* EvilOverlord: Trautse is directly inspired by [[LordOfTheRings Sauron]], and even calls himself by the title "Dark Lord". He begins to fit the trope when he sets himself up as the ruler of the orcs. He's basically responsible for imprinting the idea of an EvilOverlord firmly in the collective consciousness of future generations in this world.

* RageAgainstTheHeavens: Even though Trautse is closer to a Satan figure, from the orcs' point of view challenging him amounts to this, which is made especially clear when he starts imitating [[{{God}} Yahweh]] in [[Literature/TheBible the Book of Job]] upon being challenged.

* OurOrcsAreDifferent

to:

* OurOrcsAreDifferentOurOrcsAreDifferent: They'd like to think they're [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy "Blizzard" orcs]]. Humans see them as [[AlwaysChaoticEvil "Tolkienite" orcs]]. Neither is true.


* DivideByZero: Invoked by Trautse whenever he uses the Seed of Chaos as a weapon.

* RealityBreakingParadox: Invoked by Trautse whenever he uses the Seed of Chaos as a weapon.


** Gurkh is [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes type I,]] basically just ordinary and out of place in such events.
** Orkhonu and Thomasis are type III. The problem is that they act like their enemies are just {{mooks}} or AlwaysChaoticEvil, but the story makes such a view impossible to take by showing both sides's perspectives.

An unfinished novel by VVK (though "finished" in the sense of NaNoWriMo completion), deconstructing some Tolkienian themes. A "prequel" and historical background for another unwritten novel (''Heart of Evil''). Essentially the story of how orcs came to be regarded as AlwaysChaoticEvil in the world in question. Also set in the same world, if not location or time, as ''DarthWiki/AHerosReward''.

** After Trautse is decapitated, he starts [[AC:talking like the Death of Literature/{{Discworld}}]], complete with no quotation marks. Soon after, when what he says are barely even words any more, they combine this with what could be called a variation of [[{{ADOM}} cHaOsPeAk]].

* SuperWeight
** Type 0: Gurkh (if not -1), Garka, Gurkhga
** Type 1: Other members of Orkhonu's band who don't have powerful enchanted weapons
** Type 2: Orkhonu, Thomasis, Adrios -- all ''very'' capable fighters who also use extremely powerful enchanted weapons; alternatively all type 1 if you don't count the weapons
** Type 3: Lunalia -- the most powerful mage alive
** Type 4: Trautse, the Seed of Chaos
** Type 5: (Hmm...)


* PunctuatedForEmphasis:
--> '''Trautse: ''"Turn back from your madness and return to the fight below. I can sense your hostility. You could never reach me, and should I let you in here, I could crush you with a thought. I am your warlord and your Dark Lord."'''''
--> '''Orkhonu''': "Not. Any. More."

Trautse when he claims to still be his lord: "Not. Any. More."

* CrossingTheStreams: In this case, it's the bad guy doing it -- using the UnholyNuke at a short range. Mainly because he's angry, not because he's losing.

Added DiffLines:

* MasterSwordsman: Thomasis, Adrios and Orkhonu.


** Type 5: Primal Chaos and the supposed [[OrderVsChaos opposing]] force of order that isn't really defined here. (Yes, this sets up a contradiction -- type 5 should be unchallengeable by anyone. There may or not may not be a way [[TakeAThirdOption around this]] in the background metaphysics.)
