According to Servantis, Queen Weira's flaw was that she wanted everyone to be happy, and thus her ability to see the best in a person seemed more akin to a defense mechanism in order to not have to face their flaws and how much harm they could bring.

In Traveller the Fatal Flaw of the Vilani was in trying to call a halt to progress for the sake of stability. Which worked so long as they did not find an outside competitor I.
Earth The Fatal Flaw of the Terrans was more complex. It was in trying to govern the thousands of conquered Vilani worlds without the experience or inclination. The Vilani system was too repressive for the Terrans to use it and the Terran system was only suited for governing a few dozen worlds. This trope is present and of course taken Up to Eleven in Exalted : The Solars, Lunars, Dragon-Blooded and Sidereals all get various versions of the Great Curse, a psychological affliction thrown at them by the Primordials for besting them in war.
The Abyssals, on the other hand, get Resonance. If, for some reason, they decide they don't want to go along with their masters' goals of feeding all Creation into the mouth of Oblivion and resume something approaching a mortal life, their Resonance will build until it erupts and risks destroying any emotional connections they've managed to make with the world of the living.
The Infernals get a similar variant, known as Torment. If they defy the will of their Yozi patrons for too long, then said patron will assume control and cause shit to go haywire. This can range from spreading a Hate Plague Malfeas to causing the immediate vicinity to become a lifeless and spiritual wasteland Cecylene. If they conflict, tough luck! Since Alchemicals didn't even exist when the Great Curse was handed down, they've been spared it.
Nor do they have their own flaw bound as a Limit mechanic; instead, their Clarity rating measures how close their mindsets are to human as opposed to Autochthon's. Instead, each Alchemical gets their own personal problems - most notably Excessively Righteous Blossom, whose problem is that his head is up his arse ; he's incredibly bad at recognising when he doesn't possess a particular talent for something, meaning that whenever his duties take him outside "stabbing monsters" and into, for example, leading troops, it all ends in tears that are of course because of someone who is not Excessively Righteous Blossom why would you even think that.
Every Darklord in the Ravenloft setting, no exceptions, has one, and it's always related to the crime that cursed them with their own Domain. For example, Strahd Von Zarovich's flaw is his love for Tatyana, his brother's betrothed. This desire led him to become a vampire, murder his brother, and - most likely - cause her death, which condemned him to his Self-Inflicted Hell forever. He can never have her, but is constantly tormented by visions of her and women who look just like her, both of which often cause him to take avoidable risks and make mistakes.
If one hopes to have even a slim chance of defeating a Darklord, they must know what the flaw is and how to exploit it. White Wolf are generally pretty fond of this trope. Changeling: The Dreaming and Vampire: The Masquerade are particularly good examples as every sub-flavour of supernatural "Kith" in Changeling , "Clan" in Vampire has its own supernatural disadvantage. The New World of Darkness also has the option during character creation of giving a character a flaw which could potentially hinder them and - if done right - give extra experience points.
Some of the flaws include addictions, Coward, Forgetful, and Behavior Blind. You are also required to select a Vice, which gives you a Willpower reward for doing something stupid in pursuit of it. Warhammer 40, The Emperor's arrogance and detachment from humanity.

- Tau Zero (S.F. MASTERWORKS)?
He never felt the need to explain himself, and assumed that no one would betray or disobey him regardless of what he did. He also couldn't comprehend people's seeming need to believe in a higher power, and thus never believed that his own anti-religious actions would eventually lead to his people worshiping him, as the priest in The Last Church rightly observed. The Space Marines' blind obedience to their Primarchs. The Eldar's single-mindedness. The Necrontyr's jealousy of the Eldar's long life which led them to pledge their services to the C'Tan.
The C'Tan's gluttony which led them to feast on each other. The Chaos Gods' selfishness which is why cooperation between them is impossible, and ultimately why they will never win. The Orks' love of fighting for its own sake. The Tau's belief in The Greater Good.

