* MadGod: Mad PhysicalGod in ''The Avengers,'' who is ''sincerely convinced'' that him falling through a wormhole in space in ''Thor'' was his father and brother disposing of him rather than the [[DrivenToSuicide suicide attempt]] it really was, and abuses his powers as the God of Mischief to [[BigBad terrifying effect]].

* ItsAllAboutMe: He's willing to destroy an entire planet just to work out his family issues.

* ItsAllAboutMe: He's willing to destroy (in ''Thor'') or subjugate (in ''The Avengers'') an entire planet just to work out his family issues.


* InternalizedCategorism: Loki was raised in an atmosphere of profound racism against Frost Giants, so finding out that he actually ''was'' one at an already incredibly stressful point in his life led to him cracking up. In ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', Loki shows signs of [[PsychologicalProjection projecting]] ''heavily'' onto Banner vis-a-vis the concept of embracing one's own monstrosity. Bonus points for ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} detaining him in their prefab Hulk cage.

* BlueIsHeroic: He briefly wears a blue costume in ''Ragnarok'' to blend in better on Sakaar, but is primarily featured in it in promotional materials (posters, art books e.t.c) after ''Infinity War'' whenever they need to refer to his more redeeming side. Thus in the "Marvel Studios Visual Dictionary" he is dubbed "villain and hero" and shown in green to the left (as a villain) and in blue to the right (as a hero).

* BystanderSyndrome: He adopts this attitude in ''Ragnarok'' as he begins to forge a new life for himself on Sakaar despite knowing that Hela has been unleashed on Asgard. When Thor arrives later, Loki attempts to convince his brother to take a similar stance. However, Thor, as the hero, completely rejects this option. [[spoiler:Loki then [[ChangedMyMindKid Changes His Mind]].]]

* HolyHalo: In ''Ragnarok,'' Asgardian frescoes depict him with it.. in dark green clothes, complete with a KubrickStare and a menacing grin. They were commissioned by Odin as part of official propaganda, likely before the events of ''Thor'' and ''The Avengers'' that made Loki completely unworthy of such imagery. [[spoiler:And then he dies a painful death trying to save his brother, eyes to the sky.]]

** ''The Dark World'': After their mother is murdered, Loki experiences a complete emotional breakdown in his prison cell while Thor starts to plot to avenge her. During their clash with Malekith, Loki defends Jane whereas Thor is the aggressor.

* TookALevelInJerkass: In ''Thor,'' he is a TragicVillain and WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds. In ''The Avengers,'' he is a psychopath who enjoys ripping a guy's eye out, and directly or indirectly kills 154 people (80 people in the first two days -- according to Black Widow, including those who died in and after the explosion caused by the Tesseract, plus 74 causalities during the Battle of NY -- according to [[https://i.imgur.com/xX1Ac7R.png General Ross's data]] in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''). The level is gone after his HumiliationConga.

* {{Jerkass God|s}}: He is the God of Mischief, and in ''Thor'' and ''The Avengers'' he hopes to earn the appreciation (or worship) he craves and exact revenge on his brother by attempting first to kill every Frost Giant in existence and then to subjugate the entire population of Earth. Zig-zagged, because after that [[spoiler:he gets a slow redemption arc in the next three films]].


* AGodAmI: Styles himself as the [[GodEmperor God-King]] of Earth in ''The Avengers''. While he has some basis to claim this, he is the only Asgardian that puts on airs. [[Spoiler:That is, until Hela shows up.]]

* HisOwnWorstEnemy: Loki never quite fit in, and TheReveal of being adopted from a race of "monsters" made him struggle with his personal identity. This drives much of his actions, from the horrific attempt to prove himself to Odin in ''Thor'', to invading Earth as a "recompense for imagined slights" in ''The Avengers'', to commissioning a play as a means of self-aggrandizement in ''Ragnarok''. Only by ''Infinity War'' did he find peace. His actor explains it this way:
