- Deconstructed Character Archetype: Commander Cloak is one to Planetary Annihilation Self Inserts - unlike most Commanders, he pretty quickly develops an ends-justify-the-means mentality and ultimately becomes a Villain Protagonist.
- Horrifying the Horror: For all their power, the Endbringers are nothing compared to Commander Cloak. The Simurgh, in particular, just flies away screaming after Cloak captures/kills Behemoth.
- You Are Not Alone: During the Mass Effect arc, Cloak creates a set of 'gift boxes' for other commanders like him, in order to assist them in their coming struggles. Per Word of God, any other Commander Self-Insert protagonist can use them if they want to.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: One of these boxes is directly responsible for causing a massive progenitor anti-commander failsafe to activate and begin trying to purge the multiverse of Commanders in Conquest In The Name Of Advancement!. When Mr. Cloak found out about this, he laughed his ass off, before admitting this was rather cool.
