** Taken even farther [[spoiler:with the Tower of Hanoi. Their victims are turned into data which is then absorbed into the Tower with the intent of powering it. They are turning people into {{Human Sacrifice}}s for the sake of destroying VRAINS. According to Kogami, once the tower is completed, all the data it is composed of will be destroyed along with Link VRAINS, killing all those sacrificed to it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: The Lieutenants of Hanoi express remorse for targeting SOL Technologies in the first place because they were mistakenly believed to be responsible for installing a computer virus within Kogami which rendered him comatose. [[spoiler:Lightning confesses that he himself was responsible for the deed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheWorfEffect: [[spoiler:Lightning refuses to accept an outright defeat from Revolver, instead taking both himself and his opponent out. The Duel was thought to have ended in a DRAW... but Lightning barely hangs on with 1 LP due to what little he had of Jin's consciousness data remaining, which he converted to extra LP to keep himself in the game. Lightning's status as leader of the rogue Ignis isn't just for show, not losing a single Duel up to that point.]]


* RightForTheWrongReasons: His analyzing of the Ignis as a whole proved that as a group they would be a threat to humanity. [[spoiler:He failed to study them as ''individuals'' which showed that while coexistence was possible for all Ignis save for Lightning, who singlehandedly leads the Ignis into becoming the threats with his corruptive influence on all other Ignis. His son eventually figures it out in his stead after his death.]]



* SelfFulfillingProphecy: Believes that humanity will see the Ignis as a threat and the AI will turn on them in response. If Flame is to be believed, then the Knights of Hanoiís actions caused the Ignis to think just that.

If Flame is to be believed, then the Knights of Hanoiís actions caused the Ignis to think just that. [[spoiler:It's subverted. As Lightning is revealed to be fundamentally flawed and would have attacked humanity eventually.]]



* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Tied into SelfFulfillingProphecy, Dr. Kogami wanted to eradicate the Ignis out of fear that they would rise up and spell the doom of humanity if he didn't. While four of the six Ignis ultimately either couldn't care less about humans or were pro Human-Ignis coexistence, two of them were looking for an excuse to get rid of them, and he ultimately gave them one. [[spoiler:The Light and Wind Ignis, Lightning and Windy respectively, saw themselves as above humanity as per Kogami's intent for them to be the next stage in human evolution, and following the Knights of Hanoi's attempts at deleting them, felt justified in their beliefs. They in turn then proceeded to launch a FalseFlagOperation in an attempt to get their brothers to ally with them, then ultimately declared war on humanity, attacking and absorbing several humans and Ignis alike.]]

* BreakThemByTalking: He tears apart [[spoiler:Lightning]] verbally during their Duel, exposing his opponent for the atrocities he committed leading up to [[spoiler:the Cyberse World's destruction and Bohman's creation. Lightning ''explodes'' and attempts, without success, to silence Revolver from saying any more.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: Like his father, he adamantly believes that all of the Ignis must be terminated, including the ones who demonstrate no active hostility towards humanity.


** In a Duel that lasted only three turns, Revolver effortlessly depletes all of Blood Shepherd's LP in a single turn using only "Borreload Savage Dragon" in battle, after manipulating him into believing that he has the upper hand because Revolver only Set a single card on the first turn, leaving himself wide open to his opponent's attacks.


* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He actually cares deeply for his lieutenants, [[spoiler:even admits his regrets when they fell into a coma due to his obsession with Playmaker]], and displays a level of concern for the victims of Lost Incident behind the scenes. [[GoodIsNotNice All the while seeming like an indifferent jerk in front of them]].

** While it doesn't get as bad compared to his Duel with Playmaker, Spectre nevertheless loses his composure and curses [[spoiler:Lightning]] for banishing "Sunavalon Dryanome" without a second thoughta.
