* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: Tomohiko alone among the kids murders two of his classmates on the off chance one might be the Extra, and was about to kill Kouichi, only to be stopped by Izumi. When it becomes evident neither of his first victims was the Extra (and further, that he has a very flawed understanding of how the Calamity actually works), Tomohiko expresses no remorse and attempts to continue his rampage. To put that in perspective, Yukio only attacked someone other than Mei by accident and was completely horrified by it, Takako specifically said she wasn't willing to kill Kouichi because she knew he wasn't the Extra, and Izumi was only willing to go that far when she concludes Kouichi was at best complacent in Mei's sadistic murder of Takako. Even taking sanity slippage into account, Tomohiko is the only character who has the demonstrated capacity to be a remorseless, cold blooded murderer.]]

* CanNotSpitItOut: [[spoiler: She figured out who the "Extra" was sometime before the class trip, but didn't want to say anything because it would make Kouichi sad. And at the time, she didn't know that sending the "Extra" back to the grave would end the Calamity]].

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: Kouichi had been in the hospital at the start of the year, so he didn't know anything about "The Calamity" or the measures the class set up to protect themselves. Since he'd already meet Mai once before, he thought nothing of approaching her and starting a conversation, inadvertently violating the conditions of the charm and bringing doom to everyone.]] [[spoiler: [[{{Subverted}} At least... that's what we're lead to believe at first]]. It later turns out that the Calamity had already started back in April with the death of Mai's cousin/sister, so the charm wouldn't have worked anyway.]]

** She never directly does anything horrible to Mei [[spoiler: until everything goes to hell.]] Even when announcing to the class [[spoiler Mei is the Extra]], she never directly accuses her of causing the Calamity on purpose; interpreting the fact she's suffering PTSD and clearly unwell (and receiving no help for it) means her broadcast is basically "Hey, we need to kill [[spoiler: Mei]] because she's the Extra and if we don't, everyone will die." At the very least, it's not personal for her, the same way it is for [[spoiler: Izumi and Tomohiko.]]

**He also manages to [[spoiler: nearly kill Yuuya]] in the film. Bizarrely, Tomohiko takes a break from [[spoiler: trying to help Takako not bleed to death]] to call him out for this when Naoya is not especially okay with [[spoiler: Izumi trying to kill her.]]

* CowardlyLion: Is a nervous guy in the film, but his courageous, kind side helps him save Takako from death and ultimately survives the movie. He's cowardly in the anime and novel, however, without a trace of the heroism: Naoya has to bully him into coming on the class trip ''despite being a Countermeasures officer'' alongside Izumi and Takako (who both go without coercion) and in the anime he [[spoiler: murders two girls by stabbing them in the back.]]



* DemotedToExtra: In the anime. Despite being one of Kouchi's friends and a member of the mystery-solving gang in the manga, he's pretty much sent off-screen right after the beginning of the anime.

* DemotedToExtra: In the anime. Despite being one of Kouchi's friends and a member of the mystery-solving gang in the manga, he's pretty much sent off-screen right after the beginning of the anime. Oddly, the film gives him a much larger role; when Kouichi becomes the nonexistent student alongside Mei, he mentions being shunned by Tomohiko is one of the parts that hurt that most, as they had genuinely become friends.



* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: Tomohiko alone among the kids murders two of his classmates on the off chance one might be the Extra, and was about to kill Kouichi, only to be stopped by Izumi.

to:

**In the film, he also abandons his apparent best friend, Yu Yamada after the later is hit by a car.



* BerserkButton: Not following the rules is enough to earn Izumi's unending ire, although this is justified since the rules are her job and not following them gets people killed. Hurt someone she cares about ([[spoiler: like Takako or Kouichi]]), and she will very coldly [[spoiler: beat you to death.]]



* TookALevelInJerkass: Strange though it may seem for someone most closely the series' antagonist, but Izumi at least has standards in every depiction of her...except the film. When Tomohiko plays the tape explaining how to end the Calamity for her and Takako at the Inn, Takako finally stands up to Izumi (who has bullied her for most of the film) and refuses to kill anyone. Izumi's response is to [[spoiler: stab her in the throat. Not because she might be the Extra; just because ''her best friend'' wouldn't help her instigate a witch hunt against their classmates.]]



** The actual line is mistranslated: she's saying "I'll never let ''this'' go" in regards to Kouichi breaking the rules and getting her best friend, [[spoiler: Yukari]] killed.



* AscendedExtra: She is existent in both the novel and the manga, just as a completely minor character [[spoiler:whose only role is getting killed]]. In the anime she's not exactly a prominent character either, but at least she interacts with Izumi and gets some [[AxCrazy action]].

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Takako is reasonably soft spoken throughout most of the series, and she's genuinely compassionate toward her friends. [[spoiler: After surviving a murder attempt at the hands of the innkeeper]] her tone becomes completely flat and lifeless, and in the end she's screaming and ''laughing.'' This is to drive home the fact she's not herself...[[spoiler: not that anyone else especially noticed or seemed to care, and she's easily one of the most hated characters in the series because of it.]]

** She makes it a point to not let Izumi blame herself for [[spoiler: failing to protect Yukari]] and suggests that blaming ''anyone'' won't solve things, and the class needs to pull itself together. Izumi takes the first part to hear, and ignores everything else she says.
** She never directly does anything horrible to Mei [[spoiler: until everything goes to hell.]] Even when announcing to the class [[spoiler Mei is the Extra]], she never directly accuses her of causing the Calamity on purpose; interpreting the fact she's suffering PTSD and clearly unwell (and receiving no help for it) means her broadcast is basically "Hey, we need to kill [[spoiler: Mei]] because she's the Extra and if we don't, everyone will die."

* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler: She survives in the film, thanks to Tomohiko.]]




to:

**AlternativeCharacterInterpretation is that by that point [[spoiler: Izumi is her only surviving friend, and she can't bear the thought of her dying. To boot, she expressly spares Kouichi at least in part because she knows Izumi has feelings for him, not something she'd likely do if she saw him as a rival for her affections.]]
