* CrazyAwesome: Mukrezar starves out an underworld city by buying all the food to make the world's biggest cake, and cuts off their normal resupply routes in a way that won't trigger the mutual defense treaties.

* CompleteMonster: Despite how usually horrible Dark Gods and Keepers in general are, none are described as evil as Keeper Malleus was. Having destroyed his home country and turned it into a desert, forcing the inhabitants to eat each other, enchanting the king to kill his family, taking women as sex slaves and sacrificing the children he got from them, all while laughing and enjoying the atrocities he commited. [[spoiler:No wonder why Mercury killed him in cold blood without a doubt after learning all of this.]]

** Although JustifiedTrope and FridgeLogic kicks in after a while: Dungeon Keepers are MagnificentBastard [[TheChessmaster Chess Masters]] [[ResurrectiveImmortality which just can't stay dead]], with the most successful amongst their numbers being able to take insanely long lived plans and being a force of terror for generations. Add to that mix every single Evil Trope you can think of (with "depraved" "sadistic" and "sociopathic" being '''mild'''), and you can't help thinking it could be worse. ([[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} Warhammer 40K]]-style worse?)

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Since Keepers can possess their minions bodies, [[spoiler:too many]] viewers have had a hard time keeping track of what Keepers are what gender [[spoiler:Keepers Alphel and Arachne both being females are two good examples]]. It doesn't help matters that Keepers can [[OneWingedAngel alter their forms]]. It also doesn't help matters that Mercury refers to a person's gender by what body they're inhabiting or possessing, rather than what gender they themselves identify themselves as being or were actually born as, such as when Mercury referred to herself as a male when possessing the Reapers body in the episode [[http://addventure.bast-enterprises.de/226425.html Mad Science for Beginners]].

* GoodIsDumb: All over the place. The tendency in the story is for all good characters to assume the worst about any and all acts by team evil at the drop of a hat, followed shortly by being a jerkass towards those perceived as evil. And Keepers are at the top of this list. Even those ''directly ordered by and given hints by'' the [[GodOfGood Light Gods]] themselves still treats Ami with all the same distrust they throw at other keepers, twisting those (very real) God's words if necessary to justify their viewpoint.

* MagnificentBastard: Mukrezar is resurrected ([[Film/IronMan In a cave! With a box of scraps!]]) with no dungeon hearts and barely enough gold to make a few magic rings. In three episodes, he manages to pull off a massive heist that nets him enough gold to create multiple dungeon hearts while emptying the vaults of his biggest rivals and would-be captors.

* NightmareFuel: The Fairy Sisters react this way to seeing [[spoiler:their sister Cerasse's internal organs]] in the episode "Convoluted Rescue Plan, Go!" Thankfully for all those involved, the [[spoiler:fairy was just made partially invisible instead of being horribly killed and raised as an undead horror]] as the fairies initially thought. A second example of characters reacting to a NightmareFuel situation occurs in-story in the episode "Assault on Wemos", where Keeper Mercury observes [[spoiler:Zarekos torturing Keeper Wemos]] in graphic detail. The details in that scene do border on being {{Squick}}.

** [[TheSociopath Nero]], Arachne's [[TheDragon chief subordinate]], is a {{torture technician}} who enjoys brutal torture and murder. He quickly establishes the tone for other keepers, and why noone on the surface will even consider the possibility that Mercury isn't pure evil: he animates a prisoner's skeleton inside their body, WHILE THEY'RE STILL ALIVE, and forces them to strip their own flesh from their bones.
