* ChastityCouple: His romance with Calista [[spoiler:until the epilogue, where he hugs her, and they kiss briefly when they are wed]]. Especially weird since it's his entire motivation for fighting.

* CovertPervert: Zael isn't exactly a ChasteHero, he has his own little moments. For example, in one of the earlier chapters, you can choose to have Zael examine the bathroom in Syrenne and Mirania's room. He can either walk in and peek on the girls (and get beaten up for it) or he can choose not to go in and listen to a particularly fan-servicey conversation between Syrenne and "Lisa" (Calista).

* DirtyCowardDirtyCoward: When [[spoiler: the Gurak invade, he runs at the sight of three of them, leaving Zael and Calista (his fiancée!) behind. He later claims to have killed over a hundred Gurak, [[HeKnowsTooMuch and imprisons anyone who claims otherwise]]]].

* CanonSue: Invoked, as the whole point of her character is to deconstruct the MarySue archetype. Despite having great power at her disposal, she doesn't have the spine to stop her uncle. When Zael falls in love with her and starts working so that they can be together, she tries pushing him away so that he won't get hurt and [[GoneHorriblyWrong he just gets]] ''[[GoneHorriblyWrong more]]'' [[GoneHorriblyWrong motivated to achieve his goal]]. Incredible things happen around her but, because she's a Grade-A DoomMagnet, they're all ''horrible'' and usually entail her or the people she loves getting hurt, captured, or both... Basically, her life is utterly craptacular ''because'' it has so many Sueish elements. Furthermore, [[GenreSavvy she's fully aware of it too]]. This leads to a heart-to-heart with Syrenne during the finale where she expresses envy for the mercenaries, who became strong on their own terms and got CharacterDevelopment, while the plot was demanding that she be everyone's UnwittingPawn.

Zero Context Example, and that Grey and Gray Morality entry was oddly worded anyway

* DarkIsNotEvil: He is by far the "edgiest"-looking mercenary and gets many scenes that underline just how far he's willing to go to make their dream come true. Despite all this, he's still a FatherToHisMen. ** DarkIsEvil: But, as stated before, he's more of a ''protagonist'' than a true hero. * DeadpanSnarker

* TeamDad * [[UselessUsefulSpell Useless Useful Sword]]: The sword that Dagran wears on his belt was bought when he and Zael were young. Turns out that it was pretty useless as a weapon, so Dagran simply wears it as a reminder of his and Zael's dream. After the Epilogue, Zael (and Dagran in NewGamePlus) can use that sword. It starts out horrifically weak, but when upgraded properly, it becomes an InfinityPlusOneSword.

* [[EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs Every Guy Is Cuter WIth Hair Decs]]: Zael wears a few feathers in his hair. * GenreBlind [=/=] HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: He gives ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Terra]]'' a run for his money in this department. When you don't realise that the guy who ''explicitly wants to genocide the shit out of another race'' is evil [[spoiler:until the start of the third act]], you definitely qualify for these tropes.
