* AllForNothing: [[spoiler: Upon learning that he has at best only two more years to live due to terminal lung cancer, it sinks in for Bormann that he doesn't have enough time to keep the Reich going, and that all he's really done is delaying the inevitable.]]

* AnimalMotifs: Dogs, and more specifically, bulldogs. Bormann is described as rather [[TheNapoleon short and stout, making his authority loudly known thanks to a short temper]] and wanting to keep an edge against his perceived rivals. This is especially present with the events where the US Presidents meet with him, who usually make comparisons between him and bulldogs. He even has a pet bulldog of his own, named "Adolf."



* BloodFromTheMouth: [[spoiler: Bormann's 1972 portrait has blood stains from hemoptysis on his collars - a symptom of progressing lung cancer]].

* SanitySlippage: The more that the Gang of Four [[spoiler:strips Speer of his powers and renders him their puppet]], the more angered and unhinged Speer grows. [[spoiler:It's to the point where he imagines and daydreams himself killing Schmidt.]]



* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Speer rapidly goes off the deep end as the slave revolt commences and ''especially'' if the Gang of Four beats him in the power struggle, attempting and failing to kill Schmidt, and being reduced to a PuppetKing as a result.]]

* ExoticExtendedMarriage: [[spoiler:Bormann legalizes polygamy at the height of his power during the Opulence, justifying it with man's nature to spread his seed everywhere and calling monogamy Jewish Christian nonsense that prevented the growth of the Aryan race. The German public, predictably enough to anyone but Bormann, is irked at the very thought of this concept.]]

* {{Realpolitik}}: Bormann can engage in diplomacy with the United States as one of his focuses, and it is done to lessen their nations' hostilities in favor of [[EnemyMine aiming their focuses on Japan and its sphere]]. This includes a series of different events for Bormann to negotiate how they'll operate, ceremonial visits, and pictures and discussions between the countries' leaders.



* CivilWar: [[spoiler:If Göring attempts to dethrone Schörner, the Reich descends into a second civil war between the two and Hans Speidel]].

to:

* CivilWar: [[spoiler:If If Göring attempts to dethrone [[spoiler:dethrone Schörner, the Reich descends into a second civil war between the two and Hans Speidel]].



* {{Deconstruction}}: Göring's story is a twisted take on the time-honored tradition of the "world conquest" playthrough of various Paradox games, examining in a bit more detail exactly what kind of mentality and culture might lead a nation to try to dominate the entire world, and how well it might actually work out in practice.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Göring is not fully on-board with the militarists' warmongering, and finds some of the more ambitious invasion plans too ludicrous if not outright suicidal.

to:

* DifficultButAwesome: [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]] into being nearly impossible to achieve. Declaring war on Burgundy with "Fall Schwarz" is meant to be one of the last resorts to keep Göring's plans afloat, as doing so will lead to [[spoiler:nuclear devastation since Burgundy is one of the nuclear states]]. On the ''very'' slim chance that it's pulled off, [[spoiler:Burgundy's leadership is captured and executed, and the rogue state becomes an RK, firmly stopping one of the most dangerous powers in the world]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Göring is not fully on-board with the militarists' warmongering, and finds some of the more ambitious invasion plans too ludicrous if not outright suicidal.



* {{Nepotism}}: [[spoiler: After the second German Civil War starts, Hermann Göring can appoint his nephew Heinrich Theodore Göring, who is an under-qualified low-ranking officer, to lead the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht to ensure that he has a trusted relative in the Militarist leadership, after Schörner turns on him]].

Added DiffLines:

* PayEvilUntoEvil: "Fall Schwartz" sees him declare war on Burgundy and mobilizing their troops to conquer the rogue state. It's Deconstructed as such action will lead to [[spoiler:nuclear destruction from Burgundy's plans for MAD]]. However, if the operation is ''somehow'' successful in defeating them [[spoiler:without causing the nukes to fly, a special event will play out where a disheveled Himmler and his men are dragged to Germany for mock trials that dub them guilty of all their accused crimes, before being publically hanged and having their coprses burned]]. [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing The people of Germany cheer]].

Added DiffLines:

* HeManWomanHater: As an orthodox national socialist, Bormann is big on masculinity and dismissive of women in general. He indirectly insults and directly snubs Margaret Chase Smith if she is president during his state visit to America, and during the Opulence he attempts to institute polygamy for blatantly-misogynist reasons.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: Quite literally, during the lead up to his attempt to open diplomacy with the United States, when a friend's dog scares his own and the insecure Bormann [[https://preview.redd.it/pbv1wsw0js961.png?width=532&format=png&auto=webp&s=0871ec7b8761e678ba782662c5452e81f8a32633 quickly retaliates]].


Added DiffLines:

* TheNapoleon: Bormann is not a man of great physical stature, and he is pretty insecure about it. His [[https://www.reddit.com/r/TNOmod/comments/ksbzig/all_of_the_possible_us_presidentmartin_bormann/ state visits to the United States]] almost all reference his short stature, and a few of them even feature him being humiliated by it.


* AlasPoorVillain: If it's at all possible to portray the greatest monster of the 20th century with a degree of humanity, the event describing Hitler's death manages to do just that without downplaying or overlooking his crimes. There's something oddly poignant about seeing such a feared and powerful figure reduced to a weak old man who can barely remember his life's accomplishments through a haze of senility and morphine. Despite everything he accomplished in his life, his last thoughts end up being of [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes his wife Eva Braun]] rather than his military conquests. [[AllForNothing It's as though none of it mattered in the end,]] which is apropos given that the vast empire of greed, cruelty, and hatred he built completely falls apart after his death. It reminds you of the frailty of human life to see death finally catch up with someone as important as him (in much the same way it catches up with all men).

* BoringButPractical: Unlike Speer's borderline revolutionary gang of Four, Bormann's reforms are quite mundane: instead of freeing the slaves (or adopting them into "Führer's Own" work battalions), Bormann simply repatriates the slaves(technically freeing them and sending them to their country of origin where they'll be working for low wages out of sight) and promotes Germans to get the jobs in Germany. Instead of dismantling the corporations and take them over via threats, while actively pumping money into small businesses and nationalization, Bormann makes deals with said megacorps and reins in their power with sweet talking, leaving German capitalist system alone. [[spoiler:He will take over some corporations but only if their leaderships are revealed to be plotting against him]]. Rather than making a new intelligence agency, he trusts Gehlen to solve the problems. Rather than making revolutionary research projects and setting up the Internet, he funnels money into a computerized "decision network" to patch up the leaks in the economic system and increases efficiency. Unlike Speer who will either change the world for the better [[spoiler: thanks to his subordinates puppeting him, or cement fascism]], Bormann fixes the leaks in the boat and stops the rocking. And it works almost as good as Speer's. [[spoiler:Until the RAF starts its rampage.]]

** [[spoiler: Later on in Bormann's story, Gehlen will tip Bormann off on a massive conspiracy inside his government (known as the June of Deceit).
