* ObfuscatingStupidity[=/=][[ObfuscatingInsanity Insanity]]: She appears to be a delirious, insane religious lunatic, but she's actually a rather clever [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative bitch]]. Even Sheoldred, [[TheSpymaster the master of conspiracies and rumors]], was apparently completely fooled, and stood no chance when Elesh came for her.

* [[MushroomMan Mushroom Creature:]] It resembles a colossal, humanoid and faceless toadstool. It started out as a regular fungus, but mutated to its current size and sapience during the rebuilding of the ''Weatherlight''. Slimefoot does not use any sort of pronouns in its internal monologue when referring to itself, so its "gender" (if it even has such a thing) is undecided.

When Karn (see below) created the artificial plane of Argentum, he transfigured the powerful artifact called the Mirari into a thinking construct he named Memnarch, and charged his creation with guarding the plane of his absence. However, Memnarch was corrupted by a trace of Phyrexian oil accidentally left behind by Karn and shut his creator out of the plane. Memnarch abducted countless creatures from other planes, turning the sterile Argentum into the thriving metal ecosystem of Mirrodin in his mad search to gain a planeswalker spark. He was ultimately defeated by Glissa and her companions, allowing Karn to return to Mirrodin.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Acts as though she doesn't care about the world's imminent destruction when Sorin tells her only he can save Innistrad, but the next thing she does is ally with the Thalia to try to save it. Given that despite Sorin's claims when he was free he hadn't done anything but try to get revenge on Nahiri, she may have simply not believed him.

* MinorMajorCharacter: He's the ultimate BigBad of the Brothers' War and is responsible for pitting Urza and Mishra against each other, leading to Mishra's corruption and Urza's ascendance into a planeswalker, the latter of which was a defining event for the entire ''Magic'' storyline (reshaped the continent of Terisiare, provided ''Magic'' with its longest-running protagonist, locked Yawgmoth away from Dominaria for a millennium, etc etc).
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: His final showdown with Urza ended with him being thrown into a portal by Xantcha and Ratepe
* YouHaveFailedMe: Though not shown, it is strongly implied that Yawgmoth eventually had him killed for his failure to kill Urza and Xantcha. [[AndIMustScream Or worse]].

* CCGImportanceDissonance: Despite being one of the most powerful beings--perhaps ''the most'' powerful -- in the whole Multiverse, Yawgmoth never obtained his own card (although, that'd be like printing a card of {{God}} in, say, TabletopGame/TopTrumps). He is, however, related to the (in)famous pair of [[GameBreaker powerful banned/restricted cards]], [[http://magiccards.info/us/en/171.html Yawgmoth's Will]] and [[http://magiccards.info/ud/en/75.html Yawgmoth's Bargain]].
