Betrayal is when a person breaks the trust and faith that others have placed in them.
Video game bosses are usually the main antagonist, and arch nemesis of the main protagonist. In most cases the end of a game is when the main character defeats the final boss.
Cloaking is to become invisible, or become close to invisible depending on strength of the ability or item.
Darkness is used in games to restrict access, increase tension, or just to set a mood. Often the player has access to a light source that can mitigate its effect.
Evil Monks are mainly recurring henchmen of evil in the original Painkiller game. Evil Monks also appear in many other games, especially those with a horror theme. Evil monks are often heard ominously chanting, usually in a foreign language.
The last boss you face in a game, usually representing the final climax of the game.
Games with characters known for wearing hoods over their heads, whether they be cloaked cultists, assassins, or just guys that keep their hoodies in the upright-and-locked position.
A hostile artificial intelligence, or "rogue AI", is a synthetic being that has turned on its creators. Among the most famous rogue AIs from video games are SHODAN (System Shock) and GLaDOS (Portal).
Leviathans are the children of the living planet Phaaze. They spread the corruption of Phazon throughout the galaxy by crashing and embedding themselves on the surface of a planet.
A lich is a powerful sorcerer who became undead through a magical ritual they cast on themselves. Usually lichdom is achieved to extend their "lives" or give themselves more power. They can control vast hordes of undead.
Necromancers are spell casters who specializes in conjuring and controlling the undead.
Legendary, stealthy assassins from Japan's feudal era, who are well-trained in the art of the sword, and who may or may not have access to magical powers.
A person leading a double life. Many comic book characters have one and sometimes the plot of their stories is keeping their secret identities a secret.
The mysterious seekers are former novices from the Sect Camp who went insane following the defeat of the sleeper.
Twisted by Beliar's dark influence, they are able to cause mental traumas and manipulate frail minds into doing their bidding.
A shadowy organization founded by Major Zero after Operation Snake Eater. Their goal is having complete digital control over all mankind. Also known as the "La-Li-Lu-Le-Lo."
Characters whose ages have never been revealed in a game or officially by the creators. This may be due to an added sense of mystery, to avoid controversy, or just lazy character development.
The unreliable mentor is there to teach and guide you sometimes. Though other times, you just don't know what their intentions are, and whether you should trust them or not.
Supporting characters who are heard throughout the course of the game, but are never seen physically by the player.
A malevolent character whose goals are evil in nature. While villains are commonly featured as antagonists, not all antagonists are necessarily villains.
