* TheAgeless: Warlocks stop aging once they reach adulthood.
* AgentPeacock: He features glitter eye shadow, rainbow leather pants, and awesome ass-kicking.
* AnimalEyes: Magnus has greenish-yellow eyes with vertically-slit pupils, like a cat.
* BadassFingerSnap: Lampshaded in ''City of Ashes'', when he gives a warning finger-snap, and somebody feels the need to explain:
-->'''Magnus:''' There's no need to clarify my finger snap. The implication was clear in the snap itself.
* BellyButtonless: Being a warlock (half human[=/=]half demon), he has no bellybutton.
%% * BetaCouple: [[spoiler: With Alec.]] Doubles as BattleCouple.
* BlueCollarWarlock: He lives in a warehouse loft, throws wild house parties, generally behaves like a New York hipster and otherwise seems entrenched in modern urban culture despite his great age. Also does spellcasting for a fee as his primary source of income.
* BreakoutCharacter: Magnus Bane was only meant to have a minor role ''City of Bones'', but due to the amount of positive reception by the fans he received an expanded role as both a secondary character and [[spoiler:Alec Lightwood]]’s love interest – appearing in every book in the series. He also went on to appear in the prequel series, ''Literature/TheInfernalDevices'', and got a series of short stories that were told from his perspective, ''Literature/TheBaneChronicles''.
* TheDandy: No matter what era he is seen in, he's always flamboyant and fashionable.
* DeadpanSnarker: Tends to speak sarcastically.
* EccentricMillionaire: He's the ''High Warlock of Brooklyn'', darlings.
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: He is quite fond of his body glitter and his magic itself does sparkle.
* ExtremeOmnisexual: He's been with men, women, warlocks, vampires, humans, fey, and the occasional djinn, which does show that he does go for anything. Except mermaids. They smell like seaweed.
* HalfHumanHybrid: As with all warlocks, Magnus is the child of a human/demon coupling.
* InterspeciesRomance: He's dated vampires, werewolves, faeries, mundanes and djinns. Now he's dating a [[spoiler: Shadowhunter, Alec Lightwood]].

* LetsGetDangerous: When shit hits the fan, you find how he ended up as the High Warlock of Brooklyn.
* MagnusMeansMage: A fitting name for the High Warlock.
* MarkOfTheSupernatural: He has cat eyes.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: [[spoiler:He is around 400 years old and dating Alec Lightwood who is eighteen. The fact he is an immortal warlock while Alec is human becomes a plot point in ''City of Fallen Angels'']].
* MeaningfulRename: Magnus renamed himself after he was taken in by the Silent Brothers. He still remembers his Indonesian name, but it's yet to be revealed.
* TheMcCoy: Of the Magnus-Catarina-Ragnor trio. He is very proud of flouting the rules and frequently banters with Ragnor for this.

* {{Patricide}}: He killed his mundane stepfather when [[OffingTheOffspring he tried to kill him]].
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: While his exact age is never given we know that he looks around nineteen and has to be older than two hundred and younger than seven hundred. Historically speaking (and given that Camille wasn't lying about his ancestry) he can't be much older than three hundred years old. In The Mortal Instruments books he is implied to be lying about his age (telling Alec that he's eight hundred years old) while The Bane Chronicles flat out state that he lies about it whenever it suits him. He eventually admits to being around four hundred.
* SquishyWizard: Has immense magical powers, but is still susceptible to physical injury. Considering how many enemies have SuperStrength, SuperSpeed and SuperReflexes this can be a weakness.
* SuperpowerLottery: Basically anytime somebody needs something that is not explicitly covered by another character's power set, all eyes turn to Magnus. As a very old, powerful and knowledgeable warlock, if he doesn't know the specific spell needed, he usually knows where to get it.
* TokenMinority: He's part Asian.
* TwoferTokenMinority: He is biracial (part Asian) and a self-proclaimed "freewheeling bisexual." And a warlock to boot.
