* BlondGuysAreEvil: Subverted. Luo-Lang is actually more honorable than most of the rest of his group. That is to say, a full-on BloodKnight seeking a WorthyOpponent versus a homicidal petty aristocrat seeking immortality. In-universe, it's firmly upheld: his hair and eye color (along with his stature) is frequently noted as so alien that it evokes the image of a demon.

* NobleDemon: Luo-Lang. He isn't really interested in achieving immortality, aiding the Ming only in the hopes of finding a WorthyOpponent. He doesn't appear to be pleased with Lord Byakuran interrupting his fight with Itadori by [[spoiler:shooting the Shogen]]. It leads him to [[spoiler:kill Byakuran before the old man can shoot Nanashi]]. He also offers Nanashi the pain-removing drug to make their final duel more fair. Nanashi's refusal of fighting without pain raises Luo-Lang's esteem for him further.



* ShutUpHannibal: When [[spoiler:Luo-Lang]] cuts off [[spoiler:Lord Byakuran's]] hands and is about to abandon him, the old jerk starts ranting at him. [[spoiler:Luo-Lang]] puts a stop to it by throwing a knife between his eyes.



* WorthyOpponent: Luo-Lang views Nanashi as one, killing his superior for the chance to fight him.
