* {{Narcissist}} / ItsAllAboutMe: Faust's FatalFlaw. Even without broaching the "created sapient life only to constantly destroy it to further his own ends" topic, Faust disdains everyone around him and their problems, even those who try to forge a connection with him, seeing ''everyone'' as beneath him - and his notes and comments make it clear that he reacts badly, sometimes explosively so, to anyone not recognizing what he considers to be his genius, even in small ways. This extends to the Homunculi, who - no matter how much they come to love him - never catch on that he utterly despises most of them for being "imperfect" in comparison to himself and his daughter. [[spoiler: In the true ending, his future self realizes that even his dedication to his daughter came more from his ego not wanting to accept that he had been defeated rather than genuine love.]]



* TheSociopath: Faust comes across this way the further into the game you get, both in his general attitude towards the homunculi, and the way he will kill them without hesitation or remorse. Also in the true endings [[spoiler:[[TheKillerInMe reveal]] it was a future version of himself whom set up the events of the game.]]
