* 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.

** Kidnap Kanami, and [[IdiotHero Kazuma]] and [[KnightTemplar Ryuho]] will [[BigBrotherInstinct hunt you down]].
* BigBrotherInstinct: Kazuma far and away for Kanami, given their age difference and how much he cares about her and keeping her safe. Surprisingly, [[spoiler:Ryuuhou develops this for her after he lost then regained his memories. She even calls him "Ryu-kun" like "Kazu-Kun".]]

* DefeatMeansFriendship: Kazuma eventually becomes...not "friends" as much as "rivals with an understanding" with [[spoiler: Tachibana]] after defeating him, but it took ''two'' defeats. In the main series, [[spoiler: Kazuma never defeats Ryuuhou but still comes to a similar relationship. The movie, Alteration, implies that he is the victor of their last fight.]]

* GratuitousEnglish: Present in both the opening theme (Yasuaki Ide's "Reckless Fire") and the closing theme (Mikio Sakai's "Drastic My Soul", which gave us the infamous line [[IntentionalEngrishForfunny "I believe in drastic my soul!"]])

* HumansAreSpecial: A more contemporary example than most: Humans are the ones that get Alter powers. There are only a few other types of animals we see that have Alter powers, and all but one of them reside in an extremely dangerous area of the Lost Ground teeming with Alter energy.

** 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.

* MotherlyScientist: Dr. Mimori Kiryu feels compassion for how Kazuma is tortured and lets him escape. Later she gets interested in the Inners. [[spoiler: (eventually forming a community with them) and becoming a school teacher.]]

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]]".

** 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."

* CombatBreakdown: The final battle between Ryuho and Kazuma has the cycle through all their Altar 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.

* DeliberatelyBadExample(s): Lots of characters demonstrate Ryuuhou's sincerity by doing what he would do if he had ulterior motives. Several also demonstrate that Kazuma is a lot better than most of the alter-users out in the wild.
** "Big-Kun" shows the way a lot of the other alter users besides Kazuma use their powers to oppress others.
** Other unnamed villainous alter users in one of Mimori's historical flashbacks are shown proudly posing with their alters for the camera in front of the destruction they've just caused.
** The villainous behavior of certain normal human crime bosses out in the bad lands also stands in contrast to both Kazuma and Ryuhou's nobler intentions.
** George Tatsunami demonstrates a slave-driver's behavior in Ryuuhou's position.
** Emergy Maxfell demonstrates a development-arrested brat's behavior in his position.
** Sou Kigetsuki demonstrates a narcissistic sociopath's behavior in his position. Notably, he demonstrates this to an amnesiac ''Ryuuhou'', showing him the world from Kazuma's perspective - what he used to seem like to the Inners. Result: HeelFaceTurn. Kazuma still pisses him off by ''breathing'', but that's just TeethClenchedTeamwork.
** Kyoji Mujo demonstrates a power-hungry control freak's behavior in his position.
* {{Determinator}}:
** Definitely Kazuma has developed a brief philosophy regarding this trope: "If there's a wall in front of me, I break it down no matter what!" with the wall variously being "Ryuhou", "HOLY", "lack of medicine" and "Kujo Mojo".
** Ryuhou searched for the Crystal Alter for a decade and similarly breaks down "walls" in front of him.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The answer is [[spoiler:yes, Kazuma did, when Mujo returned from The Other Side looking like a CosmicHorror.]]

On HOLY's end George Tatsunami demonstrates a slave-driver's behavior in Tatsunami, Emergy Maxfell, Sou Kigetsuki, and Kyouji Mujou are all prime examples of how Ryuuhou's position.

** Definitely
{{Determinator}}: If Kazuma has developed 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 brief philosophy regarding this trope: "If there's a wall while he gets back up and keeps going. Ryuuhou is equally determined in front both his pursuit of me, I break it down no matter what!" with Kazuma and the wall variously being "Ryuhou", "HOLY", "lack of medicine" and "Kujo Mojo".

* PowersDoTheFighting: Ryuuho hangs back and allows his Altar, Zetsuei, to do most of the fighting for him. Ryuuho is one of the most powerful Altars in HOLY, and Zetsuei is more than capable of defending Ryuuho from attacks while dominating other Altars simultaneously. Kazuma taunts him about this early in the series, before Ryuuho socks him in the gut with his bare hand.
