* TheDogBitesBack: Jiang Cheng never liked Wen Ning [[SinsOfOurFathers for being a Wen]], and that's only the tipping point of his hatred (even if it's not without reason). As such, he's nothing but rude and disrespectful towards the latter, calling him a thing or dog and threatening to burn him to ashes several times (either directly or otherwise). Wen Ning takes it in stride, but Jiang Cheng's antagonizing of Wei Wuxian in Lotus Pier proves to be the last straw that makes [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Wen Ning disobey a direct order]] from Wei Wuxian and [[spoiler: tell Jiang Cheng about how he was really able to regain his powers, [[JerkassRealization leaving the latter shaken and guilty]] in the process]].

* AbusiveParent: Downplayed; she doesn't think that highly of Jin Guangyao and talks to him in an overly harsh manner. This may have something to do with the fact that he's one of the many children born from her husband's illicit affairs, but still.



* BirdsOfAFeather: She got along well with Yu Ziyuan, thanks to their similar personalities and worldviews.



* MumLooksLikeASister: In the novel, she's stated to look like she's in her twenties, even though that's ''her son's'' age. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as high-level cultivators like her manage to keep their youthful looks for longer than the average person.

Added DiffLines:

* LockedOutOfTheLoop: It's implied Jin Guangshan kept him in the dark about the seediest activities of the Lanling Jin Sect. For example, Jin Zixuan invited Wei Wuxian to Jin Ling's party with his honestly best intentions, unaware that his father and cousin were going to use the invitation as an excuse to ambush and assassinate Wei Wuxian.


* {{Irony}}: He's the only member of the Jin family who has a personal feud with Wei Wuxian long before the latter founded demonic cultivation. But after the Sunshot Campaign was over, Jin Zixuan is the only one in the family who ''doesn't'' condemn Wei Wuxian for using TheDarkArts.

** At the climax, Jin Guangyao reveals that he merely took advantage of circumstances to send Wei Wuxian to his death. Wei Wuxian, he argues, was already on a path to self-destruction. He also points out that Jiang Cheng didn't help matters as he allowed his pride to strain his relationship with Wei Wuxian, whereas if they had trusted each other more, then Wei Wuxian would have been nigh untouchable since no one would want to mess with an ally of one of the Four Great Clans. Of course, this doesn't downplay or excuse all the crimes Jin Guangyao committed.

Jin Guangyao reveals that he merely took advantage of circumstances to send Wei Wuxian to his death. Wei Wuxian, he argues, was already on a path to self-destruction. He also points out that Jiang Cheng didn't help matters as he allowed his pride and envy to strain his relationship with Wei Wuxian, whereas if they had trusted each other more, then Wei Wuxian would have been nigh untouchable since no one would want to mess with an ally of one of the Four Great Clans.

* TokenGoodTeammate: Aside from his father (who's already long dead), Jin Ling is the only other member of the Jin family who's not involved in any shady business, nor is he even willing to if he knew about it.

* NotMeThisTime: While him sending Jin Zixuan to Qiongqi Path ended with the latter's death, he never planned such a thing to happen; Jin Zixuan's death is one of the few things Wei Wuxian is completely responsible for.



* CallingTheOldManOut: He chews out his uncle in the final arc not once, but twice, for always driving Wei Wuxian away with his hostilities.



* ThisIsUnforgivable: While Jin Ling initially grew to like "Mo Xuanyu", when he found out about his true identity he doesn't take it well and stabs Wei Wuxian. However, even that was a knee-jerk reaction as he already had a hard time hating Wei Wuxian by then, and he [[spoiler: completely lets go of his grudge after learning of the true circumstances behind his parents' deaths and how Wei Wuxian was used as TheScapegoat]], to the point that he chews out his uncle for always driving Wei Wuxian away with his hostilities.

* WildCard: While Nie Huaisang may be TheChessmaster behind almost everything that happened in the story, he's neither a hero nor a villain, having his own intentions and being on his own side but isn't evil. Mo Xiang Tong Xiu even confirmed that Nie Huaisang is not the bad guy or anything close to one.



* AdaptationalJerkass: She acts a lot harsher towards Wen Ning and Wei Wuxian in the ''donghua'' and is more unsympathetic towards Wei Wuxian's predicament and Wen Ning's reasons for helping him; although she still hides them from the other Wens and heals their wounds.

She does soften her edges after Wei Wuxian rescues her brother and family.


* RevengeMyopia: Played with. When he realizes that Nie Huaisang has been masterminding a revenge plot against him the entire time, Jin Guangyao is enraged as if he was wronged for no good reason. Even when accounting their combative relationship and ''terrible'' history, depending on the reader's viewpoint, Jin Guangyao's murder Nie Mingjue isn't entirely unwarranted; but either way it only makes sense that Nie Huaisang would want to act against him after finding out the truth. However, another way of looking at it is that he's completely shocked that the culprit behind his downfall is the person he ''least'' expected.

* TheDogBitesBack: Jiang Cheng never liked Wen Ning [[SinsOfOurFathers for being a Wen]], and that's only one of the many reasons why he hates the latter's guts. As such, he's nothing but rude and disrespectful towards the latter, calling him a thing or dog and threatening to burn him to ashes several times (either directly or otherwise). Wen Ning takes it in stride, but Jiang Cheng's antagonizing of Wei Wuxian in Lotus Pier proves to be the last straw that makes [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Wen Ning disobey a direct order]] from Wei Wuxian and [[spoiler: tell Jiang Cheng about how he was really able to regain his powers, [[JerkassRealization leaving the latter shaken and guilty]] in the process]].

* UndyingLoyalty: A literal example; even as a sentient corpse, his loyalty to Wei Wuxian knows no end. Unfortunately, this earns him the ire of [[CrazyJealousGuy Lan Wangji]] whenever [[spoiler: the latter gets drunk]]. At the very least, his devotion is purely platonic.

* DeadlyDecadentCourt: While there are ground rules that all the cultivation clans follow, what makes the Jin Sect stand out is not how many prominent cultivators they've harbored; but instead, their infighting over political power. This was particularly the case when the sect was still led by Jin Guangshan, whose ambition to secure power over all the other sects caused arguably more trouble than the Wen Sect ever did.

* ItIsDehumanizing: He's a victim of this from several cultivators, being referred to as either a weapon or a dog.



* HateSink: He's easily one of the most reprehensible characters of the story, and is arguably even more loathsome than his father.

* {{Expy}}: It's easy to see Mo Xuanyu as one to Shen Qingqiu from ''Literature/RenZhaFanPaiZiJiuXiTong'', since both are characters who had to die for the protagonists -- who already died once -- to get reincarnated (in a sense) and get the plot rolling. The difference is that in ''Mo Dao Zu Shi'', there's no transmigration involved.

* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Although it's also a result of the ''donghua's'' second season being a CompressedAdaptation, Madam Jin is more gentle in the AnimatedAdaptation and isn't nearly as pushy in trying to get Jin Zixuan and Jiang Yanli together. While she still calls for her son to accompany Jiang Yanli back to Koi Tower, it was more of telling her to at least show some courtesy. She also doesn't go into a subtle game of tug-of-war with Wei Wuxian over whether Jiang Yanli should leave together with Jin Zixuan or not.