Most of the primarchs had one: The Lion was a Horrible Judge of Character who couldn't read or relate to other people.
Jaghatai was a loner who hardly ever associated with any of his brothers, so when the Heresy kicked off, he could trust nobody and nobody could trust him. Leman Russ had Undying Loyalty which meant he never questioned orders even when they were questionable, like being ordered to burn an entire world. Also, his lack of tact made him The Brother Nobody Liked. Rogal Dorn's Determinator tendencies often translated as Attack! He didn't know when to stop.
The Iron Cage incident exploited this and his legion was decimated as a result. Roboute Guilliman had a need for control and orthodoxy that often made his thinking predictable and inflexible. This was how Fulgrim ambushed and wounded him. Fulgrim had an obsession with emulating his father and perfecting himself that drove him to madness.
Perturabo always felt like his father and his brothers never valued him or his accomplishments, so when the Heresy happened he fell in line with the one brother who didn't treat him as a Butt-Monkey. Konrad's unflinching desire for justice made him a brutal psychopath. Where to begin? His uncontrollable rage, his obsession with avenging his comrades, his resentment against his father for letting them all die, his inability to relate with any of his brothers because of the pain of losing his old ones on his homeworld, his Never My Fault tendencies which made him very hard to like Poor guy.
Mortarian's confidence issues led to him seeing council from the wrong people. Magnus recklessly and arrogantly sought knowledge and power wherever he could, which led to him turning to Chaos. Lorgar always sought a higher meaning to dedicate himself to. When the Emperor rejected him, he turned to Chaos.
Alpharius' desire to constantly look like the most brilliant person in the room ironically made him very easy to manipulate for both Chaos and the Cabal. Also, his Complexity Addiction which eventually resulted in his death at the hands of Dorn. And finally, Horus, who above all other things wanted glory. He hated sharing credit with his brothers and eventually he hated sharing credit with the Emperor. In Werewolf The Apocalypse , several Time of Judgment scenarios show how fatal flaws undermined the various shape-changers.
The Nuwisha alienated many Garou with their trickster ways. When the Wyrm targeted the Nuwisha for genocide, their reputation created difficulties for them when they sought refuge among the Garou. The Black Furies naively revered the Wyld for much of their history. This spelled doom for the tribe when a quarter of its members contracted the Wyld-tainted Metamorphic Plague. The Get of Fenris always placed too much emphasis on relentless combat and too little on subtlety. This gung-ho attitude drove the tribe to charge head-first into subterranean tunnels to fight the Black Spiral Dancers.
Even when it was obvious that the Black Spirals were luring them deeper into the tunnels with defensive feint traps , the Get pursued their prey anyway, until the tribe fell to the Wyrm. The Uktena's close study of the Wyrm always worried the other tribes, and their strategy of binding banes under caerns was dangerous.
In one Time of Judgment scenario, these bound banes corrupted the tribe's Bane Tenders, who in turn corrupted the rest of the Uktena. The Red Talon's uninhibited hatred of humans led them to eat human flesh. The Red Talons contracted a prion disease from eating human flesh, which they in turn passed on to other wolves, annihilating almost all of their wolf kinfolk.

He's also very wrathful. Lady Macbeth is overly ambitious. Hamlet waited too long, and is very likely crazy. He does have a particular flaw, but what it is depends on interpretation and how he is presented. And yet in every production he is completely aware about this: "So, oft it chances in particular men, That for some vicious mole of nature in them Carrying, I say, the stamp of one defect, Being nature's livery, or fortune's star, Their virtues else - be they as pure as grace, As infinite as man may undergo - Shall in the general censure take corruption From that particular fault.
Starscream , being the Trope Namer , lusts for power and isn't above taking action that directly harms his own faction to gain said power. The Marvel Comics version infamously had a higher kill count of named characters than Unicron! Rodimus Prime is often viewed both in-universe and among fans as a Sucksessor to Optimus Prime. He himself often suffers from self-doubt and is prone to second guessing himself.
