactly'' the way you'd expect.
* HolierThanThou: Since he's an angel, he naturally assumes that every action he takes is justified, and takes advantage of his status to declare war on Lux (which gets a number of his siblings killed).

Added DiffLines:

* TheAloner: While Lucifer truly cares for a small group of people and even loves Mazikeen, it would cause the bile to rise up in his throat to admit strong attachment to anyone. Part of this is due to his overwhelming pride and his desire to never show weakness, never be controlled by anything or dependent on anyone. The other reason is that he's one of a set of equally powerful twin brothers that are second only to god and beyond pretty much everything else. While Lucifer is prideful, he not wrong in his believe that almost no one and nothing can relate to his experiences.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassBoast: Gives one to Celtis in ''The House Of Windowless Rooms'':
--> '''Jill:''' That [[MindControl mind control]] crap may go over real big with the sad little fuckers you normally feed on but the truth is, sweetheart, the odds are ''[[PrecisionFStrike shit]]''. I'm carrying passengers and they wrote the book on that mind control shit. So here's my best offer: you get up on your feet now - or else you're going to ''die'' lying down.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: On the giving end. She overshadows her boss' magic show by using the powers of the Basanos. Note that at the time she hadn't willingly accepted the Basanos and so the powers she had were practically a drop in the bucket compared to after she formerly accepted the Basanos.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: She beats Celtis by reminding her of her rusty memory, which causes Celtis to completely lose her shape and dissolve.
