* BreakoutCharacter: Fushimi Saruhiko and to a lesser extent Yata Misaki.

They are also featured prominently in merchandise even more than the main character and his clan. And fans have noticed {{Expy}} versions of Saruhiko in multiple popular {{bishounen}}-collecting games.

** The King's sanctum is capable of doing this as shown in Episode 1 where Reisi's blue force field protects against the violent surge of fire that Mikoto sends out at SCEPTER 4 when he first activates his powers which burns everything else in its path. The novel ''K:Side Blue'' reveals these sanctums are powerful enough to protect the people within them from six simultaneous bomb blasts, a hail of bullets, and other kinds of dangerous psychic attacks.
