*LadyAndKnight: Mimori and Straight Cougar have this sort of relationship, Bright Lady and White Knight style. Mimori is referred to as a "princess" because her father is a major figure in HOLY's mainland administration and she does her best to ensure humane treatment and better living conditions for her "subjects" in the Lost Ground. Cougar looks out for her, protects her and even rescues her from a dungeon, and he does so while [[MyHorseIsAMotorbike riding a horse that happens to be a hot pink street rod]]. The relationship is not romantic because Mimori isn't interested.

* ImprobableWeaponUser: Urizane uses watermelons as his weapon, but he can do almost anything with them. He can make them grow huge until they crush you to death, turn an entire building into a watermelon for a second (thus destroying it when it turns back), and can even teleport, sort of, by stepping inside a giant watermelon, having it shrink to nothing, then having it grow anew in a different location, with him still inside it.

* LightheartedRematch: Subverted. After teaming up and defeating the ConflictKiller, the two leads decide to have a friendly bout to see who is the best after all - but this takes up ''the entire [[GrandFinale last episode]]'' and is the longest and definitely most brutal fight in the entire series. It appears to end in a double knockout - but one last shot as the credits start imply that at least one is still moving. [[spoiler:A hand rises behind a curtain of dust, and does a gesture typical for Kazuma.]]

* {{Troll}}: Straight Cougar takes Mimori out to see Ryuho fighting but stops in the middle of nowhere. When she demands to know what's going on, Cougar implies he's actually going to rape her, only to reveal he's just screwing with her and it's simply not safe to get too close to a fight between Alter Users.

* AntiHero: Kazuma can be kind of a jerk and a BloodKnight, but is fiercely loyal to his friends and will always stand up for people being oppressed even if he doesn't know them that well. He becomes a bit edgier after [[spoiler:Kimishima dies,]] but still fights to protect people despite that.

* BigDamnHeroes: Emergy Maxfell's alter invokes this trope. Due to severe trauma he experienced as a child, Emergy's Alter only activates when he feels he's in extreme peril ("a pinch situation", as he likes to call it), at which point a HumongousMecha bursts from the ground to "save him from the pinch".

* BullyingADragon: When Kazuma ends up at an Alter fight club, he quickly becomes the strongest competitor. Regardless, he's technically a prisoner; the "technically" being the fact that the one and only thing keeping him there is what amounts to a HeroicBSOD. When Kazuma finally decides he wants to leave and explosively releases himself, two regular humans actually it's a good idea to make him get back in his cell. Kazuma quickly schools them. Then there was the club leader, who tried to shoot him, only to think better of it after Kazuma warned against such an action.

* CombatBreakdown: The final battle between Ryuuhou and Kazuma has the cycle through all their Alter forms and back down to normal. By the end, they can both only manage to summon a fraction of their power for one last strike (Kazuma armors his fist and Ryuho generates a small spike) and both collapse after the final blow.

* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Kazuma and Ryuho vs a joint aerial and naval invasion force of Refined Alter users results in a victory for the former. It's implied that this is because Kazuma and Ryuho are using Level 3 Alters juiced up from the other side and their enemies are a bunch of artificial alters who are level 1 at best.

* {{Determinator}}: If Kazuma can breathe, he can fight, and he pretty much never gives up. It takes [[spoiler:losing his best friend]] to make him slow down, and even then after a while he gets back up and keeps going. Ryuuhou is equally determined in both his pursuit of Kazuma and the Alter User that killed his mother.

* DumpThemAll: [[spoiler: In the anime, the Scheris/Mimori/Ryuhou love triangle ends with Scheris dead and Ryuhou rejecting Mimori despite his implied attraction to her because he feels it wouldn't be right. Although he displayed no attraction to Scheris either, she died for him because she loved him. So now that Mimori confessed her love for him, he fears her meeting the same fate so he turns her down and/or would be disrespectful to Scheris.

** Judging from other characters' assessments of him, this applies only to his being BookDumb; while he has virtually no formal education and isn't very sociable, he's shown to be very street smart and tactically deadly in a fight. As one of the others notes, "he isn't throwing his punches at random."

* BashBrothers: It took about 20 episodes but Ryuuhou and Kazuma eventually work together (on principle). It doesn't stop them from trying to bash each other's face in afterward but that's more of a friendly brawl than a fight to the death.

** This was foreshadowed when Kazuma was trapped in Mad Sprict. Uneki attempted to conclude his "script" with Kazuma and Ryuho facing off in a LightHeartedRematch, ending with them becoming friends and equals. Kazuma refused this, knowing that neither he nor Ryuho would accept anything less than victory. This refusal ultimately freed Kazuma from Sprict.

One subset of Alter Users are "alloy-types", whose Alters form part of themselves, and one or two display the ability to affect other's Alters without summoning one themselves, but mostly the Alters are used like {{Mons}}... or, since a given person doesn't tend to acquire more than one. The nature of the superpowers varies from typical StockSuperpowers to really weird ideas: "Turn anything into water", "Turn any car into a pink [[Anime/SpeedRacer Mach 5]]", "Summon [[{{BFG}} an enormous gun]]" or even "[[ImaginationBasedSuperpower Do anything, as long as it involves watermelons]]".
