* EldritchAbomination: This thing is MUCH more powerful than Amon.


* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:The Hybrids have been wiped out as of the end of the main ''Legacy of the Void'' campaign, outside of a few Void Thrashers that appear in the epilogue]].

* BondVillainStupidity: [[spoiler: By imprisoning Ouros, but not keeping an close eye on him. Ouros managed to inform Zeratul on how to undermine Amon and eventually banish him back to the Void. Made worse in the epilogue, where Ouros managed to call out to Kerrigan to rescue him. Kerrigan answered, together with the terrans and protoss as backup.]]



* EvilIsHammy: The way that he speaks, it's already a sign that he's hungry for massive scenery devouring action.



* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Came out as this in the first two ''Starcraft II'' campaigns, where very little was known about him aside from the fact he is antagonistic to pretty much everyone, really powerful and wants to destroy all life in the Universe. ''Legacy of the Void'' eventually gives him a bit more backstory and fleshes out his motivations.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler:WordOfGod is that he initially wanted to become a Xel'naga, but later came to regret it when he discovered that being a god wasn't all it was cracked up to be. The Xel'naga cycle involves them seeding life around the universe, and then they spend their lives sleeping until it's time to pass their power onto a new generation of Xel'naga.]]

* AffablyEvil: Even when trying to kill the heroes, he acts friendly and personable.


Added DiffLines:

* FauxAffablyEvil: During ''Brood War'', he acts friendly and personable. "Acts" being the operative word. In ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'' his true personality comes out, and it turns out he has nothing but contempt for everyone in the galaxy.

Added DiffLines:

* BadBoss: He has '''zero''' qualms about letting his followers die. He even ''encourages'' the Tal'darim to slaughter each other in constant bouts of Rak'Shir for his own amusement.


* {{Hypocrite}}: In the final mission [[spoiler: he calls Kerrigan a murderer and a hypocrite, clearly forgetting that he himself is one. He talks about bringing salvation and ending suffering, but he intends to kill everyone on the universe, aside from himself and his hybrid. Also, Kerrigan spent most of her time as Queen of Blades partially following the directive Amon put on the Zerg. After being cleansed from Amon's corruption, she turned into a NobleDemon, showing regret for her past actions and trying her best to avoid unecessary losses, as seen on Char and Korhal.]]

* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:In his eyes, the eternal cycle of the Xel'Naga only results in perpetuating conflict and suffering, and by breaking it he intends to end what he sees as an endless torment for all of existence. Rohana reveals near the end of the ''Legacy of the Void'' campaign that this is just an excuse; beneath his grand vision, Amon really is only driven by his hatred and spite for all living things.]]

* UnreliableNarrator: The revelation that he impersonated Tassadar's spirit throws all of the "spirit"'s words in doubt, including the Overmind's true intentions (although these are confirmed to an extent by Zeratul's scans of its corpse).

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: First he sided with the Dominion against the UED (for which even Admiral [=DuGalle=] called him a turncoat and a traitor), then he betrayed the UED to the Zerg, then he abandoned Kerrigan to the three-pronged attack by the Dominion, the UED, and the Protoss. He later sides with the Dominion and the Tal'darim that were stationed below Skygirr Station. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], he was actually serving [[GodOfEvil Amon]] all along.
