  • Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: His eyes are notably villainous in artwork.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: He justifies his actions both before and after excommunication as being necessary for his church's future. As he sees it, Christianity has been losing significant ground to the other faiths and he is needed to stem the losses.

  • White Hair, Black Heart: Per the above tropes.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: His fate once the Capitalist Corporation unit he's working with decides they don't need him any longer.

  • Affably Evil: Comes across as a genuinely kind-hearted man even as he's attempting to kill people.
  • Benevolent Boss: Transcripts from his subordinates indicate they deeply respect Tyrfing and value his survival more than he does.
  • The Chessmaster: Orchestrated the events of volume 14 and 15 to put the four world powers on a collision course.
  • Dark Messiah: Tyrfing knows that the current era of "clean wars" is inherently wrong and needs to be ended, and is willing to go to any lengths to bring about the necessary war.
  • Evil Old Folks: In his 70s and more than willing to put the entirety of humanity in danger of extinction to achieve his goals.
  • Meaningful Name: He is named for a sword cursed to kill its owner, as he intends to do to the Faith Organization.
  • Never Found the Body: While close to a bomb blast, no body or remains were found as he was in the water. It's noted to be unlikely he survived, but his fate is unclear.
  • Advertisement:
  • No Place for Me There: Downplayed. Tyrfing is willing to put his life on the line to end the era of Objects but has no real desire to live in the age that will follow.
  • People Puppets: He wears a device that uses chains to manipulate his limbs according to various "Modules" based on notable combatants.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Despite being the highest ranking member of the Faith Organization, Tyrfing goes to the battlefield personally in order to ensure events proceed according to plan.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He and his closest followers all know that the current era of Objects and "clean wars" is a mistake and must be ended. However their method for doing so is to trigger a global war between all four powers, allowing whoever survives to rebuild.