In some universes, he grows out of it and becomes a capable leader in his own right. In others, he's glad to let someone else take over as leader, especially if Optimus is somehow brought back to life. Optimus Prime has two famous fatal flaws: his willingness to sacrifice himself for a noble cause and his unwillingness to fight the war with utter ruthlessness. The first has become a sort of Running Gag for him, while the second is usually justified by him fearing that fighting the way Megatron does would be his own personal Start of Darkness.
Visual Novels. Corpse Party : Naomi is very much your typical Tsundere. Cute, but has a tendency to let her temper get the best of her, and is unable to admit her true feelings. Unfortunately, this is not Played for Laughs or seen as cute, as her temper, and inability to apologize, ends up getting Seiko killed. What this really means, though, and the extent to which his distortion reaches, is only fully revealed in the latter routes.
Archer's flaw was his idealism which led him to being estranged from other people and finally executed for crimes he did not commit. He might have accepted this but his idealism also led to him becoming a Counter-Guardian, an existence which consisted solely of killing people rather than saving them. Sakura's fatal flaw is her self image, which is horrible enough to become the primary cause for everything going FUBAR in Heaven's Feel. Kiritsugu wanted to save the world. It cost him his wife , his daughter , and his life.
He admitted that he had never done a single act of good, nor saved a single person, until he pulled Shirou from the fire which was caused by his own actions. Kotomine is unable to find any joy or pleasure in anything good, and can only find satisfaction or happiness in the suffering of others.

His only sadness upon her death was regret that he hadn't killed her himself. With the help of Gilgamesh , he surrendered to his own need for evil. Saber's selflessness was her downfall in life. As King Arthur , she chose to become her ideal of the perfect regent, ruling without surrendering to her emotions and taking every action possible for the good and safety of her kingdom. However her perfectly just rule and emotional distance from the people led to many feeling she was in some way inhuman.
This in turn led to civil war started by Mordred, the " son " created by Morgan le Fay whose love she rejected and subsequently allowed to turn to hate , and her death. If Gilgamesh ever ever fought at full power , no one and no Hero in the Holy Grail War would be capable of defeating him.

Explored with each character on Illusionary Trauma , with each route showing the flaw of the character and how it affects them. Quite few show up in the Danganronpa series, and often result in characters dying or killing one another. Mondo Owada's is his temper and sense of inadequacy. In his backstory, he, struggling with feelings of inferiority to his brother Diaiya, challenges Daiya to a race, resulting in Daiya dying to save Mondo.
In Chapter 2, he, jealous of Chihiro's sense of strength, and emotionally disturbed at the prospect of the aforementioned incident coming to light, accidentally kills Chihiro in a fit of rage. Peko Pekoyama is unable to see herself as anything other than Fuyuhiko's tool , viewing herself and everyone else as expendable, which leads her to kill Mahiru under the assumption that Fuyuhiko would be considered the true mastermind, and thus graduate after everyone else convicted her. Fuyuhiko and Mahiru both have fairly hot tempers and argumentative personalities, which frequently causes them to butt heads.
Because of this, their meeting to discuss what happened in "Twilight Syndrome Murder Mystery" which reveals that Fuyuhiko killed Mahiru's friend in revenge for his little sister's death , quickly gets out of hand, resulting in Peko killing Mahiru out of a belief that Fuyuhiko wanted Mahiru dead. Kaede Akamatsu has a tendency to push her own personal sense of justice what she believes is "right" , regardless of the consequences, which leads her to setting a trap to catch the Mastermind, even though she doesn't even know for definite that there is one.
There is a mastermind, but Kaede's attempt to set a trap and kill the mastermind results in her being framed for the mastermind killing Rantaro, and thus being executed. Gonta Gokuhara is very gullible, which makes him easily manipulated by Kokichi and really comes back to bite him when Kokichi manipulates him to killing Miu. Miu Iruma's is cowardice, as she is unable to put aside her fear that one of the other students may kill her and use her talent to work together, thus leading to her plotting to kill Kokichi and graduate, an attempt that is thwarted when Gonta kills her on Kokichi's suggestion.
Tenko Chabashira's protectiveness over Himiko almost directly results in her death, literally volunteering to take Himiko's face in a death trap, albeit unknowingly. Kaito Momota's arbitrary trust in people is often completely misguided, and while he does have a point about The Power of Friendship , this attitude nearly gets everyone killed in the fourth chapter because the Awful Truth is too much for him to bear. Kokichi's is his constant lying to everyone.
Though his lying tendencies do help out the group and allow him to outwit the culprits several times, it also gets in the way when he's genuinely trying to accomplish a goal and the other students don't believe him. It really comes back to bite him in the aftermath of Chapter Four Miu and Gonta are dead, which is almost entirely his fault, and the group turn their backs on him when he falsely claims to be the Mastermind. When the group are shown a Flashback Light concerning Ultimate Despair, they assume Kokichi is a member. When Kokichi kidnaps Kaito, Maki goes after Kokichi and confronts him.
When Kokichi tells her truthfully that he has no idea what she's talking about, Maki naturally doesn't believe him and shoots him with a poisoned arrow, which will slowly kill him. Makoto Itou, the protagonist of School Days , is a poor communicator and extremely indecisive, traits that do not serve him well when multiple girls start fighting for his affections. In the bad endings, these flaws can be literally fatal for either him or one of the girls he's involved with. How it's played depends on the particular adaptation.
In the original visual novel this can be played straight or subverted since the player controls Makoto's choices. In the anime he's these with a heaping of Jerkass thrown in for good measure. In the manga it's played more sympathetically, with Makoto being more genuinely unable to decide on what to do, but because he takes too long to commit to a decision, the situation still ends tragically.
Web Animation. Happy Tree Friends : Almost all the characters have fatal flaws. Lumpy is inept at everything he does, Nutty is constantly hyperactive and addicted to sugar. Flaky has fears and phobias about just about anything and everything. These flaws do indeed prove to be fatal by the end of the episode.
Flippy's untreated post-traumatic stress disorder, always proves to be fatal for everyone else around him by the end of the episode. RWBY : Yang's short temper and berserker tendencies repeatedly put her in danger. She was easily frustrated when she couldn't land a hit on Neo and could not attack precisely because of it, leading to her getting knocked unconscious and almost killed. Adam Taurus deliberately exploited it by injuring Blake, sending Yang into a rage.
Yang attacks fist-first, which allows Adam to easily cut off her arm. While she's recovering from her injuries, her father lectures her about this weakness and guides her in what she needs to do to start overcoming it. Cinder has a nasty combination of egomania, sadism, and an insatiable hunger for power. She wants to powerful and feared at the expense of everyone else. If someone she perceives as beneath her gets the better of her, she will pay them back in the worst way possible, even if doing so is either pointless or detrimental to the longterm plan. If she thinks there's a way to fulfill her mission and get what she wants she'll go for it, no matter how risky it is.
Her cruel, arrogant lust for power finally gets the better of her near the end of Volume 5, when she murders Vernal to obtain the Spring Maiden's power only to find out that Raven had pulled a Bait-and-Switch. Raven was the real Maiden and she defeats Cinder, costing Salem's group both the Maiden's power and the Relic of Knowledge they came for.
He possesses the charisma to lead Vale's faction of the White Fang in any endeavour he supports; even when many Faunus lose their lives during the Volume 2 finale, he is confident that his followers will continue to do his bidding. Claiming he's inspired by Sienna's strength, he joins forces with Salem to destroy Beacon Academy. Sienna is furious because Adam cannot see that his actions have justified humanity's hatred and fear of the Faunus and that the White Fang is now more of a target than it ever was.
Blake explains to Sun that Adam symbolises the concept of 'spite' to her; the world hurt him, so he intends to hurt the world right back; he neither cares nor comprehends the wider consequences of his actions. He believes in Faunus superiority and plans for a day when humanity will be forced to serve the Faunus, but he's willing to ruin his own plans for short-term gain, such as the destruction of Beacon Academy or putting a hit out on Blake's family just because they oppose him.
Murdering Sienna to obtain control of the White Fang and trying to assassinate the Belladonnas motivates a previously neutral Menagerie to form an army for the sole purpose of stopping him from doing to Haven Academy what he did to Beacon; his ability to control the White Fang is therefore destroyed by his own weakness almost as soon as he set his plans in motion. Ozpin's secrecy is his greatest flaw. He is obsessed with keeping what he knows about the situation hidden under wraps, terrified that a full disclosure will cause allies to turn against him.
Fatal Flaws and Correctable Flaws - wyfaxitixe.tk, Laboratory Continuing Education
Unfortunately, this refusal to be forthcoming alienates his allies anyway. While taking the Relic of Knowledge on public transport, Ozpin keeps the fact that the Relic can draw Grimm just as well as negative emotions a secret until after a Grimm attack, and only after someone has died. Ozpin's first reincarnation actually joined Salem to pull a God Guise and rule the world together with her. When he developed cold feet, he chose to take their daughters and sneak off into the night rather than talk it out.
When she caught them, the resulting battle killed the girls, and created a cycle of pain and hatred for both of them. Like in Warhammer 40, the Emperor staunchly refuses to admit that he was wrong but even more than that constantly belittles everyone including his most loyal Custodian "Little Kitten" and thinks he's smarter and greater than everyone else which he is. By doing this he causes Horus to start the Horus Heresy and put him on the Golden Throne and unable to communicate for ten millennium, Magnus the Red falling to Chaos after he failed to heed his warnings, lose Kitten's faith in him along with the position of Captain-General of the Adeptus Custodes , and cause Magnus to try to run the Imperium himself.
Only to be beaten with two cards that exploit the fatal weakness of the Emp's strategy. He doesn't take losing very well. As the Emperor says " Like fucking father, like fucking son ": Magnus the Red has the same problem of arrogance as the Emperor. Possessing great wisdom and knowledge Magnus believes himself to be smarter and better than everyone around him which he is , including his father which he's not , but his arrogance is also very fragile as he complains like a whiny teenager when his father bullies him which is a lot. In Red vs.
Blue , Carolina's Pride and her need to be better than Agent Texas has caused several issues for herself, her teammates and others. By taking the two A.
During a training simulation with Tex to capture the flag, Carolina accidentally killed Biff, Temple's friend and callously dismissed the event, having been more focused on defeating Tex.

Dreamscape : The Overlord of Evil's god complex makes him believe he is invincible and holds all the cards, which means he is not prepared when the tables get turned on him. Web Comics. The Order of the Stick : Vaarsuvius has the fatal flaw of Pride in their magic power and intellect, which both leaves them wide open for the trauma factor of being completely powerless to stop horrible things from happening to their friends and loved ones and drives them to accept a Deal with the Devil rather than experience that feeling of helplessness again.
Later they start working on that, though, and are limiting themselves to low-level enhancements unless they need them, as opposed to just going all out. Redcloak, whose inability Conviction to back down from the path and plan he's chosen, despite all the senseless sacrifices, really bites him in Start of Darkness. Haley's flaw is greed, although unlike most examples, she's vaguely justified in this: her father is being ransomed for a small fortune and she became an adventurer to get enough money to save him from further imprisonment.
At one point, the gold and treasure she owns is destroyed in a fire, and Haley's shock is so great that it renders her literally unable to speak for the next hundred or so strips. One of the reasons she likes Elan so much is because his presence encourages her away from this. Miko Miyazaki, a massive Knight Templar who refuses to believe that anything she does is wrong. Instead, she imagines a massive plot brewing behind the scenes just to enable this belief.
It's only when she's moments away from death that she starts to question any of her actions, but by then, it's way too late.
